1. Until they Returned

Until They Returned

Into the silence of endless regard,
A raven is crying as if he stands guard.
Protecting with Proudness those who have stayed,
Proclaiming the dunkirk increased just their hate.

Deceiving silence is covering the land,
Some soldiers, now rotten, have swords in their hands.
Still in demand for those who have won,
They proudly return and sing their last song.

Proud and glorious,
For the ancient, the living
Our faith won´t fade!
King, our majesty,
The holy flame of honor,
Will burn forever and more.

Glorious and Loud, their song was spread,
Everybody knew that everybody was dead!
Lightnings were enlightning the Sky,
Mother Earth is telling you: Kill or Die !

But with the next lightning everything changed,
When the dead bodies rose and ranged
Holding their swords in rotten hands,
Ready to take revenge for the sake of their lands.

Proud and glorious,
For the ancient, the living
Our faith won´t fade!
King, our majesty,
The holy flame of honor,
Will burn forever and more.




2. Dread of War

Dread Of War

See it in the sky
Smell it in the air
The war is coming

For those who do not fight - flee


And the tanks roll again
Smash what gets beneath
The decay of all hope began that day
When the forces of chaos departed to bring

Disease by starving the winter brought
Many gave their lives
Some soldiers in fight from trench to trench
It was so senseless to believe in victory

(Refrain)

Shrapnels - teared cries
Of a brave man in the air
Tortured by the pain in his chest
And soon he died under

Cries of his family
The parents lost all their sons
Only eighteen years old the youngest was
When he died in Sibiria

Dread of war
Dread of fear
We belive - in fear
Dread of war
Dread of fear
They have heard,
They will all die

-they will all die!


Pack all your things and go, flee!
Give up your dreams and go, flee!
Leave your house, leaving your mind
Get away the dread, don't get eaten by the storm of hate!
Pack all your things and go, flee!
Give up your dreams and go, flee!
Leave your house, leaving your mind
Get away the dread, don't get eaten by the storm of hate!




3. The Final Rear

The Final Rear

See the folk,
March for justice,
See the folk,
March for blood


This ruin was the place,
The old man tells the children,
Where thousands died of greed for gold - half a century ago
The commons attacked the fortress,
Built from the lord's taxes
The fight went on, seven days - until the fortress fell

Drums for the commons,
Drums and the steel
The masses - break at the gates
Fighting from the anger
Fighting for gold
When the morning rises - the stronghold burns

On the walls - fightings from man to man
Burning houses - heat up and illuminate the battleground
As final rear up - the gates are opened, the cavalry attacks

Ladders stand on the walls
The commons throw the ropes
Bombardment of self-made catapults - blow towers into dust
Wounded soldiers cry for death
Hit by rough stones
Even children of the settlement - fight up to death

Drums for the commons,
Drums and the steel
The masses - break at the gates
Fighting from the anger
Fighting for gold
When the morning rises - the hands are full of blood
- hands full of blood




4. In the Issue of Time

Prologue (of Two Towers)

When you flee into sanctum,
Protecting yourself from creatures out in the wastelands.
When the world's end is near,
Once sent through Ginnungagab.
The war has threatened the great civilisation,
Created to beat time,
Split up into different tribes - killing each other
For the perfection of their own
Why do you think you could mess with time itself?

The battlements protect no more, they had returned in anger, in bloodlust.
The people were slaughtered by their own ancestors. The final rear has failed.
Beaten by the past... Why do you think you could mess with time itself?

Its upon the end and you realize:
You are the last one of the immortal race...
Dying under the great relict of the two towers.
Towers, built to symbolize the reign of the master tribe.
The towers decay and bury your shell in the inner sanctum.

In the end - it has been your destination
In the end - just dust in the issue of time




5. Two Towers

Two Towers

You lead your tribe,
Whole your live has passed,
Live´s destiny,
End seems to be
So close

All your memories sting like cold needles in your mind,
As long wasted time hurts like liquid fire

A great civilisation should beat mortality
The golden towers built of knowledge - affords for eternity
Break to dust!

Two towers stand - among the sky
To show our might - to face the time
As you see - GOD are we
Built for all time -
Built for our reign

I see your towers - collapsing!
Worn by the centuries.
In order to bury your people under itself.
Your great civilization - purges - like everything,
In the spirit of the world.
Your creations - are now ruins,
Your visions are scattered dust
In the spirit of the world.

The last thoughts of your existence - wasted in look for debt
Who has failed, who is to accuse?

