The Autumn Offering Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level
1. Cotton Shooter (0:34)
(instrumental)
2. Synapse (2:53)
Opiate magnet
It's thirst and it was pulling
We met in the earth while I laid on dry dirt
I humbly serve you
Queen of the dragon
Chasing, raping, killing
Dying freezing
Lying to your loved ones
Stealing
You are the eater of men's souls

So you burn me again like a moth to the flame
Drown in her depths
(slay me)
Swim in her shame
Corroding like rust as she tears you apart

I am the product
Rotten offspring of the needle
Chemical synapse dictates behavior
A fool if bought my lies
I'd sell your soul to the devil if it'd get me high

Lysergik chemical drip
Methadone waste land
My days burn together
My nights in a nod
Drowning
Your killing me
You know I'll submit every time

I am the product
Rotten offspring of the needle
Chemical synapse dictates behavior
A fool if bought my lies
I'd sell your soul to the devil if it'd get me high

Lysergik chemical drip
Methadone waste land
My days burn together
My nights in a nod
Drowning
Your killing me
You know I'll submit every time
3. Born Dead (3:55)
Cold silence grips me
The life-giving womb a grave
Breathe embryonic poison
Takes my breath away
Shadows engulf this day in black
For one such as I born to his death
My blood of life the venom
Forever wear it's stain

Fuck you and you're broken hands
Fuck you for words unsaid
Fuck all you're malice and you're lies
I am the scar forever cut into your skin
I am the living born dead

Your just a fucking used up hole
(Sent back to the shadows)
Cauterized dead and bloated

These are your last days
Closed permanently
Theres only one exit left
Burn

[CHORUS]

From the blood of perdition
I stood and looked into it's eyes
Ripe with death and putrefaction
No God to hear my infant cries
Through stained glass cracks I slipped and slithered
My name drips off the serpent's tongue

Wolves and snakes encircle me
Yet cannot kill the son of man

From the blood of perdition
Pray for a invocation
Death doesn't know my name
I've lived this life in vain
4. Exhale the Locusts (4:00)
I tried to bleed out, bleed out the sickness
With synthetic remorse
Like tempests they assail from the sky

And I'm sorry (So sorry)
for all I've done to you
In my hour of shame, twisting, turning blind, deaf
Waif-like and thinning

(Chorus)
Go... Run away
Don't look back until your eyes bear the strain of new light
Exhale all of the sorrow I've brought unto you
Exhale the locusts

Exhale the locusts

Better off unfeeling numb and motionless
Frozen like a sleeping death
Cold mother You're gone
All I'm left with is my hate

No, with my blood opiate entwines her poison lips on mine
I'm better off in the lye, for I've got nothing anymore

Go... Run away
Don't look back until your eyes bear the strain of new light
Exhale all of the sorrow I've brought unto you
Exhale the locusts

[Solo]

Go... Run away
Don't look back until your eyes bear the strain of new light
Exhale all of the sorrow I've brought unto you
Exhale the locusts

The sun you've always known
a bleeding heart
Your Achilles heel
the sun you've always known
We fade away
5. Fed to the Lions (4:27)
I shade myself into the backlight of a room
My shadow apes my movements
The needle and the spoon

Now I can't sleep without going numb
So many nightmares forming
Left alone, with no force for resistance

Don't you dare tell anyone
Raped, abused, and shaken
Dark-minded maturation
Closed fist domination
(I'm still alive)

Cold vengeance, just for fun
Sickle to brains the sum
Gut string violins, dark movement begins
Closing haunted hymns

I'll stab your eyes I'll tear you apart
Left in a unmarked burial mound
Quartered and bound to the corpse of a pig
You'll be together underground

The scenes replay
Haunting me again
The killer and the wound
Bound in an endless dance

So tell me how the fuck am I supposed to move on?
Please tell me how to forgive those who took my youth away

I prayed to a God that never was
My screams fell on deaf ears
I'm alone with my time in hell
If I can't die then please let me sleep

Sad little man, born of sin
Blood dripping from your blade
Ask your God why you’re alive
You only wanted to be saved

No salvation for the rapist priest
So many lies, so many truths to bend
Well you can fuck yourself with your cross
Then put a bullet in your fucking head

So tell me how the fuck am I supposed to move on?
Please tell me how to forgive those who took my youth away

Please just let me sleep again!
Again!

I prayed to a God that never was
My screams fell on deaf ears
I'm alone with my time in hell
If I can't die then please let me sleep

Scars that never will heal over
They always remain...
They always remain...

I prayed to a God that never was
My screams fell on deaf ears
I'm alone with my time in hell
If I can't die then please let me sleep
6. Hessian Blade (3:24)
Rise (x2)
Don't write your epitaph until the body dies
Hate fuels the strength within you
Therein your will resides to crush all
To crush all the ones who've wronged you

Spit back in their face (Back in their face)
Fight for your God-given life
Lay to waste (Lay to waste)
Destroy what conspires against you

Nobody knows, not one
The pain...
The pain you have overcome
Don't lose your fight,
Too many good soldiers have died
Carry the Hessian blade
Of malice and hatred, We rise
War from the Hessian blade

From ashes, the phoenix takes flight

Fear breeds in the eyes of brothers, dead sons make godless mothers
This war, we answer the call

