Track Name: Rapid Fire
Falling down
I’m on the other side
Nothing matters now
My soul has died
Looking back through the glass
At an empty room
Point the gun to my head
And go out with a
BOOM

All alone
This curse locked in my head
Sick and tired
As I lie in my bed
It’s dark here and I can’t see the light
I close my eyes and lose myself in the night

On the ground
My faith buried in a hole
It’s raining down on my
Manufactured Soul
I can’t breath
I just wanna fucking scream
This isn’t fair
I wish it all was a dream

On the cross
High here in the sky
The clouds are gray
And I still wonder why
I’m not feeling
In my world one is two
It doesn’t matter
Now my gun’s pointing right at you

Rapid Fire
Bullet shells falling to the floor
Reload the gun
And fire it off some more
Track Name: Technology
Look through the window
Step through the door
Ignite the fire
Prepare for war
Download the system
Into your head
Incoming frequency
Empty and dead

Technology

Close your eyes
You will see
Close your eyes
Don’t listen to me

Technology

Sifting through the ashes
Of what I see
Lost in a cold dark world
With this technology
Forced to program
Nightmares in your head
Living machines of war
Feeling
Dead

Dead
So, dead
Track Name: Depression Vortex
Face down, in bed
Burned out, half dead
Closing my eyes to the world I see
This fucked up reality

Empty shadows rule the night
Chaotic forces begin to fight
Synthetic forms are everything I see
Building up inside of me

Statues falling to the ground
Programming black holes in this sound
And nothings all that I could ever be
The machines inside of me

Motionless and growing cold
There’s nothing left, it’s getting old
I self destruct for everyone to see
There’s nothing here for me

Face down, in bed
And the bell keeps ringing in the back of my head
The back of my head
In the back of my head

Burned out, half dead
And the clock keeps ticking in the back of my head
The back of my head
In the back of my head
Track Name: The Drain
Turn around
Get down
Fall to the ground
In space
Your face
Is what I have found
No time
This rhyme’s not what it should be
To waste a taste
Means nothing to me

Inside I hide
A heart that’s turned to gray
The sky above
Will wash it all away
The bits of glass
Left scattered on the ground
Inside the hole
I buried what I found

Standing still in the falling rain
As it comes pouring down
Pouring down the drain

Standing still in the falling rain
As it comes pouring down
Down the fucking drain

Drowning out the pain

Turn around
Get down
Fall to the ground
In space
Your face
Is what I have found
No time
This rhyme’s not what it could be
To waste a taste
Means nothing to me

In time you’ll find
There’s nothing left to say
The noise inside that just won’t go away
Below the cracks
Left frozen on the ground
The pulse that flows
Into the broken sound
Track Name: Sky Terror
One to Three

My eyes are red
As I stare at our dead sun
Under this darkening sky
The colors start to run
Falling stars burn my face
As I look around
Bodies fall everywhere to the ground
Lost what I had left
In the cold dead blue
The clouded sky transforms
And with it I will to

Terror came from the sky
Struck me down
I don’t know why

Tension building in the air
Turn me over I don’t care
Dark illusions cloud the brain
Numbness blocking out the pain
All the faces that I see
Crumbling down in front of me
Broken moments washed away
The sky above is turning gray
Deep inside disease is found
Buried underneath the ground
Bound in chains and waiting to be free
The terror in me

Terror came from the sky
Struck me down
I don’t know why
Track Name: Get Out
Is this a dream?
Or is this real?
Am I alive?
What do I feel?

All alone in time
I don’t know what to do
There is no going back
There is no way back through
All alone in this time
I don’t know what to do
There is no going back
They left me behind too / They let me inside you

Don’t stop
Don’t stop
Don’t, Don’t, Don’t, Don’t
Don’t stop
Don’t stop

All alone in time
I don’t know what to do
There is no going back
There is no way back through
All alone in this time
I don’t remember you
It sinks into the brain
They tell me what to do / They made it all come true

Get out of my
Get out of my
Get out of my
Get out of my head
GET OUT!

Inside my head
I know I’m better off dead
Stuck in this hole
No way back
No control
Track Name: Pesticide Sun
I buried my skin, in the Pesticide Sun.
Track Name: Collapsible Bodies
Staring at the TV
In front of me
Dead static air
Confined to the chair
Video burns
My tired eye yearns
No way to break free
Change the channel for me

Losing faith in all I see
Emptiness is killing me
Deconstruction of the soul
Filling up the empty hole
Burning fuel inside the brain
Everlasting is the stain

Collapsing
Collapsing
Collapsible body collapsing
Collapsing
Collapsing
Collapsible bodies collapsing

Going down gotta get away
I’m going down
Going down
Going, going
Going down gotta get away
You’re going down
Going down
Going, going

Inside my head
These words that I can’t say
And I know that it’s cause of you
All the things I feel everything I can do

Nowhere to go now
There is nowhere to hide
Nowhere to go now
There is nothing inside

Help me...
Track Name: One Last Chance
One more taste
One more try
One more waste
One more lie

One more night
One more dream
One more laugh
One more scream

One more life
Thrown away
One more chance
To decay

Empty shadows, cloud the light
Plastic faces molded on so tight
Frozen water closing in
Time has come to start it all again

One more chance
To make it right
One more / last chance
To make it through the night

Everything that I could do
I would do it cause of you
Everything that I would do
And I don’t mean a thing to you

Everything that I could do
I would do it cause of you
Everything that I would do
But I don’t mean a thing to you

Everything that I would do
I would do it cause of you
Everything that I could do
And I don’t mean a thing to you

Everything that I could do
I would do it all for you
Everything that I could do
But I don’t mean a thing to you

But that’s alright
But that’s okay
But that’s alright
I’m dead anyway
Track Name: Meteorite
Meteorite...
Track Name: Chain Reaction
Kill your fear
Kill your mind
Kill yourself
Save mankind

Wasting time
Wasting hate
Wasted love
Wasted fate
Wasting light
Wasting sin
Wasted breath
Wasted skin

I’m wasting away
I’m wasting
I’m wasting
I’m wasting away

Another part of me
Another part of me I throw away
Another part of me
Another part of me left to decay
Left to decay

I look into your eyes
And nothing is all I see inside
I look into your eyes
And emptiness is all I can find
I look into your eyes
And see the rage and see all the lies
I look into your eyes
And in the end it’s all a disguise

Wasting flesh
Wasting pain
Wasted fuel
Wasted stain
Wasting hope
Wasting fear
Wasted hands
Wasted tears

I’m wasting away
I’m wasting
I’m wasting
I’m wasting away

No matter what I do
It will never be enough
Never be enough
Never be enough for you

Chain reaction
Chain reaction
Chain reaction, action, action
Track Name: Thought Corruption
It washes me away...
