The Evolution of Chaos Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Wait
1. Intro (1:21)
Instrumental
2. Dying Season (5:41)
Hey, It's Dying Season
Bodies Dropping in an endless grave
Promise, Promise Broken
Lives are lost, dissolved in vain
War, war and treason
Power minds set the stage
Loss, loss of reason
Disappearing in an endless rage

Fist full of sand, Mouth full of disdain
Stepping Stones melt into flames
Ancient methods hostorically stained
Soldiers marching onward into dust

Cradle the crying, extol the dying
Blood shed like paint to the wall
Sanity scarring, a prayer underlying
A season, A Lifetime to fall
Crack in the sky, black is the night
A towering shadow divides
Piercing creation, sever a nation
Compose a season to die

Hey, crying season
Bombs are blasting with a deadly force
Tears, Tears are falling
A river stained must change its course
Lost, lost forever
Sacrifice is fate's reward
Time everlasting
Only memories and timeless scars

Fist full of sand, Mouth full of disdain
Stepping Stones melt into flames
Ancient methods hostorically stained
Soldiers marching onward into dust

Cradle the crying, extol the dying
Blood shed like paint to the wall
Sanity scarring, a prayer underlying
A season, A Lifetime to fall
Crack in the sky, black is the night
A towering shadow divides
Piercing creation, sever a nation
Compose a season to die

Wars result, is it really worth the cost?
So much pain, the suffering never ends
War & fate, is where the bullets fly
Dust to dust, when death and life collide

Fist full of sand, Mouth full of disdain
Stepping Stones melt into flames
Ancient methods hostorically stained
Soldiers marching onward into dust

Cradle the crying, extol the dying
Blood shed like paint to the wall
Sanity scarring, a prayer underlying
A season, A Lifetime to fall
Crack in the sky, black is the night
A towering shadow divides
Piercing creation, sever a nation
Compose a season to die
3. Control By Chaos (7:09)
We are controlled by chaos in a world left for dead
The masses have been betrayed
Corrupt the innocent and rape the poor
Replace the preordained
I've seen the good and the bad and the ugly man
And his faces are all the same

But no one knows what's in his soul
And he has to gain

As far as the mind can see
Humanity has gone astray
Balance on a razorblade
Lost among the crowd
Sands of time will wash away
Insanity is calling me

Eternal pages of history are set ablaze
The stench it fills the sky
Destroy the evidence, erase the past
And let the memory die
I've seen the cold dark shell of a man
His legacy etched in time
Waht remais unchained is the ice in his veins
And the morals he left behind

As far as the mind can see
Humanity has gone astray
Balance on a razorblade
Lost among the crowd
Sands of time will wash away
Insanity is calling me

Even the blind can see
Can't you see
Eternal heresy
This hypocrisy
Condemned to misery
There's no sympathy
Condemned to life

A life that's worth living his full of sacrifice
If death is the beginning
Then its well worth the price

As far as the mind can see
Humanity has gone astray
Balance on a razorblade
Lost among the crowd
Sands of time will wash away
Insanity is calling me

Even the blind can see
Can't you see
Eternal heresy
This hypocrisy
Condemned to misery
There's no sympathy
Condemned to life

A life that's worth living his full of sacrifice
If death is the beginning
Then its well worth the price
4. No Stone Unturned (11:10)
I'm looking for reason, I'm watching the sings
This head on collision is a race against time
Is this an illusion, It seems so unreal
This manifestation is drawing me near

Something to grab a hold of
Capture a glimpse from the mind's eye
Releasing all that I contain
And all I perceive to be

Feel the pressure building
Got to take this journey on my own
I have to seize the moment
Leave no stone unturned until I'm done

Just like a vapor, moments flash by
Way beyond measure, like the infinite sky
Realization, a token of faith
A constant reminder of my ultimate grave

With nothing to hold on to
Cherish each breath until you die
The sands of time have been measured line by line
A calculation designed for the feast

Feel the pressure building
Got to take this journey on my own
I have to seize the moment
Leave no stone unturned until I'm done

