Track Name: The Final Judgement
Enter the afterlife!


AFTER life I seal YOUR fate.
DIG Your grave
suffOcate
I AM no FAMILiar god
I GUARD the chambers where you rot!!

TRANSPORT your SOULS TO THEIR nest
It May BE fiNAL rest
IT MAY be HELL FIre AND pain
It may be something far more strange!


KEEP your EYES aimed AT the SKIES though
all STARS will FADE in TIME,
exISTance can NEVer DIE

PLAY the CARDS you HAVE been DEALT and
beLIEVE you HAVE the STRENGTH
to KNOW when the MOMent's RIGHT

Don't choose wrong!


AFTER life I seal YOUR fate.
DIG Your grave
suffOcate
I AM no FAMILiar god
I GUARD the chambers where you rot!!

TRANSPORT your SOULS TO THEIR nest
It May BE fiNAL rest
IT MAY be HELL FIre AND pain
It may be something far more strange!


KEEP your EYES aimed AT the SKIES though
all STARS will FADE in TIME,
exISTance can NEVer DIE

PLAY the CARDS you HAVE been DEALT and
beLIEVE you HAVE the STRENGTH
to KNOW when the MOMent's RIGHT


these eyes never close
piercing your soul
you're all hollow

its time to let go
follow me to the abyss!
embrace the fate
you have chosen
with every action in life!
Is!
Over!


black,
Cold domain
freezing plane
you'll remain
lost without escape!


punishment is paid in full
for your cruel and evil ways
now your soul
shall suffer eternally

hearts of purity set free
steel yourself for the unknown
come with me
or wander this void alone

corruption will take control
and it will be all you fault
play that cards you're dealt!!


The time of judgment is here
Repent!

Enter the afterlife!
Track Name: Scorch It To The Ground
The disease
We all breathe
Needs to be
Killed!
Forged
By the
Hands
Of
Pure deceit
paired with the corrupted wIlls of evil men!
Hidden walls
Time has brought
Standing tall
Still
I
Didn't
Build
Them!
Open up
It's time to swallow the pill of anarchy!

My freedom has beeeeeen
warped
beyond
recognition
I did not choose these chains!
one path remains! I must leave!

Static lines erased!
Our notions of structure
Written by the past
Dominion's roots dug up!
First find
where it began!
Next seek
out it's weakness!
Then leave it as ashes!
Scorch it to the ground!
Live life free of deceit!
First find where it began
(When this life keeps you tied up in
chains)
Next seek out its weakness
(we will never give in to defeat)
Then leave it as ashes
(there is only one path that remains)
scorch it to the ground!
(Live your life free of deceit!)

Ancient goals
Of the world
Running your
Life
Run
To the
Mountains
Goodbye to existence
under the Knife
Wield it on them!
Magnifying glass of tyranny
Burning me
Squinting you can finally start to see
True deceit
We're No longer
Blind too
This injustice
So now is
The time
For revolution

So blinded by denial that you can't
Seeeee
We're born as slaves
From the start
We count the days
Left to serve
Never meant to
Follow our hearts
Denied the life we deserve

Static lines erased!
Our notions of structure
Written by the past
Dominion's roots dug up!
First find
where it began!
Next seek
out it's weakness!
Then leave it as ashes!
Scorch it to the ground!
Live life free of deceit!
First find where it began
(When this life keeps you tied up in
chains)
Next seek out its weakness
(we will never give in to defeat)
Then leave it as ashes
(there is only one path that remains)
scorch it to the ground!
(Live your life free of deceit!)
Track Name: Hurt Them First
Don't ever trust anyone!
Dont hold your breath

Refine your mind to
Do your worst

You show them trust and
They'll show you death

Don't let them hurt you
Hurt them first

And take no prisoners


WHY DID
I let her

WEASEL
her filthy

WAY IN
to my Heart

And TURN it
to SHIT?


WHY WOULD
You promise

SOMONE
Forever

ONLY
to Reveal

you Never
meant it?

Why?!


I've made it this far!

I've carved my own way With the strength I gained from these scars!

But I'm
Holding back!

This hopeless angeeeer!

Not fully healed,
now I can feel a change in nat-ure!

