Submitted by level Eagles
1. I Will Come For You (5:47)
[Music and lyrics: De Feis]

Under tortured skies from a land with no sun
I will come for you
From Seven points of Darkness
beyond the mountains and the ruins
I will come for you
Across the Fields of Rage and Yearning
with Power in my hand
I will return, I will return

Once we had beauty our Sun blazcd in passion
We lived alive
Far from the reaching of closed minded preaching
We lived and died

Now all in darkness we wait for the end,
hunted by men of the cloth
Murder and torture, they rape and they slaughter
claiming thr Way of the Cross

Cast out from Eden baptized inta treason
with sighless eyes
lost clouds of reason, false hope burning season
a godless lie

whose god is stronger, who's made by its hand
primitive blood stains the sand
murder and torture they're raping your daughter
drunk with the blood of the lamb

fair child of the desolation cry to me,
under stars that have died
under skies of pain we are born
yea we are born, forever we'll be
oh my love I'll defy death and meet on holy ground

[repeat verse one]
Now like the sun, like the wind and the rain
I'll return like a storm, I will rise once again
'cross the oceans of time I am called by your voice
I'll return, I will return!!
2. Weeping Of The Spirits (5:42)
[Music: De Feis/Pursino, lyrics: De Feis]

In the Valley of Dying Stars
as the Gods dream their angry dreams
Restless Spirits, thoughts arise
from the porcelain shuttered rooms
they shift and glide
The Dawn becomes lighter
for the Weeping of the Spirits Crystallize

Welcome my friend I know your face well
I know the mark that you wear
Your Father's eyes watch from afar
I know the gift that you bear, for we are one

Thunder and Blood rage on the wind
Spirits of Vengeance collide
Brother of mine, Tyrant of air
I see the gift that you bear
For we are one
For we are one

[Chorus:]
Ride like the wind in chains of defiance
I see the scars and the pain
Shatter the ground I stand beforr you
Kill me or die where you stand

Ten thousand sons, scream through the wind
Burning the Angels alive
Shining in chains, Blood stains the air
I know the mark that you wear
For we are one
For we arc one

[Chorus]

Ride like the wind in chains of defiance
I see the scars of the pain
Shatter the ground, the Spirits Alliance
I see the whips and the stain
Ride like the wind in chains of defiance
I see the work of your name
Shatter the ground I stand before you
Kill me or die where you stand
Die where you stand!!!!
3. Blood And Gasoline (5:32)
[Music and lyrics: De Feis]

Another night on the Highway, smell of hate in the air
Another Season of knowing that there's nobody there
so you race down the runway, leaving hope on the rails
with a spike in your memory and the marks of the nails

[Chorus:]
Gold and silver shed a light that's blinding hot and cold
you're bleeding, you're bleeding
red and flowing like a wine for crying young or old
like blood and gasoline

As you rust in the mirror, as your face starts to go
you can count every mile on your barren soul
in the scream of the engine, sing your final song
blackened and burned what was young and strong

[Chorus]

Faster and faster a nightmare we ride
who'll take the reins when the miracle dies
faster and faster till everything dies
killing is our way of keeping alive

Another night on the Highway, Blood and Dust in the air
New disease or addiction that brings that hip Death Stare
In the media madness where they proclaim you a King
First they crown and annoint you
then makc you dance on a string
4. Self Crucifixion (4:03)
[Music and lyrics: De Feis]

I'm not sleepin' the walls are down
and your hands are icy cold
under water thru che sound of fear
comes a drowned and cold reply
and the mist still hangs around the gallows
like the anger after the violent rain

[Chorus:]
Die if you will die if you want to
there's no mistake the ending is clean
the fire is cold in the ashes of memory
there's no escape from this hotel

Like a child who lies to win
then eats of his own flesh
holy water can't save you now
you've hungered far too long
and the words once spoken
now ring hollow as the mind that
shatters your flesh with nails

[Chorus]

I'm not sleepin' I'm alive for you
you, you'll try again save yourself
the dawn takes the night, the night takes the sun
the son takes your sins your sins can be cleansed

[Chorus]

No escape the ending is clean
it doesn't have to be this way
5. Last Supper (6:37)
[Music: De Feis/Pursino, lyrics: De Feis]

Father forgive thcm for they know not what they are doing

Break this bread and drink the wine
just remember with whom you dine
do this in memory of me, when I'm not among you all
Peter you will deny me, Judas you will betray
last supper, it's your last supper

Open wide the Gates to receive me
high above the clouds there is peace
after 3 days I will rise again to teach you all
Mary you'll see me first, you others will fall amazed
last supper, it's your last supper

When the sun no longer turns thr skies are black
darkness like a breathing hand upon your back
they wlll kill the shepherd to divide the sheep
but remember this forever I reign, forever I reign

So damn the dark the light
the tears you cry tonight
damn your love your lies
promises you broke woe
this is your last mistake, it's written in the sand
the law reveals itself, shining like the sun
forever I reign, forever I reign

Supper!!!
break this bread and drink the wine
just remember with whom you dine
will you remember me when I'm not among you now
Peter you still deny me, Judas you will betray
last supper, it's your last supper
it is finished.
6. Warrior's Lament (2:18)
7. Trail Of Tears (6:54)
[Music: De Feis/Pursino, lyrics: De Feis]

Ask and you won't be forgiven
This is a blessing in disguise
All of your choices are spoken
You've killed the child in my eyes
I'm gonna see you burn

When in some dark distant future
you'll meet my presence in a song
You'll punch the walls in frustration
Can you hear my voice and say I'm wrong?
I'm gonna see you burn

With the first light I touch your skin
rise above the challenge, the day begins
and the brightnessss runs to black
fading in the darkness I'm not coming back

