Track Name: FasterFASTER
Sun
shine on me today
I deserve it
you know it
work
without respite
tonight I'll be
the greatest star yet
burn a hole into your heart
I'll start a fire
right now right here

Free
of enemies
and ladies
without a smile
rise
this franchise
of greatness grander than all space
a dawn of new age
the world will lay it's arms around me

Road
will yield me loads
of super-sweet catastrophes
try
is for the weak and shy
I do or die trying
this is my night
I'll rise above it all
who needs the sun I'll just become one

I'll outshine the starlit sky
I'll cover up the moonlight
the city looks so dark tonight
'cause I'll be brighter and brighter
Track Name: Gullkálfurinn
Yrtu á mig og allt sem ég segi verður að gulli
handfjötluð egg og allt annað sem þig dreymir

Hér færðu allt sem hugurinn girnist
njóttu náðar minnar áður en allt saman firnist

Lestu minna og minna og hugur þinn loks verður frjáls
hamingj'í heimsku og þjóðin hittir þig til hálfs

Enga eymd hér, enga eymd - þið hafið það fínt
gleymið öllu, gleymið öllu - það er mjög brýnt

Breyðið yfir gullgálfinn og bíttið því jafnt á milli
málaliðanna og þeirra sem buðu í þetta gilli

Brostu og bentu bara á þann
sem þér líklegastur til að koma þeim öllum í bann

Því þeir hafa undirbúið leikritið sem þú hér sérð
"við lékum öll hlutverk" þeir segja, "fannst þér það ekki vel gert?"

Enga eymd hér, enga eymd - þið hafið það fínt
gleymið öllu, gleymið öllu - það er mjög brýnt
Track Name: Kings & Queens
Truth
only words spoken
only one act broken
and I'm sure you don't mind
truth
doesn't get you anywhere
won't make them care
no matter what you find

'Cause kings and queens
they do exactly what they feel
they don't need to kneel
to someone like you and me

Right
leads you to the left sight
leads you to the wrong fight
don't dare to tell them that
right
the only thing you can do
they've divided and conquered you
a minor inconvenience too

'Cause kings and queens
they do exactly what they feel
they don't need to kneel
to someone like you and me

Wrong
you always get it wrong
no matter how you try to get along
you'll always loose
wrong
no matter how right it feels
someone always disagrees
with your point of view

'Cause kings and queens
they do exactly what they feel
they don't need to kneel
to someone like you and me
Track Name: Ignus
I'm all right, I'm ok I'm better than that x4

When I see
society 'round me
I just want to flee inside of me
'cause all I see's the same
all grown up and tame
'sponsibility and pain
my whole world is crumbling all around me
I just want to be free

So, I'm all right I'm okey
I'm all right, I'm ok, I'm better than that x4

So why won't you burn
burn burn
burn burn burn burn burn
burn
burn burn
burn burn burn burn
it all too the ground

I'm all right, I'm ok, I'm better than that x4

I act mature
though I don't see it's allure
I just want some joy in my life
but all I do is strife
to hell with society
I'll escape from obscurity
fuck all conventions and all it's impurity
got my own life to live

So I'm all right I'm okey
*Rant*
Track Name: Burned Ashes
Leave behind a scorched earth
leave nothing but ruins and dust
sow salt into the open wounds
what we have they can't have too

Build my pyre high
burn away the sky
and I'll find my way again

Ashes and dust nothing but
a plain with no grain except the sands
sunshine will boil and burn
frostburn will wait it's turn

Build my pyre high
burn away the sky
and I'll find my way again

Faces peeled in slanted smiles
one-eyed wonder no wonder why
withered animals on the road
char-coaled carcass the only note

Build my pyre high
burn away the sky
and I'll find my way again
Track Name: I'm the Insane
Gotta say I'm quite bored, babe
All you ever do is to make me lust for someone else than you
can't say that I'd like to, babe
It's a waste of time the way your hips just grind and grind

'Cause I'm the insane one
I've lost my mind
I'm the insane one
but I know what I want

Body blows won't do, babe
bet that's all you do and the boys come running after you
need a little bit more, babe
Who cares for skin and flesh when the rest is such a complete mess

'Cause I'm the insane one
I've lost my mind
I'm the insane one
but I know what I want

Think you got what it takes, babe
I'm sure you'll do just fine, even without half a mind
Whatever you do, babe
never let those lips do anything more than your hips

'Cause I'm the insane one
I've lost my mind
I'm the insane one
but I know what I want

Don't believe you understood, babe
I'll try to make it plain, I wouldn't like to see you again
Others might adore you, babe
by powers vested in my I'd rather be lonely and free

'Cause I'm the insane one
I've lost my mind
I'm the insane one
but I know what I want

I'm the insane one
I've lost my mind
I'm the insane one
but I know what I want
Track Name: Conjured Kingdoms
Mind blown
body torn
leave bits and pieces of my heart, lying around
be a dear baby and guess what I found

Imagine
you're the right bit for me
yearn for nothing but a half-a-heart and a kitsch art and a choke
the need for more, don't let be like before
Track Name: And the Crowd Goes Wild
Linger long enough for an end
can't just begin
no last stand
a stand-off's all that's really needed
I've decreed it
can't just feel it won't you
come along with me

Finally found ways to tie up all the strings
what fate brings
off all things
you a willing thrall to my call
won't you just fall
on your knees and crawl for me baby
come along with me

Fade, fade away x7

Compared to a desert
this is wine
dry divine
the last crime
oh trust is all demands and so am I
soul-fly
sucking you dry
won't you come along with me

Fade, fade away x7
