Track Name: Plains of hesitation
Fearing the abyss
Like a moth to the flame
With a weakened will to exist
Paralyzed by indecision
Will the buzzards pick your bones?
Or will you live?

“On the plains of hesitation…
Qui Ose Gagne
Qui Ose Gagne
On my accord
Sua Sponte are my words

My blood feeds the soil
I reap the wheat

In the battle it’s the cowards who run
When victory was theirs to be won
So be a slave to circumstance
and leave your life to chance
Or be your own lord

Qui Ose Gagne
Qui Ose Gagne
On my accord
Sua Sponte are my words

“On the plains of hesitation
bleach the bones of the countless millions
who, at the Dawn of Victory, sat down to rest and resting died”

Staring in the abyss
Like a moth to a flame
You lack the will to exist
Paralyzed by indecision
Buzzards will pick your bones
Whereas I will live

Further, faster, and fight harder
I display the intestinal fortitude
To fight on
Though I be the lone survivor

Peer into the abyss
Like a moth to a flame
With a weakened will to exist
Paralyzed by indecision
The buzzards will pick your bones
Or will you live?

Great achievements
And stories of the strong
Were built on the
backs of the weak
Without love or pause

Qui Ose Gagne
Qui Ose Gagne
On my accord
Sua Sponte are my words

My blood feeds the soil
I reap the wheat

In the battle it’s the cowards who run
When victory was theirs to be won
So be a slave to circumstance
and leave your life to chance
Or be your own lord.
Track Name: Mainstream for the masses
I have two ears
And I have two sharp eyes
And a pointed tongue to speak
Born with a mind

I decide what’s best for me
I don’t believe most things that I hear and see

Bang your head
For dark art
and dark music
and creations from
Firey souls and the heart, a loaded gun,
Passion for the real
This man kills
with death metal steel

The masses are high
On pop culture, shitty music, news , and lies
Fed fashion and shopping lists
Quietly fearing a
Grinding
Thrashing
Death

Rock
Blast
Thrash
Scream
Fuck you

In this ocean I steer my life
I determine my own destiny
Across the current
Of the doomed mainstream

Rock

Scream
Fuck you

I have two ears
And I have two sharp eyes
And a pointed tongue to speak
Born with a mind

I decide what’s best for me
I don’t eat the shit that they feed to me

For dark art
And dark music
And creations from
Fiery souls and the heart, a loaded gun,
Passion for the real
This man kills
with death metal steel

The people are numb
Incapable of thought,
independent mind and spirits are lost
They think they’re living
Sadly they are not
And their lives will be a
Grinding
Thrashing

Track Name: Suffering
My arms were
Open to sky
Sick with despair
Swallowed by the darkness
And blinding fear

Felt the air rape my skin
Hunger came and burnt within
Alone and seduced by sleep
Is there an exit from this mess?

I don’t learn from pleasure, only pain
In my failures I am saved
Lessons are found in strife
I embrace death to find life

I support pain
I support misery
I encourage suffering
For all human beings
I vote for sorrow, sin,
We never realize what lies within

Deep in the mountains, I’m…
lost in the woods am I
I pushed and I learned, I pushed and I learned
What I couldn’t and what I could

My arms were
Open to sky
Sick with despair
Swallowed by the darkness
And blinding fear
Lost and frozen
Tired, cold
I gained strength
And found my soul

Felt the air rape my skin
Hunger came and burnt within
Alone and seduced by sleep
Is there an exit from this mess?
Doubting nailed me down
Then my thoughts turned around
No surrender in this war
There’s no exit from this mess

Exhale weakness
Breath in strength
All Hail: A new sense of self
Power, immune to doubt,
Win.
I will always win.
Track Name: The poison tree
Amongst a riot of thorns and weeds
A solitary tree
Rises stubbornly from the soil
Tall and imperfect

Reaching for the sky
With its twisted limbs
And choking vines
An abstract beauty

But when the clouds collect
When it’s dark
And the rain falls
You’d swear the tree
Was weeping
Its tears disappearing
In the ground

“Giving Tree”
That’s not me
Fruit to feed
Sweet but poison

I am doomed to attract
Let them down, let them go
I would warn them
But who would I be,
who would I be with?

