Horrorscope Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Coma (5:23)
Sleeping with a time bomb
Rumble in my dreams
Innocence been long gone
Fall apart at the seams

Looking through the windows, walking through the doors
I can't help this feeling, I been here before
Everything is different, Everything the same
I know the rules, I played the game!

Cry out! Tell me what its gonna be!
Reach out! Is everything the same...?
Cry out! Tell me what you really see!
Reach out!

A coma steals my name...
Coma... Coma... Coma!

Wake to an explosion
Nothing seemed so real
Innocence corroding
Alone is all I feel

Reaching out to no one, knowing no one's there
Afraid to be afraid of another nameless fear
I got all the reasons, don't need no more
Blinded by illusions, locked behind the door

Cry out! Tell me what its gonna be
Reach out! Is everything the same...?
Cry out! Tell me what you really see
Reach out!

An' a coma stole my name...

Coma! Coma! Coma!

Sleeping now forever
Murdered in my dreams.
Innocence was never
Goin' to extremes.

Busting through the windows, kickin' down the doors
Standing up for me, never did before
Now I lay me down to sleep, and if I die before I wake

Cry out! Tell me what you really see
Reach out! Is everything the same...?
Cry out! Tell me what it's gonna be
Reach out! An' a coma stole my name...
Coma... Coma... Coma!

I'm outta the dive an' comin' alive.
2. Infectious (4:04)
I'm a wartime killer, I'm a man
I'm a peacetime killer
Doin' the best I can

Bless yourself with a fiery hand,
Spit on the place you stand.
Don't make amends for what you do,
Or move on your demands.
Imagination running wild!
We're all an only child...
Product of our environment
Cut blown and styled

I'm a wartime killer.
I'm a man.
I'm a peacetime killer!
Doin' the best, the best I can.

I adapt to nothing, and nothing pleases me.
I'm a loaded pistol!
Just you wait and see.

Infliction, I am here.
Infection, where do we go from here?
Inception, made it clear,
As I move into the plan...

Hey! Hey! Hey!
At birth I made a deal,
Called into the killing fields I go.

I'm a wartime killer, I'm a man
I'm a peacetime killer
Doin' the best, that I can.

I adapt to nothing, and nothing pleases me.
I'm a loaded pistol!
Just you wait and see.

Bless yourself with a fiery hand,
Spit on the place you stand.
Don't make amends for what you'll do,
Or move on your demands.
Imagination running wild!
We're all an only child...
Product of our environment
Cut blown and sty-y-y-yled.

I'm a wartime killer.
Ya know what I am.
I'm a peacetime killer!
Doin' the best, best that I can.

Ya I'm a man.
Wartime killer.
Ya man...
3. Blood Money (4:08)
Who's the one you pray to?
Who's your Jesus man?
Where you go when it's over and done even if you can't?
With bruises on your ego, personality in a sling,
Clinging to selfrighteous pity never meant a thing.

So who is your big brother?
Who's your savior man?
Just some ink on the dotted line, an X if ya can't.
See misery loves company, you'll never feel a need,
We're guaranteed a lifetime... at least until ya bleed.

Suck the life out through the eyes.
Windows to another world.
Sifting through assorted lies,
Welcome to another brand new world.

A lot of people do it,
It happens everyday.
Doubt you'll ever know it's gone, don't use it anyway.
So come on in you'll sit right down I gotta deal for you.
A matter of integrity, here's all ya gotta do

I'm not dealing with you..!
Not the one to thank,
Execution therapy,
Put that in your bank.

You're a liar!!!
(Blood money!) Liar!!!
(Due now!) Liar!!!
(Blood money!) Liar!!!

Payment due an' I'm collecting you.

I am dealing with you...!
No one here to thank!
Too much insecurity,
Put that up your bank...!

You're a liar!!!
(Blood money!) Liar!!!
(Due now!) Liar!!!
(Blood money!) Liar!!!

Payment due an' I'm collecting

I'm not dealing with you...!
No one here to thank!
Fuck you insecurity,
Put that up your bank...!

You're a liar!!!
(Blood money!) Liar!!!
(Due now!) Liar!!!
(Blood money!) Liar!!!
4. Thanx For Nothin' (4:07)
Sick and tired of the same ol' shit.
Fighting battles that I just can't win.
How can you tell me what it is you want
When you don't even know yourself?
Live your life one death at a time,
See the road, can't read the signs.
All the wrongs just can't be right,
Hear my bark for you feel my bite!

