Track Name: Brain Death
(To die there in emptiness
Justice will prevail
Before he gave his final breath
They lead him to his grave)

Unable to move and find his way,
He’s meandering through the secret path…
A brave man soaring up in distant space
They decided to burn his flesh and his heart

Embraced our humanity
That was his destiny

To die there in emptiness
Justice will prevail
Before he gave his final breath
They lead him to his grave

Far from these walls
The winter is gone
Following their logical atomism

He was restrained
In a distant space
Now slowly he’s dying alone.


Embraced our humanity
That was his destiny

To die there in emptiness
Justice will prevail
Before he gave his final breath
They lead him to his grave

Embraced our humanity
Yeah
It was his destiny

To die there in emptiness
Justice will prevail
Before he gave his final breath
They lead him to his grave

I’m dying here in helplessness
Justice must prevail
Before I saw the eyes of this world
They took me to the grave
Track Name: Think Again
Nothing comes without its consequences Even if you’re dying to act, think again
Evil plans are brought upon you when they’re trying to haunt you, think again

Think again nobody can undo their actions Think again before you lose yourself again

Where was my fault where did I go wrong?

I tried to change My heart’s desire (Living in vain)
She didn’t listen to me I couldn’t help myself be
A leap of faith I could never take (No turning back)
Should I give up or should I let you live


Think again nobody can undo their actions Think again before you lose yourself Think again, now is your time. Make your decisions Think again before you lose your pride again

You said: “I never have or will regret” This second is a moment of remorse You tried to leave these things behind and the Scars from them in your heart never let you

Think again Nobody can undo their actions Think again before you lose yourself Fight with pride. It’s time to face your inner demons Fight with pride before you lose it once again
Track Name: Living Hell
I woke up, where am I?
Can’t remember a thing
What do I feel?
How did I come to this?

Addiction, needles burning my skin,
The lights around me are so dim
The substance is in my blood.
I feel it inside

Oh sweet relief of death where are you?
Release this dark chain from my heart
Carry me with you

Now I see, I finally understand
What was lost, entering this cell?
Dreaming of her, craving for the end...
I wanna escape from living this hell
This living hell

Paralyzed, alone,
Standing still
I can sense the emptiness surround me

Just because I can’t feel
Doesn’t mean I don’t care
Sitting in this dark and empty room

Can’t move, can’t shed a tear
Can’t breathe, I’m trapped in here
My fragile eyes wide shut
Drifting off this endless road
This game for me is lost

Now I see, I finally understand
What was lost, entering this cell?
Dreaming of her, craving for the end...
I wanna escape from living this hell
This living hell

Gazing up at the vague sky
The sun is setting on me
But what an irony, God
You are always smiling at me

Can’t move, can’t shed a tear
Can’t breathe,
I’m standing still
This is my own demise
Never imagined it would end well
Track Name: My Own Blood
My weakest part is you, the past can prove it
All those things you’ve done to save me from the pit
You wiped the dust from my forehead
After all those years I betrayed you and him
You came back


Come to me brother I need you with me
No one can save me from the monsters I see

I never wanted this life for us
Escape was not an option
I thought I was protecting my own blood


Inside this fight there is no mercy. Neither a shelter to rest
We fool the people to protect them. Lies, from scratch ‘till the end
Don’t lose your patience and your faith
I tried to do my best. I wasn’t strong enough
God where are you now that I need you


Stay with me brother I’m counting on you
No one’s here for me I can’t stand losing you

I never wanted this life for us
Escape was not an option
I thought I was protecting my own blood

Come to me brother I need you with me
no one can save me from the monsters I see
Stay with me brother I’m counting on you
no one’s here for me I can’t stand losing you

I never wanted this life for us
Escape was not an option
I thought I was protecting my own blood
I always wanted this life for us
Escape was the only option
I never said that you were
My own blood
Track Name: Empty Helmet
I’m not trying to bring justice here and I don’t want to see this case clear
Together we collect the debt and we condemn you
You set up a plan, to create a world of pain and doom
Dragged me to the womb of oppression

For a god with no soul
You’re just a part of his game

I’ll learn the words by heart and play the role you trained me for
I can see the rectitude, I’m coming through


A threat is coming from the sky
Can’t you change my Disturbed mind?
Wearing a helmet on my head
Loyal to my country’s will
I’m Tired of Poetic justice

Look at me behind the bars of this jail
My purpose is lost and they cut off my hair
I have to be patient and comply
with the rules, oh no more hate!


