The Crusade Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Up The Irons
1. Ignition (3:54)
Raise the guns
At every self-made suspicion
Build the bombs
Corrupt policy's decision
Thats the sound
Of Intergity breaking its back
In a country founded as a thievry act

Raise the guns
At every self-made suspicion
Build the bombs
Corrupt policy's decision
Times are dark with our children spoon-fed ignorance
Inheriteance of an anxious trigger finger

Raise the guns
At every self-made suspicion
Build the bombs
Corrupt policy's decision
Our Leaders Preach if we disagree
We're the traitors of society
Homophobia
Racism
Sexism
Our Systems breed supremacy

Ignition
Inception
Burning is a fuse to destruction
Break the walls of ignorance
To disarm the world for its last chance x2

Time again for war
On an enemy that isn't real
Greedy selfish warlords
Feed the agenda, death's the meal

Thats the sound
Impending fever crawling up your spine
In a country
Where nothing is truly made clear

Raise the guns
At every self-made suspicion
Build the bombs
Corrupt policy's decision
Our Leaders Preach if we disagree
We're the traitors of society
Homophobia
Racism
Sexism
Our Systems breed supremacy

Ignition
Inception
Burning is a fuse to destruction
Break the walls of ignorance
To disarm the world for its last chance

Ignition
Inception
Burning is a fuse to destruction
Break the walls of ignorance
To disarm the world for its last chance
2. Detonation (4:30)
Thats the sound of humanity melting away
Say goodbye it's the end of days
Fire rains down on the American dream
Watch all you love seethe and scream

Each will dig their own graves
And bury themselves in life's failures
It's our bombs we've masterminded lighting the skies
Hideous misfires many die
Those who survive soon will suffocate
By the poisons we create
Each will dig their own graves
And bury themselves in life's failures

De-to-na-tion
De-to-na-tion

When civilization crumbles man will turn
On one another killing true

The darkest of times will then come to be
Through our selfish killer instincts
And now the ground we called our home
Is but a barren wasteland
The only sound drowning your cries
Is the detonation

It seems we're running out of time
All good as dead just stand in line x2

And now the ground we called our home
Is but a barren wasteland
The only sound drowning your cries
Is the detonation
3. Entrance of the Conflagration (4:34)
A common woman
Lives by the bible
Wed-locked a prison
Of antiquation
Brings life to the earth
While losing her mind
Trying suicide
Hallucinating Satan

Forcing her own blood down
Beneath the water to drown
Lying dead with eyes wide open

Spiraling downward
Refusing all help
Self-mutilation
Neglects the children
Dagger licks her neck
Desiring escape
Succumbing Satan
Robbed by the seventh deadly sin

Forcing her own blood down
Beneath the water to drown
Lying dead with eyes wide open
Believing Satan was inside
Ordering to abide
To destroy her cursed children

Entrance of the conflagration x2

GO!

Conditions worsen
Searching for answers
In holy scriptures
Systematic plan
Water fills the tub
All of her children
Floating lifelessly
Innocence chased down and Drown

Forcing her own blood down
Beneath the waters to drown
Lying dead with eyes wide open
Believing Satan was inside
Ordering to abide
To destroy her cursed children
4. Anthem (We are the Fire) (4:03)
Just when they thought you were through
You've burned their lies, now you're strengthened it's true
Turn your backs on your enemies
And let those mother-fuckers rot in their jealousy

They
Can't stand
That the worlds up for taking and we are adamant
Hell bent
Determined to dominate everything

We are the fire
We are the fire
Resound the anthem

The music connects, unites us more
Our masses strengthened, an unstoppable horde
We're all now a family
Together let's show the world what we say

They
Can't stand
That the worlds up for taking and we are adamant
Hell bent
Determined to dominate everything

Turn your backs on your enemies
And let those mother-fuckers rot in their jealousy
We're all now a family
Together let's show the world what we say

We are the fire
We are the fire
Resound the anthem
we are the fire
we are the fire
Resound the anthem
we are the fire
FIRE!

wooo-oohh wooo-oohh wooo-oohh wooo-oohh wooo-oohh wooo-oohh wooo-oohh wooo-oohh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeeeeeeeeeeeeah

we are the fire
we are the fire
Resound the anthem
we are the fire
we are the fire
Resound the anthem
we are the fire
we are the fire
Resound the anthem
we are the fire
we are the fire
Resound the anthem
we are the fire
5. Unrepentant (4:51)
A poor man
With four daughters
A wife and a son

