A Shedding of Skin Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. Intro (1:25)
2. Mortuary Nightmare (2:54)
Certain a nightmare
Has you inprisoned, you can not wake
Terrible blackness
Nothing at all to be seen
Suffering - convulsion
Trembling bones - insanity


Crying out
Pain is just a preacher from the dark
Physical blow
Dreadful fear has overcome the soul


Flame spat out into the rainy night
Walls transformed in mind to bloody creatures
Loneliness surrounds the dying victim
Clouds of death announce the end of life


It seemed to be a mortuary


Death condemned us all
Into a strange dimension


We live to be mortality
We all shall die and then we'll fly


(Chorus)
Mortuary nightmare
Mortuary nightmare
Mortuary nightmare


(Repeat first verse)


(Repeat Chorus)


(Repeat first verse)


(Repeat second verse)
3. A Shedding of Skin (3:39)
Born into a world of sickness and hate
Ruined by the feelings of guilt and disgrace


Tortured through our wretched lives
Praying for our sacrifice
Screaming til we go insane
Shrouded in the grip of pain


Hoping for a lifetime that can't be obtained
In a world that teaches nothing but pain


(Repeat second verse)


A point of life for the shedding of skin
Strip away the garments of sin
We loose our flesh now our souls can win
Standing naked our lives begin


(Chorus)
A Shedding of skin (Repeat 3 times)


Through the pain we're forced to take
The outer shell begins to break
And in death our spirits rise
A new beginning to our lives


Dripping blood we're eaten by our leprosy
The jungle destroys us with evil we can't see


(Repeat fifth verse)
4. Face Fear (3:18)
Night so full of eyes
So full of lies
Cold as a cemetary
Time of enemies
Feel
Misanthropy


Bells ringing in our ears
Walking all the fears
Which were long forgotten
Time of enemies
Feel
Agony


I can't face fear!


Not now! Not tomorrow! Never!
My saviour: a latin name
Slowly the sun rises
At least in my tortured mind
I fly up, higher, to the sky for hours
Till pain brings me back


Back to reality


It was my own fault
The bad result
Of an experiment
Time of enemys
Feel
Misanthropy


Could time be turned back
back to the right track
I would return newborn
Time of enemies
Still
Feeling hope


Face Fear (Repeat 5 times)
5. Retribution in Darkness (3:37)
As the moon begins to rise
Evil comes snatching out my eyes
Bloody dreams start to terrorize


(Chorus)
Retribution in darkness
Torn apart in my dreams
Retribution in darkness
Homicide in my sleep


Feeling for what can't be seen
Step by step my thoughts become obscene
Pleding for an end tonight
Til the evils returns my sight


(Repeat Chorus)


Feel the picture of sadness
Pull me to the edges of madness
Lost in a nocturnal abyss
Slave to our feelings of sadness


(Repeat Chorus)


Feeling for what can't be seen
Step by step my thoughts become obscene
Pleding for an end tonight
Till the evilness returns my sight


(Repeat Chorus)
6. Doomed to Failure (3:13)
Future formed by will of man
Nothing like a word "godgiven"
Everything that's said and done
Can cause deadly chain-reaction


Future in the hand of few
Hands of a "divine" minority
Their own interests, that's their game
And you're nothing but a name


Doomed to failure - Walking blind
Doomed to chaos - Stop to think
Doomed to death - till the last breath


The world is dying, screams for help
Poisoned, raped and violated
We can stop the murderous game
You know you're more than just a name


The people sleep, they don't care
But the future's made today
You and me, we are the pilots
fasten your seatbelts, we take of!


Doomed to failure - Just say "No"
Doomed to chaos - Start to care
Doomed to ruin - Open your eyes
Doomed to death - It's not too late!


(Repeat second verse)
7. Thy Will Be Done (3:45)
Helping hands
Guiding hands
Trust's a feeling warm as life itself
Masterplan
A leading man
All minds changed into one direction


Trumpets - Standarts


A million eyes
Gearing eyes
Loud speeches roaring yet calm as prayers
Masterplan
A leading man
All minds changed into one direction


Power - Aggression


Thy will be done
Thy will be done


Masterplan
A leading man
All minds changed into one direction


Forward!
Attack!


