The All-Star Sessions Lyrics

(17)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. The Dagger (5:31)
[Music - Robert Flynn. Lyrics - Howard Jones/Robert Flynn]

Your tongue is a dagger
And I am bleeding
My faded dreams were all for you

And with one word, and with just one word
Choking the life, I breathe my last
And with one look, and with just one look
You hold the key to this heart of glass

This is the withering
I'm aging years in moments
This is the path that leads
To my demise

Your tongue is a dagger
And I am bleeding
My faded dreams were all for you

And with one word, and with just one word
You've shattered my world and crushed my soul
And with one look, and with just one look
The rising sun has never felt so cold

This is the suffering
The echoes of your voice haunt
This faded memory
Is my demise

Your tongue is a dagger
And I am bleeding
My faded dreams were all for...

And I feel this all too slow
And I've been here for so long
And I feel so empty
As you walk away

What have you done?
What have you done?
What have you done?
What have you done?

I would give it all away
For the chance to shine again
I would freely pay the price
For the touch of your hand

And I feel this all too slow
And I've been here for so long
And I feel so empty
As you walk away

What have you done?
What have you become?
All is lost
We are left with sorrow
2. The Enemy (4:44)
[Music - Dino Cazares/Roy Mayorga. Lyrics - Mark Hunter]

I finally found myself
I tried to erase all this hate from my body
I tried to end all the lies, all the pain that I caused everyone
But it all seemed so fucking useless

I can’t forgive
And I can’t forget
Don’t you know who the fuck I am
I’m the enemy

I’ve lived a life of regret
I’ve had this burden of guilt suffocating
It’s time to shed this disguise
And it’s time to rise and destroy
Everyone in my fucking path

I can’t forgive
And I can’t forget
Don’t you know who the fuck I am
I’m the enemy

Take a good look at me
I’m your enemy

Don’t try to make amends
There’s just no need to pretend it will all be ok
You can try to run and you can try to hide
But it’s all fucking pointless

I can’t forgive
And I can’t forget
Don’t you know who the fuck I am
I’m the enemy
3. Annihilation by the Hands of God (5:33)
[Music - Joey Jordison/Rob Barrett. Lyrics - Glen Benton]

The prophets of God have left you solaced indeed
A zombie of Jesus insane with his belief
Is all that you know and all you take as you go
You’re one with the rich and only take from the poor

Nailed to the cross by your hands and your feet
Your washed up religion is now worthless and weak
Tenacious conviction has caught up with your soul
There’s no place for mercy in the myths of your lord

Little lamb of sacrifice, full of Bible hymns
Hiding in the house of God, from his suffering
Pray the son will come and call just to make us dead
Bring upon the end of times…worship if you dare

Wiping out masses just for shits and a grin
Is all an illusion of the spell that you’re in
Religious confliction has impaired your control
In his resurrection, revelations unfold

He is you the sacrifice, in the house of bless
Crucify yourself to death just to get to him
Die…. will you….

Annihilation by the hands of God
Mutilate me….
Annihilation by the hands of God
Unforgiving….
Annihilation by the hands of God
Christ ill willing….
Annihilation by the hands of God
Heaven hates you….

When it’s time, I won’t look back
Heaven’s gates under attack

Satan….
Satan….
Satan….
Satan….

Little lamb of sacrifice, full of Bible hymns
Hiding in the house of God, from his suffering
Pray the son will come and call just to make us dead
Bring upon the end of times…. worship if you dare

Annihilation by the hands of God
Mutilate me….
Annihilation by the hands of God
Unforgiving….
Annihilation by the hands of God
Christ ill willing….
Annihilation by the hands of God
Heaven hates you….
4. In the Fire (4:07)
[Music - Matt Heafy. Lyrics - King Diamond]

“Confess… Witch“

I see the moon outside
With its evil grin
Watching the priest tonight
Accusing ME of sin

Oh, help me, “No, you're gonna die“
Oh, help me, “No, just say goodbye“

In the fire, on blackened wings I fly
In the fire, to Hell… and then I die…
Oh it's still the same
Can you tell me why?
Witches then are Witches today

“Confess… Witch“

A thousand years of pain
Between here and then
Did we all die in vain?
Oh it's just insane

Oh, help me, “No, you're gonna die“
Oh, help me, “No, just say goodbye“

In the fire, on blackened wings I fly
In the fire, to Hell… and then I die…
Oh it's still the same
Can you tell me why?
Witches then are Witches today

