Track Name: Ajan loppu - Taivaan Alla
:: TAIVAAN ALLA ::

Katso taivaalle.
Merkit tähtien.
On aika lähteä
käsi kädessä sateista polkua

Vasten yötä
sateista polkua.
Ei loppua näy
kun kanssasi käyn.

Käsi kädessä
kanssasi matkaan.
Ei loppua näy,
ei loppua näy.

Käsi kädessä
kanssasi matkaan.
Vain kahdestaan.
Enkä päästä otettain lipsumaan

Kuitenkin jotain käy ja hellität otteesi.
Nyt pilvet halkeaa,
otteeni irtoaa,
ylös jäät.

Minä kauas näen.
Mutta nyt
katoat korkeuksiin.

Kuitenkin löysin takaisin
huomaamaan,
että maan pinnalla
kävelet kanssa jonkun muun.
Kuitenkin kävelin takaisin.
Track Name: ALONE - Turning Into You
:: TURNING INTO YOU ::
Track Name: Annulment - Aurelian Pivot
:: AURELIAN PIVOT ::

Idle hands erected the fences, God’s eye blue like illness –
to abandon vast love; “it can happen to anyone.”
Hands that hold mine to sever others,
but how long before; how long before?
Climb the ironies of Jacob’s ladder.
“Then they came for me, because there was no one left.”
There was no one left.

The bait of temptation, a sugared tongue –
fixed in inversion; miters of mixed blood.
Tyrant-selves; my ear’s black whisper –
Giovinezza, La Marcha Granadera.
Opiate poetry; destroy me –
“Youth, youth – spring of beauty.”
And when the dawn came for us, it bleached our skin;
autonomous incest – we are the Romans.

“Steal, take, ascend – this entire world is yours, nothing exists but you.”
I am Ivory Devil, burrowing his blighted roots in the soil –
the pregnancy of golden wings; distillation of every womb;
washed in parchment as the pivot of history itself.

Perversions of cruelty unwilling to die.
Copulating, birthed coercion.
Perversions of cruelty unwilling to die.
Copulating, it manifests inside.

Spoken with stagnant breath.

It’s not flesh we see but intent we know;
our minds poisoned in urgent halves, transfixed by a malleable sky.
Smother me in the ruin of our pantheons with that same coldness,
lest I open my throat and flood the Arkless world with red.
Track Name: Arise - Liberation
:: LIBERATION ::

Marching to their death
Enslaved their whole life
Slaughtered in the billions
For no reason than being different

Innocent beings we hear your cries
Freedom is your right
Liberation of the animals
This is why we fight

No act of kind for they are not our kind?

Hypocrite
Lier
Speciesist enabler
Monstrous
Heartless
Speciesist fucker

I refuse to stand by and watch innocent die
Why must we turn the other away and deny so many lives

VEGAN
Track Name: Back X Burner - Pay Your Dues
:: PAY YOUR DUES ::

I feel anger myself
Just like anyone else
But this bullshit you do
Only hurts, doesn't help
The damage is done
I feel shame for the rest
Under the pressure of a gun
Without a vest
I pray to the sky
That I will escape death
But with my luck
I'll end up like the rest
I feel pressure and rage
But this soon will pass

This chain link squad
Will put you to the test
Held back by sin and hurt
You can't clean up the mess
This chain link squad
Will be the death of you
You can't hide
You pay your dues
Track Name: Bloodbather - The Hunt
:: THE HUNT ::

Throwing distractions to avoid what's real
Manipulation before my eyes
Think that you're clever, believing you're safe
I see right through your disguise

I need to feel
The crushing of your skull

The hunt has started

With the circumstances there's no excuse, your pawns will turn on you
There will be no shelter, from the consequences

Words still aren't enough to paint, my need
My need to end your world

The hunt, the hunt has started
Track Name: Born As Lions - Wolfpath
:: WOLFPATH ::

I am here alone outside with myself
In the middle of this endless world I will search
I walk alone through thunder and storm
Into the deepest caves and holes I will crawl
To find the wolfpath

I am the ash-grey wolf
I do not search I perceive
I am one of them who’s digging in the dirt
To find something that is worth to
Worth to die for
Worth to fall for
To fight and bleed

Lose yourself and then come back well
Stronger than ever wiser than everyone else
Wander and roam to the end of this world
And bury everything that sticks tight to you

But when the rock’s tower up
And it looks like no way will lead you out
Sometimes the only way to rise
You have to fall into the deepest caves
And then climb back out

Lose yourself and then come back well
Stronger than ever wiser than everyone else
Wander and roam to the end of this world
And bury everything that sticks tight to you

And when the path you choose leads into nothing
Then the time has come to rise
Use this gift

Listen to the wolf in you
And your world will change
Forever, no matter what will come to you

Listen to the wolf in you
And shout out loud
As loud as you can
Till the whole world will know you
Track Name: Brainwreck - Downward Drift
:: DOWNWARD DRIFT ::

This pushing and pulling's going to tear me apart
A constant battle of the mind
Was it nature or nurture?
Was the foundation shattered from the start?
Now descending into a blackened hell
Blind eyes hide plight
Now we drift into the depths, to the edges of what's left
This world is on its head
Lost minds, broken lives
This world is on its head
Lost minds, broken lives
Out of mind, out of sight
Tortured soul
Fragmented mind
You could never feel what I feel inside
Track Name: Burning Season - Our Dissolution
:: OUR DISSOLUTION ::
Track Name: Circle Back - Combat Wounds
:: COMBAT WOUNDS ::

