Here we stand, At the edge of a sulphuric abyss, A putrid smell vitalizes our skin, Anxious, Deranged, Abandoned in opaque haze, Depressed, Discouraged, Caught in this deserted land. We disavow, our time has come, Our existence had past remedy, To extricate oneself from smothering silence, We distort ourselves to disobey, We can't deny, Nothing's gonna save us from now, We can't deny, We have to follow the path further down. Confess your lies, You can't escape vengeance, Mesmerized by falsified ransom, Palefaced eyes feed on our disguise, A testimony of a withered desire, Trapped in a death zone, Already slaughtered, We’re sinking in the fecal sludge, Never to be found again. Enclosed in despair, Taken in by Elysium, We can't deny, We are taken in by Elysium. We disavow our time has come, Our existence had past remedy, To extricate oneself from smothering silence, We distort ourselves to disobey, We can't deny, Nothing's gonna save us from now We can't deny, We have to follow the path further down. τοῦτο ἄκρον ἐγγὺς εστιν οὖν ἡ βίου και θάνατου αἵρεσις νέμει, αὕτη αἵρεσις ἀφ᾽ ἐνιαυτὸι χίλιοι, ἐνιαυτὸι χίλιοι συν θυμῲ και λυπῇ, αἱ ἱεραὶ ἁμαρτίαι καίουσιν εν πυρῴ. Gaze right in the abyss, Engulfed by a death symphony.

Passing 04:06
Lead me to the end, Of a dying world, Atrophying in pain, The ark is weighing anchor, For a maiden voyage into the dark. Set sails for a journey into the unknown, For a trail that is never leading back, Pay the ferryman for secure crossing, Over the river of the damned, Death overtakes us all, Death walks among us. The sirens are calling, We cannot refuse, As we hear our death symphony, No remedy I’ll fix what has been done, The passing is soon to come. Shed no tears, Nothing to lose, Nothing to fear. So, you take the path of the stillborn. And no constitution will hold you back, Charon’s blind eyes will guide the way, Through the demonic cruise, On the scale pan of inequity, Floating on crimson waves, Wrath is what you've become, Hate is your last beacon. The sirens are calling, We cannot refuse, As we hear our death symphony, No remedy I’ll fix what has been done, The passing is soon to come. Dead man tell no tales. The sirens are calling, We cannot refuse, As we hear our death symphony, No remedy I’ll fix what has been done, The passing is soon to come. The sirens are calling, We cannot refuse, As we hear our death symphony, No remedy I’ll fix what has been done, The passing is soon to come.

Clown 04:15
Greetings to you all, I’m mostly delighted to welcome you to this show, Brace yourself, You won't expect what your eye gonna see, If you may now enter please. Put on your plastic smile, A shallow silhouette, Escape the truth for a while, Hunch up, Step down, Wrench at, The clown, Before you stomp on it, Be sure a dog never forgets. Restless scum, Outlawed by society, Embarrassed, In absence of humanity. Battened with the feces of a condescending kind, Purposely neglected, Left alone inside, A prison cell with no windows, No one knows. Trapped inside, Drowning in melancholia. Put on your plastic smile, A shallow silhouette, Escape the truth for a while, Hunch up, Step down, Wrench at, The clown, Before you stomp on it, Be sure a dog never forgets. Wrest yourself free off the leash, Never gonna be cheaply, Corrupted by the treats, That never mean anything to them, Just the dirt under their nails. They will not hesitate to, Put the razor on your throat, Arrogance makes the cut seem clean. A rabid dog pushed too far in the corner, Raging, Showing one's teeth, Ready to attack, Attack, Attack, Bury your fangs in their neck, Watch them bleed to death. Put on your plastic smile, A shallow silhouette, Escape the truth for a while, Hunch up, Step down, Wrench at, The clown, Before you stomp on it, Be sure a dog never forgets. What do you think will happen? You get what fucking deserve. Rage.

