ACROSS THE ACHERON (18/1/2019)

1. BURNING PARADISE (6:12)
MUSIC: JANNE HIETALA & ANTTI PÖNTINEN
LYRICS: JANNE HIETALA

IT TOOK TIME TO REALIZE
THAT THERE'S A TROUBLE IN PARADISE
AND IT WAS ALREADY TOO LATE
AWAY FROM THE SPOTLIGHT
SWARMING PARASITES TOOK ADVANTAGE
NAIVETY SEALED OUR FATE

NOW WE WADE THROUGH BLOOD
NOW WE STUMBLE ON CORPSES IN DARK

IDYLL BROKEN
LET IT SOAK IN
TAKE A STEP DOWN FROM THE CASTLE IN THE AIR
SEE ALL THE INNOCENT BODIES LEFT BEHIND
AND BEAR THEM IN MIND

BETTER BLOCK THE DOOR
REINFORCE THE WALLS
BARRICADE THE WINDOWS
WE ALL

POWERLESS BEINGS
FEEDING OVERWHELMING
ENDLESS HORROR STREAM
SCENE BY SCENE
TURNING MORE NUMB AND HOLLOW

SHOCK AND INCREDULITY
CHANGING TO COLD APATHY
RANGE OF CARE REDUCES
AND THEN ANOTHER TRAGEDY
JUST NOT ME NOR FAMILY
AND THE BALL KEEPS ON ROLLING

ANOTHER STEP TOWARDS INHUMANITY

KINGDOM BROKEN
STUNNED AND FROZEN
INVERTED FLAG FLOATS OVER SILENT STREETS
WE AIMED FOR PARADISE BUT ENDED UP IN HELL
TO BURNING PRISON CELL

BETTER BLOCK THE DOOR
REINFORCE THE WALLS
BARRICADE THE WINDOWS

NOW WE SERVE PARANOIA
WE BOW TO THE FEAR
WE LEARNED IT THE HARD WAY
THROUGH BLOODY TEARS
WE STAND ON THE EDGE OF A NEW FRONTIER
ANOTHER TRY TO IMMANENTIZE THE ESCHATON

DO NOT GIVE INTO FEAR
BURNING PARADISE

POWERLESS BEINGS
FEEDING OVERWHELMING
ENDLESS HORROR STREAM
SCENE BY SCENE
TURNING MORE NUMB AND HOLLOW

OUR PARADISE BURNS

POWERLESS BEINGS
FEEDING OVERWHELMING
ENDLESS HORROR STREAM
SCENE BY SCENE
TURNING MORE NUMB AND HOLLOW

BETTER BLOCK THE DOOR
REINFORCE THE WALLS
BARRICADE THE WINDOWS

CUTTHROAT GAME (SINGLE 13/12/2018)

1. CUTTHROAT GAME (6:11)
MUSIC & LYRICS: JANNE HIETALA

THE COMMOTION TAKES ITS TOLL
VOICE REPEATS YOU ARE ALONE
I COULD RUN BUT I WOULDN'T GET FAR
NO MATTER HOW I TRY I CAN'T HIDE MY SCARS

I AM WEAK BUT I HAVE TO PLAY STRONG
PRETEND I FIT THE MOLD

I WISH FOR ANOTHER WAY
THAN WALLOWING IN PAIN
THAT IS EATING ME INSIDE
BUT ONLY IT FEELS RIGHT AND KEEPS ME ALIVE
I PAINT MY SELF-PORTRAIT
WITH DIFFERENT SHADES OF GREY
UNTIL OUTER SHELL DECAYS
I WILL HIDE MY TRUE FACE IN THIS CUTTHROAT GAME

I STAND IN A LINE
LEADING BACK TO WHAT I LEFT BEHIND
I COULD RUN
I COULD TRY
I COULD RUN
BUT I WOULDN'T GET FAR

THE GAME WAS RIGGED RIGHT FROM THE START
I WOULD NEVER BE ENOUGH

I WISH FOR ANOTHER WAY
THAN WALLOWING IN PAIN
THAT IS EATING ME INSIDE
BUT ONLY IT FEELS RIGHT AND KEEPS ME ALIVE
I PAINT MY SELF-PORTRAIT
WITH DIFFERENT SHADES OF GREY
UNTIL OUTER SHELL DECAYS
I WILL HIDE MY TRUE FACE IN THIS CUTTHROAT GAME
IN THIS CUTTHROAT GAME

I WISH FOR ANOTHER WAY
THAN WALLOWING IN PAIN
THAT IS EATING ME INSIDE
BUT ONLY IT FEELS RIGHT AND KEEPS ME ALIVE
I PAINT MY SELF-PORTRAIT
WITH DIFFERENT SHADES OF GREY
UNTIL OUTER SHELL DECAYS
I WILL HIDE MY TRUE FACE IN THIS CUTTHROAT GAME

