Baptism Under Fire Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Impaler (3:26)
Oh yes children
If you only knew what lies ahead of you

Vladimir rules in his legacy of pain
Cruelty reeks from his demented reign
Descendant in hate of the great Ghenghis Khan
Son of the devil whose wrath shall be done

Torture the peasants, in poverty die
The servants are gutted, in flames they shall fry
Heads of the nobles are cut off in glee
And fed to the crabs, the monarch shall eat

The forest of corpses on wooden stakes of death
The tyrant dines within their midst with blood on his breath

Beware, beware, beware the impaler
Beware, beware the impaler
Beware, beware the impaler

Kingdom be beaten by the Count of the Dead
The hats of the generals be nailed to their heads
Women and children impaled on the stakes
Our price has been rendered for some last mistake

The forest of corpses on wooden stakes of death
The tyrant dines within their midst with blood on his breath

Beware, beware, beware the impaler
Beware, beware the impaler
Beware, beware the impaler
Beware, beware the impaler
Beware, beware the impaler
2. Slow Death (2:01)
Six feet under, six feet deep
Beneath your feet is where I sleep
Shall not rest, rest in peace
Where I live, need no lease

Keep your distance - don't get too near
Keep your distance - in me you'll fear

Pain from pleasure, pleasure from pain
A slow death, seductive reign
Hear my words, my sweet refrain
Gone too far, I've gone insane

Dreams turn to nightmares
Nightmares turn to day
Day turns to suffering
When you come my way

Keep your distance - don't get too near
Keep your distance - in me you'll fear
A slow death

Six feet under, six feet deep
Beneath your feet is where I sleep
Shall not rest, rest in peace
Where I live, need no lease

Keep your distance - don't get too near
Keep your distance - in me you'll fear
A slow death
3. Cast the First Stone (2:42)
Cast away

Thou shalt not steal for the payment is great
Forged less in justice than tempered in hate
Hear the town fathers sound the decree
Rocked to death for larceny

Assemble ye people, come save our town
The blights of corruption shall bring us all down
To punish the cretins, their dept yet to pay
So gather the stones and cast away

Strip the lowly thief
Down to flesh and bone
Stand in line, my children
To cast the first stone
Cast away

So come join our circle, pass judgement on all
Eradicate liars and watch them all fall
There's no saving disgrace for those sunk low
No saving grace is ours to bestow
Hear my words now

Strip the lowly thief
Down to flesh and bone
Stand in line, my children
To cast the first stone
Cast away
Cast the first stone
Cast away
Cast the first stone
4. Rains of Death (3:09)
Unto the seed of destruction
Of war's weapon construction
Rains from the air, a fate to beware
Its purpose is human reduction

Decay consumes all the land
Infestation taking command
Disease in the wind, epidemic begins
Life's taking the plague by the hand

Be prepared, stand alert
Take cover, hit the dirt
The plague is coming down in
Rains of death

Rotting flesh on the ground
The stench of death is all around
Bleeding sores grow and death comes slow
It kills without any sound

Capsules explode in the sky
The deadly germs multiply
Swarming the earth, the apocalypse birth
Riddled bodies of those who die

Be prepared, stand alert
Take cover, hit the dirt
The plague is coming down in
Rains of death
The plague is coming down in
Rains of death
The plague is coming down in
Rains of death

The plague is coming down in
Rains of death
5. Cut Throat (2:00)
Incision seal, stiletto mark
Vindictive hate, festered by dark
Treason's sibling, treacherous spite
Eerie presence, one with the night

Blinding fury, fade into black
Rise in our midst, silent attack

Cut your throat
Cut you down, cut you down
Cut you down, cut you down
Cut you down, cut you down
And I won't stop tonight
See ya
6. All Hallow's Eve (3:18)
Dread the end of summer
On the blackest of all nights
The feast of Samhain's waking
In the midst of pagan rites
The sunlight now is waning
As the undead walk the land
Tonight's chaos no mortal understands

