Made to Measure
Destination 666
Desperate
Dead End Love



Gallery in Black
Below
A silent moment
The sobering



They speak
If you wish
Night's end






Made to measure

Inside... despair is much stronger now
But time made me believe in nothing
No I will never be of your kind
I' ll keep on fighting to resist
Forever damned in opposition
I' ll give my very best

Chorus
I won' t follow - Never will I get in line
I feel so hollow - But I' ll keep my fate in hand
To much sorrow - The way you go was never mine
I won' t follow- until my bitter end

I feel the end much closer now
As I lose all my strength somehow
But I will never stop to fight you
Forever straight against you all
All your deeds still unforgiven
For me it' s fight or fall

All these words seem so pathetic
But that' s the way I feel about you
And I swear youl never chanche me
Until my heart won' t beat no more
Fear the force I' ve got inside








Liner Notes!

The song deals with the topic of keeping your own Identity up against all influences that try to bring you in any kind of certain direction.. It' s a statement against the brainwash-society that forces people to become marginal parts of the " big machine" that won' t stop runnig until the very end. Follow your dreams and beware who to trust and who to doubt...


Dieses Stück ist ein Statement gegen die Gehirnwäsche-Mentalität der Gesellschaft die Menschen von klein auf über Erzihung, Ausbildung und Beruf zu funktionierenden leeren Hüllen macht. Folgt euren Idealen, passt auf wem ihr glaubt vertrauen zu können und wer euch in irgendeine Richtung verbiegen will...







Destination 666

It' s a hurly-burly full-moon
Blood is boiling in our veins
But the dawn will be there to soon
Time is short - nothing remains

Tonight the air is burning
Destination: 666
Just like a divine yearning
It' s our will to cross the styx

Chorus:
We turned the world around
With helter-skelter on our minds
Stand against so you' ll fail
Walk with us or burn in hell
And when you fry no one ¥ll cry
We' ll await your last goodbye
This world demands all your devotion

Oh Yes we praise the twilight
And nothing seems to pacify
The only way to be is by night
A certain force one can' t deny

Tonight the air is burning
Destination: 666
Just like a divine yearning
It' s our will to cross the styx

The sirens, now calling, (¥re) taking your sanity
No chance to resist their magical sound
No matter what you do or say
You can cry or even pray
Your soul is lost now in anyway
You' ll never find the light of day
Legions Of Black took it away
So be with us forevermore!

Chorus:
We turned the world around
With helter-skelter on our minds
Stand against so you' ll fail
Walk with us or burn in hell
And when you fry no one ¥ll cry
We' ll await your last goodbye
This world demands all your devotion

... your devotion








Liner Notes!

This Song is about the evilness we all like to live out throgh Metal Music. It also says don' t take yourselves to serious, just switch day and night and party on in the name of the beast! Enjoy, 666 hail and prosit!


Dieser Song ist eine huldvolle Hommage an das böse Lebensgefühl des Metal und die dunkle Seite die wir alle damit ausleben. Es richtet sich auch ein wenig gegen diejenigen, die das als Dogma überinterpretieren und zum Lachen in den Keller gehen... Es ist ein Aufruf die Nacht zum Tag zu machen und absolut keine Gefangenen zu machen, Prost!







Desperate

My Intentions all so dark
You' ve to fear my stonecold heart
The close season is now over
If you want call me insane
But I will lose myself again...
... . I' ll bring sorrow!

I don' t know if it' s to late
To retract my forthcome hate
... It' s to late
I feel this pressure' s here to stay
Until I will do it and again...
... A lifleline will be taken!

Chorus
Lurid feelings taking all over
I don' t think I' ll make my stand
And Again... .
I feel my soul is burning
(As bitter grief withers me)
No need to think it all over
I just never wanna feel it again
The peace I seek I' ll never find it... .No!








Liner Notes!

DESPERATE (Death Parade) is writen from a serial killer' s point of view. It describes his fight against his inner demons that force him to keep on killing and spreading sorrow everywhere. Everyone of us has got demons inside that have to be fought in order not to do something really bad. Haven' t you ever thought: Oh god I' d like to kill that person. Revenge is a very evil poison that can change you to a murderous monster, evan if you' d deny it...


Desperate (Death Parade) beschreibt die Sicht eines Serienkillers, der gegen den Zwang, gewalttätig zu werden verzweifelt ankämpft. Jeder hat derartige Zwänge und Wünsche die böse sind und unterdrückt werden müssen. Wie oft hast Du in Gedanken schon jemanden getötet? Rache ist wirklich ein teuflisches Gift, das jeden von uns zu einem mörderischen Monster werden lassen kann...







Dead End Love

Six feet under (the) left hand path
Is where I' ll lay my heart to rest
Somewhere down there I found It' s perfect grave
Can' t see it' s long since dead
just like everything we had

I won' t go your way no more!
Bridge
All I felt in my heart
In the end now torn apart
I have to walk away...
to break these shades of grey!

What' s done is done it' s all to late
It' s time to brake the weak facade
I never thought you' d be so far away
Love lies bleeding on the ground...
Deep devotion turned around

I Won' t go your way!

