Christian Schaefer Featured this album on the thirteenth issue of RULE of THREE (bit.ly/RULEofTHREEbc). Guitars ready to break out then silenced and drowned in darkness and sorrow by this enormous bass line before the guitars emerge again echoing from an early goth era. There is an urgency to this track. The vocals add just the right amount of anger and hope to overcome the darkness and the build-up of verse and chorus continues right until the end getting stronger and stronger. Favorite track: No Reason.

Beneath this mask there is a man I'll help you peel it if I can, but if I can't then who could say that I tried very hard? So you assimilate into the black into this grave into this state now into the grave into this grave and it can't be beat because it's listen and repeat and all your friends do fall to their feet they're crumbling crumbling beneath this man's a sacrifice they cover you in paint over your eyes and over your ears there's no helping it like they've done for years and tell you it's good and you can't be won they made sure when you were very young into this grave into this state and it can't be beat because it's listen and repeat and all your friends do fall to their feet they're crumbling crumbling into this grave into this grave

So many feelings pent up in here left alone you most fear can you hear them Adrian? you've such a troubled mind and they follow close six steps behind you can run from them sing another song be kept at bay but not for long you can tell your one love of the railway line and stagger away she dials triple nine one last step one last time until you feel feel alright there he goes rest his head all have gone all are dead he slips away in a lucid state on the night of the 25th reappears on the morning of the 26th they gathered early in the morning hour the bells are ringing now, yes the bells are ringing now and the mind can cower he stands alone beneath terminal tower not wishing to exist so many feelings pent up in here left alone you most fear so many feelings you cannot commandeer left alone you most fear one last step one last time until you feel feel alright there he goes rest his head all have gone all are dead

another one to please the sun thy will be done invading the nation mass conflagration the hammer is plotting collective allotting it's a political rival for the enemy trial or was it a false flag induced by the Comintern strode across the lobby black is burning the body what did the captain say police have barred that way and leaders arriving death doth declaring if they had it their way the world would be ablaze spewing the right words spinning the right way can you see where the smoke is but try not to choke it's not always the same string but it's always the same ring masked by statement of mission freedom for acquisition in the name of tomorrow welcomes this imposition to abolish the sorrow in the act of partition and erase opposition to conform disposition it's not always the same string but it's always the same ring it's not always the same string but it's always the same ring Another one To please the sun Thy will be done

They came into service willingly To heed the call of your enemy Packaged wild fire Useful fool’s desire You fight come the calling But no problem solving Old signs make you wonder Pull it up Put it under They guard a burning house from arson Thwart invades but fuel the inside Hang onto wods so pretty But mark thyself so petty You fight come the calling But no problem solving But terror makes you wonder Pull it up Put it under You fight come the calling But no problem solving Through terror makes you wonder Pull it up Put it under Pull it up Put it under Pull it up Put it under Pull it up Put it under

Passengers 04:11
Colors run like blood through painted eyes Freedom waves and passengers arrive And we stood there in surprise bound stupefied And we stood there in surprise while fate arrived Whittle down my kind They are the devil from behind Creeping dangerously close They sabotage their very own They hold salvation close But grip the knife Come and take this human life Each man stands a victim of his father’s hand Another generation comes to close And every choice that haunts us we oppose -now But only by collective thought we chose And only by collective hell arose And I really hope that this machine will die Rhetoric clouds perception sense waves goodbye We stood there in surprise bound stupefied We stood there in surprise while fate arrived

Zombie Gold 04:45
I will trade humanity, for a family To get ahead, I’ll make my bed Become another man We can still steal the night, Night away And tread heavy upon weary souls, If we want to Take no piece, of gold and take one for the family take no piece of gold and take one for the soul Another dead, I’ll get ahead, When I can And keep close the brother I have For the numbers I have built an empire upon the sand And I climb the ladder of twisted fate When I can take no piece of gold and take one for the family take no piece of gold and take one for the soul We can get by without much to relate to, Relate to We can get by We can get by without much put my hands to My hands to We can get by It’s hard to touch my only concern That’s not enough, compromise my love But I can be mean And I can be tough It’s hard to touch my only concern That’s not enough, compromise my love But I can be mean And I can be tough Take no piece, of gold an take one for your family take no piece of gold and take one for your soul

Painted Eyes 04:50
Counting down Thunder gun and fire stick that bring us death and make us sick and castles on the sea counting down to conquer forth with iron hand but this is not your promise land by god given command counting down
