1. Inquisition

A torture of cultures,
of the ones you have denied
And after all these years
you still run away
from all the pain
you left behind
Stolen their identities, you failed to see
Stolen, and so their right to be
Stolen, and so their right to feel
Stolen, and so their right to be
Stolen, and so their right not to believe
You pray to your god
as you reach for the devilís hand
Donít tolerate, indoctrinate
in the name of a hollow faith
Poison the minds of the unaware
For the cause of a holy warfare
You spill more blood to cleanse the stain
just to relief your guilty mind
God hates your inquisition
Thou art not free from blame
When freedom comes with a gun in the hands,
everybody fights for their promised land.




2. Melancholy Returns

From the filth of dawn, another day
I spend in despair
I search for something real but thereís nothing left
Except these scars we have become
Accept these scars we have become
Where are your colours that used to paint my sky
You wasted all my dreams, I never felt this sick
Your eyes I trusted but they turned out to be a lie
Your beauty is just cruelty
A remnant of disease
I want to make you feel my pain
I want to make you feel
Just to see how you would deal
Just to see how you would bleed
Cause we are dead when weíre alone
Yeah we are nothing when weíre on our own




3. Broken Vows

I touch the sky that reveals before my eyes
You drain the blood from every tear I cry
Exalting love
to a rusted sculpture
As we look up
into the night
and Iím waiting for the dayÖ
My eyes opened but my heart will bleed
When love is for the blind
then beauty is a whore,
when love is for the blind
then you can have my eyesÖ
for the times you believed in something or someone who was never thereÖ
Iím sorry but I could not see
Through these dead eyes I could not see
Through these shiny eyes I could not see
to hell with rationality
to hell, to hell with me
cut my eyes out, I cannot see
cut my heart out, I cannot feel
to hell with rationality
to hell, to hell with me




4. Deviant (Reloaded)

Iíll be the stain on your refinement
Iíll be the son who you abandoned
Iíll be the spot on your white collar
Iíll be almost everything you are not
Adore me abhor me
All the labels youíve clung to me
I will overgrow
I will overthrow
Never conform to all your standards
Never follow your moral ethic
I refuse to be a part
I refuse to be silent
Silence means to consent
And I will not consent
Deviant we are
Stigmatised by a cross
But still we fuck
Your elite norms of superiority
And yet we shall be
The counterattack minority
Iíll be the stain on your refinement
Iíll be the son who you abandoned
Iíll be the spot on your white collar
Iíll be almost everything you are not
I swear you will remember my name
I swear you will remember our fame
I swear you will remember my name
I swear you will remember I am me




5. Love Anthem For A Dead Friend

Dwelling around, around in circles
as I, as I can taste the rain
I wonder what youíd say
to ease this pain
Afraid of love?
Yeah, Iím just afraid to lose again
I Look up to the sky,
hoping that your light will penetrate
Someday, some night.
No memories broken
No thoughts erased
Forever burnt in my heart
Forever in my memory
I smash these tears from my mirror
and I paint a smile for you
I put my trust in you
Come on, take care of meÖ
Hold on to me
take care of meÖ
When Iím not strong enough,
will you take care of me?
And let all this,
all this misery,
all this emptiness,
all this fucking pain,
rain away, fade away, waste away?
Itís so hard not to cry
Itís so hard to say goodbye
You will never be forgotten
So I will never be aloneÖ
I look up to the sky,
Hoping that your light will never fade awayÖ




6. Passion Sets The Killing

Passion sets the killing
Your greed sets the rules
In your game of domination
On your way to exploitation
We burn, we burn so easilyÖ
We burn in hell, in hell we fucking burn
Every breath that we take
Another step towards our grave
When the worst of engineers
Provides a gun in every hand
Who ís the god that made you so cruel?
Who holds the hand thatís guiding you through?
How can you stand your face in the mirror?
Driven into a corner
Where we shut our mouth
Driven into a corner
Where sew our eyes shut
Your passion for power has set the killing of innocent lifes.




7. Through The Eyes Of Rebellion

No emperor will lay his torment upon me,
no fucking clown will play a tyrant scene
no imperialistic terms, no corrupt policy
will quench my thirst for freedom.
How can I accept when youíre pointing out a gun?
How can I not speak when you try to cut my tongue?
Youíll try to make me bleed
Look at me Iím seeing through
Youíll try to hunt me down
Look at me Iím seeing through
How far will you go
to take what you needÖ
Revolution is evolution
Letís interfere
Letís take stand
Letís burn them downÖ burn them down
Revolution is evolution
RevolutionÖ sometimes confusion!




8. Road To Salvation

The road to salvation!
How long shall we rape the elements of life?
How long shall we rob the earth from all her pride?
(Do) your words of reason
rhyme with compassion?
Does tradition justify your murder?
Are we standing still in evolution?
Animals suffer for our luxuries,
for things we donít need.
And I question:
Canít you feel in your heart this is wrong?
And canít you see in your heart you have a choice?
Every right choice means a lesser cruelty.
Every choice of compassion is a road to salvationÖ
How long shall we rape?
How long shall we rob?
When will we learn?




9. Order Of The Dragon