Chorus:
Right now we reached the final point where the light just doesn' t shine
No our light just doesn' t shine
Somehow you didn' t realise!
And everything so wrong today - how could it ever seem so right?
Like a flower without light
This dead end love just died

Bridge:
Something it still hurts somehow
As I leave you now
(Deep inside) I' m feeling lonely
Restless I' m roaming
As I try to erase you from my soul

Yes it hurts to be back down
But my heart is no longer bound
Finally you' ll see... .

Chorus:
Right now we reached the final point where the light just doesn' t shine
No our light just doesn' t shine
Somehow you didn' t realise!
And everything so wrong today - how could it ever seem so right?
Like a flower without light
This dead end love just died








Liner Notes!

Danny wanted to do a negative love song without to much pathos. Therefore I wrote Dead End Love. It' s just a guy who has to leave his girl, because it just dosen' t fit anymore. Even if he realized that it' s still hard to let her really go because it' s always to erase 100% of feelings that once have been so strong as love usually is...


Danny wollte einen bösen Lovesong ohne zu viel Pathos. Darauf machte ich DEAD END LOVE. Mann verlässt Frau, weil es einfach nicht mehr geht. Auch wenn man an diesem Punkt angekommen ist, ist es immer noch schwer loszulassen, weil die einst so starke Liebe einfach nicht 100% auszulöschen ist...







Gallery in Black

If the future where a painting
I would have to paint it all black
With this life that I am living
Same to the pictures of my past

I don' t want your compassion
(¥Cause) that' s just the way it is
It' s an endless circulation ... on and on
I' ll be kept in all this bliss!
Chorus:
It' s time to lay my head down
I gave all hope away
This cold black night
Shall be my place to hide
With it' s silence - here to stay
Come on lay your fist down
I hear myself now say
As the cold bleak night
With open arms so bright
Will guide my me finally

I take the liquid poison
It' s magic seems so sweet!
It' s an escape (but) no solution
Yes sure, I really got that point indeed

One last wish - It' s still in here
To break free from all my fear ---- I will be released before I die
Oh my god I have failed
I Can feel the heat It' s coming
To erase my (mortal) soul
(¥Cause) I won' t be released before I die ... before I die



Chorus:

Right now we reached the final point where the light just doesn' t shine
No our light just doesn' t shine
Somehow you didn' t realise!
And everything so wrong today - how could it ever seem so right?
Like a flower without light
This dead end love just died








Liner Notes!

There are times within your life where you sit back to take your time to reflect abut your life and all the mistakes you made. In the meantime between DEVIANT and BELOW I had such times more or less often. Gallery in Black is a picture of the special emotional state of mind one goes through when that point is reached... The good things will be forgotten, the bad things are kept in mind.


Es gibt Zeiten, wo man sich allein zurückzieht um über sein eigenes Leben zu reflektieren und über alle Schwierigkeiten und Fehler, die man nicht mehr zu meistern glaubt, oder rückgängig machen kann. Die Gallerie ist voll von Bildern, die den emotionalen Geisteszustand an diesem Punkt reflektieren... Das Gute vergisst du, das Schlechte behältst du im Kopf.







Below

Deep inside a silent sorrow
Reminds me that I am really wrong
I was never honest to my self
I pretend that I feel fine
An empty smile keeps me in line
I feel something ticking in my head

Chorus
I... I live a lie!
(And) Nothing is right
I can' t stand the truth I found
It turned my world all upside down
Someone else led my life for me
With my feet back on the ground
I realise that I was bound
Someone else led this life for me

Bridge:
How could I know?
The force came from below
The cleansing inspiration
It' s nothing but insane!

Chorus
I... I live a lie!
(And) Nothing is right
I can' t stand the truth I found
It turned my world all upside down
Someone else led this life for me
With my feet back on the ground
I realise that I was bound
Someone else led this life for me


See yourself it is the same
You' re playing such a feeble game
It' s time to be true to your self
Take your doubt and let it grow
It' s coming strong right from below
There is something I want to hear you say:

" With my feet back on the ground
I realise that I was bound
Someone else led this life for me"








Liner Notes!

This taints into a similar dirrection as MADE TO MEASURE.
It' s a wake-up call to change the puppet' s lives most of us are forced to live. Realise where you stand and cut off the strings to free yourselves!


Das hier tendiert in die selbe Richtung wie MADE TO NEASURE. Es ist der Weckruf an uns alle, die wir ein Marionettendasein fristen. Zerschneidet die Bande und befreit euch!







A Silent Moment

Alone In Silence
I' m waiting to welcome the day
Time is creeping...
The night' s been so mournful grey
I remember your words from yesterday
All we shared gone by...
My trust In you is dead
Are you to blind to regret?
I' m missing your spirit today!








Liner Notes!

Just the introduction to the sobering. Silence is often cleansing your head and may help you to see the truh more clearly...


Bloß die Einleitung zu THE SOBERING. Stille Momente können helfen, den Kopf frei zu machen um die Wahrheit besser erkennen zu können...







