01 Wasteland (0:58)

(instrumental)

02 Wanderers (4:20)

cover my eyes again
still pretending that you understand my will
changing the truth again
overwhelming, without sorrow and shame

travelling through time
walk the endless line
defining boundaries between the worlds
and dimensions
exploring new lands
with a conquerors stance
across the multiverse we ride
with no end in sight

we are wanderers
passengers in time
seeking a world left behind
we are wanderers
witnesses of lies
respawn at least a thousand times

into voids we fall
we have seen it all
the vastness and the loneliness
of our lost dimensions
all we knew and loved
has passed and is lost
just a little price to pay
to usher in the new age

03 The Aspheric Sense (4:35)

let me tell you what this is all about
yore's on loop
realms drenched in blood and rust
grim consequence for the inquisitive
for those who ask the wrong questions

it's still here, the dying spark
it's still there, the opposing mind
unyielding stance

and so we ride into the deepest night
from this fire plays the anthem of light
the fate of men lies in our hands
face the broken heart of the crowd
and so we sing the songs of liberty
from this fire plays our anthem of light
uUntil we reach the highest goal
face the judgment of our crowd

where am I? The leaderís gone
cut the head off the snake
to the firing line this way will lead
without a fight, nothing will succeed
we will not play their games
currency of freedom
is always violence
the mighty tree of liberty
is watered with the blood of traitors

it concerns everyone

and so we ride into the deepest night
from this fire plays the anthem of light
the fate of men lies in our hands
face the broken heart of the crowd
and so we sing the songs of liberty
from this fire plays the anthem of light
until we reach the highest goal
face the judgment of our crowd
and so the curtain falls
from this fire plays the anthem of light
freedom is a fight
beware, the vassals are rising up!

04 Disappearing Senses (4:40)

Impact 36 - Disappearing Senses [Audio] on YouTube

join us on the ride into hell
through the divide, the blessed and damned

into a dark, demanding future
we're caught in the hands of time
we're trapped in this continuum
uncertainties are omnipresent
a chasm before our eyes
pay the fare to cross the river Styx

and I'm starting to wonder
while weíre moving faster every day

woe to those who enter the gates of Hades
a prison, made of flesh, bone, blood and fear
exploring the concentric nine circles
where damned souls receive their deserved punishment

when will I see you again, feel you again...
my hope is fading
looking for a promised land to live again...
in chains they're waiting

resisting it, it is so futile
facing your darkest fears
a fitting punishment for every sin

one circle for each wicked transgression
you'll see itís not just fire and brimstone

woe to those who enter the gates of Hades
a prison, made of flesh, bone, blood and fear
exploring the concentric nine circles
where damned souls receive their deserved punishment

when will I see you again, feel you again...
my hope has faded
looking for a promised land, to live again...
it is completed

05 Sacred (4:06)

hear free people of the world
remember all your innate worth
wholly seen so paralyzed
bound by fear all this time
it is all internalized
all is said, ain't this right?
remember all the simpler times
when might was right
no hell in sight

hate your enemy with your whole heart
misguided and alone...
self preservation is the sacred part
into a fallen world...

seizing the time
to enforce your rights
let the black sun scorch the earth

for those who are helpless
born into an orphaned land
and failed to understand its meaning
but those will survive us
cause their sacred spirit will remain

fallen from a fiery sky
misguided and alone...
told to hold our head up high
into a fallen world...
hate your enemy with your whole heart
misguided and alone...
crush them down, tear them apart
into a fallen world...

now we will break, break our chains

06 Endless (3:38)

Impact 36 - Endless [Official Lyric Video] on YouTube

wasted time
all these prayers
empty lines
on your knees
recited to deaf ears,
to a mass hallucination

to a lie
it is time
to find out
from where the essence springs
and you'll realize the strength within is what drives...

