1. .execute. (1:48)
It appears that we have reached the Edge, that zenith where stimuli and comatose collide.
Forty years ago, THE MAN proclaimed the Age of the Gross to be upon us, and even though THE
MAN was destroying our heritage and insulting our intelligence,
that era has become very real.
We labor for pleasure and abhor the guilt of pressure.
My generation will go down as the architects of contemporary disgust.
Some have fought and died.
Others have allowed the strong to be butchered for a price they themselves don't care about
and will never understand.
I myself am beleaguered by the selfish face of a kind of man that is NOT MANKIND.
Distrust in information.
Fundamentalism of opinion.
Catastrophic boredom, and a fanatical devotion to that which DOES NOT MATTER.
Where is your glory now, people?
Where are your gods and politicians?
Where is your shame and salvation?
You Rage For No Reason Because You Have No Reason.

WHAT HAVE YOU EVER FOUGHT FOR?
WHAT HAVE YOU EVER BLED FOR?
THE FACE OF THE EARTH IS SCARRED WITH THE WALKING DEAD.
THE AGE OF THE GROSS IS A LIVING VIRUS.
THIS IS THE FUTURE YOU HAVE CREATED.
THIS IS THE WORLD YOU HAVE SET ABLAZE.
ALL YOUR LIES ARE COMING TRUE.
ALL FREEDOM IS LOST.
ALL HOPE IS GONE.
2. Gematria (The Killing Name) (6:01)
12/08/73 - that was all I got and now you got me

All I ever really wanted was to take the blame
I will go down in History and not down in Flames
Meningitis / I will survive this / Dry Sockets and a Schizophrenic Crisis
The Time of The Nine has begun
Get out of the way or you will suffer as one

This is so TYPICAL / APOCALYPTICAL
Hanging on abysmal release / Jesus
I don't need this / Don't wanna be this
Icon in the Making / My hands are fucking shaking

WHAT IF GOD DOESN'T CARE?
WHAT IF GOD DOESN'T CARE...

Remember / Surrender / The Time is Now
Continue / We're in you... and we will BURN YOUR CITIES DOWN

AMERICA IS A killing NAME
IT DOESN'T FEEL OR DISCRIMINATE
LIFE IS JUST A killing FIELD
IT'S ALL THAT'S LEFT - NOTHING'S REAL
THROW AWAY YOUR DISPOSABLE PAST
AND FALL APART LIKE A CIGARETTE ASH
WE ARE THE FATAL AND VITAL ONES OF THE WORLD
AND WE WILL BURN YOUR CITIES DOWN

WHAT IF GOD DOESN'T CARE?
WHAT IF GOD DOESN'T CARE?

AMERICA IS A killing NAME
IT DOESN'T FEEL OR DISCRIMINATE
LIFE IS JUST A killing FIELD
IT'S ALL THAT'S LEFT - NOTHING'S REAL
THROW AWAY YOUR DISPOSABLE PAST
AND FALL APART LIKE A CIGARETTE ASH
WE ARE THE FATAL AND VITAL ONES OF THE WORLD
AND WE WILL BURN YOUR CITIES DOWN

Down...

WE WILL BURN YOUR CITIES DOWN

Feed the Hungry - Feed them shit
Feed them BONES and POLITICS
You wanna revolutionize?
Be specific and believe your eyes
Start a war in another backyard
And we'll destroy your house of cards
Give me a minute and I'll change your mind
Give me a bullet and I'll change your life

Remember / Surrender / The Time is Now
Continue / We're in you...
And we will BURN YOUR CITIES DOWN

AMERICA IS A killing NAME
IT DOESN'T FEEL OR DISCRIMINATE
LIFE IS JUST A killing FIELD
IT'S ALL THAT'S LEFT - NOTHING'S REAL
THROW AWAY YOUR DISPOSABLE PAST
AND FALL APART LIKE A CIGARETTE ASH
WE ARE THE FATAL AND VITAL ONES OF THE WORLD
AND WE WILL BURN YOUR CITIES DOWN

WE WILL BURN YOUR CITIES DOWN

America... what if "God" doesn't care?
3. Sulfur (4:37)
My Guilt and My Shame always sell me short - always feel the same
And My Face and My Soul always wear me thin - always under control
But the longest hours you'll have in your life
Are the ones you sit through to know if you're right
So I'll wait, but I pray that I'm wrong
Because I think I know what's going on

So Let Me Get This Straight... the only will is my own
I do whatever I want and stay alone
All my decisions make it untouchable and tainted
I'm gonna suffer for the rest of my life
But I will always find a way to survive
I'm not a failure, but I know what it's like
I can take it or leave it... or die

STAY - You don't always know where you stand
'Til you know that you won't run away
There's something inside me that feels
Like Breathing in Sulfur...

