Track Name: Contravance
Chained
An automaton
What's the truth
Outside these walls?
Craving
A kind of release
Give me something
I've never...

What's the use?
A machine's a machine
Freedom does not
Compute in this system
This Contravance
This breaking down
Give me something
I've never known

(chorus):
Waiting for
Something to set me free
A brand new dawn
Release
The illegal

Stuck
Without a life
What lies outside
These solid walls?
Yearning
Some kind of escape
Give me something
I've never...

These restraints
Weakening at the base
Breaking slowly
Awakening my heart
Freedom just
An inch outside of reach
Give me something
I've never known

Waiting for
Something to set me free
A brand new dawn
Release
The illegal machine
Time spent wishing
Is time wasted
Wasting for release
Of the Illegal Machine

I'm breaking out
Of these walls
No more chains
to hold me
Not one more day
I swear
No longer in
The dark
I'll see the sky
The clouds
The endless stretch
Of life before me
Take your filth
Your dark and
Give me everything
I've never known

Waiting for
Something to set me free
A brand new dawn
Release
The illegal machine
Time spent wishing
Is time wasted
Wasting for release
Of the Illegal Machine
Track Name: Slow Rights
Ride with fallen angels
Forsake heaven, live in sin
Sing this song of demons
Let our music draw you in
Get your taste of carnage
Work your flesh into the bone
Time betrays a good man
Rights come slow, you're on your own
Ride with fallen angels
Forsake heaven, live in sin
Sing this song of demons
Let our music draw you in


The only way to pass the time
Is to create a nightmare that kills inside
Welcome to a new year, welcome to an old fear
Welcome to a place of disgrace, you shouldn't be here
Darkness descends and fills the hollows
Everything ends, and the darkness we'll follow
With smoke behind us, the hatred will bind us
Slip into the cracks of sleep and slide

Ride with fallen angels
Forsake heaven, live in sin
Sing this song of demons
Let our music draw you in
Get your taste of carnage
Work your flesh into the bone
Time betrays a good man
Rights come slow, you're on your own

Into the bedlam, remember and lachrify
Over the lost ones, you couldn't save them, though your tried
Two weeks for hellos, the same for goodbyes
That's what you get for signing the dotted line
Painful and suffered, to this the result
Is glorified and empty, add an injury to insult
Fear - Power - Pain - Hatred
This is the truth - The lies

Ride with fallen angels
Forsake heaven, live in sin
Sing this song of demons
Let our music draw you in
Get your taste of carnage
Work your flesh into the bone
Time betrays a good man
Rights come slow, you're on your own

Fall
For this
I can't believe
You
Fell for this
They lied to
(You) Fall
For this
I can't believe
You
Fell for this
They lied to
You

Ride with fallen angels
Forsake heaven, live in sin
Sing this song of demons
Let our music draw you in
Get your taste of carnage
Work your flesh into the bone
Time betrays a good man
Rights come slow, you're on your own
Ride with fallen angels
Forsake heaven, live in sin
Sing this song of demons
Let our music draw you in
Get your taste of carnage
Work your flesh into the bone
Time betrays a good man
Rights come slow, you're on your own
Ride with fallen angels
Forsake heaven, live in sin
Sing this song of demons
Let our music draw you in
Get your taste of carnage
Work your flesh into the bone
Time betrays a good man
Rights come slow, you're on your own
Track Name: TearDrops
Half awake and half asleep
Half awake and dreaming
Can't tell what I see through these
Eyes this pouring rain

I fall into a fugue
This temple I have
Ravaged breaking down
This empty illness leaves me
Disappointed now

Half awake and half asleep
Watching shadows crying
Endless malice, minds eye weeps
Let the light come home

I fall into a fugue
This temple I have
Ravaged breaking down
This empty illness leaves me
Disappointed now
My haven now is burning
With it burns my own reality
This wreckage left behind
I hope it ends my pain

I close my eyes, the demons thrive
This nightmare burning deep again
They lacerate, they dig my grave
And fill it
With the tears of ruthless skies
I drown in my own tempest
This hell inside, it rips my mind
Oh, save me Aros

I fall into a fugue
This temple I have
Ravaged breaking down
This empty illness leaves me
Disappointed now
My haven now is burning
With it burns my own reality
This wreckage left behind
I hope it ends my pain

I fall into a fugue
This temple I have
Ravaged breaking down
This empty illness leaves me
Disappointed now
My haven now is burning
With it burns my own reality
This wreckage left behind
I hope it ends my pain

