House of the Dying Sun Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level 록스타 (2017-04-14)
1. Degeneration (4:27)
I look around myself and I see
A dying nation
Immersed in desperation
Generations haunted
By the ghosts of past

Sons and daughters infected
With the modern day plague
Of never forgetting
Only regretting
Always turning back

I look around myself and I see
A crying nation
Torn apart from degeneration
With masses fooled
By the ghosts of future

Bleeding from sutures
Of torn up wounds
Caged in sickened distorted minds
Fear the unknown
Bury the faithless
Burn the witches alive

Burn the witches alive
Torch the remains of
A future worth living

Let the degenerates rise
Torch the remains of
A life worth leading

And here I stand bleeding
With my mind infected
With my heart diseased

And here I stand yeaming
With my mind infected
With my heart diseased

I look around myself and I see
A depressed nation
Led by the DeGeneration
Of sleepwalking zombies
Living on our streets and homes
How can I make a difference
How can I be someone else
In this environment filled with
The shackles of death

What if I will be just another one
What if I will stand in line
What if I can't hope
What if I can't live
What if I can't fucking hide

What if I will be just another one
What if I will stand in line
What if I will break
What if I will cry
What if I will silently die

Here we go again
Hoping-Loving-Wanting-Living
We will not ever gain
Hated-Disgraced-Torn apart
2. Like Sheep Led to Slaughter (3:43)
The herd keeps marching
The dogs keep barking
And you will never know
That all your molotows
That all the bricks you threw
Are just another power's tools
You're feeding no fire
You're fooled into fake visions
Of a revolution never to be known

Like sheep led to slaughter
There goes the march
Like sheep led to slaughter
Force fed with lies

Like sheep led to slaughter
Tear down that blindfold
Like sheep led to slaughter
There's nothing for you to die for

Standing on your barricades
Preaching your high and mighty
Slogans of your so-called revolution
Fought with no guns this time
This world is so convenient
You can sit tight after all
In the warmth of your homes
This is the revolution never to be known

Welcome to the world
Of rebels without a cause
Welcome to the world
Of empty, blinding slogans
Welcome to the world
Of the sheep led to slaughter
Welcome to the world
Of the revolution never to be known

Welcome to the world
Where the ignorant are kings
Welcome to the world
Of no real beliefs
Welcome to the world
Of the sheep led to slaughter
Welcome to the world
Of the revolution never to be known

Welcome to the world
Of sick and twisted minds
Welcome to the world
Of symbols as our gods
Welcome to the world
Of the sheep led to slaughter
Welcome to the world
Of the revolution never to be known
3. House of the Dying Sun (3:28)
There is a house in the East
They call the Dying Sun
And it's been the ruin of many poor boys
And god wouldn't know who's the one

Only if god existed
To hear your prayers that
Fell upon deaf ears
Among the bitter and the hated
Among the starving eyes and sickened minds

'Cause baby there is no god
Among the merciless
And there's nowhere left to turn to
Among the ruins of a paradise
With shackles still to break

There is a house in the East
They call the Dying Sun
And it's been the ruin of many poor boys
And I know I might be just one

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on train
I'm running as far as I can
To get rid of that ball and chain

That ball and chain to
Infect a dying nation
Left without inspiration
Gathering like vultures
To the funeral bells
Of what once was hope

And you can wait for your
Angels to fall from heaven
Showing compassion
For your crying nation

But who would give a dime
For the scavengers who
Dug a hole to hope
And buried it deep
While fighting over bones
4. I Am Faithless, I Am the Misanthrope (3:29)
I have lost my faith in the human race
I have lost my way in this human maze
Of endless hypocrisy and lies
Sucking up and stomping down

Where do I turn when there's no one left to believe in
Where do I turn when there's no place left to hide

I have lost my faith in the human grace
I have lost my hope in this dying age
Of values turned upside down
In this age of snakes among us

I have lost my faith - my faith
I have lost my way - my way
I am the faithless, I am the misanthrope
I am the pariah, I despise you all

I am the faithless, I am the misanthrope
I am the godless creature of dying hope

I am the merciless, I am the ticking bomb
I am the fear and horror invading your homes

I have lost my faith in the human kind
I have lost my sight among the blind
I have lost my sense of mind
I am just like you, I am bound to survive

I am bound to survive
There's no place left to hide

I am the faithless, I am the misanthrope
I am the faithless, I am the misanthrope
5. Moondeath (2:59)
We the dead - risen back to life
We the dead - in tear of rage
We the dead - risen back to life
We the dead - we are the new age

