01. Death-Chain

Music by Lay Down Rotten
The absence of light
Glorification and perfection
Man made plague-human kindness
Revolution in genetics
Technical warfare-feed the flame
Sick and useless-the old must be overcome

Death-chain-no god
Death-chain-no life
Death-chain-all hall the machine
Death-chain-the genetic holocaust

The presence of night
Resurrection and domination
Despise the natural-design your fete
Save the species by duplication
Nuclear weapons-stand the test of time

Death-chain-no god
Death-chain-no life
Death-chain-all hall the machine
Death-chain-the genetic holocaust

Whisper the code of salvation
The big machine has chosen endless numbers

We are perfection-we are the end
We are perfection-we are the end

Death-chain-no god
Death-chain-no life
Death-chain-all hall the machine
Death-chain-the genetic holocaust

Whisper the code of salvation
The big machine has chosen endless numbers
Man is god-god is man


02. A Darker Shade Of Hatred

Music by Lay Down Rotten
Awake in the horror-for the cult of terror
Flashing lights come to die-make way for the night
Sworn- to the dark side-vanished in the void
Grace-you will not find

A darker shade of hatred-prophets-for the lost
A darker shade of hatred-fear will eat you alive
A darker shade of hatred-prophets-for the weak
Gods last disciple

Obsessed with shame-march of the living dead
Free from the bondage of self

A darker shade of hatred prophets for the lost
A darker shade of hatred-fear will eat you alive
A darker shade of hatred-prophets-for the weak
Gods last disciple

The saints betray their own kind-the sons slay their fathers
The mothers set cradles on fire-the daughters mourn in torment

A darker shade of hatred-prophets- for the lost
A darker shade of hatred-fear will eat you alive
A darker shade of hatred-prophets-for the weak
Gods last disciple

East becomes west-the ugly face of devastation
Survival of the sickest-perverted in their minds
They worship-a lie-a procession of martyrs
On their way to hell

Awake in the horror-for the cult of terror
Flashing lights come to die-make way for the night
Sworn-to the dark side-vanished in the void
Grace-you will not find

A darker shade of hatred prophets for the lost
A darker shade of hatred-fear will eat you alive
A darker shade of hatred-prophets-for the weak
Gods last disciple


03. Nightfall

Music by Lay Down Rotten
Instrumental


04. Mask Of Malice

Music by Lay Down Rotten
Demon god-enthrone the rat
Empower the great slut
Sacrament of bewilderment
Rites of deprivation-broken mirror
Guilt of the slave-serve, serve as you bleed
Serve as you bleed

Look behind the mask of malice
See the grimace of viciousness
Rip apart the mask of malice
To face the truth-can be so hard

Pass the deep dark hallway
Into another bitter night
Unwilling to turn the other way
Scared of the voice within
Pure poison all the lies
Nightfall, nightfall of the soul

Look behind the mask of malice
See the grimace of viciousness
Rip apart the mask of malice
To face the truth-can be so hard

See the bloodlines-writings on the wall
Foretold-the end of it all

Look behind the mask of malice
See the grimace of viciousness
Rip apart the mask of malice
To face the truth-can be so hard

Shine down-silver is the light
Estranged from myself-promise me nothing
All has to fail-all has to fade

Rip apart the mask of malice

Rip apart the mask of malice


05. ... And Out Come The Wolves

Music by Lay Down Rotten
We are all we are-a horde-a pack
We are chained-death in our eyes
A force that cannot be tamed
Out of control-yet so cold
Trained to kill on a silent night
Show your teeth and smell the fear

Out come the wolves
A damned division
Death to all traitors
Outcome the wolves
For victory we strike
Our will is our testament

Try us-weak as your are

Somewhere caught between the lines
Right or wrong
True or false-good and
The instinct for extinction

Out come the wolves
A damned division
Death to all traitors
Outcome the wolves
For victory we strike
Our will is our testament

The scent of fresh blood
Fills the midnight air
No place left to hide
Now, lead us to war
Hear us scream
We call for you


06. Swallow The Bitterness

Music by Lay Down Rotten
Sacrifice-damnation of will-pride over humility
Dismantle the opposition-moral suffering-black out
No savior lost-no compromise-the protest-silenced-erased

The protest-silenced-erased

Lost control-i will live on my own hate
Lost sanity-i will live on my own hate

Gunshot bluster-the dream is dead
Swallow the bitterness-drink the poison they serve

