Riders of the Plague Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Riders Of The Plague (4:01)
So salvation here runs the flood
Here dies the love
The banner of the ungranted
And our darkest days
The feelings that were forced
Out of fear without a drop of remorse
Now that the pain is released
With cryptic seals and signs
Running over heartstrings wretched and run dry
When the feathered begin to fall
With a voice like glass
Born to splint and shatter
The touch of sunlight
Like heavens plague, the birth of black
With hung halos of wrath and decay
The furthest of faith, the Rider of Plagues
Our hands have reached thin of skin
Sifted straight to bone
Bare and broken as the inventors hope
Unseen by the believed
Unbelieved by all who see
So when you become every dream abhorred
A being so bitter not worth the weight of ice in his words
With a voice like glass
Born to splint and shatter
The touch of sunlight
Like heavens plague, the birth of black
With hung halos of wrath and decay
The furthest of faith, the Rider of Plagues
With a voice just like glass
Born to splint and born to shatter
The touch of sunlight
Like heavens plague, the birth of black
With hung halos of wrath and decay
The furthest of faith, the Rider of Plagues
2. Dead And Gone (5:04)
When syllables go soundless
The sensation kills you
To the brink of burning
From the fill of your filth
To their lacking skill
While walking through these walls
I've come to find no unconditional
I am now breeding fear
Deep into your soul
You may live on as nothing
I am now dead and gone
Reaching further into the void
Past the gates of slumber - forever night
To a non-believer, from a distance
It seems much clearer
The total loss of mind
From suspended faith
To where it must die
I am now breeding fear
Deep into your soul
You may live on as nothing
I am now dead and gone
I am now breeding fear
Deep into your soul
You may live on as nothing
I am now dead and gone
It would be senseless to drag this out
Anymore then time could wither
Clock hands corrode
Live on as nothing
You'll live on as nothing
While walking through these walls
I've come to find no unconditional
I am now breeding fear
Deep into your soul
You may live on as nothing
I am now dead and gone
I am now breeding fear
Deep into your soul
You may live on as nothing
I am now dead and gone
Dead and gone
Breeding this fear deep in your soul
I am now dead and gone
3. The Murder (5:22)
The gathering now of storms within
That whip and rip the stead, joined at the head
Dying to make ready for the deliverance to the land
The swarming devourers, the Murder
Here are the fortunes to tell
Of our demonic dreams the burnt fires of hell
Painted in black
The warmth is seething and moving all through me
Total
Annihilation
We are your masters now
I can see them coming down like rain in the streets
Soaking into everything
Like blood through cloth
Scratching limbs from wing and claw
All life will start to slow, and freeze into position
When the murder crows
With likeness to shades much deeper than dull
The infinite abyss forever holds
Total
Annihilation
We are your masters now
Crushing your premonition
Crushing your premonition
Towers fall into the fire
And razored hails of glass and steel
Brought down by stabs of rage without fear
Gashed hearts worked deep who refuse to hear
Here are the fortunes to tell
Of our demonic dreams the burnt fires of hell
Painted in black
The warmth is seething and moving all through me
Total
Annihilation
We are your masters now
4. Echos (5:05)
Blinded behind walls of
Self built stained glass
Focus enters eyes well watered
At last, with vision split
Hewn end to end, life -force leaked
From sun-cracked skin
In the blink of an eye, dying too is the quick
This life story to tell with one second to live
The hammer comes down on thunder strikes
Where we burn fast in the build of our lives
Slowing down, to see the mountains you built
This life story to tell with one second to live
Slowing down, to see the time that passed you by
Your life story to tell with only one second to live
Time takes throne to purge the fill of our flight
When days turn into years and a loss of life
Death rattles a mile away
From your restless symphony
The ridden thought unsound,
The shadows that crept lonely all around
The hammer comes down on thunder strikes
Where we burn fast in the build of our lives
Now waiting will just not work
When tales must be told, changed and retold
Slowing down, to see the mountains you built
This life story to tell with one second to live
Slowing down, to see the time that passed you by
Your life story to tell with only one second to live
Slowing down, to see the mountains you built
This life story to tell with one second to live
Slowing down, to see the time that passed you by
Your life story to tell with only one second to live
5. World Divides (5:35)
There is an aftertaste to celebrate
In the swings of my suicide,
or the lines I will draw by myself
Within the grasp, fictitious pasts, and all my doubts
How can you see through the shadows
With the blinding light (Burning in your eyes)
So where will all of you be
When the killing fields are cleared and the world divides?
