At the dawn of creation An ancient spring opened up And its water flowed into the world Two rivers formed Embracing the world Asunder but one Uniting all spheres But some men's heart Were full of discord Distrust and malevolence With force they tore appart What once was as one Now the two streams were foes Opposing each one Hostility forced them in two Each one a nemesis Never to cohere One is now fire The other one is ice A struggle to obey Destruction is ensured Of mankind and the world Everything is now in two Opposites in everything Two rivers fought Dividing all spheres Destruction is ensured Destruction of mankind and the world

I was born to oppose them all To fight what's bad, that is my goal I was raised to slay evil To send it back, to make it shrivel I'm on the run to bring them down To take that evil seed's crown I'm the forces of the light Adjusting what's to be right I'm the one forcing black to white Proclaiming the defeat of evil's might All who are threatened By fright and dread Will be protected From the mad In a world without me Where just hate will be Malevolence and insanity Without any empathy I will just wither Will never be But who am I to decide The balance of might And who to stand by side I'm the forces of the light Adjusting what's to be right I'm the one forcing black to white Proclaiming the defeat of evil's might All who are threatened By fright and dread Will be protected From the mad

Pain 04:02
Breathe me into your cold body Full of fearsome restless thoughts Feel me become a part of your soul In your mind I carve me deep Waiting for my chance to strike Fear and hate are my hot bed Defiling your artless mind Pain is my seed Fright is my manure Tears are my breed With might I try to lure I long it I want it I need it Or else you will decay Pain is my seed Fright is my manure Tears are my breed With might I try to lure You long it You want it You need it Or else you will decay Compensation for all your pain Suffering of helpless souls This is my gloating satisfaction

Atwain 05:01
"Evil" Between gorges so deep And mountains so high Hear him weep As he is wandering by My jewel my Grace Brilliance of my life I hold you tight Forever gone deprived My scion my heir Reason to sustain Slaughtered Total abjection Cruel force, dark energy Feasting inside of me Festering soul Sweating palms Thinking of killing them Seeking so long What is good What is bad Am i righteous Or just gone mad Last descendant Long forgotten How can this be right Shattered mind Values smashed Broken man With eyes so bruised My hate up so high Desperately I cry Here they are Trapped in front of me They shall suffer Torture is upon them Bind their hands Break their bones Rip their guts By this thoughts I feel remorse Is this me Is this right Is it up to me To decide Fear and hate Vicious thoughts Blind to remorse I want their blood Their pain Shattered mind Values smashed Broken man With eyes so bruised "Good" How can I ever be sure To know what is right Justice or Insanity The margin is blured My soul a gorge endlessly deep In there trapped by hate A desperate weep Am I allowed to decide What fate should fulfill No orders no right Just a long way As I run into the light "Evil" Cruel force dark energy Feasting inside of me Festering soul Sweating palms Thinking of Killing them Cruel force Yet remorse What will justice be

Voices 05:51
Deep from within my inner self A cry rises up The sound of a soul breaking Of innocence, crumbling Is it a voice of reason Or false morality The dark passenger inside of me Struggling clouded mind How can this ever be right What is it that drives your kind What that makes me believe In my fight Murder for murder A child for a child You're dying for a reason You live without a light My vengeance will be righteous My answer will be heard A savage in my mind Struggling clouded mind How can this ever be right What is it that drives your kind What that makes me believe In my fight This is a bitter revenge This could be a sweet retreat Isn't there a part in me Leading me into the light This is my bitter revenge Leading me into my fight Struggling clouded mind How can this ever be right What is it that drives your kind What that makes me believe In my fight

Wardrums 05:15
A warrior standing tall A soldier full of pride Marching to devastating fate My victims so weak This inferior kind Now it is time to smash them all This is just right Can it ever be wrong To bring justice To this sinful world This is my fate Wardrums playing my song This inbreed will suffer A vendetta only blood can end This inbreed will suffer This war is my personal one Two factions struggling led by me Creator of armies Creation of one A promise to the dead Never to retreat A promise to the dead Makes me breathe Is this right Or just so wrong Is it justice For what i long This is my fate Wardrums playing my song Makes me suffer Their blood will spill Wardrums playing my song This inbreed will suffer On my Soul The wardrum blasts My hatred casts

Torn Men 06:44
"Evil" Into the rising night I cry A tearing struggle of destiny Within a torn man Torn corpses all around "Good" Through deserted fields I walked And thorns of righteous sin Dug deep into my soul And tugged on my skin Into the rising night I cry Endless rivers I followed Never losing the scent Tracking them down like The worthless brute they are There is a wall in my mind Locking out all my grace Yet there are cracks And I have to force down This uneasy moral I clench my fist as hard As i only can Around my weapons forged Of madness and pain I point my spear of hate Against this creatures To put an end on this Complete silence in my head "Evil" I slam into the cabin And stare down at this Pack of filthy rats With eyes of cold steel A tearing struggle of destiny My world comes down to this Now there is only us Soon it will just be me Will my heart beat again Fantasies of madness crawl Through my mind as I found them In a lonesome place Deep into eery woods "Good" Have I really come so far And have I gained so little The storm inside of me Made me grow Or made me shrivel I clench my fist as hard As I only can Around my weapons forged Of madness and pain I point my spear of hate Against this creatures To put an end on this Complete silence in my head "Evil" I force my hands unto Their throats and my sword Into their veins Yet there is no ease of pain Within a torn man I rise that beast in my chest Loosens it's bite into my soul Heavy breathing constant shivering As blood runs down on my hands Torn corpses around "Good" Into the rising night I cry My pain - my agony - my unease A tearing struggle of destiny Can this vendetta ever be right Within a torn man's soul Is this really what I long for Torn corpses all around It is done... "Evil" Into the rising night I cry A tearing struggle of destiny Within a torn man Torn corpses around "Good" I clench my fist as hard As I only can Around my weapons forged Of madness and pain I point my spear of hate Against this creatures To put an end on this Complete silence in my head

Epilogue 05:15
A journey has come to an end A thousand ones have yet to start One has to make his stand The right choice is the art No good - No right Harmful action everywhere This is neither dark Nor is it light And neither of us Is up to decide No black No white Justice is never given Even if brought by ourselves There will always be A differnet perception No Bad So wrong A decision up to us This is neither dark Nor is it light And neither of us Is up to decide No black No white
