01. Wishing Wells
<p>I spoke a vow today and asked if god would come and play<br /> I’ve dug a shallow hole for him to sleep<br /> But I swear he just won’t answer me<br /> I call on out is he afraid, I’ll bury him down with the ones he keeps<br /> And if the devil’s listening, I’ll come for him as well<br /> If I suspect he had a hand to play<br /> And if I see his face in town, there’s room for two down underground<br /> Nothing’s gonna stop me ‘til I’m done<br /> Until I’m done<br /> Because tonight I’m killing gods<br /> It’s guilt and frustration, it’s everything between<br /> The silence and the absence hitting home<br /> Peripheral glances and the chasing of a sound<br /> I never knew I’d miss until it’s gone<br /> So ask me how I’m coping<br /> And I’ll smile and tell you “I’m just fine”<br /> While down inside I’m drowning in the fucking rain<br /> Because when everything is empty<br /> And your heart is set to cave<br /> Sometimes all you wish for is a place<br /> Is a place to place the blame<br /> Burn your heaven<br /> Flood your hell<br /> Drown you in your wishing wells<br /> Burn your heaven<br /> Flood your hell<br /> Damn you all<br /> Because tonight I’m killing gods<br /> The incendiary shock wave, scorched earth policy<br /> The devastation that only loss will leave<br /> The chants and incantations of daily rituals<br /> A subtle lapse in brutal honesty<br /> So ask me how I’m coping<br /> And I’ll smile and tell you “I’m just fine”<br /> While down inside I’m screaming ‘tiI I fucking bleed<br /> Because when everyone’s expendable<br /> And your heart can’t take the wait<br /> The last thing that you wish for is the face<br /> Is the face to face the pain<br /> Burn your heaven<br /> Flood your hell<br /> Drown you in your wishing wells<br /> Burn your heaven<br /> Flood your hell<br /> Damn you all<br /> Because tonight I’m killing gods<br /> I spoke a vow today and asked if god would come and play<br /> Because I just want to cut that fucker down<br /> Face me<br /> None survive<br /> The devil and god have died inside me</p>

04. Cemetery Bloom
05. The Void
<p>Nothing can save us, nothing between<br /> Infinite madness and the spiral of humanity<br /> Nothing controls us, nothing breeds<br /> The void awakens in the quickening of atrophy<br /> Answer no master, never the slave<br /> Carry your dreams down into the grave<br /> Every heart, like every soul<br /> Equal to break<br /> It’s alive<br /> Can you feel it taking hold again<br /> In your mind<br /> All your demons are rattling chains<br /> Welcome to a world of pain<br /> Nothing kills us, nothing seethes<br /> Extinction riding on the pale horse of destiny<br /> Nothing hates us, nothing can see<br /> Through our eyes it dives into our minds<br /> And sows its disease<br /> Answer no master, never the slave<br /> Carry your dreams down into the grave<br /> Every heart, like every soul<br /> Equal to break<br /> It’s alive<br /> Can you feel it taking hold again<br /> In your mind<br /> All your demons are rattling chains<br /> Welcome to a world of pain<br /> It’s alive, can you feel it<br /> It’s alive<br /> Can you feel it taking hold again<br /> In your mind<br /> All your demons are rattling chains<br /> Welcome to a world of pain</p>

