1. ILLUMINAUDIO

I ventured into the dark to search for a torch.
And it would light the path ahead.
Over mountains so high, far and wide.
Searching for a place to rest my head.
On different roads I travel, but I remain the same.
Facing fear with no fear on my face.
Through all the roads I traveled,
I remained the same.
Facing my fear.




2. CAVES

Are you ready to take a chance and risk it all?
It's do or die, fight or flight.
Do you want to feel alive? (feel alive)
So would you play a game of russian roulette
To save your life?
Are you in?
Are you in?
Or will you flee to safety and wonder what could've been?
Don't be afraid, don't ever be afraid.
Oh, you've been hiding. you've been hiding.
You've been hiding in the shadows.
When you're afraid, when you're afraid.
Take a chance, don't let it weigh you down.
You gotta get out of there.
When you're afraid, when you're afraid
Take a chance, don't let it weigh you down.
You gotta get out.
You're trapped in a cave, confined.
Falling back to the comfort of your world.
The last time you walked away from this,
You were looking back to see what you missed.
When you're afraid, when you're afraid,
Take a chance, don't let it weigh you down.
You gotta get out of there.
When you're afraid, when you're afraid,
Take a chance, don't let it weigh you down.
You gotta get out.
Take a chance, take a breath,
Take a shot with a gun to your head.
Take a chance, take a breath,
Take a shot like the gun is to your head.
Like the gun is to your head.
When you're afraid, when you're afraid,
Take a chance, don't let it weigh you down.
You gotta get out of there.
When you're afraid, when you're afraid,
Take a chance, don't let it weigh you down.
You gotta get out.
Stop hiding in the shadows.




3. LOVE IS A CAT FROM HELL (FT. VIC FUENTES OF PIERCE THE VEIL)

I see the way that you act.
I'm not impressed by any of your lies.
I see the way you pretend to be so collect.
You're out of your mind.
You fell over the words that you dropped on the ground.
You're not fooling anybody,
And I'm not fooling around.
What goes around comes back around.
It's coming around for you.
So what made you think
I wouldn't eventually come out of my skull?
Above you I hold your secrets.
They're hanging right above your head.
And you can bet that they'll believe.
And I believe that you are blackmailed and defeated.
So what good are your words anyway?
They're just a series of acting and plays.
What good are your words anyway?
Somber. dim lights. somber. dim lights.
Your facade, its not true.
It's not you, what a shame...
The way you are is why you feel the way you do.
Oh your fallacies.
I see the way that you act.
I'm not impressed by any of your lies.
I see the way you pretend to be so collect.
You're out of your mind.
You fell over the words that you dropped on the ground.
You're not fooling anybody,
An I'm not fooling around.
What goes around comes back around.
It's coming around for you.
So what made you think
I wouldn't eventually come out of my skull? (your destiny)
Above all I hold the secrets.
They're hanging right above your head baby.
You are defeated. (this time its coming back around)
You are defeated. blackmailed and defeated.
Somber. dim lights. somber. dim lights.
Above you I hold your secrets.
They're hanging right above your head.
And you can bet that they'll believe.
I believe that you are blackmailed and defeated.




4. MODERN WOLF HAIR

You yell my name, but will I be coming?
Should I be running?
Should I believe in you?
You yell my name, but will I be coming?
Should I be running?
Should I believe in you? (in you)
I've wasted all this time trying to stand by your side
The wolves are coming out tonight,
For they have heard your cry,
And no one will believe you now.
There's no place to hide.
And now the wolves that you have cried,
Will eat you alive.
It's just you out in the field.
They're showing their teeth behind your back.
They're foaming at the mouth while
They're waiting to attack.
Howling in your ears as they surround you.
They smell you, they feed off your cry.
I've wasted all this time trying to stand by your side.
The wolves are coming out tonight,
For they have heard your cry.
And no one will believe you now.
There's no place to hide.
And now the wolves that you have cried,
Will eat you alive.
Quite the alarmist that you are
To have worried the people of the village.
Wipe that smile off your fucking face.
This is no laughing matter.
Under the moon, they mock your cry,
With their howling at night.
Will you be fast enough to lose them,
Or will they catch you?
Well you'll run for your life,
There's nowhere to hide.
And you'll flee...
Run for your life.
You are the victim, you are the pray.
You are the victim, you are the pray.
I've wasted all thus tune trying to stand by your side.
Wolves are coming out,
They have heard your cry.
No one will believe you.
No place to hide.
The wolves are coming out tonight to eat you alive.




