Playground of the Damned Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level
1. Jackhammer (5:27)
I come from the place that you fear
To reap life and soul
Though centuries old I'm still here
King of the unknown

Angel fallen
Reaper calling
Hear my warning
I am coming

I come for the souls that are lost
And trapped in the void
Hauntings in the palace of thought
That teach and destroy

Angel fallen
Reaper calling
Hear my warning
Jack is coming

Angel fallen
Reaper calling
Hear my warning
I am coming
2. Into the Maelstrom (4:47)
Drawn into the maelström
Brothers three lost at sea
A cyclone of mayhem
Spiraling to the deep

The waters of bedlam
Scream to thee deafening
Hopeless situation
Puppets on a string

Inside of the maelström
Waves like ice, black as night
A whirlpool of chaos
Triton's eye opens wide

Descent into madness
Most have died, one survived
From out of the abyss
I escaped alive
3. Playground of the Damned (4:47)
See from you shadows run away
You shall live still beyond the grave
See this world of death and decay
Soon mankind will be forced to change

In the light of the moon
Trust in the muse
Feed the fire light the fire
It's up to you

See man seems to have lost his way
You can be the world's saving grace
See the demons of earth at play
You can send them back to the grave

In the light of the moon
Trust in the muse
Feed the fire light the fire
It's up to you

In the light of the moon
Trust in the muse
Feed the fire light the fire
It's up to you
4. Grindhouse (7:51)
Welcome to the mind of a madman
Welcome to the house of pain
Inside this nightmare of slaughter
The reaper always knows your name

Welcome to the chamber of horror
Welcome to the psychic maze
Evisceration and torture
The doctor's in come out and play

Victims before my eyes
The film brings back to life
The evil genius of the grindhouse

The planet terrorized
When living dead arise
No one of death proof
In the grindhouse

Welcome to the circus of chaos
Welcome to the freak parade
By the gun and by machete
Send the dead back to the grave

Victims before my eyes
The film brings back to life
The evil genius of the grindhouse

The planet terrorized
When living dead arise
No one of death proof
In the grindhouse
5. Abattoir de la Mort (7:51)
Hear the thunder and roar of the crowd each night
Drawing magik from the soul
In the circle of friends the lightning strikes
Into the labyrinth we shall go

We shall emerge from the flames

In the padded chamber of the lab
Built upon our blood and bones
We have sacrificed upon the slab
Opened gates to the unknown

We shall emerge from the flames

We have come from the negative veils
To wield the steel refrain
In the chambers the Old Ones are hailed
The slaughterhouse of pain

Death can be the life of thee
Rise above the flames

From the taste of the blood in my mouth
I know that I am evil
Dark the deeds we have done in this house
L'abattoir de Mort

Death can be the life of thee
Rise above the flames

In this grindhouse of slaughter and sound
We reach for glory's light
Spill the blood upon Crom's holy mound
Spin tales of honor's fight

You can see the majesty
Look inside the flames

Morbid dreams mystic tomes of the gods
The muses are to blame
In the quest for the chord that was lost
One tends to go insane

Kill us and we'll rise again
Out of the hell hence we came
We shall emerge from the flames

From the taste of the blood in my mouth
I know that I am evil
Dark the deeds we have done in this house
L'abattoir de Mort
6. Fire of Ashurbanipal (4:41)
I've followed the ancient rhyme
Across distant lands
A quest that has led my life
To these desert sands
Seeking the fire of the damned

This jewel
Artifact of the past
This orb of Cthul
I have found at last

A city lost in the sand
From forgotten times
Guarded by unearthly hands
A jewel red as fire

Fire of Asshurbanipal
Hides behind black temple walls
All who dare touch this gem fall
Under the black demon's claws

This jewel
Artifact of the past
This orb of Cthul
I have found at last

I dare not disturb
This breath would be my last
Heed what you've heard
Or lose your soul to the past
7. Brethren of the Hammer (5:03)
Brethren of the hammer band together
United metal brothers
Stand and fight as one
True to the oath of blood

Never run away
Look death in the face
Hold onto your faith

Magik, it's more than science, Crystal Logic
We stand defiant with the
Banners raised on high
Press on never say die

Now's the time for us to unite
We're the brethren of the hammer
Feed the fire, raise the horns on high
Bring down the thunder of the gods

Never run away
Look hell in the face
Hold onto your faith

Music, the strongest magik learn to use it
Bathe your soul and you can
Cast the spell of light
Sing to the gods this night

Now's the time for us to unite
We're the brethren of the hammer
Feed the fire, raise the horns on high
Bring down the thunder of the gods

Now's the time for us to unite
We're the brethren of the hammer
Feed the fire, raise the horns on high
Bring down the thunder of the gods

Never run away
Look death in the face
Hold onto your faith

Never run away
Look hell in the face
Hold onto your faith
8. Art of War (7:16)
The winds of hell are blowing strong again
The bodies still are burning, turn to ashen death
Technology has made it easier
To sacrifice our brothers of the earth
We'll have to pay the piper if we are to survive
The grapes of wrath are dying on the vine
Heed the rising of the crimson tides
We've turned the art of war to genocide

No honor left no glory face to face
Unlike the time of ancients, of Odin and the fates
Inside our hearts we still believe the lore
The oath unto the hammer and the sword
Still hosted in Valhalla the brave behind the doors
Await the final call upon the horn
come the crimson tides to every shore
So teach your children well the art of war

The Northern lights are dancing cross the sky
Above the fields of honor where braver men have died
The Valkyries across Midgard still soar
To claim the souls of valor true to Thor
Like Branwynne and the Yeth hounds who fly from Shining Tor
If not for magik we are nevermore
So hearken to the wisdom of the Norns
So teach your children well the art of war
