Track Name: Ghost In The Machine
Connected to this network, machinery of lies
Social life's a tiny spot way down the line
Now you´re living your life through the empty glaring glass
Human Feelings and circuitry, now entwined

Losing the awareness of an outside world
Lurking in the shade of a lonely light bulb

Your soul has become a ghost in the machine

Emotionless, floating facedown
On a TV screen, calculating infinity
Synapse powered off by a switch

There is nothing left of your former self,
Your human nature has been taken
By the time you waste without any affection

It is time to disconnect this ghost in the machine

You´re just one interaction away from the disaster
Break this unhealthy bound, cut loose off your master
Now you´re living your life through the empty glaring glass
Human feelings and circuitry, now entwined

Losing the awareness of and outside world
Lurking in the shade...

Emotionless, floating facedown
On a TV screen, calculating infinity
Synapse powered off by a switch

Flick the switch
Track Name: Pyro-Technics
False morality on a TV screen
Brainwashed society living on it´s knees

Fake authority teach us how to be
What to believe, what we can see
Truth lies deep beneath

People gathering, laws forbid what´s free
Actions speak louder than words so step off your routine

Streets philosophy, taught me how to be
What to believe, so now I see
Truth lies deep beneath

Claim your right to live, or step aside and let us be
Part of the disease...

Through harder times we´ve survived
No propaganda, nothing will change our minds
Dig your own grave, your own words will bring you down

Trying to find salvation we run towards extinction
Look at your creation one last time before the truth be told
Before the truth be told

Claim your right to live, or step aside and let us be
Part of the disease to end with your demon-cracy
Burn it down to the shreds, our pyro-technics lead the way
Be part of the disease, or step aside and let us be
Let us
Track Name: Into The Void
Lost and forsaken, your world has turned black
No money, nor beauty, nothing but regret
Repent all those moments that´ll never come back
You burnt all your pages, this is what you get

Since long ago you´ve been trying to grow up,
Those early mistakes didn´t mature your heart
Leaving you a life where you´ve lost the right path
Wrong choices you made lay now in the past

There´s no taking them back, You wasted your luck
Luck

Sinking, down below

Fell from this world, nothing fulfills your greed
You sucked dry your life, now you choke on that seed

The seed of greed, wanted to know everything
Reality, universe's much too big to see

So you´re sinking, down below

Now that you´ve carved your own fate in the stone
You´re still young and lost, sense you made none
Noone will listen a word you will say
Annoyed by your wisdom, the price you will pay

Lost and forsaken, your world has turned black
Your money, your beauty, nothing but regret
Leaving you a life where you´ve lost the right path
Wrong choices you made lay now in the past
Noone will liste a word you will say
Annoyed by your wisdom, the price you will pay
Erase those memories, paint them black
Into these void you´re now far gone
Track Name: Soulburn
I can´t believe my eyes,
You´ve got everything you want, still you complain
Your persecution complex,
Has made everyone around you slowly go away
Hidden in your hard shell,
Much too long your head´s been stuck inside
Never realize

That this life is not about you,
This isn´t your stage, we´re not your actors
We all make mistakes, we all do fuck ups
But "we" is a word you don´t understand at all

REF:
"You think you already know everything
But the best way to learn sometimes is admitting that you´re wrong
For once in your life be aware of the world
Or soon you will be thrown to the point of no return"

Down in a hole
Emotions are gone
Finally you´re left alone

Now you can stop pretending
This isn´t your stage, we´re not your actors
We all make mistakes, you´re no exception
Stop burning our souls with your objections

[REF]

Stop pretending, feel the soulburn
Track Name: Face-Pounder
Your personal quest is to make my life hell,
Your train of words carries on with no brakes
You don´t seem to get a simple clue
Everyone around you just loathes you

Bluffing around, your everyday treat
Looking for some souls to corrupt with your shit
Maybe someday you will get out of yourself
And see that the world doesn´t exist by your days

Deep inside you should know, nobody's listening to you
You´re feeding on your own illusion, the higher you are the further you fall

Still you keep on making lives hell,
The price you pay will eventually be erased
As your lies pierce through our brains
We just want to pound your face

REF:
"Then comes the calm, the one before the storm
I make no sound, nor a move nor frown
Your feelings are gone, you´re left on your own
Like a wounded phoenix, that slowly will
Burn"

As your lies pierce through our brains
We just want to pound your face

[REF]
Track Name: Me Against Me
Fix me now, put an ending to this craving, longin and waiting
Fix me now, soothe my mind with your magic spell
Show me now, my thoughts are crystal clear
Show me now, the fabric of life is now revealed

Roaming free, no frontiers
Flying high, then it stops

And then the need hits harder than before
Now I´m in, and lost control

Try to hold the reins, don´t back down
Before you lose your mind in this vicious circle

REF:
"I keep fooling myself saying that I´m strong enough
To get rid of this insanity that clouds my mind"

Fix me not, no more craving nor waiting
Fix me not, facedown and pushing through
Save me now, not sure I can do this alone
Save me now, decisions and choices my mind is going to explode

