Track Name: Mind Coercion
There are moments, when even to the sober eye of reason,
the world of our sad humanity may assume the semblance to hell.
Countless hideous absolutions has been pronounced,
cold decrees designed to make us forget all progress.

Capitalism, the fertile ground for fascism unbound.
Maintaining patriarchal tradition as xenophobic hatred rises to hide social conflict,
everybody has turn reactionary as they feed us their shit.

WE HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE – how can we not realize we’re so wrong.
DON’T LET THEM CRUSH THE LINK - divided and dishonored we are lost.
WELCOME TO HELL.

Oh this can’t be real. Anguish has taken us over.
Overwhelming, suffocating us.
Countless hideous absolutions has been pronounced,
cold decrees designed to make us forget all progress. X2

WE HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE – how can we not realize we’re so wrong.
DON’T LET THEM CRUSH THE LINK - divided and dishonored we are lost.

Wait to divulge the end and let them all burn.
Track Name: A Wretched Domain
This wretched domain
Built with the coagulated bloods and the back bones
Of those who fought once
Spreading their terrific propaganda and false truths
Devoring each one of us, slowly, like it was a cancer
Crushing every last will with their national pride,
To make sure you'll shut the fuck up when they'll strike again
But we cannot endure this any longer
And we'll keep fighting for what IS the right cause
Far away from their predominance of hatred, violence and militarization

