01. Dante's Inferno

"Per mi si va ne la citta dolente
Per me si va ne l'etterno dolore
Per me si va tra la perduta gente."
Threatening and cold
A poem for the underworld
Where shadows walk
Beyond redemption

Dante's Inferno
Dante's Inferno

Minos wraps his serpent
Tail around himself
To mark a sinner's level
His prison cell.
The famous poet Dante
Is passing through the gates
The only living being
In this accursed place

Threatening and cold
A poem for the underworld
Where shadows walk
Beyond redemption

Dante's Inferno
Dante's Inferno

The greedy pay the price
Their wealth is cursed
The wrathful fight each other
Covered with slimy mud
The flames are burning heretics
And for the violent ones
Red blood is boiling
As thieves will turn to vipers
And vipers will turn to thieves

Ninth, the lower plain.
Who could ever guess?
It is a frozen lake!
An angel in his past, a fallen one
Right on the spot he crashed
For aeons is lying down

02. 3rd Testament (Codex Omega)

A human has written all books
A human mind has thought of the "proof"
To rule the earth, he had to ascend
To rule his peers, their will he had to bend

Bibles are portraying a world in black and white
We invented the devil, so the devil is man!

If Satan was the father and Antichrist the son
Lilith was the mother and Lucifer the spirit of light

Reversed is the 3rd Testament
The 3rd Testament
The 3rd Testament

A phantom god guarding your salvation
He lives in books, your imagination
An abstract thought, lord of all creation
An absent king, the final revelation

If Satan was the father and Antichrist the son
Lilith was the mother and Lucifer the spirit of light

Codex Omega

03. Portrait Of A Headless Man

In a world controlled by fire
In a world controlled by fire
Psychotic preachers thrive

They use the waves to bind us
They use the screens to blind us
I joined headless forces
They told us what to do
We worked, we fought, we bled

A cogwheel in the system
A ghost in the machine
In my private thoughts
Only pain felt real

Cry!
I am crying, in the portrait
Of a headless man
Laugh!
I am laughing, in the portrait
Of a headless man

I am a man with strong regrets
I followed great deceivers
Believe in headless leaders
They played their game, true sons of Cain
But I was a hopeless dreamer
With my head deep in the clouds

More joined the fiery leaders
And blood was shed in rivers
Those without a mind had to pick our side
With the use of fearsome methods
One more empty frame ready for display
On a gallery of headless portraits

Cry!
I am crying, in the portrait
Of a headless man
Laugh!
I am laughing, in the portrait
Of a headless man

04. Martyr

Your books, your friends, your life is in mortal danger
The things are tense and knowledge is offense
In this nation vast deception reigns
Church and politics threaten your survival

A strife has grown between faith and wisdom
You chose to stand for the exalted ego
Your creation, a creation maimed
Blame the vultures for their vile way

The mob: "Run Devil's seed! You will face the wrath of god
Run Devil's seed! You will face the wrath of god
Run Devil's seed!"

You will face the wrath of god
The highest price you'll pay
You will face the wrath of god
The highest price you'll pay

Martyr
Unyielding force of thought and spirit
Martyr
Unyielding force of thought and spirit

Your essence remained
Your work, your life, your books

Unyielding force of thought and spirit, shine!

05. Enemy Of Truth

The silent borderland
Where words become undone
Brainwave, treachery
A different truth to see
To keep a secret
Misinformation is the key

Twenty first century
New ways of slavery
So many prying eyes
Communication spies

Ghosts are fighting for the cause
With poisoned words
Half truths, false proofs
The trap is set to snare the wolf
The enemy of truth

Fight the enemy of truth
Fight the enemy of truth

Sense destroyer
Sense destroyer
Sense destroyer
Sense destroyer

Mental surgery
Social lobotomy
Confusion, delusion
We all connect and share
The perfect way for lies to spread

Fight the enemy of truth
Fight the enemy of truth

06. Dark Art

Blessed be the night, the architect of all creation
Her wings are wide and strong and black
She is bleeding light, stars form a congregation
She is the force, our soul and fire

Blind lead the blind
Another day
The sun is lost
Nocturnal cities
Secrets lie buried in the sand

To craft the dark art we used our soul
Emotions bleed, but we stay strong

Disciples of the dark art

To craft the dark art, we used our soul
Emotions bleed, but we stay strong
Darkness binds the world!

Save me!
Another day
The sun is lost
Save me, strong wind
Strong and bitter and cold and old

07. Our Church, Below The Sea

Gothic walls below the sea
Corals rising high
A building is standing tall
Fearful, yet majestic

Surface dwellers never come
Yet it haunts their dreams
Tales about Atlantis come to mind

When the waters kiss
The mouth of madness
And the sea is chanting
Horrid fish come as guardians
For our church
Our church, below

Hail! Cthulhu lives
He escaped the abyss
Hail! Cthulhu dreams
Of his house in the deep
Hail! Cthulhu lives
He escaped the abyss

Placed upon the ocean's floor
On the abyssal zone
Sunlight cannot get down here
And freezing currents flow
Rusting chandeliers
Are hanging from above
Chthonian priests
Are praying to elder gods

When the waters kiss
The mouth of madness
And the sea is chanting
Horrid fish come as guardians
For our church
Our church, below the sea

Hail! Cthulhu lives
He escaped the abyss
Hail! Cthulhu dreams
Of his house in the deep

When the waters kiss
The mouth of madness
And the sea is chanting
Horrid fish come as guardians
For our church
Our church, below the sea

08. Faceless Queen

Always so distant
Hiding from the sun
He is looking around her
To find where she is not

The archway of heaven
The saints of the earth
Old parts from her broken ribs
Now she is enthroned
On the spaceless void
She is breathing fire as a dragon
And we all feel the heat
Her touch is soft as the wind

Faceless queen
A mask your only skin
Faceless queen
Faceless queen
Can you remove
Your mask of skin?

She is enigma
A canvas without frame
Worshiped as goddess
By the toys she made from clay
Behold the faceless queen
Behold the faceless queen

Her realm extends to the endless sea
And she rules from the spaceless void
She is breathing fire as a dragon
And we all feel the heat
Her touch is soft as the wind

Faceless queen
A mask your only skin
Faceless queen
Faceless queen
Can you remove
Your mask of skin?

The serpent with the golden crown
Faceless staring at the sun
The serpent sits upon its throne
Faceless staring at the sun

Always so distant
Hiding from the sun
He is looking around her
To find where she is not

Behold the Faceless Queen
Behold the Faceless Queen

09. The Gospels Of Fear

Your future life can be at stake
From good to worse
Make no mistake
One moment here, the next one gone
The seed of terror soon will grow

We learn to live with fear each day
It has to be another way
As moments fly, the things we want will be obtained
Or maybe not

ACTH, epinephrine
Are flowing through the bloodstream
The fear of failure
The fear of death
The fear of loss
The gospels of fear
Embrace fear

A grim companion is always there
His vicious thoughts are hard to bear
In every mind, in every soul he gains control

He offers help but in exchange you have to step inside the cage
Dare not to question the things you'll see
All kind of horrors you will perceive

Toxic thoughts come to thee
Vicious mouths eating thee

The gospels of fear
Embrace your fear

10. Trinity

I am the abyss
I am the way
The secret door to a hidden cave
A different place to the garden of fools
You can enter here, if your steps will lead you to

Thoughts are sailing fast, like ships into a storm
Dreams are fading; they are heading to a point of no return

You can call me Trinity, as three divide the whole
One third of me, is what you see
A mirror is my astral door

Trinity
Remember what you always have been
Trinity
The one that is three
Trinity
The one possessed by three
