Track Name: Fight The Tide
WHEN I WAKE UP FROM MY DREAMS,
WHEN I WAKE FROM AN ABSENT REALITY,
I DESIRE NOTHING MORE THAN TO BREAK THE HANDS OF TIME.

TO BRING ME BACK, WHEN MY LIFE WAS COLD,
WHEN PAIN WOULD CEASE TO TEAR ME APART.
MADE THE MISTAKE OF WANTING TO FEEL,
SOMETHING THAT WAS LONG FORGOTTEN.

ONLY TO LEARN THAT IT WOULD BRING
UNDERLYING FEARS OF SUFFERING.
CALLOUSED PAST, WHAT HAS BECOME OF ME,
MY THOUGHTS AND DREAMS HAUNT MY MEMORY.

LIAR.

SOMETHING THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN,
BUT WAS TORN OUT RIGHT FROM UNDER ME.
HUMAN RIGHTS, HOW CAN I LIVE,
WHY MUST I FACE THIS PAIN AND AGONY?

AS THE SANDS OF TIME RUN DOWN,
CAN I PICK MYSELF UP OFF-THE-GROUND,
CAN I KEEP MY HEAD ABOVE THE TIDE,
WILL I DIE IF I’M LEFT DROWNING?
Track Name: Curse Of Life
WHY MUST I WALK THIS EARTH?
I LIVE THIS PLAGUE, DOOMED AT BIRTH.
I SHOULDN'T HAVE SURVIVED MY MOTHER'S WOMB.
MY BODY SERVES AS MY TOMB.
LOOKING AROUND ME I CAN'T DESCRIBE IN WORDS,
MY WISHFUL FEELINGS TO HAVE NEVER GONE THROUGH BIRTH.

CURSE OF LIFE, WAIT FOR DEATH.
PRAYING FOR MY LAST BREATH.

STRANGLE MY YOUNG BODY WITH THAT CORD.
NO NEED FOR ME TO HAVE BEEN BORN.
GASPING FOR AIR, WAITING TO DIE.
MY INFANTILE BODY SHOULD NEVER HAVE GAINED LIFE.


CURSE OF LIFE, WAIT FOR DEATH.
PRAYING FOR MY LAST BREATH.
Track Name: Us Versus Them
DEAF, SILENT, AUTHORITY'S LIE,
THAT YOUR VOICE IS NOTHING SO YOU FALL INTO LINE.

FAKE. FAKE. FAKE.

SO-CALLED LEADERS, PURE MISDIRECTION,
OUR LIVES ARE BLINDED BY CORPORATE GREED.
MONEY HAS TAINTED THE MINDS OF MAN,
LIFE’S MEANING, DRAWN IN THE SAND.

TIME WASTES AWAY.
HISTORY IN VAIN.

WASTE AWAY.
MAKE A STAND.

WHEN YOU BELIEVE YOUR VOICE HAS NO STRENGTH,
YOU BURY YOURSELF, YOU'VE TAKEN AWAY,
THE POWER THAT LIES WITHIN YOUR SOUL,
TO STAND UP AGAINST THE LIES YOU'VE BE TOLD.

TIME WASTES AWAY.
HISTORY IN VAIN.

WASTE AWAY.

DEAF, SILENT, AUTHORITY'S LIE.

DON'T LET A SYSTEM OF CORRUPTION THRIVE
ON SILENCING YOUR VOICE, YOU'VE BEEN FED A LIE.
DON'T STAND AROUND AND WATCH YOUR BROTHER'S DIE. AMERICA WAS FOUNDED ON OUR FREEDOM OF RIGHTS.
Track Name: Buried In Sin
BOXED IN THIS HOPELESS WORLD,
SOMETHING I DESPISE.
TRAPPED IN A HOPELESS WORLD,
BURNING IN A SEA OF LIES.
IMPRISONED, MY CRIME UNKNOWN,
MY FATE YET TO BE SEEN.
TORMENTED, MY CRIME UNKNOWN,
JUST A VICTIM OF YOUR ENDLESS GREED.

BOXED IN THIS HOPELESS WORLD,
SOMETHING I DESPISE.
TRAPPED IN A HOPELESS WORLD,
BURNING IN A SEA OF LIES.

FALL TO MY KNEES,
ASKING WHY HAPPINESS IS AN UN-REACHED GOAL.
THIS WORLD HAS LEFT ME BEATEN DOWN,
NO REDEMPTION FOR MY BROKEN SOUL.
I REACT TO THE WORLD I SEE, MY DECLINE BEGINS.
SO I BRACE MYSELF AND DO WHAT I CAN
TO FIND COMFORT IN THIS WORLD OF SIN.
Track Name: My Enemy
BELITTLE ME, PUT DOWN MY BELIEFS,
YOU HAVE BECOME MY ENEMY.
YOU CAN ONLY PUSH ME SO FAR,
BEFORE I SNAP, BEFORE I REACT.

YOUR TIME HAS RUN OUT,
NOW YOU MUST LEARN THAT,
THE WAY YOU ACT, YOUR LACK OF RESPECT,
GONE NOWHERE FAST, YOU'LL FILL WITH REGRET.

MY HATRED BUILDS, I HOLD IT INSIDE.
YOU BETTER PRAY, BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.

SO HEAR ME, MARK MY WORDS.

IT WON'T LAST LONG AND I’LL LOSE
ALL CONTROL OF MY SELF.
YOU THINK IT’S OK TO GAIN FROM OTHER’S PAIN?
TO LIVE LIFE LIKE A GAME?
I’VE HAD ENOUGH, YOU MUST PAY.

BELITTLE ME, PUT DOWN MY BELIEFS,
YOU HAVE BECOME MY ENEMY.
YOU CAN ONLY PUSH ME SO FAR,
BEFORE I SNAP, BEFORE I REACT.

IT DIDN’T HAVE TO COME TO THIS,
YOU COULD HAVE STOPPED WHEN YOU HAD THE CHANCE. BUT WE BOTH KNOW YOU'RE TOO WEAK,
CLOSE-MINDED, JUST ONE OF THE SHEEP.
Track Name: Drowning
NO ROOM FOR LOVE IN THIS HEART OF STONE,
NO SECOND CHANCES WITH ME, I'LL GO THROUGH LIFE ALONE. EVERY ACTION I TAKE, THE RESULT OF HATE,
I SHOW NO MERCY FOR YOU AND NOW IT'S TOO LATE.
DEAD END EXISTENCE STARING BACK AT ME,
I CANNOT BE CONTENT BREATHING LIFE'S DISEASE.
WOKE UP TO A LIFE OF NOTHING, PAIN IS ALL I SEE.

IT'S TOO LATE.

I CANNOT TAKE THESE SURROUNDINGS,
SO NOW IT'S ONE MORE NIGHT OF DROWNING.
ANGER BUILDS IN MY CONSCIOUS MIND,
I CAN'T EXPLAIN THE WAY I FEEL INSIDE.

NO ROOM FOR LOVE IN THIS HEART OF STONE,
NO SECOND CHANCES WITH ME,
I'LL GO THROUGH LIFE ALONE.
EVERY ACTION I TAKE, THE RESULT OF HATE,
I SHOW NO MERCY FOR YOU AND NOW IT'S TOO LATE.
DEAD END EXISTENCE STARING BACK AT ME,
I CANNOT BE CONTENT BREATHING LIFE'S DISEASE.
WOKE UP TO A LIFE OF NOTHING, PAIN IS ALL I SEE.
