Track Name: My digital hell
I turn it on and surf the web
I’m stuck to screen around the clock
Resource locators in my mind
Take me away in just one stroke

I pass the gate to the invented universe
My virtual replica’s created from the source

I’m up all night inside this world
It’s just become a part of me
This world has come into my life
And it ain’t gonna leave me be

I’m back inside this transcendental universe
My virtual life restarts again and takes its course

Why I go on and on
So mad and so alone?
There’s no escape from this hell
This is my digital hell

Tonight I’m gonna surf alone
Until I turn to a virtual clone

Beyond the time I fly away with no remorse
And disappear in the invented universe

Why I go on and on
So mad and so alone?
There’s no escape from this hell
This is my digital hell
There’s no way out of this hell
This is my digital hell

[Guitar solo]

Why I go on and on
So mad and so alone?
There’s no escape from this hell
This is my digital hell
There’s no way out of this hell
This is my digital hell
Track Name: Circus of fools
Don’t tell me all I gotta see is what you show me
Don’t try to make me just a puppet dancing to your tunes
Don’t pull my nose that I should hear just what you tell me
Oh I don’t wanna be a clown abiding by your rules

I don’t wanna be a clown in your circus of fools, No, no, no
I am not under your thumb and I will not obey your rules

Oh can’t you see your empire goes out of control, it gets out of control
Oh don’t you hear the roar of its crumbling walls, see its crumbling walls
It’s all gonna fall

Don’t tell the stories that we got a right to justice
Oh don’t you think I’m just a noodle who believes your lies
Don’t paint the pictures of prosperity and happiness
I’m not too blind to see the truth between the lines

I ain’t gonna be a clown in this circus of fools, No, no, no
I am not under your thumb and I will not abide by your rules

Oh can’t you see your empire goes out of control, it gets out of control
Oh don’t you hear the roar of its crumbling walls, see its crumbling walls
It’s all gonna fall

[Guitar solo]

I am not under your thumb I can bend all your rules, yeah, yeah, yeah
Gotta kick the Clown-in-chief off the circus of fools…

Oh can’t you see your empire goes out of control, it gets out of control
Oh don’t you hear the roar of its crumbling walls, see its crumbling walls
It’s all gonna fall
Track Name: The eyes of a werewolf
In the dead of night
Hidden from the light
Scared to fall asleep
But I’m in too deep
Trapped inside a dream
Of the world unseen
By the blood red moon
A nightmare’s coming soon

As soon as clock hits midnight
I shiver and burn inside
And under the cover of night
You’ll see my darkest side
So freeze and hold your breath
It’s far beyond your depth
Just look right into my eyes
Uncover my disguise

In the eye of night
In the pale moonlight
All alone again
Darkness is my friend
Under deadly spell
Pulling me to hell
Still I’m in-between
Hear my silent scream

As soon as clock hits midnight
I shiver and burn inside
And under the cover of night
You’ll see my darkest side
So freeze and hold your breath
It’s far beyond your depth
Just look right into my eyes
Uncover my disguise

[Narration & Instrumental break]

Oh no!
Please leave me be!
Don’t let me transform again
No! No! No!

As soon as clock hits midnight
I shiver and burn inside
And under the cover of night
You’ll see my darkest side
So freeze and hold your breath
It’s far beyond your depth
Just look right into my eyes
Uncover my disguise
Track Name: Princess of darkness
Colder than ice you are
And darker than black by far
Snake’s smile on a pretty face
No blood in your withered veins

Princess of darkness
My painful desire, my distant star…
I gotta know who you are
Beautiful Goddess
Or evil messiah… just who you are?
I wanna know who you are

Through foggy plains you walk
A strange ancient tongue you talk
The eyes of a cat you’ve got
You make my skin crawl, oh

Princess of darkness
My painful desire, my distant star…
I gotta know who you are
Beautiful Goddess
Or evil messiah… just who you are?
I gotta know who you are

[guitar solo]

Poisoned by your charm
I’m playing my part
I’ll never tear apart
These chains ‘round my heart

Princess of darkness
My painful desire, my distant star…
I gotta know who you are
Beautiful Goddess
Or evil messiah… just who you are?
I gotta know who you are

Princess of darkness
My painful desire, my distant star…
I gotta know who you are
Beautiful Goddess
Or evil messiah… just who you are?
Please let me know who you are
Track Name: The killing ground
Through desert sands
Making our way
‘Cross wasted lands
We’re moving away
Burnt by the sun
We’ve got to run
Die or survive –
A million to one

Sent to attack
To make us die
Spawned by the black
They fall from the sky
No prayer’s been read
No tear’s been shed
Just in a blink
A million men dead

