RISE, like the Flood You Are..

Story Behind The Song

Inside an old faded paged book of Kansas Poets... lies the tale.

Song Description

In a world... long anticipating the arrival of its antichrist... One anthem will spread through the land, inspiring nothing, from no one... One biblical ballad that promises to have absolutely no notable effect at all amid the religious saturation of the times... It's the long awaited anthem for the coming Armageddon... A song destined for greatness but certain to disappoint along the way... The unholy must perish and the chosen must endure its lyrical savagery so that we can destroy our spiritual vitality before it's too late... or at least before it's too late to destroy it with purpose... One song must be sung throughout the lands... An anthem for all to sing during earth's final showdown between good and evil... One mediocre song will rise and unite mankind's saints and sinners against one enemy; the antichrist determined to bring about an apocalyptic end to all things mortal... all things good... and all things God... dun-dun-dah...

Lyrics

Rise Like the Flood You Are...

* (Song for the modern-American antichrist.)
----------------------------

* CHORUS:
Well fall like a falling star,
And stumble through a world gone dark,
Burn out like the dying spark,
And rise like the flood you are,
Rise like the flood you are.

Scatter like a rat in the street,
Neon's shine and city lights bleed,
Now there are car horns and sirens outside,
So lock the deadbolt fore you say goodnight,

Cautionary tales on the news,
People with nothing left to lose,
Stories that strike fear into your heart,
Swept away by the seas after they part,

CHORUS:
Well fall like a falling star,
And stumble through a world gone dark,
Burn out like the dying spark,
And rise like the flood you are,
Rise like the flood you are.

Washed up on the shores of remorse,
Sometimes prayers are mightier than the sword,
I nod as you walk into the room,
The living suffer but the dead are immune,

Call out to your brother in arms,
Convince him that there's no longer any harm,
And make him lay his sword at your feet,
When he bows down cut him off at the knees,

CHORUS:
Well fall like a falling star,
And stumble through a world gone dark,
Burn out like the dying spark,
And rise like the flood you are,
Rise like the flood you are.

You wage your war without a second thought,
You take pride in every bomb you drop,
You parade around the ruins of fools,
In the wake of a 1000 more funerals,

Thunders rolling over like a tide,
A vein of fire flashes 'cross mortal skies,
A sweeping rage blows over the land,
You stand proudly with blood on your hands,

CHORUS:
Well fall like a falling star,
And stumble through a world gone dark,
Burn out like the dying spark,
And rise like the flood you are,
Rise like the flood you are.

The innocent are pressed into the ground,
The earth is poisoned by the death raining down,
And you stand alone at the gates of hell,
You find comfort in the way burnt flesh smells,

How scarred does the scorched earth appear,
When the devil comes and the end is near,
And the naked are beginning to rot,
And silence fills the cathedral of God,

CHORUS:
Well fall like a falling star,
And stumble through a world gone dark,
Burn out like the dying spark,
And rise like the flood you are,
Rise like the flood you are.

Do you have no words for your scattering rats?
Sincerity and remorse are what you lack,
You starved the world while they fought for scraps,
You charred the sky until the sun went black,

You were sent by the devil himself,
You rose to power behind a mountain of wealth,
If your soul isn't damned for what you've already done,
It will be when the end finally comes,

CHORUS:
Well fall like a falling star,
And stumble through a world gone dark,
Burn out like the dying spark,
And rise like the flood you are,
Rise like the flood you are.

And an army of angels ride down from above,
And down strikes a bolt of eternal love,
And up goes a flash of fire to ash,
Your evil reign ends in a final flash,

And the gentle and the modest will rise again,
And inherit a world that's fit for them,
And the golden light of heaven begins to glow,
The faithful live forever beside the Holy Ghost,
CHORUS:
Well fall like a falling star,
And stumble through a world gone dark,
Burn out like the dying spark,
And rise like the flood you are,
Rise like the flood you are.

And the wickedness you spread finally fades away,
And the suffering you caused heals day by day,
And all the terror has been buried and the fears fade,
The wicked wither and evil bake,
And you will have a place among the devils slaves,

CHORUS:
Well fall like a falling star,
And stumble through a world gone dark,
Burn out like the dying spark,
And rise like the flood you are,
Rise like the flood you are.
