Submitted by level Wait
1. Death By Hanging (5:04)
Well, raise 'em high and string 'em up
We've gotcha, now you're good as dead
From the gallows to your grave
It's gona take your life away

Crime they say, does not pay
And you're the living proof
But not for long, cause you'll be hung
By your neck

Thirteen knots around your neck
Will really give you quite a stretch
From the gallows to your grave
It's gonna take your breath away

Death by hanging
Death from the gallows
Death by hanging around
Death by hanging
Death from the gallows
Death by hanging around

Raise the slime and string 'em up
We've gotcha, now you're good as gone
From the gallows to your grave
It's gona take it all away

The crowd they cheer as you climb the stairs
Finally you're a star
But not for long, cause you'll be hung
By your neck

Death by hanging
Death from the gallows
Death by hanging around
Death by hanging
Death from the gallows
Death by hanging around

Crime they say, does not pay
And you're the living proof
But not for long, cause you'll be hung
By your neck

Death by hanging
Death from the gallows
Death by hanging around
Death by hanging
Death from the gallows
Death by hanging around
2. Goblin's Blade (4:34)
Walking the path of no return
Lurks the evil that lives within
Shattered dreams of many men
Who tried to cross the bridge of sin

I'm the one who lives to tell the tale
Of the mythical demon that once impaled
The murders of many brought fear to the land
This mythical menace, I will slay in the end

The Goblin would sit beneath the rocks
Waiting in the shadows as the bridge was blocked
As the men would try to break the barricade
They would witness the Goblins Blade

It was not a pretty sight to watch them die
But I was young and I feared for my life
Their throats were cut at the flick of his wrist
And as they fell he said with a hiss

"I'm the keeper of the bridge of souls
And underneath is where the bloodriver flows
So never try to cross my path, for if you do
I'll split you in half"

The Goblin sits beneath the rocks
Waiting in the shadows as the bridge was blocked
As the men would try to break the baracade
They would witness the Goblins Blade

Walking the path of no return
Lurks the evil that lives within
Shattered dreams of many men
Who tried to cross the bridge of sin

I'm the one who lives to tell the tale
Of the mystical demon that once impaled
The murders of many brought fear to the land
This mystical menace, I shall slay in the end

The power is great within his sword
And the only way to defeat him
Is to steal his source, leaving him weak
I shall show no remorse
I shall take his last breath, with his own sword
3. Open The Grave (7:22)
Feel the heat from the sweat of the cold
Bodies withered decyed and old
They lay beneath the cold, black earth
The final resting place, destined form birth

Buried alive in a prison below
Left to die in a six foot hole
As he feels his time has run out
He hears someone above, he begins to shout

Please open the grave and let me out
I'm still alive, can you hear me shout
Open the grave and then you will see
For it's not a spirit that you hear, it's me
Set me free, set me free

He begins to hear the sound of a pick
Someone is digging, but time is ticking
Now he begins to drip with sweat
Cause he knows his prayers haven't been answered yet

Buried deep in a prison below
Left to die in a six foot hole
Seeing his life pass before his eyes
Hoping that someone will hear his cries

Open the grave and let me out
I'm still alive, can you hear me shout
Please, open the grave and then you will see
I'm not a spirit, and I can breathe
Cause I'm free, yes I'm free

The churches of the world are crumbling
Feel the fall of tower of cultures
As your flesh is ripped by social vultures

So here I stand after the war
My body is broken and my mind is torn

Colliding with time, past and future
So tell me if I'm in the dead past or ruined future

The churches of the world are crumbling
Feel the fall of tower of cultures
As your flesh is ripped by social vultures

So here I stand after the war
My body is broken and my mind is torn
4. Pray For Death (3:42)
Conquering the ages with their endless plan
Threatening the future of the new world man
Ultra technology in our wake
Who will make the last mistake
Billions ar espent for our defence
To protect our freedom at our expense
For us to exist we must live as one
Divide the wealth to feed everyone

The future is blind in the political eye
Bringing us down with their nuclear guides
It'll be too late when they finally see the light
Filling our heads with economical lies
Refusing to hear the people cry
Leaving no choise but to pray for death

The government builds machines that kill
And they use out money against our will
When will they build a means of peace
And maybe the future can live with ease
And what about the churches and all their wealth
There's an unseen fortune under their belts
Are golden temples a symbol of God's way
This horde of wealth is a sickening display

Organized religion is deaf, dumb and blind
They think they see through God's eyes
It'll be too late when they finally see the light
If the pope would sell his robes of silk
He could provide the hungry milk
Leaving no reason to pray for death