Roots grow
From graves
Bringing death to life
Tombs on toxic flowers
Shaded with poison
Poisonous leaves
Vines like serpents
Like a noose.
Birds
land
die

Waiting for winter and cold, cold nights
When the trunk is bare
Nothing to see
Nothing to deceive
Just time to myself
To look around, to sleep
Awaking to see
The saplings sprout around me
Nothing changes
The cycle starts anew

“Giving Tree”
That’s not me
Fruit to feed
Sweet but poison
Track Name: Faith in man
All across the earth I have seen
And watched the strong
Exploit the meek
The Human race
Is, at its best,
and most basic,
fucking weak

Man uses love
Man uses loves to control those he needs
And he hates everyone else he sees

Self-interest
Drives the father
to put his daughter on the street
She earns money for the family
Like a piece of fucking meat

All across the earth I have seen
Leaders openly encourage war
Nations sell the bodies of their sons
Like pimps push a whore

Filthy beast born
For submission
Burdened by guilt
And a slave to Death

Faith in man
Is faith in the damned
Black in the heart
And corrupt from the start
Vile every part


Filthy beast born
for submission
Burdened by guilt
A slave to…

…Death across the earth, I have seen
And watched man
Die from greed
They betray their brothers
To get what they need

Man uses love

Man use loves, to control those he needs,
And he hates everyone else he sees
Everyone he sees
Everyone he sees
I hate everyone I see
Track Name: The meaning of life
Are you lost?
Looking for the way?
I’ve found it! I’ve found it!
Don’t follow but listen.
The story of the meaning of your life?
It begins with your death.

First, remember
You were born and you will die.
The clock was ticking since you left the womb
So don’t waste your time
Seize freedom
Everyone is dying like you

Realize
No one’s here to help you
Expect no truth from a master, a map, or clue
There are only blind shepherds
Everyone’s lost
Ask no one else what’s best for you to do

Know
There is no “right” or proper way
No objective good
or person to say
Might makes the law
Be a victor or be a victim

Are you lost?
Looking for the way?
I’ve found it! I’ve found it!
The story of the meaning of your life
It begins with your death

Your bones will crack and fray
Your body will rot

Build yourself
Or you’ll be forged
By the dying machines of others
Bleed for your own values
And pursue your own goals
You will die as you were born
Alone

No, there is no “right” or proper way,
No objective good or person to say
Might makes the law
Be a victor or be a victim
Track Name: Bathe in your tears
Silent angels without mercy descend
On blackened bloody birds bringing certain doom
in the night, in the dark, in the dark
We reign
We reign supreme
Find your home and take your dreams
Kita melihat semua,
We see all, everything

I feed on evil
Consume the weaker man,
You’ll know not safety
As I take you from your land
The devil will drink your blood
but I’ll bathe in your tears
Harvesting souls
I reap your fears

The sky is weeping, it’s coming down
A dark harvester descends,
Silent wings, a hidden hand
Horns sound the start of the end

I’m a hunter and humans are my prey
Closer, quiet, violent, stalking them
You are burning with guilt, I see your heat
Take your fire
And extinguish you

Teeth sink deep as you struggle
Swallow you
Swallow you whole
Wash it down
My cup overfloweth with your tears
Overflows
Here today
Gone tonight

You think you’re violent?
Wait until you meet me
Our hearts are black
and pump a colder blood

We reign
We reign supreme
Find your home, invade your dreams
Kita melihat semua
We see all, everything

The sky is weeping, it’s coming down
A dark harvester descends,
Silent wings, a hidden hand
Horns sound the start of the end
Track Name: Politics inaction
Pretty hair and pretty hands, head buried in the sand,
Ideology and hope pumped at school
Lacking empathy and will to see things through
Instead of taking action they write words
Do you think rhetoric will change the world?
You think you’ll save a life with votes?
Grab your fucking balls and cross the moat

You complain but don’t lift a hand
Afraid
Get your ass on a plane to a foreign land
The world will always be fucked
Take control of a small piece and lift it up

Drinking coffee, whining,
Protesting, waving signs
Changing nothing yet self-satisfied
A bleeding heart and knowledge of facts
Won’t change a thing
If your head’s up your ass

Political Scientist?
Lazy preacher, fuck your politics

Next time you support an “end to poverty”, an “intervention” or war.
Ask yourself why you won’t go there
Come on idealist, what are you waiting for?

