"He seeks distance to change his perspective
In freedom and seclusion he arranges his thoughts
Strength and power he regains in nature’s shielding bosom
In vivid silence and familiar remoteness he can listen to his heart
Yet he experienced that from no wayfare you return the same
He knows that nothing will change until you change yourself
And therefore every revolutionary is a wanderer."

The Loss Of Fury

This is the loss of fury, this is your silent demise

"The song is about preserving some of your (positive) anger and rage instead of being completely numbed by the daily struggle and grind. Don’t give up. Anger is a very precious emotion and the loss of fury is one of the symptoms of the gradual conformation and standardization of our society." (Heaven Shall Burn 2016)

Bring The War Home

There is no war to end all wars

"It tells the story of a young person (which could be a man or a woman) that was sent to war under the motto of protecting his/her “country and family”. They come back home broken, traumatized and disabled, feeling betrayed by warmongers like politicians and the defense industry. Finally they realize that the ones he/she wanted to protect would have needed them most at home." (Heaven Shall Burn 2016)

Passage Of The Crane

And unlike me you knew, there were no gods to save me

"The song and its lyrics were inspired by the story of Sadako Sasakis. The crane works as a symbol for peace and harmony." (Heaven Shall Burn 2016)

They Shall Not Pass

No light of dawn will shine upon their false red flags

"The ‘Battle Of Cable Street’ that happened in London in 1936, an event fairly unknown in Germany. The British fascist leader Mosley and his supporters, the ‘Blackshirts’, were put into their place by the residents of the London East End. It is a really nice example of how you can make a change when you unite and put aside your ideological and religious differences. It is a victory over self-proclaimed leaders, who are trying to misuse “the welfare and opinion of the people” in order to strengthen their power and the power of their supporters." (Heaven Shall Burn 2016)

Downshifter

I seek salvation in the distance, leaving the turmoil of this world

"It is a song about escaping into the distance and into silence in order not to fall into despair over the current chaos that is happening in the world. However, the goal is to put your thoughts back into order and regain energy, so that you can attack such changes with renewed vigor. It is definitely not about dropping out just because you can no longer deal with your current situation. It is about the tactical step back that pretty much all great strategists take once in a while, the one that is necessary in order to arrange your formations and thoughts for the next major offensive." (Heaven Shall Burn 2016)

Prey To God

There is a void within the soul of every man

"It seems like most people just need to believe in one or several higher powers – almost like an anatomical predisposition. Since the beginning of time representatives of any kind of religion have abused this tendency in order to manipulate people and get them involved in wars." (Heaven Shall Burn 2016)

Save Me

I will not wait for them to save me from the falling night

"Getting help and inspiration from friends and role models is a true gift. Still, nobody can save you other than yourself." (Heaven Shall Burn 2016)

Corium

Reign of misguided futurists

"Corium is a lava-like mixture that is formed during a nuclear meltdown. Luckily this has only happened three times outside of any laboratories. In the song, corium stands as a symbol for the insanity of the nuclear industry, which is ruthlessly profit-orientated, manipulative and irresponsible for our future. At first sight the use of nuclear power looks like it might have many benefits. Still, would you also buy an elephant and put it up in your living room if you had no idea where to put its droppings?" (Heaven Shall Burn 2016)

Extermination Order

This irate oath we carry in our darkened hearts forever

"It is a song about the Herero and Namaqua genocide in the former German South-West Africa, now Namibia. Until now the German government hasn’t fully taken care of reparations and rehabilitation for the families and descendants." (Heaven Shall Burn 2016)

A River Of Crimson

An Ocean Within Me

"The lyrics were inspired by the son of a good friend of the band who is battling leukemia for the second time. He asked us to write a song about blood, because it is so important and precious. It is not a song about the illness, but rather about the wonder that pumps through our blood vessels." (Heaven Shall Burn 2016)
