Track Name: Depravation
one of those days
my anger flaring up inside
I never reckoned I could be like that
I’m just a fraction
of what I used to be
you state the obvious
it’s not enough to save my day

inner visions
so alluring
I wait for vengeance
down in here

I TRY TO CALM MYSELF (ONCE AGAIN)
pin down the sorrow, crack the surface, take their empty lifes away
TRY TO CALM THOSE DEMONS IN MY HEAD (THEY’RE STILL ALIVE)
they’re still alive, they’ll stay, and they’ll never let you go

depravation
seems all so manifest
I can take your
complacency no more
“We’ll all be fine” – here comes another lie
I’m close to bursting
I feel I sold my soul

inner visions
so alluring
I wait for vengeance
down in here

I TRY TO CALM MYSELF (ONCE AGAIN)
pin down the sorrow, crack the surface, take their empty lifes away
TRY TO CALM THOSE DEMONS IN MY HEAD (THEY’RE STILL ALIVE)
they’re still alive, they’ll stay, and they’ll never let you go

resistance
stand fast
deliverance

I TRY TO CALM MYSELF (ONCE AGAIN)
pin down the sorrow, crack the surface, take their empty lifes away
TRY TO CALM THOSE DEMONS IN MY HEAD (THEY’RE STILL ALIVE)
they’re still alive, they’ll stay, and they’ll never let you go
Track Name: Monocracy
as soon as I command
no need to know my reasons
your life is in my hand

disobedience
will be avenged
this is where it ends
it's too late for a change
resistance is futile
it’s not worth a try
my punishment is brutal
you know that you would die

I AM THE LAW
YOU ARE MY TOOLS
YOU OWE ME YOUR SOULS
YOUR FEAR IS MY FUEL

DARKNESS is all you see
COLDNESS all you can feel
HOPELESS lost will to be
you will pray for death each night

I am in charge
of your pathetic life
dreams are all charred
and dreamers pay the price
do as I say
and no one will be harmed
no need to pray
no sense in getting armed

you’re all monitored
for the greater good
the freedom lie is torn
you better understood
you’re under my control
no matter what you try
bondage is your role
accept your place in life
Track Name: Punchfuck
you should be marvelled like a perfect sunrise
and that’s just what I’m up to do
you make me lose my grip
I’m falling into you
let’s fuck it all and feel alive
mistakes are made, hearts get broken
I want to be your one mistake

consider, you’ll feel me
imagine, we could do it now
consider, and be my faith
it so hard right now

ONE SILENT THOUGHT WHEN THE NIGHT IS SLOW
I REALIZE YOU’RE THE RIGHT THING TO DO

OH SO REPROBATE IS THE THOUGHT OF YOU
AND SO TASTY THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT
WHAT IF THIS IS AS GOOD AS IT’S GONNA GET?
WHAT IF WE DECIDED TO END UP IN BED TONIGHT?
YOU WOULD NEVER GROW OLD IN MY MIND

you could always be that beautiful
you would always fuck my mind
once again I hold my breath for you
you’re so fuckin’ beautiful

no one’s to tell me what I should die for
cause life will kill us anyway
don’t overthink, just feel
take me and rock my world
let’s fuck it all, wallow in joy
one moment of intensity
one night becomes eternity

go!
so fuckin’ beautiful
I’ll hurt you carefully
Track Name: Into Oblivion
walk
walk now

this is the hour, the point of no return
garbled trees and mutilated oceans
cold creeping in, no stars in the sky
for your greed has changed this world
trepidation all around
I face the cold, in the drizzling toxic rain
I feel the rays from a darkened sun
while dying mother nature screams in me

garbled trees, mutilated
mephitic air
devastation all around us
our future was buried in the past
you all will see when the sun’s going down

WALKING IN PERVERTED FIELDS
a land of dust and ashes
THE TOXIC SKY IS PRESAGING
A LIFE IN DARKNESS
I CAN HEAR THE MOANING TREES
while chainsaws sing their songs
MIGHTY FORESTS FALL FOR GREED
CHAINSAWS ARE SINGING THEIR SONGS

behind the glasses of your masks
you’ll be wondering why (wondering why)
what happened to this planet (to this planet)
where chimneys darken the sky
warning over warning, warning over warning
three times they will call
in the end there is only one thing certain
humanity will fall

the sky is crying tears of mud
a fatal horizon

death and destruction all around us
our future was buried in the past

we’re on our way from existence
into oblivion

a land of dust and ashes
a land of dust and
ashes
Track Name: Winter is Coming
enter this world we’ve created
be part of this nightmare
that’s buried in our heads

i never wanted to join
this viewless game of yours
no place for intrigues
as winter’s coming

I LIVED TOO FAST IN THE PAST
THERE’S A PLACE WARM WITH GRACE
I LEARNT TO FIGHT LONG AGO
OUT IN THE COLD

DON’T YOU FORGET WHAT WE HAD
LIGHT A FIRE, BURN THE PAST
FOR I’M ABOUT TO LOSE MY HEAD

this is beyond all my fears
and beyond my integrity
too many oaths that I swore

i don’t recognize myself
anymore
i used to be a man of peace
not a man of war

ALL THAT I TRIED OUT OF PLIGHT
SEEMS TO GO UP IN FLAMES
SEEMS A FAIL, JUST A FAIL (just a fail)

