01. Karma

Music by Mark Jansen, Coen Janssen, Simone Simons
Lyrics by Mark Jansen
Dominus sum rerum gestarum mearum
Heresque sum rerum omnium a me gestarum

Ortus ex
Natus ex
Meis factis

Sum coniunctus cum meis gestis
Meis gestis sum affirmatus

Tale monacho revolvendum est
Adiutus his vivo


02. Monopoly On Truth

Music by Isaac Delahaye, Mark Jansen, Simone Simons
Lyrics by Mark Jansen, Simone Simons
Nos docti, pensantes
Sed non semper veridici

At the zenith of wisdom
No defying myself
To the point of reaction
You propose and I dispose

I see what you mean
It's clear, what you say
The truth isn't just a derivative of your views
Truth is a fiction of your views

These are my thoughts
No discussion
My righteous plan

Just think it over now
Another point of view
It's time we realize our errs
Where is it leading to if nobody sees it
There's never an absolute

Nos docti
Sed non semper veridici

I can be so enchanting
With words beset in gold
Your senseless demanding
You propose and I dispose

This is the way
No discussion
In my life

You're in denial

Can we trust all the facts and believe that the fancied wise are just and needed?
Do we want to rely on the views of the righteous ones who are succeeding?
If you look all around and you see all the things that are not meant to be
Then you know it's time to let them go

Your fury can no longer stand
This hauteur will come to an end
Looking for leftover friends is in vain
You'll be alone again

No more refusal
Face it, slow down

It is time for renewal
And expect no miracles
Expect no miracles when you're in an endless fall
No regrets if you're leaving
You're a true deceiver
Accept the here and now
Or regret will end up...

Mask of justice, shield of menacing strength
Will not bend, only break

Can't we respect, can't we neglect
No respecting so neglecting
Those who are suffering in need of help?
Those who suffer, needing our help
You are the one I wouldn't like to become
You are not one I would like to become
Not at all in the end

Hear our calling
Carry me slowly
In the depths of your life
Fear the thunder
Free me from barren fields
And grey thunder lies
Semblance falling
Under that grand façade
The truth loves to hide

Can we trust all the facts
And believe that the fancied wise
Are just and needed?
Do we want to rely on the views
Of the righteous ones who are succeeding?
If you look all around and you see
All the things that are not meant to be
Then you know it's time to let them go
To let them go

Nos docti
Sed plus scimus
Non spernentes
Quod dicunt alii


03. Storm The Sorrow

Music by Coen Janssen, Simone Simons
Lyrics by Simone Simons
Along the way I find myself to be confined within me
No place for any other's mind to interfere
To grasp the meaning of it all, to overcome my limits
And dance away from any void and empty tones

Just tell me why
Just tell me how I can survive this time

Believe yourself and look away from all that's right within you
Leave all your worries at the door and drift away
I've tried to peer into the core but could not storm the sorrow
My hollow heart has bled me dry, left me to stray

Another time
Without a trace
Condemn me now
Send me to hell for I'm already failing

Intertwine the lines that swim beneath the dark
Realize the pain we live in
Demonize the need we reel in
No, in my memories I'll dig deep enough to know
Centuries of dreams unending
Another me that yielded tears when someone had betrayed

No time should ever go to waste, it's not that complicated
You're free to live your life at ease, no more restraints
No need for shadows on your way that try to steal your laughter
Your light will drive them all away, be confident

Will I refrain? Can I repent? Will you be there?
Erase the page for I'm alone and ailing

So - This is my life
And it can't break me down
Go - I will decide
Who can come in
And heal my disease
Burn it - In flames
Kill it - And maim
Why can't you see that you need to be freed

Intertwine the lines beneath the dark
Every bit of pain we're feeling
Every other solemn life
No, in the memories you will find somehow
There used to be a dream unending
No more need to be alone


04. Delirium

Music by Coen Janssen, Isaac Delahaye, Simone Simons
Lyrics by Simone Simons
Black was the night when I did surrender
I did give in to my weakening sight
Now that I'm empty my dreams once were many
Soul's bitter cry to unleash the divine

