Shadows and Dust Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. In Shadows And Dust (2:46)
in shadows & dust... in shadows & dust...

as i walk through the valley of shadows & dust
no hope in the eyes of the lost
your hero nailed to the cross
we're animals in search for blood
never satiesfied, never gratified
until the day we die
i step into your life and take control

time stops the sky turns dark
never again shall you feel godlike
we're nothing divine
never again shall you feel godlike
emotions are swift like the winds
never again shall you feel godlike

in shadows & dust... in shadows & dust...

reflections of yourself
illusions made by your mind
realise we are nothing... but shadows & dust
2. Beyond Salvation (4:10)
i am beyond salvation
i am beyond redemption
i am beyond the ones you heal...you kill...

and i've entered the light
just to fall in darkness
you've taken it all from me...
and because of you i cease to exist
i've been forsaken
deep inside the core of my mind
i fall from heaven

[chorus]
i am beyond salvation
i am beyond redemption
i am beyond the ones you heal... you kill...
murder... murder... you've killed my soul
and now your searching for more

you burned me inside, you left me to die!
you tought it was over for me...
but i will rise again!

[chorus]
3. Illuminati (4:59)
the time has come to rage insanity
mortals beg to decive
illuminiati strive to control
the seeds of generations
no more opposition, no more free will
we shall suffer from this higher power

for ages we've been manipulated
all our existence in vein

solitude inside the intelligence
of man is forever

inside your mind we shall conquer all...
this time!

illuminati... knowledge from the sons of sin
illuminati... the world turns and hell burns

hell burns... hell burns... hell burns...

we feel like empty souls lost in the dust
with our shadows embracing the surface
4. Chronicles Of The Damned (3:14)
it is written in the book of sin
we shall die in vein
sacrificed for not believing
slaughtered in shame
we breath the poison and swallow the lies
to destroy the foundations we build

i can see what you see
my soul just disagrees
i can't feel or be... everything you want me to be
dicate you prophecies
i'm no slave to jealousy
i will die defending, the air that i breath...

down the path we go
no man's land to follow
feeble man emprisoned by imagery

no choice to obey
no choice to slay
no choice to fade away...

crippled idealogy, makes no sense for me
kill yourself for the... and the paradise you'll see...
5. Bound In Chains (3:24)
as you enter my kingdom
the blood flows, the stream grows
locked inside this cage...
my heart weeps for freedom

i'm bound in chains
i'm a prisoner of your hate
i'm bound in chains
for eternity there's no escape
i'm bound in chains
the winds have taken me... it's too late
i'm bound in chains
darkness takes all the love i create

the gates open wide, i look at the world outside
if i took one moment to cry
i would be denied

i crawl into the abyss
i taste the fruit of solitude
no one is there for me... foreverlasating sleep

whirlwind inside my head
confusion to know who i am
i beg for a chance to redeem
to take back my self esteem
6. Where The Enemy Sleeps... (5:20)
we stand in hell... inside the tombs of heaven
my way is your way... we play fire with fire

we fight to die, survive to kill
man of strenght, man of sin, man of courage
forever sorrow, no one left behind
we stand alone, until the last cry

i can't feel... my nerves have turned to steal
my emiotions... unreal, pull the trigger to kill
forgive me father... for i have sinned

beneath all innocence
my mind is covered in blood
i feel like i'm born again
without the heart i once left

save me!... save me!... for i am no more...

honour is everything i am
disconnected from reality... this is war...

beneath all innocence
my mind is covered in blood
i feel like i'm born again
wihtout the heart i once felt

we will hunt them down...
we will strike where the enemy sleeps

we stand in hell... inside the tombs of heaven
my way is your way... we play fire with fire
7. Centuries (Beneath The Dark Waters) (5:57)
destiny har proven time and time again
that our ways will deceive us
no matter how hard we try
we fail to realsie... we are so volotile
we are beings of no historical sense
we desecrate everything we achieve

never seen, never tried
never felt, never believed
all the things we value
all the things we love & hate
all the things we are and will not be...
and will not feel and will not see...

swallowed in hate beneath the dark waters

where is your paradise?

all i see is pain beyond pain...
no one will ever ackowledge their true faith
it's all lies written in blood
from this day forward we are blind

death comes calling, we start hidding
this is where you'll see the true strength of man
8. Face The Face Of War (5:10)
this time we went to far
this time we opend the scars
to feel destruction inside this worlds addiction
last dance for the new generation
beloved ones... virgins of war
neverseen the true colors of sufferance

forever... face the face of war
forever... we shall face the face of war
we shall not fall, we shall stand tall
in the midst of all this pain
we will face the face of war

'til the end of time, worlds will collide
people will die
and everyone you trust will turn on you
to save themselves from the devil's grip

stay on guard, make sure you don't drift away
prepare for battle... bloodbath of innocent man
guilty for taking life... for taking life!

corpse of dead man surround me
release me from this sanctuary

forever... face the face of war
forever... we shall face the face of war

we shall not fall, we shall stand tall
in the midst of all this pain
we will face the face of war
9. Years Of Enlightment / Decades In Darkness (5:15)
our souls carved in stone
withstand the test of time
testify the ancient ways
when all good will turn bad thy angels will fall

invade the putrid masses
intelligence to stupidity
increase the pressure within
no return from isolation
no chance to recuporate
we are lost in deceipt

years of enlightment for decades in darkness
we drown in time... behold the signs!

the storm arrives, we pray to die
forgotten and betrayed
life comes in full circle
you can't escape what is meant to be
without proving your true identity

invade the putrid masses
intelligence to stupidity
increase the pressure within
no return from isolation
no chance to recuporate
we are lost in deceipt

years of enlightment for decades in darkness
we drown in time... behold the signs!
