1. Inside

Call out my name. Your sadness is my sorrow.
Make up your mind and the feeling stays inside.
No time for pain. No Time to thinks things over.
Find out what's real in your secret world
This is what I say.
We're living our years of decay.
But I cherish all moments each day.
I remember the love that I knew.
So sad. So true.
The quest for the truth where it lies.
All I see is the pain in your eyes.
But feelings do not betray.
My faith will move mountains.
Every day of my life.
What will it be, wrong or right?
Insane.
Mentally insane.
Close.
You're so close yet so far away.
Together alone we will stay.
I'll care for you for what it's worth.
Untill you will be one with the earth.
Every day of my life.
What will it be, wrong or right?
I will wait.
Be faithfull.
Untill my death!
Insane.
Mentally insane.


2. The Stain

Day by day memories hurt inside.
Watch him pay while he keeps on sliding
Day by day memories hurt inside.
Watch him pay while he keeps on sliding down.
What do I need in my pityful decline?
Can't cope at all with the stain you left behind.
I don't need your help 'cause my soul cannot be saved.
Wasting away.
See me dancing on my grave.
I see the end of my world.
I see the end.
I see the end of my world
The end is in sight.
What do I need in my pityful decline?
I can't cope at all with the stain you left behind.
Give me just what I want.
What I need I get.
Your talk is full of shit.
I'm full of life, you bet.
Shut up your face!
Where is he?
This man that I used to know?
Where is he?
This man that I used to know?
Day by day memories hurt inside.
Watch him pay while he keeps on sliding down.
Shine on like a star.
Call me from afar.
Space.
See me fly high.
Feel the XTC.
Burn inside of me.
What do I need in my pityful decline?
Can't cope at all with the stain you left behind.
Don't need your help 'cause my soul cannot be saved.
Wasting away.
I'll be lying in my grave.
This is the end of my world.
This is the end.
This is the end of my world.
My own downfall is here.
Day by day memories hurt inside.
Give me just what I want.
What I need I get.
Watch him pay while he keeps on sliding down.
You're talk is full of shit.
I'm full of life, you bet.
Shut up your face.


3. Grip

Get a grip before you make me sick.
The things you say of low-self-esteem.
Life is hard and nothing is for free.
So swallow your pride and follow your dream.
Get a grip.
No pain.
No gain.
It's hard enough as it is.
Free your mind from all the stress that you give.
Get on your feet.
There is more you can achieve.
Hold your head up.
In yourself you must believe.
Hear my threnody.
Share my despair but.
Please leave me alone in my nightmare.
Wrong is in my dreams.
Deceit and illusion.
Life is what it seems.
You hear me wailing now
Get a grip before you make me sick.
The things you say of low-self-esteem.
Life is hard and nothing is for free.
So swallow your pride and follow your dream.
Get a grip.
Don't you know that you're driving me up the wall.
You're so insecure.
That's why you feel so small.
But I know these times are hard.
Face up and you will see.
You must persevere 'cause you still mean a lot to me.
Hear my threnody.
Share my despair but.
Please leave me alone in my nightmare.
Wrong is in my dreams.
Deceit and illusion.
Life is what it seems.
You hear me wailing now
Get a grip before you make me sick.
The things you say of low-self-esteem.
Life is hard and nothing is for free.
So swallow your pride and follow your dream.
Get a grip.
Hold your head up high,
You don't give up.
You try.
Hold your head up high.
Actions speak louder than words!
I know life is hard.
You're struggling from the start.
I know life is hard.
Life is what you make of it.
Hear my threnody.
Share my despair but.
Please leave me alone in my nightmare.
Wrong is in my dreams.
Grip. Don't complain!
Life is what it seems.
Grip. Hold your pain!


4. Twisted Games

Sin is the reason for living my own way.
No one will challenge me 'cause I am worth the pay.
Tear down the house. Nothing simple is unturned.
Wait for the moment where violence is concerned. I'll wait.
Taste me. Taste me.
Taste my twisted game.
Tell me. Tell me.
How sick is your brain?
Since I became your queen. My beauty's what you've seen.
Sin is the reason for living my own way.
No one will challenge me 'cause I am worth the pay.
Tear down the house. Nothing simple is unturned.
Wait for the moment where violence is concerned. I'll wait.
Taste me. Taste me.
Taste my twisted game.
Tell me. Tell me.
How sick is your brain?
Make this the one that the forces will forsee.
I know the ones that my crazy mind will crave!
The mechanism is on.
We're living it up. We're living it up tonight.
The violation of us.
We're getting it up. We're getting it up 'till we come.
untill we come!
Sin is my middle name! Sin is my twisted game!


