So here I am on my knees again A former search for truth, now turned into a senseless game Each dream has gone, suffering remains Clarity is not what I will gain Fear is the weakness, the key to loneliness I took the same road for far too long It wasn’t meant to be, now the vision has gone In the growing shadow, loosing my identity I just don’t belong in this reality What do we know, where do we go Accepting we’re just loosing the game And I tried, I tried to build Now I linger in the ruins of my own guilt What do we know, where do we go Accepting we’re just loosing the game What do we know, where do we go Self deceiving we numb the pain Fear is the weakness, the key to loneliness Our troubled minds, our inner violence We scream so loud to hear the silence Hear our screams as we face tomorrow Being aware that life is only borrowed Hear our screams as we try to cure Our last endeavour to gain something pure There will be a flame we have to tame New shores will burn and the tides will turn One silver lining to break the darkness Out of nothing we rebuilt the fortress What do we know, where do we go Accepting we’re just loosing the game What do we know, where do we go Self deceiving we numb the pain

Two Words 04:38
Realizing it’s a fact Being stabbed in the back Leave me all alone Friendships demise It’s all built on lies Feel hate to the bone Now that all is said and done Two words unspoken We made our way through thick and thin And never thought this could be broken Shared all our trust Now it turns to rust There’s no apologies Violated confidence Does this make any sense Feeling traumatized Show me ignorance Show me disregard Have a closer look Carved between lines, ignoring the signs Show me unconcern Show me disrespect Have a closer look An F and a U from me to you Now that all is said and done Two words unspoken We made our way through thick and thin And never thought this could be broken Show me ignorance Show me disregard Have a closer look Carved between lines, ignoring the signs Show me unconcern Show me disrespect Have a closer look An F and a U from me to you Now that all is said and done Two words unspoken We made our way through thick and thin And never thought this could be broken

Scars Of War 04:19
Recruited 18 years old Going overseas to save the world Only a one way ticket in sight Get ready to fight Cannon fire lightens the night Trenches become the stage of the fight Brothers falling around and around On a blood soaked ground In the safety of dawn Last prayers are told On the battlefield unbound Combat yells resound Courageous men fall one by one Crippled bodies scatter the ground As senses slowly fade Ring in the end of this crusade The battle is over Blood covers the plain A foxhole is my shelter The smell of death remains Shell splinters hit me tight Scars burn deep from inside As I look down from the sky Mama please don’t morn, please don’t cry The battle is over Blood covers the plain A foxhole is my shelter The smell of death remains Glory in death All I earned are medals on my chest The battle is over Blood covers the plain A foxhole is my shelter The smell of death remains

Angel Eyes 05:58
Just ain’t a guardian angel Nor a messenger at all Came down far from heaven Proclaim the planet downfall In times of nuclear blast and warfare Humanity shall be punished Fulfil the divine purpose Acts of contrition come too late Spread your wings for supremacy Mankind is staring into angel eyes Earth is drowned under firestorms Oceans submerge the land Air pollution is filling our lungs Nothing against it, it‘s in our hands This is the end, bring us pain While flying on those wings of destruction This is the end, bring us death While flying on those wings of damnation Spread your wings for supremacy Mankind is staring into angel eyes The world’s not meant to break free Doomed forever and all times This is the end, bring us pain This is the end, bring us death This is the end, bring us chaos While flying on those wings of extinction Spread your wings for supremacy Mankind is staring into angel eyes The world’s not meant to break free Doomed forever and all times Did not consider warning signs Waking up to ash and dust Now that all lies in ruins Everything turns to rust This is the total collapse Devastation for our race Did not foresee a new age rising Wearing masks of ignorance

I Am Reality 03:26
Hello my friend, now listen closely Your doubts will end, never be solely I'm the only truth, and you know it You should not choose, not a bit I can help you, knowing all your desires I can take too all your charges I’m the only thing, that you’ll ever need I am the true king. Together we will succeed Close your eyes and you will see Life is just a stupid dream Close your ears and you will hear That only I am reality No need to think, I'll do it for you Here have a drink, there's only my view My goals are clear, but do not concern you People are all here, so you should go to Close your eyes and you will see Life is just a stupid dream Close your ears and you will hear That only I am reality Buy me and I will own you Submit to me and I will use you Feel me and I will numb you Desert me and I will destroy you I am your God Close your eyes and you will see Life is just a stupid dream Close your ears and you will hear That only I am reality

