Todessehnsucht Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. Todessehnsucht (3:48)
I feel like a falling leaf
Departed from my source of life
Dipping into the ground
To become one with the earth

Todessehnsucht- wo bleibt die Gerechtigkeit?
2. Godless Years (5:37)
Hot desire, staggering passion
Graving complection and pefection
Made us blind
Greed of completeness made us, man
To subject and vassales of ourselves
Presumpteous creatures
How narrow are you ?
Self-aggrandized, destructive individuals
The believing in yourself
Growing up to selfishness
Egoism discards moral and ethics

Godless years shall arise
Godless years are devined
We provoke the death
We're damned to die

Mass-corruption dominates
World of lies and of sin
Godless years
We all live in

Self-nominated gods
You're only god's image
Those who believe in eternal resignation
Await your final downfall

Godless years shall arise
Godless years are devined
We provoke the death
We're damned to die

Mass-corruption dominates
World of lies and of sin
Godless years
We all live in

Lost in megalomania, unclean human beings (are)
Drunken by blood
Having the force
To judge about life and death
Never prudent, always merciless

Kingdom of waste and poverty, unclean human beings
Thirst for power
Might and pride
Glitter and gold rape their intellect
Rejection is calling primitive instincts

Godless years shall arise
Godless years are devined
We provoke the death
We're damned to die

Mass-corruption dominates
World of lies and of sin
Godless years
We all live in

Infamous world, whore, called babylon
Godless years, death to us..... and fear !

Hot desire, staggering passion
Craving completion and perfection
Greed of completeness made us, man
To subjects and vassales
Of ourselves

How much you have
Glorified yourself
So much torment and sorrow you'll get
Horde of protical sons
Await your final downfall

Godless years shall arise
Godless years are devined
We provoke the death
We're damned to die

Mass-corruption dominates
World of lies and of sin
Godless years
We all live in

3. Unspoken Names (5:25)
(Listen to the unspoken names !)

I see the horror day by day
Only the sight shudders me
World fail me, confuse me
In there any explanation ?

I shall not find
One name or kind
What's behind

Forbidden thoughts
Keep me silent
Opress me

Every hour- every minute, every second

Conscience pangs
Heart beats
Mind rotates- endlessly

I feel the shock in my face
How worse is the human race ?
Words fail me, confuse me
Is there any explanation

Uncertainty
Spreads abroad
Makes me sick

Hidden truth
Face of death
Morbid conflict

Unintentional
Awful fate
Mental terror

Impose silence
Forced to be
Under control- by myself

War inside my head
Forbidden what should be sayed
Unspoken names

Twisted and obscure
Nothing less than more
Unspoken names

"No solution
Only thinking
Is not changing
Anything"

War of letters
Ends in madness
Call me coward
I'm a liar !

War inside my head
Forbidden what should be sayed
Unspoken names

Twisted and obscure
Nothing less than more
Unspoken names

I shall not find
One name or kind
What's behind

Forbidden thoughts
Keep me silent
Oppress me

Every hour- every minute- every second

Conscience pangs
Heart beats
Mind rotates- endlessly

Nothing less and more
Unspoken names
Nothing less and more
Unspoken names

4. Defiance (4:56)
I'm walking into opaque nothingless
No one can save my return
Predition made another disconsolated creation
Which is acting against it's "Free will"

Will- my only will is still alive
Pride- let me resist and survive
Hate- gives enormous strenght

Defiance

Pain- I feel so tired
Love- my love is dying
But- my dignity is unviolable

Defiance

Path- of uncertainty
Is- nutritive
For- a further existence

Unfathomable, ruthless world
I'm lost, I'm born into
Once the time will come
To accept the battle

"Since mankind's existence
There's an endless war
Between human beings"

Every night the same returning vision
My only foothold on the brink
The piteous fall of the "antagonist"
And finally I will win

Will- my only will is still alive
Pride- let me resist and survive
Hate- gives enormous strenght

Defiance

Eyes- like flames of fire
Fear- non of those things
Which- thou shall suffer

Defiance

Once again it's time for another grave
Another execution is done
Are violence and senseless actions
The human fate ?
Perfect bodies- imperfect brains

[Lead: Ræderer]
5. Triumph at Dawn (4:00)
You, my allies concentrate !
Power of nature- storm and typhoon
Wind and cyclone, tornado, storm tide
Surprise attack !

