Track Name: God Of War
I see blood and dust
Mixing on the ground
Countless fools arrive to fall
Old scars have brought new anguish
To those that didn't listen
Manipulated again

God of war
Living on the battlefield
War
Your blood was spilled in vain

I see precious lives
Swallowed by depression
And they don't even see the fall
Corruption of the ego
No will to lift yourself up
The only way to escape is gone

God of war
Living on the battlefield
War
Your blood was spilled in vain

I see a new hate rising
Brought by your aging masters
The past has taught you nothing
The circle's never-ending
Corruption goes too deep
You might as well give up now
Can't stop the...

God of war
Living on the battlefield
War
Your blood was spilled in vain
Track Name: Minutes
Just breathe now
And listen to my voice
Abandon reasoning
and dare to make a mindless choice
We are wandering
Lost inside a haze
Collecting minutes of the day

I'm killing
I'm giving
I'm dying
I'm coming to take you away
Reacting to decadence
Refusing to obey

Just relax
No reason to despair
Ancient memories
are bound to make a lasting tear
I'm looking at you
Will you face the stare
Collecting minutes of the day

I'm killing
I'm giving
I'm dying
I'm coming to take you away
Reacting to decadence
Refusing to obey

Sheltered in fear
Glad you are here
To break me down
Masquerade, relieve, evade
The only question is why

Bring down the sacrifice, never-ending
Condemn the innocent, so naive
Wasted, faceless, trying to believe

Into the unknown
I'm coming for you
Wait for me...

I'm killing
I'm giving
I'm dying
I'm coming to take you away
Reacting to decadence
Refusing to obey
Track Name: Colors Never Change
Do colors change or are we doomed to see
Life repeat until it's over
One man divided
In a constant battle of the soul
Keeping all the pressure to himself
Anything else would only bring pain

And I pray for the weak, caught in the fray

My head, inside it's grey
From all the shit I was fed
My hands are soaked in red
Some say it's there to stay

Sacrifice the pawns 'till you're satisfied
The center piece is all that's left now
Time for departed
To say the words that I never could
Reach out for everlasting
Or suffer the outcome of wrath

And I pray for the weak, caught in the fray

My head, inside it's grey
From all the shit I was fed
My hands are soaked in red
Some say it's there to stay

The colors never change
And we are all to blame

Electrify this wire wrapped around my spine
Do anything to feel connected
The center piece indifferent
Took its time to learn the obvious
Come face the overwhelming odds
Taking the restless in tow

And I pray for the weak, caught in the fray

My head, inside it's grey
From all the shit I was fed
My hands are soaked in red
Some say it's there to stay
Track Name: Wasted
Your smile, fading
So hurtful to see it go
There's a face you don't recognize
Hanging on the wall

Was it all for nothing
As generations turn to dust
Prolonging endless hours
Wasted

Memories
From so long
Seem like yesterday's
Clarity would be kindness
Buying time
For a while
For some sense

Was it all for nothing
As generations turn to dust
Prolonging endless hours
Wasted

A watered-down dimension
No fate in lasting cure
Corroding with dementia
Calling out for you
I'm alive

Does it hurt
Does it ache
To crumble silently
Treasures buried in your head
Forever gone
Forever gone

Was it all for nothing
As generations turn to dust
Prolonging endless hours
Wasted
Track Name: The Final Walk
So many ways to go
So many roles to know
Slipping through the iris
The darkness penetrates and stays in
Pushing on

Enraged
The cycle, a stable revolution of pain
In the night hold a candle for your sacrifice
Reaping rewards

The final walk
Joining the condemned
Resurrected
Right before the end

Alone
Beating heart, broken soul
They cast the reckoning
No one in front of me
Tarnished, left ignored

The final walk
Joining the condemned
Resurrected
Right before the end

Walk with me now
Why are you making me shout
No sign of life
No place like home
I'd sooner break your fucking neck before I let you go

Dismay
The silence is only ever used to betray
Fight and disobey
'Till the light of day
Diseased until you leave me
Flicker, Fire, Light

The final walk
Joining the condemned
Resurrected
Right before the end
Track Name: Without Remorse
Feels like tripping
A step too far
With you by my side
It was a wicked ride

Cut the rope
Climb above
Decisions I'll regret
Reinvent myself
I'm not afraid

Without remorse
Leave me alone, I say
Before you go
Take just what you need
Take me back home and I'll
Be on my own

It doesn't seem right
Have I crossed the line
Countless options, all worse
Than the one I chose this time

Bite the hand that feeds
Love your enemy
It's all backwards again
But I don't care

Without remorse
Leave me alone, I say
Before you go
Take just what you need
Take me back home and I'll
Be on my own

Sealed in a deadlock, a part of me
Wishes I were stronger, yesterday
These decisions are bound to
make me feel inadequate
Even though you're forcing me

You blame me
You waste your time
Whatever happened before
Is all behind us now
Brake the deadlock now
Stand, come out alive
Turning to myself for help

Without remorse
Leave me alone, I say
Before you go
Take just what you need
Take me back home and I'll
Be on my own
Track Name: Part Of You
Can you see the light
Coming from their eyes
Do you hear their voices
Chanting

Before dawn
You'll be blessed with
A new view of the world around you
Try
And move against it
You'd be caught in a landslide

Insanity
Creeping through your ears tonight
Mechanically
Rearrange your brain to follow
And then you'll see
I'm a part of you

Can you feel the tremors
Creeping down your spine
Do you hear the voices echoing

I'll never back down
This stage is mine and mine alone
Never withdraw
Do you even know what you're facing

Insanity
Creeping through your ears tonight
Mechanically
Rearrange your brain to follow
And then you'll see
I'm a part of you
Track Name: Slave
Weaponize
The status quo
Search left and right and underground,
You fail
To find deliverance
The last remains of dignity gone
You want to form a line?
Form a line right here

In a way it's all a lie
The liberties you buy
And your fate was always sealed
Abandoned as you yield
In a sense you're a slave

Recognize
The demon's horde
Corrupted in their decadence
So cold
And yet so vigorous
The hands that hold your
Miserable lives
You've come to free us all?
Free us from yourselves

In a way it's all a lie
The liberties you buy
And your fate was always sealed
Abandoned as you yield
In a sense you're a slave

In a way...
In a sense you're a slave
