Track Name: Sermon
sermon

I think your God’s got a sick sense of humor
what would he say if I knocked on his door?
I want to tell him "I'm not a believer as long as I know
that your words are not true!”

I think your God is a master of bad faith
why do you crave but don’t touch his blessed gifts?
I want to ask him "God how can you sleep
well as long as you know that your words are abused?”

I think your God plays a game just for himself
why can he change all the rules as he likes?
I want to show him that he is a liar
as long as no one has a fair chance to win

(chorus)
what kind of world do you want?
history starts now!
there is no need to swamp it out!
what kind of freedom do you want?
history starts now!
easy to handle but hard to master!
history starts now! for you!
Track Name: Egotrap
egotrap

trapped – wounded integrity
falling down, actually
hail to their bogus gods
taking everything apart

forced – unleashed complexity
breaking down, silently
essential for the nasty wimps
you're a victim of their whims

outlawed – performed serenity
coming down, instantly
hunted by a crippled mind
you search the button for rewind

torched – inflicted dependency
burning down, painfully
tortured by a deadly sound
you need a jump to reach the ground

(chorus)
cruel eyes are deflecting the panic from the fear
cruel eyes never reach the inside – they will sear
feel the pain I stored in the inside of my brain
feel the pain – it is the only thing living in my vein
Track Name: Research
research

I don't talk about the things I don't like
my thoughts are mine – make sure you understand
creeping betrayal – peaks in an blood oath
a hard-won insight – my source of strength
I don't talk about the things I don't know
minds without spines – they're scourges of their self
a mental downfall – peaks in dependence
self-defamation – a mortal constraint

I don't talk about the things I don't want
my life is mine – please keep this in your mind
a worn depression – peaks in an poem
moral in rage – the silent reserve
I don't talk about the things I don't need
the waste of feelings – retarded egos
a gruesome omen – unveils the secret
versatile lies – they will prevail

(chorus)
morbid worries never win – the flames of hope are burning
take me away – show me an exit from their lies
commanded minds will never grow – their marbled statues fall in
please rescue me – I don’t need comfort 'cause I want this fight
Track Name: Faceless
faceless

every word you say is crap – please don’t deny
you bore me to death, your image is a lie
there's no tiny sense in your stupid din
for me it doesn't matter, but that’s another thing
you are on a hunt for ordinary minds
everywhere I go – faces with your signs
you say you're in the fight – a fight against the aged
I hope you understand… I think you are deranged!

you say my time is up – excuse me, you are wrong
who always follows leaders will never go in front
outworn – your scatology, you call it revolution
but if I count the facts… you celebrate stagnation
you say you're back on track – but you never were on it
and please remember this – I see through your shit
a word can be a weapon – yours disarm yourself
I hope someone will tell you it is five to twelve

(chorus)
you want to be the injection
but you can't cure the infection
enough of hypocrisy
I won’t waste my respect
all your victims pleased to death – not able to select
you cannot win the election
accept my final rejection
I hate your stupid words
I see your empty face
artificial fiendishness – not more than a fucking glaze
Track Name: Elements
elements

I am like dust under the sun
a temper of destruction
anger and hate
melting together in a pot of lies
malicious deceit
followed by an explosion
life and death
controlled by the force of gravity

I am like sand in a storm
a tiny thing in motion
blackout and letdown
hand in hand on an unknown path
annoying malfunction
unstoppable erosion
friction and hold
gravity kills if you don’t fix your point
I am like men on earth
a victim of devotion
terror and violence
feeding each other with their seed of hate
gruesome despite
bullets release the tension
belief and creed
no turn without the axis of gravity

(chorus)
I am the storm shaping the land
known from "The Book"
I am the flood
I am the flame
which burns your skin
a might on earth
I am the quake
I am the light
in darkest nights
tears of the sky
I am the rain
I am the heat
which melts the ice
thorn in your flesh
I am the time
Track Name: Gazing Eyes
gazing eyes

take a little drug – your way to interact
rehash your ego – thoughts feel so unreal
to realize your moves – a beginning not a proof
hunt a vision – you'll just catch your life
there is no need to say that you’re disgusting me
try to combine – you'll see that you still feel
you need another wrap – to bear your fucking crap
your partners should keep contact with your eyes

try to find your bliss – locate what you won’t miss
tell your story – comfort to reveal
getting pissed all day – no matter what they say
try to safe a little self-esteem
maybe you’ll resurrect – just find strength to select
try to report your sorrows to your friends
you'll never reach your aim – there’s no one else to blame
your partners should keep contact with your eyes

(chorus)
desperation is a measure
hope is just a matter of grief
shivering, smiling but possessed
white lies aren't an option to see
gazing eyes in competition
willing to succeed
fighting, purifying, holding your own
a hopeless purpose to beat
Track Name: Kraft
Kraft

Bin ich am Leben, weil ich denke – weil mein Geist mir Würde schenkt?
Sind die Fasern meines Stolzes strapaziert und überdehnt?
Ist mein Antlitz auch mein Ich, grauenvoll es anzufassen,
liegt im Wahn der Eitelkeit auch der Grund sich selbst zu hassen?

