Lyrics


1. SADISTIC LULLABYE

Let's die tonight you know I'm right
I've got the feeling strong enough
To break 10,000 souls apart
I'm injecting my life into your veins
No experience to strong this pain!
Pain in life cuts like a knife
Open the book of empty pages
What do you see?

I'm the master of pain
Waiting in vain
My pride is slain
Watch me die during a sadistic lullabye!

A gathering of long lost souls
Are carrying my memories written in the name of pain
I love to hear thier veins screaming for more
Vengeance is the law exploding music
You can't catch time, it doesn't exist
Life's a sculpture that can't resist!

I'm the master of pain
Waiting in vain
My pride is slain
Watch me die during a sadistic lullabye!

Engaged with destiny my life is yours
But you don't know me
We bleed together
Like an ever flowing stream
With souls so black oh so empty!

Sadistic Lullabye!!




2. STEELBATH SUICIDE

In the night when you feel those electric desires
Neverending noise from chains
And the world is on fire!
Right!

Steelbath suicide
Enter the other side
Steelbath suicide
On wheels of steel we'll ride

Sleeping tight as the lead is pounding in the air
Leave this world only metal is fair!
Right!

Steelbath suicide
Enter the other side
Steelbath suicide
On wheels of steel we'll ride

Steelbath suicide
Enter the other side
Steelbath suicide
On wheels of steel we'll ride




3. THE CHAINHEART MACHINE

I am the sledgehammer messiah, waiting for sins to be born
And if you stop for a moment you can hear the machines are Playing your song
There's nowhere to run and nowhere to speak
I'm gaining you're falling into me
Tell me you piece of shit, how does it feel
To be down here with me?
Living, living, dreaming dreaming
Drowning!

Chainheart Machine
By cosmic retribution I've been sent
Cause I'll rise, You'll fall
Roll the dice!
My call

Tick tock, time to die
No use reaching as time goes by
Self absorbed egotistical...fuck!
I'm reigning your life!

Chainheart Machine
By cosmic retribution I've been sent
Cause I'll rise, You'll fall
Roll the dice!
My call

Preaching for the Sun
They say there is a sun
So I'm preaching for the sun
They say there...is a sun

My body is chained to the ground where I walk
They stalk they hunt my every thought with
Execution, Evolution, Disillusion Pre-conclusion
Why is it me?

Chainheart Machine
Your suffering will be legendary, even in hell!
Cause i'll rise, you'll fall
Roll the dice!

My call!
My call!




4. BULLETBEAST

Mirror mirror on the wall
Who's the mightiest of them all
Every little question, none who will be answered
Staring at the bulletbeast pointing his gun
Killing-there's nothing in my seeing what's wrong
Running-or is it just that i'm...
Fearing -in fears for your lives you scream like a pig
Thrilling-my pulse will go up and yours will go down!

Why, Why - I'm in for the quest
There's no turning back once you've tried
Why, Why, you're all laid to rest
The bullet is sent by the king
Once again I'll tell you my friend
Don't trust anything you'll see "redrum" overdose
Telling no lies my triggerfinger is divine
Hatelights-aim at the chest fire at will
Lesson-A lesson in pain, waiting for....
Vengeance-chasing my footsteps not to be found
Instruction-instructor unknown, but he will proceed!

Why, Why - but you wont resist
I'm back once again I will kill
Why, Why, I'm put to the test I'll never go down to the Ground!

So you wanna play rough?
Say hello to my little friend
With my finger on the trigger
You're watching the judge of today
Killing-there's nothing in my seeing what's wrong
Running-or is it just that I'm...
Fearing -in fears for your lives you scream like a pig
Thrilling-my pulse will go up and yours will go down!

Why, Why - I'm in for the quest
There's no turning back once you've tried
Why, Wwy, you're all laid to rest
The bullet is sent by the king
Once again I'll tell you my friend
Don't trust anything you'll see "redrum" overdose
Telling no lies my triggerfinger is divine
Hatelights-aim at the chest fire at will
Lesson-A lesson in pain, waiting for....
Vengeance-chasing my footsteps not to be found
Instruction-instructor unknown, but he will proceed!

