Lyrics

1. THE VENOM INSIDE

The venom inside
Turned me into the enemy
Turned into what I hate
My apathy got the best of me
Blood boiled and lost my way

I never thought I'd be the one to blame
Have to live with constant shame
Everything that I put inside
Just to feel numb

I tried to escape
Push it away
Tried to hide
The venom inside

Tried to escape
Push it away
Tried to hide
The venom inside

This was nothing but moral abuse
Guess I just needed something new
What could I gain from solitude?
Or acting like a fool?

I tried to escape
Push it away
Tried to hide
The venom inside

Tried to escape
Push it away
Tried to hide
The venom inside

Disconnected, apathetic
It's so pathetic to be this frantic
I needed help! I needed help!
Like methadone for an addict

I tried to escape
Push it away
Tried to hide
The venom inside

Tried to escape
Push it away
Tried to hide
The venom inside




2. RESURRECTION

Free at last, finally tasting happiness;
5 years of hell for nothing
Trapped inside the mind of failure.
A wise man once said,
"That which does not kill us makes us stronger."
But we were dead, so are we now invincible?

Determination; perserverance; resolution...
Resurrection!

Final straw; underlying ignorance;
Consumed by greed and hate (and hate)
Kept under the feet of tyrants.
Reality kicked in;
Raced against time just to start all over!
Treated like shit, pushed aside and expendable

Determination; perserverance; resolution...
Resurrection!

We have become, so god damn powerful

All the beatings you gave us
We will use them against you

Determination, perserverance, resolution... resurrection
Free at last
Finally tasting happiness
Resurrection




3. POWER TRIP

Face to face
No time to waste
This is the time for revenge
Your claim to faim
Of crushing dreams
Your control has no hold on me

I hate the way
You have no shame
You act like nothing'd happened
It's time to rise
The final fight
This is the last time

I will not fall again
I will not let you win
Fuck your power trip

I'll throw away
The wasted days
The chance for revenge
My claim fo fame
Ended in vain
This was the last time

You are the one who's forsaken it all
Nothing has changed so together
We fall
I am the one who's led us to believe
You can't change me




4. EMPIRE

Do you believe in me
Enough to sacrifice
Do you believe in me
Enough to end your life

Do you believe in me
Enough to kill for me
Do you believe in me
Enough to die for me
Come on and join me
Grab my hand
Together we will feast on the blood of the weak

Empire
Destroying dignity
Empire
Destroying humanity
When you walk the path
You will discover a world undreamed of
Your suffering will be legendary
Do you believe in suffering

Do you believe in me
Enough to slay your brother
Do you believe in me
Enough to betray your family
Come on and join me
Grab my hand
Together we will feast on the blood of the weak

Empire
Destroying dignity
Empire
Destroying humanity

When you walk the path
Your feelings won't betray you
When you walk the path
Your agony will elate you

Empire
Destroying dignity
Empire
Destroying humanity




5. THE DISAPPEARING SUN

This might be the last time you see me
But you can trust I did my best
As complex as all this seems
It's much more than a test

The sky is falling
The end is here
The final warning
The sun disappears

As my world is dying
So far from home
Been stranded in this empty abyss
Darkness surrounds me
Lifeless

The sky is falling
The end is here
The final warning
The sun disappears

Existence
Search for a new beginning
Persistent
Something always chasing me
This demon's covered in scars
Menacing
Burnt by the sun his flesh charred
Challenging, terrorizing, manipulating every single thought
As he closes in
My will must be strong
Or he'll stab you in the fucking back
I won't turn to dust

The sky is falling
The end is here
The final warning
The sun disappears




6. SEVERED

Stay awake to decide
Are you coming back?
Is this my sanity?
I can't forgive
Oh is it the same to me?
I can't take your place
I'll never see you, never flee from me
Severed
Lost lies in the house I bring
I can't fucking see
I can never pull your self from me
I can't focus
Libertine my "said to be"
I will never save you
Wait...today is not the same
Severed




