Track Name: The Face of Fear
Get on your feet.
The time has come to stand your ground from now until the end.
This is a choice of life or death and you cannot escape.
Will you persevere?

As this life draws its blood and breaks your bones unrelenting.
Will you be strong enough to prevail?

Pick up your head.
The past is gone there’s no turning back.
Remember what you’ve learned.
Speak from the heart, and carry yourself with dignity.
You are not alone.

So grit your teeth and push through.

My heart is set ablaze as I watch the world decay.
Endless war and corruption have always seemed to find a way.
As the flames pump through my veins and my eyes are filled with hate.
You will hear my cry for equality, you will see true vengeance.

Soon, there will be an outbreak, testing your will to live.
To hear, to see, to feel, it’s all the same.
There’s not gonna be a middle ground, to keep you not insane.
I don’t need anything, and I don’t need you.
I don’t need the loose lips, or the guilt trips that sink ships.

Knocked back but I step to the front.
My words are choice and my blade is blunt.
I will destroy anything that isn’t real.
I change the pace, fight through the mace, stare in the face of fear.

Knocked back but I step to the front.
My words are choice and my blade is blunt.
I will destroy anything that isn’t real.
I change the page, fight through the mace, stare in the face of fear.

My heart is set ablaze as I watch the world decay.
Endless war and corruption have always seemed to find a way.

What are the facts of life?
That to live you must roll the dice.
Physical abrasions and the mental permutations are the real calculations of our time on earth.
The scenes are cut and spliced, taking on the image of a mental heist.
Are you alive?

What are the facts of life?
That to live you must roll the dice.
Physical abrasions and the mental permutations are the real calculations of our time on earth.
The scenes are cut and spliced, taking on the image of a mental heist.
Are you alive?

There comes a time when you just know what to do.
You may be cornered but you have to see it through.
No matter what the cost, survival is at hand.
Your mind shuts off and instinct is your command.

Knocked back but I step to the front.
My words are choice and my blade is blunt.
I will destroy anything that isn’t real.
I change the pace, fight through the mace, stare in the face of fear!
The face of fear!
Face of fear!
The face of fear!

These obstacles are only steps in a ladder.
Building blocks to a much larger picture, of your life.
These obstacles are only steps in a ladder.
Building blocks to a much larger picture, of your life.
Track Name: The Guiltiest Pleasure
Oh, what a perfect afternoon, for searching the town to get off today.
I’m double cheating the corners to make sure no one’s around.

I cannot be seen, no stories shall cast down upon us.
Just a maggot girl squirming amongst this filth.
Some girls just have babies, I’ve given birth to many.
They’re all inside my belt and just dying to get out.

Blistering, slithering, writhing maggots.
See them in my sleep.
Blistering, slithering, writhing maggots.
Count them in my dreams.

Buried with them safe.
Heats up all week.
Rotting in the trash.
She knows it’s better on Sunday.

This disease has never done me wrong.
Besides addiction and infection.
Some girls give labor, I’ve given birth to the flies.
So much time I wait inside.

So much time, I’ll wait.
So much time, I will anticipate.
My chance towards endless bliss.
So much time, I’ll wait.
So much time, I will anticipate.
My chance towards endless bliss.

In the dumpster, I’ll wait patiently.
I stir the trash to find, the fucking mother lode.
In the dumpster, I’ll wait patiently.
I stir the trash to find, the fucking mother lode.

I cannot be seen, no stories shall cast down upon me.
Just a maggot girl squirming amongst this filth.

So bury me within them safe, in the dumpster, I’ll wait.
Breath in the air, find the time to think this life is perfect for me.
Bury me within them safe, in the dumpster, I’ll wait.
Breath in the air, find the time to think this life is perfect for me.
Perfect for me!

The writhing maggots, I count them and grin.
Taking more piles and shoving them in.
So many babies, I keep them in safe.
Strapped to the bed, letting none disengage.
Track Name: Ours is the Fury
This day is mine.
I could only be held down for so long.
Free of all restraints and everything to gain, standing strong.
Your oppression, my aggression, my direction is succession.
I will lead them here tonight.
I’ll take what is mine, and your life.

Manipulation and wealth won’t give you the upper hand.
You think of it as a higher power, at your command.
You cannot and will not stop my strength,
an unstoppable force you can’t restrain.
I will set your world ablaze and you’re to blame.
You’re to blame!

I’ll take the heads off their necks, and I’ll remove the crown myself.
I will take what is rightfully mine and I’ll have nothing less.

You step on their backs to claim it all.
You never thought we’d come back, now twice as strong.
Your throne begins to sink in the blood you’ve built your whole empire on.
You have climbed so high now, just to fall.

