Track Name: Rorschach
So tell me the story of when man first sinned
How many days did it take for the shadow to kick in?
For we were left on this plain
And we've used it's resource
Now we want things explained
Because paradise is lost!

Which of these ideologies should I trust?
Philosophies say we're just dust (wind and dust)
20 thousand years and we're cloudy at best
Is life nothing more than a Rorschach test.

We're
the sound
Of the curse
That defaces the earth.
The ignorant
Who wait at the gallows,
You can change your fate
But you can't escape, your shadow.

Till death
Bears my soul
And Life's nothing more than a widow
Till death
bears my soul
Through the window

Which of these ideologies should I trust?
Philosophies say we're just dust (wind and dust)
20 thousand years and we're cloudy at best
This life's nothing more than a Rorschach test.

You
I can see your dreams,
a plain view failed fantasy that never
Reaps what it sows
What is sows
X2

There
was a time
When freedom was ours
There
Was a time
When freedom wasn't
Far
Far away

The walls are closing in
Say goodbye to the
Light
(Say goodbye now)
Did you even try
You're walking on thin ice where the cracks GO
deeper than hell

If life is a gamble
Then we are the jokers
who can't even try
Why won't you die
Why won't you fucking die
Why won't you die
Fucking
Bleurgh
Track Name: Forsaken
I watch this life
Go round and round
And it's spiralling
So out of touch
I hear the winds say
no misery
6 feet deep.

Be strong
But I couldn't care less
if it goes wrong
In the end it can never ever go wrong.
Cause it only ever
All comes down to fucking
Power.
An angel takes its flight.
I'll be back
after burning your wings tonight.
Be strong
Do you even care less
If it goes wrong
In the end it can never ever go wrong
This is a forsaken life

(Chorus)
Forgive the envy of your enemy.
It's just a tear drop
Dripping poison.
One life
That survives on misery.
And in the embers You will grow.
As darkness takes a bow
From the light you show

As darkness takes a bow
And fear
is not the answer.

I'm
lost without you
I confess.
Is this my hell?
Just I a prison for my consciousness?
Have I fell from grace
And devised a purgatory I call home?
Destined
To be
Alone.

Each night and day
These thoughts inside are taking over
(Taking over)
I pray for rain
To cleanse my sanity
and take
this veil of mist
Away
(Away)
You stand before me
(It's Not too late for me)
Without fear in your eyes
You stand
Unbroken

THIS IS A FORSAKEN LIFE

(Chorus)
Forgive the envy of your enemy.
It's just a tear drop
Dripping poison.
One life
That survives on misery.
Within the embers You will grow.
And darkness takes a bow
From the light you show
Track Name: Constellations
This life
Consumes
Every last breath
Till we say our

Goodbye
For the very last time
Never more
Betray the pale moonlight
Take the shadows away
Our foundations are exposed
Falling
Deeper into the great abyss
That is your life

You rip apart constellations
Infatuated with beauty
Tearing apart constellations

Here's the sign
That you never see
As you take a kiss erasing constellations of history
Romance medicated silent and devoid.
I thought you were an angel
But your shadow reveals just what you are
Is my destiny
Fire
To incinerate
I can hear the screams
Fire
Now I try
Once again
To break the reign of incessant remorse
Always watching me fail

When the place erupts and you see the
Heavens dissolve
All that remains is the shadow of what we were.
Falling through time
Nothing consumes everything
Falling through time
And existence

Descend
Through existence
Like you have never known
And when I take in my last breath
I see you
And you're coming home

This life
Consumes
Every last breath
Till we say our goodbye
This life
Tears the stars from the sky

Good bye
For the very last time
Nevermore
Betrayed by the moonlight
For the very last time
I see you never more

You rip apart constellations
Infatuated as the heavens dissolve
Tearing apart constellations

This life consumes every last breath until we say our goodbye
This life
Tears the stars from the sky X2
Track Name: Ascendancy
Exasperated by every sense
Within a world
Pushing us
Forwards like cattle
Following Prophets soaked in lies

Loosing our destiny
Trapped in
This world of hate

Well I don't give a fuck
I'll replace the thing I loved most
In my heart, on this rock
And enter in
to a life with no beginning
Concentration is the key
To explore
Ascendancy
And infinitesimal
Infinity
And leave behind this world of treachery.

