Music: Dannov As lights go down on the universe, the mob stands and cheers Forward without motion, direction was lost when the heart swung open Time without numbers, it all becomes so thin and clear Emotional introspection derails the journey from its course I don't want to look inside The art of giving back emotion to ones self Daily expenditure falls so far out of proportion Facing up to the obvious issue, welcomes the challenge of perseverance Invigorated, I turn and face the wind I don't want to look inside, teardrops frozen as I listen I don't want to look inside, the coast is clear except for this vision I don't want to look inside, this weakened vessel that I must Christen I don't want to look inside, this living hell that I must live in... Solo: Dannov, Moeller A death was dealt too soon To know about the end When life has just begun its journey Finite, pointless the following years Giving in to the one thing it holds so dear Connection that was left uninhibited A tightness in my chest at the thought of loss Obvious, this weakness has made me stronger Like a forlorn weeping mother clutching her stillborn infant I can't let go…

Music: Dannov Turn away from me Don't look my way Don't remember me Forget all about me It hurts so deeply Imagining the loss Remembering you Knowing they will lose me Turn away from me Don't look my way Don't remember me Forget all about me It hurts so deeply Imagining the loss Remembering you Knowing they will lose me So I walk away Distant become the cries Better if they hate me Easier to forget And the hate will grow And they'll blame it on me And they'll cry again Just like I did for you Solo: Dannov Turn away from me Don't look my way Don't remember me Forget all about me

Music: Dannov, Green Beyond the darkness I watch my creation As fires burn and humans scream All life looks on in horror This is the day my planet died It was so perfect then, when the atmosphere moved and the center boiled Turning on it rests perfectly from nearest star The life forms grew healthy as the turning went on Then one species emerged as the dominant force and threatened the balance It couldn't last The species took control, overpopulated and started consuming The perfection was ruined and the countdown began Draining the liquid throughout the ground beneath them The caves and caverns lost strength and started to implode The ground shook and they screamed Down they fell Murdered by the earth The fourth cycle of cleansing My planet will not survive Magma takes over the crust engulfing all living things Explosions from pockets of pressure Begin the combustion Begin the end Solo: Moeller So proud I am of my planet Quite a long time for a ball of water and dirt Too bad it was infected It was contaminating the rest The fourth cycle of cleansing My planet will not survive Beyond the darkness I watch my creation As fires burn and humans scream All life looks on in horror This is the day my planet died Solo: Dannov, Moeller, Dannov, Moeller

Music: Dannov The early morning sounds awaken The sounds of children laughing at play The day's activities commence as they always have Its a beautiful day...the prophet will speak to us The morning meal is a hurried event Simple food gathered from the garden The babies are restless calmed by their mothers song We head out of our cottage to the pavilion Down the walkway, we've made this trip a hundred times Congressman Ryan left our settlement today We must trust in the words of our prophet The pigs are on their way to take away our thoughts So drink little baby from this syringe, and I will do the same Now lie down Solo: Dannov

Music: Green Fear, feel the fire of fear burning inside you Hate, feel the fire of hate burning inside you We don't want you to love Hate and fear Nothingness Look at the blood streaming Hate and fear Nothingness Fear, feel the fire of fear burning inside you Hate, feel the fire of hate burning inside you Follow the darkness and strike up the light The churches have burned and ashes arise Fear, feel the fire of fear burning inside you Hate feel the fire of hate burning inside you Darkness In the shadows we dwell Evil Gives us power Satan The great deceiver Hell Is where we live

Music: Dannov Stand up Step up The cool mist settles on morning The young men breathe shallowly Preparing to start moving forward When the colonel give the decree One foot in front of the other One hundred strong all ready to win The soldiers call out the warnings Their carbines trained to kill Three warnings means death Three warnings the last sound they hear Some will try to escape All will meet the end With only one exception One of one hundred will live like a king Solo: Dannov, Moeller From the halftrack killing One by one they fell Miles passed beneath Soon will be the end Solo: Dannov On down the road Down to the last three Most have died Many died Three warnings A dark figure in the distance
7.
Music: Moeller The call came much too late, middle of the night Blood sweeps through my veins, you won't come I don't want to know, it just makes it worse You feel nothing... I oppress you, its all my fault You're the victim and do no wrong What's your excuse this time? Wanting to escape? I can't go on... Senseless self-destruction I oppress you, its all my fault You're the victim and do no wrong... I want to die now I want you to die I want some peace now I hate this life You bow back down and face the mirror Wash your guilt down with my bitter tear The day begins Your tyranny I'm sure you feel so innocent You won't die, you live to torture me. Solo: Moeller

