01. Beneath The Machine

Start the needle up again as I crawl to the chair
Anticipate the pain
Feel the charge in the air, sick fascination
Can't wash away this alteration

Beneath the machine
Constant noise inside my head
Trading blood for ink, into torture I will sink
Beneath the machine again

Sometimes a picture to make heads turn
Sometimes a badge of honor earned
Always a reminder of pain endured
Never a way to say these words

Beneath the machine
Constant noise inside my head
Trading blood for ink, into torture I will sink
Beneath the machine again

Just remember
It's all for time
By skin be judged, with my skin define

Beneath the machine
Constant noise inside my head
Trading blood for ink, into torture I will sink
Beneath the machine again


02. Brotherhood Of Destruction

Screaming with confidence
Lips built to bleed
The war it starts with them
With haunted eyes they feed

Pain on your face, pushing your way through
Picking up the fallen, knowing that it's you
Tortured eyes in a dreamless mind, I look away
A different kind of blood flows through our veins forever

Can't help but feel the power
Of something deep inside
Bloody and beaten down
There is no need to hide

Tortured eyes in a dreamless mind, I look away
A different kind of blood flows through our veins forever

Show me your pain, show me your fear
Gather your strength and keep it near

Pain on your face, pushing your way through
Picking up the fallen, knowing that it's you
Tortured eyes in a dreamless mind, I look away
A different kind of blood flows through our veins forever

Show me your pain, show me your fear
Gather your strength, keep it near


03. Road To Bloodshed

Blindness from your own hand
Fall from the edge, join souls with lives untold

Clear your mind of guilt, Pass it down the line
Tithe away your fear, beg for a sign

Lost in shadows, lost in fate
Dim as the road to bloodshed
Scattered ashes, none remains
Blessed or the damned

Bow to nothing, fall to your knees again
Distant redemption, our way of life is death and sin

Lost in shadows, lost in fate
Dim as the road to bloodshed
Scattered ashes, none remains
Blessed or the damned

Find your way to nowhere, lose your face in darkness
And live your life in despair

Clear your mind of guilt, pass it down the line
Tithe away your fear, beg for a sign

Lost in shadows, lost in fate
Dim as the road to bloodshed
Scattered ashes, none remains
Blessed or the damned


04. Laws Of Reason

Within the screaming system a burning fever hides
Temperature rises in a sea of bodies in the depths the pressure boils
Uncontrollable chaos, madness in the mob
Look at the faces around you, collective conscience for all

Wait for the time to open the gates
Break with fury what it may create

Witness the decay of order
Where is your system now

Then the noise begins to shake the very ground
Chaos in every direction, every face a blur of sound
Wild eyes of the mob unified in sight
Joined by the energy of insanity

Wait for the time to open the gates
Break with fury what it may create

Witness the decay of order
Where is your system now
Here's to the fall of the laws of reason
Let the madness out

Ripping pain of freedom
Boundaries overthrown

Witness the decay of order
Where is your system now
Here's to the fall of the laws of reason
Let your system down

Witness the decay of order
Where is your system now
Here's to the fall of the laws of reason
Let the madness out


05. Billy Seals

I've lost with all the best intentions
I've conquered through with lies
The air is burning cold, so cold

I've come full circle, I've come full circle
From pain to pain
Now one to show me the way

This time I will not fail
Won't be left behind again
My life a dismal tale
No way to guess what lies at the end

It's so hard to scream when you can't breathe

I've come full circle, I've come full circle
From pain to pain
Now one to show me the way

This time I will not fail
Won't be left behind again
My life a dismal tale
No way to guess what lies at the end

This time I will not fail
Won't be left behind again
My life a dismal tale
No way to guess what lies at the end...


06. Zeppo

Lingering in darkness, wading through my fears
My hands still bound together
Why can't we just exist, in a world so pretentious
Bleak horizons bleed disdain
For a mind so determined to reach the sky
On the wings of a dream

Why won't you fade away
Into nothing
Why won't you fade away
Into nothing

In this day and age of zeppo's and of slaves
You have been here forever
Anger and impatience always seem to burn
Your vapid sense of life, it breeds you deep into your fear

Why won't you fade away
Into nothing
Why won't you fade away
Into nothing

Now we stand before you baring all our souls
From within this living darkness
Have you no idea what it takes
To create what we are living
Every moment wrought with despair and elation
We will never be easily stopped!

