Leper Tides 05:44
I saw them fade limb by limb In our well known imprisonment Recovery was my naïve whim We all waited for death to come Like a bent liberation And he came for us one by one Extinguished a whole nation One day they all were gone Rotten and disfigured Gone was the hope I rested upon Nothing really matters anymore This is not a life it is a curse My heart is fighting the biggest war The pain can’t get any worse I don’t want to stay in a rotten dump I am as lonely as anyone can be My hope is featureless Deliverance What a relief The rope killed all my grief Rather dead than a zombie Deliverance I opened doors so many I couldn’t count But no hope left, all there was; a disgusting reek Superior my happy thoughts amount No wonder my mind is starting, starting to get weak

Above us there’s fire Around us darkness falling We know our fate Before it's too late We cannot wait Grab your spear my loyal man Spread the Word all through the clan Land of Gods, here we come Got descent of a warrior Gather around What could evoke this fatal wrath? If the culprit is revealed I will send him to the burial ground He who turned my world Into a burning chaos It's hot up here The air is thick of dust We cannot breathe And hardly walk on the fiery crust Continue, we must Increasing doubt Boiling fire around It will wipe out my world With a hissing sound No need to run Nowhere to hide This molten sun will surely get us fried I raise my spear The end is here If the culprit is revealed I will send him to the burial ground

Typhoon 07:52
Get out of my way if you want to survive There will be no life left when I arrive I pick you up Just to smash you down I will throw you off the wrong side of town Don't Push your luck I have seen you try Smash into pieces Tear off the ground My action decreases all things around I'm fast and I'm strong Don't get in my way My only mission and meaning is to stir the pot Perhaps also demeaning And show you all you're not And show you all And show you all you're not I will enjoy to get you Lift you, shake you and throw you When I leave your broken body I must confess I couldn't care less Don’t get in my way You’re not able to stay I'll pick you and smack you down I'll spread your life all over town Like I said I must confess I couldn't care less I don’t even know your name To me you people are all the same All The Same No remorse, I'll kill you all Totally impassive I'll watch you fall Your life and wellbeing means nothing to me Compassion have never been my cup of tea

Fear Me 06:04
Who let this stupidity loose I have to suffocate Who told them they were in charge I will extinguish In their bombastic stupidity I suppose they won’t see They will blame it on some made up creature And take the glory off of me I kill the rich I kill the poor I stop for nothing nor your armor door I kill their young I kill your old I fear no weapons so don't get bold I love to see your deadly fear I feed from your frantic tears Come in to my grasp Give in to me You think your power is omnipotent You find ways to stop me I arise When you least expect it Your new born hope dies Some say love your foes and keep them close Is this close enough for you I'll fill you up I truly do I'll eat you from the inside out I will enjoy every desperate shout I will enjoy every desperate shout I'll eat you from the inside out Call my name, go insane, and fear me I love to see your deadly fear I feed from your frantic tears Come in to my grasp Give in to me I kill the rich I kill the poor I stop for nothing nor your armor door I kill their young I kill your old I fear no weapons so don't get bold You think your power is omnipotent You find ways to stop me I arise Some say love your foes and keep them close

Murder Sun 08:03
My task; to bring life, once you knew you saw my greatness Suddenly you've got no clue For a fact, I´m beginning to hate you You praised, you glorified, just like you should I blazed with well-deserved respect and assisted when I could I watched you below with pleasant affect What a huge evolution fail From confident and insightful to weak, pathetic and frail Humanity is frightful When you nourished our alliance So did I You’re a huge disappointment Have you ever thought of why I who before brought life Now make you sick and let you die You speak of diseases But the worst plague is you You ought to be exterminated And in time that’s just what I’ll do My nutrient powers are almost gone All because of what you´ve done Once I was the healing one Now they call me murder sun Murder sun Before I gently caressed your skin Nowadays I plant cancer within Because of you, all because of you I call you murderer son Since you´re the killing one

A senseless and trifling movement some might say Maybe I would too before this sunny but deadly day I am searching for life and faces I recognize Stumbling over swollen bodies Walking amongst the dead Happy, shameful and exhausted Where's my angel? It should have been me instead Nothing is constant Despair! Rotten corpses everywhere This very same morning you were good to us Cuddling, throwing treasures in our way That’s mean and deceitful Obviously just the way you play How can anyone like you be trusted ever again? You swallowed my life and left me here with nothing Trapped in paradise with the devil laughing in my face My being is a haze Stumbling over swollen bodies Walking amongst the dead Happy, shameful and exhausted Where's my angel? It should have been me instead

Consumed 08:50
I never asked for you to come But now your in my life It just all went so fast You said I'm here for you I feel you I thought “okay” I believe all you say And then let you in In my life full of sin You stroke my soul with a gentle touch And promised to care, care for me just as much as much I care None of my secrets I care I care to save Then you touched my heart and smiled I thought I misjudged you and liked you for a while I felt bad, thought I must have been all just me You were so kind It had to be I let you in under my skin Deep within You ate me up like a piece of chop Deep within You killed me but wait you’ll see Betray me I’ll let you see the real me You will see The real me You're a lie So am I But just a gleam in one of your (eyes) and suddenly I realized I saw pure evil It shone right through and revealed the real ghastly you You're evilness personalized You're abhorrence supersized Your abhorrence supersized Your evilness personalized Turn you back or fall asleep Dare to provoke I don’t say that it must but it could make you choke I might have lived a few lives before You´ve met Mr. likable Let me introduce the other me Mr. Vindictive, pleasant to meet I cancel my victims precisely and neat Precisely and neat

Endgame 06:58
What made you believe? How could your ego grow that big? What did you achieve? You act like life is a solo gig Imagine your future, what do you see? Only you or does it embrace me? Your wise men so saintly fulfilled Enlightened by God and prophecy skilled They sat a date for my unavoidable end When there’s no return and faults can’t be mended They sat a date for my unavoidable end When there’s no return Your end is near Cruel and sincere But not by your hand I’ve got it all planned You’re slowly killing me Yes that's true But it's not about me, it's all about you You're too dumb to realize You're breaking me down But it's you who dies Suddenly life will drop off Suddenly you'll hopefully see why you’re not my creator I'm not here for you I leave when I want to Just watch me when I do
