Slaves to the Grave Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Poltergeist (6:01)
I am the paranoia in your head
I am the thing underneath your bed
I am the killer that never gets caught
I am the fear that cannot be fought

All of your nightmares rolled into one
The terror I bring you cannot be undone
Tormenting your life I'm back very night
Malevolent force I'm your Poltergeist

Upon my arrival the temperature drops
Incorporeal being that cannot be stopped
My villainous visions eat into your brain
Torture unending I drive you insane

All of your nightmares rolled into one
The terror I bring you cannot be undone
Tormenting your life I'm back very night
Malevolent force, I'm your Poltergeist

When I appear
You're gripped with fear
Immortal blight
The Poltergeist

I am darkness and I am despair
You're never alone because I'm always there
Living in fear for the rest of your life
Of all the things that go bump in the night

All of your nightmares rolled into one
The terror I bring you cannot be undone
Tormenting your life I'm back very night
Malevolent force I'm your Poltergeist

When I appear
You're gripped with fear
Immortal blight
The Poltergeist
2. Rain of Ruin (4:20)
Man kills man since time began
From Cane and Able to Son of Sam
We kill for power we kill for greed
We kill sometimes just to watch 'em bleed
We lust for blood and wealth and land
Enough to kill our fellow man
We go to war, cause genocide
In civilized homicide

Sticks and stones may break their bones
But tanks and bombs destroy their homes
So pick a target far away
And live to kill another day
Science fiction is now science fact
We've gone to far, no turning back
We've picked a fight that can't be won
Oh my God, what have we done?

Chorus:
Drop the bomb - Death from above - Rain of Ruin
Vaporize - Unleashing Hell as it hits the ground
Drop the bomb - Death from above - Rain of Ruin
Say goodbye - watching the world as it all falls down

All falls down

The keys are turned, the sequence starts
Countdown to the missile launch
Human life is expendable
Projected losses acceptable
Warheads streak across the sky
Mushroom clouds and millions die
The line is crossed and all is lost
A final global holocaust

Chorus

All falls down
All falls down
All falls down
3. Flesh for Flies (3:36)
You are my victim, my helpless prey
And you won't live to see another day
I have the tools to do the job
I'll hang you on a hook and gut you like a hog

Meat's meat and a man's gotta eat
You better get out of the kitchen if you can't stand the heat
I'll grind your bones, I'll eat your soul
I'll use your skull for my dinner bowl

You're food for worms
You're flesh for flies - Flesh for Flies!

You're food for worms
You're flesh for flies - Flesh for Flies!

You're food for worms
You're flesh for flies - Flesh for Flies!

Flesh for Flies!

I am the lord of the harvest
I'll eat your flesh, I'll wear your skin
I am only getting started
And I will kill and kill and kill and kill again

You're food for worms
You're flesh for flies - Flesh for Flies!
4. The Infected (3:51)
I came without warning, apocalypse plague
Reports were horrific but details were vague
The told us the dead were returning to life
Infecting the living with pestilent bits

Ravaging
Pandemic
Infected

Ravaging
Pandemic
Infected

Though they are dead they're no slaves to the grave
Relentless, they hunt for the flesh that they crave
Burn down to ashes and cut off their heads
Sole means of death for what's already dead

The Infected
5. Blood Bath (6:34)
Slaughter in the nation running high
20 thousand yearly forced to die
America leads the murder game
What do they do it for pleasure or fame?
Men no one deem insane
Crave only blood and pain
A twisted mind can snap anytime
You could fall victim of a lethal crime
Hiding hate with smiling faces

Lucas appeared normal to me
Gein was a pillar of Society
Williams killed children but who would know
Son of Sam, Ed Kemper, DeSalvo
They don't seem deranged
Crave only blood and pain
You're not save from this lunatic fringe
Anyone can go on a killing bing
Here's some fuel for our deepest fears
200 thousand killed in the last 10 years

The drownings, the hangings, the stabbings, the stranglings
The body count continues to rise
Diabolic maniacs attempt the perfect crime
Their victims are dying their love ones are crying
Unlucky ones get in their path
Plotting and planning and stalking and lurking
Yearning for their Blood Bath

Nameless victims - Bloodbath
Die screaming - Bloodbath
Forsake - Bloodbath
In sorrow - Bloodbath
And tears
They hide in plain site, they seek a certain type
Ridding the world of a few
The police have no clues
Serial killers!

