Shattered Hearts The pain I feel still hurts me to this day The pain inside still feels exactly the same As the second you moved on, the moment you were taken away Years from now I ask my self Will I ever see you again? Years from now I ask my self Will I ever feel your love again? Feel your love again? Time continues to pass us on by As others move on and others continue to die The memories of you will never fade away As long as my love for your still remains I have forever lost my saviour The only love that I ever truly knew I can’t seem to find my place Or know where I seem to belong Years from now I ask my self Will I ever see you again? Years from now I ask my self Will I ever feel your love again? Why is it that some of us left here Losing our minds after loved ones have died Why is that I am left picking up the pieces Of shattered hearts and broken minds Shattered hearts and minds Feel free to explain to me Explain to me Feel free to enlighten me Enlighten me Your memory will forever remain The love you gave to me will never be changed Your memories will be with me till my last day My heart will stay with you until the day that I meet my grave Time continues to pass us on by As others move on and others continue to die The memories of you will never fade away As long as my love for your remains

Black Tie Stigma Greed fuels consumption whores A never ending thirst, from the product of the poor The system fails, yet they still succeed Slaves work to death to satisfy the need Factories made, like prison walls As peasants work, upon beckon and call No refuge, just supply and demand Windows barred from exit, with profits in hand Days grow longer Master’s call grows louder What is left, you choose not to believe The price of design, despair you cannot see Every blood stained stitch, a cost you must bare To make a saving, on money never shared On money never shared Factories made No refuge Like prison walls Just supply and demand As peasants work Windows barred from the inside Upon beckon and call With profits in your hand Days grow longer His call grows louder Factories made, no refuge Like prison walls, just supply and demand As peasants work, windows barred from the inside Upon beckon and call, with profits in your hand With profits in your hand

Greed Agreement The ones that we've elected to lead Are up to their old tricks of under table secrets and greed The ones that we've elected to lead Are still the same ones that are lying to you and me? We all know how this circus works The ones in suits will help this world burn Opinions views and our lives, better off not seen heard or recognised Locked away behind closed doors Thinking we won't hear them at all All of their lies will come to surface For their profit the public will wear it We all know how this circus works The ones in suits will help this world burn Opinions views and our lives, better off not seen heard or recognised If this vicious cycle remains the same The world will end up burning in flames We will all be the ones to blame, We are the ones who control our fate If we just sit here nothing will change, We will all be the ones to blame The world spins on money, lies and hate You and I will be the ones to wear the blame Time and time again, this evil rears its ugly head Taking everything it believes we should share We are the only ones who seem to pay the ultimate sacrifice The rich keep on getting richer and the poor well they’re just left to die This shit we are drowning in, is reaching boiling point We are slowly running out of places to cower and hide I’d rather take up arms then roll over and die Least that way when they bury me, they will know I brought hell into all of their lives. The end of corruption is finally happening one by one Your riches mean nothing to me, when your judgement finally comes The end of corruption is finally happening one by one Your riches mean nothing to me, in the eyes of the world you're fucking guilty! If this vicious cycle remains the same The world will end up burning in flames We will all be the ones to blame, We are the ones who control our fate If we just sit here nothing will change, We will all be the ones to blame The world spins on money, lies and hate You are going to feel all our pain You will feel this!

A QUESTION OF FAITH The world as we know it is starting to change Spiritual evolution in its final stage There is nothing you can do to stop the sway As mindless drones bow their head to pray Blindly following their so called faith All the rules and the sins they convey Will condemn man kind to eternal flames And set this world ablaze Leaders of faith That you trust Will lead the life Gluttony and lust It's their way of Controlling all of us? Finally we come with our open eyes Fighting with the power of our own minds Faith had you believe in a book that brings us higher love Scribed on the pages with innocent blood Finally we come with our open eyes Fighting with the power of our own minds A constant war fought upon false beliefs Will bring nothing but terror, pain and grief We no longer need holy ideals to survive Until the day the hand reaches out from the sky We will continue to call you out on your lies The truth will come to us in due time When I exhale my last breath To move on from this life to the next Take my hand one last time I will show you the truth when we die Finally we come with our open eyes Fighting with the power of our own minds Faith had you believe in a book that brings us higher love Scribed on the pages with innocent blood Finally we come with our open eyes Fighting with the power of our own minds A constant war fought upon false beliefs Will bring nothing but terror, pain and grief Finally we come with our open eyes Fighting with the power of our own minds Faith had you believe in a book that brings us higher love Scribed on the pages with innocent blood Finally we come with our open eyes Fighting with the power of our own minds A constant war fought upon false beliefs Will bring nothing but terror, pain and grief

