Track Name: Existence (feat. Shiraaz Rahim of Dimensions)
I was born in to world at war
This is my existence

Since conception, I have been your bane
From the womb, you have feared my name
You sought to devour the child, to end it in infancy
You have feared what I'd become but you will not destroy me

I may suffer at the cruelty of your hands
My body may break but it's not yours to take

Legions face me
Demons chase me
I was counted for the slaughter
Yet through this I'll prevail

Too long you have shadowed my steps
Too long you have tasted the air for my scent
You preyed on my humanity to bring your reign to eternity
You waged war with those I love, and claimed it as collateral

Legions face me
Demons chase me
I was counted for the slaughter
Yet through this I'll prevail

I will prevail
I'm stronger then these chains
I'm stronger then deaths blade

I know your reign will end

Your reign will end
Track Name: Travesty (feat. Ben Jones of Scars Have Faded)
I am the bearer of the blade in your back
I am the beast dragging you to the black
I am the oppressor of the weak
I am the siren leading you to wreck
I am the poison that you breathe
The bringer of doom, the bringer of doom
The engineer of all you despise
I am disgrace

I am murderer
I am perverter
I am deceiver
I am destroyer

Yet you forgave the traitor and forsaken the work of my hands

I am the wolf I am the wisp, I drove you from home I led you to drown
I am the abomination, the twisted shell of a man
The travesty of humanity, I am worthy of death I am worthy of hell
Just take this axe to my head you'll be safer once I'm dead

I’m deserving of fire
Please light the pyre
I’m deserving of fire
Please light the pyre
Can I come back from this?
Can I come back from this?

Have I ever abandoned you? (nothing will sever me from you)
Have you ever fallen too far from me? (not the blood of innocence)
(nor flames nor pestilence)
No matter the depth in which you dwell (no height no depth)
(no angel no demon)
Nothing is beyond my reach my son
(shall keep me from you)

But I've sewed with the blood of the innocent
Feed my crop of corruption
The master of slaughter, the father of horror
Would you spare the wolf that devoured your flock?

Oh God I’ve fallen so far

My grace is yours
Cut this stone from my chest
Burn this root within my flesh
Track Name: Void
I’ve been here for years, finding rest in nothing
I’ve found my peace at rock bottom where I can’t sink any further

I run to the pit, I seek the void, embrace the dark
I hoped nothing would find me in this abyss
How wrong was I?
Torrents of the mind, it flowed and rushed yet it never stopped
The tongue of thought never saw rest, spitting poison
Birthing the grotesque from the smallest seed fear spawned panic

I’ve become a servant to fear, my master is unrelenting
What do you want from me?
Do you enjoy my suffering?
I can’t out run the ruler of the synapse
How do I escape this?

I won't last the night; the sun has died, and so will I
The weight of this force, it comes, it kills; it's tyrannical
Yet it’s never seen
I'm but a child; seeking escape, from hells prison
What chance do I stand against the strength of such evil?
Every waking moment I bring myself closer to my own doom

Can’t get out can’t get out can’t get out
Can’t get out, I can’t escape
Let me out, let me go

All my life I was searching for a reason to live but sick of getting pounded to the ground
I’m sorry I make you feel down but I can't live like I’m drowning in my own blackened sin
Thank you for the times you stuck by me but now it’s my time to go so you can move on with your life
I'll see you on the other side

You will see the dawn, you will see life
You will remain unforsaken
There is peace in resistance, there is peace in existence
You will overcome oblivion
You will stand stronger than the weight of death
Track Name: Freedom
I leave the remnants of who I once was
No matter the strife I will never fold
Hindsight is such a beautiful thing, I was never alone I was never forsaken
Life must go on

From here on out, I am a free man
Free to live, free to be
This is the moment where I move on
This is my first step out from the void
The purpose of my life is greater than myself
This life is not my own
My future is set in stone
Track Name: My Return
Awakened from my sleep
The sound splits my casket
My once decaying body surging into life

Reconstructing as I reach the surface I hear my name; get up and come home

Abandon the sea, forsake your graves
For I hold the key to eternal life
The throat of the ocean opens
Releasing her captives to life

The dead are no longer contained
Hades, your judgement has come
Upon the ashes of your kingdom
I will build a new earth
Now give up your dead

I’ll reduce your gates to splinters, your walls to dust
I will burn your doors to charcoal, your chains to rust
I’ll reduce your gates to splinters, your walls to dust
I will burn your doors to charcoal, your chains to rust

In the darkest corner of existence no place for you will be found
I’ll tear the fangs from your mouth, the sting of your touch will never find another soul

Abandon the sea, forsake your graves
For I hold the key to eternal life
The dead are no longer contained
Hades your judgement has come

Called from my sleep, never again to taste your razors edge
Alive forever; deaths defeat, deaths demise
Eternity brings forth destruction's last day
Grim will drown, grim will drown in the fire

Abandon the sea, forsake your graves
For I hold the key to eternal life
The dead are no longer contained
Hades your judgement has come
Track Name: Depth
The depths of my heart cannot be reached, my spirit and soul you cannot breach
A bottomless pit of love and light preparing you with the will to fight

The darkness of the world that grips all things, that manifests itself in diamonds and rings
Will bow before us when we stand and scream:
They will never defeat us
The love and light is so supreme
I'm losing myself in this place that I call home

Follow me to the surface
Leaving the old for the new

I need you here
I need you here

I need you here to help me show the way
I'm choking on death

I need to breathe and be free
Drag me from the pit… I'm pleading

As I look up I see you staring at me seeing all my wrongs
I feel ashamed with what I've done
And all of the mistakes I have made I just what you to forgive me so I can move on with my life, please bring forgiveness

I need you here to help me show the way
I can't do it all on my own
I'm choking on death
I need to be free

Follow me to the surface

My fallen self sinks to the depths

I rise alive renewed, remade
All I can see is you in my vision
The world no longer holds me down
I am free from darkness and one with… Light
