A Predator's Portrait Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level 퀴트린
1. Bastard Chain (4:02)
Searching for power,who is to blame ? You weak little
bastard - bound to symbols of pain,Hiding in shadows,a
pungent smell,You haven't decide your own fate cause
your story of life is too bitter to tell Your dying eyes with a
cowards reflection,Heading for the true direction, forward
to die !

[Chorus]
Bastard Chain, with souls so lame the bastards chain Bastard
Chain, with souls so lame A Bastards chain [x3]

So you say your mind belongs to them ? - turned upside
down again and again and again Feel ashame ,feel ashame,
Yourself to blame,yourself to blame - Only yourself...Only
yourself you can blame! only yourself you can blame ! [x3]

[Chorus]

Helpless you will devour,everything that comes before your
eyes Citizens of restless power,never let your scorn rule
your fate...Your fate!! ...always dragging you down,to the
ground,A disgrace,a disgrace,your "masterpiece",your
"masterrace" - only yourself,...only yourself you can
blame !! Only yourself you can blame ! [x3]

[Chorus]

Hey!Won't you tell me your name and justify your way of
thinking Walking the stairs of the manipulated ones - only
yourself,...only yourself you can blame!! Only yourself you
can blame ! [x3]
2. Like The Average Stalker (4:30)
I think you just forgot to tell me why,Why I was fading out
again Why my mask of sanity was slipping off again, my
friend Beware of hatred when your time stands still

[Chorus]
Like the average stalker Forge to forgive Like the average
stalker [x3]

I'm just sliding,disappear into the night Like a strange and
a forgotten light One,two,three,four and I'm at your door
Calculating infinity In my silence where no one else can
hear,What is right,what is wrong (right,wrong) In
my silence where no one else forgives Where the sane
and insane strikes together as one

[Chorus]

Where is the fire,it makes no sense at all I'm just
hiding beneath the hour Disabled through affliction I
can't reach out Reach out,reach out In my silence
where no one else can hear What is right what is
wrong (right,wrong) In my silence where no one else
forgive Where the sane and insane strikes together as
one with a violent work of art I proceed,in this lack of
faith I get what I need,what I need!

[Chorus]
Like the average stalker,Forge to forget,Like the
average stalker,Like a silent talker,Like the average
stalker
3. Needlefeast (4:07)
Well,it's one for the money,two for the show it makes
no difference where I'll go Push injections in my skin
To make my mission begin Needles to fly,needlefeast,
needles to die,needlefeast Gotta get inside,gotta get
inside,needles to die needles to fly Burning up my
hunger,lay it all to rest! Waking up my hostile pain,
put it to the test When all is said and done I tell you
I'm the one The one to reign supreme I'm like a
brickwall I'm a solid player and I'm standing tall Who
can make me fall On this very road...Needles to fly,
needlefeast,needles to die,needlefeast Gotta get
inside,gotta get inside,needles to die needles to fly
Fly!Fly!Fly!

[Chorus]
This life I cannot face it,with the writings on the wall,
this time - it's hard to face it As I'm screaming what am I
doing here ?!!

I bite the days like a suctionpump Another breath,
another punch It makes me catch my breath Needles
to fly,needlefeast,needles to die,needlefeast Gotta get
inside,gotta get inside,needles to die needles to fly Fly! Fly!
Fly!

[Chorus]

Before you steal my breath away I like to know if I was led
astray Neurosis comes to me at night,It holds the truth
cause I'm... one for the money,two for the show
Straight to hell is where I go! [x3] Go!Go!Go!

[Chorus]
This life I cannot face it,with the writings on the wall,this
time-it's hard to face it As I'm screaming... What am I doing
here?!! [Repeat]
4. Neurotica Rampage (4:44)
Neurotica you player and daughter of mine
Don't you think I know what's all behind I suck on your evil
punches that my grants soul tumble and roll You give me
strength to break my chains Demonic assaults is all that
remains - raising hell within my veins,claim it's right to play
those games you're making me repeat myself again - bury
the hatchet,light my torch A true believer,a deadly force
you're making my sore eyes live again The wrath of my
demon Is all that I can give back to you No use for solitude It's
better to be burned And not to learn that your master will
return You give me strength to break my chains Demonic
assaults is all that remains - raising hell within my veins,
claim it's right to play those games,you're making me
repeat myself again, -bury the hatchet,light my torch,A
true believer,a deadly force,you're making my sore eyes live
again

