02. The Omen

The time has come for you
Why don't you see the omen
Open your eyes and cast their lies aside
Your craven kings are headed nowhere
Your blinded leaders, they're headed nowhere
You're headed nowhere

I know they tell you to believe their truth
But I will never stand this pain
I know they say not to worry anymore
But I just cannot look away,
The truth is plain

Closing your eyes is nothing but surrender

How can you ask me
If we can save this world
For them died so many years ago
Get on your knees and greet the omen

How often did they prove your ignorance to you
How many times did they betray
They truth is plain, this truth is plain

Selling the hard-won values we achieved
You know that nothing will ever break the beast
You know there are millions left for dead
But no one broadcasts their cries

And now you dare to ask me,
If we can save this world
For them died so many years ago
Get on your knees and greet the omen

Closing your eyes is nothing but surrender,
A rotten act of treason

Please never ask me,
If we can save this world
For them died so many years ago
Get on your knees and greet the omen


03. Combat

Welcome to a world of pain,
This is the day of your conversion mortification
Dragged away from home on blood red nights
Slave to a brutal system

Forevermore
You are an orphan now,
Adopted by the beast of war
The end of all your childhood dreams has come

No more will you meet a smiling face
Now peace has left your sleep forever
There are no arms to hold you,
Yet there are no hands to wipe your tears

Constrained and forced to kill
These cruelties will haunt you
A life in combat,
Your fear will make you bleed
Your inner combat

A life without a future, you will forget your wishes
And nothing to embrace, but the rifle in your hands

Forevermore
You are an orphan now,
Adopted by the beast of war
The end of all your childhood dreams has come
A life of combat, forevermore

No more will you meet a smiling face
Now peace has left your sleep forever
There are no arms to hold you,
Yet there are no hands to wipe your tears away
There are no arms to hold you
Peace has left over your sleep


04. I Was I Am I Shall Be

Never forgive, never forget
This world is out of joint
Your order's built on sand
Conspiracy to murder, cold blooded murder
Assassinated the few who fought this wrongful system

And to you, you masters of affliction
We speak our words of truthfulness
Our death will hinder nothing
This is the way to walk, this is the time to act
I was, I am, I shall be

They heard the tunes of revolution
They felt we'd seize the power
Infamous deeds of desperation
You may take us off the streets,
But nothing stops this righteous rage

And to you, you masters of affliction
We speak our words of truthfulness
Our death will hinder nothing
This is the way to walk, this is the time to act
I was, I am, I shall be

We know you sense the coming thunder
Insidious rulers
Never forgive, never forget
Of that there is no doubt
Never forgive, never forget
We know this storm will rage again

And to you, you masters of affliction
We speak our words of truthfulness
Our death will hinder nothing
This is the way to walk, this is the time to act
I was, I am, I shall be


05. Buried In Forgotten Grounds

I know that they will bleed in hell
But where is justice in this unjust world?
Where is the truth we died for?
You feed the lie they fight for

Silence and screams are the end of my song
There is no threat to scare us
Our tunes and words remain
As songs of rage to carry our names

Although your hangmen may be dead by now
There is no share of this blame
No cheap excuses we accept
Make no mistake about it

Our songs and words remain
As storms of rage to carry our names
We'll make you bleed for this
There is no share of this blame

Our wives and mothers,
So many years they hoped in vain
Nothing will be buried in oblivion
You saw no anguish in our eyes
This terror did not brake our will
Remember our names!

Silence and screams are the end of my song
There is no threat to scare us
Our songs and words remain
As storms of rage to carry our names

We'll make you bleed for this
You will share this blame
Nothing will be buried in oblivion
You saw no anguish in our eyes
Nothing will be buried in oblivion
You shall remember our names

We may be buried in forgotten grounds,
But the heartbeats of our loved ones
Will be the drums to break your sleep

I know that they will bleed in hell
But where is justice in this unjust world?
Where is the truth we died for?
You feed the lie they fight for


06. Sevastopoll

Here we are, waiting for the storm.

Here we are, waiting for the storm to come.
We know this world will drown in blood.

Last days of May, this spring is dying once again,
But we sense this summer may not be ours anymore.

Within these walls, we're loyal brothers,
Comrades till death.

Now in the distance we see the fires rage.
They will not take this place, will not defile this ground.
We're not afraid to die, no one will break this line,
This darkened world will hear our cries.

This darkened world will hear our cries.

As clouds of dust contaminate the deep blue skies,
We're crawling through the debris of our homes.
Here we are, waiting for the storm.
Here we are, this world will drown in blood.

Now in the distance we see the fires rage.
They will not take this place, will not defile this ground.
We're not afraid to die, no one will break this line,
This darkened world will hear our cries.

Curtain fires, lying in the trenches, buried deep
As cold ashes cover this swaying world in grey.

Inside this fortress, we're faithful sisters,
Comrades till death.

As their bombs eclipse this shallow sun
And their guns annihilate our sanctuaries,
Our confidence, it will not vanish, not abate,
We will not cease resisting.

Now in the distance we see the fires rage.
They will not take this place, will not defile this ground.
We're not afraid to die, no one will break this line,
This darkened world will hear our cries


07. The Lie You Bleed For

This is the war you called
And I'm the one who came to judge you.
Too soon your gods will leave,
This is the day of your defeat.

