Lyrics:

Paragon of Misery (Lyrics:Vrachiolias)

You hit the road you’re going home, a day you call it,
perhaps you did it for employee of the month.
What’s on the news maybe a horrible disaster,
drowning in misery you love it oh so much.

And now you’re waiting for your life turn something better.
What have you done to think that you can have it all?
Your heart is beating and your lungs are full of air but you are not alive.

You’re faking everyday it’s now your second nature,
the lies have come to be extension of your breath,
Others are merely pawns into your perfect planning,
into this thing that you call life but I call death.

And still you’re waiting for your life turn something better.
What have you done to think that you can have it all?
Your heart is beating and your veins are full of  blood but you are not alive.

The Fallen Demon (Lyrics:Vrachiolias)
A highly trained assassin, the one who saves the day,
but now my hands are covered with blood of innocents.
Betrayed in life and killed, oh friend I didn’t see,
my path to hell awaits me, the one to set me free.
My soul has little meaning, willing to pay the price,
if only I had noticed he played with loaded dice.

And now I’m cursed to live on, missing the one I love.
Condemned by Hell and Heaven, what am I fighting for?
A dark, derelict alley, is now my only home.
Condemned by Hell and Heaven… I’m the demon that has failed!

This image in the mirror, this vicious, hollow form
I need to know what happened, what’s this that I’ve become.
A clown arrives with orders, he has the master’s plans
To lead a fiendish army, burn all Heaven, burn it down!
This destiny he gave me and thought I would accept
But I’m a slave to no one, a choice I won’t regret.

And now I’m cursed to live on, missing the one I love
Condemned by Hell and Heaven, what am I fighting for?
A dark, derelict alley, is now my only home
Condemned by Hell and Heaven…  I’m the demon that has failed!

No one will give me orders, no one will use me!

And now I’m cursed to live on, missing the one I love
Condemned by Hell and Heaven, what am I fighting for?
A dark, derelict alley, is now my only home
Condemned by Hell and Heaven…  I’m the demon that has failed… not!

World In Chains (Lyrics: Panagis)

A dark vicious circle of power and greed
The world that we live in, the lives that we lead
We thrive on destruction and spirits we break
The words of our leaders, the hiss of a snake

No remorse, no release, a world in chains, conscience sleeps.

Lines are drawn, fate is sealed.
Denied, betrayed.
Cling on to your inner void.
No fire, inside.
Shattered forts, freedom’s rust.
Disease, decay, you’re done!

The freedom of choice, an illusion of man.
Revealing the truth does not fit the plan.
Submissive and scared, congenital slaves.
We crawl on our knees, from cradle to grave.

No remorse, no release, a world in chains, conscience sleeps.

Lines are drawn, fate is sealed.
Denied, betrayed.
Cling on to your inner void.
No fire, inside.
Shattered forts, freedom’s rust.
Disease, decay, no hope, you’re dead!

A skein of lies uncoils, spreading like a disease.
Misery’s a leech that drains the will to fight.
Bodies stacked in a pile of guilt, all that’s left behind.
White flag is raised, it’s the end of human kind!

Lines are drawn, fate is sealed.
Denied, betrayed.
Cling on to your inner void.
No fire, inside.
Shattered forts, freedom’s rust.
Disease, decay, no hope, you’re dead!

Medal of Honor (Lyrics: Tsaklanos, Vrachiolias)

Thousands of bullets run through my mind freezing my soul to the core.
For all the people I killed fighting through battlefields.
Hundreds of children lie dead on the ground, their faces haunting my dreams.
Yet still I’m leading the play, in this insanity.

They made me a soldier mother but only darkness is filling my soul.
My consciousness is calling, instead I feel that I’m losing control.
A gun they gave me father, no more target practice this thing is for real.
This altar of money is feeding on sorrow and fear.

How could I be so naive, could not discern through their filthy lies.
Made me believe I was like a God, to say who lives or dies.
A lifeless figure stares back at me,his judging eyes follow mine.
Their masquerade finally revealed, redemption all I seek.

They made me a soldier mother but only darkness is filling my soul.
My consciousness is calling, instead I feel that I’m losing control.
A gun they gave me father, no more target practice this thing is for real.
This altar of money is feeding on sorrow and fear.

So dark in my soul, so cold in my heart
I’m dying inside, I am dying inside!

They made me a soldier mother but only darkness is filling my soul.
My consciousness is calling, instead I feel that I’m losing control.
A gun they gave me father, no more target practice this thing is for real.
This altar of money is feeding on sorrow and fear.
