Track Name: The Adversary
I am fate divided

Silence in the heart of a black hole

The spear in the side of your Messiah

Echoes inside the burning well
Track Name: Voices of Vengeance
Hear me now!



(You Self Righteous son of a bitch!)

I was never the perfect, fighting pride or the chosen
I’m just a glorified pawn in the fray of war
Never intended to ascend to the promise
Bound by the blood of the “angels” before me
Was I always expendable in your endeavors
Was my sacrifice never internalized?
This is one hell of a fall from “grace”
To hell! You better pray I never seek my

Vengeance
Wont you succumb to the darkness
Vengeance
They wouldn't let this go no
Vengeance
Close your eyes and feel
(Would they be so understanding if they were dying in these flames?)

Wont you give me a reason to fight another day
You’re two seconds from feeling fire
Just do me justice and tell me what I am to you
I cant erase this phantom
this haunting is tearing me apart
Maybe this is your way of showing you care
Or maybe I’ll show you the

Flames

The Pain
The voices of vengeance
The fear the strain
of becoming my newest prey

You were the answer
You were my medicine
You were the conscience
You showed me the way

I was your comfort
I was your soldier
I was the one who bore the weight on my shoulders
Now I’m the one bearing the scars of the torture
Forever feeling burns of your blatant

Betrayal
I was willing to die for you
With my back against the wall
It didnt matter if I was surrounded
Day or night I embraced the fall

(Chorus)


Maybe we’d be okay if I could make those decisions
Maybe it’d work if we were on the same plane
Why is it that I cant be human
Why do i have to take the “proper precaution”

You tell me this is my “Chance”
This is your gift to me?
I have no need for your pity
You are truly under nothing short of dillusion to think for a second that you are actually in the winners seat.

Are you afraid?
Are you fucking afraid?
What is there to fear? Im just a pawn
Just a simple stitch in the fabric
Are you afraid?
Are you fucking AFRAID
Admit it
ADMIT IT OR ELSE
(Solo)

(chorus)
Track Name: Already Dead
Well holy hell
You’ve done it now
Celebrations in order
for this beautiful tragedy
Karma is the least of your worries
Your shadows evolved into a motherfucker
Tell me how far did you think you’d get?
You cant run from the reach of revenge
You could have gone over
You COULD HAVE GONE OVER
All-you-had-to-do-was-walk away

Here we are in the court of gallows
What will you say now that eyes are on you?

Do you want to solve the puzzle

Would you rather plead your case

Do you have an alibi that will make this go away
Or would you rather tell your story to this phantom that has no memory
Will you bury me just one more time?

Im standing right here
So ill ask
WHAT HAVE YOU GOT?
I’ll take it to the top of the mountain
Right where YOU CAST ME DOWN
What is this look in your eyes
 Am I staring at a Man afraid?
This time I see clearly
This time you get no mercy

It is time
Your day of reckoning is here
You can’t hurt me
You’ve lost that power
Here we are again at the pinnacle of our story

Only difference is IM ALREAY DEAD

Would I be justified If the roles were reversed?
Would I be justified if I took the same measures?
Would I be glorified If I were to play the victim?
Would I be glorified If I were to just walk away?

Do you want to solve the puzzle

Would you rather plead your case

Do you have an alibi that will make this go away
Or would you rather tell your story to this phantom that has no memory
Will you bury me just one more time?
Track Name: Lucy Fa
I was hers
she was mine
as our souls collided

Grasped my heart with her eyes
Grabbed my hand as she ran towards the fire

every step
every stride
I could see the world burn
Crashing down all around
But tell you the truth
I didn't care to let go

(Wake me up
Cant get enough
I lust her touch
She has me zombified )

What can I say she’s a walking apocalypse
I’ve been seduced into taking the fruit oh no
She just made it taste so good
Now the sun is falling down

With every step
Every breath
Im losing touch
Is this it? Oblivion?
Rise up
to fall deeper
in SIN! (someone something)
Wake me up!

(Wake me up
Cant get enough
I lust her touch
She has me zombified )

What can I say she’s a walking apocalypse
I’ve been seduced into taking the fruit oh no
She just made it taste so good
Now the sun is falling down
