Heaven Shall Burn
ALBUMS / SONGS / LYRICS
To erase three generations. To slaugther millions of dreams. A monument of suffering. Build from human flesh. A world taken away from ever. Existence turns to ashes. How many poets dies, how many books. Were never written, so many songs we´ll. Never hear, so many friends we´ll never neet. No anwser to find. No killers left to charges. Wash from hands in innocence. Our crime is called forgetting. Just one bloodshed in history. But our shame for ever.
I don´t know when it came. This cold, it fills my soul. I still feel a fire, but I dosn´t. Warm anynore. Where is all energy, we once got from love? Paralyze througths, our hands are frozen. Empty eyes - There are no words, there are no tears. A few stars left, but too far to reach. All green seem like grey in the dark. Who said it would be over soon. Who thought we could conquer our nature? Impossible to overcome, there is no end. Nothing will disappear, but all will change. There will be no path, but we have to march. All throught the cold.
No single fate, a broken generation. Once guide by hope, now fallen into despair. The chosen few play their game. A man, his hands want to grasp, but they don´t need him anymore. His eyes without light, his walk weak and still. He lost all pride already years ago. Sleeplessness every night - Throught of regret. He knows there will be a tomorrow, but why wake up again. All he wanted was freedom, the hope to perhaps fulfill some dreams. A better life for his children, a little piece from the sky... But fate betrayed him again. Family and friendship, the only things he never had Destroyed by comsuption, replaced by egoism and greed, just shame remains. From the very beginning he had no role in the game. Given up, driven to alcohol, to forget about everything. The hope of a revolutioner died, silent, slowly and forever.
Symbols of addiction - It won´t hit your life just over night. It creeps and wait inside you - Longing for weak moments. Reaching control step by step, but too strong my will, too oure my oath. Inside my heart I feel are creatures of light where demons rule. I´ll cary colours of life, where wind wind just blows ashes away. No need for false fortune - No mercy from me for your fallen heroes.
Now I know you knew it all before. It was doomed to failure - All my love and all my dreams. My empty eyes embrace the sky. Impossible to penetrate your clouds. The epidemic you created fills my heart, infescts my soul. With my broken hands I´ll never reach your stars. My frozen skin is longing for a fire. An outcast you created to feel stength. To rule a world of addicts. Your paradise no place for me. All feelings lost, the rain of ice. But if I drowned - I´ll take all of you with me.
One moment further. A connection diminished. An increasing power. And become a stranger. Protected by my outside. Continue this way of gathring. Harmony slowly guides me. To cross all illusions. They accuse the witnesses As I try to get out. The future won´t get to them.
Tell me what is left from life, if no sunrise lights your world? Can´t believe you´ve been through all this pain, all this pain I know your eyes saw the same sky as i see today, You smelled the leaves, You felt the wind. I know they imprisoned your body, but how could they subdue Your thoughts? I know about the drowned and the saved. Where will be my side. Whose decision marks my path. Will i ever know the end I die again Now i´m one of you. No dream, that keeps me alive, no warmth reaches my skin. Their methods broke into My brain, took away my existence and even my name, Reduced me to numbers. When will this killingmachine breaking my spine? I know millions walk in and just a few will leave it behind. I´ve got no more power, i´ve got no more power Hope dies together with feelings, it dosn?t hurt anymore I know I´m one of the drowned.
Out of my hands. The world lies in debris. I carry the load. But I am alone. Where is the ligth. That once filled my world. Where is the fire. That once warmed my soul, all turn away. Walk alone, feel the cold. There is no hope to without. Knowing your powers. There is no passion without. Knowing your aims. Why shall we live under clouds. Separated from our love? There is a ligth we can reach together. That fills our minds, that answer our questions. That give the warmth our. Frozen hearts need to beat in harmony. Our innerself is the forme we´re always looking for. Trust in yourself. You´re strong as long. As you believe in your hearts. Only our passion, our love will avert the ruin.
A suffering race, what will remain. My world comes down. I´m not divine anymore. All power leaves - My blood is gray. My guiding light of hope - A dying sun Darkness rises, a chill limps our love. Where I am... Who I am... All that once belonged together. Divided by hatred. Emotions died - my dreams... ...asunder.
A book full of lies, Masses are herded like sheep. Greed kills the need, Do you hear the crying of the innocent? Bones are breaking in your killing machine. Blood flows in your rivers of corruption. How can you listen to the battlecries, without turning red in the face?
Suffocated in the exhaust of our machines, as we turn our faces away, and hold our tongues driven by ignorance and greed, climatic changes, floods and quakes. Agony of mother earth -- wounds nobody will ever heal. We produce and consume more and more, we kill and we rape again and again. Collective suicide -- our future entranced. A sea of ashes, where deep forests grew. On our way to the top we just left deserts behind cleaned and burned. Barren landscapes. Contaminated soil. By polluting our rivers, we poison our blood. By devastating our forest, we slaughter our souls. The signals can´t be ignored. The time to change is long overdue. This disease will be cured. But our children will be the first to go.
I know words don´t touch you anymore. Weakness, social failure -- an ancient phantom caught your hearts. Following a leader, selling your souls, you´re not above, you´re so far below like sheep on the shambles, you´re like tools in their hands. Given up your existence, your dignity, you´ll never take over, never again! Raise my fist, the streets are ours. You´ll never bring it down, you will surrender. Depression and hatred are not enough for winning this fight. Resistance deep from inside. It burns in our hearts.