Thy will be done
Thy will be done


Thousands die
Millions die
The end of yourself your own mistake


History - A spinning wheel


Thy will be done
Thy will be done
8. Whom Gods Destroy (4:41)
Sudden aggressive outbreak
Fading foggy reality
A mighty thought called freedom
Changes the true identity


Impulsive lust for power
A deadly force mixed with hate
The glory of the moment
Nightmare of the universe


(Repeat first verse)


(Repeat second verse)


(Chorus)
Whom gods destroy - Just and wise
Whom gods destroy - For spreading lies
Whom gods destroy - The sentence: death
Whom gods destroy - With their wrath


To all wulfs: Attack!
Forward, spread the word of pain
Feelings, so invincible
Self deceit's a deadly trap


In the end it's over
The evil side has lost again
Aggressor's fallen and beaten
Thanx to holy cleverness


(Repeat Chorus)
9. Necropolis (1:09)
10. Tantalus (4:08)
Tantalus son of Zeus
Wellwisher of immortal gods
Tried to exceed their imense wisdom
Invited them to an evil supper
Served his guests the slaughtered son
They recognized the malicious plan


Now - He's condemned to a life in
Hell - Got no chance to appeal for
Grace - Live and suffer forever in
Pain - To atone his stupid crime


Tortured with inhuman hunger
Feel the agony of starvation
Beeing alone with ripping spasms
Tantalus torment
You can't escape
Cruelest kind of torture
You will never die


Imprisoned by the flowing stream
Afraid inside to die of thirst
See the drink you cannot reach


Now - Suffer in
Hell - Without
Grace - Feel the
Pain - For your crime


Tantalus torment
You can't escape
Cruelest kind of torture
You will never die


Growing fear destroys the mind
Feel the boulder above the head
Thoughts go fast please make me dead


Now - He's condemned to live in
Hell - Got no chance to appeal for
Grace - Live and suffer forever in
Pain - To atone his stupid crime
11. Death Comes Soon (3:26)
Your whole lifetime
Walking near the deadline
Think about your fate
Open mindlocked gates


The cruelty of nature
Enveloped death of creatures
Presence of birth and death
Require a bloody mess


Life is hard, you're dying fast
You can't oppose your destiny
Hands of time are passing by
How long can you live to die


Master - Glory
Servant - Shame


The existance of our earth
Is nothing to the universe
What you'll do and if you last
Is just puke in the dust
Death comes soon there's no doubt
Nothing to think so deep about


(Repeat second verse)


Life is hard, you're dying fast
You can't oppose your destiny
Hands of time are passing by
How long can you live to die
Try to live from day to day
You've got no other chance anyway
You should not lose your will to live
You've got a lot of things to give


Your whole lifetime
Walking in the deadline
Think about your fate
Open mindlocked gates


(Repeat second verse)
12. Unleashed Terror (3:49)
Terror daily seen on screen
Emotions lost, is it real or a dream
Neurosis drives the man insane
Sickness that we cannot blame
We are not entagled in
To think about it gives us no sin
Unknown victims that were killed
They don't need our full compassion


Violence on the boulevards
Ripped apart by bullet shards
Killers in the neighborhood
Raping girls to feel good


(Chorus)
Unleashed terror spread
Soon you will be dead


Bloody gangs all rule the streets
Turning foes to strips of meat
As our bodies hit the ground
Now our saviour can't be found
Terrorists born from the screen
Fill our lives with broken screams
Helping them to realize
Secrets of our own demise


(Repeat Chorus)


Bloodbath on the movie screen
Got the people turning mean
Hoping that before they die
They will kill the other guy


Rage to kill
Blood will spill
Feel my pain
Crush the flame
Filled with hate
It's too late
Mad man's screams
Sweat soaked dreams
End is here
Face your fear


(Repeat Chorus)


(Repeat third verse)
