Track Name: Genesis//Chapter XI
Appealed by the light above,
Through the surface I've reached the air
Gather survivors
Gather all, strangers
We will stand on top of the world

No vertigo
Everything below this scaffold is dead to me now

I survived your trials, know my faith is real
So no more cleansing, Shinar is rising

Erase who we are in your selfish act of fear
Erase who we are
When will you take my life at last?

Meet us at the top
This tower will reach holy heavens
We don't fear the drop
Your light is so welcoming

Blackout
What?

I left my past to die so today I could pave my way to your golden kingdom
I bowed down to your call miserable at all
Worshipped your damned crown, how dare you tear me down?

Foundations fall apart, find shelter he betrayed us!
Counfound believers
Counfound all childrens
Scattered all around the world

Erase who we are in your selfish act of fear
Erase who we are
When will you take my life at last?

No "one last kiss", no "one last goodbye"
Full-fledged potential straight to nothingness
Confusion runs through every mind,
Left with no reason to beg for your forgiveness

You filled our lungs with bleach and ripped our tongues out.
Frightened king.

Erase who we are in your selfish act of fear
Erase who we are
When will you take my life at last?

Erase who we are in your selfish act of fear
Erase who we are
When will you take our lives at last?

Confusion runs through every mind,
Left with no reason to beg for your forgiveness
Track Name: Catharsist
Bring me a war that's worth fighting for
Devotion is my only weapon here
Fear no sacrifice
You'll never know hell like I do

Lick my wounds, sow my wounds
You'll never bring me down
I fight my way through it all
Hunt life down
It's not about survival, just seize what you're worth

How can you paint your heart of such black and blue when I'm the one falling down again?

Bleed me dry of effort
Fill me up with glory
Bleed me dry of effort
Fill me up with glory

Sick of being the hand that feeds you
It's time for you to see this one through
No pain, no gain, what a shame
You'll always stay the same

Lick my wounds, sow my wounds
You'll never bring me down
I fight my way through it all
Hunt life down
It's not about survival, just seize what you're worth

How can you paint your heart of such black and blue when I'm the one falling down again?
How can you paint your heart of such black and blue when I'm the one falling down again?

Stand
Stand your ground
Stand
Stand your ground to take what you deserve

Where's your pride?
Where's your pride?
Where is your fucking pride?

How can you paint your heart of such black and blue when I'm the one falling down again?
How can you paint your heart of such black and blue when I'm the one falling down again?

It's in the will to grow that the solution blooms
Track Name: Hollow
I am hollow
As empty as the night sky in this city
Wasted time dug a hole inside of me
And I just can't take anything back anymore

I can't come to be myself anymore
I'd make it through it all but without you it makes no sense to me
Don't bother how I am, I can't be the same
So please kill this one last spark and let me rot in the dark.

No more comfort, no more fire
Lost in space and sound, this loneliness is haunting me

Hollow, as lonely as my eyes into yours
Tell me, will I ever be worth your time?

Stranded inside my head, the void is clawing its way to my chest
I need an anchor to keep me from drifting away tonight

I can't come to be myself anymore
I'd make it through it all but without you it makes no sense to me
Don't bother how I am, I can't be the same
So please kill this one last spark and let me rot in the dark.
Let go

Though my life is so empty of your presence
My mind is filled with the thought of you, the touch of you

I can't come to be myself anymore
I'd make it through it all but without you it makes no sense to me
Don't bother how I am, I can't be the same
So please kill this one last spark and let me rot in the dark.

No more comfort, no more fire
Track Name: Gemini Tango
Long enough you had your plan on display
You had me blindfolded for the sake of your dramatic play

Seeing you cover up your tracks was no easy thing to let go
I denied everything, I denied all about it
I've always been one to wear my heart on my sleeve
and you one to use it for your tricks up in yours

Isn't it ironic how who I took shots for was the one to shoot me dead?
Every time you opened your filthy mouth
I should have known the truth was so easy to bend.

I denied everything, I denied all about it

When lips start to leave frostbites like winter,
feelings are ought to wither for one another.

My head mangled by treachery
I've freed myself from slavery
High on lust
You've earned my disgust
My head mangled by treachery
I've freed myself from slavery
High on lust
You've earned my disgust

Smothering in disbelief, only hell could take away my grief

Your words were a plague that made me sick to death
But I've found my cure and it tastes oh so sweet

Seeing you cover up your tracks was no easy thing to let go
I denied everything, I denied all about it
I've always been one to wear my heart on my sleeve (on my sleeve)
and you one to use it for your tricks up in yours

Hypocrite
You've crossed the line for way too long
Your soul is pitch-black
You're fucking dead to me
Hypocrite
You've crossed the line for way too long

Seeing you cover up your tracks was no easy thing to let go
I denied everything, I denied all about it
I've always been one to wear my heart on my sleeve
and you one to use it for your tricks up in yours
Track Name: Dusk Of Deneb
What the fuck do you do when your reality becomes a memory?
A permanent lost tied to a restless grief
Why did you have to go?

I couldn't bare to see you decay the way you did
The last pictures of you I'm keeping in my head had to be of that faithful smile
I'll forever curse this ruthless sickness

As the smoke of my cigarettes reminds me of you
I'm hoping it burns my lungs the way it burned you out

Why feel alive when your purpose is empty? So empty.
The more space between us the less I can breathe. I can't breathe.
I still need you to show me the way home and tell me
why feel alive when your purpose is empty. So empty.

You'll live through our memories.
You'll live through our memories.
Bracing myself everyday to cherish something that hurts so much.

I'll admit thinking about you dying again once all who carries you passes away kills me.
Oh how it kills me.

Why feel alive when your purpose is empty? So empty.
The more space between us the less I can breathe. I can't breathe.
I still need you to show me the way home and tell me
why feel alive when your purpose is empty. So empty.

I can't seem to have faith in anything,
but I wish heaven was true just to know you're safe.
I can't seem to have faith in anything,
but I wish heaven was true just to know you're still out there somewhere.

I can't seem to have faith in anything,
but I wish heaven was true just to know you still exist.

Why feel alive when your purpose is empty? So empty.
The more space between us the less I can breathe. I can't breathe.
I still need you to show me the way home and tell me
why feel alive when your purpose is empty. So empty.