“Die Witch… Now go to Hell“

In the fire, on blackened wings I fly
In the fire, to Hell… and then I die…
Oh it's still the same
Can you tell me why?
Witches then are Witches today
5. The End (3:35)
[Music - Dino Cazares. Lyrics - Matt Heafy]

Just when you thought it was over
The sky turned black and we all fell to Earth
Dead in our tracks, we were frozen in fact
Choking to breathe, then came the seas
Wash away impurities, wash away all that couldn’t be

Everyone will be washed away
Drowning in the hell that we made
I cannot believe that our end is so near

Standing at the end of our world
Breathing in the chaos behold
None will be found, it’s all toppling down
Cities will seethe, none could believe
Wash away impurities, wash away all that couldn’t be

Everyone will be washed away
Drowning in the hell that we made
I cannot believe that our end is so near

Save me
Save me from what will engulf this world
Save us
Save us from the end, save us from ourselves
Save me
Save me from what will engulf this world

Just when you thought it was over
The sky turned black and we all fell to Earth

Everyone will be washed away
Drowning in the hell that we made
I cannot believe that our end is so near
6. Tired 'N Lonely (3:37)
[Music - Joey Jordison. Lyrics - Keith Caputo]

Just what in the world has come over you
Is it some kind of game you’re playin’ with me

Fed up, tired and lonely
Gonna run away and hide
Was riding, tryin’ to get to heaven
Was riding down the road feeling bad
Left me standing in the doorway cryin’
‘Til my eyes begin to bleed

Just what in the world has come over you
Shall I hold you close or let you go by
Just what in the hell has come over you
Is it some kind of game you’re playin’ with me

Blind
Tired
Blind

You left your feelings out there hanging
Just don’t know what I’m gonna do
It’s just a game, it’s the same old story
This kind of love could you ever be true
You left me standing in the doorway cryin’
I’d give anything to be with you

Just what in the world has come over you
Shall I hold you close or let you go by
Just what in the hell has come over you
Is it some kind of game you’re playin’

Just standing in the doorway cryin’
Gonna run away and hide
Got no place left to turn
Is the love in your heart turning

You left me standing in the doorway cryin’

Just what in the world has come over you
Shall I hold you close or let you go by
Just what in the hell has come over you
Is it some kind of game you’re playin’ with me

Blind
Tired
Blind
Tired
Blind
Tired
Blind
7. Independent (Voice of the Voiceless) (4:51)
[Music - Robert Flynn/Phil Demmel. Lyrics - Max Cavalera]

Who are you to put us down?
Who are you to cut us down?
Who are you to point finger?
Who are you to criticize?

We who are with sacrifice
We who are with blood and fire
We who are from the beginning
We who are ‘til the end

Independent - Voice of the Voiceless

Who are you to criticize?
Who are you… make up lies?
Who are you to pass judgement?
Who are you… destroy life?

We who are the voice
We who are of the voiceless.
We who are to live and die
We who are... we arise

Independent - Voice of the Voiceless

Deus de vida longa aos meus inimigos
Para que possam ver de pe minha vitoria

(God grant my enemies a long life
So they can watch my victory)
8. Dawn of a Golden Age (4:09)
[Music - Matt Heafy. Lyrics - Dani Filth]

Moon childe
Spawned of rage
Soon childe...
The dawning of a golden age

Four and twenty acts have passed
Since the pact was signed in blood
Now this fifth lustrum will surely grasp
The children of the holy
With music wracked like final gasps
From hearts that broken, flood
Whilst ruby-wedding talons clasp
This silver anniversary

Moon childe
Spawned of rage
Soon childe...
The dawning of a golden age

Vermillion rivers slither past
Racing roads to Shangri-La
Where a million souls aquiver ask
Small mercies of the holy
Like flowers plucked from crimson tar
On florid banks, the priests
Waft their scent through horrid bars
To incense the greater beast

Bereft of their seas of sweet dreams
He brings tidings of pain
War songs in the key of death
Sharpened through famine and plague

The knife at the throat of all murder
He wrote whilst in chains

"And there was given to him a mouth
Speaking great things and blasphemies
And power was given unto him
To blaspheme against God
And them that dwell in heaven
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints
And to overcome them..."

