Underworld Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Overture (2:13)
Instrumental
2. Nevermore (5:28)
From the skies,
Across the sea of lies,
To the dungeons of the damned
Scourching winds blazing thunderclouds raging,
Here I make my stand

The viper's venomous bite has brought on the night
Swept away,
Like a bird of prey
Now there's hell to pay

From darkness into night
Nothing matters anymore
My strings ring hollow
Breeding nevermore

Nevermore
Can't let go
Your silences tells me all I need to know
Nevermore
Strike a chord, the walls of silence fall
Nevermore

Kings of death calling,
Frigid death falling in the cyptic den
Curse the dark with a longing heart and song
You will rise again

On tragic wings I take flight
Bring on the night
Eyes of stone riping flesh from bone
Into depths unknown

From darkness into night
Nothing matters anymore
My strings ring hollow
Breeding nevermore

Nevermore
Can't let go
Your silences tells me all I need to know
Nevermore
Strike a chord, the walls of silence fall
Nevermore

Lost in shadows of what may have been
Bloodless spirits wept in fear
The void of anguish slowly pulls me in
"Abandon hope all who enter here"

Nevermore
Can't let go
Your silences tells me all I need to know
Nevermore
Strike a chord, the walls of silence fall
Nevermore
Nevermore
Nevermore
3. Underworld (5:48)
Treacherous words rise from the mist
From envious eyes and poisonous cold, pale lips.
Gluttons of pleasure - Gluttons of pain
Vengeance by Sevens - My Sweet, cursed
Children of Cain.
Thrashing and clashing with specters,
Hiding from the light - demons of death
Chaos and Anguish Perfector
Stealing their last dying breath

Driven by greed, slave to addiction
A massive decay of a most foul contradiction.
Spirits of lust piercing the air
Writhing with sins of the flesh etched deep
In their stare.

Descend the abyss ever faster
Hidden from light - demons of death
Cursing the Black-Winged Master.
With their last dying breath

Soar through the flame
I call your name
Wrath and might get me though this night
Can I make it right? Or will you remain?

I've finally realized, that longer after laughter dies,
I can't undo the things I've done - oh, the things
I've done...
When will my dark skies disappear - I long to
See the sun.

Soar through the flame
I call your name
Wrath and might - get me though this night
Can I make it right? Or will you remain... in Hell?
4. Without You (5:51)
Flying into the storm
Hanging on a broken wing
Onto every life
A little rain must fall

Oh, the words I sing
It's a greater thing
To have loved and lost
Than to never, ever
Loved at all

I've come undone
Any fool can see
What's become of me

Sometimes I feel
Feels like there's nothing there
Just an empty stare
Sometimes I feel
Feels like with each passing day
Life just slips away
Without you

The days slowly disappear
Time to face my fears
What will be will be
I can't escape
I can't escape my...
My destiny

Sometimes I feel
Feels like there's nothing there
Just an empty stare
Sometimes I feel
Feels like with each passing day
Life just slips away
Without you
5. Kiss of Fire (5:09)
Realms of desolation - where Phantoms
Frighten Beasts
Through fiery rain, the screams, the pain, eternal,
Never cease.

Hell's Abomination - boundless chains of woe
With mighty stride, the Horsemen ride in a Sable
Blackened glow.

Into night - Into fury
Horse of Crimson she rides
Blinding light - Kiss of Fire
From the depths, arise...

Wastelands of confusion - where nothing's
As it seems
Beneath the skies, the daylight dies - Destroyer
Of all dreams.

Bringer of Misfortune - Monarch's great Abyss
And by His side - the Queen of Lies - unleashes
Fruy's Kiss.

Into the night - Into fury
Horse of Crimson she rides
Blinding light - Kiss of Fire
From the depths, arise...

Feels like the sky is falling
My demons calling my name - from the
Other side
I'm being buried - feels like I'm buried alive.