Kill your perception. That life is always scratching and clawing at your wounds. Everyday I wake up. To the smell of bitter perfume. And my body goes back to constantly gagging. Over a subtle fate. Consumed in a world of misery. Drowning in all of this hate. Help me this time. To strain my mind. Down to the wire. I'll keep holding on. Down to the wire. Thankful for life. Down to the wire. Through the darkest nights. The candle still burns. But fate's jaws are locking tight. Surrounding me as I gasp for air. The final moments of clarity fade away. Leave the light on.
Track Name: Clearer the Sky - Pirriesmill
Given to darkness
Colder now, with weakness I cry out
How I hope my outlook will change

I once was young
Slight of frame, but it mattered not
For the world wasn't so heavy back then

Darkness won't consume me
Hatred won't become me
Weakness won't befall me
I WILL NOT BE COLD

It seems so bleak inside my thoughts
And those rays seem faint, but I tell you this
I think the light is winning
Track Name: Dead Weight - Pressure
:: PRESSURE ::
Track Name: Departed - Hell On Earth
:: HELL ON EARTH ::
Track Name: Distaste - Judgment
:: JUDGEMENT ::

Always at war
Always on the attack
Resisting their foolish lies
And always biting back
Never had the heart or chose for yourself
Accept their mask in defeat
A veil for what's underneath
Losing the will to bite my tongue
Every ounce of your heart now lost
Year of judgment.
Track Name: Dive to Survive - The World Of Yours
:: THE WORLD OF YOURS ::

HATRED FOR PEOPLE IN YOUR HEAD – TRAP FOR A PULSED TIME
STAND ON THE EDGE – FORGET ME
DURING THE TALK ABOUT THE GREAT, WE CEASE TO NOTICE PRIME
STAND ON THE EDGE – FORGET ME
YOU’RE SET TO BELIEVE EVERYTHING IS CHANGING
YOU ARE READY TO EMBRACE AND PROMISE
STILL HESITATE IT IS SINCERE – IS IT SINCERE?
AFTER ALL THE DEEDS AND ALL THE FREEZING DREAMS
HOLD YOUR BREATH
HOLD YOUR BREATH TO DIVE BENEATH THE PROBLEMS
IT UNITES US ABOVE ALL
IT STRENGTHEN US, OUR BLOOD AND SOUL
FIND THE GUTS TO PLUNGE BELOW THE DARKNESS
THEN DAWN WILL SING THE SONGS FOR YOU
THE BRIGHTEST STARS WILL LIGHT YOUR WAY
YOUR FAMILY WILL WARM YOUR HEART WITH CARE
AND HELP TO BUILD THE BRIGHTEST OF THE WORLDS
THE WORLD OF YOURS
LONG WAY BEHIND MY BACK
THE ENDLESS PATH THAT WAITS FOR ME
THEY MAKE ME MUCH MORE SANE AND WISE
MAKE THE NEXT STEP RIGHT
THIS GREAT VORTEX IS OUR LIFE
HERE EVEN GREAT SHIPS CAN COLLAPSE
THEY MAKE ME MUCH MORE SANE AND WISE
MAKE THE NEXT STEP RIGHT
Track Name: Divided Life - Deteriorate
:: DIVIDED LIFE ::

You spent all your life
Hiding in the clouds.
Running from who you
Really are.
Self-destructive coward
Weak and spineless tool
Running is easy,
When you're sick of yourself.

Teeth in the ground

Rotting

Vomiting self-loathing
In my mouth.
Slit your wrists and
Pull veins out.
I will not stand by and watch you die.
Blood pours out
Blood pours out

Teeth in the ground

Rotting

Oh, I can feel it.
The pain of living.
When it crosses my mind,
When the only comforting thought is suicide.

Oh, I can feel it.
The pain.
Not Healing.
When it crosses my mind,
When the only comforting thought is suicide

Your mind is a fucking hole
That you will never escape.

I
Watched
You
Die
Track Name: Drown In Grey - Give Them What They Want
:: GIVE THEM WHAT THEY WANT ::

there’s no question of guiltiness
no one asks how this will end
there’s one answer: abasement
our gods are supply and demand

there’s no sign of confidence
no one asks, how this will end
take a bath in the blood of the weak
our gods are supply and demand

give them what they want
give them what they want

tell me what to feel
tell me who to hate
please
let me play with you
I accept the rules
please
Track Name: Earth Down - Slave To Fate
:: SLAVE TO FATE ::

The look of fear in your eyes lets me know that you're afraid of life
You fucking coward, you fucking snake
Six feet under's where you'll fucking lay
You turned your back on me, you're all you've got
Stuck in your head, there alone with your thoughts
Nowhere to run, no place to call home
You turned the gun on you, alone you will roam

Blood will shed and shake the earth
Fragile minds decay, rebirth
Hope no more, a cause unfed
Blissful thoughts are fucking dead

Your dug your grave, there alone you'll lay
No life to lead, in the abyss you'll fade
Cut down with nothing left to display
Open heart, but a mind decayed

Friend to death
Slave to fate
Save your breath
Fucking waste of space

Cut down with nothing left to display
Open heart, but a mind decayed
Only thoughts to move on, no words to say

