1. The City in the Sea (7:33)
Lo! Death has reared himself a throne, In a strange city lying alone.
Lo! a strange town, lying alone Death has reared himself a throne.
Far down in the west, Where the good, bad, worst and best have gone to their eternal rest
There, shrines and towers, Death has reared himself a throne.
Time eaten towers that tremble not, resemble nothing, nothing that is ours. Down, down in that town, shall settle hence: Hell, rising from its throne, no earthly moans, shall do it reverance.
No rays from heaven coming down, On the long night time of that town, But light from out lurid sea, Streams up the turrets silently, Gleams up the pinnacles for and free. Up domes - up spires - up kingly halls, Up fanes - up Babylon-like walls.
No swellings tell that winds may be, Upon some far off happy seas. No heavings hint that winds have been. On seas less hideously serene. But lo, a stir is in the air! The wave-there is a movement there. As if the towers had thrust aside, In slightly sinking, the dull tide; Aquiescently beneath the sky, the melancholy waters lie. The waves have now a redder glow. The hours are breathing faint and low. And when, amid no earthly moans, Down, down in that town shall settle hence, Hell, rising from a thousand thrones, shall do it reverence.
Down, down in that town, shall settle hence, Hell, rising from its throne, no earthly moans, Shall do it reverence.
There open fanes and graping graves. Yawn level with the luminous waves. But not the rices there that lie, In each idol's diamond eye. Not gaily-jewelled dead. Tempt the waters from their bed. So blend the turrets, shadows there. That all seem pendulous in air. While from a tower in the town, death looks down. But lo, a stir is in the air! The waved now have a redder glow. The hours are breathing faint and low. And when amid no earthly moans, Down, down in that town, shall settle hence Hell, rising from a thousand thrones, shall do it reverence.
Far down within the dim West. Where the good and bad the, The worst and the best - Have gone to their eternal rest. Waves have now - A red glow - Hours breathe low - No men moan
2. Dead Serious & Highly Professional (1:28)
You cannot make me feel guilty
I dont give a shit about respect
I wont join your moral masturbation
Im the prodigal son gone off the tracks
You cannot make me feel sorry
I dont give a shit about your pride
Im the cat piss on your carpet
The last crushing thought before you die

Dont fit in your picture
Dont fit in your world
Dont match all the lies you feed your kids

Feel no loyalty
This deal was made without me
Sure i never signed it
Your contracts dont apply to me

I'll fuck your dog
Do you still want to get along with me
I'll rape your daughter
Over the payment of asmall fee
I'll fuck your dog
Do you still want to get along with me
I'll rape your daughter
How much would you pay?
3. Austerity (9:40)
Pouring whiskey in dried-out bodies
Coarsely hewn by wood and love
Deep inside them smolders slowly
Thick as yeast, green bitterness
Helpless, their eyes are blind
And all their thoughts are simple
Their ears are deaf
And all their songs are trivial
Their loves have gone sour
And all their looks are vacant
Their food is foul
The art they make lacks the challenge
All their minds are empty
All their thoughts are simple
All their songs and books are trivial
All their ears are deaf
Birds who once flew with passion
Now they're easily caught with bare hands
Locked in cages, learning their lessons
Bullets for the already-dead
Tasteless, our tongues are dumb
And all our speeches are hollow
Our minds are numb
And all our books are hollow
Our lobes are sour
And all our looks are vacant
Our food is foul
The art we make lacks the challenge
All our minds are empty
All our thoughts are simple
All our songs and books are trivial
All our looks are vacant
Birds who once flew with passion
Can easily be caught with bare hands
Locked in cages, learning their lessons
Bullets for the already-dead
Can you still see
The stars
The Sky
Then layers of grey?
They're fading away...
Can you still see the stars?
It's hard to think of the ocean
With the sweet stench of piss in your hair
Morning air still invades every wallpaper cell
Year after year after year
All these years those walls were empty
Curtains yellowed, now white of mold
Lardy plaster, the paint is peeling
From the ashtray: swathes of blue smoke
Corrosive waters
Black rain falls the seventh time
Unyielding minds of coal
Jaws open wide
They changed the beds
Yearly white sheets weeping like shrouds
This is the chamber where their god spent his final hour
Can you still the stars through layers of grey
Or have the city lights taken their place?
The stars are fading away
away
away
away
Eyes leap at the bait
We march in circles under Jupiter's sway
Eyes fall prey to the cheat
One more surrender and we'll suffer defeat
4. Killing the Flies (7:14)
Air filled with sand lashing in my face
I can't see you fifteen feet away
I can hear you somewhere in the distance
I have lost you
The air is filled with sand
Eroding my skin I can smell you in the air I'm breathing
I can feel you everytime I'm falling
I can taste you
You're the sand I'm eating
I can't kill you
The air is filled with sand
Eroding my skin
All trees cast their leaves when you're around
All colors grow pale, all tones lose their sound
Air filled with sand
It's eroding my skin
All wheels stop turning
Now take the night-bus and begin all over again
Some things fade faster than you would believe
Some memories sway your thoughts for a while
Yet some might be etched into your skull so deeply they'll never grow pale
Sliding deeper and deeper into disaster
Don't want you to see the state I'm in
Where do I end, where do you begin?
Air filled with sand
It's eroding my skin
All wheels stop turning
Now take the night-bus and begin all over again
Sliding deeper and deeper into disaster
I'm on the speed-ramp going faster and faster...
Lets stay in bed today
The sun ain't shining anyway
Completely knocked out, unable to move
Dwelling in daydreams, I'm closer
I'm closer to you
I enwrap myself in black sheets
To match the sky
I no longer want to see
The bitterness in your eyes
You start killing the flies
You start killing the flies
This is the imperative of devotion:
A command to consistent actions
To defend our most heartfelt convictions
Against attempts of self-protection
To cut them down to size of reason
What we feel is true
I can't abandon you
I lost something forever in you
It all breeds only pain though I can't discard it
Can't rid of myself of you without betraying my heart
5. Une Saison En Enfer (4:58)
Sick of the sun
Corroded by the rain
Stolen laurels in felted hair
Worn faces that have traveled a long way
Wet rags sticking to her body
Bruised skin and sleepless eyes
Grinning and cursing malevolent skies
Strolling through hells
Whipped through heaven
Flirting with venomous snakes
Raping angels
Strolling through hells
Whipped through heaven
Dancing on desolate streets
When the skies rip open
Forgot his youth, but never her love
Forgot all his plans with life
Forgot the roof, but not the sky above
Mending their clothes
Licking their wounds
Scratches from the corals on their backs
Love bites from the kisses of shark attacks
Strolling through hells
Whipped through heaven
Flirting with venomous snakes
Raping angels
Strolling through hells
Whipped through heaven
Dancing on desolate streets
When the skies rip open
You that were banned from heaven and hell
Murderers that have suffered great pains
Searching in oceans of absinthe
The land where it is better to live
Black clouds pour their acid load on spiteful unbowed heads
And they are spitting it back
6. Necrobabes.com (2:14)
You're my fetish, my favorite toy
Pierced with needles, im sure you'll enjoy
Caged and hogtied, spanked and caned
I'll always savor your grace in chains

