1. A New Darkness Upon Us (Intro)




2. Donít Need A Reason To Hate

I don't need a reason to hate you
The reasons you gave me are reason enough
Think that youv'e really got me sussed?
Are you sure just who you trust?
I don't know myself at all no more, they've always said that need's a must
I turned to see I'm not what I wanted to be
Fuck you, don't need you I don't need a reason to hate
I don't need anything you have to offer me
I don't value your opinion or company
If you want to make my life complete
Then just stop breathing in your sleep
Don't need reasons to hate
I don't need reason to hate
I want out of this, can't you see?
Hanging in by the skin of my teeth
The taste of you, it sickens me
I want out, I just want.... the setting sun, it burns me from the sky
It lights your face as I watch you die
That bridge you burnt has reappeared
Cross if you dare, but don't come back
Fuck you, don't need you
I don't need a reason to hate you
1001 deaths I wish upon you
And everyone, everything you love
Revenge is sweet and I know I should gloat
But negativity, sticks in my throat
Don't need reasons to hate
I don't need reasons to hate
Counting seconds as they pass by
Time enough for every fucking lie that you ever whispered in my ear
I won't forget this time, not again
I make a totem of your pain
Worship your enemies as gods




3. Behind The Light

Be at one with the heretic that resides inside us all
Make your peace with the warmonger when you heed his call
2003 years of kissing ass
Tell them how much longer will this penance last?
No more acts of pure blind faith
It is time to test your god
A short time to live
A long time to wait
Your faith is so fragile
Handle with prayer
Turn your judgement inward and see what lies there
Reason gives way to bloodlust
We watch our world tear itself apart
We make our own homes our gallows
Chooking ourselves, serving time
A short time to live
A long time to wait
So do you honestly think that you've seen the light?
A thousand churches haunted by jesus christ
A world where madness and grief is commonplace
How can I blame you for clinging to your misplaced faith?
Do you honestly think that you've seen the light?
A thousand churches possessed by jesus christ
A world where madness is spread through our grace
How can I blame you for clinging to your misplaced faith?
A short time to live
A long time to wait
Faith has fled this place
Hanging its head in shame
Your lies are a disgrace
You seek to lay the blame
In search of redemption we tear ourselves apart
The answers we seek are in our own hearts
Behind the light




4. Killer Of Society

In the absence of a merciful god
Who will save them from the sins of their fathers?
Can't you see they're killing our society?
Raping and murdering children in their infancy
Men who, when lust usurps trust
Take everything we hold dear and crush it to dust
No hint of malice in his eyes but behind closed doors the real darkness lies
Apparently a pillar of society who takes pleasures,
Oh so secretly he'd snuff out the light in their eyes
Right under our noses
In our homes
He hates this world of which he's apart and would paint it all the colour of dead
He cries for forgiveness but did he forgive them their cries?
Where compassion as tears filled their eyes?
A punishment to fit the crime
Killer of society
Why would anyone feel the need to slaughter the simplicity of childhood dreams?
Tearing at that blank canvas of virgin flesh splattered in shades of black and red
Can't you see the magnitude of what you've done?
Let the punishment fit the crime, you've nowhere to run yearning for the inner scent of the innocent
Then liberals blame us when we try to prevent these abominations from walking our streets
Feeding on our children like they're pieces of meat
We suffer the place of darkness cast upon youth
But now we are saying that enough is enough




5. Dead From The Neck Up

Dead from the neck up
I know you hate to face the truth but can't you see me I'm not like...
You can count the true friends you have on the fingers of no hands
You never looked before you leap
Never think before you speak
The things you think of as your strengths I depise for being weak
You made my acquaintance with broken glass
I know you hate to face the truth even when you're faced with the proof
Can't you see that you're just a fake?
How much of this can you take?
You're dead from the neck up
Look deep in every shadow
You know you'll see me there
Awoke the thug within me
No guilt, only despair
You're dead from the neck up
You rained blood on my parade
I live for retribution
My life incomplete
Buried alive, beneath your lies
Impotent rage stinging my eyes choking, fish out of water
On the last true word that you never said
I gaze at indifferent stars and hope you suffer wherever you are
You made my acquaintance with broken glass
I know you hate to face the truth
Even when you're faced with the proof
Can't you see that you're just a fake?
How much more of this can you take?
Your sin burns in my veins
I live and breathe your pain
I piss upon your worthless pride
You are everything I despise
You rained blood on my parade




