The Sins of Others

Born the son of a ruthless man

Turned a shadow of his former self

Branded wrong by the feeding hand

Drank misfortune from the mother's breast

Heeded words that would seal his fate

Had his brain washed at an early stage

Swallowed his pride, his tears and hate

Stuck in a trap where nothing changed

I suppose it's written in stone

I suppose it's carried from birth

I suppose it  flows through your blood

Not through your fault


Bearing on you, the sins of others

Wear on your face the shame of fathers

Tied to a chain of wrath and anger

Carry the weight forever after


Sought refuge from the Devil's camp

Found asylum in the lion's den

Disillusioned with the ways of men

Stigmatised by the rest of them

So he moved apart to plan his revenge

Back to the place where misfortune began

Stained were his hands, but he felt safe

The anger left but the karma remained

I  suppose it's written in stone

I suppose it's carried from birth

I suppose it flows through your blood

Just through your flaws


Bearing on you, the sins of others

Wear on your face the shame of fathers

Tied to a chain of wrath and anger

Carry the weight forever after


Now I am my own father

While you lay your soul to waste





Insects

Insects, a hundred million insects!

Insects, a hundred million insects are crawling in your system through your veins
Feel them, appreciate their presence, there’s nothing like them gliding on your chest

Wash your hands all over cause they’ll soon be back again
Triggered by your self-denial, feeding on your nerves

I can see your faith and devotion

Instinct, what if you followed instinct and let the fuckers spawn and spawn again?
Nonsense, no doubt that would be nonsense, but they’ve already conquered all that’s left

Hiding gets you nowhere, that’s exactly why they’re there
Triggered by your self-denial, feeding on your nerves

I can see your faith and devotion

Shadows forming in your head
Insects crawling on your chest

Read between the lines, you know they’ll soon be back again
Haunt you till the day that you decide to face yourself

I can see your faith and devotion (to them
)

The Deranged
Hush dear, hush dear, hush dear
Did I hear you talk?
Hush dear, hush dear, hush dear
Did I hear you talk?
I seek my revenge
Hush dear, hush dear, hush dear
Let's put on our show
Hush dear, hush dear, hush dear
We've done this before
I seek my revenge

Yes, I'm just the man you fear
And I hold the knife, my dear
I'm the shadow that appears
And I'll slide the knife

Bondaged with wires - Now you're my prey
Quench my desire - Meet your disgrace
Playing with fire - Blood on your face
Caught in a circle - You're in my cage

Hush, dear, hush, dear, hush, dear
Tell me you want more
Hush, dear, hush, dear, hush, dear
Cold blade on your throat
I seek my revenge...

Yes, I'm just the man you fear
There's some blood that I must spill
I'm the shadow that appears
And I'll slide the knife

Bondaged with wires - Now you're my prey
Quench my desire - Meet your disgrace
Playing with fire - Blood on your face
Caught in a circle - You're in my cage

Slowly, your time has come

Bondaged with wires - Now you're my prey
Quench my desire - Meet your disgrace
Playing with fire - Blood on your face
Caught in a circle - You're in my cage

Final Eclipse

In cages we live, hostage of what they want us to be
In a tired retreat, nameless the feeling holding us here
And swallowed by years, we made ourselves this way

We’re rising to the final eclipse of our kind
Entangled in a lifeless machine, we suffer

On the edge of abyss, struggling to retain normality
Denial we feed, forced to forego our coveted dreams
And angered by years, violence becomes our way

We’re rising to the final eclipse of our kind
Entangled in a lifeless machine, we suffer

Lift me up just before I drawn, wake me up in another soul


Before The End

Killer of body and soul erased from within
Spit out all slime that corrodes, invades from beneath

Break this armour of phlegm and disease
Pierce through the hymen of language unclear
Rid your tongue of layers of guilt
Taste the sourness of a new-found age

Before the end, you'll find your peace
And feel it come like a shiver
Before the end, you'll clench your teeth
And breathe the sour breeze of freedom

Killer of body and soul escapes to the fringes of your sanity
Master its slithering tongue and slay all its sins
All its suffocating, poisonous, toxic sense of guilt
Putrefied, mystified carrier of disease
Rid your mind of all disbelief
Cleanse your senses, move beyond this stage

Before the end, you'll find your peace
And feel it come like a shiver
Before the end, you'll clench your teeth
And breathe the sour breeze of freedom

Losing you

Shake the world that feeds the worm

You could be anywhere
You could be anywhere at all

Not Any More Heavens

Leaders of humanity
Forgers of identities

Marching celebrates their blood
Crowning sentiments of war

Mourning - Not anymore!
Torturing - Not anymore!
Conquering - Not anymore!

To break the spell of hate

Not any more heavens
Not any more heavens to betray, to be served, to escape

Waving flags of multitudes
Numbing minds in poverty

Soldiers desperate for more
Raised them in the cult of war

Mourning - Not anymore!
Torturing - Not anymore!
Conquering - Not anymore!

To break the spell of hate

Not any more heavens
Not any more heavens to be praised, to be served, to escape

The gates are open
The spell is broken
The prince has fallen
The fortress is taken
The heads are rolling
The widows are mourning
The crowds are rising
The truth's unfolding

We prevail

Hierarchies

Hungry were the mobs on his final day

Eager for the feast to begin

Gathering to feed on the crumbs he left

Waiting to descend on him, like vultures

Hidden in his tower the king observed

Shaken by the bites of fear

Bitter in his mouth was the taste of death

When the blade was dropped on him

On the day that illiterates and slaves

Overturned hierarchies to end all their pain

Not for long...


Fire and flames, let the rage unfold

Open the gates, the divine shall fall


Soon it was announced that another man

Would rule a country based on fear

Promises of  rights and of liberties

Were buried under roars of greedy laughter

Echoed in the circles of new elites

Selfishly pursuing their needs

Plundering the wealth of the ones they failed

Fallen in the hands of

Plutocrats, technocrats, lawyers and speculators

Who built a new hierarchy to serve their shallow ways

Meant to stay...


Fire and flames, let the rage unfold

Open the gates, the divine shall fall


Hungry were the masses, but once again

They would gather to reverse

Orders that were sent to their detriment

History repeats itself

Legacy of hope, passed on from generations

Restless and worn, pursuing liberation


Fire and flames, let the rage unfold

Open the gates, the divine shall fall







Rise of the Last

Chains of faith lock these gates

Holding back the truth

Shackled fates keep us slaves

Rays of hope break through

A tide is surging to wash away our fears

As signs of promised lands appear beyond the sea

A sound of thunder will turn around insanity

And in our eyes, terrified, you will see a flame burn


The rise of the last

To summon our strengths

Reborn into chaos


Heroes fade

Time escapes

Born to serve their rules

We rise above the ground to  surge beyond the sea

We leave our promised lands to challenge our own destiny

Embarking on a quest to turn around their apathy

And in our eyes, terrified, you will see our flame burn


The rise of the last

To summon all strengths

Reborn into chaos


Drawing near, severing our ties past

Weathering the storms to reach our heavens

Drawing near to our bitter-sweet shores

We become the masters of our creation


Hurtled into nothing's space

We become its proof

Separated from our flesh

Back into a womb

Breathing in, breathing out

Deepening our roots

Guided by a shining light

We will be born anew
