And the ground will shake as I am driven mad As I want this life to come to an end I will stand here alone, abashed and affixed On a pondering moment that has led me to this A pondering moment that has led me to this No, there is no happy ending No end in sight I am the master of mind games That's what I do Just a victim of time and space until I see the truth Isolation is a self-defeating dream Only your demons can hear you scream The ground will shake As I am driven mad A foul split in good and bad I search for answers To the end Of this mind betwixt The chaos is out of order No cohesion whatsoever I tried to take my life It worked, but I was denied A banquet of consequences on a stormy sea Will I take life direction from another entity? I don’t give a fucking shit if the sun don’t shine upon my face I’ve stood my ground and realized my frightful fate I don’t fucking care if I reach the point of no return I’ve said my piece that we all get what we deserve
Scarecrow 04:37
Yin or Yang when the time is right A masquerade of sun and moonlight Driven by reciprocity The ruined joke of our society Your mind is set, but you lack all brains No trespassers on your terrain Tip the scale, cost-benefit A shiny crown for old king shit A stronghold with no defence The answer that makes no sense The nightmare that intervenes Within a lucid dream Letting go of an altruistic approach Bask in your glory All hail the mighty ego We are the outlaws With restricted, spineless posture Barbed wire persona Until we’re weathered and lost Our eyes are open but we just can’t see We shoot for stars that are out of reach We spin the silk of our own cocoons You do you, because I’m guilty too Senses fail as a bystander It’s the price we pay to feel secure Along the way we’ve lost our souls I’m no stranger, but your shoulder’s cold Evolution comes to a halt Pay your dues, it’s all your fault Climbing vines of irony An absent doubt, but we still have greed In this crowd you stand alone Reap what you sow, protect your own Stab the back of your only friend A grin, stitched-up, with means to an end
Tormentor 06:41
Brought upon this mortal life A future of undoing strife I've learned of all your arts But you know that this is my design Your blood type, an acquired taste And what I hear from inside your brain A trigger resting in the empty-handed I'm bound to sink my teeth Atrocity, my will has made For white trash tornado bait Bones in a bind Slaughtered in line A manhunt, I await Another victim, sacrificed To feed my lifeless rage This everlasting blood thirst that eats me I've only ever known The dreadful lives that I claim for my own I feed and serve from the ones burning on the inside I am the nerve that slowly bites at the mind Along the lines you draw I rest my eyes, hon It’s not your shell, it is your hell I am led into temptation Make way for me A captive set free No one will know This constant monstrosity Scorch your flesh to my liking The bloody aftermath of your demise Bite the tip off of your tongue This was my gain, but your surprise These souls are trophies, once I ingest With hungry eyes and perception in high-def I put on a morbid display to please the beast within me I present a meal for all The tormented are left devoured It’s all come down to this Quid pro quo, yes or no? I am the fox You are the rabbit This is my final killing Turn my back and disappear I hope the lambs stop screaming But it’s just routine from here Along the lines you’ve drawn I rested my eyes, hon It wasn’t your shell, it was your hell I was led into temptation I put on a morbid display To please the beast within me I present a meal for all The tormented are left devoured
The Reaper 04:26
Into the other realm I'll go To find you alive somehow Every move so profound You didn't even make a sound Walk the ashes of dead empires Stand amongst the gods, fulfill your desires Don't let me fall, you got me through it all Until your last dying breath Carry me with you unto death I'll slave to the Reaper to see you again I watched as he took you When you took your last breath All ties severed Never see you again Reincarnate, live again The parallel universe of evolution Don't let me fall, you got me through it all Until your last dying breath Our universe no longer aligns In a perfect world, you'd still be here You're always in my heart Shift through time, come home again Don't leave me here to die alone Black magic in a pet cemetary Reborn to reign and show them no mercy Don't let me fall, you got me through it all Until your last dying breath
Hounds of hell are on my trail Will I prevail or will I fail? Face your fears or face your death Your last breath, will, and testament Can't you read between the lines? This is where your problem lies! Your final destination has been set Rest in peace, lest we forget Sentenced to death, these chains around my wrists My mind erased, do I even exist? Walk through the shadows Search for the darkness inside Corrupt the weak and free your mind What was yours has been lost in time Burning bridges of the past My vision falls from grey to black Beneath the surface of it all You won't rise until you fall The problem lies within you Misfortune and greed that you’ve consumed Broken, hollow, dead inside Invisible wounds bared upon my mind Broken glass, I'm on the floor Over-dosed and self-absorbed Just can't get up, forget the war Take off the mask, you've washed ashore Drowning in an ocean of regret The tide has come, my days have been spent No more freedom, no more pain Nothing left but pure disdain
