From the Underground and Below Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. It Lives (4:32)
Spread it out over time and find out
Your prone to let it go
And it lives
All about the undead devotion
About to let it go
You seem to live

Drop me into the mouth of sorrow
Wait to swallow me
And it lives
Pull me out of a dead tomorrow
As I'm about to give
I seem to live

From the mouth of the gone
Laughing out loud
And it lives
from the hand of the wrong
Bury the proud
As I did
It lives

Into extinction fall the essence of life
Spiritual eclipse turns the days into nights

Whitout distinction got-got got to beleive
Threat of extinction put them down on their knees

Cold desolation calling beckoning you
Into exctinction fades the rest of what is good and true

Tearing into the last remaining
Shreds of sanity
And it lives
Pull me out of undead devotion
As I'm about to give
I want to live

From the mouth of the gone
Laughing out loud
And it lives
from the hand of the wrong
Bury the proud
As I did

From the mouth of the gone
Laughing out loud
And it lives
from the hand of the wrong
Bury the proud
As I did
It lives
2. Save Me (4:56)
Miracle Man
You're Miracle Man

Save me from the outside
Save me from the hurt
Save me from this cold inside and
Save me from myself

What you see when you're looking at me
Take me out, take me out of captivity
Got my head, my dreams, my dead my screams
Started up the engin of the afterlife machine

I've got your head and your covenant of dreams (I've got your head)
I've got your dead and a collection of your screams

Not your ordinary bout with madness
I'm in love with the infinite sadness
Can you see clear to save me, save me
From myself, save me

Miracle Man
You're Miracle Man

Keep me safe and warm
Keep me underground
Keep me from what I deserve and
Don't just keep me down

What I want, what I need to be
Take me out, take me out of obscurity
Got my head, my dreams, my dead, my screams
Gone o.d. on the afterlife machine

I've got your head and your afterlife machine (I've got your head)
I've got your dead and a collection of your screams

Not your ordinary bout with madness
I'm in love with the infinite sadness
Can you see clear to save me, save me
From myself, save me

Just a victim of my imagination

What you see when you're looking at me
Take me out, take me out of captivity
Got my head, my dreams, my dead my screams
Started up the engin of the afterlife machine

I've got your head
I've got your dead

Not your ordinary bout with madness
I'm in love with the infinite sadness
Can you see clear to save me, save me
From myself

Not your ordinary bout with madness
I'm in love with the infinite sadness
Can you see clear to save me, save me
From myself
save me
3. Long Time Dyin' (4:53)
Seen this happen once before
with a little of touch of denial
A man on his knees he was licking the floor
like he's trying to reconcile
You fill your pot with anger,
You eat all that you can,
Tell you one thing as I look back now
I don't ever want to be that man again

Cannot feel it at all
Can't you feel it
Can't taste it at all
Can't you taste it
Then I looked him straight in the eye
And I said hey man
Are you gonna take a long time dyin'
No

Standin' on a white line
Tryin' to free my soul
Sey hey God would give me a sign
I'm actin' like a fool
I filled my heart with hatred
Puked up all I would
Tell you one thing I got on my knees
I wouldn't do it again even if if I could

Can't feel it at all
Can't you feel it
Can't taste it at all
Can't you taste it
Then I looked him straight in the eye
And I said hey man
Are you gonna take a long time dyin'
No

Sometimes I think it's not my fault
It's everything but me
And sometimes it's the third time
And I drown in misery
Sometimes it's the way it is
Sometimes it ain't fair
Most times I'm the architect
Who builds a just don't care
Just don't care

Happened to me once before
Little of touch of denial
I was on my knees
I was lickin' the floor
Tryin' to reconcile

Shit out a luck looks like your fucked
(reconcile)
(I don't wanna be that man again)

Can't feel it no more
Can't you feel it
Can't taste it no more
Can't you taste it
Then he looked me straight in the eye
And he said hey man
Are you gonna be a long time dyin'
No
4. Genocya (4:46)
I'm your destructive pride
Your homegrown, goddamn genocide
The standard behind which you hide
I'm at your door, right by your side... so

