Communion Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level LaClayne
1. Lovecraft's Death (4:08)
The cold comes
The rats in the walls break
The deadly sound of silence
As time decays
You try to name the unnamable
A whispererer in darkness

Our hound smells you
The haunter of the dark
Will come to take you to our realm
Your life, your books
March in front your closing eyes
Beyond the walls of sleep

Lovecraft in the realm of the dead

Obsessed with Necronomicon
The Arab's wicked dream
You found a path to Azathoth
And walked the Dagon's realm

Your friends were haunted too
Do you remember Charles?
Or haven't you heard
The music of Erich Zann
The call of Cthulhu we disguised
With notes and raving rhythms
To spread the seed of lurking fear
Into the heart of man

Lovecraft in the realm of the dead

Your time is out you saw too much
You used the silver key
You know too well that minds like yours
Can never rest in peace

You stared at the abyss
You'll never rest in peace

You'll never rest in peace
2. Anubis (4:18)
Come
Approach
My trusty jackal's nose
Don't try to lie
Cause I can smell your hide

Leave your body
Leave this body now
Your face can stay
Upon this golden mask you made

The brave in heart
Can claim eternal life
My scales of truth
Will need sufficient proof

Their balance depends
On how your soul weights
To walk with Gods
The jaws of chaos you must pass

Anubis
My soul is so light
And as this feather I can fly

Anubis
Don't let me wither and die

I am proud for what I am
The guardian of the dead
Appointed by the gods
To be their final judge

Anubis
Don't let me wither and die
3. Communion (3:25)
Alien faces
Watching me
Wearing wings
They come to drink

The ancient chalice
Raised so high
In a toast to those who fly

Fallen angels burn the night
Touch me with your hungry eyes

Send your thoughts between the realms
Sharing your eternal dreams

Communion

Some have seen your trembling lights
Dancing in the cloudy night
You appear as strange machines
Changing form, to fit the scene

Demons, angels, poltergeists
Laughing as they play with minds
Altering the face of truth
So that seems as lie to fools

Communion

There are things that can't be seen
They are the things that lurk within
If you seal the mystic bond
You will never be alone...

"I wear your horns with shameless pride
As a nailed crown
Upon the severed head of a king."

Watching...

Communion
Slay the false king
And claim the throne
4. Babel's Gate (2:58)
You build a tower
A giant mountain
Opened a God's gate
To reach the heavens
Only power
Rules this stargate
You make a statue
A golden idol
Holding his sword high
It will be placed up
Only power
Rules this stargate
All want the power
Now all divided

You speak your words loud
And cannot hear
What the others try to say
Blind confusion
Tongues now slay
Words are burning

Babel's gate
Human's reign
Babel's gate
Sky is on flames
Babel's gate
All in vain?
Babel's gate
Nothing same

Only power
Rules this stargate
All want the power
Now all divided

You speak your words loud
And cannot hear
What the others try to say
Blind confusion
Tongues now slay
Words are burning
5. We The Gods (3:50)
We, the gods - we, the gods - live high - to the heavens - right above your heads
We, the gods - we, the gods - hide well - it's so difficult to find us
Don't ever claim we are dead - we rest here and we guide you
You need to be controlled - so yes, we will direct you
Betrayers of our faiths - must pay the higher price
Damnation for the weak - salvation for the faithful
You pray and call our names - and think that we will hear you
Maybe, you don't deserve - an audience with your masters
We, the gods - we, the gods send dreams - to the humans of our choice
We, the gods - we, the gods - give signs
And you must recognize them
We, the gods - we, the gods - save lives
But we demand some sacrifice
We, the gods - we, the gods
Praise love - but also we know war
Hold the spear - face our enemy - abandon yourself - to the storm of the battle
We came in here - to live forever - we smell your flesh - and we smell your fear
6. Sunlight Moonlight (4:09)
Yesterday as I closed my eyes
My weight was left behind, the body paralyzed
It was a miracle, I floated as a ghost
And there I saw my self lying upon my bed

