Track Name: Runes
Carved into my skin
I can’t read these runes
Stigmatized, Injured
A secret banned into my flesh

The silhouette of a sere tree
Emerging shadows from his branches
Growing souls soaked in blood
Piles of bodies strengthen his roots

A glimpse in the dark
The ancient spirit is coming down
It dives into the scars
I am empowered
Reality fades into dream
A frozen raven
Shows me the way
To the roots of my inner mountains

The silhouette of a sere tree
Emerging shadows from his branches
Growing souls soaked in blood
Piles of bodies strengthen his roots

So it begins

I am the iron a blacksmith forms with hands
I am the plow a farmer uses to create life
I am the crown a king gets his power from
I am the sword that devastates life

I am the raven watching over wisdom
I am the wolf bringing loneliness and grief
I am the snake seeding hate and fear
I am the bear sharing both power and pain


My eyes becloud
My thoughts are getting slower
A spark of what awaits me flashes
Before my consciousness is devoured


Awaking
Pain is tearing me apart
Flames bursting out of my skin
Release me


I am now complete
My path is shining in front of me
The meaning of these runes
Exposed to me

But insecurity is coming up
Is this my fate or just an option
And with insecurity comes agony
I am not wiser but weaker than before
Track Name: Three Beggars
The blind beggar says
Son I’ve seen things you wouldn’t believe
Occasions, Pictures all a man can desire
But I’ll never share it. It’s my own!
You can follow me or die unknowing

But I doubt

The lame beggar says
Son I’ve walked to places you wouldn’t believe
Countries, halls containing everything you desire
You can follow me or die dispossessed

But I doubt

I hear them but I
Don’t believe them
I let them fade away
Without their lives

The deaf beggar says
Son I’ve heard things you wouldn’t believe
Conversations, beautiful voices explaining the mysteries of earth
You can’t follow me ‘because you denied
And didn’t trust

So he walks away
Leaves me behind
With questions
And desire but
I’m lost I’m lost
This chance
My only chance of peace
What I denied will end my life
Track Name: NIHIL
Existence of mankind is over
But not yet realized
As the paradise burns
Laughter lances through the silence

Martyrs sacrificed in vain
The warmth of the sun doesn't reach the ground
Nothing to believe in
Nothing to hold on

Dawn of gods, collapse of worlds
Apocalyptic prophecies fulfilling
The wisdom of the ancient is lost
And childlike curiosity derided

One day we will be the ones
Carving bleeding memories on stones
One day we will be the ones
Devouring our legacy to keep us alive
One day we will be the ones
Forgetting to save our drowning child
One day we will be the ones

Blasphemy of died days withers
as mockery’s victims expire
we are the nephilim taking our own sons

One day we will be the ones
Carving bleeding memories on stones
One day we will be the ones
Devouring our legacy to keep us alive
One day we will be the ones
Forgetting to save our drowning child
One day we will be the ones

Nihil est
Nihil erit
We never acquitted from our guilt

Nihil est
Nihil erit
The void will swallow us
Track Name: Trübnis
Wolkenverhangen trübt sich der Tag
Schwarze Tropfen fallen herab
Der Tod so nah das Leben so fern
Das Schicksal des Verlangens
Die Klinge bohrt sich durch das Fleisch
Sorgen ziehen vorbei

Pure Lust treibt sie weiter
Der Körper schreit voller Zorn
Das Seelenheil wird zerstückelt
Die Welt verhallt in Schmerzensgesang

Tausend Schatten schwärmen
Engelsgleich durch die Nacht
Klagend schreiend
Erlösung birgt nur der Tod
Flügelfedern von Pech durchzogen
Öffnen sich und es wird Nacht

Der Leib qualvoll gepeinigt
Dickes Blut peitscht aus der Haut
Gedankenscherben bilden die Rüstung
Diesen Schritt zu durchstehen es braucht

Ein Funkeln ein Blitzen
Die Zeit bleibt stehen
Endlich wird es klar
Alles ergibt sich in Wohlgefallen
Als das Ende naht

Wolkenverhangen trübt sich der Tag
Schwarze Tropfen fallen herab
Dem Tod so nah dem Leben so fern
Das Schicksal des Leidens
Die Klinge fährt aus dem Fleisch
Das Leben zieht vorbei

Willkommen Tod
Erlöser Verführer
Nimm mich auf leite mich
Willkommen Tod
Erlöser Verführer
Nimm mich zerstäube mich in die Zeit
Track Name: The Enemy (Demo)
You brought my enemy to life

A shadow behind my bare back
Ripping up scars hardly healed
Chains are pressing on my mind
Forged for slavery
Yesterday I was a free man
Yesterday trees stood ablaze
Yesterday you said these words
And chaos rose from the sea

You brought my enemy to life

An endless trail of broken souls leading me through night and mist
Candles carrying abyssal flames melting out their eyes

He is too strong
Our lifes are lost

We fought with many soldiers
buried him in our steel
but I am not sure now
whether it was real
Convinced of the evil itself
I held my sword
But with these words you told me
I raised the force …in me

You made my enemy a lie
