Track Name: Transgressions
Drink this vile of poison,
it is all you need,
take this needle of hatred,
it will make you bleed,
eyes white,
no color,
don't even know who you are,
what ever happened to the kid I knew just playing in the park?
eyes closed,
arms folded,
is the path coming for you,
go to the light,
conquer,
overcome,
reach out,
falling on my knees I'm trying,
trying to find the words to say,
you know it hurts to see you crying,
take it,
take the pain away,
I'm holding on to this in silence,
struggling to hold the weight,
falling on my knees I'm trying,
trying to find the words to say,
Drink this vile of poison,
it is all you need,
take this needle of hatred,
it will make you bleed,
trying to find the words to say,
you know it hurts to see you crying,
take it,
take the pain away,
I'm holding on to this in silence,
struggling to hold the weight,
falling on my knees I'm trying,
trying to find the words to say.
Track Name: Convictions
Never tried to renew,
what is lost and what I see through,
I have failed again,
I've been lost searching for something,
is there a way out?
oh God be the light to my shadows,
this empty hole in my chest is filled with desire,
I am not the man I was,
is there any reason for me to be true after all you put me through?
conviction is me,
when can I be free?
conviction is me,
when can I be free?
when the sentence is resumed,
and you have had your reasons,
just try and make me the accused,
what do you take me for?
Track Name: Lamentations
More and more we will fight for this,
we will not let the world define us,
more and more we will push through,
there will always be a light inside us,
world overcome,
pain grips my lungs,
I push through with the blood on my hands,
screaming as I run,
tearing from my lungs,
I push through as the world grows silent,
tearing flesh,
breaking bones,
bow to your knees and beg for mercy,
the right words have been heard by willing ears who needed strength in their moment of weakness,
pull through and cling to these words of truth that gave you strength when they tried to break us,
my world is overcome,
I'm tearing from my lungs,
I'm screaming as i mourn for the friends that have fallen,
my heart is broken,
world overcome,
pain grips my lungs,
I push through with the blood on my hands,
screaming as I run,
tearing from my lungs,
I push through as the world grows silent
Track Name: Isolation
Sinking in this hole,
I'm feeling stuck; abandoned,
and I'm feeling so frustrated,
infinite directions,
but nowhere to go,
stuck; abandoned,
we lose all hope,
so frustrated,
nowhere to go,
his starved mind took him to the highest temple,
they said "we'll catch you take the fall", no harm will come if you will say the one name,
you will be raised above it all,
my head is spinning through an infinite world as I run with no sense of direction,
reaching for the walls,
I feel the air and nothing else,
I'm trapped in isolation,
with nothing to be felt,
stuck; abandoned,
we lose all hope,
so frustrated,
with nowhere to go,
find me here,
lost in the darkness,
I'm still here,
reaching for the walls,
I'm still here,
reaching for the walls
Track Name: Obstructions
Shaking,
my eyes are bloodshot,
hold high your weapon,
bear the sword and show no mercy,
know what the truth is,
as the world will fight against us,
my knees may buckle as I stand before my tempter,
but I will stand strong in the love shared with my brothers,
shaking,
my eyes are bloodshot with the pain I bear,
my ears are longing foe the voice I can't hear,
follow me and I'll show you just what you've been missing,
follow me and I'll pull you from your path into the dark,
turn away from these obstructions,
let them bear no strength against you,
we will run from these obstructions,
they will bear no strength against us,
follow me and I'll show you just what you've been missing,
follow me and I'll pull you from your path into the dark,
my eyes are bloodshot with the pain I bear,
my ears are longing foe the voice I can't hear
Track Name: Afflictions
What am I doing?
Am I spending my time right on this earth?
this is the question I have asked him far too many times,
the places and faces that surround me are starting to change,
I need to get out of here before it's too late,
before we're too gone,
this is not the end,
God will pave the way,
I think we're starting to forget what we are,
I think we need to realize what we have,
we've been abusing our free will,
destroying what he gave us,
when we realize that this sick world is just what we created,
let's do our part and rid the world of these afflictions,
get off your feet,
let's shake the ground and sing this with us,
rid the world
