1. Dark Stains on Ivory (4:10)
We starve the Earth, we empty it whole
We have non-regrettingly sold our soul
To a bigger TV and an empty front lawn
All well knowing our future is gone

The sun burns up, the sky turns black
You're suddenly aware there's no going back
Retreat to your homes, your TVs and lawns,
Wait for the eclipse, when retribution will hit

Dark stains on ivory
Stains that never goes away
This is our heredity
We were never meant to stay

Dark stains on ivory,
Stains that never goes away
A world in decay
This place, our home, forever in pain

With order restored, we shall try again,
This time with patience, love and respect
For the creatures around us, the planet, our home
As soon as we learn to step down from the throne

And we must keep on this track, not fall back
Or once again the sky will turn black
Mother Earth will swallow you whole,
You pathetic creature, who sold his soul

Dark stains on ivory
Stains that never goes away
This is our heredity
We were never meant to stay

Dark stains on ivory,
Stains that never goes away
A world in decay
This place, our home, forever in pain

We starve the earth, we empty it whole
All well knowing our future is gone
When do we learn to step down from the throne?
Wait for the eclipse (wait for the eclipse) when retribution will hit.
Dark stains on ivory
Stains that never goes away
This is our heredity
We were never meant to stay

Dark stains on ivory,
Stains that never goes away
A world in decay
This place, our home, forever in pain
2. Same Kind of Different (3:20)
So get this fucking straight
We are in this together, never alone
You are flesh I am bone
We were left for nothing and pushed aside
Beaten, picked on and left to die
Let the hate consume you
Together we rot
In this pit of salvation
This unprejudiced spot

I will mark you my path, so step in my tracks,
Now that I can truly see
We are the same kind of different, you and me
We share the suffering
We keep on wondering
Now that I can truly see
We are the same kind of different, you and me

Honed for perfection
Subject to aggression
Being used as tools for control
But we were meant for another role (for another role)
Let the hate consume you
Together we rot
In this unprejudiced spot

I will mark you my path, so step in my tracks,
Now that I can truly see
We are the same kind of different, you and me
We share the suffering
We keep on wondering
Now that I can truly see
We are the same kind of different, you and me

We've been left for nothing
Pushed aside
Beaten, picked on and left to die
Reach out for my hand, I will lead you the way
To a sanctuary place, within your hate and your pain...

I will mark you my path, so step in my tracks,
Now that I can truly see
We are the same kind of different, you and me
We share the suffering
We keep on wondering
Now that I can truly see,
We are the same kind of different, you and me

I'll mark you my path
So step in my tracks
Now that I can truly see
We're the same kind of different you and me
We share the suffering
We keep on wondering
Now that I can truly see
We're the same kind of different you and me
3. Destined to Fail (4:02)
For too long have we reached for the sky
We can never we be satisfied
Profit comes first, only quenching our thirst
We will never have enough

More needs more and an eye for an eye
What a pitiful world, built on a lie

We were destined to fail
Although we were given the tools to prevail
Our greed and our lust was unveiled
Destined to fail
Waiting for the day when I stop to care,
Forever trapped in this nightmare
Consumed by the need to always exceed
The limits of this world, the limits of our earth

More needs more and an eye for an eye
What a pitiful world, built on a lie

We were destined to fail
Although we were given the tools to prevail
Our greed and our lust was unveiled
Destined to fail

Waiting for the day when I stop to care,
Forever trapped in this nightmare
More needs more, an eye for an eye
A pitiful world, built on a lie

We were destined to fail
Although we were given the tools to prevail
Our greed and our lust was unveiled
Destined to fail
We were destined to fail
Although we were given the tools to prevail
Our greed and our lust was unveiled
Destined to fail
4. As We Blacken the Sky (3:40)
As the forest burns away, as the planet's turning grey,
As we keep on giving birth, to children condemned to a world in pain
Everyone dies in vein
We will forever stay the same

You've lived your life with your hands painted red
Take a fucking stand you pitiful prick
So many years of misconduct and neglect
As we blacken the sky
As we blacken the sky

