01. Hell Is Where The Heart Is

Music by Dan Swanö
Lyrics by Jonas Larsson
In the strangest world of formlessness
I am reaching out to expand my mind
No more echoes and reflections
The future is now
I am the first in line
[2.]
Because I am alone
Here with my fantasies
Inside my cocoon
A self-constructed galaxy
[C.]
And hell is where the heart is
But I'll never understand
The fact that I am
And hell is where the heart is
I have lost the concept of life
Is there another to find
[4.]
Gotta ticket with
a microsynthetic design
For chemical dreams
To fill up the dead spot
in the bottom of my eyes
and welcome the big sleep
[5.]
Injected with silence
Fading in a sleepy confusion
A beautiful entrance
Into a higher dimension
[Repeat C.]
[6.]
I was about to explore
The Exit
The Door
Out of my labyrinth
A mind-detonation
The easy solution
Out of my labyrinth
[7.]
Between midnight and twilight
I leave my shell
To enter the dream-light
The final farewell
[Repeat 1.]
[Repeat 2.]
[Repeat C. (X2)]
[Repeat 7.]


02. Helter Skelter

Music by Andreas Axelson/Benny Larsson
Lyrics by Andreas Axelson
[1.]
Awakening
All victims gathered One happy family
"I am your father"
"I am your friend"
"And you are my children and
shall be to the end"
On the verge of insanity
Manipulated
Blind they follow his every command
Stimulated by fluids and dust
And the love of a madman
Never ever rusts
[2.]
Go now my children
There is work to be done
The pigs must be slaughtered
Our battle's begun
Leave them a message that
They never seen
Helter Skelter
Anarchy Supreme
[3.]
Washing her hands from the
Blood she has spilled
Stabbing her to death for her father
Through the hands of his children
He murdered them all
Without even lifting his finger
No powers are needed when
Leading the blind
But powers are needed to kill
A mastermind with intentions for chaos
Carnage
He murdered through will
[Repeat 2]
[4.]
No powers are needed when
Leading the blind
But powers are needed to kill
A mastermind with intentions for chaos
Carnage
He murdered through will
On the verge of insanity
Manipulated
Blind they follow his every command
Stimulated by fluids and dust
And the love of a madman
Never ever rusts
Never ever rusts

Peace Love Murder


03. 15:36

Music by Dan Swanö
Lyrics by Anders Jakobson
[1.]
Let me invite you to my nether-world
I'll show you sights you've never seen
You still my hunger
You're an easy prey
Your flesh is ripe
Your mind is weak
[2.]
And dark is the path where I'll be your guide
and there is no turning back
Don't you try to run
Because you're in my grip
And your soul now fades to black
[C.]
I am the one who will leave you behind
When I have used all of your mind
I am your incarnated fear
I have no soul
I am cold in my heart
I will always haunt you down
When you're dead you'll dream of me
[3.]
Let me invite you to the other side
Feel the presence of the dark
You scream and cry as I show you my world
Then I crawl into your mind
[4.]
I am the dream you have when you're all alone
I am everything you fear
I am the one who'll make you loose your mind
As the end draws near
[Repeat C.]
[5.]
And now... your time has come
Let me have your fading soul
Restless eyes watching you
I am crawling all around you
Face the darkness in my touch
[Repeat C.]


04. The Bleakness Of It All

Music by Andreas Axelson/Benny Larsson
Lyrics by Andreas Axelson
[1.]
Sunrise burning holes in this dead earth
No chance to live
No chance of rebirth
The rain shall fall as the sun still burn
Uncoloured rainbow
Grey
[2.]
Slay your soul
Led astray
The inferno will not end this way
Burning black
Stars will crack
The world you know will change today
[C.]
Running waters
The boiling rivers of desert lands
World lies slaughtered
This earth chose its own suicide
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Our weakness made us fall
It wasn't even our call
Do you see the bleakness of it all
The bleakness of it all
[3.]
Strangulation
The death of a planet
When the world chokes itself we will die with it
There is no escape from total extermination
Nail by nail
Grind them in
Your coffin closed
The air grows thin
Useless fight
Got no chance
When sickness rages
It's sure to win
[Repeat C.]
[Repeat C.]
The bleakness of it all [X6]


