Cult of One Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Such Is the Will (6:20)
Why do I only see what I want to see,
And only believe what I want to believe,
Death is in the air, yes, it’s coming for me,
Stealing my soul to wither below.

As you have lived,
One day you will die, straight to the kill.
Death strikes again, I’m afraid it’s time,
Such is the will.

Blacker than night, I will not know a thing.
No thoughts, no desires, what else it will bring.
A shadow in chains, in its own misery,
Coming for me, coming for me.

As you have lived,
One day you will die, straight to the kill.
Death strikes again, I’m afraid it’s time,
Such is the will.

All such thoughts come into my head,
Will my soul carry on when my body is dead
Burn what is left, leave what’s left unsaid
Such is the will

As you have lived,
One day you will die, straight to the kill.
Death strikes again, I’m afraid it’s time,
Such is the will.
2. No One's Idol (5:24)
You’re the icon of shame, entirely to blame
Contaminating everything you touch
Socially rejected, consequently neglected
Undivided nations scorn the likes of such

Disgracing
Nauseating
You’re no one’s idol – No one’s idol
Pathetic
So eccentric
You’re no one’s idol – No one’s idol

Such an incriminating stare, toward your tangled, twisted hair
You’re on display for every man to criticize
When one’s life is a total waste,
A disgusting disgrace
What a sickening excuse for a human life

Immoral
Indecent
You’re no one’s idol – No one’s idol
Offensive
Repulsive
You’re no one’s idol – No one’s idol

You welcome filth with open arms, your mistakes do such harm
The stench of you makes stomachs toss and turn
Exit your presence let me breathe, don’t want none of your disease,
Look at your ragged filthy life when will you learn?

Disgracing
Nauseating
You’re no one’s idol – No one’s idol
Pathetic
So eccentric
You’re no one’s idol – No one’s idol
Immoral
Indecent
You’re no one’s idol – No one’s idol
Offensive
Repulsive
You’re no one’s idol – No one’s idol
3. No Fear to Tread (5:13)
Coward, screaming, hiding, bleeding
Put your fear to the rear and face the pain
Driven to violence, power devours
Evil comes around, brings you down
‘Til you’re insane

No fear
No one strips me of my pride
You’ve been warned
Now get out of my way
Corruption, hunger, possessed by desire
There’s always one man out to rule the world.
Killing, slaughter, destruction, order
Wish this fucking nightmare would go away

No fear
No one strips me of my pride
I’d rather die with dignity
No fear
I will fight until I fall
But I won’t fall ‘til humanity is saved

History, repeated, always defeated
Freedom rules, you can’t take that from me
Power to the people, eliminate the evil
If we all stand tall our strength won’t waste away

No fear
No one strips me of my pride
I’d rather die with dignity
No fear
I will fight until I fall
You’ve been warned, someone’s got to pay
4. 1,000 Times (6:52)
I don’t see them taking me alive
Blinded by the blood that stains my eyes
I won’t give in – no!

I’ll fight to the finish
I don’t want to die
No, I don’t want to lose my pride
I’ve got all it takes to survive
I’ve seen my death 1.000 times

Greed from hell falls down so hard on the innocent
I pray they see the light of Heaven shine
There is no pity

I’ll fight to the finish
I don’t want to die
No, I don’t want to lose my pride
I’ve got all it takes to survive
I’ve seen my death 1.000 times

Screams for life they seem so far away
Life makes death one hell of a price to pay
I want revenge

I’ll fight to the finish
I don’t want to die
No, I don’t want to lose my mind
I’ve got all it takes to survive
I’ve seen my death 1.000 times
5. Wheel of Misfortune (5:23)
Alone again, it never fails
Always seems to happen to me
Just when I think I’ve got it all,
Along comes fate, it all falls to the floor

Naïve but yet so conscious
Of the grim reality that I endure
I never won this game before,
Why does it happen to me?

I’m alive, but I’m not winning,
The life that I live, tell me who I to blame?

I’m so broke but I survive,
Can’t keep up with modern times
It all costs more than I can afford,
Why should a man have to beg for more?

I see the rich get richer
While the poor survive day by day, it’s wrong
I’m sick of all that I endure
The world where I belong

I’m alive, but I’m not winning
The life I live, tell me who am I to blame?
So alive, my head is spinning, my mind keeps turning,
Life is killing me.

It’s always me who hits the wall,
The only man to take the fall
I fall onto my knees and cry,
‘Cause everything I have just died

I try so hard to make it
In a world so cold, it’s rotten to the cire
But I’ll keep trying more and more
‘Til I get what’s coming to me
6. Heavenaut (7:50)
I never feel the same, I can’t sleep at night
Since that godforsaken madman took your life
I’m going insane, a pain I cannot fight,
I cry most every night
I cry myself to death, don’t want to live without you

Come take my hand and hold me tight
God shines his light on me tonight
I need you now, help me through the night
I don’t want to live without you anymore

Life’s too short, a speck in time
A flash of light in one’s mind
In my dreams, all I find
Are memories of another time
Why did you leave me alone?

