The Twisted Rule the Wicked Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Dead Breed (4:33)
Like a ship lost at sea,
That's all we'll ever be,
A suicidal breed,
Shaped from this tainted life we live
So what can you tell me,
That I don't already know,
You're already my bottle of pills,
And companion as I go

This ripped up soul,
Will it ever change this life Iive,
No never...

We're dying within,
'Cos we're living it our own way,
today, tomorrow
Tell me brother,
Will you ever bleed for me?

No deposit, No return,
Story of my life,
My anger hides within,
But will never cloud my eyes

Like a ship lost at sea,
That's all we'll ever be,
I've had enough of your world,
There's nothing you can tell me

This ripped up soul,
Will it ever change this life Iive,
No never...

We're dying within,
'Cos we're living it our own way,
today, tomorrow
Tell me brother,
Will you ever bleed for me?
Will you ever bleed for me,
'Cos the only one who bleeds is me
Will you ever bleed for me?
As I die!
2. Self Appointed God (4:11)
A shattered soul born,
From a loss of faith,
Your empty mind filled,
With the wrath of god

Now your broken heart,
Will never heal your scars,
But you'll be saved,
From religious starvation

As I become your guiding star!
The twisted rule the wicked,
A beginning with no end

The calm becomes the restless,
As I am your
Self appointed god

Same order, new messiah,
Define my name,
Your my puppet my blind disciple

On your knees you'll pay,
Obey the faith of the bleeding heart

And you'll find your way,
to salvation through pain and fire

As I am your self appointed god!
The twisted rule the wicked,
A beginning with no end

The calm becomes the restless,
As I am your
Self appointed god

Same order, new messiah,
Define my name,
Your my puppet my blind disciple

On your knees you'll pay,
Obey the faith of the bleeding heart

The twisted rule the wicked,
A beginning with no end

The calm becomes the restless,
As I am your
Self appointed god!
3. Waste (3:58)
This is my diary of broken dreams,
A monument over me,
Page after page twists my mind with grief

What I should but never did,
How could I ever be so wrong?
Crucified, Upon an empty sandglass,
My life is gone, I am none,
Sentence to mediocraty,
Sentence by myself

Forgotten, Forsaken,
Frustrated when nothing more remains
Forgotten, Forsaken,
Wasted, I am in vain

I had a life, I had a dream,
Places to go where I'd never been,
Visions so brutally ruined,
`Cos I didn't dare to try

Forgotten, Forsaken,
Frustrated when nothing more remains
Forgotten, Forsaken,
Wasted, I am in vain
Am I in vain?

People spend thier life
regretting the things they never did
All those times they turned away
was yet another dream unfullfilled
What I should, I never did,
How could I be so wrong?
How could I be so wrong?
Was I ever right?
4. Life Relentless (3:14)
This fraction of time,
Will it humble our thinking
or laugh in our face
Beaten and torn on bruised knees crawling,
It decomposes my soul

Fall - constantly falling,
Call - I'm forever just calling,
Get no answer, No relief,
Numbness takes control

Fall - constantly falling,
Fear - I'm forever just running,
Cry - I'm pathetically crying, When I...

Feel and feed the foetus in my mind,
Seeking refugee where pain resides

I am the foetus of my time,
Born to this life relentless

Rattle the chains,
To this mental enslavement,
Charismatic abuse

Solitude hands me my tool of destruction,
Darkness fills the room

Crawl - on bruised knees crawling,
It's dark - I'm forever just fumbling,
Cry - I'm pathetically crying, When I...

Feel and feed the foetus in my mind,
Seeking refugee where pain resides

I am the foetus of my time,
Born to this life relentless
5. Autumn Scars (2:20)
[Poem by Jonas Deroueche]

How extravagant my shadow,
In october five times my height
Hence my silhouette's grandeur,
A reflection of lost glory

Splendid seed sowed in spring,
In november harvested wine of sorrow
The sap contaminated lifeblood forever,
Bliss my souls' inmost growth
6. Bed of Roaches (4:09)
Night,
Another night of the damned,
Standing at the border to insanity land

Dance of the dead in the midnight hour,
Touching your cold lips,
Shivering of lust

Apathetic you stare,
Into my infected soul,
I close my eyes,
Dream away,
As I lose control

And now your mine forever,
Forever you are mine,
Now your mine forever

Until the end,
Until the end of time...

The love that you denied,
Was the reason why you died

The love that you denied,
Is the reason why, Why I die...

