Lyrics
1. .EXECUTE.

It appears that we have reached the edge,
That zenith where stimuli and comatose collide.
Forty years ago, the man proclaimed the age of the gross to be upon us, and even though the man was destroying our heritage and insulting our intelligence,
That era has become very real.
We labor for pleasure and abhor the guilt of pressure.
My generation will go down as the architects of contemporary disgust.
Some have fought and died.
Others have allowed the strong to be butchered for a price they themselves don't care about and will never understand.
I myself am beleaguered by the selfish face of a kind of man that is not mankind.
Distrust in information.
Fundamentalism of opinion.
Catastrophic boredom, and a fanatical devotion to that which does not matter.
Where is your glory now, people?
Where are your gods and politicians?
Where is your shame and salvation?
You rage for no reason because you have no reason.

What have you ever fought for ?
What have you ever bled for?
The face of tge earth is scarred with the walking dead.
The age of the gross is a living virus.
This is the future you have created.
This is the world you have set ablaze.
All you lies are coming true.
All freedom is lost.
All hope is gone.


2. GEMATRIA (THE KILLING NAME)

12/08/73 - That was all I got and now you got me

All I ever really wanted was to take the blame
I will go down in history and not down in flames
Meningitis / I will survive this / Dry Sockets and a Schizophrenic crisis
The time of the nine has begun
Get out of the way or you will suffer as one

This is so typical / Apocalyptical
Hanging on abysmal release / Jesus
I don't need this / Don't wanna be this
Icon in the making / My hands are f**king shaking

What if God doesn't care?
What if God doesn't care…

Remember / Surrender / The time is now
Continue / We're in you… and we will burn your cities down

America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left - nothing's real
Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down

What if god doesn't care?
What if god doesn't care?

America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left - nothing's real
Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down

Down…

We will burn your cities down

Feed the Hungry - Feed them shit
Feed them bones and politics
You wanna revolutionize?
Be specific and believe your eyes
Start a war in another backyard
And we'll destroy your house of cards
Give me a minute and I'll change your mind
Give me a bullet and I'll change your life

Remember / Surrender / The time is now
Continue / We're in you…
And we will burn your cities down

America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left - nothing's real
Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down

We will burn your cities down

America… what if "God" doesn't care?


3. SULFUR

My guilt and my shame always sell me short - always feel the same
And my face and my soul always wear me thin - always under control
But the longest hours you'll have in your life
Are the ones you sit through to know if you're right
So I'll wait, but I pray that I'm wrong
Because I think I know what's going on

So let me get this straight… the only will is my own
I do whatever I want and stay alone
All my decisions make it untouchable and tainted
I'm gonna suffer for the rest of my life
But I will always find a way to survive
I'm not a failure, but I know what it's like
I can take it or leave it… or die

Stay - You don't always know where you stand
'Til you know that you won't run away
There's something inside me that feels
Like breathing in Sulfur…

My life is undone - and I'm a sinner to most but a sage to some
And my gods are untrue - I'm probably wrong, but I'm better than you
And the longest hours I've had in my life
Were the ones I went through to know I was right
So I'm safe, but I'm a little outside
I'm gonna laugh when I'm buried alive

Stay - You don't always know where you stand
'Til you know that you won't run away
There's something inside me that feels
Like breathing in sulfur…

Like breathing in sulfur

Stay - You don't always know where you stand
'Til you know that you won't run away
There's something inside me that feels
Like breathing in sulfur…

Like breathing in sulfur


4. PSYCHOSOCIAL

I did my time, and I want out
so abusive,fate
It doesn't cut,
The soul is not so vibrant
The reckoning, the sickening
Back at you, subversion
Pseudo-sacred with scared perversion
Go drill your gasses,
Go dig your graves
Then fill your mouth
With all the money you will save
Sinking in, getting smaller again
Undone, it has begun
I'm not the only one

And the rain will kill us all,
Throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see,
The preservation of the martyr in me

Psychosocial, psychosocial, psychosocial
Psychosocial, psychosocial, psychosocial

Oh, there are cracks, in the road we lay
From where the devil fell
The secrets have gone mad!
This is nothing new,
But would we kill it all?
Fate was all we had
Who needs another mess?
We could start over
Just look me in the eyes
And say I'm wrong
Now there's only emptiness,
But a message to bring
I think we're done
I'm not the only one!

