LYRICS
___________________________________________________________

Dark and Tortured Universe

Floating in the depths of a blackened space
Haunted spirits doomed to search - forever be enslaved
Curse the void as it slays the dying rays of light
One by one the stars all fall into a deathlike sleep

In emptiness and solitude the cold tears and claws
Ripping at the force of life - ripping it apart
A dark and tortured universe – dominion of no laws
The cycle´s now complete - take us back to the start

Nine dimensions of existence on the verge of collapse
Cannibalistic super-novas transmigrate into black holes
Storms of cosmic violence lay everything to waste
One by one the galaxies implode

In emptiness and solitude the cold tears and claws
Ripping at the force of life ripping it apart
A dark and tortured universe – dominion of no laws
The cycle´s now complete - take us back to the start

Behold the astral darkness
Morphing into nohtingness
Time has ceased to exist
Space has been forlorn

Behold the astral darkness
Morphing into nohtingness
Time has ceased to exist
Space has been forlorn
The true nature of existence now revealed
Nevermore to be concealed
No!

In emptiness and solitude the cold tears and claws
Ripping at the force of life - ripping it apart
A dark and tortured universe – dominion of no laws
The cycle´s now complete - take us back to the start

Presence Everlasting

These battles that we choose
When for ages we’ve been abused
Through centuries and decades
Imprisoned in our own rage
No more agony in here
The last outpost for you and me
Stronger and stronger
We march silently onward

I´m stuck in this void
Trapped in this forsaken maelstrom
How were we to know
The limits of temptation
Yearning for your touch
I can never get enough
Broken hearts of glass so fragile
The tidal waves of love

In the shadow of death
We try to endure
Living in the ruins
Of what we once knew
Reaching out
To you – one more time
Fatigued I drown
In your presence everlasting…

I hunt in the dead of night alone
Seeking further pleasures
With a darkened mind, a heart of stone
Aim to decrease this pressure
What once was lost, now re-possessed
Now forever part of me
Like vultures in the sky
Preying on those who bleed

In the shadow of death
We try to endure
Living in the ruins
Of what we once knew
Reaching out
To you – one more time
Fatigued I drown
In your presence everlasting…

A raven on my shoulder
Walk into an open grave
My spirit is getting colder
My soul a black hidden cave

Burning from within
Engulfed
In my own despair
Drowning

Dark twin on my shoulder
Crawl into a sombre womb
My spirit is growing older
My mind is bound to be my tomb

Burning from within
Engulfed
In my own despair
Drowning...drowning!
In your presence everlasting

The Flesh Falls from the Bone

If there was a bottom I wouldn´t hit it
Feeling of bone only amplifies the search for flesh
Falling endlessly as in a dream
Far beyond the obscene
Mirror oh mirror - your lie enslaves me
Complicates me
Vindicates me
Eradicates me
Penetrates me
Makes me lose my fucking self

All must go
None to spare
I will persevere
There is no end

Flesh falls from the bone
Amorphous being
Drawing blood from stone
This illusion of control
Flesh falls from the bone
Sick twisted creature
This is no way to live
It is a way to die

If there was a limit I would push it
Worshipping death to compensate lack of life
Mind is hollow in an empty shell
Cast under my own spell
Salvation through starvation
Glorification of degeneration
Morbid fascination with transformation
Slowmotion suicide

Haze of binge
Obsessive trance
Compulsive anarchy
Reign the kingdom of my mind

Flesh falls from the bone
Amorphous being
Drawing blood from stone
This illusion of control
Flesh falls from the bone
Sick twisted creature
This is no way to live
It is a way to die

Turn the inside to outside
Materialise the angst within
Slowmotion suicide
Too late once the heart gives in

No one must ever know
Just me and the blackened angels
My splintered shadow-self
My private demonology
Lead me down into the abyss

If there was a bottom I wouldn´t hit it
If there was a limit I would push it
If there was a bottom I wouldn´t see it
If there was a limit I would crush it

Binge and purge
Catharsis
I will persevere
There is no end

Flesh falls from the bone
Amorphous being
Drawing blood from stone
This illusion of control
Flesh falls from the bone
Sick twisted creature
This is no way to live
It is a way to die

All must disappear
Transparent invisible
Flesh-less ghost ideal
Slowmotion suicide

Days without End

I´m down but not out
My back against the ropes
Energy and sanity is draining from me
Patience backfires into punishment
Punishing the soul – suffocating
Crying out – gasping for air

Struggling forward in a race with no end
No rest in sight though the darkness descends
I´ve become a machine within a system of pain
No escape, no way out - I´m a slave

There´s no humanity
Just ruthless conformity
Increasing complexity

Living dead in these days that never end
Walking through the flames to transcend
Clenching my fist
Upon survival insist
Days without end
No mercy given
As the madness descends

Stand in line to get fucked in the head
Severe exhaustion - hanging on by a thread
Time is never on my side anyway
No need to worry - I can sleep in the grave

Trials and tribulation
Work ethic humiliation
Feudal structure confirmation

Living dead in these days that never end
Walking through the flames to transcend
Clenching my fist
Upon survival insist
Days without end
No mercy given
As the madness descends

Day after day fly before my eyes
All merge into a black grain
Arrested freedom of the inner child
Slave within a system of pain
___________________________________________________________

Fire at Will
With or against, no middleground - God on our side
Preemptive attack – need no reasons why
Cowboys with nukes, bulletproof - the media drools
Prime time debauchery
There´s no avoiding war
This is homeland security
There´s no avoiding war
It can only be postponed
To the advantage of others

A well-oiled machinery
Waging war is an industry
Keep spinning the economy
To reach Manifest Destiny
No noble cause in sight
Though winning the Noble Peace Prize might
Validate the reason to dominate
Geared by gain - beyond the insane

