The venom inside
Turned me into the enemy.
Turned into what I hate.
My apathy got the best of me.
Blood boiled and lost my way.

I never thought I'd be the one to blame.
Have to live with constant shame.
Everything that I put inside just to feel numb.

I tried to escape.
Push it away.
Tried to hide,
The venom inside.

This was nothing but moral abuse.
Guess I just needed something new.
What could I gain from solitude,
or acting like a fool?

I tried to escape.
Push it away.
Tried to hide,
The venom inside.

Disconnected. Apathetic.
It's so pathetic to be this frantic.
I needed help. I needed help.
Like methadone for an addict.

I tried to escape.
Push it away.
Tried to hide,
The venom inside.

. . .


Suspicion growing, a feeling I cannot control.
Communication, communication low.
The invasion is necessary.
The dangers are secondary.

This was never meant to be.
A lifetime of instability.
I guess I was always weak.
Someone please rescue me.

Frozen in time,
Can't control what's inside of me.
Frozen in time,
I left my soul behind.

I'm at the end of the line,
Trapped in my mind, empty and blind.
Frozen in time, can't control what's inside.

I see myself dying.
All these paranoid delusions frighten me.
Manipulating vitality.
An unspeakable evil latches onto agony.

Attacking my body, impurity spreading through me.
Like a parasite.
Desensitized to the world while the plagues controlling.
Like a fucking parasite.

The same demons keep haunting.
Sending their warning.
It's unrelenting.

Frozen in time.

This was never meant to be.
A lifetime of instability.
I guess I was always weak.
October; the leaves buried me.

Frozen in time,
Can't control what's inside of me.
Frozen in time,
I left my soul behind.

I'm at the end of the line,
Trapped in my mind, empty and blind.
Frozen in time, can't control what's inside.

. . .


There was a time I was afraid of getting close to you.
Your potency was quite threatening.
Fiber pure, touching scars.
Feels good to finally hold you.

It was my mistake for not trusting you.
It was my mistake. Well this is now.

I'm no longer afraid,
I'm coming alive.
And no one can take it away.
I'm coming alive.

Unbelievable force when you're close to my lips.
When feeling the intensity you give me.
I adore you, and always will.
Psychoactive and delicate.

It was my mistake for not trusting you.
It was my mistake. Well this is now.

I'm no longer afraid,
I'm coming alive.
And no one can take it away.
I'm coming alive.

You saved me from these nightmares.
You took control of me.
You saved me from this heartache,
And never judged me.

And now I'm coming alive.
I'm coming alive.
Alive.

. . .


Faceless, subhuman, shattered souls I feed.
Experimenting, dead eyes watching me.

Bow down. Sheep to the slaughter.
Bow down. Follow the creator.

Into the path of the unknown.
Where they must walk alone.

The unholy are lifeless.
Sunken eyes dripping black,
The secrets of the dead.

Hopeless, disgusting, pathetic human beings.
Annihilation of what you believe. Now you will,

Bow down. Sheep to the slaughter.
Bow down. Follow the creator.

Into the path of the unknown.
Where they must walk alone.

The unholy are lifeless.
Sunken eyes dripping black,
The secrets of the dead.

Take control of my everything,
Killing them systematically.
My power is growing.
Their blood is flowing.

The unholy are lifeless.
Sunken eyes dripping black,
The secrets of the dead.

They keep calling me back.

. . .


This might be the last time you ever see me.
But you can trust that I did my best.
As complex as all this seems,
It's much more than a test.

The sky is falling.
The end is here.
The final warning.
The sun disappears.

As my world is dying,
So far from home.
Been stranded in this empty abyss.
Darkness surrounds me; lifeless.

The sky is falling.
The end is here.
The final warning.
The sun disappears.

Existence.
Search for a new beginning.
Persistent.
Something always chasing me.

This demon's covered in scars.
Menacing.
Burnt by the sun, his flesh is charred.
Challenging.

Terrorizing, manipulating every single thought.
As he closes in my will must be strong,
Or he'll stab you in the fucking back.
I won't turn to dust.

The sky is falling.
The end is here.
The final warning.
The sun disappears.

. . .


Impending doom, can't escape.
Pitch black at the lake.
The snow is falling, can't escape.
The evil approaches, I can't save you.

These problems don't have solutions.
We're rotting inside this cell.
Our bodies are like a prison.
Only death will save us from this hell.

Jagged stairs leading nowhere.
The clock is staring at me.
Running away from the pain.
The evil approaches, no one to save me.

These problems don't have solutions.
We're rotting inside this cell.
Our bodies are like a prison.
Only death will save us from this hell.

Have you ever seen blood in the moonlight?
It appears quite black.
Have you ever seen spiders crawling on the grave?

The grave that gave us the fear of loneliness.
That turned us into hellions.
We're like slugs in the sun.
Tearing us apart.

