Dead Heart, in a Dead World Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level
1. Narcosynthesis (5:31)
Hypnotize me, mesmerize me
Drain the color from my eyes
Patronize me, energize me
Change the world, internalize

How did it come to this, narcosynthesis
How did it come to this, narcosynthesis

Aleinate me, learn to hate me
Crucify your ideals, the flesh is the swine
We are the last ones and we are bleeding for an unseen god

How did it come to this, narcosynthesis
How did it come to this, narcosynthesis

Turn my blood to sand
Lives fall through the hourglass and grow cold
What are you searching for?
Turn my dirt to gold
Time the healer, the great concealer
Please salvage my soul

Victimize me, vilify me
Vilipend and amend the sins you condign
You are nothing and you speak for all that never was

Turn my blood to sand
Lives fall through the hourglass and grow cold
What are you searching for?
Turn my dirt to gold
Time the healer, the great concealer
Please salvage my soul
2. We Disintegrate (5:12)
Within the dark communion of self awareness
There lies a void called ego
An endless fusion of stillbirth and chaos
To bring its death can bring rebirth

I want to freeze the time, disintegrate the light
(Dissolve into gray as we disintegrate)
Let the rain come down, let the solitude surround

I want to change the lines and pacify the divide
(Dissolve into gray as we disintegrate)
Are we ever free, or slaves to technology?

Outside the fallen walls of pride and prejudice
There is a voice that speaks in circles
Empty illusions still fall before us
There is no future so profess your pain

I want to freeze the time, disintegrate the light
(Dissolve into gray as we disintegrate)
Let the rain come down, let the solitude surround

I want to change the lines and pacify the divide
(Dissolve into gray as we disintegrate)
Are we ever free, or slaves to technology?
3. Inside Four Walls (4:40)
Inside four walls I live my life, doesn't matter what I've done
The government's always right
They tell us what to be, tell us what to believe
They're wrong, my friend is gone

Inside four walls, inside four walls
The day they took away my friend

Injustice made its mark
All the political whores only come out after dark
If anyone knows the way
Build me a bridge so I won't fall astray

Inside four walls, inside four walls my friend
They took away your freedom
And the pigs still preach their lies

The system falls apart
The pigs still laugh feeding off our broken lives
Can anyone tell me why
Some violent criminals do far less time?

Inside four walls, inside four walls my friend
They took away your freedom
And the pigs still preach their lies
Inside fouir walls, inside four walls my friend
They took away your freedom

''It's a cold fact, that in the United States of America,
typically drug offenders do more time that child molesters, rapists and murderers...is this justice? is this the american way?''

But they'll never take your mind
4. Evolution 169 (5:51)
Welcome to the pleasure dome
Now take a seat, the crowd is watching you
Just rats in this experiment
Now learn the maze but don't tear yourself in two
Don't let it pull you down

And one by one we crawl, and two by two
Into the mouth of madness, we seek the perfect view
We reach another turn then fall out of time
In organized chaos, evolution 169

You can touch but never taste the answers
Like the way that I want you
Today I killed my ego, if hell is real
Dear God, please tie my noose
And then he pulled me down

And one by one we crawl, and two by two
Into the mouth of madness, we seek the perfect view
We reach another turn then fall out of time
In organized chaos, evolution 169
And one by one we crawl, and two by two
In organized chaos, we fly away

Don't set your mind to one side
Don't set your mind to one side
5. The River Dragon Has Come (5:06)
Today the warning came in the flood
Architects and fools never cared for poor men's blood
Cursed to repeat the past they are
The river dragon swims upstream
They've built another wall

The three will fall
Save us from the flood
Washed away we drown

The river dragon has come
Souls wash away
The earth has spoken
And taken them to their graves

Those who cannot remember the last
Fall away, far away
The distance meets its task

The three will fall
Save us from the flood
Washed away we drown

The river dragon has come
Souls wash away
The earth has spoken
And taken them to their graves
The river dragon has come
At first light of dawn
The earth has spoken
And in the crush they are gone

The three will fall
Save us from the flood
Washed away we drown

The river dragon has come
Souls wash away
The earth has spoken
And taken them to their graves
In the mass destruction the bringer shows his form
Technology the beast
The seventh crown
6. The Heart Collector (5:56)
To see the actor without tears
Dark rivers carve the years between the lines of self control
In my psychotic karmic fear, I own your tears anyway
And I am you, and we are not afraid

