Track Name: The Illness Of Mind
Suffering and pain
That comes from my brain
Enclosing in my corpse
What remains of my life

I don’t know who you are

I don’t know who I am

Maybe a bad angel

Or maybe an honest man

It invades / INVADES ME / into interior

It destroys / DESTROYS ME / all around outside

It consumes / CONSUMES ME / consumes me everyday
What happens to me?
The illness of mind

Everything is confused in my head

I won’t cry, Noooo, I won’t cry

What’s this chaos that reigns in my head?
I won’t cry, Noooo, I won’t cry

Where do I go?
Everything looks the same

What do I find?
Nothing... It makes me blind

Killing me, killing me
Invades me
Consumes me, consumes me
Destroys me
Track Name: Sinners
Scientists don’t always have the right answer

No more than some preachers are evil sinners
No matter which clan you belong to

Nobody will enlighten you


They fight for Faith and the divine Act
Fighting against all rational facts
Stand up in the name of the Father and Son
Holy Spirit… Shit! Holy Bitch, Amen!

SEVEN DEADLY SINS… FUCK YOU PREACHERS!
FUCK YOUR MEDICINE… FUCK YOU LIARS!

E=MC2 is the solution

Nothing is created, nothing is lost

But according to all religions
God created the human race

KILLED BY PILLS AND MEDICATION
BRAINWASHED BY SCIENCE AND RELIGION
THEY ARE SINNERS
THEY’RE GREEDY ON AND ON
MOTHERFUCKERS
BLEEDING BELIEVERS

THEY BRAINWASH THE BELIEVER

PHARMACEUTIC
GREEDY ON AND ON
NOOOOO!
THE VATICAN
GREEDY ON AND ON

THEY BRAINWASH THE BELIEVER

Give us our daily bread
Our daily medication
Holy Mary Bitch
Pray for us sinners

WE ARE SINNERS
WE ARE SINNERS
WE ARE SINNERS
BRAINWASHED SOLDIERS
Track Name: Voices
Oh NOOOOO!

The night is endless, vermin overwhelms my bed
Morbid imagination, unreal voices in my head
White walls around me… I cannot see the exit
Voices invade me, voices impose all limits

Welcome to my world, my reality
This is my world, a paranoid story

EVERYBODY
AGAINST ME
EVERYBODY
OUT OF MY REALITY

Oh NO! Oh NO! Oh NO!
What happens to me now?
Oh NO! Oh NO!
I can't stop breathing
Stop them from saying anything!

STOP THEM FROM SAYING ANYTHING!

What are these lost visions alone in my prison?
So could they be the fruit of my imagination?
I’m always afraid, no one to hold my hand
The night’s not over yet and I should remain silent

Dying by inches, voices ruined my life
Torture me for each hour spending my time to fight
Welcome to my world, my reality
Welcome to my world, paranoid story

Controlled by evil ways flowing in my veins
I remain silent because my efforts were in vain
Track Name: Look At Me
You talk about the future and swear it will be better
But I know it's worse, it’s a bottomless pit
And as the days go on, the more one comes close
But you watch us sink... You just don’t care!

LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME!
CONSTANTLY LIE
CONCEAL AND HIDE

Ready to fight, overthrow the oppressors
Politician is a job, please don't act like an actress
Accumulated hatred... Too much distress!
It’s about to explode as a cloud filled with blood

THE POWER TO KILL
CORRUPTION TO BILL
GOVERNMENT
STAY AWAY FROM ME

Then go back down!
Move closer to the herd
Look at what you’ve left!
Obedient herd like children

Then go back down!
Move closer to pigs and cows
Look at what you’ve left!
A disciplinary crowd


STAY AWAY FROM ME
STRIKES! RIOTS!

STAY AWAY FROM...
CIVIL WAR!
CHAOS!
Track Name: Rise Up
Demons have done it well
Killing every human cell
I’m lost in the darkness
They give a sense to my distress

Angels were terrified
They couldn’t stop the demon’s lies
Living in this blackness
Fighting against all this madness

Demons have done it well
Killing every human cell
Darkness power kills me
I’ll leave my thoughts to be free

Within my angel’s light
They leave a power in me to fight
And now begins a new time
Overcome my demons to shine

RISE UP
It’s time to fight
Join the war
Right now!

RISE UP
Overnight
Kill ‘em all
Right now!

RISE UP
Save your soul
Join the war
Right now!

RISE UP
Take control
Kill ‘em all
Right now!

Stand up... Stand up to fight
Let’s take the moment and break the ice
Stand up... Bring back the force
You’re not alone, so join the war!

“Hi, I’m Satan the king of evil
I could kill you in a shorter time
But you'll suffer slowly in HELL!”

Hear a voice say “KILL”, “Hurt to be the master”
The spirits of evil are loaded with terror
The reign of ugliness, in a majestic splendor

SOULS FROM HELL
SOULS FROM HELL
SOULS FROM HELL
HELL!

Hear a voice say “KILL”, “Hurt to be the master”
All the bloodthirsty guided by the demon
Increase their bloody reign without suspicion
Track Name: Bloodshed
How long?!
How long will I be able to contain my rage?
How long can I live without bloodshed?

Shapeless masses walking down the street
They're all my enemies
These bodies have faces that seem to fade
They’re all so ugly

With a dev'lish smile in my eyes
I taste the blood on my blade
Bloodshed! Bloodshed!
I’m in hate... ENRAGED!

Their existence is their ugliness
And creates my illness
Would it not be better to destroy each of them?
Rather than letting die our land

TRY TO ESCAPE
RELEASE MY RAGE
WELCOME TO YOUR...
YOUR OWN CARNAGE
DIE!

