Chasing the Grail Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Under Blackened Skies
All I ever knew
When you left was suddenly taken
My skies no longer blue
And my faith mortally shaken
Pain From my pores meat
With the screams of sharpened cries
Will I have to live my life
Under Blackened Skies

Prick my skin with your pin do me in
But don't forget to say you care... for me

Tables turn like seasons change
Ups and downs of passing years arrange
Confused from my heart blinding both of my eyes
I realize I live my life
Under Blackened Skies

Crying out for a Savior
but my screams nobody hears
All I need is your shelter
and the strength to concur my fears
I don't think I'm strong enough
to make it through the night
So I have to live my life
Under Blackened Skies

Sing my song do me wrong don't be long
But don't forget to say you don't need me

Feed my pain I'm drowning please don't leave
You think I'm blind but I don't want to see

Tables turn like seasons change
Ups and downs of passing years arrange
Confused from my heart blinding both of my eyes
I realize I live my life
Under Blackened Skies

Lost beyond the horizon
My sun drifting away
Swallowed up by the blackness
No light to help me feel safe
The shadows start to whisper
But they only tell me lies
Now I have to live my life
Under Blackened Skies

Hearts they break and shatter bleed me dry
The pain and fear shows damage from your lies

Tables turn like seasons change
Ups and downs of passing years arrange
Confused from my heart blinding both of my eyes
I realize I live my life
Under Blackened Skies

All I ever knew
When you left was suddenly taken
My skies no longer blue
And my faith mortally shaken
Pain From my pores meat
With the screams of sharpened cries
Will I have to live my life
Under Blackened Skies
2. Martyr No More
I can climb the highest peak
I can stop the war
I can force the dumb to speak
I can lock the door
I can locate treasures lost
I can see the blind
I can buy, no mind the cost
I can read your mind

It's so hard to let go of the past
Forever on my mind
I never dreamed things could change so fast
What do I have left?

I won't be your martyr anymore
No longer victimized by your scorn
Nevermore the passive one in this War
Cause' I won't be your martyr anymore

I can walk the needles eye
I can pay the price
I can live after I die
I can roll the dice
I can fly where eagles nest
I can stand or fall
I can pass the hardest test
I can beat them all

It's so hard to let go of the past
Forever on my mind
I never dreamed things could change so fast
What do I have left?

I won't be your martyr anymore
No longer victimized by your scorn
Nevermore the passive one in this War
Cause' I won't be your martyr anymore

I can hear the silent scream
I can pull the switch
I can orchestrate a dream
I can burn the witch
I can choose not to decide
I can ride the sky
I can ebb and flow the tide
I can wonder why
3. Grail
I've been searching oh I fear
For what seems like a thousand years
Only to find that I'm losing my mind
I've been standing to the side
A blackened soul as my guide
Only to see there's a price to be free

You can cast a magic spell
Or pull the sword from the the stone
Until you find the Grail that you've been looking for
You'll always be alone

Where is this Grail I've been searching for?
So many years since you've been gone
On all the roads I have traveled on
Where is this grail I've been searching for?

I have run so far away from the stench of decay
Only to learn I should never have turned
I'm completely at fault, to a pillar of salt
I've been reduced feel the pull of the noose

You can cast a magic spell
Or pull the sword from the the stone
Until you find the Grail that you've been looking for
You'll always be alone

Where is this Grail I've been searching for?
So many years since you've been gone
On all the roads I have traveled on
Where is this grail I've been searching for?
4. Broken Soul
Standing in the shadow
Behind a wall
Made of fear

Cracking the foundations
Dissolve the glue
With my tears

[Pre-Chorus]
Now I'm standing at the crossroads
And I know which way to go
But I'm not strong enough to get there on my own

[Chorus]
I'm at an end
Losing control
Trying to mend
This Broken Soul
Give me one more chance
For me to show
How much I need you to heal my broken soul

Cannot break cycle
Rat on the wheel spinning clear
Finding such frustrations a
World undone horizons near

[Pre-Chorus]
Now I'm standing at the crossroads
And I know which way to go
But I'm not strong enough to get there on my own

[Chorus]
I'm at an end
Losing control
Trying to mend
This Broken Soul
Give me one more chance
For me to show
How much I need you to heal my broken soul

Now I'm living at the mercy of the hourglass
Threatened by the mysteries of the day
All I have are the memories and the photographs
Regretting things that I forgot to say

Standing in the shadow
Behind a wall
Made of fear

[Pre-Chorus]
Now I'm standing at the crossroads
And I know which way to go
But I'm not strong enough to get there on my own

[Chorus]
I'm at an end
Losing control
Trying to mend
This Broken Soul
Give me one more chance
For me to show
How much I need you to heal my...my broken soul
5. Let the Madness Begin
It's a promise that he made to himself
But the thrill puts his pact on the shelf
Locked in a prison he built over time
Made of bitterness, hate, and his lies

