Ancient Mariner
Just wait till you hear “Listmaker”, it’ll be fuckin lit.

You tell me I can rank the songs
You tell that I can give them scores
You tell me I can make these rankings here for evermore
You tell me I can rank the songs
You tell that I can give them scores
You tell me I can make these lists...

And I know of the pain when you don't agree with me
And I dream of the day when these sets will be reality
And these lists in our minds, all our dirtiest fantasies
Will be heard... and those songs played liveee...

? :D

You tell me I can rank the songs
You tell that I can give them scores
You tell me I can make these rankings here for evermore
You tell me I can rank the songs
You tell that I can give them scores
You tell me I can make these lists...

And I know of the pain when you don't agree with me
And I dream of the day when these sets will be reality
And these lists in our minds, all our dirtiest fantasies
Will be heard... and those songs played liveee...

Not even close.

As you scream into the web of silence...
Well. I've been busy.

Diesel - The Book Of Shadows

So every now and then I like to go all-out and come up with lyrics to songs that could work together to form an entire album, and this is one of those occasions. I also had the opportunity to pull in some songs I'd written before now that also fit into the concept. Furthermore, I've got vocal demos for each track... all 17 of them. Enjoy, or don't. It's kinda depressing.

1. The Book Of Shadows
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1B8NjBzQ4sCU0eZRoTiUIACCg8dm_uSsj/view?usp=sharing
What is a shadow?
It is a thing of emptiness
Hollow
That depicts no life within its form.

A darkened night wakes my miserable existence
A shadow cast upon me
My eyes are sealed, I live in the past tense
And is there anywhere I'd rather be?

Don't keep thinking about my stupid prose
You're opening my book of shadows

Can you feel me? Can you feel me?
Tearing out the holes in my head until the dawn
Are you real? Are you real?
Shadows come but shadows are gone

Welcome home to an accident of reincarnation
This is the place I keep myself a-chained
Don't interrupt my system of isolation
When I want to I can make myself maimed

Don't you even think of what I called my woes
I wrote them down in my book of shadows

Can you feel me? Can you feel me?
Tearing out the holes in my head until the dawn
Are you real? Are you real?
Shadows come but shadows are gone

A perfect existence for me
Just another fish in the sea
Does it mean a thing at the end of the day?
Let the flood rain down on me
Let it be what it can be
I don't have much more that I can say!

Don't you listen to me and my death throes
Just throw away my book of shadows

Can you feel me? Can you feel me?
Tearing out the holes in my head until the dawn
Are you real? Are you real?
Shadows come but shadows are gone

As we walk into the night, we will never see the light

2. Zodiac
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1dO5Oo5fcZCj8nCsBuSlvIHpTKocQMmkV
2. ZODIAC
Living at large, law enforcement turned on
To a new kind of freak
As the body count is rising
People dying as we speak

As they're scrambling to find the answers
I am here behind my brain
You can run but you can't hide
You know it's all in vain

And you will never catch me

I run from law and hunt the sinless
I consider it a kind of thrill
I send my codes in to the papers
I give the people quite a chill

As my name is left unknown
I sign with the Zodiac
As the news spreads like wildfire
You'll never know when I'll attack

And you will never catch me

I lie in wait for my prey
People I don't know at all
The law is mad in pursuit
As for me, I'm having a ball
Here I am, out all alone
The street is my natural habitat
You could see me every day
And still not know where I'm at

As the tide is slowly turning
I am the man at large
You won't even suspect a thing
Until you're part of my charge

And you will never catch me!

Hello 1928
Thought you had come to late
But no matter, we'll get by somehow
Coolidge is in the White House
And Hoover's coming up behind him
Oh what can we say?
We can live another day...

4. Flaming Crosses
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1bXdkM6X5LQm2YcBtVi3vXuFdYWUjWynl
As the night is black
Preparing to attack
Roaming through the street
Silent hearts beat
See the lights go up
Partake in the cup
In this day of this year
Who do you fear?

Flaming crosses!

Underneath the bridge
Can't you see the witch?
Heating up the town
It's all going down
There's no holding back
Light the zodiac
Cruelty and fear
The black mass is here

Flaming crosses!

Sacrificial rites
In these endless nights
They won't go away
You've turned to prey
Exorcise your hell
To the witches' spell
There is no one safe
Bow your heads and pray

Flaming crosses!

5. Nightmares
https://drive.google.com/open?id=11_ylBECA-2zAnj2C0we6fsyFCpv2Inpt
I see a vision
Falling from the sky
A silver-winged angel
On her way to die
I hear no voices
I hear no cries
I wake in a sweat
With bloodshot burning eyes

Oooh, and still the night keeps calling
Oooh, and I can feel myself falling

Nightmares consuming me
Nightmares won't set me free

No sign of trouble
It's just another day
300 people
Departing away
I can give no warning
I can't play a part
I am not guilty
So stop my beating heart

Oooh, could it be that I'm dreaming?
Oooh, I'm screaming

Nightmares consuming me
Nightmares won't set me free

As they fall to the ground
Can't you hear the sound?

