1. GROANS OF THE ABYSS

Here the cold winds bring the plague
Slow anguish as a fate
Namtar saving us this painful curse
Surrupu disease is being broken out

When the looks changed by starvation
Our despair bearing bowed
Clogging the river like dragonflies
Our well-set shoulders slouched
Let the heralds proclaim
Let them make some noise in the land
Let's search out the door of Namtar
And stop praying

The story scrolls before my eyes
Salvation
Have I begun to understand

Thunder god holds back the rains
A flood to wipe us out
The darkness gains ground there is no sun
The winds howl
Let the heralds proclaim
Let them make some noise in the land
Let's search out the door of Namtar
And stop praying

The story scrolls before my eyes
Unrelenting
Images of what life could be
And this story reveals me what I am
Deception
Through violence my time I will spend

All was born from bedlam
All will become dust
Such is the will of the gods
All was born from bedlam
All will become dust
Such is the doom of mankind
One World, One Cycle, One Pain
One World, One Cycle, One Slave
All cycles make slaves

Here the cold winds bring the plague
Slow anguish as a fate
Namtar saving us this painful curse
Surrupu disease
Let the heralds proclaim
Let them make some noise in the land
Let's search out the door of Namtar
And stop praying

Story scrolls before my eyes
Unrelenting
Images of what life could be
Story scrolls before my eyes
Unrelenting
Images of what life could be

When the looks changed by starvation
Our despair bearing bowed
Clogging the river like dragonflies
Dragonflies




2. LORDS DECLINE

Aroused
By the features beauty
The addiction
Under the sign of lechery

Hey, every time you need a sign
Falling deep into the abyss of their hell

Aroused
By Father's blood
It runs in my veins
Symbol of my longevity

Elated
Offered to the ultimate orgasm
Desire supremacy
Impure in thoughts
Excited
By the power to judge
Arbitrary is my law

Ishtar, I invoke your enlightenment
I, glad slave to insane impulse
Filled puppet in the hands of passion
Let me walk in the path of lust

Give me strength not to control my senses
Satisfactory way to realize eternal bliss
Sex energy entirely feels my mind
Show me the way of lords decline
Give me strength not to control my senses
Satisfactory way to realize eternal bliss
Sex energy entirely feels my mind
Show me the way of lords decline




3. MISTRESS OF THE DAMNED SOULS

Black Earth, white mistress
Enter the Gates of Death
Out of the Lands we know
Where sleeps the sorrow
Bright Light of Nights
Out of the Gates of the Living
The Land of No Return
Where sins are dogma

The roots of decline around her
In extase, sitting on her throne
A vision of despair
Governing the underworld
Funeral rites in the realms of the dead
Virgins' purity abused

A vision of sadness
Governing the netherworld
Black Earth, white mistress
Enter the Gates of Death
Out of the Lands we know
Where sleeps the sorrow

Rejected like a leprous
The heart filled with rancor
A vision of hatred
Governing the underworld
Directing the wandering souls
Nourished by their frankness
A vision of revenge
Governing the netherworld

Out of the realms of living man
Beyond the lands out of your range
Enter the gates and see her reign
Mistress of the damned souls

Believing in forgiveness
But killed in cold blood
Hung with a hook on the wall
I'll look at them suffering
Believing
In forgiveness
But executed
In cold blood

Crawling like vermins
The vultures in the sky

Crawling like vermins
The vultures will gather in the sky
The smell of decomposition
Will embalm
Believing
In forgiveness
But executed
In cold blood

The roots of the decline around her
She directs the wandering souls
Funeral rites of the realm of the dead
Govern the underworld




4. LAMMA BADA

لما بدا يتثنى , لما بدا يتثنى
أمان أمان أمـــان
حبي جمالو فتنا
أمان أمان أمـــان
أومى بلحظ أسرنا
أومى بلحظ أسرنا
أمان أمان أمــان

غصن سبا حينما
أمان أمان أمان
وعدي و يا حيرتي
وعدي و يا حيرتي
مالي رحيم شكوتي
إلا مليك الجمال
إلا مليح الجمال

لما بدا يتثنى
لما بدا يتثنى
أمان أمان أمـــان
حبي جمالو فتنا
أمان أمان أمـــان




5. TIED FATES

Anu made his voice heard
I shall not rise to see them
Impossible to go down
Let my messenger come
Ascending the long stairway to heaven
Respectfully stand for greetings
Duty-bound to kneel down
All stand except him