Daughter commits adultery
Or so he was told
Bought a knife and machete
After Friday's prayers
Fear the young would follow old
Thought all must be killed

For your honor
You will slaughter
Every one of your daughters

For your honor
You will slaughter
It's you who should be slaughtered

Terror grips the steel with hunger
thirsting to avenge it's soiled pride
Ashamed mad man

You take their lives away as they sleep
The blade kisses at their throats
Love bleeds without a chance to weep
You take, you take their lives away

You're the man unrepentant
Don't you realize
You murdered your own children
Call that honorable cause?

For your honor
You will slaughter
Every one of your daughters

For your honor
You will slaughter
It's you who should be slaughtered

Terror grips the steel with hunger
thirsting to avenge its soiled pride
Ashamed mad man

You take their lives away as they sleep
The blade kisses at their throats
Love bleeds without a chance to weep
You take, you take their lives away

For your honor
You will slaughter
Every one of your daughters

For your honor
You will slaughter
It's you who should be slaughtered

Terror grips the steel with hunger
thirsting to avenge its soiled pride
Ashamed mad man

You take their lives away as they sleep
The blade kisses at their throats
Love bleeds without a chance to weep
You take, you take their lives away
6. And Sadness Will Sear (3:34)
Shepherd is chased by the wolves
Wolves who live by intolerance and hate
For what they couldnt understand
Blinded and vicious are the beasts
beating and ripping at a beautiful human
Who did nothing more than be himself

Tied to the fence as they break you
And sadness will sear
Cold is the wind that will freeze you
And Sadness will sear

Scarecrow is left crucified
Left freezing, bleeding, tired of wondering why
The wolves just couldn't understand
It's the preachers and the teachers
Government's close-minded creatures
Trying to teach us to hate
That which is different

Tied to the fence as they break you
And sadness will sear
Cold is the wind that will freeze you
And Sadness will sear

It's 12:53 AM, October 12th
When the scarecrow died
A victim of society's cruelty

It's 12:53 AM, October 12th
When the shepherd died
The candle's light will alight your departure

Tied to the fence as they break you
And sadness will sear
Cold is the wind that will freeze you
And Sadness will sear

Tied to the fence as they break you
And sadness will sear
Cold is the wind that will freeze you
And Sadness will sear
7. Becoming the Dragon (4:43)
Swimming the river ascending
Free of fear, filled with purpose
Nishikigoi fights through oceans of adversity
Against the current to obtain the highest goals

Swim through oceans of suffering
Climb to the falls of Dragon Gate
Become
Transform from Koi into a beast
Dragon

A living symbol of courage
No wave will shatter these scales
Dreams of three eagle claws and the paws of a tiger
Waterfall's up ahead, one thing left to do

Swim through oceans of suffering
Climb to the falls of Dragon Gate
Become
Transform from Koi into a beast
Dragon

You'll never stop the becoming, yeah
This dragon will rise and be king

All bear witness to a great form
Evolution is complete
A breath that turns into clouds producing rain or fire
Watch the world move according to each desire

Swim through oceans of suffering x2
Climb to the falls of Dragon Gate
Become
Transform from Koi into a beast
Dragon
8. To The Rats (3:42)
You hide behind barricades,
Built of facades, you think you're safe

But someday we all will find you,
Come to where you work,
And fucking tie you.

Every lie
Shoved back
Down your throat
By our hands

A skull fuck
For every word
Just try to breathe
Don't fuck with this

Break every bone in your face
If you mess with my life
I'll mess with your blood
And bury you in a coffin made of your
A coffin made of your deceptions

Obsess as each second fades
In denial of your mind made
Still your jealousy precedes you
You're really in love
With all that I do

Every lie
Shoved back
Down your throat
By our hands

A skull fuck
For every word
Just try to breathe
Don't fuck with this

Break every bone in your face
If you mess with my life
I'll mess with your blood
And bury you in a coffin made of your
A coffin made of your deceptions

This is to the rats
This is to the rats

This is to the rats
This is to the rats

And your conscience
Still tears at you
You secretly
Want to be just like me

A skull fuck
For every word
Just try to breathe
Don't fuck with this

Break every bone in your face
If you mess with my life
I'll mess with your blood
And bury you in a coffin made of your
A coffin made of your deceptions

