Track Name: Drawn and Quartered
Do you recognize your family
Hanging on the hooks
Decorating cookbooks
It’s delicious so don’t demonize me

There’s no reason for dismay
They were quite stupid anyway
And otherwise we would all starve
Life’s not so bad in the factory farm

See them become drawn and quartered

Soon you’ll follow your family
Hanging on the hooks
Decorating cookbooks
Don’t worry, it’s quick and cruelty-free

Your turn to be drawn and quartered

You’re the ideal meat for us to eat
You’re the perfect breed to satisfy our greed

Your turn to be drawn and quartered
We’re just hungry, not cold-hearted
Drawn and quartered…
Track Name: Deathmarch
March, march
March ahead!
Straight to your deathbed

Blindmen lead blindmen
Singing their anthem
Fathers sleep with their sons
Singing their anthem songs
Burnmarked with their narrowed truth
Watch the bigots brainwash you

CHORUS

Mothers sleep with their daughters
Swine lead pigs to slaughter
Willing to chant the criar’s
Halfwit mantra in choirs

CHORUS

Chatter in our ears
Chatter in our brain
Feeds the flock’s fears
Compels to obey
Track Name: Salt the Earth
You never got what you wanted
And your brainwaves got slanted
Now you’re so disenchanted
Hunter is gonna be the hunted

Salt the earth
What’s done will be reversed
Salt the earth
The ground you walk on
Shall be forever… cursed

You’ll be chased where nothing grows
What around comes, around goes
There is a place where nothing grows
It’s where your remains decompose
Track Name: Panic Paranoia
Panic paranoia
Some kind of psychosis
Panic paranoia
In delirious doses

I flirt with insanity
It twists and turns inside me

Disappear, disappear
Out of my troubled mind
Disappear, I wish
You vanished and died

Panic paranoia
Nightmares at noon
Panic paranoia
Suffocation is soon

I flirt with insanity
It’s harassing my harmony

CHORUS

…out of my troubled mind
Track Name: Lunacy
Sacred be this revenge
Ritual torn flesh stench
This vengeance is godsend

Not a star or crescent moon
Nor two-piece sacred wood
But a circle of…

Circle of lunacy

Three came in disguise
Fellowmen pay the price
Whilst you sunbathe in paradise

Not a star or crescent moon
Not a veil or Ku Klux hood
But a circle of…

Circle of lunacy

Their machine guns screen
Your ancient torture machine
Rinse in blood and repeat
The circle of lunacy
Track Name: Siberia
Сибирь, край мира
Холодная могила
В кровь утопила
То где я ходила

Мне сница Сибирь

Черная речка
Я дрожу вечна
Поезд на встречу
Из забытого детства

Черная речка
Я дрожу вечна
На улице страх
Из забытого детства

CHORUS

Красное небо сцёть чëрного снега
Память и мечта смешаются
Встречные поезда вспоминаются
…смешаются
Track Name: Sinners Like Us
They give no medals for sinners like us
They give no medals for killers like us

They dress them up in uniforms
And ship them to the bullet storm
That’s how the honor is born

CHORUS

They’ll wash us with shame
And ship to the mass grave
For sinners just like you and me

They’ll trash our ashes
And they’ll trash our dusts
We sinned, but not in their name

CHORUS

We didn’t dress in uniforms
And didn’t have our flesh torn
They didn’t like the vows we had sworn

We didn’t wear their colours
Nor fight for their dollars
Join the army, make our mothers mourn
Track Name: ANGST
Scalpel peel that pout off your face
Inhale funny fumes and back to rat race
There’s no sorrow, only happy thoughts
Obscure your vision, let the cynical rot

Somebody put something in my drink
And it’s affecting the way that I think
Pretty patterns, involuntary laughter
Let their chroloform cure your mood swings

Tinseltowns serving candy substances
Depression becomes series of trances
Scalpel peel that pout off your face
‘Cause world's nothing but a fucking pretty place
Track Name: Madhouse
When night comes I see him
He walks around our muppet wing
He has a fistful of puppet strings
But he never says a thing

In the madhouse

She’s always talking jibberish
And that makes me so feverish
Skull is full of murder
Convulsions and savage fervor

CHORUS

I heard her again, she was raving
And we trembled in our beds
With fireworks in our heads

When night comes I see him
He walks around our loony bin
He has a fistful of puppet strings
That we crave more than anything
Track Name: With Razorblades
Gut the little shits, shred them to bits
Cowardly pricks and their vanishing tricks
Linger, linger fingers on your throat’s trigger
Linger, linger fingers and the heap gets bigger

Kill them for me, kill them in my name
With razorblades

Piss on it
Gut the little shits, shred them to bits
With razorblades

With razorblades
