Thanks:

HAMMERFORCE would like to thank:
Sergey Fomichov (for beautiful artwork and support), Kate Sergeeva (for support, ideas and contribution), Anton Shostakovskiy (our former bass player), Ilya Lemur, Andrey Shpitalnik, Viktor Minkin, Artem and other vocalists that we tried to collaborate with, Nikolay Fomichev (for some ideas), Aleksandr Orlov (for posing for artwork), and everybody who somehow helped us during creation of this album (sorry if we forgot somebody)

Special thanks for their notable support to: Andrey Zvonarev (from Beorn - promising new Power Metal band!), Steven Weeks, Eddie Risdal (and his band Legacy Of Emptiness - check it out!), Bas Van Den Berg, Hendrik Mießner and Nataly "Ziry" Menitskaya \m/

Nikita personally thanks: Kate Sergeeva (for love, understanding and support), Ilya Kapralov (for being the good guy to deal with), my parents and brothers (for their patience and support), Allen Carr, Mikhail Litvak and Gleb Arkhangelsky (for their excellent ideas and books), Kjell-Ivar Aarli (from Legacy Of Emptiness for kind words, and info), all great Metal (and not so Metal) bands that inspired me, among them: Raintime, Kovenant, 2 Times Terror, Helloween, Gamma Ray, Twilightning, Lost Horizon, MyGrain, Labyrinth, Athena, Masterplan, In Flames, Dimmu Borgir, DJ BoBo, Masterboy (please forgive me last two, hehe)
Live your own life, and no more templates for us all!

Ilya Kapralov's thanx to:
Nikita Merzlyakov - for his great contribution in our music, for his laborious work on music through the whole album. Really great work!
Kate Sergeeva - for efforts on texts and support of our band! Awesome!
Alexandr Zhuchihin - for his implicit help in composing, during rehearsals. Sometimes it’s very necessary to have a person, who can test what is composed already, play with you and make an advise to change riff or note, even a little, but this may be very cool finally!
Of course, great thanx to other members of our group – Dmitriy “Ian Breeg” Yanovsky and Ilya Mamaev.

Dmitriy: I would like to thank my family and my beloved one Darya for keeping the faith in me during the whole process. I would also like to say thanks to my band-mates, who did incredible job on their own and of course we need to thank Nikita for getting it all together and making the record as good as it can be.

And last but not least: greatest thanks and loud hails go to all our fans!

Hammerforce endorses... nothing! =)
Just use what you really like and not what is advertised!

Track Name: I Am I
Like vampire from movie
I live in dark eternal night
Surrounded by humans
I try to keep them all in sight

Don't you see that I'm coming
You'd better start running
Like never before
One wrong step and you're madman
One more and you're deadman
It's my little war

I am your most terrifying foe
Cause you can't control you anymore

I am I, you are me
I am you, and we are we
But the question is: who rules over who?
You are me, and I am you
And still we can't get it through
Which one rules over who: saint or sinner?
Shepherd or the sheep?

Living in the darkness of
Your mind's insanity
Making my way out of here
Want to become free

I wish I could, but I can't
I wish I would, but I would not
I know this day will not come and...

Listen, what's that?!
Track Name: Templates for All
Far from the teenage
Still want to be unique
But there are no options at all

And since we are born
They try determinate
What is your place and your goal

But I'll do my best just not to fall
Don't wanna be someone's mindless doll
Keep things in the places they should be
Don't even try to stop me

Rise up and leave all your doubts behind
Tear down the screenplay they're trying to write
Most precious treasure is your own soul
But they have templates for us all
(For us all)

Find yourself a job
Not the one you really like
(Job you don't like)

Find yourself a person
Not the one you really love
(Person you don't love)

It's not the way we all must follow
And fight your horrors
Listen to me

No more templates for us all

What is your place and your goal?
Track Name: Wasted
My time is wasted
I became nothing
And after all I still ignore
The voice of reason in my head

I know I could've reached for the sun
So high, if only I had tried that before
Coming to the point of no return
From where there is no other way
Then to let myself regret
And not to forget

Of what I become!

I'm a spineless worm
Left without home
Just a useless piece
Of meat

Now, please, take your seat
And relax a bit
Jester's on a stage
Hey, it's me!

Can we really get what we all deserve?
Should you be a slave or should you be served?

I don't know
You do

Time to make up your mind
Time to leave all doubts behind

No! I am your sloth, and I've heard enough
Listen to me!
You just need your TV, and your cozy seat
No need to rush - hush...

