Enemy Unbound Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Vertigo
[Instrumental]
2. Erased
Now what ever your name is
Get ready for the big surprise
A world of lies, right before your eyes
The never ending climb into the red sky
There will be no future for us to see
Done in by the essence of they're greed

Open your mind and you will see
Start the reactor, you are the key
Open your mind and you will see

The lifetime of your memories

Now you got what you wanted
So give those people air
Ignite from this waking dream
Instilled in the infinite will to breathe
Here lies the truth you can't deny
Swallow the pill or
You will be lobotomized

Open your mind and you will see
Start the reactor, you are the key
Open your mind and you will see

The lifetime of your memories

You are not you
You are what they made you to be
Drained and erased of all memory

[Solo - Peter 3:05]

Open your mind and you will see
Start the reactor, you are the key

Open your mind and you will see
The lifetime of your memories

I'll erase your ass
3. Deepest Wound
Feel the pull from below
Twisting and blistered within
The unsaid or the back breaking weight
Carries us on into the onslaught
Of long failing dreams
The furthest from first light I've been
Is the will to suffer, to die for no other
The only path I care to tread

The one and only thing
Is in the constants of suffering

[Chorus:]
Onward, to meet our doom
This is our longest mile our deepest wound
Marching onward to face our doom
This is our longest mile
This is our deepest wound

[Solo - Patrick 1:23]
[Solo - Peter 1:29]

Now embrace this feeling of hope
Anchored deep in our lifelines of filth
So timeless and vibrant yet moving below
We hold on for dear life in motions so slow

The one and only thing
Is in the constants of suffering
Our endless agony
Relentless for all to see

[Chorus:]
Onward, to meet our doom
This is our longest mile our deepest wound
Marching onward to face our doom
This is our longest mile
This is our deepest wound

Through the thick of thieves
And our trust worn thin
Moving forward in the face of regression

[Solo - Patrick 3:13]
[Solo - Peter 3:26]
[Solo - Patrick 3:40]
[Solo - Peter 3:54]

Our endless agony relentless for all to see

[Chorus:]
Onward, meeting our doom
This is our longest mile our deepest wound
Marching onward facing our doom
This is our longest mile
This is our deepest wound
4. Maelstrom
We all bleed the same inferno
Devouring like a welcome burn
And a common rage while most break
We dive right down the long road
Of labor and hate

When we all speak
In the same distorted speech
The world will burn

[Solo - Peter 0:56]

[Chorus:]
Holocaust of fire
You are the maelstrom in flight
The rising flames that consume us whole
Calling out to us from below

Come down and join us in the glow
Born with a force unbreakable
Engulfed in warfare where the welfare keeps
Where I will live and die, maelstrom complete

When we all speak
In the same distorted speech
The world will burn

[Solo - Patrick 2:04]

[Chorus:]
Holocaust of fire
You are the maelstrom in flight
The rising flames that consume us whole
Calling out to us from below

[Chorus:]
Holocaust of fire
You are the maelstrom in flight
The rising flames that consume us whole
Calling out to us from below

[Solo - Peter 3:13]

Now we all speak
In the same distorted speech

[Solo - Tom 3:34]
[Solo - Patrick 3:47]

[Chorus:]
Holocaust of fire
You are the maelstrom in flight
The rising flames that consume us whole
Calling out to us from below

Calling out to us from below
Calling from below
5. Enemy Unbound (5:03)
This is the wreck from our hell bound
Depths, the damning blast of fear
A cataclysmic sea overflowing
With serpents and beasts
Oh the horrors that rain down
From perdition's mouth
Echo wages made, spineless displays
Weak and wicked in every way

[Pre Chorus:]
I hear the wretched song
Infesting every single mind
Through the flash of fame

Watch the unfit rise, watch them writhe

[Solo - Peter 1:19]

[Chorus:]
This is the rise, this is the fall
Of the cancer within
The defeated cast down
Enemy, the enemy unbound

This is our time, a harvest of power
The sew and reap, the collapse of pride
Where their ruin resides, all dignity denied

[Pre Chorus:]
I hear the wretched song
Infesting every single mind
Through the flash of fame

The corrupted fault, watch them fall

[Solo - Patrick 2:25]

[Chorus:]
This is the rise, this is the fall
Of the cancer within
The defeated cast down
Enemy unbound

[Chorus:]
This is the rise, this is the fall
Of the cancer within
The defeated cast them down
The enemy unbound

Watch them rise, watch them fall

[Solo - Peter 3:28]

[Solo - Patrick 4:06]

[Chorus:]
This is the rise, this is the fall
Of the cancer within
The defeated cast down
Enemy unbound

[Chorus:]
This is the rise, this is the fall
Of the cancer within
The defeated cast down
Enemy, the enemy unbound
6. Solace
[Instrumental]
7. The Bridge
[Solo - Peter 0:15]

I found the will to live
Leaving you behind
Against judgments
Severing these strings of time
From the affection, the rapture within
If this is truly the end, then so be it
This nauseous plague
Rains down from above
The better of my ambitions
Have crippled by poor decisions
Shattered or strong all foes will be faced
Each and every single one laid to waste

