Track Name: The perfect path to crime
THE PERFECT PATH TO CRIME

Right !

Did you ever think of what you're really able to do
In a fit of wrath, in a sudden rise of anger ?

Take a look inside
And don't be deaf
To this bestial call,
The perfect path to crime.

Something to hide,
A crime never revealed,
A rise of violence you once gave vent to.
You want to forget it
But it’s so confused
Like a nightmare behind an half open door.

Take a look inside
And don't be deaf
To this bestial call,
The perfect path to crime.

Flow of adrenaline
Came up to your brain
Paralysed your thoughts
And made you go insane
You could not reject it, it was back again,
This undying hatred overcame your mind.

Now that you’ve faced it,
You won’t be the same.

The image the mirror reflected before sunk into oblivion.
The brightness of your eyes
Reminds you of the unhealthy past.

Take a look inside
And don't be deaf
To this bestial call,
The perfect path to crime.
Track Name: Beyond the pain
BEYOND THE PAIN

He is learning to live with his own regrets,
Creates a bubble and locks himself inside,
Reflecting in the dark and staying proud.

I look behind me and I want to plead guilty.
All that crazy shit I’ve done drags me down to sadness.

Beyond the pain
Lay down for a second to think
Be aware
Try hard to respect the principles
Beyond the pain
You have lost the right to a second chance
Be aware
All those moods make me sick.

How to get forgiveness ?
I don't have nothin' to lose.

Afraid and seduced by bad thoughts
It’s too late, the worst has already been done.
Why should I restrain myself now ?

Beyond the pain
Lay down for a second to think
Be aware
Try hard to respect the principles
Beyond the pain
You have lost the right to a second chance
Be aware
All those moods make me sick.

It seemed that time was on our side
Why did we need to stop ?
I’ve never let anyone come between us.

The hardest was already done,
But beyond the pain,
Her place is by my side.

Pain, beyond the pain
Be aware, a pain...
Track Name: The time to do better
THE TIME TO DO BETTER

I’m paying the price.
Through my bars I observe the horizon.
While I'm sleeping I cannot stop thinking
That I am a prisoner, sealed by death.

The end gave me short notice
And woke me up in tears.
I lightly touch the furniture of the room
And the stars come with me.

Why can I barely see these halos of light ?
Do I have to face this hellish barrier ?

If I could escape for once,
I would take the time to do better.
Don’t forget the end is near,
I bear the burden of what I’ve done.

Learning to control myself,
Hoping it won't come back,
I lock up my moods and feelings
By fear of liking his bad side.

Why can I barely see these halos of light ?
Do I have to face this hellish barrier ?

If I could escape for once,
I would take the time to do better.
Don’t forget the end is near,
I bear the burden of what I’ve done.

Even if I feel bad I've got to respect my own people
Because I won’t control myself
If they lay hands on my soul
Where are the principles ?
There’s no Justice.

Let the voice of my mind speak
And let myself go.
Each second is a mountain to climb,
If the devil gets away
I won’t be able to stop him.

Breaking the pact I took with myself
I cannot bear this constant pressure any more.
The deadline is coming soon,
How to contain myself,
To stop this agony of suffering ?

If I could escape for once,
I would take the time to do better.
Don’t forget the end is near,
I bear the burden of what I’ve done.

If I could escape for once,
I would take the time to do better.
Don’t forget the end is near.
Track Name: The wandering soul
THE WANDERING SOUL

Taking a stand without thinking of him
Since everything was taken from him.
Getting to know the fragrance of death
And being soaked in its breath.

Prayers stack up,
Nobody answers me.
If I was wrong I would speak about those
Who confide heart-to-heart.

He doesn' t like family, even less his friends.
Problems are secrets which intrigue us.
He doesn' t like family, even less his friends.
These mysteries make me mourn the tears of my fate.

Shouting with pain and stretching out his arms,
He begged for help
But knew it was hopeless.
He searched his hours over
Just for an intention, a gesture.
He only wanted justice to be done.

And prayers stack up,
Still no answers.
If I was wrong I would speak about those
Who act heartlessly.

He doesn' t like family, even less his friends.
Problems are secrets which intrigue us.
He doesn' t like family, even less his friends.
These mysteries make me mourn the tears of my fate.

You cling to life, leave your wishes aside and calm down at any price.


You live by your mistakes,
Don’t show any sign of respect.
Don’t hurt yourself with any more feelings.

You live in deep silence
And only give place to chance.

He sees himself as immortal
And will never get out of it.

He doesn' t like family, even less his friends.
Problems are secrets which intrigue us.
He doesn' t like family, even less his friends.
These mysteries make me mourn the tears of my fate.
Track Name: Last resort
LAST RESORT

Ceaselessly suffering, no one to talk to...
Who will take care of us ? Who will support us ?
Listen to these people dying and torturing themselves.
What will become of us? Will we get out of here ?

Everything is good to take, a simple gesture, even forced,
You who, so you say, know it all, get your ass in gear !

Reaped to the marrow, bearing my misfortunes patiently, standing back,
Taking everything into account.
Time flies and you will pay the price,
Forced to accept these feints on multiple occasions,

Everything is good to take, a gesture, even the smallest.
You who, so you say, know it all, come and help !

Never there when needed,
When will you stop, you bastards, this constant bullshitting ?

You were promised we’d always be there
But I know it’s easier said than done.

Losing control,
Having the feeling you always get it all wrong,
I tried to change but
Denying myself makes the problems worse.
Finding a remedy for one’s ill-being
Better try everything since I may lose my life.

