Fear Will Cast No Shadow Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level
1. From Atrophy To Obsession
Don't turn away
Don't say your last goodbyes
I bled for you
You know I tried
When you're rid of me
What will you look back and say?
That your wasted time
You can't get back and try
Left too numb to cry
And now the skies have blackened

This cross I bear for you

And now I'm dying again
By flames of my obsession
I won't let you go
If I could clip off your wings
Spit out the bitter poison
Silence will leave you cold

Hold on to this misery
When it's all that you've known

I hold on in the wake of your absence
In my heart I can't let go

And now I'm dying again
By flames of my obsession
I won't let you go
If I could clip off your wings
Spit out the bitter poison
Silence will leave you cold

I do this all for myself
Always I seek redemption
Silence will leave you cold
2. The Castaway
Our demons are on display
Be damned these eyes have seen
You can't cure a poisoned soul
Can't fix an addict gene

Like a vulture to a corpse
Like a convict to a chain
Among the harlots and the whores
"Don't fear the dark!", she said
Fear what it hides
In every trace of malice
That filthy whore resides

Between her legs lies man's infection
St. Peter closed the gates of heaven
Welcome to Babylon 2007
Empathy beats in our hearts no more
So different looks your paradise
When birthed by Satan's whore

Rape
Souls we'll rape
Defy him
Shapes
Profane shapes
Deny him
In this heart I give to you
My bleeding virtue
My life in vain

We're all dead inside (trespass against me)
We're all dead inside (..and by god, I'll catch you)

In this heart I give to you
My bleeding virtue
My life in vain

..We're all dead inside..
3. Crown Yourself A King, Kill Yourself A Queen
Distance has bred avidity
I'm trapped and cannot fail
Now I dissolve alone
These days have bled me dry
I've been left alone here
To drown in my own fears
These days have bled me dry

If lies were true and lies were new
Would you still walk alone
Or would you sharpen words
That cut me to the bone
I've been left alone here
To drown in my own fears
Darkness cover me tonight
I'm trapped in your shadows
I'm broken by sorrow

Love will be denied to me
We're at the ending of our travels
Her bitter words I bleed
The grains of our spent lives
The sands were shifting downward
Killing what I can not have
Met me melt away the lies
Let me take away your soul
I cant make you real
I watched the stars die in your eyes
4. Silence and Goodbye
Distance between us bears its weight on me
These words I pledge to you
I will never falter
I resent the burdens laid on you
Through my convictions
We will be together again
No matter what the trials
They will not break us

My life reflects these screams
Hate tore through me at the seams
Been shaped through bitter years
The venom burned my tears
My life I give to you
This fight I will not lose
You are my heart
Alone I am nothing

The weapons they trust
Will slowly wither and rust
Ensuring all that falls around us failed you
Ill see you again
Its just more then I could stand
This road I walk is paved with failure
This is my declaration
Impose my will
They fall against me

These walls are suffocating
All the world has seen the scars I bear
I know you'll never judge me
Through my convictions we will be together again
I cant forget the past
These wounds were meant to last
Yet I still face the day
A testament to strength
The rage to overcome
My battles fought and won
You are my heart
Alone I am nothing
5. All That Fails Around Us
Upon my crimson thorns
A king in my own mind
Encase my dying heart
These wall built far too high

No more my words shall be taken for granted by you
Your vanity
My failure
The silence burned us through

I've been lost in endless seas
My heart died long ago
I curse my failures as I fall from you

This one last flame I wish to burn
The day that left us dead
Time's carved my bitter soul
That you don't understand
One last flame

Within the waves she looks as I recall
Naked and cold
One last flame

Now when I cast my eyes to open water
Her image will appear
A vision of beauty broken
Her words forever spoken
"How could you leave me here"?

I've been lost in endless seas
My heart died long ago
I curse my failures as I fall from you
This candle's burning one last flame
The darkness covers all
With a dying breath I speak your name
Alone among the fall
6. A Great Distance
Raise your voices to the stars
Upon this silent alter
From lips to her brow
Still accused
Did I not bleed for you

I cant get the stain off
Burned by the foolish pride
You left me
With idle hands I left love
I let it turn to dust
My blood runs cold
Her kiss a venomous taste
Roses turn to withered stalks
Alone I tread this path I walk

I cant get the stain off
With my heart on my sleeve
Like a badge of sorrow
You made a fool of me
Now your blood is my desire
To drain you of life I must do
Give yourself to me
To walk away from light

Let me drown in the flood
Blind by the fear of what was
Some are kings
All are fools
None can last
None can choose
Take these scars
I gave a lifetime
7. Your Time Is Mine
These embers turn to flames of yearning
I walked behind for too long
I can't stop the bleeding
These open wounds you left aren't healing
How the days just burn away
For you, I wished for something better

Cover my mouth and take my breath away
You killed the life inside of me
You walked away and left me to crawl
These changes in your heart deserving
Nothing more than to say you were right

Cover my mouth and take my breath away
You killed the life inside of me
You walked away and left me to crawl
Open your wrists
I'll let you bleed on me
Don't live another day
You walked away and left me to crawl

These open wounds aren't healing
Nothing is forever

..And when I dream of the light in your eyes
I still reach for you
Into the night

Nothing is forever

Cover my mouth and take my breath away
You killed the life inside of me
You walked away and left me to crawl

Cover my mouth and take my breath away
You killed the life inside of me
You walked away and left me to crawl
8. Fear Will Cast No Shadow
This is my retribution
Your betrayal awoke my ire
Your one life counts as hundreds blood
Drained cast upon the pyre
Empires fall and cities crumble
Still no remorse left for the dead

..And I search for you
In a sea of faces
They're all the same to me
Ask the dead if they'll trade places
..And this wolf you would set free
This wolf you would set free

All light will vanish
Your angels sing no more
The stain of choking prayers
The wolf is at your door
You sit with rival gods
At your feet you find your place in hell
This is my retribution
Your betrayal awoke my life
9. March of the Clones
Stupor of fools
Trapped in a paradox
Slip back
Dream state
Flesh crawls as your body rots away
Angels with broken halos
A sawn song
Burn away the day
Its not your plight
So why even try
A trap in every word you say

Now your left to pick up the ruins
She holds you captive in lies

I cant see the strings
Yet I feel them pulling slow
I've got hell inside of me
I'm falling down

How could you feed me poison
How could you take my dignity

She holds you captive in lies

The clones keep marching on....
10. The Wolves At Your Door
The relics of my long dead past
A black rose in constant bloom
No tears for my misfortune
This shadow
Heart no one intrudes
...And I've lived in my own way
These words I've lived to tell
When you knew you couldn't save me
To open arms or death you gave me

If my words open your eyes
Would that make this justified
I've been left behind

So why do we seek our tortures
Blind words of noble men
This opaque heart I curse
I've come so far now
The past I've left behind
These years of anguish left me hollow

You have crowned yourself a queen
Yet a pawn that you have made
I choke in the blackened waters
Amidst the waves
Alive we'll burn
11. Dystopiate
Most people live without purpose
Blessed are the dead
You'll find the weight of burden heavy
Like a soul filled with lead

Our bones will grind together
In a mass grave
No one weeps
While children drown together
Sustain the creatures of the deep

I reject your morals
I've seen too many years of sorrow
Fuck this rotting planet from poisoned waters
East of nothing
We lost our burning passion
Pain of failure is hard to bear
Took a bullet ride to Cobain fashion
For our deeds were watered in our fears

How civil men turn vicious
In the quest for gold and wealth
Use words of plastic values
Then hit below the belt
