Evil untold 03:36
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

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

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

Unborn soul 07:00
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?

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

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
7.
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
8.
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

Faust 05:22
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

Satan 07:53
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