The silent of fear fills the room-sore are your whishes now
This fucking horror-this fucking life-get out of me
Freedom chorus in my twist-freedom chorus in my twist

Gunshot bluster-the dream is dead
Swallow the bitterness-drink the poison they serve
Swallow the bitterness

What do you pray for?-who the fuck are you
Your concept of god-crashed by single doubt

Sacrifice- damnation of will-pride over humility
Dismantle the opposition-moral suffering-no compromise
The protest-silenced-erased

The protest-silenced-erased

Gunshot bluster-the dream is dead
Swallow the bitterness-drink the poison they serve
Swallow the bitterness

We've become-so obsolete
Freedom chorus-in my twist


07. Hades Resurrected

Music by Lay Down Rotten
Dominion - evil pure - redefined
The sulphur throne empowered by the beast
Armed to the teeth - the troops of gomorrah
March into the rising storm
Winds of blackness - beholder of the dead
Bark the curse into the night

I-i am forever - praised art thou-thy will
I-i am forever - praised art thou-thy name
Hades melas-hades pelorios-hades aldelos
I am the one
Hades phonios-hades krateros-in all eternity

Disembodied screams predict the arrival
The black goddess will rise
Armageddon - ominous are your ways
Calamity will reign

I-i am forever-praised art thou-thy name
I-i am forever - praised art thou-thy will
Hades melas-hades pelorios-hades aidelos
I am the one
Hades phonios-hades krateros-in all eternity

Lay siege to the temple
The cult has to die
Extinguish the holy flame
And let ashes rain-let ashes rain

The troops of gomorrah
March into the rising storm
The black goddess will rise

I-i am forever-praised art thou-thy name
I-i am forever-praised art thou-thy will
Hades melas-hades pelorios-hades aidelos
I am the one
Hades phonios-hades krateros-in all eternit


08. The Devil Grins

Music by Lay Down Rotten
Drowning - swallow the sun
In this solitude of this cold embrace
Laughter wakes me - makes my skin crawl
Endless, worthless - fear takes over
The shades are down - stuck here again
Silence won't last - panic and sorrow
The high is gone-i am alone

The devil grins-my demons salute mm
Hall to addiction-i hear them whisper

Bury the treasures - bury them deep
Of what once was - that will never be
Scar the face - rip off the spit
Dim the lights - for my time has come
I fail again

The devil grins-my demons salute him
Hall to addiction-i hear them whisper

More is enough - forever this night
Damn the dream a my flag is black

Inhale - the fire of temptation

Silence screams within my despair
Yet there is no answer
Waiting for the dawn

Exhale - the wisdom of distinction

Gone with the first rays of light
Gone with the first rays of light

The devil grins-my demons salute him
Hall to addiction - i hear them whisper
The devil grins-and i smile back
Hall to addiction-hall to isolation


09. La Serpenta Canta

Music by Lay Down Rotten
The path once known now forgotten

Vanished before our eyes
I seek-i will never find the astral door
The gateway to extinction
Last in the eternal void-of nothingness and sorrow
My friend-we shall resist-resist to exist
Forever and a day

La serpenta canta
Songs of loss and grief
La serpenta canta
Songs of rage and fear

Crawl in the cave-light failed to exist
We breed in holes and pools of blood
Corona diabola-corona eternal
I bend my knee and lay this burden down

Junk of minds descending into bleakness
We are nothing-for all there is the final vow
Broken the shell-i remain in destain...
My truth is set free-by those words i believe...
My friend-we shall resist-resist to exist
Forever and a day

La serpenta canta
Songs of loss and grief
La serpenta canta
Songs of rage and fear

La serpenta canta
...shriek of the diabolical siren
La serpenta canta
And so on


10. The Loss

Music by Lay Down Rotten
Wasted youth
Childhood like a painful trauma
Ignorance in every act
Don't feel a don't ask
Lies heard in every word

A loss you cannot bear
Closed eyes tell the truth
The border is in sight
Days like endless nights
All lined up before my eyes

Believe in lies
Abuse of faith and hope
Till you cannot trust anymore
You paid your dues
Long ago-too far away

A loss you cannot bear
Closed eyes tell the truth
The border is in sigh
Days like endless nights
All lined up before my eyes

I still don't believe
I remember every word
Time heals nothing

Days like endless nights
All lined up before my eyes

Every fucking night-a lifetime lost
The future's sealed-by empty hands
Every fucking night-a lifetime lost
I remember every word
Some wounds will never heal
Scars won't tell the truth