Pandora 04:33
Here we go, I’m Loaded and perfected, Everybody step back, I’m fucking attractive, Never been rejected, I’m the masterpiece that no one wants to challenge, I’m a hellion, godlike subject, I am praiseworthy and I know that I earn it, I take the lead and spit on all you maggots, I will take challenge, I’ll eradicate the vermin. Enveloped in ache, Follow the path of whispers, The path is dictated by the ones paying the most, So tell me what you seek, Tell me what you believe. Overwhelmed by Pandora, You bed your corpse into waste. I sink, I swim, I’m the kind of scum that never gonna win, I am Stillborn, Survive is the only thing I've sworn, I’ll slit your throat, I’ll cut you up, I’ll eat your bones to feed me up, If I only could rewind as I’m rotting in the aftermath. Enveloped in ache, Follow the path of whispers, The path is dictated by the ones paying the most, So tell me what you seek, Tell me what you believe. Overwhelmed by Pandora, I bury your corpse into waste, I hate you, I hate you. Enveloped in ache, Our life’s determined by whispers, What do we have to believe, What do we have to esteem, What do we have to redeem, What can we do to be cleansed.

If someone’s falling down, You won't dare to pick them up, The infants rotting on the ground, Crushed by the march of penitent, Unresting whips lacerating their skin, Ruthlessly command the cattle drive, A densely packed mass ready for demise, Force them into the cathedral of death, Imprisoned behind the gates of hell. Black rain falling from the sky, Shattering skulls, Your hope is futile, The slaughter is about to begin, The cleaning inferno is closing in. They bow to humiliation, Disseized of their dignity, Red irons cauterize their skin, As the caravan of misery trudges towards the last circle. Armageddon, The reign’s lost and won, No reincarnation, The catharsis fails to appear. Black rain falling from the sky, Shattering skulls, Your hope is futile, The slaughter is about to begin, The cleaning inferno is closing in. ὁ κόσμος δαιμονίζοται, νῦν δὲ οὗτος τελευτήσει Burned, Alive in a raging crucible, Skinned on the blood altar, Disemboweled, appeal to the beast. Carnage done.

Tonight, you watch the ceiling moving again, Laying on your back the limbs pinned to the ground, The vaccine will not ease the pain as they promised, As the tireless creatures are coming for you again. Crave for the sun
, The Vivisection is inevitable, Waiting for your turn, Begging for your life, Like Frogs in a vase. Inescapable, 
Fortified by the lies of your vengeance, Irresistible, 
Open your mouth to welcome the blasphemy, Your moral starts to fade, By the look of the knife, A hundred raging eyes, 
Lust for your body to Subside. It is no man
, It is no beast
, It will not sleep
, Sucked through the kaleidoscope, A bloody eagle
, Dissected to raise. 
Craving for the sun, 
The Vivisection is inevitable, Waiting for your turn, Begging for your life, 
Like Frogs in a vase. Flesh
, Bones
, Examination
, Your life lies in their claws, Waiting for annihilation, Death
, Fear
, Controlled Putrefaction
, Your guts will petrify
, When they are coming for you. Craving for the sun, 
The Vivisection is inevitable, Waiting for your turn, Begging for your life
, Like Frogs in a vase.

Blackened 04:16
They came here to heal, They came here to break the silence, A testimony of a ruined asylum, A resurrected anesthesia, Too young to understand, Too young to recreate, Putrid by demonic intentions, Another soul uselessly sold. Harassed. Don’t worry they will take the lead, They will dissemble everything you have ever dared believe, They’ll leave you handcuffed, Blindfolded, Whipped, Scarfaced, Disgraced, Dumped below the surface. Blacken the horizon, Escape the shame, Primed with violence, Do not refrain, Behead the tyrants, Is the only way, So open your eyes and welcome, The end of all days. Let’s turn your misery to a happy end, No need to question cause you won't understand. Righteous men do righteous things, Convince yourself take a deep breath, A tissue makes it work, Forget all what you have learned. Deformation, It can be done, Take another run, Toxication, Even it bursts, It won't be hurt, It’s not distributed, Outrage, Outrage, Violence, Atrocity. Blacken the horizon, Escape the shame, Primed with violence, Do not refrain, Behead the tyrants, Is the only way, So open your eyes and welcome, The end of all days, A breed, A spawn of disgusting scum, A vessel ready to be filled, With contagion.

