Hi J, I'll work on Moth to the Flame today. I guess these are somewhat difficult to understand.

Hey, man. I thought I could give you a hand. I've had a few moments to spare, so I've written down the lyrics, but... Since I'm Russian, these cannot be considered as definitve versions, and I've failed to make out a few things here and there. So the lyrics below should be reviewed and completed by a native. Cheers.

SE7EN

Seven times around the bend — and finally
I am where I want to be.
Seven days — that's right through the field of…
Of barren eternity.

[???]
look till the signs will show *

Seven tears run down my cheek when
I think of all that I have missed.
Seven gun strifes break the silent air
Right here, in front of me.

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't you envy the gluttonous greed
Filled by lust that traps
Our sloth-like pride within our wrath.

[Chorus]
I missed you by just seven seconds,
And now it's haunting.
Maybe I was meant to fall
Right in the agony.

Seven beats of my heart to show me
The time it takes to lose it all,
And seven times I've screamed your name to 'er —
Silence I'm hearing.

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't you envy the gluttonous greed
Filled by lust that traps
Our sloth-like pride within our wrath.

[Chorus]
I missed you by just seven seconds,
And now it's haunting.
Maybe I was meant to fall
Right in the agony,
Right in the agony.

[Instrumental]

[???]
Read out sacred secrets
To watch it all fall down.
We live this life in shackles,
That's we lose our crown.
Don't say
Just kill me
Save

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't you envy the gluttonous greed
Filled by lust that traps
Our sloth-like pride within our wrath.

[Chorus]
I missed you by just seven seconds,
And now it's haunting.
Maybe I was meant to fall,
Fall,
Meant to fall,
Meant to fall
Right in the agony.

For this song (S.O.S) I could get this:

This words are unbroken ~ memory might seem too ~.
These words are unspoken, they leave me out so fast
you save my crewmate with the fear, with the pride ~

~ you saved my crewmates from the fate rising from the deep ~
What's to live with nightmares

~ in vain

Dangerous are charming were as we will sail hoping there are it's not will prevail ~
We raise they sign if fly too low

In this tragic storn, that we collide, we are stand~ wicked waves.
In this, we keep our lives, to live your destiny. (alright) (I'm healthy)
( S. O. S.) x5

Dangerous are charming whereas we will sail hoping that the inside will prevail

~ the ever lasting waves, that pull us to our silent.

( S. O. S.) x3

It is incomplete and probably needs a lot of revision, are only phrases that I could catch.

For this song (The Conundrum) I could get this:

Was told me to keep my enemies real close,
for they main know me better that I even know myself.
Hiding in these open shadows, real mens about blast that follows
bringing []

It's coming around again and it's []I'm fragile
a simple man []
what'ts the fearing,
one more time betrayed my eyes clone my senses.

How I feel you now,
it's now escaping it this time
what else can I do

Hiding yourself only [] and I refuse to believe that we can not rise about all your torments.

In Se7en, I hear a few lines slightly differently. 'Seven times around the bend, and finally...', 'seven gun-strikes', 'right in the agony' (both times), 'to a silence I'm hearing'. I think there's a 'your' before 'sacred secrets', but can't hear the first word int that line clearly: maybe 'retract'/'re-tread'. 'Barren' has two 'r's. Putting a comment on Moth To The Flame directly also.

I have some improvements (I hope, though it still doesn't all make sense)

These words unbroken
The memory fades in too fast
These words unspoken
They lead me out so fast
You see right through me
With the fear and the blood
[missing line]

What’s to live when life is not of love
[What is the rest?]
What’s to die when death is not in vain

Danger is a charm, it won’t hurt
We will fail
Hoping that inside we’ll prevail

[Reliance are born, faith’s not of our own]
We risk facing this life alone

In this tragic storm that we […]
We are steadfast in our wicked ways
In this we give our lives
To reach our destiny [can’t hear the backing vocals]
To remember

Danger is a charm, it won’t hurt
We will fail
Hoping that inside we’ll prevail

[Reliance are born, faith’s not of our own]
We risk facing this life alone
And to be rid of the everlasting waves
That pull us to our silent graves

