Lyrics

1. BURY ME AN ANGEL

Symbolical and mystical
Between life and death we're torn
A constant struggle
Like an apocrypha
Nobody can be certain

A thousand days, spent in hell
The ultimate sacrifice
Your voyage starts
With a question mark
But the distant future
Will not tell

[Chorus:]
Bury me an angel
Set my black soul free!!

Blackened chariots
Bearing evil souls
Ride the surface of burning holes
Nocturnal traveller
You represent the ruined spirit
Symbolical and mystical
You shall be damned for all time

[Chorus]

(guitar solo)

[Chorus]




2. DARK INSANITY

Weak and sick I crawl
In the dust of past mistakes
Leaving for the darkness
Of tears and cold heartaches

Suffer in this grief
Of forever burning hate
The ashes of my life
By the torment you create

[Chorus :]
On my knees
remembering
The wasted years of dark insanity

The rage increases fast
As the memories eat me alive
God, I wish this to end
But I'm not prepared to die

No more a human being
Just a fool of anxiety
Unable to escape
The darkest insanity

[Chorus]




3. EUREKA

Stumbling through
This complex puzzle that is my life
Thirsty for knowledge
But drinking from poisoned fountains

Flashbacks from my past
God knows how long I'll last
Images of you
Leading my soul astray

These four walls
Are closing in, suffocating me
My last wish is to
Transcend from this dimension of boredom

Wrap your arms around me
Like a circle around the sun
I loved you so
Why couldn't you love me?

[Chorus :]

EUREKA! I found the secret of life!
EUREKA!

Stumbling through
This complex puzzle that is my life
Thirsty for knowledge
But drinking from poisoned fountains

Flashbacks from my past
God knows how long I'll last
Images of you
Leading my soul astray

[Chorus]

(solo)

These four walls
Are closing in, suffocating me
My last wish is to
Transcend from this dimension of boredom

Wrap your arms around me
Like a circle around the sun
I loved you so
Why couldn't you love me?

(chorus)




4. IDOLATRESS

These gardens of angst
In which I stand
Lost and confused
Hungry for more
Eager to cross
This river of tears

Safe in this void
In which I live
Free from despair
Weaving a web
Surrounding my soul
Imprisoned distress

[Chorus]
In a world of dying angels
Trespassers on unknown domains

Traumatic defeat
This time I'll burn
For one thousand years
Bearing the truth
Deep down inside
It dies with me

Taste the pure salt
Of misery
Hell's ecstasy
Feel destiny
Breathe in your neck
Cut you so deep

[Chorus] (x2)

(solo)

Twisting my mind
Living in sin
Dying within
Wicked and mean
Sinister eyes
Staring at me

These gardens of angst
In which I stand
Lost and confused
Hungry for more
Eager to cross
This river of tears

[Chorus] (x2)
