1. RELIC OF THE PAST

A relic of the past erased by modern time
A glimpse in the unknown
No more out of sight and no more out of
Mind welcome the face of death

Let them rest in the arms of slumber
Raw, gaping wounds inside
Harsh silence enforced peace
We forget how hard life used to be

A relic of the past erased by modern time
A glimpse in the unknown
No more out of sight and no more out of
Mind welcome the face of death

Dark eyes remain open
Swallowing despair
Made to look alive
Face of insanity

Kneeling for a picture
For the first timein their lives
Countenance of grief
Because one of them is dead

Let them rest in the arms of slumber
Raw, gaping wounds inside
Harsh silence enforced peace
We forget how hard life used to be

A relic of the past erased by modern time
A glimpse in the unknown
No more out of sight and no more out of
Mind welcome the face of death

Immortalize the dearly

A way to remember
The eulogy is read
Raw emotions
In memory of the dead

A relic of the past erased by modern time
A glimpse in the unknown
No more out of sight and no more out of
Mind welcome the face of death

Dark eyes remain open
Swallowing despair
Made to look alive
Face of insanity

From carriage to coffin
Waves of anguish through the room
Family with their dead child
Death has come too soon




2. DECLINE AND FALL

Comparatively peaceful warfare
Masked by political strife
Increasingly arbitrary decisions
And capricious behaviour

Alienation
Decline and fall

A unique status as a source of god like power
Reinforcing the image as a demigod
Stressed his own personal uniqueness
Tendencies now increased to haughty proportions

Ineffable sense of destiny
Outstanding achievements
Delusions of grandeur
Desire to conquer the world

Alienation
Decline and fall

Lustful and bruel habits
Became second nature
From a kindom of gold
To oneof iron and rust

Decline and fall

Consolidation of power
Began a reign of terror
Brutal misruel provokes civil strife
Lapsing into insanity

They formed a conspiracy
To supplant him from the throne
Contribute to his assassination
Declared a public enemy

A unique status as a source of god like power
Reinforcing the image as a demigod
Stressed his own personal uniqueness
Tendencies now increased to haughty proportions

Consolidation of power
Began a reign of terror
Brutal misruel provokes civil strife
Lapsing into insanity




3. CELEBRATORY GUNFIRE

I'm sensitive, insecure...
Things I've always hated
But each time that I've been used
These traits are overrated

Blood rushing through my veins,
The death of one has soon to come
I choose the weapon I know best
Come over here and be my guest

I've got the bullets, I've got the gun
Show me your body and let the blood run

Celebratory gunfire! Celebratory gunfire!

In moments of oppression
My battle cry is heard
I will terminate a life
I give you my word

Blood rushing through my veins,
The death of one has soon to come
I choose the weapon I know best
Come over here and be my guest

I've got the bullets, I've got the gun...

There's nowhere to run
And nowhere to hide

Celebratory gunfire! Celebratory gunfire!

I've got the bullets, I've got the gun...

When shadows begin to disappear
Darkness fills with all its fear
Back into the darkened state
Where Hell is home I'll meet my fate




4. ENDLESS STRIFE

Screams of silence
Through walls of steel
Bloody tracks of history
Give me my present feel

No sense of morality
Brutality in here
Beaten, raped and mutilated
No boundaries of fear

Relieved by exile
The joy of gain
You know what will happen
It's just postponement of pain

In solitude I murder silence
You need to be free
The hatred I caused
I know that you detest me

Alone I live in endless strife
I surely cannot break
Anger wrapped up in deceit
You've made a grave mistake

Right now, defenceless
But my time will come
After this exile
You're utterly undone




5. DETERIORATION FROM PERFECTION

Superiority
Perfection

Natural selection
Evolutionary change
Preservation
Reproductive success

A once perfect creation
Will soon come crashing down
The end of my utopia
In sorrow I will drown

Deterioration from perfection

The most versatile generalist
Has the greatest success
Burning rage inside of me
Irrational beliefs

Deterioration from perfection

Obsessive need for flawlessness
Unattainable goals
Higher rate of morality
Perfectionism is killing me

Deterioration from perfection
Can't take it anymore
Intense fear of failure
Deterioration from perfection




6. UNCHALLENGED DOMINANCE

You can call me crazy
I'm pretty much insane
Kill for entertainment
Forture my second name

Humiliate for pleasure
Superior to the weak
Interest in violence
Now it's time for me to seek

Battling is useless
There's nothing left to say
Intensify demands
I win this anyway