Everything is good to take, keep your gestures and your pity.
You who, so you say, know it all, go to hell !

Never there when needed.
When will you become, you bastards, aware of the shit you’ve piled up ?

You've always been promised a way out, but I know
It is easier said than done.

Spending one’s time fighting against the desire to die, passing away,
Making everything stop. Eventually.
Leaving and letting everything rot without remorse.

Everything is lost, nothing can stop the hate brought up to the surface
bit by bit from the evil which moves us.
Everything is connected to suffering,
Everything is muddled, nothing makes sense anymore.

You can't sleep for thinking of it
And you can't escape.
Track Name: Rewriters of truth
REWRITERS OF TRUTH

You tell your truth now but it's far from what it should be.

I'm sick of your misconstructions,
Just lies that you've disguised.
Recollections through your conscience
Are warped then spat out.

Your way of thinking is forever polluted
By bends and oversights
Which help to save face
Every time you're involved.

For truth a necessary fight
Through all the times and for all mankind.

Rewriters of truth
Dishonor History with their poisoned lies.
Rewriters of truth
Write their own story under the mark of the Lie.

All History's falsifiers
Create a gap between present and past
Spreading their words full of poison
To massacre realities.

When memories fade away
They come out of their false sleep
To sway the public opinion
And infiltrate its moral point of view.

For truth a necessary fight
Through all the times and for all mankind.

Rewriters of truth
Dishonor History with their poisoned lies.
Rewriters of truth
Write their own story under the mark of the Lie.

The facts once forgotten
The reconstruction of truth can be so fragile
When the interested liars come on stage
And revisionists come into the light.
Track Name: Against the stream
AGAINST THE STREAM

Shape your own life, your own way
And swear to silence your weakness
Every time you want to look down
Or bow down your head.

Trust your own judgement
and don’t renounce !

Against the stream,
Just be against the stream,
Against !

When you feel down and your will is confused
Catch on to these moments of truth,
Those which give you the strength to contend
Through the meanders of conscience,
To build your critical mind
And move forward.

Trust your own judgement
and don’t renounce !

Against the stream
Just be against the stream,
Against !

So take the other way, wake up and protest,
To clear the path and build your integrity.
Slowly we lost our judgment
On the little but meaningful lacks of liberty.

Shape your own life, your own way
And swear to silence your weakness
You’ve got to show resistance to act under pressure.

Against the stream
Just be against the stream,
Against !
Track Name: An ordinary psychopath
AN ORDINARY PSYCHOPATH

Just near you there
Something doesn’t square,
This glance makes you shudder !
He’s scanning you, waiting for the right moment
To free his deepest sickness.

But he may never act this way,
Restrained behind the gate of conformity.

An ordinary psychopath
Without corpse nor crime
And no glory.

Hiding his own sick leanings
Under a veil of normality.
Why should I suspect him of having done anything
If the evil is just sleeping ?

But he may never act this way,
Restrained behind the gate of conformity.

An ordinary psychopath
Without corpse nor crime
And no glory.

You should be frightened by the madness inside, inside of him.

His chains will break one day !

The voice in his brain tells him to kill
But social restraint stops his hand.
Just in time, so far,
Until the sordid news item !

But he may never act this way,
Restrained behind the gate of conformity.

An ordinary psychopath
Without corpse nor crime
And no glory.

Will I become his first victim ?
Who will be the next on the list ?
I am so afraid of the day of reckoning
And losing my life in this hideous way.
Track Name: Irradiated
IRRADIATED

You live in fear and don’t see what’s real.
In front of such a problem nobody can face.
Enjoy every moment, content yourself with the remaining time.
Forget... Future is a formality.

I can’t stop thinking about the worst.
I hang on to my friends.
Everyone is afraid to hear : "you’re irradiated".

IRRADIATED

Let’s make like nothing happened and let us seize the day ?
Full of hate and contempt the people of the earth
do not want to keep silent any more.

We may have been warned,
We still wanted to go further.
Everyone is afraid to hear : "you’re irradiated".

IRRADIATED

The world has turned insane, no law, no rules, no love anymore.
Here we are architects of our own destruction.
What a shame !

There’s nothing else to say…
Because this air will exterminate us…
Everyone is afraid to hear : "you’re irradiated".

IRRADIATED
Track Name: Drive me blind
DRIVE ME BLIND

Fill me, haunt me, drown me (drown me)
Don’t let me breathe this air.
Take me away, fool me (fool me)
A relief seems so fair.

Corrode me, hide me, heal me (heal me)
Erase the things I can’t stand.
Push me against my limits (push me)
Tell me I’m not so weak.

Feeling the substance inside of me
Running deep (running deep) through my veins
and setting me free.
The veil is now hung on reality,
It’s not a sin for me.

Drive me blind,
Drive me blind !
Chase away my dreams
Bury my hopes
Into the depths.
I do believe (I do believe)
I deserve to be offered
some redemption.

Burn me, lose me, save me (save me)
From the demons of the past.
Improve me, strike me, hit me (hit me),
This one may be the last.

Feeling the substance inside of me
Running deep (running deep) through my veins
and setting me free.
The veil is now hung on reality,
It’s not a sin for me.

Drive me blind,
Drive me blind !
Chase away my dreams
Bury my hopes
Into the depths.
I do believe (I do believe)
I deserve to be offered
some redemption.

Slowly I drift away.
Finally free,
I let myself go.
You're my best medicine,
My only solution.