I want to know if the unknown
is a story to be told
from lessons learned
but leaving time to breathe and room to grow
ephemeral we want to be
craving for divinity
but what we miss
is a deathless kiss from the eons

a leap of faith in what we are
let's find a way to heal the scar

in dire times
we're looking for a sign
but only silence from above
is the reward
left alone in fear and pain

they'll explain
it with their higher plan
no such thing exists in this world
the answer lies within you all

free the divine light in yourself

07 Flames (4:30)

akin to the running waters
the relentless flow of time
dystopian evolution
living in a human hive
hear our forefathers
spinning wildly in their graves
all hope ain't lost
shed the depraved modern way

we won't have it
none of it at all
loss of reason
for false comity

willful destabilisation
reminiscent of ancient times
doomed to repeat itself
infinite loop of history

we used to be the waves upon the water
we used to be the guiding light
while everyone looked for the reason
we used to have the puzzle solved

floating on an endless ocean
no echoes from the waterside
the brilliance of a million colors
collapsing into black and white
here beneath the starless sky
we will take hold of the flame

aversion towards regression
freedom bound, gagged and raped
feelings of intense aggression
boiling up beneath the screen
insurrection
crucial shift in state of mind
from a burning realm we came
watch this world go up in flames

we won't have it
none of it at all
loss of reason
for false comity

you never dared to tell a lie
afraid of being blamed forever, tell me why
have you never really been yourself
just out of fear of losing me?

08 Days Of Sorrow (4:13)

dysmal visions of the world
reflected inside my mind
everything's in disarray
thereís no peace for the soul

we all conceal a shadow
from days of sorrow
just waiting to be revealed

sitting in this desolate room
all on my own
feel the end is coming soon
greet the pale horseman
extinction would be favourable
instead of rotting

behold the march of mindless masses
observing the outside world
annihilation the only option
ancient ones, hear my prayer

turn this world to dust
reduce the earth to naught

sorrow
is
endless

09 The Enemy Of Creation (4:21)

I am driven
a force within my mind
tired of winning
I surpass the deaf and blind
see me coming
to predict the unforeseen
a unique theory
seems all so very clear

ostracized, forced out
defamed as a heretic
devised a perfect process
improve the human form
merge it with technology
seen it all
our goal
is to eradicate calamity

new thoughts are spinning round and round
conception I breathe
they gently move without a sound
this is maddening
seem to arrive from everywhere
watch, this sanity
to disappear into thin air
will fade away

who shares the misery of my failed creations?
cursed with immortality without higher functions
forced to live in hiding until the end of times
dark side of our progress, a sacrifice

10 Next Generation (5:30)

energy persists endlessly
creates flesh from a constant spread
fully automated mechanical creations
no compassion is running through their circuitry

is there a way out?

heading for tomorrow not today
a new generation is around
and weíre feeling safe and sound

slaving away under the boots of uncaring lords
we are cattle herded to an automatic slaughterhouse
lost control over evolution
archetypes of a perfect life

has Asimov betrayed us?

is there a way out?
a way to avert impending doom,
hunted to the last survivor,
control is lost
access denied

heading for tomorrow not today
a new generation is around
and we're feeling safe and sound
move on whatever comes our way
we are the ancestors of a machine age

11 Skeletons (4:22)

these thoughts and endless worries
are turning me inside out
it's all end and pointless
a crushing weight on my back
it feels all hope is lost,
demons devour my mind
I am caught in a nightmare

I'm hearing all these voices
their origin is unknown
are they innate or not?
is there even a point
in finding out what's up
or should I just accept
that I am going insane

with our backs against the wall
we try to flee
will you be my sanctuary?
skeletons lurking everywhere
only there to stop and stare

and here we go again
we're adding sights to the sounds
they even come in daylight
motion me to come close
calling out my name
to take me to parts unknown
open the gates to their realm

pathology or not
is it real or am I
imagining it all
it really boggles minds
to see the lurking shadows
standing out in the light
there is no rest nor respite

with our backs against the wall
we try to ignore the fraud
still there is no sanctuary
skeletons persuading me
how things are meant to be

where am I?
I do not know
I'm trapped in a delirium
what is real I cannot know
am I right or am I wrong?

