Lyrics


1. FURY

I see the void in the eyes of men
A throng that sinks into the sludge of mediocrity
The deafening buzzing of a swarm
Passively sucked into the vortex of ignorance

I've got no respect
A progeny of philistines spreads
I can't stand the deceit infecting the world

Forever burn!
Oh flame of wisdom, burn
Come purify this wretched spawn from the bastard ones
Suppress the murmur of the faith, restore a cosmic silence
Let our goddess Reason rule again this miserable world

Crowding the temple of delirium
The consecrated mausoleum of Genius

Idiotic herd soiling Masters' legacy
Martyred themselves for the sake of Rationalism
Hush Galileo, deny Cartesian doubt
Stubbornly sink rotten roots in their dry flat earth

Be gone!

Shut up!
You deplorable mass, antagonists of progress
Shut up!
Scientific method foes, hushed by deduction
Silence!
As drug is not the plague, bow down before the intellect
Shut up!
You superstitious rats, erased forever

Burn!
Inflame the passion of wise men
Together as one
Suffer the fury of the Reason ad libitum


2. CARNIVOROUS LAMB

I saw lilies made nettle by a wind gust
White snow turned into coal
Rivers go upstream the waterfalls
Heaviest lumps of lead soar

They arise as night falls

Lambs growing fangs of the wolves
Howling before the kill
Arise as night falls

Until the last heart bleeds
You come and drain us like a leech
Prophet of Judas kiss
Refuse to practice what you preach
Spawn of an impious breed
Can’t hide yourself forever
As you’re the sheep that mauls the savage wolf

I’ve heard you crying out from hunger and thirst
While being the banquet host
Seen you pretending to shiver with winter’s cold
And then idling in the warmth

I’ve seen you stabbing in the back with a child’s innocence
And let the flesh rot

Forever victim, forever ogre
Carnivorous lamb!

They arise as night falls

Lambs growing fangs of the wolves
Howling before the kill
Arise as night falls

Until the last heart bleeds
You come and drain us like a leech
Prophet of Judas kiss
Refuse to practice what you preach
Spawn of an impious breed
Can’t hide yourself forever
As you’re the sheep that mauls the savage wolf


3. SUGAR

Push...
This sugar will kill your pain...

Push!

Sate your frustration
Quench your sick desire
Sweeten your pain with fairy dust
As desperation melts down this toxic powder
On that spoon you set your life on fire

Sense of shame to forget
Far astray you’ll wander
Isolated in regret
Narcotize your existence

It’s self-destruction
It’s suicide
These wicked voices bewitch you
But you’re too young to die
Speak to your torment honey
And listen to your soul
As we’re the temple of strength
And we must soldier on

Push! Push! Push! Push!
I want to see you push
The hunter has become the prey
The master’s turned into a slave
Push! Push! Push! Push!
We all want to see you push
Your mother’s cry, your father’s prayers
They just mean nothing

Push!
And pump this venom through the veins
Into your bleeding heart
Push!
And put an end to all this pain with this final act
Push!

Orgasmic rapture, down in a hole
The needle bleeds the pleasure grows
Internal fracture, denial of your soul
Your blood freezes your body

Push! Push! Push! Push!
So let me see you push
The hunter has become the prey
The master’s turned into a slave
Push! Push! Push! Push!
We all want to see you push
Your mother’s cry, your father’s prayers
Make way for silence

How can you do this to yourself, in your very prime?
Life’s worth living no matter what is the sacrifice
Fight!


4. THE PRAYING MANTIS' STRATEGY

(Instrumental)


5. MONNALISA

I was born to rule this world
A mother nature's wonder
Ready to shed my brothers' blood
Yet still your doormat
Spellbound before the slit
That cracks the biggest mountain
Waiting to be blessed by your spit
Like if it's a fountain

Your mesmerizing smile
Just makes me lose my mind

For you I die
For you I sacrifice
As you're my one and only love, Monnalisa!