I shall
Hold Back my wrath no more!!


No more
Regrets

Aaaaand!

No more
Prisoneeeers!!


Don't ever trust anyone!
They'll let you down

Don't let them fool you!
Like I did

I crossed that bridge and
They let me drown

Now don't forget the
Words I said


Don't ever trust anyone!
Dont hold your breath

Refine your mind to
Do your worst

You show them trust and
They will show you death

Don't let them hurt you
Hurt them first!


I need to!
Live life!
on my own!

Not isolated but depending on

NO ONE


I live as!
a forgotten
Soul. I wish this all could just change

But I guess That's! How! It! Goes!


Iii've
Struggled!
To hold this bond
Come to know it's all been in vain

I'm Ready To Let it all go

Let it go


I've let it go
Fuck you all
not gonna take this shit

Fine and I don't need you all
So what I'm over this

My
eyes are open now
I don't need anyone!


I've let it go
Fuck you all
not gonna take this shit

Fine and I don't need you all
So what I'm over this

My
eyes are open now
You can't trust anyone!

I don't need anyone!


Before I would have died for you
But Now I only want you to die

before I would have
Died for you!

But now I just want
You to fucking die!

Fucking die!
Track Name: Rhino-Shark
Rhino-Shark!
shall devour your souls and
bodies
you're all nothing but food

A shark
and rhinoceros
Breed to kill
every creature that moves

he starts
pissed as fuck and he's hungry for blood

Feeding time!


he arrives
from the sea
bound to instinctual need

plotting his murderous feast!


47,000 tons
He Will crush your skull just for fun
There's no place that you can hide
There's no time for you to run!

Go!


It shits out toxic waste
The single cause of global warming and the Black Plague!

It's favorite snack
is promnight dumpster babies
With KFC gravy.


First IT rips you in half
with it's teeth

Then YOU'RE swallowed Alive
You're dead meat!

at Least YOU'RE not alone
mountains of bodies
Some alive, some dead

All Digested slow
but the glass is half full.

Right with all your friends
Light this spliff and celebrate the end!


Zingoooooo!-(Quipps from Regular Show)


ISn't it OBvious
We're all fucked!

THERE's no denYing this truth

AIN'T no use FIGHTing the
Rhino-shark

WE'RE just proVIDing it Food


Suffer a watery doom
There's nothing left you can do
Can not avoid
He's come to destroy you!

It's The rhino-shark!


see the face of defeat
bow to the ultitimate beast

no escape
once you're in his sights you will all be deceased!
Track Name: Strength Over Strife
Dont lose Faith
dont lose hope
and don't break
under The weight of your life!

don'tWait
and don't choke
what it Takes
strength will destroy all your strife


pain, suffering,
necessary.
ways im insane
are too many.
ill
Bite the bullet if I wanna
make the cut.

brain is a slave
for the troubled
ways that I train.
i've enabled
my
self to be all I can be no matter what


Holding my tongue
(Take it back)
You pull me under but I
Swim to the sun
Emergence has begun


straining my eyes
(to the coast)
the dawn of liberation's
out of my sight
But
im prepared to fight!

grinding my teeth
(to the gums)
my mental fabric's tearing
back piece by piece
revealing what's beneath

clenching my fist
(knuckles white)
a raging wave will rise that
i must resist
And
I will conquer this!

Holding my tongue
(Take it back)
You pull me under but I
Swim to the sun
Emergence has begun


Keep moving.
don't give in. you
pay your dues.
remain
marching forward Always.

Keep proving
that you
have what it takes to survive
In this world
Endure.
Pick yourself up Or get the fuck out


dont lose Faith
dont lose hope
and don't break
under
The weight of your life!

don't Wait
and don't choke
what it Takes
strength will
destroy all your strife


Walls closing in
I'm worn away
defeated and fleein'
all my hope n' all my copin'
fade away into the gray n' black


no help shall come
You're alone
you are put to the test

if theres
no more hope
make your own
Stand up and raise your fist


Keep moving.
don't give in. you
pay your dues.
remain
marching forward Always.

Keep proving
that you
have what it takes to survive
In this world
Endure.
Pick yourself up Or get the fuck out