Last time, last sign My face have turned to dust
Underground, no sound Of human innocence
Hatelights-aim at the chest fire at wiill
Lesson-a lesson in pain, waiting for....
Vengeance-chasing my footsteps not to be found
Instruction-instructor unknown, but he will proceed!

Why, Why - but you wont resist
I'm back once again I will kill
Why, Why, I'm put to the test I'll never go down to the Ground!




5. GENERATION SPEEDKILL

Maximize my pleasure maximize my pain
Til a ben heaven send in this downward spiral with no end
Angelface filled with sin i will lick it clean. Fixate my Eyes to the tv scream

7. NEEDLEFEAST

Well,it's one for the money,two for the show it makes
No difference where I'll go Push injections in my skin
To make my mission begin Needles to fly,needlefeast,
Needles to die,needlefeast Gotta get inside,gotta get
Inside,needles to die needles to fly Burning up my
Hunger,lay it all to rest! Waking up my hostile pain,
Put it to the test When all is said and done I tell you

Brickwall I'm a solid player and I'm standing tall Who
Can make me fall On this very road...Needles to fly,
Needlefeast,needles to die,needlefeast Gotta get

Another punch It makes me catch my breath Needles

Before you steal my breath away I like to know if I was led
Astray Neurosis comes to me at night,It holds the truth
Cause I'm... one for the money,two for the show
Straight to hell is where I go! Go!Go!Go!

This life I cannot face it,with the writings on the Wall,this
Time-it's hard to face it As I'm screaming... What am I Doing
Here?!!




8. GRAND FAILURE ANTHEM

Look at the pale face in the sky It seems so ravaged inside
The sense of rage is burning my eyes,burning in my eyes,
Burning to deny I'm apart of a fallen machine Which
Reflects my life of misery - please guide my way through
Fallen galaxies Grand Failure anthem - you'll never see What
You've become we want to get some well-earned respect
Before we choke Well,there isn't anything that will kill Our
Lust,our lust for power...they say: "may you get an hour in
Heaven before the devil knows your dead!" Grand failure
Anthem - you'll never see what you've become we'll never
Get some well-earned respect cause we have..Failed!Failed!
Failed!,Ripped another spine til'the end of time Failed!
Failed!Failed! We're being flushed down the drain

And the one you hate,will suddenly be yourself,and it's All to
Late...
And the one you hate,will suddenly be yourself,and it's All to
Late...
And the one you hate,will suddenly be yourself,and it's All to
Late...

Anything,anything what will Make my conscience clean Is
There anyone out there,who can restore what we have
Destroyed? Grand failure anthem - you'll never see what
You've become we'll never ever get some well-earned
Respect cause we have...Failed!Failed!Failed! Ripped
Another spine til'the end of time Failed!Failed!Failed!
We're being flushed down the drain

And the one you hate,will suddenly be yourself,and it's All to
Late...
And the one you hate,will suddenly be yourself,and it's All to
Late...
And the one you hate,will suddenly be yourself,and it's All to
Late...

Disruptive and bound to kill itself The face of earth will Turn
When you're crawling to the cross And your inner thoughts
Reveal themselves Grand failure anthem - you'll never see
What you've become we'll never get some well-earned
Respect cause we have...Failed!Failed!Failed!Ripped
Another spine til'the end of time Failed!Failed!Failed!
We're being flushed down the drain...

And the one you hate,will suddenly be yourself,and it's All to
Late...
And the one you hate,will suddenly be yourself,and it's All to
Late...
And the one you hate,will suddenly be yourself,and it's All to
Late...

So you have died,you pale face in the sky The rage is
Burning...burning my eyes I'm blind Grand failure anthem
We'll never see what we've become we'll never get some,
Well earned respect.......




