1. Until We Are No More (Breathe)

Breathe in, Breathe out,
You reached the top of the chain
Inhale
Exhale
You made it ’til the end of days

Every man’s a sinner
Every man’s a liar
Life’s a slow procession into the fire

Carry the weight or crush under it
Carry the weight or crush

Every man’s a sinner in the name of the father
History’s repeating into the fire

Carry the weight or crush under it
Carry the weight or crush

We started wanting to be ourselves until we are no more

Breathe in, Breathe out,
You reached the top of the chain
Inhale
Exhale
You made it ’til the end of days

Every man is a leader
Every man is a martyr
Every man is in trouble caught in your fire

Carry the weight or crush under it
Carry the weight or crush

We started wanting to be ourselves, to live our lives
We went too far perhaps beyond control until we are no more

Breathe in, Breathe out,
You reached the top of the chain
Inhale
Exhale
You made it ’til the end of days

2. Extinct

Watch them

In each other’s arms
At each other’s throats
In the time out of mind
We buried our love
No moon to guide us tonight
No light to see us through

Let’s pray for the waters to come
Let’s pray
I pray, time stops, while you rot
I pray, time stops

Before the lights go out
Before our time is gone
A taste of your lips
Before we go extinct

Without control
The ark took sail
To the far beyond
Through the limits of time
No moon to guide us
Just the star of death
To lead our way

Let’s pray for the waters to come
Let’s pray
I pray, time stops, while you rot
Let’s pray time stops while you rot

Before the lights go out
Before our time is gone
A taste of your lips
Before we go extinct

3. Medusalem

Two white feathers sewn on the angel black
Be mine just for another thousand nights
Or leave me to rot to the gods of the sun
Just for a thousand lives
Two white feathers sewn to the angel’s back

In Medusalem

Drive a needle through the camel’s eye
The heart is a ticking time bomb
Ready to explode
Or leave me to smoke with the assassins tonight
Together we ride
Two white feathers sewn to the angel’s back

To Medusalem

It’s the land of honey
The land of pain
The city falls under its weight
The golden sands were painted red
And we shall free you from your chains

Two white feathers sewn on the angel black
Just open the gates, let there be light!
Or leave me to be with Morgana tonight
To the land of Cain, come together, we’ll ride
Two more feathers sewn to the angel’s back

To Medusalem

It’s the land of honey
The land of pain
The city falls under its weight
The golden sands were painted red
And we shall free you from your chains

To Medusalem

It’s the land of honey
The land of pain
The city falls under its weight
The golden sands were painted red
And we shall free you

It’s the land of honey, the land of pain
The city walls give in to faith
The golden sands were painted red
And we shall free you from your chains

4. Domina

Your veil came down for judgment day
What took to the skies, what took you away?
Tears run fast, and so did blood
But nothing could break through your ice, break through your ice

We’re always close but never there.
What came from the skies to take you away?
Our children grew, left us behind
But no one should pay such a price

Just another day and they’re all the same
In this world of the next
You bring me down and I resurrect
In this world of the next

Just another day and it’s all the same
In this world of the next
You bring me down and I resurrect
In this world of the next

Watched us fall in a silent dive
Watch our love die…

Just another day and they’re all the same
In this world of the next
You bring me down and I resurrect
In this world of the next

Just another day and it’s all the same
In this world of the next
You bring me down and I resurrect
In this world of the next

In this world of the next [4x]

5. The Last Of Us

Let me guide you to where it’s silent
Across the limit of survivor’s guilt
The crowds are waiting,
The sigh was taken
By the burning sun
We’re moving on the straight line into depths unknown

My curse is to love you
Until we see the last of us
No chance of surrender
Nothing but eternity

My curse is to love you
Until we see the last of us
No chance of surrender
Before we fight our destiny

Let me touch you where it’s forbidden
And test the limit of your sanctity
The crowd suspended
They have stripped naked for the lust of god
The fire burns as if there’s no tomorrow, no tomorrow

You know my heart will fail
You know my back will break
And again and again
It won’t hurt just for you to reveal my pain

My curse is to love you
Until we see the last of us
My terms of surrender
Nothing but eternity

My curse is to love you
Until we see the last of us
No chance of surrender
Before we fight our destiny

Black magic, unconditional love
Black magic unconditional
Black magic, unconditional lust
Black magic irresistible

6. Malignia

The quick spider weaving
Keeping the web alive and well
Like the black widow male
Just another victim
To a love so rare

I saw no light in your eyes
I know that others have tried

I thought I was the one!
But you turned me into stone!
And when you look back at people
You turn them into dust

