01. For The Revolution

Music by A.Kokko
Lyrics by P.Kokko
To the mighty star, to all its people, to the mankind
And to all true believers
You have known your brother and your leader
You know he never bowed to the despots

The dark cloud wavering in the sky
Pushed forward with ill-willed wind
Underneath walks a man having a dream
Wants to teach us his own way to live
Forgiveness is the word that he spreads
Through the barrels of the guns he have made
Entire world he wants to obey
And more power for himself to take

What does he want from us? What is the reason?
To occupy and to conquer, in the name of freedom?
We don't need his principle in revolt we shall rise
Soon he will notice that no-one converts us

The protest marchers fill up all the streets
Soon will bleed in the hands of police
The peaceful riot dispersed by the fire
In our eyes burning bright we will fight
So my brother, reach out your hand
And receive the true meaning of faith
The seed of the war has been plant
Stand firm

For the Revolution
We rise, We die

Amber lights illuminate all guns blazing
I am the whip of God lashing you down
This land that yesterday leaked nectar
Now nothing but a battlefield opened wounds
bleeding

I can smell the gun oil in my hands
When I'm taking away empty shells
I can see someone falling down dead
So the game is about to begin
Our faith is our bedrock
We shall not give up till we drop
And we wonder, we cannot understand
The meaning

For the Revolution
We rise, We die


02. Dead Man's Shadow

Music by A.Kokko
Lyrics by P.Kokko
Tonight I'll see the line of thousand ghosts
Those once were alive behind my eyes
And I'm on the crossfire of my manic thoughts
Under the yoke of the hidden evil

Why did you follow my footsteps?
Why did you present yourself against me?

Now I have to run, I have to leave behind
The things I've done
Over the plains, over the mountain tops
Covered with snow, to the unknown, into the
Foreign lands there shall I go
But I know they're after me and it is my time to bleed

Those restless dreams keep on teasing
I can see your eyes just before you died
And the blood red scar between my shoulder blades
It is making me mad

Dead man's shadow wavering above me
Dead man's shadow a restless soul haunting me

Now I have to run, I have to leave behind
The things I've done
Over the plains, over the mountain tops
Covered with snow, to the unknown, into the
Foreign lands there shall I go
But I know they're after me and it is my time to bleed

Those restless dreams keep on teasing
I can see your eyes just before you died
And the blood red scar between my shoulder blades
It is making me mad

Dead man's shadow wavering above me
Dead man's shadow a restless soul haunting me


03. Holy Symphony Of War

Music by A.Kokko
Lyrics by P.Kokko
State of the world today
Nothing but the same
Violence and disgrace
And no-one to blame

A murder on a TV-screen
The adults playing their game
PlayStation controls children's lives
As they grow up they'll do the same

I sing - you sing - we all sing
Holy Symphony of War

Fearful thoughts hide in people's minds
Control those who can't deny
Under the patronage of steel
The great man is turning the wheel

Behind the scenery of abundance
No-one hates more than the poor
The scribe are spreading the word
Declare the peace in the name of war

I sing - you sing - we all sing
Holy Symphony of War


04. Wings Of Blackening

Music by A.Kokko, P.Kokko
Lyrics by P.Kokko
Hey Mr.Charles where are you now?
Knocking at the heaven's door
But there's no-one around?
Standing behind your theory
That a man comes from an ape?
Or can't you see all that God has created?

Antichrists among us, teasing you up
Material world god questioning your heart
Stand firm in you faith, remember to pray
Secret of life, leave it all to Christ

Master lead me, please, in thru your door
Pierce this willing ear just one more time
Please let me stay, I'll work like a slave
I will suffer, obey

Hey Mr.Adolf where are you now?
Trying to find the path to the light in vain?
Standing behind your theory of inequality?
Or can't you see all that God has created?

Demons of sin fly with the wings of blackening
Pulling faces at you

Hey Mr.Vladimir where are you now?
Standing behind your theory of ideology?
Where have gone all you ideas now?
Or can't you see all that God has created?