Here we march through the snow, here we lie in the mud. The wind aches like a thousand on my skin, my walk mechanic. My thoughts far away, unable to act, feel numb to the distress. I can´t remember freedom, forgot all faces I loved. No cry for help through the wire, my existence a number on my skin. It will take all my power, my last will to live. I hear the sirens. Searching lights roam through the night, reports, bloodhounds and hunters -- orders are clear, our tombs already dug. Our names on the crosses. I´m running, no looking back, no feelings at all, will I be free? Will I be free at last? Will I ever kiss your face again? The sun will be mine again and I´ll feel the rain, feelings return from my body. I can´t believe that I´m still alive. Now I remember your face, your words, your smile.
Take your god out of my life Your words mean nothing to me Your messages are just lies One word, one lie One word, one lie, one pocket full of money How can someone die when he never existed? A cycle of illusions crosses the land Burn it down Your illusions kill your mind Pay in the name of god or pay for nothing Lie!
This beatiful world, it looks so nice filled whit sound and light, it smells so fine so much bliss, so much perfection a modern world a new society life is fast, but I´m not fast enough. Wealth and recognition to the strong, the paradise is here, but i´m too weak. No graceful look, no charming smile, fate has set me down - below you all hold us captive - behind a wall of silence. We live our life in a prison of ignorance. One of the forgotten - an unwanted son a life made just for you - not me and my equals. I know, my feelings are not worth the pain. Will you affected pitty ever turn to respect. How can I long for warmth and love at all? Do you think my heart is dead? I should be dead, slain or poisoned - and everything could be so easy for you.
Deep inside my heart, where their reign will get no power. Where their violence can not hurt me. I will breed the thoughts and ideals, that bring them down, down to their knees. Their poisoned souls are wicked minds, these eyes have seen the death of freedom, but no fist ever rose. This righteous rage consumed by ignorance. Freedom - My heart is strong. One truth - I will not fall. Passion - I´m not alone. Denial - Your lies will burn. My heart is strong, I swear I will not fall. I´m not alone, I know we´ll rise to bear the worlds in us. They can´t erase the world in me - too deep inside, too strong in me. I´ll bring it to life, more than just dreams. The vision that keeps me upright their only truth will rot in peace, crack down their ideals. I´ll watch them burn, I´ll see them fall.
Last words of confidence still penetrate the cannonthunder, so many daring dreams will fall, the vision of a better world dies in the bombingrain. No time to say farewell, the world shall hear about their fight. Betrayed by spineless servants, conspiracies - so many heroes shot from behind. No thoughts of giving in, no stampede - no more negotiating. This desesperate fight will set a sing - they died with the gun in their hands. Time will avenge one day. The sky is colored red by the martyr´s blood, the same sky under which. The victors marching in again, bringing back the slavery, the oldest order, under rule again - it´s been too early, but they shall rise again. If it all came down to me, would I shed my blood for what I lived for? Would I clench my fist until the last breath?
Conformity, the agony of freedom. An epidemic eats our worlds. I know your eyes will be to weak to see the way to walk. Not able to live the single moment. Your skin is far to cold to feel a kiss. Feeling numb to all this suffering. Where is the place we use to hide? Will it be enough to tell you about the freedom you could have. About the stars, the green, the happiness, about the soulless slaves you´re following. Will this be wnough to overcome the mechanism, that keeps you away from our hands they will never suffocate this fire. They will never extinguish my flame. I won´t let you fall from my hands. I´ll fight until the end, I promise. It burns within!
Abandonment, you´ve taken all I´ve given here´s no haven anymore, prepare myself for falling. I´m drowning, there is no hand to reach for me. So starving, no noble mind will feed me, will anoint my aching wounds. Now I´m on my knees, petitioning your false deity, crying and begging, no anwser will be given. Broken down before a false divinity. Then I saw the lies, I know the truth at last. I won´t implore this darken sky, never awaiting a cure, won´t listen to your melodies, this lie will not be lived. It´s all in me, all I´ll ever need, I´ll rise again, no more Abandonment stronger than ever before, stronger than you´ll ever be.
To see the world with sober eyes, if everybodies mind is paralyzed by thumping lies. Looking in the face of their fake savior, this assassin of humanity, without respect, without fear. Wee see the awful thoughts behind his golden words, we hear the coming doom, there will be no paradise you´ll never rule the few upright, the few, who think and act. It´s far beneath this nation´s dignity who walk the tyrant´s way. Refuse to close our eyes, refuse to follow them, never sacrifice our animus. We are no army they could fight against; we are the poisoned youth, that still remembers liberty, that still his thinking free. You didn´t trample all the flowers before they spread their seeds.
One by one they fall - and I just close my eyes. It won´t be over soon - do you regret this time? I thought so many things were certain. So many friends turned to the ones I hate. You fade away forever - the hands of time. I wanna see the things just how they are feel them, like a child would do. Will this kid in me will survive this process? Narrowed minds - I´ll burst your mental chains even, if I´ll live like them - my heart is free. I won´t become a tool, a puppet. I´ll bite the hand that wants to feed me. My will to live against your world of zombies. Blindfold the eye, that watches all of us and even, if I live like them my heart is free. I´ll never walk your way - whatever it may take. You never break my will - whatever it may take.
More and more, this certainty will rise. It´s far too late, until you´ll understand. More than ever, I feel there is no way. To make you see, what´s so drownright. They betrayed the generations after them, framed their childrens, left a fateful wisdom you still consume, consume this matricide. You still believe, believe these fatal lies. Their machines, they kill for us. But if we refuse, if we remonstrate at last. They will go down! They shall stand still. Forever! How can you be so indifferent to this creeping ecocide? I´ll fight against this way of thinking, to make you see, it dies! This is my war, an Ecowar! My mother earth will not be assassinated by these parasites. This is my war, an Ecowar!