In line towards the womb
The draining march of the spineless
Drooling like stray dogs before the bone
We kill at command

Bright light of my life shine
Yet make my reason blind

For you we die
For you we burn alive
As we're those ones slaves to our own Monnalisa

"Quare iam te cur amplius excrucies?
Quin tu animo offirmas atque istinc te ipse reducis
Et dis invitis desinis esse miser?
Difficile est longum subito deponere amorem
Una salus haec est, hoc est tibi pervincendum"

I gave up my whole life
Encaged my freedom
Aged like a puppet wired to your middle finger
Drown all my wishes in remorse
Tormented my soul
Stepped on my dignity in the name of your love

Oh my Adam hark the snake
Forsake your lord for me, your goddess

For you I die
Why don't you care?
For you I sacrifice
As you're my one and only love, Monnalisa!


6. WORSHIP AND FORGET

Witnessing a myriad of worms unleashing hell
They swarm inside the carcass of a world
That once was heaven
Killing, starving, violating uncorrupted flesh
They prosper protected by the blessing of a god of nothing

Worship and forget your sins
Worship and forget your sins again
Tabula rasa

Acquitted by self-fabricated verses they ravage
Expand the boundaries of the land of chaos
In the name of a fraudulent faith
Erecting marble altars to consacrate the shame
And kneel, not penitent at all, tasting redemption

Worship and forget your sins
Worship and forget to start again
You motherfucker!

As words can't wash your filthy soul
Your dogma can’t hide evil
Gore on the streets of Babylon
Blest by an imaginary god

Sermons, preachments, the word of the lord
Echoes wide in the temples of the scorn
Gathered in sancta sanctorum to adore
Simulacrums of men who fool the world

Ancient teachings deftly distorted
Chipped away the stone where they were carved
Ten commandments covered in blood
As the natural law is the only one

"Illud in his rebus vereor, ne forte rearis
Impia te rationis inire elementa viamque
Indugredi sceleris. Quod contra saepius illa
Religio peperit scelerosa atque impia facta
Tantum religio potuit suadere malorum"

Before the eyes of jesus
Beneath the blood of christ
Forget!
Below the fork of satan
Above the paradise
Forget!
Creations of men


7. ABSINTHE

[Sailor:]
A sea to sail alone
This glass of Fée Verte and nothing else
My one way journey into the storm
Surpassing the Pillars of Hercules

[Sailor:]
And I can't go back anymore
[Absinthe:]
I'm gonna hold you tight
[Sailor:]
I have no choice, I can't return
[Absinthe:]
So do I

[Absinthe:]
En route towards the dawn
Forever, together
Green is the pain, green is the drug
We melt like sugar

[Sailor:]
Come whisper words of love
Inebriate my soul again
"Emerald nectar, let me be mad!"
As Charon's taking my hand

[Sailor:]
The compass points to hell
[Absinthe:]
I will stand by your side
[Sailor:]
I spin in the spiral of distress
[Absinthe:]
Come drink the night
[Sailor:]
Can hear the sound of death-knell
[Absinthe:]
Gently harmonizes your cry
[Sailor:]
Life is a sip, I guzzled it all
[Absinthe:]
So time has come to die

[Absinthe:]
Doomed is your existence
Superfluous living thing
To dissolution you belong
Hydrate your withered "I" with Artemisia's tears
Wollow in self-pity all along
Seek for excuses to justify the fault
Distill the memories to mystify the truth

[Absinthe:]
Dearth of willpower
Hiatus of inner strength
Offense to the entire human race
Pure blood abortion of a long line of undead
Expression of mother nature shame
The arms of Morpheus are cradling your soul
Diluting torments in the night
And Dionysus is singing loud your requiem
A wordless threnody for the weak one

[Absinthe:]
I
[Sailor:]
We went to far astray
[Absinthe:]
Absinthe
[Sailor:]
To seek an inner grace
[Absinthe:]
Torment
[Sailor:]
But what we found was pain
[Absinthe:]
And delight
[Sailor:]
And sorrow

