Live In London lyrics - Testament

Testament - Live In London Lyrics
Testament was one of the first thrash metal bands to emerge from the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1980s. Originally formed as ‘Legacy’ in 1983 by founding members Eric Peterson (rhythm guitar), Derrick Ramirez (guitar) and Louie Clemente (drums), the line-up included vocalist Steve Souza and Greg Christian (bass). Ramirez was later replaced by wunderkind Alex Skolnick (lead guitar). Souza soon departed to join Exodus and suggested that the towering Chuck Billy take over as frontman(and was later run over by a bus). The band became known as ‘Testament’ 3 years later, while recording their debut album in Ithaca, New York. “The Legacy” was a brutal intro in 1987, putting Testament at the forefront of th... more...

1. "The Preacher" lyrics


In days of old
When the books were untold
Speak of a world crushed by sin.
'The people will mourn of a war to be born'
Nobody would listen to him.
Think back in time
When the future you find
Is so faint that it's too hard to see.
Don't disavow his word
For the truth must be heard
Cause the preacher tells visions he sees.

In 1906
Like the future predicts
The city will crumble to the bay
Then what's in store
When the worlds go to war?
Peace will have come another day
Then came the one In the year of '41
Warfare would light up the sky
He beckoned the call Of the future for all
Blinded by what's in his eyes In days of old

When the books were untold
Speak of a world crushed by sin.
'The people will mourn of a war to be born'
Nobody would listen to him.
Think back in time
When the future you find
Is so faint that it's too hard to see.
Don't disavow his word
For the truth must be heard
Cause the preacher tells visions he sees.

Listen to these words I preach
Catastrophic lessons they shall teach
Listen to these words I preach
Catastrophic lessons they shall teach


 
2. "The New Order" lyrics


Takers of humanity, elders paranoid
The time is now
Give up this world you once destroyed
Society versus the underground
Their battles fought and lost
The time has come
To rule the world at any cost

For the past it's too late
Cause the world can't control fate
Shadows cast loud and clear
Tell the world the new order's here

Cities turn to battlefields
A deadly spell is cast
Corpses falling one by one
Until the last
The preacher speaks of prophecy
So many years before
No one escapes their punishment
The gods of war

For the past it's too late
Cause the world can't control fate
Shadows cast loud and clear
Tell the world the new order's here

Death is like an empty space
Fell no thoughts of fear
The future cries
As mother nature sheds a tear
The world becomes a prisoner
A victim of its crime
The human race is now a race
Against time

For the past it's too late
Cause the world can't control fate
Shadows cast loud and clear
Tell the world the new order's here


 
3. "The Haunting" lyrics


Hear the screams,screams of fright
Shrieks of terror through the night
Souls of old band to hold
The meeting for the haunting night

Headless ghosts fill the halls
Shadow plays of grief and pain
Phantom speaks his final note
Tenants of the castle slain
Black cats will appear
As the witching hour nears
Lost souls will all be told
For a haunting we will go

See their dreams come to life
Under pressure holding tight
Feel the cold grabbing hold
To feed you to the haunting night

Evil witch black as pitch
Starts a fire with a flinch
Burning fire rising higher
Making music like a choir

Stay away from the shining light
Can't seem to find the answer there
Bring back the terror in the night
That we all share tonight

Hear the screams,screams of fright
Shrieks of terror through the night
Souls of old band to hold
The meeting for the haunting night

Headless ghosts fill the halls
Shadow plays of grief and pain
Phantom speaks his final note
Tenants of the castle slain
Black cats will appear
As the witching hour nears
Lost souls will all be told
For a haunting we will go


 
4. "Electric Crown" lyrics


Here we go
The people show
Victims of tomorrow
The way it goes
It never shows
Emptiness or sorrow
There is nothing left inside
Nothing left to cry for
So I justify my crimes
Things I must die for

So alone
Away it goes
The life that you have wasted
You never know
Where is might go
The sweet success you've tasted
Tasted by a bitter frown
Knowing I must die for
Can't confide, to all the lies
No one to inquire

As I wander, change of seasons
As I realize
That I'll soon be there

I'll let you know
The reapers show
Makes you beg or borrow
He comes to see
The tragedy
His fate he will not follow
Wearing your electric crown
The preacher starts to pray
Shiver as the lights go down
Heed these words I say

As I wander
Change of seasons
I can't ponder
I got my reasons
As I realize
I don't care
All I know is
That I'll soon be there

Now it's gone
The time has come
The people stand in silence
Another dawn
Has come and gone
His fate has been decided
There is no one left inside
A brain without a mind
Traces of a bitter man
Are all you will find

As I wander
Change of seasons
I can't ponder
I got my reasons
As I realize
I don't care
All I know is
That I'll soon be there
And I'll soon be there
And I'll soon be there
And I'll soon be there


 
5. "Sins Of Omission" lyrics


The day's vanished in the night, soon the children pray
Pray themselves alone, the hate build from their pride
You can't take away, can't take what they own
The eyes watching from the sky, guides them through the haze
Calling far away, the rain is black as black, black as night
Oh let them pray

False sense of pride, satisfies
There's no reason for suicide
Use your mind, and hope to find
Find the meaning of existence...

