The Dead Eye Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. The Premonition (0:58)
2. The Flood (4:07)
[Music: A Bjorler / Lyrics: Dolving]

Will you ever look past your self-sufficient illusions
The structure's true foundations rest within you
The price we pay for sheer indifference
Surrendered self discount spare parts
You give up your rights for your limitations and abandon all hope

One step further down the line as the flood begins to rise
You're on your knees faking ambition
Now close your eyes and bleed

I know there are things from the past that should never be brought back
The ghosts of stale ideals and burning bridges
In Simplified inane depictions of a different world
A lie to serve the fold and the forces in them
As you give up your rights for your limitations
And lay down your arms

One step further down the line as the flood begin to rise
Your on your knees faking ambitions
Now Close your eyes ...

In the darkest corner of my mind
I see a boy with a crooked smile
With a crown made of tinsel and glass beads on a wire

Singing a song out of time
Now if you believe I'll bleed for you...
and if I could bleed - so could you
Close your eyes and pretend it'll go away
But you know that you've got nothing to lose
3. The Medication (3:10)
[Music: A Bjorler / Lyrics: Dolving]

I'm sick. I can see it now, clear as daylight
So fucking what ? Keep your opinions and leave me out
Paint it red burn the bitch - Let her serve herself
The pain is real, it's all true I was there

Going insane's overrated
I was right all along
You're all the monsters - I am the normal one
So here I am and yes I'm fine fucking fabulous alright
(Somehow) I'll make it out alive, no matter how...

The medication knocks the edge right off and every step away
From feeling this is beauty in its own right
The sidetracks and your skilled manipulation of my senses
Left me down - but I've been down before...

Pigs are a noble creature compared to scum like you,
But I'm certain there's one way out there left to chew

The medication knocks the edge right off and every step away
From feeling this is beauty in its own right
The sidetracks and your skilled manipulation of my senses
Left me down - but I've been down before...

Ain't nothing you could say
Ain't nothing you could do
Ain't nothing there at all for you
Suppose I could make you see - Would it make a change?
Well, come inside and burn

The medication knocks the edge right off and every step away
From feeling this is beauty in its own right
The sidetracks and your skilled manipulation of my senses
Left me down - but I've been down before...
4. The Crowning (4:13)
[Music: J Bjorler, Dolving, A Bjorler / Lyrics: Dolving]

High on fire and solid confidence
Truthful rantings but no one is listening
Check collateral, sweep the corners
The fear of words in a fucked-up reality

Steal my freedom of speech my liberty
Fail my rights to express myself
All this half-lied semperfi stone-faced bullshit
Infecting me to deplete my design

I'm drowning in the fear of gods
The more I see the less I want
I was not raised to shut my mouth
But as long as it holds me
I'll fight it and scold it
All my life !

Merge and fold to avoid complexity
All we know is a backfire parody
Know your place see no malady
Shut your hole and accept the abuse
Let it burn ! Let it burn ! Let it burn !
I don't care if we all go down
Let it burn ! Let it burn ! Let it burn !
I don't care if we all go down

I'm drowning in the fear of gods
The more I see the less I want
I was not raised to shut my mouth
But as long as it holds me
I'll fight it and scold it
All my life !

As I close my eyes I can see it now
In sepia twilight sundown to the sound of electrical eyes
The obedient sons and the daughters all perfectly in line
All hail, raised hands in impeccable synchronicity

I'm drowning in the fear of gods
The more I see the less I want
I was not raised to shut my mouth
But as long as it holds me
I'll fight it and scold it
All my life !
5. The Reflection (3:47)
[Music: A Bjorler / Lyrics: Dolving]

She was a little girl and I was only just learning to crawl
I would call her name to see her beautiful eyes glow
Oh - Look at me
Oh - Look at me

They tell you to hold on and say that one day you'll understand
Well I'm still waiting
I'm still here
I want something more
Something kind
Something pure

She was a little jonesy, oh I should know
He was a little backwards man with nothing much to show
And everything she said would leave me cold
And everything he did leads to nowhere
It all amounts to this...
All this time I never knew who deceiving

I am becoming - I am become
I am becoming - I am the one
I am reflection
I am the sun
I am the shadow
I am the gun

I want something more
Something kind
Something pure
6. The Prosecution (3:50)
[Music: J Bjorler / Lyrics: Dolving]

It's a waste of kindness and hard-earned cash
A trap for those in possession of doubt - lacking choices
Through all these misgivings an arrogant smile
You're the perfect victim

Forgive my lack of empathy
Oh, I just love watching you bleed
The things you do for gold and green
You're so amusing

I saw what you did, and how much it hurt you
Some things never heal
They'll approve for as long as you fall
On spit-covered concrete
And gold plate stars

The greed is appalling
Your soul is a ghost
Now your flesh is for sale

Forgive my lack of empathy
Oh, just love watching you bleed
The things you do for gold and green
You're pulling teeth of pleasure

Well if this is the road we choose
If this is the path preferred
If this is where we're headed now
Welcome to hell...