What's mine is mine and what's yours I'll take
Track Name: Earthmother - Ugly
:: UGLY ::

don't look at me
symmetry find me first
imperfect stain
the standard of beauty
I relent it all should belong to me
you swear I'm selfish
I'm just ambitious

overly critical
not nearly enough
I would trade my life
if I could just be so much more in the ground

flesh stripped away
fat trimmed from the vessel
blemishes burned from the flesh
the highest of honors
belongs to me

I thought I told you
not to look at me

not till I am perfect
will these scars fade
remnants of my old flesh still resurface
years of longing now content
years of longing still I want more

sleep doesn't belong to me
until I can wear your skin
it always comes back
memories flood into my head

ugly, I don't want to be
ugly, I don't want them to see

don't look at me

I don't want to be remembered in ugly skin
immortalized in false porcelain

don't look at me
Track Name: Enmity - Burn
:: BURN ::

Try to shut me down
Saying I stepped outta line
You push your petty bullshit
And spew your fucking lies
I'm so sick and tired
Of you getting in my face
You see me coming walk away
I'll put you in your place

I've got a monster
Buried in my soul
The more you talk the more I start to lose all self control
When Reason Fails and Force Prevails
The time to talk is done
The demons free because of you
There's nowhere you can run

Burn

Put out the raging fire
Burning in my head
All your lies and stories
Make me wish you dead
Don't stand there and tell me
What you think I should do
Your all alone and now your walls are crumbling down on you

Now that I've caught up with you
Down your twisted path
When Reason Fails and Force Prevails
These words will be your last

Burn for your sins
Track Name: xEradicatex - Vile
:: VILE ::
Track Name: erase//evolve - Elegy
:: ELEGY ::

He sees your flaws as diamonds, but you'll just push him away.
His heart of gold is meant for more than every day you'll waste
away with a bottle and a pill.
You've lost your hope, he's lost his will.
To carry your weight in his heart that you've filled with hate.
And it's too late to make amends.
Everything comes to an end.

The faces and places that you pushed away
A lifetime spent living the same empty day
Pushing the boundaries between you and I
I see right through your fucking bastard eyes

I'll watch you drown in your misery.
He holds his head high as you admit defeat.

You'll spend the rest of your life wondering where you went wrong.
In this hospital bed that you now call your home.
Scream out to a god that's nowhere to be found.
The deafening silence will shatter your bones.
And now it's made clear, you're on your fucking own
You've never felt so alone.
You're on your fucking own.

Sometimes silence speaks louder than words and I hope it burns knowing you weren't even worth a single breath.
There's the greatest bliss in knowing you have nothing left to lose, but there's a greater anguish in letting go of everything you used to cling to.
As you approach your final moments you take a paper and a pen, and write down every single word that you never said, that you should've said.
Every thought you kept locked away in your mind, and you leave it on your bedside for him to find.

You call out for him in your last dying breath.
Your spirit ascends as the ending begins to a beautiful tragedy.
The final chapter, the end to his suffering.
He opens the letter with tears in his eyes, and it reads:

"Son, if you're reading this I'm gone."

He looks to your lifeless body, eyes wide.

"One day, I'm gonna disappear.
I'll walk a no name road, to a no name town where I'll die all alone, but I'll be better off.
And I just want you to know you're the man that I'll never be.
I'm a liar, a coward, a cheat and a fake.
You're the glimmer of hope in my horrible fate.
And when it's time for me to leave, I hope you'll forgive me for every promise that I couldn't keep.
I ran away when times got tough, now all I'll ever be is a man that never cared enough."

He leaves you behind.
No apology could ever retract all the years you left him trapped in his mind.
He's broken and lost, but he'll carry on.
Alone.
Track Name: ERODE - Pain And Permanence
:: PAIN AND PERMANENCE ::

Blending days with shades of gray
Strife as a variant or endlessly stagnant
Free will is fucking worthless
In a world conquered by slaves
Embracing shame,
Bred in captivity
My mind tainted with social cancers
I exude apathy
In Choosing between pain and permanence
A dark rift that i tread cautious
Struggling to connect
With any kind of human element
Track Name: Eternal War - Stillborn
:: STILLBORN ::

Born into a world of pain and misery
a mother who loved and a father who hated me
abusive relations, scared to let her voice be heard
as i look from the cradle terrified of this fucked up world

the man who made me and destroyed me, they are one

I can still see you, the images burned to the back of my head
your voice telling her
i was just a regret

these memories stay with me, as i grow old
part of you inside of me till my blood runs cold

spilled the blood of the innocent
the blood spills to the floor
from the cradle, just a regret
my hatred will grow more


Do you remember the pain you caused

the oath you broke and the family you fucking lost
Track Name: Exert - Deadline
:: NATURES REMEDY ::

Done wasting my time can't sink below
I wont waste my time because this is something i have to do
I'm tired of losing sleep
Trying to explain everything
Because all the love
Ingrained in us
has been erased
Take it away
I find myself wanting to be taken away
Because in the end death is natures remedy
I find myself wanting to be taken away
Because all the love in this world will be erased.
Track Name: Frustrated - Brain Damage
:: BRAIN DAMAGE ::

You're sick in the head man, something's not right
A screws knocked loose, keep yo head tight
Your values are messed up
Morals are twisted
Flew passed the point man
You just don't get it
Brain is in jumble
Head in the gutter
Thoughts are misplaced
Words in a stutter
Stumble along, barely scrape by
We're over it and so are you
Redefine yourself and make a change
Grow up and be on your way
Track Name: Full Contact - Negative Mind
:: NEGATIVE MIND ::
Track Name: Full Strength - Avoid
:: AVOID ::

