I Command

We the people, we fear no what you say

You broke our back for many a year, we slaved

Time has come, I see a changing of the guard

Tried to rule our lands, take away our heart

 

Oh no here I go

My sword is razor sharp to take away your life

Oh no here I go

Time is right tonight to take away your laws

Which enforce us

 

You think your tyrant laws could hold us down

Tiny man, plastic crown

We hold the knowledge, the key, the heart

Judge not the fury of the common man

When he's ripped apart

 

Oh no here I go

You know my sword is razor sharp, yes it is

Oh no here I go

Time is right tonight to take away your laws

Which enforce us

 

No more will we hide

In the shadow of the light

Nor will we hide in the sand

Time is right tonight, can't you see its right?

Force, I command

 

We the people, we fear no what you say

You broke our back, but now youll hang until your dead

Time is here now, see your life as it falls

Tried to rule our lands, take away our heart

 

Oh no here I go

My sword is razor sharp to take away your life

Oh no here I go

Time is right tonight to take away your laws

Which enforce us

 

No more will we hide

In the shadow of the light

Nor will we hide in the sand

Time is right tonight, can't you see its right?

Force, I command

 

 

All Things Ash

Remember when you use to dance

I see you remember quite well

Remember this, remember it well

Your reign was nice, but you fell

 

Your stay at the top didn't last very long

You thought you knew the way

Watch very closely as gods given hands

Remove what has been

 

As it all fell

Then came you as well

Ash takes its place

You've lost the race

 

Don't take it away, the words you did say

As you crawl into the street

Someday you'll see just how low you would go

Now you struggle back to you feet

 

Laughing and crying so many trying

To get what they think they have earned

Listen to this, listen my friend

You've lost your turn

 

As it all fell

Then came you as well

Ash takes its place

You've lost the race

 

Now you see your not who you think

Wealth plays a game in your mind

Watch very closely as all things gold

Become ash

 

As it all fell

Then came you as well

Ash takes its place

You've lost the race

After The Fallout

I don't know why, as I look to the sky

Destruction, I mourn, will this lead me on?

 

How can our leaders leave us this way?

How come they point us to our grave?

  

You and all of your ways

I hope you see the day

The day the earth stands still

Or will you just want to kill

 

Oh can't you hear me calling out

After the fallout

 

There's nothing here to live for

You couldn't wait to start a war

We wait to feel the pain

We pray you won't come again

 

Oh can't you hear me calling out

After the fallout

 

 

The Warrior

Now you see the light you've never seen before

Pale shades of gray, that was all you saw

Then came the warrior, standing true and tall

With a wish, salvation

Nothing more

 

He's the one

Who came to free our souls

From the night, from the dark

He's the one

Who new we’d all survive

He's the one; oh he's the one

 

Now see this man who fought for all of us

Lying there, in the dust

He fought to free the chains that kept us bound

Now he’s lying there, on the ground

 

He's the one

Who came to free our souls

From the night, from the dark

He's the one
Who new we’d all survive

He's the one; oh he's the one

See the warrior cry, as he begins to die

See his life just slipping away

He's fought for years to hide the tears

But it’s hard to hide the pain

 

Think it over again, you might understand

He's not here just to fight

Ill fated ways, made him betray

He's lost his sense of right



 Fade/Another Chance

Don't take my pride away from me

It's all I have, my claim to be

It's been a lifetime of wondrous dreams

Endless journeys, so it seems

 

All I need

Is another chance

Before my life

Fades away

 

My thoughts and conscience, shame and disgrace

Where lost forever when I found this place

I've lost my lifetime, I've lost my soul

I need direction, which way to go

 

All I need

Is another chance

Before my life

Fades away

 

 

Strike Against Time

From a distance I can read their faces

See traces floating in the air

I turn around, look to the ground and know

They didn't seem to care

 

I know I see

Oh believe me

In time you'll see nothing rhyme

That's the way it will be

 

Now and then I look to the end and know

I just walked from there

I turn around, look to the ground and know

They just don't seem to care

 

I know I see

Oh believe me

In time you'll see nothing rhyme

Thats the way it will be

 

 

Devils Reign

He stands alone, on his throne of fire

Gates of hell, open wide for us

 

On we march, towards our death we move

Across the Styx, life seems destined to die

 

Fast we move, lightning strikes, we die

Our swords and shields are no match for his kind

 

Standing tall, he finds reason to kill

Moves so swift, not a sound is heard

 

As we lie here, our souls condemned to hell

Blackened hearts, is the price we pay

 

 

Speed Demon

Been on the highway, searching for so long

Gotta get me some release

Like a Demon hunting, stalking in the night

You're all that I need

 

There's fire in my eyes, burning to my soul

I've got to break away

My time has come to pass, the night goes by so fast

Can't stand the light of day

 

Youre the one who lights up the night

Take me away

You're the one; You're the one

Come on, take me away


 

Songs From The Abyss
A full-on Metal CD I'm working on.
Most of the songs I wrote many years ago.
I was going through some of my old cassettes and lyric books
I had the lyrics and basic guitar parts, thats it.
Some of these songs are being recorded for the first time in over 15 years
As I finish the songs I will upload MP3s

All songs: Lawrence A. Magri