I can feel the emptiness with a shotgun in my hand
And the sergeant’s voice is driving me insane
I can’t hear you anymore
Can you stop to take a breath?
I want to escape from here
I need help but you can’t hear

A threat is coming from the sky
Can’t you change my Disturbed mind?
Wearing a helmet on my head
Loyal to my country’s will
I’m Tired of Poetic justice


Follow me in this misery
And march with the Army of Salvation
Engines of war have engaged
Soldiers, welcome to hell
Thousands of people are dead

I don’t understand the reason we’ve started to fight
I remember the horror of death, abandoning a newborn child
Declaration of war, from us
I uncover my eyes, but thousands of people are blind
Authority, for the benefit of our country
Submission to our nation’s will forever
I don’t wanna break this seal
Allegiance, an evil plan upon us
And you cover up this masquerade
To make us live your own sick dream

How can you live with that? Dissension? For what?
Now I leave this place, lost in my reflection
This paranoia makes me live in my obsession
One nation against these schemes
And only now can I see what this means
Track Name: 13-8
“There’s no hope” he said and left
And the evil spread like wild fire
We tried to flee, but we were crashed
Into the darkest desires

Out of this burning inferno
There was a child
With hands covered in blood
His innocence forever tainted

So for all your life, all your Life
You kept on hiding all your thoughts
With the eyes of your soul you can find all the things that you have lost
And keep on living

And God disappeared
From the face of the Earth
Now instead of Him
The human kind prevails
Ride on until you rise again
Cause the end shall not descend

So for all your life, all your Life
You kept on hiding all your thoughts
With the eyes of your soul you can find all the things that you have lost
And keep on living

‘’For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in many places, as well as famines and troubles…‘’
{These are the beginnings of sorrows
ἀρχαὶ ὠδίνων ταῦτα }


So for all your life, all your Life
You kept on hiding all your thoughts
With the eyes of your soul you can find all the things that you have lost, and keep on living

So for all your life, all your Life
You kept on hiding all your thoughts
With the eyes of your soul you can
Remind yourself of
all the things that you have got
And keep on living…
Track Name: The Clang Of Shields Pt. 1
Upon the world grey darkness
Smelling of blood and corpse
The candle wax in brightness
Showed me the way to roam
Creatures of the fall
Tolls in the midst of life
It took me years to find
The mysteries of your soul

The age of madness
This realm is where I belong
Searching in darkness
Why are my answers wrong?

Bringing down the demons of this world
This empire had to be destroyed
A clang of shields
I cannot avoid

It’s a divine tragedy
Acting on the stage of insanity
We tried to kill our destiny
It’s the beginning of absurdity

The age of madness
This realm is where I belong
Searching in darkness
Why are my answers wrong?

Bringing down the demons of this world
This empire had to be destroyed
A clang of shields
I cannot avoid

Time to escape from this living hell
The flood is coming I can hear the bells

Bringing down the demons of this world
This empire had to be destroyed

A clang of shields
I cannot avoid
I cannot avoid it
My spirit abandoned my body
And it flew away
Track Name: The Clang Of Shields Pt. 2
My theory in life was so earthbound and
Suddenly this abstract figure, in person appeared
I’m not of this world I can surely tell
That they know

Thus I cannot lie and I don’t care anyway
The moments of sorrow within redemption
All this time in a parallel universe
I’ve got to find my way back
I guess nothing is forever in life
Will we disappear on the way back home?
Track Name: Anthem to Creation
There... The nature goes wild
It sows and unfolds all her secrets
Wicked creatures unaware of this place
Draining sunlight with joy
Giving itself fully to its lord
They interfered with the Creation...

