Track Name: The Fraudulent
I am no god
Liar in the glass
Hand of ill faith
I will not

bow down to your martyrs
Innocent to your own actions
I cannot protect you
When you kill yourself

Living amongst the gods in land for the king of kings
You are not worthy

Liar in the glass
Works for his life, now past

Liar, dead
Ruler, cut off his head

I am not a king
I am not a ruler
I will not be lost
I am not a liar

I am no god
Liar in the glass
Hand of ill faith
I can not
Track Name: Morning Star
I am not your worship
I demand no penance

Frightened people, I am here
Scatter everywhere in fear

Lucifer, divine
I stand amongst the corpses of those who died

I have found my god, Lucifer

I was blind
Now I see
I wanted to be free at last
But I have found a new being to follow

Now, 'til the end of me
I have sacrificed it all,
'til the end of days
I will give my life for you

Found a new religion
Followers follow me
Sell my soul
Deity
There's no turning back

Losing my selflessness
I am lost in darkness
Lucifer, come guide me
The light fades away

I am blind with pride
I see the light inside your blackened soul
Track Name: Proxy
I go through a proxy
You can never touch me

I am not alive at all, this is a contradiction
I am not alive at all, this is my life

[chorus]
Live through all those around me
I control all their strings
Like marionettes for my soul
I break, make them dance

I'm out, I'll find my way back in
I'm out, I'll disappear

I live my life alone, no one belongs to me

I'm not afraid
I'm not your slave
I'm not anyone else
I am a dream

[chorus]
Live through all those around me
I control all their strings
Like marionettes for my soul
I break, make them dance

I am in control, I won't run away
I am in control, I will not be drowned

I will cut my strings
Lost among the sheep

I go through a proxy
You can never touch me

I am not controlled
The puppet master is gone
He cut the chords away
This is my life

[chorus]
Live through all those around me
I control all their strings
Like marionettes for my soul
I break, make them dance
Track Name: The Darkness Within
Open your eyes and see the world around you

I am being held a slave
I am left alone, day after day

I am your captor
I am your ruler
I am the darkness within

I am being held against my will
Who are you? Please help, I'm drowning

I am not a coward
You are not my slave
I will be the victor
I will set you free

Dissonance in silence
Defiance in absence
I am the dark within

Dissonance in silence
Defiance in absence of guilt
Dissonance in silence in pain
Reliance in mercy and vain

Rob me of my dignity
Take from me my faith
Rape me and assault me now
Bring me to my fate
I will be the one
Watching you from way up high
You will be the first to die

Take her in the back and shove her face through the window, then throw her in a body bag.
I have raped and murdered them all, marks on their faces and scars on their backs.
I am taking beauty out of this world and into the next one, straight into hell.
Her long blonde hair and bloodshot eyes, her curves and tears and pleas for forgiveness.

My life is all a lie (Lie all you want)
I can be all I try (you will never escape)
To cheat death, it's not the end (cheat life, it's not the end)

The darkness inside of me is too much to burden
The light behind my mask is too dim to eat me whole

Silent in darkness, absent in the light
Presence in the light
I am blind to the light beneath the dark within my soul

Open your eyes and see the world around you
Close your filthy mouth and listen to my last breath

I am the dark within
Bring me to my knees
Take me from my faith
Take off my mask and see

I've become a monster
I've become a saint
I was born a martyr
I will die in restraint
Track Name: Iris
I see you, Iris, love. You are a goddess here
I will not stand by you until your grave in the end

Iris
Heaven's not for any weak of heart
For all those torn apart, I'm here
Iris, the goddess of love and hate

I hate you Iris, love. You are the devil inside me
I will not stand by you
You are nothing to me
I will get my revenge
Iris, you will pay

Iris
Hell is not for any weak of heart
For all those torn apart, I'm there
Iris, the goddess of everything I hate

I am darker than the sun is menacing
I will take over the world with my dear Iris by me

I am the sun, the moon, the earth
I am the one who gives rebirth
I am the one, the true, the lost
I am betrayed, became the cost

Iris, the goddess of everything
Iris, the goddess of everyone
Track Name: Into the Abyss
Living in cold (trusting no one)
Dark in the abyss (I live in fear)
Loving all people (covered in sun)
I'll die in bliss (my eyes are clear)

There's an experience worse than blindness
Certainty around you
There's no world but black

Take me away
From this place
There's more for me
In the dark

Into the abyss, blackness swallows you
Into the blackness, darkness consumes me

Come find me, in the gallows of hell, I'm dying to tell you my tale

I was lost in the dark inside of me
Blinded by my altruistic thoughts
Terrified, my whole world had disappeared
Clinging to light, running from the darkness

