1. Hate Song

Two and twenty for the hole in you
A meat cleaver comb to run you through
Lethal gas will make you cough
A car crash scene to finish it off

Pain!
True definition
Truth is pain
Truly addicted

So don’t you worry about your earthly rest
I’ll dig the fucking hole myself

Pain!
Truly addicted
Life is pain
I am addicted
To this pain

Hate song!
(I live to bury you)

Stabbing and shooting and ripping the life out of you
I get off and I wish that you could too!
Open chest tickle will quiver your bones
Just lay back and chill, ‘cos I run this show

Pain!
Truly addicted
Life is pain
Life is infected
By this pain

Hate song!
(I live to bury you)

There’s no need to explain
You know who you are
I deliver the pain
I’m the baddest by far…

Die one hundred thousand times,
One million ways to…
Hate! Hate! Hate!
Hate! Hate! Hate!
Hate! Hate! Hate!

Hate song!
Lifelong!
Hate song!

2. Chasm

Relentless
I gather a mind of a kind unknown to all
Each revelation, knowledge earned through blood and sweat
My scars are worn with pride
I count on no one but myself

Going down
Last call!
All amounts
To what you are!

Hopeless
Useless fucking mind trip drains your soul
Faceless names to rule your fate
No man shall hold me down
No man shall own what’s mine
(Ain’t no such thing as a free ride)

Going down
Last call!
All amounts
To what you are!

Going down
Last call!
All amounts
To what you are!

Reality bites
Jaws of life
Open wide
Time to die

What is a mind?
A terrible thing to fight
Now you see
What lives inside…

I bid my time
Judge, jury and executioner
An eye for an eye
A permanent measure to your lies

Christ smiles in Hell

Going down
Last call!
All amounts
To what you are!

3. In Vein

You and many are one alone
You seek through the heavens and under the stone
The words that I speak still left untold
For who’s there to listen when silence is gold

I come
From a place where no one goes
You know that
I won’t
Set eyes on another dawn
One last hit…

Seeing and hearing, breathing and being
Doubting and staggering, I fail to believe
The edges are torn, my life ripped to pieces
Shame, pain…
Now I leave it

I come
From a place where no one goes
You know that I won’t
Set eyes on another dawn
Fuck if I care…

Lay me down one last time
Caress the blade in my hand

If I shed my blood in vain
Could I rest forever?
Should I lay my soul to waste?
No one lives forever…

A candle it flickers before my eyes
I feel so at ease as I start to realise
No more frustration as the thought frees my mind
I blow out the candle, one last good bye…

I come from a place where no one goes
You know that I won’t
Set eyes on another dawn
Life slips away…

If I shed my blood in vain
Could I rest forever?
Should I lay my soul to waste?
No one lives forever…

4. Undead

Cold skin clings to my face
More dead than alive
Spend your days without a trace
Fed up with the lies

I’m one of the few undead
I’ve seen through the lies
Live life hanging by a thread
I’m evil undisguised

Cut the strings that tie you down
Refuse to play the clown
Bite every hand that feeds
Make sure society bleeds

I’m one of the few undead
I’ve seen through the lie
Life hanging by a thread
I’m evil undisguised…

Do you know how it feels
Staring down the barrel of a gun
Everyday more or less the same
Just wait ’til your days are done
Work your fingers to the bone
Grind your body underneath the stone
Stains of red flash across your back
Seize the power to return the attack…

I’ve seen through all the lies
I’m evil undisguised…

If you wonder what drove me insane
Take a look at my scars
They go deeper than the skin
So with a gun I’m back to win

I’m one of the few undead
I’ve seen through the lie
Life hanging by a thread
I’m evil undisguised…
Fuck

5. Choke Hold

You fucking maggots
Don’t crawl for me I’m not your friend
Spare me your bullshit
You animals with human eyes

With power
I constitute my norm
With hatred
I cleanse this putrid world

We are the dead
Rising!
Life slips away
Chokehold!

You fucking insects
Don’t talk to me, I’m not your friend
Spare me your bullshit
You animals with human eyes

With power
I constitute my norm
With hatred
I rule this blood dimmed world

We are the dead
Rising!
Life slips away
Chokehold!

Sad mortals you’re hollow
Your man-made god won’t save you
Don’t try to escape me
I will prevail

Transparent human life form
Barbed wire in your veins
Diseased and lifeless creatures
Now enter death!

6. Three Times

Self-defence or murder of first degree
Tell me who are you to pass judgement
Raise my hand in anger
A just cause, to pacify the aggressor at all cost

So what is the law?
When all else fails, there’s nothing left
Given a choice
Stand back or suffer the consequences

Three times
My fist came down

So what is the law?
When all else fails, there’s nothing left
Given a choice
Stand back or suffer the consequences right now

I refuse to be victimised
Or give your pathetic fucking power trip
You’re not looking to kill anyone
You just want to display how big and strong you are
Well, check again motherfucker!

Do you think that you’ll live forever?
I have no qualms about mortalising your arse!
Check again motherfucker!
You’re in the real world now
So how does that feel for a change?
How does it feel to be the victim?
Victim…
Victim…
Victim

Twisted indifference
Violence against violence

Destroy resistance
Violence against violence

Self-defence or murder at first degree
Tell me who are you to pass judgement?
Cold reality, suffer the ultimate truth
Die motherfucker!

