Viper - Vipera Sapiens

back to Viper discography

Viper'1993

Vipera SapiensRelease by: Massacre Records

(EP

When we were writing the material for "Evolution", we had a few older songs and at that time we didn't know if we wanted to put them in the album. They were a little different from the new material. But we like 'em, so we decided to release it now as mini-album. This is not the new album, but we hope you like it as much as we do.)

Acid Heart
Let's see the face of the 90's
Masking with drugs healthy minds
Science has the answer to your body
We see no end to this story.

Rain is pouring on me
But it ain't washing down
The poison from my soul.

Future means your consolation
But no cure for life's devastation
Now there's a cancer in the air
Just words will not seed the land.

Rain is pouring again
But it ain't washing down the poison
Purify me.

Free my acid heart
Last cry deep inside
No one is here to save us now
Life is far away
And no blood is safe
No one can save us now.

Living and dying
Selling and buying
Pass on your worries to the next.

Disease from chemical reaction
Ripping the skin of a nation
Altering the natural composition
Good fuel for the last ignition.

Rain is pouring on me
But it ain't washing down the poison
Crucify me.
 
(It was written in 1990 and it's about the danger of chemical elements in our lives and in the environment. We had just come back from Amazon and we think we got affected in some way, so we wanted to write something about it.)
 
 
Silent Enemy
Walking through the silent town
Footsteps are the only sound
You see darkness in the light
You call violence what we call fight.

In the streets nowhere to run
Our minds are free our work is done.

Who's my silent enemy
Where's the silent enemy
Who cares or understands
Who's my silent enemy
Where's the silent enemy
We believe, it's allright.

Army of a single man
Bringing justice to the land
History is in their eyes
Dollar writers tell no lies.

Underneath our hearts and souls
We free our minds the mirror shows.

Silent enemy
Under a nation's flag
Future will absolve you
From the laws of men.
 
(It's the fastest song in the album, although it has some pretty weird parts in the middle section. The lyrics are about the feelings of a man who thinks terrorism and nationalism are the same thing.)
 
 
Crime
Late in the night
I walk alone and thousand pictures
Are flying in my mind

And all my steps
It's like the beating of my passion
Exploding in my heart

Always ready to run through the life
I never throw, never throw my time away

Say that it's a crime
Take me off the line
Qive me what I need
Another night
I'm ready to begin again

Sometimes it's faked
When our hearts can't find the feelings
We're trying to forget

Sometimes your fate
It's not the same what you believe in
You just can't runaway
 
(We wrote this song in 1988, right after the recording of "Soldiers Of Sunrise". It's very very different from our style, but we like it so much. It reminds us of some time ago and we're glad we finally released it. It's only rock 'n' roll but we like it.)
 
 
Wasted Again
Ten thousand endless nights
I felt my fingers touch the skies
Last wind carried away my soul
I will never find myself anymore.

Ten plus ten thousand crazy dreams
And you know I'm keeping 'em in my memories
I'm at the limit that I can afford
Everyday I see my thoughts coming from my skin.

For you I'm leaving all my hope
Lead the way 'cause I don't know.

Ten plus ten thousand crazy words
I'm writing everything In my life's book
Snow wings take me out of here
Mow I'm hiding in a place where I see no fear.

For you I'm leaving all my hope
But believe I need it so.

Many times I've spent my life
And all I've learned was wrong
And many times I've trusted in you
I wish I'd never ever told you all the truth.

Ten plus ten thousand crazy eyes
Have been watching me always and I can't disguise
And ail those years I'm still waiting for
Anyone to blind my heart and open my door.

For you I'm leaving all my hope
You showed the way but I can't go.
 
(We had two versions of "Wasted" because we like to play around with the songs in demo tapes and in the studio. This is a shorter version of the song that ended up in the album "Evolution".)
 
 
Killing World
I killed a cop baby
I have to run away
Say you never saw me
Say you never knew me at all

LiFe is so tough baby
My future is a promise
You don't have to believe it
Never bet a dime on me yeah

It's a killing world
And I can't take it anymore
Crush my thoughts till the end
And it never ends
Inside of me is spinning round and round
My killing world

I killed myself last night
No chance to run away
Ain't nobody out there
Ain't nobody here to share the pain

That's around me
Killing world, sick enough
Blood fries in my bad brain
Drying out the madness in my veins yeah

The city in the haze
Starts up the dirty race
Implanting nightmares by the stack
Creates a thousand maniacs
I switch to overload
Flip to the crazy mode
Adrenaline as overdose
Down dead end streets
That's where it goes
 
(This song was composed in 1989. It had different lyrics back then, but we lost 'em on tour and the song stayed almost one year without lyrics. We finally wrote it in the studio.)
 
 
The Spreading Soul
(Acoustic version)
We are safe in this old storm
Close to the land but you know
Nothing is so calm to everyone.

I look at myself for something new
Tell me a little tale about you
Life is just a rhyme of hopes and crimes.

Better years are coming.

Not in my hand just in my heart
Lay the will I have inside
For all I want, what I feel
Sister moon Brother sun
Yesterday I was alone
All I want, what I feel
Is to be free.

Warmed by the sun when it shines
Floating in the air in a red sky
I can realize life is moving on.

I took from my blood all my hate
Guided by the light of fate
Wind blew out my soul to everyone.

Better days are coming.

I'm afiraid that when you go
The old storm'll turn around my boat
I don't know how to be free.

If a shadow in my life
Take me out from my red sky
I don't know how lo be free.
 
(It's basically the same song that ended up on "Evolution". It's only acoustic guitars and voice with no strings or keyboards - we wanted something even simpler that the version on the album. We wanted like it was before we got into the studio, with the same feeling that it had when we used to play for our friends.)