And the rain will kill us all,
Throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see,
The preservation of the martyr in me

Psychosocial, psychosocial, psychosocial
Psychosocial, psychosocial, psychosocial

The limits of the day!,
The limits of the day!,
The limits of the day!,
The limits of the day!!

Fake and defenseless lie,
(Psychosocial),
I tried to tell you first,
(Psychosocial),
Your hurtful lies are given out,
(Psychosocial),
Can't stop the killing idea,
(Psychosocial),
If it's hunting season,
(Psychosocial),
Is this what you want?,
(Psychosocial),
I'm not the only one!

And the rain will kill us all,
Throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see,
The preservation of the martyr in me

And the rain will kill us all,
Throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see,
The preservation of the martyr in me.

The limits of the day!,
The limits of the day!


5. DEAD MEMORIES

Sitting in the dark, I can't forget.
Even now, I realize the time I'll never get.
Another story of the bitter pills of fate.
I can't go back again.
I can't go back again…
But you asked me to love you and I did.
Traded my emotions for a contract to commit.
And when I got away, I only got so far.
The other me is dead.
I hear his voice inside my head…
We were never alive, and we won't be born again.
But I'll never survive with dead memories in my heart.
You told me to love you and I did.
Tied my soul into a knot and got me to submit.
So when I got away, I only kept my scars.
The other me is gone.
Now I don't know where I belong…
We were never alive, and we won't be born again.
But I'll never survive with dead memories in my heart.
Dead visions in your name.
Dead fingers in my veins.
Dead memories in my heart…


6. VENDETTA

I know my uses / I have my pride / But my heart is still untamed
I learned my lessons / I've conquered Death / I go on and I'm unashamed
I'll paint your bones to match my eyes / They're the darkest I have ever seen
Until I'm lucid, I can't be told
I know my voices / They tell me to believe

Another f**king accident out of control / All the attitudes will never change
My Imitations are leading the way
I can't accept that I still don't find this strange

In light of my ability to feel denial
I walk away from everything with just a smile
The agony of coming home has gone away
It's everywhere / It's everyone / It's every day

Are you ready for the time of your life

I beg your pardon / I'm out of the way / A new conspiracy has taken my place
So over and over, I smell the decay
Believe what you want to - The cycle stays the same

In light of my ability to undermine
I walk away from apathy - I'm feeling fine
The agony of cynicism beckons me
It's everywhere / It's everyone / It's everything

Are you ready for the time of your life

Let's - pretend - we're not at the end
Pretend - that we have nothing left

Are you ready for the time of your life

Let's - pretend - we're not at the end
Pretend - that we have nothing left


7. BUTCHER'S HOOK

Contrite - commercial - arrogance - leprosy
Consume the bitch - the fucker - mindless - like a child
For pity's sake - I've had all that I can take
We try - but in the end we'll see
There are no more codes
Only who is shit
And who's still free
I was gonna change the world
With honor and aggression
No one listened - no one cared
All they saw was misdirection

Go ahead and disagree
I'm giving up again

I don't want you anymore
I don't need you anymore
Fingerprint of God
Your new religions covet
This vessel wasn't built to last
But I will live forever
You'll never have to say surrender
Because you're so part of it
My total honesty has no place for tomorrow
Guilty pleasures give me pain
Tell my people I can't follow

Go ahead and disagree
I'm giving up again

You'll never censor me
You'd better cherish me
My reason has a voice
Freedom's gone but we'll always have a choice
My present future tense
It doesn't make much sense
I'm coming after you
Fuck you all I'm the only point of view

Violence and dollar signs
From http://6lyrics.com
Another processed piece of shit
You hide your fault in diamonds and give away the only
Cost - you can't delay the inevitable
Lost - don't understand the incredible path
I'm losing ground - but I won't care when I go down

Go ahead and disagree
I'm giving up again

I'm giving up again


8. GEHENNA

Do you believe? Do you fade like a dream?
Let me hear you breathe
Let me watch as you sleep
The sparrow's eyes… promises shift into judgments
I cannot deny that you were designed for my punishments

The blood and the body - Control the cut so it's seamless
Show me your heart - Show me the way to complete this
Tethered / to a scene I / treasure / can you help me?
I / sever/ God it's perfect, it's / never / really perfect
Now… I can finally be myself
Cuz I don't want to be myself

Free my severed heart, give me you - I want it
(I don't want to be myself)

I cannot maintain a semblance of normal anymore
I'd rather feel pain than try to fit in with you anymore
I'll throw it all away, like everybody else
I can finally be myself
Cuz I don't want to be myself

