Rather Death Than False of Faith Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Wait
1. Rabid (4:32)
Running in the night, you’re worried for your life
You know he’s going to take you
Dare not look behind, scared for what you’ll find
It’s his demesne you run through

Running blind: He’s close behind and the morning’s going to find you dead
Feel the bite of the axe in his frenzied attack: Hack and slash, he’ll detach your head
Hot, wet breath on your naked neck and his every step sounds loud as thunder
You won’t wake as the sunlight breaks on your makeshift grave. You’ll be six feet under

Die
Rabid: Death descends
Rabid: Kill again
Rabid: The madman’s loose
The killing never ends

The mist is on the rise. There’s murder in his eyes
They’re never going to find him
The echo of his step plays herald to your death
You’re just another victim

Then it seems the ground is reaching out to drag you down to die
Mounting fear: Screams in your ears you feel. You’ve heard the banshee’s cry
One more corpse in an ice-cold morgue, will there be no end to this bloody slaughter
On your knees, strength ebbs and leaves, you beg and plead as your life burns shorter

Die
Rabid: Death descends
Rabid: Kill again
Rabid: The madman’s loose
The killing never ends
2. Crucifier (4:48)
Heathen scum, disbeliever with your pagan gods … blasphemy
Feel the wrath of divine vengeance break your mind … insanity

How dare you mock the one and only God?
I’ll show you: Nail you to the burning cross

Crucifier, die in pain, I’ll burn your flesh away
Lucifer will claim your soul on this your judgement day
A cross of fire lights up the night in glory to His name
Crucifier, in the name of God: Religion gone insane

Evil sinner, fornicator, repent your ways before you die
Cleansed in flame, pure white fire illuminates the darkening sky

Leave your corpse a black reminder to your kind
They will fall and in the darkness, Truth will shine

Crucifier, die in pain, I’ll burn your flesh away
Lucifer will claim your soul on this your judgement day
A cross of fire lights up the night in glory to His name
Crucifier, in the name of God: Religion gone insane
3. The House (3:34)
Smell the stench of burning flesh from the run-down house on that run-down street
The madman, he will take you there; chain you up for easy meat
Gynophobic nightmares haunt his every hour, the man is sick
He’ll take you to his torture chamber, leave you tied up in a pit

Once you’re there you’ll never see the light of day again
Trapped and lost in the hands of a man insane

Watch for the house. You can’t get out
Locked in the house
You know he’s there. He knows what you’re about

Thrown into a water hole, electric cables lay nearby
You scream for help but no-one hears, you know this is your time to die
Current courses through your flesh: At least now, the torture stops
He’ll take your lifeless corpse away, take his knife and cut you up

Once you’re there you’ll never see the light of day again
Trapped and lost in the hands of a man insane

Watch for the house. You can’t get out
Locked in the house
You know he’s there. He knows what you’re about

Twenty-four pounds of human limbs are lying under ice
Killer, rapist, cannibal, you’re caught up in his vice
Dog-meat, bread and water are the only things you get to eat
And when you can take no more he’ll take you, cut you into meat

Once you’re there you’ll never see the light of day again
Trapped and lost in the hands of a man insane

Watch for the house. You can’t get out
Locked in the house
You know he’s there. He knows what you’re about
4. Right to Die (7:14)
Trapped in life, a crippled shell
No release from living Hell
Waking nightmare; ceaseless pain
Take your way out while you’re still sane

By their laws they have denied
The dignity of suicide
Murder is your one release
The route to your blessed decease

Please grant me the right to die with dignity. Let me die

Alive but dead, an active brain
Locked within a fleshy grave
Cries for solace, cries ignored
Screaming for the fiery sword of death

Please grant me the right to die with dignity. Let me die

One, one chance, one life, one death

Purgatory: Not life or death
Praying for the final breath
See the torment in my eyes
Pull the plug. Let me die

Please grant me the right to die with dignity. Let me die
5. Rather Death Than False of Faith (4:43)
Time for you to rise and smash the tyrant’s chains
Show the world we’ll never toil beneath the yoke again
The stain of black corruption marks their faecal way
The might of blackened steel will have its rightful say

This, the gift bequeathed you: Blasphemy, violence and sin
Take the world beneath you in the grasp of the iron fist

Rise against the force of hate. Rather death than false of faith
Besiege the world without restraint. Rather death than false of faith
Turn around the curse of fate. Rather death than false of faith
Rise against the force of hate. Rather death than false of faith

Legions of the loud, let vengeance have its say
These fools have run our lives too long; let’s bring them down in pain
The swarm of grim destruction leaves nothing in its wake
And we won’t stop ‘til evil in its grave, eternal, lays

This, the gift bequeathed you: Blasphemy, violence and sin
Take the world beneath you in the grasp of the iron fist

Rise against the force of hate. Rather death than false of faith
Besiege the world without restraint. Rather death than false of faith
Turn around the curse of fate. Rather death than false of faith
Rise against the force of hate. Rather death than false of faith
6. Misanthropic (3:13)
Study closely the ways of man. It will help you understand
Festering evil in its head: Humankind decrees its death

I’ll see you die, Mankind
Be destroyed by your own kind

Nuclear Armageddon waits: The culmination of your fate
The Ragnarok of modern times: Just punishment for heinous crimes

I’ll see you die, Mankind
Be destroyed by your own kind
7. Harlequin (7:15)
Thousands came, a human tide to see the proud, Crown Prince of Lies
Tied by fear, your Latin cries, “Power from blue, immortal skies”
Long, hard life and all that’s left are dreams of living after death
Crowd around to be blessed. Obey at the Papal behest

Money talks and riches grown to pay for their Salvation Show
God exists? Well who can know? The blind have but one way to go
Millions starve, yet money’s spent to show the priest is Heaven sent
“Morals” reign, yet logic’s bent: Who walks with kings in cruel torment?

Disbelieve the Harlequin; his book is full of lies
Disbelieve the Harlequin; his tongue is edged with knives
Disbelieve the Harlequin; he’ll sign away your lives
Disbelieve the Harlequin; he’s all you should despise

Fear and guilt his stock in trade, telling you, you must behave
Binding words to make you slaves. Toe the line or burn in flame
Pay his way with gold and blood, listening with your eyes shut
Omnipresent God above rules by fear, not words of love

Disbelieve the Harlequin; his book is full of lies
Disbelieve the Harlequin; his tongue is edged with knives
Disbelieve the Harlequin; he’ll sign away your lives
Disbelieve the Harlequin; he’s all you should despise
8. Guillotine (3:27)
Expectation on your face
Waiting for the black embrace
If they’ve no bread, let them eat cake
You’re fouling up the human race

You’re head’s too full of shit to hear
But now grim execution’s here
Death is swift and very near
You’re gripped by ever-mounting fear

Raise the guillotine
The war of class begins
Watch the blade descend
Your rule is at an end

Disease and famine running rife
You didn’t stop; didn’t think twice
And so you’ve forfeited your life
And they will put you to the knife

Once thing you didn’t understand
A hungry man’s an angry man
Eventually, he’ll make a stand
And fight you any way he can

Raise the guillotine
The war of class begins
Watch the blade descend
Your rule is at an end

Crimson murder, fury grows
To end the reign of the aristos
You face the angry, jeering rows
Before your precious blue blood flows

Before the screaming mob you stand
And at last, now, you understand
You lost your rights to your homeland
And didn’t raise a pampered hand

Raise the guillotine
The war of class begins
Watch the blade descend
Your rule is at an end