Take the credit
Say you've made it
Sell us short
And hope we forget it
We stick together, a sure way to win
Our will is iron strong, your mind is paper thin
Drown your insecurities
They ain't going no where
Drink away your problems
They aint going no where
Laugh at the minority
But we'll never fucking change
Straight edge stomping you out
Track Name: Genosha - Consider Yourself Amputated
:: CONSIDER YOURSELF AMPUTATED ::

People never change only circumstances. Neither one of us meet the standard in this world or any other. What we once were informs all we become. You may have been the one to murder the bonds and bridges binding and between us but it was I who cremated the cadavers to deter perverse undead resurrections and relapses of what was once the most beautiful mistake. I'm not any worse. You're no better. We spill out our souls and shine the sparks. May they be beacons when our days are dark. This is not a threat. This is a guarantee. There will be no warning shot but here's a warranty. Our hearts are on our sleeves and our hands are torches. Take this sickness from me and take me from this sickness.
Track Name: Gouge Away - Uproar
:: UPROAR ::

I’ve got bolts in my neck but I’m no monster
I’ve got bolts in my head but I’m no monster
I’m not made for your science experiment
I’m not made for your science experiment
I’ve got bolts in my spine but I’m no monster
I’ve got bolts in my brain but I’m no monster
I’m not made for your science experiment
I’m not made for your science experiment
I’ve got bolts in my neck but I’m no monster
I’ve got bolts in my head but I’m no monster
I’m not made for your science experiment
I’m not made for your science experiment
Stop testing on me
Stop testing on me
Stop testing me
I’ve got bolts in my neck but I’m no monster
I’ve got bolts in my head but I’m no monster
Bolts in my neck
Bolts in my head
Bolts in my spine
Bolts in my brain
Track Name: Great Minds - Negative Damage
:: NEGATIVE DAMAGE ::

All my life
I've been burning a hole
Cut throats but taken notice
A weight to carry
Problems meant to be solved
But you're that foolish
To repeat the same ache

Are you happy?
What's your purpose?
Are you fucking happy!
Too many shit
To let go
Its digging a hole
And its making itself home!

Trouble lingers around
Causing infections
Now kids use drugs
To escape the hurt

I am that Black Sheep

I have no fear in me
Track Name: Heavens Die - Agonizer
:: AGONIZER ::

If you want to live, step aside, mother fucker
I've got no more patience for your bullshit anymore
I'm full of more hatred than I ever thought possible
The barrel is pointed your way

Just give me a reason to swing
I'm not fucking joking
If you ever cause her grief
I'll beat your face with a bat and feed your flesh to the rats

Tear you limb from limb
Resigned to my sin

Foreign contagions fill my systems
Pervading my chest cavity
Fever heat perilous levels
Delivering me unto evil

Absolution relinquished
All life diminished
Let me be damned for her
I, the agonizer

The wolf hunts with the pack
I'm not coming back

I will not return
I go to burn
I lost my life's love
Now I am not enough
Track Name: HEXA - Hunger
:: HUNGER ::

Jetzt sind wir hier, eins, zwei, drei
Gleich bin ich, wieder allein

Kennst du das, wenn sich der Blick verklärt?
Gedanken stocken, dein Inneres schmerzt
Das ist der Hunger
Mein Freund er frisst dich für sich selbst
Verdunkelt, lähmt und betäubt
Er will, dass du dich quälst
Doch stillst du ihn, schwindet auch dein Schmerz

Ich zerreiße dich, damit es mich nicht zerreißt
Ich zerreiße dich, damit es mich nicht zerreißt

Wir der Hunger zu mächtig, dann steigt er hinauf
Und wehrst du dich, hört es trotzdem nicht auf

Ich zerreiße dich, damit es mich nicht zerreißt
Ich zerreiße dich, damit es mich nicht zerreißt

Besorg dir Beute, egal was
Still bloß diesen Hunger

Jetzt sind wir hier zu dritt
Der Hunger, du und ich
Du weißt ich will das nicht
Ich will nicht dich

Und wir sind hier zu dritt
Der Hunger, du und ich
Du weißt ich will das nicht
Ich will nicht dich

Aber ich muss
Aber ich muss
Aber ich muss

Sonst zerreißt es mich
Sonst zerreißt es mich
Sonst zerreißt es mich

Ich zerreiße dich
Track Name: Home At Last - Hell
:: HELL ::

The insignificance of my actions will fill this life with every mistake possible.

Never raise my voice if I can't back it up.
You'll never see me move unless success is partly guaranteed.
So I hold on to my false sense of importance.
We live for this moment so stand back and watch us raise hell.

I've been wasting all my life but I'm living it my way.
Track Name: Hometown Crew - The Way It Went
:: THE WAY IT WENT ::

Embrace the way
It's gonna be
And I must accept
The way you treated me

Won't I forget
The Way it Went

No more a friend
No bond to mend
And I must forget
What it once meant

Won't I forget
The Way it Went

Some, Friends
Are like the seasons
They come and go
And change their face
(They come and go and change)

I wished for change
But it never came
'Cause you wouldn't see
Your own mistakes

Won't I forget
The Way it Went

Bridges burnt
Are not rebuilt
King Midas
Live with your guilt

Some, Friends, Change
Track Name: Homewards - Despair
:: DESPAIR ::

