1.
It won't be your messiah, it won't be your god It won't be the prophet whose words you blindly trust It won't be the rupture or divine wrath It won't be any other fabricated lie It's all ending before your eyes No salvation, prayer's futile Mankind's oldest trick, shifting the blame Then praying for rescue when it all goes sideways The world's ruin is in your hands It's not some punishment from above Time has come now to pay the bill Don't look upwards, it's your own shit Thoughts and prayers only do so much As the reach of your made-up gods
2.
Be careful what you wish You might just get it on your face Justice ought to be ruthless So give it some good thought Before you summon me tonight I don't play well with others Always to the rescue No innocents will die Bad guys are finished Burned by my laser sight I just need one damn minute To put on my anti-hero tights Nothing sugarcoated You get no comfort hugs And no condescending talks Call me whatever you want As long as you understand You're opening a can of worms Be careful what you wish
3.
Nail 02:08
Yeah I'm a selfish bastard human being You're right to call me heartless too I know I'm not the best of companies But you're not someone I have to answer to Every day, one more nail on my coffin I look upon the day I die and I'm still laughing I bide my time till time is right Yeah vengeance's built inside my nature I get high when you're all down Your pain is there to feed my pleasure So just fix one more nail on my coffin And one fine day you find out life's all for nothing
4.
Count Me Out 04:35
Just take a look inside my mind See if I've got there any hope left Just take a look inside my world A constant free fall with no net It's the dead end I see In a damned world that reeks That makes me want to grasp On all that's left of me Hey, don't wait up I guess this is a train I'm missing Yeah, just count me out Being saved is not what I've been seeking Just try to find a reason for me And I will turn it back to vain Just take my hand and feel the burning The blood is boiling in my veins It is the uselessness In everything you preach That would make me a fool If I hoped or believed
5.
Wretched souls wash out to your shores Fleeing from a hell of their own Weighing their life or death Against your inherited wealth Ignorantly, moronicly Spitting bile and putrid ash Sick egotism mistaken for love Including your own among the elite Blind to what you'll finally reap Ignorantly, moronicly Channeling hatred
6.
Hate Speech 02:37
Spare me your endless whining About your lost privileges You're calling oppression Your threatened entitlement Your cries for so-called liberation Are no call for revolution It is only hate speech Twisted sense of supremacy In wars you see a solution While you keep on invoking The democracy you shit on Cherishing your basic rights At the same time burning witches "Apolitical" genocide Among your deepest wishes Noone needs your hate speech Fuck you and your hate speech
7.
Spray all around with wet grass Hang the drawing upon your wall Bake and eat the holy pie So then everything is known Humbly kiss the wooden statue Bow to the severed rotten hand Take a sip of tainted wine And a small piece of the bread Hellfire to the heathens Damnation upon their kin We are the chosen people Free from all idols and sin Wear the eye around your neck Always carry your lucky charm Watch for all those with a look That can leave you sick and damned Imaginary demons Exorcized with stones and sticks Slaves of superstition But otherwise free from sin
8.
Ungatz 02:51
It was destined to hit you Just around the corner Nothing you can do Just obey the order It comes from inside you Sabotaging its own Till it kills its own host It grows and grows and grows and grows No mysterious ways in which it works You are no center in any world It doesn't happen for a reason It doesn't have to make sense The only sense you will be making Is in your own grave's dirt Maybe karma caught up With your sly practices Maybe heaven is missing A few more angels It's all going according To the great masterplan For we're all but pawns Thy will be done
9.
Beyond the village lights Each night be sure to gripe Tight in your palm the ring Blackened in May's fire Oh hear the tinker's pot With the names of dirt's gods Wherein's summoned the fever That breathes with the frost The hands shall remain black The stone bridge workers The warning, they didn't obey "You shall not sit to rest Under the fig tree's cursed shade" They woke up into the night Right fingers paralyzed Like they had been worked Inside the Devil's own fire Through the small fire Within the bridge's base A huge hand moves and pounds In the innards of the earth Your salvation lies With the wandering black man Who shepherds his huge florins And makes the Old Ones shake The florins, they are nurtured By creatures behind mirrors That left the hand behind On to the graves they're due for
