Prevail Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Prevail (3:56)
"Went to hell
Everybody ends up dead
It's just a matter of when"

Prevail!

[Pre-chorus:]
Trapped in a web of lies
I never seen the truth
When it stared me in the eyes
Damn... the ones who betray
Every single chance
That I give everyday
Break all the chains that bind
All these pains are lost in the cries
Faith in the day that will come
The chance to overcome

[Chorus:]
Never seen the face of defeat
Never felt the cries of the weak
Never once thought of surrender
This heart is somber
I will rise 'til the end
Sever the souls that bled
I will take this courage
And turn it into rage
Prevail
The time has come
Crush the enemy one by one
Prevail
Like a venomous snake
Ready to strike and dominate
Prevail
We conquer as one
Pound the enemy 'til it's done
Prevail!

What doesn't kill you
Makes you stronger and bitter
What hasn't made you
Can die quicker and faster
I'll turn the tables around
And wait to break you down

Embraced by warmth and fear
This day will shine in tears

[Pre-chorus]

[Chorus]
2. Taking the World by Storm (4:01)
Corruption (corruption)
A poisoned apple
That feeds your loss
Weaken (weaken)
Reality is the greatest curse

Welcome to this
Ensuring soft will
I tried so hard
Through the impossible
Clenching my fists
This fight will never end
Nation rise
Taking the world by storm

Overcome the pain
Overcome, overcome
Take away the fear
Break away, break away
Kill the voice inside
Kill the lie, kill the lie

Destruction (destruction)
Words of wisdom played upon
Repent (repent)
the day you reach the sun

Welcome to this
Ensuring soft will
I tried so hard
Through the impossible
Clenching my fists
This fight will never end
Nation rise
Taking the world by storm

Overcome the pain
Overcome, overcome
Take away the fear
Break away, break away
Kill the voice inside
Kill the light, kill the light

[Solo]

Walked through fields of war
Face the spineless one
I give my life, spirit aside
I will conquer this life
I will conquer this life
I will conquer this life
I will conquer this life
3. The Chains of Power (3:18)
Years of fighting is combat of war
Bring the fire straight to the core
Intense the damage with only single blow
Kill or be killed or summon your lord
I can be what you want be to be...
A product of war or weapon of choice!
Vanquish an army of one million man
Walk through the land of the weak and the dead

Conquer this ideology
All this blood will set me free
There's no time to contemplate
Settle this hate to devastate
All this pain I'm hired to create
Push the boundaries of the sane
Infrastructures laid to waste
Take no prisoners and penetrate

Bring me to hell... I can scream much louder!
The voice of freedom... slay the chains of power!
4. As Death Lingers (3:32)
A brand new day of steady darkness
Poisoned vows of deeper sadness
One can count the heroes lost, all gone... dead in the dust

Power... gods kiss and deadly embrace
Cowards... those who kill and bring the madness

Shame on the kings who wreak disorder
Freedom's death is getting closer
The smell of failure, we all fall in the hands of traitors
Can we decipher our enemies pillars?

As death lingers
Soulless we march on

As death lingers
It calls our name to the sun

As death lingers
Our fate burns at dawn

As death lingers
Heartless we carry on

I confess to my shrine
I don't care for the light
It betrayed me at sight
Can't you see what it does?
Manipulates for cause
I'll stand my ground for my trust

Sinister souls errupt
Bound deconstruct
All the aspects of what life costs
Turn this warm heart to frost
There's no signs of a time to stop... I'm lost

Crawling deeper into the pit
This abyss will swallow you quick
Stand strong, fierce to the wind
Fall down... face to the ground

Power... gods kiss and deadly embrace
Cowards... those who kill and bring the madness

As death lingers
Soulless we march on

As death lingers
It calls our name to the sun

As death lingers
Our fate burns at dawn

As death lingers
Heartless we carry on
5. Blood in Heaven (5:18)
Down to nothing
Weak, frail and broken
Wasting away before
My very eyes
I told you never to say
The things you kept within
The brothers in honour
This is forever

(I promise disloyalty to you)
We are soldiers of war
Lost in inside betrayal
(I sacrificed myself for you)
for the rise of kings and tyrants

There is no glory
There is no trusting hand
I will defend you to the very end
Even if my hands spill
Blood in heaven
(Heaven)

Your places to the skies
Wretched smell of death, demise
Lost an eye for the sinner's death
Desperate souls they never get back

[Solo]

Everything means nothing
When you lose the things that matter
Fading away, the dreams of tomorrow
Calling the words of survival
Calling the course of reprisal
Mothers and fathers
Sons or brothers

(I promise disloyalty to you)
We are soldiers of war
Lost in inside betrayal
(I sacrificed myself for you)
for the rise of kings and tyrants

