Track Name: No Chance To Live
Wake up at night again with fear in my mind
Thought i was throught with it - left it behind
Into the abyss I was led once again
Memories that i've forgotten since then
Reliving times when i was left all alone
no hope was given and nowhere was home
Never can shift upon the burden from me
Drained by my hate and fear for all to see

Tried to forget
Tried to forgive
But all my time i had no chance to live

I cannot run
I cannot hide
I cant deny that my soul it had died

Father, he dragged me out of the bed and he said
"Child, dont tell mother, or you will regret"
then he began with his sadistic torment
massive abusion - no love no relent
Breaking apart as i was drifting through hate
I cannot take it no more - I cant wait
Know what to do and nobody can stop me now
I'll have my vengeance - I will take you down!

I hate - no trust - my sanity's lost
Can't contemplate - revenge at all cost!


I can't forget
I can't forgive
As you took hope so will I take your life

Take your last glimpse
Take your last breath
You gave abusion so i'll give you death

Now that I have you in my might - bow to your knees
You'll pay back every moment of my agony
I'll crush your bones - I'll crush your pride - I'll seal your fate
In your last moments you shall feel my endless hate!

I have been forsaken all my life!
I will never have the chance to live!

Solo - Piris
Track Name: Scorching Death
Take a look up to the sky
Prepare yourself for death - without knowing why
Bombing planes and rolling tanks
To take in our home our freedom and life
Marching drums and blazing guns
All ready for the kill - high water or hell!
Roaring sounds and screams in vain
They execute our women, children and men

Why is this happening?
A maddened state has gone insane
Scorching death - 'til none is left
To persecute us all

The human infamy
Philosophy of endless gain
To crush the growth of evil seed
Our greed we must defeat

Ignorant you lived your life
You always thought that you could run from the strife
Contemplate your dreadful fate
As soon you realize you know it's too late
Listen to the tolling bell
You're left all by yourself - your own living hell
Understand - the reason why
For hypocritic greed we're all left to die


Take a look back to the sky
And tell me once again you surely won't die
Bombing planes and rolling tanks
They've taken our homes, our freedom and life
Marching drums and blazing guns
Are forging our land with death at their hand
Roaring sounds of screams in vain
The killing will not end until we repent

Track Name: Tempest
I'll take you down
Now face impending doom
Locked in this cage
Of stricken thoughts and fear and rage

All I want is just to break out of my cell
Devote my powers to break out of my hell

Let the tempest rise
You wont take my life
I will end this strife
I will pull the strings and
take my fate in my own hand!

Left all alone
Forsaken at the gates
With nothing left
A perfect victim - death awaits

I cast you out of my thoughts to live my will
I have a whole life-plan left to be fulfilled


Feel my will come back
Ready for attack
Push my fears away - live life -
And let the tempest rise!

Never let them fears just overtake your mind
Stay strong and take control over your fate
Always wake your eyes for what may lie behind
Don't waste your time to live in fear nor hate

Track Name: Dictocracy
Political system dying
The martyrs of freedom crying
The ultrafashistic rises
A movement was born by crisis

Aggression and pride is rising
It seems to be mezmerizing
The governments feed the tension
And lift it up to ascension

Mistake indoctrination
For a righteous revolution
Economic execution

Lives by manipulation
Justify the great invasion
Calling it retaliation

Impirial might is falling
The thunder of wrath is calling
Inflicting the fear and horror
The innocent feel the terror

When nations are torn by conflict
The screaming of guns - they roar
When freedom is lost by constrict
We never can gain by war

2nd Solo - Piris
Track Name: When Hate Has Dominion
Late night news on every screen
All I hear - their ghastly scream
Homelands torn by frightening war
In fear of death fled to the shore

Helpless, frightened - hope for life
They're condemned to wait for death
As their boats sink to the ground
They realize - to death their bound

Casualties accelerate
While societies torn by hate
Bad or Good or Wrong or Right?
Conflicts to distract our sight

Kill their dreams
Hear their screams
Drowned in the mediterranean

No regrets
No remorse
No help when Hate has Dominion

No one lends a helping hand
But instead in hate we brand
them sucker, sponge and parasite
Cast them 'way and bring them fright

Taste the blood upon your hand
and stick your head into the sand
Close your eyes and shut your ears
and live indoctrinated fears

Shouting crowd "We are the pack!"
Justify their brute attack
Blinded by hypocrisy
Hates concedes atrocity
