Lyrics


1. DEAD THRONE

What you hold dear is a false account
What you hold dear offers no salvation
Trust in that I’m not right for this
Know that I’m not the one to hold you up
I can’t hold you
I can’t hold you

Dead throne, we’ve put the world up onto a dead throne
Dead throne, we’ve put the world up onto a dead throne

She will slip... slip away
You will see your downfall

Dead throne, we’ve put the world up onto a dead throne
Dead throne, we’ve put the world onto a dead throne

I am guilty, I have fallen
There are things that have come between you and me
I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry
Let all be put to shame who serve carved images

We’ve put the world on a dead throne
We’ve put the world on a dead throne.


2. UNTIDALED

Back for the fourth time around and still meaning every word
Never more honest, always too tired
Drowning in the pages I’ve planned
Provoke, destroy
I could be the lost cause, for I am dead poetry
In this reflection, we are perfect disorder

Bring back balance, bring restoration
I saw the waves again, I felt the impact
I saw the waves again, I watched the current sway us
Bring back balance, bring restoration

Go!

Lost in the clouds and my heart is sleeping
Within the tide, although my eyes are dying

Back for the fourth time around and still meaning every word
Never more blatant, always too thoughtful

If I could change things, I’d change myself...

Time to be joyful in no consistency
Faith can be our only regularity
Time to be joyful in no monotony
There are no final goodbyes, this is our certainty

Bring back balance, bring restoration
I saw the waves again, I felt the impact
I saw the waves again, I watched the current sway us
Bring back balance, bring restoration

And just like that my life ceased to be

If I could change things, I’d change myself
Sunk to the bottom of a deaf, lifeless world.


3. ESCAPE

There’s no time. If your decisions include regret, then it’s already too late. There’s no time.

Oh my God, they’re everywhere... God...

As clumsy as these beasts may be, their mass numbers make up for slow speeds.
Now is when you exert all of your energy.

Don’t bother screaming, don’t bother crying, ignore all hope of mercy.
Don’t bother screaming, don’t bother crying, ignore all hope of mercy.

There’s no time. If your decisions include regret, then it’s already too late.
There’s no time for even the slightest bit of remorse.

Try to contain every ounce of sorrow, our hearts have no room for this.
I am made of anger. I am made of anger.

There’s a proportion to be met between escape and defense.
Now is when you exert all of your energy.

Don’t bother screaming, don’t bother crying, ignore all hope of mercy.
Don’t bother screaming, don’t bother crying, ignore all hope of mercy.

There’s no time. If your decisions include regret, then it’s already too late.


4. SASSAFRAS

This is the faith.
This is the faith complex.
Where all it takes is another step,
So we can then step again.

It's not all about the numbers.
It is not all about the numbers.

This is the faith.
This is the faith complex.
Try not to write another disappointing letter to integrity.

Only go faster, when you've stopped and thought.
Only go slower, when you've learned of wisdom.

Everything is a question of good will.
But we're too busy delivering answers of arrogance.

Isn't it funny how one's compassion diminishes when his or her own perils rise?
Perils rise.
Perils rise.

It's not all about the numbers
It is not all about the numbers

What should we ask for?
Who should we look to?
If all we know is burning bridges
Don't speak to me like I'm a stranger.
Turn your thoughts to the roots,
As we've all been caught up in the branches.
With roots above and branches below.

Don't run if you don't know your walk.
This is the faith complex.
Don't run if you don't know your walk.
This is the faith complex.
This is a memoir to friends persisting.
This is the faith complex.


5. BORN TO LOSE

Blessed be those who have no idols
Invoke holy honor, sanctify the patient
I don't see the world the same
I'm no one's hero so just forget my name

I abhor you
With every foolish thing that you say

None of it is worth the time
Another meaningless war

You don't know what you need
We're all so back and forth, nothing is as it seems
You don't know what you need
We make the same mistakes, we've ruined everything

What is it this time ? What must you call holy ?
This is your lifeline, nothing is at it seems
If I were you I'd give it up
I'd give it up ! I'd give it up !
If I were you I'd care
I'm born to lose with a noose around my neck
World be damned and move forward

I abhor you
With every selfish thing that you say

None of it is the worth the time

You don't know what you need
We're all so back and forth, nothing is as it seems
You don't know what you need
We make the same mistakes, we've ruined everything

Born to lose
Born to lose with a noose around my neck.


6. MAMMOTH

I won’t let this ruin me

My orchestra, my indecision
It all comes back full circle
From grace to all my hate
I never meant to hurt anyone
I came for peace, and for great reason
There is no solace, there’s no alleviation
In all our money, or within her golden teeth

Is this it ? Is this how it goes ?
I am the wretched one, I am the beggar’s hands
It comes back full circle
I cannot help but feel nothing

Pick it up !
Such a bitter friend, change can be
Remind me God, refresh what’s turned to grey
Oh my intentions, you vanish with the wind

Is this it ? Is this how it goes ?
I am the wretched one, I am the harlot’s bones
It comes back full circle
I cannot help but care no more
Is this it ? Is this how it goes ?
It all comes back full circle
It comes back full circle
I cannot help but feel nothing

All that you know...
I am all that you know

He had a vision as to what comes next
So disregard this unholy place.