Hush my baby don’t your cry, mommy’s gone away
I need you now, I need you now
Everything you were to me, I need you now
Forever in my heart I cry

Come take my hand and hold me tight
God shines his light on me tonight
I need you now, help me through the night
I don’t want to live, I need you now

Build me a wall 100 feet high and leave me to wither
Call me insane, lock me behind my bloodshot mind
What’s there to live for when all that you had was crushed and devoured
Just go away, leave me alone, can’t you see that I want to die?

Why did you leave me alone?
I just can’t live without you
Why did you leave me alone?
I’ve suffered so much pain

Life’s so unfair as I crumble to the ground
Takes back what it’s given
Where am I now? Who do I have? How do I cry?
I love you now more than ever before,
I yearn just to touch you
I’ll never forget the look in your eyes
Why the hell did you have to die?

Why did you leave me alone?
I just can’t live without you
Why did you leave me alone?
I’ve suffered so much pain
7. Lost World (5:26)
8. Cult of One (8:28)
My life worth next to nothing
Tell me who am I to blame?
I’ve grown to my addiction
You would think I’ve gone insane
They talk to me at times, they never go away
Voices from the past
When I was young I felt the pain

What was once me has died
Cold and empty inside
Hungry you are my prey
Watch your life slip away

How much can I take?
I must have cried a million times
Can I escape retribution?
Clear these thoughts from my mind
How can I look you in the eyes, as your life fades away?
Welcome to your death
I love to hear you scream

What was once me has died
Cold and empty inside
Hungry you are my prey
Watch your life slip away

I don’t know why I see my life through your eyes
As my pain starts to die, so will you

Hear the voices in my head
Whisper what they expect from me
Sacrifices to my religion
Killing everything I see
Come to me my love, I will show you the way
I will haunt you ‘til forever
And forever comes today

What was once me has died
Cold and empty inside
Hungry you are my prey
Watch your life slip away
9. Enemy (4:32)
The President gave the word the other day,
He ruled the world
Time to meet your nightmare face to face
Start the fires
Cities are burning,
I’m scared out of my jeans.
I’m about to see hell man,
God must have set me free

What does it mean to make a man realise,
He who makes war – Enemy
How many die in the blink of an eye,
Just to settle the score
Why does it take forever
Open your eyes – Enemy
How many die in the blink of an eye,
And I want to know why it’s me who’s fighting

Drive a man to the point of insanity,
You make him kill.
No remorse ‘cause mercy’s dangerous,
You’re a death machine
Men wounded, lie screaming
I’m dying, help me
I’ll never see my mother’s face again.

What does it mean to make a man realise,
He who makes war – Enemy
How many die in the blink of an eye,
Just to settle the score

What does it mean to make a man realise,
He who makes war – Enemy
How many die in the blink of an eye,
Just to settle the score
Why does it take forever
Open your eyes – Enemy
How many die in the blink of an eye,
And I want to know why it’s me who’s fighting

Every minute more, one minute less
They’ve come for you
Will this be the day life ends for me
You’ll never know what hit you
Helpless and broken,
I don’t want to die
I’m too young to fade to grey.

What does it mean to make a man realise,
He who makes war – Enemy
How many die in the blink of an eye,
Just to settle the score
Why does it take forever
Open your eyes – Enemy
How many die in the blink of an eye
10. Apostle of Truth (6:51)
Trust in this man, break bread with this man
Welcome me into your home with your wife and your children
Give me the shirt off your back as I plan my attack
Take for all that it’s worth, I’m the villain

Devoted disciple of integrity
I am your task rehabilitate me
The calling has come, you’re compelled to comply
You have the power to heal – my mind

Hold me to all that you own
Leave me there all alone
I will swear by my name to be loyal
I’ll put the ease in your mind,
You’ll return just to find
That your life has been taken from you

Devoted disciple of integrity
I am your task rehabilitate me
The calling has come, you’re compelled to comply
You have the power to heal

Faith, hope and love seen better days
Loyalty and honour I’ve abandoned from my ways
Lies all lies, I admit I’m wrong
Feed me all your trust, but I will ignore

I need a saint to insure, He will help me to cure
The incurable cure – I’m a liar
I live my life as a thief, full of my own beliefs
Show me land where there is truth, I will follow

Devoted disciple of integrity
I am your task rehabilitate me
The calling has come, you’re compelled to comply
You have the power to heal all lies

The lies
No more lies
No more lies
No more lies
No more lies
