Holier Than Thou
Smith - Nelson


 

IN THE BEGINNING
I TOOK THE LEAD
YOU CAN LEAVE IT UP TO ME

YOU ARE FORGIVEN
I’LL TAKE THE BLAME
YOU LIVE IN SHAME

HOLIER THAN THOU

LOCKING THE DOORS AND AVOIDING CREATION
FALLING APART AT THE SEAMS
SPREADING LIKE FIRE AND FLOWING LIKE RIVERS
NOTHING LIKE I’VE EVER SEEN
WE’RE STACKING THEM DEEP AND WE’RE STACKING THEM HIGH
THERE’S NO OTHER WAY WE KNOW NOW
WE ARE HOLIER THAN THOU

HOLIER THAN THOU

THERE IS A TIME WHEN WE LIVE FOR EVER
THE TIME IS SO SPECIAL DON’T LET IT SLIP AWAY

YOU TAKE THE HIGH ROAD
I’LL TAKE THE BLAME
YOU LIVE IN CHAINS


HOLIER THAN THOU

DANCE OF THE GOD'S
Lynch-Nelson

 

EVERYBODY IN WE’D LIKE TO MEET YOU
SIT DOWN AND WE'LL TAKE YOUR MONEY AND BEGIN
IF YOU'RE IN THE MOOD WE NEED TO FEED YOU
WE HAVE A PLAN THAT WILL EXCITE YOUR INNER MOVE

DARK SHADED EMPTY LIVESWILL BE ABUSED

WHEN YOU FEEL YOUR SOUL IS SINKIN’ WE WILL RESCUE YOU

 

DANCE OF THE GODS

 

PUT YOUR MONEY IN AND PASS IT AROUND
AND LISTEN TO THE BISHOP WITH THE DIRTY CROWN
YOU THINK HE’S SAVING YOUR SOUL BUT WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW
IT'S A PARRICIDAL DIOCESE CURRUPT AND WRONG

IT'S NOT TOO HOLY BUT YOU PLAY ALONG
YA’ KINDA LIKE THE LYRICS TO THE ANCIENT SONG
YOU START TO QUIVER WHEN THEY START TO MOAN
NOW YOUR BODIES DOING THE CATHEDRAL TWIST

 

DANCE OF THE GODS

 

NOW WAIT A MINUTE DON'T YOU LISTEN CAN YOU HERE THEM PRAY
YOU LEFT THEM HANGING AT THE ALTER NOW REPENT TODAY
DON'T YOU FEEL IT JUST A LITTLE C'MON GIVE 'EM A CHANCE
THEY LOOK UP TO YA' THE INSTRUCTOR OF THE SACRED DANCE

 

DANCE OF THE GODS

 

IT'S SOMETHING EVIL THEY'RE TAKIN EVERY PENNY FOR YOUR EVERY SIN

SHOULD BE ILLEGAL THERE'S SOMETHING EVIL AND NOTHINGS FOR FREE

MAKE BELIEVE
Lynch-Nelson

YOU BELIEVE AND THEN YOU START TO SINK
HE PICKS YOU UP, YOU START TO BELIEVE
THE MESSENGER IS COMING IN THE WIND
NOW ALL IS WELL AND YOU STOP BELIEVIN'

STOP PLAYIN’ THE ROLL
START TAKIN’ CONTROL
HE'S GONNA CATCH YOU WHEN YOU FALL

 

WHY DON'T YOU WANT ME
WHEN I'M THE ONE THAT MAKES YOU BREATHE
WHY DON'T YOU NEED ME
WHEN I’M THE ONE THAT'S MAKE BELIEVE

 

THINGS ARE BETTER THAN THEY REALLY ARE
YOU CAN ESCAPE WITH THE ART OF BELIEVIN'
PRETEND YOU TRAVEL TO A STAR
AND THRU THE JOURNEY YOUR BODY IS LEAVING

 

AND THEN YOU BEGIN TO SINK
AND THRU THE CLOUDS YOU CAN'T THINK
AND WHAT HAS HAPPENED IS LEFT THERE BELOW


THERE IS AN EVIL IN US ALL

 

WHY DON'T YOU WANT ME
WHEN YOU'RE THE ONE THAT MAKES ME BLEED
WHY DON'T YOU NEED ME
WHEN YOU'RE THE ONE THAT'S MAKE BELIEVE

