1. IMPERIUM

Hear me now

Bearing down upon a path we choose
Chosen from the start living different rules
Existence something to cherish true
Will not succumb to doubts that I hold onto

Release the fear of my pain

In so much pain
Give me the will to fight
Every obstacle that I have inside

Release the fear and

Hear me now
Words I vow
No fucking regrets

Fuck these chains
No god damn slave
I will be different
I'll stand here defiantly
My middle finger raised
Fuck your prejudice

All my life always I've felt alone
Conditioned to believe that I'm always wrong
Only truth will help to set me free
My every weakness I must turn into strength

Every rage, every tear

Hate in so much hate
Never that pain will bind me
Ask of myself if I've the will to unwind

Every rage and tear

Hear me now
Words I vow
No fucking regrets

Fuck these chains
No god damn slave
I will be different
I'll stand here defiantly
My middle finger raised
Fuck your prejudice

Carved upon my stone I will go on
Patience, belief love will ascend

Just listen to it
Voice so true inside calling
To pick you up and march
March you on
Keep from falling
Let go your sorrow
Sun will shine, this I promise
Rising tomorrow - Rising!

Hear me now I'm taking back the control
Of my Life from societies hold
I vow no more will I be a slave
Rise to challenge the whole human race

My spirit you cannot break
And we won't lose!


2. BITE THE BULLET

I understand your every fear
Your every pain your every tear
With every struggle you conquer
Turn heart to steel and will to iron

You want more - You'll get it
Determined, ferocious
Grit down and bite the bullet
Dare to unbind - smash and redefine

The hate you feel is nothing more
Than love you feel to win this war
The battle that rages inside you
With bloodlust you must unchain your shackles

You want more - You'll get it
Determined, ferocious
Grit down and bite the bullet
Dare to unbind - smash and redefine

Lion heart never give in
Unsatisfy every weakness

You want more - You'll get it
Determined, ferocious
Grit down and bite the bullet
Dare to unbind - smash and redefine


3. LEFT UNFINISHED

Oh yeah !

Why was I born? Sometimes I wish I didn't know
Been times when I wish that I had just never been
Why did you have me or better yet why'd you leave?
So to the people that could fuck but then abandoned me

I'll give to this world what you couldn't give
Love the unwanted every child born discarded
Add to the flock the rejects you dumped on

I'll never forget life you disdain
So to the parents that bore me in this pain
With all those things you left unfinished
I'll never forget life you disdain
So to the parents that bore me in this pain
With all those things you left unfinished

You never could love me I'm glad that you never did
My parents that raised me had plenty of that to give
And for that I'll love them forever with all my heart
But to you don't let there be no mistake about it

Fuck you, you cocksucker fuck you, you whore
I'll live my life the opposite of what you are
Love will be my rock the rock that I stand on

I'll never forget life you disdain
So to the parents that bore me in this pain
With all those things you left unfinished
I'll never forget life you disdain
So to the parents that bore me in this pain
With all those things you left unfinished

Don't try to reach out to me don't try to call
The boy you created is dead for all you fucking know
You just pretend you've never heard or seen
The name Lawrence Mathew Cardine

I'll never forget life you disdain
So to the parents that bore me in this pain
With all those things you left unfinished
I'll never forget life you disdain
So to the parents that bore me in this pain
With all those things you left unfinished


4. ELEGY

Elegies are to be sung
Winds of armageddon come
Ignorance within your bliss
Soon you will atone for this
In your carcinogenic haze
Baneful of a newer age
Flowers of a different scent
Poisons of the earth's lament

A requiem
Earth belong not to you
Belong all we to her

Take another deeper breath
Inhale invisible death
Pollution fills the land and sky
Forever you justify
Take a deeper look and see
Nothing's left to future seeds
Icicles melt into blood
Ashes where there once was wood

A requiem
Earth belong not to you
Belong all we to her

Pain of life has pulled you under
Left you there to bleed and wonder
Open heart left torn asunder
Wrong the wrongs that you've been suffered
Kill we scream in roaring thunder
Destroy all, leave all things plundered

Acid rain cries her pain
Full bloom, a world gone insane
Her anger the flower
Plays God with all of our lives

A requiem
Earth belong not to you
Belong all we to her
A requiem
Earth belong not to you
Belong all we to her
A requiem
Earth belong not to you
Belong all we to her


