Astoria (2017)

My Insanity
Music: Sweeping Death / Lyrics: Elias Witzigmann

Fifteen years locked away in darkness
Narcotized, anesthetized, deafened from the silence
Four white walls, setting of this horror
I killed two men just to see the abyss of my sanity

“Lights out!” Walls are closing in!

You better make me forget your name
Or don´t you know what I am?
Free me from you!
Someday I´ll get out of this place
But will not forget your face
Lock up your door, you´re the first one in line!
Witness me in my insanity!

“You´re trapped in here forever!“
Cries a voice behind my face
Wasted days in this mental maze
Sanity lies far behind
And again I hear them talking right behind my back:
Adjust the medication, increase sedative

“Lights out!” Walls are closing in!

You better make me forget your name
Or don´t you know what I am?
Free me from you!
Someday I´ll get out of this place
But will not forget your face
Lock up your door, you´re the first one in line!
Witness me in my insanity!

Trapped in this nightmare but still I can´t sleep
Trapped in my own my mind with the secrets I have to keep

Solo Markus
Solo Simon

Frantic / Phobic / Frantic and neurotic
Frantic / Psychotic / Tell me, Am I brainsick?

I finally forget my name but at least I´m still insane
Too many years, too many pills
This empty shell thrills for a Kill
Lock up your door you´re the first one in line!
Witness me in my insanity!

Pioneer Of Time
Music: Tobias Kasper, Simon Bertl / Lyrics: Elias Witzigmann

They try to define your time
With numbers ,glass and gear
But tell me, what do they fear?
They feel the urge to control
Everything that you do
We are the Panthers, trapped inside a cage

Lies / Lies / Lies
Wake up! Don´t believe their lies!
Eyes / Eyes / eyes
See the hunger flashes in our eyes
Pride / Pride / Pride
There must be a world outside
Choke upon their twisted lies
Tonight the Panther dies

They took all our time
Can’t stop me from taking back what is mine
I am the pioneer of time

Yes you and me are chained up
And now our air gets thin
With every single grain of sand!
But this sense of rotation
Will become obsolete
The panther masticates his old and rusty cage

Lies / Lies / Lies
Wake up! Don´t believe their lies!
Eyes / Eyes / eyes
See the hunger flashes in our eyes
Pride / Pride / Pride
There must be a world outside
Choke upon their twisted lies

They took all our time
Can’t stop me from taking back what is mine
I am the pioneer of time

I saw a world outside
But still these chains won´t break
I saw the other side
But this world was a bigger cage

I saw a world outside
But still these chains won´t break
I saw the other side
But in the end you can´t escape

Tick Tock
Your Time is up
Tick Tock
Slaves of the Clock
Tick Tock Tick Tock

Astoria
Music: Sweeping Death / Lyrics: Elias Witzigmann / Simon Bertl

Astoria
It´s for the world to see
Together
Living but ain´t loving
Astoria
In chains but somehow free
Forever
On fire but ain´t burning

The doubt burns deep, when my mind starts to seek
A better half for me, a silent denial
Between the lines, truth lies concealed
But my eyes are dazed by fear

Astoria
It´s for the world to see
Together
You´re drowning while I’m smiling
Astoria
In chains but somehow free
Forever
I’m living but you`re dying

A breach of trust and now the die is cast,
Whether I´m right or wrong, I´m my own God
Time will tell if I´ll regret my loss
Or if you will in the end adorn my cross

And so ten years have gone by
Time seems to fade away
You found what you thought was in me
Somebody save us from making the same mistakes
Thick Blood runs down my hands, Astoria you´re free
Now you´re free

Taste the blood, now you´re free
Taste the blood, now you´re free

Solo Simon

Die, Die, Die Astoria

Die, Die, Die Astoria

Die, Die, Die Astoria

Die, Die, Die Astoria

Somebody save us!

Devil’s Dance
Music: Sweeping Death / Lyrics: Elias Witzigmann

Since I was born the people used to call me defaced
But I swore to myself, I will wipe out this vicious disgrace
So I summoned the devil and said: “You shall have my soul,
But make me the king of all mirrors, I demand this throne”

What you get/ Is what you see / Come close to me
Now I´ll take your eyes / And you´ll realize / Where true beauty lies

I saw the devil dance

I touched my face and I felt: The lord kept his word
But when I opened my eyes I saw a never ending dark
After all what is beauty worth, when you can´t please yourself?
I was alone in the dark until something touched my hand
May I have this dance?

What you get/ Is what you see / Come close to me
Now that I took your eyes / I hope you realized / Where true beauty lies

I saw the devil dance

Dance, Dance, Dance, Dance / I´m a blinded king!
Dance, Dance, Dance, Dance / Do you like to put your foot in?