See… Earth is turning to hell
And the world won’t be well
Running right out of time
Judgment bell starts to chime

No sunny days
No morning dew
Traces of life
Are fading from view
Smoke fills the air
Death comes around
Earth turns to be
Our killing ground

See… Earth is turning to hell
(The Earth is turning to hell)
And the world won’t be well
(The world will never be well)
Running right out of time
(We’re running right out of time)
Judgment bell starts to chime

[guitar solo]

We never thought
We never felt
We’d ever face
The demons from Kuiper belt

Oh… Earth is turning to hell
(The Earth is turning to hell)
And the world won’t be well
(The world will never be well)
Running right out of time
(Running right out of time)
Judgment bell starts…
Track Name: Just for a while
How I wish you were with me this morning to share the beauty of the sun
With the wind of fate you’re gone forever – I know this cannot be undone
But my bleeding heart would beat again oh if I could see your smile
If God made us face to face just for a while

If you gave me just a little smile the clouds of grief would move aside
You could take away the ghastly pain that has been burning me inside
And I’d see the rainbow of salvation painted ‘cross the eastern sky
If God made us face to face just for a while

Yes, I’d see the rainbow of salvation painted ‘cross the eastern sky
If God made us heart to heart just for a while

[Instrumental break]

Still the scars remain, I feel them burning, and the darkness pulls me down
Everything I’ve ever loved and cherished now it’s buried in the ground
And before my heart stops beating I will take a look up to the sky
Hoping that I’ll see you there just for a while

And before my heart stops beating I will take a look up to the sky
Hoping that I’ll see you there just for a while… just for a while… just for a while… just for a while…
Track Name: A sign
Have you ever felt that you are being watched?
But you know there’s no one else inside the room
Being alone at night, you think – “oh, it’s a bit too much”
When you sense a stranger’s gaze in the light of the moon

Ooh, someone’s been watching you… yeah

Have you ever thought you’re going insane
Being afraid to take a look in the mirror at night?
You check to see the door is locked over and over again
And all night long you don’t even turn off the light

It’s not just a dream
It’s a nightmare come true
It must be a sign the underworld’s sending you
Neither reason nor rhyme
Chills run down your spine
Getting mesmerized you just follow the sign… Follow the sign…

Have you ever trembled in your bones
When you hear the sound of knocking on the door?
Sneaking downstairs on your tiptoe
Scared to take a step and pass the corridor

It’s not just a dream
It’s a nightmare come true
It must be a sign the underworld’s sending you
Neither reason nor rhyme
Chills run down your spine
Getting mesmerized you just follow the sign… Follow the sign…

(Whisper) We’ve been watching you… follow the sign… Ah…

[Guitar solo]

Have you ever felt it’s blowing your top
When the phone begins to ring in the eye of the night?
You are wide awake you want to take a drop
Scared to answer the call you start to search for the light

It’s not just a dream
It’s a nightmare come true
It must be a sign the underworld’s sending you
Neither reason nor rhyme
Chills run down your spine
Getting mesmerized you just follow the sign…
Follow the sign… follow the sign… follow the sign… the sign… Oh
Track Name: The ghost of Van Der Decken
Have you ever heard the tales of a phantom…
A phantom ship they call a portent of doom
A ghostly vessel all aglow in the darkness
Drifting slowly by the light of the moon?

She’s fated to wander the ocean
She’s destined to glide ‘cross the sea

People thought it was the worst of the omens
To see her moving at full sails with no gale
They assumed she was in league with the Devil
They believed it was a true ancient tale

She’s fated to wander the ocean
She’s destined to glide ‘cross the sea

Glowin’ with dim ghostly light
She drifts in the night
Glowin’ with dim ghostly light
Still drifts in the night

Still she glides across the sea – under the never-ending curse
Still she haunts the merchant ships – to sink them down with no remorse

[Guitar solo]

She’s believed to be a sign of misfortune
Those who face her never see land again
No one knows is there the end of the story
Of her voyage never reaching the end

She’s fated to wander the ocean
She’s destined to glide ‘cross the sea

Glowin’ with dim ghostly light
She drifts in the night
Glowin’ with dim ghostly light
Still drifts in the night
Track Name: Tight thong angel
I saw you standing
In the shimmering light
Skin tight hottie
Dressed to kill in the night
A pretty face
From an adult magazine
Sweet and wild
You looked just like a living dream
A high heels princess
A tight thong angel you were
A thief of heart
You made me yearning for more, more, more!
So I imagined
We could have a big time
Didn’t know how
But I was sure you’d be mine

Angel and demon in your eyes
They make my heart pumping faster
You are my hell and paradise
You’re my good luck and disaster
My hell and paradise… Ooh, babe!

