Army of One Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Army of One
Breaking from under the spell
Taking my life like a bullet wound
My masters are straight out of hell
I feel their eyes watching my every move
I can not surrender control
My only relief from this endless pain
I beg and I cry for an ounce of your sympathy
Still I am left here to die

Carry on, just a moment of mercy
Bring your fight to them all
Lift your blade, from the floor

Death, is my burning light
Still I'm alive and must fight
The knife in my hand is my guiding force
I scream through the silence of night
My senses are gaining complete control

Just a dream, now nothing is over
Break your chains from the wall
Stand up, stand tall

Slowly we built to a mass
An army of one as we grow with our vengeance
The battle has not yet begun
We'll tear out the hearts of all those who suppress us

Just a dream, now nothing is over
Break your chains from the wall
Stand up, stand up, stand tall
2. Knockin' at My Door
I'm feeling like I'm caged, I've got to live
There's someone on their way
I'm guessing that I'm brave, but still I give
The devils has his day
I'll tear it up, I'll tear it down alone, that's what I feel inside
I look behind the corners where I go
I can not close my eyes

You see what you wanna see
You feel what you wanna feel
There's someone at my door

Who's that knockin' at my door, knockin' at my door
Who's that knockin' at my door, knockin' at

It stepped inside my mind and it won't leave
The images I see
I can't confuse the messages I read
There's someone haunting me

You hear what you wanna hear
You know what you wanna know
There's someone at my door

You see what you wanna see
You feel what you wanna feel
There's someone at my door
3. Blinded
Blinded, I give my true confession
Innocent I walk out on the floor
Finding, all of my oppression
Patronizing what you think is pure

Give me something, lay my hands upon the door
Only my sense of who you are, who you are

Is it yesterday, am I on my way
Just a picture on the wall
Sever all my ties, try to recognize
Just a memory, that's all

Blinded, caught in disillusion
Just a little light inside your eye
I've been dwelling in seclusion
Hiding from the demons in the sky

Only you, drag my heart onto the floor
Desperate my intentions are ignored, are ignored

Is it yesterday, am I on my way
Like a needle in my vein
Sever all my ties, try to recognize
Now I can't escape the pain

Now I'm lost inside, mirror by my side
Like an angel at my door
Broken alibis, try to recognize
I keep coming back for more
Is it yesterday, am I on my way
Just a picture on the wall
Sever all my ties, try to recognize
Just a memory, that's all
4. One More Alibi
Roll the dice or spin the dial, save a life or kill a child
Test the blade for residue, that's not all they found on you
Like a dying man, in a story book
The only think I want to know is who you are

I'll give you, a moment in your life to run
From all the different things you might not be
I'll let you, inside my confidence I know
And find a way to what you have become

Burn the cross or let it stand, is it a crime for half a man
I need to know
Build a bridge or tear it down
Only a king could wear your crown

Such a lonely page, in your story book
Now all I want to know is who you are

I'll give you, another piece of time to tell you
It holds the answers to your life
I'll show you, one more alibi to let you
Resurrect the pieces you have lost

Like a dying man, in a story book
The only thing I want to know is who you are
Tell me who you are

It's just a moment in your life, it's just a moment in time
5. It All Falls Down
Building walls cities tall, just a moment over
Camouflage, hear them call, one more turn to sorrow
Tear it down, tear it down, then they will remember
Every kind has a crown, nothing left to send her

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I know it does, I know it all falls down
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I know it will, I know it all falls down

Innocence, just the same, never stop to question
In the end, just a game, it's just no deception
Tear it down, tear it down, tear it out from under
Take a piece, look around, there's no time to wonder

Tell a few, tell them all, just in time to miss you
Kick the wall watch it fall, it's a crime to be true
Take a life make them proud, then the past is undone
6. Helpin' Hand
If ever I saw you there, would you even care
Just a sign for everyone to see
Once I was a boy, now just like a man
I'll find a way to pass another helpin' hand

In a distant land, I'll be there for you
No one else gonna help you like I do

Tell me, tell me half of what you're thinking
'cause I don't know
Tell me, tell me so my heart ain't sinking, let me know

Just in time you've come, like another one
I've just come to rectify your soul
Once I am a man, I'm gonna make a stand
Get out of my way while you can

If you ever go, won't you let me know
Don't betray the passage out yourself

Tell me, tell me what you think you're living for
'cause I don't know
Tell me, tell me just in case you're heart ain't sure
Let me know

