01. Misery's Dawn

Misery's Dawn

Do you believe in heaven or do you believe in pain?
A sanctuary built for the mischosen
Is it the final contradiction or just an irony of fate?
Doomed we are to drown in an empty ocean

In Misery's dawn...
Can't you see?

God's forgotten children struggle for their lives
While innocent convictors celebrate the knive
"I'll always be with you" - But I've never really been
On your way back to the gallows, destiny's fulfilled

Misery's dawn
Can't you see?
Misery's dawn

Together from a black sea of stars we shall arise
To fall down once more, failure in disguise
In tragedy's harvest the fruit's a bitter loss
They broke your wings and make you tumble down... at any cost

You burned me with your poisoned seed of doubt
Why do you want me to suffer?

Is this the day of heaven or is this the day of pain?
I closed my heart forever as the blade slowly opened your veins...

Misery's dawn
Can't you see?
This is my private misery


02. Fall Into Oblivion

Fall Into Oblivion

Downward the shores we pass
Clouds bathed in sombre twilight
Dust beneath our dragging feet
The crumbled shapes of your image

Left behind the dream of a time
That is fading away tirelessly
And paralysed we are
The light of old aged stars

We kissed the girls, we drank the wine
So why the hell not die
We cried out our songs to indifferent ears
So why the hell not die

... And fall into oblivion...
... And fall into oblivion...

When it comes to the dying season
Will you stay right at our side
When we leave this place together
Through the glens of the afterlife

At the shores of the tranquil sea
Waves take the land tirelessly
Take our thoughts away
To the light of old aged stars

Still in my mind

Only among the stars there lies freedom
Only among the stars there is eternity
Only for one short moment our lives do last
Until the memories are wasted away from the shores out of our galaxy

... And fall into oblivion...
... And fall into oblivion...


03. Kolyma

Kolyma

They pass me when I close my eyes
Ragged lines of ragged grey
Grey their faces, grey their hands
Grey the ghosts that haunt this land
Their pain, it echoes through the hills
Through no one living ever left

This is Kolyma - a graveyard for the lost

The muffled sounds of cries and moans
Od swearing, shooting and commands
They all disappeared in this big land
Where summer's harsh and winter kills
Where gold is hidden, death's for free
And freedom came from weapon steel

This is Kolyma - a graveyard for the lost

The forest conquered all the camps
Broke walls, cut fences down to earth
The forest conquered all the camps
Broke walls, cut fences down to earth

Land of gold and land of death, a graveyard for the lost
You gave the treasures, you tool the men, you'll keep them forever

(This is) Kolyma - a graveyard for the lost
(This is) Kolyma - a graveyard for the lost

The cold wind's crying for the lost
He knows the sites where they all lie
The wolves are howling in the woods
Howls like calling up the dead
I'd rather trust in ther fangs
Than mercy by man's hand

This is Kolyma - a graveyard for the lost

The cold wind's crying for the lost
The one who knows their names


04. Redemption

Redemption

Blessed are the fallen
Hearts full of grief
Blessed are the feeble
Who deny their own belief
I am stranded
Forgotten and forlon
A hangman buried by his fear
See the scarecrows laughing
By jesters mesmerized
Staring at me with cruel lies (eyes)

So bleed for me
To set me free... right now...
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done... forever...

Will you darken my bride (bright) sun?
Will you swallow your lost son?

Blessed are the fallen
Hearts full of grief
Blessed are the feeble
Who deny their own belief
So nail me to cross
Then break the seventh seal
Paradise regained by guilt
'Cause the child has grown up now
And innocence is gone
Forgiveness is not running through your vain (vein)

A spell has been cast on my fevered mind
To bind my mercy to the living
So bleed for me
To set me free
... Right now...


05. House Of The Rising Sun

House Of The Rising Sun

There is a house in New Orleans,
They call the "Rising Sun",
It's been the ruin of many a poor girl,
And me, I know, I'm one.

My mother is a tailor,
She sews those new blue jeans,
my husbend he's a gambling man,
drinks down in New Orleans.

My husbend in a gambler,
He goes from town to town,
The only time, he's satisfied, is when
He drinks his liquor down,
his liquor down!

Go tell my baby sister
Never do like I have done,
Shun that house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun!

One foot's on the platform,
The other on the train,
I'm going back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain,
that ball and chain!

Going back to New Orleans,
My race is almost run,
I'm going to spend the rest of my life
Beneath, Beneath that Rising Sun,
Beneath that Rising Sun,
that Rising Sun


06. The Eclipse Of The Seventh Sun

The Eclipse Of The Seventh Sun

[Instrumental]


07. Passion And Demise

Passion And Demise

The sweet draught of lick-her (liqour)
Runs gently over my tongue
A feast of wicked pleasure
Is the delight of sweat and blood

The seed of a lost morality
As you sow, so shall you reap
A beast of pray (prey) I am
Trapped in a human abattoir

Now we drift away
Into a proud act of violation
Flesh captures flesh
As we deluge in self-accusation

The seed of...

To copulate means to umiliate
And I tremble within your thighs
I devastate emotional ground
What I adore, I despise
I rape you soul and suck you out
'Til I look into frightened eyes
I'm a prisoner between your legs
In a vicious game of passion and demise

The sweet draught of...

Together we rise, divided we fall
Caressed by the inno-scent (innocent)
I praise the holy whore...

Passion and demise


08. Dies Irae (Grave New World)

Dies Irae (Grave New World)

As sirens screamed out in the darkness
And fire fell down from the sky
As we cowered again in the bunker
We all knew the reason why

As our houses lay in ruins
And our sons were shot side by side
As the devil danced upon the graveyard
We all knew who's to blame

"For I am not one of the cowards
For I'm neither mortal nor weak
For I am the one you have longed for
A new master-race forsee"

He that is without sin among you
Let him first cast a stone on you...
Joh. 8,1

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride
If leaders feed beggars, a nation of beggars will fight

Those you once seduced
Are now here to be crucified
The principle of a fool
Who's betrayed and sacrificed

And to the fire-ey'd maid of smoky war
All hot and bleeding will we offer them:
The mailed Mars shall on his altar sit,
Up to the ears in blood...
Shakespeare


09. Where No Shadows Fall

Where No Shadows Fall

In a plkce where no shadows fall
I will meet you again
Below the moon and the stars
Where it all began

Where no shadows fall
We will meet again
Where no shadows fall
Where it all began

We all feel the presence
Of our destiny draw near

In this place where no shadows fall
We will have to surrender to our fears
