Gates of Delirium
Also available on:
Stand and fight we do consider
Reminded of an inner pact between us
That's seen as we go
And ride there
In motion
To fields in debts of honor

Stand the marchers soaring talons,
Peaceful lives will not deliver freedom,
Fighting we know,
Destroy oppression
The point to reaction
As leaders look to you

Choose and renounce throwing chains to the floor
Kill or be killing faster sins correct the flow
Casting giant shadows off vast penetrating force
To alter via the war that seen
As friction spans the spirits wrath ascending (slowly) to redeem

Wars that shout in screams of anguish
Power spent passion bespoils our soul receiver
Surely we know
In glory
We rise to offer
Create our freedom
A word we utter
A word

Words cause our banner, victorious our day
Will silence be promised as violence display
The curse increased we fight the power
And live by it by day
Our gods awake in thunderous roars
And guide the leaders' hand in paths of glory to the cause

Listen, should we fight forever
Knowing as we do know fear destroys
Listen, should we leave our children
Listen, our lives stare in silence
Help us now

Listen, your friends have been broken
They tell us of your poison, now we know
Kill them, give them as they give us
Slay them, burn their childrens' laughter
On to hell

The fist will run, grasp metal to gun
The spirit sings in crashing tones
We gain the battle drum
Our cries will shrill, the air will moan and crash into the dawn
The pen won't stay the demon's wings
The hour approaches pounding out the Devil's sermon

Soon, oh, soon the light
Pass within and soothe this endless night
And wait here for you
Our reason to be here

Soon, oh, soon the time
All we move to gain will reach and calm
Our heart is open
Our reason to be here

Long ago, set into rhyme
Soon, oh, soon the light
Ours to shape for all time
Ours the right
The sun will lead us
Our reason to be here

Soon, oh, soon the light
Ours to shape for all time
Ours the right
The sun will lead us
Our reason to be here
Sound Chaser
Faster moment spent spread tales of change within the sound
Counting form through rhythm electric freedom
Moves to counter-balance stars expound our conscience
All to know and see the look in your eyes

Passing time will reach as nature relays to set the scene
New encounters spark a true fruition
Guiding lines we touch them, our bodies balance out the waves
As we accelerate our days to the look in your eyes

From the moment I reached out to hold, I felt a sound
And what touches our soul slowly moves as touch rebounds
And to know that tempo will continue
Lost in trance of dances as rhythm takes another turn
As is my want, I only reach to look in your eyes
To Be Over
We go sailing down the calming streams
Drifting endlessly by the bridge
To be over, we will see, to be over

Do not suffer through the game of chance that plays
Always doors to lock away your dreams
Think it over, time will heal your fear, think it over
Balance the thoughts that release within you

Childlike soul dreamer
One journey, one to seek and see in every light
Do open true pathways away

Carrying closer
Go gently, holding doors will open every way
You wander true pathways away

After all your soul will still surrender
After all don't doubt your part
Be ready to be loved
