Modus Vivendi Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Anubis
It's your face that I see
In the mist, in my dreams
I am moved into tears
Why are you calling me?

Anubis

When I listen, I hear
What I see is your fear
Take my hand, come with me
Tell me why can't you see...?

Oh, no...
You say don't you worry
but I know what it means
There in my dreams

Anubis

Imperfect harmony
This timeless symphony
As power surges through me
I raise my head and scream

Don't tell me you're sorry
and I know what it means
It's really no dream

Anubis
2. No Mercy
I came to seek among mortal
men for souls like you
And I have seen just what it means
In pain, in agony, a broken heart is true
and even then you cannot see

No, not too long ago
I found you in my dreams
I came your way to help you see
Find perfect harmony
Find balance, peace of mind
But then you threw away the key

Said take this wizardry
This magic of a kind
I have a statement for you

No mercy!
No! No!
No mercy!

Why lend a helping hand?
You know they snap and bite
And break your heart, well add that too
Strangers like demons bow down
and when they do
They'd love to have a piece of you
3. Afraid to Die
Don't you ever, no don't forget
You know I mean it
The subtle fear we feel
The sudden rift inside
In the remnants of this broken mind
I lie here still afraid to die

Once you promised
and I will hold you to it
Do you remember
how I savoured every word?
You stand beside me
but I fear you cannot face me
Time's no longer on my side

Time runs out
Without you by my side
There's naught to say
I cannot turn this tide
And now I know
We're just putting on a show here
It's no use now
I'm still afraid to die

I am telling you
Oh yes, I am telling you
There comes a time
when we must face what we've become
In silent mutiny
you stonewall everything, I mean
What's left unsaid has hurt me
Oh, beyond compare

So when I say to you
I'll make you pay, it's true
You'd better listen
these may be my final words
Make no mistake my friend
I'll hold you 'til the bitter end
Oh, face the music
Get a grip now, say farewell
4. Clearly Insane
Come it is time
the sun will rise, and fall
and in the night we hide
The shadows call
Don't turn away
Don't speak a word
And you'll be safe with me
And through the night we glide
Look! There's another light
Come see what we can be

Night after night
we shun day, the sun
Each generation will come
My race to run
Degeneration of the mind
And in the flesh we share
Whatever we may find

Worship your masters
Dance in the flames
Live through this nightmare
Playing their game
Follow the blind man
Time and again
Take to this madness

Clearly insane
Take to this madness
Surrender your soul
I say the time has come
for all of you
5. Cyberdome
All alone in the cyberdome
Try to make it if you can
Dropped the bomb and headed straight for home
So you had no masterplan

Roll the bones and then you ask her home
Try to shake her if you can
Walk her home but the magic's gone
There's your brilliant masterplan

To the ones we left behind
I can only say I'm sorry

Was it worth it all?
I don't know
Oh, I don't know
Do we care at all?
I don't know
Oh, I don't know

Still alone in this cyberdome
Try to move me if you can
Head for home but your friend's long gone
So there was no backup plan
6. Take on the World
Come join the circuitry it's me
Yes I've left the old ways, roaming free
Let us reach out one more time
Raise our banners, hold 'em high

This is your one chance to be free
So shout it out! Yeah! Leave me be
For all we know all hell might freeze
It makes no difference don't you see
Just set us free...

We shake the ground
Break up the clouds
Take on the world
Let it roll
In a different time
We made the sign
Shook the world
Let it roll

Take your chances, spin the wheel
Too much pressure, here's the deal
For all we know all hell might freeze
It makes no difference don't you see
Just set us free...
7. Mother Shipton's Words
Come join the circuitry it's me
Yes I've left the old ways, roaming free
Let us reach out one more time
Raise our banners, hold 'em high

This is your one chance to be free
So shout it out! Yeah! Leave me be
For all we know all hell might freeze
It makes no difference don't you see
Just set us free...

We shake the ground
Break up the clouds
Take on the world
Let it roll
In a different time
We made the sign
Shook the world
Let it roll

Take your chances, spin the wheel
Too much pressure, here's the deal
For all we know all hell might freeze
It makes no difference don't you see
Just set us free...
8. Unwelcome Guest
Straight down, it's pitch black inside
A pulse, they're tracking me down
Look into the night
Where horror resides

This night, this blackness so tight
So close now, the MT's alight
I'm all out of flares
My battery's run dry

Sent on this mission for one
I'm lost and here all alone
There's no time to waste
Press on through this madness

Shutdown, a crackling weird sound
They come but somehow I'm stuck
Like someone once said
Oh, please God help me

Unwelcome guest
Die die, now die!
Unwelcome guest
Die now

They move in the shadows
But there's something else in here
You become the hunted
Reading's all wrong
Man is this wrong
Your eyes hurt
Your eyes hurt
9. Life in a Lonely Grave
In the wake of Armageddon
We survived but was it worth it all?
I've seen the light, clear and bright
but where am I now?

Earth is shaking, and you worry
Disbeliever steer well clear of me
I've seen the light, clear and bright
but there's darkness now

Is this life for the dying?
This is life for the deceased

If you ask me
I know this is life in a lonely grave
Life in a lonely grave
You know, I know
And we all bleed

Oh make an angel of me
Or let my soul cease to be
I'm not in play anymore...

Under the land of the free
Their minions, their slaves are we
Do as you will
Do as you please
Covert or plain to see
Such is the irony
There's evil and there's evil
Some smile, some bleed

If you ask me
I know this is life in a lonely grave
Life in a lonely grave
Life in a lonely grave
This is life in the shelters
This is life in agony
This is life for the hungry
This is life and we all bleed

This is life for the dying
This is life for the deceased
This is life for the holy
This is life in sanctity
10. When the Spirit Rules the World
In the darkness my mind goes on
Chasing memories I've lost
Lived my life now I pay the cost
in the spirit world

When she calls me I must be gone
Speak in tongues I don't know
So I ask you could I be wrong
Must be something I've done

When the spirit rules the world
and your prayers have all been heard
I'm still turning in my sleep
Ooh, what wrong have I done

Mystic hands surely rule my fate
and I wait for the day
Had I known, had I not been late
Oh but surely I'd strayed
