Track Name: A Fading Existence
Welcome to a new age of control of the masses,
Only lay back and wait until we get you to your own grave.
And don't look so shocked at the end,
When you realize you lived a fucking
Pointless life.
Trapped by their screens, all day long,
Mindless people sitting alone in their homes.
Living by the expense of other's bones,
Looking like driven by a digital siren song.
Claim back your lost vitality
And see the world with your own eyes.
Shout it! I no longer want to allow it!
There's a way to escape from this dishonest shape.
Go! We have a lot of thing to show!
We're not afraid of the strange, we're pushing for the change.
Claim back your almost lost vitality
And see the world with your own eyes.
Free yourself from that distorted reality,
That other people builded upon endless lies.
All the things you proudly own,
Will end up owning you.
No, I won't fall down this hole,
fail myself and lose control.
Everything I was going to be,
I can still find it in me.
No, I won't fall down this hole,
fail myself and lose control.
Trapped by their screens, all day long,
Mindless people sitting alone in their homes.
Living by the expense of other's bones,
Looking like driven by a digital siren song.
Track Name: Broken Sight
Am I the only one who is feeling the pain,
Of a lifetime of fights that I have done in vain?
I'm just a far cry of what I could have been.
I will never return. Regrets last forever.
The same old story over and over again.
I can only see the ghosts of what I could have done.
You think it's easy to let go all my regrets.
Then tell me why I cannot get it out of my head.
Out of my head, no.
Crushed by the weight of the world
Am I the only one who is feeling the pain,
Of a lifetime of fights that I have done in vain.
Nothing, will bring back what I had.
Close your eyes.
Nothing, I am dead in the dark.
Why?
The same old story over and over again.
I can only see the ghosts of what I could have done.
You think it's easy to let go all my regrets.
Then tell me why I cannot get it out of my head.
Track Name: In My Skin
I don't care what you think,
What you think about me, no.
I hear people talk shit, they just throw it, about things they don't know.
A constant flow, of meaningless words crashing down to the floor,
It's hard to ignore yeah, but you know,
It's 'cause they have nothing else to put to the show.
Just follow your own way.
Don't lose time, having them in your thoughts.
I don't care what you think,
What you think about me.
What can I tell, you don't already know?
The world is so, people create hate.
Time is ticking away, time is ticking away.
I'm sick and tired of this shit.
It never gonna end, it's not a secret, we all know it.
And you can tell me what you want.
I just gonna to pretend like you're not trying to flaunt.
I'm sick and tired of this shit.
It never gonna end, it's not a secret, we all know it.
You're making a fool of yourself.
Just get the fuck away 'cause I have no more to say.
I will not bow to your will,
You can't get nothing from me.
You're dead inside yourself,
There is no respect for you.
I don't care what you think,
What you think about me.
I don't care if you burn in hell.
Track Name: Code
All you see, are codes hiding an odyssey.
No other place to live in.
Stay or begin,
A lonely road from our home,
Where all sorrow is gone.
Exist for my progeny or die by our sins.
Father don't leave me here behind.
Living a life of sacrifice.
Father don't let me die.
All you see, are codes hiding an odyssey.
Father don't leave me here behind.
Living a life of sacrifice.
Father don't let me die.
All the fears you had
Are now part of the past.
Left as an empty grave.
A dusty planet is all what remains.
Track Name: Haunting Memories
Fuck, trapped inside a story I can't find a way to flee.
I don't trust you.
Broken you lay here.
I won't follow you.
Hiding from your fear.
Broken and lost.
I've had enough of this craziness.
You always tried to make me feel disgraced.
I wanted to fight till the end.
Never found a way to understand.
I ran away, away from everything that is haunting me.
I ran away, until all memories faded off my heart.
I ran away, away from everything, away from everything.
I ran away, until all memories faded off my heart.
Never thought this would happen to me.
Trapped inside a story I can't find a way to flee.
A heavy heart in my chest, living a life of unrest.
