Track Name: My Insanity
Fifteen years locked away in darkness
Narcotized, anesthetized, deafened from the silence
Four white walls, setting of this horror
I killed two men just to see the abyss of my sanity

“Lights out!” Walls are closing in!

You better make me forget your name
Or don´t you know what I am?
Free me from you!
Someday I´ll get out of this place
But will not forget your face
Lock up your door, you´re the first one in line!
Witness me in my insanity!

“You´re trapped in here forever!“
Cries a voice behind my face
Wasted days in this mental maze
Sanity lies far behind
And again I hear them talking right behind my back:
Adjust the medication, increase sedative

“Lights out!” Walls are closing in!

You better make me forget your name
Or don´t you know what I am?
Free me from you!
Someday I´ll get out of this place
But will not forget your face
Lock up your door, you´re the first one in line!
Witness me in my insanity!

Trapped in this nightmare but still I can´t sleep
Trapped in my own my mind with the secrets I have to keep

Solo Markus
Solo Simon

Frantic / Phobic / Frantic and neurotic
Frantic / Psychotic / Tell me, Am I brainsick?

I finally forget my name but at least I´m still insane
Too many years, too many pills
This empty shell thrills for a Kill
Lock up your door you´re the first one in line!
Witness me in my insanity!
Track Name: Pioneer Of Time
They try to define your time
With numbers ,glass and gear
But tell me, what do they fear?
They feel the urge to control
Everything that you do
We are the Panthers, trapped inside a cage

Lies / Lies / Lies
Wake up! Don´t believe their lies!
Eyes / Eyes / eyes
See the hunger flashes in our eyes
Pride / Pride / Pride
There must be a world outside
Choke upon their twisted lies
Tonight the Panther dies

They took all our time
Can’t stop me from taking back what is mine
I am the pioneer of time

Yes you and me are chained up
And now our air gets thin
With every single grain of sand!
But this sense of rotation
Will become obsolete
The panther masticates his old and rusty cage

Lies / Lies / Lies
Wake up! Don´t believe their lies!
Eyes / Eyes / eyes
See the hunger flashes in our eyes
Pride / Pride / Pride
There must be a world outside
Choke upon their twisted lies

They took all our time
Can’t stop me from taking back what is mine
I am the pioneer of time

I saw a world outside
But still these chains won´t break
I saw the other side
But this world was a bigger cage

I saw a world outside
But still these chains won´t break
I saw the other side
But in the end you can´t escape

Tick Tock
Your Time is up
Tick Tock
Slaves of the Clock
Tick Tock Tick Tock
Track Name: Astoria
Astoria
It´s for the world to see
Together
Living but ain´t loving
Astoria
In chains but somehow free
Forever
On fire but ain´t burning

The doubt burns deep, when my mind starts to seek
A better half for me, a silent denial
Between the lines, truth lies concealed
But my eyes are dazed by fear

Astoria
It´s for the world to see
Together
You´re drowning while I’m smiling
Astoria
In chains but somehow free
Forever
I’m living but you`re dying

A breach of trust and now the die is cast,
Whether I´m right or wrong, I´m my own God
Time will tell if I´ll regret my loss
Or if you will in the end adorn my cross

And so ten years have gone by
Time seems to fade away
You found what you thought was in me
Somebody save us from making the same mistakes
Thick Blood runs down my hands, Astoria you´re free
Now you´re free

Taste the blood, now you´re free
Taste the blood, now you´re free

Solo Simon

Die, Die, Die Astoria

Die, Die, Die Astoria

Die, Die, Die Astoria

Die, Die, Die Astoria

Somebody save us!
Track Name: Devil's Dance
Since I was born the people used to call me defaced
But I swore to myself, I will wipe out this vicious disgrace
So I summoned the devil and said: “You shall have my soul,
But make me the king of all mirrors, I demand this throne”

What you get/ Is what you see / Come close to me
Now I´ll take your eyes / And you´ll realize / Where true beauty lies

I saw the devil dance

I touched my face and I felt: The lord kept his word
But when I opened my eyes I saw a never ending dark
After all what is beauty worth, when you can´t please yourself?
I was alone in the dark until something touched my hand
May I have this dance?

What you get/ Is what you see / Come close to me
Now that I took your eyes / I hope you realized / Where true beauty lies

I saw the devil dance

Dance, Dance, Dance, Dance / I´m a blinded king!
Dance, Dance, Dance, Dance / Do you like to put your foot in?

Solo Simon

Solo Markus

What you get / Is what you see / Come close to me
Now that I took your eyes / I hope you realized / Where true beauty lies

What you got / You can not see / come close to me
Go live in peace / You handsome king / Forever in a trance

I saw the devil dance
Track Name: Death & Legacy
With every step you take
On the path to understand society
You can hear the crack of bones
Of those who lie beneath
Society as we know it
Evolves just like a snake
It´s peeling of the old skin
The skin becomes a feast

Death and legacy

Beneath the ground the truth lies
Exposed for those who understand
Human life never meant to last

Death and legacy

This Church is build on the bodies of the nonbelievers
This Bank is build on the bones of the poor
This government is build on the skulls of those who fought the system
What if I take a look down and someone stares back at me?

Death and legacy / Pillars of hypocrisy / Death and legacy
(The) Souls of those beneath us hunting me

And as you breath
The snake slithers forth
Ready to devour all the obsolete values
You can fallow her from nation to nation
You can witness total indoctrination
The evolution never ends

Death and legacy

This Church is build on the bodies of the nonbelievers
This Bank is build on the bones of the poor
This government is build on the skulls of those who fought the system
What if I take a look down and someone stares back at me?

With every step you take
On the path to understand society
You can hear the crack of bones
Of those who lie beneath

Solo Markus

Death and legacy / Pillars of hypocrisy / Death and legacy
(The) Souls of those beneath us hunting
Death and legacy / Die! / Pillars of hypocrisy / Die! / Death and legacy / Die!
(The) Souls of those beneath us hunting me
Track Name: Till Death Do Us Part
Hold on, hold on

If I would die today I would say,
Goodbye to those who paved my way
Don´t forget that you own a part of my heart

You know who you are

Till Death do us part