5. IN THE PRESENCE OF MY ENEMIES

I never ask myself why injustice befell me
Accepted of the fact try and live a life of peace
I'm not a violent man but to those who'd threaten me
My enemy - for my family I'll show thee

Death I will fight you to
Wrath provoked you cannot bear
Our lives are not your toys
Mercy, not a drop to spare

You of destruction
Of hope's deconstruction - kills
Cause innocence is lost when
The blood of innocents - spills

I'm not a violent man again I wish to repeat
But for every human that takes away a child's innocence
Whether it by molest or by all wars pointlessness
Killer of life - corruptor of all that is pure

I want your nose to break
Shattered under clenched fist
Smash face to concrete
Taste the asphalt's gentle kiss

You of destruction
Of hope's deconstruction - kills
Cause innocence is lost when
The blood of innocents - spills

To those that are to blame destroyers of every dream
Breaking of hatred's wings mars' phoenix begins fading
To those that monger war claiming that this is to even scores
This mantra I invoke no longer this fear will I choke

There's no peace for the one who can't know peace
Your every breath it only lives to take

Someday the earth you will descend
Not a regret I'll harbor in
Tearless my eyes - flowerless my hands

And that day when your moment is fleeting
That thought keeps my heart beating

When they lower your casket down
Bitter the sweet within my mouth
Ender of life - corruptor of all that's pure

On Your Grave I Will Stand
On Your Grave I Will Stand

On Your Grave I Will Stand
On Your Grave

On Your Grave I Will Stand
On Your Grave I Will Stand
On Your Grave I Will Stand
On Your Grave I Will Stand

On Your Grave!


6. DAYS TURN BLUE TO GRAY

Thou have fathered son and daughter
Doth begat, yet raised not bother
Paralyzed your children's lives
Wither vines of family ties

Self-destruction
Make him function
Crayons and clay

Days turn blue to gray
Days turn blue to gray

Seventeen when family begin
Drinking, fighting, heroin
Unquenchable addictions call
Responsible to none above all

Self-destruction
Make him function
Crayons and clay

Days turn blue to gray
Days turn blue to gray

Lest I taste
Its sweet grapes
Glass to tongue
Across it tips
Cross my lips
Swallow his soul

Please won't you love me?
Please help me see
What did I do?
Did I hurt you?
And now that you're gone
Emptiness lives on
The guilt is all I feel
No closure

Father
Motherfucker
No closure

The strings of my heart
You pulled on endlessly
This twine is severed
In tragedy

Father
Mother
Destroyer
Destroy her

Your self-destruction
What made you feel alive
Your self-detruction
Of your children's lives

Lives!


7. VIM

Words of the righteous we will not bend
The odds keep stacking up against
Strengthen our self endurance
Break down the cycle of errors past
We have to face up to the truth
Relinquish every grudge or bruise

Every ounce of strength grasps one solid dream
Violent soul will be whole

We have to face up to it
For every second we're alive
Let our light shine

To our grave, we must pave
A path for us to rise from
Power surge, kills the urge
Life and death collide

Smash all the boundaries that hold us down
Hold on to everything that loves
Let go of anything that starves
People with envy will hold us down
Freedom is just a cut away
Nothing can pass our life away

Every ounce of strength grasps one solid dream
Violent soul will be whole

We have to face up to it
For every second we're alive
Let our light shine

To our grave, we must pave
A path for us to rise from
Power surge, kills the urge
Life and death collide

We take life's ebb and flow
Testament to the things we know
With the fight, we must roll
Strength will follow
Tooth and nail for the ground that we hold
Failures from the start but we still grow
Heads held high, rally for throne
Holding our own

Not just words we'll show you so

I can't remember
These doubts I must dismember
And trust in whole what we all know
Block out all the hatred
That the world spews
Heads put to the grindstone
Trust in the truth


8. SEASONS WITHER

The taste of avenging blood
Suffer horror she's withstood
Disgust, the core of our soul
The crime takes a new toll

Rapes the soul

Hear her pain
Listen to what she'd scream

I'm gonna see you bleeding
Face down in the dirt
I'm gonna give you back what
You've taken with hurt - you coward
I'm gonna spit right into your face

In grace you'll be no more

This scar makes her heart stronger
Your breath makes her days longer
Life gained through your dying eyes
Revenge life's bitter prize