Million miles away, behind the snowy mountains
Under the cloudy sky, eyes are incapable of facing heaven
Just travelling with our memories, emotions and dreams..
With the sound of angels' harps and quests for eternity

Twelve ships closing to the land. Slipping slyly upon the sea...
The ropes of the sun are their captain
Night-stars are their compass
Willing to become Kings instead of her...

The harmony of nature, surrounding them like the moonlight hugs the Earth
Birds like nature's heralds beginning their Journey
The picture softly faded, till it turned white, one bleak night of December

Twelve ships closing to the land. Slipping slyly upon the sea...
The ropes of the sun are their captain
Night-stars are their compass
Willing to become Kings instead of her...

They used her beauty, they never shed a tear
She might be hurting, but she doesn't fear
They took advantage of every corner found
A prophet saw it coming, and he’s dead by now

She will rebel, with much anger
You may run but there is no escape

Willing to give you my seeds, willing to serve you always
But you have betrayed me, you are cursed

I will rule this place, you will kneel before me
If you misbehave, I will take your life
Now please give me more ground to ease my hunger
Some wine and some whores, it’s the perfect life

She will rebel, with much anger
You may run but there is no escape

Willing to give you my seeds, willing to serve you always
But you have betrayed me, you are cursed
You are all cursed!

You burned me, you dug me
You didn’t care at all about my heart that’s suffering

Everything is produced implanting the delusion
That all the things we sacrifice are for the common good
Who are you trying to fool?

Even when I warned you
You didn’t hesitate
You made me feel so worthless
Now I will have my revenge

Everything is produced implanting the delusion
That all the things we sacrifice are for the common good
Who are you trying to fool?

Now I see our time is at hand, it is entirely my fault
This is the ending we deserve, we should have known
I can see the angels arrive; this is what I fear the most
This is the ending we deserve, we should have known

It was just a dream (wake up) this is your second chance
Don’t screw it up (no time to lose) off you go to change the world

Twelve ships closing to the land. Slipping proudly upon the sea
The ropes of the sun are their captain
Night-stars are their compass
Willing to become, willing to become
Servants in her hands
Track Name: Breaking Of The 7 Seals
I feel so sad for you Abysmal guilt surrounds you All the things that will happen are your fault

I will break the seven seals
One by one they will destroy you
Everything will fall into place
The four horsemen
The white-dressed martyrs
Devastation released

It will be spoiled
The first creation
You’ve become an abomination
The firmness will be lost
The stars will miss their host
When everything falls apart

Please show mercy
The guilt lies with me
Things can change
I believe in you, I hope it’s not too late
To save my soul

The trumpets blared out
After the silence it’s the end of mankind
I’ve shown no mercy

The seven seals were broken One by one they really did destroy you everything has fallen into place
Everything has fallen into place
Track Name: Marionettes
Nothing has changed. She gazed at the past,
It was better than ever
There’s no time for pain. Against the stream
We will stay together

A newborn will come to life
It’s my own debt to raise it
We’ll do it together
You shouldn’t be afraid
We will fend for ourselves

Some people may rush to draw conclusions
Many of them might find the wrong solutions

Don’t do it or you’ll regret it
This was your last chance to prevent it
You will feel utter desolation inside you, it’s too late

Impossible is nothing
You’ve got no choice you have to face the cold hard facts
You can’t run away for all eternity

-So… we’ve reached this dead end.
-There’s no avoiding the obstacles in our path. Shall we discuss the matter at hand?
-Please don’t do this to me. I can’t stand the thought of it. It’s murder, don’t you see?
-We have to face reality or else life will become a trial for us, full of pain and Suffering
-Face reality you say? Haven’t you ever stopped to consider anything but the obvious? This soul is what will link us together forever. It’s just an innocent child. Please, don’t go… You’ll regret it.
-Listen to me:
-I’ll miss you my love, but I can’t live this lie.
-I’ll miss you my love, this must be a misunderstanding
”Goodbye”.

The gift of life was given to you
It can’t be thrown away like this
The mystery of raising a child The feeling… it’s irreplaceable

You are my whole life
I can’t do you any harm
I will let you live
I will let you live in peace

Nothing remains the same
We picture the future
It’s more difficult than ever

You are my whole life
I can’t do you any harm
I will let you live

Impossible is nothing
