Wearing a Martyr's Crown Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level 퀴트린
1. Shed the Blood (4:13)
Never turned like the slime that I always knew you were
Can't stand this life my soul lay in a pool of blood
Egocentric high ideals and rotten ways

Hatred, heartache
A few of my modes
Hatred, heartache
More than you will ever believe

Dominate, recriminate
Your slave infected role
Time after time I stare into vacancy

Deteriorate, investigate
What drives you to goal?
Lie after lie is my only reality

A solitary spot
A soul lost
Shed the blood of my inner fears

Searching into the silent beauty of a nightmare
Near empty cold lines and tribulations

SHED THE BLOOD

[1st solo: Olof]
[2nd solo/harmony: Marios]

As passion slips by your side, once again I SHED THE BLOOD!
2. Collision of Fate (5:13)
A collision course of the deepest kind
Emotions of your inner light
A fate worse than death!

On the most magical night of your life
The motion of the sinner's pride
And the love that we have lost

This is our last hope
This is our last search
As it was always there
A hopeful future
The realization of danger
The black stars!

Your fateful sight
Ignoring their spite
The destruction of hardships
A never ending story

We never seem to win this fight
One thousand steps that come between us

On the wings of fulfilling smiles
We never seem to wonder why
Our collision of fate will be worse than death

[1st melody: Marios]
[2nd melody / solo: Olof]
[3rd solo: Marios]

Your fateful sight
Ignoring their spite
This is our last hope
A collision of fate
3. A Grim Struggle (5:03)
This grim reality casts a gloom in our hearts
A grim struggle
The night of death
The day that life was cold
Pleading in the moonlight

In the fullness of time we live and learn
And we die soulless

This is not a dream
This is only reality
By and by you hear my words
You can't deny morality

(Hold on) Hold on to your dreams
Please don't let go
Of life's distress
(Hold on) Hold on to your dreams
It makes you feel more alive

Inspired by a past of pain
The only sense I have to make me alive

Life is hitting so hard,
Without a true meaning
This is my only shallow heart

Hold on
Please don't let go
Of life's distress
Hold on
It makes you feel more alive
4. Wearing a Martyr's Crown (4:30)
The crown of emptiness,
As night descended slowly
Maybe it's an illusion,
One fake dream, one grey plastic
Reality of tears and of repentance.
I felt my life crossing like
A stream of sadness

Wearing a martyr's crown
The crown of sadness
The crown of emptiness
Mortified by his rudeness

Souls sunk in despair
Futile actions the enemy of life.
Like an ego
That's trying to rip
Your heart out
I felt the fear for what I saw;
Trying to save something
This incredible heap of mistakes,
Stigmatized my soul

Wearing a martyr's crown
The crown of sadness
The crown of emptiness
Mortified by his rudeness
I felt the plainness and all
The errors, of this tragic truth
Wearing a martyr's crown

I felt the waves of sadness
Breaking my heart
I felt the fear of what I saw
I held my head up high
Wearing a martyr's crown
This crown

[1st solo: Marios]
[2nd solo: Olof]

I felt the waves of sadness
Breaking my heart
I held my head up high
Wearing a martyr's crown
5. Among Wolves (4:29)
Here is the truth that's lying
Deep within your grasp
My heart was blinded
To the facts you resurrect
Withered and unforgotten
This treachery at hand
Welcome to my world
Wit tears that turn to sand

An attribute to the strength I never had
Ashamed to look towards you as a friend
My time is pain; some questions never asked
Do you feel my sorrow?
Let's play your little game!

(Lose to regain)
This knowledge made in vein
(I will abstain)
This path to true arcane
(Renounce success)
A portion never told
(Denounce assist)
A tortured dying soul

Pride and trust is a luxury I have
Wallow in your lust we'll see how long it lasts
Pulling out your mind
Behold the jackal's nest
Travelling the poison seems to have effect

All misery, and the hypocritical role
Are these their best ingredients?

