Welcome Sinners & Saints

LYRICS FOR THE DEBUT CD

Hadean (words & music: Byers)

From the kingdom of Hell a new Earth begins
From chaos and turmoil a new world is released
Angels fly who once had clipped wings
The cycle is complete
The new dawn begins

Spirits of the Dead (words & music: Byers)

Pour a pint, the grog changes the view of the room
Colors swirling soon change into blue shapes of doom

I hear voices in my head
I been drinkin’ spirits of the dead

Another round sits perfectly in queue
Drink ‘em down and then another brew

Talkin’ to voices in my head
I been drinkin’ spirits of the dead
Take my hand St. Amand said
Gonna walk with spirits of the dead

As I walk through this tunnel of light
Mother knows it’s my last night
Father bless me for I have sinned
One last prayer to tuck me in
Children do their chores and bring offerings
Talk to God kneeling on their knees
Help the sisters beside the bed
As I join the spirits of the dead

The nuns hold candles side by side
Singing hymns in the moonlight
Horses and beasts tied at the bay
The wind blows cold as I fade away
People dressed in black with tears in their eyes
Ready me for the other side
See me off to another land

Sinner or Saint (words: Byers, Nestor - music: Nestor)

I can’t be wrong if I decide what is right
Weaving my words that fall from Heavenly skies
I don’t pretend to be Holier than Thou
Do I preach what I do, or preach what I sell

Am I the sinner or the saint?
Am I a liar, a cheat or am I one in the same

I offer you children the meaning of life
Cut through your defenses like a twist of a knife
Am I a deceiver or savior of man?
Will it be too late when you discover my plan?

Am I the sinner or the saint?
Am I a liar, a cheat or am I one in the same

Come to me brothers
Just heed the words I say
Come run little children
On your knees before me; pray

Am I the sinner or the saint?
Am I a liar, messiah, heed what I say
Am I the sinner or the saint?
Am I the sinner or the saint?

The Tower (words & music: Fassio)



The Tower
All life is gone
It’s too late to turn around
Fear’s coming true
Burning hours; the final view

Dreams stop where reality bends
Is this beginning or the end….oh no

I see a tower on a hill
Brought closer by conjured will
Just can’t seem to turn around
Cannot break this spell

Mortally I fear
Yet the end seems never near
Oh the tower on the hill
Locked in life by fortune’s will
Never meant to deceive
Those bound inside so willingly

Awaiting; winter’s calling
To cover my tracks upon the ground
Never leaving; my mind deceiving
Reality I’ve found

At the window sit’s a shell
A soul free from it’s living Hell
Time’s power’s gone
Infinity goes on and on

Oh the tower on the hill
Now its task has been fulfilled
A destiny declared by fate
A new reality awaits

No longer waiting
Winter’s calling
It arrives upon the end of fall

The final torment
Finally ending
The soul finds peace beyond upon these walls

No longer trying
My soul not crying
I’ve found my destiny at last

My life’s endeavor
Now lost forever in this cask

Church on the Hill (words & music: Byers)

Everyone’s scared
The four horsemen ride
With three on my side

Everyone flees
Alliances are broke
As anarchy flows

You better run to the church on the hill
Seek shelter from the nuns at the church on the hill

Everything’s lost
The casualties rise
The cavalry rides

Everyone’s gone
The bodies degrade
The old wars still rage

You better run to the church on the hill
Seek shelter from the nuns at the church on the hill
Church on the Hill

Fight (words: Byers, Nestor - music: Nestor)

We ride through the wasteland
No future; got no past
We thrive on the battle
Knowing it might be our last

Fight
Fight to be free

We hold our position
A flash of light; it blinds my eyes
We’re off to oblivion
As everyone around me dies

Fight
Fight to be free

I rise from the ashes
City’s crumbled; I’ve lost my friends
Is this my destiny?
Collect my thoughts; fight to the end

Fight
Fight to be free

Serpents Dance (words: Byers - music: Nestor)

Hands up to the sky
The bodies move in the twilight
Fires burning bright
It’s now the time of sacrifice

We hold ‘em down
We watch them cry
See the fear that’s in their eye
Animals watch in a trance
Tonight’s the night the serpents dance

Beat the drums all loud
The children dance within the crowd
Prayers to the gods
Are chanted all night long

Hold ‘em down
Remove their hoods
Take away their worldly goods
Let the crowd take one last glance
Let ‘em watch as the serpents dance

Rituals complete this night
Time to sleep in the moonlight
The deed is done
Nothing left to chance
The forest sleeps as the serpents dance

The serpents dance

Wheel of Time (words & music: Fassio)

Hear it in every age
Through prophecy and sage
A foretelling of the end

The words are thrown about
By madmen and those devout
For what the architect will send

Are they all lies
Or salvation in disguise

Ever turning wheel of time
The final bell will chime
The ending of an age
As the mist reveals the dawn
Will we all be gone
Or remain to turn the page

Is it human now to seek
That of which the ancients speak
The transformations yet to be

A quest in every day
For transcendence it evades
The immortality that makes one free

A burning desire
To fly ever higher

Ever turning wheel of time
The final bell will chime
The ending of an age
As the mist reveals the dawn
Will we all be gone
Or remain to turn the page

The turning wheel of time

Ever turning wheel of time
The final bell will chime
The ending of an age
As the mist reveals the dawn
Will we all be gone
Or remain to turn the page

Well of Souls (words: Byers, Nestor - music: Nestor)

Here at the edge of time
I hear the whispers call
Now at the end of life
I see how far we fall
Paying no heed to tears you cried
Leaving me cold and dead inside

The needle falls loosely
Dropping from your arm
Warmth turns to darkness
In this infected slum
Passed out junkies and loosely clad whores
Decorate this room with no windows and no doors

This well of souls
Will bring you down
This well of souls
Gonna make you drown
This well of souls
Well of Souls

Hanging from a rope
That’s got you tied in knots
Drift away from this earth
You’re drunk when the chair falls
You’re clutching tightly to every last breath
It’s a futile gesture as you snap your neck

In the well of souls
Will bring you down
In the well of souls
Gonna make you drown
In the well of souls
Well of Souls

The filth pollutes our cities as we’re looking on
Everything we see becomes accepted, but God will have His turn
Another whore begs for money out on the street
Another drunk falls down, can’t stand on his feet

God will have His turn

This well of souls
Will bring you down
This well of souls
Gonna make you drown
This well of souls
Well of Souls
