Mind 04:49
Delusions, fake emotions struggle for vision time There's no more controversion, because it's all so unkind We know we only have to keep our head up high But who are you to judge the apathy of live and die? So why do we live our lives in pain? Why do we spend our time in vain? It's all here for nothing The dying of the mind Hoohaa, we live for passion, passion to be free But you should watch your unfaithful attitude it's so sickening to me It's time to face the conflict, the conflict of body and mind It's time we change mentality or we stay ever blind So why do we live our lives in pain? Why do we spend our time in vain? It's all here for nothing The dying of the mind Hoohaa, we live for passion, passion to be free A strain on the tension we must hold so anxiously Hoohaa, we live for passion, passion to be free, o no Hoohaa, we live for passion, passion to be free Believe in life is something we must bear eternally Hoohaa So why do we live our lives in pain? Why do we spend our time in vain? It's all here for nothing The dying of the mind

Error 02:53
What do you think you're doing with all these bad thoughts on your mind? Life is much too beautiful If only we could find it in your mind Get me to another place Your will cannot resist it The flames are crawling to your body You fall back on your knees for justice Oh no, the knife cuts deeper than you would have guessed Protection is now imminent But where do you think you'll find it? What do you think you're doing with all these bad thoughts on your mind? Life is much too beautiful If only we could find it in your mind The answer to all the questions Nobody seems to care Living in small and selfish worlds We are all separated Oh no, you will feel the pain It's all around you But you close your eyes, why bother? What do you think you're doing Life is much too beautiful

Caedes 04:11
Just you see what the feeling is like to betray science and the reason of life For all counts sound of mind So cut that sh*t; don't believe it's fine There's one truth and it's not in god Higher powers, know it's fraud So use your brains don't be insane Combat lies, that's the game Astrology, don't f*ck with me Your mind is free, just follow me Oh can't you see, believe in me You come with me, you follow me Paranormal activities to fool dumb extremities We know better and we know worse So why should we go to church? Religion makes you diseased Just think and get your mind appeased Intelligence means released We are one and we are pleased Let them drop, don't let them show Just get on top, not down below Oh can't you see, believe in me You come with me, you follow me

Hard Times 04:50
Try to stay alive, you know It's your life to stay alive For you remain reluctant to the voice of god Who says no-one is to fight the system Find the line Seek intentions Your heart is cold Strong belief We need no trust Apprehensive We compromise No relief Carry the cross Delicious burden To analise human life Electro brain is taking over We surrender, feelingless Try to stay alive, you know It's your life to stay alive For you remain reluctant to the voice of god Who says no-one is to fight the system Tracking slaves I'm number one Sound waves The damage done To senseless lives and fading masses Of stupid people who disregard Our love is strong Feel its power Minds attacked and neurolised Discipline, no counteraction A computer's dream of hard times Try to stay alive, you know It's your life to stay alive For you remain reluctant to the voice of god Who says no-one is to fight the system

Circles of damage It fires too 'cause no-one hurts and no-one will do For your reaction time is falling It is falling to the descent point of your luxurious lives Your live that shattered all of the good points All the bad points for survival, those were not compulsory for you You make convulsions Have power to control Spasms, spasmatic movements Should go Circles of damage It fires too And feel it creeping inside your head 'cause no-one can survive it That is not compulsory For your reaction time is falling It is falling to the descent point of your luxurious lives Your lives that shattered all of the good points for you You make convulsions Have power to control Spasms, spasmatic movements Should go

The time has come and we feel free Computing and machinery For comfort slaughter the defender Oh it really can all seem so tender The final trust has stopped to be Meaningful of injury Technology will make the day Just listen what it has to say... to me Now hear the nation spread the words Illusions that it can't get hurt We all can still be so confused Deranged, distorted or abused Diseases should be made extinct, hey We have the power just to do that Fight for future and for life Science is your only knife... to me To me

