IN­SI­DI­OUS

I feel all black inside like coal
I wonder if you know?
An evil thri­ves inside my soul
the dar­kest place I know
I rage at eve­ry­one I see
Noctur­nal fiends and all that be
just keep away from me

I search the sha­dows of my inner being
and see re­flecti­ons of my twis­ted me­mo­ries
The darker half of our nature
our misery
Is this the mon­ster you call mad­ness?
Insa­nity?

I feel all black inside like coal
I wonder if you know?
an evil nou­rished by my soul
the dar­kest place I know

so far from who we are
be­ne­ath our hidden scars
so far from where we once were
save me from this dark and twis­ted avatar
lead me back to where we were

It scra­pes the cor­ners of this waking dream
my own illusi­ons lea­ving fis­su­res in its seams
A pure dis­tinction of hatred
and je­a­lousy
Is this the one fallen angel
inside of me?

I feel all black inside like coal
how could you even know?

SUPER STEVE

I only act and speak as I feel
Their world so enig­ma­tic and unreal

We've got some freak po­ten­tial
but that's just great
it makes us who we are,
mol­ding our mental state

it feels so fragile our web of dreams
yet you could not break its truth
nor tear its seams

Don't look so skep­tic when
you turn your eyes to me
So­me­ti­mes a hero ain't
what you've seen on TV

The fire, it knows me and
I can walk through the blaze wi­thout a mark
fo­re­ver it owes me the life
I lost in the dark
The higher it takes me the more
I'm able to reach out­side the walls
of our per­cep­tion
and grab a piece for us all

some flaws are cha­rac­ter, wear your crown!
come bro­ther me
and all illusi­ons will fall down

DREAD­NAU­GHT

So we're fi­nally united here
at the cros­sroads of our fears
Now the voice of god is eve­ry­where
in our heads and in our ears

Turn the world into an enemy
and be­lieve in me
I will make you see

I will never grant you ground
re­mem­ber me and why you all bow down
to a metal forge do­mi­nion
Silent in a heart of steel
the voice that speaks so any man can feel
You be­lieve in our do­mi­nion

Now the terror is the other we
and their unholy deity
It's time to boost the no­to­ri­ety
of our great so­ci­ety

FLAG­CARRIER

Flash of light, soft yet bright
I walk be­ne­ath the sha­dows
of the ever­ni­ght
Never could have known
there was a place like this
where the world burns
and still I can exist

I can't hear the storm any­more
and I don't know what it's for
I can't feel my legs
but still I keep going
I can't feel my hands
but still I rest knowing
that I won't go alone

In the far twi­li­ght awaits
opens up to em­brace

This barren soil
scor­ched and sta­i­ned
by the blood of sol­diers
left fallen in the rain
All the light in the world today
Won't light up the night
into which I walk away

RETURN TO SNAKE MOUN­TAIN

I taste the bitter sweet­ness
of re­venge and fly
no other me­a­ning ever
stills my vi­o­lent sky

Abused and vi­o­la­ted
by those who con­t­rol
I am re-ani­ma­ted
yet I have no soul

There's no dis­tinction in my mind
You are all my ene­mies

I will return
to rec­laim my broken past
to pay the evil mi­ni­ons back
for my misery at last
I will return
to the for­tress to redeem
to wipe this evil ni­ghtmare
from my memory and dreams

I will not fade away
and die like all the rest
I will return to wipe out
ter­mi­nate your nest

PLAYER ONE

A misfit to this space
no re­li­gion no real place
I grow weary of these walls
so tired of it all

Dull gray and en­dless days
here where evil has no face
It is hidden from my eyes
unseen or in dis­gu­ise

Wel­come to a world
where you always get the girl
You may lose a fight or two
but you'll win if you get through

Face up and challenge all
you ever knew since you could crawl
Always lo­o­king so­mewhere else
when it's all inside your­self

I wanna play until I die
don't wanna lose my re­a­sons why
I race to­wards the sky
in a world that never ends

I keep coming back for more
coming back until I score
always stron­ger than before
in a world that never ends

now I feel like that again!

To­morrow I will be here,
and I won't be the only one.
Our dreams will always adhere
to a world beyond this one

DEUS EX MA­CHI­NAE

Come summon all your de­i­ties
they stand on trial
before a tri­bunal of hu­man­kind
We are but chil­dren to the earth
No matter what they say
we owe it all to her

she is be­au­ti­ful
our fading world to­ni­ght

His­tory bleeds for to­morrow
for us to re­a­lize
and never more follow blind
We offer con­s­ci­ous re­birth
there is no other way
we owe it all to her

she is be­au­ti­ful
our fading world to­ni­ght

So­mewhere close but far away
(the light) where we are all fo­re­ver
All of those who long to stay
(the light) will tear apart and sever

It's time to carry the burden
to rise above all dreams
of aliens and gods
We are but chil­dren to the earth
No matter how you pray
we owe it all to her

so be­au­ti­ful
our dying world to­ni­ght

So­mewhere close but far away,
the light, ob­scu­red in di­sarray
A wi­the­red rose
that sprung and fades to­ni­ght,
watching as they sway…

you know it's now or never

ATTACK MUSIC

It might seem like a lot of fun
to smash the system
but it's not for eve­ry­one
Now you will listen

Could you see if you were blind
and their eyes told you?
And con­fi­ned inside your mind
you draw your own view?

