Track Name: Nothing
So you wanna play games with me?
You better bite your tongue or you’ll lose your teeth
You’re always running your mouth, you don’t know when to shut up
I always knew you would end up this way: all you are is just a fake

FAKE

You have nothing left
Nothing for the end
You gambled away the rent
And this will never last

Now, you lonely bastard, here you are
Sitting all alone, the only company your scars
You’re so stubborn will you ever see?
You did this to yourself

YOU DID THIS TO YOURSELF

You have nothing left
Nothing for the end
You gambled away the rent
And this will never last

You have nothing left
Nothing for the end
You gambled away the rent
And this will never last
The way you live your life
The people you destroy
Your self-destructive nature
You will never last

The fracture in your black heart is because of your greed in part
You did this, will you ever see?
Track Name: Your Empire
You keep building empires
Just to watch them burn down
You never learn, oh no
So heavy lies the crown
Burn down, rebuild, repeat
That’s how the story goes
You’re too focused on the message
You forgot about the prose

Save your empire
Before it all burns down
With your luck it’ll wash away
You’ll witness your empire
Your empire

State of mind, state of grace
You’re moving uphill but you’re in the same place
And you’re stuck here
You’re stuck in a world of fear
You’re trying to move on
But you’re heading for the cliff
Better step back, better step back
Before you feel death’s sweet kiss

Save your empire
Before it all burns down
With your luck it’ll wash away
You’ll witness your empire
Your empire

Save your empire
Before it all burns down
With your luck it’ll wash away
Save your empire
Before it all burns down
With your luck it’ll wash away
You’ll witness your empire
Your empire
Track Name: Voices Of The Night
Breathe. Relax
Explain everything to me
I know. You’re right
These things come with tragedy
There is way out
Find the light and bring it to your heart
Be still. Be still
I know you can find it, I know you will

There’s something lurking in the shadows
It’s following you, it’s here in your room
There’s voices keeping you awake
I know what they do, I can hear them too

Stop. Just think
This is not the way it has to be
Sit and breathe
Let the pain go, let the pain go
The monster inside
Is always there, it eats you alive
I know what it’s like
I’ve got the same monster in my mind

There’s something lurking in the shadows
It’s following you, it’s here in your room
There’s voices keeping you awake
I know what they do, I can hear them too
Track Name: Suicide Barrier
One for one and none for all
This is how we let our society fall

Impractical practices have left us rotting in the gutter
How could we fall? We flew so high
I can’t bear to think just close the shutters
I'll forget what I saw outside

You see – we abandoned all hope
We forfeit our saviour (our saviour)
The choice was ours to walk this path
And dismantle the suicide barrier

One for one and none for all

Delusional dreamer can you face yourself?
The seeds you planted grew can you face your hell?

And now you face the tree of life
Thorns grow from every side
No room for growth
No space for hope

You see – we abandoned all hope
We forfeit our saviour (our saviour)
The choice was ours to walk this path
And dismantle the suicide barrier

This is how we let our society fall
Track Name: Vessels
Just take it slow
There’s no need to rush
It’ll all be over soon
I know you’ve seen too much
I know the devils in your skin
He’s feeding your thoughts
It hurts your brain
Its perpetual loss
But for once you welcome the pain

Let it in
Let it go
A ravishing creature
Ravaging your soul
Let it be
Let it soar
Your mind’s just a vessel bound to find a hole
You’ll sink

Just take a moment
And think of what it is to be
The lies will always find you
Before the truth sets you free
I’ve been there before
I know what it’s like
To see the space before you
At the end of the night
Before you let go

Let it in
Let it go
A ravishing creature
Ravaging your soul
Let it be
Let it soar
Your mind’s just a vessel bound to find a hole
You’ll sink

Give in to the waves (the pyre is waiting for you)
Let them take control (it will all be over soon)
Forget what it’s like to have only chaos in your mind
To always fear the tide
Remember what it’s like to be alive

