Metal Church - A Light In The Dark lyrics


01. Light In The Dark

Shadows in a dark place lurk inside the walls
Hiding from daylight hiding from us all
Windows of a past life, reflections hard to find
Memories of lost days, etch their place in time
Anger and frustration, diseases of the mind
Just like the evils, the evils of mankind
Submerged and frozen, in this icy hell
Reaching for tomorrow, what will the fortune tell

Light transcends into our memory, dark descends upon the misery
When soulless spirits grasp the beating heart
Remember there is a light in the dark

Blessed our the visions of ones who have dared
Healing the masses with the crosses they bear
The dawn of creation is where it begins
The privilege of power gives the privilege to sin

Screaming for some sanity, drift like a lost soul
Curse on all humanity the worlds lost control
Inside out reality, we're victims of a crime
Innocence has since been lost, we've all been left behind

02. More Than Your Master

Before the walls begin to fall, before the end it takes us all,
You know we're running out of time but moving faster
When will we ever heed the call, will we heed it one and all,
You know we've always been our own walking disaster

And when you look around you have found it's more than just your master

When the buildings were ablaze, and the height of terror raised, by fire we watched them burn into black skies
The world's living in denial, every woman, man, and child, our children running scared and asking why

03. Disappear

In this lost and lonely place is where I call my home
Four thick walls surrounding me I pay a heavy toll

I'm pushing and pushing trying to claw my way back
Wishing, wishing I could disappear just like that

There is this voice inside my head turns from friend to foe
When will all this madness stop neither of us knows

How did I get this way how could I get this far
Was this the master plan was it written in the stars
For me to live my life as a pessimistic fool
A superficial man the exception to the rule
Mark your words and you will see the price
That I have paid the cost of life the wounded soul
Nothing ventured, nothing gained

The hands have stopped out on the clock I'm on the astral plane
The things I've done won't be forgot my image still remains

04. Pill For The Kill

Black night step into madness lose sight against your will
Last night begging forgiveness for that one time thrill
Black night another prescription take 10 to ease the pain
Last night another deception you think you're going insane

Demons rising as you cast them away little pills of color make them stay
Just another pill have you got your fill
Just another pill a pill for the kill

Your lost far from enchantment you found a better way
Comatose another dependent another sad, sad day
You're back, back with a vengeance you want to score again
So string higher than ever with a Cheshire grin

Here, take this and everything will be fine, trust me

05. Mirror Of Lies

When you look at yourself you can see a bewildering soul
A shell of a once stable man who's lost all control
You've journeyed so long now you've sealed all your plans
But when you look at your reflection you try to understand

In the mirror of lies

From the mystical gates of your past to the depths of the sea
No matter how hard you try things will be what they will be
When looking for secrets just close your eyes
You're searching for the answer but the answers are inside

In the mirror of lies

The spell is broken the scars will fade reflections of mistakes
You once made a pawn or a token
A king or a thief gaze into the mirror and believe

07. Blinded By Life

In a web of confusion you're strangled by your fear
A hopeless situation you've been in for years
No hope for tomorrow, no hope for today
Always defending mistakes that you've made

When you're lost on the wrong side and you're feeling no pain
You plead for absolution but nothing's left to gain
You're far from the truth and you're near to what's right
Make a decision without losing sight
You're blinded by life and the mask is your darkness
Blinded by life with one foot in the grave
Blinded by life and you hide in the darkness
Blinded by life with one foot in the grave

We want a perfect world we want the silver spoon
But if there was we'd find a way to reduce it into ruins
We're picking up the pieces we're always playing a game
One day we'll realize we are all to blame

08. Beyond All Reason

Curse the man, curse the prophet, worse the man without any eyes
Play the madman, play the poet, some say he hides in a perfect disguise
Less the man that heeds no warning, and lets the sand run through his hands
His fingers stiff with anticipation, as he plots his next feeble plan

Beyond all reason, he holds the key to life
A change of season, all answers in due time
No rhyme or reason, a product of mankind
But he's not the only one, he's just the lonely one

Since ancient times we've bowed to leaders, leaders only by their command
Banned together a bond of freedom, from their rule and master plan
Take the greed, take the power, hold the ring within your hand
Seize the crown and wield the dagger, it's the path of every man

Slipping through the cracks of the system we have made, staring at life as we fall
Remembering places and pictures in time, surprised that we have made it at all
Looking for heroes and praying to gods, uttering secrets we keep
Hope for redemption and someone to blame, the price that we pay is too steep

12. Watch The Children Play (Tribute)

In a darkened graveyard glows a light.
I see it shine there every night.
I know somewhere there's a hidden door.
There's an answer here we must explore.

No, I'll not submit to reason.
I'll sit and watch the seasons change.

We watch the children pray.
Save us God today,
Come whatever may.

We hold our fate and make the choice,
But we'll not listen to that still small voice.
Are we just crazy, out of our minds?
Wish this were someplace, another time.

We watch the children pray.
Save us God today,
Come whatever may.

And I know we're going
So far away from this wretched life we lead.
With open arms meet catastrophe,
In the valley of the damned we'll be.

And I know we're going
So far away from this wretched life we lead.
With open arms meet catastrophe,
In the valley of the damned we'll be.

We watch the children pray.
Save us God today,
Come whatever may.

And now to life we say goodbye.
I know the when but not the why.
Our nation's blood spills on the ground.
Our lives go out without a sound.
