Sol Invictus Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level MetalMusic       Last modified by level MetalMusic
1. Sol Invictus (2:37)
[Verse 1]
I'm coming, Lord, I'm on my way
Worshiping at the altar of know why
Can't remember which God is my wine
Can't repent if I'm wrong; impartial
Empty rituals, trinkets and fossils
And now, Lord, I'm on my way (my way)
Amen

[Chorus 1:]
Peace ain't coming our way
But the sun keeps burning my face
Where's my faith?
My blasphemy

Keep singin', Lord, I'm on my way
...Home

[Verse 2]
Floorboards and the ceilings are creaking
And the roof is old and leaking
But looking up high to the heavens
How can we declare our independence
From evolution and penance (our way)

[Chorus 2:]
Sin ain't coming our way
But the sun keeps burning my face
When's my faith renewing today?
I believe in something, I think
Where's my faith
My monastery
2. Superhero (5:15)
Go Go Go Go…

Superhero
I'm tugging on your cape
Tell me will your sons
Know their father one day

Leader of men
Leader of men
Get back in your cage
Will you be one of them?

Like an American drug
Makes a mean cock grow
...kill a priest
Makes a superman of glass

Go Go Go

The S on your chest
You're feeling like a god
An order of animal
We try to find a rod

Superhero, Sensei, Nero, smiling, hiding, riding, flying, sighing, sumo

Leader of men
Leader of men
Get back in your cage
Ain't no grave going to hold this body down
The sun rises here to save us now
Its all erased
Storybook years
Sweet memories
Wash it away
Wash it away
Wash it away

Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go!

Leader of men
Leader of men
Leader of men
Leader of men
...
Will you be one of them?

Leader of men
Leader of men
Leader of men
Leader of men
Will you be one of them?

Leader of men
Leader of men
Leader of men
Leader of men
Will you be one of them?

Leader of men
Leader of men
Leader of men
Leader of men
Will you be on of them?

Go Go Go...
3. Sunny Side Up (2:59)
I'll be your leprechaun
Shamrock or lucky charm
(Whoa, yeah)
Tap-dancing all alone
(It's ok)
Dip into the sugar bowl
(Whoa, yeah)

Sunny Side up [x2]
Such a lovely way to start the day
Sunny Side up [x2]
Not the only way to fry an egg
Sunny Side up [x2]

I am just a grain of sand on your beach
With all of my heart
All of my Heart
A drop of rain through your hands

Rainbows will bend for me
Curvy
Honey bees will sting for me
Stingin', stingin'

Sunny Side up [x2]
Such a lovely way to start the day
Sunny Side up [x2]
Dance the night away like Fred Astaire

Come on ride my wave
Ride it all the way
(Sunny side up)
'Til the ocean ends
(Sunny side up)
I'll see you there
(Sunny side up)
4. Separation Anxiety (3:44)
Separate the anxiety [x3]
You know it's mine

Had love come back
Like it was before
House creaking
The hinges on the door
Thoughts creeping

Separating anxiety [x4]
You know it's mine

It's like when your mind
Has a mind of it's own
Please take mine
Don't leave me alone
Capture me

Separation anxiety [x3]
You know it's mine

I can't let you go
Cause you're a part of me
Not apart from me

[?]
Well, it's good enough for me
I cannot separate from this anxiety

Come home and make our truce
Violence is what we learned
Listen in reverence
Why it can not pass
If you only make us
Then violence is what we learn
How can I separate
From this anxiety?

Closing my eyes
5. Cone of Shame (4:40)
I'd like to peel the skin off
This winter day
I'd like to burn the hair off
This summer fling

What love can do when love's lost
Grow overweight
And smile as if
There's nothing left to say
Wear the cone of shame

Town is quiet now
Like it's holding its breath
Stone marks the spot
You know who you are
They outlined it in chalk
Word to the wise
And the barman calls die

I'd like to peel your skin off
So I can see what you really think
Or if there is anything
Under that cone of shame

I'd like to strip the bone off
So I can see how you're really made
And see how you really take
Your special pleasure

I'd like to pull your wings off
Read your lines like a gypsy
Just as lonely as anything
So infinite

Cone of shame covering all
You're only happy when you're pissing me off
Cone of shame covering all
I'm only happy when I'm pissing you off
6. Rise of the Fall (4:09)
Rise and fall
Through it all
An olympus of friends

Highs and lows
And the broken prose
And our losses we'll weigh

Game on [x6]
[x2]

Buildings fall
But we're standing tall
Where only chimneys remain

Beg for law
With a crying jaw
Like a jungle in flames

Game on [x6]

Gravity
It pulls our waves
And it creates
Monuments of flame
Every house in town
Burn it down
Burn it all down

Burn, burn, down, down...