As the smog in the air blackens the sky
As our lives goes on, based on a lie
As we count our final hours, only with ourselves to blame
I am left with shame
We will forever stay the same

You've lived your life with your hands painted red
Take a fucking stand you pitiful prick
So many years of misconduct and neglect
As we blacken the sky
As we blacken the sky

The forest burns away
The planet's turning grey
Radiation everywhere
Chemical waste

You've lived your life with your hands painted red
Take a fucking stand you pitiful prick
So many years of misconduct and neglect
As we blacken the sky
As we blacken the sky
5. Born to Stand Strong (4:34)
Now that your hollowness is clearer than ever,
Now that our eyes are finally open
Fed us with panic and despair, as long as you dared,
But now we're waking up to take affair

Now that your emptiness is clearer than ever
Your wheel of life is falling apart
Humanity, never meant to be
But now we're waking up to take affair

Your rules do not apply
I am liberty
And don't you even try
To force it down on me
Suppressed by the system for way too long
Why fit in, why fit in, why fit in when you were born to stand strong?

Now that your pretty lies are clearer than ever
Now we're finally ready to fight
Led us to darkness and death, take your final breath,
'Cause now we're waking up to take affair

Now that my warnings are finally heard
Now that your life has come to an end,
Humanity, wasn't meant to be
But now we're awake – we'll take affair!

Your rules do not apply,
I am liberty
And don't you even try
To force it down on me
Suppressed by the system for way too long
Why fit in, why fit in, why fit in when you were born to stand strong?

Inhale the fumes, your eyes are getting heavy now
First delusions, now paranoia
I'll cut off your eyelids for you to see
What I'm about to do to thee
Stay awake – this is far from over
Vengeance – and finally peace
Your rules do not apply,
I am liberty
And don't you even try
To force it down on me
Suppressed by the system for way too long
Why fit in, why fit in, why fit in when you were born to stand strong?
6. Can’t Be Beat (4:01)
Straight from the depths of my heart
This is where I belong
Our union stands strong

You can say what you want
This is the place I call home
The one thing you may never take from me

Forever forced to normality
Taking away what matters to me
I seek refuge in brutality
This union can't be beat

Can't be beat

And we are loyal down to the bone,
Never shall one be left alone,
You know where you belong
Our union stands strong

Forever forced to normality
Taking away what matters to me
I seek refuge in brutality
This union can't be beat

We are the final resistance
Driven by hate
And we base our existence
In this unity
Straight from the depths of my heart
This is where I belong
Loyal down to the bone
Never shall one be left alone
Our union stands strong
Stands strong

Forever forced to normality
Taking away what matters to me
I seek refuge in brutality
This union can't be beat

Can't be beat… this union can't be beat
7. When the Lights Begin to Fade (3:39)
Your pretty lies, your suit and your tie,
Your absence of empathy sickens me
Your double standards and counterfeit smile
Your existence – our demise

Who is really to blame?
The blindfolded sheep who keeps voting the same,
We drown in blindness!
Nothing will change, we stay the same

Are you sorry when the lights begin to fade?
Are you sorry for the promises you made?
Some day you'll be ordered to explain
Some day you'll be placed with the blame
You promised us change
Gave us nothing again (When the lights begin to fade)
Some day you'll understand our pain
Some day you'll lose the game
You promised us change
Gave us nothing again
When the lights begin to fade

Not all hope is lost, fight for the cause
Gather your strength and spit in their face
We will stand together as one
Fight for our beliefs, against the human disease
We lie awake at night
Waiting for change
But now I realize
It's all the same again

Are you sorry, when the lights begin to fade?
Are you sorry for the promises you made?
Some day you'll be ordered to explain
Some day you'll be placed with the blame
You promised us change
Gave us nothing again (When the lights begin to fade)
Some day you'll understand our pain
Some day you'll lose the game
You promised us change
Gave us nothing again
When the lights begin to fade

And as I break your jaw, and as I split your spine
I remember the past, what you have done to mine,
And as I hear you screams, I see it in your eyes
I recall everything that is done by your lies…

