Track Name: Genesis
Into the fall, autumn years have passed
Commence control, the time has come at last
Seeking shelter, peace
I need to know, to put my soul at ease.

What has this world come to
There is nothing left that we can do
Show us there’s a chance
That our child can survive here too,
even without you

You take us beneath your wings
For as long as we obey
Born into a world of greed
No one makes it on their own

Trust me I only want your best
Come on as you are this day
We take you deep inside our warmth
regardless of your will
“Give up or die for the greater good”

A promise worth
More than one can say
Obedience fails
Stay the hell away
Seeking shelter, peace
The word is out, we don’t comment

You take us beneath your wings
For as long as we obey
Born into a world of greed
No one makes it on their own

Trust me I only want your best
Come on as you are this day
We take you deep inside our warmth
regardless of your will
“Give up or die for the greater good”

We haven’t seen the profit in our hands as you promised
And we are all ashamed that we thought it was true, deceiving liars
Justice can fall from grace
And hit you with its own right pace
Hunting your generations to come
You destroy the love for me within

Into the fall, autumn years have passed
Commence control, the time we had has passed

What kind of place is this? I don’t want my girl growing up in these circumstances. It’ll kill her. I can’t let her have the same misfortunes we had. She has to get a better life than this. Huh, this is no life.
Track Name: Addicted
The lack of you makes me turn in my sleep
Proclaiming abilities I did not know was in me
What I have paid, and offered you in blood
Never returning. Never surrendering to you.

Never give in to the torment of salvation
My gaze seems to vanish as you lay your touch upon me (NO!)
You had your chance, you spent it well and still I hunger for more

I hate and love the part of me who believes
The revelations have caught up with me
All I live for is the hope of forgiveness
For all I’ve abandoned in favouring you

NO! Never again will I lay all my trust in your lies.

My distress needs a conqueror of true lies
I can’t fight it and I know I won’t.
Deep in the heart of my soul shines the light
That will keep me from leaving this place

The thought of departure is gaining value
Appealing to all of my senses as they fall
The needle’s at gunpoint, saved from oblivion,
How I endured it, I’ll never know

I hate and love the part of me who believes
The revelations have caught up with me
All I live for is the hope of forgiveness
For all I’ve abandoned in favouring you
Track Name: Perennial Euphoria
I turn my head
Confusion overwhelming me
I must be dead
Don’t understand what has happened to me

I keep on falling
I keep on running

I close my eyes and try to focus
(Everything just fades away)
Memories of my innocence
Lies vaguely in my mind

Oblivion surrounds me eternally
I know not where I belong
Someone please come help me
There is no sign of salvation
In this godforsaken place
The path of my destiny shines through your eyes

The light hit my face like a mallet
They try not to comprehend
Suppressing all their feelings
Professional judgement strikes all as one

We live in a world of possibilities
There’s no sympathy here for you to find
We cannot understand why someone
Could do such a thing to themselves.

The world is fading before my eyes
(Everything seems blurry and strange)
My life recapitulates before my eyes
Is this the end, was it all in vain
Is this how I die?!
Is this how I die?

Oblivion surrounds me eternally
I know not where I belong
Someone please come help me
There is no sign of salvation
In this godforsaken place
The path of my destiny shines through your eyes
Track Name: Drifting
Selfpity is no more an option
She rests an eternal sleep
Her thoughts divided
Tried to conquer her mind

Life flashes before her eyes
Nothing but pain
She would do anything
To break from this hell

Oblivion surrounds me
(My biggest fears come true)
The world as I knew it
(Seems to have no use of me)
Where have I gone
(I wanted to be left behind)
The darkness, the sorrow
Is crushing me

One thing I remember
The way you’ve treated me
All attempts to earn acceptance seem superfluous
Why don’t you just dispose of me?

Her so called ”loved ones”
All gathered around her
The smell of guilt lay upon
Each and everyone

I'm sensing a presence
(Familiar smells all around)
The darkness descending
(I try to open my eyes)
My body’s not mine
(Lost control over my own life)
My eyes won’t open.
Help me.