When you think there's no way out
And all you see collides
Hope will in the end chase all your fears away

Fighting the source was not recommended
Trails of a wish were the hope to survive
Skins full ablazing release crystal gazing
All of it led to a deeper demise

When you think there's no way out
And no one comprehends
Hope will show your smile again

What I left behind
Another night
Of weary dreams, unravelling
What's been left behind
Another time
Where days of late are far away

Far away

Losing my reasons,
No lies to believe in
Left the obscure to
The means of escape

Core has been shaken,
There is no more pain to break me
Time has commenced and I long to awake

When you think there's no way out
Leave everything behind
You can live your life anew

Dark days behind me
Won't ever break me now

All that I left behind
Another night
Of weary dreams, unravelling
What's been left behind
Another time
Where days of late are far away

Far away

Just another night
In another time


05. Internal Warfare

Music by Mark Jansen, Isaac Delahaye, Coen Janssen
Lyrics by Simone Simons
Would anybody dare to know the answer?
Would anybody dare to face the truth?
We bide the time awaiting our answers
To our kind

We're all in this apocalypse together
The horror we so feared can't be undone
We all remove allegiance to disaster
Tragic crime

Life we used to know
Ends where silence comes to us forever
Night will soon bestow
Justice on a day that never ends

The piercing eyes of bullets' shine run faster
Than peace and understanding can conceive
To use and to deceive to teach a lesson
Cross the line

I'm a true believer
A soldier with a gun
I shall swipe the earth clean
Won't take long

Te deplangemus - Haud resistentes - A te vexati - Manebimus

I must trust my instinct
And act on his behalf
My ship is full with water
But won't go down


06. Requiem For The Indifferent

Music by Mark Jansen, Isaac Delahaye
Lyrics by Mark Jansen
When silence betrays

We've tried to find a reason
To go on and cross the line
Tell me
How can we justify the act
We've tried to look around and
Search for ways to shift the blame
The escape
From moral sense we drift away
When we can't have it all
We want it all

With money segregating
The centers are degrading
The devastation
We feared we'd befall
But soon we'll realize that
We can get reunited
This could apply to us all, after all
We'll never find our peace of mind
If we won't leave the past behind
Make up your mind

When silence betrays

We spilled the tears for wretches
And for human sacrifice
Look at them
We've pushed them through the tiny holes
Yet still we know we're all
Responsible

Counting down

The road to perdition
Driving fast and without vision

Parva notes circum te
Incorrupta nitidaque
Vide, gusta, senti, bibe
Formam ex eis captes

We're failing we're ailing
Collapse is now drawing nearer
Derailing, the end is nigh

Uravelled, dishevelled
The answer's never been clearer
Unlevelled we're standing by

When we finally find the reason to exist
We will be able to appreciate the fundamental gifts

Drown, bury, erase
All that is dividing us
Down, parry, negate
All that's keeping us from growth
Feel the energy enclosed within us

Try to keep on searching for the meaning of our lives
Find the only values that can help us in our strife
Keep on searching and be ready when the tides are high

Try to find the philosopher deep within you
Trigger and motivate all that matters along your way
Seek and find the answers

Wake up your troubled mind


07. Anima

Music by Mark Jansen
-Instrumental-


08. Guilty Demeanor

Music & lyrics by Mark Jansen
Whenever stories are prescribed
That we could never obelise
Then how could anyone supply a doubt?

I take you at your word

But the tale could have a flaw
And if you find yourself in awe
Then you'll only hunger for the truth

Veritas numquam vincitur ipsa
Ne quae dicuntur imprudenter credas

When I'm crucified, taunted and denied
I'll stand strong, with my back against the wall

At times it seems so very hard
All that we learned we must discard
That everyone you'd ever trust
Has lied

When I'm crucified, haunted and defied
I belong to the few that died for all

You cannot question or defy
Or you'll find out the hard way why
You'd better run before you walk alone

