Lyrics that make you think Demon!

Recommended Posts

What song lyrics make you think about your Demon character or think of the game as a whole?

Here is one of mine:

"It can't be all coincedence, Too many things are evident

You tell me you're an unbeliever, Spirtualist? well me I'm neither

But wouldn't you like to know the thruth, Of what's out there to have the proof

And find out just which side you're on, Where would you end, in heaven or in hell

Help me help me to find my true self without seeing the future

Save me save me from myself, Even within my dreams."

Infinate Dreams by Iron Maiden

A song for the Faithful, who keep their hope even in a World of Darkness and might yet be its salvation:

"If theres a God or any kind of justice under the sky

If theres a point, if theres a reason to live or die

If theres an answer to the questions we feel bound to ask

Show yourself - destroy our fears - release your mask

Oh yeah, we'll keep on trying

Hey - tread that fine line

Yeah, we'll keep on smiling

And whatever will be - will be

We'll just keep on trying

Till the end of time"

Queen - Innuendo

War of Wrath inspired.

A Perfect Circle - Fiddle And The Drum Lyrics

And so once again,

My dear Johnny, my dear friend,

And so once again you are fighting us all,

And when I ask you why,

You raise your sticks and cry, and I fall,

Oh, my friend,

How did you come?,

To trade the fiddle for the drum,

You say I have turned,

Like the enemies you've earned,

But I can remember,

All the good things you are,

And so I ask you please,

Can I help you find the peace and the star?,

Oh, my friend,

What time is this?,

To trade the handshake for the fist

And so once again,

Oh, America my friend,

And so once again,

You are fighting us all,

And when we ask you why,

You raise your sticks and cry and we fall,

Oh, my friend,

How did you come,

To trade the fiddle for the drum

You say we have turned,

Like the enemies you've earned,

But we can remember,

All the good things you are,

And so we ask you please,

Can we help you find the peace and the star?,

Oh my friend,

We have all come,

To fear the beating of your drum

Almost anything by Fields of the Nephilim (and "side-project" the Nephilim").

1. Still Life

Rise, rise, rise, rise......

"We shall crush you down to the point, where there is no coming back, things will happen to you from which you could not recover if you lived a thousand years, a thousand years."

Still life

Imitating man

In another life,

in a stranger land,

Am I dreaming I am awake,

Is this hell or second sight

Are we born again like shadows

Outside of time

"Feel I'm walking outside, circled around me are these faceless figures watching me, as if they are waiting for something to happen... then it happens."

And that's just from the intro to the album Zoon.

Here's another intro from Mourningsun entitled Shroud.

As was mentioned on another post recently, Dark Angel by VNV nation is disturbingly close..

Heh.. I bought my MP3 player to work.

"In your dreams you see me clear,

I have no restraint, no fear,

Powerless I watched from faces I'd assumed.

My purpose set, my will defined,

Caress the air, embrace the skies,

escape the sorrow and restraint of mortal cities.

Give me time I will be clear,

given time you'll understand,

what possesses me, to write what you have suffered.

I'm in this mood because of scorn,

I'm in a mood for total war.

To the darkened skies once more

and ever onward.

So many years I stood among,

the thoughts and fears of those I served,

among my own I was alone, through my own doing.

All the years I walked unknown,

behind the faces I assumed,

powerless to clear your minds of what you've suffered.

They fall again.

They fall again.

Give me time I will be clear,

given time you'll understand,

what possesses me, to write what you have suffered.

I'm in this mood because of scorn,

I'm in a mood for total war.

To the darkened skies once more, and ever onward.

There is no faith in which to hide,

even truth is filled with lies,

doubting angels fall, to walk among the living.

I'm in this mood because of scorn,

I'm in a mood for total war.

To the darkened skies once more, and ever onward.

I'd only come here, seeking peace,

I'd only come here, seeking me,

[repeats]

It seems I came to leave."

