Anatomy of Life Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. Misanthropolis
One city in the center of the universe
Gates closed down, all shut down
One city in the center of the universe
The emptiest place ever

There is no room for the righteous
There is no room for man
Veiled inside a dark curtain of insanity

In the agony of deep profound seclusion
The will could never last
In the identity of everlasting structures
The end of all that ever was a cause

All that ever was

A step out of the sunlight
A step out of a small demise
A step into seclusion
To emphasize the point of life

One city in the burning of bright flames
Bright flames for hate of man
Veiled inside a hopeless curtain of insanity
2. Burden of Solacement
The sun draws a line, how scathing, divine
Yet under cold grief I shiver like a leaf in October gale
My skin turns so pale and feels burning sore
It happens once more

Release me from this guilt
Set me free out of this hell

Will you bring solace when this pain floods my soul?

As anger abates deep sorrow awaits
I'm drained and alone
On the edge of the unknown
3. Retrospection
On threshold of madness in self denial state
Within a holocause, with unlimited rage
A major plan about everything as one
A sad amendment for something long gone

On throne of sickness in self deluded state
The walls are built for the one wasted away
A major need to apply another sore
A cruel fortune, an explanation to adore

Oh, euphoria
How I long for you
How I crave for you

Tainted, all the moments are wasted
Just to really be certain
To re-arrange everything
Just to be real

I'll gather tonight my thoughts upon another sore
Sometimes it hurts so real it's unreal

Hey, I'll gather my thoughts upon another sore
Hey, a recreation to another level of man
Hey, a recreated man
4. The Burning
Breathing, breathing
This morning still shadows the night
Hiding, hiding so long behind the mask of the lies

From depths of the fire this water was born

A moment of hope
A moment of truth
A moment of all that we stand for

From depths of the fire this water was born

This moment, bygone, still echoes the time
The time when this water was pure
This moment, bygone, turned earth against earth
All lives turned to matter from mind

From depths of the fire this water was born

Find
A moment of hope
A moment of truth
A moment of all that we stand for
5. Monument of Pain
Since the beginning we have stumbled in scattered ashes
Since the beginning we have buried justice in mass graves

Lest we forget the past
Build once more a sinister monument of pain
Lest we forget
Build once more this sinister monument of pain

Legacy binding us
To fulfil our nature of the beast
Legacy binding us
To unveil the bleakness in our deeds

Since the beginning we have followed
the heart of darkness
Since the beginning we have sworn
by horror and cruelty

It dwells deep inside
Under the fragile surface
Awaiting with teeth bared
In the darkest of corners
6. Triumph and Loss
Putrid and foul
Gone and wasted inside out
Putrid and foul
Gone and wasted

This is an apocryphon

Concealed inside me
Concealed inside, a scenery
Concealed inside me
Concealed inside, a scenery

Concealed for the very first time
Concealed inside, for a reason why
Concealed for ages to come
This scenery of triumph and loss

Regret, remorse
This is hatred inside out
Regret, remorse
This is hatred outside in

This is an apocryphon
7. Marionettes
Truth in redemption's pyre
Scorched out, no longer in life
Awaiting these souls on fire
In life, there's no brighter side

Once hateful as all its slaves
More fertile than its enemies
Impossible to control
But still a reason for us to live on

Keep away from scarecrows dreams
Dismay feeds all these marionettes
See the truth and manipulation
With lies they breed all these marionettes

Truth over denial inside a thought bleaker than life
Lustre of all that remains is the day
when we all are the same
Adapted to black, still on way down
Beyond redemption in a state stronger than hate

Truth over all dreams
Deceit to feed the desolated breed
The point of all that's been done
Is the moment we all are gathered as one
8. Through the Element
In another place or time the sound will play forevermore
The one with magic in name is deep down and stuck there to the core
Can not see all this wanton misery
Through the night of shades, through the doom

The echoes of place and time carry the voices evermore
The one with tears in eyes is stuck here, but deep down in the core
None to see but this wanton elegy
Through the silver tears, through the wounds

The sound of place and time
Echoes in chambers nevermore
The one with wounds too deep
Is broken and cast out to the core
A wanton deep for this wanton elegy
Through the element, to the core

Forever in disguise this chosen place and time
While all was aligned one shed the tears for life
9. Fire and Water
Earth bound to fire
Fire bound to earth
Matter and substance forlorn in mortal word
I am immortal, I am the one
I am the soul in reign
I am the one enslaved beyond decay

Life turned to death
Truth turned to lie
Crumbled the mortal order beyond life

Life bound to death
Truth bound to lie
Crumbled the mortal order, man-made lie

Fire and water
Creation and decay
A moment of chance
A moment of cause
When life is torn away

Fire and water
Symptoms without a cause
Polar to death as polar to life
Symptoms define the cause for life

Water bound to fire
Fire bound to water
Matter and substance forlorn in another

I am the wisdom, I am the cause
I am as whole in pain
I am the one enthroned beyond decay

Hope with me for this to suffocate now
It is time, it is right
It is everything
Hope with me for this to suffocate
Die, die, die
And born out of fire
