12 Gauge Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Mefisto
1. Rust Never Sleeps (5:16)
The evil seed
Planted for you
The apple tree
Picked for you

Ceremony begins
Master propagates
Oneness prevails
Evil in disguise

Feel the touch on your head
Divine lights fill your mind

A dopamine trip, A synaptic crash
And you fall into the trap

The imam speaks to the herd
Divine lights fill their minds

A dopamine trip, A synaptic crash
And you fall into the trap

Rust never sleeps
Makes you to believe
What do you achieve?
Harmony or peace?

The old prophet lies in his graves
With the grin on his face
Watching the marionette's dance
Well, he took heed of his chance

And the man wearing cape
Is ready for a trade
Eins, zwei, drei
Arbeit macht frei

A dopamine trip, A synaptic crash
And you fall into the trap

Rust never sleeps
Makes you to believe
What do you achieve?
Harmony or peace?
2. One of Fail (4:10)
I am the man of my words
If I'm not drunk or disturbed
I am the one of your daydreams
Don't call me sexy I'm angry

hiiop, hiiop

I'm only happy when it hurts
All by myself, don't need no help

One of fail Master Jack is my true name
To prevail I am breaking my balls
One of fail Master Jack is my true name
To prevail I am breaking my balls

hiiop, hiiop! It will rise!

I'm not sedate even when I sleep
hurry will bother when I eat
Already one foot in the grave
Another one slipping on the soap

hiiop, hiiop

One of fail Master Jack is my true name
To prevail I am breaking my balls
One of fail Master Jack is my true name
To prevail I am breaking my balls
3. Bullets Are Blind (4:27)
Merchant of death is on the loose and haunts you
he has stuck in his own hell and can't break through

And when the man standing still
his hands are swept but that was the deal

Truce concluded and the war farewelled
Most poisonous weapon is coming in
Travels in the bags, carried by the cross
Aid is the name of the game

All the people on this earth feel comfort
Yeah, we read like the devil reads the bible

Soon the world is shaking again
The gunman's speech is about to begin

Beautiful words from the political cream
The outlaw is now taken in
Eyewashed democracy cannot keep its feet
Without the backing on the weak

People will die but they're far and away
So never mind bullets are blind
People will die but they're far and away
So never mind bullets are blind

Lady liberty shakes at her base
Inexpressiveness on her face

Crawlers will crawl and the gauntlet is on
We all playing our cards
Victory or not, does it matter because we all are struck
And we just can't get out

People will die but they're far and away
So never mind bullets are blind
People will die but they're far and away
So never mind bullets are blind
4. Swampwar (4:19)
And the swamp was a desolate, treeless bog
Useless rat hole in the back of beyond
One day came a tractor along came a greed man
To start the draining, to tear the turf out of its bed

Splash, Splash, Splash went the bog
Crash, crash, crash went the rig

Crossing the swamp there was a tuft he had to cross
And beneath the turf mat there was a home of an ugly troll
So woke up the Swamplord who was the guardian of the bog
horror over the man as he heard the sound of a rumbling voice

Who's that wading on my swamp?

Swampwar the time has come to stop the deprivation
Swampwar we have to accept instead of domination
Swampwar the time has come to stop the deprivation
Swampwar we have to accept instead of domination

Hahaa Now I'm going to gobble you up!
Snip, snap, snout!
This tale is told out

Swampwar the time has come to stop the deprivation
Swampwar we have to accept instead of domination
Swampwar the time has come to stop the deprivation
Swampwar we have to accept instead of domination
5. Better Not to Tell (3:58)
Good luck to you little one in your life
Follow you own path
Danger is lurking around the corner
And you don't know
Who is the maker of your taker?
Better not to tell

The taker's on the loose and the bog-eyes are haunting
So never look back
Countless are the days that you'll be afflicted
But never abandoned

Prices are high without guarantee
You have to pay
Don't go beyond the bounds of reasonable
You don't need it all
why all the bad just can't be undone?
Better not to tell

