Track Name: Lone Wolf
A beast within society
Just contempt when they look at me
Hushed words behind my back
Ignorance only breeds attack

Can’t say that I’m surprised
For too long I’ve been disguised
Why does it matter that we're not alike?
This cornered beast will have to strike

I will not falter,
I will not fall
I will fight to rise above it all
A fresh hunt,
A new chase
I’m done hiding my true face

I persevere,
I will not fail
In the end I shall prevail
A lone wolf,
A wild beast
They can’t stop what they’ve unleashed

An outcast with no recourse
A beast left without remorse
On my own I can see the signs
All alone I’ll be just fine

Exiled by misplaced hate
I’m consigned to my fate
Beat down but I will rise
I will never compromise

I will not falter,
I will not fall
I will fight to rise above it all
A fresh hunt,
A new chase
I’m done hiding my true face

I persevere,
I will not fail
In the end I shall prevail
A lone wolf,
A wild beast
They can’t stop what they’ve unleashed
Track Name: Embers
A new night has come
But we know we can't wait
To ignite that old spark
Before it's too late

We just can't hold on
All efforts in vain
Despite our attempts
Just embers remain

When the sun slowly sets
and we walk through these lands
Our flame burns so bright
But we don’t understand

We've done this before
it all feels the same
As the dawn starts to break
Only embers remain

We keep marching on
A battle uphill
To find a new love
Or to seek out new thrills

No matter our drive
Some things can't change
At the end of the night
Just embers remain

When the sun slowly sets
and we walk through these lands
Our flame burns so bright
But we don’t understand

We've done this before
it all feels the same
As the dawn starts to break
Only embers remain
Track Name: Call to Arms
We took the oath to serve our homeland
Through conflict and war, united we stand
Foregoing peace we live by the sword
Not for the fame or petty rewards

Honor defines us, our codes and our pride
Comrades in arms; We fight side by side
No matter the conflict we stay the course
When all words have failed, we meet them with force

We have them in sight;
Brothers and sisters!
It’s our time to fight!

Voices shout out alarms
The shots ringing out
This is our call to arms!

We all heard the call
For honor and country,
Let’s give them our all!

No mercy, no retreat...
Strike them all down
There can be no defeat!

Some pay with blood while others survive
But we made the choice to lay down our lives
Some think us tools; just weapons of war
They can’t understand what we’re fighting for

It’s not for agendas or the leaders we serve
Or out of ego to show off our nerve
We’ll keep on fighting until the last man
For honor, for comrades, the dead, and the damned
Track Name: My Way
Too long I’ve lived this act
All the efforts made to adapt
Forced to work, bow, and scrape
Just to be something I hate

Why should I follow you,
With your narrow point of view?
Why should I live this lie?
All that’s left is to defy

For years I’ve lived with shame
Forced to play all your games
Don't bother with your hollow advice
I'm through with all the sacrifice

Who are you to deem what’s right?
You see the world in black and white.
Why should I be like the rest,
Mindless, blind, and suppressed?

I’m not your puppet or some drone
The path I follow is my own
You expected that I’d obey,
But I always go -my way-

It should come as no surprise
That I failed all of your tries
So quick to say what I lacked
But it was you that held me back

I won’t back down or fall in line
You’re too blind to read the signs
While this way might be long
I’ll keep going just to prove you wrong

Who are you to deem what’s right?
You see the world in black and white.
Why should I be like the rest,
Mindless, blind, and suppressed?

I’m not your puppet or some drone
The path I follow is my own
You expected that I’d obey,
But I always go -my way-
Track Name: Gone
I close my eyes and pretend you’re here
Recalling those fonder years
To see your face, look in your eyes
To know its not just a disguise

I never knew, why did you leave?
Was it you? Or was it me?
All this time I can’t let go
I can't forget, You're all I know

Still you're gone and I'm here
Left alone with all my doubts and fears
And I wait in the dark
While the world around me falls apart

Regret, tears at me
Back then I was far too blind to see
All that time
You were the one who made me feel alive

How I long for one more chance
To try again and relive our past
I cant move on from all this strife
I gave it time to live my life

Time after time I heard only lies
Too much deceit behind their eyes
No one was right, no one was true
They can’t compare; I just want you.

