The Funeral Album Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level 휘리언
1. May Today Become the Day (4:01)
[Music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, Lyrics: Lopakka]

"They call themselves my brothers. For me they're just the others."

Rain drums the lifeless ground
Drops as cold as ice
The dawn's breaking, the trench a-shaking...
Their fire hits us all around
And the siren cries
"Forward! Forward!" - We go into attack!

May today become the day...
As I plunge into the gray
Lead is flying, all the signs are there
They all think that I am brave
The strongest link of our chain
But really I've gotta say that ain't how it's like

Closing in, not slowing down
Iron, fire, blood
Our line's breaking and death a-taking...
Our men from all around
Into the pools of mud
Forward, forward... There is no turning back!

May today become the day...
As I plunge into the gray
Lead is flying, all the signs are there
They all think that I am brave
The strongest link of our chain
But really I've gotta say that ain't not how it's like

The fall back -calling as our soldiers keep falling
No, forward, forward! I am not turning back!

May today become the day...
As I plunge into the gray
Lead is flying, all the signs are there
They all think that I am brave
The strongest link of our chain
But really I.. just want a bullet between my eyes
Aim high.
2. Ever-Frost (4:18)
[Music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, Lyrics: Lopakka]

The accusations and the blame
True or false, they seem the same
Filthy fingers, rising rose
And out of shit a flower grows
I'm amazed how damn low
People can go only by being themselves

Those with hearts of Ever-frost
Always know we never lost
Flames rose high...
Not enough to melt the ice
Tiny minds and virtuous whores
Bunch of morons with a cause
"Jesus saves?" - We will piss upon your graves

Three wise men came to the north
On they donkeys they rode forth
Whining I'd committed sins
Moaning I'm to everything
Still amazed how our whole trio on link
Can have only two brain cells

Those with hearts of Ever-frost
Always knowing ever lost
Acid rain, urine on your flames
Urine on your flames

Those with hearts of Ever-frost
Always know we never lost
Flames rose high...
Not enough to melt the ice
Tiny minds and virtuous whores
Bunch of morons with a cause
"Jesus saves?" - We will piss upon your graves

Placid rain, urine on your graves
3. We Are But Falling Leaves (4:29)
[Music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, Lyrics: Lopakka]

Think of your lifetime as one day
It's fading away
The shadows are growing long
Think of existence as a flame and death as rain
Storm clouds - they ride along

At life's eve our flames will cease
Eternally, unavoidably
Eventually all paths will lead
To the cemetery

We are but falling leaves in the air hovering down
On our way we are spinning around
Scattered fragments of time
Like blinks of an eye we are
That's all we are

Think of your lifetime as one year
Look autumn is here
Getting colder, the winter's impending
Your conclusion's drawing near-certain, austere
Yet is only the circles unending

At life's eve our flames will cease
Eternally, unavoidably
Eventually, all paths will lead to the cemetery
To the prior deceased

We are but falling leaves in the air hovering down
On our way we will hit the ground
Scattered fragments of time
Like blinks of an eye we are

Just when we realize that we are alive, we die
4. Her Last 5 Minutes (5:41)
[Music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, Lyrics: Lopakka]

Must have been a week
Since she drew the curtains down
I don't know if it's night or day
And I don't care
Our hope seems so bleak
But she's pulling through somehow
While I'm trembling in dismay, in despair

I can see you're scared and tired of all this
I can see the torment, the damage it has done
Still we both know what the other alternative is
Not yet, the only one

The good moments are breezed
And there's nothing I can do
When it comes onto her again
And does it worse

She shivers like a leaf
As the waves of pain heave through
The ruthless bringer of the end
Fears, preserved

I can see you're scared and tired of all this
I can see the torment, the damage she has done
Still we both know what the other alternative is
Not yet, the only one

Don't go yet, don't yet go
Not yet, my only one
Don't go yet, I can't let go
Not yet, my only one

"I can't stop the light from flaming the curtains white."
5. Where Waters Fall Frozen (0:59)
6. Despair-Ridden Hearts (3:41)
[Music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, Lyrics: Lopakka]

All bridges... on fire!
As onward and onward we ride
The smoke rises higher, higher...
Up the ever-darkening sky
So quickly everything swirled; descent of the world
Now it's all a chaotic ruin

Burning eerie, sapphire
The foretoken of closing doom
Glowing dreadful and dire, dire...
Is the ever-haunting moon
So sickly everything twirled; the end of the world
Now it's all a chaotic ruin

We came so far
So deeply wounded and so scarred our despair-ridden hearts
Frail as we are
Firmly united we will stand 'til the world falls apart
7. Vengeance Is Mine (4:16)
[Music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, Lyrics: Lopakka]

I am stunned, you caught me by surprise
It's so damn wrong, you outdid yourselves
Beaten numb, I didn't see you sneaking round the corner, how could I?
There is no sight in my third eye

When I'm done I will hunt you down
One by one I'll blow you all to hell
For you faceless, nameless, cowards, cannot hide
The day of reckoning will arrive

Strike from behind and knock me to the ground
Kick me while I'm down, stab me in the back, you bastards
Tear my heart out of my chest
I rise from the ashes, from these ruins of mine, from the rage
I'm right on your track you bastards
Dozen of eyes for an eye
Vengeance is mine

