Track Name: Voices
There’s no place,
to run to I’m trapped and I’m cold.
Black heart, black mind, blank soul.
I cannot face what I fear,
‘cause what I fear is unclear.
Will I live like this forever?

I woke up lost clawing at my sheets.
Flashing lights and the devils voice calling me.
I can’t escape what’s in my head,
are you real or a medicated mess I dream?

And I tried to fight my best,
but gave in to the preacher inside my head.
They whisper the verse of a spoken curse,
as they claw at me.

I am the one who fights an undermining enemy.
When I look in the mirror he’s staring back at me.
I am the one searching for solace in a vivid dream.
A sick, twisted illusion, created by me.

From here on out I’ll be the man
you said I couldn’t be,
no longer blinded by his scars.
And when the demons come,
black out my eyes, consume my soul,
no longer live with fear at heart.

The voice I fear, whispers in my ear,
black heart, black mind, blank soul.
The voice I hear, it’s you I fear,
black heart, black mind, blank soul.

Dead, alone,
I can not feel my frail bones.
Is my heart intact?
Take me back, I relapse.
Dead, alone,
I hear the whispers call me home.
Is my heart intact?
Take me back, take me back.

Take me back.

The voice I fear, whispers in my ear,
black heart, black mind, blank soul.
The voice I hear, it’s you I fear,
black heart, black mind, blank soul.

Black heart, black mind, blank soul.
Take me back, take me back.
Black heart, black mind, blank soul.
Take me back, take me back.
Track Name: Whimper
I’m so sick of this shit,
people wanna get hit.
Always fucking judged,
and you don’t even know me.
Always fucking whispering,
constant fucking whimpering.
I don’t give a single fuck,
we’re the ones here listening.

Don’t run your mouth,
or you’ll get hit with all the shit
that keeps on coming out,
coming out of it.
You’d better bite your tongue,
or else you won’t be here for long.
Talk shit, get hit,
that’s all you need to know of it.

Day in, day out,
you can’t even figure out,
all the shit thats coming back,
just to fucking get you.

Disfigured, go and crawl back home.
Talk shit, get hit, bitch.

Always fucking whispering,
constant fucking whimpering.
I don’t give a single fuck,
we’re the ones that are listening.
Track Name: Lifeless
Poisoned minds,
wander from what is true.
The message is sent,
and the public is used.
Constantly dependent
on that ones that could end it.
The light’s so close,
but we can’t get it.

No excuses, this time.
We’ve heard it all before,
we’ve heard it all before.
No excuses, this time.
All we are ever told
is what to live for.

Quiet, always listening.
Mindless, yet we have the key.
We all know how to listen,
but we simply can’t do it on our own.

Poisoned, to the point of death.
We’re all lifeless and mentally motionless.
Manipulated and abused,
all we know is how to be used.

Individuality is wiped away,
and no-one is given their fair say.
To be unique is to be blessed,
a sign that we have avoided conquest.

Unwillingly loyal to the powers that be.
Easily convinced,
yet we’re meant to be born free.

Constantly dependent,
on the ones that could end it.
We’re the ones,
we’re the ones that could end it.

Quiet, always listening.
Mindless, yet we have the key.
We all know how to listen,
but can we simply can’t,
do it on our own.

Poisoned, to the point of death.
We’re all lifeless and mentally motionless.
Manipulated and abused,
all we know is how to be used.

Unwillingly loyal to the powers that be.
Easily convinced,
yet we’re meant to be...
Track Name: Desperation
Fractures, in my mind,
some things just fall apart.
Oppression, of my thoughts,
I can’t live, I can’t breathe.
Desperation, infinite,
I’ve lost all control.
Destruction, of my mind,
possession by insanity.

My constant desperation
caused by inconsideration.
You’re always pushing me down.

Entertainment, that’s all I am to you,
your bullshit is driving me insane.
And when, karma comes around again,
you’ll get whats coming for you.

I am not a piece of meat,
alive for you to prod and beat,
I’m losing my mind thanks to you.
I’m done with your shit,
and now its time to pay for it,
I’m taking my stand.

Everything is just a game
compared to what I’ll do to you.

I’m just fucking entertainment,
that’s all I am to you.
your bullshit is driving me insane.
And when, karma comes around again,
you’ll get whats coming for you.

I am done with this bullshit,
come and see what I have
in store for you.
I promise I will make you realise
everything you put me through.

Constant desperation,
caused by inconsideration,
You’re always pushing me down.
Track Name: Wasted
My soul is gone,
and I am out of luck.
I’ve wasted away,
everything I had left.
Constant mistakes,
now I am bereft,
of fucking hope.

I took the wrong path,
for all the right reasons,
now I’m facing my own
fucking demons.
The choices I’ve made,
led to the elimination of all,
that I fucking love.

I look back and it makes me sick,
all of the shit I did to please you.
Now I’ve killed my own fucking soul,
and we’re finally through.

I hate everything that I’ve fucking done,
and now its time for me to pay the price.

Don’t fuck with me.
Track Name: Revolution (feat. Detlyn Raven)
When you close your eyes,
all I want you to see is,
your worst nightmares,
me standing there.
No soul, no life, no love.
No soul, no love.
Will we ever see change?

You wish you could take
the clothes off my back, yeah,
and put my life in the gutter,
and wash it down the drain.
One day,
you’ll realise you're just a weak man.
Why can’t you change?

All the small things,
with the power.
Behind you, behind you,
behind you.

You wish you could take
the clothes off my back, yeah,
and put my life in the gutter,
and wash it down the drain.
Today,
you’ll realise you’re just a dead man.
It’s to late to change.

We are the ones,
the ones who hold the power now.
We are the ones,
who’ll take your life with our hands.

So take a step back,
while we take back,
everything that’s ours.
Get on your knees and pray,
'cause we’re your gods now.

We’ll take your money,
take your power,
you’ll be left in the dark.
So take your outdated options,
they belong in the past,
fuck you, what?
We see straight through your lies,
so watch a generation unite.
Lets start a new revolution,
lets start this revolution now.

You can’t take what is ours.

We are the ones,
the ones who hold the power now.
We are the ones,
who’ll take your life with our hands.

So take a step back,
while we take back,
everything that’s ours.
Get on your knees and pray,
'cause we’re your gods now.
Track Name: Sorry
I’m sorry for,
the past twenty-one years of my life.
So sorry I couldn’t make you proud,
so sorry I couldn’t turn my life around.
It’s not your fault you tried your best,
I watched you lay your dreams to rest.
You gave up everything,
to carve a place for me.
I know I’m wasting my life away,
throwing away the sacrifices you’ve made.
It makes me sick,
it makes me fucking sick.

But you need to realise,
I’m still searching, still dreaming,
of finding hope to carve a better life,
a chance to give back for your sacrifice.
Don’t lose hope yet cause I’m not dead,
I’ll walk alone, fight 'till the end.
You told me never to give up,
you told me never to give in.

I’ll fight the demons in my head,
break down the barriers ahead,
stare through the faces looking down on me,
I’ll push past them.

I’ll fucking rise up to the top,
be proud to call myself a man,
and maybe when you stare into my eyes,
I’ll see you’re proud.

I’m sorry for,
the past twenty-one years of my life.
So sorry I couldn’t make you proud,
so sorry I couldn’t turn my life around.

It makes me sick,
it makes me fucking sick.
It makes me sick,
it makes me fucking sick.

Makes me sick.

I’m sorry for,
the past twenty-one years of my life.
So sorry I couldn’t make you proud,
so sorry I couldn’t turn my life around.
