DISC 1 - Of Truth

1. MARCH OF RETRIBUTION

(Instrumental)


2. THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS

[Verse 1]
This burden
They are the scourge of mankind
Fear is their profit
And they will never rest
Producing sorrow and distress
Incitement of a monstrous industry
This is the time to act
Just cut your idle talk
We're getting nowhere fast
Just cut your idle talk

[Pre-Chorus]
Ruthless accessories
Preaching dogma from the past
Decades of stagnation
But this order will not last
This is the time to act

[Chorus]
But you send thoughts and prayers
Yet we will never rest
You ache for prudent leaders, but there are none
Declare your silent surrender, thy will be done

[Verse 2]
Inhuman policies
Serving their crime-fueled companies
A well-known syndicate
But no regime is built to last
Numbered days
Embrace all coming tragedies

[Pre-Chorus]
Your fall from grace
Just drifting, you're sinking
Descending from your decadence
Why should you take the blame?
Just lying, you're crawling
Before this blood-stained shrine
This is the time to act

[Chorus]
But you send thoughts and prayers
Yet we will never rest
You ache for prudent leaders, but there are none
Declare your silent surrender
Thy will be done

[Bridge]
And now you dare to tell me
That we shall never mourn again
We never mourn again
And again I hear their hollow sermon
There will never be a compromise
Just empty words
Forsaken are the victims
But they will never fall

[Chorus]
We see the signs of time
And we will never rest
You ache for prudent leaders, but they're all gone
We are the final resistance


3. ERADICATE

[Intro]
Forever
Your deeds are pending
Eradicate
The strife within you
Now we will rise and wake you up
We are your nemesis
Welcome your final dawn

[Verse 1]
I saw them fall
And still I see them falling
Every night and every day
There are no screams, there are no cries
Just dying souls and empty eyes
Their shadows haunting me
But their ghosts won't break my peace
We had to fight this reign of terror
No choice for me
No choice for all of us now

[Chorus]
Destroy, erase
Eradicate
No time for indecisions, for justice's sake
Wipe out, resist
Obliterate
An ever-righteous fight
Became my fate

[Verse 2]
One community, a road of destiny
Bow to no one
No, nothing tears our bond apart
Their shadows haunting me
But their ghosts won't break my peace
And I knew that justice must prevail
Confront the tyrants
Confront them all

[Chorus]
Destroy, erase
Eradicate
No time for indecisions, for justice's sake
Wipe out, resist
Obliterate
An ever-righteous fight
Became my fate

[Bridge]
Destroy, erase, eradicate
Destroy, erase, eradicate
Destroy, erase, eradicate
Destroy, erase, for vengeance's sake

[Chorus]
Destroy, erase
Eradicate
No time for indecisions, for justice's sake
Wipe out, resist
Obliterate
An ever-righteous fight
Became my fate
Annihilate
Their felon state


4. PROTECTOR

[Intro]
(I am your shield and sword)
We rise

[Verse 1]
Believe me
This is the very end
Still I am chosen to protect and defend
Ride burning skies
Cross dying worlds
But after all, I stand alone and fight this vital war
I joined this war for you
To front the chosen few
Fight until the time has come
And cry for all the fallen ones
No fear of pain, no strife in vain
Land is in sight, new hope will rise

[Chorus]
Don't be afraid, I'm by your side
So strong in mind, we'll take their hearts by storm
And no amnesty for our enemies
I am your shield and sword

[Verse 2]
Just carry on until the day is won
All hail the world, we bow to none
And I am here to heal
You have to know
I'll treat your bleeding wounds
Endure the pain, take all the strain
All doubt denied, grace will abide
I'll win this war for you

[Chorus]
Don't be afraid, I'm by your side
So strong in mind, we'll take their hearts by storm
And no amnesty for our enemies
This dark dominion will be torn

[Bridge]
No oblivion
I've seen your darkest days
We've been through hell together
A proven bond forever true
To ourselves
There's no denying
I am the last resort
This pure commitment is so firm
My iron will undying
I end this war for you

