Timeline Symmetry Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Timeline Symmetry (5:58)
2. Raven Humankind (7:03)
Twenty one centuries of time
Telluric plans carved in stone, re-wrote in anonymous keyboards
E-system can't decode her cries
Infection grows by holy tentacles, of a god who buys disciples

It is no future, the end of times
Raven humankind, eats the mother's eyes
Worm's nature, leeches the other's lives
Raven humankind

Devour purity... essence denial

It is no future, the end of times
Raven humankind, eats the mother's eyes
Worm's nature, leeches the other's lives
Raven humankind

Scavengers and parasites of the warm fountain of life
Consuming even the last bone
We are the dirty tiny beasts
Breeding, crawling, stealing, infecting
Raping, betraying, torturing, killing

Twenty one centuries of time
Life, love and death can be bought at market's price

It is no future, the end of times
Raven humankind, eats the mother's eyes
Worm's nature, leeches the other's lives
Raven humankind

As hungry dogs without memory we bite the hand that feeds
With holy waters unanimated by Jesus Christ
Humanity irrigates the lands to harvest ravenous still life
3. The Average Man´s Odyssey (9:19)
Same cold, same coffee, same me
The same old movement performed again
A thousand times rehearsed
Pretending all of this... had a sense

Still waiting for that change, still waiting for that dream
White bearing the burden of emptiness
Still waiting for that change, still waiting for that dream
The average man believes

Same strangers, same train, same void
Dropping hours like old papers from my pockets
Suddenly they became so necessary
Lost things are now so necessary

Still waiting for that change, still waiting for that dream
White bearing the burden of emptiness
Still waiting for that change, still waiting for that dream
The average man believes

The sequence of these days
A clock that ticks always the same
A gesture blooms, but quickly fades
Forgotten days, forgotten years

The average man's odyssey...

Silence, the only one answers. Silence, the void speaks
Days are dripping from my chalice
Timeless sands, the early death's caress
Silence, god is speaking. Silence, just empty words
A lip-synched preaching, words of stone
The old white lie: go, get your crown

The same train, watching me age. The same train, a circle trip
An endless journey, a battle lost
The script of this life: small miseries wrote in
Silence, god is speaking. Silence, just let him talk
Fighting a war no one cares about
Until death finds me lost in the crowd
4. Mars Lullaby (5:04)
You've heard about it many times before
A dead-fairies-tale that we all know

A mechanical deadly weeping
A ragged flag spreading the scent of blood
Return to that place you've never seen before
The memory of the sleeping predator...

Remembering how to forget mercy,
As ravens sings their lullaby

Hell is there for those who believe
Hell is there for the slaughtered lambs

Devoid of my old good will, devoid of all faith
Now I understand, now I see the blurry picture so clear
The end used to be near, the end is almost here

Devoid of my old good will, devoid of all faith
Now I understand, now I see the blurry picture so clear
The end used to be near, the end is already here

The swan corpse left to rot
Soon the worms will bring their truth
Dead flesh and absent spirit
The stench became so real
5. By The Cliff (8:12)
Distant light announce my silence arrival
The wind brings memories without regret
A childhood place where everything knows me
A place where nobody seems to know me

Cold sun crystals dance over raging waves
These powers deep down unseen
A fearless, reckless grazing flight
The softness of feathers, the cold of the sea

In this hidden stage I will only witness
Unable to understand these ageless words
To grab, to kill and to dissect with my hands
Trying to make mine something is not

Cold sun crystals dance over raging waves
These powers deep down unseen
A fearless, reckless grazing flight
The softness of feathers, the cold of the sea

On this last corner, by the cliff
As small and lonely as this life
A failed design made for a long lost oblivion
An old and forgotten sign for centuries rusting by the road

Trying to tell apart the worlds
Of a language that floats with the haze

While I'm still here tied to the earth
I see the habit turning into slavery
The killing comfort brings its warm and smooth death
Dying slowly as I'm longing for the imaginary

On this last corner, by the cliff
As small and lonely as this life
A failed design made for a long lost oblivion
An old and forgotten sign for centuries rusting by the road
[x2]

On this last corner I breathe the remaining air
A countdown of heart beats
All around goes on
The air, the moment, the place
They escape from my hands

The air, the moment, the place
They escape from my hands
6. This Once Long Road (5:45)
I've already eaten all the sweetest fruits
A train I didn't see pass
Didn't realize there was an ending
This ending that came a lot sooner than expected

Of this once long road, now I can see the end
All my treasures lost, all my memories fade

A whole life under the illusion, naive tales about another life
No one's gonna give it back, time this time is not on my side...

That's all it was, no replay, no second chance, no turning back
A life now built on memories just seeking comfort in the past
That's all it was, couldn't get it, couldn't catch it, could not seize it
When life parades in front of your eyes

Faith and hope provided the wicked fuel to survive
Through a blind trip towards desert and sterile lands
Then something went wrong on this absurd lifetime plan
I'm here stranded with a dream burnt by the sun

No stories of bravery to be told or to make up
I'm trying to save something out of this forgotten role
Approaching the end of the road
Facing the end of the road

That's all it was, no replay, no second chance, no turning back
A life now built on memories just seeking comfort in the past
That's all it was, couldn't get it, couldn't catch it, could not seize it
When life parades in front of your eyes...
7. Alter (5:33)
Vistas, cauces, paisaje fugitivo
Mirada que intenta y falla en permanecer
Sobre lugares de añoranza perenne
Sobre rincones de polvo y olvido

El pacto no quiere acabar
Solo has venido... solo te irás
El pacto no quiere acabar
Arrastro valijas, pierdo el camino, olvido el lugar

Una parte de una parte de mí
Quiere dormir tres eternidades
Una parte de una parte de esta vida
Ocurre en otro lugar

El pacto no quiere acabar
Solo has venido... solo te irás
El pacto no quiere acabar
Arrastro valijas, pierdo el camino, olvido el lugar
8. Zoom to the Void (5:39)
In those ripping moments
When you go down on your knees
As a death knell, night falls on you

Walls grow high around you, burying yourself deep inside
Under the surface, world forces down
What... can you see?
...Other unknown skies...

In a whole dark infinity, lifetime yearnings you left behind
Forget your loved ones, love agonizes
Out of the physical essence flies
You... you are lost in time...

Back to your mother's womb, the unborn child
Survives his first trial, neo natal problems arise
Madness lightnings
From childhood to enslavement
A life punctured by infected needles

Feel the outside life's desires, peel your aged slave skin
Fall into the abyssal dreams, straight to the bottom
Eyes wide open see nothing... close your eyes... still the same
Freefall into darkness, zoom to the void

The living dead one graduated from first hell
Beginning a new stage, about problems arise
Death lightnings
From enslavement to obliteration
Elderness slashed by toxic razors

Feel the outside life's desires, peel your aged slave skin
Fall into the abyssal dreams, straight to the bottom
Eyes wide open see nothing... close your eyes... still the same
Freefall into darkness, zoom to the void
9. Epilogo (3:58)
Un Eco de escombros
el mustio peso de la vergüenza
Los versos, los sueños, la quimera

Todo cae, todo muere
Y cómplice el tiempo me ve renunciar.
