01. Sparks

Born of dust and stone
Dead hearts roaming a dying home
Fight leaves us all
White cloths upon the shores of time
We are but sparks in a darkened world, and yet some things were born to
Burn

The name long in your eye
Lays on my cold hard knee
If you bring the matches
I'll bring the gasoline

I'm the same bad news as you
Your're the same kind of fucked as me
I'm the same bad news as you
You're the same
You're the same as me


02. Old Ghost / New Regrets

Forever fucked
We wage a war of suffering a deceit
100 thousand years of dreaming, drowned in a flood of fear and greed
Precious heritage laid waste before the chainsaws snarling teeth
Bleed the earth, bleed her 'til her heart no longer beats

And still we wonder why
As the ground beneath our feet turns to dust
The air we breathe, laced with poisons
A legacy of disgust
A legacy of sorrow
So we're born with nothing and we die alone

We're born with nothing
And we die alone
Regret is all we have
Death is all we know
[2x]

Forever fucked
Eradicate the truths of history
Train our eyes, train our minds so we no longer see the casualties
Countless cultures murdered, generations stolen and deceived
No guilt to bear
Born to consume, to breed, to deny all that makes us free

We're born with nothing and we die alone

We're born with nothing and we die alone
We're born with nothing
We die alone
[2x]

We die alone

Forever fucked
We're born with nothing and we die alone
We're born with nothing
We die alone


03. Dream Run

Do you remember all those nights
That we stood side by side
And we said we'll save the goodbyes
The night is young, we still have time
In my dreams I see it ending
I see, I see the sky descending
And I'll let the seconds
Rip in to my heart
Cause in my dreams i fear of falling
When I hear the darkness calling
Dont wake me up until the morning's night
Cause ive never felt more alive.
Do you remember all those nights
That we stood side by side
And we said we'll save the goodbyes
The night is young.
Well I never, never, never wanna press rewind
Every mistake that lead us here I wouldn't change for anything
I wouldn't change for anything.
Stand up
There is a wall that stands between us and them?
See this was never about giving up, just giving in
Because you only live once
But you spend your whole life dying
So when it all comes crashing, know you're not alone
You only live once
But you spend your whole life dying
So when it all comes crashing, know you're not alone
Alone!
Alone!
Alone!
There is no death with all our sins
There is no fear when this life ends
There is no fear
Do you remember?
Do you remember?
Do you remember all those nights
That we stood side by side
And we said we'll save the goodbyes
The night is young, we still have time
Do you remember all those nights
That we stood side by side
And we said we'll save the goodbyes
The night is young, we still have time
Cause i've never felt more alive
I've felt more alive
Alive!
Alive!
Alive!


04. Wild Eyes

We built our dreams from the ashes of your nightmares
Carried our fathers sins, from the cradle to our grave
We paved our paths through the darkness that you left us in
And now we writhe in the belly of the beast
We are the diamonds that used to be coal
A generation born to witness the end of the world
Against the grain
Against the odds
Against the world
Forever the underdogs
We are the bastard sons.
We are the ones that refuse to grow cold
We are the thorn in your side
We are the thieves in the night
And we are coming to take whats ours
No regrets
We inherit the sins of the fathers
Now reap the vengeance
No regrets
From the ashes of your nightmares
From the cradle to our grave
We blazed our paths through the darkness that you left us in
And now we writhe in the belly of the beast
We are the diamonds that choose to be coal
A generation born to witness the end of the world
Born to witness the end of the world
Before the underdogs


05. Dark Days

What will you tell your children when they ask you "What went wrong?"?
How can you paint a picture of a paradise lost
To eyes that know only a wasteland?
How will you justify, justify, watching the world die?

