    Lyrics:

    It glides on the blade of the razor of time
    Shining in unpredictable appearance
    A majestic twirling of death and gods
    In infinite processions it continues its descent

    Waddling, cursing, where the river ends

    Wait for the sand pouring onto its body
    Tiny insects suffocating within my hourglass
    A thousand of harpies are croaking
    A funeral march for the tombstone of faith

    Scarring, scratching, where the river ends

    A different shape will be given to things
    Corrupted and corroded by vixen blood drops
    You all drink till sinking

    Spitting, vomiting, where the river ends

    Lyrics:

    Dreams distilled by thy crowish visions
    Are floating on the wind
    Dancers who forgot their dance
    Poets who forgot their words
    Ich sehe uns in deinen Augen
    Ich bin die Königin
    On the broken glass throne
    You point your finger at the reel
    To put all of us to sleep
    Du bringst Tod mit dir

    Gabriele Pala – guitars, vocals, programming

    Lyrics:

    Morning holds blood in its mouth
    Grinding its stridulous teeth
    Like shocks infibulating nerves
    The will flies now thus far
    Like a condor in the fog fed up by germs and infants
    Sail towards volcanic shores
    Erupt thy disgraced majesty
    Play chess with the one behind your face
    Drug your spouse lying in her virginal white veil
    A knife into her love
    And the palace collapses
    Spots of blinking lights hypnotize my viper
    As you all suck my heart
    Blindness to your inquisitive eye
    Like the butterfly strangling me
    A slipknot to humanity
    Broken down palace crumbles to bricks
    Unstructured by a ray of light
    Nothing will preserve your memory
    Unfolded by corrosive hot wings
    Landing onto the nowhere-land of my thoughts
    A desert of charred flowers
    Logic sequence is lost forever
    As my ruins lie abandoned

    Gabriele Pala – guitars, vocals, programming

    Lyrics:

    A shot in the source of frantumed disorder
    A spectacle of crystals trapping butterfly wings
    Spiderwebs of chaos bent to the seams of universe
    Eat in the primordial broth, beast
    We are like granite stones on the rim of the abyss

    Boycott the apocalyptic shadow design
    Enemy of yourself, inhale the sulphur smell
    The red blood has dried in your veins
    In your eye red dust
    You wait in the dark, in absence of gravity

    A destiny of unsatisfied desire

    Lyrics:

    A foreign face, two unknown eyes, but should it be me?
    All my thoughts in this black glass reflect my fears
    All that I see are ruins dancing around me
    Life now fades away from sanity

    A foreign face, those unknown walls, but is this my home?
    A new floor made of sand is hurting my feet
    All that I see are ruins dancing around me
    Life now fades away from sanity

    Dreams forever gone
    Distant sounds passing by
    A blurred image stays on
    Parity of reasoning
    Lies beyond what I feel now
    Our roads depart from here
    I have lost the sense of time
    And I’m still falling down

    Dreams forever gone
    Distant sounds passing by
    A blurred image stays on
    Those towers falling down

    Lyrics:

    Lost inside outside, nowhere
    I’m supposed to go astray
    No compass, that’s not my way
    I don’t wanna sink this way
    I don’t wanna sink today

    Sail away
    Find a way
    Yesterday

    Morning light, crossing and tearing this bounce of time
    I can’t hide
    Forever crawling to the top of the tower
    The tower’s my destiny
    Longing to that, the deep

    Sail away
    Find a way
    No escape

    Can’t you see, this melody is bleeding off my deadly night
    I can’t take no rest
    Pull me out from this pain

    This misty morning is blurring out my track
    In front and back and upside down
    The signs of this king without a crown are friendly seeds and all way back
    Runaway, they all say
    Runaway, I feel them
    Runaway, I know them ran away

    India
    No way to see you
    No way to meet you
    Fallen star
    From the top of this sky so high

    Someday, one day
    Every day missing my fairytale
    Leading me where your leaves ain’t fall
    Calm waters singing you’re alone
    Glide in soft summer breeze

