Post Momentary Affliction Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Allusions from the Valley of Shadows (0:47)
2. From the Valley of Shadows (8:05)
"What is truth?", I ask myself
All religions boast absolute truth
But temptation is all that I find
As flesh craves overshadows the emptiness
On through the valley of blindness I roam
As voices whisper in the wind around
Calling me into the darkness beyond
Like the sound of sirens in the distance
[CHORUS]

From the valley of the shadows
Into the darkness beyond
Feel the calling of pleasures
Overshadow man's emptiness

My guiltiness bleeds internally
Inside tunnels of blocked emotions
The silent screams within my inner being
Bursting forth in desperation

[CHORUS]

Disillusionment fades
As I change my course
Rejection of pride through repentance
The answer revealed - messeanic deity
The judge paid the sinners debt

[CHORUS TWO]

From the valley of the shadows
Into the light of Crist
I follow the calling if righteousness
As shadows cringe from the brightness

Peace engulfs me
As I surrender my life
The entwinning of guilt is lifted away
Shadows are scattered by
The Lamb of God
Delivered from the
Abuse of substances

3. Human Condition (4:36)
[VERSE ONE]
Wars and famines, A.I.D.S. and broken lives
Drug offenses, damage to bring demise
Bury the dead in their coffins
Mankind is rotting away
Global misconceptions
Lies to steal your life

[BRIDGE]

Lies, wars, hatred, Antichrist
[CHORUS]

Human condition
It is no superstition
Human condition
In desperate need of God

[VERSE TWO]

Privatisation, selling the world away
Abolishing independance
New World Order shall arise
Bury the dead in their coffins
Mankind is rotting away
Cashless world is coming
The beast is on arise

[BRIDGE]
[CHORUS]

[VERSE THREE]

One will rise with false hope
Seeming to solve the crisis
The man of sin, the Antichrist
Bringing the lies of death
Bury the dead in their coffins
Mankind is rotting away
Look in the Bible for answers
Don't accept the false demise

4. Distarnish Priest (7:25)
[CHORUS]
Distarnish Priest
Distarnish Priest
I'm clean, washed in blood
Sanctified inside out
Oh I'm dead to Satan's grasp
Justified by the cross

[VERSE ONE]

Vertical convulsion, striven force
Grasp desired service
Hideous onslaught attacks the mind
Vicious intent prevails

[BRIDGE]

Serve your God
Your time will come

[VERSE TWO]

Guard your heart, bow before God
Sack cloth and ashes repentance
Radical conversion, zeal of love
Put faith in actions

[INTERLUDE]

I'm lost, inside your ways
I've found, a new escape
This life, no fantasy
New ways, reality
Always growing, never fading
Hope increasing, peace astounding
Always knowing, never falling
My salvation, making me

[CHORUS]

[VERSE FOUR]

Wretched man, that I am
Chronicle thought diseases
My priestly robes must be clean
Pentinence of ministers

Bow at the altar of sacrifice
Living flesh submission
Eucharist served to others passed
Priest of life's maturity

7. Pride Sanitarium (1:18)
8. Overseer (9:18)
A compassionate God Looks down upon the earth
As the void in man's heart grows wide
Empty human grabs at the air around
As fashions drift along through life
Chasing the wind

The emptiness will never be satisfied
While pleasure warms the dullness inside
Restoration groans for fulfillment
Within the captivity of pride

[CHORUS]
Overseer, creation testifies
As pride of man holds back the helpless cries
Drawing near with arms stretched open wide
Inviting forgiveness in its place inside

Instinct persuades the will
Men like animals respond
To the calling of desire
Ignorant of the creator
May God subject them all
Our to labour on their own
When human strength fails
Then they'll call upon the Lord
Yet in God's great compassion
He floods His grace upon our soul
Mankind chooses helplessness
As pride holds back the cries
And outwardly denies it
As he closes up inside

[CHORUS]

I cry out to the Lord in my distress
He takes away the chains
That bind my soul
Let us give thank for His
Unfailing word
For He sets us free

[CHORUS]

Crush this momentary pain
Crush this momentary pain
Crush this momentary pain
Crush this momentary pain
10. Flight of Victory (1:52)
11. Impulsation (4:25)
[VERSE ONE]
Impulsation
Smash and grab world
Impulsation
Live fast, die young
You'll not find real satisfaction
You'll find emptiness
Fake gratification

[VERSE TWO]

Impulsation
Patience never learned
Impulsation
Satisfaction now
Can't you see, this won't last
lasting peace comes from Christ

[CHORUS]

You'll find self-control
If you find salvation
Blood and the fire purge your mind
Ultimate satisfaction, real peace
Lasting joy comes through Christ
White wash your mind
Find your release

Bludgeon to death lust in your life
Consecrate to live right
Manifest the grace of God
Supplicate prayer and love

Till it follows from our gasp
Engulfed, it takes our breath
Till every word flows with life

Aquatic regurgitation
Cannot hold it in
We are full of health
Can't get too much of this good thing

If anyone is thirsty
Come to Christ and drink
Whoever believes in Christ
Living water flows from him

[VERSE THREE]

Everyone who drinks water
Will be thirsty again
Drink the water of life
Welled up streams for eternity
