Emulate 06:32
emulate I'm not a victim, I am an aim mistrusting everyone who likes me at once face to face they’re telling lies do they believe that they can fool me? sucking phrases - global abasement no one's too proud to kiss my ass they crawl like maggots - I am surrounded I'm affronting people cause they're not special sad situation… I'm controlled by them there's no escape – I've to adapt oh Lord have mercy! they come to me what should I do - they nauseate me try to ignore them – I'm getting better can see them fall down from their ladder Don't give a damn about their rules they think they're different – I hate corrosion they're chumming up… very disgusting my daily soap, but the duty calls pretending joy, don't want to be here the champagne poisons – self-emulation I play my part, disgusting in private I’d like to play an ego-shooter right in my "cross hair" a gleeful face We share a smile – I pull the trigger (chorus) this is a party I'm not invited but I’m involved – unsatisfied this is compulsion, they call it fun for me it's horrible, I come undone it's like a movie, my plot unwritten I am miscasted but they do listen this is burlesque no way to leave they call it life, it frightens me

anger management struggling into deepest instincts wearing nothing as my thoughts creating more than just one fettle my mind is nothing as a game stumbling through my pumping veins grumbling like a wounded brute standing for a moment crying the truth is harder then the strain searching for my lost dimensions wearing nothing as my rage sending structured rays of hate revenge the only curing agent (source) crawling to face the consequence no remorse and no escape standing for a moment doubting the truth is harder then the strain [chorus] out of control - without a thought defending climes – not my resorts [end] mental leaps are just as fast as I can adrenaline straight to my brain my engine runs at high-performance fear starts an adjustment process

Blackguard 04:59
blackguard do you believe in God because you need one who cares maybe it is the right way but please don't cry – He can't feel it do you believe in love because you need one who feels maybe it lasts a long time but please don't cry if it fails do you believe in words because you trust in your friends maybe they don't let you down but please don't cry when they left do you believe in your lucky charm because you need one to lean on maybe he's not strong enough so please don't cry if you're wrong (chorus) how far, how far do I have to go is this the answer I don’t want to know the coldest face a life can show how long, how long do I have to stay is this the price I have to pay it saps my power I waste away

Komplex 04:31
Komplex Nichts ist nichts ohne Dich. Ohne Dich ist alles klar. Klar ist, wenn wir den Auslöser sehen. Sehen meint das wir noch nicht verstehen. Verstehen folgt meist nach dem Wort. Das Wort meint jeder anders. Anders ist eines jeden Herz Ohne Herz agieren wir blind. Einsamkeit führt oft zur Poesie - Poesie erdrückt den Schmerz. Schmerzen Beweis der Existenz. Unsere Existenz hat einen Sinn Der Sinn - gemacht ihn zu verlieren. Verlust - ein steter Stein. Steine Symbol der Ewigkeit doch diese Ewigkeit – sie stirbt allein. (chorus 1) Was? Was ist das? Das Leben schlägt zurück! Was? Was soll das? Wir waren ihm doch entrückt… Ist es die Komplexität unserer Identität die uns ins Wanken bringt? Soll das alles sein? Ein schöner Schein – dem die Grundlage fehlt. Was? Was ist das? Was? Was soll das? Was? (chorus 2) Was? Was ist das? Das Leben schlägt zurück! Was? Was soll das? Wir waren ihm doch entrückt… Ist es die Komplexität unserer Identität die uns ins Wanken bringt? Soll das alles sein? Ein schöner Schein – dem die Grundlage fehlt. Ist die Komplexität unserer Identität tatsächlich so komplex? Das kann nicht alles sein! Der schöne Schein – der uns den Blick verklärt! Was? Was ist das? Was? Was soll das? Was?

