1. SCREAMS OF THE UNDEAD

Every single time I feel the burn I try to throw it away.
A fast fix for the brokenness of everyday.
Its like the pain is building up, it's swelling up,
i've got to choke it down and break it down until it's broke down.
It's like a shard of glass, it's like a broken piece.
Of everything I hate, it's everything in me,
A burnt heart stains black the blood it flows.
A dead soul will overshadow.

Push it out. It's everything you never were,
Push it out. I want to see it shatter.

And everyday I see my life rewind tearing through dreams I find I'm wide awake.
And even when it's wrong I start to learn, and then I do it again.

I reach out to grasp and get a broken hand,
And everyone is going to turn their backs.
I want to take them down,
and strike them down and leave them struck down.
Its like I'm made to fail with everything I gain.
Just an infected piece in a defective game.
My two hands give birth to nothing right.
A black past is an effective foresight.

Push it out, it's everything you never were.
Push it out, I want to see it shatter.

And everyday I see my life rewind tearing through dreams I find I'm wide awake.
And everything is building up, a pale heart is an empty cup,

If nothing ever changes, I'm breaking down, giving up.
Burn it out, let it go, break it all, lose control,
force it out, bring it through, pass it down, make it new.
Kill the pain, scrape it off, leave it here, make it stop.
Tear it down, bleed it out, all the hate, see it straight.
No one ever told me that it would all stay the same.
Everyday I fall on shards of my hatred and shame.




2. I HAVE SEEN WHERE IT GROWS

A shell for the earth, all seasons reverse.
A life inside out in a jet-black hearse.
The feel of pain and the taste of dirt.
A darkened sky and the loss of worth.
Lower me down under glorious green.
Eternity waits on a broken machine.
Exit the soul in a vibrant white.
Leaving the shell in the dead of night.

Life is a path, Death a destination.

I've met the end of being, my eyes are open wide.
I feel myself depleting, and watch my body die.

A step to the throne, I stand alone.
A vacant mind and a destined home.
Engaging the end in a seamless gaze.
Like blind i climb through the tortured blaze.
Raise me up into white unstained eternity gained, only life remains.
Forever the scars have been washed away
Like blood on the brow of a forgotten day.

Life is a path, Death a destination.

I've met the end of being, my eyes are open wide.
I feel myself depleting, and watch my body die.

Life is a path, Death a destination




3. INFECTED

I still wonder when the medicine will take it's effect
And the injection they made, it's all just left me the same
I'ts hard to concentrate with echos of your voice in my head
From all you said, im still paralyzed

But I'm almost out of breath from saying things that I'll regret, that I'll regret.
My time is over
I can't do this alone
But I'm almost out of breath from saying things that I'll regret, that I'll regret.
My time is over
I can't do this alone

I'm infected with you, pull the plug already
Tell me before I go that you're infected with me
I'm infected with you, pull the plug already
Tell me before I go that you're infected with me

I can't remember if I ever took a minute to say
That if it had to be now, I'm glad it had to be me
I can't recuperate, I'm never going to leave here alive
Just help me through this
Don't let me die here

But I'm almost out of breath from saying things that I'll regret, that I'll regret.
My time is over
I can't do this alone
But I'm almost out of breath from saying things that I'll regret, that I'll regret.
My time is over
I can't do this alone

I'm infected with you, pull the plug already
Tell me before I go that you're infected with me
I'm infected with you, pull the plug already
Tell me before I go that you're infected with me

I'm killing time just trying to find the words that fall so short of you.
I'm losing sleep, I can't compete, I'm giving up
I can't do this alone




4. MY THROAT IS AN OPEN GRAVE

We lay face down in pale solitude
To save face, we pulled our walls in front of you
To the same place where we danced in front of you
We fell from grace and watched the hope fall from your face

This isn't me I used to say
All the love was so gone
It feels good to be alive
I've been dead for so long

And all those broken promises
I can't face, afraid if someone notices, i lose my place
Fractures, broken, paralyzed
I need some space, tear me open, analyze

This isn't me I used to say
All the love was so gone
It feels good to be alive
I've been dead for so long

Wake up screaming, I'm awake and dreaming
And I won't stop breathing until my heart stops beating

This isn't me I used to say
All the love was so gone
It feels good to be alive
I've been dead for so long




5. THROUGHT THE BLACK

I've never been the type to turn my back and run
It's just never appealed to me to be the same as everyone
And when it comes to shove and I can't see you through the black
I'm going to scream your name till you come back
And every time I play with fire, I'm going to Burn, Burn, Burn until I learn
And everytime I do it myself, I'm going to hate, hate, hate
It's time to get it straight
I bury sick side, I tear from the inside out
I follow the downside, I'm waiting for something else

I know that you'll be here and I'll be waiting
I know that you'll be near and I'll be waiting
I turn it back and question everything in site

It's like I try to fall again when everything is going right
And everything that matters isn't everything in site
It's taking every bit of me to keep this all inside
I've never been the type to turn my back and run
It's just never appealed to me to be the same as everyone
And when it comes to shove, and I can't see you through the black
I'm going to scream your name till you come back
I bury sick side, I tear from the inside out
I follow the downside, I'm waiting for something else.

