Track Name: Journey Towards Ruin
Dealing with the coldness
Caught in eternal dusk
Tomorrow’s but a dream
Of a hopeless, forgotten child

Bleeding from her stale heart
She is leaving a trail of sin

Countless hours age the skin
She loses track of time, feels tired and falls asleep

Craving for her blessing, for a kiss that could heal their wounds
Fallen from grace and wiped from the face of the world
Within walls where no human being should live
See all those tiny crippled souls how
They twitch to every noise in ecstasy
This is insane
All those little hearts, all this pain
So deprived of any love
Malformed and laced with mental scars
Left for dead
Waiting room
Afterlife, oblivion – just leave this place of doom
House of shame
No one deserves
The coldest of hells upon earth

Life seems strange in our eyes
Sit and watch it die

Times are cold and vile, when you look at men
Never have I felt, such disgust against my tribe
How long can we stay?
Waiting for the purge
We’re the enemy
Scourging mother earth

Aimless
Cut-throat
Moloch
Worn out

Losing time
There’s nowhere to hide
As we desecrate the body on which we still depend
Something gets left behind along the journey towards ruin
Where the mind gets torn apart and is set to kill
There’s no dawning for a stillborn hope

Nothing left to lose, start again
Watch the hate rise again
Cleanse me now of this sin
Pull us down, seal our fate
Cleanse me now
Start again
Start again
Set to kill

Watch the hate rise again
Cleanse me now of this sin
Pull us down, seal our fate
Cleanse me now
Set to kill
Set to kill
Start again
Track Name: ...And By Dawn There Will Be Silence
Burning fields - alleged wars are on, unknown enemies roam our temples and our homes
Show me the tomb where the bloom of infamy was Born

Why does it feel like my eyes are shuddering?
The breathing’s shallow and my mind keeps screaming
Swallowing the pain that is spreading in front of me, the lies and the horrors, all the enforced fighting
I’m not myself, I am not deciding what to believe and the drums keep beating
Twist my neck with another distraction, I thirst for sorrow and the next big affliction

Empathy - I keep it locked inside

Thrilled and amazed by the vast loads of suffering, feed me with madness, it’s not affecting
Anything I know, for I dug this common grave to bury the last relicts of my guilty conscience
All days end as our hearts are shattered by the terror, the deceit and the constant bloodshed
Time is up, we are nothing to anyone and couldn’t even manage to prevent the secret war hawks from bringing death to us – boiling death

How comes no one ever dropped out?
How comes no one ever stopped them from injecting hate and fear?
Was it phlegm, was it sloth, was it all too distant?
These wars are fuelled by their acts of treason, again and again, it just keeps repeating
All days end as our hearts are shattered by the terror, the deceit and the constant bloodshed
This is hell, it will rise upon everyone - we couldn’t even manage to refuse to absorb their poison

Can’t you see? We’re already dead
I have watched them, legions crying over sheer piles of human flesh
And by dawn there will be silence
On this stone I come to rest
Cold as my blood, dead like our world

Night by night I’m haunted by this terrifying dream, although I know this is far from my reality
I woke up at first light to the sound of dying screams
Only to discover that death has caught up with me

Swallowing the pain that is spreading in front of me, the lies and the horrors, all the enforced fighting
All days end as our hearts are shattered by the terror, the deceit and the constant bloodshed
This is hell, it will rise upon everyone - we couldn’t even manage to prevent the secret war hawks
From bringing death
Track Name: The Peak Of Ease
Gaze at the burning stars above our home
Shining unconcerned of all this evil
Oh so calm you are watching from afar

Rest underneath the crown of the old oak
Standing firm despite of all this evil
While I’m longing for the sweet relief
Oh so calm you are humming from the hill

Here I am
Silently holding on
Why can’t this last endlessly?

Tell me, have you ever felt the urge to leave?

Cast away the grinding sorrow
Bless me with your calm
I embrace the warming sun,
The rain, that dyes the Stone

I fade away
I try to reach the peak of ease
Just once more
Fill me with emptiness and
Wake me once my mortal shell went dry

No desire weights on my heart
Fall into a dream, where death begins
Track Name: Worlds Collide
Roots – reaching so deep, affecting your every move
Roots – clenched to the spine, so nothing could ever expel them
Roots – rotten but firm, still spreading, still tainting what’s left of you

So, across the mountains he goes
On and on through the endless snow
Over rocks and past the land he knows
To a valley where the sun never Shows

There in the shadows they live
Truly happy with the way how it is
No one has the right to insist,
That they take a certain road and change their ways of living life
Least of all, a foreign man

Shadows part and light breaks through
As he casts the night away
By now, dreadful screeching fills the air
As their skin and flesh dissolves

Dead eyes are staring towards the bright sky
Mummified corpses are seaming the streets
Shine forth and cleanse them for this is the truth
If they can’t stand it, they have to shed blood

Give in
Let the purge purify your hearts
Tear the flesh from your bones
It’s flawed, steeped with sin
You shall be reborn

It was the most silent night
And only the stars were moving
Cooling dew settled on burnt flesh
Revealing a scenery of devastation
Blinded men, women and children alike
Lying next to the remains of former living bodies
Despair reached up to the heavens, as life bowed to the new law

I mould them in shape
Save them from sin
This is the way
This is the way of the righteous
It leads to salvation and bliss