One life, one hope - this is our life in hell punished for telling the truth, for unwanted ideals. Innocence means nothing here - we stand and fall together, the only way to ever leave this barren hill. The smile of a child set free our minds, a symbol of life in this domain of death they want to erase it, if these bastards ever come to know, they´ll kill us all. They search everywhere - everyday, they infiltrate us, they torture they slew my best friends, as he would never betray as he saved the boys life, he set a world free. A symbol of moral victory, we´re invincible! We raised from the dead, winged by this struggle, we judged our tormentors, they fled like cowardly bastards. The boys grew in freeom, we saved the whole world.
The grass is green today, here where my brothers lay. Buried in this goddanm ground, where I lost my life forever too. How can it be? - the sun, it shines today over fieds and hills - where we lived in the mud, where we heard the thunder we met the beast of mandkind - as we arched into the fire. No light, no wind, no calm - It was no place on earth at all. One by one my comrades died, sacrificed in the battle of brothers. Thrown into the fire - to make a few meters of land. We left our homes with a smile, as we arched to the music - as we said farewell to our beloved, we felt like heroes so high awaited glory and honor - became cheap canonfodder instead the few, who returned are broken forever rain washed away our blood - our cries gone with the wind but forever in my head, My soul has burned in the fire, I had the hell on earth. Will you remember?
Endliess nights of persecution. Reopening wounds - never healed. Always willing to suppress our attempts to be free. Violence is always a tool in so called democraty. Agents of the state allowed to spread terror, seeking to eliminate sparks of political resistance. Endless nights of violation. Breeding fear - anguished cries. A blood oath to never surrender. Committed to the struggle. Until all fences are burned. You´ll try the taste of pain we endure every day. To quit without resisting would be to live in vain. Attentive eyes guard the tents in the twilight. Women and men ready to counterattack. Full moon shines... The enemy crawls in the dead of night. No way back... The masked cops take their final step. You´re trapped. Surrounded by the mass. Laws are ignored. Justice from bleeding hands.
Words - these words of freedom A bequest - never to be silenced In this world of lies, the truth, it means resistance To make the masses see and sense their needs He healed so many aching hearts and wounds And threw back the baseness - back to where it came from Aspired from the middle of his brothers Charged this suffering and oppression One single voice became a storm His words and melodies - the weapon they fear Threw back the baseness - back from where it came Nobody is chosen to suffer Nobody is destined to rule Gagged his mouth but not his songs, the songs we sing Fettered his hands but not the words he wrote These songs we´ll sing! "Silence and screams are the end of my song." - Victor Jara
A generation raised in darkness Controlled, polluted - fed with the truth A truth that blinds their view Their ways and fates decided - implanted sorrows kill their needs A common way to happiness, but I never learned to sell myself Poets became silent, While clowns arose and burned the books again No thinkers daring vision grew, Where thieves ran free and crippled human dignity In the noise of unimportance And stupidity the sceptic´s whispers went unheard Be sure, this storm will not drown my voice Be sure, my hands will sow the seeds of reason I´ll never be a minor, I´ll never be a happy slave May this cold sever my face And my the pain weaken my fists No inner strife will touch me The only truth is in my heart
Greed and addiction drowned their pity Washed away their thoughts of compassion and regret A world left wounded, slaved and raped Your paradise is hell for your descendants Cathedrals of justice in a kingdom of hypocrisy Castles of self-righteousness built on graves Masses kept in forlorn, nations laid to waste The dynamo of northern golden age Darkened our future, blinded by greed Sold your fate to the highest price I don´t believe in you! You are the enemy! A rush into our doom, as if your God came down And cures all failure
See them die! They Die! A rain of blood should cover our world Stench and decay should be the only thing we sense But hidden in the dark and erased from our heads Barbarity and slaughter are everywhere A contemptible ethic, a relict For the weakest of the weak For the lowest of the low My voice for the voiceless My fists for the innocent On the edge of a new age this is still our dogma No grave for millions - tortured creatures, But a common grave for our morals This slaughter - an ethic I deny An archaic way of thinking, so monstrous and absurd
Dreams torn to pieces, broken like glass Hope faded away, withered like leaves Not knowing is blessing, ignorance the only protection Nothing is numbing my pain The fragments of my faith Became the blade in my hand Just darkness my eyes see Pushed me to the end of all dead-end-streets A curse - cannot lie to myself I´m doomed - cannot silence my heart Fear is the tool, conformity our medicine How can I smile as this age dies, like everybody else Dancing around the fire, that burns this world Cannot bend down, I would just break I hate myself for playing their game Parents poison their children, never teach them to question If it only wasn´t for this certainty in me I am a giant in their tiny world
Risen from the ashes, the ashes of the dreams you burned So many wars these eyes have seen So many agonies my soul went through I died with them so many years ago Just in darkness my eyes see the world There is nothing more to lose Forlorn in desperation, the fruits of your power A world of slaves and servants - the only aim to rule them all Punishment to nonconformists, death and terror to the upright ones Coups and interventions, nothing will be uncontrolled My life against your reign A final judgement will be given You come with me, this is the end A time will come for all of you To harvest the storm My blood will drown your flame of greed The time has come for you: To harvest the storm No single tear, no single scream A silent smile - the time is now A moment of redemption The time has come : To harvest the storm
Deceived of all your dreams Betrayed by all your leaders This shall no place to be This, a dead-end future Take a walk through grey, concrete deserts Apathetic faces, empty eyes - the only thing you will see A whole country bleeding to death One big illusion - bleeding to death No young hands to built it up Cities fall to ruin Just old men left to mourn Four decades of a life denied Abused good will to exploit us Brothers turned to victors Fooled by ancient propaganda A bottle - your illusion Your home just like a colony
