Submitted by level Up The Irons       Last modified by level Up The Irons
1. The End of Everything (1:20)
(Instrumental)
2. Rain (4:11)
Everytime i'm left alone
My misery begins to drown me
Tied by a rope of anxiety
Thrown overboard

As i'm pulled under the tides of this fast paced world (of this fast paced world)
I refuse to see
Time will always be (be) the thing that kills me truly (truly)
Open these eyes waking (waking) from a dream Fading (Fading)

My lungs filled up with letdown
Disappointment in self and everyone
Expectation died in failure
abandonment my unsavior

As i'm pulled under the tides of this fast paced world (of this fast paced world)
I refuse to see
Time will always be (be) the thing that kills me truly (truly)
Open these eyes waking (waking) from a dream fading (fading)

Absolution at the sight of your demise
I know what I must do
Choke
Die choking on your every word
Swallow every blasphemy

Absolution at the sight of your demise
I know what I must do
Swallow every blasphemy
Eat out your heart and make it bleed

Tie the noose around my neck
Make (make) this (this) life (life) end (end)!
3. Pull Harder on the Strings of Your Martyr (4:51)
This face, and the lips, tremble, as it rips
Your breath quickening as heat rushes on

(Chorus)
Pull, Harder, Strings, Martyr
Stop you crying that's a lie
Flush gasping white reddening
You smile you destroy it
It's time that we end this
It's a curse that makes this world so hopeless
Allowing our king to spread his genocidal wings

Clawing the skin each kill your weakness
Annihilation your masturbation
Tyrant, I'll burn you down

(Chorus)
Pull, Harder, Strings, Martyr
Stop you crying that's a lie
Flies gasping white red eye
you smile you destroy it
It's time that we end this
It's a curse that makes this world so hopeless
Allowing our king to spread his genocidal wings
It's a curse that makes this world so hopeless
Allowing our king to spread his genocidal wings

My hands grip your throat I need your end
Burned, Staked, ripped apart - I avenge
For every life you have taken
I am here to repay
You ask me "oh god why?"
'cause i'm god fucking why
For every life you've taken
I am here to repay

(Chorus)
Pull, Harder, Strings, Martyr
Stop you crying that's a lie
Flies gasping white red eye
you smile you destroy it
It's time that we end this
It's a curse that make this world so hopeless
Allowing our king to spread his genocidal wings
It's a curse that make this world so hopeless
Allowing our king to spread his genocidal wings
4. Drowned and Torn Asunder (4:17)
Forcefeed them your ways
Dictate up a blinded swarm
Society's afraid

Declaration of rebellion
We will not stand defeat

Deconstructing their hold
Our vengeance will be Tenfold

Deconstructing their hold
Our vengeance will be Tenfold

Our enemies will be drowned
The opposing torn asunder

Take all your lives back
Arson all they create
The time is now to lead the battle

Declaration of rebellion
We will not stand defeat

Deconstructing their hold
Our vengeance will be Tenfold

Deconstructing their hold
Our vengeance will be Tenfold

Our enemies will be drowned
The opposing torn asunder

Deconstructing their hold
Our vengeance will be Tenfold

Deconstructing their hold
Our vengeance will be Tenfold

Our enemies will be drowned
The opposing torn asunder

Our enemies will be drowned
The opposing torn asunder
5. Ascendancy (4:25)
All this life shrouded in a veil
Of deception in association
But now I will witness thee
With unblinding open eyes

Judas I bury you in your own blood
You only held me down from what I was supposed to be
Ascend above the ashes of the worlds I once knew

All this life shrouded in a veil
Of deception in association
But now I will witness thee
With unblinding open eyes

Judas I bury you in your own blood
You only held me down from what I was suppose to be
Ascend above the ashes of the worlds I once knew
Ascendancy is the only thing this will prove

Go!
I spread the fuel with fire
Desire
To incinerate all
Behold I rise
Phoenix, phoenix

Ascend above the ashes
Ascend above it all
Ascend above the ashes
Ascend above it all

Judas I bury you in your own blood
You only held me down from what I was supposed to be, was supposed to be
Ascend above the ashes of the worlds I once knew
Ascendancy is the only thing this will prove
Ascend above the ashes of the worlds I once knew
Ascendancy is the only thing this will prove
6. A Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation (5:55)
You starve your children on neglect
Then feed their bellies with fear (bellies with fear)
Concussion bat to the brain
Witness to a battered mother (battered mother)

