Crucible Lyrics

(15)
Submitted by level 이준기
1. Park Manor (1:11)
[instrumental]
2. Crucible (4:27)
The cause of my affliction
Can never be resolved
A case for self infliction
Whose sin can't be dissolved

Lost in a room of mirrors
There's only one way out
But suicide is easy
When all you have is doubt

Idolize the demigods
The weapon of stigmata
Drowning in the grail of blood
The weapon of stigmata

Each day becomes fragmented
It's harder to connect
My world seems so demented
I see nothing to respect

But strength is born from weakness
And this is where I fall
I step up to the enemy
Then rise from where I crawl

Idolize the demigods
The weapon of stigmata
Drowning in the grail of blood
The weapon of stigmata
The weapon of stigmata

Behind my back
In my face
Walking stalking

In my space
Think I'm closed up
But I know, I mark all
Watch where you go

Bide my time
Make you stop
Watch your mouth
Until you drop

Make me sick
I can wait
When you stumble
Seal your fate

Empty threats
Fucked up lies
Take you down
With alibis

Useless strength
Wastes on me
Crush you down
Dead enemy

Idolize the demigods
The weapon of stigmata
Drowning in the grail of blood
The weapon of stigmata

Penance from the rancid icon
Virgin weeping plasma
Idolize the demigods
The weapon of stigmata
Weapon of stigmata
Idolize the demigods
The weapon of stigmata
Weapon of stigmata
The weapon of stigmata

3. One Will (3:32)
I see the gods in the arena
They stand beneath the blinding lights
The roar becomes a deafening silence
In reverence before the fight

One will live tonight
One will die tonight
One will stand and
One will fall

One in victory
One in misery
Only one will take it all

Then all at once begins the rumble
A mass of body hits the floor
Locked in a battle - strength and honor
Blood, sweat and tears becomes the score

One will live tonight
One will die tonight
One will stand and
One will fall

One in victory
One in misery
Only one will take it all
4. Betrayal (3:04)
Will you go to heaven
Will you land in hell
Are the things you're praying for
The things that serve you well?

Did you get satisfaction
Have you paid the price
Can you look me in the eye
Say you found paradise?

Betrayal, you are what you choose
Betrayal, got everything to loose
Betrayal, one day you'll know
Betrayal, you reap what you sow

Sell your soul for mercy
Heed the reapers call
Waiting for that heart attack
Your back's against the wall
Stealing from tomorrow
Is no way to live
But when you've got no future
Then there's nothing left to give

Betrayal, you are what you choose
Betrayal, got everything to loose
Betrayal, one day you'll know
Betrayal, you reap what you sow

So when you get to heaven
When you land in hell
Are the things you're praying for
The things that serve you well?

Betrayal, you are what you choose
Betrayal, got everything to loose
Betrayal, one day you'll know
Betrayal, you reap what you sow
5. Handing Out Bullets (3:16)
Cowards are unholy
Parasites that hide
Detonate the human bomb
Hands are all awash in blood

Carnage from the scriptures
Slaughter of the lamb
Break the neck of the white dove
Run down by the tracks above

Whip the back
Of your messiah
Your peace kills by death

Bow your head
The prayer calls to violence
That history rejects

Waiting wall of murder
Consummating hate
League of perpetuity
Will open wounds of disbelief

Through self immolation
You desecrate the ground
Annihilate the innocents
In crucifixion crashing down

Whip the back
Of your messiah
Your peace kills by death

Bow your head
The prayer calls to violence
That history rejects

Motuhs are spitting venom
Shocked senseless by the grief
Another day of dying
As your terror cry abominates

Mushroom cloud is coming
Hanging by the nails
Gasoline the olive branch
Start digging up more body pits

Whip the back
Of your messiah
Your peace kills by death

Bow your head
The prayer calls to violence
That history rejects
6. Hearts Of Darkness (3:48)
With a friend to share your angry life
Deadly secrets to resolve your strife
Death remaining on each thought you owned
Blackened hate in legacies renowned

Love and death
Lure your prey
Thought by thought
From your hate

Recanted murder in a place of peace
Hide the truth from one that is deceased
Did you believe so little in your life
To kill a friend to satisfy your plight

In my crime
I am living
I can die
Unforgiving

Lost in trials
No repentance
Trapped in time
Serve my sentence

No remorse
Youth got old
Wasted life
Blood ran cold

Point the finger at the only thing you truly loved
On your way to ending life - tonight

Took too much
To the end
In denial
Deceived your friend

See myself
Through your eyes
You are all
I despise

As I bleed
What I gave
Put me now
In my grave
7. Crystal (4:38)
Smell your world when you come
I won't make a victim
I lie awake and I'm forsaken

From all the holes in my time
You saved up for this true lie
The devil bides her time in waiting

And still she comes

Crystallized in paranoia
Lost yourself inside her madness
Beast has glazed your being
With its torture

All the faults in your life
This suffering can't be mine
The curse will grow with what you prey for

And still she comes

She's calling
I'm falling
She makes me mine
Still calling
I'm crawling
She is benign

Smell your world when you came
Now I am a victim
I lie awake - I swim inside you

And still she comes...
8. Heretic (3:49)
The way you look at me
Feel all your hatred building
I won't be what you see
A nation built for killing

The color of the skin
Dividing church's saviors
The wars that you begin
Reflect in your behavior

We live and die
From all this isolating
We live and die
When we stop procreating

Genetic blasphemy
Resisting devastation
Corrupting heresy
To save the population

We live and die
From all this isolating
We live and die
When we stop procreating

We live and die
To generate existence
We live and die
A life line of persistence

We live and die
And all we feel is sadness
We give and try
Mankind embraces madness

