Track Name: They Murdered your Youth
Blood comes from the incubator... You are still wondering..
How you came here, how they got you, how we live here..
Everyday you cough hard, you are soaked with poison in your lungs
Life so desperately predictable now, you even hate your maker now

Your parents.. What were they thinking.. And your friends..
Why are they so blind?

As for me, don't ask more and I'll tell you that:
I don't care where they bury me - I don't mind where they bury me
Forever in Hell without a heart, forever in Hell without a heart

Everyday we struggle in Hell without a heart
Everyday I walk, every single distance from my home to something that
gives me money - Everyday we struggle in Hell without a heart
There is no family... No there is no such thing.. Everyday we live and get sick
with a little help of our own... Everyday we struggle in Hell without a heart
Is this a start? Or an end? Forever in Hell without a heart..

As for me, don't ask more and I'll tell you that:
I don't care where they bury me - I don't mind where they bury me
Forever in Hell without a heart, forever in Hell without a heart
Track Name: Every Kiss is a Carcrash
I am sentenced, here in your wastelands
You roll your red eyes and I fear not as time goes by
I'm a soldier here in the dead zone
You fire your gun and I die each and every time
I'm a movie star here in reality
We roll and fade like old films do

Every kiss is a Carcrash
We explode into wasted metal plates
Every kiss is a Carcrash
We roll over the same burning fields

I'm a raven here in a graveyard
we bury memories but praise the past
I'm a man here in forever
You hold my hand and guide me as you promised to
I'm you, here is us
You are me, we rule this war

Every kiss is a Carcrash
We explode into wasted metal plates
Every kiss is a Carcrash
We roll over the same burning fields
Track Name: My Fears are Birds
I can see the tragedy in your eyes
When you rub your face from the disguise
I can’t imagine that you always keep the things
that hurt you most - the lies…
I kept the letters, you kept the anger
the nonsense and the hate
It’s nice to have the knowledge
who wins these games…

Desperation now is coming
It’s like a knife cutting slices of steel
This could only cause confusion
This could only be … deceit.
Track Name: Bourbon Bedtime Story
There was sweet Gabrielle once,
she lived up on the hill
Her house was small but full of lies,
her husband dead but full of flies

Her love for him untold to man,
she gave promises and vows
He was good man and kind,
but Gabrielle had Devil's mind

Times were hard, really hard...
People had nothing to expect
Poor husband owned a meat market,
but Gabrielle was so upset
with this matter...

The knives, the cleaver and the blood
made her mind spinning along
She stabbed poor man right in the heart,
put him in the fridge and sang her part..

My lovely husband I'm so sorry
-said and cried out loud-
these times are hard and I'll be proud
to sell the finest meat in town...
Track Name: Walk in the City
Promises will never come true,
heresies will never save you
Like a flower in the desert we live,
alone... all alone... in the sand..

Reversed evolution / Progress on zero
In a locked cage I live and the monkeys have the key

You see.. I'm a tape in fast forward..
I don't dream 'till I find a job..
I don't feel 'till I have the money,
the money paying for my cross
Followers command leaders - bury them in fear
Psychosis of the mass produces cancer within us..

Reversed evolution / Progress on zero
In a locked cage I live and the monkeys have the key
Track Name: Wolves in my Backyard
They came to me one night of spring,
I welcome them with tears in my eyes
They spoke for the pain, they spoke for the loss..
With tears in their eyes
They told me of Paradise and Ararat
and why the moon is always sad
They showed me slaughtered children
and men with spider lust...

I suffer - You suffer, embrace the wolves and drink red wine
Sooner or later their tear you apart, beautiful leper with no heart,
your death is pure art...

I know you very well,
you are the serpent, you are the fly
You move from one place to another
with no respect for the ghost called soul
So I decided to open my eyes and see with my ears
...and see the sickness from deep inside..
And this is sad...This is sad..
This makes me the animal i am...