Your abuse will end right here
No longer will your family fear (no longer will your family fear)
A Gunshot to the head of trepidation (head of trepidation)
My promise if you ever lay a finger

Just look at these scars you make
Your terror makes your kids break (make you kids break)
A broken home just as you were raised
With fist raised up to your children

Your abuse will end right here
No longer will your family fear (no longer will your family fear)
A Gunshot to the head of trepidation (head of trepidation)
My promise if you ever lay a finger

This battle is on all
You made beautiful
Now hateful
You wretched life wrecker
Abuser
Now suffer

(Open fire, build the pyre)
On the desire of the man
(Open fire, build the pyre)
With strife we'll strike down the hand
(Open fire, build the pyre)
If i cant make you see the damage you've made
(Open fire, build the pyre)
I'll make you wish you'd never been alive

Hey x26

(Open fire, build the pyre)
On the desire of the man
(Open fire, build the pyre)
With strife we'll strike down the hand
(Open fire, build the pyre)
On the desire of the man
(Open fire, build the pyre)
With strife we'll strike down the hand
(Open fire, build the pyre)
If i cant make you see the damage you've made
(Open fire, build the pyre)
I'll make you wish you'd never been alive
7. Like Light to the Flies (5:40)
Behold our beloved rebels in tragedy (in tragedy)
Self-denying avarice for bloodshed
Behold hypocrite

Those who run will be burned x4

Devoutly wished for blinded eyes
This tragedy's like light to flies
This seems to suit you better bleeding out the eyes (bleeding out the eyes)
hope's left in chain suspension,
Holding onto lies to make the truth

Behold our beloved rebels in tragedy (in tragedy)
Self-denying avarice for bloodshed
Behold hypocrite

Those who run will be burned x4

Devoutly wished for blinded eyes
This tragedy's like light to flies
This seems to suit you better bleeding out the eyes (bleeding out the eyes)
hope's left in chain suspension,
Holding onto lies to make the truth

Devoutly wished for blinded eyes
This tragedy's like light to flies
This seems to suit you better bleeding out the eyes (bleeding out the eyes)
hope'sleft in chain suspension,
Holding onto lies to make the truth
This seems to suit you better bleeding out the eyes (bleeding out the eyes)
hope's left in chain suspension,
Holding onto lies to make the truth
8. Dying in Your Arms (2:53)
I'm wearing thin, wearing out, becoming weak
Holding hands with this rope
She's my self-destructive,
bleeding disease
The things that makes it hard to breathe
But if I shoved you far away
This addict just starved again, asphyxiated.

(Chorus)
And now I see it's you
That's tearing me (ensnaring me)
This is me dying in your arms,
I cut you out, now set me free

Lynched high above what used to be
In her gallows built for me
So I escaped cut this noose around my
neck, Let god be free to see the things you blinded me.
And I shoved you far away.
Now I live the life I dreamed of.
You're dead to me.

(Chorus)
And now I see it's you
That's tearing me (ensnaring me)
This is me dying in your arms,
I cut you out, now set me free

And now I see it's you
That's tearing me (ensnaring me)
This is me dying in your arms,
I cut you out, now set me free

You poisoned my life
So I take this knife
And I cut you out
Cut you out

And now I see it's you
That's tearing me (ensnaring me)
This is me dying in your arms,
I cut you out, now set me free

And now I see it's you
That's tearing me (ensnaring me)
This is me dying in your arms,
I cut you out, now set me free

set me free

set me free

set me free

set me free

set me free

set me free
9. The Deceived (5:11)
Disintegration constituents to decompose of the parts
A malformation utopia systematic unity can't be achieved

Be numb to all the things
That force you to frame
Be numb to all the things
That force you to frame

We are the decieved
Lost in the foreseen
We are the decieved
Lost in the foreseen

To wait for aformentioned dreams time will only tell
Tell that the promised have been failed

Disintegration constituents to decompose of the parts
A malformation utopia systematic unity can't be achieved

Be numb to all the things
That force you to frame
Be numb to all the things
That force you to frame