Veritas numquam vincitur ipsa
Ne quae dicuntur imprudenter credas
Sed tua teneas


09. Deep Water Horizon

Music by Mark Jansen, Isaac Delahaye, Coen Janssen
Lyrics by Simone Simons
We have to wait
For a dying day
Full of black decay
We'll find a way
To become aware
Breathing tainted air
We change the lanes
Every second of our lives

Lost in our minds
We'll taste the water's brine
All for the silver shine
Can't stay the same
Should end this bloody game
Bare in the venom rain
To fuel the greed to feed the hungered has its price

There's the feeling once again
The day where black and white began
Await the ending of our everlasting violence
We've all been healing from the pain
From all the misery and constraint
We're inhaling fumes again
So don't deny it

Lies will unwind
The verity you'll find
Upon the moor resigned
Primary gain
Comes with a thousand slain
All for the greater vain
Without the horror causing hazard, we'll survive

Whatever lies ahead
We will face tomorrow
When every all delusions end

All of this was foreseen
Give in
Have to break the chain of grief

You
Born to be free
You decide
All are free
Time to change
Nothing or all
The clock is racing on
The pace is very strong
Our borrowed time is gone
The dawn of sharing all our powers has arrived

We're all inhaling fumes again
And there the black and white will end


10. Stay The Course

Music by Mark Jansen, Isaac Delahaye, Simone Simons
Lyrics by Mark Jansen
Stay the course
Unregarded what the others think
Follow through your goals
Stay the course
Be impassive what all the others want
Go your own way

Stand focused, stay strong

Stay the course
And regardless what the critics say
Seek your golden road
Stay the course
Be hard and fast
Reach out, achieve your goals
Chase your own dreams

Stay faithful, prolong

Veils that cover the sacred treasures
That no one dares imbibe
Those proclaiming different views
Were long ago proscribed
I should warn you, it's deadly to abide
Instead I taught you to bow and toe the line

Fear is what you breathe
Disagree
Guidance what you need
For all the chances you will never see
Trust in me

Notice the anomalies
Erase them from your memory

Fight dismay
Deny the disarray
Just keep them far away from you and fight
With all your might

Stay the course
Show no remorse
Terminate all that deters

I should warn you to never compromise
Instead I want you believing the disguise


11. Deter The Tyrant

Music by Isaac Delahaye, Mark Jansen
Lyrics by Mark Jansen
Shield the monocrat and
Better fulfill his needs and wield his sordid means
Thank you for all, torture and maul
Which only keep it running

We condemn disruption
We should fight for liberation now
Liberate us now

Breed the egoist and
Give him then all he needs and feed his vicious greed
Than you, we call for chaos
And leave us all alone, resigned

We condemn corruption
We should fight for abdication now
Abdicate us now

When an action bids retraction to begin
You will feel what it's like to suffer for your sins
We will commence

Yield the ruffian then
Give him the gall that he needs and field his children now
For they'll recall, once and for all
This farce is everlasting

We condemn suppression
We should fight this aberration now
Fight suppression now

When an action bids retraction to begin
You will feel what it's like to suffer for your sins
Temptation has destroyed so many brilliant minds
Fate pays the deviant with agony in kind

The lies you've spread
For blood you've shed
You'll have to justify
Enslaved to reign
Heartless, insane
You'll have to pay the price

Words fail now
The truth is hard to comprehend

Vile secrets were kept in the dark
Avoiding social unrest

Wild efforts to gag dissidents
Will ever fail in the end

We condemn aggression
We could find our destination now
Find it here somehow

We will commence
Your chance is now


12. Avalanche

Music by Mark Jansen, Isaac Delahaye, Simone Simons
Lyrics by Simone Simons
Feels like living in a dream
From which I cannot wake
Voices leading me astray,
Cannot hide

Feels like I am growing weaker
I can't deny
Whatever's hurting me
Won't leave me
Here at ease
And I can see your secrecy
Has gone away

In another time
You left me
For someone else
Who'd serve your every need
And set your
World apart
The strain is now
Unbearable,
Turned me
To stone

For all the hardship in my way
Hold on, move on

Hear me!
How hide your face while you carry on 'till the grief comes
Save your soul from the downfall

