"Machtkampf" as written by Michael Amott, Angela Gossow, Christopher Amott and Daniel Erlandsson....
Flying high on blackened wings
Vengeance in my eyes
Colder than steel instantly real
A new power flows through me

Reaching out for something
Knowing that it's there - Somewhere

All I had was
All I gave
Was it not enough?
You took
You take
Never giving anything back

Bridges that I thought I crossed
Got to cross them all again
These parts that lead to nowhere
Mocked me all my life

Make a change
Break the chain
Make a change
End this game

Vengeance in my eyes
A new power flows in me

    General CommentMy favourite song on Doomsday Machine.

    For some reason, this reminds me of WWI. But Machtkampf is German for "Power Struggle". So, I'd guess its about a power struggle occurring within - the narrator has a darker side that seems to be taking control of him/her. The narrator seems to be unable to reverse the dark side, and is in a struggle to "End this game" - to make the step to eliminate the alien force.

    Anyway, that's just my interpretation.
