Threads of Life Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Redemption (4:17)
Intimidation, I stand before you now.
Hold my ground, you won't strike me down.
A validation of all the blood I spilled, survived of my will,
There's nothing to say,
Yourself you have betrayed,
We must try to seize the day,
All the world will hear you,
Our voices can't be bound,
All the world will hear you,
Redemption in the power of the sound,
Interpretation,
Of all the thoughts I shared,
Draw you near,
Creating all your fear.
A brand new nation.
For those who persevere.
The future is so clear
2. Burning the Lives (4:04)
3. Stormwinds (4:50)
Fighting to control my mind. But tragedy is all I find!
The panic builds up from deep within the subconscious mind.
Always thought that the pain would end with the passage of time.
No matter how many layers deep you try to hide yourself.
They will crack and peal away to reveal something else.
From the past we must break free. Come to terms with all that tortures me.
Tragic memories invade. Let the storm winds wash them all away.
I will be the only one who is left to decide.
There will be no more that is left for compromise.
Break away from the curse of man's original sin. Turn away as you stay hidden behind a twisted grin.
Tragic memories invade.
Let the storm winds wash them all away. Purified I stand before the flames.
As the ashes cover yesterday.
Imprisoned by actions of the past. No use holding on.
4. Failure of the Devout (5:25)
I am the heir of a damned kingdom. Born into a legacy of regret.
Searching for the promise of salvation.
Overwhelmed by the tides of our despair. Been pulled deep into chasm.
By the grip of our desire.
THE GRIP OF OUR DESIRE. Must escape the weight of this depression.
The choices that lead you to dismay.
Who would save those who condemn themselves? CRIPPLE! Cripple your own savior.
The failure, The failure of the devout.
Set in motion by final sacrifice. Change begun in the name of righteousness.
Infiltrated by greed, lust, and hatred.
Once more corrupted by the hands of man. Been pulled deep into chasm.

By the grip of our desire. Must escape the weight of this depression.
The choices that lead you to dismay.
The handsome mask of the devil. The lure of the cross! Of the dark!
You violate the sacred with your greed.
Prey upon people's misery and needs.
With your greed, With your greed, With your greed!
I am the heir of this damned kingdom.
Born into a life of regret. Searching for a promise. That's no longer kept.
5. Venomous (3:31)
I only wanted to. Kill the pain and sorrow. Instead I buried you.
And killed the happiness in me.
Can you hear the laughter. Coming from my grave? Suddenly it seems to me.
That I am my own worst enemy.
We can never hope to breathe. In this misery. Full speed with blinders on.
Never stopped to see the horror.
I think you always knew. I'd drag you down to hell with me.
Suddenly it seems to me. That I am my own worst enemy.
We can never hope to breathe. Tangled in this misery. Think of all I've said and done.
All the fights I thought I won.
Another scar for the chosen son. The ungodly one. How can I.
Purge this venom from my veins?
Your sweetest suicide. Drags you in and flips that switch. As you fade away.
With the breath of every hit
6. Another Hero Lost (4:04)
7. Final Call (6:48)
Seeing it all. Heeding the call. Lost! Without hoping to be found.
A willing exile, I turn away.
Rather face the endless silence. Than the hopeless and fear of today.
The ashes choke the sky.
Death's swift hand in disguise. Awaiting the final call. No use hesitating.
ARE WE. Fearful of how dark it's grown.
The emptiness surrounds. WILL NOT BELIEVE. Refuse to think I'm on my own.
Who will be CAST OUT?
Trust in the lies that held you bound. Their twisted values lead you astray.
They disgrace the world with violence.
Leaving bitterness despair and decay
8. Dread Uprising (4:14)
Reflecting on this life. Through the eyes of ancients. The wisdom of beyond.
CHANT! Chant them down.
DOWN! Into nothing. This power screams out from within. Like the tree's that struggle towards the sun.
Once again in due season we are reborn. Strike down the heathen. THIS MUST END.
Swaying deeply in rhythm with the winds. There are eternal lessons within it's pulse.

Raising their false banners of hope. Lies everlasting. Fighting to save their self interest.
DREAP UPRISING. An End to it all. DREAP UPRISING. Watch as they fall
9. The Great Collapse (1:36)
10. Just Another Nightmare (4:55)
The echoes creep into your dreams. Torn awake from your sleep.
Unholy nightmare of savagery.
THIS CAN NOT BE! The warmth soaks into your fingers and soaths away the pain.
Frantically replays the days.
The tattered clothes still drape your fame. Crimson cloaked memories.
Blood soaked destiny.
This can not be the way it seems. Incapable of these things. Lost of hold of demons inside of me.
(The damage is done) The desolation that's inside of us.
The violence lurks beneath the skin. (Beneath the skin)
Do not be fooled by the quiet. (What I've become) The silent killer dwells within.
The conclusion comes crashing in.
This is happening once again. Can it be that I am capably murderous
11. Forevermore (5:18)
The threads of life start to tear. Hang above the pit of our despair.
Seems the end is growing near.
The life you knew will disappear. Every human life will overlap and interwine.
Create the fabric and the destiny of all mankind.
START THE FIRES TILL THEY SURROUND. They start the fires burning until they surround.
Is there nothing left. Worth fighting for?
Forever more. Beneath the waterline. Sinking further down. I dwell in silence now.
Awake and face the truth of all that you have lost.
A tongue tied explanation raining down from scattered thoughts.
START THE FIRE TILL THEY SURROUND. They reinforce their doubts until they draw blood.
Forever more. Beneath the waterline. Sinking further down. I dwell in silence now.
Forever More. I will leave this world behind.
Finally I drown. I dwell in Silence now