[Verse 3]
For fury and justice, I will take a stand
Regain your sight, embrace the light
For peace of mind, leave them behind

[Chorus]
Don't be afraid, I'm by your side
So strong in mind, we'll take their hearts by storm
And no amnesty for all their felonies
A new dominion will be born

[Outro]
I am your shield and sword
This new dominion will be born


5. ÜBERMACHT

[Verse 1]
Absolute rule
Reason alone did not prevail
Only one hope
Your time is up
And all new entities
Will dawn and they'll be risen from no ashes
Merciless and adamant
All options gone
We are surrounded by the wolves

[Refrain]
Es zwingt Dich auf die Knie
Vor Unerbittlichem stehst Du allein
Und voller Zweifel im Zustand der Angst
Endlich, beugt sich Dein Haupt der Übermacht

[Verse 2]
Du hast die Henker selbst gewählt
Hast jeden Widerstand aus Deinem Geist verbannt
Als die Jahre des Handelns verstrichen
Dein Tanz im Lügenreigen
Brachte Dein treues Herz zum Schweigen

[Chorus]
Days of the green wolves dawning
A new hegemony ascending, survive at any cost
Like flies you'll crowd around the only light

[Verse 3]
No storm will sweep away what you call safety
No war will swallow all your rapture
For generations, unfolding in obscurity
Lifted upward to the stars by collective heresy

[Chorus]
Days of the green wolves dawning
A new hegemony ascending, survive at any cost
Now you know, time wasted is time lost

[Refrain]
Es ist vorbei
Vor Unerbittlichem stehst Du allein
Und ohne Gnade hör' ich die Seelen brechen
Endlich, devot folgst Du dem Übergang

[Verse 4]
Did you never see the shadows?
Freedom from danger is no more
How could you fail to hear the echoes?
The calling of impending doom

[Chorus]
Days of the green wolves dawning
A new hegemony ascending, survive at any cost
So much too late you saw and understood

[Outro]
Es zwingt Dich auf die Knie
Endlich, beugt sich Dein Haupt der Übermacht


6. MY HEART AND THE OCEAN

[Intro]
Onwards

[Verse 1]
There is a storm so deep within my heart
Still raging and untamed, yet focused and upright
Raised by visions of the future
Now fueled by fury and hope

[Chorus]
I carry the torch, just unerasable
Where winds rule mighty waves
And lands so rough and cold
Know all your scorn is just like salt on my lips
A thirst for freedom, hungry for change
Eager for justness

[Verse 2]
Yes, I am at home
Where no one ever settled down
And I call family
The ones that took a stand with me

[Chorus]
I carry the torch, just unerasable
Where winds rule mighty waves
And lands so rough and cold
Know all your scorn is just like salt on my lips
A thirst for freedom, hungry for change

[Post-Chorus]
Eager for justness
Committed to redemption
(Redemption)
Opposing hidden felonies
(As truth was slain so ruthlessly)

[Bridge]
And all you once believed
Will fall into contempt
I know that all my sacrifices will make a world of difference
I faced moments of reflection, but never times of doubt
Enduring nights of contemplation
But never days of indecision
These criminals will hear our battle call

[Refrain]
Eager for justness
Committed to redemption
Revealing silent tragedies

[Chorus]
I carry the word, just unmistakable
Where lies spark bitter hate
In days so grey and old
Know all your scorn is just like salt on my lips
A thirst for freedom, hungry for change
I carry the deed, just irresistible
Where fools rule mighty states
And men so blind and dull
Know all your scorn is just the salt on my lips
A thirst for freedom, hungry for change


7. EXPATRIATE

These are the final days
Of your pharisaic unconcern
So just stand back
And witness the fall
Of modern Babylon!
New empires rose from ashes
And they will fall to dust
Just like these everlasting fortresses will burn
Believed to be untouchable
Invulnerable
Not taken by an alien army
But eroded
And weakened from within
By rotten dogma
And indifference
Awake!

