Track Name: Diplomatic Immunity
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Of The Unwilling
Weak and fragile spine, you are far behind
Why have you betrayed yourself?
Such a sight to see, was it meant to be?
Fiction never seemed so real

How could this happen, something so tragic
Tell me it's not real, cherish time fulfill

I know life's hard to cope but hold on
I know life's hard to cope but hold on for me

Unapproachable and undeclared
So invincible but not aware
Now these scars will last forever
Life isn't fair

While you sit there and ask yourself why
Prepare yourself for this

I've kept my mouth shut too long
Metaphoric message in song
I will clear your mind within
Punish you for all of your sins
All your sins

Choose wisely, approach with honesty
Disdain your beliefs, walk away from false security
For you cannot put a price on my life
For you cannot put a price on my life now

So I might have seen the light
For I have grown more comfortable
So I might have seen the light
(Shaking, breaking, of the unwilling)
For I have grown more comfortable
So I might have seen the light
(Shaking, breaking, of the unwilling)
For I have grown more comfortable
Comfortable in darkness
Track Name: Lifeless Seeds (Are Meant To Be Sacrificed)
As I see you from the inside
I figured out what you can't hide

Execute orders and destroy the sun
For dwelling in darkness is what I've become
Night after night I take in all the pain
A corpse with a mind is all that remains
Servant, a servant I am here for you
Your sinister task will push me through
Servant, a servant I am here for you
Your sinister task will push me through
No man's land

Deny the truth and you will find nothing, no peace of mind
Deny the truth and you will find nothing, no peace of mind

Cower in your thoughts, reimagine democracy
Cower in your dreams, reimagine democracy

Now the days have come, when you can't find who you are
The person you thought you knew has traveled afar
Has traveled afar
Has traveled afar

Do you fear what I fear, what you need no retreat
In the end time will tell you will see, it’s fallen on me
Do you fear what I fear, what you need no retreat
In the end time will tell you will see, it’s fallen on me
Fallen on me

As I see you from the inside
I figured out what you can't hide

Oh, bow your heads, how many times you've tried to forget
Oh, bow your heads, how many times you've tried to forget

Questioning the authority, and soon you'll see what it meant to me
Together as one the majority will overthrow society
Lifeless seeds are meant to be sacrificed
Lifeless seeds are meant to be sacrificed

You will see, you will see
Your days are numbered, patience no longer
Leave me the fuck alone
Your days are numbered, patience no longer
Just leave me the fuck alone.

Until that day we will finally realize
That deception will be our only compromise
Until that day we will finally realize
That deception will be our only compromise
Until that day we will finally realize
That deception will be our only compromise

You could never take this passion from my veins
Enemies of ignorance remain the same
You don't even know the fucking half of it
Enemies of ignorance remain the same

That one and only thought
Track Name: Why Did It Have To Be Snakes!?
I won't be let down by your greed and filth
We have trusted far too long in your deception

Whoa, you thought we were here for you
And how could you not have a clue
They have no time for your bad luck
Now you know that we don't give a fuck

Cry to your gods, there's nothing here for you
Searching for answers, wasting our youth
Cry to your gods, there's nothing here for you
Searching for answers, wasting our youth

It's time we are back and we fucking mean business
These structures were built on false decisions
A corrupted life is a kind untrue
Now they've planted the target and they're after you

Now you know, now you see
That this is motherfucking destiny
Now you know, now you see
That this is mother fucking destiny

Run back to your rebound of content and torture
Run back to your rebound of content and torture

Downward spirals miscommunication
Filled with filth is your pathetic fucked up nation

Well you can talk your shit and you can stare us down
But when we head on stage, you'll be reduced to a frown
Well you can talk your shit and you can stare us down
But when we head on stage, you'll be reduced to a frown

And I know, and I know, That we would rather be alone
And I know, and I know, That we would rather be alone
And I know, and I know, That we would rather be alone

We will stand, and you will fall
With our backs against the wall
We will stand, and you will fall
With our backs against the wall

Fallen
We are what's left of the genesis
Listen to reason, deny your lord

Now we march to the structures of death
Lies upon lies of eternal regret
Dwelling in the past won't change the events
In the midst of chaos, no
Why did it have to be snakes!?