Triumph at dawn
When the world is still asleep
Triumph at dawn
Glorious victory

Glaring lightning strikes, thunder rolls
The deluge is raping the land
Ice and fire bring up the rear
United impact

Rising force
Irresistibly

Bowels of the earth break out
Erthquakes crush the ground
The whole land is bleeding
In fiery heat

We march to end years of depotism
Our banners cares dark colours in the sky
Never shall be the empire of sadness again
Conquer, dehumanize the only command

Triumph at dawn
Fall of tyranny
Triumph at dawn
Glorious victory

Morbid intelligence shall banned forever
Overthrown by superior strenght
Seizure of power frees garden mould
Spirit over power, force over mind

[Leads: Ræderer]
6. Introduction (1:32)
Somnium timoris
Desiderum praeteritum
Maestitia praesentiae

Iced winds blow through my hair
My fingers are cold
My blood is frozen
Our time will come
I will be there
7. Sky Turned Red (6:22)
An old weak, grey man on the hill
Alone, sad he looks down, down the vale

He remembers the old days, shadows of past
The old days, memories he's lost
He's searching for reasons, recalling the past
For reasons, fractive remains

He has before his eyes
As the sky turned red
Changed the world it's face

Naught was anymore like before
As the sky turned red
Fertile days were gone

Many moons raised and set since that time
Now he's afraid of the return
He has settled life once and for all

He looks at the ruins of nature
Mankind's work is done
Vermins stay behind the downfall
Weeds grow apace

Withered trees- degenerated
Desolated- tract of country
Storming clouds- Unnatural colour
Threatening, mystic phenomena

Birds flight away
With them our dreams
Years of destination
Took life away

Inactive all the time
Man's sense of guilt
Now bones like glass
He never can take measures

(Sky turned red)
The omen strikes again
(Sky turned red)
The back of beyond

He has before his eyes
As the sky turned red
Changed the world it's face

Naught was anymore like before
As the sky turned red
Fertile days were gone

[Lead: Ræderer]
[Lead: Scharf]
8. Necropolis (4:09)
Every night of my favor
Every night I'm gonna meet you
I love your coldness
Let me touch your deadly emptiness

Necropolis

Faded flowers
I like the smell of rotten beauty
Forsaken gravestone
Every morning I find myself lying on

Necropolis

Scene of horror- place of peace
Theatre of macabre- everlasting feast
Forbidden pleasure- my secret love
Wistful trauma- eternal resting place
Disembody lust- your body is dust
Blackened lady- womb of the dead

Darkness warms me
Dancing all night on the graves
My sweet 'tender'
One day I'll join you forever

Necropolis

[Lead: Scharf]
9. A Prison Called Earth (6:03)
(Worths, norms!)

I look in the mirror and what I can see is one face with abandoment
I can't hide myself and I'm not free, living in mental abesement

Imprison

The rising sun awakes gleams of hope, but who does trust them anymore?
A life in disillusion shows the truth of this gloomy glamour

Imprison

Wherever I walk on earth- a neverending search
My present is my past- my future hopeless
Live the dying world! - injustice
The vicious circle turns- impetuous
From child, adolescent, adult, age of death
Systematic clearence- disheartening experience
No time, no place- for a righteous change

No god, no preach could save my will to live
Death was and will be
All my dreams, all my wishes like a small heap of ashes
Emotions, feelings they are gone- being formed and educated by.....

.....A prison called earth
Your end is your birth- a prison called earth
Self-realization's death- a prison called earth

[Leads: Ræderer]