Nobody knows, not one
The pain (The Pain)
The pain you have overcome
Don't lose your fight
Too many good soldiers have died

Born to a brutal world
Its your convictions that define you
Decides who
Separates the fools from the cowards

Carry the Hessian blade

[Solo]

This is who you are, and no one can define you

Nobody knows, not one.
The pain (The Pain)
The pain you have overcome (Overcome)
Don't lose your fight
Too many good soldiers have died
7. Death Mask (3:30)
The sins of the father (x2)
A family portrait hung upon the wall (Douse the sleeping bodies)
Unaware, yet marked for death
Cold, sadistic mother
Ashes are what she yearns

Haunting breeze, weighing down, then crawl away, they left you to drown
The depths give up the dead

(Chorus)
Slit open wrists for the martyred, suffer no more
Revolt
The pain of their lives you couldn't bear (Couldn't bear)
So put out the fires of their souls (Of their souls)
Release the pyre from the altar of hell

Alone we fall down
Silently drown
Kill this life again

Again (x8)

A failed god, living inside of you, condemned
Murdered inside of you
Time for reprieve

Slit open wrists for the martyred, suffer no more
Revolt
The pain of their lives you couldn't bear, (Couldn't bear)
So put out the fires of their souls (Of their souls)
Release the pyre from the altar of hell
8. Viral (3:15)
Thirty will not buy reprieve

Your words are daggers that break like plastic swords
So pick up your torches it s conviction that eludes you
I defend what s mine with a murderous rage
Herein the start of your nightmare

No matter how many holes you pierce, you will never be half of me
The act has run its course, pray at the alter of heresy

(Chorus)
I'll take your fucking heart, I'll leave you ripped and bleeding
So get up off your knees
And when I take your life, you better look me in the eyes
Or die just how you lived yours
Spineless, viral
You'd crawl to your coffin

Corroded, scaled and grotesque
Filled with an undying hate

Malignant, sentenced to death, for all the lies betrayed

No matter how many holes you pierce, you will never be half of me
The act has run its course, a cesspool of a bloodline

I'll take your fucking heart, I'll leave you ripped and bleeding
So get up off your knees
And when I take your life, you better look me in the eyes
Or die just how you lived yours
Spineless, viral
You'd crawl to your coffin

Viral

I'll take your fucking heart, I'll leave you ripped and bleeding
So get up off your knees
And when I take your life, you better look me in the eyes
Or die just how you lived yours
Spineless, viral
You'd crawl to your coffin

You'd crawl to your coffin
9. Among Wolves (2:55)
Vampires fled to foreign lands, asylum for the disconnected
Hope died within his hands, a shroud for the protected.
Preying on the blood soaked lamb, destruction complete.
Is this the American dream?

A man of no compassion, wages war of attrition, to awaken the beast within.
It's coming back around

(Chorus)
Have you forgotten me?
For the wounded I stand.
You fled when you left the broken
The curtain's falling down for you.
Can't hide again.

They hide the scars, the shame.
The rapist across the sea.
Who will hunt down the wolf?
When our own country fails us, are we so far gone into the flames?
Burn Hollywood to the ground

Salt the ground, buried face down (Stand among serpents)
The western world in thrall.

All you motherfucking bleeding hearts, let the oceans swallow you all

The knife rises, the noose tightens, no man can escape his fate
10. Bloodlust (4:01)
Spoken lies in a whispered voice
Drag the blade across my skin
You present me with no other choice
Let the bloodletting begin
Cut the veins let the blood run hot
To caress the beauty of the porcelain skin
I'll drain you of the life you know
If you only return the sin
Skin and bones
No weight for the hanging
Shattered wrists
Feel no sting
Your my temple of flesh and bone
Yet I'll tear it right down again Surrender
Your heart to the knife
I don't recall a choice
Flesh to flesh without purpose
Some lay dead while others mourn
Cut from the womb of a living doll
I can't control this bloodlust
Is it worth the sin if I go on?
We both lose in a game not meant to be won
We are a decaying flesh of an age
The beating heart of a world no longer existing
Look at us cutting each other
(Lost inside this tainted machine)
Is this what we've become?
(I often wish I couldnt feel)
Beyond the suicidal thoughts of darkness
(The black engulfs me)
Surrender
Your heart to the knife
I don't recall a choice
Flesh to flesh without purpose
Some lay dead while others mourn
Cut from the womb of a living doll
I can't control this bloodlust
Is it worth the sin if I go on?
We both lose in a game not meant to be won
11. Myriad Black (4:01)
The falsely innocent born of liars, preying on the world
Blood from open wrists, bait temptation
Let death unfurl

I am the scar across the eyes, of the prophets that feed off the lies
Collapsing the masses, you will never turn blood into wine

(Chorus)
Bones broken, lies left unspoken
How can I believe in this world that you sold me?
So bait temptation, death unfurls

You'll grow to loathe their names

Prophecies of lies to bait the walking dead
It justifies my grotesque existence

You'll bleed...
from the inside out, swallow the shit you're fed

Feed the gears with the martyrs
The lamentations of their daughters
Rebirth from the death of the father, corrupting the innocent blood

Bones broken, lies left unspoken
How can I believe in this world that you sold me?
So bait temptation, death unfurls

[Solo]

Bones broken, lies left unspoken
How can I believe in this world that you sold me?
So bait temptation, death unfurls