Demons of sin fly with the wings of blackening
Pulling faces at you


05. Ready For Salvation

Music & lyrics by P.Kokko
Desperate cry of a child
Who only wants to live
An innocent human being
Deprived of all his dreams

Painful faces of the others
Who once were the chosen
Innocent eyes of the child
Never going to see

The voice of crystal children
Of deaf ears it has fallen
And the preacher delivers a sermon
But who's ready for salvation

Remembrance behind the scene
Of unjustice and injustice
In the forsaken faces
Expression of frustration

The voice of crystal children
Of deaf ears it has fallen
And the preacher delivers a sermon
But who's ready for salvation


06. Towards The Sky

Music & lyrics by P.Kokko
Time crawls and time flies
Seasons wave when they're passing by
I'm walking along the shore
Wondering is this true or dream?

Now when world is covered with blood
Everything is filled with nothingness
The smoke has covered the sky
And the scene is filled with blackness

Production spitting shit
Into this God's gift
Consequences are taking us
We don't care future is here

The energy policy is just a word
Just a tool in a political battle
Time is right but who has got he key
That'll open the sky for the sun to gleam

Warnings and threats fall on deaf ears
Wilderness screams, it cries for help
And from his throne God is watching
The world with empty eyes

Up towards the sky
I send me prayer and
I want her to survive
But without the light she dies

And the cancer is wasting her lungs
I can feel that but I still stay hopeless
And the smoke in the sky won't dispel
And God is too busy to give a damn

Warnings and threats fall on deaf ears
Wilderness screams, it cries for help
And from his throne God is watching
The world with empty eyes

Up towards the sky
I send me prayer and
I want her to survive
But without the light she dies


07. Outremer

Music by M.Sneck
Lyrics by P.Kokko
Outremer overseas
The kingdom of Christianity
The crusaders in their holy war
Fighting for their temple lords

For the crown or for the ring
Deus Vult! Shall they shout
Three points of view nothing else to do
But submit or rule

Outremer overseas
Religious game played by the kings
Prosperity or arrogance
The reasons for hypocrisy

For the crown or for the ring
Deus Vult! Shall they shout
Three points of view nothing else to do
But submit or rule

Jerusalem - the powder keg
Lying at our Fathers feet
The inferior holding the light
That shall burn the sky

We are the fuse we are the fuel
What can we do to stop the fire?
The answer will be found from our brains
Not from the books or from the tales

Jerusalem - the powder keg
Lying at our Fathers feet
The inferior holding the light
That shall burn the sky


08. Coward

Music by A.Kokko, P.Kokko
Lyrics by P.Kokko
Oh dear mother why did you give me a birth
I didn't ask to be born
Oh dear father can't you see what you've done
I'm not the one you wanted me to become

A coward I am and a good-for-nothing
Still I can walk over you
When my head is down and I'm in distress
Moonshine is my gentle mistress

A drunkard I am and a yokel, too
Still I can walk over you
My hand is poor and I have to bluff
But cheating to win is not even enough

Walking alone, testing the water
Hiding skeletons in my closet

A coward, a drunkard, a withdrawn, a stranger

What the hell
I feel no shame
What the hell
I fell no shame

So dear mother why did you give me a birth
I didn't ask to be born
So dear father can't you see what you've done
I'm not the one you wanted me to become

Walking alone, testing the water
Hiding skeletons in my closet

A coward, a drunkard, a withdrawn, a stranger


09. Like A Slave

Music by A.Kokko, Lede
Lyrics by P.Kokko
A sheet of paper wet by your sweat
Among the others scattered on your desk
Unstable market just can't wait
You moral is now at stake

And you know behind the closed doors
They're watching you
What is your real share?
Are you the one they want to fill
up their pockets?
Or are you simply worth nothing?

Smile, obey, behave, educate
Do what they tell you to do
Like a slave - Hiiohei!

Meanwhile I'm drilling a hole
Through the ice
Surrounded by white infinity
You're keep on rolling in your tread wheel
My friend, why don't you just follow me?

And you know behind the closed doors
They're watching you
What is your real share?
Are you the one they want to fill
up their pockets?
Or are you simply worth nothing?

Smile, obey, behave, educate
Do what they tell you to do
Like a slave - Hiiohei!