My Life is undone - and I'm a sinner to most but a sage to some
And my Gods are Untrue - I'm probably wrong, but I'm better than you
And the longest hours I've had in my life
Were the ones I went through to know I was right
So I'm safe, but I'm a little outside
I'm gonna laugh when I'm buried alive

STAY - You don't always know where you stand
'Til you know that you won't run away
There's something inside me that feels
Like Breathing in Sulfur...

LIKE BREATHING IN SULFUR

STAY - You don't always know where you stand
'Til you know that you won't run away
There's something inside me that feels
Like Breathing in Sulfur...

LIKE BREATHING IN SULFUR
4. Psychosocial (4:43)
I did my time and I want out
So effusive - Fade - It doesn't cut
The soul is not so vibrant
The reckoning - The sickening
Packaging subversion
Pseudo sacrosanct perversion
Go drill your deserts - Go dig your graves
Then fill your mouth with all the money you will save
Sinking in - getting smaller again
I'm Done! It has begun - I'm not the only one!

[Chorus:]
And the reign will kill us all...
Throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see
The preservation of the martyr in me

Psychosocial!

There are cracks in the road we laid
But where the devil fell
The secrets have gone mad
This is nothing new, but when we killed it all
The hate was all we had
Who needs another mess?
We could start over
Just look me in the eyes and say I'm wrong
Now theres only emptiness
Venomous, Insipid
I think we're done - I'm not the only one!

[Chorus]

THE LIMIT'S OF THE DEAD!

Fake Anti-Fascist lie - (Psychosocial!)
I tried to tell you but - (Psychosocial!)
Your purple hearts are giving out - (Psychosocial!)
Can't stop a killing idea - (Psychosocial!)
If it's hunting season - (Psychosocial!)
Is this what you want? - (Psychosocial!)
I'm not the only one!

[Chorus x2]

The limits of the dead...
5. Dead Memories (4:28)
Sitting in the dark, I can't forget.
Even now, I realize the time I'll never get.
Another story of the Bitter Pills of Fate.
I can't go back again. I can't go back again...
But you asked me to love you and I did.
Traded my emotions for a contract to commit

And when I got away, I only got so far. The Other Me Is Dead.
I hear his voice inside my head...
We were never alive, and we won't be born again.
But I'll never survive with Dead Memories in my heart.
You told me to love you and I did. Tied my soul into a knot and got me to submit.

So when I got away, I only kept my scars. The Other Me Is Gone.
Now I don't know where I belong...
We were never alive, and we won't be born again.
But I'll never survive with Dead Memories in my heart.
Dead Visions in your Name.
Dead Fingers in my Veins.
Dead Memories in my Heart
6. Vendetta (5:15)
I know my uses / I have my pride / But my heart is still untamed
I learned my lessons / I've conquered Death / I go on and I'm unashamed
I'll paint your bones to match my eyes / They're the darkest I have ever seen
Until I'm lucid, I can't be told
I know my voices / They tell me to BELIEVE

Another fucking accident out of control / All the attitudes will never change
My Imitations are leading the way
I can't accept that I still don't find this strange

In light of my ability to feel denial
I walk away from everything with just a smile
The Agony of Coming Home has gone away
It's Everywhere / It's Everyone / It's Every Day

ARE YOU READY FOR THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE

I beg your pardon / I'm out of the way / A new conspiracy has taken my place
So over and over, I smell the decay
Believe what you want to - The Cycle Stays The Same

In light of my ability to undermine
I walk away from apathy - I'm feeling fine
The Agony of Cynicism beckons me
It's Everywhere / It's Everyone / It's Everything

ARE YOU READY FOR THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE

LET'S - PRETEND - WE'RE NOT AT THE END
PRETEND - THAT WE HAVE NOTHING LEFT

ARE YOU READY FOR THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE

LET'S - PRETEND - WE'RE NOT AT THE END
PRETEND - THAT WE HAVE NOTHING LEFT
7. Butcher's Hook (4:14)
Contrite - Commercial - Arrogance - Leprosy
Consume The Bitch - The Fucker - Mindless - Like A Child
For Pity's Sake - I've Had All That I Can Take
We Try - But In The End We'll See
There Are No More Codes
Only Who Is Shit / And Who's Still Free
I was gonna change the world with Honor and Aggression
No one listened - no one cared
All they saw was misdirection

GO AHEAD AND DISAGREE / I'm giving up again...

