think about all the good in your life
- it's only temporary
think about all the positive sides in life
- they never last forever

so drink to forget
and drown all your sorrow
bury your dreams
choose mind refinery

all the tears and the fears and the lies and the cries and the...
(nepenthe)
all the tears and the fears and the lies and the cries of the past

when the light of the chosen has died
when the Master is slave to his life

all the tears and the fears and the lies and the cries and the...
(forget)
all the love and the hate and the hate and the hate for you - my love

when the light of chosen has died
it is time to do something right, for once, goddamned!

so drink to forget
and drown all your sorrow
bury your dreams
and choose Catharsis!

all the tears and the fears and the lies and the cries and the...
(revenge)
all the hate in the world is the power to bring you down!

when the light of chosen has died
it is time to pay back for their crimes

    It then says "Imposter!" at the end.

    The song is about alcoholism but it also speaks about the drink taking away the memories and worries of the past. Nepenthe, I believe, is a drug that causes people to forget stuff. And "catharsis" oftens refers to using artwork, music, or whatever as a way to overcome certain feelings.

    In this case, it would refer using alcohol to overcome problems in the past.
    >all the tears and the fears and the lies and the cries of the past

    >when the light of the chosen has died
    I guess this is referring to alcohol as the "chosen". I see the "light of the chosen" as being the appeal that alcohol has on the drinker. Thus, there comes a point when alcohol loses it's touch and then they realised they're helplessly hooked or something. Sentenced might have had something else in mind tho.
