Back from Beyond Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. The Ancient Ones (1:02)
2. As We Wait to Die (3:32)
From the break of d awn and deep into the night
The bloodshed rages on
Banished to a world of hatred
Defending honor's what we know
Survival plan uncalculated
The risks severely high
Erratic thoughts cannot prepare
As we wait to die

Fierce strikes all around
Barrage of explosions the crippling sounds
Screams of horror fill the air
Carnage and mayhem no one will care

Stifled from catastrophe
The body cold and numb
Everywhere's an enemy
There's no place left to run
Shackled to this misery
Punished we know not why
Begging for an end to come
As we wait to die

Anger and despair calling from the grave
Lives have been lost that could have been saved
Fists are clenched with fury lashing at the sky
Tears of the fallen hollow echoes of their cries

From the break of dawn and deep into the night
This struggle never ends
Lost within these lands of hatred
And the message that it sends
Our purpose has gone unfulfilled
Endangered are the lives
The greatest powers turn their head
As we wait to die
3. Ascension of the Deceased (3:19)
Waking from an extensive sleep
An eerie feeling cold it looms
Nothing is really what it seems
Alone the fear it now consumes

What is seen and heard it begins to scare
Mutilated bodies, blood and gore, a living nightmare
Looking in the distance could it be the saving grace
What has been witnessed changed the human race

Ascension of the deceased

Fighting for survival
Instincts now arise
Mass loss of humanity
The end to all mankind

What is seen and heard it begins to scare
Mutilated bodies, blood and gore, a living nightmare
Looking in the distance, could it be the saving grace
What has been witnessed changed the human race

Ascension of the deceased

Mindless animated corpse
Rise of the inhumane
Quest for flesh, no mercy
Driving them insane
Disembodied spirits
Outnumbered, overrun
Phantoms of the living
Extinction crisis has begun

Ascension of the deceased

What is seen and heard it begins to scare
Mutilated bodies, blood and gore, a living nightmare
Looking in the distance, could it be the saving grace
What has been witnessed changed the human race
4. Hunter's Blood (3:21)
Stained is the kindred's soil
Media reaper, lust the gore
Kept under glass to never question
Paid off by the hounds of war
Silence must never be broken
Your dreams are all but lost
Carry the corpse of freedom
Demise at all cost

Our own killing fields, scapegoats taken of life
Enshroud in mystery, deaf ears fall on the blind
Stalked target, a causality, swarm for the hunter's blood

Numb to murder unjustified
Vultures circle the mass grave
Inhale the stench of the dead future
Unworthy to be saved
Crushed by the fist of vengeance
Conflicts of power cannot be won
Retaliation in disguise
The massacre has begun

Our own killing fields, scapegoats taken of life
Enshroud in mystery, deaf ears fall on the blind
Stalked target, a causality, swarm for the hunter's blood

Sacrifice from above
Desolating ghost machines
Drones set out for the kill
Eradication doom from the skies
Bringers of mortality
Condemned absent judgment
Humanity led astray
Liberty shattered prepare for revolt

Our own killing fields, scapegoats taken of life
Enshroud in mystery, deaf ears fall on the blind
Stalked target, a causality, swarm for the hunter's blood
The blood of the hunted
5. Darkness Fell (2:59)
Lockdown, the system has failed
No concern for impending repercussion
Crippled government unstable to sway
Leaders divided, unwilling to devise
Plans of intent to save a nation in decline
Motion to direct

Bankrupt in denial, spitting venomous lies
No one held to task, heading for disaster
A country in the black, poor is just a word
There's no relief in sight as darkness fell

The calls to impeach these powers that be
Internal suicide what else don't we know
Deceitful to the masses dishonest clandestine
Defaulting for our weakness impoverished we've become

Bankrupt in denial, spitting venomous lies
No one held to task, heading for disaster
A country in the black, poor is just a word
There's no relief in sight as darkness fell

Convention of the senate, lawless union the assembly
Broken council has fallen, convocation to deflect
Converging on a hill in the chambers of stupidity
Constitution torn to shreds, the people now asunder
Attribute to the bribes what money cannot buy
Society unhinged pray there won't be all out war!

Bankrupt in denial, spitting venomous lies
No one held to task, heading for disaster
A country in the black, poor is just a word
There's no relief in sight depleted and drained
Authority deformed, paralyzed regime
Bureaucracy impaired as darkness fell
6. False Revelation (3:55)
The truth of man it is untold
Since the beginning of time
To evolve from nothing
Creation divine
Find ourselves in constant question
What is known it makes no sense
They say the body has a soul
That can never die

Following tales of apples and snakes
Claims written and doctored through time
Salvation is at stake, in doctrine a testament
Confirmation of the golden shrine
Penance through prayers, to clear the sins of mankind

People fear in their beliefs, the idols that are praised
Taught to live by the book and words will show them the way
And by the seventh day all was made

Following tales of apples and snakes
Claims written and doctored through time
Salvation is at stake, in doctrine a testament
Confirmation of the golden shrine
Penance through prayers, to clear the sins of mankind

Promises through worship
Damnation cast out
The body and the blood
And still we're disavowed
Warnings of the impending wrath
Like that of the worldwide flood and plague

The offering of tides, helping guilt slip by
A stranglehold on faith, as you kneel and pray
Does this deter the end? Or is it all just pretend?
No afterlife has been shown
With all this, what do we really know?

