Track Name: System
war, crime, famines, pestilence
are the deadly consequence
of mans constant falling short.
condemnation!

fornication and debauchery,
so common in society
ever decaying morally.
desperation!

this is the downfall we've been watching.
the last days are here.
this is the downfall we've been watching.
the end is near.

but I'll be there forever!
this system's goin' down!

greedy, truthless, selfabsorbed,
way too many attention whores.
they'll be struck with fullest force.
condemnation!

agitation in the sea.
humans looking for the immortality,
wandering around aimlessly.
desperation!

I can't seem to find
a place to hide.
the system goes down!
I can't believe, I can't believe
I've been following these ideals

this is the downfall we've been watching.
the last days are here.
this is the downfall we've been watching.
the end is near.

I can't close my eyes forever!
this system's goin' down!
Track Name: Stronghold
you constructed me, brick by brick, stone by stone.
you helped build up my foundation, raised it high.

now I've come to realise
what your action really implies.

I'm the stronghold, dispenser of power,
take your lifeblood from me.
I'm your host, the tree of life,
feed on me like the ivy.

I defended you, warded off all these blows.
now, what would you do if I were gone, let you go?

now I've come to realise
my absence would be your demise.

I'm the stronghold, dispenser of power,
take your lifeblood from me.
I'm your host, the tree of life,
feed on me like the ivy.

so, without me,
where would you flee to?
where would you be
if I just were free?

I'm the stronghold, dispenser of power,
take your lifeblood from me.
I'm your host, the tree of life,
feed on me like the ivy.

what, what would you do?
where would you flee to?
if I were, if I were gone...
what would you do?
Track Name: Crushed
I think back on all the times
I betrayed you and deceived myself
into thinking I was alright.
simply didn’t want to realize
that I was the one heading in the wrong direction.

throw me – overboard into the sea and
purge me – of my sinful flaws!
swallow – me alive and make me walk the
right path – help me find my cause!

I wish that I simply
forget and start anew,
format my memory and
erase what I have done.

what are my efforts good for?
if I fall again why should I try to rise?
what is this life good for anyway?
all we do is stumble way to many times!

I walked this road ten years ago,
I crossed this bridge back then.
I can see how time flies by as I finally pass again
to go back where I belong (I belong)
and leave the ruins that I caused,
the devastation in my soul.
I wish that I could undo it all.
yet it's simply beyond reach.
thus you must

crush me - with the punishment that I
deserve due - to my sinfull flaws!
throw me – overboard into the sea and
purge me – help me find my cause!
Track Name: Heavy Rain
I feel like being drowned
in this maelstrom around me,
fueled from within.
will these worries bring me down?
cause I'm losing my will
to fight and give up!

I give up!

heavy burden of anxiety
tears on my shoulders,
breaks my neck and back.
please lift this weight off of my chest.
I just want to breathe.
help me bear the load.

can't see the silver lining.
I cling to the hope of salvation
that I am embracing.
I know the day is soon to come!

heavy rain falling from the clouds.
every drop fills me up with doubts.
leaden weight wears me out.
aching bones, toiling, loaded down.

(help me to find...)
...the safe shelter that I'm running for.
I don't know where to go anymore.
my very own resting place
where I can hide from the world's face.
Track Name: The Beyond I
seems we’re all living an illusion, like a mist,
not tangible, quickly passing as we see the light
and suddenly the moment’s gone,
even as soon as we experience it

it’s already over.
what we call the present is the past.
seems we’re all living in a memory.
but what is that anyway?
connections of synapses in your brain,
highly complex and cleverly designed.

and is there something more?
a place where recollections are stored.
like matter in a fifth dimension,
it equips us with our power of reason.

is there a way
to efface these wicked thoughts?
they’re stuck inside my mind.
I wish you could extract
this substance that’s debilitating me,
so please
tear it away!

there must be something more,
a place where these ideas are born!
so tear away these evil notions,
that I'm left with a pure mind and emotions!

is there a way
to efface these wicked thoughts?
they’re stuck inside my mind.
I wish you could extract
this substance that’s debilitating me,
so please tear it away!
Track Name: The Beyond II
you may call me crazy when I utter these ideas.
"preposterous hypothesis that", you say, "will lead nowhere".

choose the easy way out of your burdensome dilemma,
denying that the doubts are there, to say them out loud you won’t dare.

or are your doubts already gone?
simply swallowing what you’re fed?

what is there beyond the things we can perceive?
behold realities that simply can’t be seen!

you shan't simply accept their baseless claims as fact!

guided by the blind,
who have no right to govern lives.
blinded by their pride,
they see only what backs up their lies.

what is there beyond the things we can perceive?
behold realities that simply can’t be seen.
can you now imagine the possibility
that there's a higher being watching you and me?

set free your mind from the forcefed propaganda
