Dark Sermon : In Tongues

歌词


1. THE SHEPHERD'S STAFF

White my tongue, spitting forth the blood of the angels as they weep and moan

I know this is the devil's work
The Sheppard's staff holds more in faith than any sheep alone
I know this is the devil's work
Tie my idle hands so they may never sin again

The darkest of sermons is preached to an unwilling crowd of men on their knees
Muttering false words of praise

To an unloving glorified entity
I will endure the gnashing of teeth
I will wade through the depths of despair and endless suffering
I pray to avert my ears but it seems that no one is listening

Abandoned by god, my purpose is clear
I exist to rid the earth of every trace of the living

Possessed by the reigning king of falsehood and resentment
Driven to exterminate all that breathes

Possessed by the reigning king of falsehood and resentment
If this is his will, and god stands still...

This child of hell shall force its home upon the earth
I witness its unfortunate birth

Tie my idle hands so they may never sin again
Cut out my lying tongue and remove these thoughts within

Possessed by the reigning king of falsehood and resentment
Driven to exterminate all that breathes

Possessed by the reigning king of falsehood and resentment
If this is his will, and god stands still...

Possessed by the reigning king of falsehood and resentment
If this is his will, and god stands still...

My life was never meant to be


2. IMPERFECT CONTRITION

They eyes of the heavenly father rest heavily upon my chest
I can feel their judging gaze piercing through my flesh
I stab at my reflection hoping to end it all
I don't recognize the man that I see, but from what I can recall

I have lived a life of shame and self-disgust
The eyes of the heavenly father rest heavily upon my soul
I hate myself and the things that I've done
And the life I've been forced to endure(forced to endure)
I abhor the man I've become

These hands have carried out the evilest of deeds
This mind has been occupied and demonized by an entity that this earth has never seen
On my innocence it feed

Through the fire and brimstone it leads
I reflect on the years of my life with great disdain
I cant claim a life of virtue
Myself I'd sooner maim

I refuse to walk on
Continue broken and bent
I feel remorse for the life that I've lived
All I can do is repent

For he carries with him pestilence and famine
For restitution I plead(repent)
For restitution I plead
Repent


3. HOUNDS

We are the false prophets,
The kings of sin.
We will rest when your Mother Earth is barren.

Hounds from Hell.

We are the final judgement,
The divine apocalypse.
We will rest when your Mother Earth
Slits her wrists.

Arise, from the ashes of Hell be born!
For her lies, let her soul from flesh be torn.

We bathe her in desolation,
For she deserves to rot.
She tied the noose herself,
We just tightened the knot.

We watch as the earth goes up in flames,
Destruction courses through our veins!

We are the nameless demons,
The hounds from Hell.

We watch as the earth goes up in flames,
Destruction courses through our veins!

We are the hounds
Lapping up the blood of an innocent world.

An innocent world

Hounds, hounds from hell!


4. THE SCALES OF JUSTICE

I want to burn disgust
Into the heart of every man
I will uproot the tree of life
From the soil of the holy land
I want to desecrate
Everything pure
I will tear down the walls of the chapels
That promised the troubled a cure

You swine, you filthy race of heathens and bastards
You deserve only the most cruel and torturous of fates
I will single-handedly bring about the demise of this wretched planet
You call your home

I want to do things to this earth
That would make the sky
Swallow itself in fear
I want to make the world regret (Regret)
I want to make the world regret (Regret)

I want to force shards of broken glass
Down society's throat
I want to watch the world I've come to know
Writhe and choke
I want to do things to this earth
That would make the sun freeze over in misery

This is my threat
To all of mankind
This is the day of judgement
May you be left behind

The world will suffer
At the hands of the chosen one

Never before have the kingdoms of Heaven and Earth witnessed such violence,
Such force, such swift justice
The entire human race will kneel and weep and beg for
His mercy
But He will ignore their pleas and slaughter them all


5. CURSED

The hands of my mistakes
Claw at my eyes and mouth
They won't let me go
And they never will

The more I struggle
The deeper I sink
Into this sea of writhing blackness
I am filled with spite
For me and only me
I wish death upon
Only the man in the mirror

I wish I could take back
Every year I've lived
Every choice I've made

The more I struggle
The deeper I sink
Into this sea of writhing blackness
Their putrid limbs
Slither around me
I am entangled in their wretched grip

I curse my life (I curse my life)
With every breath that I breathe (Breath that I breathe)
I curse my life (I curse my life)
With every word that I speak (Word that I speak)

I am cursed, I am damned
Cursed
Damned
Cursed
Damned
I am cursed, I am damned

I have made my home here
Among the dead
I have made my home here
Among the dead (Dead)
I have made my home here
Among the-
We've been waiting for you
Where have you been
I have made my home here
Among the dead


6. FORFEIT I: THE CROOKED QUILT

The tremendous weight of my burdened past
Has become too much to bear
How heavy the pen grows with each stroke
When the words will never be shared

Bury me with my crooked quill
Let us weep and mourn alone
As for the volumes of texts over which I have slaved
May they be burnt and forgotten

