01. Antinferno

In the very last days of judgment
I shall spread my spirit
Upon every flesh
Your sons and your daughters
They shall be prophets
And on this day it shall be done

Yes, upon my servants
I shall spread my spirit
And on this day, they shall inherit

For the first time you have to make a choice
Would you look down
Or look to the stars
To the ocean and far beyond
To the earth that is to erupt
To the red sky, to the storm
To the people who must die now?

A new cross rises on the hills of Jerusalem
Held by the arms of a stronger Christ

Now this is the very beginning of the end
Now lies have to be broken

Yes, cursed be betrayers
For they shall be left behind
And on this day, grace shall be redefined

For the first time you have to make a choice
Would you look down
Or look to the stars
To the ocean and far beyond
To the earth that is to erupt
To the red sky, to the storm
To the people who must die now?

Every one of us must know
That we are the very last ones
Martyrs and legends
Of a future New Testament

Cum aliguando vesperi
Atris nubilibus
Caelum cingitur
Cum auditor supra
Fulmen tonare
Statimpque exstingui
Sile, genua pone!
Vae tibi
Cum venatores
Aestu vesperis
Exsistunt!
Vae audaci
Qui nos in sublime
Adspicere vulti

Now look at me if you dare
It's so bright that it is blinding
A new cross rises on the hills of Jerusalem

Now that all of your nations
Are burned to the ground
Now that the words have no meanings
Experience the last sacrament
Be warm or be forgotten

Yes, upon the faithfuls
I shall spread my spirit
And on this day they shall inherit

A new cross rises on the hills of Jerusalem
Held by the arms of a stronger Christ

A new cross rises on the hills of Jerusalem
Held by the arms of a stronger Christ

A new cross rises on the hills of Jerusalem
Held by the arms of a stronger Christ


02. The Worship Manifesto

So on my head the light is one
Unity manifest
A star more splendid than the sun
Burns for my crowned crest
Burns as the murmuring orison
Of waters in the west, west

Still on the mystic tree of life
My soul is crucified
Still strikes the sacrificial knife
Where lurks some serpent-eyed
Fear, passion, or man's deadly wife
Desire the suicide!

I hold my cross among you lambs
Seven mortal wounds for my vanity
Stigmata of your mockery
I shall be the last you'll ever see
There ain't no life
There ain't no Eden
Proud ignorance
Here lies the storm

Now forget about love and fight
Only believe in beauty
And might
For the beauty of this final act is
Love under will
Love under will!

Ici commence la nuit noice de l''me
Ici s'accomplissent par le feu
Les ouvres de l'éternelle lumiere

Now forget about love and fight
Only believe in beauty
And might
For the beauty of this final act is
Love under will
Love under will!

Ici commence la nuit noir de l''me
Ange de glace désertant l'enfer
Mon corps est un dernier chemin de croix

Ici commence la nuit noire de l''me
Allonge-toi, ô ma mere
Et vois ce qu'est devenue
Entre mes mains ta foi

Ici commence la nuit noire de l''me
Abîme alentour et silence de mort
Cadaver écorché que lave
L'affreux silence de ton corps

There ain't no life
There ain't no Eden
Proud ignorance
The storm lies under your feet
Get on your knees
And repent now
Swear on the cross
And implore me

I stand above the tides of time
And elemental strife
My figure stands above sublime
Shadowing the Key of Life
Fear, passion, or man's deadly wife
Desire the suicide!
Suicide!
Suicide!


03. Sister September

One deceiver
Among millions of others
One look
And you lover forever
One word
And you're the one to blame
Tell me
Who could live with this shame?

Something seems to be dead here
Undergo deconstruction
The symmetry of fear
Strange lack of seduction
My sister remember

Sister...
Sister...
Sister...

Sister September

An inner war is to come
Still he doesn't want to succumb
An ineffable loss of trust
One story
Turning into diamond dust

Something seems to be dead here
Undergo deconstruction
The symmetry of fear
Strange lack of seduction
My sister remember

It's obviously beyond his power
All certainties move towards their end
One question
And so many answers
Where's the crown he once transcend?

