Monolith Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Out from Below (6:58)
Surrender to me
I lust for your purity
I am a thorn
Cutting you with every embrace
I will take what's mine
My greed knows no bounds
I need to feel alive
I need to see through your eyes

Stone prison
Salt poured into open wounds
Two faces

Possession
An immortal trophy
I will multiply your emptiness
Possession
I will watch you sink to my depths
This is how it begins
Where it will end
Vow unto me or suffer the consequence

I need to see your despair
A blank expression and a lifeless heart
Coffin nail crown
Cutting you with every movement
Silenced and numb
Delicate skin pale and frozen
I need to feel alive
I need to take what's mine

Black out the sun
I don't need light to know you're suffering

Endless winter
Confined and locked away
If you follow me down
I will lead you astray
I will make you forget

Fill me with your pain
I need your to hurt so i can feel something
I will drag you into darkness
2. Fear the World (5:20)
Submit to the truth and try to
Break free from this hell that surrounds me
Daylight engulfed and consumed
By a vile black swarm
I've seen all that I know disappear
Fleeting away on the wind
Ripped from my grasp with no words passed
You gave me no warning
Gave us no warning

Stay within your comfort
Confined to the shadows

For you will always fear what's out there
Fear the world until you're gone

Pulling you down blindfolded and bound
Dragged to the depths of the core
Forced into eternal majesty
If only you knew what darkness ascends
Coming to take you away
The years spent in denial would not mean a thing
Given no warning
Given no warning

For you will always fear what's out there
Fear the world until you're gone

You will come to realise you were never truly alive

If you deny your existence
Life will pull you back in
The faster you fall the deeper you sink
The the quicker you'll leave this all behind

Your cross to bear is a burden you won't realise
So see this as a blessing in disguise

Let the blackened smoke fill your lungs
Breath it in
One day this will bury me as I buried you

Fear the world
Fear this world
3. What Dwells Within (5:02)
Biding Time
For what as felt like centuries
Dead ends in front of me
The sting of reality strikes down

And still you keep it in

The weakness you hide
Consumes your life
Carry the weight down to your grave
And wait for Death's hand

Paralysed and waiting endlessly
Is it something I will never find
A thirst never to be satisfied

I watched you take the strain

The weakness you hide
Consumes your life
Like a search that never ends
Your existence is unexplained

It ignites the flame inside
What makes you feel alive again
Is to understand what it means to die

Is it something I will never find
A thirst never to be satisfied

Winds arch over me
And waves crash down to drown everything

Is it something I will never find
A thirst never to be satisfied

It ignites the flame inside
What makes you feel alive again
Is it to understand what it means to die
4. Behind the Sun (5:01)
In years to come
Everything will crumble
Within your palms
It is all an illusion
How could you have been so blind
In years to come
The skies will conspire against you
Say farewell to the beacon that shines
It has left you behind
I've seen the sun
Burn out beyond its years

In years to come
Everyone will turn on you
Within an instant you're on your own
How could you have been so blind
They will leave you behind

I've seen the sun
Burn out beyond its years
As time peels away
I found the truth was safe
i don't owe a thing to this world
This world belong to me

I am beyond death
Time has taken it's toll
A vision so clearly tangible
Reality draws to a halt

Why look for an answer
If you refuse to let go
You're living a lie

I've seen the sun
Burn out beyond its years
As time peels away
I found the truth was safe
i don't owe a thing to this world
This world belongs to me.
5. The River (5:33)
A silhouette in the light
A face hidden beneath a bone veil
The winds sound like a distant voice
A wolf in sheep's clothing
A martyr beneath a mirror

Every whisper i hear
Every breath down the back of my neck
Senses can be fooled so easily
But this runs deeper
This is in my bones

Counting down the days
Dragging out the weight
Blurred lines evade the light
A wolf in sheep's clothing
A martyr's disguise

Every whisper i hear
Every breath down the back of my neck
Senses can be fooled so easily
But this runs deeper
This is in my bones

I could have sworn you lay in the ground
In my sight
Yet so far out of reach

Take this misery
Drown in with my memories
So they can never be found
Follow the river down
To where the waves break

I just watched the waters rise
And take a life.
6. Monolith (5:02)
Tired eyes
Shocked into a daze
The monolith rose from the ground
And the sky was red
Like the soil in my grave
The earth shook with the tides
And caused storms through endless seas
Tell the gods to gather their clouds
To amend this broken dream

Dead to the world
Cast a silent revolt
The slaughtered black sheep
No hope comes as I dream of light
I clench my fists as I sleep
I've lived a thousand lives
Seen horrors through a thousand lies
Dig deeper
Through clawed hands you'll find
No end in sight

