Track Name: Face of Hate
Throughout our history
One remains a mystery
After every blackened phase
we will always find a face

The face of hate, won’t die
The face of hate, will rule
The dictator of death
The death of dictators
The face of hate

The moment of truth
The moment of lies
The same illusion

Who could ever tell what words mean
Behind the dollar smile

There’s no way out
No way to turn to
The face of evil
The face of sorrow
The face of death

The face of hate, won’t die
The face of hate, will rule
Track Name: Shame
No life is what it’s supposed to be, pain and greed
We don’t know better, we’ve never seen
The only way to make someone feel is to crush a knee
And burn his family tree

See how our history repeats itself
You cry and point someone else
And avoid the hangman

One joke, one laughter, after a corner
Let this be a lesson, the only way to win

That’s how I see you
That’s how you suffocate the voices and choices
Means to an end
You’re the winner, the world is yours
I know how you see me
That’s why I say…

No life is what it’s supposed to be, pain and greed
We don’t know better, we’ve never seen
The only way to make someone feel is to crush a knee
And burn his family tree

One joke, one laughter, after a corner
Let this be a lesson, the only way to win

No life is

No life is what it’s supposed to be, pain and greed
We don’t know better, we’ve never seen
The only way to make someone feel is to crush a knee
And burn his family tree
Track Name: Fury
I hear screaming of the dead
We have a voice in our heads!
I don’t know why I feel the need to hate you and you
And I am furious!

I opened up a grave to the past
And all I saw was bones, skulls and fire
Deadly serpent’s black fire

Roses on the floor
Corpses dancing in black blood of the king of the rats
Shouting IA! IA!

Need to feel something else is inevitable
I am furious
I am furious
I fear nothing!

I decide my own side
Dragging my sickle through the gates
Slaughtering the keeper
And ending the everlasting, the warmongering, bloodshedding
Lie of lies

I feel the fire inside
We have nowhere to run!
I see four horsemen riding, killing you and you
And they are furious

I still see witches casting spells, eating children off their parents
Secret evil rites
And gatherings of black magic

Rising dark forces
Lords of chaos feast on black blood of the king of the rats
Shouting IA!

Fire

I opened up a grave to the past
And all I saw was bones, skulls and fire
Deadly serpent’s black fire

Need to feel something else is inevitable
I am furious
I am furious
I fear nothing!

I decide my own side
Dragging my sickle through the gates
Slaughtering the keeper
And ending the everlasting, the warmongering, bloodshedding
Lie of lies

Lie of lies!
Track Name: My Land Shall Burn
My land shall burn

Burn this land
My kind will die

Check the world through my eyes
You will see, the horrors
No morning sun shines on my face
Darkness
Check the world through my eyes
You will fall on your knees

Darkness, please fill me
Forever yours I will be

See nothing before you suffer, the horrors
Joy is no more, I feel sadness, I wish darkness...

...fills me
Dark oblivion
Darkness, fill me

Check the world through my eyes
You will see, the horrors
No morning sun shines on my face
Darkness
Check the world through my eyes
You will fall on your knees

Darkness, please fill me
Forever yours I will be

My land shall burn
Track Name: Headshot
Thunder war rising, forced to fight the foes I’ve never seen
Their enemies hold such powers we can never match or defeat
The ones I’ve never seen try to rip me apart
I gotta be faster

Head! Shot!
Thunder war rising
I am stranded, there’s no way out
Head! Shot!
I’m going down
No regrets, no compromise
By my hand, I lose this fight

Choose your side, mine is suicide
No other way to escape this day
You’ll face the horrors life offers
Torture in the past and the future to come
Now you hear the silence, now you see the darkness

Head! Shot!
Thunder war rising
I am stranded, there’s no way out
Head! Shot!
I’m going down
No regrets, no compromise
By my hand, I lose this fight

Iron king, no ironic thing
Fields of gold just growing old, but not for me
This is the end of all hope

Choose your side, mine is suicide
No other way to escape this day
Domination over men
The young, the innocent and no one cares
Now you hear the silence, now you see the darkness

Head! Shot!
Thunder war rising
I am stranded, there’s no way out
Head! Shot!
I’m going down
No regrets, no compromise
By my hand, I lose this fight
Head! Shot!
Head! Shot!

Headshot!
Track Name: Ending Beginning
This day I'm here, one day I'm not
Few days to live, nothing more to give
I no more feel the difference between sorrow and happiness

I will go to a place called Never-Was
I want it and I won’t use any force
All who I’ll leave back here will remember me no more

You, you’ll remember me no more

This day I'm here, one day I'm not
I refuse to pray, I suffer if I stay
On this side, on the outside
This day I'm here, one day I'm not
This day I'm here, one day I'm not…
…alive

I was lying on the floor
My body pouring down the wall
I was drowning in the blackest of the seas
Finally getting free
After this coming week
No one remembers me

That day I was there, but now I'm not
Now it's all black and I don't wanna come back
To the outside, to the false side
That day I was there, but now I'm not
That day I was there, but now I'm not…
…alive
Track Name: Light My Path
My loneliness has left me
Seeking solace from the dead
And through your own passage you shall meet with your true self
I’ll wash my life away in the waters of this river
Joining the grave of my forebearers

And they speak to me in an ancient tongue
A language without words
Known by all kinds
Like a lightning bolt struck through my spine
They reveal me their secrets
They're taking me with them

I don't know your name
But I feel you're present
Mother, reclaim me
When I return to where I've come from

And I shall call you Gaia

Through the darkest moment
All that I'll leave behind
A stranded empty shell
Bathing in the morning light
It would have been a beautiful day to be alive
Nevertheless, a good day to die

I don't know your name
But you guide my way
Father, light my path
As I step into the unknown
I have waited for this moment
For so very long
Father, I am afraid to go alone

I have waited for so long
Track Name: Wish for More
Quest for something more
Is an on-going fight
Seeking is war
But I know that sight

Look down, behind, under, over
You'll find it
Can't miss it
It's where you breath and suffocate

Down, behind, through the looking glass
I'll find my Loch Ness
Still, I know how things

Crash a wall, burn to ground, rust to dust
Burst in flames, get torn apart in pieces
Diseases finish the rest

Nest of needful things holds its breath forever
Nothing leaks to this world

I wish for more
Your mind goes numb
I seek for sure
But you know it's dead
Imagination
Not enough
You open the door
I show you the end

That thing too shallow to find interesting
Wish for more and nothing appears

You only see what your mind creates
Mind breaks in its prison cell
I live for something more
Wake me!

Go!

I wish for more
Your mind goes numb
I seek for sure
But you know it's dead
Imagination
Not enough
You open the door

I die!
Track Name: Dark and Cold
I am the voice of dark and cold
You are the man without the fire
Elements of a dying mind you live in, give in, cry in
We are one
I am not fading

You cannot say the words you feel
Suffocation, your word’s unreal
Cry for help and I watch you bleed
And show how dark your heart can be
Pressure grows, your world falls apart

Close our eyes
All we see
All we feel
Is another hopeless memory
The one we suffer
Is growing from anger, pain!
My blue eyes turn
To a darker shade of black

I am the one without a voice
Living inside a pitch black mass
Now you choke me to the edge
One day I’ll show you wrath

Now, the deepest arise
Forces us to act
Reminds why the smallest won’t do great deeds

Close our eyes
All we see
All we feel
Is another hopeless memory
The one we suffer
Is growing from anger, pain
Of a thousand dreams
And my blue eyes turn
To a darker shade of black
