Iconoclast Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Walls? (0:51)
2. The Crawling Mirrors (4:11)
[Lyrics: Claudio Botarro / Music: Igor Leiva]

The grey southern ghosts...again
Announce me (falling in silence)...that
The Crawling mirrors
Are coming for us.

Blinded by / their shining skin
By their colours / We're trapped helplessly

Taking away all that we have
Taking away our joys and cries

Travelling through / the endless currents
(Drifting) our best / and sweetest memories

Watch the horizon when they are gone
Watch them burning by the sun

Sardonic movements of fate

And today I make this toast
I raise my glass, and drown... and drown all my pain.
3. Elegia (6:02)
[Lyrics: Claudio Botarro / Music: Igor Leiva]

Desde que no existe el alma de mi alma
Me paso las noches cazando tormentas
Para olvidar que en el fondo no puedo olvidar
La dulce voz del silencio

Estrellas fugaces se confunden con faros
Cuando navegas perdido en el oceano de medianoche

[Chorus 1]
Naufrago en lo irreal
Cegado por la oscuridad
Y mis velas en silencio piden solo un amanecer
... hasta que vuelva la tempestad

Noche amante no me creas ingrato
Pero quisiera despertar bajo las alas del sol

[Chorus 1]

Avanzo en lo irreal
Sanando en la oscuridad
Siguiendo otros vientos hasta cazar un amanecer
Antagonista a la tempestad
4. Chaman (1:51)
5. Elixir (4:57)
[Lyrics: Claudio Carrasco / Music: Igor Leiva]

Drink of this potion brought from the night
Dark human night, your scent deep inside
Of a sea in which thoughts fly

Forgotten passions appear like stars in the night sky
Undress your skin and soil it with guilt

...and soil it with guilt...

[Chorus:]
Blessed by the moonlight
Drink this blood from... the earth

Ensure your destiny, write it with a fantasy
The pain has no limit, let it free like a bird...let it free

Wounds with each movement, scrub the hand in a rose
A soul trapped in a maze, a moment for the fire

... a moment for the fire...

[Chorus:]

In the shadows
We became gods... of flesh
.... With this blood from the earth....

Drink of this blood from the earth
6. Iconoclast (6:22)
[Lyrics: Claudio Carrasco / Music: Igor Leiva]

Cliffs of contradiction
You'll feel the fury of waves

Rocks stare at the dawn / Awaiting the tides to be praised
We're coming here, to erase thy shapes
Tonight is the night / In the calmness of the dark
We're coming here, to erase thy shapes

[Chorus:]
No plea's been heard
Rusted structures are falling
Creating a new era
In crawling sands
The icons will be torn
Creating a new era

A still picture in blue / (Underlying) forces breed
A liquid hate will come from the depths
Drowning all eternal / An ancient rage is unleashed
A liquid hate will come from the depths

[Chorus:]

All this handcrafted pain, all these pictures of suffering
My eyes can now see, but I cannot feel... and I shall not regret

[Final Chorus:]

No plea was heard
Rusted structures no longer exist
Creating a new era
In crawling sands
The icons will be torn
Creating a new era
7. She Burns Us (5:27)
[Lyrics: Claudio Carrasco / Music: Igor Leiva]

[Chorus:]
It is the nature of all things and all men
The blood has called her child for many years
And there is no way to resist her
I will crawl like a spider, small, dirty and free

On this night I will hide myself from your light
And turn loose these desires hidden under dust
Three times I will sin, three times I will deny
Only myself and the ashes of my past

As I jump into the void, this bet I have lost
The pleasure of risk in this fragile existence
I have no answers, so don't ask for regrets
...And let me dream in life...so deep...

[Chorus:]

The light gives life... but it also takes it away

She burns us with every, tick of the clock
I'm drowning in this addiction to burn with her
And the beliefs of my past life
With her and the beliefs of my past life
8. Rite (7:07)
[Lyrics & music: Igor Leiva]

These walls of stone have witnessed
How I've learned to praise the sun
Forces once spoke through me
And taught me their sacred song
Silently the stone... remembers... now

Now I'm the outcast in a time of blind spirits
But I feel the earth, I hear the earth

Somber skies fall upon us
Feel this rage... unleashed?

