Track Name: King Cobra
This is just the beginning. The prophecy you’ve told is dying here by the minute as hypocrisy unfolds. You could never believe it untrue, this sanctimonious bullshit. Unworthy. Unwanted. But now if you live through me you can truly see the face of God.

Can you believe? Bleed for me. Will you still believe after I hang you from my crooked cross?

Everything has an ending and this will surely come. Devour. No relenting. The hour has begun. Now you can see that your world is overweight and spoon-fed. Believing through deceiving. Only now do you see the revolution has begun. You will pay for your crimes against humanity. I’ll fucking bleed you myself if I fucking have to.

Can you believe? Bleed for me. Will you still believe after I hang you from my crooked cross

There are no lessons left to learn. Just watch as it goes down and see the blessed kingdom burn. Now you are under control. There's no tomorrow. You’re fucking hollow. Just feeding through de-breeding. And now your life and soul belong to me. Welcome to hell motherfucker.

Can you believe? Bleed for me. Will you still believe after I hang you from my crooked cross?
Track Name: Amnesiac
When I look in the mirror I don’t know who I see. And I can’t remember so just tell me.

Contaminated here. This is the cross to bear. Passing the moments with these blinders on my eyes. Nothing left to defend. Desensitized again. Pushing the fallacy that’s eating me up from within.

When I look in the mirror I don’t know who I see. And I can’t remember so just tell me, what’s my fucking name? Everything around me has gone and burned away. Can somebody please tell me what’s my fucking name?

Alone. So captivated. So fucked up and constipated. Losing identity. One more distant memory

Fading out from view. Who am I?

When I look in the mirror I don’t know who I see. And I can’t remember so just tell me, what’s my fucking name? Everything around me has gone and burned away. Can somebody please tell me what’s my fucking name?

Lost inside the smoke of my innermost. Complications arising. I am so confused. Cannot see the truth. Ignorance is now blinding. Don’t lie to me

Don’t you lie. I am sinking down the rabbit hole. I can see me through the looking glass.

As I peak through the looking glass the reflection is a stranger

So tell me who am I?

When I look in the mirror I don’t know who I see. And I can’t remember so just tell me, what’s my fucking name? Everything around me has gone and burned away. Can somebody please tell me what’s my fucking name?
Track Name: Goddess
This was the light inside my blackened sky. A breath of air before I slip into the night. Believe in me I would part the raging sea. I would give up my life just to hold you one more time.

I look at you and you shine like a thousand burning suns pulling the stars back together. There is a place where I carved your name upon my tongue to keep you with me forever.

What does it mean? Am I living in a dream? We can bleed apart or be together we can't. A bitter end and I still can't comprehend. I would lay down and die just to touch you one last time.

I look at you and you shine like a thousand burning suns pulling the stars back together. There is a place where I carved your name upon my tongue to keep you with me forever.

A single cell awakens and everything we know is slowing down. A song for the forsaken. And all the time we had is running out. I’m alone again.

I look at you and you shine like a thousand burning suns pulling the stars back together. There is a place where I carved your name upon my tongue to keep you with me forever.
Track Name: Champion of Justice
This hunger is twisting to form. The destruction of all that you know.

All that remains are the blood stained walls. You can't clean it with something you find at the shopping mall.

I died for u. Do u even remember who I am? Beyond the grave I’ll keep asking, “is this justice?”

This is contained in a blood soaked soul. You can feel beneath all your dreams as you strive to resolve.

Don't look to the symbol. Don't look to these marks on my chest. For these are the markings of war. These are the marks of unrest. And I keep asking.

I died for u. Do u even remember who I am? Beyond the grave I’ll keep asking, “is this justice?”

No one will know but the loss is apparent. Deeds are destroyed by the words left unsaid. When does this break? When does this bend? When does this story fucking end? When does it rain down all the sorrow from the sky? When there's no one to cry for justice.

