Submitted by level 록스타
1. The Forging (0:59)
2. Heaven's Descent (3:41)
Arrogance is not strength!
There is no grace in apathy.

In the veil of stasis divine, you preach obsessive concealment.
Heads held high in falsest pride, steadfast in the storm of truth.

There is a fury that bears your name.
A call to break this vow of shame.
This is your judgement, repent.
Heaven's descent.

You follow the bygone belief that time erases guilt.
The higher you place yourself, the deeper you fall.

There is a fury that bears your name.
A call to break this vow of shame.
This is your judgement, repent.
Heaven's descent.

Those who turned to you for guidance, received the seed of woe.
A gift from the core of filth, how does it feel to murder a soul?

There is a fury that bears your name.
A call to break this vow of shame.
This is your judgement, repent.
Heaven's descent.

A waning light, a slow descent.
3. In Defiance (3:14)
Resignation will claw your thoughts, don't give it room to breathe.
Fortitude conquers, hesitation enslaves.

Resignation will claw your thoughts, don't give it room to breathe.
Every journey starts with the first step.
Fortitude conquers, hesitation enslaves.

The daring will blaze the trail, for the openminded to follow.
The insurmountable, nothing but a stepping stone.

Don't give in to the fears that loom, in defiance of your void.
Exhaustion will wear your soul, let it never prevail.

Some will fall to your left and right, yearning for relief.

Starving for relief.

Betrayed by fear, torn by the inner throes, cathartic surge, prosperity.

Don't give in to the fears that loom, in defiance of your void.
Exhaustion will wear your soul, let it never prevail.

Some will fall to your left and right, yearning for relief.

Starving for relief.
4. Eight Thousand Sorrows Deep (4:14)
(In July 1995, in the Bosnian town of Srebrenica, some 8000 Bosnian Muslims were systematically deported and killed by units of the Army of Republika Srpska.
This genocide is considered to be the largest mass murder on European soil since the end of World War II.
Due to bureaucratic errors and political concerns, no significant military action was taken by the UN to protect victims, leaving them at the mercy of their executioners.
The number of victims to this day is estimated to be 8372.)

It is begun, we are become the vengeance.
Awoken by a call to shed the blood of generations.

Invoke the cleansing, the dawn of a new mourning.
Bring forth the lasting scars, save your sentiment for the extinct.

Genocide, a human theme.
Redemption, a shallow dream?

Devastation gathers, drench this soil with tears.
Humanity at zero.

Remorse, shattered.
The conscience wronged.
Let the risen speak for the fallen.

We dig compassion's grave, eight thousand sorrows deep.

Invoke the cleansing, the dawn of a new mourning.
Bring forth the lasting scars, save your sentiment for the extinct.

Genocide, a human theme.
Redemption, a shallow dream?

Evolution's bloodstained crown shall be ours to keep.
We dig compassion's grave, eight thousand sorrows deep.

Devastation gathers, drench this soil with tears.
Humanity at zero.
5. Arise Black Vengeance (3:02)
Arise Black Vengeance, to revenge of suicide.

Harpoons of avarice piercing your black skin.
Draining your blackening veins, a wound refusing to heal.

Refusing to heal.

Abysmal martyrium, bleeding of blackest blood.
Deepwater pandemonium for Horizons of growth.

A descent into the depths of risk to quench our growing thirst.

You can kill your conscience, but you can't kill your guilt.
You can fuel our hunger, but you can't still your guilt.

Still your guilt.

Draining on your blood until you've bled white.
Denying the end of supply.

Arise Black Vengeance, to revenge of suicide.

Abysmal martyrium, bleeding of blackest blood.
Deepwater pandemonium for Horizons of growth.

Horizons of growth.

This dust was once man.
6. Rubikon (2:50)
Through the alchemy of fire,
braving the Rubicon.
Through the alchemy of fire,
reaching beyond, braving despair.

Every time the walls are closing in,
you choose to grow or shrink.
Every challenge you reject with fear,
makes your pride and spirits disappear.

Fear and doubt have gone,
strength and weakness melt into one.
This turmoil I will harness,
this drought I will stand.

Through the alchemy of fire,
braving the Rubicon.
Through the alchemy of fire,
reaching beyond, braving despair.

Upon barren soil,
I'll build my throne.
No vast kingdom,
a solid ground.

Praising freedom in a cage that is myself,
but who is not a slave?
When you think yourself a victim,
there will never be salvation.

Every time the walls are closing in,
you choose to grow or shrink.
Every challenge you reject with fear,
makes your pride and spirits disappear.
7. Sirens of Black (4:31)
On my path to self-destruction, I passed a source of hope and on fear and hatred I choked.
On my path to isolation, I walked the fields of nowhere.
In a valley of false salvation, I breathed despair!

