Betrayal – Escaping The Alter lyrics
Once upon a time there was a modern fair maiden
With a lifetime that looked ever bright
Last of pure and innocence was her guard
Yet she's open for attack
But wanting excitement she sought
To fulfill a desire deep inside
Now comes a decision for love and forgiveness
She said, "I don't need this foolish Christ!"
Instead it was time for a dive into life
To see how far she could go
Throwing away her freedom
She's looking for her chains
With a heart turned hard, back to a way
That could save her life
She ventures out in a curious fashion
With no caution or fear
To see what she could find
Huh? What kind of story is this?
Recruiter with crafty evil
Looking for their prey
There's an evening of high evil approaching
Thieves of lost and lonely children
Snatching lives for deadly gain
Feeling secure
In a crowd that gives you welcome
Friends who you know
But you don't know
She loves their mysterious ways and the presence
They bring to her life
But what she doesn't know
She'll prove curiosity killed the cat
"Sure I believe in Satan"
She exclaims with unstable thought
She goes through a door
And can't get back through
Now the test
The night came
When unspoken wickedness became reality
Before me they showed
Their truest evil and every form of lust, perversion and blasphemy
With hunger for more
I scream, "I can't get involved in this!"
They smiled, "you're already in
And soon you'll be the main event! "
The night has come, ceremonial alter
Waiting to be painted with the blood of the weak
Black robes surrounding the sacrifice
To be slain in white
Her body and blood brings them power
They hunger for the feast
I can't express the horrors
And sadness of this place
As hell itself is visiting
Through a five pointed star
I hear chanting sung by demons
And a choir of despairing void
As they prepare ceremonial alter
For their lord Satan
I'm running for my life
A despairing victim with no escape
Is caught and returned to the alter of death
My face to the black sky
Winds begin to stir
I lie a wait for my fateful death
There's a dark one now I can see
Waiting to take me down
I realize the life I could've had
With the God of love and power
But I turned and spat on his face
And sought a foolish desire
There's no winner in the game they play
The killer and the prey
Will burn in torment
Screaming and pleading I beg for life
Then I stop and only cry
They draw and encircle
About me for the time has finally come
Oh Lord, please God help me
The dagger's coming down!