The clock is ticking, can't you feel our days are numbered
Head first into disaster from which there will be no return
With narrow minds we decimate our one true home
Cast into oblivion, judgment is calling

(Hey, hey) Behold the pale horse
(Hey, hey) This is the funeral of the Earth
(Hey, hey) Behold the pale horse
(Hey, hey) This is the funeral

The blind eye can no longer be cast
The clock is ticking, there is no second chance

The blind eye can no longer be cast
There will be no future, if we can't learn from our mistakes
The clock is ticking, there is no second chance
There will be no future, if we can't learn

A forced extinction closes out the age of apathy
The final act, sacrifice the world's ecology
The death of beauty, the death of hope
Cast before the throne of avarice, judgment is calling

(Hey, hey) Behold the pale horse
(Hey, hey) This is the funeral of the Earth
(Hey, hey) Behold the pale horse
(Hey, hey) This is the funeral

The blind eye can no longer be cast
There will be no future, if we can't learn from our mistakes
The clock is ticking, there is no second chance
There will be no future, if we can't learn

[Guitar Solo]

[x7]
I can't watch it burn

Behold the pale horse


06. The River

Follow your heart to the water
Fill your pockets with stone
Throw your arms around me
Never let me go

You were the first, you wouldn't be the last
What the river took, we could never replace
And as the pain set in so did the realisation
You were never coming home
For nights we lay awake
Wishing for answers, hoping against all hope
And if love could change the course of fate
These nights, we move mountains
But as the news filtered down the line, the impact shook us
Shook us to the core
Loss struck like a dagger in our aching hearts

Follow your heart to the water
Fill your pockets with stone
Throw your arms around me
Never let me go

It's not the years in your life, it's the life in your years

Old soul, so it's said
The day we lost is the day I found regret
Now in the waters that embraced you
But in the wake your absence left

Sink into me

Hold out your hands, sink into me
Hold out your hands, I'll take you away
Hold out your hands, surrender the weight of this world

Follow your heart to the water
Fill your pockets with stone
Throw your arms around me
Never let me go

Never let me go


07. Swing

This soul was born for battle
My heart was built for war
These eyes see through the lies
Filled with disgust
Strip back the utopian rhetoric
And you'll find a sickness at the core
A septic carcass rotting out
Filled with disgust
We are the dead
Empty lives, empty heads
Guilty is as guilty fucking does
Filled with disgust
All we have to believe are the lies that they feed us
All we have to choose is the right to obey
Pray this time will be our mark on history
When the shadow games and agendas
Are wiped the fuck away
There is no such thing as different shades of truth
It'a black or white, do or die
Filled with disgust
You tie your noose with your lies but the world keeps turning
"Swing low" we cry but the world keeps turning
Turning without you
It keeps turning without you
'Cause all we have to believe
are the lies that they feed us
Born for battle
All we have to choose is the right to obey
Built for war
This was born for battle
My heart was built for war
Swing motherfuckers
End it
Built for war
Built for fucking war


08. The Slow Surrender

You've got to fight for your life
There is nothing to fear but fear itself
The Devil dances in idle minds
Fight for your life
I won't turn back now
This will be no slow surrender
I won't turn back now
Carpe Diem, straight for the throat
Conflict, the all-consuming pain
Time lost will never be regained
Don't waste your breath
You can't save your strength
The battle rages in the here and now
See every second that you waste
Is time you'll never live again
Fight for your life
Fight for your fucking life
There is a price to pay
Death is a heartbeat away
The Devil dances in idle minds
Fight for your life
I won't turn back now
This will be no slow surrender
I won't turn back now
Carpe Diem, I gotta go straight for the throat
The Devil dances in idle minds


09. Atlas

My life is a weathered down shipwreck
Splitting at the seams, held together by memories and dreams
Every face I have seen, a stitch on my mind
On a shadow of a dream
And my heart is its cargo, a worn out old thing
Been dragged around this rock more times than you'd believe
To the east I call home
But the west, she is calling
From the north, to the south
Forever I'm drifting away
With more hope than fear
Put your head to my chest and you will hear
The sound of it beating
Is the sound of love leaving
The sound of it beating
Is the sound of the emptiness flooding in
Flooding in
It's the sound of the emptiness flooding in
And my life, it aches
And my heart, it breaks
And I just can't shake the feeling all I am is sinking
While one thousand eyes stare back at me
But the ones that I'd die for are the ones I can't see
Flooding in
It's the sound of the emptiness


