Scar the Martyr Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level chelsea485
1. Intro (1:02)
2. Dark Ages (6:52)
In tow they sink...to the lowest level
They lie, steal, cheat...they stand for nothing
The gods of greed...they feed on our failure
they planet their seeds, don't buy what they're selling

It's a stab in the back, it's a slap in the face
Our culture, it preys upon weakness
The facts, they are false. Yet we must erase...
The ignorance, we are the witness

In the face of fear, we're living in the dark ages again
To define what's real, what's left of us will come to an end [2x]
What's left of us will come to an end

Rethink, rebuild, the falsehood of nations
Console, conceal, believe in nothing
The lords of war, they hide behind weapons
Destruct, deceive, decode all their secrets

In the face of fear, we're living in the dark ages again
To define what's real, what's left of us will come to an end [2x]
What's left of us will come to an end

We can't turn it off, we can't look away
We can't beg to differ, know, I'm better than you [3x]
Can't turn it off, can't look away

In the face of fear, we're living in the dark ages again
To define what's real, what's left of us will come to an end [2x]
What's left of us will come to an end

What's left of us will come to an END
3. My Retribution (4:08)
Forbidden fortress, kneel to the lamb
Bodies lay lifeless, their faces stare
Your hall of mirrors, drag all the waters
Unearth to offer, buried in glass

An all new law, it's like we're looking down the barrel of a loaded gun
Unleash my woes upon the world,
I sing the sorrow for the sinners & their sacred song
An all new law, noble apostle on the altar,
I'm the chosen one. An all new law

My retribution, for what I've done,
My retribution, for what I've lost

Thine evil forces, the clock strikes twelve
Covered in corpses, under the veil
Whore of the hour, heart of the devil
Mark of the master, seek my revenge

An all new law, it's like we're looking down the barrel of a loaded gun
Unleash my woes upon the world,
I sing the sorrow for the sinners & their sacred song
An all new law, noble apostle on the altar,
I'm the chosen one. An all new law

My retribution, for what I've done,
My retribution, for what I've lost

The hearts of darkness, fragile as they seem
They long for more, they're bursting at the seams
The fear that fuels the despair, it's so disheartening
It this feels like redemption, I'm free

An all new law, it's like we're looking down the barrel of a loaded gun
Unleash my woes upon the world,
I sing the sorrow for the sinners & their sacred song
An all new law, noble apostle on the altar,
I'm the chosen one. An all new law
4. Soul Disintegration (5:52)
What a waste, deception hangs,
In the balance, we create: Our only hope is the truth.
A bitter fate, it satiates, primal and carnal, lost embrace
Turns the innocence to ruin

Answer to the call of an unknown force
Given all I could, still but you want more
See, I'm not like you, Soul disintegration
Looking for the key to unlock the doors
With every single dream, when it's run its course
See, I'm not like you, Soul Disintegration

Inhuman race, a different face,
For our survival we create: our afflictions, we are fools
A docile state, we medicate, snuff out emotions, it's too late
We're confined without a clue

Answer to the call of an unknown force
Given all I could, still but you want more
See, I'm not like you, Soul disintegration
Looking for the key to unlock the doors
With every single dream, when it's run its course
See, I'm not like you, Soul Disintegration

You're dead inside my heart
I won't take it anymore,
You're dead inside my heart
I won't take it anymore.
I'm no prisoner [3x]

Rely on weakness, the strong will rise and overcome
Injustice is hate, words fall on deaf ears and the poor

Answer to the call of an unknown force
Given all I could, still but you want more
See, I'm not like you, Soul disintegration
Looking for the key to unlock the doors
With every single dream, when it's run its course
See, I'm not like you, Soul Disintegration
5. Cruel Ocean (5:03)
...and so I beckon the seas
The clamor of voices wash over me
The crashing waves of hope, give labour to love
Makes a spiritual beggar that cries out to God
...tied to the ashes you leave
Bleed all of my vessels and pick my bones clean
Pending transgressions, plow the soul from the earth
As I breathe in the venom, she enters my lungs

Under a sea of stars, you're casting your anchor
But you're sinking down...
The sacrilege of everything you hold sacred
Fades without a sound...

Worlds apart and miles away, Cruel ocean: Will you lead us?
To make our final resting place...

...and so I beckon the seas
I beg for your mercy and serenity
Salt in my wounds, I let your spell take control
In the calm of your essence, a spirit is born

Under a sea of stars, you're casting your anchor
But you're sinking down...
The sacrilege of everything you hold sacred
Fades without a sound...

Worlds apart and miles away, Cruel ocean: Will you lead us?
Our hearts are washed upon the shore.