5. NOTES IN CONSTELLATIONS

I see her smile in her sleep.
I know that she's a dreamer.
Oh, I follow every move she makes.
It's been a long, long night.
Say you're mine, say you're mine.
Can I keep you tonight?
Tonight...and we dance around just like constellations.
You keep my body warm.
And we dance around just like constellations.
You're keeping me awake at night.
You make my body warm.
And I fall for her like snow from the sky.
Gracefully I land in her arms.
But I melted away like snow into the ground.
I told her I've gotta go, I've gotta go.
And we dance around just like constellations.
You keep my body warm.
And we dance around just like constellations.
You're keeping me awake at night.
You make my body warm.
It's been a long, long night.
You said you were mine.
I felt so bad but I had to go.
No she never wanted me to leave her behind.
No she never wanted me to leave her. (to leave her)
So long, so long,
And we dance around just like constellations.
We dance around just like constellations.
We dance around, we dance around,
We dance around, we dance around,
We dance around, we dance around,
You make my body warm,
You make my body warm.




6. SCAREMONGER

Why are you so loud?
You've said it enough.
I'm standing right here, but can you see me?
All of my time, all of my soul.
I want to laugh again, and live again, and love.
My own way.
The lies engraved will never be erased.
The fear and pain embedded in my brain.
The words pushed out all that I am inside.
Manipulating all that I love.
All my desire you took as your own.
All of my sorrow.
Its not enough, not enough for your hunger.
Dismantle my being.
Oh, let me out. let me be free.
Dismember everything, making me doubt what I'm about.
Let me be free.
Can I just float away?
Can I just disappear?
All of my desire you took as your own.
All of my sorrow.
It's not enough, not enough for your hunger.
I melt down (melting down)
I'm melting down.
Finally there is no sound.
I'm standing in front of you but can you see me?
I'm melt down.
All my desire you took it as your own.
All of my sorrow.
It's not enough, not enough for your hunger.
It's not enough, not enough for your hunger.




7. HIS STORY REPEATS ITSELF

We the people are gathering to say,
That here this day we're taking,
Taking what's rightfully ours.

This war will tear apart the sky,
Letting through the light.
And we will survive

You are the ruler of lies.
I see it in your eyes.
They're the window to your soul.
And we all know
This is our last chance to overthrow
The king and all his men,
So we can see the light again.

This war will tear apart the sky,
Letting through the light.
And we will survive, and we'll sing.
Marching onward, we're singing for our freedom.

Oh, what gave you the power to take the love from the woman?
Oh, what gave you the power to take the laughter from the children?
You can't blame them.
They're just doing what they think is right.
You can't blame them.
They're just doing what they think is right.

This has become impossible, impossible.
This has become impossible, impossible, impossible...

This war will tear apart the sky.
Letting through the light.
And we will survive, and we'll sing.
Marching onward, we're singing for our freedom.




8. LET US BURN ONE

I thought I knew you, thought you cared.
It was fooling to think that you were there.
Oh the fire was burning me up while your infamy was bringing me down.
And you were never there, you were never there.
I gave it all to you.
Everything I had and then you took my soul.
You took my soul away.
I gave it all to you.
Everything I had and then you took my soul away.
You took my soul away.
I'm not much of drinker but you poured me a glass,
Filling it up with your lies.
How I drank it fast...down.
Down it went.
Intoxicated with the lies you told me.
But now I see you.
You thought that I was blind.
Thought that I was blind.
But surely I can see and you will burn for this.
You'll burn for this. you'll burn for this.
You'll burn...
I gave it all to you.
Everything I had and then you took my soul.
You took my soul away.
I gave it all to you.
Everything I had and then you took my soul.
You took my soul away.
Oh, I am the weight of the world.
I'm crashing down upon you.
I am the fire, I am the flame.
I'll fight your fire.
I'll fight it with my fire.
I'll fight it with my fire...
Now you're trembling.
I gave it all to you.
Everything I had and then you took my soul.
You took my soul away.
I gave it all to you.
Everything I had and then you took my soul.
You took my soul away.
And I fight your fire with my fire,
And now you're trembling in your skin again.
And I fight your fire with my fire,
And now you're trembling in your skin.
In your skin.




