Soul Kept Bearers

Written By: HI8US

EXPLOSION LIGHTS THE SKY
FOLLOWED BY SCARS OF THE SOUL KEPT BEARERS
WE PUNISH WITH OUR LIVES
MISSING THE POINT WITH THE HATE FILLED TERROR
STEP INSIDE THIS REALM OF REDEMPTION
CHAMBER OF SIN IN THE DEVILS SECTION
THE KEY TO YOUR RESURECTIONS BEEN LOCKED
BEEN FOOLED BY FATE
AND SOME HATED HEARTS STOP
TAKES YOUR WHOLE DAMN LIFE TO FIND YOUR PLACE IN LIFE
IF YOU LOOK YOU CAN FIND THERES SOME MEANING INSIDE
HERES A PICTURE OF YOU THIS IS ONLY FOR YOU
FATHER ABOVE I NEED YOUR GUIDANCE TOO

SHACKLES GRAB LEATHER PULLS MY CHEST
BREAKS MY HEART WHEN SAD SOULS LAY TO REST
THE BOOK THEY WROTE SEEMS SO TRUE
SO YOU BETTER KNOW YOU

FATHER ABOVE x4

FOLLOW YOUR SOUL
SOUL KEPT BEARERS

BLINDED BY THE FIRE
SHARPENING BLADES AND SHELLS ENGAGED
ALL WE HAVE IS HIGHER
WHO COULD BE NEXT HAVE YOU BEEN BLESSED
THEN A BATTLE BEGINS A FUCKIN' SHOWER OF SINS
THEY FIRE IT ALL NEITHER SIDE STANDS TALL
IT IS UNDERSTOOD THIS IS HOW ITS TO BE
ALWAYS KILL MINE INSTEAD YOU KILL THREE
SORRY FOREVER CLOSE THE BOOK AS I SHIVER
COCKING THE GUN WHICH SIDE DELIVERS
FUNERAL FOR SINNERS WE PRAY FOR YOU
RACE OF FORGIVENESS WE ALL SHALL RISE

UNITED AS ONE A FORCE THAT BATTLES TOGETHER
ULTIMATE SOUL OF GODS FOREVER

HANGING ON INSTINCTIVE THOUGHTS

FATHER ABOVE x4

FOLLOW YOUR SOUL
SOUL KEPT BEARERS

I See the Way, The Truth and the Life
no One Tells me Wrong!
All that is known, has been achieved
My Heart, My World Lives On!
Everything Revolves, round just one thing
_ This Heavy Life!
Wailing daylight Hours, Prosper darkness
_ Existence
PAS-SES BY ME

Hard Times’ Payment, so Fulfilling
when Every Hard-Earned Breath is Given
I Cannot Tell Difficulties
to Gratify this Time of Living
Weak &Worthless Fall the Wayside
as Dedication Reveals Vanquish
we’ll GET OURS IN THE END
a Promise of the Blissful Outcome!

Will Not Give Up Determined are the Brave
Foundation Strong Shall Not Perish This Day
Built By My Own A Manifest of Sacrifice
Will Never Fall Striving for All Years Throughout This…Life

I Go My Way
Bleeding Silent
I Fuel the Fire
that Burns Inside My……MIND------------------------------

For Some the Candles Burn at Both Ends
Forfeit Time that you spend
the Path of Honor and Value
Robbery of This Is Sought From You

This Life---------)

Blindly Intense with Fire that Flickers in Dismay
Across the Slope, Adversity Like Ice Wind in the Face
a Fuse of Length, Twisted in Knots Can Light the Shorter Side
the Clock Endures and Does Not Stop, for One to Gain on Life

Much Undone-----
no Time to Live Again
Live on That in Hand
and Keep the Medals of Commitment
Hammer the Stone
for One Day It May Burst
and For your Years of Strife
Take Control and Claim What’s Yours
Never set aside your dreams
they Are your driving force

Will Not Give Up (8x)

Mind Set on Dreams, So Distant
Never out of reach, Just grab it
Always there, can’t you taste it
I am the one that holds my Throne (2x)
