Facing the Animal Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level 이준기
1. Braveheart (5:19)
Closing my mouth
before I scream
No-one cane shake
my self-esteem

Whisper my name
confuse my mind
To me it's the same
if I'll survive

This game you can't win
Who is free from sin
I won't be afraid
My soul will remain

Go on and sleep
the sleep of the just
If your conscience is clean
do what you must

One day you will know
I was a friend, not foe
I won't be afraid
My soul will remain
Let go of your hate
I won't be afraid

I won'r be afraid
My soul will remain
let go of your hate
I won't be afraid, oh no...
2. Facing the Animal (4:37)
Sinking my teeth
into you
Sweet obscenity
You're in too deep
for your own good
I'm commanding thee
Succumb to me
set me free

Facing the animal
Walking the higher ground
Lost in a ritual
I close your eyes
and kiss you twice

Facing the animal

The scent of your skin
Overpowers me
there is no remedy
It comes from within
the divinity
I just can't resist
Must admit
I'm losing it

Facing the animal
3. Enemy (4:53)
What an enemy
You became to me
Lived a fantasy
An illusion

Built scenery
Played to the gallery
like so many we
Never could agree

All the pain that I
Had to hide inside
Made me realize
I was starved

Tried so hard to be
Anyone but me
Everyone could see
So, I've opened my eyes

I'm no longer waiting for a miracle
Hold my head up high, the future's
now

Though I was colorblind
I read the warning signs
And put the past behind
Down the gutter

Now I finally see
That the enemy
is both in you and me
Yeah, I've opened my eyes

I'm no longer waiting for a miracle
Hold my head up high, the future's
now
No use in waiting for a miracle
Hold my head up high, my future's
now
4. Sacrifice (4:19)
How many times must I tell you
I will not pretend
Will it ever end
Guess there's a need to condenm
What I defend

Say what you will
In for the kill
I'll stand my ground
At any sacrifice

Tearing my heart out
And serve it to you on a plate
Bitter to the taste
One bite is all you can take
the rest's thrown away

Left on my own
Cold as a stone
No matter what you imply
I'll survive at any sacrifice

I'm walking a wasteland
Where beauty and truth can't be seen
A never ending game
The world keeps on turning but I
will stay the same
5. Like an Angel - For April (5:47)
I've been searching for you
for so long
My life's been sacrificed
I've been longing for truth
And now I have found
all that in you

Like an angel you came to me
And now I see
The stranger in me is finally free
To fel true love

From heaven I knew you were born
on the wings of love
you were brought to me
I've been longing for truth
journeyed so far
to be with you

Like an angel you came to me
And now I see
The stranger in me is finally free
To fel true love
6. My Resurrection (4:49)
I'm back to life
from the walking dead
no more demons in my head

I'm sick of uglly lies
Leave this bal and chain<
as the hatred dies, so does pain

My soul is free
I've got wind beneath my wings
Yesterday's gone
My heart sings

Time to believe
In the better part of me
Tomorrow is here
Awaiting

My resurrection
My resurrection

One chain don't make no prison
Two wrongs don't make a right
I have never felt so alive
7. Another Time (5:03)
Feeling restless
Crave for company
never gave me
Any room to breathe

Intuition
Soon made me wise
As you ran out of
Alibis

Took time to draw the line
That I can't deny
Nothing is plain or black and white
You fight like a tired soldier
Shielded by wounded pride
Always pretending to be strong
Desperately waiting for

Another time, another place
I don't care no more
I am the one you can't replace
A fact you can't ignore

Can you face it
I'm forever gone
Dug your own grave
Shot with your own gun
8. Heathens from the North (3:40)
Dress in armour
bring your sword and shield
and your lucky charm
In dragonships
we'll sail the seven seas
under guiding stars

Into battle - we will ride
Gods will follow - by our side

Heathens from the north
Heathens from the north

The air is still, the
bodies cold and pale
they'll never live to tell
About the slaughter
when battleground ran red
we gave them hell

Into battle - sense of pride
We're forever - shining bright

Heathens from the north
Heathens from the north

Heathens from the north
Heathens from the north
We are immortal
ever shining bright
Heathens from the north, yeah
9. Alone in Paradise (4:34)
All of my life
Needed a reason
to find out who I am

I've had my share
Acts of treason
Slipping right through my hands
What am I waiting for...

Sometimes I feel
Like I live in a dream
Alone in my Paradise Lost

Can it be real
Tell me what does this mean
Alone in my Paradise Lost

So many years
Is there an answer?
In this castle made of sand

As time passes by
I'm running out of chances
Who will understand
What I am waiting for...
10. End of My Rope (4:25)
Don't make a move
Don't amke a sound
I've got my eyes trained on you
The target is found

You waited too long
I'd rather stand on my own
Ain't no more blanks left to fill
In my list of sins
I'm at the end of my rope

The louder you speak
The less I hear
I gotta let off some steam
and driven by fear

Tell me I'm wrong
'cause this can't go on
I'd rather stand on my own
Ain't no more blanks left to fill
In my list of sins
I'm at the end of my rope

Leave me alone
This can't go on
Not anymore, no

You waited too long
Listen and soon you''l be gone
Tell me I'm wrong
'acause this can't go on
11. Only the Strong (6:06)
Ask yourself where you're
hearding for
Deviate - no need
to conform

All it takes is some
confidence
Seize the day, it might not
come again

Only the strong will survive
Stand tall and never die
Come out from where you hide
No need you swallow your pride

Only the strong will survive
get up and reach for the sky
Don't wait for no-one and
Don't let your heart be denied

Face the truth and
control your fate
Set the pace
never hesitate

All that scares you and
makes you doubt
Break the silence, just
spit it out
12. Poison in Your Veins (4:24)
I paint a smile on you
'cause you want me to
then I unmask you
laughing in your face

If you had half a mind
I wouldn't even try
But you're so naive
just can't let you be

Make me glorious
and victorious
I'm superior

Time to pay the price
Throw off my disguise
Poison in your veins
So easily deceived
The lie that you believe
Poison in your veins

You follow my advice
and feed my appetite
WWhat you leave behind
I will claim as mine

In the end you'll see
what you're meant to be
Something obsolete
mission is complete

Call me disgrace
To the human race
I don't give a damn

Time to pay the price
Throw off my disguise
Poison in your veins
So easily deceived
The lie that you believe
Poison in your veins
13. Air on a Theme (1:43)
[Instrumental]
14. Casting Pearls before the Swine (bonus track) (3:56)
[Japanese bonus track]

The seconds are ticking and time's slowly slipping away, yeah
Th stakes getting higher, fight fire with fire again

[Chorus:]
Casting pearls before the swine
I know it's wrong, it's out of line
I would rather die than follow you
Yeah, I'd rather die

Try to poison my mind, had enough of your kind
You're all blind
So little you know, 'bout my heart and my soul and my pride
Get a life!

[Chorus]

Yeah, I'd rather die
You're all blind, yeah
