Distant Past - Rise of the Fallen

Protagonist: Son of God
Antagonist: Fallen Angel
Contagonist: Mankind

1. MASTERS OF DUALITY

How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, Lucifer!
In the past, all the nations on earth bowed down before you, now you have been cast down.
- Isaiah 14:12

I am the light, I am the word, I am the incarnated soul of the lord
I came to represent heaven on earth, I dare you not to challenge me
For I am the holy descendant, part of the divine

I'm rebellion, I am wrath, I roam the earth, first one of all the angels
I fought for Him through eternity, until he threw me unto this world of humanity
I shall not be deposed, earth will always be my sovereignity

We will never find a way to exist together as one
We were both sent to earth to serve a higher goal
But one will remain, and one will return
One will hang, and one will burn
one will burn, you will burn

I am Him, he's my father, I’m here to save the masses, called the messiah

I am Thee, the fallen one, here to reign humanity
But will they still believe in me
When you come for deliverance, though you know that you will die for them

Men will never find a way, to all believe in the same
We were both sent to earth to save mankind
But humans see and humans do
Always divided by us two
by us two, by us two

You’re a fallen angel
You will fall and crumble

You will deceive mankind
And you will leave them blind

I am the saviour of man
Convince them while you can

Will we ever find a way to exist together as one
We were both sent to earth to serve a higher goal
One will remain, one will return
One will be crucified and one lets others burn
let others burn, you will burn

2. DIE AS ONE

The God of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so the light of the glory should not shine on them.
- 2 Corinthians 4:4

Out there on the barren lands, it’s survival of the fittest
The star that fell from the sky, forced us to kill or be killed

We’re all just mere mortals
Is this our right to choose
We were created as equals
And we die as one

Die as one

All the evil influence, lead us to be unmerciful
There’s no room for sentiment, only death will prevail

If there’ll ever be a judgement, innocence is what we claim
You made the circumstances, but won’t take the blame
We were thrown out of paradise, for true freedom is sin
But this is all your creation, the hell you put us in

We are just human beings
Won’t get out unstained
We’ll be judged by our actions
And we will die as one

We were doomed from the outset
Without soul, disowned
There’s no time to regret
‘Cause we all die alone

We die alone

3. END OF THE WORLD

So the Lord said: I will destroy all the people I created on the earth..., because I am sorry that I have made them.
- Genesis 6:7

Now it has to end
They've forged their own demise
There's evil in their hearts
Fable of a failed race

Don’t let them die, don’t let them vanish
These imperfect little creatures
They just need more patience

Look how they destroy
They take your name in vain
Lay it in my hands
They'll suffer endless pain

Isn’t there another solution, isn’t there another way
Don't you feel no sympathy
Can't leave me in dismay

and so it begins
Creation uncrowned
Cleansing the earth
Let them all drown

It’s the end of the World
When God turns away, decline and decay
In the end of the world

Now you take away their lives
Change their destiny
You, lord of all there is
Free to take relentlessly

Is this your final judgement, is this your final straw
There is always redemption
You can change the law

and so it will end
Swallowed by the flood
Cursing the earth
With water and blood

It’s the end of the World
When God turns away, decline and decay
In the end of the world

and so it will end
Creation uncrowned
Cursing the earth
Let them all drown

It’s the end of the World
When God turns away, decline and decay
In the end of the world

4. ARK OF THE SAVIOUR

And make the ark before our eyes and according to our revelation, and do not speak to me in respect of those who are unjust; surely they shall be drowned. Embark in it, in the name of Allah, be its sailing and its anchoring; most surely my Lord is forgiving, merciful.
- Sura 11 (Hud / Qu’ran)

Hiding on a bare dark mountain top
Following his heavenly command
To build the boat of 1000 years
To save the now fallen race of man

Tell me, was this your true intent
You didn't want them all to die
Who gave the order to this man
To let one of each survive

He's been waiting for a long time to fulfill his work
He's heard a divine voice say, build the ark
He thinks he is following God, but hasn't he left us all alone
He means to save all of his own kind
Did he obey a dark or a generous mind
He thinks he is following God, but hasn't he left us all alone
left us all alone

