Track Name: Digital Aggression
Spies, moles, and sabotage
Did not put us down
Corporate maniacs
Are pushing brainheads hard
Mysterious programs to help and war
Eight by eight on a black squared board

Suddenly numerized,
Erased to the world
Lured by the sight of personal files
An empire rise
El Cid in a Meadow of light bright lines
Lord, this is something new

Intelligence to empires
Man to the machine
Virtual fall of the nations
Digital Aggression
Track Name: Flying Dutchman
It was 4 am when illusions crossed our bows. We were wondering what kind of joke it was. I had often heard from my fellows of those superstitions I started to be realistic.

While the ghost ship is coming
Somekind of delusion got aboard
Sailors start to shake looking for redemption
And I start to thrill

Out from the seas, living undead
Since the seventeenth century
Out of the seas, coming to you
You can now meet the legend of…

The Flying Dutchman

These were the last things I recall. I found myself in the middle of nowhere, not too late to find out that the purple ghost ship was running into me. It appeared in front of me!

The captain reared his ugly face
The sky turned green
I'll bring you the King, I said
But he would hear nothing, and yelled:
You're going down!

Out from the seas, living undead
Since the seventeenth century
Out of the seas, coming to you
You can now meet the legend of...

The Flying Dutchman
Track Name: Superpower Vindicator
Gather round for tragic song
Of a man that lived for the others to be wrong
From power to the cross
Propaganda and iron hand, killed all that came across
Super-power vindicator
That's how he would be known
But he was the only one who didn't know how it ends

The points on his map are cities he had in mind
To fill her bleeding heart
Ruler of oil expense diplomatic habitus that doesn't make any sense
He gazed gold while evil gazed him
He was haunted by the mob in the end
Hiding himself in a fortress, he didn't know how it ends

He pleases the hangmen while the undertaker smiles
Embezzlement flows, prosecutor gets his share
Purge into the masses grants tyrant's chair
That's what happens when the mob gets fooled by the fear
Track Name: The Wreck
Captain’s journal, august 4:
“Five days on the sea, five days on hell, my men are afraid
On the shift, the terror reigns, it took the souls upon the sea.
The passenger shakes our spirits, it wants my blood, I pray my Lord
Five days of sea, five days of hell, my men are afraid.
This night I saw a red shadow, it flew without a sound.
I wanted to spring on the sea, but I’m the captain of the ship.
Down on the Fog, my men have sprung
They were so scared because of blood
We found this morning on the board
I’m sure this was our blood
The beast was here, and we were done.”
Track Name: Priestess Of The Oddity
Some say we've to expand, to tame a land
Our psychic states hammered into the stone.
Among those who feel, there's that girl with the heels
She's the oracle beyond the gods.

Whispers and moaning are the only advices she gives
what she foresees becomes real, it becomes real
Shrouded the world will be
You just met the priestess of the oddity

The strangeness around, the sickness in the air
You can crawl on the ground, until you cast into stone

And if the priestess makes you the king of kings
You'd be a giant with feet of clay
That's what happens when you conquer the land
And abstain going back
You'll creep here for another life!