Choices lead to consequence

[Chorus:]
Choose your steel
Be the hero or play the fool
Face me on this burning bridge
Show me which side you...
Choose your steel
Be the hero or die the fool
Just face me on this burning bridge
And show me which side you choose

All of these wounds will be met
Skinned flesh to salt
The tragic unending of epics untold
Desperate answers we seek
Finalized by the damaging bleak
Skin scarred so black (black)
Cauterized by a life half lived
We are all misled, undecided, unsaid
Destined to mourn in regret

Choices led to consequence

[Chorus:]
Choose your steel
Be the hero or play the fool
Face me on this burning bridge
Show me which side you...
Choose your steel
Be the hero or die the fool
Just face me on this burning bridge
And show me which side you choose

[Solo - Patrick 3:22]
[Solo - Peter 3:50]

[Chorus:]
Choose your steel
Be the hero or play the fool
Face me on this burning bridge
Show me which side you...
Choose your steel
Be the hero or die the fool
Just face me on this burning bridge
And show me which side you choose
8. Wartorn
I am encased in the moonlit glow
Of sleepless nights
Caught in the haul of small towns
And cities drenched in moving light
Held only by the blink and the flash
Of a many writhing scowl
Brought forth the release of these
Rabid hell hounds

Fortified with our strength
We carry on until our backs may break

[Chorus:]
Banners fly, shield walls crack
This wartorn campaign
Never to look back
Conquering lands unseen
We stake our claim, sea to sea

[Solo - Peter 1:48]
[Solo - Patrick 1:54]

In this wartorn campaign
A crossing of common lives
With only strength to share
There's only minutes to bare
And it's all gone.. in the blink of an eye

Fortified with our strength
We carry on until our backs may break

[Chorus:]
Banners fly, shield walls crack
This wartorn campaign
Never to look back
Conquering lands unseen
We stake our claim, sea to sea

What moves us is a need to feel
The weight of a thousand faces
With piercing eyes that push us on
We destroy these cities
We decimate these towns
Each and every single one
Burnt to the ground

[Solo - Peter 3:35]
[Solo - Patrick 4:00]

[Chorus:]
Banners fly, shield walls crack
This wartorn campaign
Never to look back
Conquering lands unseen
We stake our claim, sea to sea
9. Hidden In White
[Solo - Patrick 0:54]
[Solo - Peter 1:01]

This is a dead man's vision we face
Thinly laced with promise and hate
Diluted and slaughtered
By frost bitten conductors
A heartless dissection of grace

Nailed down and force fed lies
Soldiers steadfast, defeating the design

[Chorus:]
We bare these storms
With fists held tight
This our last lifeless winter
Hidden in white
We bare these storms
With fists held tight
This our final hour
Hidden in white

[Solo - Peter 2:02]
[Solo - Patrick 2:09]

Now sink your teeth into the cold
And sign away to the brand
A bastard mold
Is there and end in sight,
Choked blind by the bright
Deceitful light

Nailed down and force fed lies
Soldiers advance, defeating the design

[Chorus:]
We bare these storms
With fists held tight
This our last lifeless winter
Hidden in white
We bare these storms
With fists held tight
This our final hour
Hidden in white

[Solo - Patrick 3:10]
[Solo - Andy 3:23]
[Solo - Patrick 3:37]
[Solo - Peter 3:50]

And so unfolds, this bottomless drop
Bound to this path by blood
We spit right back, back in the face
Of the faithless (of the faithless)

[Chorus:]
We bare these storms (we bare these storms)
With fists held tight
This our last lifeless winter
Hidden in white (hidden in white)
We bare these storms
With fists held tight (with fists held tight)
This our final hour
Hidden in white

Hidden in white
Hidden in white
Hidden in white
10. Vengeance and Victory
All legions crush them to dust
Forever turns black now frozen to rust
Awaken, feel the bliss in reverse
The weight of our struggle
Hunger and thirst

[Chorus:]
Triumph we seek
Vengeance and victory
Crush your enemies
Vengeance and victory

Legacies cursed to the wolves
The beasts of all burden
Have been turned loose
We will run where victory rides
So summon your strength
Summon your pride
Cold silence where
The final stand settles
We remain and wait
This is where the fatal
Strike hits it's mark
A storm of iron and rage

You are haunted by the heartless
Fooled by false prophets
Hunted by those of unbreakable will
No remorse, built to kill

[Chorus:]
Triumph we seek
Vengeance and victory
Crush your enemies
Vengeance and victory

[Chorus:]
Triumph we seek
Vengeance and victory
Crush your enemies
Vengeance and victory

A pitiless war to be waged this night
Crippling their courage
Leaving all crucified
To the death we stand and fight

[Solo - Peter 3:29]
[Solo - Patrick 3:57]

[Chorus:]
Triumph we seek
Vengeance and victory
Crush your enemies
Vengeance and victory

[Chorus:]
Triumph we seek
Vengeance and victory
Crush your enemies
In vengeance and victory
11. Triumph
