Track Name: There's no such thing as Hope
There’s no such thing as hope
A star drowning in nothingness
A world thrown into the abyss
Forever floating
An Eternity spent in vain
Perception of futility kills all reasons
What is left to believe in?
Let ashes rain from the heavens
like death reigns all being
There’s no such thing as hope….
Cease all striving
Even the new gods are dead
The nihilistic chants sang them to their grave
A dirge to shake the pillars of the universe
When all worlds crumble
And the fog clears
Life shows its hidden grimace
And the mind can vegetate in true freedom
Perception of futility kills all reasons
What is left to believe in?
Let ashes rain from the heavens
like death reigns all being
There’s no such thing as hope
Track Name: Uprise Part II
Uprise Part II
millennia in oppression
taught mankind how to bow
not to question, not to speak its mind
just accept world's eternal order
and although we finally awoke
tried to grasp power for the masses
still the few reign in the shadows
with their preaching of the darkness
Raise your fists up high
yell a martial cry
Uprise above the skies
Strike off your puppet strings
with a rebellious song to sing
Uprise above all kings
Destroy this book so flawed
unmask this religious fraud
Uprise above all gods
When injustice surpasses
Fuel the conflict of classes
Uprise all you masses
the fear of change is infinite
and so the shadows reign with fear
fuel the primitive, small minds
to distract from their power
call them priests, call them nazis
call them 1%, call them greedy fucking bastards
call them cowards, conservative power-lusting snakes
they're all afraid of you, the critical masses
For when we demask their agenda
when we rise up to change the world
to take back ours and nature's dignity
It is them who will be torn to pieces
Track Name: A Lesson in basic human Empathy
Lesson in basic human empathy

Judgment based on action
not on colour, race or sex
no harming of sentient beings
but respecting life
help where help is needed
No condemnation of the innocent
take responsibility for your wealth
that is built on the backs of others
Act only according to that maxim whereby you can, at the same time, will that it should become a universal law.
If you can’t understand this lesson in basic human empathy – you can fuck off you cunt
Stand up against injustice
indifference is unacceptable
Defend those who cannot
Only the weak do not protect
Walk a mile in the other one’s shoes
Prejudice is for the numb
Don’t let angst reign your mind
Fear was never a good judge

For too long the hateful and the small minds have dominated the public discussion
It is time to let reason and empathy dictate our social conscience again
And we have built enough bridges and tried to show understanding
It is time to fight back with all we have
For too long greed for money and power reigned humanity
It is time to show some decency again
For too long the populist have distracted us with their fear of the alien
It is time to fuck off, you cunts
Track Name: Monuments
With the void grasping our hearts
and nothingness clouding our skies
we seek to build monuments for ourselves
monuments our departure won’t destroy
With swords in hands and warcries filling our chests
we stand proud in the face of this last quest
to vanish into nothingness with hearts ablaze
the only hope that our cries still echo in distant days
Monuments of flesh, Monuments of the mind
still all bound to fall by the empire of infinity
and though our hearts burn with the creator’s fire
nothing can shroud the fear of death
To accept the void
to embrace death
to fear the emptiness
but to leave some trace
Raise monuments to endure the void
that will echo your warcry in coming decades
raise them from flesh and mind
not from stone or cross
When the blackness engulfs
and takes away all illusions of fear or peace
a whispered warcry on our lips
roar so future decades can pridefully sing
With the void grasping our hearts
and nothingness clouding our skies
we seek to build monuments for ourselves
monuments our departure won’t destroy
With swords in hands and warcries filling our chests
we stand proud in the face of this last quest
to vanish into nothingness with hearts ablaze
the only hope that our cries still echo in distant days
Track Name: The Iron Eagles still fly
The Iron Eagles still fly

There are rules to protect
to save and to prevent
If you’d sticked to them
I wouldn’t blame this on you

Out of a twisted sense of almightiness
you found a way to pass these rules
and now look what you have done
accepted the risk and now they’re dead – this is plain and simple murder
You set the world afire
for 346 innocent
all for money and power
thought this would be your end
But the Iron Eagles still fly
You knew, you knew, you knew
Fuck you, Fuck you, Fuck
In what sick world do you still exist
in what sick world are murderers not locked away
money and power keeps you in place
I still think you should rot in your guts
But still after millennia to learn
gold still rules the world
and if you have enough
you can murder and still sip Champaign
You set the world afire
for 346 innocent
all for money and power
thought this would be your end
But the Iron Eagles still fly
Track Name: Radical Decency
Poor and rich
divided by chance
eternal war between the classes
crowns became stock prices
gold still rules the masses
not wisdom, not compassion
fear of change is immanent
don’t even dare to dream
where is it written
that few can live in abundance
but the creating backs
are broken by the weight
where is it written
that wealth must be focused
that we rather allow the few to live in exaggeration
than everyone in peace
Burn down every palace
Of wealth and decadence
they enrichened themselves
time and time and time again

Burn down every fortress
Of the forever yesterday’s
they denied you justice
time and time and time again
Think the unthinkable
nothing is too absurd when it comes to living
Challenge the status quo
nothing is written in stone
Wealth can be distributed
without the world to collapse
Nothing will change
if we suppress ideas for a better world
Why is it unthinkable
to dream of justice
There would be enough
But who already has wants more
Why do we blindly follow
people without compassion
money still equals power
when power should be in the hands of the people
Practice radical decency!
Proletarians of all countries, unite!
Not saying that it worked in the past
But neither does today
It's time to reasses our values
it's time to practice some radical decency!