Why won't you fade away
Into nothing
Why won't you fade away
Into nothing

Lingering in darkness, wading through my fears
My hands still bound together
Why can't we just exist, in a world so pretentious
Bleak horizons bleed disdain
For a mind so determined to reach the sky
On the wings of a dream


07. Beloved Killer

Pain and satisfaction, you're dying day by day
Savoring every moment of torture and ecstasy

Most beloved killer
Such a beautiful vice

Love and hate in one, the fix is so divine
Feasting on your essence while clouding your mind
No need to turn from the gun in you mouth
The taste is so delicious, death with a doubt

Most beloved killer
Such a beautiful vice
Enticed by comforting fear
Such a beautiful vice

Pain and satisfaction, you're dying day by day
Savoring every moment of torture and ecstasy

Can't stop destroying
Everything you've loved
While craving the end

Most beloved killer
Such a beautiful vice
Enticed by comforting fear
Such a beautiful vice


08. The Shape Of Things

As I watch this creature grow
It starts to take a look
Just under it's own being

And what it finds
Will be the nothing it has sought
Lost for all time, this prize

When will it bite the hand that feeds it
First taste of flesh it is so pure
The shape of things so twisted

With one quick strike
The master turns to slave
The beast has grown from it's bonds

And what it finds
Outside the gates of it's own mind
For all time unkind

When will it bite the hand that feeds it
First taste of flesh it is so pure
The shape of things so twisted

As I watch this creature grow
It starts to take a look
Just under it's own being

When will it bite the hand that feeds it
First taste of flesh it is so pure
The shape of things so twisted
No longer recognize this nightmare


09. Flatline

Morning sun for the last time, warming upon my face
Chills my blood and weary bones
My soul sheds no tears, passing in wonder
Will I ever find my way

I hear you weep beside me
Black shrouded veil won't hide your eyes

I know my life's over
Come ride the flatline

So afraid of lies beyond
Will I just turn to dust
Or instead will I be back again
To wander in this realm broken

I hear you weep beside me
Black shrouded veil won't hide your eyes

I know my life's over
Come ride the flatline
There's no life left behind my eyes

Another unfamiliar ceiling
There is no return
To anything I've know before
My journey's just begun

I know my life's over
Come ride the flatline
Come ride the flatline
There's no life left behind my eyes


10. The Rift Between

Who could have known when I opened my eyes I would see

The dark angel of my destiny
This must be some kind of dream, not it's a nightmare
Filled with guilt and shame
All those years a waste of time
Never caring
Who you left behind
I broke your faith in a:

Brothers bond
I see you there forever gone
What can I say, what can I do
The rift between us stands

I should have known when I opened my eyes I would be
The martyr of our destiny
This must be some kind of dream, not it's a nightmare
Filled with hate and pain

Brother's bond
I see you there forever gone
What can I say, what can I do
The rift between us stands

We've lost our way
Stop holding on

Brother's bond
I see you there forever gone
What can I say, what can I do
The rift between us stands
It stands


11. Seconds

Your life is ending seconds at a time
You pay no mind to what's behind
What did you think would happen now
This angry moment

Cry, cry, cry
Your life is ending seconds at a time
Can't wait to see what seconds will define

And now you're stuck, you stupid FUCK!
Don't even try to find escape
This constant grieving

Die, die, die
Your life is ending seconds at a time
Can't wait to see what seconds will define
Your life is ending

Great blinding pain
Coursing through my veins
I'm broken down inside

Your battered cage, you need to vent frustration
Your numbered days, your life is your destruction
I'm destroying all you've got
We'll take you down like it or not

Your life is ending seconds at a time
Can't wait to see what seconds will define


12. Once Again

Mankind's past has shown our origins in death
Born from the ash of life; Born from nothing left

Incinerator / Decimator
The end has come once again
How could I fail to see
The truth of it all bleeding into me

Look at the world around you
Burn out the one inside

Incinerator / Decimator
The end has come once again
How could I fail to see
The truth of it all bleeding into me

What will make the next step?
Where will you hide?
Why would you resist?
When will you die?

The end has come once again
How could I fail to see
The truth of It all bleeding into me
Bleeding into me
