Calm Before the Storm Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Sathanas       Last modified by level Besi Karat
1. Black Xmas (2:57)
When the snow turns black
I'll be back - I'll be here
Between the blinking of an eye
When the screams attack
Welcome back - Cavalier
Before the newborn starts to cry

And it's all in the eyes of a child
Flaming star or the call of the
wild

Black Xmas - Devils Eve
The whispers in the breeze
Black Xmas - Devil's wine
The river bleeds in time

Where the red clouds chase
That's the place - In a dream
Across the suns hot blazing sky
Where he hides his face
In disgrace - For his queen
He must choose the way she dies

And they say when his eyes turn
to green
He'll awake living sin never seen

Watches over you
That's the clue - To believe
An instant and you're hypnotised
Watch his eyes look through
False or true - To deceive
You take his place you're
crucified

Black Xmas - Devils Eve
The whispers in the breeze
Black Xmas - Devil's wine
The river bleeds in time
Black Xmas - Devil's wine
Black Xmas
2. The Chanting of the Priests (4:25)
Watch out -
There's a cry from Atlantis
Takes the wind by surprise
Voices so demanding
Thunder swarms the skies
To the north of horizon
Over mountains at east
There's a call to the lost ones
From the elders deceased

We're chanting - They're chanting

It's in a tear - Outside a prayer
Without form it's haunting the air
It's in a kiss - within a bite
It brings the darkness into light

The chanting of the priests
The chanting of the priests

Watch out -
It's a song for Olympus
Cracks the morpheus dream
It oozes the ozone
Heavenly screams
By the golden waterfall
Through the fog on the ice
There's a voice in the shell call
It's demanding precise

We're chanting - They're chanting
The chanting of the priests

Yells ascend into the sleeping
Screech the hawk replies
Shudders pound the marching
hearts
In reborn synchronize
Held in force the feeding prism
Triangle diaboli
Catalogues the souls inside
The city in the sea

Watch Out -
Where there's life without
presence
There's a voice without sound
Deep inside you can't feel it
Yet it's all around
Through the eye of the pharaoh
To the tombs in the sand
There's a force in the distance
Calls you to the sacred land

The chanting of the priests
3. Metal Punk (3:24)
Metal Punk is rising wild
Antenae scouts the way
Ready for the danger
In the game he has to play

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Nowhere to live
No time to die
Metal Punk

Metal Punk - Feel it
Metal Punk - C'mon
Metal Punk - Take it
Metal Punk

Metal Punk dilates the cries
A message all is well
The changes take their place
Amongst the sentinel

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Nowhere to live
No time to die
Metal Punk

Metal Punk - Feel it
Metal Punk - C'mon
Metal Punk - Take it
Metal Punk
Metal Punk

Metal Punk animalize
Metal Punk watch his eyes
Metal make a punk of me
For satanic majesty

Savage mind
Damage child
Boiling high

Metal Punk
4. Under a Spell (4:09)
You know she only plays beneath
the night of day
Weaving her deadly web of lies
to tempt her pray
Her deadly poison rots the reason
in your mind
You contribute towards the future
of her kind

Oh no - Don't you believe her -
Look out

She is the fire - Heavenly hell
You can't resist - Under her spell
So inviting - The angels fell
She lets you in - Under her spell

But you can't see behind the
schemes
You thought you'd fell into a
dream
You should have taken more care
Can't you see your dreams -
They're a nightmare

The angels fell - Heavenly hell -
Under a spell
Caught - Under a spell - Under a
spell

You know she's dangerous
between her smiles and grace
Her charms adventurous with
schizophrenic lies
And then her final trick the noose
that she has tied

Oh no - Don't you believe her -
Look out

She is the fire - Heavenly hell
You can't resist - Under her spell
So inviting - The angels fell
She lets you in - Under her spell

(Repeat Verse 1 & Chorus)

The angels fell - Heavenly hell -
Under a spell
Caught - Under a spell - Under a
spell

You're caught
5. Calm Before the Storm (4:14)
I can smell the fear
Hear the screams of pain
I must kill or be meat
I'll say to you
On this planet of dirt
Number one comes first

This is our place
The last of the human race
Children of disgrace
Now can you all hear me say

There's a calm before the storm
Don't say that you ain't been
warned
A calm before the storm
And it's coming for you

Is there life after death
Do you ask yourself

This is our place
The last of the human race
Children of disgrace
Now can you all hear me say

There's a calm before the storm
Don't say that you ain't been
warned
A calm before the storm
And it's coming for you

I have smelled the fear
Heard the screams of pain

This is our place
The last of the human race
Children of disgrace
Now can you all hear me say

There's a calm before the storm
Don't say that you ain't been
warned
A calm before the storm
And it's coming for you