I DON'T WANT YOU ANYMORE
I DON'T NEED YOU ANYMORE
Fingerprint of God / Your new religions covet
This vessel wasn't built to last
But I will live forever/ you'll never have to say surrender
Because you're so part of it
My total honesty has no place for Tomorrow
Guilty pleasures give me pain
Tell my people I CAN'T FOLLOW

GO AHEAD AND DISAGREE / I'm giving up again...

You'll never CENSOR me / You'd better CHERISH me
My REASON has a voice / Freedom's gone but we'll always have a CHOICE
My PRESENT FUTURE TENSE / It doesn't make much SENSE
I'm coming after you / fuck YOU ALL I'M THE ONLY POINT OF VIEW

Violence and Dollar Signs / Another processed piece of shit
You hide your fault in DIAMONDS and give away the only
COST - you can't delay the inevitable
LOST - don't understand the incredible path
I'm losing ground - but I won't care when I go down

GO AHEAD AND DISAGREE / I'm giving up again...

I'M GIVING UP AGAIN
8. Gehenna (6:53)
Do you Believe? Do you Fade like a Dream?
Let me hear you BREATHE
Let me watch as you sleep
The Sparrow's Eyes... Promises shift into judgments
I cannot deny that you were designed for my punishments

The Blood and The Body - Control the cut so it's seamless
Show me your Heart - Show me the way to complete this
TETHERED / to a scene I / TREASURE / can you help me?
I / SEVER/ god it's perfect, it's / NEVER / really perfect
Now... I can finally be myself
Cuz I don't want to be myself

FREE MY SEVERED HEART, GIVE ME YOU - I WANT IT
(I don't want to be myself)

I cannot maintain a semblance of Normal anymore
I'd rather feel pain than try to fit in with you anymore
I'll throw it all away, like everybody else
I can finally be myself
Cuz I don't want to be myself

FREE MY SEVERED HEART, GIVE ME YOU - I WANT IT
(I don't want to be myself)
9. This Cold Black (4:40)
Mother Nature is a Coward (Mother Nature is a Whore)
No More Presence / No More Power (I pray for death, by the hour)
Cut Another Smile Into Me (Into ME is All You Are)
My Artifice won't Recognize Me (You won't find me)... Anymore

Post-Traumatic War Machines / The Pessimists still won't believe
Throw away my past mistakes / It's all I can to feel
Let my weapons be you CHILDREN / Let my armies be your DAMNED
Try to suffer on in silence / TRY TO STOP ME IF YOU CAN

PNEUMATIC DESTROYER - PATHETIC SEDUCER
DISTORTION SUFFICIENT
SOME DAY - ONE DAY - WE'LL LIVE OUR LIVES AGAIN

My Ghosts Have Found Their Way Back Home
I have every right to kill my own
I am something now that never could exist
My Anguish Conquers All / Pay The Price And Watch Me Fall
My Only Key Is Broken - My Broken Key Is Only... ME

PNEUMATIC DESTROYER - PATHETIC SEDUCER
DISTORTION SUFFICIENT
SOME DAY - ONE DAY - WE'LL LIVE OUR LIVES AGAIN

You utter waste of tired flesh - It doesn't matter if you can't progress
Even now they still create me - Give me your ignorance / IRRITATE ME
I am made of the same debris - You want it all but you didn't want me
Hypocrite with no real use - I'm alive... what's your excuse?

PNEUMATIC DESTROYER - PATHETIC SEDUCER
DISTORTION SUFFICIENT
SOME DAY - ONE DAY - WE'LL LIVE OUR LIVES AGAIN
PNEUMATIC DESTROYER - PATHETIC SEDUCER
DISTORTION SUFFICIENT
SOME DAY - ONE DAY - WE'LL LIVE OUR LIVES AGAIN

WE'LL LIVE OUR LIVES AGAIN
10. Wherein Lies Continue (5:36)
THOU SHALT NOT
Kill your Fathers - Destroy another Life
Question everything we clung to for years
Live Forever - Design a Better Death
Confuse a liar with a savior from fear
Create a Myth and Separate the Chosen Ones
Adolescent Independence / Dominion
I only wanna believe in fuckin' anything
But now my conscience is contradicting everything

THE ENDING'S THE SAME / THE WORLD WILL NOT CHANGE
THE ANSWER IS CLEAR...

