...the Awakening Lyrics

Submitted by level Sathanas
1. The Awakening (Interpolating the Wrath of the Undead) (9:08)
I arise once again. Cannot die my friend.
It's been years since I was laid to res.
Don't know what I've done. Only what I've become.
For me... No rest.
I walk again with a hunger that never ends.
I starve forever. I'ts you I'll drain.
You'll never be the same. I'll make you like me.
Awake once more. From lost tales of yore.
The demon you thought. Was a lie.

I'm here with you. Nothing you can do.
And when I'm done you'll never die
2. The Judge (6:02)
Blackend hear rotten bones. He sits upon condemnations throne.
And oversees the torturers hand. Crushes hopes of those long damned.

Lord of Chains. Prince of despair.
Is your heart even there.
You sit above the acts you call.
The world cares not when you fall.

He's a priest of vengeance. Societie's beast.
Devils grow fat at his feast
3. The Jury (7:27)
The damning eyes glaring down. Judgement rendered guilt is found.
The jury's voice sings out clear. Execution. Your time is near.

You were guilty as the oaths were sworn. A felon to die upon the morn.
Limbs spread far and wide. Traitorous bastard. You've nowhere to hide.

You're awake at the birth of the Sun. A cock cries your end's begun.
Dragged and beaten from your cell. Your head for the law. Your soul for Hell
4. Broken on the Wheel (5:38)
An angel of scorn, the lord of the lash. To be ripped and torn, to gore and to gash.
Vengeance is born and must sever and slash. All traitors shall mourn in anger and ash.

They break your bones, you suffer and moan. Into hell fire you're hurled.
Daggers of pain rip at your brain. Soon to be leaving this world.
Gasping and crying tortured and dying...

The leather caress you give out your last breath. Broken on the wheel.
The blood lays in pools beneath the torturer's tools.
And flies feast as flames lick the sky.

Break him
5. The Executioner (3:22)
I stand at Death's side with a bloody hand. Mine is the blade of law.
Hear now your last command. Your struggle is futile.
Come now and die like a man. Speak now your final words.
And take Death's hand.

Take his head. He will know the law.
Executioner. Let your axe fall.

With ritegous wrath. Thy will be done.
The blood flows free now. Hell's work's begun.
I stand at Death's side with a bloody hand. Speak now your final words.
And take Death's hand.

Take his head. He will know the law.
Executioner. Let your axe fall
6. Blessed Pathway to the Celestial Kingdom (2:58)
7. The Burial (9:32)
My eyes are closed now. No more do I hear their sounds.
I lay in this cold dark grave. No more is there need to pray.

Death's hands reach out for me.
Life's grip. Soon set free.
The end of suffering. This will all be over soon.
Take me down low. Inside this earthen tomb.
Oh God.

Forever seal me in this tomb. Take me back into creation's womb.
Lower my body into this grave. To the Lord of Light I pray.
My soul...
To Save
