Lyrics:

1. Anima Nera / 2:27

I like to bury myself in pain
You know what I mean
I like to suffocate in all my memories
Until I cannot breathe

So I can taste again
How hard it is
To have a frozen heart inside my chest
That only beats but doesn’t feel

The walls inside the room are closing in
I cannot see a door
A little sparkle of light
I cannot see any hope

I wonder
Is it all my fault?
Is it because of me?
Is it because I never cared enough?
And now I pay for this

Cosa ne rimane della mia anima nera?
Anima nera, anima nera, anima nera
Cosa ne rimane della mia anima nera?
Anima nera, anima nera, anima nera
Cosa ne rimane della mia anima nera?
Anima nera, anima nera, anima nera
Cosa ne rimane della mia anima nera?
Anima nera, anima nera, anima nera

2. Sword of Anger / 3:55

[Intro]
We are the anima

Ride

We came rising from the dark
We’ve been riding for so long (It’s coming)
Many things to overcome
Always learning from our past
Bringing vengeance from the gods
Never lost our way

We don’t heed you
The sword of anger will cut in the deep
Still moving alone

We feel no pain

We don’t heed you
Beyond the blackness we find harmony
Never belong

Always chained to the sorrow
Never hide behind remorse
Silent ghosts of what once was
Rising from the shadow
We’ve crossed to the other side
And never lost our way

We don’t heed you
The sword of anger will cut in the deep
Still moving alone

We feel no pain

We don’t heed you
Beyond the blackness we find harmony
Never belong

Still running alone
With no interest in what you say
To free ourselves from the boundaries
Let’s breathe reeling into the darkness
Swimming past all the hatred
Overcoming our failures
Beyond the surface
We dig in the deep
There’s more to us than
you will never see

More

Feel no pain
The sword of anger will cut in the deep
Still moving alone

We feel no pain
We don’t heed you
Beyond the blackness
We’ll find harmony
Never lost our way

We don’t heed you
The sword of anger
Will cut in the deep
Still moving alone
We feel no pain
We don’t heed you

Beyond the blackness
We’ll find harmony
Never belong

3. Reckless / 3:05

Tonight it’s coming down
To hell with all the innocence
The signs are all around.

I’ve had enough
Wasted too much time
Afraid to cross the line
Enough with alibis.

You make me, make me reckless
You make me reckless
You make me, make me reckless

DESTROY!

Let’s wreck it down
Let’s be wild and get reckless!

NOW DESTROY!

Keep the madness
Endless.
Give me danger along the ride.

UNAFRAID TO SELF DESTROY

Things won’t be slowing down
I’m high enough on bitterness
The fire fills my eyes,

NOT AFRAID

I have never learnt to compromise
I need to feel alive
Enough with alibis.

FEEL ALIVE

You make me, make me reckless
You make me reckless
You make me, make me reckless

DESTROY!

Let’s wreck it down
Let’s be wild and get reckless!

NOW DESTROY!

Keep the madness
Endless.
Give me danger along the ride.

You make me reckless

Let’s wreck it down
Let’s be wild and get reckless!

NOW DESTROY!

Keep the madness
Endless.
Give me danger along the ride.

SMASH!

And break this down
Let’s be wild and get reckless

DESTROY!

Keep the madness
Endless.
Give me danger along the ride.

UNAFRAID TO SELF DESTROY

4. Layers of Time / 4:08

LAYERS
LAYERS OF TIME
LAYERS
LAYERS OF TIME
I live the life I left behind
A story born of scars and strifes
My heart is blind and frozen
I’m among snakes
I’m well disguised
Healers and dealers of this time
The poison enters every night
Well disguised
Victims of time
We take our chance again
Our road is paved with pain
The past we can’t rewind
Building this life
Still trapped inside
I think I’ve lost the storyline
Forever hurt and broken
I swear I’ll get out alive
Burning the bridges built behind
My life’s reloading every night
Out alive
Victims of time
We take our chance again
Our road is paved with pain
The past we can’t rewind
Blaze
Twisting
Turning
Through the baptism of fire
Burning
Angels falling
Through the spiral of time
Twisting
Turning
Through the baptism of fire
Burning
Angels falling
Through the spiral of time
Twisting
Turning
Through the baptism of fire
Burning
Angels falling
Through the spiral of time
Twisting
Turning
Through the baptism of fire
Burning
Angels falling
Through the spiral of time
Through layers of time
We’ll live again
Forget the past
We’ll be alright
Victims of time
We take our chance again
The road is paved with pain
Keep walking
We’ll find the way
LAYERS
LAYERS OF TIME
LAYERS
LAYERS OF TIME

