Track Name: Mass Hypnosis
Like a ray of light
Like a shooting star
They can see you come
To set free The Swarm

From a different world
From an ancient land
Will you say the words?
Let them breathe your air?

Death at your fingertips
With your venomous tongue you lick them clean

This is not what it said in the prophecy
Your are not what they thought you were meant to be
Salvation at your fingertips, precision is a must.
You are The One.
Track Name: A Welcome Breeze Of Stinking Air
Now the balance is set
We're changing foot from left to right
Eager and with false hope
We gave them our trust

Speech on speech
Lies on top of lies
Empty Promises
The guys are having such a blast....

But nothing's changed
It is just a different set of lies
Nothing's changed
It is just a different set of lies...

Attempting to win
It's a race without a finish line
They're all relay-runners
And you're left behind

Thank you, come again
It has been nice shitting you
Improvement's around the corner
Your vote made a difference...

But nothing will change
It is just a different set of lies
Nothing will change
It is just a different set of lies...
Track Name: Fatal Search
Millions of human lives to sacrifice
They were born to die now they're dead at last
Millions of human lives to sacrifice
Born to die...

Wished for death all their lives
Searching for truth on the other side
Darkened souls to purify
Dead and buried...

Millions of human lives to sacrifice
They were born to die now they're dead at last
Millions of human lives to sacrifice
Born to die...
Track Name: Shadows
Tell me where these shadows came from
What clouded our reality?
Was is it just too easy, or was it just the pain?
Was it all enough for you to bring us to the end?

Covered up by motion blur
There were no mistakes - yet I feel it burn.

Qualified to measure my own misery
I cannot believe there is nothing left for me
Tell me why I even bother, tell me why I sit and cry
You said every word so clear yet I sit here wonder why

Darkness struck by lightning
Divided into half's
No reason nor a purpose
The end just came so fast

All that's left is shadows
Cast by our shallow dreams
But the fire is still burning
So deep inside, inside of me...

I will not give up until
The truth's nailed to the wall
The lies won't serve our purpose
In corruption lies our fall

The over mind is dying
Its eyes can't see us all
But I'll be here when you are gone
I'll make it through the storm...
Track Name: Corrosion
Corrosion
Corrosion
Corrosion

Like water corroding metal
Your world is withering
All you had you have lost
Never to return again

Your life, will rust

Particles that used to be you
Falling down like dead skin
What once shone is now matt
It can never be saved

Rusting from the inside out
Dead and dry you fall apart
You're nothing but corrosive waste
So what's the point of trying?

Corrosion... no devotion

So tied up with no devotion
Your life is falling apart
You've lost your sense of color
Everything is in shades of red and brown
Track Name: Multinational Murderers Network
A broken promise
Unmeasurable strength
Those feeble lies
Spread an awful fucking stench

A juicy profit and millions lying dead
An attempt to conceal the stench of putrid decay

A profit made from death
These huge organizations harvest lives
The Multinational
The Unstoppable
Unscrupulous
Dead

They paint a picture
And retouch away the pain
No grief, no sorrow
There was just too much to gain
Squeeze it out now
Squeeze out the last drop of fucking cash
Bury it beneath
Our very private stash...

A profit made from death
These huge organizations built on lies
The Multinational
The Unstoppable
Unscrupulous
Dead

A broken promise
Unmeasurable strength
Those feeble lies
Spread an awful stench
A juicy profit
And millions are lying dead
An attempt to conceal
The stench of this putrid decay...
Track Name: Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow
Born and raised by your rules,
still I disappointed you
But I've always done my best
and it's never good for you

You never gave me air to breath,
you never clipped my wings
And now I've failed again
as a thousand times before

So now you see...

Now you see what became of me
The extremely black sheep of the family
So let me hear your "we told you so"
And get out of my life - fuck you!
Track Name: The Black Swarm
Excessive cleansing
Washing away the blood
from your shaking hands

Coughing up filth
It's like nothing is clean when
your mind still is dirty

The swarm is near...

