about

The Divine Anthropocene

The Divine Anthropocene is a collection of songs about mankind and all its challenges and problems such as social inequality, intolerance, war and the exploitation of nature. Topics with high relevance maybe especially in our present times. The term anthropocene stands for the proposed current geological epoch which is characterized by human influence on the earths ecosystem. Thus the album title refers to the arrogance and pride of the human being seeing itself as the superior race and disregarding its own imperfection – haughtiness comes before the fall!

Track Name: Babel A.D.
In times of anger and despair
no one seems to dare

The die is cast, the leaders left their thrones
How shall we define the new?

Ruins, fragments of the dead
Pictures fading away
All growing cracks in the surface
Will make empires fall

The machine is eating up its ground
A filthy rotten sound

The storm is near, we harvest what we saw
Prosperous, sovereign

Ruins, fragments of the dead
Stories fading away
All growing cracks in the surface
Will make empires fall

Reaching higher and higher
Towards the sun
Burning my eyes until the fall

The drums are constantly pounding
The soil is bleeding black
Shadows around me are growing tall
Track Name: Ritual Highway
Possessed by false dreams
I've condemned myself to death
Playing my part in this evil scheme
is how I'll draw my final breath

Like in the stories of the wars before
with people dying in the mud
So must I now relive this farce once more
and pay the price in my own blood
In this place history repeats itself
leading us down a path towards our doom
whichever way we try to choose

Possessed by false dreams
I've condemned myself to death
Playing my part in this evil scheme
is how I'll draw my final breath

Laughing the absurd in its face
alienating yet an alien
turning my eyes away from the abyss
I can not grasp the depth I see

So must I now relive this farce once more
and pay the price in my own blood
In this place history repeats itself
leading us down a path towards our doom

Possessed by false dreams
I've condemned myself to death
Playing my part in this evil scheme
is how I'll draw my final breath
Track Name: Wisdom Hunters
I´ve been travelling so long
Been to places no one knows
Always searching, on the run
Borders are floating, nations gone.

Timeless passenger,
eternally seeking for light.
For centuries and millennials,
earthling’s delusional fate.

Years and years are passing by
Leaving homes for finding the new

Endless journey for enlightenment
Dying for wisdom until the end

Leaving a part behind!
Reborn again!
What is identity!
Create something new!

Timeless passenger,
eternally seeking för light.
For centuries and millenials,
eathlings delusional fate.
Track Name: Doom Witch
Dust spreading everywhere
Like gas replaced the air
Doom Witch's brew begun to boil
It reeks of naked sulphur dreams

Doom Witch!
Take me closer to the moon
Doom Witch!
Give me some more brew
Now she's taken me to places that you've never seen
Just imagine what she would do to you, do to me

Dust spreading everywhere
Like gas replaced the air
Doom Witch's brew begun to boil
It reeks of naked desert soil

Doom Witch!
It's burning in my chest
Doom Witch!
How much more is left?
Having chest pains I'm about to die
Her laughter's the last thing in my mind

Dust spreading everywhere
Like gas replaced the air
Doom Witch's brew begun to boil
It reeks of naked sulphur dreams
Now what would the listener do?
Please give me some more of that brew
Track Name: Novemberdimma
När undergången, undergång är nära
Kräver jag, kräver jag ett svar
Befinner jag mig, befinner jag mig på jorden?
Vad ska vi ta oss, vad ska vi ta oss till?

När allt står still, kommer vi att förstå
Hur kunde detta, kunde detta ske?
Befinner jag mig, befinner jag mig på jorden?
När undergången, undergången är här

Viska gärna något som får mig att stå ut
Låt något annat vara sant

Berätta gärna en saga
Som får mig att försvinna
Som i en kall novemberdimma
Om en plats är trygg och stilla

Viska gärna något som får mig att stå ut
Låt något annat vara sant

Viska gärna något som får mig att stå ut
Se till så att allt blir som förut
Allt blir som förut
Track Name: Utopia out of Sight
Utopia out of sight

Children's innocent eyes
Unable to see behind
Society´s unequal and absurd kind
Unequal and absurd kind

Do not ask me
To watch all this tragedy
The vision of Utopia is fading away
Can´t you see?

I wish I could hide
Wake up and be blind
For what´s surrounding me
Is eroding my mind

Walking through the streets
Decline and hope side by side
Global projections locally intertwined
intertwined

Postmodern civilized world
So many unfullfilled hopes
Where is the awakening call
I can´t hear

OOHHH!!! AAAAHHH!!!


I wish I could hide
Wake up and be blind
For what´s surrounding me
Is eroding my mind