Rise inside, I will now take what is mine.
Nothing you can do will fucking save them.
Follow me, victory is in our reach.
Just lift your tattered hand with me.
And show them our fury!

I will not bend, nor will I break.
I will lay siege at the brink of day.
This battle, this war is what I yearned for.

I will not bend, nor will I break.
I will lay siege at the brink of day.
This battle, this war is what I yearned for.

I am the shift, the change of the tide, the twist of fate that casts you aside.
Push through, my heart beat resides.
Break through, remorseless I fight.

Crawl out from underneath your rule.
(Crawl out from underneath your rule.)
I am the unrelenting truth.
(I am the unrelenting truth.)
Impose your will on me again.
(Impose your will on me again.)
Strike back with strife I’ll bring your end.
(Strike back with strife I’ll bring your end.)
This is not war this is revenge.

This is revenge!

Rise inside, I will now take what is mine.
Nothing you can do will fucking save them.
Follow me, victory is in our reach.
Just lift your tattered hands with me.

Show them our fury!
Show them our fury!

Though it’s so loud, all I can hear is my heart beat with anticipation.
As the swords attack the shields I come to.
The time has come the battle’s begun.
For every step I take I forge my path with fury.
Even if the sea turns to flames my name reigns.
I will lay claim and I will win this game.
Track Name: The Dark Defender
It calls out to me, my god forsaken need.
A thousand hungry voices now tell me to feed.
Under the moon so bright it feels like day but it is night.
The passenger grips, and holds me tight.

Clawing at my back, constantly gnawing at my brain.
This glorious feeling I could never replace.
Humanity I lack for I know only pain, but you’ll never see my true face.

These people and these places, are they camouflage at best?
Can they help me tame these demons and lay them down to rest?
An unfamiliar feeling.
A warmth I’ve never known.
To be like one of you is just like selling my darkened soul.

I have fooled you all with comfort and comradery.
Underneath the mask lies emotionless sociopathy.

Longing for normalcy.

Darkness controlling my every move.
I live a lie as I kill the truth.

Born in blood, discovered in pain.
I have found a place to unleash this rage.
Forbidden urges will control my endeavors.
Prowling the night I am the dark defender.

Suffering this internal struggle.
Must I abide to humanities laws?
My appetite is too quick to sustain morality.
My lustful cravings cannot restrain my duality.

Tell me, what do you see?
A fucking monster dwells inside of me.
True as the blood that runs through these veins.
I am terror, I am merciless, but am I insane?

Tell me, what do you see?
A fucking monster dwells inside of me.
True as the blood that runs through these veins.
I am terror, I am merciless, but am I insane?

Tell me, what do you see?
A fucking monster dwells inside of me.
True as the blood that runs through these veins.
I am terror, I am merciless, but am I insane?

My secret is safe with no one.
My sins will go unknown.
I am destined to do this forever.
In malevolence I must dwell alone.
I justify my vicious actions.
I rid the world of those just like me.
I try to life and love like you.
But I only want to see you bleed.

But I only want to see you bleed!

From comradery, to a casualty.
Anyone too close to me will soon cease to be.
I’ve waited patiently, the time has come to feed the need.

Born in blood, discovered in pain.
I have found a place to unleash this rage.
Forbidden urges will control my endeavors.
I lose control to it, the passenger of sin.

Born in blood, discovered in pain.
I have found a place in this world of decay.
Death incarnate, to my hand you’ll surrender.
I’m in control.
The dark defender.
Track Name: Together(Unbreakable)
Together unbreakable.

It bloomed.
So quick but we went for it.
The world was ours, together unbreakable.
But the reality of imperfection left us both the lesser in each other’s eyes.
Our love faded as we struggled for the most.

What do we deserve?
Do we actually deserve better?

It kills me to think that I don’t want you because I want everything for you.
But I’m so neglected that I can’t act unaffected.
How do you feel?
I bet it’s the same.
I bet we’re too ashamed to call it quits.

Too many years of work went into this.
I can’t run away, I can’t leave you today.
But am I just living in constant delay?
The inevitable has its noose wrapped tight.
I must break free but will it cost me my life?

I’m scared to go back home.
I’m scared to be alone.

My heart aches with every word I write.
This feeling is overwhelming.

I try for the best and I give you the worst.
Is this just my life or is this my curse?
I try for the best and I give you the worst.
Is this just my life or is this my curse?

How can we fix this?
Can we be each other’s ideals once more?
Why can’t the past just fade?
How can we fix this?
Can we be each other’s ideals once more?
We’re ok.
Once more.
We’re ok.

