Track Name: Circles
Why am I wasting my days to breathe?
When there are only eyes on the gallows
Waiting to see, trying to feel,
Waiting to start to heal

What could I do to face my fears
When my roots are growing in
I cannot find a way

Every second that I’m with my horrors
Who the fuck took my voice
The remnants of my moving tongue
Every second that I live my life

Times ain’t waiting for us to follow
While the thread is burning out
What is said now will never get done
Under the curse of this world

Every second that I’m with my horrors
Who the fuck took my voice
The remnants of my moving tongue
Every second that I live my life

I learn
To be dead behind the eyes
I learn
To be dead

Times ain’t waiting for us to follow
While the thread is burning out
What is said now will never get done
Under the curse of this fucking world

Am I dead?

Now that I’m wasting my days to breathe
I am disappointed

With broken knees I climb the stairs
Reaching to something behind that wall
So many nails have been scratching the door
But none of them, none of them
With broken knees I climb the stairs
Reaching to something behind that wall
So many nails have been scratching the door
But none of them will find the light
Track Name: Dark Horse
Stand up and fight for the things
That matter the most to you
You’ve got to take what’s yours
And never give in for
What they ask nor what they tell you to do
It only drives their own fucking interest

We won’t be defined
We won’t be criticized
We won’t be defined by you

We might get washed away from the lifeline
The courage we need is right inside us
Stand against a sea of enemies
They can't fucking break us

We won't be compromised
We won't be condemned
We won't be compromised by you

You can draw a line in the sand
But it's easy to step over it
We gotta do what really is necessary
Unrest out of dissent

We bring the silence
For what comes to our lives
We bring the silence
Right back into your mouth
We bring the silence
Though we stand alone
We bring the silence
Right back into your heart
Into your heart

We cast the stone to tremble the temple
It will shake for the sake of threat
They gotta face the unpleasant aftermath
Unrest that's what they said

We bring the silence
For what comes to our lives
We bring the silence
Right back into your mouth
We bring the silence
Though we stand alone
We bring the silence
Right back into your heart
Into your fucking heart
Track Name: Ascend
Rose leaves on a palm of a hand
Exposure will make them ascend
Careful not to clench too tight
They lose color
And leave just a memory behind

These days are a dime a dozen

Run-down shelter gaining strength
From troubles' demise
Gaunting thoughts will step aside
One less but the leaves will bloom

Can one perfect day
Compensate all the grief I've felt?
Can one thriving leaf
Replace a withering crop?
Can one perfect day
Compensate all the grief I've felt?
Can one thriving leaf
Replace a withering crop?

When all the others are lost

All this time
I've filled my hands with emptiness
A swirl of wind has taken them
All this time
I've filled my hands with emptiness
But from this point forward
I'll remember to keep them safe and sound

I won't forget
what it is to stumble through the dark waters
I won't forget
that in the deepest abyss I still have red in my hands

Red in my hands
In my hands!

All this time
I've filled my hands with emptiness
A swirl of wind has taken them
All this time
I've filled my hands with emptiness
But from this point forward
I'll remember to keep them safe and sound

All this time
Emptiness
But from this point forward
I'll remember to keep them safe and sound
All this time
I will remember
Track Name: W.M.H.B.
Another night poured down the drain
I am tired to feel numb of everything
A long time ago I made a pledge
How I would set the sticks on the board

So it seems that I have lost them all
In ruins lie the dreams that I once built
I know these words have been said before
But I don’t know who the fuck I am anymore

Can you look right through me?
Is there something you can see?

I have always resent self-pity
And I thought it was a fix
To feel something else
Than what it represents
I have never felt this lonely

Surrounded by the people
Who love me but I can’t give it
The respect that it needs
This mask has started to
Live a life of its own
It is wearing me out

Sometimes a person can’t exist
Without letting others down
I am not an exception
They say making mistakes
Gives us a key to deliverance
I just want everyone to know
that I am sorry for everything

Tangled by these vines of hate
I lost the game and closed my eyes
At nights when I can’t really sleep
The feeling of inadequacy takes me
In a way I’m exhausted by shame
The darkest hour will cover it all
I deny and I forget
Never had the chance to feel regret

Sometimes a person can’t exist
Without letting others down
I am not an exception
They say making mistakes
Gives us a key to deliverance
I just want everyone to know
That I am sorry for everything
Track Name: Victims
Silence is not a sign
Of my fucking compliance
These depraved walls
Are on the verge of coming down
Leaving traces of bittered bricks
To remind us what we were built of
The artifact of hope
Through its cracks I can see it now

Dodge the bullet one more time
And I promise I'll shoot you myself

I won't stay in this sinking ship
'cause I know it won't hold much longer
If you point your finger at me again
I swear I'll break them all
Cracking of bones is a soundtrack
As I am making this even
Instead of me it will be you filling lungs
In this endless sea of shit

Swim against the tide

I won't be a victim
I won't get casted aside
I reclaim my self-respect
So sleep with the
Sleep with the fishes bitch!