Here we live and here now we die
on this mountainside
arms entwined, the chosen the brave
fire wind to take you away like the wrath of God

Ask and you won't be forgiven
This is a blessing in disguise
All of your choices are spoken
You've killed the child in my eyes
I'm gonna see you burn
8. The Raven Song (5:01)
[Music: De Feis/Pursino, lyrics: De Feis]

Soaring high above the desert
far beyond the shifting plains I call your name
With a love that goes beyond love
past the prison of all time In the sky you and I

From the Dawn of all Creation
to the pain of Nevermore
Can you hear me in your slumber
As I Haunt the Nightly shore

Chorus:
Unleash the Raven fly to me
Unleash the Raven fly to me

In the Palace of the Spirits
where the streets are still and strange, I stand alone
13 moons reveal the sadness
where your mortal body drained
In the sky ou and I, we can't die

From the Dawn of all Creation
Calling from the other side
None can ever tear asunder
our love is sanctified

[Chorus]

Fly Phantom of Night, Vulture Divine send me Lenore

From the Dawn of all Creation
Calling from the other side
None can ever tear asunder
our love is sanctified

Unleash the Raven fly to me
Unleash the Raven fly to me
When the Light of Life is over calling from the other side
Unleash the Raven fly to me
Unleash the Raven fly to me
9. Forever Will I Roam (5:21)
[Music and lyrics: De Feis]

Colder now, cold as the grave this town
darkness falls the death of another soul
empty lives the sins of the desperate
shattered dreams a moments betrayal, forever will I roam
forever will I roam

[Chorus:]
Forever will I roam a touch for a moment a scar for life
Silent drifter on a highway side
The heart of an angel, a killer's eyes

Sacrifice, slaughter the love we made
Blood and sand a victim of innocence
Crime of pride, killing emotion
Shroud of Tears inherit the wind, Forever will I roam
Forever will I roam

[Chorus]

Speak to me, who are you anyway ?
Vision of long drawn pain
Calling and pleading
Baring the guilty one again

Colder now, cold as the grave this town
Darkness falls, the eyes of a nameless stranger close

[Chorus]
10. I Wake Up Screaming (4:37)
[Music: De Feis/Pursino, lyrics: De Feis]

Like a portrait born of hate
like a lock without a key
I am trapped here in this prison
deliver me from me
like a world within my head
like a thorn in my side
I am choking on your virtue
what a way to die

And the wind keeps on moaning
shattered lightning from the skies
all your promises are broken
I think you just want to bury me
I wake up screaming every night
I wake up screaming

Like a guardian of lies
bringing laughter in disguise
I am drowning in your bullshit
what a way to die
like a crystal virgin mind
when you blindly lead the blind
I am waiting for my requiem
or the end of time

And the wind keeps on moaning
spitting right into your eyes
every bridge is burned and broken
do you think you want to fuck with me
I wake up screaming every night
I wake up screaming

Ooh what to do now when I see your armour twist and crack
Ooh what to do now when I rip the smile right from your face rip

Like a portrait born of Hate
Like a lock without a key
I am trapped here, in this prison
Deliver me from me

And the wind keeps on moaning
Spitting right into your eyes
All your promises are broken
Do you think you'll stand the test of time

I Wake up Screaming every night
I Wake up Screaming
11. House Of Dust (4:04)
[Music: De Feis/Pursino, lyrics: De Feis]

Cold light descending through curtains of dust
Torn like the memory of what we wert and what became of us
Gone with the Evening when morning stares
Gone and forgotten Iike a photograph
or the fragments of a dream

[Chorus:]
Let me know where to find you
Cive me the chance to find you
I'm Lost on my own in this House of Dust
Heaven will not receive me
Nobody will believe me
I'm Lost on my own in this House of Dust

Who tends the garden when I'm not there
Who lights the candle
through the darkest hours when the world is filled with fear
I will remember when you were there
sleeping beside me through the darkest hours
when the world is bathed in fear

[Chorus]

Let me know where to find you
Why should I care to find you
You left me alone in this House of Dust
Your heaven will not receive you
Nobody will believe you
I'm setting the Flame to this House of Dust
12. Blood Of The Saints (4:48)
[Music: De Feis/Pursino, lyrics: De Feis]

London is mine, New York and Paris shall fall
One Ring to Rule in Darkness to bind them all
Come to me now a moth to the Flame
Burning your eyes as you stare
With the Blood of the Salnts

Stand on the shore watching the ships as they burn
None will be found the sea will be their final urn
Come to me now a moth to the Flame
Burning your eyes as you stare
I will devour a Specter of Power I will be King for a Day

In passion denicd you call to the gods
In gluttinous sin your face so sublime
With the Blood of the Saints
13. Life Among The Ruins (6:02)
[Music and lyrics: De Feis]

Gunfire up in heaven no religion here
raping your salvation, the last sound that you'll hear
the snap of the noose the crack of the whip
the hangman's face is torn
in shameless crucifixion a savage nation's born

Behold the new messiah, arising from the wound
in rags of execution freedom is consumned

You are a rose you are a blade
I'm down on my knees in the dark in the fiery reign
life among the ruins

I've lived among the ruins walked among the dead
loved among the wreckage beneath a flag of red
communion of blood so bitter the cup
a union born of fear
creation and perdition a world within a tear

Behold the new messiah, arising from his bed
holier in silence, paler than the dead

[Chorus]

[Chorus/with - I challenge you to love my bride of pain]

With the dying sun of autumn bathing us in gold
we walk the desolation hand in hand against the cold
while rampant runs the reaper all thru the barren plains
with sycthe in hand he reaches to harvest the last remains
in agony you stumble with a curse upon your lips you die
I can't feel you anymore
vengeance is mine!

[Chorus 2x/with - bare your breast and save this child of pain]
life among the ruins
