Killing the World Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level LightListener
1. Killing the World (5:22)
Why must we die, you can’t deny, the right to survive
Why are you killing the world

Inhabitants of this dying world
This earth we call our home
Man is turning everything
Into fire, burning stone

Lust for power, goes round and round
They won’t stop until we hit the ground
Imminent danger, they refuse to see
Destroying the land, polluting the seas

Killing the world
Open up your eyes and see
Killing the world
Destroying all that lives and breathes

Toxic waste and acid rain
Pollution fills the skies
They knew that it would have to end
They knew it was a lie

Lust for power, goes round and round
They won’t stop until we hit the ground
Imminent danger, they refuse to see
Destroying the land, polluting the seas

What is the solution, to this mad mad world
Who’s gonna stop them, they don’t even care
About you or me, about land or sea
We’re heading for destruction, the thought is killing me
Multinational corporations planning to deceive
Nature’s balance disrupted now, it’s plain for all to see

Their lust for power, goes round and round
They won’t stop until we hit the ground
Imminent danger, they refuse to see
Destroying the world, polluting the seas

Killing the world
Open up your eyes and see
Killing the world
Destroying all that lives and breathes

Killing the world, Killing the world
Killing the world, Killing the world
Killing the world, Killing the world
They’re all killing the world
2. Sanctuary (5:24)
In the dead of night, I slipped away
I left my home, my own country
For political views, they persecuted me
Freedom for all, democracy

To set my people free
Got to find a way
From the grip of tyranny
Got to get away

Give to me, sanctuary
Give to me, sanctuary

As dusk casts a shadow, my fate had dawned
In this holy shrine, I pray to the Lord
Within these walls, to fulfill my plight
For what I believe, I must fight the good fight

To set my people free
Got to find a way
From the grip of tyranny
Got to get away

Give to me, sanctuary
Give to me, sanctuary

Prisoners of conscience, see the country’s shame
Faceless politicians, playing power games
Out of light comes darkness, out of pleasure comes pain
We must fight against oppression, time and time again

The sands of time are running low
This holy sanctuary, my home no more
Now I’ll die, your soul bleeds to death
Now I await, my passing breath

To set my people free
Got to find a way
From the grip of tyranny
Got to get away

Give to me, sanctuary
Give to me, sanctuary
Give to me, sanctuary
Give to me, sanctuary
3. Living on the Edge (5:03)
Motiveless killer out of control
Dagger poised to take your soul
Your days are numbered, you don’t stand a chance
A stab to the heart, you’re in permanent trance

Adrenaline high, prepare to die
Soon to draw your last breath
Your time has come, there’s nowhere to run
Fear will last forever

Living on the edge
Living on the edge

Ultimate sinner hours remain
A silence looms, it’s the end of the game
You fall to your death in a frenzied attack
Shot to ribbons, burning black

Twisted and torn, since the day you were born
The pain, the sorrow, the sadness
For those who died, it burns inside
It will last forever

Living on the edge
Living on the edge

You gambled your way through life in a feverish desperation
Your own demise was just a matter of time
Trapped in mind, no fear of dying
If you had lived, you’d have crucified us all

Into the fire, eternal flame
Burn in hell, again and again
Shrouded in darkness, you pray for light
Your soul a wait’s the second sight

Twisted and torn, since the day you were born
The pain, the sorrow, the sadness
For those who died, it burns inside
It will last forever

Living on the edge
Living on the edge

Living on the edge
Living on the edge
Living on the edge

instrumental
5. Laws of Retaliation (10:15)
A dormant force emerging
The power that it holds is rising
A mass of energy is now accumulating
Born again, a new chapter has begun

Fight, only the strong survive
Strike, before it’s too late

Fight for the right to survive
You must never say die
Pursue your aims
Chase them while you can

Laws of retaliation, now in command
Take your second strike
Take it while you can
Laws of retaliation, now in command

All those hungry ears, to feed
From obscurity, now destined to succeed
Second rays of light are growing stronger
All expectations have now been surpassed