Bring down the hammer with furious anger
It's me against the world
Bring down my fists with flaming malice
It's me against the world

Into the night - Into fury
Horse of Crimson she rides
Blinding light - Kiss of Fire
From the depths, arise...
6. Charon (6:06)
Through me you pass - just take my hand
The ferryman whispers my name
The course has been set - lord of the damned
To the banks, over rivers of pain.

We rise and fall - with the tide
On through the gates, where shadows await
See the glimmer of gold in his eye.

'The bridges have been burned - never to
Return...'

Sail away - on the winds of Charon
Take me to the distant shore
Lead the way - on the winds of Charon
By the gods, I can't ignore
The Sight of his face - shrouded in death's
Cold embrace

Through me you pass - to the lacrymose plains
Though my passage comes with a price
A sky without stars is all that remains
To the shores made of fire and ice.

We rise and fall - with the tide
Just say the word - cause there's no return
To the coast where the true power lies.

'The bridges have been burned - never to
Return...'

Sail away - on the winds of Charon
Take me to the distant shore;
Lead the way - on the winds of Charon
By the gods, I can't ignore
The sight of his face - shrouded in death's
Cold embrace

Sail away - on the winds of Charon
Take me to the distant shore;
Lead the way - on the winds of Charon
By the gods, I can't ignore
The sight of his face - shrouded in death's
Cold embrace
7. Hell and Back (9:23)
I have led the lamb into the slaughter
Ice flowed through my veins
I was my own worst enemy, still hellish memories remain.

I have shown the serpent into the garden
And wore the Mask of Cain,
Take a look in these eyes, where the past evil lies - and
Feel my pain.

Oh - The Hell Hounds drawning near
...And my conscience isn't clear

I'm the one who whispered the words the words to judas,
I'm the Hangman's noose.
Through I try to repent, in a valiant attempt - it's no use.

I'm the Judge, the Jury, the Executioner
Oh, the things I've seen
With an eye for an eye, kill the man, kill the past, kill the dream.

Oh - The Hell Hounds drawning near
...And my conscience isn't clear

I've been to Hell and back...
And I can't justify believing the lie. I slowly fade to black
Learning to Live and Die - I'm Learning to Fly.

Under the moonlit glow - I just can't let it go
Words spoke in vain, now fall like a silent tear.
As shades dance by candlelight - in the dead of the night
And all of the things I yearn slowly disappear
And now there's nothing here...

Riding the storm, heading for a Fall
I curse you all - be Damned.
Through the haze, the sword that cuts both ways
A line is drawn in the sand.

Ironbound - a will as cold as steel.
To Conquer all and Divide
Striking with an iron fist of will
I will not be denied.

On and on and on... No quarter asked, no quarter given.
On and on and on... Never forgotten or forgiven.

Thunders rise from the Terror's eyes
Scorched by a heart drenched in black.
No return, I will watch it burn
Now there's no turning back.

On and on and on... No quarter asked, no quarter given.
On and on and on... Never forgotten or forgiven.

I've been to Hell and back...
And I can't justify believing the lie. I slowly fade to black
Learning to Live and Die - I'm Learning to Fly.
8. In My Darkest Hour (4:22)
I've been betrayed
By the Angel of Death
And the Serpent who stole her last breath.

Feeding the flame
Though I pray for the beast,
I prepare for the worst, just the same.

Dominator - Subjugator
Locked in an Apocalypse gaze
Desecrator - Devastator
Set my world ablaze

In my Darkest Hour - with "thy kingdom's power"
Hear my song and hear my plea
Put the pieces back together - nothing lasts
Forever
My darkest hour - let it be...

Grant my request
Darksome Master of Pain
Incarnation of all that's profane.

Without a prayer
Under six black wing's flutter
And six mouths of screaming despair.

Born a Liar - Falsifier
Trapped in this damned infernal maze
Crucifier - born of Fire
Set my world ablaze

In my Darkest Hour - with "thy kingdom's power"
Hear my song and hear my plea
Put the pieces back together - nothing lasts
Forever.
My darkest hour - let it be...

