Hierarchies 04:09
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

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

The Deranged 04:44
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

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

Insects 05:07
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)

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

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

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 drown, wake me up in another soul