9. HEY ZEUS! THE DUNGEON

I come from down in the catacombs of the opera house.
I hide my face while I long for her.
While I long for her lovely voice.
I long for her lovely voice.
Her lovely voice. her lovely voice.
She sings la da da da.
Through every crack the voice of an angel.
She doesn't know who I am, for I am a ghost.
Oh, I am a ghost to her.
She doesn't know who I am and she never will
Unless I can make her believe.
I've gotta make her believe in the darker side of me.
So I ask her...
Take my hand and follow me on this journey to the underworld
How I want her to want me.
Her soaring voice carries into my mind.
I'm gonna take her away,
With me she will stay forever.
Don't deny me, understand that I am a monster.
I am a monster.
Won't you come with me now?
She doesn't know who I am,
For I am a ghost.
Oh, I am a ghost to her.
She doesn't know who I am, and she never will
Unless I can make her believe.
In me, in me, in me...
This face is deceitful when it smiles,
It doesn't show how desperate I am inside.
So come with me and we'll go,
Believe in me and I'll show you who I am.
So you can see the man behind the monster that I am.
Fighting my identity, I'll come take you away.
She doesn't know who I am,
For I am a ghost to her.
She doesn't know who I am and she never will.
No she never, never will believe. believe in me...




10. STRATOVOLCANO MOUTH

Let it all out.
Let, let it all out,
Let, let it all out.
Let, let it go.
Let it all out.
Let, let it all out.
Let it all out.
Explode.
If mother earth was your body,
And the inner core was your fury,
Then the lava that flows in the chamber
Below is your adrenaline
In a single second are a thousand thoughts.
But only one of them makes sense to you.
For so long you've held it in.
Everyday you're getting closer.
Explode into the air.
Explode into the air.
Are you alive?
Are you livid?
Yes are you afraid, are you afraid of what you hold inside?
In a single second are a thousand thoughts.
But only one of them makes sense to you.
For so long you've held it in.
Everyday you're getting closer.
Explode into the air.
Explode into the air.
For so long you've held it in.
Everyday you're getting closer.
Explode into the air.
Explode into the air.
You're breathing heavy.
You close your eyes.
Your hands are shaking, but you hold it in.
You try to stay calm, you try to hold it back.
But you can't seem to rest.
Yeah your heart is breaking right out of your chest. (Explode)
And this is what it feels like to be a volcano.
Will it tear you up inside?
Let it all,
Let, let it all out. let it all out.
Just let it go.
Let it all out.
Let, let it all out. let it all out.
Explode out your throat.
For so long you've held it in,
Everyday you're getting closer.
Explode into the air.
Explode into the air.
For so long you've held it in,
Everyday you're getting closer.
Explode into the air.
Explode into the air.
Explode out your throat, explode out your throat.




11. THOSE WHO SLAY TOGETHER, STAY TOGETHER

Light came through a crack in the wall.
That red sun slowly rose.
At the break of dawn they came for us.
For a while we were safe and sound.
They came like thieves and robbed our town,
Of all the life,
Of everything we knew.
The living versus the dead.
Pray to your god.
Hell is on its way.
Hell was rolling in like a rancid fog,
And the world that we knew was raining blood.
Here we are, we knew the day would come.
Those who slay together, stay together in the end.
Crimson irises, the army of the infected.
They smelled our scent, sensed our fear.
They knew where we were.
The artist of the night,
They're painting the town red with blood.
They came through the door like a flood,
Like a flood.
A force too strong to handle.
We were attacked like a candle
Surrounded by demons that don't want the light.
They darkened our ability to see through the night.
Come through hell or high water.
We'll never leave one another alone.
This plague has taken control of us.
Come through hell or high water.
We die only to be born into a monstrosity.
Light came through the crack in the wall.
That red sun slowly fell down
And we devoured all that we could.
Oh yes we did.
We immersed ourselves in all the blood.
Biting each and everyone.
The army of the infected.
We are the infected.
We are the infected.
Here we are, we knew this day would come.
Those who slay together, stay together.
Here we are, we knew this day would come.
Those who slay together, stay together in the end.




12. CLOSED EYES STILL LOOK FORWARD

When you know that you finally made it,
Can you make your way back,
Make your way back home?
I ventured into the dark to search
For a torch that would light the path ahead.
Over mountains so high, far and wide.
Searching for a place to rest my head.
On different roads I traveled,
But I remained the same.
Facing fears with no fear on my face.
Through all the roads I traveled,
I remained the same, facing my fear.
When you know that you finally made it,
Can you make your back,
Make your way back home?
You're on your own,
You're all alone out here.
Find your way back home...(find your way back home)
From the darkness I came,
In my hand was a torch that I found along the way.
And in the distance I saw a house
With a light that lit the porch.
I found a place to rest my head.
On different roads I traveled,
But I remained the same,
Facing fears with no fear on my face.
Through all the roads I traveled,
I remained the same.
Facing my fear,
When you know that you finally made it,
Can you make your back,
Make your way back home?
You're on your own,
You're all alone out here,
Find your way back home.
