Arch Enemy Blood In The Water

There’s blood in the water

There’s fear in the air

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth

And we’re all running scared

Ashes to ashes

And dust to dust while bombs never rust

Watch the war on your screen

Yesterday’s ideals were just a dream

There’s blood in the water

Round and round we go

Where this will end nobody knows

There’s profit in prophets

Too much money in lies

Missiles fueled by hatred

As the blind lead the blind

Round and round we go

Where this will end nobody knows

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

Have we finally run out of road?

You can’t build a wall high enough

Can’t dig a deep enough hole

Equality, now a profanity

Wave goodbye to humanity

There’s a monster under your bed

You created it so don’t be scared

Round and round we go

Where this will end nobody knows

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

Have we finally run out of road?

You can’t build a wall high enough

Can’t dig a deep enough hole

There’s blood in the water

There’s fear in the air

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth

And we’re all running scared

There’s blood in the water

Eye for an eye

There’s blood in the water

There’s blood in the water

Eye for an eye

Arch Enemy Bloodstained Cross

Gripping the strength of belief

Old tales and lies you trust

In the end there is no relief

A final breath you’re breathing dust

[Lead – Christopher]

Get up off your praying knees

The door is about to slam shut

Armageddon, drawing near

As darkness engulfs your soul

All the prayers in this world

Won’t help you now

You deceived, they believed

In your bloodstained cross

You deceived, they believed

In your bloodstained cross

A perverted truth your reality

Forced your beliefs on the weak

Power twisted by years of abuse

The strong shall inherit the meek

Get up off your praying knees

The door is about to slam shut

Armageddon, drawing near

As darkness engulfs your soul

All the prayers in this world

Won’t help you now

You deceived, they believed

In your bloodstained cross

You deceived, they believed

In your bloodstained cross

[Mike solo]

You deceived, they believed

In your bloodstained cross

You deceived, they believed

In your bloodstained cross

[Harmony lead – Michael & Christopher]

[Under solo:]

All the prayers in this world

Won’t help you now

Arch Enemy Silent Wars

This is killing us

Fighting the truth a losing battle

We believe in nothing

Just hatred for each other

Tragic sinister serenade

Twisted melody shatters reality

Dying hopes for a better day

Fragile dreams that break away

No more, no more

This pain must end

We have chosen to suffer

Believe in nothing but…

Hatred is a vicious circle

Betrayal is at hand

Paralysed souls bleeding

Begging for salvation

Deeper and deeper the wounds we cut

The truth burning our flesh

Silent war to set us free

Stigmata of a tragedy

No more, no more

This pain must end

We have chosen to suffer

Feeling nothing but hate

It’s eating us up from the inside

Taking our feelings away

Arch Enemy Seed Of Hate

The shape of all my doubts… My fear

Come closer… Trust me

Here I stand in the falling rain

There is no joy inside these tears

I see the world through a twisted and bitter stare

To be where I have been… to see what I have seen

Is it a dream?

Or can I believe…

The memories will haunt me for evermore

The shape of all my doubts… My fear

Come closer… I trusted you

I am not the man you used to know

I am different… Everything is different now

When you left me, you planted a seed of hate in me

Nothing is stronger… Stronger than this

Arch Enemy Pilgrim

From the womb, to the tomb

An eternal struggle for the holy truth

We are not the first, nor shall we be the last

We shall be followed by thousands more

Study the scriptures – Intensify the faith

The works of men much greater than you or I

From the cradle to the grave

Thousands of immortal souls just waiting to be saved!

Pilgrim man – What are you searching for?

Believe the tales when everything else fails

Pilgrim man – Deep in your heart you know

Your faith is already bought and sold

All my life I served the cross

Always believing my God was a just one

I maimed for you – I killed for you

But looking back at my life

I just don’t know anymore…

Arch Enemy Vultures

[Intro – Michael & Christopher]

[Lead – Christopher]

Breathing life into these mares where enemies turn into flesh

This is the abyss I fear the most – I feel their eyes staring at me

Waiting with carnivorous patience, their memory timeless

For all they know I must succumb sometime…

[Lead – Michael]

A solemn cry rises to the sky as heavy wings blacken out

The morning sun with infinite darkness. Am I dreaming or am I dead?

In search for my heart – Lost in this hell

The vultures are soaring above – Tearing me apart

[Lead – Christopher]

Screaming Voices in my head. A sudden pain then deadly silence

Devouring the remains of my heart – I can feel it dying

[Lead – Christopher]

Picking at the bones of my soul

Left me dead inside

The more I gave the more they took

Left me dead inside

[Lead – Michael]

[Outro – Michael & Christopher]

Arch Enemy Beast Of Man

Beware the beast of man

For he’s the devils pawn

Alone among god’s primates

He kills for sport, lust or greed

The sacred scrolls…

The truth unfolds…

Shun him – or become like him

Shun him – the beast of man

Let him not breed in great numbers

For he will make a dessert of his home and yours

Shun him – drive him back into his jungle lair

For he is the harbinger of death

Arch Enemy The Immortal

This liquid vision of euphoria

Living a life on borrowed time

Paying the price of immortality

Desperately avoiding our fate

Lead me through the halls of tortured souls

Alone, forlorn… human dignity dethroned

Forevermore – A life never ending

Time stands still as the immortals keep on breeding

The future is locked within us

All we need is the key

Crying at the fountain of youth

Eternal life is killing me

Triumphant in chariots they ride

On this arena of the undead

Another lap of honour for the…

Vacant galleries

Lead me through the halls of tortured souls

Alone, forlorn… human dignity dethroned

Forevermore – A life never ending

Time stands still as the immortals keep on breeding

Arch Enemy Through The Eyes Of A Raven

Broken bodies stiff from storms

Our spirits scarred to ice

The only witness left alive

The raven and its staring eyes

Taste the blood

Hear their cries

Horrifying genocide

We lost our paradise

Through the eyes of the raven

See the slaughter, your crimes

They will remember

And so shall I

[Melody – Christopher]

When I die

Let the ravens fly

Let my body lie

Under snow and blood

The wolves of war at your throat

Leave nothing but severed bones

Scattered upon battlefields

Life is the price you pay

He who is proud is not for long

He who is brave will be destroyed

Your murder a heavy crown

Layered with thorns of shame

Through the eyes of the raven

See the slaughter, your crimes

They will remember

And so shall I

[Melody – Christopher]

When I die

Let the ravens fly

Let my body lie

Under snow and blood

[2x]
