To The End 04:48
If of darkness the sun was born Like its sister, the moon Then the womb of the mother Is also their tomb Cry with me, cry With fanatical ambition, death shadows creation It lets the last of the litter take the lead It pours from the sky, collects in the deep It lets every grand idea die in its sleep Cry with me, cry Tell me everything was better back when What wouldn’t you give to do it again? An anomaly of a second chance Falling straight into your hands What of after we're done dying? We only have one shot at this Should we fail because we try it Our debts will be erased We won’t be missed Retry, renew, suffer, no more Do you know what the future will bring? Retry, renew, suffer, let go I was wrong about everything And it ain't worth a fire It ain't worth a dime Good things die in their prime And it ain't worth a fire It ain't worth a dime Good things die in their prime

Last One Out 02:49
I dream the impossible Crawl in holes where horrors breed I dig deeper every time I dig until my nightmares bleed Night after fucking night The spiral’s repeating Vertigo, my old friend You're the push when I'm slipping Let's do it tonight A slow suicide Last one out Turns off the light 'Cause I can't carry my guilt So I drag it behind me What will become of this? We'll know when the angels find me They will offer confession To unburden my mind Say that all will be forgiven But I know God ain't that kind God takes no hostages And leaves no witnesses No child is blessed He's got no favourites No one can be forgiven And no curse reversed No burden be replaced By a mere second chance I say let's do it tonight A slow suicide Last one out Turns off the light I say let's do it tonight A slow suicide Last one out Turns off the light God takes no hostages And leaves no witnesses No child is blessed He's got no favourites No one can be forgiven And no curse reversed No burden be replaced By a mere second chance Come on Come on Come on

Tetrahedron 04:08
All the traitors They thought it prudent to agree To wear fascism In scorn of anarchy They said it's civilised It's better this way Get in line All must play Pick a side or fucking die The war is on The war on life 'Cause hell is paved with good intentions And helpful remarks Hell is full of thoughts and prayers And idle hands Great swords of retribution Are as long as they are bloody They bend before they break Like the mind before the body Liberation of man Cannot come from the divine And if philosophy is dead There's no ‘one truth’ to get behind Command the throne Tetrahedron To kill God is to kill fear
4.
Patina 06:12
This record is my grave But it isn't where I lay The needle is in place But the music doesn't play I couldn't last And neither will you If we're alone in this Then we're alone as two And I admire The men who never got old Men who had to die Men who dared to be bold And I admire Your heart I admire your heart Your heart Those who abandoned their vision Are left to wander the dark Blackness absolute Void in their hearts Now, virtuous men Who dared to persist Are grand sleeping statues Covered in birds, patina and shit You and me Let's put a deal in place I'll cut you once For each day that you waste Make it a sport An act of defiance Let's shed some blood It's in our talents A little house in the prairie A little spot in the cemetery You and me A deal in place A single cut For each day that you waste now
5.
Sunsets 03:54
Time shatters memories Like the camera was broken Moments of substance Moments of nothing Stitching together And piecing apart Sunsets that render Like pieces of art How can I sleep With a quiet mind How can I sleep while knowing That I don't have time I love you now as I did back then So go, if you must go You know, the train can't take us all I will take the long way home I'll walk through the fields Through the frozen roads Through the bitter frost Through the nighttime snow If you wait at the end Through hell I will go If love is a sickness This is my sickest day yet I'll spill my head and my heart out So that I'm here when I'm dead Stitching together And piecing apart All the sunsets that render Like pieces of art
6.
Strach 03:07
Rysuje się przez wzrok potem zaburzony Moim sądem jest słońce Ocenia mnie z każdej strony Ona nie wie że Ja już książke zamknąłem Z ostatniej strony Ostatnie słowa wchłonąłem I boję się I boję się I boję się I boję się Boję się, bo wiem Boję się, bo znam Ja z chęcią idę na stracenie Dawno temu odwróciłem się od prawdy Weryfikujesz, badasz mnie spojrzeniem Żywy cud, bo wiesz ze jestem martwy Za wszystko zapłacę Za żarty o śmierci Za przełykanie syfu Za dobre chęci Przede wszystkim za chęci Bo próbowałem Tylko z gwarancją wygranej Bo nic na tym świecie nie doceniałem A doceniany być chciałem Bo kradłem czas Bo byłem słaby Bo łamałem wszystkie zasady Bo byłem tchórzem Bo kłamałem I opuszczę świat gorszym niż zastałem Teraz, teraz Jedno cięcie i rozleję duszę I wiem że napewno to koniec I chodziaż raz zrobie co muszę Popłaczecie, zapomnicie
7.
Death Dogs 02:55
I'll stab you with the knife You left lodged in my back There's no room for forgiveness Not in this life Sleep with one eye open And stay in the light 'Cause I praise the shadows And walk the night alone I'm readying the graves For all of my friends For the end of a knife Is where friendship ends You know what doesn't kill you Will swing back to try Let's go motherfuckers I'm ready to die As if I don't know what's good for me Always try, suck and see The only way is death Death is the only way The dogs don't show up for nothing With no reason to stay Try me, try me That’s right Fuck you, bitch Try me, try me That’s right Fuck you, bitch Umrzeć każdy może Lecz nie każdy potrafi Do usranej śmierci Trzeba przecierać szlaki Pierwsza próba może niezadziałać Druga próba musi Trzeba celować tak Żeby nigdy nie wrócić Przekrzykiwać się z ciszą Rozmawiać z Bogiem I wyliczać przysługi Gdy mrok sie mnoży za progiem To kaliber koszmaru Proporcjonalny do życia Pluję z okna na śmierć Niech wie że jej nie unikam
8.
Esse non videri Esse non videri Esse non Esse non videri Esse non videri Esse non I calculate With zero empathy I want control To keep you close to me Esse non videri I'm still, not in inaction No one but me can admire My grand construction You'll get your turn To build, to burn You'll get your turn To build, to burn God couldn't do What I'll do to you All the tactile sensations Bleeding through God couldn't do The things I'll do to you All the tactile sensations Take everything I need My room to roam and to feed And I'll leave you with an exit wound Big enough so you bleed Out and through So you can see the light My blood is venom But try to bite Can do a lot when I'm pushed Even more when possessed See, you can hand me a gun And I will do the rest Driven by perpetual hate Inherited within I walk on angels charred like coal And fire walks with me I don't forget, I'm meticulous I planned my demise I'm lesser than equal In the saviour's eyes When you have it all You can only ask for less My body's empty of soul But you can fill it with dirt God couldn't do What I'll do to you All the tactile sensations Bleeding through God couldn't do The things I'll do to you All the tactile sensations Esse non videri Esse non videri Esse non Esse non videri Esse non videri Esse non You'll get your turn You'll get your turn
9.
If my mind is a kingdom Then where is the king? Who's making the noises And saying those things? And I want to be some And I want to be someone When all power fails When there is nothing else All we have is the nothing Echoes of the fruitless calls Decorate the empty walls It doesn't take a lot to be forgotten Don't follow me You won't make it The king isn't free, he's alone I'm futureproof I can take it Hell can wait for its son And if we knew the day That I'm never coming back We'd get high one last time And watch the sun set down on Prague Till then I'll love you as if they would Outlaw our love tomorrow Ink myself into you For all the hell to follow Till then I'll love you as if they would Outlaw our love tomorrow Ink myself into you For all the hell to follow Don't follow me You won't make it The king isn't free, he's alone I'm futureproof I can take it Hell can wait for its son

