10 Years in Rage Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level 퀴트린
1. Vertigo (3:35)
Look into my eyes and sink deeper
Look into my eyes
Drown into my will like a sleeper
Drown into my eyes
Now you feel as light as a feather
Leave it all behind
Strip your mind of all that encaged you
Forget about the time

And from the first sight to the last
The world is tumbling into vertigo

I can lead you, ways to explore you
Ways you'd never find
I can make you mine if I want to
You'd make up my mind
Feel these healing hands
Eyes of fire, magic pendulum
Makes you dizzy at first sight
Now my time has come

Oh, something touched you deep inside
Oh, take hold of a distant light
Oh, hypnotised, feels like vertigo
2. She Killed And Smiled (4:03)
All the years we joined our lives
We did never regret
Our decisions and the way
That we kept our heads

When I needed you the most
In my hour of pain
I awoke the rudest way
My belief was in vain

In you, as I tell you weren't there
Didn't catch my fall, oh no
Now you've killed all I had

Wrath is burning in my mind
Why can't you take it back
No excuses, no regrets
You just broke my back

No, you as I tell you weren't there
Didn't catch my fall, oh no
Now you've killed all I had

She killed and smiled
She killed and smiled
What a beautiful death you brought, my child

All the years we joined our lives
We did never regret
Our decisions and the way
That we kept our heads

When I needed you the most
In my hour of pain
I awoke the rudest way
My belief was in vain

Oh, you turned your back, shut your mouth
Didn't had a word of trust
Now you've killed all I had

She killed and smiled
She killed and smiled
What a beautiful death you brought, my child

Oh, you as I tell you weren't there
Didn't catch my fall, oh no
Now you've killed all I had

You turned your back, shut your mouth
Didn't had a word of love
Now you've killed all I had

She killed and smiled
She killed and smiled
What a beautiful death you brought, my child
3. Destination Day (5:08)
Read in the Bible what's written there'll one
Day come true 'bout the end of the world and
All life and all things that we knew
The reaper is sharpening his scythe
This is the end of your body
And day will be night

The sun will fade its light away
The good will go, the bad must stay

On the destination day
When all life is blown away
On the destination day
There is no more use in praying

Nuclear power will soon
Bring all mankind to fall
They destroy all their land just for cash
And they don't care at all
Ashes to ashes dust to dust
Your body is covered with lava
Torn up from Earth's crust

The sea will overflow the land
And you will die then hand in hand

On the destination day
When all life is blown away
On the destination day
There is no more use in praying
4. Take My Blood (4:16)
People talked about this man
That he could walk on water and
That he would be a healer who could
Make the blind ones see again

He never told 'em lies
Though he took them by surprise
"I'll offer you the truth, so you can
Take my blood, believe or not
And you'll see, the Word is me"
He did the only thing he knew
But what, the fuck, was he supposed to do?

People talked about this man
That he'd be the Messiah and
He told them to feel love but they
Just nailed him the cross instead

He wasn't real surprised
'Cause he unmasked their lies
"I'll offer you the truth, so you can
Take my blood, believe or not
And you'll see, the Blood is me
Take my blood, I'm not a god
And you'll see, it's only me"
He did the only thing he knew
But what, the fuck, was he supposed to do?

He was the very first to prove
This world's too blind to see the truth
He did the only thing he knew
But what, the fuck, was he supposed to do?

People wrote about this man
'Most every single word and then
They founded a church and made their law
In his name they still slay the poor

They only tell you lies
It would take him by surprise
"I'll offer you the truth, so you can
Take my blood, believe or not
And you'll see, the Blood is me
Take my blood, I'm not a god
And you'll see, it's only me"

He was the very first to prove
The world's too blind to see the truth
He did the only thing he knew
You know, the fuck
What you're supposed to do!
5. No Sign Of Life (7:28)
Oh Lord Jesus, come down from your cross
See what's going on, see what's going on
And meanwhile your land is getting lost
Take your brother home, he is dead and gone

The house is burning, the man stopped turning
Compromising, paralysing, what a drag

He has held his hand wide open
But his neighbor left it out
Long forgotten wounds break open
I can't help you watching out
I have seen no sign of life

Hey, you soldier, spare your sister's life
Don't turn out the light, don't you be afraid
Don't leave this land mine here in our street
This is not a job, killing people's not a job

Man is burning, the world stopped turning
Terrorizing, compromising not at all

He has held his hand wide open
But his neighbor left it out
Long forgotten scars break open
I can't help you watching out
I have seen no sign of life
6. Submission (3:50)
Shoot down the helpless - That's nothing new
But I ain't gonna be oppressed by you
Mister ruler - You bathe in blood
But you won't get mine, I swear by god