And risen from imprisonment
With so many nations to tame
Past Caesars and Tsars are but lesions and scars
To the backs of beyond he reclaims
For what is not told nor writ bold to his face
Is now whispered to the torturer's cheek
And with the rapport whores and sorcerers make
His kingdom embraces both the Pope and the State

The suck and the fuck of the wait and
A glut and a covetous Satan
The suck and the fuck of the wait and
Come what may
A glut and a covetous Satan
Pre-ordained

Moon childe
Spawned of rage
Soon childe...
The dawning of a golden age
9. The Rich Man (6:49)
[Music - Robert Flynn. Lyrics - Corey Taylor]

Somehow, I think I’m going home
Even though my friends can’t reach me
I don’t know how I ended up alone
All I know is you can’t save me
They only asked us to believe
They only wanted us to follow
I think I’m old enough to see
I think I’m going home tomorrow

I believe in…
Sinners and hypocrites
Burning in the desert for a rich man
Liars and lunatics
Lead us to the slaughter for our last stand
Killers and idiots
Dying in the desert for a rich man
Sinners and hypocrites
Gather us together for the master plan

I didn’t bother with my faith
How will my family recognize it?
Somehow, I think I’m going home
But I still can’t comprehend it
I know I don’t want to die
But I know dying will not end it

I believe in…
Sinners and hypocrites
Burning in the desert for a rich man
Liars and lunatics
Lead us to the slaughter for our last stand
Killers and idiots
Dying in the desert for a rich man
Sinners and hypocrites
Gather us together for the bastards

I know the truth is all a lie - my skin is cracking on my lips
I don’t pretend that I can understand why we are doing this
My heart has bled a thousand times - how will I live with what we’ve done?
The only comfort is the knowledge that I’m not the only one

Why am I here?
What did I do?
Why?
10. No Way Out (3:27)
[Music - Joey Jordison/Matt Sepanic. Lyrics - Daryl Palumbo]

Children carry out your voice, it really matters
Carry on about your fight and who it shattered
The blood is skewn around
And they will kick a man when he's down
Children carry out your voice, it really matters

We are never right
We are forever wrong
And I believe
As I ran inside
We are good enough to be true

Children rise from this with forty words and forty fists
Carry on around their hope before they're broken
If the people live in doubt and scream the way out, the way out, the way out!
Children carry out your voice it's all that matters

We are never right
We are forever wrong
And I believe
As I ran inside
We are good enough to be true

And we don't want to know everything
We wanna know one thing
Only tell us where the blood is
We will clean it up

And we don't want to know everything
We wanna know one thing
Only tell us where the blood is
We will clean it up

We are never right
We are forever wrong
And I believe
As I ran inside
We are good enough to be true

We are never right
We are never wrong
And I believe
As I ran inside
We are good enough to true
11. Baptized in the Redemption (3:19)
[Music - Dino Cazares/Roy Mayorga. Lyrics - Dez Fafara]

Some voices carry
Through the halls of laughter
As locusts are swarming
From here to ever after

Baptized in the redemption
Sanctified through the redemption
It’s the nature of defiance
To go against the Holy Alliance

Know it by the night
Know it by the light
Know it if you will
By the wind up on the hill

Oh, it’s blasphemy
It’s heresy
What your God allows!

Cringe and bow your head
When the man comes running through
The shadow of your sins are cast
Across the valley below

Baptized in the redemption
Sanctified through the redemption
It’s the nature of defiance
To go against the Holy Alliance

Know it if you will
By the wind up on the hill

Oh, it’s blasphemy
It’s heresy
What your God allows!
12. Roads (2:24)
[Music - Josh Silver. Lyrics - Mikael Åkerfeldt]

The voice of loss is sighing through the rain
And as I turn around
Nothing is to be found
For hours now upon this endless road
Is it taking me
Where I long to be?

