1. Deathstar

Walkin tall you stand up all alone
With hand and fist I stand up for my own
The only - thing you're gonna do is fall
So watch your shit you think you own it all

(not knowing I) got my grip on you
(it's time to show me)
What's up inside you that makes you click for

Hate - you'll never find a way to stop me
What makes you click for hate
You left me with no choice in comin
(watch how I blow through you)

I'll take the blame that's all you have to give
So keep your shame and hide it from the
Ones you lied to go wipe your face and start to crawl
And if you get up I'll be there and you'll (start falling)

(I) got my grip on you
(why don't you show me)
What's up inside you that makes you click for

Hate

(watch how I blow through you)
You can't stop me
(I will never fall)
You show me
Nothing at all (nothing at all)

I got my grip on you
(look on the inside)
Blame is all you have to give
(you never told me)
What's up inside you that makes you click for hate



2. Clueless

Scared to look ahead
Instead I fold my arms waiting
The train's arriving with the goodies I'm entitled to
All this time I never felt I got what I deserved
Oh what a shame (why me why me)

I never take a thing for granted
I'll never be a hypocrite
(what would you know)

Fly, watch you're falling sunset
I can't remember when I ever heard you say
Thank you for everything you gave I'm so grateful
(hang on) to your fallen sunset

Don't you see I'm talking can't you wait until I'm done
Hold on a second here's another one you haven't heard
You think you're owed the world well look at me
I'm owed it too (you're feeling sorry for yourself once again)

I never take a thing for granted
I'll never be a hypocrite
(can't stand to hear you)
Always taking things for granted
you're such a hypocrite
(what would you know)

Fly, watch you're falling sunset
I can't remember when I ever heard you say
Thank you for everything you gave I'm so grateful
(fly) watch you're falling sunset

Come away with me
I'll show you the way to happiness
Then is when you'll see
The peace that'll put your mind to rest
Come with me come with me
Ease your bad memories
You made your choice
you're so fucked up go

Fly, watch you're falling sunset
I can't remember when I ever heard you say
Thank you for everything you gave I'm so grateful
(hang on) to your falling sunset
(fly)



3. Driven

(stop the man)
Fom endin up with all the chips so he can't
(promse him an only chance)
To have the freedom that's been takin from me

(you - can - try - to - lift - your - head - no)
You fucked up with me now live with the truth
Find a reason to lie (try)

Seems like it hasn't been long - I've given
(so much how could you hide)
You're sick with all the guilt you're never - forgiven
(you try to wash it away - wash it away)

(ask again) why all the dreams I had
Are now left broken
(punished for a wounded past)
Afraid to wake and find reality breathin
(why - has - life - been - taken - from - me)
I fucked up and now I live with the truth
With no reason to lie (I)

Feel like it hasn't been long - I'm driven
(to keep myself alive)
You're sick with all the guilty you're never - forgiven
(you'll never wash it away - wash it away)

(How can you live with yourself)



4. Feed

I erased you
From my every waking memory
I replaced you
With a vision that you - won't see

Pity is a four letter word
And so is quit
(and so is left but I'm)

Right where you wanted me
Feed from the inside
Out of bitter sympathy
You want me wrong but I'm right

May I remind you
It doesn't take much time to call
Can I respect you
If a man was never there at all

Pity is a four letter word
And so is quit
(and so is left but I'm)

[CHORUS (Repeat)]
I replaced you with a vision that you - can't see

(Right where you wanted me)
Feed me from the inside
(Out of bitter sympathy)
You want me wrong but I'm



5. Suffer

Slip and give a fake
Let you feel a little stronger
My eyes wake
You think I'm rollin over
You wonder how I feel now that your under
You can't breathe can't hold it any longer
(I'll) I'll make you (suffer)

Fear is your only reason
You never thought that you'd
See me in another season
Now I feel the need to make you
(suffer)

Now you see the face of the one that took you over
You can't believe how it ended up you stumble
I'll never let you have a chance now you wonder
You can't breathe (can't hold it any longer)

Fear is your only reason
You never thought that you'd
See me in another season
Now I feel the need to make you
(suffer)

