all Shadows Fall lyrics



Idle Hands
Just a word all it takes to set it off
Uncontrolled all restraint has been lost

Absorbing more than I can stand
Of these self defeating unreal demands
Giving into frustrations command
The devil makes good use with idle hands
Overwhelming desire to react

I am too far gone forever turning back

Looking for something to lash out at

Turning inward it is myself that I attack

The anger grows inside everyday
Unquechable I have become my own prey

From where has this rage been spawned?
Been building deep inside for far too long
Forgotten memories buried and hidden
creating my own emotional prison

Can it be that i have lost?
Control of my actions and my thoughtsback to top
Thoughts Without Words
Having awareness but no true sense of self
You find yourself enslaved in chains of earthly wealth
The unending chatter that plagues the mind
Confusion will be all that you find

Chaos reigns in an untamed mind

Still question all i know advancing foward
This fallacy i have disowned

You must quench the yearning and false desire

Only balance will elevate you higher

You must train the body and the mind to serve
Envisioning thoughts without words
Chaos reigns in an untamed mind

Still question all i know advancing foward
This fallacy i have disowned

Encaged in a world that fear creates
You must release yourself and liberate

I am seeking the way...back to top
Destroyer of Senses
Shadows Fall
Destroyer of Senses



The sweet taste of self destruction
Waves of purity wash away the memories

I keep on falling off
I keep on falling off

The agents of change will dissolve

Into the fabric of our very existence

I keep on falling (I keep on falling off) off of this straight
and narrow line
The calm embrace of a sedated mind

Giver of life
Destroyer of senses
I INVOKE!
The sweet taste of self destruction

Waves of purity wash away the memories

I keep on falling (I keep on falling off) off of this straight
and narrow line
The calm embrace of a sedated mindback to top
Stepping Outside the Circle
Here I go again
A vicious cycle without end
Seeking distance for security
A desperate act to remain free

A balance point cannot be found
This whole thing will come crashing down
Down! Down!
My fear will drag you down
Into this world that i create
Your love for me has sealed your fate

Down! Down!
My fear will drag you down
Can I trust in what i feel?
Praying that this time it's real

[Chorus:]
Feel the strain!
All this times been spent in vain, MY SHAME!
open wounds that still remain, DECAY!
As my faith is stripped away, YOU'LL STRAY!
The final price I have to pay

Digging in deeper still
The hollowness I yearn to fill
The story always ends the same
The cycle soon begins again

Stepping outside the circle!back to top
The Art of Balance
I am sheltered by this apathy
Nothing left to do but torch the day
Retreating deeper into my mind
What is it that i hope to find?

This is the aftermath in me
Tendency to keep it all inside
A fool's disguise

I am strangled by this sumpathy
Empty words with no meaning
Must release myself into the void
All illusions must be destroyed

This is the aftermath in me
Tendency to keep it all

How dare you compromise
The balance of our lives
Excuses you devise
An internal suicide
I struggle to survive
A perfect goal for which to strive
Ignorance cannot disguise

The balance of our lives
Hiding the meaning of
Hiding the meaning ofback to top
The Idiot Box
Staring fowar with vacant eyes

Imagination Cannot survive

Misinformation and compromise

These televised conditioned lies

Create a system of belief
Heartless purveyors of deceit

Seems clear to me you've never known me
Doubt everything you've never shown me

Images flash by in waves
What to buy and what you'll save
All the products that you never craved
you've become another slave

All the lies that you told
I will not be bought or sold
I won't fit into your mold
I will not be bought or sold
RISE! And break away from the system
RISE! And crush the voices in your head RISE!
I want back what you stole from ME!back to top
A Fire in Babylon
A fire burns in Babylon a spark will soon ignite
Burning flame of Jah light a fire that will purify
Wipe away the city's lies reducing fortunes into ash
Tear apart your useless mask
Nowhere left for you to hide
Damned for your foolish pride
Chant down Babylon Chant down Babylon

Revelations time is now
Your world will crumble to the ground
Final judgement now has come this is armageddon

A eulogy for the modern man enslaved and devoured
By the strength of it's demands
A eulogy for the modern man hide your head and cower
Or be struck down where you stand

To advance in truth and rights
To advance in love and light
The path of righteousness is leading
The songs of I and I are pleading
In the grace pf Mt. Zion
With the strength og a lion
All barriers shall be broken
All heart alight and open
A fire burns in Babylon your world will burn
A fire burns in Babylon you world is burning downback to top
Welcome to the Machine
Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.
Where have you been?
It's alright we know where you've been.
You've been in the pipeline, filling in time,

Provided with toys and 'Scouting for Boys'.
You brought a guitar to punish your ma,
And you didn't like school, and you
know you're nobody's fool,
So welcome to the machine.

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.
What did you dream?
It's alright we told you what to dream.
You dreamed of a big star,
He played a mean guitar,

He always ate in the Steak Bar.
He loved to drive in his Jaguar.
So welcome to the Machine.back to top