We are the decieved
Lost in the foreseen
We are the decieved
Lost in the foreseen

To wait for aformentioned dreams time will only tell
Tell that the promised have been failed

Behold your fellow man through centuries of control
Adhering to the decrees of a manufactured god
Behold your fellow man through centuries of control
Adhering to the decrees of a manufactured god

To wait for aformentioned dreams time will only tell
Tell that the promised have been failed
To wait for aformentioned dreams time will only tell
Tell that the promised have been failed
10. Suffocating Sight (3:47)
I am but a farce, a satire of stability
Insecurity is an uphill struggle, it's me versus the world
The shore still starves,
For another,

Novel of my shipwrecked being tied up dried and i'm still breathing
The sands of time, for me are running out,
my hands shake, in apprehension,
Of every action I'm guilty of playing the victim,
The shore still starves,
For another,

Novel of my shipwrecked being tied up dried and i'm still breathing
The sands of time, for me are running out.

Just like the embracive arms that made you
will surely destroy you.
Just like the embracive of of arms that made you
will surely destroy you.

It's time for your panic,
Then it kills and makes, you manic,

Making its way inside - relax, it's alright,
Making its way inside - relax, it's alright
Panic grips your frantic breathing
I can't breathe, I can't breathe,i cant breathe!

Just like the embracive arms that made you
will surely destroy you.
Just like the embracive of arms that made you
will surely destroy you.

Just like the embraceive arms that made you
They'll surely destroy you.
Just like the embraceive arms that made you
They'll surely destroy you.

Just like the embraceive arms that made you
They'll surely destroy you.
11. Departure (5:41)
I am but a farce, a satire of stability
Insecurity is an uphill struggle, it's me versus the world
The shore still starves,
For another,

Novel of my shipwrecked being tied up dried and i'm still breathing
The sands of time, for me are running out,
my hands shake, in apprehension,
Of every action I'm guilty of playing the victim,
The shore still starves,
For another,

Novel of my shipwrecked being tied up dried and i'm still breathing
The sands of time, for me are running out.

Just like the embracive arms that made you
will surely destroy you.
Just like the embracive of of arms that made you
will surely destroy you.

It's time for your panic,
Then it kills and makes, you manic,

Making its way inside - relax, it's alright,
Making its way inside - relax, it's alright
Panic grips your frantic breathing
I can't breathe, I can't breathe,i cant breathe!

Just like the embracive arms that made you
will surely destroy you.
Just like the embracive of arms that made you
will surely destroy you.

Just like the embraceive arms that made you
They'll surely destroy you.
Just like the embraceive arms that made you
They'll surely destroy you.

Just like the embraceive arms that made you
They'll surely destroy you.
12. Declaration (7:00)
Freedom is all I have to say in defense
Of what the world's becoming
A nation hell bent on choosing what's right
And how we all should live our lives

Fuck thier ways it is time to break free
Fuck their hate acceptance is what we need

Equality for every race, sex, sexuality
And every choice to live our lives
And to you bigot cretin ignoramus
Mind your own goddamn fucking business

Fuck thier ways it is time to break free
Fuck their hate acceptance is what we need

Holding onto what makes us whole
Never letting their poison take control
Freezing the air (that stands between all of us)
Closing the eyes (bear witness to me)
Feeling the fear (that stands between all of us)
Closing the eyes (bear witness to me)
I'll be right here
Falling away
Fighting on principle
I'll die 1000 times
Before I'll ever be them

Fighting on principle
I'll die 1000 times
Before I'll ever be them x2

Burn the scriptures
Bury the governing
Free yourself
Break the structures
Declare Freedom x4

Freedom is all I have to say in defense
Of what the world's becoming
A nation hell bent on choosing what's right
And how we all should live our lives

Fuck thier ways it is time to break free
Fuck their hate acceptance is what we need

Holding onto what makes us whole
Never letting their poison take control
Freezing the air (that stands between all of us)
Closing the eyes (bear witness to me)
Feeling the fear (that stands between all of us)
Closing the eyes (bear witness to me)
Freezing the air (that stands between all of us)
Closing the eyes (bear witness to me)
Feeling the fear (that stands between all of us)
Closing the eyes (bear witness to me)
