Track Name: The Inner Enemy
*INSTRUMENTAL*
Track Name: Fear of the Unknown
Shadows are surrounding me, absorbed in my own nightmare.
Rage and anger take control.
Seeking the way out!

The answer did not appear, what have I done wrong?
I just need to know,
how can I move on?

Cut this tension!
Can not take this anymore.
The feelings inside - bending my thoughts!

Living in the past, bleeding for the future.
The present stands still.
Trying to escape this life!

Running through a frozen fear, drowning in my own thoughts,
A bullet to my head, end this now!

Cut this tension!
Can not take this anymore.
The fear of the unknown - eating my soul!

Loyal to your dread, unable to face the truth.
Filth is all around, times remain the same.
Cease the madness, hesitance will fade away.
You have the strength, fight for your peace of mind!

Cut this tension!
Can not take this anymore.
The fear of the unknown - eating my soul!
Track Name: The Ceremony (Cut to the Point)
I'm coming closer.
The knife in my hand as they're smiling.
Emissary for your redemption
Determining for you what's right.

I irrigate you with the beverage,
Intoxicate you as you cry.
The blade shines upon your small body
In a blink of an eye.

Over!
Now you are just like the flock,
Regret is unattainable
Too young to obtain own decisions - taking them for you though.
Wonder
The life you could have if the masses
Would really care for you.
Suffering magical orders
Which you will do to someone new.

It's your turn to take the decisions.
The knife in your hand - pass it through
To the man in emissary costume.
SO WHAT WILL YOU DO?

He irrigates him with the beverage,
Intoxicates him as he cries.
You grab the blade off of his body,
A chain cut dry!

Why can’t we make our own values?
Domineering order that's full of disorder so what will you take?
WHAT WILL YOU TAKE?!

Try to forgive my imitation
Of this concept which hurts us all.
Forcing us thoughts about creation,
Knocking us to mind control.

Barbarian culture of puppets
Deceived to commit such sick crimes,
Trivially following prophets - to whom do you lie?

Over!
Now you are just like the flock,
Regret is unattainable
Too young to obtain own decisions - taking them for you though.
Wonder
The life you could have if the masses
Would really care for you.
Suffering magical orders
Which you will do to someone new.
Track Name: Proteopathic
Faith is now controlling your lives,
Shame is lost in desperation.
Imposing siege supposedly for redemption.
Split society lacks communication!

Lack of awareness - too many lies!
Erasing all good for the evil!

Assassins fight in the name of their gods,
Protests against indoctrination.
Irresponsible wars over occupied lands,
Push nonbelievers aside.

Like trojan horses hidden in humanity
They'll always slow the rest of us down.
Take a step or two backwards, try to see
How a bypass is to find.

We live our lives in all different ways - our mutual end is in the grave!

Religions took away our freedom,
Made us kill innocents.
Our path to destruction,
Surrendered along with our enemies!

Prevalent stories full of imagination,
Words locked in golden chains.
Folklore contradicting reality.
Thoughts desecrated, feel no pain.

Stop forcing us with your ideology,
Arrogance will lead you to none.
Sympathize others the way you love yourself,
Consider it as a privilege you have.

You're not the only one in this world so stop acting as one!
Egocentrism took control, it happens when worlds collide!

Religions took away our freedom,
Made us kill innocents.
Our path to destruction,
Surrendered along with our enemies!
Track Name: The Hunger Games
Old one crawling - hungry poor man
Near starvation!
Once was fine until addiction,
Just a fact - he's not to blame.
Stood up walking, got assisted - restoration!
Yet he's falling - wrong decision
Once again!

Feel as you were insufficient,
Enough you had!
Brazenly ignoring problems
Out of your comforting stance.
Let me hand you little something,
One thing that I wish you had:
Just a mirror for reflecting
State and mind incoherence.

Cry for you have nothing to eat.
You've already got donations,
But now you're gonna live in the streets.
Missed your chance to fix it all!

Cry as you are begging for meat.
Money spilled right to your wallet,
But now you're gonna live in the streets,
'CAUSE YOU DRANK IT ALL!

Now widely observe the problem.
Try to expand your field of view.
This isn't just one poor man,
In many terms - both me and you!

Mental illness - fake euphoria,
Disconnection!
Public sickness - mass histeria,
Don't realize it's just a game.
Oblivious nation - can't get sober,
Inflammation!
Fun and all 'til game is over,
Blind to all what we became.

Cry for you have nothing to eat.
You've already got donations,
But now you're gonna live in the streets.
Missed your chance to fix it all!

Cry as you are begging for meat.
Missing moments you were sober,
But now you're gonna live in the streets,
’CAUSE YOU DRANK IT ALL!
Track Name: Turn On The Lights
Everything around us is temporary,
The damage we've done will remain.
We won't stay on this planet forever,
We get new signs for its end.

Our children will pay the price.
Nature keeps suffering.
Wars, neglect and arrogance - no way back!

Change!
Reverse the decay.
Become the insperation,
change your state of mind.

The surreal solution of finding a different place to live in
Is detached from reality.
The brainstorm needs to work in every one of us.
Wake up!
And stop being part of a flock.

