Track Name: Outrage
OUTRAGE
MUSIC: NATHALIE MARKOCH & ELIAS CHECCO | LYRICS: NATHALIE MARKOCH

define the meaning of this life
again you fail to impress
for what you choose to understand
lacks in all common sense

diverse delusions of the core are based
on the farce of the unknown
for what I choose to prove you wrong
lies on its own

does it stand to reason or not?

for all illusions fall
into the deeps of the most
dangerous of fears
into the claws of the fierce grips
of a headless beast
ignorance…
outraging your psyche with high treason!

revenge comes from the ones who fight
who apostatize inside
and when it comes to speak their minds
strive ‘til their breaths are on fire

balance the might that grows within
you’re clever if you can succeed
to encrust the wisdom of the night
and spread the word of chaos stars

does it stand to reason or not?

for all illusions fall
into the deeps of the most
dangerous of fears
into the claws of the fierce grips
of a headless beast
who says the truth? which god is true?
whom to believe?
consciousness blacks out!

guitar solo #1: elias checco

into the deeps of the most
dangerous of fears
into the claws of the fierce grips
of a headless beast

Track Name: Lack of Judgment
LACK OF JUDGMENT
MUSIC: NATHALIE MARKOCH & ELIAS CHECCO | LYRICS: NATHALIE MARKOCH

so cumbersome the endeavour
to dodge the quirk of fate
adduce selective memory
and force your way through it
too young to see, too frail to be
hard to reach out, to clear off all these doubts
too faint to mend, too fake to embrace
cracked opened pride, fixed slumber in disguise

oh no! it’s time to freeze this sophistry
to finally establish principles
fleeing in awe, summoning death
recalling ancient hidden texts
it’s time to amend what’s been unglued
to try and live this life anew!
too tired to try, too sick to fight
defined by rage, against this uselessness
too dark to shine, so ashamed to deny
revived on graves, wore a half-naked self

oh no! it’s time to freeze this sophistry
to finally establish principles
fleeing in awe, summoning death
recalling ancient hidden texts
it’s time to amend what’s been unglued
to try and live this life anew!

just break free from all!
by clearing a mind that’s been corrupted
by the hands of pseudo gods who thought
they could seize back their inner broken child’s innocence
through this tragic soul covered in stones
that could break free from the prison imposed!
so cumbersome the endeavor
to dodge the quirk of fate
adduce selective memory
and force your way through it
too keen to admit, to accept defeat
feeding the false, playing one of their pawns
although we’re harmed, we’ve bled while drowned
crawled ‘round the fence, kept blinded by revenge

oh no! it’s time to freeze this sophistry
to finally establish principles
fleeing in awe, summoning death
recalling ancient hidden texts
it’s time to amend what’s been unglued
to try and live this life anew!

just break free from all!
by clearing a mind that’s been corrupted
by the hands of pseudo gods who thought
they could seize back their inner broken child’s innocence
through this tragic soul covered in stones
that could break free from the prison imposed by them all!

ugh...it’s your lack of judgment!

Track Name: Condemned to Existence
CONDEMNED EXISTENCE
MUSIC: NATHALIE MARKOCH & ELIAS CHECCO | LYRICS: NATHALIE MARKOCH

it’s getting harder to control
sudden impulses of this soil
for how much longer will this last?

listen you fools...
from within this earth it screams damnation!

should I defend what’s meant to be?
it feels impossible to breath
while choking up on tears
mankind can’t get enough for free
it’s laughable to watch them breed
they’ve turned their eyes to stones…

...but I’m able to gaze the thorns
of futile blinding tries
that will never preserve true wisdom
for future nations!

now let’s just figure out this war
chessboard is set, foul bishop’s turn
damning it all at his fucking pace!

close to the edge
you defy your race to fuel the faceless!

the downcast speaks while terror reigns
abandoned tribes are left for dead
as humans just intoxicate
still kingdom rules to usurp the throne
reads: "let man bleed while snatching gold"
they’ve turned their eyes to stones…

… but I’m able to gaze the thorns
of futile blinding tries
that will never preserve true wisdom
for future nations!

guitar solo: elias checco

Track Name: Bloodstream (Interlude)
BLOODSTREAM | INTERLUDE
MUSIC: NATHALIE MARKOCH & ELIAS CHECCO | LYRICS: NATHALIE MARKOCH

words are drowning in
as rivers wash it all
descendant of the sun
still laughing at our mourns

sunbeam freezing cold
as we expose our souls
attempting to control
what’s left of human’s fall

the weakness
the shame
is stronger…
stronger than me…
Track Name: Backhand Game
BACKHAND GAME
MUSIC: NATHALIE MARKOCH & ELIAS CHECCO | LYRICS: NATHALIE MARKOCH

rage seats in thee
but instead of causing pain
it seeps, the rain
diluting this distaste

run, crawl...
until your knees disjoint
while fleeing in awe
as they discharge the gun

inured to let the strong
knead their greed
too certain do they know
your ignorance is bliss

despite all the smoke screens
use your mind to finally tackle this backhand game!

white, strong, tall
a delusion from the host
defined by haste
of creating disarray

resemblance of the old
days to come
the hard lesson once taught
was long ago in-urned

despite all the smoke screens
use your mind to finally tackle this backhand game!

rise for the future, for the past!
for the present that will last only if we fight
to recover what was ours
to redeem the key of wisdom and high trust!

rise for the future, for the past!
for the present that will last only if we fight
to recover what was ours
redeem the key of trust!

guitar solo: elias checco

inured to let the strong
knead their greed
too certain do they know
your ignorance is bliss

despite all smoke screens
use your mind to finally tackle their backhand game!
devious minds oppress the horde
they wring out the value, the passion, the wrath from our hearts!

rise for the future, for the past!
for the present that will last only if we fight
to recover what was ours
to redeem the key of wisdom and high trust!

rise for the future, for the past!
for the present that will last only if we fight
to recover what was ours
redeem the key of trust!

