Lyrics
1. FOLLOW THE REAPER

Loosing the war I’m feining to win
Though I never tried to strive deep
From within. Life could be beautiful
For anybody it's for, but I’d swear this
Mothafuckin' shit is rotten to the core.

The portal has been past and it's
Time to make a turn, to follow the reaper
Until the point of no return.

When your blindly death-raying blade
Sweeps the griefs and fears away.
I cross my heart and hope to die thy freedom
Will be mine.

Sinking down in the ocean of severe emotions.
Grab a bottle to drink up the pain-reliefing potion.
But after all, that got boring too, so no matter
What happens, I couldn't give a damn or too.

The portal has been past 'til the
Point of no return. No more lines to cross,
No bridges to burn.

Now when your blindly death-raying blade
Swept my griefs and tears away. I’d never go back
To cross that line.
I cross my heart and hope to die.


2. BODOM AFTER MIDNIGHT

(Hang on) got to go
Preview what they oughtta know
Keep your head down and fucking die
(Wake up) rise and shine
Gotta take another pint
Dig heads and watch out for the night
When the sun comes down and the moon comes up in the sky
The battle of the day and the night
(Kill, kill, kill) go fuck another one
Candlelight burns in a wood so high
On a carpet (flying high) take it down to the other side
The way beyond it may lie
When the moon comes up and is rescuing under the night
The reaper is on the other side, let's go
Bodom after midnight
Bodom after midnight yeah


3. CHILDREN OF DECADENCE

Running under cover of the moonlight
Shadow death row. At the night we're
Running wild with no hope for tomorrow...
No tomorrow!!!
As we're walking through the fire,
That burns within us all. If ya wanna take
A glance to the blaze of pain, you'll never
Be the same.
You wanna get closer and get a taste
Of death? I know ya wanna fuck me down
Til' I’m bleeding red. I couldn't care less,
I’ll end up rotting in mud, so c'mon mothafucka
And gimme yer best shot.
You really thought you'd see through what
I am and what I need, we are children of
Rebellion, we'll fight, we'll bleed.
Don't try to come to preach over us and
Over me, we're children of decadence, we're
Right, we're real, we will fight, we'll bleed,
We're mothafucking dying breed, we're dying...
All wrecked and fucked I wonder if this is the way
I’m supposed to go. But that is all I ever got, that
Is all I’ll ever get, so I just let it go..


4. EVERYTIME I DIE

The faint blaze of the candle of my life,
Slowly dying like a fire in a pouring rain.
No sparks of hope inside,
No shooting stars on my sky.
On broken wings, no flying hight...
Another night, another demise,
Cadaverous wind blowing cold as ice...
I’ll let the wind blow out the light
Cuz its gets more painful every time I die.
Out of strenght to fight.
I cannot take another night.
I cannot take it no more.
Lust of light slips through my fingers
Like blood on my arms.
Black candle wax has buried me...
Another night, another demise,
Cadaverous wind blowing cold as ice...
I’ll let the wind blow out the light
Cuz its gets more painful every time I die.


5. MASK OF SANITY

I can't waste away, I’m slowly losing my way forever
Better raise your slave for me anymore
Daylight's sin inside, day's growing closer, wait for pain
I cannot wait another night to be alone
Voices are calling me, 'be my night!' this devil's sigh
Yeah, shadows are tainting me, yeah,
I know that only you can render pain
Peace of mind, you run away from me
So make me lose my mask of sanity
I can't waste away, I’m slowly getting my way forever
Better is what I used to feel alone
Shattered light's sin in taint, day's growing longer, wait for pain
I cannot wait another night to be with you
Peace of mind, you run away from me
So make me lose my mask of sanity
Peace of mind, you run away from me
So make me lose my mask of sanity


6. TASTE OF MY SCYTHE

Rip and cut and mutilate the innocent,
His friends, and again and again and on and on.
You make me own my life in hell; my kingdom back to the bound
You say you don't make it alone; kingdom back to the lord
Falling, I say; you too, falling; you too, born to die
Come with hate
Come and die
One day I’ll face you all alone,
Enduring out with wind and ice
It's payback time; it's your demise sought to feel:
They'll taste of my scythe
You say my ear, my god who help me, god take yours in shame
Back too low, I want your head on a plate to feel my eyes
Come with me, I want your blood to save it on my eyes
I want you and in the plate to be coming in the sky (sky!)
Come with hate
Come and try
One day I’ll face you all alone,
Enduring out with wind and ice
It's payback time; it's your demise until they feel:
Taste of my scythe


