The Armageddon Theories Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level James Joyce
1. Dehumanized (5:11)
Hunted down by believers of the cross
They say I have the devil in me
Forced to confess under torture
They strap me tight to a steel bed

Nausea, cannot move nor speak
The chanting seems so unreal
My reminder is the cold bed of steel

They ignore my mournful cries, believe them all to be lies
Tainted words that should go unheard
My thoughts are potential danger, my opinions infectious
Like the plague, the infectious plague

Dehumanized, demonized

Ungodly deed this exorcism
Demonizing the falsely accused
The chanting and the torment
Force me now beyond my right mind
I leave my common sense far behind

Dehumanized, falsely accused, degraded yet innocent
Marked forever by this humiliating act
Dehumanized, dignity dead, I'm becoming what they want me to be
Maybe it is better to reign in hell than to serve in heaven

No longer considered human by them, hell I know I've gone beyond myself
Their chanting words cause my ears to bleed
They gave me hell, I've become hell

Awaits me, I'll leave this world
Schizophrenic tendencies
Alienated, don't know myself
Only pain stays the same
The bliss in the darkness is calling my name

Exorcising what has become a part of me
They opened hell inside of me
2. The Visionaire (Angelic Possession) (4:37)
Becoming painfully aware of the fact, alive mankind does more harm than good
Pierced by this knowledge of god I'm becoming an angel of extermination

Not guilty of my acts anymore, possessed
My body totally controlled by the pure unquestionable essence of god
Must cleanse this world of disease, mankind
I mourn the lives I take but it's not my choice nor will

I bring salvation shaped as steel, sharp enough to rid you of your sins
Feel my prayer sink deep into your flesh, feel the divinity of the blade
Feel...

Behold the programmed will to live, printed in your genes
Alive you do more harm than good
Embrace my mercy killing, adrenaline blinding my mind
Struck by the rush and every last trace of emotion gone numb, as I lay you to rest

My god is burning behind my very eyes
Penetrated my chosen mind with force
Chanting the gift of life has been withdrawn
Commanding me to kill and erase the mistake, erase...

Spawned from the visionaire, a fire burning out of hand
Mankind a vision that should not be
Extinction, my purpose clear in life with god inside my mind
I embrace my fate and every last trace of emotion gone numb, as I lay you
to...
Rest.
3. Phase I: Prophecies (0:39)
4. Phase II: Carnage Earth (4:46)
Finally the world submits to war, choking the entire earth
Unleashed by difference of religion and lack of natural assets
Crushing civilization's solid core
This world once strived to be unified, now each nation stands for itself

Oblivious to the former sympathy, all that remains is to crush the enemy

Any warning at this stage would be mocked, enemy fixation
Instincts of survival feeds the war, logic is drowned
This is a battle none will survive

Crushing as mother machinery charges forth
Advancing technology brought forth in weaponry
New inventions with extended capacities, created with good intentions
Turned into potential destroyers of the world

We rule a world that bleeds

Logic drowning, enemy fixation overflowing
And in the end no one can save us from ourselves

Blinded eyes suddenly realize that our time is done, sense imminent demise
The carnage halts, regret comes to late - mankind has sealed its fate
Carnage chokes the world
Withering, withering of the will to live, climax of the carnage ends
When hope is lost
The withering, our bleeding earth we will rule no more

Too late we face the fact, all options are gone
We have brought the end of our era upon ourselves
We leave the earth to heal itself
Fade, leave for something else

Hear the dying, afraid to take the consequences
But in the end nothing can save us from ourselves

Too late we face the fact, all options are gone
5. Phase III: Departure (6:09)
For centuries we've ruled this bleeding earth, dethronement is about to occur
Collapse of mankind all knew it would come, yet still the race is shocked at the confrontation

Years of progress reduced to nothing, the price is high for our demise
No one will remain to remember, we take it all with us to our graves
So much work left unfinished, nothing will be left behind
No one will remain to remember, as history demands our death

Guilty or not your final day has dawned, ready or not suffer the apocalypse
End of the world as we - the dying - know it, ready or not departure is at hand

