Baptizm of Fire Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Hard Core (4:39)
As I lie awake in the morning
Just killing time
I can feel the pain and the torment
Building up inside my mind
Have to get it under the counter
Stop myself from going blind
An excess is what I'm after
Nothing less will satisfy
So I walk the streets
And I search beneath
The cloak of decency that hides
All that I need
On which I feed
Better give me
Hard Core
And so the urge returns again
Hard Core
Only thing to ease the pain
Lipsmacking magazine when you're younger
Hidden in my desk at school
Big appetite increases the hunger
Now I need it more and more
Gimme little something to take until daybreak
Or I will go insane
It's building in me, need relief
You better give me
Hard Core
Speak to me of things I like
Hard Core
Nothing less will satisfy
Oh they lie to me
So it's time to be on my way
Speak of love but say
We are way ahead of this place
So so - so frustrated
Never naked - never betrayed
So so - so frustrated
Never naked - never betrayed
Take it to the limit
I admit it you know
Yes I couldn't give a damn
Oh is it any wonder
That I hunger
Just can't give me
Hard core
Seeping back into my brain
Hard core
The only thing to ease my pain
Hard core
Get it while you can
Experience it every day
Hard core
You want it bad you better pay
Fax phone line just wanna flick through
Anytime cataloguing while I kinda change
I'm gonna order mine this time and
I'm gonna watch you viewing behind a mirror
Looking I'm out there ... do it
Hard core
Feel the need to return again
Hard core
Nothing less will ease the pain
Hard core
Hard core
2. Paint It Black (The Rolling Stones cover) (2:53)
I see a red door
And I want to paint it black
No colours anymore
I want them to turn black
I see a line of cars
And they are painted black
They pass me by with one
Who's never coming back
I look inside myself
And see my heart is black
I see a red door
And I have to have it black
Maybe I'll fade away
And not have to face the fact
That it's not easy
When your whole world's turning black
Paint it black
My world's black
If we look hard enough
Into the setting sun
These things will last with me
Before the morning comes
I see them walking by
All dressed up in their clothes
I have to turn away
Until my blackness goes
Paint it black
My world's black
Paint it black
It's all black
3. Enter The Storm (5:56)
Enter the storm
You probably won't survive
But if you do
You'll be much stronger cos you tried
The mighty fall
A world gone mad beneath it all
Nothing to loose
Step through and watch all hell break loose
Rip away the rotten wood
You've been reborn
End the lies and face the truth
The blackness comes
The risk no greater than the gain
But if you stay
Your soul evaporates away
Cyclonic winds
Will blow away the sins you gained
A tidal wave
Can take you where you've never been
Clear the haze inside your brain
You've been reborn
End it all and start again
Gonna lie in wait
For a hurricane
And for sure when I'm
Inside I'll shed my skin
Don't assume
You are doomed
In the stratosphere
Only way to escape
And get out of here
If you should see the devil there
Wondering where I've gone
Tell him I stepped into the storm
Tell him I've been reborn
If you should see the devil there
Wondering where I've gone
Tell him I stepped into the storm
Tell him I've been reborn
Enter the storm
You probably won't survive
But if you do
You'll be much stronger cos you tried
As your life disintegrates
You've been reborn
When confusion blows your brain
Enter the storm
End the lies and end the pain
You've been reborn
End it all and start again
If you should see the devil there
Wondering where I've gone
Tell him I stepped into the storm
Tell him I've been reborn
4. Fuel Me Up (3:02)
Don't pass me by
Without a drop
Just step across
And fill my cup
Gimme more
It's not enough
Rejuvenate me
Fuel me up
Running drier
Every day
Low on gas
High on octane
See the needle
Running hot
Once you start
It's hard to stop
Galvanise me
To the spot
Immunise me with
Everything you've got
Don't pass me by
And never stop
Step across and
Fill my cup
Gimme more
It's not enough
Rejuvenate me
Fuel me up
Are you big enough
To take it
Cos now you'll pay
Pick me up if
I fall I just need
Some more fuel
Don't you understand
My need creates demand
Running drier
Every day
Low on gas
High on octane
See the needle
Running hot
Once you start
It's hard to stop
Galvanise me
To the spot
Better give me
Everything you've got
Don't pass me by
Without a drop
Just step across
And fill my cup
Gimme more
It's not enough
Rejuvenate me
Fuel me up
Don't preach to me
I wont O.D.
You talk too much
Shut the fuck up
And fuel me up
I never stop
I wouldn't last
I'd never rock
5. Extinct (5:33)
I am alive
Not on the brink
But people think
I am extinct
Don't write me off
Or even think
I don't exist
I'm not extinct
I stand alone in many ways
Evolving from a different race
I have a name I have a face
And I'm still breathing
Endangered species are it's said
A little rare - I'm not dead yet
Don't strike me off your list just yet
Cos I'm still breeding
Gone but not for good and you bet
I'll resurrect again
I am alive
Not on the brink
But people think
I am extinct
Don't write me off
Or even think
I don't exist
I'm not extinct
One of a kind but I am not
Just a statistic in your book
There may be just a few of us
But I'm still living
Invisible to many eyes
It may then come as some surprise
Re-energised I will arise
Hey! I'm not finished
Gone but not for good and you bet
I'll resurrect again
I am alive
Not on the brink
But people think
I am extinct
Don't write me off
Or even think
I don't exist
I'm not extinct
I won't fade away
I'm staying
I refuse to be endangered
I'll protect my reputation
That of living not forgetting
I am indestructible
I'm made like you of flesh and blood
I'm not a fossil etched in stone
I am alive I'm not alone
Prehistoric I never was
I'm made like you of flesh and blood
Unlike the dinosaur I'm not
About to perish
I walk this earth
Alongside God
I asked "Man am I done?"
