01. Iconoclasm Omega

Can't stand the thought to exist within a lie
Katharsis unleashed, hear my call
This is the point of no return

Can't wait for the day Armageddon rapes humanity
Nemesis unleashed, nations will pray in vain
I have seen the face of death
This is the end supreme

I abdicate god
And his creation
I abdicate "life"
And mankind's false illusions

Pitch black deserts await my pain, so odious mundane
A perversion called "life" leads me astray
let me awake from this never ending faint

Bury me insanity!
All this can't be real
Bury me despondency!
There are just too many wounds to heal

Within the storm of a thousand fears
You will see the face of disdain
Within the hour of a thousand tears
You will hear my name again

Dead race walking!

I abdicate god
And his creation
I abdicate "life"
And mankind's false illusions


02. Self Mutilation

"Welcome to my world,
I know,
You won't see, what I see,
Feel what I feel"

Guided by sin, obsessed by anguish
Again and again
Doomed to suffer, a slave of disdain

"Bleed for me, and I'll lead you
To a higher ectasy
Bleed for me, and I'll lead you
To a deep kind of agony"

Only pain...
As the blade feeds my weary flesh again
Only hate...
As the blade seals my contaminated fate

Tempted by emotions
So far away from what you call "life"

Unchained wolves
Swallow my soul

Despair is the source of all life
Self-Destruction the only way

I choose death to live!

And when Utopia crumbles
Morbid souls move on

...my journey has just begun...


03. Stab Wounds

All the pain I felt in "life"
Shall now be yours until your soul is torn apart
All the despair I had to bear
Shall now melt within your mendacious heart

With my final breath I curse your feeble flesh
To "life" eternal in a joyless labyrinth
Thousands of years of pain for you,
Every single heartbeat, a stab wound within your soul

I am the witness of your fall,
I am the stab wound within your soul
I am the storm within the cold
I am the stab wound within your soul
I am distress, when you crawl
I am the stab wound within your soul

All the pain I felt in "life"
Shall now be yours until your soul is torn apart
All the despair I had to bear
Shall now melt within your mendacious heart

With my final breath I curse your feeble flesh
To "life" eternal in a joyless labyrinth
Thousands of years of pain for you,
Every single heartbeat, a stab wound within your soul

No benediction, no release
No remorse... this scars shall never heal!

...And wherever you may be, wherever you may go,
My hatred will follow


04. When 1000 Crypts Awake

Cold, my heart
Raped by the descendants of light
Embittered my soul
Drowned in a flood of desperate views

It feels like
I have walked this earth
For a thousand years,
My breath so heavy,
My tears in vain

Hypnos embraces mes
The dead caress my sleep once more
I gaze at one single shining star,
That shows me the way
To a distant crypt, to my grave I am yearning for

When thousand crypts awake,
You can hear them calling for me
When thounsand souls are lost
The winds whisper a tragedy
Of one single soul,
That reached infinity


05. Despise The "Living"

Nightmare, oh precious nightmare,
Be my guest, my only friend
In times of despair

Whilst "life" passes by,
Life that never were

Time heals wounds,
But I cannot forget
Time heals wounds,
But I cannot forgive

The gallows call for you,
The gallows call for me,
Can't you see the end is near?

Nightmare, oh glorious nightmare
Tell me within my dreams undreamt
If this is the life they all speak of?

Whilst "life" passes by,
Life that never were

Time heals wounds,
But I cannot forget
Time heals wounds,
But I cannot forgive

The gallows call for you,
The gallows call for me,
Can't you see the end is near?

Nightmare, oh precious nightmare,
Be my guest, my only friend
In times of despair

Nightmare, oh glorious nightmare
Tell me within my dreams undreamt
If this is the life they all speak of?

"Unicus impulsus
Animi mei est
Mortem obire
Mihi mortem conscisco
At tamen tum
Demum vivetum"

Infamous hope,
Monolith of a dying race
I calumniate humanity
With delight

Pestilence, come forth to judge
Come forth and erase this final remembrance


06. A Midnight Poem

Hours get lost, every shadow
A fragment of the past
A scenario of the dead
In grievance for the hours we shared

Curse me, take my breath away
Life disgusts me
Touch me, take my "life" away
Life disgusts me

Years got lost, every single moment
A fragment of demise
For the bleak seasons never change
Within this desolating overture

Curse me, take my breath away
Life disgusts me
Touch me, take my "life" away
Life disgusts me

Life got lost, all hope forsaken
Again the shadows lead my way
To a distant place... to another day

Why?


07. Rest In Oblivion

Still, I gaze upon to the death-drowned skies,
Where all my buried visions lie,
Still, the pulse of "life" tears me apart,
Like a burning dagger within my heart

Smothering, suffering,
My face in the mirror
Just another carved monument of transience
Like a grey illusion in a midnigth's dream

Longing for the final coronation
The day of this sickness' cremation

A weary soul, pierced by the wounds of "life"
Depressing emptiness,
Loss of perception
Misery, come and bless my soul once more

Forgotten, the time, when I was free
Forsaken, the place, where I wish to be
Just one picture marked in my mind,
Death take my hand,
Take me to the ruins of my destination!

Rest in oblivion my perished soul,
In places so drab, in timeless spheres,
Never to be called again
Life is all in vain, for only ashes will remain

Smothering, suffering,
My face in the mirror
Just another carved monument of transience
Like a grey illusion in a midnigth's dream


08. Vanitas... No Horizons

Instrumental


09. Like A Somnambulist...

Don't ask, why darkness never ends
I believe some things were never meant to be

I am Death's devoted instrument
Abysmal dirges guide my way to the graveyard ground
Disharmonic choirs from out of the morgue scream
I am Death's devoted instrument

Alcohol within my veins, mesmerized my senses
Addicted to the other side I feel the subconscious need
To leave this human entity

Don't ask, why darkness never ends
I believe some things were never meant to be

My soul was sentenced far too long,
To perish in a lifeless shell,
To search for answers in this living hell

It doesn't take a lifetime to feel alone
It just takes a look at you... yet it's too late...
...it's time to end it here...
Suicide, the only solution

My senses drift away
Through a bleak vortex of supplanted memories
Fragments of "life" passing by
Through sorrow, tears and silent cries

Death, is it you my faithful friend?
(Could it be, that I've already seen the end?)

We are just fading moments
Of a specious fate
May I be one with decadence
I've pulled the trigger far too late!


10. Sleep!

Why shall I endure something, that never belonged to me?
How shall I endure something, that makes me suffer day by day?

It's all so senseless, it's all so meaningless... emotionless!

Can you heal the wounds, emptiness?
