In Death's Grip Lyrics

(4)
Submitted by level
1. Vindictae Dei (intro) (0:39)
2. The Crippler (3:28)
And once the blight infects your brain
You're done, you're lost, you're gone insane!
The pain consumes, damnation looms
You're on towards your dreaded doom
No light, just gray, no warming rays
No love to lose, no golden days
Then in the night abhorrent fright
The Welcome end nowhere in sight
Still in your mind you dream to rise
Yet always seem to fall behind

Paralyze your senses, crippling your mind
Broken and defenseless, silent, deaf, and blind
Baffled and deluded, bloodied, lost and lame
Banishment; excluded, alone with loss and pain!

Solo - Richards

So nobly we fight for both wrong and right
In conflict we are one, and so it has begun
The war is won, the battle lost,
In solitude we count the cost
We strive to fight, to turn the tide,
Yet triumph leaves us dead inside
Betrayal's scar, the phantom limb,
Innocence ripped away by sin
In time perhaps you'll come to yearn:
To live, to love, to grow, to learn

Paralyze your senses, crippling your mind
Broken and defenseless, silent, deaf, and blind
Baffled and deluded, bloodied, lost and lame
Banishment; excluded, alone with loss and pain!

Solo - Richards

Time heals yet these wounds still fester and reek
Tomorrow's confusion the bane of the weak
I beg you, the answer! This wisdom I seek...
Where is the justness, the mirth for the meek?

These broken souls forlorn, adrift in grief and scorn
A fatal dance with fate, salvation come too late
What's left to see when all are blind?
How do we bear with what's left behind?
To just live, it seems, will not suffice
Thusly damned we suffer life.
3. Serpent Reaper (5:11)
What vision, what spectre beguiles my night?
The serpent, the reaper, the slithering scythe
Why do you seek me, what summons this fright?
I've come to collect you, for that is my right
What madness! What horror!
What cruel hand of fate
Come now, don't linger, the maker awaits
Dark menace, harsh master, you fill me with dread
Perhaps then another to fall in your stead?

With stinging fang and deadly coil
A brutal scythe that clefts the heart
Soon your blood begins to boil
Your fraying sanity departs
And as you face your bitter end
The answer cuts just like a knife
All he asks is for your soul
He'll gladly give you back your life
Hand you your life...

What have I become now what must I remain?
An agent of fortune, humanity's band
To skulk in the darkness, the shadow of fear
To revel in dying and bask in the tears
Of innocent victims and battle-torn foes
To lead them to death and to suck out their souls
A god among vermin with death's grinning face
Both master and slave to this fool human race

With poison tooth and writhing coil
A killing tool without a heart
Eternal, fierce, deadly and loyal
My scant humanity departs
And as I face their final hour
At times I'm torn with bitter strife
I steer them down the darkened path
And then I take away their lives
I take their lives...

The days, the years, it's centuries now
Yes, still I did die on that day
Now withered and wise I've grown to despise
Creation and man's wicked ways
Fathers and mothers, their children
Scorned lovers, dear friends
The meek and the mighty
I've taken them all to their end
Princes and beggars my touch is a fate they will share
My one regret is reserved for the wretches I've spared

There was a time I believed in the lie
In honor, in fairy tale dreams
These visions of lives
Shattered in fate's cruel heaving tides
And I can't get them out of my eyes
My blade shapes a race of futility, loss and despair
This gift now a burden beyond what I ever could bear
I can not I will not suffer eternity bound to this place
To rain death and damnation
And end this foul human race!

(Solo - Richards Solo - Corrick)
4. It Ends Tonight (3:53)
Blurry mornings, ignored warnings, pain and woe foretold
Tainted visions, poor decisions bound to take their toll
Tensions mounting, a due accounting chills my spine
Serrated edge, a sinking dread, whisper in my ear...

It ends tonight

My world is spinning, there's no winning vile schemes take hold
Bruised and broken, words unspoken take their brutal toll
Vicious vengeance, bloody penance it claws at my throat!
Beaten, blind, then in my mind repeat the words he spoke!

It ends tonight

Now in pain I'm reeling, twisted flesh and bone
Certainly revealing, betrayed and suddenly alone
Now in my darkest hour, deepest blackest night
I quiver and I cower
As the creeping darkness overtakes the light...

Lost...is it a dream? Or...or is it my life?

Solo - Richards Solo - Corrick
Solo - Richards Solo - Corrick

Suddenly a nightmare rages through my head
The light so hot and blinding I realize that I'm not dead
Memories returning, some chill with frigid fright
I realize with horror death will come another night!
5. Bleed You Dry (4:42)
6. Bury the Cross (3:23)
7. In Darkness Consumed (3:28)
8. Death's Icy Grip (3:57)
9. Burnt Earth (5:13)
10. Sinner Without a Soul (4:20)
11. World of Ruin (3:56)
12. Take Command (Destructor cover) (3:59)
Ripping away from worthlessness
Coming alive with power
Take command and blast your way
They rob your mind
And steal your soul

Get the hell out!
It's time for us to take command
Kicking down hard!
Chain in hand I want command
I'm sick of your rules!
Time for us to take command
Metal at hand
The power we have
To take command

Keep your freedom tonight
Take command and stand up high
Raise the metal flag! March forth!
Show those muthas you control

Get the hell out!
It's time for us to take command
Kicking down hard!
Chain in hand I want command
I'm sick of your rules!
Time for us to take command
Metal at hand
The power we have
To take command

Take Command!
Take Command!
Take Command!
Take Command!

Metal and leather
-driving our own cause
Pounding and loud
-sweating thrash all night
Making it known
-yeah we're alive tonight
Ripping it out - showing our time
Has come C'mon - Let's Rip

Rise up high
Time to ride
Stand up tall
Never fall
Bound in chain
Side by side
Make a stand
Take command!

Take Command!
Take Command!
Take Command!
Take Command!
Command!
