The Unorthodox
We were born pagans, never to live by the
book of lies, we, who blash the church
and spit on the cross, for we are the
unorthodox.

Enigma
Psalm 1 'The Blessing'

The Priest:
Confess your sins to God, don't be afraid.
Just like me of flesh and blood you're
made. I can heal your wounds and cleanse
your soul, but never return all those
lives you stole.
The Witch:
'You can burn in hell'
The Preacher
God gives you shelter at heavens shore,
abandon your thoughts to the mighty.
Into the chapel of holyness, live for the
sacred empire, engender the Enigma.
The Unorthodox
Sacerdotal majesty, a recreant nonentity?
Do you remember when you said.
The Priest
I can heal the dead.
The Unorthodox
Paroxysmal ecstacy, dementia or deity?
Sapless you are crawling, to confess
your sins?

Psalm 2 'Celestial Dissension'

The further side, a confounded lie,
panegyration a reunion of riddles? The
sorrow, the funeral truth, mentally
fraud wih pseudo relics, enigma, unholy,
ungodly, commander of the regeneration.
Insidious and caught, implored by disgra-
ce. Inhumation... The burial of man. Con-
fession... Unify all evil. Deep inside, the
unknown quest, the sphere is so depres-
sed, a harp with broken strings, and the gro-
und, this mazy world do still exist, the
ghouls arise from the mist. Renascent
through the holy scripture, submission
to what for us is illusion. From the tene-
brous depths of history, who will divulge
the mystery. Unguiculated, unholy,
ungodly, commander of the regenerati-
on, insidious and caught, implored by dis-
grace, inhumation... The burial of man,
comfession... Unify all evil.

Psalm 3 'The Loss of Hallowed Life'

Ha, ha, ha, haoow.

Incipience To The Butchery
The ghoul has reached my coffin now he
smash the lid. All I see is darkness and
two shining eyes. Crawling to the church
and in a stream of light I see my mutila-
ted remains gore instead of flesh. Rotten
and filled with maggots I search for
modern life I would die to see, my kids
and wife. A scream break the silence (*) a
human being died. Shocked of this morbid
sight. Crawling in the night. I'm so near
my dying place, I can see my loved. I open
the door and there she stands, I hear the
children scream.

Lead: Andreas
Lead: Sami

I saw people die, as dead as I was. The
children puked then died, love has tur-
ned to carrion.

In The Veins/Darker Than Black
(... eye can see you) Look into my eyes, what
do you see? I'm not man, I am no demon. I
color you red, my murder's fuckin' art
son of the dead. I was never born. I send
you back to pre-birth. Beyond this life
you shall dwell. I'm your fuckin' saviour
suffer my everlasting pain. Don't even
think about dying, you poor excuse of a
human being, in the veins of evil, black
blood flow eternally. This sabbath of
sickness; proves my soul's bizarr. The
master of morbidity, my cuts don't leave
scars. Endless temptation to sicken the
blessed, I swallow your heart as I carve in
your flesh... In your flesh! Born of the
dead, I am blasphemy. I'll end your fanta-
sies, save you from mankind just like
lambs to the slaughter. God made you
blind, darker than black. I am the serpent
of Eden... Eden. I've tasted the herbs of
lust and desire. I am no enemy, I drain
you of life and leave you in fire... Fire. In
the veins.

Everlasting (Epidemic Reign Part 3)
Bleeding tears, crying blood a human
(being) emotionally odd, hear the sight,
feel the sound, spirits call from all aro-
und, as I wander closer to what I'll never
be a distant light approaches to prove
(my) insanity, the shadow pointed its fin-
ger, lies caresses my face it tells me it's
the bringer of what shall, what shall end
the phase.

Chorus:
Everlasting, unapproachable,
neverending, the immortal
one always casting shadows on the gro-
und. A blackened heart that won't stop to
pound. Everlasting, everlasting pane.
Reach the point of of no return as our pla-
net slowly burns. Cracking ground's wat-
chinme as I walk through river hades,
and soon my heart is frozen it'll never
stop to beat, nothing in this dimension
can bring me my defeat, the secrets in
your arteries will forever remain unsaid,
our sun is slowly dying, never, never to
burn red. (repeat chorus) you were meant
to be another one, time has come, frozen
earth, the stillness, the world will come
and go, (repeat chorus)

After Afterlife
I am the master of your dreams, I am the
creator of your screams, I pulverize your
inner will invisible, no blood will spill.
Sent by the powers of the wind, now you
will regret that you sined. I am in com-
mand over earth and sea. I hold the key
to your lost infinity. Yeah. I am crawling
inside. Yeah. I drain you of your pride. The sha-
dows in the the darkness, are no reflection.
Just the souls of anger pointing your
direction. Enter the tunnel. Feel the
smell of your grave, demonic majesty,
you're lost to darkness... After, after,
afterlife, I am rising after twilight. I am
the reason why tomorrow never comes.
Festerday goes on and on. Satan is my
darkened son. Did life itself pull me
thru this hell? There's no time so it will
never tell. In this world of boiling heat, I
faced my final, fucking defeat. None
shall save, I enslave. Laughing, this can't
be true. Dying, they came to steal your
world.

