01. Samsara
<p>Freedom is slavery<br /> War is peace<br /> Ignorance is Strength<br /> Existence is<br /> suffering</p>
02. Unrest
<p>I’ve walked these streets a thousand times, still this world never seemed colder<br /> Compromised a thousand times to the will of malicious minds<br /> Reality never hit so fucking hard<br /> Crushed by endless desperation, endless surrender<br /> Retrace the steps, retrace the steps<br /> Is this what I have become?<br /> Retrace the steps, retrace the steps<br /> What the fuck have I become?<br /> Security, illusion for the weak<br /> Refuge, sought in routine<br /> Another gear in their fucking machine<br /> See, you can win the rat race but you’re still nothing but a fucking rat<br /> So seek that crown, because in this kingdom of fools true ignorance reigns supreme<br /> I see this city for what it is<br /> Retrace the steps, retrace the steps<br /> A monument to the depths of human misery<br /> Retrace the steps [6x]<br /> What have we become?</p>
03. Sleepwalker
<p>Consumed<br /> I feel the rage growing inside me<br /> A fear I cannot contain<br /> At war with an enemy that does not rest who will never relent<br /> This city, these lifeless catacombs, our tombs they have become<br /> Buried alive at birth never to return<br /> Chained the masses, trapped and trained by vicious minds<br /> I let them tear away everything inside<br /> Strip away my humanity<br /> Fracture my identity<br /> Sacrifice my integrity<br /> Just bodies through the teeth of the combine<br /> Just bodies through the teeth of the combine<br /> At war with an enemy that does not rest who will never relent<br /> At war with an enemy that does not rest who will never relent<br /> Sleepwalk our lives away<br /> In search for shallow graves<br /> Sleepwalk our lives away<br /> Lost souls, lost<br /> Just bodies through the teeth of the combine. [x3]<br /> Just bodies through the teeth<br /> Consumed, do I feel the rage, growing inside me<br /> I will not contain<br /> I have come to question every truth I know<br /> Not one more step in the name of progress<br /> In the name of blind ambition<br /> Not one more step in the name of progress<br /> In the name of blind ambition<br /> How the fuck am I supposed to feel when everything I know lies broken at my feet?</p>
04. Wreckage
<p>I am the blackest soul<br /> The child of a loveless world<br /> The wreckage left in the wake of time<br /> I am the consequence of complete collapse<br /> I am the horror you created<br /> The mind fuck you instigated<br /> I am the seed of self-destruction, the bitter taste of life’s regret<br /> Flood my lungs<br /> Pull my teeth<br /> Cross my eyes until there’s nothing left<br /> There’s nothing left<br /> Casualties to the snares of modern life<br /> Anchored by avarice, there is no further left to sink<br /> I reside in my mind’s eye, yet see no truth in a world of lies<br /> I reside in my mind’s eye<br /> We are adrift in a world of lies<br /> Flood my lungs<br /> Pull my teeth<br /> Cross my eyes until there’s nothing left<br /> I am the blackest soul<br /> The child of a loveless world<br /> I am the consequence of complete collapse<br /> I am the blackest soul</p>
05. Deadweight
<p>This is survival<br /> This is my exile<br /> I find no solace<br /> I find no solace beneath a Godless sky<br /> Will I find shelter in the places the Sun could never find?<br /> Now behold the consequence, the aftermath of ignorance, shackled to my worthless neck<br /> Give me one reason to resist<br /> So I slip below<br /> I can’t resist the undertow<br /> I find no solace beneath a Godless sky<br /> Will I find shelter in the places the Sun could never find?<br /> Because everything’s turning black and I see no hope of turning back<br /> Cold terror grips my lungs, to let it in would be to accept defeat<br /> But what’s left to fight for?<br /> When I look inside, nothingness confronts me<br /> Vexed by the hands of time<br /> This is survival<br /> I against I<br /> What’s left inside?<br /> So I slip below<br /> I can’t resist the undertow<br /> I can’t resist<br /> No, I can feel the deadweight<br /> I can feel the deadweight of my soul dragging me from this world</p>
06. Alone
