Track Name: Repression
YOU SEEM TOO WELL TO ME
THOUGH ALL THINGS GOT OUT OF HAND
SEEMS LIKE YOU JUST CAN'T SEE
ALL THE THOUGHTS THAT YOU'VE BANNED

BURIED SOMEWHERE DEEP INSIDE
IS EVERYTHING THAT YOU'VE DENIED
I WISH ONE DAY YOU COULD SEE
THAT YOUR DREAMS AREN'T REALITY

LOST TOUCH
WITH THIS WORLD
LOST TOUCH
WITH YOURSELF
REPRESSION!

YOU WON'T ACCEPT THE FACTS
LIKE IT'S ALL JUST A GAME
KEEP ON PLAYING YOUR ACT
IN THIS SHOWPLACE OF FAME

SOME SAY IGNORANCE IS BLISS
BUT WHAT IF IT ALL COMES BACK
RIGHT BACK TO YOUR FRONT DOOR
YOU'LL BE DAMNED FOR SURE
Track Name: Anesthetic
MAKE ME FORGET IT ALL
ONCE AGAIN AND AGAIN
HELP ME FILL THE VOID
RELEASE ME FROM THIS PAIN

DRIFT INTO A DREAM
CHEAP THRILLS AND MEDICINE
KEEP FLOATING DOWNSTREAM
AMBITIONS AND ABSTRACTION
AMBITIONS AND ABSTRACTION

DON'T REGRET A THING
AT THIS POINT IN TIME
THE FRAGILE BLISS IT BRINGS
IS JUST THE PERFECT CRIME

ANTICIPATION
LEADS OUR WAY
A FICTIVE DELUSION
INTO A LOST DAY

MAKE ME FEEL NOTHING AT ALL
MAKE ME SEE NOTHING AT ALL
MAKE ME BELIEVE IN NOTHING AT ALL
MAKE ME REGRET NOTHING AT ALL

ANESTHETIC, ANESTHETIC...
Track Name: Lilith
CIGARETTE BURNS ON HER HANDS
SHE LEARNED TO CRY ON DEMAND
THIS STORY IN HER HEAD
WILL MAKE UP FOR THE TEARS SHE SHED

HIDING BEHIND A WALL OF GRIEF
TO SHELTER HER FRAGILE SOUL
DEGRADED BY HER DISBELIEF
AND ALL THE DREAMS SHE STOLE

SHE'S A DEMON!
A DEMON IN YOU
SHE'S A DEMON!
A DEMON IN ME
A DEEP ATTRACTION TO THIS INTENT
KEEPS YOU BOUND IN THIS TORMENT
IT KEEPS YOU BOUND, IT KEEPS YOU BOUND...

SHE'S IN CONTROL OF EVERYTHING SHE SEES
HER EYES ARE BLACK HOLES
FILLED WITH HER DISEASE

SHE'S GONNA CUT YOUR INSIDES
BETTER RUN FROM THE TIDE
SHE'S GOING TO SELL HER STYLE
VENOMOUS TONGUE AND A FAKE SMILE
Track Name: Stigma
A FEAR OF MISTAKES
TAKES A HOLD OF YOU
EVERY BONE ACHES
YOU CAN'T SEE IT THROUGH

THE PAST IS A MESSENGER
WARNING YOU AT ONCE
YOU'RE JUST A PASSENGER
LIKE ALL THE OTHER ONES

YOU GOT A STIGMA BEHIND YOUR SMILE
A STIGMA BEHIND YOUR EYES

STIGMA!

YOU'LL BE DEMONIZED BY YOUR INSIDES

STIGMA!
STIGMA!

PASS IT ON TO ME
YOUR DELUSIVE BELIEFS
WHEN THE PAST MAKES THE PRESENT
YOU WILL NEVER BE FREE
Track Name: Cyst
CAPTURED IN BETWEEN
REALITY AND A DREAM
FRICTION AND CONFLICT
A NATURAL CONVICT

SHOULD IT BE REAL OR FAKE?
DO YOU EVEN CARE?
ARE YOU AWAKE?
WAKE UP IF YOU DARE!

THE DOOR IS CLOSING IN
YOU LOCKED YOURSELF AWAY
IN AN IMAGINARY WORLD
YOU LOST EVERY WAY

DROWNING IN BLISS
A MERE FULFILLMENT
IGNORE WHAT YOU MISS
A FALSE COMMITMENT


WAKE UP!

WAKE UP!

