Track Name: Wasted Prayer
Wasted Prayer

It’s all the same to me
no matter your tone or the words you fabricate
Judging by the way you move around so easy and try to reciprocate
Your bitching your moaning your problems aren’t mine so don’t try to waste another single breath on me
How do you pray and think it’s all OK to think your prayers aren’t wasted on me?
The truth behind the lie
It’s all the same to me
The truth is in your eye
Yet still too blind to see
How do you say you have all the answers when the question doesn’t forgive?
Withering down to nothing never seemed to be a valid reason to live
It’s the reasons you chose to form an everlasting cryptic sight of judgment led by disbelief
The wolf that eats the sheep without guilt becomes the one who determines all your grief
Cast another light
Who opens up to find a better day that mend all the words you say?
Who will face the fight?
Don’t hide your face to find another reason to bring your darkness to light
Where to you think you’ll stand in a world that thrives on judgment?
Where do you think you’ll be when the world gives up on your pathetic compromise?
The non-existing compromise that always manages to slap me in the face
(who’s right?)
You scream “bloody murder” when you pull the trigger no matter who’s in your sights
Your bleeding soul won’t bleed when faced with the world and it’s wrath
The people you face, the truth you hide will be the hand that reaches out to pull you back
We cast another light
Who opens up to find a better day that mend all the words you say?
Who will face the fight?
Don’t hide your face to find another reason to bring your darkness to light
Solo (Mike)
We cast another light
Who opens up to find another day that mend all the words you say?
What is it you see?
Don’t count your days and be another victim to waste your prayers on me!
Track Name: Engage The Weak
Engage The Weak

Engage the weak
Don’t let them speak
Don’t let them suck you in
Counting all the concepts and evolutions countered that will hinder your life
when you begin to speak
All the blame that never seems to turn around on you because the words
you say are deaf on your ears
To hear the tragic false perception that you put on yourself reveals every
single fragment that you feel is right
Who will close the door?
Who will take a stand?
Who will close the door and fight for a chance?
If you don’t want to do the time
And don’t want to pay for the crime
If you want to come at me with your crucifix
Then stand in line and take a number
But know that my number could be 666
Breathing out spitting venom to the masses trigger torturous rules that
make no sense
But we find the fight to face the fist to fight your karma breaking all the rules
that you make
To see the only false hope you put on yourself not coming clear and not
making a sound
When driving it home isn’t what you expect it only makes us go around and round and round…
Who will close the door?
Who will take a stand?
Who will close the door and fight for a second chance?
If you don’t want to do the time
And don’t want to pay for the crime
If you’re going to come at me with your crucifix
Then stand in line, take a number
and know that my number could be 666
Track Name: Devilfinger
Devilfinger

Eyes that shift away in to the distance of what I say
Minds that can’t connect and blur the value of retrospect
I see it now
Coming to the foresight counter every movement that I make
(until I)
move into the foreground of beliefs that you forsake
Piercing my eyes, your eyes, our eyes just to see eye to eye
Forged in what we’re taught not what becomes our demise
Bound, in trust
with truth, in lies
Bound, in words
with love, we cry
War, till death
and death, we part
Trust, becomes
the war we start
How can I ever stare into your eyes again?
Judging while you pull the trigger
staring down your devilfinger
Judging by the way your foresight forces your opinion down on
me (on me)
your opinion hits a nerve and sets off the war we have between
my mind, your mind, our mind just to meet mind to mind
Can we find the ground before the future’s our demise?
Bound, in trust
with truth, in lies
We’re bound, in words
with love, we cry
War, till death
and death, we part
Trust, becomes
the war we start
How can I ever stare into your eyes again?
Judging while you pull the trigger
staring down your devilfinger
Solo (Mike)
Eyes that shift away into the distance of what I say
Minds that can’t connect
(that won’t connect)
and blur the value of retrospect
I see it now
Track Name: Nothing Left
Nothing Left

When you stand and think back on decisions that were made
Compromising, retrospect, devour everything you say
When you speak without denying all the choices that were handed out
Encompassing the guilt, the dying wage that feeds the hand but not the mouth
Are you willing to cross the line with your back against the wall?
Ignore the warnings and the signs that tell you nothing at all
Coming to an end and feeling your life is a victim of theft
Are you willing to take the fall and realize you have nothing left?
When you wake and sense the torture that comes from deep inside
Channeling the rage in retrospect to tempt the demons that control your mind
When you die and see the pattern of a trusted victim’s soul
To feel the fear you can’t hide but risk your life to break the mold
Solo (Tim)
Track Name: The Unforgiving Disease
The Unforgiving Disease