It's time to end this oppression. I don't have any question
That's the way to move on, just leave behind all bygones.
I've seen a way to escape, I'll run before it's too late.
You'll never see me again.
Never see me again.
Going mad from this life of despair.
Never see me again.
Anyway, always wrong and insane.
I ran away, away from everything that is haunting me.
I ran away, until all memories faded off my heart.
I ran away, away from everything, away from everything.
I ran away, until all memories faded off my heart.
I ran away, away from everything that's haunting me.
I ran away, until all memories faded off my.
I ran away, until all memories faded off my heart.
Track Name: Dead End
And once again I'm walking into the emptiness.
We all live in a world full of pain.
Where thousands of lives are lost in vain.
Day after day, the story never ends.
No place to hide from this sad reality.
And once again I'm walking into the emptiness.
Lost in an endless world of despair.
I can no longer turn a blind eye to this situation.
Watching all these people live in endless desperation.
Fire burning the world to the ground, nothing is found.
Future is being lost by my hand, an empty land.
Another day, another fray.
It's all the same, we live in shame.
I'm running blind between other's lives having their fate in my shaking hands.
Thrown inside a never ending fight chasing a greater good to only find a,
Dead end.
Track Name: Landmarks
Let go, let go, forget all things you know.
Bring out your inner thoughts and let them flow untill they grow.
Let go, for all I know.
You have the will to fight you only need to prove me right.
I don't think, I don't think you understand.
We have at hand another chance of making up
For all the things we broke and then forgot.
We are the ones, ready to fight again.
For a new world to see, another dream to live.
We're not afraid of falling to the ground.
Cause we will rise again and hold on till the end.
Follow our lead without regret.
A new dawn is coming.
We will reborn, we will reborn.
No, we will no longer hide.
We are the ones, ready to fight again.
For a new world to see, another dream to live.
We're not afraid of falling to the ground.
Cause we will rise again and hold on till the end.
You might have tried to move along, living a life of pride.
But wrong hopes won't help you out.
Let go, let go, forget all things you know.
Bring out your inner thoughts and let them flow untill they grow.
Let go, for all I know.
You have the will to fight you only need to prove me right.
We are the ones, ready to fight again.
For a new world to see, another dream to live.
We're not afraid of falling to the ground.
Cause we will rise again and hold on till the end.
Track Name: Open Eyes
Open your eyes!
Free yourself from the dark shadows blocking your sight.
Cast aside the digital illusion that is controling you from the inside of your helpless mind.
I'll never rest untill the end of this human descend.
I'll never rest untill the end, untill there's nothing left to unbend.
Renounce to their tries of controlling the way to see your life.
Slowly dying every day to meet the people's expectations.
You are fine the way you are there is no need for imitations.
We have been torn apart by this idea for generations.
It's time to live our own way this is our fucking declaration.
Break the chains of this mental subjugation, our thoughts are meant to make us free.
Don't believe in the tales of other people that only want to make you agree.
I'll never rest untill the end, of this human descend.
I'll never rest untill the end, untill there's nothing left to unbend.
Untill there's nothing left to unbend.
Break your chains.
Track Name: Time Lapse
The mist covered everything you know,
A drop shooked your world and you just feel the need to howl.
Release you from the chains of time,
Collide the ground and find your last line.
Burning cold and freezing heat.
Trying to comprehend these feelings,
I think something in me is incomplete.
Laying in this black hole, I can’t escape.
Everything looks like a big mistake.
Laying in this black hole, I can’t escape.
I am drowning in my own fate.
Burning cold and freezing heat.
Trying to comprehend these feelings,
I think something in me is incomplete.
Life goes on but I’m not welcomed.
I’m stuck in an endless storm.
Pushed back and forth in my despair
Hoping for a quick end.
I realize in my loneliness,
I am my only friend.
Time take me with you, I have nothing to lose.
I am no longer who I knew.
And in the darkness of my mind.
I feel lost and broken.
A piece of me forever left behind.
Time fades away and I'll be lost forever.