So what is the law?
When all else fails, there’s nothing left
Given a choice
Stand back or suffer the consequences right now

Three times
Three times
My fist came down, down, down

7. Bullet Hole

Breaking in and entering
My will is the law
I feel the scent of innocence
And I know it’s all about to fall

Never repent or change
Never repent or change
Never submit or yield
Never submit or yield

Trespassing holy ground
Reveal your secrets
Unlock these private boundaries
I’ll grant you one more dream

Never repent or change
Never repent or change
Never submit or yield
Never submit or yield

I have an urge to kill
I have an urge to rise above my victim
To see their life blood fade away

I have an urge to feast upon the weak
You’re mine every goddamn time

Crowbar, my tool of trade
Duct-tape and a six inch switchblade
My love is a Stanley-knife
My love is the fear in your eyes

Never repent or change
Never repent or change
Never submit or yield
Never submit or yield

I have an urge to kill
I have an urge to rise above my victim
To see their life blood fade away

I have an urge to feast upon the weak
You’re mine every goddamn time

You think you’re safe in your suburban dreamscape
Well, I could change all that…
I bide my time…
You’re such sweet meat…

I enter
You’re screaming
One gunshot
You’re bleeding
Dead silence
Relieves me
You’re open wide
To see me…

Never repent or change
Never submit or yield

I have an urge to kill
I have an urge to rise above my victim
To see their life blood fade away

I have an urge to feast upon the weak
You’re mine every goddamn time

8. Now You Know

One last try
Unfinished promise
Reach down deep inside

I give up the day I die
At least this pains mine!

We all die!
You and I!
Live a life
Or live a lie!

No retreat, no giving in
No spiritual surrender

Face the facts
Your life is pain
You’re lost inside your mind

We all die!
You and I!
Live a life
Or live a lie!

So now you know
Life’s lesson has taught me well
I have no hopes

Worn down
Broken and beat by society’s lies
New pride found in the struggle of your survival

We all die!
You and I!
Live a life
Or live a lie!

So now you know
Life’s lesson has taught me well
I have no hopes

Facing yourself
Realise that you’re nothing
Through the eyes of despair
A new fire rises

Life lived uncompared
You set your own standards
In one final statement
Do what thou wilt!

So now you know
Life’s lesson has taught me well
I have no hope…

Demon seed
Rise in me!
Rise in me!

9. Shattered

Stare at my reflection
A face to me shown unknown
Cleanse with perfection
No man shall stop the seeds I’ve sown

You see me crawl, but that’s not true
I’m just a step away from you

I feel my energy rising
Shatter me
Who shatter dares…

Don’t trust your eyesight
It will deceive your every glance at me
I feel no sorrow
Kill like there’s no tomorrow

You see me crawl, but that’s not true
I’m just a step away from you

I feel my energy rising
No way to keep this fury controlled

My hand shakes with anger
Stare unto me as I shatter your soul..

Shattered..

Goat’s head
Dead eyes
No reconcile

Submit to none
I am divine

Shattered
Shattered…

You call me evil
I’m but the instrument of the Lord
You call it senseless
I see a need to cleanse this putrid world

You see me crawl, but that’s not true
I’m just a step away from you

I feel my energy rising
No way to keep this fury controlled

My hand shakes with anger
Your life…
Shattered

10. Soul Fracture

Darkness, closing in on this detestable domain.
Bound and gagged, another soul that cannot take this strain.
Eyes still see, but don’t want to see this ultimate misery.
Take my life! Ease my pain! Bring me to my knees.

Living on the edge on insanity
Falling into despair
Force fed with horror with
Now submit to the region of dead

Pain inflicted upon my fractured soul
No hope!
I’m paralysed!

Spears of death, pierce my soul, my integrity is stained
Seeds of death, growing in my mind, my fate seems preordained

Living on the edge on insanity
Falling into despair
Force fed with horror with
Now submit to the region of dead

Pain inflicted upon my fractured soul
Not dead!
I will survive!

Pain inflicted upon my fractured soul
No hope!
I’m paralysed!

Fractured soul!

Darkness, closing in on this detestable domain
Beaten, tormented and fractured I cannot take this strain
Eyes still see, but don’t want to see this ultimate misery
Take my life!
Ease my pain!
Bring me to my knees

Living on the edge on insanity
Falling into despair
Force fed with horror with
Now submit to the region of dead

Pain inflicted upon my fractured soul
No hope!
I’m paralysed!

Pain inflicted upon my fractured soul
Not dead!
I will survive!

11. Blood Rust

Stale drops of inferior taste
Handed down just to lay to waste
Foul scent of a dream gone bad
Die the death that he never had

I’ve seen the flaming sights
I’ve walked that dreaded mile
Religious fragmentation
I gasp another line

So be it
This place turns to dust
So be it
Our blood turns to rust…

I see the world as gone…
Bring the pain!
I see the world as gone

Epidemic spreads across the land
To every place and into every man
The solution lost for all
Betrayed and broken

Domestic intervention may stop it for a while
Concealed intentions
Our code they mastermind

So be it
This place turns to dust
So be it
Our blood turns to rust…

I see the world as gone…
Bring the pain!
I see the world as gone…

I see the world as gone…

12. Forensick

At night I listen to the sound of the animals
I understand now that there are no limits to what you are capable of
You don’t even see it yourselves
And the news anchor on the TV set talks in a neutral voice
About rape, murder and this week’s weather without change of tone
It seems that nothing matters as we close in on the turn of the millennium
Violence and commercial breaks has become the opium that used to be religion
Fuck you, mankind
You’re so ugly, so vain

The language of brutality is all you seem to understand
Bloodlust as long as it’s someone elses blood
To fuck, suck, eat and shit
Breeding has turned into a pastime
Death as recreation…

You are no better than a pack of hyenas
The sight and smell of someone else’s pain and misery makes you feel good
Ensuring one more day in safety
Decimating the odds that you or someone you love is going to get hurt
Well don’t fucking fool yourself, you’re not safe, not in this world
All you are is collateral damage, presumptive headlines
Expendable meat for the media hounds
Statistics and forensic reports for some brainless fuck to drool over on the internet

You are royally fucked