A life on trial a sad refrain
A mans denial of pain sustained
He can't control the deepening hole
He feels true peace with rage unleashed

The devil feeds on my thoughts
Even when I pray
A broken promise that I'll
Never lose it again?
The darkness sucks on my soul
And keeps the sun away
I can't stop it so now
Let the madness begin

So many voices bounce around in his head
Some tell him that he'd be better off dead?
Can't shake the urge when the madness calls
So set the world ablaze and watch the kingdom fall

A marriage failed a time in jail
A future bright turned black as night
He grins with hate all hope is erased
He can't resist the demons kiss

The devil feeds on my thoughts
Even when I pray
A broken promise that I'll
Never lose it again?
The darkness sucks on my soul
And keeps the sun away
I can't stop it so now
Let the madness begin

[Solo]

The devil feeds on my thoughts
Even when I pray
A broken promise that I'll
Never lose it again?
The darkness sucks on my soul
And keeps the sun away
I can't stop it so now
Let the madness begin

The devil feeds on my thoughts
Even when I pray
A broken promise that I'll
Never lose it again?
The darkness sucks on my soul
And keeps the sun away
I can't stop it so now
Let the madness begin

Now let the madness begin
6. Pray for Blood
I don't want to wait for the rest of my life
To find my way out of the cold
There will come a time when the brave must rise
To fight the shadows that come for our souls

An epic battle to decide the fate
A new world conquered an entire race
Storm the war field, my broad sword in hand
Master impaler, my enemy damned

Killing deathblow
Warrior bloodflow
Ritual seed sown
I took your life, and now I eat your soul

Pray for blood to the gods of war
Sacrifice to the blood feast of gore

A fallen hero, a pain unmatched
A butcher's crafting, your head is detached
A life force swallowed, new strength I yield
Raw power attained; your wisdom, my shield

Killing deathblow
Warrior bloodflow
Ritual seed sown
I took your life, and now I eat your soul

Pray for blood to the gods of war
Sacrifice to the blood feast of gore

[guitar solo]

The cry of the fallen my blade will avenge
My spirit will guide me to valkyries' revenge
The ultimate honor: to die by my art
You will live forever when I taste your heart

Killing deathblow
Warrior bloodflow
Ritual seed sown
I took your life, and now I eat your soul

Pray for blood to the gods of war
Sacrifice to the blood feast of gore
Pray for blood to the gods of war
Sacrifice to the blood feast of gore

I don't want to wait for the rest of my life
To find my way out of the cold
There will come a time when the brave must rise
To fight the shadows that come for our souls...
7. New Day's Dawn
When my demons start to call
I need you to save me
And if the heavens were to fall
I'd need you to pray for me
And even in my darkest hour
When my world's gone sour
When I look out into the night
I know you're always there for me

Times are tough
And I've lost it all
Had enough
And I've hit the wall
Stopped and struck
By a semi truck of bad luck

Heart turns hard
And I've lost the dream
Soul's been scarred
And I wanna scream!
Life's been trashed
Like a piece of glass
That's been smashed

And when my demons start to call
I need you to save me
And if the heavens were to fall
I'd need you to pray for me
And even in my darkest hour
When my world's gone sour
When I look out into the night
I know you're always there for me

Torn apart
And I've ripped my wings
Stalled at the start
And I've dropped the ring
Slapped by fate
Passed my expiration date, I'm too late

Left for dead
And I've jumped the shark
Poison fed
And I've pinched the spark
Punched and slugged
Like a pickpockets' tug, I've been mugged
8. God Pounds His Nails
Well I wonder bout the hunger
That I've felt inside
Forced changes causing longing
I gave my will to survive

Don't wait for tomorrow
Make it today
You'll never find a better time to lean on your faith
So drop to your knees
Before it's too late
And reach up to the sky

Hey Hey Hey
Like a thunderbolt from Heaven
Swinging that hammer
You know that God He pounds his nails

One...Two...Three
When that drum beats up in Heaven
Swinging that Hammer
You know that God He pounds his nails

Seven wishes unchained madness
Paid the price for a dream
Fates warning
Forever thinking
God decides sight unseen

Don't wait for tomorrow
Make it today
You'll never find a better time to lean on your faith
So drop to your knees
Before it's too late
And reach up to the sky

Hey Hey Hey
Like a thunderbolt from Heaven
Swinging that hammer
You know that God He pounds his nails

One...Two...Three
When that drum beats up in Heaven
Swinging that Hammer
You know that God He pounds his nails

Then I stop and look and die
And never have to wonder why
I'm screaming but I remember that
God pounds his nails.
9. Watch Me Shine
Like a rat on a sinking ship
It strains to save its skin
Trying hard to crack the whip
My body reeks with sin

On the TV the preacher's preach
About a better world
I had to laugh when I read the speech
And take it for what it's worth

And if you think it's fixed
Then you're just a fool
You can't change the world
When you can't even find the truth

