Submitted by level 퀴트린       Last modified by level Eagles
1. Nothing To No One (4:10)
Force it to begin
Spark the flame
To firebursting sin
Doctrine denied
Over and over again

Keeping death of all things private
Expose this failed creation
What is done is dead
What is done is dead

To be content, an abomination
Are you satisfied
Are you done with this

The ultimate rebellion
The sacrifice is endless
The ultimate rebellion
Be nothing to no one

What's in a true life?
Behind the crumbling walls
Of dream and infant illusion
Action without movement
Desire without heart
It is over and done
It is over and done
To crave for touchless objects
And fathom without eyes
The fall of all things personal
That no one sees

The ultimate rebellion
The sacrifice is endless
The ultimate rebellion
Leave nothing to no one

Awaken to the screams
Of unresolved
Demands and accusations
Words are free

These are the outer symptoms
Of inner detonation
Will force us to inaction
Rid us of resolve
Take the burden off me
Lead me to my grave

The ultimate rebellion
The sacrifice is endless
The ultimate rebellion
Leave nothing to no one
2. The Lesser Faith (4:37)
Dreamt up a new word today
In my ignorance I gave it meaning
Who was I to know
To say it is to know it
To hear it is to believe, is to believe

I dreamt the world would end
I was not wrong
To doubt, to discredit
The words I've heard before
From inside a shell pretending

It's all you've shown your faith
And what you've always known
So lay your trust in the unthinkable
It's time to justify your lesser faith

It's all your faith has shown
And all you'll ever know
Why do you matter, you're insignificant
How can you justify your lesser faith?

To know it is to fear it
To fear it is to say no, is to say no
To the blazing highs and lows
I know I'll fail
To break, to cast it down
You take your lead
From a staff that must be broken in two

It's all your faith has shown
And all you'll ever know
Why do you matter, you're insignificant
How can you justify your lesser faith?
3. Terminus (Where Death Is Most Alive) (4:24)
This is a ghost town
Alive with the echoes of failures fled
Lit up by shining faces,
That parade these streets
What used to be
Of humility is gone
You walk the mounds
Of skull and bones
Where living is denied
I see more movement in decomposition
Than in those hollow eyes

It is the only place I know
Where death is most alive
It is when truth is turned to lie
That death is most alive

Set flame to the ensnarers
And pierce that ornate shield
Branded by what claims you
You wear the mark of death
Tear from loss and agony
A character defined
Stripped of all but tragedy
What life is left to find
Go now, until there's nothing left
Go now, the dying has begun

It is the only place I know
Where death is most alive
It is when truth is turned to lie
That death is most alive

So I flee from all that is me
To hide behind this pale dead face
Whatever happened to desire, want and need
Whatever happened to integrity
Imagination is a curse in all of this
Whatever happened to the ones left behind

This is a ghost town
Bodies dragged through endless streets
Go now, to never return
I've seen more pitiful humiliation
Than you could never hide

It is the only place I know
Where death is most alive
It is when truth is turned to lie
That death is most alive
4. Blind At Heart (4:21)
I tell you here
Of all that crimes and hours broken
What never came, will never be the same
I tell you this, I tell you what

The mind that has been flooded
All the exits sealed
A poison set to enter
The unforgiving me

Probes and infiltrators
Infiltrate me

It's in these hours we forget ourselves (Ourselves)
Within a fire that consumes itself (Itself)...Go

No need for your defenses
My angerwall will hold
Take your steady pride
In monotony and beat

Invaders and corruptors
Invade me

It's in these hours we forget ourselves (Ourselves)
And never again
Within a fire that consumes itself (Itself)

A super nova of flame on fire
This broken spirit, blind at heart

Bite down hard on frustration
The siege that can't be broken
This hollow flame of fear
I tell you this, I tell you what

So close without connection
Locked inside the sphere
I take the blame upon me
And scream at what I see

I'm blind at heart
So blind at heart

It's in these hour we forget ourselves (Ourselves)
And never again
Within a fire that consumes itself (Itself)
5. Icipher (4:39)
Like lust has yet to fail me
No power to subside
My instincts never broken
This downfall so close at hand

The thing that scares me most
Is the fear I see in others
And the thing that really
Frightens me to the core
Is when I see that fear in you

Like shields against the action
No enemy to subdue
We barricade forever
The which hinds inside of us all

The thing that scares me the most
Is the fear I see in others
The thing that really
Frightens me to the core
Is when I see that fear in you

To break the rules and patterns
Are you're scared enough
Before the end is here
Are you scared enough

Are you scared enough
Are you scared enough

The thing that scares me the most
Is the fear I see in others
That look that sends shivers
Down my spine
Will haunt me to the end
Of living days and nights
You're the thing that matters to me most
And I sense this fear in you
6. Inside The Particle Storm (5:29)
Inside the particle storm
Where clouds of napalm shimmer
With the promise of one final dawn