Ad Mortem 03:30
Quo usque tandem abutere, Catilina, patientia nostra? Quam diu etiam furor iste tuus nos eludet? Quem ad finem sese effrenata iactabit audacia? Nihilne te nocturnum praesidium Palati, urbis vigiliae, nihil timor populi, nihil concursus bonorum omnium, nihil hic munitissimus habendi senatus locus, nihil horum ora voltusque moverunt? Patere tua consilia non sentis? Constrictam iam horum omnium scientia teneri coniurationem tuam non vides? Quid proxima, quid superiore nocte egeris, ubi fueris, quos convocaveris, quid consilii ceperis, quem nostrum ignorare arbitraris? O tempora, o mores!

Quid Taces? 03:36
Recognise me finally You know that I watch you, that you seek what I undo, I undo what you feed I know you've been together, with all your companions of the night, of the acid rain you have to spoil your lives with There's no more disguise There's no more escape I will find you this time You may try to run You may try to hide Are you still denying? Quid taces? I'll prove it, if you deny it I'll see that you'll hear it For you're all here present now, all the ones that were with you What's this world you're living in? What's this nation worth for you? What's this nation worth for you? For you Quid taces?

Come with me into the coming picture Walls of concrete and fascist lies freedom of speech and racial mixture We don't care, we don't care? Come with me into the coming picture The image of truth in desert towns Extermination, new world disorder We don't care, we don't care? We compromise We get it wrong We fertilise For a right-hand's song

Manslayer 04:22
There is a manslayer, marching through the fields Nothing will stop it from spreading the disease Destruction of man is what it's fighting for It's killing for pleasure, no way we can ignore There is a manslayer It smells the flesh Starts the fire Extends the heat Controls desire There is a manslayer Smells the flesh Smells the flesh There is a manslayer It smells the flesh Starts the fire Extends the heat Controls desire Commandos locked Seeks the target Inferno shocks Blind off Starts the fire Controls desire

NOISE Your mind is conscience Your lies are memories Don't shout Don't shout Don't shout There's too much noise in here There's too much noise in here There's hate for reason Anarchy to the machine You come You come You come But don't come in here Don't come in here Your peace is green With long hair Live like Neanderthal Don't shout Don't shout Don't shout There's too much noise in here There's too much noise in here Intelligence is the keyword, against deterioration of mankind Let no drugs rule the fire, that's installed right in your mind There's too much noise There's too much noise in here Intelligence is the keyword, against deterioration of mankind Let no drugs rule the fire, that's installed right in your mind JUMP TO NOWHERE Standing in the door Don't know what I'm looking for This is the real thing Oh this is the real thing Standing in the door That's what I am looking for This is the real thing Oh, this is the real thing Red light is burning Gonna take the final step towards you I jump to nowhere I jump to nowhere Red light's out Taken the final step towards you I jump to nowhere I jump to nowhere 331 332 333 Parachute open!

about

Quod Erat Demonstrandum was the result of the cooperation between Pro Patria and the German Celtic Circle record label. It became a sort of compilation of ten years of Pro Patria, featuring some of the old songs such as Manslayer and Jump to Nowhere (both already composed in 1988) all the way to new songs especially composed for this album (Mind, Error and Quid Taces). Therefore the evolution of the band is quite audible and shows how they eventually created their own, specific sound. The production of the cd lasted a full seven months and due credit must be given to Marc Schellekens, the professional studio engineer who skillfully sculpted the broad and complex Pro Patria sound.

Unfortunately, Celtic Circle declared bankruptcy at the moment that the cds were being printed and therefore they never made it out of the factory. Pro Patria still tried to offer the finished cd to other labels but failed because electro/EBM was as good as dead in the nineties and because they refused to accept compromises, e.g. by making their music sound more like popular techno. Therefore "Quod Erat Demonstrandum" was only produced on a very small scale and only about eighty home-printed cdrs made their way to the public during the band's last couple of gigs.