Something more hopeful:

Monoral - Kiri

You complete my fate

The world unwinds inside of me

You complete my fate

The halo crawls away

You repeat my fate

Rewinding all we can

You refill my place

You refill my place

Come and save me

Come and save me

You complete my fate

The heavens stroll inside of me

You repeat my fate

Revealing who we are

You refill my place

You refill my place

Come and save me

Come and save me

Come and save me

(Believe in me and drink the wine and take my hand and fill me up)

Come and save me

(Believe in me and drink the wine and take my hand and fill me up)

Come and save me

Believe in me and

Drink the wine and

Take my hand and

Fill me up

Believe in me and

Drink the wine and

Take my hand and

Let me follow

Incidentally, the anime that allowed me to discover this song (Ergo Proxy) is definitely worth a look for Demon fans. ;)

she's made of hair and bone and little teeth

and things I cannot speak

she comes on like a crippled plaything

spine is just a string

I wrapped our love in all this foil

silver-tight like spider legs

I never wanted it to ever spoil

but flies will always lay their eggs

Take your hatred out on me

make your victim my head

you never ever believed in me

I am your tourniquet

prosthetic synthesis with butterfly

sealed up with virgin stitch

if it hurts, baby please tell me

preserve the innocence

I never wanted it to end like this

but flies will lay their eggs

"Tourniquet" by Marilyn Manson. It actually seems to fit well, for a song about some twisted kind of High Torment demon, or an abused, broken Thrall.

Sorry to drop all that in there again but that is a seriously cool song. Not able to remember any lyrics right now but VNV Nation have several that remind me of Demon.

Almost anything by Fields of the Nephilim (and "side-project" the Nephilim").

Yes.

Fields of the Nephilim is the unofficial theme music of our demon chronicle. The lyrics from Mourning Sun, complete with passages from the revelations (this is the best fan transcription of the lyrics I could find, the bits in brackets are whispered in the background, the bits in 'hard' brackets are recited)

Fields of the Nephilim - Mourning Sun

"(We’re here)

[Then I saw a new Heaven]

(Light)

(Rise)

(You evolve in my time)

[For the first Heaven and the first Earth have passed away]

[Then I saw a new Heaven]

Yeah, We are Fallen

Like the mourning sun

We are waking up

Yeah, We are Fallen

Like the mourning sun

It's just begun

This old world will pass away

This is the dawn of our new day

We didn’t fall from Heaven

We didn’t fall for you

Rise!

We’ve fallen like rain

I’ve been waiting for the day

And the light has made

I will rise again

And our wings will unfold

And be painted like gold

And I saved my soul

I’m alive again

I will rise again

(like the mourning sun)

We will rise again

(like the mourning sun)

[Then I saw a new heaven and a new Earth,

The first Heaven and the first Earth have passed away]"

Etheral, how about Kingdom or Honour?

"I believe that we'll conceive

To make in hell for us a heaven.

A brave new world.

A promised land.

A fortitude of hearts and minds.

Until I see this kingdom is mine,

I'll turn the darkness into light.

I'll guide the blind.

My will be done until the day

I see this kingdom has been won"

This song just screams "Earthbound"

