Track Name: Blight
This day and age we're facing fearful odds through the ashes of fathers and temples of gods
We're digging graves for our unborn ones the time has come to draw the fucking line

They are not prophets they're just spreading lies
Lies from their mouths every word aimed to blind
Patronize simple minds bring to naught and suppress every thought

With every second we're enticing our decline
We have vanished in the shadows of our pride
In the end we are leaving everything behind
For out of the ground we were taken and for the dust we are

With every second we're enticing our decline
We have vanished in the shadows of our pride
In the end we are leaving everything behind
For out of the ground we were taken and for the dust we are
Track Name: Remnant
How can you be so proud of all the harm you’ve caused?
I could never fathom your line of reasoning and all the things that you’ve done to me in suspended disbelief...fuck

Your line of reasoning has taken everything
Your line of reasoning has taken everything

(Heal my scars cause I can’t run from the things you’ve done)

What makes you think that you can walk away and act like everything is fine?
There’s only sorrow, pain and misery - it’s all that you have left behind
These silvered sunken eyes a darkness that has paralyzed every aspect of my life

Imprinted memories of cruel abuse and suffering - I carry within me
A past that’s crippling and staining everything - with dark and filthy imagery
How can I get past the burning ache that fills my chest with every single breath I take?
I am the walking dead with nothing left - a remnant of beaten past...

(Heal my scars cause I can’t run from the things you’ve done)

I can’t allow you to just walk away and act like this can be undone
I gather all the hate inside of me to make sure your sins will find you
You can’t run from me my thirst for blood is now awakening
And I can’t allow you to just walk away so don’t try to fucking run...

Your line of reasoning has taken everything
Your line of reasoning has taken everything

You’ve taken everything…

Heal my scars cause I can’t run from the things you’ve done
Track Name: Endorsed by Devil
Everyone seems so fun on my brand new widescreen - a gaping glory hole that sucks me in
A vortex of illusions and lies at first it feels so good but soon it leaves me dry

So up the dosage and grab the popcorn - join the joyride
Point your finger, it's just a mirror screaming out loud

We don't care about you - just wanna take a bite
We don't care about you - and later spit you out
Endorsed by the devil this rat race runs strong
Buttfucked and broken and begging for more

Real life doesn't turn us on we won't rest until we fall
And no one ever really wins this crazy marathon

Disorganized and overwhelmed we are conflicted
We’ve made our bed with eyes wide shut we’re choking now

And the blood that paints our screens is our blood that’s being spilled
And the blood that paints our screens is our blood that’s being spilled

So up the dosage and grab the popcorn - join the joyride
Point your finger, it's just a mirror screaming out loud

Screaming out loud...
Track Name: C.A.C. (Circumstances Alter Cases)
I hear my demons they're calling they're here again to take hold of my life
Force my actions upon me make me forget that they can't be undone

Is evil something that we are or is it something that we do?
I can’t remember who I am when I’m with you

I’ve become something less
I’ve become someone else
I’ve become what I hated the most

Take away all my options leave me with nothing but hate, rage and spite
Force my actions upon me make me forget that they can't be undone

Is evil something that we are or is it something that we do?
I can’t remember what I am when I’m with you

I’ve become something less
I’ve become someone else
I’ve become what I hated the most - I’ve become you

Is evil something that we are or is it something that we do?
I can’t remember who I am when I’m with you

Is evil something that we are or is it something that we do?
I can’t remember who I am when I’m with you
Track Name: Detach and Realign
The answers given are in fact increasing all the crushing weight
The world keeps pushing down on me I think I need some help
Cause right now I am lost in this dance of despair as I keep questioning myself...

The pace we force upon ourselves feels so hard to follow
The daily dose of doubt is way too much to swallow

Stop - I need to stop and catch my breath
Stop - There’s only so much I can take before I start breaking apart

There’s something deeply wrong with us just take a look around
And see the world for what it is and witness it’s burning grounds

Stop telling yourself that everything is fine
Don’t turn a blind eye and sleepwalk through life

No - I can’t escape the state I’m in
No - No words can help and make me feel that this is what life’s all about

Now walk through all the broken shards detach and realign
And see the world for what it is and witness the burning grounds

Stop telling yourself that everything is fine
Don’t turn a blind eye and sleepwalk through life

Stop telling yourself that everything is fine
Don’t turn a blind eye and sleepwalk through life

Detach and realign...
Track Name: Metafiction
Devoid of life...

What do you see when you take a look behind the curtain?
Is there something more? Something more than meets the eye?
A mockery of common sense and human judgement that lies beneath the empty words of daily headlines

And if you had the choice would you try to reason and change the world
Or would you rather choose to light the match and watch it burn
(And would you change the world or would you watch it burn?)

