Track Name: Lambs to Slaughter
Emptiness is all that’s everlasting
when all your suffering is absolute
Foregone is the golden age of living
remnants of what we once knew
what we once new

We balance on a razor’s edge
Never dreamed that we would falter
In the face of certain death
Fell from grace like lambs to slaughter
Track Name: Albatross
Staring in the mirror all I see is a soulless waste of life
a man evolving in reverse
A thing that should not be
an albatross, a friend to be despised
Put me below
(Underneath it) I never see, I never think, that your whole world would cease
When flash, your nothing little life is stripped away,
taken from you, from me
I’ll never give you your soul back
Put you below six feet of dirt
I wish for immediate demise

Staring in the mirror all I see is a soulless waste of life
a man evolving in reverse
A thing that should not be
an albatross, a friend to be despised
Put me below six feet of dirt
I wish for immediate demise
an end to this relentless fucking pain
No use in living out this life
Today is the perfect day to die

There’s no use hoping for tomorrow
when no one could even hope today

A man evolving in reverse
Put me below six feet of dirt
Put me below

I wish for immediate demise
an end to this relentless fucking pain
No use in living out this life
Today is the perfect to die
Track Name: Paradise Lost
Forsake me
throw us to the hungry wolves
gnash their teeth upon our bones
then we can sleep
Condemn me
Spare us the perils of the heart
let these wolves tear us apart
Rest in peace

Violent thoughts succumb to sadness and despair
a tortured ending to the happiness we shared
We paid the price before we ever new the cost
and woke one day to find our paradise was lost

Violence
Sadness
Torture
Despair
Track Name: Ties That Bind
Buried below the agonies of hell
our hopes and dreams are trampled into dust
Never retrieved are these memories
all that’s been lost is everything
Everything, everything is fucked
Cast away are the vow we sworn upon
now all that’s left is emptiness
and pain

Betrayal is the bastard of out lies
abattoir of innocence and joy

Condemned to spend eternity in hell
no hope just pain in place full of our hate
Buried below are our memories
bound by regret and misery
Betrayal is the bastard of out lies
abattoir of innocence and joy
So now it comes as no surprise
the ties that bind us have destroyed
us

Betrayal is the bastard of out lies
abattoir of innocence and joy
So now it comes as no surprise
the ties that bind us have destroyed
Track Name: Far Beyond the Grave
The silence is deafening
in this age of discontent
Endless is the suffering
endless is my resent

Bury me far beyond the grave

The silence is deafening
in this age of discontent
Endless is the suffering
endless is my resent

Bury me far beyond the grave
Since all that left is pain
below I want to lie
Bury me far beyond the grave
Track Name: Bitter End
Shame me, forsake me, my death was your kiss
Fuck me, destroy me, forget I exist
Shame me, forsake me, my death was your kiss
Fuck me, destroy me, forget I exist

It’s all a shame
this dying flame
our vows are lost but the blackness in our hearts remain

Shame me, forsake me, my death was your kiss
Fuck me, destroy me, forget I exist
Shame me, forsake me, my death was your kiss
Fuck me, destroy me, forget I exist

It’s all a shame
this dying flame
Our vows are lost but the blackness in our hearts remain
It was forever
the bitter end
but you gave me something I don’t want to feel again
Are we the same
two twisted saints
You gave me love
then you throw it all away
It’s never ending
the bitter end
You gave me something I don’t want to feel again

It’s all a shame
this dying flame
Our vows are lost but the blackness in our hearts remain
It was forever
the bitter end
but you gave me something I don’t want to feel again
Are we the same
two twisted saints
You gave me love
then you throw it all away
Under cover of night
I’ll be creeping for you
Like it or not
I will be the death of you
Track Name: Uneternal
Higher and higher we climbed
further and further we fell
Gave you my heart and you promised me heaven
but all that I’m left with is hell

When you said forever
I thought that meant until the end of time

Gave you my heart and you promised me
but all that I’m left with is hell

When you said forever
I thought that meant until the end of time
Now I see what once was never
Eternity with you is dying on the vine

Gave you my heart and you promised me heaven
but all that I’m left with is hell

When you said forever
I thought that meant until the end of time
Now I see what once was never
Eternity with you is dying on the vine
Track Name: Eviscerate
If this is the end, farewell
No sense in endless suffering
But the memories plague my soul
Jagged edges eviscerate my being
Can’t let go no matter how I try
it’s a painful and persistent sting
Stabs my heart like a thousand knives
The jagged edges eviscerate my being
eviscerate my being

Our story’s sad but true
I guess we all know why
I never said I loved you
because I never thought we’d ever have to say goodbye

I can’t let go no matter how I try
it’s a painful and persistent sting
Stabs my heart like a thousand knives
The jagged edges eviscerate my being
eviscerate my being

Our story’s sad but true
I guess we all know why
I never said I loved you
because I never thought we’d ever have to say goodbye
Track Name: Warkunt (featuring Ron Carillo from Draghoria)
Solitary
is this life that I have lead
Deep depression
has taken me far beyond the grave
Hopelessness
had all but consumed my mind with dread
Then something that happened
now things will never be the same

That feeling seems so close
but it’s never really been so far away
But if darkness fills our dreams
then they may never even see the light of day

Solitary

That feeling seems so close
but it’s never really been so far away
If darkness fills our dreams
then they may never even see the light of day
That feeling seemed do close
but it’s never really been so far away
If darkness fills our dreams
then they may never even see the light of day
