An Absence of Faith Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. Out of the Darkness (3:38)
I’ll show you something, but you won’t see
I’ll give you nothing, nothing for free
You crossed the dark side, you sold your soul
No turning back now, you’ve dug your hole

Chorus:
Out of the Darkness, and into the black
Out of the Darkness, and into the black

You have the power, inside your mind
To make a difference, to all mankind
Your time is ticking, you beat your drum
They criticize you, what you’ve become

Chorus:
Out of the Darkness, and into the black
Out of the Darkness, and into the black

Can you be what you wanna be
Can you forget your past
Are you all that you oughta be
Take you into the black
Can you be what you wanna be
Can you forget your past
Are you all that you oughta be
Take you into the black

You make decisions, you must decide
The force of evil, You can’t deny
The truth is out there, you force your hand
You must believe it, to make a stand

Chorus:
Out of the Darkness, and into the black
Out of the Darkness, and into the black
2. Deadman Walking (5:45)
The symptoms are showing
Diseases are growing
Psychosis is playing on your mind
Your skin cells are shedding
Bacteria is spreading
It’s warfare so kill the mastermind

Prechorus:
Can you hear the warning?
Can you hear the warning?
Can you hear the warning – this time?

Chorus:
Humankind never heeds the warning
Realise that the day is dawning
Outside - the dogs are talking
Outside – A dead man walking

There’s no use in praying
Your sanity is fraying
You know there’s no chance to find a cure
The Government is lying
While millions lay dying
Your future has not quite been assured

Prechorus:
Can you hear the warning?
Can you hear the warning?
Can you hear the warning – this time?

Chorus:
Humankind never heeds the warning
Realise that the day is dawning
Outside the dogs are talking
Outside A dead man walking


Chorus:
Humankind never heeds the warning
Realise that the day is dawning
Outside - The dogs are talking
Outside – A dead man walking

Deadman – walk the earth
Deadman – walk the earth
Deadman – walk the earth
Deadman – walk the earth
They got their eyes on you
3. Tears of Redemption (8:53)
Orphaned children everywhere
In the mosques of Lebanon
Families gathered round in prayer
But the chance for peace is gone
20 years of bloodshed
Victims of the war
13 brothers all shot dead
But your faith is not secured

Can you feel all the racial tension?
Can you feel the violent hate
As you pray for the tears of redemption
You pray but it’s all too late

The misery of the Blood Death Hatred
As you’re thrown into the fire,
As you fear for the mortal slaughter
They’re branding you a liar

Can you believe the gall?
They’ve tried to claim the wall!
That once was built for all!

They’re trying to deceive me believe me
They think they can control me console me
Islam has betrayed me repaid me
Your god has abused me confused me

Our lives, your fate
Are bound by illusions you create
Your seeds of hate
Your god, your creed
Bound & tied by the hands of greed
You won’t succeed

Chorus:
You amuse me, You abuse me
I refuse to be a muslim
You forsake me, you can’t break me
You won’t make me be a muslim

Your rules, your race
Are drawn to the power of the holy place
You breed disgrace
We hear your cries
You feel the need to criticize
You need your lies

Chorus:
You amuse me, You abuse me
I refuse to be a muslim
You forsake me, you can’t break me
You won’t make me be a muslim

Your war – your fear, is haunting me
Your war – your fear, is haunting me
Your war – your fear, is haunting me
Your war – your fear, is haunting me


Can you believe the gall?
They’ve tried to claim the wall!
That once was built for all!
4. Before the Bough Breaks (4:53)
The air that I breathe is suffocating me
These things that I do, confusing me
The eyes of the blind are staring at my soul
My time on this world has taken its toll

Chorus:
How far – Can you go before you break?
Can your mind and body take?
If you make just one mistake?
How far – Can you go before you break?
Can your mind and body take?
If you make just one mistake?
Before the Bough begins to Break

This life that I lead is aggravating me
These thoughts in my head confusing me
This switch in my brain is turned to overload
I’m going insane – I’m about to explode

Chorus:
How far – Can you go before you break?
Can your mind and body take?
If you make just one mistake?
How far – Can you go before you break?
Can your mind and body take?
If you make just one mistake?
Before the Bough begins to Break


Did you get what you want?
Did you get what you need?
Did you get what you want?
Did you get what you need?

Chorus:
How far – Can you go before you break?
Can your mind and body take?
If you make just one mistake?
How far – Can you go before you break?
Can your mind and body take?
If you make just one mistake?
How far – Before the bough breaks?

Every time you look at me I feel like I’m the enemy
How far? Before the bough breaks?
I don’t think we’ll make it through, you can’t see my point of view
How far? Before the bough breaks?
Always criticising me sapping all my energy
How far? Before the bough breaks?
I wish that it was yesterday – same old shit everyday
How far? Before the bough breaks?
5. Rise or Fall (3:53)
You can walk the streets, or live the dream
Who’s to blame for your low self esteem?
You can live your life or take it away
No one will notice if you live another day
Live another day

Chorus:
Rise or Fall – You don’t have to be another brick in the wall
Rise or Fall – Take it or leave it if you’re sick of it all
Rise or Fall – You’re learning to run before you’re learning to crawl
Rise or Fall – Just rise or fall

You can hide your face, or face your fear
Who will notice if you disappear?
You’ve lived your life under scrutiny
There’s no use fighting for your destiny
For your destiny

Chorus:
Rise or Fall – You don’t have to be another brick in the wall
Rise or Fall – Take it or leave it if you’re sick of it all
Rise or Fall – You’re learning to run before you’re learning to crawl
Rise or Fall – Just rise or fall

