Track Name: Usual Threats
It’s about to arrive, I know and panic comes
I’m sure they will come and I’m not feeling fine
Little nails wounding my state of mind
Toxic clouds coming from time to time

Painful words of hate
Trying to draw my (fucking) fate

Unstoppable fear running through my veins
I know the end is always the same

Subtle menace, daily fear, I can’t believe
The words are paralyzing me
Many doubts, many doubts, when they will hit?
I can’t stand, no more, the usual threats

When I know there’s no way for a happy end
The best option is try to change myself
Every message is a kick to the hope
Another not for my neck rope

Painful words of hate
Trying to draw my (fucking) fate

It’s not about monsters, not about war
This is in inside my head, it’s worst

Subtle menace, daily fear, I can’t believe
The words are paralyzing me
Many doubts, many doubts, when they will hit?
I can’t stand, no more, the usual threats

Rotten felling
Deep within
The line between love and hate is thin…it’s thin…it’s very…
THIN!

Subtle menace, daily fear, I can’t believe
The words are paralyzing me
Many doubts, many doubts, when they will hit?
I can’t stand, no more, the usual threats

I can’t stand…The chains binding me
I can’t stand…Slavery in my head
I can’t stand…This is tormenting me
I can’t stand…The usual threats
Track Name: (Self) Destruction
Blaming everyone but I should blame myself
Who’s responsible of me? Me and no one else
Blaming everything blinded by my own hate
Planting seeds of anger without finding

The exit gate
(the final gate)

Blaming everyone when the true guilt is within
Destroyer of myself, that’s what I have been.
Trying to live with the enemies by my side
Blaming everything, fighting my own fight

I kill what makes me breath,
I hate! And the hate hits back to me
The grave I dig is my own
I hurt! And the worst is that I know

My hart pumps hate and the blood spills my face
Like the scorpion I kill what makes me live
I write my future, with poisoned ink
I can’t stop spitting against the wind

I kill what makes me breath,
I hate! And the hate hits back to me
The grave I dig is my own
I hurt! And the worst is that I know

I hate! I kill what makes me breath,
I hate! And the hate hits back to me
I hurt! The grave I dig is my own
I hurt! And the worst is that I know

Why do I turn white …
Into black, wrong, fake and down?

Can I fight against my nature?
Can I fight against my fate?
Can I fight against my nature?
Can I fight against my fate?
Can I fight against my nature?
Can I fight against my fate?
Can I fight? Can I fight?
I wanna fight against my hate!

Blaming everyone but I should blame myself
Who’s responsible of me? Me and no one else
Blaming everything blinded by my own hate
Planting seeds of anger without finding

My mind is rotting, my spirit is heathen
My soul is burning and I can't be free.
Blaming others is not the solution
Because the only guilty is me.
Track Name: 111
Can you feel the strong smell that’s coming from inside?
A creature was born when another died

Once you’re in you won’t come out, this ritual is our bound
Frantic phrases at the speed of sound

In a shelter, in our refuge, you have to assume
Shredding notes is what we do
Leave behind your daily routine, back to the scene
…spread the fire with gasoline

If you’re looking for noise, and a place to hide, a hole of fun, the underground
Take no shit and come around, you’ll find us at the one, one, one
If you smell alcohol and the adrenaline flows, we’re here, where all began
Take no shit and come around, you’ll find us at the one, one, one

At the ONE ONE ONE!

Let’s start the second round in our playground
No more stand by, burn the town

Breaking walls is what we want ‘cause it’s the right
Exciting things blow our minds

No more search, now you know, don’t you roam
Come and make yourself at home
Come and join this place of sin, you’ve never been
And be prepared for this killing machine

If you’re looking for noise, and a place to hide, a hole of fun, the underground
Take no shit and come around, you’ll find us at the one, one, one
If you smell alcohol and the adrenaline flows, we’re here, where all began
Take no shit and come around, you’ll find us at the one, one, one
Track Name: Blackmailed Existence
Trapped with no conditions, in a constant rage
A nice view from our crystal cage
We all born with an expiring date
Our fate is made…
Death is pulling hard, our strings
Living nightmares we think are dreams
We’re pushed to what the future brings
Starting to die…

…Since the moment we are thrown into this world

We’re force to live and we live marked
We’re given a death sentence on the first day
A chemical process tears our body apart
Nothing’s free, we’ll pay
What we are, poor banished children
Since the beginning our future is written
In this play we’ve never bitten
Starting to die…

…Since the moment we are thrown into this world
We are not asked at all
…At all!!!

