Vindication Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Cage of Remembrance (4:53)
Inside your mind it dwells
the secrets of your past
Now you suffer inwardly, yet so silently
You fight the morning light
that shines in through the wall
Then it strikes you in the dark
There is no way out of here
You crane your neck, and twist your head
The voices call for you
As your skin starts to crawl

Now you sit here in the dark and the cold
You had it coming once you sold your soul
I`m here to make sure your sins aren`t forgiven
No absolution and salvation in sight
Bow down, open wide
Here I come

Pray, fall away, tribulation
Lay, everyday, agitation

Forget the trinity, deliverance denied
Your ass is mine until the day you die
I am the keeper, the punisher of bastards
Lick my boots and don`t you speak a word
Bow down, open wide
Your blood is fuel to my destruction machine
So believe you`re in the cage of remembrance

Pray, fall away, tribulation
Lay, everyday, agitation

Inside your mind it dwells
The secrets of your past
Now you suffer completely, and oh so cowardly
You fight the morning light
that shines in through the wall
Then it strikes you in the dusk
There is no way out of hell
You close your eyes and sense the end
The voices call your name
As your skin starts to crawl

Lay down and die
2. The Bitter Man (4:33)
As you roam deep within the twilight
What do you see
No lights fortold of and definitely no peace for you
Now this is your sad story I`m about to tell

Tolerance, forgiveness
Was a lacking ability in you
Intolerant, unequal
Your solution was always to run away

I thought I knew you
I thought I wanted to be you
And to think I almost became you
An ideological man such as you
Should be nothing but swept away for good

I never meant to fail you
I never meant to break you
But it happened
And I`m sorry I can`t change it

Do you believe me
Can you understand and forgive me
This was your destiny
And I`m sorry I can`t change it

I never wanted this
I never dreamed of this
For you there`s no return
And I`m sorry I can`t change it

Why couldn`t you just realize
That an act of justice would come and take you away
Unless improvement was displayed
And consequences of former misdoings accepted

I never meant to fail you
I never meant to break you
But it happened
And I`m sorry I can`t change it

Do you believe me
Can you understand and forgive me
This was your destiny
And I`m sorry I can`t change it

I never wanted this
I never dreamed of this
For you there`s no return
And I`m sorry I can`t change it

As you roam deep inside the twilight
And look back at me
What do you see
The bitter man
3. Anguished Scream (For Vengeance) (4:47)
Will I ever find myself again
Will I ever feel your presence here again
Just as long as you let me try to heal
Could you show me what`s inside your mind

Is there something you should tell me now
Is there something you regret about me
As I tighten the grip around your throat
Please tell me what`s inside your mind

Did it ever occur to you that I really cared
I don`t think it did
You never gave a damn if I lived or died
So now you`ll pay

Do you think it`s funny to laugh at my face
I think you do
You thought you would never see me again
But here I am

Is there something you would like to tell me before you die
4. Petrified (4:48)
Come along for the ride
Don`t waste anymore time of your life
Foolin` round with your endless shit
Going crazy, going blind
Is this the way you wanna live
Looking back at worthless times
With the future so vast
Thinking wrong, feeling fine

What was it your father once told you;
"Get your life in order son!
Or else things you do might come back to you times ten!"

The fire will not take you higher

Be brave, be strong
Where you stop is where I begin
Death will surely come
What you do in between is your thing
So get a fucking grip
If respect is what you want

The fire will not take you higher

I never needed no helping hand
So why should you, are you too weak?
Sit back and review your life
Was it really worth the effort?

And then the paranoia takes you
And it leads you to your grave
You can`t escape the death grip
Even though you try

Be brave, be strong
Where you stop is where I begin
Death will surely come
What you do in between is your thing
So get a fucking grip
If respect is what you want

And then the paranoia takes you
And it leads you to your grave
You can`t escape the death grip
Even though you try

I forgot to mention
I really don`t care if you make it
I can`t help you no more
So you`ll have to go your own ways
To reach your fire
You`ll have to choose the right path
5. The Bounty Hunter (4:45)
Someday, somewhere
I`m gonna catch up with you
Someway, somehow
You`re going down

You may believe you`re gonna get away
But you can`t hide from me
I`m all around and I`ll find you
Don`t think you can run away
On the run you won`t get far
Turn your head I`m everywhere

Someday, somewhere
I`m gonna catch up with you
Someway, somehow
You`re going down

You know I`m out to get you
Your head for a price, ain`t it nice
I believe you said something wrong one day
Made your presence unwanted
And then became the hunted
What a fool

I`m all around and I`ll find you
Don`t think you can run away
On the run you won`t get far
Turn your head I`m everywhere

Of course I don`t care who you are
What you`ve done, what you`ve said
I don`t give a damn who you are
I take pride in my work
I`ve done this before

Your cry for mercy is noticed
And written down for reference
In this, the hour of your death
I`ve got no time to listen to your prayers
I`ve got a goal, to complete my work
I am the one, the bounty hunter of mankind

Someday, somewhere
I`m gonna catch up with you
Someway, somehow
You`re going down

I don`t give a damn who you are
I take pride in my work
I`ve done this for ages
You see, they call me the Bounty Hunter

