Track Name: FADE AWAY
At war with myself
this path leads to hell
no recourse, no restraint
and finally I’m taking back what’s mine cause you could not maintain

your lies, they piled on up
a wasted life, you’re wasting your days

At peace with the fact
That what haunts you holds me back
No promises, no refrain
You made your choice; how could I contain myself?

It’s time to give up, drop out, fade away
Track Name: HEIGHT OF HUBRIS
Stop wasting my time and your breath
what's the point of letting go of regret
if only to decide you were better off
so why now do you feel so wronged?

a hundred times I repeat on a page
that I am more than a person driven by rage
the answers you seek won't be clear
but to you it's all a fucking game

what's the point of these songs if only to prove you wrong?
what's the point anyway? you'll get yours, you always found a way

you take and you take and you take
just take a good long look at yourself in the mirror
your reflection couldn't be any clearer
you try, you fight, we all struggle sometimes
I won't be here when you decide it's time
Track Name: STRANGER DAYS
Warned, I stood right by
Somber ends you always seemed to fantasize,
But all I wanted was for you to fill the cracks where we bloomed
The silence bites where I sleep
I fell the fall, straight, offbeat,
You always told me to watch the friends I keep
Never had it all, all you did was talk, run your mouth again
(see it all happen as you’re losing your head)
Never had it all, all you did was talk, run your mouth again
(see the shades of red drip down from your neck)
So what the fuck is going on
(I’ve heard this story before, I never thought I would feel so fucking bored)

One more word from you, see this all come true

And this all I have left:
Buried body, broken bones
Shattered spirit, hollowed soul
Track Name: SLIP OF THE TONGUE
Paranoia of the martyr, master of the holy blood:
I’ve envisioned your erasure, I’ll strangle the life from your world

But in this hour of our torture, I refuse to bow
Take arms against our fathers, and burn this city down,
Release the fucking hounds

But all I ever did was question all you wished, raised on contempt,
Set apart,
Still lost,
Burn away your sins.

Suffer end to end,
Your descent will begin,

Blood spills again on holy land.

A life eclipsed; Death waits at your steps.
