1.OCULUS EX INFERNI




2.SET THE WORLD ON FIRE

God-like perfection
reflect in these eyes
reaching for my place - with stars on high

Damn the betrayers
Trough twilight, I fall
Headlong flaming - I curse you all

There's no turning back
falling deep into the sweet collapsing black

CHORUS

Fly with me - forever higher
and with these wings,
we'll Set the world on Fire
Fly with me - through scorching skies
You and I - the Lie of Lies

I'm the Master of Illusion
Minister of Sin
Two-faced snake - wicked - shedding skin

I will forsake you
destroy and unmake you
with all my might, I will take you down

There's no turning back
falling deep into the sweet collapsing black

Fly with me - forever higher
and with these wings,
we'll Set the world on Fire
Fly with me - through scorching skies
You and I - the Lie of Lies

Don't leave me - you need me
only I know the way...

REPEAT CHORUS




3.DOMINATION

All along the waste and wild
legions of lost scream in pain
A million shattered destinies
all slowly drowning in tears of flame

Break the chains around your necks
lick your wounds you Dogs of War
Raise your banners ever high
and ravage the Babylon Whore

I, with the darkest insurrection, victimize
Hail the horrors, all hail and sanctify
...my Domination

Rotting from the inside out
ripping away to the core
A million lies unite as a one
slaughtering innocence for evermore

Sound the mighty drums of doom
march to this black heart of hate
Clawing, tearing, slashing deep
defiantly fighting our fate

I, with darkest insurrection, victimize
Hail the horrors, all hail and sanctify
...my Domination

Turn the waters red with rage
burn all the earth shore to shore
Open wide the Gates of Hell
defile the Babylon Whore

I, with darkest insurrection, victimize
Hail the horrors, all hail and sanctify
...my Domination
...my Domination




4.SERPENT'S KISS

Covenant of pure corruption
sink my teeth deep into you
Solemn oath of sheer Destruction
a Nightmare, though and though

In that hour - I'll devour
Hope is swallowed up in Pain
taste the venom - feel the power
coursing though my veins

I'm corruption
I'm destruction, though and though

Trust in Me...for I will set you free
with a Serpent's Kiss
with a Serpent's Kiss

Be my Light and I won't stray - make me beg;
make me pray
Tell me when to laugh or cry, - when to live
and when to die

Forgotten and betrayed
Rotting and decayed
left to wither - without a voice
left to slither - without a choice

Crucifier - spitting Fire
say your little empty prayers
This Empire - growing higher
...to this spite, I swear

Sharp tongue severs - like a razor
swimming in a sea of Rage
Vindicators - masqueraders
all the World's my Stage

I devour
I empower - God of Pain

Trust in Me...for I will set you free
with a Serpent's Kiss
How could it come to this?
with a Serpent's Kiss




5.PARADISE LOST

In the cold misty Morning
gleaming rays awake the dawn
Here I stand - a Stabger in this land
does your conscience betray you?
falling from grace - feel the Sun on my face
does desire stille hold true?

Mystified by her beauty - does the hunter pity
his prey? Under starless skies all Love must die
and fade away

Take my hand - Divine or Damned - Make a stand
Seize the day
Yours or mine - Damned oe Divine
Draw the line - come what may...

CHORUS

Looking down from Ethereal Skies
Silent crystalline tears I cry
For all must say their last goodbye - to Paradise

Has my yearning been silenced
by angelic skin of white?
Love conquers all, though Heavens fall
this fateful night.

Yours or mine - Damned or Divine
Draw the line - serpentine...
Love is a tragedy
all that I have, all that I'll ever need
is right here inside
Let the winds of freedom be my guide

REPEAT CHORUS

...so I've cheated and I've lied
been the victim of foolish pride
and I've begged and I've crawled
and I've battled and bleed for it all
now I'll savor the downfall...of paradise

REPEAT CHORUS - TWICE




6.EVE OF SEDUCTION

It's alright - no need to question
Taste the night - just close your eyes
it just takes one bite

All you need's in my possession
Just believe - come take my hand, tonight and
trust your dreams

I'm falling all to pieces, slowly loosing control

Can it be true?
Why can't tou see - I'm Burning for You
There's no disguising my desires - what can I do?
All you will know - give me your heart
give me your soul
I'll tear it apart, so long as you'll never let me go.

On your ear - a whisper, fallen
Show no fear - go spread your wings and fly
shed no tears

Pleasure's pain - I ear it calling
feed the flame - withing becoming kin with the
Sons of Cain

I'm falling all to pieces, slowly loosing control

Can it be true?
Why can't you see - I'm Burning for You
There's no disguising my desires - what can I do?
All you will know - give me your heart
give me your soul
I'll tear it apart, so long as you'll never let me go.

