Track Name: The hunter becomes the prey
Greed is your middle name and gold’s above your pride
I see you capable of stealing candy from a child
Your lust for more and more has turned you into beast
Tricking fools to sink them in the depths of the abyss

Confidence in your self should be less

Dice will roll the same for all, prognosis crash while aces fall
Arrogance will make you pay
When the hunter becomes the prey

You egoistic fool you brag about your wealth
Can achieve all by yourself and none is needed help
When your luck starts turning black you do not realize
Then you cry for help to those who you drowned in demise

Confidence in your self should be less

Dice will roll the same for all, prognosis crash while aces fall
Arrogance will make you pay
When the hunter becomes the prey

Like a cat is hunting mice and falls upon a bulldog
Now you descent into loss, as the dice roll

The hunter becomes the prey
Track Name: A sign of fire
There are things that may happen to earth
Death could come from above
Things that can to extinction give birth
Your illusion of safety in fire will burn

Rising from below
Ashes fall like snow

For hours we see a sign of fire
Crossing the sky, lighting up the pyre
And it touches the earth apocalypse
Vapor and dust, the sun eclipsed
And there’s nowhere to hide
Nowhere to go
Poison in the sky
Destruction is born

For hours we see a sign of fire
Crossing the sky, lighting up the pyre
And it hits the earth, it’s raining stones
The dying bury the dead on their own

Acid rain and toxic sea
Hunger, disease, agony
As you watch all kinds of life extinct


All that you knew has ended violently
If someone is to survive will have to live beneath
Beneath the earth for all their lives, hiding in shelters deep
For what we used to call our home is lost for many years
Track Name: Death ride
Each night we ramble and follow our passions brought into light
Don’t care if you think we are hollow, can’t stand your conventional life
Your conventional life - Your excuse of a life

Like beasts unleashed from the cage, running fury consuming the night
Doesn’t seem to be fading with age, we are on a death ride

And love can't keep walking with me, no lust can match her, alright
One thing is left to relief me, my stories upon the night skies
This is my relief - My will, my belief

Like beasts unleashed from the cage, running fury consuming the night
Doesn’t seem to be fading with age, we are on a death ride

And I remember friends who died before the dawn
But I don’t care cause I’m drunk too, I’m gonna ride on my own

Like beasts unleashed from the cage, running fury consuming the night
Doesn’t seem to be fading with age, we are on a death ride

I’m riding with death by my side, we ‘re riding with death by our side
Track Name: The devil got his soul
Ever since he was a child
Only one thing appealed to his mind
It was some music, heavy and wild
Superior than all he could find

But they don’t understand
Say it fills with evil his head
No they don’t understand
Say it fills with evil his head

Then they stated to blame is his youth
Since they couldn’t remember their own
Tried to convince him with other than truth
But as he aged his passion would grow

But they don’t understand
Say it fills with evil his head
No they don’t understand
Say it fills with evil his head

The boy is possessed
The boy is owned by the devil

Metal grew so deep inside him
So deep he even could be magnetized
When he was playing forces bent around him
By his music ears were hypnotized

Leave him, leave him alone
The devil got his soul
Leave him alone
The devil got his soul

The boy is possessed
The boy is owned by the devil
Track Name: Blind
Ongoing battle for rights and freedom
For justice must prevail at all cost
Always a king who wants one more kingdom
No matter who it wins the battle is lost

No matter what you call it
Democracy or a hoax
No matter who you vote for
One is behind the calls

And I might fight for the king or I might fight for a cause
And I might fight just for me or I might fight for you all
And I might win or just loose only this one is for sure
The shadows will conquer it all

For in the days that we live in
You cannot see it at all
A room with hundreds of mirrors
And one is behind the walls

They will make you think that you are fine
And you’re free when you’re staying in line
The illusion of freedom is mine
Like the fool who is leaded by blind

Blind thought I was free
Blind I could not see
Blind that fool is me
Blind I cannot see

I tell you it might never stop
For it is buried in our hearts
The need to dominate the land
And many fought for pride and rights
But when the throne was right in sight
The lust for power rose inside their minds
And everyone is leaded by the blind
Track Name: Deceiver
You look like hypnotized when
You stare right in my eyes and
You’re seeking out impression
Instead you’ll gain depression

You change yourself according circumstances
Confusing none but you, alone in the end

Lies separate you from your goal
They are the lies you tell and not the ones you’re told

You seem like mesmerized in
The passion of my madness
You dance inside this vortex
Equalizing through deception

Change yourself according circumstances
Confusing none but you, alone in the end

Lies separate you from your goal
They are the lies you tell and not the ones you’re told
Deceiver

Your insecurity my friend, the black hole in your heart extends
Will never know yourself, trapped inside this growing maze
Deceiving just yourself
Deceiver
Deceiving just yourself

??????????????????????????????
Makes more sense to me than your blistering lies
Yes, you can fool someone maybe once or twice
But even fools will understand your disguise
Deceiver
Track Name: Metal, blood and the road
His life has come to the point
That he has to leave to be free
And now he rides like the wind
On his own no water’s too deep

He rides and he rides on his own
Yeah he always rides on his own

Under the sun, through the rain
In the cold and the heat he sustains
Always goes on, he never breaks
Waiting some truth to be revealed

Searching for something to fill the hole in his soul
And he has to find it alone before his return

I don’t know what happened to him
All I know it could be these two things
Either he understood what he loved
Has been waiting all these years in his home
Or after chasing his death through the storms
Year after year after year he came near
And then one day he just caught him in glory
Metal, blood and the road – end of story
Track Name: Riot
Grand false, the wolf is protecting the sheep
You give the scum the power of force
A young child is killed by police

Bullets flying from the barrel of gun
Hit an innocent child and the riots began
Fire shot from the barrel of gun
Burned an innocent kid and the riots began
Anger raging in the streets and in my mind
While the cops spread a covering lie
That the boy was mean and had to die

Street riots unleashed from all citizens free
Not only punks, no anarchists
Fathers and sons burning the city

Bullets flying from the barrel of gun
Hit an innocent child and the riots began
Fire shot from the barrel of gun
Burned an innocent kid and the riots began

Riot raging against police
We’re fighting your system of greed
Track Name: Multiple personality disorder
The man you seek baby ain’t here anymore
And don’t tell me again I Am the one you want
The one you were with these couple of days has left you with me
But I Am another man and I can’t stand you, can’t you see?

My mind is like a roulette
Guess where the ball will stop
My mind is like a roulette
And you don’t know me no more
I got a roulette for brain
Guess where the ball will end
I got a roulette for brain
You won’t be here in the end

Like before it could be me and I Am now and I may be
This is the situation multiple personality

My mind is like a roulette
Guess where the ball will stop
My mind is like a roulette
And you don’t know me no more
Track Name: Bad woman
The day he met her first
He thought she was the woman of his life
For her love he felt the thirst
Blinded, stoned he asked her to be his wife, oh no

Woman bad you chose my friend
You got a bad woman and an ugly end

He never hear his friends now
Though they tell him every day now
And they don’t know how to make him see
That bitch is sucking his life, she’s paying with a kiss

Bad woman paying with a kiss
Bad woman always pays with a kiss

Fireworks of love fade away
And the clouds are leaving his head
Now he sees what the others were telling
Woman you’re rotting and now you start smelling

Bad woman paying with a kiss
Bad woman always pays with a kiss
