Sit Stand Kneel Prey Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Climb Out of Hell (4:14)
Give me just one reason
Not to kill you where you stand
High caliber deliverance
God squeezed within my hand
Don't care if you suffer
Or how much you bleed
I'll cleanse you of your sins
Cause it may be all you need
The flesh rips, peels and tears
From a gentle kiss of lead
The firey, hateful world in which
You are soon to be
A lifeless, soulless shell to gaze upon eternally

Watching you climb from below
Crying like rain as you fell
Reeping the pain that you sow
Climbing in vain out of hell

A single flash, a deadly crash
Of lead against your brain
The ending will come quickly
So there shouldn't be no pain
They'll notify your friends
To satisfy their need for grief
If you were stolen from them
Just call me the thief
You'll get your little service
They'll come and cry for you
They might as well cry for themselves
I'm sure I'll get them too
Don't take it all so personally
It's just somethin' I do
My victim's always faceless
Just this time it's you

Watching you climb from below
Crying like rain as you fell
Reeping the pain that you sow
Climbing in vain out of hell

I'm watching
And I'm waiting
Until you're alone
The dark one
Has sent one
To bring you back home

Watching you climb from below
Crying like rain as you fell
Reeping the pain that you sow
Climbing in vain out of hell.
2. Left Unsaid (4:08)
I'm lying here, I cannot move
With nothing left for me to prove
With all the signs of life removed
Embalmed, eternally entombed
This emptiness I feel inside
I'm all alone, I wonder why
What left me here, what suicide
Left me with eyes that cannot cry

What's left unsaid remains that way
Words now lie dead - I cannot say
What's left unsaid is gone today
Words now lie dead - I'll never say

You're running out of air it seems
Like you've been killed in all your dreams
Blood trickling down in blues and greens
In neverending horror scenes
Your life is built on stone as cold
As the empty shell that held your soul
There ain't no guilt down in this hole
You're here for good - or so I'm told

What's left unsaid remains that way
Words now lie dead - I cannot say
What's left unsaid is gone today
Words now lie dead - I'll never say

What's left unsaid is just a shell
To show you who has gone to hell
I wish I could have one more try
Just watch the hellfires in my eyes

You can't escape from where you'll lay
Non sense of time, no night or day
No sight or sound in where you'll stay
We wouldn't have you anyway
So when the time has come you'll know
Your heart won't beat and your blood won't flow
Remember when you're left below
That I'm the one who told you so

What's left unsaid remains that way
Words now lie dead - I cannot say
What's left unsaid is gone today
Words now lie dead - I'll never say.
3. Hitlist (3:52)
Don't matter if you see it comin'
Don't matter if it's fair or not
You'll see as your blood is running
You deserve just what you got

You're at the top of the hitlist
You always wanted to be number one

There ain't a thing you do I don't know
That's part of what I do
I can make your wife a widow
Half now, half when I'm through

Somebody paid me nicely
To quiet you for good
If you had thought more wisely
You'd know somebody would

Don't need money to appease me
I won't be that forgiving
You see it's really all quite easy
Your dying is my living

You're at the top of the hitlist
You always wanted to be first in line
You're at the top of the hitlist
You always wanted to be number one.
4. Cyanide Grenade (4:12)
Nocturnal light from deadly suns
Illuminates my fate
Concussions all around me
In my trench I shake and wait
Nausea overwhelms me
The dead fill every space
They wait for resurrections
Bullets ripping past my face

I see the wounded falling
Grimaces they wore
Soldiers and civilians
They died the rich and poor
All are consumed by fire
Bodies turned to rags
Mothers only sons
Returned to them in bags

The final plan unfurled
No relief till all has died
The extinction of the world
In a blast of cyanide

Unsparing shrapnel tears through flesh
Merciless round by round
Like seeds the bodies scattered
Too dense to see the ground
The deafening siege of fire power
Roaring for days on end
No one's going home now
And there's not much left to send

All are consumed by fire
Bodies turned to rags
Mothers only sons
Returned to them in bags
The deafening siege of fire power
Roaring for days on end
No one's going home now
There's not much left to send

The final plan unfurled
No relief till all has died
The extinction of the world
In a blast of cyanide.
5. Jane Doe (4:14)
No longer know just what you like
Nor how to taste or feel
Life erased with just one strike
It's taken all that is real

All of your yesterdays
How were they stripped away?

Your body's still intact my dear
Your mind is laid to waste
No familiar sounds to hear
A stranger's found in every face

All of your yesterdays
How were they stripped away?

