Heaven and Hell I fuckin' don't care Purgatory's my nightmare Nausea and anxiety Are both my enemies Forgive me, don't accuse me Forgive me, don't forsake me When it's dark ghosts can feel my breath I can see my own death I'm going down, down the Styx No one can conceive I'm fucking sick I know everybody says I'm a heretic I'm going down, down the Styx Sick of these dark visions Sick of this obsession I'm sick No one can help me and no one can save me Days turn into weeks Weeks turn into months It's already the end, everybody dies someday Evil disease or fear of death Today I don't care anymore The only way to get out is to wait for the light The light will shine, don't ask me why This sickness wasted all my life And I'm waiting, I'm waiting I'm waiting for this moment for so long This action remains my only sin Hades is awaiting me Satan is taking me Sick of these dark visions Sick of this obsession I'm sick No one can help me and no one can save me With this fear, I can't live Sorry I prefer to leave
The fire's falling from the sky Crows fight the light Locusts, dust and blackness Days of darkness When megalomania brings self-destruction Purulent suppuration turns into a destructive infection Rotten flesh in motion Cadaveric decomposition A whole civilisation condemned to this tragic transformation This sickness infects the brain Dead bodies everywhere The sky is burning Our world is suffering This is the end of a reign No more blood to drain They relish our brain, nothing remains, nothing but worms and decay With no emotion, they infect God's creation No revolution, pray and run, it's a living dead invasion Suffer in vain Rotting crows fight the light
Salem 05:09
Always hunted through the centuries Thousands of accusations and executions Blasphemy and medicine as only sins Burned, drowned, killed No mercy for witchery No place to hide No chance to fight Superstitions and ignorance Mass murder in the name of a religion Don't judge them, they don't know what they say Burn the witch, kill the scapegoat Inquisition Burn the church, kill the serpent Necromancy Forgive them, they raise their arms in fear Walking alone on this path of shame They all scream my name I'm the one to blame The pyre is awaiting me I can feel this burning stake And the fire won't stop me They will burn everything but my sorcery Inquisition Necromancy
Holy Venom 04:47
Loneliness is your weakness, influence is my fortress I can be your confidant, your master and your God I will give you love, power and a new identity You will owe faith and allegiance to me, yes you will Dedication is now your religion Seduction is my manipulation You are the outcast They don’t understand you I am the alpha You are the martyr They don’t consider you You will praise your leader and remain my follower Don't let them find and destroy your deepest desire Just confess all your sins to our blessed community Believe me, we will defeat the enemy Self-destruction is your salvation I offer you the holy venom Consume it, accept your destiny Bow down to me and venerate me You're buried alive in this prison One last single shot for your freedom Let the poison run through your veins It's the only way to break your chains We are the outcasts They don’t understand us I am the alpha We are the martyrs They don’t consider you
Killer and forbidden desire Dangerous as a burning fire This is a powerful need Killing like an insidious enemy, growing like a seed Listen, this is my addiction Just give me one more injection Tonight I break my habits But should I cross the limits Dependence is the law Listen, this is my addiction Just give me one more injection Addiction Ingestion Why did I take another dose One way overdose Death is so close One way overdose Sweat abound Heavy legs, buzzing ears I'm on the ground No pain, just fear Everything becomes dark I think I'm losing control Everything is black, I'm falling in this hole I see nothing, I feel nothing, nothing and nothing Where am I? Am I dead? Inhale, exhale
Dark Water 04:18
To get lost in the middle of nowhere This has always been my worst nightmare Water all around me An ominous world No rest for my burning skin Hot and clear until the sun declines Cold and dark when the moon shines Surviving the tempest is my only quest Hoping the sharks won't like my taste I implore the waves, the abyss and the sea The abyss of the sea I implore the waves, the abyss and the sea Desperate destiny Don't take me away Poseidon God of the Sea Please deliver me Don't sacrifice me No more liquid in my body I'm at the mercy of the sea I'm crying with no tears Still trying to fight my fears Sinking in the dark Dying like a rat Yesterday I was the one to slay, today I'm the prey
Mass Grave 04:48
Is this the sound of the flagellants? Devastating their flesh in fragments Demonstration of piety or just human absurdity Starvation and misery All streets are empty And full of dead bodies Sickness of the century Headaches Chills and fever Black spots all over the body Suffering, vomiting Internal bleeding Repulsive smell Miasma or blasphemy This is divine punishment Holy desolation Yersinia pestis Miasma This is supreme punishment Heresy Yersinia pestis Black crosses on the doors Condemned families All killed by this infectious disease
Don't feel ashamed You will always stay the same Stop pretending I swear you're not the only one Don't look at them They don't know what to say Suffer Recover Get out of depression And fight your addiction Suffering is the only key Get out of depression And fight your addiction Suffer, recover, never surrender You can't sleep anymore I know your demons ask for more Ask assistance, you're broken Be patient and stay abstinent Your dependence Gives you more confidence Sickness or illness? They speak about brain disease Recovery Your mind slowly becomes crystal-clear Now it's time to face your fears Suffer, recover
Hypochondriac Meningitis Hypochondriac Hepatitis You are hypochondriac Yes you are What is this? Do you feel? Wait I think I got something Bacteria reign over my body Can you see? Can you feel? I think I could be really sick Hypochondriac Analgesics Hypochondriac Antibiotics You are hypochondriac Yes you are I have this I found it I have Cancer Otitis Cancer Syphilis I googled all my symptoms Just one click on internet I have this, I found it Now I’m sure I’m really sick Hypochondriac Brucellosis Hypochondriac Nocardiosis You are hypochondriac Yes you are You are hypochondriac Yes I am
Parasomnia 04:07
When night is falling All fiends are killing Monsters and dead souls are fighting Hidden in the dark They are the last shields Protecting the Night King Insomnia Night terror Parasomnia I can see blood on me Release me, awake me Paralyzed, I can't flee This alternate reality Haunted in my dreams Surrounded by demons It's just my imagination Abominations Subconscious illusions Dawn is my only weapon I feel a bullet in my chest Another night with no rest Eyes wide open End of the fiction
No one can feel No one can speak This is a new society Led by insanity They want to slave my soul They want to slave my body Claiming all rights on me Everything has changed I've only one thing left It's my right to think They can get inside me No more dignity But they can't get in my head My right to think They steal my identity This curse becomes my destiny The seed is already part of me I'm the servant Can you see it growing? Can you see it spreading? My mission is to carry this fruit Nine months is the countdown They will take him away I'm here only to serve Give me back my liberty Abolish this slavery Abolish this ceremony Abrogate this slavery