Creed 05:53
creed you read a book, its cover a reliable face take care, take care you kiss a hand, she's wearing a golden ring beware, beware do you know how an angel flies did you ever see take care, take care do you know how a mother cries did you ever hear beware, beware you hear the words, from where you gain your strength take care, take care you get the urge, to reach a higher state beware, beware do you think your demon dies did you ever see take care, take care do you think the Father lies did you ever hear beware, beware (chorus) you put your trust in me you waste your soul for me is this the truth you want to see you spent your time for me you waste your life for me is this the truth you want to hear

Fractured 04:56
Fractured disrooted by desire – mission complete! feelings on the screen - <enter> or <delete> all I ever had is gone – I'm sick and tired of it assignment and remorse are just another way to quit fractured by illusion – mission complete! sandstorm in a cup – be honest or deceive all I ever had is gone – up to my head in mud assignment and remorse save me from the shot murdered by suspicion – mission complete! downward in a spiral – fate becomes concrete all I ever had is gone – too far and out of sight assignment and remorse are just the opposites of fight (chorus) are you on a hunt for salvation or are you the hostage of your fears do you catch good opportunities or are you not able to fight are you abandoned by society or are you fractured by your tears do you believe in fate or are you the victim of your mind

Zu Staub 05:29
Zu Staub Vor mir eine tiefe Schlucht. Im Rücken der Grund für meine Flucht. Ein morscher Steg der einzige Weg, der einst war das Ziel - nun vor mir liegt. Die Schlucht so tief, der Weg nicht breit ein Gedanke ist es, der den Weg vereist. Mit einem Mal steh' ich reglos da mein Herz gefriert, der Blick ist starr. Vor mir ein morscher Steg. Im Rücken das Ziel das ich verfehlt. Die tiefe Schlucht, der einzige Weg, der nie war das Ziel – nun vor mir liegt. (chorus) Leer und gebrochen, gemartert, zerstochen - dem Wege vertraut – das Herz verstaubt - steh' ich nun vor Dir. Kannst Du nicht verstehen, das in meiner Brust kein Herz mehr schlägt? Bin ich wirklich bereit? Für eine Zeit ohne Wehmut und Schmerz?

Outrage 04:09
outrage chasten yourself scars on your back feel the disruption panic attacks down in your room blood on your hands feel the affliction the craving reigns bleakness and sweat thorns in your flesh sweetest repression your life a reject anguish and pain tears on your face feel the dissension blessing in disguise (bridge) this time there's no one outside no deliverance behind your curtain they say that love is the light too weak to carry the burden (chorus) prayers and sins – stigmata and signs mental destruction deserving pain - the greatest salvation a morbid attraction expanded awareness – a 2nd soul results of your mind blood and pain for a higher state overkill - overkill

Cold 04:10

our darkest path reckless we are - but never tell what will you find - behind our pride like a match in heavy surf backstrokes causes our breakdown lies - we're always lying nothing in here is safe as it seems a theory of perception, truth is nothing as a word brassbound we are - still in the dark. we’ll never find the way to your heart. we're dabblers in a gambling room. daily routine – competition. wretched maggots on the run - equality is not worth the paper. entities without a right - infatuated by ourselves. (chorus) we're walking on the darkest path. the darkest path we've ever been on. did we create a monster or do we party farewell? are our souls calmed or are they starting to yell? we're walking on our darkest path. the darkest path we've ever been on. we're piling lies along these path. we are alone on our darkest path.

scars (not just words) your artful eyes will never looking at me again all over your wrinkly hands the marks of work your neverending fight - fun against life the cigarette in your hand – you know it shouldn't be there I'm in the trolley behind your back one reason for me to say I love you – I miss you – I need you – not just words… your smiling face will never watching me again all over your opressed body the marks of war your neverending calmness – you never went through the roof the bottle in your hand – you know it shouldn't be there I'm in the trolley behind your back one reason for me to say I love you – I miss you – I need you – not just words… I never got a talk, I never wanted more you ever were my silent helper – I never had to ask I cry it loud, I let you down – let you down in your darkest hour I was too weak – was too weak – not just words, not just words… (end) please satisfy me this final wish – I hope you can hear my screams forgive me, forgive me, forgive me – I know I don't deserve this! I know I don't deserve this! But I miss you! I love you, I need you, I hold you in my heart! I miss you! I need you! I love you! hold you in my heart forever! forever! forever! forever! forever! not just words...
