Track Name: The Arsonist is King
Strike a match
There's so much to burn
Everything must turn to ash
Come smoldering remains

Purifying, let history burn
Devoured by flames, nothing remains

A world in fire
Through the smoke we see a way
A path to a clean start
Where nothing is stained

The arsonist is king
Salvation by pure fire

Strike a match
There's so much to burn
Everything must turn to ash
Come smoldering remains

The arsonist is king
Salvation by pure fire

Purifying, let history burn
Devoured by flames, nothing remains

It's all devoured by flames
Nothing remains
Track Name: Broken Years
The shapes of faith dissolve
It's lunacy you follow
Unleashing your decree
With righteous certainty
Try but can't deny
The cold, hard facts of life
An apostle of good in a world so misunderstood

Challenge the truth, again and again
Disregard and ignore, bend and rearrange

Slapped in the face, time and again
Beat you and brake you, fucked by reality

Ideals replaced by bitter anger
After the years have made you worn
Your ugliness now shows

Truth is the enemy
What good is a sermon
When you're preaching a lie

The stream of shit runs through the inside
Where cold indifference is born
Your hatred is coming out

Truth is the fucking enemy
What good is a sermon
When you're preaching a lie

Slapped in the face, time and again
Fucked by reality
Track Name: No One Gets Out Alive
Day by day
Wasting time
Victim of my own design
No way out
Life's a trap
Fire dying
Tired, sapped

There's no escape
No one gets out alive

Another year
Pissed away
Content with the price I pay
Time is up
The trap has closed
A handcuffed life
Is what I chose
Track Name: Tattooed Corpse
Put an image on display
Your vanity is staggering
Narcissistic
Compulsively
Adorn your hide
With the fashion of today
As death creeps closer

Out of your league
Out of your mind
Your lifestyle is uninteresting
Just who are you trying to please?
Nobody really cares who you are

Meaningless life
Nothing in the end
Just a tattooed corpse
Track Name: Progressive Obsessive
Ripping through my inside
Implanting their shit in my brain
To cure my disease and put my mind at ease

Search for what lies hidden
Behind decades of anguish and fright
They have a theory of what's been done to me

Look into the past, picture the abuse
Done unto the child
Play their game, create a memory
Imagination runs wild

Hesitation proof of what I don't wanna see
Listen to the voice
Drugged and drained, fuck it up some more
Raped on the psychiatrist's couch

Session now begins, open up and let me in
Mind wandering free, victimized to be

Look into the past, picture the abuse
Done unto the child
Play their game, create a memory
Imagination runs wild

Hesitation proof of what I don't wanna see
Listen to the voice
Drugged and drained, fuck it up some more
Raped on the psychiatrist's couch

Progressive obsessive
Track Name: The Condemnation
Ludicrous, a wave of lunacy
Throwing bolts at the sky
A pointless agenda, a waste of the time
Stuck in a place where emotions will die
Behold the cancerous fate
Streaming from the screen
A critical state, an axis of despair
Their futile future destroying the dream

Condemned, apathy reigns
Suspended they lie in wait
To be one with the void

Lethargic, a slumbering league
Dozing of into the deep
A stagnated life, a spiral going down
Vertiginous swirl that puts them to sleep
Behold the ludicrous parade
Throwing air at nothing at all
De-generated, devoid of life
A generation transfixed waiting to fall

Rows upon rows of feeble creatures
Embracing the damnation
Line after line of empty faces
Awaiting the condemnation

Condemned, apathy reigns
Suspended they lie in wait
To be one with the void

The condemnation of this lost generation
In apathy they rot
