Iced Earth Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Iced Earth (5:22)
[Music: Schaffer / Lyrics: Schaffer]

What do I see
On the icy plains
The desolate one
It's my terrain
The wind it blows cold
Howling my name
I am the king
The king of this waste
Can't you see this barren land
Lain to waste
Ravaged, scorched, yet frozen
From your neglect
I am the formless one
I came to save
You are the chosen ones
You'll be my slaves
I stand on the glacier
Above it all
Watching them crumble
Watching them crawl
Iced Earth has risen
Nature will fall
Can you feel the madness here
Drawing you all too near
Earth, fire, water and air
Save yourselves from despair
We are together now
Crush the cowards, do it now
End the light, end the one
We have come to save
the young ones
So on an on
The story goes
Destroying yourselves
The pain it shows
2. Written On The Walls (6:07)
[Music: Schaffer, Shawver, Abell, Adam / Lyrics: Adam]

One the night the darkness fell
Across the naked land
A demon force was summoned up
From the bowels of hell
The stench of death grew thick that night
We knew it was the end
We run to find a place to hid
The land was raped and bare
The wind it blows a eerie cold
A fog that never lifts
Their tears will flood the land tonight
And the thunder's drowned by screams
As I lay here
Freezing veins of ice
What will be for me
What will be the price
Is it what they say
Is it written on the walls
Why can't we stop
This shattered worlds' fate
Why didn't we try at all
Armageddon town life is gone
We knew it was the way
Written down so long ago
Implanted in our minds
Our fathers told us of this hell
They read it on the walls
It's written on the walls
It's written on the walls
The frightened children know not why
And no one will explain
We've brought it all upon ourselves
An ending to this world
Forgiveness for your soul you pray
But it's written on the walls
3. Colors (4:51)
[Music: Schaffer, Shawver / Lyrics: Schaffer]

Walking in the subway
Alone late at night
New York City gangs
Everywhere in sight
You feel their anger upon you
You feel their hateful eyes
Walk a little faster now
You're fighting for your life
As they walk on closer
Their eyes burn down your back
You feel a thousand cries
Not prepared for their attack
A mission bell sent sign
A sign that boards soon
You've come this far, no turning back
We hope you make it too
Don't expect, sympathy
We don't know, the word
You've walked my turf, insanity
But in this place you die
Your life is wasted
Your blood is tasted
As it drips down the blade
You didn't make it
You couldn't take it
You walked the subway you paid
Your money's gone
Your clothes they're torn
You're lying in a pool of blood
You know you're leaving
We watch you grieving
But in this place you die
Don't expect sympathy
We don't know the word
You walked my turf, insanity
But in this place you die
4. Curse The Sky (4:41)
[Music: Schaffer, Shawver / Lyrics: Schaffer]

How much hate
Can one man feel
When his kingdom is crumbling
How much pain
Can one man take
When his future is melting
Eyes of fire blast his brain
Cursing heaven and hell
Nothing barred just asking why
No answers to be heard
Fire eyes, curse the skies
Thanks maker for questions unanswered
Falsify, disposition died
You detest the faker
Eyes, lies
I curse the skies
Tell me something
Tell me why
Terror reigns, I'm in pain
Why, why, I curse the sky
Tattered times and brainwashed minds
Cluttering up his thinking
Boiled hate just can't wait
There's no more self control
Eyes, lies
I curse the skies
Tell me something
Tell me why
Terror reigns, I'm in pain
Why, why, I curse the sky
5. Life And Death (6:08)
[Music: Schaffer, Shawver / Lyrics: Schaffer]

I came into this world
A screaming infant
Forced entry into this life
As I grow the pain sustains
Deep inside my soul
Visions come and visions go
But hate will never leave me
As I grow the pain sustains
Deep inside my soul
Visions come and visions go
But hate will never leave me
Life and death never again
I shall not return
Soul sucking pious man
I shall not return
The reflection, an aging soul
My body's old and cracked
Death soon will be with me
Coldness, inactive pain
Soul sucked at the speed of light
Trapped in someone else
No please not again
Evil reincarnated
The cycle's spun once more
Soul sucked at the speed of light
6. Solitude (1:44)
[Music: Schaffer, Shawver]

[Instrumental]
7. The Funeral (6:15)
[Music: Schaffer, Shawver]

[Instrumental]
8. When The Night Falls (9:02)
[Music: Schaffer / Lyrics: Schaffer]

Look, out in the distant sky
Open, up your weakened minds
Feel, what's in store for you
The jackals howling at the moon
See, the curtain of the night
Falling, down into your life
Doom, is headed straight for you
The night comes shining through
Join us in our never ending journey
Into the burning lake of fire
Let us fill your helpless soul
Fill it with sweet desire
When the night falls
When the moon's full
Recall, the look in their eyes
The sign of hat, it burns
They've come for us, but we'll fight
Till death
Hypnotizing, paralyzing
Brings me to my knees
Tantalizing suicide
Drives me to the edge
When the night falls, when death crawls
Frozen in my sleep
Rippers slashing, terror laughing
Numbers burning deep
Join us in our never ending journey
Into the burning lake of fire
Let us fill your helpless soul
Fill it with sweet desire
When the night falls
When the moon's full