5. Apocalypse / 4:17

While you pray
We don’t care

While you pray

Apocalypse it’s going down
This time and I’m surprisingly alive
We’ve been condemned again
Guilty of our innocence
Do you preach about the revelation?
So far from evolution

You’re far from the solution

While you pray
We start a revolution
You don’t care
And celebrate your lies
While you pray
You’re far from absolution
We don’t care
We leave it all behind

We don’t care

Tell me all about your life
Looking at the sand gliding down
Through the hourglass
Here we are again
We know only time will tell
Let the fate decide right here
Staring in each other’s eyes
Trusting in each other’s lies
You’re far from the solution

While you pray
We start a revolution
You don’t care
And celebrate your lies
While you pray
You’re far from absolution
We don’t care
We leave it all behind

While you pray
We start a revolution
You don’t care
And celebrate your lies
While you pray
You’re far from absolution
We don’t care
We leave it all behind

6. Now or Never / 4:41

Walk me out of here
Take me away

I made my way back to the living
When I was already dead
I can’t believe this is for real
I felt my heart skip a beat
My vision was so unclear
As I slowly revealed myself

Now or never
The time is right
Out of your shelter
Crawl back to life

Walk me out of here
Take me away

The beast is still unleashed
I’m hating all of this
I don’t know what is wrong with me
I know I will take the blame
I left the good times in the past
And maybe I’m already dead

Now or never
The time is right
Out of your shelter
Crawl back to life

Walk me out of here
Take me away

I won’t surrender
To a corrupted soul
Under bloody flags
We march in pain
Through the turmoil
Hold the flame
There’s no mercy for the innocent

Now or never
The time is right
Now or never
We are not down on our knees
We’re close to victory

Walk me out of here
Take me away

Now

7. Under the Surface / 4:14

Beneath the gloss
There is no escape
You’re looking sharp
But the smile is fake
There’s much more
That hides behind
All your senses are compelled to lie

Solitary warm embrace
That keeps me here confined
I search for comfort deep inside
And I don’t want to get away
I could be wrong but I don’t care
I’m imprisoned deep
Living in isolation from the world

Demise
But I feel fine

Everything feels perfect
When you’re spinning lies
Deceiving Yourself
But deep under the surface
The battle comes alive
Don’t want to fight
Everything’s collapsing
But you don’t seem to care
Disown
Illusions and emotions are for sale

Life
There is no point

Loneliness won’t let me go
And crawls beneath my skin
It’s moving in
The filtered world I’m living in
Is not as perfect as I think
It all gets old within a week
But I just don’t care
Alone
Living in isolation from the world

Demise
And I feel fine

Everything feels perfect
When you’re spinning lies
But deep under the surface
The battle comes alive
Everything’s collapsing
But you don’t seem to care
Disown
Illusions and emotions are for sale

Life

Beneath the gloss
There is no escape
You’re looking sharp
But the smile is fake
There’s much more
That hides behind
All your senses are compelled to lie

Everything feels perfect
When you’re spinning lies
But deep under the surface
The battle comes alive
Everything’s collapsing
But you don’t seem to care
Disolve
Illusions and emotions are for sale

Everything feels perfect
The culprit sleeps inside
But deep under the surface
Your weakness comes alive

Everything’s collapsing

You never stood a chance

So keep on burying your head in the sand

Life
There is no point
There’s much more
That hides behind
All your senses are compelled to lie

8. Veneficium / 6:11

Nova vis ad Diem novum nascitur
Penitus veneficium versatum revincitur
Nova vis ad Diem novum nascitur
Penitus veneficium versatum revincitur
Nova vis ad Diem novum nascitur
Penitus veneficium versatum revincitur

I’m un moving like a stone
This silence screams so cold
I wish I was so far from here
But now
I think we need to talk
Sit right in front of me
The dream we had has come to an end

I would destroy my own life
To consume your soul and smile
But I’m locked into your world again

Here I come
To show you all the wounds inside my heart
But it’s all in vain
Here I come
I know that it will never be the same

Now
I need to be alone
I spin out of control
We’re trapped inside the dream again
Look now what we have become
You’re like a parasite
Infecting me until the end

There was a time
We looked down from the clouds
We climbed sky high
Thought that we would never fall
How come you didn’t even try?
Was it harder to fight than to let me go?