A day like no other
It will live on
And maybe to heaven
Is where they have gone
I couldn't help it
I couldn't bear
The thought of them dying
From out of mid-air

Oooh, the rope gets tighter
Oooh, the sun is brighter

Nightmares consuming me
Nightmares won't set me free

6. A Matter Of Life And Death
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1D3rZHUn__2LG3WB_RZhKea68RV49F_XE
Lying low in a trench filled with mud
Cut out here where a field once was
Bodies are piling in everwhere
Corpses remain where people once stood

Half a million are dead or dying
Half a million condemned here to die
Half a million shed blood on this ground
Half a million souls won't return

Once I heard a tale of redemption
Once I believed we were sent in for good
Once I believed that we were salvation
Once I was a man still alive

Three nights the guns kept firing
Three nights the shells hit our heads
Three nights the noise ripped the valley
Three nights the land filled with dead

I am a lonely forgotten soldier
I am far, far from my life
Mother, don't shed a tear for me now
But I will not be coming back home...

7. Original Sin
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1EAbd8edxQLUORpkwp0_4tbYqVi-G_0MJ
Tell me father, where are your children?
Out in the fields sowing the seeds
Tell me father, where are your children?
Tearing apart man and machine
Tell me mother, where is your son?
Out on his own rotting away
Tell me sister, where is your boy?
Left him to die on his accident day

Where are your sons? Where are your children?
Dying one by one through each new day
How many lives? How many tears shed
Before the world amends its ways?

Tell me father, where is your baby?
Threw him over the side of a cliff
Tell me brothers, where are your sisters?
They must fight if they want to live
I thought I'd seen many a thing
And I thought I knew it all
Tell me father, where are your children?
Lost them a long long time ago

Where are your sons? Where are your children?
Dying one by one through each new day
How many lives? How many tears shed
Before the world amends its ways?
I have tried, tried to survive
But you know you just can't win
Where are your sons? Where are your children?
They're dying alone in original sin

Tell me father, where are your children?
Out in the fields sowing the seeds
Tell me father, where are your children
Tearing apart man and machine

Where are your sons? Where are your children?
Dying one by one through each new day
How many lives? How many tears shed
Before the world amends its ways?
I have tried, tried to survive
But you know you just can't win
Where are your sons? Where are your children?
They're dying alone in original sin

Oh in original sin
Oh in original sin
Oh in original sin
Oh in original sin

8. Black
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1UAkdUDVxtoQqK_W77Xw6wuI1sUmi5XRz
Oooooh
Black is the sun
I am undone
Kill me today
I'm going away

Oh, and maybe when you've gone
I can close my eyes and drift away
Oh, and maybe when you've gone
I can close my eyes and drift away

Oooooh
Black is the sun
I am undone
The thoughts of man
Are thoughts of the damned

Oh, won't you let me go
I can't wait to watch what comes next
Oh, won't you let me go
I can't look and see at what should be

Oooooh
Black is the sun
I am undone
The Lord let us stray
And I don't know how to pray

Ohhhh
Black is the sun
I am undone
Kill me today
I'm going away

9. The Crucible
https://drive.google.com/open?id=12GEKxXf0TxhHPQPGsLZHmH6XctGhlc69
The crucible of man
The sin twast ripped in stone
Whilst flesh lay burnt and bleeding
The hollow truth begun
The eyes of Ra lie open
And Veritas speaks in lies
While pain was forged in furnaces
Of the ancient’s holy grails

Burning along the shorelines
Cast down upon the rocks
The sirens beckon yonder
To destroy the star-strucks
A filament of wisdom
Punctured in seven spots
I have no mortal compass
For it is riddled with my rot

A forge of burning hate
The fiery abyss below
My hands behold my fate
On the path that I shall go
The right is left beside me
The truth is oft not plain
Begone ye vile beggar
Gnashing at his chain

Inferno waits for many
While Satan’s in his lair
Holding his hands a-plenty
For all those who’d had a care
And crippled, broken, forgotten mess
The archangel blasts his horn
And down to Hell we fall away
Forever and ever amen

For as we live and as we breathe
All life burns as one
Impaled bird upon the ground
The stake right through its chest
And demonic temples raised at night
To silence the tomb of Jesus Christ
Holds me down on the altar’s wings
And cast me now into the fires

A flaming chariot, a chirruping choir
And all hear the hales above
Wouldst wash these cursed hands clean
For the murder’s out of love
And all these wretched, puking souls
Shaking still through the fire
Lead me past the wicker man
Onwards to the funeral pyre

And oh! The sounds, the longing cry
The soul departs without a sigh
Into the yonder blackened wood
Underneath the solemn hood
But can I turn a cursed ear
Away from each piece of shrouded shrub
And will I wake to see the light
Or is my time now up above?

