Lyrics


1. WE ARE THE MANY

"You’ve gotta be fucking kidding me!?"

We are, we are one voice – one heart !
We are, we are one voice – one heart !

You sound like a broken record, different words for the same old lies
You know we'll be the ones who suffer, you gain power while we pay the price
Every time you open your mouth, you spread a disease
You try to make us voiceless, you try to make us believe

We are the many, like drops of water
Alone we are nothing, together we are crushing
We are the many, like a plague of locusts
Alone we are nothing, together we are crushing
We are the many
Alone we are nothing, together we're crushing
We are the many
Alone we are nothing, together we're crushing
We are, we are one voice – one heart !

Any disaster is very welcome
In the darkest days you promise the sun
Like the savior of a world in debris ?
Yeah right, you've gotta be fucking kidding me !

We are the many, like drops of water
Alone we are nothing, together we are crushing
We are the many, like a plague of locusts
Alone we are nothing, together we are crushing
We are the many
Alone we are nothing, together we're crushing
We are the many
Alone we are nothing, together we're crushing
We are, we are one voice – one heart !




2. THE BOGEYMAN

The bogeyman is waiting in the shadows of your dreams
You're afraid to fall asleep. You're awake 'til you‘re too weak
Come sweetie come it's bogey time, let me in and you'll be mine

This pain I bottled up inside
This pain you'll never know
This pain that's accusing you
My scars don’t even begin to show

Your soul is broken and can never be mend
You are trapped in a silent cage
(Come sweetie, come)
Come sweetie come it's bogey time, let me in and you'll be mine
Run sweetie run, cry and fade, this will be your last serenade
Run. Cry. Fight. Die !

This pain I bottled up inside
This pain you'll never know
This pain that's accusing you
My scars don't even begin to show

Here comes the bogeyman
Here comes the bogeyman penetrates your dreams
Here comes the bogeyman - Taking white, giving red




3. MEMORIAL

This is a memorial to honor the long gone
This is a burial, my heaven has gone wrong
Those times we had so long ago
Like yesterday – I miss 'em so much
I can't let go !

My heart is full of hate – it's bleeding love
Father – I have to say goodbye to keep my self alive

I can still see you
You're fading away but...
I can still feel you
Though you're drifting away from me
Away from me (you're drifting away)

This is a memorial to honor the long gone
This is a burial, my heaven has gone wrong
Are you still here – still in this place ?
What’s left behind, where is god’s grace ?
You broke my faith

My heart is full of hate – it's bleeding love
Father – I have to say goodbye to keep my self alive

I can still see you
You're fading away but...
I can still feel you
Though you're drifting away from me
Away from me (you're drifting away)

My heart is aching, that's all I know
Hope is fading, I'll let you go
My heart is aching, that's all I know
Hope is fading, I'll let you go

This is a memorial ! This is a burial !
This is a memorial ! This is a burial !

I can still see you
You're fading away but...
I can still feel you
Though you're drifting away from me
Away from me (you're drifting away)




4. NO TOMORROW

Write down a story I'd rather forget
Won't mend the heart that's shattered and shred
Lord knows we tried, lord knows we failed
Mistrustful feelings slowly prevailed

We fade and fade from kiss to kiss with everything that lovely is
We've both grown cold from fight to fight until our love has died

All my dreams are far away
You took my life and gave me Hell
Give me back my yesterday
Or should I finally bid farewell

Never give all the heart for love
No effort's ever good enough
Highs result in lowest lows
We disavow 'til it clearly shows

A bad hand dealt, too blind with trust
Gave you my all, 'til all was lost
There ain't no rose without a thorn
Our love could grow and be reborn

And when you walk away
Then walk away my dear
But when you turn around
I won't be standing here

No tomorrow
No tomorrow

All my dreams are far away
You took my life and gave me Hell
Give me back my yesterday
Or should I finally bid farewell
All my dreams are far away
You took my life and gave me Hell
Give me back my yesterday
Or should I finally bid farewell

