 SONG: JEN

 



Jen you're stuck into my world now

And you're one of god's most precious pearls now

And your blue eyes show a new dimension

That this world has got a new extension



You came to me in days of sadness

There is no young there is no old

You took me into your world of madness

Now twice I don't have to be told



Jen honestly I say I love you

Hair, that has the colour of chestnut, that

presence I admire you

Happy is your world wide religion

You can't hurt nobody, at least with no intention



We are just smiling at each other

Honey you must be from above

And those in sadness we will bother

We sold our souls for love

To everybody



And when you meet her

Then say hello for me

The sweetest child of mine





 SONG: CHILDREN'S HOLOCAUST

 



Let me introduce myself, the avenger from the past

This is not a joke at all, from the other side of the grave I call



You both were my parents

You killed me when I was still small

And you reason like all the others

Just a piece of cell that's all



Made cosmetics of my placenta

Threw away and burned my remains

You use a fine word: abortion

It's children's holocaust to me



No morning for the living either

For most children life is a hell

They are sacrificed on the altar

For a few bastards wealth



In school they get mistreated

At home beaten and raped

Put down and constant defeated

The grown world feeds them with hate



I am the father, I am talking to you

You sodomise my children, stop the things you do



You say tomorrow, leave the past behind

But the sorrow still does remind

And the shadows are closing in

And just because we've learned to live with sin

You can't see me but you feel me

I am coming to set them free

I've done this before

The persian empire

The roman empire

And now you

You don't learn so you must burn

Because you sodomise my children

Sodomise my children





 SONG: IN HONOUR

 



Marie Kelly must die

Her accusations we deny

Free masons are involved

Jack the Ripper's mystery is solved

A young Annie Crook has marriage plans

A certain prince is the man

The Royal House does not approve

A catholic and a local too



Secretly she was put away

A mental hospital and there to stay

There it didn't matter what she'd say

They wouldn't listen anyway



Marie Kelly you were truly one of a kind

Blackmailing the Royal House, you freely spoke your mind

In doing what you did you were an enemy of the State

Five dead prostitutes a waste of time to investigate

Marie Kelly you just wanted your friend to be free

That it meant you'd lose your life, that you could not see



We fear death and darkness my friend

that's why we need a legend

Marie Kelly did die

Honour her and live and stop the lie





 SONG: THE MADMAN FROM WACO

 



A young man starts a revolution

Something must happen today

He thinks he's found a solution

He gets carried away



Darkness coming, best get ready

System closing, remain steady today



Media enters with confusion

Government that makes a state

They have the same solution

Problems are solved with hate



Children dying, burning, screaming

It's not real, I am dreaming



The madman from Waco

Just how mad was he?

It seems that they just wanted to make an alternative society

Can you look the survivors in the eye

and still believe the media lie

The Devil wants no one to be free

In his pretend democracy



Questions soon began to rise

Who's responsible for the fire

The outside says Suicide

The inside says the F.B.I.



Bodies lying all around

Blood is screaming from the ground

Demands revenge from both sides

From those who let them die





 SONG: MASTERS OF ALL EVIL

 



There is only one truth around us today

I tell you what is gonna come, it ain't no fairy tale

There is a group of families that hold our destiny

In pact with the darkest one, they rule the economy

The metropolitan 400 they are called

But in the end the 7 families rule them all

Those families of evil, set all presidents to rule

But they are all just puppets, the masters' favourite tools



The masters of all companies you can call them too

So much money it seems with it they don't know what to do

For instance they financed the entire world war two

Or did you think that Hitler all alone could pull it through

But that occurance it is a story of its own

An attempt to get the darkest one much earlier on his throne

And the war against the jews it's so very clear

Without them on this earth the proof of God wouldn't be here

Would it ??!!



You're truly the masters of evil

Abomination the ultimate sin

Destroyers of earth and the father's foundation

You'll burn in hell 'cause it's your dream



A thousand years of crying

All thos fears and denyings

The 7 families are here

The 7 years are near



Marx called them "das Kapital", we say democracy

God call them the devil, so many names, it's hard to see

Those sick perverted assholes must achieve their goal

To lose this war with Satan, and thrash all human souls

Global destruction: their number one game

Or is the hole in the sky a joke of the insane

So let them have your money, just don't let them have your soul

Live free and easy and remember what I told but you fee





 SONG: ODE TO REBECCA

 



I have found you, the chosen one

I have found you, the infinite one



For you I gladly walk into the valley of life & death

Hand in hand with horror & love & life everlasting

You were born in silence, still I hear your voice

You were born to silence, meaningless words spoken with rottening tongues

Zombie dead creatures walking this earth



Still you won't hear the gathering sounds of the final fight of Armageddon

You refuse to hear the lies spoken since dawn of time

You never look the Evil one in the eye

And you never feel the pain



I have found you, the chosen one

I have found you, the perfect one, the infinite one





 SONG: HIGH ON INFINITY

 

(Love supreme)



Dream child tonight

You are entitled the right

So sick and tired of the constant fight

Tonight the Master is here

And he holds you dear

And now all the reasons are clear

Just fly on, today here tomorrow gone

In the end you sum up what you won



Electric impulses like lightning

Running through my veins

I'm travelling for the future

Through the astral planes



Just take my hand, I'll make you understand

That you are unique, you are grand

Don't hesitate, I'll take you out of hate

Let the earth alone have its fate

You don't have much time, life's short and most are blind

They're stuck in reasons of that life's not kind



Life's been pain, grief and tears

Caused by nightmare dreams

Now it's tears of joy instead

It's a love supreme



So what you see is no longer a choice to be

You simply nmust set yourself free

Come on follow me, and get high on infinity

Join the astral caravan

I say, you can come along too

We're on our way to another land





 SONG: AN ORDINARY LOSER

 



