01. Living Weapon

Music by John Laux
Lyrics by John Kevill
Open Fire!

Speeding like a bullet
High velocity
Dealing out death with cutting edge technology

An agent of the government
Their orders absolute
They decide who lives or dies deciding who I shoot-

You're next!

Lazer-guided weapons
A storm of molten lead
The cutting edge of science is the sciences of death-

We strike!

Peace agreements shot to pieces
In a sudden flash
All around you burns to ash

Resocialized
Now I have no fear
Hiding right behind you
But you won't see me there

Infrared vision
I'll hunt you day and night
My orders are to murder and I've got you
In my sights

Living Weapon
Now I have become
Living Weapon

Open fire!

Drive the foe out of hiding
In the open they are slaughtered
Rounding up the population
Wives and children, sons and daughters
Stand facing the firing squad
With orders to be executed
A sudden, blinding flash
All around you burns to ash!

I am chained to the gun
Living weapon
What have I become?
Living! Weapon!

Living Weapon!


02. Shattered Like Glass

Music by John Laux
Lyrics by John Kevill
Hanging from a noose
Wrapped tightly around my neck
The sentence passed in haste
The verdict incorrect

Hangman ties the blindfold
Life flashes before my eyes
I speak my last words
Why must I die?

Trapped here in this bedroom
As the cancer eats away at me
Each and every day, I am withering away
Undergoing chemotherapy

Disease consumes my body
The cure consumes my mind
Put me out of my misery
Just let me die

Screams of the dying
The silence of the dead
You won't last
Shattered like glass

Screams of the dying
The silence of the dead
Nothing lasts
Shattered like glass

Thrown through the front window
A thousand sudden lacerations
Injured and disfigured
Life becomes damnation

Cornered like an animal
I struggle to break free
Cannot face the horror
Of my own mortality

We are falling into early graves

Help me, I am dying
And I cannot see the light
Icy hands of death reach out
And pull me into the night

Nothing ever lasts
You won't last
The long silence begins
You've been shattered


03. Wake Up... Destroy

Music by Adam Carroll
Lyrics by John Kevill
Bodies lying in the streets
And they're trampling over me
State of emergency
The city's gone insane

Massive scale riots
To rise against injustice
There stands the monument
It will come crashing down

Now there is no law
Wake up... destroy

Loot and pillage
Taking what you please
Commencing of sacreligion
Denying those in need

Chaos takes command
Hands clench into fists
Wake up... destroy
Rise!

Martial law, advancing shield wall
Keeping order with an armored fist
This uprising must be contained
They will be neutralized... by force

Now protestors fight the law
A battle in the streets
Lashing out with tooth and claw
Incendiary bombs

Containment has failed
They march on city hall
The wild, swirling masses
Are breaking down the law

No one truly wins
Reign of terror begins
Wake up... destroy


04. Future Ages Gone

Music by Adam Carroll
Lyrics by John Kevill
Creating a better machine
Rendering ourselves obsolete
Will science betray us at last?
The age of man fades into the past

Ever pressing forward
To a new and unseen dawn
No turning back
The future age is gone..

Gone!

Higher intelligence, created in our place
Progress that disconnects us from human ways
A cybernetic future, Living synthetic life
Conscious becomes a signal, trampled by the march of time

Time!

We have crossed the threshold
Of a new and unseen dawn
Lost what could have been
In the future ages gone...

Future ages gone!

Creating a better machine
Rendering ourselves obsolete
Science found its singularity
That's taken away all that's left of me


05. Savagery

Music by Adam Carroll
Lyrics by John Kevill
Life in a civilized society
Can't you see that it has made you weak?
You wouldn't survive in the world alone
A life without hardship is all that you've ever known

Return to primitive ways
Ruling with might
Kill or be killed
Fight or flight!

Live from the land
Obey no command
I have no master
I have only the strength to kill and subdue my prey

Stalking you down, day after day
Baring my teeth, raising my spear
The call of the wild has cut away all the fear

Cut by stone
Tearing at the carcass
Stench of death
No life left

Broken bones, shattered teeth
Kill to be, savagery
Animal, wild beast
We descend into savagery

Seas spread like locust
Consuming all in their path
The skies are getting darker
The seas are turning black

The lands are ravaged
In mindless persistence
The species must evolve
To preserve its own existence

Cut by stone
Tearing at the carcass
Stench of death
No life left

Broken bones, shattered teeth
Kill to be, savagery!
Animal, wild beast
We descend into savagery!

We descend eternally!


06. Treacherous Tongue

Music by John Laux
Lyrics by John Kevill
Spitting bile
Spreading lies
A warped perverted mind

Words that bite
Words that bind
Words that cannot ever be undone

The virus spreads and infects again
Treacherous! Treacherous!
The infection spreads like venom
Treacherous! Treacherous tongue

That ties
Tongue that lies
Only spreads deceit

Open mouth
Closed fist
The hammer of justice will strike you down!

