Architect of Fear Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level
1. Architect of Fear Intro (1:21)
(instrumental)
2. Architect of Fear (4:01)
Lord forgive me I know not what to do
You stand there mocking me
You don`t know what I`ve been through
Get up, get out
You hear the sound
You see the light
Don`t you know the end`s in sight

Riding apart your future past will disappear
Destroyer of your hopes you stand before the
Architect of fear
The architect of fear

Pain/pleasure - you`re not fooling me
Your agony is like an open book and you belong to me
Shut up, sit down
And wait, your turn
You give, we take
There`s no forgiving your mistake

Riding apart your future past will disappear
Destroyer of your hopes you stand before the
Architect of fear
The architect of fear
Riding apart your future past will disappear
Destroyer of your hopes the architect of fear

All your words of wisdom fall on stony ground
Said you`d lead the faithful and make them realise
But you lied

Trusted you implicitly, every word and deed
Said that you`d unburden me and make them realise
But you lied

Raw power, tears into my soul
You stand there mocking me
Obliteration is your goal

Riding apart your future past will disappear
Destroyer of your hopes the architect of fear

Riding apart your future past will disappear
Destroyer of your hopes you stand before
The architect of fear
3. Disciple (4:03)
Come to my side, give me your hand
It`s time that you entered our world
The power we hold, for you will unfold
As long as we keep you alive

Just pledge alliegance
And keep the faith
Disciple
Disciple
Kneel and pray

Blood of my blood, flesh of my flesh
We are now one and the same
Live by the sword, you`ll die by the sword
Nothing of you will remain

Just pledge alliegance
Never forget
Disciple
Disciple

Bleeding - your life
Stealing - your future
Robbing - you blind
You cannot see

Take what was yours, make this thing mine
Banish your memory today
Holding the torch, wielding the axe
No-one can stand in our way

To make my future
I kill the past
Disciple
Disciple
4. Got the Devil (4:39)
Look in the mirror
Tell me do you like what you see
What you`ve done to your body and soul
All of the changes you put me through
Like a fool I was blinded
What can I do

No point running, no point hiding
Nowhere to go, you can`t run from yourself
No point crying, no point lying
Over and over again

Got the devil, got the devil inside you
Ain`t nothing that you can do
Got the devil, got the devil inside you

Look in the mirror, emptiness stares back
As cold recognition floods into your mind
All of the changes, I was so blind
I was running from myself, losing my mind

No point running, no point hiding
Nowhere to go, you can`t run from yourself
No point crying, no point lying
Over and over again

Got the devil, got the devil inside you
Ain`t nothing that you can do
Got the devil, got the devil inside you

I`m getting weaker, he`s getting stronger
Don`t know if I can hold on

No point running, no point hiding
Nowhere to go, you can`t run from yourself
No point crying, no point lying
Over and over again
5. Part of the Machine (3:59)
Untouchable, intractable
Completely in command
Your word is law
And no-one here
Has dared to make a stand

Surround yourself with your own kind
Cast out the other fools
Corruption sets the currency
And violence sets the rules

You think you got me

I`m gonna stay free
I just don`t want to be
Part of the machine - machine

Heretics, unbelievers
Excommunicate
Disagree and raise your voice
And you will seal your fate
But I will take no more of you
Your parasitic world
I`ll make you fall by your own hand
There`ll be no need for future plans
6. Under the Skin (5:27)
Think you got the answer, all in black and white
Insulate and segregate the darkness from the light
Take a look around you
Think you got it right you got it wrong
Locked in a mask of pain
You say they`re all to blame
Never to break the chain
You know that we`re really all the same
Under the skin

Running from the future, living in the past
Iron grip is weakening how much longer can this last
Take a look around you
Power that you hold will disappear

Locked in a mask of pain
You say they`re all to blame
Never to break the chain
You know that we`re really all the same
Under the skin

What of your master plan
Strangled by your own hand
Man against brother man
You know that we`re really all the same
Under the skin
Under the skin

Crosses burning, no-one learning
There is no turning back
Tear down your kingdoms of anger and hatred
Your whole world is under attack
Perceptions are twisted, truth is resisted
Fighting to hold back the night
Bigotry and injustice
When are you gonna see the light

Locked in a mask of pain
You say they`re all to blame
Never to break the chain
You know that we`re really all the same
Under the skin
7. White Hot Anger (5:31)
At the sound of the hell
In the space of a heartbeat
There`s no telling why
Reinforcing the point
Slowly sharpen the razor

