Track Name: Consequences
I am the ill ease you feel when you walk in an empty room / I am creative energy in human form / This city is afraid of me / I have seen it’s true colours / History will be kind to me as I am the one who writes it / I will be the anarchy / My days are numbered / And have never seen the light / I am filled with fear and without control / My life is haunted / I am scared for my soul / Welcome to my pathetic way of life / This is the end of the world / My eyes are red with fear / When will it all stop / I am trying to perceive the point / Everyone will suffer the same consequences / Walk with me / You will see / We are all the same in the eyes of above / Everyone will suffer the same consequences / Everyone will suffer
Track Name: Psychotic
All my life / I have felt like I’m nothing / Now all I want is everything / My emotions have built up / And now they overflow / This is not me / All my life / I have felt like I’m nothing / Now all I want is everything / My emotions have built up / And now they overflow / This is not me / I feel the worst / When I’m alone / Because that’s when / The monsters in my head / They say hello / They say hello / You’ll never figure this out / You are the reason my world is filled with hate / Will you listen? / Don’t let the darkness take over your mind / You must trust yourself and your beliefs / We can’t live in fear anymore / Intelligence is the key / To saving the human race / Intelligence is the key / To saving the human race / You need to suffer / Psychotic / All my life / I have been psychotic / All my life / I have felt like I’m nothing / Now all I want is everything / My emotions have built up / And now they overflow / This is not me
Track Name: Despotism
Read through these lines / Learn the passage of our lives / And forget everything you’re accustomed to / Lost are our souls and our immortality / Found is the hate in the air you are bound to breathe / Survival of the fittest / We can’t see past the walls of fright until / We envision a better life / The only practice one ought to teach / Never submit to reality / If you find yourself asking what’s the point / You should end it now / Come to me and you will see / What it’s all about / If you find yourself asking what’s the point / You should end it now / Come to me and you will see / What it’s all about / Never let them decide / We control our fucking lives / Never let them decide / We control our fucking lives / Despotism / We will watch them fail Watch them all fall / We will watch them all watch them all fucking choke / Despotism
Track Name: Don't You Want To Feel At Peace
Don’t you feel exhausted? / Don’t you want to feel at peace? / The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams / The beauty of their dreams / It’s time to let go / Of everything you’ve ever known / The only fear in life is the fear of yourself / I will not follow you into / The darkness / We know are our minds / Deep in thought I conjure my plan / Escape with my memories / And my consciousness intact / I have lost myself / Bring me back from this pain / Make me whole again / Free me of my anger / Free me of myself / I don’t want this anymore / Why? / Why? / Why am I so alone? / Failure is the only opportunity / To begin again / Only this time I will be / More wise and in control / It will hurt you / You will want to give up / But don’t you ever fucking give up on me / I will never give in
Track Name: Running In Circles
Don’t give up on a dream / Just because of the time it will take to achieve / The time will pass anyway / It’s never too late / To become what you might have been / Don’t fall into the trap of the Labyrinth / Don’t give up on a dream / Just because of the time it will take to achieve / The time will pass anyway / It’s never too late / To become what you might have been / Have you ever been scared for your life / Have you ever had to run away and leave it all behind / Have you ever felt like you are running in circles / Welcome to my life / Forgotten the path that I forever chose to walk / And as I fall down to my worthless knees / I feel the air fill me and bring relief / But why do I feel so pathetic / Don’t give up on a dream / Just because of the time it will take to achieve / The time will pass anyway / It’s never too late / To become what you might have been / You are the constant / Life is in your hands / You are the constant
Track Name: Nightmare