<p>Shifting light outlines my battered form<br /> Stranger to the world, alone in my abandonment<br /> A gaining army of white horses, stark warning before the icy front<br /> The deceiving calm betrays all signs of impeding change<br /> Evening tide what do you hide, damnation or salvation?<br /> As my skin breaks the blackened surface, the cold is rising, yer all embracing<br /> Darkness, erase this lonesome place from my every existence<br /> An angry sky bares the signs, a distant violence yet to break<br /> The ocean’s travellers cry forth across the waves<br /> Lightning cracks across a vast horizon, reaching out its hands towards an unsuspecting shore<br /> No light to guide<br /> No ties, no ties to bind<br /> Evening Tide what do you hide?<br /> To the years spent waiting on the winds of change, this is penance paid<br /> This is my penance paid, to the morning Sun, whose warmth never found this young man’s face<br /> Shifting light outlines my battered form<br /> Stranger to the world<br /> Alone<br /> Evening tide, what do you hide? Lightning cracks across a vast horizon, reaching out its hand towards an unsuspecting shore<br /> With a final effort I strike out across the swells, seeking only the answers, maybe horizons hold</p>
07. Pressures
<p>Their voices search for me through the darkness, yet I feel desire’s cold grip upon my heart no more<br /> My solitude<br /> My shield<br /> My armour<br /> Tested with full force<br /> I have seen the face of death and I choose not to accept its form<br /> I have seen the face of death<br /> An army of demons summoned forth, upon this endless night they swam<br /> The fire in their eyes, like new Suns shire through the abyss<br /> I taste the fear<br /> I see the weakness in their eyes<br /> They cannot hide as I devour all<br /> As the mountains crack and the oceans boil, a fury-tempered heart is forged<br /> Within the flames, this current of corruption will cease<br /> I taste the fear<br /> I see the weakness in their eyes<br /> They cannot hide as I devour all<br /> An army of demons summoned forth<br /> Upon this endless night they swarm<br /> The fire in their eyes, like new Suns shine trough the abyss<br /> I have seen the face of death<br /> I have seen the face of death and I choose not to accept its form<br /> My solitude<br /> My shield<br /> My armour<br /> Tested with full force<br /> Their voices search for me through the darkness, yet I feel desire’s cold grip upon my heart no more</p>
08. Deliver Me
<p>Deliver me<br /> From the darkest abyss, from the depths of eternal rest<br /> Grasping at the threads of sanity, only to watch them slip through my hands<br /> I see the light<br /> I see the end<br /> I see a frail hope, crushed by the weight of the world<br /> My will is broken<br /> Sinking, always sinking<br /> The sands of time forever slipping<br /> Clawing at the emptiness, but a ghost I reach towards the end<br /> Lost in darkness<br /> Lost in time<br /> Losing a grip on my fucking mind<br /> Ignorance is an easy friend but in the end it takes everything<br /> Fear, it finds me and it binds me<br /> Illuminate the planes of consciousness<br /> Fear, it finds me<br /> and it binds me<br /> But I’m lost<br /> Guilt draws me down like a stone<br /> it chokes my throat, and gnaws my bones<br /> Regret breeds a heavy heart<br /> Reality, torn in two<br /> Canonised, a life that fades before my eyes<br /> Ever faithful friend, sorrow, sets its teeth<br /> Eaten alive<br /> But I will survive<br /> I survive<br /> Fury, deliver me<br /> How can you defeat what you can’t kill?<br /> Deliver me<br /> I see the fear that twists inside<br /> Deliver me<br /> I watch the shadows fill with doubt<br /> Deliver me<br /> Fury deliver me</p>
09. Karma
<p>Crashing to the surface<br /> My convictions lay bare before the tempest<br /> As chaos explodes around me, I find myself in the jaws of destruction<br /> Tested, by the force of the tempest<br /> Pushed, to the point of no return<br /> Losing ground<br /> Let the steel of my resolve be not bested by the sum of my fears<br /> Clarity unfolds, a moments calm in the eye of the storm<br /> Relentless, I surge onward<br /> Surfacing<br /> No regrets<br /> No second chance<br /> Nothing will hold me back<br /> Shipwrecked bones carry my seasick heart home<br /> Carry me home<br /> Tension clings to me<br /> Resistance coils inside<br /> Forcing me down, I fear nothing, into Poseidon’s arms<br /> Forcing me down, I fear nothing, I must hold on<br /> This is a strength born in misery<br /> A focus cut of this insanity<br /> I fight my way from the gates of hell<br /> I hold on<br /> A body, locked in the vice grip of conflict<br /> A mind, sharpened on the shards of disappointment<br /> And from the depths of Hell I rise<br /> From gilded cage, my spirit flies<br /> Memories of another life call me home<br /> Surfacing<br /> Shipwrecked bones<br /> carry my seasick heart home</p>
