1. End of the Beginning (8:07)
Is this the end of the beginning?
Or the beginning of the end?
Losing control or are you winning?
Is your life real or just pretend?

Reanimation of the sequence
Rewinds the future to the past.
To find the source of the solution;
The system has to be repaired.

Release your mind.
Fast forward to the secrets of your soul.
Your life's on overload.
Is this your fate?

Will you decide what makes you an entity-
That's your identity
Well if you don't know
which way to go

You might be lost and confused
A second chance no time to lose

Reanimation of your cyber sonic soul.
Transforming time and space beyond control;
Rise up and resist to be the master of your fate.
Don't look back before today- tomorrow is too late.

You don't want to be a robot ghost
Occupied inside a human host
Analyze a new reality
Keep inside until they set you free.

Alright-okay till they set you free...
Alright-okay till they set you free...
2. God Is Dead? (8:54)
Lost in the darkness
I fade from the light
Faith of my father, my brother, my Maker and Savior
Help me make it through the night
Blood on my conscious
And murder in mind
Out of the gloom I rise up from my tomb into impending doom
Now my body is my shrine

The blood runs free
The rain turns red
Give me the wine
You keep the bread
The voices echo in my head
Is God alive or is God dead?
Is God dead?

Rivers of evil
Run through dying land
Swimming in sorrow, they kill, steal, and borrow. There is no tomorrow
For the sinners will be damned
Ashes to ashes
You cannot exhume a soul
Who do you trust when corruption and lust, creed of all, the unjust,
Leaves you empty and unwhole?

When will this nightmare be over? Tell me!
When can I empty my head?
Will somebody tell me the answer?
Is God really dead?
Is God really dead?

To safeguard my philosophy
Until my dying breath
I transfer from reality
Into a mental death
I empathize with enemy
Until the time is right
With God and Satan at my side
From darkness will come light

I watch the rain
And it turns red
Give me more wine
I don't need bread
These riddles that live in my head
I don't believe that God is dead
God is dead

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Wondering if we will meet again
On the other side
Do you believe a word
what the Good Book said?
Or is it just a holy fairytale
And God is dead?

God is Dead
God is Dead
God is Dead
God is Dead


But still the voices in my head
Are telling me that God is dead
The blood pours down
The rain turns red
I don't believe that God is dead

God is Dead
God is Dead
God is Dead
God is Dead
3. Loner (5:06)
He's just a loner.
He never says hello.
A friend to no one.
He's got no place to go.

He don't look happy.
He look through furtive eyes.
He aint got nothing.
No one to sympathize.

He hides himself away.
His secrets not revealed.
As life just passes by he keeps himself concealed.

A solitary man.
An enigmatic child.
A riddle never solved.
A prisoner exiled.

I wonder if the loner can assimilate.
A life less lived alone plays devil's advocate.

Has he ever tried to be happy?
Reached out from inside.
Someone on who he can depend.
it's getting to late to recover.
He won't stand a chance and into his own hell he'll descend.
Don't descend.

No understanding of things we already know.
He has to live his life and just learn how to let go.

Communication's an impossibility.
His own best friend but he's his own worst enemy.
The secrets of his past locked deep inside his head.
I wonder if he will be happy when he's dead.
4. Zeitgeist (4:28)
Astral engines in reverse
I'm falling through the universe again
Down among a dead mans vision
Faded dreams and nuclear fissions span

The strings of fear they are holding up the race
The puppets falling to the ground
The love I feel as I fly endlessly through space
Lost in time I wonder will my ship be found
On this sinking ship I travel

Faster than the speed of life
Not so super nova burns
The black holes turn and fade from sight
The strings of fear they hide within the human race
The answers buried underground
The love I feel as I fly endlessly through space
Lost in time I wonder will my ship be found

And very soon
The boundless moon
Will show us light
And as we crash
We'll pray and kiss
And say goodnight
5. Age of Reason (7:02)
Do you hear the thunder raging in the sky?
Premonition of a shattered world that's gonna die

In the age of reason, how do we survive?
The protocols of evil ravaging so many lives?

Mystifying silence talking peace on Earth
We should judge each other for ourselves
not what we're worth.

Sustainable extinction, a fractured human race.
A jaded revolution disappears without a trace

Always felt that there'd be trouble
Mass distraction hides the truth
Prozac days and sleepless hours
Seeds of change that don't bear fruit

These times are heavy and you're all alone
The battle's over by the war goes on

Politics, religion, love of money too.
It's what the world was built for but not for me and you
6. Live Forever (4:49)
Just before you die they say you'll see your life go flashing by
Cold dark endless night, to burn in hell or bathe in Heaven's light.

Well I don't want to live forever but I don't want to die.
I may be dreaming but whatever, I live inside a lie.

Days pass by too son, waiting for the rising of the moon
No escape from here, facing death but is your conscience clear

I may be dreaming or whatever, watching my life go by
And I don't want to love forever but I don't want to die

Well, I don't want to live forever but I don't want to die.
I may be dreaming but whatever, I live inside a lie

Don't want to live forever but I don't want to die.
Don't want to live forever but I don't want to die.
7. Damaged Soul (7:43)
Born in a graveyard adopted by sin
I cultivate evil that's living within
A preacher tried saving my black damaged soul
Possessed by a demon that had full control

The time it is coming when all life will end
With doomsday approaching to hell we'll descend
Religion won't save me, the damage is done
The future has ended before it's begun

Death's hand and the crazy, I can't stand the light of day
Watching all the victims on their knees as they pray.
God of the almighty never answers their call
Satan is just waiting for the righteous to fall to him.

I don't mind dying cause I'm already read.
Pray not for the living I'll live in your head
Dying is easy it's living that's hard
I'm losing the battle between Satan and God.
8. Dear Father (7:06)
A childhood innocence was drowned in your tears
The demons that you fought are feeding your fears
The poisoned secrets of your life stand revealed
The truth destroys you, it's no longer concealed

Dear Father forsaken, you know what you were doing
In silence your violence has left my life in ruin
Yeah, in ruin, yeah

You preyed upon my flesh them prayed for my soul
Belief betrayed by lust the faith that you stole
Indoctrination by a twisted desire,
The catechism of an evil messiah

Dear father forgive me, I know just what I'm doing
In silence this violence will leave your life in run
Yeah, in ruin, yeah

Preacher of theocracy hiding your hypocrisy
Under a false sanctity, holy phoney empathy
You have taken my life, now it's your turn to die

Can you sleep at night?
When you close your eyes do you think of all the pain from your lies?
Or do you deny you're responsible for the victims of the sins you devised?

What you gonna tell them when they ask you?
Well then this is your conscience pure in your hear?
There is no exemption when you seek redemption for all the lives that you've torn apart

Your molestations for the cross you defiled,
A man once holy now despised and revised
You took possession while confessing my sins
And now you have to face whatever death brings, yeah

Dear father forsaken, you know what you were doing
In silence your violence has left my life in ruin, yeah
In ruin yeah, yeah, yeah
In ruin yeah.