Fresh human flesh brutally slaughtered
A pile of corpses stacked one on one
The blade of my knife shines a glowing color
The last survivors are now delivered

Open your eyes I can’t control my rage
Consequences of the grim reaper’s bloodshed

‘CAUSE I’m in hate AND ENRAGED!
Track Name: Heartquake
No one really needs to know what's happened between us
No one tries to do better than that to understand you and me...
There’s nothing to understand

I just hope you will give me the day I waited on and on
'Cause in my life you're the one I can trust without any doubt...
We've to solve our differences

So hard to take me in your arms

Rain always hides
All these tears in my eyes
All these tears in my...

Soul dies, thunder cries
The time is passing by
She's gone, so let me die

I had to sing a song and you just had to listen in silence
"HEARTQUAKE" through the words I used to remember you by the way...
Be stronger than everything

To preserve myself, stay away from our sad memories
It hurts me so much, never wished to see you go away...
Never wished to see you downed

Time ran by so fast and we didn’t take
Enough
Care of us
Soulmates!

One thing I know for sure
I'll come into your dreams
tell you the reason why...
Why I'm passed away

I know the end is coming soon
I see it straight ahead
I hope you'll never forget me
I'll never be far away
Track Name: Son Of Man
Don’t waste time waiting for the right moment

Who immerses my soul in eternal vice?

As a quest for self beyond any roads

Without anyone to take me by the hand

I sank into the shadows like a boat in the sea

Guided by these angels who took me to hell

Brothers and sisters, my new family

Becoming the son of man was my destiny

I AM THE SON OF MAN
FUTURE IS IN MY HANDS
I AM THE SON OF MAN
VULTURE UNTIL THE END

I’m the son of man, impure and unstable
Now ready to fill the cemetery
I'm the knight of evil, an angel of death
I will bring your soul in my sanctuary

Nothing has meaning for me or value to my eyes
My hands are dirty by the blood of victims
My white wings are torn, golden halo is gone
When you'll cross my way, implore me "the son of Man"

MASTER // FIRE
MASTER // FIRE

SON OF MAN
MASTER OF FIRE
ANGEL OF DEATH
TOOK ME TO HELL
KNIGHT OF EVIL
READY TO BRING YOUR DESTINY IN MY SANCTUARY
Track Name: I Created A Monster
FORGIVE ME
For having created the monster you are
FORGIVE ME

I'm confined with a delirious insomnia
Narcissistic eternal, absence of insight

It pushed me to commit the worst of heinous crimes

Indecency of death to a stolen corpse

Rising from...
Rising from the dead!

HEY! HEY!
HEARTLESS
Look around, look around
I created a monster

HEY!
Is there something wrong with me?
If I can't stop all these thoughts
Something's really wrong with me

HEY! HEY!
RUTHLESS
Look around, look around
I created a monster

HEY!
Is there something wrong with me?
Morbid thoughts run through my head
Something's really wrong with me

Scraps of flesh make me shiver

Storm breaks out, you can give life and take it yet again

A beating heart is nothing more than a clock

A fantasy out of shadows like nightmares

Our human side seems rotten

Stitches of life connects your flesh
Your human side NOW DISAPPEARED
PREPARE YOURSELF, YOU'LL BE MY SLAVE

My crime is nothing more than to give you life, monster!
Learn to walk and talk, buy your humanity

Storm breaks out, discover your ugliness 

Your words, your voice, your look: The fruit of my wishes
Track Name: Fuck The Facts (feat. Patrick Martin / Reanimator)
Is this a murder?
Fucking reality shows
And all the media shit
Expose fake reality

I DON'T CARE
About politics... About culture
Fuck history... Fuck my country
I have always things to do

UNDER THE PRESSURE
Of highly trained elite soldiers
From media, all manipulators
IT DOESN'T MATTER

I WON'T CHANGE
Live everyday like it's the last
Want to be loved by everyone
It's only me, myself and I

DESPITE THE PRESSURE
I won't be involved in society
'Cause someone else already does for me
IT DOESN'T MATTER

Despite the reign of fascism
Despite the crisis!
Brainwashed by media systems
Politics and consumerism

FUCK THE FACTS
I WON'T CHANGE
IT DOESN'T MATTER
I DON'T CARE

Governments, politics
Federal or provincial
They spend their time stuffing us
We spend our time whining

The perfect oligarchy
Is a dictatorship
That would have the appearance
Of democracy

A prison without walls
Which all the prisoners
Wouldn't dream escaping
A system of slavery

I WON'T CHANGE ANYTHING!

FUCK THE FACTS
I WON'T CHANGE
IT DOESN'T MATTER
I DON'T CARE

SO FUCK THE FACTS!
Track Name: Black Flame Of Vengeance
Vengeance!

Black Flame
Black Flame burns in me
Black Flame
Consumes all my soul

Gradually darkens me
Plunges me into the night
Without the flame I can't fight

Without it I can't survive

It’s not 'cause I have two white wings
That makes me so innocent
Everything that surrounds us
Is full of false pretences

Black Flame
Black Flame protects me
From me
From my weaknesses

Release all my rage
Devilish carnage
NO PITY, NO CHANCE
BLACK FLAME OF VENGEANCE

Black flame
Black flame of vengeance
Flamme of violence
Black flame of vengeance

RELEASING THE BEAST IN ME

RELEASING THE BEAST IN ME
THE BEAST IN ME!

Blood flowing from your veins
Substance that puts me in trance
In the dim light of the night
I stay away from the light

Black Flame
Black Flame is the force
Black Flame
Justifies my vengeance

Watch the black flame
In my eyes, he's coming
Watch yourself, you will die
Violence and revenge