Welcome the newborn slaves,
Forgotten and betrayed.

Just burn it down.
Black skies will rise
And overshadow your demise.
Long for the peace of surrender.
Just stare into the void.

Welcome the newborn slaves,
Disfranchised and betrayed.

Just feed your new found hate,
A force nothing will break.
Just burn it,
Just burn it down.

It's in the air you breathe,
An everlasting poison,
An order of deceit,
It is a lie you bleed for.
It's in the words you speak,
Faint echoes of deception.
When will you ever see
No one will set you free.

Welcome the newborn slaves,
Forgotten and betrayed.
Long for the peace of surrender.
Just stare into the void.

It's in the air you breathe,
An everlasting poison,
An order of deceit,
It is a lie you bleed for.
It's in the words you speak,
Faint echoes of deception.
When will you ever see
No one will set you free.

Und damit du es verstehst,
Du folgst den falschen Führern.
Der Kampf ist nie vorbei,
Du bist nicht frei.

It's in the air you breathe,
An everlasting poison,
An order of deceit,
It is a lie you bleed for.
It's in the words you speak,
Faint echoes of deception.
When will you ever see
No one will set you free.


08. Return To Sanity

An unforgiving chill crawls down my blood stained limbs
And a thousand frozen bodies line our way into the night
Shadows of dead trees appear like ghosts in poisoned clouds

Heart-wrenching cries agonize my soul
Hand to hand we fight
And man by man we die
No sanity is here to find, our god has left this hell
We're wandering like shadows
Through frozen worlds

Once my mind was occupied,
Filled with heroic stories,
All glorious tales about this war
But now I know there is no honor here to find
We're marching endlessly, relentlessly, towards the end
A purgatory we walk through, a common grave for all of us
No matter friend or enemy, a forest of the dead

Heart-wrenching cries agonize my soul
Hand to hand we fight
And man by man we die
No sanity is here to find, our god has left this hell
We're wandering like shadows
Through frozen worlds

I should not care about my enemies,
Tell me what have I become
My blackened heart's still beating
All of a sudden I'm aware
Compassion is no weakness, compassion is no treason


09. Against Bridge Burners

So much terror I have seen
Fought endless years for their revenge
Now I know this struggle ended nowhere
I am remembering with shame

I feel my time has come to fight for understanding
I'm not defeated, I am not beaten
Throw into the darkest dungeon, I pay for my forgiving thoughts
They may preach about the same convictions
But they will distort these high ideals

No ferocity will unsettle my beliefs
I am not taken by the enemy
Mechanisms of stagnation
As agitators rule the land

They want to make us live in fear
Yet all they get are unshed tears
They want to make us live in fear
Locked up in gloom for years
Try to silence my voice, but I am not beaten!

No brutality will unsettle my beliefs
I am not taken by their felony
Mechanisms of stagnation
As agitators rule the land

And a thousand miles away from home, I meet my expelled brothers
Captured in a secret prison, isolation, regression, indignity for years

No atrocity will unsettle my beliefs
I am not taken by this agony
Mechanisms of stagnation
As agitators rule the land


10. Of Forsaken Poets

I did not choose to tread this path,
a forced journey into an unknown future.

As our doom eclipsed this clueless state,
I hate to leave my world behind.

Their hate was so outright,
it filled my heart with fright.

My people chose to welcome tyranny,
the slaves of terror, murder, pain
humanity lays dying once again.

Their hate was so outright,
it filled my heart with fright.

I know only too well, I am an undead poet.
Buried in no ground
I know only too well

Now here I am, disabled but alive.
Where no one calls my name
Where nothing meets my soul
Now here I am
But kannot build my home
As no one reads my bitter words

I'm yearning for the day of my return
Yet nothing's there to make my dreams come true

I know only too well, I am a ghost wandering this world
I'm like a ghost, I know only too well

Now here I am, disabled but alive
Where no one calls my name
Where nothing meets my soul
Now here I am
But cannot build my home
I see the distant flames
This outland holds no hope
As no one reads my truly bitter words


12. Given In Death

Nothing but pain, nothing but anguish
Depriving me of mercy, refusing all compassion
These bare walls around me
My prison, my dungeon

Deliver me to ransom,
No god can justify this cruelty
There's nothing left for me
There's nothing left but agony

At last break down this dogma
Just let me go, just let me be
Just let it be my last breath
As all peace has left this world

There is serenity given in death
Silence is falling down
So long ago I lost my anchor
As all my sorrows drown

The turmoil of this world is not my struggle anymore
The end is putting down its hand for me,
I see, I feel

As all my sorrows drown
Just let me go, just let me be
Just let it be my last breath
Days fade away, songs die away

My peace of mind, given in death
As all peace has left this world
So long ago I lost my anchor
I'm longing for redemption

The turmoil of this world is not my struggle anymore
The end is putting down its hand for me,
I see, I feel

These bare walls around me
My prison, my dungeon
There's nothing left for me
There's nothing left but agony

The turmoil of this world is not my struggle anymore
Enclosed by the mists of oblivion,
Songs die away

The turmoil of this world is not my struggle anymore
The end is putting down its hand for me,
I see, I feel
