1. A Heart as Black as Coal (4:20)
There's something in those eyes
A thing you can't define
Two burnt-out blackened holes
All full of dying
A twisted little mind
Scheme and telling lies
Showing you the trails
You never thought you'd find

If you wake when you are sleeping
Pray the Lord your soul to keep

Through the gateways of the unknown
The black holes of the mind
Dark places, strange faces
When you cross the line
Lost your way
Lost yourself
And dream became what's real
A broken soul
A heart as black as coal

Afraid of what you'd find
If you talked to Mr. Hyde
Looked into your eyes
And saw a liar
In the mirror glass
A dead hand of the past
The double-face of you
That never dropped the mask

Come alive when you are dreaming
Pray the Lord your soul to keep

(x2) Through the gateways of the unknown
The black holes of the mind
Dark places, strange faces
When you cross the line
Lost your way
Lost yourself
And dream became what's real
A broken soul
A heart as black as coal
2. Before We Waste Away (4:45)
Welcome to the new age
Where ideals are warped and bent in shape
To fit the mold
The flavor of the day

All the numb and the pacified
It's a new world, the stage is yours tonight
Sign up at the dotted line
Oh, come and join the ride
Whoa, oh

Can't someone save us?
We just waste away
This is the new world
It's our darkest day
We keep on building fences
When freedom's up for sale
Can't someone save us?
We just waste away

Look at all the righteous
Standing tall upon their own empires
The two-faced ones
So good at faking smiles

Take a look at the games we play
Another headline, all the world's a stage
One more to fuel the hate
Oh, it's like we waste away

(x2) Can't someone save us?
We just waste away
This is the new world
It's our darkest day
We keep on building fences
When freedom's up for sale
Can't someone save us?
We just waste away

Just waste away
Whoa-oh
Just waste away

(Hey, hey, hey)
(Hey, hey, hey)
3. The Poisonous Seed (4:29)
Look at this devastation
Look at what we've become
We are nothing but marionettes
The sum of everything wrong

We are sons of the madness
Disciples of the unseen
Can't believe that it came to this
We're a monstrous breed

Why, it's almost unreal
We're numb to the world
Death is what feeds the machine
No, this cannot be
Line up the herd
Give us the poisonous seed

Look to what we amounted
How we lied and we stole
We were chasing our silhouettes
And gone out of control

On the verge of existence
There the scavengers lie
Lie in wait for the wounded prey
To bleed you dry

Why, it's almost unreal
We're numb to the world
Death is what feeds the machine
No, this cannot be
Line up the herd
Give us the poisonous seed

(Poison)
Whoa
(Poison)

Why, it's almost unreal
We're numb to the world
Death is what feeds the machine
No, this cannot be
Line up the herd
Give us the poisonous seed, seed, seed

(Poison)
(Poison)
Whoa-ah
4. Repent My Sins (3:51)
I
I'm digging my way
Down through the gravel
A hole to my grave
Death
Is coiled 'round my neck
Cheering me on
As I lower myself

Save me
I've lost my bearings
I'm falling free
Spare me
If you help me I swear I'll
I swear that I will repent my sins

You
You're the leech in my heart
The one that's been bleeding me
Dry from the start
And now
I'm knee deep in filth
Down in the quicksand
Against my own will

Save me
I've lost my bearings
I'm falling free
Spare me
If you help me I swear I'll
I swear that I will repent my sins

Save me
I've lost my bearings
I'm falling free

Oh, oh-oh, oh
I will repent my sins

(Save me)
'Cause I've lost my bearings
I'm falling free
Spare me
If you help me I swear I'll
I swear that I will repent my sins
I will repent my sins
5. What's Killing Me (4:19)
(Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)

I can't breathe because of you
'Cause everything you do is choking me
You keep pulling on that rope
Like a leash 'round my neck, my neck
Still it's all I ever wanted
Every little drop of poison was my cure
When nothing is left to destroy
I want more, more

I can see finally
Now I know what's killing me

I'm falling
It's pulling on my soul
Something's awake in me
I'm calling
From now I'll walk alone
And nothing will stand in my way
'Cause now I know what's killing me

(Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)

What am I supposed to do?
Now that everything I built is gone
And all of the things
I wanted are lost, lost
Where am I supposed to go now?
When every road I try leads right back again
And every drop of my blood
Was in vain, in vain

Whoa
Now I know what's killing me

I'm falling
It's pulling on my soul
Something's awake in me
I'm calling
From now I'll walk alone
And nothing will stand in my way
'Cause now I know what's killing me

Now I know what's killing me

I'm falling
It's pulling on my soul
Something's awake in me
I'm calling
From now I'll walk alone
And nothing will stand in my way
Now I know what's killing me

(I'm falling)
Oh-oh, oh-ho
(Something's awake in me)
(I'm calling)
From now I'll walk alone
And nothing will stand in my way
Now I know what's killing me
6. A Song for You (3:50)
Tell me, did you ever fell
Like a ship way out at sea
Just waiting to go under?

