(8)
Submitted by level 록스타 (2017-08-01)
1. Defaced Deity (1:29)
2. Veracity (5:43)
Verse 1:

A black box full of heart-shaped pieces of paper
Is all that's left from you
Wretched remains of irreplaceable
Deliberately thrown away

The dead heart inside me scream for resurrection
Revive it one more time
I want my wintersun to shine again


Chorus:

New thoughts of failure rising
I kill the old ones every once in a while
I searched for love and security
But in the end I soon lost it all
Everything ...
Left alone to cry in hate and pain


Verse 2:

Deep inside me this selfishness kept breeding
For far too long
But still it's just not fear
To hear myself scream, "No one else!"

Now I wrapped this shell around me
But I still want to mourn for
More than a year of everything I needed
How can this year already be gone


Bridge:

Even meeting my dead end
There is nothing I repent
I must accept my sun has now set
But still there's nothing I regret
Apart from th end
I'm dying now


Chorus:

These thoughts of failure raising
I can not preventable myself from bleeding again
This search for love and security
will finally end in pain and misery
Everything is lost
Left to die alone in hate and pain
3. Grey The Fire That Still Burns In Our Eyes (4:19)
Verse 1:

Though nothing's changing
We still search for something to harness
Into the deepest cavern
Our dead bird's songs never rest


Chorus:

The Fire That Still Burns Grey In Our Eyes
Ashes from the pyre
Imprisoned but who denies


Lead: Sheep Berger


Verse 2:

As we were solemn
Our incubator nurished our content
Now lying broken
Woefully we pay the eternal debt


Chorus:

The Fire That Still Burns Grey In Our Eyes
Ashes from the pyre
Imprisoned but who denies


Bridge:

And we were dancing ...
Oh you flames you dark ones in my hell
I open wide ...
And pour the bitter ness of life within


Chorus:

The Fire That Still Burns Grey In Our Eyes
Ashes from the pyre
Imprisoned but who denies
The Fire That Still Burns Grey In Our Eyes
4. Dynasty Without A Future (4:07)
Verse 1:

Staring on my riven self devoided
I realize I'm still a slave
Louring on this shattered state
I let the sun blind my eyes once again


Prechorus:

And I never ask why
Because I already know the answer


Chorus:

Before you take one last breath
Another breath of fresh air
You know your strength has left you
Was it really worth the share


Verse 2:

But something's missing where's your dignity
I find new chains every time I bleed
They rip my skin defile my flesh
Almost as your feeble embrace

The border is the bone
I'm abandone afforded by the sun's effort to give me warmth
But soon I realize
That light has never shone


Lead: Haimerl


Chorus:

Before you take one last breath
Another breath of fresh air
You know your strength has left you
Was it really worth the share

Now listen my child no one escapes
Not even well-off maggots like you
We to the same diseases
Now tell me what's your share
5. I, My Demon, His Wrath (3:55)
Verse 1:

When was the last time I slept?
I do not know
It seems this time
I'm crawling on the bones


Prechorus:

This boat's fate is to break swift
And sink asunder
And this time there's just no rock
To crawl under


Lead: Sheep Berger


Verse 2:

It's this distinct rage
Engulfed by fear
This monument of pain I want to sear

His screams direful
Rend fissures in my ears
Internal clocks are ticking
Loudly for a tear


Prechorus:

Emotional strain slithers merciless
My deceiver my eyes of glass


Chorus:

No I do not need your amendment
I do not depend on you
Please tell me you're the ned
I do not require aid
I'm not a part of you
I'm only suffering the truth

The circle that we run
Forever In Despair
Subsconciousness his lair
I conflict this disease
Conflict his disease
He can not be seized


Lead: Kötterl


Verse 3:

I reach out for myself
Hoping his grasp will become weak

As I gaze upon my arms
I see his the one I seek


Prechorus:

Now I perceive that my mind is distinct
Shall I give in or follow my instinct


Chorus:

No I do not need your amendment
I do not depend on you
Please tell me you're the ned
I do not require aid
I'm not a part of you
I'm only suffering the truth

The circle that we run
Forever In Despair
Subsconciousness his lair
I conflict this disease
Conflict his disease
He can not be seized
6. Bleeding Forevermore (3:36)
Verse 1:

I become aware of all these lies
Life is to blame for
Dirges always turn into futile cries
As I'm Bleeding Forever More


Prechorus:

Nothing to see Which could comfort me
Not even my pride remaining could win this fight bitterly cold


Verse 2:

Whensoever one anguish is over
The next begins
But much more Which intensity
And one way less to flee


Prechorus:

Dirges still turn into futile cries
As I am Bleeding Forever More


Chorus:

One step closer to edge of insanity
I joggle my prison bars with might and maim
I wonder if I will ever find the key belonging
And if I'll ever escape this mental chain