I don't want to live without her
Even though at times I've lost my mind

Hear the sound of the crying kid
Count how many tears
Hear the laugh of the drunken dad
Count how many beers

Into the shools the teachers teach
About the sins of the past
Blaming others for the problems here
They can kiss my ass

And if you think it's fixed
Then you're just a fool
You can't change the world
When you can't even find the truth

I don't want to live without her
Even though at times I've lost my mind
I will never give up on her
Just give me one more chance
And watch me shine
10. Paraskavedekatriaphobia (Friday The 13th)
Suspicious signs
Within your mind
Will make this jinx complete
And now you find
The end of times
When the black cat crossed your feet

You must beware
Death's everywhere
When the dog howls at the moon
The evil eye
You'll surely die
Unless you find your penny soon

Thursday the twelfth
Is bad for my health
Tomorrow is worse
Predicting my curse
What does it all mean
Friday The 13

Five leaf clover
The Good luck is over
The mirror cracks in two
A horseshoe found
Good luck abounds
For the horse, it's not so true

Snuff the candles
But can you handle
If the flame remains aglow
Good fortune shot
And now you've got
Another year to go
11. Revival
Just look around and take a snap-shot
At the shadows distorting it all
The walking coffins with painted faces
The evolution beginning to stall

Watch as the day turns to twilight turning old
Feel my skin start to shiver I'm so cold

Only when we're open to the truth can we see what is real
That there is so much more than this
The more we look the more we find
And all the past we leave behind

Believe in nothing what they see
Never digging to reveal
What lies beneath the shallow surface
Is reserved for those who kneel

Scared by what's in the mirror save my soul
Dead to the blackness around me take me home

Oh Lord we need this Great Revival
To change the hearts of man to ensure our own survival
So stand up and understand the need
To look inside ourselves to know this Great Revival starts with me

What'cha gonna go when you've hit the bottom
and the good ol' days are long forgotten
What'cha gonna do when it all falls down
Come on and join our Great Revival

What'cha gonna do when you've lost your focus
and found yourself all consumed in darkness
What'cha gonna do when no one seems to care
Come and join our Great Revival
12. Wormwood
[I. The Tribulation]

The day of Judgment has arrived
Only the blessed shall survive
The second coming of Jesus Christ
Returning like a thief in the night

A tribulation, seven years
The prophet's right the end is near
The written fall of Babylon
All believers dead and gone

Chosen people ostracized
Take the mark or surely die
To buy or sell, must be affixed
The Antichrist, Six Six Six

Ushering in the End of Days
Destroying those who've lost their way
Only the blessed shall survive
Armageddon has arrived

[chorus]
Wormwood falls from the sky
A soul denied, twice will die
Wormwood falls in the sea
Humanity will cease to be

Wormwood falls form the sky
A soul denied, twice will die
Wormwood falls in the sea
Humanity will cease to be

[II. The Seven Seals]

On through the dead of night
See the four horsemen ride
I saw the lamb open wide
The seven seals are broken

The white horse is given a crown
The conqueror bent on conquest
The red horse is given a sword
Taking peace from the world, slayer of men

The black horse is given a scale
The deliverer bringing famine
The pale horse is given the force
Die by the sword, sickness and plagues

Souls that are in slain
Testimony maintained
The sun a black snake
Devastating earthquake

Heaven is still, raining fire at will
Heaven is still, raining fire at will

[III. The Seven Trumpets]

Seven trumpets
Seven angles
Seven trumpets
Seven angles

A hailstorm of blood
Falling like a flood
A mountain in flames
Plugging in the waves

Locusts arise
To torture, not kill them
Massive attacks
Two hundred million

Booming thunder
The lightning destroyer
The bride did not know her
The whore of Babylon

IV. The seven Thunders
Seal up what the seven thunders know
Trumpet of the seven angels blow

[V. The Seven Bowl Judgments]

The judgments of God
Slaughter all in its path
The angles of God
Pour the bowls of his wrath

The first Vail
Unleashes sores on the children of the beast
The second angle
Pours his bowl on the sea, killing all the living creatures
The third Vail
Unleashes blood on the rivers and springs
The fourth angle
Pours his bowl on the sun, scorching people with the fire
The fifth Vail
Unleashes night on the kingdom of the beast
The sixth angle
Pours his bowl Euphrates runs dry, armies walk across
The seventh Vail
Unleashes hell, every mountain is razed
The mother whore
Holds the cup in her hand, filled with filthy adultery

[chorus]

[VI. The Thousand Years]

I saw heaven open wide
On the white horse Justice rides
Clad in red roves dipped in blood
His name is the Word of God

Beast is captured, burned in fire
Locked away the king of liars
One thousand years is Satan's stay
Begins this resurrection day

Warning sign, a prophecy
Rising from the eternal sea
Down on your knees start to pray
Ray of son to light the way

Will this happen, a story cast
Or a fable from the past
Make your choice this is no game
Will the Book Of Life bear your name?
