Covenant: Sequencer (1996)

Feedback

I consume the wind that makes you cold
And drink the blood of the bleeding souls
To check your fear and hide the noise
Of the howling wolves that steals your voice.

I confuse your mind and feed your dreams
To read your thoughts and keep them safe
From harmful truth and the hopeful lies
Of the tempting demon that hurts your eyes.

I will protect you from your visions
To safe you from illusions,
I will protect you from ideals
To safe you from defeats.

I consume the wind that makes you bold
And suck the blood of the living souls
To make you numb and hide the noise
Of the howling wolves that is your voice.

I seduce your mind to fear your dreams
And read your thoughts to keep you blind
From harmful truth and the open skies
Of the outside world before your eyes.

I will protect you from your visions
To safe you from illusions,
I will protect you from ideals
To safe you from defeats.


Stalker

In transit you pass among the strangers of the world,
Paying tribute to the thief who stole away your shadow.
You look into the bedrock and listen to the bells,
Calling liquid lust, call for solid white.

I see the stalker in your face, the secrets on your skin.
I keep the wisdom that you need, the password that you want.
I feel the stalker in your mind, the fire in your veins.
No hope to be released.

I'm a multitude of travels to the other side.
Through the broken wall I saw your fellow man.
To the west of the horizon there is a bitter wind,
And if you try to sense the smell of your face.

For you found the keyhole but you lost your backbone.
No courage left to join the march of endless time.
You saw the sleep of habit on those who walk in trance
To their catatonic aimless lives.

I see the stalker in your face, the secrets on your skin.
I keep the wisdom that you need, the password that you want.
I feel the stalker in your mind, the fire in your veins.
No hope to be released.

So let them start the engine grinding mountain dust,
And reproduce your ego too much is not enough.
You dig holes through the earth to meet the king of worms,
To steal away his wisdom and learn to decompose.

You chant like fifty indians to charm the prince of eagles,
To learn the art of seeing and the tongue of the winds.
So don't you try to fool me for I watch your every move.
We are kindred spirits like two voices in the wild.

I see the stalker in your face, the secrets on your skin.
I keep the wisdom that you need, the password that you want.
I feel the stalker in your mind, the fire in your veins.
No hope to be released.


Figurehead

We wish so hard to be seen,
And pray at night to be heard,
And yet we have nothing to show,
But false words and broken dreams.

I'm the figurehead on the ship of fools,
A beacon for the liars in the dark.
I'm the first and the last, I claim this land.
I'm the lost and the hungry, I need this land.

The inescapable face of truth
Spins my head again.
Disturbingly unable to stand back,
I'm going down.

The undeniable sense of wonder
Kicks my head in.
Disturbingly unable to escape,
I dive to drown
I dive to drown...

We want so hard to be true,
And claim the right to be good,
And yet we never seem to know,
How to reach the promised lands.

We work so hard to be wise,
And dream of light to be pure,
We need brighter death to grow,
The clean touch of virgin hands.

I'm the figurehead on the ship of fools,
A beacon for the liars in the dark.
I'm the first and the last, I claim this land.
I'm the lost and the hungry, I need this land.


Phoenix

I'm lost to the world, soon to be forgotten,
Living in the shadows, searching for belief.
But my anger is gone and the anvil is broken.
The pieces on the ground melting in the silence.

I keep my head above the surface,
Trying to breath, looking for land.
I keep an eye at the distant horizon,
Waiting for help, clutching the sky.

My fear is my cross, heavy on the shoulders,
Learning to be patient, burning to be free.
So my spirit is strong, but my body is broken.
My father in the fire dying for survival.

I keep my head above the surface,
Trying to breath, looking for land.
I keep an eye at the distant horizon,
Waiting for help, clutching the sky.


Slowmotion

Every instant second a suspension of forever,
A frail continuos sequence spanning over lives.
Blindfolded by stars we roam in our realm,
Striving to the very last, dwindling at the most.

Relentless marching in the waste we produce for living.
Tending to forget we are not the lasting kind.
Every day we die, we are slowly decomposing.
The steps we take upon the earth will be worn and lost.

As the moment elapsed,
We walked in slowmotion.
Denying the tide,
We'll find our devotion.

Possessed by our possessions we deny the present.
In the gallery of achievements we look upon the past.
And as the moment passed away, recalling the restraint,
Counting and weighing the amount of our breaths.

But strong in the knowledge of your lack of purpose,
By learning the fear and gaining our composure,
Content at the surface, descension to come,
Peace in aloneness although all will be lost.

As the moment elapsed,
We walked in slowmotion.
Awaiting the tide,
We'll lose our devotion.


Tabula Rasa

I feel too many affectious obstacles.
Water must be allowed to seek it's own level.
I don't seek to strive on others' expense,
And the expense is mine as they judge my ways.

I'm waiting for the rain to fall for days.
I'm longing for the flood to sweep this all away.

To grind the mountains to the level of the valleys,
To cut the trees to the level of the grass,
To asphalt the land in the name of equality...
No, let us grow in mutual respect and care.

I'm waiting for the rain to fall for days.
I'm longing for the flood to sweep this all away.

I will transgress the laws and change the orders,
To live within an environment of my choice.
So don't force your will or taste to rule over mine,
Don't stand in the shadow of my hammer.

I'm waiting for the rain to fall for days.
I'm longing for the flood to sweep this all away.


Storm

Drones behold the life that was given.
Be aware of the choices within your grasp.
Oppose the temptress who leaves you dry.
Redeem what was lost, unleash your will.

Hail the ones who take nothing for granted.
Praise the moments of the giving day.
Worship the sensation that passes by forever.
Conquer yourself for the kingdom of fury.

I wanna stand in the eye of the storm.
I wanna get struck by lightning.
I want our house to be set on fire -
For us to walk without shelter.

I seek no rest, I seek no shelter,
Where weak dwell in the shadow of decay.
I want to walk forever with the storm
Until I become the prey anyway.

I wanna stand in the eye of the storm.
I wanna get struck by lightning.
I want our house to be set on fire -
For us to walk without shelter.


Luminal

I try to rise in pride, I want to radiate,
Walk on water and ride the light.
I try to break the chains, I want to penetrate,
Cross the borders and drink the oceans.

I need to burn my fuel, I want to detonate,
Melt the sun and drain the sources.
I need to waste my strength, I want to escalate,
Turn the tide and conquer the stars.

Give velocity and gasoline,
Electricity and adrenalin:
I want to be superluminal!

I have to go ahead, I want to elevate,
Rise above and find the path,
I have to look beyond, I want to perforate,
Reach behind and take it back.

I must spread my wings, I want to scintillate,
Blind myself and break away,
I must be born again, I want to celebrate,
Stop the clock and never return...
...and never return.

Give velocity and gasoline,
Electricity and adrenalin:
I want to be superluminal!


Flux

No heaven will embrace you,
No harbour keeps you safe,
Your comrades will desert you.

No tower reaches heaven,
No fortress stands to last,
Your desires make you weak.

No science will be mastered,
No truth is absolute,
Your children won't lament you.

No wisdom can be trusted,
No glory lasts forever,
Your wishes won't be granted.

Like torches in the aeon flow,
Even suns flicker and die.
Forgotten as the ages grow,
Eternity is not for you.