Until I'm gone
Until I'm gone
Until I'm gone
Leave no stone unturned
Dead and gone

I feel the pressure building
I've got to take control
I have to seize this moment
Leave no stone unturned
The past reveals the future
Can we embrace our fate?
This imprint has no boundary
Leave no stone unturned

Leave no stone unturned
Until I'm done
Leave no stone unturned

Leave no stone unturned
Until I'm done
Leave no stone unturned

Leave no stone unturned
'til I'm dead and gone
5. Arrows of Agony (6:40)
Black as the night, furious fight
Arrows are piercing the sky
Sharps as the blade, the cut has been made
Agony coming my way

Pre-Chorus:
Demon eyes are watching me
Preying on my pain and misery
Spreading hate, they plant the seeds
Deception is their only way to feed

Chorus:
Arrow of agony falling
Pierces my flesh 'til I bleed
This is the enemy haunting me
With arrows of agony

Chilled to the bone, drifting alone
This nightmare is haunting my soul
Peace I must find to ease my mind
Something to regain control

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

Lost, lost inside my pain,
Time, to wash away the stain
Scars, still the scars remain
Agony is haunting me, draining the last drop of my sanity
Lost, lost inside my pain,
Time, to wash away the stain
Scars, still the scars remain
Arrows are falling as agony as agony pierces my soul

[Solo: Terry Lauderdale]
[Solo: Kragen]

Black as the night, furious fight
Arrows are piercing the sky
Sharp as the blade, the cut has been made
Agony coming my way

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]
6. Fade Away (5:45)
Twisting on a fine line
Shifting up the incline
Coasting down along this narrow road
Creeping up my blind side
Sidetrack to the dark side
Try to get my spirit to transcend

I've suffered inside the grey and the black
I've walked through goals to get where i'm at
I've saved a lifetime in a jar of miry clay
Shaping my existence to never fade away

Fade away
I will never
Never fade away

Drifting on an ocean
Live without devotion
Hollow is the man without a soul
Blinded by ambition
Short sighted in his vision
Redepmtion's not a place that he calls home

I've suffered inside the grey and the black
I've walked through goals to get where i'm at
I've saved a lifetime in a jar of miry clay
Shaping my existence to never fade away

Fade away
I will never
Never fade away

Twisting on a fine line
Shifting up the incline
Coasting down along this narrow road
Creeping up my blind side
Sidetrack to the dark side
Try to get my spirit to transcend

Draining out the poison
Infection's now in motion
Got to find the source before it spreads
Facing my destruction
Reaching out for something
To free the embrace of this quicksand

I've suffered inside the grey and the black
I've walked through goals to get where i'm at
I've saved a lifetime in a jar of miry clay
Shaping my existence to never fade away

Fade away
I will never
Never fade away
7. A Hero's Welcome (6:52)
There's a time for every season
With a cure comes new disease
Bloodshed and suppression, pain and suffering
There's a necessary evil
And the brave will heed the call
The bugler calls the line as the generals keep the score

In this world that we live in
There is war and tyranny
Chaos and confusion, divided: Who are we?
There is peace as well as freedom
But they both come with a price
Will we ever understand what it means to sacrifice?

They are not in it for the treasure
And not there for the fame
Their aim is for the glory
And the battle is the game
They proudly wear their badge of courage
A living tribute to the clash
Some of them come seeking vengeance
Some fight for the flag, for their God and the land

Victory fools us into thinking
About what we lost and what we've won
When death was upon us
Did we do the things that had to be done?

They travel by land, by air or by sea
Where ever the fight may be
Willingly lay down their lives to preserve
The land of the brave and the free
The home of the brave and the land of the free
The home of the soldiers who fought to keep us free

[Spoken dedication: Adam Harrington]

This song is dedicated to the fallen, wounded and scarred
Their truth is neverending and sacrifice always hard
We honor and pay tribute to all who have served their country well
May you all find peace apart from this living hell

[Solo: Kragen]
[Solo: Lee]
[Trade-Off Solo: Kragen, Lee, Kragen, Lee]
8. Undone (6:42)
This feeling that inside me burns
Reveals its face to me in turn
To sow the seeds of self destruction
Once hidden, now concealed no more
Its power greater than before
Led down the path to where renewed temptation lies

