1. Nothing

Why did you make your heart a stone
A pretty graveyard for the unloved
A king-sized deathbed for the dying young
Now thereís a heart-slaughter going on

Should I force a smile or just play dead?
Should I self-destruct or just move ahead?

I am so alone
Desperation drives me nuts
I can feel the pain
Itís the beginning of the end
This must be the time
Where I put myself to rest

No more breath for the unwanted
No more life for the unnoticed
No more time to fix the broken
No more words for the unheard

Iím tired of this bleeding
Tired of being this broken man
Like the night murders the day
So will love assassinate me

I am so alone
Desperation drives me nuts
I can feel the pain
Itís the beginning of the end
This must be the time
Where I put myself to rest

Your nothing is my everything
Now Iím nothing
Can you see me?
Can you love me?
Now Iím nothing
Can you feel me?
Can you touch me?

I am bleeding. Can you feel it?




2. When Suicide Lies Dead

I have bled my way throughout life
Love could never stop this tragedy
I promised you rebellion Ďtil the end
But Iíve seen my strength fade away
I have done the waiting, nothing came
Tired of all the fighting, tired of pain
Timeís come to collect, I am done
Time has passed me by, I will break

When the suicide lies stone-dead inside
Please understand I wonít be back

This breath will be my second to last
Tonight Iíll close my eyes
I wonít wake up at dawn

God has sent a bullet into my head
IĎve suffered enough - understand
Sorry for the sorrow I have caused
Please try to forget me when Iím dead

When the suicide lies stone-dead inside
Please understand I wonít be back

I have died Ďcause I was destined to fall
No last kiss goodbye
Death taught me how to smile
This is my goodbye
Please let me go
Please set me free
This is my farewell to you

God has sent a bullet into my head
IĎve suffered enough - understand
Sorry for the sorrow I have caused
Please try to forget me when Iím dead

This breath has been my very last
Tonight Iíve closed my eyes
Tonight I have diedÖ




3. Alea Iacta Est

Consider yourself some kind of god
One thatís about to fall
Yeah, the die is cast
And to all those who cannot speak...
Weíll raise our voice until it breaks
A verbal riot, a sonic wave
This is the sound of revolution
One man, one voice
One voice, one vote
To overthrow the status quo

A distorted perception, a blinding deception
Your lies are the lock on our mind
Freedom is shackled when put in perspective
But this time you wonít get away
Truth hushed up in darkness and silenced to death
But in the end you will reap what you sow
No more oppression, the blinders are off
And the crippled have come to arise

And to all those who cannot speak...
Weíll raise our voice until it breaks
A verbal riot, a sonic wave
This is the sound of revolution
One man, one voice
One voice, one vote
To overthrow the status quo

A distorted perception, a blinding deception
Your lies are the lock on our mind
Freedom is shackled when put in perspective
But this time you wonít get away
Truth hushed up in darkness and silenced to death
But in the end you will reap what you sow
No more oppression, the blinders are off
And the crippled have come to arise

Weíll tear you down
The time is now
We are the voice inside your head
We are the thorn carving your flesh
We are the knife slicing your wrist
We are the ones bringing you down

Raise your hand
Make a wave
Raise your voice
Make a sound




4. Memoirs of a Murderer

I shot the prom queen
I shot her dead
A sick prologue
of the drama I provoked
My execution
a gentle torture
to ease your pain
as I cross the river

Make me bleed
Make it hard
Torture me
Justify the unjustified
Execute
Bring it on
Silence me
Justify what canít be justified

Memoirs of a murderer
What was I thinking?
What are you thinking?
Murder born of murder
What was I thinking?
What are you thinking?

This is it
Turn it on
I must die
Tie me up to the electric chair
This is it
Turn it on
Watch me die
Put some fire in my eyes

What the hell do you think of when you turn on that switch
When you watch the empty chair?
I am walking my last mile back to hell where I belong
with her blood still on my hands
I will never bleed enough to satisfy your lust
Your vengeful heart still hurts
You can not kill me because the memory remains
Because the silence leaves a scar.
Look at you now
Can you still sleep at night?




5. Under Your Dead Hand

This is who I will be
Born to build my own
Witness your world end
You canít convert me

I breathe, you suffocate me
Youíll die in me
Die in me

Watch me do it
Cling to the fucking cross
Tradition fails
Progression is what we need

I will not feed my mouth from your racist hand
Your archaic theories will never reach my ears
so you better cut your tongue

I breathe, you suffocate me
Youíll die in me
Die in me

Watch me do it
Cling to the fucking cross
Tradition fails
Progression is what we need
You donít mean
a goddamn fucking thing to me now.