My story won't be heard by the withered souls that laugh
But I feel the earth, I hear the earth

Speak to me of your beliefs and I will show you my gods
They'll rule over all, as you ignore... Ignore

My flesh and soul have been tied, with every little part
Something denied by this time, somehow my instincts understand

As one with nature, like a naked child
Longing for his mother's womb
My lonely rite shall live... as long as I

These walls of stone have witnessed
How I've learned to praise the sun
Forces once spoke through me
And taught me their sacred song
9. Distances (7:16)
[Lyrics & music: Igor Leiva]

Now is your time to fade into this uncertain night
Now is your time to freeze the moments crystallized

[Pre Chorus:]
And even if I struggled with fate
You would run free and be disowned
And if the words are sounding strange
Then their meaning is clear

[Chorus:]
As the loss steals my breath
As a part of me dies
I look back
And I see the path, I will never walk again

Just sleep my friend in this garden of memories
Just sleep and keep time standing still

[Pre Chorus]
[2 X Chorus]

Trying to bring back a past already dead
I will fail... anyway
A complete circle I try to destroy
I will fail... anyway

[Pre Chorus]
[Chorus]

The distance attempts
To dissolve the memory
But in the end
These old crystals I will take to my grave
10. Impressions (5:42)
[Lyrics & music: Michel Leroy]

Between my death and infinity...

Amazed by the colours of eternity...of eternity

Into insanity's claws
So much existence is lost
So much ecstasy gone

Bow down to the forces that gave us our random shape

The eternal explosion
or the phantom statement
Man is the endless mirror
and the darkness is not so (real)

This suffering isn't haunting
for the one who knows,
for the one who is
already touching ...his gods

Fears cast the gesture of horror
Cloaked around humanity
Afraid of next step
Fear to continue

New stares emerge
A more complete state of mind
rips the one that escaped

No way out.
No way out from here
This is the new joy (The new joy which we feel)
11. Desintegraci? (6:43)
[Lyrics: Michel Leroy / Music: Michel Leroy & Igor Leiva]

Nada...ha de empezar
no hay susurros por descifrar

Ya nada de mi
puede ahora escapar
solo lo insustancial me tocara.

El padre no fue real
solo esta intensa perversa humedad.

Ya no hay nadie aqui
mas que el mundo y su piel
el nunca existio
siempre fue horror

Vuelvo al tiempo sin mi,
mas el tiempo soy yo
Desintegracion, la piel de un dolor.
Hacia donde mirar
y ver lo que sone
Ahora que olvide... sacrifique.

Las carnes de una noche inmortal,
Cuando nada es otra vez
Cuando el paraiso muere,
Muere bajo mis pies.

Noche inmortal
De todo caere
en dicha reinventando los calores de mi ser

Sepultado bajo mi sangre negra
No encuentro rastro de mi

Noche inmortal,
Cuando algo es otra vez
Cuando el paraiso muere,
Muere bajo mis pies.

Noche inmortal
De todo caere
en dicha reinventando los calores de mi ser

Lamiendo los sabores de la muerte.
12. Burnt (2:43)
[Lyrics: Claudio Carrasco / Music: Igor Leiva]

Embrace me
It's the final tragedy
What you'll find is only a piece
Of what I used to be

Can't you feel it?
It makes me vanish
There is no return
The light took my life...

... So let me burn Alone...

Let me burn alone!
13. And Thou Shall Obey (6:00)
[Lyrics: Claudio Botarro / Music: Michel Leroy & Igor Leiva]

Can't understand love through fear,
And life without the blessing
Of my birthright

So from thy heavens, built of mothers
who can't feed their own sons
I'll fall again... to drown in ecstasy...

Into this burning place
Stage of anxious flesh
Innocence and disgrace... are alive

My child releases my hand
And wondered, he runs to the sweet fountain
Quenching his thirst,
Pure child

Nailed to a well learned ignorance,
You cannot touch paradise

Your child releases your hand
And faraway he runs from the sweet fountain
Ashamed of himself,
Poor child

Living your life in this maze
Like an echo or a slave

Inside your soul you refuse to see
Misery is disguised as salvation

Omnipotent sadism, life and death in fear
... And thou shall obey

Omnipresent voyeurism, extinct privacy
... And thou shall obey

Omniscient tyranny, the bonfire of all dreams
... And thou shall obey