As I lie here exploring the depths of my sanity
I hear them whispering
Come with us and
And leave behind your reality
Escape duality

man kind's
Existing through their own extinction
Thus negating
All existence

Well I don't give a fuck
I'll replace the thing I loved most
In my heart, on this rock
And enter in
a life with no beginning.
Concentration is the key
To explore
Ascendancy
And infinitesimal
Infinity
And leave behind this world of treachery.

and with you
I won't stand alone
Waiting for one more try
The storm has receded
The stars fill the sky
We will stand our ground
Never run and hide
So don't waste my time
With impossible possibilities
This is the start of the rest of your life

As I lie here exploring the depths of my sanity
I hear them whispering
Come with us
And Leave behind your reality
Escape duality

Mankind's
Existing through their own extinction
Thus negating
All existence

And with you
I won't stand alone
Not one more time
And with you I won't stand alone
Track Name: Mermaids
Why
This everlasting game
Controls
Hate within the world

Serendipity spare
A fool who's lost at sea
That's unforgiving to a man
Who stained his soul
Malevolent waves
Forever target me
As they crash on my life until they bring me to my knees

I was lost at sea
When a beautiful mermaid rescued me
From insanity

I never wanted to be saved
But you looked so pure
Already walking to the grave
That I dig in the glimmering light of the moon at sea so dark and the night's awoken
By a siren sent to allure
So sick of being told to live for today
Always waiting for tomorrow cause I'm stuck in yesterday

I was lost at sea
When a beautiful mermaid rescued me
From insanity

Cursed is the cure
That brings this heart to shore

So blinded by the light
That reflects in your eyes
Misguiding
That something isn't right
Silencing inside of me

And I can't fucking see

Cursed is the cure
That brings this hear to shore
Sent by the sirens to allure

This final piece is gone
With the setting of the sun
And what we were
Will remain
In the twilight of yesterday

I was lost at sea
When a beautiful mermaid rescued me
And what we were
Will remain
And with a kiss that served
As a good bye
You returned
Where I can't breathe

Walk in the shadows
Or spend your life at sea
Spend your life at sea
Track Name: Samsara
Curiosity leads you to open up this door.
You only think that you need this
Because you know I want it more.
Walking blindly through fire
Like you wanted to be saved
And you know I'll take you to the grave

Where I was born
What's now a distant home
A lifeless living soul
Forever trapped in a world that is rapidly moving backwards,
Into an unknown future depreciating all we once called life.

Sometimes the silence
Can ascend us to the stars
As unstoppable as a bullet
We forever
Fall through timeless sands
It's not up to destiny to take our hand

(Chorus)
So Don't look back
For the universe
Is poetically sealed with a curse
Life begins on death row
And we must pay for this
it's time to go

Fear is not enough
For the fucking cowards who try to blind us from the light
I cant ever Fear, fear
For Fear, fears me

Open your mind
not with a gun or a knife
But with knowledge from this life
Bestowed.
That they don't want you to know.

It's not how you die
But how you live
That will
echo Through the
eternal mist
And I want to know
If you'll wait for me
When your world falls to darkness
The black sleep
And share eternity

Your waking life can send you up into the stars
Except when I'm with you I never want to be apart.
Thats because when I miss you
I embrace the pain within
That lets me know I end where we begin

Sick
Of the lies designed to try and break our hearts
Unstoppable as a bullet
We forever
Fall through timeless sands
It's not up to destiny to take our hand

(Chorus)
Don't look back
For the universe
Is poetically
Sealed with a curse life begins on death row
And we must pay for this
It's time to go

It's time to go
For eternity
Falling through time
For eternity

Sick
Of the lies designed to try and break our hearts
Unstoppable as a bullet
We forever
Fall through timeless sands
It's not up to destiny to take our hand

(Chorus)
Don't look back
For the universe
Is poetically
Sealed with a curse life begins on death row
And we must pay for this
It's time to go
Track Name: Summon the Tides
Last night I summoned the tide
To cleanse the lives
Of the puppets who dwell in flesh
Darkness reborn
Following false signs
With promises of eternal life

So occupied
With selfish desire
Never noticing
This worlds ruin
A species lost in their spectrum
Without the sight to see

Seeds planted in darkness
Will awake
With darkened eyes
And you just let this life pass
As a vision of a memory of a light
That was so bright inside

And we've been sold
You could cover this world in shit,
To a fly
It would still be gold.

We've been sold

And I
Will learn from every one
But I
Will follow no one, no

A false divide of the earth
Where the world is crumbling
The wise have opened their eyes
And fools want to be king.

And I
Will learn from everyone
And I
Will follow no one, no

The frame of life is demise
Binding our portrait
A Mona Lisa smile
That conceals our hate

Walking towards the final curtain.