The virus spreads and infects again
Treacherous! Treacherous!
The infection spreads like venom
Treacherous!
Treacherous tongue!

Crawling in the dirt like a snake
How much more can you take?
Cannot rest until I see you chained
Retribution strikes, and you endure the pain
Nothing gained!


07. Echoes From The Void

Music by Carlos Cruz
Lyrics by John Kevill
Lurk beneath the surface, yet hidden in plain sight
Forbidden thoughts shall be revealed, initiation rite

From out of the darkness, step into the light
Rid yourself of the lie...
The lie!

Behold!
That which has been denied
Through time and space
That which has been...

Lost and damned forgotten, for a thousand years
The plan is set in motion, all will be made clear

Come out of the darkness, bringing forth the light
Break the chains of the lie...
The lie!

Behold!

Cold are the stars as they lay beyond the night sky...
Looking down on us, waiting, as we fade...

As we fade away!

An echo
Echoes..
Echoes from the void!

Cold are the stars as they lay beyond the night sky...
Looking down on us, waiting, as we fade...

Fade away!
Away!

Have we been betrayed?

The secrets
That they have lost
We have kept...
At what cost?
Knowledge will remain
Another day
Even as our souls pass away!

Far beyond
All the keepers
Are all gone
Nothing will remain
All destroyed
Just an echo...
An echo from the void!

Still it presses on... an echo
Echoes..
Echoes from the void!


08. Enemies Of The State

Music by John Laux
Lyrics by John Kevill
They have eyes everywhere, watch what you say
A knock on your door at night, taking you away

Forced deportation through storms of freezing snow
Where are they taking you, you will never know

Gone without a trace
The enemies
You have been erased
You are the enemies of the state!

The iron curtain closes
There is no hope of escape

Live fenced inside barbed wire
Working years away like a slave

Just when you thought, your sentence would end
Stalin's hammer crushes you, time has been extended

Here in the Gulag, no one gets out!

No one... ever... comes out!

Those who disagree
Are enemies
Treason is erased
Stamp out the enemies of the.. state!


09. Behind The Veils Of Night

[Instrumental]


10. Demonic Ecstasy

Music by John Laux
Lyrics by John Kevill
Through the years
I have watched your lives unfold
Behind the veils of night
The ending is foretold

There will be no warning
When the blackness comes to take you
The eye of terror opens
And draws you... Within!

Ages pass
Change in ways we do not see
Forever we are lost
In demonic ecstasy

Before me the portal opens
Calling my name
One step beyond the threshold
In horror, cry out...
My soul is not my own!

Swallowed by the abyss
Eternal blackness
Open wide the gates
Seal... your fate

The soul tries to escape
But it is caught in a black embrace
You are then one who bears the mark
Face to face with the gathering dark

The dark!

Soon time will come for all to be undone

Undone!

The soul tries to escape
But it is caught in a black embrace
You are then one who bears the mark
Face to face with the gathering dark

Swallowed by the abyss!
Eternal blackness!

Open wide the gates
Seal... Your fate!

Take one last look at the light
Tomorrow there will be no dawn... No dawn!


11. Sacrifice

Music & lyrics by Tomas "Ace" "Quorthon" Forsberg
I summoned up the living dead
And demons in the sky
I drank from chalice warm and red
And watched the virgin die

Present at ungodly births in holy paradise
I spread eternal dark on earth
And raped mother of Christ
Oh, the mother of Christ

C'mon baby
Raise your knife
Welcome darling
To my sacrifice
Oh, sacrifice
Oh, sacrifice
Oh, sacrifice

Tie the angel to the altar
Sacrifice to lord in Hell
Let the warm blood torrent baby
Moonlight set the night on spell

I saw the lightning strike in the skies
And heard you roar in pain
I lifted the knife and stroke once more
Your blood was mixed with rain

C'mon baby
Raise your knife
Welcome darling
To my sacrifice
Oh, sacrifice
Sacrifice

I summoned up the living dead
And demons in the sky
I drank from chalice warm and red
And watched the virgin die
Oh, die

Present at ungodly births in holy paradise
I spread eternal dark on earth
And raped mother of Christ
Oh, the mother of Christ

C'mon baby
Raise your knife
Welcome darling
To my sacrifice
Oh, sacrifice
Oh, sacrifice
Oh, sacrifice


12. Execute Them All

Music & lyrics by Johnny Hedlund, Fredrik Lindgren, Tomas Olsson, Anders Schultz
As my final call
Sounds the charge
...to war

I hate the universe and everything inside
I detest all I see, nothing pleases my mind

Execute them all
It's my final war

I hate the sight of you, fashion fake
Joke
I detest every man who cannot stand
Alone

Execute them all
It's my final war

As my final call
Sounds the charge

...to war

I hate the tales you tell, I don't
Believe a word
I detest the stuff you sell, I'll hunt
You around the world

Execute them all
It's my final war

When my days are numbered you'll hear
My final call
I'll take their lives away, I'll execute
Them all

Execute them all
It's my final war

Execute them all
It's my final war
