Track Name: Everything Returns to Dust
I came here to stone you; will you turn your cheek?
I came here alone now; shield the young and the meek
Clouds of anger, fists of rage
Through the darkness a violent stage
Gripped with fear, you die a slave
Dig for you, a shallow grave
No witness, it’s only us
Everything returns to dust

Bring the living before me; I’ll put the weary to rest
Violent retributions; put your flesh to the test
Times a taker of all living things, and you’re a puppet on its strings
Gripped with fear, you die a slave
Dig for you, a shallow grave
No witness, it’s only us
Everything returns to dust

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

To see my face before you; then you know it’s too late
Reveal my true form to you; steal the breath of your fate
Times a taker of all living things, and you’re a puppet on its strings
Gripped with fear, you die a slave
Dig for you, a shallow grave
No witness, it’s only us
Everything returns to dust
Return to dust
Track Name: Scream at the Sun
You say the fire came from the sun
Ordered by the anointed one
And all the time you had was your own
Now the time has passed you by
And withered in the lookers eye
Silver like the wizards of lore

Now you sit and scream at the sun
Lonely like the eldest one
Blisters form beneath the skin
Now you sit and scream at the sun
Helpless as an infant one
Pestilence starts from within
Bomb dropped from the Enola Gay
Came from the sky from miles away
60 years now to the day
We watched them melt
We watched them burn
They’re children died we’ll never learn
How can we live with ourselves, no way
Oh how they scream at the sun
Mothers mourn for the missing ones
As the radiation eats from within
Oh how they scream at the sun scream at the sun
Fathers weep for the chosen ones
And the cancer…slowly will win
The bomb is not a resolution
And it’s not a way to live
It’s a means for an execution
And a means that we can’t forgive
Man wants to rule this world
Even if by fire
Man wants respect in the land
But no one follows liars
Now he sits and stares at the sun
Helpless as an infant one
Blistering and burning
Now he stares at the sun again
Blistering and burning stares at the sun…blind eyes dead
Now he sits and screams at the sun
Blistering and burning
Repeat
Track Name: It's Just The...
I hate it when you beat me, feel abandoned when you don’t
I get afraid when you leave me, and I’m scared when you don’t
Why do you leave me with so much pain inside
It’s just the fear of love
It’s just the fear of hate
It’s just the fear of everything that’s you, it’s just the fear
You are a bitter man who once had his pride
And there is no where left to hide
It’s time to die
It’s just the fear of you
It’s just the fear of love
It’s just the fear of hate
It’s just the fear of everything that’s you, it’s just the fear
You control me with your anger, and you fill me with your shame
Your life is built on fear, and you’re the only one to blame
Why do you leave me with so much pain inside
The things you’ve done to my mind
The things you’ve done to my soul
The things I’m gonna do to you
The abused will abuse
And I am about to break
Love… It’s just the fear of hate
It’s just the fear of everything that’s you, it’s just the fear
Pay close attention to what I’m about to do
I’m gonna focus all my anger, gonna take it out on you
I will leave you with so much pain inside
It’s just the fear of Life
It’s just the fear of Death
It’s just the fear of Me
It’s just the fear of Me!
Track Name: Miscreation
Boy…Don’t Push me
Boy…it’s to Late
I am seeing red
All control is all gone
Why’d you have to lie
Now you have to die
I’ll break my fucken foot off in your ass
You will never last
I don’t think you’ll live through this
You will never see my face
Gone without a trace
No one will never even know your name
You look into my eyes
Then you slowly die for this
Keep my name from your lips
Track Name: Chant of the Misanthropic
Marked by hatred for mankind
Isolated from society
They, them, all…are my enemies
I, am my own enemy
Here I sit, alone in the dark
The sun has set and black now covers me
..and still I sit, alone in the dark
Wondering what my soul looks like underneath all this skin, and where do I begin
There’s no sympathy today
…and nothing left to say

There you sit, alone in the dark
I wonder what your skull looks like underneath all that skin
Where it ends, or it begins

There’s nothing left for us to say
…and so we pass and go our separate ways
Your ways that way and I have lost my way home
No way home
No way home for me today
Track Name: End of Peace
It was only yesterday, that you were gone
My life turned upside down, isolation calls
Your lips burned poison, your tongue spoke pain
Your eyes threw daggers deep into my veins
The battle that rages inside you, is a feeling that haunts me
No signs of forgiveness, no signs of peace!

Peace, Love, Hate

So this is how it feels, to be alone
No piercing stare that cuts me to the bone
Blood runs off my tongue, you better run
No longer love, all I feel is hate
The battle that rages inside me, is a feeling that haunts you
No signs of forgiveness, no signs of peace!
Is this the ending, or a new beginning?
Will this war ever cease?
Is this the end, the end of peace?

