Track Name: Nowhere to Hide
Am I the only one who cannot breathe in this crowd?
Am I the only one who fears they all are after me?

When you look around, you see
The mass of hungry vultures
You cannot feel anything
But disgust and hate
You are still trying vainly
To hide your fear behind the mask
You are still trying vainly
To hide that you're desperate

Inside, outside, everywhere you feel so tight
You are so tired but you cannot find a place to rest
No chance to win the fight, you have nowhere to hide
All you can do is to suffer and silently detest

When you look around, you see
The mass of broken machines
Though they are moving
You're not sure they are truly alive
You are still trying vainly
To avoid those evil engines
You are still trying vainly
Not to stay under their knife

Inside, outside, everywhere you feel so tight
You are so tired but you cannot find a place to rest
No chance to win the fight, you have nowhere to hide
All you can do is to suffer and silently detest

No matter how you're screaming
The only place to go is the void inside your empty head
Anyhow nobody hears
Every night you safely hide in the empty world of dead

Am I the only one who cannot fight against the nil
Am I the only one who fears it is nonsense to try

So you closed your eyes and forgot everything to save your life
So you closed your mind and forgot all the pain
You became one of them, the sleepwalkers, the scavengers of time
Who gave up all efforts, nothing to lose, nothing to gain

Inside, outside, everywhere you feel so tight
You are so tired but you cannot find a place to rest
No chance to win the fight, you have nowhere to hide
All you can do is to suffer and silently detest

No matter how you're screaming
The only place to go is the void inside your empty head
Anyhow nobody hears
Every night you safely hide in the empty world of dead
Track Name: Order of Chaos
So here I am, drunk as fuck again and more than full of life
Now I have the force to break the lock, escape the cage
No time for turning back, I am the one who never has enough
Every wall in my way is being leveled to the ground with rage

Waste it all, down the drain
Burn it down so it can rise again
Now remain strong, bite the pain
And smash your head against the wall

So here I am, born again more powerful, ready for more
To satisfy my thirst I'm seeking for another hit
Becoming furious, I will be the devil at your door
I cannot feed my hunger, it's like I am addicted

Breaking the role of victim, no turning back, now it's my turn
It will be cruel and unfair but now I'm too far to return

When all your hope suddendly dies
Burn all that remains from the old
From the dead the new light will arise
The order of Chaos

Waste it all, down the drain
Burn it down so it can rise again
Now remain strong, bite the pain
And smash your head against the wall

This is war and for victory I have to sacrifice
All guilts and wishes from the past that only make me blind
Need to start to believe that all my memories are just white lies
Now I'm on my way and salvation's what I will find

Breaking the role of victim, no turning back, now it's my turn
It will be cruel and unfair but now I'm too far to return

When all your hope suddendly dies
Burn all that remains from the old
From the dead the new light will arise
The order of Chaos
Track Name: Psychotic Overdrive
Human life is just a fucking game
But every time it ends the same
And every player dies before
Finding one simple goal
I know you‘ll try to change your fate
But you will fail, now it’s too late
Your body will be dead before
You manage to free your soul
Just fight your sanity!
Destroy the chain that holds your mind in shape!
Find the way above the space through poisoning your brain!
Cause all this world is a nightmare
Give up your mind and you’ll escape
For finding out the holy truth you have to go insane

So you want to run away?
The only way is through the gates of hell
You decided to play
Next day you’ll be born as someone else
Giving up the search for sense
Flying to some other space
Crisis of existence?
Be prepared, it’s time to wake up

Psychotic overdrive!

Once in a dream I met a guy
Who reminded me that I’ll die
And inside my frightened mind he came to show his might
Blinded by his coal dark coat
By the gleam of his sharp scythe
I decided for a spiritual suicide

So you feel like you‘re the king?
Like you can easily rule everything?
Now you live in your own world
Now you live in your own lie
But beyond the skin you feel
That just nothing you get is real
You will be haunted by doubts
Forever, until you die
You are all alone!
Everyone’s deaf but you still hear the tone
Of the death knell ringing
This day may be the last
But before you reach the end of the way
There are a few rounds left to play
Shoot up in vein! Unchain the brain!
Before you turn to dust

So you want to run away?
The only way is through the gates of hell
You decided to play
Next day you’ll be born as someone else
Giving up the search for sense
Flying to some other space
Crisis of existence?
Be prepared, it’s time to wake up

Psychotic overdrive!

Once In a dream I met a guy
Who reminded me that I’ll die
And inside my frightened mind he came to show his might
Blinded by his coal dark coat
By the gleam of his sharp scythe
I decided for a spiritual suicide

It's just a dream and I'm the guy
Who reminds you that you will die
And inside your frightened mind I came to show my might
Blinded by my coal dark coat
By the gleam of my sharp scythe
You decided for a spiritual suicide
Track Name: Golden Door
Dazed and confused you cannot tell for certain if this all is real
You are aware that there's no proof that all your life's not just a dream
What should you do when you can't believe what you see or what you feel
You've been put into the madhouse where nothing is as it seems

Slowly melting down
Descending through nine circles of hell
And your lack of will is tightening the noose around your neck
The stairs are steep and rotten
It is only a matter of time until all this will fall
All hope will fade to black

You feel no love, you feel no hate to all this world you just despise
You're like a broken mirror, showing only disappointment
Gave up your illusions, you're just trying not to close your eyes
Cannot trust in anything until the end...until the end

There's no one else to blame
All you can feel is shame
So far from the golden door
But you can't go on anymore

Can't go beyond the hill
You're loosing faith in your free will
Now time has come to pay
The time for you to pass away

You overcame your fear but now there's nothing left to fight
The way is clear but at the end there is no goal which you can trust
Only illusions that try to bring you down
You're like a broken mirror, cracked and all covered in dust

There's no one else to blame
All you can feel is shame
So far from the golden door
But you can't go on anymore

Can't go beyond the hill
You're loosing faith in your free will
Now time has come to pay
The time for you to pass away
Track Name: Night Walk
The storm is raging through the insomniac night
It will soon be dawn but I still cannot fall asleep
So I get up and leave the house heading to the river
Stop halfway on the bridge and just stare to the deep

I watch the lightning, my only glow of hope that can kill
While the rain washes out the venom from my skin
And I can see the reflection of my star fading away
The sun will soon arise to behold my last sin

I wish it never ends
This moment of lucidity
In a world that has no sense
I feel like I understand it all

It really doesn't matter if I jump or not
In both cases the dormant star will rise again

It's getting light outside and the storm is calming down
I get up and try to remember this cryptic dream
But I know how useless is to try to find the meaning
So I give it up and wait until this thoughts turn to steam
Track Name: The Consumer
I am at war against my taste
Against my lust, my need need of thrill
I cannot resist, I must feed it once again
Appease my thirst, my desire
Starvation's beating my will
I must enjoy, eat and fuck, consume to remain sane

Desperate attempt to fill the void
Where nothing is everything
Remember that being is desire
And desire is suffering
You will never find the cure

I am at war against my taste
My taste to waste everything
No exceptions, it hides behind my every act
I'm on a hunt for the golden calf
For might and joy, for the One Ring
I want everything to pass through my digestive tract

Desperate attempt to fill the void
Escape the blue light
Life is a maze built from craving
And you are lost inside
You'll never find the way out

I want it all and I want more
I want more pain, love and hate
I rape my senses to absorb it all, it is my bane
I am a slave of consumption
It's a natural human trait
No way to resist, I must taste it once again