I count the snakes in your hair
Growing stronger with every breath
I will be the one who waits
Picking up the pieces until
You come again

I saw no light in your eyes
I know that others have tried
I heard your tears sold like gold
One more of your lies unfold

I thought I was the one!
But you turned me into stone!
And when you look back at people
You turn them into dust

Malignia

I thought was the one!
Thought was the one
Thought was the one

7. Funeral Bloom

Through the light and the thunder
When it’s night and day
Darkness take my hand now
Take me anywhere

I could take shelter
I could pretend
I could run against it
Wouldn’t stop
Wouldn’t stop the wind

Oh it’s time!
To pick up a rose
From the mouth of the dragon
Oh it’s time!
To bring you down from your tower
Start a chain reaction

Oh it’s time!
Time to lay her down
Ashes to ashes
Oh it’s time! Oh it’s time!
Time to cover the world in Funeral Bloom

Through the age of light
Aquarius
When it’s night and day
Follow the blind man
Through the fire
They always know their way

I could take cover
No use for protection!
I could smash your other cheek
Blood out in the wind

Oh it’s time!
Time to lay her down
Ashes to ashes
Oh it’s time! Oh it’s time!
Time to cover the world in Funeral Bloom

Oh it’s time!
Time to lay her down
Ashes to ashes
Now it’s time! Yeah it’s time!
No other colors but Funeral Bloom

We rise, we fall
Without control
We crash and burn
So damn our souls
I show you no remorse
ERGO SUM PECCATORE

For he was a good man
A supplicant
(And) disaster was his god
Now devoid of earthly lust
I command him to the skies
Where everyone is just
And everything will be fine
Where everyone is just
And everything will be fine

Now it’s time!
Time to lay her down
Ashes to ashes
Oh it’s time!
Time to cover the world in Funeral Bloom

Oh it’s time! Oh it’s time!
Time to lay her down
Ashes to ashes
Now it’s time! Yeah it’s time!
No choice of color but Funeral Bloom

We rise, we fall
Without control
We crash and burn
So damn our souls
I show you no remorse
I’m but a sinner, a liar
A man who lost his course
ERGO SUM PECCATORE

8. A Dying Breed

Can’t you see that the curtain has fallen between us?
And that the statues of leaders
Keep smashing on the burning floor
The sunset is rolling
Behind the mountain’s dying peak
Our life has no meaning, the world forgot about me

We’re dying,
We’re falling
We’re crawling
We’re disappearing
We’re trying
Defining
Our sense of right and wrong
As a dying breed
As a thing from the past
We’re a dying breed

Can’t you see that the magic is over? Has it ever started?
And how the music we listen keeps fading, she’s lost control
The new tribes they gather around the Earth’s dying core
The new ways are wining, no place for me anymore

We’re dying,
We’re falling
We’re crawling
We’re disappearing
We’re trying
Defining
Our place
In the natural order
As a dying breed
Just a dying breed

We’re a dying breed
We’re a thing from the past
Just a dying breed

We’re dying,
We’re falling
We’re crawling
We’re disappearing
We’re trying,
Defining,
Our sense of right and wrong

We’re dying, escaping, still falling,
We’re disappearing
We’re trying, defining,
Our place in the natural order
As a dying breed,
Just a dying breed
We’re a dying breed,
We’re a thing from the past
We’re a dying breed,
Just a dying breed
Just a dying breed!

9. The Future Is Dark

Oh, my son too young to understand that life is dark sometimes
There is just not enough light
And you, you broke me every day, but I fought you back
I think I could die in the next room without you noticing

Where do we go, where do we go from here and where do we go?
Where do we go, where do we go from here, what happened to us?

Gotta breathe in, gotta breathe out
Up on your feet, gotta think twice
The future is dark, the future is vile
Without you there’s no tomorrow

We, we die alone, but we live without
And yes, it hurts me so to realize that death won’t do us
Won’t do us part, but something
Something else might

Where do we go, where do we go from here and where do we go?
Where do we go, where do we go from here, what happened to us?

Gotta breathe in, gotta breathe out
Up on your feet, gotta think twice
The future is dark, the future is vile
Without you there’s no tomorrow

Gotta breathe in, gotta breathe out
Up on your feet, gotta think twice
The future is dark, it’s all that we’ve got
Without you there’s no tomorrow

10. La Baphomette

Regardez
Elle s’agite
La Baphomette
Regardez
Elle s’embête
La Baphomette
Le vol
Le ciel
Un homme
Une femme
Oh, la Baphomette
Le vol
Le ciel
Une bête
Oh, la Baphomette
Regardez
Elle s’ennuie
La Baphomette
Regardez
Elle est belle
