Track Name: Requiem
[Verse 1]
We the men of the abandoned few
Have found our solace
Drunk on seduction of the dying whore
Our lust and desire is not a crisis

We made it easy to use and discard
What will be made of us when our bones turn to dust?

[Chorus]
No one can control us, design me
These shackles are broken
We will still remain

[Verse 2]
We wear ours scars
For all to see!
The sufferance we endure
The slings and arrows will leave their mark

Break free from your chains
Wear your scars with pride
Show them all you’re not afraid

Your Requiem!

[Chorus]
No one can control us, design me
The shackles are broken
We will still remain

Still remain
Track Name: The Sacrifice
[Verse 1]
Darkness surrounds me, a lost endeavour
A devotion paid to give us enlightened truths
The censored picture, covered in black
Forces us to continue digging, exploring

Searching, I will break these shackles
Freedom, from these metal binds

[Chorus]
I’m waiting, for visions true
I’m waiting, to drop the noose
I’m waiting, to end these lies
For my sacrifice

[Verse 2]
Break these forces across the neck of all the slain
There’s nothing left but sadness, no one left to blame
We forfeit the soul of man to hide in shadows

Shadows, fighting for humanity
Hoping, for a better world

[Chorus]
I’m waiting, for visions true
I’m waiting, to drop the noose
I’m waiting, to end these lies
For my sacrifice

[Chorus]
I’m waiting, for visions true
I’m waiting, to drop the noose
I’m waiting, to end these lies
For my sacrifice

What the fuck are we dying for?
What’s it all for?
Track Name: Severance
[Verse 1]
The unravelling thread
It sings in agony
The connection not quite severed
In pain, in pain

The tie that binds
Not quite broken
Damaged and howling
In pain, in pain

When will the bleeding stop?
When will the shredded flesh heal?
When will my soul feel whole again?
When will the agony end?

[Chorus]
Heal me, heal my connection
In pain, drift in sorrow
Beneath the scars
The damage reminds me
But I'll hold on with my last breath

[Verse 2]
A world of pain, a pain in motion
An endless search in the race of life
A wasted moment, torn asunder
A soul laid bare for viewing pleasure

I will not bow down
I will carry the world
I will not bow down
In pain, in pain

Is this the moment
When it all ends?
The separation of all ties
Just make it stop, let this tragedy end

[Pre-Chorus]
I’ve never felt this numbness
The darkness surrounding me
You broke your promise
And shattered me

[Chorus]
Heal me, heal my connection
In pain, drift in sorrow
Beneath the scars
The damage reminds me
But I'll hold on with my last breath

[Bridge]
My broken heart
It bleeds for you

I waited, for so long
To fill this void inside

[Chorus]
Heal me, heal my connection
In pain, drift in sorrow
Beneath the scars
The damage reminds me
But I'll hold on with my last breath
Track Name: The Solace of Tomorrow
[Verse 1]
Sink in your blade deep enough into my flesh
And watch as all life drains away
The eyes lose all focus, last breath expelled
Darkness consumes the light

Bring me back to life!

Scared of the wrongness, the evil in me
Half sick from the blurring lines
No consequence, no moral divide
The demon, deep inside

[Chorus]
The endless searching has made me so lonely
The solace of tomorrow
Brace for the day when I leave this all behind
All behind me

[Verse 2]
Concealed like the wolf among all the sheep
Looking for somewhere to hide
Biding my time while howling at night
At a moon stained in blood

What have I become? Are you worried?
Submissive people, fearing me

[Chorus]
The endless searching has made me so lonely
The solace of tomorrow
Brace for the day when I leave this all behind
All behind me

[Bridge]
I am waiting for tomorrow. I am waiting for tomorrow.

[Chorus]
The endless searching has made me so lonely
The solace of tomorrow
Brace for the day when I leave this all behind
All behind me
Track Name: Illusions
[Verse 1]
Take your swollen sense of worth
And give it to anyone
Who finds a worthless piece of shit
A treasure to hoard

Now bow your head and walk in shame
Reliving all the times when your dignity's left behind

How do you trust when your mind deceives?
Illusions ease the pain of your mediocrity

[Chorus]
You push, you pull
Hoping you make a change
The results are all the same
Love yourself. Self importance
That is our Illusion

[Verse 2]
Grief is forgotten
Your place on this plane
Nothing more, nothing more
Than the scum under my boot

Gone are your moments
Your glory at an end
Flee from your existence back to your sanctuary

Freedom! Failure!

How do you trust, when your mind deceives, Illusions ease the pain of your mediocrity.

[Bridge]
We search for an enemy but he is already inside us.
Narcissism and ego forbid us to hear the pleas.

[Chorus]
You push, you pull
Hoping you make a change
The results are all the same
Love yourself. Self importance
That is our Illusion
Track Name: Waiting For Destruction
[Verse 1]
We stand on the edge of time speechless at the destruction
An empty shell hollow to the core, we’re on the brink of annihilation
Sifting back through the debris, revealing no answers
We crawl to the end of time hoping for salvation

All is lost, there are no more goodbyes
The coffin full of your lover’s demise

[Chorus]
Plead to Heaven while death rains down
Relive your sins while I wear judgement’s crown
Test your strength as a man while you wait for destruction

[Verse 2]
Sulphur burns scarring lungs, black smoke caught up in your throat
Gasping for air but you only find the toxic waste corroding your life
Skin will boil and melt away, the mirror becomes an enemy
Your vanity wasted, like your face

No one will grieve, your presence not felt
The coffin buried beneath the heap

[Chorus]
Plead to Heaven while death rains down
Relive your sins while I wear judgement’s crown
Test your strength as a man while you wait for destruction

[Bridge 1]
As the seas turn red from blood of innocents
Souls torment all those who won’t repent
Charred remains litter the barren plains
The Earth is cleansed of man's decadence

Cleansed Earth of this decadence

[Bridge 2]
The plague has spread, humanity by name
The coffin empties its dreaded disease
All is lost, there are no more goodbyes
No one will grieve as your presence dies

The sky emits a blinding flare, counting down until nothing remains
Gather ‘round, I’ll take you where you’ll find relief from pain

Witness the end, this feeble spot, erased from records of time.

[Chorus]
Plead to Heaven while death rains down
Relive your sins while I wear judgement’s crown
Test your strength as a man while you wait for destruction