Gallow Hill 03:54
All that sleep cut short I'm going to reclaim it If I time it right Driving through the darkness I'm going to kill the lights The road will disappear And I will close my eyes To sweet relief To sweet demise Nihil verum nisi mors Nihil verum nisi mors I thought I was breathing on my own How many blows before you see a crack? If the pain goes, I'll truly be alone Did my silence paint a target on my back? Take all the lights in this room And point them in my direction I will still sit in the dark With no shadow, no reflection Only death never fails Immune to fatal and the tragic I'm stretched so fucking thin I'll disappear without magic Nihil verum nisi mors Nihil verum nisi mors Raz, dwa, trzy! Those who seek forgiveness Are no more pious than the crooked No more pious than the cursed Hills of gallows spitting death Hills of gallows spitting death No more! Depress until the ribs show Won't heal, no matter how slow And should I ever choose to let go I will always carry death I will always carry death
11.
You can't get closer to the end Than being in it All aligns with finality There's geometry within it They say that God Doesn't draw in straight lines Maybe he's a drunk An old man with shaking hands Or maybe not Now we're into the waters That were always forbidden This cold river, it separates The dead from the living There are doors out there That should never be opened There are plains of shade Old God has forgotten It got so cold, so cold I can't remember what it’s like To feel the warmth, the sun To bask in its light And is hell up above? In the endless pool of dark? Where sadness lasts forever? No, hell is in the heart Sitting on the same shoulder Whispering in the same ear The angel and the devil Say there's no hell to fear The angel and the devil They finally agree That the Bible and the money Come from the same tree When dirty deeds stay dirty The good expire too Sing "Say Hello 2 Heaven" And pray it'll happen for you It’s my jester's privilege now To drink from pools of disorder Not to cower, not to hide To sing "it’s over, it’s over, it’s over"
12.
Protostar 04:52
Death visits on the regular To maintain a reputation To remind us who we are To re-centre our attention There are things in you that I can break That hurt more than the heart Life's as dull as it can fucking get When you're the brightest star The loyal sons and daughters She whispers our name When doubt darkens our door When we choose to play this game And the holy communion Is a temporary tattoo Let me show you something better Outside this union of two Who'll play God if not us? We ask the question out of courtesy But know the answer to it We're alone here to judge and to execute “And it’s a dirty job but someone's gotta do it” Now, this plane will go down With everyone on board Exhale the smoke While you curse the Lord There is no path to resist it Everything is falling apart It'll hold as long as it will hold And then it'll crash down hard Now if I offer up myself Cover quarter of the bill Everybody pays in full And I'll owe three quarters still God won't make a corridor To let me escape The motorway eats its own tail Chokes this city like a snake Ill-wisher, naysayer! In their eyes we are devils Infected with chaos Ill-wisher, naysayer! We’re a rabid militia We're soldiers of terror And if that's how they see it Then yes, we can be it We can be all things Us faithless infinite beings Our methods are immortal We rebel to exist Fanatism does not bend To a law or a fist And I knew from the beginning That I could never win I knew from the beginning I wouldn’t cut it clean And I knew from the beginning How all this would end Dead body, dead body Dead body in the sand
