Track Name: Grievances
Intro: With reckless abandon they come, horde after horde, yet they say were the ones waging this war, so under blackened skies, and above seas of red, we will bring them fury, and with that fury, we will bring them their death

There's never any revenge in the bloodshed of your so called enemy, the losses never cease, sacrifice never ends, but we can't break if we don't bend.
Behind closed eyes the carnage wages on, behind closed eyes I've lost where I belong, fear will ruin the very best of us, humanity falls to bloodlust.
Ends justify means, words can't repair actions, when all we serve is your bottom line, Our fate's decided before a shot is fired, dead or alive, no one survives.
Protecting your freedoms will surely cost us ours, for there is no slaying these demons, these grievances will never be heard, these grievances will never be heard.
Track Name: Black Hole
Now you've taken for granted, everything I offered you, feeling broken and shattered, broken and shattered.
Now the pain that dwells inside, broken feelings I can't hide, take them away, take them away, anger inside of my soul, inside my soul, inside my soul, Nothing lasts forever, changed me more than ever, the hate, the pain, the fear of losing it all, the hate, the pain, the fear, of losing it all, now this time I will not take this for granted.
Feel the hate that I bring, you stole my everything, tear me down again, anger grows from within.
All of my life, all of my life, it's you I despise, you I despise, All of my life, all of my life, it's you I despise, you I despise.
I breathe a sigh of relief......
Feel the hate that I bring, you stole my everything, tear me down again, anger grows from within.
All of my life, all of my life, it's you I despise, you I despise, All of my life, all of my life, it's you I despise, you I despise.
I will not live a lie, by being by your side, I will not live a lie, by being by your side.
Track Name: Merciless
How could I ever forget, the thoughts inside my head, knowing that this is the end, how could I ever forget, trapped for so long, just trying to hold on, down on my knees, feeling diseased, I'm sickened, tormented and broken.
I stumbled onto the righteous path that led me here, washing away all sings of sympathy, no one can ever take away those lies, that bled from you.
No, not this time, you will get yours, I will get mine, No, not this time, you will get yours, I will get mine.
Burnt into my eyes for everyone to see, nothing left but hollow memories, my skin still crawls with every single word, that comes out your filthy mouth.
No, not this time, you will get yours, I will get mine, No, not this time, you will get yours, I will get mine.
Feeling all of the sadness, feeling all of the waste, everyday is the same, everyday you were to blame......Now it's my turn.
I'll turn you inside out, make your soul quiver, I'll be the one that haunts you, your little sliver, your little sliver, your little sliver.
Track Name: That Look of Worry on Your Face
This darkness from within has taken over again, a fearless, heartless force that lingers long after the damage is done, and the regrets start building, until it starts to sink in, that this was never about me, and now I can't stop seeing that look of worry on your, and now I can't stop hearing the words, that never left my mouth, seeing that look of worry on your, and now I can't stop hearing the words, that never left my mouth.
Hiding beneath a veil of concrete, lies the warmth of a thousand burning suns, that have begun to wither and grow cold, nothing endures the sun ceasing to burn, now we put our trust, in a broken system, a system that's built on the blind, leading the blind.
More questions than answers, more questions than answers, more questions than answers.
Is this all it takes to leave us obsolete? Were we ever meant to avoid this defeat?
Every single word, is a chance to dream, but dream we must not, we may start to believe, that we ever had a chance, that we ever had a chance, that we ever had a chance, to feel the warmth of the sun again. That look of worry on your face, a perfect picture, of our disgrace.
Hiding beneath a veil of concrete, lies the warmth of a thousand burning suns, that have begun to wither and grow cold, nothing endures the sun ceasing to burn, now we put our trust, in a broken system, a system that's built on the blind, leading the blind.
More questions than answers, more questions than answers, more questions than answers.
Is this all it takes to leave us obsolete? Were we ever meant to avoid this defeat?
Track Name: Disassembled
These tired eyes will not sleep tonight, for they have seen the truth that I have held from the world, Building walls that were bound to fall, for one cannot hold these burden's I've endured.
Disassembled, for all to see.
Scattered in my wake are traces of, the hope filled honest man I used to be, overtaken, by vice and vanity, after a life of dead ends and empty hands.
Disassembled, for all to see.
Crippled I now lay, in this bed I made, undeserving of the love, I so often crave, guilt washes over me and life flashes before my eyes, shadows crawl ever closer, forming shapes that I recall, darkened portraits of all those that I have wronged, my punishment fits the crime, disassembled for all to see, disassembled for all to see.
Piece by piece I am now free, as I fall away, this is not a dream, this is not a dream, piece by piece I am now free, as I fall away, this is not a dream, this is not a dream.
The oceans rise, as fire fills the sky, a paradise in darkness, my kingdom come, the oceans rise, as fire fills the sky, a paradise in darkness, my kingdom come.
A solace overcomes me, that I could never find, disassembled, for all to see, disassembled, for all to see.
