The Formation of Damnation Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Mefisto
1. For the Glory of (1:12)
Instrumental
2. More Than Meets the Eye (4:31)
Life in a world untold question the unknown
This prison captures me my cell is all I know
I thought I knew it all stuborn in my ways
My sentence has begun my futures what I waste

Next chapter of my life is filled with violent scenes
I stay awake at night hiding from my dreams
the voices haunting me driving me insane
Can't seem to get away there calling out my name
I feel that I am slipping,are they out to get me
My life is upside down,more than meets the eye

For now I am in control choosing my own fate
And now I sleep at night because I'm not affraid
My demons haunting me I chased them all away
I've conquered all my fears my destiny awaits
I'm no longer slipping,I'm not slipping away
No one is out to get me,no one will get in my way
No longer upside down,I've turned my life around
More than meets the eye
3. The Evil Has Landed (4:44)
The sky began to fall ripping opening a path up to heaven
Time slowed to a crawl early morning September eleventh
Steel crumbling frames the scales of justice are decimated
Hate ignites the flames New York city incinerated
See the flames on the river could this be judgement day
Time to stand and deliver when evil flies our way...our way

Towers got hit a steel bird with wings of destruction
As the building split a skyline has been deconstucted
So many people killed two thousand nine hundred and seventy four
Innocent blood spilled extremist plotting a holy war
see the flames on the river terrorism sealed our fate
Praying hands of a killer reciting a sermon of hate
Will you please reconsider if this is our judgement day
Time to stand and deliver when evil flies our way...flies our way

We will pick up the pieces we never cast the first stone
Through all the bereavement we will rebuild our home

the sky began to fall ripping opening a path up to heaven
Time slowed to a crawl early morning September eleventh
See the flames on the river terrorism sealed our fate
Praying hands of a killer reciting a sermon of hate
Will you please reconsider if this is our judgement day
Time to stand and deliver when evil flies our way...flies our way
4. Formation of Damnation (5:09)
False leader crowned a world of mass destruction
Can't wash the lies away death messiah to whom people pray
Election day spitting bullshit to the enslaved
Make them believe compromised insanity
The time is now,rise up from destitution
We won't lay down,resist the persecution

Inspired hate controlled by endless faith
Sins washed away the bloddy shores of humanity
Unholy war,mankind is blind and bleeding
Indoctrinate,shatter all of the peoples faith
The time is now,rise up from destitution
We won't lay down,resist persecution
The time is now,rise up from destitution
We won't lay down,resist the persecution

I will fight relentlessly,I stand tall defiantly
I see what you cannot see,I invoke the beast in me
I fear not the agony,I breathe hope inside of thee
I will kill the enemy,I fulfill my destiny

A swarm of death engulfs the sky forever
Blots out the sun the desecration of salvation
The end is near elected false messiah
Plan put in gear the formation of damnation
The time is now,rise up from destitution
We won't lay down,resist the persecution
The time is now,rise up from destitution
We won't lay down,resist the persecution
Eyes,see,hands bleed
Set,free,the formation of damnation
Eyes see,hands bleed
Set,free,the formation of damnation
5. Dangers of the Faithless (5:48)
Predicting War, Predicting life, Predicting when disaster strikes
Living life, living Death, Living on borrowed time
End of time, End of days, End of all the things you save
See the future, See the past, what does it have in store...
Through the years, through the eyes and the lies
What he sees has become no surprise
Through the years and the tears and the lies
Condemned to hell, Condemned to fate, Condemned to time

Sacrament, Sacrilege, altar to a sacrifice
Smell the blood, Smell the death, smell the stench of demons breath
Fallen hero, fallen God, fallen victims that we've become
Through the years, through the eyes and the lies
What he sees has become no surprise
Through the years and the tears and the lies
Condemned to hell, Condemned to fate, Condemned to time

When you step into the circle prepare yourself as we choose your fate
As your bleeding at the altar of your sins with blood you'll pay

Predicting War, Predicting life, Predicting when disaster strikes
Living life, living Death, Living on borrowed time
End of time, End of days, End of all the things you save
See the future, See the past, what does it have in store...
Through the years, through the eyes and the lies
What he sees has become no surprise
Through the years and the tears and the lies
Condemned to hell, Condemned to fate, Condemned to time
6. The Persecuted Won't Forget (5:49)
The noose around my neck cinched in tight unmercifully
The tighter that it gets enables only my eyes to see
Truth through all the dust, twisted lies, which you decree
System unjust, you will never bend my knees

The broken and the blessed both sides try to preach to me
Social unrest, who labeled me the enemy
In pieces shall we rest, for those who choose not to believe
So put me to the test, who wrote those pages of history?
Subject to another threat, living without regrets
Pay the price with my death, the persecuted won't forget

I cannot breath, you watch the pain suffocating me, lie lies
I cannot breath, you watch me bleed suffocating me
Can't break away my heart still beats unsevered
My soul be saved amen condemned forever
I've been awakened can't be mistaken
The lessons beseech you break free from the noose

The noose around my neck cinched in tight relentlessly
The tighter that it gets, my heart still beats but I can't breath
In pieces shall we rest, for those who chose not to believe
Liberty in death, after all is said you won't break me
Subject to another threat, living without regrets
Pay the price with my death, the persecuted won't forget
7. Henchman Ride (4:01)
One life is the way they live not far from a world of sin
Ride hard is the reason to live life with a fist of doom
No rest,no time no fear in the way they die
Last dance in the dead of night a steel horse is what the henchmen ride
American bliss american pride in a world that they live and die
Respect for the members in thier club when the henchmen ride
Forward,shifting gears in the wind the henchmen ride
Engines roar with the energy more miles and the wind and speed
going fast is a way of life living life when the henchmen ride

