Track Name: Acedia
let’s get this over …
let’s get this over … with

loaded … crowned
sharpened to a point
keep my weighted … down
to the ground

you know this weakness
(i’m) hoping against hope
(break) out of this prison
it matters not

all my life is sacrificed to faces like my own

you are lying you’re alive
don’t you know
you died long before it hurt
Don’t you know

you came here expecting to shine
open your eyes
the burden you carry is mine
FEEL THE SKY

is this what growing older means
i’ll pass the opportunity

forcibly taken on a life of his own
i’ll never follow you home …

let me die
i won’t say it again
let me die
come and stay till the end
(let me die)
it’s been over
it’s been over – from before you were born
(let me die)
it’s been over
it’s been over – from the calm to the storm

me – you – from beginning to end
me – you – and i called you my friend

FEEL THE WEIGHT SHIFT
SEE THE VEIL LIFT

let’s get it over with
calm is my only bliss
silence my thoughts

you know this weakness
(you’re) hoping against hope
(break) out of this prison
you never knew

all my life is sacrificed to faces like my own

you are lying you’re alive
don’t you know
you died long before it hurt
Don’t you know

this is my life,
long escaping
my own fantasies

now freely taken on a life on my own
don’t wait for me

SHIFT THE WEIGHT
LIFT THE VEIL

OPEN MY EYES
Track Name: Luxuria
i am the night and the day

oh you thought you left me behind
forgot i was one of a kind
controlling your senses
without me you’re deaf and you’re blind

no … way!
i am the night and the day

rise up … fall down
this is when i make you mine

your angel to die for, so sweet
my worshipers weak, still: repeat
a burden so heavy
i’ll never by pleased till you pay

no … way!
i am the night and the day

rise up … fall down
this is when i make you mine

an escape from reality
my eyes help you to see – what’s – freedom
you’ll never let me go
my lies take you to freedom
i’ll never let you go

i’m all yours
'til you fall from grace
i’ll be your sin
come, surrender everything

… know this time you cannot escape
i’m thriving through your pain and hate
prepare for your maker
your light it is fading to grey

my lies take you to freedom
i’ll never let you go

i’m all yours
'til you fall from grace
i’ll be your sin
come, surrender everything

i am the night and the day

rise up … fall down
this is when i say good night

it ends with a smile - goodbye
deprivation of life - your life
it ends with a smile - goodbye
deprivation of life - your life

i’m all yours
'til you fall from grace
i’ll be your sin
come, surrender everything

you were mine
i burned you from within
now i shed your skin
crave my freedom one last time
Track Name: Invidia
see all those faces around me
their minds will never grow
oh i wish they’d fall apart
burn down below
why can’t you see - i g-g-gave all i could be
but now they reap what i sow

envy the joy in your eyes
i’ll pay any price
to see the truth behind your lies

ALL OF US ARE BLIND TO OTHERS
all of us are blind to others

envy the joy in your eyes
i’ll pay the price …

how can i get you to notice
how will you recognize
that i’m left to fall apart
burn down below
won’t you believe - i g-g-gave all i could be
i think i’ll never be free

now - my - crows - fly
through - the - night - sky
all - are - lost - in
my - own - wish - to - die!
why?

i know you see - i g-g-gave all i could be
there’s nothing left inside me

envy the joy in your eyes
i’ll pay any price
to see the truth behind your lies

ALL OF US ARE BLIND TO OTHERS
all of us are blind to others

envy the joy in your eyes
i’ll pay the price …
Track Name: Superbia
growing silence, soothing lullaby
sudden violence, burning rage inside
how eyes hurt

loathing openly
this belligerence
lost in reverie
vain indifference
my eyes hurt

dirt struck at my mask

( … you gods, you fools, you can’t)
no, it comes undone
( … my gods, my fools, i can’t)
no, it can’t be gone

without it wounded, broken hiding-place
blushing bruises, no one, no embrace
how eyes hurt

loathing openly
this belligerence
lost in reverie
vain indifference
my eyes hurt

my pride, in vain
my mind, insane
my life, broken and scarred
don’t leave me now

i was the first to call my name
showing it off and playing my game
these ruins are mine to rebuild
don’t leave me now

my pride – MIRROR MIRROR BURN

i need to disguise me
But still i despise me

( … you gods, you fools, you can’t)
no, it comes undone
( … my gods, my fools, i can’t)
no, it can’t be gone

my pride, in vain
my mind, insane
my life, broken and scarred
don’t leave me now

i was the first to call my name
i was the first to play this game
these ruins are mine to rebuild
don’t leave me now

my pride – MIRROR MIRROR BURN
Track Name: Ira
all these times someone’s pushing at the boundaries
i get brought up short
dare you try not to pry upon my memories
else i feel remorse
can’t let go once it started it is hopeless
i get brought up short
dare you try not to call upon your memories
dare you fail

