Figure Number Five Lyrics

Submitted by level 퀴트린
1. Rejection Role (3:35)
I'm the result of an ageless redemption
a body with a heartless convention
a face with a smile that's been shut down for years
facing the facts of my generation...cause
I'm a sinner, a winner, my blood is getting thinner
I might as well get another life cause I've been there
I know what's been said and I know what's been done
don't you tell me I'm the only one, cause I...

I will be there looking for something
Coming straight out of nothing, just killing time
Facing those walls so black, so vile
I really am waiting for nothing
Coming straight out of something, just killing time
Facing those walls so black, so vile

Now put your trust in a solid machine
Filled with words that have never been seen
A plague to insatiable souls left to die
Charged with mankind's raw energy
I rumble, I stumble
My memory starts to crumble
I can't refuse what's haunting my dreams
Have I stumbled?
On my way to a created perfection
I penetrate the gates of rejection

There's no determination, echoes of a failed gallery
There's yet extermination, inside us all screaming
2. Overload (3:44)
Still I'm spreading my disease
You'll work it out this time
Hell no, I won't retreat
Two times won't make it happen
Three times won't make it go
Overcome, make it run
I insist to make it flow

Now I'm chasing what I've learned
You won't be blind this time
Getting back what they have burned
Two times won't make it happen
Three times won't make it go
Overload, still it grows
I resist and make it flow

Trusting the ways of my vulnerable heart
A million times before I get things right.
So fragile it hurts when I just fall apart.

Still I wont get what I deserve,
Your search for dreams may falter
Paying back won't make it turn
Four times won't make it happen
Five times won't make it go
Overrule, from a tool
that brings me everlasting pain

Those thoughts are ruling my valuable time
In search for shelter I draw the lines
Won't you give me another break to examine
my growing and countless mistakes
3. Figure Number Five (3:12)
Tell it to me now, close your eyes
cause they don't feel a fucking thing
You gotta memorize what you felt
when you lost your wings
Your line is mesmerized, condition's paralyzed
Your chance to live is emphasized
Nor a truth nor a lie

Burn your flag, figure
The disciples of God want you to die

Figure Number Five
Caught in the hands of a human lie
Figure, Figure Number Five
Give it up, never stop till he hits the ground
Figure Number Five
The fifth wheel in a cynical time
Figure, Figure Number Five
They won't stop, they won't stop
'til he hits the ground

Their eyes are shut side by side
and you can't do a single thing
they will cease their time passing by
sucking blood out of kings

It's such a drag, I can't do nothing always there
I feel my welfare's burning...
4. Strangler (3:48)
I feel it coming, my thoughts are running
Cause I can't do nothing about it
I'm turning, turning away from filth
on my journey, stepping aside
from the breed that is burning
How did you get so unbearably stupid
How did you get your demons to rest
One final option, a senseless adoption
of a self-made confidence

Bow, to get rid of this
Bow, another fear to kiss
Bow, this is my soulful departure
Walk the lifeline with no regrets
Wasting it all on what you cannot get
Forever painful and so goddamn deranged
Make no difference don't make a sound
Make your choice out of what you've found
Forever painful and so goddamn deranged

Cause I might as well choke
Listen to the sound
cause I can't do nothing about it
Another round of their hysterical laughter
Plaguing my ears, causing my tears

Let's give another hail to the ones
that finally failed
Holding on to the truth 'til the very end
facing their very last stand.
5. Light the Torch (3:41)
Claiming he's an innocent soul
Son of a silent force
Under pressure but all so cold
I better light the torch
Cause he's able to do it again
degrade and suffocate
Getting the useful support
from his passive friends

How can you just proceed you little callous fuck
You just walk the streets like a not knowing breed

Give me a sign and I'll do just
what I'm thinking right away
How can she ever forget, so suffer and start to regret
It will come around cause you know that she'll
be thinking of you...
I feel so powerless. Can't face my hollowness

You've had your time. Gonna walk that line
Like a living travesty, endlessly bound to your sins.
I'll hunt you down in time. You're just a feeble swine
How can I compromise when all you do is deny

This pain will last forever, never growing old
Nobody will ever answer, how you can be so cold
6. Departure Plan (4:24)
You're taking care of your instincts
No matter what you do
Your life could be so much better when everything is through
The demons that refused to let you go
They leave with empty hands
You got to give it a try
Don't put an end to your life
Cause that's where you show your last sign

You gotta rise with me!
Cause you're so vulnerable... Me!
No need for sympathy now...
Yet so admirable... Say...