Your time will cease to exist
Crowned and torn
Life will make you a slave
We are Among Wolves!
6. Abandon (4:30)
Alas is it true or a dream?
Magic or reality?
Treacherous currents
I couldn't believe my eyes
Belated honesty is what they served
Abandon!

A vicious cycle, poisonous face,
And values lost in agony
Mendacious statements
Promises from angelic figures

I wish to turn back, to see things more clear
All this time and all these thoughts
Naked fear and arrogance
Was it all that I saw?

Abandon your heart
Abandon your pain
Abandon your life
We live and learn while the sun
Goes down. Abandon thee, for all time
The brand of your kind
To stand for all life

Listen to me
Show me your face
Fearful, soul-destroying act,
An absolute conceited creature
This was all that I saw

[1st solo: Olof]
[2nd solo: Marios]
7. Futile Tears (5:18)
I'm sick of this fight
I'm sick of these lies
Entering into solitude

Thorns rising up
Deleterious effect
Enter into futility

Of all we fear, of all we've done. Of all we've seen
Is that wrong message?

We cannot find a meaning
In this endless search

These futile tears are all I have in a time of nee
These futile tears are what cloud my eyes
I'm sick of this fight
I'm sick of these lies
Entering into solitude
These futile tears are what cloud my eyes

It's like a sickness burning deep inside
It's like the flood
It's like the tide
It's like infinity
It's like a door that never shuts
It's like the flood that rises up

Everything I have left (battle-scarred)
This blind hatred growing strong in my veins

These reasons I find
A self motivation to never back down
So leave it behind
And open the doorway to keep you alive

Incomprehensible ideas
Emotions of terror
A redeemer of pain
Damaging my entire soul

These futile tears are all I have in a time of need
Surrounded by this eerie atmosphere
I'm sick of this fight
I'm sick of these lies
Entering into solitude
These futile tears are what cloud my eyes

These futile tears are all I have in a time of need
These futile tears are what cloud my eyes
8. Wounded Angels (4:00)
Fatally I sleep with your sins
And truthfully I lay in your hate
A long version we had
A painful path of dark shadows

Blind obedience; if only they knew
What was coming?

An ancient mystery of prime honor
My actions so bright, the darkness I'll fight
I am the true king

Wounded angels arise from pain
Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wounded theories and waves of shame
Keep the spirit alive

Light the unknown
For those who will fall
A way to salvation
Close all the doors
For no one will call
The name of temptation

Favoring the truth
For all eternity they will be remembered
9. Mocking Modesty (4:29)
Lost and cold in our dark cave
Alas the reaper of loneliness
Something was way out there
Like a solitary tree

In the garden of dead landmarks
I don't want to die alone

I saw a star of incredible friendship
One way that allways shines
Through the hardship of the soul
To be hidden like a wintry smile

I don't want to die alone
In a world created for fools

Is there any end?
Is there any choice?
Is there just false hope?
Goodbye cruel world

You're mocking my modesty
A negative feeling
Made from a false birth
The road of deceptive words

You're mocking my modesty
Goodbye cruel world
10. Failure of All Human Emotions (4:36)
Lost in the depths of my heart
Through the years
All those actions
And a false appearance
The antithesis of life and death
Contradictions and waves of anger

The microscopic aura of consciousness

Screaming into the failure of all Human emotions
Go through the fire and water, have we really failed?

We have forgotten the essence of life
We've lost the faith, the deepest of knowledge
Can we recall all the good memories?
We have lost the faith, the essence of life

Arrogant manner, deceitful words,
Stranger in a cold hearted world

Keeping yourself in regret,
Holding onto your own sorrow
Feeding yourself to the light
And feel that there's no tomorrow

Evil minded and evil eyes
Wounds from the past
You keep on with this, it gives you pleasure
Now give me your soul as I smash you into oblivion