No tomorrow




5. EDGE OF BLACK

Black gold, black gold - Our souls been sold
It drips down our throats, fills up our lungs
We can barely breath, can't spread our wings

Golden horizon burst in flames
Burning despair again and again
Golden horizon - so bright but it's fading - burst in flames
Eternal return we are waiting and waiting again and again and again

We know but we'll never change it's true
That's what we became : standing at the edge
We'll never change, we'll never change

Edge of black

Like a king with a rusty crown – Like a saint on its way down
To the deepest ocean floor – Forever more
Black gold, black gold - Our souls been sold
We all know the truth but we'll never change
A shadow of a saint – That's what we became

Golden horizon - so bright but it's fading - burst in flames
Eternal return we are waiting and waiting again and again and again

We know but we'll never change it's true
That's what we became : standing at the edge
We'll never change, we'll never change

Edge of black

The destroying angel shall arise to give salvation to a world of lies
We will drown in an ocean of black and we all deserve it no way back

We know but we'll never change it's true
That's what we became : standing at the edge
We'll never change, we'll never change

Edge of black




6. DAVY JONES

I'm not going down that road again
You will drown by your self again
In your ocean of made up lies
Rising water slowly shuts your eyes

The waves are coming in, they washing you away, they leaving you astray

I can be your anchor no more

I'm not going down that road again
You will drown in the crimson rain
A flooded soul, a cold embrace
Davy Jones's locker 'til the end of days

The waves are coming in, they washing you away, they leaving you astray

I'm so sorry 'cause I'm not sorry

The waves are coming in, they washing you away, they leaving you astray

Get lost, get the fuck away from me !
Get lost, get the fuck away !




7. DEADLY DREAM

Blood for blood
Heart for heart
Woke up in this dream an ugly world unseen
Unleash the beast in me, takin' a walk on Elm Street
I sing you a lullaby in which your fears come to life
A good place to die, no chance to survive
Eye for an eye, a feast of sacrifice
I'm the shadow, I am the light
No place to run, no place to hide
Blood pours from the sky – We're dancing in the rain
A pandemonium, a symphony in pain

I am your demise
You're my sacrifice

I am the shadow, I am the light
You're my sacrifice
I am the shadow, I am the light
I'm your demise

Who I am ? I am you !

Those who enter here will forever disappear
In the darkest night I whispered in your ear
You will be mine 'cause it's high time
Carnage, chaos, endless pain will drive you insane
I am Nemesis, I give you death
Now you belong to me, die in agony
Greetings from Hell, these are my dying words
Every time I kill, I hope to end this curse

I am the shadow, I am the light
You're my sacrifice
I am the shadow, I am the light
I'm your demise

Killing you is killing me
Am I awake or still asleep ?
Don't wake me up, don't make this real




8. OPEN LETTER

Corporate cunts and pencil pushers
Prostitute your mind for cash
This way of live, it made me suffer
Trade your given time for trash
You all work jobs you badly hate
To keep the bills at pay
For shit you bought but you don't need
What self-deceptive way !

Right from the cradle straight to the grave
They want to tell us how to behave
Right from the cradle straight to the end
They want to force us to pretend

An open letter to you all
Your greed will take it's toll
We're with our backs against the wall
But it's only built to fall

You tell me dreams are made to fail
Like there is no escape
Prepared to walk the longest trail
Away from mental rape
Intimidate me with your lies
I'm paying any price
And when I come to say goodbye
Can't look me in the eye

Right from the cradle straight to the grave
They want to tell us how to behave
Right from the cradle straight to the end
They want to force us to pretend

An open letter to you all
Your greed will take it's toll
We're with our backs against the wall
But it's only built to fall

But I chose not to live like that
I'm fighting my way back

An open letter to you all...
An open letter to you all
Your greed will take it's toll
An open letter to you all...
An open letter to you all
Your greed will take it's toll
We're with our backs against the wall
But it's only built to fall




9. DEIN R3.ICH

Hatred inside, so close to ignite

But what you hate is a reflection
A reflection of the love denied
And what you love is denial
Denial makes this love a lie

Afraid to escape to break your fate
Open this gate before it's too late

Take a look in the mirror - What you see is a broken smile
Caught in a world of false believes in a prison where all hope will die

Ich bin der Dämon ! Zeig' nicht mein Gesicht!
Erkennst Du mich ? Erkennst Du mich nicht ?
Ich bin der Dämon ! Durchbreche das Licht !
Ich bin Du, Du bist ich, Los wirst Du mich nicht !