Change!
Reverse the decay.
Become the insperation,
Change your state of mind.
Now you have to open your eyes,
For how long will you be blind?
The future’s not bright,
TURN ON THE LIGHTS!

Change!
Reverse the decay.
Become the insperation,
Change your state of mind.
Now you have to open your eyes,
For how long will you be blind?
TURN ON THE LIGHTS!
Track Name: We Will Stand As One
Our friends were tortured,
Our families burned alive.
We’ve lost the will to live,
We’ve lost our faith in god!

Throughout our history
We were the survivors.
In different times and places,
They didn’t feel guilt or obligation.

Blood spilled everywhere,
That was the way we suffered.
It all seemed to have no end,
Waited for salvation!

Throughout our history
We were the survivors.
In different times and places,
They didn’t feel guilt or obligation.

Now we are strong,
No one will degrade us.
That shame has to stop!
They won't catch us
With our pants down.
That time is over because
We are united,
No one will degrade us.
That shame has to stop!
They won't catch us
With our pants down because
We will stand as one!

Now they try to tear us apart,
Separate us from the world,
Let us feel like we don’t belong,
The same old misery again.

Now we are strong,
No one will degrade us.
That shame has to stop!
They won't catch us
With our pants down.
These times will be over now!

They never appreciated the truth,
We will never shut our mouth.

Throughout our history
We were the survivors.
In different times and places,
They didn’t feel guilt or obligation.

Now we are strong,
No one will degrade us.
That shame has to stop!
They won't catch us
With our pants down.
That time is over because
We are united,
No one will degrade us.
That shame has to stop!
They won't catch us
With our pants down because
We will stand as one!
Track Name: Selection of Blindness
Lacerations within the society,
Trapped between left and right.
Degenerated friendships - mad conclusions.
Chaos underneath the different thoughts,
Distorted minds, persecuted heart.
Blurring reality like putting sock on your hand.

Misleading truth.
The eyes don't believe their sight.
Hypocritical faces.
Platform for different hearts.

Staying on the same spot,
Jammed in an endless conflict.
Sinking in past mistakes,
The future goes to waste.

Between the hammer and the anvil,
Forgetting how it started.
Disagreements between congregations!

Fundamentally corrupted,
Self empowerment.
Its all about personal legitimacy,
Fake honor and pride.

Dream became a nightmare.
Motivated by illusions.
Abundant of unjust fortune.
Independent existence.
Track Name: Night Guardian
This place with all the stories,
No one left after one night.
With my insane imagination,
And the painful life I‘ve had.
Now I have been chosen,
To be the night guardian.
Leaving the fear behind
To fulfill my goal.

All of a sudden
Unexpected thing happened,
The lifeless fossils
Reborn from the fear.

That night was a weird experience,
I felt as if they had something to tell,
But now the sun shines again,
And life is back to be the same.
If I only knew the history
Then it would be possible to change the future,
But the daylight made me close the book
And the gap in it still remains.

I thought I got used to it
But the magic happened again,
The lifeless fossils
Reborn from the fear.
Those amazing creatures
Told me the truth behind the curse.
To be the savior of the next day
I must find the watchers from the past.

Let the chase begin - time to have no mercy!

The people that I trusted had betrayed me,
They tried to steal the artifact.
A big pursuit has been started,
Eventually we traced them and got it back.
Everything returned to it's original place,
And from now on we had no fear.
That bad part of our life came to a temporary end
Until the next episode...
Track Name: Apocalypse has Begun
New day has arrived,
Now I can forget the past.
This place - renewed,
There is no reason to stop this now.
The sun is rising,
The faith provides us a new world.
No reason to feel numb,
THE APOCALYPSE HAS BEGUN!

The skies are blue - white clouds.
The fear has gone,
No more deceptions in this world today,
Times have changed.
Haunted dreams are over,
Living in a world of new opportunities.

“The hope is now alive,
This generation will be stronger,
A new perspective is now effecting our lives,
We had enough of that corruption,
The change had to be done,
So now, now it’s our time to shine!
Erase the past! Erase the mistakes you've already done!
Today is a new day, a new dream, a way to a different path.”

Memories from the past
Will be gone and let us live.
Revolution in our world
Will make us feel invulnerable.
The moon goes down,
Replaced by the rising sun.
Region of the divine wrath
Won’t remain as it used to be!

The skies are blue - white clouds.
The fear has gone,
No more deceptions in this world today,
Times have changed.
Haunted dreams are over,
Living in a world of new opportunities.

Sail into your dreams,
They won’t let you down.
Being approached with a new perspective
Is an essential part of your life.
A nontrivial solution - finding a truthful meaning,
Take opportunities thyself - which requires living on!

Betrayal and curse
Were a big part of us.
Now it’s time to break the rules
With freedom and dignity.
Being grateful of what we are,
Being proud of what we've become.
The goal of your existence is
To live your life without regrets!

The skies are blue - white clouds.
The fear has gone,
No more deceptions in this world today,
Times have changed.
Haunted dreams are over,
Living in a world of new opportunities.