Let it in
let it go
A ravishing creature
Ravaging your soul
Let it be
Let it soar
Your mind’s just a vessel bound to find a hole
Just swim
Track Name: Good Money, Bad Things
Careless in your actions
You’ve lost sight of the end
Your plan for who you wanted to be
Everything inside of you is screaming “turn the other way”
But you have to face the end you chose

Good money, bad things have turned you inside out
You’re not the person I knew

How could you turn your back
How could you just pretend?
You’re not who I thought you to be
Everything inside of you is screaming “turn the other way”
But you ignore it, you face your demise

Good money, bad things have turned you inside out
You’re not the person I knew
Good money, bad things have changed you
You’re not the person I knew
I thought I knew you
Track Name: Wolves Of Paris
I’m tired, I’m weak
I’m bleeding from my cheeks
Can someone explain what’s happening to me?
I hear wolves
I’m numb, I can’t speak
I’m wrestling with the deep
Can someone out there just save me?
I hear wolves

I pray they’re not at my door
I pray like I’ve done before
Like it will matter
Like it will change a thing

Only once in my life did I ever think
That nothing could stop me or push me to the brink

I’m tired, I’m weak
I’m bleeding from my cheeks
Can someone explain what’s happening to me?
I hear wolves
I’m numb, I can’t speak
I’m wrestling with the deep
Can someone out there just save me?
I hear wolves

I hear them at my door
Pawing at the windows and clawing at the floor
I feel my blood run cold
I feel my blood run with no one to hold

I’m tired, I’m weak
I’m bleeding from my cheeks
Can someone explain what’s happening to me?
I hear wolves
I’m numb, I can’t speak
I’m wrestling with the deep
Can someone out there just save me?
I hear wolves
Track Name: Head Full Of Hell
You were my best friend
Lost and alone
We were doomed to end
You were a dog chasing a bone

Abandoning all your hopes and dreams
Giving up on what you used to see
For your future, for your destiny
Giving up on what you could’ve been

Your head is full of hell and it’s what you made it to be
Your head is full of hell
It’s your own damn fault
Maybe this is destiny

You’re all alone
Abandoning everyone
Your path in life is a dark, unlit street
And it was just you and me

Abandoning all your hopes and dreams
Giving up on what you used to see
For your future, for your destiny
Giving up on what you could’ve been

Your head is full of hell and it’s what you made it to be
Your head is full of hell
It’s your own damn fault
Maybe this is destiny

You’re lost - so cry out
Give up the ghost, just cry out
God are you listening?
I’ve been alone for so long
I’m the mess I’ve made
Everything I’ve done has turned out wrong

My head is full of hell and it’s what I made it to be
My head is full of hell
It’s my own damn fault
Maybe this is destiny
Track Name: This Is Giving Up
I’m a failure
There’s nothing left of me
I’m a failure
There’s too much wrong with me

All I can see is the darkness within
The shadows beneath my skin

I’m a failure
There’s nothing left of me
I’m a failure
There’s too much wrong with me

Every corner in my head; every shadow
Screaming at me "You’re nothing, you're nothing!"

You’re nothing

I’m a failure
There’s nothing left of me
I’m a failure
There’s too much wrong with me
I’m a failure
I can’t keep you with me
I’m a failure
Just leave me be

I’m a failure
There’s nothing left of me
I’m a failure
There’s too much wrong with me
Track Name: Burn Marks
A child cries in the night
Her belly is empty; her eyes are full of fright
Her feet won’t move anymore
Mother murder, I hear you at my door

Burn marks still scar her face
War wounds she shouldn’t have to bear
But her soul is full of hope
Despite your actions she’s no worse for the wear

Pray child don’t lose hope
It’s the only thing you’ll have at the end of your rope

Before you see the sun

Burn marks don’t weigh her down
The blood on her face doesn’t stain the crown
Princess of agony; she survived the more than most
Dear parents, why aren’t more than just ghosts?

Lift the weight
Bear the fate
They won’t take your soul
They won’t take your soul
Play the game
Take the blame
They won’t take your soul
They won’t swallow you whole

You’ll see the sun