Kept away from daylight Deprived from all the songs I loved These walls may hold my body captive, But my soul is attending every sunset This is the hardest there was to walk, But nothing I regret Our death would only be the thing they´re praing for, Time won´t force us to surrender, Their crippled freedom is not the one we´re longing for, As all else failed we raised our fists and weapons, Not born as soldiers, but driven to the end These wounds will be like memories, enhancing my existence And our scars shall be the seals of freedom I know that time heals nothing Never casting down my eyes before the tyrant´s throne I know that our screams will sound out to the world, Our blood will be like water for the tree of freedom These wounds will be like memories, enhancing my existence These wounds will be like memories, cannot banish this idea This idea will overcome all walls and fences A young man´s deeds became an old man´s wisdom
One voice, one power, the people´s will arose, Slew the tyrant and burned his castles, brought down A supreme blooded pestilence once more Under the same dawn advocates of wealth and freedom spread their words like prophets do Bring them down! Down to their knees! Down to this greed! Fooling us again, while our screams not even silenced This rage has been a weapon, but our hope will bring the doom So many times I prayed:, so many times I died! We burst the chains And now we should be on our own, but the fear of tomorrow Will drive you to their arms again The golden age we´re celebrating creeps out of the womb of the same old lie A child of tyranny and hatred A heaven for the chosen few
Once risen from the dark centuries With inflamed hearts and noble minds Now driven by a vision of the glowing world And lighted nations in freedom Now blinded, chained and strangled Thrown into a dungeon of corruption Our fathers wisdom lies Mercenaries in a war against ourselves Petitioning dastardly idols And following a godless savior Puppets of consumption unlearned creating A mendacious wealth secured by silent slaves Inane parents, mistead children raised to soldiers... Mercenaries in war against ourselves A waste of precious blood and dignity Petitioning dastardly idols And following a godless savior We let them come to power Unless we unleash enlightment! An ancient dogma builds new kingdoms Unless we unleash enligtment!
No one will shed a tear With frozen souls and darkened eyes We´re marching to the point of no return No sorrow strong enough to tear apart our bleeding hearts Not searching for a peace in heaven No one will ever shed a tear With my hands raised to the sky We will not wait for someone to decide Our sober minds will face this barren truth Not longing for distant paradise This is the final levy from bleeding hands They will receive the final stroke from dying voices They will hear the curse we whisper While marching forward without intermission And tearing down the halls of the extorioner Not searching for a peace in heaven No one will ever shed a tear With my hands raised to the sky We will not wait for someone to decide Our sober minds will face this barren truth Not longing for distant paradise
You who live safe In your warm houses You who find returning in the evening Hot food and friendly faces Consider if this is a man Who works in the mud Who does not know peace Who fights for a scrap of bread Who dies because of a yes or a no Consider if this is a woman Without hair and without name With no more strength to remember Her eyes empty and her womb cold Like a frog in winter Meditate that this came about I commend these words to you Carve them in your hearts At home, in the street Going to bed, rising Repeat them to your children Or may your house fall apart May illness impede you May your children turn their faces from you You who live safe In your warm houses You who find returning in the evening...
I am the Lord, your God, kneel before me and pray Forbidden acts of evil forced upon people in different ways Suffering children preyed upon by the man in black Through the years you look the other way Here lies the victim of a vicious attack It´s the downfall of Christ You see him nailed to the cross It´s the downfall of Christ Betrayed by all of us If only you will forget I am the one you called Suppression of a different kind, as you die you call for your God Seeing me as I bleed before you, you´ll be the one to cry Looking down the roads towards a miracle My God, he cannot save my life It´s the downfall of Christ You see him nailed to the cross It´s the downfall of Christ Betrayed by all of us Sinners - benevolence is not in your soul (Our) healers - temptation has led you astray Judas - using religion for war Pestilents (persuasion) - it´s their holy holocaust Centuries of merauders fighting in the name of their gods People dying everyday, hell has opened it´s doors Manipulation for murder, crucified on the cross Revel in victims blood, revival of their religious wars It´s the downfall of Christ You see him nailed to the cross It´s the downfall of Christ Betrayed by all of us
I´ve had enough of your lies Now it´s the time to make it stop Spreading false propaganda how your race is clean How can you be so stupid?

Antifascist action now...
Unrelenting, their endeavour to rule lives Teaching you an artificial truth, That you will grieve no more, That you will die no more. Narrow minded mercenaries, Slave traders, soul collectors.

Blood trickles away in the sand All hope crushed, perished in the border fences of a secure stronghold We crossed this lost world, so much distress we have seen The home we left behind offered nothing but despair Under the veil of darkness we marched for endless years Beyond the silver bright horizon a brave new world exists [Refrain:] Trespassing the shores of your world, Piles of dead bodies at the walls of Fortress Europe Cast a shadow on your paradise Oblivion and apathy will keep you warm A continent beyond recovery Like dark invaders they receive us A gaping wound in the flesh of this earth; A bleeding they refused to staunch [Refrain]

Consistent, pushing aside all disbelief; Abandon my friends, my home Losing my mother tongue But I will bear this heavy loss Former brothers calling me betrayer And burned the words we wrote I will overcome Solaced by this certainty this delusion will fade [Refrain:] Our words of reason, lost in the roar of the cadence The beacon of humanity, beclouded by their cold, black sun In the scattered light of all your torches his rotten face Seems like a savior´s smile to you An army of lost sons still hidden in the dark A voice of an enslaved nation A force of banished daughters We have to stay the course! Consistent, without anguish! We may sow the seeds of upheaval just from the outside; But with burning hearts we shall recur [Refrain]
This is the call to arms, the final call Exchanged the shuttle for the sword For generations we slaved away in the shadows of their towers The world we know, a torture-chamber Born as servants, exploited till death To their machines we´re marching with Captain Ludd in mind [Refrain:] The final march begins, down with all the kings The shroud we weave completed The air we breathe is not the stench of slavery Down with the king! Down with all Kings!