7. DESTROY AND DOMINATE

I am the bastard son
The expendable one
War is in my blood
Rage is in my heart
The lone wolf inside me
No home, no family
Just wanted serenity
But you pushed
You pushed me
You pushed me
The lone wolf inside me
Needs to be set free

One by one I'll crush you all
Day by day destroy and dominate
Blood
Blood for blood
Destroy, destroy and dominate

Rejected by society
The same one that created me
And I don't care what you say anymore
I am no longer your slave
The lone wolf inside me
Has finally been set free

One by one I'll crush you all
Day by day destroy and dominate
Blood
Blood for blood
Destroy, destroy and dominate

Dominate.

One by one I'll crush you all
Day by day destroy and dominate
Blood
Blood for blood
Destroy, destroy and dominate




8. SIX

She has done so many things it's so surreal
She has seen so many things it's so unreal
She has been almost everywhere and tasted everything
She has been a dream since birth who could conquer Everything

Night after night after every single night
She never gave up!
Fight after fight after motherfucking fight
She came out on top!

One rule, one way of life
Only, the strong survive

Never back down never back down
destroying everything

Blood all the blood every single drop of blood
She sucks it up!
Breath every breath every single damn breath
She screams with love!

One rule, one way of life
Only, the strong survive

Never back down never back down
Destroying everything
Nobody in this world will ever stop her
Nobody in this world will ever touch her
Everybody in this world will want to be her
Everybody in this world just needs to see her

She's everything
And she'll destroy the world
Never back down never back down
Destroying everything!




9. THE DEHUMANIZING PROCESS

Explode

Clear the way the new king has arrived
To take your place while I've got you on your
Knees
I always had this vision of who I'd become
A powerful giant who could rule with ease
And who would

Bring the truth
I will bring the truth
Your time is up-there's no chance left for you

Bring the truth
I will bring the truth
Your time is up as I end it for you

Was it me or were you just afraid
When you promised me nothing but a throne
When time comes you will hide the fact
That you will only be one way
A fake liar

You can try to hide
It will all come back to you
You shatter dreams before they're fully dreamt
You're a pig and should die
I would feel no remorse
I honestly absolutely fucking hate you
Hate you

You can't change this
The only thing you have to remember is

Bury my dreams... I will bury you




10. DEAD INSIDE

I felt so alone
You left feeling so empty and needing
Can't see the glitter in you
You called me all the time
Hiding behind your lies materialistic
Go away
You don't know what it's like to be dead inside
You called him a friend to help you get through it
I see your true face now
Well my tears are gone, I am happy now
Thanks for making it clear
Go away
You don't know what it's like to be dead inside
I am dead to you
You take my heart and used it as a tool
I wish that this would just go away
You can't find love you can't cry tears
And you won't be crying alone
Who are you today...another face erased




11. PAINTING THE WHITE TO GREY

Face I am nothing face
Complete by sarcastic tastes
What a waste I think I'd rather die
Wanting never gaining I find myself pondering life
Always situations I can never hide
Crying tears of anger, hate
Depressed I never know the me, never know what to do
Slit pour out the life a bottle of the "vive"
A desperate cry for something else to justify
I'm in a daze caused by pain
A failing force that wants to change
Painting the white to grey
Numb body shivering
Blood dripping from the skin
Painting the white to grey
Plastic always drastic
A vision of a psychopathic with a razor crawling through the attic
I know somewhere out there someone cares
Wanting me to get my head out of the clouds as they think It's time repair
These scars will never clear
I'll never be the same little one with hopes of one day maybe being sane
I might have tried before...but I locked the door
Now I need a reason to unlock it
I'm in a daze caused by pain
A failing force that wants to change
Painting the white to grey
Numb body shivering
Blood dripping from the skin
Painting the white to grey
Cutting and popping
I know I'm not the definition of your model I'm always Dropping
Lying and crying
I rarely find the relevance in always competing or Trying...
I take dying
I need to feel the shame in what it was that I did
Cold
In the back of a puppeteer bathroom floor is where I tried To die