Pretending not to realize
Summoned to be punished
Make amends for your insult
A throne of chair as an offering
Pretending
Not to realize
Summoned
To be punished

She comes to me through falling stars
An endless ray of light
Piercing the skies and diving deep into my heart

Die!
Impotent
Do you feel my disgust?
I state my threat
Tears will flow down your cheeks
Die!
Impotent
Do you feel my hatred?
The dead rise up
They will eat the living

Deprived of light
Where dust is food, clay is bread
Kissing the ground in front of me
I sit down on his throne
He catches a glimpse of my body
And couldn't resist temptation
Cowardly, he leaves me asleep
And return to the Heights Above

He wipes away the goddess' tears
For being such an emotional coward
Remain forever in the Land of No Return
To rule over it with me beside you




6. THE SEVEN GATES

To the dwelling of Erkalla's god
Daughter of Sin is determined to go
Enthralled, she harks unto the cries
And open her ears to the Great Below

Sparkling stones fastened to her breast
A gold ring around her wrist
If she won't return
A lament for her by the ruins

Over the door and the bolt, dust has settled
Go, Gatekeeper, let her in
Strip off and take away her crown
Such are the rites of the Mistress

Stripped of means and naked,
Helpless as the day she was born
Inanna turned into a green,
Decaying slab of meat

Escape
From the underworld
Decrease
In fertility on earth

God of wisdom, grieved and troubled
Great helper of humankind
Scrapes the dirt under your fingernails
Give'em the food and the water of life

8. CHAOS CYPHER

Beyond the suffering
Mother gave birth to hope
From this fearsome chaos
A new era was born

No destinies are determined
Icy waters paralyze
It was time for the currents to meet
The sea propagates some sharp cries

Impossible to find relief
My answer will be terrible
The field of vision obscured
Traitors kneel down admit my absolute power

Disturbed... Annoyed
Aweless
Under the reign of despotism
They delight with depravity
Disturbed... Annoyed
Aweless
Under the smell of oppression
They prepare the final treachery

This is my blood
But this clamor disturbs my serenity
This is my flesh
But this disorder questions my authority




9. DEFYING THE IDOLS

Trapped as a slave race
Kept in ignorance
Manipulated and oppressed
Bondage to the awareness

The "Grower of Truth"
Who brought "the power of the heart"
Witness of hidden truth
The one who gave the knowledge

Opposed to the harshly treatment
Teach the way to spiritual freedom
Spread of redemption
In harmony with all beings

Weapon of betrayal,
Knowledge is a two-edged sword
Tool of spiritual repression
A limited form of thinking

Obsessed by the will to enlighten them
Dissemination of wisdom
Seeking to release
From Custodial thralldom

Defy the idols

Opposed to the harshly treatment
Teach the way to spiritual freedom

Obsessed by the will to enlighten them
Dissemination of wisdom
Seeking to release
From Custodial thralldom
Spirit is the true source of
Awareness intelligence
Stamp cruelty into submission
By creating the brotherhood

11. NATIVE ORDER

No means of nourishment
We had depleted the storehouse
Enlil decrees infertility
Wombs are too tight
They reached the gate of warriors dwelling
A rabble is running around the door
Do you fear your own sons?
Every single one of us declared war

Embargo of all nature's gifts
Only weeds grew up
Impossible to perform our duties
Nature's bounty disappeared
Embargo of all nature's gifts
Only weeds grew up
Impossible to perform our duties
Nature's bounty disappeared

Betrayal
My trust is fading away
No time for mercy
No healing
Every traitor will perish
In Hell

Serve up a daughter for a meal
Serve up a son for food
Thirsty as were our lips
Discharged only the rime of famine
They reached the gate of warriors dwelling
A rabble is running around the door
Do you fear your own sons?
Every single one of us declared war

More bloodshed, more pain
Brutality of the slave system
Desperate live teetering
We have no alternative
Let us scream as loud as we could
There is no law and no order
The chaos we are living now:
Death and retribution

Crisis aggravated
No limits, no rules
A chronic pain
Rape our mind
Crisis aggravated
No limits, no rules
A beam of searing pain
Growing worse day by day

Putting aside our spades for fire
We mix fight with battle
An uprising in their own house
Every day the Earth thunders