Do not show resistance!
We are here for just a moment
Do not show resistance!
We all live a blackmailed existence

Like a handful of dust before a storm
Becoming ash after we are born

Seeking meanings
Wondering who we are
Seeking senses
Chasing false truths

Do not show resistance!
We are here for just a moment
Do not show resistance!
We all live a blackmailed existence

Trapped with no conditions, in a constant rage
A nice view from our crystal cage
We all born with an expiring date
Our fate is made…
Death is pulling hard, our strings
Living nightmares we think are dreams
We’re pushed to what the future brings
Starting to die…

…Since the moment we are thrown into this world

…Since the moment we are thrown into this world
We are not asked at all
…At all!!!

Do not show resistance!
We are here for just a moment
Do not show resistance!
We all live a blackmailed existence

Rusting existence!
Dying existence!
Track Name: Back To Reality
Back from a long journey, crossing the ocean
Eyes are open wide, now we see the truth
Reality has punched us hard in the face
Where’s the end? Just a matter of days

Will be ever out… of the hole?
Maybe our place is in the threshold.
As we leave behind a long sea
Welcome back to the fucking reality

Back from a long journey, we don’t see the light
Wondering if what we do, is wrong or right
After the land where human sacrifices were made
Once again at home, trying to find the gate

Will be ever out… of the hole?
Maybe our place is in the threshold.
As we leave behind a long sea
Welcome back to the fucking reality

Facing the true but…where is it?
Asking forever where we are.
Who possess the truth right now?
Everyone has an own way out.

Do! Don’t do! Attack! Reject!
Not as brothers side by side
All! Against! All! Instead
Time arrives for us to die

Which is the reality?
Which is the reality?
Nobody knows the reality!

Was this a product of our imagination?
Which part was real and which a dream?
When and why we fucked ourselves?
Everything was a nightmare within!

Will be ever out… of the hole?
Maybe our place is in the threshold.
As we leave behind a long sea
Welcome back to the fucking reality

Will be ever out… of the hole?
Maybe our place is in the threshold.
As we leave behind a long sea
Welcome back to the fucking reality
Track Name: Prostituted City
Bitch! Don’t you see? The city has became a
Bitch! Now we all are sold to the
Rich! This ain’t what used to be
Trash in backyard, cult the power

A plague has come to town, now we’re clowns
A false paradise, barbarians are the new flies
One step further means, closer to the edge
A second Sodom’s here, a beautiful fake

The city bows to the powers that be
Should we all fall on our knees?

Siege! Don’t you see? The city now is under
Siege! We’re raped puppets on the
Streets! Hide the reek away
Show you best smile or you’d better don’t stay

Kill the bitch that does not look at your face
Face the invaders and don’t be their slave
A new master has come to rule the place
The town is down and lives the last days of grace

The city bows to the powers that be
Should we all fall on our knees?
We don’t wanna fall down to our knees
Sacrificed in the altar of the green greed

Aggressions, obsessions, all kinds of perversions
Harlot city, stolen city, we no longer fit it
You say “amused”, I say “abused”, don’t you see we’re ambushed?
Is this where we belong?

The city used to be, a city of prodigies
But now we are seeing some tragedies

The city used to be, a city of forgiveness
From far they came and spread the sickness

One step, one step further, one step closer to the edge
A new master has come to rule the place
The town is down and lives the last days of grace

The city bows to the powers that be
Should we all fall on our knees?
We don’t wanna fall down to our knees
Sacrificed in the altar of the green greed
Track Name: The End Of The War
Smoke and fire have painted the walls
People see in black and white
Death and pain have painted the souls
Enemies no more in sight

The worst
The worst is still to come
The worst
The burial of the son

Ruins everywhere, heathen hearts
Now there is much more to regret
To whom belong the fallen ones?
No justice no peace, don’t forget

The End
The End
End
The End

Dignity rots for the
bastards of the gods
A life hell sent
what’s the feeling at the end?
At the end of the wars
Everything just starts

Sadness or rage?
Impossible to turn the page
Reckoning day, honor the failed, it’s time to pay
We can’t see the way

Sadness or rage?
Impossible to turn the page
Reckoning day, honor the failed, it’s time to pay
There’s nothing to say!

When the wounded will find the peace?
When their lives are full of shame
Afterlife? What is this?
Don’t you think all seems the same?

