    Poem: Ready to Fire



    Ready to fire,
    kneel before the might
    ready to fire
    your end is tonight

    The will to rise above you
    final will’s to destroy you
    so get ready to fire
    get ready to burn

    Get ready to fight
    the final battle is going tonight
    when I stood in front of you
    fell the rage I am burning
    finally, you’ll see the truth
    the ash you’re turning

    Ready to fire
    feel my might
    ready to fire
    die with my pride

    A gunshot in your fucking head
    scream and despair
    the smell of your fear
    drives me madder

    Ready to fire,
    start the war
    annihilation from the face of the earth
    slay the enemy, kill ’em all
    the smell of dust and insanity,
    blood, sweat, and tears
    scream of pain, of terror
    scorn your suffering
    I am leaving
    leaving like liberator

    Ready to fire, start the war
    annihilation from the face of the earth
    slay the enemy, kill ’em all
    the fusion of dust and…

    Poem: Spellbound



    I can run from my demons
    but they won’t leave me
    in a which hour they keep wake me up
    tearing my soul apart

    In cold sweat, I cannot breathe
    why do they won’t leave me
    I can’t take it anymore

    Just when I am on the edge when I’m about to broke
    they just stop and laugh to me
    Is this some joke?

    And they come back every night
    torturing me ’till I have nothing left for the fight

    Broken down with tears and shakes
    they keep adding more pain
    leading me to new mistakes
    turning my life in hell.

    Poem: My Guardian Angel



    All these years it’ s driving me crazy
    My heart is broken, living in pain
    My guardian angel is so lazy,
    Drunk, or kicked out in the rain

    When he’s sober and with the hangover
    He does something for me
    Like a foreign movie without a subtitle
    I don’t understand what he’s saying

    I pray to him to watch over me
    I pray for help and good luck
    But he’s at the bar, you see
    He’ s drunk again and he doesn’t give a fuck

    Poem: Take It All



    Take all our money
    take all the power
    what will you bring
    when it comes to the final hour?

    Hide behind the diploma
    hide behind the uniform
    get up from this mental coma
    hide from a bullet storm

    Under the curtain of madness
    in the surface of ignorance
    you only bring the sadness
    giving nothing for existence

    Drowning us, we hit the bottom
    and everything we have
    takes Babylon

    Poem: Forgotten Burning Soul



    I’m burning this bridge, my heart to the ground
    I have put my hopes up to high
    It’s time for them to go back down to the mess that’s around
    I will never have a firm stance in life,
    Forever under rubble, I will be found
    But under this self-afflicted weight,
    Have I realized a truth so profound,
    That because of expectations,
    I’ve become numb
    I put my heart into others too soon
    But relationships last like the rise and fall of the sun
    So in the ashes of the day,
    And the frozen caves of the night,
    I stumble upon who
    I’ve become: A forgotten soul,
    No one,
    A rotten corpse in the day,
    And a lonely caveman at night,
    The only hope I have Is the opposite life in sight
    But both are two of the same
    A forgotten soul,
    Trying to find meaning in his name,
    But even if he found one
    It wouldn’t help him none
    Cause when you’re lost, you’re lost
    It’s like having a heart with no lungs
    Craving love but no tongue,
    The only thing left is to survive,
    Or from the truth, run.

    Poem: What do you fear?



    Head up high looking for the sky,
    Only gray clouds again, no end in sight,
    I am sitting, just listening to the drops of rain,
    A happy home, but what’s the reality?
    Does your mind go fast?
    And how long does that last?
    How fast does it break the walls around you?
    Can you escape the prison you built yourself?
    I can see the state of misery from the introduction,
    Maybe I will use my eyes to see a brighter day,
    The pictures don’t get clearer, but I feel like I am nearer,
    Am I from around here?
    Don’t want to be everything you want,
    Don’t want to be everything for you,
    I don’t even fucking know you,
    Could it be to be my destiny,
    Something that killed me?
    Well I can’t follow, because I am still alive
    Only the scars are there and I just fly I don’t care,
    If you try to kill me, your life I won’t spare,
    You want to take me far away from here,
    What’s your true intention?
    What the hell do you fear?

    Poem: Reading it Well



    I looked out the window,
    The sun was gone,
    I put some music on,
    Listening to the wind outside,
    I woke up in the middle of the day again,
    What a pain,
    I wonder what’s wrong,
    Why can’t I enjoy a single song,
    I can’t see what others tell me,
    More than feelings, more than stories,
    I see more than you could tell, from a text,
    You wouldn’t know, how can you even tell,
    When I hide so well?

    Poem: Despair of the Poet

    The wolfs are howling
    It’s a sad howl
    The dead are dead
    Souls are wandering, searching for it
    Despair, once it was just a word Today its the world

    God let us down once again
    Nor an enemy nor a friend
    Just not there
    We had to look for despair
    It leads us to it
    Now we want it

    Life is chaos
    Chaos is beauty in the mind of a poet
    The poet knows, oh that poet knows the world he owns
    From chaos he creates peace
    Then rips the page

    Only chaos, that’s the state of his mind
    He does not want any help, yet he is kind
    What in the world does he need that chaos for in his mind?
    Despair, despair dear friend
    It is where the poet comes to an end.

    Poem: Ode to Farewell

    Through the wind I heared a sigh

    And as snowflakes covered my fallen brother

    I said my last goodbye

    The night came

    So endeth the day

    And I was to go away

    Over the hills

    Over the sea

    To the lands that I have never seen

    The lands that connect to the sea

    Under the cloud

    Without the stars

    No snow in the winter

    No flowers in the spring

    Alone I came

    But back I will be with lots of friends

    And where the road will take me

    I won’t tell

    Because when the day comes

    To bid you farewell

    I will tell

    I will tell to everyone around me

    And if I see them again, faith will tell me

    Where the road takes me

    I came all this way

    And when the day comes to bid everyone farewell

    I will tell them

    About the places I have been

    About the sorrows I have seen

    And I won’t forget

    Nor will I regret

    The people that went on this road with me

    And with this night ending

    So ends my day

    Alongside the devil in hell

    With the angels in heaven

    Through the silver streams

    And big seas

    Over hills

    And over mountains

    Through forests

    And deserts

    I couldn’t know

    And I wouldn’t want to know

    Where the road took me

    And to whom I bid ferewell

    Poem: Hunger

    I feel a hunger in my heart
    Its just enough to keep me awake at night
    Are you the answer I should wonder
    I can feel my appetite for you
    I can feel my heart beat faster
    So take me home with you
    Let me take a bite of you
    Just let me feel you breath
    And make your heart beat faster
    So take me home tonight
    And be my little baby
