Track Name: She's Been Scorned
She's been scorned, the crown of fire is now her's alone, she reaps, what so many before have sewn, her eyes, pierce right through this heart of mine, her cries, my siren song, my demise.

Her colours fade, her love became rage, her darkness a weapon, she blackens the earth and the heavens.

Her colours fade, her love became rage, her darkness a weapon, she blackens the earth and the heavens.

She blackens the earth and the heavens (x3)

The heavens.
Track Name: The Beginning of the End
Look at what we've become, look at what we have become, look at what we've become, look at what we've become

Look at what we have become, look at what we've become, look at what we've become

What am I searching for? (x2) Why do I think there is so much more? (So much more)

What am I searching for? (searching for, searching for) Why do I think there is so much more? (So much more)

Inside I've drown all of my sorrow, Inside it feels like there's no tomorrow (x2)

When will I sleep?, what will it leave?, inside I'm broken again, I'll drag you with me until the end, 'till the end (x3)

Trying to run away, (run away, run away), no one can hear me scream, (hear me scream) (x2)

Trying to run away, (run away, run away), no one can hear me scream, (hear me scream) (x2)

Look at what we've become (x6)

When will I sleep?, what will it leave?, inside I'm broken again, I'll drag you with me until the end, 'till the end (x3)
Track Name: Corrupt
It's said, that life, will end, without a sound, but, I will, not have, you bringing me down

Trapped inside my, trapped inside my head, trapped inside my, trapped inside my, trapped inside my head

So what will I?, so why can't I? so I become (?), trapped deep inside, corrupt 'till I die

Corrupt I die, I die, corrupt I die, corrupt 'till I die

You won't be, you can't see, set me free

Not this time, clouded mind, I draw the line

Can I, (can I) become, (become), a shadow?

Will I, (will I), become, (become), a shadow?

Corrupt 'till I die, I die corrupt, corrupt I die, I die corrupt, corrupt I die

What happens in the end, (in the end), my heart will never bend, What happens in the end, (in the end), my heart will never bend

Trapped inside my, trapped inside my, trapped inside my, trapped inside my head

You won't be, you can't see, set me free

Not this time, clouded mind, I draw the line

Can I, (can I) become, (become), a shadow?

Will I, (will I), become, (become), a shadow?

Corrupt 'till I die, I die corrupt, corrupt I die, I die corrupt, corrupt I die
Track Name: Everything I Love
All my life I've tried, to run from the shadow cast by my side, looking back over my shoulder, each step I take feels like it's growing colder

It feels like I will not survive, if only I tried (x2)

You disappoint me somehow, please tell me what it's about, you always try to pretend, that we will just bend, spinning around in full circle, trying to find ways to hurt you, knowing there's one thing I can do

You've taken everything I love, but now I have something to show you


You disappoint me somehow, please tell me what it's about, you always try to pretend, that we will just bend, spinning around in full circle, trying to find ways to hurt you, knowing there's one thing I can do

To make you realize (2), what you've done to me (2)

You've taken everything I love, but now I have something to show you

What I have to offer (to offer), no one wants a part of (a part of) (x2)

Struggling to be me, for an eternity (x2)

All my life I've tried, to run from the shadow cast by my side, looking back over my shoulder, each step I take feels like it's growing colder

The fire from inside, this fire will subside, the fire from inside, this fire from inside, the fire will not subside
Track Name: Disappear
When will I break free from these chains on me?, starting to become, some kind of regiment, this is a darkness that's taken over, sometimes I can't see the light inside of me

Why do I (why do I), Even try (even try), what have I become?, Why do I (why do I), Even try (even try), when you don't notice what I have become

Ripped apart my heart, ripped apart my soul

Nothing matters, nothing disappears, nothing, I can't be, nothing (x3)

Sometimes I can't see the light inside of me

Why do I (why do I), Even try (even try), what have I become?, Why do I even try, why do I even try, when you don't notice what I have become?

Ripped apart my heart, ripped apart my soul

But I can't be, when I don't see, the light that's ripping you, ripping me and everything else apart

But I can't be, when you can't see, where I cannot be is watching you ripping away from the light
Track Name: Mistrust
What have I done to you for you to be this way?, what have you done to destroy me?, why can't you see?, what have I done to have the weight of the world on my shoulders?, what have you done to become a disgrace?, in my life you are hate

Feelings are to hard to hide away, rise above them just to fade away

What have you done to destroy me?, why can't you see?, what have I done to have the weight of the world on my shoulders?

I feel the world on me, bearing down on me, pressures in my veins, building to the point, I break away but still the agony persists to crawl and find it's way back in

Now it's haunting me (x2), will I forgive (x2)

Throwing my heart to the side of me, trying to find just what's left of me, Feelings are to hard to hide away, rise above them just to fade away

Just to fade away (x3), just to fade
Track Name: Out for Blood
We will never fade away, all we ever want is to be okay, we'll see this through, looking in your eyes to find an answer, look into my eyes, we'll be together

Trying to make it better, I'll always want the answer

Now it seems like the world is out for blood, trying to find a way to tear us down, one chance (one chance), one crack (one crack), looking for that little seam

Why do you think everything always has wind up to be this way?, it never ends, reaching down inside, we'll be together, stepping by your side, always, forever

One day, this more than ever, we'll rise and last forever

Now it seems like the world is out for blood, trying to find a way to tear us down, one chance (one chance), one crack (one crack), looking for that little seam

Why won't you just go away? (go away, go away) (x6)
Track Name: Price to Pay
Falling apart, I'm torn at the seams. Right from the start, you'd never know that this was me. Trying so hard, to pull myself together. Playing my card, to change my life forever, My life forever

Wanting to change myself, coming out from this shell, I'll never take life for granted (x2)

Falling apart, I'm torn at the seams. Right from the start, you'd never know that this was me. Trying so hard, to pull myself together. Playing my card, to change my life forever, My life forever

I cannot be this way knowing that there is a price to pay (3)

My life forever

Wanting to change myself, coming out from this shell, I'll never take life for granted (x2)

Nothing's what it seems, nothing's what it seems to be, my life forever

Deep down inside I've swallowed all my pride (x4)
Track Name: Our Last Downfall
I will not come undone, I will not break apart now, I will not be held down, I will not separate (x2)

From myself or my soul (x3), from myself

With my feelings pushed back down, you will tremble before me, you will kneel before me, bow before me, or live in fear

I know you see the darkest night, I know you see the darkest night, darkest night

I will show you now, forever, forever, I will show you now, you will see, what I see, I will show you now, you will not ever feel again, I will show you now, the beast I have become, your world will come undone

With my feelings pushed back down, you will tremble before me, you will kneel before me, bow before me, or live in fear

What will I be, what will I become?

I will show you now, forever, forever, I will show you now, you will see, what I see, I will show you now, you will not ever feel again, I will show you now......

So we will see...(x2)
