We are the tyrants within
This is my burden to carry

Poison in the veins of gracious earth
Creeping mean disease, a bleeding flow

This world is a dirty pool and we sink
Ist es das was Ihr wollt oder nicht versteht
So kanns nicht enden
Wir sind Verderben
And this is my burden

Loud horns trumpet the end
Sounds of perverted disharmony
We are the tyrants within
This is my burden to carry

Roaring voids of night
Season of unreason
Bloodstained, angels unshrouded
My burden to carry
Schandwerk, schreiende Nacht
Blutraub, ihr saugt weiter
Bohrt tief, tief ins fleisch
Ihr labt Euch am Untergang

Evil feeds you
Lights are dimming
Sleep well

This is the end
Das ist das Ende

    General CommentTrying to guess at the german bits (Some native german OR english speaker would be good, I guess:)

    It is what one wants or does not understand.
    This will never end.
    We are spoiled.

    Second german section:

    Shamework, crying night.
    Bloodloss, it keeps sucking.
    Deep boredom, deep in the flesh.
    You are refreshed with the fall.

    The last sentence is obiviously just repeat of the english one. Anybody want to correct the translation?

    My favorite song from the album, although the use of German in particular makes it quite reminiscent of Rammstein - not generally a bad thing.

    General CommentI'm german... I'll try give it a go:

    Is this what you want or don't understand?
    It cannot end like that
    We are decay

    and the second section:
    (I don't know if "shamework" is correct but I can't find a translation.... and it sounds all right to me)

    Shamework, crying night
    blood-predation, you keep on sucking
    gouge (?) deep, deep into the flesh
    you are refreshed by/with (?) the fall

    I like him switching between the languages, it sounds good.
    My favorite song is 'Endless night', but I'm not really settled on this one song...