Wishing for a helping hand
Faces cold unfeeling stone
Never knowing where you stand
With no history alone

All of your yesterdays...
6. Knock Me Down (5:25)
Looking back it seems so long now
And it's still all wrong now
'Least it is to me
Never thought of being you now
But it's all so true now
Guess it has to be

Sure it's alright
Until I turn around
Picking me up
Just to knock me down

Well I could've done some things man
Just pulled some strings man
Just to make you glad
Am I just a letdown to you?
Does it cut right through you?
What you could've had

Sure it's alright
Until I turn around
Picking me up
Just to knock me down

I wish you could see
Just how you look now
I know you can't see
Just what you took now

All the plans made for tomorrow
Only end in sorrow, never came to be
And my heart's forever bleeding
'Cause what I'm needing
Never came to me

Sure it's alright
Until I turn around
Picking me up
Just to knock me down.
7. Lack of Contrition (5:55)
While we wait for an answer
On how we should live
You feel like a cancer
On all that we give
All the sermons you're giving
From your pulpit so tall
Yeah, you're making a living
One the blind faith of all

And no one believes you
And yourself still deceives you

Every time you say you're sorry
You bleed a little of me out
Every time you change your story
You've got one less to lie to now

While they all kneel repenting
To heaven they cry
Their god they're resenting
As lives go awry
You speak of damnation
How they're led astray
You secure their salvation
With money they pay

You lead them to follow
Orations of sorrow

Every time you say you're sorry
You bleed a little of me out
Every time you change your story
You've got one less to lie to now

While we wait for an answer
On how we should live
You feel like a cancer
On all that we give
You speak of damnation
How they're led astray
You secure their salvation
With money they pay

Every time you say you're sorry
You bleed a little of me out
Every time you change your story
You've got one less to lie to now.

You lead them to follow
You'll repent tomorrow

Every lie, it cuts and scars me
It bleeds a little of me out
Every time you change your story
You've got one less to cry to, lie to - now.
8. Word to the Wise (4:11)
I've tried so many times
To forget the things I've done
But you don't seem to let me
I guess it's all just in fun
Maybe I should ask you nice
Like civil people do
I'd get away with murder
If I'd only think it through

Try and stop just long enough
And look into my eyes
Push me and I'll push right back
Word to the wise

One time let me do things
One time my own way
I've sweat blood just to please you
How much can I pay?
I feel I'm being smothered
Your hands outstretched to my face
Clasped in prayer around my throat
I'll die in your embrace

Try to stop just long enough
And look into my eyes
Push me and I'll push right back
Can't you realize
Holding back is all that's tough
Word to the wise
Push me and I'll push right back
Cut you down to size

One time let me do things
One time my own way
I've sweat blood just to please you
How much can I pay?
I feel I'm being smothered
Your hands outstretched to my face
Clasped in prayer around my throat
I'll die in your embrace

Try and stop just long enough
And look into my eyes
Push me and I'll push right back
Word to the wise.
9. Strangeface (5:13)
The lines are all shut down
And your eyes are turned away
I can tell I'm getting nowhere
With the words I say
Words falling on deaf ears
As you dream of something new
I know you're going nowhere
And nothing I can do

Nobody promised you life in hell
You're not dreaming
You whispered for someone to help
Now you're screaming

Now, I see the loss in your eyes
I know the hows and the whys
I've seen the lows and the highs
This strangeface staring at me

You would never believe me
Thought the truth was for other ones
Look for solace in your use
And find another one
Clouds weeping tears of rain
Someday you'll feel the sun
Can't wash away the pain for you
The forgotten one

Hanging over rocks below
Cold wind blowin'
Covering tracks left in the snow
No one knowing

Now, I see the loss in your eyes
I know the hows and the whys
I've seen the lows and the highs
This strangeface staring at me

Nobody could see through
What you had turned into
You're reclusive, elusive, abusive
The truth is you're lying, crying, denying, and dying

Now, I see the loss in your eyes
I know the hows and the whys
I've seen the lows and the highs
This strangeface staring at me

A stranger lives in your eyes
The web you've spun out of lies
The time has passed for goodbyes
This strangeface you despise.
10. Catharsis (1:21)
11. Sit, Stand, Kneel, Prey (6:47)
Looking out through stained glass eyes
Strange faces feeding me lies
Making the masses believe
Better to give than receive

Maybe I don't want to be
Part of the hypocrisy
But I find it hard to see
Past the fact you're killing me

Sit! Beside you!
Stand! Deride you!
Kneel! Anoint me!
Prey! Exploit thee!
Sit! Beside you!
Stand! Deride you!
Kneel! Anoint thee!
Prey! Destroy me!

Now I've got nowhere to run
Can't take back things that I've done
Always obeyed what they say
Always forbade me to stray

And what if I did believe?
Would I just be the next deceived?
In your depraved carnality
Fall empty words from up your sleeve

Sit! Beside you!
Stand! Deride you!
Kneel! Anoint me!
Prey! Exploit thee!
Sit! Beside you!
Stand! Deride you!
Kneel! Anoint thee!
Prey! Destroy me!

Sit! Beside you!
Stand! Deride you!
Kneel! Anoint me!
Prey! Exploit thee!
Sit! Beside you!
Stand! Deride you!
Kneel! Anoint thee!
Prey! Destroy me!

Molded you into their ways
The meek shall inherit their graves

Maybe I don't want to be
A part of the hypocrisy
A thousand years of tyranny
Can never make your blind man see!

Sit! Beside you!
Stand! Deride you!
Kneel! Anoint me!
Prey! Exploit thee!
Sit! Beside you!
Stand! Deride you!
Kneel! Anoint thee!
Prey! Destroy me!

Sit! Beside you!
Stand! Deride you!
Kneel! Anoint me!
Prey! Exploit thee!
Sit! Beside you!
Stand! Deride you!
Kneel! Anoint thee!
Prey! Destroy me!