Break through
These heathen lies
A facet of reality
Hiding another side

Break through
These heathen lies
A facet of reality
Hiding another side

When the bleeding eyes start to return
And the dead will rise but we are so occupied with blood and stones that devalue our life and yet, have no soul.

Walking towards our death, the final curtain
Am I alone
In this shattered realm that I call home
Track Name: Monster
Distracted
By the moving lights
So bright consuming the night
Falling further from the path
Uncontrollably walking in lines
Like moths to a light

And if I die tonight
Will I be
Unparalyzed
From this life.
A never ending thought that's suffocating me
I'll stay trapped in my mind because insanity let's me breathe

(Chorus)
Forever Trapped in the past
Lost within present
Never experiencing reality
Because it's gone within a second
I surrendered my pride
So take me away
From this life
Stuck in a world that is suffocating me
I'll stay trapped in my mind because insanity let's me breathe.

So taken back by a phoney fucking image
A world devastated
Bred for peace
Made through war

The rain falls down
Testing my sanity
Till I rest in peace
The 3 Mystics
Are lost inside of me
Until I break this curse
I can't see or speak or hear or fucking breathe.

I can't escape this world

(Chorus)
I'm
Forever Trapped in the past
Lost within the present
Never experiencing reality
Because it's gone within a second
I surrendered my pride
So take me away
From this life
Stuck in a world that's suffocating me
I'll stay trapped in my mind because insanity let's me breathe.

Let's me breathe

Stuck in a world that's suffocating me,
I'll stay trapped in my mind because insanity lets me breathe.
Track Name: Avarice
How many lives
Did it take to procreate your smile?
Behind each golden little grin
A monuments inside
forecasts sorrow.
So indestructible within your world.
never go to sleep
No we'll rest again
For the greed that's within your eyes

(Chorus)
When the demon's at the door
And there's no where else to go
And death becomes the only window
When the demons at the door
And there's nowhere else to go
There's no escape, there's no tomorrow!!

The choices that we have
Till we surrender this life
Being force fed through greed
You'll pay the price

Into your death

(Chorus)
When the demons at the door
And there's nowhere left to go
And death becomes the only window
When the demons at the door and there's nowhere left to go
There's no escape there's no tomorrow

Behind closed eyes
We bend the truth
Nothing left for me
In this world but you.

Death
The only Animal
That you
will listen to anymore

They say
That fire dropped
To decease this hell on earth
That has us by the throat

Behind closed eyes
We bend the truth
Nothing left for me
In this world but you

Nothing left
But
You

No escape
There's no hope for tomorrow
Track Name: Absense
FEAR
HATE
Born from love
Obsession creates
FEAR

I unwrap
Every delicate dream
Confronted by these entities
Who are bursting through the seams.
Are you real?
No.
So What can you say to me?
Cause I've walked this path so many times
And my heart's worn out my fucking sleeve.

No regrets
Your feelings are dust
I can rid you of such sentiment
You're heart will never feel another's touch.
Am I lost??
Am I loosing my mind?
Well I hope you're having fun
While I sit here
talking to no one.

And as time
Moves forwards
I fade away
As night returns to day
You remain unchanged
From a life
Born
Just to decay

And I blame myself
But this is not me.

You know I
never wanted to be
Just simply existing in a world with just me as company.
So, As I rust
Like a man made of tin
Who's heart turned to dust

Take it back
man the fuck up
It's a curse
Doomed from the start
This is love
No
I know you're wrong
Well I hope you're having fun
While I sit here, talking to no one

And as time
Moves forwards
I fade away
As night returns to day
You remain unchanged
From a life
Born
Just to decay
And as time
Moves forward
I fade away
From a life
Born
Just to decay.

Now
That the war was lost
And this passage will be reprised
You wait with open arms
That
shine like the sunlight
Then
You go

Forget this place
Rancid
Vacant world.
I hear your voice
In this
Absent world.
Don't
Fear
The above.
This prison of flesh
Isn't who we are.
It's not who we are.

Addicted
from the start
A poison that was good for the heart
Now that I'm just
a shadow of the man you didn't know.

FEAR
HATE
BORN FROM LOVE
OBSESSION CREATES
FEAR

RAGE
DEATH
All that's left
For a man
Who's tasted the best
Fear
Hate
Born from love
Obsession creates

And as time moves forward
I fade away
From a life
Born
Just to decay

Now
That the war was lost
And this passage has been reprised
You wait with open arms
That
shine like the sunlight
Then
You go.
And I will wait till the end of the world for you.
Until the end of the world.