with our backs against the wall
we try to flee
searching for my sanctuary
skeletons consternating me
while I'm trying to break free

12 The Other Side (6:39)

primordial question that bothers all
what goes on with our soul?
is there a place where we go?
an afterlife? Or just blind hope?
answers to this are manifold,
the ones who give them will enforce them by the sword
who is right? Who is wrong?
the cause is lost

we're leaving the way
suppressing the voice from deep within
in a game that might be fatal
just tear down the walls
because you've been so deeply grieved
will you trespass to the other side?

demonizing ancient entities
belief in them is heresy
deviance has a consequence
suffering in heaven and on earth
they pretend their title comes from God
but it's a mean to control us all
is there a point to pray at all?
this world is lost

we're changing the game
cause there is no one left to trust
create a place without confinement
by breaking these chains
we liberate our deepest fears
just to be one with the other side

with a new philosophy, exploring distant skies
memories drift into the deep
like imaginary paintings inside a fragile mind
of what we will see on the other side
creative urges have been vanished many years ago
and no one really does remember
yesteryear was strained and frail
while the present is being perished

when the sun gets swallowed whole,
and the serpent bites its tail
as above, so below
doesn't matter
the cycle goes on

as above, so below as within, so without

02 Paralysis (4:27) (2017 Video Version)

Impact 36 - Paralysis [Official Video] on YouTube

open my eyes
a light for me when itís dark outside
donít leave me with my demons
in darkness they can hide
in darkness they can hide

inflicted pain
dynamics lost
to a state of isolation
I am the fever within
I am devouring my sins
dreams ignite the air
a dance of time as I wake up

dormant creatures of the night
set ablaze my anxious mind
a breath inside the vacuum
racing is the pulse inside

breaking the resistance
even if it leaves a scar
dreaming our values
ícause thatís what we are
thatís what we are

/CHORUS
demons fall, demons rise
life depends on all their lies
darkness shows, darkness hides
Iím a king of darkest nights

gathering forces burning bright
awake the fires inside
along the abyss I ride
through the eternal night

breaking the resistance
even if it leaves a scar
dreaming our values
ícause thatís what we are
thatís what we are

01 Infections (4:59)

Impact 36 - Infections [Audio] on YouTube

time lies in ruins
destroyed by disease
the demon in veins, my senses numb
an endless journey through a disturbing void
the virus now begins to spread

I am stuck in a perfect notion
walking through a mental maze
chaos hurts

parasites growing within my mind
genetic duplicates, clarity disarmed
Iím starting to twitch, soon to mutate
the darkness found its light in me

see me falling through infinite space
fighting the demon in my veins
dreaming denied

/CHORUS
weíre living in a world of lies
constantly out of order
trying to keep up with the pace of life
until the silence between us grows

I am stuck in a perfect notion
walking through a mental maze
chaos hurts

/CHORUS

02 New Mind Geometry (4:14)

underneath a blood red sky
revolutions start to die
under the reign
tear down the shields of the exoskeleton
break out of elimination
caused by the one and only foe
reconstruct the human code for trust
carry on, turn the tide, keep it going
try to make the things alright

/CHORUS
searching for my salvation Ė crawling through the pain
on a long and winding road Ė though I know I am alone
standing in contemplation Ė stuck in the web
of death, Iíll be reborn Ė we are reborn

reshaping to a perfect form
disintegrate and recompose
against the norm

underneath a blood red sky
revolutions start to die
under the reign
tear down the shields of the exoskeleton
break out of elimination
caused by the one and only foe
reconstruct the human code for trust
carry on, turn the tide, keep it going
try to make the things alright

/CHORUS

just right before the storm

03 Empire Recreation (4:32)

born from a void in the galaxy
a privilege of singularity
this kingdom full of slavery
we are the anomaly

/CHORUS
witness the dawn of the end (dying alone)
the poison breath
behold (and learn) your seed of evolution
the rumbling machines of death

born into greed and inequity
our privilege of inhumanity
as the creations crest we are diverting the throne

