Track Name: A Thousandth Part
A Thousandth Part

Verse 1:
The sands of time for humanity are running low
But still everyone tries to get the best place for the show
Little do they know, that the clock is ticking faster
Just a wink away - from a rhapsodic dance - of disaster

Bridge 1:
On the rays of nemesis they hail the dawn of an erupting sun

Verse 2:
Incandescent, there she lays the beauty of extinction
A moment so cruel, so real, no melancholic fiction
A ticking time-bomb encased by plushy promises
You better realize or consider your last wish

Bridge 2:
On the waves of indifference they sail towards a deep abyss

Chorus:
Thousand ways to die – Blood runs from altars of madness
Thousand bloody lies from a false profession of greed
Thousand weary sighs – Tears become a sea of sadness
Thousand stupid lies – Born from a mendacious vow of fear


SOLO

Chorus
Track Name: Among The Blind
Among The Blind

Verse 1:
Like sirens with enchanting songs
Bewitching disoriented minds
Devious architects about
To leave humanity behind

Surrounded by illusions
Profuse in promises
Society surrenders
To the restless parasite

Bridge:
Prophets of doom
To the slaughter lead the lambs
Prophets of gloom
Raise their iron hands

Verse 2:
Impalpable intimations
Insidious changes happening
For those who try to move
Appear the shackles 'round their feet

For every cancer that is healed
A wealth of new ones prosper
An everlasting fight
Against the Hydra and her heads

Bridge

Chorus:
Among the deaf
The loudest cry for help remains unheard
Among the dumb
Perfidious deeds conflate into demise
Among the blind
Obvious transgressions – have no need to disguise
The one-eyed will be kings

SOLO

Verse 1

Bridge

Chorus (3x)
Track Name: Cathodic Messiah
Cathodic Messiah

Verse 1:
Angry faces on the screen
Intoxicated beggars
Rotten, useless parasites
Bull’s eye for the mob

Chorus:
Cathodic Messiah
Bow to the master of the world
// Cathodic Messiah
Director of your life
Cathodic Messiah
Bow to the master of the world
Cathodic Messiah

Verse 2:
Messy bastards all around
In compliance with their role
Feeling sorry for themselves
In their rabbit hole

This crap - you call reality
To stupefy the masses
Infects our society
Compassion’s left behind

SOLO 1

CHORUS

SOLO 2

Verse 3:
Sink! - or swim is what you preach
In your scripted world
Human life is cheap for you
Clean conscience out of reach

Chorus (2x)
Track Name: Victimized
Victimized

Verse 1:
Corrupt politicians, gamblers of war
Profit's what they are looking for
Greedy bastards, consumers of hate
Insanity will seal their fate
Canting priests, sinners of faith
Glorify god - until it’s too late
Factitious babbitts, accountants of death
Out for money 'till their final breath

Chorus:
Victimized for the praise of gold
Victimized for society’s fault
Victimized for a long lost goal
Victimized to rescue a desperate soul

SOLO

Verse 2:
Try to break out or follow the sign
Live the curse, believe revelation divine
Don’t become a victim of fate
Step into the light before it’s too late
Military intelligence, spies of lies
The fear of the unknown justifies
Blind obedience, servants of doom
Mankind drowns in a blackened gloom

Chorus
Track Name: Tortured Mind
Tortured Mind

Verse 1
Unconsciously we are running
Straightforward into demise
Wondering how to break free from the claws
Of the monster we're feeding with lies

Into the abyss we're falling
Straightforward into the void
Lost and confused on our old beaten tracks
We are wandering without an aim


Verse 2
The facade of democracy crumbles
We're invoking the ghosts of the past
Full of despise we look down on the ones
Who deserve our attention and care

United oppressors deciding
About the fate of the world
Slowly the noose is tightening on freedom
And mankind is bound for despair


Chorus
Come and follow me into my tortured mind
Discover all the pain of our kind
Follow me, cross the line
Between clairvoyance and fear
Don't you know
We're running out of time

Solo

Verse 1

Chorus (2x)

Schluss
Follow me my friend
Out of this dead-end
Track Name: Prelude To Madness
Instrumental
Track Name: Hell (Is What You Make Of It)
Hell (Is What You Make Of It)

Verse 1:
Thousands beg for food and water
That’s no concern of mine
I’m so tired of this laments
Poverty should be a crime

They live from hand to mouth
But yet complain of their distress
That´s no reason to raise hell
Millions even cope with less


Bridge:
Far beyond the economy the state has to be strong
High above the equal rights, there were we belong


Chorus (2x):
Im' the light
I blaze the trail to your demise
I'm your guide
The piper leading you to suicide


Verse 2:
From above my ivory tower – I smile
And keep them all in line
Someone always has it worse
Just climb down and stop to whine

Their best endeavor can’t be enough
While my wealth is always growing
They say: “Don’t you even dare!”
But why should I really care?!