ManOWar - The Demon's Whip

Black candles slowly burning, white fangs and flashing eyes

Hell's wind and incantations summon living fire,

Darkest forces and your demon's black order, black king

The cult that serves the living, accept this offering

Black candles slowly burning, white fangs and flashing eyes

Hell's wind and incantations summon living fire,

As the seven steps aqait, hear the great bell toll

With a dead man's bones conjure, the enemy of the soul

From the misery and sadness, of the molten seas of hell

Mystic love and mystic symbols in evil dreams there dwell

Darkest forces and your demon's black order, black king

The cult that serves the living, accept this offering

A deadly drink, a meal of hearts, now sacrifice and die

In darkness and destruction, behold the evil eye

And the Demon's whip

Armies of the gods of hell ride across the atral plane

Bearing curses of destruction, sworn beyond the grave

Children of the darkness, all born but to deceive

By the ancient code of evil grant not one reprieve

In the place where evil dwells death can live when all life dies

Wage eternal war on heaven immortal hate below the sky

Your scripture and your sermons, are leaves borne on the wind

To heal the unrepentant one needs a greater sin

Night winds, Oblivion see my dark desire

Come forth, appear he is living fire

Feel the Demon's whip

Armies of the gods of hell ride across the atral plane

Bearing curses of destruction, sworn beyond the grave

Children of the darkness, all born but to deceive

By the ancient code of evil grant not one reprieve

In the place where evil dwells death can live when all life dies

Wage eternal war on heaven immortal hate below the sky

Your scripture and your sermons, are leaves borne on the wind

To heal the unrepentant one needs a greater sin

There's an air of demonic worship/possession in Opeth's the Grand Conjuration.

Majesty

Faithful me

Pour yourself

Into me

Wield your power

Martyr's price

Stare me down

To the ground

The eyes of the devil

Fixed on his sinners

Slake my thirst

Eternal wealth

Heathen key

Round my neck

This poetry

Our blasphemy

Know the sounds

Of infamy

The hands of Satan

Assembling his flock

Pale horse rider

Searching the earth

Whispered conjuration

A belief takes form

Choking hand tapping

The veins in your throat

His orders in your mouth

A decree for domination

Beneath the tides of wisdom

Spins the undertow of hate

Injected seeds of vengeance

Usurper's eyes of the powerless

Clean path to his kingdom

Beckoning in the mist

(The grand conjuration)

Tell my why

Love subsides

In the light

Of your wishes

Say my name

Ease the pain

Clear the smoke

In my head

"When hell awakes" from Savage Circus:

Out in the woods, unspoken horror of

Ancient malignance awakes

Leaving its hideout to please the hunger

Following the winds of the north

Cursed is the woodlands and cursed is thy land

The edge of the forest is marking

The line to the ground of red

So violent and vicious, so cruel and malign

Once there was peace and silence around

A valley of green under skies so blue

All is lost, children are raised

With tales of fear and tales about you

I need a miracle

[bridge:]

Crimson eyes are burning

In the darkness of the woods

I must bring deliverance

Oh if I only could

[Chorus:]

When hell awakes

In the gardens inside of my heart

Unholy embrace

It’s killing the innocence

Demons are rising, they’re haunting my soul

The devil is laughing, he’s seeking control

There’s a poisoned thorn

In the gardens inside my heart

When hell awakes

This was the land of the golden seas

Freedom and light surrounding me

Now I’m aware that nothing is forever

A darkening mist infected our soil

Ages has past since I drew my first breath

The future was turning in the absence of death

Evil is rising, I saw its rebirth

Paradise, now it’s hell on earth

What is the key to relock this door?

What is the cause, there must be more

Stories told in the ancient fore

Oh, it has happened before

[bridge]

[Chorus]

I have been standing the test of time

Here I am now, this life is mine

Throughout the woods into the darkest night

I’m on the way to end this mortal fight

I have the clue, the certain sign

The moon is full and the stars align

Bearer of sorrow, sealer of fate

I’m taking it back, it’s never too late

[bridge]

[Chorus]

Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus

(Probably better known for it's covers - Johnny Cash did one that's excellent, Marilyn Manson did one which deserves to be burnt in the same pit his cover of Tainted Love does...)

Your own, personal, Jesus

someone to hear your prayers,

someone who cares

Your own, personal, Jesus

someone to hear your prayers,

someone who's there

Feeling unknown

and you're all alone,

flesh and bone,

by the telephone,

lift up the receiver,

I'll make you a believer

Take second best,

put me to the test,

things on your chest,

you need to confess,

I will deliver,

you know I'm a forgiver

Reach out and touch faith

Reach out and touch faith

Your own, personal, Jesus

someone to hear your prayers,

someone who cares

Your own, personal, Jesus

someone to hear your prayers,

someone to care

Feeling unknown

and you're all alone,

flesh and bone,

by the telephone,

lift up the receiver,

I'll make you a believer

I will deliver,

you know I'm a forgiver

Reach out and touch faith

(repeat)

It might not have the rage or decay that some do, but it sums up a lot of Devils perfectly - Max from the intro for example.

