Broken Smile 06:34
Now they are breeding the heat of the enemy Come under the wing of my greed Keeping it moving, moving up up A way that I have made the grade Sickening, everybody but a fool I see the sin of a new day Cold, complex, in affect, in a way That only we can deliver the pain Feed the freak of a new day liberty On the path of misery Seeing the folding, the molding, controlling, we are now monopoly Sinners play the game of assembly Bring all the fun to uncover iniquity Over, the the freedom is dead Discover the key to uncover Call this bliss for what it is, stroke the need of this belief For a while, controlling my cold desire to vindicate Call this what you will, the season is now complete Thoughts & disbelief have surely changed my fate Just as sorrow paves the way to heal me Commanding over this foolish broken smile All that you wanted to tell me is that you are mine Blind you serve up complicity tonight Whoever made you, whoever saved you, whoever gave you this sentence of overindulgence Want it so much Empty, sell me, hollow, trivial Eating the reaping, the reasoning of my shame Once again you reflect upon a new day Sinking deep in the pit of the abyss Never gonna be the one to follow the leader I am the forsaken egotist Sever the ties that combine me to a new way Stuck in the past so uneven Forge the gates of resistance Pigheaded narrow minded follow the vain Solder of fortune the name upon the hero All they are is a mystery Searching the home land, free man democracy You will betray for me Smell of a new denomination ritual Stuck in the grey, either way you are the loser Conform to this affiliation Taking me to a new day impiety
You know the way to hate me You know the way to love me You know the way to thrill me You know the way to kill me (in your mind) Now I can see how it looks when I’m silent, wander through these thoughts inside Numbing the thoughts of confusion, a jaded illusion Over the years it would seem I've slowly become so attached to this Why does it seem so completely, devoid of clarity Misunderstood Searching for a meaning & reason to see where I’ve been I have been misunderstood Trying to wake from the past & a dream that I can't seem to wake Changes have taken my life to a crossroads, a place I’ve come to need Standing at the corner waiting, my life contemplated Over the constant belief that my life can never leave this place Wake this path another reason, this forsaken one It’s written on the walls, so clear to see it all Now begins the fall, to where I was alone (so divine..)
Calamity 03:40
Just as the night comes, you feel the sickness, as it begins The hunger rising, no way to calm this, you know the rest Is it the same thing, when you begin to lose it again Soon taking over, indulge the animal, that has released Overtaking me as it begins to fray away This beast has come to feed, now the victim is here And now the end comes, casting the plague down, you justify this Complete the feeding, absolve the needing, resolve in this As it begins to take over, who has come will only suffer This is the time when you peel away the skin
Insomnia 04:52
Where does the self destruction come from, reasons unknown to me As I hide from the truth clarity seems to slip away So this comes to pass, to this place at last Maybe one day they will leave me Isolation imprisoned in my mind, into a light What is this my body has entombed tonight Sleep can't seem to find me, insomnia complete Eyes are staring right into the black Waiting for the rest to come, time a slow & cold embrace Eyes are staring right into the black, they’re staring right into the black The seed of life escapes my grasp, while holding on to this Hope of cleansing my past in the future abyss Season will pass until the new day, when I retreat Wearing the scar, a mark forever stained upon this face Come feel the pain - insomnia Come feel the pain, as you become an illusion Unattached from lucid sight begins to slowly take me Divided thoughts wander off, please just disconnect me
Fear the fear of needing, keep this close to me Calling out for saving, can not stop the bleeding Here on out I feel like I'll be the one, tasting the air Come rest your head upon this, I start to realize I've got to compose, soon comes the cold Come take me into the void Conform to ideals like never before, calming this air Forming thoughts of chaos, knives growing under my skin Impaling my soul, stripping the old Ice now the blood of a man Come take the time realize, all that are is a lie Freedom is not compromised, soon to be one with the night Continue to break as the pressure awakens Come test your will & decide if you make it Flourishing constantly, no more complains Take me inside this final restraint You find this so familiar, it all comes back It feels just like my vision, falling down Breathing through my body, breathing through my eyes The numbing of confusion, seemingly A grey jaded illusion, seldom clarity My way; is this your way? Keep your hideaway In time you will betray me, if you only knew…
In the morning I have awoke to the strangest feeling Everything seems so unclear as my eyes see the waves In the mind things seem so surreal, like a dream that never fades Just a bleak consciousness that completes this disarray All confide into a bleak disguise - effervescence drifting away I am lost in this waking fight - just to see without a reason Lies of consciousness so at bay - slowly take me Will the clouded demon leave me be - give me peace Trying hard to stay above the waves that try to pull me deep Fighting for the strength to understand how the mind can stray at glance Cryptic holes inside the thoughts that wind in this troubled mind As it fades the clarity begins to cleanse this soul All my thoughts consumed by the shake, seasons never seem to change Build my body up from the coals, taking me inside Now I've finally gone to the edge where I've seen the black below me Continuing on the same way, I feel my body aching Skin so tight, freeze my eyes Show me a sign to end this night
