Track Name: Deprivation
Move him into the shadow
Send them straight to hell
Dulce et decorum est
So ring the bell

A huge pile of futility
Dying for their country

Move him into the shadow
The bringer of life
Is twisted in death
Only hastens decay

Dumped in massgraves
Bodies depraved

All lame, all blind
Bones that grind
Death the only truth
For the doomed youth

Move him into the shadow
The bringer of life
Is twisted in death
Only hastens decay

A huge pile of futility
Dying for their country

Onwards for honour!
Onwards for death!
Onwards for notions
Blown up in your head!

Onwards for freedom!
Onwards for pride!
Onwards, destroy
Anyone not allied!

Dumped in massgraves
Bodies depraved

All lame, all blind
Bones that grind
Death the only truth
For the doomed youth
Track Name: Kadavergehorsam (Do And Die)
Run away, never stay stationary
Always under attack

Fighting for survival with the burden
Of your world on your back

Ghosts lurking in the trees, in the tunnels
Enemies everywhere

Put in hell for a cause you don't know
And the world doesn't care

No way out
Just an endless war
Victory is
In the body count

For duty, for manhood, not yours to reply
No questions asked

Just do and die
Just do and die
Just do and die
Make no reply
Just do and die
Just do and die
Just do and die
Just do and die

Stress and pressure as the only constants
Turn to atrocity

String them up, they must die, take no chances
Everyone's enemies

Run away, never stay stationary
Always under attack

Fighting for survival, fully aware
That you'll never go back

No way out
Just an endless war
Victory is
In the body count

For duty, for manhood, not yours to reply
No questions asked

Just do and die
Just do and die
Just do and die
Make no reply
Just do and die
Just do and die
Just do and die
Just do and die
Track Name: Feed The Leviathan
Arms extended, built from our toil
Forged from granite and steel
One overarching power
Slowly decaying sense

Feed the leviathan
In the shadow of the monolith

Seeking to redeem the state of
Bellum omnium contra omnes
Solitary, poor, nasty and brutish
Despondent glare down from the sky
One overarching power
Slowly decaying sense

Feed the leviathan
In the shadow of the monolith

No place in light
Constant struggle
For a clear vision
In the kingdom of darkness

A monstrous man
With no regard for life
Only control and authority
Not a soul in sight
One overarching power
Slowly decaying sense

Feed the leviathan
In the shadow of the monolith
Track Name: Strict Seawater Diet
Reefing the sail with clenched teeth
Towering black waves consuming my mind
Gruff face staring at (the) defeat
Thinking of the captain we left behind

Choose to die under ground
Or live a short life at sea
Your ambition keeps us at bay
The anchor of our short lives

The mast was felled by a blow from the sky
Exhausted and helpless and driven by the tides
Left on a windswept rock to die
Teethless gnawing on your bones
Black skies, dark eyes, empty hearts
Teethless gnawing on your bones

Choose to die under ground
Or live a short life at sea
Your ambition keeps us at bay
The anchor of our short lives

You bled for leading us
You bled for running us
You bled and I smile
One last smile!
Track Name: Damnant Quod Non Intelligunt
We wrote these lines to get you off our backs
We hate these times because you make us sick
We want you to step down and shut your mouth
We want you to stop being such a grouch

To be labelled somewhat the same as you
All your wrongdoings we must undo

We despise you, we’ll fight you, we’ll make you pay
For all your lies, your disguise, come your judgement day
We won’t surrender, give in to the shit you sell
All you fuckers can go to hell

We wrote these lines to get you off our backs
We hate these times because you make us sick
We want you to step down and shut your mouth
We want you to stop being such a grouch
To be labelled somewhat the same as you
All your wrongdoings we must undo
Your xenophobic and simplistic ways
Misguided hatred makes us so ashamed

We despise you, we’ll fight you, we’ll make you pay
For all your lies, your disguise, come your judgement day
We won’t surrender, give in to the shit you sell
All you fuckers can go to hell

We despise you, we’ll fight you, we’ll make you pay
For all your lies, your disguise, come your judgement day
We won’t surrender, give in to the shit you sell
All you fuckers can go to hell
Track Name: The Emperor Is Laughing (While You Are Making Plans)
Pliers separate meat from my chest
Hot molten metal poured in instead
No food, no shelter, whipped 'till we bleed
In prison we're kept for a small deed
Torture and chains, fall embodied
Revenge is at hand, he mustn't succeed
Flood of happiness, a torrent of blood
We cut him down ended up in the mud