Inside the particle bliss
Where ages collide into nothingness
Obliteration's one final kiss

A claw in the garden of eden
Clogging the bloodstream of birth
Tearing a hole in the fabric of life
The horizon enriched with scars

Inside the particle blaze
A chamber of dissolution
Proclaiming the end of days

We leave now
Nothing will follow, nothing at all
The cleansing flames of entropy
To devour us all

Our lungs are filled with sarin
Our children drowning like dogs
Handcuffed to the weight of cold dark matter
Without purpose, meaning, or name

Inside the particle storm
The poison gene of humanity
Nullified

This is the moment
When black ships anchor to the sky
The heavy hands of chaos
Descend in merciless demise
7. Empty Me (4:59)
What night never abandoned
In shallow darkness dwell
The evidence in pools of black
Light cannot penetrate, light cannot penetrate

Have you come for my forgiveness
There's nothing left to give
No response to your repentance
This empty me

Lifted from the living days
To be bent right out of shape
Let blades and satisfiers
Cut and lick these wounds
In reversal of repentance
This bastard son of lies
To bring meaning to it all, meaning to it all

Have you come for my forgiveness
There's nothing left to give
No response to your repentance
This empty me

Take now from this body
A coward's heart
And a soul beyond repair
Empty me

Between insecurity and reason
Self deprecation as a means to the end
Out of reach but never closer
A cure that searches for the cause
Cause for chaos

Have you come for my forgiveness
There's nothing left to give
No response to your repentance
This empty me

Drawn from memories the fragments linger
On ages of thought and seconds of sleep
What is it here that tempts the night
To stab the day and kill the light
8. Misery´s Crown (4:14)
All has now been broken
On streets I dare not walk
Freedom is an illusion
I build my fences high
If there was something out there
I've learned not to expect
There's a hundred million reasons
Not to care

Don't bring it
Don't bring it
Don't bring your misery down on me

Don't bring it
Don't bring it
Don't bring your misery down on me
Wear misery's crown

As always in these matters
You broke the deal of deals
And wasted what was given
To revel in your mess
I gave up all for nothing
I tried my best and failed
There's a thousand million reasons
Never to share again

This is how it all begins
This is how it all begins

Don't bring it
Don't bring it
Don't bring your misery down on me

Don't bring it
Don't bring it
Don't bring your misery down on me
Wear misery's crown

This is how it all begins

Come now
Come now
Come now

Don't bring it
Don't bring it
Don't bring your misery down on me

Don't bring it
Don't bring it
Don't bring your misery down on me
Wear misery's crown
9. Focus Shift (3:36)
I think I just forgot
To pick up the shells
From my recent discharge
And you took the blame
Explanations falter
To ears fallen deaf
Wherever I go I get lost

A reference to something
That both of us knew
Nothing that favors the few
In the darkness electric we see
That silence has spoken tonight

I think I have lost my language
Whatever I've said I deny
I think I have lost my way
Whatever was missing is gone
I let my focus shift

Your face is a map
I fail to discover
Drowned the sounds
Lost in the order
It's the look that stayed my words
The unblinking knowledge
Interlocked and holding
No stalemate to break
Take hold of the flame that unites
In the silence that speaks to me now

I think I have lost my language
Whatever I've said I deny
I think I have lost my way
Whatever was missing is gone
I let my focus shift

I struggle to find the words
That negate my meaning
I fail to comprehend
What message is given

I decline the steady hand
That leads to rejection
Tempted by the closure
With no sense of pride
Drown the fury and swallow the fire
Drown the fury, swallow the fire

I think I have lost my language
Whatever I've said I deny
I think I have lost my way
Whatever was missing is gone
I let my focus shift
10. The Mundane And The Magic (5:17)
Seen through these dreamless eyes
Blind buildings stark to the sky
Silhouettes as dividing walls
Guarding the eternal secret
Where is the flame to haunt you
Who do you answer to
My lies are always wishes
Lies that make me
See beyond the rationale
Accept the fate that nothing is meant to be
Be the least connected
Stay true to the last original

Apply layers to reality
Things only you can see
Add a beat to normality
To tap the core of insanity

I let my dreams cross over
To days of endless gray
If I could merge the mundane and the magic
We'd forged a new unknown
I let my dreams cross over
To nothingness and back again
If I could merge the mundane and the magic
Where is the dark I came to find

In latter days as time will find you
Memories will never let you get closer
The silent sighs in useless company
Wish for darkness and death again
In the face of ignorance and fear
I cast it right back
Some things were never there to begin with
Objectivity is truth denied

Apply layers to reality
Things only you can see
Add a beat to normality
To tap the core of insanity

I let my dreams cross over
To days of endless gray
If I could merge the mundane and the magic
We'd forged a new unknown
I let my dreams cross over
To nothingness and back again
If I could merge the mundane and the magic
Where is the dark I came to find
