Track Name: Avici
You're climbing up steps that will lead you to failure
Consuming yourself in this discontent

And You'll Burn
Track Name: Tradition of Fear
Dictate my existence under shadows of your influence
Channel through all that you see fit

Swallowing the horseshit you endorse as status quo
God I'd rather have my throat slit

Control
Denied
Now You've crossed the line

End the fear that's destroying us all
One final chance to prevent the fall
If you've survived so far then fight this fight with me
There's nothing wrong with a little audacity

Refute and rise
Strike down deny
I fight your reliance adhered
It ends here yet the struggle has just begun
Suppress the voice that tries to bring you home
Obliterating your tradition of fear

Spewing out your ab-truth just to gain the mass appeal
Teetering on the edge of bullshit
Rewriting the rubric of your acceptable speech
Media your conduit

Unholy
Defined
Now you've crossed the line

End the fear that's destroying us all
One final chance to prevent the fall
If you've survived so far then fight this fight with me
There's nothing wrong with a little audacity

Refute and rise
Strike down deny
I fight your reliance adhered
It ends here yet the struggle has just begun
Suppress the voice that tries to bring you home
Obliterating your tradition of fear

We're the fuel to the fire
Strike the match

Never threaten if you can't deliver
The time is now
Pull the trigger

Never threaten if you can't deliver
Lock and load
Pull the trigger

(The fear of offending the twisted tradition)
You crossing the line in exhausting sedition
(You've shoved down our throats the words of your God)
While pissing on the separation signed
From the start
Right and left
Made up of fools
They're setting our boundaries
They birth ideologies
Of how we should feel
Corruption's revealed
They're mongers of fear
Yet they're minds are in terror of what we reveal

Refute and rise
Strike down deny
I fight your reliance adhered
It ends here yet the struggle has just begun
Suppress the voice that tries to bring you home
Obliterating your tradition of fear

Never threaten if you can't deliver
The time is now
Pull the fucking trigger

Never threaten if you can't deliver
Lock and load
Track Name: The Way To Crash and Burn
Well it's been twenty-one long years
Anticipating the fulfillment of all my fears
I don't want to give up trying
But oh well what the hell

You don't like it when I say no
Just wait until the rubber meets the road
Don't come crying to me
What the hell might as well

Out of sight out of mind
Out of time that's the bottom line
Is there a general lack of understanding
Of your personal horror?

Don't drop dead
Break free
Backset your actions
Reverse the order of reality
Break free
Transpose your horror
You'll get some color

This is extremely (It's utterly insane)
This is completely
Shot
It's shot to hell
When will you realize that your not alone and let go?

Are you fucking finished?

You're as brittle as a leaf in the fall
Slowly dying in a gentle descent
Wrinkling from the cool air brisk and raw
Crackling away on the chilled cement

Now
Dead
Cold heart cruel
Dying
In your eyes
Body
Gives me strength
Down
Now and forever dust

Well it's been twenty-one long years
Left with a question mark
Track Name: Scab Platter
Laughing at the sight of my dreams
All falling apart at the seams
Laughing at the sight of my dreams
All falling apart at the seams

Pick your poison mine picked me
Lifeless eyes cold dead once were green

I aim to please
Me and my own needs
Infinity of knotted feats tied in tiers
Coping with the fear
Of the long way down
There's no clear path for me to tread

Fear is black with scalded vision
Empty goals and fake ambition
Happiness is so diluted
Procreate conformed amusement

Join me in this time to kill
While we catch up silent still

Turn back time (wasted vision)
I hate I (blank commitment)
Fixed by means of the mundane
Am I throwing my life away?

Eat my scabs I'll eat yours too
Share my pain and taste all of my wounds

I aim to please
Me and my own needs
Infinity of knotted feats tied in tiers
Coping with the fear
Of the long way down
There's no clear path for me to dread

I wish I could wish dreams true
Death accredits bleeding through
Gone forgotten twice removed
Please just let me bleed through you

(I wish I could wish
all our dreams come true,
If only I could die,
please just let me bleed through you)

(Now I will admit,
part of me always knew,
Just leave me alone,
Sobriety scares me too)

Laughing at the sight of my dreams
All falling apart at the seams
Laughing at the sight of my dreams
All falling apart at the seams
Track Name: [pieta]
Seen it coming
Saw it going
From a mile away
Just speckle of dust in the wind
Flowing like cursive across the gray sky

Baby steps
Through a darkened tomb
So sick and tired of being sick and tired
Shrouded in decay
Wait to disintegrate
We're at a halt
One must suffer the horror to truly understand
I'll never understand
I will never understand
Track Name: Dhyana
It takes a little bit of time to work things out
It takes a little bit of time to set things straight
It takes a little bit of time to ease your health
It takes little bit of time to find your sanity

Underneath the stairs there lies the coma you shall keep
