    1. Born Dead, Buried Alive

    In another dimension beyond the twilight
    our souls waiting to be reborn
    after a lifetime of impending sin
    a new life is about to begin...


    Born dead, buried alive


    2. Eraser

    Here it comes to subject the terror you forgot
    No memories from the past
    The unexplainable starts to appear
    As your sub-consciousness begins to come back again

    Reality fades away
    You try to find a solution
    ---Here it's coming now, indecision
    ---You're free but you can't see through the confusion

    (Chorus)
    There is no time
    No time to regret
    The eraser's coming for your life
    You got to run
    Stay away from the light
    The eraser's here to twist your mind

    Feel your soul connected to the universe
    The solstice is complete
    They controlled your thoughts
    You will remember now, what it's all about

    ---Twist the end around, violation
    It's burning deep and twisting under your skin
    It scares you forever
    The proof you will find in your dreams

    (Chorus)


    3. Stillborn

    I'm standing in the circle of humans
    ...
    ..I see the circles
    I am unable to flee

    ... arised in the sky
    This is the way it feels to die
    I have to search, the rest will follow
    There's nothing left but my soul so hollow

    (Chorus)
    I'm floating in the air
    Slowly fading away from the earth
    ...
    ...

    I've got to stay awake
    but my eyelids...
    I feel like a parasite
    What will happen to us?
    Will we ever see...
    Will we ever return?
    Will we ever survive?
    It's a human curse

    Final destination unknown
    Humanity on the go
    This is the end
    Another beginning

    I feel so alone
    Like a part of me has died
    I feel so weak
    I'm falling apart inside

    (Chorus)

    ...
    They come to haunt me now
    I swallow my pride, and the tears I’ve cried
    Will never…
    Tell me why


    4. Slave to the Parasites

    ... anything else
    or maybe I'm dead, both trapped in a cage
    Alone in my body now a shell deserted or is this the end of my age
    Drowning into the bitter end
    Is the thing’s I cannot avoid
    Crawling in a circle of hell
    They won't let me exist on my own

    (Chorus)
    Slave to the parasites
    I can't get away
    They won't leave me be
    Slave to the parasites
    Here they come again
    There is nowhere to hide

    ...
    I'm all alone
    ...
    ...

    The night is fallen
    Another commit around the bend
    They use me as an experiment
    Words I don't understand

    Crashed into the bitter end
    Is the thing’s I cannot avoid
    ..drowning in a circle of hell..
    They won't let me exist on my own

    (Chorus)

    They won't get me this time
    I can hear them coming closer
    I'm not afraid to die
    But I'd rather die than someone control my mind

    (Chorus)


    5. New World

    Can't you see them coming
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ...
    and praise the new...

    (Chorus)
    The new world is here to wipe out our lives
    The new world we can't survive
    The new world is here to wipe out our lives
    The new world does not include us



    6. The Abyss

    Born dead in flames
    For my beliefs
    They will take me to hell
    One step closer to death
    I release my anger to be free

    Feel alone again (free the lord again)

    I feel no guilt for the lost ones
    I stab, I stab again
    ...nothing soon will be
    I look around and see all the bloody gore

    Feel alone again (Free the lord again)


    7. Dead By Dawning

    I woke up screaming from a nightmare
    That seemed so real
    A horrified vision of the skyline
    Covered up in steel
    I stumble outside, everything around me had changed
    I could not believe my eyes
    I stare into a world re-arranged

    My heart was pounding faster
    Am I awake or still in a dream
    The vision of final disaster
    ..?The vision of empty dreams?

    (Chorus)
    I see a dead by dawning
    A lethal encounter of the first degree
    I see a dead by dawning
    No mercy for you, No mercy for me
    I see a dead by dawning
    A lethal encounter of the first degree
    It's the end for you , It's the end for me

    The world is silent
    Only the life from above can be seen
    ...
    ...
    It's not of this world
    …our senses?
    Something within me tells me
    It's the end of humanity

    My heart was pounding faster
    Am I awake or still in a dream
    The vision of final disaster
    ?The vision of empty dreams?