START TAKIN’ CONTROL
STOP PLAYIN’ THE ROLL
CAUSE YOU ARE THE ONE
THE ONE THAT’S

MAKE BELIEVE

Vengeance

Smith-Lynch-Nelson

 

EMOTIONS ARE STIRRING AND YOU'RE TO BLAME

TWO FISTED ANGER MEANS NOTHING TO ME

NOW WALLOW IN YOUR IGNORANCE

I SIT AND STARE INTO YOUR EYES UNTIL YOU FREEZE IN YOUR DEMISE

 

I'M BACK WITH A VENGEANCE

I CAN'T TAKE ANY MORE

I'M BACK FOR THE ATTACK I'M BACK

 

WHEN YOU CHOOSE TO NOTHING

THAT'S WHEN BAD THINGS HAPPEN

 

LIVE IN A MOMENTS TIME YOU LEAVE THE PAST BEHIND

VENGEANCE IS OURS TO FIND AND WE'RE ONE STEP AWAY

 

LYING IN A POOL OF TEARS JUST MEANS YOU DROWN IN FEAR

IF YOU CAN PICK YOURSELF UP FROM IT DUST IT OFF

WE'LL CALL IT EVEN MOVE ON

 

EMOTIONS ARE STIRRING OF RETRIBUTION

TWO FISTED ANGER MEANS NOTHING TO THEM

YOU WALLOW INFLICTED IN PUNISHMENT

THEY SIT AND STARE INTO YOUR EYES UNTIL YOU FREEZE IN YOUR DEMISE

 

I'M BACK WITH A VENGEANCE

I CAN'T TAKE ANY MORE

 

LIVE IN A MOMENTS TIME AND LEAVE THE PAST BEHIND

VENGEANCE IS OURS TO FIND AND WE'RE ONE STEP AWAY

EXILE OF CAIN
Smith-Nelson

CORRUPT DESCENDANTS A LIFE OF CONTEMPTMENT A DOWNCAST OF ETERNITY

NEVER ACCEPTED A LIFE REJECTED WAS PUNISHED ETERNALLY

LIVING IN EXILE CONDEMED AND BANISHED TO WANDER INTO NIGHT

 

AND FOR HIS BROTHER HE WILL PAY

PUNISHED FOR LIFE EXILE OF CAIN

 

CORRUPTING OF DESCENDANDTS WITH A LIFETIME OF CONTEMPTMENT

AND HE WAS A DOWNCAST FOR ETERNITY

HE WILL NEVER BE ACCECTED FROM THE LIFE HE WAS REJECTED

AND PUNISHMENT WILL BE ETERNALLY

 

LIVING IN EXILE CONFINED AND BANISHED TO WANDER INTO DARK

TOURTURED AND ANGUISHED THE PAST HAS BEEN WASTED

HE WALKS ALONE INTO THE NIGHT

THE FIRE IS RISING HIS SOUL IS DEMISING NOT ABLE TO BE IN THE LIGHT

 

FOR HIS BROTHER HE WILL PAY

THERE WILL NEVER BE A DAY THAT HE'LL EVER SEE THE LIGHT

AND ON THE DAY THAT HE WAS BORN AND FOREVER THEY'LL BE TORN

BETWEEN WHAT IS WRONG OR WHAT IS RIGHT

 

TOURTURED AND ANGUISHED HIS PAST HAS BEEN WASTED

HE WALKS ALONE INTO THE NIGHT

THE FIRE IS RISING HIS SOUL IS DEMISING NOT ABLE TO BE IN THE LIGHT

AND FOR HIS BROTHER HE WILL PAY PUNISHED FOR LIFE EXILE OF CAIN

CREATURE
Johnson - Nelson

GIVING SERMON'S ON THE BACK OF THE BUS
TRADING PATIENCE WITH A PERSONAL LUST
PASS THE GOBLET OF PURE NATURES WINE
SAY IT'S NOT YOURE'S YOU KNOW IT'S MINE

THERE'S NO TOMORROW WERE HOVERING FAST
YOU PASS OUT AND YOU JUST LAUGH
THE NIGHT IS YOUNG AND WE GOTTA SERVE
OFF TO THE FIRMAMENT AWAY FROM THIS EARTH

CREATURE LIVES AMONG THE MOUNTAIN SIDE
PREACHER LET THE CHILDREN LIE
TEACHER TAKE ME THERE ETERNAL LIFE
MEET YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE

