Chapter Zero 02:21
2.
Into the night - taking your life Cadences of my lament, dragged by a chain of moral dissent Digging myself out of the grave, I will not rest ‘til your debt is paid Power that comes with strings, clear now what it all means Your debt is paid in blood, this war reborn in blood My claim, my rage, my blood Cursed in life, so death is a must Ashes to ashes, dust to dust - Violent inheritance, bathed in red Carry the name, walk with the dead Fear not the end, your rival is torn Your only friend at the end of a sword - Every scar... a symbol of purpose, skin that shimmers like gold Justice pours the nectar of totality into souls wistfully unaware
3.
Antivenom 02:11
Nowhere to run - Antivenom Twisting your way in and out of my life Leaving your mark with a venomous bite Shaming me and now you’re gone as quick as you came Once a friend, now a scapegoat for you to cope with your pain Turn your back and walk away, sink your teeth into my veins - Betrayed by a snake, quick to judge but you hide your face Contradicting everything you say, only you to blame for your fall from grace Is this what it comes to? Why does it have to be me against you? This fever boils my blood, there’s no telling what I might do
4.
Interference 02:48
Incoming static, signals of panic, answers distorted by noise Surrending for a safe place to rest, is this all I can expect? Loss of connection, message corrupted A moment of clarity, interrupted... Interference in my life Overload and I crash - I see the violence on the screens, I see faces just like me... Afraid to be the next headline that they read
5.
Demon 03:07
Who is this demon inside of me? End my life, set me free Spiraling... You lied to me All this pain you said I’d never feel Disbelief... Only I know it’s real - A demon I have not killed... A demon I have become
6.
Wire trips, frozen still Confronted by memories against my will Relapsed again, is it fault of my own? Chaos pervaded what progress had sewn Abuse disguised as discipline, you try to hide the truth Doused in the fuel, words that you use Reminded of fire by familiar fumes - I can’t dictate the path it takes The inevitable escape Falling further into rage Sensory link to pain - Flayed to the bone, cemented into this prison I feel like a victim again - Cursed word, like a bloodstain Made to feel like I’m insane A bomb explodes inside my brain Sensory link to pain - Forced to relive it again and again My trauma knows no end
7.
Bu Zhi Chun 03:45
Waiting as the receptive Earth, I refuse to force my desires Knowing that when the time is right, I will see the sun - Cursed - Fog surrounds my destiny Thought - Is this life right for me? Killed - Test of my patience, haunting my mind Lost - In the passing of time I wait for a new life Biding my time, behind these walls Kept awake by the horror of it all Never knowing spring... Never knowing home Seasons change and still I stand alone - Applied force to my will, so it must be Power laid dormant before, now you will see Never knowing spring... Never knowing home Deny all the lies of flesh and bone - Awaiting my rebirth, resting in purgatory Awake, shine light on my fate Betrayed by mankind I live to deny all their lies
8.
Persona 02:43
Am I neither here nor there? An idea still beyond my reach... Under the veil of what you see Is there a reason to believe? - Searching desperately for love To give meaning to your soul How many of us are... too scared to be alone?
9.
Catch and release, the cure remains unseen Recovery... Only a myth Ecstatic agony will always visit
10.
Shifting state of being, step forward unyielding I refuse to live in fear of those who live to hate Death comes quick if you sit and wait - Manifest a world of thought, you must live with the law - Fighting change, your greatest flaw Drowning in ego, precious time you bleed You think you can control everything - Abide by the river of life Afford yourself a chance to breathe Flow with the change it brings - Flow as the river and you may breathe Fighting your fate... Drown in defeat