Coming
The moments grow weak
Coming
With gloves at your throat
Burn it
Into the grave
Burn it
The freedom with heat
Burn it
Electrical thing
Burn it
Smell the white flame
Burn it
Smell the white flame
Burn it
Smell your filthy life
Burning!

What in this life
Lifts us up so high
Down to this campfire?

Around the coast
To the junkyards
When will I see you again?
7. Black Friday (3:19)
This is only a test

1, 2, what you gonna do?
3, 4, 5, twistin' your arm and your eye
You will buy

Step right up, donate a memory
To the bank of love, you loan your daydreams

[Chorus:]
BUY IT!
[x2]

Black Friday's come 'n gone

Buy me a future regret
A shrink wrapped fantasy, that I'll wanna forget

In the age of the mercenary
In the nursing home where river swallows the sea
That's where we'll be, with guns

[Chorus]

Into the age of scrutiny
And the grandest frappe
Well I ain't gonna pay
Trimming the tree, I can hang, I won't swing
It's only a test

[Chorus x3:]
I'll pry my seat
From the children's graves
Hear the angels sing

All the zombies walk on Black Friday

It's a riot at the salad bar
Predatory lenders
Safari mission is far but you paid for them
To kill your mom

[Chorus x2]

Kill 'em now!!

This is only a test
8. Motherfucker (3:33)
Force-fed more than we’d eat in the wild
Grazed on a mash that could suffocate a child
Bloated, promoted in an ode to pomp and style
Moistening the feed while we choke upon the bile

Cornering the market on the geese without the bones
Hushing out the public in a strike without a drone
The cage became collapsible, our sticks equipped with stones
Get the motherfucker on the phone, the phone

Get the motherfucker on the phone, the phone
Get the motherfucker on the phone, the phone
Get the motherfucker on the phone, the phone
Get the motherfucker on the phone, the phone

Hello motherfucker, my lover
You saw it coming

Step aside the scruples in a stratagem of strain
A smallpox-laden blanket, invisible with stains
Inoculating bastards, bloodied pecking pain
Distemper has a hold, distemper has a hold

We took the second sip from a cup we made of bones
The first sip was a ruse, a trick so aptly thrown
The truth is that our youth was a carpet laid in stones
Get the motherfucker on the phone

Hello motherfucker, my lover
You saw it coming

Goodbye motherfucker, my lover
You had it coming

Get the motherfucker on the phone
Get the motherfucker on the phone
Get the motherfucker on the phone
Get the motherfucker on the phone

Get the motherfucker on the phone
Get the motherfucker on the phone, the phone
9. Matador (6:08)
When lonesome came over me
A future shadow
Her ghost stood there, sang to me
Farewell, so long

I’ll awake you
From this living sleep
We’ll walk the shore
Where you were born
And bedded me

Pull the white sheet off your face
March forward, my son
A battle beyond frozen years
Only for dog's ears

We will rise from the killing floor
Like a matador

The stained glass
A bovine ass
Can see right through
Every truth-soaked lie

Letters will trace every step
Out of this world
With every date, every date

We will be where you will be no more
No more

The stained glass
Or the hangman’s ass
Would serve you well
Now we’re coming back

Out of the words
Of these ghosts
We’ll jump the gates
And left to rise, we will rise

We will rise from the killing floor
Like a matador

And the dead live
May the dead live
And the dead live
What more can we give?
May the dead live
May the dead live
And the dead live
The dead live…
10. From the Dead (3:06)
Homecoming parade
Welcome home my friend
There'll be no more sleeping on this forest floor
Open heaven's door

Around you, 'round you
Around you
'round you [x2]
Around you

Comin' 'round the bend
Welcome home my friend
There'll be no more weeping like a canyon gorge
Hear your lion roar

Around you, 'round you

I can see you shining like a morning sun
Hear your lion roar [x2]

Around you, 'round you

I can see the parade
Welcome home my friend

We come back to history in present times
Watch your watch unwind
We've been turning mysteries to nursery rhymes
Sigils and more signs
Around you
Watch your watch unwind

Back from the dead
I can see the end

Welcome home my friend
