The Kinslayer

Album: Wishmaster (2000)
  • For whom the gun tolls
    For whom the prey weeps
    Bow before a war
    Call it religion

    Some wounds never heal
    Some tears never will
    Dry for the unkind
    Cry for mankind

    Even the dead cry
    Their only comfort
    Kill your friend, I don't care
    Orchid kids, blinded stare

    Need to understand
    No need to forgive
    No truth no sense left to be followed

    Facing this unbearable fear
    like meeting an old friend

    "Time to die, poor mates,
    You made me what I am!"

    In this world of a million religions
    everyone prays the same way

    "Your praying is in vain
    It'll all be over soon"

    Father help me, save me a place by your side!

    "There is no God Our creed is but for ourselves"
    "Not a hero unless you die Our species eat the wounded ones"

    Drunk with the blood of your victims
    I do feel your pity-wanting pain,
    Lust for fame, a deadly game

    "Run away with your impeccable kin!"

    "Good wombs hath borne bad sons"

    Cursing, God, why?
    Falling for every lie
    Survivors' guilt
    In us forevermore

    Fifteen candles
    Redeemers of this world
    Dwell in hypocrisy:
    "How were we supposed to know?"

    Four pink ones
    Nine blue ones
    Two black ones Writer/s: Erno Matti Juhani Vuorinen, Jukka Antero Nevalainen, Sami Tuure Petteri Vaenskae, Tarja Soile Susanna Turunen, Tero Kalle Sakari Kinnunen, Tuomas Lauri Johannes Holopainen
