And as we wind on down this road See the ruins around us in dismay Eternity stares, opens its mouth And in its throat you hear the sound of judgement day Don't fear the end as all must die They come for us all, my last goodbye All my life I tried to find the rhyme and reason of this ride A flash before my eyes (Reconciled) with the burning world that's left behind We reached the point of no return Lost and ready to crash and burn Reveal the path that I must tread To find the silence in my head No more dwelling on the past This is the great escape at last We crawl Total collapse, the imminent end of it all For as I know, when I gaze upon your face What precious and fragile mean in this forsaken place And as I wind on down this road See your shadow weep and follow me My strides gain purpose, a wishful heart Whenever I wander, set me free We reached the point of no return Lost and ready to crash and burn Reveal the path that I must tread To find the silence in my head No more dwelling on the past This is the great escape at last We crawl Total collapse, the imminent end of it all All my life I tried to find the rhyme and reason of this ride A flash before my eyes (Reconciled) with the burning world that's left behind We reached the point of no return Lost and ready to crash and burn Reveal the path that I must tread To find the silence in my head No more dwelling on the past This is the great escape at last We crawl Total collapse, the imminent end of it all We crawl 4x

Long lost equilibrium of the earth Onwards to a dreadful rebirth We swallow deception With catatonic digestion In a hollow world full of empty shells Where no one ever succeeds and misery sells Can you hear the whispers in the night? This is a requiem for the dying light Breathing we suffocate In a society that loves to hate Buried by the lies All for one and none for all Until the final call We can't find What we're searching for inside our minds Holding tightly to the light that dies Because the truth will not unfold The deathless pounding of a frozen heart Like a terminal beat, the dye is cast With the fading light all will break apart A hopeless future, a shameful past Can you hear the whispers in the night? Forsaken creatures, mesmerized In a hollow world full of empty shells We claim we're alive Where insanity reigns and the moral dwells We claim that we thrive Fear the whispers in the night This is a requiem for the dying light Breathing we suffocate In a society that loves to hate Buried by the lies All for one and none for all Until the final call We can't find What we're searching for inside our minds Holding tightly to the light that dies When the truth will be told The light inside shines on You wanna know If the war inside will rage on The light inside is gone But the war inside will rage on Breathing we suffocate In a society that loves to hate | Buried by the lies All for one and none for all Choking we refuse to see The lie that became you and me We can't find What we're searching for inside our minds Holding tightly to the light that dies Because the truth will not unfold

My Demise 04:23
Living my life in exile And the only ally left has been worn out I've questioned myself What direction the cold wind will blow this time It seems that hope is just a myth My desire to be embraced Light up this blackened world Let my prayers be answered They say that ignorance is bliss Roll the dice for what it's worth This life’s a gift and I won't play the final chord Just can’t find this peace of mind There must be a way to stand the floods of tide So this is my demise I've gotta to face the facts no bold-faced lies Try to break the chains in search for I Then I’ll find the strength to rise When this is my demise I've gotta face the facts that I despise Restore the balance that's corroded by life Hopes and dreams won't fade in the sands of time Just can’t find this peace of mind There must be a way to stand the floods of tide So this is my demise I've gotta to face the facts no bold-faced lies Try to break the chains in search for I Then I’ll find the strength to rise When this is my demise I've gotta face the facts that I despise Restore the balance that's corroded by life Hopes and dreams won't fade in the sands of time

Scavengers 04:06
Every single bloody day again the world pours in my mind Cast away, gone astray, I wish I could be blind There is no sanctuary, there is no place to hide World’s corruption feeds their hunger No one to blame, oblivious scornfull pride You’re addicted to the life Like a scavenger that feeds The eternal pain will rise Fly above the blood of me Castaway, I'm on this ship to drift forevermore There is no place to hide, will I ever find the shore? Condemned to drift in an ocean of sorrow fed by tears The ever growing eagerness transcends the cries that no one hears You’re addicted to the life Like a scavenger that feeds The eternal pain will rise Fly above the blood of me Like the dead they walk the earth Left in their own hell Eternal slumber, was it worth it? Generous compassion, let them dwell Block the path of hopeless dreams A hollow gesture, diminished screams You’re addicted to the life Like a scavenger that feeds The eternal pain will rise Fly above the blood of me This world is naught but a feast for the scavenger crows 2x

It is that time once more To hide behind the mask Rotten to its core And ready for its task To give them hope and make things right Raging wars and genocide Screaming the lies with dedication For absolution and salvation And now the time has come To speak behind the veil Corrupt and twist and numb, as dead men tell no tales The treacherous dogmatic knife It cuts another life The mask we dread, the mask we wear Wages of sin, kickin' the chair Save your soul before it is too late Denying the line of fate Spreading the fear with dedication For absolution and salvation I am no one Just a word, you must have heard You know it’s true, you will believe You can’t deny you cannot leave I am everywhere A killing lie, a deadly stare I am all around Delirium, forever bound It is nothing but a whisper in your ear That digs into the conscience of mankind The evil that comes from all you fear To believe a lie Will eradicate Watch the world as we fall into the void The blackened skies Send us our fate Watch the world but it's too late I am no one Just a word, you must have heard You know it’s true, you will believe You can’t deny you cannot leave I am everywhere A killing lie, a deadly stare I am all around Delirium I am no one Treacherous are those who claim they know the way No guaranties in life or death exist, no matter what they say The thing that counts, the here and now as far as we will know I can't live without a doubt, I can't go down on my knees No more..

