Track Name: Dawn of Decay
Mutation; you bring this scar onto me • Sedation; The death of what I could be • Disintegration; I'm so uncontrolled • We are the devils; our hearts are bought and sold • Wait for the light; Shine ever bright; Fall in-between; Never-ending screams • Stream; it flows like hate eternal • Corrosion; Nothing to brace the fall • Illumination; I'm tearing at the seams • We are the devils; and things aren't what they seem • Wait for so long • Everything's so wrong • Am I led astray? Dawning of decay • I'll see when the truth corrodes; I'll bleed till the sky explodes
Track Name: Bleed
Caustic annihilation as far as the eye can see • Devils are all around me laughing writhing in victory • One is the same, one is the other • One is the pain, one is the brother • We see, like brothers we bleed • The burning eyes, they love to see you • Another choking breath • And all of the things you have inside you • The beauty, the hatred, the death • One is the same, one is the other • One is the pain, one is the brother • One is the vile and filth that we breed • One is the edge of the knife and the color we bleed • Like brothers we bleed • Now bleed • Rise again, insidious • Death to son Lazarus • Like the night kills the day • Sacrifice and burn away • Caustic annihilation as far as the eye can see • Devils are all around me laughing writhing in victory • One is the same, one is the other • One is the pain, one is the brother • One is the vile and filth that we breed • One is the edge of the knife and the color we bleed Like brothers we bleed
Track Name: Leave Your Skin at the Door
I want to feel the something that is deep inside of you • I want to feel the emptiness that I know you feel too • Never wanted fixation, never wanted to break • I never wanted salvation or the scars left in your wake • Next time, we leave our skin at the door • Left here dead inside, harvesting your trust • Skinless and cast aside, a way to vent my lust • Next time, we leave our skin at the door Next time, we leave our skin at the door • Writhing, Unholy flame • Shameless and I'm the same • Sinking, cold device • Loveless, Paradise • I love and adore, you're begging for more, you're my little whore • Leave your skin at the door • Writhing, Unholy flame • Shameless, and I'm the same • Sinking, cold device • Loveless, Paradise • I love and adore, you're begging for more, you're my little whore • Leave your skin at the door Next time, we leave our skin at the door • Writhing, Unholy flame • Shameless and I'm the same • Sinking, cold device • Loveless, Paradise • I love and adore, you're begging for more, you're my little whore • Leave your skin at the door • Writhing, Unholy flame • Shameless, and I'm the same • Sinking, cold device • Loveless, Paradise • I love and adore, you're begging for more, you're my little whore • Leave your skin at the door
Track Name: Exit Life
Throw away your life for this, dead and gone and cowardice • My revenge, now it's over • One more time to kill the pain • Everyday I defy you • Everyday it's all the same • What do you do with the hate inside you? • And you feel the pain and strife? • What do you do with the walls around you? • Or when they show the knife? • No blame as I exit life, no shame as I exit life • Not real, as I exit life • Cold steel, as I exit life • Falling down, now it's over • You want to take the blame? • I want to break down the walls around me • You want to feel the same • You tear out the heart that breaks you? • I won't even try • Crucified, endless martyr • I don't have time to die • I don't have time to die • I won't live my life for this, deep inside the cold abyss
Track Name: Psychic Vampire
Give in as they mentally rape you, so what? • They lie and deny, imitate you • Who cares? • Awaken their love, feeding frenzy • Blood lust • Give in and comply and I hate you, in disgust • Psychic vampires suck the life from you • Do as they say • Do as they do • The leeches they writhe as they drain you to the bone • They dig with their teeth and their razors, in your flesh • Inside of the body collecting • Pure greed • You live and you die and upon you, they feed • Psychic vampires suck the life from you • Do as they say • Do as they do • Psychic vampires constantly in pain, all in your head • Crawl in your brain • It's in your head and you've bled Your life goes by in a mindless bliss • Sucking you dry and you can't resist
Never your own are the thoughts in your head. Killing you slow, sleep with the dead
Track Name: King of Blood
Open the vein and bleed • Promise to take his seed • Welcome the suffering • Killing a lifeless thing • So set us free of this mortal prison • You only see what we want to see instead • It's red • Sympathy, the time has past • Save us now from the foggy eyes of the dead • The dead • Nothing left to hate or spurn • Time’s up • We all had our turn • I know you will never learn • So light the match and watch this fucker burn • So set us free of this moral prison • Save us now from the holy life we lead, we bled • Sympathy, the time has past • Save us now with the holy book we read • We're dead • Nothing left to hate or spurn • Time’s up • We all had our turn • I know you will never learn • So light the match and watch this fucker burn • An offering • The empty heart that I will give to you • Only vice • Sacrifice unto the king of blood Nothing left to hate or spurn • Time’s up • We all had our turn • I know you will never learn • So light the match and watch this fucker burn • An offering • The empty heart that I will give to you • Only vice • Sacrifice unto the king of blood Nothing left to hate or spurn • Time’s up • We all had our turn • I know you will never learn • So light the match and watch this fucker burn • An offering • The empty heart that I will give to you • Only vice • Sacrifice unto the king of blood

Track Name: Hammer of the Witch
You suffocate, I bind your limbs • You suck the life from me, like leeches on your skin • Soulless fraud, turn the screw, no act of god, as I judge you • Forked tongue; disguise of vanity • Poison; evil alchemy • Die young; there for all to see • You will feel the Hammer of the Witch • Now burn alive with me • Hanging from the highest tree • Give you all insanity • You will feel the Hammer of the Witch • The master of the sacred lies • To break you on the wheel with daggers in your eyes • Unholy death, confession signed • Forked tongue; disguise of vanity • Poison; evil alchemy • Die young; there for all to see • You will feel the Hammer of the Witch • Now burn alive with me • Hanging from the highest tree • Give you all insanity • You will feel the Hammer of the Witch • We strip the flesh and we disown • I'd die a million deaths to see you die alone • Alone • Rite of violence; Satan's bitch • Feel the icy water • Damn the witch Slowly the point will break the skin • To hear the tries of guilt, confession of your sins • Impaled by truth; condemned by life • To see you inside your soul and open with a knife • Into the flame you descend, denying the truth ‘til the end • Your body will soon be of ash; feeding the Devil your flesh • Into the grave in the ditch; burning alive Devil bitch • All of the pain that you feel • The Hammer of the Witch
Track Name: We'll Always Have the End
So much for a god in the sky • He never will answer you why • The reaper is coming again, but thank god, we'll always have the end • To late for forgiveness, I try to let things go • No room for a weakness • I'll never let it show • No • Treacherous breaking the womb • Wrapped so tight, the end becomes a tomb • No hell that comes with the flood • Just these words inked in tears and blood • To late for forgiveness, I try to let things mend • Becoming a sickness, that steals my soul again • Looking for a way out • Or just to comprehend • To hate you for so long, that you become my friend • We'll always have, always have the end
We pretend just to see it fall in the end • The life exhumed, the exit wound • There's no resent • We always have the end
Track Name: One of Us is Going to Have to Die.
