Track Name: The Forest of Men
Human beings are seen as grains of sand
By the great constellation of planets
They’re living and breathing for no reasons
They die in total ignorance
But have the arrogance to despise everything

I don’t wanna be part of these men
I try to move far away from them
I don’t wanna be part of these men
I don’t belong to them

The perfect mix
Between love and pain
Takes ‘em to hell
To have killed each other

I don’t wanna be part of these men
I try to move far away from them
I don’t wanna be part of these men
I don’t belong to them

The forest of men is the purest place
For everyone’s secrets
A lot of people try to delete their past
Instead of reconciling past and present
Without thinking about the future

I don’t wanna be part of these men
I try to move far away from them
I don’t wanna be part of these men
I don’t belong to them
Track Name: Beware the Rat King
Hangin’ out as usual at night
Something curious draws my attention
Some kind of children creeping in the streets
Ready to rob anyone

Unsociable
Dangerous games
Are they controlled?
I need to know
Bad omen
How to survive?
In this life
With no pain

The city’s crawling with rats
Children are missing
Sewer’s dictatorship
‘Cause the rat king is right there

Making my own inquiry
I succeed to approach one of the children
He’s a stranger to civilization
He shows me the frightening atrocity

Is he anxious?
To go back there
Again
Fear is his only
Enemy
The memories
Are haunting him

The city’s crawling with rats
Children are missing
Sewer’s dictatorship
‘Cause the rat king is right there

Submission at its height
Raised like cattle
Forced to obey to this humanoid
Deliverance is near my friends

Two ferocious
Crocodiles
Used as bodyguards
Time to conclude
A new hope is born
This is the end of
The rat king’s reign

The city’s crawling with rats
Children are missing
Sewer’s dictatorship
‘Cause the rat king is done
Track Name: Shifted
I feel I’m shifting from human beings
Marginality is my way of life
Anger invades me as I see all this chaos coming
Which would mean the fall of society

Shifted! I don’t accept the deeds of my people
Shifted! Madness takes possession of myself

I’ve no fear to do everything I’m thinking of
To do something unlikely when you least expect it
It’s my way to live and to be special
Inside this merciless and selfish world

Shifted! I’m such a loner because of what people have become
Shifted! My brain is drowning into my soul and my dreams

I get my sanity back and everything is clear now
We can only find wisdom deep in ourselves
But we can’t stay alone for too long
I’m feeling closer to the earth than ever before
Track Name: Majora Family
Raised in a strange family
The boy has learned to walk early
Because he is what we call
A gifted child
Asked by his parents to become
A serial killer
But he doesn’t want to follow
This cruel path

The world’s domination
This is what their goal is
The world’s domination
This is what their role is

Slavery
Manipulation
Extinction
Power
Misanthropy
Fate

At the dawn of his fifteenth birthday
He goes away to see world
What he had seen was shocking
Manipulated by evil
His heart is becoming black
It’s full of sadness and melancholy
Memories of his childhood

The world’s domination
This is what their goal is
The world’s domination
This is what their role is

Slavery
Manipulation
Extinction
Power
Misanthropy
Fate

From now on humanity is in danger
‘Cause of the sheer power of this group
Their role is to reduce the population
By lying to the people

To destroy the life of millions
By enslaving them
To be the ultimate control over earth
This is the destiny of the child
Cursed by fate
Because of the majora family

From now on humanity is in danger
‘Cause of the sheer power of this group
Their role is to reduce the population
By lying to the people

To destroy the life of millions
By enslaving them
To be the ultimate control over earth
This is the destiny of the child
Cursed by fate
Because of the majora family
Track Name: Gloom at its Finest
I don’t know what happened to me?
I see shadows and lights
I don’t think I’m on drugs
I hear creaking sounds
My brain orders to me to keep moving
In front of me
A door appear in the feeble light
This is insanity

Since I’ve bought this house
The beast is smiling when it sees my tears
This is the end of my life
As I know it

This place is reassuring
But there’s something I don’t understand
Gloom at its finest
I have nothing to fear
Because I am dreamin’ in darkness
Gloom at its finest

In the cellar of this house
I see terrifying visions
From the master of horror
Known as my brain
Maybe the loss of a loved one
Have an effect on me?
Ghosts of my past deaths
I need to face my nightmares

Since I’ve bought this house
The beast is smiling when it sees my tears
This is the end of my life
As I know it

This place is reassuring
But there’s something I don’t understand
Gloom at its finest
I have nothing to fear
Because I am dreamin’ in darkness
Gloom at its finest
Track Name: Scavenger of Human Sorrow
What pain will it take?
To satisfy
Your sick appetite
Go in for the kill

Always in sight, prey
The time always right, feast
Feed on the pain, taste
Sorrow made flesh, sweet

Live how you want
Just don't feed on me
If you doubt what I say
I will make you believe
Shallow are words
From those who starve
For a dream not their own to
Slash and scar

Big words small mind
Behind the pain you will find a scavenger
Of human sorrow
Scavenger

Abstract theory
The weapon of choice used by a scavenger
Of human sorrow
Scavenger

So you have traveled far
Across the sea
To spread your written brand
Of misery

Always in sight, prey
The time always right, feast
Feed on the pain, taste
Sorrow made flesh, sweet

Live how you want
Just don't feed on me
If you doubt what I say
I will make you believe
Shallow are words
From those who starve
For a dream not their own to
Slash and scar

Big words, small mind
Behind the pain you will find a scavenger
Of human sorrow
Scavenger

Abstract theory
The weapon of choice used by a scavenger
Of human sorrow
Scavenger
