1. Axis Mundi

Ipso Facto, Axis Mundi!

Sandtime bled, die for the truth
Drop of plague in the vein of the crowd
One will be enough to suffocate
The misery this world has turned into

Ergo a cabeça sim mas apenas para sentir
a lâmina fria que me beija a nuca

English translation:
Yes I raise my head but only to feel
the cold blade that kisses my nape

Ipso Facto, Axis Mundi!

Poison dart shot in the poor
Seed of hope spilled by the sick
Another lie will be enough to illuminate
The misery the race has turned into

Ergo a cabeça sim mas apenas para sentir
a lâmina fria que me beija a nuca

Ipso Facto, Axis Mundi!
Equinox in every word
Falling leaves in every soul
In every word in every soul
We’re lost in a dying world

2. Lickanthrope

Wolves gleam in human eyes
Stealing tears from divine
Break of hope, break of necks, hand on leash
Can’t go wrong, lickanthrope!

Heart of a wolf breaking the bitter skin
Under the chaos, under the moon
The pack is gathering

Little red, riding hood
Godspeed, prostitute!
Under the stars, under Venus
The flock keeps giving

The night swallows the day
Her lips find a way
We don’t want to be saved
Lickanthrope

Veil of a queen tying the hands of a king
In the name of the species, under the silks
Let the games begin!

Little red, riding hood
Godspeed your destitute
Under the stars, under Venus
The clock is ticking

Lunar skin, white as pearl
Collar wine, reap the thine
Ride the bitch to ecstasy
Can’t go wrong, lickanthrope!

3. Versus

I am thinking vultures ripping the flesh,
Smashing the bone
I am thinking hailstones shot to the head,
Making the giant fall
I am hearing pipes, the pipes of Pan,
I know it’s wrong
I am hearing lies, the lies of man:
They’re written in the stars above!

So crawl back to your hole!
Wait for thy kingdom come
So crawl back to your hole!
Tonight no one will come

The fire can’t tame us
We’re not making peace
And haters can’t break us
We’re growing fierce

In the end of times, no prophecy just you and me
In the end of times, the thrill of the flight
I am here to take your life

I am thinking snake oil rubbed in the skin
Enter the poison!
I am thinking arrows stuck in the heart
All men are mortal
I am biting the apple, the rotten core
The worm wants more
I am healing the blind, the book of the dead
Be prepared to meet your end!

4. Alpha Noir

Let the good men crush
What they love
It makes them feel alive
Let the fair men build them crosses
And crucify

So let the wise men write
Our death threats, in Bible paper
Let their message be sent
Throughout the thunder
Throughout the underworld
Throughout the Alpha

Alpha Noir, we want a new world!
Alpha Noir, our truth, our code!

Let the good men search
Revolve their graves
For a shade of paradise
Let the lion’s flesh perfume the widow
And sanctify!

Let the weak man have
The final word
Order from Chaos
Let their secret be known
Throughout the underworld
Throughout the thunder
Throughout the Alpha

Alpha Noir, we want a new world!
Alpha Noir, our truth, our code!

5. Em Nome Do Medo

Em nome do medo, do medo sem fim
Na ira dos deuses, caímos enfim
A vida cruel, tormenta assim,
O céu que nos esmaga n’ausência de ti
Em nome do medo, do medo sem fim

Sou sangue de teu sangue
Sou luz que se expande
Sou medo de teu medo
Senhor do teu tempo
Em nome do medo

Negro alfabeto do chão te levanta
Tua confianca jamais se aquebranta
Comemos os frutos de tao triste jardim
Faltou-nos o tempo, chegamos ao fim
Em nome do medo

Sou sangue de teu sangue
Sou luz que se expande
Sou medo de teu medo
Senhor do teu tempo
Em nome do medo

Mas nem o vento por terra me deita
E nem o fogo por dentro me quiema

Sou sangue de teu sangue
Sou luz que se expande
Sou medo de teu medo
Senhor do teu tempo
Em nome do medo.

English translation

In the name of fear, endless fear
Into gods’ wrath, we finally fall
Oh cruel life, such torment…
Skies that crush us, in your absence
In the name of fear, endless fear

I am blood of your blood
I am expanding light
I am fear of your fear
Lord of your time
In the name of fear

Dark alphabet arise from the ground
Your confidance shall never falter
We eat the fruits of such sad gardens…
Our time is short, we’ve reached the end
In the name of fear

I am blood of your blood
I am expanding light
I am fear of your fear
Lord of your time
In the name of fear

But not even the wind will bring me down
nor fire will burn me out.

I am blood of your blood
I am expanding light
I am fear of your fear
Lord of your time
In the name of fear

6. Opera Carne

Red meat is the inner shrine of our immortal soul
The heart breaking out illusions of innocent blood
Desire is pain
Eating away the worm in the brain

Our flesh burns in mysterious ways

Gray matter is the unholy clay of our address on Earth
Frontiers are coming down between body and the soul
Abrasive, insane
Putting away the spark in the brain

Our flesh works in mysterious ways
Our flesh burns in mysterious ways.

7. Love Is Blasphemy

In your thoughts

“Behold the bridegroom cometh
In the middle of the night”
Behold the rats who follow him
Why do they want our destruction?

Do broken men still sail in your blade
Are your bravest still afraid
Now it’s the womb that chases the seed
Now it’s the time of the need
Of hunger and revolt
Inverting our thoughts

Forever hold
Forever sworn
Forever mine

It’s the time to know, it’s the time to see!
Love is blasphemy

In your thoughts

Behold the gloom bride coming
Riding the tail of the star
Beware the scum who follows her
Now it’s the time of the kill.

