Why are we whispering? I can barely hear but I'm holding on I know I'm not alone but I feel I'm buried six feet down So while you hide your face and sustain your polished mind I will not stand by and watch us go overboard by this strike I will not stand by. So spit it out, stand up and break down those walls. Let it rage. Don't spill out your empty veins Get up and scream with me Don't stop, don't fade away

Cover It Up 02:55
Feel the burning eyes, smell the stench in your breath I know your state of mind and I'm ready to embrace it Accusation, your mistake I'm innocent, you're the one to blame And on and on as it goes, I feel something break! Last straw, it gives away. Hear the sirens sing! Bruises and broken bones. Cover it up, with baggy clothes. No one shall ever know, what happens behind my front door. Everything will be alright. Cover it up, with hollow lies. No one shall ever know, what happens behind my front door. Tears bursting out of my eyes, that tension building up for years. Hinges of the vault door have been, corroded by the abused years Shelves filled with hidden rage, ready to explode on your face. The perfect ammunition for your early expiry date! Once again Coming late You pass out On your favorite chair I walk to you Feeling light headed I raise my fist I raise it again, raise it again One last time you raise your fist! One last time I'll fall by it!

Better World 03:06
Another morning another day and nothing's happening Through the blue eyes your words and thoughts are left in vain Try to see the light, but don't know where you are. You don't know where to go. Are you really lost if there is nowhere to go? Look in the eyes of the enemy Is it freedom you see or agony? The man in charge will lead us for better world, just don't be afraid to bleed. For the better world Marching for the endless life but already dead Tainted mind and scarred to the bone Mother I'm not coming home For the better world Look in the eyes of the enemy Is it freedom you see?

Who are these strangers all around? Just to be safe lock your doors at night, pull your curtains down Are they here because of all your wealth? Or is it something you have never felt and never will? When faith is not on your side When everything's destroyed except the walls with holes only four feet tall When you wait for help to come but there is no one, they decided to run And you tell me how you're the fragile one? And when the stormy clouds will fade The mind the broken heart will ache The void filled with echoes of hate Through the fire burn away How does it feel when no one listens when you pray? In the core feel the scream There is no more place for remedy And you already know Flag white as snow does not mean anything It won’t mean anything So when the faith is not on your side And when everything's destroyed around will you keep the curtains down and wait for this to overcome when everyone decided to run? Will you become the fragile one?

Rust 03:27
Out of time, out of place in my mind Moving around, eating away my very soul I curse it all, this enemy is my own fault I try to run, to keep it in it's own cage But steel will rust and one day it will be unleashed I pray to god my child won’t see me that day My mind starts to fade as the beast takes its place I have no control Once I return from depth and see the carnage I fall down and ask why When the judge ask what I know I shake my head because I have no recollection of action of the things that I’m accused of

Collapsed 03:25
We all have been there, in that place where everything turns into dust In that well known state of mind where you feel so alone and lost That blinding frustration knocks you down on your knees "This is not who I am, this is not me" Your heart is racing, you cannot breathe Your blood red eyes are too blind to see "I don't want to feel this way, I don't want to give up because this is not me" There's no innocence just pure fucking hate And in time will only change your face to the worse. "This time I'll hide my poisoned face, behind this part that's left in me I have a good heart, I won't let it go to waste And I scream from the bottom of my lungs that soon it will be over, soon it will be gone. I'll drag myself out from the unknown." But the damage is already done. “And I scream from the bottom of my lungs That soon it will be over, soon it will be gone. I will drag myself out from the unknown." But the damage is already done. “And I scream from the bottom of my heart. Soon it will be over, soon it will be gone. I will drag myself out from the unknown." But the damage is already done. How could we try to rise from this? We scream from the bottom of our lungs How could we try to rise from this? We have good hearts we won’t let them go to waste

Last Tide 04:38
Now here we go again, I’ve seen this million times before And still here you are leaving those scars When there’s one with fingers bleeding and one who’s losing sleep You will always find a way to collect the profit of their pain and misery Take the credit but don’t create Make them work so you won’t lose your face Count your sins, are you far enough to hide When the tide will rise With no sign of regret you force it all No time to rest when you’re craving your own success And when you have burned down all your bridges behind And you’re lying in the dirt, reaching your hand up high You might as well put a bullet between my eyes Right between my eyes Distorted, inverted, complex little mind Final call for salvation now lies in this tide

In this world I create my own path May my footsteps lead to a happy past Everyday a little deed Everyday to fight the moral decay It’s a decision I made when my soul was lit again By a shout of a fresh one with innocence in heart Now the flames light up the darkness inside So I won't kneel, I won’t bow For this ambience of hate and doubt So why do you choose these ignorant fools whom preach of their own twisted rules Take a moment to realize where we are. This burning will in my heart It has forced me through shit and tar. No matter what i faced, I always survived I’m not stopping when i’m this far, My life, it has just begun. In the end when the ashes are laid Not one tear shall be shed No mourning, no cryin for god Ones path is now done In this world I create my own path And it has just begun