Of course I don`t care who you are
What you`ve done, what you`ve said
I don`t give a damn who you are
I take pride in my work
I`ve done this for ages
6. Completion (4:42)
In a time where chaos rules the world
We should collect and not dismiss
We just destroy ourselves with the needs we have
Why can`t we all just wake up

Man`s craving for dominance
Is what will bring us to our doom
All other alien races consider man to be scum
They think of earth as a wasteland

Will we ever see
Will we ever know
Time will never end
But our being will

You`ll never find god
You`ll keep the dream
From start till end
Too hard to understand

Get your ass in second gear
Smell the roses they`re soon not there
The worst is yet to come
The universe will implode
Face the truth the end is near

Will we ever see
Will we ever know
Time will never end
But our being will

Before time the universe was not there
But a virus hatched, stability disturbed
Our whole system based on a coincidence
It`s soon over cause mankind came last

And God is a virus
7. Warmaster (5:13)
You that walk in the night
You are afraid of the light
From a glorious, fearless knight
To a shadow of a man, beaten in a fight
Once granted the power of steel
The promise you made, never to kneal
Great warriors you slayed
Upon their crosses they prayed
With one stroke of your sword death they would feel

You that walk in the night
You are afraid of the light
From a glorious, fearless knight
To a shadow of a man, beaten in a fight
Once granted the power of steel
The promise you made, never to kneal

Enter the castle, reclaim your name
Open the door for him, beg for mercy
Recklesness shines through his eyes
Every bit of him cold as moonlight

By the end of the day you`ll all be dead
Doesn`t matter how much you adore him
He will still strike you hard
Whenever the master speak
The soil shakes, the beast awaits
The fields are his to claim again
Step down and worship the Warmaster

Great warriors you slayed
Upon their crosses they prayed
With one stroke of your sword death they would feel

And beg for forgiveness not
Your prayers makes it worse
As the coming of masters
Brings times and tales of chaos

Downfall, a play it is
Doomed are the blessed
Whichever path you choose
You will forever be posessed
A game of hazardous battles
And blood for reward
The ultimate weapon
Is back in the masters horde
Warmaster
8. Dead Man's World (3:47)
Take a good look at me
Tell me what do you see
Can you see me at all
I push, but you don`t seem to fall

I do not cast a shadow
I feel nothing, so hollow, why?

Still you refuse to find out what is wrong
Cause you sometimes feel that something lurks behind you

Your friends do not see you
Your child sheds another tear
But still you don`t understand
You`re in a dead mans world

Do you think they would walk through you
If you really were there
Don`t you think they would talk to you
If they could hear you screaming

Your friends do not talk about you
Your child can`t remember
No longer among the living
But you cling on to life

Do you think they would walk through you
If they could hear you screaming

Do what you have to do now, let it go
It`s time you step out of this dimension and go back to your own
It`s time to realize now, you`re in a dead mans world
9. Cast Life into Fire (4:09)
Tension is what you look for
What you crave and what you live for, but couldn`t find
The power it will provide and give you
Is enough for a mortal man

Cast life into fire
This is the end my friend
There is no way turning back
Once you shoot up, then you give up
There is no need to come and cry

Do you see, the fading image of me
Can I believe, that your story is true
What do you want
There is nothing here, except a path and the end

Imagine a life without it
You could never have existed your own way
But since you chose this
Then know that the demons are for real

Cast life into fire
This is the end my friend
There is no way turning back
Once you shoot up, then you give up
There is no need to come and cry

Do you see, the fading image of me
It`s the last you will see
The answer to all your questions
Is right here beside you if you would open your eyes

With the morbid knowledge
That you threw your life away
Would you stand before a jury
And admit you`re a looser, a goddamn fool

What did you get out of your short tragic life
And the friends you left behind
Once you shut up, then you give up
There is no way back for you

Do you see, the fading image of me
Can I believe, that your story was true
What did you want
There was nothing here, except a path and the end
10. Bleed Yourself (4:54)
As you reach for the gun and look into my eyes
As you enter the darkness and prepare to search your mind
Could I be more specific
I need you to open your eyes
This is not the way out
You`ll have to trust me I`ve been there myself

This is the time to recollect your life
Don`t ever rest your case
Just pick a different place
And seek the things you`ll never find
bleed yourself, it just doesn`t make sense
You should meet yourself halfway

If you try and fail you can at least be proud of that
Cause what you`ll find on the other side is not what you seek
Could I be more specific
I need you to hold onto life
But despite my advice you pull the trigger
and fall to the ground

Stop, where are you going
Gotta get you out of here now
This is the end
Gotta get you safely back home

Stay, don`t fade away
Gotta get you out of here now
Don`t you give in
Gotta get you safely back home

This was too close, hope you`ve learnt your lesson by now
I can`t always be there for you everytime you`re down
Could I be more specific
I need you to give me a break
And if not you will be
Just like history to me

This is the time to recollect your life
* Don`t ever rest your case
Just pick a different place
And seek the things you`ll never find
bleed yourself, it just doesn`t make sense
You should learn to meet yourself halfway
