Track Name: Between Dogs and Wolves
Between dogs and wolves
Before you shoot the sun
That’s bleeding from afar
Deciding that you are

An animal within
You shed your human skin
You dance when darkness falls
You answer when it calls

You come, obey, you kneel
And in return you feel
The power and the might
And you no longer fight the animal

Between dogs and wolves
Before you shoot the sun
That’s bleeding from afar
Deciding that you are

An animal within
You shed your human skin
You dance when darkness falls
You answer when it calls

You fucking animal
Track Name: Synchronised Breathing Exercise
This life, it comes to you
Or it's something you find
You can live it for a while
You can leave it behind

Where I'm going, I'm going deep
Place that I can't see
I can't take my love there with me
It can't follow me

The sure winter embrace
I'm too weak to run
To defend my place
What it wants is what it takes
And I understand it all
As it brands my face

This life it runs from you
It's just something you lose
Every day you're bleeding out
And time tears the wounds
Track Name: Abyss
The earth is haunted
By every sound
The air is thicker
Here on the ground

It's just the way it is
You are the way you are
Stare long into abyss
You know it reaches back

I want to come to you

I want to cross this loch
While it's still ice
And should my footing give
Please accept my sacrifice

It's just the way it is
You are the way you are
Stare long into abyss
You know it reaches back
Track Name: The Sea Hates Me
The sea hates me
Every wave I hit, it breaks me
I’m going down
To where you can’t see the sun

The glass cracks
The screen goes dead and black
Inhale the water
You never have to go back

Sink the boat, drown the captain
With the anchor at his feet
Inhale the water
Let it put you to sleep

Inhale the water
Let it put you to sleep

Something is here
In the silence, in the cold
I feel the hands that pull me deeper
To the bottom with my boat

That pull me deeper
To the bottom
With my boat
Track Name: I'm the Snake
I’m the snake
The blackest flame that’s burning cold
I’m a quiet river
Running down with blood

I was shot and drowned
I chose to disobey
I’m the snake, the wolf
The blackest fucking flame

I’m a grave made of stones
For a dusty pile of bones
Nothing less and nothing more
In the body of a whore
Track Name: Infinity Focus
Infinity focus
The darkness in your eyes
Trees growing underwater
As the broken surface cries

I'd do it all again for you

I tried to climb a peak
I stumbled all the way
Walked far enough to know
To call you just to say

I'd do it all again for you

The sky is no protection
The sun is the enemy
I'm stabbed to death by light of stars
I know that they can see

I'd do it all again for you
I'd do it all again
Track Name: Master of the Storm
The dragon walks
With the beast of the sea
I feed them my own blood
They whisper to me
The second coming’s now
The serpent is reborn
Turn your eyes to the horizon
To the master of the storm
And bear witness

He brings darkness
He brings flood
Is it raining crimson?
Are we covered in blood?
Oh god, and it’s a red that stains

His eyes sewn shut
His world absent of light
The mind is eternal
Too broken to fight
Too scattered among the ashes that fall
Like snow, light like feather
To bury us all

Take him now, that he’s weak
Judas’ grave is wide enough
Put him deep beneath our feet
Where the ground is dry and tough
Should he wake, he’ll be trapped
In a world that he began
There’s no god, there’s just dirt
Out of which arose a man like me

The giants walked until they fell
And the paradise turned into hell

I survived the night
And I slept through the day
When I opened my eyes
It was night again

As if the sun was never here
Track Name: Club Suicide
Height pulls down
Over the edge
Dead on the ground
Stepped off the ledge

Kill me and I'll owe you one
Hold your breath and aim the gun

Club suicide
Not for your eyes
Not for your stomach

Don't like looking at yourself
You have money
You need help
Everybody has a problem

Learn to rule and to behave
Everybody has a slave
Everybody has a problem

Club suicide
Not for your eyes
Not for your stomach

Kill me and I'll owe you one
Hold your breath and aim the gun
Track Name: House of Stone
My old house was made of mud
The water came
It washed off like blood

Now my house is made of wood
It serves me well
It serves me good

I don't want a house of stone
To be my grave
To keep my bones

In my old house I was burning wood
In this one I don't think I should
In my old house the words would burn
And I'd catch fire, in turn

I don't want a house of stone
To be my grave
To keep my bones
Track Name: The Asp
The serpent's final hour
It did not recognize
It launched itself at me
With fury in its eyes

It bit my hand
As I grabbed its head
It sunk its fangs deeper
As I choked it dead

I cut the head off
Cast the scum to burn
I let the fire consume it
So that it cannot return

Zatrzymalem jego skórę
Porzucilem swoją
Nie będę nosic blizny

Jestem wężem, królem
Najczarniejszym płomieniem
I najjaśniejszą gwiazdą

I'm the void that spawned the serpent
The abyss that end its rule
I had exiled all good reason
Like a blind man
Like a fool

Et quand l'eau se retira
Je vis des chiens sur la plage
Il n'y avait plus de mort et plus d'hiver
Et le soleil se leva à nouveau
