Track Name: Combustion
I can´t shove aside these feelings, building up inside me.
Ain´t no holding down this shit. It´s in my veins.
Can´t resist the beast that´s unleashed. This chain is broken.
This fury is headed your way. Hatred will come.
You wonder what the fuck you´ve done. You´re looking at me.
Your mind soon will be lightened up. I´ve got something for you.
Gallons of angry fuel will burn your ass to ashes.
Reaching for your hand to save you from the fire. Now you´ve turned your back to me.
I feel betrayed.
Beware, the fire will burn you down.
You wonder what the fuck you´ve done. You´re looking at me.
Your mind soon will be lightened up. I´ve got something for you
Beware, the fire will burn you down.
Gallons of angry fuel will burn your ass to ashes.
Gallons of angry fuel will burn your ass to dust.
Once you were the one who always kept the peace between two parties.
That time´s long gone. Countdown to ignition has begun.
Gallons of angry fuel will flow and burn your ass to ashes and dust.
Gallons of angry fuel will flow and burn your ass to ashes.
Beware the fire will burn you down.
Can´t resist the beast that´s unleashed. This chain is broken.
This fury is headed your way. Hatred will come.
Gallons of angry fuel will burn your ass to dust.
Gallons of angry fuel will burn your ass to ashes.
Track Name: Self-Inflicted Pain
Self-inflicted pain causes all my suffering. Mutilating my own soul. Let it bleed.
So far from serenity. Craving for serenity inside.
Just another chapter of my life. Writing on dark pages to complete this…
The core of my heart revealed. The quest of my life to conquer.
There’s no sense just skip this passage. How much more shit can you handle.
There’s no sense just skip this passage. How much, how long, what more.
Self-inflicted pain causes all my suffering. Mutilating my own soul. Let it bleed.
Cut myself to bleed out the poison. Sorrow contaminates me.
Just another chapter in my life. Writing on dark pages to complete this.
The core of my heart revealed. The quest of my life to conquer.
There’s no sense just skip this passage. How much more shit can you handle.
There’s no sense just skip this passage. How much, how long, what more.
Sorrow. Serenity. Suffer. So far away from your heart.
This world has fallen. There is no healing.
This world has fallen to pieces. There is no healing these wounds.
Self-inflicted pain. Causes all my suffering. Mutilating my own soul. Let it bleed to death.
It will be reborn.
Track Name: Dead Crops
Now, the season´s changed. Dark days have come.
The sun is covered by blankets of fat grey evil clouds.
Times of greatness are gone and replaced by doom.
And it´s all over now. It´s slipping away. All you have is washed away.
The debts that were made back in the days. They are waiting to be repaid.
The fields, the seeds, the men and the machine.
You´ll lose your head. Take a look at the sky. There´s a storm and it´s coming your way.
Riding through acres of wasted fields. Crossroads without warning signs to show you the way.
No one to point the way. No one at all to show you the way.
Thunder and lightning are coming your way.
Dead crops all around everywhere you stare leaving you in despair.
Without a vision and a plan you´ll manage to ruin this. No hands needed to harvest what´s dead.
The harvest is ruined.
Riding through acres of wasted fields. Crossroads without warning signs to show you the way.
No one to point the way.
You´ll lose your head. Take a look at the sky. There´s a storm and it´s coming your way.
The debts that were made. They are waiting to be repaid.
The fields, the seeds, the men and the machine.
Dead crops all around everywhere you stare leaving you in despair. Without a vision and a plan. Words echo in your head. You´ll reap what you sow. You´ll reap what you sow. You´ll reap…
Now, the season´s changed. Dark days are gone.
The sun is forcing the blankets of fat grey evil clouds away. And it´s all over now.
They passed away. Dark days are gone for now. They passed away.
Rays of light, in your life, will shine again.
Track Name: Single Bullet Theory
Despicable acts of terror set this world on fire.
Gather all generals and start a war.
Countless bodies decorate the battle scene. Million miles from home, light years from dignity.
Slaughter the unarmed innocent. Smoke ´m out of their holes.
Gather all generals and start another war.
Bombshells. Gunshots. Landmines. Hand grenades.
See the horror. Don´t even mind. See the horror. Feel nothing inside.
Not that we´re numb or ignorant. We just, just don´t care enough.
Detached opinions. Twisted pictures to manipulate the masses.
Silence.
Countless bodies decorate the battle scene. Miles from home, light years from dignity.
See the horror. Don´t even mind. See the horror. Feel nothing inside.
Not that we´re numb or ignorant. We just, just don´t care enough.
Open your fucking eyes.
Open your eyes and see the truth behind the lies. Coffins aligned in the sand.
Open your eyes and see the truth behind the lies. Sandblasted skulls stare at you.
Open your fucking eyes.
Open your eyes and see the truth behind the lies. Coffins aligned in the sand.
Open your eyes and see the truth behind the lies. Sandblasted skulls stare at you.
Is there a cure for all the leaders that lead us to war. A single bullet to save…
One shot short for salvation.
See the horror. Don´t even mind. See the horror. Feel nothing inside.
Not that we´re numb or ignorant. We just don´t care enough. We just don´t care.
Track Name: Maze of Lies
Choices, choices in my life I have to make to maintain. Slowly moving forward in this cold world.
Can someone hand the map of this maze.
Look around. Searching the answers. Looking for a way to get out.
This game is played with rules that I don´t understand.
You teach me nothing but shit. I have to read between the lines to trace down the truth.
I will never play by your rules. Fuck these dirty tricks and games you play.
A box of filthy lies is what you bring me.
Leaving me speechless. Trying to find the words to make sense, but it´s no use.
Past failures mistakes to make, it´s all part of the game, no need for shame.
You pass me all your sins. Infect me to taint the blood.
I´ll never be like you. Don´t wanna be like this.
I´m too fucking strong anyway.
Destroy the maze of lies you´ve build up.
Truth will come to batter down these walls… Tear down.
I won´t play by your rules. No way. Fuck you. I won´t play by your rules. So fuck you.
Lies. A box of filthy lies is what you bring me. Leaving me speechless.
Trying to find the words to make sense, but it´s no fucking use. No fucking use.
All of what you tell me turns out to be a lie. Lies. Fucking lies.