Feelings of peace, tranquility, blinding light
Revelations of nothing

Following tales of apples and snakes
Claims written and doctored through time
Salvation is at stake, in doctrine a testament
Confirmation of the golden shrine
Penance through prayers, to clear the sins of mankind
7. Succumb to Rapture (3:33)
The end has come to see with Armageddon drawing near
Millions fall to their knees, fools begging for salvation
Why don't they open their eyes
And realize no one will save them?
Lost revelation of lies unanswered is their plead to live

Blindly they followed false faith, the time of judgment waits
The flock's been laid to pasture, you will succumb to rapture

Hatred rising with destruction of man
Chaos rampant no affirmative plan
Only the rich find a way to survive
The poor and desolate surely will die

Overactive minds will think
Destined for extinction
Within the written passages
Invoke the master plan

Who will answer your prayers, when all is said and done?
Arms outstretched to the sky, embrace the days of darkness

The end has come to see with Armageddon drawing near
Millions fall to their knees, fools begging for salvation
They never opened their eyes and now they won't be saved
We're meeting our demise, the world is engulfed in flames

Blindly they followed false faith, the time of judgment waits
The flock's been laid to pasture, you will succumb to rapture
8. Remnants of Hatred (2:29)
In the deepest places of the mind
It cannot hide, labeled insane
Thoughts of grandeur the psycho kind
Visions of murder that turns real
Watching frantic as you sleep
No one will ever hear the screams
Schizophrenic but who cares
Delusions steal the wakened state
Hedonistic in every conceived way

On the hunt looking for prey
Thirst to kill completely deranged
Without care destroyer of lives
Remnants of hatred reborn from inside

The thrill to see victims in pain
Absorb the lust that they obtain
Domination as your life is drained
Control of power comfort bleeds
Shackled entombed by this disease
The media make them out to be like kings

On the hunt looking for prey
Thirst to kill completely deranged
Without care, destroyer of lives
Remnants of hatred reborn from inside

Dismantle, desolation, ravages of devastation
Destroy, consume, animal instincts from the womb
Confusion, erase, extirpate without a trace
Abolished, suppressed, captured and now put to death

On the hunt looking for prey
Thirst to kill completely deranged
Without care, destroyer of lives
Remnants of hatred reborn from inside
9. Shield of the Son (3:51)
The quest to conquer a feat so divine
Raiding in madness a sickness entwined
To rule in blood and all it defies
Attack by land and sea under darkened skies
Within the shadows are liars in wait
Commanding with fury pillage with hate
Nowhere to hide, slaughter has begun
Unprotected by the shield of the son

Embracing honor pleasing their lord
Bring forth treasures, the richest of gold's
No remorse merciless to their cries
Obliterating extinction by fire
Extermination overthrow of the weak
Eradicating impending future is bleak
Vengeance ascending, the wicked has won
Unguarded by the shield of the son

Swing of the axe, slash of the blade
Convictions of judgment the power embraced
Destruction with force, pariah defaced
Erase from existence for choosing their faith

Devastation, mayhem, despair
Decimation of the king's lair
Out of the darkness fears come to life
Skirmish unveiled blitzkrieg arise
Onslaught assault the breaking of tides
Bloodshed a crusade ripples in time
History shows time and again
Those filled with greed meet a violent end

Shield of the son
10. The Evil Within (3:34)
On the loose, lunatic
Contorted mind, victims in search to find
Embrace this wicked, malevolent
Eternal agony, nightmare of wretchedness
Unsedated, scavenger of torment
Time to feed, the voices are controlling me

Hell no to mercy, no end to this pain
When blood isn't enough to satisfy the taste
Denying all that is sacred, compelled to betrayal
Septic thoughts give into temptation, it is the killing hour

On the loose, lunatic
Contorted mind, victims in search to find
Embrace this wicked, malevolent
Eternal agony, nightmare of wretchedness
Unsedated, scavenger of torment
Time to feed, the voices are controlling me

Deep in the eyes of madness
Vision forever stained
There's no use in running
But I'm down for the chase
Screams fill the hatred, giving life to the fiend
Taking in your terror before soul devouring

