01. Muramasa

Music by Periphery
Lyrics by Spencer Sotelo
Somewhere in time, we welcomed in the fall. But
in the distance we can see, shining clear, our
demise to be. We're not listening to ourselves.

You ask these questions in subconsciousness,
but still we choose to deny the flood surrounding
nations. Wake up! The water is rising now. We
are the universe inside of you waiting patiently.

All the world by a thread? Distance the lies that
are sold. They will not justify the pain. They will
not live to see the day.


02. Have A Blast

Music by Periphery
Lyrics by Spencer Sotelo
Caught in the mundane. The day to day, it traps us so
tightly. Escape the cubicle cell enslaving time of the
resident slave. Just another clone stamped in the
system who cannot think for yourself.

It's raining pens and staples on the prisoner
questioning our real purpose. Bury your sense of worth
beneath the desk you call your home.

Consistent overflowing with no way out. Now you're
always entertaining thoughts meandering. Ambition
slowly rolling, steady, downhill. A puppet never
disobeying the strings attached from hands to toes.
from head to fucking toes.

And it's the thrill of life that enables us to flow. Locked
in the spirit's line, souls entwine, to journey on as one.
I guess it's the fear of all that keeps us on the road.
Locked in the spirit's line, souls entwine, to journey on
as one.

Behold our creation... A walking dead. Step back and
realize what you are fed. Escape the mortal mentality.
It's a lesson that can't be ignored for long. My
destination lies within the song.

Blistering reality. Imagining a world in limelight. Never
will it be out of my reach. I've heard the lies a million
times, but did it ever steal from my soul? Bleeding from
the lungs, I see, a life complete above the darkest hole.

And it's the thrill of life that enables us to flow. Locked
in the spirit's line, souls entwine, to journey on as one.

A world so masochistic. Envious, broken system. The
infant braving infested waters, collecting prominent
rage. Torment in reality, for I leave it.


03. Facepalm Mute

Music by Periphery
Lyrics by Spencer Sotelo
Connect these signs. The evidence will
lend itself to be more than just a lie. I'm
not asking much, just a simple request
that you think for yourself, once in this
goddamn life. Fuck!

Forward. The violent state of mind
obsolete and taking the back seat. Reach
for the stars, control the fucking skies.
Can you silence your opinion of what I'm
about to say? Go on and let the mind
perceive.

Neglect the sense of ignorance to alter
life. Embrace the beauty from inside.

WE ARE ONE.
We are the strength of the universe at
heart. Construct the light. Implore of the
energy, bestow the understanding.

Follow the scent of the sinners as the
body of our mind disintegrates. Forever is
the course upon your plate. Don't ever
ask if we consume the blood and hate.
Repeat this life if you will, but don't count
on forgiveness from the filthy swine.

Here we stand at the threshold of
paradise, stealing a new world. I never
would have thought our place in history
would come to this, but we are infinite.

WE ARE ONE.
Neglect the sense of ignorance to alter
life. Embrace the beauty from inside.

WE ARE ONE.
We are the strength of the universe at
heart. Construct the light. Implore of the
energy, bestow the understanding.

WE ARE ONE.
We are the strength of the universe at
heart. Construct the light. Implore of the
energy, bestow the understanding.


04. Ji

Music by Periphery
Lyrics by Spencer Sotelo
A race suppressed by oath and seal. The
ancient tribe, it groans. This cold life
released us from the physical plane of the
human race. Closing the lines. Pave the
way, to destroy the light of their day.
Disgusting, thriving on the sun. Teeth they
grind, waiting for the planets to align. Take
back what belongs to the dominant being.
Congregate spilling blood.

We are the dark, that feed upon the living in
solid shadow. Conquer the earth, and bleed
the carbon masses in solar shadows.

As the cool wind blows, feel the ice grazing
over skin. On a chilled horizon, rides the
destiny of our poor and foolish kind.

From the sun into the deep, we go. Leaving
all known from above this lightless world. The
humans sleep, while violently commanding
"darkness flee the dream." Forboding waves,
unclear, crash on seas. Drawing night.

Dimensions collide, while the creature
resides inside of us all. There's something
evil pulsing to life that has been repressed by
civil tides. Open the barrier lines. A race
suppressed by their repeal. The ancient tribe
still groans. Emotion receding as the beast
grows. We boast the dark, unholy, presence
abound.