Here comes the master slave
Demand re­spect for tre­a­son
You are my reason
to despise the world!
Di­vi­ded by your claws
When we are kings you will be
ano­ther suit aga­inst the wall
and bang!

What we learn is never free
we walk with evil
But in bliss we tend to be
so for­get­ful

You won't see it craw­ling back
just out of nowhere
and fi­nally when they attack
they've always been here

NINJA

Caught in the wind
are the voices of the damned
They har­bin­ger the coming fray
You will be wise to heed as best you can
or Death em­bra­ces you as prey

You could sing the song of truth,
the silent dirge of honor
or meet your judg­ment in dismay

I could take you any­time
any­where my pre­sence is sub­lime

Or I'll just kill you in your sleep
Just ano­ther point­less life sold cheap
A light that fades away
tur­ning to night from day
and lea­ving here to drift away

I bring forth the end to you
teh ph34r as I come into view
the last thing you will ever see is me
(my eyes)

THROTTLE AND MASK

I left their shel­te­red care and walked
a rogue in total fre­e­dom
to see the world with my own eyes
live by my sword
I joined the fray to find
what I be­lie­ved was in­stant wisdom
but what I got was more than I ever wished for

Hate to bring you down,
to push your face into the ground
but it never is that simple!
Try so hard
to see the shards for what they are…
No, it never will be simple!

So­me­ti­mes emo­tion clouds my sight
as I rejo­ice in life
I know to tre­a­sure my own zest
for I am still young
I let my in­spi­ration
savior me from mun­dane strife
and I refuse to go unheard, my truth unsung

KILLER IN­STINCT

A be­a­ting pulse, a poun­ding heart,
a mil­lion pieces from the start
I never doub­ted for a second
that it would be hard
But the will to be alive
gre­a­ter than any ideals

I be­lieve in you my love, we are above
simple things are not for us, we bleed for lust

Driven by our vi­o­lent past,
ever for­cing us to last,
unbri­dled killer in­stinct
ever stan­ding fast
And so the will to be alive
over­sha­dows any doubt

I be­lieve…

We are he­a­ding for an evo­lu­ti­o­nary cul de sac
as our bre­thren try to take it all back

TEMPUS FUGIT

Silent like a tomb
the city re­a­ches for the sky
I'm left alone here and I can't re­mem­ber why
Lying on a ro­oftop
in a vast garden of con­crete
The si­lence echoes in the streets

See as my eyes stray to pan
across the barren sur­face
as mo­no­li­thic structu­res
tower through the si­lence
All of man's cre­ati­ons
left aban­do­ned wi­thout pur­pose
I am alone yet feel its malice

And while the clear blue mid-day air
is fe­e­ling sli­ghtly aw­k­ward
as shafts of sun­li­ght
stray across my field of view

I find new per­spective
as to­morrow turns today
and in the sky I see
a so­a­ring bird of prey
sta­ring at the trees
I see them all begin to sway
I sense a storm is coming my way

I can barely see as
the sky erupts in light
hell falls all around me,
then sud­denly, it's night…

Then wi­thout a whisper
the at­mosphere is torn
In­stinct is scre­a­ming
for shel­ter from the storm
I can barely see as the sky erupts in light
hell falls all around me,
then sud­denly, it's night…

BLIND DOG PRIDE

Ano­ther night is dra­wing nigh
I feel the spike in my side
to rid us all from this di­se­ase

And though a legion sides with me
and mar­ches on fe­ro­ci­ously
I can't force war to find my peace

I've seen the other side
the one world beyond our dog pride
so­mewhere out­side is evo­lu­tion, stan­ding by

One in a mil­lion's just a drone
amas­sed in crowds you're still alone
the last of its kind is
the one with a mind of its own
This fate of ours is still unk­nown

I look at you and see what I
What I hate so in myself
I urge to va­nquish this from me

And yet despite my open mind
I can not force those who are blind
to open up their eyes and see

I claim no unjust vic­tory
but I am not afraid to see through
the shroud of destiny
Time and law are both my ene­mies
I won't fade away in his­tory
I will mark this land with my be­liefs

I never turned away or ran to hide
I have lived with my own mind as my guide
I never sold my right to decide
it was taken from me

Cour­tesy of the blind dog pride
the eyes of se­e­kers tur­ning wide
lost is he by so­me­one else's side
he who isn't free

I know now my fate is in my mind
and those so­o­thing words
they just drive me blind
I never sold out human kind
It was taken from me!

SOUN­D­TRACK TO THE RE­BEL­LION

(bo­nu­sová skladba na druhém vydání)

in this place we find each other
a tri­bute to the wise
who view with open eyes
expose the lies of our bro­thers
misled and lost be­tween
the sur­face and the screen

We are not alone to defy
we stand and those who push us down will die

Under a blac­ke­ned sky
We light the tor­ches and we hear the sound
of the soun­d­track to the re­bel­lion
We break the si­lence and we make the sound
of the soun­d­track to the re­bel­lion

they sit and suck the tit of power
they claim it for us all
but keep it within walls
these men aim to slowly devour
and they lock you into sleep
while si­lently they reap

They lie! Don't hear their blin­ded words of dread
The phan­toms you fear they put inside your head

It fuels the flames throu­ghout the night
