Touching the Void Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Rousseau (2016-07-24)
1. Habemus Papam (4:37)
A piece from here, a piece from there
They don't fit? They will. Time will show.
Hate, love, they copulate. Time is of no importance.
Before him they all bow. He's hungry, he wants more.

Nobody here remembers the beginning
To ask is to be condemned. Blasphemer

Look at these, all these altars
All this blood, hear all those screams
The dark cave you were born in
The dark cave will take your life

Once hunger, cold nights, wild beasts
And today, a golden throne, might and splendour
Come to me!
Let me show you my growing love!

The wounds, they are reopening and blood's gushing again
You are being punished just because you were called to live

Habemus Papam!
2. The Journey (4:54)
The sun has gone down

Do you remember
those nights of merry music?
Do you remember
that smell of burning flesh?
Do you remember
those screams of slaughtered people?
Do you remember
when you outwitted death?

Your enemy out there the rifle in your hand now you or him
Get up and charge!
No time to fear you have been there there is no turning back
You're down, you're bleeding now

Forget your home
Leave the tombstones
There's someone else
The music's on

Some others try
To kill your mind
But they all fail
You know they lie

Behold your home
Enemies gone
Days when you laugh
Days when you mourn

The heart's too weak
No words to speak
Still you have them
No time to sleep

Look here
I've got
A rope
Now you decide
3. Event Horizon (4:06)
I won't get out
It is too late
My body is spinning around

I caught one last glimpse of the world
Where I am never to return to
Because darkness is calling me
And it's always jealous

“Abandon all hope
Ye who enter here.”

There's nothing I can do
Now everything is blurred
I am about to see
The den where demons dwell

I am
Spinning
Faster

There is
No way
To stop

I'm almost out of strength
The beasts are closing in
Manhunt has begun
Unleashed are all my fears

I am
Spinning
Faster

There is
No way
To stop

The walls are crumbling
The blood still running

No matter if it's day or night
The evil work is being done
4. Deus Vult (4:40)
"This is the end!” Someone's proudly announced
But some things do not change
And some creatures won't die

Deeper than you dare
To dig in the grave
Unknown
Unseen

Seems that eternity can't do without
A name or a face
Or its worshippers' bows

Another time
Another place
Another you
The same old ways

Enjoy your life 'cos soon you're gonna weep
Await your fate, it's coming your way
You are
On the list

You'd better learn how to survive
Prepare your senses for the horror to come
Welcome
To the past

You move the beads hoping for help
“When did it come to this?”
Where are
They from?

One thing before you go to judge and hate
I've got a piece of news for you
You are
One of them
5. In Love (5:33)
I
I'm here

You've finally come!

I've been waiting here for years
Go, come and touch me how
Hard, stiff and cold I am
It's all for you
Embrace me with your thighs

Forget the world, let it burn
You know the harm it does
But now it's only you and I
It's all for you
Embrace me with your thighs

People say I'm not alive but you know well that it's not true
They will never hear my voice and they will never hear yours too

You're finally here!

I've been waiting here for years
Go, come and touch me how
Hard, stiff and cold I am
It's all for you
Embrace me with your thighs

Forget the world, let it burn
You know the harm it does
But now it's only you and I
It's all for you
Embrace me with your thighs

People say I'm not alive but you know well that it's not true
They will never hear my voice and they will never hear yours too

But now you're calm, the world could not exist
My skin is cold, I know, but you don't mind
I feel your breasts, they're rising up and down
Your nipples are almost as hard as I am
I feel you there, more ready you won't be

Take me now
Take what you want
You're in command
Sweating

People say I'm not alive but you know well that it's not true
They will never hear my voice and they will never hear yours too
6. Hallowed Be Thy Name (4:08)
From all around the world they're slithering my way
The mournful cries to poison my mind
Can you hear them? No, I'm “the chosen one”
So tired but there is much more to come

Whispers - sad stories about me
Laughter - my new life's melody

I do not care for light since it can't help me see
Hope's just a word, the ocean has dried out
I lie on the ground, just like a roadkilled dog
But his damn fire still burns

Whispers - sad stories about me
Laughter - my new life's melody

My world is dead
My faith is gone
My future's lost
What's going on?

My world is dead
See its pieces for yourselves
My faith is gone
Just emptiness in my soul
My future's lost
I cannot find myself there
What's going on?
When did the slaughter begin?

Access denied - not any more
The path to the past is open again
Digitally remastered memories
Seems like it was yesterday

When it is time
To lay my head and take a rest
Somewhere out there
A show's being prepared
Nowhere to run
The door is locked
Chained to those days
I cannot move
7. Death Mills (5:41)
They are here
The engine is stopping
This is where their journey ends
Behind the door lots of
Uncertainity
The eyes between the boards
Looking for a clue
The stinking cargo
Ready to be unloaded

On this sunny day
Some go to the right
On this sunny day
Some go to the left
On this sunny day
Some start their new lives
The nearby river hears everything

On this sunny day
Their god is somwhere else
On this sunny day
There's no such thing as hope
On this sunny day
The prayers won't be answered
The nearby river hears everything

Their lives
Meaningless
They're here
To be killed
Their souls
Almost dead
They still
Want to live
That damn
Smoke out there
“Are they
Really free?
Is it
Possible
Am I
Here to die?”

It's been some time
The bones are hardly heard
The fire will burn again
It's just a matter of time
8. Hear Our Cries (4:12)
And here I am
My blood is boiling
I'm so afraid of the path
That lies before me
And what scares me the most
Is that it looks so easy
Trapped in freedom
Caught in reality

Am I sane
That I do
Not want to
Go there?

And here I am
My blood is boiling
Soon I will become
a beacon they'll all notice
No fear, no doubt, they're gone
I'll never be a slave
The crawling demons cannot crush
what is not made of flesh

Am I sane
That I gladly
Want to go
This way?

The time has come
I'm going there
It all starts here
No looking back

I cannot die
More than one time
Enough of this!
Let there be light!
9. The Temptation (1:52)
10. Touching the Void (4:33)
One more step
One more breath
Can you feel the weight?
You can touch your fear

And now you are here
Standing on the edge of the cliff
Are you alone
Or there is someone lurking in the dark?
Your soul is howling
Like never before
Your heart is pounding
Because the hounds of hell
Are coming after you

One more step
One more breath
Can you feel the weight?
You can touch your fear

Will you take this one more step
It isn't easier even though
You have very little to lose
It isn't even easier
When there is no turning back
And here it is warm
And there it may be cold
And here there is light
And there it may be dark

The sun
Is mocking at you
The rain
Reminds you of something
You are
Looking for someone
But now
You're way too far

Will you dare
To touch the void?
Will you dare
To enter the void?
