Holy War Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Absolute Genocide (4:26)
The carbon air is stale
Foul winds swept through the iron trees
As the earth gasps for air
Inhale the exhaust, hollow the pines
We are not predators, we are the suicide

Sheep among the sheep
A world full of fucking cowards overrun with grief
We're all just sheep among the sheep
Staring down the barrel of a gun in disbelief

Eden laid to waste
In the dust and rubble of a tragic race
Scarred upon the lung
Take the gauze to the infected wound
And smother the mouths of the young
Stillborn in a polluted womb

Oh lord of the worm, return us to the soil
Let the boxes of bones decompose
Into the swill, black as oil

Hurling towards the black hole
Twisted by the gravity
Withered by the Sun
Shattered by depravity

Civilized disaster
Polluted by the ignorant
Human scum rotting in shit
Human scum rotting in shit

Sheep among the sheep
A world full of fucking cowards overrun with grief
We're all just sheep among the sheep
Staring down the barrel of a gun in disbelief

Immoral monarch eyes as mirrors
The mask of refuge will deterioate
Empires built on reckless consumption
Now gaze upon the cancerous face

Oh lord of the worm, return us to the soil
Let the boxes of bones decompose
Into the swill, black as oil

Humanity shall suffer it's absolute genocide
We are nothing more than a casualty of a failed
Existence
2. Light Bearer (3:56)
Serpent upon the cross,
faith swept into blackness,
so shall there be restitution,
in the slaughter of the masses...

Rise oh great deceiver,
return to the gardens alas,
as it was so it shall be again,
enthroned in mirrored halls,
the day of the false prophet has come to pass...

There'll be a cleansing of the saints,
towards the left hand path desperate they crawl,
all are guilty of their own demise,
the burden of lies will swallow them all,

bring me the eyes of the father,
spill their wrists recite their vows,
lay the lamb of christ upon his altar,
slice vengeance in the neck of the sow,

demons of doctrine,
creatures of the cold,
forged preachers of hatred,
outdated gospel to the world of old...

Serpent upon the cross,
faith swept into blackness,
so shall there be restitution,
in the slaughter of the masses,

scholars shield their fate,
a void within the walls of sanctuaries,
fraudulent labor ripened with temptation and indulgence,
for the true author of the soul to savor,

as they gather in masses upon the hills beyond the sands,
rejoice the morning star rises in the east,
the word of god departs from man,
and as the centuries seam together,
shall we open our hearts to truth,
man is one with the fire in the center of the earth,
Lucifer bring us rebirth...

Lucifer...
Light bearer...
Bring us rebirth..

Rejoice
The day of satan and man is upon us!
3. Holy War (4:00)
Die for Christ
Die for Allah
Die for Jerusalem
Die for Torah
Father and son marching in rhythm
Firing bullets through the skulls of the children
Holy war
Mortars and martyrs
Holy war
Unholy followers
Holy war
Brainwashed with death
Holy war
Unholy mess
I reject the laws of the misguided
False prophets imprison nations fueling self annihilation
I reject pocket lined political demons
Who arm the ignorant for election season
Empires buried in sand a history of the failures in man
Armies of guardians
Servants of bibles
Reciting verses as they stand before rifles
Millions of lives erased
Hatred marked as madness
Violence in leaves of scripture
A world aflame with malice
We will all die for nothing
There is silence in the house of God
There is only the cry of hell
4. Coffin Dragger (2:56)
All is lost
The sky is void
All that would exist
In time is destroyed

Alight the funeral pyre
Dredge up the tombs, set the souls afire
Homage to the playground of the dead
Churning in agony under the land we tread
We await the departure
Between the flesh and soul, to worlds below

The sky is void
All that would exist
In time is destroyed
Evolve and perish
The great reset
Eradication is true progress

Signals in the distance
Dying with the faintest glow
Instincts of nature
Swallowed by the undertow
Black tides engulf the districts with salt and sand
Shrouded in blackness, entomb the land

Coffin Dragger
Inhale the earth

Reap songs of man
Born in ancestral suffering
The departure is imminent
The coming of end times is swift and unyielding
Spiralling forever
Return to the locusts
Return to the ether

All is lost
All is always lost
The sky is void
All that would exist
In time is destroyed
Evolve and perish
The great reset
Eradication is true progress
5. Fur and Claw (4:17)
Human parasite burn in the body bag
Stuff the sacs with disease and filth
Homicide to purify a world of wither and wilt
We are the human parasite
Slaves with no masters
Human parasite
Global infliction, global disaster

The ravens turn their eyes from the land
And take flight towards the sea
Where they finally collapse in exhaustion
And sink to the abyss and algae

And the slugs burrow into the soil
Channeling through timber and vine
Where they finally wain and wither
Beneath weeping pines

And the wolves lead the flocks to the hilltops
Where they hurl unto plains below
Twisted and broken by rock
They sink to the catacombs

Oh wrath of man
Fur and Claw now flee the land
Blind to the failures of the flesh
Nothing to return, nothing is left

Human Parasite (2x)

Conscience settles into comfort
Still bound by tragedy
To an earth that heaves with ruin
Contempt in suffering
Look now upon your brother
The vessel of foul will
You will see the face of another
Complacent with the blood that spills
Servants with no masters
Masters with no soul
Man is a plague swallowing all he beholds

Oh wrath of man
Fur and Claw now flee the land
Burn in the body bag human parasite
Burn in the body bag human parasite
6. Deliver Us to Evil (3:07)
Deliver Us to Evil
Tear the blackened hearts from the populace
Deliver Us to Evil
Eradicate the corrupt with prejudice
Drag them from their mansions
Take them from their hollow possessions
And have them stare in the faces of the hungry
As they burn for their transgressions