Some geezer told me
You’re a tough nut to crack
“Forget” – he said
“She’ll be your pain in the neck”
“She’ll chew you up then spit you out” –
He said
“Her love’s a trouble that you have never had”
“She’s just a hooker – don’t you cry for the moon”
“Stop pretending ‘cause it’s all gloom and doom”
“Shut up” – I cried
“Get lost, stop wasting my time”
Didn’t know why
Still I was sure you’d be mine

Angel and demon in your eyes
They make my heart pumping faster
You are my hell and paradise
You’re my good luck and disaster

[Guitar solo]

Angel and demon in your eyes
They make my heart pumping faster
You are my hell and paradise
You’re my good luck and disaster

Angel and demon in your eyes
They make my heart pumping faster
You are my hell and paradise
You’re my good luck and disaster

Ooh, babe! Ooh, baby! My hell and paradise…
Ooh, babe! Ooh, baby! My hell and paradise…
Ooh, babe! Ooh, baby! My hell and paradise…
Track Name: Redemption
You’ve been a victim of lies
A pawn in a cruel device
Broken and mentally blind
Bound to illusions and…

Still you don’t see any light at the end of the tunnel
And in the bottomless pit of lies you drown

The men in grey suits run the show
And you’re bound to go with the flow
Questions are filling your mind
Getting no answers but…

Deep in your heart there’s a hope that redemption will come
And the empire of lies will be torn down

Dare, open your heart to eternal light
Light up the fire in the darkest night
Break down the chains and let justice be done
Keep your head up and redemption will come

The seeds of chaos are sown
The breed of corruption has grown
Money and guns rule the world
Sinking in mire

It’s all up to you – make your choice would you dare to defy the web of fear
Oh, time’s getting short – the end is near

Dare, open your heart to eternal light
Light up the fire in the darkest night
Break down the chains and let justice be done
Keep your head up and redemption will come

[Guitar solo]

Dare, open your heart to eternal light
Light up the fire in the darkest night
Break down the chains and let justice be done
Keep your head up and redemption will come
Track Name: Insomnia
It’s time to sleep and you turn off the light
But you feel so scared of facing the night
Are you sure that tomorrow will come?

You toss and turn, you’re counting the sheep
You’re getting mad ‘cause you ain’t falling asleep
And you see that it’s getting too deep

Hear the endless screams in your head
Watch the ghosts of the dead at your bed
See it creeping right into the room…

Insomnia, insomnia, insomnia
Insomnia, insomnia, insomnia

The more you try, the more you get stuck
You’re tired to hear the endless tick-tock
And you feel you’ve been losing your mind

You turn and twist, it’s a nightmare come true
The full red moon is laughing at you
And your sanity hangs by a thread

Hear the whispering voice in the hall
Watch the shadows dance on the wall
See it crawling right into your bed…

Insomnia, insomnia, insomnia
Insomnia, insomnia, insomnia

[Narration]
The last seven nights…
And the longest days of despair in-between…
They have been like seven years of never-ending nightmare
It has been eating you alive, your mind’s in turmoil
It chills you to the bone in the dead of the night
It stirs your brain with troubles unsolved
It makes you recall all the sins you have done…
Is the more yet to come?
How long can you stand?
Time is not your friend
You gotta find a way to set your mind free

[Guitar solo]

Hear it come and knock at your door
See its shadow cast on the floor
Now it’s living under your skin…

Insomnia, insomnia, insomnia
Insomnia, insomnia, insomnia
Track Name: Silicone Prima Donna
You worship that girl as a goddess
She lives in your dreams – she’s your guiding light
She makes you insane and ecstatic
Like psycho you’re waiting to see her tonight

She looks so classy
She’s dynamite tonight
Lip-syncing songs for you
And everything looks right

She turns your world inside out
She’s your ideal – there’s no doubt
Strained smile on red silicone lips
Tight stockings wrapped ‘round her hips… yeah, yeah, yeah!

A Beemer, a yacht, lots of money
She’s got it…
An army of fans, a perfect body
And still she’s been climbing the pop music charts

She’s so exciting
You just can’t get a grip
She’s nailing songs for you
Until it’s time to trip

She turns your world inside out
She’s your ideal – there’s no doubt
Strained smile on red silicone lips
Tight stockings wrapped ‘round her hips… yeah!

[Guitar solo]

She’s so electric
You fall into a trance
She puts you on cloud nine
Just watch her booty dance

She turns your world inside out
She’s your ideal – there’s no doubt
Strained smile on red silicone lips
Tight stockings wrapped ‘round her hips… yeah, baby! Ha-ha!