It's that slight Smug edge to it. A lot of Cash's stuff has that vuage sense of longing, which works too, I think...

Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nails "Hurt" would be the song that I would use as the theme song for Lucifer in a Demon Chronicle. Imagine Demon's Lucifer if he got to talk to God one more time. He just might say this:

hurt myself today

To see if I still feel

I focus on the pain

The only thing that's real

The needle tears a hole

The old familiar sting

Try to kill it all away

But I remember everything

[Chorus:]

What have I become

My sweetest friend

Everyone I know goes away

In the end

And you could have it all

My empire of dirt

I will let you down

I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns

Upon my liar's chair

Full of broken thoughts

I cannot repair

Beneath the stains of time

The feelings disappear

You are someone else

I am still right here

[Chorus:]

What have I become

My sweetest friend

Everyone I know goes away

In the end

And you could have it all

My empire of dirt

I will let you down

I will make you hurt

If I could start again

A million miles away

I would keep myself

I would find a way

Fields Of The Nephilim would be my first choice too.

Anathema would be another, particularly this from Alternative 4:

Feel

I've feeling, I won't be coming down from this,

I was searching through the heavens and somehow I slipped!

I feel, I'm seeing so clear

Trying to forget tomorrow and all that's happened

This is not the way, the way I was meant to be

I feel, I'm seeing so clear

I thought I was never going to die

I feel, I'm seeing so clear

We need more time

Slipping away, I think I'm gonna crack

Misplaced trust, loyalty stabbed in the gut

I feel, I'm seeing so clear

I thought I was never coming back

I've been down for awhile,

And now I'm coming back...

Death - Sacred Serenity

Wherever we go, whatever we do

Your shadow is not far behind our steps

And our breath

Protecting and watching all...

Observing spirits on the wall

What are they telling you?

Following all instincts that are pure

Oblivious to time that may be the cure

Scared is the gift that they have without knowing

Serenity is knowing it's safe from destruction of time

Maybe we could take a step back

And discover what leads us to attack

Time that is short - Distance unknown

For them, each day life has just begun

Observing spirits on the wall

What are they telling you?

Following all instincts that are pure

Oblivious to time that may be the cure

Scared is the gift that they have without knowing

Serenity is knowing it's safe from destruction of time

Here is a definate Defilers track (i.e. my track): The Undertaker by Puscifer.

Thank You for making me

feel like I'm guilty

Making it easy to murder your sweet memory

You were way out of line,

went and turned it all around on me again

How can I not smell your lie

Through the smoke and arrogance.

But now I know

So you will not get away with it again

I'm distant in those hollow eyes

For I have reached my end. So...

Thank You for making me

feel like I'm guilty

Making it easy to murder your sweet memory

Before I go tell me

Were you ever who you claimed yourself to be

Either way i must say goodbye.

You're dead to me. So I...

Thank You for making me

feel like I'm guilty

Making it easy to murder your sweet memory

I'm severing the heart then I'm leaving your corpse behind

Not dead but soon to be, though.

I won't be the one who killed you

I'll just leave that up to you

I'm not gonna be here to revive you

I'm not gonna be here to revive you

I'm not gonna be here to revive you

I'm gonna be the one to say...

I told you so (X8)

I told you

Severing the heart then I'm leaving you corpse behind

Not dead but soon to be and

I'm gonna be the one to say I told you so

For those of you who don't know where this song comes from, re-watch Underworld: Evolution. It is the song that it being played in the background when Selene goes to visit Tannis in the old monestry, when he is with his little Vampire bits. Damn thats a horny scene!!!

I can't believe nobody has posted this one yet. I guess it is too easy.

