Gargoyle Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Nothing Is Sacred (4:28)
Walking aimless through the street like zombies we march on
Into the world of the dead
Blinded by truth sometimes we stray from the path
Have you forgotten the word, forgotten the word

CHORUS:

Nothing is sacred, nothing is sacred anymore
Nothing is sacred no, nothing is sacred anymore

Echoing throughout the land the word is spoken clear
But the meaning is lost
Fooling yourself deceiving the world with your lies
God only knows where it ends
Mastering the miles that lay removing beasts at will
A balance of sin she will forget
Fossil fruits we've raped them all digging deeper still
A finite surplus my god they will forget, forget

CHORUS
2. The Burning (4:00)
Hear me there is an evil among us
We've got to put the devil in his place
Slap him in the face
Can't you see that we must set it free
Or it's likely to destroy us
Build a fire burn the liar take the evil down
Shout the word let every person hear
Only those of evil need to fear

CHORUS:

Children gather 'round the burning fire let it cleanse the soul
Children gather 'round the burning fire let it cleanse your soul

Demons, demons from hell I command thee we've got to free
This woman from her pain let her breathe again
I believe that with one sweet reprieve
We can save her from disaster
What is learned from her bones charred and burned
Who will save her soul

Save me I am afraid of the fire
I never did no one any harm no cause for alarm
If I bleed then I only succeed in proving your suspicion
Sink or swim I'm as guilty as sin what more can I say
Shout the word let every person hear
Only those of evil need to fear

CHORUS

It's the last thing you'll see
It's the last thing you'll see as you die by the flames
3. Aryan Diplomacy (3:09)
Take what we want like a proud bird of prey
We might just take your soul
Castrating jackals that stand in our way
So the seed shall never grow
It's the Aryan way stand with pride wait for the day
When the filth that surrounds us shall no longer stand in our way
Wait for that day
Shed not a tear as the blood hits the ground
From the first kill to the last
Just like the tanks that are crushing the bones
It's a necessary task

CHORUS:

You live a lie and swear by your hand
Don't be afraid to surrender
A soldier shines and always obeys
Your dead will bury you one day

If you think you can hide in the dark
You're a fool and you won't get away
Sympathy at the end of a gun
Is more than you'll ever deserve

CHORUS
4. Final Victory (4:31)
Suddenly without warning they came plundering their foe
Tell the world the giant sleeps no more
Like the wrath of god above the nations fall at will
Who'll be left to count the final score
If the wings of freedom take you soaring through the night
Tell the world that it's over and done
Although the battle's just begun no victor will arise
In the end still nobody has won

As the lights go black just like a plague the panic grows
Witness the calm before the storm
Unsurmountable chaos breaks the people scream in fear
Cowering like mice so true to form
If the wings of freedom take you soaring through the night
Tell the world that it's over and done
Although the battle's just begun no victor will arise
In the end still nobody has won

CHORUS:

The end may be near but there's nothing to fear
The end is no final victory
So now we can see what the future is to be
The end is no final victory

CHORUS
5. Look Homeward (5:25)
Spend a lifetime forging onward and never look behind
A dark fate awaits if you should fall
See the path unwind before you destination clear
If you choose to answer the call
The time has come to leave the past behind
Don't let the future pass you by

Plunging headlong into life when no one sets the pace
Familiar faces in the wake
The time has come to slow this deadly pace
Don't let this moment slip away

CHORUS:

Take the time don't toss aside today because the future's in your hand
The golden path will never fade away if you really understand

Life is short and time is fleeting every second counts
Don't waste a moment just move on
Look around the world you've made a vision half complete
Look homeward you were never gone

When the striving is over the lines from tension still remain
No one's left to conquer proved superior
Can't even see you at the top no

CHORUS
6. Out from the Shadows (4:48)
You've seen me before my friend my face is etched in stone
An image reappearing in your mind
My life has been an open book but still you'll never know
The reason I have come for you this time

CHORUS:

In the burning daylight you'll see the truth is oh so clear
But in the falling twilight you will begin to quake with fear
Out from the shadows it comes for you, there's only a moment to pray
Hiding in darkness I'll wait for you, your soul is the price that you'll pay

So many lifetimes I have known so many tortured souls
Repentance such a petty price to pay
My blood has spilled a million times for no apparent cause
The journey of a lifetime gone astray

CHORUS

Now my friend the time has come to hear the piper's call
Can you figure out which way to turn
With these final words I speak the meaning not so clear
Is my quest in vain or will you burn

CHORUS
7. Dark Mirror Dream (4:05)
Another time is coming forward memories flood your mind
Try to forget all the pain
Feeling lost and undecided torn and so abused
Sign it all away and in time it will come back to you

CHORUS:

Dark mirror dream too many and too few reflects an image in your mind
Dark mirror dream it's a question put to you
The answer will be known just give it time

My sleep is stained and this feeling just won't change
Pain can be so real when you're alone
An iron chain will it ever let me go
Freedom's just a dream I'll never know

CHORUS

It all seems so distant now memories always fade
Sometimes to leave subtle gray
I'll never get to relive that day gone forever now
One lesson past and I know that it won't be my last

CHORUS
8. Blind Faith (4:38)
Of all of us here who'll be the first to understand
We've nothing to fear now
What's done is done you can't deny
That this will never change now you're satisfied

CHORUS:

Blind faith leading us all, blind faith leading us all

Someone must find the reason for this shame
No one cares we're running out of time
You left me here to die in the cold or build a life from the dust
Too many hopes left unfulfilled so spread the ashes of life

What is a man when there's not one to live for
I'm taking now what you couldn't take before
As the world fades away I've only one regret
I had to live to see this altered face

CHORUS

Now the cold is filling my heart
As I meet my own destiny

CHORUS
9. Down to the Ground (5:52)
Take the time to realize the good things in your life
Beware the cut of the knife

Tarnishing your soul with thoughts of sacrilege is wrong
Beware the evil is strong
Can't you feel your heart sinking down to the ground
Every test of faith is another thorn in your crown

Everyone must live with pain that's what it's all about
Beware the coward's way out
The sorrow has led to destruction with the cut of the knife
The splendor of death or the heartache of life
Witness the power and the glory and fall to your knees
Only your faith can set you free

Tarnishing your soul with thoughts of sacrilege is wrong
Beware the evil is strong
Can't you feel your heart sinking down to the ground
Every test of faith is another thorn in your crown

Take of this cup and you'll feel like a new man
Stronger than ever before
Bathed in the blood of the wise and the righteous
Today is the day you're reborn

Time after time it's an uphill climb till your dying day
And you never get a chance to catch your breath
And then you find if only life could pass you by you'd never know
The sorrow has led to destruction with the cut of the knife

The splendor of death or the heartache of life
Witness the power and the glory and fall to your knees
Only your faith can set you free
Witness the power and the glory and fall to your knees
Only your faith can set you free