Still you're gone and I'm here
Left alone with all my doubts and fears
And I wait in the dark
While the world around me falls apart

Regret, tears at me
Back then I was far too blind to see
All that time
You were the one who made me feel alive
Track Name: Eisenherz
Du schenkst mir das Leben
Um mich dann zu verlassen.
Soll ich Dich dafür
Nun lieben oder hassen?

Du treibst mich in die Sünde
Um mir dann zu vergeben.
Sag mir, welchen Namen
Soll ich Dir geben?

Ich brenne in dem Feuer Deiner Eitelkeit
Gefangen auf dem Weg in die Unendlichkeit!

Siehst Du das Blut
An meiner Hand?
Hast Du das Leid
In mir erkannt?

Siehst Du den Schmerz
In meinem Blick?

Warum stößt Du mich zurück?!

Du bringst mich um mit Deinem Eisenherz!
Du bringst mich um mit Deinem Eisenherz!

Eine Welt (eine welt)
Ohne Dich (ohne dich)
Ist eine Welt aus Hass und Schmerz.
Du bringst mich um mit Deinem Eisenherz!

Du hast mir Deinen Namen
In die Seele gebrannt -
Mich ohne Erbarmen
Aus Deinem Reich verbannt.

Dein Wille geschehe!
So steht es geschrieben.
Du weißt ich vergehe
Daran Dich zu lieben!

Für mich aus dem Dunkel
Zurück in das Licht
Bevor mein Herz in tausend Teile bricht.

Für mich aus dem Dunkel
Zurück in das Licht
Bevor mein Herz in tausend Teile bricht.

Du bringst mich um mit Deinem Eisenherz!
Du bringst mich um mit Deinem Eisenherz!

Eine Welt (eine welt)
Ohne Dich (ohne dich)
Ist eine Welt aus Hass und Schmerz.
Du bringst mich um mit Deinem Eisenherz!

Hörst Du mein Herz?
Hörst Du es nicht?
Es ist das Herz das zerbricht
Wenn man von ihm spricht!

Hörst Du mein Herz?
Hörst Du es nicht?
Es ist das Herz das zerbricht
Wenn man von ihm spricht!

Hörst Du mein Herz?
Hörst Du mein Herz?
Hörst Du mein Herz?

Du bringst mich um mit Deinem Eisenherz!
Du bringst mich um mit Deinem Eisenherz!

Eine Welt (eine welt)
Ohne Dich (ohne dich)
Ist eine Welt aus Hass und Schmerz.
Du bringst mich um mit Deinem Eisenherz!
Track Name: Reject Mankind
Systems ready, networks online
Reality becomes redefined
We’re beyond both life and death
Existence beyond the final breath

Flesh is weak, the body frail
Obsolete and designed to fail
We offer you an escape
Just accept our embrace

Rise to eternal skies;
A new world, virtualized
Free from all human decline
Where mind and machine are intertwined

Shed your frail humanity
Transcend mortality
Leave this age behind
Embrace tech and reject mankind

Access granted, failsafes offline
Networks running through your mind
Endlessly expandable,
Perfected and mechanical

We offer immortality
The answer to humanity
Now it's your time to choose
What do you have to lose?

Rise to eternal skies;
A new world, virtualized
Free from all human decline
Where mind and machine are intertwined

Shed your frail humanity
Transcend mortality
Leave this age behind
Embrace tech and reject mankind

Now It's time to ascend
The age of flesh is at its end
No more suffering and no more hate
We control our fate

Gaze upon this endless expanse
Designed and shaped by virtual hands
We become digital saints
With no limits
and no constraints

Rise to eternal skies;
A new world, virtualized
Free from all human decline
Where mind and machine are intertwined

Shed your frail humanity
Transcend mortality
Leave this age behind
Embrace tech and reject mankind