Go - high
Go - higher
Go - high
Go - higher

I'm the hate, the jealousy
I can magnify the agony
The self-destructive qualities
So won't you come and go with me... and

Go - high
Go - higher
Go - high
Go - higher

My lack of tolerance nice as you please
My interference put them down at their knees

I am your hopeless, despondent
Your derelic hole
I am your genocide
The mass inflicted cyanide

I am your illness, your ailment
The hole in your soul
I am your genocide
The mass inflicted cyanide

My lack of tolerance nice as you please
My interference put them down at their knees

I am your hopeless, despondent
Your derelic hole
I am your genocide
The mass inflicted cyanide

I am your illness, the ailment
The hole in your soul
I am your genocide
The mass inflicted cyanide

Go - high
Go - higher
Go - high
Go - higher
Go - high
Go - higher
Go - high
Go - higher
Go
5. Half Past Dead (5:30)
No wasted
No wanting the can't have
Untasted
Seems everything I have

Yeah ready
Heard everything you said
I'm steady
Even though it's half past dead

Welcome to the unforgiving
Fraternity of pain where
the lines remains uncrossed
Are entertained there

Greetings from the other side
Where all has gone array here
But in all honesty takes me away
There

See your new Jerusalem
In saturated red
Commencement of the requiem
Begins at half past dead
Half past dead

Welcome to the humiliating
Theater insane where
Our daily theme
Is always inhumane here
Rebuild your shattered castles
From ashes to the sky
Pick-up your fallen icons
Where they lie,
There

See your new Jerusalem
In saturated red
Commencement of the requiem
Begins at half past dead
Half past dead

All eyes front and looking toward the sky
Better than I do
One step up if you're not afraid to die
Better than you do

Violent movement spawns brutality
Better than I do
Charging out into infinity
Better than you do

Peace comes to the war inside my head
Better then I do
Peace comes late, the clock strikes
Half past dead
6. F.U.C.T. (4:56)
[First Underground Commission on Termination]

We got the killing
You got the time
We got the making of a terminal blind

We got the risk
You got to take
We got the making of a big mistake

Got no faith
Got no reason
Got no hope
Got the treason

We got the hit
already took
Hate to tell you
But I think you're fuct

All about face
All about life
All about walking the edge of the knife
All about race
All about death
All about getting out of this mess

We got the truth
You got the hurt
We got the answer that you just insert

We are explicit
You are expossed
We are the making of the decomposed

Got no faith
Got no reason
Got no hope
Got the treason

Got the kaos
Runamuk
Bite down hard
You're about to be fuct

All about face
All about life
All about walking the edge of the knife
All about race
All about death
All about getting out of this mess

We are the day
We are the night
We are the stop sign in the road of life

We are the message
Unreturned
We are the next about to be burned

Got no faith
Got no reason
Got no hope
Got the treason

Change your mind
Change your look
Change your heart
Now you're fuct

All about face
All about life
All about walking the edge of the knife
All about race
All about death
All about getting out of this mess
All about face
7. I'm Alright (5:49)
Oh my God in blood soaked silhouette
Oh my God on the end of a bayonet
Oh my God put wings on the rhetoric
Oh my God, I'm alright

No pity, salvation or need
No more on the way
No pity, toleration or greed
This is where I lay

Yeah I'm alright
And I need to know
When I'm dead and gone
Where do I go

Jesus Christ in sun baked misery
Jesus Christ in sun drenched agony
Oh my God, why have you forsaken me
Oh my God, now who's taking care of me

No pity, salvation or need
No more on the way
No pity, toleration or greed
This is where I lay

Yeah I'm alright
And I need to know
When I'm dead and gone
Where do I go

Oh my God, in blood soaked sillouete
Oh my God, I'm alright
Oh my God, as Satan plays the minuette
Oh my God, I'm alright

No pity, salvation or need (I'm alright)
No more on the way (I'm alright)
No pity, toleration or greed (I'm alright)
This is where I lay

Yeah I'm alright
And I need to know
When I'm dead and gone
Where do I go
8. The Rip N' Tear (4:19)
You say it's raining
As you piss in my ear
You say it's pain inside
That fills you with fear