Just let me sleep
Just let me wake
Just let me sleep
Just let me wake

Let the light come home
Let the light come home
Let the light come home
Let the light come home
Track Name: am[END]ment
This is mine
I'd like to
Share it with you
I'd like to share
If you don't mind

A hellfire mist
To bring the
Blackening cancer
To bring am[END]s
to all of this

A darkened chord
For all the
Blistered fingers
For all to be
Known under one

This is me
I unearth myself to see
The mirror from beneath my
Blind eyes
This is me
I unearth myself to be
Another face before my
Blind eyes

Stay with me...
Track Name: Dead House
This is your last five minutes alive
So keep in mind your ideals
The pain of life keeps some alive
But the dead don't breathe
Carve life from the rancid core of your pain
To remind you what it means to live
Destroy your virtue, hide your faith
Still the dead don't breathe

In an attempt to step out, to reach out
The red runs deep, but the silence stays
Deep in the dark, a voice is heard
It's a nightmare, so be afraid
A warning of sorts, a forgotten friend
Buried in blood and a darkening end
Keep it away, or the price is grim
The air is too thin to breathe here

This is your last five minutes alive
So keep in mind your ideals
Destroy your virtue, hide your faith
Still the dead don't breathe

A ritual red cries from cold stones
A step too far and a fallen throne
Black surrounds and a voice, it weeps
It's a nightmare, so be afraid
Buried in blood and a blackened soul
Suicide leads to a bitter judgment
A warning of sorts, a forgotten friend
The air is too thin to breathe here

Take your breath
Catch your breath
Take your breath
Catch your breath

You can't hear the angels
They've forgotten you
Forsaken you
The blood that's on your hands
Is that of angels cries
Blinded eyes are all you get
The pennance won't let God forget
You've thrown away all that He gave, so
Take my hand, for now
We're in the
Dead House

Welcome to the Dead House

It's time for your reckoning

This is your last five minutes alive
So keep in mind your ideals
The pain of life keeps some alive
But the dead don't breathe
Carve life from the rancid core of your pain
To remind you what it means to live
Destroy your virtue, hide your faith
Still the dead don't breathe
This is your last five minutes alive
So keep in mind your ideals
The pain of life keeps some alive
But the dead don't breathe
Carve life from the rancid core of your pain
To remind you what it means to live
Destroy your virtue, hide your faith
Still the dead don't breathe
Track Name: Trichotomic
Comb
Delve into the dark
(My December coming fast)
Bore
Searching for that spark
(Ultimatum sinking in)
We seek answers for the
Questions - we know not
What we do
To attain what we hunt for
is not the way

We can't search forever (search forever)
Because forever just won't come (forever just won't come)
We've been searching for an answer (search for answers)
We've been searching for so long (searching for so long)

Chase
Arguing with fate
(Father, Son, and Holy Ghost)
Faith
Embrace and desecrate
(All to simply understand)
We seek answers for our
Questions - we know not
The cost
Interrogate the mass insofar
We're not satisfied

Searching for our answers
Just to get some peace of mind (piece of mind)
Waiting without reverence
For our absolution (absolution)
Faith is nothing without
Confidence and blind assent (blind assent)
Cut your eyes and see the light

Track Name: Shadows
When life holds your head to the ground,
look up and see the blood around you.
The greener grass is never there.
It seems the fence just disappeared.

When the world comes crashing down upon us,
We spin faster.
Fuck, the end is coming, so let it be.
Look to the shadows to save you.
When the fires of life are at an end,
feed the flames.
Fuck, the end is coming, so let it be.
Look to the shadows to save you.

Hold hands and kiss this one goodbye.
Look around at the darkness creeping in.
Whats this life for anyway?
Fuck it, now it's over.

When the world comes crashing down upon us,
We spin faster.
Fuck, the end is coming, so let it be.
Look to the shadows to save you.
When the fires of life are at an end,
feed the flames.
Fuck, the end is coming, so let it be.
Look to the shadows to save you.

Let it be.
Come see the world as the rest of us know it.
Let it be.
Dark, alone and shallow.
Let it be.
We are prisoners to this darkness.

But when...

When the world comes crashing down upon us,
We spin faster.
Fuck, the end is coming, so let it be.
Look to the shadows to save you.
When the fires of life are at an end,
feed the flames.
Fuck, the end is coming, so let it be.
Look to the shadows to save you.