One thing I remember
The way you’ve treated me
All attemps to earn acceptance seem superfluous
Why don't you just dispose of me?

Long time has gone
Since my body was mine
I wouldn’t know how to feel fine
I won't try any more to earn their respect
When all I get back is their hate
And their fake sympathy

She opened her eyes
To find silence in the air
All had vanished before her
She thought they were there
At last, she found her solitude
Track Name: Legacy
Frustration and anger
So frightened that I cannot speak
These feelings within appearing
(as the doors are shut)

I cannot lie to myself
Any more
I need salvation from this
Place I know

Why can’t you let me out of here
Haven’t I hurt enough?
I need to get away from these white coats
But where do I go?

Walls closing around me
Hard to breathe
All hope is fading away
Never wanted to go here
Too much pain
Why must I come here and face my fate?

The treatment hurts
What can I do?
I just keep playing along with the needles
I’ve got no control
Just like the last time
I was here against my will

Why can't you let me out of here
Haven't I hurt enough?
I need escape from all these tests and needles
But where do I go?

I’ve seen all the doors close
In my dreams
Haunting me every night
Ever since...

This gruesome fate which brings me
Back into this place
Won’t let me rest until I shut the door and give in

Why can’t you let me out of here
Haven’t you caused enough?
I will not suffer treatment any longer
But where should I go?
Track Name: False Innocence
Beyond the lies pain shines through
Her eyes reflecting a silent scream
The misconception of her innocence has gone
The curtains for her eyes have left her

What she knew will never be the same
Holding on to the life that was before
Before the pain in this endless path to misery
The misery called life

Why had she chosen this kind of life?
How could her steps lead her so far into a lie?
Her innocent eyes would mean nothing now
So she finally understood what life is all about.

Hold me close to your heart
'Cause I am dead set on dying
This time nothing will change
'Cause I've been grasping at straws all my life
And every time I ricochet back into the abyss.
This time don't stop me

The years were fading
Passing by
All hope is drifting away
All seems futile
Nothing’s going right
Her fate not yet been sealed

She was hoping to find her way out of this
Struggling to find her path, in all the pain and grief
She was aware that she needed help to live
The help was holding out
It never came, It never came...

Hold me close to your heart
'Cause I am dead set on dying
This time nothing will change
My end will be inglorious
but make no mistake,
you played your part in what put me on medicine...

She cried helplessly for all she had lost
Holding on to the memories that made her strong
Strong enough to work her way back to the life that she'd been dreaming of

She was hoping to find her way out of this
Struggling to find her path, in all the pain and grief
She was aware that she needed help to live
The help was holding out
It never came, It never came...
Track Name: When Death Fails
Come listen to me
and I'll show you the way out of your missery and all your pain
I wouldn't say
that today is better than another
only that another day is one more prayer
God damn whatever god put you away and let you scream in vain
Don't you believe anything they say
Just chime with me

I'm broken and hung out to dry
(I cannot breathe the air)
Frail and suffocating every day
(Tormented and strung out I cannot feel)
Tormented and strung out I cannot feel
Burn me up and take me out to sea

Don't you feel like screaming out to all those kindred spirits out there and tell them:
«This world is not for us!»

So I come to you once again in your sleep,
but this time there is something different
A change?
You still seem listless, unwilling to go on
Yet not quite ready to let go

I contemplate our existance;
what's outside our subjective reality

Listen, what is life but a slave to eternal death and decay?
A fleeting moment of insignificant resistance against the inevitable

Time kills all life, time kills me
Time kills all life, time kills you

I'm broken and hung out to dry
(I cannot breathe the air)
Frail and suffocating every day
(Tormented and strung out I cannot feel)
Tormented and strung out I cannot feel
Burn me up and take me out to sea

I'm not gonna fall in line and fall behind like the rest of the fucking herd
You pinstripe cock sucker's not gonna pin me down to a desk, I'd rather die
Than walk a mile in your misserable fucking shoes, you piece of shit!
You just sit there and rot while I mock your insignificance

«You see their smiles, nodding, laughing
Masks, pretences...
No one's gonna hurt you here. (They all lie to you)
I promise you I'll make them go away!»