someone is angry again

broke in two
cast my eyes into the blue
wide awake
but broken, too …
for as long as it hurts i am fighting and still in control
i can’t … can’t … keep …

this is euphoria
demons are all i see
this is euphoria
finally i am free

follow the pain it will lead you to me

noone will ever know
how i keep
but i am born of silence
a silence too deep   

it chafes, it bites
it waits, it hides
in my skin
it bleeds
it can't be kept within

i fail
forced to exhale
i feel it start
it bursts from my heart
too late

come here my son
i've been waiting so long for you here

someone is angry again

whole again
try to hide behind my friend
fast asleep
but broken, still …
for as long as it hurts i am dying and still on my own
i can’t … can’t … keep …

this is euphoria
demons are all i see
this is euphoria
just stay away from me

follow the pain it will lead you to
follow the PAIN

i fail
forced to exhale
i feel it start
it bursts from my heart
too late

come here my son
i've been waiting so long for you here
Track Name: Gula
come here my son
you should always do what you’re told

don’t be shy, taste one
then you better do what you’re told

all this is yours
if you only did what you’re told

please give me, please let me make this my own

give me what’s mine
don’t ask for patience

give me what’s mine
i want it, i need it

give me what’s mine
give me what’s mine

give me, although it’s against my will

a loaded gun
floating silently above my head

never be sated
never be satisfied
the hunger remains at my side

i can’t help but hate it
still i will crave for more
the hunger remains at my side
i’ll never be satisfied

take all - want all - be one - and all -
let me become all

trust me - feed me - face me - heal me -
i will become all

come here my son
i will never do what i'm told

don’t be shy, taste one
i won't ever do what i'm told

all this was mine
if i only did what i was told

please leave me, please i won't make this my own

give me what’s mine
don’t ask for patience

give me what’s mine
i want it, i need it

give me what’s mine
give me what’s mine

give me - although it’s against my will

a loaded gun
floating silently above my head

never be sated
never be satisfied
the hunger remains at my side

i can’t help but hate it
still i will crave for more
the hunger remains at my side
i’ll never be satisfied

give me what’s mine
give me what’s mine
Track Name: Avaritia
burning
wanting
never had enough
i’ll never have enough

fainting
turning
killing
disease

this broken society
won’t still my hunger
my empty thoughts prevail

prevail
(i need more, give me more)
to fail
(always more, just some more)
it never ends
(only more, help me)
choking back the words for you to hear

prevail
(i need more, give me more)
to fail
(always more, just some more)
it never ends
(only more, help me)
i’m forced to want what i have to fear

burning - inside - wanting - to fight - i feel - this time - loosing - the need - causing - this pain

there is - so much - i need - to touch - i need - to see - all this - so much - much more - to gain

look at me now
at first sight - a pale king
this is my vow
i will own - everything

BURN AWAY MY SILENCE
HOLD ME DOWN IN PEACE

LOOK AT ME NOW - A FADING KING
lost all hope in humanity
THIS IS MY VOW - FOR EVERYTHING
these are my lies

there are those who follow
they're never satisfied
yet i’m the one who taints their blood
i’m never pushed aside
you’re my kind

desperate - i am - lonely - lost in - my own - timeless - soulless - mindless - heartless - disease

all this - coldness - offers - ingress - almost - failing - those who - who are - so hard - to please

look at me now
at first sight - a pale king
this is my vow
i will own - everything

BURN AWAY - MY SILENCE
HOLD ME DOWN IN PEACE

LOOK AT ME NOW - A FADING KING
these are my lies

there are those who follow
they're never satisfied
yet i’m the one who taints their blood
i’m never pushed aside
you’re my kind

are you the one who follows
you’re never satisfied
yet i’m the one who drains your blood
i lurk inside your mind
where you can’t hide
Track Name: From Hell
oh so much for the human touch
in your every word it was make believe

you’re not far behind
scared to lose my mind
how long till I find the light

breathe down my neck

in my mind whispers in the night
breaking every bond I have tried to bind

running out of time
you’re not far behind
how long till I find the light

reach out and bring me down

should I have seen the sin, 
pulling me back inside

(freedom)
i’m forcing my way through the black
(mindless)
i’m feeling his gaze on my back
there is a fire
(human)
his hate it is burning my skin
(nature)
afraid that I stay lost within
there is a fire

what is the day
without the night?
why would you stay
without a fight?

should I embrace the sin, 
pulling me back inside

(freedom)
i’m losing my way to the light
(mindless)
i’m turning and follow the night
there is a fire
(human)
his love it is warming my skin
(nature)
I’m free now I’ll stay lost within
this is my fire

come join me forget what you saw
embrace all my virtues of war
burn with my fire
and leave them behind
life is for the living