And now there's oceans in between. I watch you slip away.
Go cleanse yourself of all the pain, but it won't wash away [2x]

Worlds apart and miles away, Cruel ocean: Will you lead us?
To make our final resting place.
Worlds apart and miles away, Cruel ocean: Will you lead us?
Our hearts are washed upon the shore. [2x]
6. Blood Host (6:47)
In the shade, darkened gaze, every color, its dismay
Arid sky, it turns to grey, threshold of desertion.
Crimson shards, take their shape, to infect each passageway
Penetrate them into space, There is no survival

With every word you say, the spew that you create
And every smile you fake, you only want to suck me dry
With every breath I have, until there's nothing left
I'm gonna live until you suffocate and watch you die
(Contents under pressure)

Recreate, purge the hate, internal thoughts manipulate
Null and void, it turns to waste, submission: a diversion
Stark and stale, it rots away, like the sickness it creates
Left hand path that leads the way, record all our transgressions

With every word you say, the spew that you create
And every smile you fake, you only want to suck me dry
With every breath I have, until there's nothing left
I'm gonna live until you suffocate and watch you die

You've dealt the damage done,
You make your living on the blood of another host
Or maybe not enough...
You're seeking refuge in the arms of another ghost [2x]
(Contents under pressure) [2x]

You're so predictable, a parasite of sorts
You build me up to bring me down
You'll never watch me fall, the boughs of flesh is all
You'll never claim to take this time. [2x]

You suffer well, it serves you well
You'll burn in hell, and perish in the dust
DUST [4x]

With every word you say, the spew that you create
And every smile you fake, you only want to suck me dry
With every breath I have, until there's nothing left
I'm gonna live until you suffocate and watch you die

You've dealt the damage done,
You make your living on the blood of another host
Or maybe not enough...
You're seeking refuge in the arms of another ghost [4x]
7. Sign of the Omeneye (0:43)
8. Anatomy of Erinyes (6:12)
On the inside
Black lung, black heart, black blood
On the outside
Black wings, black stare, black tongue
Swept from the tide
The currents pull with force
A shallow dive
Underwater she...

She guides, shapes, shifts
The cave sucks you in. Sick, sense...
Her vessels instill...black dye
Am I alive, while I'm alive...Capsized

Take to the sky
The siren calls at dawn
With eyes of fire
Abysmal home of whores
Read the last rights
Burn in all that's born
Shine in dark light
Underwater she...

Drag me under the drone
Cut from the cast, comatose
Dare to swim to the coast
Burrow beneath the grave stones
Shrine made of birds, snakes and bones
Rise from the Mausoleum
9. Prayer For Prey (6:09)
A servant's oath, to serve your every wish I will
A servant's oath, Sanctum of loyalty I give
Feast of the flesh to mask the art

Pain is your pleasure, empowered by the powerless
You are my master, lord of betrayal & loneliness

A broken soul, it is our bond held by these chains
A broken soul, but I'd never leave you here this way

Prayer for prey, it's in your name, in vain of gospels
Prayer for prey, the cross I bear, I'll bury it for you (repeat)
No pride, I have worn this crown for you
You could always heal my wounds, but you can't stop the bleeding
On trial, you can't hide me from the truth
You could always heal my wounds, but you can't stop the bleeding

Sin is your savior, my scars are all that you have left
Sick as your secrets, behind these eyes, you're someone else
Behind these eyes, you're someone else.

You could always heal my wounds.
You can't hide me from the truth
you can't stop the bleeding. Oh

[Chorus]
10. White Nights in a Day Room (6:09)
There's blood on your hands and you're trying to save me
It's your second chance, but you can't save me now
You've done what you can, with a kiss to betray me
So the story goes...What you gonna do now that you're falling
Fallen, just like me...What you gonna do
Now that you're crawling on your hands and knees

My walls are tumbling down, no hope to be found.
I'm breaking down...and I've got nowhere to go.
Tumbling down, walls are tumbling down.
I'm breaking down...and I've got nowhere to go.

I'm dead where you stand, you're so quick to forsake me
The shell of a man, the vows are broken now
We've come to an end, At rest, our love is a memory...
So the story goes...What you gonna do now that you're falling
Fallen, just like me...What you gonna do
Now that you're crawling on your hands and knees

My walls are tumbling down, no hope to be found.
I'm breaking down...and I've got nowhere to go.
Tumbling down, walls are tumbling down.
I'm breaking down...and I've got nowhere to go.