All this, too, shall come to pass
The vehicle of slaughter tramples the ground
Beating harder through the veins
Of those who lived to seek the truth
For though I try to comprehend
I shall not dare to speak or cry
For the Crucible of man was forged
In desire, guilt, and a wish to die.

10. Voices
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WpLcjVJUE9N8W7-T8rklfRCGUG82viad
I hear voices every night
In my head, in my head
In the depths of my fright
They call out, they call out

I hear voices every night
In my head, in my head
They're turning off the light
Take our hands, take our hands

I hear voices every night
I hear voices every night
I hear voices every night
I hear voices every night

I hear voices every night
Understand, understand
That mine is not the sight
That rules my head, rules my head

I can't think with them around
I can't think, I can't think
I hear voices in my head
Tomorrow I'll wake up dead

I hear voices every night
I hear voices every night
I hear voices every
I hear voices
I hear

11. Dead
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1I4p28c7UTjGwlxitaXgW9pgEDRokcwA5
I must be cleansed
I'm living through a lens
That sees what is 3D as 2D
My mind is confined
So I am consigned
To oblivion, that is where I'll be

While you were busy dying
I was living in a cardboard box
What I labeled "trust" has turned to rust
And there is no way to break these locks

This is unreal, I cannot feel
It's dangerous living in my head
I cannot hope, I cannot cope
I cannot wait 'til I am dead

Losing control
Falling through a hole
That leads me to another side of life
I hope you wake up here
But I can sense the fear
And suddenly the third person takes my knife

While I am busy lying
He is taking away my thoughts
Soon my own hand becomes my foe
And I must let it do as it ought

This is unreal, I cannot feel
It's dangerous living in my head
I cannot hope, I cannot cope
I cannot wait 'til I am dead
All the oxygen that traps me in
Turns my whole world into red
One look at life, one look at strife
I cannot wait 'til I am dead

Somehow I don't believe that I believed
Somehow I don't believe that I believed
Somehow I don't believe that I believed
And even now it's still hard to perceive

I am all alone in this place that I call home
I am all alone in this place that I call home

While you were busy dying
I was living in a cardboard box
What I labeled "trust" has turned to rust
And there is no way to break these locks

This is unreal, I cannot feel
It's dangerous living in my head
I cannot hope, I cannot cope
I cannot wait 'til I am dead
All the oxygen that traps me in
Turns my whole world into red
One look at life, one look at strife
I cannot wait 'til I am dead

Would you wait for me?
Won't you wait for me?

12. In The Blink Of An Eye
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1_7cahcfOZ7V0l91EJJjSeeAZ6PiZ2zNR
Can you hear the sounds?
Can you feel the memories?
What can happen in a day?
Feels like child's play

In the blink of an eye
The tables will all turn
The darkness creeps again
The madness comes, amen!

Can you hear the sound
Of bullets... echo through the hall?
Can you hear the screams
Of terror... coming from us all?

The deadliest nightmare
Becomes real!

Listen for the sign
The execution nears
Fighting back the tears
Shed them away

We create the pain
We reign down on you
This is not a game
This is real life!

As you were in the cradle
You will be again!

Life is one big game
Of hide-and-go-seek
Between death and me
The rock comes down

There is no justice here
Only pain and fear
What will they say
When they hear the news?

You are lost now forever
You are cursed to die
You won't have your happy ever after
You will see the bullets fly!

The deadliest game...
Between death and man!

I kill for myself, I kill for the world
I kill myself as I kill the world!

Things will happen in an instant
In the blink of an eye!

13. Control
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pvsJqEp6RHPcw-VD_NDhDscGH77Zea_g
My heart is beating to a tuneless drum
I can't keep silent, can't keep mum
This plastic tin I wrapped round my head
I've torn off my skin, it lies where it shed

And I am feeling so cold
I was bought and then sold

All I want is control
All I need to feel whole
Just to seal up my soul
All I want is control

My brain is pounding like that of a bell
My numbed existence like being frozen in Hell
Take out the camera, set it on fire
I'm cast away in the funeral pyre

And I'm ready to go
Just thought you wanted to know

All I want is control
All I need to feel whole
Just to seal up my soul
All I want is control

Gotta get a grip
Gotta get a grip
Gotta get a grip
Gotta gotta gotta
Gotta get a grip
Gotta get a grip
Gotta get a grip
Gotta gotta

And I am feeling so cold
Just thought you wanted to know

All I want is control
All I need to feel whole
Just to seal up my soul
All I want is control

All I want is control
All I need to feel whole
I'm feeling like a droll
All I want is control

