Terror and Submission Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Wait
1. Evil's Rising (4:14)
Dawning sky a day so dreary
Seeing faithful weak and weary
Wanting so much more than is had
To give up anything in trade

Temptation flirts about you
Reach out the gold ring could be yours
Leading to where no one can save you
The lust of excess brings you end

[Chorus]

Unearthly voices, choirs of the dead
Calling for mercy, darkness rears its head
Evil is rising, mortality condemned
Onward and onward to the living end

The choice is ours what will we do
No one will know just what to do
Will the infernal fires of hell
Entombed into the need to be
Or will merciless light of truth shine through (or through you)

[Chorus]

[Solo: Kurt]

Venomous conquest darkens the world
Trails of lifeless carnage left behind

And in the end, you pay the price with your soul

[Chorus]
2. Mortal Fear (4:10)
A seeker of the fortune
Heir to the throne
From the horn of plenty
I taste life alone
Memories soon disappear
Through the haze becomes the twilight
An omen for the future
The destination lies in sight

Even gods in their infinity
The immortals fall away
Sanctuaries, uncertainty
Masterpieces turn to grey
In twilight I witness higher fall
Leaving from where they once belonged

Sands of time forgotten so quick
Ages pass as none regret
On their knees I see supreme
Fade into their mortal place
The ending of some passing dream
Genocide or higher race

Even gods in their infinity
The immortals fall away
Sanctuaries, uncertainty
Masterpieces turn to grey
The mighty must now scrape and crawl
To keep from losing what was owned

Evolution, mercy non betray
The gift of life arrives with death
Creation let to sentence lives
Declared exile, ancients survive
Escape to heavens halls to wait
Poised to loose their touch of hate

[Solo: Mike, Kurt, Mike, Kurt, Mike, Kurt]

Sands of time forgotten so quick
Ages pass as none regret
On their knees I see supreme
Fade into their mortal place
The ending of some passing dream
Genocide or higher race

Even gods in their infinity
The immortals fall away
Sanctuaries, uncertainty
Masterpieces turn to grey
In twilight I witness higher fall
Leaving from where they once belonged
The mighty must now scrape and crawl
To keep from losing what was owned
3. Distant Calling (4:28)
Almost the season, a time of prophecy for those who know
Almost the reason, why the voices of the dead come known
A gnawing in torment divided by the polarizing line
Prey to the masses, hunted in numbers, tortured, death divine

Estranged to nocturnal light
In search for what is known but lost by the time
Desperately clawing, deceived as a puppet for a price
Servant of the master, a watcher of the world until you die

And when you see the light of lights
Out of the corner of your eye
There and then you will be falling
For you must answer to your calling

[Solo: Kurt]

Revolving on a never ending journey
A glimpse into the gateways of eternity
Led to the edge, then pushed to falling
For you must answer to your calling
4. Alpha Omega - The Bringer of Balance (5:52)
Hidden in the magic darkness
Befriended by the night
Lies the war torn ravaged victim
Treason complete a new order arrives
Pain the trouble drone infests
Ever-lasting night befalls revolt
Loot the storehouse of the lamb
The lion will be

[Chorus]

Damned to hell compulsion of the thief
Driven by greed, tempered by force
Sweet evil tendencies, the easy way out
Fallen soldiers bleeding their sins

Fearing death the cowards tremble
All so afraid to fight
Laying down their earthly treasures
Trading possessions for the light
Fighting back without fighting
The blood on them it flows from us
The slaughtering of the lamb
Insures the lion to be

[Chorus]

Rising through the mist around me
Shackled to my vice
The stench of my own sins surround me
Deep inside I need to live
Feed the fires for now but remember all

[Solo: Kurt, Mike, Kurt, Mike]

Deceived by the whore to evil
Voices in my mind revolt
Telling me trust in nothing
Questions begin the answer
Believe in nothing the deceptions sure
Revealing that which has always been
Programmed but not forsaken
Listen not to the charlatan

Question all without regard
An empty ringing breaks the silence
A voice upon the astral wind
Tears upon the trusting face
Turn away while you still can
From the gaze of your temptation
Rebellion is upon our hands
Sacred breeding desecration

The deception's complete
5. Blood of the Saints (3:48)
A frightening scream pierces the night
A deliverance of an oppressive plight
Terror engulfs satanic life
A suffering of eternal strife

Attack is before you, pray a light might guide you
From mortal fear in your life
A stand to fight, no more wrong or right
The accuser will be judged by sanctity

Stricken by the curse of heavenly sin
Legions behold the final day
Allegiance to the end, a blood feast at the hands
That wash themselves of their foretold decay

