Soul of a New Machine Lyrics

(16)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Martyr (4:05)
What I thought was life
Came to an end
Born into a world
I never asked for this
I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away!

Born into hardship
A world of destruction
Suffer, bastard
Suffer, bastard
I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away!

Take me to heaven
Adorn me with wings
Suffer, bastard
I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away!

Suffer, bastard...

[Repeat 1st verse, 2nd verse]

I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away
2. Leechmaster (3:54)
What you feel
Are your needs
All you want
Is to be loved

Pain!...Love!...Pain!

But can you give
Someone else
The same love
That you want

Pain!...Love!...Pain!
Pain!...Love!...Pain!

Come and take my pain
And soon you will see
That I will taste your pain
Then both of us can bleed

I loved you once
Now go away
I loved you once
Please stay away

Your emotions
Are out of control
A battered soul
Your love means shit

Pain!...Love!...Pain!
Pain!...Love!...Pain!

Come and take my pain
And soon you will see
That I will taste your pain
Then both of us can bleed

I loved you once
Now go away
I loved you once
Please stay away [X2]
3. Scapegoat (4:33)
Judges have decimated
Meanings of our laws
Already guilt?
Something has a flow
Wrongly accused
Blindly confused
Open your eyes
Try to realize

[Chorus:]
Don't you know
You can't see
Too damn blind
To judge me!

Wrongly accused
Blindly confused
Open your eyes
Try to realize

[Chorus]

Laws are meant to follow
But they've mislead you
Conceal their meanings
So they can suit you
Misjudged by the system
No one ever knows
No one
No one knows
No one
No one
No one knows...

Judges have decimated
Meanings of our laws
Already guilt?
Something has a flow
Wrongly accused
Blindly confused
Open your eyes
Wake up, realize!

[Chorus, repeat 3rd verse]

Scapegoat
Scapegoat
Scapegoat
Scape - Goat
Scape - Goat
4. Crisis (3:46)
You that I despite
Repentance of sorts
Death comes naturally
Not from a hated war
Repentance
Repentance of faith
Repentance of hope
Repentance of hate

[Chorus:]
Not my war
Soldiers marching on
Not my war
Soldiers marching on

On your feet!
Crisis at hand
On your feet soldier!
Crisis at hand
On your feet soldier
On your feet motherfucker!

[Chorus]

Crisis
Crisis
Crisis

[Chorus]

Crisis
Crisis
Crisis
Crisis
5. Crash Test (3:46)
Some men believe
Animals aren't seen
Testing on their minds
Testing with their lives
You can't believe
Not even perceive
Animals that die
Animals that cry

[Chorus:]
Crash test! So what!
Crash test! So what!

Catastrophes
To the animal species
Politically correct
On animals, to dissect?
What does it mean
When animals can dream?
Destroying a pure life
Only for a price

[Chorus]

Animals that die
Animals that cry
Testing on their minds
Testing with their lives [X2]

Crash! Test!

Animals that die
Animals that cry
Testing on their minds
Testing with their lives

[Repeat 1st verse, Chorus]

Crash!
6. Flesh Hold (2:32)
Breaking out
this stifled room
A jail cell, a steel tomb
To see the light
My mere existence
God's kill in sight
Confined in madness

Jurors hate criminal minds
They're making dates for killing time
Breaking out this stifled room
A jail cell, a steel tomb
One has to fight
For dissension
God's kill in sight
Confined in madness

Wasted life, tasted
Wasted life, tasted [X2]

Kill me!
Kill me!
Kill me!
Kill me!

So let me die
So let me die

Wasted life, tasted
Wasted life, tasted

One has to fight
For dissension
God's kill in sight
Confined in madness
Jurors hate criminal minds
They're making dates for killing time
7. Lifeblind (3:52)
Chosen to speak
Truth of the weak
Where is your god?
Truth has been lost

Where is the way?
Whose life will pay?
No one is wrong
Grief is too strong

Lose the way
Pain today
Who can say
Who will pay
No wisdom
No vision

[Repeat 2nd verse]

Lose the way
Pain today
Who can say
Who will pay
No wisdom
No vision

All is lost
Pain is lost
All is lost
Pain is lost [X2]
8. Scumgrief (4:07)
Cry, cry, cry, cry

Wires around your arms
Like wires around your head
A crucifix of me
Above your bed

I've seen your wounds
That you can't hide
You bleed well
When I cry

[Chorus:]
Cry, cry, cry
Scumgrief, Scumgrief
Scumgrief, Scumgrief

Smell the rats of deviance
Coursing through your veins
Rotting faith in your self
Confined alone to decay
I've seen your wounds
That you can't hide
You bleed well
With the rat inside [X2]

[Repeat Chorus]
9. Natividad (1:04)
10. Big God/Raped Souls (2:39)
[Intro:]
In America today, every 25 fucking seconds someone is viciously raped,
someone is brutally violated; 250 times a day someone is murdered,
someone's life is taken,
In America;
This is America,
This is America,
and I love America,
I love America!

