A drowning man You chose your path Now bear the mark There’s no redemption Like dying suns The light's gone out And gravity is crushing Time has been deceived A silhouette of a former self Emotionless and dispossessed Cut free this pound of flesh The measure of the penitent Welcome to hopelessness, Empty words and symptoms of betrayal. Deceit cuts like a knife And twists on your insides All these wounds are self inflicted With a promise of malcontent and the worship of disappointment Welcome to hopelessness, Empty words and Symptoms of betrayal Can't climb out this bottle How much worse can it get? Not defective, just human. Burning with the wrath of God And ready to explode. Too blind, too blind, too blind to see You're too blind to see This is not for the faint of heart You'll make it what you will If everyone carries blame then no one is shamed You are your own worst enemy Master of your own destruction The light's gone out and set on this day We're lost in the wilderness Welcome to hopelessness

Bet against tomorrow Winner takes all 30 pieces of silver With no remorse Feed off the host, you burst and bloom Your parasitic point of view We are splitting hairs Maybe your wrong, maybe you’re not It’s your cross, you own it Your scarlet letter Slow drip - seeping poison Build your walls or choose to pull them down___ I embrace the things I cannot change Tried to escape from this open cage And now I’m spitting teeth There’s money lenders in the temple It's time to step out from your shadow Refuse to be a number Show dissent to your beliefs Cut out the disease Reprogram my reaction Contamination This is affliction Reprogram my reaction One thing’s for sure It’s time to come out swinging

It's just a matter of time Neck deep but you keep digging Guilty by association Lost yourself from the beginning Don’t think, don’t talk, don’t fucking speak Suspicion haunts you And you tell yourself Deception is the key Just fake sincerity The turning of the screw They'll find you out in time How sorrowful, To adopt the coward's role. Hide behind your fear, The wolves are at the gate. Braced for the inquisition Exposed and sweating bullets Calm surface with a monster underneath Don’t speak, don’t speak, don’t fucking speak Suspicion haunts you Can you hear the violins? Deception is the key Just fake sincerity The turning of the screw They'll find you out in time How sorrowful, To adopt the coward's role. Hide behind your fear. The wolves are at the gate. Play, play, play the violins And in the end____the end They’ll burn you like a heretic Like a heretic Watching the embers raining down Feeding on your imperfection Corruption takes its toll And swallows what conscience you may have left You sold your soul As well you know You sold your soul Just how much do you owe? Baying for your blood (The wolves are at the gate)

You pull the pin and lead the herd off the cliff Stoke the fires of the misdirected A gold plated insurrection We should've seen this coming I guess we'll just have to adjust It was scattered in the bones And buried in the dust What a sorry state we're in Let the song and dance begin Inhale, exhale The emperor wears no clothes Fear of the other takes its hold Slowly taking over Silently hate takes control Awestruck and speechless Far from the smartest in the room A shelf bought rebellion Abandon all fucking hope, Ye who enter here Savour the taste of fear Inhale, exhale The emperor wears no clothes Fear of the other takes its hold Slowly taking over Silently hate takes control Bought and sold They're falling at his feet Bought and sold You're worshipping a fake They bought you and sold you You're worshipping a fake Go build your straw God in the free fall Let him pull the trigger Teardown your idols one by one Your fucking martyr Slowly taking over I’ll never worship a fool

You slipped away And though I tried The tears don’t come It’s a guilt I can’t shed now My second skin What I didn’t know I’m sure of now We die alone And life moves on Just skin and bone And nothing more Give in, give up The painful truth The good fight is done In the end we all stand alone Pierce the veil and step into the great unknown A poisoned gift a sick matter of chance All for nothing What a fucking waste Time, time is not your friend You're tragically condemned To fall between the cracks And slowly fade away Regret is painted all over your face A lamentation that comes in spades Fill your weary lungs And scream into the void Was it all for nothing, This hurt I call my own? In the name of nothing We fall When is enough enough? Not every fight you fight can be won Death is a thief A lie, a deceit In his wake he leaves nothing but grief Try not to get sentimental The memory still haunts me But I’ll cast it all away It’s Masochistic and profane Corrosive thoughts and prayers Was it all for nothing, This hurt I call my own? In the name of nothing And no one The act of living is the art of dying Cast it all away and live in the moment, the moment With no god, no promise and no fucking regrets I’ll see you in hell Forever cursed, I'll see you in hell

Hail to the parasite Holding court with the sycophants Snared by the antagonist The unified are ripped asunder There’s no right, you’re all wrong Two sides of the same old coin Strong words, weak minds This where courage comes to die They're burning torches in this day and age, where's your outrage? Too pious to be ashamed Make humanity hate again Make hypocrisy great again dancing in the ashes trampling the fearful and heralding the end Spoon fed like children Starved until they're grateful Sleepwalking you taught them to fear their own shadow Stranglehold, in a grip so cold The proud king of a broken kingdom Spits venom in a stolen crown enthusiastic arsonist Just wants to watch compassion burn down They’re burning bridges in this day and age where's your outrage? Land of the free? Make humanity hate again Make hypocrisy great again dancing in the ashes trampling the fearful and heralding the end Land of the fear Home of the slave Corrupt and soulless Myopic focus You barely notice You've lost your way

13th May 1985 On that day the fire rained from the sky The smoke rose to blacken the sun A dark omen of things to come Cruel like knives Your words and actions Tore and defiled A celebration of life Exposing the lies Buried beneath the surface Dragged them into the light Beat down the broken hearted The innocent were consumed whole An endless cycle set to repeat and repeat and repeat It was an act of legalised genocide Orchestrated by the thin blue line A people held in contempt Divisive and grotesque Suffocated the flames of your hateful heart Beat down the broken hearted The innocent were consumed whole And you chose to let them burn You let them Burn What made them turn and walk into the fire? I think you fucking know, I think you fucking know A beaten dog has no choice but to bite no more than vermin in your eyes It was a planned execution They bow dropped to crush an uprising Let the fire burn Consume us all

Shadows from the past return Reminders of impermanence And Then you_________. There’s mystery in you_______. Sewn into the tragedy Well presented agony Peaceful violence, punctures the silence Pull back the curtain, open a door then leave Sinner or saint? Your misbegotten son Crossed out and struck through His song remains unsung God give me something to believe Something more than just this apathy in me Maggot minded False horizons Buried deep so they can’t find them Like a vagrant Endless searching Overturning this perversion Muddied waters Cold and distant Groping in the shallows, drowning Shrinking circles A hollow confession Words we once believed are not remembered Your misbegotten son Is screaming out God give me something to believe Something more than just this apathy in me Read the words and tell me that it’s over Raise the alarm, raise the alarm, Rome is burning Raise the alarm, Rome is burning, Rome is burning Lines are blurring Sweet divergence Caesar’s turning Slip the knife in Bleed the truth_______________. And everything - it is over_____. Dispose of childish things it is over Release the burden it is over
