Veracity 05:42
Veracity Verse 1: A black box full of heart-shaped pieces of paper Is all that's left from you Wretched remains of irreplaceable time Deliberately thrown away The dead heart inside me screams for ressurection Revive it one more time I want my wintersun to shine again Chorus: New thoughts of failure rising I kill the old ones every once in a while I searched for love and security But in the end I soon lost it all Everything... Left to cry alone in hate and pain Verse 2: Deep inside me this selfishness kept breeding For far too long But still it's just not fair To hear myself scream "Noone else!" Now I wrapped this shell around me But I still will mourn for More than a year of everything I needed How can this year already be gone Bridge: Even meeting my dead end There is nothing I repent I must accept my sun has now set But still there's nothing I regret Apart from the end I'm dying now Chorus: These thoughts of failure raising I can't prevent myself from bleeding again This search for love and security will finally end in pain and misery Everything is lost Left to die alone in hate and pain Lead: Kötterl

Grey The Fire That Still Burns In Our Eyes Verse 1: Though nothing's changing We still search for something to harness Into the deepest cavern Our dead bird's songs never rest Chorus: Grey The Fire That Still Burns In Our Eyes Ashes from the pyre Imprisoned but who denies Lead: Schafberger Verse 2: As we were solemn Our incubator nurished our content Now lying broken Woefully we pay the eternal debt Chorus: Grey The Fire That Still Burns In Our Eyes Ashes from the pyre Imprisoned but who denies Bridge: And we were dancing... Oh you flames you dark ones in my hell I open wide... And pour the bitterness of life within Chorus: Grey The Fire That Still Burns In Our Eyes Ashes from the pyre Imprisoned but who denies Grey The Fire That Still Burns In Our Eyes
4.
Dynasty Without A Future Verse 1: Staring on my riven devoided self I realise I'm still a slave Louring on this shattered state I let the sun blind my eyes once again Prechorus: And I never ask why Because I already know the answer Chorus: Before you take one last breath Another breath of fresh air You know your strength has left you Was it really worth the share Verse 2: But something's missing where's your dignity I find new chains everytime I bleed They rip my skin defile my flesh Almost as your feeble embrace The border is the bone I'm abandonend by the sun's afforded effort to give me warmth But soon I realise That light has never shone Lead: Haimerl Chorus: Before you take one last breath Another breath of fresh air You know your strength has left you Was it really worth the share Now listen my child noone escapes Not even well-off maggots like you We die the same diseases Now tell me what's your share
5.
I, My Demon, His Wrath Verse 1: When was the last time I slept? I don't know It seems this time I'm crawling on the bones Prechorus: This boat's fate is to break swift And sink asunder And this time there's just no rock To crawl under Lead: Schafberger Verse 2: It's this distinct rage Engulfed by fear This monument of pain I want to sear His direful screams Rend fissures in my ears Inner clocks are ticking Loudly for a tear Prechorus: Emotional strain slithers merciless My deceiver my eyes of glass Chorus: No I don't need your amend I don't depend on you Please tell me you're the end I don't require aid I'm not a part of you I'm only suffering the truth The circle that we run Forever in despair Subsconciousness his lair I conflict this disease Conflict his disease He cannot be seized Lead: Kötterl Verse 3: I reach out for myself Hoping his grasp will become weak As I gaze upon my arms I see he's the one I seek Prechorus: Now I perceive that my mind is distinct Shall I give in or follow my instinct Chorus: No I don't need your amend I don't depend on you Please tell me you're the end I don't require aid I'm not a part of you I'm only suffering the truth The circle that we run Forever in despair Subsconciousness his lair I conflict this disease Conflict his disease He cannot be seized
6.
Bleeding Forevermore Verse 1: I become aware of all these lies Life is to blame for Dirges always turn into futile cries As I'm Bleeding Forevermore Prechorus: Nothing to see which could comfort me Not even my remaining pride could win this bitterly cold fight Verse 2: Whensoever one anguish is over The next begins But which much more intensity And one way less to flee Prechorus: Dirges still turn into futile cries As I am Bleeding Forevermore Chorus: One step closer to edge of insanity I joggle my prison bars with might and maim I wonder if I will ever find the belonging key And if I'll ever escape this mental chain Lead: Schafberger Verse 3: Finally I try to continue and I succeed For I begin to adore every sorrow Now I resolve to heed That this won't change tomorrow Prechorus: Dirges still turn into futile cries As I am Bleeding Forevermore Chorus: One step closer to edge of insanity I joggle my prison bars with might and maim I wonder if I will ever find the belonging key And if I'll ever escape this mental chain
7.
