Track Name: Take
What I can offer is never enough
All you do is take and never give back
You limp your way around and I am your stand
Devour all my thoughts and leave me blank

And it's just came to this
where all you do is

Take, all I give
and then take more, take everything
leave me with nothing left to feel
because you can

You know you are broken
you feel so wrong
you should be underground
you should be gone

One way to end this now,
kill all the sickness
you're like the world to me,
the world is useless

and it's just came to this
where all you do is

Take, all I give
and then take more, take everything
leave me with nothing left to feel
because you can

you hopeless vulture
you bag of meat
you crawling maggot
you spineless creep
you son of cowardice
you mindless sheep
you broken human
you piece of shit
Track Name: Before Time Runs Out
I am my own illusion
I thrive in my delusion

crawling and weeping and blame the unfair,
you are the weakest in times of despair
can't find your own self under that skin,
lazily waiting on others to lean

You're almost hypnotized
you're living in trance
you go by the clock, you leave nothing in chance
you work and consume, you live and you die
you follow the circle, you are blind by a lie

I am my own illusion
i thrive in my delusion

I want my safety, my future of lies
I want my comfortness, my hunger for lies

you should pay more attention, you should listen closely
it is your soul talking, it's aching to break free

stop living quietly
stop thinking yourself
this can't be the world you want
this is your personal hell

It is you
about you
this is what happens to you
Think!
Before time runs out
Wake up and Think!


Do now something about it
this can't be the world that you want
Go ahead, do something about it
this can't be the place you belong
Track Name: Mission of Aggression (feat. Tom Angelripper)
I need a miracle
that's what I'm looking for
without caring how
without knowing when
It's what will save me
will bring me back to life
it's what will heal me
force me to open my eyes

I need a miracle and I need it now
I cannot wait much longer
my patience's now over

It cannot start without you
it can't exist beside you

Suffering unites
Our right for better lives
the only true obsession
our sole obligation
Words regain their power
voices screaming louder
the mission of aggression
society at war


look into your soul
stare into your mind
find the reason
why you're so fuckin' blind

you know that something's wrong
you feel it deep inside
you see it all around then why you try to hide

Suffering unites
Our fight for better lives
the only true obsession
our sole obligation
Words regain their power
voices screaming louder
the mission of aggression
society at war

It cannot start without you
it can't exist beside you
you close your eyes then so do all
you keep them open
avoid the fall

Suffering unites
Our right for better lives
the only true obsession
our sole obligation
Words regain their power
voices screaming louder
the mission of aggression
society at war
Track Name: Thoughts of Black
Beginning of the end
Mr. Black got the call
contract made, signed in blood
Someone is about to die

Assassin is payed, he's got you on his sights
No remorse, no feelings, no hesitation
They think he's in for the money, no, it's the thrill of the kill

Moves in shadows, he cannot be seen
He takes his place for one more hunting
Target locked, the finger's on the trigger
One more time to make his hunger deeper

Assassin is payed, he's got you on his sights
No remorse, no feelings, no hesitation
They think he's in for the money, no, it's the thrill of the kill

If only I had a consciousness
If only I gave a damn
What if the victim knows
What if they saw me on my way over here
Thoughts of Black
And then a smile

He holds his breath
This moment, he senses death
(intoxicating)
This is the time
The time he's waiting for
Gently squeezes the trigger
Hears screams in the distance
Sweet music in the air
The sign that the job is done

No remorse, no feelings
No regrets, no escape
They think he's in for the money, no!
It's the thrill, the thrill of the kill
Track Name: Play Dead
I like when you play with me
I say laugh but you stand still
cut your lips from cheek to cheek
then you'll smile forever for me
Track Name: Beyond (feat. Waldemar Sorychta)
I've been living this life
in pursue of a dream
endured sorrows and hardships
never losing my faith
as the years are passing by
and the time flies away
I'm longing to see my own fate
Promises made, soul is eternal, energy will never fade

Beyond my existence
I seek for the truth

I spent my life wanting
to find a destination
I wasted it all waiting
for the god of my salvation

And in the end I'll know
what lies beyond and more

Over and over again
I've been told the same words
There's a reason to live
There's an answer for all
Even when there's no hope and at desperate times
your belief is what keeps you alive
you will know when it's time, you must never forget
God works in mysterious ways

Beyond my existence
I want to know what is true

I spent my life wanting
to find a destination
I wasted it all waiting
for the god of my salvation

