At The Gates - Slaughter Of The Soul

Artist: At The Gates
Release: Slaughter Of The Soul


1. Blinded By Fear

We are blind to the world within us
Waiting to be born

I cast aside my chains
Fall from reality
Purgatory unleashed
Now burn the face of the earth
Purgatory unleashed
Now burn the face of the earth

The face of all your fears
All your fears unleashed
The face of all your fears

Born of the demon sky
Twisting reality
Sweet nauseating pain
Is death the only release?
Nauseating pain
Is death the only release?

The face of all your fears
All your fears unleashed
The face of all your fears

The face of all your fears

I cast aside my chains
Fall from reality
Suicidal disease
The face of all your fears
Now covered with sores
Humanity exiled
Purgatory unleashed
Now burn the face of the earth
Purgatory unleashed
Now burn the face of the earth

The face of all your fears
All your fears unleashed
The face of all your fears

2. Slaughter Of The Soul

Never again
On your forcefed illusions to choke
You feed off my pain
Feed off my life

There won’t be another dawn
We will reap as we have sown

Always the same
My tired eyes have seen enough
Of all your lies
My hate is blind

There won’t be another dawn
We will reap as we have sown

Slaughter of the soul
Suicidal final art
Children born of sin
Tear your soul apart

Never again
My tired eyes have seen enough
Of all your lies
My hate is blind

There won’t be another dawn
We will reap as we have sown

Slaughter of the soul
Suicidal final art
Children born of sin
Tear your soul apart

3. Cold

To rid the earth of the filth
To rid the earth of the lies
The will to rise above
Tearing my inside out

I feel my soul go cold
Only the dead are smiling

To rid your heart of all lies
Their poison tongues, poison hearts
Burning cold
Now let the final darkness fall

I feel my soul go cold
Only the dead are smiling

‘The dream of the new disease
On wings of euphoria
Sucking terror from the needle scars’

22 years of pain
And I can feel it closing in
The will to rise above
Tearing my insides out

I feel my soul go cold
Only the dead are smiling

4. Under A Serpent Sun

Web of corruption thick with deceit
The language of destruction, the slaughter of the meek

Under a serpent sun, we shall all live as one

No rest for the wicked, the children of god
The final retribution, the final curtain torn
Within us, the flames of the end
Survival of the fittest, the hunt for the sacred game

Under a serpent sun, we shall all live as one

Children of chaos, born of holocaust seed
Inherit the addiction, angels of genocide breed
Within us, the flames of the end
Survival of the fittest, the hunt for the sacred game

Under a serpent sun, we shall all live as one

Sweet-fleshed, hellbent creature
Artist of the fevered soul
Heavenly, venomous rapture
Stricken numb by fear I fall
Stricken numb by fear I fall

5. Into The Dead Sky

[Instrumental]

6. Suicide Nation

Utopia lost in chaos
As the sky turns black
Suicide legacy
There is no turning back
No turning back

Retribution answers cold
Moving in for the kill
Deep hideous festering
Bestial spidemic, repulsive need

Control, control

Suicide nation
Mass-appeal, death-addiction
Dead but dreaming
Restrained by phobia, brainwashed into submission

Control, control

Suicide
Jaws locked around your spine
Locked around your spine

‘The face of evil is always the face of total need…’

Retribution answers cold
Moving in for the kill
Deep hideous festering
Bestial spidemic, repulsive need

Control, control

Suicide, jaws locked around your spine

7. World Of Lies

Degeneration tears your black skies
The final descent for the last in life
No joy in our tired lives, the torment builds inside
The sun sets forever on a world of lies
World of lies

World of lies
Non-divine
Release me

Demonic vultures feed on your mind
Disarmed of all your pride you die
No life in our alien eyes, the blind lead the blind
The sun sets forever on the non-divine
Non-divine

World of lies
Non-divine
Release me

Final psychotic eclipse
Painted in the colours of war
Final psychotic eclipse
A world drenched in blood

Degeneration tears your blackened eyes
The final descent for the last in life
No joy in our tired lives, the torment builds inside
The sun sets forever on a world of lies
World of lies

World of lies
Non-divine
Release me

‘And it’s his illusions
About what constitutes the real world which are inhibiting him…
His reality, his reason, his society
These are what must be destroyed’

Final psychotic eclipse
Painted in the colours of war
Final psychotic eclipse
A world drenched in blood of the innocent

8. Unto Others

You hold high the banner of self-deceit
Encaged in the dogmas of life, you join the elite

My Judas
Window stays shut, shut forever more
My Judas
Window stays shut, shut forever more

You mock the weak for not giving you their trust
In your world of make believe, where statues turn to dust