Solo Simon
Solo Markus
Solo Simon
Solo Markus

What you get / Is what you see / Come close to me
Now that I took your eyes / I hope you realized / Where true beauty lies

What you got / You can not see / come close to me
Go live in peace / You handsome king / Forever in a trance

I saw the devil dance

Death & Legacy
Music: Markus Heilmeier / Lyrics: Elias Witzigmann

With every step you take
On the path to understand society
You can hear the crack of bones
Of those who lie beneath
Society as we know it
Evolves just like a snake
It´s peeling of the old skin
The skin becomes a feast

Death and legacy

Beneath the ground the truth lies
Exposed for those who understand
Human life never meant to last

Death and legacy

This Church is build on the bodies of the nonbelievers
This Bank is build on the bones of the poor
This government is build on the skulls of those who fought the system
What if I take a look down and someone stares back at me?

Death and legacy / Pillars of hypocrisy / Death and legacy
(The) Souls of those beneath us hunting me

And as you breath
The snake slithers forth
Ready to devour all the obsolete values
You can fallow her from nation to nation
You can witness total indoctrination
The evolution never ends

Death and legacy

This Church is build on the bodies of the nonbelievers
This Bank is build on the bones of the poor
This government is build on the skulls of those who fought the system
What if I take a look down and someone stares back at me?

With every step you take
On the path to understand society
You can hear the crack of bones
Of those who lie beneath

Solo Markus

Death and legacy / Pillars of hypocrisy / Death and legacy
(The) Souls of those beneath us hunting
Death and legacy / Die! / Pillars of hypocrisy / Die! / Death and legacy / Die!
(The) Souls of those beneath us hunting me

Till Death Do Us Part
Music: Tobias Kasper / Lyrics: Elias Witzigmann

Hold on, hold on

If I would die today I would say,
Goodbye to those who paved my way
Don´t forget that you own a part of my heart

You know who you are

Till Death do us part

Sonic Magic
Music: Tobias Kasper / Lyrics: Elias Witzigmann

We´ve come together here
to celebrate the now
today, tonight, we´ll find
a breathing manifest born out of the nothingness
so we´re breathing out
and you shall breathe us in
an unnamend feeling within
until we´ve chosen to call it
Sweeping Death

all that you desire:
part of this smokeless fire
redemption and salvation
let these words be heard!
we´ve found
the devine
in between

loosing all in this devine magic zone
now take my hand, I´ll give my soul to save you all

tonight we won´t obey
this music sets us free
can´t tame us, no can´t safe us
from this manifest born out of the nothingness
electric sorcery
amplified witchcraft
sonic magic

we´ve found the devine in between
for now on the hungers hall lead!

loosing all in this devine magic zone
now take my hand, I´ll give my soul to save you all

breathing life in
breathing life in
breathing the life in
Something more than
five hearts, one soul
coming after you!

watch out! watch out! we´re coming after you!
annihilate all doubts ´till you are free

watch out! watch out! we´ve come to celebrate!
celebrate what there is and what might be

watch out! watch out! we´re coming after you!
let´s celebrate what there is and might be

In Lucid (2018)

Blues Funeral
Music: Sweeping Death / Lyrics: Sweeping Death

I saw the wild in your eyes
As I felt the same need inside
Beyond this world relief awaits
We choose the night to burn again

We´ll lay
In the same grave
Remain untamed

Blues Funeral
Tonight we meet again
To devour and to burn
Blues Funeral
We meet below the light
Descendants of the night

Be floated now, sails of my soul
Devine as we take back control
No more shame!
We lay to rest, our hollow past
We are the night and we still burn

We´ll lay
In the same grave
Remain untamed

Blues Funeral
Tonight we meet again
To devour and to burn
Blues Funeral
We meet below the light
Descendants of the night

After all these lifelesss years
I must ecape from all my fears
There´s something inside me, I must confess
It will last!

