Overkill - Keeper Lyrics

Keeper

When I feel the pressure rise
My heart beats through
The shadow of your hallow eyes, at any cost
When I steal into those eyes
Your sun beats through
To take me by complete surprise, and is all lost

And when I fear, what I hear
A voice cuts through the shadows
Like a razor knife, to pay the cost
To disappear, far to near
And cast a light that falls upon
My darkest night, but is all lost

Spill your sacred water
On your sacred ground
Chant your holy verse
Unbound, unbound
Sacrifice your daughter
Kill your fatted cow
Orchestrate the slaughter
It’s now, now

Keeper, blind to the godsend
Keeper, lives in your eyes
Keeper, strike as to offend
When all has gone away
Keeper, blind to the godsend
Keeper, lives in your skies
Keeper, strike and to defend
A keeper by your side

Spit your truth, upon the plate
That feeds the need
To justify without mistake
For god’s sake
Run your hope through my veins
That keeps us safe
And gives us faith to cleanse the pain
For our sake

Spill your sacred water
On your sacred ground
Chant your holy verse
Unbound, unbound
Sacrifice your daughter
Kill your fatted cow
Orchestrate your slaughter
It’s now, it’s now

Keeper, blind to the godsend
Keeper, lives in your eyes
Keeper, strike as to offend
When all has gone away
Keeper, blind to the godsend
Keeper, lives in your skies
Keeper, strike and to defend
A keeper by your side

Lock it up in liberty
Hide in sight for all to see
Called through night and purity
Kept in sight for you to be
Keeper, blind to the godsend
Keeper, lives in your eyes

Keeper, blind to the godsend
Keeper, lives in your eyes
Keeper, strike as to offend
When all has gone arye
Keeper, blind to the godsend
Keeper, lives in your skies
Keeper, strike and to defend
A keeper by your side