Blind to the bottle
to think everything revolves around you and wise to the claim
that anyone gives a fuck about what you do
Bring back the day
When everyone just wanted to hear
your voice
Now in this time
You give no reason but to give us all a choice
Trace it back to the beginning of how it started at all
Death became the beginning of when you started to trip and fall
We’re tired of hearing the excuses you give, the lines you throw our way
Who can expect to see a change in you when you live for a better day?
We’re tired of hearing the empty promise, the cure is still in sight
Who can expect to see a change in you when you’ve given up the fight?
Back to the day
When your voice could still be heard
Black is the day
When no one wants to hear a single word
Why is it so hard to reach out for a helping hand?
Help is there but there’s no help if you take a stand.
Track Name: Trapped On Your Side
Trapped On Your Side

Black, before I even knew you existed as a vice
Blind, despise is how you fuel your enemies
Peace of mind and piece of soul is what you take
Please the ones that still determine your pathetic name sake
How can I be on your side?
And see what you’ve become when we’re forced to be trapped on your side
Where no one’s ever won
Don’t bleed regret when your day has come
Don’t fake regret because the life you live came crashing down
Don’t make a promise
I’ll call your bluff
Don’t make a promise when the choices you made were not so tough
To be a man and the decisions that you make
Despite your luck, the luck you’ve risen when all you do is take
Reach to who? Because there’s no one there that wants to stay
Your pity, not silence is the only game you know how to play
How can I be on your side?
And see what you’ve become when we’re forced to be trapped on your side
Where no one’s ever won
Who do you think you are to treat us all like this?
Who do you think is the one you will miss?
Greed paranoia
An unintelligent claim
Your self-absorbed institution is the only place you will stay
Solo (Mike)
Stay away and keep your standards to yourself
Why decay when everyone that surrounds you is your wealth?
Why is it you’re pleased by lies and the deception you live everyday?
Become the lie because you teach yourself to learn another way
How can I be on your side?
And see what you’ve become when we’re forced to be trapped on your side
Where no one’s ever won
It’s come to an end
it’s our final task
it’s the only way out from the selfish things you ask
You bleed regret and you wonder why
You cry your problems and all we do is watch from a distant eye
Solo (Tim)
Track Name: Or The One
Or The One

Who holds the key that unlocks the state we’re in?
Who holds the lock that decides the outcome of who loses and who wins?
Sticking to the ground because the world you see is black
The carousel that turns your mind
Countless reasons that are cryptic to the judgment of the mercy rule you put in place
Beating yourself blind in a war that feeds the only dying need to persecute your faith
In a lonely hall filled with memories that camouflage the primal source of everything you hate
I will not turn my back
I will not contemplate your fate
But in the end when your day is finally here do you save the masses from their trials or disappear?
Solo (Tim)
Primal instinct will endure the persecution that is set in place for the weak
The weak rebel to take what’s theirs and end the war that taught rebellion how to speak
I will not turn my back
I will not contemplate your fate
But in the end when your day is finally here do you save the masses from their trials or disappear?
Burning doom to this entitled world who breaths the final breath to keep us all alive
Beginning, strength, chaos captures all the meaning that will sentence us to die
Standing without a sense of purpose to the cause will only fuel the drive to make this right
Clenching your fist to shake the hand of guilt to let you know you’re in for a fight
I will not turn my back
I will not contemplate your fate
And in the end when your day is finally won do you save the masses, or the one??
Track Name: Human
Human

When you listen to the sound of the voice inside your head
What does it tell you to say?
Does it pull you apart? Does it reflect on your decisions?
to make what matters go away
When your actions speak but they aren’t louder than your words
The words that go for the throat
And knowing what comes next is the voice that brings you down
And all that’s left are the words you wrote
Do you think you can run and hide?
(I’ll never run, I’ll never hide)
When all that’s left is the belief in the fight
Do you think I will run and hide?
(I’ll never run, I’ll never hide)
When all that’s left is your pale dim light
Now I can see where we’ve been and I’ll bring back the day to make it fall in line
How can I expect you to change for the disease that I brought to you all this time
An ultimatum with a dead-end sentence
brings out the weakest part of me
Cry out with guilt with an empty bleeding heart
The torture makes me land on my knees
Do you think you can run and hide?
(I’ll never run, I’ll never hide)
When all that’s left is the belief in the fight
Do you think you will run and hide?
(I’ll never run, I’ll never hide)
When all that’s left is your pale dim light
You showed the mirror of me in the mirror of you and we need to begin
Because, there’s something about being scared to death that bring me to life and makes me feel human again
Solo (Tim)
