Face of Despair Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. I Am Immortal (4:42)
I fear no foe, I have no fear
See me laughing when death comes near
Pain is sweet and life is cold
There's no repenting when you grow old
I seek revenge, my master's hell
Crumbled ruins as his kingdom fell
Must take your life, to set me free
Turn your back on immortality

I am Immortal got no right to die
I am Immortal no one can deny
I am Immortal 'til the end of time
I am Immortal

I have no guilt there is no law
My blackened heart's rotting at the core
Break the rules a crying shame
Nothing matters 'cos it's just a game
Take your aim, the life you choose
Just one chance if you win or lose
Fight 'til death the battle is won
Revenge is mine the superior one

I am Immortal got no right to die
I am Immortal no one can deny
I am Immortal 'til the end of time
I am Immortal

Take you chances if you dare
Time will break your evil stare
Legend says it's you or I
Destroy the myth and you will die

See the sound of slashing swords
Piercing through your heart
The screaming of the civil lords
Wash away the weeping wounds, tearing you apart
The weaving of the evil hordes
The Master will scorn you, he'll even forlorn you
He'll give you a price to pay
There's nothing he gave you, no reason to save you
Have mercy you bastard, take your soul away

Traumatic tales of torrid tears, chopping off your head
Trapped into a terror state
Forcing off those fractured fears, finding out your dead
Forget about your future fate
The Master has cursed you, his spell has dispersed you
He gave you the price to pay
Revenge has been won and a new life begun
'Cos I am immortal
2. Voyage Of The Disturbed (5:03)
Music : Carwana, Burke, Eftichiou
Lyrics : Maurer

Dreams, looking for a sign of intelligent life
Screams, trying to realize the American plight
Wuth dignity and pride,
the government denied
Pushing to the limits cos'
they're never satisfied
Please, look at what you've done

Chorus:
Voyage of the disturbed
Chalenging another world,
Voyage of disturbed
Voyage of the disturbed
Chalenging a future world,
Voyage of disturbed

Fear succumbing to the needs of political might
Sheer, astronomical pressure
you hit the speed of light
No-one seems to realize
the fate of history
Please, look at what you've done
(Back to Chorus)

Solos : Mick, Paul
3. The Infantry Corps (3:51)
March through the mist when the armies enlist
All the children who fight for their older
They storm through the night in a half state of fright
Their future is strapped to their shoulder
They battle their shadows on the wall
They jump when the major gives the call
They fight for their freedom, their country don't need'em
The war will eventually kill'em all

They live for tomorrow in agony and sorrow
And learning that the strongest will survive
They're dodging for cover, they scream for their mother
They struggle just to keep themselves alive

The children of the infants corps
Don't know what they've been fighting for
They're only young, they know they've paid the price
Their innocence unselfishness
And all in all defencelessness
The government has made the sacrifice

Who's responsible for the Infantry Corps
Who's responsible for the Infantry Corps

Young bodies are lying everywhere
Lifeless but no one seems to care
Hooray for the children, the country just killed'em
The blame's here for everyone to share

The children of the infants corps
Don't know what they've been fighting for
They're only young, they know they've paid the price
Their innocence unselfishness
And all in all defencelessness
The government has made the sacrifice

The Infantry, the Infantry,
You're in the Infantry Corps,
The Infantry
4. For Richer For Poorer (4:45)
Music : Burke
Lyrics : Maurer

No-one finds their peace of mind
Manipulation of mankind
An indication of the blind
There’s no answer you will find

Freedom of choice, freedom of mind
Freedom of speech don’t waste our time
We know what we want
We’ll take it in our stride

Money making is what it takes
It’s your decision there’s no mistakes
Hear the voices crying out
You’ll see the poor go without

Don’t ask them the reason why
They’ve all the power money can buy
Don’t ask them to split their share
Don’t waste your time ‘cos they don’t care

Destitution is not a crime
Revolution’s a waste of time
Administrastions enjoy the ride
The government is on their side
Don’t ask them the reason why
They’ve all the power money can buy

Solo : Mick

The rich get richer, the poor stay poor
The rich get richer always wanting more
The rich get richer, the poor stay in poverty
Why did they decide to call it a democracy

Repeat
5. Martyrs Of Eternity (5:11)
Have you thought about the future?
Has it spoiled your desire?
To worship your creator, and step into the fire
Without a doubt, there's no way out
You watch the children morn
It's serious, delirious, you wonder why you're born

Martyrs of eternity spirits in the air
Martyrs of eternity face of despair

Are we closer to disaster?
That's been brought upon our own
Do we answer to our master, whose punishment is known?
You've got to fight, within your rights, then live in fear of danger
Never give, your will to live, away to any stranger

