Track Name: 'Modern'
A dream has been shattered
No rungs to climb up the ladder
We fall to our knees
Begging for the mercy of our kings
The ones overlooking our pleas

Now you see
The human soul is for sale and there's few who set the price
We float through streets lined with avarice
As we dream about
The price of existence

This is the Era of enlightenment but all that I see
Is those addicted to a substance worse than every casualty
That we
Will see
Perpetrated by those behind a badged I.D.

Inside the world, that I resent, why I struggle to hold against the ebb and flow
To break the mold
To free the sound
Inside my mind
the demon calls

The tables have turned
For wealth you monstrously yearn and hunger
The wolves lead the sheep to their doom
Just to learn
Easy profits for all

Gold to rule over life

Riddled and rotting amongst our strife
We immolate the world
No accountability
Burned now ashes
You've made this a barren realm
Track Name: The Judge
We face the torment of the outside world
Glaring in from on high
This is the new religion
For we are under the influence
And above your hypocrisy

We stare now at our sun's glowing rays
Under the cover of our shame

We have turned into selfish beasts
What will become of our amiability?

Struggling to break free from a web of lies
Too selfish
To change our ailed intent
No time to rewind
We feed on propaganda thrust before us
Force fed hate

Even as we see the signs
We press forward without regret
Hoping to escape from our hide
Despite the changes so clear

We remain blind to the me complex
Don't you see? We fall

Self sacrifice

See the fields ablaze
We burn it all

Our very livelihood
See the fields ablaze
We must rise above the fire and the flames
Triumphantly Will you exile
The only glint of light we've seen for ages
Revitalize the dream
Of one humanity
Above all else with unity
With unity

Stand beside me now
You will not dominate our will
We sow the seeds to break it down
Inside the ruins of this hell
Track Name: Cosmic Deformity
The subtlety
That kills the restful dream
Snapping us back to consciousness.
A re awakened state

How far will we go
Before the fire engulfs our entire world
I will have left you alone
But we must part our own ways to grow.

You'll harbor a hate for me
Consoled by your complacency
Decay with fever dreams
Boiling away your sanity

Resentment and hatred are
all things that stemmed from love
You’ll cry as the sky opens wide
Drowning you in this lost hope

Why would I consent to that life
We are too different.
And though I have loved you and
Cherished the time we spent

Now the change begins
My insides are scorching
Something is happening

A tainted blood
Corrupting and forming
The body and mind converge

Into a creature that is not me
But something that thirsts

To harm and to covet
Too tight to breathe
Constricting the airway

What's become of me
I'm Drifting again
Through cosmic deformity.

The subtlety that kills the restful dream
Snapping us back to consciousness.
A re awakened state

How far will we go
Before the fire engulfs our entire world

I will have left you alone
But we must part our own ways to grow.
You'll harbor a hate for me
Boiling away your sanity

Resentment and hatred are
all things that stemmed from love
You’ll cry as the sky opens wide
Drowning you in this lost hope
Track Name: Deviate
You think I’ll Keep my mouth shut?
Who are you kidding, yourself?
I'm indomitable and I can't keep my strength out.
This is mine. A kingdom founded on blood.
Rhythmic percussion.
This haunting exaction of our fears.

Sever ties behind an iron curtain.
A shroud that bars me from the outside world.
I find all These errors in perfection.
A giant raging infant.
Our main infraction is just not giving a fuck.

You place these needles between my fingers.
You tear our world astray.

We've lost all control of ourselves.
How will I stand? How will you live?
We’ve lost all control.

You think I’ll hold my tongue?
Stop speaking out.
There is no ending in sight.

It's a shame you now have to die.
Violence is all you understand.

Ignorant; overlook all you've learned.
We've lost all control or ourselves.
Bleeding from self-inflicted harm.
We've lost all control of ourselves.
We've lost all control of ourselves.
Track Name: Heqet
The reality we seek has become but a fever dream.
I’m sweating bullets and stress has taken ahold of me.
I stare blankly at this feeble existence; all the sheeple herd together.
They stand idly by. They've become institutionalized.
Just what I'm destined to be.
No future ahead of me.
I slip farther into this negativity.

Breaking the silence, the winds howl around me.
I’m beginning to lose the memory.
Of who or what I once was. The end of the me I knew is here.
It’s time to push forward.

By the standards of today,
Watching the lost children play,
I cannot bare the shame of these grievances.

The world, a product of a generation.
Blindly thinking they’re the epitome;
The omega.

Forward; A direction you refuse to go.
I lost the will to bleed and now I know
Why I face this titan now.
Your egotistic needs cease to grow.

Such a waste. you’re a disgrace of the world
A product of a generation blindly thinking they’re the epitome.
The Omega.

We will survive.
A fatal torment felt day to day. A brazier burning to light the way.
Follow before we stall.
Civilization falls. Behold the crumbling walls.
Don't you see the children running wild?