No remorse for the pain
Look into the eyes of death
Strong man cannot endure
Big god of this earth

Liar!
Big god, no god!

Take back this life
Give back the world
"Woe to you of Earth and sea"
Big god will always be

Liar!
Big god, no god!
Burn!

[Raped Souls:]

God raped souls
Of our lives
Hammers crush all our lives
Just like clockwork
They'll crush our lives
11. Arise Above Opression (1:51)
Rise above, rise above
Steal away to hide your shame
Rise above, rise above!

Rise above your oppression
Above the one that hates you
Above the one that lies
Above the pain that hates
Death! Fear! Rage!

Rise above your depression
Above the one that kills
Above the one that hates
Above all of the pain
Fear! Death! Rage!

Rise above, rise above
Rise above
Rise
Rise
Rise

Rise above your oppression
Above the pain and suffering
Above the one that hates you
And kills you
Through all of your life
12. Self Immolation (2:47)
Skin
Your scars
Surface is
Rusty blades

[Chorus:]
Self immolation crying out
Self immolation crying out
Self immolation crying out
Self immolation crying out

Oblivion
Your weakness
Is your temper
Is your temper

[Repeat Chorus]

Your god
High above
In your veins
Liquid sky

[Repeat Chorus]

Immortal
Your savior
Destroys you
Destroys you

[Repeat Chorus]
13. Suffer Age (3:40)
Compressed youthful voices
Suffer age
Below John's floors
Spoilage
Lingering death
Gagging your fears
Dead in horror
Grizzly facial stare

Unbelievable atrocity
Hateful monstrosity
Draining scientific minds
Pathological deeds
Creator
Executioner
Heresy
God's vision destroyed

Sinister joker
Childhood reams
Laughing corruption

Compressed youthful voices
Suffer age
Below John's floors
Spoilage
14. W.O.E. (2:33)
Caught beneath visions of hatred
Drowning fast in sounds of silence
Caught between divisions of hate
Can't breathe under this weight of existence

[Chorus:]
Too strong,
Too strong for you
Too strong,
Too strong for you

[Repeat 1st verse, Chorus]

Drowning
Drowning
Drowning
Drowning [X2]

[Repeat 1st verse, Chorus]
15. Desecrate (2:35)
Desecrate the vows within
Sanctify all your fears
Desecrate the holy church
Desecrate

Fill the abyss
With your hatred
Slaughter my child
Before your eyes
Fill the abyss
With your hatred
Slaughter my child

[Repeat 1st verse, 2nd verse]

Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Drink his blood like wine
Taste his body like bread
He's not my god
He's not my god
He's - Not - My - God

Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Drink his blood like wine
Taste his body like bread
He's not my god
He's not my god
He's - Not - My - God
He's - Not - My - God
He's - Not - My - God

Not my god!
Desecrate!
Not my God!
Desecrate!
16. Escape Confusion (3:59)
Escape, escape

Escape confusion
Escape animosity [X2]

From morality
A morbid animosity
Addicted to the epidemic
That deteriorates progression
Escape confusion
Escape animosity

Desperately washing away
The gore that's hidden beneath the dismay
Thoughts of eternal despair
And self hate
Escape confusion
Escape animosity

Terrorism within
Dreams become reality
Visions of hope
Attemp to escape
Attemp to escape
Attemp to escape
Attemp to escape the sickness!

Terror
Dreams become reality
Visions of hope
Attemp to escape
Attemp to escape
Attemp to escape the sickness!

[Repeat 1st verse]
17. Manipulation (3:30)
Your conniving words
Are childishly insane
To get what you want
You'll say anything
In your mind
You lust to control me
You lust
For control

[Chorus:]
Mold me, fold me
Mold me, fold me

My pain is your pleasure
My agony excites you
Desperate for a change
But change comes within
I'm not staying
Not around you
I'm stronger than you think
Much stronger than you

[Repeat Chorus]

Molding and folding
Lusting for control [X3]

Longing to control
Those without esteem
Ignorant pawns
Of your pathetic dreams

Dying to control
Those without esteem
Ignorant pawns
Of your pathetic dreams

Molding and folding
Lusting for control

Hatred is a tool
Thoughtlessly you use
Ruin an only friend
With misleading rules
Contain your own rage
Give yourself praise
'Cause you have no shame
With your callous game

[Repeat Chorus]
