They say I'm old-fashioned And live in the past, but sometimes I think progress progresses wrong! Persuade yourself That we live in a modern age, Civilized years of liberty! Modern torture, strain, hypocrisy Are the gifts of improvement. Alas! Look on where the oil flows black. Look away where streets run red. Give me every reason To pursue inner peace. This pure ferocity Hidden by clean conscience. Your remorse is unreal. Sparing neither trouble nor expense, Blinded by greed, who dares ask why. Alas! Give me every reason To pursue inner peace. This pure ferocity Hidden by Clean conscience, it’s leading to bliss. Veneers of griming faces Entice all good intentions And never offer truth. No malice, just negligence! Things have changed And everyone should play the game. Substantial progress made in a modern age, But human kind had remained primitive! The stronger will survive, A principle of nature. No matter how much We may believe in this. Your remorse is unreal!

The only possibility To claim damages of rough ages Is fighting against old principles. Confident distrust. Feel the loathing Everybody loses their minds It’s gonna to be vacant! Determined clout, Erased by cursed ghosts. Society vitiate! Distrust See the entombment, The world keeps turning faster! While life lies, humans regress To be animals Distrust The panoply of Indifference! In innocent days, cunnings were refined! Odd moral proclaimed by mad masterminds! Untrue words were spoken self-reliance’s broken. Phantoms of greed and vanity are united again! See the entombment, The world keeps turning faster! Sculpt your stone!

Obstruct the deceptive hold Of the blinding attenders That will not see the scars They gave to rise Never mind the words they spoke Never mind the oaths they broke Vow it now Come, drain the sea ‘cause in the end These shallow waters bear nothing but silt Stride through the haze It falls into place Each bound once made is set to decay Construct a defensive wall Protect your self-reliance And be aware of the sharp edged weapon That’s out to kill once more Hear these words to be my pyre Finally, I’m going to face the edge Poisoned thoughts just feed my fire I think I’m gonna take the step

The golden halls once strong and proud Are standing on fragile ground. Carrying walls, eroded by hate. Filthy phrases of might and guilt Are destroying what decades built. The vultures eat up the remains Interlude Of a dead world. They will harvest the barren fields Carnivores in a masquerade. A glimpse of hope brought back the light For scorched earth to be revived But old ghosts die hard. Thrown to the wolves the positions are. Dead rhetoric leaves deepest scars. Serpent snakes as dividing lines In a dead world. They will harvest the barren fields Carnivores in a masquerade. Can you see these wastelands dwell? Let’s be the spark to unleash hell! A glimpse of hope brought back the light For scorched earth to be revived But old ghosts die hard. Fake promises in filthy shine. Every border is an enemy line. One day even the blind will see A free spirit knows no boundaries. Go, where the past’s wind blows. Set your mark, take your stand right there. Grab your bat, light your flame, don’t be afraid Of what battles may wait. Ghosts! So come forth! Face up to us now! Brace Yourselves For An endless war. To, co w sposób nieuchronny prowadzi do konfliktu, to pycha i egoizm potężnych państw, zachłanność i zaślepienie bogatych narodów, sztucznie rozpalana nienawiść między narodami i rasami, brak zaufania i brak stabilności w stosunkach międzynarodowych, samowola tych, którzy kierują państwami, hedonizm. Niesprawiedliwość, kłamstwo, zazdrość – smutny łańcuch ludzkich popędów And when the halls come back to life! It’s our turn to redefine What old ghosts have left. One earth, to our feet it lies, No more borders, no more enemy lines. One day even the blind will see, A free spirit knows no boundaries.

Blind preachers are standing on the mountain. They curse all faiths of the world And declare the last day! I’m going to follow the higher authority. Cheek by jowl Traveling through the gloomy minds. Sacred orders, unworthy of discussion. Deicide! Kill the gods that exist. Delusion rise! Tell me why, Tell me why, you confess. Soul is sold to the better ideology. Omnicide! Know the gods that exist. Drifting thoughts about our real being end in punishment. Preach the truth where the perishing people lay, The self-fulfilling prophecy! Delusion rise! Tell me why, Tell me why, you confess. Tell me why, Your norms aren’t immane. Long time ago, There was one man you choose spreading blindness. Step on the real world never again. Infidels live in stuck reality. Dazzlement! Be the gods that exist. Preach the delated truth that is taken From dead generations! Murder in the name of your sacred creeds. Missionize the right entourage! Peasants of the insane Are seeding the essence of sick centuries. The molding crops will spoil our mind! This time, nevermind, The world is full of liars! Set the truth! Please fulfill my mind With conscience and the Will to relinquish. Lost attitudes visit me in my tomb.

What’s to use: The head or the heart? A constant fight between reflection and action. Endlessly I’m struggling to find a way, The dualism in my mind Who brings me the torch of enlightenment? Who will be the one to relieve me? Will time reveal What lies beneath All these doubts, all these weights, that paralyze me? So I bow my head . Lay down these earthly bounds And sink into the realm of fire! Roaming through the blurry paths of the maze. Insanity is taking over. Attached to strings that try to pull me to the place Where the gray reigns. Black wings spread over the soul. Is the virtue of sanity worth to behold This incapacity? What’s to use: The head or the heart? A constant fight between reflection and action. Endlessly I’m struggling to find a way, The dualism in my mind. Will time reveal What lies beneath All these doubts, all these weights, that paralyze me? I am attached to strings that try to pull me to the place Where the gray reigns. Blessed be the man, Blessed be the man of lesser sense! Blessed be his fathomless, venomous, hideous, ravenous mind! And so I bow my head . Lay down these earthly bounds And sink into the realm of fire! Realm of fire!

We throw a stone full of bitterness, A symphony in which would be shown That the visibility of security Is not visible, believe it, fool! Until you realize That safety is what that means. If you forget what freedom is You suddenly will regret it. That’s my endless road! Truly, they choose our destiny. Nothing and no-one can assist us now. Swallow the bitter pill! Today is the day you’re pretend to die, Because your regime is an eternal lie! Will-less you have to feel the pain When you bite into the grates! If problems mutate into ice-cold hate That’s my endless road. Right now you sit in your gloomy cell, Just powerless, vanquished and desperated, A forlorn struggle against an mightful enemy As ever and forever. You’re on the endless road, too. Until we die!

This is the time, time to comply! Lovely homeland, lovely habits, Lovely everyday life, Seriously, it’s time for change! You want the plight. You want the sham. You want the lie. See you on the other side. Where’s the safer life? Trust the men, promise everything under the sun. Start to play the game of life. What’s my sense of life? Let’s go to the shore. Feel the dust on your skin. Let’s enter the ship of rotten planks. Look at the black sails. Look at the black sails. Let’s travel to the horizon Directionless searching for a legit reason to live. Interests quite decrease. No way back, Keep on walking, No help from others, Let us face death. Winds whisper damnation, High seas become boneyards, Feel the salty ransom Flowing into lungs! It doesn’t matter how many knots we reach. Set the course to north-north-west. There’s only one possibility: Edge of the world! We’ll see how long we will fall. Drowning eternally, Sink into oblivion.
