1. The Red Testament

I have considered all repercussions
Stains of this failure ascend predestined
Feeding deception in a bed of shame
Poison tourniquets caress a heart of rust
I know the conflict well
I know the sacrifice
Caught within the stillness
Of cold and hopeless murder
This is fucking murder
Self loathing murder
Actions speak louder than words
Systematic self destruction
Isolation kills every inch of the nerves
Red testament of despair
Black flowers and dead withered apologies
Say no more
Choke by the hand of distrust
Kill all the things you adore
This is murder




2. Reflections in the Sky

Gone before your time you left a void
Questions still remain
Remain unanswered
This is loss
Well raise our glasses and say a prayer for you
From all of us in loving remembrance
This is for you
Struggle to find the strength and carry on through life
So well say our goodbyes to sorrow
I look to the sky
And catch a glimpse of your haunting memory
From those youve left behind
This is for you my friend
These are the darkest moments
When love is buried deep
Underneath the layers of pain and soil
Lies the birth of a new beginning
I will never forget the absence of life in your face that day
I have tried to bend my mind around this never ending circle
I will hold on
I will bleed for faith
Struggle to find the strength and carry on through life
So well say our goodbyes to sorrow
I look to the sky
And catch a glimpse of your haunting memory
From those youve left behind
This is for you my friend
No matter how the time escapes us
You will be held within our hearts




3. Death March

Go meet your god your maker
And feel his cold dead hands of war
Countless centuries of blood spilt in his name
An eternity of waste
So put your hands together and grab your AK-47
Marching your way to the holy land
Unloading bullets in your fellow man
For you are pure and deserving
Of the death you bring on wings of faith
Will you succeed to pull the veil
Over the prying eyes of
God wont give you truth
We must find it for ourselves
Dont give in to the game hypocrisy
Of priests and broken miracles
So put your hands together now and grab your AK-47
Marching your way to the holy land
Unloading bullets in your fellow man
For you are pure and deserving
Of the death you bring on wings of faith
Will you succeed to pull the veil
Over the prying eyes?




4. American Terrorist

How can this system be Democracy
When a man can come to term unelected?
We dont want your corporate decisions
Thirsting for your hidden agendas
Rise against the American Terrorist
Unite our voices
If we stand as one, we can make a change
For our well being
How many people will have to die
To fill your pockets full of greed, bloody oil?
Fundamentalists youre no different
Together you and god bury your secrets
Rise against the American Terrorist
And bring us justice
Through this sea of lies we must seek the truth
Or be ruined
We will never follow you
Down this road that leads us to devastation
Rise against the American Terrorist
And raise your voices
United we stand divided we fall apart
This is our time
With one hand on the bible
The iron fist is clenched for the new empire
We wont disappear
Keep hope alive for revolution




5. Porcelain

A thousand pictures reflect in broken glass
Of all the mirrors shes loved
Caged in the darkness of her fallacies
She cut the lines to her heart
Change will never come for her
Lessons unlearned
There are no words that can break the silence
Of her denial
Shes bleeding for vanity
Reaching out from her calloused knees
All her dreams die slowly now
Porcelain dolls play in the scaffold
Of a false deceptive life
Choking on their self indulgence
They are the living deceased
There are no words to break her silence
Her beauty is fixed within a plastic shell
Of decomposing make-up
A pale expression of a life that dies so slowly
Disenchanted hope comes crashing down
Consumed by demons fire
If she could only have opened up her eyes
She would have saved herself
Change escapes her final grasp
A lost chance to live
Suffocation through her own defiance left her for dead
Shes bleeding for vanity
Reaching out from her calloused knees
Now awake she cries again
Hollowed by these fallacies of life




6. The Awakening

With Malediction
The predator is set to claim his victims
To prey upon the weak
This is how your story goes
An endless sequence of self centered acts cant fill the vacancy
The time will come when you will find out hard
Again and again you turn new leaves
Changing masks with every breath you take
Addicted to your crutch you tread and drown in your weakness
Speaking terms we've heard before
With hollow eyes you rape resolve
Indulge and take for your empty needs
So look away
Reverse the role of this twisted game you play
Collapse your world of disillusioned thought
Begin to see the damage done
Youll feel the pain youve caused
Youll feel a real breakdown




7. Burn the World

Weve been long forgotten
Scorch red burn the world for all its worth
With hunger to destroy everything we create
Weve seen this before
Consumption through fear for corporate gain
Leaders bathing in blood
Waging their wars
Struggle for power
Lies bleed into the truth
Its mass confusion
We must take back this dying earth
Or face our own demise
Weve come so far
Now we are spreading the disease
I will cry out for all mankind
We must realize
These days are forever fleeting
Scorch red burn the world for all its worth
With hunger to destroy everything
We must act now so raise your fists
We will never let you burn our world
We will rise




8. Roulette

Standing on the edge of annihilation
With visions of our end they turn to black
Infected world over population
This hole of hate we dig becomes our grave
Weve come to the end
This is regression
We die a little more each day that passes by
Extinction breathes down our necks
Hiding in the shadows
It patiently awaits our last mistakes
Hatred has its price and this time well pay in full
The day will come when we reap what weve sown
Weve come to the end
This is regression
We die a little more each day that passes by
We are the fallen ones
Progression has died
Engaging the last dreams of man
Awake to red
This is the price we pay
The cries of a nation
Cries of the earth
The cries of a nation go unheard
We fail once more
Darkness sets in to our souls
Just as killing feeds
Our undying need for destruction




9. Beyond the Fall

Collision course with my past
And I thought that those days were gone at last
As it seems Im in conflict with myself
And the thought of losing you is consuming
But I feel you getting through to me
I know that this is my final test
Beyond the wall Ive built youve reached me
We have broken apart this vicious cycle
Im at home in a homeless world
Together, one
But it comes back in my mind
Bleeding from inside these wounds
Wont heal my broken heart
I wont be defeated by my paranoid manifestations
I will find a way to receive this love
And flourish on
To the end of me




10. Scorn

Through these eyes of grey you see me suffer
Silently, pulling me through
Change denied by fate
I am lost, disarray
Beside myself with pain and confusion
Fragile hands losing hold
I will fall from grace today
With chaos ruling
Im trapped inside myself I harbor silent screams
I struggle to breathe every day
Dying from inside of me
Drowning from under my skin
I am fading desperate measure Im taking in vain
I will fall
Is it possible to save me?
Can I see through this disease as it eats me alive?
These moments of clarity escape me too often
I have become this broken man
And now its time to pick up the pieces
Reinvent myself
Step in the new
Forever embrace change
Ill break out of this shell
I feel it boiling
Im digging from out of this hell
Burning the fires of will power is under my skin
Is it possible to save me?
Throughout the trials of life I will overcome
