Track Name: Evil untold
For days we can’t see
The sun in the sky
Smoke covered all things
Turned day into night
Shame came with fire
Devouring dreams
Consuming whole mountains
Burning childs in their sleep

Committed a crime, too heavy this suffering
Hell born on earth, Evil untold

Useless we seem
Confronting this beast
Apocalypse scenes
On us fire feasts
Fed up with rage
From what we have seen
In villages, forests
Flames carried the wind

Heavy this crime for rules and for laws
Hell born on earth, Evil untold

Under blackened skies
Their souls are poisoned from
Evil corrupted them all
Entire lands will fall
Cannot fix this wrong
Would ever be reborn?

Bones will roar inside the dirt
Hell born on earth, Evil untold
Track Name: War of the Gods
I say God demands from us a holy war
I know the way you choose your battle sides
And I know the one, who always makes you decide
Your interest, your only friend
You will step on bodies before the end

Well I see your war is falling upon
The innocent lives of children
And I see your love, a shadow for all
Your crimes are not hidden

But you know that people are not mad like you
So you’re mixing God with your busyness, they do that too
Different religions, different Gods
All I see changing is words

Well I see your war is falling upon
The innocent lives of children
And I see your love, a shadow for all
Your crimes are not hidden
Track Name: Bringer of lies
There is a question in our children’s minds
Stories taught in school
Are changing with the growth of their minds
Depending every time on
Who’s teaching who
Learning what, gaining what and for who?

Bringer of lies
Slain your children’s right for truth
Bringer of lies
The history you teach, a plan of your deceit
Is holding back our youth to walk
enlightenments street
You are the liar, in front of whom truth dies
A funeral pyre burning values and facts
Bringer of lies

But you should know
Your work is whole, still it is hollow
All that is done, echoes for ever
So does your plan, you should thought of never

Learning what, gaining what and for who?
Bringer of lies
Slain your children’s right for truth
Bringer of lies
The history you teach, a plan of your deceit
Is holding back our youth to walk
enlightenments street
You are the liar, in front of whom truth dies
A funeral pyre burning values and facts
Bringer of lies
Liar, rapist of history
You will face fire
Cut your lying tongue in front of me
Bringer of lies
Track Name: Unborn soul
There’s a woman in pain
On a bed with her legs constrained
There in agony she waits
An unborn soul to deliver in fate

And so this scene is going on and on and on
The day our souls are brought are clean and white
as snow

My unborn soul, you got my
My unborn soul

After deliverance life starts with her game
Every experience leaves soul with a stain

My unborn soul, you got my
My unborn soul

And I was taught many stories of fiction and truth
And I was told what is right, what’s wrong and
what’s true
Only one thing no one showed me, can’t stand
without whom
To be good, to be evil I know
How to be me I should

My unborn soul, you got my
My unborn soul

The time will come someone will take this
burden off
He comes in a sudden ripping every stain off souls
Can retrieve the unborn state for all
This friend is death, but has a question before
What do you want the most?
Is it peace, or the life that you lost?
Track Name: The four plagues
I know the four plagues always dwell
inside society
They call themselves foundations
Let me explain you to see
The one you know from politics
Promises never keeps
The other has control of the streets
Power over safety

They fight, each night, all night
They suck the blood of every Godsent right

The third controls your mind
Constant propaganda
Your eyes fixed on the screen
Seeing only what comforts him
The forth is judging you
Plays God before you
Or he promises to set you free
Even if you’re guilty

They fight, each night, all night
They suck the blood of every Godsent right

Four plagues in society dwell
above our human rights
They claim to be our keepers of peace
Who’s absent every night
Track Name: The old man's story
I heard from an old man
Rumors about a plant
Abandoned for years
Thought it would poison every mind
Poison every mind…

But then they remembered
No wrong it done in past
And so then, the old man
Looked behind the leafs of that plant
Behind the leafs, inside the plant…

And then the old man said:
You always sooth my pain
You always bring inside the rain
To wash away the filth that stains my soul
For this tree contains
Power to balance between worlds
Carried inside me with the smoke, oh the smoke

I tell you only this one son
I made my mind
The day that I won’t smoke this plant
I’ll drop down and die
Track Name: Under darkness veil
We should never cross our roads in chance
like that
You should never leave your tongue
ahead of your mind

You gotta get lost
To live tomorrow
Gotta get lost

And still you know that you are wrong,
but slave of your pride
You keep on saying the wrong things and lie
after lie after lie after lie

You gotta get lost
To live tomorrow
Gotta get lost

There‘s a box in every person
That should not be opened
Another self is buried deep inside
Under darkness veil

You gotta get lost
To live tomorrow
Gotta get lost
Track Name: The art of alchemy
The more I wanna see my spirit to be free
There he is confusing things
Cutting every bit of me
Wants to destroy what he doesn’t like,
but even the rest
He twists them to be in his image
Until I won’t recognize myself

He tries to break me, scavenger of my soul
He tries to make me, change art into gold

But I remember bands,
he couldn’t alter or force at all
He tried to bury only to fail,
their meeting with the world
Still alone he is in charge
His greed one day will swallow him
I chose the difficult path
But time will lead me ahead of him

He tries to break me, scavenger of my soul
He tries to make me, change art into gold
He tries to deceive me
I’ m not a rat to lead with your pipe
You’re an alchemist
Burring gold and selling led

I tell you this asshole, won’t play it your way
And I’m pretty sure you don’t like what I say
As long as you keep on choosing
people’s directions
Someone will be there, shaking your ground
Track Name: Faust
You decided to stop misery
Consuming your life
So you‘re building American dreams
That’s all in your mind

Wake the night up from your screams
You think nothing

For a house and a car
You sign your life enslaved
Compared to you fucker, Faust got a deal

Imagine if all act like you
A loan in the bank
Bankers will own all homes soon
Few people controlling your land

For a house and a car
You sign your life enslaved
Compared to you fucker, Faust got a deal

Blind me ambition, I should foresee
I cannot back up on this one way street
Digits and numbers veiled my mind
No escape exit for me to find

For a house and a car
You sign your life enslaved
Compared to you fucker, Faust got a deal
Track Name: Satan
God’s creation before the birth of man
Overwhelming grace and beauty elsewhere not found
Placed on zenith His greatest angels of all
One of whom was the morning star of dawn
Such perfection he spoke directly above
Doxologies his Lord with his entire presence

Oh ancient sunrise, Lord created man
A life in His image, bowed to His Son
Commanded angels bow before
His Son and man whom so much He loved
But Lucifer felt wounded in his pride
His Son and man should surely die
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God
All creation and life is mine to own

Vanity, pride you found your way
Sin inside Lucifer for the first day
Hooked other angels onto his tail
Conquer the Heaven, be God in His place
Be God in His place
War in the heaven as never before
He became Satan raging in war
Sin cannot stand in presence of God
Satan like lightning falling from sky

Oh, it didn’t end this way
He was mad and found his prey
Adam shouldn’t in Heaven stay
Tempted man in everyway

And where could plant his seed
Than Eve’s fragile ego
She’ll fall just like me
I will unleash my evil
Adam follows up
His love will make him fall

For he knows Eve will die
And he will share her fate foreknown
Now you man, will never enter heaven
You’ll die and become sand
My evil in (God’s) creation

Eons later maybe seconds later maybe
Christ took man’s place in this world of temptation
He gave His life in this world to lead man inside the doors
Of heaven and ravens wept for their defeat
The devil who accused our brothers before God
Defeated (shameful) as first enemy of God and man
Archangel you defiled your sanctuaries
