Decency & Integrity Soul within that burning, Be still a moment Still a moment Though it’s answer Little meaning Little relevancy – Perhaps for you; Silence unbroken, And the stillness Gave no token, Merely this and nothing more Wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming Wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming Soul grew stronger; Hesitating no longer, Truly the forgiveness Blessed with sageness Desolate, undaunted Horror haunted And yet And yet And yet I'll win
2.
Battleground 06:04
Battleground Goals are transient Movement eternal Glorious, merciless Uselessness work Uselessness art Here it flows Life itself The great tension The will to fight The forms of our time Our own form The most defiant The most defensive Attitude All works become vain All concepts hollow Feel the expression Of an elemental Which was And always will be Even though There are no longer humans And no wars Don't show Your inner battleground
3.
Song of Deliverance For the waves of death encompassed me, The torrents of destruction assailed me; The cords of Sheol entangled me; The snares of death confronted me. In my distress I called upon the Lord; To my God I called. From his temple he heard my voice, And my cry came to his ears. Sent me from high and take me Drew me out of many waters, Rescue me from my strong enemy, From those who hated me Then the earth reeled and rocked; The foundations of the heavens trembled And quaked, because he was angry. Smoke went up from his nostrils, And devouring fire from his mouth; Glowing coals flamed forth from him. He bowed the heavens and came down; Thick darkness was under his feet. He rode on a cherub and flew; He was seen on the wings of the wind. Sent me from high and take me Drew me out of many waters, Rescue me from my strong enemy, From those who hated me

Stop Acting so Small You are the universe In ecstatic motion. Let yourself be silently Drawn by the stronger pull Of what you really love. Out beyond ideas Of wrongdoing And rightdoing There is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down In that grass The world is too full To talk about. The wound is the place Where the Light enters you. Stop acting so small.
5.
Suffer 05:14
Suffer He who learns must suffer And even in our sleep... Pain that cannot forget, falls Drop by drop upon the heart And reluctantly we become wise Blindness grows with enlightenment Mankind moves in a maze of light Forgotten how to find Peace in darkness. The great thoughts arise in the heart But fail at the world. A happy century does not exist But there are moments of happiness And there is freedom in the moment.
6.
This Dusky Faith Why, then, weep not, Since naughty's to weep. Too wild, too hot For a dead thing, Altered and cold, Are these long tears: Relinquishing To the sovereign force Of the pulling past What you cannot hold Is reason's course. Wherefore, sleep. Or sleep to the rocking Rather, of this: The silver knocking Of the moon's knuckles At the door of the night; Death here becomes Being, nor truckles To the sun, assumes Light as its right.
7.
What might have Been What might have been Is an abstraction, Remaining a perpetual possibility Only in the world of speculation. What might have been And what has been Point to one end, Which is always present. Footsteps echo in the memory Down the passage We did not take, Towards the door We never opened.
8.
The Grave 05:22
The Grave There is a calm for those who weep, A rest for weary pilgrims found, They softly lie and sweetly sleep Low in the ground. The storm that wrecks the winter sky No more disturbs their deep repose, Than summer evening’s latest sigh That shuts the rose. I long to lay this painful head And aching heart beneath the soil; To slumber in that dreamless bed From all my toil. For Misery stole me at my birth, And cast me helpless on the wild: I perish—O my mother earth! Take home thy child. “The Grave, that never spake before, Hath found at length a tongue to chide; O listen!—I will speak no more:— Be silent, Pride!
9.
Chaos & Order True speech The fundamental idea of the West The hell of absolute order The hell of absolute chaos No matter where you go Order in chaos exists You have to be awake and alert With your capacity to see and to hear Pay attention and speak the truth This is how you live a proper life You need an antidote to suffering The truth is an antidote The final hell is your soul Loosing in destruction Ideology is a parasite The ability to speak the truth is The bulwark of fighting hell I know where corruption of speech ends Don't do that again Tell the truth You need an antidote to suffering The truth is an antidote The final hell is your soul Loosing in destruction Ideology is a parasite, a parasite
10.
Therefore pride is their necklace; They clothe themselves with violence. They scoff, and speak with malice; In their arrogance they threaten oppression. Their mouths lay claim to heaven, And their tongues take possession of the earth. This is what they are - (wicked) This is what they are - (wicked) But earth has nothing – nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, But you are the strength of my heart Forever

My Rebirth 05:54
12.
The Divine Image To Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love, All pray in their distress: And to these virtues of delight Return their thankfulness. For Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love, Is God, our father dear: And Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love, Is Man, his child and care. For Mercy has a human heart, Pity, a human face: And Love, the human form divine, And Peace, the human dress. Then every man of every clime, That prays in his distress, Prays to the human form divine, Love, Mercy, Pity, Peace. And all must love the human form, In heathen, Turk, or Jew. Where Mercy, Love, & Pity dwell, There God is dwelling too.

about

Nearly four years after the highly acclaimed “In the Dawn of Freedom,” German old school dark electro act PYRROLINE return with their most accomplished album to date! The fifth album titled “Struggling” showcases the band’s signature richly textured synth soundscapes, skillfully intertwined with Arnte’s haunting vocals and Schmoun’s dreamy chants. The album takes PYRROLINE fans on a long journey through sombre tones, infectious beats and deceptively addictive melodies!

Only the 2 CD Digipack is accompanied by an exclusive bonus disc featuring 3 original PYRROLINE tunes and 9 stupendous remixes by Placebo Effect, Jihad, Sleepwalk, Terminal State, The Opposer Divine, Fix8:Sed8, g.o.l.e.m. and Amorphous! The jaw-dropping line up of remixers underscores the old school electro community’s appreciation for the landmark album. Once this limited 2CD Digipack (500 units) is gone you won’t find those bonus jewels anywhere! In short, the double disc gives PYRROLINE fans A LOT more than they bargained for!