Every breath could be the last Leaning back against the wall
He could need another jacket the breeze is piercing through Blowing in his hands is not gonna stop the chill
With holes in his shoes and holes in his jeans
All he wants is to last another night
Every breath takes you closer to death When you're all alone in the streets of loneliness
Constantly falling to the bottom of your despair With no one there to care
One step closer to death
Every breath takes you closer to death When you're all alone in the streets of loneliness
Laying your head down the freezing ground Empty stomach left, sinister sideway
No turning back
Constantly falling to the bottom of your despair Constantly
Will this ever take a turn or will we be standing and watch all burn
Track Name: Ill Judgement - It's Hard To Breath With A Noose Around Your Neck
:: IT'S HARD TO BREATHE WITH A NOOSE AROUND YOUR NECK ::
Track Name: Introvert - Descent
:: DESCENT ::

You've lost your touch and I've lost my edge
Carve me out just to watch me cave in
From the descent, crawl to the top
Steady rising won't be enough

Brace yourself just to let me down
Keep me steady, but you'll tear me to the ground
Sear my skin with the Midas touch
Leave me golden while the fool's gold rusts

You led me to the rocky cliff
Tied my feet, bound my hands, came to finish this
The time has come and gone, it gave its final breath
Our love just survived to watch its own death

Find me
In motion
In your head
Stranded
Track Name: Jukai - Result of Death
:: RESULT OF DEATH ::

Fall in line, accept a role to play
You coped with the pressure in the worst of ways
Couldn't deal with the pain
Found solace in the poison that flowed through your veins
Too young to have the life sucked from your eyes
I've never seen someone so dead inside
Saw the tag hanging from your toe
The hardest part is letting go

In and out of extremes
Numbness and anxiety
Feeling nothing or everything
Come down on me
Spent the holidays sifting through
Pictures of me and you
While the world celebrated
The year anew

Forced to carry on forever
Without a brother, an anchor
Walk the streets hoping to find your face on a stranger
Everyday feels cold and gray
Ever since you passed away
A brother's bond, what we had
I'd give anything to bring you back

Can't forget that afternoon
Found you in your room
It was cold like your skin
Lifeless eyes and stiffened limbs
Nearly cried myself to death
As I clung to a body with nothing left

Take my last breath

If seeing you again is the result of death
I can't wait to take my last breath

Take my last breath
Track Name: Keep Fighting - Criticas
:: CRITICAS ::

Te comiste un personaje
Que ni pos te crees
Pasan los años y vos seguis
Sin poder crecer

Estas olvidado muerto
pisado abandonado
tus acciones te llevan
a ser el mas odiado

criticas lo que admiras
siempre juzgas a los demas
hay un vacio en tu interior
la violencia no te lleno

hablas en exceso y ya ni vos
te podes escuchar
te crees tu verdad
ese cuento ya quedo atras

me chupa un huevo lo que pensas
vos y tu chamuyo se van de aca
de mis errores yo si aprendi
y ahora vos q esperas?

Track Name: MIND KILL - NAIL BOMB
:: NAIL BOMB ::

Do you really stand for the things you claim? It sounds like you're just here to judge and complain. Following the trends. You're like everyone else. All you imitators are making me go insane. Build your image. Elitist mindset. Carbon copies. You're all the same. You wouldn't say those things face to face, but on the internet you talk a big game.

I'm so sick and tired of observing their routine.
They care more about popularity than they care about our scene.
Impress your peers. Trick them into believing your facade.
You didn't fool us, and now we know the truth. You're a fraud.
(x2)

You tried to push us out. Found that our will is strong. You tried to shut us out of where we belong. Dealing with you will be like child's play. So for your sake you better stay out of our way.
Track Name: Minded Fury - Collision
:: COLLISION ::

The suffer won’t stop me
I’ll face all my fears
No one will free me
A lesson learned through years

I will not sink
I will not hide
No one will break me
And what’s inside

Don’t be afraid to admit
That you don’t fucking fit
In this worthless way of life
And this struggle to survive
Try to reject what they say
Let them know they’re gonna pay
For all the bullshit they sell
Let them die and rot in hell
Prepare for a collision
Between our voice and tradition
Cause dealing with the usual
Means another generation built on cruel

The suffer won’t stop me
I’ll face all my fears
No one will free me
A lesson learned through years

This movement is unstoppable
Track Name: Minority - Afraid Of The Truth
:: AFRAID OF THE TRUTH ::

I'm afraid of the truth,
Still don't trust myself,
Today I want to be alone,
Go where it fuckin end.

I'm not coming back for the night I'm going to find myself.

What the fuck is in me when I want hurt everyone else,
Still feel that the world wants to crush me.

Still afraid of the truth,
Still stoppaged ears,
it cannot be real,
I am afraid of myself.
Track Name: My Apologies - Wallow
:: WALLOW ::

Another wind from the south
Carries the warmth to my skin
But it goes unnoticed
I reach out in vain
Force myself in the flame
My body dies,
But the blood stays the same

My nerves are chilled to the bone, tearing my
Mind from everything that’s real to me
Depersonalized, I’ll lie to myself
To carry on for another day

I am fiction, I am made of dust
I fear another day
Living on and on and on and on
I am the death of truth
I am the death of truth

Burned on my back, a brand for all to see,
A picture of me,
Failing to live a life of dignity

I fear the day when I forget how to live with myself
If I never learn to forgive
And in that day, when I take myself away
From this world.
I hope I learn to carry my own wind
Because I can’t carry on like this
Any longer.
Track Name: The New Enemy - Dark Side Of The Swoon
:: DARK SIDE OF THE SWOON ::