In your word, I never wanted to...
But I hurt the way that I hurt you

[Chorus 2x]
11. Effigy Unborn (4:41)
You are my lord of the flies
Puncture wounds, carve out the eyes
Through you, live out my demise, decomposition
I wanna peel back the skin, to see the real you within
Remains are all that is left, No legacy to protect
You are the brain, I'm the bride
Unchained, you're burning inside
Slither and crawl through the bile, resuscitation
Tear you apart, limb from limb
I wanna dissect the kill, to cure the sickness within
Sever the sun, disconnect

I feel it slipping away, it's tearing me from the inside out
Separation of faith, I've fallen too deep now
The stench of moral decay...

I'm gonna wear your love, just like a funeral
You are my effigy unborn
I'm gonna wear your love, just like a funeral
You are my effigy unborn
I'll wear your face, nameless to the world...
Gives every meaning to live with your words

I feel it slipping away, it's tearing me from the inside out
Separation of faith, I've fallen too deep now
The stench of moral decay...

I'm gonna wear your love, just like a funeral
You are my effigy unborn
I'm gonna wear your love, just like a funeral
You are my effigy unborn
I'll wear your face, nameless to the world...
Gives every meaning to live with your words

I feel as dead as yesterday in my mind
This pre-existing compulsion forces free the quilt I cannot hide
At last, alone in the sound, of screams, the shrieking surrounds
In my insanity, the voices cover me like a shroud

An unborn effigy, Sleep in your palace of worms
The hellish imagery, An effigy unborn.

I feel it slipping away...

[Chorus 2x]
12. Never Forgive Never Forget (5:44)
Another punch to the gut,
Another three steps back
I swear it's never ending,
I should've never placed my bets on you
Another push and a pull, A fog of war and attack
I should've seen it coming,
The whole thing's going to hell, All thanks to you

Oh, when I put my faith in you, I sold my soul for you
Oh, I should've never put my trust in you,
That's when I sold my soul for you,
Like a broken man, I'll take the beating

I'm never gonna forgive...
Now we're dead, yeah it's over,
Why you still got something to prove
Girl you better redeem yourself,
I told you once before that we're through,
I'm never gonna forget...
Now it's sad that we're over,
But you know you had it coming to you
You know that I can't pretend,
I'm never gonna forgive, I'm never gonna forget

You got me nailed to the gun, another stab in the back
I should've known your better, took me for granted,
Played me like a fool
You've had your chance,
It was fun and now you're wanting me back
I think I'll see you later
The whole thing's going to hell, All thanks to you
13. Mind's Eye (6:10)
I am the Alpha and the second coming
Fundamental discovery, for the need to create and control
Seek no others, forms or cures before me
Supernatural beings, all encompassing forces foretold

Every martyr crucified, All disciples are denied
Gone is all that's sanctified, justified, redefined
All that's burning deep inside, see the future that you hide
The Universal divide, time is mine, your mind's eye

I'm the Omega, granted you don't know me
Monumental misfortune, for the judgment of swing and lost souls
In the wake upon the eve of destruction,
Plant the seeds of my offering,
Let the order of chains control

Every martyr crucified, All disciples are denied
Gone is all that's sanctified, justified, redefined
All that's burning deep inside, see the future that you hide
The Universal divide, time is mine, your mind's eye

The universal divide, in search of strength and meaning
Sewn from the seeds of your mind, progression of our being.
The universal divide, in search of strength and meaning:
A revelation of time

Degeneration, my definition of yourself
Transcend the faceless, another wasted space [2x]

Every martyr crucified, All disciples are denied
Gone is all that's sanctified, justified, redefined
All that's burning deep inside, see the future that you hide
The Universal divide, time is mine, your mind's eye

The universal divide, in search of strength and meaning
Sewn from the seeds of your mind, progression of our being.
The universal divide, in search of strength and meaning:
A revelation of time

All we are, we'll be again...
Just find yourself and life begins [4x + Outro]
14. Last Night on Earth (8:31)
Now I say, do what thou will,
Nightmarish requiem
Pierce the skin as you scream,
Just like the slaughter of pigs
Mask the pain, crown the king,
It's all coming undone
In nothingness, I'm every dream,
I'm everything you never were

Fall, into the cracks of the world
Your kingdom never comes.
It's up to us, it's up to us
Gone, feels like the end of the world
Your kingdom never comes,
Keep crawling to its core
It's our last night on earth

Content to scourge the obscene, impale the nemesis
Lash the spin & the spleen,
Thrown out like scraps to the wind
Atrocity & Disease, a ruthless warrior's ruin
In nothingness, I'm every dream,
I'm everything you'll never be

We fight the horror, cause it's all that we can do
We fear tomorrow, but that won't save us from our doom
With blood* and thunder, we tread the waters
The sky is broken, Keep crawling to its core
It's our last night on earth
