01. Serpent

The serpent crawled the way up from his underground hole
Bitter, unfulfilled, quite nasty and old
Wants everyone to drink his toast, the poisonous chalice
And we listen like hypnotized to the snake and his talk

You rise from the ashes to the beauty of grace and delight
I know deep inside it's done with mirrors and smoke
You fill my apartment with magic and treason, beware
I see your lizard eyes in every man, we must all take care

And the serpent said: Richness
I'll give it now to you
Just keep on what you're doing
To the devil his due
I'm everywhere, the great lord
I see every sin
No matter how you hide behind your doors
I will always sneak in

In every single corner of the world, yes there you are
You're spreading your feathers like a god, a true superstar
You fill my apartment with magic and treason, beware
I see your lizard eyes in every man, we must all take care

Bitter and fucked up and blue
You know the serpent is you
Spreading the poison you can
Venom's black in every man
Snake of Christ, you do us wrong
Oh serpent with a deadly tongue
Bitter and fucked up and blue
You know the serpent is you


02. Devil Sun

You showed me things, the secrets of your eye. The magic circle
That glows and shimmers always through the night
A promise spoken of wonders I could do. A chain unbroken
A road so straight, but only for a few

The sun was black, the day was dark as coal. Not unusual
I saw the hours as something I could throw away
But there I saw it, the writing's clear as ice. My soul was aching
Now I knew my home and where to go

Devil Sun -- Yes I like your way
Devil Sun -- I'll always be your slave
Devil Sun -- You got so much to say
Devil Sun -- You command, I obey

You showed me things, the secrets of your eye. The magic circle
That glows and shimmers always through the night
A promise spoken of wonders I could do. A chain unbroken
A road so straight, but only for a few

Do you know, that I like your craft?
And we shall go, you will lead the path
Do you see, I'm the newborn son?
And I praise, the god the Devil Sun


03. Sea Of Doom

Apocalyptic on Sundays I am
Before the altar of boredom I kneel
I plow an even deeper furrow
In grief's eternal wheel ....oh god

I sink faster into despair
And sorrow is my only reward
I can't hear music no more
Not a single black stupid chord

Swimming on a lazy afternoon
In a sea of doom

And I cry me a river of dying angels
And I try to be strong
I'm afraid of the sunshine that tries to reach me
Now it won't be long

The well of pain and gloom
The sea of doom

All those heartaches stole my world
The shit of a life time, should have been gold
I put the blinds down, go back to bed
The lair of numbness, the losers keep

I sink faster into despair
And sorrow is my only reward
I can't hear music no more
Not a single black stupid chord

Drowning on a lazy afternoon
In a sea of doom


04. Lex Lucifero

There's a dead man in my bed
Got no legs, got no head
Darkness lackeys underneath
Satan's offspring licks my knees

A ring of demons around my bed
Curse the life that I have lead

Something nasty's soiling my sheet
Spawn of evil at my feet
Horns and claws, rotten nose
Hell is sucking on my toes

A ring of demons around my bed
Curse the life that I have lead
As I fill my life with fear
I clearly see the end is near

Satan's smell is in my room
A place to sleep becomes a tomb
Demon voices speak as one
Hell is fire, shit and sand


05. Pirates Of The Black Hand

We come from the sewers to pirate this fat land this hour
We march in the streets of skulls to take back what ours
White thrash of the south

We shake the foundations of power with lead and with force
Burn the pillars of greed, let society fall
Rebel rousers, drunks and punks, and brave invaders

We plague the cities with fire, we are in control
Storm the bastions with metal and rock'n'roll
The oceans of oppression, the killing hand
The black flag of vengeance rise over our land

Anarchy warning, a note from the underworld
The pirates of the heart are sailing to steal and destroy
Rebel rousers, drunks and punks, and brave invaders


06. Depressive Strokes Of Indigo

So no one's nice enough to paint your face
With red or blue or black or white
A snapshot of your truer you
To show you what no mirror can do

I do it myself, but I don't like myself
But if anyone knows you know yourself
Can I come close enough to rescue me
I'm pretty sure what the colour will be

Will I stay sane, will I be framed?
Will I look cool, will I be ashamed?
Nightfall dark or morning bright?
I think I'll choose the colour of night

I paint me a picture, with depressive strokes
Selfportrayed in indigo
I paint me a picture, with depressive strokes so bold
Selfportrayed in indigo

Grey's the skin -- hanging eyes
Sick and thin -- not so nice
Uncut nails -- hair has died
Stressed and frail -- I look so tired

Here you are, discolouration
Can't believe that this is me
A bum and freak, abomination
Forget about all vanity

Canvas tales of seven sins
The fucking face of an evil twin
I look like horror, look like fear
Like I haven't slept for a hundred years

When I die -- when I am dead
Bury me -- when life has fled
In return -- I give to you
A little gift -- of black and blue
Sing a song -- party on
Have one on me -- drink and breathe
In the days -- that will pass
Remember me -- who I was


07. Too Close To Evil

We're on the road to hell
Down without brakes
Betrayal and cheaper lies
Whatever it takes

I play my evil games
And you, you play yours
A conspiring and spying witch
To win the cold war

Evil I do, Evil you see
My feelings are true
And more evil you will be

I burned down your soul
I killed all your needs
I hate all your flaws
But more evil you're to me

Together we reach the darkness
Too close to evil
Your hatred was vast and black
More evil than evil

You took me to hell and back
A nice little trip
Then showed me a soul to rip
Apart bit by bit

Evil I do, Evil you see
My feelings are true
And more evil you will be

I burned down your soul
I killed all your needs
I hate all your flaws
But more evil you're to me
