Arise Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. Arise (3:18)
Obscured by the sun
Apocalyptic clash
Cities fall in ruin
Why must we die?

Obliteration of mankind
Under a pale grey sky
We shall arise...

I did nothing, saw nothing
Terrorist confrontation
Waiting for the end
Wartime conspiracy

I see the world - old
I see the world - dead

Victims of war, seeking some salvation
Last wish, fatality
I've no land, i'm from nowhere
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

Face the enemy
Manic thoughts
Religious intervention
Problems remain
2. Dead Embryonic Cells (4:52)
Land of anger,
I didn't ask to be born,
Sadness, sorrow,
Everything so alone,

Laboratory sickness,
Infects humanity,
No hope for cure,
Die by technology,

A world full of shit coming down,
Tribal violence everywhere,
Life in the age of terrorism,
We spit in your other face,

War of races,
World without intelligence,
A place consumed by time,
End of it all,

We're born,
With pain,
No more,
We're dead,
Embryonic cells,

Corrosion inside - we feel,
Condemned future - we see,
Emptiness calls - we hear,
Final premonition - the truth,

Land of anger,
I didn't ask to be born,
Sadness, sorrow,
Everything so alone,

Laboratory sickness,
Infects humanity,
No hope for cure,
Die by technology,

We're born with pain,
Suffer remains,
We're born with pain,
Suffer remains,
We're dead.
3. Desperate Cry (6:41)
Sacrifice is pleasure
When life ends in pain
Conceive the last mistake
Which belongs to all

Creation of insane rulse
All we hear:
Desperate cry

Death the coldest wind
Seeps into your pores
A nation born of hate
Forgotten distant time

Creation of insane rule
All we hear:
Desperate cry

Endless empty maze
Despair, distress and silence
A poison vacuum, infinity
Life, lies, deceit

Mute souls end in silence
Oceans tainted with blood
Empty promises of hope
Buried deep, infected ground

Creation of insane rule
All we hear:
Desperate cry

Cry!
4. Murder (3:27)
Chaotic violence in my eyes
This whole world moves backwards
Peace, another sign that lies
Life today is not worth the pain

On the radio, another homicide
Inmates suffocate in jail
Severed heads of revolt
I wish I'd never been born

Same hand that builds - destroys
Same hand that relieves - betrays
Same hand that seeds - burns
Same peace that exists - here lies

I can't trust anymore
Criminals within the law
I have something to say
Where I live, don't believe in another day

Heresy and graft
Apartheid
Same religion that saves - damns you!
5. Subtraction (4:48)
First generation born
A plague was created
The cure is in my mind
Solitude is all i see

Powerful nations repress feeling
Buried beneath the fear
Making you a coward
Buying your safety

Grey shadows fill your head
Stealing your last breath
Scared of the future
Prophecies of chaos

Subtraction of personality
Within the human race
You'll always be

Green castles from the past
Bleeding in sands of war
No man is immortal
History is no more

Confused leaders behind our backs
Stifling our ideas
Misunderstand signs of progress
Minds of time regress

Searching for an answer
To understand myself
6. Altered State (6:34)
Fear in my subconscious
Terror invades my speech
Faith in my own words
No one knows the nameless

Warm winds and burning tears
Spirits outside bodies

Endless repression by majority
A master without command
Strange new dimension disturbing my brain
Censored ideas, counterfeit answers

Shining blast, no perception
Altered state, no reaction
Shining blast
Altered state

Slow talk, fast thoughts
Ancient scriptures
Controversial lines
Knowledge changes

Running in the wrong direction
Crossing with blind eyes
I'm closer to myself
Sanity can't invade
7. Under Siege (Regnum Irae) (4:54)
The dual substance of Christ
The yearning so human
Of man to attain God
Has always been a deep

Inscrutable mystery to me
My principle anguish and source
Of all my joys and sorrows

Religion domain is all I see
Suffocate the scum with mediocrity
Lying and changing your fate
Anno Domini ends - misery

From my youth onward
Has been the incessant
Merciless battle between
The spirit and the flesh
And my soul is the arena
Where these two armies
Have clashed and met

Holy wars unleashing bloody raids
The sacred earth without a face
Consumed by murderous sinners
Psychotic leader
Insane - insane - insane - insane!

Living in a dying age
Persecute the human race
Triumph of death in the wasteland
Blood signs your epitaph

Religion domain is all I see
Suffocate the scum with mediocrity
Lying and changing your fate
Anno Domini ends - misery
8. Meaningless Movements (4:40)
Born with remorse
To a cold barren place
Battle between minds
Hungry for words of prey

Contradictory truth
Secrets in lies
Meaningless movements

Icons review their sins
Faith cheaper than thou
Doubting your ideals
Torment shreds your brain

Fearful fantasy respects the unknown
Turning your heart red
A requiem to celebrate... you

Words I can not understand
Shrieks in my moment of pain
Impostor hides behind a mask
My words against your lies

Turn my head
To see what I know
A shadow without form
Painted on the wall

Born with remorse
To a cold barren place
Battle between minds
Hungry for words of prey

Ono moment's mistake
False steps in the ground
Laws made by the blind
Ruling reign of light

Contradictory truth
Secrets in lies
Meaningless movements
9. Infected Voice (3:19)
Fear ties you up
And you don't grow
Being wrong and lost
No one admits the defeat

Conscience is fair
Unfaithful words
Betrayal and greed
Past thoughts to win alone

Envy - still strong
Hatred - still alive

From beyond - an empty world
Infected voice - a scream alone

Infected voice!

My throat is dry
A last cry tries to escape
Guilt and frustration
No time to turn around

Looking behind I'm not alone
Are they friends or enemies
Going insane without a cure
Scarring my eyes, visions lost

Remorse for the human race
Fear of becoming them
Envy the strongest feeling
Hatred still in their heart

Envy - still strong
Hatred - still alive

From beyond - an empty world
Infected voice - a scream alone

Infected voice!
