01. Deceptive Mirrors

Music by K.R. Hagen, Thorsen, Nordhus
Lyrics by Thorsen
Tainted I stand here ridden with decease
Nail me with a vacant stare
Prepare me for release
Sow a scar upon my face
Plans for my resurrection laid to waste

It takes more than me
to heal the infected eye
I'd drain me dry
to heal the long lost beauty
It takes more than me
to seal the infected eye
I'll follow my fate
to cut your tongue of hate

Sink further down
Let myself drown
in my own self-deception
Watch how the mirrors twist the truth
Thoughts designed to destroy the average man
Thoughts designed to erase our confidence
Anger
Frustration
the message is now!
These are all things that now pressure my soul

I can see your face turning blue
The fire in your eyes is fading too
I can sense the fear running through your veins
as the pictures turn to red


02. My Comfort

Music by K.R. Hagen, Thorsen, Nordhus
Lyrics by Thorsen, Nordhus
My comfort
Why do you let me fall
when you see I'm about to absorb
the torment
Why do you hide and run away
when I turn to the shades
when I run from the hate
If you could grant me some strength
I could chase the thoughts away


Come lift me up
Invincible
Make it stop
Invincible
Don't play me false
Never again
I'll find my long lost salvation

My comfort
Why do you let me down
when you see I'm about to deliver
the poison
Why do you hide
and run away
when I close my eyes
and let my mind astray
If you could grant me some strength
I could suffocate the pain



Come out from the shadows
to face the day of retaliation
I will consume the poison in your name
and suck you dry

What will it take for me to face
these fearful hours
To face the facts I cannot bear

I'll consume the poison in your name
Torment strikes you all the same
A phase completed
Now let it pass

What will it take for me to face
these fearful hours
What will it take for you to help
me find my long lost salvation
My comfort
My inner self
Peace


03. Venom Inside My Veins

Music by Hansen, Thorsen, Nordhus
Lyrics by Thorsen, Nordhus
My time to give in
There's nowhere else to hide
My time to swallow
remaining drops of pride

How many tears have stained this soil?
How many souls have vanished?
I could have sworn I saw you
passing by in the blink of an eye

You bring me down to further deepness
as you focus the pain on my sides of shame
You bring me down to a level below
as you focus the pain on weakness

Time to surrender
Rip the last bit of hope
Time to lay down
Joy is not to be found

Your venom still runs inside my veins
Words of contempt to increase the suffering
Thoughts I can't deny they still appear
Black pulsating heart
You bring me down
Down
Down


04. Decadence Becomes Me

Music by Hansen, K.R. Hagen, Thorsen, Nordhus
Lyrics by Thorsen
Decadence becomes me
Halfway into the second glass
as I sit indulging in my mental filth

Depraved
Deprived
Indulge with me and kill your pride
Sin is in so join the fold
Let the only truth be told

Decadence becomes me
as my mind is getting sick
Taken into hopeless solitude
Decadence becomes me
as I'm heading to the floor
Someday I'll be out to have some more

Decadence becomes me
Halfway into the seventh glass
My senses shaken as the green ones pass

Depraved
Deprived
My image bleeds before your eyes
Sin is in so join the fold
Forget the rules that you were told

I feel the light escape my soul
Trying to gain control
Temptations everywhere
and I dare not resist
No I dare not resist
I'm too weak to turn away


05. She Weaves Shadows

Music by Hansen, Thorsen, Nordhus
Lyrics by Thorsen, Nordhus
Frail believer
Won't you wipe away the shame
Inject my soul and paint it black within a narrow frame
I have no one to follow
yet no time to linger
I must face the day alone
cause whenever around
she tends to weave shadows

See the innocent
Not afraid to stay withdrawn
from mother nature

Bound
Heaven's sent
Doesn't speak my name
But maybe later

All mercy has been withdrawn
as your world comes crashing down
and desperation knocks on your door
Why don't you dare to speak my name
Damnation
All the times we shared
appears to have been in vain

See the innocent
Heading to the skies above
from mother nature

Bound
Heaven's sent
Doesn't leave me be
but maybe someone later


06. The Closing Walls

Music by Perez, Thorsen, Nordhus
Lyrics by Nordhus
Heading out in cold frustration
on yet another route
To chase your destination
always ready to pursue
Forced into the corner
you spill your fluids to the floor
As another filthy needle
has pierced through once more

It hurt me hard and I fell low
It hurt me hard
pulled me below
But they were many to pull, until my lungs were full

So vigorous upon a scale
It is what I descendant
To just the guilty, the wondered fail
Save me the lash upon the scale
It is what I descendant
To just the guilty, the wondered fail

Heading out in cold frustration
on yet another route
To chase your destination
always ready to pursue
In tears you spray the closing walls
with wrists open wide
In contrary to what you think
you cannot ever hide

Tears fall as you spray the walls

The walls are closing further in on me
Why can't these demons let me be
I feel so cold
I feel so sick


07. The Empty Room

Music by Hansen, Nordhus
Lyrics by Nordhus
Empty room
a lonely child
left to suffer

Empty room
and nightmare wild
Never forgotten

I never meant
to do you harm
And if I could reverse our story
I'd never dare

All alone
All alone
I think
and I shiver
What could have been
was never real
I think, and I think
and I shiver

Candles lit
and tearful eyes
But not dreaming
left to suffer

Candles lit
and strangled cries
Never forgotten

I never meant
to ruin it all
And if I could reverse our story
I'd never dare


08. Poisonous Tongues

Music by Hansen, K.R. Hagen, Thorsen, Nordhus
Lyrics by Thorsen
Dive into my arms now that all is forgotten
and walk with me hand in hand towards the end
No reason to attempt once you've been kissed
by poisonous tongues
I watch my hope
as it hangs pale from an old fragile rope

Dive into my arms now that all is forgotten
and walk with me hand in hand towards the end

Present fear is consequence
Smothered in my common sense
Will let our history be past
So we can sin together

Dive into my arms now that all is forgotten
and walk with me hand in hand

I'll leave it all behind
and descend into your arms

Despite my promise
Despite what I already said
I'll leave it all behind
and I'll fall into your arms

If you could only open up my eyes
and wipe them clean from all this malice
I could have bought some time to lace my damnation


09. As It Penetrates

Music by Hansen, K.R. Hagen, Thorsen, Nordhus
Lyrics by Thorsen, Nordhus
When your thoughts are carried
down the savage filthy lane
and winter flushes feelings down the drain
Let me be the one who pulls you towards the sun
Let me be the one
to chase your demons on the run

The future is memories to be shared
and we know those memories will remain
The more I try, the more I love
and the more I do makes the demons fly
and the day you die
will even make the flowers cry

Venomous feelings as your thoughts are dragged
through the smoke of life
As it penetrates it's time to cease the day
Intoxication to control the hate
Whatever comes will kill your faith
Leave it be
and pour the blame all over me


10. Shades Of Yesterday

Music by K.R. Hagen, Hansen, Thorsen, Nordhus
Lyrics by Thorsen, Nordhus
The shades of yesterday
Decayed by maturity
and these enchanting thoughts

Set your sails
Head towards your faith
All forbidden fruit tastes better
than the seeds of yesterday

The shades of nevermore
Depraved by reality
and these enchanting thoughts
are victims of myself

Would you like to annihilate?
Would you like to leave it all behind?

Temptation calls and all the doors are open wide
Vivid are the thoughts
vivid are the thoughts that I have tried to deny


Temptation calls and all the doors are open wide
Vivid are the thoughts
vivid are the thoughts that I have tried to deny
to deny in the past
Condemned