In my Darkest Hour - with "thy kingdom's power"
Hear my song and hear my plea
Put the pieces back together - nothing lasts
Forever.
My darkest hour - let it be...
9. Run with the Devil (5:38)
I'm on the run. nowhere to turn, they're on my heels
Lost in the maze, where do I go?
Am I insane, it's just a game of life and death
Stay the course and ride the flow.

I cross the bridge, I'm at the gates
I'm out of breath, chasing the clock, I'm out of time.
I hear the dogs, I feel the claws, rake down my back
There's no escape, no peace of mind.

Oh - Just hold ond
Oh - Just hold ond
I'm on my way to you...

Run with the Devil - Run for you life
The truth of the moment, cuts like a knife
Chasing a shadow - still chasing a dream.
When it's 'do or die', you know there's no in
Between...

I see the fiends, they're on the move, they strike
With fear
Give them the slip, I duck the blade
I knuckle-down, I roll the dice, I dance with death
Lost in the realm of light and shade

My path is weak, it falls away, I feel the heat
The fires of Hell beneath me arise.
Caught in a trap, there's no way out, walls closing in
Is this the hour of my demise?

Oh - Just hold on
Oh - Just hold on
I'm on my way to you...

Run with the Devil - Run for you life
The truth of the moment, cuts like a knife
Chasing a shadow - still chasing a dream.
When it's 'do or die', you know there's no in
Between...

I've searched the depths of Hell to find the key
I've wasted time - now time has wasted me...

Run with the Devil - Run for you life
The truth of the moment, cuts like a knife
Chasing a shadow - still chasing a dream.
When it's 'do or die', you know there's no in
Between...
10. Swansong (7:29)
I stand alone, as my world comes crashing down,
Some things are never meant to be.
Accept your fate, 'cause there's no second time-
Around.
"It's not the stars or sky, that shapes our destiny".

Just a fateful glance -
Just a fleeting chance in the wind -
Gone forevermore...

Hear my song - Carry on.
Through the lost and lonely air.
Still I sing - Can it bring
All the things that I desire? ...with you - I wouldn't
Change a thing
Just for you, I'd do most anything, but now
You're gone
And my swan song echoes on...

I walk alone, like a stranger in this town.
Is it best to fail, or never try at all?
I face the shadows, as the sun is sinking down.
"Some rise by sin - and some, by virtue, fall..."

Just a fateful glance -
Just a fleeting chance in the wind -
Gone forevermore...

Hear my song - Carry on.
Through the lost and lonely air.
Still I sing - Can it bring
All the things that I desire? ...with you - I wouldn't
Change a thing
Just for you, I'd do most anything, but now
You're gone
And my swan song echoes on...

Goddess of shadowy play,
Whose boundless power, divides the night from the day
Plains of woe, eclipsed from all sight,
And wrapt forever in the darkest depths of the night.

Hear my song - Carry on.
Through the lost and lonely air.
Still I sing - Can it bring
All the things that I desire? ...with you - I wouldn't
Change a thing
Just for you, I'd do most anything, but now
You're gone
And my swan song echoes on...
11. Legend (6:29)
Steal away through the land of the dead -
Where Angels fear to tread
Over mountains, the sky, and the sea.

Feel the light bleeding from a new moon -
Escape from the hands of doom
I never thought I could change what would be.

Break the chains of fear
I won't shed another tear

The Rise and Fall
Altough I fight like hell, there's just no certainty.
My battlefield lay scarred with empty victories.
Running from the past, from a lifetime of lies.
But the legend never dies...

Here comes the horror, here comes the pain -
Flying too close the flame
Into darkness, now falling from grace.
From the Nine Realms of Woe, I arise. -
Lines of tragedy carved deep on my face.

Break the chains of fear
Now it all seems crystal clear...

The Rise and Fall
Altough I fight like hell, there's just no certainty.
My battlefield lay scarred with empty victories.
Running from the past, from a lifetime of lies.
But the legend never dies...

The Rise and Fall
Altough I fight like hell, there's just no certainty.
My battlefield lay scarred with empty victories.
Running from the past, from a lifetime of lies.
But the legend never dies...

The legend never dies...