Du wirst mich nicht los...

Now that I can see you, I let you go
Du wirst mich nicht los
Now that I can hear you, I let you go
Wir sind eins!

Ich sehe Dich
Ich erkenne mich

Ich bin der Dämon ! Zeig nicht mein Gesicht !
Erkennst Du mich ? Erkennst Du mich nicht ?
Ich bin der Dämon ! Durchbreche das Licht !
Ich bin Du, Du bist ich, Los wirst Du mich nicht !
Du mein Dämon ! Ich erkenne Dich !
Du warst die Hoffnung, Du warst das Licht
Du mein Dämon ! Ich erkenne Dich !
Ich zerstör dein Reich
Unsere Bande bricht




10. BROADCAST TO DAMNATION

Changing channels, watching the drama
Sit and fade while loosing your karma
Day by day they feed your brain
Lay your thoughts in hidden dreams
Those who watch or those who serve
I guess we get what we deserve

Spineless and faceless, go fuck yourself – Don't ask why
Heartless and breathless, go fuck yourself – You know why
Pointless & senseless, go fuck yourself – Don't ask why
Aimless & faithless, go fuck yourself – You know why

It's killing me – This war in my head
It's killing me - I can't break free
It's killing me, this war in my head
We can't break free

Consume the light, consume the lie
Forget the world, forget your life
I cast a spell on you and everybody else
Who doesn't give a shit for someone else
The world around you is an ugly place
You're not gonna die with a smile on your face

Illness and sickness, go fuck yourself
Dullness and darkness, go fuck yourself

The virus is out and there is no escape
A silent killer is on his way
The virus is out to choke your brain
A silent killer is after you – It's all in vain !

It's all in vain !

It's killing me – This war in my head
It's killing me - I can't break free
It's killing me, this war in my head
We can't break free

I don't wanna know about your madness
I don't wanna know about your low life existence
Broadcast to damnation
Broadcast to damnation




11. THIS OATH

Remember the time I burned all bridges to you
It still breaks my heart in two
How can I gain your trust again ?
How can I make you believe again ?

My heart beats just for you, I'll never let you go
Take this oath : I love you
My heart beats just for you, I'll never let you go
Take this oath : everything is just for you

Which words are strong enough to make us rise from ashes
Forgiven is not forgotten
I want to be with you for now and forever
But forever is not even quiet enough

Be my haven, be my anchor, be my guiding light and lead us home
My heart is close to burst
My horizon is on fire and the sky turns blue to grey
Take my heart and save my soul

My heart beats just for you, I'll never let you go
Take this oath : I love you
My heart beats just for you, I'll never let you go
Take this oath : everything is just for you




12. MODERN WARFARE

Welcome... to war !

Everybody knows you and everybody told you
That nobody needs you and nobody cares
Everybody is at war with their fingers on the board
What's real ? What’s in your head ?
You release your poison to the world
This is the modern plague

Welcome to war ! You can't escape !

If this is real, I'd rather go blind
Then have this world pulled over my eyes
'Cause in the end it's all in my mind
And you're the one who's left behind

Everybody knows you and everybody told you
That nobody needs you and nobody cares
Everybody is caught in a world of make believe
Get a life – This is not real
We allow our-self's to be deceived
A virus, no one could heal

Welcome to war ! You can't escape !

If this is real, I'd rather go blind
Then have this world pulled over my eyes
'Cause in the end it's all in my mind
And you're the one who's left behind

Welcome to war ! You can't escape !

If this is real, I'd rather go blind
Then have this world pulled over my eyes
'Cause in the end it's all in my mind
And you're the one who's left behind

F Y I
Don't care if you fucking die
