Skies Darken – Darkest Sleep

Ten thousand bold tin soldiers the serried rank and file
advance with cross before them they have god on there side
their legions bold and hungry fierce in the battle line
their foes shall fall before them for god is on their side

and all of the Angels and saints long expired
the point of your life is you’re the one who does the killing
you’re the one who kills yourself

ten thousand bold tin soldiers seeking their enemy
come face to face with chaos and thrust the sword in deep
all of their anger and hate in their minds
the point of your life is you’re the one who does the killing
you’re the one who kills yourself

waken from your slumber waken from your darkest sleep
cut the chains that hold you darkness that bound you
chaos that stirs you soul… waken now

the captain sails his boat to nowhere he has fallen upon hard times
the waves he met fell on his head and tumbled him into the depths
is he on the other side is he body is he mind is he space or is he just time

ten thousand bold tin soldiers all slain or left to die
no cross had went before them no god was on their side
and all of their power and strength long expired
the point of your life is you were born too do the killing
you were born too kill yourself

johnny must escape from his prison gate now the night is within him
the waves he met fell on his head and tumbled him into the depths
is he on the other side is he body is he mind is he space or is he just time

(ii) MANIFESTATIONS

Am I drifting on a cloud down below or in a shroud
laid upon the altar bare sacrificed
strike hard with the hammer watch the red blood flow

am I drifting on a cloud down below and in a shroud am i spinning round and round
laid upon the altar bare sacrificed to the hammer pound from the cross into the shroud
am I spinning round and round from the cross into the shroud set upon the altar bare sacrificed
set upon the altar bare strike hard with the hammer
sacrificed to the hammer watch the red blood flow watch the red blood flow

like a leaf I’m falling as a rain drop from the sky
from the clouds that hold me heaven forsake me
darkness has claimed my soul all of my life

johnny must escape from his prison gate now the night is within him
the waves he met fell on his head and tumbled him into the depths
is he on the other side is he body is he mind is he space or is he just time