How come the past won’t fade?
Have we become prisoners of its clutch?
Unaffected by loves touch?
Even after the times we shared.
Back and forth in between good and bad.
After all we’ve been mad.

Tell me how come the past won’t fade?
Have we become prisoners of its clutch?
Unaffected by loves touch?
Even after the times we shared.
Back and forth in between good and bad.
After all we’ve been mad.

I try for the best and I give you the worst.
Is this just my life or is this my curse?
I try for the best and I give you the worst.
Is this just my life or is this my curse?
Is this just my curse?
Track Name: Trial by Fire
The vicious cycle, this daily routine.
I’m trapped within a chasm.
A void of every person’s discontent.
A labyrinth of social stigma.

A revolving door, a carousel of emptiness forever turning.
A life of failure I can bear no more.
This beaten path has driven me to the ground.

Following their illusionary necessities.
Eyes open to a life of stagnancy.

Another day watching my soul slip away.
I watch the hours pass as I fall into dismay.
Every second feels like an internal ulcer, too deep and infected to heal.
Left for dead but there’s always a means to an end.
The wounds I bear are wounds that time will never completely mend.
I’ve seen it before in my wildest dreams, the end of peoples suffering just like me.

I’ve been pushed to the brink of complete enmity.
I’ve been buried deep by this pessimistic sovereignty.
This is one final lesson that this race will have to learn.
This is a trial by fire, and you were all born to burn.

For every good man there’s fifty more bad you can’t escape just follow the line.
The purest rain trickles down from the sky, it turns to mud before I can call it mine.
A sacrifice to open their eyes, to change their minds display demise.
A sacrifice to open their eyes, to change their minds display demise.

Suffering, unrelenting, cast out those in control.
You’re all the same, you’re all to blame.
Death is the only toll.

I close my eyes and I envision the world ablaze.
I see through your disguises and the smiles across your face.
A world in misery coated my false liberties.
In death I choose nothing left to loose.
All will be sentenced to die and I the noose.

I’ve been pushed to the brink of complete enmity.
I’ve been buried deep by this pessimistic sovereignty.
This is one final lesson that this race will have to learn.
This is a trial by fire!

Distinguished by a line in the sand.
All are found guilty the blood’s on your hands.

A disgusting race not worthy of the rock we inhabit.
We find, we claim, we keep.
Then we sell it back for as much as we can.

How can you not be consumed by you guilt?
Or is it lack thereof that causes you to spit on everything I’ve built?
Are you untouchable, the fortunate sons?
Nothing will be of value after all is fucking said and done.

Can I sacrifice everything that I cherished and loved to watch them turn to dust?
I must sacrifice everything that I cherished and loved to watch them turn to dust.

I will join them in the pyre.
My last and only stand no other alternate exists.
Cleanse ourselves inside the fire.
Forsaken by the American dream.

No more days of watching my soul slip away.
The hours have passed the time is now to place the world in disarray.
Disavowed, the blame will be placed solely on my condition.
Still you will die in repetition.
Still you die in repetition.
Still you die!

For every good man there’s fifty more bad you can’t escape just follow the line.
The purest rain trickles down from the sky, it turns to mud before I can call it mine.
A sacrifice to open their eyes, to change their minds display demise.
A sacrifice to open their eyes, to change their minds display demise.
Track Name: Dismantled
My eyes open, I gaze into the sky.
It seems like yesterday my future looked so bright.
The clouds swallow the sun, I see no sign of anyone.
I believe my end has just begun.

Everything is numb, is this even real?
My sanity tested hope has disappeared.

I’ve been chewed up and spit out, inhuman regurgitation.
I lie here wondering what I’ve become.

Horrified, lying petrified!

Spreading like wildfire, the numbness turns to pain.
The river of the blood that once ran through my veins is flowing unrestrained.
One foot into an early grave.
In solitude I suffer and there’s no more left of me that can be saved.
Am I the only one to blame?

Torn and tattered is this all due to my selfishness?
What sins did I commit to deserve dismemberment?
Turmoil conceals me, misery I receive.
Suffocate, my inflictions and incisions smother me.

I feel as though the earth beneath me has opened.
Now hell will swallow me whole, fire consumes my soul.
I feel as though the earth beneath me has opened.
Now hell will swallow me whole.
Please consume me.

Despite the path I take, it remains the same.
(It remains the same!)
It remains the same.
(It remains the same!)
It remains the same.
(It remains the same!)

Here I lay dismantled.
Broken and cast aside, was this life all just a lie?
I am dismantled!
Despite the path I take my suffering remains the same.

