The Will to Power Lyrics

Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Drained (4:21)
Trapped - inside this frozen heart
Lives in a fading breath of compassion
Destroyed - by my final deed
All beauty must die

Time to rid your mind of the vermin
Rid it of vermin like me
All you thought you achieved
Is crushed underneath my boot on your chest
I'm the last thing you'll see
Drained - a cut from the blade so sordid
Unpure
Drown - my filth is pulling you under
Hate - I'm bleeding you dry
I'm bleeding you dry
Brace yourself
This is far from over
If you fight, kick and scream
I'll only go slower

Drained - a cut from the blade so sordid
Unpure
Drown - my filth is pulling you under
Hate - I'm bleeding you dry
I'm bleeding you dry
Drained - a cut from the blade so sordid
Unpure
Drown - my filth is pulling you under
Hate - I'm bleeding you dry
I'm bleeding you dry
"When you look down at me
You'll see a fool
When you look up at me
You'll see your lord
When you look straight at me
You'll see yourself"
Now you're mine, a dog on a leash
Salvation at hand, but too far to reach
The sheer thought of it all is making you sick
A gun to your head, all you heard was.. click!

Taking my time to watch you squirm
Mercy is something that you earn
The sound of your body slamming the deck
Is outshined by the sound when I'm snapping your neck

Who will decide and who's to blame?
Place your bets in this high stakes game
There's millions of ways to enter
And only one way to leave

Drained
Unpure
Drown
Hate

Drained - a cut from the blade so sordid
Unpure
Drown - my filth is pulling you under
Hate - I'm bleeding you dry

I'm bleeding you dry
Die
2. Blood Tiles (3:57)
This shit ends now...
Spit it out, what's this all about
Why not say it straight to my face?
So what if you're right, I still sleep well at night
'Cos snakes like you deserve to die

Pick up the pace, I'm breathing down your neck
I bet you never thought it would come to this
I heard what you said - don't fucking lie to me
A message one can't fail to receive
Still lying through busted lips
Start praying you little shit
The end of life as I see fit
White clad walls where we can play
Revenge extracted the crimson way

Blood Tiles
Weeding out the weak with arterial spray
Blood Tiles
Your legend of lies now slipping away
Bring it on, step up to the plate
You better believe I'm ready for you
You act like a bitch, feeding lies and deceit
Here we go - come reap what you sowed

Why so surprised?
You know what you did
Did you really think I'd let it slip?
Suffer the consequence, pay the price
Your fate is now a roll of the dice
Still lying through busted lips
Start praying you little shit
The end of life as I see fit
White clad walls where we can play
Revenge extracted the crimson way

Blood Tiles
Weeding out the weak with arterial spray
Blood Tiles
Your legend of lies now slipping away
Let's go!

So there you lie - soiled and defiled
How does it feel now?
I'm guessing not the same?!

Fucking snap your neck
I'm coming for you
I'll watch you die
Blood Tiles
White clad walls where we can play
Blood Tiles
Revenge extracted the crimson way
Blood Tiles
Weeding out the weak with arterial spray
Blood Tiles
Your legend of lies now slipping away

[Music: Carlsson, Lyrics: Aro, Carlsson]
3. Heroin (4:04)
"All sins tend to be addictive
And the terminal point of addiction is always...
Damnation"
Filled with anguish, you feed on the weak
Seized up by the fear of yourself
Now scabbing the darkness for that quiet place
Where nothing really matters, no thoughts to erase
I am
The image of you
Lodged in there
Running high in your veins
Welcome to my hive
Where you can clear your twisted mind
Lay down by my side
Here you'll see we are two of a kind
Twisting your flesh and burning your skin
Like a virus I find my way in
Choking your last breath of unsoiled air
Look deep in your soul and you'll find me there
I am
The image of you
Lodged in there
Running high in your veins
Step into my hive
Here we're all equally worthless
Stay right by my side
One false step and you might get burned

Surrender me your mind
Now I control your life's desires
I won't betray our feeble kind
Come with me, let's bathe in that tempting fire
Piercing your skin
Push the needle in
I am
The image of you
Lodged in there
Running high in your veins
Welcome to my hive
Where you can clear your twisted mind
Lay down by my side
Here you'll see we are two of a kind
Piercing your skin
Push the needle in
Come with me,
Let's bathe in that tempting fire

