1. Remission

No one can choose who wins or lose
This game that they call life
Manic depressive chaos, sharp as knives
One on one or two by two
Intentions to rip and maim
Fate is pre-planned
Putting God to shame

Remission
Remission

Current events anger prevents
Yes the world goes on
All of your future plans have all gone
Never remorse on your past course
For fucked things you have done
Donít ever retreat
Cuz thereís no place left to run

Remission
Remission
Remission
Remission

Raise your fist up to the sky
Satan laughing while you die
Demons grap your balls and make you scream

Never before, choose your right door
Youíll come out ahead
Donít play all your cards, youíre sure to wind up dead
Some people pray and some wish away
To end all this grief
You try to touch the ground
But thereís no relief

Remission
Remission
Remission
Remission




2. Another Form of Greed

Just got ripped off
For something that you worked for
Get some revenge
Gonna make somebody bleed
Thay faked your mind
You think theyíre your friends or
No oneís there in your time of need

Give up your life
And theyíve taken your soul
Highway to hell
And youíre paying the toll
Vengeance is sweet
So says your creed
Itís all just a form of greed

Youíve had enough
Been used for many reasons
Took it all
Sick and painful abuse
Made some mistakes
In loans, some cash, some treason
Now you realize
Youíve been taken on the blues

Give up your life
And theyíve taken your soul
Highway to hell
And youíre paying the toll
Vengeance is sweet
So says your creed
Itís all just a form of greed

No time to rest
Youíve got some heavy plans laid
Youíre fading fast
Itís getting too late
Poisoned veins
Or a bullet to the head
Your last request
You know youíll soon be dead

Give up your life
And theyíve taken your soul
Highway to hell
And youíre paying the toll
Vengeance is sweet
So says your creed
Itís all just a form of greed
Give up your life
And theyíve taken your soul
Highway to hell
And youíre paying the toll
Vengeance is sweet
So says your creed
Itís all just a form of greed




3. Scattered Wits

A row a scars that cut me
Way too deep
Iím numb to life anymore
So just let me be
Canít seem to scratch and pick
On life as earth as known
Canít come back
Itís too late now

Seems to feeel like candles in the wind
Theyíre going still strong
No one will win

Itís way too late to feel bad
For yourself
The damage has been done and youíre
Going down
Canít seem to scratch and pick
On life as earth as known
Canít come back
Itís too late now

So many times to fall out
So many times
This world has left us out
Out in the cold
Cold sun is finally going down
Your life is worthless now
And youíre going drown
Your hate and spite that drives you insane
Put the gun to your head and youíve lost all that pain

Took the fire
Burning you higher
You threw it away
You could feel it
Taking you down
Now your lifeís blown away

So many times to fall out
So many times
This world has left us out
Out in the cold
Cold sun is finally going down
Your life is worthless now
And youíre gooing drown
Your hate and spite that drives you insane
Put the gun to your head and youíve lost all that pain
Threw it away
Dropped the fire
Taking you higher
Threw it away
Threw it away
Threw it away




4. Desperate

Nightmare coming true
Reality so vivid, can you face the truth
Logic, donít you realize
Weíre blinded as the propaganda rules our lives

Torn and frayed
Whatís left of this life weíve made
A tiny glimpse
Of a world that we havenít seen since

Money controls us all
Iíve had it up to here with your path of sorrow
First fuck and take no names
One mans loss is another mans gain

Desperate
Desperate
Desperate
Desperate

Torn and frayed
Whatís left of this life weíve made
A tiny glimpse
Of a world that we havenít seen since

Iíve seen the future, the outlookís grim
Child of tomorrow is cursed to live
Endangered species, theyíll drop like flies
Whoís going to answer their desperate cries to live

How could we let it slip away
At such a cost, an utter waste
What must it take for all to see
Death for mankind because of his greed

Iíve seen the future, the outlookís grim
Child of tomorrow is cursed to live
Endangered species, theyíll drop like flies
Whoís going to answer their desperate cries to live




5. Leader of Fools

Walking alone
In his mind where he storms
Rules have been laid there
He fails to conform
Tell him the lie
Teach him to die
Send him to war
While heís questioning why

Watch the canvas
Grow crimson each day
Dear God, just stop it
Theyíll take you away
Do what youíre told
Donít try and be bold
Leader of fools now
Iím joining your fold

See them laugh
While we bleed
In their eyes
Weíre decieved
What we are to the gods
All our lives just facade

So now itís finally
Come down to just this
Saying goodbye
With a sweet Judas kiss
The actorís last day
In an ignorant play
All that is done
Now thereís nothing to say

See them laugh
While we bleed
In their eyes
Weíre decieved
What we are to the gods
When our lives have all gone




6. World Won't Miss You

I see a nine your old
Selling crack in this hole
A violent world, no self respect
No moral values left
Livelihood now is theft
Watch it crush you
Why donít we call it suicide

Keep all that shit away from me
Canít you see Iím no fool
Tempt your fate, fuck with me
The world wonít miss you

Struggle to meet supply
People demand their high
Sedating masses, no questions asked
Our sons and daughters raised
Into this blinding maze
Resisting pressure from their peers

Face to face, donít turn away
I need to know what motivates
Genocide, the poison crutch
That consumes your life with lust

Keep all that shit away from me
Canít you see Iím no fool
Tempt your fate, fuck with me
The world wonít miss you

Hey man, how can you face each new day
What gives you the right
To take anotherís life
And expect yours to be saved

