Track Name: The Monsters Inside Me
Today I woke sensing it
Heavy, damp, festering
On the walls and in your eyes
Craving, crushing, draining

Look into these searing eyes
Do you see anything that's me?

You turned blank and cold
And it feels like love has turned
Into just a word
I know it,
I'm changing, I'm lost

I wish that I could stay the same
For you

Look into these searing eyes
Do you see anything that's me?

Clawing its way out
Screaming through my eyes
Lashing me onwards at you
The past flash before me
Remember our first time
Remember our love
When did it cease?

Look into these searing eyes
Do you see anything that's me?
Am I hurting you because I can,
or is it because of what's inside?

Cries echoing down the hall
Smothered by raging fire
Under my skin I see it crawl
This awakening must be stopped

Must be stopped...
Something inside...
Tearing...
Something inside my skin tear
Little creatures me devour
On the porcelain skin appear
Beautiful deep red flowers

I have to leave you now
for you to live
Track Name: Dark Horizon
Rain to wash away
The Blood from our hands

Look at the sun and be sure of that
You will take it down
With blood dripping from your knuckles
Shout I’m the master

To take what we can and destroy the rest
The victor conquers in triumph
The loser suffers in grief

Show us a way to escape
To avoid our dark horizon
We cry, we pray
Still no way, still dark horizon

No, nowhere to go

We Tried

No time, to see
The looming dark horizon
The Horror, the future
Upcoming dark horizon
Show us a way to escape
To avoid our dark horizon
We cry, we pray
Still no way, still dark horizon
Track Name: Death Engine Machine
Connected, incompatible
Forced into a downward spiral
We want to, we need to
Be each other’s liberator
Destroy me, let me destroy you
We tear each other apart
I’ll always love you
Like a death engine machine

You are my death engine machine

Pull me down, drag me through
Misery, destroy me
I want you to, I’d love you to
Slowly wither with me
We destroy each other
But I love you still
Crawl under my skin, fester on my heart
Say you love me

Love, I want to drain you
Now, you will kill my
Heart, I want to feel you
Die, I want to be your
Death engine machine
Track Name: Living Black Hole
Tears are running down my face
Forgiving me not
I'm drowning
Pulling, clinging

In deep mire I am sunk
Reaching out my hand
I whisper
Pull me up

My fingers stain you like coal
Smothering your hope
Your soul

What lies beneath my skin
What writhing taint
What light burns without air
Not you, not me

In deep mire I am sunk
You're holding my hand
I whisper
Let go

My fingers stain you like coal
Smothering your hope
Your soul

Too far I have sunk
Let go, let go
Please let go

Of the living black hole
Track Name: beLIEve
How could you believe
Pathetic dirt
She’s the prettiest you ever saw
How could you believe that
She could love someone like you
Believe the lie

How could you believe that
Someone like you could
Ever be happy

Listen to me
I am your only friend
Everything dies but
I’ll stand by you ‘till the end
They’re all rotten
I’ll be your only friend
We’ve been betrayed
We will be better off alone

Our dying lounges try to breath
Their tainted air of deceit
Empty grins calling us 'friend'
Trust me, it's another dead end

Do you think you can destroy me?
Do you think you have the means to control me?
Do you think you can go on without me?
You need me

Listen to me
I am your only friend
Everything dies but
I’ll stand by you ‘till the end
They’re all rotten
I’ll be your only friend
We’ve been betrayed
We will be better off alone

We are better off alone
Track Name: The Burden
The inner eye all stitched up
Hands tied to the chest
Hanging in an umbilical noose
With life you are blessed
A head filled with shambolic
thoughts to the rim
A vice around your heart
and your eyes so dim

I cannot move at all
I'm nailed to the ground
I have to escape myself
I have to find you now

We try to live
To stay alive
Still we die, slowly
You and I
Try to stay alive, try

Lowered down into
the dark cold deep
You tried for so long
but could not sleep
In this watery grave
of self-disgust
The burden is who
you can trust

We try to live
To stay alive
Still we die, slowly
You and I
Try to stay alive, try
Track Name: With Vengeance
There is a single emotion
running through your veins
There is a single emotion
provoking such deeds
Ghosts are eating away
at your mind
Who is that you're fighting
But not yourself

Was their love to tough
for you to return
What did you feel
when fear shot from their eyes
Are they haunting you now
As you close your eyes
Is this their vengeance
You inflict upon yourself?

They're coming back
It's all coming back
With Vengeance

Do they know you are sorry
Do they know your regret
Would they not torment you if they did
Is the guilt to great
Are you afraid
Can you look into their eyes
Can you sleep through the night?

They're coming back
It's all coming back
With Vengeance
Track Name: A Place Among The Forlorn
Dreams are gone
The night is empty
The day is grey
Hate, constrict me

Seeping from the walls
Empty loneliness
From the cracks ascend
The crawling ants
From my hands
You sit here beside me
No light in your eyes
I see they got you too
Now that your hope finally dies

A cry and a shudder
As god leaves you alone
Out in the cold with
The bleak and the crown
We’re losing ground but
Just try to hold on
Now that we can hope for
A place among the forlorn
Track Name: No Stars Shine
Pain as I drag myself
Through the shards to you
Can you see my smile
Trembling in your fear
we're hurt but we will never die

No stars shine, silence is our only hope
Don't fear me, embrace me,
Eat my flesh
Inject my ghosts
let us die, I want to die
No stars shine for us tonight
let us die, I want to die
You and me both

You've been dragged through hell
Together with me
Why won't you look into my eyes
Why are you avoiding my eyes

No stars shine, silence is our only hope
Kiss my razor lips, let us die
Stab my heart, I'm running dry for you
Why are you avoiding my eyes
I want to die
No stars shine for us tonight
I don't want to die alone
Track Name: Out Of Reach
There is a malevolence
Corroding my mind
A sense of stagnant
lifeless survival
What can I do
To feel what you feel
To not feel what I feel

Don't want to live in fear
of waking up every day
I wish that I could rip my flesh asunder
To live free

I want others to see me
Like they see you
I want to have the hopes
I know you do

Don't want to just survive
I want to truly live
I have to scream
I want to breath

I want others to see me
Like they see you
I want to have the hopes
I know you do
I want to see the beauty
You tell me about
I want to feel like you
And not like me
