Track Name: Contrivance
Tried to find my way back home
But I can’t see the path in my memory
What can I do?
This is a new beginning
This is a new beginning

Tried to find my way back home
But I can’t see the path in my memory
What can I do?
This is a new beginning
This is a new beginning

I see these shadows running behind me
I’ve lost control of my body
Feeling empty

My body encased with metal
With chains that lock me down
Lock me down

I tried to escape
But there’s only blood
We’re mobilised by systems

I tried to escape
But there’s only blood
We’re mobilised by systems

The end of man has come and no one can escape this judgement
Machines will take control of this planet to repair the damage
The time has come
The cleansing has begun

Sit back and enjoy the view
This is what we get
What we brought upon ourselves
When the screaming stops and the smoke has cleared
They all will see that the message is clear
We are the disease
We are the disease
Broken down
Broken down

I tried to escape
But there’s only blood
We’re mobilised by systems

I tried to escape
But theres only blood
We’re mobilised by systems

Bodies locked down with shackles
Debris fall over with flesh and blood
My heart is sunk and broken
Deep down to the very bottom
This is a disease
This is a disease
Track Name: Exoneration
Can you disappear
I'm sick of all this pain
You gave to me
I'm tired of always suffering

Scream these feelings
I will no longer feel contempt
I will not run away
To the distant darkness

Scream these feelings
I will no longer feel contempt
I will not run away
To the distant darkness

I wont let myself be a slave
I will set myself free from this pain
I wont let myself be a slave
To the pain they caused in me

Scream these feelings
I will no longer feel contempt
Nor try to run away
To the distant darkness
I will no longer feel contempt
Nor try to run away
To the distant darkness

The weight on my shoulders
No longer burden my mind

Can you disappear
I'm sick of all this pain
You gave to me
I'm tired of always suffering

Scream these feelings
I will not run away again
(Again)
Scream these feelings
I will to the distant darkness

I wont let myself be a slave
(Be a slave)
To the pain that they caused in me
(Caused in me)
I wont let myself be a slave
(Be a slave)
To the pain that they caused in me
Track Name: Prophecy of the Sun
The Sun will darken
The Moon shall not shine
Constellations collapse from within
The Earth will move and the heavens shake

Mankind will end
This is the price we'll pay
Mankind will end
This is the price we'll pay
This is the price we'll pay

Why does my heart beat so fast?
I feel these tears from my eyes

Feast your eyes on the flames of this apocalypse
All your corruption will be cleansed with pain and suffering
Pain and suffering
Pain and suffering

Feast your eyes on the flames of this apocalypse
All your corruption will be cleansed with pain and suffering
This is the end of time
This is the end of time

This plague was prophesied
Let the flames wash away the sins of humanity
This plague was prophesied
Let the flames wash away the sins of humanity

Mankind will end
This is the price we'll pay
Mankind will end
This is the price we'll pay

Because it’s the end of time
The house is on fire
No one will come to save us
And if you listen closely
Just for one minute
Nothing will remain

This plague was prophesied
Let the flames wash away the sins of humanity
This plague was prophesied
Let the flames wash away the sins of humanity
Track Name: Bury the Hatchet
Can I ask for calm and peace?
These people make no sense
Leave me the fuck alone

Leave me the fuck alone
Wars and battles I always ask for escape
Struggling with human’s jape
All this madness must be ceased

Wake up, wake up this world has seen enough
No one deserves more loss
No more violence, no more blood

Wake up, wake up, clear up, it’s time, evolve
Fights and battles make no sense
End this war and make amends

Save yourself
No more blood
Life is not a toss
No more loss

Dear oh lord
Stop this from happening
Dear oh lord
Can’t take this anymore
Dear oh lord

All I try to win over is calm and fucking peace
Wake up and realise this madness must be ceased

Just make this battlefield pause
Oh lord just make it stop
Life is not a toss
All this madness must be ceased

Wake up, wake up this world has seen enough
No one deserves more loss
No more violence, no more blood

Wake up, wake up, clear up, it’s time, evolve
Fights and battles make no sense
End this war and make amends

Can I ask for calm and peace?
All this madness must be ceased
Can I ask for calm and peace?
These people make no sense
Leave me the fuck alone
Track Name: Internal Struggle
Empty body, empty soul
It’s on speaker I have no control
The siren’s calling me to my cell
Whispering songs in the deep pits of hell

It’s so cold and fucking dark
Zombies wander, I can hear them bark
Where is my humanity
It can’t be heard over insanity

Evil grips my human heart
Breaking through the darkness
On the way to ruin
Destroying my world

Beautiful crime, ugly truth
Who the hell can survive from
This can’t be true, humans cry
From their hopeless soul

Is this my fault?
Are humans this foul?
Is this my fault?
Are humans this foul?

Empty body, empty soul
It’s on speaker I have no control
The siren’s calling me to my cell
Whispering songs in the deep pits of hell

It’s so cold and fucking dark
Zombies wander, I can hear them bark
Where is my humanity
It can’t be heard over insanity

Is this my fault?
Are humans this foul?
Is this my fault?
Are humans this foul?

Evil is taking my human soul
Evil is taking my human soul
Evil is taking my human soul
Evil is taking my human soul