Shallow graves stuffed with gold
Governments bought and sold
Palaces in deserts overlooking the slums
Starving and famished, the poor are the forgotten
Ones
Modern slavery the scales are tipped
Poverty and ruin in a game that's fixed

Deliver Us to Evil
Tear the blackened hearts from the populace
Deliver Us to Evil
Eradicate the corrupt with prejudice
Drag them from their mansions
Take them from their hollow possessions
And have them stare in the faces of the hungry
As they burn for their transgressions

The rich get richer
The poor get poorer
The hands of greed
Lead the lambs to the slaughter

Bow to your empty god (2x)

Shallow graves stuffed with gold
Governments bought and sold

Deliver Us to Evil (2x)
7. Emptiness (4:03)
Born only of despair
Hope crumbles under the horrors we bear
Death into life, the flask of our idols
Spills poisonous smite upon their arrival
A river of ice meets a mountain of fire
All hope torn asunder by human desire

Under a serpent's tongue the fruit of life
Heaven and Hell cast from the flame and the flies
Back to the soil, our ties
To the planet severed by knife
Severed by knife

We'll cry of the cancer
And we'll fail for the cure
Let the sorrow consume us
The burden's impure

We'll cry of the cancer
And we'll fail for the cure
Let the sorrow consume us
The burden's impure

Sick from the filth spew forth black blood
Unchain the machines that hold of the flood
I see no hope, i don't feel the fear
We don't have to stay here
We don't have to stay here

A river of ice meets a mountain of fire
All hope torn asunder by human desire

Emptiness
Godless gluttons
Emptiness
I give you
Emptiness
Godless gluttons
Emptiness

We'll cry of the cancer
And we'll fail for the cure
Let the sorrow consume us
The burden's impure

We'll cry of the cancer
And we'll fail for the cure
Let the sorrow consume us
The burden's impure

Flesh to the dirt
Necks to the stone
Scorching the soul
Hollowing bones

Flesh to the dirt
Necks to the stone
Scorching the soul
Hollowing bones

Don't bring me back from the dead (2x)
8. Violent Reckoning (2:55)
Free thought is a lie
And our leaders have failed us
Our freedoms will die
With the kings who betray us

Fabricated wars
Gather the soldiers and grind their bones
Coffins collected in shipping containers
Sent back to their loved ones at home

Fabricated fear keep the countries sedated
The end times are near in the Hell we've created
Grand manipulation
From the parliaments to the TV screen
Waves of misinformation
Flood the gears of the corrupted media machine

Free thought is a lie
And our leaders have failed us
Our freedoms will die
With the kings who betray us

Kill the masters
Murder the kings
Bloodletting
Violent Reckoning
Violent Reckoning

The blind lead the blind
Authors of the false testaments
Imprisoning minds
The apostles of pestilence

Grand manipulation
From the parliaments to the TV screen
Waves of misinformation
Flood the gears of the corrupted media machine

Free thought is a lie
And our leaders have failed us
Our freedoms will die
With the kings who betray us

Violent Reckoning

Kill the masters
Murder the kings
Violent Reckoning
Our leaders have failed us
9. Child of Sorrow (3:34)
Child of Sorrow
Born in Hell
Birthed in blood
Child of Sorrow
Innocence undone

Peasants turn the plow to man
Visions of Heaven bring Hell to the land

Ritualistic execution of the masses
Like lambs to the slaughter
Poisoned vision, the venom it pierces
The hearts of the holy order
Ash in their throats
The word of the lord
Sewn with the seeds of destruction

Peasants turn the plow to man
Visions of Heaven bring Hell to the land

Child of Sorrow
Born in Hell
Birthed in blood
Child of Sorrow
Innocence undone

Blasphemous cross
Blasphemous cross sewn with the bones
The remmants of life torn off by the wolves
Blasphemous cross

A nation carved out by the blade of the vile
How we mourn for the motherless child
Ash in their throats
The word of the lord
Sewn with the seeds of destruction

Peasants turn the plow to man
Visions of Heaven bring Hell to the land

Blasphemous cross

The young will grow with hate in their hearts
Our world will burn forever
10. Naked and Cold (5:31)
What have we done
Destroying every acre of our gift, one by one
Furthest from grace
There is no hand reaching down
It was never there because
A god would never stand
For such a fucking disgrace

Carry the carcasses over the plains to the mountains
Where we try to burn away the pain in a massive grave
The solution is to hide the mistakes
But the problem remains ingrained

Let the necks of the bodies fall
And let our poor mothers cry
Don't mutter any pointless prayers
We don't deserve to repent
We deserve to die alone

The dead cry out, naked and cold
Disconnected from the earth
We all die
We all die alone
Betrayed and broken
Universally flawed
Hopelessly sinking into the frozen thaw

Empty creations rooted out from under our feet
We engorge on our failures, we toast to our defeat
Of all that we've made, we'd throw it all away
Together we decay

Oh humanity what a shameful existence
If the world would stop spinning i don't think i'd miss
It

The dead cry out, naked and cold
Disconnected from the earth
We all die
We all die alone
Betrayed and broken
Universally flawed
Hopelessly sinking into the frozen thaw

Shallow existence
We're only living cause we can't seem to leave

The hunger of power is the demon of man
He awaits in the dark to be fed by our hand
And the souls of our children won't quench the taste
We all will die together with our heads on the plate

Oh humanity what a shameful existence
If the world would stop spinning i don't think i'd miss
It

We don't deserve to be safe, we've earned the flames
Engulf my shell and let the embers sail into space

Let the necks of the bodies fall
And let our poor mothers cry
Don't mutter any pointless prayers
We don't deserve to repent
We deserve to die alone
We all die
We all die alone