I'm broken and hung out to dry
(I cannot breathe the air)
Frail and suffocating every day
(Tormented and strung out I cannot feel)
Tormented and strung out I cannot feel
Burn me up and take me out to sea, yeah

If you wake up tomorow in utter failure, I'll tell you this: when Death fails there is..
NO WAY TO DIE!
Track Name: Flawless Silence
The bridge of sanity is lost
I watch my life drift away
Elusive nightmares take control
All I long for is yesterday

Discontent with the reality that flows through my blood
Keeping it all to myself as time goes by
No respect, no fragments of remorse for all I have done
If we break the demands of perfection
Conformist doctrinal conceptions
United we would stand for eternity

During a flawless silence
Enduring all that comes from within
Where the last curtain in the act of accomplishment is drawn
All I do is reflect their perspective
Seeing the world through their eyes
But now I demand my turn at the wheel in my circle of life

Say it loud, I can make it, I know I can
You won’t let me live my life alone
I’ll make you proud, to fit into the master plan
Consisting of no one but you

All the feelings I had for you
Summoned up from the way down below
All the things that I had to do
Recognition shown with a cold gaze

Far across the lands of injustice
I travel to cure the pain I caused you
Surrender my life to your control
Mistakes made by me will no longer stand

I fulfill my fate as I conquer
Territories in my path
Nothing else will suffice my commander
But to lay down my life for the cause

The greatest sacrifices are driven by honour
Eternal glory awaits the one who falls
Don't fall behind in the quest for answers
Answers that no one has asked for.

Thinking so highly of ourselves
Questioning the existence of tomorrow
Cold hearts bred in a dead world
We try, and deny if we fail

All the feelings I had for you
Summoned up from the way down below
All the things that I had to do
Recognition shown with a cold gaze

Far across the lands of injustice
I travel to cure the pain I caused you
Surrender my life to your control
Mistakes made by me will no longer stand

I fulfill my fate as I conquer
Territories in my path
Nothing else will suffice my commander
But to lay down my life for the cause

The greatest sacrifices are driven by honour
Eternal glory awaits the one who falls
Don't fall behind in the quest for answers
Answers that no one has asked for.
Track Name: United
Living life to the fullest has been the objective
I would know whether I failed or passed
How the story of my life was laid out
Varies from time to time

My version is I lived a life of pity
Never including my destiny
I once tried my best to accomplish
All that meant the world to me

Where did we do wrong, we had nothing but good intentions
All suppressed by her own wish of rebellion
Hoping for improvement deep in her mind, so she could see what she left behind
The world gave her a crushing defeat

I’m sorry for it all, I never meant to go this far
I needed this to figure out who I am and who you are
I’m sorry for it all but it has played out by itself
I can’t go back to regenerate, I’m stuck on this shelf of righteousness

I have lied and cheated my way through my whole life
Don’t know what’s real and not any more
My friends left...
I bring misfortune to all

Every little thing, said or done
Will be remembered till we are as one
United we stand, we have tightened the band
Every little thing make us strong
We'll hold together till we touch the sun
United we stand, we have tightened the band
There’s nothing stronger
Stronger than bloodline

Empires fall, as do Greeks of old
What they lack is the perfect confession
Say sorry for it all
Relive those days
When the world was not ablaze
If I could take it all back I would be
Free from my misery

I’m sorry for it all, I never meant to go this far
I needed this to figure out who I am and who you are
I’m sorry for it all but it has played out by itself
I can’t go back to regenerate, I’m stuck on this shelf of righteousness

My version is I lived a life of pity
Never including my destiny
I once tried my best to accomplish
All that meant the world to me

Living life to the fullest
Has been her objective
I don’t know whether she failed or passed
How the story of her life was laid out
Fading from time to time

I’m sorry for it all, I never meant to go this far
I needed this to figure out who I am and who you are
I’m sorry for it all but it has played out by itself
I can’t go back to regenerate, I’m stuck on this shelf of righteousness