Chorus (2x)
Track Name: Of Knights And Men
Of Knights And Men

Verse 1:
The knights in shining armour
Are ready for the fight
On the quest for maids of honour
We’re riding through the night



Bridge:
The wise, the brave, the pure, the black
Every peril’s driven back

Verse 2:
We're travelling all through the land
With a mission - on gods command
We even cross the bridge of death
On the way to save the world

Bridge

Chorus:
On the everlasting quest for the holy grail
Against almost every threat we will prevail
Just before the sacred chalice comes within our reach
The strong arm of the law cuts our retreat

Verse 3:
Ready yet to take our heels
Before the storm breaks loose
No matter what’s the question
We know the answer we should choose

Bridge

Chorus

Some men are frightened of rabbits
But no cowardice will be shown
Counting from one to three
And the holy grenade will be thrown
And although the French wind us a lot
We live and fight - for Camelot

SOLO

Chorus
Track Name: An Eye For An I
An Eye For An I

Verse 1:
On the corner of a street
Behind computer screens
With every step, with every click
Your profile’s taking shape

Bridge:
Unowned eyes stare into space
Hidden fingers point at you
You can divine this cold embrace
With every breath, with every step

Verse 2:
In the supermarket on checkout
Unconcerned you leave your marks
Free of charge but not for free
Switch off your mind - for a little fee

Bridge

Chorus:
No more places left to hide
Everywhere you go
Almost everyone floats with the tide
And although anyone seems blind
Everywhere you go
You will always find an open eye for you
(Someone always keeps an eye on you)

Ende
Open your eyes think about what you see
Although it's obvious, it's hard to believe
The eyes in your back, they are staring at you
Sinner or saint, the decision is no longer yours

Open your eyes
Think about what you see
Sinner or saint
The eyes in your back stare at you
Track Name: Parasite
Parasite

Verse 1:
You try to run your fellows down
You´re rotten to the core
You kill the goose that lays the golden egg
But you want more

Bridge 1:
One day you'll realize - you´re not the better one
And all the chances you´ll have had
Will be dead and gone

Verse 2:
I don´t care about you lies
Don’t care about your reasons
For me you´re just a clown - without audience

Bridge 2:
One day you'll realize
Your life has passed you by
Without a gain, without a friend
Condemned to lonely die

Chorus:
You're a spawn of disgust
Never can't get enough
Every hand that will feed you - you'll bite - without fail
Spinning your web of lies
Laying traps on your way
A venomous spider - a malevolent soul in disguise

SOLO

Verse 3:
Bastard, get out of my sight
I don't want you in my mind
The time is right to strike your flag
To shake off the yoke and to change tack

Bridge 3:
One day you'll realize
You're just a piece of crap
And all the people you´ve cheated will laugh at you
Watching you crash!
Track Name: Running Down
Running Down

Verse 1:
As you look at yourself in the mirror, convinced an arrogant
All you want to achieve is to be better than the rest
No concerns and no remorse, for you everything looks fine
Even if the end comes near, you won’t change your mind

Chorus:
Running down the river of life - Drowning in the tide of doubts
Running with the track of strife - Without even knowing why
Running down the stream of time - Passing by the age of redemption
Running with the path of grime - Without even knowing why

SOLO

Verse 2:
As you get older, you feel yourself bitter and depressed
All youth is gone, yet you’re the one, that fights against the rest
No excuses, no lautering, you still think everything is right
Until your end is coming near, you won’t change your mind

Chorus
Track Name: Spring Is In The Air
Spring Is In The Air

Verse 1:
Rabble-rousing politics
The press with sails trimmed to the wind
The mantra of austerity
Sealing Europe’s fate

Elitist and criminal
In the forefront of society
Cynical and arrogant
The actors of the farce

Bridge 1:
A cold wind has bitten
The flower called democracy
The time is now for spring
In Germany

Chorus:
Read between the lines
The hardly wrapped up lines
You won’t have any gain from burying your head in the sand
The happy days are gone
Oppression’s growing strong
Awakening to blossom in dead glance
Deceivers rule the land

Verse 2:
Still repeating all this lies
Necessity of spending cut
No compassion for the poor
Only money counts these days

Throwing sand into our eyes
Eroding solidarity
Propagating misery
For markets to increase

Bridge 2:
Trampled all over
Our freedom and our privacy
The ones supposed to serve us
Are drowning us instead

Chorus

SOLO 1

Chorus

Break:
Lying, spying, killing globally
Total war against society
The witch hunt is on