Oh this world's on a wire
Can we find reality
At the mercy of desire
Lost in worlds of fantasy

Are we what we seem
Or just what know
Will this make believe
Be our undertow

Imagery of light
Otherwise blackness
Fumble in the night
To find our matches

Forest for the trees
With a hollow glow
Real or make believe
We may never know

The fire keeps burning
Deep inside hearts are yearning
No human connections
We've displaced our affections
Track Name: Nightowls - Peace At Last
:: PEACE AT LAST ::

Every year I catch a bus to the hill
I pass the gates of the garden in which she lays still
I lay flowers on her grave
Watch the birds fly over, they're free, why can't I be

I remember things that only us two knew
Creeping out the back door to the sound of sirens
Driving to the Heath with the EMT
I remember things that only us two knew

I can wait for heaven, can it wait for me?

I saw the lines on your arms, what were they for?
You told me broken glass was the cause but I still don't believe it
What else are you hiding, what have I missed?
Give me some answers, I need some fucking answers

Your painful days are over, your restless nights have passed
God took you in his arms and whispered, "peace at last"
And I still don't know the answers, I still don't my past
Can I wait for you to tell me?

I can wait for heaven, can it wait for me?
Track Name: No Restraint - We Suffer As One
:: WE SUFFER AS ONE ::

I have been forced to learn the difference between true progression and acceptance. With so much at risk, and so much energy wasted, the world turns a deaf ear.

Every night that we close our eyes while still missing the point, every time we waste these opportunities...to learn a lesson, to make a change, to do our part to end our suffering.

How can we thrive in a time of knowledge, when so much of our existence gets thrown away. Thrown away on weakness, thrown away on selfishness.

I won't feed the fire that turns this world to ash.

An animal is not an object, a human being is not a target. What's left will fall apart, if we don't get started. Change the way you look at the world and most of all, yourself.

When we suffer, we suffer as one.

Track Name: Not Enough - For Those Who Can't Speak
:: FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T SPEAK ::

This is the story of those that can't
SPEAK FOR THEMSELFS

Hiding their problems everyday hoping that it all goes away
Afraid to take action scared of what people would say

They are the abused, the murdered, the rapped
Political prisoners or victims of faith
They are the animals, the trees and the earth
Victims of greed and profits of war

Stop all this actions

STOP THIS WARS, TAKE CONTROL

This injustices have to end

They are the abused, the murdered, the rapped
Political prisoners or victims of faith
They are the animals, the trees and the earth
Victims of greed and profits of war

Stop all this actions

STOP THIS WARS, TAKE CONTROL

This injustices have to end

Ignorance never solved anything
Or trying to change the world in a screen
Hopping someday this would change
Ignoring the problems when they are away

Praying for the victims won’t bring them back

Don't you ever feel like,
Our time was over ?
Did you never let tears,
Fall from your eyes ?
Now it's time to rise up !
Now it's time to never let it happen again !
But don't forget the place where you come from,
Now you know you're no more alone.

Run to you and bring you in
And bring you into Hardcore.

And there's no way back fucking home !

Our time as come !
From now,

You've got to fight inner enemies.
With clenched fist made your own way.
You gotta fight for your fucking life.

and it just begun.
Our time has fuckin' come
And there's no way back to home .

I USED TO BE ABLE TO COUNT ON YOU / HOW DID NONE OF THAT MEAN ANYTHING TO YOU? I CANNOT COPE WITH THE FACT / THAT BECAUSE OF YOU I LOST ALL I HAD / HOW COULD YOU BETRAY MY TRUST WHILE YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE I EVER LOVED? / YOU HAVE FORSAKEN ME / THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN A WHILE / I CAN LOOK AT THE FUTURE AND BE GLAD / BECAUSE NOW I KNOW FOR SURE / THAT YOU WILL NOT BE AROUND / HOW COULD YOU BETRAY MY TRUST WHILE YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE I EVER LOVED? / YOU HAVE FORSAKEN ME / THIS IS WHERE WE PART / THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN SAY TO CHANGE MY MIND / BECAUSE I’M BETTER OFF THIS WAY / BUT EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE I FORGET WHAT YOU HAVE DONE (TO ME) / BUT I’LL ALWAYS KNOW WHAT WE SHARED / AS MUCH AS I HAVE

Track Name: Promises Kept - Citizenfour
:: CITIZENFOUR ::

He stood up for freedom and change, more than anyone before,
threw away his life for us, but all we do is ignore.
The truth he has told - We rather choose to be blind.
He was destined to be our saviour - But now he is in exile!

Freedom of speech is a fucking illusion - In a country ruled by those,
Who are afraid of people living free. Everyone is public enemy.
In the land of the free, freedom is only a dream.
They're blaming him, who discovers - nothing is like it seems.

After all this time, still in exile, no one really cares, nevermind.

We can't take this anymore! How do we ignore? He sacrificed his life for us. Citizenfour.

Why are we to blind to see, that it was him, who revealed,
the lies they told - the modern slavery - sad reality.
And the one that wanted us to be free is drowning in a sea -
we abandoned the last true hero that ever existed.

Believe, I can't believe. Fuck!
We are blind. We are blind. No one - is paranoid. We are blind. No one - is paranoid

Rights of the many will be forfeited - For the sake of a few chosen ones.
We will end all forms of manipulation, and the truth will come to light.
In the land of the free, they want to determine our destiny.
We must resist the power of the state, to finally be free.