My Judas
Window stays shut, shut forever more
My Judas
Window stays shut, shut forever more

You walk through what is me
Stare blind, cannot see
Your thoughts flee to a different land
They are free, but you are bound

Silenced forever, the walls are closing in
The keys to our damnation
Burial
Burial within

My Judas
Window stays shut, shut forever more
My Judas
Window stays shut, shut forever more

Shut forever more

9. Nausea

Release me from your world of lies
I cannot bear this pain
Degenerate machinery
The monsters we create
The monsters we create

Nausea, oh sweet nausea

Genetic barcode hell
Mental genocide
Repulsive human shells
Choke on the fruits of life
Choke on the fruits of life

Nausea, oh sweet nausea

Cold stare, starving eyes
Blinded, tired lives
Release me from this pain
Unknown to man

Nausea, oh sweet nausea

Cold stare, starving eyes
Blinded, tired lives
Release me from this pain
Unknown to man
Unknown to man

‘The family structure
Victory over adversity
Through the family
Mix the god and country
Add the ten hour day
And you had what was needed…’

10. Need

‘Because of my love for all living
I choose to die’

Open me, with your kiss of steel
End my pain
Set me free

For we are enslaved, forever enslaved

Open me, with your kiss of steel
End my pain
Set me free
Live only to die some more
Need
Killing yourself to live

For we are enslaved, forever enslaved

Lay your fears to rest, fears to rest
Let your dreams awake, dreams awake

For we are enslaved, forever enslaved

Lay your hate to rest, open me

11. The Flames Of The End

[Instrumental]

12. Legion

[Slaughter Lord cover]

13. The Dying

Reality – she feeds off me
Steal my eyes so that I can’t see
Blinding me for all eternity

Distorted dreams of our reality
Building walls around our lives
While we’re staring with eyes that deceive
As the eagle dives again

As daylight is torn
Our sins are reborn
Sweet nihilistic angel of war

Distorted dreams of our reality
Crucified, refusing to die
We are staring blind into a void of lies
As the eagle dives again

As daylight is torn
Our sins are reborn
Sweet nihilistic angel of war

Dying reality
Stereotyped insanity
Sweet nihilistic angel of war

Reality – she feeds off me
Steal my eyes so that I can’t see
Blinding me for all eternity

As daylight is torn
Our sins are reborn
Sweet nihilistic angel of war

Dying reality
Stereotyped insanity
Sweet nihilistic angel of war

Together with the vermin of deception
Extinction lives and breathes in us
Degeneration
Extinction lives and breathes in us
Degeneration
Degeneration
Degeneration
Degeneration

14. Captor Of Sin

[Slayer cover]

Harlots of hell spread your wings
As I penetrate your soul
Feel the fire shoot through your body
As I slip into your throne
Cast aside, do as you will
I care not how you plead
Satan’s child now stalks the earth
Born from my demon seed

Hot wings of hell
Burns in my wake
Death is what you pray
Behold captor of sin

Infernal slaves of manipulation
Captive of my vice
Abandon God, the helpless one
To relieve you of your plight
Subversive action will not help
It will strengthen me
I see decline in your every move
Death your final plea

Hot wings of hell
Burns in my wake
Death is what you pray
Behold captor of sin

Your skin turns to leather
I ignite your timid blood
You feel my lethal touch
As I grasp your weary soul
I’ll take you down into the fire

Infernal slaves of manipulation
Captive of my vice
Abandon God, the helpless one
To relieve you of your plight
Subversive action will not help
It will strengthen me
I see decline in your every move
Death your final plea

Hot wings of hell
Burns in my wake
Death is what you pray
Behold captor of sin

15. Bister Verklighet

[No Security cover]

Hur länge ska folk mördas
I sin kamp för frihet

Det här är ingen film
Det här är verklighet
Det här är ingen film
Det här är verklighet

Folket kräver en fristad
När staten törstar efter deras blod

Det här är ingen film
Det här är verklighet
Det här är ingen film
Det här är fan verklighet

Hur länge ska folk mördas
I sin kamp för frihet

Det här är ingen film
Det här är verklighet
Det här är ingen film
Det här är fan verklighet

Folket kräver en fristad
När staten törstar efter deras blod

Det här är ingen film
Det här är verklighet
Det här är ingen film

[Rough English translation:

How long will people be murdered
In their struggle for freedom

This is not a movie
This is reality
This is not a movie
This is reality

The people demand a sanctuary
When the state is dying for their blood

This is not a movie
This is reality
This is not a movie
This is fan reality

How long will people be murdered
In their struggle for freedom

This is not a movie
This is reality
This is not a movie
This is fan reality

The people demand a sanctuary
When the state is dying for their blood

This is not a movie
This is reality
This is not a movie]