Bin ich am Leben, weil ich atme – weil mein Blut im Schädel pocht?
Sind die Lasten, die ich trage, schwerer als ich sie erhofft?
Ist der Dolch in meinem Herzen scharf genug es zu zerfetzen,
wirkt die Summe meiner Taten auf die Dauer nur zersetzend?

Willst du nicht verstehen – kannst du nicht vergeben?
Bist du dominant oder spürst du meine Hand?
Kannst du widerstehen – willst du untergehen?
Spürst du den Widerstand oder bist du bei Verstand?

Bin ich am Leben, weil ich liebe – weil mein Hass die Wut entfacht?
Sind die Waffen, die ich wähle, Reaktion oder bedacht?
Klingt die Stimme tief in mir nach Vernunft oder betörend,
sind Gedanken, die mich treiben, nützlich oder einfach störend?

Bin ich am Leben, weil ich fühle – weil mein Geist nicht sehen kann?
Sind die Schäden, die ich richte, letztlich doch mein Eigentum?
Ist der Inhalt meiner Venen angedickt und giftversetzt,
wird der Rest von meiner Seele durch die Dunkelheit gehetzt?

(chorus)
Gib mir die Kraft – den Stolz frisst die Flamme,
gib mir die Kraft – kein Land in Sicht,
gib mir die Kraft – den Weg zu beschreiten,
gib mir die Kraft – die Mauer bricht.
Zeig mir den Weg zur Erlösung – doch nicht auf allen Vieren,
bin das Produkt kranker Geister – will meinen Stolz nicht verlieren.
Zeig' mir den Weg zur Erleuchtung – hab' keine Chance zu entfliehen,
ich bin das Kind deiner Zweifel – verdammt zum Niederknien.
Track Name: Film
film

rushed – decayed – uncertain memories
I see scraps – don't know if they're real
my head’s a hole – scars without a history
mind’s in hate – collapses stopped by sedatives

cracked – confused – aware of madness
I run riot – don't know where I belong
my life's a maze – every day's a mystery
eyes in fear – insight caused by misery
raped – deranged – menacing flashback
I taste blood – don't know if it's mine
hands incrusted – cold meat without identity
brains in rage – crash without deliverance

riot / raped / deranged / menacing rage

(chorus)
hey you, take my hate – do you want to leave today?
don't pardon me – my mind suspends
violence, despair – towers of destruction
all breaks down – don't want this for eternity
hey you, take my pain – do you want to see my life?
I hope you will not lose control
rage, love – towers of existence
all breaks down – opposites don’t exist / co-exist
Track Name: Fading (Like A Cloud In A Storm)
Fading (like a cloud in a storm)

can't you see?
it’s gonna be the hardest part
my heart in flames – can hear my pulse
carry away those aching thoughts
never again, never again
I hope this pain will last a while
please remain, oh please remain
why don't you leave another day?

can't you hear?
it’s gonna be the loudest calm
I breathe the world – can see my thoughts
I'm like a puppet on a string
never again, never again
I hope this fear will last a while
please remain, oh please remain
why don't you leave another day?

can't you feel?
it’s gonna be the sweetest pain
a breeze like ice – can taste my blood
you cannot con the ferryman
never again, never again
I hope this pain will last a while
please remain, oh please remain
why don't you leave another day?

chorus)
fading like a cloud in a storm
we send a prayer to whom it may concern
there is no need for support
this is more forceful than a shot
this is not a goodbye – this is a sanction of God
Track Name: Gamble With A Lie
gamble with a lie

a legion of words – parallel to the truth
the base of evil in a smart disguise
if I Iook into mirrors I see this face
coldblooded action with tricky eyes

if I look into mirrors I can see a man
he seems to be honest but betrays when he can
no one can say how he’s going to act
an all-embracing stupor...
more hidden lies to detect

another day – the same identity-play
since I remember it’s been my way
pretended feelings all over the place
if I look sharp – it’s not my face

(the dullness of truth – it is a human disease
imagination – the realm of our minds and our creed
and if there is a hell maybe there will be a God
but it's a fucking fact that he will take the last slot

(chorus)
nobody is cheating me – I do it by myself
nobody is hunting me but I gamble with a lie
there's nothing else to say – frustration and despair
I feel their eyes on me ‘cause I gamble with a lie
