Onslaught - In Search Of Sanity lyrics

02. In Search Of Sanity

Trapped by this madness
In search of something lost to me
Life has no meaning
In a place that has no heart to bleed
Through walls of glass I stare
With a silence written in my eyes
No love or laughter
Strange is the passion of the wise

Stand up and fight
Won't someone listen to me now
Stand up and fight
There's only me in my mind
I can't find a way out
No one sees what I see
This maze is a white line

In search of sanity
In search of sanity

Lies taint the mirror
No image of the truth to see
Time lost forever
To the wastelands of insanity
Deep down inside I pray
For the peace and freedom of my past
Is there no way out
Hope light and reason fading fast

Stand up and fight
Won't someone listen to me now
Stand up and fight
There's only me in my mind
I can't find a way out
No one sees what I see
This maze is a white line

In search of sanity

These watching voices
Gaze through this dark and empty shell
Sweet taste of freedom
Lies far inside the wishing well
The slope gets steeper now
On the winding road to set me free
Inside this sorrow
I seek a dream that just can't be

Stand up and fight
Won't someone listen to me now
Stand up and fight
There's only me in my mind
I can't find a way out
No one sees what I see
This maze is a white line

In search of sanity
In search of sanity

03. Shellshock

Are these the eyes of a madman
That see a crumbling sky
Reaching out for the answer please tell me why
In a state of reclusion
In a shell-shocked mind
Gazing into the darkness that I can't find

Stay calm
There's panic all around
Listen to the silence it's so loud
Raise hell
Who says that I'm insane
Follow let the blindman lead the way
Madness I'm your slave
Shellshock, shellshock, shellshock
Draining the life from me
Shellshock, shellshock
My ears they bleed
Shellshock, shellshock, shellshock
Twisting my every dream
Shellshock, shellshock
Oh insanity was born in me

In the chill of a nightmare
Awake in screaming pain
Bowing down to emotion every nerve in flame
Am I blind to the reason
Can I really see
Along the path of confusion that's haunting me

Stay calm
There's panic all around
Listen to the silence it's so loud
Raise hell
Who says that I'm insane
Follow let the blindman lead the way
Madness I'm your slave
Shellshock, shellshock, shellshock
Draining the life from me
Shellshock, shellshock
My ears they bleed
Shellshock, shellshock, shellshock
Twisting my every dream
Shellshock, shellshock
Oh insanity was born in me

Watching time for the timeless
Within a conscious dream
A fading scene of violence what can this mean
Through a faith in illusion
Redeem a jaded past
The clawing hands of the clock-face
They turn so fast

Stay calm
There's panic all around
Listen to the silence it's so loud
Raise hell
Who says that I'm insane
Follow let the blindman lead the way
Madness I'm your slave
Shellshock, shellshock, shellshock
Draining the life from me
Shellshock, shellshock
My ears they bleed
Shellshock, shellshock, shellshock
Twisting my every dream
Shellshock, shellshock
Oh insanity was born in me

04. Lightning War

Striking at speed on the wings of revenge
Creating at madness at will
Deceiving dictating pretenders beware
Unleashing the blitzkrieg to kill
Burning desire with blood as the fuel
Dying you feed the machine
Rising from blindness the lights scan the sky
Defying the darkness I see

Raise the flag of shame
Coward is your name
I have your life held in my hand
Feel the power rise
Lightning cracks the sky
Cut loose the fury take command

Die, die, die
By our Blitzkrieg
Die, die, die
It's a lightning war
Die, die, die
By our Blitzkrieg
Die, die, die

Riding the past as we march on through time
Inflicting destruction and pain
Deposing destroying exceptions are none
Send bleeding the weak and insane
Leading them on through the oceans of light
Black is the hatred we found
Awaiting the sign for the hammer to fall
Sent crushing by power and sound

Raise the flag of shame
Coward is your name
I have your life held in my hand
Feel the power rise
Lightning cracks the sky
Cut loose the fury take command

Die, die, die
By our Blitzkrieg
Die, die, die
It's a lightning war
Die, die, die
By our Blitzkrieg
Die, die, die

Tighten the grip on the never say die
Precision the way to succeed
Ascending defending in action again
Emotion is what we perceive
Show no remorse in a crushing defeat
Sweet is a vengeful attack
Life is for living right down to the last
The glory immortal in black

Raise the flag of shame
Coward is your name
I have your life held in my hand
Feel the power rise
Lightning cracks the sky
Cut loose the fury take command

Die, die, die
By our Blitzkrieg
Die, die, die
It's a lightning war
Die, die, die
By our Blitzkrieg
Die, die, die

05. Let There Be Rock

In the beginning back in nineteen fifty five
Man didn't know 'bout a rock 'n' roll show,
And all that jive
The white man had the schmaltz,
And the black man had the blues
No one knew what they was gonna do
But Tschaikovsky had the news, said

Let there be light, and there was light
Let there be sound, and there was sound
Let there be drums, and there was drums
Let there be guitar, and there was guitar
Let there be rock, let there be rock