The Sobering

I tell you something sad
Your convictions died
Reduced to zero - all gone by
Who knows where or when you lost your way
Tell me where' s your spirit I' m missing it today

Anyway my dream is ending
But I won' t shed a tear
The link we had is broken
And nothing keeps me here
Harmony is lost forever like everything we had
Your world all so feeble is something I can' t bear
Ref.:
It' s gonna brake you
It' s gonna take you
To the end now
To the end / Much too deep down
Everything you betray
On your brand new way
Brings you to the ground now
Much too deep down
The sobering has just begun
And A thousand words can' t be undone ... . In my head
Bridge:
Ideals now soulless
All shattered in ruins they lay
Times are changing
The you I once knew castaway
Remember yourself from yesterday
I will rescue me!








Liner Notes!

Sometimes when you meet real close friends, almost brothers after some time, you' ll realize that time has changed there attitudes. It just made you both develop in very different directions. Realizing someone once close to you has forgotten the ideals you shared in the past can be a mournful sobering...


Manchmal nach längerer Trennung trifft man Freunde wieder, mit denen man beinahe brüderliche Bande in der Vergangenheit teilte... Die Zeit ändert Menschen doch. Es gibt Momente in denen klar wird das diese Freunde die gemeinsamen Ideale vergessen oder verraten haben. Eine schmerzliche Ernüchterung...







They Speak

Something wicked rules my pitch-black soul
Voices that guide me all the way
Out of hand I lose all self-control
All my freewill ' s led astray
So many doubts in my mind...

From deep inside I hear them yell
(As) they steal my heart away
Forever kept in my own hell
They force me to obey
So many doubts in my mind...


Walls of shelter tumble down
As I hear their lurid sound
All the way telling me what to do
Their desires grand madness They bring sadness
All those voices tell me what to do

Walls of shelter tumble down
As I hear their lurid sound
All the way they tell me what to do
Their desires grand madness They bring sadness
All those voices tell me what to do Oh.

Bridge
But who' s to blame
I' m sure it must be me
My resistance in vain
I just won' t break free
The pain through their sound
It takes my soul away
I know I can' t help myself
My freewill is led astray Oh


Chorus

End:
I tried to fight
To fight with all my might
But I am lost forevermore
It may be strange to you
But the voices -they keep telling me what to do









Liner Notes!

Just a discription of a depressive scizophrenic anxiety neurosis... .


Nur eine Beschreibung eine depressiven schizophrenen Angstneurose...







If you wish

And once again you failed now you feel lost
Cause you couldn' t find your way
You decide to drown the loss deep down in booze
But the pain won' t go away
The chair is falling ... falling ... falling to the ground
Through the gallows you found death
Slowly and painful it took your final breath

No one' s been there for you to guide you through
Your goddamn misery
In the end now cold as ice with no disguise
Your face paled eternally
The Chair is falling... .falling... falling to the ground
Through the gallows you found death
(So) slow(ly) (and painful) it took your final breath

Chorus:
Darkest Recollections
Of a life that' s been so grey
Brought up the wish inside
To leave it just today
Your totally broken heart
No longer shall it beat
All times you had ¥till now
Have been Nothing but forfeit

With the noose around your neck
There is no turning back... .. no more
The chair under your feet is...
Falling to the... falling to the...
falling to the ground










Liner Notes!

If one really once to kill him or her self he/she will defnettly be dead very soon. That' s a sientificly prooven fact. If you wish is a statement against people who play around with the oppertunuity of suicide. It' s a singn of weakness to extort people who care for you by telling them you' d kill yourself otherwise...



Wenn jemand wirklich sterben will, dann lebt er/sie nicht mehr lange. Das ist ein wissenschaftlich erwieseneres Faktum. IF YOU WISH wendet sich gegen Menschen, die mit Selbstmord spielen und drohen um ihnen nahestehende Menschen zu erpressen....







Night's End

The morning sun it hurts my eyes
After last night so full of sorrow
I' ve seen the world in it' s disguise
Everything I found seemed so hollow!

I' m pouring water into my face
To wash away last night' s disgrace
But the mirror says I failed
Remembering just keeps me pale
Born as outcast to the world
You can' t imagine how it hurts
As time paints another picture

No real hope is living in my mind
Experience increased the pain
It never changed the way I feel
All alone I always tried...
To overcome the grief I' m in
But the paintings still stay black











Liner Notes!

I wrote this one at the studio. It' s atmosphere reminded me slightly of PINK FLOYD. So I grabbed "THE WALL" and just let my thoughts flow. The final reflection is always a good ending for a thing. Therefore it took the streak from Gallery In Black, in order to throw the listener back into that lurid and depressive state of mind.


Diesen Text schrieb ich im Studio. Das entgültige Reflektieren ist immer das Ende einer Sache. Die Atmosphäre des Songs erinnerte mich etwas an PINK FLOYD. Deshalb habe ich THE WALL aufgelegt und einfach meine Gedanken schweifen lassen. Textlich nimmt der Song den roten Faden von GALLERY IN BLACK wieder auf, um den Hörer am Ende der Platte noch mal in diese beklemmend gespenstische Stimmung zu werfen...
