1.
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
2.
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

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
4.
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
5.
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
6.
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
7.
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

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
9.
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

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