After all this time, still in exile, no one really cares, nevermind.

We can't take this anymore, How can we ignore? He sacrificed his life for us. Citizenfour.

No one is - paranoid, not anymore.

Why do we ignore? Citizenfour - the one who acted brave!
Track Name: Provenance - Wait
:: WAIT ::

I don't want to be alive anymore.
Endless anxious fits, sleepless nights.

Days are never the same when you're all to blame.

I didn't expect you to wait for me.
An apple not far from the family tree.
I'll be the change that you want to see.

I need you here next to me.
The missing piece, the voice I hear in my sleep.
The waves of time keep crashing by.
To the sea, complacency.

Just give me a sign that I'm still breathing.
The current carries me with words I can't convey.

If I drown tonight, I'll drown in your eyes.
In your warm embrace as the water fills my lungs.

I'll wait for this weight to release me.
I can't take this pain anymore.
I fell in love, I fell apart.
I fell in love, I fell apart.
Track Name: Provisions - Ambition
:: AMBITION ::
Track Name: Purgatory - Death Toll
:: DEATH TOLL ::

Telling lies for lust
Putting faith in the greedy and corrupt
Owned by misery, so you seek your company between the bed sheets

Getting off on every broken promise that you tell yourself
Chained to your vices but you hide
behind a crooked cross
I don't follow with closed eyes
I still deny, to survive

Searching for truth
In an age of lies
No Peace, No Salvation,
Let the death toll rise

The worlds just become a prison cell
Mind locked, key lost, personal hell
There is no escape, forever remain
Trapped in Purgatory

No peace
No salvation
Let the death toll rise.
Track Name: Queensway - Incinerate
:: INCINERATE ::
Track Name: Realm of Torment - ...From My Cold Dead Hands
:: ...FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS ::

The problem is not the solution, as you seek to protect from the danger you've created.

Willing to ignore the problems left outside…from your cold dead hands. Carved into the mind of the ones left behind. Cast into the bodies of the survivors. Left to live in a live still blinded.

Blaming the influence, while still defending the access. Content with the death toll, unless it effects yourself.
Devoid of any common sense, your loved ones could be next.
Freedom to shoot, freedom to die, ignorant times.

A gunshot born from lunacy, self-entitled beyond belief.
Why do you think that this warfare is so crucial?

Gunshots still ring in the hall of knowledge.
Covered in stains that won’t ever wash out.
Track Name: Relevant Anger - Nine To Five
:: NINE TO FIVE ::

Working all night, hurting my back, burning my arms
Treated like shit, making so less, holding my guard
Getting through life one at a time
Again and again and again until I die


Stop giving mistreatment to the new and disproved
while you're feeling so entitled of being so crude
I have worked hard enough while you sit and do nothing
Time to put a fucking end of your constant bluffing


Getting through life one at a time
Again and again and again until I die

The clock is ticking, the time will soon come
the day I step down and say that I’m done
Track Name: Relics - Bring Your Own Blood
:: BRING YOUR OWN BLOOD ::
Track Name: Remainder - Finding Grip
:: FINDING GRIP ::

Arms stretched out
Grasping - struggling
To hold what’s within reach
Dangling at tips of my fingers
If I could only find a way to grip
I’ve gone too far
There’s no giving up now
Too late to turn my back
I refuse to ditch these dreams
The only obstacle stopping me is me.

Life isn't easy
I’ve walked away from less
Struggling to find a firm grip
These self built walls keep me from my dreams
Within the confines of my mind

Reaching deep inside
Overcoming all this self doubt
Reach deep inside
And just let it all out.

Defy - What blocks your mind.

Sometimes finding grip
Is enough to make you sink or swim
Has you questioning your own ideals
Self doubt takes over your power of presence
You can reach inside
Or you can just throw this all away
And be left with regrets of what could have been -
Had you stuck this out.
Breathe In -
It won’t get any easier than this
Breathe Out -
It’s only you that makes it harder.
Track Name: Revulsion - Misery Unfolds
:: MISERY UNFOLDS ::

I can't see straight,
Can't look you in the eye.
The one thing I want,
That's for you to die.

Shaking and sliding,
Losing my mind.

Bringing you down,
As I unwind,
Death is something I can always find.

Lie after lie,
Tell me what you think is the truth,
As I watch you change the thoughts on your youth.
Misery unfolds,
Another path for you to take.
Your father's son or another mistake?
Fueled by hate but this time,
It's too fucking late.

Tell me the truth,
Look me in the eye.
I can tell by your smile,
It's all fucking lies.

But now I'm in control,
With this noose around your neck.
So watch me pull the rope and I'll watch you forget.

King of cruel

Breeding mindless fools

In this world built for few
Corrupted by blind truth
Caste of greed, guilt, and sin
At the cost of humanity
Track Name: SET SIGHTS - Collapse
:: COLLAPSE ::

Wake me up. I'm trapped in this never ending maze, subconscious tricks of the brain clouded by subconscious haze. Losing the ability to rest my head at night- losing the ability to live this life. Quiet whispers of a voice inside stealing my breath so I'm left paralyzed. I'm hearing Death call from the floor- I'm paralyzed. I saw my ending, I saw it all. Now I can't do this anymore. This is something I can't shake, and I'm bound to cave in. This is something I can't shake, and I'm bound to break. Lost hours through this never ending night. Counting those precious sheep won't save me this time. This is a plead for anything. A plead for this quaking mountain to not collapse on me. This is something I can't shake. Fifteen years trying to find my escape from this headwind that lead me to a shallow grave. Now every time I sleep I feel a reckoning. This mountain is me.

every morning, i wake up with indecision about a life where you're forced to make a decision. to work with your hands or wash your brain in their sink. forced to stand and not to think and i won’t. less what you love more what they need, to feed their mouths and to fuel their greed. i stand in defiance of this life of compliance. your useless tradition will die with my generation. i can't force myself to hold your values. to treat my life like some product on a shelf and i can’t change.
Track Name: SOULS - Heathen Son
:: HEATHEN SON ::

I often wonder how cold you get at night, having such thin skin. Nothing protecting you from the outside world. Unscarred hands that have never known calluses. Keeping straight has become such a feat for you, with a spine so weak and curved. I often wonder how cold you get at night.