Downward spirals miscommunication
Fabricated is the essence of your reason
Downward spirals miscommunication
Fabricated is the essence of your reason
Track Name: Sarlacc Pit
Crawl to the ones that show remorse
Fall your feeble fractured force
Crawl to the ones that show remorse
Fall your feeble fractured force

How are we inclined to dispose of all the benefits, benefits
Now eat up, eat up all those notes
How are we inclined to dispose of all the benefits, benefits
Living a life of sorrow

An eye for an eye you once said to me
but how could this be but bitter rivalry
An eye for an eye you once said to me
but how could this be but bitter rivalry

You failed to see, deception in reality
No, never ceasing the pain, we welcome you

We welcome you, to the other side
We welcome you, to the other side
The other side, the other side

I thought I should mention another perspective
Another dimension, another dimension

Forced to surrender yourself to me
The Sarlacc Pit brainwashes everything
Forced to surrender yourself to me
The Sarlacc Pit, it brainwashes everything
Track Name: Who's In My Fruit Cellar?
Now take me down, face to face with my demons
Integrity meet my friend, insecurity

And I fear things have changed for the worst
Set me free you'll see, a dying legacy
To spread their greed, diseased from this media
I'm not proud and I bear this curse
Basically in need of a new destiny
So let it be, deceived by the public peers
And you will never catch me bowing on my knees
And you will never catch me bowing on my fucking knees

Never have I seen such delusion
And absence of thought in my mind
Never have I seen such delusion
And absence of thought in my mind

Now you pay the price
Fear for your lives, fear for your lives

Surely tonight's the time to die, instantaneously revived
Surely tonight's the time to die, instantaneously revived
Do not believe this legacy, never compare to me
Do not believe this legacy, never compare to me
Surely tonight's the time to die, instantaneously revived
Surely tonight's the time to die, instantaneously revived

Just admit this has gone too far
Just accept it
Just admit this has gone too far
Just accept your fate

Consistently falling back to what you know
Consistently falling back to what you know
As I look back at it now, I regret it all, fuck
As I look back at it now, I regret it all
No more mistakes

Will you reach out for me?
I stand here
Will you reach out for me?
I stand here still
Stand here still

Constantly living your life on repeat
Constantly living your life on repeat
Set your goals and then the rest is easy
Free yourself from such despair

Come one, come all to the zombie circus
Where most oppositions have no purpose
Ideology and the acts of worship
Are simply jaded, fabricated bullshit

Properly offering everything you need to be
yet you scream suffering dying in the dark
Properly offering everything you need to be
yet you scream suffering dying in the dark

Redemption fades with the lack of interest
Blackness mends the broken heart in my chest
Foolish boy just hasn't fucking learned yet
That his past is unfortunately and now met

And so it goes
Track Name: Hyperbolic Time Chamber
You had the nerve to reveal your alter ego here

Oh what here a present misguided surprise
Nay the words have spoken, through your idols' eyes
Oh what here a present misguided surprise
Nay the words have spoken, through your idols' eyes

Such bad timing how you want us to fall
Despite our curse you will see
that we've been through it all
Such bad timing how you want us to fall
Despite our curse you will see
that we live through it all

I'm not too bold and I'm not too sure
I haven't quite found what I'm looking for
Trying to find a way to make it out of here
I promise that you'll find your way, I do not wish to hesitate
But if you can't stand for yourself, you will never find your way out

Dispatch process, expose progress
List the shameless one by one
Dispatch process, expose progress
Tie in time

Rewind the VHS of your miserable life
Wake up you fool

Seize the day they told me oh how they were wrong
When will I ever learn from the words in my songs?
Seize the day they told me oh how they were wrong
When will I ever learn from the words in my songs?

