The Cleansing Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Revelations (Intro) (0:33)
2. Unanswered (2:15)
How much must I curse your name
And put your beliefs to shame
Before you prove yourself
And end this life?

End this life

And I’ll say a fucking prayer
Because I know it won’t be answered

Where is your god? (2x)
Where is your fucking god?

And even though I don't believe in you
I pray for the day (2x)
That you end this life

So please
Take me
Away

I want the hand of god
To come and strike me down (2x)

Where is your god? (2x)
Where is your fucking god?

For all the prayers that go unanswered (2x)
Why do you think that is?
For the families that waste their time
Open your eyes

And all your prayers will go
Unanswered
Why do you think that is?
For the families that waste their time
Open your fucking eyes
3. Hands of a Killer (4:14)
A fucking murderous son of a gun

Look down at your hands
Look what you have done
You've taken the life of your own son
You've taken the life of your own son

You've got the hands of a killer just like me
You've got the hands of a killer just like me

The lowest form of human life
The lowest form of human life
This world breeds killers just like you and me
This world breeds killers just like you and me

So look down at your hands now
How does it feel to take a life?

And yes they'll be more of your families dead by tomorrow
And yes they'll be more of your families dead by tomorrow

So rip these hands away from me
Rip these hands from my sleeve
So take these hands away from me
Please take these hands from my sleeve

This is what we do and have done forever
This is what we do and have done forever
More of your families
Dead by tomorrow
More of your families
Dead by tomorrow
4. The Price of Beauty (2:46)
Holding you down, down by your throat,
Just enough to keep your fucking mouth shut!
Can't stand to hear you scream god,
Because he's not fucking here bitch!

And how does it feel now?

Don't worry you're not another rape victim,
It's just me destroying your beauty.
Don't worry you're not another rape victim,
It's just me destroying your beauty.

And how does it feel now?
How does it feel now?

That I'm ripping out, all of the fake pieces in your face.
That I'm ripping out, the fake pieces in your face.

And what will you do now,
Once all of your beautiful skin,
Is in my pockets? (Is in my pockets?)

What cosmetic will fix this mess?
What cosmetic will fix this mess?
Fix this mess!
Fix this mess!
That is now your face?

Was this all worth it?
For your fake fucking beauty.
Was this all worth it?
For your fake fucking beauty.

The price of beauty was more than you thought.
The price of beauty was more than you thought.
How does it feel now?
How does it feel now?
The price.
The price.
Was more than you thought.
5. The Fallen (4:07)
I once thought that I had found the path
For so long i believed in all your bullshit
I once thought that I had found the path
'Till the day when i needed you

And with their hands held high
They waited for you to be by their side
With their hands held high
They waited for you, but you just watched them all slip away

Into this translucent haze (2x)
I have fallen of this beautiful horse
Into this translucent haze

I lost all hope
I lost all fucking hope

So I guess you can say that I'm one of the fallen (2x)
We are the fallen (2x)
And hated
We are the...

With their hands held high
They waited for you to be by their side
With their hands held high
They waited for you, but you just watched them all slip away
You let them fall (2x)

With their hands held high
They waited for you, but no one grabbed their hands
You let them fall

I can't believe they have wasted so much time in a prayer
So many hears and words have been wasted
False hope and the addiction to searching (2x)

I have fallen off this beautiful horse and lost all hope and heart
You let them fall (5x)
Off of this this beautiful Horse (2x)
6. No Pity for a Coward (3:15)
Dry your eyes
Hide your face with your hands
One last breathe
Hold it in

Fuck your past
The future
Is in your hand

Just sit back and relax
Put your fucking shades on
Put that gun to your head
You're a fucking disgrace

Can your god save you now? (6x)

You coward (4x)

Drowning yourself
In your tears
No one has
Pity for you

Pity for you (3x)

Seconds from the end
What's it gonna be
Pull the trigger bitch (4x)
7. The Disease (4:23)
I'm the one man army (2x)
Of disease
I'm the one man army (2x)
Of disease

The creation that is sickness
This is time to destroy everything and never rebuild (2x)

I am the disease (2x)
I'm a disease
To the world (2x)
I'm the plague of
Disaster (2x)

And I'll continue to move foward
Like the monsters of money
Crime, crime and deceit (2x)