Free my severed heart, give me you - I want it
(I don't want to be myself)


9. THE COLD BLACK

Mother nature is a coward (Mother nature is a whore)
No more presence / No more power (I pray for death, by the hour)
Cut another smile into me (into me is all you are)
My artifice won't recognize me (you won't find me)… anymore

Post-traumatic war machines / The pessimists still won't believe
Throw away my past mistakes / It's all I can to feel
Let my weapons be you children / Let my armies be your damned
Try to suffer on in silence / Try to stop me if you can

Pneumatic destroyer - pathetic seducer
Distortion sufficient
Some day - one day - we'll live our lives again

My ghosts have found their way back home
I have every right to kill my own
I am something now that never could exist
My anguish conquers all / Pay the price and watch me fall
My only key is broken - My broken key is only… me

Pneumatic destroyer - pathetic seducer
Distortion sufficient
Some day - one day - we'll live our lives again

You utter waste of tired flesh - It doesn't matter if you can't progress
Even now they still create me - Give me your ignorance / Irritate me
I am made of the same debris - You want it all but you didn't want me
Hypocrite with no real use - I'm alive: what's your excuse?

Pneumatic destroyer - pathetic seducer
Distortion sufficient
Some day - one day - we'll live our lives again
Pneumatic destroyer - pathetic seducer
Distortion sufficient
Some day - one day - we'll live our lives again

We'll live our lives again


10. WHEREIN LIES CONTINUE

Thou shalt not
Kill your fathers - Destroy another life
Question everything we clung to for years
Live forever - Design a better death
Confuse a liar with a savior from fear
Create a myth and separate the chosen ones
Adolescent independence / Dominion
I only wanna believe in f**kin' anything
But now my conscience is contradicting everything

The ending's the same / the world will not change
The answer is clear…

Tell your mothers they have no sons or daughters
Blame yourselves because your children are mine
We are orphans, but we are not forgotten
And we will find a way to save us this time
We can run, but we are tired of running
We're dropping seconds in a glass 'til we die
We only wanna believe in f**kin' everything
But we're alive and we're not accepting anything

The ending's the same / the world will not change
The answer is clear… annihilation

I won't control or restrain things I do not understand
Now I realize I'm stronger better
They gave to me now i give to you the means to burn the thoughts I had
Now I realize I'm stronger better more

We have to save ourselves

I will never become another piece
Inside the paralytic construct I hate
Live Forever? Well, I would rather die
At least I'd know I wasn't theirs to create
This is yours, but you had better choose
Before they take away your right to decide
I guess I'll never believe in f**kin' anything
But my solace is I can handle everything

The ending's the same / the world will not change
The answer is clear… obliteration

I won't control or restrain things I do not understand
Now I realize I'm stronger better
They gave to me now I give to you the means to burn the thoughts I had
Now I realize I'm stronger better
I won't control or restrain things I do not understand
Now I realize I'm stronger better
They gave to me now I give to you the means to burn the thoughts I had
Now I realize I'm stronger better
More

We have to save ourselves


11. SNUFF

Bury all your secrets in my skin
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again…

So if you love me, let me go. And run away before I know.
My heart is just too dark to care. I can't destroy what isn't there.
Deliver me into my fate - If I'm alone I cannot hate
I don't deserve to have you…
My smile was taken long ago / If I can change I hope I never know

I still press your letters to my lips
And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss
I couldn't face a life without your light
But all of that was ripped apart… when you refused to fight

So save your breath, I will not hear. I think I made it very clear.
You couldn't hate enough to love. Is that supposed to be enough?
I only wish you weren't my friend. Then I could hurt you in the end.
I never claimed to be a saint…
My own was banished long ago / It took the death of hope to let you go

So break yourself against my stones
And spit your pity in my soul
You never needed any help
You sold me out to save yourself
And I won't listen to your shame
You ran away - You're all the same
Angels lie to keep control…
My love was punished long ago
If you still care, don't ever let me know
If you still care, don't ever let me know…


12. ALL HOPE IS GONE

The state of the nation - violation!
A broken promise is as good as a lie.
The hell is humongous, the devil's among us
And we will burn because we won't unite!

We won't witness anymore freedom.
Where is anybody? Do we need 'em?"
I would rather fight,
Than let another die.
We're the problem,
But we're also the solution.
All hope is gone!!!