I have dreams of hammering your skulls
Fantasies of bashing in your brains
Obsessively I am watching, I am stalking, I am following
And then the massacre begins

Strike from behind and knock me to the ground
Kick me while I'm down, stab me in the back, you bastards
Tear my heart out of my chest
I rise from the ashes, from these ruins of mine, from the rage
I'm right on your track, you bastards
Dozen of eyes for an eye
Vengeance is mine

Strike from behind and knock me to the ground
Kick me while I'm down, stab me in the back, you bastards
Tear my heart out of my chest
I rise from the ashes, from these ruins of mine, from the rage
I'm right on your track you bastards
Dozen of eyes for an eye
Vengeance is mine
Dozen of eyes for an eye
Vengeance is mine
Vengeance is mine
8. A Long Way To Nowhere (3:27)
[Music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, Lyrics: Lopakka]

Approaching the moment now
Long hard journey in its end
Starting to loom right now,
The final round and then it hits you
It kicks you, it slicks you in hell

All the toil and all exhaustion
All those times we hated
All the losses, sacrifices
All those things were missed
All the suffering and distortion
Shit we tolerated
All that we abandoned
All for this

Our scattered hope fall down
The zeal turns to negligence
The shattered dreams all down
Crumbled around

That's when it shakes you
It quakes you, it breaks you
It kades you, it fades you
Degrades you in laughs

Enough, enough, too much is more than we can take
All those hits we took, persistence was in vain
Enough, enough, too much is all than I can feel
Down the drain
Just bitterness remains

It shakes you, it quakes you
It breaks you, it hates you
Degrades you in laughs

All the battles, all the dirts and victories we tasted
All the tension, all the misery and all the bless
All the passion, all the hurt and all the love we wasted
All the purgatories, all for this

There's nothing else...
9. Consider Us Dead (4:52)
[Music: Laihiala & SENTENCED, lyrics Laihiala]

Feel it... And how it's weighing in your hand
Cold and loaded
See it... Oh, how it's shining in my hand
Cold and loaded
I know I haven't got the balls to pull this through
And therefore I'm laying all my faith in you

Raise the gun, take aim and shoot me
Put a bullet through my head
Consider us dead
Raise the gun, take aim and blow me away
Squeeze the trigger, free the lead
Consider us dead

We're leaving... this human ruin behind
Too cold and empty...
Yes leaving... for there's nothing more I can find
In this cold and empty
The choice is mine so don't be afraid to pull this through
Just get a grip, I'm dying to get rid of you

Raise the gun, take aim and shoot me
Put a bullet through my head
Consider us dead
Raise the gun, take aim and blow me away
Squeeze the trigger, free the lead
Consider us dead

I know you haven't got the balls to pull this through
Just get a grip, I'm dying to get rid of you.
10. Lower The Flags (3:34)
[Music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, Lyrics: Lopakk]

He's gone, he is dead
His remains upon the hearse ahead
As silently we wander though the mist
He's free

This is the end
Your journey's over, night descends
Below... Into the abyss
Farewell, my friend, you will be missed

Lower the flags
A good man has passed
He has reached the last of frontiers
Lower the flags
Down to half-mast
For again the world has taken a turn for the worse

He's done, he is dead
Six feet of earth upon his head
Now lay your wreaths
Upon the one who lies beneath

Although you're gone
In memories you shall live on
Asleep... In peace now rest
The weight of the world is off your chest

Lower the flags
A good man has passed
He has reached the last of frontiers
Lower the flags
Down to half-mast
For again the world has taken a turn for the worse

That morning light I'll always remember
And these August nights: cold as December.
11. Drain Me (4:34)
[Music: Laihiala & SENTENCED, lyrics Laihiala]

Always pretending to want you
It's so easy to make you play my game
Always deceiving to get you
So goddamn easy to make you scream my name
No remorse, no repent
Still to you I'm heaven-sent

I don't need a reason to hate you
I don't need a reason to brake you
Just keep that mouth wide open and drain me, my darling
I don't need to care if you want me
I don't need to care if you need me
Just spread that pink wide smile and drain me, my darling

For so many years I've been faking
It's so hard to keep lying and smiling in vain
For so many years I've been taking
Innocence soiled, hey babe, your loss is my gain
No remorse, no repent
Still to you I'm heaven-sent

I don't need a reason to hate you
I don't need a reason to brake you
Just keep that mouth wide open and drain me, my darling
I don't need to care if you want me
I don't need to care if you need me
Just spread that pink wide smile and drain me, my darling
12. Karu (1:04)
[Music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, Line: Lopakka]

Moments Like these could be mistaken to think we are all one.
13. End Of The Road (5:01)
[Music: Tenkula & SENTENCED, Lyrics: Lopakka]

Here we are, now lay the burden down
We're coming to the end of our road
Sorrowful yet glorious somehow
To be humming this one last ode
So calm and still... it wasn't all that bad, or was it now?
Fulfilled... it doesn't only hurt to end it now

The funeral

The memories beneath the dust of years
They seem like those of someone deceased
There's no more to be done, or hoped or feared
Just waiting for the final release
So calm and thrilled... it wasn't all that bad, or was it now?
Still it doesn't only hurt end it now

Is life over, this life's over?
Or has it only just begun?
It grows colder, starts to moulder...
Coming apart yet still not done
Forever one