This is time to destroy everything and never rebuild (2x)
I'm the one man army (2x)
Of disease

We've brought this world to its
Knees (2x)
We've brought this world to its
Knees (2x)

Now it's spread like wildfire (4x)
Wildfire (4x)

This world is dead, let it die (4x)

A fucking sick disturbing race
A closed-minded existnece (2x)

We are the fucking sick (2x)
It's the plague of us
And we're the disease
Of this disaster
You call your world

This world is dead let it die (2x)
So shut the fuck up
Shut the fuck up
And let the killing begin
8. Bludgeoned to Death (2:34)
You’re worthless, you plague humanity
Be nothing without me
Your curses try to get back to me
But still there is no time

Bludgeoned

Your curses with thoughts and narration
For what I say
Hope you listen

Your cursed with thoughts and narration
This is what you get
I made you smile

And doctors won’t be able to recognize your fucking face!

Be, be nothing, be nothing without me

How could you think that I was joking
But I’m not, be nothing, be strong, without me
But still curses crumble as we let this happen
We can’t let this happen
As we all come down
We can’t

Because (2x)
You abide by something funny
What’s funny now?
You abide by something sacred
You found it gone

Inside (3x)
Your curses die
Inside (3x)
Your curses die
9. Girl of Glass (2:34)
Composed of an element so weak, so frail
Every time she reaches for the sky, she fails
The escape from her shattered existence
Lies above out of her own reach
But still sinking further and further
Into her own self-pity

The crack, the cut, the shattered tears
That hit the pavement (2x)

In this crumbling existence, like a champagne glass
Held together at it's last seams
Held together at it's last seams

With every try there's a little more bleeding
As her heart is leaking

The crack, the cut, the shattered tears
That hit the pavement

All she wants to do now is finish this
Tip the glass to the floor
Watch it shatter

In this crumbling existence, like a champagne glass
Held together at it's last seams
Held together at it's last seams

So she will strive and strive reaching for the sky
As she cuts and bleeds
Waiting for the day she strives to be
This broken glass thrown into heaven
10. In a Photograph (4:32)
Screaming your name into the sky
Into the sky
Screaming your name into the sky

Were you just going to sit back
And watch him die? (2x)

He screamed your name straight to the sky
He screamed your name everyday

Rescue him from the fall
Rescue him, take his hand (2x)
Take his hand (2x)

I remember the day and every sound and smell of it (2x)

I remember the day
Just like it was in a photograph (2x)
Where nothing ever changes and always stays the same
Where nothing ever changes
The memory stands still

You let him fall (4x)

Screaming your name into the sky
So I tried
And I screamed (2x)
Lord can you hear me

And I was left without reply so i walked away
You let him fall (3x)
You let him...

Without your response
I blame you
For this loss of love and life
11. Eyes Sewn Shut (2:59)
Sewing the eyes shut of the man who saw god
And ceasing the lies that spill from his jaw (2x)

He won't be able to hear where the screams are coming from (2x)
Sewing the eyes shut of the man who saw god
And ceasing the lies that spill form his jaw

It's just an endless abyss of pain and torment
And he will wonder where the screams are coming from
And how does he know
Their cries (2x)

Because it's your fucking flock heading to the butcher (2x)
As the tears began to burn like acid
As they spill from his eyes (2x)

Sewing the eyes shut of the man who saw god
And ceasing the lies that spill from his jaw
And as I toture and kill
The ones who followed him
In his lies (3x)
Followed him in his lies
12. Green Monster (3:42)
Moving Forward, Moving Faster

And every day it grows
Forcing these scavengers to trail in its wake
Feeding upon the scraps
Of torn paper (2x)
And leftover change

Charging forward
We watch as it passes
Crushing everything in its path

Nothing can ever stop this campaign
Not when everything in life revolves around this pain
The rich get richer, the poor get poorer
This monster moves

With no end in sight
This is what we created
With no end in sight

Creator of crime
Creator of deceit

After it passes what will be left?
There’s nothing getting better
Just worse and worse (2x)

Nothing can ever stop this campaign
Not when everything in life revolves around this pain
The rich get richer, the poor get poorer

For those of you who contribute to its growth
You’re only feeding this oil empire
Like throwing gas into this fire (3x)

Moving forward (2x)
