TEKSTY

    EXILE

    

    Dominion Day

In my darkness
I hear Jesus crying.
In my darkness
I see children savage and blind.
In my darkness
I see dead men kneel before the cross.
In my darkness
I hear the voice of evil.

"Disciples, dark angels,
This is Dominion Day"
"My demons, come to me
This is Dominion Day"

In his darkness
I can feel the storm come.
In his darkness
Holy water burns my soul.
In his darkness
A grave waits for you at heaven's gate.
In his darkness
I hear screams that hide the voice of God.

"Come children of Eden
Pray to me on Dominion Day".
"Pray for your salvation,
Sanctuary on Dominion Day"

My soul, save me.

In his mercy,
He will bring the disease.
In his mercy
He will burn the oceans.
In his mercy
He will tear the sky down.
In his mercy
He will make pain eternal.

"Your nightmare is breathing
This is Dominion Day."
"Welcome to your saviour
This is Dominion Day."
"This is my new kingdom.
This is Dominion Day."
"Creation bleeds for me.
This is Dominion Day."

 

    Prophecy

We are deceived
Valhalla is falling
We are betrayed
We are lost and forsaken.
He's sold the world
Sold us all to the hunger
The body of Christ
Is as black as his soul.

The word of the Lord
Is the lie of your father
This mortal sin
Is a voice of shame.
Look at the storm
Like a dying apostle
Cruel and divine
Like the ghost of man.

And now you realise
I am the truth.

Worship the dead
The damned and misled
Tortured and bled
Like the voices of reason.
Sacred and pure
Sanctified obsession
Holy and cured
Like a doorway to heaven.

Sisterhood cried
Innocence lied
Purity died
With the angels of passion.
Blessed are they
Who pay homage to rumour
I've seen the light
Shine on the grave of Man.

And now you realise
I am the truth.

And I believed.
Amen.

 

    Dead Heaven

Thought I was asleep
Lost to dreams
I was dying in a big machine
Didn't think the voice that called me
Could be real.

Thought I woke up
Lost my faith
I was staring at the face of rage
Didn't think I'd see the demon in "His" heart.

Thought I saw blood
Turn to wine
A vision from the angel wars
Didn't think I'd find the saviour in the dark.

Thought I saw a light
Tear the storm
Showing me the way to God
Didn't know that Heaven died and went to Hell.

Blessed is dead Heaven
Blessed are shadows and pain
Blessed is dead Heaven
Blessed is death in "His" name

Thought I saw rain
Black and cold
Falling on a child's grave
Thought I saw an angel laugh and piss on it.

Thought I saw a dance
Strange and cruel
Swaying to the screams of men
Thought I saw the Lord's disciples laugh at that.

Thought I saw love
Sacrificed
Mary under three wise men
Thought I saw the Virgin look at me and cry.

Thought I saw a cross
And Jesus dead
Burning in the midnight sky
Thought I saw God dancing in the flames.

Glory is dead Heaven
Glory is shadows and pain
Glory is dead Heaven
Glory is death in "His" name

"Do you confess?"
"Cleanse your sin"
"Do you believe in the word of God?"

Welcome to dead Heaven
Welcome to shadows and pain
Welcome to dead Heaven
Welcome to death in "His" name

 

    Dark

I've been waiting here
Waiting for faith
And the word to fall.
Now the darkness comes
And I'll pray for
The end of us all.

Don't let the dark into me
We killed the angels that warned us of you
Don't let the dark into me
We raised the tower of Babel for you
Don't let the dark into me
We let the children build temples for you
Don't let the dark into me
Don't let the vengeance of Heaven be you

So pray to me, I'm the Lord's new disease,
Look down into the face of God.
Bow down and cry, I'm the black Messiah,
The one true divinity.
Kneel before my altar and drink the wine of slaughter,
Who said I'd save anyone?
So bleed for me, I need hostility
To lead the faithful and the blind.

Don't let the light shine on me
I am the poison that feeds life to you
Don't let the light shine on me
I am the demon that waits inside you
Don't let the light shine on me
I am the ghost that reminds death of you
Don't let the light shine on me
I am the darkness that crawls into you

 

    Innocence Bleeding

Do you believe in Heaven?
That man's soul is eternal?
Our prayers are always answered?
And miracles can happen?

Save me.

But don't you wonder?
The Holy Ghost and Jesus?
In paradise and angels?
That God is all forgiving?

Save me.

Reward the faithful?
He lies to you and deceives.
A dark salvation comes.
Innocence bleeding.

Too dark to see the pictures of Heaven
Too dark to find the Garden of Eden.
Blinded by faith and stories of wonder,
Devine mercy? Mercy lies bleeding.

Save me.

 

    The Angel Wars

I won't pray here,
or bow my head.
I won't praise your name,
I won't kneel down.

I won't pray to you
on this side of sane. (Oh Lord)
I won't pray to you
on this side of Hell. (Father)
I won't pray to you
on this side of Heaven again.

I don't need faith,
forgiveness of sin;
I don't need saving,
I don't need lies.

I don't believe
in the angel wars .(Oh Lord)
I don't believe
in the Virgin Birth. (Father)
I don't believe
in the cross on the hill. (Jesus)
I don't believe
in the kindness of God to man.

I'll drive a stake
through the black of your heart. (Oh Lord)
I'll pull down your temples
and burn every word. (Father)
I'll kill all the angels
that show me "the light". (Jesus)
I'll drift into darkness
and tear out the soul of god.

 

    Absolution

I would swim across oceans
Just to talk with you
I would climb a tall mountain
Just to look at you
I'd give my soul to the devil
If you asked me to
I would walk out of heaven
Just to be with you

This is absolute
This is absolution

I will be your disciple
And I'll worship you
Burn the prophets of reason
Light the sky for you
Kill the children of Eden
If you want me to
Close the dead eyes of God
If they offended you

This is absolute
This is absolution

 

    An Alien Cure

So I wandered like Jesus
Like an alien cure
Searching for my disciples
Dispossessed and alone.

So I looked deeper
Into evil
And I came closer
To your corruption.

I took a virgin like Mary
And said "I give you The One"
I confessed to desire
And watched the world come undone.

So I looked deeper
Into evil
And I came closer
To your obsession.

So I looked deeper
Into evil
And I came closer
To Heaven.
Your Heaven.

So I moved like a rumour
Like a glorious lie
And I walked into Heaven
Into dead paradise.

 

    Exile

I heard it in my sleep
A voice more dead than old
I thought I'd known the fear
But then it touched my soul and said:

"You will pray for me
Bow your head to me."

It came for me at night
And took me dream by dream
To where everything is dark
And no-one hears you scream
Took everything I loved
And turned love into pain
It said "I'm the prophecy
And I'll make you believe in me."

"Sacrifice for me
Be humility."

It said:
"I'll make everyone pay
I'll make everyone pay
Some things you can't forget
I'll make everyone pay
Some things you can't forgive
I'll make everyone pay."

"And so it comes to this
Death or eternity?
Or would you like to pay
For all humanity?
Do you believe in faith?
Than choose. Heaven or Hell or me?
A shadow on the sane
The final treachery of God."

"You will kneel for me
Lose your eyes for me."

"Betray the world for me
Burn your soul for me."

It said:
"I'll make everyone pay
I'll make everyone pay
Some things you can't forget
I'll make everyone pay
Some things you can't forgive
I'll make everyone pay."
