Track Name: Parasitus
Under the pulse of corrosion
Derailed by faith and devotion
We've sinned enough to doom ourselves
The future hope and illusion
Tortured by constant confusion
We are creatures meant to stray

Blinded by a projection of our life
Fooling our realities and minds.
Conform to society and you'll be raised up to the sky
Prone to stress, anxiety, they'll pay obedience with a prize
Come undone
Rest here in peaceful
Burned alive
There's no tomorrow.

The parasite is awake is alive
He is nurturing on emotions to thrive
Ignorance and violence to feed the blinded human kind
Slave yourself to silence to feed the monster in denial

Obey and March
Shut up muted
Pray your god
Hope for tomorrow

The universe in motion consumes our souls inside
Infinite strength and notion is far too bright
This spiritual disruption makes us living machines
The physical corruption defeats the light

Obey and march
Track Name: Ozymandias
An endless breeze stings on my face
I'm waiting, I'm holding on

The turns of time are passing by me
Nothing can touch me.

I am the king of kings

Look at me and despair

I am the king of kings

Nothing besides remains

As life is passing by
Nothing moves me

I slowly fade away
I'm breathless, I'm shattered

All that surrounds me now now has lost the way

All that is left here is just sand and rain

What I was made of now is disappearing

What I've become has been destroyed by time

Which yet survive
Stamped on these lifeless things
The hand that mocked them
And the heart that fed
And on the pedestal these words appear:

I am the king of kings

Look at me and despair

I am the king of kings

Nothing besides remains

And I'll be gone when tomorrow comes

Stranded on the sand, take me away

Maybe I will meet you on the other side

And I'll be done when tomorrow comes

But nobody will care about the fate

The King is dead