The Mission 05:05
Your trail’s been chosen Bleak about the future Knowing how your life is gonna be The next damn years Make yourself comfortable It’s the only freedom left Afraid to give in, afraid to let go An eternal dilemma Afraid to give in, afraid to let go Death becomes the easiest way out So sick and tired of your narrow mind Remote controlled and empty like space Like a robot for their greater good Take every taste you can Don’t stand still, move on In a crowd you move among The mission lasts eternally Give up the try to flee Serve your purpose acting like a muppet Forget your proletarial Hopes and fears, live to waste another day But don’t let them see you sweat Afraid to give in, afraid to let go See the end of all days Don’t stand still, move on In a crowd you move among The mission lasts eternally Give up the try to flee The mirror of conformity Poisons ambitious souls No chance to break the circle But chosen to lose control Don’t stand still, move on In a crowd you move among The mission lasts eternally Give up the try to flee The mirror of conformity Poisons ambitious souls No chance to break the circle But chosen to lose control

Dying Alive 04:47
Our lives are put on display And as lights fade We are losing our way This venomous drug Designed to tear us apart And built to destroy the whole community Although we have the tools To reconcile the world These rats are craving for recognition Fuelled by avarice for information Suffocated by voracity Isolated by the ones we called beloved Designed to tear us astray We’re dying alive We are lost in this timeline Overfed with too much information Our lives run secretly Waiting for the next discovery Our lives run in apathy Waiting for the next command Fuelled by avarice for information Suffocated by voracity Isolated by the ones we called beloved Designed to tear us astray We’re dying alive Our lives run secretly Waiting for the next discovery Our lives run in apathy Waiting for the next command Fuelled by avarice for information Suffocated by voracity Isolated by the ones we called beloved Designed to tear us astray We’re dying alive

Waking up in a lake of sweat Memories eat me up Haunted by the past Where is fate? Where is destiny? Wounded by my teardrop bullets They crash around me into ground Harmed by my teardrop bullets They smash around me without a sound The hurt in my eyes consumes every thought Struggling to escape the dreams I dread More then a normal range of sadness Leave me be cluttering the void inside Wounded by my teardrop bullets They crash around me into ground Harmed by my teardrop bullets They smash around me without a sound Walking day by day through a cloud of fog Do I cage myself if I fall from grace Wounded by my teardrop bullets They crash around me into ground Harmed by my teardrop bullets They smash around me without a sound

Supernova 05:17
In the deepest depth from outer space Millions of lightyears away Galaxies whistle devine melodies Cosmic clouds building solar systems Out of a shell of gas and dust An environment where no life dwells A star is dying colourful and bright The birth of a Supernova Cosmic rays expand by the speed of light The birth of a Supernova Black holes swallowing the remnants Disappearing in the dark A massive sun turns into sparks Creating building blocks of life Reaching critical mass Some light up the sky as they die A star is dying colourful and bright The birth of a Supernova Cosmic rays expand by the speed of light The birth of a Supernova Nuclear fuel is exhausted The core collapses A billion suns bright A star is dying colourful and bright The birth of a Supernova Cosmic rays expand by the speed of light The birth of a Supernova Nuclear fuel is exhausted The core collapses A billion suns bright

