Heavily influenced by DEMONS by Fyodor Dostoevsky.
When a lover faces danger, and you can not help.
Each man suffers for all. Each man is guilty before all.
If you are not ashamed to admit the crime, why are you ashamed of repentance?


released July 6, 2012

T. Boettner: Power electronics, vocals

Track Name: I°
each man sins against all
and each man is guilty
for another's sin
there is no isolation
coarser than your heart would wish
repentance and the natural need
if not the proud challenge
of a guilty man to his judge
if you are not ashamed to confess the crime,
why are you ashamed of repentance?
Track Name: II°
their hatred will evoke yours
for my sins
both voluntary and involuntary
universal pity
would not endure
the degree of sincerity
an impassible abyss
horror on all sides
more false than sincere
Track Name: III°
done in humility
the greatest Christian deed
endure it
endure it
everything will be counted
not a half thought in vain
