Beyond the Veil Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Schizophrenia
1. The Veil of Sanity (Intro) (1:50)
2. In His Grip (6:51)
Trapped and concealed in this dark room
Hungry and cold I vegetate
Fettered and gagged
Expecting the worst
Not the slightest chance to escape...
Out of here!
Will I die? In his grip
Helpless I wait for what's to come
At the edge of my common sense
Will I survive or be dead soon?
Oh God! My fate lies in his hands...
As I look into his eyes I see nothing else
Than hate and uncontrolled despite
Against the human race?
What is he able to do?
Will my worst nightmares come true?
I'm sure his hands have many times
Committed homicide
He's sick, his mind's a labyrinth
Which horrors may it hide?
What is he craving for?
Am I the prey for a feast of gore?
Is this the end? Is there no way out?
I'm lost in this place, there is no doubt
In his grip
I hear his steps
He's approaching, my end is drawing nearer
No chance to hide
No imploring and no woeful cries
He gently starts to work
As the blood flows
my senses slowly fade
Finally this is the end
After all I'm now about to
...die...
3. Abysmal Malevolence (4:05)
The mind is enslaved by a cruel morbidity
Hidden in the chasms of the soul
Beyond the guise of superficial benevolence
Rages a fire, delirious and tall
Resist this urge! Suppress it!
Resist this urge! Control it!
If the mind is too weak it will get the upper hand
You'll change to a puppet without a will
Abysmal malevolence takes command
If this morbidity rules your mind
You'll act without restraint
Oblivious to humanity
Abysmal malevolence has gained
Kill! Slay! Rape! No restraint
Haunt the weak! Now deranged
Torment! Scare! Persecute! No remorse
Hands turned into fatal claws
If the mind is too weak it will get the upper hand
You'll change to a puppet without will
Abysmal malevolence takes command
If this morbidity rules your mind
You're just a servant of death
Complete loss of emotions
Abysmal malevolence- only wrath
Malignancy and malevolence
Dark shadows in the lords creation
Rabies of the human race
The archfiend's seed, our extirpation
If the mind is too weak
It will get the upper hand
You'll change to the pupper without will
Abysmal malevolence takes command
If this morbidity rules your mind
You'll act without restraint
Oblivious to humanity
Abysmal malevolence has gained
Kill! Slay! Rape! No restraint
Haunt the weak! Now deranged
Torment! Scare! Persecute! No remorse
Hands turned into fatal claws
4. Mortal at Last (3:40)
Born alive
Torn from the guarding womb
Bare and weak into this frozen existence
Forced to go
To an ubiquitous tomb
On the path through this frozen existence
Day by day the must to strive
For ba**l aims in a ba**l life
Forget to live just for the show
But why to choose this path to go?
In the end it's so equal
What you've done in the past
Won't you realize
That you're just mortal at last?
On and on, no try to change
The realization seems so strange
That once there's no difference
When everything is to cast
Can't you realize
That you're just mortal at last?
Mortal at last
5. Resort to Mortality (11:14)
Once pleased with this life
encouraged by my dreams
But now I just vegetate, life's not as it once seems
The perception of truth is hard to endure
What formerly made a sense
Now just meaningless and obscure
Confused in this being
There's nothing left to believe
No more for me to await
No good perspective, I conceive
I've lost all the dreams which gave life a worth
Where is the truth I believed in since birth?
Just the realization that I trusted a lie
Why to live? I'd rather die!
Existing surrounded by mendacious creations
I am weary of it!
They scorn me, I'm just a "pessimistic crank"
But sorry, I'm not able to ignore and forget
I'm seeking for these problems
Which I never could solve on my own
I'm dreaming away the real existing world
So I'm unfitted for life
Voluntary death I now spawn
...my death... ...I'll arrive soon...
Just a mental void forfeit life's essence
All I wish now is soon to come to an end
No more aims to strive for
No strength to continue
Deep in me my death has already come true
("The farewell letter")
I'm finished with reality
It's too long since I've turned away
Now retreated in a world of dreams
Where's neither doubt nor dismay
I've lost all my fears
To make it come real
Always the redemption in mind
I'm convinced that I can't go astray
The moment draws near for me to surrender
I'm prepared to decease
So I'm ready to enter my last resort...
6. Genocidal Confessions (5:53)
("Confession of the believer:")
"God! I confine to you
I am proud to be part of your horde
Lord! I obey your word
Always obedient, acting as you've taught
You...are the almighty!
None...other delights me!
Life means nothing to me
Only your honour counts
Nobody will soil your name
He's destined to death if he's to blame
Father! I'll stake my life
To avenge every infidel offence
My master! They have to die
If they profane what you profess
You...are the almighty!
None...other delights me!
Life means nothing to me
Only your honour counts
Nobody will soil your name
He's destined to death if he's to blame
March into holy war
Religious murder, justified
Those who offend your holy word
No longer will, they surely die
Die!"

Confessional caused senseless genocide
Religious persecution of the weak
Vile denial of dissenting races
Leads you to slaughter in your "justified" chase
Unrestricted dominion is for what you seek
Vile denial of dissenting races
Leads you to slaughter in your "justified" chase
You believe in lies!
7. Apathetic (5:36)
Born into a nightmare
Psychotic fear, lost in this place
Retreat in isolation
The only way to flee
From this being's disgrace
This life's a real horror
There's no protection as in the womb
Security is hard to find
It's just a path which leads
From the womb to the tomb
Yearning for peace day by day
Hiding in dreams, it's the only way
Won't you live?
You close your eyes to the better things in life
Are you blind?
Can't you see that you only have to strive?
Don't conceal
You have to dare, so one day you can win
Open your eyes
To waste this life in sorrow is a sin
Won't you dare a try?
8. Depressions (6:55)
Empty mind I'm in a dead end
Solitude- is now all lost?
Left here alone to find my way
My present life- an only frost
What's the sense for my existence?
I've got to know my destiny
Which is the way I have to go?
Where's the right place for me to be?
I fear the future
More disillusions
Is suicide my only chance?
I've lost the strength to face reality
My "precious" life has lost its sense
In my head everything is spinning
Pictures of lost days rush past
I can't take a clear decision
'cause my next choice may be my last
Now I sit here, alone with myself
And can't find a reason to carry on
I utter my silent cry for help
Which noone perceives because there is none
Forlorn in emotions,
Confused and despaired
No joy of this being, my life beneath
I've gotta make my decision alone with myself
To continue with life or to cease it...
With death!
With death!
9. A Vortex of Thoughts (1:16)
10. Beyond the Veil (6:06)
Play the perfect mind for your surroundings
Forced by your vanity
For correct prestige you seek
You wear an intact mask
Your outward appearance
But in your inner self
You're just anxious and weak
Hiding from the fears of your subconcious
Which haunt you in your dreams
You suffer while you sleep
Your mental misery
Has to stay in concealment
So you're talking stupid lies
You're also wanted to believe
Suffer in your mind blinded by a false truth
Cheating yourself out of life
By living concealed behind a mask
Discouraged by your fears
Afraid to show the cloven hoof
Escape your pseudo-truth and realize
You're just human at last
...human...
You're hiding behind
A veil of displayed sanity
Beyond the veil
Beyond the veil
Beyond the veil
Beyond the veil
