Track Name: To Sow The Seeds Of Earth
What came from water should have drowned in the sea
Who came for you to be the sworn enemy?
In your mind it began to grow logically
The cancer of God - mere debris

Pure hatred drives you further
Dead mirrors reflect your world
In dreams that I behold God is Death
in disguise once faith has returned

Sow the seeds far from Earth
Walls of water, spawned from dirt
Ashes remain when time has turned

What was human once, now is off
My destination is set straight to straight above
Seems like there's nothing but chosen sons
In a culture for morons built on the cult of one

One rule that "God gave to mortals"
is just put-on in human form
But in dreams that I behold God is Death
inflicted by the norm

Sow the seeds far from Earth
Walls of water, spawned from dirt
Ashes remain when time has turned

I - I am the immortal eye
I am a wave to alter the tide
I_see, see behind the curtain
of time to unfold the magic inside

Lead: Fountainhead

Lead: Christian Muenzner

Sow the seeds far from Earth
Walls of water, spawned from dirt
Ash remains when time has turned
Track Name: Silence Speaks
The fall of night
Calling, calling from above
Her voice, quite certain
Narrow yet far from laughter

The tongue of the silent
Sirens - calling from within
A voice of reason
Deafening become the calls of sin

Against all our reasons
Words like coils without a core
The sound of treason
In ravens' beaks he speaks: "Nevermore!"

Silence speaks in tongues of fire
Sonic brigades across the night
Silence Speaks
In opposition word and mind unwind

Silence speaks in devils' tongues of fire
Like starts so bright
Crack the core, inside the marrow
Mind is opening its door

Within shade there's no light
Turning silence to gold
Choke on words from a figure in stories untold
Screams 'til throats are sore
It calls, unsound from shore to shore

Lead: Danny Tunker

Silence speaks in devils' tongues of fire
Crack the core, inside the marrow
Mind's re-opening its door

The fall of night
Calling, calling from above
The fall of reason
Silence - unbound forevermore
Track Name: In The Eye Of The Storm
A savage creature claws
Sirens call, winter falls
Acid corrodes the skin
Like spikes pierce within
Beyond your realm of dreams
There's a restless deep your soul to keep
Hell awaits at the bottom of it all
It's you to heed the call
Don't live up to clichees
Time runs out, time's in vain
Matter to mind, break the chains
Fall far from grace
What is real to me
Is not what seems to be
I am the truth inside your dreams
I am the one who sleeps
Nowhere near too soon -
When sun increases earth becomes our tomb
All hope be found anew
Write when worlds collide, relentlessly
In lies all morals die like flies
Across the sky - In the eye of the storm
Hard to bear but true, cults come alive anew
An epidemic desire for torture
Once the pattern unwinds you can see right behind
a subtle rhyme phrased by vultures
Keep the secret of life in nutshells
Behind the secrecies of lies hides future hindsight
What is real to me
Is not what seems to be
I am the truth inside your dreams
I am the one who sleeps
Nowhere near too soon -
When sun increases earth becomes our tomb
All hope be found anew
Write when worlds collide, relentlessly
In lies all morals die like flies
Across the sky - In the eye of the storm
Lead: Christian Muenzner
Nowhere near too soon -
When sun increases earth becomes our tomb
All hope be found anew
Write when worlds collide, relentlessly
In lies all morals die like flies
Across the sky - In the eye of the storm
Track Name: Hail Satan
There is a pattern of guilt attached to your brain
There's a point of view in the eyes of the insane
There is nothing but a failed community
That appears so free but fears non-conformity
Down with their morals, down with disease
Down - their idols collectively
They've done what is wrong, denied what is right
Hell stands on either side
Hail Satan - just a feeble scheme in the machine of lies
Embrace your fear
Roll the dice
Break the chains of faith to arise
Burn down their church, bring down the priests
Down - the morals collectively
The dogma of guilt - I'm done with that shit
Break rules that the Gods forbid
Hail Satan - just a feeble scheme in the machine of lies
Embrace your fear
Roll the dice
Break the chains of faith to arise
Lead: Danny Tunker
Track Name: Oceanborn
Someone kills, someone dies, someone new is born
In a cycle of doom time flies, yet torn in between
two spectrums of none
Beneath the waves you'll find water
Because I am the one
Because I am the one you shed life upon
The tide's flowing maze
See the wind feed the waves
Oceanborn
Beneath the waves lies the source of life
To start was not our choice
If choices were pre-decided
Born into times, their past is our voice
A future seems subdivided
Like the sea endlessly
spills waves without wasting water
One, for his future, must bury the past
For all truth entails its opposite at last
Beneath the waves all ways might lead to the grave

