Track Name: World
VERSE I
You wonder why I step on stage, and write so much
I wanna heal the pain, open the mind, unite our world
The scale is gigantic, but is this not my concern?
On my flag freedom shines, ever lasting

VERSE II
Can you feel the hook of oppression
Reducing your intellect?
The roots of your heart darkens with
Each cracks! (Another one damned to extinct)
And as corruption grows
Inside each of our spirits
I stand, unbreakable
For we all matter in some way!

VERSE III
Let the universe connect
Let us sync and live in harmony
Our nature brings us closer than anything, children of life
The illusions of matter confines us in a cursed existence
The more decoys fall down, the more it appears clear that you and I, we are the world
Track Name: Animal
VERSE I
This superiority belief is deceiving us
Face the mirror and watch you from the sky
Mankind has gone crazy, strangling its own carrier
How will we live when there will be nothing left?

CHORUS
The invisible slaughter
Covered by a new state of mind
Falling trees and enslaved beasts
Martyrs of our modernity
Life in its many forms
We are killing the animal

VERSE II
The biggest slavery ever done
Forgotten through the ages
We eat, we ride, we wear
And we even kill, sometimes, for fun
We are living beings, and as such
We are soiling our siblings
We were taught to take at first
But aren't we stealing our own selves?

VERSE III
Life is the same cradle for everyone
This land carrying us all
Now burning in dirt
Will you continue to look aside?
Track Name: The Shell
VERSE I
Traped!
You built your wonderland , hero centered by the camera!
They charm your ego to drag you in the nest
The cocoon can begin to grow ..
As the perfume charms you,
The edges of your life redefine!
The more time goes on,
The more you fade in the lie

CHORUS I
Set your mind free from this
Prison, it steals your view
Oblivious Slavery
See the truth beyond the walls of The Shell!

VERSE II
Closing up!
The walls surrounds you and crush - you -
Down!
.. And light fades away!
Disconnected from yourself, you're
Lost in a maze of mirrors! (Your reflection, a deception)
Dismantled soul for a confused slave, you
Struggle all you can but in the end the only thing you fight is ..

The decoy! They made for you!

VERSE III
As the cocoon imprison you,
Your mind gets corrupted and you act like a doll
As your worshiped parasite told you to,
You spread the virus in your aimless fall
Selfish gloomy worthless bitch,
The outcome of your leaks
Their rules and barriers formats you

CHORUS II
If we're to stay in our shells
And embrace darkness
We're gonna destroy everything
and ourselves in the process
Set your mind free from this
Prison, it steals your view
Oblivious Slavery
See the truth beyond the walls of The Shell
Track Name: Shadows of Misery
VERSE I
Crushed by your feelings!
Gone nuts 'cause of suffering!
Reality collapses!
As your mind gets shut away!
Stucked in a spiral you never saw comin'
You now nourish its spinning
A veil on your eyes to darken your vision..
And give up on your hope
Letting nightmares replace your dreams
Letting your heart embrace boredom
Despair becomes a mortal obsession

CHORUS
The eternal war keeps raging on
Light versus darkness, hope versus despair
Torn between those two sides, you try to guess your way
But you are trapped into the shadows of misery

VERSE II
"Your futur is tainted with pain
There was never any solutions
Stay alone, they can't understand
Believe me for I am part of you"

The lies of your inner demons
Will convince you to give up
Using the power of fear
To threaten you with loss
You lock yourself up in despair
deceived by your parasite
Which turned your mind into a maze
to exhaust you

VERSE III
You raise your gaze, in search of a light as a gateway
A star in the sky to save you!
Something, anything to reshape this doomed tomorrow
But everything settle within

VERSE IV
Crushed by your feelings!
Gone nuts 'cause of suffering!
Reality collapses!
As your mind gets shut away!
The key to get away from this hell
seems so hard to reach
Yet it's closer than anything,
hidden in the shadows of your sorrow
And know that until you look deeply into yourself
Your suffering will never end!
Track Name: Business of Fear
INTRO:
Fear is the key to weaken
A filter has been made to control you
Brain dead through their distractions
A certain form of boredom made you fall

VERSE I
Fake emotions from a fake perception
For a fake adventure: You're being deceived
You lost sight of reality, as they
Plug your mind into their camera! And you ..

Don't know it! Assimilated
Your pride is their victory!

VERSE II
"Scream and Fight! We foresaw!
The path you all take, dazzled by the fiction.
Join the flow! Or go against!
Either way, you stay our pawn"

VERSE III
Facts mean more than words, in the end!
Open your mind to contemplate reality
Think outside the box, and be yourself
Track Name: Hate by All Means (feat. Joachim "Josus" Preschner)
VERSE I
Boiling through my veins
The virus prowls eagerly
A curse with all kind of weapons
Watching your weakness

CHORUS
Eating up mankind from within
Sickness of Selfishness
A deceiving poison
This is ... Hate by all means!
The solution with no futur
Born from despair
Look at your roots to see
Your own ... Destruction!

