Track Name: The Unholy War
The Unholy War

World is a will to power
And nothing else
The unholy war for cheap pretense

I hide my face
From this disgrace
The price of fame
Is mine to taste

So as we look upon the sky
We fail to see
That heaven is a lie

You can't reap what you sow
On this treacherous soil
As you struggle for breath
In the serpent's coil

Every single day
Oceans wash away
People with no need
To indulge their greed
Every fortune spent
In this tortured land
Keeps you wanting more
Stronger than before

The unholy war

We climb in vain
Up the food chain
But fail to see that heaven
Is not to blame

Last chorus:

Every single day
Oceans wash away
People with no use
For a dead man's shoes
Every fortune spent
In this tortured land
Keeps you wanting more
Stronger than before

The unholy war
Track Name: My Babylon
My Babylon

Traversing
This burning landscape
I miss the pouring rain
And all the years I wasted
Trying to be me again

There stands among the mist
A place of many fortunes
Oasis of my sins
The shelter of my virtues

I'm guided by the star
That shines upon your towers
Concealed within your walls
The secrets of our fathers

Rise from dust and blood
A child of eternal war
You're blessed by God
The one to witness your fall

When the earth beneath the sky
Did not even bear a name
Were the gods just like men
With their desire for fame?

The city of thousands
On its way to demise
Doomed from the start
But I beg you to

Rise from dust and blood
A child of eternal war
You're blessed by God
The one to witness your fall

I've waited too long
Oh, my Babylon!
Every man dies alone
In this Babylon of my own
Track Name: Birth Machine
Birth Machine

My hell is crowded
With angels of regret
My heaven's overburdened
With a swarm of living dead

It's funny how
This animal
Became the ultimate predator
When it only feeds upon its own flesh

The seed has grown
The birth machine goes on and on!

Immune to pestilence
And spared by war

The one who got the party started
Did you ever think
That it would end this way?
That your gift would be abused
By those made of clay

Worn out
By hate
This world keeps turning faster
Let's get it straight
We're heading for disaster
All empty words they speak
Drown in noise
But only for so long
The birth machine goes on!

In the age of sin
We are slaves to this machine
But now the only thing we are told
Enjoy your perfect life in a perfect world

Worn out
By hate
This world keeps turning faster
Let's get it straight
We're heading for disaster
All empty words they speak
Drown in noise
But only for so long
The birth machine goes on and on!

It's funny how
This animal
Became the ultimate predator
It's funny how
This animal
Became the ultimate predator