I hate - You hate, embrace me and drink red wine
As i stab you with the blade, beautiful leper with no heart,
your death is pure art...
I suffer - You suffer, embrace the wolves and drink red wine
Sooner or later their tear you apart, beautiful leper with no heart,
your death is pure art...
Track Name: Summer Ocean Death
Why is it difficult to drown?
Complicated to see?
So easy to fall
and why you always seek blood.?
As the raindrops fall
into oceans of mud,
we keep the moon within
but we always seek blood

And the moon you keep
and the tears you cry
and the sea you drink
and the blood you seek...
They won't save you my dear...

Your existence brings infection,
playing with human depression..
as I drive towards the ocean..
In the summer night,
I bring the glass on my lips
and realise I can't forgive
that you always seek blood.

And the moon you keep
and the tears you cry
and the sea you drink
and the blood you seek...
They won't save you my dear...

Your existence brings infection,
playing with human depression..
But no one will save you my dear..
Track Name: Brother
From my cold dark room I'm trying
to stay out of trouble as you said
You never danced, you never smiled
From my cold dark room
I'm thinking of him, he's far away now
Everybody is free out of this place
Don't you know there is a sun
above this black veil?

I never met my brother,
he was born in a secret
place away from here
He came, saw and go...

I never met my brother,
he was a sailor and travelled
long far away from here
He came, saw and go...

From my cold dark room,
I dream of other places
The wind, the sea and the wine
making ethereal conspiracies

I see a dove and a crow
a hand and a heart
the shadow of a bottle
the shape of a knife
and I go away... I'm going away...
Track Name: Stories from a Bar
Light up one more cigarette and tell me
why a knife is as bright as a star...
Let's have one more and think,
why a gun is as warm as the sun
I play a record and fill my cup,
cheap whiskey for us tonight
I don't blame anyone for the horror,
not even my dead friends

Honey for the night...
We gazed at the sunset outside
The music is velvet and soft...
as we try to feel the emptiness..

I was cooking my guts and my innocence,
here's a toast for what we had
as smoke comes from my mouth,
a white horse appears and stares at me
But I don't blame anyone for tonight,
I blame myself for what I was
so I try not to fall from my horse
with the taste of tobacco on my lips

Honey for the night...
We gazed at the sunset outside
The music is velvet and soft...
as we try to feel the emptiness..

Are you still listening?
"All of this is nothing my friends",
he said and paid for our drinks
"Are you still listening? oh, boys...
Are you still listening? my, boys..."
Track Name: The Storm is Coming
I saw it coming, he said...
The clouds are gathering up in the sky...
The storm is coming my friend,
so get your feet back on the ground
and just start running to the East
the West is boiling in its blood..

To the East... Run to the East...

A broken smile in your face...
They took us everything we had..
The storm is coming, he said,
but you will laugh in the end
a new birth from a new blood
the Phoenix rises in the east...

To the East... Run to the East...
Track Name: Bloodbath in E Minor
Existence is a seldom disease
The abuse of Love
You know, I still believe in you...
You know, whatever I said was true

The dominion of empty acts
our love is in the hospital
You know, I never wanted to leave
You know, happiness was there

Cut you down, out of my life
As your river turns to blood
Drown you out of my life
As your river turns to wine

Now I drive the western rivers,
to bury my heart and drown my art
You know how to love me and destroy,
you know how to wrap yourself in flames

Cut you down, out of my life
As your river turns to blood
Drown you out of my life
As your river turns to wine

One day I will return,
to the land I love best
One day I will return,
to the river I love best

As your river turns to blood
As your river turns to wine
Track Name: The Fall and the Loss
Hide me Mother
Hide me and take me away
From this world you brought me to

Come on Father
Come and take the life
you once gave me

Forgive me my Brother
For I’ve been kind
as Abel

And God, oh God
How I wish you don’t exist
For I am guilty
as Hell

A rose and a cross
then the Fall and the Loss