Lead: Christian Muenzner
Lead: Danny Tunker

Because I am the one
Because I am the one you shed life upon
The tide's flowing maze
See the wind feed the waves
Oceanborn
Track Name: The Crypts Of Sleep
An offering to night's divide
The gates are opening on either side
Shading the sun, curtains fall
Drapes of black fade to ends of all
Downstream on and on I flow
Across into the open
Downwards the spiral once more
To secret halls in my mind
Too dark to trust my own eyes
Light my thoughts with fire
A torch to see the past come alive
In secret realms of the night
Within the crypts of sleep
Digging in your soul too deep
REM - Eyes move, rapidly creep
Below, into the crypts of sleep
Travel in quantum leaps
Enter the new territory
Besiege temporary destinies
Down in the crypts of sleep
Restrictions may seem so weak
Fly over mountains steep -
Deep down in the crypts of sleep
In the shade of the sun
By the light of the moon
No need for aspiration
When day remains undone
Lead: Per Nilsson
My desires come to a close
In dreams obtained
Day never contemplates
For I'll never wake again
You'll never awake again
Track Name: Beyond The Boundaries Of Death
Black is no color obviously
It's unambiguous
No tone for white supremacy
No hue for sickness
Chaos is a stage surprisingly
Stairs to trample on the wind
Call for encores to your fate
Before in nil to transcend
Death may never die when none tries ever right
Dimensions unite
Faith means bleak survival
The selection of the weak
Just uptake, absorb the black
As blood begins to bleed
You got all it takes
To crush the heart of disbelief?
As end result of human flaws
Faith is blank deceit
Death may never die when none tries ever right
Dimensions unite
Nothing is where nothing hides
What is dead may never die
None is real, none alive
What is dead may never die
None dwells where no-one lies
What is dead may never die
The void may be your portal
From heaven sent to breed the immortal
Nothing never dies
None can tell if death is a portal
Nothing never dies
A dying son cannot be immortal
Lead: Erik Rutan
What is dead may never die
Never!
Lead: Danny Tunker
Lead: Christian Muenzner
Can you see what truth is?
Can you feel for real?
As perceived so may be, for real, your destiny
Long forseen
Track Name: Anima Inferna
All the laws have come to an end
but flaws unfailing remain
All your past was mine
For myself - demand, after all, the sublime
All crafts move to one stream
A stream we think is the main one
So clear it seems to be our dream
But all results feel the same
Our conclusion, a grand delusion
Are we the kings of our times?
While we limit what others would die for
human limits stack and outreach the sky
Awaiting the last convulsion
Flaws, unfailing to blame
Reap the harvest of decline
From carbon soil may rise the end of time
Ring the bell for our demise
Abundantly one shall step aside
Infusions of gross illusions
Blood red runs through all veins
We harvest what we seeded before
Self-created "threats" are at the door
A cycle of violence can just be broken by non-violence
Yet men still push against the wheel
Lead: Danny Tunker
Awaiting the last convulsion
Flaws, unfailing to blame
Reap the harvest of decline
From carbon soil may rise the end of time
Lead: Danny Tunker