Winter 04:34
You’re floating through atmospheric haze, An astronaut leaving the exosphere, Carried away between time and space, Leaving behind everything near. Morituri, serve him well, Come to me my son, Let’s play a game, It just hurts in the beginning, You won’t regret it. Sharp fangs flashing through the night, A hungry wolf has to feed, Condemned by its grief, Tired of keeping up the formalities, This blond-haired boy, Is young fresh meat. Was einst war ist nun fern, So warm und nah und doch so fremd. Forsaken, repulsive, dismissed you can’t stop hating, No chance for your release, Flood the banks with disgust. Trapped behind hidden bars, Shackled to the shambles, You try to disable your mind, Drowning in the bloodbath, You swallow what is given, Trying to stop the vomiting, The first one is almost gone, Now it's your turn to sacrifice. Locked inside a deserted cabin, You hear them creeping around, No latch will keep them out. Was einst war ist nun fern, So warm und nah und doch so fremd. In winter you can’t run, In winter you can’t hide, In winter you won’t escape, you won’t stand a chance, In winter you can’t run, In winter you can’t hide, You won’t get your revenge.

Rampage 04:24
Take your revenge. Death ignites his mind, Prick the wretched creature, Hate prevails his thoughts, No more comprehension, Go jolt the cage, Make the monkey dance, Poke him with a stick, Make him drink his piss, Motionless he is standing there, With a blade inside his red hand. What are you waiting for, Fuck tomorrow, Go take the matters into, One’s own hands, Raise your fist, Raise your guns, Raise your knifes, Start the fight, Killing will raise the stakes, This is a rampage. Break the chain set yourself free, Let the currish dog right of the leash, Your arousal swells seeing them perish, There’s only hatred left in your mind, Light the match start the fight, Abhorred you drag the burden even further, Only relieved by murder, A testimony of a blazing desire. What are you waiting for, Fuck tomorrow, Go take the matters into, One’s own hands, Raise your fist, Raise your guns, Raise your knifes, Start the fight, Killing will raise the stakes, This is a rampage. Now it is time for my payback, Now it is time for my revenge, This is a rampage, Everybody on the floor, This is a rampage, Everybody on the floor.

What has been done, Just made it worse, Blaming the cursed, Soon we'll be gone, A natural born leader, Is above such things, Easily controlling the riot, By killing their offspring. Hail the plague, Hail the pain, Hail the silence, We can’t outrun the equalization, Hail the ache, Hail the strain, Hail the violence, Eliminate are all hopes for, Redemption of the demoralized, Redemption leaving them paralyzed. Enforced by discipline, A mercenary never retreats from his duty, Cradle your rifle like a man, Honorless coward, Stand strong a look proud into the blazing fire, You filthy lair, Answer the question, You can't resign from this, Locked in obsession. The impacts are coming closer, A furiously stomping giant, Crushing everything under his feet, The fear freezes the rabbit hole, What is this, Why can't we safe our lives, You signed a blood contract, Now it's time to pay the price. Hail the plague, Hail the pain, Hail the silence, We can’t outrun the equalization, Hail the ache, Hail the strain, Hail the violence, Eliminate are all hopes for, Redemption of the demoralized, Redemption leaving them paralyzed. ἔστι δὲ δήλησις ἣ δήλησις ὑπερβαίνουσα, αὕτη τὸ κέντρον τὸ παντὸς φόβου δυνατοὺ ἐστίν, ὃ κόσμος τοῦτον φόβον ἀφύσσει, ὅπως ἔνιοί τινες ἀραῖοι καὶ δειλὸι αφανίζωνται. Onward, Fire at will, Let them have it, Take no prisoners, Show no mercy, Fortune's with us, Did you all not sign up for this, The shadows are waiting, With their muzzle opened wide, What the fuck are we doing, What the fuck are we doing.