If you want you cannot take it from me.
If you think you can, you still don't know me.
Let me tell you, when I said it, I meant it
And I will always have the right to defend it.

Fifty seconds, a hundred murders.
The bill of rights is a bill of sale.
What will you do when the war is over?
What will you do when your systems fail!?

[Chorus]
We have made the presence -obsolete.
What do you want?
What do you need?
We'll find a way,
When all hope is gone!
We've seen the fall of the elite.
Bury your life,
Take your disease.
We'll end the world,
When all hope is gone!

[chorus]

The wretched are the wounded,
The hungry starved to death.
At a place where no-one goes,
The air itself is a final breathe.
So discontinue,
The antisceptic cash charade.
As the cry of justice comes,
Our malignant fire fades.

I am the reason your future suffers.
I am the hatred you won't embrace.
I am the worm of a pure distinction.
I am the remedy, spit in my face!
All your lies and wars are out-dated.
All your subjects are dulling mind games.
I can rattle off a million other reasons why
But doesn't matter when the only thing we love will die.

[chorus] (x2)



13. CHILD OF THE BURNING TIME

Child of burning time
The child of burning time

My only consolation is all lies
The apex of my consequence is dying here tonight
Winter has returned and it always looks like rain
I cant remember anything...anything
Inside the absolution is to come
And appetites are bittersweet I think I'm coming home
A chance to give up Avarice has marked my one regret
The child of burning time has gone, he hasn't come back, he hasn't come back yet

Before I tell my story please consider who I am
I missed my window years ago, I'm doing all I can
A tragedy is commonplace but in the end they go away
A skin is still the only stain I'm left to wear in shame
And I cut my need into my heart, I tear it all apart
I beg you burn me away, I won't become your hero just to fight the life I saved
Burn me away, I won't give up tommorow just to lose it all today

I burn away
I burn away
I burn away
I burn away

My isolation is my course
The effect it has on life itself is a cancer on its source
I rue the moments spent between the fetish and the flame
Until this war is over I won't ever lose my rage

And I cut my need into my soul, I guess I'll never know
I beg you burn me away, I won't become your hero just to fight the life I saved
Burn me away, I won't give up tommorow just to lose it all today

Burn me away, I wont become your hero just to fight the life I saved
Burn me away, I wont give up tommorow just to lose it all, lose it all today


14. TIL WE DIE

Our friends are all hurting from moments and regrets and charity laced with a lie.
Still we keep hoping, to fix all the defects and strengthen these seminal times.
We go on together for better or worse, our history is to real to hate.
Now and forever we stay until morning, and promise to fight for our fate.

Til we die
Til we die

The start of a journey is every bit worth it, I cant let you down anymore.
The sky is still clearing, we're never afraid and the consciences opens the door.
I never stopped trying, I never stopped feeling like family is much more than blood.
Don't go on without me, the piece that I represent compliments each and everyone.

Til we die
Til we die

We wont be forgotten we'll never give in.
This war we've achieved has allowed us to win.

Til we die
Til we die

My last true confession will open your eyes.
I've never known trust like the night.
Let it be spoken, let it be screamed, they'll never ever take us alive.

Til we die
Til we die

We wont be forgotten we'll never give in.
This war we've achieved has allowed us to win.

Carry on
Carry on

(We'll never be broken, we wont be denied.)
(Our war is the present we need to deny.)
(We'll never be broken, we wont be denied.)
(Our war is the present we need to deny.)

Til we die
Til we die

We wont be forgotten we'll never give in.
This war we've achieved has allowed us to win.

Carry on
Carry on

We'll never be broken, we wont be denied, our war is the present we need to deny.

Til we die
Til We die

We wont be forgotten we'll never give in
This war we've achieved has allowed us to win

Til we die
Til we die

We'll never be broken, we wont be denied, our war is the present we need to deny.


15. VERMILLION PT.2 (BlOODSTONE MIX)

She seemed dressed in all of me, stretched across my shame.
All the torment and the pain
Leaked through and covered me
I'd do anything to have her to myself
Just to have her for myself
Now I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do when she makes me sad.

She is everything to me
The unrequited dream
A song that no one sings
The unattainable, Shes a myth that I have to believe in
All I need to make it real is one more reason
I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do when she makes me sad.

But I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me

A catch in my throat choke
Torn into pieces
I won't, no !
I don't wanna be this...

But I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me

She isn't real
I can't make her real
She isn't real
I can't make her real