The thought of this life is all I can see and I’ll never know if it belonged to me.
Eyes drained of their life…
The thought of this life is all I can see and I’ll never know if it belonged to me.
Eyes drained of their life, as I embrace the cold…

Lived to die, agony exemplified.
With nothing left inside my existence is a lie.

Lived to die, agony exemplified.
With nothing left inside my existence is a lie.
Lived to die, agony exemplified.
With nothing left inside my existence is a lie!

Was it all just a lie!?

Here I lie, dismantled!

My self-made tomb awaits.
In solitude I suffer and there’s no more left of me that can be saved.
So bury me and set me free.
Track Name: Unblinded
Tearing viciously, convulsing in this tomb concealing me.
Rid these demons from this life now I am finally set free.
Trying to control again, I cannot give in this time.
All these things that burden me are now the fuel that makes me be.
Makes me be!
Makes me be!
Makes me be!

To feel the pressure drag me down, is an incentive to push back again.
Reanimation of myself.
Awaken my perception.
Life is not an invitation to our deaths.
It offers more than meaningless existence.
The answers are something that burns inside of us.
It is the flame within every single soul.

You cannot escape past decisions.
I am falling under.
Only to climb once again.

You cannot and will not proceed to fall.
Into the endless void I call my home.
A place of self-induced suffering I called my own.
I dug too deep to find nothing.
My life must change or this cycle will repeat.

I was burning away at myself to an early grave
All those voices that lived in my head.
They told me that I’m better off dead.

I can see as the sun start to appear, a glimpse of hope.
The sound of our voices will echo through time.
As the mask of dawn draws you near.
A symphony, the site of this moment will be etched into the sky.

I will shed my hardened skin.
I will embrace what it means to let go of my misery.
I have become what I was meant to be.

I will sink into the earth.
I will plant the seed that will become my legacy.
And when I’m gone, I will live through them.

As the sunset fades.
My mind is clear.
As the sunset fades.
My mind is clear.

If the rivers and oceans run dry.
The mark I have on this world must remain.
Now that the shell of a dark past is gone.
I can finally say I am complete forevermore.

If the rivers and oceans run dry.
The mark I have on this world must remain.
Now that the shell of a dark past is gone.
I can finally say I am complete forevermore.

I lead by example even the darkest of places see the light.
I lead by example even the sightless can be unblinded.

Actions speak louder than what your voice could ever scream.
And the world is listening.
Actions speak louder that what your voice could ever scream.
And the world is listening.
And the world is listening.
And the world is listening.
Track Name: Nevercalm
I awake to the sound of silence defining.
How long has it since I’ve been asleep.
I glance through the fog taking shape over my eyes.

Feeling the ground shift beneath my feet.
The sound of familiar voices whispering.
The walls that I have escaped reflecting back at me.

I walk through the void, estranged from my loved ones, a hollow projection.
I walk in the night.
Nightmarish fortune am I no longer?

Through the dark I recognize a face.
Do they see mine?
For I am standing by their side.
Discovering a horror so divine, a body lies.
In this vessel I confide, realizing it is mine.

Visions flashing forcefully.
Overwhelming imagery.
A vivid show of misery.
Past and present intertwined in this world absent of time.
I am caught between the lines, in which life and death reside.

Past and present intertwined in this world absent of time.
I am caught between the lines, in which life and death reside.

I, the shroud of a mortal supernatural instinct.
A shadow of what ceased to exist.
My footsteps hidden deep within the midst.

I am what was forged from torment and sin.
The deep chill creeping underneath the skin.
I am the embodiment of nothingness.
Forever damned to this vast terrain of emptiness.

Sickening nothing more inside.
My soul is absent from my body tonight.
Free to roam where I choose, yet I am trapped in this timeless loop.
Let me back inside.
Re-enter this decaying body tonight.
Grant me a second chance to repair my broken life.

Sickening nothing more inside.
My soul is absent from my body tonight.
Free to roam where I choose, yet I am trapped in this timeless loop.
Let me back inside.
Re-enter this decaying body tonight.
Grant me a second chance to repair my broken life.

Unable to turn to this sick illusion.
Mortal life.

I walk through the void.
Uncomfortable solstice, a blissful entombment.
I walk through the night.
A ghost of another, a saddened illusion.

I walk…through the night!
I walk…through the night!

A blinding rage led blade to wrist.
(A blinding rage led blade to wrist.)
Welcome deaths unforgiving grip.
(Welcome deaths unforgiving grip.)
Embrace the hold it has on me.
(Embrace the hold it has on me.)
This life of lies unraveling.

Now my fate is sealed.
A soul not worth the mourning.
My memory forgotten, I am but a shroud.
Fade into darkness.
A weightless reckoning, submerged in obscurity the void beckons me.
