Rorschach 04:11
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

Forsaken 03:49
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

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

Ascendancy 04:02
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

Mermaids 04:32
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

Samsara 04:32
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

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

Monster 03:29
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.

Avarice 04:11
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

Absense 05:51
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.