AND AS YOU SURFACE IT'S STARTS TO BE CLEAR
WHY YOU CAME AND WHY YOU ARE HERE
THE PAST WAS WRITTEN FOR YOU NOT TO FALL
PART OF THE PLAN TO STRENGTHEN IT ALL

THIS IS WHAT YOU SEE WHEN YOU RIDE
ONE WAY NON-STOP TICKET IT TO THE LIGHT
IT’S ALL DOWN THERE FOR US ALL THE VIEW
IF YOU EARN THE SEAT OF THE FEW

(IT'S SIMPLE HERE - NOTHING LIKE I'VE EVER SEEN)

GIVING SERMON'S ON THE BACK OF THE BUS
PASS THE GOBLET OF PURE NATURES WINE

MORNING STAR
Smith - Nelson

HE WAS BORN UNDER THE SON
AND EVERYONE FROM THEN LOOKED ON
AND THE WATER THAT HE DRANK
WAS HOLY WITH ORIGINAL STAIN

FROM ABOVE THE SHINING ONE
THE SUN AND THE MORNING STAR
LEAPED THRU TIME AGAINST THE ODDS
AND NOW HIS TIME IT HAS COME

MORNING STAR
YOU'VE BEEN TO HEAVEN
AND YOU RANG ALL THE BELL'S
MORNING STAR
WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME
HOW TO STAY OUTA’ HELL

MORNIG STAR
FALLEN ANGEL
IN THE END HE WILL NOT PREVAIL
(HE'S FALLEN, AHHH)

GOT TO HEAVEN AND SENT TO HELL
FALLING ONE WILL NOT PREVAIL
FALLING STAR
YOU ARE FAR
FROM WHO WE ARE
MORNING STAR

SPANNED TIME AND PREACHED TO NONE
AND NOW THE BATTLE IS WON

MORNING STAR
YOU'VE BEEN TO HEAVEN
NOW YOUR RINGING THE BELL
MORNING STAR
WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME
HOW TO STAY OUTA’ HELL

MORNING STAR
YOU ARE FAR
FROM WHO WE ARE

CHOSEN ONE
Smith-Nelson


 

THE EVIL IS RISING THE ELDERS LOSING GRIP
THE CHILDREN ARE WORRIED THERE'S NO ONE TO FORGIVE
INTO THE MIGHTY WATER THEY WILL BE THRASHED AND TORN
AND LAY ALONE IN THE LIGHT OF THE MOON

IN THE MORNING THEY WILL SACRIFICE TO LIVE FOREVER AND EVER
AND CHOOSE A LIFE TO LIVE IN PARADISE

(I AM THE CHOSEN ONE) AND NOW THE ANGELS FALLEN
THE CHOSEN ONE IS CALLED
(I AM THE FATHERS SON) CREATIONS FLOWIN' OUTA ME
(YOU TRY TO DENY BUT YOUR THE EVIL ONE)
(I AM THE CHOSEN ONE) AND AS THE TIME KEEPS ROLLIN
AND HOPE AND DREAMS ARE DONE
(I HAVE AN ANGELS TOUNGE) WE CALL OUT TO THE CHOSEN ONE
(THERE'S ONLY ONE WAY THAT YOU CAN BE FREE)

THE TORTURE IS OVER AND THE DEMONS RELEASED
THE CHILDREN LIE VUNERABLE IN THERE DREAMS
INTO THE NIGHT THEY WILL FIND THEM CRUSHING THEIR SOULS INTO DUST
LEAVING BEHIND THEIR SHADOWS IN THE DUSK

IN THE MORNING THEY WILL SACRIFICE TO LIVE FOREVER AND EVER
AND CHOOSE A LIFE TO LIVE IN PARADISE

AND NOW THE ANGELS FALLEN THE CHOSEN ONE IS CALLED
CREATIONS FLOWIN' OUTA ME

I AM THE CHOSEN ONE AND I TALK TO THE DEVIL WITH AN ANGELS TOUNGE
(I AM THE CHOSEN ONE) YOU TRY TO DENY BUT YOUR THE EVIL ONE
(I AM THE CHOSEN ONE) AND AS THE TIME KEEPS ROLLIN
AND HOPE AND DREAMS ARE GONE
(I AM THE FATHERS SON) WE CALL OUT TO THE CHOSEN ONE
INTO THE MIGHTY WATER WE'LL BE THRASHED AND TORN