We are the darkness around.


05. Scarlet

Music by Periphery
Lyrics by Spencer Sotelo
So many reasons why one should never
entertain the taste of the red. A cry for a life
of innocence escapes her. So repent, and
go running back to kill because it might
make it easier. It's the scent of fear that
keeps you chained down to the ritual.
Adhere. You're a slave born into a dark
world of deceit. A slave that's longing for a
retreat.

Learning to love a disaster. Direct your
soul in the essence of hate to draw the
blood of the master. Flee. The stains on
your wings now carry the free.

Selfishly embrace the glory vengeance
brings. Hold courage tight. Illuminate the
night. Punishment! An eye for an eye, a
knife for the wicked. Just the sight of the
organization burning to ashes, could put a
smile on her face. The torture ends within
this wretched place. Oh please forgive
what I've become.

Learning to love a disaster. Direct your
soul in the essence of hate to draw the
blood of the master. Flee. The stains on
your wings now carry the gold seal
extracted from the omen's life. One steady
hand in victory. Darkness weeps as love
enfolds under a pure and crescent night.
Born from the eye into the light.

So many reasons why one should never
entertain the taste of scarlet.

So many reasons why one should never
entertain a taste of the red. A cry for a life
of innocence escapes her.

Learning to love a disaster. Direct your
soul in the essence of hate to draw the
blood of the master. Flee. The stains on
your wings now carry the free.


06. Luck As A Constant

Music by Periphery
Lyrics by Spencer Sotelo
Staring up at the ceiling, while I'm falling into
the flames. Something is gnawing my shoulder
and scarring this moment into my memory
frame.

The fathers speak, but might as well be
castrated. It feels so good from where I stand.
The one abstaining from all human needs and
pleasantries, is the one I never will be.

Collecting through the sheet,s a sense of
power filling me, and I will never let go. I'm
never letting go. Bending will of man and the
hearts of the gods. Shut the fuck up and let us
live a life we can call our own. Leave me alone.

If you love the guilt, then let it die. A life kept so
clean, will measure the price of misery. If you
love the guilt, then let it die. In silence we will
remain.

If you love the guilt, then let it die. A life kept so
clean, will measure the price of misery.

But manifest a taste of paradise, and surely
you'll see the sin inside of me.


07. Ragnarok

Music by Periphery
Lyrics by Spencer Sotelo
Forty days and nights I've spent alone. The shadow
hungry angel inside of me grows cold. Bloodshed
on my mind. A slave to these walls. Get away from
the life sucking call. Set me free.

Grant a pardon for the meddling soul. The lives of
the fallen deserve to take the spirits toll. Within the
asylum of a guilty fucking conscience I feel the
presence of insanity creep up my spine - to lock me
away in this hell.

Death has made its abode on my shoulders. It
clings to the palm of my hand eternally. Within
ascendance I shall relive the slaughtering. You'll
sing to the dirt, praying for the break of dawn.

Night will bring the presence of a ravenous demon
setting out to terrify. Soul destructive like imploding
stars. There's nothing but the darkness to guide the
way. There's nothing left inside.

Scald the inside. Fold the endless search within
you. Scale the insight, for the day it lies before us.
Somewhere in time... Off in the distance we can
see, shining, clear, our demise to be. We're not
listening to ourselves.

Somewhere in time, we welcomed in the midnight
leave. But in the distance we can see, shining, clear,
our demise to be. We're not listening to ourselves.


08. The Gods Must Be Crazy!

Music by Periphery
Lyrics by Spencer Sotelo
Heart stop, and carry on through the light. Can
you tell me what I'm missing? This sleep sought
after twists the dagger in the question of what lies
within. So heart stop beating on through the night.
Give an escape for the blinded. Although I follow,
it seems to pass the time. I wait with certainly
inside this theory.

I hear them speak with tongues of fire, while
setting the heavens ablaze. Live a life high up on a
wire of fear.

It's not for me to say what you need to believe,
and I won't speak until it's over. It's not for anyone
to say what it is to perceive. Steadfast, wallow in
their punishment. Take pleasure in the sight.