/CHORUS
witness the dawn of the end (dying alone)
the poison breath
behold (and learn) your seed of evolution
passed to the ghost of misguidance

look up to me and raise your voice
it is the final chapter
but before begins you have the choice
to start anew
once a colourful kingdom, so full of life
now dark and abandoned
stranded souls will tear you apart
and make your senses go blind

empire recreation
from the place of devastation
to find a new world order
transcending our fathers
to be free again

04 Heliosphere (3:59)

I am lost, disconnected
reduced to basic functions of my mind
I walk into the shadow
to run away from drowning in flames

sometimes we leave a trace
for those who feel misplaced

/CHORUS
at the edge of space
lost and out of control
travelling the timelines
to find my way
in absence of a purpose
things reshape in clarity

decompile the existence
escaping from another profane shape
Iím drifting in a distance
all eyes on me
but I remain unseen

sometimes we catch a glimpse
of what is about to begin

/CHORUS

05 Scaling Reality (4:18)

feels like time escapes
from my restless human body
triggering a brighter future
need to welcome my insanity
staring at the firmament
waiting for the system to collapse
when my fragmentsÖ
I fall from the sky
witness beginsÖ
Öof the reassembling process

inhale the breath of renewal
cross the line of devastation
obsession and will
my convergent evolution

/CHORUS
rising from the ashes
we will have to burn (in) the sun
an entire life is changing
when the worlds collide
we discover our fears
try to scale reality
waiting for the perfect moment
to make the final move

on a red horizon, the dawn of a new day
if a death is worth the life that it takes
I will a thousand times
obsession and will
my convergent evolution

will I find a way
to start a new beginning
dancing through the ages
to find my own reality

/CHORUS

06 The Tides (5:14)

uncrewed and abanonded
Iíve seen no water for centuries
delirium is killing the years floating right through me

/CHORUS
following the frequency
the tidal forces resurrect me
navigated by the gravitean force
along with the rising fall

security is in the silence
rust and salt feed on the substance
not any grain of sand could hurt me
the captain is one with his ship

brave the elements, the storm
what is stranded cannot sink
this wreck stands like a statue
awaiting the wave for one last time

/CHORUS

how could I swim in oceans dry
a dead heart sheds no tears
the river runs the longest way

07 Undertow (3:28)

Impact 36 - Undertow [Audio] on YouTube

below the surface screams my perfect life
a blazing hope to win this fight

the regret, it finds me twice
forever lives the sceptic ghost

/CHORUS
walk with me
before I finally fall from grace
and my live is not worth to be
can it be that I am caught in a thousand lies
at the point of no return?

falling to the ground
through gravity enraged
the past will never cease
scavenging my dreams

push me to the edge
closer to the distance
I feel alive
drowning

is it real?
a trick inside my mind, a thing I canít deny
needs to be unveiled
one moment in trust throws a shadow
in the wrong direction

/CHORUS

08 A Paradox Of Conflicts (4:14)

behold, we're on collision course
an empire that needs your full attention
to sanctify this race for arms
counting the moments 'til the loss of control

destruction and a hail for glory
we fear the war but war does not fear us
it's the worst nightmares we keep
that prevent us from the escalation

/CHORUS
at the highest point
beyond the dreams of man
we are walking a thin line

between ascension and falling down

let the storm rage through the house of cards
swallow the dust, replacing the oceans
when armies collide and the thunder appears
the masses are screaming

forfeiting their fears

/CHORUS

it's the worst weapons we create
that save us from demise

waves of separation,
forcing the entropy

09 Paralysis (4:30)

Impact 36 - Paralysis [Audio] on YouTube

Impact 36 - Paralysis (2017 Version ft. Juls Borg) [Official Video] on YouTube

in darkness they can hide

inflicted pain
dynamics lost

I am the fever within
I am devouring my sins

a breath inside the vacuum

10 Shattered Lens (4:32) (Bonus Track)

Impact 36 - Shattered Lens (Bonus Track) [Audio] on YouTube

when it all fell apart
my heart was sleeping
from the inside out
you came creeping
a little boy with no name
feeling guilty, feeling frail
drowned in a sea that starts to burn

when it all came to this
my soul was dreaming
from the outside in
you left standing
an old man with no aim
feeling fragile feeling pale
and suffocate in loneliness

what would I give
to see his face in brighter lights
what would it take
to feel alive again
what could I stand
before unity finally reveals
the sun of a new day?

