Fade to Black Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Lights Out (5:12)
Someone has finally done it again
Greed killed the sunshine and blackened all light that remained
There is no where to turn
Time has passed but no one learned
Did the dark ages never go away
Has the world become grey
Gods are obeyed
Remember to scream and shout
As lights are out

The Saints and the Holy won't give up the fight
Their freedom of conscience is pure like the sword of the knight
There is no where to turn
Time has passed but no one learned
Did the dark ages never go away
Has the world become grey
Gods are still obeyed
Remember to scream and shout
As lights go out

Someone has finally done it again
Greed killed the sunshine and blackened all light that remained
In the end they will burn
But someone new will always return
The dark ages might be here to stay
In a world that's turned grey
The gods are obeyed
Remember to scream and shout
As lights are out
All lights out

Deus vobiscum, A cruce salus, A Deo et Rege
Memento mori, A cruce salus, A Deo et Rege

Is it no god except god
Can it really be true

As lights go out
Scream and shout
It can't be right
No more sun
Forever gone
I saw it fade to black
It faded to black

Lights out
2. In a Dungeon Close to Hell (3:32)
I don't know what's happening to me
I'm not the man I used to be
Not shine that everyone can see

One too many perfect lies
One too many reptiles
Will take us to the end
Someone has to pay the price
People are dying
And the children cry

It feels like I'm caught in the middle of evil
In a dungeon close to hell
It feels like I'm caught in the middle of evil
Or maybe I'm under a spell

What was pure has rotten long ago
And now it's burning far below
Some distant screams of truth still echoes

One too many perfect lies
One too many reptiles
Will take us to the end
Someone has to pay the price
People are dying
And the children cry

It feels like I'm caught in the middle of evil
In a dungeon close to hell
It feels like I'm caught in the middle of evil
Or maybe I'm under a spell

One too many perfect lies
Someone has to pay the price
Far too many perfect lies
The children are dying

This must be evil in a dungeon close to hell
It feels like I'm caught in the middle of evil
3. The Darkness Within (3:52)
Losing my dreams in the darkness within

Have you ever had a vision
That evoked the spirits of despair
They will sever me form it all
I might be blind but I know what I feel
Hear no evil, see no evil
Or be forever doomed

Losing my dreams in the darkness within
And now my soul is fading fast
I never thought the pain would last
Nothing can gleam in my darkness within
Forever black, a state of mind, a way of life
Just a different kind

Are you clever or just pretending
How can you stand to feign what is not
I could never fake who I am
My mental picture of the future is dusk

Hear no evil, see no evil
Or be forever doomed

Losing my dreams in the darkness within
I'm losing all my dreams, my soul is fading fast
I never thought the pain would last
Nothing can gleam in my darkness within
Forever black, a state of mind, a way of life
Just a different kind

Caught in between where nothing can gleam
And a place that holds a ray of light
Surrounded by a solid night
Oh stay away, the solid night
Oh, stay away
Losing my dreams in the darkness within
Nothing can gleam in my darkness within
Forever black, a state of mind, a way of life
Just a different kind
4. Hollow Soul (3:40)
Must I be cruel to be kind towards me
Is what is true what is real
Different opinions are sold by the pound
While facts are revealed without sound

I knew it, I saw it, I heard it, I felt it
I'll never be the same again and I don't care
The overcrowded emptiness
Did make my hollow soul complete
What's been created
No one will believe
It is out on parole
My hollow soul
My hollow soul
A useless and cold hollow soul

We have to choose between evil and good
Thus far I have understood
But who can decide about where one should turn
When you're damned either way and must burn

No point to, keep trying, I sell out, they're buying
'll never be the same again and I don't care
The overcrowded emptiness
Did make my hollow soul complete
What's been created
No one will believe
It is out on parole
My hollow soul
My hollow soul
A useless and cold hollow soul

The overcrowded emptiness
Has made my hollow soul
What's been created
No one will believe

My hollow soul
My hollow soul
A useless and cold hollow soul
My hollow soul
5. Different Shades of Black (3:13)
I don't want to be the one that can see
Through the mist of the future
I want to be able to see colours of the rainbow
After the rain goes away and the sun shows
Cause I can only see

Different shades of black
I dream in different shades of black

No more to say, don't want to stay
It's been like this forever
Not out of my mind, but will be in time
If I don't find a way to change what is grey and black
A shadow attack, a shadow attack

Different shades of black
I dream in different shades of black

In my dreams there's no colour anymore
Nothing's quite the way it used to be before

