The Illusion of Motion Lyrics

(4)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Ball of Molten Lead (11:09)
Death on the horizon
Consciousness asleep
The soul is unprepared
Fear runs deep
Always agonizing
On what can't be known
Heavy is the burden
When the tester rules the throne

Try to realize
Who's born and who dies
Struggling to know
The truth to this bardo

The wright of knowledge
Burden of old
It seems so simple
With eyes closed
Starting to wake up
From an ageless ruse
What once was choice
Now I can't refuse

Try to realize
Who's born and who dies
Struggling to know
The truth to this bardo

The ball of molten
The ball of molten lead
Trying to dislodge
Trying to dislodge the ball of molten lead

Feeling found and lost together
Gone too far to turn back now
King of death is overthrown
Bid this world a last goodbye

Void the gaze without the eyes
Shedding tears but no one cries
Inhale the space of the vessel
Bid the host a last goodbye

So sick and tired of the lies
Force fed as truth in perfect disguise
Squander this life in belief of the false
I try but I can't dislodge this
Ball of doubt
2. Exorcism of the Host (12:59)
Can't hide the darkness within
Darkness and the light entwined
No chance for mercy and salvation
Endless struggle for dominance

Oil and water
Fuel for the slaughter
Breeds remorse and breeds regret
The false prophets scream their disease

Burn the bridges to feed the wolves
Cannot find solace in this state
Duel nature of the possession
Reaching for heaven finding hell

Oil and water
Fuel for the slaughter
Breeds remorse and breeds regret
The false prophets scream their disease

All right-the inner war begins
Clear sight-past an future dead
In the eyes-delivered from dispair
In the all-the host be banned and broken

All right-the self takes charge of thee
Clear sight-the truth is clear to see
In the eyes-the rigpa is dawning
In the all-for once a true life begins

Within. Within
Set free

One for man, one for the all
One for peace buried in earth
One for souls who pray for mercy
Cannot feel any pain

In the darkness on knees and crawl
Trying to find the way out of the mental maze
Pursued by the ghosts of what is and what will be
To escape the iron will of the host
3. Doom #2 (6:11)
Inside the anger grows
From words made up of dust
The false leaped from the breath of centuries
Tearing our lives apart

Worlds below sleep in ignorance
With dissention from the skies
Mass daily chanting gleam of madness
In their eyes

Decadence within the law
Wage destruction on the void
Devour all that's held as sacred
Fools will feast well tonight

While they lived
With dissention from the skies
Worlds below sleep in ignorance
Of their demise

To be gods in lies
Constant race we have to find the cure for the misery

Eden's fall, fall from grace
Imaginary Disgrace

Take the pills
To erase the pain
Subliminal it's so obscene
Confusion rules
As we try to find the cure
For the misery

Ride out on the desert
To do battle with the mind
Afraid of what I'll find
Afraid of what I will find

Disenchanted-sell what is meant to be free
Take for granted-the eternal truth of the whole
Cannot live in these golden chains prison in disguise
The world engulfed in flames fuels the wretched false
Perpetuate the dream

I will awake the sleeper within
4. The Illusion of Motion (26:10)
Can no longer stand the pain
Life and death both chains
Try to climb the human walls
Tear them down and see what remains
Emptied of the embattled false
Will to resist disappears
Emptied of half truths taught from birth
With the dawn of emptiness

Overjoyed with our pain
Fall asleep another thousand years
I hope we find eternal rest in the bed that we've made

All around is the sutra
All phenomena empty
With no beginning and no end
Nothing lost and nothing gained
The mind grasps at fleeting phantoms
Nothing is seen as it is
The world seen through tainted eyes
The Illusion of motion

Overjoyed with our pain
Fall asleep another thousand years
I hope we find eternal rest in the bed that we've made
Solace within the grasp
Of those who embrace this life

The ball of hot lead burns in the back of my throat
The doubt mass burns the doubt mass the doubt mass remains
To far to turn back now
Spectre revealed godhead removed

[Tibetan Chant]

Brothers sisters unite
There's no reason to die
Tear to pieces we're torn apart
Slaves to this battle slaves to this war

For life for life
To quell the sorrow
Born from belief
All of our knowledge
All of our tragedies
Risen from dust
Tears of yesterday
Recreated today