Under your dead hand we will rise




6. Marching into Hell

Weíre marching into misery
A warpath paved with filthy lies
This is a morbid destiny
One that perverts morality
The only value that is left
captured inside a soldierís gun
War is a subtle word for
an ordinary crime

Hell - give them hell
Kill - kill them all
Die - die with pride
Hate - hate them all

What are we fighting for?
What are we dying for?
All I really killed was a piece of myself
What are we fighting for?
What are we dying for?
I wonít let them kill all the good in me

Hell - bound in hell
Kill - the innocence
Die - die in vain
Hate - blinds us all

And you salute the flag
As I watch it burn

What are we fighting for?
What are we dying for?
All I really killed was a piece of myself
What are we fighting for?
What are we dying for?
I wonít let them kill all the good in me

Delusion/Illusion
Sacrifice after sacrifice after sacrifice
Sacrifice yourself for a changeÖ




7. We Are the Plague




8. Miss 21% Perfect

Iíd like to hit you with the back of my hand
so you would understand.
Youíre not my role model, just a living lie
among the living dead.

Cut yourself. Break yourself. Hate yourself.
Gorgeous drop dead.

Addicted to a mirrorís lie.
Real beauty hides deep down inside.
A syringe fixed to score a thinner you.

Cut yourself. Break yourself. Hate yourself.
Miss 21% perfect.

Addicted to a mirrorís lie.
Real beauty hides deep down inside.
A syringe fixed to score a thinner you.

Youíre so pretty when youíre dying.
Youíre so pretty when youíre dead.
So take your shot and pay the price
cause soon youíre dead and gone.

Cut yourself. Break yourself. Hate yourself.

Tomorrow youíll be alone.
Tomorrow youíll be gone.
Tomorrow youíll be dead.
Not my role model
Not my role model
Just a living lie.




9. The Common Lie

We swallow everything
We swallow lies
We swallow everything
We swallow filth

I watch the watchdog die in your hands
as he eats the common lie
I watch the watchdog die in your hands
as he feeds the common lie

The smart bomb only smart enough to deceive...
The stream of information tied to your hands
And your black propaganda controls the land
The public opinion butt-fucked, the story framed
Selling the war to the nation, your fancy game

What to believe?
We cannot see
What to believe?
We are not free

One more dead
One more lie
One more story
Weíll never know

I watch the watchdog die in your hands
as he eats the common lie
I watch the watchdog die in your hands
as he feeds the common lie

A nation born to be free under the spell of fear
Protest is just a social disease, nothing is what it may seem
Die with the lie
The flag on the coffin, the nation the killer, the media put on a leash
All for the man in the white house who thinks he can own the whole world
Die with the lie

Still we swallow everything
Still we swallow lies
Still we swallow everything
Still we swallow your filth
What to believe?
We cannot see
What to believe?
We are not free




10. Blanket of Black

Inhaled 1000 lies
Burn me, as I watch you die
Chose not to gorge their flesh
Only to ignite their misery

Force open your eyes
As the razor graces your throat
Hypocrisy
Through the cracks comes the smoke

Cover me
In a blanket of black
Cover me
With your death

Locked behind the cage
Eyes glazed with sorrow
Forced inhaled addiction
Without thoughts of tomorrow
Pain, I must breathe
As I watch you sink
Into the hands of justice

Smolder behind the black clouds
Inhale one last time

Force open your eyes
As the razor graces your throat
Hypocrisy
Through the cracks comes the smoke

Cover me
In a blanket of black
Cover me
With your death

Kiss the hand of god
As I watch you sink
Into the abyss
Burning in the flames of justice




11. Oath for an Oath

Thrown into this nightmare
Born, all by myself
Thrown inside this prison
Forced to be this self
We have come alone here
And alone we die
But in the time between
We have to unite
Love is overrated
But I exist through you
Rusted into my heart
Are the promises we made

My heart still beats for you no matter what
We stand as one, also in times of sorrow
Brothers of blood always confide each other
Strength by strength until death consumes us

Wherever you are
Wherever you go
You will always get the best of me

My heart still beats for you no matter what
We stand as one, also in times of sorrow
Brothers of blood always confide each other
Strength by strength until death consumes us

Thrown into this nightmare
Born, all by myself
Thrown inside this prison
Forced to be this self
We have come alone here
And alone we die
But in the time between
We have to unite
Oath for an oath

Wherever you are
Wherever you go
You will always get the best of me

I stand up for you
You stand up for me
And I would rather die than ever turn my fucking back on you
Cause you are life to me as I am life to you
Wherever you are
Wherever you go
You will always get the best of me