He looked at me
He said "Live on
You won't get damaged"
I am alive
Not on the brink
But people think
I am extinct
Don't write me off
Or even think
I don't exist
I'm not extinct
I am alive
Not on the brink
But people think
I am extinct
Don't write me off
Or even think
I don't exist
I'm not extinct
I am alive
Not on the brink
But people think
I am extinct
Don't write me off
Or even think
I don't exist
I'm not extinct
6. Baptizm Of Fire (5:16)
So you've come of age
And so you want to meet God
Sure you can
He's right here next to me
7. The Healer (4:55)
It depends on your point of view
I'm a healer
I can heal you
If you're skeptical no can do
If you're a believer
I can heal you
Run out of remedies as others do
Then come to me
I will heal you
I'll take your pain away
Then give to you
A new beginning
If you want me to
Stand in line
Tell me what's wrong
I'll give you faith
And I'll make you strong
Come here close to me
Feel my energy
Put your trust in me
I can heal you
Look at me
And you'll begin to recognise reality
Sickness lives only in your mind
Look at me
Give yourself completely
Look at me
Trust in me
Look at me
I can heal you
"Save me"
I can hear you say
Heal me
Take my pain away
Stand in line
Tell me what's wrong
Give me strength
And I'll turn the heat on
Come here close to me
And feel my energy
Put your trust in me
I can heal
Come up close to me
Feel my energy
Put your trust in me
I can heal you
Come up close to me
Feel the power in me
Believe me - I'll heal you
Come up close to me
Change your destiny
Trust me - I'll heal you
8. Cruise Control (4:08)
Sinking
I'm sinking deeper every day
I don't care
I don't care
I'm outta here
Seems to me it's time to taste
Some different air
And get outta here
Caughtup in the routines
Really nothing much to loose
So risk it all and
Just cut loose
Put your life in cruise control
Set your course and let it go
And you
Might find a better way
Tomorrows looking pretty grey
Say a prayer
Cos I've been there
About as welcome as acid rain
So do you dare
Get outta there
Never take a look back
Never say that it's too late
Pull the plug
On yesterday
Put yourself in cruise control
Set your course and let it go
And you
Might just find a better way
Never take a look back
Never say that it's too late
Step on the gas
Accelerate
Choking
Set your course and let it go
Put your life in cruise control
Set your course and let it go
9. Kill Or Be Killed (3:21)
The pacifist won't last
His view means nothing
Take off your safety catch
Earn your blood money
Shoot first don't hesitate
If they lie, you lose, too late
No monument to grace
You as you leave this place
No-don't-be-fooled by
All-those-codes-you've lived by
The mercenary will act
The suckers stand and take it
Initiate attack
Or one time you'll never make it
Always assume the worst
You fight or bite the dirt
Who needs a good excuse
Just stick it where it hurts
Dog-eat dog
Don't-forget it
Or-you'll live-to-regret it
Kill or be killed
Live or die
Kill or be killed
Don't think twice
I ride the wall of death
I've never fallen yet
No need to risk my neck
Just second guess
With every step
So-don't-be fooled by
All-those-codes-you've lived by
Kill or be killed
Live or die
Kill or be killed
Don't think twice
Kill or be killed
Live or die
Kill or be killed
Take my advice
10. Voodoo Brother (5:36)
You can hear the thunder in the sky
I can see the fire in your eyes
Don't you even think that you can hide
You're the same flesh and blood as I
Damn the very day that we were born
In the centre of the electric storms
We will never see the light of sun
Cursed forever by the hand of God
Fear is the only friend of mine
Excuse me while I step out of the light
We will only see the dead of night
I'm a voodoo brother
You're the next in line
Got a voodoo mother
Just the same as mine
Gonna live forever
But your soul is lost like mine
On the day we die
Voodoo brother
Voodoo mother-father
Damn the very day that we were born
In the centre of the electric storms
Fear is the only friend of mine
Excuse me while I step out of the light
We will only see the dead of night
I'm a voodoo brother
You're the next in line
Got a voodoo mother
Just the same as mine
Gonna live forever
But your soul is lost like mine
On the day we die
Stepped into volcanic rage
Spoke to voices from another age
Walked across atomic plains
Never to return this way again
I'm a voodoo brother
You're the next in line
Got a voodoo mother
Just the same as mine
Gonna live forever
But your soul is lost like mine
On the day we die
I'm a voodoo brother
Got a voodoo mother
I'm a voodoo brother
You're the next in line
Got a voodoo mother
Just the same as mine
I'm a voodoo brother
Got a voodoo mother
11. Left For Dead (3:45)
You can live your life of ease
If you obey the hierarchy
I never could see, I never knew why
I shouldn't stand and speak my mind
You keep your mouth shut and your ok
You get to live through one more day
But I had to say this
And I had to say that
And they stuck a knife right in my back
Closed the lid to bury me
But while there's still
A breath of life in me
Left me for dead
But there's no way that I
Will ever give in
I will survive
Traitors prosper, rebels die
And then they say
He was no friend of mine
Oh I never say no when I want to say yes
I never go along and vote for the obvious
Just because of my
Point of view
My expiry date's long overdue
Oh you never can tell
What's going on in their minds
They write your death warrant
But return your smile
While there's still a breath in me
I will not lie down
They won't get me
Left me for dead
There's no way that I
Will ever give in
I will survive
I will survive
While there's still a breath in me
I won't lie down
They won't get me
Left me for dead
There's no way that I
Will ever give in
I will survive
While there's still a breath in me
I won't lie down
They won't get me