The cry's answers wonder why, why it's time to die
Time to die alone, cause I'm wasting too much time
Wandering down the line reason why I go my own

False sense of pride, satisfies
There's no reason for suicide
Use your mind, and hope to find
Find the meaning of existence...


 
6. "Souls Of Black" lyrics


Can't you see
That in the world we live in
Political lies
Are just corporate decisions
They'll take away
All the hopes, not their promises
They'll put an end to this
Land of the living

Look at the lost souls
They seem so black
Look at the lost souls
Souls of black

They got control
Of the heart of a nation
Their social tribes
Seem so graciously
As time goes by
'Cause time as you came see
Will slowly die for you and me

Look at the lost souls
They seem so black
Look at the lost souls
Souls of black

So put an end
To this idolization
Antagonizing so commonly
Open your eyes
'Cause the lie's there so plain to see
Life goes on
There's no guarantees

Look at the lost souls
They seem so black
Look at the lost souls
Souls of black

They're bleeding so black


 
7. "Into The Pit" lyrics


Deep in the pit and lying alone
Where death has reared itself a throne
We're all the good, the bad
The worst and the best
And where they land is their eternal rest
Foul plays of passion
At twilight's dim in joy of woe, of good and sin
Winds of storm and fates overcast
Darkly my presence Is now your past
Join the insanity
Or die as you fall
Into the pit!

The mass production
And the killing of all
Into the pit!

The future screams for help
Are fading away
Into the pit!
The world tomorrow
Will it die for today?
Into the pit!
So in the sad, silent watches of night
The lonely pathway envisions my sight
Echoes of laughter
And boundless cries
Son here I wander under infinite skies
Join the insanity
Or die as you fall
Into the pit!

The mass production
And the killing of all
Into the pit!
The future screams for help
Are fading awayInto the pit!
The world tomorrow
Will it die for today?
Into the pit!


 
8. "Trial By Fire" lyrics


Accuse you of a crime
Sentenced to endless time
The price you have to pay
Won't get away!
Sworn in by the stand
Your rights are gone
The system's banned

They think you are a liar
A trial by fire

Hey!
This is what the people say,
A new way
A trial by fire!

Locked in an empty cell
Your life becomes a living hell
The river of fire flows
Time only knows!
Trapped by flames of fury
Ordered unto by the jury
Death is their desire
Thrown in the fire!

Hey!
This is what the people say,
A new way
A trial by fire!

Quiver by the fiery light
Cringing as your soul ignites
The book of law's been thrown away
Starting today!
The system before the war is gone for now and evermore
There is no sentence higher
A trial by fire!

Hey!
This is what the people say,
A new way
A trial by fire!


 
9. "Practice What You Preach" lyrics


You think your life's so grand
You don't believe a word you say
Your feet aren't on the ground
You let your life just slip away
Just so uncertain of your body and your soul
The promises you make, your mind so blank
And then you lose control
Then you lose control

I never was the one, the one to say the things you say
Never seem to wonder what you say
You think you've got your life completely in control
You've got a lot to learn, the bridge you burned
It's gonna take its toll
Pay the burnt bridge toll

So practice what you preach
Practice what you preach
Preach
Practice what you preach
Practice what you preach
Preach
Practice what you preach

You think your life's so grand
You don't believe a word you say
Your feet aren't on the ground
You let your life just slip away
Just so uncertain of your body and your soul
The promises you make, your mind so blank
And then you lose control
Then you lose control

Pay the burnt bridge toll
Then you lose control
Pay the burnt bridge toll
So practice what you preach

So practice what you preach
Preach
Practice what you preach
Practice what you preach
Preach


 
10. "Let Go Of My World" lyrics


Listen now to my sordid tale
My words they speak to you
They testify
You can't deny
You see it's on so true
I dwell in thoughts
Of the universe
What's immorality ?
it's said to be
The lies they breed
The pages start to bleed
How can this be ?

Let go of my world
Let it go ...

Touch my soul
With subliminal sin
Deceptions they induce
Ingest the lies
Dissect the mind
You can't control the youth
Enslave the free
With conformity
Oppression takes its toll
Hey little man
Who are you
To try to take control
Of my soul ...

