Of Origins Unearthed (2018) – Leviathan

01. Back to Zero (Intro)

02. Beyond the Stars

Verse 1:
These days I marked my time, just engross the thoughts
I've been wondering why I flog a dead horse
And all I want to do, is get a bantam clue
To crack it ・What's wrong with this world

Verse 2:
Behind glass walls of entertainment,
The shallow truth and inornate ecstasy,
We try to fill our hollow shells with
Is it never enough, to have what you've got?

Chorus:
Can we still breathe without air-conditioning?
Can we still see with our eyes blinded by TV?
Can we still hear when someone is screaming for help?
Beyond the stars is where we live, but still imprisoned by ourselves

Verse 3:
Comfort yourself in artificial distance
Be deceived that you never cared
Act like it's none of your business, may I ask,
What the fuck are you doing right now?

03. Proclamation of Death

Verse 1:
There we meet again,
At the end of days
On this final judgement of man,
It's you who called
I am your mirror,
Reflecting what you've done

Chorus 1:
A thousand years were given
A thousand years you've had
I didn't come to help you,
I came to judge your faults
I came to judge your faults!

Verse 2:
All the progress made,
All the wars you fought,
Did they take you any further?
Now your world is burning,
With your cities ruined,
You are facing annihilation!

Bridge:
For I conclude that mankind is the error
The time has come to end your reign of terror
Say your prayers, veil in despair,
For judgement's been called

Verse 3:
While your charge was to save this planet,
All you did is let it all decay
And for all the failures,
The weight of consequences,
Is now yours to bear

Chorus 2:
A thousand years of failures
A thousand years of decay
I didn't come to preach forgiveness
I came to preach your doom
I proclaim your death!

04. Keep Going

Verse 1:
Life is a beautiful thing, but when you grow
older, you find that the sins we do to each
other dissolve the ties that once bound us; when
family and friends that you had keep fading away

Verse 2:
Sometimes the weight of the world is too hard to
bear, and your way's hard to find, 'cause others may
doubt you and your every move; when dreams fade
and triumph tastes bitter, fear not ・for all heroes must die

Chorus:
(oh oh oh oh)
Just be true to yourself, no matter what they say
(oh oh oh oh)
Never look back, keep going your way
(oh oh oh oh)
Just be true to yourself, no matter what they say
(oh oh oh oh)
Never look back, keep going your way

Bridge:
Break "thou shalt not," they don't do as they preach
They don't wear the shoes that you walk in
And even if you hang by the skin of your teeth
Believe in yourself ・just keep going

Chorus:
(oh oh oh oh)
Just be true to yourself, no matter what they say
(oh oh oh oh)
Never look back, keep going your way
(oh oh oh oh)
Just be true to yourself, no matter what they say
(oh oh oh oh)
Never look back, keep going your way

05. The Eye of the Storm (Instrumental)

06. Lake of Blood

Verse 1:
When tanks roll out and the aces fly
They march in line and raise their flags up high
Ancient chants praise country and their lord
With pride at heart and freedom as reward

Verse 2:
Anxiety and despair in their eyes
Their dreams haunted by their comrade's cries
The pale faces of their bodies drowned in red

Remember them as the bullet strikes through your head

Chorus:
Show no mercy
Feel no pain
Pull the trigger
Take your aim
Fight for glory
But die in vain
In a lake of blood, we are all the same

Verse 3:
Between the wreckage we hear a mother's cry

Mourning her children, that were sentenced to die
Bombs took their homes, mines ・their arms and legs
No freedom found, hatred all that's left

07. Sorrow

Verse 1:
When the shadow of death falls upon you,
And darkness devours your sight
When everything that you have gone through,
Washed away by the sands of time

Pre-Chorus:
Look at the scenery,
Fathom it's meant to be,
But in my heart is a place full of sorrow
Bask in absurdity
Drawn to apostasy
Turn off the lights ・I won't see no tomorrow

Chorus:
Turn off the light (the light)
I can't bear to see anything
Turn off the light (the light)
For my heart can see no tomorrow
Turn off the light (the light)
I can't bear to see anything
Turn off the light (the light)
For my heart can see no tomorrow

Verse 2:
When truth feels too heavy to sink in,
And daggers of ice pierce your chest
When the circle of life shows its bleak grin,
We reckon how trivial we are

Verse 3:
When someone has done their last journey,
When they have met their demise,
Sometimes their fire keeps burning,
In the ones left behind

08. Come Forth, Leviathan (Instrumental)

09. Whatever

Verse 1:
You keep staring at me like it's a sight to behold
Your head's full of all the bullshit that you've been told
You can't ever reach me, that's why you've got fear in thee
And you live in a world that is not meant to be

Verse 2
Every day I've got to fight, and it's me against the world
And nobody's on your side, so fuck what you heard
There are so many things that are against my core
It's the same every day, and I can't take it no more
No more!

Bridge:
Don't give me shit
I've both feet in reality
You stand in the way of the things I adore
You can't glare at me, tell me what you want
'Cause I keep on fighting, forevermore

Chorus:
And whatever else may be, bring it on to me
And whatever you will do, I'll be free
So I'm fighting for my future, and then finally
My future shall be free to me!
