Track Name: The Reaper's Blade
I am the bringer of death and the reaper is my name
I pump fear into every man and take away his life
to some I only am a symbol as to death
but others recognize me as my proper form

I am the face of all fears, all will suffer my blade
one swing will bring the end and decapitate your corpse
one can't escape my torment they don't know I'm there
instead they fear the darkness in which my presence dwells
in midnight darkness I will rid you of your life
no being can renounce me I am forever death

I will forever reign for all eternity
I am an invincible force nothing destroys me
through centuries of being some have tried to end my wrath
but soon they found that death is certain life is not

I am the one you despise for taking your loved ones lives
I showed them no mercy instead I showed them pain
in midnight darkness I did rid them of their lives
no being can renounce me I am forever to remain death
it's harsh reality for one to face the real death
yet in the glimpse the see me they have no life left for dread

and you can't destroy me, I am the one who creates death, bow your head to me and die
you can't escape me, you don't know it's time, time for me to take your life
death
Track Name: Masked Murder
incarcerated for 15 years he returned on the blackest night
pale white emotionless face and no words he'd ever speak
the blackest eyes, the devil's eyes no heart or soul just black
fratricide with a kitchen knife w/o seeing feeling no harm

upon this night, the blackest night, the night he came
he will kill anyone who interferes with his evil deeds

Chorus
He hides in the black, he stalks his victims then makes his strike
You cannot expect him, you can't predict your time to die
a thrust at your throat, hands tight around your neck
feeling his grip keep getting tighter, your face becomes blue
you struggle for air, fighting his grip your death draws nearer
all conscience now lost, no will left to fight, you're going to die now by strangulation
your body it falls death to the floor, proud of his work he finds another victim

terror screams break the silence of night running scared to loose your life
locking doors hiding from his attack
from the dark he will arise
6 shots fired into his chest to the ground his body it falls
sigh in relief that you're alive, he'll arise with a knife in your back


upon this night, the blackest night the night he came home
he's returned to deliver the death to his sister that he has lost
stabbed in the eye, shot in the chest fatal from a balcony's height
to the night he arose, to the black he returns, evil cannot die

Chorus
He hides in the black, he stalks his victims then makes his strike
a thrust at your throat, hands tight around your neck
feeling his grip keep getting tighter, your face becomes blue
you struggle for air, fighting his grip your death draws nearer
all conscience now lost, no will left to fight, you're going to die now by strangulation
your body it falls death to the floor, proud of his work he finds another victim
helpless victims, the devil's night slaughter many have died
Track Name: Converted By Decapitation
Threnody of the priests, hypocritical minds they're savage beasts
sing their everlasting hymns of hate
they poison minds of their servants souls, feeding hate into their hearts
speechless evil lurks in the dark

CHORUS
Converted by decapitation life taken by the Christian fate
pagan sinners slaughtered in the name of god
devoured limp souls sent into everlasting damnation
for their weak beliefs they take their pagan heads
converted by the committers of their own sin
hypocrisy and mayhem becomes the world they create
raiding through homes, spreading fear to non believers
with decapitation they convert the unjust sinners

Consume the weak and despondent ones into their faith of dread and hate
restless killers becomes of them
missionaries they spread their fate, reign of terror inflicting all
believe this fate or you die
by the hands of faithful ones, many have died to ensure this fate
Dominance is what they seek
accept their beliefs to spare your life, deny this fate and loose your head
through your death you're Christianized

CHORUS

Threnody of the priests, evil minds they're savage beasts
sing their everlasting hymns of hate
they poison minds of their servants souls, feeding hate into their hearts
speechless evil lurks in the dark
Consume the weak and despondent ones into their faith of dread and hate
restless killers becomes of them
missionaries they spread their fate, reign of terror inflicting all
believe this fate or you die
Track Name: Sentenced To Extermination
Fires spread the stench of burning bodies
human ash rains upon the ground
a father forced to burn his first living son
in an oven of hellish flames
weakened by the effects of starvation
living skeletons walk amongst the camp
stories told in which non did believe
are real and destined for their deaths
showers cleanse of all life left within in them
the bodies thrown into a burning pit
train loads of humans arrive daily
the horrors revealed to them quick
stripped of all humanity and branded like cattle for identification
death is now their future destiny
they pray the almighty that it's quick

Chorus
Arbeit macht frei is written above the gates yet only upon liberation
only freedom promised to all is the freedom for death
their life in here is their last
a brutal death awaits for all who're locked into this camp
their life in here is no better
sentence of extermination millions now die
faith to live is no more

Experiments grotesque and inhumane
victims screaming begging for death
castration incesteral pregnancy
fascination for a helpless twin
performed by the angel of death
his smile hides his crimes
survivers of this brutal tests
live with nightmares they'd never forget

Sentenced to their deaths

Chorus
Track Name: Soul Afire
instrumental
Track Name: Usurpation
A collision of forces they fight for the power
their blood sheds upon the battlegrounds
All flesh ripped apart by force driven steel
the victims lie dying in a pool of blood
cannons are fired and tear apart the bodies
of the soldiers held victim to it's force
the rebels hope glory from the end of this usurpation
the price is the lives of millions

Chorus
The fight rages on and more people now die
corpses stenched, rotting, maggots feed
smash down the walls destroying the throne
taking the lands for their own cause
dying by their force, for the laws that are enforced
Usurpation

tearing the heads off the dead rotting rebels
the ruler is angry and vengeful now
killings their kids, vengeance is his
slicing the throats of their wives

Chorus x2
