Isolate 03:44
I’m sent for elimination To where I cannot know But I’m lost without a chance in Hell And I’m lost with doubts I can avoid this Come feel the fire burn I’ll slowly drift away A victim of the future with my mind and soul decayed Isolate I’m sent for eradication By whom I cannot know But I’m lost without a chance in Hell I’m the last one out I can’t avoid this Exposed to fire but I’ll burn another way A victim of the future I embrace the tourniquet Isolate Lead us all to pastures green To search and learn From ones I cannot be Lead us all to harmony To search and learn The one I cannot be

Erased 03:32
I don’t owe anything I don’t owe anyone Shoot pride for all its worth I don’t belong In a situation now That I could not repair I assert myself to sleep Show others that I’ve cared How cold is this poor life Lay ashes at my grave If it takes me away from you A subtle gesture I don’t know anyone (Cherish my Religion) I don’t know anyone (Faith is only Fiction) I don’t know anyone (Cherish my Religion) I don’t know anyone (Faith is only Fiction) This is erased, I promise, not a trace This is erased, I promise, not a trace, no delay

Two Worlds 03:29
The sense required is all too vague Within my faculties, building me This awesome presence longs to see The times I’ve fallen The times I’ve failed And I’ve never seen my hands And I couldn’t walk away Two worlds are the same tomorrow Still I must not complain The sense acquired is all too grave With less than one percent left in me This awesome prison, locked and sealed For times I’ve borrowed For times I’ve failed And I’ve never seen my hands And I couldn’t walk away Two worlds are the same tomorrow Still I must not complain And I’ve never seen my hands And I couldn’t walk away Two worlds are the same tomorrow Still I must not complain And I’ve never heard a whisper And I never speak of pain Two worlds are the same tomorrow To all I seem inane

In my head this all is, In my head this all is In my head this all is, In my head this all is In my head… I hold on tight for this mortal ride Rest my head ’til the morning’s coming down on me I realise my own sacrifice Rest my head before somebody’s going out In my head this all is, In my head this all is In my head this all is, In my head this all is In my head… Pray nightfall release me Then I could wander, Wander to deep sleep Awake despite another mortal night Rest my head for sun is shining down on me I realise try to synchronize Rest my head or somebody’s going down In my head this all is, In my head this all is In my head this all is, In my head this all is In my head… Pray nightfall release me Then I could wander, Wander to deep sleep Trying to make things work Trying to make things right Trying to make things work Without serendipity in my life It’s in my head… Pray nightfall release me Then I could wander, Wander to deep sleep

Primal 04:23
It’s deep in the mind So slick by design I’ll end up the same way maybe Don’t hold on to pride You’ll lose if you try You’ll end up the same way someday Lord I’m on my way, don’t let me down Lord I’m on my way, don’t let me down Can’t feel it inside How long can it hide You’ll end up the same way maybe Redemption denied As life passes by I’ll end up the same way someday Lord I’m on my way, don’t let me down Lord I’m on my way, don’t let me down Gets deeper inside So strong the divide I’ll end up the same way maybe Don’t lose an insight Abuse till you die We’ll all end the same way someday Lord I’m on my way, don’t let me down Lord I’m on my way, don’t let me down

Perfect Mask 03:46
I live behind the perfect mask Erase the rule forever I live behind the perfect mask Unleash the truth forever I live behind the perfect mask Too late, gonna live at last I live behind the perfect mask Too late, gonna live at last I live behind the perfect mask Erase the truth forever I live behind the perfect mask Only the true endeavour Help me I dare say there’s no other way Help me I dare say there’s no other way to go Wanton fallacy again Merciless until the end Recognise my heart is there So reveal me and disgrace me
7.
Mystify 03:49
Faced with Shame I accept a will that’s long departed Phased with games I resent a world I once regarded But now it seems that changes must be made Celebrate! Terrify me Don’t mystify your love Celebrate! Terrify me Don’t mystify your love Laced with shame I reject a thrill that’s so misguided Faith in flames I’m exempt to blame that’s so demanded But now it seems that changes have been made Celebrate! Terrify me Don’t mystify your love Celebrate! Terrify me Don’t mystify your love A simple lie brings you down, in an ordinary way A simple lie brings you down, in an ordinary way A simple lie…