Your passion for art is your well hidden cure
Cause that's where you have a plan
Escaping could be such a movement now
In your fragile heart also true


... You'll never ever hurt yourself again!
7. Cranking the Sirens (3:26)
Underneath the surface he's bound to be back for more
Keep your eye on the trigger man
His hands are shaky, trying to find the score
Well, I see you have another friend
to drag down the hall
Watch him bleed on this freakshow Monday
Watch him crank the sirens tearing up his soul

And there it goes he's so close to a remedy
A painful host of his time
And he'll never show to the world
how his life's supposed to be
Drenched by the dark in his mind

Now there's nothing but silence surrounding him
Providing the contents of his unique
Misanthropical friend. Well (won't you tell)
If there's ever gonna be a state for your well-hidden art
Watch him breed on this freakshow Monday
Watch him crank the sirens tearing up his soul

He believes in silence
He believes that this is the end
He can't hear the sirens cause
silence is the greatest sleep of them all.
8. Brickwalker (3:45)
Brickwalker won't you cease your time
Instead of ruin daily lives
Against the grain they stand
Against the grain they fall
Paint them a picture of their fate
Face their fearless looks so pale
It's so goddamn beautiful...

You've already put your hands on their fate
Your mind is clear and your speech is free
Your doors are shut and they won't see
With your cynic presence they'll shiver
'til the break of dawn

Come on, come on, come on
They're so expendable

We're all so fatal, we're all too able
we'd like to have a break... SAY
We're all so tragic, illogical magic
we'd like to turn the page... SAY

So, watch them cross the yard of time
Do not fail don't cross that line
Inside, they will leave tonight
Vanish through the sky

Don't throw the page. Don't throw it all away!
Gotta turn the page. Just lead thy pain astray!
9. The Mindmaker (3:32)
Who dares to care when affection's all we need
Who dares to bare what the others have to feel
I put my trust in a prominent machine
Feel no pain and don't you dare to make a scene

The search for truth's just moving' on
everybody wants a piece,
denying the sound of their restless song
Keep your eye on where you've gone
I don't think that you belong. Escaping reality
won't set your judgement free.
Who'll hide to find the ultimate belief
Who'll ride the kind of perpetual disease
I thought that still every breath I take is free
I was so wrong they'll make a profit out of me

When you've lost your power
You drag yourself down
In times like these. You are here to devour
Now you feel so numb.

"God I feel so numb!!!"

So! eternal Cold! infernal
So! dispersal. One more time.
So! eternal Cold! infernal
So! dispersal. It rules your mind
10. Distortion Sleep (3:46)
In my town where the system sleeps
Nobody gives a damn
It's up to you how to hide or flee
Their hunger never ends
Hateful design builds the structure divine
A territory cold as ice
An endless empire with cynic desire
Born of a broken spell

Feeling like a guttersnipe standing in line
Deciding his lifestyle by rolling the dice
One will stand another will fall down
Find your way out from the constant lack [2X]

You gotta get yourself a picture of what is going on
Cause their lips are sealed now
Their honesty never to be found
Hateful design builds the structure divine
A territory cold as ice
An endless empire with cynic desire
Born of a broken spell

Your pride is just a symbol
another hidden excuse
for being such a savior
distorting your sick self abuse
11. Downfall 24 (3:55)
I bet you've had another downfall
It's time for me to get it right
You're taking it [5X] too hard
Don't hesitate to paint your walls with blood
It's in me it's in you, don't you hold back the truth
'cause I can't feel nothing without
a confession from you

We couldn't go on like this you know
We shared a moment that refused to grow

Cause I know we meant to never be afraid
but I knew: impossible...
We made our visions look like
something that would stay
So it's true we closed the deal...

I said to you don't make it worse now
It's time for you to make it right
I let you rule my world back then you know
I was blind, couldn't find
I was blind, couldn't find
the true essence of our lifetime
without a confession from you

You're saying to me:
How could you do such a thing
'cause I've paid, every mistake
building a void impossible to replace.