To give and take was not an option
You had to run and sweep it all away
Leave not a heart to mend
That day I cast so far behind, I'm moving on

For all the stones thrown in my face
Hold on, move on

See me!
Now hide your face while
You carry on 'till the grief comes
Save your soul from the downfall

Feels like living in a dream from which I cannot wake
I don't wanna hide
They are tearing me apart
You cannot pray for laughter
You cannot wake

Degenerate the love and hate
We should always ever keep in mind
Our tragedy's not far behind
Kneeling in disaster

Through all the doubt I can't allay
Hold on, move on
Now
As it was meant to be
Suffering's a travesty

Obliterate our past mistakes
We should never lose sight or we'll find
A travesty renewed in time
Chasing ever faster

Feels like living in a dream from which I cannot wake
I don't wanna hide
They are tearing me apart
You cannot pray for laughter
I cannot decide
I cannot wake
I cannot pray

Feels like living in a dream
From which I cannot wake
Voices leading me astray
Cannot pray


13. Serenade Of Self-Destruction

Music by Mark Jansen, Isaac Delahaye, Coen Janssen
Lyrics by Simone Simons
Never could we see
What lies deeper
Seeming that our view
Can't be changed
Deciding where to go
And believe in your disaster
Deleting a future untold

This is the final deceiver
This is the devil in me
Expecting deeds in the manking
Will show no final relief

Ever would we dance
With the reaper
Seething in a monstrous cage
Ideas meant to placate
When meeting your disaster
Are only for a desperate fool

Destructive thoughts to mislead us
Can come from deep underground
Believing sources unbroken
Will tear the legion apart

Will we be forever free as we unchain our souls
From life forever
You are just a slave to the dust
Another time, where you and me will be freed
With one more last endeavour
You cannot escape your fate now

No

Try me, don't deny me
Please embrace me in your peace
I want to fly into the bright
Would you please guide my last goodbye
Why won't you lie with me, my light's ending
On a night when I find, I'll take my final flight

Now come and see divinity where night turns day
So far away from heaven
You will never earn my trust
Provoke the need, give word to deed,
And dive into another god-like atmosphere
You will never find your way out

No

I'd rather die
Than breathe in my shame
They'll know my name
All hell in flames
For our faith
We proudly die
For it we would die
For our sovereign
All hell wil arise
Hell will surely rise

We'll serve our cause
In earning reward
Earning our reward
Collision of skies
The ocean wept dry
Every ocean dry

Another's desperation flying through the emptiness
As my degradation throws me out the of line

Take the final flight
Into the serenade forever lost in time


14. Nostalgia

Music & lyrics by Mark Jansen
Dying slowly, all alone
Hope is gone, the seeds were sown
Another day without a touch
Another dawn with only dusk

But sometimes it rewinds me
To the bliss of languid dreams
To my precious memories
To the mysteries of all I'd never seen

Dying slowly day by day
And every colour fades to gray
I walk the walls of Hell's abyss
With every trail, I will persist

Why can't you hear me?
Release me
I'm forgotten and buried

And sometimes it rewinds me to
The innocence that pulls me through

And sometimes it rewinds me
To the place where the fire's burning
And sometimes I can daydream
That I'm free
But it's just a reverie


15. Twin Flames

Music & lyrics by Mark Jansen
You're eternal, my love
For me, you're all there ever was
Every limit overcome
As we're entangled, we are one

Words are left unsaid burning in my head
Now I only wish I could hold you again
Being there with you I feel at ease
Being there with you is all

I ever need
My one belief
We share a common energy
I've flown afar beyond the sea
To find the other side of me
I've waited long and patiently
To find the one to balance me
To live without dubiety
This is my covenant to thee

Life feels empty, my love
It pains me so to give you up

Sentiments untold never to unfold
Now I only wish I could hold you again
Being there with you I'm whole again
Being there with you is all

Ever need, my one belief

You're all I need
My one belief
The winds of time will carry me
To live without dubiety
Don't let this ever end

We've flown afar
Beyond the sea
To find each other finally
We've waited long and patiently
To build a bridge between dualities
