Track Name: Deceit
If you say you have no regrets
Then you're a better person than I
Falling short with these new lows
Letting it SLIP AWAY
How can I live with this?
FAILURE LIES DECEIT
Regret is coursing through me
If only i could take back time
It doesn't get any easier
The knowledge that age brings
Is of no comfort now
I fucking failed you
I fucking failed us
You can't trust me and you NEVER WILL
Knowing this is the end
FAILURE LIES DECEIT
Knowing this is the end
And I have to live with myself.
Track Name: Consecration
Consecrate the earth
In a baptism of blood
You think you can illuminate the dark
With the ashes of angels?
Awakening the devil
From his slumber
Even oblivion
WILL NOT SAVE YOU
From the harbinger of darkness
In your dreams
IT'S TOO LATE TO RUN
From your accursed future
How can your god forsake you
If he was never there
A bystander spectating YOUR LIFE
Abandon heaven
To rape god's creation
Mankind, a mirror of his soul?
Led to such depravity
As to make him weep
Violated by his own creations
For eternity
Unable to stop them
For to do so would be
To admit his own IMPERFECTION
As your castrated god
Hides in his kingdom
He will hear the cries of his creations
Waste no prayers on your saviour
WASTE NO PRAYERS ON YOUR SAVIOUR
Track Name: Control
There is a struggle
Inside my head
A war that never ends
If I feed the wolf inside
It will eat me whole
Fighting to keep my mind clear
Walls keep crashing all around
Struggling to stay on top
Eating me alive
FROM THE INSIDE

Is this a war without end?
NEVER GIVING IN
Won't fall victim
To the demons INSIDE ME

I can't control myself
I feel it creeping out
Trying to focus
On what's INFRONT OF ME

Is this a war without end?
NEVER GIVING IN
Won't fall victim
To the demons INSIDE ME

Is this a war without end?
NEVER GIVING IN
Won't fall victim
To the demons INSIDE ME

I'm losing grasp of everything

There is a struggle
Inside my head
A war that never ends (it wants me dead)
If i feed the wolf inside
It will eat me whole
Fighting to keep my mind clear
Walls keep on crashing down

Reality is escaping
Life is unfolding
I'm losing grasp of everything
Fighting to hold on

Go ahead and bash my brains in
To end this suffering
I don't know how to cope
Tormenting myself again and again
Time after fucking time I'll never learn
I can't believe I'm doing this TO MYSELF
Conjured problems
PHANTOM DEMONS
But I will overcome it all
Track Name: Dissolution
Separation, growing apart
Life is moving on without me
I am here, on my own
No man is an island
Time passes me by
Everyone moves on
Distance is between us
Fear of being forgotten is crushing me
Forget my face
Forget my name
I'm never there
This is the bed that i've made
And I will lie in it

The grass is always greener
WHY CAN'T I SEE?
The problems that may not be
Choices have been made
NO GOING BACK
This is the life that I lead
I refuse to change

AN ABSENT BROTHER
AN ABSENT FRIEND
Never there in your time of need
Never there at all
Fear of being forgotten is CRUSHING ME
Fear of being forgotten is CRUSHING ME
This is the bed that i've made
And I will lie in it
This is the bed that i've made
And I will lie in it

But no man IS AN ISLAND
No man IS TRULY ALONE
I know you're THERE FOR ME
You know i'm THERE FOR YOU
