Shadows Fall - Threads Of Life lyrics



Tracks



01. Redemption

Intimidation, I stand before you now
Hold my ground, you won't strike me down
A validation of all the blood I spilled
Survival of my will

There's nothing left to say
Yourself you have betrayed
We must try to seize the day

All the world will hear you
Our voices can't be bound
All the world will hear you
Redemption in the power of the sound

Interpretation of all the thoughts I shared
Draw you near, creating all your fear
A brand new nation for those who persevere
The future is so clear

There's nothing left to say
Yourself you have betrayed
We must try to seize the day

All the world will hear you
Our voices can't be bound
All the world will hear you
Redemption in the power of the sound

A validation of all the blood I spilled
A validation... All your blood spilt

All the world will hear you
Our voices can't be bound
All the world will hear you
Redemption in the power of the sound

02. Burning The Lives

Soon a darkened pyramid will rise
There will be no escaping from the all seeing eye

Lost in blindness
Serving shielded masters still unknown

Chaos is their goal
Corrupt you heart and soul
The air is getting thin
Will you give in?

All the voices of the lost and forgotten
Still lay in their graves they've been silenced for their thoughts

Lost in blindness
The history is written in their blood

Chaos is their goal
Corrupt you heart and soul
The air is getting thin
Will you give in?

Burning the lives and the pride of the innocents
Tearing down all that we built!

Chaos is their goal
Corrupt you heart and soul
The air is getting thin
Will you give in?

Burning the lives and the pride of the innocents
Tearing down all that we built!

03. Stormwinds

Fighting to control my mind
But tragedy is all I find!

The panic builds up from deep within
The subconscious mind
Always thought that the pain would end
With the passage of time

No matter how many layers deep
You try to hide yourself
They will all crack and peel away
To reveal something else

From the past we must break free
Come to terms with all that tortures me

Tragic memories invade
Let the storm winds wash them all away

I will be the only one who is left to decide
There will be more that is left for compromise
Break away from the curse of man's original sin
Turn away as you stay hidden behind a twisted grin

From the past we must break free
Come to terms with all that tortures me

Tragic memories invade
Let the storm winds wash them all away
Purified I stand before the flames
As the ashes cover yesterday

Imprisoned by actions of the past
No use holding on

Tragic memories invade
Let the storm winds wash them all away
Purified I stand before the flames
As the ashes cover yesterday

04. Failure Of The Devout

I am the heir of the damned kingdom
Born into a legacy of regret
Searching for the promise of salvation
Overwhelmed by the tides of our despair

Been pulled deep into the chasm
By the grip of our desire
The grip of our desire
Must escape the weight of this depression
The choices that lead you to dismay

Who would save those who condemn themselves
Cripple!
Cripple your own savior
The failure, the failure of the devout

Set in motion by final sacrifice
Change begun in the name of righteousness
Infiltrated by greed, lust and hatred
Once more corrupted by the hands of man

Been pulled deep into the chasm
By the grip of our desire
The grip of our desire
Must escape the weight of this depression
The choices that lead you to dismay

Who would save those who condemn themselves
Cripple!
Cripple your own savior
The failure, the failure of the devout

The handsome mask of the devil
The lure of the cross!
Of the dark!

You violate the sacred with your greed
Prey upon the people's misery and needs
With your greed, with your greed, with your greed!

I am the heir of this damned kingdom
Born into a life of regret
Searching for a promise
That's no longer kept

Been pulled deep into the chasm
By the grip of our desire
The grip of our desire
Must escape the weight of this depression
The choices that lead you to dismay

Who would save those who condemn themselves
Cripple!
Cripple your own savior
The failure, the failure of the devout

05. Venomous

I only wanted to
Kill the pain and the sorrow
Instead I buried you
And killed the happiness in me

Can you hear the laughter
Coming from my grave?

Suddenly it seems to me
That I am my own worst enemy
We can never hope to breathe
In this misery

Full speed with blinders on
Never stopped to see the horror
I think you always knew
I'd drag you down to hell with me

Can you hear the laughter
Coming from my grave?

Suddenly it seems to me
That I am my own worst enemy
We can never hope to breathe
In this misery

Think of all I've said and done
All the fights I thought I won
Another scar for the chosen son
The ungodly one

How can I
Purge this venom from my veins?

Your sweetest suicide
Drags you in and flips that switch
As you fade away
With the breath of every hit

Can you hear the laughter
Coming from my grave?