DISGUST

Flesh of the damned will feed their spawn, strengthen their Influence
forcing us to kneel down before them, in vain
But we cannot endure this any longer
And we'll keep fighting for what IS the right cause
Far away from their predominance of hatred, violence and militarization
Each word" we'll spread", rings out like gunshots (gunshots)
And daggers in our eyes "tipped with" the venom of anger (anger)
As our tears will streak and hide our face
INNER ANGER, HAS GROWN OVER ITSELF X2
Each word we'll spread, rings out like gunshots
And daggers in our eyes tipped with the venom of anger
And we'll keep fighting for our liberation
Our liberation.
Track Name: Depths of Deceit
And before I beg, I'll steal. A destroyed reason
The sound of the downfall on my trembling lips
They Lied about heaven, there never was a Hell
Run for my life,
Than between of "good" and "courage"
There is a "rescue me" in color of blood
Despite the feeling that the end approaches finally
It beats brave, my zealous little heart
Despite the feeling that the end approaches again
DEPTHS OF DECEIT
Now the reflex camera replaces your Bible
Better believe your own eyes than the priest prattle X2
I've never seen them act like this
trying to stop, to sabotage us
but our only weapons are the guns of changement
And the hunt for them will be brief
DEPTHS OF DECEIT
Now the reflex camera replaces your Bible
Better believe your own eyes than the priest prattle X2
Sick with anger, we have completely lost our minds
Now the wolves are on the loose to see the blood
Track Name: In Loathsome Avarice
Raised by emotionless screens, blinded and deafened with years,
Finally deprived of empathy. Everything is so cold inside.
Apathy entrenched and the absence of meaning
Divided we fall, divided we’ll stay.
Mourning the loss of icons, giving them all away.
Fouling ourselves while we cannot even experience real emotion.
Little comfort, society’s reward. Don’t need, don’t want something else.
We remain bound in unfathomable indifference.
There is no soul left here to save
This is our narrow little lives, this is self-isolation
In loathsome avarice, we are condemned.
Walled in by waves of deafening silence
Where does this angst come from ?
Human connections, a pretext for trade relations.
We’ll be the stillborn children of a dream dead already,
We’ll be the countless sleepless nights, the obscene reality.
Little comfort, society’s reward. Don’t need, don’t want something else.
We remain bound in unfathomable indifference.
There is no soul left here to save
This is our narrow little lives, this is self-isolation
In loathsome avarice, we are condemned (we are condemned.)
Can’t close my eyes on a world that nurtures apathy like it was a virtue. (x4)
Track Name: Outrageous
Using many aliases, scammed and cold-bloodedly
murdered his way across all the continents.
He left behind a wife and children.
Dead and buried under the floorboards, they all were.
Then across the world he wed the lovely ;
And, once again he left his wife in a torment of gruesome violence
under the floor reduced to an endless silence.
They weren't supposed to live for long,
just enough to satisfy his bloodlust and the feelings of superiority.
Sadistic truth, he needed to prove.
Reducing them to meat.
The false, thought he was the greater, and better Hunter.
This lying psychopath thought it was the best to vacate
and found yet another woman to marry.
But, she was meant to be spared to the funest destiny.
As he tried killing again, the small her, shivering and panicking,
in a moment of horror, grew up to the strenght all women have,
and killed the outrageous.
Track Name: Plague Mongers
THEY SHALL ALL SUFFER
Blinded by their magnificient “way of life” and their quest of fame
Losing any sign of ethic or moral, reducing everyone like we were cockroaches.
Plaguemongers, multiplying the excesses of wicked human beings, spreading a disease.
Plaguemongers, a stricken legacy of greed and wealthy, spreading a worldwide disease.
I will not fall victim to you again,
Our lives is ours to control,
Weakness is purely choice terrified or not.
Greedy fucks control their minds, we could free us whereas they can't!
THEY SHALL ALL SUFFER
Crushing us with their thirst for money. Selling weapons to every fucking side, to enjoy the bloody gossip massacre! All to soon no room to breathe so rise your fists, middle finger in the air.
Plaguemongers, multiplying the excesses of wicked human beings, spreading a disease.
Plaguemongers, a stricken legacy of greed and wealthy, spreading a worldwide disease.
Track Name: Abnegate
I can't even tell why your image remain ingrained in my mind.
These insidious thoughts when left alone, revealing all weaknesses within
Sheltered reminescence, a forced coexistance with myself. Bleed me out
Awaken in a cold sweat, feel like nothing will ever replace you
Kill these thoughts now, I will not live on you.
This is my life and I declare my control on it.
Get out of me.
Get out of my head.
Get out of me.
Irrevocable choice of resistance, I chase you away from my mind.
Irrevocable choice of resistance, you’ll never get me again.
Track Name: Martyrdom
The long corridor of the shelter accuse me, and waves of solitude overwhelm me
I just wanted a decent death, without shirking our inevitable end.
I don't want to be the last, condemned to haunt this scorched earth.
Irony of fate. Our existence here is futile and narrow is our perception.
Our end will have no impact.
Finally, what have we change ? From big bang, nothing new.
Nothing lost, nothing gained. Nothing lost, nothing gained. We die alone.
Grey Leviathan blinds the sky, reducing humanity to dust.
Our future is dead. Forever nailed to obscurity.
I lay down, close my eyes, feel that burning liquid through my veins.
I'm leaving this place, accepting my own apocalypse.
Grey Leviathan blinds the sky, reducing humanity to dust.
I accept my own apocalypse. This day is black.
Track Name: By Lawful Violence
They have gone too far, blood starts running through the streets
We are trying to escape, with fear in our chests
Quick on the draw, they're armed to the teeth
Some people break one of their rules and shoot back
And all I see in the streets are nightsticks hitting the skulls of those who just stands right next to me
And I can't endure and watch the corrupted, how can we just allow this aberration?
This is a system built on our misery
To make peace with the police isn't our aim
We bring fuel to the fires to warm our hands
No justice, we want to get out of control, again and again and again.
I see and I feel, the anger of the people, now it's time to charge
And they stand in front of us like a wall, slamming their bats on their shields
From afar, we hear the howl of our fellows
And all I see in the streets are nightsticks hitting the skulls of those who just stands right next to me
And I can't endure and watch the corrupted, how can we just allow this aberration?
And I, I cannot just stand here, and close my eyes to the suffering. I, I cannot, we just cannot leave
Cause now, it's gone out of control.
Out of control.
