The Court of Eternity tracks

Lyrics

1. THE CRUSADE OF LIES

Cold and empty, torn and twisted
Freezing blood inside our veins
A haze of sadness
The eyes of madness
Staring at us on our saintly campaign
The saintly campaign
This is the crusade of lies
It goes where the truth always hides away
And all the prophets we see
They are just crucified hypocrites
The crusade of lies has blinded our eyes
The isolation of a cabled world
Postcard snapshots of our world of hurt
We need bodystimulation
From the cyber world
I can't stand it anymore I won't see it anymore
I run away and slam the door
I slam the door

Cause this is the crusade of lies
It goes where the truth always hides away
And all the prophets we see
They are just crucified hypocrites
The crusade of lies has blinded our eyes

Our eyes Dump and blinded, hopelessly united
We can't escape our golden cage
Bound and beaten like brainwashed creatures
Their lies becoming our truth

This is the crusade of lies
It goes where the truth always hides away
And all the prophets we see
They are just crucified hypocrites
The crusade of lies has blinded our eyes
This is the crusade of lies
It goes where the truth always hides away
And all the prophets we see
They are just crucified hypocrites
The crusade of lies has blinded our eyes
Our eyes




2. NATURE'S REVENGE

Storm clouds gather
In the darkened sky
Thunder and lightening preparing to strike
It seems the old nature's gods have decided
To attack
They've been forgotten
But now they strike back

Is this natures revenge? Or is it just heavy weather?
Is it natures revenge? Or even the apocalypse?

We've raped the land
We've intoxicated the sea
We've polluted the air
We've decimated the green
We have lost touch with our big mother earth
We've forgotten the old natures gods
And now we get what we deserve
Temperatures are rising higher
Dry wood burns like hell fire
Glacial ice is melting
The big flood is coming
It is coming

It is natures revenge
It is no heavy weather
It is natures revenge
It is the apocalypse

2000 years of abuse and destruction
Now we pay the price
We'll be swept away
By the powers of nature nothing remains

Is it natures revenge?
Or is it just heavy weather?
Is it natures revenge?
It is natures revenge
It is no heavy weather
It is natures revenge




3. FEVER DREAM

I am caught in a space of heat and sweat
Traces of memories exploding in my head
I don't know where I am
And why I scream
Is this all reality or is it just a dream
In this horror fiction of never ending fear
I only wish to wake again
I am lost in fever dream
I see corpses buried deep
In a fever dream

Fever
The glowing heat is in my veins
I feel so strange spirals in my head
Afraid of death I start to plead
Someone help me
In this fever picture I am too close to death
This burning heat may guide me
To my last breath
I am lost in fever dream
I see corpses buried deep
In a fever dream

Fever
I am lost in fever dream
I see corpses buried deep
In a fever dream...




4. ROOM ELEVEN

Blinded by white light
I'm stumbling through an empty corridor
With cold walls and sterile smelling air
Where am I?
Is this just a bad acid trip?
While crawling forward I'm surrounded by screams
Coming from this big white door
I haven't seen before

Room eleven what is there inside?
Doom or an exit what will I find?
Room eleven I'm dazed by the light
Am I in heaven but I'm feeling alive

There is no handle to open
This heavy door
Panic and fear are creeping up my spine
What am I doing here?
And why is no one here

Room eleven what is there inside?
Doom or an exit what will I find?
Room eleven I'm dared by the light
Am I in heaven but I'm feeling alive

My eyes dried out by cold neon light
These horror screams blow my mind
Room eleven what is there inside?
Doom or an exit what will I find?
Room eleven I'm dazed by the light
Am I in heaven but I'm feeling alive
I'm sure I was within this frightening room
Fixed to a bed they deranged my brain
And I've gone insane




5. DON'T CLOSE YOUR EYES

Open your eyes and realise
Life isn't what it seems to be
Open your ears and hear
Promises are just hollow words
Open your mind to understand
Your own advantage is your only friend

Don't close your eyes
Don't shut your ears
Don't close your eyes
Don't ignore your heart or you won't live

Hate, aggression and war
Are waiting behind each door
Terror, torture and hurt
Are all lessons you haven't learnt
Open your heart to feel
Love is not reality

Don't close your eyes
Don't shut your ears
Don't close your eyes
Don't ignore your heart
Or you won't live
Don't close your eyes
Don't shut your ears
Don't oppress your mind
Don't ignore your heart
Or you won't live
Don't close your eyes
Don't shut your ears
Don't oppress your mind
Don't ignore your heart
Or you won't live...




6. THE COURT OF ETERNITY

am the dark inside you
I am the one who guides you
I know each filthy secret
I know you are my man
I help you find the way
I let you see another day
I live inside your brain
I'm also pumping through your veins

I'll take you by the hand
We'll be drifting to a space
Where the light is gone forevermore
The time will come to understand
That your last groan is close at hand
The flash will die the soul lives on
Day by day you're fading away
Day by day you're fading away

Your blood is pumping faster
Cause you got a disease
Your skin begins to boil
You fall down on your knees
Your blood is pumping faster
Cause you got a disease
You can hardly take a breath he devil's sitting on your neck
I know you are afraid to die
But I can't find the reasons why

I'll take you by the hand
We'll be drifting to a space
Where the light is gone forevermore
The time will come to understand
That your last groan is close at hand
The flash will die the soul lives on
Day by day you're fading away
Day by day you're fading away

Deep within the dark
You will find a spark
That lights you through the void
You will find a deep tranquillity within
Then you will justify
The deeds you did
The way you've lived
The court of eternity
Will pronounce a verdict
You may be reborn
Or you'll come with me

I'll take you by the hand
We'll be drifting to a space
Where the light is gone forevermore
The time will come to understand
That your last groan is close at hand
The flash will die the soul lives on
Day by day you're fading away
Day by day you're fading away