12. NOTHING REMAINS

I shout these words to those who never listened
I pen this letter with the utmost conviction
It's been dark in here, cold and relentless
Its been too long, I can no longer fight this

Too late to change my mind
Nothing remains
I've silenced the pain

All these years passed
No one heard true feelings
You continued to act like you knew me
Did you ever stop to think that I'd be able
To look in your eyes and say that im stable

Too late to, change my mind
Nothing remains
I've silenced the pain

Don't tell me, that I am taking the easy way, out (x2)

Noooooo

No underlying message to figure out
What you got from me is what I put out (x2)

No one knew a thing about me
Just longing to be accepted
Wait till you see what I've become
My lifelessness (x2)

Too late to, change my mind
Nothing remains
I've silenced the pain.




13. SALVATION

Endless nights filled with misery
Sick of familiar patterns
Bruise after cut
Can't wash away my scars
This is the night of....salvation
On the night of salvation
This life always pained me
Tired of the same old routine
All lies I've told
Can't hide the little things
This is the night of....salvation
On the night of salvation
Life has been left behind me
I will not cower away
Adrenaline stronger than ever
Feel it all come together
On the night of...salvation
On the night of salvation
Life has been left behind me
I will not cower away




14. SECRETS OF THE DEAD

Faceless, subhuman
Shattered souls I feed
Experimenting
Dead eyes watching me

Bow down
Sheep to the slaughter
Bow down
Follow the creator
Into the path of the unknown
Where they must walk alone

The unholy are lifeless
Sunken eyes dripping black
The secrets of the dead

Hopeless, disgusting
Pathetic human beings
Annihilation
Of what you believe

Now you will bow down
Sheep to the slaughter
Bow down
Follow the creator
Into the path of the unknown
Where they must walk alone

The unholy are lifeless
Sunken eyes dripping black
The secrets of the dead

Take control of my every thing
Killing them systematically
My power is growing
Their blood is flowing

The unholy are lifeless
Sunken eyes dripping black
The secrets of the dead
They keep calling me back
They keep calling me back
They keep calling me back




15. THE FLAME

Her eyes opened
After that terrible night
Would she ever be the same
A revelation of her own demise
No one left but herself to blame

Her silence only fueled the flame
And now the angels
Have lost their wings
In daddy's playground
Nothing is what it seems
This was the last time
That he'd see her
That he'd touch her
That he'd make his little girl scream out loud

I'm gonna pound you into oblivion
I will make you fucking bleed
There is no escaping me
This is your destiny

He came to her
Through the window again
The fan blowing to hide the noise
No hesitation from the devil inside
Everyone he touched was destroyed

His madness only fueled the flame
And now the angels
Have lost their wings
In daddy's playground
This was the last time
That he'd see her
That he'd touch her
That he'd make his little girl scream out loud

I'm gonna pound you into oblivion
I will make you fucking bleed
There is no escaping me
This is your destiny

Time to walk with me
Time to die
Let me take you somewhere secluded
Where only the trees can see
If I can't have you no one will
Didn't you know it was always me

Your flame now burned out
You were daddy's little girl
Your flame now burned out
Oh god what have I done




16. PURE HATRED

I have told you things neeed to change
You never listened or came to my aid
The vicious cycle has not changed
My time's spent rearranged

Motherfuck it all
I can't stand this
Remember when I said
Everyone makes me sick
Well nothing has changed

I hate everyone

This vicious cycle still remains
Constant clusterfuck, bloodstains
Ignorance, you kill for God
Expression not allowed

You fucked it up
With your motherfucking games
Remember when I said
I was so ashamed
Well nothing has changed

You have to
Pick and choose your fights
You have to
Come out alive

I have told you things neeed to change
You never listened or came to my aid
The vicious cycle has not changed
My judgment fades away

You'll never change me
Remember we are through
I am staying here
To betray all of you
And nothing will change