The headless prince washed up on shore
I thought of yesterday, did we win the war?
Dethroned conductor installed in our heads
An unfelt grasp, we don't feel the threat
Longing for pain, hating our reign
Unable to see what we have gained
The night is upon us, the light is far gone
Let's take control of our self-incarnation

Dethroned conductor installed in our heads
An unfelt grasp, we don't feel the threat
Dethroned conductor installed in our heads
An unfelt grasp, we don't feel the threat
Track Name: Animalism
Pushed too hard
Against the wall
Out of nowhere and coming for the throat!
Running amok
Blind and enraged
Out of nowhere and coming for the throat!

Running from a world of blood
Running from blight
The beast will out
Ferociously out of its mind

Pushed too hard
Against the wall
Out of nowhere and coming for the throat!
Running amok
Blind and enraged
Out of nowhere and coming for the throat!

Excess fury
Pumping through the veins
A pitbull terrier
Beaten and starved
Running loose
From broken reigns
Track Name: Iron Triangle
They built a web full of lies and deceit
Sustaining the armies - armed to their teeth
Sell peace – produce misery
Who's the winner in every war?

Hawks hovering, high in the sky
But the war pigs never die

CEOs should fight the war
Presidents should fight the war
Politicians should fight the war
Shareholders should fight the war

Trading stocks, blood on their hands
Profit returns over human lives
Merchants of death and their allies
Who's the winner in every war?

Hawks hovering, high in the sky
But the war pigs never

Do you know where your savings are kept?
Are they growing on the killings fields?
Can you say your hands are clean?
Are you one of them? We all are!

Hawks hovering, high in the sky
But the war pigs never die
Track Name: Discomposure
I will round up the horde
I will gather the throng
Some must pay
For this wrong

Discompose the state
Act it out in violence
A people united
In vengeance

Unreflected hatred
Incarnated as
A swarm of violence
Sweeping the land

Discompose the state
Act it out in violence
A people united
In vengeance

Discompose the state
Act it out in violence
A people united
In vengeance

Fear of the unknown
Transformed into
Carte blanche justification
For any form of aggression

The apocalypse draws near
In the mind and hands of the leader
Dreaming feverish
Nightmares of terror!
Dreaming feverish
Nightmares of terror!
Track Name: Corrupted
You sit on your throne of decay
While the world is rotting away
We bury you alive in absentia
Every day!

A monolithic shadow
An economic power structure
Globalised poverty
This is a closed party!

Institutions of corruption!

Privatization is god,
Embargoed free trade
Staggering interest rates
Breeds a new brand of slaves

You sit on your throne of decay
While the world is rotting away
We bury you alive in absentia
Every day!

People falter and break
So you can have your steak
When money rules
Compassion is a ruse

Institutions of corruption!

The tide will turn
And sweep you away
Crushing you
Every step of the way

Destroy the walls
Make them fall
Track Name: Savior
Keep feeding on
Our empty prayers
And lost hope

Betrayer! No savior!
False hope
Betrayer! No savior!
False hope

Plant the seeds
Let it grow

Keep feeding on
Our empty prayers
And lost hope

Betrayer! No savior!
False hope
Betrayer! No savior!
False hope

Reap the violence
Unleash fury
Upon the world

Batter their hearts
Proclaim yourself gods
Destroy them to save them
The savior applauds

Your arguments
Consist merely of
Cold steel,
Pure force,
And dirty bombs

Violence
Upon the world

Batter their hearts
Proclaim yourself gods
Destroy them to save them
The savior applauds

Batter their hearts
Proclaim yourself gods
Destroy them to save them
The savior applauds
The savior applauds
The savior applauds
Track Name: Rabies God
This is my rifle!
My best friend!
Without it I am
Useless

Before God I swear

My rifle is
It is my life
We will become
Part of each other

Before God I swear - this creed

Destroy Babylon
Tear it to the ground
In the lord’s name,
Unleash hell

Blessed is our revenge!

In the lords name
Unleash hell
Destroy Babylon
To the ground
Destroy Babylon
Unleash hell
Blessed is our revenge

Happy are we
For we smash
Your infants
Against the rocks

Blessed is my revenge

My rifle and myself
Are the defenders
Of my country.
We are the masters
Of our enemy.
We are the saviors
Of my life.
So be it,
Until there is
No enemy,
But peace!