How am I supposed to be
Everything you force me to be?
I only have one choice to make
Fight back or get left fucking dead
What am I supposed to feel
As I pull this knife out of me?
Eyes covered I'm walking the plank
But I have some dignity left in me

Fuck you!
Track Name: Labyrinth of Deception
Seven years ago
You chose to let me hang on hollow grounds
Destroy what was yet to become
Unbreakable
So that you could keep
Circling around from a nest to another
You need to get ghost

The creatures of the past walking beside me
Showing the way, the directions to take
And for this one time
In this crowning moment
I want to separate the foe from the hero

I can feel the white light
Dying down in my fragile and forgotten body
I will never be the same again
You contaminated me
When I was at my weakest

Vague purposes
A milestone of mine
was a steppingstone for you
What I tell you now,
Carve it to your fucking mind
I will never let it go
You took everything I value in life
First time for everything
But this sure as hell was the last for me

The pain
Brighter days are dust in the wind
You stole my time
I would even give my tongue to get it back
Words ain’t gonna help me find myself
from this labyrinth of deception
I want to fall asleep
Knowing that I have days before me
I close my eyes and hope you wake up

Seven years ago you already lived my life
In a heartbeat it was gone
Seven years ago you already lived my life
In a heartbeat it was gone
Track Name: Through Defeat
When the days are darkened
A new breed is born
The strong become weakened
Struck down to one knee

Gazing to the heavens
To see a glimpse of a silver lining
The way the world once stood
Exists no more

Catastrophic incidents
Will end an era for someone
There’s water everywhere
What do we have to gain
In order to help the helpless
Those in struggle,
those in need for a better tomorrow

We’ve got to fight for this
We need to get back on our feet
We need each other
To be born again from the ashes filling the air
Give me a word and say
I won’t be left alone in this mess
In the moment of weakness
We need to wipe the faces of strangers

In the breaking of dawn
As the light finally shows a peak of itself
The sight of a total devastation is etching, overwhelming
You need to take our hands
cause we are still shaking of fear
Broken moon draws a tide to itself

Flood! Flood! Flood
There is water everywhere

We are only individuals
Walking on the face of the earth
Taking little steps
Until we hit the shore
With the burning debris and day dreams torn
No one to lift us up
We cry for helping hand
Helping hand
Track Name: Ghosts Recede
The morning extends its arms
Refuse to take what it offers
Lifeless light paints the walls
A hard beginning makes a perfect ending

This dawn gives a new chance
Will you take it?
Form the chaos,
build it up and claim the power
The ruins and the ghosts
Are far behind you
A day of turmoil in your hands
It can be found by crossing over

Here’s a toast
to the nights we won’t remember
With the friends we will never forget

WE ARE here for this
UNITED against the legion
WE ARE venom for the weak
UNDEFEATED, united
WE ARE here for this
UNITED against the legion
WE ARE venom for the weak
UNDEFEATED, united


Never give up and never give in
Give them hell with the burn within
Night is your bitch you fucking paid for it
It’s here and now so make it count
For this time that we are given
Live the moment don’t look back
Tear the walls down surf the crowd
Fuck the rules just make us proud

When the night falls
The armada appears
Children of the night come together

Hangovers will last a day
But the memories we make tonight
will last a lifetime

WE ARE here for this
UNITED against the legion
WE ARE venom for the weak
UNDEFEATED, united
WE ARE here for this
UNITED against the legion
WE ARE venom for the weak
UNDEFEATED, united

As one we are
Unstoppable, unfuckwithable
Strength in numbers is control over this
Our family means that no one gets left behind
With these words in mind
Fuck this place up!

WE ARE here for this
UNITED against the legion
WE ARE venom for the weak
UNDEFEATED, united
WE ARE here for this
UNITED against the legion
WE ARE venom for the weak
UNDEFEATED, united
Track Name: Out Came the Wolves...
From now on I lay in the shadows
These traps are set once more
As far as I know
The purity will blacken again
Harvest the fields of this golden age

Without true purpose
I’m deceived
By the ones who once
Once set the walls up

I’m the one pushed against the wall

Out came the wolves
These lives are filled with lies
Burned for nothing
You’re not the only one

Don’t walk out
Don’t turn a blind eye
Don’t walk out
Don’t walk away

Now two of us stand on the edge
Purifying rain will wash our faces
The paintings will soon be wiped away
And the true colors will shine once again

Look into my eyes and say it loud
That you’re not the one to blame
Undisguise yourself

Out came the wolves
These lives are filled with lies
Burned for nothing
You’re not the only one
Out came the wolves
These lives are filled with lies
Burned for nothing
You’re not the only one

Which side you’re on?
This kind of life,
Life is worth nothing
Finally I’m relentlessly
Fighting for nothing
Track Name: Event Horizon
Sinister wind brings the final breath
To this smothering city of fear
Collective regret made them face
The impending tempest

Everyone looks so pale and faceless
Pale and faceless
The old haven has no walls
It has no walls

Time has come for father to clear the path
For mother to show her wrath
Give us the black rain we deserve
In the eye of the storm you can be heard

The brooding sky, it’s getting grimmer
Dance in the rain turns into a hide and seek
Untouchable, we have all lived in illusion
Now we bow in front of the storm

The city’s glow is a light house
guiding its way to shore
Departing water is dragging
the shoreline under her fierce care
The breeze before rain
is a siren’s cunning call to arms
She summons her forces
to pull us back where we belong

The brooding sky, it’s getting grimmer
Dance in the rain turns into a hide and seek
Untouchable, we have all lived in illusion
Now we bow in front of the storm

Can’t escape it
They stare at me
Bodies on the ground
I’m losing it
They scream at me
Now
Silence breaks!