Horror Infernal
Music: Sweeping Death / Lyrics: Sweeping Death

Gazing the silence, shapless and pure
Holding the mist in its womb
Emerged from a dreamland, now skylights have all turned
It penetrates your life, quenchless rebirth

Aeons wasted in slumber but there comes the time
(where) you open your eyes
Gateways coated in mist, holding the truth
now you must choose
Between the dark and the fires of light
Predict the end of time!
A crack in the skull that´s holding the crown
It lashes down

The other side will find a way into your life
The horror redefined
The other side will show the purest forms of life
Horror infernal

Secrets reveald by the mares of the night
Longing for unconquered ways
For evil no longer bearing ist mask
A floodgate through Satan´s maze

Aeons wasted in slumber but there comes the time
(where) you open your eyes
Gateways coated in mist, holding the truth
now you must choose
Between the dark and the fires of light
Predict the end of time!
A crack in the skull that´s holding the crown
It lashes down

The other side will find a way into your life
The horror redefined
The other side will show the purest forms of life
Horror infernal
Horror infernal

Suicide of A Chiromantist
Music: Sweeping Death / Lyrics: Sweeping Death

Come close, death is drawing near
Come closer, death calls
And I´ll take you where your lines lead me too

And year after year
I saw their end, felt their fear
A vicious crime against the time
So they say

While the same fear slowly grows
My own fate remains unkown
Alive , without eyes
So they say

I won´t go where my lines lead me to and I wont´ fall, fall for you

Is this the end that calls me again?
A will to die yet I´m afraid to live
This is the End, it calls me again
A will to die yet I´m afraid to live
This is my end

Long enough I can´t wait
I won´t serve my fate
The blind will find
The end

I won´t go where my lines lead me to and I wont´ fall, fall for you

Is this the end that calls me again?
A will to die yet I´m afraid to live
This is the End, it calls me again
A will to die yet I´m afraid to live
This is my end

As I tried to end it I found my hands blank and
No cold thruth lies behind my eyes
Why can´t I die
Tell me, am I not alive?

I´ve wasted my time
with lives that were not mine
No scars on my skin
I die without sin

Is this the end that calls me again?
A will to die yet I´m afraid to live

Is this the end that calls me again?
A will to die yet I´m afraid to live
This is the End, it calls me again
A will to die yet I´m afraid to live

Resonanz
Music: Sweeping Death / Lyrics: Sweeping Death

In comes the flood again
Pillars corrode to sand

In waves I am bleeding
Into flood again
In waves I´m acending
From below to above

Resonance!
You must find the things that make it worth
To live with no regrets

Drown in the undertow
Return to down below

In waves, to where I am bleeding into the flood again
In waves, once more I´m acending from below to above

Resonance!
Promise now to live until you die, to love, to loose and to cry

In waves, to where I am bleeding into the flood again
In waves, once more I´m acending from below to above

Resonance!

Now we feel, we breathe, we live
In comes the flood again

Antitecture
Music: Sweeping Death / Lyrics:Sweeping Death

The longing for a balance in every form
In light reborn

The source of all Is chaos in purest form
At dark all dawns

We are the children of sacred light
We bow down to the night inside
We are the children of sacred light
We bow down to the night inside

Screaming from the hollow
The reason lies in chains
Down below creation
The antitecture reigns

We are the children of sacred light
We bow down to the night inside
We are the children of sacred light
We bow down to the night inside

Screaming from the hollow
The reason lies in chains
Down below creation
The antitecture reigns in me

Lucid Sin
Music: Sweeping Death / Lyrics: Sweeping Death

There´s a second face behind my skin
Can´t deny true desires within me
A second meaning in all that we do
Where all men have to kneel before

All within my hands, creating our very own Gomorrah

We remain, to the end, tainted souls of cruel design
We remain, to the end, tainted souls, just a vessel for lucid sins

Since to live is to sin once again
We have found our ways to sentence
Laws and Rules just ways to deny
What there lies deep inside our soul

All within my hands, creating our very own Gomorrah

Inside my mind, it takes its form

Grief of our time
Lucid sin shines!

The spirit enslaved by tender sin

Open up your mind!
A truth that´s kept deep inside

We remain, to the end, tainted souls of cruel design
We remain, to the end, tainted souls, just a vessel for lucid sins

Stratus
Music: Sweeping Death / Lyrics: Sweeping Death

Daring to turn my eyes inside
Expose my mind
Slowly assembled, piece by piece
It all made sense, truth revealed

Within this world will assert itself now!

Thoughts so clear they lead the way

Stratus

Too far, it has taken complete control over my dazed mind
Lost and never found, a mental maze that got me trapped inside

Stratus

(A) gift of understanding lies beneath what only eyes can see
Sense of beeing human is to seek this path of liberty

In the silence lies
Revelation in me, eyes can´t see
Unfold realms of what it means to be
In the silence lies
Revelation in me, eyes can´t see
Unfold realms of what it means to be
Independence is solitude, now attained
For eternity on my own, I´ll remain
Stillness of the cold space, leave me now I´m here to stay
(in) absence of their presence far away from misery

In this silence lies
Revelation in me, eyes can´t see
Unfold realms of what it means to be
In this silence lies
Revelation in me, eyes can´t see
Unfold realms of what it means to be

Silence!
