about

This song was written around 2012 as well, and is one of my personal favorites. Originally the song featured Joe Ranzoni (formerly of Hellcarver) on drums, unfortunately I could not reconnect with him to have him reprise his performance for this album.

The song is as the title states, a confrontation between the character in Soul Bleed and a man come to kill him.

lyrics

(Verse 1)
[Read]
Through thought and time we'll find a place
Where a man can vanish without a trace
A lapse in physical space and time
Where the whole universe is defined

[Scott]
And now in darkness we congregate
The last traitors of a forgotten race
With no solid sense of time
Where the whole universe is defined

[Read]
Old hatreds will run deep
Beneath the ash of our history
Tearing down like a fallen star
Reveal the demon, that you are

[Scott]
If you dare to challenge me
I'll claim your soul, I'll set you free

[Read]
Though it hurts my mind to try
I will kill you for all mankind

[Read]
I've got hope on my side
[Scott]
I've got fury on my side

(Chorus)
[Read]
Take my soul, take my life
[Scott]
Feed my pride, I'll bleed your mind
[Read]
I will fight the fear inside
[Scott]
If you try, you'll eat my knife

(Verse 2)
[Scott]
We'll come through the curtains of your dreams
Fulfilling our last prophecy
Bring down the righteous and the damned
We hold your fate in our hands

[Read]
If you come in my lucid dreams
I'll fight you all, I'll set you free
I'll travel through both space and time
To where the universe is defined

[Scott]
Hide behind your puny walls
The ones I lead will hear my call
And we'll rise from your oppressive race
We'll kill you all without disgrace

[Read]
Lay down your arms and cast aside
This hate has taken so many lives

[Scott]
You'll never see me bow again
And blood will spill, I'll make amends

[Read]
I've got light on my side
[Scott]
I've got darkness on my side

(Chorus)
[Read]
Take my soul, take my life
[Scott]
Feel my pride, I'll damn the light
[Read]
I will fight the fear inside
[Scott]
If you try, I'll end your life

(Bridge)

[Read]
Soulless damned, I'll take your life
[Scott]
I'll claim your soul, I'll take what's mine

(Chorus)
[Read]
Take my soul, take my life
[Scott]
Feed my pride, I'll bleed your mind
[Read]
I will fight the fear inside
[Scott]
If you try, you'll be redefined
