Track Name: Fight to survive
I am trapped in this jungle of concrete
Surrounded by the most dangerous animals alive
I have to fight to survive

I have to fight to survive (x2)

From police brutality to organized criminality
I reject the evils of this corrupted society

I have to fight to survive this reality I despise

Disgusted from what I witness every day
By living in a world ruled by violence and hate

I have to fight to survive this reality I despise (x2)

I must overcome this suffocating hate
Turning my eyes red and grinding my teeth
I need to find balance in hostility

All around evil dominates uncontested over this decay
I need to find a way to escape this insanity

Put with my back against the wall, I?m left with no other way than to fight back

Might makes right is the law of this world
Where life has no value and money rules
Everything is downtrodden in the name of profit
Learn the ways of the enemy, learn how to fight back effectively
Time to raise up the head from the ground,
Time to fight to survive
Track Name: Living in an age of mass extinction
We are at the present time living in an age of mass extinction. Each year, more than 20,000 unique species disappear from this planet forever. This represents more that two species per hour. Mass extinction is the outcome of the ever increasing progress of the machinery of civilization.

Alienated from the natural world
Guided by anthropocentric attitudes

The average human being is unaware and uncaring
About the biological holocaust

Rise up and fight back
How long will the Earth survive?
Rise up and fight back
Or it will be too late

Mankind - the plague killing the Earth
Unseeing eyes, uncaring hearts

Human impact on the Earth must diminish
For the violent assault on nature to cease

You have been taught that you have freewill, that you have the right to do
whatever you feel like. So do you really think you are free?

But your freedom is a lie, at the expense of others who die
Countless, with every second passing by, countless, they suffer, they die

We must find again our roots to link ourselves back to the Earth
It's a way in which to search for the truth

Rise up and fight back
How long will the Earth survive?
Rise up and fight back
Or it will be too late

The facts are clear. More plant and animal species will go through extinction within our generation than have been lost for natural causes over the past two hundred million years. And that will be the price of progress,ecological collapse, the death of Nature.

Day after day this world draws closer to the end (x5)
Track Name: Reinforced
Into this world I was born to suffer and weep
My entire existance spent in continuous suffering

Compelled to stagnate from birth to the grave
I won't end up with my days trapped in this decay

To know that life is pain is strength in the end
In order to survive you must fortify your body and mind
Cheated and fooled again, enemies on every side
Alone against the world, I will never let them win

Fed by bloodstained hands
Someday I'll break free of the chains holding me to the ground

I have faced misfortune eye to eye
Then washed the tears from my face
With persistence, I overcame the test of time

Through the dance of days I have remained
Reinforced! (x4)

Memories stay never to die
Time past won't disappear
As the fire in my heart, burns eternally

I have not been mislead from the attainingment of my goals
I will always try to break these chains
My heart will never change

Ageing took a toll on the ones that I used to call my friends
Made them, weak and soft
But not to me, Reinforced!
Track Name: Warpaint
I Wear my colours in the battlefield
I Wear my colours and I am ready to kill (x2)

Resistance - We won't step back (x2)

March forward into an hell made of flesh and steel
Encircled by enemies, through their corpses I'll force my way out

Resistance - We won't step back (x2)

Bloodlust drags me deep into the pits of hell
Amidst the tortured souls fighting unto death

Covered with torn flesh and blood, I continue to advance
Frontline in the attack, face to face with the enemy

Hell no longer awaits as I run straight into its flames

Onward to - the battlefield
Death - or victory (x4)

Death before dishonor, the true path of the warrior
The prize of the battle: the head of the enemy
Pierced high on top of our pikes (x2)
Track Name: Afraid of this world
Afraid of this world
Afraid of what surrounds me
Where living beings are used as things
And greed and avarice prevail
Over all justice and decency

Girls selling their bodies in the streets
Forests burning, wildlife disappearing
And children dying without even being born

An entire planet feeding on carcasses
Overpopulated and polluted, addicted to drugs and alcohol

Blood and sweat pouring from the hands of a society on the verge of self annihilation
Hostage of weakness and debauchery

As I venture into the realms of corruption and vice
A sea of famished filthy hands reach to infect me