(music: Chris T.Ian - Max Sauber /lyrics: Philip Rio Ries - Max Sauber) Greed, hate and ignorance are the evil seeds In a world filled with empty receptacles A fertile soil The ones awake, the others sleeping and unaware Letting grow the tree of Kilesa Lying in front of your TV screen You don’t realise the threat Half-asleep as so many others The seeds dig their roots Deep into your doped mind Demons of defilement Let the tree rise Greed is taking hold of you Caught in this vicious circle You’re only longing for more Possession becoming your new dream Substitute your freedom for shiny things Letting grow the tree of Kilesa The seeds becoming trees, Becoming whole woods Ingraining deeper and deeper Taking possession of your kind You’re too tired to resist Too scared to fight There’s no resistance The tree can start to grow It seizes your thoughts Starts controlling them Where does this poison come from? Created by mankind Corporate society's Consumption machinery Supported by all us sleepers who let this happen Supported by all us sleepers who let this be You start forgetting about your dreams You start forgetting about your wishes So who’s to blame? Who wanted this? Who messed it up? Where did it all go wrong? It’s all of us who accepted the seed It’s all of us sleepers Sleepers' Guilt No goals, no hope, no resistance Mechanical consumption your only aim and purpose Blame it on yourself you mindless sleeper Blinded by all those meaningless goods The poison is creeping into your mind They don't want you to feel They don't want you to think They are feeding this tree of self-destruction Ignoring the signs Hating yourself, Greedy for more You devour insignificant music Brainwashing information TV and internet your new religion Acquired knowledge is dumped for smattering Fed with disposable goods Blinded by senseless entertainment Led by corporate society Longing for the good life you’ve been promised You could wake up, take a risk Take the lead, start using your voice Break free from your eternal sleep Break free and stand tall You prefer gathering the rotten fruits Fruits of fear and despair You prefer gathering the rotten fruits Your life is full filled with greed, hate and despair

Working all day to afford your life You can’t find any sleep at night Blinded by the bright lights Of a world that never sleeps Now I look at what you have It is all you wanted The walls are coming down on you A hole’s left in your heart You flee from this life Into a fake existence Deeper and deeper So far away from reality You don’t have the power The will to make a change If you had the guts Had what it takes Just a stranger in a crowd Going with the flow Kilesa’s in charge now You’re restrained by fears You flee from this life Into a fake existence Deeper and deeper So far away from reality You don’t have the power The will to make a change If you had the guts Had what it takes Forgive yourself For what you are What you’re not Forgive yourself You despise what mankind has become Hating your next for what they own They are different You cannot understand Why they walk on your glorified land Alone in the dark Closing your eyes You cannot sleep You cannot wake up You flee from this life Into a fake existence Deeper and deeper So far away from reality You don’t have the power The will to make a change If you had the guts Had what it takes Deceived by your life What the hell is this shit You sow the hatred Make everybody go away

You no longer recognize the old face Distorted grimace Under the veil of hate, greed and ignorance Accept your destiny or fight for what seems right Right from the start You’ve been that blind I’ve felt lost and lonely Closed your eyes Didn’t want to see The tree seized my soul Luxury goes with slavery I tried to be worthy Subjected to the new world order The roots enfettered me I led you into my trap It looked so good and new Appeal turned into frustration Ready to work for the soul collectors Your life is meaningless You’re all just my tools Kneel before the machinery You’re all so exchangeable We could accept our impermanence Lay down our suffering Find out about our own non-self See the true nature of reality Led by my own frustrations Imprisoned in my mind Driven by ignorance I have given in to the tree Cannot refuse Cannot resist For you cannot wake up Humankind Lost wanderers Trapped within the projections You created of your life We could accept our impermanence Lay down our suffering Find out about our own non-self See the true nature of reality We could accept our impermanence Lay down our suffering Find out about our own non-self See the true nature of reality I make you suffer Bring death over you Drain your energy You’re feeding me You senseless worm Trapped in the cycle Of rebirth and suffering Tangled in your own ego Your meaningless life is the price In reality you’re none of this You chose to be a defenceless sleeper Let it go The tree Of Greed Of Ignorance Let it go The tree Of Hate Of Kilesa We could reflect on ourselves And the world we could accept one another Become a community Reflect on what we do really need Face our craving for more Renounce from it Release from it Detach from it Wide awake and resistant the tree can’t grow Conscious and resistant No one can control your mind Let it go the tree of Kilesa You can’t suppress me I am your life All you know I am the tree But then the tree we nourish Would have to die