Let go of my world
Let me go ...

Bleed me dry
Read between the lies
Filter out the truth
Pick at my brain
Brand me insane
I know what I must do
take my life into my own hands
My sins I will atone
It I don't cry
I will reside
Inside mental home
Home sweet home ...

Let go of my world
Let it go ...


 
11. "The Legacy" lyrics


We're gonna take you back
Through the pages of the past
Just another lonely boy

I could laugh and play
And live in any other way
Then the devil took my soul

The fortune and the fame
I knew I was not the same
And I know I'd never return

Looking at the sky
I knew I would never die
And forever shining through

Wish the sky would say
That blue would turn to grey
And I know I'd be there

Like was like a fantasy
Taken by reality
Does anyone remember me
You once knew me

Flashes of the day
I knew I was here to stay
But no one stays the same

Turn the pages back in time
Through the chapters in my mind
Life's too short to leave behind
It's too late

Like was like a fantasy
Taken by reality
Does anyone remember me
You once knew me

Flashes of the day
I knew I was here to stay
But no one
Knows my name


 
12. "Over The Wall" lyrics


I've been a prisoner
Trapped in by fear
Ordered for the rest of my life
Condemned in a jail cell
Ain't seen life in years
Escape is the only way out

Restart my life
Or self destruction
To climb this wall
Of dark construction
Holding the quest for freedom
That beckons me

My sanity is all but gone
My patience is growing very weak
I need to get a hold of myself
I stare at the wall
For the right time has come
Escape must occur on this night

Restart my life
Or self destruction
To climb this wall
Of dark construction
Holding the quest for freedom
That beckons me

Stand in my way
And I'll run you straight through
There's no one to stop me now
For I'm on the loose
And I'm ready to start
Torture and hell an this town

Over the wall

The search will not stop
And hounds will not rest
Till I am back in my cell
For if I am caught,I'll try it again
Over the wall I will go,I will go

Restart my life
Or self destruction
To climb this wall
Of dark construction
Holding the quest for freedom
That beckons me


 
13. "Raging Waters" lyrics


Our ship sailed on through the
Violent burning sea
Not knowing of the danger
Waiting in store for me
We wound up all in mayhem
The vessel tossed and turned
The compass that had led us
We watched it slowly burn
We'll never see our homeland
We know it all right then
That fate was on the second hand
Of borrowed time again
For that evil pathed our way

The men were being thrown
From left and right they feel
The water was as hot as Satan's
Forge from hell
The questions that arose like
Where the hell are we
I had a good idea we're in the
Devils sea : the triangle !

See what's become of your
Life left to live
No hope from this land of trust
Hells winds scream sacrilege
Death from above
The great white closes in
The corpses afloat all shattered in rage
No hope for our piece of mind
Satans vessels come closer and closer
He holds the seas fate in his hand

'Violence terror'
Raging waters
Dying has scare us nowhere to go
Darkness prevails no one to save us
Every one man for himself

The red gem of Hades is shining
Too hot
Satan's power becomes strong
His armies have killed so many
Before us
A sacrifice must be done
The door of the chosen
Has opened for us what sanctuary
Will we see
See him panic crying in lust
Screaming he'll get me

'Violence terror'
Raging waters
Dying has scare us nowhere to go
Darkness prevails no one to save us
Every one man for himself

Our ship sailed on through the
Violent burning sea
Not knowing of the danger
Waiting in store for me
We wound up all in mayhem
The vessel tossed and turned
The compass that had led us
We watched it slowly burn
We'll never see our homeland
We know it all right then
That fate was on the second hand
Of borrowed time again
For that evil pathed our way


 
14. "Disciples Of The Watch" lyrics


Cast to the fire
Banned by the light
Worship and listen to me

Condemned in his mind in his evil place
Your fate is all that you'll see I am the one
To show you the path
Salvation is in the fields
Listen up children and follow me
Or I'll let you pay the price
Of malachi!
Disciples of the watch
Obey!
Or I'll burn you to that cross!

Holding the mass
The demon is cast
To resurrect your soul
Calling to him is like an evil sin
A prophet is what they're told
Taking the land under command
Killing friend or foeFeel the might of his evil wrath

Desecrate your soul!
Disciples of the watch
Obey!
Or I'll burn you to that cross!

Cast to the fire
Banned by the light
Worship and listen to me
Condemned in his mind in his evil place
Your fate is all that you'll see I am the one
To show you the path
Salvation is in the fields
Listen up children and follow me
Or I'll let you pay the price
Of malachi!
Disciples of the watchObey!
Or I'll burn you to that cross!