Try to hold the reins, don´t back down
Before you lose your mind in this vicious circle

[REF]
Track Name: Artifacts Of Chaos
Tainting this world, plotting to gain complete control
Governments are set by their infiltrated minds
The voice of the people is muted by their media mind control
Rebelling it´s futile, if people doesn´t know the truth

Artifacts of chaos, we are puppets in the hands of new gods
Manipulate society, to make us believe that we are safe

Capitalism is the tool to enslave mankind without a single clue
People just work and spend, no concern for the mother nature
True power resides in those who know how to exploit Earth
So they keep us occupied while they suck dry our own world

Artifacts of chaos, we are puppets in the hands of new gods
Manipulate society, to make us believe that we are safe

Artifacts of chaos
We´re born to be those artifacts of chaos
We´re born to be those fucking slaves
Trapped in this world
That are destined to be exploited, manipulated
Puppets in the hands of new gods
Come and fight dont go away
(resist now)
Remember that we are deffending our homes
(kill em all)
Increase your bloodthirst and your hate
(resist now)
Take all your courage and die
(resist now)
Beat them with rage!!!
Rage!!!
Die!!!

Artifacts of chaos, we're puppets in the hands of new gods
Manipulate society to make us believe that we are safe
Now the hour's upon us, we will have to choose a side
Fight and die with honor, or surrender just to become an Artifact
Track Name: Not In Our Name
Deception in your eyes, pain in our cries
Manipulate, deceive us with your lies
From time to time you´ve been the ones to talk
We´ve had enough your time has come

REF:
"Descending from your throne
We won´t heed your call
Brainwashed, no more
We´ll get rid of your godlike control
We won´t follow"

They think they can keep controlling us
Freedom is what they will never grant
Do what you will, we won´t follow you
This time we´ll say "not in our name"

Not in our name

Corruption, deception
Your power's been built on
Don´t look for redemption
Now we won´t back you up

We won´t back you up

Defeat in your eyes, there´ll be no more cries
You have been erased, left no trace
Without your control your reign has come to a close
Give up all hope, prepare to be

[REF]
Track Name: Energize
I can feel you, your vibrations all around, embracing me
Something inside of me, feel released when you´re with me
Braincells reacting, to your beats, your timing's exquisite
I feel recharged, when I hear you through the stereo

Blow my speakers! Pure adrenaline rush
Blow me away!

Every single detail, is analyzed, senses multiply
I´m far gone, on your arms, with your sweet lullaby

This is my power source, my energy
Linked with your frequencies
Hypnotized by your melodies
Entangled with me

Each note weaves your thread of perfect symmetry,
Mathematically led

This is my power source, my energy
Linked with your frequencies
Hypnotized by your melodies
I´ll always be where you want me to be
Track Name: Timebomb
4, 3, 2, 1

Humankind has lost it´s humanity
3rd world war is coming around the bend
Money spent on military sources
As famine tears down the one's once feed

REF:
"Time won't heal us this time
World is going down, nations are colliding
This timebomb is wired, left just one adjustment
Created by our hatred, machinery of disaster

4, 3, 2, 1

Bank-ruled Government, money made you slaves
Who made you God to say what is best for human race
You mortgage our existence just so we can have a life
Money will be nothing once society is gone

The countdown to extinction has begun
4, 3, 2, 1, Push the button

[REF]

Push the button

[REF]

Push the button
Track Name: Breaking Through
Drowning in my own sea of selfish lies
Conscience' screaming out pleading for a change

Change, turn round the rules
Make lies be truth, remember the path is what you choose
Get out of yourself, out or your shell
Surrounded by lies, you´re breaking through

Trying to speak all these words I cannot say
When all that´s around doesn´t seem to fit

Living afraid, of what will be coming next
Close my eyes and drift away, waiting for a change

Change, turn round the rules
Make lies be truth, remember the path is what you choose
Get out of yourself, out or your shell
Surrounded by lies, you´re breaking through

Trying to speak all these words I cannot say
When all that´s around doesn´t seem to fit
Mental overload, breaking through it
With these words it will be begin
Track Name: Astral Projection
Have you ever felt like there's something more?
A hidden meaning, some higher beings, that we´re not alone
Tossing and turning my mind wants to soar
To be projected to another world
As I drift off slowly closing my eyes
My mind is thrown far away, at the speed of light

Sailing through the infinity of space, dancing around the stars
The Milky Way is just a tiny spot left behind in this eternal night

Dead planets floating next to me, I´ve seen the stars shine off
A million years ago
Frozen creatures lying in the cold, Archetypical Gods
One day they´ll rise to conquer us all

This coldness soothes any pain while I float obliviously
The vision starts to fade, suddenly I feel taken away

(The trip back home)

When I wake up I´m all soaked in sweat
Was it just a hot night or was it the effort?
Dazed and confused real life' still entwined
My mind is filled with memories, I don´t clearly understand
Reminescences of

Dead planets floating next to me, I´ve seen the stars shine off
A million years ago
Frozen creatures lying in the cold, Archetypical Gods
One day they´ll rise to conquer us all

Conquer us all
