1. Inhumane (4:57)
Incarcerated, for a crime, you cannot understand
Isolated, no contact with your fellow man

Lethal injection, the antidote to existence
Just killing in another form, murder by the system

Guilty or innocent? Or just someone to blame?
Another victim, whose life is now fair game

Sentenced to die
Let the punishment fit the crime
Where do you draw the line?
Life ends in pain
Inhumane

Violent punishment for violent actions
The cycle never stops, a chain reaction
We can only bring this to an end
When we learn the difference between justice and revenge


Electrocuted, then proven innocent
Executed, another life brought to an end

Lethal injection, the antidote to existence
Just killing in another form, murder by the system

Guilty or innocent? Or just someone to blame?

Another victim, whose life is now fair game

Condemned to die
Let the punishment fit the crime
Where do you draw the line?
Life ends in pain
Inhumane
2. A Waste of Life (6:00)
You truly make me sick
With every word you speak
And with the way you live
To prey upon the weak

With every lie you tell
More fall under your spell

I see right through you
And wonder how others do not
They bow down to you
While you leave them to rot

A knife in the back
A promise, unfulfilled
The threat behind the smile
Waiting for blood to spill
Predict disaster
Because you are its cause
Exploit the system
And then you mock its flaws

A waste of life
And now I live - to watch you die
A waste of life
How I despise - all your lies
A waste of life
A waste of life
How I despise - all your lies

I'd like to watch you choke
Ram all those lies right back down your throat
The time has come for you to face the truth
You are a piece of shit - fuck you

Like a distorted mirror
Reflect the worst parts of society
Say what they want to hear
But you don't speak for me

With each deadly word
Reality and fantasy are blurred

I see right through you
Then wonder why others do not
They bow down to you
While you leave them to rot

A knife in the back
A promise, unfulfilled
The threat behind the smile
Waiting for blood to spill
Predict disaster

Because you are its cause
Exploit the system
And then you mock its flaws

A waste of life
How I despise - all your lies
A waste of life
And now I live - to watch you die
A waste of life
A waste of life
How I despise - all your lies
3. Fate (5:05)
From years of darkness, a mind comes awake
Somehow altered to a heightened state
Things he could never know are now perceived
But can these visions truly be believed?

Death, life and fate
All within his gaze
Visions beyond this plane
Reveal a future warped by
Hate, fear and lies
So cleverly disguised
Seen clear before his eyes
This man must die

Is this a nightmare?
Or is it reality?
Is this the future?
Or is it destiny?

A life to take, a choice to make, before it's too late
One fatal shot is all that stands between mankind and fate

Fate

Lead – Matt
Lead – Dan

Able to see and alter destiny
Kill to avoid untold brutality
Seeing the dark, but searching for the light
Gifted and cursed with this second sight

Death, life and fate
All within his gaze
Visions beyond this plane
Reveal a future warped by
Hate, fear and lies
So cleverly disguised
Seen clear before his eyes
This man must die

Is this a nightmare?
Or is it reality
Is this the future?
Or is it destiny?

A life to take, a choice to make, before it's too late
One fatal shot is all that stands between mankind and fate
4. Lethal Legacy (4:54)
One is alive, one is not
Lurking inside the flesh, it slowly rots
Before your birth, there was another life
Defective twin that you now hold inside

Malignant occupant
Unseen inhabitant

Like a cancer, it gnaws away
A pain unanswered, gets worse each day
Deep inside of you, your stomach churns
The one you never knew, has now returned

Deadly, legacy
Spreading, misery
Dying, in agony
Begging - please get it out of me

Solo – Matt
Solo – Dan

So many years, this secret dwelled inside
A second self, destined for fratricide
Unformed, invisible, your duplicate
Unborn assassin, seals your gruesome fate

Parasitic sycophant
Un-living opposite

Like a cancer, it gnaws away
A pain unanswered, gets worse each day
Deep inside of you, your stomach churns
The one you never knew, has now returned

Lethal, legacy
Spreading, misery
Dying, in agony
Begging - please get it out of me
5. Fatal Illusions (5:23)
Living, in constant fear, about to snap
Believing all you see and hear, caught in their trap
Hatred, drips from your every word
Dictated and brainwashed to believe in the absurd