I'm found and now you are the pitiful
You cannot feel all of the beauty I see
Was lost but now I see you're pitiful
Your eyes are dull, glazed with unwearing caring

Open your eyes
Become the prize
Lessen your faith and die
Open your mind
Slave to the grind
Project your faith and fly away

Into the abyss, catch my fall
Fall into darkness, hear my call

My worst nightmare, blinded by light
Certainty around me, there's no world but black
Track Name: Moonshine
I am not a slave to my addiction
I have all my mind and heart
I am not a tool for your conviction
we have lost all time and art

As I approach the light...my eyes begin to burn

[chorus]
You drink and you drink, do you ever consider?
That you're drinking your life away
You drink and you drink, do you ever consider?
That you're wasting your life away

I can take care of myself

This poison is my lubricant
Pumped through my blood and veins
I try too hard to stop it
But end up back again

I am a victim of my own
Habits, forces of weakness
Drowning in sorrow alone
Twisting unconsciousness

The moon is so bright, and this bottle is so beautiful

The closer I come to it...the brighter it becomes

[chorus]
You drink and you drink, do you ever consider?
That you're drinking your life away
You drink and you drink, do you ever consider?
That you're wasting your life away

I will quit by myself

The longer this goes on...the worse that I become...
I can't take the pain inside any more

[chorus]
You drink and you drink, do you ever consider?
That you're drinking your life away
You drink and you drink, do you ever consider?
That you're breaking away

I will die by myself
Track Name: Fool's Gold
All this time I've been searching for a brighter light
Now I realize that there is none
All this time I've been searching for a way out
Now I realize that there is none

This gold is my loneliness
Brighter than the sun
There's nothing like this
I am the chosen one

I have nothing left, but my sight
Nostalgia is what kills me
I see nothing else, but a bright light
Now I realize that there is nothing

All my life I've been searching for this brighter light
Now I realize that there is none

I can see what is left
I need what you want
Look at me in my eyes
See their shine, bright as gold

All my life, I've been looking for you
All my life, you are my light

Fool's Gold
Fooled ya!
It tastes like fire
And I know it's childish
But you don't understand me
And you will never find me

All my life I've been searching for this brighter light
Just to find out that there is none
The light is too bright for my weak eyes and I will die

All this time I've been searching for a brighter light
Now I realize that there is none
All this time I've been searching for a way out
Now I realize that there is none
Track Name: Build to Annihilate
Build to annihilate
Destroy and dominate
I am god

Create, incinerate
Built to abominate

Struggle to find a god who I can trust
Create society for all our disgust

If my story ends here alone
I don't think I'll mind

Annihilate
Assimilate

Build to annihilate
Destroy and dominate
I'm no god

Prophet to save us all
Speaks for my heart
Blue eyes as bright as gold
My light for art
Track Name: Silent Oblivion
Our world is ending
Our lives are gone
Life's not worth living
Dead all along

The world's a wonderful sight
Floating there, surrounded by night

If my story ends here alone, I don't think I'll min
Floating free, it's the last thing I'll see
I've thought of your grace in the starlit sky
I wonder in the night

This is oblivion
I won't be the one to die
I won't be the one to beg
Get down on your knees
Do as I please
Are you silent?

Are you silent?
Are you dead yet?

Our end is nearing
Our eyes are black
Death sees us weeping
Silent attack

When dreams are forgotten, and all hope is gone
When promises are stolen, this life carries on
I'll wait for a while, let the engines run
I'll think of your smile, but I'm all done

I picture you, in warm summer skies
I think of us, and then close my eyes
It's all of this I wanted, but never forget
I'd trade it for you, and one more moment yet

I think of you under the starlight
I think of you in my dreams, my dreams tonight
I think of you under the moonlit night
I think of you and I know I'll be alright

Silent oblivion is louder than war eternal
This is the end, the skies turn black

Our world was dead all along
Track Name: Empty
I am empty inside, but your love fills the void
I was down deep inside, then I knew I'd seen the light

[chorus]
When you're down I'll console you
When you're lost I'll come find you
When you're lonely I'll love you
I'll never let you, never let you go

There's a hole in my heart
No one can fill the darkness inside of me

I wish upon a star to be where you are
I just can't stand this distance
Without you what's existence

I wish upon a star to be where you are (I need you now, more than ever)
I just can't stand this distance (I want you now, more than...)
Without you

I live in paradise
But I miss you

[chorus]
When you're down I'll console you
When you're lost I'll come find you
When you're lonely I'll love you
I'll never let you, never let you go

I wish upon a star to be where you are (when I needed you, you were there)
I just can't stand this distance (when I longed for you)
Without you what's existence (you were there)

I live in paradise
I'd die for you

[chorus]
When you're down I'll console you
When you're lost I'll come find you
When you're lonely I'll love you
I'll never let you, never let you go
