Track Name: War of the Titan (Demo)
Heavy smoke
In the air
Explosions are the only things we hear
Fear is all I can feel
My eyes are filled with tears
My brothers are falling but I’m still standing and
I don’t know how long wills this stand
I see their dead faces looking up at me
I wish I could get out of this hell

Say goodbye, Bid Farewell
As they might not come back tonight
Say goodbye, Bid Farewell
As they might not come back tonight

This is war
War, war, war, war, war, war, war
Track Name: Heaven's Collapse (Demo)
This World has succumbed to the lies/Truth is always coming second
It whips me to the face every time/I dare to think about it
Religion has corrupted our minds/As much as drugs and violence
We all forgot how to be kind/Losing ourselves in decadence

So be it drench yourself in filth and throw your pride into the wind
We’ll all be saints on the other side
Trading pleasure against pain, seeing life as only made for sin
Keeping your human weaknesses out of sight

And we let our souls cry

And whenever we can’t win a fight, we spread our arms towards the sky
And implore the angels to save us

As we hear our own plea echo in the air, we realize the truth that we feared
The divine ones left us to die

They saw us wasting the gift of life, disgusted of seeing tainted souls pass
And under their weight making heavens collapse

We should have seen the signs, the excess that brought our decline
But now it’s too late for forgiveness

As the sun runs dry and the clouds fall apart

Saint Peter closed the gates/We all sealed our own fates
With the choices we made/We caused the heavens to fade
What if life was all we had/Our existence just a fad
Will we take the time to react/As our world is under attack?

Our afterlife is/ Happening right now
Our God is not here/To make it all right
If we want things to change/We got to dirty our hands
Before it’s all too late/But it’s already

All too late/No escape
No wonder/Who’s to blame
Take a stand/No cover
Pay the price/Together
Don’t hide behind/Your book
For all the rules/You broke
We’ll be the ones to judge ourselves
When it all comes to an end

We feel the fall
We lost our way
What made us go astray?

The suffering we carry/Trying to find a release
In the bottom of a bottle/Or from the tip of a needle
Numbness we can’t shake off/Disappointed in ourselves
Hoping a better world awaits/But knowing this fantasy can never be
And from the barrel of a gun/Or from the eyes of a child
We get the surge that we need/To keep hope alive
Cause if there’s one thing/We can all be sure of
Is that if we don’t save ourselves/No one will

And still it remains/The reflex not to die

So when I feel there’s no answer, I turn my eyes towards my neighbour
And see that we can find a way

And when I fear we can’t make a change, I know in my heart that hope remains
Cause if we don’t try we’ll never know

I know the journey will be hard, that many times I will want to cry
But I can count on you to be my ally

Heaven exists/It’s in our footsteps
And if we make a change/We’ll make it happen
Don’t wait for another life/Cherish the one you have today
And if a problem happens to come/We will all solve it as one
Track Name: Dawn of Annihilation (Demo)
No sleep and cold sweat in your back/Their aura is poison
All your body feeling under attack/No movement no diction
Black spots in the corners of your eyes/Something’s moving in the dark
Deep beneath your sheets a new evil lays/Tonight the Hellhounds bark

Waken by the light/Prepare for the fight
The four horsemen are waiting/Apocalypse is coming

They will bathe in the smell of fear that you bring
Count your blessings and get the fuck away from here
They will find you wherever you think you can hide
The dark crows follow every single lost soul
Don’t think you can fight for your life
Sink or swim is the only option now
What a pity you don’t want to die before you time
You’re just another guest in line

Blazing fire scrapping your skin
Fearless warriors drowning in sin
Pray no god there’s no retreating
Prey you are for them to be hunting

Save your breath don’t ask them for pity
Because they relish at seeing you at their mercy
They have been created to bring out destruction
And only they know the weight of your actions
Flee, cry, and implore their pardon
They have no ears react to submission
War, Pestilence, Famine and Death
Sent by God, they are the weapons of Faith

Rising from the grave

You’re gasping/Trying breathing
But there’s no air incoming
Sulphur in your nostrils
Burning you inside out
You can hear the holy trumpets
Echo in the distance
As you see the clock of doom ticking

