Blinded by Fear
'We are blind to the
World within us,
Waiting to be born'

I cast aside my chains
Fall from reality
Purgatory unleashed
Now burn the face of the earth
Purgatory unleashed
Now burn the face of the earth

Chorus:
The face of all your fears
All your fears unleashed
The face of all your fears

Born of the demon sky
Twisting reality
Sweet nauseating pain
Is death the only release?
Nauseating pain
Is death the only release?

Chorus:
The face of all your fears

I cast aside my chains
Fall from reality
Suicidal disease
The face of all your fears
Now covered with sores
Humanity exiled
Purgatory unleashed
Now burn the face of the earth
Purgatory unleashed
Now burn the face of the earth

Chorus
 
 
Slaughter of the Soul
Never again
On your forcefed illusions to choke
You feed off my pain
Feed off my life

Chorus:
There won't be another dawn
We will reap as we have sown

Always the same
My tired eyes have seen enough
Of all your lies
My hate is blind

Chorus:
Slaughter of the soul
Suicidal final art
Children - born of sin
Tear your soul apart

Never again
My tired eyes have seen enough
Of all your lies
My hate is blind

Chorus:
Slaughter of the soul
Suicidal final art
Children - born of sin
Tear your soul apart

'Men must attempt to develop in themselves and their children liberation from the sense of self
...Men must be free from boundaries, patterns and consistencies in order to be free
To think, feel and create in new ways'

Luke Rhinehart, 'The Diceman' - 1971
 
 
Cold
To rid the earth of the filth
To rid the earth of the lies
The will to rise above
Tearing my inside out

Chorus:
I feel my soul go cold
Only the dead are smiling

To rid your heart of all lies
Their poison tongues, poison hearts
Burning cold...
Now let the final darkness fall

Chorus:
'...The dream of the new disease
On wings of euphoria...
Sucking terror from the needle scars...'

22 years of pain
And I can feel it closing in
The will to rise above
Tearing my insides out

Chorus
 
 
Under a Serpent Sun
Web of corruption thick with deceit
The language of destruction, the slaughter of the meek

Under a serpent sun - we shall all live as one

No rest for the wicked, the children of god
The final retribution, the final curtain torn
Within us - the flames of the end
Survival of the fittest, the hunt for the sacred game

Under a serpent sun - we shall all live as one

Children of chaos - born of holocaust seed
Inherit the addiction, angels of genocide breed
Within us - the flames of the end
Survival of the fittest, the hunt for the sacred game

Under a serpent sun - we shall all live as one

Sweetfleshed, hellbent creature
Artist of the fevered soul
Heavenly, venomous rapture
Stricken numb by fear I fall

Stricken numb by fear I fall
 
 
Into the Dead Sky
(Instrumental)

'Recently it has become possible for man to chemically alter his mental state and thus alter his point of view.
He than can restructure his thinking and change his language so that his thoughts
Bear more relation to his life and his problems, therefore approaching them more sanely...'
the 13th floor elevators
 
 
Suicide Nation
Utopia - lost in chaos
As the sky turns black
Suicide legacy
There is no turning back
...No turning back

Chorus:
Retribution answers cold
Moving in for the kill
Deep hideous festering
Bestial spidemic, repulsive need

Control, control

Suicide nation
Mass-appeal, death-addiction
Dead but dreaming
Restrained by phobia, brainwashed into submission

Control, control

Suicide - jaws locked around your spine
...Locked around your spine

'The face of evil is always the face of total need...'
W.S.Burroughs, 'Deposition: Testimony concerning a sickness'

Chorus:
Control, control

Suicide - jaws locked around your spine
 
 
World of Lies
Degeneration tears your black skies
The final descent for the last in life
No joy in our tired lives - the torment builds inside
The sun sets forever on a world of lies

World of lies

Chorus:
World of lies
Non-divine
Release me

Demonic vultures feed on your mind
Disarmed of all your pride you die
No life in our alien eyes - the blind lead the blind
The sun sets forever on the non-divine

Non-divine

Chorus:
Final psychotic eclipse
Painted in the colours of war
Final psychotic eclipse
A world drenched in blood

