1. STOP! BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE AND WE'VE DESTROYED IT ALL

I live, I stalk, I hunt, I eat,
With indifference for all.
I walk, I kill, I sleep, I breathe,
Slowly taking control.

The sickest part of our species,
Ravenous to evolve.
We spread like a fucking disease,
No vaccine protocol.

And at the end of days,
This will be our legacy we...
Kill! Kill! Multiply!
Till the skies are black and the rivers dry.
Take! Take! Take our time,
We leave no one else behind.

Kill! Kill! Here tonight,
Till the skies are black and the rivers dry.
Take! Take! Take our time,
We leave nothing else behind.

I don't feel anything at all,
As rats gnaw on my bones.
I'm not made of the same things at all,
A mechanical heart.

The sickest part of our species,
Ravenous to evolve.
We spread like a fucking disease,
No vaccine protocol.

And at the end of days,
This will be our legacy we...
Kill! Kill! Multiply!
Till the skies are black and the rivers dry.
Take! Take! Take our time,
We leave no one else behind.

Kill! Kill! Here tonight,
Till the skies are black and the rivers dry.
Take! Take! Take our time,
We leave nothing else behind.

You cannot stop what never ends.
You cannot stop what never ends.
You cannot stop what never ends.
You cannot stop what never ends.

And at the end of days,
This will be our legacy we...
Kill! Kill! Multiply!
Till the skies are black and the rivers dry.
Take! Take! Take our time,
We leave no one else behind.

Kill! Kill! Here tonight,
Till the skies are black and the rivers dry.
Take! Take! Take your time,
We leave no one else behind.




2. BLEEDING IS A LUXURY

I've talked the talk, I've walked the walk
It's taken ten fucking years
To make them see I don't need their approval
I've paid the piper, I've stayed my course,
Lived chomping at the bit,
With only blood, sweat and tears to adhere to

Open your eyes and see, that it's so menacing
You need to realize that
Bleeding Is A Luxury
Give 'til there's nothing left, value in every breath
You need to realize that
Bleeding Is A Luxury!

Take it for granted,
Forsake the cost
Wear a big shit-eating grin
(With only blood, sweat and tears to adhere to)
Not there, to burn at the chase, you're a pig,
And you think that fucking hurts
So they can see, I don't need their approval.

Open your eyes and see,
That it's so menacing
You need to realize that
Bleeding Is A Luxury
Give 'til there's nothing left, value in every breath
You need to realize that
Bleeding Is A Luxury!

Seize the day
Take your beatings
Lead the way or decay as you fall down!
YOU FALL DOWN!

Open your eyes and see, that it's so menacing
You need to realize that
Bleeding Is A Luxury!
Give 'til there's nothing left, value in every breath
You need to realize that
BLEEDING IS A LUXURY
It's a luxury
Bleeding Is A Luxury!




3. CONGREGATION OF THE DAMNED

I'm gonna give this monster life,
I may not have the pieces.
I'll keep on going through the night,
To see you all left screaming.

Face-to-face,
The Congregation of the Damned.
Face-to-face,
Screaming while we can.

I get carried away, Lost in a moment,
Torn into pieces, Of violent display.
I tear it away, Lost in a moment,
Searching for answers, I'm lost in the fray.

This life's a case, Of do or die,
Sometimes I need no reason, To lose myself,
In you tonight,
Right now's the darker season.

Face-to-face,
The Congregation of the Damned.
Face-to-face,
Screaming while we can.

I get carried away, Lost in a moment,
Torn into pieces, Of violent display.
I tear it away, Lost in a moment,
Searching for answers, I'm lost in the fray.

The Congregation of the Damned!
The Congregation of the Daaaaaaamned!

Face-to-face,
The Congregation of the Damned.
Face-to-face,
We're all,
Screaming while we can.

I get carried away, Lost in a moment,
Torn into pieces, Of violent display.
I tear it away, Lost in a moment,
Searching for answers, I'm lost in the fray.

I tear it away, Lost in a moment,
Searching for answers, I'm lost in the fray.