Descend sick parasite Crawl into muscle, eat yourself to death Jaws detach, swallowing whole Every inch of what remains Bleak prophecies ring the dinner bell Tyrants feast on diseased meat Cowards look on with wild eyes Unable as a witness to process why Thine eyes bleed, thine wounds fester Thine anguish runs amuck  Black spirit, foul stench decay Rising like a fog Swarming like flies On bloody bones and mangled pieces  Hell on earth, hell on fire Burning through cities and kingdoms Now only wastelands under black skies Only the horrors of mankind Bury your brothers, burn the witch Black eyed angels sing a snarling pitch Suffering cries echo a dirge With every note stabbing away Rotting in their graves With every note stabbing away Swarming like flies On bloody bones and mangled pieces  Hell on earth, hell on fire Burning through cities and kingdoms Now only wastelands under black skies Only the horrors of mankind Bury your brothers, burn the witch Black eyed angels sing a snarling pitch Reach for healing the ending is what you will learn Look as the future is boiling alive as you burn Give to the reason that only the weak should be gone Forget all what has come before you as you crawl Forget what you will give, unto the new breed I am the new disease Taste me & feel the numb, what you’ve become I am the new decree
For many I was prey, to what I wanted to be The sinner’s scent for me Consider what I like, not that it shouldn’t be mine This finally ends tonight Through all the barren time, a pinnacle sign Conform to routine ends All that had come to pass, my choice at last And now we detach Through the darkness of future past The magician longs to see One chants out between two worlds Fire walk with me Nine years of confusion, can’t be undone The broken memories A cycle of dysfunction, always the same The seed that never breeds As time began to bleed, the demon no one sees The catalyst to me Is this my final break, will I return again To what has taken more, than I could ever know This is my final vow, I will be yours from now No more the one who sees, through blinded eyes And now the time has begun, for us to be as one The tie is deeper than blood, a single consciousness Content & now we combine, to seed birth of life Soon this will be complete, my own divided life Forget what this.. convince your mind is… Silence, violence, the past haunts my kind Bitter way in the feeling, of this windigo Feeding off this weakness, comes to bring forth the end The sighting in my dream, the giant sees What will become of me? So close to death that day the old man came Never the same again My life begins to fray, as things decay The log of the lady says Seeing into the night, the bright light blinds The circle of her remains I’ll catch you with my death bag You may think I’ve gone insane But I promise I will kill again
Calculated all together, thoughts begin to manifest in this soothing calm Weaving thoughts on patterns, going over the fever pitched to not ignore, you’ll call for me Sinner waiting for the doctrine, calculated intervention is so unclean On my way to a season comes to pollinate me, hate me Growing all of the anger feel it deepening within All the ways I've tried to fit into this skin Now it comes down to this On this way I claim to be what I say This carnal escape is glass on skin Solid eyes that look in the soul of a man, suicide Many times I've looked for a reason to die Colour this optimist, finally shaken to resist So it seems this is reason to change Never see the energy in front of me Come into the feeling gonna be the end Some way, in vain of a name, I am the enemy Coincide a feeling to illuminate, concentrate Fortify the evil eye that watches And waits for the sign to be the darkness What you will need - all you will feed
The army of the 12 monkeys They come to feed, the come to breed, they come to lead the way Another kingdom to fall Develop under the name, that you will never believe That number saves the day The Cassandra Complex The agony of foreknowledge with impotence They spread the virus that mutates That’s why we have to get to Philadelphia Sever me tonight, folding one more time Reaching over all that is in front of me Army of the 12 will rise… Feel mine so deep inside Is it the time, just one more night until we find it Hunger that paves this way Animality has come feed, the final awakening Contemplation of this weary opening inside Illustrating all my wishes in this place Now that you have taken down my inner sanctum All the ways you control the game Anything you want of me Your divine intrusion deep inside the need Your seduction will release me, elevating
Forward connecting into another feeling Searching home land, find where you stand Now I'm on the way to a new intoxication Feather in the cap, I am raging in the soul of a man Seeing all the hollowness, screams of pain in the cold Giving me one more disparity to hold Feel this hole inside Complete with a goal to beat my rage Come to believe that I’ve made you Forming the taste of my saviour Sins of time, feed your kind So unclean, now I will take you to the dark Taking another step back until you find this Remember when you almost became the hero Contesting this hesitation as it grows Filling up my cup alone Shallow forced existence, paving the way into another day Sever the consciousness to be oblivious Shattered memories of a time long, long ago Now accepting that you have now become the one Closing in, breathe this sin Wake this beast, now I will take you to the dark Living this infinite cold existence Surrounded by the only thing that sticks Social reject is a face I wear with this Soldier to my own escape Seeking what you never; never wanted to be part of this Feeling the ending near, seeking my dignity Trying to recall, when I automatically became the numb All this dissipating, as you have now become undone Feeling of a heart beat as it’s trying to tell you One more shot just might be what you die for Giving me a reason to fool you Living the same old routine pollutes you
Vanity has always been a little contagious Soon the envy turns you into me (you into me) Watching the story of the glory With the wide eyes (with the white eyes) Drinking the wine & then eat it for the joy ride One more shot Gluttony has now begun to fill up the soul Never enough (never enough) Drinking the throes of my agony Forever you will be All that you dream till these eyes… Suddenly things start to become the same Focusing tunnel vision sharpening (sharpening me) Sickening beginning, forming the pain Third act promises what I crave Solar the gaze over the waking remains Charred are the memories (the broken memories) Poisoning, deepening into the brain Causing the eclipse of the opening Find me in the corner screaming silently Hold me, take away this feeling stained on me