VERSE II
Pain and rage is all I can feel now
And I know there is more to come, I feel it comin'
Never enough, my anger is a black hole!
Devouring my inner soul, and leaving me all alone
But I cannot rest 'til I finish this,
Never enough, my hatred is a black hole

VERSE III
Pushed on by a sense of justice you don't even verify
You dive deeper into the intoxication of hatred
Forget the reason, forget the consequences of your acts
Only remains this burning obsession you crave

VERSE IV
You forgot forgiveness
Will you forgive yourself, when it will be too late?
Rejecting all other ways
The scam will reveal itself, deep down your cell

ENDING
Hatred is self-concern, and in the end, self-destruction!
Track Name: Core Depths
VERSE
In my time of perdition
I come back to the core
In the unmaterial world
I probe myself
Far from everything
I focus on my true foundation
To keep myself away
From your sorrow
An' I won't be a result
of the wrong you've done to me
I'll keep cleaning this place
For as long as I live
Track Name: Papers
INTRO
Leash of the submissive ones
Deceptive Might!

VERSE I
"Won't you jump down the hole for some papers?
'Bet it will grant you ... Your wishes!
It was settled way before your birth
Narrow your mind for our reign
Society is the only option so
Best be the most devoted slave, 'ight?"

VERSE II
First, they tell you money can fill and replace everything
In the end, without it, you don't exist anymore
Almighty God, you twist reality with your golden hand
Your lack of money gets you to sign your own enslavement
Poisoned mind through profit obsession, selfishness morbidly fed
The wealthier you get, the more you disconnect from life
'Buy expensive shit, but days always taste like piss
The power of bill is a false gate!

VERSE III
I may be using money, but I'm not sold out
I may be working, but I'm not a program
My freedom isn't set on any papers
Your limits don't apply to me!

ENDING
I'll be a ghost in your green market
I infiltrate through your lies
The chains exist only in belief
You can wet your papers, you know where to insert
Track Name: D.M.P.
VERSE I
Wakin' up! Too early, I'm shocked by the alarm
I'm tired, angry, irritated, I'm so fucking sick of this
What could be worth forcing myself like this?
Owh, yes, money, but isn't that a lie?
I'm told what to say, what to wear, what to think, what to do
All this for the sake of a stranger I don't care about
And in the end, my paycheck isn't high enough to live
It costs me too much time and mind for the deal to be fair

CHORUS
D - M - P!
D - M - P!
My mind is slipping away
My life is tasting like shit
One day, it'll be too much, I'll
release this frustration you feed
D - M - P!
Daily Maddening Process!

VERSE II
I look around me, they're all dead
No dreams, no fights, nothing remains of their shining
Only an empty shell led by boredom
Stucked in a cycle, until they get spent

VERSE III
And my boss talks to me like a child
Explains to me my only right as a trash is to follow orders
And the fault is always mine.
Will he keep on disrespecting me with a gun down his throat?
I don't give a shit of your professional setting,
Meaning, I'm 'onna wake you up
No shelter left for you to hide
Push a free man to its limits, you will pay!
Track Name: The Candle Flame
VERSE I
Deeply nested within your soul
Burns a frail candle
Its blaze rise with the intensity
of your life!
This precious energy is coveted
By those who lost it
Drogued to distractions to
Relieve the tedium, in vain

VERSE II
Draining your time, draining your strength
Your way is bluring
Draining your faith, draining your will
Encaging you in fear
And after you've been reduced
To a tired depressed waste,
They'll blame you for the blank
you cannot fill anymore

TRANSITION
You'll be left alone, in the dark, when you have lost everything

VERSE III
Open your eyes to see
this future you wanna shape
Let your passion explode
And believe in your infinity
Shelter this fire
You are the ignition
I shall share my flame
With those I love

ENDING
You won't find any salvation
As long as you search in others
You hide behind the filth in your heart
Keep your sorrow for yourself
Track Name: Infinity
VERSE I
Drifting in the middle of space
My eyes betray my weariness
The weight of the ordeals
lost me in chaos
In search of a sparkle
To wake up the fire inside of me
I open my mind to the universe
To watch its gigantism

VERSE II
I can see the infinity hold by
the eternal circle we live in
Let me taste the might of
The mind where one is all
Fill me up!

VERSE III
At times like these,
When you fall on the ground, exhausted
Take a moment to breath, take a step back
Let your mind fly away from reality
To reflect on your life and your path
Open your soul to the elusive wisdom
This force beyond anything you could hold
Let it feed your spirit with infinity
The time has come to unlock your endless potential