Lifeless frowns on all of these frail, familiar faces And micro armies of foul tempers and jagged shapes We repel the weakened minds And embrace the wild kind The dark artist will remain forever redefined I raise my fist to the silent screams that fill the air A modern symphony Electric ancient song This banded thrill is on display in forbidden fashion Mark my words You will never feel this rush As a negative refection Of one of us, one of us Eclipse of the mind Our madness of the method Fighting our way through, into the forgotten casket It’s just a matter of time We are only temporary The blood we shed will stain the pages of our long-lived story We face the world, all on our own We will not be overthrown
Lawn Care 04:29
I make an irrational decision To find the plot for victims growing from elegance and poison Will I be painting the roses red, Or making good use of the bloody chunks left over from the dead? Under the earth, you'll find rebirth Your fate is lying in the judgement of the dirt Lifeless and thriving in the heat Will you be garden-front or petty food for us to eat? Swine! You are the mulch Enriching spoiled soil As you reach for the sun A stench of death is wafting From a land of pollen haunting An act of cultivation Not made for everyone Flora produced from a constant tipping of the scale Gangrenous tint of an unearthly fog that will prevail A guarding fence to hide the clouded shame I feel within The plotted twist of circumstance and masterminded sin Under the moon, your sprout will bloom Your fate is lying in the judgement of a fool Crisis, the only life we breathe Will you harvest well or remain as a trophy plant for me? Stripping flesh, breaking bones Sorting out the pieces of the atoned Gather elements for fabrication Unnatural botanic operation One by one Under the sun, It's just begun Your fate is rotting with the filth that you’ve become Catastrophe will grow with me Will it be an endless cycle that is wrought with irony? Swine! You are the mulch Enriching spoiled soil As you reach for the sun A stench of death is wafting From a land of pollen haunting An act of cultivation One by one
Bloodlust 05:20
Financial freedom, what a joke Corrupt politicians wait for us to croak A world ruled by greed and hypocrisy It's no wonder I can't seem to breathe We're the ones you should be scared of We're the ones who have the right to choose Fight against them for what you want We're all living in a concrete jungle (Soon we'll all be fucking dead) Don't you see? You're out of time Fuck your bloodlust! Get out of line! Planet earth Shambles, ruins The end of the world Our anomaly Where is your “God”? Where is your wall? You built up your empire Just to watch it fall We're the ones who won't conform We're the ones who will break the norms ( Soon we'll all be fucking dead) We're the ones who won't let them win We're the ones who will rebuild this world (Soon we'll all be fucking dead)
You've burned all of your bridges The ashes will surround As the mountains you try to climb start crumbling to the ground Brainwashed by a regular Joe Your shattered past has scarred your soul Now you laugh in the face of death with a voice you can't control Your wild mind has led you astray With broken wings you try to fly away And as you crash to the middle of the Earth I introduce my grand rebirth I am the last sheep that stood in line I'm turning around to make this journey mine Torn seams will never mend Your planets won't realign Just breathe Your poison into me It'll help you find your inner peace Godspeed These trails you walk, they laugh at you You can hear it, but still you carry through This is my absolution This ends our convolution I'm biting off your serpent tongue That's it, that's all, I'm fucking done! Don't let me get inside your head I'll feast on your heart in the end Your tears are bittersweet This mind is not what I make it seem Your walk of shame won't set you free This chapter's closing in on you The best-selling book you misconstrued The colour's fading in your lens This war that you fight will never come to an end Just breathe Your poison into me It'll help you find your inner peace Godspeed This mind is not what I make it seem Your walk of shame won't set you free
I shake my head and comprehend the tension in the air With our devil-may-care attitude and violent nature We will make it rain A storm, foreboding Black as the night We are in full swing Trapped in a systematic web of rivalries A world made of love and peace is a world of make-believe This free-for-all, this global quarrel Our fateful mission is a man-made downfall Laying blame and manipulating those who cross the line What a pity for those less fortunate, what a time to be alive Antagonize, declare, and engage our enemies All oppose and death will be a certainty I listen close as all of the bloodshed splatters on the ground For money, land, power, and the praise of different Gods Your time has come You will be done Delivered into evil As you’re led into temptation “Lead us not into temptation Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done” Behold! The Lord of chaos With the promise of devastation I will leave you in plastic and rust At the dawn of repercussion With the flicker of an exit sign Silence falls upon the sirens Let the carnage manifest I am judgement, I am death I watch as giant mushrooms grow on water, sky and land Behind the science is the loyal shadow of a man With fallacy, we paved the road to primal mockery Instinct is the answer, but reason questions me Instinct is the answer to this primal mockery Justice: it overthrows the age of man