Music: Dannov Before me she bows down Her lips receiving myself, her eyes staring straight into mine Hips form a teardrop Grab her hair and thrusting, she cries gasping for air to breathe in Tight my grasp, she flails Her mouth stretched, full of cock She holds me tightly Gulping, her thirst unquenched In a fluid motion Her legs wrap around my hips Hips sway rhythmically Bodies now disappear Passion now writhes alone Once two, now we are one Solo: Moeller We are one Now we are one She is dead She fucks like she's alive Before me she bows down Her lips receiving myself, her eyes staring straight into mine Hips form a teardrop Grab her hair and thrusting, she cries gasping for air to breathe in

Music: Dannov Fool me once, shame on you Fool me twice, shame on me This book that they told us to live by Will surely take the pain away Take the pain away Slaves bow in reverence Ignoring the cancer Our god will kill us all The bible tells us so Soldiers march to drums of war With crucifix hung round their necks Angry earth to claim the flesh of infidels I refuse to take part Suffering disproves god My god is strong enough He exists inside me Soldiers march to drums of war with crucifix hung round their necks Angry earth to claim the flesh of infidels Soldiers march to drums of war with crucifix hung round their necks My war is not fought by them I hate their god Their god who tells lies Their god who controls Hate their god They've gotten so far away from the bottom line The point was lost in distant past Religion lies Solo: Moeller Take control of our lives Take control of this war Blood for oil Blood for god Oil is god, power corrupts Money is god Fuck you god There are so many reasons to give up on religion I won't play their game There are so many reasons to give up on religion I won't play by their rules Now I am burning their book To cleanse my thoughts of lies The power that they once had Floats away in the ashes Now we are burning their flag To cleanse our thoughts of lies The power that they once had Floats away in the ashes

music: Dannov Now that you understand You will go peacefully But I still regret Not hearing you pleading Pulling you closer feeling your breasts Pressing so firmly, aroused! I take your life, just to feel the ecstasy My knife in you, as you are my willing victim To caress your flesh, and to feel the blood soaked moisture My only regret, you cannot feel this more than once Your breasts swollen to the touch Warm breath drops upon your neck Closing your eyes so tightly Anxiously await my next move Insert deep into you Womb like warmth of your cunt Further I drive my arm Until I reach my elbow Pulling you closer feeling your breasts Pressing so firmly, aroused!

music: Dannov Enveloped by waves of violently burning hatred Pulling from all sides, nothingness beckons persistently The knowledge of utter humanity and its toils I can feel my own insides in full view of my enemy Left behind, forgotten To think that your cries and heard -an impossibility Left to suffer without justification -alone He who saved so many will never save again Non-truths and deception roll down his dirty cheek Never to repent to suck a filthy fucking liar The Christ of those unwilling to make their own way A mind open to images of a divine bliss The only way to enter is to stop living life Enveloped by waves of violently burning hatred Pulling from all sides nothingness beckons persistently Giving away your love gift To the god who speaks through man How jaded your simple little mind has become He who saved so many will never save again Have you ever met your god face to face So called miracles but how can you know A simple explanation of your pathetic dependencies Bow before the altar and all your sins are washed away Just your peace of mind transforming into image An idol for all to fear and beg for forgiveness from But where have all your miracles gone Without your belief you find no meaning This shallow story written so long ago Why can't these sheep awaken solo: Moeller A loose knit collection of rules and regulation Calling for one to give ones self to a filthy fucking super- hero Walk on water, heal leper, where has this magician gone Understand the error presented by the tellers of folk and lore Releasing this source of all my anger Letting go of Sunday fucking fairy tales The knowledge of oneself should take priority I will never bow before your Christ of a forgotten time solo: Dannov
