Master Control Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Wait
1. Fear Itself (4:27)
Into the madness, and back out of sight
Like ten thousand strong, we burn on through the night
An endless vision, carries us through life
The fear that breaks down all the rest
Dares not to doubt our might

A vein of violence, bleeds pulse into our veins
Always when the smoke is clear,
Our union still remains
We're opposition, oppressors of the norm
The fear that seems to flourish
Shall always be ignored

[Chorus:]
Fear, it tempts our lives
There's nothing to fear
It's just a lie
Fear, it's in yourself
There's nothing to fear
But fear itself

Hear the losers, their tears won't dry
The beggars and choosers, afraid to die
To last nine lives, but while we're here
We don't run or hide

[Repeat chorus]

In this life, there comes a time
When the fear around you, takes you off your stride
With two cold faces of low and high
Follow us, we'll help you decide
You'll never know if you never try

[Repeat chorus]
2. Eye of the Storm (4:18)
A tailored suit of terror
Rains from the sky
Made of us all
Thousands will die

Burning, surrounding, nowhere to hide
But they're looking for those
Who can't see the light, yeah

A vast cry of outrage
Raises its head
A little too late
Thousands are dead

Burning, surrounding, nowhere to hide
But they're looking for those
Who can't see the light, yeah

[Chorus:]
(in the eye) of the storm

If we don't act now, then actors we'll be
Playing the part of life's insanity

[Repeat chorus]

Burning, surrounding, nowhere to hide
But they're looking for those
Who can't see the light, again, & again & again

You better not ever, Get caught dead lying in the
Eye of the storm
3. Master Control (5:09)
When far futures calling and your needs at hand
I'll be your creation, with you I'm hand in hand
Since my automation I've learned to think for man
Now you're not able to shut down my master plan

Once you'd crowd around me, marvel young and old
our machine brings us peace, now we are one and bold
Who'd think that perhaps
your trust would soon collapse?
Life and death as a whole under machines control

[Pre chorus]
Tell me children, It's I who lead your lives
Tell me children, I am supreme device
Tell me children, I will outlive your cries
Tell me children, I'm whose voice never dies

Minds of known construction please unite as one
Or taste our own destruction
in the hands of what we've done
While you point and blame
at who first turned my switch
I plan feats of terror to unthread you stitch by stitch

[Repeat pre chorus]

[Chorus]
Power and depth, infinity
Master Control, machinery
Complex and endless, infinity
Master Control, machinery
Pulse of pure metal, infinity
Master Control, machinery

Now retaliation, we are face to face
I submerge each nation, reveal my newest race
The thrill of revelation, my arms out of hand
And all your sins remembered to test machine and man

[Repeat pre chorus]

[Repeat chorus]

Upon the day of our people are weak and astray
This selfish destiny with man to lead the way
When far futures calling mankind can't play the fool
Don't leave our distant children
a world unfair and cruel

[Repeat Pre chorus]

[Repeat Chorus]
4. Kill the King (Rainbow cover) (3:46)
[Blackmore, Dio, Powell (Elite Music)]

Danger, danger - Queen's about to kill
There's a stranger, stranger - and life about to spill
Oh no! Move me out of harm
I need a spell and a charm, Fly like the wind
I'm a pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

Kill the King, tear him down
Kill the King, strike him down

Treason, treason - The spectre looms again
treason, reason - The realm is safe and then
Oh no! Move away from harm
I need a spell and a charm, Fly like the rainbow
I'm a pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

Kill the King, tear him down
Kill the King, go take his crown - down

Kill the King
He'll rule no more, strike him dead
The people roar
Kill the King, take his head
Down, down, down, down
Oh kill, oh kill, oh kill, oh - oh
5. Soldiers' Fortune (3:03)
In vain it's come down, the sin of selfish gain
It's dropped a binding sheet of action to the brain
With untamed violence, we move for powers lair
Black magic's practice full in spirit and in prayer
I see this going down, four corners of this world
I'm gonna end it all, towards glory I'll be hurled

[Chorus:]
I'll burn the evil and the crown it wears
A fire bright to cleanse the fear it bears
And in return the only price I ask is clear
A eulogy for all the battles I will bear

I'll face terror of war being penned
And swing a mighty sword of world without end
And when the evil laughs at battle with it's might
The words I speak will drown
their courage and their flight

[Chorus]
I've taken to the flight of glory
I'll turn new pages of your story
The power of my passions bright
Evil bows done to one's tremendous height

I'm marching out, the leader in command
I have the men behind to corners of the land
Infesting world crime, inflicting without care
Carved in my arms the victories I wear

[Chorus]
I'll burn the evil and the crown it wears
A fire bright to cleanse the fear it bears
And in return the only price I ask is clear
A eulogy for all the battles I will bear

