Collective Demise Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Broken Yet United (4:08)
Broken, not united you see the disguise
Broken, not united
See where we've come with our collective hate

We leave behind ideals of a dying generation
Slip away

Bread and blood is life
God's gift to mankind
Broken yet revised
See where we've come
Broken, not united

We keep dry
under the rain of terror

Broken, not united

We leave behind
ideals of a dying generation
Slip away

Berated not refined
You see through the lies
Broke your nets and found
a peaceful haven
Turn it upside down
We keep dry under rainning terror
Children die to fuel the flame of hate
Broken yet unite
2. Coming End of Reason (3:41)
Show the world and your masses
Blood of the butchered you have slain
Behold, the coming end of reason
Death is a better way of life

Throw yourself at the mercy of the dead who seek revange
When blood is seen in haven
God knows his creature's gone insaine

Find no shelter from their wrath
Hate will lead you underground
Mark of glory - quiet maind
Brain dead leaders, out of line

Throw yourself at the mercy of the dead who seek revange
When blood is seen in haven
God knows his creature's gone insaine

You heed the words of the demented
Used as puppets in thier play of lies, hate and destruction
True dark ages abomination
3. Slave (4:08)
Drop your Gods and your primitive religion
Worship our land
Practice diminished
Slaves of the free world
Man made hunger
Bile and vulgar
Kneel

Brave new world
In the shadow of your mysterious death
Slave new world
In the shadow of your mysterious death

Dead man standing
Old man on his knees
Ragged glory
Evil breeds
Strapped by the angels
Freed by hate
Murder spree

Drop your Gods and your primitive religion
Worship our land
Practice diminished
Slaves of the free world
Man made hunger
Bile and vulgar
Kneel

Brave new world
In the shadow of your mysterious death
Slave new world
In the shadow of your mysterious death
4. Act of Terror (Instrumental) (1:04)
5. Act of War (3:56)
When life has no value, death has a price
Spread your wings of fear upon the unsuspecting
Ill drill, overkill - weapons of mass destruction
This is an act of war

Act of terror
Act of war

Fate of humans is directed by the madness reality
of the third war raging madmen

Act of terror
Act of war

Fate of humans is directed by the madness reality
of the third world war raging madmen

When life has no value, death has a price
Spread your wings
of fear upon the unsuspecting
Ill drill, overkill - weapons of mass destruction
This act of of terror is an act of war
6. Collective Demise (4:03)
In the eyes of death there is no difference between me and you
And though you feel hatred
Our mortality bounds us, bounds us

My days are fragile
I am at a loss
with the knowledge of our impending end

The weapons we bear are the symbols off our collective demise
Devised by our kindred
as an emphasis yo our unknown doom
7. Dead Eyes (4:08)
Flaming skies of dawn
Churning perception
Life is just a game you care no more to master
Tarnished hopes, broken dreams pile and hide the sun
Blinked, and now you are gone

Dark cries fill the sky
Dead eyes multiply
Broken spine, fear shrine
Dear cries, perversions of the divine

Alone in this maze of shadows and errors
with no will to live in everlasting sorrow
Truth is a lie to deceive your heart
Carnage paradise
Poetic indifference

Dont speak of God
as if it's one
We, who lost a son think of it as none

Now you live on in my mind
As a memory - buried deep inside

Fighting for your rights
while breeding hate inside
8. Feed your Grief (4:22)
I see the pain
I smell fear in your breath
I feed on grief
I get pleasure from sin

You are the weak
Your reality is me
My presence is near to seal your fate

Why we live blinded
To end her fear, is to end your life

Breaking the golden rule before you are dead
Battered head makes better decisions

I see your pain
I smell fear in your breath
I feed on grief
I get pleasure from sin

Why we live blinded
To end her fear is to end your life
9. Decadence in Solitude (4:14)
Speak in numbers
Calculate
Don't you dare break all which I fake

Chips and numbers grind my life away
to fuel my hate for you
Cheers to our demise

While you kill time - cyberspacing
Time is killing you - hyperaging

Serve the master you created
Paint the A. dream Washington green
Decadence in soiltude

Time to bring the empire down

Now you are under a virtual spell
Slaves to your own invention
Life slips away
Slowly despair creeps in

While you kill time - cyberspacing
Time kills you - hyperaging
10. Recall (4:40)
Before you end your life
Recall all that you've done
Striving for wealth to gain some more power
All of which is now gone

No rest in your afterlife

Now we are left with a weapon
to be used in our Russian Roulette
Being self centered brings mass destruction
This is the world you helped create

No reat in your afterlife

No one can leave this place
A planet in chaos, unsafe
Rest in pieces
Rest in war

Why were you so dumb?
Ruining the future for the ones you love
Die

Now you begin your redemption
Your rooting corpse will fertilize the earth
If no one follows your hollow ways
There is a new chance for rebirth

No reat in your afterlife
11. Al Taster (4:19)
"Al taster paneha mimeni beyom tsar li
Hate elay, ealy ozneha beyom ekra maher aneni"

[Translation:]

"Don't conceal your face away from me in a my day of grief
Lend me an ear in they I call: Answer Me Quickly."
12. Inhuman Greed (5:41)
Words of the wise
to self improve your lives
Who else will wipe your tears
as time goes by
Lies
to ease your existence
to make a small fortune
you're told to leave behind

Inhuman greed
Prey on the weak
Lose your soul
Before the meek
Inhuman greed

Before you sleep at night in your mansion
Do you practice what you preach?
Do you belive the lie?
Lie to the helpless
to make a small fortune
to set example
be featured on prime TV

On your knees - come for me
If I bring the cash you'll comfort me
You wish for pain to come for me
to come again and comfort me

Inhuman greed
Prey on the weak
Lose your soul
Berate the meek
Inhuman greedreed