[Absinthe:]
I am the cleansing flame
[Sailor:]
Muse of the poets and painters
[Absinthe:]
What I create I can erase
[Sailor:]
For god's sake!
[Absinthe:]
Nightmare of parisian nights
[Sailor:]
Why did you do this to me?
[Absinthe:]
To kiss the moon this is the price
[Sailor:]
I should never let the sun in

[Absinthe:]
En route towards the dawn
Forever, together
Green is the pain, green is the drug
As I'm your only god


8. PISSING ON THE SCORE

Slumped in the hall of modern culture
In silence I behold
Frustrated psychos rant and rave
Gone are those times when revolutions
Led by intellectuals
Subverted certainties for grace

I need to stay alive
To shape the archetype
Define the undefined
A demiurge at war

Breaking laws and painting outside the frame
I mark old grounds with my new trace
Forever disobey
Pissing on the score that cages my dare
I forge the soundtrack of your decay
A sweet melody of disgrace will blow you cunts away
Fuck you!

Dried is the pen as much as the inkwell
Affected by a creative drought
And blank remains the parchment
Once florid land of beauty
Deaf, take refuge in chromatic illusions
To hide the emptiness
Self-styled composers basely sell smoke while...

Art is a serious thing
You can't dishonour it
And let your name live forever
Come earn your fame through the highest sacrifice
Come immolate your life!

A sweet melody of disgrace will blow you bastards away


9. THE DAY WE'LL BE GONE

Closed, the eyes of the dead
Yet I can see you all black surrounding my old abode
A cry breaking the silence
Lament of a mourner washing pain away like rain

Life, the day we'll be gone
A step into the unknown
Free from all fears
Crave the peace of our earth
Finally back to the place we belong

Life, the greatest of all lies
The time to blink our eyes and we're gone
Before we die
Crave our immortality
As the memory resides in our name and fills the hearts

Lone, my body rests
May the earth lie lightly upon my defenseless spoils
Void, epiphany of absence
Fading all my senses into the eternal night
Vacuum
Time, the day we'll be gone
The sleep of no return
Where everything's clear
Fame resounds in the words
The true epitaph that will live forever
Pain, afflicting the hearts
Infecting the souls
It's carved in the memories of our sons
Face what we've become
It shapes in the mirror a man we don't know

Time, illusion of our mind
The nemesis of the most foolish longing
Eternity is...
Fame, when back to dust again, is inert
And all that remains, it can be love or...
Pain we inflicted on other men
Infernal torment lasts for the ones we leave behind
Face, oh who we really are
Laid bare before the highest judge...the memory

Shine!
Before returning to dust
Accept the finite nature of flesh and carpe diem
Live each day as if it's your last
Unburdened of paralyzing dreads, move past
As the master taught us

Cold, the hand of fate
Cruel, falls down relentless the curtain on passing flesh
Death, the close of existence
The mother of all fears and despair of mankind
Is nothing but...life


10. EMBRACE THE OBLIVION

We vomit on eden
Unconcerned ignorants
We are the plague upon the earth
Pouring our venom
Exhaling smokes in the air
Ungrateful sons of mother nature

We are the enemies
We are the filthy breed
We are the apocalypse
We are the end

With no regret
We put this world to death
We embrace the oblivion of ourselves
Forever

Deny the future
Deny the past
In anarchy we rot
With no perspective
Rapidly drain
The soil that gave us birth

As we got heaven
We turned it into hell
Decay with no remorse
Cursing posterity
Recklessly exhaust
Every kind of resource

To self-destruction blindly we march
With no feeling but scorn
And disillusion led us towards
This point of no return

Ah!
Κυβέλη intervene!
Cleanse this foolish race with fire
For a new breed
Purify the world from this tainted seed
Oh let the Nature break free

"E tu, lenta ginestra
Che di selve odorate
Queste campagne dispogliate adorni
Anche tu presto alla crudel possanza
Soccomberai del sotterraneo foco
Che ritornando al loco
Già noto, stenderà l'avaro lembo
Su tue molli foreste. E piegherai
Sotto il fascio mortal non renitente
Il tuo capo innocente:
Ma non piegato insino allora indarno
Codardamente supplicando innanzi
Al futuro oppressor"
