1. In The Name

Begging at the gates of Eden
locked out of paradise
punished for the pleasures of my life
to give and take is a life of a sinful man
justification of tormented souls.
Bow your head and turn from the darkness
bow your head and breed your guilt
buying your way into the kingdom
you search for immortality
pretentious use of the others
you feed off the weak and lame
you are the sheep of the flock
hiding your wolves teeth

See that being in the mirror
stare into a fool's eyes
slaves of servitude
once we chase the rainbow

Chase the words of the mortal prophet
and fall into despair
lead off a cliff by the madness
you search for serenity
walking through life with blinders
is your claim to faith
dreaming that fox-hole prayers
can pull you from the gates of hell

All in the name
All in the name

Your sun sleeps in the darkness
and ask the questions why
Gray moon rises with your doubts
as you pray to the night
your hand clutching for dollars
all in the name of God
calling out your power the pulpit
you judge, then sell

Burning cross falls
eyes filled with greed
betrayed sorrow
your savior screams

At the edge of a decision
you look for guidance
your mind weakened by crutches
you fall into the darkness

2. Hopeless

Desperate ambition
draining prosperity
transparent apparition
trying to undo me
unraveling, undaughnting
violate the sanctity
strangling, drowning
breaking the unity
clinging to mediocrity
the only enemy is change

Collision course
bent on destruction
deadly force
follow instructions
targeting, zeroing
kill with technology
engaging and caging
victims of society
Radical intervention
big brothers eye
global connection
live electronic lives
surfing, searching
information supreme
connecting and learning
that we're all the same

3. Lost In Paradise

Bathing in crimson rain
Basking in the pain I create
To truely feel alive
To crave the world I despise
Breathe all the unpleasantness
I feed my need for distress
I truely feel alive
I reach for paradise

Building a wall around me
stored away like a guarded memory
A forgotten pawn am I
A slave to paradise

Try to find the anger I need
A faceless enemy I must defeat
To truely feel alive
In a state of unrest I thrive
The fortunes of war I caress
The business of governing death
I truely feel Alive

In battle I find release
I'm a puppet that lost it's strings
I will never die
I'm lost in paradise.

4. The Game

Standing frozen alone I fall onto the game board
push me through, pull my strings and kick me when I'm down
I try to run, I have no will, I am man no more
alone in the darkness, searching for the lies
You take from me my dreams
you take from me my life
all that I cannot be
is all that you've taken from me

Kneeling alone on a curb I raise my head to gasp
light reflects off the beads of broken glass
feeling limbs begin to give, I hit the ground
you're there in the darkness, destroying my life
You can't take my anger, you can't take my drive
you can't take my desire, you can't take my pride
I will find you in the darkness and make my final stand
I will take you by the throat and drive you in the ground

Beading sweat rolls off my brow beating on the ground
digging into the asphalt blood all around
spitting out the taste of dirt and laughing out loud
alone in the darkness stomping out the lies
I can see you standing there, eyes wrapped in fear
the dry air burns your throat, as you turn and wonder
if I'll be there
Running forward alone I jump from the game board
push you through, pull your strings and kick you when your down
reaching for a glimpse to grasp, I pass by
you're there in the darkness searching for the lies

5. Reflections

The last words I heard you say
were ringing in my ears
as they lowered you to the ground
there is no truth to be found
I can love no one
I can feel no god.

Feel the lines growing in my face
feel the darkness erase
all that I am
and all that I could be
has fallen at my feet before me
I curse the ones that took your soul
crumbling, I see my world
Look to the moon
questions unanswered
my life has become
chaos and torture
head placed in my hands
reflections unanswered
where has my faith gone
dancing into the fire.
Lay you to rest before me
clinging to this life I bleed
deliverance from what I've become
the swirling madness I left undone
I laugh in the face of the ancient ones
I pass on to the other world.
Fall into the blackness
I can see it standing there
eyes of fire through a shroud of darkness
my life engulfed in fear
running from the blackness
pushing towards nowhere
I can't believe in anything
without you standing here.
Searching through
the realms of my mind
I can find no truth
I can feel the answers fading
o'God, what will I do
the eyes of fire growing stronger
burning through my mask
mirrors reflect nothingness
the end has come to pass.