"and finally" - yes, now I can hear it too
"gun strikes" - could be (I hear something between "gun stripes" and "gun tribes", so "strifes" was more of an inference on my part)
"right in the agony" - I heard "in the agony" as well, but I chose "into" because I'd heard people talk of falling into agony, whereas "in the agony" didn't make much sense to me
"your" - agreed (must have forgotten to write it down)
"barren" - you're right, thanks

As for the growling part, too much distortion for me. Granted I'm not a native speaker, but I find it just as hard to understand what such singers roar about even in my native Russian. I really feel like such bands should publish their lyrics on their websites or something Regular smile

Here's what I hear:

These ropes I've broken
Locked memory fades into past
These words I've spoken
They leave me out so fast

You see right through me
With the fear and the blood
[And enough stretch *]
You saved my crew mates from a fate
Rusting from the deep

What's to live when life is not of love but/by ignorance?
What's to death when death is not in vengeance?

Okay, here's my attempt at Immunity. That was a tough one, to be honest. Half way through the whole thing I got tired of marking words and phrases with question marks, so treat every line as questionable. Have fun.

I was told * my demand (mighty man?)
Blanket ourselves with an angel
I'm at that * place within
Tragic how misguided we *
Dare not to know the way,
Looking left to all misfortunes
So * can we expect the *
Daring to merit the lies we feed to you *

Rise, rise
We all must be slaughtered
Rise, rise
We are stuck(?) to our destiny
Rise, rise
We all must be *
Rise, rise
To live until we hit the dust

My eyes have been open to
All the damage that we're making

Come find me
You got a * of hidden memories
Stuck(?) when times were made so simple
Living off the free and open air

Can't we've remembered
How to walk this way again?
I can/can't(?).

Won't you help me realign this?
We live amongst the demons,
Seeking out the weakest
To pull us all deeper.
Won't you help me realign this?
We live amongst the demons,
Seeking out the weakest
To pull us all deeper.

(?)We are too late to trust we saw you

(Hey, hey, hey)
And now it's time
We preached our * again
They pulled us past our needs
Let me see you stand and fight against the * the thing(?)
They cannot hold us down
Are you with me?

Run into the fray again
Trouble masked itself with kindness
Words cannot express my infinite sorrow
For your empty heart

Rise, rise
We all must be slaughtered
Rise, rise
We are stuck(?) to our destiny
Rise, rise
We all must be *
Rise, rise
To live until we hit the dust

My eyes have been open to
All the damage that we're making

Come find me
You got a * of hidden memories
Stuck(?) when times were made so simple
Living off the free and open air

Can't we've remembered
How to walk this way again?
When will immunity end?
When will we find what it is
That we're all looking for?

Finally, here's my take on V for Vengeance. Once again, I did all I could with it, now it's up to native speakers, I guess.

(?)

* from the ashes to wealth
Buried across from the chosen one
Today is the day we improve ourself
Give up * that they never found
*
We demand * on his mouth
*
Knocking at your door won't miss

Now hear this,
Which one of you is ready to die?
Touch * the flame of this * great fly,
I see no shame * my countrymen l*.

Who will find these men we seek
Fore they take what they can't keep?
Who will find these men we seek
And read them rights they're meant to take?

Feed 'em now to the wolves.
Together we lift our glasses
To the end.

Time, time is on my side —
We must then hide in our memories.
Each breath that we take
Reminds us that our fate is one.
Step away.

Vengeance is mine(?).
Vengeance is mine(?).

Now hear this,
Which one of you is afraid to die
Just like those cowards across the red sky,
Those rapists and killers that call themselves alive?
Who can fly to them?
Who will bring me the *, the *, the *
* they're all too same(?)
Who can fly to them?
Who will brave/break(?) this avalanche of * lies?

Who will find these men we seek
Fore they take what they can't keep?
Who will find these men we seek
And read them rights they're meant to take?

Feed 'em now to the wolves.
Together we lift our glasses
To the end.

Time, time is on my side —
We must then hide in our memories.
Each breath that we take
Reminds us that our fate is one.
Step away,
And don't let you die,
You sacrifice your life for your brethren.
Waiting across the cold, dead pastures,
May you find your solace there.