Now fools will be your leaders
And these jesters are your only hope?
Drowning in decadence and degeneration
As inbred modes of thought
Will degrade all of your cultures
This elitism has lead you down the darkest path
Take up the baton
This is not the time for declining battles
Never stop disputing
Never stop the struggle
This enemy is wide awake
And willing to march way ahead of us!

They all preach harmony
But they just promote surrender
And their poisoned peace will suffocate!
As liars rise to speak
Yes, we shall wander this world
As wolves among sheep

Yet, they shall not claim these words!
They will not take this mind!
And here I stand
I can do no other!
I come into this unforgiving conflict
So deep within the darkest abyss
Excommunicated, expatriated
But still fighting amidst the heart of blackness
No longer am I misled by your deceitful hopes
Embracing the certitude of victory
The triumph of integrity
This is my strife
For all eternity

Und wie die Motten um das Licht
So tanzt Du weiter um das Feuer, das die Welt verbrennt
Stehst lauthals lachend
Und doch taub und blind vor einem unbestechlichen Gericht
Das Licht von Schatten
Das Existenz von Nichtsein trennt
Dein geschundenes Herz
Geknechtet und betrogen
Von falschen Träumen, Verblendung und unsäglicher Vernunft
Klagt Dich und Deine eitlen Götter endlich an!
Dort steigt kein milder Nebel der Vergessenheit
Es fällt kein Tuch des Schweigens über all die Zweifel
All die Lügen!
Denn Dein Wissen siegte niemals über deine Taten
Du hast verstanden und gesehen
Doch niemals aufbegehrt
Hier triffst Du die Wahrhaftigkeit
Erbarmungslos
Doch auch gerecht und rein
Ein kalter, klarer Blick in stille Tiefen Deines Seins
Aus diesem Abgrund starren Dich
Hellwach, die Augen aller Deiner Ängste an
Und tausend Stimmen Deiner Feinde
Verkünden eine hohe Wahrheit
Die wohl niemals vor in Dein Gewissen drang:
Eure Führer
Eure Farben
All Eure geliebten Staaten
Und alles, was Euch heilig ist
Sind nichts als Treibgut
In den ewigen Gezeiten
Von Aufstieg
Herrschaft
Niedergang!


8. WHAT WAR MEANS

An everlasting state of conflict
Forgotten and remote
Disregarded and concealed
There is slaughter and bloodshed every day
Hunger, pain and forced migration
So far away from your safe homes
A world engulfed in violence
None of your fathers, none of your brothers
Sons and daughters lost in action
Self-sacrifice, a privilege just granted to the poor

The cruelties you know
Are black and white
So distant in time and space
Manipulated
And sedated by military vapouring about surgical precision
And righteous interventions
Now they promise "no feet on the ground"

But you're just bored with peace
These wars are televised, edited and defanged
Blindness

No screams of anguish resound
No air raid sirens sounding through the night
You just consume the horror
Entertaining and amusive
You're not at war

Your land of bliss
Lies in an oppressed world of misery
There has never been esteem
For simple human harmony

And you're just bored with peace
These wars are long-yearned-for
They need these states to burn
Believe me, you don't know
What war means, what war does to your families

Feelings of supremacy
Reckless and inconsiderate
Contracted patriots heady with victory
And lacking ordinary empathy

An everlasting state of conflict
Forgotten and remote
Disregarded and concealed
And you're just bored with peace, an abysmal tragedy


9. TERMINATE THE UNCONCERN

We're trapped within an endless loop
Of empty words and declarations
We will not trust in you
This deliberate confusion makes me want to carve the truth (The truth)
Into their sneering faces
Our time is now
All your deceptive protestations
I can't stand it anymore
We are the wake up call
This is the end of your misleading
Divide and conquer, your tried and trusted concept
Executed and enforced
Yes, from year one

We see decades elapsing, years passing by
This idleness an endless bane
In the name of progression, it's time
To terminate, to terminate the unconcern