It's time to die (suffer)
You're caught in the fucking web of death (suffer)
A purgatory of misery infernal abyss (suffer)
No one can hear the cries of pain (suffer)
As daylight draws near, feel life fade (suffer)
This shattered tomb shall be your grave

On the loose, lunatic
contorted mind, victims in search of fiend
Embrace this wicked, malevolent
Eternal agony, nightmare of wretchedness
Unsedated, scavenger of torment
Time to feed, the voices are controlling me
11. Sands of Time (2:42)
Republic tyranny, in a time long since past
Arose a power, fierce, engaged to overthrow
Within one man, born, his destiny to lead
Absent fear, dominant, his strength from the gods

Revenge set forth the goal, Warriors free from slaves
Unshackled from control, dictatorship to be seized
Rebels oppressed no more, determined to be free
Shadow of death, to meet the bitter end
Legacy of legends, paths have been entwined
Empires are left shattered, in the lost sands of time

Defeating legions, carnage in the wake
Controlling victory thousands fall from ranks
Tacticians plotting, decipher every move that's made
Apostasy unbound in the war of the damned

Revenge set forth the goal, warriors free from slaves
Unshackled from control, dictatorship to be seized
Rebels oppressed no more, determined to be free
Shadow of death, to meet the bitter end
Legacy of legends, paths have been entwined
Empires are left shattered, in the lost sands of time

Gods of the arena, vengeance since enslaved
Battleground the butchering, armies of mass graves
Enemies of honor, wolves are at the gates
Acts of decimation, the spoils of their fates

Revenge set forth the goal, warriors free from slaves
Unshackled from control, dictatorship to be seized
Rebels oppressed no more, determined to be free
Shadow of death, to meet the bitter end
Legacy of legends, paths have been entwined
Empires are left shattered, in the lost sands of time
12. Beast with Vengeance (3:16)
Look deep into these crazed filled eyes
Bloodshot and filled with rage and hate
Damned and cursed long since birth
Body bound, confined to chains
Anxiously they wait for me to die
But not of the human kind...

Immersed into flesh, the mental scars awaken
Metamorphosis suppressed and now it must dominate
Arise from the shadows, the brutal beast with vengeance
A slave to the curse, bringer of all man's demise

Destroying all within its grasp
Blood foamed dripping from the teeth
To recreate all in its image
Or leave all to be extinct

Immersed into flesh, the mental scars awaken
Metamorphosis suppressed and now it must dominate
Arise from the shadows, the brutal beast with vengeance
A slave to the curse, bringer of all man's demise

What could kill this abomination?
An atrocity in creature form
Species survived through generations
Thriving on human blood
This entity must be erased
Cast out from existence
The only means....Riddled with silver

Immersed into flesh, the mental scars awaken
Metamorphosis suppressed and now it must dominate
Arise from the shadows, the brutal beast with vengeance
A slave to the curse, bringer of all man's demise

Hail the wolf
13. Back from Beyond (4:36)
Within these walls of madness
Piercing screams can be heard
That which has been lying dormant
Has risen back to life
Torment enslaves the masses
Malevolence through hate
Revenging those once scorned
Sealing of their fates

Buried and forgotten
Never to return
Havoc has been reawakened
Back from beyond

Dark seed abomination
Animosity unleashing pain
Witness horror disguised
Loathing all hostile contained
The scriptures prophesied
Aligning of the path
Uncaging rabid beast
The visions of their wrath

Buried and forgotten
Never to return
Havoc has been reawakened
Back from beyond

Back...Damnation unfolds
From...Where no light is cast
Beyond...Faded to obscurity

Creation unshackled alive the spirit
Witness second coming divine decree
Condemned to the shadows
Damned to be reborn
Hail the promise tyrants of death
Tyrants of death
The masses will crumble
Under remains of defeat
Within these walls of madness
Piercing screams have been heard
That which was dormant
Is now back to life
Torment enslaves the masses
Malevolence through hate
Revenging those once scorned
Sealed are their fates

Buried and forgotten
Never to return
Havoc has been reawakened
Back from beyond
14. Honor the Fallen (3:16)
Hail the valor, the sacrifice was made
Only the dead have seen the true end
A legacy built by years of memories
Suffering so tragic to always remind

The shock of this is so unreal
To mourn this loss would be unjust
We celebrate the inspiration that was given
To always honor the fallen

All you created will always live on
Those impacted would never have been
Force of essence will never be destroyed
Even though sadness flows deep inside

The final vision in exile
The thought so hard to believe
Pay back the praise for all the years
Your cult built to the extreme
Disciple gone but not forgotten
Your bloodline never will cease

The shock of this is so unreal
To mourn this loss would be unjust
We celebrate the inspiration that was given
To always honor the fallen

To forever rule in blood
Prepare for the guardian of death
In the equinox of the abyss
At sunrise you shall sleep