I'm so tired yet sleep is no redeemer
When every breath hurts I'll breathe even deeper
7. Paradox (6:08)
New light breaks the sky
Echoing through the dawn
Keep your eyes fixed ahead
Days pass with every tide

As the crow flies
Walk on the wind Everything will unfold
There is nothing left for me
The life we wanted does not exist
We're numb to the core

Slipping further down

There was nothing to guide me
I've searched through and through
By the time you read this i will be gone
Just follow the path I've laid out for you

We're all living a lie
When nothing is tangible
We'll be dead inside
We weren't made for these times

Slipping further down

There was nothing to guide me
I've searched through and through
By the time you read this i will be gone
Just follow the path I've laid out for you

why they come for you
there will be no pity
No hesitation
When they come for you
Don't give in so easily

When this world crumbles
You will endure the everlasting emptiness
Alone.
8. A Dying Vine (5:57)
Give in to endless deceit
Skeletal face
Crooked mouth

I once felt the life in you
Through clenched hands ripped apart

Eternally out of reach
A separation
A dying vine

Death was but a dream
But how quickly dreams become reality

Denied

Drained of all belief
Planting a seed of weakness within
When there's nothing left to bleed
It will start again

Is there no end?
Never awaken from this dream

Denied

Souls upon souls
No way to transcend
Eternal gloom
If this is truly life then make it end

Nothing can turn back time
Nothing, nothing can keep you alive

Wherever you are
Know I will carry this always
A reminder of pain
I know I'll see your ghost again

I still feel those cold silences
Broken by your footsteps

Nothing can turn back time
Nothing, nothing can keep you alive
9. All is Not Well (4:29)
Concede to the ways of the world
Tragedy and unprevailing woe
For every fabrication
There is truth you will never now
Feel their spies
Crawling under your skin
When the wind screams
All is not well

Forbid the sins
And watch the heart grow with desire

Wise man become kings
Or they would have you believe
On man's failure is another man's glory
Feel their spies
Crawling under your skin
When the wind screams
All is not well

Forbid the sins
And watch the heart grow with desire

And nothing will change
Flood it all and keep it away
When the days grow colder
Nothing will change
Nothing will change

Free us
From Season upon season of misery
This is misanthrope
This is the world i see

Free us from season upon season of misery
This is penalty
This is the price I've paid

This is the world i see

And nothing will change
Flood it all and keep away
When the days grow colder
And the colour fades
Nothing will change
Until this season ends.
10. Born Anew (3:49)
Perceive new life
A third eye
Phantom limb
Cut out your heart
To wash away the stain
I see everything
For i am the seas
I am the sky
I am the sun

And i will pull you in
To show you new life
To open your eyes
It's all falling to pieces
Beneath your feet

Life is pain
Defined by a lie
Exist to defy
If I'm heading that far down
I'm talking you with me
I am the seas
I am the sky
I am the sun

And i will pull you in
To show you new life
To open your eyes
It's all falling to pieces
Beneath your feet

Clouding your judgement
Your obsessions will eat away at you
The blind leading the blind
Into a convergence.
11. Enshrined (19:16)
Hide my path
Conceal every movement
Corrupt their sight
Lead me back to you
Lead me back

I've searched endlessly
But nothing could ever bring me closer
A prisoner of your own will
There was always something hidden from me
Buried away
Nothing is what it seems
Nothing is what it seems

Hide my path
Conceal every movement
Black out the stars
Drain the rivers dry

Your face haunted me
Your voice turned to poison
A shadow of your former self
Is there anything inside
A remnant
A reminder
Or is it all buried away

You've followed me through my past
So can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

Finally the arms of sleep embrace me

Alone
Holding me
Keep away
And breath the dust

Bring me to my knees
Upon this tide of fire I'll give in
Let the current take me out
To become one with the undertow

Ripped from my grasp
The star that blessed the sky
Dragged into darkness.

.
.
Hidden track :

I'll be watching you
Until I look faint
Out of the light
Out of harms way

I can't hear you breathing but I can feel the warmth
If you carry on sleeping, you won't dream at all

Keep the door closed, I should never of forced your hand
Stay inside and remain as lonely as I am

And if you can't speak
Just give me a sign
And if you can't move
I can read your eyes

I can't hear you breathing but I can feel the warmth
If you carry on sleeping, you won't dream at all

Keep the door closed, I should never of forced your hand
Stay inside and remain as lonely as I am

I can't find you.