[Chorus x 3]
Hear! hear them say it's so clear,What's behind and so near
Hear them say it's so clear...,That you're one of them

Look at the inside and tell me that everything there is so
sane You're so affective and only got your roots to blamed
You give me strength to break my chains Demonic assaults
is all that remains - raising hell within my veins,claim it's
right to play those games you're making me repeat myself
again - bury the hatchet,light my torch A true believer,
a deadly force you're making my sore eyes live again

[Chorus]

You give me strength to break my chains Demonic assaults
is all that remains

[Chorus]
5. The Analyst (4:43)
Straight forward on the path of life,Who makes you choose
that way Is it a crime to give it all up,To leave it all behind
Oh...this is all so crystal clear Going on in shallow blindness
To watch the madmen sort things out No time to spill,Isn't
it such a thrill? By self-deception I am bound to take it
seriously I'm way beyond,I've put myself in such horrible
way to go

[Chorus x 2]
I think you just made a big mistake...This is just a fake cause
I am,Guilty by association,sinner of mankind,I'm forced to
build my life upon this,hidden path I just can't find.

Well...is this all so crystal clear?
Sometimes it seems like time stands still Demolish myself at
free will,Can you watch me burn As the sun goes down and
my life is overturned,Can I identify myself with the
judgement that I'm facing here Can't deny,won't deny that
I'm level with the ground by fear

[Chorus]
Punished and banished I kill the ways of life You predict and
restrict my views in the hands of time

[Chorus]

You wear the face of desperate man displacing his fatal
actions Refuse to recall the miserable times of stupid and
naive attractions Going on in shallow blindness To watch
the madmen sort things out No time to spill,Isn't it such a
thrill? By self-deception I am bound to take it seriously I'm
way beyond,I've put myself in such a horrible way to go

[Chorus]

I think you just made a big mistake...This conversation's over
The a**lyst may have won this case of,discrimination and
nothing but lies,This fallen era makes me wonder,Is it worth
it when your dignity dies
6. Grand Failure Anthem (5:20)
Look at the pale face in the sky It seems so ravaged inside
the sense of rage is burning my eyes,burning in my eyes,
burning to deny I'm apart of a fallen machine Which
reflects my life of misery - please guide my way through
fallen galaxies Grand Failure anthem - you'll never see what
you've become we want to get some well-earned respect
before we choke Well,there isn't anything that will kill our
lust,our lust for power...they say: "may you get an hour in
heaven before the devil knows your dead!" Grand failure
anthem - you'll never see what you've become we'll never
get some well-earned respect cause we have..Failed!Failed!
Failed!,Ripped another spine 'til the end of time Failed!
Failed!Failed! We're being flushed down the drain

[Chorus x 3]
And the one you hate,will suddenly be yourself,and it's all to
late...

Anything,anything what will Make my conscience clean Is
there anyone out there,who can restore what we have
destroyed? Grand failure anthem - you'll never see what
you've become we'll never ever get some well-earned
respect cause we have...Failed!Failed!Failed! Ripped
another spine 'til the end of time Failed!Failed!Failed!
We're being flushed down the drain

[Chorus]

Disruptive and bound to kill itself The face of earth will turn
When you're crawling to the cross And your inner thoughts
reveal themselves Grand failure anthem - you'll never see
what you've become we'll never get some well-earned
respect cause we have...Failed!Failed!Failed!Ripped
another spine 'til the end of time Failed!Failed!Failed!
We're being flushed down the drain...

[Chorus]

So you have died,you pale face in the sky The rage is
burning...burning my eyes I'm blind Grand failure anthem
- we'll never see what we've become we'll never get some,
well earned respect.......
7. Structure Divine (4:07)
Cause I can't find pleasure anywhere,this life is strangling
me if I would turn myself inside out would I find peace of
mind,would I find peace of mind? And when the silence
remains And all the fields stays the same It isn't different
from the power that it holds Now,where is the pain?,As I
gaze between my desires There's a shadow and a bleeder
every once in a while,Can't you see my eyes they're
trembling Beware the millions of senses locked in this rusty
cage,a fanatic rage this time I will stand still and no blood
will be spilled

[Chorus x 4]
Yeah,I think I'm loosing it [x2], - back to normal a feast on the
moral,served on a silver plate...[Repeat]

And when the silence remains And all the fields stays the
same It isn't different from the power that it holds Now,
where is my pain? A big hail to my sadistic pleasures They
saved my soul for a special price As I begin to fade, the
creature cries So I'm heading for another one that will
watch me raise my bloodstained banner No questions asked,
No question asked

