Track Name: Hand Of Fate
Eyes of lapis blue, just like a wet stone and dark complexion
No remorse, no guilt, running they try, hiding‘s no good

Twisted morals, he follows them relentlessly
Without compassion, carrying out what’s supposed to happen
The merciless hand of fate

So penchant for terminating lives
Ruthlessly arranging their demise, no sign of regret
Cold-blooded and beyond sanity
The Merciless, the ruthless hand of fate

Wreaking havoc, the unstoppable
Behind you a swath of destruction

Acting with deliberation, free of spite and hate
But no one should dare to cross paths and expect to be spared
The code he must follow, long live the code

So penchant for terminating lives
Ruthlessly arranging their demise, no sign of regret
Cold-blooded and beyond sanity
The merciless, the ruthless hand of fate

The soulless assassin rises above us all
Half man and half Instrument of god
The expression of an indifferent universe
That’s blind towards the pettiness of grace

But it must be done, it can’t be omitted ,it’s how the river flows.
You are the one who, who has to call it, Friendo
Track Name: Shadow On Your Neck
Forward - always pushing on and on, until the blood runs cold
Never did you ask for this, but temptation has won

The stone started to roll, illusion of control, greed has the upper hand

You wanted to fly, flying without wings
And you wanted to touch the sky, to play with fire

A silver lining in times so dull and bleak
Around every corner death comes crawling
Life is random and full without cruel intend
A callous hangman comes to judge you

Nothing, no action ever will be without consequence, pointless to plea innocent

All was for the loved ones, grasping for every straw
That shadow hunting you, devoid of empathy

The stone started to roll, illusion of control
greed has the upper hand

You wanted to fly, flying without wings
And you wanted to touch the sky, to play with fire
You wanted to much, wanted to much wealth
you wanted to touch the sky, to play with fire

That shadow hunting you, devoid of empathy
Impartial executioner, determined, rigid, cold
Track Name: Old, Bitter & Out Of Touch
The world that I endure, the weight pushes me down on my knees
Once I had the strength

What I knew don't mean a thing no more
When darkness falls, when morning comes
Wait for slumber, we go under

For what it’s worth: I’ll be part of this world
I put my soul at hazard

Old and bitter and out of touch with this world that’s spinning too fast
And I wallow in the past, I knew my place in this world
Bestowing despair upon me

Tell me what to make of it, how on earth would they have dealt with it
The heritage of pride

I am crushed by the changing tides, left alone without a guide
nothings is no more, we go under

Truth is as terrible as death, just so much harder to find

Old and bitter and out of touch with this world that’s spinning too fast
And I wallow in the past, I knew my place in this world
Bestowing despair upon me

I am crushed by the changing tides

Old and bitter and out of touch with this, world that’s spinning too fast
And I wallow in the past, I knew my place in this world
Bestowing despair upon me
Track Name: 1958
What’s the most you ever lost in a coin toss?
The highest stake you ever faced to lose
Confronted with the impossible choice
Swallow dry and brace yourself

Heads or tails, hold your breath and call
Now call, now call

You have mouths to feed and a life to lead
Innocent goals you aspire
Humbleness and guilt, absolution, pain and lust
What you stand to win is everything
The devil will come to the front door alone
Digging into the darkest parts of your soul

It’s a game deciding over life and death
The chance of winning is zero
No matter what you will finally call for
Nothing will ever be the same

Heads or tails, hold your breath and call
Call, now call

You have mouths to feed and a life to lead
Innocent goals you aspire
Humbleness and guilt, absolution, pain and lust
What you stand to win is everything
The devil will come to the front door alone
Digging into the darkest parts of your soul

It’s time to call, you’ve been putting up your whole life

22 years it’s been travelling until
The choice you will make is the ultimate one
Every moment in life is like this
Only now you will stare into the eyes of death

The lord moves indeed in mysterious ways
Nothing of it is vengeance, nor are you chosen by fate
You’re minor In the greater scheme of things

The reaper will return another day