There's a calm before the storm
6. Fire (2:42)
Take my hand and we'll be one
It's a chance in a million
Don't be scared on our way down
You'll belong to the hellion

Black your tears dry on me
Friend or foe or liar

Fire - In hell fire - Fire

Hear my tale and walk with me
Answer not to oblivion
Ask your stars your destiny
Shining down on Marillion

Red your eyes look for me
Scream the demon's choir

Search your soul for we're the
same
Don't believe you're a warrior
Let me kick your mind insane
Hell's my unholy abattoir

Give your services to me
Burning feeds my buyers

Fire - Fire - Burning in fire - Fire
- Hell fire
7. Krackin' Up (2:15)
You want to be the master blaster
Killing yourself to win
You let your body sweat burn faster
Moulding a God of sin
You've got the madness and the glory
And now your heart's pounding blood
You're living your own story
You know it does you good

Krackin Up - Krackin Up
Krackin Up - Krackin Up

You put yourself through hours of torture
Increasing mindless pain
You soon become a Demon vulture
You're getting greedy for gain

You've got the madness and the glory
Killing yourself to win
You're always living your own story
Moulding a God of sin
You want to be the master blaster
And now your heart's pounding blood
You let your body sweat burn faster
You know it does you good

Krackin Up - Krackin Up
8. Beauty and the Beast (3:49)
He watches witches weaving
wonders
Inside their crystal balls of
thunder
Seeing the future past and present
Of messages the universe sends

They summon through the sphere
A child so fair so virgin pure
They summon me my slave
Bring her to their lure

The beauty and the beast
The beauty and the beast

She calls christ in churches
crimson
But I can see the blood on your
sins
I've got to take her - Leave her -
Take her
Tell me the price if I deliver

They guide me through the lake
By one a slave of flesh
They summon his return
In vain wasting their breath

The beauty and the beast
The beauty and the beast

They cast countless conjurations
He didn't sign the pact the fact is
Their screams of failure fade to
whispers
Trying to heal their mental
blisters

They summon through the sphere
A child so fair so golden pure
They didn't realise
This was the demon's cure

The beauty and the beast
The beauty and the beast
9. Deadline (3:17)
I lust a princess - A crystal queen
Virginal whiteness is all that I
dream
To make a contact - I'm dying to
feel
My magic snow - Show me your
real

Watch out - You there
She makes you feel good
Don't you care
Inside - Can't fight it
You bring your money and be
there
For the deadline now

It's a deadline now
For the midnight frost
It's a deadline now
It's a deadline

Give me an angel - Blow me a
breeze
You walk on silver - Travel the
seas
Hunting a killer - It's a jungle
disease
Watching in marvel you'll steal
her release

Watch out - You there
She makes you feel good
Don't you care
Inside - Can't fight it
You bring your money and be
there
For the deadline now

It's a deadline now
For the midnight frost
It's a deadline now
It's a deadline now

My mind's in torment -
Something's not clear
I take my godess where nobody
hears
She sees right through me - She's
in my mind
Mother of madness - Immortals
blind

Watch out - You there
She makes you feel good
Don't you care
Inside - Can't fight it
You bring your money and be
there
For the deadline now

It's a deadline now
For the midnight frost
It's a deadline now
It's a deadline now
It's a deadline now
It's a deadline now
It's a deadline now
10. Gypsy (2:25)
Gypsy woman calls me
Caution leads the way
Reads from a book of night and
day
Words or endless stories
Crystals in her gaze
Shows me of a place inside a
maze

Cities golden splendor
Only life surrender

Candles all around me
Mountains in the sky
This is the place where life's a lie
Wakes in mortuary
Gasping in the air
Wind breathes words - She's not
there

Deserts vast and barren
Still the witches jargon
Promises of splendor
Just my life surrender

She's a gypsy

Blinding lights flash at me
Wake me from this dream
I can't believe this place is real
Fires in stormy weather
Silver shields the rain
Her grip so tight that my life
drains

Nectar from the serpent
Poison messages sent
Psylocybin splendor
Never life surrender

She's a gypsy
11. Muscle (2:43)
Get this - Hey you girl looking at
me
Stop your staring unless you're
free
I need someone who fits just right
I need to get it on - tonight

Wanna hear it - All I wanna do is
open you up wide
Put some great white muscle - In
between your thighs

Hey you child what's your game
All this is physical no need to
know your name
I need someone who fits just right
I need a woman yeah - tonight

Let me hear it - All I wanna do is
open you up wide -
Put some great white muscle - In
between your -

I need a woman who can last the
night
I need to get it on -
C'mon play with a white man yeah

Get this - Hey you girl looking at
me
Stop your staring unless you're
free
I need someone who fits just right
I need to get it on - tonight

Wanna hear it - All I wanna do is
open you up wide
Put some great white muscle - In
between your thighs