Chorus:
Rise or Fall – You don’t have to be another brick in the wall
Rise or Fall – Take it or leave it if you’re sick of it all
Rise or Fall – You’re learning to run before you’re learning to crawl
Rise or Fall – Just rise or fall

Rise or Fall
6. My Nightmare (3:48)
Every time I can’t get to sleep
I struggle with my conscience
Promises I cannot keep
Running out of patience

Prechorus:
Every time I sleep I cannot keep my sanity (Sanity)
Every time I wake I cannot fake my anxiety

Chorus:
This is my nightmare – this is not a dream
This is my nightmare – this is not a dream

Fighting through the dead of the night
Waiting for the sun
Waking in a state of fright
Nowhere left to run

Prechorus:
Every time I sleep I cannot keep my sanity (Sanity)
Every time I wake I cannot fake my anxiety

Chorus:
This is my nightmare – this is not a dream
This is my nightmare – this is not a dream

Try to dream of sunshine – all I see is rain
Senseless aggravation – messing with my brain
Messing with my brain

Prechorus:
Every time I sleep I cannot keep my sanity (Sanity)
Every time I wake I cannot fake my anxiety

Chorus:
This is my nightmare – this is not a dream
This is my nightmare – this is not a dream
This is my nightmare – this is not a dream
This is my nightmare
7. Say Your Prayers (4:24)
All of my life you dared to abuse me
Drowning my dignity
How could you leave me scared and defenceless?
Leaving a scar on my memory

Chorus:
Say your prayers
Good luck to your health
He who dares – Is hanging himself
Say your prayers
Good luck to your health
He who dares – Is hanging himself

No use pretending you never hurt me
12 years of misery
Counting my bruises mending my fractures
You say it’s nothing well I disagree

Chorus:
Say your prayers
Good luck to your health
He who dares – Is hanging himself
Say your prayers
Good luck to your health
He who dares – Is hanging himself

This morning I woke and I had to react
I can’t take it no more I decided to act
With my hand on my gun I walked up to his bed
I pulled back on the trigger the fucker is dead

The fucker is dead – I did what you said – Get out of my head
The fucker is dead – I did what you said – Get out of my head

Chorus:
Say your prayers
Good luck to your health
He who dares – Is hanging himself
Say your prayers
Good luck to your health
He who dares – Is hanging himself
Say your prayers
8. Lost Within (4:09)
Staring at the mirror
Can you see what the mirror sees?
Where is the reflection?
A blank mind staring back at me
Watching the reaction
Trying to fake the reality
Missing in the action
I need someone to set me free

Chorus
I’m lost - within my mind, within my head, within myself
Lost - within my mind, within my head, within myself

Looking through a window
Faceless strangers watching you
Staring at the victim
Trying to change my point of view
Feeling like a failure
Those who just don’t have a clue
Actions of a saviour
Heartbeat kick start overdue

Chorus
I’m lost - within my mind, within my head, within myself
Lost - within my mind, within my head, within myself
Lost, Lost Within
Lost, Lost within

I’m losing my mind, don’t believe what I said
I’m losing the things that live inside of my head
So give me a needle but don’t give me no drug
Don’t give me your freedom I’d rather be dead

Picking up the pieces
Pull this dagger from my chest
Looking like a newsflash
Put this dead man to the test
Asking all the questions
Why my body’s being possessed
Finding out the answers
Lay my body down to rest

Chorus
I’m lost - within my mind, within my head, within myself
Lost - within my mind, within my head, within myself
Lost, Lost Within
Lost, Lost within
Lost within my head
9. Eye in the Sky (4:36)
Blood on your hands
Fear in your eyes
Your retina scans have been recognised
Your running for miles
They’re running your files
Your DNA has been analysed

Prechorus:
Can we trust politicians won’t misuse their trust
Mass surveillance they all know who we are
You can’t pretend anymore
Keep your mouth shut you know you’ve broken the law

Chorus:
Eye in the sky
Eye in the sky
Big brother big brother discovers your lie
Eye in the sky
Eye in the sky
The political machine has recorded your lie

Blood on the streets
A young girl cries
No one is safe unless a minster dies
The governments rules
The governments fools
The CIA has you terrorised

Prechorus:
Can we trust politicians won’t misuse their trust
Mass surveillance they all know who we are
You can’t pretend anymore
Keep your mouth shut you know you’ve broken the law

Chorus:
Eye in the sky
Eye in the sky
Big brother big brother discovers your lie
Eye in the sky
Eye in the sky
Tthe political machine has recorded your lie

Hey you! On camera two!
Why do you think the camera’s pointed at you?
Can’t you see on camera three
A dirty politician doesn’t matter to me

Chorus:
Eye in the sky
Eye in the sky
Big brother big brother discovers your lie
Eye in the sky
Eye in the sky
The political machine has recorded your lie
10. Broken Promises (3:42)
Satisfied that you lied
The people want you crucified
Won’t you tell the truth?
On the side I’m terrified
Of all the rules that you’ve implied
Won’t you tell the truth?

Chorus:
No need to make broken promises
No need to tell those lies
No need to make broken promises

You can’t ignore the deaths of war
They’re picking bodies off the floor
Won’t you call a truce?
And furthermore you’ve closed the door
On all the troops that you withdraw
Won’t you call a truce?

Chorus:
No need to make broken promises
No need to tell these lies
No need to make broken promises

I know you can’t keep making these promises
I know you can’t keep telling those lies
I know you’re just the American president
It’s not your son who regretfully dies
Why can’t you see what you need to see
Why can’t you be what we need you to be

I know you can’t keep making these promises
I know you can’t keep telling those lies

Chorus:
No need to make broken promises (“No need! No Need!”)
No need to tell these lies (“No Lies! No Lies!”)
No need to make broken promises (“No need! No Need!”)
No need to tell those – tell those lies!
