I open my eyes to nothing Cannot change this world Gave up on myself, gave up on life Growing old an imitation of life Gave in to these failures again Dragging me deeper inside Use it to free my will submitting to this pain Survived by an instinct to not reveal Wounds on my body the symbols of strife Building reconnecting, the strength inside . . . Gave up on myself, gave up on life I force what I despise to suffer Cannot change this world Only a fool, or a madman submits Serenity comes when Calamity hits I Learn from the pain in my soul

It’s said they can’t be led this hypocrisy is laid A broken crown placed on dead minds another fool obeys Their confines enslave you in this space of decay They want you buried and tortured Atrophied into disarray Revulsion sets in The loathing begins Repulsion within Obedience rescinds Concuss the sadness that you fall prey Cut life’s attraction they’ll lead the way The years have passed and nothing’s changed Nothing’s remembered; but the pain’s the same They said they want you dead I see your end in blood and dismay A puncture torn through a dead minded soul another fool obeys Their confines enslave you in this space of decay They want you buried and tortured Atrophied into disarray

So lost you reach to this wound Departed memories of what made you Choked out upon this den of thieves In your distorted mind they sow disease Look in and reject this fate Despised by all men left to infuriate Hounds of death are pulling life out of me Far beyond my reach in this abyss The world beyond this hell in space I hear the call Calling me back to a life long ago Reaching out to be where I’m free On the seas of neglect I hear infinity’s call The last act upon this spell of lies Interpret the meaning of these desperate tides Hive thoughts to control False world of lies to behold The end time for me What lies beyond their absurdity? Look in and reject this fate Despised by all men left to infuriate Evisceration of the mind Living delusion leads to decline Don’t overthink reactions Don’t ever hesitate Impulse the driving force Let their world immolate

Cut this shape from this mold broken this image Numb to this world uncaring, unknowing There is no truth I am the end Into the mouth I go into abandonment Drawn alone the rage comes over me Disgust my mind this can’t be happening Find myself distant from the sane Laugh at me I am a fallacy One by one they die their words do nothing To smolder my rage the rage that burns inside There is no truth I am the end Into the mouth I go into abandonment Drawn alone the rage comes over me Disgust my mind this can’t be happening Find myself distant from the sane Laugh at me I am a fallacy

Inner Kill 04:04
Damned to be awakened Distrust in this apathy and the ignorance of modernity Death belongs to no one Deception by false truth I am a witness to this disguise It awakens stability It awakens my offerings For all I’ve known is my own hell For all I want is this (inner) kill . . . I confront my darkness I confront clemency Destiny, my decision Brings me to this end Damned to be awakened Distrust in my apathy and the ignorance that’s mine Death belongs to no man Misinterpreting the truth I am a witness to my demise It awakens stability It awakens my offerings For all I’ve known is my own hell For all I want is this kill . . .

Blind, blind to your worth I witness your decline Mask, Mask that you wear, your frail ego hides You lay down upon the rocks of disillusion “Why now, why me, this isn’t happening” Lies, lies that you sell a fool who cant tell Ignorance you create, in your absurdity you dwell Your existence is a blight, cut this cancer from my life Denying the right of the feeble minded Reject the deception but keep this hate alive To carry on and carry me until all else is gone You lay down upon the rocks of disillusion “Why now, why me, this isn’t happening” Nailed to this cross fooled by your lies You are the only reason, open your eyes Your existence is a blight, cut this cancer from my life Denying the right of the feeble minded Reject the deception but keep this hate To carry on and carry me until all else is gone

Being Erased 04:13
And I've been down here before The dead displayed The dead alone . . . This loss of life The past never repeats from choices made of suicide An end in shame This will not bring them back This will not bring you back A pain that when begins it never ends For those that try . . . . to save your life Missteps shape the time, the time they wasted on you time never returns . . . so die Asleep while still alive you waste your life A mercy lost on you . . . This will not bring it back This will not bring you back

Murder the cause conflicting views of long forgotten gods Culminate my hate the blood is warm on my face Rush of release my hate’s final song as this rage is set free Your final breath I take from you as you protest No second coming will bring your reward There is no light, there is no lord Existence void your conscious gone Darkness this end no more life beyond Reach out your god is gone No longer can you hear anyone Take this hatred and make them pay Drain the blood as I remain No second coming will bring your reward There is no light, there is no lord Existence void your conscious gone Darkness this end no more life beyond Murder the cause conflicting views of long forgotten gods Culminate my hate the blood is warm upon my face

No Hope 04:48
What have I become, what have I done Open the graves on my life Walking - through my Book of Revelation Open eyes exposed - is this the end? Dead men pull no plows on these memories I arose Lights dim to a dead-end world we’ve all been forgotten I tried, awaken no gods not mistaken This decent into madness rewrites the sadness Chosen the time is up you've long descend to usurp The king of the confused lays dead within the pews Unmanned the dread sinks in I contemplate this delusion Everyday detritus of my human existence What have I become, what have I done Giving into lies Open the graves on my life I tried, awaken no gods not mistaken This decent into madness rewrites the sadness No time to hesitate lose life to this hate Back to the ground where they’re sworn Erase beliefs where they’re born

The louder it gets the more it grows It hears, it sees, it knows what you are It can’t stop growing, its virtue knowing What you are, block out the noise A new revelation of what you’ve become Hopeless in your misery Generate your offense Done waiting for your collapse Heading to your dead end This repudiation of existence Fodder for the dirt and the gods to eat Desires of a hopeless soul Your ideals betray you –your hopes destroyed Load the despair into this machine Useless objection, It won’t change anything Your loathing becomes your end Indifference to a life destroyed The louder it gets the more it grows It hears, it sees, it knows what you are It can’t stop growing, its virtue knowing What you are, block out the noise A new revelation of what you’ve become Hopeless in your misery Generate your offense Done waiting for your collapse Heading to your dead end This repudiation of existence Fodder for the dirt and the gods to eat Desires of a hopeless soul Your ideals betray you –your hopes destroyed Born to a broken world But not aware of the emptiness you fill This hypocrisy that you live in A barrel in the mouth to erase your sin

about

Paradox of a Broken World juxtaposes the impending doom of a world coming undone at its seams with the consistent need for humans to deny their own reality.
