Track Name: Judas' Kiss
Judas' Kiss

Last night as the sun had set
a last gathering of us thirteen.
We ate, we drank, we laughed.
A night to remember.
I was too blind, I didn't see
in between us an embittered man
with a loveless heart
and a filthy soul.

God, I was looking for company
and I.... and I found the devil creeping 'round.
God, I was looking for sympathy
And I... and all I got was a Judas' kiss.

Maybe he was just jealous
Maybe he was just greedy.
So he sold my life
like a souteneur his whore.
I did feed him, I did lead him
now he turns his back on me.
With one last kiss
he put a seal on a cult to come.

God, I was looking for company
and I.... and I found the devil creeping 'round.
God, I was looking for sympathy
And I, and all I got was a Judas' kiss.

I gave you my blood.
I gave you my flesh.
My Brother.
Betrayer.
I gave you my blood.
I gave you my flesh.
Betrayal.
Eternal.

Because of this treason
for a handful of silver
I will reign for years to come
and you will iconize my death.
Your church, your dogma -
always will be shadowed
by this one act of greed,
by this one act of betrayal.

God, I was looking for company
and I.... and I found the devil creeping 'round.
God, I was looking for sympathy
And I, and all I got was a Judas' kiss.
Track Name: Disgrace
Disgrace

I have fallen
in disgrace.
I gave my blood, my pain
for you to please.

I had told you
not to follow me
but you ignored my plead,
left me dying in the rain.

Three days later
I rose from the dump.
and each vein of mine
is filled with hate

Like a ghost
I’ll be haunting you
and I will take revenge.
Eye for eye and tooth for tooth.

I am the martyr of the raped souls
I'm bringing justice over you.
I'll be the law, I will be your judge
I'll be the hangman, I am your fate.

And through the streets... the streets I wander
driven by the nightmares you gave birth to.
Each soul of yours that I will take
will cover my shame, will decrease my pain.

I am the beast that you have casted
and I will thirst for your last breath.
I swear to the goddess of fertility
I won't stop until I am satisfied.
Track Name: Olympus Mons
Olympus Mons

It‘s like standing in front...,
in front of Olympus Mons.
No way I‘ll ever reach its top,
no way I‘ll ever get home.

I climbed the mountains so high.
I tried to reach for the stars.
Though instead of going up, my dear,
I always fell back to the ground.

Thinking about the years...,
the years that have gone by.
I was too weak and too selfish
to carry the burden of life.

I climbed the mountains so high.
I tried to reach for the stars.
Though instead of going up, my dear,
I always fell back to the ground

I climbed the mountains so high.
I tried to reach for the stars.
Though I forgot to cherish life
and now the end knocks at the door.

I climbed the mountains so high.
I tried to reach for the stars.
Longing for more I could handle
and could not handle what was left in my life.
Track Name: Lutheran Psalms
Lutheran Psalms

The world order was disunited
a pamphlet of hate nailed on God's door.
By a reformer, an agitator
spreading fear and loathing among the faithful.

With lies and fire a new world order rose.
Religious and racial fanaticism.
A prophet with a poisoned mind,
Praying life and speaking death.

Lutheran psalms
Hate and dogmatism.
Lutheran psalms
Sanctimony for the people.

"Burn their churches, destroy their houses
burn their books full of false prayers
kill their leaders if they dare to teach
deny them human dignity."

Martin, Adolf, oh Jesus Christ
Leaders of the misguided.
All are gone, still idolized,
Hypocrisy and bigotry.
Track Name: The Scent of the Dead
The Scent of the Dead

With the last heartbeat
and your last breath.
Getting cold and stiff
like being paralyzed in fear.

A faint of a colour while
lividity starts.
A bluish purple until
gravity exsanguinates you.

The scent of Death,
the smell of hell.
It‘s your last trace,
only memory remains.

And the feast begins,
the strong is the weak.
Once the hunter and now the prey.

Growing for the last time,
starting to bloat.
Gases expanding,
inflating your Corpse.

The scent of Death,
the smell of hell.
It‘s your last trace,
only memory remains.

No sweetness in the air
as long you will last.
The scent of the dead,
no romance therein.

And earth will swallow
and nourish itself
A new voyage ahead,
from now to forever.
Track Name: Borderline
Borderline

People are starving while cathedrals are built.
Crowns full of diamonds splattered with blood.
Feasting in Rome, bread for your brothers,
while vultures are waiting for a small boy to die.

Living in wealth while milking the poor.
Squeezing their souls out of their lives.
To promise eternity while stealing their time.
Lead them through shadows so they don't see...
...the light.

Borderline

To be in celibacy, in love with oneself,
while putting your left hand in a child's lap.
A threat of purgatory if one word was said,
calling them sinners by the sinner himself.

Accepting no laws made by human sanity,
hiding behind your sacrosanct cult.
Charity preached during a devotional act
while the fingers are crossed behind your ...
....back.

Borderline
Borderline
This is my borderline.
This is my borderline.
Track Name: Glorious Times
Glorious Times

Demons were dancing around in my head
to seducing sounds; like mermaids chants.
Promised me dreams as sweet as they can be
and rocked me to darkness like a child to sleep.

I felt like an angel, I felt so divine
protected and sheltered, invulnerable.
They never did tell me that these glorious times
will come to an end without a goodbye.

Each day a step further to aim for the moon
and I didn't notice I was drifting too far.
My heart, it gets slower and my breath becomes shallow.
And while darkness descends I am fading away.