The story I tell you is old, in fact the oldest in the world

I feel that it must be told, 'til now no one's ever heard

Somewere in time there's a school, a boy went there to read and write

You were nobody's fool, you quickly learned the game and how to fight

Then when he was ten years old his parents got divorced

Father was so cold and mother was so forced

It hurts so bad inside, he thought it was all his fault

He discovered it was a lie, all the things he once was taught



Tomorrow's child he cries

But only in his mind

He gets so cold inside

He leaves his ones behind



Today he's a full grown man

Wife & children and a piece of land

He's got a steady job, no trouble in the way

Suddenly there she stands, again in love he takes her by the hand

He tries to tell his wife, he wants this woman to stay in his life



Tomorrow's child he cries

But only in his mind

He gets so cold inside

He leaves his ones behind



This is not the curse of God, nor of the accuser

It's the curse of mankind that makes him an ordinary loser

The older says: you can go to hell

The younger says: she's crazy

He loves them both, they know this well

Pride hold them back, they lose him



Women of this world today

Don't wow this world away

A man is fertile all his life, this need is not right to deny

I know it is not fair, but it's a fact, it's not that we don't care

Only one thing to do

Put in the law a man can marry two





 SONG: TRAITOR

 



The rats start to scream, you are threatening their dream

They want peace and quiet, on their way to eternal night

You can't be your own, it will make the others moan

They plot and they scheme, they must kill every dream



All around looking for another reason

They must destroy someone, commited to a treason

Traitor



Goodnight to you, a bedtime story I tell it's true

Under the sun nothing's new, nothing's won

A philosophy, that holds no solutional key

Go to work and get payed, don't ask for more they say



A wageslave that's all you ever be

They steal your life and leave you in misery

Traitor



The world seems chaos and confusion

Someone gains on this illusion

Just one life, in love's name you had it

Still you dare refusing to live it



Strange reality, you work your life away

Killing yourself, just to pass another day

That's not how the world was meant to be

It's easy to see, still we don't, it's a pity



All around looking for another reason

All around you hear the nonsense reason



No wonder you feel sick inside

It hurts so much you have no place to hide

Come with me I got the key to your heart

Travel through time and space in my time warp



A storm blows up outside, it's coming, it's coming

The rats they hide inside, they're running, they're running

But we are not afraid, we know why, we know why

Our time has finally come, I say yeahhh





 SONG: THE DANCE

 



The road is so long

And I am so alone

The wind blows outside

It feels like suicide, so come on



This is the same old song

I cannot go but wrong

I'm just a simple man

Who tries to understand, come on



The first moth of summer's here

Again you disappear

And later the same noon

I'm howling at the moon, come on



Still I hear you say

That life is quite okay

Still I'm the only one

Still I'm the lonely one, so come on





 SONG: THE COMING

 



Silence in the air, people are nervous, everyone is in fear

This is the day the earth stands still, the sinners they must beware

All through history people have tried to solve its mystery

And today you have, can you still tell me that you don't believe



I don't believe my own eyes

I see a door it's open to paradise

I see a new star coming in the black sky

And I know that I am never gonna die



The earth it starts to tremble as it draws its final breath

A bodily chain reaction just like a man when he's near death

People running scared, something siniter's in the way

It's not science fiction, this is the final day



Cosmic laws they cease today

This is the return to beginning of time

And there is a new world coming out of Orions belt

And the strangest presence I have never felt



The signs been in the fields so long

You wouldn't believe it, you couldn't receive it

Talking of the Kingdom come

You refuse to see it, best is to leave it

It is right in front of your eyes

Hatred increasing, nature is leaving

Our course was locked in suicide since the foundation

No more grief and tears



The shock waves start to ease down as our senses coming to

The preparation has begun for the old world and the new

Imagine people from the past and the future in the same place

The four horsemen, the four dimensions, the same space





 SONG: LOST WORLD

 



Free, you say you're gonna be

Me, I don't at all agree

The facts of life you don't see

Either truth or reality



Don't let my words bring you down

Just keep on trying

I just can't say that you will be free

If I did I'd be lying



Countries, they have all governments

It's not, how the world was meant

Power, in the hands of fools

They are, all the devil's tools



Revolution will set you free

But only temporarily

To fight in stages time & time again

Or we face eternal darkness and pain



We are living at the end of time

It's the worst and best for human kind

Fight to the end that's our destiny

Until all evil hearts are gone or set free



The lion will lie down with the lamb

That we don not understand

Predator: is not a natural state

Creation bound in eternal hate



You know evil won't go away

And that it is here to stay

Until the redeemer comes

The fight goes on and on and on



Don't let my words bring you down

Just keep on trying

I just can't say that you will be free

If I did I'd be lying





 SONG: COSMOS

 



Everywhere you see my trace

Of my creation journey through the space

The secret of the big bang's mine

The science master of all time



If you really want to leave this hell

Then listen to what I tell

Drop out of society

Leave it all and follow me



Don't worry 'bout the clothes to wear

I'll find you food and shelter here

Live your life to the full

Cosmos is beautiful
