Track Name: A Breath of Aggression
I am fire
I am pain
I am the sum of the fear that consumes you
I am the tie that binds
I am the hate that blinds
I am the sum of the power that drives the weak

Hate internal burns this fire eternal
Breathe, just breathe
Hate internal burns this fire eternal
Breathe and burn

Hate internal
Fire eternal
Hate

This fire and powder as they kiss consume

Your shuffle through the mortal coil
Such violent delight
Such violent ends

To such a violent fantasy of your design

Hate internal burns this fire eternal
Breathe, just breathe
Hate internal burns this fire eternal
Breathe and burn

Hate internal
Fire eternal

Feel this fire rise from my throat
Feel this fire burn (burn)

I have become the horror

That now shines in your eyes

Feel this fire


Burn

Hate internal burns this fire eternal
Breathe, just breathe
Hate internal burns this fire eternal
Breathe and burn

Hate internal
Fire eternal
Hate internal x2

Burn
Track Name: Condemned (With a Smile) (Feat. Johnathan Devoy)
We Smile...

Look to the stars, we see the light fading
We wonder why, oh why?
Everything's like a dream I cant escape
Walk through life with a smile that's so fake

Shaken by realisation, mind controls the fate
Driven by desperation, change is here to stay
Darkest hours, darkest days
Walk through life with a smile that's so fake

Help me break free, (break free)
Show me the reasons why
I am condemned
Bring me round, tear me down
Believe your lies
I am condemned

Close my eyes just to get away (just to get away)
taking over all I grew to hate (all I grew to hate)
Everything's like a dream I cant escape
Walk through life with a smile that's so fake

Help me break free, (break free)
Show me the reasons why
I am condemned
Bring me round, tear me down
Believe your lies
I am condemned

Smile that's so fake x 4

Help me break free, (break free)
Show me the reasons why
I am condemned
Bring me round, tear me down
Believe your lies
I am condemned x 2
Track Name: Innocence?
Conflicting thoughts regard that fateful day

My path laid bare and yet I turned away

Consumed inside the rage it burnt so hot

One last taunt this beast could not be stopped



Now I consider the consequence
Of the day I forsake innocence

Constant pain repaid with swift attack

Witness the birth of the maniac



Doubt now cast aside

We will stand with pride

All those times before

There will be no more



Product of your spite

Rage now set alight

My will breaks and bends
 (and bends)
Led you to your end

The end



Doubt now cast aside

We will stand with pride

All those times before

There will be no more
Track Name: Darkness Binds
When love turns to hate
And I have been betrayed

Take my soul again

It’s all that I have left


Open up your eyes
And see this is my life (my life)


Darkness it escapes me

Light it tries to save me

A rescue from the abuse

For a better world



When pride turns to shame

And I am not the same

Take all you can

It’s more than you are worth

Open up your eyes
And see this is my life (my life)



Darkness it escapes me

Light it tries to save me

A Rescue from the abuse

For a better world (for a better world)




A cage inside my mind

A place I like to hide

A light that guides the way

Where you don’t know my pain

Numb the pain



Open up your eyes
And see this is my life (my life)


Darkness it escapes me

Light it tries to save me

A rescue from the abuse

For a better world



Darkness it escapes me

Light it tries to save me

A rescue from the abuse

For a better world (for a better world)
Without you
Track Name: E.K.C.
There’s only so much in this life

‘til I take back what is mine

Sick of all the things you do

Now I’m coming after you

Fool me once
Shame on you

Fool me twice
Fuck yourself

The end is coming

It makes me smile

All the rage out running
Demon is aroused

Your life is over

Walls closing in

Time is surely over
Now my life begins



The end is worth the price I'd pay

To not see you another day

With this done we are through

Now it’s time to bury you



Fool me once (fool me once)
Shame on you

Fool me twice (fool me twice)
Fuck yourself


The end is coming

It makes me smile

All the rage out running
Demon is aroused

Your life is over

Walls closing in

Time is surely over
Now my life begins




The end is coming

It makes me smile

All the rage out running
Demon is aroused

Your life is over

Walls closing in

Time is surely over
Now my life begins


Fuck off

Motherfucker


Track Name: Wannabe Superstar
Travel the world
Try to be a star

To prove to all
What you say you are

Live the life
Live the dream

You are more
Than you seem

Show the world
What you've got
Take them down
Your on top

So you say
You wanna be
Superstars (
tonight their heads will roll)



You own the world
You became that star

They bow to you
Everything you are

Rose above
Took the crown
Everyone
Has gone down
Someone new
Wants it all
Now prepare
For the fall

So you say
You wanna be
Superstars (
tonight their heads will roll)
So you say
You wanna be
Superstars (
tonight you'll crush their souls)



Superstar (wanna be) x4



Superstar (do you wanna be a) x3
Superstar (do you wanna be)

S
o you say
You wanna be
Superstars
 (tonight their heads will roll)
So you say
You wanna be
Superstars (
tonight you'll crush their souls)


Heads will roll

Crush their souls x 2
Track Name: Notch on the Belt
Fight fire with fire
You side with the enemy

All you did was
Give me the closure I need

Lie to my face
A fake smile 'til the end

With all you've done
There will be no amends



You're just a notch on the belt

So don't cry to me

No more

The ones who love you
Hurt you the most

Taken for granted
Take back what's owed

How quickly things can go
From bad to worse

The blink of an eye
It can be over



You're just a notch on the belt

So don't cry to me

No more

You're just a part of the game

So don't cry to me

No more


How quickly things can go
From bad to worse

The blink of an eye
It can be over



You're just a notch on the belt

So don't cry to me

No more

You're just a part of the game
So don't cry to me

No more