I can feel the darkness
all around me
And I can feel the nothingness
bring the end to come to pass.

6. Mortal Divinity

Born of flames and rotting womb
buried alive in a childhood tomb
awakened from a mortal conscience
rancid, wretched, screaming carcass
once a caring thoughtful soul
the truth a sobering blow
they attempt to scrape it from his lobe
only leaving the doorway open

Mortal divinity
eternal insanity
divine hypocracy
a human deity

Rabid dogs scratch and tear
rip the flesh and expose the fear
rape the innocense, expel the child
force away that naive smile
degradation, suffocation, cleasned by love
they show him he's no better than anyone
radical exteme machine, fueled by society
to prove that he's no god.

He know's the secret in his mind
he feels the power come to life
he'll blow the horn to summon the end
a divine mortal among men.

7. Judgement

I feel the rising of the storm
all life it will consume
I feel the touch of God's hand
embrace the burning moon
and the meek shall burn too.

Lie awake inside your tomb
the darkness will come for you
no place to run and hide
when it's time for you to die.

I watch the others fade
bleeding acid rain
I watch them all weep
blinded by the pain
leading them to uncertain boundaries.
I chase forbidden themes
encased in hopeless dreams
I take what isn't mine
the weak I victimize
and fools I leave behind.
I choose to dominate
and force them all to hate
I force my will on you
there's nothing you can do
we will all burn soon
I have seen within the storm
hollow to the core
I have stepped into the eye
where forever I reside
you won't be far behind
I see the rising of the sun
and time stands still
I felt the hand of God
and darkness will ensue
judgement is absolute
end chorus
Lie awake inside my tomb
darkness will come for me
no place for me to hide
when it's time for me to die

8. Lies

Spent the night alone
nowhere to sleep or stay
can't remember what was said
there was nothing left to say
Why must you lie when you have all you want
do you want to go on?
Can't always lie, you know the line's too long
you have to go on
My darkest fears are coming true
it's time to take the blame
subconciously I always needed
the trouble and the pain
you said funny how your on the team
but you never make a play
I said selfish is a lonely word
to me it's just your name
Why must you lie when you have all you want
do you want to go on?
can't always hide, you know the line's too long
you have to go on
Why do you hide when you have all you want
do you want to go on?
can't always lie, you know that life's too long
you'll have to move on

My sanity is wearing thin
my mind wanders away
feeling like a stranger
I don't think that I can stay
bottled up inside of me
is this thing I cannot shake
I know that I've lost control
of the things that I embrace
Make the change, take the chance thats given you
you might find there's nothing to fear at all
I only hope, that you can survive without me
then maybe we can go on our own way

9. Eyes Of Sorrow

Through the eyes of wonder I see
though I cannot flee the sin in my way
entombed in darkness for my gift
my mind in peril strains my sanity
if I could see evil with my hands
and feel pain with my eyes
I'd consume the knowledge that I crave
and break through the disguise

Through the eyes of sorrow I see
wade through the rays and the
flesh of the life giving spirits
have I been crucified
will God save me from this pain?
my rotting pupils gaze on death
they cannot fix on the life they breathe
taste the spoils of my disease

Through the eyes of sorrow I feel
sickness and death following me
through the eyes of wonder I fear
my conscience will never be clear

In the iniquities of pain
lie the darkness for me
I cannot see the error of my ways
I cannot see the suffering
absent are the eyes
that worship life
in their place resides
the emptiness

10. Resting Peace

I look to the night
and it is in her beauty that I am lost
lost in the questions that burn deep
in the eyes of the universe
what began it all? has there always been dust?
and is not what always that has been, God?
is God dust?

My answers lie beyond this existence
transcendence is a matter of time
and time with no matter
my fear of death, my quest for immortality
my hope for God, the dream of my resting place
is what holds me to this night
through the approaching chaos of the eighth day
I still wonder.

As I watch the encroaching blackness and lunar crimson
I wonder if God knows me as I know myself
as the flames consume the soil
I'm swallowed by the nothingness of purgatory.