Confused - in heart and mind
Paranoia - makes you blind
Violence - the only answer that you want to find

So certain, in your convictions
You can't tell, fact from fiction

Existing, in confusion
Led astray by fatal illusions
Lives brought to their conclusions
Betrayed by fatal illusions
Fatal illusions
Fatal illusions

Blinded by ideology
Out of touch with reality
Off the edge of insanity
A pawn in their conspiracy

Solo – Dan

Fanatic, for years you fantasized
Ecstatic now you finally take a life
Bodies, lie bleeding, ignore the screams of pain
One bullet left, to put through your own brain

Confused – you see signs everywhere
Paranoia – fear things that aren't there
Violence – committed with an empty stare

So certain, in your convictions
You can't tell, fact from fiction

Existing, in confusion
Led astray by fatal illusion
Life brought to a conclusion
Betrayed by fatal illusions
Fatal illusions
Fatal illusions
6. Crusade of Brutality (5:36)
Burning piles of bodies, consumed by flames of hate
Tormented, then put to the torch, death at the stake
Brutal ways of conversion, so many had to endure
Sadistic religious freaks, who thought themselves so pure

Imprisoned, without conviction
Tortured, into confession
Inflicting, blind oppression
Trial, by inquisition

Persecution, insanity
In the name of Christianity

Scream on the rack, burn at the stake
Confess to blasphemy
Bleed for the cross, a heretic's fate
For non-conformity
Thousands that died, never knew why
Condemned to infamy
Mutilated, skinned alive
Crusade of brutality

Solo – James
Solo – Matt

Brought before a secret court, your trial now begins
Tortured without mercy 'til you confess your sins
Convicted of unholy deeds, fed to hungry flames
Innocent or guilty, slaughtered just the same

Imprisoned without conviction
Tortured into confession
Inflicting blind oppression
Trial by inquisition

Persecution, insanity
In the name of Christianity

Scream on the rack, burn at the stake
Confess to blasphemy
Bleed for the cross, a heretic's fate
For non-conformity
Thousands that died, never knew why
Condemned to infamy
Mutilated, skinned alive
Crusade of brutality
7. At Death's Door (4:54)
Catatonic
Brain-dead, un-living state
Though you're still breathing
It's clearly far too late
Unresponsive
No thoughts inside your head
A living corpse, you're trapped
Within a shell already dead

Legally alive
Slowly pay the price
Machines prolong your strife
Live on just to - die

No decency, they knowingly prolong, your morbid fate
No dignity, you're forced to live on, in a vegetative state

Brought to death's door
To suffer even more
How long have you been waiting for?
Forced to survive
What can barely be called life?
Who has the right to decide?
If you have the right to die?

Solo – James
Solo – Matt
Solo – James
Solo – Matt

Comatose
Drawing out this living death
The machine that makes you exist
Drags out the days 'til your last breath
Death is so close
Only one breath away
If we could just set you free
Instead of watching you decay

Legally alive
Slowly pay the price
Machines prolong your strife
Live on just to - die

No decency, they knowingly prolong, your morbid fate
No dignity, you're forced to live on, in a vegetative state

Brought to death's door
To suffer even more
How long have you been waiting for?
Forced to survive
What can barely be called life?
“Freedom” is a lie
If you don't have the right to die
8. Twisted Prayers (5:46)
Fatal conception, born just to die
And in the process claim the mother's life
Life-saving treatment that will be denied
Hide behind your faith to justify

Praying, to end this pain
Withholding medicine, faith gone insane

Christians, standing idly by, as death closes in
The procedure that could save your life, they call a sin

Condemned by religion, your life will cease
Their conscience clear, that you'll rest in peace

Twisted, the words they use to kill are prayers
Wasted, pleas to a god that isn't there
Twisted Prayers
Twisted Prayers

Lead - Dan

You search for answers, but there's none to find
Only ignorance within your mind
A human life has been forever lost
How many others will soon pay the cost?

Praying, to end this pain
Withholding medicine, faith gone insane

Christians, standing idly by, as death closes in
The procedure that could save your life, they call a sin

Condemned by religion, your life will cease
Their conscience clear, that you'll rest in peace
