Day of Reckoning Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Day of Reckoning (2:43)
Now take your last look the world's about to fall
Your efforts are useless to move a brick wall
You didn't seem to listen to a thing I say
I think that today will become your day
So open your eyes to which path to take
The man's gunna laugh as your resistance he breaks
Butchers and cowards they've been running your life
This day is for reckoning if you wish to survive
Breakdown
So why don't you open your eyes to which path to take
The devil will laugh as your resistance he breaks
Please be strong stretch your arms down at length
He'll dance in the flames he thrives on your strength
2. Evil Seed (4:39)
Frustrating thoughts within my brain
There's not too much that's keeping me sane
Black cloud keeps hanging over my head
She's got me in her grips I've been misled
Can't get her out of my way of thinking
It's come to an end but I'm still sinking
Voices in my head are telling me to change
My soul is screaming our god's name
Sitting and waiting for feelings to pass
They go nowhere they last and last
Living in my world of complete solitude
No one can see what I'm going through
My mental wounds not wanting to heal
Tears fill my eyes I drop to kneel
Voices in my head still telling me to change
My soul is screaming our god's name
All right now
Won't you listen
Taking my time trying to get by
Living in the past dwelling on ties
Trying to overcome what she did to me
Left me behind after planting her seed
Her evil seed
Planted in me
Now I know just what it's like
Got in too deep and now I pay
Setting my course for the future
Now I've learned your wicked ways yeah
3. Broken Vows (4:38)
Taking my chances through madness
Trying to leave my problems behind
Paying off my debts to sadness
I've got better things on my mind yeah
Winning my race with emotion
Can't waste more time falling down
Pulled under like waves in the ocean
Host myself but now I'm found yeah
Heatwaves of anger
Slowly burning down
Facing all my slander
Breaking all the vows yeah
Had given up the truth for lies
I've seen happinness come and go
Finding things that money can't buy
But your future is all in your soul yeah
Listen
Time slipping through your fingers
Tomorrow has become today
And as the image lingers
Of hell on earth to pay yeah
4. When the Screams Come (3:43)
The time that you take to find out life
Is not usually worth itself
Developin' a real "How to get by"
And polishing all it's wealths
Have you ever felt pain
When the screams come you know
That you're dying in vain
Right
Don't say I didn't warn ya
You had it coming anyway
Now it's just a revelation
You pushed me too far
AND NOW YOU HAVE GOT TO PAY
Why don't we look at all the fools
Witness their greedy drools
You've entered hell I guess and weren't so cool
NOW SATAN MAKES YOUR RULES
5. Burning Savior (9:08)
Your lay your head down to sleep
And pray to your lord your soul he keeps
Hope that he answers all your pleas
A sinner like you ON YOUR KNEES
How long can you keep pretending
You can't live by the rules you're bending
All your prayers do no good
When you don't do what you should
LUCIFER LIVES it's no illusion
Your mind is in confusion
Thoughts denied all come true
When he takes your soul from you
Will you writhe and take his turn
But you have doubts not born to burn
Or will you choose the right hand turn
Goat of mendes standing by firm
No time left to pray and kneel
Open wounds will never heal
Your beliefs I'll always spill
Shut them down and now you're ill
Tears on your pillow so ashamed
Of what's going on inside your brain
Thoughts above becoming maimed
Take the plunge play the game
You will write and take his turn
I have no doubts you were born to burn
No one chooses the right hand turn
Goat of mendes standing by firm
You're walking through darkness
No need to look behind
The gates are open for you
You're welcome here inside
No more listening to reason
No more asking why
Just accept what you are given
No more guilt ridden sighs RIGHT
Time turning tolling bells
You're learning what I tell
Deceiving but not lies
Retrieving alibis
I laugh hearing you cry
Fire bath you want to die
Sizzling flesh and burning cells
Living dead for the god of Hell
You lay your head down to sleep
And pray to your lord your soul to keep
Hope that he answers all your pleas
A sinner like you ON YOUR KNEES
6. Madman (4:18)
The talk of night is nearing
As the madman makes his rounds
The city lights appearing
Into surrounding towns
All the while I'll love you
But leave you as you sleep
For I have unfinished business
Right now I'm so weak
The cops are out patrolling
The new night has brought the word
Announcements from the city
It's brutal so I've heard
All the while I'll love you
But leave you as you sleep
For I may not see tomorrow
Right now I"m so weak
A lady saw the traces
She said of blood upon the grounds
But after all their searching
Nothing could be found
All the while I"ll love you
But leave you as you sleep
For I may not see tomorrow
Right now I'm so weak - oh no
I got home at midnight
No sleep I had to tell
Could I reach those heavens
Or was I born to serve him so well
Next thing I discovered
I awoke in the dark room
Clock struck five knife at my side
Your life had met with doom yeah
So as the new day opens
The sun is cast with gloom
And as the cover closes
I cry beside your tomb
Though I'll always love you
I couldn't stand the pain
Now it's time to take another life
A madman dies in vain
7. Wartime (5:22)
Watching, Waiting
Time at hand has come to a close lately
Hating, Killing
Peae it comes to those who are willing
Today, Sorrow
Eye for an eye and that's the law of tomorrow
Distant, Nearer
Wartime clear as your face is in the mirror
Getting clearer
Deadly, leaders
I don't think that that will make believers
Burns, Lashes
Blistering heat as the people fall to ashes
Atomic, Winter
Ice cold hell on earth to non repenters
Silence, After
All caused by elected deadly bastards
You bastards! Yeah
Countries in chaos
The troops on the way
Rabid mouths giving their orders today
Bodies of loved ones there they lay
Wartime
Cold time
Children in the streets
Death on your breath and blood on your hands
There is no time to weep
Looking out for number one machine guns earn your keep
Keeping watch over your shoulder life it doesn't come cheap
No
Countries in chaos
Chaos
Chaos
Chaos