Edge of night is falling
Answers will be found
Without warning

Losing my cohesion, control slips away
Retribution - judgement day

White hot anger, white hot anger
Tearing me up, ripping my heart
Burning

Think the end is at hand, got the future all planned
There`s no turning, denying the truth
Inch by inch, one by one, soon they all will be gone

Edge of night is falling
Answers will be found
Without warning

Gaining domination, losing sanity
Violence burns inside of me

White hot anger, white hot anger
Tearing me up, ripping my heart
Burning

No explanation
Your realisation
My destination
To let you survive my attack

White hot anger, white hot anger
Tearing me up, ripping my heart
Burning
8. Can't Run & Hide (2:48)
You want satisfaction
You want to make a deal
Waste your life
Living in a world that`s totally unreal

You - you can run but can`t hide
You - you can`t run and hide
Run and hide

Now you`re on the street
Taking it day by day
Using every angle
But no-one believes a word you say

You - you can run but can`t hide
You - you can`t run and hide
Run and hide

Catch yourself falling
Deep in the crack
Hunger is calling
Twisting the knive
In your back
9. Blind Leading the Blind (5:03)
On the border between ignorance and fear
Cross the thin red line
Threaten everything that we hold dear

All for the good of the human race
Everybody`s got to be put in their place
Why should we listen
Why should we listen to the

Blind leading the blind
Closing their minds
Leaving us over the edge
Blind leading the blind
Closing their minds
Leading us into nowhere

On a deadline to strip away the prize
No turn unstoned
Won`t you open up those jaundiced eyes
All for the good of the human race
Torture with a savage grace
Why should we listen
Why should we listen to the

Blind leading the blind
Closing their minds
Leaving us over the edge
Blind leading the blind
Closing their minds
Leading us into nowhere

On a deadline to strip away the prize
Cross the thin red line
And we`ll have nothing left except your lies
10. Relentless (3:49)
Broken down
Your defense is to attack
Drag yourself back on the track

No hesitation
Cut off your lifeblood
No reason given
Pure hatred directed
Relentless

Built up cut down
Stronger than steel
Your nightmare becoming real

No hesitation
Cut off your lifeblood
No reason given
Pure hatred directed
Relentless

Steel on steel
Man destroying man
Pain unreal
Endless torment
11. Just Let Me Go (6:08)
I grow weary of your words
To me their mysteries have been unfuried
Shadows closing in
Try to break out of the fight
Running from the light
Just let me go into the night
Let me get away from here
Just let me go into the night
Let me fly

Shattered hopes and broken dreams
Scattered on the shore
I don?t need you anymore
Leave you far behind

Just let me go into the night
Let me get away from here
Just let me go into the night
Let me fly

Shattered hopes and broken dreams
Scattered on the shore
I don?t need you anymore
Leave you far behind

Just let me go into the night
Let me get away from here
Just let me go into the night
Let me fly

Just let me go into the night
Let me fly
12. Heart Attack (3:52)
Power, glory, you had it all
One of the people and you answered the call
Don?t try to tell you didn`t know
If you had any guts you`d get the hell up and go

Rising power takes you to the top
Rising power no way that you`re gonna stop

Heart attack
One way ticket going on the rack
Heart attack

Caught in the act, a real surprise
They know the truth, the camera never lies
You say entrapment, I know the game
You think you`re right but you`re completely insane

Rising power takes you to the top
Rising power no way that you`re gonna stop

Heart attack
One way ticket going on the rack
Heart attack

Rising power takes you to the top
Rising power no way that you`re gonna stop

Heart attack
One way ticket going on the rack
Heart attack
13. Sold Down the River (3:52)
Running from the future
Hiding in today
Consequences obvious
But no-one`s getting in your way

Sold me down the river
Take a look and see
Sold me down the river
There`s nothing left for me

Slash and burn your birthright
Building to destroy
Going on a one-way ride
It`s self-inflicted genocide

Sold me down the river
Take a look and see
Sold me down the river
There`s nothing left for me

Who wants the world ?
Take a good hard look around you

Buried in your wasteland
Chocking on your air
No deposit, no return
No solution - do you care ?
Sold me down the river
Take a look and see
Sold me down the river
There`s nothing left for me