6. The Cage

Trapped inside the cage
All that you'll see you'll soon forget
These bitter words of pain and rage yours to keep as you come of age
Every second passing in our lives
Seals the door a little tighter
Walls that keep us trapped inside are barriers within our own minds
Locked down hard for none to see
Prisoners of our own misery
Try to be yourself and see what you get
Don't try to question or step out of line
You might think something you'll live to regret
Unthinkable thoughts, they'll haunt you
You'll never forget
Trapped inside the cage
All that you see you soon forget
And so we let the cycle flow
Thinking there's nothing to know
Wandering, wakeful time ticks fast
See your future become your past
Strung out on fear of what becomes of a mind on fire with a severed tongue
Days spent questioning life's worth
Turned the gift of life back into a curse
So let crows peck at my heart
May they erase the memory of today
You'll never forget
All that you see, you'll soon forget
The cage
All that you see soon forget
And so we let the cycle flow
Thinking there's nothing more to know




7. Bear The Scars

Stabbed in the back by a memory
There's nothing left
I'm empty inside
I've lost my heart, my soul and all that's left is pride
I'd give my life to just turn back the clock
At the very least if I could make it stop
I am becoming death
How can I say what can't be said?
Yearn to be one with the fragrant dead
To bathe forever in the tears we shed
And if its my maker that I'm gonna meet then I will beg him to unmake me
Veil lifted from my eyes
I see myself for the first time
I still bear the scars of treachery
Buried deep within myself there hides the enemy
This coming of rage
A virus in me
I cling to my demons oh, so desperately
I am becoming death
How can I say what can't be said?
Yearn to be one with the fragrant dead
To bath forever in the tears we shed
And if it's my maker I'm gonna meet then I will beg him to unmake me
Bare the scars




8. Betrayal Has A Face

I've walked the four corners of this earth but peace is something I cannot find
I can run a million miles but never escape my own mind
Cursed to lie on this bed of nails
Every point celebrating my failures
Come back to haunt me
The oppertunites missed, the feelings I hurt
Resurrected to tear at flesh they come back to haunt me
And now betrayal has a face... as I lie here afraid to sleep listening to the floorboards creek
Beneath the sword of damocles
I've been betrayed
Times oozes like molasses
I drown in every sweet wave but oblivion eludes me
As the edges of reality start to blur I question who I am
Oblivion eludes me
The bitter mind of 4am reveals the man I fear I am
As minutes drag
Slowly to hours all hopes by doubts are devoured
I've been betrayed




9. Pain Is Weakness (Leaving The Body)

The day everything meant nothing and all the world's darkness poured into me
Bring on the hate in all its glory and let it do what it will with me
Nothing really lasts forever except the memory of betrayal, the ache of emotions severed, the lonely numbness of denial
So, welcome the pain
Thrive on it
The cruel chemistry
One man's heaven is another man's hell
Do not put your trust in anyone
Or watch it die like a flame
As love and blood soak the snow you wrestle with where to lay the blame
My life knocked a few words
Comfort from grief
Whispering to me of my mistakes
Pain is weakness leaving the body
We must take the bitter with the bitter
Even if we choke as we swallow
The most valuable lessons are always hardest
And as pain flees, new strength must follow




10. Unmarked Grave

Killing their children wont bring back our dead
Since when's retaliation been a means to and end?
Don't believe all you read, don't get caught up in the hate
The truth is never black and white
Replace like for like then question why
All those people had to die for all the death you're creating
I hope your point's well worth making
As we become what we oppose
There's no such thing as friendly fire when you are the ones under fire...
If only our powers of empathy matched the might of our military display
Sit on the fence untill it burns
Another hard lesson learned
War is terror for the innocent
But when the fuck will we relent?
As we become what we oppose
There's no such thing
There's no such thing as friendly fire when you are the ones under fire...




11. Ashes To Scatter

Chant the mantra of a dying world
Slashed wrists of my conscience leaving me free to makre more mistakes
As I fall from hell to hell I look up to see I've been conditioned to hate
From my ego I can see the world revolve round me
To the martyrs who suffer, suppressing the lust
Live through me a cheaper version of digust
Chant the mantra of a dying world
I am without purpose, a stained glass window without the sun
Like a shadow, loved and need by no one
Those who restrain desire do so
'cos theirs is weak enough to be restrained
Behind a body liberated lies a mind incarcerated, bound by chains
Choose not to like me but forced to respect me
Others entrust a myth with their faith
A faith in oneself can often be misplaced
All I have is ashes to scatter and little more




12. Mantra Of A Dying World (Outro)
