Track Name: Cauterize
Can you bring yourself to watch the world burn?
Track Name: Prisoner
Fate is against me
In health and virtue
Driven on, weighted down
Always Enslaved

Always Enslaved

I tell myself
To fucking hold on
But can I, with the weight of the world
Holding me back

Pushing me back
To my bitter end
So I try to stand down
And still pretend

Fate is against me
In health and virtue

Always Enslaved

To overcome myself,
I need to break these chains

Break these fucking chains
It's all in my head
Track Name: Despair (ft. Zach Britt and Nathaniel Smith)
They say I'm lost
Holding on to a dying light
Breathe in the life, you pushed away

Breathe in the life, don't end in strife
As they say, my dear friend
Everything must come to an end

So close my eyes, to feel alive
Surrounded by the darkness here
I try to be the light
So leave the world so far behind
I had everything I needed in my mind
To let it go, just so you know

I will pour all of myself into this life before I die
For I see the end

If I go before my time, I will commit the crime
As long as you stay by my side I will not lose my pride
I am feeling the end draw near
I can see the world for what it really is

This is something I can not bear to witness any longer
All that is mine will not cease to exist
As the light escapes me
As the world comes to an end

I can't help but wonder
Why do we suffer?
I can't help but realize
Why do we live by these lies?
It doesn't matter, because in the end
Everybody dies

So close my eyes, to feel alive
Surrounded by the darkness here
I try to be the light
So leave the world so far behind
I had everything I needed in my mind
To let it go, just so you know
Track Name: Waste
Time is running out
Each step I take, is a step in the wrong direction
And time is a painful burden
The hours and days are passing by

The ticking clock repeating in my head
A constant reminder that I should be dead
Only moving forward can't change the wrongs I've made
Is this ever going to fade?

As I watch everything fall apart
Crumble within my arms
I know that at heart
There's no going back

My heart is filled with somber

The face of infinity

As I watch everything fall apart
Crumble within my arms
I know that at heart
There's no going back

The face is burning
Burning forever

Burned down to ashes
A pile of dust remains
The face; it smashes
Will it ever be the same

Time is wasting away
There is nothing for me
Track Name: Retention
Why do I deserve this?
Did I do something wrong?
I didn't do anything to you;
When will this end?

It makes me feel empty
It makes me feel low
But not as low as you
And there is no pity

You need to burn in hell

May you lay there to waste away
Waste away

Fuck you
Get your putrid hands off my collar
I can't take this anymore
Fuck you

I'm being pushed around
But who is the real victim?
Am I to blame for all your problems?

I hope whatever is happening in your mind
Makes what you're doing to me worth it
Because in the end,
Everything will be okay

Turns out you're not alright
You toss and turn in your bed at night
Making others suffer for your mistakes
Will not repair them

I'd rather be anywhere but here

Why do I deserve this?
Did I do something wrong?
I didn't do anything to you;
When will this end?
Track Name: Onslaught (ft. Mark Poida of Aversions Crown)
"I'm sorry"
Are the words I keep saying
"I'm sorry"
Are the words I keep hearing
You degrade our society
Surrounding us with anger and grief

No one is laughing now
You think it's all a game
But you need to know
I'm not your slave

The tears keep flowing
The pain keeps growing
Will there ever be a way out?

"I'm sorry"
Are the words I keep saying
"I'm sorry"
Are the words I keep hearing
You degrade our society
Surrounding us with anger and grief

Bringing the world to my knees
There's no end in sight
Putting my life in your hands
I need to find the light

You want to destroy me
My existence
You can't fucking stop me

I can't see
I can't breathe
I can't control myself

You are the human affliction
Liberating our being

You'll get what you deserve
You heartless swine
Feeding off of my soul
You will no more

This is our desolation