I get carried away, Lost in a moment,
Torn into pieces, Of violent display.
I tear it away, Lost in a moment,
Searching for answers, I'm lost in the fray.




4. COFFIN NAILS

Don't give a shit about it
Curl up, I start to doubt this
Something has died in me today
Smell the decay

I need some air around me
Claw walls until under nails bleed
Don't steal my coffin shut today

Coffin nails
So hard to pull
I cannot break free

From the ties that hold you down
From the grips of loneliness
There's something missing in my life
That I'm running after

Never meant to be held down
All I need is home right now
'Cause there's something missing in my life
That I'm running after

Self doubt breaks down my resolve
It cripples part of my soul
And masterfully I'll hide my pain
Smell the decay

Dead eyes and a hollow smile
Pitch black, my vision is gone
And masterfully I'll hide my pain

Coffin nails
So hard to pull
I cannot break free

From the ties that hold you down
From the grips of loneliness
There's something missing in my life
That I'm running after

Never meant to be held down
All I need is home right now
'Cause there's something missing in my life
That I'm running after

These coffin nails are keeping me
From the only thing I know
This monster's holding me
How will I break free

From the ties that hold you down
From the grips of loneliness
There's something missing in my life
That I'm running after

Never meant to be held down
All I need is home right now
'Cause there's something missing in my life
That I'm running after




5. BLACK DAYS BEGIN

We're all hell bent on destruction
Trying to erase black spots on our souls
Hide from a violent eruption
Cataclysmic engulfing us all.

Lay down (lay down)
Tonight (tonight)
In front of the things
That conquer us all.

Your body, it taunts me
Your flesh is, oh so haunting.

Children of the night.
Throw your hands up in the air.
We all know we've lost the fight.
Hope dies out and we can see the end.
Black days begin.

Walk down this path of temptation
Deny the flesh ignore whats crawling below.

Stay true (stay true)
Stay cold (stay cold)
In front of the things
That conquer us all!

Your body, it taunts me
Your flesh is, oh so haunting.

Children of the night.
Throw your hands up in the air.
We all know we've lost the fight.
Hope dies out and we can see the end.
Black days begin.

Your body, it taunts me
Your flesh is, oh so haunting.

Children of the night.
Throw your hands up in the air.
We all know we've lost the fight.
Hope dies out and we can see the end.

Children of the night.
Throw your hands up in the air.
We all know we've lost the fight.
Hope dies out and we can see the end.
Black days begin.




6. GALLOWS

This life starts
With a heartbeat,
Is it beat, beat, beat, beat, beating me down,
Like the loser I am.

I can't help
But to see
That success scares
The living shit out of me,
Like the loser I am.

Everytime I walk away,
Every word I never say.

Restless
Chasing shadows
Choices
Facing Gallows or,
Are you hanging by a thread,
Or swinging from the rope?
Don't think we don't see your scars
Are you afraid of who you are?

Are you afraid of who you are!?

Denial what subtle burn,
Is it burn, burn, burn, burn, burning me out,
Or feeding the flames?

Spread out the ash
Pretend to see
That you can
Still find some value in me;
Or defeat the flames?

Everytime I walk away;
Every word I never say.

Restless
Chasing shadows
Choices
Facing Gallows or,
Are you hanging by a thread,
Or swinging from the rope?
Don't think we don't see your scars
Are you afraid of who you are?

Oh my god,
What am I afraid of
Success or not having what it takes?

Oh my god,
I afraid of me
And everything that brings.

Restless
Chasing shadows
Choices
Facing Gallows or,
Are you hanging by a thread,
Or swinging from the rope?
Don't think we don't see your scars
Are you afraid of who you are?

Afraid of who you are?
Are you afraid of who you are!?!?




7. STORM TO PASS

Razor wire
Gift wraps the things we've done
Afterthoughts
Of past storms weathered before

Oh, no! Oh, no!
I watch the clouds roll in
Oh, no! Oh, no!
It's happening again

I'll be watching, waiting
Dreadful, Shaking
Will the storm pass over us today?
Will lightning strike our sins away?
Watching, Waiting
Falling, Shaking
Will the storm pass over us today?
Or is the future looking grey?

