From Clarity to Insanity
Silence lays deadly on the wood
And stone of this evil old house
What once here walked, always walked alone
Time is ripe and I am back again
Relive past days, always deadly stained

Some might call haunted
Some call insane
Some call deranged
But I went back again

Scandal, murder, suicide, insanity
The walls are closing in with cruelsome entity
Madness, torment spiced with sheer atrocity
Sweet scent of death invites to dear monstrosity

One night the house became alive
Woke me from sleep, time was half past nine
Each room and hall was now in motion
Twisted reason into sick subversion

So call me evil
Call me insane
Call me deranged
But I'll go back again

Scandal, murder, suicide, insanity
The walls are closing in with cruelsome entity
Madness, torment spiced with sheer atrocity
Sweet scent of death invites to dear monstrosity

So call me evil
Call me insane
Call me deranged
But I'll go back again
 
 
The Scaffold Scenario
Could I predict the storm
When constellations reach their final form
Two steps away from death I feel forlorn
As cold as stone in this world I was born

One step short of demise
Fear grows stronger than one thousand eyes
Staring at my destiny
But when it comes to leaving
I seek competence from gods
And the journey to hell
Is bound to end with a flow of blood

I welcome their shining, cold steel
To cut me so deep that my sins are forgiven
And salvation time would break free
Thus witness their will now come true
And anger distorted their long lost caresses
Of lives that I ended so cruel

Sink in the eyes again...

Sink in the eyes again
Fear strikes in lion's den
One wicked smile can win
Unleash the beast within

One step short of demise
Fear grows stronger than one thousand eyes
Staring at my destiny
But when it comes to leaving
I seek competence from gods
And the journey to hell
Is bound to end with a flow of blood
 
 
Cold Bits of Fire
Smoggy October sea opens
And the silent heat
Of the birds is mine
Everything's seen by the invincible stars
Cold bits of fire
Just nearby

Wing moves along your thigh
And the harbor's full of departures

I count the months
Like my memories
Six white ones, six cold ones

You cannot imagine numbers like that
The whistle's like a dream
And I have returned
From the stars

Wing moves along your thigh
And the harbor's full of departures

I count the months
Like my memories
Six white ones, six cold ones
 
 
Bloodstained Prophecy
Hie hence, be gone, away
Dividing clouds reveal the day
The dawn has broken from the dark
And thou must leave my lair, so hark

It was I who rode the demon wings
That pierced their joyful purity
At night my spirit lonely sings
And feasts with bloodstained prophecy

As thoughts wage war beneath my skin
They leave bleeding wounds within
Last drop of blood, the ruin of gods
Combine in the prophet's heart

So speak, be heard
Let sickness paint this earth
Behold, stand bold
Abide to witness the rebirth

As I march through this moonlit realm
I fell these torments overwhelm
For cosmic soul would now exhale
Its demons upon this earthly veil

It was I who rode the demon wings
That pierced their joyful purity
At night my spirit lonely sings
And feasts with bloodstained prophecy

But living is swinging between life and death
False values that surely would steal your last breath
I stood on the shore counting stars upon my head
A victim I was, constellations I shed

Now virtues wept in pain
Their prophecies were so bloodstained
He spoke, was heard
And demise fled away before this howling curse

In pouring rain I drench myself
And let it wash away the pain
For life escaped from my own veins
As call of god conquered this race

It was I who rode the demon wings
That pierced their joyful purity
At night my spirit lonely sings
And feasts with bloodstained prophecy
 
 
Menace And Prayer
I knew which way the wind blows
It carried me into this town
I knew about the slow death
I had to meet her in the street
And I walked on the ledges
Used menace and prayer
Covered myself with night
Covered myself with night...

So, if you think you know the wind
If you think you know... the wind
If you think you know
Just spread your wings
On wooden cross

My sweet friend died
In a flash, in a knife
I knew the wind
Like the century
Like the hole in my pocket
Until I saw the pigeons, they fly
Always towards the wind

And I walked on the ledges
Used menace and prayer
Covered myself with night
Covered myself with night...

So, if you think you know the wind
If you think you know... the wind
If you think you know
Just spread your wings
On wooden cross

Just spread your wings, just spread your wings
On wooden cross
 
 
Synthetia
I was told that an angel could steal my heart
Chant chaos chords and heal my inner scars
Clarified I gaze into my mind
There's more than meets the eye

Rise now and be freed of slumber
Fill veins with liquid dreams
A farewell to reality
And we shall walk the edge of time
Synthetic love divine

Behold
Powers combine
A body, soul and the chemical tide
One gentle gesture and a needle through my soul
Chromeheart and overdriven senses
Guide this endless journey
In search of an individual paradise

So come now
Together
We'll hide from death
Forever
In twilight and midnight we sense
That one more mystery's revealed

I once thought that a demon stole my heart
Promised fevered visions of one thousand arts
But humanity still chained me down
Forever stuck in this humble gown

Behold
Powers combine
A body, soul and the chemical tide
One gentle gesture and a needle through my soul
Chromeheart and overdriven senses
Guide this endless journey
In search of an individual paradise

I was told that an angel could steal my heart
Chant chaos chords and heal my inner scars
Clarified I gaze into my mind
There's more than meets the eye

Rise now and we're free of slumber
A human hand grips you
On the way to paradise
And we shall walk this earth alone
One day we will reach home

So come now
Together
We'll hide from death
Forever
In twilight and midnight we sense
That one more mystery's revealed
 
 
Opus Void
Sacred realm, I see this earthborn symphony
How can I dwell not far as flames still veil my heart
From thee...

Set the world on fire
Burn it bright with dark desire
Wield your hatred where my soul lies dead
Opaque my eyes as the dimmest light
Awaiting them to shine so bright
With the hate that once was hidden in my head

Raise me from this god forsaken emptiness
Release the wrath of centuries
In this portrait I am reborn
Again

Beneath these cobwebbed trees
All dancing lights has ceased
Wield your rapture where my soul lies dead
Caught in death's embrace...

Is this the sign of a permanent hell
A timeless prison cell
Where sharpened claws taste the essence of mine
Where I fall under burden of time

Linear streams go raging by
Leaving me alone to die
How can I expand my mind
When the dead caress my kind

Unleash the strength of centuries
Call my holy name
Whence this flame towards thee came

So, set the world on fire
Burn it bright with dark desire
Wield your anger where my sword lies sharp

Raise me from this god forsaken earthborn pride
Release the wrath of centuries
In this portrait I am reborn, again...

As autumn left its last rain drops
The snow fell back on the mountain tops
I went forth to ease my pain
Storming blood inside these veins
 
 
Divanity
I have no fear of this divine obscurity
Sought the truth, but ended up one foot in the grave
Curse you who drape yourself in vanity
Before yourself until judgement day

I will not step aside in silence
Won't be slaved again
Won't befog myself with values
All in vain

Autumn rain, wash this filth away
Share this moment
With a lonely, fierce, vulgarian soul

Hear my call
I once had blood on my hands
See me fall
With the company of a madman

I will not step aside in silence
Won't be slaved again
Won't befog myself with values
All in vain

I resent this god forsaken clarity
Found the truth, but ended up both feet in the grave
Curse you who cast yourself in humility
Lower yourself until our last days

Autumn rain, wash this filth away
Share this moment
With a lonely, fierce, vulgarian soul

Hear my call
I once had blood on my hands
See me fall
With the company of a madman

Descend to the ground
Feel its warm breath around you
Pure serenity
Truly in vivo