I will flog you to death can you feel the thrill
I will make you eat shit and control your will
I'm the master of the needle in your clit
There's no easy way out, if you faint ill get you back

Mousetraps hanging from your nipples
Saliva sliding down your chin
Thumbtacks under your tortured knees
The pain wont end, you'll never win

I will flog you to death can you feel the thrill
I will make you eat shit and control your will
Since i cannot own you, i just want to kill
I will hang you naked and watch your face go blue
7. One With the Ocean (2:35)
Let them carry me away
To any place that they have chosen for me
One day I become the stream
The stream that flows to the ocean
The moment of peace
Right before drowning
The final release when I'm becoming one with the sea
Whatever you do, you won't be saved
Whatever you hope,. its an illusion
Cause happiness can't be held in place
There are no one-time-solve-all solutions
There is no end
As far as I see
There is no future
There's only now
Just you and me... one with the ocean
I have been searching all around the globe
For a secret gate out of this world
Only to find there's no such place
The only peace I find is in constant change
I have been searching all around the globe
For a secret gate
Out of this world
Out of the cold
Only to find there's no such gate
8. Swoon (5:00)
Mild rays of the sun will burn your eyes
After dwelling in darkness for the rest of your life
Mild rays of the sun will burn your eyes
After dwelling in darkness
Walking out of this cave
This forlorn place that I used to call mine
Now daylight burns my eyes
The earth is shaking
Times are changing
The Clock is ticking
Even down here we won't be secure
The ceiling crumbles
Over my warped head
Giving way to broad daylight
Am I already dead?
Mild rays of the sun will burn your eyes
After dwelling in darkness
In this cave that I used to call mine
Searching for shelter
Right after the raid
Cover up your eyes: the most human trait
Don't want any change
I prefer to stall
Why can't we appreciate the gift of free fall
Freedom is what scares us most of all
We duck for cover in our shelters and caves
Freedom is what scares us most of all
And our horizon is never more than 2 steps away
I'm about to faint
So much to see
So much to hear
So much to dare
So much to share
So much to feel
So much to steal
So much to taste
No time to waste
My tongue is burning
My eyes are watering
My mind is turning
I'm overloaded
My limbs are aching
My ears are bleeding
System's collapsing
I'm about to faint
So much to do
So much to try
So much to lose
Before we die
So much to feel
So much to steal
So much to taste
No time to waste
My tongue is burning
My eyes are watering
System's collapsing
I'm about to faint
So much to feel
So much to steal
So much to taste
No time to waste
I'm about to FAINT!
So much to feel
So much to steal
So much to taste
No time to...
9. Queen of the Food-Chain (7:11)
You sure know the rules...to turn all heads the menu, for this is all you show. for this is all you have to offer as she grows pale and old. this color was never you own ever since you bought the security of control. with ten feet of soil on you chest to choke any whiff of animation. bury all risks forever. walk on bloodred sands. soaked with the grief of coveting docile hands. crushed by your own rocks: and this is what you draw upon, feast on the purity of decaying organic matter. no need to cut off her wings. your words lay like stones in her stomach. she takes evrything, she's the queen of the food-chain,the last one to starve, the first one to bleed to oblivion. she's the queen of the food-chain: the last one to starve. the first one to bleed to oblivion.
10. Inertia (5:10)
I enwrap myself in black sheets to match the sky
And you would do the same if you just opened your eyes
But lets stay like this for a while
Let's just keep silent and immobile
Enjoy the pleasure of dying daylight
The cold kiss of a desert night
Out here on my own is where I feel....
Where I feel most at home
I'm stuck in between your flesh and my bones
I embrace the gift of dying daylight
The cold kiss of a desert night
I enwrap myself in black sheets to become one with the sky
And you would do just the same if you opened your eyes.