Skywards, The prayers we sent, of no avail No fear of death will walk among us Almost too limb to throw the stones Marching into darkness, Bowed down with grief and marked by enslavement [Refrain:] All the prayers we sent, of no avail They went unheard Of no avail, the lives we gave Our weakened legs and tattered shoes Will cause no sound on icy streets Almost too weak to cry out the spell His servants won´t slow down our steps Blood red will be those streets and burning castles will leave [Refrain] Cursed be the god who was deaf to our prayers!!! Cursed be the god who was deaf to us!!! As we died in freedom their machines broke down for a day.
An insurrection of the lost With courage born from despair An end for the years of anguish; A battle in the nation´s heart [Refrain:] Uprising of the lost; In the abyss between the worlds They all averted their eyes A home behind the enemy´s lines They raped and burned our fatherland We know that nothing shall remain; there´s no tomorrow, We´ll bring it to an end [Refrain] Our souls scorched with our homes But fitful we hold our ground Ragged figures but brothers and sisters we are; Through fields of debris we crawl Uprising of the lost; the world averted its eyes Red vultures awaiting our end A home behind the enemies lines [Refrain]

Black tears, black tears. Black Black tears Black tears Black

Here we are, waiting for the storm. Here we are, waiting for the storm to come. We know this world will drown in blood. Last days of May, this spring is dying once again, But we sense this summer may not be ours anymore. Within these walls, we´re loyal brothers, Comrades till death. Now in the distance we see the fires rage. They will not take this place, will not defile this ground. We´re not afraid to die, no one will break this line, This darkened world will hear our cries. This darkened world will hear our cries. As clouds of dust contaminate the deep blue skies, We´re crawling through the debris of our homes. Here we are, waiting for the storm. Here we are, this world will drown in blood. Now in the distance we see the fires rage. They will not take this place, will not defile this ground. We´re not afraid to die, no one will break this line, This darkened world will hear our cries. Curtain fires, lying in the trenches, buried deep As cold ashes cover this swaying world in grey. Inside this fortress, we´re faithful sisters, Comrades till death. As their bombs eclipse this sallow sun And their guns annihilate our sanctuaries, Our confidence, it will not vanish, not abate, We will not cease resisting. Now in the distance we see the fires rage. They will not take this place, will not defile this ground. We´re not afraid to die, no one will break this line, This darkened world will hear our cries
This is the war you called And I´m the one who came to judge you. Too soon your gods will leave, This is the day of your defeat. Welcome the newborn slaves, Forgotten and betrayed. Just burn it down. Black skies will rise And overshadow your demise. Long for the peace of surrender. Just stare into the void. Welcome the newborn slaves, Disfranchised and betrayed. Just feed your new found hate, A force nothing will break. Just burn it, Just burn it down. It´s in the air you breathe, An everlasting poison, An order of deceit, It is a lie you bleed for. It´s in the words you speak, Faint echoes of deception. When will you ever see No one will set you free. Welcome the newborn slaves, Forgotten and betrayed. Long for the peace of surrender.

An unforgiving chill crawls down my blood stained limbs And a thousand frozen bodies line our way into the night Shadows of dead trees appear like ghosts in poisoned clouds Heart-wrenching cries agonize my soul Hand to hand we fight And man by man we die No sanity is here to find, our god has left this hell We´re wandering like shadows Through frozen worlds Once my mind was occupied, Filled with heroic stories, all glorious tales about this war But now I know there is no honor here to find We´re marching endlessly, relentlessly, towards the end A purgatory we walk through, a common grave for all of us No matter friend or enemy, a forest of the dead Heart-wrenching cries agonize my soul Hand to hand we fight And man by man we die No sanity is here to find, our god has left this hell We´re wandering like shadows Through frozen worlds I should not care about my enemies, tell me what have I become My blackened heart´s still beating All of a sudden I´m aware Compassion is no weakness, compassion is no treason
So much terror I have seen Fought endless years for their revenge Now I know this struggle ended nowhere I am remembering with shame I feel my time has come to fight for understanding I´m not defeated, I am not beaten Throw into the darkest dungeon, I pay for my forgiving thoughts They may preach about the same convictions But they will distort these high ideals No ferocity will unsettle my beliefs I am not taken by the enemy Mechanisms of stagnation As agitators rule the land They want to make us live in fear Yet all they get are unshed tears They want to make us live in fear Locked up in gloom for years Try to silence my voice, but I am not beaten! No brutality will unsettle my beliefs I am not taken by their felony Mechanisms of stagnation As agitators rule the land And a thousand miles away from home, I meet my expelled brothers Captured in a secret prison, isolation, regression, indignity for years No atrocity will unsettle my beliefs I am not taken by this agony Mechanisms of stagnation As agitators rule the land
I did not choose to tread this path A forced journey into an unknown future As our doom eclipsed this clueless state I had to leave my world behind Their hate was so outright, it filled my heart with fright I know only too well My people chose to welcome tyranny The slaves of terror, murder, pain Humanity lays dying once again Their hate was so outright, it filled my heart with fright I know only too well, I am an undead poet Buried in no ground I know only too well Now here I am, disabled but alive Where no one calls my name Where nothing meets my soul Now here I am But cannot build my home As no one reads my bitter words I´m yearning for the day of my return Yet nothing´s there to make my dreams come true I know only too well, I am a ghost wandering this world I´m like a ghost, I know only too well Now here I am, disabled but alive Where no one calls my name Where nothing meets my soul Now here I am But cannot build my home I see distant flames This outland holds no hope As no one reads my truly bitter words
