War of Will tracks

Lyrics


1. FORCE FED LIES

All hail another worthless remark is made
Of all that is and will be changed
We are all not ignorant and blind
We will never be rid of this

Force-fed your lies
You sow the seeds of their deceit
Force-fed your lies
They'll never have their fill
Until long after you're dead
You're just another number
To be checked and then balanced
A tax to extract

When you're tired from running their race and realize
The money's not worth the paper it's on
Think for yourself and you can never be bought
Then you will have the strength to weather
The oncoming storm

The oncoming storm is not what it seems
It's filled to the brim with ravenous creatures
Driven to rape and deceive




2. FLESH & BONE

Overcome their hate
Don't let them fool you
Into self-defeat or desperation
Let them choke on their envy
Hold fast to your own beliefs

Cowards die
Many times
Before they reach their own demise
The brave and the fearless
Taste it but once in their lives

Don't fear your day or reckoning
Make it fear you

Push
Push your past aside
Don't let fear eat you inside
Grow through the pain
You're more than flesh and bone

A hopeless existence
It's not a life I want to lead
There is no redemption
If you can't fight for yourself

Don't fear your day or reckoning
Make it fear you

Push
Push your past aside
Don't let fear eat you inside
Grow through the pain
You're more than flesh and bone

Push
Push your past aside
Don't let fear eat you inside
Grow through the pain
You're more than flesh and bone

I learn from the failures of others
I watch their worlds burn
Cast a shadow to hide their hate
While they do nothing to save themselves, to save themselves

Don't let their sorrows, their pain
Sway you from your true identity

You're more than flesh and bone
Flesh and bone




3. NEVER COMING BACK

Tell me your weak excuse
Of how I never cared to see
The pain you were put through
All you do is point the finger
And through your blame

What lies in the past
Is never coming back

It's the reality
Of your decisions

You can't run from the truth forever
It will always beat you in the end

As you stand there
Holding the shattered
Pieces of your life
Chiding everyone
For not protecting you
Believe that you're the martyr
And drowned in your own lies

What we had
Is never coming back
Never coming back




4. MY VACCINE

This is my vaccine from the world and all it's ignorance
Don't be afraid of the truth
The only way we will survive
Is to not ever let these fools blind our eyes
With their false sense of hope

Don't turn your back or let down your guard
You'll never see tomorrow
Prone to fear of wrath and torment
You hide your face
I don't wear a mask of lies to hide who I am

There's only devils out there
I see cowards everywhere
Devils out there

One day we'll find the answers
One day we'll know the truth
Till then I have this vaccine because there is no cure
Don't be afraid to live your life while alive
Our fate comes from within
Create your own immunity

I will take all my hate, my disdain for this world
Snap it's neck, leave it twisted and curled
This is my vaccine
There is no cure from this world of ignorance
Gutted of substance and wrought of indifference
I will not stand for this
This is my vaccine

There is no cure and there will never be
This is my vaccine




5. GET OVER IT

It's too late to take back all the stones that you have cast
I've made a fortress from them that can't be overthrown
When I am judged it won't be you I answer to
I take the blame for all the wrongs that I have done

I'm over this get over it
You don't own my life
I'm over this get over it
I do what must be done
I'm over this get over it
I wont get used to this
I'm over this get over it
So sick of you

I will not play your petty games
It's only in your head your lies become true
It's only in your head that these accusations make sense

I've ripped out my heart to get where I am
You can't stop doing what you've done to yourself
Left in the bitter cold, a fate of isolation

It's time to wake up and listen
I will not stand for your lies
No longer be your pawn
You're a worthless cunt
A plague unto society

Stay away from me




6. GHOST ALIVE

Hidden to the naked eye
Poisoned by atrocities
Slow death seeps rotting out of the soil

An empty shell of his former self
A breathing corpse, a ghost alive
The constant onslaught of pity and guilt
That can drive a man to take his own life
Medication blunting the pain
Deaden the urge to escape
To be rid of the horrors this swelling loss of insanity

Only time will heal the wounds
Salvation from becoming a breathing corpse
A ghost alive

A mind left scarred warped and mangled
From the twisted faces of the dead

Only time will heal the wounds
Salvation from becoming a breathing corpse
A ghost alive

Each waking day
Merely a curse in disguise
Subjected to visions
Of blood and murder in reprise

Crushing dreams of normalcy
Fleeting thoughts of perseverance
Are barely enough to survive

An empty shell of his former self
A breathing corpse, a ghost alive
The constant onslaught of pity and guilt
That can drive a man to take his own life




7. WAGE A WAR

You could say I've lived a foolish dream
Becoming exactly what I wanted to be
Don't let regret take the place of your dreams
This is your choice to make
How your name will go on
When you're dead and gone
This is your choice

Stand on your own wage your war
You must prove yourself
Fight back hold your ground
Stand on your own and test your strength

In your pursuit to find yourself
Sometimes your dreams become your nightmares
Don't be afraid to fight
Count only on yourself

Stand on your own wage your war
You must prove yourself
Fight back hold your ground
Stand on your own and test your strength




8. THE WILL TO OVERCOME

Will you have the courage to stand and shout at the world
You won't break me
I'll not bend my knee I'll be free
Because all I have is the will to find the truth inside me
I will be free from your irrational fantasies

Adhering to my code of honor
Resist romantic lies you've choked down all our throats
You have become a slave to your selfish vanity
You idols are pleasure, comfort, and apathy
This weakness will never set you free

When I die I will have left my mark on this world
You won't break me
I'll not bend my knee I'll be free
Because with my own strength
I have changed my destiny
Adhering to my code of honor
Resist romantic lies you've choked down all our throats
You have become a slave to your selfish vanity
Continuing on the path that you think you've forged
A road traveled by many
Now you make your choice
You must make your choice
Self - loathing or sanctity
You must make your choice




9. BEAST

Sometimes horrors can be blessings in disguise
Why don't you try fighting instead of wanting more
You disgust me with every complacent breath you take
It's far too easy to give up before you fall

I try so hard to keep my demons at bay
I try so hard to keep the beast inside caged

I clawed my way to get here by working harder than you
If you weren't so weak and petty you could be right here too
Weakness isn't something that will wash right off
Be marked with pride and honor or covered with filth and shame

I try so hard to keep my demons at bay
I try so hard to keep the beast inside caged
Chains on my throat to save yourself from me
Fighting the urge to keep the beast from you




10. NEVER-ENDING NIGHT

I'm sacrificing watching you grow
As I pay this price
I need to keep my good thoughts close by
So I can make it through this night

This never-ending night

Don't get me started on what it feels like
When everyone says that they're proud of me
Wilting away what's left inside
I can't stop this pounding in my head

It's myself in the mirror
That I can't stand

I killed the man I used to be
Family and friends - a luxury lost
If my failures are passed on to you
I must make sure you're strong

Any problems just let me know!