5. Pain

Feed me. Heed me!
This is real. This pain inside I feel.
To vanquish in my life. All in vain, but the memories will remain.
To haunt me in my strife.
Do it your way.
But I am hungry for your blood.
Please leave my kind alone.
Leave me alone.
I am hungry for your blood.
My search in life is filled with pain.
Feed me. Heed me!
Feed me with your pain!
Do it your way.
But I am hungry for your blood.
Please leave my kind alone.
Leave me alone.
I am hungry for your blood.
My search in life is filled with pain.
Feelings of doubt.
Deep within abound.
Rivers of tears wash away my fear.
Will I ever be by your side wherever we'd go?
You're my brother.
You're my best friend.
Only we will know.
I stared into your eyes each day.
Now I'd wish it could be for real.
Would you ever look into mine if you'd know how I feel?
I will not break in the shadows of deceit.
All love not lost.
Nothing gained.
Doesn't matter the cost.
Leave no regrets.
No control upon my soul.
Leave me alone.
Stay with me.
And feel the grip of my despair.
Contradiction reigns!
Driving me insane!
Do it your way.
But I am hungry for your blood.
Please leave my kind alone.
Leave me alone.
I am hungry for your blood.
My search in life is filled with pain!


6. Deal With The Real

Say farewell. The world is at it's end.
Marching to the gates. The bloody skies descend.
On your knees. The hope for massive help.
Will some feel sorry for? Will anyone defend?
Face what you have. This is all you can take.
Face what you see. Help yourself.
Face what we've caused in this world full of hate.
Face what to do. You can't trade place.
Deal with the real.
I have dreams of knowledge unrestrained.
To feed our hungry minds. To perfect our lazy brains.
Will they dare to co-operate with us?
Is there anything for them? Enough for them to gain?
Save us from the violence. From the warfare. From the pain.
Now we can't find the ways to save our own world to keep it sane.
Face what we've caused in this world full of hate.
Face what to do. You can't trade place.
Deal with the real.
Kyrie eleison Christe eleison.
Kyrie eleison Christe eleison.
In your house will I find the strength I need?
Whisper the name of Father and Son.
Where's the reason? For whom did you bleed?
After your dying day it began.
Hear us cry your God and mine.
No more time. No question why.
No more peace inside my mind.
One more step. First say goodbye.
Dare to take one step behind.
Heal your pain. Take up your Faith.
Once you make. Believe yourself.
Everyone shares it with you.
We can't find the ways to save our own world to keep it sane.
Face what we've caused in this world full of hate.
Face what to do. You can't trade place.
Deal with the real.


7. Behold

In the Southern woods of a kingdom so small.
A little baby which was born with a caul.
The legend said if a woman would bear.
We'd granted fortune and release from despair.
Behold the quest is complete. Good fortune will lead our way.
Baptized the child will be ours for eternity.
Who took my little boy just brought him into this world.
God take good care of him. Oh thy please let him live.
Whispering. I'm taking what's mine.
Withering. You're my fortune sign.
My mouth was filled with slaughter and pain.
Our tribe took fortune and fame.
In my eyes the flames. A sense of delight. We ride into the
Violence and bloodshed. It doesn't feel right.
I'm fooling myself in a way.
Killing and raping. Their blood on my hands.
Something inside is telling me I don't belong here.
Behold the quest is complete. Good fortune will lead our way.
Baptized the child will be ours for eternity.
I took your little boy and brought him to my world.
I take good care of him so you won't see him live.
I miss my baby a child that was born.
A mystery was here in my arms.
Where is my baby I feel forlorn.
This tragedy is tearing my heart.
As years passed by I grew up from child to man.
In my heart and my soul. My strength will frighten my friends and foe
But my roots don't feel whole
The lady who took care of me so well.
Our resemblance had to break the spell.
As I saw mother and her child.
I can't believe you're still so undefiled.
Waited many years to hold you in my arms
I've lost and you've won. You may embrace your son.