Heaven kicked you out You wouldn´t wear a tie Staring at some pictures by yourself At something that you want to have but will never get Going nowhere Going nowhere Going nowhere Going nowhere You get drunk every night You can´t get drunk on life Shouting at the world you´ll never change But it´s what´s inside you´ve got to rearrange Going nowhere Going nowhere Going nowhere Going nowhere Heaven kicked you out Heaven kicked you out Breaking up for what you never have Loosing everything all things you ever had Going nowhere Going nowhere Going nowhere Going nowhere Going nowhere Going nowhere Going nowhere Going nowhere
Nothing but pain, nothing but anguish Depriving me of mercy, refusing all compassion These bare walls around me My prison, my dungeon Deliver me to ransom, No god can justify this cruelty There´s nothing left for me There´s nothing left but agony At last break down this dogma Just let me go, just let me be Just let it be my last breath As all peace has left this world There is serenity given in death Silence is falling down So long ago I lost my anchor As all my sorrows drown The turmoil of this world is not my struggle anymore The end is putting down its hand for me, I see, I feel As all my sorrows drown Just let me go, just let me be Just let it be my last breath Days fade away, songs die away My peace of mind, given in death As all peace has left this world So long ago I lost my anchor I´m longing for redemption The turmoil of this world is not my struggle anymore The end is putting down its hand for me, I see, I feel These bare walls around me My prison, my dungeon There´s nothing left for me There´s nothing left but agony The turmoil of this world is not my struggle anymore Enclosed by the mists of oblivion, Songs die away The turmoil of this world is not my struggle anymore The end is putting down its hand for me, I see, I feel

Until the day I die, I will not end this fight. Believe me, that I am this haunted man forever, Their hopefull eyes, their desperate cries, This certitude to shatter dying dreams forever Du kannst auf bessere Tage warten, doch diese Zeit ist deine Zeit Deine Worte, deine Taten werden bald schon nichts mehr zÃ¤hlen Die StÃ¼rme rufen dich, hier und jetzt muss es geschehen, Du hÃ¶rst die Glocken schlagen und keine Angst wird uns regieren An unseen genocide, a world war on the enslaved ones Shieldless, Facing depotism, This is the awakening - Es ist die Zeit des Erwachens Right here, right now within the walls of babylon Die StÃ¼rme rufen dich I stand and fight, deny your lies forever Die StÃ¼rme rufen dich Forced by northern kingdoms, looted and held down Despoiled and patronized just like conquered colonies Old men return to reason, as power is taken by their rival sons
Fallen, long fallen are the righteous ones, long gone their high ideals Corrupted are their leaders, feeding the machine, dreaming of yesterday Never will I be someone, frightened by your threats, beaten by your clubs Words are my weapon, conviction is my shield, A new sun rises but bludgeoned are the upright ones No remorse, still in power are the criminals, enforcing vicious claims Wounded and hunted are the deviants, convicted and condemned Never will I be someone, unsettled by my fears, corroded by this greed Words are my weapon, conviction is my shield, A new sun rises but bludgeoned are the upright ones Never will I be someone, poisoned by your lies, betraying this demise But your dominion turned my love to horror, Converted my compassion into my darkest hate We were about to stall this merciless machine, Leading a strong-willed youth out of the shadow of your past Raised in the bombing rain, scarred by an unforgiving war Executed those who sparked the masses, Unrepentant, state-aided violence takes its course Forever will I be the one, draining your blackest tears, Holding your darkest fears Real are my weapons, terror is my yield A dark sun rises and bludgeoned are the upright ones, Forever bludgeoned are the upright ones

Godless old men, confess your sins, Why don´t you practice what you preach An isolated super state, Lead and controlled by rotten tyrants Detached from this world and disconnected from reality Maintaining power is the highest destination Suppressing real enlightment and ruling by oppression Misanthropic doctrines, committed only to their profit Follow them and godless you will be Preaching love but feeding hatred Forgiving sins, concealing crimes Just follow them and godless you shall be Infallible, an ultimate authority, Without any explanation Manipulation, profiteering Money greedy hypocrites, power-hungry dotards Downtrodden believers, trapped within archaic structures Why don´t you practice, what you preach Follow them and godless you will be Feeding the sawyer, taunting the starving Worship creation, while agonizing creatures Black hearts beating under snow white cassocks Their golden beringed hands, pray to a distressed icon Ancient traditions of justifying dark suppressors
High in the sky where eagles fly Morgray the dark enters the throne Open wide the gate friend the king will come Blow the horn and praise the highest lord Who´ll bring the dawn he´s a new god in the palace of steel Persuade the fate of everyone The chaos can begin let it in So many centuries, so many gods We were the prisoners of our own fantasy But now we are marching against these gods I´m the wizard, I´ll change it all Valhalla, Deliverance Why´ve you ever forgotten me? Valhalla, Deliverance Why´ve you ever forgotten me? Valhalla, Deliverance Why´ve you ever forgotten me?

