The Fate of Angels Lyrics

Submitted by level
1. The Purest Form
Piercing frequencies strike hard the tranquil heart.
The gold of hope, drifting so far apart.
Beyond my reach, ripping so terribly.
Into the skin, the flesh of humanity.
Tear at the wounds, uncover the nakedness.
Bitter and cold, the pain that will never rest.
Within me, watching it as it grows.
Within you, seeing it all unfold...
Tearing at the skin
Leaving nothing to be shown
Look at the emptiness
My hate still grows
Seeing you in a world
Where you'll die slow
Only then it will rest
For hours I looked
Only to endure
The sight of thee,
Countenance of a whore
Who drains and bleeds
The only life that's left,
This life in me.
Here, now you're cold,
Cold and tired.
Farther from the sun,
You're falling
Weakened here, you're lost (forever)
Shattered now,
You look for heaven.
My vengeance grows,
Rising up, it takes its form.
Moving in for the kill...
This hate so pure
Seeing it all so clear
Before unknown, hate in its purest form.
For hours I looked
Only to endure
The sight of thee,
Countenance of a whore
Who drains and bleeds
The only life that's left,
This life in me.
2. The Great Fall
...and then the sky cried "Let it rain",
I cup my hands to drink in vein.
For once grey skies cry "Let it rain",
I'm suffering endlessly...
Drift away on handspun garments,
Fly beneath the sky that crashes down.
Search the land, search the oceans,
There you'll find, you'll find your heaven...
And then the sky cried "Let it rain",
I cup my hands to drink in vein. For once grey skies cry "Let it rain",
I'm suffering endlessly...
Lay low,
What I know, what I think, what I feel it is,
Will pass in time.
Stay low,
To keep the sun from burning you.
Falling,
Back to the ground that gave you life.
Crawling,
To where I've returned from...
3. Spiral Dreams
4. This Burden I Bear
Bring to me your heart divine,
Swept ashore by constant winds.
Swift and harsh, they crash against me,
I plead for closure, it is time.
Leaves silent in their decent,
A frigid branch left bare and weak.
The brutal winter approaches soon,
Leaving behind a tired man...
The sky so dark,
Reeks of your cries.
Tear out my eyes,
Now I'm blind.
Remove my tongue,
Before I taste (the bitter residue)...
Entwined in this web I lay,
It's so dark.
Devastated by your disregard,
I fall...
5. Drawn To Earth
Spoken so softly, were the tones of the tongue.
Now lost in a world In which I'll never hear.
Taken from me, and drawn to the Earth,
A god left bereft, and still mourning for this...
The cacophony of life,
The remains of all who weep.
See the ashes of a child,
Spread amongst the sullen streets...
Left with the sound of nothing to hear,
But the roar of the whale's path,
And the breath of the sky.
Lost in the night, it's always the same,
With thoughts of your life that perished in the Spring...
The cacophony of life,
The remains of all who weep.
See the ashes of a child,
Spread amongst the sullen streets...
In the dark they stand in rain,
Children of a blood red sky.
Their endeavors all have failed,
Fallen on their knees, but why?
The unanswered filled with fear,
Seeking all that failed them now.
Lassitude in all their minds,
Watching all who die, why now?
6. Dawn
7. When The Rains Come
"Anger be now your song, immortal one."
And reign down upon the land singing your dulcet tones.
Shelter, proves no help for the weak.
As they crumble and die at the hands of the one called Savior.
Shattered remains of a life once held so dear.
A child lay torn on the Earth, crying her acid tears.
Ruins...a mighty city in flames,
A rain from above pierces the clouds, and covers the burning remains.
In life, time heals the wounds of battle.
For the rains cleansed the world...purified the land.
Hope is not lost,
Why can't you see?
We snatched away life
From the hands of defeat
I ask why have you defied me?
Peeling away,
The layers of death
Hate is the cold
That you feel in my breath.
And so...I live again
8. Athena
I've seen the other side of pictures,
Just like the ones I used to know
The other side brings forth an omen
Lost in your eyes, this place in time.
Like silk woven on a great machine,
Flowing down your back.
Shimmering orbs of flame,
Burning holes in mine...
Ivory, stunning to me.
Oh, won't you share with me your light?
She comes to me when I sleep,
Her outstretched hands...
They beckon me.
She visits me in my dreams.
Now blinded by your light...
Oh Athena...
9. Shadowburn
I've walked this road before
Thinking it would be clear
A salvation
To rid myself of impurities
This false belief I had
Seemed fine at the time
I know better than to trust my mind
Waiting for you, praying for you
I must move on, must find my way
This place holds the shadow
That I've seen before
In time, like tomorrow
I'd like to know what I could have seen
Slain from above
Saved from below
What do I know?
10. Walk This Bloody Path
Lay here with me,
Ravaged by despair.
Cover me with eloquence,
and splendor that you bear.
The Warrior Poets have wept for me...
Soiled with slaughter,
I have become endowed with grief.
Beneath the ground on which I lay...
Walk this bloody path,
To where I've fallen down,
Over here I lay,
In the dark. I'm cold and trembling.
I feel the warmth has gone.
On deaf ears fell my last call...
Take my bloody hand,
And lie where death abounds.
The hearse has callen me.
In the dark. Will you remember me,
When all the warmth has gone?
11. The Fate Of Angels
Describe your day,
As one in which,
You washed the hurt and pain away.
A cleansing day,
To ride the wave of hope, to lay,
In lakes of tears,
That burn your fears...
The ruined heaven,
You sought forever...
Gone are the clouds I knew before,
Dead are the trees that grew before.
For now what remains, in this lifeless place,
Is the sound of my soul, and it cries for sleep.
Is it granted?
Or am I stranded?
I hope to see the light of day,
I hope this darkness burns...
The ruined heaven,
You sought forever...
