Eight-fold Path

Songtext for Tendonitis

intro
down in the abyss of my heart
eternal duty claws apart
my being

darkness is strong within my soul
always the battle for control

there’s no relenting no retreat
no hope for truce and no defeat
two sides are one and yet not whole
witness the battle for control

chorus
the eight-fold path
strive to achieve
the tears of things
hope to relieve

bridge
must not falter
not give in
karmic respite
past live’s sin
endless circle
loop and repeat
heathen in hell
no way to cheat

interlude
don’t deny my right to be
darkness is a part of me
for as long as light shines free
shadows bloom eternally

bridge
must not falter
not give in
karmic respite
past live’s sin
endless circle
loop and repeat
heathen in hell

Look Back

Lyrics I wrote for a song by Penelope Athena
Check out her Insta!

verse
everybody said that I must loose
everybody said that hope has faded

bridge
but I have never been someone to break
I am alive and strong – keep fighting on
I motivate myself cause that’s the key – the key

chorus
come here me scream
feel my desire
come hear my dream
witness my fire

rap
inside you you’ll find
all you’ll ever need
potential unbound
capacity freed

go live your dreams
for what it is worth
the fire within you let’s you conquer the world

more rap
I had found my strength
the limit was the sky
I felt a power surge
an indescribable high

now hear me all
that you aswell might be freed
believe in yourself
it’s all you’ll ever needc

chorus
come here me scream
feel my desire
come hear my dream
witness my fire

Bellum, Parabellum

Songtext for Tendonitis.
Shoutout to soon to be bestselling author Seth Jenkins for proof reading.

verse I
muster the troops for war for
this time we’ll end it all
to victory my faithful friends
that’s not how this story ends
condition their minds to mush
believe in the burning bush
march onward to victory
for everyone out there shall see

bridge
si vis pacem
parabellum

verse II
fighting for the Motherland
to seize all that we can
destroying our enemy
every chance that we can see
pillaging their houses and
defiling their spouses to see
them in wicked agony
thriving on their misery

chorus
orders received
stop their advances
artillery Siege
no second chances
down in the mud
down in the trenches
drowning in blood
withering senseless

bridge
si vis pacem
parabellum

verse III
the ditches are filled with blood
the vengeance gone with the flood
resistance was met in vain
and all that stays is grief and pain
gravestones in the morning mist while
all the women go unkissed
forgiven you can be in hell
no one can break this satan’s spell

chorus
orders received
stop their advances
artillery Siege
no second chances
down in the mud
down in the trenches
drowning in blood
withering senseless

outro
he who declares war
does not perish in the commotion

The lonely Bard

The Lonely Bard

Songtext, noch unverwendet

verse I
when worlds collide
when answers hide
when the glowing star
gloats from a far

verse II
the goal is clear
but far from near
the way is lost
unsure the cost

chorus I
and waterfalls of fireflies
are drowning in the eye
and thunderclouds of loneliness
are buried in the sky

when waterfalls of fireflies
are drowning in the eye
then butterflies in barren lands
over withering flowers cry

until they die

verse III
when songs of joy
seem all too coy
and the lonely bard
feels the piercing shard

verse IV
when comfort peaks
yet trouble speaks
into the soul
lost is the goal

chorus
and waterfalls of fireflies
are drowning in the eye
and thunderclouds of loneliness
are buried in the sky

when waterfalls of fireflies
are drowning in the eye
then butterflies in barren lands
over withering flowers cry

until they die

Mindless Void

Songtext für Tendonitis – Mindless Void

verse I
witness the all seeing eye
in peril and disgrace
harvest in your conscious lies
the truth beyond it’s face

verse II
read the papers hear the songs
of panic and deceit
the sovereign, long forgotten still
struck blind by hate and greed

chorus
end the silence of ignorant bliss
and don’t you dare deny
open your mind and break the spell
heed absolution’s cry

focus all your strenght within
an endless thunderstorm
fight the shadows oppressive touch
or hope will soon be gone

verse III
banish the insanity
of systems wrought to rule
snap out of all the mindless voids
hypnotic, vain and cruel

verse IV
creative thrived the mind of man
beyond the wheels of time
yet now consumed the spirit dies
beneath the silver dime

chorus
end the silence of ignorant bliss
and don’t you dare deny
open your mind and break the spell
heed absolution’s cry

focus all your strenght within
an endless thunderstorm
fight the shadows oppressive touch
or hope will soon be gone

