02. Convicted

Condemned to spend my life in darkness
Being punished beyond all sanity
Forever paying harmless sins
Bleak surroundings breaking my soul
Grotesque
Anger
Is killing
My
Passion for life
Going insane
No more dreams
Free me from pain
Convicted
Now here to hide my horrid feelings
Isolated, in this dreadful hell
Possessed by human life outside
Doomed and banished from reality
Grotesque
Anger
Is killing
My
Passion for life
Going insane
No more dreams
Free me from pain
Convicted
Lead: Malmstrom
The final torment takes away the fear
No more suffering, now the end is near
Escape obscurity, make the sacrifice
Had to pay the inevitable price
Grotesque
Anger
Is killing
My
Passion for life
Going insane
No more dreams
Free me from pain
Convicted


03. Bound

Long before man ever existed
We had to dwell in the void between spaces
Being prisoned now and for evermore
An utterly inhuman punishment
Having to wonder in nothingness
Is both a curse and a blessing
Stare into the untold eternity
Like oceans beyond the horizon
I'm your thoughts
Your despair
In control
Of your mind
Centuries ago we took our revenge
Showed you our true faces
Tempted to be released
Possess your darkest dominions
Manipulate you from inside
While you still have a soul
Feed on the spark of life
Obliterate the human existence
Listen to the screams of agony
Knowing that the pain won't cease
No control of your horrid acts
Spreading affliction, not knowing why
There is now way to fulfill
The hollow hope of promises
Wherever you will run
I will always be there
Bound by them which I bind
Need for the fragile human life

I'm your thoughts
Your despair
In control
Of your mind
Unable to ease the suffering
Living this tormented life
No remorse for infliction
Driven by an endless malevolence
The feeling of being dead inside
So exquistely desolate
I am now and forever
I will exist beyond your oblivion
Bound by them which I bind
Need for the fragile human life


04. Rape Of Mankind

No truth will ever set you free
Or help to expose this conspiracy
Always being watched
Every move documented
No more freedom
Oppress the masses
The distress of
Knowing their total control
Not being able
To convince others
Try to spread the word
About society breaking
Those who have
Built what we think is ours
Lead: Ideberg
They feed from fear
The have no limits
As they feel the urge to
Violate, The
Rape of Mankind
They try to
Silence what is good for man
But fatal
To those with power
Just standing by
Watching this secret show
So secret that
No one knows it exists
The truth is no more
Did never really exist
Deep down inside
We know that we will never face the perfect world
No truth will ever set you free
Or help to expose this conspiracy


05. Rusted Angel

Assembled from bits of other creatures
Created not born
Not having to age beyond recognition
I have no soul
Arrogance and ignorance
A useful tool to destroy those with faith
I despise everything. And will annihilate you all
Crucify and justify. The ones who won't follow
In your eyes I see your demise
I am the superior sovereign. Creator of pain
Dressed in sin. Filled with wrath
Vengeful is my vein
Floods of hate boiling distress
Follow the journey to my dark side
See the human remains cover the ground
I feel no guilt for this genocide
Praising true evil with blooded thoughts
Swearing faithfulness to the dishonest
Nourish my lust for immolation
I represent your devastation

[Lead: Malmstrom, Twin guitars: Malmstrom/Ideberg]

Assembled from bits of creatures
Created not born
Not having to age beyond recognition
I have no soul
In this chaos no one is free to do what he pleases
Watching the sky above. But praying to those below
Hunting for my daily rage. See the rising slavement
Using lies to fulfill my dreams
I am the superior sovereign. Creator of pain
Dressed in sin. Filled with wrath
Vengeful is my vein
Floods of hate boiling distress
Follow the journey to my dark side
See the human remains cover the ground
I feel no guilt for this genocide
Praising true evil with blooded thoughts
Swearing faithfulness to the dishonest
Nourish my lust for immolation I represent your devastation
I am the superior sovereign. Creator of pain
Dressed in sin. Filled with wrath
Vengeful is my vein
No compassion for the mortal