See all this dying
Hear all this crying

Submission

Why do you wonna be always right
There's no other way but to be on your side
But there ain't no way to wipe out free will
It'll keep on growing when you try to kill it

I won't surrender
Return to sender

Submission

Throw me in the dungeons
You won't get me down - No you won't
Call me what you want now
I will get revenge - Sweet revenge

Shoot down the helpless - That's nothing new
But I ain't gonna be oppressed by you
Mister ruler - You bathe in blood
But you won't get mine, I swear by god

No, you won't get me
See what you've set free

Submission
7. The Unknown (4:44)
People running same old ways
See, tradition rules this place
Though it may be sometimes good I say
Mostly there is no real sense
Maybe a kind of sentimentality
The reason's lost so long ago

I don't want to be
Like my mind's not free
No, I'll choose the new and unknown

No way out, no way to run
Oh, from the unknown

Everything's in constant change
Try to build your mental range
If you want to grow and reach your size
Fear has killed what reason bore
A policy that keeps you torn
But security's not all that counts

I don't want to be
Like my mind's not free
No, I'll choose the new and unknown

No way out, no way to run
Oh, from the unknown

A hundred times it passed me by
A hundred times I felt alive
8. Dangerous Heritage (4:10)
A dangerous heritage they've left behind for us
So we meet our death before time
For our children, they can take the rest
But there's not much that we've saved in the past

Take these conditions, the memories fade
Choose a position between love and hate
Alternate lifestyle - A wish to escape
Travel this planet before it's too late

Where do we go? Who want's to know?

Dangerous heritage - Failures strike back
On your deathbed feel the grip 'round your neck
Dangerous heritage - You can't disclaim
Curse it whenever it hammers your brain

A dangerous heritage they've left behind
For us so we'll find no peace for all time
Talking and talking but then speaks the gun
Until the most senseless battle is won

When people's nation counts more than their lives
Then something's wrong in their heads for all time
We transfer our views from father to son
Ain't it our choice to wipe out what is wrong?

Where are we now? Who want's to know?

Dangerous heritage - Failures strike back
On your deathbed feel the grip 'round your neck
Dangerous heritage - You can't disclaim
Curse it whenever it hammers your brain
9. Prayers Of Steel '94 (6:08)
Lay me on an anvil, oh Lord
And forge me in a crowbar
Let me pry young virgin souls
Give 'em strength somehow

Lay me on an anvil, oh Lord
And forge me in a spike
Drive me in the wasted hearts
To straighten out their lifes

Let me be your weapon, oh lord
Fight for truth real hard
Let me roar with all your force
Fight for you and guard

Let me be your clearest spirit
Hold your temple high
From the darkest souls, so deep
To the blackest night

All your wisdom give me, oh Lord
Teach me prayers of steel
Give me strength and give me power
Give me prayers of steel
10. The Blow In A Row (Medley) (7:46)
No way out - Suicide
No way out - Suicide

Help me, I must reach the border
I run from the keepers of order
They have locked me up just for nothing

Help me I'm down by law
Help me I'm down by law
Watch out, they're at your door
Help me, I'm down by law

Autumn - The time of darkness and decay
Life's running shorter day by day

Winter - Has gripped the land in cold caress
He's all alone and deeply depressed, she's dead

Don't you fear the winter, I will keep you safe
And warm
Don't you fear the winter, nothing's gonna
Do you harm
Don't you fear the winter, I will keep you safe
And warm
Don't you fear the winter, come with me
There'll be no harm

Flying high, setting signs
We got the future in our veins
But still a long way to go

All we know has lost its size
If you're looking down from space
Your problems are unreal at one blow

We are the only truth?
How can we be so smug
Like a child playing God...

I wish I knew
Is it still far to go - Invisible horizons
What is behind
The picture in my mind - Invisible horizons

I'm just waiting for the moon to come and set me free
And I'm just waiting for moonlight and then my eyes can see
I'm just waiting for the moon to come and set me free
Because the moonlight can release me from my misery

Enough is enough - You can control
Enough is enough - Those who don't know

Faster - This world is heading straight into a big disaster
Tell me, when will it reach its end?
Bigger - When moneymakers stamp our souls with technology
Believe me, this got to reach an end
All this misery in our minds will break free, you will see...

Since a while I thought 'bout leaving here
I can see no way to get it clear
Under you I feel misunderstood
In this respectable neighbourhood

Hey, don't look for me no more
'Cause I won't be coming home

I'm just a solitary man
I'm gonna leave you now alone
Well, I'm a solitary man
I feel so strange here, do you know?

Nevermore - Never evermore...