I will not accept to forsake all humanity
I will not stand and stare and be indifferent to this irony

But what can you do, up in heaven, when the Lord doesn't seem to care no more
The whole of life will be re-established under my own command

I will come to earth, I will bring the word

For what it is worth (not a damn)

He's been waiting for a long time to fulfill his work
He's heard a divine voice say, build the ark
He thinks he is following God, but hasn't he left us all alone
He means to save all of his own kind
Did he obey a dark or a generous mind
He thinks he is following God, but hasn't he left us all alone
left us all alone, all alone

5. SCRIPTURAL TRUTH

For the Scriptures tell us that bread won’t feed men’s souls; obedience to every word of God is what we need.
- Matthew 4:4

(CHORUS)
All you see, it belongs to me
You can have it now, if you worship me
All you see, was given to me
It can all be yours, bow down to me

For forthy days and nights I wander
Through these planes of burning sand
To test my strength, my purity
I will not subdue to human needs

You have the power, you have the might
Turn stone to bread, water to wine
It’s for your own good, no one will know
Show me your strength and do it now

CHORUS

I will not sin, no thought shall be wasted
I will not use my powers selfishly
I don’t live on bread alone
But on the word of the one true God

Let me show you the true meaning of the scripture
Throw yourself down from the pinnacle
You cannot fall, the angels will come to your aid
It’s a promise the word of God has made

CHORUS

I will overcome the burden set for me
Deny temptation of my archenemy
The sword of the spirit will defeat
Only the Lord makes me complete

Oh, don’t you feel the lust, it can all be yours
All the kingdoms and all the splendor
Bow down to me and I make you king of the world
I will give you riches and glory unheard

I will only serve one Lord
For your influence will not shatter me
I tried my best and leave you for now
But victory will be mine

CHORUS

6. REDEMPTION

Silent ye spake and breath'd immortal love to mortal men, above which only son, filial obedience: as a sacrifice.
- John Milton, Paradise Lost, Book III, 1667

So you found a way to allay humanity
Speak of your wisdom, but freedom ain't free

Only I can throughout satisfy all their needs
While you order them to obey and believe

You'll die for their sins

Do you think redemption will give them a better life
Their urge inside, still their only drive

I cannot harm man, but mislead them to sin
I can even rule from the pit you put me in

You'll die for their sins

It's shame that even you have to obey the eternal laws
He demands a sacrifice to cleanse the sins of all
But they're just mortal men
And you, you're God in flesh descent

I won't let them go
No, I won't leave them alone
They'll always believe in me
I am their saviour

Why do you think that they'll obey your command
They cannot resist, free will is at hand

This is how he made us all, free to choose
Offer them salvation, in the end they will refuse

You'll die for their sins

It's shame that even you have to obey the eternal laws
He demands a sacrifice to cleanse the sins of all
But they're just mortal men
And you, you're God in flesh descent

It's shame that even you have to obey the eternal laws
He demands a sacrifice to cleanse the sins of all
You're God in flesh descent
And it all, all must end

God in flesh descent

7. THE ROAD TO GOLGOTHA

Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing -Luke 23:34

Betrayed, beaten and scarred, as you carry your cross to your tomb
They spit in your face as you pass, staggering half dead through the mob

On a trail of tears
The road to Golgotha
Man blinded by his fears
While they're killing their idol

Is this the end of your reign
The road to Golgotha
How much pain can you sustain
Why don't you scream for mercy

Scream for mercy

Why don't you scream for mercy

You stood before the trial, knew your sentence is death
Yes, you are a king, but your kingdom's not the earth

Is this your legacy
The road to Golgotha
Decide your destiny
By the will of man

Is this your final path
Why don't unleash your wrath
Aren't you loosing your faith
While you're whipped and you're chained

Was it really all worthwhile
While you hang there left to die

Betrayed / Denied

Nailed to the cross
Suffering for endless hours
Blood and matter
Running from the crown of thorns

Why do you still turn the other cheek
Where is your power so called son of God

No one can save you now
So how can you promise them salvation

Father, please forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing
I will be back to save them, for they shall find the truth

8. HEROES DIE

What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.
- Pericles, 495 – 429 B.C.