Such bad timing how you want us to fall
Despite our curse you will see
that we've been through it all
Such bad timing how you want us to fall
Despite our curse you will see
that we live through it all

I'm not too bold and I'm not too sure
I haven't quite found what I'm looking for
Trying to find a way to make it out of here
I promise that you'll find your way, I do not wish to hesitate
But if you can't stand for yourself, you will never find your way out

Laughing in the silence, is a ghost you can't disprove
Admit to your defiance or the nonsense will consume
Laughing in the silence, is a ghost you can't disprove
Admit to your defiance or the nonsense will consume

You're not liable anymore, you're not desirable anymore
Don't fucking waste my time

It's so obvious, when you hang your head
Such obliviousness my friend
Train your life, drain your soul
A thousand years of silence will takes its toll
Train your life, drain your soul
A thousand years of silence will takes its toll

You struggle for advice, every day and every night
Think twice, there's no compromise, there's no compromise

I'm not too bold and I'm not too sure
I haven't quite found what I'm looking for
Trying to find a way to make it out of here
I promise that you'll find your way, I do not wish to hesitate
But if you can't stand for yourself, you will never find your way out
You will never find your way out
You will never find your way
Track Name: Divine Punishment (Re-issue)
Doomed for eternity
Revenge now awakens thee

Prepare yourself for a thrill ride through hell
These walls around me slowly become my cell
As an act of mindless pain and aggression
Fake words you said as an act of compassion

I`ll bring forth thy evil slaughter, summon friends into my reign
Blessing hell in sacred water, forming demons in their brain
Who shall rise, those that fall, damnation upon them all
Who shall rise, those that fall, damnation upon them all

Blame the wench
Become destined
For the pain within
Face your fears
Let free all promises and tears

I must take the devil's lead
Torture as I please
Thy will succeed

Lust for glory, lust for vengeance
Pray for honesty in their ways
Trust in no, one death approaches
Smiting kin up for display

Time will take its toll, our refuge shall restore
Our refuge shall restore it all

Prepare yourself for a thrill ride through hell
These walls around me slowly become my cell
As an act of mindless pain and aggression
Fake words you said as an act of compassion

Lust for glory, lust for vengeance
Pray for honesty in their ways
Trust in no one death approaches
Smiting kin up for display
Run
Who shall rise, those that fall
Damnation upon them all

I`ll bring forth thy evil slaughter
Summon friends into my reign
Blessing hell in sacred water
Forming demons in their brain
Track Name: Stu Makes Chocolate Pudding At Approximately 4:00AM
Again, you lose

Yearning fulfillment towards the future
mutated are your cells
Rebuilding a new system
That will lead us all to hell

Beneath the surfaces lies the antidote
Will you provoke, will you provoke
As you take away our souls

Now that you've lost yourself, to a vision of reality you once knew
It's like you're someone else
Now that you've lost yourself, to a vision of reality you once knew
It's like you're someone else
Who only ceases to waste time
And time again I will see this through the end
Time and time again I will see this through the end

Not surprised to see you joining forces of the untainted
The untainted changing tactics
Not surprised to see you joining forces of the untainted
The untainted changing tactics

Demonic demoralize
Demonic demoralize
Demonic demoralization

This generation is an ailment
Become punished with the words of your own thoughts
Become punished with the words of your own thoughts
You know when you're fucking wrong

Demonized, let it grow and provoke in the infinite circle
Even I let it roam and indulge in the infected vessels
The infected vessels of human life

I cannot wait to see the look upon your fucking face
This taste will satisfy me for days
For days, and days
I cannot wait to see the look upon your fucking face
This taste will satisfy me for days

Demonized, let it grow and provoke in the infinite circle
Demonized let it grow and provoke in the infinite circle
the infinite circle of human life

You thought it was done, prayed that I was gone
You thought it was done, prayed that I was gone
Oh cowards stay steady and awake
Move this floor and let the fucking earth quake
Oh cowards stay steady and awake
Move this floor and let the fucking earth quake