06. Writings on the Wall

01. Sparks
<p>Born of dust and stone<br /> Dead hearts, roaming a dying home<br /> Life leaves us all, white bones<br /> Upon the shores of time<br /> We are but sparks in a darkened world<br /> And yet some things were born to burn</p> <p>The napalm in your eyes<br /> Is all my cold heart needs<br /> If you bring the matches<br /> I’ll bring the gasoline<br /> I’m the same bad news as you<br /> You’re the same kind of fucked as me<br /> I’m the same bad news as you<br /> You’re the same, you’re the same as me</p>
02. Old Ghost / New Regrets
<p>Forever fucked<br /> We wage a war of suffering a deceit<br /> 100 thousand years of dreaming, drowned in a flood of fear and greed<br /> Precious heritage laid waste before the chainsaws snarling teeth<br /> Bleed the earth, bleed her ‘til her heart no longer beats</p> <p>And still we wonder why<br /> As the ground beneath our feet turns to dust<br /> The air we breathe, laced with poisons<br /> A legacy of disgust<br /> A legacy of sorrow<br /> So we’re born with nothing and we die alone</p> <p>We’re born with nothing<br /> And we die alone<br /> Regret is all we have<br /> Death is all we know</p> <p>Forever fucked<br /> Eradicate the truths of history<br /> Train our eyes, train our minds so we no longer see the casualties<br /> Countless cultures murdered, generations stolen and deceived<br /> No guilt to bear<br /> Born to consume, to breed, to deny all that keeps us free</p> <p>We’re born with nothing and we die alone<br /> Forever fucked</p>
03. Dream Run
<p>Do you remember all those nights<br /> When we stood side by side<br /> And we said, “we’ll save the goodbyes”<br /> The night is young<br /> We still have time</p> <p>In my dreams I see it ending<br /> I see the sky descending<br /> And I let the sadness empty from my heart<br /> ‘Cause in my dreams I feel I’m falling<br /> And I hear the darkness calling<br /> Don’t wake me up until the morning’s light</p> <p>Because I’ve never felt more alive</p> <p>Do you remember all those nights<br /> When we stood side by side<br /> And we said, “we’ll save the goodbyes”<br /> The night is young</p> <p>Well I never want to press rewind<br /> Every mistake that lead us here<br /> I wouldn’t change for anything<br /> Dear girl, there is a world that stands between us and them<br /> See this was never about giving up, just giving in</p> <p>Because you only live once<br /> But you spend your whole life dying<br /> So when it all comes crashing, know you’re not alone</p> <p>We welcome death with all our sins<br /> There is no fear when this life ends</p> <p>Do you remember</p> <p>Do you remember all those nights<br /> When we stood side by side<br /> And we said, “we’ll save the goodbyes”<br /> The night is young<br /> We still have time </p> <p>‘Cause I’ve never felt more alive</p>
04. Wild Eyes
<p>We build our dreams from the ashes of your nightmares<br /> Carry our father’s sins from the cradle to the grave<br /> We blaze our path through the darkness that you left us in<br /> Now we ride in the belly of the beast<br /> We are the diamonds that choose to stay coal<br /> A generation born to witness the end of the world</p> <p>Against the grain<br /> Against the odds<br /> Against the world<br /> Forever the underdogs</p> <p>We are the bastard sons<br /> We are the ones that refused to grow cold<br /> We are the thorn in your side<br /> We are the thieves in the night<br /> And we’re coming to take what’s ours</p> <p>No regrets<br /> We inherit the sins of the fathers, now reap the vengeance</p> <p>From the ashes of your nightmares<br /> From the cradle to the grave<br /> We blaze our path through the darkness that you left us in<br /> Now we ride in the belly of the beast<br /> We are the diamonds that choose to stay coal<br /> A generation born to witness the end of the world</p> <p>Born to witness the end of the world</p> <p>Viva the underdogs</p>
05. Dark Days
<p>What will you tell your children when they ask you “what went wrong”<br /> How can you paint a picture of a paradise lost<br /> To eyes that know only a wasteland<br /> How will you justify watching the world die</p> <p>The clock is ticking, can’t you feel our days are numbered<br /> Head first into disaster from which there will be no return<br /> With narrow minds we decimate our one true home<br /> Cast into oblivion, judgement is calling</p> <p>Behold the pale horse<br /> This is the funeral of the Earth<br /> Behold the pale horse<br /> This is the funeral</p> <p>The blind eye can no longer be cast<br /> The clock is ticking, there is no second chance</p> <p>The blind eye can no longer be cast<br /> There will be no future, if we can’t learn from our mistakes<br /> The clock is ticking, there is no second chance<br /> There will be no future, if we can’t learn</p> <p>A forced extinction closes out the age of apathy<br /> The final act, sacrifice the world’s ecology<br /> The death of beauty, the death of hope<br /> Cast before the throne of avarice, judgement is calling</p> <p>Behold the pale horse<br /> This is the funeral of the Earth<br /> Behold the pale horse<br /> This is the funeral </p> <p>The blind eye can no longer be cast<br /> There will be no future, if we can’t learn from our mistakes<br /> The clock is ticking, there is no second chance<br /> There will be no future, if we can’t learn</p> <p>I can’t watch it burn</p> <p>Behold the pale horse</p>
06. The River

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

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>

Such a mindless slaughter<br /> Bow down to your greed<br /> Bloodshed<br /> Your lies cut their throat<br /> Such beauty<br /> Such innocence<br /> Set to self destruct<br /> As you nail their coffin shut<br /> With your hammer of hate<br /> The flesh is torn, hate remains<br /> The<br /> Flesh<br /> Is<br /> Torn<br /> They bleed<br /> Bloodshed<br /> Broken by your hand<br /> Who will bleed for you now?</p>
14. Hopeless
<p>Tear my heart from my chest<br /> Still warm in my hands<br /> Feel the life drain away<br /> This distance is staggering<br /> Stealing the air from my lungs<br /> Choking me where i stand<br /> Hopeless, just one last kiss<br /> You sound so close<br /> I can almost feel your breath<br /> Too close to touch the fragment of my memory<br /> Tormenting me forever<br /> Haunting me forever<br /> Stretching towards forever<br /> Each second seems like a year<br /> And this eternity is tearing me apart, tearing me apart<br /> Hopeless<br /> Victim of my own human desire<br /> Love is a demon sent to destroy me<br /> I never knew distance could kill</p>