Can it be true?
Why can't you see - I'm Burning for You
There's no disguising my desires - what can I do?
All you will know - give me your heart
give me your soul
I'll tear it apart, so long as you'll never let me go.




7.THE WALLS OF BABYLON

Down the plains - come Hell Riders
blood of ice and hissing breath
Consumed by this Lust - into battle
staring down the Eyes of Death

Skies of Red - Winged Thunder Breathing
Lightning Fire - Invaders - Light stayers
Cut down the fiends and betrayers
Dark destriyers - can't avoid or deny us

War Hammer of the Gods
Bring down The Walls of Babylon

Legions of Lies - beating down the Lamb
Wings of Wars, they pulverize
Wrath is my name - feel the Hatred
hurling defiance toward the Skies

Skies of Red - Winged Thunder Breathing
Lightning Fire - flesh furning - blood burning
the gears of War, ever turning with conviction
Malediction is King

War Hammer of the Gods
Bring down The Walls of Babylon

So here I stand - beyond Apocalypse
God of Pain - in lethal stealth
Casualty of Pride - I will never be denied
A Lord of War...at war with Myself

Skies of Red - Winged Thunder Breathing
Lightning Fire - earth-shaking - bones breaking
the Hand of fate dominating
one by one the Stars are Falling

War Hammer of the Gods
Bring down The Walls of Babylon




8.SEVEN

Above all - high and mighty - will like a towering
steed - a Weh of concert that I weave
More...wanting much more - grasping with
Envious Eyes - dark desires lead to words
that cut like knives

Frozen in your tracks - No remorse
Embrace the rack - Twisting down your spine
...'till the End of Time

CHORUS

It's Fire and Ice - make the Sacrifice
No one there to catch you when you Fall
It's Shadows and Sin - Enemies within
You'll be fine, so cross the line and Damn it all

Slip into Shades of Nothing - yesterday's
promises die - More, taking more than I need to
bleed you dry

Cut your throat - Abandon all Hope "blood-money
lusting" portrayal - break the trust from dawn
to dusk bring down the curtains on your final
act of betrayal

Empty hands recoil...feel your Blood begin to boil
Tails and Fangs of Doom - violently consumed

REPEAT CHORUS

Virtue or vice? Will you pay the price?
When there's no one to catch tou when you Fall
...so Damn you All...

(interlude)

Give me hot-blooded yearning - infect and pollute
all that's pure - more than my heart can endure
Vengeance and Fury - Screaming
an eye for an eye - lashing out Anger
I curse the sky

Demon Song is sung - first your ear...and then
your tongue - Wear this Mask of fire - and burn
for all you've desired

REPEAT CHORUS




9.THE SACRIFICE

Your eyes, singing to me sweet lullabies
while you lay there in submission
Forbidden desire alone in the moonlight
hearts afire - burn away our inhibitions

When the stars lose their fire
And night steals the morning away
Forever and a day
I will stay - I will stay here with you my love

Sacrifice, a heartbeat away from paradise
All my reason's giving way to temptation
Fear and shame - looking for someone else to blame
We're devoured by these fruitless accusations

With every fleeting breath I take
Maybe our love was a mistake
Eternal life - I'd trade it for
One moment beside you...

When the stars lose their fire
And night steals the morning away
Forever and a day
I will stay - I will stay here with you my love

When the stars lose their fire
And night steals the morning away
Forever and a day
I will stay - I will stay here with you my love




10.REVELATION

Against the wall - they see you
nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

Heroic Mask - the cracks are showing
a Faceless God to shape the perfect Lie

Wounds of Hate have pierced so deep
they never die - my revenge is bittersweet

Lost in the night wandering alone
Try as I might to escape the fight
It never lets me go - I've got to find a way
A way to Rise above it All

Savior or the Fool - the mystery
fades into the cruel shade of night

This broken disguise can not comprehend
what was, and will be... untilthe very end

Wounds of Hate have pierced so deep
they never die - my revenge is bittersweet

Lost in the night wandering alone
Try as I might to escape the fight
It never lets me go - I've got to find a way
A way to Rise above it All

(interlude)

...oh, where the North Wind sleeps - that is when
we'll meet again...oh, where the shadows creep
into Twilight, I'll descend
Good and Evil, it never ends
You're just a means to an end

Lost in the night wandering alone
Try as I might to escape the fight
It never lets me go - I've got to find a way
A way to Rise above it All


Lost in the night wandering alone
Try as I might to escape the fight
It never lets me go - I've got to find a way
A way to Rise above it All