V for Vengeance, some parts are muted, probably for explicit lyrics, and the lyrics seems a bit different in some parts:

Okay, Altmira. Here's to teamwork. You should post the transcription with the parts you agree with, I'd say.

These words are broken
A memory fades into past
These words unspoken
They lead me out so fast

You see right through me
With the fear, with the blood
With an outstretched hand to reach
To save my crewmates from a fate
Rising from the ground, go!

What is to live in life? There's nothing to love but ignorance!
What is to die with death? There's nothing but vengeance!
What is to live in life? There's nothing to love but ignorance!
What is to die with death? There's nothing to fade.

Dangerous are charming waters
We will sail
Hoping that our inside will prevail

Reliants are born, faith’s not of our own
We risk facing this life alone

In this tragic storm that we call life
We are steadfast in our wicked ways
In this we give our lives
To reach our destiny [no lies, no hell's hands]
To the mast
(S - O - S)

Danger is a charm if waters we will sail

Long to be rid of the everlasting waves
That pull us to our silent graves

Thanks to jms2505 for the link to the live performance. I have a few suggestions from that and the originally posted video, though not enough to venture into print with yet. 'Today is the day we prove ourselves', 'give up the hope that they never drowned', 'knocking at the door of peace', 'touch the freedom of the flag they fly', 'when/where my countrymen lie', 'we mustn't hide in our memories', 'who will bring me the [rattled?], the tattered and battered?', and 'who will bring the severed head of our enemies?' (my take on the 'avalanche of lies' line).
I agree with 'vengeance is mine'. It makes more sense to split the lines 'Reminds that our fate is/One step away'. I thought on the live version I heard 'freedom now to the world', but on the studio one agree more like 'feed them now to the wolves'. Similarly on live I thought 'rip them right from their mental chains', but it doesn't sound like it on the studio version.

Thank you for your help, now there's only three remaining.
I've been trying to improve the lyrics, not sure if I did it:

Se7en [2:49]:
Return just seven seconds
To watch it all fall down
We live this life in shadows
As we lose our crown
Gluttonous slave
Just get away
Save me place

V For Vengeance:
Alright!!
Of myself from the ashes to wealth
Buried across from the chosen one
Today is the day we prove ourselves
Give up all hope that they never drowned
Never ago * myself * pride
We demand * on his mouth
*
knocking at the door of peace

Now hear this,
Which one of you is ready to die?
Dark soul freedom of the flag they fly',
I see no shame of my countrymen lie.

Not sure if it has sense, feel free to change it.

I believe I managed to make out more lines in the first stanza, although it's still incomplete and somewhat sus:

* from the ashes to wealth
Bearing the cross for the chosen one
Today is the day we (im)prove ourself
Give 'em law(?) that they never found
Here they come from the land to the south
With a man with the blood on his soul/sole(?) and his mouth
* preachers are slaughtering pigs(?)
Knocking at your/the door of peace

As for your other suggestions:
- today is the day we prove ourselves (could be)
- where my countrymen lie (agreed)
- we mustn't hide in our memories (agreed)
- who will bring me the [rattled?], the tattered and battered (agreed, although the first word eludes me)
- who will bring the severed head of our enemies (I hear something else, but I'm not happy with my avalanche line either - sounds a bit off)
- vengeance is mine (I'm in doubt about "is mine" cause it's just an inference on my part)
- reminds that our fate is/One step away (I agree cause now it makes more sense)
- rip them right from their mental chains (even on the studio version I think I hear something about reaping/ripping and mental, but I can't say for sure).

You can slow down songs on YouTube to 75, 50 and 25 percent of the original speed or speed them up (which can also help you catch some tricky parts by raising the pitch). Just use the settings cog in the YT video player. Alas, the problem with songs like these is distortion, so you are basically slowing down already distorted vocals (even with classic vocals the sound is slightly distorted due to differences in formant frequencies distribution between speech and singing). But it still helps with fast paced music. What could help us more is stripping out everything but the vocal track, and a user here on LT sent me a file like that once - the voice sounds eerie and incorporeal Regular smile but it gets the job done. Unfortunately, I'm not good at sound editing.