There is no glory
There is no trusting hand
I will defend you
To the very end
Even if my hands
Spill blood in heaven
Blood in heaven
Blood in heaven
Spill my blood in heaven
6. To the Throne of Sorrow (4:52)
Chaos, disorder
Mathematics of our creation
Mistakes bring deceit
Acknowledgement of your demise
Transcend the strength
Future messenger of all that's dead
Quench a blind man's thirst
The list of curse reversed

Enter the glorious faith
In full shocking effect
All along this deadly river
Flowing through these veins

Worlds twist into convulsion
Suffocating myth arise
Shocked beliefs of slaves embedded
Reborn fear in man create

Onwards to the throne of sorrow
Bow down to the gods of war
Set forth to the throne of sorrow
Eradication, manipulation

Hurricanes of contradiction
Whirlwinds of dissolution

The waves come crashing down
Will you live or will you drown
Drown in a taste of your miserable life..

Set the hellhounds loose bring me the cold and stale heart
Of the ones taking me apart

Worlds twist into convulsion
Suffocating myth arise
Shocked beliefs of slaves embedded
Reborn fear in man create

Onwards to the throne of sorrow
Bow down to the gods of war
Set forth to the throne of sorrow
Eradication, manipulation

Hurricanes of contradiction
Whirlwinds of dissolution
7. Breathe to Dominate (4:02)
Respect my ways... this is my pride
Break my silence... fear my life
I know you want it... always earn your merit
You've reached the edge... broke down the pledge

Time after time I've challenged myself
My soul darkened with regret
Eclipsed by the things I dread
Witnessed by the skins I shed
No one wants war
No one wants war
But I'll take you there with one dead stare

No room to move... can't feel nothing
Sentenced to die... break free with me

Breath... breath to dominate
Fearless strike to un-create
Breathe... breath to dominate
Power feeds to annihilate

And I stand here in redemption
For all the things that bring salvation
Battered souls for resurrection

One step closer
To strike the deceiver
Sometimes I wonder
Nothing in this world can kill this hunger
I'll satisfy, intensify... this thirst that grows inside
Determined... determined my will to rise

Time after time I've challenged myself
My soul darkened with regret
Eclipsed by the things I dread
Witnessed by the skins I shed
No one wants war
No one wants war
But I'll take you there with one dead stare

Breath... breath to dominate
Fearless strike to un-create
Breathe... breath to dominate
Power feeds to annihilate

And I stand here in redemption
For all the things that bring salvation
Battered souls for resurrection

One step closer
To strike the deceiver
Sometimes i wonder
Nothing in this world can kill this hunger
In satisfy, intensify... this thirst that grows inside
Determind... determined my will to rise

Time after time I've challenged myself
My soul darkened with regret
Eclipsed by the things I dread
Witnessed by the skins I shed
No one wants war
No one wants war
But I'll take you there with one dead stare

Breath... breath to dominate
Fearless strike to un-create
Breathe... breath to dominate
Power feeds to annihilate
8. Tear Down the Kingdom (4:23)
Everything comes falling
Like the leafs fall from a trees natural progression
Everything comes falling
Like the rain falls when gods cry for our salvation

Ride through endless sin
To the mountains of despair
Break through all the things you couldn't do
Suffer inside, everyday living a lie
Cleansed by those feelings you try to deny

Everything comes falling
Like tears flow from a soul full of sorrow
Everything comes falling
Like blood drops from a bruised aching heart

Fly to the bludgeon sky
Look at terror's eyes
Embrace the full aura
That will consume your everything
Abandon your destiny to reach uncertainty
With nothing left to see you fade away

Gone... are all the feelings
That battle has just begun
Die before I fall...
My kingdom stands tall
Bleed... my fatal blade
The rupture has just commenced
Die before I fall...
My kingdom stands tall

Ride through endless sin
To the mountains of despair
Break through all the things you couldn't do
Suffer inside, everyday living a lie
Cleansed by those feelings you try to deny
9. The Vultures Are Watching (5:58)
Friend or traitor?
Sometimes I wonder
If these tears should turn to laughter
If your malice was from the start
Maybe you love to rub these wounds with salt

Cross my path in the weakest time
You turned your back in a blink of an eye
Aim my heart for target
This is something I shall never forget

War of words and war of trust
Bring the changes left to stay
Never doubt the meaning of hate
Imploding minds deaf to blind
Reaping havoc causing static
All the fools become systematic
Bring the walls down to the generic
You read the mind of the manic

Since time heals
I've regain the spirit to live
Wiser and smarter and better then ever
I run through the steps I find
I live to die as strangers say
Filled with hopes of a better day
Flesh of the burning, souls searching
This is my journey

You pray on me... the vultures are watching
You stay with me... the vultures are watching
You feed from me... the vultures are watching
You steal from me... the vultures are watching

Confrontation is bloodshed
First mistake was to under estimate
One life... one time
Destined to make it right

Crisis to bend all I stand for
March towards things I would die for
This is who I am, this soul will never end
This will be my last stand... this should will never end...
My last stand... it will never end!

They're watching...
