I am the sledgehammer messiah, waiting for sins to be born
and if you stop for a moment you can hear the machines are playing your song
there's nowhere to speak
I'm gaining you're falling into me
tell me you piece of shi, how does it feel
to be down here with Me?
Living, living, dreaming dreaming
drowning

Chorus:
Chainheart Machine
By cosmic retribution I've been sent
Cause I'll rise, You'll fall
Roll the dice!
My call

Tick tock, time to die
No use reaching as time goes by selfabsorbed egotistic....fuck!
I'm reigning your life!

Chorus:
Chainheart Machine
By cosmic retribution I've been sent
Cause I'll rise, You'll fall
Roll the dice!

Preaching for the Sun
they say there is a sun
so i'm preaching for the sun
they say there...is a sun

My body is chained to the ground where I walk
they stalk they hunt my every thought with
Execution, Evolution, Disillusion Pre-conclusion
Why is it me?

Chorus: Chainheart Machine
You're suffering will be legendary, even in hell!
Cause i'll rise, you'll fall
Roll the dice!

My call!(2x)

    General CommentI think this is something about a machine that takes lives and souls. I can't really put my finger on a deeper meaning. Either way, it's a great song.

    General CommentSounds to me like an industrialized Hell, whereas the song portrays Satan as taking the souls of sinners in order to rise from the abyss God has cast him into for eternity.

    General CommentMost of you will think but i'm crazy, but here's my take on it:

    The Narrator is the devil himself, and he says that he does not really need us, he will just screw us over.

    General CommentI get your point, especially because of the following lyrics:
    "Cause I'll rise, You'll fall
    Roll the dice!
    My call

    Tick tock, time to die
    No use reaching as time goes by selfabsorbed egotistic....fuck!
    I'm reigning your life!"
    and
    "You're suffering will be legendary, even in hell!"

    Nevertheless awesome song, one of my favorites from them =)

    General CommentThis song is about how the evil that people do will find them out:

    "I am the sledgehammer messiah, waiting for sins to be born
    and if you stop for a moment you can hear the machines are playing your song"
    ~indicating that there is always a tally on the evil actions we perform, and there is an entity out there that will call us on it


    "By cosmic retribution I've been sent
    Cause I'll rise, You'll fall
    Roll the dice!
    My call"
    ~Again, the chorus shows that the more we commit, the more likely we are to be called on the actions we perform


    Of course the song might not be about a specific entity at all but rather the way the universe responds to our existance

    General CommentThe rest of the album follows a concept, likely about a murderer of some kind. That's actually the last song in the album, notice how it fits perfectly after the post-Room 99 sounds. The guy died and devil came to claim his soul and such.