05. Damned (By The Damned)

Music by Andreas Axelson/Benny Larsson
Lyrics by Andreas Axelson
[1.]
Deathdefying son of god
Twice you died in vain
No stronger than mortal
That made you re-live your pain
And as the crown grows tighter around your head
You will die for our sins
As your own blood stings your eyes
Do you think you will ever win
[2.]
Your grace shines through the peeling pain
And that will be your death
Damned by the damned
And cursed by the cursed
Deliver the kiss of poisoned breath
[C.]
Infernal chanting forever after
Undying echoes of devils laughter
Self-chosen leader
You will die by your own hand
Cursed by the cursed
Damned by the damned
You'll be dethroned from your father
No longer god's son
Forever to be condemned
Forever banned you will be
Cursed by the cursed
Damned by the damned
[3.]
Unblessed you wander with no help for your god
Unwanted in heaven
Unwanted below
So was it worth it
All the pain you suffered for your king
You sacrificed your life to the righteous one of his only son
The denial
The denial of you yeah [X2]
[Repeat C.]
[4.]
(Damned by the damned by the.....)
Baptized in poisoned water
(Cursed by the cursed by the....)
Lambs leading lambs to the slaughter
[Repeat C.]
Damned by the damned [X4]


06. Forever Together Forever

Music by Dan Swanö
Lyrics by Mikael Åkerfeldt
[1.]
Leaving the grind the mirror behind
Loosing the ringth then and there
Whisper it was someone else and not me
How I wish I could
[2.]
I keep the secret within deep inside
Grasping without reaching anything
I am alone here to seek for the truth
And your dead star is burning be weak
[3.]
I am a ghost
Dwelling inside myself
[4.]
Please forgive me if you're able
I do not know what I do
The inner autumn shrouds everything
The eternal rain that drown my soul
[5.]
I am a ghost
Dwelling inside myself
I can not bare this anymore
As I am you
[C.]
Together forever
In a masquerade of life and death
Forever together
The vision reached me from a dream
Together forever
Everlasting scars, soul torture
Forever together forever
[6.]
Impossible to leave this void
Unwilling to reveal the true face
Although I reckon this path is the only
And is it true that I can't resist
[7.]
The soil has turned into stone
As I turn around and face myself
So close to the end
Unable to hear
The synchronized heartbeats of my dearest
[Repeat C.]
[8.]
The moon didn't shine that night
Clouds gave way for the blackest sky
The spoken words translated into silence
And none was to blame but me
[Repeat 1.]
[Repeat C.]
[Repeat 3.]


07. Losing Myself

Music by Dan Swanö
Lyrics by Jonas Renkse
[1.]
Losing time
Counting hours
I'll never see myself again
And even though I'm alone I can't
Remember what I'm missing
So I leave it be
[2.]
Closing down
I expect the hopelessness
And everything
And even though I'm alone
I can't remember what I'm missing
And that's all I need
[3.]
I am lost
I feel I am sinking now
Like I was made of rain
Like a wave I roll into the needless night
[C.]
I am not afraid
as the darkness starts
To make its way
I breathe as hard as you
As I end my day
I sigh and shelter
As I try to sink that deep
As deep as you and make sure
That I won't fall asleep
[4.]
Losing days
I Need no hours
I'll never be myself again
And eve though it's killing me
I can't remember what I am missing
So I leave it be.
[5.]
I'm closing down
I expect the hopelessness again tonight
And even though it's killing me
I can't remember what I am missing
But it might be you
[Repeat 3.]
[Repeat C.]
That I won't fall asleep
[Repeat C.]