Aftermath
Much worse then it was before
Battle scars
Some are seen and some are not

Oh, no! Oh, no!
I watch the clouds roll in
Oh, no! Oh, no!
It's happening again

I'll be watching, waiting
Dreadful, Shaking
Will the storm pass over us today?
Will lightning strike our sins away?
Watching, Waiting
Falling, Shaking
Will the storm pass over us today?
Or is the future looking grey?

You can't hide from thunder
And I never thought
We'd turn out this way, yeah!
You can't hide from thunder

Watching, Waiting
Dreadful, Shaking
Will the storm pass over us today?
Will lightning strike our sins away?
Watching, Waiting
Falling, Shaking
Will the storm pass over us today?
Or is the future looking grey?

Hey!
Hey!




8. YOU WERE KING NOW YOU'RE UNCONSCIOUS

There is no light in sight
Only a tunnel of pain
Only your legs will carry you
Carry you to the end!

Live your life for yourself
Or live for the struggle at best

Just don't let it strangle you
Just don't let it strangle you!

And after all this
No one will carry you home
And without a thought

You let your guard fall to the ground
Thought you were the king

But now it's gone
Taste the air as you pull it in your lungs

Try to savior it for one more song

The thick of the battle
A metaphor for this life
You never see it hit you
Until it smashes you in the face!

You try as best as you can
And I knock you down again

Just don't let it strangle you
Just don't let it strangle you!

And after all this
No one will carry you home
And without a thought

You let your guard fall to the ground
Thought you were the king

But now it's gone
Taste the air as you pull it in your lungs
Try to savior it for one more song

Get up!
Get up now
Get up right now!
I scream to myself

Get up!
Get up now
Get up right now!
I scream at myself

And after all this
No one will carry you home
And without a thought

You let your guard fall to the ground
Thought you were the king

But now it's gone
Taste the air as you pull it in your lungs
Try to savior it for one more song
(Try to savior it for one more song)




9. INSATIABLE

Can't check myself at all
Break my fist on the fucking wall
Because raw instinct is all I know
And it suits me just fine
Convince myself that my
Actions aren't received as spite
Then passionently is how I go
And it suits me just fine

When I have everything I want
When will I be good enough
But I cant have everything
Cause nothing's good enough
I'm insatiable!
And I hunt down my dreams
It's the only thing I know

Suddenly anger cripples
Colors red everything around me
Sometimes we hurt the ones that we love
And it kills me inside!
Then I will pay a price you see
The cost is over baring
The price I pay could dreamed of
And it kills me inside!

When I have everything I want
When will I be good enough
But I cant have everything
Cause nothing's good enough
I'm insatiable!
And I hunt down my dreams
It's the only thing i know

I'm insatiable!
Dont look down on me
I can't bear this burden alone
This constant dark craving
Ripping apart my soul

Nothing's good enough
I'm insatiable!
And I hunt down my dreams
It's the only thing I know

I'm insatiable!
Dont look down on me
I can't bear this burden alone
This constant dark craving
Ripping apart my soul
I'm insatiable!!




10. SO WRONG

It used to be, I can make the pieces fit,
Break the edges, force fed all of this,
How could I ever be so wrong?
At our pace we are doomed before we begin,
Kinda makes you wonder what's the sense ,
How could I ever be so wrong?
(I know that fate keeps loving?)

Why can't hope (buckle back to it)
World fades to black (buckle back of it)
And our love, (there is a lack of it)
I won't forget you..

Simply good, whats done is dead and gone,
Can't forget, not for every long.
There's no pride involved in love.
You can't manufacture happiness,
Try forever you will be a miss,
There's no pride involved in love.
(No pride involved)
When all that I know is that I know nothing.

Why can't hope (buckle back to it)
World fades to black (buckle back of it)
And our love, (there is a lack of it)
I won't forget you..

