The life unfolds inside a warming world I hear your pulse, the sound of my securing home I am floating in this silent space At once, I sense your arising unrest Racing heart Invading dark Breathing in the water, drowning in the air A place of raining ashes encircling the frail Remaining an echo of a scream Longing for the unseen The rifts leaving marks, burning into the skin The created loss is winding its way within Cutting deep the vulnerable Never meant to heal The horizon reveals a blazing light Rays of the rising sun awakening the eyes Unveiling a world that is inimical to life I feel the warmth, it goes away I felt the warmth, it went away

Come down to paradise Come down and praise Get down to paralyze Get down and praise Go! A king in a shiny robe Is reflecting a shallow glow The eyes are stamped in gold The nails sprout into climbing plants A desert of grainy blood Is serving the greedy flood The dance of prosthetic souls Condenses with the burning hopes We believe in... So come with me, feel the ease of the careless Seize all with me, there's no need to look back So come with me, feel the ease of the ruthless Seize all with me, there's no need to look back A conductor in reptile skin The spine cloned with filaments A sewing box lies in his hands A bow gilds the servants mouth A desert of grainy blood Is serving the greedy flood The dance of prosthetic souls Condenses with the burning hopes Create, exploit, erase, next one Trash is needed for treasure Produce, abuse, destroy, next one Dirt is needed for pleasure There's no fucking need, There's no need to look back So come with me, feel the ease of the careless Seize all with me, there's no need to look back So come with me, feel the ease of the ruthless Seize all with me, there's no need to look back Seize all with me, or be seized Seize all with me, enjoy the feast Seize all with me, or be seized Seize all with me, enjoy the feast

Time to harvest We can smell you This scent Time to harvest The fruit is ripe There you are What was washed on the shore today? The forgotten fruit, the gone astray You absconded to the brink of life, outside of norms, but you have survived A deviation is rather rare, a salient trait, we are aware Eyes wide and without a veil Could you grasp our opus in all detail? There is a way out of the misery, be a step ahead, drain the false regret Your kind is a minor tribe Are you wise enough to join our side? Let the secret in your blood revolve, be our neophyte, dare to evolve Let our thoughts intertwine, sever your roots, leave all behind Without us, there's no sense, there's no clarity Someone had to define a new hierarchy Now it is your call to shake the hand that holds the reins If you reject this gift, just bear in mind, you cannot stop this Without us, we would not live in sanity Someone has to refine this ideology Now it is your turn to take the hand that holds the reins If you oppose our will, be sure, we'll never stop! We will never stop Now it's time to say - Will you laud our name? What is your price? We pay - Freedom, safety, fame? Or be one of the prey - An offering for the flame We don't accept a nay Come Accede Or your path is dire - We adorn with striae We turn bones to powder - To build up our dream We sow to reap and devour - No sweet without the sour You decide your fate! I see a swarm of hollow eyes Fingers wind around my spine I was searching for the unknown Now I'm on the ledge In the deep, I view the darkened sea And feel the noise raining down on me You want to know our name? Legion

I'm not one of you No Reared in darkness Enclosed with fences A vastness overflowed with cages Existing on invisible pages From the second of my birth Injected fear poured through my stream My first awakening on earth Started with an endless scream Each afterglow widens my view Unravels the nexus Each afterglow widens my view A bitter taste unfurls In the eye of a hurricane I linger in the last windless moments Feel a tremble in my veins A part of the untold fragments Your burned down hearts, your venomed minds Building an empire that ravens the life The menace to reverse the side Intensifies my clearing sight Each afterglow widens my view A bitter taste unfurls I'm not one of you Hear the silent screams You want me to burn Fuel your dire dreams Sun seems out of reach I can hardly breathe Waves of deep blue sea Collide above me The undertow will tear me to the abyss Where light was never seen The deathblow is waiting for me Where light was never ever seen I am one of the ghosts Our light is unseen our voice is unheard I'm not one of you Hear the silent screams You want me to burn Fuel your dire dreams Sun seems out of reach I can hardly breathe Waves of deep blue sea Collide above me

Captured in the vortex Reviving my eyes A fragment falls into a standstill My thoughts darkening the sky I walk in the flames Facing the demon, reaching for my hands This part of me should never, never, never come to light It's the end of innocence But there is no other way in sight The flood of burning ash Infests my core Darkens my veins While the demon soars I can feel it underneath The rifts evolve And slowly My hurt turns into strength Riven as a creature Transcending the edge Alive in fire, waiting for the blast Circling above you like a crow Until you surrender your vicious crown The tide is turning You are the next in line The flood of burning ash Infests my core Darkens my veins While the demon soars I can feel it underneath The rifts evolve And after all My hurt turns into hate Your presence casts a shade Holding a shiver of the crown But I exhaled the fear Now I inhale the fire You are the next in line Silencing the living Burning the air around But we all breathe Your ears ignore the sound I will not follow your lethal paths I want you to taste the aftermath You are the next in line

