Principles of Paradox
When did it all go wrong? How could we let it go on for so long?
Who did that first mistake? Who took the first step and who's been awake but silent?
Churches were built by men, driven by love that we all understand
Since millions of lives've been lost
Kneel for the moon or kneel for the cross.
 
 
The First Rock
In the beginning there was one and only God, you see - all said and done - the only one you chose to rule the world
But then as time was passing by you kept - without even knowing why - re-entering new faces to the fold
So was it progress or regress? A bunch of them created such a mess inventing laws all written gold on gold
From now on one icon leaves no room for others
So now we're back - a single face in every corner, showing holy grace, demanding bigger palace - worth the king
We're working hard to build it right, we're slaving every day and every night, just dying to complete this bloody thing
Higher, higher we can't stop. The tower's getting higher
Build a perfect house of light on our flesh and bones
To keep a sacred image under lock and key, but very single dream we had kept ending in the mud
When we replaced religion with the rock the very first mistake - a simple rock.
Inferior gods must be gone
Tomorrow there'll be only one.
 
 
Exit Wound
It's been around for a while
That sign of a new beginning
I tried to let it all slide - no way, my mind keeps spinning
Some of the choices I've made's been haunting me forever
As trying hard to persuade me to regret. However:
Loneliness is grieving over what you are and then discover
Who you were or used to be
And now it seems so hard to understand
Give me strength to be who I was, recreate the ones whom I lost
Down the road - so hard and lonely - please forgive me now for who I am
I do agree to a point
No grudge's been left unchallenged
As if I could disappoint a crowd around me as each
Day of my life has been led by one declining nation
And in the end - all I'd get's my final destination
As there's no escape and no redemption at any Sunday afternoon
Your sins are catching up to hit you in the back -
You never thought they would until today
 
 
Divide And Reign
Ships arriving to a very distant shore,
Breeze is playing with flags it's never seen before
Moving closer - a bunch of soldiers and a priest,
Getting ready for a sacrilegious bloody feast half-moon, a cross
Who cares which one of them it was?
Welcome to the world of hate and desperation,
Get inside and choose your pain - we will ram it down the throat of every single nation
That's the way - divide and reign
Churches're burning was it colour or their shape?
Does it matter? It does to ones who didn't manage to escape
Listen closely - winners are gone, they had their ball - from the ashes I hear retaliations call
They won or did we? I'm pretty sure it wasn't meant to be half-moon, a cross
Who cares which one of them it was?
It's all a blur but I recall: I'm looking up and hear your call
The perfect war - no war at all - it's hard to swallow
A night will cover the battlefield to hide them all
 
 
High Noon at the Battlefield
All by myself under the scorching sun looking around, hoping the hate is gone
Waiting as for the magic trick to be revealed:
You see, it's high noon at the battlefield - and not a soul around - another high noon at the battlefield
Touching the ground, feeling the pain below
How did it end there? Wish you'll never know
Guarded by this soil as if it was a shield:
You see, it's high noon at the battlefield - I left my fear behind - a peaceful high noon
But not so long ago the wind was strong and freezing cold while blood was running down that hill
A war like this - you mark my words - can not be put on hold: we'll keep on welding our steel
Do you believe that horrors from our distant past will ever make us change our mind? No way!
Forget the fallen ones - we're in to have a blast, so all in all we're doing fine.
 
 
The Clan
White cape, red cross hands up to cheer The Big Boss
No life, no love, no thoughts, no brains to speak of:
Stand tall, divide the whole world in black and off-white!
You've got your plan
God bless you losers and your Clan
The day will come lights out - and soon you'll be gone
Who's left? Your son
The only thing you'll pass on:
Kill a nigger, kill a Jew, kill a couple, kill a few.
Alright - no more, no less? He'll put you to rest while going:
Raise your glass and hail The Clan feel united by your colour
Raise hell just because you can, burn a cross and one another.
 
 
Blood In Blood Out
I thought that the madness was over as echo of a last bloody war
Was fading away, but discovered a new breed of fools on the way
To steal their fair share of headlines in
Whatever Times over and over
For some unexplainable reason there's always a few of a kind
Who'd put their beliefs in a prison of highly deranged, vicious minds
Praying away for a bigger and stronger empire to surface the Earth,
Coming back from the ashes to set every nation on fire
Blood's on your face and all over the place as
You're hiding, you're lying - disgrace is worse than dying,
Keep falling much lower 'cuz it's so far from over
The war cry's returning (remaining bridges're burning)
You'll hear it - we mean it - so clear and loud:
Blood in blood out!
Now the war's moving into your home heat's getting closer
Blood In Blood Out
Who could have believed or expected, who knew all along that today
Dark Ages will be resurrected - now look at yourself, go on!
Wait for Messiah to save you and show what to do, follow
Millions of desperate rebels without a clue what are they fighting for, asking Almighty for.
See it coming blood in blood out.
 
 
Tears of the Sun
While all of us walk alone no help, we're on our own
The end - as they say - is a heartbeat away, so give me a reason to stay
Roaring silence you walk down the street in Belfast -
Think of it as every step that you take is your last
It could be, easily, just keep on watching your back:
Highest alert all the time - you are under attack, better keep moving
Rain's falling down on me as trying to make me see
The scars of this town. Just leave it and run
Surrounded by tears of the sun
Shot in the distance - and fear bounces back from these walls,
Someone ahead of you screams and suddenly falls
Killings are random but there is a reason behind retaliation?
Well, half of the nation went blind
While children in church are singing so peaceful,
Bells are ringing a lovely tune I'm going mad!
Rain's falling down on me as trying to make me see
The scars of this town. Just leave it and run
Surrounded by tears of the sun
Rain's falling down on me I wish it will let me be
One day I'll be gone but whatever I've done's remembered by tears of the sun
You can't ask for forgiveness from Heaven
'Til you've asked for forgiveness from men
In this town it will take you forever, so who gives a damn?
 
 
Hostile Breed
Ways of beliefs were written down to please you:
Saints, common thieves - each one his own to pick.
So why - can you tell me - your breed's inventing something new?
Holy war? Now I see - a sacrifice a week
Infidels way: live - let live how can you resist sudden urge to blow them away?
No - we're aware, your war's to get attention how could we dare to turn the TV off?
Raid (suicidal) - your humble share in a world's perfection
You'll meet - time is right - your idol and I hope
One bullet is enough  while you're screaming from the top of your lungs:
Jihad! The ones who feel the pain will try to stop the rain of terror, it's insane I hear them screaming:
Jihad! I know who it might be: nobody else but we, the ones who hold the key That's all they need:
Jihad! And as the time goes by we'll look upon the sky to ask the question: Why they keep on screaming
Jihad? They're just a hostile breed that bites a hand that feeds and loves to see it bleed - it's just a hostile breed
That cherish hate based on fear - that their religion can inspire nowadays. All we hear is: Jihad!
 
 
Chaos A.C.
The chaos keeps on raging, still hungry for a thrill - whatever script we're staging:
Holy book's kept close to the gun - now fire at will
The cast is ever changing to reinvent its skill - no soppy happy ending:
In the name of some God - just fire at will
Rest your weary head my son, all your trouble's just begun it's still a long way home.
