02. Noose

Music by Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
No way out of your misery
Alone in pain and agony
Lay depressed and hollow
One thought in your mind
No tomorrow

And then you had made up your mind
and thought it was your time
You left this world without shedding a tear
without hope, without fear

So you thought you'd just put your head
into the noose and let it all go...and so you did
Oh yeah, you did

Now you come haunting every night
Calling my name until I...
wake up feeling this sorrow
One thought in my mind
I will follow

I'll drink the booze to depress myself
then I take the rope and express myself
I'll leave this world without shedding a tear
without hope, without fear

Yeah, I think I'll put my head
into the noose and let it all go...and so I will
Oh yeah, I will

I'll take the rope, just like you
and wherever you are, I'll be too

I think I'll just put my head
into the noose and let it all go...and so I will
Oh yeah, I will


03. Shadegrown

Music by Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
I have dwelled in the dark
so long that I have become the night
Here only the chilling northwind
can give warmth to my life

There comes the morning light and brings the pain
...slashing my heart
It goes by slowly and makes the pain last forever
...it tears me apart

I'm drowning in this light
I'm dying, it's so bright
I have lived in the shades
Make the glow go away

Come cast your shadow over me
and I'll cast mine all over thee
Take me away, into the shades
where there is no light of day
(to harm my way)

Come with me and we'll flee from this world
across the nightly sky
Believe me, you'll be free
as we take our ride on the darkside

I'm drowning in this light
I'm dying, it's so bright
I have lived in the shades
Make the glow go away

Come cast your shadow over me
and I'll cast mine all over thee
Take me away, into the shades
where there is no light of day

Come cast your shadow over me
I'll give you immortality
Let's walk away, into the shades
where there is no light of day

To harm our way


04. Bleed

Music by Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
Burnt all the bridges I have passed
No looking back to the life I once had
The hate for myself is all that's left now

"As blood runs down my arms
I feel peace in my heart…"

On my skin the razor blade is shining bright
The veins show clearly through, my blood is running wild

This wrath that runs inside my veins
This hate that burns inside the ruins of my heart
I´ve got to let it out
I can´t control it anymore

"As blood runs down my heart
I feel peace in my heart…"

On my skin the razor blade is shining bright
The veins show clearly through, my blood is running wild
The deep red flowing within, longing to be free
A little pressure's all it takes to make me bleed...to death


05. Keep My Grave Open

Music by Lopakka & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
(Hunt or be hunted)

The days are hot
and the dead lie unburied on the field
So the wind brings the smell of blood;
so heavy and sweet

They're back again
we came so near and yet so far
They're all around
and if they come any closer...
We're done

Keep my grave open, open wide
Keep my grave open, I'm longing to die
Cool and peaceful, and far from the battlefields
...and opened just for me

The moon shuts her eyes
and great black clouds cover the sky
Rain bathes the ground
while we live in darkness like the blind...

Keep my grave open, open wide
Keep my grave open, I'm longing to die
Cool and peaceful, and far from the battlefields
...and opened just for me


06. Crumbling Down (Give Up Hope)

Music by Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
Like roses wither so does hope
as we approach our final fate
A new dawn of man?
Oh no, can't you feel, the end is on its way...

It's all over, said and done, haven't you heard?
We are living our last days in this world
Oh, give up hope, do it now
the world is coming crumbling down

We have passed
the point of no return by far
and swept away the last sheds of hope
A new dawn of man?
Oh no, can't you feel, the end is on its way...

It's all over, said and done, haven't you heard?
We are living our last days on this earth
Oh, your days are over!
Your world is finished!

Down down down down
Thy kingdom gone
Down down down down
My kingdom come

This is it
This is the end

Free at last


07. Sun Won't Shine

Music by Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
The candles have been blown out by the wind
don't be scared, my love, I'm right by your side
I still remember the times I walked alone...dead
until you woke me up and made me come alive

With her love she feeds the fire in my heart
And in her eyes, oh the birth of stars

The sun won't shine on me without your love
...don't you know
The cold wind kills the flame in my heart
...by its blow

She gave me everything I had craved
through the years of pain
the years of pain

With her love she feeds the fire in my heart
Oh she's my only light
In the dark

The sun won't shine on me without your love
...don't you know
The cold wind kills the flame in my heart
...by its blow

Dead calm all around


08. Ode to the End

Music by Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Laihiala & Lopakka
Looking down through clouds of iron
at the shattered remains of the world
New bays on coasts, new land in the sea
Deserts of ash... on death row earth

Open your eyes to realize...
Your source of life exists no more
Pale obsolete is the whole of me
but yet I feel more than ever before

So came our time, the time that lasts forever
and through the death we frolic endlessly
Too many years of pain and sorrow
I hope my life leaves me be... dead

Emotions which I kept are no longer in my head
'cause all the words I said, they showed...
I was dying to be dead

Close your eyes to see why the dark desire
tempts my soul, oh my friend
Come, listen to my mind and feel the fire
This is the ode to the end

Don't hold your sight, I know there's no heaven
...I believe we all have our personal Hell
and don't be scared, take death with open arms
and you'll feel so warm and peacefull...

Emotions which I kept are no longer in my head
'cause all the words I said, they showed...
I was dying to be dead

Close your eyes to see why the dark desire
tempts my soul, oh my friend
Come, listen to my mind and feel the fire
This is the ode to the end

10. Warriror of Life (Reeper Redeemer)

Music by Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka
All these years I've spent fighting the fight
winning my war, showing my might
It was clear to me all the time...
There's no battle like that of life

Give me war!
I will give you hell!

I'm the warrior of life, I know the reaper by name
I was born one foot in grave
I'm the warrior of life and my blood's running cold
I see pain wherever I go

I've stood up everyone and everything
and walked against the wind
So it is and so it will be
It is the only way... for me

Give me war!
I will give you hell!

I'm the warrior of life, I know the reaper by name
I was born one foot in grave
I'm the warrior of life and my blood's running cold
I see pain wherever I go


11. I'll Throw the First Rock

Music by Tenkula & SENTENCED
Lyrics by Lopakka & Laihiala
I could hear them speaking of those
"Good old days" that never were
Those hollow containers for souls
who no longer live there...

It dwells in my heart, the eternal hate
To get your share just wait (and see)

There are no strangers in this world
only bastards I haven't met
...and my skeptic way of thinking
turns away the joys they shed

It dwells in my heart, the eternal rage
And now I'll blast it on your face!

I'll throw the first rock
Blacken your world and your sun

It dwells in my heart, the eternal rage
And now I'll blast it on your face!

I'll throw the first rock
I'll throw the first one
You'll crumble to the ground
As I throw the rock that brings you down


12. No Tomorrow

Eyes without light can see so clear
what those with sight are blind to...
The final fight is getting near
And they were right, we will lose...

Come this far no turning back
A kiss before it all turns black

My stars have fallen from the sky
My dreams have faded into the night
No tomorrow
Not for me
Pain and sorrow
All I see

The final night is getting near...
The fading light, we'll be through
For the first time I'm feeling fear
And oh, damn right, we will lose

The shadows growing deep
We'll be gone eternally

Our stars have fallen from the sky
Our dreams have faded into the night
No tomorrow
Not for us
Death and sorrow
Dust to dust

No tomorrow
Not for us
Death and sorrow
Dust to dust
