1. CRAZY HORSE

Lightning from above
Followed by hail
Death from above
In the wake of his trail
A vision sent this child
Becomes a man
Blood of the past has chose
His plan

I am
Crazy Horse
I am

The sacrifice of others walk within
The battlefields of death embracing him
The courage from beyond surrounds
One's soul
Walking side by side though
Graves unknown

I am
Crazy Horse
I am

I am
Crazy Horse
I am

A vision sent for the heavens
To see
This is a good day to die
Now follow me

I am
Crazy Horse
I am




2. OVERLORD

The underlying embrace of chaos and war
As the oppressed lie withering down on the floor
The Babylon of fear that you shall know
To rule and suppress, destroy and overthrow

Kings of this world
Their servants shall serve
Slaves never free

Kings of this world/ all that's to be
All that hear and all that you see

I am your overlord
Everything above and below

I am your overlord
The exodus of your will and
All that you'll ever know

The Brotherhood of snakes shall
Rule and control
the corruption
of man his fate
And his soul

Kings of this world
Their servants shall serve
Slaves never free

Kings of this world/ all that's to be
All that hear and all that you see

This flame of black which burns So bright
For the slaves shall never see
The apocalyptic end of the past
The new world shall forever be
The great conspiracy
The betrayal of god
The fires of revolution
Aimed at the heavens above




3. PARADE OF THE DEAD

Exterminate the laws of old
The sacred past begins to roll

Oh oh the denying of your death
Oh oh the machines must be fed
Parade of the dead
Parade of the dead yeah

The aslylum marches on
The men that kill what's left is gone

Oh oh the denying of your death
Oh oh the machines must be fed
Parade of the dead
Parade of the dead yeah

Revenge and retalliation,
The shadow of man's war has been killed

[solo]

The masses in the grave
Their fate can't be saved

Oh oh the denying of your death
Oh oh the machines must be fed
Parade of the dead
Parade of the dead yeah

Parade of the dead (x2)
The machines must be fed




4. DARKEST DAYS

Divided soul of a troubled man
The final fight
The final need to understand
These tangled roots ripped from the ground
Abandonment and worry
Forever to be found

Rain, rain, rain
Take this hand of sorrow
Take away my darkest days
Rain, rain, rain
Take away my darkest days
Return me for I feel I'm here to stay

For just one moment of peace I long to know
I can see the storm clouds calling me back home
The blood of the hurricane
Where the water is never still
Life is a loaded gun
Love is a bullet that sometimes kills

Rain, rain, rain
Take this hand of sorrow
Take away my darkest days
Rain, rain, rain
Take away my darkest days
Return me for I feel I'm here to stay




5. BLACK SUNDAY

Destroyer of my visions
Come and enter me
Reside over my vengeance redemption

God in my hands
Staring down on me
No use of mercy with a
Fistful of hate
The light that once shined
Has no long given way
Embracing my end
Becoming Black Sunday

Fill me with your strength now
Limitless unknown
Destroyer of my vision
Return me to my home

No need for remorse
No need to forgive
For all that remains
All day that shall forever live




6. SOUTHERN DISSOLUTION

The quicksand is rising
I'll down once more then do it again
Tired of fighting my war is
Here how long has it been?

Right on time
Right on time
All is good, all is fine
I hear you call

Southern Dissolution
Come and take it away
First I trip
Then I fall

Sinking come save me
No need to pick myself off the ground
Falling to pieces
My misery is where i'll be found
Sympathy is where I
Call my house
Spiraling stairwell
Where I choose to roam




7. TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE

As the sun sinks
Life closes tired eyes
As hello turns its back and
It greets goodbye

Never wanted to believe
Or have to understand
Time waits for no one
Child, woman or a man

The burdens that gather
The crosses that bare
What's given and taken life the
Ocean to the sand

No final curtain calls
No more storms that rearrange
To hold you in my arms and to
Know that nothings ever gonna change
To bend the hands of time
So here we stand and through it all
I love you now and beyond forever
Never wanna believe or have to understand
Time waits for no one
Child, woman or a man




8. GODSPEED HELL BOUND

Decisions that kill
And the bullets that fly
Lords of inferno
That litter the sky

Shattered cries of the
Prayers never heard
War of the gods that
Drown out the words

As the world burns
Beneath the ground
As the world burns
Godspeed Hellbound

The gears that grind
Shall never be still
The grudge that burns
Obsessed 'till it kills

Schizophrenic poems of death
Machine ever after that never rest

As the world burns
Beneath the ground
As the world burns
Godspeed Hellbound

As the world burns
Beneath the ground
As the world burns
Godspeed Hellbound

Crashing burning all shall fade
Dead and dying here to stay
Here to stay
Here to

Against his maker
No regard for his fall
The winds of the west
Bow down to his call

Famine and murder
Beside from within
The vultures gather
Devouring sin

As the world burns
Beneath the ground
As the world burns
Godspeed Hellbound




9. WAR OF HEAVEN

The throes of extermination
Holocaust of creation
The ruthless hate from within
Illusions that free one from sin

Apocalyptic
Psychosis tic
Wheels of insanity spin

The war of heaven
Forever calling
Dying on the wings of the fallen

Terror and persecution
The finality of one's solution
The falsehood of opposition
Becoming one's god and religion

Apocalyptic
Psychosis tic
Wheels of insanity spin

The war of heaven
Forever calling
Dying on the wings of the fallen (2x)

Follow me now
Don't you follow me now

The war of heaven
Forever calling
Dying on the wings of the fallen (x2)




10. SHALLOW GRAVE

The fall within this hole
My eyes are blind yet i see
Lifeless and dark
No need to feel or be
Mourned the passing of myself
I saw today
All that i once held
I watch it fall away

Nothing left to say
The broken pieces that fill
This shallow grave

Buried and left alone
I find myself empty and withdrawn
Mourned the passing of myself
I saw today all that i once held
I watch it fall away

The walls cave and the end begins
As it all comes crashing down
I hear a voice i know too well
It comes to me and pulls e down
It pulls me down




11. CHUPACABRA

(Instrumental)




12. RIDERS OF THE DAMNED

There is no absolution
Never lose what was never there
No regard for the future
As for the past i never cared

For the damned shall roll
Out of control
Out of control
Walking tall we stand
Long may you run
Riders of the damned

Salvation has been wrecked
Dissolution has been found
Punishment and judgement
Lay rotting beneath the ground




13. JANUARY

The cold that burns
The tides that drift away
No more talks about tomorrow
The past is gone and all that was today
I can't forget the cold
That fell that January day

Seasons change
For the rain has washed away
All the smiles and the tears
What's in between and all one's hopes and fears
I feel that January's cold shall never disappear

Empty sky the bitterness unfolds
Its hard to hold a memory
when there's nothing left to hold
Rain rain rain
The desert kills what's left inside
So hard to live when all you want to do is die

The book is done
No more pages left to turn
No more letters left to write
Nothing left for whom it may concern
January's cold shall forever live on.