Awoken to a new dawn
We have risen back to life
The endless nights are fading
In these charming big city lights

With every drop of blood
With every breath we take
We thirst for the coming of a new age

With every beat of the heart
With every drop a sweat
Our eyes drown in tears of rage

No longer stripped and messed
No longer bound by chains
No longer fighting over the crumbs like rats
No longer immersed in pain

I am no longer bound by chains
I am no longer immersed in pain
I am no longer bound by chains
I am no longer immersed in pain
6. The Spirit Burial Ground (4:07)
As we walk through the ashes of our existence
All our hopes lay shattered
As we dance in the flames of this dying world
Grasping for one last breath
To find meaning and understanding
To find comfort
To reap the seeds we have sowed
In hope of better days to come

As we've torn up these scars
Of the plague you have brought upon
Our spirits lay down buried
In dead abd sterile grounds
To keep us locked away
From sanity
To keep us locked away
From integrity

Left to crawl
stigmatized
Hung to dry
To watch reasoning die

As we crawl through the ruins of a life
That could have been worth living
As we chose to fight to
Make the difference

That could have been worth giving
Up our lives for
To carry the disease in our hearts and our minds
Disconnected, disrespected
Humiliated, torn apart
Stigmatized, hung to dry
Bleed to death, left to starve

As I bleed out from thousand wounds
The world is passing by
Can I still make a difference
Do I still know what is right

Curse the day I was born
With a conscience
Curse the day I opened my eyes
Curse the day I realized what it meant
To see the dead flooding around
Curse the day I realized what it meant
To be painful by being alive
Curse the day I saw myself trapped
In the spirit burial ground
7. Ghosts and Thieves (4:38)
Our ways are paved between
The ghosts of past and the thieves of future
Can you feel the weight of life
When yours is at stake

Can you feel the need to live
Trapped in between ghosts and thieves
Can you feel the urge to breathe
Caught up in smoke and flames

Our ways- our ways are paved
Between ghosts and thieves
Our ways- our ways are paved
Between loss and grief
Our ways- our ways are paved
Between ghosts and thieves
Our ways- our ways are paved
Between loss and grief

This is not a cry for help
This is me taking an oath to live
This is me taking back what you stole from me
This is me fighting back your ghosts
This is me standing back up on my feet

What is the purpose
What is the weight of life
Whats waiting but death at the end of the road
What is the wight of life

What shall we do not to de ghosts and thieves
What shall we do not to be ghosts and thieves
8. When There's Nothing Left to Die For (3:43)
When there's no air left to breath in
When there's no place left to lay our heads
Our bodies soaking wer and bleeding
our hearts yearning, our minds dreaming
Of a place worth dying for
Of a heritage of something new
In this wasteland of something borrowed, something blue

What will I leave behind
When there's nothing
Out there that I can call mine

What will I be proud of
When there's nothing
Out there that I could die for

When there's no bridges left to burn
When there's nothing left for sale
our bodies sucked dry
Our hearts bleeding, our minds tricked
With the images of a future
Where's nothing worth to strive for
Where's nothing worth to die for

When there's nothing left to die for
Then we never made an impact
When there's nothing left to die for
Then we have never lived
When there's nothing left to die for
Then there's no heritage
When there's nothing left to die for
Then there's no war, there's no peace

There's no one left to fight
There's no one left in sight
There's no enemy left but the ones the mirror reflects

There's no one to make a difference
There's no one left to blame
But us all, but us all, but us all for giving up in vain

What will I leave behind
When there's nothing
Out there that I can call mine

What will I be proud of
When there's nothing
Out there that I could die for
9. The Young and the Restless (4:48)
In this cultural wasteland
What is left for the young and the restless
What is left among your billboard lies
Among your golden prison bars
Among your nicely dressed generation of
Sleepwalking living dead
Wrapped up in shining cells

In this cultural wasteland
What is left for you and me
Where can we scream
Where can we breath
Where can we be free

We are the generation of hope
We are the generation of stories untold
We are the scum of this earth
We are the rats giving birth
To the nightmares of your world

We see with clear eyes
We fell with full hearts
We are the generation buried alive
We are the generation pushed aside

And times will come
When there's no one left to protect you
When the peripheral will have their way
When the castaways will flood your streets
With something to say
When the buried alive
Will rise from their graves
When the young and the restless
Will embrace their hate
