Track Name: Blossom
I'm burying my hands
Under white stones in Rome
I watch the roofs burning
While my heart explodes
The Kings and the Peacocks
The Slaughter, the Fall
The Night of the Locust
Brings flames to the Throne!

We're all marching in line
We keep on marching, marching in line.

I'm burying my eyes
In the fields of Rome
For the glory of Nero,
For the glory of nothing
I'll be part of the Murder,
I'll be part of the Dance
For the slaves all around me
Keep on marching in line!

We're all marching in line
We keep on marching, marching in line.
Track Name: Dance of the Mice
I'm looking for a place

Not an usual place

I’ve got the hopes of a snake

I wish I could bite your head off

I wish I could bite you soon

I wish I could bite your sins



Only clouds and flies in spiders’ mind

Why won’t you leave us behind?

We’re all born to lie

You were born to lie

Now it’s my time to rise



I could be blind

Yes, my quarry, you made me blind

In disguise (camouflage!)

Try to look at my shape

But my teeth are deep inside your tail



What are the secrets of an evil mind?

I see yours, I see my belongings

Come here me calling you and begging for your lies

We all lie, we all lie

We all lie, we all lie

We’re all lies.

Track Name: The Fall
Come on and tell me,
Are we always so blind?
Is all this talking
A matter of pride?
Come on and show me
What's in the back of your mind
Come on, explain me
The truth as it shines

Purified in new blood
With an old taste of hate
Drowning yourself
In a twisted debate
Come on and tell me,
Are we always so blind?
Come on, explain me
The truth as it shines

It's evil and it's calling me
It's dirty, it beats inside of me

Lights go out,
Ambitions turn into war
So we walked the dead-line
With nothing to fight for
Come on and tell me,
Are we always so blind?
Come on, explain me
The truth as it shines

It's evil and it's calling me
It's dirty and grows inside of me

It's evil and it's calling me
It's dirty and grows inside of me
It's wrong and burns inside of me
It's wrong and grows inside of me

It's wrong and lives inside of us
Track Name: Army of Illusion (Pt. I)
Lay your hands on me
And look for the answer
I always hide
Lay your hands on me
You'll find there's no answer
Your hope is a lie

There's someone at your door
Knocking harder and harder
There's someone at your door
Your hope is a trap, now!

Lying and denying

Lying and denying
(Surrounded by the Army of Illusion)

There's no privilege in blood
'Til it runs out
There's no privilege in pain
'Til it's tamed
Track Name: King of Worms
Grab the torch
Of stranger's faith
All the enemies
Run through your veins
You can't see them
Flowers of betrayal
You feel like a master
But you're worms' new slave

You're worms' new slave

We all need
A cheek to pierce
With a sword
Or the deepest kiss
Crucify your tongue
With three rusty nails
You feel like a master
But you're worms' new slave

You're worms' new slave

Father's fingers
Are seeking your pride
He's sucking your blood
Tasting the eyes of the blind

Hail to the weak!
The King is dead!
Time needs silence
As the throne needs his heir!
Track Name: Chrysalis
A stab for the Lover
A stab for the Glory
A stab for the Power,
I'm coming through

One for the Love we shared
Two for our Hate
Three for the Knowledge,
I'm coming through

Inside your mind
The world collapses for you
Inside your mind
This world keeps on turning for you

Inside your mind
Inside your mind
Inside your mind
I'm changing my skin
Inside your mind
Inside your mind
Track Name: The Tongue
The voice says: "Don't follow the lights,
Let the night time cover your eyes!
Take my hand and we'll burn together,
I'm the herald of a stormy weather!"

The voice says: "You'll be sacrificed
For we're all just sides of a dice!
Take my hand and we'll burn together
'cause I'm the herald of a stormy weather!"

Shadows gather in the mind!

Bury the hopes, the wish and the pain
Bury the hopes, the wish and the pain

The voice says "Don't follow the lights,
Let the night time cover your eyes!
Take my hand and we'll burn together,
I'm the herald of a stormy weather!"

Shadows gather in the mind!

Bury the hopes, the wish and the pain
Bury the hopes, the wish and the pain

The tongue licks the mark on my arm
Waiting for salvation to come
Waiting for salvation to come

Shadows gather in the mind!

Bury the hopes, the wish and the pain
Bury the hopes, the wish and the pain
The wish and the pain!
Track Name: Claws on the Corn
Have you ever dreamt of the Black Lodge?

It lives in a place called mind

Locusts are eating me up tonight

Never ever need a brain if I use my knife


My knife...

Can you hear the blackbird?

Can you hear the blackbird singing?

It’s flying above the trees of Dystopia

No-one knows it's whirling, no-one knows it's bleeding



Pigs march along the river

Through a hundred-thousand fields of corpses

Sinking their snouts in the bloody corn

I don’t burn my memories, I eat ‘em alive


Alive...

Can you hear the blackbird?

Can you hear the blackbird singing?

It’s flying above the trees of Dystopia

No-one knows it's whirling, no-one knows it's bleeding



It's a dream
It's a dream
We live inside a dream!

Evil stands behind our pure dreams

Behind a red curtain of sorrow

Take another look at the pit

Falling like statues the soldiers cry

They cry

They cry!
Track Name: A Prayer
For these precious things
Well, I'll start to scream
"Come today!"
If the End is near
Well, I'll start to scream
"Come today!"

"Come today!"

For these precious things
For these precious things
Well, I'll start to scream
"Come today!"
If the End is near
If the End is near
Well, I'll start to scream
"Come today!"

"Come today!"

Awe lives in the light,
There's no place to hide

There's no place to hide
Track Name: Out of the Well (For David Michael Bunting)
Maybe it's because of the sky,
Never thought it would devour me.
Or maybe it's because of the blood,
Never thought it was so red.
The Earth as a mosaic,
Colours like pins in her chest.
Let Oedipus blind us.
Don't need to see, don't need to see
Don't need to see anymore!
When the ax falls down
Let the sun eat our bodies of glass
That spin... and crash!

Finally men are crawling outside
Like rats out of their nests
And if you could see me lying on the grass
Would you understand how it feels
To be murdered by hours?
Would you find all the lies that you left behind?
Would you run into the furnace?
Don't need to see, don't need to see
Don't need to see anymore!
When the light covers everything
Let the sun eat our bodies of glass
That spin... and crash!