Feel reprise

Hear her pain
Listen to what she'd scream

I'm gonna see you bleeding
Face down in the dirt
I'm gonna give you back what
You've taken with hurt - you coward
I'm gonna spit right into your face

In grace you'll be no more

The seasons wither away
The seasons wither away
The seasons wither away
The seasons wither away

And we pray you die
We pray you suffocate
In pain you writhe
This day we celebrate
This day we celebrate

Desecrate

This mind and body
This heart and soul
Will not be trampled
Will not crumble

You can't hurt me
Your power's control denied
And you can't rape me
That moment's effect has died

You're a fucking shell that's dead in my eyes

Dead!


9. ALL FALLS DOWN

Anticipating salivating Intoxicating how I've been waiting
To gently soak in your dream that's broken
Caress my hands around your throat
When I choke the last gasp of air out of you

I'll mesmerize you hypnotize you
Paralyze you my snake eyes blind you
My tenderest tickle, my gentlest prickle
The back of your neck I stab icicles

My sweetest grin will pull you in
Behind that grin a razor teeth smile
Under your bed inside your head
I am the monster in wait

Walk run I'm the fear you've become
Pray hope before it's your

Downfall and all falls down

I patronize you, victimize you
My false pretenses endear me to you
I'm psychopathic, psychosomatic
Believe everything you've heard about me

Ate you alive since you were a child
That's when the monster first appeared to you
So know my name what is my name?
My name is fear and I'm you

Walk run I'm the fear you've become
Pray hope before it's your

Downfall and all falls down

With faith I crawl
In sadness I fear what I've become
'Cause after all
I'm acting pretend my smile on
Before the fall
The pain washes over

Hold on - hold on
Survive - survive
This

Walk, run free the fear you've become
Fight back before it's your

Downfall, and all falls
Downfall, and all falls down


10. WIPE THE TEARS

Ask me how it feels to feel like you're a failure
When everything that's real burns the flame in anger
I've heard it all before I've felt some pain and more
More than you could ever dream more than it probably seems
I've sat with head in hand stressed by my demands
Stomach tied in knots alone I've sat and rot
Cause the pain from all these fears has built up all these years
I'll wipe away the tears - Wipe away the tears

Don't give in - don't give up
Don't give in - don't give up

Walk the streets dejected alone and left rejected
Time does not care and sometimes life ain't fair
My head begins to pound smashing bottles on the ground
I have lived amongst the garbage with those who rape and carnage
Had many a promise broken and broken some myself
The promise I have kept alive is keep my inner wealth
With my heart aimed at the world destiny I watch unfurl
I'll wipe away the tears - Wipe away the tears

Don't give in - don't give up
Don't give in - don't give up

Oppurtunities
Wasting life away
Choked upon its dust
Puked out in disgust

Let me tell you how it feels to feel like you're a failure
Been climbing out this gutter for what seems like it's forever
But one thing I must make clear the struggle of these years
Has made every scar the stronger my lust for life the longer
I will fight for what I love and I will fight for those I care
I will fight at anytime and I will fight anywhere
With my heart aimed at this world destiny I watch unfurl
And I'll wipe away the tears - Wipe away the tears

Don't give in - don't give up
Don't give in - don't give up


11. DESCEND THE SHADES OF NIGHT

The shades of night descend
The shades of night

Sitting in the empty black
The last slivers of dusk have passed
Accept the dawn to ease the fear
One day I will not be here
Death she comes and with her thread
Upon me ties a mask for dead
Its tears of blood begin to seep
And bleed the sky

The shades of night descend

Descend the shades of night
Death shines her golden light
Across a blackened sky
All our hate is a product of a world we created

The shades of night descend
The shades of night

Ashen clouds obscure my brain
Doubts begin to turn to shame
Insecureness tears at bliss
I hate me for this weakness
Faith drives me to carry on
And take the road less travelled on
Resentment swallowed means to drown
The poison down

The shades of night descend

Descend the shades of night
Death shines her golden light
Across a blackened sky
All our hate is a product of a world we created

Scream with me
Bleed with me
Seethe with me
Sing with me
Scream with me
Bleed with me
Seethe with me
Sing with me

Free me
Free me
Free me

Descend the shades of night
Death shines her golden light
Across a blackened sky
The shades of night descend

The shades of night descend!