I know that you'll be here and I'll be waiting
I know that you'll be near and I'll be waiting

Lost my mind and I've lost track
gonna scream your name till you come back
Scream your name, lost my mind

I know that you'll be here and I'll be waiting
I know that you'll be near and I'll be waiting
(Lost my mind) I'll be waiting
I'll scream your name till you come back




6. TURN YOUR BACK AND RUN

I'm growing partial to detesting a disease in me
It's head swells into beautiful
Dependency with teeth that feed on flesh and everything.
I swear I am not
A small price to bleed and give you everything that you want
Dancing with the spirit, giving heart to pump a dirty vein
Leaving with a scar, a uniform to bruise a perfect stain
Anything you hate will be the root of everything you breathe
Breathing in the dirt will leave you hating all that you conceive

I try to push myself up, I'm breaking from the inside
I'm slipping through the cracks and I try to push it out of mind
Switch, you've got to turn your back and run

To push it out is just a patch to heal a gaping wound
A brass tack to pin a hair and heal a broken tomb
I never thought I'd be the one to bring it down to this
My last thought is through a statement and a shattered fist
Face down, fearless, light me up, end this

I try to push myself up, I'm breaking from the inside
I'm slipping through the cracks and I try to push it out of mind
Switch, you've got to turn your back and run

Microns from the flame head
Beat my hands to proceed nothing
Staring into souls with blind eyes
Taking the throne in my tiny hand
And chase it with the pain
You won't have life until you run
You got to give it all away

I try to push myself up, I'm breaking from the inside
I'm slipping through the cracks and I try to push it out of mind
Switch, you've got to turn your back and run




7. AND THE SKY WENT RED

And blindly we held your hand and threw you down
We cursed your name, turned our backs and begged you to embrace us




8. AS WE WEPT

I will stand and fight to justify you
You have bled and died to justify me

Force me down into hate
Your freedom will stop when I can't breath
I'm taking the path that I don't need
I'm taking the place so it won't bleed
Broken out and turned away
Burned to the ground and change the face
Bled to death and turned to gray
Resurrect again to say
I made my promise, and now I've fallen
Through broken pieces I set you

I will stand and fight to justify you
You have bled and died to justify me

Let me see it all die in front of myself so I can't lie
A hollow design for the new side
Exterior death for the old side
This is the end of the last time
Bury the old and say the name
break the mold and new remain
Resurrect again to say

I made my promise, and now I've fallen
through broken pieces I see you
I will stand and fight to justify you
You have bled and died to justify me
A lifeless body, a broken soul
I fall to zero, I've lost control

I've lost control, I will stand and fight to justify you
You have bled and died to justify me




9. A BROKEN UPPER HAND

Trapped behind my state of mind, I took your words and now I'm blind
And everything you've given just kills me
Your words swarm me through my soul like locusts
Eating away at any glimpse of focus
Their eyes flaming red like pain.
Filling the void once righteous and bloodstained
But words can't kill the light inside me that tears me from the hate that binds me
I feel it crawling up my spine
But I'll cut it off before it reaches the bloodline
You'll never fade me out, you'll never turn me off
You'll never reach the end, you'll never hear enough
You're half-grasp can't exterminate my stand
You can't rule with a broken upper hand
A fragment of what's been left behind
Trapped behind my state of mind, I took your words and now I'm blind
And everything you've given just kills me
Your face brings out the hate that rots me
The face of everyday that haunts me
I can't pull away my blank stare
A thousand times should prove I don't care
But hands can't steal the light that makes me
Or bring me to the fate that breaks me I feel it crawling up my spine
But I'll cut it off before it reaches the bloodline
You'll never fade me out, you'll never turn me off
You'll never reach the end, you'll never hear enough
You're the half-grasp can't exterminate my stand
You can't rule with a broken upper hand
A fragment of what's been left behind
Trapped behind my state of mind, I took your words and now I'm blind
And everything you've given just kills me




10. THE GAUNTLET

I hold you in like a deep breath
Feel you like the last beautiful touch before a final rest
I know I'll see you forever
I want it painted black and red

It's so beautiful to me, it's everything I see
It's so beautiful to me, but it's nothing that I need

And I can't taste anything less
Every time I'm forced down
To be with yourself, take all the blood you want
But not from here
