Smelling at the distance The sweating fear of the oppressed Feeding you day by day To build an eternal empire All of this belongs to you A so-called gift from heaven Helped you shape reality as it is To stomp upon the weak Feel the earth trembling Soldiers coming out of the dust Beings that were born With a clear objective set To end up this cowardice That removes the right to question A self-imposed authority Which holds the precious knowledge This reign of oppression This reign of absorption Horrid sight, beings swarming The troops from the underground The troops are coming after you Armed with nothing but revenge You cant' push so hard on life Without being beaten Gathered enough energy To crush the barrier of realities, To invade your land of madness And bring death and slavery How predictable Yet the story repeats Over and over again In an endless war This reign of oppression This reign of absorption Horrid sight, beings swarming The troops from the underground The troops are coming after you Armed with nothing but revenge You cant' push on the Troops from the Underground Sabotage their plans United with all of your kind Support from the rebellious Gives you the power to impose While it is tainting you inside Begin losing perception And sanity

Lost in the middle of a dark, moist city Hundreds of crestfallen beings are walking steadily Prisoners of the greed, ambition was their wish Mischievous was the offer, or was it a trap instead? Tempting offerings shook them to the guts Naive, though, they were - Trust in this realm is rare Looking up to the skies, only pale rocks are seen Gigantic skeletons supporting the weight of the solid clouds Night Storm Cold Grim Suddenly started to float Liquid flooding all around Hopeless beginning to drown No life will be left down here Night Storm Cold Grim

Going against nature of things Defying logic that defines this realm Crawling between the cracks Trying to avoid what's inevitable Think about how many fell Believing in something too good to be real Blinded by a shield of greed A natural impulse to take advantage What are you willing to do just to survive? What are you willing to deny, just stretch your lifespan? To whom are you supposed to sell your soul? What are you afraid of? You know it's your time! Survival - At what cost? Survival - Time's all lost Survival - Not a trace of human form No matter how much you desire, the damage cannot be undone Moving during cold nights Looking for any chance to steal It's just a soulless greedy body Lost in another dimension Calling Waiting Devising Killing Survival - At what cost? Survival - Time's all lost Survival - Not a trace of human form No matter how much you desire, the damage cannot be undone Survive – Go and run Survive – Hunt and kill Survive – Fear to die Survive – Can’t escape What are you willing to do just to survive? What are you willing to deny, just to stretch your lifespan? To whom are you supposed to sell your soul? What are you afraid of? You know it's your time! At what cost? Time's all lost Not a trace of human form No matter how much you desire At what cost? Time's not lost Unrecognizable The damage cannot be undone

Rising menace, cold blooded You feel it close to you but you can’t tell where it is Heart beating, accelerating You have your objective set, your shelter’s on the other end Warm blooded, easy prey Tired breath of agitation, ruthless eyes watching every move Slithering with only one thing in mind Moving skin, so confusing Something’s going on, you feel the danger close to you You know the path; others have gone Though you haven’t heard of any of them coming back False certainty of secure pass Deceits and makes you fall into a trap Slithering, reptile after mammal Watching, waiting Hungry for your human flesh Ruthless constriction Terrified human mice Can’t distinguish it from the dark Strange sense of allurement To two beautiful diamonds Offered in the midst of the night Excited by those eyes That can make you tremble Thinking of the power they hold Your head says “stay away” But your body just keeps moving to them What a powerful expectation A deadly one Eager for supreme power Can’t realize how easy it is to manipulate that hunger A matter of time, it’s all you need To shift from your fur and become something else To betray your own breed While being crushed thinking that you will be Slithering, and no one will escape Watching, waiting Hungry for their human flesh Ruthless constriction They will be terrified

Walking down a strange city of fire No heat is felt A guided tour through the unknown Can’t measure the latent danger Persons walking steadily They don’t get burned, mysteriously When a change is perceived around You’ll notice that they are aware Strange companions Strange is the scenario Eyeless people With a horrid, cold grin Thinking this is another nightmare Yielded from the subconscious mind Erroneously assuming a safe environment When reality is getting averse Strange companions Strange is the scenario Eyeless people With a horrid, cold grin Just like Life sucking machines Misleading to the infinity Energy absorbing deceit from From inorganic entities Life as you know it, can be taken away By those who hunger for your energy They have been present during your dreams In the form of many things Inorganic intelligence is stalking you Just like Life sucking machines Misleading to the infinity Energy absorbing deceit from Inorganic entities Life sucking machines Misleading to the infinity Energy absorbing deceit Inorganic Supra-human And alluring entities

Tired and breathless Look what is behind you Desire is all it takes To take what is not yours Hands are stained with blood Not sure if this is real Doesn't feel like it is Doesn't matter that much now Your own lands Your own kingdom You're lying to yourself 'Cause your reflection seems to be more than what it really is Digging deeper and deeper Into this loss of reason Exploring unknown madness Caused by this grandeur delirium Thinking that you could dominate Such tremendous power Out of your imagination Totally Blinded Little by little It is consuming you Turning you into something That is not human (no way back) Your own lands Your own kingdom You're lying to yourself 'Cause your reflection seems to be more than what it really is Digging deeper and deeper Into this loss of reason Exploring unknown madness Caused by this grandeur delirium
7.
Waking up by the smell of boiling wax Recovering consciousness, feeling slumber Twisting your wrists, your arms can’t move though No matter how much you struggle, a feeling of impotence arises A masked man enjoys the show He is waiting for you to wake up again The old man takes off his mask With an evil sight and laughter he ignites the fire Torture continues Breathless - Limbs on fire - Wondering why you’re lying there Staring at you with a ruthless gaze No way out Waking up forced by the stench Of the rotting corpse lying just under your bed A wooden bed - Torture room Scarred body laying, hands and feet retained It seems you’re not the first to suffer the same Breathless - Limbs on fire - Wondering why you’re lying there Staring at you with a ruthless gaze No way out of this nightmare Crowd smashing the door That’s the sound of rebellion It opens, now enters the light of deliverance Free from a terrible torture You don’t remember how you got there No time to think This is your chance to run Running does not help Every time you look back they're behind... Getting closer…