Remainder live - disappears, what do you reach?
Your corpse lies down between the ruins of your creation
Die in dust

Two towers stand - among the sky
To show our might - to face the time
As you see - GOD are we
Built for all time -
Built for our reign




6. Lamiae, Mistress of Souls

Lamiae, Mistress Of Souls

The ghosts prepare,
For war again.
Every night - soldiers died
In the dawn - the carnage begun
The ghosts prepare,
For war again.
To suffer defeat,
Under the Mistress´ eye
Crying a marble tear

The Memorian stands apart,
White statue of Stone.
It´s a young lady,
Named Lamiae.

Emanate to be in mourning.
Emanate to endow snug
Engraved in the statues base,
Soul prisons in Letters!

Sword on Shield!
Axe on Blade
Slices in transparent flesh
Force to fight
Force To die
A never-ending stream
Hammer on bone
Dagger in back
Smashing endless bodies
Not even those
Will bury their grave
Grace under Lamiae's eye

Imprisoned Souls
Since 40 Jears ago,
Caught by the dolor,
Caught by tears.
Resign memento
To end the spirits desease

See the banished souls,
Once defenders in honor,
Once suiciders.
Sacrificed themselves.

Prevented destruction,
By abandoning mortality.
Lamiae´s children held
In mind cages

Sword on Shield!
Axe on Blade
Slices in transparent flesh
Force to fight
Force To die
A never-ending stream
Hammer on bone
Dagger in back
Smashing endless bodies
Not even those
Will bury their grave
Grace under Lamiae's eye

Imprisoned Souls
Under the Mistress' eye
Caught by the dolor,
Caught by tears.
Resign memento
To end the spirits desease

The ghosts prepare,
For war again.
Every night - soldiers died
In the dawn - the carnage begun
The ghosts prepare,
For war again.
To suffer defeat,
Under the Mistress´ eye
Crying a marble tear




7. Battlements of Abomination

Battlements Of Abomination

Holy flesh - we need you
Holy flesh - we eat you

No regrets, no regards
Once a nice smile - just a farce
In between of needs and anger
Nothings left that we could hang on

What means a bad word
What means a lie
Its just about to kill or die
Nothing can count than me and I
The only way out: suicide

They eat their legs
Each one anothers
Thatís why they cringe
Before their brothers
They can't talk
But if one bothers
They eat his brain
And feast on the blood of the insane

When I look down
From my battlements
I see the flesh crawling around
Smell the beauty stinks

Lies, betrayal
Come surround my seat
Come and sing together
In tainted harmony

Softly Iíll asleep this night
Covered myself with my innocence
Cannot feel the demon rising inside
Steals my blood, rapes my soul, my pride

And I feel like drinking; Drink all my blood
Bring me up to bloodlust, bring me to the assault
Rise my sword, smash their bones, kill our guilty
And I leave the battlements

When I look down
From my battlements
I see the flesh crawl around
Smell the beauty stinks

Lies, betrayal
Come surround my seat
Come and sing together
In tainted harmony

Battlements of abomination
Battlements - break the domination
Battlements of abomination
Battlements Ė kill the pupulation




8. Ginnungagab

Ginnungagab

Before the ancient seas, there was an abyss, endless, deep
No light no grief Ė even death held sleep
Nor mountains, hollows, chosen light for heartiness
Ginnungagab Ė pure in lifelessness

Slowly left from out her stiffness
Spread her weakened wings
And left the ground and hang like fog
From out chaos life to bring

And the fog compounded to drops
And the drops to well
Hwergelmir has fed the stream
That to north and south would dwell

Ginnungagab!

Northerly, towards Nifelheim
Fog and freeze seized the land
Where the shadows aged, life-source froze
Eliwagar lost in thunderstorm

Southerly it was warm and bland
Surturís realm of fire
Scintillating all be gone
Water to steam, life to ashes

Ginnungagab - Life-source frozen
Ginnungagab!
Ginnungagab - Life to ashes
Ginnungagab!

When it breaks up anything to feel
And the anger in us is not to kill
When the moon is not and the sun ain't shining too
Ginnungagab, might breathe in you

Come the life, come the life, come the dread
With the ever-first look upon the holy bread
With their envy in their eyes
They look like zombies on ravenís days

Cries of envy in the south
And the morning of life spread out
Moulden by the fate
Foul of dissension, full of hate!
Hate!

So, before the rise to glory
The fall began
Noone now could know
That soon comes death
Soon is the end

But here the tale
Had just begun
When the Three came down
Amorphous judge
And lead the way
To destiny

When the Three came down
Fulfilled in light
They end the restless
And start the fight

As long as good and evil
Fight and pray
Eternal hate must grow
And seize the day

Create our gods
And create ourselves
To bring us glory
To bring us death Ė when its all over!