We live and die
And all we feel is sadness
We give and try
Mankind embraces madness
9. Golgotha (4:21)
Golgotha, rise up from your tomb
Devil's had a taste of holy water
Lost children need your guiding hand
Take them through the fire of the promised land

Now we've come together
We're all waiting for a sign
If it takes forever
We believe in the divine

Grand Canyon, source of all our dreams
Protected from a billion years of evil
Golden fire - thunder all around
Covenants will cover up you sinners

Now we've come together
We're all waiting for a sign
If it takes forever
We believe in the divine

Overcoming tyranny to desecrate the entity - satanical
Laying waste this sick disease
That crippled, maimed, feel to our knees - like Jericho

Pile of skulls crunched under foot
Torched remains are crying out - satanical
Rising up to purge and scourge the killing of our paradise - like Jericho

Salvation...

Now we've come together
We're all waiting for a sign
If it takes forever
We believe in the divine
10. Wrath Of God (3:12)
White swords of blinding razor light
Blast round the earth
Validating with immortal strength
Courage of the brave

From the aftermath of dust and flames
Resilience soars
Upon the searing light's reflected blade
That guards and saves

The dark sky
The victims
The air is full of vengeance

From now on
No mercy
The wrath of God
Reins on you

These monuments of power and steel
Carved in each soul
Stand forever indestructible
For all mankind

The face of mighty nations liberty
In stoic resolve
For all the hated evil that men can do
Will be avenged

The dark sky
The victims
The air is full of vengeance

From now on
No mercy
The wrath of God
Reins on you

It's over
You're wasted
Now you're incinerated

In hell
I'll meet you
And once again
Defeat you

And though the light is dimmed to black someday
Inside it burns
A raging fire to virtues endless war
And freedom's cause

The dark sky
The victims
The air is full of vengeance

From now on
No mercy
The wrath of God
Reins on you

It's over
You're wasted
Now you're incinerated

In hell
I'll meet you
And once again
Defeat you
11. Weaving Sorrow (3:28)
You never know me
Cause I won't let you in
Not all I am
Is on the surface

Always concealing what
Is lying within
Ain't fellin' guilt
When there's no purpose

It's too late
To turn around
No tomorrow

Obvious truths are for
The dumb and the weak
Go on pretending in your fake world

Bring your insanity but don't ever speak
Your fucking life is like a circus

It's too late
To turn around
No tomorrow

It's your fate today
You're weaving sorrow
12. Sun (3:48)
I, want to steer for the sun
For the day has begun
It's saying, it's saying

My, soul just wanted to freeze
To collapse and to seize
From the waiting

You, know it matters to me
That I have to rage free
I was longing

All that I feel is my soul
I will never let go
What I crave for

All of the things that you need
Are the things that you bleed
Here 'em calling?

And when the world becomes too much for me
That's when I know that I can't stay
I'm searching for my own serenity
I know I have to get away

I, want to steer for the sun
For the day has begun
Here it calling?

It's calling...
13. Trail Of Tears (4:27)
Such desperation
Left you in shame
This bitter harvest
Bearing all the blame

Man will never end your suffering
Stealing all your years
God is with you but won't save you
From your Trail of Tears

From this oblivion
Seek dignity
Just human cargo
Crying to be free

Man will never end your suffering
Stealing all your years
God is with you but won't save you

Change it
Gonna change it - change it

Greed of man has pushed you over
Feeding on the fears
Poverty will always prosper
On your Trail of Tears

Man will never end your suffering
Stealing all your years
God is with you but won't save you
From your Trail of Tears
14. She (bonus track) (4:01)
She is the one who fills my soul
With grace and dignity so rare
A jewel that shines upon her child
And lifts me to a higher place - a higher place

She sang to me before I breathed
Alive inside she gave me life

I felt her heartbeat as if touching mine
The rhythm stays and never leaves
She smiles and warms the coldest of the days
Her soft caress brings peace and hope

And when I'm gone she's always there
To carry me through troubled times
She held me to her simple truth
That all I need is what she gives

In dreamland where the child still lives
Forever pure in arms of love

In dreamland where the child still lives
Forever pure in arms of love

This virtue leaves tranquility
As ever radiant it's always light
Her laughter drifts across a thousand miles
And takes me back to innocence
15. Fugitive (bonus track) (4:01)
A desert moon is rising
Down that road's a distant place
A home where I have run from
A town where I can't show my face
I put myself before you
I should have known where that would lead
You wanted to possess me
And make me into what you need

Ride on fugitive
Running low
Lone life as a renegade
Riding on

I won't become that empty
I take elusive hard to find
So you can't wait forever
I'll never be the wanting kind
I found myself in solace
I am the friend you never had
You vowed to be a stranger
As I keep walking on my back

Ride on fugitive
Running low
Lone life as a renegade
Riding on

And though my best is left intact
It's so much harder coming back

Ride on fugitive
Running low
Long life as a renegade
Riding on
And on

Ride on fugitive
Running low
Long life as a renegade
Riding on



16. In The Morning

[Japanese bonus]

I'll tell you something
A few more hours
I'll turn away and won't be found
All your dreaming
Your wish is falling
I'm going away to someplace
I'm searching, need some time
To, see what
I can find

I know what I want
And I can see it
I've been along this road before
I can't remember
I need an answer
And yesterday is over
Now, I'm
Chasing all the way the time
Ties, wounded memories
That tell what I feel
I lie awake and dreaming
Was I, calling out
I'm falling, in my dying garden
Take what you feel, when you're lonely.

In the morning, when your waking
I will always be with you
