Synergy Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level
1. Grace for Succession (4:14)
Man - born with the nature of evil
All inherited the sin from Adam
No man escaped
The commandments - the law
No one were able to fulfil
No man was pure
Everyone's share was death
All was dark - hopelessness ruled

Light intervened
Annihilating darkness
The path of salvation made clear
For the prodigal human race

Given to mankind
For all to receive
The sacrifice of life
For all to believe

This unnatural act of love
A model for succession
The act of forgiveness
A supernatural force
2. Paradigms (3:42)
The worship of creation
Seeming endless
But it will end
And every knee shall bow

Thoughts of a coincidental existence
And a futureless world corrodes into the
Spinal chord of the narcissistic man
A paradigm shift for worse
My ego is my god
Given authority by the enlightenment
Of science,
The enlightenment of the age of freedom
Freedom - the name in which we legalize all
The name in which we tolerate all

Credibility for truth, image for substance
Weakness and failure
- unbearable elements in life
Subtly opposed through an endless flow of
Constantly replaced trends, neither allowed
To mature nor to fade
The surroundings,
A mirror reflecting the signals
Of admiration that makes my identity
A constant egocentricity providing a
Purging of anything threatening popularity

The peak of this shallowness
Displayed by the so-called stars
In their quest for self-actualisation
This beautiful people experiencing
The illusion of narcissistic prosperity,
Uncritically and boundlessly admired,
Simply for their own sake
3. Psychopath (3:47)
Opposer of the one you claim to serve
Your self-righteousness
Breeding arrogance and pride
Justifying legalism with a distorted
Perception of submission
Salvation by grace,
Christianity by performance

Lust for power, desire to rule,
The beauty of life
The feeling of guilt, your weapon of choice
To control the hearts and thoughts
Of the ones you say you love
They are but shadows
In the periphery of your ego
You are the super-Christian,
Empowered and installed by God
No sin. No mistakes

Psychopath - blinded by hypocrisy
Psychopath - actions of inadequacy

Your moral rearmament of others
Developing shallow minds
With a total lack of identity
Stealing their freedom, the one that was
Bought at a high price
No compassion - No love
The intoxication of power feeding your ego
While your 150 are going to hell
Oblivious to the masquerade,
The idyllic facade
Pulled over their eyes
To blind them from the truth
4. Blood Red Cover (3:37)
Life, an abandoned wreck
In motion, driven into circles
Never ending circles
Nothing new has taken place
Seems like this place will never change

Just a mercy child
In a blood red cover
Just a mercy child
Covered in truth

A roller coaster of feelings
Steering whatever thought and action
Into a pattern
A pattern repeated

Remove the veils
The glory seems weak
The heart needs the light
Of your glorious presence
Regain control
Of this powerless wreck
Let it complete the course of life
5. 26 Miles From Marathon (4:12)
And so it's the end
The hollow end
So speed the process
Again and again
Move as fast as you can
Like the wind
On no end

Horizontal flickering
Like flash before my eyes
Recurring pictures
The holocaust
Over and over
Burnt into my mind
Like bright stars

I will deliver
Your work shall be forever
I will endure
Keep my strength in you

Memories fade
Cease to pause
To measure time
To treasure day
But when I see it
The way I see it

I swear the scissors have moved
At a distance - in space
The constellations have changed
6. Confession of Inadequacy (3:47)
The incomprehensibility of
A love so pure
Too good to be true
It seems

This preposterous act of empathy
Unveiling my insufficiency
The will of God accomplished
Redemption revealed

Realize, repent, receive
Confession of inadequacy
Initiate, admit, believe

I am not my own
- I belong to he who sacrificed
The glory of eternity and fullness of peace
To fathom this mystery
Is beyond what I can express
That he'd endure this path of pain

Realize, repent, receive
Confession of inadequacy
Initiate, admit, believe
Freedom

The incarnation of the one I am?
Inverting the course of history
Hiding the kingdom in the heart of man
For him to share the grace of God
7. Scrape The Surface (3:20)
Where will I return my misgiven motions
Quell and subside the quivering vigour
The inevitable thrust
That swells inside
And drives me off the edge
The bleeding ill that breeds me on mercy
Ruthless and sinister
Obsessive beyond my reach

Metamorphosis
Release me from fury
Metamorphosis
Transforming energy

Will I tread on broken glass
And undisguised
Set atrocities aside
Scrape the surface
Clean from abominations
With a single word
Conquer wrath

Disposed to the evils that haunt me in sleep
They shake the break of dawn
Careless and free
And spear me down
Relentlessly
Smitten with burns
They pierce my mind
They all own their own place in darkness
Light as they may seem as day

Scrape the surface
Clean from abominations
Let go the calamities inside
And respond to the streams of emotion
8. Thrash Synergy (5:20)
Strengthened individuals
Encouraged for unity
We've been pushed to the limit
Through an established motivation
Gathered in love to Christ our head

Come on let's join in synergy
Conspiracy constructed with hope in sight
A rebellious enthusiasm - united by Christ
To vulcanise the spirit filled thrash forever

Revitalization is what we want to see
Of the moving solidarity
By given strength community will be found
Let's exploit our nerve of optimism

By flash we'll go separate ways
By spirit we'll unite
It's time to make a change of mind
To conquer egocentricity

Together we will conjure up
A zealous wish to sacrifice the singularity
For the growth of this body
For the kingdom's progress
9. Aperture (3:11)
Will You be there
when I call
will You be there?

Will You be there
when I fall
Will You be there?

Will You be there?
Will You be there?

Will You be there
when the darkness has no end?

Will You be there
when the light descends?

Will You be there?
Will You be there?

Yes I'll be there
when you call out my name

Yes I'll be there
I am you light
take my hand

Yes I'll be there
I will be there
10. Emancipation (3:20)
The Plague threatening the status quo
Imposed afflictions between
Leviathan and the divine
Who's to blame
And who's to say it isn't so?

Emancipation
Beyond the bare bone
Liberation
Of spirit and soul

The unclear course of nature
Violations, separations
For every action and reaction
A matter of consequence
Ways of changing the score

But the Lord comforts me more
Than the riches of the earth
The cares of the world
For the purse is a dead cause
Far worse than woe
And carries the stamp of human vanity
11. Nihilism 2002 (4:09)
Immediate gratification of desires,
The meaning of life
This propagator of a
Consumeristic lifestyle,
So seemingly benign

This is your entitlement
Living an affluent life
A scrap conduction
A shallow state of mind

The delusion of their raison d'etre
Being nothing more than the
Accumulation of mere things,
Driven into the consciousness
Of precious young minds

An instrument for turning of the brain,
An instrument for death
Compellingly perverted to create
A reality for hiding truth,
Creating a window for
Spiritual blessings on sale

No arduous sacrifice or demands
No restraint of passion
No spiritual disciplines, No God!

This is your religion,
Feeling without intellectual content
This is your religion,
Nihilism 2002!