    Every day but not today

    Lyrics:

    Concentrate your private fears, now I feel like I feel
    To delegate my dues is not for you, there’s nothing true in this
    Analyze my life: a total strife, a total loss indeed
    Analyze my life: a total strife, so where’s the enemy?
    I look in the abyss of my soul
    And close my eyes one more time

    You have told me that you need devotion
    All the lies I just can’t control
    Can’t you see me, I’m in endless motion
    I always end up missing my goal

    Take you fears in your hands
    Act before it’s too late
    Fight yourself in the dark
    Watch the light in your eyes
    Keep the sand in your hands

    Look in the mirror, a face in front of you
    Small eyes are growing inside
    I try to destroy those voices within my brain
    I became conscious of these brutal fears
    Ten thousand worms are devouring my soul
    And I fight alone for my sanity

    Take you fears in your hands
    Act before it’s too late
    Fight yourself in the dark
    Watch the light in your eyes
    Keep the sand in your hands

    Lyrics:

    We’re stabbing the million of us
    With countless empty words
    But now I need your trust
    To build up a brand new world
    We’re stabbing the million of us
    With countless empty eyes
    But now I see how fast our lives fade away

    My home, the change, the dream, the end

    I visualize in my mind an inner place to reach
    Where to hide, where two towers stand so tall and high
    In the sky, their limit is lost among the clouds
    Far from sight, cannot know what to expect from me

    We always make decisions about what is good or bad
    Perspectives for the future are shiny fruits on trees
    We always make decisions about what is good or bad
    Those things to left behind, like dried fallen leaves

    My home, the change, the dream, the end

    I visualize in my mind an inner place to reach
    Where to hide, where two towers stand so tall and high
    In the sky, their limit is lost among the clouds
    Far from sight, cannot know what to expect from me

    Lyrics:

    Moon shines over the trees
    Night wind is swirling while a gente wolf sings
    Black hair is casting her spell
    And dew drops will ring the morning bell

    Come now open the chest
    This treasure is worth the dragon breath
    No more need to pretend
    Now close your eyes and hold my hand

    Please sun hear the cry of this soul
    Dry all the tears flowing onto my face
    Please sun open wide my eyes
    Show me the lonely road of life

    Now I am ready for a second rebirth
    From a crysalis I’ll bloom
    Towards the sun I’ll finally go
    With nor hesitation nor fear
    I trust a hope kept far from this world
    So please hold my hand

    All the wild flames in the night we meet
    Making my wine tasting now so sweet
    Mankind’s lost its blanked mind
    Drink with me and we will find

    Lyrics:

    In the night of times I dream on
    But tonight the silence is screaming
    In the night of times I dream my home

    Every night I see the river
    Of sins and fallen fables
    And I hear the silent scream “My home”

    I hear the sun going down
    Above this fragile boy
    And still the sorrow remains

    Until the sun goes down, floating on this bloody sea
    Until the sun goes down, please remind on me
    And now you show me something I’m not so proud to see
    I’m floating all alone, so far away, so far today

    You’re feeling your emptiness of countless empty words
    You feel you have no more trust to build a brand new world
    You’re feeling your emptiness of countless empty eyes
    Right now I can see how fast our lives will fade away

    I will remember
    I will discover
    Into this fire
    Into this tower

    And now I feel your tower is getting weaker
    And now you feel the flood is getting higher

    Silent screaming, no more bleeding, no escape from fire
    My desire, deaf desire, there’s no dream to hire
    And now you feel your tower slowly getting weaker
    And now you feel the flood, slowly getting higher

    Free all the sorrow, lying on my gloomy face
    It’s just a paradise, caught in my mind
    Free all the sorrow, flowing on my deadly fate
    No time to realize, I’m forever blind
    I’m staring at stars tonight

    Forever blind

    Gabriele Pala – vocal, guitars, programming

    Lyrics:

    Panting in anguish
    Around me only fog
    Leaded raindrops are thrashing my skin
    A dead baby is maturing in my womb to be littered by a burnt witch
    I drink from the spring poisoned by unsleeping mind’s miasmas