The End
The end
End
The end

Dignity rots for the
bastards of the gods
A life hell sent
what’s the feeling at the end?
At the end of the wars
Everything just starts

Sadness or rage?
Impossible to turn the page
Reckoning day, honor the failed, it’s time to pay
We can’t see the way

Sadness or rage?
Impossible to turn the page
Reckoning day, honor the failed, it’s time to pay
There’s nothing to say!

What does hurt the most?
What died or what remains?
The blood of those we lost
The pain runs through the veins

What does hurt the most?
What died or what remains?
The blood of those we lost
The pain runs through the veins

Sadness or rage?
Impossible to turn the page
Reckoning day, honor the failed, it’s time to pay
We won’t to get THE FUCK AWAY!

At the end…
At the end…
At the end…
Everthying
Starts!
Track Name: In This Valley Of Tears
Are there enough eyes of mercy?
Towards us to extinct our pain?
We spread anger, we’re dying for years
In this long exile, in this valley of tears

Our mind has limits, hands are tight
To whom we send up our sighs?
We spread hate, we use our fears
We cry and weep in this valley of tears

Through the years, on this parole they call life
Day after day, waiting for the night
Through decades, in this mourning, are we alive?
As we keep being buried by the sands of time

Our dreams are just dreams
And we just catch what live brings
Standing upon this stone, our stone
Are we more than the flesh and bone?

Our mind has limits, our hands are tight
To whom we send up our sighs?
We spread hate, we use our fears
We cry and weep in this valley of tears

Through the years, on this parole they call life
Day after day, waiting for the night
Through decades, in this mourning they call life
As we keep being buried by the sands of time

Roaming forever, this path of agony
You don’t know but it’s never or never!
Trying to catch false dreams of liberty
In this valley of tears,
In this path of agony
Liberty!

Through the years, on this parole they call life
Day after day, waiting for the night
Through decades, in this mourning they call life
As we keep being buried by the sands of time

Roaming forever, this path of agony
You don’t know but it’s never or never!
Trying to catch false dreams of liberty
In this valley of tears,
In this path of agony
Liberty!
Track Name: Before It's Too Late
Late at night in bed in the heart of darkness
I can’t overcome the fears,
my spirit’s blackened
My body still lives, but my soul dies
Late at night in bed,
when demons… arise

Eyes are watching me

When I lost myself? Distress is pulling me under
Day after day after day,
it becomes harder
Please someone help me, I’m not fine
Please someone help me,
I’m losing my… mind

My hope is disappearing

Kill it! Smash it! Beat it!
Your fear should be weaker than your hate
Kill it! Rip it! Burn it!
Do it before it’s too late

My understanding now is heading nowhere
Distress is eating me alive,
is it worthwhile?
Can‘t I see solution for this? It is just there
Late at night in bed,
anger comes… wild

Why can’t I stop suffering?

Kill it! Smash it! Beat it!
Your fear should be weaker than your hate
Kill it! Rip it! Burn it!
Do it before it’s too late

All my struggle is in vain
To avoid the feast of woodworms in my brain
I can’t release from this terrible…
Pain

Late at night in bed in the heart of darkness
I can’t overcome the fears,
my spirit’s blackened
My body still lives, but my soul dies
Late at night in bed,
when demons… arise

Eyes are watching me

Kill it! Smash it! Beat it!
Your fear should be weaker than your hate
Kill it! Rip it! Burn it!
Do it before it’s too late
Track Name: Through The Cracks
When the unconscious world appears
When you thought the pain was forgotten
When you look at the eyes of the fears
You realize the trauma is not rotten

Random feelings, daily suffering
Random thoughts, why this happens?
Fill the cracks, no retribution
Feel the scars, only solution

Mental punishments from time to time
Coming again and again to the head
Beneath the skin, deep inside the mind
You realize life becomes death

Hidden sides don’t make me be
Here the ignorance is not bliss.
What the hell happened to me?
I wish I could get through this

Through the cracks!
Through the cracks!
Through the cracks!
Through the cracks… The sorrow sucks

When a phantom of the past appears
When an ancient sin is unspoken
When you are paralyzed by the fears
You realize your soul is broken

Random feelings, daily suffering
Random thoughts, why this happens?
Fill the cracks, no retribution
Feel the scars, only solution

Through the cracks!
Through the cracks!
Through the cracks!
Through the cracks… The sorrow sucks

The scar festers pain, festers truth
The pain seeps… through the crack
The scar festers pain, festers truth
The suffering of the past… is back

Through the cracks!
Through the cracks!
Through the cracks!
Through the cracks!
Through the cracks!
Through the cracks!
Through the cracks!
Through the cracks!