I am invincible

This pattern of humiliation
Made me the way I am
Taking down anyone
Is the best I can

My unchallenged dominance
My lack of empathy
Treat you in a callous manner
My love for cruelty

Death is a common thing
Embracing it's cold touch
You'll die for my perfection
Thank you so very fucking much




7. MODERN DAY FREAK

Sideshow by the seashore
Congress of the odd
Naturel born freaks
Deranged, insane, oblivious

Nowadays a new revolution
Becomes a strong obsession
There's no more anonymity
A public cry for attention

You're just a modern day freak
Another sheep in the herd
Just a modern day freak
You're utterly absurd

Travelling exhibitions
Living curiosities
Monsters of soiety
Era of the freaks

Childlike attitudes
And short attention spans
Immature outbursts
Rewire the brain

Nowadays a new revolution
Becomes a strong obsession
There's no more anonymity
A public cry for attention

You're just a modern day freak
Another sheep in the herd
Just a modern day freak
You're utterly absurd

The world's gone mad
By the need to share
Thoughts are unleashed
Consequences forgotten

This social self obsession
Turns our lives into hell
It's a fucking freak show
I know you all too well

Crisis of identity
Escessive self love




8. THE LEGION

This is the legion
Do not ask questions
Nor make suggestions
The legion, our fatherland

We will accept you
We will shelter you
Protected by the troops
We may send you out to die

A new identity
Place for redemption
Enlistend men
Fight for causes not their own

Exclusively created
Our allegiance is strong
Brothers in arms
No political principles

The code of honour
Our weapon is sacred
Never surrender
Respect vanquished enemies

Soldier of fortune
Accomplish the mission
At rist of your own life
You've got nothing to lose

This is the legion
Do not ask questions
Nor make suggestions
The legion, our fatherland

We will accept you
We will shelter you
Protected by the troops
We may send you out to die

Erase and start over
Place of salvation
Enlisted men
Fight for desire and private gain

Exclusively created
Our allegiance is strong
Brothers in arms
No political principles




9. CAROUSEL OF DEATH

Norms of decency
Language of morality
Sense of right and wrong
Ideological domination

This lasting state of war
With no clear ending
Ongoing tensions
Escalate at any moment

Secure the shadow before it fades
There's no time to waste
Secure the shadow before it fades
Look death into the face

Process of killing
Attaining our goals
Collective endeavour
Carousel of death

From this ability
To destroy one another
When the target is set
We enter the conquered nation

Let us salute the prisoners of war
Satisfy emotional hunger
Liable for destruction
Decorate the earth with graves

Mankind carries on perpetual war

Secure the shadow before it fades
There's no time to waste
Secure the shadow before it fades
Look death into the face




10. MANIFEST OF A MEGALOMANIAC

Transient thoughts
Refuse to put my dream aside
Eyes set on the goal
I won't accept defeat

Taking by force
Subsisting on live prey
Undeterred by preposterousness
The shade into rapacity

It's everything I fight for
It's the life to which I swear
Dominion of darkness
The depths of your despair

Power and possession
The only thing I need
Never shall I fail myself
Megalomaniac's creed

I'm proud of my life goal
To keep myself alive
Guardian of greed
That's my way of life

I'm no longer satisfied
I need more and more
Feel like owning everything
I must go oon for sure

It's everything I fight for
It's the life to which I swear
Dominion of darkness
The depths of your despair

Power and possession
The only thing I need
Never shall I fail myself
Megalomaniac's creed

I need more and more
Never shall I fail myself

It's everything I fight for
It's the life to which I swear
Dominion of darkness
The depths of your despair




11. CARNIVAL OF DECEPTION

Possessed by rage
Feelings of insignificance
A lak of compassion
Violence is glorified

Still waters run deep
Carnival of deception

Everyone seems normal
Until you get to know them
Motivated by revenge
They take your innocence

It's the ordinary type
Quiet and highly intelligent

When there's no more rome in hell
Freaks will walk the earth
Looking for a scapegoat
Policy of hatred

Struggle with their identities
Social isolation

Everyone seems normal
Until you get to know them
Motivated by revenge
They take your innocence

It's the ordinary type
Quiet and highly intelligent

I'm the master of your life
I take your soul
I'm the master of your life
I decide your goal

Troubled souls see the glorification
The attention the killers get
Sense of entitlement
Intolerant attitudes
Inspired by the massacre, try to imitate
And the cycle continues