    (Chorus)

    Released from this nightmare
    Let me wake up to find the world I knew
    But then I see the faces around me
    I realize we are the chosen few

    (Chorus)

    8. The Departure

    I came back to life
    Naked and tied to the floor
    In the corner of my eyes
    I saw them coming through the door

    All is black
    All is white
    I open my eyes and face the airport lights

    (Chorus)
    I stare into the eyes of eternity
    I've seen what no man's ever seen
    I stare into the eyes of eternity
    I've been where no man's ever been

    ...
    ...
    ...
    as I look around
    I realize I'm all alone
    ...
    ...Chills me to the bone

    Suddenly rising up in the air
    My mind was burning
    …I said farewell to the bodies their stealing

    All is black
    All is white
    I open my eyes and face the airport lights

    (Chorus)

    …
    I’ll fit right back into the dream
    But something here just keeps me awake
    And I’m cut wide open
    Maybe they search for my soul
    This is more than a human can take

    And don’t tell me I'm dreaming
    I know what I saw
    I’ll feel alive like never before

    (Chorus)

    9. War Within

    When you are born
    That's when I died
    It took to long to realize
    I am white, you’re black
    I’m slowly turning grey
    Like disease, you’ll break me down to die

    You’re no king
    I’m no fool
    I’m you’re eternal…?

    (Chorus)
    God, let me regain control
    God, let me reign in my own soul
    God, let my life return
    God, I'll do anything to see you burn

    …
    Fueled by endless hate
    How can I win this war
    This war against myself

    You’re no king
    I’m no fool

    (Chorus)

    …In my deicide
    …Is suicide
    …how will I know you where full of…

    You’ll trick my mind
    You’ll lead me blind
    …
    There's no escape
    ...
    You're my destiny

    You’ll turn me on
    You’ll turn me off
    Like I'm a fucking machine
    You’ll count me in
    You’ll throw me out
    Now all my thoughts are…?

    (Chorus)

    This is what I've got so far, any help would be grateful, soon I'll post my interpretations of "Abducted - Catch22"

    They look good but you changed a few parts on the Abyss that were right. The begining is "tortured in flame" not "born dead in flame" and the second part that's off is "one step closer to death." I think its "one step closer to Chaos." I could be mistaken but I know it isn't "death." After all if you're already in hell how could one be closer to death?

    If i remember right, he is the swedish studio man behind Dissection's recording of both album and the vocalist or guitarist (or both?) of Edge Of Sanity. (see more on
    www.swano.com, if i remmer right)
    I'm full disagree with the fact that he have done the 90% of lyrics of new album of Hypocrisy.
    I may understand if he contribute to the album with 10% of lyrics, but the 90% no. I think that this is the only thing that i absolutely don't like in this last album. But Peter have sayed that this was an experiment, and we must respect all his decision and parallel roads.

    Of course i'm full agree with you inverted about the rightness of the old The Abyss lyric.

    However thank you very much Carcass for your work! Great work!

    PS: inverted, are you the tabber guy of The Fourth Dimension guitar parts???

    Dan Swanö is the man behind Edge of Sanity, Crimson I and Crimson II are two Edge of Sanity's masterpieces.
    Crimson I is 40 minutes of swedish melodic death metal and Crimson II is 43 minutes long. Dan did both the music and production for em both.
    Dan is multitalented and in my opinion way better than Peter.
    Dan plays guitars, bass, drums (Bloodbath amongst others), keyboards and he's an awesome producer.
    Other famous bands of his: Dan Swanö - Moontower (a complete solo album, proggy death metal project with awesome keyboards),
    Nightingale (prog rock)
    Pan.Thy.Monium
    Infestdead

    www.swano.com is a good start to begin and his board here at UM. He posts quite a lot.

    Hail 4th dimension! I am indeed The guy who tabbed out the fouth dimension album. In fact, I have about 20-30 tabs done for Hypocrisy. As well as the lyrics. My most recent tab is for Adjusting the Sun. Check it out at: www.metaltabs.com it is in powertab format and will launch soon at www.powertabs.net there is also a number of other Hypocrisy powertabs there as well. Currently I'm in the middle of tabbing out Eraser. I agree though, the old stuff is vastly superior. T.F.D album in paticular.