Sister September
Where are the dream's you've stuck in me?
Sister remember
I shall never, never forget the name of your devotee

A moment of beauty
Still it remains only a memory
A stunning artifact of the past
The one, the true, the last

Do I have to die under this autumnal sun?
Did I have to trust you?
Truly and madly and blindly
And what did I get in return?

Sister...
Sister...
Sister...
Sister September

Shall never forget the name of your devotee
Where are the dreams you have stuck in me?
An eternity of torture to me
Such a lot of pain


04. Codex-Veritas

[Incarnation I:]

Learn to admit the Machine's emanations
Act of initiatory chivalry
Learn to see the dramas in the sky
Act of terrestrial abnegation

You are not one of them
Not the same breed
You always felt out of place
Join your true scene

You want blood, not peace
You want shouts, you want tears
Not wisdom
Some Divine in their afflictions

[Incarnation II:]

Learn to stand apart from all profane dogmas
Act of final mind revolution
Learn to not care about their punishments
Act of war and liberation

You are not one of them
Not the same breed
You always felt out of place
Join your true scene

You want fire, you burn
Want the Great, not the minor
The absolute
Black and blue
The forever storm

[Harangue:]

Gloria victis!
Fatum nostrum universiis majus
Gloria victis!
Gloria victis!

[Lifecode:]

Cleanliness and order in your modus operandi
Achievement of the Great Work
Obedience, silently

Vois la splendeur vermeille et la triomphante beauté
Et n'oublie jamais ou se terre l'écarlate vérité

Acceptance of doing things
That are beyond your nature
Formal assurance that you are acting right
Whatever happens remember
That they could have no power at all
No power at all against you

Gloria victis!
Gloria victis!

Cleanliness and order in your modus operandi
Achievement of the Great Work
Obedience, silently

You are not one of them
Not the same breed
You always felt out of place
Join your true scene

You want blood, not peace
You want shouts, you want tears
Not wisdom
Some Divine in their afflictions

You are not one of them
Not the same breed
You always felt out of place
Join your true scene

You want fire, you burn
Want the Great, not the minor
The absolute
Black and blue
The forever storm


06. The Shining

I just cannot cope with it anymore
Something is missing
My old faith is dead
I know you want some more force-fed hatred
And I'm gonna fill you up with a kiss

I found my redemption
I'm OD'd and there is no more entertainment
I found my redemption
And now the scene is so utterly dead

I failed
You won
My sin was pride
Excuse me my friends
I have to cast all aside

I have to clean up
Face the serpent's eyes
My life has been so deadly fake
Guess it is a fine day to bow out with grace
And at least angels are fading away

Suicide religion
"And I hate myself, you know I hate you all"
Suicide religion
Some time ago I'd have to write this down
Guess we know it all along

The light was shining in darkness
And darkness couldn't seize it
The light is shut in darkness
It's the shining
The shining

Je ne suis pas des vôtres
Et ce monde n'est pas mien
Reste l'ennui, reste l'orage
Reste la fraîcheur du soir
Et le droit eternal de rester immobile
Dans le temps suspendu

The light was shining in darkness
And darkness couldn't seize it
The light is shut in darkness
It's the shining
The shining

I don't want to hold this cross anymore
I'm bored to death
I'm abused and confused
And I guess that's how you want me to feel
Shall save my soul and leave it all behind

Suicide religion
"And I hate myself, you know I hate you all"
Suicide religion
Some time ago I'd have to write this down
Guess we know it all along


07. An Amen

This is the creation of your world
Pain of endless days with you
Torture of never-ending nights, without God
All my idols are dead
No one risks living anymore

Come, come crashing in
Into my fake glory
Sick as your gods in the desert of skies
No, no one knows
No, no one cares
Hellish boredom
Nobody dares
Dead

All my heroes are dead
Never wanted this to happen
Never wanted to live in there
Just between the ant-hill and the opium-den

There's nothing for us out there
Innocence is lost
Speed up the fall and say Amen
There is death for the dogs

