Retribution Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. The Path to Imminent Ruin (1:13)
2. My Demise (6:59)
The blood drips from your nose
With every lie you told
And with all you took from me
You're beggingfor insanity

Thought I died in my sleep last night
It's just wishful thinking
The pain build behind my eyes
So I will just keep on drinking

No wrong or right
Just wasting your life

Fading into sleep
The patterns all repeat
As you hide inside your lies
Inside your lies! My demise!

Something you'll never know
A secret left untold
I'd rather let you down
Then ever let you go!

The darkness never seems to stop
It's constantly creeping
No more light, no more lies
Deeper into hell I'm sinking

No wrong or right
Just wasting your life

Fading into sleep
The patterns all repeat
As you hide inside your lies
Inside your lies! My demise!

As we wash the blood away
Day breaks on another day

Wasting your life
No wrong or right, fading into sleep
3. Still I Rise (3:57)
Stop searching the sky for answers
And look within
Our greatest gift
Is the life we are given

This is the price you pay
For throwing your whole life away

How can you know yourself
When your world is just a lie

Still I rise!
From the ashes
Look Inside
Search for meaning
Truth cannot survive

I feel the hate inside you
I watch it burn
You heard the warnings
But you, you never learned

This is the price you pay
For throwing your whole life away

How can you know yourself
When your world is just a lie

Still I rise!
From the ashes
Look inside
Search for meaning
Truth will not survive

Watch it burn
The hate inside you
No return
Ignore the warning signs
4. War (3:40)
Until the philosophy
That holds one
Race superior
And another inferior
Is finally and
Permanently discredited
And abandoned
There will be...

War!
In the east
War in the west
War!
Up north
And in the south
Prepare for war!

Until the color of a man's skin
Is no more significant
Then the color of his eye
There will be war...
There will be war...

War!
In the east
War in the west
War!
Up north
And in the south
Prepare for war!

Prepare for war!
Prepare for war!

And until that day
The world will not know peace
We will fight if necessary
And win this war...
And win this war...

Prepare for war!
5. King of Nothing (4:15)
It was gone before you ever had a chance
lost forever in your disapproving glance

I see your face
it's twisted with shock
falling from grace
you deserve what you got

The ice surrounds you now

You can't pretend
all that you want
I've seen the pain
and all the evil you brought

Quit your fucking crying
and swallow all your pills
your not the only one
with the urge to kill
grab the dusty bottle
and let the liquor spill
devoid of life
death is your final thrill

Bloodshot eyes
can see right through the selfish lies
search forever for a fix that keeps you high

I see your face
it's twisted with shock
falling from grace
you deserve what you got

My hands around your throat

You can't pretend
all that you want
I've seen the pain
and all the evil you brought

I am the king of nothing
over emptiness i reign
drown the sorrow
wash away the pain
6. The Taste of Fear (4:08)
Slave to your seduction
Open myself to sweet destruction
Pray for your affection
Still I welcome this rejection

Tear it down
Into ruins
It comes around
The taste of fear

When I see your face it haunts me
The cold embrace, deceiving
Surrounded by misery

It's become to easy
For someone like you to lie
Always searching
For a better way to say goodbye

It's so hard to listen
The hateful words you've always written
All the lives you taken
All the people you've forsaken

It's become so easy
For someone like you to lie
Always searching
For a better way to say goodbye
The taste of fear
The only thing that gets you high
With no regrets I will let this feeling die
7. Embrace Annihilation (5:11)
Embrace the end
As we descend
Deeper into the fire

The pain that you feel
The nightmare is reeling you in

Grasping, crawling, clinging to life
Holding on to illusions
Tearing, feeding, tasting the blood
As you savor the killing

Welcome, welcome to the apocalypse
A twisted smile upon the Devil's lips

Strike out the sun
Winter's begun
Bringing the death of desire

Shatter the seal
The horsemen of doom ride again

Grasping, crawling, clinging to life
Holding on to illusions
Tearing, feeding, tasting the blood
As you savor the killing

Welcome, welcome to the apocalypse
A twisted smile upon the Devil's lips

Embracing
Embrace annihilation
Embracing
Embrace annihilation
8. Picture Perfect (3:55)
I watch it all collapse
It never seems to last
As long as I need it to

A beautiful mistake
A wound without a trace
Was it ever really true?

We can't see the future
We can't rewrite the past
Tried to hold it captive
But it faded all too fast

Is it much too late
To save yourself?

Memories keep calling
Deeper into fear I'm falling
Lost within my mind it haunts me for so long

Trapped beneath the glass
Never a shadow cast
A perfect picture's all I knew

Lost within the struggle
Never felt so much alive
Gave into the rapture
Didn't care if I survived

Is it too much late
To save yourself?

Memories keep calling
Deeper into fear I'm falling
Lost within my mind
It haunts me for so long
All my hope is dying
Even though I keep on trying
Lost within my mind
It haunts me for so long
9. A Public Execution (6:07)
The end
Spent my whole life dreaming
Waiting for the end
My end
Gave myself no reason
For the violence in my hands

Fuck the dreams I'm holding onto
Fuck the path that lies ahead
Fuck your ego
Fuck your comfort
Fuck it all until it's dead

Fuck it all [x4]

The time has come
For you to pay
For all you've done
Our public execution
Violence has come
Until this revolution
You will pay with your blood

Feel the failure
It's easy for you to run
Screaming
Staring at the power of the god

Fuck the wings that lie before us
Fuck the bloodbath has began
Fuck excuses
Fuck denial
Fuck it all until it's dead

Fuck it all [x4]

The time has come
For you to pay
For all you've done
Our public execution
Violence has come
Until this revolution
You will pay with your blood

Your time has expired
Destroying your empire
Your time has expired
Destroying your empire

Fuck the wings that lie before us
Fuck the bloodbath has began
Fuck excuses
Fuck denial
Fuck it all until it's dead

Fuck it all [x4]

The time has come
For you to pay
For all you've done
Our public execution
Violence has come
Until this revolution
You will pay with your blood

Your time has expired
Destroying your empire
10. Dead and Gone (6:35)
The dream inside of me
Is a death inside of you
You're redemption was being diffrent
We last way too late
That your laugh was always fake
It bends until it breaks
Illusions we've forsaken

A vision still remains
Of a world that lost and can't be saved
It's a chance we have to take
Our only chances are the ones we create

Waiting for this day to come
Thought I'd be left for dead
But the light still shines ahead
The whole world has come undone
Though we will carry on
Until your ways are dead and gone

The answers can't be seen
And hatred's all you've had
Living lie for the tangling
See through all the lies
Destroy your last disguise
Defend to survive
Refuse to compromise

Way to replace the pain
And make a stake we're all the same
Escape comprehend leave behind
And follow it till the echo dies

Waiting for this day to come
Thought I'd be left for dead
But the light still shines ahead
The whole world has come undone
Though we will carry on
Until your ways are dead and gone

The dream inside of me
Is a death inside of you
You're redemption was being diffrent
We last way too late
That your laugh was always fake
It bends until it breaks
And mends you dream forsaken

A vision still remains
Of a world that lost and can't be saved
Escape comprehend leave behind
And follow it till the echo dies

Waiting for this day to come
Thought I'd be left for dead
But the light still shines ahead
The whole world has come undone
Though we will carry on
Until your ways are dead and gone