06. A Wisdom's Breed

As we walk through the valley of transparent souls
We have to find the knowledge of sin
So we will fear the light as the darkness
Hate lies beyond the fall of any angels
Search the lies
In the insane sanity
And try to invent hope for
Those who have denied
Never seen
Never touched the wisdom of pure pain
Look into the anguish of faith
And see the helpless face of reality
Take a look and see the time forever
Through endless sorrow we have to wander
Drift around in a chaos of regret
We're being slain in the true circles of hell
Search the lies
In the insane sanity
And try to invent hope for
Those who have denied
Never seen
Never touched the wisdom of pure pain
Don't compare your souls to mine
Use your dark powers from deep inside

Let the hate guide our minds to total control
A world full of souls
That have failed to complete their dreams
Anxiety, the breeding of deranged erudition
Search the lies
In the insane sanity
And try to invent hope for
Those who have denied
Never seen
Never touched the wisdom of pure pain
The eternal battle between good and evil
Saint and sinner


07. Chase For Existence

The beauty of your escaping soul
Behold my true distress
Your naked mind is barely existing
I have dreams you could never imagine
Explore your forbidden defiance
See the realm of temptation
Knowing anger
Will betray me
Disconnected
From all feelings
The chase for my existence
Centuries has passed me by
Suffering has now a face
It'll free me from my future
You have your whole life behind you now
Depravity, is what you'll find
I am blind to the darkness in myself
No longer able to control my urges
You have to accept your destiny
Feel the lack of compassion
Knowing anger
Will betray me
Disconnected
From all feelings

The beauty of your escaping soul
Behold my true distress
Your naked mind is barely existing
I have dreams you could never imagine
Explore your forbidden defiance
See the realm of temptation
Knowing anger
Will betray me
Disconnected
From all feelings
The chase for my existence
Centuries has passed me by
Suffering has now a face
It'll free me from my future


08. The Arcane Darkness

(Instrumental)


09. July 1999

This man was no deceiver
This man was never wrong
You must beware, believer
This prophecy is strong
The prophet has predicted
Four hundred years ago
The King of fear decided
The north of earth must go
Holocaust
See it coming
You can't escape
All are bound to be destroyed
A bloody man in under
Who stands upon his head
he saw this yearly number
and upside down he read
Six six six and one
The prophet has predicted
Four hundred years ago
The King of fear decided
The north of earth must go
Holocaust
See it coming
You can't escape
All are bound to be destroyed
In nine teen ninety nine
Is the point of time
The month is July
When millions will die
By the devil from the sky

The prophet has predicted
Four hundred years ago
The King of fear decided
The north of earth must go
Holocaust
See it coming
You can't escape
All are bound to be destroyed
Nostradamus predicted fear...


10. Frenetic Visions

Emotions crucified from the beginning of time
Condemned, not knowing what's my crime
The dreams that ever grew in my mind
Has risen to hatred beyond mankind
Obsessed thoughts are choking me
No one else will ever see
So alone, so cut off, so lost
Have to be free, whatever it will cost
I'm falling below mental darkness
The demons taking control over my head
Won't ever leave me until I'm dead
Insanity eating me from inside
Nowhere to go, now here to hide
I'm forced to give vent to the rage
That has grown in me since early age

Blinded by obstructed imagination
My conscious is reaching the twilight
Erasing the difference between wrong and right
You don't see what I see
Frenetic visions that will never set me free
My world will never be like yours
Greedy lust took me off the course
Trapped in a sadistic desire
That burns my mind like fire
Frustrated by darkness devouring my past
Only the terrifying memories will last
I'm falling below mental darkness
The demons taking control over my head
Won't ever leave me until I'm dead
Insanity eating me from inside
Nowhere to go, now here to hide
If you could hear what I hear
You would join me in this world of fear
Haunted by pleasured and furious screams
Not knowing if it's reality or dreams
