Lyrics

MAYBE YOU'RE DREAMING

the sweetest reveries
are dreamed in the softest seats
of life's waiting room
where they'll never call for you, no

maybe you're dreaming
and you've never been awake
it is deceiving
so just close your eyes
and breathe your dreams in
like you never did before
maybe your dreaming just begins

the deepest mysteries
are solved when you are asleep
a dream is another life
and you have plenty more to find, oh

maybe you're dreaming
and you've never been awake
it is deceiving
so just close your eyes
and breathe your dreams in
like you never did before
maybe your dreaming just begins

turn the lights out
and close your eyes
meet me in the waking life

maybe you're dreaming
and you've never been awake
maybe your dreaming
so just close your eyes
and breathe your dreams in
like you never did before
maybe your dreaming just begins

maybe you're dreaming
maybe you're dreaming

INFORMAGEDDON

the world as we've known it
is slowly dissolving
our reality's under strain
at first a strange vapour
rose from our computers
then a liquid-like substance emerged

it sprawled across cities
left no space for breathing
the exiles went to the internet
neo-Alexandria
the library of babble
but we were not safe even there

all that you've ever known
all words ever spoken
all thoughts ever thought
and all that you'll never know
will manifest into the physical world
the infinite memory palace will fall

now the substance turns solid
there's no way to fight it
it's crushing us under its weight
the edge of knowledge
cuts the cerebral cortex
we'll leave a diamond planet in the space

all that you've ever known
all words ever spoken
all thoughts ever thought
and all that you'll never know
will turn into crystal
and engulf us all

nothing's unknown
that much is known
the immense amount
of information
the destination
informageddon

Lyrics

CHAOS SHALL REIGN!

we open our eyes
as the dark day dawns
nature spills savage blood
wastes away its pawns
feral children
tending the flames
soon the fire will rise
and chaos shall reign

chaos shall reign
it was here first and will die last
chaos shall reign
glories of the fearsome past

there are forces within
and forces beneath
the surface seems calm
or so you'd think
seeds of destruction
the ruins have no names
black kiss of evilization
chaos shall reign

chaos shall reign
it waits in the deep for you and me
chaos shall reign
bow your head for sacred entropy

chaos shall reign
hail chaos hail

we are descending the stairs
down through the structures of reality
closing in on the original dark void
the sound of the bells from the deep
the abyss from which all complexities evolved

chaos shall reign
societies hanging on a thread
chaos shall reign
chaos springs eternal death
chaos shall reign
chaos shall reign

Violentia (demo version)

This is as goth disco as we get (and it got some nice airplay at a bunch of those). An old one-chord anthem from the Lieksa days that we used to play on our every show (recently we played a scary "a-ferry-to-Sweden" -version of it.)

Lyrics

"this cruel bliss, violent kiss
I'm on my knees that's all she needs
fierce desire like barbed wire
she and I we play at night
malicious games with innocent names
figures of sin carved onto her skin

you poison my nights, you drown my days
and we will never understand
our love is so pure, our love is so cruel
and we will never understand
you and I, cold as the sky, colder than death
you are mine, diabolic divine, so violent

clandestine, hidden from light
this is how we wear our pride
we go all depths, all lenghts tonight
I have a feeling I've lost all my feelings
and it feels so sweet
you silent thirst - violent outburst

You poison my nights, you drown my days
and we will never understand
our love is so pure, our love is so cruel
and we will never understand
you and I, cold as the sky, colder than death
you are mine, diabolic divine, so violent

I'll never let myself go"
