01. Rise And Ruin

Music by Nils Weise
"Instrumental"


02. Nobody Leaves

Music by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann & Tobias "Tobi" Kersting
Lyrics by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann
They cut away
The sickness
Out of all of us
They wash away
The pain
Wash it away

Now everyone
Is dead
There's nothing
To regret
As the world goes
Down the drain

Into the pit
Inot the fire
They shall burn
Into the pit
They fall after all

They roar
Without voice
Stalking like cats
And read out
Their note
That leaves 'em
No choice
Between fire
And rope
They run
Like the rats
But nobody leaves
Easton Hope

Defenseless -
I'm broken
The future lies
Under a stormy sky
I never thought
It'd come so far
Come hold me
And love me
For it may be
The last time
In our life
That we feel the warmth

You all wear
My crown
For I will take
You down
Into my agony
This ground
Will be my grave
Forsaken
And depraved
This is our destiny
This night
I'm burning
My love tonight
Inside she's dying
In cleansing light

You have to pay
The ferryman
I bring deliverance
I make the way
I paid the ferryman
Ten years ago

They roar
Without voice
Stalking like cats
And read out
Their note
That leaves 'em
No choice
Between fire
And rope
They run
Like the rats
But nobody leaves
Easton Hope

Solo: Tobi

Praise and serve
The machine
And choke
In it's steam

They roar
Without voice
Stalking like cats
And read out
Their note
That leaves 'em
No choice
Between fire
And rope
They run
Like the rats
But nobody leaves
Easton Hope

Praise and serve
The machine
And choke
In it's steam

Lead: both


03. Goodbye

Music & lyrics by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann
Desolete and obsolete
A figure on the crest
A bleeding heart in nothingness
That is never gonna rest

Nobody hears the calling
Forcing me to be on my own
Nobody'll see me falling
Far away from hope and my home

Hold my hand
Look into my eyes
Now there's time to say

Goodbye - Alone in my darkness
I cry - Tears of sand
And die - Remember my last
Goodbye


04. Easton Hope

Music & lyrics by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann
He had a
Faithful masterplan
And a friend below
One of the kind
That leaves
Different traces
In the snow

All that's not
Friend is foe
For he's the one
To ease the pain
Believe in deliverance
Watch the world
Become insane

Our fortune
Is turning
As we're opening
The oldest seals
The whole world
Will be burning
Until I'll have
My fate revealed

We were deceived
By his masterplan
And his friend below
One of the kind
That leaves
Different traces
In the snow

To him even
Friend is foe
For he's the one
To seize the pain
Death means deliverance
And resistance is in vain

Night falls on Easton Hope
My light is shining as the last
Night falls on Easton Hope
A fading memory from the past

Our fortune
Is turning
As we're opening
The oldest seals
The whole world
Will be burning
Until I'll have
My fate revealed

Night falls on Easton Hope
My light is shining as the last
Night falls on Easton Hope
A fading memory from the past

Watch you step
As you stray
And walk through
The darkness that
Used to be our home
The fate of us all just
Lies in the hands of
A name on the
Gravestone

And the poet dies

Our time runs out and
The world just keeps
Turning and turning
And spinning around
What keeps us going
As our love is
Burning and
Burning down
To the ground

Stay weak and follow
(In)to the depths of hell
Live your live so hollow
In a freezing shell

Night falls on Easton Hope
My light is shining as the last
Night falls on Easton Hope
A fading memory from the past


05. Welcome Liberty

Music by Nils Weise & Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann
Lyrics by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann
We are the fist
Of the fallen ones
The demise of
This lost nation
The loss of aspiration
We're on a path
Far beyond our fate
Knee-deep in the dead
Cold inside and
Mad from hate
There's no forgiveness
And we'll pay the price
Nothingness regains
Territory lost to vice
Once everyone was
Free in this land
Now a thousand
Year old legacy
Gives way
To seas of sand

All you
All man in the dark
You never saw
The light of day
Never were alive

Welcome liberty
All life is changing
No more unity
In a world
Rearranging

The threat is gone
But will we find
A place to leave
The pain behind?
Faces change
And so do the names
Just the sorrow
Stays the same
and day by day
I look into
What is left of
Good thoughts
In their heads
Between anger and hate
There's nothing left
No salvation
Everything inside is dead

All you
All man in the dark
You never saw
The light of day
Never were alive

Welcome liberty
All life is changing
No more unity
In a world
Rearranging

One for all
And all for one
Two stand tall
While all is gone
Three times we had
To be the night
For there's just one way
To reach the light

Solo: Seeb

Welcome liberty
All life is changing
No more unity
In a world
Rearranging


06. All These Dark Years

Music by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann, Nils Weise & Lars
Lyrics by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann & Lars
I lost my heart on the Eastern shore
To a whisper on the wind
And all that I knew was no more
Did I reach my journey's end?

All alone her fire's dying
Somewhere far away
Will I break and give up trying
Or burn another day?

I wasted half my life
But all I ever wanted
Was a clearer view of myself
I broke my back with all the things
That I considered
And now there's nothing left of it

And the ashes of fathers
Now cover the track
In a land where fortune is borrowed
In there days where all luck
Is just leaving the sad
In the air just thoughts full of sorrow

Through all these dark years
Full of grief, pain and fears
We knew our fate is linked
'Till we're ashes in the wind

Another darkness, another repose
Is what I yield to thee
Don't fear the veil nor my cold embrace
For it will set you free

And the ashes of fathers
Now cover the track
In a land where fortune is borrowed
In there days where all luck
Is just leaving the sad
In the air just thoughts full of sorrow

Through all these dark years
Full of grief, pain and fears
We knew our fate is linked
'Till we're ashes in the wind

Solo: Tobi

Through all these dark years!
Through all these dark years!
Through all these dark years!