You just need your TV, just need your TV, just need your TV

My time is wasted
I am still nothing
Can you imagine how to live without fantasies and dreams?

I know I could've reached for the sun
But
I'm a spineless worm
Left without home

Coming to the point of
Point of no return
Point of no return
From where there is no other way

Then to let myself regret
And not to forget

By those... Who did not win the stake!
Track Name: Mass Media
My time hasn't come
It has just begun
I don't wanna bow
That's all what I know

Wish I can find you
And stab from behind you
But there’s just one thing

You are mass media
Mindless and thus merciless
You are mass media
I'm to save us from this mess

They want us to obey
Want us to be paying for
Wanna more

Stop! I said that's enough!
Hear the bell rings for you
Make it through

Before it's too late

Corn flakes are good
For your
Blood circulation system

Yes, of course, you're right
But I don't trust in lies
Give me back
My mind
Go find another one
I told you I don't
I don't trust in lies

(Save your soul)

Millions of people're bounded to their leather couches
And they can do nothing by their own will
Roots of mass media monster
Carved deep into their souls
And the only chance to become free again
To release the chains
Is to...

Pain is in your eyes
You need to be strong
Raise your spirit high
You need to be strong

No more TV-set
And no more fast-food
No more wicked lies

Keep your body fit
It's all for your good
Buy yourself a suit
It's all for your good

Listen to the crowd
And shout it back
"I'm not in your pack!"
Track Name: Fugitive
Please, cast away my sorrow and pain
Let me inside, I'm going insane
Black seems so white and white turns to black
Remnants of past are right behind my back

Down the river of repentance I follow alone
Arrogance led me on to this path
That is what they would say

God, you tell me why, oh, why
Saving a child is a crime
Are we all blind?
Are we blind or not?

I killed a man who had tried
To murder my only child

Now we have to run and hide
Two fugitives we are

Blood on my hands
Won't ever be washed away
Damned for all time
Is it right? Is it right?
It's not! It's not! It's not! No! No!

Tracked us at last, now our hope is gone
Captured us both and there's nowhere to run
Just like a beast is stalking his prey
Left me with nothing, I can only pray
Track Name: Earth Is on Trial
I'm lost in the city
Of the broken hopes
Misery, agony, all around
Misery, agony, all around
Life is gonna stop

Cause we've used all our pre-paid time
And the earth won't take no more
There's no "us" - there's just "mine"
And I doubt these things are worth fighting for

Now, the earth is on trial, you see
It's not like we all are used to live

In the darkness of our lunatic minds
Grows a feeling that it's the end of the line
Now, thy shall be done!
Take a tumble and it won't be fall
Change yourself and you will save your soul
Now, thy shall be done!

Rearrangements have begun
Light of hope is almost gone

Fools! Your time is over!
No salvation for the sinners!
Prepare yourself for eternal pain!

And I know that you can not see me
But at least try to believe me
Together we can do it better
And save the Earth
Track Name: No Place for the Old Men
I was thrown away
Like a useless old broken toy
As you can see, we're all getting off
To the trash bin or even worse

Surrender to your fate and forgive
You loved them more than life but they forgot

How you protected them
From the nightmares they got
When they were young

Afraid of the darkness
And the monsters
Hiding under their bed

You showed them the way and now its so sad
They abandoned you when everything is already done

No place for the old men!

I needed you so but you've turned away
And at this very time my life casts astray

Pain slips down through my veins
And my blood now is not that warm
In our age when authority reigns
Old people can’t stay in for long

When everything is already done...
Track Name: Access Denied
Access denied...

Racks of equipment have crowded the place
(No way)
What's going on?

Connection is set
All packets are sent
I'm on my own
No time to waste
All systems engaged
I'm on my own

What if our lives are encrypted in code?
Tested...
And then being sold!

I lost my mind...

Access denied!
Paradise blackened the gates
Access denied!
Pray till you die for your sins
Access denied!
Merciless virus destroys all what we love

I don't wanna to find this world
Shattered into smallest pieces
I wanna to help to save it
From the danger and from anger
If we do not release our minds
And understand the problems all in one
Then we shall face the judgement
And redeemer will not show up
No, no...

Faster than bullets
They are gonna get you
The story's at end
And now I am lost inside the paradise of the sin

Gathering's begun
Judgement will be done
Lost and tied
We are waiting

Access denied... Access denied...

Access granted.
