“Caressed By The Hands of Fate”

The gates have opened up.
Succumb To temptation.
Rise hammer of justice from which there’s no escape.
Write the epic opus. The story etched in slate.

Perched upon her ledge staring down with hate. You have been caressed by the hands of fate.

Fulfill a bleak destiny.
Your ship begins to sink.
Time, the broken hourglass was never on your side.
I the debt collector to which you owe your life.

Perched upon her ledge staring down with hate. You have been caressed by the hands of fate.

Up high
She climbs
Straight down
She brings with her
Rage-wrath-hell-death

Perched upon her ledge staring down with hate. You have been caressed by the hands of fate.

 

“The Liquid Answer”

No god before me.
No one can hold restraint.
Now taste the pleasures poured straight from the chalice.
Confront the opposition before the fall.
Become the desperation. Answer the call.

A fire inside for which it sinks its teeth.
The burning in time will bring you to your knees.

The liquid answer

Behold the power.
Embrace the legacy.
Become the puppet of the beckoning fruit.
The chariot is waiting. The endless ride.
Sobriety is waning. All gone in time.

A fire inside for which it sinks its teeth.
The burning in time will bring you to your knees.

The liquid answer
The liquid answer

BURN from the inside out

It’s time you give this up.
It’s time you walk away.
You are now one with me.
My pleasure bringing you down.

Back again so soon?
Begging please!
One more thing to do.
Get on your knees.

The liquid answer
The liquid answer

 

“Into The Unknown”

They fly!

We’re marked as targets from the beyond.
Become the harvest. The selection.
The sky has opened. We are dethroned.
They walk among us. We go into the unknown.
Into the unknown.

Through pain and fear we raise our hands.
Into the sky
The beckoning voyage
Into the unknown

The sanctuary has been destroyed.
The numbers growing of the deployed.
Our puppet masters are overthrown.
With toxic venom we go into the unknown.
Into the unknown.

Through pain and fear we raise our hands.
Into the sky
The beckoning voyage
Into the unknown
A chariot’s journey
Into the unknown.

Through pain and fear we raise our hands.
Into the sky
The beckoning voyage
Into the unknown
A chariot’s journey
Into the unknown.

 

“From Blue To Black”

As we ride through the atmosphere to face the gods.
The sky fades from blue to black as the highest cloud falls below.

Left behind.
Goodbye.
Far behind.

As we ride through the atmosphere to face the gods.
The sky fades from blue to black as the highest cloud falls below.

Below!

From Blue to black!

 

“1012”

We’re turning out the lights on this deserted land.
With overgrowing rage, the glass we get from sand.
Run over the opposed.
Your weakness exposed.

We run through hell.

Hoist the colors as we set sail.
Now we’re leaving this all behind on 1012.
Is where it’s left for dead.

No more the puppet of your diluted lies.
We cut the strings above. We’re cutting all the ties.
Run over the opposed.
Your weakness exposed.

We run through hell.

Hoist the colors as we set sail.
Now we’re leaving this all behind on 1012.
Is where it’s left for dead.
Is where it’s left for dead.

Hoist the colors as we set sail.
Now we’re leaving this all behind on 1012.
Is where it’s left for dead.

 

“One By One”

Air raid attack.

Like a thief in the night I come to take the life of every living thing including myself.
Why bother listening? Not like you ever have.
Just keep believing in your own lies.
Demise.

One by one the vultures gather to claim the sky.
Piece by piece the ashes scatter throughout the night.

Ruins!

The war has just begun. The final curtain call. The grim reality begins to set in.
Don’t try to break away as the cathedral falls.
It’s far to late for you to save your life.
Demise.

One by one the vultures gather to claim the sky.
Piece by piece the ashes scatter throughout the night.
The night!
Side by side we stand in ruins. We all fall down.
Down one by one.

No shelter. No savior.
Nobody coming for you.
There are no survivors.
The earth returns to new.

One by one the vultures gather to claim the sky.
Piece by piece the ashes scatter throughout the night.
The night!
Side by side we stand in ruins. We all fall....fall...down.
Down one by one!