And it came to pass, that rock 'n' roll was born
All across the land every rocking band,
Was blowing up a storm
And the guitar man got famous,
The business man got rich
And in every bar there was a superstar,
With a seven year itch
There was fifteen million fingers,
Learning how to play
And you could hear the fingers picking
And this is what they had to say

Let there be light, sound, drums, guitar
Let there be rock, let there be rock

One night in a club called the Shaking Hand
There was a 42 decibel rocking band
The music was good, and the music was loud
And the singer turned and he said to the crowd

Let there be rock, let there be rock
Let there be rock, let there be rock

06. Blood Upon The Ice

Ancient cities lost in time
Nations of the grave
Banished to a crypt of freezing pain
Children of the seven seas
Beneath the heavens room
Searching for a place to call a home

I wake up dying
Trapped in this hell
In search of finding
In death we are alone

Does the madman plead insane
Is there death that gives no pain
Blind aggression bring you fame
I just need a chance

To win or lose
We play this dying game
To stand and fight
And breakout from these chains
To maim and kill
I drain you free of life
I live you die
There's blood upon the ice

Distant echoes haunt the brain
The watching waiting men
Laughing for this torture never ends
Captive of the empty dreams
Screaming at the sky
Falling froze am I about to die

I wake up dying
Trapped in this hell
In search of finding
In death we are alone

Does the madman plead insane
Is there death that gives no pain
Blind aggression bring you fame
I just need a chance

To win or lose
We play this dying game
To stand and fight
And breakout from these chains
To maim and kill
I drain you free of life
I live you die
There's blood upon the ice

Death clouds mask the sky
No way was I born to die
Mad sad am I insane
I won't submit to fame
Deaf blind in search of light
C'mon we're gonna fight
Laugh, cry the killing's done
It's time for blood to run

Frozen life to blind to see
A kaleidoscope of time
Awakened by the anger in my mind
Welcome to this dying world
Where sleeping cities lie
The endless lights that fade and pass by

I wake up dying
Trapped in this hell
In search of finding
In death we are alone

Does the madman plead insane
Is there death that gives no pain
Blind aggression bring you fame
I just need a chance

To win or lose
We play this dying game
To stand and fight
And breakout from these chains
To maim and kill
I drain you free of life
I live you die
There's blood upon the ice

07. Welcome To Dying

As time slips by
I awaken from my sleep
Too blind to see
That tomorrow's just a dream
I fear no pain
As I reach toward the sky
Immortal words
Was I really born to die

My destiny
Please release me from this hell
I'm locked inside
Cannot break the broken spell

Welcome to dying
Welcome to dying
Now say your last goodbyes

The darkness dies
But the dawn it brings no light
In life or death
Our existence is a fight
In sight of end
Let me die leave me in peace
A slave to life
Break the chains and set me free

My destiny
Please release me from this hell
I'm locked inside, locked inside
Cannot break the broken spell

Welcome to dying
Welcome to dying
Now say your last goodbyes

Death is spreading like disease
Life I cannot see
Fate a shadow blackening my soul
Life holds nothing for me now
Death so let it be
Fate is something far beyond control

Welcome to dying
Welcome to dying
Now say your last goodbyes

Before my eyes
Flashing memories of the past
I lie in wait
Could these thoughts now be my last
Time fade away
Have I wasted all these years
As air grows cold
For the end is drawing near

My destiny
Please release me from this hell
I'm locked inside, locked inside
Cannot break the broken spell

Welcome to dying
Welcome to dying
Now say your last goodbyes

08. Powerplay

Death is the way
A passion to die
I see a world gone insane
Obsessed by the fashion to try
Look to the rhyme
The words never change
Forever in line
In search of a new game to play

Follow on
Along the line
Your fate is what you will find
Paralyse
Reality
You bear the scars of devilry

Don't play with fire
Powerplay
Injecting madness in your mind
Powerplay
The flame burns higher
Powerplay
Draw first blood
Life is hello goodbye
Feel the powerplay
Feel the powerplay

Burning inside
Immune to the pain
Caught in a jigsaw of lies
The glamour is fading to shame
Lost in a void
Lost far beyond time
I see in your eyes
A madness that's leading you blind

Follow on
Along the line
Your fate is what you will find
Paralyse
Reality
You bear the scars of devilry

Don't play with fire
Powerplay
Injecting madness in your mind
Powerplay
The flame burns higher
Powerplay
Draw first blood
Life is hello goodbye
Feel the powerplay
Feel the powerplay

Tell me why
The bell of warning rings
If you give me some time
I will prove to you it's lunacy

Running from life
A slow suicide
You hear a voice from the grave
A thorn that lies deep in your side
Leading you down
A spiral to hell
In need of a friend a mistress
That served you so well

Follow on
Along the line
Your fate is what you will find
Paralyse
Reality
You bear the scars of devilry

Don't play with fire
Powerplay
Injecting madness in your mind
Powerplay
The flame burns higher
Powerplay
Draw first blood
Life is hello goodbye
Feel the powerplay
Feel the powerplay