Fear is your only reason
You never thought that you'd
See me in another season
Now I feel the need to make you (take it)

(think what you want I've always seen
The shade` of your color scheme
I cut through your bullshit talk
I stomp on your fucked up walk)

(think what you want I always knew)

Fear is your only reason
You never thought that you'd
See me in another season
Now I feel the need to make you suffer
Fear is your only reason
You never thought that you'd
See me in another season
Now I feel the need to make you
(suffer)



6. Beg to Differ

Slow down Slow down
I lived a life with no regrets till you came around
(your lost I'm found)
You had a hold on me
But now it's slippin away

You used me
Never would I thought you'd try to
Lie and deceive me
I'm sure you thought I'd be easy
(you had a chance but now there's nothing
That you can call your own)

Why does it feel like
I have been the only one
Who stopped and swam
(Up the river)
If everything you said to me was a lie then
I really think (that I beg to differ)

No time I'm gone
You had your chance now let me show you the way around
(your loss mine now)
I let you call it once
You'll never do it again

You fooled me
Once and then you should have figured
Now there's just one space
That you can fill but it's empty
(you'll never find a place that you can call your own now)

Why does it feel like
I have been the only one
Who stopped and swam
(Up the river)
If everything you said to me was a lie then
I really think (that I beg to differ)

I'll never understand
I'll never understand
I'll never understand
(I don't fuckin understand why)

You used me
Never would I thought you'd try to lie and deceive me
I'm sure you thought I'd be easy

Why does it feel like
I have been the only one
Who stopped and swam
(Up the river)
If everything you said to me was a lie then
I really think (that I beg to differ)
I'm gone



7. Under

Fallin' down, under the cracks and now I cannot make a sound
Forgive me if I ask for help I'm,
Crawling out, of the bottom where my every thought
My every thought is consuming
Gimmie some excuses (I need to know)

If I was under - could I see myself on the floor?
If I should trip inside my mind
Would I be under control of it all?

(gimmie time - gimme time - gimmie)

What you think will help me
My teeth chatterin with every thought
I need some prayers to be answered
(I - believe) I'll be choking on my mind soon
Why won't you help me?
(one more time I expect to get shit)

Gimmie some excuses (you don't give a fuck)

If I was under - could I see myself on the floor?
If I should trip inside my mind
Would I be under control of it all?
(Help me)
(Help me)

If I was under - could I see myself on the floor?
If I should trip inside my mind
Would I be under control of it all?
Control of it all:

(Help me)

(I under)



8. Story of Your Life

(express) what you think it is I wanna hear
(only - time) will tell if you will ever see (it my way)
I can bring you back if you can handle some
(rounhouse) kicks from your conscience
Sit back there's more to come
Can't you see it's not what you can it's
(the story of your life - walkin through it blind)
Never see the answers
Always expecting something
(the story of your life)
All the questions point to you
(respect) something that I'll never give to you
(you'll never learn) until you come to grips with me
(you're not the only) one who breathes the air here
For all to share
(fucked up) choke if you think I'm gonna take this lyin down
Step back slowly - there's no help for you here
(cause you're the only)
One who can get you through this its
CHORUS (Repeat) something you just don't understand
(no respect) (rejected) (no acceptance) (justice)



9. Confessions of Hatred

Impossible to reason with the thoughts in mind
To direct to forget about my pastimes
I assure you of one thing
This is something you'll never forget

In time I'm sure you'll understand
That the sound of the crack
The slap of my hand was only intended for one thing
The one thing I never had

Palms sweaty - thoughts dry
Hand fed by a broken mind
Hands shak'n - don't cry it'll all be over

And then you'll have the chance to see the hole inside
The painted picture of a wounded mind
I can never escape this
(you helped me create this hate)

(my - undying - addiction)
How were you the last to know
(you - brought - this - on - yourself)
Now you're the next in line to see
All that I've become
(confessions of hatred)

Responsible for bringing out my darkest side
I tried to hide what I feel but it's my time
To inflict all the damage
Some indescribable pain

Heart beating, last cry
Anticipating what I have in mind
Lick my lips an approach you
(with undeniable fucking hate)