False cries. Corrupting the soul of a saint and with
knowledge of gods we relate. Watch from afar,
dodging religious scars.

Disregard my existence? Don't ignore me!

Speak of forgiveness is sin? I bathe in your hatred
so putrid and crimson. Never an ounce, never an
inkling of repentance do I give. Throw it away. Piss
on the demons and their hypocrisy.

It's not for me to say what you need to believe,
and I won't speak until it's over. It's not for anyone
to say what it is to perceive. Steadfast, wallow in
their punishment. Take pleasure in the sight.


09. MAKE TOTAL DESTROY

Music by Periphery
Lyrics by Spencer Sotelo
Welcome to the truth; a life that's not
your own. Controlled by labor, printed
paper and corruptors of the world.
Synthetic lies collect our mind to the
beat. We've had the rug pulled from
under our feet.

Media terrorists thrive on deceit,
spoon-feeding bullshit served by elite
societies harnessing fear as a weapon.

The time has come for all to see the
men behind the curtain cast into
disease.

Take back the light. It's a dangerous
place we're headed for if we accept
defeat. Now we know it's a show they've
been running from below. Burn it down
until the ground beneath the faulty
entity is glistening under the wings of a
golden era. Listening to the hate
they've created inside us, we grow, as
we reduce their religion to bones. Yes,
we reduce them all to bones!

The time has come for all to see the
men behind the curtain writhe in self
defeat. When will the world seek truth
within? They eye in silence grants the
knowledge to begin.

Reverse what's lost. Awake the song
within you. Rejoice aloud. Let these
words imbue.

Shape the future. Sifting power back in
the hands of the common man. Give
them hell for existence, pouring blood
on the path they've set in stone, as we
reclaim our position to the throne. Yes,
we reduce them all to bones!


10. Erised

Music by Periphery
Lyrics by Spencer Sotelo
There's a vessel and it's sinking at sea.
An apparition that's beckoning me. As
the cold, dark night brings on the sweat,
I slowly drift away.

Stuck down in the bottom of the orange,
cylindrical state of mind. What are we
running from? There's a distant sound of
a melody. Release me from this plane.

All like to live; a sedative under the skin.
Bury it, carry the cure. Just let emotion
set devotion within your heart to collect
the debt we sow.

Step out from the moonlight like it's a
game we play. The checkerboard is
tainted. Drops of red will lead the way.

Black are the lies. Gold are the tongues
of the glorified. Command disease of the
body and mind.

Stuck down at the bottom of the orange
cylindrical state of mind. What are we
running from? There's a distant sound of
a melody. Release me from this plane.

A life to live; a sedative under the skin.
Bury it, carry the cure. Just let emotion
set devotion within your heart to collect
the debt we sow.

Collecting sanity. Simply ready for the
life that awaits your lead. There's a
distant sound of a melody, and I won't
leave this place.

12. Froggin Bullfish

Music by Periphery
Lyrics by Spencer Sotelo
Shut out from this ancient truth. We
are blind inside. Migrant souls from a
distant world? There's an absence of
knowledge.

Reaching out for the pulse of our own.
Now the time has come to awaken the
prophecy. Buried underneath the veil
of illusion. Given a life of freedom,
only to neglect what we should feel.
Tortured by negative consciousness.

Feeling our disorder hit the froggin'
wall. Escape some way... Awake!
Hallucinating desire.

Chase the obscene. Travel these
wonders far beyond. Burn down the
walls that bind you to this cage, or be
detained.

For once, a glimpse at freedom would
feel divine. A break from this feeble
old mind. My fucking mind!

Negative scenes are just the
projection of our own dark fear.
Playing the victim is not what will
bring us back to salvation. Back to
reality.

What is it they all seek? Be it the
wealth of the throne? Live your life as
a drone! Reaching out for the pulse of
our own.

So high... above what they all seen to
know. Subliminal signs; a message
that's unrefined. Soaring above what
they all seem to know. Someday replay
the purgatory life you lead.

Taste the obscene. Travel these
wonders far beyond. Burn down the
walls that bind you to this cage, or be
detained.