If you could only see what you wanted us to see.
If you could only be what you wanted us to be.

I ain't fallin' for the tricks the schemes, the same old lies.
When it's over cry for sympathy,
Don't ask why.

Thanks for nothin'
Yeah I said nothin'
Next time better think before you speak.

I dunno if I can take no more,
I'm baggin' it I'm out the door.
How can you say you know what I mean
as you're pissin' all over my life?
Time is precious, time is mine.
Waitin' here would just be fine.
Bless my soul, time has come,
Tide has turned! see Dick run!!!

If you could only be what you wanted us to be.
If you could only see what you wanted us to see.

I ain't fallin' for the tricks the schemes, the same old lies.
When it's over cry for sympathy,
Don't ask why.

Thanks for nothing,
It better be nothing.
Next time better think before you speak!

You never think! before you speak.
Sometimes think! before you speak.

I've been watching you.
Barely stand to look you in the face
All tolerance not popularity
There is someone here to take you place

Why don't you think! before you speak.
You never think! before you speak!

If you could only see what you wanted us to see.
If you could only be what you wanted us to be.

I ain't fallin' for the tricks the schemes, the same old lies.
When it's over cry for sympathy,
Don't ask why.

Thanks for nothing! Thanks for nothing!
Next time better think before you...
Hit the road.
5. Bare Bones (4:53)
I hear someone calling me.
Where they call from, I can see no light.
Walk through fire!
To me now!
And the fire I can't feel.

Bare bones! Bare bones!
I have walked through hell.
Now I'm back,
Stripped to the bone!
I have been to hell,
Now I'm here an' I'm taking all I need!
Bare bones!

Obstacles are in my way.
Just beyond them lies what? I don't know.
Walk through blind!
Know I'm here!
There is nothing I can't see.

Bare bones! Bare bones!
I have been to hell.
Now I'm back,
Stripped to the bone!
I have been to hell,
Now I'm back an' I'm taking all I need!
Bare bones!

Open my eyes to what I need to see.
Am I you or am I becoming me?
Life from day to day,
Turn another page.
Christened in the rain,
That turns to rage.

Washed of animosity.
Naked truth falling black or white.
You are turning!
To the light!
There is nothing I can't be.

Bare bones! Bare bones!
I have been to hell.
Now I'm back,
Stripped to the bone!
I have been to hell,
An' I'm back an' I'm taking all I want.
Bare bones!
6. Horrorscope (5:49)
Critical moments pass,
As doctrines of fools will last.
I am just trying to cope,
Into my horroscope.
Through eyes and ears they bleed,
Reciting their holy creed.
Heeding but one request,
The future is put to rest...

Bless me in darkened days,
Down to my knees I pray.
I am just trying to cope,
Within this horrorscope.
In the wake of all frustration,
I begin to loose control.

Watched as the weapons fired,
Bombs bursting in the air...

Burned in the fields of fire!
Standing in the middle of nowhere.

Watched as the weapons fired,
Baptized in fields of fire!

Well the change is here, an' the future clear.
I can feel it coming.
So full of hate, its geting late!
Yeah, I know its coming.
When all the choice turned to just one voice,
Yeah, the wind is turning.

This is your horrorscope...

Words laced with blasphemy,
Drip with sincerity.
Falling into the plan,
Like sacrificial lambs.
Hearing the words and said,
Rings like nail, to the head.
Now I can see the stars,
I know we have gone too far.

Watched as the weapons fired,
Bombs bursting in the air...
Baptized in fields of fire,
Wathched as the weapons fired.

Well the change is here, an' the future clear.
I can feel it coming.
So full of hate, its geting late!
Yeah, I know its coming.
When all your choice turned to just one voice,
Yeah, the wind is turning.
Well the change is here, an' the future clear.
I can feel it coming.
So full of hate, its geting late!
Yeah, I know its coming.
When all your choice turned to just one voice,
Yeah, the wind is turning.

This is your horrorscope.
7. New Machine (5:18)
Nailed to the cross by just words,
Crucifixion complete.
Close enough to the fire...
To feel temptation's heat.
It's gone away to taste the ground,
Replaced by the incessant sound of fear.

There's a ring in my ears,
I'm bleeding from my heart.
Far away from love...
The execution starts.
Made us what we are today,
A lonely pile of disarray.

We are the children of a new regime
We are the children of a new machine.

