Track Name: Try And Fail
My mind burns every single turn
I lose a path that don’t stray
Built my home on unstable ground
And buried my coffin in clay

You try and fail and you try again
You expect the outcome will change
You’re forever cold under the warm sun
As you chase the shadows of pain

Crawling skin and burning blood
Lightless void fills your soul
You’re born and bred within a cage
To a life that you don’t control

And you might think it a pleasure
To waste your mind away
But that’s the price you pay
When you play with the pack
You throw away the key to your chains
Track Name: The Wanderer
The wolf or the wanderer
I don’t remember which
But I was lost under spell of dirty tricks
I’ve seen the moon at night
In desert and in snow
I’ve heard the tales been told
And tasted wine of gold

But through all the joy, the misery and woe
I’ve known the reason why
Oh, I remember, in those greedy gleering eyes
Staring at me with the devil by its side

(The devil was looking at me!)

All of the pleasure
And the pain that we deny
For the mortal soul will sin
He said; My darling it is here upon the road
Among the ghosts who whisper so
I’ll give you answers you never know
Track Name: You Knew I Was a Snake
I was born a rattlesnake
Silver streams from a fiery lake
So cold, overgrown
My kingdom of stick and stone

Shapeless shadows in my mind
Rings of smoke tell the doom of our kind
And it’s so inevitable
When you can’t tell weak from strong

I’ve seen the lidless eye
Way atop of a mountain high
The earth don’t turn and the sun don’t shine
Forever night is growing nigh

Bow fool I’m the serpent king
Desert throne is a rootless thing
Cold kiss of the shaman has strangled spring
As we all lie dead the crows will sing
See the creature’s strange faces
Hungry pyramid, dead child embrace
See them burn like the red sun
See love at the end of a gun

You know I’m leaving
Gotta pack my bags and go away
But don’t you cry, oh don’t worry
It was never meant that I should stay

It gets better with time I’ve heard them say
As all love and passion withers away
Your soul turns stone, your body to clay
When life ain’t worth living, alive you can stay
So to the end now I must wait
You ripped my wings, I slit your throat

You knew I was a snake
Track Name: My Little Darling
You twist and you turn as the whip strike upon your back
Oh my darling will tear you from your track
You tend to your tortured and your lonely hungry soul
For my darling will leave you in the cold

Blackness mother impaler
We gave the child a name
And now you come to claim her
Oh brother in vain
You’re first in line for the mass grave
Is your mind unemployed
You’re down in the dust with the depraved
(You don’t return when you love the void)

I’ve heard they’re saying she’s evil but I know
That she got a way with spellbinding tortured crows
The unseen sun cast no shadow
But your mind will fall before
My little darling in due time

Blackness mother impaler
We gave the child a name
And now you come to claim her
Oh brother in vain
You’re first in line for the mass grave
Is your mind unemployed
You’re down in the dust with the depraved
(You don’t return when you love the void)

She’s got a soul of a wanderer
And she’s got a smile of a thief
But only in death little darling
Will you ever find relief

Blackness mother impaler
Return me the kiss of death
For a moment with my little baby
Is a life worth living yet
Track Name: Lucifer's Child
In the darkening waylaid night
With my cradle she took her flight
Into the wilderness picking her fight
Can you understand my young mother’s plight

Amid the treetops where no one could see
She sang a song and a prayer for me
Laid down my cradle to flow down the stream
Into cold nature and into her dreams

Away from the comforts that burn at the stake
She gave birth to a venom snake
Oh don’t you cry no more
On her great pyre she smiled
For she carried lucifer’s child

I spit like a snake and I howl at the moon
Before twenty-one winters, and twenty-two soon
My mother’s revenge has sharpened my claws
For I only abide by nature’s laws
And I will descend on the preacher men’s nest
To take my revenge in a feast of their flesh

Away from the comforts that burn at the stake
She gave birth to a venom snake
Oh don’t you cry no more
On her great pyre she smiled
For she carried lucifer’s child

And if they think in death they’d find rest
My mother awaits them a torturer’s guest
So don’t you go down, no
Your bended knees wouldn’t help

Away from the comforts that burn at the stake
She gave birth to a venom snake
Oh don’t you cry no more
On her great pyre she smiled
For she carried lucifer’s child
Track Name: Guillotine
How many nights have I wondered
How many times have I cried
Trying my best to forget you
Running right out of my mind

You said that I complete you
Did you know then it was a lie
Thought you could change
What love should estrange
When you couldn’t then you said goodbye

And that look in your eye
Can you fake such indifference
Or did you even try
Through a wall of malevolence

Did you have ulterior motives
For turning so rapidly cold
Did you deem it merciful as if
In silence I wouldn’t know

Or did you think it was easy
Going right on with your life
Leave me behind by the scaffold
In the shadow of the falling knife

And the look in your eye
Can you fake such indifference
Or did you even try
Through a wall of malevolence

To make it fly by
Quick as the guillotine
Right upon my smile
Where my face used to hide
Track Name: The Crows Ain't Far Behind
As the dark times turn you suffer
Some thing will never change
Why plan for the best
When you expect the worst
All hope is out of range

And the sun won’t give you no light
I guess you know the trouble’s gonna come
When your heart host the night
I guess you know the race has run
When demon strikes at every turn
A smell of death is on your mind

Oh oh, you gotta burn!

Your inner flame couldn’t burn dry grass
But is gonna scorch your mind
And when there’s no warm lights on your path
The crows ain’t far behind

And the sun won’t give you no light
I guess you know the trouble’s gonna come
When your heart host the night
I guess you know the race has run
When demon strikes at every turn
A smell of death is on your mind

And the crows ain’t far behind
Track Name: Forsaken
How do you think that you can win
When your soul is forsaken and soiled in sin
Demonic has already cut through your face
So now we both join the unholy doom race

Death come crying in your dreams
And the vile will join to laugh at your screams
Your burned sorrow have lived too long
Tonight, forever in darkness and love

Oh listen to her cries for help
Her fortune’s up
She’ll join the caravan to lady land
Will someone take her by the hand

Rise above the hazy doom
Or stay alone and find place for your tomb
The clock is ticking towards your end
And you know who is around the bend

But don’t you cry for me like I was lost
‘Cause I was born a wretched dog
Walking in dust and cold
Searching your body for filthy bones

How did you think that you could win
When your soul was forsaken and soiled in sin
Demonic had already cut through your face
So now we both joined the unholy doom race

Death came crying in your dreams
And the vile joined to laugh at your screams
Your burned sorrow had lived too long
Tonight, forever in darkness and love

Oh listen to her cries for help
Her fortune’s up
She’ll join the caravan to lady land
Will someone take her by the hand
Track Name: Witches of the Woods
I hear they whisper around my head
And they will curse me until I’m dead
Awaken by the power

I never understood
And soon they will hunt me down
The witches of the woods

I will not survive

On the tall black horses they ride
With sharpened knifes

Evil is closing my eyes

It’s time to die
Oh, the end is nigh

Along with the vile I shout
On this endless trail
Afraid of the loneliness

I can’t prevail

The children of the shadows
Cast no sin

Screaming as loud as they could
With the witches of the woods
They will not survive

On the tall black horses they ride
With sharpened knifes

Evil is closing their eyes

It’s time to die
Their blood runs dry!
