Unholy Cult Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Of Martyrs and Men (5:25)
Burdened by the world, too weak to deal with life
Bow to show your love, bow to show devotion
Drowning in the sickness that vomits forth deceit
Fear not what is said, but fear what you believe

Ravaged by their words and into their open arms
Like thieves they'll steal your mind and use it to control
An endless sea of faces, an endless sea of loss
Take your place in line and serve them until the end

Do you think you follow greatness
Do you think you follow the divine

Do you think you are the chosen
Do you think you are the few

A genocide of faith
The faithful wait their turn

Just like slaves...hand in hand
Just like ghosts...souls in hand

You take their lives
You take our hearts
You have no shame

You shake the world
Dramatic stage
For your own gain

You say you're men
We know you're cowards
You pitiful fools
The true strong remain

Just like slaves...hand in hand
Just like ghosts...now you're damned
2. Sinful Nature (3:16)
Our course is our own, I know we're to blame
We're born into shame, to live in despair

I feel such pity for what we've become
Our needs and desires...our weakness, our pain

Our need to fulfil, the urges we feel
It weakens our will, it brings us great pain

A flood of hatred surges inside
Control it, deny it...let it run free

I can't run away...I can't hide from myself
It is what I am...it is what we are

Look around and see...pathetic human beasts
We have written our own ending

How can we live with ourselves
Our jealousy, our tyranny
The lives we make, the lives we take
The fools we serve, the fools we are

Brazen in our final days
Our time on top is near on end
It's clear to me we'll never change
It's clear that I will never change
The tragedy of life we live
The tragedy of life we'll see
We call it human nature
The seducer of mankind

Our course is our own, I know we're to blame
We're born into shame, to live in despair
A flood of hatred surges inside
Control it, deny it...let it run free

I can't run away...I can't hide from myself
It is what I am...it is what we are
Look around and see...pathetic human beasts
We have written our own ending

How can we live with ourselves
Our jealousy, our tyranny
The lives we make, the lives we take
The fools we serve, the fools we are
3. Unholy Cult (8:02)
It feels like we're blind...It feels like we're dead
We'll never find our way...we'll never feel the light of day

Don't try to think...Don't try to live your own life
We have you for keeps...Our ways are sewn deep in your hearts and minds

The colours have faded...everything's black
Darkness around me...Darkness inside me

Your blood line stops here...We are your family now Prepare for the end...a
new life awaits us beyond

Like a shadow over mankind
Towering over the light
Love for abuse, can't they see
Humanity struggles to be free

Are you willing to die for us
Are you willing to die with us

Strip us down to nothing and use us as you wish
Like little pawns you move around at your fingertips
We beg to serve and serve you well, you keep us in the dark
Hold us close and suffocate the souls you've led astray

The cycle's complete...the pieces for ruin are in place Our subjects are
ready...to seal our date with infamy

Like a shadow over mankind
Towering over the light
Love for abuse, can't they see
Humanity struggles to be free
4. Wolf Among the Flock (3:49)
I am the one...leader of promise
Stalking lost souls
Rabid for the taste of faith

Pull you close to me...I will make you see
Spit my fears into your hearts
Feed your minds with my disease

I'll make them doubt themselves
I'll make you loathe yourself

I am the one...creature of moves
Sending my pack out into the world
Those loyal to me grow like a plague

They'll bow in praise of me...they will be slaves to me
I will bring them to their knees
Devoured soul by soul

I'll make them light for me
I'll make them die for me

You'll feed me your young and I take them with pride
I'll offer you some guilt and a lifetime of lies
Let me tease you with wonders and surround you with me
For I shall be your life, and your life shall be for me

I'm your world, I'm your light, I am all the answers you seek
You'll walk throughout your empty lives, but never challenge me
For I am god, I am every God, I'm whatever you wish of me
I'm the beast you've created, and I'm the beast you'll serve
5. Reluctant Messiah (4:58)
Reluctant messiah, show us the way
Don't let us down, we have no one left
Your unwillingness to prove, what we believe
The signs you won't leave, we still seem to find

Such distance between us, but we know you are here
We feel your presence, it guides us along
But why won't you answer or send us some hope
We'll just keep searching for what we know is there

Why has our day not yet come
We've sacrificed our fathers and sons
We spill blood but shed not a tear
Our anger grows, but so does our fear

Speak to us...
What have we done wrong
We just want to believe In something larger than life itself
Speak to us...
Let us know your voice
We just want you to see
Our faith is true
We just want you to see
Our faith is true

What more can we do...
He must feel our devotion
Will he know the righteous from the fallen...
Will he know we're the first in line
Save us from our fate...
Save us from our faith
6. A Kingdom Divided (4:16)
The kingdom falls and with it goes the darkness of the world
It's malignant soul had burned so bright in the glory of it's day
Wars were fought in it's name and life was cast aside
So many lives were sacrificed to keep the kingdom strong

The kingdom falls and with it goes the shadow that it cast It's king alone,
to stand in shame, a symbol of the past
The pulse that beat for centuries had died out long ago
And now divided the people see the truth behind the show

Watch them scramble for cover
Watch them try to hold it together
Frantic to stop it's collapse
But change has finally come

Divided it will fall
It's fabric rips and tears
The beating of it's heart
Will never again be heard

Foundation built on the flesh of the past
Twisting it's purpose through years of neglect
Conflict of power, true soldiers are scarce
A kingdom divided will not stand

The kingdom falls and with it goes the arrogance it reeked The darkness
that was hidden deep now on the surface flows
Humbled now before the world it shows its ugly face
Tear this cancer from the world and purge it from our lives
7. Rival the Eminent (5:35)
Not all of us choose to believe
Some of us choose to live
Not all of us follow so blindly
And accept all that we hear

Maybe you're not so smart
To look outside yourself
Maybe you've chosen unwisely
In the God you've made your own

I'll be my own leader
I'll be my own saviour
I'll be the strength that carries
I'll be the light that guides...me
I will make you see
Your devotion is in vain
I'll be the one left standing
When all of you are kneeling
And smiling, so content
I'll wipe the smiles off your faces

Don't you dare pity me
I've made my choice and I'll prove you wrong

My voice will thunder through the heavens
And my flames of hatred burn
I believe in me and only me
And I bow to no sovereign
8. Bring Them Down (6:06)
Looking down from on top of it all
Looking down on everyone else
So high above, it all looks the same
Bring you down to see how it is

The greatness you feel, so smug on your throne
Your view of it all is clouded and warped
Clearly you'll see how it unfolds
Brought down from above to see how it is

Don't you feel passion
Don't you know love
The bitterness that drives you
Will hurt us all

Down with the righteous, down with the liars
Down with the leaders who rape their own men
Down with your idols, down with your ideals
Down with the thieves who rob us of life

King to king, so hungry for power
Fortress to fortress with no ground to gain
On missions of hatred that lead us to ruin
A course that would change if we bring them down

Down to the sorrow, down to the crying
Brought down to the suffering, now how does it feel
Down to the horror, down to the screaming
Brought down to the silence they'll hear in the end