EYE OF THE STORM (SINGLE 16/11/2018)

1. EYE OF THE STORM (6:35)
MUSIC & LYRICS: JANNE HIETALA

STORM RISES AND COVERS THE LAND
EVEN THE STRONGEST SHALL BEND TO WITHSTAND
TEARS FALL FROM THE RUPTURED SKY
DAY AND NIGHT
BUT AROUND US IS CALM
THERE'S NO SIGHT OF THE STORM
WHATEVER HAPPENS SOMEWHERE OUT THERE
WE DON'T CARE

THE CHAIN IS AS STRONG AS ITS WEAKEST LINK
SO LET THEM SINK
AND DON'T WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW
NO TOMORROW

IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL HERE IN THE EYE OF THE STORM
NOTHING CAN HURT US
WE ARE SAFE IN THE EYE OF THE STORM
SURROUNDED BY SORROW WE ARE
BUT STILL UNHARMED
IMMORTAL

WIND BLOWS AND TEARS OFF THE ROOTS
EVEN THE STRONGEST SHALL FALL
ABSOLUTE DESOLATION FOLLOWED BY FLOODS
DROWNING LIFE
DEVASTATION SPREADS
AND ITS VICTIMS BEG FOR A SHELTER
BUT WE OWE THEM NOTHING

ONE BLINK AND WE'RE GONE
BUT DON'T WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW
NO TOMORROW

IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL HERE IN THE EYE OF THE STORM
NOTHING CAN HURT US
WE ARE SAFE IN THE EYE OF THE STORM
SURROUNDED BY SORROW WE ARE
BUT STILL UNHARMED
IMMORTAL

I REFUSE TO BELIEVE
THOSE HORRIBLE THINGS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ME
YOU ARE CONTROLLED BY FEAR
IT'S SELF-EVIDENT THAT IT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE

SELF-BETRAYAL IS STRONG
THE STRANGLEHOLD GETS TIGHTER AND TIGHTER
BUT LIFE GOES ON
UNTIL WE REALIZE THAT WE ARE GASPING FOR BREATH

I REFUSE TO BELIEVE
I CLAW MY OWN EYES OUT SO I WOULDN'T SEE
I'LL STAND MY GROUND
WE ARE SAFE AND SOUND IN THE EYE OF THE STORM

IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL HERE IN THE EYE OF THE STORM
NOTHING CAN HURT US
WE ARE SAFE IN THE EYE OF THE STORM
SURROUNDED BY SORROW WE ARE
BUT STILL UNHARMED
IMMORTAL

PITCH BLACK (28/8/2015)

1. BACK TO LIFE (5:22)
MUSIC: JANNE HIETALA & MIKKO KUOPPAMAA
LYRICS: JANNE HIETALA

SCREAM INSIDE MY HEAD GOES UNNOTICED
BUT DON'T YOU TREAD ON MY RIGHTS
DESPITE THE LACK OF VITAL SIGNS

DARK
TOO DARK TO SEE ALL AROUND ME
THEY KNOW I'M LOST BUT NOT ALONE
STRAYING IN THE DEEP UNKNOWN

IS THERE ANYONE TO SAVE ME FROM WHAT I'VE BECOME?
AND THEN THE SILENCE... SILENCE SEEMS SO LOUD

TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY
THEY SAY: "WAIT FOR THE SIGN - DON'T WORRY"
RED SWALLOWS THE SKY
VOICE DRIFTING AWAY
IN THE END I GIVE ALL FOR THE GLORY
BRING ME BACK TO LIFE

BEAST UNDER YOUR BED BREAKS THE SILENCE
NOW WHO DO YOU PRAY WHEN THINGS GO WRONG?
WHEN THERE'S A DEVIL AT YOUR DOOR

HARD
TOO HARD TO BREATH
EMPTY INFINITY
THERE IS NO ESCAPE
NO PLACE TO HIDE
NO ONE FIGHTING ON YOUR SIDE

HEAR ME BEGGING FOR
SEE ME CRAWLING FOR
AND THEN THE SILENCE... SILENCE SEEMS SO LOUD

TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY
THEY SAY: "WAIT FOR THE SIGN - DON'T WORRY"
RED SWALLOWS THE SKY
VOICE DRIFTING AWAY
IN THE END I GIVE ALL FOR THE GLORY
BRING ME BACK TO LIFE

NO ONE HEARS ME
NO ONE SEES ME
AND THEN THE SILENCE... SILENCE SEEMS SO LOUD

TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY
THEY SAY: "WAIT FOR THE SIGN - DON'T WORRY"
RED SWALLOWS THE SKY
VOICE DRIFTING AWAY
IN THE END I GIVE ALL FOR THE GLORY
BRING ME BACK TO LIFE
