Track Name: A Lullaby for Mankind II
"Sleep, baby sleep
don't open your eyes
what you don't see
can't hurt you

Trust in what I say,
just relax

you've had a long day
and now it's time to rest

Trust in what I say
just relax
grown ups will care for you
through the night

Sleep, baby sleep
don't open your eyes

Trust in what I say,
just relax
grown ups will care for you
through the night

Act like the child you really are
close your eyes, leave all decisions to us

Ignore the sorrow and pain
you feel
for there is nothing for you
to worry about

Act like the child you really are
close your eyes, leave all decisions to us
Track Name: The Sky Falls Down I
Where do you think you're going?
Where do you think you go?
What do you think will happen
if you don't follow my voice?


Maybe the stars will fall down
from the sky
Maybe the harvest
will be destroyed


Your gods have betrayed you
Your gods left you alone
What do you think will happen
if you don't follow my voice?


Maybe the stars will fall down
from the sky
Maybe the harvest
will be destroyed
Track Name: The Masterplan
This new religion
we must embrace
It give's us what we always wanted
They sacrifice their lives
and don't complain
because a glorious afterlife is offered

We'll preach sacrifice
and this new faith
will be the only whip we need
They'll stand anything
and don't complain
because a glorious afterlife is offered
Track Name: The Dark Ages
If you leave yourself behind
you will find your way to the promised land

Never question anything
everything that happens is God's will


You will obey my law
follow the Lord
or you will suffer forever
the fire of hell
for your heressy
your disobedience
we'll kill you in life
to get you there


There, underneath your soul
lies the sin that got you damned


You will obey my law
follow the Lord
or you will suffer forever
the fire of hell
for your heressy
your disobedience
we'll kill you in life
to get you there


It's not enough to be a good man
you must pay your coin for salvation
Track Name: Colonization
Con Biblia y espada navegamos hacia el nuevo mundo.
Nuestra fiebre del oro no podemos detener.

Este imperio conquistaremos con honor
El Dorado será nuestra eterna morada

Con Biblia y espada
conquistaremos todo


The prophecy revealed
that the gods would come from the sea
they killed our tribe, they killed our creed
they brought disease
they took our land
they killed our kings
and replaced them with their own
but their final victory came when
we prayed to their lord

With Bible and sword
they killed us all
Track Name: A Lullaby for Mankind III
Baby, wake up
please open your eyes
don't let them take
all decisions for you

Ignore the sorrow and pain
you feel
And start cuestioning things

Act like the man you really are
open your eyes and take a stand
Act like the man you really are
open your eyes and take a stand
Track Name: He's Here
"We have been waiting his return
very patiently
But millions have suffered because we weren't ready.

The time we all have been waiting for
has arrived
Put together science and religion
and we'll bring him back"

"We have cloned our Lord
he's here
We have cloned our Lord
he's here"
Track Name: No One Knew
One of them was given as a child
to a poor couple who wanted to raise a kid
as their own


No one knew
who this child really was,
he had a normal life.
No one noticed
anything peculiar
'till he's brother died


Look at the people below you,
you are their king
They came from all over the world
to worship you


No one knew
how this child really felt
at the top of the world.
His word was law
and everyone adored him
but he knew the truth
Track Name: Mass
"...et quintus angelus tuba cecinit
et vidiand stellam de caelo cecidisse
in terram eta
data est illi
clavis putei abyssi etis
aperuit puteum abyssi et ascendit
fumu fornacis magnae et obscuratus..."
Track Name: The Sky Falls Down II
"Even though it is amazing
to be centre of the world
What do you think will happen
if I reveal I'm not The Son?

Surely the Church won't be able
to take the blow
Maybe all the lies will
be destroyed
Track Name: For Everyone to See
But the Holy Church
wouldn't give in so easy

They seized him in his sleep
called him the antichrist
tied to cross and
executed him in the courtyard

For everyone to see
the shame of trusting in science

They seized him in his sleep
called him the antichrist
tied to cross and
executed him in the courtyard

And they searched the other kid
the one they left
with the family
he was made king

They seized him in his sleep
called him Mesiah
dressed him like a king
and coronated him in the courtyard

For everyone to see
Track Name: We Will Drown in a Sea of Ignorance Until We Evolve Into Something That Can Turn It To Oxygen I
And humanity was left once again
in a sea of ignorance
with a child as living god
and everyone to follow him

Century after century
and the same tyrant prevails
but sometime we will set free
and reason will rule