And a long time ago I heard your talk about our current age
And today you're still discussing times ahead
So powerless and impotent
Phrases all repetitive
I say future
You mean futures
I scream future
You hear futures
Your talk is cheap
A fight for tomorrow means
The uncompromising transformation of today
Before uneasy truths become just bitter certitudes
Yes, all must change to save the status quo

We see decades elapsing, years passing by
This apathy a heavy blame
I cannot wait for confessions
It's time to terminate
Terminate the unconcern
As all your lies became convictions
And blind beliefs infected common sense
We cannot wait for shining saviors
We will end your tampering

The days of your timeworn doctrines are over
Your fall from power imminent

And never again will you fail to fulfill
Your duties and commitments
Those days are over
Gone forever
Strength of purpose will now rule
Your corrupt world
You shall be driven


10. THE ASHES OF MY ENEMIES

(Instrumental)



DISC 2 - Of Sacrifice

1. CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD

[Verse 1]
This is a life led in the shadows of your greed
As all your rotten leaders keep on corrupting our peace
So profit-craving and addicted to increase
There is no limit
No giving over
But I swear that this cold man-eating machine will be destroyed
And shall rust away
This is a land crushed by the pressure of your lies
Since mindless wastage and consumption
Growing stronger day by day

[Chorus]
There is this cause you once called guilt
Now you just wash it off your hands
Yes, we are the children of a lesser god
But hear my oath, we shall untie this Gordian knot
Never kiss the hands of the swayers

[Verse 2]
This is a man, scarred by injustice and defeat
Enslaved and kept away from education
Now so frustrated and distracted, on their knees
They beg for reform, they pray for rescue
To the masters of their earthly misery I swear
I'll throw just everything against my bitter fate

[Chorus]
There is this cause, you once called guilt
Yet you just wash it off your hands
Yes, we are the children of a lesser god
But hear my oath, we shall untie this fatal knot
Never kiss the hands of the swayers
And never bow to servants and betrayers

[Bridge]
There is no conflict, as none of you has any interest in me
Where rights of men should rule, there are just blindness
Disregard and apathy, your shining promise
This so-called pursuit of happiness, it's all exclusive
It's just a lie to keep you warm

[Outro]
World conquest
This baneful dogma of reckless accretion
Your highest law and order
Within the darkness of your domineering ignorance
We roam about, we go astray
And nothing you will ever hear about this struggle
About this lonely fight for survival


2. LA RESISTANCE

[Verse 1]
I speak of truth and sacrifice
Yes, here I am to end
This rightless rule at last
High, high, high
High were your dreadful hopes
High, high, high
High are your casualties
Yes, I defy your leaders

[Chorus]
As long as this heart beats, there will be defiance
As long as these eyes see, they'll look for hope
Ad infinitum
All the hatred you invoke
Only one spark to light the masses
To turn the fearful calm into
A raging storm to liberate this world

[Verse 2]
I dream of peace and equity
But all this oppression
It leaves no choice for me
High, high, high
Heidegger is marching
High, high, high
High minded and reckless

[Bridge: Raffaella Tolicetti]
Tant que mon cœur battra, il battra de défi
Tant que mes yeux pourront voir, ils chercheront de l'espoir
Il ne brisera jamais, tant que je respirerai, je serrerai le poing

[Chorus]
As long as this heart beats, there will be defiance
As long as these eyes see, they'll look for hope
You'll never break these hands
As long as I breathe, I'll clench my fists
Ad infinitum
All the hatred you invoke
Only one spark to light the masses
To turn the fearful calm into
A raging storm to liberate this world

[Outro]
Unbroken
High, high, high
(High, high, high)
Hard minded
High, high, high
(High, high, high)
Unbroken
High, high, high
(High, high, high)
Hard minded


3. THE SORROWS OF VICTORY

We welcome the wandering years
We follow the road of destinies
And ten thousand men ride by my side
Leaving their homes and pasts behind
At my command, the greatest armies fall like leaves
And I triumph, so I carry the sorrows of victory
A feeling of fatedness captures my mind
We are the favoured few and I'm the chosen one

