ABRAXAS LYRICS

Outlook: Not So Good

"Outlook: Not So Good" (2007 Demo)

1. Midnight Society
2. Pieces Of Eight
3. Paradise Now







1. Midnight Society

That time again
We take the front seat
Anticipating what to come
We sit and waste
As our mindsí erased
And watch them tell what someone's done
Innocence acts as a catalyst for fear
As it mutates and grows
We sense that it is near
As the flames burn higher they illuminate the sky
The sand goes on
The time has come
Submitted for

Approval of them all

Smile at the grinner's revenge
Feed the demons in so many heads
Think how it could be explained
Addictive it is
Are you afraid of this?
Lets all go and join the midnight society
Society
Watching in fear all the same
To fill the void between pleasure and pain

Iím so cold
Says a pail faced boy known as the lonely soul
They left him there to die
But now he's back to haunt them in the night
They gather to speak as the
Midnight society

And I believed
Like so many do
In what we see
Some stood and fought some were appeased
But no one escapes until their appetites are pleased
Sadistic pleasure in the pain of others resides
In that dark places in millions of minds
But look closer its not hard to find
As the clock strikes 12
Welcome to hell
Submitted for

Approval of them all

Fear the walls when they speak
Hear the voices that come from beneath
Tortured and beaten insane
To hard to realise this is only a game
Lets all go and join the midnight society
Society
Watching in fear all the same
To fill the void between pleasure and pain

Iím so cold
Says a pail faced boy known as the lonely soul
They left him there to die
But now heís back to haunt them in the night
They gather to speak as the
Midnight society

And so it gets done
Corrupting their minds
Get them when their young
And when they kill it in your name
De-sensitised
To pain

Smile at the grinner's revenge
Feed the demons in so many heads
Think how it could be explained
Addictive it is
Are you afraid of this?
Lets all go and join the midnight society
Society
Watching in fear all the same
To fill the void between pleasure and pain




2. Pieces Of Eight

Alone in this place at night
With no one there sheís lonely
He stalks his prey with insanity
Plaguing his eyes
Creeping through the door
Those that sleep will be no more
As he watches his victims
Under the cover of the night

Shaken we hear
How he butchers, why heís feared
Awake in their minds
Scared to the bone
Itís the thought of being the next victim

Save me
As he gets to work on his prey
Take me away
As he cuts them into pieces of eight
Wont let that happen to me
Consumed by fear at the stories that they teach
But cant get away from its grip
Hearing how he butchers them
Into pieces of eight

Fear is in the air
He draws his blade, the end is near
The thought of retribution
Doesnít trouble this twisted mind
As he chops through flesh and bone
Reality is gone in a world of his own
As madness takes control
He slays them in their home

Shaken we hear
How he butchers, why heís feared
Invading their minds
Scared to the bone
Itís the thought of being the next victim

Save me
As he gets to work on his prey
Take me away
As he cuts them into pieces of eight
Wont let that happen to me
Consumed by fear at the stories that they teach
But cant get away from its grip
Hearing how he butchers them
Into pieces of eight

Strange how we can never seem to erase the thoughts from our minds

Victims
Too young to understand
Blessed
With the innocence of youth
Time will tell
But the stories they will dwell
All I know is
I know that Iíve done my time
These thoughts have consumed my whole mind

These things that were passed on to me
I know I can't believe
But as time goes by
I know that nothing will escape
Like the pieces of eight
Like the pieces of eight

Wont let that happen to me
Consumed by fear at the stories that they teach
But cant get away from its grip
Hearing how he butchers them
Into pieces of eight

Pieces of eight




3. Paradise Now

As you walk through the ruins
Of the city you knew and loved that never stood
Now surrounded by these walls that are imposed on you
Like beasts in a cage
Families ripped and torn apart
By a machine that creates destruction in its path
Pride takes control, revenge it is well overdue
But soon you'll be in paradise

Paradise now

A farewell to a suppressed existence
This is for you my brothers in war
A farewell to a life too hard to comprehend
When a sentence to death stands for a glorious end

The end of

An unfulfilled destiny
And a hatred that fuels the pain and agony
As you say goodbye, no remorse from a world that watches you die
A better life on the other side
The other side they live in peace
On the other side, not surrounded by war torn streets
A world away but the paradise of death it awaits
And soon you'll be in paradise

Paradise now

A farewell to a suppressed existence
This is for you my brothers in war
A farewell to a life too hard to comprehend
When a sentence to death stands for a glorious end

Desperate for the relief
Longing for a sense of worth and of peace
Years in the shadows
Hiding from the torment that rains down on you

And you feel like a pawn in this game
Pushed and moved out the way
Every road, now exhausted and worn
A voice will never be heard
Suicide

To sell your soul to their cause
To give your life in their name
To live in constant decay
The soul and only way

Now you see it
The light that leads you away
And you know, to survive
Means falling deeper and deeper
Into this black hole

As you look into the camera eye
For the last time
They all, they pray for you
The martyr

Oblivious to the intentions that you keep
And the salvation that you seek
Your own mother she waits for you
Never to return

War
Genocide
Suicide
Or paradise

Paradise now

A farewell to a suppressed existence
This is for you my brothers in war
A farewell to a life too hard to comprehend
When a sentence to death stands for a glorious end

The end of