9. FOLLOW THE HOLLOW

I fought the forces that will bring me down
They crawl without a sound
They wake me up at night, kill the lights, make it right
No time for slumber I'm getting dumber every sigh,
Every time I'm standing tall, every time I rise and fall

I think we're closer now, I'm getting nearer
I can see it touching ground, it's getting clearer
Can't you see I'm way behind, I'm so sincere
I believe you'll never find.

Wee out the sun, under the gun
Kneel down for the ricochet
My future tells no lies to a creature with o rights
As for the plans I have in mind I have nothing left to find
Please show a sign, who's next in line?

I think we're closer now, I'm getting nearer
I can see it touching ground, it's getting clearer
Can't you see I'm all denied faith fucked believer
I claim you'll never find a better fear

Take a look, take a ride, stay by my side
Don't dare to think-let's follow the hollow
It kills your pride to be alive
Please step a side, cause I follow the hollow!

We head for hell and we do it well, come eat the dust
Cause it's all a dirty lie that chokes the sky

I think we're closer now, I'm getting nearer
I can see it touching ground, it's getting clearer
Can't you see I'm way behind, I'm so sincere
I believe you'll never find a better fear

Take a look, take a ride, stay by my side
Don't dare to think-let's follow the hollow
It kills your pride to be alive
Please step a side, cause I follow the hollow!

I think we're closer now, I'm getting nearer
I can see it touching ground, it's getting clearer
Can't you see I'm all denied faith fucked believer
I claim you'll never find a better fear

Take a look, take a ride, stay by my side
Don't dare to think-let's follow the hollow
It kills your pride to be alive
Please step a side, cause I follow the hollow!




10. AS WE SPEAK

As we speak...
The stable table turns
As we speak...
I should have known we're burned
And I guess I'll never never learn which of those faces
Who makes it all turn
As we speak...
I'm going deeper down
As we speak...
With a terrible sound
A feeble holy bastard son
Has it only just begun?

I turn away.....fading out alone
Was a lifetime worth it all?
...Fading out...fading out alone
Ass we speak we turn to stone

As we speak...
A young man looses his mind
As we speak...
He kills what's next in line...
A broken down mother ask herself why
Is this the end of her precious time?
As we speak...
A conscience leaves without a trace
A silent departure to a silent place
What do we know about the anger that starts to grow

Don't despair, time will heal your torment
Don't you dare, spend your days in hell
So beware, faith will bring you treason
While you stare... Oh!

I turn away....fading out alone
Was a lifetime worth it all?
...Fading out...fading out alone
As we speak we turn to stone
As a lifetime turns to stone...




11. BLACK STAR DECEIVER

Black star, whenever you're ready
You're much too far away!
By now, your soul seems steady, now crawl to the cross

Meanwhile, time takes a turn
I'm feeling damned when you make it burn
Let's testify you're born to die
You speak the truth and so do I
Don't give it away
Don't try to nail

Black star whenever you're ready
You're much too far away!
By now, your soul seems steady, now crawl to the cross
Black star deceiver kills it all
The sun lies waiting for a call

You seem to be a fatal one
Come watch me preach under the gun
I'm down and out, so down and out!

Black star whenever you're ready
You're much too far away!
By now, your soul seem steady, now crawl to the cross

Black star deceiver kills it all
The sun lies waiting for a call

Take me away, I'm in distress
Oh grand deceiver, put me to rest
I was never in pain, sick or insane
So hear me now, you're the one that I blame!

Meanwhile time takes a turn
I'm feeling damned when you make it burn
Let's testify, you're born to die
You speak the truth and so do I
Don't give it away
Don't try to nail!

Black star whenever you're ready
You're much too far away!
By now, your soul seems steady, now crawl to the cross
Black star deceiver kills it all
The sun lies waiting for a call




12. REJECTION ROLE

I'm the result of an ageless redemption
A body with a heartless convention
A face with a smile that's been shut down for years
Facing the facts of my generation...cause
I'm a sinner, a winner, my blood is getting thinner
I might as well get another life cause I've been there
I know what's been said and I know what's been done
Don't you tell me I'm the only one, cause I...