Different shades of black
I dream in different shades of black
6. Powertools (3:43)
I see warfare, I see hate crimes
Someone's laughing, oh it is time
I was lonely, and felt afraid
I trusted someone, then I was betrayed

Never again, I won't be no fool
No more will powertools
Make a slave out of me, out of you
That was all in the past
Sacred icons, holy men
That dreams of holy land
You won't rule with powertools

We all have scarred pasts
I have my cross to bear
The cost was dear, and interest was high
But now it's clearer, I' out the other end
And for the rest of you, you mustn't give up the ghost

Never again, I won't be no fool
No more will powertools
Make a slave out of me, out of you
That was all in the past
Sacred icons, holy men
That dreams of holy land
You won't rule with powertools

End of an era
As the false idol gets clearer
When search of power becomes a morbid lust
Life turns to ashes and dust remains dust

Never again, I won't be no fool
No more will powertools
Make a slave out of me, out of you
You won't fool me with your
Sacred icons, holy men
That dreams of holy land
End of an era
You won't rule with powertools

Powertools make a slave out of me, out of you
Make a slave out of me, out of you
No more
7. The Ultimate Game (4:20)
If only someone had told me before
Not to be trustful or sure
It would have spared me from sorrow and pain
I had to learn the hard way but now I know the rules

It's the ultimate game

A play about life and death
Disguised as a game of chess
But no one can win at the end
A one-too-many sacrifice
No remorse, just endless lies
The un-human race must survive

The kings and the queens of the uh-human
Will be here till the end of days
But I will see to that they ruled in vain
They must learn the hard way'
Those crowned and gilded fools

It's the ultimate game

A play about life and death
Disguised as a game of chess
But no one can win at the end
A one-too-many sacrifice
No remorse, just endless lies
The un-human race must survive

Die, in the name of god
Die, in the name of anything

It's the ultimate game

A play about life and death
Disguised as a game of chess
But no one can win at the end
A one-too-many sacrifice
No remorse, just endless lies
The un-human race must survive

The kings and the queens of the uh-human
Will be here till the end of days
Come the end, the end, the end, the end
It's the end
8. Desire and Pain (5:20)
Come darkness, come darkness
Let's go it again
Let's show them our demons
Dessire and Pain

Once upon a time
I thought good of mankind
But I'm not a fool anymore

As Lucifer awaits us
Beware of the upside down cross

Disease spreading egos
Of people insane
Let's show what you're made of
Desire and Pain
You're Satan's whores

It seems so long ago
I was caught by the flow
But now that fool is dead

As Lucifer awaits us
Beware of the upside down cross

Sometimes I wish I was blind
Or could wake up from a dream
Cause as the world kept on spinning
Around and around and around
It all fell apart before my eyes

I'm hypnotized
I'm paralyzed
I'm far from home
It's crowded here
They are all too near
But still I'm alone

Now Lucifer awaits us
Beware of the upside down cross

Come Lucifer
Desire and Pain
9. Diamond Dust (3:56)
I can see my breath in front of me
Ice crystals floating in the air
Creating non-symmetric frozen dreams
Winter land all around me
Freezing me old
Riming my glee
Winter land all that I see
Oh no

Too long since I brought the angels down
Now I suffer far below
No more pleasing the undeserving kind, no
Winter land all around me
Making me breath Diamond Dust
Winter land all that I see
Oh no

I'm breathing Diamond Dust
I'm breathing Diamond Dust
Diamond Dust

Winter land all around me
I'm breathing Diamond Dust
Winter land all around me
Set me free, leave me be
No, no, no, no, no
All I see is Diamond Dust
10. I Believe In Sin (7:10)
Do you believe in heaven
Do you think they'll let me in
Could not avoid the deadly seven
Could not avoid temptation of heavenly sin
But when darkness calls for the last time
I am sure there's a place for all
Follow the angels
Though some angels fall
Some angels fall

I don't believe there's a heaven
I don't believe there's a hell
I believe in sin
I believe in sin
Condemned by the people it flourish within

Do you believe in hell
Do you believe that I belong there
I aimed for the sky buy then I feel
A shadow always follow you so beware
Now when darkness forever hides the sun
And you can hear the angels call
Remember, some angels fly but far from all
I've seen them fall

I don't believe there's a heaven
I don't believe there's a hell
I believe in sin
I believe in sin
Condemned by the people it flourish within
I believe in sin

It's hard to believe
But I know what I saw
I can't explain
And I can't let it go
Now the memory lives on deep with-in-side of me
It seems to be clear
What goes up must come down
Does not seem matter
With angels around
Once so proud they touched the sun
But with flaming wings they fall down

The angels are falling...
