I am dreaming of a world With a nail bomb in your bed Or a bullet in your head The best way to thank you for your act I am slaving in a world With non-thinking hordes of chaos Worshipping the deceiver Some fucking fat white stingy believer Disparity of systems Trenches the equality While the earth is bound At a tremulous scene It must be a dream With no regret And no remorse Iron flows through veins Let the anger smash their bones Let the anarchy reign Anarchy I am dreaming of a world Where we rush through the gates Of those in charge Impale and cash the trophies Let everyone hear We go on rampage Run! Scum Scream while you still can Blood, decay What a harmony We stage protest Rogues become prey Mighty hands are crushing down You should have seen then come The luck has turned fuckers Ash fuels a rampaging vortex Our mob goes wild A dream comes true Fuckers Justice prevail Justice prevail The power in our hands Let the justice prevail The power in our hands Justice prevails History burn down in flames Age of Alteration Justice prevail

Pillar of purity A shining light It just implies Your innocence But I know your rage Your source of strength Corrupting you To infamy Despite oppression You pick the fight Not afraid to Start a war Fiery passion rages in rebellious hearts Symbol of our love You break the shackles of conformity Come, join, complete me Let's escape this nightmare Anxiety returned Not from the past But by your Furious gaze Affection blinding me Can't remember the last time You even smiled? Breaking your apathy You lash out at me I finally become Your enemy All empathy is lost Hate replaced rage Left is your hunger to Consume the world I've only seen what could have been Us against the world Living in a hopeless dream To cure my fractured soul But the only thing I see Is your disdain in your eyes The only thing I see Is your disdain For me Your disdain For me For me When you pulled me out Of the pit of my grief Never realized that I was your poison and not the cure I remember your last words Unable to comprehend Just let your dream die Just Let it die Just Let it die Let it die Just let it die Just let it die Just Let it die Just let it die Just let it die Just Let It die Let it die Let It die

Muted with brute force No matter of comprehension Ignored by the gentry And the so called holy one Creeping Leeching Watching power play corrupt Feasting Zesting Unbearable decadence Fearing Hesitating Is no option Thinking Plotting A revolution Sui Generis Generis Deep in our hearts We have known That we're the prey At this crime Rome will fall! In their ruin We shall reclaim Our right Our mind Rome will fall! Tired of being oppressed Kneeling to incestuous sleaze Commanded just to serve Authorized by their birthright Our refusal to obey Shall be expressed With chaotic rage With chaotic rage With chaotic rage Shackling Choking Their order bleeds us out Growing Spreading The spark to set the flames Arming Chanting A new hymn against authority Burning Razing The whore called Rome Deep in our hearts We have known That we're the prey At this crime Rome will fall In their ruin We shall reclaim Our right Our mind Rome will fall Under blood-red skies You can hear their screams No mercy was given No mercy will be given No, we will burn it down Till the day only ashes shall remain Rome has fallen Rome has fallen Rome Has Fallen Rome Has Fallen Rome Has Fallen Blood on our hands Now we know We're the predators And not the prey Rome has fallen In their ruin We have reclaimed Our right Our mind Rome has fallen

Let them drown in their hypocrisy Burning stars hitting their walls Flames gushing on half of the town Panic settles in her young heart Her eyes gazing toward her home afar Do you hear her screams Do you hear As fortifications begin to crumble Giant slabs are blocking her exhausting path She's hindered by her own hesitation While her hair keeps burning bright Kyriake won't make it home This fiery torture isn't what she sought A majestic phoenix Shall survive Shall survive Go! People Kyriake once has known Turned into ashen abominations Fiery heat is embracing her Inviting her to join their fold Choke on her ashes Choke on her ashes This nasty siege is complete Her entire town was ablaze No more survivors to be found And the embers are still glowing Kyriake won't make it home This fiery torture isn't what she sought A majestic phoenix Shall survive Shall survive Let this phoenix rise again Let Kyriake never suffer again Let this phoenix rise again Let them drown in their hypocrisy Kyriake didn't make it home Kyriake was burned alive Kyriake's skull was crushed Kyriake's legacy survived While her mother weeps about her loss Rumors were widely spread At her sorrow, they were gawking While she holds Kyriake's remains Phoenix rise again Kyriake rise again