Please allow me to introduce myself

Im a man of wealth and taste

Ive been around for a long, long year

Stole many a mans soul and faith

And I was round when jesus christ

Had his moment of doubt and pain

Made damn sure that pilate

Washed his hands and sealed his fate

Pleased to meet you

Hope you guess my name

But whats puzzling you

Is the nature of my game

I stuck around st. petersburg

When I saw it was a time for a change

Killed the czar and his ministers

Anastasia screamed in vain

I rode a tank

Held a generals rank

When the blitzkrieg raged

And the bodies stank

Pleased to meet you

Hope you guess my name, oh yeah

Ah, whats puzzling you

Is the nature of my game, oh yeah

I watched with glee

While your kings and queens

Fought for ten decades

For the gods they made

I shouted out,

Who killed the kennedys?

When after all

It was you and me

Let me please introduce myself

Im a man of wealth and taste

And I laid traps for troubadours

Who get killed before they reached bombay

Pleased to meet you

Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah

But whats puzzling you

Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby

Pleased to meet you

Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah

But whats confusing you

Is just the nature of my game

Just as every cop is a criminal

And all the sinners saints

As heads is tails

Just call me Lucifer

cause Im in need of some restraint

So if you meet me

Have some courtesy

Have some sympathy, and some taste

Use all your well-learned politesse

Or Ill lay your soul to waste, um yeah

Pleased to meet you

Hope you guessed my name, um yeah

But whats puzzling you

Is the nature of my game,

Epica - The Obsessive Devotion

Don’t you ever blind me

Don’t be a foolish thief

-Am I?

Don’t you ever bring yourself to grief

Don’t you ever blind me

Don’t ever trick my mind

-Did I?

Don’t you think that you can lie to me

-Did I lie?

Fortuna exprimitur artibus falsis

Et mendacem memorem esse oportet

If he is your moon, I will be your earth

To which you can return, safely or injured.

I feel only misery for myself when I

Look through the eyes of someone else

Don’t you choke and bind me

Don’t be a bleeding heart

-Am I?

Fold then walk away or play your cards

-Let us play!

Fortuna exprimitur artibus falsis

Et mendacem memorem esse oportet

If he is your moon, I will be your earth

To which you can return, safely or injured.

I feel only misery for myself when I

Look through the eyes of someone else

I can't even recognize the path which has to be

Taken to enter infinity.

-Don't you dare me

I dare you

-You don't care about me

I care about you

-Don’t you touch me

-Liar

Fortuna exprimitur artibus falsis

Et mendacem memorem esse oportet

Adoratio permanebit

Quotiens me eges, adero

I prefer to be unhappy with you,

rather than being depressed without you.

I belong to someone, I'm dedicated to

Nothing lasts forever but you, you do…

I prefer to be a lair just like you

To fulfill my deepest desires

I belong to someone, I'm dedicated to

But all that I desire is you

One thoughtless moment passes in slow motion

As I lie down, I realise that…

All I wish is to get rid of this Obsessive Devotion

Venia ad vitam aeternam

Non mibi, non tibi, sed nobis

Hit me as you can

Beat me as you wish

Liar

Fortuna mutual coniuncti

Per tota saecula futura

I have raised myself for you

But now I regret

Venia ad vitam aeternam

This is the end

VNV Nation - Descent

All I've got to say about the lyrics to this song (and the song in general) is "Ye gods. Is he sitting there with the books or something"

All of god's children would have cause

To think the devil now walks this realm

A place dis-possessed of any sanity

Edification of a scene from hell

Man-made prophecies serve to vindicate

All sides who claim themselves

Worthy servants obedient to the same god

A god that commands them not to kill

These faithful in lines that number thousands

Bring perdition throughout the land

As though the Angel of Death

Himself had been unleashed

To exact a punishment on this world

Across this cursed place

Rage the fires

Where the innocent are burned

On a thousand funeral pires

In anguish parted from this world

Does the need for the belief

In the devil serve to palliate

Self to forgive us our sins

In the abandonment of reason

and our delivery into hell

Limitless of rays of mankind

In its virulent capacities

Ironic it may seem

Through this a chance exists to see

In us also lies the capacity to transcend