IF YOU DARE


HOPES AND DREAMS DON'T MEAN A THING
IF YOU JUST KEEP ON HIDING
IN A STATE OF YOUR CONSTRUCTION
A STATE OF YOUR CONSTRUCTION
Track Name: Arsenic
IT'S GETTING HARD TO BREATHE
I CAN'T MOVE A MUSCLE
EVERYTHING I RECEIVE
SUSTAINS A CONSTANT STRUGGLE

SOILED BY PURITY
YOU TURN YOUR HARMLESS NATURE
OH MY INTEGRITY
YOU LEAVE THIS FRAGILE CREATURE


ARSENIC!
YOU EXPLOIT MY WEAKNESS
ARSENIC!
YOU EVOKE MY SICKNESS


THERE AIN'T NO ANTIDOTE
THERE'S NOTHING TO RETRIEVE
GIVE IN TO THE POISON
STOP SEARCHING FOR RELIEF
Track Name: Euthanized
THE DECISION HAS BEEN MADE
TO END THIS CONSTANT ENDEAVOR
THE ONLY DESTINY AND FATE
IS TO VANISH FOREVER

NO COMPROMISE OR AMENDMENT
THIS DECISION IS FOR THE BEST
A REVEALING FINAL STATEMENT
YOUR SOUL WILL BE BLESSED

AN ACT OF PURE FORGIVENESS
TOUCHED BY THE HAND OF GOD
BREAKING THROUGH THE GATES
REVEALING THE LAST FACADE

GENTLY PUT ME TO ETERNAL SLEEP
EXPECTATIONS...CUT OFF
PROMISES...CUT OFF
GENTLY FADE INTO AN ETERNAL DREAM
HOPES...CUT OFF
DESIRES...CUT OFF
Track Name: No Favour
I WON'T DO THIS FOR YOU
IF YOU REACH OUT A HAND
YOUR SICK INTENTIONS
WILL NEVER GO AS PLANNED

I WILL TURN IT AROUND
YOUR STUPID LITTLE GAME
EVERYTHING YOU'VE FOUND
WILL MAKE YOU FEEL ASHAMED

THERE'S NO FAVOUR
FOR YOU OR ANYONE ELSE
THERE'S NO SAVIOUR
FOR ME OR ANYONE ELSE

THERE'S NO FAVOUR!

YOU TURN AGAINST ME
IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE
AIN'T NO SENSE OR REASON
FOR YOU TO JUSTIFY
IGNORANCE AND RAGE
KEEPS YOU OCCUPIED
YOUR WILFUL BEHAVIOUR
KEEPS ME TERRIFIED
Track Name: Order & Violence
YOU'RE REACHING FOR THE UNKNOWN
TRYING TO HAVE IT ALL
TILL YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN
PRIDE BEFORE THE FALL

BETWEEN ORDER AND VIOLENCE
AFTER LAUGHTER COMES SILENCE
ORDER AND VIOLENCE!
LAUGHTER AND SILENCE!

WHEN EVERYTHING GETS OUT OF HAND
ESCAPE TO A DISTANT LAND
REVEAL YOURSELF AT LAST
THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS

TRY TO KEEP THE BALANCE TILL YOU'RE FALLING DOWN
THERE AIN'T NO DIFFERENCE TILL YOU HIT THE GROUND
Track Name: Shell Shock
YOU THOUGHT YOU'D GET AWAY
LEAVE WITHOUT A TRACE
THIS IS JUDGEMENT DAY
I SEE THE CRACKS
IN YOUR FACE

MEMORIES OF FEAR
MEMORIES OF PAIN
CRAWLING UP YOUR SPINE
YOU WILL TURN INSANE
HOLD THE LINE

A BULLET TO THE HEAD
YOU'RE LIKE A BULLET
A BULLET TO THE HEAD

SHELL SHOCK!

EMPTINESS IN YOUR EYES
A THOUSAND YARD STARE
COVER IT UP WITH LIES
OR JUST LET IT OUT
IF YOU DARE
Track Name: Requiem
I'LL SACRIFICE MY SOUL
TO THE NEW WORLD ORDER
FAREWELL TO THE GOODWILL
APATHY WAITS ROUND THE CORNER

THIS IS A REQUIEM FOR MY SOUL
THIS IS A REQUIEM FOR US ALL
THIS IS YOUR PRIDE...
YOUR PRIDE BEFORE YOUR FALL

THIS ETERNAL GIFT
YOU'LL RECEIVE AT LAST
IT'S NOTHING BUT A BAD DREAM
A NIGHTMARE OF THE PAST
