Track Name: Of Falsity and Whoredom
She's back again
I close my eyes and swallow the pain I feel
This can't be real
She wants it now
I've got to find my way out somehow
(Somehow)

She's the salt in my wounds
Their hearts collapse before her now
How could you?
She betrays in rags on body-bags
Of lives that once revolved around her
(They revolved around her)

She's back again
Three months later it's the same old worn-out
She kisses my neck and begs for more
Her smile is lies and deceit
Masquerading a love for me
Somehow
(Somehow)

She's the flesh on their bones
Those who swore they'd die for her
An ironic matter
She lies in homes of broken souls
But still, she lives
And so it begins

Now, your time has come
So go enjoy the last night of your life
How, how could you do this?
A fool, I loved you

(Our father who art in heaven, hallowed be they name
Burn the blood of this demon whore, make her realise this pain)
Your time is running out, your time is running out
Your time is running out, your time is running out

(Come, swear it, damn thyself. Lest being like one of heaven, the devils themselves should fear to seize thee.
Therefore be double-damned. Swear thou art honest!
For heaven truly knows that thou art as false as Hell!)

How could you?
How could you do this to me?
How could you?
How could you?
I bled your name, I bled your name
Demon, slanderer
Whore!
Whore!
Track Name: Last Words
I hope your writhe and you cry
Light a fire inside my mind to burn away this desire
I hope you bleed and scream
Because what's right for you is right for me
Can't you see?

I am a machine, I am a machine
I am a machine, I am a machine

Bleed, bleed, bleed for me
Bleed, bleed, bleed for me, bleed

One day you'll writhe and you'll cry
Track Name: I Want You Dead
I don't know how you could do this to me
Do you own a conscience?

It always prays on my mind
Did it feel good, baby?
Did it feel good?

I want you dead, I want you dead

Crying bitch, this knife's already past your vitals

I want you dead, I want you dead
I want you dead, I want you dead
Track Name: 300
Did the world turn on its head while I was sleeping?
(You held me up so high, you held me up so high)
All those opportunities, suddenly the last one's leaving
(You held me up so high, you held me up so high)

So many promises, you gave the world to me
You told me I was yours, why couldn't I see?
So many promises, you threw them back at me
How could you ruin us? Now you mean nothing to me

I gave it all to you, you promised me the sky
Then tore it all away, how much was a lie?
I gave it all for you, I left my friends to die
You ruined me and now I'm left behind

Almost a year now, since I saw your smile
(You held me up so high, you held me up so high)
You lost me in your eyes, I can't believe that you're gone
And you'll never be the one


So many promises, you gave the world to me
You told me I was yours, why couldn't I see?
So many promises, you threw them back at me
How could you ruin us? Now you mean nothing to me

I gave it all to you, you promised me the sky
Then tore it all away, how much was a lie?
I gave it all for you, I left my friends to die
You ruined me and now I'm left behind

How could you take my life and leave it all as ash?
This cycle won't end, mine ends by broken glass
Broken glass
Track Name: Cretaceous Beast
Roaming the Earth, land of Pangaea
Brings devastation with every footstep
Helpless prey, the scent of blood fills its lungs

The land of blood, survival is a daily dance
Brutal existence
Predatory, disembowling beast of the past

Lightning fast, a creature of habit
Guts and eats its prey
Leaving only a skeletal carcass
Putrid, diseased

Gullet shredded, this creature lived so recently
Its flesh torn out rabidly, entrails strewn on the ground

Hunting the young, the weak who cannot run

Our world of blood and body-counts is blindingly similar
To a time where monsters reigned governmentless

Vicious beast, symbol of demise
The end will come from the sky
Track Name: The Doctrine
Scriptures from ancient times leading us to believe that there is something more
Man forever searching to find ascendance to the afterlife

Domination takes its form as we walk towards the end of man
Unholy solutions pray on the mind
Man of God

Sons of holy men ravaging the world of its beliefs
Gods who would walk among us seclude themselves from their own doing

Domination takes its form as we walk towards the end of man
Unholy solutions pray on the mind
Man of God
Man of God
