In Your Face 06:07
Can never think myself Though individual Can never ask myself It's not original Be cold Stone cold Can never be myself Too unpredictable Can never know myself So unforgivable Be cold Stone cold Gonna throw it in your face Gonna scream all over the place Now that things are not well understood No shelter in my neighbourhood Gonna throw it in your face In your face Always wanted to be a part Not reconcilable Always wanted to be good Too unbelievable Be cold Stone cold Always tried right from the start It's unequivocal Always failed where others stood So unforgettable Be cold Stone cold Gonna throw it in your face Gonna scream all over the place Now that things are not well understood No shelter in my neighbourhood Gonna throw it in your face In your face Something kept me going strong The pleasure principle Something virtuous, always wrong Habitual criminal Be cold Stone cold Something's nagging in my head Psycho analytical Something tells me it's them instead I'm indestructible Be cold Stone cold Gonna throw it in your face Gonna scream all over the place Now that things are not well understood No shelter in my neighbourhood Gonna throw it in your face In your face Can never be myself Too unpredictable Can never know myself So unforgivable

Slowly shed my skin and I feel hungry for a desecrating fury leading man across the waters of an everlasting vow You will not fail You will not bend You will prevail or I will mend You will not fail You will not bend You will prevail or I will fire or I will fire or I will tear your flesh or I will fire I watched you die Kneel before your master Your existence's insignificantly small and at the end I will condemn you for my narcissistic urge

No More 04:08
Expression of reason it's still in this world Worth giving it up because it's all so absurd It's growing on me, it's growing on you It's not what you see, it's what you can do It's growing on me, it's growing on you It's not what you see, one million will do 'cause this life is just a fraction But now it's no more Think you saw a revelation But now it's no more Remission of pain it's all set in your mind Life gets so insane, you're one of a kind Believe that things will change, hard promises made While all you cared for is set ablaze It's growing on me, it's growing on you It's not what you see, it's what you can do It's growing on me, it's growing on you It's no what you see, one million will do 'cause this life is just a fraction But now it's no more Think you saw a revelation But now it's no more In the light of temptation But now it's no more It's growing on me, it's growing on you It's not what you see, it's what you can do It's growing on me, it's growing on you It's no what you see, one million will do 'cause this life is just a fraction But now it's no more Think you saw a revelation But now it's no more

Executioner 05:13
Come, do as you please Consequences never to be had It's just business, you see But I'm sure you understand Debts are to be paid It may be trivial to you now Once the sentence's made The executioner will be coming for us all Aggression, the game is set Keep on raving until you're dead Aggression, last words said The axe is falling, it's falling on you head Do as you're told It's always something of a bore Your blood runs cold You've always said you'd wish for more It gets kind of frightening You didn't hear the final call A bolt of lightning The executioner will be coming for us all Aggression, the game is set Keep on raving until you're dead Aggression, last words said The axe is falling on you head Aggression, the game is on Let's party until you're gone Aggression, it's what you get The axe is falling, it's falling on your head Come, do as you wish Why put up a face that is so sad Comes an end to lavish But I'm sure you understand Prayers don't mean salvation The sound that hammers through a wall Waking up from illusion The executioner will be coming for us all Aggression, the game is set Keep on raving until you're dead Aggression, last words said The axe is falling on you head Aggression, the game is on Let's party until you're gone Aggression, it's what you get The axe is falling, it's falling on your head

Battle cries over wasted fields Choice of blood, what anger feeds Think surrender, your forehead bleeds It just reminds us on what it feeds Determination We've got the world to know Failure's not an option It's too late to go Annihilation We've got the world to burn Failure's not an option It's too late to learn Deafening sighs over a silent corpse Inventing something that almost works The end is coming but there's no fear Socially blinded and nowhere near Determination We've got the world to know Failure's not an option It's too late to go Annihilation We've got the world to burn Failure's not an option It's too late to learn

Running down an endless road The future doesn't look so good Striking for a better world It isn't all well understood It doesn't matter now There isn't anyone who'll help us Realise that the end is nigh There isn't anything that can save us Hiding in your cyberworld of fashion shows and videos It's too late It's too late Situation in dire need No-one's looking at the cause The illusion that a finite Earth will always suffer our growing breed It doesn't matter now There isn't anyone who'll help us Realise that the end is nigh There isn't anything that can save us Hiding in your cyberworld of fashion shows and videos It's too late It's too late There are too many of us It's too late!