08. Hollow

Music by Axelson/Benny Larsson
Lyrics by Anders Lindberg
[1.]
Depression ain't 'the reason why everything turns grey
When my mind's been drained through the stream of frozen minds
The hollow one
And thousands have walked this narrow way
But I'm not that kind of man
I wanna stay in my old me
Not leave this peaceful space
[C1.]
But every step brings me further and further away
Away from the man I used to be
I'm hollow
I'm cleaned
All fantasies erased from the sleepless dreams
I'm empty
I'm blank
Lost in an ocean where my soul's been sunked
[2.]
Confused greets me when I awake
I'm feeling restless inside
Not even raised from bed I wanna scream it all out
My artificial joy
From a mouth not mine
My hands are shaking of rage
Soon the last piece of me is gone
And nothing in my world
Can stop the hate inside from growing strong
[C2.]
I'm hollow
I'm cleaned
All fantasies erased from the dreamless sleep
I'm empty
I'm blank
Lost in an ocean where my soul's been sunked
[3.]
What I not know
I am not alone
They are all around
The hollow ones
All erased inside
I ain't here no more
[Repeat 1.]
[C3.]
But every step brings me further and further away
Away from the man I used to be
I'm hollow
I'm cleaned
All fantasies erased from the dreamless sleep
I'm empty
I'm blank
Lost in an ocean where my soul's been cursed


09. Inferno

Music by Andreas Axelson/Benny Larsson
Lyrics by Andreas Axelson
[1.]
Inserted soul denied
No choice but staying alive
Left hand path laughter
The grin strengths up my heartbeat
So where am I to turn
Here where the daylight burns
I'm left for living pain
I've been denied the right to die
[C.]
I feed of sickening
You pain unpuzzles the inferno
I am the labyrinth
My shadow brings you to your death
[2.]
I'm placed to walk this earth
I'm sent to stop your birth
Stillborn miscarriage
I'm the reason
I'm to blame
I Spread my blackened wings
Our city's doomed in war
Death is my employer
Abomination non-divine
[Repeat C.]
[3.]
So if you see me look away
Or never again you will see the light of day
The bringer of torture
The bringer of pain
Never to die
But always bloodstained
Bloodstained
[4.]
This earth I walk alone
Trapped in the twilight zone
Murder and sickness
Like a hunter, hunting for no prey
I Spread my blackened wings
Our city's doomed in war
Death is my employer
Abomination non-divine
[Repeat C. (X2)]


10. Burn The Sun

Music by Andreas Axelson/Benny Larsson/Sami Nerberg
Lyrics by Andreas Axelson
[1.]
So what is life
Don't we all dream of dying or when to die
Mesmerized we try to find
The answers we rather keep inside
So what are we on our knees
And image of all that used be
Straight forward death campaign
Let's go where the dreams shall always reign
[2.]
So what is death
No need to die
Is it a power we can deny
Living dead a way of life
Laid to rest is this a lie
Forever turned backwards
Break the circle
Hypnotized
Insanity
Universal
Invert the star-sign in the sky
[C.]
Hang on
Our journey's begun
Survival means failure under this black burning sun
Be strong your wait has been long
But these wings of fire will carry you on
[Repeat C.]
[3.]
Murder one
Race is run
Killing spree is life undone
Are you dead before you live
Do you have to take before you give
Day of time yet to come
Your clock is ticking by your dream-drum
Left for dead
Left to life
Will your overcome the circle strife
[4.]
The skeletons in your closet world
Awaits the angel of a world that burns
The dream begins
No need to repent your living sins
Never-god
Nevermore
You're free to hate the ones before
Worldly devastation is nothing
compared to altered mind
[Repeat C (X2)]
Burn [X4]
[Repeat 1.]
[Repeat C (X2)]


11. The Last Song

Music & lyrics by Dan Swanö
[1.]
An empty paper in front of me
and the pen that is supposed be
the link between
my thoughts and the written word
[2.]
I always believed that I could write
about anything
But I am always wrong somehow
[3].
Wrong somehow
And I can't find a way
To release the poetry I hide
In the closet deep inside
[4.]
And Why do you hear these words
When I have nothing to say
I am only trying to complete this song
[5.]
So you can see
See that i don't know
That i don't know
the way to find the words
I'm given time
Time to find a rhyme
But all I do is write these empty lines
Though I wish that i could....