Festival of darkness
The red October moon
The powers of black witchcraft
In evil winds of ruin
Demons ride the Autumn sky
In thunderclouds and rain
The gasps of forlorn souls who live again

All hallow's eve, the spirits rise
From the shoulders of an icy cold abyss
All hallow's eve, a sacrifice
Taken from a skeleton's kiss
All hallow's eve, the spirits rise
From the shoulders of an icy cold abyss
All hallow's eve, a sacrifice
Taken from a skeleton's kiss

Light the sacred bonfires
Consuming evil's lair
The fury of the banshee
Banished to the air
The day of all the saints
Is ushered by the dawn
The forces of night will be gone

All hallow's eve, the spirits rise
From the shoulders of an icy cold abyss
All hallow's eve, a sacrifice
Taken from a skeleton's kiss

Hallow's Eve, Hallow's Eve, Hallow's Eve
Hallow's Eve, Hallow's Eve, Hallow's Eve
Hallow's Eve, Hallow's Eve, Hallow's Eve
Hallow's Eve, Hallow's Eve, Hallow's Eve
7. Burn Tonight (2:37)
Lights go out and I go under
Open your eyes and feel the thunder
A stage is set and you will wonder
A match is met and you will plunder

For you'll burn, you'll burn tonight
You'll burn, you'll burn tonight
You'll burn, you'll burn tonight
You'll burn, you'll burn tonight

Try to run, try to flee
It's no use, can't you see
Take my hand and come with me
I'll cleanse your soul and set you free... burn!

Lights go out and I go under
Open your eyes and feel the thunder
A stage is set and you will wonder
A match is met and you will plunder

For you'll burn, you'll burn tonight
You'll burn, you'll burn tonight
You'll burn, you'll burn tonight
You'll burn, you'll burn tonight

instrumental
9. Purgatory's Child (3:44)
In the black on a night long past
The fates of many in death was cast
A pact of blood, life gone awry
Destiny waits, the man chose to die

A soul in torment cannot rest alone
Freedom never will be shown ...show me!

To take thine own life is never to pass
Rendered final penance, tranquility cannot last...no!

So come hither to Purgatory's child
Flaming embers burning wild
A ghastly essence, come take my side
I consume your soul
You can feel the ebbing tide

Draining lifeblood feeds his blackened core
Bound in service nevermore
So my spirit can now rest in peace
I take your life as i release
10. Blizzards (2:35)
Tread lightly on the icy peril
To the castles made of snow
Wandering in solitude
To the place that no one knows
No signs of life here are present
The world is void of sound
The stifled screams of anguish
Echo all around

Storm is now descending
All havoc in its wake
Paradise be damned
As the blizzards start to break

The hovering of stromclouds
Danger to entice
Cutting through all flesh and bone
With daggers made of ice
Frost bite strikes the unfortunate
Trapped within this realm
Travels in desperation
By nature overwhelmed

Storm is now descending
All havoc in its wake
Paradise be damned
As the blizzards start to break
11. Hang 'em High (3:20)
The red sun of summer burns the desert sands
The journey of the outlaw across the barren lands
Galloping fast in horseback, hooves echo in the hills
To escape a sheriff's posse who chase a man that kills

Clad in denim black, his forehead bleeds with sweat
Searching for some water to keep his whistle wet
The lawmen close behind him hasten up their pace
The outlaw and the noose are in their fatal race

Execution - high noon
Feel the rope tighten
Death is coming soon
So hang 'em high, hang 'em high

In the misty mountains the air smokes with heat
A fugitive and his horse collapse into a heap
They find their beaten foe, no longer on the loose
And slip his battered neck into the deadly noose

Whip the horse's ass, the outlaw falls off his back
Dangling from a rope, hear his neck bones crack
Legs are kicking wildly, rope digs way to bone
The lifeless body hanging heaves its dying moan

Execution - high noon
Feel the rope tighten
Death is coming soon
So hang 'em high, hang 'em high

Hang 'em, hang 'em, hang 'em high
Hang 'em, hang 'em, hang 'em high
Hang 'em, hang 'em, hang 'em high