What's left behind while worlds collide Horizons await Holding the past and come with me To fly beyond the sun (beyond the sun) My mind it wanders, beyond the sun Sometimes in silence reflecting about what we've done Towards the sky we will live on (we will live on) Beyond the sun we will carry on What's left behind, our memories fade Horizons await Holding the past and fly with me Go beyond the sun (towards the sun) My mind it wanders, beyond the sun Sometimes in silence reflecting about what we've done Towards the sky we will live on (we will live on) Beyond the sun we will carry on (we will carry on) You'll never break these fucking chains (we will live on) Beyond the sun When my life is gone Will my mind carry on? When my life is gone Will my mind carry on? Towards the sky we will live on (we will live on) Beyond the sun we will carry on (we will carry on) You'll never break these fucking chains (we will live on) Beyond the sun

Adrift along this mortal shore The smell of death that fills the air What is and was and what will be no more (no more) Nothing will remain the same Buried in the silence of our name Like a thousand suns burst into the sky The dead will live as all the living die This is the end of the line In darkness our world descends Emptiness will fill the shrine Red clouds, fire in the sky So hard to realize That even death may die World of cruelty, sorrow fills the land Juggling with the power in their hands You can run but there is no way to hide From those who are dead inside Scarring the face of the planet with our progress 'Till there's nothing left to repress Ashes to ashes, no one to trust New world order, dust to dust This is the end of the line In darkness our world descends Emptiness will fill the shrine Red clouds, fire in the sky So hard to realize That even death may die Climbing the ladder of technology While we shape our own abduction To confirm the god that's inside me And march towards a mass destruction This is a countdown Our world will soon come to an end So fuckin’ bow down We warm our hands on the flames of a dying fire It sounds so absurd, a dirge for a dead world We leave this world and it won't take us higher All that's left behind The ashes of our, of our existence This is a countdown Our world will soon come to an end So fuckin’ bow down This is a countdown to nothingness Reshape the earth, drain the sea Bury the mountains and set me free This is the end of the line In darkness our world descends Emptiness will fill the shrine Red clouds, fire in the sky So hard to realize That even death may die Climbing the ladder of technology While we shape our own abduction To confirm the god that's inside me And march towards a mass destruction March towards a mass destruction

Staring at a callous world Ignorant eyes with desire for freedom To await the final hour Without a choice, bound to be devoured without sin or shame All of their lives, filled with pain Ill-treated, turned into slaves If they could drown us in our own disgrace Unable to resist the hand of fate Human greed grows equally with their weight Never understanding when you hurt them with your hands Crushing hearts made out of stone Embodiment of the unknown We are the voice, for those being left alone We are the ones who will fight Between the truth and the lies We are ones in disguise We are ones who can try The past is overthrown There is a long way, it is a long way home I'll break your every bone And send you straight to hell Justice be done to overcome A disgraceful life in me Open up the sky and bleed Compassion is blown away Always willing to give but so easy to break They try to find comfort in decay Chosen to deceive by a vicious race Killing for recreation Built on a hard-grained foundation Society goes down the drain Can you image if oppression starts to reign? Crushing hearts made out of stone Embodiment of the unknown We are the voice, for those being left alone

Salvation 03:47
Awake Shape dreams when you see them coming for real As they bring you sight and salvation Seize the day This life runs out in the blink of eye And hold it close, so you can hear the marvel of creation The lines, they dissipate Make way for your fate Behold the strength, I shall reveal (Where truth is the fire) My will to live, I shall endure I will not stray ‘cause I am pure (That lights your way ) Finally there's a reason to remain You won't hold back, no There's a reason to remain Forever in vain Salvation, yours to obtain Chakra alight, I travelled far Sparkling immaculate star Gather strength in the ancient dance of fate Maze unfold, it's time to destinate Behold the strength, I shall reveal Defy my path, I shall endure I will not stray, ‘cause I am pure I am pure Finally there's a reason to remain You won't hold back, no There's a reason to remain Forever in vain Salvation, yours to obtain Finally there's a reason to remain You won't hold back, no There's a reason to remain Forever in vain Salvation, yours to obtain