Alone

A soaring hope is reeling in my head
I can’t remember this
But it must be what I miss
Suddenly I find I’m standing still
Staring at the ground
Waiting for your sound

Again
13. Blood & Flames (5:38)
[Music - Matt Heafy. Lyrics - Jesse David Leach]

You thrust the knife into my side with words you say you realize
That I came to speak of what I see no matter what you do to me

I stand --- no compromise --- I feel --- prepared to die

Falling, our lives were led astray when we fell from grace
Calling, your life won’t be denied when washed with blood and flames

You thrust the knife into my side with words you say you realize

I stand --- no compromise --- I feel --- prepared to die

My life for yours, this raging war, as I stand in the midst of darkness screaming

Falling, our lives were led astray when we fell from grace
Calling, your life won’t be denied when washed with blood and flames

My life for yours, this raging war, as I stand in the midst of darkness screaming
We know our roots, we know the truth, the strength of our foundations

I stand --- no compromise --- I feel --- prepared to die

Falling, our lives were led astray when we fell from grace
Calling, your life won’t be denied when washed with blood and flames

My life for yours, this raging war, as I stand in the midst of darkness screaming
We know our roots, we know the truth, the strength of our foundations
14. Constitution Down (5:04)
[Music - Joey Jordison. Lyrics - Kyle Thomas]

Like an earthquake racing through the fault line
Silent stalkers creep
Ardor of a tangible delusion skewing what remains as real
A sinister and unexpected raid infiltrates like a thief unheard
Demarcation of coherence and delirium crumbles to the floor
Comprehension awry

Vacillating powers of the spirit formally at war
Dialectics failing by the minute
Imps possess the child she bore

Fractured soul
Constitution down
Hope is gone
Allocate the unsound
Constitution down
Allocate the unsound

The unknown is the cross to endure
Still no assessments ensure
Breakdown of chaos prevails
What does tomorrow entail?

Fractured soul
Constitution down
Hope is gone
Allocate the unsound
Constitution down
Allocate the unsound
15. I Don't Wanna Be (A Superhero) (2:02)
[Music - Matt Heafy. Lyrics - Michale Graves]

They came from the sky
And they came from the sea
They came from the inside of a television screen
Babies of bastards
Breeding as one
The fate of Earth is doomed
I quit! I’m done!

Some kind of darkness come creep over me
On what legal meat does our Caesar do feed?
So we could never be this free…no!

I don’t want to be a superhero
Never really cared about society
I don’t want to be a superhero
I don’t care so don’t call me

They came from the sea
And they came from the sky
Captain America is going to die
Babies of bastards
Breeding for fun
The fate of Earth is doomed
Get your gun, I’m done

Some kind of darkness come creep over me
On what legal meat does our Caesar do feed?
So we could never be this free…no!

I don’t want to be a superhero
Never really cared about society
I don’t want to be a superhero
I believe in a conspiracy

Some kind of darkness come creep over me
On what legal meat does our Caesar do feed?
So we could never be this free…no!

I don’t want to be a superhero
Never really cared about society
I don’t want to be a superhero
I don’t care so don’t call me
16. Army of the Sun (3:48)
[Music - Robert Flynn/Dave McClain. Lyrics - Tim Williams]

I was electrified by your eyes as they froze
Inviting me inside of your life to grow

Everlasting setting sun
You’re my angel, you’re the only one
No one close and nothing compares in the end
We will be together again

I'm so mesmerized by the light you expose
Igniting a fire deep inside of my soul

Everlasting setting sun
You’re my angel, you’re the only one
No one close and nothing compares in the end
We will be together again

Darkness shall fall with the strength of us all
Darkness shall fall
Darkness shall fall with the strength of us all
It shall fall

I raise my white flag
It’s the last flag I’ll ever raise
Don't stay away
Staring at you and all you are
I believe
Yeah I believe
Yeah I believe

(So much sadness, what happened to happiness...)
Everlasting setting sun
You’re my angel, you’re the only one
No one close and nothing compares in the end
You’re my angel, you’re the only one

We will be together again
17. No Más Control (3:01)
[Music - Dino Cazares/John Sankey. Lyrics - Cristian Machado]

I will burn la condicion
Que me infecta
No es tu control
Que me affecta
My infliction
One dimension
Dispossession
I

I gotta get out from this whole
I gotta release el control
I gotta get out

Respect is got to be
Mi libertad la solucion
I never
Will surrender
Mi decision
Mi conviction
Mi division
I

I gotta get out from this whole
I gotta release el control
Y lo que me quema
No son tus problemas
You’re bringin’ me down, down, down

No more

No mas control
No mas control
No mas control
No mas control…

Forever is now or never
Y siempre pienso asi

I gotta get out from this whole
I gotta release el control
Y lo que me quema
No son tus problemas
Keep bringin’ me down, down, down

No more

No mas control