I will be there looking for something
Coming straight out of nothing, just killing time
Facing those walls so black, so vile
I really am waiting for nothing
Coming straight out of something, just killing time
Facing those walls so black, so vile

Now put your trust in a solid machine
Filled with words that have never been seen
A plague to insatiable souls left to die
Charged with mankind's raw energy
I rumble, I stumble
My memory starts to crumble
I can't refuse what's haunting my dreams
Have I stumbled?
On my way to a created perfection
I penetrate the gates of rejection

There's no determination, echoes of a failed gallery
There's yet extermination, inside us all screaming




13. FIGURE NUMBER FIVE

Tell it to me now,
Close your eyes
'Cause they don't feel a fucking thing
You gotta memorize what you felt
When you lost your wings
Your line is mesmerized,
Condition's paralyzed
Your chance to live is emphasized
Nor a truth nor a lie

Burn your flag, figure
The disciples of God want you to die

Figure Number Five
Caught in the hands of a human lie
Figure, Figure Number Five
Give it up,
Never stop till he hits the ground
Figure Number Five
The fifth wheel in a cynical time
Figure, Figure Number Five
They won't stop, they won't stop
'Til he hits the ground

Their eyes are shut side by side
And you can't do a single thing
They will cease their time passing by
Sucking blood out of kings

It's such a drag,
I can't do nothing always there
I feel my welfare's burning...




14. LIGHT THE TORCH

Claiming he's an innocent soul
Son of a silent force
Under pressure but all so cold
I better light the torch
Cause he's able to do it again
Degrade and suffocate
Getting the useful support
From his passive friends

How can you just proceed
You little callous fuck
You just walk the streets
Like a not knowing breed

Give me a sign and I'll do just
What I'm thinking right away
How can she ever forget,
So suffer and start to regret
It will come around cause you know
That she'll be thinking of you...
I feel so powerless
Can't face my hollowness

You've had your time
Gonna walk that line
Like a living travesty,
Endlessly bound to your sins
I'll hunt you down in time
You're just a feeble swine
How can I compromise
When all you do is deny

This pain will last forever,
Never growing old
Nobody will ever answer,
How you can be so cold




15. STABBING THE DRAMA

My declaration hurts, just want to stab it right now!
Congratulations you've found yourself
Been preaching too many times to an histerycal mind
So won't you fucking behave yourself...
It's all in there, without despair
So you've saved your soul?
It always depends who will deliver
Have you ever known
Such a beautiful mind that gives you shelter

I'm waiting for something to show,
I might as well...
Just drag me down so low

I'm down the drain and I've got nothing to fear
With a polluted mind
I had my share of loosing
Don't you ever cross that line
So you've saved your soul?
It always depends who will deliver
Have you ever known
Such a beautiful mind that gives you shelter

Break the record, in a second, cherish you mental weapons
Watch the progress from an aspect that's stabbing the Drama inside...

I'm waiting for something to show,
I might as well...
Just drag me down so low
I'm waiting for something to show,
My punishment...
For being down so low
I can't believe how it used to be,
Selfish minds were abusing me
Self pity and determined to crawl
Manipulation of a merciful soul




16. ONE WITHE THE FLIES

Now I'm one with the flies
Rising up as the creature cries
Sucking up, breathing stops...
For the very last time!
Can you see it, can you reach it,
As it climbs the top of you spine
Such a healer, can't belive it
I'm left so far behind
Born to please, to release
Wide open and unredefined
Crashing down in a velvet hall,
Side by side
Narcotic-injected, erotic-respected
It suits your kind, cause you're one with the flies
Can you feel it, can you cease it
As it crawls to the top of your spine
Such a healer, self redeemer
I keep thinking that seems like it's not fair...