8. Grandstand

So many stars above our heads and yet we choose to starve
So many stones out there to turn and yet we choose to ignore
Thousands I wish to corrupt, their sons I seek to mislead
Damned forever be your dreams, I reject my destiny

To see what hides behind the mask
To live, to lust and make it last
To take the grandstand on the top of the world
And scream the truth: what does not kill, hurts us

So many ways out there to thread and yet we choose to turn back
So many choices we could have made and yet we choose to kneel down
Thousands I wish to corrupt, their sons I seek to mislead
Damned forever be your dreams, I reject my destiny

To see what hides behind the mask
To live, to lust and make it last
To take the grandstand on the top of the world
And scream the truth: what does not kill, hurts us.

9. Sine Missione

Instrumental


1. White Omega

It’s when we fall down on our knees to suck the mouth of each other
It’s when life’s so precious that every moment hurts
That I fear for myself

From the trees our bodies, swaying
Once we were the lovers, engaging below them
Indifferent…

Now it’s the world that went on
There was no time to be strong
Now it’s the world that went on
Indifferent to us

It’s when you invade me again
In our judgment day we won’t be together
Our time has come
Again I fear for myself

From the trees our bodies, swaying
Once we were the lovers, engaging below them
Indifferent…

Now it’s the world that went on
There was no time to be strong
Now it’s the world that went on
Indifferent to us

2. White Skies

White skies roar with battle cries
Haters meet, lovers die

And I wait for your touch now
My flesh in yours, and yours in mine
Once again I am raising my blade
This time we face each other

By these hands – untouched
By these lips – unspoken
Every heart – a jewel
Every heart – a stronghold

Skies come down!
White skies roar with battle cries
Haters meet, lovers die

And I wait for your love now
We came so close, too close to turn back
Once again, I have your life in my hands
It’s brothers against brothers

By these hands – untouched
By these lips – unspoken
Every heart – a jewel
Every heart – a stronghold

Skies come down!
White skies roar with battle cries
Haters meet, lovers die

3. Fireseason

Where, where is everyone gone tonight?
Looking behind to seek for forgiveness
Try, you can never stop to try
Life doesn’t wait and time runs too tight sometimes

Fire… Season
Fire… Too much is forbidden
Desire… To enter the season
Of fire… Too much is forbidden
Taken away

Where, where is everyone gone to hide?
Taking it back as if you’re not real
Cry, you can never stop to cry
Nothing was left, not a shred of life tonight

Fire… Season
Fire… Too much is forbidden
Desire… To enter the season
Of fire… Too much is forbidden
Taken away in the night

4. New Tears Eve

Our seals were so easily broken
Our hopes were so silently crushed
Still our hearts can’t be broken
Still our hearts will hold

‘Cause once we were kings
Made friends with the beast
And thus we shall fall
And thus we shall see
What the future brings
New Tears Eve

Green light, deep inside the night
Tonight we’re hateful

Our words take the shape of our secrets
Silent vows, violently crushed
Still our minds to be open, still our heads hang low

‘Cause once we were kings
Made friends with the beast
And thus we shall fall
And thus we shall see
What the future brings
New Tears Eve

Green light, deep inside the night
Tonight we’re hateful

5. Herodisiac

And then the wine as if his blood
And then the cracks as if was cruelty
By her lips his words are swallowed
Her tongue a blizzard
No reflection in the mirror, no resistance!

The skin gave the lamb away
The stars are hiding in the shade
Sweat running down the riverbed
Tonight I sleep in the chamber of the queen

And then the blood as if was wine
Your sacred lips will never dry now that you’re mine
Your father’s apple stuck in my throat
No reflection in the mirror, no salvation!

The skin gave the lamb away
The stars are hiding in the shade
Sweat running down the riverbed
Tonight I sleep in the chamber of the queen

6. Incantatrix

Seasons came and seasons went
Rocked to sleep through the sounds of hate
Your prince was born without a face
Something too bright, fades away
I’ve lost your trace

Seasons came and seasons went
Marched to battle in thy name
Your throne is now an empty place
We fill your heart with naked flames

When you’re afraid, just call my name
I’ll keep you safe until it’s day again

Can you feel the heartbeat, through the sea and the mist
In the wake of the witch, through the shadows and hate
I’ve lost your grace, I’ve lost your trace

People die and times they end
Watch you past far away
The throne sits now in empty lands
We crushed your heart with naked hands

7. Sacrificial

Like a stain of guilt never washed away
The world made flesh on the seventh day
And we engage in carnal trade
Knowing things will never be the same
My tongue is so dry… her mouth is divine

A sacrifice it had to be done
Upon the ashes of the kingdom come
There is no reward for making things right
There is no glory in sparing one’s life

Like the first of sins there is no one to blame
The earth grew wet on the seventh day
And we sit down for a feast of hate
We eat each other in a twist of fate
My tongue is so dry… Her mouth is divine

A sacrifice it had to be done
Upon the ashes of the kingdom come
There is no reward for making things right
There is no glory in sparing one’s life

Blood-knives drawing to entertain the pain
The world is watching, demanding

8. A Greater Darkness

A greater darkness for all it’s worth
A friend so young who’s life was cut
We drink the rain to clear our throats
We drink the poison to make it go

The little mercies above all things
No final act. no final scene
A friend for life and in death too
Forever strong, forever hold, inside our soul

So raise your hands above the waters
We are the thieves in giant shoulders
Se raise your hands, our hearts sink lower
To watch you drown inside the monster

The day now ends and all within
A greater darkness covers everything
Is there no end for such a pain
Is there no hope, no other life no way to know?

So raise your hands above the waters
We are the thieves in giant shoulders
Se raise your hands, our hearts sink lower
To watch you drown inside the monster

So raise your hands inside the monster
