There’s no such thing as hope A star drowning in nothingness A world thrown into the abyss Forever floating An Eternity spent in vain Perception of futility kills all reasons What is left to believe in? Let ashes rain from the heavens like death reigns all being There’s no such thing as hope…. Cease all striving Even the new gods are dead The nihilistic chants sang them to their grave A dirge to shake the pillars of the universe When all worlds crumble And the fog clears Life shows its hidden grimace And the mind can vegetate in true freedom Perception of futility kills all reasons What is left to believe in? Let ashes rain from the heavens like death reigns all being There’s no such thing as hope

Uprise Part II millennia in oppression taught mankind how to bow not to question, not to speak its mind just accept world's eternal order and although we finally awoke tried to grasp power for the masses still the few reign in the shadows with their preaching of the darkness Raise your fists up high yell a martial cry Uprise above the skies Strike off your puppet strings with a rebellious song to sing Uprise above all kings Destroy this book so flawed unmask this religious fraud Uprise above all gods When injustice surpasses Fuel the conflict of classes Uprise all you masses the fear of change is infinite and so the shadows reign with fear fuel the primitive, small minds to distract from their power call them priests, call them nazis call them 1%, call them greedy fucking bastards call them cowards, conservative power-lusting snakes they're all afraid of you, the critical masses For when we demask their agenda when we rise up to change the world to take back ours and nature's dignity It is them who will be torn to pieces

Lesson in basic human empathy Judgment based on action not on colour, race or sex no harming of sentient beings but respecting life help where help is needed No condemnation of the innocent take responsibility for your wealth that is built on the backs of others Act only according to that maxim whereby you can, at the same time, will that it should become a universal law. If you can’t understand this lesson in basic human empathy – you can fuck off you cunt Stand up against injustice indifference is unacceptable Defend those who cannot Only the weak do not protect Walk a mile in the other one’s shoes Prejudice is for the numb Don’t let angst reign your mind Fear was never a good judge For too long the hateful and the small minds have dominated the public discussion It is time to let reason and empathy dictate our social conscience again And we have built enough bridges and tried to show understanding It is time to fight back with all we have For too long greed for money and power reigned humanity It is time to show some decency again For too long the populist have distracted us with their fear of the alien It is time to fuck off, you cunts

Monuments 07:19
With the void grasping our hearts and nothingness clouding our skies we seek to build monuments for ourselves monuments our departure won’t destroy With swords in hands and warcries filling our chests we stand proud in the face of this last quest to vanish into nothingness with hearts ablaze the only hope that our cries still echo in distant days Monuments of flesh, Monuments of the mind still all bound to fall by the empire of infinity and though our hearts burn with the creator’s fire nothing can shroud the fear of death To accept the void to embrace death to fear the emptiness but to leave some trace Raise monuments to endure the void that will echo your warcry in coming decades raise them from flesh and mind not from stone or cross When the blackness engulfs and takes away all illusions of fear or peace a whispered warcry on our lips roar so future decades can pridefully sing With the void grasping our hearts and nothingness clouding our skies we seek to build monuments for ourselves monuments our departure won’t destroy With swords in hands and warcries filling our chests we stand proud in the face of this last quest to vanish into nothingness with hearts ablaze the only hope that our cries still echo in distant days

The Iron Eagles still fly There are rules to protect to save and to prevent If you’d sticked to them I wouldn’t blame this on you Out of a twisted sense of almightiness you found a way to pass these rules and now look what you have done accepted the risk and now they’re dead – this is plain and simple murder You set the world afire for 346 innocent all for money and power thought this would be your end But the Iron Eagles still fly You knew, you knew, you knew Fuck you, Fuck you, Fuck In what sick world do you still exist in what sick world are murderers not locked away money and power keeps you in place I still think you should rot in your guts But still after millennia to learn gold still rules the world and if you have enough you can murder and still sip Champaign You set the world afire for 346 innocent all for money and power thought this would be your end But the Iron Eagles still fly

Poor and rich divided by chance eternal war between the classes crowns became stock prices gold still rules the masses not wisdom, not compassion fear of change is immanent don’t even dare to dream where is it written that few can live in abundance but the creating backs are broken by the weight where is it written that wealth must be focused that we rather allow the few to live in exaggeration than everyone in peace Burn down every palace Of wealth and decadence they enrichened themselves time and time and time again Burn down every fortress Of the forever yesterday’s they denied you justice time and time and time again Think the unthinkable nothing is too absurd when it comes to living Challenge the status quo nothing is written in stone Wealth can be distributed without the world to collapse Nothing will change if we suppress ideas for a better world Why is it unthinkable to dream of justice There would be enough But who already has wants more Why do we blindly follow people without compassion money still equals power when power should be in the hands of the people Practice radical decency! Proletarians of all countries, unite! Not saying that it worked in the past But neither does today It's time to reasses our values it's time to practice some radical decency!