Innocence is dying in this sick and lonely world
Careless of all identity, desperate and cold

Fall from grace
They cower and plead
For mercy and leniency
For salvation and release

But the chance to redeem is a far off memory
There is no salvation, to be seen
Track Name: Holy war
Holy war, fight the holy war
Overthrow the empire built on blood

Countless lives perish day by day
While you stand still in front of this sickness
My life's mission to bring them liberation

Holy war, fight the holy war
Overthrow the empire built on blood

Countless lives perish day by day
While you stand still in front of this sickness
My life's mission to bring them liberation

Members of a species that has collectively waged relentless war against
defenceless creatures and all of the natual world

The human destruction of its own kind and of the myriad forms of life
With whom we cohabit the Earth must be halted

Fight fire with fire, that's what we must do
To put an end to the slaughter of the innocent

Their blood flows red just like yours or mine
Their suffering is just as real as yours or mine
Yours or mine (x2)

As a thousand tears have been shed
Brothers and sisters continue to cry and bleed

Staring into the depths of hell now I know, what my place in this world is
For justice will only be attained if I throw myself in the frontline
Conscience is the light guiding me out of this swamp, now I know what has to be done
Talk is ineffective and tears won't end the slaughter
Only action counts

Holy war, fight the holy war
Overthrow the empire built on blood
Track Name: Ordinary life in an occupied land
My hands tied in the back
He comes to me with a punch and a sack

He covers my head with a hood
The noise is loud and pierces my brain

My poor mother is worried sick, I'm sure
She buried my brother before me, she will endure

My pathetic shirt hangs proud
Like a blood-stained flag unfurled

I'm in here for days on end
or is it months, I no longer comprehend

My poor mother is worried sick, I'm sure
She buried my brother before me, she will endure

I am broken now but I will not confess
Soon I will leave my body
Let those cowards clean up the mess

He beats me again today
Then its another's turn to play

The noise is too loud
And I can feel the shroud

Warm blood dripping slowly onto the floor
Pouring from this dying body
My left eye is gone, and my legs, I can't sense them anymore
Shackles cutting my wrists, how much longer can I resist?

Torture, it goes on for days without end
I crave for death to liberate me from this torment

I am broken now but I will not confess
Soon I will leave my body
Let those cowards clean up the mess

Of my lifeless battered flesh

A few more thoughts before I go
I have been murdered, this you must know
I have been abducted and killed because of my love for freedom, for my land, for my people
From my blood that soaks the land, from the copious tears that I have shed
From the hidden ditch where my body lies
A vengeful wrath will soon rise

The day is coming when we will drive the invader out of our land (x2)

*Dedicated to all the native nations killed by imperialism of every color, defending their cultures from the eurocentrism and globalization of human rights. Particularly to Ulster, Tibet and to the palestinians daily slaughtered by the american weapons of the israelian occupation army*
Track Name: Lament for a fallen soldier
As I see my comrades falling on the battlefield
their martyrdom reinforces my faith in the struggle which got them killed
and like them, I will place my soul deep in the valley of death
standing proud against the enemy until the very end

Fight to the last breath
Only in the struggle do we find a true meaning to life
There's no reason to live without a reason to die

Despite many traitors and turncoats, I won't give up
I will continue until they drain my last drop of blood
This mission is a destiny sealed from above
Through barricades and minefields, I will march on

Fight to the last breath
Only in the struggle do we find a true meaning to life
There's no reason to live without a reason to die

Lament for a fallen soldier

In the desperation of the circumstances
I have not winced nor cried aloud
My head is bloody, but unbowed

I have not winced nor cried aloud
My head is bloody, but unbowed

Vomited out from hell to take my life, the hordes of demons will find me
unafraid
And even if I will fall today what I believe won't die with me

And even if I will fall today what I believe won't die with me (x2)

Justice delayed is justice denied
Oppose the evil that man created

For in death there is rebirth
This is war and we continue where you left off
Here we are, sitting beside your deathbed, overshadowed by pain

The copious tears we shed with sorrowed painful eyes
Will help us not to forget and to continue the fight
In our bleeding hearts we will always keep the memory of your sacrifice

*In memory of Barry Horne*
