Track Name: Corrode
Corrode,
Encompass the earth
Drown out the light and shatter the sun
Devour,
Drain this husk of all life
Blacken the soil as the skies bleed dry
Engulf, consume, corrode
Track Name: Endless Wake
Breathing in, breathing out
Breathing in, breathing out
As my days begin to slowly fade,
The youth I once had slips away
My health and warmth deteriorate
No longer can I appreciate
My life
Let me end before I fall
End my life on my own terms
This very decision I have earned
Let the world remember me

And you may remember me as a coward
Or my death will be a topic of shame
And people may tell you I was twisted,
But all I really wanted was to die with dignity
Was to die with dignity

I breathe the air
My eyes close, yet I smile
Tears of memories sprinkle across my face
Goodbye, world

Breathing in, breathing out
Breathing in breathing out

I breathe the air
My eyes close, yet I smile
Tears of memories sprinkle across my face
Goodbye world
I breathe the air
My eyes close, yet I smile
Tears of memories sprinkle across my face
Goodbye world

I dream of an endless wake
For this world is but my own to take
As you watch me deteriorate
I dream of final sweet release
I breathe the air
And my eyes close
Watch me fall
Until I am
Nothing more
Than away
Track Name: The Cold
Crawling through the dirt again
Searching for winter’s end
This endless war cannot be won
This world is what I have become

Lifetime laid to ruin
Left out in the cold
Searing ice of contemplation
My skin, it breathes an endless lust
To feel the warmth of day again

As rain falls through darkened skies
I find myself here again
Where the bitter winds caress my broken soul
And these clouds cry a thousand tears
As they leave me here in the cold

Torn asunder by the maelstrom
In frigid gusts and shades of black,
Night will never end
So long as I remain

Hope has become a distant memory
Yet its luxury taunts me every day
And incandescence in the opacity
Leading me further from a saving grace

Crawling through the dirt again
Searching for winter’s end
This endless war cannot be won
This world is what I have become

Lifetime laid to ruin
Left out in the cold
Searing ice of contemplation
My skin, it breathes an endless lust
To feel the warmth of day again

Now my body in this stranglehold
Suffocated by thermal decay
Lies helplessly as the moon grows old
And still I yearn for death’s grip to release me
If even for one day
Track Name: Haunted Eyes
Another restless night, haunted by the echoes of her screams
My mind forever tainted with the harsh memories
And it was you my father, with your hands around her throat
A release to your anger, an assault unprovoked
And your hands have left me scarred

As I witnessed the blood drip to the floor
My innocence was robbed from me
I was not pure anymore
The memories have forever stained my fragile mind
Mother I cry for you

If I avenge all the things he’s done
Am I able to rest again
Must I slaughter my very own blood
To remove this darkness from within
I cannot sleep with this insomnia
Haunted by her cries
I cannot sleep with this insomnia
Justice to be served with a knife

If vengeance is a cure to my madness
Will I be filled with overwhelming pain

Father I swear there’s no mercy tonight
Your time has come to burn
For years of pain I was forced to endure
Your death is my release

The rain, it falls
Icy streams of desperation call
As it drowns out the sun
The shade of night corrodes my soul
The rain, it falls
Icy streams of desperation call
Now my eyes forever black,
I will embrace my fall

I am the cloud thundering
Preventing the sunlight from shining
I am devoid
I am unable to be cured
Watch me deteriorate

I still awake at night
Haunted by my father’s presence
His voice I hear in mine
Memories feast on my insides
Watch me deteriorate
Track Name: Blinding Light
The lands left mutilated
At the hands of society
The water, rich and sweet
Now stained by impurity
Beneath the sky is a thick layer of smoke
That masks the very earth
And we wonder why our world is dying

So, we must ask ourselves
What do we really need to survive?
How much more must our soil endure
Before we are all satisfied?
War has left its mark with radiation
Nuclear, infectious air
Power in wealth, blood for oil
To make the debts disappear

I dream of a world where the green of the trees remain
Untouched by the toxic fingers of the human race
We drain the life out of this earth in which we live
We are the disease, the parasites that make the oceans bleed

So, take a moment to reflect on what we are
Are we satisfied by what we've become
Or have we wandered afar?

Oh, I dream of a world where the green of the trees remain,
And where the media’s twisted views
Stop feeding us with false knowledge
(Interlude)
When will we see the day?
Will my dreams become reality?
Will we fall into decay
Until nothing remains?

I dream of a world where the green of the trees remain
Untouched by the toxic fingers of the human race
I fear, I fear
I fear it is too late
I fear our hope has wandered afar
Track Name: And The Clouds Cry
Have you ever felt so alone,
Unable to escape depressions lonely throes?
I’ve been there I know how you feel
And it feels like the light inside,
Everything you’ve worked for has suddenly died
Take my hand,

I know the shadows cloud around
With the air so thick, you feel like you will drown
But there is always a glimmer of hope, though it may not be seen, you must hold on just for me
Because I need you, I really need you
The thought of life without you isn’t worth living

I scream aloud at the clouds above
‘Give her a chance for me!’
No response, no answers
Just the rain that pours down on me

She is thin, and wearing out, neglected health, so full of fucking doubt
No one around her seems to care
Just another reason why life is so unfair
I’m trying to show you things can change
Happiness overthrows anxieties chains
But I love you and always will
We can get through these tough times still

I scream aloud at the clouds above
‘Give her a chance for me!’
No response, no answers
Just the rain that pours down on me
As she climbs onto the wooden chair,
And places the ropes upon her neck
One final step, a life wasted away
The clouds will cry for an eternity

Heaven or hell; whoever will answer
I want you to know that I will not let this go
I prayed for love, I prayed for trust
I prayed for the power to save her from the dust!

I scream aloud at the clouds above
‘Give her a chance for me!’
No response, no answers
Just the rain that pours down on me
I saw life in your haunted eyes
While the others remained so blind
And as these years grow colder
Your lifeless face grows older
Endless nights awake, searching for answers
Praying for hope, my desperation
But all that failed, as I saw you waste away
And corrode