Fire at will
It has begun
Now kingdoms come undone
Fire at will
Overlords of violence
Raping all innocence

Marching onward into the black – no turning back
Politics of hysteria realized by -
False-flag deceptions
There´s no avoiding war
Sickening inbred corruption
There´s no avoiding war
Only a matter of time
And time is money

War-gods of air, land and sea
Genocide for democracy
Massmedial duplicity
Theatre of grotesquery
No noble cause in sight
Just madmen power-drunk with lies
Vindicate your treason
Geared by gain - destroy the humane

Fire at will
It has begun
Now kingdoms come undone
Fire at will
Overlords of violence
Raping all innocence

Collective Coma

Hiding in the shadows and feasting on your minds
Never saw it coming, never saw the signs
Illuminating darkness – rays of psychic reign
Never see it coming – you´ll never feel the pain
Turned on since childhood now you´re a slave
Pacified by pleasure - conditioned to obey

Descending into collective coma
Comfortably dumb – high on apathy
Can´t live without this electronic soma
Turn on – tune in – drop dead

God of sedation – god of the truth
Curse us with your blessings
Subliminal incision – carving without pain
Overlords of transmission - ruling in the shadows
As you´re sleepwalking to the gallows

Descending into collective coma
Comfortably dumb – high on apathy
Can´t live without this electronic soma
Turn on – tune in – drop dead

Conformity – the plague of the modern age
The sheeple walk in line – those fools obey
Paranoia and fear keep the ratings high
Which makes the cash-flow tight

Like the noose around your minds
Like the blind lead the blind
So empty inside

From cradle to coffin
From casket to ashes
All is saved
Eternally
They saw it all

Descending into collective coma
Comfortably dumb – high on apathy
Can´t live without this electronic soma
Turn on – tune in – drop dead
Say farewell to the times of old
It´s a brave new world
For slaves that never know
Sleep forever more

From My Cold Dead Hands


Tried to live by your ”God” but I failed in despair
My cries echo out – is there anyone there
Raging beyond control, above all sense and belief
Woke up dead in the midst of a dream

Dripping drunk from the visions obscene
Help me, get me out of this insane dream
I won´t let go
My hands grip desperately
You´ll have to take it
From my cold dead hands
From my cold dead hands

Tried to live by your laws but I spat in your face
Screams of wrath echo out – scorn for the human race
Losing all control, beyond all sense and belief
Woke up dead in the midst of a dream

Dripping drunk from the visions obscene
Help me, get me out of this insane dream
I won´t let go
My hands grip desperately
You´ll have to take it
From my cold dead hands
From my cold dead hands

I am not like you
And will never be
You rip and you tear
and try to steal my inner self
Never!
From my cold dead hands
From my cold dead hands
From my cold dead hands

Dripping drunk from the visions obscene
Help me, get me out of this insane dream
I won´t let go
My hands grip desperately
You´ll have to take it
From my cold dead hands
From my cold dead hands

Lost in Darkness and Confusion

”When you stare into the abyss –
The abyss stares into you”
Reeling at the edge
I´m a stranger to myself
Lost beyond space and time
A sinster illusion feeding itself
Within the mist of a tortured soul
An imploding spirit is gasping for air
As fear breeds fear of insane entrapment
Entrapment within total nothingness

Panic
Silent panic
Falling
Endless falling
Panic
Silent panic
Falling
Endless falling
Panic
Silent panic
Falling
Endless falling
Panic
Silent panic
Falling
Endless falling

Wandering aimless through a ghastly void
On fields of desolation
Running blind in a maze of the mind
Lost in darkness and confusion

Shut out!
A storm of fear inside my skull
Shut down!
The system can not cope anymore
Scream forth!
Silent roar
Cry out in despair
But those bitter tears won´t help me now

Jaws of realtiy are closing in
My mind escapes me
Ontological crisis
”I think – therefore I am”
- What a hoax, such a scam
Just a dream within a dream
within a dream...

Enter the nonexist
A black emptiness
Sickness of the weary soul
Crushed existence
Vanished into thin air

Shut out!
A storm of fear inside my skull
Shut down!
The system can not cope anymore
Scream forth!
Silent roar
Cry out in despair
But those bitter tears won´t help me now

Alive but walking dead
Regarding life as though beyond the tomb
Lost in darkness and confusion
Betrayed by an insane illusion

Shut out!
A storm of fear inside my skull
Shut down!
The system can not cope anymore
Scream forth!
Silent roar
Cry out in despair
But those bitter tears won´t help me now

Here Comes the Pain

Violent by nature – a life built on hate
Bastard son conceived through rape
They let you feel it – time and time again
You let them taste it – a fist all iron-clad
When they pushed you – that´s all you had
Snowball kept rolling – your life got fucked up out of hand

Here comes the pain – Brace yourself, no way out this time
Here comes the pain – Karma´s here, time to burn - die or live and learn
Here comes the pain – your number´s up – nowhere to run
Here comes the pain

Intoxication fuels the fire-head
Poison liquid, powder and pills till all is said
Violence is all you understand
Who´ll be next victim – the next within your sights
A provocation and you´ll crush with all your might
A suicide pointed outwards
Fuck it all and fucking no regrets

Here comes the pain – Brace yourself, no way out this time
Here comes the pain – Karma´s here, time to burn - die or live and learn
Here comes the pain – your number´s up – nowhere to run
Here comes the pain

You don´t know what hate can make a man do
You don´t know the pain inside
It will burst like a nuke right in your face
This fucking world made out of shit
No reason that´s just the way it is
Pungent rotten hatred

Here comes the pain – Brace yourself, no way out this time
Here comes the pain – Karma´s here, time to burn -die or live and learn
Here comes the pain – your number´s up – nowhere to run
Here comes the pain