The court of eternity
Will pronounce a verdict
The court of eternity

I'll take you by the hand
We'll be drifting to a space
Where the light is gone forevermore
The time will come to understand
That your last groan is close at hand
The flash will die the soul lives on
Day by day you're fading away
Day by day you're fading away




7. MIRROR MAN

I sit alone in my chamber
I sit and stare into the void
And feel alone
There is just one ray in my chamber
A big old mirror on the wall
Or a secret gate to the unknown
I must leave the coldness
Of this world behind I have to hide away
Where I can't be found

I am hypnotized by the mirror's shine
I am hypnotized by the mirror man
Show me the way to you
I watch myself in the mirror
A big pale man is all that I see Is it me?
I focus on my own pupils
A silver frame is all that I see I disappear
I'm flying through quick silver
With the speed of thoughts
I am within the mirror
In a timeless world

I am hypnotized by the silver shine
I am hypnotized by the mirror man
Show me the way to you

Nobody just the mind in this place of light
This place of light, a place of light
To observe the world from behind the mirror

In this place of light
Just quick silver shine
I see the world like nobody can
No ticking time Time

I come back to my mirror
And I wonder what if I'm still sitting still there
But the only thing I see is an old chair
Not me
It's the only thing
You see
There are many places
The eyes cannot see
An immaterial world
Where I can be free

I am hypnotized by the mirror's shine
I am hypnotized by the mirror man
The eternal mind is reality
But it's hard to find what the eyes can't see
I am hypnotized by the mirror's shine
I am hypnotized by the mirror man
I have seen the mirror man
I became the mirror man

You see a man in the mirror
Is it you
Or is it me?




8. DARK DESIRE

I live an ordinary life they say
But behind the disguise I am a broken man
My desires are deviant I fell in love with a girl too young for me
I can't stand this immoral desire
I fall to my knees and pray
To the never bending light I plead
The light that takes my sins away
My dark desire Is burning like a glowing nail
If I can't withstand your soul will burn in hell

I can't stop thinking about that girl
And when I see her grace
My blood begins to boil
My only wish is get in touch with her
But I know this cannot be
I chastise my sinful flash
In tears I pray
To the never bending light I plead
The light that takes my sins away
My dark desire Is burning like a glowing nail
If I can't withstand
My soul will burn in hell
My dark, dark desire
Controls my body and my brain
My dark, dark desire God ease my pain
I cannot speak with anyone
No one will understand
Why I can't underfeed my abnormal needs
I am hunted by desire
A sinner in need of the holy ghost
Is suicide the only way
At last I pray
To the never bending light I plead
The light that takes my sins away
My dark desire Is burning like a glowing nail
If I can't withstand
My soul will burn in hell
My dark, dark desire
Controls the body and the brain
My dark, dark desire
God ease my pain




9. THE FINAL HOUR

Heavy breathing i«m waiting for the dawn
It will start soon what has once begun
I've reached the end of my long life

Slowly breathing wrapped up in my bed
My body is aching
'Cause my bones are much too old

When will i see the other side?
Where will i be? what will i feel?
When will i reach the final hour?

I close my eyes and memories appear
I see my childhood and i see my youth
The first time i fell in love
While looking back i know i«ve failed
Never before have i seen my life this way

All my arrogance and pride
My promises and lies
I have to feel i have to see
All the friends i have betrayed
All the girls i«ve thrown away
I am ashamed, i feel ashamed
I've never tried to find the way

I've never said the word i should say
Now i'm alone i am so alone
I am afraid of the cold
Now i am alone
I am so alone
I'm falling
The review is over
I'm sorrounded by the void
I hear myself breathing
It's so quiet in the dark

Now i am on the other side
Why can i feel? is it all real
Now i have passed the final hour
Yes i have passed the final hour




10. THE FOOL III (ONLY BLOOD MAKES ME SANE)

The deadly alliance
The knife and the silence
Have fled the asylum
To continue what shall be done

His childhood memories flash through my mind
I see the cause
For his shattered life

His daddy was a childrapist
His mother the first woman he'd ever kissed
Real motherlove he'd always missed
Daily beaten by fathers fist
His moral decayed his love was betrayed
Aggressions have grown childhood has gone

Darkness surrounding
My erased mind
Hunted by memories
That aren't mine

The first girl with thirteen
Was not satisfying
He couldn't give her love
So he slashed her up

Her buried corpse couldnot be found
He dug her deep in holy ground

He didn't know what he'd done wrong
The need to kill was much to strong

At home he stayed the beaten child
At night warm blood was his delight

Like flash decays
Like love betrays
How the strong wins
That deep is the sin

Darkness surrounding
My erased mind
Hunted by feelings
That aren't mine
Only blood makes me sane
Am I an actor in a horror play
Only blood makes me sane

I creep at night through nocturnal streets
The weight of guilt is on my feet
I look for a girl of the paid kind
The steel in my hand makes me feel
Like a real man

Darkness is guiding
My disturbed mind
Forced by the need
To end a life
Only blood makes me sane
I am an actor in a horror play
Only blood makes me sane

I will keep the blossom
From fading away

Show me your fear
Please beg for your life
I'm not in control of what I'm doing here
I'm just a slave to the knife
It's changed my mind

A complete loss of will
I feel the thrill of the kill
The knife is coming down
Red blood spills around
I fell it's warm embrace
I see the grace of death
My soul's soaked in red

Darkness surrounding
My disturbed mind
Forced by the need
To end your life
Only blood makes me sane
I am an actor in a horror play
Only blood makes me sane
Only blood makes me sane
Only blood makes me sane
Only blood makes me
Only blood makes me
Only blood makes me sane