They feed us the future through subliminal blinds
But we know the stories and we know the rhymes
So look in the mirror and see the lines
For it's just a picture seen through their eyes, eyes, eyes
5. Set Me Free (Sweet Cover) (3:46)
Rack, ball and chain
Feel just the same
Hands on the wall
Maybe you're just playing games
Set me free

Hung by a hound,
Ganging around
Is this for real
I don't know when
I'll be found
Set me free

Set me free
Set me free from you

Taken by force
By you of course
Far from my bed
Maybe I'll feel better dead
Set me free

Set me free
Set me free from you

Fire in my brain
Burn me insane
Making your mark
Don't leave me here in the dark
Set me free

Call me a saint
That's what I ain't
Inside my head
I know I'd rather dead
Set me free

Set me free
Set me free from you
6. Breaking The Silence (5:51)
Screaming for sanction with every breath
Break through the silence as you enter your quest
Misguided fortune, lost in your fear
When will you see what is so clear

Will we stand still and watch the blood spill
Until the blood is our own
The ones who deceive, lie that they are true
But where are they when you fall

We're breaking the silence
So hear what I say
Just listen in silence, it's the only way

Clinging transparent, your energy they'll drain
They'll help you down and pick your vein, yes they will
Unstable future, your face in the mirror
When will you face all that you fear

Will we stand still and watch the blood spill
Until the blood is our own
The ones who deceive, lie that they are true
But where are they when you fall

If you break the silence
There's a price to pay
You must take an alliance
It's the only way

Screaming for sanction with every breath
Break through the silence as you enter your quest
Misguided fortune, lost in your fear
When will you see what is so clear

Will we stand still and watch the blood spill
Until the blood is our own
The ones who deceive, lie that they are true
But where are they when you fall

If you break the silence
There's a price to pay
You must take an alliance
It's the only way

If you break the silence
There's a price to pay
You must take an alliance
It's the only way
Break the silence
Break the silence
7. Worlds End (7:05)
Beyond in time the Astron glows
Tune into your inner past
The intervals of light
Between two successive nights
The mind predicts the maze

Cold and dense, but fast as light
Mercury, the messenger stands in flight
Sent by the gods to bring us the news

A methane blast, hard and fast
Speed through time, skating on glass
Time is well forgot

We are the ones of a race soon old
We are the ones who will witness the blow
Whose eyes will burn on whatever they behold
Whose flesh will bleed by the thorns of a rose
Whose lips shall whisper these words to be told
And you will scatter in the Earth�s end

Step by step, we must fight
The war of our world is about to begin
Kill one another over the power of words
Cool and dense, but fast as light
Mercury, the messenger stands in flight
Sent by the gods to bring us the news

We are the race that was left for not
We are the ones that time forgot
In the Universe there is always constant change
Blinded by greed you fought over gold
Ready to take whatever you can hold
And you will pay in the Earth's end

A methane blast, hard and fast
Speed through time, skating on glass
Time is well forgot

Step by step, we must fight
The war of our world is about to begin
Kill one another over the power of words

We are the ones of a race soon old
We are the ones who will witness the blow
Whose eyes will burn on whatever they behold
Whose flesh will bleed by the thorns of a rose
Whose lips shall whisper these words to be told
And you will scatter in the Earth's end
8. Save The Skull (5:22)
Timeless shadow stalking the night
Search for a victim before the new light
Demented by shame, lost in his pain
When will his hunger stop
Carving the flesh from her succulent chest
Through the fog into the mist
His relentless murders are never fast
He always saves the skull for last

Save the skull for last
Cause the life it's lived has passed
Save the skull for last

Hot young flesh, freshly killed
It makes him feel better when
He sees the blood spill
He must be stopped, dead or alive
Or many people won't survive
He preys on whores, he lures them in
This is where the nightmare ends and begins
Torturing them slow, never fast
He always saves the skull for last

Save the skull for last
Cause the life it's live has passed
Save the skull for last
Save the skull for last
Cause the life it's live has passed
Save the skull for last

Polish your sword for vengeance is sweet
And keep this evil off the street
He must be stopped, dead or alive
Or many people won't survive
I'll cut him up into little cubes
And put him an a pot
And make a bloody stew
I'll throw it in the alley
And feed him to the rats
He'll never save a skull at last

Save the skull for last
Cause the life it's live has passed
Save the skull for last
Save the skull for last
Cause the life it's live has passed
Save the skull for last
