LMO Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Cleansed By Fire (10:37)
Oremus, oremus, oremus pro paganis
In mortem, in mortem agnoscant veritatem

A manifesto's been declared,
the witches hammer to be heard
by those who practise heresy,
those who would change in secrecy.
You have been warned, time is to regret.

It is the inquisitions law
to sort them out if they're not pure.
It's not allowed another will.
Those sorcerers, who pretend to heal,
you will confess to their reign of fear.

Make them believe, convert the pagans.
The devils feast - burn them!
Make them believe, convert the pagans,
cleansed by fire

He was a righteous, honoured man,
the mayor of a german town.
He was notorious on his own,
as hunter of the witches known.
He would not rest 'till his duty's done.

Make them believe, convert the pagans.
The devils feast - burn them!
Make them believe, convert the pagans,
cleansed by fire

She was the widow of a priest,
courageous, friendly, always pleased.
She tried to help, to ease the pain
of all the tortured ones, in vain.
She was accused and died by the sword.

Cleansed by fire, they'll be ...
2. Scapegoat (7:07)
It was back in the 16th century
when enlightenment was still elementary.
People lived with their superstition,
death was all around.

War and black death. War and black death.

And when the fruits would perish,
harvest was dried and withered.
And then the children died,
the pestilence, the plague.

War and black death. War and black death.

Madness ist everywhere, a real hysteria.
Thousands would lose their lives,
burned by that mob alive.

She's just a scapegoat
(in darkness they will dwell)
create a true world of hell.

'cause the church overpowered superior,
ruled the people's minds with sheer terror,
found a scapegoat for real everything
that scared them in their lives.

War and black death. War and black death.

Scared by powers of nature
ignorance would have made you
fear those who knew 'bout healing,
far away from god.
3. The Devil's Bride (6:11)
I've seen her fly by night
the devil at her side.
They cursed and swore us hell and disaster.
Beware, my friends, they're coming out to get you.

Sorcery she denied
but then she made me blind.
She blew my eyes and made them all blurry,
then I could run, I've felt her depravity.

Magic powder stew, poison in the brew.

She'll bring us down, the river falls dry,
the kids become ill, the cattle will die.
I've seen her, I swear, she danced at his side.

Tonight she'll be the devil's bride
Tonight, tonight, the devil's bride

I've seen her fly by night
the devil at her side.
They cursed and swore us hell and disaster.
Beware, my friends, they're coming out to get you.

Her master at her side, she's the devil's bride.

She'll bring us down, the river falls dry,
the kids become ill, the cattle will die.
I've seen her, I swear, she danced at his side.

Tonight she'll be the devil's bride
Tonight, tonight, the devil's bride
4. Lament (6:20)
Sitting in the dark,
in the tower's blackest hole.
In the dungeon's darkness,
wounded in the flesh and soul.

What have I done wrong
that they treat me all so bad?
All have left me now,
I had trust, now just regret.

Blowing in the wind,
my life's like dust in the wind.
Only my tears are left for my lament.

Waiting for an end,
for a terrifying end.
All the torture's pain,
all the laughter and the shame.

I thought she was my friend,
she betrayed me with her lie.
Though I brought her flowers,
now I'll always wonder why.

Lost, there is no hope left, this will be my end,
my hours, they have been counted now.
Lost, though I'm innocent, they all want me dead.
I'm target for their hate, I know.

Say, where is my saviour? No way I could be saved here.
Days are drowning in tears, so say, where is my saviour?
5. Oremus (2:17)
(In the late 16th century
the so called "witches mania"
which frightening magnitudes
thousands were executed
under inhuman conditions
mostly burned alive in this take...)
6. Witches' Judge (6:15)
"So confess that you're a sorceress!"
"I have never done these sins!"
"We will send you to the torture!"
"I have never done these sins!"

In the witches' tower we have chained her to the wall,
send her to the torture, her resistance was just small.
Pull the clamps much tighter and then put her to the rack!
Yes, my humble torturer, you are free to break her back.

Now you'll be sentenced by the witches' judge.
Expect no mercy, you'll be sentenced by the witches' judge.

In my house of justice rules the power of the law,
my court makes no difference between famous, rich or poor.
I am pleading guilty to the laws of church and god,
so your judgement will be decapitation by the sword.

