The Infection tracks

Lyrics

1. THE VENOM INSIDE

The venom insde
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

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

I 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




2. FROZEN IN TIME

Suspicion growing
A feeling I cannot control
Communication
Communication low
The invasion is necessary
The dangers are secondary

This was never meant to be
A lifetime of instability
I guess I was always weak
Someone please rescue me

Frozen in time
Can't control what's inside of me
Frozen in time
I left my soul behind
I'm at the end of the line
Trapped in my mind
Empty and blind

I see myself dying
All these paranoid delusions frighten me
Manipulating vitality
An unspeakable evil latches on to agony

Attacking my body impurity spreading through me
Like a parasite
Desensitized to the world while the plagues controlling
Like a fucking parasite

The same demons keep haunting
Sending their warning
It's unrelenting

This was never meant to be
A lifetime of instability
I guess I was always weak
October the leaves buried me

Frozen in time
Can't control what's inside of me
Frozen in time
I left my soul behind
I'm at the end of the line
Trapped in my mind
Empty and blind




3. COMING ALIVE

There was a time I was afraid
Of getting close to you
Your potency was quite threatening
Fiber pure, touching scars
Feels good to finally hold you

It was my mistake
For not trusting you
It was my mistake
Well this is now

I'm no longer afraid
I'm coming alive
And no one can take it away
I'm coming alive

Unbelievable force
When you're close to my lips
When feeling the instensity you give me
I adore you
And always will
Psychoactive and delicate

It was my mistake
For not trusting you
It was my mistake
Well this is now

I'm no longer afraid
I'm coming alive
And no one can take it away
I'm coming alive

You saved me from these nightmares
You took control of me
You saved me from this heartaone
And never judged me




4. SECRETS OF THE DEAD

Faceless, subhuman
Ghattered 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 if flowing

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




5. THE DISAPPEARING SUN

This might be the last time you ever 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 if falling
The end is here
The final warning
The sun disappears

As my world id dying
So fear from home
Been stranged 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 fless is charred
Challencing, terrorizing, manipulating every single thought
As he close 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 warning
The sun disappears




6. IMPENDING DOOM

Have you ever seen blood in the moonlight?
It appears quite black
Have you ever seen spiders crawling
On the grave?

The grave that gave us the fear of loneliness
That turned un into hellions
We're like slugs in the sun
Tearing us apart

These problems don't have solutions
We're rotting inside this cell
Our bodies are like a prison
Only death will save us from this hell

Impending doom
Can't escape
Pitch black at the lake
The snow is falling can't escape
The evil approaches
I can't save you

These problems don't have solutions
We're rotting inside this cell
Our bodies are like a prison
Only death will save us from this hell

Jagged stairs leading nowhere
The clock is staring at me
Running away from the pain
The evil approaches
No one to save me

These problems don't have solutions
We're rotting inside this cell
Our bodies are like a prison
Only death will save us from this hell




7. ON BROKEN GLASS

It's just another sleepless night
The hunt is on
Looking for anything
To fill the void
Make me feel alive
Take me back to paradise

Cuz I'm walking on broken glass
I should know good things never fucking last
The reflections of a shattered past
They keep me walking on broken glass

A thousand eyes focus
Here is your god
Which one will sacrifice
Their innocence tonight?
Don't think twice
Take me back to paradise

Cuz I'm walking on broken glass
I should know good things never fucking last
The reflections of a shattered past
They keep me walking on broken glass

The nameless walking with their guide
For a chance to meet their god
And it just won't stop

Can't describe this satisfaction
Can't control the chain reaction
I employ you to fulfill this greed
Insensitive
On flesh I feed
Welcome to my hell

Make me feel alive
Take me back to paradise
Cuz I'm walking on broken glass
I should know good things never fucking last
The reflections of a shattered past
They keep me walking on broken glass




8. 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 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 for blood

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 for blood




9. TRY TO SURVIVE

A new day arises
As the city sleeps
No compromising
No promises to keep

We stand on our own again
The rain falls hard
Revealing the memories
Ten years gone

The life we share
Doesn't mean anything
If we don't try to survive

Visions overloading
Pulling me through time
back to the moment
When I realized
That our demise
Could have been caused by my hand

Been through just about everything
But we're still here
We still have so much to prove
To ourselves

The life we share
Doesn't mean anything
If we don't try to survive

There is so much left for us to do
Will you join me again?
I know I haven't been reliable in the past
You have had a hard time figuring me out
But I can promise you one thing
This journey's taught me to stand strong
Never again will I
Surrender my fears
Surrender my dreams
Surrender my soul
To the infection
