Lost Paradise Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Intro (2:42)
2. Deadly Inner Sense (4:37)
A sea of twisted shapes
Seek salvage from this carnage
Frustration deep inside
Writhe in utmost rage
A tortuous embrace is embedded in their minds
As hands from above grasp
Emptiness they find.

Paralysed from neck down
Like fluid drinks
Pressures increase on flesh
Excruciating pain...

These mindless thoughtless fools
Corrupted in mind
Crying out for the death
Innocence they find...
The silence looms before us,
Free of trouble and strife
While bodies pile in hundreds,
Free from the gift of life.

Drown in misery
Deadly inner sense
This place of doom
a sacred shrine
eternal punishment for all time

The deadly inner sense
3. Paradise Lost (5:29)
[1] Claws of death, grips my life
Empty my mind and my knowledge is deceased
Mindless and dumb, instinct gone.

[2] Running in circles
Not knowing where my fate lies...

[3] Blinding, running through the eternal maze
Surrounded by people the same
Not knowing this place as the darkness falls above...
Will we ever see the sun deteriorate away?

[4] Feelings disappear
Your eyes stare blank
Another world to greet
Life now ends......

[Repeat verses 2 + 3]
4. Our Saviour (5:08)
[1] Kneel on the ground and pray to the Lord
But will he hear your prayers
Will hear your call,
As you sit in the church
And the madman speaks...
Listen with awe at the lies he'll preach.

[2] Only the mindless.. will listen and obey
Worldwide wars... are caused by this uproar...

[3] Pray.. to... rest... your conscience - for the sins you
have done...
Where is your god now as you're dying alone
Brutal wounds cut deep
No miracles to heal
Watch your life now fade
He's not there to help you die...

[4] Raised upon repulsive lies
From the time we were born
Driven into heads, holy laws...
Cast into a circle of preaching vomit
All decent holy people
Their conscience free
Massive neurosis and impending doom
And the holy power will be silent.

[Repeat verses 2, 3, 4]
5. Rotting Misery (5:16)
Unleashed upon man
Their poisoning brains
An empty grasp - a threat to all those sane.

The daggers poised
For shallow minds
Unheard laughs...
Disrupting all mankind

This rotting misery

[Chorus]
The beggars are all gathered
No others rule supreme...
Rotting misery

Clouded realities
Brought before us
Their pointless lives
As all their faith is lost

Morbid existence
Of these poor souls
Now must die to exist no more

[Chorus]
6. Frozen Illusion (5:21)
I lay in the darkest room,
The door is locked, at chains I grasp...
The chill runs through my bones
In panic I grief. Oh please help me die...

The walls close in on my existence

Unreal illusions re-appear
Darkness increases still...
Frozen illusion

I lay in the darkest room
As images appear once more...
The chill runs through my bones
My body is stiff as my soul departs the earth.
7. Breeding Fear (4:14)
Staring down into the depths
Subconscious has taken my life
Breathing this foul and dank air
Eyes cannot penetrate the light
No room to panic or move
I pray my death will come soon.

My sorrows are breeding on my fear.

The tombs of 1000 lie near,
Soon to diminish am I?
Lying here, minutes from my death
The nausea breeds on my fear
Calling to the victims of fate
The dead cannot answer my calls.

My body falls to the depths
And darkness has engraved my mind...
No visions or solution
Gagged for air, deeper below I sink...
8. Lost Paradise (2:08)
