The Rising Tide of Oblivion Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level
1. The World Devourers (4:32)
The massive gallery of killing tools,
A mad number of technological mircales.
Weapons not only kill their targets,
They also kill those who pull the triggers.
Violence, the language of the weak.

Let the pen be mightier, than the sword.

Wartime absurdity,
Is economical prosperity,
Greed over conscience.
Mothers weep over their dead son's bodies,
While prices are increasing in stock.
One man's sorrow is another man's pleasure.
Is that it?

All these victims of greed and loss,
You cannot forget, all these pictures.
A soldiers innocence,
Devoured by feirce memories.

Let the pen be mightier, than the sword.
Tamed, Deceived,
Enslaved by power.
Lost devoured,
Consumed with trauma.
Enslaved by power,
The World Devourers
2. Broken Spine (2:53)
Cut my threads,
I'm nothing but a marionette.

Lies and cliches harm and ruin,
Our exchange of views.
Never thought this could be me,
To weak to resist the flow.
Isn't it useless to speak of freedom of speech?
When we only try to adapt to other peoples opinions.

Cut my threads,
I'm nothing but a puppet.

I get frustrated when I look in the mirror,
I can't be proud of this face smiling at me.
No, I don't want to follow.
No, I can't stand my face.
Bleeding, dying, torn.
Emeshed in disillusion.

Stand the flow
3. Anthem Of Despair (3:36)
Starting slowly, globally unnoticed, ignored.
Plans are made to add another black chapter in history.
Condemned to an ocean of shame,
A lunacy beyond my empathy.
First blood, the begining.
A civil war.

The first dead night...in Rwanda,
A nation's eye is installed.
A prophet of peace and justice.
His eyes are sharp but his hands are bound.
Hate of the past grew between two tribes,
Soon, all hell should arise.

Exterminate they shout,
The beast in man was unleased in ecstacy of blood.
4. Walls Instead Of Bridges (2:36)
Ears deaf,
Eyes blind,
Mouth shut,
Day by day,
Victim by victim.

Blood runs softly down the screen,
Degenerating for the lifeless and the weak.
Degenerated
Minds off - hearts cold
Into the state that leaves the blind unvoiced.

More illusions (more veiwing figures)
The great reality,
Truth versus media.
Obey the pied piper of this century.

There are barricades instead of trails,
And walls instead of bridges.

Walls instead of bridges - I can't fight no more
Walls instead of bridges - Shall I fight for
Walls instead of bridges - For this fucking doom.
Walls instead of bridges
Tear them down

It's time to wake up
No longer be apart of this nightmare,
In which violence and lies domain.
5. Where Submission Reigns (4:21)
Submission reigns,
Where independant thought sleeps.
Blindness rules,
Where apathetic minds slumber.

Jihad, crusades, persecution, genocide.
Hum in lunacy to the name of god,
To justify the unjustifiable.

Religion - the great invention of man.
Mankind's crib of chaos,
The question of meaning and exsistance.

The great desire to belong,
To praise and submit.
Belief - Your invention was a necessity,
But fanatacism is sheer abuse.
God's will or your will?
This is fucking scapegoating!
A great home for thousands,
Providing temporary shelter and hope,
A god to trust in and find salvation,
Yet a perfect source of abuse.
6. From Grief... (0:57)
...Bring them back to me
7. ...To Oblivion (3:35)
There are vast oceans of flames in me
ruling me, pentrating me
letting me speak
but I can't scream no more

Can't you hear my thundering silence?
Can't you hear my silent screams?
they're so loud

Where have you been roaming lately?
Have I seen you passing by?
Or has it only been your shadow...

Let in some hot cold water - enjoy the rush
and take a short bath in your wasteland
embrace this rush
enjoy the phases

It's here and now
it won't stay forever
How come I've been carried away to these shores?
How come you're not here?

Have I expected you in vain...
8. Hibernating Reason (3:31)
You are a threat to the world
to its inregrity, to its dynamics
with a conscience on stand-by
and a servile need to bow

A puppet of politics you are
enmashed in the all consuming web of power
you are the subtle voice ofothers

Predictions are lies
deceive and misguide
your eye for an eye
has left you blind

Reinventing black and white
division of of good and bad
the language of social regression
the right cure for a wounded civilization?

What have you done to bring peace?
You have isolated your country

These erected walls of pride are defense
a narcissistic attempt to become immune

Blind, false and numb

I don't envy you,
your burden must be a bell of course
protagonist of the theater of the absurd
9. Definition Of Love (3:15)
Rape of soul
feel mighty now?
For two hours she was your possession
your object of desire
in your dirty arms
every minute under your sweat-stained body
steels years of her life

The awful taste of your skin lies on her tongue

She will always remember your disgusting face
while her life disintegrates slowly
so slowly

She cried
confused, abused
she pleaded "oh no more"
but she couldn't escape
this torment

Raped and tortured
is this your definition of love?
You bastards die a lonely death

Rest in pain without regrets
devoured - in your graves of guilt

Fuck you
I hate you
you raped
disgraced
destroyed her very core

I hope one day you'll be victim of her rage
10. Save The Drowning Child (3:27)
If thoughts were tears...
are you sick of yearning
this invisible fortress, this isolation
is your heart's cancer

There's no reason hiding
you great walls of self-defense
pull them all down
no need to retreat
your great walls of insecurity

Listen to what isn't said
see what is not shown
learn this language free from words
don't be deceived

Becoming numb
is the sound of decay
self-censorship and deadening only false friends
there's no reason hiding
your great walls of self-defense
pull them all down
remaining forever thoughtful

a curse?
No!
It's the bold star in reach out for

This is the path of prosperity
a prosperity within
this is the path of prosperity
made of thorns and broken glass
11. Beyond The Gates (3:10)
I'll make you bleed for
what others have done to me

Words are written on my tongue
scars of torment carved into each corner of my dying mind
inhabited by self-hatred

The day has ceased to breathe
night no longer sleeps
words unable to express
this loss of dignity

Inflicted by your ignorance
countdown is set to the implosion
(I will take it out on all of you)

A million hands that maim my feelings
and put out the dying light
by fear forever haunted
watehed by lying eyes

No returning from what you made of me
I'll reach out and drag you down with me
12. No Coming Home (4:20)
I left you alone

It's only my fault
I'm dying faced with all this uncertainty
God, I'm begging, please
bring them back to me

Seconds become minutes bemome hours become days

In my dreams
I hear him whisper
laugh
their cry for help
they shout my name

Seeing his fucking face
which I hate with every fibre of my heart
words can't express my disgust for you
so young, so innocent

Bring them back to me
13. The Last Silence (2:23)
(instrumental)
