Track Name: Nihil
Lay hope to rest
Our nature reveals the truth
There's nothing left
We're all condemned to be worthless
Look in our eyes
You'll see the glint of death and despair
Just an empty mind
With an empty soul in an empty shell
What a potential
The fabulous power of creation wasted in destruction
What an evolution

Nothing but darkness lies inside

We are foul, we are uless
Nothing less, nothing more

Death and destruction are written in our genes
Track Name: Painkilling rage
Outraged by the mentality of our time which constantly levels down
Outraged by our complete credulity in the church, state and army
Outraged by our total hypocrisy which makes us deny our gredd
Outraged by our systematic cowardice which prevents us from imposing justice

Death and destruction are written in our genes

Can't stand how this world turns anymore
It could fall apart tomorrow I won't give a damn
My pain so constant and sharp I don't hope for a better world
For anyone, in fact I want my pain to be inflicted on you

This rage is my cure for this world
This rage is my cure from self-destruction
This rage kills the pain of being here
Track Name: Children of darkness
In the right light
We have made our past a fraud
Our present is a mess
Our future is a hoax
In the right light
We have made ourselves a curse
Thousands of years to reach this point
Difficult now to go back

We are the meanness
We are the meaninglessness
We are the wandering nothingness
We are the callousness
We are the hopelessness
We are the children of darkness

Death and destruction are written in our genes

Like black holes we swallow life
Like black holes we engulf
Like black holes we swallow life
We engulf and leave nothing behind

What we do leaves no mark on our souls
What we do makes no crack in our minds

What we do leaves no mark on our souls
What we do makes no crack in our minds
What we do brings no tears to our eyes
What we do pulls no strings in our hearts
Track Name: Dystopia
Most of our torments are self inflicted

From centuries and centuries of disasters
Our history is just a catastrophe
With perversion, depravation and atrocity we lead our lives of demotion to a total absurdity
Another era, the same crisis
We remain contradiction consumed by neurosis
Losing the sense of existence
Children's innocence gone
Call it a tragedy if you want, I call it apathy son

Same taints,same stains
Always the same troubles and mistakes
Same old, same old
Same taints,same stains
Always the same troubles and mistakes
Same spiritless process

We're just a bunch of ignorant jerks
Delighting, wallowing in a materialistic dream
Whose only freedom is the illusion of choice
With an indecent fascination for greed
Death and destruction are written in our genes
It's hard to believe in humanity
There is no substitute for the world of today
Behing each word there's a lie
Behing each act a profit

Same taints,same stains
Always the same troubles and mistakes
Same spiritless process

Beyond a doubt
Our end is now
Don't act surprised
We are guilty

No more barriers to cross
All we have in common with the evil, the vicious, the vile
All the mayhem we cause
And our utter indifference toward it
We have now surpassed

Stuck in idleness
We're unable to feel the sickness
Spreading itself
In our consciousness

Our evolution's in stagnation

No more barries to cross
All the mayhem we cause
We have now surpassed

All the mayhem we cause
We have now surpassed
Track Name: Embrace the lie
In these dark days
We're so tame yet insane
So stuck in our ways
So permanent our mistakes
We're perfectly enslaved
So conformably shaped
Entirely depraved
Finding stability in other's misery

And with a shameless pride, we embrace the lie

We're so stupid, obedient to the common lines
On the road of conformity to the temple of vileness

And with a shameless pride, we embrace the lie
And with a dishonest wile, we embrace the lie

The lie of righteousness, death and destruction are written in our genes
The lie of goodness, the lie that everything's all right

Oppression, corruption, wars of religion
All bred by the church, state and army
But with a shameless pride, we embrace the lie
Oh injustice, famine and poverty
But with a shameless pride, we embrace the lie
Homelessness, global warming, violence, pollution,fear and greed
All bred by humanity

So in the end
No knowledge gained from ourselves
No wisdom extracted from existence
Time has come to confess our complete meaninglessness
Our time on earth amounts to nothing
