Masquerade in Blood Lyrics

Submitted by level
1. Masquerade In Blood (3:19)
Flames of red they escape the fire
The battle rages on, violation of minds
Wiped out everyone who will stand in their path
Replacing the life by the foul stench of death

Corpses of the wicked
Wide-spreading grief and terror
The sacred rise above
Seeking to the ground

Deadringers, warmongers, hypochrists
Masquerade in blood

Like a new-born that squalls as it takes the first breath
He cries to the war because he ain't got no brain
Mounted on horseback the devil in man
This white livered general, this killing friend

Corpses of the wicked
Wide-spreading grief and terror
The sacred rise above
Seeking to the ground

Deadringers, warmongers, hypochrists
Masquerade in blood

With brutal destruction they scatter their bombs
Don't care about children who'll scream and burn
The shadows of murderer will cover the light
Producing the face that nevermore smile

Corpses of the wicked
Wide-spreading grief and terror
The sacred rise above
Seeking to the ground

Deadringers, warmongers, hypochrists
Masquerade in blood

This vulture will desecrated
By arrogance and deadly hatred
Their names are standing for the wrong direction
In a time when god gives no more protection

Corpses of the wicked
Wide-spreading grief and terror
The sacred rise above
Seeking to the ground

Deadringers, warmongers, hypochrists
Masquerade in blood
2. Gathering Of Minds (4:16)
You try to fly with broken wings
You take off high to avoid the death

Gathering of minds
Gathering of minds

Diseased thoughts, you get scared
Declining years, nuclearised

Gathering of minds
Gathering of minds

Put up a fierce resistance
To the slow decay in you
When you fall into the black hole
Your body and your soul
Vitalities are atrophied
Hopes that fade away
Worthless gets your life
Like driving up foliage

Gathering of minds
Gathering of minds

Gathering of minds
Gathering of minds

You go your way, you are not alone
And ending is your thorny road
3. Fields Of Honour (3:23)
Living spaces, contaminated
By all the fatal scrap
They'll coming down, materialised
Enchanted by the grace of god

They'll keep their eyes on you
To turn around the fool
Separate the chaft from the wheat
To save you from decease

Escapism, the end of the road
Last judgement's last decree
Lost games, wrong aims
Blue planet only leased

They'll keep their eyes on you
To turn around the fool
Separate the chaft from the wheat
To save you from decease

Falling on the fields of honour
Falling on the fields of honour

Betrayed souls, ruined lives
Common graves, eradication
Waiting for the end of time
In the battle of annihilation

They'll keep their eyes on you
To turn around the fool
Separate the chaft from the wheat
To save you from decease

Falling on the fields of honour
Falling on the fields of honour

Living spaces, deserted
You've lost the chance you've got
Human race, transiency
A thing of the past

They'll keep their eyes on you
To turn around the fool
Separate the chaft from the wheat
To save you from decease

Falling on the fields of honour
Falling on the fields of honour
Falling on the fields of honour
Falling on the fields of honour
4. Braindead (2:29)
A fateful day when you lost your mind
Pulsing blood but tour body won't die
They hold up the mirror to your face
New definitions to the human race
Preaching charity and mind over matter
Profit by your misadventure
Are you passed away when your lungs are breathing
Time to go when your heart is still beating

Braindead
Braindead
Braindead

Conditioned by vivisection
Cannibalised, no resurrection
Butchers covered by snow-white coats
To save your life and morbid thoughts
Acceptance by forerunners of hell
They know how to do and they do it well
To suppress the lies and all the facts
The truth about your final breath

Braindead
Braindead
Braindead

Braindead
Braindead
Braindead

A fateful day when you lost your mind
Pulsing blood but tour body won't die
They hold up the mirror to your face
New definitions to the human race
Preaching charity and mind over matter
Profit by your misadventure
Are you passed away when your lungs are breathing
Time to go when your heart is still beating

Braindead
Braindead
Braindead
5. Verrecke! (2:49)
Eine Klingel ohne Namen, nirgends registriert
Finistere Gestalten wohin man sieht
Am Tage noch da haben sie Versicherungen vertickt
Doch im der Nacht werden sie zu Monstern
Fernab von Frau und Kind

Verrecke!
Verrecke!
Verrecke!

Auf der Suche nach frischem Fleisch
Wie Wölfe im Schafspelz zu allem bereit
Leichen Pflastern euren Weg
Im Angesicht des Todes
Vom Goldrausch gelenkt

Reichtum und Wahnsinn, veränderte werte
Von Habgier geprägt, Mafiageschäfte
Mit Luxulimousinen durchs Revier
Und wer nicht spurt wird eliminiert

Verrecke!
Verrecke!
Verrecke!