Take my hand Hurray for the winter’s come Cease my plans Excuse me from the scenes of old I can meet you there? I just don’t care On this new years day With no celebration from me Understand There’s comfort with the wealth of gold Increase demands Release me from the scenes of old I can’t make it clear You just won’t hear On this new years day There’s no celebration There’s no celebration from me… I could see you there? We just don’t care On this new years day Without hesitation There’s no celebration from me…
9.
I’m self obsessed Wrong words I said It’s clear that some things ain’t worth really trying So let it go, let it be Then we’ll talk and I can Dream you’re not here Persevere, I could live without this The one you’d like to go Is taken much too slow You’re not impressed Wrong words I said A mere subject of your self indulgence So let it go, let it be Shall we talk about it? My misery Is when you breathe there’s no doubt about it The one you’d like to go Is taken much too slow
10.
All alone beside myself All alone beside myself And I’ve troubles on my mind And I’ve reached the depths of life And I hear that death’s alright Still I’ll wait for you to try When the dreams have been and gone And the torment has begun My emotions run Can’t get by with what I’ve got Always dwell on what I’ve lost Just a loaded gun A symbol of my life, a symbol of my life On the floor I crawl and writhe As the day turns into night I remove myself from sight And I reached the depths alright And I hear death’s part of life Still I wish that you would try When a dream has been and gone And the torment has begun The rejection’s done Can’t get by with what I’ve got Always dwell on what I’ve lost Just a loaded gun A symbol of my life, a symbol of my life A symbol of my life Nothing more Nothing more to say to me Nothing more to say…
11.
I live all alone, I wonder why? I live all alone, I wonder why? See me shaking never making All my life and there is no other way ‘Til I’m old enough and hit the ground Never choose because I’m here just to lose Besides a win would just release And just maybe solve my minor problems Don’t wanna seek, I won’t make a demand Because I’m taking all the things That prevent me from knowing the truth Don’t wanna seek, I won’t make a demand Because although my mind is breaking My existance makes a channel for the pain I live all alone, I wonder why? I live all alone, I wonder why? See me taking never giving all my life But there is no other way ‘Til I’m old enough and hit the ground I only lose because I never did choose And all the loneliness that’s there Is just the core of all my problems Don’t wanna seek, I won’t make a demand Because I’m taking all the things That prevent me from knowing the truth Don’t wanna seek, I won’t make a demand Because although my mind is breaking My existance makes a channel for the pain I live all alone, I wonder why? I live all alone, I wonder why?

Xavier 06:07
Fair Roseanna, your vagrancy’s a familiar tale Fraught with danger, the lives you led were judged profane Hatred enfolds us Inculcates the minds with its heresy Laymen enfold us Clemency arrives to set you free Faith Although Xavier has prayed That life giving waters may rain Down on the souls of man To cure them all of their ways These were the sins of Xaviers past Hung like jewels in the forest of veils Freedom so hard when we are all bound by laws Etched in the seam of natures own hand Unseen by all those who fail in their pursuit of faith Although Xavier has prayed That life giving waters may rain Down on the souls of man To cure them all of their ways And as the night turns into day Will the sun illuminate your way Or will the nightmares come home to stay Xavier’s love lies in chains… These were the sins of Xavier’s past Hung like jewels in the forest of veils

You leave in the morning with everything you own in a little black case Alone on a platform the wind and the rain on a sad and lonely face Mother will never understand why you had to leave But the answers you seek will never be found at home The love that you need will never be found at home Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away Pushed around and kicked around always a lonely boy You were the one that they’d talk about around town As they put you down As hard as they would try they’d hurt to make you cry But you never cried to them just to your soul No you never cried to them just to your soul Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away Cry, boy, cry You leave in the morning with everything you own in a little black case Alone on a platform the wind and the rain on a sad and lonely face Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
