Track Name: There will be revenge
The red rider comes!

Love destruction, slaughter, pain, ignominy
Enter the circle of blood, massive death ceremony
Meeting the lowest ambitions
once again war rules over us

Citadels of death and horror, temples built with skulls and bones
They claim ten eyes for one is what their gods want to be done

They must know there will be wrath
there will be loads of hate, they’ll get it
There will be revenge

Brood over your rusty mantra, “si vis pax, go parabellum
we’re doing it for you, we’re sucking out the venom”

Target schools, markets and hospitals, nests of terrorist rebellions
How can you say you’ll flush evil while you’re crushing the salvation?

They must know there will be wrath
there will be loads of hate, they’ll get it
There will be revenge

Brimming numbers in your black book
large civilian casualties
Necessary measures for you…
enough for me
Who the fuck gave you the right
to force your false liberty?
Are you blind to truth, you puppets?
We can’t sit still

You’ll get it, you’ll get it, you’ll get it
There will be wrath.
You’ll get it, you’ll get it, you’ll get it
Here comes the flock
You’ll get it, you’ll get it, you’ll get it
There will be wrath.
You’ll get it, you’ll get it, you’ll get it
There will be blood
Track Name: Bright red light
Never got a clue, never saw this hue, never thought you’d
feel the fire as close as I did
Through the gate the blood red shafts
swirl around so mesmerizing

Would you wish to take a look
to the world where ghosts are hiding
Hold this key and get inside
just close the door behind

Face the night
take that smiling mask off your distorted face
Realize you’ve never met the hell we fight
Cross the line
to the void of words that no one ever said
May the blindness let you see the bright red light

So this ancient struggle goes
demons cast shadows of angels
As you climb the steepest rise
you’ll feel the ascent is endless

But remember who you are
reject the mundane surrender
Raise atop this ziggurat
you’ll reach the flaming star

Face the night
take that smiling mask off your distorted face
Realize you’ve never met the hell we fight
Cross the line
to the void of things that no one ever said
May the blindness let you see the bright red light

Pass the door
leave doubts behind you
Tame the beast
we walk besides you

Touch the light
beat these wings of wax, fly as high as you can
There's no fire that could melt down the vast sky
Break the trance
see this realm of dreams that no one ever dreamt
Let the bright red light flood in, open your eyes

Enter the bright red light
Track Name: Blizzard is fine
What’s your name? I can’t recall
here up my throne wind blew your face long ago

So you have lowered yourself to come back here
to my palace of ice and glass
All this cold you feel around, it’s just the gift
you left behind as you walked out of my past

What’s your name? I can’t recall
here up my throne wind blew your face long ago
You made your choice all by your own
it took too long to realize you were wrong, were so wrong

In the dark you left me down I met my fears
I let them eat my guts and rot my flesh
Was left to die in the snow bleeding out grief
“but hey, the blizzard’s fine” comforted myself

While I’ve been drained away
you remain the same

What’s your name?
I can’t recall

Now it is too late to beg and to regret
Oblivion shelters me… go back the way you came
Track Name: Astray
There was a time I was a proud
and loyal member of the pack
But lies and plots, the hostile rush
hurt deeper than the sharpest fang

I can’t see my way (the lights are low)
I’m nothing but a wolf astray
too far away from home
These years of rain have drowned my soul
I just wander around alone

Frail and rejected, skin on bones
I could not make it on my own
Sunshine painfully burns my scars and blinds my eyes
I flee the day as they flee as I pass
But I’ve got used to the night and the dark
I don’t need more light but what is offered by the stars

I can’t see my way (the lights are low)
I’m nothing but a wolf astray
too far away from home
These years of rain have drowned my soul
I just wander around alone

And so the steppenwolf had two natures, a human one and a wolfish one.
In him the man and the wolf did not go the same way together, but were in continual and deadly enmity
This was his fate, and it may well be, that it was not a very exceptional one
One existed simply and solely to harm the other
And when there are two in one blood and in one soul who are at deadly enmity...
then life fares ill
Well, to each his lot… and none is light.

Deep within my feral heart
what’s remaining of the man
What’s remaining of the man?