Suddenly it seems to me
That I am my own worst enemy
We can never hope to breathe
In this misery

Think of all I've said and done
All the fights I thought I won
Another scar for the chosen son
The ungodly one

06. Another Lost Hero

I'll never leave you
But fate has come to silence me
Darkness is all that I see
I can not reach you
And soon the earth will cover me
It's become so hard to breathe

Forever is waiting
The final steps you're taking
Will soon be buried in the sand

All the battles they say we won
They leave another thousand lives undone
Another thousand lives undone

Forever is waiting
The final steps you're taking
Will soon be buried in the sand

You're gone, but not forgot
Another hero lost
The sorrow builds with every passing
All the lessons that you taught
And all the light you brought
Lives on in the eyes of your son

Forever is waiting
The final steps you're taking
Will soon be buried in the sand

You're gone, but not forgot
Another hero lost
The sorrow builds with every passing
All the lessons that you taught
And all the light you brought
Lives on in the eyes of your son

07. Final Call

Seeing it all
Heeding the call

Lost without hoping to be found
A willing exile, I turn away
Rather face the endless silence
Than the hopeless and fear of today

The ashes choke the sky
Death's swift hand in disguise

Awaiting the final call
No use hesitating
Are we fearful of how dark it's grown?
The emptiness surrounds

Can not believe
Refuse to think I'm on my own
Who will be cast out?

Trust in the lies that held you bound
Their twisted values lead you astray
They disgrace the world with violence
Leaving bitterness, despair and decay

The ashes choke the sky
Death's swift hand in disguise

Awaiting the final call
No use hesitating
Are we fearful of how dark it's grown?
The emptiness surrounds

Can not believe
Refuse to think I'm on my own
Who will be cast out?

Lost without hoping to be found
A willing exile, I turn away
Rather face the endless silence
Than the hopeless and fear of today

Awaiting the final call
No use hesitating
Are we fearful of how dark it's grown?
The emptiness surrounds

Can not believe
Refuse to think I'm on my own
Who will be cast out?

08. Dread Uprising

Reflecting on this life
Through the eyes of ancients
The wisdom of beyond

Chant!
Chant them down
Down into nothing
This power screams out from within
Like the trees that struggle towards the sun
Once again in due season we are reborn

Strike down the heathen
This must end

Chant!
Chant them down
Down into nothing
This power screams out from within
Swaying deeply in rhythm with the winds
There are eternal lessons within its pulse

Raising their false banners of hope
Lies everlasting
Fighting to save their self interest

Dread uprising!
An end to it all
Dread uprising!
Watch as they fall

Strike down the heathen
This must end

Chant!
Chant them down
Down into nothing
This power screams out from within

Watch as they fall
Raising their false banners of hope
Lies everlasting
Fighting to save their self interest

09. The Great Collapse

Instrumental

10. Just Another Nightmare

The echoes creep into your dreams
Torn awake from your sleep
Unholy nightmare of savagery

This can not be!
The warmth soaks into your fingers
And soothes away the pain

Franticly replay the days
The tattered clothes still drape your frame
Crimson cloaked memories
Blood soaked destiny

This can not be the way it seems
Incapable of these things
Lost hold of demons inside of me

This can not be!
The warmth soaks into your fingers
And soothes away the pain

Franticly replay the days
The tattered clothes still drape your frame
Crimson cloaked memories
Blood soaked destiny

(The damage done)
The desolation that's inside us
This violence lurks beneath the skin
(Beneath the skin)

Do not be fooled by the quiet
What I've become
This silent killer dwells within

The conclusion comes crashing in
This is happening once again!

This can not be!
The warmth soaks into your fingers
And soothes away the pain

Franticly replay the days
The tattered clothes still drape your frame
Crimson cloaked memories
Blood soaked destiny

(The damage done)
The desolation that's inside us
This violence lurks beneath the skin
(Beneath the skin)

Do not be fooled by the quiet
What I've become
This silent killer dwells within

Can it be that I am capably murderous?

(The damage done)
The desolation that's inside us
This violence lurks beneath the skin
(Beneath the skin)

Do not be fooled by the quiet
What I've become
This silent killer dwells within

Can it be that I am capably murderous?

11. Forevermore

The threads of life start to tear
Hang above the pit of our despair
It seems the end is growing near
The life you knew will disappear

Every human life will overlap and intertwine
Create the fabric and the destiny of all mankind
Start the fires till they surround
They start the fires burning until they surround

Is there nothing left
Worth fighting for?
Forevermore
Beneath the waterline
Sinking further down
I dwell in silence now

Awake and face the truth of all that you have lost
A tongue tied explanation raining down from scattered thoughts
Start the fires till they surround
They reinforce their doubts until they draw blood

Is there nothing left
Worth fighting for?
Forevermore
Beneath the waterline
Sinking further down
I dwell in silence now
Forevermore
I will leave this world behind
Finally I drown
I dwell in silence now

The threads of life start to tear
Hang above the pit of our despair
It seems the end is growing near
The life you knew will disappear

Forevermore
Beneath the waterline
Sinking further down
I dwell in silence now
Forevermore
I will leave this world behind
Finally I drown
I dwell in silence now