I died for u. Do u even remember who I am? Beyond the grave I’ll keep asking, “is this justice?”
Track Name: Dark Matter
As I stand atop of all that you revere, we had nothing but an exit. Living silently but broke beyond repair with no way to really fix it. Extend your hand and bid farewell as I watch you walk away. Now see as everything has been revealed and it bursts into flames that whisper your name.

In spite of you I’m still happy. In spite of you I’m still alive. In spite of you I’m still breathing. In spite of you I've survived.

Now pushing back and pushing forth against the wind. A reflection of our progress. Now cut the string and watch it crumble from within. So hard for me to digest. Slowly drinking from the poison in your heart. Now I’m breathing fire. Now watch as everything is burning up. I’m reborn in the flames that echo your name.

In spite of you I’m still happy. In spite of you I’m still alive. In spite of you I’m still breathing. In spite of you I've survived.

And now we are reaching the final act. This is the end of the story. And now there will be no turning back. Distorted and left here un-whole.

Inside where you left me. I died when you left me. Reborn when you left me. Reborn in fire.

In spite of you I’m still happy. In spite of you I’m still alive. In spite of you I’m still breathing. In spite of you I've survived.
Track Name: Whipping Boy
Disown. Now sever the ties. This is the coming of the end.

Alone and drying we’re drifting apart (dead from the start).

And I will no longer slave for you. And I will no longer be trained by you. And I will no longer be satisfied. And I will no longer be a sacrifice.

Erode. Forever destroyed. There is no waking up the dead

Reload and drive in and rip through the heart (it’s ripping apart, bloody and marred).

And I will no longer slave for you. And I will no longer be trained by you. And I will no longer be satisfied. And I will no longer be a sacrifice.

I will no longer be your mother fucking sacrifice. Your sacrifice.

Just another reminder of what you left here. A heart that’s bleeding away. Just another failure. Another dream leaving silently

And I will no longer slave for you. And I will no longer be drained by you. And I will no longer be satisfied. And I will no longer be your sacrifice.

I will no longer be your mother fucking sacrifice.
Track Name: Ares
You could say I am becoming a monster.

Grave. A twist of fate. Incinerate. This is the cross I bear. Insane. I can’t explain. Nothing remains in this, the never ending.

We will sharpen our stick at both ends. One in the ground and the other holds your head. I am the weapon you've designed. I am the destroyer, the death of all mankind.

You should pray. I’m enjoying your torture.

Rape. I will invade and separate. This is a hate I can’t contain. Contaminate. No one is safe from this, the dark descending.

We will sharpen our stick at both ends. One in the ground and the other holds your head. I am the weapon you've designed. I am the destroyer, the death of all mankind.

We are lost within the wave. Pay a cost beyond a grave. We are drowning in sadness, perpetual madness. Under duress it’s weakness that’s gripping our fate.

You must bleed for us to live. You will die for all our sins (die).

We will sharpen our stick at both ends. One in the ground and the other holds your head. I am the weapon you've designed. I am the destroyer, the death of all mankind.
Track Name: Blood Fire
I’m falling down into the emptiness I know. Dissolving without a resolution. I can’t go on spinning round in circles and there is no one to lift me from my hell.

There is no other way to stay alive. Denied my own addiction. I won’t make it through the night. This is the only way. I must survive. I’ll feed until it’s over and there’s nothing left alive.

It’s calling. I can feel it pulling me inside. Revolving, but there’s no revolution. I can’t hold on. There’s never any answers and there is no one to break me from my cell. And I believe that I will always be walking alone inside my own hell.

There is no other way to stay alive. Denied my own addiction. I won’t make it through the night. This is the only way. I must survive. I’ll feed until it’s over and there’s nothing left alive.

It’s taking over and it’s underneath my skin. It’s getting colder and I can’t contain the darkness deep within. It’s getting closer and your running out of time to close your eyes and dream again.