You make me feel alive,
But nothing lasts forever,
Yet something deep inside,
It takes me home again.

Why can't hope (buckle back to it)
World fades to black (buckle back of it)
And our love, (there is a lack of it)
I won't forget you..

You make me feel alive,
But nothing lasts forever,
Yet something deep inside,
It takes me home again.

When all that I know is that I know nothing,
All that I know is I know nothing!!




11. RAVENOUS

All hail!
The tip of the spear
The misguided, unyeilding force
Unleashed about a foreign nightmare of pain
Is this what we want for ourselves
Creep crawl under your sheets
Cheat its way through the back door
Unaffected till we are affected

Then we push for war
Then we push for more
Then we push for war!

Ravenous and racing forward
Never looking back
We killed more then we need

Knives out
We bare our teeth
Strength and pain of what rules the world
End of days and were racing to red lights
Does that make sense to anyone else?
Deny any wrong doing
Pass the buck and then fake some more blame
Life’s a circle then we all reap the whirlwind

Then we push for war
Then we push for more
Then we push for war!

Ravenous and racing forward
Never looking back
We killed more then we need
Glutinous we feed our power
Never looking back
We killed more then we need

What goes around
Comes around
And around
And around
And hateful
Young men
Turn to old hateful men

What goes around
Comes around
And around
And around
And hateful
Young men
Turn to old dead men

Ravenous and racing forward
Never looking back
We've killed more then we need
Glutinous we feed our power
Never looking back
We killed more then we need
We killed more then we need!!




12. LONELY

So unafraid of what’s to come
I hit the ground and run
Not sure what’s coming next and never looking back

Hollow nights and empty days
Something has to change
Before it gets to late
And there’s no turning back

One by one we fit and then we fall
(then we fall)
One by one we fit and then we fall

Lonely, is this what we've become?
So lonely
Fragile and unloved
Lost inside ourselves
And blindly staring at the sun
So lonely
Is this what we've become?

Line them up they fall
Something to live for
Not sure who's coming next
But never looking back

I want something more
Something to live for
Before it gets to late
And there’s no turning back.

One by one we fit and then we fall
(then we fall)
One by one we fit and then we fall

Lonely, is this what we've become?
So lonely
Fragile and unloved
Lost inside ourselves
And blindly staring at the sun
So lonely
Is this what we've become?

One by one we fit and then we fall
(then we fall)
One by one we fit and then we fall

Lonely, is this what we've become?
So lonely
Fragile and unloved
Lost inside ourselves
And blindly staring at the sun
So lonely
Is this what we've become?

Is this what we've become?
So lonely
Fragile and unloved
Lost inside ourselves
And blindly staring at the sun
So lonely
Is this what we've become?




13. WAIT FOR YOU

It started with a kiss and turned out something else.
The blood coils in through my veins I think of no one else.
I never believed in much but I believe in this.
I’m incomplete without you, I’d kill to taste your kiss.

I’m lost and lonely,
Scared and hiding.
Blind without you.

When the world comes crashing down and the skies begin to fall,
I’ll wait for you
When the days grow old and long and my skins turns into stone,
I’ll wait for you
When the pain it seems too much and my heart starts beating out of touch I don’t need a thing,
I’ll wait for you

It's all so different now, emotions burn me out.
I have a lifeless touch, this distance leaves no doubt.
I fear it all too much but part of me believes.
As the years pass away you made me recognize,

I’m lost and lonely,
Scared and hiding.
Blind without you.

When the world comes crashing down and the skies begin to fall,
I’ll wait for you
When the days grow old and long and my skins turns into stone,
I’ll wait for you
When the pain it seems too much and my heart starts beating out of touch I don’t need a thing,
Cause I’ll wait for you...

Yeah..
Cause I’ll wait for you...

When the world comes crashing down and the skies begin to fall,
I’ll wait for you
When the days grow old and long and my skins turns into stone,
I’ll wait for you
When the pain it seems too much and my heart starts beating out of touch i don’t need a thing.
I know I don’t need a thing.
I’ll wait for you.