But now I chase a prey (the moonlight’s strong)
I hail and howl, the night awakes
to lead the prodigal sons
I see her face, a silver sun
taking care of her lost hounds
Track Name: The prison across the river
I’ve stood on this shore for so long I can’t remember
if I was born here or came with the flow
Across the river I gaze their happy faces
they all oblivious to my roaring storm

All alone, no one can hear me cry for help
from this prison, so far, at once so close
I crave to share their lack of concern
but from this side, the view crushes my hope
Can’t break free, can’t breathe deep
it’s my will to retrieve some kind of peace

To get away, to stay awake, to get out of this cell
It’s not my fault, I didn’t ask for all this shit in my head
Too long I tried to play along; I ain’t let them see my face
But if the tide comes in at last, I’ll certainly drift away

I used to scratch on the wall, one day one mark
but since I ran out of walls, I use my skin
I’ve thought so many damn times I should surrender
I’ve planned so many times how I could flee
Can’t break free, can’t breathe deep
it’s my will to retrieve some kind of peace

To get away, to stay awake, to get out of this cell
It’s not my fault, I didn’t ask for all this shit in my head
Too long I tried to play along; I ain’t let them see my face
but if the tide comes in at last, I’ll certainly drift away

All you fools are prisoners in your delusion of freedom, delusion of freedom
The shackles that you carry are not light, their lie is your prison, their lie is your prison
Turn off your TV and realize the chains that restrain you, your ties are not ribbons!

I’ve stood on this shore for so long I can’t remember
if I raised these walls and then locked me in
Within this fortress made of concrete and iron
I’m all alone but I can feel relief
I’m still here, truth is free
I feel safe, in this cage I stay aware

To choose my fate , to find the way I don’t wanna leave this place
It is my choice, I’m proud of it, I won’t burden with your chains
I see the sun over the clouds, but keep my feet down the earth
And when the tide flush you away... on my shore I will be safe
Track Name: The resilient
The game is on, I feel the groove
my wrists are red, the ties get loose
easy to see their next move ‘round
I can’t check mate with a mad pawn

Figure the way out of here, figure the way out of here
figure the way out of here
nothing lasts, nothing lasts, nothing

A born reflex, when grief bears down
bury my heart into the ground
it’s hard to wear the mad man’s crown
I can’t check mate with a dead pawn.

Figure the way out of here, figure the way out of here
figure the way out of here
nothing lasts, nothing lasts, nothing

Gifted resilient, numb dissonance
pain can’t break you down

I can feel the strain, tight rope round my neck
what’s the proper way to raise a dam against the pain?
I can feel the strain, tight rope round my neck
what’s the proper way to raise a dam against the pain?

This martyr says, this martyr says
find calm in this terrifying place
this martyr says, this martyr says
find calm in this terrifying place
Track Name: Never alone
Those eyes, those kind memories
This voice, still haunting me
But I didn’t see this predictable end

This state so hard to keep
This maze we’re stumbling in
And we didn’t see this predictable end
look what I’ve become

She never learnt to be alone
and now she trembles, no one’s 'round anymore
Tosses and turns, calling for love
but I ain't got what she wants

Can’t cry fear out of me
This wreck of shame and guilt
But when coherence fails nothing can be right

I’ve tried so hard to feel
I failed, you fell with me
Now we cannot help, this is not gonna work

She never learnt to be alone
and now I tremble, she's not 'round anymore
We crawl away, clumping along
yet we won't get what we want

She never learnt to be alone
she never learnt to be alone
she never learnt to be alone
She’ll never have to be alone
Track Name: Montauk
They gather round the natal bed, the foolish and the wise
They fear the child yet to be born, whose voice shall rend the skies
The faithful watch the forest for the coming of the king
Their lanterns bright, they wait at night, for the new world he shall bring
Their lanterns bright, they wait at night… (he’s coming soon)
for the new world he shall bring

Seven seals, seven rings
Seven brides, for the Scarlet King
They’ll give birth to the wicked heir
Fear the true fallen prince

The hens were in the henhouse, and seven eggs did lay
'till fox crept in by dark of night and stole the eggs away
Six broken by their bindings, six no more shall sing
The seventh fully unwinding, and all the birds did sing
The seventh fully unwinding… (he’s coming through)
and all the bells will ring

