Track Name: Perish Or Repent
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
Track Name: Gasoline Bath
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
Track Name: My Own King
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
Track Name: Fallen From Grace With My Heart
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
Track Name: Lost In Your Divinity
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
Track Name: Harmony Of Death
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
Track Name: Isolated In My Shell Of Madness
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
Track Name: Burden Of Life
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