Blackness flooding the room My wrath awaits your skin Mercy left my hands, to reveal the shrouded truth within Your flesh ruptured by the cord, eyes jaded like the heart beneath A shard of atrocity, dethroned and brought to its knees Just one part of many, as the first step to take A wall of apathy, which I am willing to break What's buried Underneath Behind a veil of red, the lost will be found A shifting paradigm, written in stains on the ground Tear open your eyes and feel your own descent Taste all you've inflicted, until you repent How can you be so dead inside? Is there nothing you can feel? Distortion is all you've left behind How can you be so dead of mind? Some are never meant to heal The screams of the fading lights Your guilt I will reveal In this blackened void There were two paths to take Guided by your true essence Deciding the end Still I'm searching for your insight But breathe your insensitivity In your state of mind The echoes would never fade away Cause now I know You are blind And you won't see No! I'm searching for anything than nothing, come on So frustrating, intoxicating What are you? This is killing me This is killing you In shattered silence Written in stains
8.
You fear the drops Running down my hands Even if I've done this To unlock your cage The widened eyes mirror shed blood They see I left this place dead and alive One day, the hate inside started to breathe Erased the fear that was hiding beneath You gaze at me Like the waves of the ocean are gone But in this reflection I sense the return of warmth One day, the hate inside started to breathe Erased the fear that was hiding beneath I abandoned the light and turned to a shadow But it's time to rewrite my echo
9.
I will keep my eyes on you We will keep our eyes on you Is there nothing left to see? Are we the blind? Well my eyes say No! You are one of a myriad Severed from the warmth Wither in the dark The deadness is hailing down Runs into your lungs Were you born to drown? No! Let the eyes of the wolves awake Hear your whispering voice Blazing up to a shout Follow me here Nothing, nothing grows in fear Running into this old knife I won't, I won't hide We are here so where are you Is there nothing left to say? Are we the hunted? Are we the prey? No! Let's return to the genesis To reset the time For all unborn eyes We are not in this world for war But they call for blood Will it make us bow? No! We're the pulse of the nemesis It's the start of the end We will never give up Follow me here Nothing, nothing grows in fear Running into this old knife I won't, I won't hide We are here so where are you Follow me here Nothing, nothing grows in fear Running into this old knife I won't, I won't hide A sea of flames ignites Standing in the rain Of glowing embers

Lying on the ground Your shadow tries to veil the light Cold blood fills up my mouth Runs through the streets To light and color them with life And blends with drops of dire skies The dust I breathe The dirt I taste Can't break my fighters face Your blade is haunting all my pain The only thing I feel is rain Your ghost is gone And you won't steal mine Decay is living in your gaze I'm feeling free No wound, no scar won't close my eyes Creates and heals my inner skies You've lost your end No turning back I set your will on fire The dust I breathe The dirt I taste Can't break my fighters face Your blade is haunting all my pain The only thing I feel is rain
11.
Feeling the pulse Of a tremor in the ground I stand in the heart of a dawn to come An innate promise Forged by fire Is the roar Of a fate rewritten The never ending circle is enclosed By our relentless will Healing the rifts Scars of the past Drawn by a storm Facing the blight Our path leads on We gain momentum within every stride In this final stand My last wrath dissolves Remaining seconds fade away Fade away And we grow Tic, tic, tic, tic, toc A revolving world Tasted the spark Of tranquility consuming the chaos Like a tidal wave Purifying the ashes And reviving This crimson ground Hard Break Part Drawn by a storm Facing the blight Our path leads on We gain momentum within every stride In this final stand My last wrath dissolves Remaining seconds fade away Fade away We're here to find a way to breathe To breathe, to breathe out the demons And if we all go down There is nothing left of your crown The dream passed on Interlude Break We have tasted the spark A flash before my eye Will not bring us down As long as we breathe we will fight I can feel my dusk and my fate gets clear The ocean is a hydra And this wave will bring me home We're here to find a way to breathe To breathe, to breathe out the demons And if we all go down There is nothing left of your crown

Sand shining like gold, a shimmering sea Everything is illuminated and the tables are empty The circle has revolved, all upside down The ground under the feet and the sirens are quiet I'm floating through my shell, through my skin, through my face I'm loosing gravity, but there are no tears We've lost a lot, but gained so much more No one will be forgotten and I dream of infinity An old friend strokes my shoulder, with a smile on his face, he says 'it was worth it' I hope he is right All the ghosts in my head, made me blur, nearly dead The demon is gone, now my eyes are clear I was taken by the wind Beneath the silence I still hear the wolves sing The new scent spreads Sere earth starts to breathe And severed roots grow back into the deep Dissolved and whole, my feral eyes still gleam They let the rain in To drown your dire dreams If you want to see me dead It`s much too late I'm way beyond that If you want to see me dead It`s much too late I am the outgrown sentiment that you always feared You can never destroy me You can never destroy us
