Track Name: Trial (Intro)
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Crypt[ography]
Change pace to save face, there was never a point anyway.
Bleed us all dry and for what, a fucking way to escape from your own wretched fate?
What is this? A goddamn alibi?
Or somewhere just to lay your head at night?
This isn’t a mistake it’s the goddamned answer.
Change or not we’re done with your shit
So just find a fucking coffin and lay down bitch.
This isn’t a mistake it’s the goddamned answer.
Change pace to save face, there was never a point anyway.
Bleed us all dry and for what, a fucking way to escape from your own wretched fate?
An alibi, Or somewhere to lay your head at night?
You bite our hands too often to be fed anymore
Change or not we’re done with your shit
Lay the fuck down bitch.
What is this? A goddamn alibi?
Or somewhere just to lay your head at night?
This isn’t a mistake it’s the goddamned answer.
Change or not we’re done with your shit
So just find a fucking coffin and lay down bitch.
Track Name: Abrogate
Let the light touch you
Pleading to forget but history forbids it
The light erases all in its glow

Let it envelop you
Let my mind rest again
Let it envelop you
Let my mind rest again

Let the light envelop you
And let me be at peace
End this reign of torture
Pleading to forget
But history forbids it
Forbids it
Track Name: Disturbance
Just let me scream into the void 'cause no one's listening
should I unleash the beast or just bide my time?
Or bite my tongue?
Sometimes I think there's something wrong with me
open my eyes to find there's something wrong with humanity

It's almost inexplicable, the disrespect that mounts
In this game of life we play, we thrive to tear each other down
This coexistence, the balance that holds us together
Rips us apart tonight as the clouds part and lightning strikes
The heavens open up, the angels of vengeance are upon us

And now we're all victims of this disturbance
Exposing all our failures for the world to see

Stare in awe and bow down at the sight of its dark aura
Built of all our sin and set on a path to destruction again

Just let me scream into the void 'cause no one's listening
should I unleash the beast or just bide my time?
Sometimes I think there's something wrong with me
But there's something wrong with humanity
Sometimes I think there's something wrong with me
But there's something wrong with everything
Track Name: Deviate
You came in and fixed it all,
The seams were weak but it held together.
It held together for a while.

I’m not a tyrant,
I just know what I want.
There was nothing left to do
But watch it fall apart again.
One day it will be better,
But for now it’s a goddamned nightmare.

Expecting failure is second nature,
But it only sets us up for something better.
Let’s not relinquish who we are for the ones that don’t care at all.
Climbing towards the horizon, we deviate.
Rising up with passion, we deny this fate.

One day it will be better,
But for now it’s a goddamned nightmare.
Climb towards the horizon and deviate.
Rise up with passion and deny this fate.

You came in and fixed it all,
The seams were weak but it held together.
It held together.
I’m not a tyrant,
I just know what I want.
There was nothing left to do
But watch it fall apart again.
Track Name: Insubordinate
If I am to be crucified for what I say and do,
Apparently I won't be the first
The example I have made of you,
Is the ignorance of all humanity
I speak the truth yet all I get right back from you is lies
The stench of deceit flows from your mouth and feeds the ears
Of the oblivious population

Blood is red, bruises are blue
This is what you'll look like when I'm done with you

You're stuck here making the same mistakes over and over again
Why can't you see this isn't who you were meant to be?
We're fucking over it

Floating through the depths of your mind
This disease gripping you tightly by the throat
It knows who you are now
Just an insubordinate waste of life
Careening down in this spiral of anguish
Hear me now, your hourglass lies at your feet
Just enough time to stop and think,
What have I done?
Track Name: Deserving (Instrumental)
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Retribution
This is not the war that you wanted
But it's the one you've earned
When will you learn?
Is that too much to ask for?
Or is this just my retribution?

There is no silence in this house anymore
Cries of lies and blasphemous rites
Fill the halls of my sanity
Razors kiss the pain away
Pearly rows of sweet escape
The sorrow flows and begs to stay
Welcome to hell and here's your seat

This is not the war that you wanted
But it's the one you've earned
When will you learn?
Is that too much to ask for?
Or is this just my retribution?

I swear to you, you have become my last regret

There is no silence in this house anymore
All that once was is lost and destroyed
There is no silence in this house anymore

This is not the war that you wanted
But it's the one you've earned
When will you learn?
Is that too much to ask for?
Or is this just my retribution?
When will you learn?
Is that too much to ask for?
Or is this just my retribution?
This is not the war that you wanted
But it's the one you've earned
Track Name: Unneeded (Interlude)
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Machination
Time is lost and I’m without purpose.
The sun set hours ago, where it went I’ll never follow.
The moon, my only friend,
The one that watches as I wake.

Sleep tight my love and bury your mistakes within my dreams.
Breathe in and live for a while.
There’s nothing wrong with pretending to be yourself
When no one knows the real you.
But how many times can you put on a mask
Before it wears out and falls away?

Time is all that’s left to blame,
Just drown the years in all we’ve learned.
Giving up was never an option when you were around.
But I held my head up in spite of it all
And left nothing but dust in my wake.

We are what no one sees.

Sacrifice is second only to forgiveness,
Mastering one is the key to the other.
