The Rise of Chaos Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles (2017-08-05)
1. Die by the Sword (5:00)
The world around us, frozen in terror
The balance of power, a thing of the past
Anything human has been abandoned
We're just drowning souls in a river of blood

What was built up in thousands of years
In just a moment is destroyed
Have we lost all compassion and love
Cast our souls into the void

If you live by the sword - you will die by the sword
If you live by the sword - you will die by the sword

We're sinking deeper in a world of darkness
It's kill or be killed from the day we are born
We're an evil seed from the soul of a serpent
An evil breed in a valley of thorns

What was built up in thousands of years
In just a moment is destroyed
Have we lost all compassion and love
Cast our souls into the void

If you live by the sword - you will die by the sword
If you live by the sword - you will die by the sword

Blood and vengeance, iron and bone
Fallen warriors, carved in stone

Crush this mindless desire for blood
And stop this endless crusade
Sonquer our instincts and lay down the steel
Save our children from the blade

If you live by the sword - you will die by the sword
If you live by the sword - you will die by the sword
2. Hole in the Head (4:01)
I need you like a prison term, likea a ball and chain
like a spike into my brain, you're a rope around my neck
You're a leech that won't let go, a bitch that just says no
And you leave me only wanting more

I've tried so hard to quit you, you're the monkey on my back
A life controlling money pit, you turn my whole world black

I need you... like a hole in the head
I need you... like a hole in the head

I need you like a rotting core, like a crippling disease
Like a whore that does not please, you're an evil parasite
You're a dog who's had his day, I've got to walk away
Before it all comes crashing down

You're a handfull of addiction, my antagonistic sin
You take it all, give nothing back, I can't let you win

I need you... like a hole in the head
I need you... like a hole in the head

You seduced me like a vampire, you're a curse to all mankind
A self-inflicted kiss of death, how could I be so blind

I need you... like a hole in the head
I need you... like a hole in the head
I need you... like a hole in the head
I need you... like a hole in the head
3. The Rise of Chaos (5:16)
Everybody's out to get me
This new world's trying to take me down
Break free but it won't let me
Right now there's only one way out

All fight for survival
In this apocalyptic maze
Caught in a downward spiral
Right through a cataclysmic blaze

All hell around you
Just a continual descent
Bedlam sorrounds you
It's the beginning of the end

It's the rise of chaos
The rats will rule this sinking ship
The rise of chaos
Surrender your souls and come to grips

No rules, laws or borders
Killing for guns and gasoline
This is the new world order
A blackened future unforeseen

All hell around you
Just a continual descent
Bedlam sorrounds you
It's the beginning of the end

It's the rise of chaos
The rats will rule this sinking ship
The rise of chaos
Surrender your souls and come to grips
4. Koolaid (4:58)
Running through the jungle
Way back in '78
Here's the story of the people's temple
And my great escape
Communing with a madman
The promise of utopia
White nights, suicide drills
Shades of things to come

He said

We're gonna mix it up
Add the cyanide
Then we'll drink it up
You're gonna feel so fine

I said

Don't drink the Koolaid
Don't taste the holy water
Don't drink the Koolaid
No matter what the preacher - what the preacher says

The day of disaster struck
The murders did begin
His sheep drank it willingly
While mothers force fed their kin
33 escaped this hell
Some would call it fate
That's how I lived to tell the tale
About the day he mixed the grape

He said

We're gonna mix it up
Add the cyanide
You better drink it up
You're gonna get so high

Don't drink the Koolaid
Don't taste the holy water
Don't drink the Koolaid
No matter what the preacher says

Don't drink the Koolaid
Don't you down the holy water
Don't drink the Koolaid
Don't believe a word he says

Most of the congregation
900 dead
Jones found his own way out
A bullet to the head

Don't drink the Koolaid
Don't you taste the holy water
Don't drink the Koolaid
No matter what the preacher says

Don't drink the Koolaid
I won't down the holy water
Don't drink the Koolaid
No matter what the preacher - what the preacher says
5. No Regrets (4:20)
I've loved and lost and I've fought and won
Taken my time, been under the gun
I've come up short, taken too long
I've made mistakes, but I've never been wrong

Sometimes the pleasure isn't worth the pain it brings
But in the end l wouldn't change a thing

I've got no regrets ... No regrets

I've been at war and I've prayed for peace
I've done my time and I've been released
I've walked the line, been out on a ledge
I've hugged the curves and gone over the edge

I've seen fame, misfortune, love and pain
But one thing still remains the same

Nothing to forget ... no regrets
I'd do it all again

Sometimes the pleasure isn't worth the pain it brings
But in the end l wouldn't change a thing

I've got no regrets ... No regrets
Nothing to forget ... I've got no regrets
I'd do it all again, no regrets
6. Analog Man (4:10)
I was born in a cave, when stereo was all the rage
Gatefold vinyl and eight tracks ruled the world
Now there's flat screens in 3D
My cell phone's smanter than me
I can't keep up, my brains are beginning to burn

Update and download
There's no winning, just insanity
Update and download
The wheel keeps spinning, just set me free