Lead: Sheep Berger


Verse 3:

Finally I try to continue and I succeed
For I begin to adore every sorrow
Now I resolve to heed
That this will not change tomorrow


Prechorus:

Dirges still turn into futile cries
As I am Bleeding Forever More


Chorus:

One step closer to edge of insanity
I joggle my prison bars with might and maim
I wonder if I will ever find the key belonging
And if I'll ever escape this mental chain
7. Beloved Sanctuary (4:58)
Verse 1:

Shouting that I serve you not
I torn you from your sleep
I hold your hand in dismay
Assuaging your desperate sight

We stare at the hills below
Into the azure of tonight
A crimson flash shoots through my eyes
And from within my demon cries


Chorus:

My burden is to shelter you
I preach to you to apprehend
That every teardrop on your face
Is not self-evident

Now my fulfillment is Achieved
I seize the day
You have lost all that you believed
My Beloved Sanctuary


Verse 2:

You grasp my hand we run away
Black clouds shape in the sky
The filthy blackness of your soul
And the sable in your eyes

Now tell me what you really need
Is it your precious god
Not even he bestows you heed
Open your eyes to see the fraud


Bridge:

Run faster run faster
I scream as you cry
Impostor impostor
I shout into the sky


Chorus:

My burden is to shelter you
I preach to you to apprehend
That every teardrop on your face
Is not self-evident

Now my fulfillment is Achieved
I seize the day
I remember how you were called
My Beloved Sanctuary


Leads: Schaferberger & Kötterl


Bridge:

Run faster run faster
I scream as you cry
Impostor impostor
I shout into the sky

Run faster run faster
I scream as you cry
Impostor impostor
I shout into the sky


Chorus:

My burden is to shelter you
I preach to you to apprehend
That every teardrop on your face
Is not self-evident

Now my fulfillment is Achieved
I seize the day
You have lost all that you believed
My Beloved Sanctuary
8. Of Father And Son (3:44)
Verse 1:

Look right into my eyes
Watch the blind man lock his soul
It's the silence I despise
Leaving a heart with one more hole

Look right into these eyes
Can you see the king of lies
Shutting up where he should speak
Where's the moment I still seek for


Prechorus:

Read my thoughts
And find your own


Chorus:

Shall we persist
In remaining silent
Oh father tell me
After all these years of irrelevance
Speak to me


Verse 2:

When you descended to what we are
To all the things that we've done wrong
To what we could have done so far
I held your hand as I wished to all along

The moment we broke the ice
Death started freezing it again
These few words just were not enough
To take this everlasting pain away


Prechorus:

You red my thoughts
And found your own


Chorus:

We did not persist
In remaining silent
Oh how I miss you
After all these years of blindness
You made me see
9. The Endless March (6:08)
-January 1942 -

Today I found my dearest friend ... dead
The face of an aged and tired you
While I covered his stomach still warm
With my frozen fingers
I finally and absolutely Realised
That this raging war is nothing but insanity

I write these words with tears in my eyes
As for now I know
They could be the last I leave to this world cursed
We failed to see through the web of lies
We failed to understand that there is nothing glorious about war
And now we have to pay ...


Verse 1:

Back then when things all fell into place
We got intoxicated by that's shady embrace
For the welfare of our rich
We took victory for granted
Just as we were told

Years went by and by now we are in doubt
In doubt of our charge across the lands
The dying we can not be of avail witt Possessed
For anyone


Prechorus:

The clock of war will prove
That hope is in vain but
Obliterated youth
How shall we bear up all the pain


Chorus:

We've marched on as the ones who still believed
Before our minds perceived
The downfall's closing in on us and
One by one the sun will set down on us
Our memories to dust
Our Farewell though'll be sung forevermore


Verse 2:

This war is a shortcut to the absolute demise
It's all unfolding before our eyes dying
The death of millions of fathers
The death of millions of sons
No longer will I care soon all be gone

Yet still forced to march on


Chorus:

We've marched on as the ones who still believed
Before our minds perceived
The downfall's closing in on us and
One by one the sun will set down on us
Our memories to dust
Our Farewell though'll be sung forevermore


Leads: Kötterl Berger & sheep


Chorus:

One by one the sun will set down on us
Our memories to dust
Our Farewell though'll be sung forevermore
One by one the sun will set down on us
Our memories to dust
Our Farewell though'll be sung forevermore
One by one the sun will set down on us
Our memories to dust
Our Farewell though'll be sung forevermore
One by one the sun will set down on us
Our memories to dust
Our Farewell though'll be sung forevermore

For our cause we sacrificed
For the cause we sacrificed
For a cause we sacrificed
For which cause we sacrificed
For nothing did we sacrifice ourselves
