01. Samsara

Freedom is slavery.
War is peace.
Ignorance is Strength.
Existence is
suffering.


02. Unrest

I've walked these streets a thousand times, still this world never seemed colder
Compromised a thousand times to the will of malicious minds
Reality never hit so fucking hard
Crushed by endless desperation, endless surrender
Retrace the steps, retrace the steps
Is this what I have become?
Retrace the steps, retrace the steps
What the fuck have I become?
Security, illusion for the weak
Refuge, sought in routine
Another gear in their fucking machine
See, you can win the rat race but you're still nothing but a fucking rat
So seek that crown, because in this kingdom of fools true ignorance reigns supreme
I see this city for what it is, a monument to the depths of human misery
Retrace the steps
What have we become?


03. Sleepwalker

Consumed,
I feel the rage growing inside me,
A fear i cannot contain,
At war with an enemy that does not rest who will never relent
This city, these lifeless catacombs, our tombs they have become
Buried alive at birth never to return
Chained the masses, trapped and trained by vicious minds,
I let them tear away everything inside,
Strip away my humanity,
Fracture my identity,
Sacrifice my integrity,
Just bodies through the teeth of the combine,
At war with an enemy that does not rest who will never relent,
Sleepwalk our lives away,
In search for shallow graves,
Sleepwalk our lives away
Lost souls, lost
Just bodies through the teeth of the combine,
Just bodies through the teeth
Consumed,
I feel the rage growing inside me,
I will not contain
I have come to question every truth i know
Not one more step in the name of progress,
In the name of blind ambition,
How the fuck am i supposed to feel when everything i know lies broken at my feet


04. Wreckage

I am the blackest soul
The child of a loveless world
The wreckage left in the wake of time
I am the consequence of complete collapse
I am the horror you created
The mind fuck you instigated
I am the seed of self-destruction, the bitter taste of life's reger
Flood my lungs
Pull my teeth
Cross my eyes until there's nothing left
There's nothing left
Casualties to the snares of modern life
Anchored by avarice, there is no further left to sink
I reside in my mind's eye, yet see no truth in a world of lies
I reside in my mind's eye
We are adrift in a world of lies
Flood my lungs
Pull my teeth
Cross my eyes until there's nothing left
I am the blackest soul
The child of a loveless world
I am the consequence of complete collapse
I am the blackest soul


05. Deadweight

This is survival
This is my exile
I find no solace
I find no solace beneath a Godless sky
Will I find shelter in the places the Sun could never find?
Now behold the consequence, the aftermath of ignorance, shackled to my worthless neck
Give me one reason to resist
So I slip below
I can't resist the undertow
I find no solace beneath a Godless sky
Will I find shelter in the places the Sun could never find?
Because everything's turning black and I see no hope of turning back
Cold terror grips my lungs, to let it in would be to accept defeat
But what's left to fight for?
When I look inside, nothingness confronts me
Vexed by the hands of time
This is survival
I against I
What's left inside?
So I slip below
I can't resist the undertow
I can't resist
No, I can feel the deadweight
I can feel the deadweight of my soul dragging me from this world


06. Alone

Shifting light outlines my battered form
Stranger to the world, alone in my abandonment
A gaining army of white horses, stark warning before the icy front
The deceiving calm betrays all signs of impeding change
Evening tide what do you hide, damnation or salvation?
As my skin breaks the blackened surface, the cold is rising, yer all embracing
Darkness, erase this lonesome place from my every existence
An angry sky bares the signs, a distant violence yet to break
The ocean's travellers cry forth across the waves
Lightning cracks across a vast horizon, reaching out its hands towards an unsuspecting shore
No light to guide
No ties, no ties to bind
Evening Tide what do you hide?
To the years spent waiting on the winds of change, this is penance paid
This is my penance paid, to the morning Sun, whose warmth never found this young man's face
Shifting light outlines my battered form
Stranger to the world
Alone
Evening tide, what do you hide? Lightning cracks across a vast horizon, reaching out its hand towards an unsuspecting shore
With a final effort I strike out across the swells, seeking only the answers, maybe horizons hold


07. Pressures

Their voices search for me through the darkness, yet I feel desire's cold grip upon my heart no more
My solitude
My shield
My armour
Tested with full force
I have seen the face of death and I choose not to accept its form
I have seen the face of death
An army of demons summoned forth, upon this endless night they swam
The fire in their eyes, like new Suns shire through the abyss
I taste the fear
I see the weakness in their eyes
They cannot hide as I devour all
As the mountains crack and the oceans boil, a fury-tempered heart is forged
Within the flames, this current of corruption will cease
I taste the fear
I see the weakness in their eyes
They cannot hide as I devour all
An army of demons summoned forth
Upon this endless night they swarm
The fire in their eyes, like new Suns shine trough the abyss
I have seen the face of death
I have seen the face of death and I choose not to accept its form
My solitude
My shield
My armour
Tested with full force
Their voices search for me through the darkness, yet I feel desire's cold grip upon my heart no more


