Rate Lyrics/Poems Game #2

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Dawn Bringer Invictus, Dec 1, 2010.

  1. 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 !

     
  2. 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​

    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
     
  4. 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

    <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!