Face to face, donít turn away
I need to know what motivates
Genocide, the poison crutch
That consumes your life with lust

Keep all that shit away from me
Canít you see Iím no fool
Tempt your fate, fuck with me
The world wonít miss you
Keep all that shit away from me
Canít you see Iím no fool
Tempt your fate, fuck with me
The world wonít miss you




7. Rude Awakening

No, I canít believe my eyes
The memories are too clear
Your face shows no scars
Your hollowness so real

Please Ė tell me itís a dream

Frozen, moments lost
Remebrance of when
Our differences stood in the way
Beyond the shake of hands
Now the bombshell hits
I see it more and more
You shall be greatly missed

Please tell me itís a dream
This rude awakening
Through a different light we see
With a rude awakening

We take so much for granted
Till it hits us close to home
Once the seeds are planted
We sit and watch them grow

Maybe with luck it will go away
Hide the truth and force decay
Awaken

Maybe with luck it will go away

Now I see my grave mistake
With no chance to repent
My pride was so much greater than
My will to make amends
Hatred blinds our judgement
As our bridges burn away
Till whereís nothing left to save

Please tell me itís a dream
This rude awakening
Through a different light we see
With a rude awakening
Please tell me itís a dream
This rude awakening
Through a different light we see
With a rude awakening




8. Gunpoint

Revolution of youth
Rebellious they stand
Thriving on disobedience
No new attitude
No new means or way
To satisfy, hunger they crave

Use youth as a weapon
That you canít control
Itís a world for the young
Out with the old

Find yourself powerless
In their hands
Authority stands no chance
With a gun to its head
Gun to itís head

In battle they clash
A war never won
For these gaping generations
Discipline, it clouds all their little dreams
Your supportís all they really need

Use youth as a weapon
That you canít control
Itís a world for the young
Out with the old

Find yourself powerless
In their hands
Authority stands no chance
With a gun to its head
Gun to itís head

How does it feel
Staring down the barrel
Welcome to madness
Hope Iíve lead you there

Revolution of youth
Rebellious they stand
Thriving on disobedience
No new attitude
No new means or way
To satisfy, hunger they crave

Use youth as a weapon
That you canít control
Itís a world for the you
Out with the old

Gunpoint
Gunpoint
Gunpoint
Gunpoint
Taken at gunpoint




9. Killing Time

Betrayed, youíve lost your face
Disappear without any trace
Shortened lifespan
Cutthroat, youíve lost your usefulness
More of a burden alive
Loose ends are no sacrifice

Noexistant, silence breeds
Memory lost, nothing seen
Patiently, with no remorse
They let the blood run its course
A bullet lodged in your brain
Ice running through their veins

Meet an early grave
No secret safe
You choose your fate
Killing time
Bonded by blood, red communion
Your creation
Killing time

Your life is at their dispense
Fine line, canít repay your debt, no way
Hunted, fair game, easy prey
Torment, leaves you no escape

Sitting duck, no time to wait
Guinea pig, used as bait
Target, one blast
No pain, thereís death on impact
Silenced threat, put at bay
Secretís lost, DOA

Meet an early grave
No secret safe
You choose your fate
Killing time
Bonded by blood, red communion
Your creation
Killing time




10. Hand of Doom (CD-Bonus)

What you gonna do
Time's caught up with you
Now you wait your turn
You know there's no return

Change your empty rules
You join the other fools
Turn to something new
Now it's killing you

First it was the bomb, Vietnam napalm
Disillusioning, you push the needle in
From life you escape, reality's black drape
Colours in your mind satisfy your time

Oh you, you know you must be blind
To do something like this
To take the sweet that you don't know
You're giving Death a kiss
Poor little fool now

Your mind is full of pleasure
Your body's looking ill
To you it's shallow leisure
So drop the acid pill
Don't stop to think now

You're having a good time baby
But that won't last
Your mind's all full of things
You're living too fast
Go out and enjoy yourself
Don't bottle it in
You need someone to help you
Stick the needle in, yeah

Now you know the scene
Your skin starts turning green
Your eyes no longer seeing
Life's reality
Push the needle in
Face death's sickly grin
Holes are in your skin
Caused by deadly pin

Head starts spinning 'round
You fall down to the ground
Feel your body heave
Deathís hand starts to weave

It's too late to turn
You don't want to learn
Price of life is high
Now you're gonna die




11. 11th Hour

A ray of light
A new child is born
A bludgeoned life
Emotions ripped and torn
From deep within
He cannot lose or win
When he was born
This child from hell
Condemned to sin

Evil schemes to manipulate and rape
More violence in this world
Of blood and hate
Donít want to go
The fear inside to die

Eleventh hour
Conscience calling
Eleventh hour
Die is cast
Eleventh hour
Sky is falling
Thrive on power
But it wonít last

First time planned
Heís setting course
The killing thoughts
And no remorse
Heís getting slick
As time goes on
The death and bodies
Keep adding on and on

Evil schemes to manipulate and rape
More violence in this world
Of blood and hate
Donít want to go
The fear inside to die

Eleventh hour
Conscience calling
Elenth hour
The die is cast
Eleventh hour
Sky is falling
Thrive on power
But it wonít last

Eleventh hour
Conscience calling
Elenth hour
The die is cast
Eleventh hour
Sky is falling
Thrive on power
But it wonít last
Eleventh hour
Conscience calling
Elenth hour
The die is cast
Eleventh hour
Sky is falling
Thrive on power
But it wonít last
