Track Name: Raptus
Raptus

I‘ve joined in faith
the army of the chosen.
With all its glory
to spread the truth.

And they call it raptus
and deny my holiness.
They call it raptus,
hypocritical kings of lies.

And I‘ve seen the faces
behind the gracious masks.
Greedy and selfish
malignant, full of despise.

And they called it raptus
and denied my holiness.
They called it raptus,
a bloodbath they deserve.

Gluttony, sloth.
Pride and lust.
Greed, wrath, envy.
All over. Disorder.

I am the martyr cleaning
the wounds of this world.
Burning those churches,
burning those ghosts.
Feeding this fat rat
to the snake of seduction.
Weeding the pest in the
Garden of Eden.

Raptus

I am a godsent with a gun in my hand.
I am a saint with a mission,
a saint with a vision.
I‘ll take the world back to order.
I am the raptor for heaven‘s sake.

Raptus

I‘ve joined in faith
the army of the chosen.
With all its glory,
to spread the truth with my sword.
And they called it raptus
and denied my holiness,
They called it raptus,
a bloodbath they deserved.
Track Name: Dignitas
Dignitas

I see him standing there, in the corner, waiting silently.
I‘m reaching for his hand, asking for release.
Though he keeps disappearing as soon I‘m getting near.

I am, I am the one who‘s gonna die.
I am, I am the one who‘s gonna die, tonight.

I‘m a man made machine with no sense for life.
A living dream, a nightmare coming alive.
I feel like a puppet hanging in the closet, unused but loved.
Too much love, that I did not choose.

I am, I am the one who‘s gonna die.
I am, I am the one who‘s gonna die, tonight.

I lived my life and left it for good.
Why don‘t you let me go?
You chained me to this world
I don‘t belong no more.
It‘s time to say goodbye.

Have you ever felt...?
Did you ever see...?
Did you ever feel such pain that is killing me?

Have you ever felt...?
Did you ever see...?
Did you ever feel such pain that is killing me?

I am, I am the one who‘s gonna die.
I am, I am the one who‘s gonna die, tonight.

I‘ve lost my breath, my heart, my life.
I can‘t take it anymore.
Continous pain through a drug smeared dream.
Still plugged to this life...

Have you ever felt...?
Did you ever see...?
Did you ever feel such pain that is killing me?

Dignitas

Have you ever felt...?
Did you ever see...?
Did you ever feel such pain, such pain, such pain that is killing me?

Have mercy upon my soul
and free my flesh from pain.
Track Name: A dying Sun
A dying Sun

I‘ve swallowed life, I‘ve eaten dirt.
I‘ve dug my grave a thousand times and more.
Once a king, a friend, a man beloved.
Now crucified and no one missing me.

And I walked my way
on a dead end street.
I am the son of a dying sun.
No one held me back
No one called my name.
I‘m just a son of a dying sun.

I‘ve refreshed myself with the tears you shed
and with just a smile I left you all behind.
I‘ve played a game that I‘ve never thought I‘m gonna loose.
And now I‘m paying with the grief I scored.

I was pain.
I was hate.
I am doom.
Death for every life.

And I walked my way
on a dead end street.
I am the son of a dying sun.
No one held me back
No one called my name.
I‘m just a son of a dying sun.

It took me a life to realize the trails of scorn that grew behind.
A past like a daydream in the sleepless night.
A dying man before and ever.
And I‘d rather be dead now.
Track Name: December 12
Dignitas

Watching out of the window,
a world that is not mine.
Out of this body, out of this time.
Looking at some childhood photographs,
no memories connected.
Trying, I am trying to remember a life.

And there’s nothing that will happen today,
and there’s nothing to be said anymore.
And there’s nothing that keeps me going on.
No there’s nothing left on this December 12.

I woke up this morning,
feeling out of place.
Strangulated, gasping for air,
tears running down my face.
Arrived and gone, did I ever start? Did I?
Did I live? Did I live this life of mine?

