Track Name: Symptoms Of Betrayal
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
Track Name: Splitting Hairs / Spitting Teeth
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
Track Name: Imposters
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)
Track Name: The Fool On The Hill
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
Track Name: In The Name Of Nothing
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
Track Name: Those Possessed By Devils
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
Track Name: Let The Fire Burn
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
Track Name: Tamám Shud
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
