Betray The Light

"Betray The Light" (2005 EP)

1. The Price of LIfe
2. What Remains
3. Dead To Me
4. Betray The Light

1. The Price of LIfe

So high, the price of life…

Oppression reeking, stench of hate denied mortality,
Weeping victims broken cries awash in agony
Delight in death for deaths own sake you toil in misery!

The corpses heaping high…
Deaths gaunt scowl presides
Blood consecrates this stand
Sanctified, none shall stay my hand!

And now it’s time you die
You’ve lived for far too long
Vengeance swells inside of me
The price of life is high
Soon to claim its toll
Your end will come to pass
Drowning in your sobbing children’s blood

Your god betrays your faith
You’re left behind with your worthless prayers
This lie has crippled your mind
And leads you to your death so blind

I’d bleed to watch you suffer
My soul to see you bleed
To end your life consumes me
To have your throat before me
I’d throttle out your life
I'll take back what is due me
And end you and your kind

The price of life is high
An eye for an eye!
Know that wrath will come
Your blood will spill
And wash away this pain

2. What Remains

What remains when all has gone,
When embers fade and twilight dawns
When dashed hopes and faded dreams
Crowd the soul as silence screams
To desperate nights and dismal days
To solitude and dark dismay
The failed fights and wasted years
The bloody paths and trails of tears
What remains but death and lies?
What’s left for man when dreams have died
When sorrow calls and troubles rise
When winters ice denies the day
When all is dead and swept away
When empty void consumes the Soul
And vile venom takes it hold
When mourning’s veiled shroud descends
And suffering life is slow to end?

What remains to be? The blind will never see...
Spare me from disgrace this shame I cannot face

Standing by with blinded eyes led to slaughter, crucified…
Denied by all, betrayed in time - wasted dreams, tired lives

Children of a barren future, a wasted crop of flesh
Fodder for the teeming masses bred of ignorance
A sacrifice to long fallen gods, the ancient rite prescribes
A right to slaughter, consent to kill, a fucking human bribe
My eyes grow sad, my heavy heart longs to beat its last
How could it all have come this,
How could this come to pass?
My weary mind, so crazed by time
Locked away to roam
Abandoned to the desolation darkness take me home…

3. Dead To Me

I will not be taken
I will not be broken
Nor will I be blinded
By these lies unspoken
Elusive truths escape
Evil subjugates
Knees scarred now unbending
No longer the broken dog
Dead…Soon to be
Dead…Dead to me

Too much blood has seeped away
And tainted black these days
This soul in dark decline will respond in kind
Vengeance my redemption, cold heartless perfection
Away, flee now in terror from the hell from which you sprang

Abandoned to bleed, dead and buried
Yet every night it haunts my dreams
Memories plead and emptiness breeds
The specter swells inside of me
I beg to be free, devoid of mercy
You feed upon my tortured screams
Now you will be dead to me
To suffer in the burning blackness
