Perish Or Repent Verse 1: Striving for dejection for destroying all my life It seems my old friend's challenge is still to deprive Myself of my happiness To keep on being satisfied When will this all have an end? I think after I've finally died Pre-chorus 1: As I sink into this darkness my sadness gets revealed I can't see no light at the end of the tunnel that would show me I could be healed Verse 2: So I carry on dragging myself over this path well-known I try to get rid of solitariness But still I stay alone I think depressions are the thing I'm really living for When will this all have an end? I don't care anymore Pre-chorus 2: As I sink into this darkness my sadness gets revealed I can't see no light at the end of the tunnel that would show me I could be healed I wonder if the day will come when the friend for me will be sent Perish Or Repent Chorus: The old friend comes haunting me again The old friend's name is love He will go on till I'm a broken man My old friend Perish Or Repent Lead: Haimerl & Kötterl Verse 3: Should I fight or should I give in I can't decide this now So I live on in this predicament it has to work somehow Pre-chorus 2: As I sink into this darkness my sadness gets revealed I can't see no light at the end of the tunnel that would show me I could be healed I wonder if the day will come for me when the friend will be sent Perish Or Repent Chorus: The old friend comes haunting me again The old friend's name is love He will go on till I'm a broken man My old friend Perish Or Repent

Gasoline Bath Verse 1: Sometimes when I stand in flames I jump into a lake of gasoline to make The fire even reach the sky And as it burns my skin my flesh and my bones I accept that there's no water near To kill the flame and save my life Prechorus: There's no way out ... Chorus: I have to live with it And start to get over it I'm laughing into the fire It seems ridiculous Verse 2: The heat gets a bit more comfortable And my fingers are falling to ashes I don't have a problem with my situation now "How could i've ever had?" i wonder Prechorus: There's no way out ... Chorus: I have to live with it And start to get over it I'm laughing into the fire It seems ridiculous Bridge: All this pain made me reach bottom All these flames brought me on my knees I lost my last piece of self-respect And everything just because of you Lead: Kötterl Outro: I have to get back to my old self again

My Own King Verse 1: I'll never get along with you cause you're the one can't stop to scream I hope you're nothing but a dream so one day I'll get rid of you But everyday I'm feelin' weaker now I don't sleep the dream is true Standing rigid stronger one is you I lost the control about it Prechorus: It's like climbing the stairs of insanity Chorus: I'm My Own King I'm My Own King I rule my life as My Own King I'm My Own King Verse 2: Step by step and one by one slowly creeping inside my brain Ripping out my nerves that's how you control me But don't think it's that easy I hate your ways disgusting 'n' sleazy I need to be on my own again leave me the hell alone again Prechorus: I'ts like climbing the stairs of insanity Chorus: I'm My Own King I'm My Own King I rule my life as My Own King I'm My Own King Lead: Kötterl Prechorus: It's like climbing the stairs of insanity Chorus: I'm My Own King I'm My Own King I rule my life as My Own King I'm My Own King

Fallen From Grace With My Heart Verse 1: Tears are falling From the ruins Of my heart Being burnt to ashes Hate's deceitfully crawling Into where grief begins My dreams torn apart Prechorus: But the worst has still to fess up Chorus: Memories unfold my pain And the abundance of my head Melancholy seems to stain And I wonder why we've ever met Verse 2: As my head wants to claim And wish that you were dead My heart wants to feign That I still can hold what I had Prechorus: But the worst has still to fess up Chorus: Memories unfold my pain And the abundance of my head Melancholy seems to stain And I wonder why we've ever met Leads: Haimerl, Kötterl & Schafberger Chorus: Memories unfold my pain And the abundance of my head Melancholy seems to stain And I wonder why we've ever met Now illusions blind me confusions solve myself Still I cannot see What my feelings will choose as their shelf

Lost In Your Divinity Verse 1: The first moment to see you and the glance of your eyes Is still a memory so clear unforgettable for me Led by your divinity this chapter of my life began It's deeply affected by sorrow and pain It almost killed me almost extinguished the flame Which used to be the only sense of my life Prechorus: Good things come to those who wait It just proves true for me Now my memories desecrate Your once so-called divinity All wounds are healed scars will never rest For I learned my lesson believe me Now I know what I detest What I detest is thee Chorus: I can't believe that I once was so blind To fall for your poisoned affection But now I see the absolute truth behind And for now I forget your purgation Prechorus: Good things come to those who wait It just proves true for me Now my memories desecrate Your once so-called divinity Ending the tale, closing the book And covering it with black roses But then throwing it away, forgetting it at once Is what my intuition chooses Chorus: I can't believe that I once was so blind To fall for your poisoned affection But now I see the absolute truth behind And for now I forget your purgation Leads: Kötterl & Schafberger Chorus: I can't believe that I once was so blind To fall for your poisoned affection But now I see the absolute truth behind And for now I forget your purgation As I now arrest my endless hate I see it's not even worth to call it a tale My memories forever desecrate Furthermore forget you

Harmony Of Death Verse 1: This decision makes me crawl Though it makes me yaern for more As it sends me through a track Full of traps and ways to die Ridiculous it seems For you for the rest not for me May I ask you one last question When did you lose your sense for sanity? Chorus: Every note You play to me Carefully Cuts my throat Verse 2: While I try to stand my ground You sing the Harmony Of Death It makes me crumble Watch me fall Watch me how I relearn to compose Chorus: Every note You play to me Carefully Cuts my throat Chorus: Every note You play to me Carefully Cuts my throat Every note You play to me Carefully Cuts my throat

Isolated In My Shell Of Madness Verse 1: I can't stand this anymore You're in heaven an angel I suffer in hell as a sinner Isolated and left alone Believe me here no one would feel like a winner Verse 2: Your hands ... I want to hold'em Your eyes ... I want to drown inside them No matter how this all will end I'll breakout of here Prechorus: Out of my shell of madness Into the void of sadness Chorus: I can't go further without you in my arms Even if I would have to be scourged With thousands of nails drilling inside my skin Every second without you is wasted nothing but wasted Verse 3: Cannot see the shining of fullmoon and sun Due to millions of tears But I do feel the pain Standing alone open wounds inner bleeding Prechorus: Out of my shell of madness Into the void of sadness Now I am by your side again You tell it's too late for us Chorus: I can't go further without you in my arms Even if I would have to be scourged With thousands of nails drilling inside my skin Every second without you is wasted nothing but wasted Bridge: So I sit here all alone and lose my mindss Isolated In My Shell Of Madness Lead: Kötterl Chorus: I can't go further without you in my arms Even if I would have to be scourged With thousands of nails drilling inside my skin Every second without you is wasted nothing but wasted

Burden Of Life Verse 1: Come closer welcome to my vault Still alone I'll keep on crying for a moment A moment longer than your whole life has lasted yet Help me please stand up again Prechorus: Resting here eternally I finally find my destiny Left to end in tragedy Chorus: Haunted by a nightmare my angel wings turn black Hidden in the shadow with nothing but a knife Fly away? Impossible with this burden on my back Tied down to the ground no way to save my life Verse 2: Left is nothing but one question Could it be I'm the fallen angel you've been loking for? Could this be the end of my inner struggle my infinite war? In the end I'm wrong again Prechorus: In ruins of my man-made hell I try to get the best out of this nearly buried life This Burden Of Life Chorus: Haunted by a nightmare my angel wings turn black Hidden in the shadow with nothing but a knife Fly away? Impossible with this burden on my back Tied down to the ground no way to save my life Lead: Kötterl