Mark my words now, life is never pointless
Look out! There's a hole in the ice
Reach out and extend your arms
give the alms to the one who will need

Mark my words now, life is never pointless
Look out! There's a hole in the ice
Reach out and extend your arms
give the alms to the one who will need

Mark my words now
Give the alms to the one who will need
6. Hook the Monster (4:04)
One the surface of the lake
Thousand sunbeams playing their game
The line marking its own way
Through the mirror of the day

And the boat is gliding slowly
Early in the morning glow
The flash of silver will follow
Is calling the green beast from below

Soon its tail raises the mud
The beast is ready for attack
The reel screams the line beings to run
And the struggle shall begin

Bites the lure A massive bonehead
Pulling hard Blending water
In the boat A firm man standing
The fight is one to hook the monster

And with butter it will be fried
Gulped down with great desire
But soon this tall and fairy man
A fishbone in his throat he will fall

Bites the lure A massive bonehead
Pulling hard Blending water
In the boat A firm man standing
The fight is one to hook the monster
7. Godeye (4:25)
My words, words are your law
Perfection with no regression
Obey, obey your ruler
Refusal is out of question
Supreme overpower
Used by the highest author
I make the rules you follow
Everything you have to swallow

You can't turn my head
Because I've deviced
I am gods, I
You can't turn my head
Because I've deviced
I am gods, I

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who is the fairest of all
Iam, I am the king now
Hallowed be my name
Visage it's just perfect
Can't be-no- detected
Always effing and blinding
Built like a brick shithouse

You can't turn my head
Because I've deviced
I am gods, I
You can't turn my head
Because I've deviced
I am gods, I

I am Godeye, the world is mine
I'll keep on watching you so do it right
Under the control just stay blind
Follow the order you can't deny

I am Godeye, the world is mine
I'll keep on watching you so do it right
Under the control just stay blind
Follow the order you can't deny
8. 12 Gauge (5:50)
Lairs doctors, the tools of evil
Give the recipes that will heal the sadness
Inside the pill can the saviour is waiting
Swallow the sweet taste of madness

Chemical feelings that everything is going will
Hallucination takes you down into the deepest swamp
The combination, an everlasting, final tramp
Without any doubts tomorrows need is more and more

Allowed demon inside the bottle
hear him calling and he will tear you down
Just take a pull and start the dreaming
Insidious session, Messiah is still bleeding

Chemical feelings that everything is going will
Hallucination takes you down into the deepest swamp
The combination, an everlasting, final tramp
Without any doubts tomorrows need is more and more

And soon the day will come black, black
Makes you feel that you are a scumbag
Standing deep in the same dead end
The only friend that you have 12 gauge

Chemical feelings that everything is going will
Hallucination takes you down into the deepest swamp
The combination, an everlasting, final tramp
Without any doubts tomorrows need is more and more

And soon the day will come black, black
Makes you feel that you are a scumbag
Standing deep in the same dead end
The only friend that you have 12 gauge

Good bye my friends,
Good bye.
9. Sacramentum (6:28)
Cheering voices
The arena is waiting for me

Thousand eyes are watching me now
Noble stand I in front of those
Who have condemned me

the oath has been taken
A chance to reborn
Now it's time to earn the place among the others

Gone away the past, my name, my land
All have I lost
Now fighting for the thumb to rise, to fall
To crawl before the emperor

Falling down the sand
In a foreign land
Nothing left to stand
But the oath obligates
Sacramentum

Metal clashes
Flames and Ashes

The way of glory or the end of story
Rise the sword and fight for freedom or destruction
Burned by fire
Bound in chains
To be beaten
Willing to die by the sword

countless are the days I've spent, I've prayed
My gods take me home
Taken are the dreams I've had
So please, please spear me now

Falling down the sand
In a foreign land
Nothing left to stand
But the oath obligates
Sacramentum