Freedom,rider henchmen,lifer
Their brotherhood is blood that's all they really need
Never asking for forgiveness thier only love is life
Cause life is their machine riding hard is the future that they see
Freedom,rider henchmen,lifer

Forward,shifting gears in the wind the henchmen ride
American bliss American pride in a world where the henchmen ride
Going fast is a way of life no fear in the way they die
Forward,shifting gears in the wind the henchmen ride
8. Killing Season (4:53)
Asking for salvation at the stations of the cross, eternal is my pledge if eternal is thy loss
Back in the days of yore my country summoned me, enlisted willingly in defense of liberty
Eroding all alone like the mist upon the moss, eternal is my pledge an eternal holocaust
They summoned me, honorably, defend the cause, never repent, away I went, to defend the cause
When I was sent away they made a soldier from a boy
Victory will be achieved lethal weapons to destroy

Killing season, has begun with blood in my eyes the truth blames the lies
Machine gun, no place to run killing season
I was taught the art of war, kill
Exploding all alone like the blood upon the moss,
Eternal is my pledge if eternal is thy loss
They summoned me, honorably, defend the cause, never repent,
Away I went, to defend the cause
When I was sent away they made a soldier from a boy
Victory will be achieved lethal weapons to destroy

Killing season, has begun with blood in my eyes the truth blames the lies
Machine gun, no place to run killing season
Chosen one, with death on my hands, killing season
Art of war, kill on command, killing season
Killing season, killing season
Killing season, killing season
9. Afterlife (4:14)
When my old man he said to me you're growing fast boy there's so much to see
You take a wife, new born, a family, he said you'd see when it comes time
To be a man to do what's right
You'll always find a way to make your way through life
When my old man he said to me treat mankind with dignity
Start with no one finding someone that you need
Wonder where we go, is there really an afterlife
Never growing old, going home will free his spirit

When my old man he said to me the world moves fast boy with no guarantees
Trust in no one till you find someone you believe
Then my father past away from this world to a grave
Mother earth, sands of time a better place, the afterlife
Wonder where we go, is there really an afterlife
Never growing old, going home will free his spirit
Never ending love, is there hope in the afterlife
Reach into my soul, I'll see my dad in the afterlife

When my old man was alive he always would teach
When my old man was alive he always believed in me
He helps shape his son, the man that I've become

Then my old man said to me embrace the past
Listen son carry on our legacy
Then my father passed away from this world to a grave
Mother earth, sands of time a better place, the afterlife
Wonder where we go, is there really an afterlife
Never growing old, going home will free his spirit
Never ending love, is there hope in the afterlife
Reach into my soul, I'll see my dad in the afterlife
10. F.E.A.R. (4:47)
The psycho logic of the civilized, controlling thoughts within their eyes
Contamination of the chemical, the hidden force within the soul
Fear alive will come alive fear will go, through the darkness and the woes
There will be a light deep below, the sub-conscience only knows fear

The politician and their freedom fight, when all is wrong there is no right
The key of lies opening the door, to sacrifices in the holy war
The promise of eternal afterlife, manipulation internal strife
Forever-after has a fatal flaw, religious leaders above the law
Fear will come alive fear will go, through the darkness and the woes
There will be a light deep below, the sub-conscience only knows
Fear, fear, shattering the atmosphere fear, fear, travesty is here
Here, here, covering the path that's clear
Fear is only what you feel... false evidence appearing real

Black emotions grow on trees of scorn, seeds are planted from the day we're born
Plucked from darkness rushing to the light, instinct pulling you to fight or flight
Paralyzed, vilified, voices within your soul are calling from deep inside
Terrorized, victimized, false prophets - nothing more than thoughts within your mind

The penetration of a deep abyss, along a passage to nothingness
Within the corners of the hidden eye, is where the sources of evil lie
So if you suffer with no end in sight, the veil of fear is an endless night
Through confrontation it will be gone, the night is dark just before the dawn
Fear will come alive fear will go, through the darkness and the woes
There will be a light deep below, the sub-conscience only knows
Fear, fear, shattering the atmosphere fear, fear, travesty is here
Here, here, covering the path that's clear
Fear is only what you feel... false evidence appearing real
11. Leave Me Forever (4:28)
Promises you never meant to keep what I thought we had was love
Used to say I was the only one how could I be so wrong
When you chose me to be the one our life together has not begun
Manipulation, presume control the lights are broken inside my soul

Overcome by the emptiness delusions of true love
Cast into a very dark abyss crest fallen and undone
When you chose me to be the one you broke my spirit we can't go on
Insinuation it takes it's toll the lights are broken inside my soul
Now I have my reason to turn my back on you
Now I don't believe in you love lies bleeding through

Everything that meant so much to me I left it all for love
I gave you all that I had to give but it wasn't good enough
I thought I loved you but it's too late you said you love me but now I hate
Dead and buried let's fill the hole the lights are broken inside my soul
Now I have my reason to turn my back on you
Now I don't believe in you love lies bleeding through

I can't get away I hope you suffer I won't let love ever drive me insane
Unleash the pain laugh as you suffer you turned our love into my ugly shame
Sick of your ways sick of the future I take my life back to live it my way
Just walk away leave me forever you can't erase all the damage you've done