Thieves and liars / My emotions have ruled my life for too long / I’ve held them in for the safety of others / Now I scream and release my pain and my fear / Into this world / What do you want / From this life / It is not a game / I need you to feel what I am saying / I need you to understand that there is more / Now fill your lungs with the truth and question yourself / What do you believe I / Fuck being told how to live my life / I will build my own reputation / Fuck it up / Then build it up again / I am the outcast / When will we be free / When will we be free / From this man made nightmare / You are not the answer to my prayers / I have lost myself to the shadows / The past creeping up on me / Killing me from the inside out / Creating a monster / I need you to feel what I am saying / I need you to understand that there is more / Now fill your lungs with the truth and question yourself / What do you believe in / What do you want from this life / What do you believe in / I would never tell you to go to hell / I’d rather have the pleasure of sending you there myself / I would never tell you to go to hell / I’d rather have the pleasure of sending you there myself
Track Name: Past Is Forever
I / I am insane / I have no control over / I am a freak / I am nowhere near normal / I am so tired / So emotionally drained / I cannot sleep / With all the throbbing / I cannot control the thoughts that go through my head / All I can do is control how I react / Because I don’t want this world to suffer the pain I have had all my life / In vain / Never push me too far / Once I turn my back I never return / I will let my guard down / What fucks up most in life is the picture in our heads / What have I become / A slave to my fucking past / We are slaves / We are slaves to our fucking pasts / Our past may haunt us / But it does not define us / This is your way out / No longer a slave to your past / The past never dies / I have fought to survive and not give in / I have lost so much of what I love / Now it’s my turn / To take back / From this world / I will finally have my revenge / I have learnt my lesson / Never will I repeat the mistakes of my past / The past haunts you until your days are done / My past eats me alive / Now I stand on my own two feet / Free to think / Free to do as I please / Now I stand on my own two feet / Free to think / Free to do as I please / I would rather be a freak then be considered a fucking fake
Track Name: The Process Of Autonomy
Here I stand / Upon your ashes / And the ashes of your fallen victims / I am now elite / My subjugation / Unfurled this irony to a form a hell I was sworn to adopt and protect / I will never be the fucking same again / I will never be the man I once was / This is my curse / My resentment entitlement foretold / To what I had been feeding all along / With my one true voice / To withstand your pressure / Was to succumb to my will / With the conscious of my thought you will / Descend into the flames where the end will swiftly come / Listen to me / This cursed dominion / Committed to my defeat / Completion of a subsystem / These violations do indeed / Ensure your consequences will induce nothingness / I'll ensure your consequences will induce nothingness / Although it seems your time has elapsed / Eternity indeed has passed its purpose / to deny you / of your fucking existence / A sacrifice to defeat has had you on your goddamn knees / In the ruins of time / There exists but one profit / You are ensnared by the process of autonomy now your kind shall meet its fate / You are ensnared by the process of autonomy now your kind shall meet its fate / You are ensnared by the process of autonomy now your kind shall meet its fate / You are ensnared by the process of autonomy now your kind shall meet its fate / For all the torment whence came these values / My support is strong and it has worn into the truth / They have left you all alone / For what you have done
Track Name: I Am Haunted
I question myself and my existence / I find no answers / What is the point / I am so frightened of what I might find / I force myself to stop / Struggle with my own thoughts until I can go no longer / Nothing will ever bring me down / The only laws I follow are the voices in my head / There will be no repent for the ones I have hurt / And for that I am sorry / There will be no repent for the ones I have hurt / And for that I am sorry / My sadness and anguish / Covered with a smile / My whole life ruled with fear / I am not who I say I am / You cannot trust anyone / Why do I continue to lie and hurt the people closest to me / It does not make any sense to me / I feel so cold and so angry / The hate takes over me / I begin to breathe heavily and my thoughts turn dark / These times are too often and becoming too much / I am searching for a cure / For a way to be normal / I am terrified of what I might do if I stop holding it all in / If I don’t / What will happen to this world / I am haunted / For all of my life / Living with what I’ve done / I have the cure / I know how to break the fucking curse for once and all / I am haunted / For all of my life / Living with what I’ve done / I have the cure / I know how to break the fucking curse for once and all