Beloved Sanctuary Verse 1: Shouting that I serve you not I torn you from your sleep I hold your hand in dismay Assuaging your desperate sight We stare at the hills below Into the azure of tonight A crimson flash shoots through my eyes And from within my demon cries Chorus: My burden is to shelter you I preach to you to apprehend That every teardrop on your face Is not self-evident Now my fulfillment is achieved I seize the day You have lost all that you believed My Beloved Sanctuary Verse 2: You grasp my hand we run away Black clouds shape in the sky The filthy blackness of your soul And the sable in your eyes Now tell me what you really need Is it your precious god Not even he bestows you heed Open your eyes to see the fraud Bridge: Run faster run faster I scream as you cry Impostor impostor I shout into the sky Chorus: My burden is to shelter you I preach to you to apprehend That every teardrop on your face Is not self-evident Now my fulfillment is achieved I seize the day I remember how you were called My Beloved Sanctuary Leads: Schafberger & Kötterl Bridge: Run faster run faster I scream as you cry Impostor impostor I shout into the sky Run faster run faster I scream as you cry Impostor impostor I shout into the sky Chorus: My burden is to shelter you I preach to you to apprehend That every teardrop on your face Is not self-evident Now my fulfillment is achieved I seize the day You have lost all that you believed My Beloved Sanctuary
8.
Of Father And Son Verse 1: Look right into my eyes Watch the blind man lock his soul It's the silence I despise Leaving a heart with one more hole Look right into these eyes Can you see the king of lies Shutting up where he should speak Where's the moment I still seek for Prechorus: Read my thoughts And find your own Chorus: Shall we persist In remaining silent Oh father tell me After all these years of irrelevance Speak to me Verse 2: When you descended to what we are To all the things that we've done wrong To what we could have done so far I held your hand as I wished to all along The moment we broke the ice Death started freezing it again These few words just were not enough To take this everlasting pain away Prechorus: You red my thoughts And found your own Chorus: We did not persist In remaining silent Oh how I miss you After all these years of blindness You made me see

The Endless March -January 1942- Today I found my dearest friend ... dead The face of an aged and tired man His thighs shot through by a tank He slowly and painfully bled to death While I covered his still warm stomach With my frozen fingers I finally and absolutely realised That this raging war is nothing but insanity I write these words with tears in my eyes As for now I know They could be the last I leave to this cursed world We failed to see through the web of lies We failed to understand that there is nothing glorious about war And now we have to pay... Verse 1: Back then when things all fell into place We got intoxicated by war's shady embrace For the welfare of our reich We took victory for granted Just as we were told Years went by and by now we are in doubt In doubt of our charge across the lands The dying we wittnessed can't be of avail For anyone Prechorus: The clock of war will prove That hope is but in vain Obliterated youth How shall we bear up all the pain Chorus: We've marched on as the ones who still believed Before our minds perceived The downfall's closing in on us and One by one will the sun set down on us Our memories to dust Our farewell though'll be sung forevermore Verse 2: This war is a shortcut to the absolute demise It's all unfolding before our dying eyes The death of millions of fathers The death of millions of sons No longer I care soon all will be gone Yet forced to still march on Chorus: We've marched on as the ones who still believed Before our minds perceived The downfall's closing in on us and One by one will the sun set down on us Our memories to dust Our farewell though'll be sung forevermore Leads: Kötterl & Schafberger Chorus: One by one will the sun set down on us Our memories to dust Our farewell though'll be sung forevermore One by one will the sun set down on us Our memories to dust Our farewell though'll be sung forevermore One by one will the sun set down on us Our memories to dust Our farewell though'll be sung forevermore One by one will the sun set down on us Our memories to dust Our farewell though'll be sung forevermore For our cause we sacrificed For the cause we sacrificed For a cause we sacrificed For which cause we sacrificed For nothing we did sacrifice ourselves
