Track Name: A Life Of Sorrow
We will travel a long road together
Under the warmth of the sun
Times like these we will always remember
Once our work is done

Using reflection of direction
So that in life we see the truth
Over fields we're running away
From all the problems we've been through

Using reflection of direction
So that in life we see the truth
Over fields we're running away
From all the problems we've been through

We found an exit
Where you don't have to die
To escape from the sorrows of life
We found a path that is there for all of us
A path of truth so that we can survive

Everyday is the same as the next one
Time to break through the cycle of the dead
Hear the heartbeat, hear the drum
Hear the voices in your head,
Hear the Gods from across the sea,
Calling you from so far away,
Hear the ancient music of history,
Putting darkness in its place

Using reflection of direction
So that in life we see the truth
Over fields we're running away
From all the problems we've been through

Using reflection of direction
So that in life we see the truth
Over fields we're running away
From all the problems we've been through

We found an exit
Where you don't have to die
To escape from the sorrows of life
We found a path that is there for all of us
A path of truth so that we can survive

We will survive
We will survive
We will survive
We will survive
We will survive
We will survive
Track Name: Devolution
Sometimes you have to wonder,
What are we gonna do
Everyday we're falling further from the sky
Help from far away is almost out of sight
Oh just listen to me now
We must escape from this somehow
We must get out of this decay
There's no solution
This is our famous devolution

Sometimes you have to wonder,
What are we gonna do
Everyday we're falling further from the sky
Help from far away is almost out of sight
Just listen to me now
We must escape from this somehow
We must get out of this decay
There's no solution
This is our famous devolution

I'll take your hand and we will run
Far from these shadows of the sun
We will keep running even when we meet our death
This is our life, this is our test

Just listen to me now
We must escape from this somehow
We must get out of this decay
There's no solution
This is our famous devolution
Track Name: Chased
Where you gonna go, will you let them get you?
Are you gonna run, or just let them catch you?
You'd better hide or you won't stay alive,
They're coming to get you, they're coming to get you
Watch out in the darkness
You are being watched so beware
You better keep running and don't look back
Because they're coming to get you
They're coming to get you

Oh we are so good at acting so innocent
But you do not know what is our real side
You are so hidden from what is the truth
When will you finally realize?

Where you gonna go, will you let them get you?
You gonna run, or just let them catch you?
You'd better hide or you won't stay alive,
They're coming to get you, they're coming to get you
Watch out in the darkness
You are being watched so beware
You better keep running and don't look back
Because they're coming to get you
They're coming to get you

This is our final hour of the day
Tomorrow will be different than yesterday
We'll witness the flowers,
They're springing to life
And then we'll be taken
We'll happily die
They're coming to get you
They'll get me as well
And everybody will leave from this hell
We're carried away to a beautiful place
Where all of this terror has been washed away

What you gonna do? just let them kill you?
How is that any different than suicide?
Do you wanna live, or do you wanna die?
They're coming to get you, they're coming to get you
Beware of the dogs!
They are watching you, so beware
You'd better keep running and don't look back
Because they're coming to get you,
They're coming to get you!

Oh we are so good at acting so innocent
But you do not know what is our real side
You are so hidden from what is the truth
When will you finally realize?They're coming to get you

This is our final hour of the day
Tomorrow will be different than yesterday
We'll witness the flowers,
They're springing to life
And then we'll be taken
We'll happily die
They're coming to get you
They'll get me as well
And everybody will leave from this hell
We're carried away to a beautiful place
Where all of this terror has been washed away
Track Name: Decomposition
Decomposing body it is hanging on the wall
Clothes are torn apart
He is standing up so high and tall
And he's watching with his fearful eyes
And sees me take my knife
To remove his very life
Decomposing body it is lying in the fridge
While the last one was an adult
And this time it is a kid
And a horrid look of terror
It is trapped upon his face
What a life of human waste

Decomposing body it is hanging on the wall
Clothes are torn apart
He is standing up so high and tall
And he's watching with his fearful eyes
And sees me take my knife
To remove his very life
Decomposing body it is lying in the fridge
While the last one was an adult
And this time it is a kid
And a horrid look of terror
It is trapped upon his face
What a life of human waste

His life meant nothing to me
Doesn't exist in my mind
You will be destroyed
Before I take my life

His life meant nothing to me
He doesn't exist in my mind
You will be destroyed
Before I take my life

His life meant nothing to me
Doesn't exist in my mind
You will be destroyed
Before I take my life
Track Name: Time To Celebrate
The mind is clear,
It's finally here,
The time to celebrate
Let everybody join in as we ride to meet our fate
The darkness and confusion we have known for many years
Being taken from the universe
Along with all our fears

The nightmares we recall while lying fearful in the dark
The dreading of a school we hated from the very start
The demons that attacked us as we lie awake in bed
Have finally flown away back to their masters minds instead

The king and queen have traveled many miles to this sight
The shadows of the world have faded for this very night
The jokers and the pipers and the band upon the ground
Lots of dancing, lots of laughter
This is perfect what we've found
There's stories to be told and lots of poetry as well
We get to understand that we have got here
Through our inner hell
The children and the fireworks
Joyful people everywhere
Set aside your life and join us
Everyone you know is here

The courses and the manuals and the lessons we've been fed
Have still provided nothing but confusion for the head
And everybody thinks that they are right and know the way
Forget it all, it's finally here, the time to celebrate

The king and queen have traveled many miles to this sight
The shadows of the world have faded for this very night
The jokers and the pipers and the band upon the ground
Lots of dancing, lots of laughter
This is perfect what we've found
There's stories to be told and lots of poetry as well
We get to understand that we have got here
Through our inner hell
The children and the fireworks
Joyful people everywhere
Set aside your life and join us
Everyone you know is here
Track Name: The Day That Hannah Died
The silver blade shone brightly
As it drove into her chest
The screams and blood was beautiful
A sight I won't forget
It seemed to take forever
For her terror to subside
I never will forget
The day that Hannah died
There was no choice it had to be
There was no other way
Through destruction, death, and murder
Came the light of day
What I did was necessary
I needed to transform
It felt so good to actually see her beautifully deformed
I dragged her empty body
From her bed into the kitchen
I took off all her clothes
That were drenched in blood and dripping
And kneeling down upon the floor
Cutting her a little more
Hoping I would not be killed for murdering the law
I dug a grave for Hannah
That would look out to the sea
I told her we will meet again
When both of us are free
Apologizing for the deeds I did was genuine
Regretting it forever and hiding it within
I feel a tear upon my face
Comprehension of deceased
I give the cross a little kiss
And pray she'll rest in peace
I stand up straight all dressed in black
Reflecting how I'm feeling
Plastic smile upon my face
So no one knows what I'm concealing
A deadly silence felt
Especially when I'm all alone
Forever she'll be sleeping far away beneath a stone
The final glimpse I caught
Of her macabre and rotting corpse
Forever haunts my dreams
And kills my other foolish thoughts
Annihilation of my happy memories left behind
Before I became a lunatic
Within my very mind
Every night and every morning
Angels hear me weep
To relieve me of my suffering
To cause eternal sleep.