These problems don't have solutions.
We're rotting inside this cell.
Our bodies are like a prison.
Only death will save us from this hell.

. . .


It's just another sleepless night.
The hunt is on.
Looking for anything to fill the void.
Make me feel alive.
Take me back to paradise.

Cuz I'm walking on broken glass.
I should know; good things never fucking last.
The reflections of a shattered past.
They keep me walking on broken glass.

A thousand eyes focus. Here is your god.
Which one will sacrifice their innocence tonight?
Don't think twice; take me back to paradise.

Cuz I'm walking on broken glass.
I should know; good things never fucking last.
The reflections of a shattered past.
They keep me walking on broken glass.

The nameless walking with their guide.
For a chance to meet their god.
And it just won't stop.

Can't describe this satisfaction.
Can't control the chain reaction.
I employ you to fulfill this greed.
Insensitive; on flesh I feed.
Welcome to my hell.

Make me feel alive, take me back to paradise.
Cuz I'm walking on broken glass.
I should know; good things never fucking last.
The reflections of a shattered past.
They keep me walking on broken glass.

. . .


I am the bastard son
The expendable one
War is in my blood
Rage is in my heart

The lone wolf inside me

No home, no family
Just wanted serenity
But you pushed me

The lone wolf inside me
Needs to be set free

One by one I’ll crush you all
Day by day destroy and dominate
Blood for blood

Rejected by society
The same one that created me
And I don’t care what you say anymore
I am no longer your slave

The lone wolf inside me
Has finally been set free

One by one I’ll crush you all
Day by day destroy and dominate
Blood for blood

. . .


A new day arises as the city sleeps.
No compromising, no promises to keep.

We stand on our own again.
The rain falls hard, revealing the memories.
Ten years gone.

The life we share doesn't mean anything,
if we don't try to survive.

Visions overloading, pulling me through time.
Back to the moment when I realized,
That our demise could have been caused by my hand.

Been through just about everything, but we're still here.
We still have so much to prove to ourselves.

The life we share doesn't mean anything,
if we don't try to survive.

There is so much left for us to do.
Will you join me again?
I know I haven't been reliable in the past.
You had a hard time figuring me out.

But I can promise you one thing.
This journey's taught me to stand strong.
Never again will I...

Surrender my fears.
Surrender my dreams.
Surrender my soul.
To the infection.

. . .

The Heart Of It All

[No lyrics]

. . .


I'll bring the terror; leave you trembling.
You might as well give up.
Like the chosen one, all my prophesies will come true.
I am the face of fear. You can't stop this rampage.

Revenge so sweet.
Satisfaction watching the defeated.
Something tells me you're never going to live through this.
So I'll keep haunting you until I get my revenge.

You used to be brilliant; now you're the victim.
You're just a broken soul. You are jaded and condescending.
Don't look at me; you're wretched and diseased.
And I saw it from the start.

Revenge so sweet.
Satisfaction watching the defeated.
Something tells me you're never going to live through this.
So I'll keep haunting you until I get my revenge.

Slowly I'm waiting.
Attacking and erasing you from me.
Can't pull me under; I'll do what it takes to ensure this.
You're ignorant and overconfident if you think I'll come back to you.

Revenge so sweet.
Satisfaction watching the defeated.
Something tells me you're never going to live through this.
So I'll keep haunting you until I get my revenge.
I'll get my fucking revenge.

. . .

Convictions

[No lyrics]

. . .


What the fuck am I doing here?
4000 miles away.
The night never comes.
It's too bright to escape into darkness.

It's been enough (????)
Now I have to deal with you.
Am I cursed? Every time I leave I'll (?) infected.

But this time it's going to be different.
I just know I'm going to go insane.
The feeling of claustrophobia's setting in.

So now I'm on the warpath.
Trawling from every lie that you said.
This could turn into a bloodbath.
Next time you feel my wrath.

So now I'm on the warpath.
Feeding off every word that you said.
This could turn into a bloodbath.
Next time you feel my wrath.

Too scared to say what I feel.
Too scared to walk away.
I've seen this face before.
Am I addicted to the damage you cause?

Just so happy, I can barely breathe.
I'm choking, and for what?
My disgracing (????)

I just know I can't trust anyone.
Is this paranoia or reality?
Throat closing tighter. Fuck this.

So now I'm on the warpath.
Trawling from every lie that you said.
This could turn into a bloodbath.
Next time you feel my wrath.

So now I'm on the warpath.
Feeding off every word that you said.
This could turn into a bloodbath.
Next time you feel my wrath.

I'm on the warpath.
Trawling from every lie that you said.
This could turn into a bloodbath.
Next time you feel my wrath.

So now I'm on the warpath.
Feeding off every word that you said.
This could turn into a bloodbath.
Next time you feel my wrath.