Laid down to die, martyrs, saints, all will cry
"Save us from this eternal stay"
A call to arms by high command
None will try to make a stand
To battle back the cold caress
Of death possessed by wickedness

Embodied spirits let through the gate
No hope for life scarred by death and hate
No longer are the dogs held bay

[Solo: Kurt]

A frightening scream pierces the night
A deliverance of an oppressive plight
Terror engulfs satanic life
A suffering of eternal strife

Attack is before you, pray a light might guide you
From mortal fear in your life
A stand to fight, no more wrong or right
The accuser will be judged by sanctity

The blood spilled in vain for the sake of those profane
Deceit, a cursed blinded lies eclipsed by wrath before our eyes
Disease, famine plagues distress, an empty hole awaits the rest
Astral guide in mercy comes
6. Black Plague (4:16)
Allegiance to none, yet nowhere to stand
Time has come, to fight or die
Enter the arena, coliseum of the beast
The hunter, the hunted, the carnage for the feast
Chapel in peril, prey of the possessed
Harboring foes forgotten by all
Returning Babylon, worship the whore
The finale in geneses sabotaged by war

[Chorus]

Holy are the wicked, into the white
Cast into purgatory, all must face the light
Crucifix and serpentine
Condemned before the law
Domination of the anarch
Crucifix will fall

Armies approach the final gate
Gathered there to watch and wait
Their time has almost come to rise
The darkness grows to deadly size
Overwhelming evil force
Too late to stop their bitter course
Invaders conquer, without a fight
Like plagues of blackness blocking light

[Chorus]

Persecuted subservient to tyranny
Witness to thine own elegy
Execution of the deed
Unlamented sympathies
Assassins led by blasphemy
Buried without thine dignity

[Solo: Kurt, Mike]
7. Terror and Submission (4:58)
The conflict raises swift before you
Abominations of human life
As if you've seen it all before you
Join the celebrated strife
From somewhere deep beneath the surface
The calls of millions just fade away
Signalling their new traditions
Timeless honour, the proud must pray

[Chorus]

Submit to force
I will stand my ground to the bitter end
Submit to force
None deny me my right to die
Submit to force
Now the terror is real
Submit to force
Closer to fear than before

Holy light of dawn is coming
Prince of darkness now retires
The black cat eyed feline mistress
Chants by the cauldron's fire
Packs of human wolves are howling
Smell of blood is in the air
Banshee screams her hellish aria
Faithful souls beware

[Chorus]

[Solo: Kurt]

[Chorus]
8. Tomorrow's End (5:05)
Projectiles of death falling from the sky
Destroying humanity
As the mist of darkness rots the lives
Evil's presence is seen
Tartarus is rising through the Earth
As darkness fills the world
Voices are howling through the air
But no one speaks a word

[Chorus]

The demons curse rules the night with terror and disease
Bleeding souls captured in the sights shadows of the beast

Mephistophelian boundaries trap the souls
Who walk the night alone
No tomorrow except for those
Who follow what they know
Plutonium children attack the world
With Lucifer at their helm
Ascending from the infernal empire
The spirits of doom take hold

[Chorus]

The final day the final battle
The final judgement call
Bleeding souls of Armageddon
Bloodshed plagues us all
Blessed enough to see the light
Shining in the sky
Blind enough to walk the night
Tempting flames shall fly
Who's the one to save your life
And turn the night to day

[Solo: Mike, Kurt, Mike, Kurt, Mike, Kurt, Mike, Kurt]
9. Guardians of the Netherworld (5:33)
Protectors of forbidden places, keepers of the watch
Seeing those enslavened faces, withered souls forgotten lives
Atop the perch a silent throne, the vindicating eyes
Believing their all seeing vision
Saints of hell, of desperate cries

Guardians of the Netherworld, captors of the damned
Pinnacle of your disaster, the watcher on the stand
Exiled on a lifeless steeple, appointed from above
A veil was placed across our brow
Anointed one and all, to die

A war is raging on inside us, guarded by the horde
With lesser gods of higher rank, prodding them to war
No Father, Son, or Holy Spirit
Nor defences from the foe
All are battered, tortured, shattered
Allegiance without death is woe

Guardians of the Netherworld, captors of the damned
Pinnacle of your disaster, the watcher on the stand
Exiled on a lifeless steeple, appointed from above
A veil was placed across our brow
Anointed one and all, to die
For lust of life

A maelstrom of impending evil, futile fight to win
Tides of blackness, pull you toward it
Consuming within its doors
Both life and death

[Solo: Kurt]