08. Deliver Me

Deliver me
From the darkest abyss, from the depths of eternal rest
Grasping at the threads of sanity, only to watch them slip through my hands
I see the light
I see the end
I see a frail hope, crushed by the weight of the world
My will is broken
Sinking, always sinking
The sands of time forever slipping
Clawing at the emptiness, but a ghost I reach towards the end
Lost in darkness
Lost in time
Losing a grip on my fucking mind
Ignorance is an easy friend but in the end it takes everything
Fear, it finds me and it binds me
Illuminate the planes of consciousness
Fear, it finds me
and it binds me
But I'm lost
Guilt draws me down like a stone
it chokes my throat, and gnaws my bones
Regret breeds a heavy heart
Reality, torn in two
Canonised, a life that fades before my eyes
Ever faithful friend, sorrow, sets its teeth
Eaten alive
But I will survive
I survive
Fury, deliver me
How can you defeat what you can't kill?
Deliver me
I see the fear that twists inside
Deliver me
I watch the shadows fill with doubt
Deliver me
Fury deliver me


09. Karma

Crashing to the surface
My convictions lay bare before the tempest
As chaos explodes around me, I find myself in the jaws of destruction
Tested, by the force of the tempest
Pushed, to the point of no return
Losing ground
Let the steel of my resolve be not bested by the sum of my fears
Clarity unfolds, a moments calm in the eye of the storm
Relentless, I surge onward
Surfacing
No regrets
No second chance
Nothing will hold me back
Shipwrecked bones carry my seasick heart home
Carry me home
Tension clings to me
Resistance coils inside
Forcing me down, I fear nothing, into Poseidon's arms.
Forcing me down, I fear nothing, I must hold o
This is a strength born in misery
A focus cut of this insanity
I fight my way from the gates of hell
I hold on
A body, locked in the vice grip of conflict
A mind, sharpened on the shards of disappointment
And from the depths of Hell I rise
From gilded cage, my spirit flies
Memories of another life call me home
Surfacing
Shipwrecked bones
carry my seasick heart home


10. Home Is For The Heartless

If home is where the heart is, why do I feel so fucking heartless?
The crumbling skyline cuts a vicious horizon, sinking its teeth into the cold September sky
Decaying towers of steel reach with crooked spires for the heavens, like bones of the hollow chest of this town, torn wide for the scavengers
Mother mercy, take my hand
Follow me through this forsaken land
Father time, return what's mine
The innocence you stole from these eyes
Because I feel numb. For the vision burning before me is one of former glory
An icon cast in the light of freer times, now writhes in a bed of lies
Hope doesn't live here
Love doesn't live here anymore
Mother mercy, take my hand
Follow me through this forsaken land
Father time, return what's mine
The innocence you stole from these eyes
Because I just feel numb


11. Hollow

My truth has been revealed, at the cost of everything I knew
My last safe-haven falls behind me, with the self that once consumed
Into the void
I'm pursuing only answers
I'm shedding skins and faces, past loves and bitter hatreds
And it has come to pass, a path set in stone now breaks like glass
The failings of yesterday become the catalyst to seek my change
And it has come to pass, a path set in stone now breaks like glass
The failings of yesterday become my catalyst
So here I stand, a stranger to my newfound freedom
I am a vessel
I am a vessel without destination, devoid of direction
No roles define m, yet conflict embraces me
At the mercy if lucidity, I am adrift in a world all to real
A hollow man
Into the arms of eternal struggle, I must condemn my restless mind
And it has come to pass, a path set in stone now breaks like glass
The failings of yesterday become the catalyst to seek my change
And it has come to pass, a path set in stone now breaks like glass
The failings of yesterday become my catalyst I seek the guidance gained from silence
Illumination from within the darkness
My council kept with the emptiness, in the heart of the unknown


12. Leviathan I

But there is no silence.
My thoughts drowned out.
Screeching and grinding resonates through a hollow shell.
There is no great wisdom.
There are no answers.

I close my eyes, but all I see is red.
I bite my tongue, but all I taste is blood.
Once again they set their traps, set their hooks, deep in my head.
Too naive to think these forked tongues would themselves devour.

Show me war.
Show me pestilence.
Show me the blood red hands of retribution.

And the abyss stares back.
Leviathan I.

To break their hold, strip the flesh straight from their bones.

Cast their limbs into the gears of the beast.
Bring this monstrosity to its knee's.
Eye for an eye.

I'll send this world blind.
Show me war.
Show me pestilence.
Show me the blood red hands of retribution.

And the abyss stares back.
Leviathan I.

Under a blackened Sun.
Beneath a hunter's moon.
Seething.

Dogs of war, they call for blood but it will not be mine.


13. Set To Destroy

Brothers of abandonment, sisters of despair
Orphans to the watching ones above
Too far removed, too far to care
We are the unwanted
We are the one true threat
We raise our hands to this World's throat choke away its dying breath
This is the end of days, this is the end of days, this is the end of days
Set to destroy
Fathers to our faithless days, mothers to our twisted ways
Bow your heads
Fold your hands and pray
Your time has come
This is the end of days, this is the end of days, this is the end of days
Set to destroy
Your flame is faded, so sink below
Rest now your heavy head upon
your bed of bones
Too far removed
Too far to care
Set to destroy