Mass production, thought controlled.
No I never knew my heart.
No. Never knew the love...
That made them fall apart.
It's gone away to taste the ground,
Replaced by the incessant sound we hear.

We are the children of a new regime
We are the children of a new machine
We are the children of a new regime
We are the children of a new machine

We are the children
Ya, the children
What of the children?
We are the children of the new machine.
What of the children?
We are the children of the new machine.
The new machine.
8. Frankenstein (Edgar Winter cover) (3:29)
9. Live Young, Die Free (4:12)
The distant sound of mercy ringing in my eyes.
Far from the masses fades away.
Closed my eyes and waited for the pain to pass,
Recalled a little story heard today...

Yeah, I'm feeling trapped,
So locked away,
Caught in a downward spiral...
In, into the black,
I won't be back,
Yeah I'll be here a while...

Don't need to see your face.
Don't need to hear a word you say,
Don't need to know your name,
Or why you're here...

Shadows of the past appear in front of me.
Into the masses disappear.
The sound of silence ringing for a greater good,
To this point I can't believe my ears...

Yeah, coming unwrapped,
Starting to fray.
Walking the final mile...
In, into the black,
I won't back,
Choose to be here a while...

Then I saw your face,
And I heard the words you said.
Then I recalled your name,
And why I'm here...

When I look into your eyes an' saw how much you cried,
An' I had a revelation.
The pain wouldn't pass, the scars they would last,
Into God's creation.
Blessed secrets holding me...
Then we all closed our eyes, an' laid down and sighed:

Live young, die free!

A distant chime of mercy ringing one last time.
Into the masses turns to clay...
Molded into what is now, the greater good
To close just the story yesterday...

Don't need to see your face,
Don't need to hear a word you say.
Don't need to know your name,
Or why you're here...

Then a child of a liar put his hands into the fire,
Called it discontention.
And a man with the word repeated what he heard,
And it led to mass confusion.
Blessed secrets, agony...
Then the child closed his eyes and laid down and died.

Live young, die free.
10. Nice Day...For A Funeral (6:17)
Black suits, eyes closed.
Nothing left to hear.
One mistake, blame the youth,
Crossed the line of fear.
Burn the bridges that we crossed in time,
Seemed the only way.
Not for nothing was his only crime,
A final price to pay.

Black days, loss for words.
When there's so much left to say.
Time's mine, have so much time,
Since I went away.
Back across the bridges burned,
Now you walk alone.
The lights are on the doors unlocked,
But no one is home.

I saw the last of sunshine.
I'm going back to Mother Earth.
A cry of independence,
Ends in death...

Yeah, the last of sunshine,
Oh, ya know, for what it's worth
Nice day for a funeral.

One last time to turn your back.
Don't kiss me when I go.
Don't wonder why it came to this,
You didn't want to know.
A bastard child and his misspent youth,
Yeah, he's yours and mine.
We're digging graves, not the buried truth
If only we had the time.

I saw the last of sunshine.
I'm going back to Mother Earth.
A cry of independence,
Ends in death...

Yeah, the last of sunshine,
Oh, ya know, for what it's worth
Nice day for a funeral.

Yeah, the last of sunshine
I'm going back to Mother Earth.
A cry of independence,
Ends in death...

Yeah, the last of my time
Oh, ya know, for what it's worth
Nice day for a funeral.
11. Soulitude (5:26)
Life we talk of death
Each breath come closer to out.
Of this I'm not afraid
Though I don't know what it's all about
I don't know! I don't know...

Decisions that we make,
The chances that we take,
The blindness we can't fake.
Thought I knew but now I know what it's like,
To be alone...!
I know...!

I remember here!
Thought it was a dream!
I never thought I'd come to this.
Living with the fear,
Now I know what it means
Never thought it'd, end like this!

Falling with no end...
Into what I've only done to me.
With messages to send..,
Out of what I've only done to me.

Falling with no
Calling with no
Crawling to the end.

I remember here!
Thought it was a dream!
I never thought I'd come to this.
I remember here!
Now I know what it means
Never thought it'd, end like this!

Falling with no end...
Into what I've only done to me.
With messages to send..,
Out of what I've only done to me.

I remember here!
Thought it was a dream!
I never thought I'd come to this.
Living with the fear,
Now I know what it means
Never thought it'd, end like this!

Falling with no
Calling with no
Crawling to the end.

I remember here!
Thought it was a dream!
I never thought I'd come to this.
Living with the fear,
Now I know what it means
Never thought it'd, end like this!

I remember here!
