Act of God Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. To The Last Breath (5:38)
Imitate your heroes
Emulate beliefs
Set the standard, set the trap
(Now) mimic what you see
Praise what I praise
Crucify the truth
Say what I say
Get them hooked and turn the screw

[Chorus:]
Get off your knees
Get to your feet and unbowed your head
Nobody else will live your life for you,
Or you’re better off dead…
We shall remain

Quick to praise, not shift to thought
Brings an idle mind
An idle mind breeds mindless sheep
To a shepherd they flock
His staffs of lies lead the way
They breed conformity
I cannot, I shall not, I will not obey!
Out of sight, out of mind
Stay out of my way
You dare defy, questioning me
With silence you’ll pay
Vanity, bigotry, choose your poison wise
Follow your messiah and by his sword you die!

To the last breath, I shall fight
To the last breath, no compromise
To the last breath, I will not sleep
Pain without end

Overwrought conviction
In lies which bring disease
Uninformed, shattered life
Mental tragedy
Distorted lies that you see true
The point of no return
Make believe reality
Entirely up to you

[Chorus]

Die young, die young
Commit eternal sleep
You’re stabbing in the dark
Then you blame your vague beliefs
The method of your madness is
You love to be deceived
Warped minds make damaged thoughts
Repeat after me

[Chorus]
2. Baptised by Fire (3:58)
Father can you help me now
I’ve fallen weak again
Father can you hear me now
I can’t go on

[A-CHORUS:]
Pushed to far
Meet my standards
Make them proud

Kill because I tell you to
Firstborn son
Don’t want to see no tears

[B-CHORUS:]
The dream appears
When I close my eyes
Someday that bastard dies

Son he says
You’ll be sent away
To make me proud
And to make them pay

Baptised by fire
Baptised by fire

Seems like only yesterday
I was a boy without a care
Now I got to make them pay
Or be sent home in a bag

[A+B CHORUSES]

Father tells me not to cry
You’re a man and not a boy
He tells me hold my head up high
Even when I’ve got nothing to pride

Listen to mamma boy and you’ll be weak
Do as I say and not as I do
He says it’s nothing when he needs a drink
Boy I’m a man and I made you

[A+B CHORUSES]

You’ve got no right
To send off to war
Kill or be killed
Are you proud while I’m being scarred?

They say that I’m a soldier now
Time to show your might
Feels like spending time in hell
And my mind isn’t right

Ten years later tell them I am a man
But I’m still locked away
Father says didn’t go as planned
Ashamed of me so it’s best I stay

[A+B CHORUSES]
3. Pure Blood (4:52)
March for the fatherland before there’s no hope
For the cause supremacy
Tell the young ones shape still forming thoughts
In the Fuhrer they believed

His vicious logic spreads
But still they overlooked
To late to stop it now
They succeeded once
Don’t let it happen here
Power of man can bring you down

Fight it back no matter what the price
If it means bloodshed to be free
All others taken humanity forsaken
Noble blood is what we seek

[Chorus:]
As one nation we shall rise
Control all under the sun
Divide and conquer is our cry
For the cause
Pure blood

Jack boots smash the pavement
Hear crying families never saw, never heard a thing
Spread propaganda to shield all worthless lies
In they Fuhrer they believed

His vicious logic spreads
But still they overlooked
To late to stop it now
They succeeded once
Don’t let it happen here
Power of man can bring you down

Fight it back no matter what the price
If it means bloodshed to be free
Put through crucifixion never explained detention
The dying scream as though relieved

[Chorus]

Arrived at hell on earth
Where peace is what you want
Herder like cattle never to be found
They took their pride away
Stripped life of all it’s meaning
Blatant racist tear them down

His vicious logic spreads
But still they overlooked
To late to stop it now
They succeeded once
Don’t let it happen here
Power of man can bring you down

Fight it back no matter what the price
If it means bloodshed to be free
Don’t dream of freedom, don’t speak your mind
Don’t you ever make a sound

[Chorus]

Now I lay down to sleep
They burn my bones to ash
Led to showers that rinse my soul
My shadow’s final cast
A rancid smell of rotten flesh
Covering fields of grey
Insanity is sanity
When counting numbered days

Slaughtered by the thousands
They took them one by one
Why didn’t they have a fighting chance
Racism gone too far
Preserve the noble blood
Destruction from the mind of man

His vicious logic spreads
But still they overlooked
To late to stop it now
They succeeded once
Don’t let it happen here
Power of man can bring you down

Fight it back no matter what the price
If it means bloodshed to be free
We make your destiny
We take your history
By use of force you’ll comprehend

[Chorus]
4. War Machine (5:26)
You’re no stranger
You’ve been this way before
Time and time again
For senseless reasons why
Bringer of danger
Like the scars that are left when a baby is born
You’ll taste my fire and ice

Oh! You feel me coming
As fate is knocking at your door
Ah! My burning hunger
Bringing pain for evermore

[Chorus:]
I am the war machine that stares you in the face
Eyes to the sky and you know the end is near
I am the war machine; I can burn the sun from the sky
Take away tomorrow; bring truth to all your fears

Eyes of fire
That burn with desolation
Your cries of pity cast aside
Mind of destruction
And I’ll take away all your promised dreams
You take for granted, I take for free

Oh! You feel me coming
As fate is knocking at your door
Ah! My burning hunger
Bringing pain for evermore

[Chorus]