We don´t comply to normal standards, Non conform and freedom-loving outcast We´ve turned away! We won´t betray! A haven for the seakers, a shelter for the renegades, No where else there´s tolerance to find Protecting the freedom of our thoughts, beyond compulsions And against their uniform constraints, we had nowhere to go, But here we can at last express our senses This is the voice of those who turned away And never to be victimized again Now you can follow the calling of your heart A place to be, claiming your needs This is the fight of real believer, A true defender of essential liberties, Against their cultural defaults And versus clerical blockheadness Harassed and controlled, Spied out and monitored without a gap, Betrayers commanded unquestioning obidience, But a stubborn mind bore up against the tide We´ve turned away! We won´t betray! A haven for the seakers, a shelter for the renegades, No where else there´s tolerance to find This is the voice of those who won´t betray And never to be victimized again Why don´t you follow the calling of your heart He fought for you, so claim your needs
There is no peace to find and Empty words of regret fade away, As greed of gain has drowned all temperance, There´s nothing left to stem the rising blackness This is the agony of human sympathy Merchants of misery assumed control Leading a biased trail, the ruin of democracy They sell the seeds of perdition To the highest price Like gods among mortals they walk The way of damnation Deathmongers, elected and legitimised, Sitting in secret councils Corrupted henchmen, no beholder Fraternity is wiped from the face of this earth They sell the seeds of perdition To the highest price Like gods among mortals they walk The way of damnation
So many sons and daughters, poised to attack, Born in distant fatherlands Marching under the heavens of spain And without fear go to the barricades Brothers and sisters in arms This is the reckoning Now only hatred fills our hearts Raising the colours of freedom In ruthless fights, I saw my best friends die Now buried far away, so far away from home, Lionhearted soldiers, no one shall forget their names Understanding what the world still had to learn No mercy to the villains, Defending the republic infected by a fascist pestilence This righteous fight reveals your shame, Delivered to oblivion, those who fought a horrid beast Homecoming held no glory and silence covers our tombs, Scorned and despised, left and denied, but still do I defy, I still resist and fight your apathy, And still I fight.
Unprotected, defenceless, drifting through the void, Forever at the mercy of all starving wolves

I threw my useless life Into their wars and riots For the ideal To serve the ones I love Yes, all too soon No recognition for My pointless sacrifice And far too late I saw I left my home defenceless This world´s a slaughterhouse And men like me are not the butchers I brought justice to no one But there was no doubt It always stands to reason Protect the just Conquer the felons Returned Wounded and broken But I never left these barren fields And now I understand There is no war to end all wars Take it from me Drowning your honest love In mindless violence I bring the war home Still raging within me All too soon These children lost their fathers And far too late I saw That not for them I fought The gods of profit Led me into Their battles I never brought security To those I wanted to protect Feeding the machine And staining this world With blood instead And only now I understand There is no war to end all wars Take it from me Drowning your honest love In mindless violence I bring the war home Still raging within me [2x] Take it from me You´ll carry the war home I brought justice To no one Now they spit me in the face I did not recognize The real offenders And now I understand There is no war to end all wars Take it from me Drowning your honest love In mindless violence I bring the war home Still raging within me We brought affliction to the masses And splendour to a few We are aggressors Not defenders [2x]
I was born into this terror, unsuspecting as I was Just a lifeward child, not aware of all the misery No idea of the blame this world already hat so shoulder As an untold crime came down and sealed my face No premonition of the doom impending Now knowing of my strife for life to come Soon gone were the years of my levity Eleven summers before darkness fell Keep this paper crane, one of a thousand There never was a guilt to burden myself My hopeless cry, it went unheard And unlink me, you knew there were no gods to save me Still no idea of the blame this world would have to shoulder As for one last time I bid the cranes farewell Passing by like the timid ghosts Summoners of a placid world Never reaching me Masters of a peaceful life Moving to stainless shores Never teaching me Now I lay my aching hands to rest As I bid my crane farewell And I wish for an echo of my forlorn life to be your melody See this paper crane, one of a thousand There never was a guilt to burden myself My hopeless cry, it went unheard And unlink me you knew, there were no gods to save me All hope in vain, you just murdered them Banished the crane from the meadows of this life
No light of dawn will shine upon their false red flags There is no compromise, today retreat is not an option Grim faced and awake we watch their crimeful gathering As their hallow slogans echo through the East End streets Right here, right now, we will put them in their place See the Blackshirts are marching But this time they will not brave the storm Shoulder to shoulder we stand This is a somber season but my heart is filled with confidence Believe me today, they shall not pass this way Not yet corrupted Not yet forced into their lines Adamant and resolute Under streaming banners they defile Lulled into false sense of security Nevermore the sound of marching boots Will hall through Cable Street Those who play with fire shall burn themselves today See the Blackshirts are marching But this time they will not brave the storm Shoulder to shoulder we stand This is a somber season but my heart is filled with confidence Believe me today, they shall not pass this way From different sides of a society But now together upon the barricade Side by side we fight the fear and terror Hand in hand we strike â€“ united by the enemy Strike down their colours They shall not pass They will pass Never again