Some day you'll be ordered to explain
Some day you'll be placed with the blame
You promised us change
Gave us nothing again (when the lights begin to fade)
Some day you'll understand our pain
Some day you'll lose the game
You promised change
Gave nothing again
When the lights begin to fade [2x]
8. Consumer Consumed (3:56)
Your endless consumption
Comes with a price
You are left with no other options
Than living a synthetic life

We count dollars, we count dollars, when we should count seconds [2x]

We dwell in madness
Synthetically stimulated
Swallowed in blackness
By plastic manipulated
Consumer consumed

This insane obsession
Must come to an end
Mental regression
Forever condemned

We count dollars, when we should count seconds

We dwell in madness
Synthetically stimulated
Swallowed in blackness
By plastic manipulated
Consumer consumed

Corporate cannibalism
Victorious capitalism
The creation of needs

We dwell in madness
Synthetically stimulated
Swallowed in blackness
By plastic manipulated

We dwell in madness (synthetically stimulated)
Swallowed in blackness (by plastic manipulated)
Consumer consumed
9. Prisoners of War (3:55)
It's time to question their reasons,
Is it really worth dying for oil?
A war build on secrets
These plans were meant to recoil

One step closer to the edge
Afraid to speak your mind?
I hope you doubt your pledge
When using guns to hide behind

This war can't be right
Pray the sun will never rise

To all the prisoners of war
There are facts you can never ignore
Question the reasons, I implore
'Cause we're all prisoners of war

You realize your hands are tied
Awakening all your fears
Even though you win the war
You'll lose so much more
So ask yourself what this is for
Did you destroy or restore?
This war can't be right
Pray the sun will never rise
To all the prisoners of war
There are facts you can never ignore
Question the reasons, I implore
'Cause we're all prisoners of war

The nights were never silent
The air filled with screams of despair
My mind embroiled in violence
I can never be repaired [2x]

To all the prisoners of war
There are facts you can never ignore
Question the reasons, I implore
'Cause we're all prisoners of war
To all the prisoners of war
There are facts you can't ignore
Question the reasons, I implore
'Cause we're all prisoners of war
10. A Part of the Solution (3:53)
Now take a look deep into my eyes,
Hear my words – you're a slave to the lies
I see your addiction to society's rules
Hear my words – you're a blind fucking fool

Prepare for the upcoming riot
Hear my words – your life has expired
I see your addiction to society's rules
Hear my words – you're a blind fucking fool

There are lines to be crossed, you will pay the cost
We'll always fight for our cause

We'll be a part of the solution
Where others fail – we'll succeed
Reaching for absolution

Burn your self-pity,
Burn the self-absorbed masses of slaves
I just can't relax, while you walk in the tracks
Of former generations mistakes and mishaps

There are lines to be crossed, you will pay the cost
We'll always fight for our cause

We'll be a part of the solution
Where others fail – we'll succeed
Reaching for absolution

There are lines to be crossed
Get a grip on your shit
You'll pay the costs
Don't you fucking quit
We will fight for our cause
Ready to commit?
Not everything is lost
Rebuild it brick by brick
We'll be a part of the solution
Where others fail – we'll succeed
Reaching for absolution
Get ready for the revolution
Where others fail – we'll succeed
We're ready for retribution
11. The Nature of Mankind (5:06)
The chemical nightmare, arisen to haunt you
Poisonous fumes creeping under the door
I'm gonna put on my shades, watch you bathe in hate
Serve your own fucking head on a silver plate

This is the nature of mankind – so blind
So determined to be left behind
When we torch the sky, the planet dies
Oh, so blind – the nature of mankind

You've poisoned the air, laid the forest bare
Vengeance is next, I solemnly swear
I'm gonna put on my shades, watch you bathe in hate
Serve your own fucking head on a silver plate

This is the nature of mankind – so blind
So determined to be left behind
When we torch the sky, the planet dies
Oh, so blind – the nature of mankind

Your never ending appetite to capitalize
Is the root of the problem, the disease that must die

This is the nature of mankind
So determined to be left behind
When we torch the sky, the planet dies
Oh, so blind – the nature of mankind
This is the nature of mankind – so blind
So determined to be left behind
When we torch the sky, the planet dies
Oh, so blind – the nature of mankind