Now you'll be sentenced by the witches' judge.
Expect no mercy, you'll be sentenced by the witches' judge.

You gotta die, so that your soul is cleansed right
from all your sins now, so that the lord will take
your sacrifice (your sacrifice)
I watch you die, so your soul may rise up
into heaven and all your blood will be
my sacrifice (my sacrifice)
7. Eye For An Eye (9:49)
I've seen her blood flow, as her head fell on the ground
and her sigh, I won't forget that sound.
The people around, they were scared and they all cried,
as they all bore witness how she died.

An eye for an eye and all the tears she'd cried.
It's an eye for any eye, she comes to me, now I must die
(tonight)

And then overnight it turned out that all was wrong,
that my sentence was a crying shame.
I realise now that all I believed was false,
all my errors, I'm the one to blame.

An eye for an eye and all the tears she'd cried.
It's an eye for any eye, she comes to me, now I must die
(tonight)

"Madness overcomes, you'll regret what you have done.
Haunted by my ghost, there's no place to hide, my dear,
your life, my dear, is mine I swear!"

She's coming back to take my life,
I'm sorry for all I have done to you, oh yeah...
She's coming, she's coming to take my life,
She's coming, she's coming, she takes my life.

He seemed far away, like he was focused on inside,
who could have ever read what's on his mind.
It seemed like he felt all the guilt he made alive,
a too heavy burden for his life.

An eye for an eye and all the tears she'd cried.
It's an eye for any eye, she comes to me, now I must die
(tonight)
8. Afterglow (6:03)
After so many centuries
it is not forgotten what has happened,
all this mass hysteria, all that phobia.
And what has changed about it,
are we now immune against this madness?
So much think the same, I would guess.

I can still recall the echoes of the cries
and the traces all around
fade in the afterglow.

Behind the fire's light
wait the shadows of the night,
fade in the afterglow.

Why is it that we always
try to make somebody pay for misfortune,
for our fears and for all our mistakes, we
always forget the victims,
all the legions we have sent to the slaughter,
as if life means nothing we still play god.

I can still recall the echoes of the cries
and the traces all around
fade in the afterglow.

Behind the fire's light
wait the shadows of the night,
fade in the afterglow.

Out of the darkness, back into the light
it seems we still feel their pain
after so many years there's still a memory,
maybe they died not in vain.

There, behind the fire's light...
9. Straight To Hell (Orchestra Version) (4:05)
Hear me, what I've got to say
I know you and get you anyway
See me walking by your side
I'm with you forever day and night

Hey man, I'm your worst choice
You don't know, I want it so
Hey man, I'm your dark voice
You don't know where we will go
Straight to hell, straight to hell

Listen, listen what you say
I've taught you and you have learned your lesson
Feel me, when you feel the pain
I want you and I am going to get you.. anyway

I look like the easy way
The truth to be found
I seem to be innocent
I'm coming around, I'm coming around

I'm your worst choice
You don't know, I want it so
Hey man, I'm your dark voice
You don't know where we will go
You don't know where we will go
Straight to hell, straight to hell

I look like the easy way
The truth to be found
I seem to be innocent
I'm coming around, I'm coming around

I'm your worst choice
You don't know, I want it so
Hey man, I'm your dark voice
You don't know where we will go
You don't know where we will go
Straight to hell, straight to hell
10. One More Time (Orchestra Version) (6:51)
Good or bad, which side are you on
Make your choice
I hope you sleep well
Why can´t you see
It´s only a few that make profit here
Lose your voice while they sell you fear

One day too late
You´re racing with the devil
My choice, your choice
We stand... our backs against the wall

Rich or poor, will you sell your soul
Make this choice or nothing at all
No one will feed you
You or me, we go where the money goes
Friend or foe, no one´s getting close

Money - godlike, religion and restrictions
Madness, no more
Remember right, create the world

One more time again it´s built on sand
And one more time again ignore it
One more time again it slips through our hands
One more time again the rim of hell, you see it well

Deaf, dumb and blind, you´re not concerned

One day too late
We ride the wings of death
My choice, your choice
We stand...our backs against the wall

One more time again it´s built on sand
And one more time again ignore it
One more time again it slips through our hands
One more time again the rim of hell, you see it well