10. Sleight Of Hand

No comfort
Fear, in the face of the unknown
Born to die in a lonely world
Hostility, breeds within the void
Left by the loss of understanding
Hatred, the true face of ignorance
Force-fed to the masses with the promise of salvation
Knowledge controlled, power withheld
In the name of one, let all blood spill
There is no god, that could love this world
I find no comfort
In a life lived on my knees
No comfort
Devine judgement, I could never believe
No comfort
I could never believe
To live a life without regret
Is it not enough
To love, and to be loved
Nothing lasts forever
Nothing lasts
Superstition rules in the land of the weak
Fear, in the face of the unknown
Born to die in a lonely world
Hostility, breeds within the void
Left by the loss of understanding
Hatred, the true face of ignorance
Force-fed to the masses with the promise of salvation
Knowledge controlled, power withheld
In the name of one, let all blood spill
There is no god
That could love this world
I find no comfort


11. Snake Oil And Holy Water

You want a piece of my mind,
there is no peace to find
This is all of your doubt repaid in kind
I am alone in crowded rooms,
I am a ghost in forgotten tombs
Widow maker, you're no company to keep
'Cause you can fool some people, sometimes
But you can't fool the world for the rest of your life
You can fool some people, sometimes
But you can't fool the world
Nobody notices, nobody cares
The curtain falls to no one, no where
Nobody notices, nobody cares
As the curtain falls
Soulless, spineless
Cut from the beggar's cloth
You fill your skull with their shit 'til it runs from your mouth
Heartless, carcass
I've seen more life in dead men's eyes,
I've heard more truths alone with the night
And I'd rather believe in nothing than believe in a fucking lie
I'd sooner fail one thousand times than regret I've never tried
'Cause you can fool some people, sometimes
But you can't fool the world for the rest of your life
You can fool some people, sometimes
But you can't fool the world
You can't fool us all
You howl at the world, but speak a dead language
You're selling your soul, but no one is buying
You pray to your gods of fashion and industry
Heads in the clouds, but you live on your fucking knees
Nobody notices, nobody cares
The curtain falls to no one, no where
Nobody notices, nobody cares
As the curtain fucking falls
Soulless, spineless
Cut from the beggar's cloth
You fill your skull with their shit 'til it runs from your mouth
Heartless, carcass
I've seen more life in dead men's eyes,
I've heard more truths alone with the night
No peace to find


12. Blue And The Grey

Dear sky,
Dear sky don't cry for me,
(cry for me)
Be the hope I could never reach
Cold sea,
Please don't let me sink,
(don't let me sink)
Wrap your arms around me and carry me home

I stood at the shore and spoke to the ocean
I stood in the water and let my guts spill
I said "You and me, we're not so different,
I see my reflection in all that you do"

We both keep our secrets
We're both, oh so blue
My heart is full of darkness
I know that yours is too

I sat on the rooftop and screamed at the sky
I sat on the edge until I knew deep inside,
Like the sky, I will always be empty
The horizon, my love, forever just out of reach

We both keep our secrets
We're both, oh so blue
My heart is full of darkness
I know that yours is too

Distance was born when the sea and the sky grew apart
Loneliness was born the day I let you go

I let you go!

So now I stand at the shore and speak to the ocean
I stand in the water and let, let my guts spill
Let my guts spill

We both keep our secrets
We're both, oh so blue
My heart is full of darkness
I know, I know that yours is too

Dear sky,
Dear sky don't cry for me, be the hope I could never reach
Cold sea, please don't let me sink
Wrap your arms around me and carry me home

Dear Sky!