And in the end I'll know
what lies beyond is
nothing
nothing
nothing
nothing

rust, rust, rust, rust...
Track Name: Calling the Dead (Séance)
Ache and agony
can't take no more
I can't deal with this
on my own and now
rise from the beyond
make right my wrong
I don't care what it takes
just talk to me

I command the league of darkness
Join
I'm the chaos, the art of madness
Join

Peaceful life in return of my soul
tell me what you want
I will deliver
Pain and sorrow has taken its tall
end my misery
take my life

I command the league of darkness
Join Me, Join Us
I'm the chaos, the art of madness
Join

Calling the dead, I am calling the dead

calling what I shouldn't have called
getting greedy
now with my soul in your hands I'm alive
I no longer act on my own
getting crazy
time to let my senses go numb, they arrive
leaving my despair in the past
getting better
is it me or is it just them, can't decide
wont look back
no matter the cost make it happen
no more pain
I'm ready to start my new life

I command the league of darkness
Join
I'm the Chaos, the art of madness
Calling the dead
Track Name: Helheim
Stig inn i hennes rike
Dra til Hel
mot din endelige dom
Dra til Hel

Annihilation for all unworthiness
Remuneration, few chosen are the blessed
is this the ending
I walk the path of death
the Queen of Nine worlds
I stand before the judge of fates

Half human half dead
guardian and ruler
beware the 2-face head
Hel awaits to judge your soul
offspring of light and plague of the underworld

Daughter of Loki fulfill your gruesome deeds
fallen from Asgard, in Niflheim she's lurking deep
bringer of sorrow, of sickness and decay
I stand in horror
my death has just began it's way

You stand before me
for showing fear before your enemies
for deserting your brothers in battle
for shaming the blood of your ancestors
to the lowest level
i condemn you to my domain

Half human half dead
you see her face,
you know this is the end
Hel awaits to judge your soul
Hel awaits to make the final call
Track Name: The More I Lie (feat. Antony Hämäläinen)
Break the masks, this is your perfect moment
Raise the masks, find the perfect moment

Hide the real you, stand there and look amused
Hide your true self, pretend to be amused

Forbid from others to see just who you really are

I know you feel now stronger, this is the guide against the mass
The mask will make you stronger, this is the guide against the mass

The more I hide
The more I hide my emptiness
The more I lie
Is the reason of my last regrets

The blank paper's written, the empty wall is carved
My identity's molded, through countless different human hands
Awaits for me to claim it, make it mine in this life
Awaits for me to claim it, I'll make it on my own
To cover up my urges, to hide my savage nature

The more I hide
The more I hide my emptiness
The more I lie
Is the reason of my last regrets
I slowly learn to forget
my bare skin, my true self
blur image, fading in the past
this innocence was never meant to last

I know I'm limitless, if only I wasn't me
I know I'm limitless, if only I wasn't flesh

I fight with older versions, I struggle with new rules
What truly lies inside will never be revealed
Track Name: Psychonic
I remember when I was just myself
when the voices were quite in my head
what a blurry image
I can't understand
how much time has passed
since I lost my mind

No God
No God can judge me now
No Man
No Man can heal me
it is just distorted memories
I'm left with my lucid dreams

All I have now is my agonies
everywhere I see my worst enemies
I know there's no turning back
after everything turned black

No god no!
you can't leave me here
I don't belong here
No god no!
you can't be real
this ain't happening

there are reasons
that brought me in this place
I don't care how
it never made sense
suddenly I stop
recognizing
my face is gone
can't see anything else

All I have now is my agonies
everywhere I see my worst enemies
I know there's no turning back
after everything turned black

'Well there are those little voices...they tell me to behave..
and then there are those louder voices..they tell me to kill myself and find others to slay..
I try not to listen but it's getting kinda hard..I cannot escape they keep telling me..
maybe it's you the first that should die by my hand..or maybe not the first...I must be loosing track...'

No god no!
you can't leave me here
I don't belong here
No god no!
you can't be real
this ain't happening

Leave me alone
get outta here
you've no idea
this must be a mistake

No stop no!
you can't lock me here!
This can't be happening to me
Track Name: Goodnight
I'm always there with you now
the eye behind the shadow
You know I am so close yet
there is that trick in my head
The room is getting smaller
that voice is even louder
I know you feel my breathing
I know that you can hear my
...goodnight