I stared down, I looked up
Then tried to pass the walls and drift to the unknown
It was the strangest call, as if I heard a soul
I felt the need to find a creature bleeding light

Sunlight / Moonlight

I climbed the sky, above the clouds
And there I saw some more
That answered to the call
Bright shining disks of light
With wings made from the night
The day had yet to come
And so a hunt begun

As my sun is now reborn
My mind awakes, the body is on
Remembrance will hold the door
Until the night will send her call

Sunlight / Moonlight
7. Persepolis (6:09)
Flutes and pipes / Play a drunken rhyme
Entertaining / The soldiers in the palace

Naked bodies / Female slaves from Asia
Dance with promise / For a night of pleasure

Mouths smell wine / The feast is going wild
Victorious and glorious / The men exalt their king
As in a fevered dream / Thais is entering
And she provokes him / To do a special deed

"You have conquered / The capital of orient
Display your power / And make your enemies weep
Destroy their pride / The jewel of the desert
As they once destroyed / Our temples for their king"

"Burn this city to the ground
Take a torch and spread the fire"

Persepolis / Now a pile of dust
A blackened carcass / A land of ash

Persepolis / You lost your crown
Persepolis / Burned to the ground

Consumed by hate / Ablaze by pride
Persepolis / Naked as the sand

Persepolis
You lost your crown
Persepolis
Burned to the ground

"Burn this city to the ground
Take a torch and spread the fire"

ΟΙ ΦΛΟΓΕΣ ΑΓΚΑΛΙΑΣΑΝ ΤΟΥ ΞΥΛΙΝΟΥΣ ΤΟΙΧΟΥΣ
ΣΑΝ ΠΕΙΝΑΣΜΕΝΑ ΦΙΔΙΑ
ΚΑΤΑΒΡΟΧΘΙΖΟΘΝΤΑΣ ΣΤΟ ΠΕΡΑΣΜΑ ΤΟΥΣ
ΧΕΙΡΟΓΡΑΦΑ ΚΑΙ ΥΠΟΛΕΙΜΜΑΤΑ ΤΩΝ ΠΑΛΑΙΩΝ ΧΡΟΝΩΝ
Η ΠΕΡΣΕΠΟΛΗ ΚΛΑΙΕΙ ΕΝΩ ΟΙ ΦΛΟΓΕΣ ΑΠΟΜΑΚΡΥΝΟΥΝ ΤΙΣ ΣΑΡΚΕΣ ΤΗΣ
8. Sangreal (5:17)
There's a sacred ancient cup
Filled with royal bluish blood

Sangreal, how real

In a family of light
Darkest secrets hide from eyes

Sangreal, how real

The elder blood
Still runs on the veins
The modern body
A cup from our skin

Dragon share your mystic soul
With your children
Make them strong

Sangreal, how real

In a family of light
Darkest secrets hide from eyes

Sangreal, how real

Immortal show your fangs
Reveal your hungry faces
Blood needs blood
Flesh needs flesh
Life for life, soul for soul

Immortals...

There is no hope
For the followers of lies
There is no hope
For the weak in the mind

Sangreal, how real

Sangreal...
9. Narcissus (3:59)
On the walls of Venus's temple
The tale of Narcissus and Echo
A beautiful young nymph
Sentenced to repeat
The last words of the others
Never to talk first

She fell in love with Narcissus
And followed him longing to speak
He said "Who is here" and she replied "Here"
He called for her saying "Come"
She just replied "Come"

As none came near, Narcissus
Called her again
"Why do you shun me"
She could only say the same

These words hurt deep
His pride his actions leads
"I would rather die
Than you should have me"

Narcissus went forth
To a fountain in the north
He kneeled down to drink
And then he fell in love

He said "Who is here"
His voice kept sounding "Here"
He called again the one
That couldn't ever come

His face was young and
In the crystal waters glowed
His smile was cold reflecting
Back a thought

"I would rather die
Than you should have me"