How can you see through the shadows
With the blinding light (Burning in your eyes)
So where will you be
When the killing fields are cleared and this world divides?
The loss of heart becomes unbearable
And a vanishing point becomes intact
So when a six foot drop is my best
I will expect nothing less than a soldier's death
How can you see through the shadows
With the blinding light (Burning in your eyes)
So where will all of you be
When the killing fields are cleared and the world divides?
How can you see through the shadows
With the blinding light (Burning in your eyes)
So where will you be
When the killing fields are cleared and this world divides?
There is an aftertaste to celebrate
In the swings of my suicide,
or the lines I've drawn
At last for redemption
And finally for my forgiveness
In the end this bitterness bends
Simply encased in my withered hands
How can you see through the shadows
With the blinding light (Burning in your eyes)
So where will all of you be
When the killing fields are cleared and the world divides?
How can you see through the shadows
With the blinding light (Burning in your eyes)
So where will you be
When the killing fields are cleared and this world divides?
6. Prosperity (4:08)
[Instrumental]
7. Untitled (0:04)
I will not bear the watch while the animated sadness releases
A cyanide touch for us
So utterly devastating its measure glides
The breath that is born of behemoth size
Unveiled exhumed when everything twists into form
For you to see all in a perilous mourn
With long relentless devotion
The grant of these open wounds and this heartless rip
The drains are waiting for the loss of your blood
Enter all simple solutions
The center of this wasteland
So barren and bleak, so feeble and weak
With a quick flash of ice in your chest
Like falling into a mine field, face first
Is this the snap of your filament or the grimmest devout
Is this the snap of your neck rung red hung in this rope
I will not let this subside
For the still beating heart that is buried inside
The depths of old to the births of war
The weak will beg, swaggering in dissent
The weak will beg, of instant revelations
The weak will beg, in risk to repent
The weak will beg, for death again and again and again
The shattered screams of a people unfulfilled
With the sight and with the sound
The reign of steel, their blood unbound
Is this the snap of your filament or the grimmest devout
Is this the snap of your neck rung red hung in this rope
I will not let this subside
For the still beating heart that is buried inside
The depths of old to the births of war
The weak will beg, swaggering in dissent
The weak will beg, of instant revelations
The weak will beg, in risk to repent
The weak will beg, for death again and again and again
The weak will beg, swaggering in dissent
The weak will beg, of instant revelations
The weak will beg, in risk to repent
The weak will beg, for death again and again and again and again and again and again
8. Awakening (5:13)
We are all withered away
In this suffered position
With the choke of truth
The long unseen, the short believed
If this is enough I'll distance my hands
From heaven's touch
I cannot believe my eyes are seeing
The breach of ours undone
Because the road to hell had become far to long
March through the darkest light
Destroy everything in sight
To the bane of our being
All eyes open
March through the darkest light
Destroy everything in sight
To the bane of our being
All eyes open for The Awakening
Decide now if you want in wrong
A shallowing grin is sure to become;
Lies that shift the storm
Become blankets to a man well worn
Ripe with stench and rot
Feeling the burst, awaken with pain
With all to the wayside now
We are destined to be below the freeze
Now that these pages turn
There is nothing but regrets gone distant
So now that these pages burn
It's one more thing that I won't forget
Now that these pages turn
There is nothing but regrets gone distant
So now that these pages burn
It's one more thing that I won't forget
March through the darkest light
Destroy everything in sight
To the bane of our being
All eyes open
March through the darkest light
Destroy everything in sight
To the bane of our being
All eyes open for The Awakening
The Awakening
March through the darkest light
Destroy everything in sight
To the bane of our being
All eyes open
9. Merciless (6:44)
10. Into The Pit (2:48)
[Testament cover]
11. The Victorious Dead (4:16)
Can you hear us when we scream
Of our burdened beliefs
Ending all sanity
The wrong to right, indeed I wonder
The promise to break instead to suffer
Can you see us when we bleed
With wounds a mile deep
Spraying profusely
The pain to feel indeed it grows
The tables to tune instead to fuel
Something inside us fades
When weakness turns into trying
We all must carry on
For the slaughtered and the dying
Can you feel us when we kill
Everything that you have built
We must stop at nothing
The wrong to right, ha!
Indeed I wonder
The promise you broke, instead you suffer
Something inside us fades
When weakness turns into trying
We all must carry on
For the slaughtered and the dying
Something inside us fades
When weakness turns into trying
We all must carry on
For the slaughtered and the dying
We all must carry on
For the slaughtered and the dying
We all must carry on
For the slaughtered and the dying
Yeah