Track Name: The Fraud
THE FRAUD
MUSIC: NATHALIE MARKOCH & JOSE A. GAZZO | LYRICS: NATHALIE MARKOCH

going to hell and back
is the only way for self-improvement
how could you lead to fight
when your gridded sight just meets the edge?

condemning all but yourself
and the one that follows your own blindness
equals governing a truth
that's worth only for you

and we'll find out (out!)
find the answer
and we'll find out
the truth beneath the lies...

how am I supposed to behave
when your double moral blots out doctrines?
quelling the aims to improve
on the path of thousand hundred herds

and none of you should tell me now
how to conquer the unknown I'm facing!
for every second counts
'cause the more you wait you loose!

and we'll find out (out!)
find the answer
and we'll find out
the truth beneath the lies
and we'll find out (out!)
find the answer
and we'll debate
the vows you took just to line up

finally we meet again
thought your masquerade dispels?
we're all damn strong
to face the fraud against our rights!

feeling the blade down my throat
to remind myself I'm living your farce
damnation of the sense
degradation of the human race

so how do I look through your eyes?
arrogant, false, subversive, misguided!
you disowned the land
by oppressing own free will

and we'll find out (out!)
find the answer
and we'll find out
the truth beneath the lies
and we'll find out (out!)
find the answer
and we'll debate
the vows you took just to line up

finally we meet again
thought your masquerade dispels?
we're all damn strong
to face the fraud against our rights
be your own guide!

guitar solo: elias checco

… to lineup.
finally we meet again
thought your masquerade dispels?
we're all damn strong
to face the fraud against our rights
finally we meet again
thought your masquerade dispels?
we're all damn strong to face the fraud our rights!
Track Name: Let them come
LET THEM COME
MUSIC: NATHALIE MARKOCH & ELIAS CHECCO | LYRICS: NATHALIE MARKOCH

rise! rise! rise! rise in front of me!
rise in strife!
just gather your pride and rise!
rise in front of me!

too weak to stand your ground
trying to cause uproar against freedom of choice
creating buzz from void
again you’re set to praise the cross

i’m real, but who’s damn pure
to grab my throat to proof my tongue’s still venomous?
your fate’s around the clock
whether you choose to waste your life or not!

let them come, son
let them come...
let them come, son
they’ll try to seize the throne

decide who do you serve
to almighty gods or to the fear I hate to smell
recruitment of the young
won’t be enough to crush mettle

false prophet, false regret
placed by your hand have made my life plain abhorrent
it’s you, your ignorance towards the truth of
human nature laws!

let them come, son
let them come...
let them come, son
they’ll try to seize the throne

downward! suddenly delusions
spiral! come raging throughout and out
free fall! constraining while you face
decay! the truth on your own!

rise! rise! rise! rise in front of me!
rise in strife!
just gather your pride and rise!
rise in front of me!

damn cancer of the soul
you cannot beat myself against this mass control
a creation from the gods
who’re bound to rot with humans dross

farewell to bend my neck
to bow my head before your grand appearance
the stage will topple down
along with masterminds of this old farce!

let them come, son
let them come...
let them come, son
they’ll try to seize the throne

downward! suddenly delusions
spiral! come raging throughout and out
free fall! constraining while you face
decay! the truth on your own

guitar solo: elias checco

downward! suddenly delusions

let them come, son

RAVENOUS SPECTRE
MUSIC: NATHALIE MARKOCH & ELIAS CHECCO | LYRICS: NATHALIE MARKOCH

common sense, a term I haven’t used
since when I crashed against
impotence, derived from my unskillfulness
to stop this going further

unless I smoke out the fear, recoil the shame
unless I stop myself to remember who I am

again and again I just keep telling myself
there’s so much more to unveil to regain our strength
though to reach further
has nothing to do with brutal force nor pure ambition
just clear your mind and the silence you will find
is the key to unlock your truest path

deceive all! that’s the rule, the humans loss
draining all! they’ll never know the depths

clarity, discern allies from enemies
they’re getting closer...
trickery, ravenous spectres following
your mind ‘til suicide!

the scheme is set, we reign
governments as our assassins
as you grow old sickness crawls into you!
the scheme is set to oppress

consciously, uncover facts that lie
beneath your inner ocean
patiently, try to go through your old beliefs
let’s stop this going further!

unless I smoke out the fear, recoil the shame
unless I stop myself to remember who I am

again and again I just keep telling myself
there’s so much more unveil to regain our strength
though to reach further has nothing to do
with brutal force nor pure ambition
just clear your mind and the silence you’ll find
is the key to unlock your truest path

to continue breathing is not and option is a must
i know that to continue breathing is not an option is a must
i know, I know, to continue breathing is a must
i know that to continue breathing

guitar solo #1: koko rengifo
guitar solo #2: elias checco

again and again I just keep telling myself
there’s so much more unveil to regain our strength
though to reach further has nothing to do
with brutal force nor pure ambition
just clear your mind and the silence you’ll find
is the key to unlock your truest path

illusions fade away
to realize that the strings attached
to the back of your thoughts
are incapable to constrict your sovereign soul
just clear your mind and the silence you’ll find
is the key to unlock bliss!

to continue breathing is not and option is a must
i know that to continue breathing is not an option is a must
i know, I know, to continue breathing is a must
i know that to continue breathing…. (bis)