    Hi everyone..

    This is what I sent to Peter. I guess he tweaked it a bit (maybe??)
    I'll see if I can find the other stuff at home:

    Born Dead Buried Alive.



    In the dimension beyond the twilight

    A soul is waiting to be reborn

    After a lifetime of repenting sin

    A new life is about to begin



    But something went wrong that fateful night

    And the cosmos went berserk

    A fusion of the heavens

    And the sphere where the dark ones lurk



    Hell grows stronger; your soul is at stake

    You’re granted life only to die

    Dscend into the black.



    Born Dead Buried Alive

    Standing at the gate waiting for the dark to arrive

    Born Dead Buried Alive

    The army of the undead

    Now possess your blackened soul



    You’ll never know life on earth

    Doomed to forever walk the land beyond

    When the final day arise, you twisted self will rise

    The dead shall inherit the earth



    You belong to the fires of Hades

    You get your lifeblood from the river Styx

    Hell in all its glory

    Will forever be your dwelling place



    The restless dead eagerly awaits

    The day of maturity, the end of mankind

    Crack the surface of the earth

    And let there be hell.



    Born Dead Buried Alive

    Standing at the gate waiting for the dark to arrive

    Born Dead Buried Alive

    The army of the undead

    Now possess your blackened soul

    I found this aswell...
    These are my originals...but It mighty help a little...

    THE WAR WITHIN



    You turn me on; you turn me off, like I’m a fucking machine

    You tuck me in; you throw me out, now all my thoughts are obscene

    You life me up, you wear me down, and throw my life down the drain

    You bring my joy and then bring me pain, all my emotions are slain



    You tricked my mind, you made me blind, but finally I can see

    There’s no escape. Cerebral rape, you are my destiny.

    You’ll never die, I’ll never live, and I’ll never be alone

    You are the master, I am your slave, and you always hold the throne



    Two persons caught inside the same body

    Two auras clashing to the bitter end

    You’re the one thing in this life I can’t control

    It’s too fucking bad you’re a part of my soul



    When you were born, that’s when I died, it took too long to realize

    I am the white, you are the black, and I’m slowly turning grey

    Like a disease you break me down and silence my cries

    You are the king, I am the fool I’m your eternal prey.



    What I create you desecrate, Fuelled by endless hate

    How can I win this war, this war against myself?

    If I decide, it’s suicide that will be my final move

    How will know that you won’t follow to the other sky?



    Two persons caught inside the same body

    Two auras clashing to the bitter end

    You’re the one thing in this life I can’t control

    It’s too fucking bad you’re a part of my soul



    Die! let me regain control

    Die! Let my life return

    Die! Let me reign in my own soul

    Die! I’d do anything to see you burn!!

    Great! Mr. Swano in person! :)

    The Lyrics are fuckin great and poetical! But as you can see, i haven't loved much the fact
    that Peter has done 90% of Lyrics the last album of a man that aren't he :)
    We are fucking attached at Peter's music as much as the Lyrics.
    But for this time, i think that all Hypofans can pass over on this :) ; also because
    the lyrics are very great (and he have however a little bit retouched its structure :) ).

    Of course is the first time that Peter get the great part of lyrics from another person.
    Why and in what way this appen? Have asked he to you, or the contrary?
    Tell us more please, if you may/want !

    And don't you think that Pete may turn a little bit angry for you have published the lyrics? :)
    I hope no of course.

    If you can put on forum the other lyrics, i'd like to read new world and the departure lyrics!
    Apart the lyrics, have you contribute with music in the album?
    And the titles of all songs are also your?

    PS: Hey man your fuckin studios sounds very very great in Dissection and Opeth! Great work man!
    I haven't listened Edge Of Sanity because i believe that EOF aren't extreme music.
    I will buy first man. I hope to hear a fine melodic death metal (swedish :) )

    PPS: thanks Dan for the lyrics, finally tonight i can scream like a beast the right text
    of war within :)
