Building A Ruin lyrics - Skyclad

Skyclad - Building A Ruin lyrics
Skyclad is a British heavy metal band with strong folk influences in their music. They were formed by former Sabbat vocalist Martin Walkyier, and Satan / Blind Fury / Pariah guitarist Steve Ramsey in 1990 to represent the “ultimate pagan metal band”. From the start, they have incorporated a diverse range of influences from British folk music to German thrash metal which has fed their constantly evolving sound. They are widely considered the inventors of folk metal. The lineup remained stable for the recording of 2000’s Folk√©mon, but founding member Walkyier left the band in 2001, citing various reasons, such as financial difficulties or the bands unwillingness to tour in South America owing to security concer... more...

Building A Ruin

[time: 03:55]
[Lyrics: Martin Walkyier]
[Music: Steve Ramsey]

My life is a sentence that carries no pardon,
I can't put you out of my misery now,
So stunned by beauty of this madhouse garden -
I've taken my chances (then lost them somehow).

This body's a temple - a shoddy construction,
I'm digging my grave - while boring the well,
I'm paving a path to my own self destruction,
I won't be content 'til I see me in Hell.

No I won't be content 'til I see me in Hell.

I've looked back on my time - the names and the faces,
A child long ago that I nearly forgot,
And felt like someone who'd just stepped on the place
where the last stair should have been - (then found it was not).

Life's just a process of delamination,
Stripping your hopes - dissecting them gently.
I've opened my heart - and to my consternation
when I peered inside it was small, dark and empty.

[Chorus]
My friends turn to me - wonder what I am doing,
drinking and smoking like somebody died.
I said 'Leave me alone I'm just building a ruin,
The spirits are sunken - so the wreckage must rise.'

I'm building a ruin - I ruin a building,
My bridges are burned out - my tunnels are filled in.

It's all a game I believe - the longer you play it the harder it gets.
The most I can hope to achieve now's my breakfast,
a priest with a blindfold and last cigarette...

My friends turn to me - wonder what I am doing,
drinking and smoking like somebody died.
I said 'Leave me alone I'm just building a ruin,
The spirits are sunken - so the wreckage must rise.'

My friends turn to me - wonder what I am doing,
drinking and smoking like somebody died.
I said 'Leave me alone I'm just building a ruin,
The spirits are sunken - so the wreckage must rise.'

I won't be content 'til I see me in Hell.