Destin rongé pa le remord
Un sacerdoce grave dans mon corps

Can't stop looking back
All my dreams are drowned
Days always pitch-black
Your Christ is crowned
Void's little helper addicted to wounds
Ran helter-skelter and hit the ground

And I wanted you hot
I wanted you so cold
But because you're half-hearted
I'll spit you out my tired mouth

Our existence is doomed
There's nothing for us out there
Speed up the fall
Say Amen

Our existence is doomed
There's nothing for us out there
Speed up the fall
Say Amen

Dies irae, dies illa
Solvet saeclum in favilla
Dies irae, dies illa
Solvet saeclum in favilla

Ecrance ritualle, prison de l''me
Les heures percent mon caur, autant de lames

Just a drop of social disillusion
And the army retreats in confusion
Forgive me for I don't wanna face the facts
I'm selfish and fearful and counterattacked

And I wanted you hot
I wanted you so cold
But because you're half-hearted
I'll spit you out my tired mouth

This is the creation of your world
Pain of endless days with you
Torture of never-ending nights, without God
Dead

All my heroes are dead
Never wanted this to happen
Never wanted to live in there
Just between the ant-hill and the opium-den

There's nothing for us out there
Innocence is lost
Speed up the fall and say Amen
There is death for the dogs

There's nothing for us out there
Innocence is lost
Speed up the fall and say Amen
There is death for the dogs

There's nothing for us out there
Innocence is lost
Speed up the fall and say Amen
There is death for the dogs

There's nothing for us out there
Innocence is lost
Speed up the fall and say Amen
There is death for the dogs


08. Les Tzars

Dans une maison close
On les retrouve chacun dans leur chambre
Comme des fauves
Un secrétaire d'état, une eurasienne,
Les cosaques attaquent Natacha!
Le vice-consul préfere les coups de fouet
Une buddha affaire qui va éclater
Mais qui a fait tuer Léon Trotsky?
Les yankees s'amusent a Varsovie
Elle en veut aux tzars...

Et un et trois et quatre au placard!
Un cinq a sept en haleine pour mémoir!
Ouh! Wah! Ouh! Wah! Ouh! Wah! Oh la la!
Et che et che et che guevara!
"Et caetera"

Les tyrans et leurs femmes ne sortent plus
Sans un garde du corps
Qui témoigne
Les tzars ont l'habitude des marées noires
Et la solitude d'un guépard
Louis la Voyelle préfere les bottes en cuir
Ça lui rappelle quelquefois son empire;
Et aussi l'ambassadeur du Japon
Et ses mauvaises fréquentations
La Révolution!

Et un et trois et quatre au placard!
Un cinq a sept en haleine pour mémoire!
Mais qu'ils nous foutent la paix!
Mais qu'ils nous foutent la paix pour toujours!

Pour toujours!

Le vice-consul préfere les coups de fouet
Une buddha affaire qui va éclater
Bande a part ils ont fait des pays maudits
Ou meme les chats ne sont plus polis
Ils ont tous la peur d'une révolution
Ou alors d'un camp de rééducation
Une révolution!

Des révolutions!

Une étoile rouge apparaît dans le train
C'est la chinoise qui sourit pour mémoire,
Elle a pris les armes face a son déclin
Elle en veut aux tzars!

Et un et trois et quatre au placard!
Un cinq a sept en haleine pour mémoire!
Ouh! Wah! Ouh! Wah! Ouh! Wah! Oh la la!
Et che et che et che guevara!
Mais qu'ils nous foutent la paix!
Mais qu'ils nous foutent la paix pour toujours!
Et bons baisers de partout!
Et bons baisers de partout!

De partout!
De partout!


09. I'll Kill You

It's all over with me now
And I'll kill you
You changed me
You drove me mad
You robbed me of my loving, it's you!

Still I'm sad that you betrayed me
It's all over with me now
All over with me now
And I'll kill you!

Don't let me go unchecked
I've gotta go wild [x2]

Don't call it dream or fantasy
Nobody knows my soul burned as fire
Why my heart was broken so heavy
You might know my love was for you
You know!

Oh! go to the grave together

I'll kill you (You go to the grave with me)
I'll kill you.