Picture your worst nightmares
Coming to life before your eyes
Feeling the cold hands of fear
Taking hold of you
Reciting your prayers
To end all your terrors

Save me/Help me
All your pleading turns to ash in your mouth
Your tears/Your eyes
Dry and turn to stone

You keep telling yourself that you don’t deserve all the pain
They’re giving you
But look deep inside

All the lives that you’ve hurt
All the people you’ve scarred
All the destruction you’ve brought in your path

All the good you could have done
Erased by your actions
Your sins are coming back
To give you what you deserve

Your life held by a thread/For the mistakes you made
See the evil you have caused right before your eyes
Waiting to be purified/For every time you’ve lied
You won’t know what it’s like to be redeemed

In the darkest corners of your mind
Can’t you see what you’ve done?
There’s no turning back
Come and face your demons

Dignity/Forget it
Honour/You never had it
Conscience/You could have thought about that before
On your/way to Hell
Have your last Farewell
You won’t be missed

Tick, tick, tick goes the clock of doom
Its purpose will be fulfilled pretty soon
Step by step come join the faction
Playing the song of annihilation
Every single one of the circles
Make Nine places you can call your homes

Buried down in a shallow grave
Getting fucked by Satan for the rest of your days
No crying families to put roses on it
But plenty of people today feeling sick
The only thoughts towards you
Will be filled by disgust and hatred
Your eternity in sight
With no fucking possibility to touch the light

Sucks to be you

Save me/Help me
All your pleading turns to ash in your mouth
Your tears/Your eyes
Dry and turn to stone

This is what could happen/If you don’t wake up
You can make a difference/So start changing up
Our final advice/Is not to do this out of fear but out of fucking empathy

You are human being/Start acting like it
Instead of being a piece of shit

And as a new day rises so do your possibilities
It’s your choice to make
No one will pay the price of your mistake
Start asking yourself/Is it worth it?
Track Name: March of the Titans
Our tale began on this very planet millennia ago
Legends spoke of our exploits and our names were known by all
We provoked the curiosity and the fear in every soul
Before our own descendants brought us to our mighty fall

We were the Titans

Yeah come on

We were the kings, the masters of everything that was
We ruled over Fate, Destiny and Demise
Before mankind put its prints on this land
It was a world only our kin could command

Before we were reduced to crawl deep, in Tartarus
We were creators of Gods, destroyers of earths
The four elements were only mere servants
And our power was only matched by our decadence

No pity was shown/No love was given
Our cruelty earned us/Our title of fallen
And now we ache/Without dying
We learned the meaning of suffering
But our hour is coming near
Our second chance is finally here

You’ll see the ground shake/You’ll feel the earth quake
The seas will engulf you and dry your young
As the sun burns your skin and your tongues

Titans we will soon march/Destroy our chains
Our feet will stomp/Over your heads
We’ll bring you all to your knees
The Gods are dead/Titans remains

Titans we will soon march/Destroy our chains
Our feet will stomp/Over your heads
For a new order to be set
The previous one has to die

We will bring down what you made (What you made)
And take back what was ours (What was ours)
There will be no escape (No escape)
The blood will be the only thing that you’ll see

The sky will fall in pieces
The earth will crumble over your heads
There will be no escape from it
Stop praying start worshiping

There will be no escape for you
You will not be able to leave
There will be one name to remember
It’s the name of the Titans

The pagan Gods we called/Our sons and daughters
Have met with an end worse than ours
They have been forgotten and we are prisoners
But we’ll soon break our shackles/To be free conquerors
Look at the world you destroyed/None of you is worth it
All the things you’ve been given/And you threw it all away

You will drown/In your own shame
We are the fall/That you deserve

We will see you burn

The sky will fall
The sky will fall

We are menace you can’t fight against
We are stronger, better than you will ever be
We will rise again/So run if you can
You’ll feel the blow our power will spread
Your screams will fuel our mission
Your tears will enhance our passion
Your time as passed/Our time as come
Witness how easily your world is undone

Dry your tears/Accept your fate
Dry your tears/Accept your fate
Dry your tears/Accept your fate
So dry your tears/Accept your fate
Your end is near/Our beginning is to set
A new order/On you
Track Name: No Surrender (Demo)