7. KANSAS

It is though God by command has withdrawn every other throne.
And God is saying, "No. These people will deal with me alone.


8. HEY JOHN, WHAT'S YOUR NAME AGAIN?

The concept of fashion is the one to blame: painting the portrait of conviction-less existence.
Well, it must be difficult being so gorgeous.
Claiming to be the kings and queens but it's all of nothing.
This shall pass.
Megalomania.
Congratulations on mutilation for a life.
I'm going to hope for you, I'm going to pray for you amongst the reckless and the black.
Salvation lies within.
My time is yours my friend.
We all find ourselves so horribly weak.
(Oh God,) here's an offering.


9. VENGEANCE

You are a sickness : my only sincere plague
Is this what you’ve worked for?
Running your false empire to the ground
What is this substance that made your very own morals change?

It’s gone a little too far to turn back now
It’s gone a little too far to turn back
Always running I am the outcast
Keep running, keep running away

On to the next one, how can you have no shame?
Gone is your reason, think of from where you came

God as my witness, there will be no love lost

This is my vengeance : from here on out it’s no regrets
You are my sickness : I gave it all my very best
This is my vengeance : from here on out it’s no regrets
You are my sickness : I gave it all my very best

It’s gone a little too far to turn back now
It’s gone a little too far to turn back
Always running I am the outcast
It’s gone a little too far to turn back now
It’s gone a little too far to turn back
Always running I am the outcast
Keep running, keep running away

On to the next one, driven by what you gain
Broken honor, you came and you went

We’re just another crack in the wall
Here with no love lost.


10. OUTNUMBERED

We are outnumbered... The virus has completely devastated over 150 of the world’s major regions and is spreading rapidly. At this point in time we know of only one method of killing the creatures: destroy the brain. Beyond the guard of any loved ones who may have recently been in any sort of contact could be infected. And if you find yourself out in a threatening position, please do not hesitate to act. Again, this is not a test. This is not a joke. We as a species are overwhelmed. We are outnumbered!

Standing at accuracy’s demise we have reached the new world wasteland.
Population converted: One by one (one by one), thousands upon thousands.
Like scavengers on waste, like vultures on the sick, zombies outnumber the living.
We are the outnumbered. We are the outnumbered.

Find your post, find your shelter in hopes of outliving the undead.
Build your walls, maintain protection with ambitions of beating the odds.
Find your post, find your shelter in hopes of outliving the undead.
Build your walls, maintain protection with ambitions of beating the odds.

In a sea of stinking rot, in a place where living humans are no longer the hunters,
all the money in the world won’t satisfy the enemy.... Hunted. Hunted. Hunted. Hunted.

Standing at accuracy’s demise we have reached the new world wasteland. Go...
Mankind is the losing faction; retreat is eternally hopeless.

Find your post, find your shelter in hopes of outliving the undead.
Build your walls, maintain protection with ambitions of beating the odds.
Find your post, find your shelter in hopes of outliving the undead.
Build your walls, maintain protection.... ah ooh... ...with ambitions of beating the odds.

We are the outnumbered.


11. ASSISTANT TO THE REGIONAL MANAGER

These writings are to those who have weeped.
These writings are to those who haven't looked deeply,
Enough into the correct resolution.
Wrong again but stronger now, we can face this.
Fight life with life.

All glory to the one in existence.
Bring upon your name, your grace, your everything.
Hold hands and stare into the circle.
What are we looking at?

Rumors and rumors and rumors.
Rumors and rumors and rumors.
Assembly: disintegration.
Rumors and rumors and rumors.

Perish, perish.
Perish, perish.

Tombstones serve as mirrors and the graves are infinite.
Take a look through the lens and through your eyes.
End the partitioning.
Wrong again but stronger now, we can face this.
Fight life with life.

Enemies,
We'll go for your throat.


12. DEZ MOINES

Fall to your knees (accomplishing nothing).
Fall to your knees only to exercise your schedule.
Abandon calendar.

What has come with such preaching is loneliness.
Profit: zero. Achievement: zero.
Forward can't be stopped,
It just goes to show that some words are useless.
It just goes to show that some words are useless.
Take all your medals, take all your ribbons,
Take all your awards, take them, take them back to the ground.

Our youth is lost; a product of the created circumstances.
All I can say is "maybe".
Maybe (maybe)
All I can say is maybe
This is what I've been expecting all along, all along.

Now's the time of weakness, now's the time of blood.
Perhaps even the whole-hearted had wished for this.
Now's the time of weakness, now's the time of blood, oh!
And still the time of lions.
Push everything. Force everything.

We've all sung of the end, but who truly understands it?
All along, All along.
Forward can't be stopped,
It just goes to show that some words are useless.
It just goes to show that some words are useless.
Take all your medals, take all your ribbons,
Take all your awards, take them back to the ground.