I've gained the eulogy forever more
A prize of battle and the reign endured
6. Feel the Blade (3:34)
Looks in the mirror, thinks he knows what he sees
Hides the truth from himself
Not from you or me, check it

Acts like a dog, always take the easy way
You can't live forever without responsibility

Always in the action
And he knows which ways to go
The best way to break him is to break down his road

[Chorus:]
Feel the blade, he's living a lie
feel the blade, he's wondering why
Feel the blade, why can't he see
That he'll feel the blade from me

His dreams have been ended, cut him down to size
His dreams have been ended, maybe he'll realize

He thought he'd live forever, for all eternity
He can't lead anything, nothing comes for free

[Repeat chorus]

[Repeat chorus]

Feel the Blade
7. Broken Wasteland (4:15)
Rip it up, tear it down, rip it up
Rip it up, tear it down, rip it up
Rip it up, tear it down, rip it up
Rip it up, tear it down, rip it up

Oh, sit here, and watch our cities
Grow more polluted every day
It's a problem we all must face
C'mon, it's time to break the waste

Rip it up, tear it down, rip it up
Rip it up, tear it down, rip it up

Oh stand up, and name the nameless
We've had enough of their kind
What once came up is now coming down
Crushed, smashed, leveled to the ground

[Chorus:]
Broken wasteland rules no more
Broken wasteland watch it fall
Broken wasteland rules no more
Broken wasteland shocked and torn

Gone forever to concrete beast
Gone forever purveyors of peace
Gone forever the forgotten few
Gone forever time to start anew

Rip it up, tear it down, rip it up
Rip it up, tear it down, rip it up
Rip it up, tear it down, rip it up
Rip it up, tear it down, rip it up

Oh hold on tight, and face the future
We've left all of the crap behind
If we don't stop starting the game
We'll have no one but ourselves to blame

[Repeat chorus]
8. Rapture (4:28)
Immense and whole the power
of a dream that has come true
Her strength held back the hours
And spread shadow on the truth
Destiny's daughter, her fatal beauty speaks
Now I taste the experience of her lies and self deceit

[Chorus:]
(Rapture) Beginning of the end
(Rapture) Be ready to defend

In the flesh commanding passion,
Glaring lust into my eyes
I'm blinded by her spirit, not yet knowing her disguise
And I know that deep inside,
When my trust becomes a fact
I'll pull out, she'll pull away And stab me in the back

[Repeat chorus]

Commanding with action
Like a fever driven molten spike
I drill her till her skin can crawl
Then she sets me up for the fall

[Repeat chorus]
Immense and whole power
of a dream that has come true
Overwhelming, never ending
Brings the fever out in you
Away you'll wail, until you're pail
With a craze of passion flow
When it ends it all depends
get in or you'll never know

[Repeat chorus]
9. Suspicion (3:31)
Do you suspect your brother, was something done to you?
We all trust one another, we know this isn't true
For the people's minds are cluttered
With the word we call dislike
When our backs are turned in friendship
Our brothers they will strike

Across the seas in another land
Fists are clenched in every hand
Step across the boundary line
My choice to live is no longer mine
Suspicion drill inside their heads
And the will to live is what we dread
Man's trust has surely died
On the sword's point suspicion glides

[Chorus:]
Can you control the feeling that you hold
The others you neglect, feel your own suspect

Between two fires we collect our thoughts
Are we all just liars? And our truth is only bought
For it's suspicion that turns it's back on you
Suspicion in the masses down to the very few
You cannot trust your brother
For the fear he's after you

[Chorus]

Between two fires we collect our thoughts
Are we all just liars? And our truth is only bought
For it's suspicion that turns it's back on you
They close their eyes to their own demise
And pray that it's not true
10. Fallout (5:44)
I tried to escape, fallout
All around me, yeah

The blast of light, burning day and night
It would last through time,
with an unseen spark of life

[Chorus:]
Man and his infamy, man will no longer be
Fallout is his breath of air
The stars above glance fateful stares

Looking back I'd wonder why
No one helped, they'd just stand by
They need to look the other way
To breed the fallout, the final day

The blast of light, a laugh at our fright
The fallout ending time, the fallout far and wide

[Chorus]
Man and his infamy, man will no longer be
Speak of man in the past tense
Speak of man who made no sense

Who believes in leadership?
Armed to the teeth, he's well equipped
Well bestowed since man's birth
Hell below, hell on earth

Come and see the show,
said the stars as they gazed below
See the fallout strip away their future and all their
yesterdays

[Chorus:]
Man and his infamy, man will no longer be
Fallout is their breath of air
The stars above watch from their lair

The blast of light, burning day and night
It would last trough time
with an unseen spark of life

[Chorus:]
Man and his infamy, man will no longer be
Fallout is his breath of air
The stars above glance fateful stares

Who on earth wants to hear a rhyme?
Of the end of birth, of the end of time
Hear these words, don't wonder why