Panic's rising by a buzzing sound
Pushes you into states of regression
A black swarm piercing through your skin
Flying high with flies

Sick, turning sicker
It creeps on you,
but that's nothing new

Finally realizing
What we've always known,
that you're the bug

The swarm is here...

Panic's rising by a buzzing sound
Pushes you into states of regression
A black swarm piercing through your skin
Flying high with flies

Flying high with flies

Sick, turning sicker, turning sick, fucking sick
Track Name: Sixteen
Try to purify
The well of dirty lies
Overflown with deadly sins

An attempt to pacify
With orders to comply
A calm breeze before it all begins

Often wonder why
The don't realize
Why they think I'm in their way

Leave my throne behind
Take on my empty shadows
As I finally - finally - fall from grace

A society without grief
An order with no time for mourning
Track Name: Alarm
A distant alarm, a sound from far away
We raised our heads towards the sky but there was nothing there to see
The restless crowd is now breaking the silence
Anxiety is rising, the sky is turning dark
A riot is emerging, men beat men to death
This is unexplainable, a fight without a battle
The alarm resounds and someone called in a speaker:
"This is not a drill, I repeat: this is not a drill..."

Today we die, today we testify
All we do must come to an end - this is the end

Reversed evolving, turning people into beasts
They're feasting on each other, strong consume the weak
Flaming ruins, society is lost
Shattered city streets filled with blind, nameless creatures
The sky cracks open, dust is descending
Breath the black air, feel darkness in your lungs
Silence - nothing makes a sound
But we can still hear, the sound of the alarm

Today we die, today we testify
All we do must come to an end - this is the end

A distant early warning
A sound from far away
We raised our heads
Towards the sky
Towards the alarm...
Track Name: Detonator
Minesweep my soul
Ready to blow
Looks like it?s time to give in

My fuses blown
Beaten and torn
Over the edge, now it begins

You were my detonator
Two as one
Falling down
Descending into the unknown

Shut your eyes
Look inside
Shocked - but it?s too late to leave

Scream for revenge
Foaming with rage
Too late for all apologies

You were my detonator
Two as one
Falling down
Descending into the unknown

Broken hope in succession of
Broken words I had put my faith in you
Stolen truth, so shocked by you
Stolen truth, deception in the extreme

You were my detonator
Two as one
Falling down
Descending into the unknown
Track Name: Gargoyles and Grotesques
We don't see them, but they see us...

We're always being watched
by dark figures of stones
We cannot move, we cannot hide,
we're eaten through our eyes

Gaze into the face of the monster
Do you cringe or do you stand strong?
Step away - you might be to close
If your in their reach, all will be lost

They are nightmares in the sky
Who will take away our sleep
We're sharing the dreams
of our dead forefathers

We don't see them, but they see us
Grotesque gargoyles, they smile and laugh

Society is a place filled with statues
Always watching our moves
Motionless, but still in motion
They'll haunt us both day and night

We don't see them, but they see us
Grotesque gargoyles, they smile and laugh
Track Name: Nar Dagarna...
Inget att fârlora
Det är dags att ge igen
Ombytta roller nu
Vi skiter i fârskiktighet

Vi har allt att vinna
Det finns ingen risk som är fâr stor
Flera tusen offer
Ąr inte můnga nog

När dagarna är räknade
Och efterskalven har ebbat ut...

Sitter där sů jävla hâga pů er egen girighet
Ni kommer att sätta den i halsen till slut
Och dů stůr vi beredda
Och hämnden kommer bli sů ljuv
Ge oss slutet
Ge det till oss nu

När dagarna är räknade
Och efterskalven har ebbat ut
Dů är era dagar räknade
Och rättvisan har segrat...
...har segrat till slut!
Track Name: Resistance
Tell me what you believe in,
wage your values against mine
and tell me I am just some piece of shit
with a fucked up mind
why can't I just shut the fuck up?