(my - undying - addiction)
How were you the last to know
(you - brought - this - on - yourself)
Now you're the next in line to see
All that I've become
(confessions of hatred)

One day I'll become whole again
Till then I'll just remember
I thought you understood being misunderstood
How wrong was I to think you ever would?
One day I'll become whole again, whole again

(my undying addiction)
I never thought you'd be the last to know
(you brought this all on yourself now)
You will be the next in line to see
All that I've become
Victim till your last breath
All the hope is gone
(confessions of hatred)

(I'll show you pain)



10. Aggression

Sickening the things that I see
Can't stop my mind from slowly wandering
Dream'n again I think you're
With me but there is where the thinking ends

Sleep time, no longer
Looks like, it's over

Took your wrist and cut it open
And now it seems I'm (throwing you over the edge)
We had a gift no one had
You never thought I'd be (cutting you open again)

Sorry the pain seems endless
Lay still, I'll soon be done with you
Till then you're left to deal with torture
I'm sure in time you've gotten use to it

Constant, controller
Your life, is over
(I'm takin pride in my work as you bleed)

Took your wrist and cut it open
And now it seems I'm (throwing you over the edge)
We had a gift no one had
You never thought I'd be (cutting you open again)

I'm left to deal with my conscience
Forgive me now
I have to finish the shit I started
Not what I wanted

Took your wrist and cut it open
And now it seems I'm (throwing you over the edge)
We had a gift no one had
You never thought I'd be (cutting you open again)

Took your wrist and cut it open
And now it seems I'm (throwing you over the edge)
We had a gift no one had
You never thought I'd be (cutting you open again)



11. Burn

(rescue me) from this mistake I'm in
Who knows the path I'll land on
(i must be dreamin) in the end nothing but solitary moments
(comin down on me)

Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
(wash it away, release me)

(never free) I don't know what I want but I know
(i don't want this) a sleep of content I'm here
Again and always (intent on believ'n)

Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
I pray the day will come when you will see
What you took from me,
From where it all began, the way I used to be
Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
I pray the day will come when you will see
What you took from me,
From where it all began, the way I used to be
(wash it away - release me)

(i can't take this anymore )

I lied to myself, remembering the things said
Things you said to me, no answer for help
Empty promises were all I heard, never meant to be
Destroy me, control me, don't hold me, release me from your hands
Give me back the life you took and:

Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
I pray the day will come when you will see
What you took from me,
From where it all began, the way I used to be
Wash away the colors of the shame that you gave to me
So I can see again, so I can live again
I pray the day will come when you will see
What you took from me,
From where it all began, the way I used to be

I often wonder how it came to this again
I often wonder why it had to end
I often wonder how it came to this again
I often wonder why it had to end
Forgive you just the same
I often wonder how it came to this again
Never meant to be
I often wonder why it had to end
Forgive you all the same
I often wonder how it came to this again
Never meant to be
I often wonder why it had to end
Because of what you took from me



12. Alpha

(Just move) you never were there (when I needed you)
Where were you when I needed you
(So long) look me in the eyes when I'm talking to you
You see the whites now (turn around) walk away

(You can't help me) you never wanted too
(Soon I'll show you) what I mean cause

(I) don't need for you to rescue me
(From what) you believe is tearing me apart, you'll never
(Know) how it feels to be like me
(Fuck you) I relieve you of the duty that you gave (to yourself)

(Face down) in your own shit you look up at me
In your eyes is something like pity for me
(Reach) up from the bottom lend a helpless hand
(You volunteer to be) my true savior

(You can't help me) but if you wanted too
(I would show you) what I mean cause

(I) don't need for you to rescue me
(From what) you believe is tearing me apart, you'll never
(Know) do you see what I see
(Fuck you) I relieve you of the duty that you gave (to yourself)

(Face down)

(Just move) you never were there when needed you
(Face down) in your own shit you look up at me (you can't help me)

(I) don't need for you to rescue me
(From what) you believe is tearing me apart, you'll never
(Know) how it feels to be like me
(Fuck you) I relieve you of the duty that you gave (to yourself)

(Now go fuck yourself)