Break every bone in your face
If you mess with my life
I'll mess with your blood
And bury you in a coffin made of your
A coffin made of your deceptions
9. This World Can't Tear Us Apart (3:30)
I was so empty
Self loathing
Before you awoke me
Lived in transgression
Feasted sin
Destroying all I stood for

A world of spreading disease
Legs up for infidelity
The force feed of their stiffened sickness
The promised hiding their rings
To suck down some of the things
That cheat this world into lovelessness

All the pain in this world won't stop us now
For we have each other
All the hate in this world can't tear us apart
This love is forever

In arms we'll turn away
From their ways
We'll live like no other
Together we're hope
Absolute
The only thing that matters

A world of spreading disease
Legs up for infidelity
The force feed of their stiffened sickness
The promised hiding their rings
To suck down some of the things
That cheat this world into lovelessness

All the pain in this world won't stop us now
For we have each other
All the hate in this world can't tear us apart
This love is forever

All the pain in this world won't stop us now
All the hate in this world can't tear us apart

All the pain in this world won't stop us now
For we have each other
All the hate in this world can't tear us apart
This love is forever
10. Tread the Floods (3:33)
Stress
Breaking my back
Forces start a raid
rapture
Mental attack
My thoughts clattering

Beating this dead horse is exhausting
heartbreaking to see my hands shaking
I'm knee-deep in the depths still wading
Still wading in this
this well called life

Numbness halting all will
Forcing apathy
Anxiety
an aching chill
Hammering down me

Beating this dead horse is exhausting
heartbreaking to see my hands shaking
I'm knee-deep in the depths still wading
Still wading in this
this well called life

Tread the floods
So you can hope to seize
Your own reality
before it escapes thee
Watch yourself drown in disarray
It's time to break away
Or all we'll die today

Stress
Breaking my back
Forces start a raid
rapture
Mental attack
My thoughts clattering

Numbness halting all will
Forcing apathy
Anxiety
an aching chill
Hammering down me

Beating this dead horse is exhausting
heartbreaking to see my hands shaking
I'm knee-deep in the depths still wading
Still wading in this
this well called life

Tread the floods
So you can hope to seize
Your own reality
before it escapes thee
Watch yourself drown in disarray
It's time to break away
Or all we'll die today
11. Contempt Breeds Contamination (4:28)
Mistaken Identity
You really got this one wrong
Racially singled out
He must have a gun
And yet
You get
Off with
No time

How can this be the answer?
No crime yet they shot away
He now lies dead
The blood is on your hands
Hands which were supposed to protect
People like the man you blew away
This isn't justice, this is corruption

(Chorus)
The four protectors fired fourty one shots
Hitting him nineteen times
Searching the body there were no weapons found
He lies with all who died in vain

Murder must still be a crime
When our inherent freedom
Is hatefully gunned down
By who we trust

And yet
You get
Off with
No time

How can this be the answer?
No crime yet they shot away
He now lies dead
Blood is on your hands
Hands which were supposed to protect
People like the man you blew away
This isn't justice, this is corruption

(Chorus)
The four protectors fired fourty one shots
Hitting him nineteen times
Searching the body there were no weapons found
He lies with all who died in vain

Contempt breeds contamination
Contempt breeds contamination
Contempt breeds contamination

How can this be the answer?
No crime yet they shot away
He now lies dead
Blood is on your hands
Hands which were supposed to protect
People like the man you blew away
This isn't justice, this is corruption

(Chorus)
The four protectors fired fourty one shots
Hitting him nineteen times
Searching the body there were no weapons found
He lies with all who died in vain

Contempt breeds contamination
Contempt breeds contamination
Contempt breeds contamination
12. The Rising (3:45)
And the earth begins to shake
A cacophony of roaring
Anxiety growing
Cheers to leaving this mortal life behind
Sweat begins its downpour
A riot we stand for
The blackout foreshadows the chaos

So raise your voices with me
And sing this song of unity
So raise your hands up with me
And hold this moment eternally

Like a rift opened in the sky
Through fire, pulses and lightning
While thunderous sounds ring
Chanting hymns to leave life's troubles behind
This time shared together
Is just so much better
Than life could ever offer

So raise your voices with me
And sing this song of unity
So raise your hands up with me
And hold this moment enternally

So raise your voices with me
And sing this song of unity
So raise your hands up with me
And hold this moment enternally
