Track Name: Demoness
"Demoness"

Aside, the terrors of this life
My cries, forever silenced by your beauty
The fear that once consume my soul has left
And become a window of hope

You have the power to rid my soul
From these ever burning demons
You have the power to show me
The path to ever burning peace in life

[Chorus]
Oh sweet Demoness
Take my soul
Look into my eyes

I have been through hell
I've seen the bottom of the well of failure
You know of my desires
My fears, my flaws and failures

[Chorus]

Demoness, Save me

[Solo - Pevny]
[Solo - DeCicco]
Track Name: Powerless
"Powerless"

I breed the nurturing spirit
But fail to follow through
Attempts to soothe the souls of the tortured
Intentions still remain to break apart this torment
To kill what ruptures the insides

In this nightmare
I am not the victim
I am powerless

The mind can conjure actions
The body disobeys
As I am left with an empty heart

Bound down by this affliction
That holds none of my own
Weighed down by this anguish
Agony

[Solo - Pevny]
Track Name: Covetous
"Covetous"

I tear hope away
No time can bring to me
What I desire, What I want so
My sins cannot pay
I fall to an effortless
Icon of highest beauty
And I kiss her feet

With facility he taunts me
Burns my soul
With facility he taunts me
Eats me whole

This struggle tears at me
These aesthetics of pain
My own life laughs at me
I know not what I want
I fall to an effortless
Icon of highest beauty
And I kiss her feet

[Chorus]
THis man with flesh of gold
His ease burns my soul

I grasp onto hope
It burns endlessly
Desire runs through my veins
I wish for anything
My dreams torture me
I fall to my coveted
Icon of highest beauty
And I kiss her feet

[Chorus]
This man with flesh of gold
His ease burns my soul
Renders me anomalous
I am covetous

(Solo - Pevny)
(Solo - DeCicco)

[Chorus]

My dreams they torture me
Track Name: Beneath The Storm
Beneath The Storm

As I look at the moon's reflection in the ocean
I look up and see black on the horizon
In the distance, bolts of lightning flash before me
Just like my life, I see my past and my destiny

[Solo - DeCicco]

My destiny, beyond the waves I can see
Through tragedy, the end of this catastrophe
I can now finally breathe

My inspiration reflects through me
Imagination is running wildly

Passing time travels across my eyes
I have come to free my mind
Dazed I hear the sounds of the changing tide
I have come to free my mind

[Chorus]
No matter how bad the storm
Eventually it must clear

The sky vacant, the storm is left behind
But so much damage done
Gone, but still I wait for its return
For it still dwells in me

As I look at the moon's reflection in the ocean
I look up and see black on the horizon
In the distance, bolts of lightning flash before me
Just like my life, I see my past and my destiny
So you test me, I now see clearly
The will to live has set me free
So much your life must endure
Long beneath the storm
Track Name: Grace Denied
"Grace Denied"

My eyes are purified
Our world is terrorized
I feel the warm embrace
From my fall from grace
A light once full now fades
I've been unsanctified
I'm denied

I hear the chasm cry
Antagonizing me
The echoes begin to call my name
But I will never let it consume me

[Chorus]
These angels haunt me
They give me endless suffering
They refuse to bring me grace
They're trying to bring me to my grave

This curse within my life
Make me the next in line
To wander far and lost
Trapped between life and death

A dark eternity I will call my home
This dark eternity I will call my home

[Chorus]

Why do they preach us with life and they bring us death?

[Chorus]
Track Name: Illusionary
"Illusionary"
I am the flame that holds the key
To your escape
I am the truth, I am the lie
I am none but illusion

Maybe you'll suffer with me
Maybe you'll suffer without
In your head you will live in bliss
But outside you're destroying yourself

Can you taste the fear
Can you feel the pain
Can you hear the screams
Piercing through your veins

I am now your only friend
In this world of hate
I alone can ease your pain

[Chorus]
I'm the cancer, I consume
I'm the answer, impending doom
I've become a part of you
An escape from reality

You turn away, from the truth
You deny that I am you
I've become a part of you
An escape from reality

[Solo - DeCicco]
[Solo - Pevny]

[Chorus]
Track Name: Through Blackness and Silence
"Through Blackness and Silence"

[Chorus]
Through blackness and silence
From malice and violence
What has become of me
For me to feel I must bleed

Through blackness and silence
Questioning my existence
I am not alive
So lost an empty inside

This psychopathic blood
Flows through my veins
It pumps my heart
And it will drain

Am I insane?
Controlled and driven by my pain
Something in me destroyed
I need to fill this void

[Chorus]

Through addictions of lust
All perception is lost
Slowly losing my mind
I drift into the void

I need to break from this bind
I need to kill this bitter vice

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

(Through)
Blackness and silence
Track Name: Ambivalence
"Ambivalence"

Frustration builds up to the skies
Into your eyes, out of control
The sickness comes
To fight the blindness and the fear
To fight them one must fight himself

When will you know when you find yourself
You'll keep searching all your life

You've found the truth that you've been searching for
Yet anger tears at your mind
Regrets overtake your life
Regrets become your fears

This cycle rips into your skull
THis cycle of uncertainty
This cycle tears into your heart
This cycle of misery

[Chorus]
Ambivalence, set you free
Ambivalence, on your knees

Internal battles represent
The will to know yourself
Blindness to the inside
Has not the bliss of ignorance

(Solo - DeCicco)
(Solo - Pevny)

[Chorus]
Ambivalence will set you free
Ambivalence, bring you to your knees
(When will you know when you find yourself?)
Ambivalence will set you free
(When will you know when you find yourself?)
Ambivalence, bring you to your knees
Track Name: Revival
"Revival"

Waking up the beast
That has thrown me under
Fearing I will fall
Into the arms of emptiness

This was built upon
My will to not conform
Breathing in the air
To keep my faith alive

[Chorus]
Waited for so long, to bring back what's gone

These demons come
In masses tearing me up
Remove them from within

[Chorus]

(Solo - Pevny)

The hands of fate
Have brought this game upon me
I have no choice
I will still remain alive
The hands of fate
Have brought this curse upon me
I have the strength
I will keep my will alive

Revive me

(Solo - DeCicco)