You're lying dead on your bed of roaches,
Dead, Dead in everlasting sleep

You're lying dead on your bed of roaches,
Dead, Dead only mine to keep
7. Top of the World (5:03)
Born and raised under daddy's protective wings,
Sheltered from all the ugly things in life

But didn't daddy tell you,
There are places where you don't belong,
Executive seats,
In charge of my life,
Music industry

And if he did,
Why didn't you listen?
So you could have spared us
the unpleasent experience
of ever meeting you.

Promises broken,
Money never seen
Your pockets never deep enough,
Always crying for more

'Cos you're - Lying, Stealing, Cheating
Your not on top of the world

How could we ever fall for your shit,
I guess you shouldn't believe,
What you just can't see

If I had a penny for every lie
I would gladly pay just to watch you die
Top of the world
Lying, Stealing, Cheating, Fucking us over
If I had a penny for every lie
I would gladly pay just to watch you die
I want to watch you die!
Top of the world
8. Slender Messiah (6:06)
He's building a mountain for you
You're so filled with your self,
Never wrong always right

Always the winner in your own little world,
Fantastic, Always on top

Well, The bigger the ego the harder the fall,
Please man, are you for real

Your myths and your lies
really makes my eyes bleed,
Delude your surroundings

Pretending to be something that you're not,
You're only...

Deceiving your self
Hypocritical liar,
To believe in your self
you're a slender messiah

Take credit from others,
Steal your ideas,
Duplicate with no remorse

Try to see,
The world isn't in orbid around you,
Even when we have seen

The true nature of your scheme,
you're still pretending
you're something you're not
You're only...

Slender messiah
the god when all else has failed
Building a mountain,

By using small fragments of truth
The joke is on you!
9. For Your Misery (3:50)
You want an answer,
Well, What do you want to hear,
That I think you're special

And that I really care?
That's where you wrong,
'Cos I'll never be,
More than I expect from me!

The whole of me dedicated to your misery,
You're a whore, I'm a hero

Don't chew more than you can swallow
Don't chew more than you can swallow
Don't chew more than you can swallow

I stand corrected,
Sorry I made you feel that way,
Small word of comfort,
You're not the first

You try to be a match for me,
Don't waste your breath,
'Cos this is what you made me

The whole of me dedicated to your misery,
You're a whore, I'm a hero

Don't chew more than you can swallow

What I want, And what I need,
Is still something you can't bring me

Here's an answer to you question,
My lies as true as yours

Maybe not the one you wanted,
But the only one you'll get

You'll never be a match for me,
Don't waste your breath,
'Cos this is what you made me

So how does it feel?
This I do belive,
The lies that you concieve

What goes around comes around,
And twice as much from me
10. Embrace the Moment (4:03)
I guess I am just...
Torn between life or silence,
As the pain in my eyes becomes to clear

Destroyed! By the sounds so empty,
Empty as the answer to my prayers

God! You're still robbing my cradle,
Your crawings for my love erased my mind

I stand raped and lonely...
Embrace the moment,
My life in your hands

Divine torment,
As I feel the love I fear

You push me aside and mock my tears

Lifeless the passion, priceless the gain,
Broken the heart, From a life insane

Guilt is the spike,
The thorn in my eye,
Corroding the chains to an abusive mind

Embrace the moment,
My life in your hands

Divine torment,
As I feel the love I fear

You push me aside and mock my tears
Guilt is the spike,
The thorn in my eye...

With tired eyes I watch,
Repeat itself,
But the circle's incomplete

Serrated blade cuts the noisome vein,
And I drain myself from pain

Embrace the moment,
My life in your hands

Divine torment,
As I feel the love I fear

You push me aside and mock my tears

Lifeless the passion, priceless the gain,
Broken the heart, From a life insane

Guilt is the spike,
The thorn in my eye,
Corroding the chains to an abusive mind

And I become one with myself...
11. Cleansweep (3:45)
God of make-believe
In your world
Nothing's what it seems
Master Of pre-judgement
What do you really know
about the things we do

We know who you are
This time you've gone too far
The scar runs too deep

Thanks for the inspiration
To rise above you all
Second coming
Back with a vengeance
Judgement day
Cleansweep

Dreams spoiled by your greed
When honey turns to mud
you can't succeed
You're laughing now
But not for long
Operation cleansweep
has just begun

We know who you are
This time you've gone too far
The scar runs too deep

Thanks for the inspiration
To rise above you all
Second coming
Back with a vengeance
Judgement day
Cleansweep

Try me, try me...!