FALLEN ARMOR
Johnson- Nelson

 

FORGED BY THE DESPERATE SOULS ASSASSIN CREED

SCATTERED ACROSS THE REALM IN THE TOURMENT OF HADES

WHERE THE EMBERS OFTEN LINGER

GIVE THE WARMTH OF AFTER BURN

LOOKING FOR THE EMPTY ARMOR

FALLIN SOLDIAR - EMPTY SOUL

EMPTY ARMOR – EMPTY SOUL
FALLEN ARMOR – FALLEN SOUL

 

AND NOW HE'S LIVED AND CONQUERED - NOW THAT HE'S FALLEN ARMOR

 

GET THE WITNESS TO CONFESSION

FOR THE GLORY IN THE AIR

LOOKIN' FOR THE EMPTY SOLDIAR

FALLEN ARMOR -EMPTY SOUL

TERROR AND DESTRUCTION IS A PLAN THAT NEVER ENDS

TOURMENT AND SEDUCTTION ALL INSIDE OF FRIGHTENED MAN

LET HIM LIVE LET HIM BE STRONG

NEVER QUIT AND LET HIM SHINE ON

 

CURSING ALL THE WRITING THAT A WE DON'T SEE

WHY DON'T WE JUST SHINE ON - AND LET IT BE

WHY DON'T WE ANSWER THE DISTANT CRIES

THEN SHINE A LIGHT - UNTIL THERE'S FIRE!

 

FALLEN ARMOR

WORDS OF WISDOM

Smith- Nelson

 

SPEAKING IN THE WORDS OF WISDOM OH SO DIVINE

CLINGING TO THE DOCTRINES OF TIME

THEY KEEP SEARCHIN' AS THEY SUFFER
BUT THEY KEEP GOIN' ON

CAN'T HELP THE FEELIN' THAT THEY WERE WRONG

 

LEFT OUT IN THE ENDLESS NIGHT
TRYIN' TO PROVE THEM ALL WRONG
IT JUST AIN’T RIGHT

 

SPEAK TO ME IN WISDOM
TALK TO ME WITHOUT WORDS

AND IF THE RAPTURE WILL FALLOW
ON YOUR WAY YOU WILL GO

 

TALK TO ME FLAWLESSLY AND LISTEN TO ME

 

SPEAKING IN THE WORDS OF WISDOM WASTED IN MY MIND

WALKING THROUGH THE DESERT ALL THE TIME

LEFT OUT IN THE ENDLESS NIGHT
TRYIN' TO PROVE THEM ALL WRONG
IT AIN’T RIGHT

 

GOODNIGHT - GOODBYE

 

SPEAKING IN THE WORDS OF WISDOM
WASTING ALL MY TIME
TALKING WITH A HIGHER VISION

RISING IN A PERFECT SUN
WAKE ME WHEN IT ALL IS DONE

WALKING IN AN ANGELS LINE
TELL ME WHEN IT IS MY TIME

 

SPEAK TO ME IN WISDOM
TALK TO ME WITHOUT WORDS

HEAVEN FELL

Lynch-Nelson

 

IT’S TIME TO REAP YOUR SOUL ACCEPT YOUR DENILE

THE SKY IS FALLING TONIGHT

ANGLES FLY IN A FINAL GLIDE

SINKING THOUGH THE MILKY-WAY

 

THE SON CAME DOWN

AND THE STARS WERE PINS AND NEEDLES

SAINTS AND ANGELS WERE SENT HOME

NEVER AGAIN WILL THERE BE A HELL

WE FINALLY MET OUR MAKER

ON THE DAY THAT HEAVEN FELL

 

WHEN HEAVEN FELL

WE MET OUR MAKER

WHEN HEAVEN FELL

 

LET THE LIGHT OUT THAT’S IN YOU STAND BEFORE ALL

THE FATHERS CALLING TONIGHT

SET THE NIGHT ON FIRE LET IT BURN

TORCHING EVERYTHING AWAY

 

THE SON CAME DOWN

AND THE STARS WERE PINS AND NEEDLES

ALL THE ANGELS WERE SENT HOME (FINALLY HEAVEN IS ON EARTH)

NEVER AGAIN WILL THERE BE A HELL

WE FINALLY MET OUR MAKER

ON THE DAY WHEN HEAVEN FELL

 

 

WHEN HEAVEN FELL

WE MET OUR MAKER - NOW AND FOREVER
