In the darkness of Time,
In the name of God
Truth dies in the dying shout
Crying kisses on killers' hands
And the glory grows on glorious heads
This is the truth of their God;
this is the death of my belief
From the glorious mouth
deadly words come out;
They want me to die

I awake but light has dissappeared..
Maybe it's died like me in this dark hell
Black days, black nights,
Redemption - shouts from my heart
In the killing silence, alive but dead. I'm going mad

The Trembling steps I try to take
Will slowly make me finish my way
In a Pit - but I'm falling on the floor and feel
The depths before me
Just one more step
Would have brought me to my death!

Upon rousing, I look around: I can see a sulphurous light
I'm chained on a low form: The final plan, the scaffold
And when this thought lights my future
I feel I can't hold on...

So let the End take me....Let me fly over my life
And when the tears flow no more..Destiny will show truth
Where dreams are born, where I escape from the demons
Hunting my tormented soul, where no one follows

There I escaped from the demons..
And more are the depths I escaped from
And demons painted on the grey walls
Looking upward there is painted death
Just a second - and I know: I smile upon my glittering death
The moving pendulum
Agitation of spirit keeps me awake
while I wait for my death. I'm afraid
The last minute comes, but it lets me live
Rats on my straps... and I can stay here