Bright eyes stare
Now I carry the sorrows of victory
And dark eyes glisten
A passage at arms, in veneration of the enemy

As crusaders leave their fortresses
Sent by the only god
Blessed and elected man at arms
I see a grand and noble army of the highest knights
Brave and superior
Elite leaders never to be conquered
Yield to their fate
Delivered to the splendid force of destiny
Their graceful providence predestinated
By the holy ghost alone

Their death defiance is so vital for this upright war
They ride with courage born from true belief
Boundless devotion until their self-abandonment
From the beginning longing for his glorious order
To be immortal and eternalized
As deathless songs will carry all their names
This glorious endeavor eternalized

Ad perpetuam memoriam

Gone are their colours
All saviors lost without a trace
Set to each other by the same divinity
As they stare into an unknown distance
Untold passages at arms
Welcome his triumph, eternally
And we carry the sorrows of victory

Oh, this glorious disaster, immortalized
Per omnia saecula saeculorum
(I carry the sorrows of victory)
In perpetuum

As crusaders reach the promised land
Their sense of mission unrestrained
I see a grand and noble army of the highest knights
Doomed and convicted
Haunted elite leaders never to return

Per omnia saecula saeculorum
In perpetuum


4. STATELESS

[Verse 1]
My bitter truth
I am stateless, just drifting loveless
Born into a dungeon and brought up by despair
Haunted by distress, isolated, dominated

[Chorus]
Never will I reach my final haven
And your freedom burns my soul
For I am stateless, no past will set my future
Oh, how I miss the purity of my heart

[Verse 2]
There was nothing that I knew about your world
And the more I learn, the more I grow apart from you
I've never met an honest smile
I never felt a caring touch
My bitter truth

[Chorus]
And never will I reach my final haven
And your liberty just confined me
For I am stateless, no past will set my future
Oh, how I miss the purity of my heart

[Bridge]
All this falseness, all your vanities and stains
Your pointless pains and sorrows
It's raining down on me like countless burning arrows
Just scorch my body and pierce my unshielded soul
Pointless
Escaped into a world full of deceit
I never learned to live under a thousand creeds

[Chorus]
Never will I reach my final haven
As my inner dungeon defines me
For I am stateless, no past will set my future
Oh, how I miss the purity of my heart

[Outro]
My bitter truth
My bitter truth
I am stateless


5. TIRPITZ

[Verse 1]
Sitting on watch
In deep and icy boreal fjords
Yet untouchable
A man-made mountain of cold
Wotan-Stahl
Wielding a silent reign of terror
From afar, northernmost
Summoned to this distant post
Still shrouded under heavy clouds
And worthy crowned by glacial mountain chains
Absolute supremacy

[Chorus]
A fleet in being
Avoided fearfully
By all her enemies
The lonely queen of the north
Raising her lethal scepter
All superior artillery
But doomed to fall as the last of her kind

[Verse 2]
A cathedral of steel
Dedicated to annihilation and dismay
Wearing the signum of oppression
Surrounded by auroras of perdition
Breathing chemical fog
Even trees refuse to grow

[Chorus]
A fleet in being
Despised abysmally
By all her enemies
The lonely queen of the north
Raising her lethal scepter
All superior artillery
But doomed to fall as the last of her kind

[Post-Chorus]
Direct hits
Out of clear skies
Twelve thousand pounds
Armor piercing Tallboy bombs
Putting an end
To her command
The death knell sounding
Over this iron tomb

[Outro: Sample]
Now through the clouds above the north coast of Norway
The camera of an Australian Lancaster spots the Tirpitz in the Tromsø fjord
Smokescreens stream around the great battleship
But earthquake bombs drop toward the target and hit
Flak puffs dangerously around the plane
An earthquake bomb bursts on the shore
But three others hit the Tirpitz fore, aft, and amidships
Below in Tromsø fjord, as the Tirpitz keels over, shrouded in smoke
The shadow of Nazi conquest shrinks from the north