It's up to him if he lets them live
Some are tortured and then they're slain.
They are born not made
Serial killers!
6. Ancient Horror (3:27)
Ancient horror, ancient nightmare
Older than mankind
Sources of terror, source of evil
Come forth form the brine
Black and slimy, dripping mucus
Giant golden eye
Beak for ripping, suckers biting
Tentacles held high

From his kingdom, deep dark ocean
Burst forth to the land
Godlike power, demon fury
Time is now at hand
Vulgar figure, oozing onward
Stench of salty muck
Devastation, marks his pathway
Malice runs amok

Almighty, is risen, ton conquer earth
King of gods, soul reaper, life has no worth

Ancient Horror(4x)

Time forgotten, master elder
Dreadful beastly slug
Spewing venom, rancid pustules
Dripping acid blood
Bow before him, makes no difference
Your mind it will crack
Life means nothing, feeds on sorrow
Relentless attack

Almighty, is risen, ton conquer earth
King of gods, soul reaper, life has no worth


Ancient Horror(4x)
7. Fragrance of Corpse (3:12)
Hideous, disgusting, obnoxious and crude
A family outcast that's vile and rude
Secluded, abandoned, desolate, alone
Withdrawn from the world he lives on his own
Sadistic, inhuman, merciless and cruel
His own moral standards, his own set of rules

Chorus:
Putrid - Stinking smell
Rotting - Bodies swell
Decayed - Human skill
The Fragrance of Corpse is his stench of his kin

Pretending he's God to provide for his needs
Reattaching body parts until he succeeds
An assortment of heads, torsos and limbs,
Modern day Frankenstein creating his friends

Demented, unbalanced, unstable, deranged
Bodies of victims are severed and maimed
Revengeful, psychotic, vindictive, insane
Attaching choice pieces of human remains
Murdering, butchering, dissecting, mayhem
Constructing companions that never betray him

Chorus

Pretending he's God to provide for his needs
Reattaching body parts until he succeeds
An assortment of heads, torsos and limbs,
Modern day Frankenstein creating his friends
8. Curse of the Draugr (3:32)
Rising from the cold Norse ground
Undead Viking lusting blood
Gleefully he cuts you down
And drags you to his tomb
Dark of night is hen he prowls
Through his realm no man shall pass
Robbing corpses of their gold
He takes it to the grave

Chorus:
Harder than steel
He lives to kill
Merciless slaughter
Cruse of the Draugr

Death black flesh in the pale moon light
Greedy for his red revenge
Filled with hatred of mankind
Jealous of all life
From the living fog he charges
Full Berzerker rage
Brutal blows from ancient steel
He cleaves you to the bone

Chorus

Damned to haunt the earth forever
Cursed abomination
For heinous crimes now long forgotten
He can never die
His only pleasure is to kill
In agonizing pain
Delighting in our suffering
Foul sadistic fiend

Chorus
9. Sacramentum Gladiatorum (4:22)
10. Ludus Magnus (9:32)
Slaves... you have just arrived at Ludus Magnus, the
finest gladiatorial training school in all of Rome
And when you die, and die you shall, I will teach you
to die gracefully, with honor and to the roar of the
crowd. Now each and every one of you must recite the
"Sacramentum Gladiatorum" and receive the mark of
the brotherhood
I swear, to be burned by fire, bound in chains, to be
beaten, and to be killed by the sword in the pursuit of
honor in the arena.
They are Gladiators, they live deep in the bowels of the
Roman Colosseum
Their barracks are just outside the rusted gates of
their future afterlife
A world where men are trained to kill, blood their
ambrosia, the arena their mountaintop
Sacred Ground, watered with the tears of blood, their
blood, their tears

Chorus:
Ludus Magnus - Forged into gods - Instill the will to kill
Gladiatorial Combat - The Sport of Rome - Blood spills
with skills that thrill
Their gods have betrayed them!
Now they're forced to slay men!
Ludus Magnus - Forged into gods - Instill the will to
kill.
Gladiatorial Combat!! They will die...

Chorus

Battles to the death demonstrate the violent soul of the
Roman Empire
Thousands upon thousands flock to the arenas to
watch these professional fighting machines
Warriors trained for the amusement of the ancient
world's greatest power
Their new masters, notorious for their cruelty, betting
to see who will die first

They enter the arena through catacombs which leads
them to the Gate of Life
In defeat, two fingers mark the symbol of surrender to
the editor of the games
Thumbs down! They must kneel, offering themselves
to cold blooded murder
The victor plunges his gladius through the neck and
down into their heart
Their corpses dragged by hooks in their heels, through
the Gate of Death
Body parts fed to wild beasts to get them used to the
taste of human flesh
