Vicious Crusade lyrics
Album: Life That Kills 
|Land of lakes|
Here I am uncount and wild|
Here I am tolerant and mild
Look at me, you neglected child,
My hard-hearted Land of Lakes.
You gave me birth but drained my soul,
You cut my wings and let me fall,
Where are you, can't you hear my call,
Oh my callous Land of Lakes?
You breaved my heart, shut up in jail,
You took my home to put up for sale,
Where is your love, will it prevail
In my cruel Land of Lakes?
You never showed you needed me,
You never loved and will never be,
You've killed your child can't you see,
My dear mother, my Land of Lakes?
Hey-ho, burn to be your child,
Hey-ho, living through the aches,
Hey-ho, burn to be your child,
I hail you Land of Lakes!
|Chains of tyranny|
Despotism of power, ideology's dictate,|
Triumph of the suffering, violence and hate,
Freedoms are abolished, objection's an offence,
The only way to stay alive's implict obedience.
Hate, violence, opprecion, despair, misery, dipression,
Suspiciousness, dismay, personality's decay,
You're obedient faceful slave.
You persecute your father, your neighbour you defame,
In the hunt on public enemies hound is your name,
Your tyrant is your prophet, his power is your pride,
You suffocate, deteriorate, hate him deep inside.
Oh so paltry thy look in the faceless crowd,
Thy protest, desperate cry dare not say aloud,
Faceful beast, deaf and blind, faceless without me,
Doomed to live and to die in thy slavery...
|The verge of extinction|
The voices of riots, overloading with hate,|
Returning to life tell the truth,
The tongues of indictment,
Nailed to history's gate,
Revenge for inflicted abuse.
The mutinous souls, once refused to submit,
Find peace and release,
And cut off throats of the prophets accreate,
Appealing to prognies.
Marching on the verge of extinction,
Marching on the arms of revolt.
The heroes of the senseless massacres
Get to the dump of time,
And the masters of the human circus
Encourage another crime.
Through the centuries of the affliction and pain
Rises rage breaking chains on its way,
And the crucified dream, reviving again,
Calls fevered minds to tray.
With dismay you meet the rising dawn,|
Tired of the endless roam,
You've lost your way and there is no return
To the place you long ago called home.
With a burnt out soul and broken will,
After years of pain you've suffered through,
With every freedom-loving breath they'd kill,
There's nothing left of the real you
Blind to your pain, deaf to all the words you say,
Never even cared to take you as you are,
Crippling your life, treated you like nasty stray,
Refused to be their slave, you're labeled pariah.
Life has past, and all is gone,
And bleeding mind no longer cares,
And only labeled heart and crown of thorns
Still bring you back in your nightmares...
Living in the hell they proudly call society,
Burning with the hate they've sown in your heart,
Trying to retain your life grain of sanity,
Which let you be your self which stamps you pariah.
I've got no heart, I've got no thoughts, I've got no face,
I suffocate, I can't tear out from your embrace,
And day by day, through all my life I obey your will,
I'm just the one among the crowd you slowly kill.
|In articulo mortis|
Mon Dieu, dis-moi, comment dois-je exister?|
Mon Dieu, dis-moi, comment fuir les peches?
Mon Dieu, dis-moi, puis-je surmonter le monde
Qui nait, qui meurt et ne que hurie et gronde?
Reponds, mon Dieu, comment y dois je perir
Pour toutes les fois ne pas mourir?..
Mon Dieu, dis-moi, comment sauve-ton sa chair?
Mon Dieu, dis-moi, comment faire la priere?
Mon Dieu, dis-moi, puis-je exhumer sa peur
Qui me fera renaitre en candeur?
Reponds, mon Dieu, ne suis-je pas si execrable
Pour que je te change contre le Diable?
|Arm of the invisible|
Master's the one who pays, I'm the that imposes his sight,|
His lie I turn to truth-bribes are always right.
Inconstancy I maintain, perjury, flattery are admired,
Just like a venal maid I'm despised, but still I'm desired.
I'm your wa to the power, moral decease,
I'm the invisible mower of destinies.
You're rich, will it be long? No one insured in that vicious play,
And slab you stand upon may as well crash you someday.
Masters-I overlive them all now exalt-tomorrow abuse,
One thing's unchangeable I rule, you only loose.
Master's the one who pays, I'm the thing that imposes his ravem
Play this dirty game where I am master and you are my slave.
Don't ask me I'll tell you no truth, locked the door of my mind,|
Don't call me I'm too deaf to hear and my feelings too blind,
Don't plant the seeds of your love, now my soul is dead land,
I am gone on my ruins of past in the kingdom of sand.
Desperate play with dying me
Passionate play of misery.
I'm the book with the pages torn out, I'm a woen out dress,
You will never slake your heart's thirst in my sea of distress,
Never more the tune of my life will resound in the air,
Run away and leave me alone on my road of despair.
Hypocrite, Public cheat,|
The one for seat, Votes' hunter.
Nose to the wind I please them all, stay afloat.
I'm your friend until you fall-your defeat's my gloat.
Ignore the moral and betray the vows you made,
Fair is the faul play it makes the grade.
Lie is every word you say,
Lie-your guide on vile way,
Lie-success of your career,
Lie, so barefaced so clear.
Rancour's while, The endless guide,
Bloody style, Brawl for power.
Vote for me, trust my lie blind defender,
I'll send your sons on war to die for my grandeur.
Sow dissension in the nation, despondency,
Make you hunger in privation, misery,
Raped the trust, Eyes in dust,
Time of lust, Liars' elections.
Choice is made, you vote for lie, exaltation,
See you proudly glority his domination,
Cheated by his scurry show, weak-willed fool,
Bow bondservant to your fee, be proud he rules.
|Voice of eternity|
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.|
Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall comforted.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Blessed are you when men cast insults at you and persecute you
And say all kinds of evil against you falsely on account of Me.
But woe to you who are rich,
For you are receiving your comfort in full.
Woe to you who are well fed now, for you shall be hungry.
Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep.
Woe to you when all men speak well of you,
For in the same way their fathers used to treat the false prophets.
|Life that kills|
The flashers of the dawn I see new day's arising but not for me,|
I'll look no longer at the blazing vault of heaven.
Now everything's gone and this is the end,
To put the point won't flinch the hand,
My time has come and soon I'll leave forever...
Maintenant que je vois les reflets de l'aurore
D'un jour qui va naitre, pas plus pour mon coeur.
Je regarderai, pas longtemps, cette voute de l'Amour...
Toute chose disparue, c'est la fin qui en suit,
Un gros point final est bien deja mis,
Mon temps expire, et jo dois m en aller pour toujours.
...and it was the third hour when
they crucified him. And the
inscription of charge against him
read: The King of the Jews. And
those who passing by were hurling
abuse at him, wagging their heads
and saying, "You who are going to
destroy the temple and rebuild it in
three days, save yourself and
come down from the cross."