7. HATE ME!

I was born in ashes of molten hatered
Raised by demons in abodes of the end
The reaper's scythe I fall upon to light my path
Wrecked by mangled wounds of life
I have become become the resurrection of the evil one
'Y know that I don't fucking care if I live or die
I need a bishop preaching fire to get away with my sins
I despise everything I see so I don't give a fuck if ya hate me
Ain't got respect for humanity
Never lived or wanted immortality
The reaper's shadow I fall upon to obscure my path
Every day I’m being battered up until I bleed
You motherfuckas just leave me be
Ya could never give me cure for the pain I feel inside
Led by the reaper I walk in the night
Show me the way to yer kingdom come
I believe in armageddon, i've been baptised in alcohol
I’m enbodyment of antichrist
I’m living for my own demise


8. NORTHERN COMFORT

You’re the one who plays with fire in the night,
You’re the one who scares people with the scythe
You’re the one to tell him to ever live by,
You’re the lord to shaking all alone
(You're alone!)
Now you left me out to drop his sight:
I wasn't ready for the sunlight to come to my heart
Take me with you, take me far; take me away from the painless soul
Drop the haze; save the skies... Reaper never lies
Now running out to forever alone,
Sweating and shivering; cold right to the bone
Pain is come; control to fall...
Become for the mad to escape with a bottle from this world
You’re far too alive: try back to the sky
I wasn't ready for the scythe... Get me down to the trough
Like lightning from the sky,
The moon is up with pride; go listen, take away
Your place for my lying out... Being high, come heaven above
Drop it now: it falls alive; take me to the sky


9. KISSING THE SHADOWS

Hight above yer shadow smiles at me.
Way down below I hear your serenely breathe.
I’m running after you throughout
The valleys of tormented souls,
Don’t you be afraid of me only kissing your shadows...
You’re so far away, I can your scent,
When I carries your shadow,
And if you truly want I’ll cross the line I’ll follow.
I’m dreaming my way out from down below.
To get wherever you haunting from, I’ll go...
I’m kissing the shadows you surround me with,
To feel my pain vanishing away from me.
Your touching the shadows I’m surrounding you with,
So together in pease we shall be.
I’m running after you throughout
The valleys of tormented souls,
Don’t you be afraid of me only kissing your shadows...
You’re so far away, I can your scent,
When I carries your shadow,
And if you truly want I’ll cross the line I’ll follow.


10. DON'T STOP A THE TOP

[Originally recorded by Scorpions]

You never take the easy way
The wind is blowing straight into your face
You never close your eyes
For any trouble that may cross your way
There's no risk that you're not taking
Not a mountain that's too high
Spread your wings, you're gonna make it
To the best time of your life.
Don't stop at the top
(don't stop at the top)
Thouch the sky before you drop
(Thouch the sky)
Don't stop at the top
(Don't stop at the top)
Thouch the sky before you drop
(Thouch the sky)
You never make a compromise
Your will has got the power that won't break
You never say a never
To a challenge, that will come along the way
There's no risk you're not taking
Not a mountain that's too high
Spread your wings you're gonna make it
To the best time of your life.
Don't stop at the top
(Don't stop at the top)
Thouch the sky before you drop
(Thouch the sky)
Don't stop at the top
(Don't stop at the top)
Thouch the sky before you drop
(Thouch the sky)
Never stop! Never stop!
Don't stop at the top.
Never stop! Never stop! Never stop!
Don't stop at the top
Don't stop at the top
(Don't stop at the top)
Thouch the sky before you drop
(Thouch the sky)
Don't stop...


11. SHOT IN THE DARK

[Originally recorded by Ozzy Osbourne]
Out on the street I’m stalking the night
I can hear my heavy breathing
Paid for the kill but it doesn't it seem right
Something there I can't believe in
Voices are calling from inside my head
I can hear them I can hear them
Vanishing memories of things that were said
They can't try to hurt me now
But a shot in the dark one step away from you
A shot in the dark always creeping up on you
Taught by the powers that preach over me
I can hear their empty reason
I wouldn't listen I learnt how to fight
I opened up my mind to treason
But just like the wounded and when it's too late
They'll remember they'll surrender
Never a care for the people who hate
Underestimate me now
But a shot in the dark one step away from you
A shot in the dark not a thing that you can do
A shot in the dark always creeping up on you
But just like the wounded and when it's too late
They'll remember they'll surrender
Never a care for the people who hate
Underestimate me now
But a shot in the dark one step away from you
A shot in the dark not a thing that you can do
A shot in the dark always creeping up on you


12. HELLION

Hell-hound, hot leather on your legs
That smokin powder keg
You're riding on is hell-bound
And you're the one they claim
It's going down in flames
You're riding hades' rails (hellion)
Hellion - the devil's hellion child
Hellion - will never have to die
Well child, you're sweatin' and you're stoned
That alcohol you downed
Makes you crazy - all night, you damn the hurt and pain
And drink the devils rain
It's screaming out your name
The gods you worship are steel
At the altar of rock 'n' roll you kneel
A slave who forever rocks
Is chained in the devil's locks
And slain by the bloody axe I wail