Stricken, but I will never fall There is nothing in this world I fear Forsaken, but I will never call The ones that want so see me down, forever crawling To their feet, forever begging for their noble deeds I shall never kiss this crown and there is nothing I regret I always knew this day would come Faint premonitions blend into knowledge This is the time of new departures So many fists, so many shining eyes So many voices shouting out the will to power I seek salvation in the distance, leaving the turmoil of this world And all my dreams falling silent I left the lost, so very long ago As masses converging around their towers An apodictic certainty arose in me That I shall wear this sign forever That I shall never kiss this crown, nothing I regret I know the apostates, I carry the truth in me As new liars invade my riven fatherland I seek salvation in the distance, leaving the turmoil of this world And all my dreams falling silent I left the lost, so very long ago I see vassals face away from frantic leaders Lies of omissions ensnare the changeling I see heroes decay, I hear pontiffs betray Betray their canon sermonized over ages I seek salvation in the distance, leaving the turmoil of this world And all my dreams falling silent I left the lost, so very long ago
There is a void within the soul of every man A secret blind spot, so numb and callous, careless and cold So far beyond all empathy Worthless appendix of incarnation Yet the gateway to poison questing minds Casting upon you, the spell of segregation Tear all love from you, in total desolation Total incapacitation Self-knowledge denied and all your dignity defiled No matter the names they bear No matter the saints they fear Lying prophets, fallen hollows, untruth revelators Your fear of hell will drag you into a godless abyss There is no way to cure the human race Forever abandoned to disgrace Waiting for you to surrender at last Suffocating in religious haze Implanted image of a prudent god, so wise and gracious So far above the plagues you fear Self-knowledge denied and all your dignity defiled No matter the names they bear No matter the saints they fear Lying prophets, fallen hollows, untruth revelators Your fear of hell will drag you into a godless abyss Fear of hell, prey to god, self-chosen hell, prey to god Self-knowledge denied and all your dignity defiled Momentary gods abhorred But ancient demons adored

This is the reckoning End staring into voided skies Bury your fallen angels No one to save me All lines to follow perished No one to lead me Save me I see them march again, hailing the darkest kings And even if I leave it all This downfall resonates across the acorns Deceptive calm surrounding the unaware Resting in the eye of the storm Cross my hearts and hope to die I will not wait for them to save me form the falling night You feel these days are closing in Yet unmistrusting, still not reflecting Am I the only one to see And do I really roam alone Along the shores of our empty seas Screaming my lungs out, against the forceful winds Now this will break your heart, full of deceitful hopes Devoid the passion, opposition unlearnt Cross my heart and hope to die I will not wait for them to save me from the falling night Stench of indifference, carried by the rising winds Blowing on the fires eating up this world Am I the only one to see And do I really roam alone Along the shores of our empty seas Screaming my lungs out, against the forceful winds Now this will break your heart, full of deceitful hopes Devoid the passion, opposition unlearnt Hear them chant again, hailing the darkest kings These walls are closing in, idle minds fight no repression I was the only one to see Now I wander all alone Along the stormy shores if my beloved seas Sail into silence, using the forceful winds Mourning the broken hearts, full if deceitful hopes All their broken hearts, full of deceitful hopes
Supervision end to end and unprovided For events beyond control Once committed to progress Now impelling the downturn, unable to confess Megalomania, fueled by long gone visionaries Reign of misguided futurist No reason to see, the cataclysmic silence they still teach In the name of progression, admitting of no option Technology evangelists misled An evocation of relentless distress Now fallen from the highest of your victory Still undiscerning, on and on into misery Swallow their timeworn doctrines Absorbing the lies like released iodine Without protest There is no yearning for deliverance form malediction No reason to see, the cataclysmic silence they still teach In the name of progression, evocation of a certain nemesis Standstill in the name of progression, we lost control Now fallen from the highest of your victory Still undiscerning On and on into misery In the name of progression, in silence they still teach They bought this fatal regression On and in into misery
Trotha! His name was Trotha, never forgive, neveforget! This irate oath we carry in our darkened hearts forever A march into damnation Peregrination towards the open gates of hell Our fathersâ€™ blood ran down the Waterberg, our mothersâ€™ cries They died away in endless deserts Under a radiant sun an azure skies We died a wretched death under their bright eyes These few survivors scarred for life Dammed generations to follow Tell me will you ever pay the price Breaking the silence at last No more hiding the truth Fallen from your doubtful grace An invocation of the beginning of your end Our fathersâ€™ blood ran down the Waterberg Our mothersâ€™ cries, the dies away Imploring remorseless oppressors These few survivors scarred for life Dammed generations to follow Tell me will you ever pay the price Breaking the silence at last The shadows of this genocide Eclipse my haunted soul forever Your empty words to regret, deriding the dead
I close my eyes and hear it rushing From the cradle to the grave This pulsating ever flowing stream Running through my veins An ocean within me Tides of the deepest red I know Drowning the filth of the outside world Ever vibrant, never resting protecting me Healing me, a treasure beyond gold Ever heartbeat a movement order For an army marching through Every single heartbeat, an army marching through Never resting Mystified and sacrosanct A mesmerizing force from times immemorial A fragile balance, in need of perfect harmony All too often tainted and defiled An ocean within me Tides if the deepest red I know Drowning the filth of the outside world Ever vibrant, never resting protecting me Healing me Never resting Every silent breath I take fuels this vivid stream of ever shinning red Raging currents, silent waters, an uncorrupted mirror Reflecting my state of mind My river of crimson Never be my enemy Never run into my ocean of sorrow Be my companion, I shall never leave An ocean within me Tides if the deepest red I know Drowning the filth of the outside world Ever vibrant, never resting protecting me Never resting, ever vibrant, my silent remedy
You can´t expect to see him and survive You´ll swallow his tongue of thorns His mouth, dripping with flies In his glorious kingdom of fire But I believe he wept I will make them all lie down Down where hope lies dying With lust, you´re kicking mankind to death We live and die without hope You tramp us down in a river of death As I stand here now, my heart is black I don´t want to die a lonely man This is a weary hour This is a weary hour