Here I come
To show you all the wounds inside my heart
But it’s all in vain
Here I come
I know that it will never be the same

Nova vis ad Diem novum nascitur
(Inside of you)
Penitus veneficium versatum revincitur
Nova vis ad Diem novum nascitur
Penitus veneficium versatum revincitur

Here

I want to start again
Keep learning day by day
Forget the fear and feel free at last
‘Cause now
I’m closer to the edge
I’m afraid to see what I became
I know that it will never be the same
Here I come
Knowing I will never be the same

Nova vis ad Diem novum nascitur
Penitus veneficium versatum revincitur
Nova vis ad Diem novum nascitur
Penitus veneficium versatum revincitur

9. The End Is All I Can See / 4:15

I am just realizing
This pain is almost like salvation
Keeps coming back to me
Protects me from the voice of madness

Clean away my sins
‘Cause I want to be with you
Now please answer my prayers
‘Cause the end is all I can see

Twisting and turning anxiety moves in
It’s coiling inside me
The evil within
Stinging and burning, consumes me with guilt
It plays with my senses then crawls out of me

Clean away my sins
‘Cause I want to be with you
Now please answer my prayers
‘Cause the end is all I can see

No one answered my prayers
There is nothing left here for me

Now
You need to burn it down
Let’s give it all an end
I’m caught inside a maze
I need to get out of this
Trapped inside
A prison in disguise
I keep running around in circles
Stuck on repeat again

Clean away my sins
‘Cause I want to be with you
Now please answer my prayers
‘Cause the end is all I can see

Clean away my sins
‘Cause I want to be with you (Down)
Now please answer my prayers (Burn it down)
‘Cause the end is all I can see (Down)

10. Save Me / 4:36

Save me from myself
I can’t help it, I’m breaking down.
Save me from myself
I could use your faith right now.

My skin is crawling
And feel this pressure
Rushing from the inside out
I am lost right now.

My mind is racing
Inside I’m cursing
Burning in my darkest thoughts again.

So I keep asking myself
(Will I)
Will I be strong enough to face this mess?
(So I)
Stand here begging for help!
(We are)
The only humans walking through this hell.

Save me from myself
I could use you faith, I’m breaking down

Depressed and hopeless.
And held in despair
Don’t know how to find a way to release myself.

I’m going crazy!
So close to getting out!
Lies beneath, feels like it used to be.

So I keep asking myself.
(Will I)
Will I be strong enough to face this mess?
(So I)
Stand here begging for help.
(We are)
The only humans walking through this hell

And what remains is the shadow of my past.
I look in the mirror and hate what I see.
I don’t recognise my face anymore
And wonder where all of my dreams are gone.
Feeling lost and empty
I know I can’t turn back time,
But I just don’t want to give up.
I can’t give up.

Save me from myself.
I could use you faith, I’m breaking down.

So I keep asking myself
(Will I)
Will I be strong enough to face this mess?
(So I)
Stand here begging for help.
(We are)
The only humans walking through this hell.

11. Black Anima / 3:23

The calm before the storm
Clouds are moving in anticipation
I’m longing for the rain to wash it all away
Slowly I am losing control
Losing control

What’s on the other side of the clouds?

It’s time to let go
Release all control
Destroy everything
Rebuild it again
Let go

Control
Delete everything
Destroy
Erase and rewind
Rebuild
Repeat
Go

Together we’ll erase the suffering
Smash
Disarray

Our world is afraid and falling
Pain
We are chasing the ghost that’s trapped inside

I can see your anima

Together we’ll erase the suffering
Smash
Disarray
Our world is afraid and falling
Pain
We are chasing the ghost that’s trapped inside
You and me against the world
Break
When you’re feeling all hope is lost
Smash
You are not alone in a world of disarray
Disarray
All the walls that keep us separated
Chaos
We will break them all and reunite
Rise
And when I’ll be gone you’ll keep our legacy alive