[Chorus]

A competition that will last until the silent one will speak So
this is it,is this the century sun? Mother of destruction,
please let me be the one to know Father of my pure
aggression,don't cut the way where I will go
8. Shadowchild (4:39)
I lick the surface of a freedom ride Under a hammering
light....I scream!!! Let's roll the dice of the future,burning
in my hand,I've built destruction upon the velvet skies
Maybe I'm strong,maybe I'm wrong

[Chorus x3]
Lead us,Shadowchild - soiled bu your faith in disguise
Shadowside - reflecting the eyes

I'm raising hell,a magic spell Pain and pleasure
together as one,I will recall,I will recall When I'm
down the stairs....I spit human cries,I can feel when
they lie My sun being one with the...universe Hear my
call

[Chorus]

Creating my crown from the millions of lights I'm
abused beyond recognition Pre-Millennium futuristic I
predict you all to live Under an individual sun We're all
collecting our senses and run...

[Chorus]
Lead us,Shadowchild - soiled bu your faith in disguise,
Shadowside - reflecting the eyes,Lead us,Shadowchild
- the truth's lying far from your life,Shadowside -
reflecting the eyes...
9. Final Fatal Force (4:59)
Forevermore,fucked,strapped to the floor Headlong
while I'm pissing on your floor Nameless,clueless a
brick in the game Soon to be removed from the face of
the earth,Is this a human feast? I was in
slumber...now! Am I to be released?,Way down in my
electric pit Where all you gimps reign supreme Where I
by your strings are dangling Twinkle,twinkle,dangling
tip,tap,toe Is this a human feast? I was in
slumber...now!,Am I to be released? At least I had a
hunger for more!

[Chorus x 2]
Final,fatal,fatal force, -feed the flame once more
Final,fatal,fatal force - to get rid of yourself

This final verdict with a diabolical view Can I ever be
free from what is pulling me through Narcissistic,pure
electric the savior incarnated Is this a human feast? I
was in slumber...now! Am I to be released? At least I
had a hunger for more!

[Chorus]

So you say I'm just a wicked soul,well watch me
operate!!

So you see me coming back for more You trace my
steps like a dawg Nameless,clueless a brick in the
game Soon to be removed from the face of the
earth Is this a human feast? I was in slumber...now!
Am I to be released? At least I had a hunger
for more! [repeat]
10. A Predator's Portrait (4:32)
A lesson in democracy,I will never,never be,A
servant of a moral standard,a rebel soul for the free,
I scream and I burn,I deny what I've learned,Can't
fight what's inside,on this blasphemous ride,Here I
stand!!

[Chorus:]
Cause he will remain,will remain the same,he's
apart of the game and he will remain

As I cry for more,The angels burn their core,Let the
evil saints have their way,When I'm heading for
oblivion.Achieving my goals in every way,In
malicious ways I hail the insane,Nevertheless:my
broken promises,I scream and I burn,I deny what
I've learned Can't fight what's inside,on this
blasphemous ride,here I fall!

[Chorus]

Now,take a look at the predator's portrait
Cause these walls are closing in!

Now,take a look at the predator's portrait
Cause these walls come tumbling down [x2]

Come watch me bleed one more time!,No
substitute left to find!,All that I hear is what I
preach!,A mighty soul is what I keep!

I step on the face whose dragging me down,Fed up
with the precious talk,Like a sinner revealing
himself again,Now his down and out,and ready to
strike,his ready to strike,his ready to strike,to clear
his very inside

[Chorus x2]
11. Asylum Dance (4:16)
Can you see me crawling,
Down the trail of despair
Forgot how to cherish myself
Painful writings everywhere

[Chorus:]
I can see strange things coming over me
I can feel

Stare into my eyes believe me
I'm the one to forget what's right
As the blazing fire awakes
I turn to stone, there is no fright
Heavenly pleasures grants my desires
I'm totally lost
Demolation of the human nature
No matter what the cost

[Chorus]

Everytime I loose my judgement
You try to grab a hold of me
Vem fan ar du, jag gor vad jag vill,
medans tiden star still

[Chorus]

Watch me dance as I'm totally lost
One step closer to infinity

A great pretender, a face of an angel
Buried alive, alive!

Watch me dance as I'm totally lost
One step closer to infinity

A great pretender, a face of an angel
Buried alive, alive!