So fuck your mask
Fuck your bland conceit
Fuck your precious croonies too
Confess
Stooge

Forgive my lack of empathy
Oh, just love watching you bleed
The things you do for gold and green
You're pulling teeth of pleasure

Well if this is the road we choose
If this is the path preferred
If this is where we're headed now
7. The Fallout (4:22)
[Music: A Bjorler / Lyrics: Dolving]

Seaweeds like emerald veins she sleep beneath the breaking weight
A silent dying ocean's slow defeat
The floods will rise and take us all
An end to all this quarrel
A final grace to rid her grief
Oh, Mother show no mercy for me

Wash the stains away
Come unto me again
Open yourself beneath us all (swallow)
Purge the soil
Burn the surface
Erase, Erase
Erase the past again

Oh, she will sleep like a breathing fire's kiss upon you
Oh, my darling dear walk carefully
Perhaps she'll still be there ? (wake up!)
The rivers to rise again

Wash the stains away
Come upon me again
Open yourself beneath us all (swallow)
Purge the soil
Burn the surface
Erase, Erase
Erase the past again

[whispering:]
I am my brother's keeper
I am my brother's keeper
An eye for an eye until everyone's blind
?...
I'm sick of it
I'm sick of the blood
I'm sick of it
?...

Don't you want something real
Don't you want something real
8. The Medusa (4:05)
[Music: J Bjorler, A Bjorler / Lyrics: Dolving]

She is a saint
Her womb is a place of rejection
She washes her perfect skin quietly
And hates me for being real

Kill the lights and listen for noises to give you away
Sanctuary [x3]
I need a place where I can feel...

[John James Hewitt (1931-1969) The Orchard:]
''It feels like we're all locked up in little cages''
''The celling is closing in, and the walls...
The walls are closing in - Can't you feel that?''

I will turn my eyes away
I will not turn into stone
No more accusations and lies

She's spreading her self
Flesh giving away to flesh
I watch her bones
I'm being eaten alive

Remove the eyes
Remove the eyes
Remove the intentions and kill the light

Her love is a blinding line of fire to where I stand
Her love is as cold as her desire
I'll never be free
9. The Shifter (2:55)
[Music: A Bjorler / Lyrics: Dolving]

Generic, symbolic bullshit
Simplified, cliché rehash
It's all streamlined, adjusted to match
Pimped-up junk rides and a minimum life span

Consider a truth (and you hate it)
It's all just a game to you (so you lose)
I'll give you a clue (a foul taste to prove)
If you do what they pay you to do - What are you?

A common thief should feel more pride than you

Washed out, dumbed down crash site
No brain conceptional straight faced lies
An army of well-dressed mannequins
House-broke clones without a clue as to why and what for...

The harder you fight it (the more your lose)
Because it's all right there (in the fine print)
Never mind how you go about it
The sad truth; it's just a part of the process...

A common thief should left more pride than you

Move - Move the goods
Push - Keep pushing the product
10. The Cynic (3:48)
[Music: A Bjorler / Lyrics: Dolving]

Keep your sticky fingers off me
I hate the stench of you
Sickening and stale

The sharp synthetic lies
Bleach amyl, dust and sweat
Cold hands and shivers inside

Who was a victim
and who are you to say?
I was so much younger then
All these years I've kept my silence

Save your sympathies

Shut up and give in
There is no sin, nothing can change it (we're all alone)
Once the damage is done...

I never wanted this
I blame me

Shut up and give in
There is no sin, nothing can change it (nothing at all)
Once the damage is done...
11. The Failure (5:10)
[Music: Dolving, A Bjorler, J Bjorler / Lyrics: Dolving]

Give it away, watch it turn - there's nothing I can do for you
These are my very last and don't we all know it...
As chemistry turns into crime
I'm helplessly watching it die

You were never supposed to be
Someone who'd get this close
This is not my victory
Get your sickness away from me
Accusation in velveteen
Tear it up, tear it open and lay it beside me...

Show me a way, something frail
Gimme one reason to break these chains
I played your very last - all your desires
But something inside of me broke
I used to be more than this ...

You were never supposed to be
Someone who'd get this close
This is not my victory
Get your sickness away from me
Accusation in velveteen
Tear it up, tear it open and lay it beside me...

Together we fall
Together we fail

Drain me from all life inside
I will hurt you ever so carefully
We will breathe in unison through an iron lung
For the lost things we become
I'll be your crown of thorns
You'll be my cross to bear

You hate me so good!
12. The Stain (4:14)
[Music: J Bjorler, A Bjorler / Lyrics: Dolving]

There is no real way out, no I'm still in here fighting
I've never been losing forever, destroying myself in spite
Grid my teeth
Breaking myself
I nurtured a snake

So keep your misery and well-put sympathies
I am not your alibi (I am not the one)
God knows I loved you so
There's nothing left

Here take it all, I'm so disgusted I can't take no more
Keep it all - good fucking riddance
I hate myself just fine alone
I know how to hold my own
I gave you my all

So keep your misery and well-put sympathies
I am not your alibi (I am nit the one)
God knows I loved you so
There's nothing left

With everything you said
Every time you lied
Every single step
I knew you'd come around and show me who you are
Leave me with the scars
I've been waiting for you

With every single lie
The stains you left behind
I'll never close my eyes again

You're nothing
I am not your alibi
God knows I loved you so
There's nothing...
13. The Guilt Trip (10:17)
[Music: J Bjorler, A Bjorler / Lyrics: Dolving]

[bonus track]

Crawl inside it
Become the sickness
Drink it
Elevate the threshold
Destroy the mind

And you suffocated
You learn to hate (yourself)
And take one the blame
As it burns

(sweeping the ghosts away)
(but they keep coming back)
And it burns
(the sky is turning red)
It burns

We're right at the end
And it's all dead quiet at the centre of the pain

Tighten the noose
Ascend the scaffold
And give in
Assume the position
Bow down your head

A ritual to purify
Undo what is, absolve
Everlasting the torture

And it's all dead quiet at the centre of the pain