07. Nothing Remains

Music by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann
Lyrics by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann & Lars
Solo: Tobi

Menacing black clouds
Raise misgivings
And loom over us
And the story begins
From the start
Nothing remains,
Nothing stay's,
Nothing ever
Will change
Even death
Can not keep us apart
These... Shades...
Even hide the sun
Leader follow leaders
Misdeeds can't be undone

All that man has built
Lands of faith
And guilt will fall
Cause nothing remains
Money, sin and lust
All this turns to dust
They fall
And nothing remains

A single black corbie
Still sings it's song
For me and lives...
The world is turning
So fast
A deafening silent cry
And I still wonder
Why we live
The world is
Turning so fast
Turned out to be dead
I'm burning
My love tonight
Seh's dying
In cleansing light
Oh... No... Through we
Knew it's part
Of the game

It seemed so mandatory
But who can take the
Blame?

All that man has built
Lands of faith
And guilt will fall
Cause nothing remains
Money, sin and lust
All this turns to dust
They fall
And nothing remains

A last warm sense
Is dying into emptiness
It's just a follow up
Of things we left for dead

The world is turning
People in search
of the light
Our homes are burning
As we stay the last
Falling star in the night
Fade with the first light
Of day

Solo: Tobi

All you,
All men in the dark
You never saw
The light of day
You never were alive

All that man has built
Lands of faith
And guilt will fall
Cause nothing remains
Money, sin and lust
All this turns to dust
They fall
And nothing remains

Seven hundred
Years of light...
On the seventh day
They fall
Let the day that will
End their bloodline
Be the last for us all

The world is turning
People in search
of the light
Our homes are burning
As we stay the last
Falling star in the night
Fade with the first light
Of day
Fade with the first light
Of day breaks
And nothing remains

In the light of the day


08. Requiem

Music & lyrics by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann
Watching all these empty faces
Empty is what I've become
Everything just lonely places
Everything since you have gone

The rain pours down on me
And it will when I'm back in
People in black shake my hand
But I can't even feel my skin

Life became and endless struggle
That tears me apart
Living means to live for
But for what without a heart

On the window there's a fingerprint
I watch it 'till the light grows dim
All my tears they fall to the floor
In a home that you will roam no more

Like the rain I fall from the heights to the ground
Like the sun I go down unnoticed without sound
Every new day is worse than the night was before
I will always remember
What this requim stands for


09. We Are Pirates

Music & lyrics by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann
A black sky above, our kingdom beneath
Die in the waves or live on you knees

Three trials before you leave the shore:
Mastering the sword,
Learn the art of thievery
And find treashure galore

Get a ship and crew of three
And search the foreign lands
And when the wind of hell embrace thee
You'll gain the idol of many hands

A black sky above, our kingdom beneath
Die in the waves or live on you knees

Come, raise the flag of the fallen
We reign the storm and the seas
And live our lives on the brink of death
We're pirates... And we are free

Prove you courage and touch
The gruesome winged devil
Trust the navigator's head
For all the rum and grog
Don't forget to revel
For tomorrow you could be dead

And beware of falling in love at all
Or you heart will beat inside a chest
'guess you figured it out - what I recall 's
Another story from another quest

A black sky above, our kingdom beneath
Die in the waves or live on you knees

Come, raise the flag of the fallen
We reign the storm and the seas
And live our lives on the brink of death
We're pirates... And we are free

Solo: Tobi
Solo: Majk Moti
Solo: Tobi
Solo: Majk Moti
Solo: both

Come, raise the flag of the fallen
We reign the storm and the seas
And live our lives on the brink of death
We're pirates... And we are free


10. The Black Heart

Music & lyrics by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann
Now you all know
The worlds that echo back at me
One world - no future
We will bring them to their knees

The walls are falling
We'll never surrender
The walls are falling
The downfall of splendour

When there's nothing left to lose
And the sun won't shine
On one of us again
We'll throw away
Our shattered dreams
Burning all the bridges to the past

And there's nothing left to lose
And the sun won't shine
On one of us gain
And we throw away
Our Shattered dreams
Burning all the bridges to the past

Without lies or belief
Without need to conceive
Without chance to restart
We're sharing the black heart

Now they are gone
No words that echo back at me
One world - no futhure
It brings us all to our knees

And we see now nothing's sacred
As the fire takes it all
To this day our lives are wasted
No one cares as minkind falls

Without lies or belief
Without need to conceive
Without chance to restart
We're sharing the black heart


11. Of Downfall And Decline

Music by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann & Nils Weise
Lyrics by Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann & Lars
Silence lies over the town
Smoke and dust everywhere you
Look around
We both stand on the hill
Where once the old one stood
And look over the place that once
Was a symbol for the good

We brought darkness,
Downfall and death
A thousand souls in the fire
We were puppets
And fools in this mess
But put an end to the liar

Now all is done
We´re the ones that prevailed
All of the hope is gone
Now all is gone
We´re the ones that have failed
All of our work is done

Ashes trickle
Through my fingers
A fateful ruin
Is everything´ that lingers
A single doll I saved
A silent withness, well/behaved
I will keep you in loving memory
And the sun goes down

Now all is done
We´re the ones that prevailed
All of the hope is gone
Now all is gone
We´re the ones that have failed
All of our work is done

Solo: Tobi

We are the hearts
That remain
Easton Hope
We'll never
See you again
We are the hearts
That remain
Easton Hope
We'll never
See you again

All we believed in
All that we lived for
All of the hope
Is forever lost now
