Track Name: Detention
Deviant alienation
Through the subconscious
Socially disturbed
Sexual behaviour
Mentally reduced
To a primitive state

Always trapped in delirium
Imprisoned in my own psychosis
Now detained in isolation
Confined in padded room #9

Alone in my cell
Desperately trying to mutilate myself
Alone with myself
Finding reality through pain
Save me from myself
Strait-jacket to restrain me
The last confession
Echoes still ringing
Drawing on the wall
I see it everywhere
Duality's battle
Between the light and darkness
Ravaging my mind
M spirit used as a battlefield
Surrender
And obey the orders

Chemical mixture
Runs through my veins
Constant psychological
And physical afflictions

Behind the furious personage
Weakened by despair
Despite all sedatives and narcotics
The spiteful thoughts are clear

Waiting for the right moment
To execute the orders
Constant screaming
Deep inside my head

The thirst for evil
Can't be appeased
The thirst for evil
Draining me

Machiavellian plan
In preparation
Analysing
Calculating
Looking for the breach

Bestowing death
In a structured manner
Chain reaction
Synchronized
Agonising
Symphonies
Murderous trail
To access freedom
Track Name: Nightmare
See what I have done
Ear what I've just done
Feel what I have done
Realize what I've done

The bell is ringing, beginning of the end
Every one's in line
Quietly crossing the doors of knowledge
Unknowing such nightmare awaits
Waiting till every one's in place
To ignite the fuel

See what I have done
Ear what I've just done
Feel what I have done
Realize what I've done

Regrouped their whole future
The children of tomorrow
Imprisoned in this infernal trap
Innocent drudge of my despair

Suffer my nightmare

Every citizen rushing to the doors
But the chains are unbreakable
Bare handed, scratching at the walls
Trying to get inside
Fire already well propagated
Can't to nothing except
Scream!!!!!

Welcome to my nightmare
As you can see it's yours too!
My reprisal consisting in burning the school
To reduce your fragile progeny to ashes
I've stayed in the middle of the tragedy to be sanctioned
Track Name: Sentenced
I can’t escape, from my fate
It’s too late, to have faith
Without hate, I await, the last gate

Captured at war, and sentenced to death
Today is the day, they’ll put me to death
Realize that I’ll soon be dead
My hands chained, a bag over my head
As we walk out, I hear all their steps
Feel the rain, my bag is now wet
Gloomy day, for the day I’ll die
Not what I wished, at the time of my last ride

Legs are trembling as I hear the roll of drums, played for me
Heartbeat is speeding up with the shuffle of guns, brought for me
My whole body crumbles under the weight of fear, invades me
Dignity is gone I can’t hold all the tears

Stopping me, pushing me against the wall
Hitting me, beating me until I fall
Lifting me, ordering me to stand
Hating me, now that I will meet the end

Breathing the scent of death
That is now in the air
It’s time for my last prayers
I will meet my death

Legs are trembling as I hear the roll of drums, played for me
Heartbeat is speeding up with the shuffle of guns, brought for me
My whole body crumbles under the weight of fear, invades me
Dignity is gone I can’t hold all the tears

The commander ordering to load
Then he’s asking his soldiers to hold
Heavy silence, I’m hearing their breaths
I am the target of their bullets
Last dawn, eternal dusk
Last duel, already lost
Following seconds seem like an hour
And finally, I’m hearing fire

First bullet is passing through my chest
Tearing apart my flesh
Hear my blood splashing on the wall
Standing for a while before I fall

Across my corpse, the chill of fear
Now the time to weep all my tears
Last bullet is going through my head
Final vision, I am seeing red
Track Name: Tempted
The unbearable weight
Of an unending wait
Trying to find a reason
Losing sight of the question
The answer lies in the death of one
An option that is mine to decide
I will choose for you
Since you are here to die

End it if you will
Never will you stop drifting in pain
Fear being your biggest foe
Loneliness your only friend
Constantly dreaming of coming back
Burning in the trap, the nightmare
End it if you will
Forever be filled with eternal pain

Killing your obsession
Getting rid of yourself
Dying is not an option
While living is no solution
Kill, homicide, murder
A lullaby playing in your mind
The only remedy to this plague is death

I will choose for you
Since you are here to die

End it if you will
Never will you stop drifting in pain
Fear being your biggest foe
Loneliness your only friend
Constantly dreaming of coming back
Burning in the trap, the nightmare
End it if you will
Forever be filled with eternal pain
Eternal pain

Can’t stop it, can’t stop me
Can’t stop it, can’t stop me

Tempted
Track Name: Silence
Tragedy lies ahead
Unavoidable end, follows every new beginning
Hopeless cause, hopeless fate
A redundant death cycle is life
You live your life just to meet me
Why thrive for an upcoming defeat
When your time is up, you will see me
Underneath the lie

When you die is when I start to live
The real nightmare now begins
Begging for your life, yet you’re dying
Crying out to God, as I’m laughing
Took you away like the others… now
You realize there is no Holy Father
I’m waiting, bleed for me

A trip with no return
That is the meaning of existence
Why endure such suffering
To finally end up in the underworld
Sent down to the core
Of the kingdom of lamentations
Captive forever
Condemnation of all souls

Now you’ve died and I started to live
The real nightmare has begun
You begged for your life, yet you died
Still crying out to God,
Took you away like the others…
You’ve realized there is no Holy Father
You’ll be, waiting,
All mortals, with me
Eternally

Tragedy lies ahead
Unavoidable end, follows every new beginning
The ultimate goal of all journey
I’m the time ticking you away, taking you away
I am your reward
I'm your punishment
I’m the solution to your life’s equation
I am death
