...and Death said live Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DeftCrow
1. The Awakening (0:55)
[Instrumental]
2. Departure (5:44)
You paid the price for my desires
To satisfy my burning lust
I felt temptation taking over me
I lost control of what was real
I am aware of other times
It's like a dream of another game
I thought that this would never end
Pull me out from this dark country of the dead

I will never forgive you
For all the things you made me do
I will never forget you
For all the things you put me through

I can never forget you
I can sense your body next to mine
I will never lose you
You will always be here with me
I can live, but you can't die
Closed like the love that bound me

You can't touch, you can't feel
The wounds i closed will never heal
You can't hear, you can't speak
But still i hear you calling me
I can smell, i can taste
And twine your arms around me
I didn't mean to kill you
I only tried to hurt you
But once i saw all your bloody tears
I laid you down and let you die
3. I Will Return (4:29)
Three thousand years of sleep, but now i'm
Awake
The moments were divided by invertible pain
They seemed like years of torture and
Solitude,
Despair and scorched in eternal fire

Far more glorious than you could dream
I ruled them from my iron throne
Oh mighty lord, oh mighty don't let them
Forget
The fact, that they betray

Now that i'm back in the throne
I will never be all alone
I will make you pay the price
For locking me up inside
You thought i would never return
But one thing you should learn
A true king never forgets
You betray me

Three thousand years of sleep, but now have
Returned
A fleeting eternity, my strength regained
Black wintery dead, absent of color
Insect or beast, unmeasured by all life

The sufferings of man's mortality
I should weigh the sands, the sands of reality
Where all these things could pass us by
But i will not be deaf and blind
All but my pride they gave me back
And the agony they do not show
This suffocating sense of silence
They should use their voice until it's echoless
4. Birth of the Starchild (4:12)
Her beauty moved the new world with a glare,
With a smile
To a land of heroes and glorious kings
They will one day be born, it has been written
In songs they will always remember her

You will have a little piece of time yourself
We will live like this forever

Many will be dead below your feet, o' vision of cruelty
For your sake heroes shall be born again
For there is vengeance in your eyes, it will mean torturing
And death unto the sons of the kings'

In your face, o' beautiful child
Are the signs of warning
And the entrails of your past
5. Bringer of Light (4:16)
He lost the heavens war
He never found the way
Over the misty sea
Just like the sun he shined
Looking beneath the waves
That one returned no more
Just so you know
The loss was planned indeed

He may rule his world
From his throne of lies
But you're the only one
Who knows the truth of him

Show me the other worlds
These signs of grief
And all that lives
Will move up from the earth
He lost the heavens war
He never found the way
Just so you know
The loss was planned indeed

Afraid the nations will fall
Do more to win their love
But you're the only one
Who knows the truth of him

They may call you the prince of lies
Against the odds you once fell
From high above like a star
The bringer of light

And now the end is near
Apocalypse is here
And you shall rise once again
From your shallow grave

Now pass through the unknown
But still i know
When they tore all his wings
I heard a mournful cry
And all the angels wept
Their tears burnt the sky
It echoed through the heavens
As one of their own just died

Afraid the nations will fall
Do more to win their love
He may rule his world
From his throne of lies
6. Ascension (4:30)
A certain kind of delusion
That even. you can't penetrate
A strangling cloud of deception
Envelops a jealous, empty being

A preacher, preying an the fragile
Blinded by self importance
Sowing infected seeds
Delivering an empty curse

Armed with a vile tongue
Spewing forth sweet blasphemy
Sacrificing loyalists
To feed a bitter soul

With wicked vows delivered,
We stood steadfast and true
Embraced by fellow kindred,
Slaughtered where we slept

Through our own ascension,
Whilst clawing at our chests
A lasting peace restored,
As we shed our rotting flesh
7. ...and Death said live (2:01)
[Instrumental]
8. Destroyer of All (3:57)
It's time for a fight
It's time for another round
I'll take you down with the fire
Never again, never again
I will fight
I will fight for the last time
I'll show you the meaning of hell
One more time, one more time

Now hear the lies of the unborn child
Nothing but truth will be told when you kill the
Spawn
Now bring their souls against the wall and forget
Them all
Just paint the sky fully red with their blood

See this blade
This blade is gonna slice you up
I will skin you down from
Head to toe, head to toe
The fire burns within my soul
It won't fade away
Maybe i'll survive
To see another day

For a century i will hold the key
To open the gates to this forgotten world
When it's time to leave all across the seas
I will close the gates and find another place

For a century i will hold the key
To open the gates to this forgotten world
When it's time to leave all across the seas
I will close the gates and crush the human race
9. What the Future holds? (5:28)
And when the time was right for us to march to war
We took our weapons and went before the storm
This is another time and this is another place
This is what i was born to face

This burning planet that we do call our home
Forsaking others we are drifting all alone
Each passing day it's turning into a worthless hole
Living in denial means you're not living at all

Be free, for thee, i call for the open colors
In another existence of time and life
For me, this means an utter extinction
An end to an existence of time and life

To be killed, or be the one who kills
I had to make that choice before i lose my thrill
So when the time was right for us to march to war
We left our weapons and went into the storm

Is this the way we were designed to be?
Another man killing for another man's land
I don't want this to be like this
No food for the starving, no water for the thirsty
Is this the way we want the future to be?

We are the ones who can change all of this
We keep on fighting the eternal war
And this will be our final fall

I don't want this to end like this
The women are crying and the children are dying
Is this the way we want the future to end?
We are the ones who should change all of this
Maybe we just keep on fighting the eternal war
And this will be our last big fight
10. The Meadows of Asphodel (4:24)
And then from the mountains
To the river of Acheron
Maybe one day they will meet again
Like friends once departed

At first light they will leap, leaving light behind
And where they will end, they will need no sun as a guide
At moon-time they will flow to the worlds below
To the meadows of asphodel

Farewell my only friend, this night will be our last
Tonight we drink from Lethe and lose our past

Farewell my only friend, this night will be our last
Tonight we drink from Lethe and lose our past
These body erasing waters, minds and souls are splitting
When human beings have finished, they're just beginning

But if we live in Elysium, i pray we do
Then we all shall prosper, hand in hand
To be among the chosen, only few
When we get the call from the gods, then we must go
11. Dead Winds of Hope (6:23)
Who are you warlike men
Wearing grey armour that is stained by rust?
Breaking the ocean surge
Warden of deserted shores
Stands on his abandoned coast
Leading troops over the sea
None of them have landed yet
One last sleep 'till the end

Mother ocean, spread your arms around me
Mother ocean, let your children come towards me
Under my lonely sky
He is no common man
And when the raven died
I stared into his cold eyes
I saw it all unfold
And saw what this life was about

Beneath my wings my brothers lie
When the fierce winds hurtle by
On either side and 'neath my breast
Our sons have known no other rest

[William Sharp]
O' mighty father, lead us far
With hope and songs of love and war
Over the black sea and white foam
From here their children will find home
Remember days from long ago
Slowly we wander to and fro
But now dead winds that blur the light
Pierce deep our feathers thin and light