DON’T YOU FORGET WHAT WE HAD
LIGHT A FIRE, BURN THE PAST
FOR I’M ABOUT TO LOSE MY HEAD

my sun will set
my hour of death
comes when i lose my temper
lose my head

I fight myself to sleep
while all that I wanted
was give you some peace

LEST YOU FORGET WHAT WE HAD
LIGHT A FIRE, MAKE THIS WORLD
A LESS UNCORDIAL PLACE
DON’T YOU FORGET WHAT WE HAD
LIGHT A FIRE, BURN THE PAST
FOR I’M ABOUT TO LOSE MY HEAD

the night is dark, winter’s come
Track Name: As I Turn The Page
shutdown… the walls are closing in once more
pretending… a perfect life, a humble smile and perfect scores
tears of… resignation running down his cheeks
shutdown… of this life
of my life

separation
beyond salvation
alone
as days drift on and on

SHOW ME WHAT LIFE WAS LIKE
BACK THEN, IN BETTER TIMES
AS I TURN THE PAGE, DAYS DRIFT AWAY
LOSING MYSELF, I SAY FUCK THIS LIFE

drinking… countless nights to sedate a concussed mind
painting… my life black, a fragile compromise
fears of… deprivation, all compassion failed
and no one to blame but myself

embrace the pain
it means we’re still alive
embrace the pain
and take my side

SHOW ME WHAT LIFE WAS LIKE
BACK THEN, IN BETTER TIMES
AS I TURN THE PAGE, DAYS DRIFT AWAY
LOSING MYSELF, I SAY FUCK THIS LIFE

light is burning
deep inside
AS I TURN THE PAGE, DAYS DRIFT ON
LOSING MYSELF, I SAY FUCK THIS LIFE
Track Name: Silence Will Fall
don’t blink
not in these times
through crimson tides and silent stars,
the nebulas are tumbling

see those eyes?
they’re old eyes
remember me for we shall meet again
allons-y

RISE WITH ME, WATCH IT ALL
FALL APART, ON OUR WAY TO RUIN
THROUGH BROKEN WALLS AND EMPTY STREETS
WE TAKE A STEP ON OUR WAY TO RUIN

SILENCE WILL FALL
WHEN THE QUESTION IS ASKED
SILENCE WILL FALL
AND FINALLY, I WILL COME BACK TO LIFE
ten seconds late
while shadows grow
when the snow begins to fall
I’ll be a story in your head

hope grown dim
truth shall be told
one may tolerate a world of demons
for an angel’s sake

SILENCE WILL FALL
WHEN THE QUESTION IS ASKED
SILENCE WILL FALL
WE’RE ALL JUST STORIES IN THE END
Track Name: File
your LIFE is just a FILE
locked up in a vault
your decisions fit the lifestyle
that lifestyle you've been taught

but this car is not your own
this house is not your home
these chains that you’re bound in
you forged them on your own

but we'll regain, we'll regain, we'll regain
what we deserve
but we'll regain, we'll regain, we'll regain
this is our world

tear down their walls
break these chains
we will not fall
this world will be ours again
they fear our thoughts
they fear our words
together we're strong
their empire of lies will burst

generation affectation
come and rise
get up and fight!

you’re buying all this shit you don’t need
with money you don’t have
still trying to impress them
you can’t take it to your grave

your tablet
your fashion
everything bought on loan
shortchanged by the system
get a life of you own!
Track Name: White Lies
white lies

when the dawn breaks
will she remember anything?
and will everything fall into place?
are they close yet?
when wrath subsides, fears come to life
once i drop my mask, will you keep your smile?

all that anger
suspicion starts to fall on me
I’ll close all my senses down again
I trust in my instincts
take a trip into our past
when there was no thought I’d be chased to the end

deep in my mind
I can feel the shadows
please, close your eyes
they reflect the mask I wear

WHITE LIES
I’M NOT SLEEPING TONIGHT
WHITE LIES
IS THERE NO PLACE TO HIDE?

I will move on
forget the nights and start anew
but I cannot wash my past all away
fear’s returning
I know they’re coming, all for me
so is this the end of my everything?

deep in my mind…

WHITE LIES…
and how can I forget?

the pictures force me to
run, run, forget

WHITE LIES
I’M NOT SLEEPING TONIGHT
WHITE LIES
IS THERE NO PLACE TO HIDE
FROM MYSELF?
Track Name: Remember my Name
life was never easy nor fair
but there was no load that I couldn't bear
no one else could win this war
I am the one who knocks on your door

I became the danger
knocking on your door

when they predicted my death
was when I realized how to live
instead of fading I chose to fight
To give anything that I could give

this world will remember my name
a legend will remain
and nothing will ever be the same

life turned into “kill or be killed”
invincible but mortally ill
prophecies shall not be fulfilled
conquering fate with iron will

conquering fate
with iron will

when they predicted my death
was when I realized how to live
instead of fading I chose to fight
to give anything that I could give

this world will remember my name
a legend will remain
and nothing will ever be the same
remember my name

remember my name

you will remember my name
a legend will remain
and nothing will ever be the same
say my name!