And we won't be here for long
The heart collector
Sings his song that's slowly boiling over

Nevermore to feel the pain
The heart collector sang
And I won't be feeling hollow for so long
Nevermore to feel the pain
The words fall out like fire
Just believe when you can't believe anymore

The stage is empty now
I hope we hold and cannot allow
The corrupt eclectic takes his fatal bow

And we won't be here for long
The heart collector sings his song again

Nevermore to feel the pain
The heart collector sang
And I won't be feeling hollow for so long
Nevermore to feel the pain
The words fall out like fire
Just believe when you can't believe anymore
7. Engines Of Hate (4:43)
Can I be your personal demon?
Sit back, absorb the words
And feast on my mind's semen
Can I be the devil on your shoulder?
We all fall down as the world gets even colder

I uncreate, I desecrate
I spit the truth into the engines of hate

Can I be your chemical pariah?
The world's such an ugly place
It seems useless sometimes trying
Will you watch the hate machine spin evil
Or will you look away and plead apathy again?

I uncreate, I desecrate
I spit the truth into the engines of hate

We sing into the sky on the production line
We are the holy swine, impurity defined
You can't ignore us anymore
You cannot judge us anymore

The sheep are made to follow
Choke back the puke and swallow
The sheep are told to divide
The engines of hate still grind
I uncreate, I desecrate
I spit the truth into the engines of hate
8. The Sound Of Silence (Simon & Garfunkel cover) (5:13)
Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seed while I was sleeping
And the vision that planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence
The sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
Beneath the halo of streetlamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp

When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
It split the night
And touched the sound of silence
The sound of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
"Fools," said I, "You do not know,
Silence like a cancer grows."

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening

System check
Neon black

And the sign flashed out its warning
Here's the words that it was forming,
The words of the prophet were written on the subway walls and tenement halls,
And whispered in the sound of silence
The sounds of silence
The sounds of silence
The sounds

"Fools," said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Here's my arms that I might reach you."
9. Insignificant (4:57)
Ours is not to question the reasons why
Crippled indecision repeats the path I once denied
Insignificant, am I?

The color of sundown, of crimson sky
The beauty that breaks down
And gives the day unto the night

And then one day you'll realize
Just a speck in the spectrum
Insignificant, am I?
And then one day you'll realize
The beauty that breaks down
Never learns the reason why

Scan my horizon as blue turns to black
The sky is gone again
And all beneath are born to die
Insignificant, am I?

And then one day you'll realize
Just a speck in the spectrum
Insignificant, am I?
And then one day you'll realize
The beauty that breaks down
Never learns the reason why
10. Believe In Nothing (4:22)
Into a strange new world, into the after
All your tears, might find you've fallen too far
Take another look, take another ride
Can't we make them leave the hate behind

And I still believe in nothing
Will we ever see the shape of tomorrow?

Into the empty storm, into the formless
Loss of hope, where we can forget the game

And I still believe in nothing
Will we ever see the cure for our sorrow?

Nothing is sacred when no one is saved
Nothing's forever so count your days
Nothing is final and no one is real
Pray for tomorrow and find you're empty still
11. Dead Heart In A Dead World (5:07)
To see the last survivor fall
To see their bastard sons against the wall
To see the emptiness as we decay
I see the world is dead, I am betrayed

Dead heart in a dead world
Dead heart in a dead world

This rotten hole that I call my home bled dry again
This lesion marked upon my soul
Left an empty hanging man

Across the fields, into the sea
To find the light from within
Out of this lake I've tried to crawl
I think I'm there and then again I fall
Again I fall

Burn your gods and kill the king
Subjugate your suffering
Dead heart in a dead world

We must remember wounds so deep
Take time to heal
And sometimes though we struggle still
Life seems surreal

Emotions turned to cold dead wood
Can still have life once more
The door that slammed upon your heart
Torn away, torn away

Burn your gods and kill the king
Subjugate your suffering
Dead heart in a dead world

Burn your gods and kill the kind
Subjugate your suffering
Dead heart in a dead world
Dead heart in a dead world