If you aim for the source, you must swim against the grain.

On my path to self-illusion, I bowed to standards and from the truth within I fled.
On my path to self-surrender, I denied the I.
Without teeth or spine I tried to survive.

Sirens of Black.
Evoke the abyss from its fathomless depth.
Benighted we stand.
A spectre of fear and lies in our hands.

From carpets of unbroken glass, Phoenix will never arise.

If you aim for the source, you must swim against the grain.
What you have in you, you can't extract, only reconcile.

hat you have in you, you can't extract, only reconcile.

On my quest for peace of mind, I almost lost my anger and in a stream of cynic I float.

Sirens of Black.
Evoke the abyss from its fathomless depth.
Benighted we stand.
A spectre of fear and lies in our hands.
8. Certitude (2:50)
9. Exaltation (3:26)
(Inspired by the Anne Frank Diaries and the poem "Todesfuge" by Paul Celan)

See this my waning flame, thaw to a world of ice.
Light it in the faintest of moments.

I bestow upon you, this token of affection, for I am engulfed by the end.

I must be ashes.
They strike their violins darker as the final blackness nears.

I entrust these words to you.
My hope will bleed into these lines.
To form a silent song, to linger through the ages.

To form a silent song, to linger through the ages.

To be sung by the living.
To preserve, to praise, to mend.
The fragments of dignity.

Faced with the deep of deeps.
My spirit shines undaunted.

Spielt süßer den Tod, streicht dunkler die Geigen.
Wir schaufeln ein Grab in den Wolken, da liegt man nicht eng.

Play death more sweetly, scrape darker your strings.
We shovel a grave in the air, there you won't lie too cramped.

To be sung by the living.
To preserve, to praise, to mend.
The fragments of dignity.

I entrust these words to you, to form a silent song.

I entrust these words to you.
My hope will bleed into these lines.
To form a silent song, to linger through the ages.
10. Tyranny of Want (3:33)
We have unleashed a cold disease with a fragile core and an iron shell.
The masters have become the slaves, control deprived, we crave and crave.

Enmeshed in the machinery, knowing only one direction: Forward!

Crowning greed with a halo of need, no one foresees when everyone seeks.
The masters have become the slaves, control deprived, we crave and crave.

We have sacrificed the source to worship the stream.
The mind is obsolete where means are absolute.

A system to serve mankind, mankind to serve the system.
Closer and higher until the world's on fire.

We have sacrificed the source to worship the stream.
The mind is obsolete where means are absolute.

A system to serve mankind, mankind to serve the system.
Closer and higher until the world's on fire.

Until the world's on fire.
Until the world's on fire.
Until the world's on fire.
11. The Prophecy (3:37)
(Based on the movie "Das weiße Band" by Michael Haneke)

A barn on fire, a tortured child.
What has come for vengeance?
Who has blackened the light?
Pain-inflicted, they inflict their pain.
Born of obedience, oppression's reign.

They've become the prophecy of debt.
They've become the prophecy that wept.

Petrified, denied, enshrined.
Burdened with a ribbon that binds.
Petrified, denied, enshrined.
They've become the spawn for the eclipse.

A white path of virtue not to be left.
The light of innocence is shining black.
The purity vision, taught by brutality.
Disciples of order, slaves to the hierarchy.

A fierce and brutal mind is forged.
When infant hearts and souls are scorched.
A flame of vengeance killed the light.
The children, they came at night.

To the night of the hunters they unload their punishment.
On the altar of justice they seek revenge.

Can they reverse their pain?
They will return the stain!

They've become the spawn for the eclipse.
They've become the holocaust.

A fierce and brutal mind is forged.
When infant hearts and souls are scorched.
A flame of vengeance killed the light.
The children, they came at night.
12. And to Posterity a Plague (3:43)
And to Posterity we sent a Plague.
Creating destruction, forging decay.

Who will ever grant us absolution for the crimes we daily commit?
Who will wash free our hands from the blood that sticks with them?

The faceless screams of misery, the catalogue of pain, should make the stones weep.

You can't enlighten the mind without blackening your soul.

The faceless screams of misery, the catalogue of pain, should make the stones weep.

We should bear the fiercest grudge against the unjust.
Yet our wrath is choked.

And to Posterity we sent a Plague.
Creating destruction, forging decay.

This silence is false.
The silenced are falsed.

This silence is false.
The silenced are falsed.

You can't enlighten the mind without blackening your soul.

You can't enlighten the mind without blackening your soul.