There is no other way to stay alive. Denied my own addiction. I won’t make it through the night. This is the only way. I must survive. I’ll feed until it’s over and there’s nothing left alive. I’ve opened up the veins. I’m drowning in this blood.
Track Name: Coward
This masquerade has continued long enough. The impending disaster is growing inside of this grudge. Refused the affliction. Controlled the addiction. Purified in the depths of intention. Crossing dimensions with true misconceptions of light.

We will stand in the fire. We will bleed and divide.

Don't walk away from me the tide has overturned just crawl away on your knees.

It’s the stupid dog that bites the hand that feeds. If it does what it’s told then it gets what it needs. Remove imperfection and smash the reflection. Justified in the depths of perversion. Clouded and searching for truth in an ocean of lies.

We have bled all our lives. We will bleed till we die.

Don't walk away from me the tide has overturned. Just crawl away on your knees.

And this has risen from the ashes. Reborn behind a wall of shame (a wall of pain).

Now this charade has ended in disgust. And the echoes of laughter are dying beneath all the rust. Reject the infusion. The final solution. Homicidal. I'd bury the question. Killing perfection in this dissection of life.

We have bled one last time. We have died on the vine.

Don't walk away from me the tide has overturned. Just crawl away on your knees.
Track Name: Four Year Term
I open my eyes and I decide everything that I’ve been taught is a lie. The scars left behind will always remind.

And now there is no more to say. You’ve killed all the purity around me. You have destroyed and then displayed all that was beautiful inside me.

Now I open my eyes and I decide everything that I’ve been taught is a lie. The scars left behind will always remind me. I’ve bled for nothing.

You made the rules and then you broke through my immunities. Defenseless here I lie. And now it’s fading like a ghost. The loss of humanity in the process.

Turning to dust. Baited and turned away from this God. Burning the blame away.

I open my eyes and I decide everything that I’ve been taught is a lie. The scars left behind will always remind me. I’ve bled for nothing.

It’s all been a lie.

I open my eyes and I decide everything that I’ve been taught is a lie. The scars left behind will always remind me. I’ve bled for nothing.
Track Name: Behind A Faded Star
Invited. We didn’t head the word. Invaded. When will we ever learn? Cataclysm no intermission. The precipice of our demise. You can’t afford to just shut your eyes anymore.

Now we are breaking through the other side as the rain falls to the ground.

I’m waiting for the flood.

Who is the defender? No voice we must surrender. No fucking choice but lay down and die forevermore.

And now it has begun. The sun will die as the night falls forever.

I’m waiting for the flood

Now watch it disappear. Around us everything is just crumbling. Now everything thing we feared is coming and there’s nothing we can do but pray. Just pray.

We are the martyrs. We are the walking deceased. We are the failures. We are this planet’s disease.

There is no escaping the inevitable. You cannot hide from the end when it comes.

Waiting.
I’m waiting for the flood.
Track Name: Monolith
Once around the horizon. The event horizon.

Staring at the monolith swirling before you. It’s the ever revolving back door of reality cavity. Singularity in a moment of clarity as its feeding and breeding never ending duality. Destination the unknown. Only knowing the light won't be taking us home. We are sinking like a stone inside the circle.

We can’t ignore the stretch. It’s twisting our emptiness. We are crossing over.

Standing at the door of today and tomorrow is the never existing front door to humanity vanishing. Elevated point of view. Ever changing illusion.

Oh my God, we’re slipping beyond dimensions. Oh my God, welcome to oblivion.

Once around the horizon. The event horizon.

Welcome to the event horizon. There's no immunization from the cosmic rays. Freeze dried by the radiation as you fall in and start to compress. Welcome to oblivion. Welcome to oblivion. This is spaghettification. We are sinking down.

We can’t ignore the stretch. It’s twisting our emptiness. We are crossing over.

We are inside the center inside the vortex. We are going where no one has ever been. Beyond the fabric of space and time. Deeper. Deeper into the vortex.

There’s no way out. You can’t escape. There’s no debate. This is your fate revolving. Inside this place there is no space. Just everything dissolving. Welcome to oblivion.