(Reach out) and choke with me reach out
Cause it's killing me...
Down! Bring down this sheer submission
Down! You know you have to bring it...
Down! Deranged from a mind pollution
Down! Pitch black but unrefined

Such a healer, i can't believe it
I keep thinking that seems like it's not fair...
(Reach out)and choke with me reach out
Cause it's killing me...
Down! Bring down this sheer submission
Down! You know you have to bring it...
Down! Deranged from a mind pollution
Down! Pitch black but unrefined

Deceiver, believer -Don't need you tonight
You've spilled enough blood, you've wasted my life...

You know you have to bring it...
Down! Bring down this sheer submission
Down! Deranged from a mind pollution
Down! And screw that common sense...
Down! Fight back those limitations
Down! And screw that common sense!




17. NERVE

Call it liberation or frustration,
As it hits like a bomb
Tearing you apart as you're first in line,
Entering the zone
Watch how it runs, a nervewrecking resistance
Watch how it burns, a venomous script's getting formed
You've travelled a long way to get here
And now it's waking you up....

Walk straight for a final solution
Walk straight, don't you be so cold
Walk straight with clear resolution
I'll state my case and make it turn

Watch how it runs, watch how it burns
And it's all a deception
Break it and learn, there's no return
For a presence like mine...
It's getting all clear now, all the things I know
An elapse of conscious progress will
My courageous insanity follows an infinite time
I'll be attaching the world
On my shoulders
Without a look
Inside

Walk straight for a final solution
Walk straight, don't you be so cold
Walk straight with clear resolution
I'll state my case and make it turn




18. SWORN TO A GREAT DIVIDE

'Cause I won't take what I give,
A sworn pattern within.
Not the last time, it keeps coming back.
Building knowledge, gaining strength.
A part of the Jekyll, a part of the Hyde.
Fear itself is bigger than the seed.
In clear resemblance to the mouths that I feed.

I'm sworn to a great divide, sworn to a great divide.
How will I turn when it beckons to me?
Can I turn myself from home?
Well it's time to decide, is that really the key.
All that matters, I can do this on my own...

So now the conflict is turning, towards the back of my Hand.
Inevitable, the disaster, comes quickly as it can.
Inevitable changes, inevitable crimes.
Considered a victim, a wide open file.
When the truth just hurts, you will confess, not deny.
Incinirate, illuminate, either way is just fine.
Truth shall set you free and I won't push it or let it be.
Master the puppet or cut off the strings.
Self indulgence, what a beautiful thing.

I'm sworn to a great divide, sworn to a bottomless tide.
How will I turn when it beckons me?
Can I turn myself from home?
Well it's time to decide, is that really the key.
All that matters, I can do this on my own...

I can feel it coming my way. Here it comes now, one, two, Three, go!

Sworn to a great divide, sworn to a great divide...
How will I turn when it beckons to me?
Can I turn myself from home?
Well it's time to decide, is that really the key.
All that matters, I can do this on my own...
I can do this on my own




19. EXILE (ORCHESTRAL MIX)

Please don't put it into words
'Cause I fear what you're thinking

It's gonna make it hurt
You better not try to make me
Believe in someone new

Faithless
On my way
Defenseless
From my heart, won't you be
Heartless
Here with me
Breathless
From this night's misery

This night will start the exile run

Now you tell me what it was worth
Was it meant to be broken?
The circle that wouldn't shed a single tear
And now you wanna redirect me
From the face of the earth
Not willing to share your time

Not near, not far
I'm just a spectator once loved
Just fear, just scars
A sheer introduction to what I've lost
To what I've lost

Faithless
On my way
Defenseless
From my heart, won't you be
Heartless
Here with me
Breathless
From this night's misery
(From this night's misery)

One more endless night
To notice all the things I have to be

Faithless
On my way
Won't forget
From my heart won't you be
Heartless
Here with me
Breathless
From this night's misery

This night will start the exile run
