Dying for the World Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Shadow Man (5:34)
Asleep in black
There's no light in the crack
The crooked fingers for you
No don't ya dare say a prayer
It's just the nights in your mare
Oh the long forever you'll do

No mercy - no coming back
No mercy - forever fade to black

Oh where's the god that made you
Oh you're superman
Going down forever - to never land
Oh where's the God you pray
Forsaken again
Never knew forever
The Shadow Man

Oh free at last
With a heart in the black
Forever shadowing you
Don't you swear to the terror
Your god never cares
Oh come oh whatever your do

[Repeat bridge]
[Repeat chorus]
[Repeat chorus]

Where's the god that made you
Oh you're superman
Going down forever to never land
Don't runaway or hide again
No gates of Heaven
2. My Wicked Heart (5:38)
Am I free
Am I done believing
Oh God Jehovah
I've never known religion
Lost in the darkness of my memories
Deep in the darkness of my heart
Coiled in the grasses that torment me
There lies my serpents in the dark

Father I'm here in the dark
And I know it's forever night
Ain't nothing gonna change forever
My wicked heart
Father I'm here in the dark
And I know my heart is the darkness
Oh tell me can you claim me never
My darkest heart

Am I too far beyond forgiving
A borrowed soul ain't never known believing
Lost in the dark can you forgive me
Deep in the darkness of my heart
Coiled in the grasses that torment me
There lies my serpents in the dark

[Repeat chorus]

Because nothing can change my wicked heart
Nothing can tame my wicked heart
Nothing unchains my wicked heart
3. Black Bone Torso (2:16)
Black bone torso, black bone torso
Cyanide a suicide
No thoughts of pain
Genocide a crucified martyr's laid
Down to the dust there to fade away
All geeks and circus freaks
Come play with me
Pimps to bring my sex fiends
Molesting me
Round to the lust my debauchery
Destined here to reign supreme
Your bloodied king
Dying for the world
Oh death where is thy sting
My black bone torso's
Bleeding me
4. Hell For Eternity (4:38)
Where ya gonna run
Ya never should have come
But welcome to the ball
My hands on the trigger
My guns getting bigger
I'll introduce you all

Won't you say
Hello my little friend
On your knees
And pray to die
Oh, you're gonna burn tonight

Hell - kill'em to Hell for Eternity
Oh, tonight
Hell - send'em to Hell for Eternity
Oh, it's alright

Nothing's gonna save ya
Oh ya better pray - to
Whatever God you want
Yeah I'm a killer
Oh I'm a thriller
I'm Godzilla with a gun

[Repeat bridge]
[Repeat chorus]

Oh don't you cry
To your God for mercy
Oh woah you're gonna die
Like a shot from my gun
You're gonna burn, burn, burn
Yeah you're gonna burn, burn

[Repeat chorus]
5. Hallowed Ground (5:54)
Come and take me down the dark beyond
And take me there where I come from
Take me down to the place where I'll kneel
And let me lay my shadow down
In through the eyes of a child's inner me
No pain to heal my bloodied brow

There is no rain to save this silent town
There is no rain to save at all
There is no place to save this silent ground
There is no place to save at all

Oh Father take me unto where I'll lay me down
On Hallowed Ground
Oh the sky is falling
And I don't know where my home is now
My Hallowed Ground
Oh and can you take me
For I have tasted Hallowed Ground
Oh all around

Father - do you hear me
This pain I will not cry aloud
Father - I know you hear me
My head is bludgeoned but unbowed

[Repeat chorus]
6. Revengeance (5:21)
Why's my blood race
Why I gnash my teeth
Sand man's come here
With his misery
You wrought with pain
As you slash my flesh
Wrath's revenge lives again

I'll kill your pain oh the seeds of cane
I ain't no stranger giving love
Don't ya plead
Oh won't ya bleed for me
Hell's be raining from above

I'm coming home
Vengeance be thy name
I'm coming home
Revengence scream my name

Cane killed Abel - did his brother's deed
Cursed all time
Damned to spread his seed
Pricks to blind
Thorns are in my side
Oh, slay thy brother's life

[Repeat bridge]
[Repeat chorus]

Oh your God's got you dying to be
Oh your martyr's in the sand
I'll hunt you down like the dogs that you be
Your Armageddon's in my hands

[Repeat chorus]
7. Trail Of Tears (5:51)
There's a thousand voices in my head
Long ago
Come inside, see yourself tonight
Let me in, floating in the wind
Oh, I don't know
The sounds you hear
Are silent in the night

Take me down to the trail of tears
Where tomorrow never knows
A resurrection closer to a
Light I've never known
Play the game existence to the
Living end I go
Take me down to the trail of tears
Where tomorrow never knows

The lost road of destiny
I ride away home
Head to lay on velvet nails tonight
And will I lay down to close my eyes
Oh, I don't know
Spirit wind with broken wings to fly away home

[Repeat chorus]

My feet are raw from the
Trail where I've been
Oh God these tears are evermore
My heart is gone
Oh to never come again
I'll walk the stars
On my way home

[Repeat chorus]
8. Stone Cold Killers (4:57)
Think about the sorrow you brought
Think of all the horror you made
Lying to a world that you wrought
Dying for the world, oh that you made

Johnny get your guns
You'll need all of those prophets you pray
Oh yeah Johnny get your guns
I've come to kill the god that you made

I'm gonna murder superman
Murder superman
Stone cold killer's what I am
Your widowmaking ones come
You can't hide
I'm gonna murder superman
Murder superman
I got a heart breaker in my hands
Yeah here I come
You're gonna die

What'd you get for the souls that you bought
The bloody dead in the trades
Don't never blame the souls that you lost
Upon the whores of Babylon that you laid

[Repeat bridge]
[Repeat chorus]

Your lying messiah you know isn't real
How will you die for the one that you kneel
Better get your guns
I'm gonna kill your god
My God will kill your god
9. Rubber Man (4:26)
The man of steal is
Master of lies
This rubber mother's
Tied to me for life
Heart breaker the snake
He'll do it to you
Oh he's killing me alive

I'm tied to rubber
I'm tied up for life

I'm dying from pain
Let me go
Here he comes I'm hiding my hole
Don't give me your grease
I'm dying for rubber
I'm dying from pain
I'm dying no
Don't give me your love
Get down on your knees
And give me your rubber

The son of Charlie
Morgue of liars
Don't let him get ya
Oh or he'll sodomize you
Ball breaker and raper'll
Do it to you
Rubber man's a fucking liar

[Repeat bridge]
[Repeat chorus]
10. Hallowed Ground (acoustic) (6:08)
Come and take me down the dark beyond
And take me there where I come from
Take me down to the place where I'll kneel
And let me lay my shadow down
In through the eyes of a child's inner me
No pain to heal my bloodied brow
There is no rain to save this silent town
There is no rain to save at all
There is no place to save this silent ground
There is no place to save at all
Oh Father take me unto where I'll lay me down
On Hallowed Ground
Oh the sky is falling
And I don't know where my home is now
My Hallowed Ground
Oh and can you take me
For I have tasted Hallowed Ground
Oh all around
Father - do you hear me
This pain I will not cry aloud
Father - I know you hear me
My head is bludgeoned but unbowed