Degeneration tears your blackened eyes
The final descent for the last in life
No joy in our tired lives - the torment builds inside
The sun sets forever on a world of lies

World of lies

Chorus

'And it's his illusions about what constitutes the real world which are inhibiting him...
His reality, his reason, his society ...these are what must be destroyed'
Luke Rhineheart, 'the Dice Man' - 1971

Final psychotic eclipse
Painted in the colours of war
Final psychotic eclipse
A world drenched in blood of the innocent
 
 
Unto Others
You hold high the banner of self-deceit
Engaged in the dogmas of life, you join the elite

Chorus:
My Judas-window stays shut - shut forever more
My Judas-window stays shut - shut forever more

You mock the weak for not giving you their trust
In your world of make believe, where statues turn to dust

Chorus:
You walk through what is me
Stare blind - cannot see
Your thoughts flee to a different land
They are free, but you are bound

Silenced forever, the walls are closing in
The keys to our damnation - burial... burial within

Chorus:
...Shut forever more
 
 
Nausea
Release me from your world of lies
I cannot bear this pain
Degenerate machinery
The monsters we create
The monsters we create

Nausea, oh sweet nausea

Genetic barcode hell
Mental genocide
Repulsive human shells
Choke on the fruits of life
Choke on the fruits of life

Nausea, oh sweet nausea

Cold stare, starving eyes
Blinded, tired lives
Release me from this pain
Unknown to man

Nausea, oh sweet nausea

Cold stare, starving eyes
Blinded, tired lives
Release me from this pain
Unknown to man
Unknown to man

'The family structure, victory over adversity through the family.
Mix the god and country add the ten hour day and you had what was needed...'

C. Bukowski, 'Ham On Rye'
 
 
Need
'...Because of my love for all living
...I choose to die...'

Open me, with your kiss of steel
End my pain - set me free

For we are enslaved, forever enslaved

Open me, with your kiss of steel
End my pain - set me free
Live only to die some more
Need - killing yourself to live

For we are enslaved, forever enslaved

Lay your fears to rest... fears to rest
Let your dreams awake... dreams awake

For we are enslaved, forever enslaved

Lay your hate to rest - open me...
 
 
The Flames of the End
(Instrumental)

'Humanity - the living end, a walking disease beyond good and evil, the flesh that never rests

The flames of the end inside us rest'
 
 
Legion
(by Slaughterlord.)
 
 
The Dying
Reality - she feeds off me
Steal my eyes so that I can't see
Blinding me for all eternity

Distorted dreams of our reality
Building walls around our lives
While we're staring, with eyes that deceive
As the eagle dives again

As daylight is torn
Our sins are reborn
Sweet nihilistic angel of war

Distorted dreams of our reality
Crucified, refusing to die
We are staring blind into a void of lies
As the eagle dives again

As daylight is torn
Our sins are reborn
Sweet nihilistic angel of war

Dying reality
Stereotyped insanity
Sweet nihilistic angel of war

Reality - she feeds off me
Steal my eyes so that I can't see
Blinding me for all eternity

As daylight is torn
Our sins are reborn
Sweet nihilistic angel of war

Dying reality
Stereotyped insanity
Sweet nihilistic angel of war

Together with the vermin of deception
Extinction lives and breathes in us
Degeneration - extinction lives and breathes in us
Degeneration
Degeneration
Degeneration
Degeneration
 
 
Captor of Sin
(by Slayer.)
 
 
Unto Others
 
 
Suicide Nation
 
 
Bister Verklighet
Hur länge ska folk mördas
I sin kamp för frihet

Det här är ingen film
Det här är verklighet
Det här är ingen film
Det här är verklighet

Folket kräver en fristad
När staten törstar efter deras blod

Det här är ingen film
Det här är verklighet
Det här är ingen film
Det här är fan verklighet

Hur länge ska folk mördas
I sin kamp för frihet

Det här är ingen film
Det här är verklighet
Det här är ingen film
Det här är fan verklighet

Folket kräver en fristad
När staten törstar efter deras blod

Det här är ingen film
Det här är verklighet
Det här är ingen film
