Well, first one didn't work out too well, but I'm hoping this one will have a far more successful fate.

Basically, one person posts up some lyrics or a poem, another person rates that out of a hundred, and then posts up some lyrics or a poem of his/her own choosing. Then another person rates, puts up his, and we continue this cycle. I'll start.



Atheist - An Incarnation's Dream

It all seems so strange
The mutes the bums
The dogs with mange, the poor,
Doesn''t anybody help themselves anymore
I guess not
Barefoot pregnant women
Little kids with snot on their face
A land of plenty, a dynasty of disgrace !
I''ll manifest for you
Careening on the outer limits of reality
My mission to create a better galaxy
I must not fail them now,
I look inside to see that it''s clear
Living life is just not enough
You must persevere
Please grab hold
Not to things that are bought
But to things that cannot be sold,
Then you''ll see
You''re released by trial and error
The world''s prophecy is to learn
A candle lit from the bottom
Will soon start to burn
Don''t dignify, a false spy in the sky
Re-route your path
With the blink of an eye

Walking around with a mind of your own
With a glance to the past
You can see we have grown
How much we have grown

It''s been my dream
To enter the stream
To let carnates know
What life really means
If one understands
That''s all I can ask
Life to you
is such a wretched task !

80/100, I love Atheist but haven't actually bothered looking up the lyrics before.

Opeth - Ghost of Perdition

Ghost of Mother
Lingering death
Ghost on Mother's bed
Black strands on the pillow
Contour of her health
Twisted face upon the head

Ghost of perdition
Stuck in her chest
A warning no one read
Tragic friendship
Called inside the fog
Pouring venom brew deceiving

Devil cracked the earthly shell
Foretold she was the one
Blew hope into the room and said:
"You have to live before you die young"

Holding her down
Channeling darkness
Hemlock for the Gods
Fading resistance
Draining the weakness
Penetrating inner light

Rode into the dark unaware
Winding ever higher

Darkness by her side
Spoke and passed her by
Dedicated hunter
Waits to pull us under
Rose up to its call
In his arms she'd fall
Mother light received
And a faithfull servant's free

In time the hissing of her sanity
Faded out her voice and soiled her name
And like marked pages in a diary
Everything seemed clean that is unstained
The incoherent talk of ordinary days
Why would we really need to live?
Decide what is clear and what's within a haze
What you should take and what to give

Ghost of perdition
A saint's premonition's unclear
Keeper of holy hordes
Keeper of holy whores

To see a beloved son
In despair of what's to come

If one cut the source of the flow
And everything would change
Would conviction fall
In the shadow of the righteous
The phantasm of your mind
Might be calling you to go
Defying the forgotten morals
Where the victim is the prey​

70/100 - I can't stop thinking of Super Nintendo Games now for some reason when I read this.


Blood Fire Death by Bathory


Deaths star on horizon
Lightning and rain
Black winds and thunder
The skyline is in flames

Written in the red mist

The sign of the one
Who rides deaths cold wind
And walks disguised among

All you vagrant souls

Of profane disbeliefs
False prophets and deceivers
Shall swing from the trees

Soon the dawn shall arise

For all the opressed to arm
A chariot of thunder shall be seen
And bronze horns shall sound the alarm

Fists will raise like hammers

To a cloudy black sky
Bonds and chains fall to the ground

Children of all slaves

Stand united and proud
All people of bondage shall triumph
And live by the sign of...

Blood Fire Death


The moment is chosen

The Battlefield is bare
Take now thy stand people
The true ones don't fear

Now choose your weapons

And fall in the line
Choose well your colours
And follow the sign

Blood for all tears shed

And Fire for hate
Death for what shall become
All false ones fate

The standard bearer is chosen

And the day has just begun
Shadows growing long by the rising
Of the awakening sun

Fists raise like hammers

To a clear sunny sky
Bonds and chains fallen to the ground

Children of all slaves

Now united and proud
All people of bondage now triumph
And live by the sign of...

Blood Fire Death


Children of all slaves

Unite be proud
Rise out of darkness and pain

A chariot of thunder and gold

Will come loud
And a warrior of thunder and rain

With hair as white as snow

Hammer of steel
To set you free of your chains

And to lead you all

Where horses run free
And the souls of the ancient ones reign

Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!
89/100 "All you vagrant souls Of profane disbeliefs False prophets and deceivers Shall swing from the trees" Yessir, this is as brutal as it is though provoking.


TEARS OF TIME - CREMATORY

Tears of time - Lost in the light
Tears of pain - Found in the self
Deny your equals
Destroy the testimony of days past
The door of damnation open
Reason as goal
Destroy the beast of your thoughts -
Like the dust in your hands
Like the dust in your hands - Like
the dust in your hands


Tears of time - Lost in light
Tears of time - Just an illusion
Tears of time - Lost in light
Tears of time - Just an illusion

The call of the wind fades away in your dreams
People who once believed in you
Friends who trusted you
The source of life evaporates
Many emotions left behind
Your dust blown away by the wind
Many tears sown in your dreams
Like the dust in your hands


Tears of time - Lost in light
Tears of time - Just an illusion
Tears of time - Lost in light
Tears of time - Just an illusion
Tears of time - Tears of time

74/100 - I guess I like most of it.

<center>Rain Wound by Timeghoul


</center>
Here my bones bleach
before the blazing light of purity
chained to the mountain top
the waste of heaven falls upon me
my wrists are a grisly red
from the bonds of justice
now I understand
why men look to the ceaseless sky

I toyed with the mortal gift of thought

I pondered through the ruins of mystery
I scoffed at the altar of solace
In the ruins I dreamt nothing
I raised my lance to the sky
cursing those dust covered statues
then a raindrop stuck brow
and the oceans of the sky fell

The mountains sank into the sea

the crumbling earth had betrayed me
fleeing to nowhere sanctuary barred
the rainwound begins to bleed

Grim haunts of the heavens and hells

emerged from the cracks in the sky and the rocks
a mob of fiends encircled me
through undivine ascension I was taken to the gods

I was made to kneel

before the gods
their stares peeled flesh and bone
bludgeoning my soul
for insolence in denial
I was to make penance
and my legacy was to grasp my kind

On the mountaintop I was put

An iron chain bore into the wound
linking my mind with the heavens above
forever thought was taken from us

Bring Your Daughter to the Slaughter


Honey it's getting close to midnight
And all the myths are still in town
True love and lipstick on your linen
Bite the pillow, make no sound
If there's some living to be done
Before your life becomes your tomb
You'd better know I'm the one
Unchain your back door, invite me around

Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go
Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go
Let her go, yeah!

Honey it's getting close to daybreak
The Sun is creeping in the sky
No patent remedies for heartache
Just empty words and humble pie

So get down on your knees Honey
Assume an attitude
You just pray that I'll be waiting
'Cause you know, you know I'm coming soon

Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go
Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go

So pick up your foolish pride, no going back
Nowhere, no way, no place to hide, let her go

Bring in your daughter
Bring in your daughter
Bring in your daughter
Bring in your daughter
Bring in your daughter
Bring in your daughter
To the slaughter

Bring in your daughter
Fetch your daughter
Bring in your daughter
Fetch your daughter
Bring in your daughter
Fetch your daughter
To the slaughter

Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go
Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go
Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go

Let her go, let her go, let her go

I'm coming to get you now!