6. TRUTHER

Unmask the lies
Expose the filthy liars
Combat the untruth
A lonely voice among the mute
You are the only one to see through all deception
Shunned by the world, an arrogant establishment

Your fear of sooth
No urge to get real
And wake the demon of self-awareness
And ye shall know the truth
And it shall set you free

Mental overload
And complete failure
Run like a common thread through all your lives
No, you never take the blame
Scapegoating
Stubborn, escaping reliance
Deny a social contract, no rational perception
Abhorrence of science
Elevation of deceivers, hysteria
Infatuation

Your fear of sooth
No urge to get real
And ye shall know the truth
And it shall set you free
Again and again
Your faint ideas, your antic guesswork
Replacing common sense
Truthers

Truthers
Tragic figures


7. CRITICAL MASS

[Verse 1]
The bio-sphere, the place we live
It seems like we don't give a damn
Other species flushed down the tubes
We need another race to rape
The way we live, we will destroy
Every other living thing
Till none are left except our race
And then we will destroy ourselves

[Chorus]
Another oil spill
Atomic waste displaced
Another forest dies
Bring on the acid rain

[Verse 2]
Slightly insane, the type of greed
That makes a world unfit for life
Toxic wastes destroys the seas
While poison gas pollutes the air
A waste of life, while no one cares
The earth becomes a giant tomb
Critical mass will be achieved
And ruins will be all that's left

[Chorus]
Another oil spill
Atomic waste displaced
Another forest dies

[Verse 3]
A hell on earth, what we create
Dragging life to death with us
All living things destroyed or used
Shortsighted human beings
We do these things, let them be done
Apathy creates despair
The damage done will be too great
The world wounded beyond repair

[Chorus]
Another oil spill
Atomic waste displaced
Another forest dies
Bring on the acid rain


8. EAGLES AMONG VULTURES

[Intro]
Yes, I
I see eagles among vultures
And I
I am an eagle among vultures
Yes, I lead off the fight
As an eagle among vultures
But I survive

[Verse 1]
Yes, I am drifting, I am swaying to and fro
As I pay the price
For all this dissolution
But I never lost my compass
Purposeful, I stand upright
Rectitude against all odds
And strong my will to sacrifice
But a steady object of damnation

[Chorus]
There are untold fights within me
And my fair rage tries to break free
Alienation and unrest are my constant company
It is a million of them versus a thousand like me

[Post-Chorus]
I am an eagle among vultures
Yes, I know
It is a million of them
Versus a thousand like me

[Verse 2]
There's just no deference towards the needy and the weak
I see misuse of power, I feel regard declining
A community so disunited and corrupted
Only fist law will prevail

[Chorus]
Still there are untold fights within me
And my fair rage tries to break free
It took so many tries and setbacks to see
It is a million of them versus a thousand like me

[Bridge]
Yes, I
I see eagles among vultures
And I
I am an eagle among vultures
But I survive
I take this strife
I hear them talk like masters
Not like servants
I see them guard the palace
Not the shacks

[Chorus]
There are untold fights within me
For all one is worth, pushing the law towards equality
And always wary to not fall between the cracks
It is a million of them versus a thousand like me


9. WEAKNESS LEAVING MY HEART

There is no calling
(There is no sense of temperance)
There's nothing left to limit greed and pure malevolence
A vast and clear disorder of
This stricken system
So shaken and displaced
All foundations torn

Just no one there to fight this spreading decadence
But I feel there is still uproar in this heart
I take my stance, but there is this yawning gap right by my side
As if your absence summoned all these wicked ghosts

But I feel
That all this pain
Is just weakness leaving my heart
Yes, I’ll wear the mark of the outcast like an imperial crown
Yet, all my agonies and torments
Become victories and blessings

I will carry you in triumph and in loss
Your spirit is still strong within me
And our enemies will face you
Through my words and by my deeds
Finally I know
That all this pain is just weakness leaving my heart
