1. THIS PRESENT DARKNESS

In this present darkness
I fall upon broken knees
Crawl through weight depression haunted by and unborn ghost
I'll never know your fears
Never see me in your eyes
Curse the one that stole your name from
Me this is the monster that they create
From second of your conception
Minutes leading to death sentence will shackle me
And turn eyes red
I will constantly endure the pain of your creation
How can I lie awake grace
How can I lie awake my love
Will stay dead in this present darkness
I fall




2. DIVINATION

I always searched for an answer for my convictions
A troubled mind at 15 demonic visions
I saw you rape dand beaten
Who the hell is this monster that surounds my brain
I try to make some sense of this, try to break the mold

Divination

A power I wish I did not have now
I wake with sweat and bood scars of you dad choke
I wake from this nightmare to find it's the truth
Tell me now father what did we do
I'll never understand your actions...never speak to you
Don't try and correct your mistakes never trust in you
Fake fucker, fake father die




3. REFUSE TO SEE

One more time I feel my life slip
Through my finger tips I cry
My eyes bleed with pain...pain!
You never understood how I felt
You always shunned my dammed existing fate
You ran away from...me
He thought he could not run away
I told him pain denies soul Save your life

Refuse to See
He'll refuse to see
How my life is really going
It's time to worship but he does not care
Oh at one time he did
After 600 years it's getting old This godamn trial is done
You thought you could run and hide
You thought you could rise up
Motherfucker you were wrong

Refuse to see
Led to believe that i could gain your respect
You've never felt the need
Except at one time
His hands red with blood
Crucified a martyr for my sins
It didn't work...my soul will soon die like his
One more day has gone by
No one mourns his passing
The final shot went right through
His pain gone
Crucified all his ways
So many days filled with pain
Crucified all his sorrow
Refused to see!