Seven seals, seven rings
Seven chains through the marble sphere
May the world shake below his feet
when he wakes up from his sleep

When the first had given birth, then all the birds did sing
Her screaming cries did shake the skies, as she called out for her king
By doctor's blade the second bade a life into the world
His bride the third remained unheard, her cries for help ignored
The fourth prepares a dagger and points it at her heart
The fifth one's crown was bearing down, apocalypse begets
On the sixth's day, walls gave way and the oceans turned to ash
her birth gave work, as the earth shook, underneath the king's fell lash
The seventh bride will break the tides, the moon no more will shine
There comes a day not far away… she'll birth the death of time

Hail the king, hail the king, hail the Scarlet King
Track Name: Welcome to South Peaks
Welcome to South Peaks
twilight makes us golden as we walk down the street
This city never sleeps
saints of stone behold things that are hard to believe
Cross the bridge and see
guile and erudition rule together in here
But at night, the wild runs free

Come over, show's to begin
dance to the tune of your sins
If you quarrel, we are for thy
downtown our rock commands the night... join the fight!

You’ll find allies here
brothers and sisters, we meet to resist
But grant trust carefully
backstabbers and hookers cloak as wise men and queens
We bite our thumb at thee
if we raise together adversity cannot win
Here we stand, in south peaks

I can't curb this impulse
I can't help the rage
set this city on fire
waste my own Pompeii

Listen our word
tear down their thrones
Listen our word
bring down the lords
Come over, listen our word
rise up and tear down their thrones
Come over, listen our word
in South Peaks where corruption flows...
We'll make them fall!
Track Name: Bang, bang
Drive fast out of the cloud of dust; it’s been a long way, almost out of gas
The mob’s ahead, throttle up , let the engine roar, let the bumper tap

This is a resistance race, you cannot cover, neither run away
Do you feel the scent of hate? It smells like blood, is floating in the air
Never been told what to do when everyone is trying to get rid of you
Never been told what to say
when time and time again they do their best to crush your life fucking ‘way

Bang, bang, hold that smoking gun, you better be fast if you want to last
Aim for the head, hold breath and rub, the trigger likes the touch of the gentle hand
This is getting bloody man, not enough ammo, you should use bare hands
The crack and splatter is a pleasant sound when coming from the skull of a rabid rat

This is a resistance race, you cannot cover, neither run away
Do you feel the scent of hate? It smells like blood, is floating in the air
Never been told what to do when everyone is trying to get rid of you
Never been told what to say
when time and time again they do their best to crush your life fucking ‘way

You’re screwed, legs start to faint; but you know what they say, no pain, no gain
The loss of blood is serious stuff, only adrenaline makes you keep stand
Your body steams, you fall to the ground, a silent smile after a thousand rounds
Today you have made history: today will be remembered as a day of fear

This is an offensive stance; ain’t need to cover you came to face your past
I can feel the bitter end, it tastes like ash, it’s always dust to dust
Revenge is a one way road, forgiveness’ not a privilege that they are worth
Revenge is our way to go
When you live by the fire... It’s by the fire that you fall
Track Name: Ouroboros
Once back upon a time somebody told me “kid,
life is a game that you can never win”
I’ve lost so many times, yet I cannot agree
if there’s a goal there is a way to get to it

These old fears stand in my way
fate repeats the same mistakes
When sun sets down hope burns the past
If night comes by let us be ash

Far in the grey horizon silhouettes wave me farewell
one for each time that I have ever failed
But I must walk ahead towards the distant promised land
through this uncertain fields your voice warms up my heart

These old fears stand in my way
fate repeats the same mistakes
When sun sets down hope burns the past
If night comes by let us be ash

Is it just pointless
in this recurrence
the pale delusion
is falling down

By will to power
next oscillation
will push us forwards
we’ll reach beyond

Break out the cycle
fight through the limits
the path’s not over
defy your bounds

One more effort

This conscious deliverance
resentment seems far away
As godless stars plow through the skies
If night is dark, let us be light

We are lost
on this road
we'll find ourselves