14. Inside The Abyss
https://drive.google.com/open?id=14eB9Vr-x4pODPnEj0v_ipJjNSP4eaeKB
The soul is crying out in pain
We've seen the actions, we know the name
The spread of rot through the core
It shan't stop, nevermore
Souls were crying out in pain
Taking from the eternal plain
An afterlife is all and nothing more
And yet they try to seal the score

Did you ever think about the consequence?
The only die cast left at their expense
From immortal wisdom to dying refrain
The path, the journey, it's all come back again

Open the door, can you feel the wild winds blow?
Sailing the shore of where you used to go
Inside the abyss the fires are burning still
And the human heart is ripe for the kill

Leviathan lets it rip
A fatal blow on a sinking ship
I look about and all I see
No hand of god guiding me
The execution fields of grain
The endless fight and the endless pain
Did you know the exit light
Is burning still, is burning bright

He who fights with monsters should see to it
That he does not become one, consigned to fit
And if you stare long into the abyss
It will stare back, a deathly kiss

Open the door, can you feel the wild winds blow?
Sailing the shore of where you used to go
Inside the abyss the fires are burning still
And the human heart is ripe for the kill

"The solar winds of hell are blowing and I'm
Lost without cause
My left side is plunged with the dagger and
There shall be no pause
What I believed and what I dreamed, it's all
Gone rotting away
And now my left is drifting about and I won't
See a new day."

What makes a man do what he does?
Can any of us know or find out what was?
Is there any answer to the mystery?
Is God above controlling it all or Hellfire misery?

Open the door, can you feel the wild winds blow?
Sailing the shore of where you used to go
Inside the abyss the fires are burning still
And the human heart is ripe for the kill

Inside the abyss the fires are burning still
And the human heart is ripe for the kill
Look but don't touch, it spreads like disease
And no one knows what someone else sees

Sailing along the shore where they left the spoils and the kills
And inside the abyss the fires are burning still...

15. Falling

I'm falling...
I'm falling...
Nowhere left to go
I have torn away my pride
Nothing left to say
Nowhere left to hide

I'm falling...
I'm falling...
I can't see the things
That others can
I cannot be a part
Of man's great plan

I'm falling...
I'm falling...
I'm falling...
I'm falling...

I fall.

16. The Empty House
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1mDglZcSEBMpyxnzrmWjjJtZSUeu5UO3K
This earthly void has won
And come with it the souls of a hundred men
Who passed these hallowed halls
And then lay and died before my very eyes
The empty chair beside me
Where once stood a respected navigator
Through the seas of life he stands
A ghost before my very eyes

Stands the ghost
In the empty room
Which rests within this empty house

My time will come, my time will come
Will come and I will follow suit
My time will come, my time will come
Will come and I will heed the call

Through the gardens wild
The fairies appear to beckon me on
As I trace the path we trod
On summer days when I was very young
And so eternity remains
And we will pass on to new days
Forever and ever a day
When once again I'll see your face

Once more I'll see
The face
The face that I would wish to see

My time will come, my time will come
Will come and I will follow suit
My time will come, my time will come
Will come and I will heed the call

And all the ghosts live on and on
They cannot fall away
Leading me along the path
The path I walk from day to day
And I know, and I know
We won't return again
And I know, and I know
That this is where it has to end

This is where it has to end

My time will come, my time will come
Will come and I will follow suit
My time will come, my time will come
Will come and I will heed the call
My time will come, my time will come
Will come and I will follow suit
My time will come, my time will come
Will come and I will heed the call

In these hallowed halls
Now remains the shell of an empty house...

17. Redemption
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1BnFNIzfKuya8LuWKNjGlNFf0w4hDGegx
The rain comes down all around me
It falls on my hair, it falls on my feet
And I lie in a river, a puddle of my own tears
How many have I cried before? Let me count the years...
Let it wash over me, let it do what it will
I have nothing left, no more time to kill
I come to the crossroads, I come to stand and wait
To give up my life right now or to heed the call of fate

Redeem me
Redeem me
Redeem me
Redeem me

If God is in the Heavens, why can this happen here?
The names are blurred in time obscured, and we've enscribed them with our fears
The past is dust behind me, the future remains to be seen
Can I live forever? Can I come clean?

Redeem me
Redeem me
Redeem me
Redeem me

Redemption is not a word one should use lightly
It means a blessed thing to the corruption of this sickness
But I am lost forever, I can never see
The light that shines for others will never shine for me

Redeem me
Redeem me
Redeem me
Redeem me

Redeem me
Redeem me
Redeem me
Redeem me

And if I can feel redemption
Then I can close my book of shadows....

Well that was melodramatic as fuck. Also god I sound awful on some of these. Oh well. You can see what you think and I hope you get something out of it. If anyone needs song explanations then I can do that shit too.