Ballad of the Need

Ballad of the Need

Songtext für Tendonitis – Ballad of the Need

verse I
passion and compassion, selfless need
center of the world, in your sleep
wanted, needed, found, claimed and kept
used and broken heavy regret

bridge I
can you feel the need
filling all your nodes
can you feel the leech
feeding off your soul

chorus
your spirit gets emptied, day by day
less and less of you to stay
your soul dries out
out of the way
less and less of you to stay

alternate chorus (dropped)
darling, darling, baby don’t despair
possibilities everywhere
darling, darling, baby don’t deny
my love for you will never die

verse II
mindless thought adrift, and hard to find
everyone around you is blind
laughter in the air, brimming with need
filling every edge of your soul

bridge II
can you feel the burn
leaving you behind
every one around you
is blind

chorus
your spirit gets emptied, day by day
less and less of you to stay
your soul dries out, out of the way
less and less of you to stay

Stormreaper

Stormreaper

Songtext für Tendonitis – Stormreaper

verse I
proud eagle fly’s with falsened flag
he’s ruling like a king
the phoenician princess lies idly by
and spreads her legs for him

her children, crying in despair
are still forced to obey
their granary shows threatening tilt
they don’t know what else to do or say

a great revolution is ready to sprout
it’s coming soon, there is no doubt
justice is calling, is taking it’s route

verse III
they poke the great bear with a stick
until he won’t take it no more
and lashes out in anger with
his mighty prank for nuclear war

phoenician whore been bought with ease
who pays the piper calls the tune
and reaching out in all their greed
they ride us blindly to our doom

it’s coming soon, it’s almost about
a great revolution is ready to sprout
it’s coming soon, there is no doubt
justice is calling, is taking it’s route

outro
they who sow wind
shall reap the whirlwind
they who sow wind
shall reap the storm

chorus
it’s coming soon, it’s almost about
a great revolution is ready to sprout
it’s coming soon, there is no doubt
justice is calling, is taking it’s route

they who sow wind
shall reap the whirlwind
they who sow wind
shall reap the storm

Ship of Fools

money is the root of evil

spin the wheel of fortune calling
out your dreams for all to hear
roll the dice of destiny to

can you see the downward spiral
spinning out of your control
can you hear the demon whisper
soothing lies into your soul

 

Tendonitis

Clandestine

Songtext für Tendonitis – Clandestine

introverse I
burning legion in disguise
hiding in plain sight
they know that you are powerless
they know about your darkest secrets

verse I
they find you when you’re hidden
they sell your dreams before you know
they vanquish without touch
they close the collar more and more

verse II
they poison all your rivers
your forests fall to their demands
they’re showing no regret
their master-plan it knows no end

chorus
come and catch us, come along
come and find us, all you know is wrong

introverse II
money, information, power
controlled by far to few
give bread and games to the people
divide, conquer and rule

verse III
they feed you sweet, sweet venom
it tastes so good in it’s disguise
this fucking drug addiction
your barren offspring pays the price

verse IV
they turn you into puppets
they wash your brain with every breath
they kill your love with greed
and drench your soul in fears of death

chorus
come and catch us, come along
come and find us, all you know is wrong

interlude
make yourself free
free of the fear
free of the pain
free of their lies

make yourself free
free of the greed
free of the need
free of their lies

chorus
come and catch us, come along
come and find us, all you know is wrong