Tell your Mothers they have no Sons or Daughters
Blame yourselves because your Children are Mine
We are Orphans, but we are not Forgotten
And we will find a way to save us this time
We can run, but we are tired of running
We're dropping seconds in a glass 'til we die
We only wanna believe in fuckin' everything
But we're alive and we're not accepting anything

THE ENDING'S THE SAME / THE WORLD WILL NOT CHANGE
THE ANSWER IS CLEAR... ANNIHILATION

I won't control or restrain things I do not understand
Now I realize I'm STRONGER BETTER
They gave to me now I give to you the means to burn the thoughts I had
Now I realize I'm STRONGER BETTER MORE

WE HAVE TO SAVE OURSELVES

I will never become another piece
Inside the Paralytic Construct I hate
Live Forever? Well, I would rather die
At least I'd know I wasn't theirs to create
This is yours, but you had better choose
Before they take away your right to decide
I guess I'll never believe in fuckin' anything
But my solace is I CAN HANDLE EVERYTHING

THE ENDING'S THE SAME / THE WORLD WILL NOT CHANGE
THE ANSWER IS CLEAR... OBLITERATION

I won't control or restrain things I do not understand
Now I realize I'm STRONGER BETTER
They gave to me now I give to you the means to burn the thoughts I had
Now I realize I'm STRONGER BETTER
I won't control or restrain things I do not understand
Now I realize I'm STRONGER BETTER
They gave to me now I give to you the means to burn the thoughts I had
Now I realize I'm STRONGER BETTER
MORE

WE HAVE TO SAVE OURSELVES
11. Snuff (4:36)
Bury all your secrets in my skin
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again...

So if you love me, let me go.
And run away before I know.
My heart is just too dark to care.
I can't destroy what isn't there.
Deliver me into my fate -
If I'm alone I cannot hate
I don't deserve to have you...
My smile was taken long ago
If I can change I hope I never know

I still press your letters to my lips
And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss
I couldn't face a life without your light
But all of that was ripped apart...
when you refused to fight

So save your breath, I will not hear.
I think I made it very clear.
You couldn't hate enough to love.
Is that supposed to be enough?
I only wish you weren't my friend.
Then I could hurt you in the end.
I never claimed to be a saint...
My own was banished long ago
It took the death of hope to let you go

So break yourself against my stones
And spit your pity in my soul
You never needed any help
You sold me out to save yourself
And I won't listen to your shame
You ran away - you're all the same
Angels lie to keep control...
My love was punished long ago
If you still care, don't ever let me know
If you still care, don't ever let me know...
12. All Hope Is Gone (4:45)
The state of the nation - violation!
A broken promise is as good as a lie.
The hell is humongous, the devil's among us
and we will burn because we won't unite!

What are we conceding for our freedom?
Why does anybody think we need 'em
I would rather fight,
than let another die.
We're the problem,
but we're also the solution.
ALL HOPE IS GONE!!!

If you want it come and take it from me.
If you think you can, you still don't know me.
Let me tell you, man, when I said it, I meant it
and I will always have the right to defend it.

Fifty seconds, a hundred murders.
The bill of rights is a bill of sale.
What will you do when the war is over?
What will you do when your system fails!?

We have made the present obsolete.
What do you want?
What do you need?
We'll find a way,
When all hope is gone!

We've seen the fall of the elite,
Bury your life, take your disease
We'll end the world,
When all hope is gone!

The wretched are the wounded,
The hungry starve to death,
In a place where no one goes,
The air itself is a final breath,
So discontinue, the anti-septic, care charade,
As a cry of justice comes,
A malignant fire fades.

I am the reason your future suffers,
I am the hatred you won't embrace
I am the worm of a pure gestation,
I am the remedy, spit in my face.
All your laws and rules are outdated,
All your subjects are killing the kings,
I can rattle off a million other reasons why,
But does it matter when the only thing we love will die?

We have made the present obsolete.
What do you want?
What do you need?
We'll find a way,
When all hope is gone!

We've seen the fall of the elite,
Bury your life, take your disease
We'll end the world,
When all hope is gone!
WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE!!!

WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE!!!

WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE!!!