Underneath the searing skies empty souls devoid of life

We’re overdosed by the constant noise forced fed through media and we’re looking for more
If we’re threatened by loss we give up our freedom
In this kingdom of lies question everything - you have to question everything

How quickly does life seem to change for us if we take a step forward through the smokescreen and witness the decay
An empty gaze and vacant minds that were slowly poisoned by ill defined criteria

Underneath the searing skies there’s nothing left to find
Underneath the searing skies empty souls devoid of life
Track Name: Another Mistake
How far can we go?
Every step that we take brings us closer to the edge
And now that we've reached the end there is no turning back
Every word, every breath, every dream that we had nothing but shadows every step of the way
We are grasping at straws and fading away

We are sitting on shoulders of giants
We are playing gods amongst ourselves
We are disregarding the fear of perfection
We are just another mistake we made

Our souls separate in silence and we slowly close our eyes as life passes us by
Our bodies turn to ashes and our loved ones into dust how can we be so blind

We are sitting on shoulders of giants
We are playing gods amongst ourselves
We are disregarding the fear of perfection
We are just another mistake we made

Our souls separate in silence and we slowly close our eyes
Our bodies turn to ashes and our loved ones into dust
How can we be so blind?

We are sitting on shoulders of giants
We are playing gods amongst ourselves
We are disregarding the fear of perfection
We are just another mistake we made

We are sitting on shoulders of giants
We are playing gods amongst ourselves
We are disregarding the fear of perfection
We are just another mistake we made
Track Name: Act of Violence
Familiar words wake me up at night and confront me with violence
No whispers, just an endless gloom and the walls that surround me

Take a good look at what I came to so weary and burdened throughout
And all my screams drowned in silence...

All I hear is the sound of your voice and it keeps me breathing
All I hear is the sound of your voice don't let me go

Take a good look at what you gave me a nightmare I'll live all my life - I can't escape it
That moment when you lost all control still haunts me each night and all my screams met with silence...

All I hear is the sound of your voice and it keeps me breathing
All I hear is the sound of your voice don't let me go

There's no such thing as life with no burdens and we are who we are
There's no such thing as life with no burdens and we are who we are

Take a good look at what you gave me a nightmare I'll live all my life - I can't escape it
That moment when you lost all control still haunts me each night and all my screams met with silence...

All I need is the sound of your voice all you give me is silence
All I need is the sound of your voice all you give me is silence
All I need is the sound of your voice all you give me is silence
All you gave me was silence...
Track Name: Zero Degrees of Empathy
Behold, this is what we have become - an unstoppable force crushing all those who oppose
With no restrains and proudly walking tall selfish to the core - mind set to conquer all

Remorse cast aside and disposed to shape the perfect mold erase the weak and the old
Human excess in it’s sickest form an overwhelming desire to dominate and control

Disintegration - a failing society

Remorse cast aside and disposed to shape the perfect mold erase the weak and the old
Human excess in it’s sickest form an overwhelming desire to dominate and control

This is damnation...

Crowned with pride and drowned in senseless sacrifice
Crowned with pride and marching towards our demise

Witness the fall of reason
Witness compassion withering
Witness eradication of all morality

We we are the source of evil
We are the darkness slithering
We are annihilation of all humanity

Rise - This is a call for revolt
Rise - This is a call for mutiny
Rise - This is a call for sacrifice
Rise - Transform humankind

Crowned with pride and drowned in senseless sacrifice
Crowned with pride and marching towards our demise

This is a call for sacrifice
This is a call for revolt
This is a call for sacrifice
This is a call for revolt

Transform humankind...
Track Name: Shadow Self
Do you feel safer here underneath your blackened sky?
Can you breathe much clearer now in shadows of your empty life?
Where does your haven lie in love for pain and silent cries?
In inner strain you pray to keep self fulfillment through defeat?

Searching for a perfect way to drown in the failure and selfishly reject everyone around you...

Welcome to the place where dreams disappear in a blink of an eye
And nothing really stays intact so you cannot be some kind of exception

Do you really think that hiding is what will keep you safe?
Do you really think escaping is what will set you free?

Why don't you break these walls and withstand the pain that will set you free?

You are nothing more than just a dancing shadow waiting for the sun to suck you dry
Don't let yourself become a faceless coward waiting for someone to blame for your own mistakes

Do you really think that hiding is what will keep you safe?
Do you really think escaping is what will set you free?

It's so easy to be disappointed and suffocate under the pressure
Of unbearable ease of existence - fragile and uncertain
Slave to your own illusions - let down by misfed emotions
Ran out of places to hide - shadow self, cast aside
Track Name: The Last Stand
A pointless sacrifice in an attempt to utilize the last resort to protect your system
Shepherd the herd and defend your kingdom...

Deceive and guide the lost
Deceive and guide the lost

They fear the truth the most and gladly trade safety for freedom

Deceive and guide the lost and offer them safety for freedom

A pointless sacrifice in an attempt to utilize the last resort to protect your system
Shepherd the herd and defend your kingdom...
And then a lie was formed that would blind the young and old
Never to question anything they’re being told and lead them down this dead end road

Deceive and guide the lost
Deceive and guide the lost

They fear the truth the most and gladly trade safety for freedom

Pushed against the wall - let freedom break the fall
Oppression retailed as safety while the war rages on

Submit to what you’re told and entrust your life
Submit to what you’re told and entrust your life