I'm an analog man... analog man
I'm an analog man, trapped in a digital world
I am an analog man... analog man
An analog man, in a digital world

I keep surfing with the crowd, my information's on a cloud
My profile gets hacked almost everyday

Update and download
There's no winning, just insanity
Update and download
The wheel's still spinning, just let me be

I'm an analog man... analog man
I'm an analog man, trapped in a digital world
I am an analog man... analog man
just an old school son of a bitch... in this digital hell

Don't need no wifi, just want my hi-fi
Don't need no data plan
Computers crashing, I want to smash 'em
I just don' t understand

Update and download
There's no winning, just insanity
Update and download
Damn wheels still spinning, somebody set me free

Analog man... analog man
i'm an analog man, in a digital world
Analog man... analog man
I'm an analog man, dying in a digital world
7. What's Done Is Done (4:08)
So you gave it all you had, things just didn't turn out
Like you thought they would
Yes you wanted it so bad, you'd do things different next time
If you only could

Don't look back it's just a shadow
Don't look back it's in the past

What is done is done... the bullet's left the gun
What is done is done when the bullet's left the gun
What is done is done, it's over, you can't unring the bell

You know the past is just a tale
Gone beneath the bridge but still you live in chains
Yes you've hammered out the nail
Now you've come to find that still the hole remains

Don't look back it's in the shadows
Don't look back just let it go

What is done is done... the bullet's left the gun
What is done is done when the bullet's left the gun
What is done is done, it's over, you can't unring the bell

What is done is done... the bullet's left the gun
What is done is done when the bullet's left the gun
What is done is done, it's over, you can't unring the bell

What is done is done... and now it's over
What's done is done, no you can't unring the bell
When the bullet's left the gun
8. Worlds Colliding (4:28)
Here it comen straight down the barrel
Thru the bone right to the metal
I can feel it pierce my very soul
Who is the slave, who is the master
You'll never get what you're after
It'll steal your will and leave a burning hole

Who is the man in the mirror, bringer of pain tempting and terror
Sometimes he'll rock you to the core
Wanting to do just the right thing, all alone constantly fightingt
This is it, my internal war

There's two worlds colliding, right inside of me
Two worlds colliding, I'm my own worst enemy
There's two worlds colliding, and I'm watching helplessly
How two worlds colliding, collide inside of me

Same song, another rendition
Round the bend, head on collision
Give and take, endless compromise
Run away from the temptation
Straight ahead into frustration
Like a shot right between the eyes

There's two worlds colliding, right inside of me
Two worlds colliding, I'm my own worst enemy
There's two worlds colliding, and I'm watching helplessly
How two worlds colliding, collide inside of me

Am I going crazy, have I lost my mind
Insanity enslaves me, I'm starting to unwind

It's two worlds colliding, right inside of me
Two worlds colliding, I'm my own worst enemy
There's two worlds colliding, and I'm watching helplessly
How two worlds coulliding, collide inside of me
I'ts two worlds colliding, and I'm watching helplessly
Two worlds colliding, collide inside of me
9. Carry the Weight (4:33)
Take the heat, stand the pressure, bearing a load beyond measure
Hold fast, and fight with fire, always walking the wire
Wake up, that's not the answer, it eats at your ilfe like a cancer
You want it all, can't fight the feeling
You'll never win 'cause the devil's dealing

Don't let it control you, It's dragging you down
Can't let them control you...

Don't carry the weight of the world on you shoulders
Carry the weight of the world all alone
Don't carry the weight of the world on you shoulders
Don't carry that weight, it will turn your heart to stone

On the news, another bombing, the feds can't stop global warming
Give now! Or children will die, more planes fall from the sky
Look out, floods and earthquakes, big corporations get tax breaks
The euro's down, and now there's brexit
The world is broke, and you can't fix it

Don't let it control you, It's dragging you down
Can't let them control you...

Don't carry the weight of the world on you shoulders
Carry the weight of the world all alone
Don't carry the weight of the world on you shoulders
Don't carry that weight, it will turn your heart to stone

There will be trails in your life, things you cannot control
There will be heartache and strife, don't let it tear out your soul

Don't carry the weight of the world on you shoulders
Carry the weight of the world all alone
Don't carry the weight of the world on you shoulders
Don't carry that weight, it will turn your heart to stone
10. Race to Extinction (5:24)
The time has come to visualize our greatest fears
Closer than we realize the end is near

The endangered flee from their homes you've seen the signs
Caring only for ourselves as the planet dies

Will we chance direction, will we become aware
And cure our own infection, or else beware

Is this the race to extinction... a race to the end
The race to extinction... the race to the end

Feeding greed our conservation's gone off track
Species die once they're gone they're not coming back

We can change this story, adapt and compromise
Balance is mandatory, open your eyes

Is this the race to extinction... a race to the end
The race to extinction... the race to the end

We can change this story, adapt and compromise
Balance is mandatory, open your eyes

This is the race to extinction... a race to the end
The race to extinction... the race to the end
