Verse 1: Lurking deep down below Silently biding his time Old as man himself Certain as death to life A dark passenger Tearing from the inside A ghastly companion That promises destruction Chorus: They say every once in a while If you visit his dark domain The ageless one will resurface And you will trigger your own demise Demise! [Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren] [Solo: Markus Hiltunen] Verse 2: Preying on the susceptible Delusive, fragile mind Unaware of a presence Set out to consume A nightly visitor In your darkest of dreams Prompting to repeat Man's old mistakes Chorus: They say every once in a while If you visit his dark domain The ageless one will resurface And you will trigger your own demise Verse 3: Releasing your inner being, Breaking down your aggressive inhibitions

Verse 1: Predators of peace A system dependant on war Exploiters of conflict Yearning for control A greedy cause Disguised as good will Painting a facade Deception your ultimate thrill Pre-chorus: Submission through blackmail Control by illusion Chorus: National manipulator Spreading influence Dividing oppressor Gaining governance [Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren] Verse 2: Firing first, thinking after Tomorrows problems not your own Oblivious to consequence Your ignorance cannot be condoned Pre-chorus: Submission through blackmail Control by illusion Chorus: National manipulator Spreading influence Dividing oppressor Gaining governance Verse 3: Total dominance not enough Continuing power-abuse Everyone will turn on you You'll find yourself a recluse Verse 4: Domination won't last long You're digging your own grave Better start counting your days For I won't be this government's slave! [Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren]

Verse 1: Born in an age when man hates nature Conscience overcome by greed One of a species determined to lay waste On dying earth we feed Caught in man's short sighted ways Unwilling to accept change Torn by our own arrogance A race that's gone deranged Chorus: What will happen to a species, Incapable of foresight? Why can't we just live and let live? How can we justify, Our present existence, When we leave a shattered future tense? Verse 2: Alive in a world, dark by our misdeeds Where we wander in our sleep Left in a spiral of destruction On a planet, abused and mistreated Died in an age when time ceased to exist Gaia's face grows cold Felt her twist in torment As the last resistance broke Chorus: What will happen to a species, Incapable of foresight? Why can't we just live and let live? How can we justify, Our present existence, When we leave a shattered future tense? [Instrumental] [Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren] [Verse 3] For death by his own hand Humanity is marked Of this global genocide Each man plays a part [Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren] Chorus: What will happen to a species, Incapable of foresight? Why can't we just live and let live? How can we justify, Our present existence, When we leave a shattered future tense?

Verse 1: Months and years have passed me by Been waiting far too long Patiently preparing, biding my time This time things can't go wrong Deep inside a feeling stirs The moment is at hand Obsessively driven by vengeance and fear It's time to make a stand Chorus: Strike hard! Strike, fast! Verse 2: Flickering lights before your eyes Ears ringing with noise Mayhem piercing through your brain You're left without a choice Sudden silence, quick release The calm before the storm Catch your breath before it's gone And thrash to Paranorm! Chorus: Strike hard! Strike, fast! [Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren]

Verse 1: Pointless virtues, Urged by white-clad men Lying and cheating Over and over again Hollow promises False sense of safety Trusting a god To lead you to your destiny Chorus: Look at life for what it is Seeing through their lies Believe in nothing, trust in no one Rip the veil of disguise Indoctrination, Your senses overthrown It's up to you to form your own fate In the end, we're all alone Verse 2: Ancient writings Designed to lead astray Ambiguous fables Misread along the way Declared divinity Determined for political gain Two-faced cross Twisting the truth to sustain Chorus: Look at life for what it is Seeing through their lies Believe in nothing, trust in no one Rip the veil of disguise Indoctrination, Your senses overthrown It's up to you to form your own fate In the end, we're all alone [Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren] Verse 3: Manipulating bastards Sanctimonious fools What's the point in believing If you can't adapt to your own rules? Brain-dead obedience Your will's not your own If you trust the contradictions Spewed from a papal throne! Verse 4: Pointless virtues, Urged by white-clad men Lying and cheating Over and over again Hollow promises False sense of safety Trusting a god To lead you to your destiny Chorus: Look at life for what it is Seeing through their lies Believe in nothing, trust in no one Rip the veil of disguise Indoctrination, Your senses overthrown It's up to you to form your own fate In the end, we're all alone

Atmospheres 06:17
Verse 1: Stifled by reality Transparent actuality Drowning in vacuous seas Projected ambiguity Surrounding conspiracy Unconditional ambivalence Chorus: Erratic fantasy unfolds Atmospheres apart Fictitious paradigm unveiled In an abstruse truth Verse 2: Shifted objectivity Sheltering fantasy Confined within the clouds Sentient instability Cerebral anarchy Witnessing pandemonium's rise Chorus: Erratic fantasy unfolds Atmospheres apart Fictitious paradigm unveiled In an abstruse truth Chorus 2: But I will break The boundaries of space Pierce the ice, crack the surface And embrace the universe [Instrumental] [Solo: Fredrik Kjellgren] [Repeat Chorus and Chorus 2] [Instrumental outro]