Chorus:
Internalize
These wicked cries
Is fate deciding?
What's become of me?
Creation's son
Thy will be done
There's no defying
I'll be undone

Relent and give in to its needs
Incessant chaos which it feeds
Digs my own grave without intention
And now the hole is six feet deep
Return to reason far too steep
Walk further down the road to where salvation dies

[Chorus]

[Solo: Kragen]
[Solo: Lee]

Relent and give in to extreme
Incessant chaos draining me
To sow the seeds of deconstruction
Once hidden now the path is clear
Its power greater than my fear
Led down the path to where the flames of cremation rise

[Chorus]
9. Bloodkult (4:31)
Endless cycle, in hungry packs they feed
Survival in turmoil is the way of the streets
There is no honor among thieves, no concern or remorse
Legions upon legions march in a centrifugal force

Chorus:
Bloodkult
Senseless blood will spill
Kill first
The code is kill or be killed

Hopeless denial, desensitized to death
Nothing more than a passing glance to aggravate your arrogance
Deadly weapon in your hand, confidence in the steel
Trigger is your only friend, the bullet's fate is revealed

Corruption's running fast and deep, and there is no cure
Contamination infects the rich and the poor
Humanity is lost, their mind are filled with dread
Demons of wrath condemned to eternal flames

[Chorus]

Prisons and graveyards are filled with this plague
This vicious cycle, is too far gone to be saved
Nightmares, cold stares, better run for your life
Gun shots, sirens wailing, cuts through like a knife

[Solo: Kragen]

Endless cycle, in hungry packs they feed
Survival in turmoil is the way of the streets
There is no honor among thieves, no concern or remorse
Legions upon legions march in a centrifugal force

Chorus:
Bloodkult
Senseless blood will spill
Kill first
The code is kill or be killed
Blood Bath
Drenched in the crimson reign
Bloodkult
Disciples of death in vain

[Solo: Kragen]
10. Red Tears of Disgrace (5:52)
Can you hear the warning?
What's been done and what's been said?
People always talking
But no one's listening to the dead
I'm beside myself in disgust
Watching the world turn to dust

I heard someone screaming
Where will we be once all is lost?
And who's gonna count the cost?
Who's gonna count the loss?

I see the madness in their eyes, in their eyes
Their empty words are filled with promises
But they're lies
Siphoning everything draining blood from the earth
A day of reckoning and suffering
Will cover what's left of this world

Temperatures rising
A new end is dawning
The sky is crying red tears of disgrace

When the shadows fall
There'll be peace no more
And nothing left worth fighting for
Days filled with dread
Rivers flowing red
When we bite the hand we choke on regret
'til there's nothing left

I hear the sadness in their cries, in their cries
Spilled tears through the years have all run dry, bone dry
Wanna start a revolution not a war
Wanna find a resolution before we melt to the core

Temperatures rising
A new end is dawning
The sky is crying red tears of disgrace

When the shadows fall
There'll be peace no more
And nothing left worth fighting for
Days filled with dread
Rivers flowing red
When we bite the hand we choke on regret
'til there's nothing left
Stormclouds over head
Raining tears of red

[Solo: Kragen]
[Solo: Lee]

Did you heed the warning?
Because time is coming to an end
There's too much talking
But not enough being said
11. Silent Nothingness (6:51)
Darkness has consumed your soul
Now you curse the sky
Agony and solitude like worms feed on your pride
Innocence has been erased
As shadows stain the sun
Now it's time to pay the price for all that you have done

Chorus:
Silent cry
Hear the voices whisper, "Do it!"
Shattered life
Fading into silent nothingness

Phantom of the universe
Devouring mankind
Infection to humanity poisoning the blind
Centuries have come and gone
Nothing seems to change
Evil is as evil does, the sin remains the same

[Chorus]

[Solo: Kragen]

Never show fear
Use your second sight
The wolves are always near
Lurking in the night

Never show fear
Use your second sight
The wolves are always near