She turns your world inside out
She’s your ideal – there’s no doubt
Strained smile on red silicone lips
Tight stockings wrapped ‘round her hips
Track Name: Let all be gone
All my life’s been a theater of fears
I’ve been living in filth, I have tasted the sin
I have prayed to a wrong god for years
Now I know how deep is the shit I’ve been in

And my inner self’s screaming in pain
And the hatred is burning like fire again

All my life’s been a theater of madness
Now I want to get out of this loony bin
I have looked for wrong truth in the blackness
No more life in a shell, no more keeping within

And I feel I’m being chased by the demons
In the night I can hear them calling to me

I’m on the edge of darkness
I’m heading straight for hell
I guess it’s worth a lifetime
I wanna leave this shell

Leave me alone… Let it be done…
Leave me alone… Let all be gone…
Track Name: Kill the king of war
2015, but still we keep playing bad game
The hunger for self-destruction we cannot seem to tame

Summon the demons of chaos, death, and pain
Into the abyss of war we fall again

Violence and rage make him strong, he’s ascending the throne
Icy fingers of death pull the strings, and the king’s
Ruling the Earth
Casting the shadow of hell he will always prevail
And we’re destined to kneel and obey and it’s senseless to pray –
Save us!

Angels in the sky
Mourn us as we die

2030, we’re right in the heart of the war
Ambitions and domination – that’s what we’ve been fighting for

Forces of darkness grow stronger day by day
Out of the abyss of war there ain’t no way

Hatred and greed make us weak, so we move to the brink
And the king’s at the helm of the world, still he’s bold
He’s not gonna fall
Cruel intentions and schemes he invents, but it seems
If we’d try to redeem all the sins we have made we could win –
Let us…

Kill the king of war
And live forevermore

Kill the king! Kill the king! …

[Guitar solo]

Kill the king of war
And live forevermore
Track Name: Robosapien
I’m neither a thing nor just a toy
I’m gonna give you lotsa joy
Don’t act the fool just turn me on
Don’t be afraid just push – come on!
I’ll be your pet; I’ll be your friend
I’ll be your lover at the end
So hack me, crack me one more time
Don’t hesitate – get off the dime!

I will show you my world and make you forget your troubles and pain
Play with me and don’t you let them convince you you’re living your life just in vain

I’m made of magic cyber skin
I can be red, or blue, or green
And if I bother you too much
You turn me off with just one touch
I’ll be your slave; I’ll be your fool
When it’s so hard to keep your cool
Abuse me, use me one more time
You know – I’ll never cross the line

I will show you my world and make you forget your troubles and pain
Play with me and don’t you let them convince you you’re living your life just in vain

Robosapien… Robosapien… Robosapien… Robosapien…

[Guitar solo]

I show emotions on my face
Through polymorphic interface
Synthetic blood in plastic veins
Anthropomorphic jelly brains
I’ll be your master and your god
And you will give me all you got
One day you feel you’ve lost your wife
And I’m the center of your life

I will show you my world and make you forget your troubles and pain
Play with me and don’t you let them convince you you’re living your life just in vain
I will show you my world and make you forget your troubles and pain
Play with me and don’t you let them convince you you’re living your life just in vain

Robosapien… Robosapien… Robosapien… Robosapien…
Track Name: Down where I belong
My life was right
And that ain’t no lie
A while ago
Oh I didn’t know
I never knew
This would happen to me
I’ve always thought
It’s just a nightmare…

Thrown in an ocean of fear
In a vortex of hell spinning on and on
This is the cross I must bear
And this is the last place where I belong

Don’t you see the tears?
Don’t you hear me screaming?
No one seems to feel
The pain that I am feeling
Don’t you hear my screams?
Don’t you see me bleeding?
No one feels for me
No one cares …

My thoughts were good
Seemed I understood
Where was the line
Who’s wicked, who’s divine
I never thought
It’d be my final road
The road that’s full
Of good intentions …

There were forks in the road of my life
And I chose not to live on the edge of a knife
My intentions were good, so my thoughts were as well
Tell me why am I supposed to be burning in hell?

Thrown in an ocean of fear
In a vortex of hell spinning on and on
This is the cross I must bear
And this is the last place where I belong

Don’t you see the tears?
Don’t you hear me screaming?
No one seems to feel
The pain that I am feeling
Don’t you hear my screams?
Don’t you see me bleeding?
No one feels for me
No one cares …

Born to march with the legions of hell
In the shelter of chaos, destruction and pain
In despair and oblivion I’ll dwell
In a hideous place caught in diabolic spell

Holy words can’t reach here
No archangels sing here
Gruesome demons dwell here
There’s no way out of here
Holy words can’t reach here
No archangels sing here
Gruesome demons dwell here
No way out of this place

[Guitar solo]

A while ago
Oh I didn’t know
I never knew
This would happen…
