Track Name: 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 their shallow ways

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 by the roar 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

Starving 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
Track Name: 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 age
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
None 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
Stigmatized by the rest of them
So he moved apart, to plan his revenge
Back to the place where misfortunes 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

You'll get your own remorse

I suppose it’s written in stone
I suppose it’s carried from birth
I suppose you carry your load
Bearing your cross on your own

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
Track Name: 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 the eyes, terrified, you will see a flame burn

The rise of the last
To summon all 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 land to challenge our own destiny
Embarking on a quest to turn around their apathy
And in our eyes, terrified, they will see our flame burn

The rise of the last
To summon all strengths
Reborn into chaos

Drawing nearer, severing our ties past
Weathering the storm to reach our haven
Drawing nearer to our bittersweet 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

The rise of the last
To summon all strengths
Reborn into chaos
Track Name: 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
Track Name: 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)
Track Name: 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
Track Name: 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
Track Name: 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