8. Weakness Of Flesh

The beast within has just arrived.
It got me confused. It struck me blind.
Bad habits will die hard.
To see you here so close so near.
Give yourself to me.
I'll be the captor of your heart.
Morality I cannot find.
Like it's out of sight, out of mind.
My lust is growing stronger.
All values gone. All will be done.
Give yourself to me.
You will be amazed of my disgrace.
Come to me I'll tell you, you're wildest dreams.
Fantasy I'll give, you XTC.
Got to stop. Wake me up.
Face the facts.
I'm drowned.
Weakness of flesh.
Wake me up and face the fucking facts.
I'm drowned in Weakness of flesh.
Come to me I'll tell you, you're wildest dreams.
Fantasy I'll give, you XTC.
Got to stop. Wake me up.
Face the facts.
I'm drowned.
Weakness of flesh.
Wake me up and face the fucking facts.
I'm drowned in Weakness of flesh.
I can't resist desires so sweet.
I betrayed my love admitting defeat.
And with your life your pleasure left behind.
Where you can see that you must have been blind.
Feel me. Believe in me.
I'll die without my values and trust.
To satisfy my hunger for lust.


9. Kick

Brothers from the same ground as where our Father's died.
We said the world farewell but still we lived to see.
How everyone forgot what went wrong with this regime.
Maybe you think I preach but I predict to thee
Where's your sanity young man? Where's your sense to feel?
You're time will come. You will succumb.
I don't understand why do you ignore?
Fascist pigs causing shit like they did before.
Where's your sanity young man? Where's your sense to feel?
Don't hold your breath. You'll feel my wrath.
I'll kick your fucking ass!
Choices made in life. You know it's plain to see.
Different views, black and white, there will always be.
Blinded by our fear, we live reality.
But what I see, Deaf Dumb Blind, I don't want to be.
Where's your sanity young man? Where's your sense to feel?
Your time will come. You will succumb.
Keep avoiding while you can. Then you won't get hurt.
Don't hold your breath. You'll feel my wrath.
I'll kick your fucking ass!
Stay out. Out of the shade.
One way. One way to see.
The joys.
The griefs.
The pain.
The pleasures.
The boy that leaves the strain unseen.
Sometimes it might seem it's just a waste of time.
Deaf ears don't listen to what I have to say.
Step up and act now to guarantee you won
Gotta change your ways. So damn you if you don
Where's your sanity young man? Where's your sense to feel?
You're time will come. You will succumb.
Keep avoiding while you can. Then you won't get hurt.
Don't hold your breath. You'll feel my wrath.
I'll kick your fucking ass!


10. Drag You Down

Shut your mouth and
It's in my heart. It's in my veins.
My wish is your command. You will obey all that I say.
Or suffer by my hand.
Serving me is all you're living for.
So do not think, do not try.
Do as I say, not as I do.
Our way of life.
Take my command. The rules that I dictate.
Follow and submit. The translations of my hate.
You're in control ignoring what I feel.
Can't speak up my mind.
You've checked my lips were sealed.
You raise your voice and I fulfill your needs.
Too scared for pain. I leave my heart to bleed.
It's in my heart. It's in my brain.
My wish is your command.
Do as I say, not as I do.
Our way of life.
Take my command. The rules that I dictate.
Follow and submit. My lust of power is gonna drag you down.
I've reached my point of no return.
It's where I want what I have earned. Liberation.
A journey, destiny unknown where I'll be queen
and reign with love care and vigour.
Can I be strong enough to change my
life and run you win yes you win
Shut your mouth and
Take my command. The rules that I dictate.
Follow and submit. My lust of power is gonna drag you down.


11. From The Cradle The Grave

Part of my life, from the cradle to the grave, for better for worse.
I feel a sign of life inside of me.
The tender movements force to make me see.
And then I realize. You will be my demise.
Waiting for months, prepare for what will be.
I'll guide you through your life and make you see.
I am your guard. All you'd be I have at heart.
You'll learn the world to know. It won't be easy to watch you grow.
Part of my life, from the cradle to the grave, for better for worse.
Part of my life. You make me feel strong.
Cause here with us is where you belong.
For better for worse to bring you near.
I'd give my life to end your fear.
There'll be a time for pride, a time for shame.
But in my heart you'll always stay the same.
And still I'd realize, you're in this world of lies.
I pray for your health. I fold my hands.
A whispering voice that reassures me
Clouds packing. The earth is rumbling low.
Calls of nature around the sky they flow.
Terrifying heat and shivering cold.
Our minds melt together like it's doomsday.
You are not alone, so have no fear.
I know that I'd give my life away!
In times of sorrow, in times of grief.
There's no need for looking.
You just wait for your relief.
In times of sorrow. You kneel down and you pray.
There's no need for fighting.
Our instincts will lead the way.
Don't fear!
Through the leaves the cold wind whispers.
Sparkling thin rays of moonlight.
My arms will keep you warm.
So close your eyes. I'll be near you.
Sleep... sweet... dreams...
