Track Name: Hazmat Birth
I am now lost, lost in my sins of flesh and blood
Delve deeper into the depths you thought you understood, this is the everlasting scribe of the words of denial, neglect and insanity,
I am but a worm, fossilzed in these walls of depravity, redemption long since faded to illusion
Extinguished in the crimson waters of dilution, a pupil penned slaughter wrought of vericose pollution

Intravenous blankets cover me with this false security
Masking the thought of my own self wrought impurity
From a martyr to a masochist I've destroyed my mind
Prisoner made of the escapist, my vessels are dry

Are you still listening? I know my words they sting
And would you care at all,, if I give in and fall?
Is your skin blistering? I know my words they sting
And would you care at all, If I destroyed it all?

I've rejected the signs to embrace the night, my soul is dead before me
For all that its worth, I emerge ablaze dripping in this hazmat birth
Maps of branching scars will show the paths where the blood once flowed, lifelong horrors are sewn

And now I should have known now my like fate, my heart has slowly turned to stone, so as it cracks and then it breaks, I fear its far too late for my salvation

Within these terrifying destitute blackened halls, all about the floor used needles, strewn between blood stained walls
The daylight it fades and the darkness then soon falls, raising the safe net to break my fall
Its here that I found the light I needed to survive, sifting through syringes, somehow I regained my sight.

Are you still listening? I know my words they sting
And would you care at all,, if I give in and fall?
Is your skin blistering? I know my words they sting
And would you care at all, If I destroyed it all?

Clenching my fists in pain, I have to break these chains, and kill this beast within and clear my veins of mortal sin.
Track Name: Funeral Winds
When you die, will it matter if you bank account was full, your money cant buy any friends to attend your funeral
Will anyone cry, at the thought of your rotting skull, withering bones and fading essence, or will you be remembered only for your greed,
Its lonely at the top, if only the heartless had a heart to stop,
Living breathing assets, pawns for financial gain, is that all you see when you look into the eyes of your fellow man, there's a hole where your heart belongs, but you were born with twice the brains, money makes the world go round,
Break the backs of the peasants below you, giveth them their bread and water, no remorse no empathy, let the lambs feed the slaughter,
Exorbitant expenditures living a life of lavish luxury, exorbitant expenditures, you're living a lie
Its lonely at the fucking top if only the heartless had a heart to stop, from your palace you look upon your land, laughing at those below who serve and rot.
Too long you've looked down on the world below from your throne of destitute bones, a smile crosses your covetous lips, reddened by the finest wines, soon the only red you'll see, will be your own blood spilling in the streets, we rise from the depths to maim and crush, the empire you built on our blood sweat and tears will be reduced to dust
Break the back of the king before us, sword in hand he shall no longer ignore us, but be we better than he? or shall we live the same life of gluttonous lechery.
The funeral winds are blowing in, from rags to riches, from riches to rotting as maggots devour your skin.
When you die, will it matter if you bank account was full, your money cant buy any friends to attend your funeral, Will anyone cry at the thought of your rotting skull, withering bones and faded soul
Track Name: War Never Changes
Give us your tired, your poor huddled masses, so we can do what we do best
Turn our backs and turn up our noses, the more we hate we create more foes
Born and bred through privilege, to care not for the dead and limbless
A seemingly endless supply of expendable humans, why should we help the people that our nation left in ruins? A monster we armed and trained, now we vow to wipe the stain, a seemingly endless supply of expendable humans, why should we help the people that our nation left in ruins we fight a monster we armed and trained, and now we vow to wipe the stain,
Give us your tired your poor huddled masses, so we can do what we do best, turn our backs and turn up our nose, the more we hate we create more foes, youre born and bred through the privileged life you lead you'll never have to see your loved ones bleed
Run and hide, close the borders, safe inside lead the lamb to the slaughter, this is what they want, this is how they win, but by all means treat those in need like subhumans
Run and hide, close the borders, safe inside leave the lamb to the slaughter, this is what they want, this is how they win, when the terror imposed becomes the fear within, the fear within turns man to sin
For the smartest species on the planet we're still so brainless, hurry up grab the stainless, war - war never changes / weve learned nothing, repeat the cycle, live by the sword die by the rifle
War never changes war never changes, from sticks and stones and broken bones to bombs and tanks and broken homes, war never changes, war never changes, planet earth is just one big tomb, the human race is fucking doomed.
Track Name: Apathy For Those Left Drowning
The only consistency in this life I lead is chaos, the endless stirring tides of unbalance, pushing and pulling, the ebb and flow, drag me below as my struggling essence crashes against the rocks
Saltwater breathes in easier than the thin air of hope, upon this wavy surface as I choke
Giving up never sounded so good, when all your dreams seem like ghosts, and you're standing on a sinking ship, you pray for the day you see the coast
Have you suffered enough? I never suffer enough! You're doing something you love! I'm barely staying above! So fuck your passion fuck your pride, you gave it your best now its time to die / watch it die
Deranged, sick depraved, gluttonous for this punishment I crave, insane yet still I slave, just to breathe beneath the waves
I will not bend I will not break, I know that I have sealed my fate, I refuse to lose I will not quit the captain goes down with the ship, I live to leave a legacy before beneath the waves I slip.
Track Name: Immortal, I Create
I've only ever known one thing, known only one way for all eternity
Immortal I create yet I lie in wait as its stripped away from me
Another year my limbs stagnate and wither, somehow I survive through another cold winter
Awakened from suffering, my blood flows free uncoagulated
One footstep of thousands, moving forward, crossing mountains
The flesh of my foes, the ones who oppose, shall nourish the circling falcons
Crimson rivers stain my sidewalks and streets as blood fills my fountains
You can't take this away from me, I'll rage against your apathy, I'll bow out from this stage of blasphemy, but mark my words you haven't seen the last of me
My soul is forever cold I've paid my weight in blood and gold, I'll sever the ties of a desolate path and walk this broken road alone
This eternal wasteland is all I know, yet from my endless travels I have nothing to show
I'll make something from nothing, I've done it before and I'll do it again, stand in my way and rest assured you'll be torn to shreds