Razor line, you feel the cold divide • Battle cry, open the Devil's eye • Long goodbye, as blood will fill the sky • One of us is going to have to die • All this time, words that lie • The difference comes clear • Paralyzed, crawling skin • Every time you're near • Fallacy, ignorance • A punishment severe • Razor line, you feel the cold divide • Battle cry, open the Devil's eye • Long goodbye, as blood will fill the sky • One of us is going to have to die • Setting sun, end begun • Falling shadows so dear • Wasted life, wasted breath • Another wasted year • Looking back, feelings gone • I won't shed a tear • This is now, what was meant • Just to disappear Razor line, you feel the cold divide • Battle cry, open the Devil's eye • Long goodbye, as blood will fill the sky • One of us is going to have to die • Violent devastation, final battle cry • An end to all confrontation • One of us will have to die • What I'd love to see • Sinking in a sea • Washing over me • Blood of enemy • War of atrophy • Final mystery • Morbid history • Final anarchy • Wasted years of pain • Now we break the chain • Nothing else remains • Loss is now my gain • It was never true • Done and now it’s through • End of what you knew • End of me and you
Track Name: Vicious Circle of Life
Torn apart and ripped to shreds • Broken down and held by threads • Hit the bottom, nothing left to lose • Haunted by a faded glory • My heart could tell a million stories • Scars become a road map of my pain • And this is the way it has to be my son • Drag the bottom, sufferings not done • Hear the siren, hear the marching drum • The closer you get, the further it becomes • Light the sky; burn the dead • In the graveyard in my head • So take it all, there's nothing left to kill • All the cycles have begun • Time erases everyone • Wash away your memory • With your flood • And this is the way it has to be my son • Drag the bottom, sufferings not done • Hear the siren, hear the marching drum • The closer you get, the further it becomes • Cutting you down: you wrap your arms around my heart • Into the ground and watch it slowly tear apart • It's just the vicious circle of life • There's too much pain to let it show • It's just the vicious circle of life • And it is time to let it go • Let go
All the hate you want to feel; Justice is gone nothing is real • It's gone • Who am I supposed to be? • What do you want from me? • Feeling is absentee • Emotional amputee • Who am I supposed to be? • What do you want from me? • Nothing is ever free • Is this what you paid to see? • The vicious circle of life • The vicious circle of life • The vicious circle of life
Track Name: Die Like a Pig
Glorious the end to be, crucified in lust • Curse of all that’s left to see, fears that bend your trust • Failing by your loyalty, all your heroes hung • Your world means nothing to me, I don't belong • Haunted by the things we did • I'll never die like a pig • Buried in the graves we dig • I'll never die like a pig • Prophecy • Dystopia • Lifeless we exist • Razor of euphoria running down your wrist • By design you build your shrines, jealousy, distrust • Like a swine we fail in line, corroding into dust • Haunted by the things we did • I'll never die like a pig • Buried in the graves we dig • I'll never die like a pig • Every morning I relive • I'll never die like a pig • Only worth what you can give • I'll never die like a pig • You survive believing you're alive: feeding the rest of the hive • Now betrayed, believing you are saved, living your life from the grave • You, drone • It's not your own • Cutting yourself to the bone • Swine • Pig • You're all alone • Now dig, dying like a pig We're all dying like pigs
Track Name: Height of Revelation
Carry on my demons • Carry on, on broken wings • And burn alive in heaven burn alive with all your kings • Was it fate that brought you to me? • Feeling is gone • Blinded by the hope that would be • I carry on • Once again I serve two masters, living in hell • Cutting out a vicious cancer • No way to escape • Height of revelation; open wide • I feel your pain; your pain • So let it fall upon me; let it fall like crimson rain Now choking tight • Sacred rite • Feel the anger burning bright • All alone • I disown • And the master takes his throne • Lord of Flies • God of Lies • As the lifeless one Baptize • Prey for this, Devil's kiss • Just to hear the serpents hiss • Feeling is gone: I carry on • Living in hell, No way to escape
