Track Name: Introduction
Instrumental
Track Name: Sea of the Dead
Just to save you from the site of this pit
I'll open up your eyes and cauterize your retina
Blinded by lies and living beneath...

Beneath this visage of existence lie the eyes of an underworld
With chosen leaders spinning the nightmare in a whirlwind of madness
Diverted vision hides the tyranny sleeping soundly beside you
Masked by pride, controlled by the images the government spreads
This fallen future is framed with false security
And politicians baptized in the waters of the sea of the dead
It's just another day to survive so you better get started

Through endless eyes, I stare at worlds decayed
In hopeless times, I call for mutiny
Progression, Digression, Regression, Obsession
Forward we go when the way back is blocked
Behind disaster has struck and torched the sky

Is this our future? This life of wasted days...
I can't allow it I must restore our ways
Is this our future? This life of wasted days...
I can't allow it I must restore the faith
Is this our future? This life of wasted days...
Track Name: Suffocate
Shadows of fate tell tales of terror
Fare the well the world you know has fallen to decay
Constant war has spurred the ban of everything you know
Tyranny has thinned the herd, forcing life into this state
Through provokes a knife to the throat; Anesthetized elation

Fear not my child for I shall save this world from disarray

Stripped of hope, pledge the oath, suffocate the soul
Plunged in darkness minds may see
Dreams of the death; haunted screams
Men proclaimed as deities
With eyes forced open
Now I see...

Lest not ye bow to the father's future
Lest not ye bend to the will of his hand
The faith he pushes is not the answer
Escape the lie, escape the scam

I vow to ruin the master's plan
Witness this upon my rebirth
With newfound freedom I'll retake the enslaved
And all the faithful shall burn
Track Name: Manifesto
This is a rant, a manifesto if you will
The truth it hurts; causing blight
Ever in control, over bearing instigator
Dictating every line of sight

Cooperation; It's not a word every known
Domination; Engrained deep within the bone

Yes! The rant, the manifesto if you will
The truth it hurts; causing blight
Ever in control, over bearing instigator
Dictating every line of sight

Strangle creativity
Brotherhood monopoly

Vomit forth speeches of vision
Venture to obscurity and realize
Words matter not, perish the thought

You said you need a real opinion?
Here's my fist!
Track Name: Wall of Sleep
Falling in to the black, into voids of fools
Facing further decline, praying for solitude
Dreaming, screaming for life, waiting for the night
Massive green flash of light, followed to the death

Gone too far; Nothing can escape

Cannot escape this family tree of death
Embrace this certainty
Failing to find this curses cause
The cause of my flight

Beyond the wall of sleep

Facing facts through histories of violence
I'm trapped, we're trapped, trapped to
Dream of things that should not be
I'm doomed, we're doomed
For all eternity

A world of darkened skies
Exists only in minds of a forsaken kind
Accept this fate
Track Name: Wretched Hives
Here is the truth, a sales pitch for the masses
To awaken from the slumber of the mind
Everyday you lay entrance in the madness
Blinded by the lie called a life

"The scum of the earth tread heavy the highways, shambling through the wretched hives formerly known as cities. Everyone you know, everyone you ever cared about... Is dead!"

Doth dreams deceive this earthly shell
What's left to believe when earth becomes hell?

I begged for death while waiting for my desert to clear of scavengers
Yet through the images in sightless eyes, I came to understand

It's not a book it's a weapon, baby
The one who holds it can control the world
Through it's verses we gain compliance
Followers who kill for the word

Kill for the word
Kill for the word

I need, we need, I need

White fades into grey, sands melt into clay
Oceans dry up in drought, humans hold no sway

Doth dreams deceive this earthly shell
What's left to believe when earth becomes...