[M: Thyselius, Carlsson, L: Aro, Thyselius]
4. Insanity (3:33)
A befitting doom for a generation
A drug ridden culture of mass sedation
Failing to realize its own demise
Falling generation, caught by surprise
Identity crisis
My sanity's priceless
I don't fuckin' like this
Insanity
Poseur-isms and masochisms
Drive the youth to materialism
Falling under the corporate wheel
Crushed in its wake, left with nothing to feel

Diverted perceptions and urban decay
Millions of people are led astray
Not by force, but by their own will
No visible enemy, no men to kill

Our very desires fuel the death machine
We're drowned in smoke and by TV screens
Made to believe that this is the only way
We follow along until our dying day
Emotions thieved from another of their kind
A stolen identity, another man's mind
That which is felt is only felt to achieve
The status quo of what is 'cool' to perceive

Never take heed,
Never listen to warning
Until it's too late,
Then we start the mourning
Insanity
Insanity

Poseur-isms and masochisms
Drive the youth to materialism
Falling under the corporate wheel
Crushed in its wake, left with nothing to feel

Insanity
Insanity
Streets run red with the blood of the people
Self-inflicted, a pain that cripples
No-one else to blame except for ourselves
Recreating this personal hell
A befitting doom for a generation
A drug ridden culture of mass sedation
Failing to realize its own demise
Falling generation, caught by surprise

Identity crisis
My sanity's priceless
I don't fuckin' like this
Insanity
Poseur-isms and masochisms
Drive the youth to materialism
Falling under the corporate wheel
Crushed in its wake, left with nothing to feel

Insanity
Insanity

[M: Carlsson, L: Aro, Sztrajbel]
5. Will to Power (4:48)
"I hate all the fucking human race. I get a kick out of murdering people."

...Many believe that serial killers are insane,
but the most chilling fact is that they are invariably rational and calculating.
They know what they are doing is wrong but they simply do not care.
They are essentially without conscience...

...Multiple murders may involve the most extreme of violent behaviors,
including sadism, necrophilia, or cannibalism,
but this does not mean the killer is insane...

...The reality of the crime is never as perfect as the fantasy,
so serial murderers must kill again and again
in an almost futile attempt to live out their ultimate murderous desires...

A distorted social message
A covert killing spree
Thinning the conventional herd
To forever live on in infamy

You feel my detached hatred
As I become your god
I'll wipe your whole world out
I rip your loved ones limb from limb
I wish you all had one neck
And I had my hands on it
Born to lose, live to kill
Embrace the divinity
The power over life and death
My psychopathic will

You used to think that you were safe
How does that feel now?
Your useless life extinguished
You're now another worthless corpse
I wish you all had one neck
And I had my hands on it

You feel my detached hatred
As I become your god

I'll wipe your whole world out
As I rip your loved ones limb from limb
"I've been all around the world, and I've seen everything but hell,
and I guess I'll see that soon."

"I wish you all had one neck,
and that I had my hands on it."

[Music: Carlsson, Lyrics: McWilliams]
6. Grey (3:47)
You closed your eyes a cold November night
You my lovely light of life, no more shining bright
As the autumn rain turned to bitter snow
I stood outside the world, with nowhere to go
A thousand shades of grey
You erased my world that day
A thousand words to say
All lost in silence to fade away
Caring faces staring right at me
I can't stand their smothering empathy
Like maggots crawling upon rotten meat
A buffet of misery, all you can eat
A thousand shades of grey
You erased my world that day
A thousand words to say
All lost in silence to fade away
A thousand shades of grey
A million moments passed away
A billion pieces of my heart
Spreading like ashes forever dark
You are not alone - Your false sympathy makes me sick
You will get through - There's no happy end to this life of shit
You must be strong - As I put the rope around my neck
Time will heal - The colours leave this broken wreck
A thousand shades of grey
My trail of tears ends here today

A thousand shades of grey
You erased my world that day
A thousand words to say
All lost in silence to fade away

A thousand shades of grey
A million moments passed away
A billion pieces of my heart
Spreading like ashes forever dark
No love, no light
Just shades of grey

[Music: Hedestedt, Skog, Lyrics: Hedestedt]
7. Heretic (3:27)
Side-tracked in your quest for redemption
All you got was a mouth full of cum
"The son of god" you say, well big fucking deal
I'll slay the angels that took you to their grace