Asher’s Lullaby Take a step, in the ground, you believer See the light of the past grow weaker Break the ties, from the ones that betrayed There is no one left to save Trust your heart, dream of love and then it’s taken What you thought came to life, left you broken You gave yourself, received a gift so tainted Now it’s one mess for the making The pain inside you grows Release it from the world you know Take it down; strap it up in your final judgement You hear it laughing, yet its mouth stays frozen Pour the gas, light the match, salvation's closer It is the fear that brings you closure The pain inside you grows Release it from the world you know A gift from the one that you hate, is a symbol of your one last mistake? You can leave it to rot or let your instincts guide you? Time grows short, seconds draw, why are you waiting? You done right, now been wronged, Tension courses Through your mind, you’re out of options. It is time for the unmaking? There it sits, in your room, in peace waiting, Broken pieces, a reminder unforgotten. Take it down, to a place, no one will hear. Your gift, to do as you care. The pain inside you grows Release it for the grandest show. I gave you my heart, the very essence of my being But it didn’t make you stay I couldn’t make you see me I believed every word Every promise in your lies Now I need you to remind me, what it is to feel alive I’m convinced that there’s no way out From the fate that I deserve I feel as though I’m changing now I’m not sure that you know me I sit Comfortable within this pain I would love for you to join me Let your betrayal be my release One final salute to your deceit Let there be solace within these flames This is all for you Take it down; strap it up in your final judgement You hear it laughing, yet its mouth stays frozen Pour the gas, light the match, salvation's closer. It is the fear that brings you closure. The pain inside you grows Release it from the world you know. A gift from the one you hate It is yours to do what you say, Watch it all burn away In eternal flames Watch it all burn away

MY ENDLESS LOVE In the back of my psyche In the depths of despair You will find me stalking Awaiting you there Conflicted by ones purpose With chaos in mind You are the sweetest gift that The devil could find But no innocence can reside Captured in a tortured mind Evil here is all you will find In a body of such beauty The scent of your flesh Sends shivers right to my spine As I cut your heart from your chest Temper your sorrow Silence your cries No one is leaving Here alive You were my obsession Cravings have grown I must have you All to my own As fate twists its tail around your neck The life leaves through your eyes It was never for god to decide Who lives and who dies It has And will always, be mine The scent of your flesh drives me insane Your rotten corpse still continues to decay The blood in your veins starts to coagulate My love for you still remains

Vultures of Virtue They are pulling the plug Turning off the power The weak hide behind a pixel wall We will shout the loudest chorus Where the heroic start to fall You are self-entitled And self-righteous You are no longer correct This title that you hold on to No longer has the same effect They are pulling the plug Turning off the power They hide from all our vision They all want us to see They all want us to hear They sure as hell don’t want us to feel There are no rules in a world Without boundaries No walls to keep them contained The faceless and nameless keep chanting our names All of your opinions Will amount to nothing Everything you know Doesn’t make you someone Everything you feel Doesn’t need a forum One billion whispers, trying to be heard Who really cares? They are pulling the plug Turning off the power They hide from all our vision They all want us to see They all want us to hear They sure as hell don’t want us to feel

Thredson 04:36
Thredson What is it that seems to be wrong? It keeps getting harder for me to feel wanted Or find a place to belong Your affection is what I need Your unconditional love is all that I seek My existence is a mistake you will not forget A reminder of choices that you regret It was never me that asked for this life I never asked for the constant tears to spill from my eyes My heart is empty from the constant spewing of poisonous lies If I could change it all I’d make you live your life like it was mine My existence is a mistake that you would rather forget A reminder of one choice that you will forever regret Why does hate seem to be the only thing? That makes the loneliness disappear deep from within Why is it every time I dream of you? I want take your life and destroy it right in front of you Your life Destroy it

Devil You Know (Devil we created) Never held accountable for such acts of treason Now we are stranded, trapped in a lie Every chance of salvation is slowly passing us by. Is this the way that you envisioned to die? The jokers and the thieves March in their masquerade They have been lying to you and me The world’s in decay Their guns are pointed in our direction You see the enemy in your reflection The words of truth that have been spoken Will be the next ones in line to be broken Their guns are pointed in our direction Now we are lambs to the slaughter In our own doomsday parade The devil now walks among us And chaos now rules supreme Nations crumble at the seams Watch as the people of this earth fall to their knees Without a messiah to be seen No one is absolved from the coming of the bloodshed Defeated sings the chorus as bombs line the skies You invited death into all of our lives Arms wide open you welcomed your demise We are the ones who let death inside Their guns are pointed in our direction You see the enemy in your reflection The words of truth that have been spoken Will be the next ones in line to be broken Their guns are pointed in our direction Now we are lambs to the slaughter in our own doomsday parade

Redemption 05:21
REDEMPTION Finally someone has answered the call This world has been screaming out for someone to save them all With reason and logic its balance we bring to restore The tide we are in is starting to change as waves begin to break on us all We have heard the fear in your calls We are here now to save you all We as the people have held our tongues for way to long We as the people are fed up with the bullshit that you’re trying to feed us It is time for us to rise up and reclaim the power we lack The world belongs to us and we are here to finally claim it back Enough is enough Stand together with us Unite as one Destroy what is silencing us Destroy the monsters that we created That thing that was created from our hatred Destroy the titans that we created Pull down the pillars of their safe haven The time of change is finally upon us The fear that you live with Will no longer control us Free from the shackles of bias control We are now ready to break free from the tyrants hold We cannot be stopped You have lost control of every single one of us We have destroyed your chains of restraint For the wrongs you have done You will pay The freedom that we fight for is finally in our grasp Through persistence we have finally taken the power back We have heard the fear in your calls We are here now to save you all The time of change is finally upon us The fear that you live with Will no longer control us Free from the shackles of bias control We are ready to break free the tyrants hold The time of change is finally upon us The fear that you live with Will no longer control us
