Low Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Mefisto
1. Low (3:33)
Fuel the fire for war; it's man against mankind
Bruises that they bear been beaten down with time

Innocent people suffer the loss
Your brokin' hope so close to the cross
Sometimes you just don't know

How low... how low you can go.?.
So low it's sickening
Low... Low... Show some mercy...

Hey, you piece of shit just leave the kids alone
Why can't you bear the things that we endure?

Innocent people suffer the loss
Lost hope with faith to the cross
Sometimes you just don't know

How low... how low you can go.?.
Show some sympathy
Low... Low... Show some mercy.!.

I don't like you for your warped demented ways
I hope they lock you down, so you never get away

Low... Low... Show some sympathy
Low... Low... Show some mercy...
2. Legions (In Hiding) (4:17)
Domestically violent with razor blade smiles
Infested with anger a well hidden crime
Teaching those lessons so cruel

Ah, the torment spreads
War inside my head
Please just set me free
You call this... a family.?.

Battered, abusive - there's no wrong or right
When you're enslaved in your room
Hiding from demons in urban daylight
Knowing that they'll be here soon

So many bruises and scars left for life
When physical evidence fades
Silently screaming just to be loved
Their innocence taken away

On no, the torment spreads
War inside my head
Please just set me free
You call this... a family.?.

Virtues are shattered by parents they trust
When all love they give is misued
The next generation the damaged will learn
To keep spinning wheels of abuse

On no, the torment spreads
War inside my head
Please just set me free
You call this... a family.?.
3. Hail Mary (3:32)
I am alive, I feel dirt in my eyes
There's no escape when redemption is lost
I'm not a saint - there's no use to looking
No sins to deny, just my will to go on

Armas of darkness embrace me in madness
In my life it's mandatory
So hard to resist you, I still can't forgive you
For sins that you cannot wash away

Hail Mary full of grace... throw some light upon this race
Intertwining final breath now... in the hour of death

Bound by the lies of constant denial
Pay for my sins that I bear for a child
I'm not a saint - there's no use denying
Falling from grace is my reason to go on

Hail Mary full of grace... throw some light upon this race
Intertwining final breath now... in the hour of death
4. Trail of Tears (6:06)
See the sun as the day is done
Life is of the broken ones
Some will stray as time will come
All their lives, the live it well
Red man proud and giving hell
Some stand and shining tall

Can you hear them call?

See the sun as it's setting still
Tears fall from a warrior
Damn those who I feel
Set a trail to the promised land
Mother and child holding hand in hand
Through the snow or through the sands

All across the land

Full moon's rising from the sky
A warrior's riding, ride with the wind
So far away the spirits will guide you
No more sorrow - don't look back
Your freedom will follow flying so free

Can't you see.?. On the trail of tears
5. Shades of War (4:44)
Burial of a human being; a man before a boy
Born to fight in another man's world
Not a world where there's a war
Born religiously - truth is what they see
Death won't come form peace; who fuels this war?

Sacred ground of life, burnt remains of the dead
Bodies lay to rest - spirits of the earth

Rancid man, burned alive
Too blind to see what's wrong or right
Locked inside this cage
So many times blood has poured
Walk with shadows
Hear the shades of war... forever more

Brought into this world of bitter pain
Are we safe... or just insane!?

Rancid man, burned alive
Too blind to see what's wrong or right
Darkness veils their way
So many times blood has poured
Walk with shadows
Hear the shades of war... forever more
6. P.C. (2:50)
Damn the machine, the system's corrupted
Abusive power is everywhere
Our elected officals pass laws to help
But who's paying them off?
And in the end we, the people, pay
Such a heavy price just for being alive

And if this country was really free
We'd make paper from hemp and let the forest live
But corporate America and billion dollar industries
Have so much power, yet they stand to lose
Too much fucking money - there's nothing we can do, but.!.

Take back all that we've lost at any price that it costs
Our freedom was worth fighting for - resistance now or nevermore

And what about the CIA? What the fuck is their real job anyway?
Starting civil wars in Third World countries
Importing heroin from the far east
Talk about cocaine, neither kept away
From the youths of today and there's nothing we can do, but.!.

Take back all that we've lost at any price that it costs
Our freedom was worth fighting for - resistance now or nevermore
7. Dog Faced Gods (4:02)
Of dog faced gods through the Nile sands whisper
Of ancient times, mayfly names flickered and gone
The blood and honey dripping from their jaws
Through the Nile sands whisper ancient times, fade into the dawn

Of dog faced gods manifest in the night
The sacred rights handed down through tiems of old
Dark words of power, blood upon their tombs
Through incantations locusts fly, signaling doom

Confirm who I am
Confort all I can
Conceive sorcery
Corrodes disbelief!

Of dog faced gods, dead civilzation
Through priests of power invoking life of the ancient one
The blood and honey dripping from their jaws
Through the Nile sands whisper, travel through time to the land unkown

Confirm who I am
Confort all I can
Conceive sorcery
Corrodes disbelief!
8. All I Could Bleed (3:37)
I like to dominate, I create your fate
Many years gone by, I rule society
You cannot be me; I am the master

Can't you hear me breathing for you? Do not ignore
Reach out to me, put your knife through me
Watch me bleed for you.!. Yeah, right!

Try to retaliate, I release your hate
Why don't you bleed for me?
What do you need to prove?
I can see through you: you're not the master

Can't you hear me breathing for you? Do not ignore
Reach out to me, put your knife through me
Watch me bleed for you.!. Dying! Dying!
-- All I could bleed

Can't you understand?
Grab life by the hand
Where's democracy?
I gave all I could bleed

Fuck government policy; this land is of the free
Don't take away your two bit society dying for your greed
Now watch them bleed.!. Yeah... All I could bleed...

10. Chasing Fear (4:55)
Paralized and never coming back
Even when your eyes are open everything turns to black
Soon forgotten senses incubates the soul
Hiding from the light fantastic, waiting for the show

Contemplation, reality starts to fade
Creeping stare behind dead eyes as the minutes burn the day
Inactive wandering still can't get a grip
Can God hear you cry before you start to slip?

Chasing fear! Human mind unglued
Unaware that fear is chasing you

Endless waiting for nothing to appear
Even when your eyes are shut the visions are so clear
Harmonious dissidence, obscure reckoning
Did you hear that final note of silent suffering?

Chasing fear! Human mind unglues
Disappear, the sickness inside of you
Chasing fear! Nothing you can do
Unaware that fear is chasing you

Loss of function, withering of the will
Condemned to a state of nothing, moving in for the kill
Brain cells slowly boil with memories intertwined
Listening to that empty space - atrophy of the mind

Chasing fear! Human mind unglues
Disappear, the sickness inside of you
Chasing fear! Nothing you can do
Unaware that fear is chasing you
11. Ride (3:07)
Doesn't know what to do anymore; Jesus makes love to the spike
A trick for a fix and feeling so sick; just can't seem to get right
Once he was the king of his world, a world without any order
Sold it all without thinking twice just for a spoonful of water

Ride! Ride on through
Ride! Ride through you
Ride! Ride on through
Ride! Ride through you

Ceremonious ritual raising of the veins
Always early and feeling so late; waving goodbye to the rain

Ride! Ride on through
Ride! Ride through you
Ride! Ride on through
Ride! Ride through you

Slowly scratching away at the world; fearless when he is stoned
Obsessed by dreams of what could've been; trapped in his kingdom alone

Ride! Ride on through
Ride! Ride through you
Ride! Ride on through
Ride! Ride through you

-- Ride.!.