Deep inside my soul, visions come and go
I've got to find a passage back to you
7. The Mystic
Mesmerized, darkened skies, we set upon the seas
In the night, we can not wait, to hear the mystics pleas

Carry on, on through the mercy of night
Never wrong, hi power of sight

Oh see me, see me
Won't you just look in my mind
Oh help me, help me
Turn me away, from all evil I find

Desert sun, wind and rain, all is at your command
Nothing hides from your tortured eyes
The answers lie in your hands

How long we can find the will to survive
Hear my scream, am I alive

Oh see me, see me
Won't you just give me a sign
Oh help me, find me
Give me your hand, and tell me all that you find

How long we can find the will to survive
Hear my scream, am I alive
8. Still Alive
Pickin' me up, your tearin' me down
Like a fool on a mile drive
Sew my side with a dirty needle
Keep your live on the prize alive
Turn me out before you turn me in
Got my hand on a ready blade
Five more days till I meet the man
Gonna bow my head and say

I'm still alive, half a mile until I get away
Still alive, live to fight again another day

I've burned my bridge and I've done my time
Like a man on a magic ride
I'll find my way through a crowded street
I'm a devil in disguise
Get out of my way or I'll gun your down
Got no time for your alibis
I found the crown, now I'm out of town, never gonna die

I'm still alive, half a mile until the border line
Still alive, leave the scene and you won't do the time

I'm still alive, half a mile until I get away
I'm still alive, so I'll live to fight another day
I'm still alive, half a mile until the border line
I'm still alive, leave the scene and you won't do the time
9. Alive in the City
Patronize me, crucify me, throw me in your hole
Suicide see, can't control me, the only thing you know
Try to break me, try to make me, turn against my soul
Try to burn me, try to turn me, against the things I know

I know you, you're alive in the city, never bring me down
I'll turn you from pride to pity, your feet ain't on the ground

Down get down
Running from the man gonna keep me running
Now you've found
Never gonna get what you want from money
Down you'll see, alive in the city where the blind man see
Dawn this town, never gonna change your history

Classify me, pacify me, stab me with your smile
Try to hate me, desecrate me, keep me in denial
You're hesitating, I'm penetrating, deep inside your mind
Infiltrating, eviscerating, everything I find

I found you down in the city, now it is your time
I've damned you, and all you're pity, finished with your lies

Damn this town, never gonna lose your history

Classify me, pacify me, you'll see
Crucify me, patronize me, you'll see
Try to break me, try to make me, you'll see
Try to turn me

Down you'll see, living like a pig in misery
Down get down, spitting in the face of you and me
10. Shine
Speeding through space, I'm falling to fast
The present is fading away
Twisted and lost, I'm far from my home
Just hours of air left to breath
Into the void, I plunge into blackness
This mystery cones to an end
Searching and screaming and desperately pleading
In minutes my death will commence

I can't let go
Nothing left to give me hope

Showering storms of fire and ice
I tumble from mountains of sand
My senses are dull, my body is weak
My ship is in destiny's hand
Blazing with fire I call to my god
Glory to thee take my soul
Save me from pain, or raise me from hell
My body is in your control

And I can't let go
Nothing left to give me hope
I just don't know
Nothing left that I can see

Shine, on your light, see me through
Shine, end this fight, come to you
Shine, in your sun, my last hour
Shine, I can't run, to your tower
11. Stained Mirror (instrumental)
12. Darker Side of Light
Is someone out there
Is someone hiding from the light, ain't that right
You hear them screaming
You see them crying in the night, oh nothing's right

You can see me
Don't you understand
Don't you know

I'm fallin' tonight, to the darker side of light
You better let me go
I'm fading away, a thousand times today
Help me find my way, and I'm calling out to you tonight

Somebody saved you
Somebody pulled you from the dark, like a spark
You let me stumble, you let me ease away from pain
The broken chain

They can't see you
They don't recognize, why

Like a dream you faded, you were cast away
Deep into the night, somewhere safe
You came to me, hold yourself and say, yeah

I'm falling tonight to the darker side of light
You better let me go
I'm fading away, a thousand times today
You better help me stay
I'm falling tonight to the darker side of light
You better let me go
I'm fading away, a thousand times today
You better help me stay
And I'm callin' out to you