Fight, do what you need to survive
Strike, before it’s too late

Fight for the right to survive
You must never say die
Pursue your aims
Chase them while you can

Laws of retaliation, now in command
Take your second strike
Take it while you can
Laws of retaliation are now at your command

Those wasted years have not deterred us
Rejuvenated, forget the past
At the point of no return
That same old dream now reality
Reality

Now we return to our own domain
All our hopes remain the same
Stand and fight, stand and fight
Believe in yourself until the end
Until the end

Like a lightning war, we’ve been through it all
This time we shall stand, we shall not fall
Soaring on a vision, higher and higher
With heart and soul, it burns like fire

On what does the future hold
Only time will tell
On what does the future hold
Only time will tell
Fight!

With a burning passion surging through our veins
To win not to lose, it’s the aim of the game
The right to succeed you can’t deny
With adrenaline pounding, a natural high

On what does the future hold
Only time will tell
On what does the future hold
Only time will tell

Now it seems to me that the powers that be
Were locked in a deadly game
Mistakes were made and lessons were learned
But no one bared the blame
Now we laugh at those who doubt us
Now our dream is reality
It personifies our determination
It’s plain for all to see

A dormant force, emerging
The power that it holds is rising
A mass of energy is now accumulating
Born again, a new chapter has begun

Fight, do what you need to survive
Strike, before it’s too late

Fight for the right to survive
You must never say die
Pursue your aims
Chase them while you can

Laws of retaliation, now in command
Take your second strike
Take it while you can
Laws of Talion, now in command

Fight
Fight
Fight
Fight
Fight
6. Screamin' for Mercy (4:56)
A scream breaks the still of the night
The time has now come
No time for talk or for change
The damage is done
Try as they might to deceive
The knew it would fail
The ones that we trusted
They lied to us all

Screamin’ for mercy, screamin’ for mercy, screamin’
Screamin’ for mercy, screamin’ for mercy, screamin’

Rulers of nations
See the world’s in decline
Time for the leveler, the reaper
Who now will preside
It isn’t for me or for you
The ones to decide
What man has the right to dictate
The fate of mankind

Screamin’ for mercy, screamin’ for mercy, screamin’
Screamin’ for mercy, screamin’ for mercy, screamin’

Death, persecution, unholy retribution
We hide from the future, we search to the past
For some kind of answer
To the scene that is cast

This unstoppable force
This relentless remorse
What is the solution
To this mad mad world
Total autonomy
Is the way for me

Why must it be
How long before we see
The futility of it all
The hammer will fall
Screamin’

Darkness descends
No more shall the sun ever shine
Intense searing heat
Winds strip the earth of it’s life
Now we’re all gone
It’s time for you to arrive
To make a brave new world
A divine afterlife

Screamin’ for mercy, screamin’ for mercy, screamin’
Screamin’ for mercy, screamin’ for mercy, screamin’
Screamin’
7. Premonition (2:23)
When I try to sleep at night
Premonitions haunt my sight
Visions flash before my eyes
Swear to God I tell no lies
People say that I’m insane
Premonitions on my brain
Illusions, visions that ain’t there
Prisoner in my own nightmare

Premonition, premonition
Pass before my eyes
Premonition, premonition
Swear to God I tell no lies

Fear of dying, I’m so afraid
I wake up screamin’ in the night
Endless darkness, strange cries
Feel my body slowly die
So caught up in doubt, confusion
Bad dreams, strange illusions
Slowly going around the bend
I can see my life’s end

Premonition, premonition
Pass before my eyes
Premonition, premonition
Swear to God I tell no lies

Unseen hand lifts the veil
To the things that are to be
As no into the future
Man is allowed to see

When I try to sleep at night
Premonitions haunt my sight
Visions flash before my eyes
Swear to God I tell no lies
People say that I’m insane
Premonitions on my brain
Illusions, visions that ain’t there
Prisoner in my own nightmare

Premonition, premonition
Pass before my eyes
Premonition, premonition
Swear to God I tell no lies