You live your life like an outcast, other people just never saw
And they expect you to take the path, society's chosen for you

Sometimes you wish to get lost, be invisible, disappear
Then from afar you hear a voice, that makes you feel that you belong

Live your life the way that you want, but it’s hard to get it right
Now there’s someone you can follow, to guide you into the light

You stood in front with the other followers, to listen to his words
You get to meet all the believers, who found the truth, long before you did

Some follow him everywhere, some even know him first hand
You wish you could be just like them and thank him for the spirit you feel

It doesn’t matter, what the others do, you know what's inside of you
The passion lifts you up so high, you can touch the sky

And then they die
And you break down and cry
Because even heroes die
There's so much left undone
So much you would have done
There’s so much left undone
And then it's over, yes it's over
Because even heroes die
Heroes die

Why did my hero have to die
I just can't bear the pain
Why did my hero have to die
In my dreams he's always there

Your wisdom is immortal
Your legacy will live on

Why did my hero have to die
I feel so left alone
Why did my hero have to die
I can't seem to reach the sky no more

I cherish your memory
Are you watching over me

Farewell my saviour, the spirit remains
This planet of blue has you no more
Will we meet again when my time will come
But without you, how can I be strong

Bless me

9. THE ASCENSION

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in union with the Messiah.
-Romans 6:23

Ascending to heaven above, to be at my father's side
Giving you all there is to give, eternal life
Promising to save, those who believe
The others may stay and dwell on this earth

Didn't have the power to conquer the fear of death
Couldn't handle the pressure to resist the lures of sin
Wouldn't trust the spirit to overcome the oppression

From the deciever

Too many people fail to see
The ressurection is God's mercy
The son on the cross died for us
So we can be free

We work for all the evil
Everyday of our lives
Lying, cheating, stealing
No righteousness, just vice

The ascension: futile salvation of man

Didn't have the time to talk to God and pray on my kness
Wouldn't repent and turn away from the idols on the screen
Couldn't bring myself to obey just one of the 10 commandments

No mercy

He rose from the grave
To show us his power over death
The perpetual sacrife
How could we forget

Too many people fail to see
The ressurection is God's mercy
The son on the cross died for us
So we can be free

We spit on the holy book
Just care for our own good
Ignoring the message brought
That we have to obey to be saved
The ascension: futile salvation of man

10. BY THE LIGHT OF THE MORNING STAR

I, Yeshua, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches..., I am the bright morning star.
- Rev 22:16

What I prophecied is true
They chose me over you
You have died for their sins
Now let my reign begin

My wisdom will never cease
Man will be watched if they pray on their knees
They will be judged by their actions
Led astray by my distractions

Here we stand, here we stand, here we stand
Forever until the end of time
Guided by whom created all
The Rise and the Fall
In the light of the morning star

Here we reign, here we reign, here we reign
Kings of the World and all the living things
With the power of the lie
The power of the word
Bringer of light
Of the bright morning star

Yes, they’ll remember you
Yes, they will pray to you
Your body on the cross
A martyr for all of us

They will always heed the word
Of the Lord, my father
Method to the madness
Mankind is possessed

Don't you know, don't you know
Behold the second coming of the son
Salvation is the eternal way
They must obey
In the light of the morning star

Here they pray, here they pray
Triumph over death and the resurrection
World coming down on Judgment day
We will be there
With the light of the morning star

Free to choose which God to follow
How can there be more than one
I am the truth, i am the light
You just can't ignore free will
They will never know who really controls their fate

Have fatih in the word
You want to fool them all
Have faith in the Lord
You want to control them all
Have faith in the cross
You want to steal their souls

Have faith in the judgement
by the light of the morning star

There will be no warning after all

But the truth will find a way

On the word you can't rely

And all the life underneath the sun

Will be slaves of the son

The devil's pawns 'till

Kingdom come