The battle that rages inside me, is a feeling that haunts you
No signs of forgiveness, no signs of peace!
Track Name: The Oldest Profession
We want it all
We want it now
We want it all and we don’t care how
Sex, drugs, money…GO!
A no talent beauty queen
Just arrived on the scene
5 minutes of fame
And we forgot your name
Be honest baby, that’s how it is
Everybody wanted you baby, everybody needed you baby
Be honest honey, that’s how it is
Everybody wanted you baby, everybody needed you lady
How low how low can you go?
How high how high can you get?
How low how low will you go, how low will go till you sell your soul?
You blew it lady, that’s how it is
Well C’mon
Silicone in your tits
Collagen in your lips
You sold your soul
For a dollar you’ll take off your clothes
Wink in the camera’s eye
And then you spread your thighs
Congratulations girl you’ve made the big time
C’mon girl
How low, how low, how low how low will you go?
Sex tape, for free, just to get on T.V
She wants it all: YEAH!
She wants it now: NOW!
She wants it all and she don’t care how
Take it off: YEAH!
Get on the floor: YEAH!
Let me hear you scream, MORE, MORE, MORE!
C’Mon
Spoon fed and Greedy
Televised in 3D
We sold our souls for a scripted identity
No clue what we need
Eliminate, eat, and breed
We blew it baby, I mean it big time
How low will we go until we sell our soul
How low will we go until we get so high
We want it all: Yeah!
We want it now: Now!
We want it all and we don’t care how
Let me see your hands:YEAH!
Up in the air: AIR!
Now wave them like you just don’t care
Raise your voice: YEAH!
For the world to hear: HEAR!
Scream it loud like you have no fear
Hold up your drinks: DRINK!
Hi in the air: YEAH!
Now pound em’ down like you just don’t care
Rip it off: Yeah!
Burn it down: DOWN!
Show your swagger and rule this town
We want it all: Yeah!
We want it now: Now!
We want it all and we don’t care how

Track Name: The Palace of the Dead
Born in the Shadows, a creature of the dark
Raised by the spirits, bearing the Reapers mark
The worms eat from my eyes, and swallow all my lies
In this temple of denial, I arise to walk the catacombs
I think the writing said...It is the Palace of the Dead
The Palace of the Dead

The weak shall inherit the after birth, the meek shall inherit my wrath
Black waters in a dark canyon, flow through my soul
I can hear a voice calling to me... Welcome to the Palace of the Dead
Welcome to
Welcome to Palace of the Dead
Welcome to Palace of the Dead

Circumference of the darkness, choking out the light
Figures cloaked in shadow, on an endless night

Thou shalt not reveal, no

Leave all hope at the gates…No hope…at the Palace of the Dead
I left all hope at the gates
THE DEAD

They buried me in the earth of kings
THE DEAD
And surrounded me with ethereal things
THE DEAD
I have passed on to the…The Palace of the Dead
Track Name: Fear They Neighbor
You’re scared alone and hiding in your home
Feel the dark conspire
You've lost your faith
You close your eyes, slumber you desire
The obscure consumes
Fear thy neighbor
Why do you tremble?
Why do you weep?
Close your eyes and pretend to sleep
...and I desire
I sneak in
Without being seen
No one will ever hear you scream
...your life is over
Fear thy neighbor

Look in my eyes
And see the fire burning cold
It's a lonely road
A burden I carry all my own
I wear the badge of fear
I need control when you’re here

I fool all with my disguise
Lurking, hiding there somewhere in the dark

I move just a little closer
Dizzy feel I’m slipping standing at the edge
This is what I said
Fear thy neighbor

With a mask and a guise of sanity
Calls to the voice inside my head
Fear thy neighbor
The urge grows stronger can’t deny it any longer
Soon you’ll all be dead
Fear thy neighbor

This power is like no other
The need to sadistically dominate
It won’t go away, today
Track Name: Tell Me
I will not wait in line
I will not lay down and die
I will not fight these pages, wrote them on my own

And then you…read these pages, memorize
Then recite them back and see
Realize the lies you have inside
And then just let me be
Get far away from me
And then let me be

Tell me today is the time
To fucken put your ass on the line
And fill these pages with your lies and your goodbyes

And then you…read these pages, memorize
Then recite them back and see
Realize the lies you have inside
And then just let me be

I will not wait in line
I will not lay down and die
I will not fight these pages, wrote them on my own

And then you…read these pages, memorize
Then recite them back and see
Realize the lies you have inside
And then just let me be
Get far away from me
And then let me be

Tell me its time to let my feelings go
Track Name: Shadows
In the light of the day
In a blink of an eye
A shadow it passes your way

From deep in your past
Escaping your sight
A shadow it hides in your mind

It starts as a thought
A footprint in time
Images triggered by pain

Unfocused and vague
Your senses unclear
The shadow forgotten reveals

Shadows-a footprint in time
They hide in your mind
Shadows-they,ve caught up to you
You may never be free
Shadows-in the dark of the day
The forgotten revealed
Shadows-focused and clear

Feeling once lost
Now buried alive
Now starring you straight in the face

There’s no were to run
There’s no were to hide
Shadows remember your name

In the dark of the night
To the shadows delight
A glimpse of the past in unveiled

You watch it unfold
As if you were there
Your greatest fear rises in truth