The only apologies you'll see from me, are when I'm six feet deep.
Take all the sympathies you need from me then. Cause when I'm dust and bone, this pine box will be my home.
Track Name: Take Hand - Soul Greed
:: SOUL GREED ::

Bite into my flesh and see what I'm worth
But I will refuse to become
Part of your world

You will pay for every cent that you kept away from humble hands

Crooked words and hours on repeat
You're a slave to your own empire so watch it crumble

Your spine is covered in slime
You've got soul greed

Take your money thief
Feed your need
Take your money thief
Feed your need
You're not the cure
You're the disease

Labour in vain, oppress the pain
As it all burns to the ground

You've got soul greed
Track Name: Ten Ton Hammer - Always Empty
:: ALWAY EMPTY ::

Who am I? I ain’t shit
Nothing would change if I didn’t exist
A faceless man alone in a crowd
watching my polariod fading out

I will never matter, no plan for me
I’m not chosen, I got no destiny
I will never matter, Always empty
No future, I got no destiny

Who am I? A boring story
No hero, no guts, no glory
A rigged game with no way to win
A never was who never really could have been

Why do I even try to live this pointless lie of a life
I see the truth
I know that I will never matter

No matter what I do,
It doesn’t go away
Always empty

I know that I will never matter
Track Name: Terrible Love - Mt. Misery
:: MT. MISERY ::

Useless, absent, forgetful mind
The love I knew was left behind
But why must I remember this

No calming hand could sway me now
I'd rather nothing than the same
I'll miss the world, but it won't miss me
This wasn't born from sadness
It starts with rage
For putting me in this cage

Useless, absent, forgetful mind
The love I knew was left to die
But I'll remember this

I lay my head down on cold of tracks
Where you placed coins
I hope to hear a little better

The ground shakes underfoot
A train is coming to take me away
But I don't want to leave
Track Name: Time to Heal - Flatline
:: FLATLINE ::

Everything you say runs off me now
And I don't wanna hear another bullshit word from you
Everything you say is something I've heard before
And I don't really care no more

I don't care anymore
I don't really care no more

This has gone on long enough
I'm sick and tired of you acting so tough
Why don't you shut your mouth?
Shut the fuck up
Track Name: Transcendence - Left For Dead
:: LEFT FOR DEAD ::

Feed off the weak and the helpless
Fake respect from the crushed and defenseless
Younger kids look up to you
If only they could see the real truth!

Portrayed as something you're not
For the whole of your life
Expect respect but never give it
I won't let this lie

Your family use excuses
But I know you're just human waste
No friends, just acquaintances
It's a lonely life ahead

Portrayed as something you're not
For the whole of your life
Expect respect but never give it

I won't let this lie
The tables have turned
When will you learn you're not that person?

LEFT FOR DEAD
Smashed up, and left for dead

Can't you see you've got no friends left

No one to turn to
It's been so long and who's laughing now?
You suffered for your mistakes
Your body will never be found
Track Name: Vatican - Paingod
:: PAINGOD ::

Nine days of mourning
Thoughts of love and destruction
Bleeding out my veins

These tattered hands stretching out to an empty sky
Of misfortune and broken guilt

No feeling is final

Yet driven, unseen by you
Only buried in dreams
Sick of dreaming if God would
Carry you away from the dust

Nurturing the thought of humanity
Shattering its will

I'm tired of dreaming..
I'm tired of dreaming if you'd come back
Letting go of destiny to focus on your end

Haunting angels searching for a pillar of light
Grim as my final self fades away into silence

My screams are swallowed by God

To burn your world
No escape
No hell more harsh than dying alone

You are but gears in a failing machine
grinding, lifeless, worked to the bone

Mother, father they're as vacant as you
the whip cracks and rips your skin
Your mouth pours blood
your hands rubbed raw
obey your master, wind the coil
covered in black dust, empty soul

I'll never comprehend
how you could be so blind
working your whole life
for a man that doesn't care

Breaking, breaking
breaking each day
working for nothing
you won't be repaid
slaves slaves slaves

Track Name: Young Wolf - Black Tongue
:: BLACK TONGUE ::

You are not yourself
You are slave to condition
Singing through your teeth in a minor key
Use your words
From your tongue runs a river of black
Where you're going there's no way back

A mountain stained horizon
Cutting through the sky
And I am sorry
I can not follow you anymore

Searching
But never finding what is pure
In this world full of filth I am sorry
I can not follow you
Bleeding
My lungs are bleeding and I can't
Find any meaning in these words anymore
Flowing like a river from your black tongue

Your lies have spoken to the eyes of the listener
Dependence grows on you're only wrong decision
Preservation won't stop speaking make a point in use
