Track Name: Survivor
I've still got something left to prove. I've been tested by the elements of life. But here I stand determined and proud. Through personal sacrifice and strength, I will overcome any obstacles you put in my way. Survivor. Nothing will hold me down. I am a survivor. Nothing will break me. I have come to face my fears. I don't blame anyone for my struggle. This affliction is my own. These wounds tell my story. I'd give anything to taste this freedom. I'll break down all walls that hold me in. Stand in my way and I will bleed you dry. I expect nothing for free. I've built a life on hardship. But I'll never settle for less than what I am. I've had my heart ripped out, and my dreams taken from me. I have been abandoned by everyone including friends and family. The only thing that is constant are my enemies. I rely on no one. Survivor. I've still got something left to prove. But here I stand determined and proud. I have come to face my fears. I don't blame anyone for my struggle. This affliction is my own. These wounds tell my story. Stand in my way. I will bleed you dry.
Track Name: Your Body is My Canvas
An artist's vision of the perfect specimen. What beauty this eye holds. There is no point to struggle. The air runs from your veins as the cease to flow. Feel the wire tighten as the darkness settle in. And there is no escape. This illusion is real. You have an audience of one. Play the victim well for there is no encore. This is hell and I am the devil. A fragile mind with a blackened heart. Ironic I now hold your life in hateful hands. Your seductive lips lay in a jar marked lust. Your lying tongue beside it in deception. Such a tragedy as you manipulated and pulled on the strings of my heart. Die bitch die. With each cut I paint my bloody masterpiece. Each slice a reminder of my hate. Let me be clear this isn't about revenge. This is about destruction. About the beauty I carve with my hands. There is no escape. This illusion is real. Play the victim well for there is no encore. This is hell and I am the devil. Forever you are mine.
Track Name: Lessons in Misanthropy
I can no longer stand this world. Overrun with the weak. Government has failed us. Religion is a lie. So is your life. Blind leads the blind. Corruption fueled by greed. We are in need of a cleansing. It's time to watch this world burn. Join us now, in a revolution. This is call to arms. We will rip apart your system. Tearing at the seams. You will not hide. The shroud has been lifted. We see your lies masked with a fake smile. I will not be deceived. This is not an opinion. This is absolution. You are everything I hate. I can't help but despise. This isn't arrogance, you're just a disgrace. You are everything I hate. Everything you believe in is pathetic and weak. You should be ashamed of what you are. Fuck your life. You hold no weight in this world. I see no value in what you are. Fuck your life.
Track Name: Visions
The footsteps before me have been washed away. The path behind me has faded. I have lost my sense of direction and purpose. My mind is a cage. These thoughts have become clouded. Clinging to memories I search for reality. As I close my eyes, the haunting visions appear. Real and true. Is this past or future? Trembling I witness my own horrors. Facing the internal fears. What terrible things burden my heart and mind. Do I still have the power to choose? Or am I already damned. Forsaken by a god that does not exist. In this hour of truth I will show you the evil that men can do. The future is mine to create, but the past is not yours to destroy. I possess the strength, the strength to change. I refuse to give into temptation. I don't walk the path of the righteous man. I was baptized in sin. I don't hide behind misguided morals or displace the consequence of my actions. The future is mine to create. The past is not yours to destroy. Here I lie, in my early grave.
Track Name: The Turning of Tides
I blame myself for trying to see the best in you. You can't help but let me down. I finally see the truth. I fear my shadow and hate this empty reflection. Trapped between guilt and regret, pain is a welcome sensation to this nightmare I live. I blame myself for trying to see the best in you. You can't help but let me down. I finally see the truth. There is only solution. To swallow this barrel and pull the trigger. The emptiness of this room echoes the sounds of failure. The silence and darkness embrace me in my tomb. My soul once burned with desire and passion. Now such arson is blasphemy. Cold and numb, incapable of feeling anything. Looking inward brings disgust. An overwhelming state of apathy is my only safety. I am, I am lost. I won't, I won't be saved. Self absorbed, self inflicted. Don't pity the coward I have become. I feel the guilt begin to strangle as the blood slows in these rusted veins. There is only one solution, to pull the fucking trigger. As I will never escape my fate. Deliverance is a luxury for fools. Now to cheat life in one last breath. This is the end. This is my end. You'll never haunt me again.