I still pretend to hold my head up high
but dwell in a place that I forsake

01 The Aspheric Sense (4:33) (Demo)

Impact 36 - The Aspheric Sense (Demo) [Audio] on YouTube

the curtain falls and so does the same about
the beloved king, a burial in dust
this is what is done to those who ask too much
too those who love too deep

it's still here, a dying spark
it's still there, a relit sense

/CHORUS
and so we ride into the deepest night
from a fire plays an anthem of light
the faith of man lies in our hands
it's the broken heart of the crowd
and so we sing the songs of liberty
from a fire plays an anthem of light
until we reach the highest goal
it's the broken heart of the crowd

the curtain burns, the king has gone
let them call for clarity
the frontline is my only friend
a call to arms to people without guns
this little mirror game
freedom is a fight, reclusion my reward
the words I speak revolve in your heart
revolve around everyone

/CHORUS

and so the curtain falls
freedom is a fight

02 New Mind Geometry (4:14) (Demo)

Impact 36 - New Mind Geometry (Demo) [Audio] on YouTube

underneath a blood red sky
revolutions start to die
under the reign
tear down the shields of the exoskeleton
break out of elimination
caused by the one and only foe
reconstruct the human code for trust
carry on, turn the tide, keep it going
try to make the things alright

/CHORUS
searching for my salvation Ė crawling through the pain
on a long and winding road Ė though I know I am alone
standing in contemplation Ė stuck in the web
of death, Iíll be reborn Ė we are reborn

we all presume us innocent
tear us down, we won't be afraid
to leave this cage

underneath a blood red sky
revolutions start to die
under the reign
tear down the shields of the exoskeleton
break out of elimination
caused by the one and only foe
reconstruct the human code for trust
carry on, turn the tide, keep it going
try to make the things alright

so we deny this repression
resolved we push our songs to the sky

step aside, see the freedom come
rising monuments in electrostatic storms
thinking is our battle, thoughts our swords
no look behind, a victory against demise
step aside, a new haven in your world
step aside, see the freedom come

/CHORUS

just right before the storm

03 Undertow (3:23) (Demo)

below the surface seems to sleep my perfect life
still fight to keep the end in sight

the regret, it finds me twice
long lasts the sceptic ghost in my heart

/CHORUS
walk with me
before I finally fall from grace
and my live is not worth to be
can it be that I am caught in a thousand lies
at the point of no return?

keep alive the battle
for the reasons for that things might never change
the code of constant cycle

is it real?
a trick inside my mind, a thing I canít deny
needs to be unveiled
one moment in trust throws a shadow
in the wrong direction

/CHORUS

and my life is not worth to be ...
to the point of no return Ö of no return

04 Level Shift (4:23) (Demo)

Impact 36 - Level Shift (Demo) [Audio] on YouTube

drowning in messages tailored to my needs
as a part of the machinery
I'm facing the illusion day by day
longing for serenity that vanished from my live
remembering the beauty of it all

you change yourself to fit into the mold
you must achieve more than you've been told
the gears are spinning fast
claiming you to be the most effective part
bound to this machinery
remembering the beauty of it all

/CHORUS
I struggle for constant
injecting the world they want me to see
synchronized with parallel thinking
my living fabric ceases to be

running in circles and never see the end
time and time again we're trying to adapt to the scheme
ad with a dying will we spiral downward
remembering the beauty of it all