10. Home Is for the Heartless
<p>If home is where the heart is, why do I feel so fucking heartless?<br /> The crumbling skyline cuts a vicious horizon, sinking its teeth into the cold September sky<br /> Decaying towers of steel reach with crooked spires for the heavens, like bones of the hollow chest of this town, torn wide for the scavengers<br /> Mother mercy, take my hand<br /> Follow me through this forsaken land<br /> Father time, return what’s mine<br /> The innocence you stole from these eyes<br /> Because I feel numb. For the vision burning before me is one of former glory<br /> An icon cast in the light of freer times, now writhes in a bed of lies<br /> Hope doesn’t live here<br /> Love doesn’t live here anymore<br /> Mother mercy, take my hand<br /> Follow me through this forsaken land<br /> Father time, return what’s mine<br /> The innocence you stole from these eyes<br /> Because I just feel numb</p>
11. Hollow
<p>Lies<br /> My truth has been revealed, at the cost of everything I knew<br /> My last safe-haven falls behind me, with the self that once consumed<br /> Into the void<br /> I’m pursuing only answers<br /> I’m shedding skins and faces, past loves and bitter hatreds<br /> And it has come to pass, a path set in stone now breaks like glass<br /> The failings of yesterday become the catalyst to seek my change<br /> And it has come to pass, a path set in stone now breaks like glass<br /> The failings of yesterday become my catalyst<br /> So here I stand, a stranger to my newfound freedom<br /> I am a vessel<br /> I am a vessel without destination, devoid of direction<br /> No roles define m, yet conflict embraces me<br /> At the mercy if lucidity, I am adrift in a world all to real<br /> A hollow man<br /> Into the arms of eternal struggle, I must condemn my restless mind<br /> And it has come to pass, a path set in stone now breaks like glass<br /> The failings of yesterday become the catalyst to seek my change<br /> And it has come to pass, a path set in stone now breaks like glass<br /> The failings of yesterday become my catalyst I seek the guidance gained from silence<br /> Illumination from within the darkness<br /> My council kept with the emptiness, in the heart of the unknown</p>
12. Leviathan I
<p>But there is no silence<br /> My thoughts drowned out<br /> Screeching and grinding resonates through a hollow shell<br /> There is no great wisdom<br /> There are no answers</p> <p>I close my eyes, but all I see is red<br /> I bite my tongue, but all I taste is blood<br /> Once again they set their traps, set their hooks, deep in my head<br /> Too naive to think these forked tongues would themselves devour</p> <p>Show me war<br /> Show me pestilence<br /> Show me the blood red hands of retribution</p> <p>And the abyss stares back<br /> Leviathan I</p> <p>To break their hold, strip the flesh straight from their bones</p> <p>Cast their limbs into the gears of the beast<br /> Bring this monstrosity to its fucking knees<br /> Eye for an eye</p> <p>I’ll send this world blind<br /> Show me war<br /> Show me pestilence<br /> Show me the blood red hands of retribution</p> <p>And the abyss stares back<br /> Leviathan I</p> <p>Under a blackened Sun<br /> Beneath a hunter’s moon<br /> Seething</p> <p>Dogs of war, they call for blood but it will not be mine</p>
13. Set to Destroy
<p>Brothers of abandonment, sisters of despair<br /> Orphans to the watching ones above<br /> Too far removed, too far to care<br /> We are the unwanted<br /> We are the one true threat<br /> We raise our hands to this World’s throat choke away its dying breath<br /> This is the end of days, this is the end of days, this is the end of days<br /> Set to destroy<br /> Fathers to our faithless days, mothers to our twisted ways<br /> Bow your heads<br /> Fold your hands and pray<br /> Your time has come<br /> This is the end of days, this is the end of days, this is the end of days<br /> Set to destroy<br /> Your flame is faded, so sink below<br /> Rest now your heavy head upon<br /> your bed of bones<br /> Too far removed<br /> Too far to care<br /> Set to destroy</p>