And there’s nothing that will happen today,
and there’s nothing to be said anymore.
And there’s nothing that keeps me going on.
No there’s nothing left on this December 12.

And I may, maybe I
should try to fly away,
never walk the ground again.
And I may, maybe I should
try to fly away,
towards the end of this life, towards the end.
Track Name: Vultures
Vultures

I know I deserve it all
though i never thought it‘d happen.
Never.

Life has turned its back on me
with all its force it hit me down
like the sun will hit my grave.

Buried
Just my head to feed...
Waiting for the daylight
burning life out of me.

And above my head they wait,
watching me.
Waiting for my decease
to satisfy their hunger.

While the world‘s applauding
a joy that shivers me,
their thirst for revenge,
a feast for their souls.

I was a gambler, a liar, a player
always a winner and sometimes a sinner.
I was the one who laid your wife
and shoot you in the back with a smile on my face.
I left a trail of dead behind me
never looked back, I didn‘t care.
All that stood in my way was eliminated,
I was my only friend, a true companion.
And then one night they stopped my game
and now I‘m chained in the desertlike a dog in a cage.
Waiting for the sun to come
and the vultures that are gonna get me.

Well I‘m burning!
Yes I‘m burning!
And the vultures are gonna get me!

Burning!
Yes I‘m burning!
Well i‘m burning!
And those goddamned vultures are gonna get me!
Track Name: Faith of the discarded
Faith of the discarded
Walking blinded, artificial light
while watching the world go by.
To sin for the sinner‘s sake, for what he died,
devoted to conformity. Aboulic and pale.

Praying to a non-existant god,
giving their life in the hand of a lie.
Sucked and exploited, bleeding for absolution.
Procession of a calculated life.

Yeah, it‘s the faith of the discarded!
Yeah, it‘s the faith of the discarded!

Though we are a legion of a million
growing day by day.
Taking back the urge to live,
to free our thoughts.
Taking back the faith. Coz we are God!

Yeah, it‘s the faith of the discarded!
Yeah, it‘s the faith of the discarded!
Track Name: I hail you
I hail you

It‘s seems like yesterday, behind a dirty bar.
Having the same to tell, sharing the same to feel.
This time I never thought this day would ever come,
that I could reflect on all those years.

And I hail you my beloved.

We walked our way in spite of what they said,
building our own little world,an inseparable trinity.
I want to thank you both for standing right by me
hand in hand, for time and time again.

And I hail you my beloved.
And I hail, I hail you!

I‘d give my heart, I‘d give my breath,
I‘d give my leg to see you walk.
I‘d give my eyes, I‘d give my soul,
I‘d give my life to see you live.
I‘d take your pain to see you smile.
I‘ll lead you through the saddest times.
I‘d kill for you a million times.

And I hail, hail you!
Track Name: And the dead start to breathe again
And the dead start to breathe again

Venomenous winter of years gone by.
Hellfrost covering the bulldozed earth.
A morbid angel spreading death.
Possessed by the masters at war!

Yeah, and the dead start to bleed again.
Yeah, like a headless Vitus on 45 graves.
Yeah, and the dead start to breathe again.
Yeah, an onslaught in a metal church!

Heavy Metal Punk, Heavy Metal Punk
Heavy Metal Punk, Heavy Metal

Millions of dead christians on parade.
An antisect, bastards from hell!
Exploited by the neurotical fear of god,
a crude society system.

Yeah, and the dead start to bleed again.
Yeah, the throne of the dark starts the mayhem again.
Yeah, and the dead start to breathe again.
Yeah, a godflesh in a sonic violence!

Heavy Metal Punk, Heavy Metal Punk
Heavy Metal Punk, Heavy Metal

Breathe, dead, breathe!

And the dead start to bleed again.
Yeah, a dying bride loosing paradise.
Yeah, and the dead start to breathe again.
Yeah, a cathedral doomed to be rebuilt.