/CHORUS

eye for an eye, superior ignorance

the promise in my hands reminds me of the past
the future in my eyes
my frantic need

ghosts recruiting perfect minds
a history in wealth and stones

05 The Tides (5:11) (Demo)

Impact 36 - The Tides (Demo) [Audio] on YouTube

uncrewed and abandoned
I've seen no water for centuries
delirium is killing the years, floating right through me

/CHORUS
following the frequency
the tidal forces resurrect me
navigated by the gravitean force
along with the rising fall

security is in the silence
where rust and salt live on the substance
no grain of sand would hurt me
the captain is one with his ship
regardless of the storms
a stranded ship can't sink
my wreck is like a statue
awaiting the surge to set sail once again

/CHORUS

how could I swim in the oceans dry
for a dead heart sheds no tears
survived its yearning all forever

the winds turn to dust
the sails turn to blood
where will I stand?

06 A New State Of Mind (5:19) (Demo)

Impact 36 - A New State Of Mind (Demo) [Audio] on YouTube

there need to be no laughter
nor even amusement in the ordinary sense
so let the humor flash
and burn in the most deperate obscurities
the goal is almost reched but not yet

/CHORUS
I'm falling deeper into a new state of mind

comedy withers more quickly than tragedy
you're a comedy that has not survived
rhe goal is almost reched but not yet
some obstacles will remain

/CHORUS

07 Disappearing Senses (4:40)*

Impact 36 - Disappearing Senses [Audio] on YouTube

join us on the ride into hell
through the divide between the blessed and damned

into a dark, demanding future
we are caught in the hands of time
trapped in this continuum
uncertainties are omnipresent
a chasm before our eyes
pay the fare to cross the river styx

and Iím starting to wonder while we are moving faster every day

woe to those who enter the gates of hades
a prison, made of flesh, bone, blood and fear
exploring the concentric nine circles
where damned souls receive their deserved punishment

/CHORUS
when will I see you again
feel you againÖ
my hope is fading
looking for a promised land
to live againÖ
in chains they're waiting

resisting it, it is so futile
facing your darkest fears
a fitting sanction for every sin

one circle for each wicked transgression
you'll see it's not just fire and brimstone

/SAMPLE

woe to those who enter the gates of hades
a prison, made of flesh, bone, blood and fear
exploring the concentric nine circles
where damned souls receive their deserved punishment

/CHORUS
when will I see you again
feel you againÖ
my hope has faded
looking for a promised land
to live againÖ
it is completed

02 Paralysis (4:27) (2017 Video Version)*

Impact 36 - Paralysis [Official Video] on YouTube

open my eyes
a light for me when itís dark outside
donít leave me with my demons
in darkness they can hide
in darkness they can hide

inflicted pain
dynamics lost
to a state of isolation
I am the fever within
I am devouring my sins
dreams ignite the air
a dance of time as I wake up

dormant creatures of the night
set ablaze my anxious mind
a breath inside the vacuum
racing is the pulse inside

breaking the resistance
even if it leaves a scar
dreaming our values
ícause thatís what we are
thatís what we are

/CHORUS
demons fall, demons rise
life depends on all their lies
darkness shows, darkness hides
Iím a king of darkest nights

gathering forces burning bright
awake the fires inside
along the abyss I ride
through the eternal night

breaking the resistance
even if it leaves a scar
dreaming our values
ícause thatís what we are
thatís what we are

/CHORUS

12 A Paradox Of Conflicts (4:15) (Demo)*

Impact 36 - A Paradox Of Conflicts (Demo) [Audio] on YouTube

behold, we're on collision course
an empire that needs your full attention
to sanctify this race for arms
counting the moments 'til the loss of control

destruction and a hail for glory
we fear the war but war does not fear us
it's the worst nightmares we keep
that prevent us from the escalation

/CHORUS
at the highest point
beyond the dreams of man
we are walking a thin line

between ascension and falling down

let the storm rage through the house of cards
swallow the dust, replacing the oceans
when armies collide and the thunder appears
the masses are screaming

forfeiting their fears

/CHORUS

it's the worst weapons we create
that save us from demise

waves of separation,
forcing the entropy