13. Mile Zero

Music by Periphery
Lyrics by Spencer Sotelo
It starts as one festering feeling.
The kind that cuts from the flesh
down to the soul. No way to make
amends for the time behind the
door. Street lights feed lies
straight to the mind of the wishful
wanderer. How could he give up?
No second chances to say
goodbye.

Wrapped in this cold, nostalgic
energy from cries of the ones who
are buried. Ascend beyond.

Life is ruthless and shot full of
pain. It lifts you up, leaves you out
in the rain, and it hurts just to
know that you're not coming back
again. I will miss you my friend.
Memories like a slug to the brain,
paint the walls with a love that will
stain the darkest of nights. You
left to join with the stars and I
cannot shake this off my chest.

In death we grieve until all have
transcended from this realm. In
time we will meet again.

Suddenly I can feel the connection
between dimension ties. Open gut
on the floor. Trembling down to
the core. What is this?

It's been a long ride without you. I'm
lost inside my own world. There's
not a single day where I've feigned
the acceptance, but it's a somber
stroll down this road that we call life.

The silence still is crawling out of my
sedated sight. How can I be free?

Wrapped in this cold nostalgic
energy from cries of the ones who
are buried. Ascend beyond.

Life is ruthless and shot full of pain.
It lifts you up, leaves you out in the
rain, and it hurts just to know that
you're not coming back again. I will
miss you my friend. Memories like a
slug to the brain, paint the walls with
a love that will stain the darkest of
nights. Left to journey alone, but I
can find my way back home.


14. Masamune

Music by Periphery
Lyrics by Spencer Sotelo
As I slip away... thoughts rushing through
me. Angelic call? Or a demon that's calling
my name? Enter the intrepid state. Enter
beyond what is seen to the spiritual stream
of the vacant.

Shot from the mind of the physical, leaving
flesh behind. Rejected by the holy gates. I
will not be directed! The course of ancient
power, it will follow. Fall with me.

Dark and grim for a memory. Measuring all
the glory as it seemed. Was it enough for
eternity? Foolish schemes for a destiny lined
with dreams all came crashing down on me.
What will become of the energy?

Cast away. I feel the heavens slowly turning
gray. Colors seem to fade. As the morning
star surrounds the angels sing.

Salvation is so far from unholy realms of the
filth infestation. Torture the life death-bound
in wretched ways. Repent or revenge?

There's no pardon for a meddling soul.
Somewhere in time we welcomed in the fall,
now in the distance I can see shining, clear,
our demise to be...

We're not listening to ourselves.

16. The Heretic Anthem

Music & lyrics by Slipknot
8, 7, 6, 6, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0

I'm a pop star threat, I'm not dead yet
I got a super dread bet with an angel drug head
Like a dead beat winner, wanna be a sinner
Idolized bang for the industry killer

Hideous man that you don't understand
Throw a suicide party and I'm guaranteed to fucking snap
It's evil sonic, it's pornoholic
Breakdowns, obscenities, it's all I wanna be

555, then I'm 666
If you're 555, then I'm 666
If you're 555, then I'm 666
What's it like to be a heretic?
If you're 555, then I'm 666
What's it like to be a heretic?

Everybody's so infatuated
Everybody's so completely sure of what we are
Everybody defamates from miles away
But face to face they haven't got a thing to say

I bleed for this and I bleed for you
Still you look in my face like I'm somebody new
Toy, nobody wants anything I've got
Well, because you're made of everything I'm not

555, then I'm 666
If you're 555, then I'm 666
If you're 555, then I'm 666
What's it like to be a heretic?
If you're 555, then I'm 666
What's it like to be a heretic?

Heretic

30 seconds, 16, 8, 4, lemme tell ya why
I haven't the slightest, I'm teaching your brightest
They're listening, clamoring
All the money in the world can't buy me

Go ahead, lie, tell me again how you're tortured
I wanna know how you followed your orders so well
You're full of shit
You had a dream but this ain't it

555, I'm 666
If you're 555, I'm 666
If you're 555, then I'm 666
If you're 555, then I'm 666

If you're 555, then I'm 666
What's it like to be a heretic?
If you're 555, then I'm 666
What's it like to be a heretic?

If you're 555, then I'm 666
What's it like to be a heretic?
If you're 555, then I'm 666
What's it like to be a heretic?

Heretic
