Praise the Loss Lyrics

4. Praise the Loss (7:05)
Track rating :  100 / 100       Votes :  1       [ ]
Strophe I: 

My body now feels different 
Has this single wish come true? 
Is the emptiness a dead end? 
Or just a new found point of view? 

I was a slave to the bloody apparatus 
That humans call a proof of life 
But I don't need this fucking offal 
No more failure to thrive 


I thought I'd die for love 
Now love is dead to me 
(For too long I've been)


Nailed to the cross 
Of my now defunct existence 
I praise the loss 
Of the ability to cherish or to care 

Strophe II: 

From now on I am empty 
And I've never felt this fulfilled 
Every weak spot that I ever had 
Now finally has been killed 

From now on I am empty 
And this is what makes me complete 
The hollowness inside my heart 
Is everything I need 


At this point there's nothing that I can't achieve 
For the burden of life which is love is no more 
One thing I know 
Life's a whore 
Pay the price and receive what you crave 

Pay! Pay the price! 
Receive! Whatever you crave! 

Leads: Schafberger/Kötterl/Haimerl


For too long I have been nailed to the cross 
Of my now defunct existence 
I praise the loss 
Of the ability to cherish or to care

Spoken Word I: 

Whoever says you need closeness or affection to survive should think again
I rid myself from this desire and therefore I am invincible

Choir I: 

Void life impending, it's the high road to tuin

Spoken Word II: 

Love always leads to pain 
There are no exceptions
I will forever be the master of my own destiny
And there is nothing and noone with the power to stand in my way
Not even you my dear....

Choir II: 

Vain time unending, it is your road to ruin
Dead life impending, this is your road to ruin