Right-right
Right-right
Right-right
Right-right

You say you had it
You can't find, it lost
You say you have it
I say gimme back my cross

Everybody movin from the right to the left
Everybody movin from the life to the death
Everybody movin from the good to the bad
Everybody movin from the happy to the sad
Everybody churnin and life ain't fair
Everybody movin to the rip n' tear

Right-right
Out of my way insanity
Right-right
Out of my really don't care
Right-right
Out of my way with your gimme-gimme
Right-right
Gonna do rip n' tear

It's right in front
And when I blink my eye
It's gone
I turn around, it turns around
And no ones standing
I catch a glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
Turn back around
And no one ever going to
belive what I saw

It knocks me down
And when I blink my eye
It kills
I crawl around
Down on the ground
With no one living
I take a hit
Into the corner of my eye
I try to stand
And no one ever going to
Belive what I saw

It's right in front
And when I blink my eye
It's gone
I turn around, it turns around
And no ones standing
I catch a glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
Turn back around
And no one ever going to
belive what I saw

Right-right
Right-right
Right-right
Right-right

Right or wrong, weak or strong
This is where we all belong
Don't you know that life ain't fair
Don't you know the rip n' tear

Everybody movin from the lick to the bark
Everybody movin from the light to the dark
Everybody movin from the right to the left
Everybody movin from the life to the death
Everybody churnin and life ain't fair
Everybody movin to the rip n' tear

Right-right
Out of my way insanity
Right-right
Out of my really don't care
Right-right
Out of my way with your gimme-gimme
Right-right
Gonna do rip n' tear
Right-right
9. Promises (4:50)
Wishing never got us what we needed
So we waited for our salvation to arrive
Then it took everything that we loved
And it left us alive

I hear you call
And I promise to you
One day, some day
The pain will go

Solitary movement meant for two
Can you hear the loneliness in silent cries
If you take everything that I love
Leave me to die

I hear you call
And I promise to you
One day, some day
The pain will go

If you take everything that I love
And you leave me here,
Leave me alive
If you take everything that I love
And I'm standing here
Waiting to die
To die

I hear you call
And I promise to you
One day, some day
The pain will go
10. Little Bit O' Murder (4:09)
Hey man
Little something to think about
Are you everything you say (hugh - hugh)
Little something to worry about baby
Are you nothing but a throwaway (hugh)
Has your clock run down man
Are you suckin' up eternity (hugh - hugh)
Little something to think about
Have you had enough,
Enough of me

In the meantime, cut me loose (cut me loose)
You call it hate
I call it fine (hey man)
In the meantime, win or lose (win or lose)
You call it sick
I call it mine (hey man)
Mine (hey man)

Little something to make you sick
We're a lot alike (hugh - hugh)
Little something to worry you to death
Get into your psych (hugh)
Can't you see us breakin' bread
Sharin' all our misery (hugh - hugh)
Little something to make you sick
You're a lot like me,
A lot like me

In the meantime, cut me loose (cut me loose)
You call it hate
I call it fine (hey man)
In the meantime, win or lose (win or lose)
You call it sick
I call it mine (hey man)
Mine (hey man)

Little bit o' murder in your house
Pocket full of fire
Bent on the desire
Of it all
Little bit o' murder

When did you self appoint, annoint
Since when do you wear the crown
(Little something to think about
There's a little bit o' murder in your house)
When did you justify or sanctify
Since when are you the down
(Little something to think about
There's a little bit o' murder in your house) (4x)

Hey man
When you think about
Do you think about me (hugh - hugh)
Hey man
When you worry about
Do you worry about me (hugh)
Hey man
When you're sick
Are you sick about me (hugh - hugh)
Hey man
Hey man, hey think about

In the meantime, cut me loose (cut me loose)
You call it hate
I call it fine (hey man)
In the meantime, win or lose (win or lose)
You call it sick
I call it mine (hey man)
Mine (hey man)

Little bit o' murder in your house
Pocket full of fire
Bent on the desire
Of it all
Little bit o' murder
Little bit o' murder
Murder