 

“Drafted”

Selection-they say it’s chance.
Confusion-of circumstance

For a time will come for the eagle to fall.
To stand before the flag and erase us all.

Look to the sky and cry as you bleed to death.
Nowhere to hide. Soon you’ll be laid to rest.
Your pain.
Their gain.
Now you will die and none of it making sense.
Don’t be surprised. They’re full of arrogance.
You played
The game.

Hold your breath-as hell rains down.
No way out-no head to crown.

For a time will come for the eagle to fall.
To stand before the flag and erase us all.

Look to the sky and cry as you bleed to death.
Nowhere to hide. Soon you’ll be laid to rest.
Your pain.
Their gain.
Now you will die and none of it making sense.
Don’t be surprised. They’re full of arrogance.
You played
The game.

“Behind Closed Eyes”

My eyes can’t see you.
They’re closing off the world.
My heart has darkened.
The nightmare has begun.

The phantom coming.
A thief of dignity.
The stealth approaching.
And all will come undone.

There is no ending in sight.
There is no cracks in the stone.
Behind closed eyes I walk alone.

Through devastation my taste for hatred grows.
Retaliation.
For all the heathens run.

There is no ending in sight.
There is no cracks in the stone.
Behind closed eyes I walk alone.

I walk deep in the night with nothing left to dethrone.

Behind-closed eyes-I’ll find....you.

There is no ending in sight.
There is no cracks in the stone.
Behind closed eyes I walk alone.

 

“WHY” (featuring Rose Ozinga)

-Wednesday. March 5th 2008. 5 A.M.-

I’ll believe in god if that’s the only way.
Now your memory will always remain.

WHY
Help me understand
WHY
Help me understand why.

Now you’re in no pain. Now I feel alone.
Your battle is done. Your cancer is gone.

WHY
Help me understand
WHY
Help me understand why.

I hold your hand. (you hold my hand)
As long as I can. (As long as you can)
I lay beside you. (You lay beside me)
I am just a man.

I kiss your face. (You kiss my face)
Another warm embrace (another warm embrace)
I wipe your tears (you wipe my tears)
As you leave this place.

I hold your hand as long as I can.
I lay beside you. I am just a man.
I kiss your face. Another warm embrace.
I wipe your tears as you leave this place.

(You will not be forgotten)

 

“Becoming Nemesis”

The seed retracts and becomes dormant.
But the beast reacts to all her torment.

Becoming god. Adrenaline rush.
The rising sun awaits the rain.
Coming undone. The scarlet tears.
The war begun releasing her pain.

Awakening from hibernation becoming nemesis.
Immortal redemption.
You’ll pay at her discretion.

The starving beast will begin to hunt.
She’s on the prowl. You are the chosen one.

Becoming god. The blood will spill.
The rising sun as the body contorts.
Coming undone. Bones will shatter.
The war begun as the flesh distorts.

Awakening from hibernation becoming nemesis.
Immortal redemption.
You’ll pay at her discretion.

The last laugh will be hers and hers alone.
She is the nemesis.

Keep pushing her down!
Becoming nemesis.

Don’t mistake her for a vessel of shame.
Releasing tears to harvest her pain.
Becoming nemesis.

Becoming god.
The rising sun.
Coming undone.
The war begun.

Awakening from hibernation becoming nemesis.
Immortal redemption.
You’ll pay at her discretion.

The last laugh will be hers and hers alone.
She is the nemesis

 

“As The Worm Turns”

One day you're thinking that maybe you're feeling better
And you're probably an OK person, if only you had a job
Through the hollow tombs can see them
Through their mouths I can hear them praying for pain
But it's only a game

Listen, man, I know
That things are really rough
And everybody gets you
And life is really tough
But I know that deep down inside
There's a feeling that rides
All the way to the end

Thursday you sit in your room with the lights turned out
And you don't answer the door
Friday morning looks sunny and bright
Like it's going to be a good day
And it would be if only you had a job

Time is on your side, you're young
Don't waste your time today