Departure occurs, vanishment of all our knowledge
Departure occurs, all our efforts turned to dust

And when our bodies return the energy to earth
Something new will take our place, a new reality will rise

Departure occurs, vanishment of all our knowledge
Departure occurs, all our efforts turned to dust

Individual:
"Mortified I confront the end, all I ever hoped for has met its end too soon
My days were numbered, but this is wrong
All my dreams, all my hopes cast into nothingness
Cast in stone that's what I thought, now I sense imminent demise of our race
And as I die nothing will remain, nothing is what I'll leave behind"

Departure, ready or not departure is at hand
Departure, ready or not departure is at hand

Million by million human species expires
Energy of the bodies return to earth, preparing for the world's re-birth
Million by million we're wiped off the face of the earth

A temporary hell on earth, disasters overflow
As nature rebels against us all, a chaos self-inflicted
Finally, the earth begins to heal, when no flesh has been spared
The powers of creation prepare for the world's re-birth

Whisper:
A temporary hell on earth, disasters overflow
As nature rebels against us all, a chaos self-inflicted
6. Phase IV: Embryo (6:56)
Time exists although its keeper's gone, unmeasured it marches on and on

Waiting, re-creating, developing, preparing

Endless is the entity of time
The collective mind of creation plans the rise of a new breed

Forming, creating, developing, preparing

The rise of a new order, the rise of a new breed

Where mankind fell prey to god-belief in a corrupted form
This new embryo must never know such a thing exists
The failure of humanity should never have been

In the history of existence, new life has seen the light of day
Yesterday fades, the past shunned to oblivion
Bury what was an look ahead with new eyes
The formative years pass like a second
The embryo develops to fully progressed breed
A new order has bloomed to life
From instinct to structured thought

The breed breeds and increases in numbers, re-building what once was

Breeding, increasing, unknowing, restoring

They develop faster than their predecessors, granted superiority

To remain where we departed, to succeed where we failed
The embryo was created to accomplish this dream

From instinct to structured thought
Third eye functions are alert
Through those they communicate
This breed has a wider spectrum
Of emotions and mind-based functions
New empires are raised on earth
The new age is complete at last

Powered through the third eye they sense the past
the soil of the earth shall be explored in the name of science

To remain where we departed, to succeed where we failed
The embryo was created to accomplish this dream

The soil of the earth is searched for items of the predecessors
7. Phase V: Posthuman Era (5:28)
Now they know that we once did exist, the answer's there in the ground
Fossils and preserved scriptures has been found

One scripture intact, it has survived the holocaust
It has stayed intact through the end of all
Again observed by mesmerised eyes
This old book of tales should have remained underground

The worst of diseases from the era of mankind
Is now read by the spawn of the embryo
Weaker minds they fall into submission
Being convinced they've found the truth of life
The worst of diseases from the era of mankind
Now read by the spawn of the embryo

The powers of creation in distress
Disturbed in their plans
As born-again believers submit
To a born-again religion

Claiming to possess the truth, difference of belief breeds hate
As first blood is drawn history repeats itself
As first blood is drawn history repeats itself
Claiming to possess the truth, difference of belief breeds hate
8. Embodied For War (4:10)
Not of this earth, I'm granted flesh and I'm embodied 1889
This time I look human but what I really am is disguised

Destroying a race regretlessly

I symbolize the infinite while you are symbols for the expendable
I'm the kind of being that lives to destroy and to destroy only

You'll never glimpse, you'll never grasp the visions I see
A brand new reality
From virus to human, embodied for war
This vengeance is mine, to rid the world of the swine

Returning again and again, I come in different shapes and forms
Disaster, disease I've been it all, now I'm a plague in human form

terror distorts their faces when they catch the inhuman glance in my eyes
When they see the pure hatred inside, in my eyes world wars arise

Blessed by destiny I form a new world
With a nation behind me the holocaust is a fact
They worship and fear me, they sense what I am
I lead them and they don't know if victory or loss is at hand

The wounds I inflict on history will remain for all eternity
