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…

Deathmarch 04:47
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
3.
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
4.
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
5.
Lunacy 03:44
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

Siberia 03:28
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
7.
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
8.
ANGST 02:05
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
9.
Madhouse 03:40
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
10.
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