Dead-born living and seriously lost Forget giving Keep all you've got Timeless body Don't leave me now Timeless body It works somehow Look at you now Your reason's gone You're oh so pretty You're oh so gritty You're oh so pretty You're oh so gritty Timeless body Don't leave me now Timeless body It works somehow Is it gonna crash down Is it gonna blow up Is it gonna fly like an overweight back-drop Is it gonna crash down Is it gonna blow up Is it gonna fly like an overweight back-drop Here in this land where all ice has gone Grab all you can We're just having fun Timeless body Don't leave me now Timeless body It works somehow Look at you now Your reason's gone You're oh so pretty You're oh so gritty You're oh so pretty You're oh so gritty Timeless body Don't leave me now Timeless body It works somehow Is it gonna crash down Is it gonna blow up Is it gonna fly like an overweight back-drop Is it gonna crash down Is it gonna blow up Is it gonna fly like an overweight back-drop Timeless body Don't leave me now Timeless body It works somehow Timeless body Look at you now

Bent double like beggars under sacks Knock-kneed we turned our backs Our distant rest began to trudge All lame and blind Shells dropping behind Dulce et decorum and we marched right into the deep est Pro Patria mori and we marched all sound asleep Gas! Gas! Helmets just in time Someone yelling in fire or lime The thick green light saw him drowning Helpless sight choking, drowning! Dulce et decorum and we marched right into the deep est Pro Patria mori and we marched all sound asleep You too could pace where we flung him in White eyes in his face sick of sin Hear the blood from corrupted lungs Bitter as cud for the old lie: Dulce et decorum and we marched right into the deep est Pro Patria mori and we marched all sound asleep

Tear it off! 03:49
Dignity, your dignity, you'll not give it up Liberty, your liberty, you'll not give it up Dignity, your dignity, you'll not give it up Liberty, your liberty, you'll not give it up Not property, you're not property Not property, you're not property Not property, you're not property Not property, you're not property Tear it off!

The black city's calling Don't know how to get in My head spinning and stalling I'm staring at the ceiling Looking back at a painful past It's there and you see it Shaken up but it's changing fast You're getting stronger and you feel it Do it! Do it! Stand up while you're living Get it, get it... in your head! The insignificance of time Fall back upon what you know Seems right, but there's something There's knocking on the door below Remember all you've been loving Thinking that you're really great See your face in the mirror Realise that it's all too late Now you see things clearer Do it! Do it! Stand up while you're living Get it, get it... in your head! The insignificance of time

Once there was a hill where we went dancing for a while Enchanted by the distance of the suffering that was mine The days that seemed so short but it was always going to last How was I to know that it would once be part of the past With the death of a friend We were dancing in the knowledge that good time was on our side The world that couldn't touch us yet it was not going to abide You stood so tall and firm yet you were crumbling under my feet Foundations of existence that would yield to other need With the death of a friend One day I came to visit, handn't seen you for a while I'd brought some lovely flowers and I wore a genuine smile The winding road was long and I felt anxiously somehow And there you lay all crushed yet no-one cared about our vow With the death of a friend

about

Pro Patria Canossa, Italy

Belgian origin Pro Patria was founded in 1988 by Peter V. (aka PVC). Out of the collaboration with CCP arose "Quod Erat Demonstrandum" in 1997. Unfortunately, CCP faced bankruptcy and personal trouble meant the end.
In 2017 Peter was invited to play at the Familientreffen festival, which motivated him to produce "Back to Basics". In 2019 Pro Patria released its 3rd full album "Executioner".