Auf der Suche nach frischem Fleisch
Wie Wölfe im Schafspelz zu allem bereit
Leichen Pflastern euren Weg
Im Angesicht des Todes
Vom Goldrausch gelenkt

Doch irgendwann werden Jäger zu gejachten
Aus Herrenmenschen werden Sklaven
Eure Schreie verhallen ungehört
Denn der Tod wirft seine Schatten voraus

Verrecke!
Verrecke!
Verrecke!

Auf der Suche nach frischem Fleisch
Wie Wölfe im Schafspelz zu allem bereit
Leichen Pflastern euren Weg
Im Angesicht des Todes
Vom Goldrausch gelenkt

Auf der Suche nach frischem Fleisch
Wie Wölfe im Schafspelz zu allem bereit
Leichen Pflastern euren Weg
Im Angesicht des Todes
Vom Goldrausch gelenkt
6. Shadow Of Damnation (2:57)
I saw your face in the crowd
Impressed so deep inside my heart
Nothing gonna stop me now
Seduce this little whore

Your soul was dipped in venom
Your dignity with angel's words
Sweetness of your dirty love
That makes me feel so good

Refracting the light of my dreams
Darkening the sun of my hopes
Like silhouette of dissimulation
Like a shadow of damnation

Riding on a train I cannot control
Through all the pain, through all the sorrow
It's just the passion I demand
It's just the road that never ends

Refracting the light of my dreams
Darkening the sun of my hopes
Like silhouette of dissimulation
Like a shadow of damnation

You are acting on your playground
To see me creep and crawl
God-awful my dependence
Upon this greedy soul
Lacerated by your passion
The devil seems to be with you
Secret wishes, satisfaction
Emotions of a fool

Refracting the light of my dreams
Darkening the sun of my hopes
Like silhouette of dissimulation
Like a shadow of damnation

Like a shadow of damnation
Like a shadow of damnation
Like a shadow of damnation
7. Peacemaker's Law (3:24)
Don't be afraid of any man
No matter what his size
Just call on me, I will be there
And I will equalise

Peacemaker's law
Thumb-buster's draw
Peacemaker's law
A bad boys war

Don't shoot a man into his back
Ignore his warning signs
Give him a chance to turn around
Maybe you will decide

Peacemaker's law
Thumb-buster's draw
Peacemaker's law
A bad boys war

Never face the fact that you
Throw down the gauntlet to me
Your persuasion I don't care
My sight gives you the creep

Peacemaker's law
Thumb-buster's draw
Peacemaker's law
A bad boys war

I'm not afraid of you my friend
No matter what your size
Just call to him in time of need
And he will equalise

Peacemaker's law
Thumb-buster's draw
Peacemaker's law
A bad boys war

Peacemaker's law
Peacemaker's law
8. Murder In My Eyes (2:37)
Give me a sign that you exist
At the threshold of entrance
I'm filled with hopes and yearning
To find a way beyond the death

Condemned to leave this awful world
Don't try to stop me I'm resolute
To commit suicide
You'll see the murder in my eyes

Something whispering in my ears
"Come on take my hand"
Rising up to the other side
Recovered from the bad

Condemned to leave this awful world
Don't try to stop me I'm resolute
To commit suicide
You'll see the murder in my eyes

Locked up in a hidden room
I have to pay the price
Carried away by the end of the light
Wonderful to die

Condemned to leave this awful world
Don't try to stop me I'm resolute
To commit suicide
You'll see the murder in my eyes
9. Unwanted Youth (3:33)
Born in bad relationships
Growing up in gutters to learn the tricks
At daggers drawn with all the laws
Don't know what the rules are for

Unwanted youth
Unwanted youth
Rebellion to society
Searching for a war
Unwanted youth
Unwanted youth
Cowards of the revolution
Burn them to the bone

Just your breathing call up the enemies
To the battleground in dusty streets
If you will get the upper hand
To save your right that you demand

Unwanted youth
Unwanted youth
Rebellion to society
Searching for a war
Unwanted youth
Unwanted youth
Cowards of the revolution
Burn them to the bone

Crime on rise the gun is your toy
Starting to blast you believe in your way
Fighting with your own insanity
Between the devil and the deep sea
Who promised you it would be easy
Just follow me and you will see
The shattered dreams of an intact world
That seems so empty and absurd