Beyond The Unknown
Take a trip with me, to endless insanity
where no souls could live. Where no
soule could rest the echoes of tormenti-
on, rips so psychic wounds into your
mind. The longer we go, feeling the anaestesia of
your soul, rise above the seas, the seas of
torment. (Chorus: ) A creation of abnormal
souls an evil place that grows the dark-
ness of the abyss knows a creation of thee.
beyond the unknown life? Now take a trip
with me to a world of insanity where no
souls could live. Where no souls could
rest the echoes of tormention. Rips so
psychic wounds into your mind. The lon-
ger we go. (repeat chorus) Go... Ia...

Nocturnal
Intro: A hymn to the nightly

(Preserve, preserve) Preserve me from
the rays of dawn. I only feast at night. My
sharp claws taste the flesh. I am the
angel of the twilight. With deadly charm
and sweet caresses I touch the virgin
skin. As my soul becomes one with yours,
your pain is my gain. Come with me. Beco-
me eternity, as you die! Join & die to re-
arise, re-arise, I am of nocturnal nature.
I cannotstand the sun. I am an abominati-
on, blood's my kinda fun. As the darkness
sweeps my castle, and cast shadows on
the northern light. Now my sleep is over.
I spread my wings across the night,
human but still a creature I trust for
human blood, now begins my ritual I
swallow your fucking soul! Come with
me, become eternity, as you fucking die.
Join'n'die to re-arise, re-arise...

A Curfew For The Damned (...Blind Belief)
You true beiever. Die man deciever, for
your prophecies. A fatal release. The tem-
ple of the holy. We will blaspheme. There
are no blessings, only a dream. Christia-
nity = Insanity. Just another sect. None
shall resurrect. If once you have been
'signed' to the creator of mankind. You're
far beyond control captured soul. Light
the candle. Light the lie. Yet another soul
will die. The blessing that'll never come.
Lies to us, truth to some. As I see the
candles lightning up their 'sanctuaries'.
When we die what happens only obitua-
ries? ? When only remains remain, and
noone's left to blame. All words are
deiable, go and burn your bible. A cur-
few for the damned. A curfew for the
damned. (*) Realize, realize. A curfew
for the damned. Real eyes. Realize a curfew
for the damned. God is just a dream,
kneeling at the altar of lies. Illusions of
a false paradise. Deny the crucifixion of
a their 'saviour' Jesus Christ. To the force
of heaven, none was sacrificed. Their mas-
ses are all erratic ruled by a sick fanatic,
possessed by demons (? ) Scch! I hear cries
of a human sacrifice, and when will it
end? ? A curfew for the damned.

Cold Sun (Epidemic Reign Part 4)
(03: 41) - Gazing at the sky colred with a
gelam yet unseen. Birds no longer fly.
It's not a dream this blinding beam.
(03: 42) - Panic, someone realized. Every-
thing is iced the manic depression of the
centuries- The world is soon devastated
With ease. (03: 43) - The temperature decrea-
ses. Watch the frozen sean, as my pulse go
down. The king has lost its crown. (03: 44) -
Cold sun, will never shine (*) (03: 45) - Free-
zing clouds, ready to fall. Killing us all.
Time after time I hear prophets that yell,
We've got life for sale. Children (now)
mentally deformed. Remember the sun
and how it warmed. A natural system is
wasted. Earth saw no grace, dead. (03: 47) -
Everything is captured in capsules of ice.
Still I wonder will they all awake in para-
dise? Eyes of ice cannot see frozen souls
unable too flee. (03: 48) - The maze of my exi-
stence, there's no resistance. Finally I
leave this shell, rotting soul, I can feel
the smell.... Of hell. Terminal end. My
final peace, I descend. Everything is left
to infest, but even the maggots will rest.
Cold sun.

The Day Of Maturity
Massive nuclear death. Screams of pain
and sorrow all has lost its faith, for
them there's no tomorrow. Bodies all
around, smell of burnt flesh and vomit
black and white has turned to grey. Earth
of horror and decay Bush and Gorbatjov
dead. Humanity has lost its world it's one
thing has won? Burial... The day of maturity.
Suffocation... The day of dying parents
look for their children in masses of gore
and bones smell the rancid flesh. The
toxic taste is in the air (repeat chorus)
Dyin' the slowly way. Your hunger beco-
mes your decay eating your own flesh,
the horrible way you end destroying
beyond belief. The day of maturity look
what it's done to me. I'm off the edge of
sanity. (repeat chorus)

Dead But Dreaming
Cold, pale, ro rest I'm laid no shivers
from inside. Entombed and forgotten,
here, forever I shall hide. Feel no blood
flow in me. But I feel so alive. I feel my
body slowly rot in my wet grave. Deceased
and putrifacted but my soul I have saved.
Feel no blood flow in me, feel no blood.
When I have ceased, and death is real.
When I'm lowered down. Beyond my
destiny. Past the day mourning. Enter the
twilight of death thru the night of pos-
session, to the dawn of dreams. Dead but
dreaming. Enter the dawn of dreams,
enter the dawn of the dead... As I die, as I
fade. In my dreams, I am awake. As I fade
from this rotting world, dead as hell.
Trapped in myself. My life among the
living was nothing but pain, but now I'm
set free beyond my destiny. I've been the
one who's giving. Slowly drained of life.
Dream my enemy, forever I'm your sleep.

When All Is Said
When all is said and all is done. Beneath
the ground, and man lies dead. When all
the earth is a cold grave and no more
brave. Bright things have birth when coo-
ling sun and stone-cold world together
hurled. Flame up as one o sons of men.
When all is flame what of your fame and
splendour then? When all is fire and fla-
ming air what of your rare and high desi-
re to turn the clod to a thing divine the
earth a shrine and man the God? ?