Pretty hair and pretty hands, with their heads in the sand
Words are easy, talk is cheap
Be the change
Open your eyes from your sleep
The world will always be fucked
Grab a gun and mop
And clean it the fuck up

You complain but don’t lift a hand
Get your ass on a plane to a foreign land.
Track Name: Wolves to lead
The escape from freedom
We try to hide from ourselves, examining our life,
In examining our life, we panic, withdraw
and feel a sense of terror

Born free,
Everywhere in chains
Man put himself there
To avoid, escape and flee
Responsibility
For living as sheep
Lost, failing to achieve
For being not what he wanted to be

Fuck the sheep
Be a wolf
Independent and free
Follow no one’s lead
Fuck the sheep
Be a wolf
Hunt the sheep of world, lead yourself,
And pity not the weak

The escape from freedom
We try to hide from ourselves, examining our life,
In examining our life, we panic, withdraw
and feel a sense of terror

Born free,
Everywhere in chains
Man put himself there
To avoid, escape and flee
His existential guilt
Living as a slave
Failing to achieve,
For being not what he wanted to be

Born free, man dreams of sheep
Born free, man dreams of sheep
Born free, man dreams of sheep
Born free, man dreams of sheep
Man is a sheep, he hires wolves to lead,
Because man is a sheep

Man hires wolves like me
Because he needs wolves like me
Track Name: Calloused earth
I’ve been trimming the tree,
Pairing down the rotting fruit
And the worms infesting
Will be crushed in my hand
In this garden where I am king,
I’m the wind, the wolf, and vulture
I feed on the living
Consuming them
Devouring their hearts

I find it hard to feel
Emotions in a normal way
Calm and detached
It’s like I’m writing a book,
Lives, turned like a page,
with my bloody hand

Studied with my distant eyes
Felt with my calloused heart
The heart of the problem is
That what I see in you is me

A willingness to serve my self-interest
Makes me feel just like the rest.

Defenestrate, evicting souls
I laugh harder as they go
And then I’m alone
Empty kingdom, quiet throne

Realize that people are sand
Their lives sleeping through the fingers of my hand
I bury my love, I bury my friends
I smell the soil, I smell the end

A willingness to kill with disinterest
I’m the ocean, fire, and wind

Defenestrate, evicting souls
I laugh harder as they fall
And then I’m alone
Empty kingdom, quiet throne

I’m the earth, I hungry,
I need your flesh to make my soil
And your blood to fill my rivers.
So die and feed me
An endless cycle depends on your death
Fertilize the flowers, your corpse is a seed

Well, I am just happy to be alive
The air is sweeter, the sun is brighter when you die
So occupy your feeble mind and waste your rotten body
Feed your lice
Track Name: The realist
Since he crawled from the sea
Ate bananas and swung on trees
Man has always swung a stick
To meet his needs

Dance monkey, monkey dance
Fling shit, exploit the land

Competition, animosity, and fear
Cloud our vision
Domination in a system
Power truly is man’s religion

Hope for peace
Shake your indignant fist
And fantasize of an end
To desperation, friction and blight
We’re too deep in loathing and short of sight

Man fights for flags, he fights for freedom,
But in reality, man is the demon

You’re a fool
If you think the law protects you
You’re naïve
If you think a savior is due
Don’t expect rights
Don’t pray for power, invoke might

At every level
In every form
Brutality is the norm
Man versus man, tribe versus clan
Nations devour the land

Fight monkey, monkey fight
Spread your disease, spread your version of right

Competition, hate and fear
Cloud our vision
Domination in a system
Power truly is man’s religion
You’re a fool
If you think the law protects you
You’re naïve
If you think a savior is due
Don’t expect mercy
Don’t pray for power, invoke might

At every level
In every form
Brutality is the norm
Ask yourself who writes history
It’s the monkey who wins

I’m sorry but if history has shown
Societies come and go
Nothing ever changes
Chaos is the norm
There will be no end to war