Dead - but you're still breathing
A consumer of the highest rank
I wonder when you're gonna realize
that you are just a product
and you shouldn't shit where you eat!

Never free, never been
Always chained to misery
Always blind to what's beyond
the horizon, you're just a drone.
It is all so sickening
Your wife & kids & family
You don't care 'cause they're all dead
Just like yourself, they keep them fed

FEED YOU WITH LIES - DESTROY YOUR MINDS

Wake-up call, now you stall
So it's THEIR world, not free for all?
Finally you hear the news
A tainted picture, an awful bruise
Confusion - now the bubble bursts
It's time to hit them where it hurts
Destroy the core, melt the machine
Resistance - where it all begins!

OPEN YOUR EYES - LOOK INTO MINE

Fed you with lies
Destroyed your minds
Open your eyes
Look into mine and realize

...RESIST!!!!!
Track Name: The Idiot Parade
Thought you were deaf
Yeah, I thought you were blind
When you just stood there
While the idiots walked in line

In the Idiot Parade

You are taking their side
You are holding their hands
You stupid motherfucker
This must come to an end

...come to an end!

Your senseless thoughts of racial pride
Have infested your weak mind
Will you ever realize?
It's not you or them - it's us!

Protected by laws
Made by your own kind
It's the system in progress
It's the death of the free mind...

It's the Idiot Parade!

Deaf, dumb and blind
May be your only excuse
Not how much you have suffered
Not the years of abuse

...the truth is foolproof!

Your senseless thoughts of racial pride
Have infested your weak mind
Will you ever realize?
It's not you or them - it's us!

Face me
Convince me
And show me
How I am wrong, what I have started

Blame me
Seduce me
Convict me
Decide my fate and end my struggle.

Nothing went wrong
There is no one to blame
Yet no one is safe
When the idiots are on parade!
Track Name: Den Svarta Fanan
Här fârgůs ett liv pů en sekund
Det finns inget mer att hämta här
Som fůgelskrämmor pů utbrända fält
Noggrant sanerade med napalm

Glimtar av vad som komma skall
Ett fârtvivlat skri i raseri
Med rädslan satt pů plats
Och vreden fast i hand
Můste vi agera medan hela världen stůr i brand...

Med tvů fria händer och kämparglâd
Kan vi sů ny säd och bryta ny jord
Med livet som insats och vreden fast i hand
Lůt den svarta fanan vaja hâgt....
Track Name: We're Nothing But Pawns
In the world where we live,
we're nothing but pawns
A tool of their trade
A brick in the wall
- nothing but pawns

We are nothing - only tools,
disposable and easy to get
We got fucked, we are such fools,
we saw the hook and swallowed the bait

They fool us, seduce us, buy us, use us,
defuse us, smash us, kill us, trash us

In the world where we live,
we're nothing but pawns
A tool of their trade
A brick in the wall
- nothing but pawns
Track Name: Defragmentation
Defrag the information
Sort out the damaged
A process to gain more power
To speed it all up

Too much shit
Clogging up the system
Heading for a meltdown

Scan and find
Unnecessary blockings
Slowing down the process

Just like a damaged file
We must heal and reboot
And start it up again
To get somewhere

Corrupt transmission
Damaged information
Slaves under the error

End of file
End of life
Redirect or die

Just like a damaged file
We must heal and reboot
And start it up again
To get somewhere

Defrag the information
Sort out the damaged
A process to gain more power
To speed it all up

Too much shit
Way too much fucking shit
In the system!
Track Name: Sick System
Sick - system built on suffering
Sick - system built on pain.

It's a bullet in the head of every happy boy and girl
Track Name: The Professional League
Violence - is it your answer, is it your plan?
Your heritage
A crossover between life and death
It's a must-be fan
Raging in its' cage
And I can see it coming
Now can you?