All these pages I've written for no one
I'll be long gone before they're ever read
There is no hope
No belief in salvation
And I've grown too tired to care
I've found that
There is no point
No greater purpose
We were all designed to fail

Bury me with my crooked quill
Let us weep and mourn alone
As for the volumes of texts over which I have slaved
May they be burnt and forgotten

I want to be rid of my life
And everything I've ever felt
If you won't take it from me, God
I'll take it from myself

This is for the friends who act as foes
This is my resignation from the human race
This is for the family that betrays
This is my resignation from the human race
This for the world that turned it's back
This is my resignation from the human race

This is my resignation from the human race


7. FORFEIT II: WORN THIN

And all I see are flaws
In the ones I claim to love
My heart is as cold and dead
As the eyes watching me from above

This cruel world emptied me out
Then buried what was left
Hollow and broken
A sinner like the rest

My body is falling apart
And my mind is even worse
I can't keep living this
My existence is a curse

God is laughing
I can hear it in my sleep
Black spills from these wounds
He carves so deep

Trial and tribulations
Have worn me thin
No body, just brittle bones
Crudely wrapped in tattered skin

And in my head
Is a voice that says
I'm a waste of life (I'm a waste of life)
I'm better off dead
And in my head
Is a voice that says
I'm a waste of life (I'm a waste of life)
I'm better off dead

I am a waste of life
I'm better off dead
I am a waste of life
I'm better off dead

But I'm as dead as I'll ever be
But I'm as dead as I'll ever be


8. THE TREE OF NEW LIFE

I drag behind me a rope
So laden with sorrow
That I can barely take another step
Without falling to my knees

I drag it in the dirt
My feet kick up dust as my rope settles it
I seek no answers
Only peace

In the distance
There is a single tree
Salvation
The rope must meet the branch
The rope must meet the branch

I have traveled from afar
I am weary, but I must keep my pace
The rope must meet the branch
In the same way it has met my neck

I will earn my death
I will earn my death
I will earn my death

You cannot deny me the right to take my own life
I will earn my death
I refuse to be robbed of my own suicide


9. CARCASS

I wish I could be blind to the evils of this world
But one cannot unlearn the truth

One cannot erase the accounts of the damned
The tales of corrupted youth
These images are burned into my brain
Of the sick, the dark, and depraved
When the time comes to claim the dead
Not a single soul will be saved

You each have played your part in this
Piece by piece, you wore her away
She is no longer a loving mother
We inhabit a cold shell
A rotten carcass

Maggots squirm and eat away
At what remains of a formerly fruitful harvest
Her hair, no longer vibrant and soft
Now dry and knotted and weak
Her skin, now as pale as the moon
Whose tears roll down her cheek

You have caused this tragedy
This untimely end of a beautiful life
Undeserving swine
You wretched race
You murderous heathens of malice and spite

A clean slate will restore her beauty
A lifeless world is a world of worth
A clean slate will restore her beauty
A lifeless world is a world of worth

I am the pale horse, and he who rode upon it
I am the plague that will cleanse the earth


10. TESTAMENT

Sacrilegious and unholy
My hand continues
To feverishly scrawl words
I would never dream of speaking
Onto scarred and bleeding parchment
I am torn
Between the kingdoms of Heaven and Hell

Quartered by angels and demons
My shredded flesh rests in heaps
Pecked at by doves and crows alike

My very soul is oppressed
For this battle is far from over
There is no devil on my shoulder
For He has comfortably made
His home inside of me

Unsuccessful exorcisms
Are attempted in vain
For a tortured soul
I remain

I am but a vessel
An extension of His blackened sway
Imprisoned in my own mind
Held at knifepoint and forced to transcribe

His will
His wicked word
His will
His wicked word

I frantically whisper prayers to God
When I find myself alone
But the malicious one
He will soon return
He will soon return

I frantically whisper prayers to God
When I find myself alone
But the malicious one
He will soon return
And I will meet punishment


11. IN TONGUES

My still tongue in a straight jacket
Bursts at the seams with troubles untold
For I am weak, my shriveled lungs let out
Their final screams in vain and
Grow cold

In this frenzy of frantic voices
I need only to silence my own
They speak, they speak in tongues

In the basement of my mind
I am shackled to
All of the things that I tried to forget
The cuffs write in red on my paper skin

A knock at the door
Is to be ignored
The voices told me
"Don’t let anyone in"

You are safer now than ever before
Here with us underground
As for the many who will beckon
Make no exceptions

The one who knocks
He will lead you astray
With false hope and promises
You will be tested, but falter not
We will protect you from the unsound

Only we know the truth
Speak only the words that we approve

Be bathed in the darkness
Banish the light
For He who 'saved' you
Is the Devil Himself

Be bathed in the darkness
Banish the light
For He who 'saved' you
Is the Devil Himself"

Take
Me
I am weak

I pledge my
Allegiance
To
The priest of
Loathing and despair

I pledge my
Allegiance
To His unholy name:
Baphomet

This is my testament
To the unholy
I have seen the black prince
He is unwavering

This is my testament
To the unworthy
I have seen the darkness
It has enveloped me
