As You Drown

Reflection tracks

Lyrics

1. RUINS & DEAD ENDS

King of ruins master of dead ends
Didn't even break, just slowly bend
Carve me a smile, as I...slip away

Nothing seems to seep through
No impacts made, no voices head
And all that I can do
Is Wait here for the end

Something is holding me down
Something is holding me down
My head below the waterline

Sinking faster now
Falling to the end
Sinking faster now
It all fades as I descend

Watch me fall...down!
Nothing seems to seep through
No impacts made, no voices heard
And all that I can do
Is wait here for the end

My head below the waterline!




2. HORNS

The eraser of all things,
The black hole that lives inside
Is it salvation or disease ?
With every single move,
With every single breath
It wipes away all life in sight

A darkness lives in me
And it is ever-feeding, ever-growing
A darkness lives in you
And it will swallow all...

This is where I grew wings

All I thought I had all I thought was
Now gives in to...
An unstoppable force, devouring it all
To bring an age of nothing

A darkness lives in me
The time has come to redefine...

This is where I grew horns

The eraser of all things,
The black hole that lives inside
My beautiful disease




3. WHAT IS WORST

Our blood begins to boil
You're measured down to low
Now ask yourself - what is worst ?

Hated, spit on...
Measured down to low is what you are
We bring it to a new state

We are who we are
No need to bring this on
Oh, lowest of the low
You've stained me far too long

You thing we've gone too far ?
Then ask yourself what is worst

What you don't understand
What you don't understan is this

It all keeps fading away
But as soon as it's gone, it comes back
Our blood begins to boil
But our eyes, they are still cold

You thought we'd gonne too far
What you don't understand
What you don't understand is this...




4. DRIVEN BY HATRED

Deceitful kind, I wash my hands of you
Tried to let go, but you've failed me
Once again
All I have left - hate, regret...and spite
I'll watch you drown in your own filth

When your towers and temples
All slowly crumble...
And fall to the ground when the skies are falling
You'll see me smile...

Curse you all!

Deceitful kind, could never be like you
Oh, two-faced vermin, spitting lies
Through twisted masks
All that I see - betrayal and greed
I'll watch you drown, I'll see you fade

When the skies are falling
You'll see me smile...

Raise your glasses gentlemen
To this world of grinning prostitures




5. SWALLOW

Soarting into blackness
Into a screaming sky

Sever the ties of reality
Dissolve all self-control
Swallow and disappear
The liquid will drown all your fears

Deny tomorrow - delete yesterday
Patterns repeating - forever the same

Number every moment
Remembering how to fly
Number every moment
And not afraid to die

Sever of the the ties of reality
Dissolve all self-control
Until we fade from view
And disappear into the cold




6. THE LAST

[intrumental]




7. OPEN WOUND SALVATION

This urge, duct-tape and the barrel
Of a gun
Crowbar slaughter, a six-inch knife
To run you through

When I awake, from the silence
Of dreaming
Splinters of bloodstained glass
Burst inside my head

Faceless and scarred
Dig the hole and bleed you dry
Faceless god of bleeding scars
Dig the hole - open wound salvation

Cyanide savour, fractured soul
Nine millimeter redemption
Open wound salvation




8. ASHES

We'll erase what you've created
We'll take back the breath you stole

What you call civilization
Swiftly turned to dust
The ashes of your nations
Paint the sky

And as it all falls down...
From above - no answers

Useless civilization
Swiftly turned to dust
The ashes of your nations
Paint the sky

You have no purpose here
There is no law
We are what you most fear
We are the pure




9. NEEDLES

We'll put an end to this oppressions,
Tonight we'll tear it away
There ain't no place - til we rip off
The roof and resume disecration

And this outburst
Never did come across the eyes

Do not rewind
Take the needles away
Increase the dose
That gave us reflection

The lines are written in the mind
And all the bitterness
Came to crash it down
We're all trying to find the peace
To purge the emptiness
To fill this void

Don't look back, nothings left
From the world of our past
Ther ain't no peace,
Do not rewind - just let it...burn!

Do not rewind
Take the needles away
Increase the dose
That gave us reflection