Crashing waves, heavy rain
The wind is tearing up your sails
Like you sink into the water
Again and again and again

Here's a song for the ones
Everyone that come undone
The ones that stood their ground
Here's a song for the ones
Everyone that broke the mold
This song is just for you, you, you

Tell me why we're playing god
To cover up our flaws
What really makes us who we are

Must conform, get in line
Never break out from the norm
Pretend like you are someone else
Never, never, never

Here's a song for the ones
Everyone that come undone
The ones that stood their ground
Here's a song for the ones
Everyone that broke the mold
This song is just for you, you, you

Whoa, on this trail of broken halos
You pave your way and carry on
Whoa, though the world is on your shoulders
You carry on, carry on, carry on

This is for the ones
Who always chose to carry on

Here's a song for the ones
Everyone that come undone
The ones that stood their ground
Here's a song for the ones
Everyone that broke the mold
This song is just for you, you, you

(Here's a song for the ones)
This song is just for you
This song is just for you

Here's a song for the ones
Everyone that broke the mold
This song is just for you, you, you
Is just for you
7. The Ghost Inside Me (5:33)
I never thought I'd stand
On the edge of the world
Holding one foot off the ledge
And I can't believe I'd see
My life in reverse
Playing out inside my head

But I lost my compass
And went astray
Now I'm drowning in this hole

I'll come alive the day I know
I've rid all the demons inside
It never ends, it won't let go
Till all of my shadows are dead
And then I'll face the ghost inside me

I never knew I'd crawl
To the ends of the Earth
On my bare and bloody knees
And now I'm numb, can't feel
Though I know that it hurts
Like a thousand knives in me

In my darkest hour
I can't wait
I just have to face it now

I'll come alive the day I know
I've rid all the demons inside
It never ends, it won't let go
Till all of my shadows are dead
And then I'll face the ghost inside me

The ghost, the ghost (hey)
The ghost, the ghost (hey)
The ghost, the ghost (hey)
The ghost (hey)

I'll come alive the day I know
I've rid all the demons inside
It never ends, it won't let go
Till all of my shadows are dead

(I'll come alive) come alive
(The day I know) the day I know
(Ah, ah)
It never ends, it won't let go
Till all of my shadows are dead
And then I'll face the ghost inside me
8. Nothing Can Break Me (4:21)
Down this nowhere road I go
Trading pieces of my own soul
To highest bidders and lousy thieves
Who want a piece of me
They try to break and hold me down
But I won't give in, no, I'll stand my ground
Wipe the slate, my head up high
I'll crawl back up again
Today I come alive

I break away
Let the world come down
Can't wait forever
Before I come undone
I'll pave my way
While my heart still beats
On the edge of never
Then the world will see
That nothing can break me

The weight I carry, the cross I bear
The thousand voices that I still hear
Reminding me of my every sin
The battle I can't win
They grab my throat and pull me down
Drag my face through the filthy mud
Wipe the slate, won't bend or break
I'll crawl back up again
Tomorrow starts today

I break away
Let the world come down
Can't wait forever
Before I come undone
I'll pave my way
While my heart still beats
On the edge of never
Then the world will see
That nothing can break me

(Oh-ho, oh-ho)

I break away
Let the world come down
Can't wait forever
Before I come undone
I'll pave my way
While my heart still beats
On the edge of never
Then the world will see
That nothing can break me
Nothing can break me
9. Flames (4:07)
Today I met myself
On a road that lead to somewhere
Far away from here
I listened when I spoke
'Bout picking up my halo
The dues I owe

I know that I can turn around
But on I go somehow

Flames, burning brighter
Washing the daylight away
Flames, my world's on fire
A beacon to keep me astray
I light up in flames

When I close my eyes
I hear this lullaby
Repeating every night
About who I used to be
'Bout picking up the pieces
The little left of me

I know that I can turn around
But on I go somehow

(x2) Flames, burning brighter
Washing the daylight away
Flames, my world's on fire
A beacon to keep me astray
I light up in flames

(Flames burn)
I light up in flames
(Flames burn)
I light up in flames
10. Used to Be God (Bonus Track) (3:17)
Whoa, take a look at this troubled world
We, the people, that never learn
Just watch our nations burn
Now, with democracy overturned
On the news, have you not heard?
We're at the point, the point of no return
Ugh

Here is the retribution
We're gearing up for revolution
Line up at the barricades
We'll lead the way
We are the resolution
The end of all this destitution
Looks like destruction comes again
Welcome to the end

Oh, now the gutters are red with blood
And the bodies are piling up
Now we know that it's begun
No, public enemy number one
Making peace with a loaded gun
We're at the point, the point of no return

(x2) Here is the retribution
We're gearing up for revolution
Line up at the barricades
We'll lead the way
We are the resolution
The end of all this destitution
Looks like destruction comes again
Welcome to the end