Martyrs of eternity spirits in the air
Martyrs of eternity face of despair

Dying, looking back on our mistakes
But no one wants to learn
Dying, the children of the human race
Are part of your concern
Dying, every time you give new life
Another one will burn
Dying, martyrs of eternity
Whose souls will not return

Is it worth all the frustrations, do you think it'll all work out?
Did we fail the expectations, do people scream and shout
There's no remorse, without of course a question for the answer
They left no clues, there in recluse, the world has a terminal cancer

Martyrs of Eternity
6. Innocent Torture (4:12)
Another vicious headline, the pictures painted clear
The jury found me guilty I was jailed for 20 years
There was one night a murder I was covered in blood stains
I called the police onto the scene to study the remains
They asked me several questions I didn't have a chance
I found myself a slaughtered corpse impaled upon a fence
I'm innocent I cried in vain whilst dragged into a van
You're blaming me for murder, I just don't understand

I'll prove my innocence, I did not kill!
In just one instance they took my will!

Left to die in this rotting cell, trying to make me go round the bend
Evil eyes staring through the bars, accused of murdering my friend
"I did not kill" I screamed at them, they didn't believe my alibi
I'm innocent, I swear the oath, I need some help don't want to die

I'll prove my innocence, I did not kill!
In just one instance they took my will!

I've done my time I've counted the years
The days are scribbled on the wall
Soon the time comes when I wipe the tears
And I'll be searching for the score

I'll prove my innocence, I did not kill!
In just one instance they took my will!

Innocent torture can't take it no more no family no friends and no will
Innocent torture the anger inside, the hate the pain I want to kill
Innocent torture for 20 odd years I've aged I've grown and I've lost
Innocent torture free me I'm old the time the waste the fucking loss
7. Suspended Animation (4:56)
'28, in the grip of depression
Alleviate all the pain of conception
Don't hesitate you got to raise your ambition
Annihilate all the theories of suspension

40 years of agony waiting to be free
Victim of the gruesome days of the 20th Century
The Future is a mystery a question of Salvation
Frozen in a tomb of ice Suspended Animation

Meditate just can't help my aggression
Violate on the verge of destitution
Deviate the master plan of my ascension
Mitigate all my lack of contribution

You said it didn't matter, fate can't be changed
You never even told me the world was rearranged
Nothing's getting better the years are getting worse
I think that I'm a victim of the animated curse

Take me back to my own time when things were not as bad
The end of my suspended dream
A time when there were peaceful nights when wars were not so sad
A promise that I must redeem
And when the years are rolling by I know I won't regret
It's never better than the past
The future wasn't meant for me and that I won't forget
Suspended Animation was the curse that had been cast
8. H (3:19)
Trying hard to survive the nuclear devastation
Under shelter for a year maybe more
Scrounging for food that may have survived the source of radiation
Amidst the darkness lying below the floor
The tragedy of Hiroshima, the killing of a nation
A logical way to end a bloody war
The lone survivors all together in a congregation
Praying for mercy behind a leadened door

Sheltered, sheltered from the storm, shattered

The kamikazes and the Maxis suffering condemnation
Wondering if they'll ever stay alive
Looking for ways to pacify the constant aggravation
Under pressure to let them all survive
The Tragedy of Hiroshima, the killing of a nation
Hundreds of thousands of people left to die
Nuclear clouds surround the tombs with little admiration
The children in the shelter start to cry

Sheltered, sheltered from the storm, shattered

Taking away the prisoners, taking away their lives
Taking away their freedom
They won't survive the shelters, they won't survive the pain
They won't survive the memories
Crying out for peace, crying in disgust
Crying out in ignorance
Fighting s losing battle, fighting s lost cause
Fighting against the hypocrisy of fighting a nuclear war
9. Terminal Reward (4:34)
Music : Carwana, Burke
Lyrics: Maurer

Laughing at the Numbmess,
a hundred years of pain
Doubting my existence, memories remain
Praying for the hour, I will finally die
Terminate the power, send me to the sky

Blood evaporation, my heart is pumping air
My mind is left debating, torment or despair
Explain me this confusion, what's it really worth ?
Take the last transfusion, return me to my birth

Solo : Mick

Standing at the point where there's no return
There ain't no turning back
Send me down here where the fire's burn
Running with the pack
Devilish forces by my side, my future's looking grim
Angels calling death defied
sing the battle hymn

I ended my life just to ease the pain
But now it's hurting more
Travelled through life on the astral plane
But someone has closed the door
Facing judgement's final call
Nowhere left to go
Left to ponder Satan's fall
The seeds are here to grow