Pray for justice
But I doubt this day will come
You feel your back against the wind
Try to fight me
So you take your sword at hand
I’m living death, oh can’t you see

Oh! You feel me coming
As fate is knocking at your door
Ah! My burning hunger
Bringing pain for evermore

[Chorus]

Raping thunder
The smell of burning bones
Not a thing for eyes to see
The stench of raging death
The vows of vengeance kept
All unlucky cannot flee

Using infra red
Attacking in the dark
Danger starts to take its toll
Blood infested soil
Encrusted fields of hate
See them die young and old

[Chorus]
5. Thunderdome (4:34)
Two men enter
One man leave

You make promises that you never keep
Seems like your only purpose in life
Is to give me grief

Crawling maggot is what you are
Always talk behind my back
Spineless one show your face
Tread on me you’ll wish you never had

[Chorus:]
I may be down
But never out
Submit to no one
Remain unbowed

Don’t turn your back
Cause I’m coming
This one’s just for you
Cause you call me nothing
Don’t turn your back
Cause I’m coming
This bullet’s got your name
And I’m gunning

I don’t know what you been told
But listen up and listen good
Keep it up with the games you play
And you know you’re bound to lose

Kindness is weakness to those
That use others for their own game

Nothing more than a parasite
Trusting done in vain

[Chorus]

Friendship is such a deadly word
Find out what it really means
I’m amused of what it’s been said
It’s off my name you feed

Two men enter
One man leave
6. Rest In Peace (6:03)
Disease ridden corpse
Half dead, half alive
Night falls, the devil calls
Shrapnel in my eyes

A torrid yell
Of war is hell
As agony prevails
A deadly mass
A sonic blast
A fog of acid rain

[Chorus:]
You’ll never come again
You want this hell to end
Your fight is to be free
So rest in peace

Asleep from all the pain
A faded memory
Safely sound to sleep
So rest in peace

With shattered minds
The thought of death comes as relief
Close your eyes and silence falls
Death is what we seek

A killing force
With no remorse
With mental health of glass
With suicide
He takes his life
Finally free at last

[Chorus]

One through the skull
Take it right through the head
A smoking gun
Smell of freedom in the air
Killing you is killing me

War, it just ain’t fair
Watch them die, one by one
And no one really cares

[Chorus]
7. Diseased Bigotry (4:48)
If you have not a fault
Then you cast the first stone
Perfect man is not
So leave us alone

Harsh reality
Self righteous holocaust
Kill those who don’t equate
Show them Pharaoh’s might

[Chorus:]
Sweet land of liberty
Spill your venom in my eyes

Take away all that’s promised
Denied birth-given rights
Land that kills any thought
Daring to be free
Righteous minds swilling poison
Distort reality
Blood is thick
Water thin
Listen (to) what I say
Born to learn unwritten law
The way to blindly hate
I am a man, call me sir
This way shall it be
This disease brings others death
Stricken down bigotry

Driving me to kill
With your Golden Rule
Terminate the ill
By injecting you

Trapped in the land of the free
Treated like second-rate
Enduring constant hell
From cradle to the grave

[Chorus]

Who gives you the right
To say I pity you
And what makes hatred live?
Hatred is you

You slip through the cracks
Cause they don’t give a damn
Father feed your child
Beg, borrow what you can

[Chorus]
8. A Soldier's Creed (4:12)
I wasn’t put hear to eat no fucking dirt
Ain’t about to kiss nobody’s ass
You pay me now cause we won’t be here later
Think for myself and you call me trash

I wasn’t put here to do your dirty work
Swallow my pride, forget it
You want my life’s work, my total dedication
Death in return, forget it

Democracy sweet sounding word
Liberty, hand to hand
Feed them lies, no body counts
Make them fight for the land

Make them think that victory’s near
Even when we fall
Let them not see the casualties
That our deceit has spawned

[Chorus:]
Believe in no one but yourself
Trust in no one cursed is man
Why must we kill?
Why must we die?
Your logic reasons make me sick
And you’ll cause man’s demise

Never will I surrender
As long as I have the will to resist
Never will I surrender
As long as breath flows through me

My country ‘tis of thee
Has fooled us once again
Believed in you and you lied to me
Running smooth as planned

You say your fight’s for freedom
Land where our fathers died
Financing justice
While unfed babies cry

[Chorus]

South of the border you pry and instigate
Looking for another war and now you’ve found the place
It’s their trouble, their beliefs then why are we involved
Seeking war with bated breath look at the damage you’ve caused
Home of the brave, land of the free
Politicians help them selves
Cause they sure not helping me

[Chorus]
9. Something Wicked (This Way Comes) (9:26)
Draw the curtain
Put out the light
Store the young ones down below
Hear the silence
Hear it scream
Anticipate the incineration

[Chorus:]
They were trusted but they’re breached
There’s a lesson we must teach
Only it’s too late
Something wicked this way comes

Air raid siren through the night
Something deathly will occur
Invasion quickly cracks the sky
It never dawned this day would come
Is the nightmare really real?
Damned to live senses numb

[Chorus]

All shall perish at your feet
Crucifixion we’ve conceived
Like a present from the sun
Something wicked this way comes

Molesting famine takes to the land
Molten tear drops from a heart of stone
Wretched injection forged from deception
Souls of wrought iron scorched to the bone

Ashes to ashes
In God we trust
Man’s power beyond control
Dust to dust
Cain kills Abel
Man will never learn
Start again, burn it down
Destroy by their control

[Chorus]