Unwanted youth
Unwanted youth
Rebellion to society
Searching for a war
Unwanted youth
Unwanted youth
Cowards of the revolution
Burn them to the bone

Born in bad relationships
Growing up in gutters to learn the tricks
At daggers drawn with all the laws
Don't know what the rules are for

Unwanted youth
Unwanted youth
Rebellion to society
Searching for a war
Unwanted youth
Unwanted youth
Cowards of the revolution
Burn them to the bone

Unwanted youth
Unwanted youth
Rebellion to society
Searching for a war
Unwanted youth
Unwanted youth
Cowards of the revolution
Burn them to the bone
10. Mantelmann (2:10)
Als Knabe stand er vor dem Spiegel
Berauscht vom Duft der ersten Liebe
Es waren diese Träume da
Er spürte das es anders war

Das erste Mal das ich es tu'
Vielleicht schaut mir ja jemand zu
Was ich berühr so Androgyn
Das sollen auch die Anderen sehen

Mantelmann

Dort steht er hinter einem Baum
Wie ein Scherenschnitt des Teufels
Kinder schliesst die Augen zu
Missachtet seine Worte

Wer is der Schönsten im ganzen Land
Bleibt stehen und schaut mir zu
Ihr könnt auch kommen mich zu berühren
Wie ein Tier im Streichelzoo

Mantelmann

Eines Tages gummizelle
Nackt und hinter Gittern
Ein Schild auf dem Geschrieben steht
"Bitter nicht mehr füttern"

Wer hat angst vor dem bösen Wolf
Wer fürchtet sich im dunkeln
Doch seid gewarnt ich komme wieder
Mit euch im Wald zu munkeln

Mantelmann

Wer hat angst vor dem bösen Wolf
Wer fürchtet sich im dunkeln
Doch seid gewarnt ich komme wieder
Mit euch im Wald zu munkeln
11. Scum (5:24)
Do you see
All the dreg of humanity
Rank and file
That looks at me
Creeping out of gloomy holes
Like dirty lousy rats
Soiling up this peaceful place
With all their rotten shit

Scum
Scum

Every inch
Misantrophists
Holding in contempt
The dignity of man
Coloured whipping boys
Victimised by their foolish hate
Defenceless like a toy
When they go to their fate

Scum

Marching off
With the flags of lies
Get their ashes hauled
In a dreadful fight
Unscrupulous rapes
Beyond the grave
Embodies ghastly sights
Signed by cowardice

Scum
Scum
Scum
12. Hydrophobia (3:23)
I'm a powerkeg, ready to explode
Never admit defeat in the last resort
You better run to set you free
Because my bloodlust jerks my mind to kill

Don't search for help under attack
I bite like a dog perfidious like a rat
My eyes are blind, uncertain way to go
No force on earth can stop me now

Infected victims lumbering you way
You go right off the track, nobody escape
Pugnacious like a beast
Confessions in the dark
Hydrophobia

I want to hear your plaintive screams
That sound's so nice in my wildest dreams
I will never separate the sheep from the goats
Just want to see everyone in hell to roast

Infected victims lumbering you way
You go right off the track, nobody escape
Pugnacious like a beast
Confessions in the dark
Hydrophobia

What is the use of your cry for help
Nobody hears the screams when you get scared
I can't explain how good it feels
But the day will come when I have to leave

Infected victims lumbering you way
You go right off the track, nobody escape
Pugnacious like a beast
Confessions in the dark
Hydrophobia
13. Let's Break The Law (2:56)
[The Anti Nowhere League Cover]

I'm goin' out on the streets and I'm feelin' fine
But if you wanna fight me and I don't know why
Yeah I wanna get dirty all covered in mud
But you turn on me all I see is blood

Let's Break the Law here tonight
They wanna lock me up and throw away my key

I'm out with my lads and I'm feelin' mean
Well we ain't that good and we ain't that clean
We don't really care if you're black or white
But we'll do it now until it's light

Let's Break the Law here tonight
They wanna lock me up and throw away my key

Let's break the law tonight
We're givin' the law tonight
We'll settle the score tonight

Let's Break the Law here tonight
They wanna lock me up and throw away my key

I'm goin' out on the streets and I'm feelin' fine
But if you wanna fight me and I don't know why
Yeah I wanna get dirty all covered in mud
But you turn on me all I see is blood

Let's Break the Law here tonight
They wanna lock me up and throw away my key