No - I play it safe
One step ahead, two steps aside
Yeah, and I forget
It was reality that made you blind

Struggling - one breath of air that is all I ask
You're choking me
And I am stripped down to the core

I am a must-be fan
Raging in my cage
And I can feel it moving
Now can you?

No - I play it safe
One step ahead, two steps aside
Yeah, and I forget
It was reality that made you blind
No - I play it safe
One step ahead, two steps aside
Yeah, it made you bleed
It made you come to sense and realize...

Start by being honest
And realize your potential
Make a bed out of colorful flowers
Plant a seed, paint a picture - it's all you!

Bury your regrets and
Cast your anchor where you like
And while you're at it you can
Bury all your sorrows
Feel you heart growing inside

No - I play it safe
One step ahead, two steps aside
Yeah, and I forget
It was reality that made you blind
No - I play it safe
One step ahead, two steps aside
Yeah, it made you bleed
It made you come to sense and realize...
Track Name: Old And Tired?
Giving up, eating shit, dropping out
Your whole life, your old ideals, caving in

But you don't know that you still serve a purpose
As an ugly example to all mankind
But you don't know that you still serve a purpose
Although you are too weak to fight

Old and tired?
That's pure shit
Your mind is too weak
Giving in
For temptations of society

But you don't know that you still serve a purpose
As an ugly example to all mankind
But you don't know that you still serve a purpose
Although you are too weak to fight - fight!
Track Name: Words To Die For
Dear not to defy your priorities
The overall effect is devastating

Dive into the burning flames

One choice, few words from the souls of the damned
So impressive and so forfeit

Dive into the burning flames

So what were you hoping for?
Did you expect the violence to end, did the blood seem too red?
So what are you fighting for?
All you see is the cause - the noble end
"When freedom exists there will be no state"

Lives to sacrifice, no attempts to deny
The lies served upon silver plates, now consumed

Dead - dehumanized - the lives to sacrifice
You're dead anyway, anyhow

Will you dive into the burning flames?
And sacrifice yourself to fill the void

So were these words worth dying for?
Do you even care or is it the end that you adore?
Track Name: Riot
Look at the angry masses
Like burning flames that lick the air

Onward, forward!
Our hate is lit
We will not submit to the ultra-violence

We are on are march to reconstruct society
We are here to show you our side of reality
RIOT - burn the streets!
Feel our purifying napalm!
Track Name: The Meaningless Trial
I try to realize
Dis-romanticize
I try to take it all in

I try to clear my mind
Read between the lines
Just before it all begins

The true pacifist
I know he does exist
But will he dare to take the stand?

Will he bare the pressure?
Survive this ugly session?
Will he make it 'til the end?

There's no justice
Not even a scrap
A meaningless trial
Has finally come to an end

There's no justice
So why bother being fair?
The time has come
And the pacifist's dead.
Track Name: Sometimes Dead Is Better
Your heartless compassion just tears through my flesh
Like burning red flaming blades of steel
You got it all but there's always one more pound
Cutting with precision you know what you want
Don't divide me from myself what you say fucks my mind
Got me in a tight grip but still you clutch harder
Sucking me dry by just looking at me with your eyes
Disengage me from this constant pain

Our worlds keep on colliding,
we're heading for the total collapse
So why do we bother trying?
We are just destroying ourselves
All this makes us fucking blind,
or are we just to scared to see?
What's dead can't be kept alive,
so let us just leave this be

My stubborn struggle to hold on only pushed you further away
I didn't know it killed you though you bled before my eyes
There are still things about you that I will never learn
I could never understand when something was wrong
I sense a cold shiver as everything falls into place
Nothing good will come out of this
Let's reach for the door before we cave-in
But everything will explode

Our worlds keep on colliding,
we're heading for the total collapse
So why do we bother trying?
We are just destroying ourselves
All this makes us fucking blind,
or are we just to scared to see?
What's dead can't be kept alive,
so let us just leave this be