Satan saves - Satan saves your soul

I watch you praying for the weak and hopeless
I ask you why? they're fucking lost and useless
You're only wasting your time, blind leading the blind
Name one who'll truly save your soul
Can't fail to miss
The foul stench of piss
And my hand on your head, pushing you down
As you're desperately gasping for air
Who am I?
Whats my name?
I am the beast you wish you could tame
I am the plague that's keeping you sick
I am the heretic
The son of god
What a fucking scam
Holy man?
A fucking deadbeat in a cloak
Now you bought it hook, line and sinker
Another pawn in the global hoax
Deep down within, we're all born of sin
Take heed as I enter your life
Who am I?
Whats my name?
I am the beast you wish you could tame
I am the plague that's keeping you sick
I am the heretic

[Music: Carlsson, Hedestedt, Lyrics: Aro]
8. The Delusion (4:14)
Dusk falls outside my window
As I turn into the other me
In my sleep I leave myself
And become totally free
In this state of subconsciousness
It feels so wonderful to hate
I can't resist the tempting feeling
For the emotions to overtake
Oh God, I want to see you suffer
The pain you caused reversed on to you
Almost real, but still a dream
Without a sound, I can hear you scream
Every breath brings me further
Inside my vengeful mind
The trust I gave, you threw away
You killed my self esteem with a smile
I fight myself to forgive you
But I couldn't hate you more
Every night I see you die
No kiss goodnight, just goodbye
Oh God, I want to see you suffer
The pain you caused reversed on to you
You took it all, so I'll take your life
A dream of blood and a stabbing knife
With your blood and a piece of paper
I leave my legacy to mankind
These are my words of hatred
This is my book of blood
On every page I sealed your fate
In my diary of hate
Oh God, I want to see you suffer
The pain you caused reversed on to you
Almost real, but still a dream
Without a sound, I can hear you scream

Oh God, I want to see you suffer
The pain you caused reversed on to you
You took it all, so I'll take your life
A dream of blood and a stabbing knife

[Music: Hedestedt, Carlsson, Lyrics: Hedestedt]
9. War Hog (3:45)
Filled with hate since I came out of the nutsack
I'm the hog at the end of your rope
Drained of regrets, I can't look back
I am the slayer of hope

Face it
I'm what you wanna see
Even more
What you wanna be

Saturate the spirit of a peaceful man
Kill the one who never took a stand
The stage is set, come join the fun
I bet it sucks at that end of the gun

I.. won't... back... off
Just deal with the fact
Your time has come
Ain't that a bitch, you thought you knew me
My fist in your gut, I bet you feel me
Stare into my eyes, can you see the answer
I'm your death, your hell, your cancer
I'm your death, your hell, your cancer
I'm bringing war
Right to your door
Taste defeat as it sprays your face
The hog now reveling in your disgrace
War would end if the dead could return
And hell is a place where you won't get burned?

Who.. will... save.. you.. now?
War makes thieves
And peace will hang them
Ain't that a bitch, you thought you knew me
My fist in your gut, I bet you feel me
Stare into my eyes, can you see the answer
I'm your death, your hell, your cancer
I'm your death, your hell, your cancer
I'm bringing war
Right to your door
It's not the size of the dog in the fight
It's the size of the fight in the dog
War hog
Fighting for peace is like fucking for virginity

It's not the size of the dog in the fight
It's the size of the fight in the dog
War hog
Fighting for peace is like fucking for virginity
I.. won't... back... off

I'm your death, your hell, your cancer

This... will.. .kill... you

[Music: Carlsson, Lyrics: Aro]
10. The Unsung (7:55)
High tides flood this tainted heart
As I walk tall my path cuts through the crowd
They stare at me, the mindless fools
They envy me, set free, nevermore to follow their rules
I
Sold my soul
Drained of love
I reside with the fallen angels

I
Found my place
Down here in the hole
My home, with the unforgiven
Down here I am
Don't pray for me
Save yourself
There were times when I was a liar
There were times when I did you harm
There's times when I feel regret
But they're far and few in-between
I
Sold my soul
Drained of love
I reside with the fallen angels

I
Found my place
Down here in the hole
My home, with the unforgiven
Down here I am
Don't pray for me
Save yourself
From the unsung