    Paranoid is overcoming the bridge in between internal abysses
    To perceive the lament of the damned through tenebras hiding them from sight
    Feel the sickness in your limbs as you’re nailed down to the ground
    Hammering swarms of blind insects are scratching to blood this human cattle

    We are the mercy of everything, whilst reigning onto nothing

    There is no other street to follow to get out from this infernal maze
    The black guardians are staring us
    Creeping in this horrendous mental mud
    Contorted bodies deformed now rot represent my innermost thoughts

    As I’m vanishing from the real life
    To isolate myself before they can see
    We bow down to false interior idols
    Horrible voices howling inside
    Hear the whips of chaos within

    Lyrics:

    Sevenfold thy heaven, oh innocent
    Let me push myself in thee
    I am going to bath in the pool of blind insanity
    To reach the edge where Christ’s doctrine hangs
    Tortured it will be by those blades you’ll ever deny to see

    You are the key to the abyss
    Unconscious door to Satan

    Rumors in your head, it’s me
    Oh incredible desire
    Splashing where the light fades away
    Where demons call forth my name

    Winds – sweep away all fears
    Night – lick perversed my soul
    I am the subtle death
    The cancer that breaths inside your brain is the very link to hell

    Open up thy mind to worship me below

    You are the key to the abyss
    Oh unconscious door to Me
    You are the key to the abyss

    Welcome to my hell

    Lyrics:

    Those creatures

    Bloating, contorting, entwining, multiplying
    Invading my space and my mind

    I will dance among unhumans
    Lost in time and whirlpools of water
    Liquid rancid minds, former boiling broth
    Insanity unveiled as deadly thoughts are freed
    Odd nature revealed, feel their pleasure sad
    Seeing my ego overwhelmed
    Algae evolving to living complex forms
    Virus of hate is seeded in the depths of my hypotalamic pool

    Souls are dancing, melting in the sea
    Clouds are spawning bloody children
    Swallowed be their soft red bodies
    To reflow on earth in form of water

    Creatures of the underworld

    Lyrics:

    Charade

    A musicbox clinging out nightmares is exploding in my head
    Like the bullet swallowed by the suicide hangs on the tree of Judas
    Indistinct sounds emerge from the innermost depths of the unknown universe

    Webs weaved by the spiders dwelling in my scars
    Moon becomes a smile strangling me like an umbilical cord

    Nobody is allowed to sleep entangled in those moanings
    Splitting up two perfect halves of the eternal contrast
    An odd fight between what you are and what you should be
    An uncomplete charade, a persistent game

    Undeletable like a malediction is afflicting my flesh wet by fear

    Slay the aborted phoetus
    Letterless anagram

    Lyrics:

    Blind I stay, unveiled by the night
    Of demons I dreamt, a warrior I’ve been
    In the darkness now shunned by the light

    Deadly I laid, comatous appearance
    Now the spark ignites
    My mortal shell is going to revive

    Blind I stay, unveiled by the night
    Of demons I dreamt, a warrior I’ve been
    In the darkness now shunned by the light

    Thoughts of misbelievers
    Phantoms of themselves
    I’m their only leader
    Forging new conceptions
    When mind reawakens

    I’m a prostitute of death myself
    I’m Morpheus, the dream warper

    Millions of stars now flash
    Neurons they will slash
    Imagination can they thrash
    Those, capable of wringing my flesh

    Mortal sleep suffocate the need of life
    Into deadly shadows my breaths will be turned
    For my personal glory mourned I am
    Now a cold piece of harmful ice I’ll be to their eyes

    Thoughts of misbelievers
    Phantoms of themselves
    I’m their only leader
    Forging new conceptions
    When mind reawakens

    I’m a prostitute od death myself

    Millions of stars now flash
    Neurons they will slash
    Those, capable of wringing my flesh

    Mortal sleep suffocate the need of life
    Into deadly shadows my breaths will be turned
    Now a cold piece of harmful ice I’ll be to their eyes
