01. Prelude 3.0

I dont know why I never told you
I dont why I never tried
when we shed these bitter skins again
all the reasons come to life
but now its over
now its over
now its over
now its over

I dont know why you never asked me
I dont know why you never cared
when we hide these little sins again
all the reasons have to die
but now its over
now its over
now its over
now its over
now its over
now its over
now its over
now its over

02. The Blister Exists

ONE, TWO, THREE!!!
YEAH!!!
DROP IT!!!
Bones in the water and dust in my lungs
Absorbing archaic like a sponge
The ultimate way is the way you control
But can you stay if you detach your soul?
Bury the present and squeeze out the past
The ones you endear to never last
Chemical burns and the animalistic
I'm just anohter hardline pseudo-statistic
Can you feel this?
I'm dying to feel this
Can you feel this?
Blood on the paper and skin on my teeth
Trying to commit to what's beneath
To find the time is to lose the momentum
You learn the lessons and immediately forget them
Automatic and out of my reach
Consult all the waste to find the key
Minimal life and the polysyllabic
I'm just another blank page - push the button, pull the rage
Can you feel this?
I'm dying to feel this
Can you feel this?
I am all, but what am I?
Another number that isn't equal to any of you
I control, but I comply
Pick me apart, then pick up the pieces
I'm uneven
I am the damaged one
All my life and the damage done
Can you feel this?
I'm dying to feel this
Can you feel this?
I'm dying to feel this
I am all, but what am I?
Another number that isn't equal to any of you
I control, but I comply
Pick me apart, then pick up the pieces
I'm uneven

O3. Three Nil

One
Two
Three
NIL!!!

(Yeah!)

Chaos - it's just the beginning
Every promise I made I'm rescinding
Center mass in the middle of the monster
I'm getting tired of drowning the constant
cry for help - it's debatable
The only reason that you love me is I'm hated by all
Come on - Come see dysfunction
I guess we're gonna leave it open for discussion

Who am I? And where am I going?
Maybe I'm looking in the wrong direction
Maybe I'm looking for any direction
This is not my war - This is not my fight
This is something more - This is not my life
(This is not my) Revolution
(This is not my) Convolution
(This is not my) Expectation
(This is not my) Desperation

Holed up, scarred and tamed for the hell of it
Look at me - I'm the glorified malcontent
Save me? Save this!
All I gotta do is give up and all is forgiven
I'm sick - Of being the butt of a cosmic joke
And I don't get the punch line
A million people lined up for miles
To see the Great Big Mouth shut up and apologize

This is not my war - This is not my fight
This is something more - This is not my life
(This is not my) Revolution
(This is not my) Convolution
(This is not my) Only reason to question why
Today, I said goodbye!

Goodbye!
Oh I didn't need to leave to stay right here
Today I said goodbye!

I am the pariah (break me)
I am the liar (save me)
I can take anything (make me)
Accuse me of everything (take me)
Cut off the system (shape me)
Deny my existence (waste me)
I won't be afraid (try me)
I won't be unmade (deny me)

So come on - break it off
Come on - buy the lie
Come on - say it, say it
Come on

Say goodbye!

Goodbye!
Oh I didn't need to leave to stay right here
Today I said goodbye!
Goodbye!
Oh I didn't need to leave to stay right here
Today I said goodbye!

04. Duality

I push my fingers into my Eyes
It’s the only thing that slowly stops the ache
But it’s made of all the things I have to take
Jesus it never ends, it works its way inside
If the pain goes on

I have screamed until my veins collapsed
I waited as my time’s elapsed
Now all I do is live with so much fate;
I've wished for this, I've bitched at that
I've left behind this little fact;
You cannot kill what you did not create
I've gotta say what I've gotta say;
And then I swear I'll go away
But I can't promise you'll enjoy the noise;
I guess I’ll save the best for last
My future seems like one big past
You’re left with me 'cause you left me no choice

I push my fingers into my eyes
It’s the only thing that slowly stops the ache
If the pains goes on
I'm not gonna make it!

Put me back together
Or separate the skin from bone
Leave me all the pieces
Then you can leave me alone
Tell me the reality
Is better than the dream
But I found out the hard way
Nothing is what it seems!

I push my fingers into my eyes
It’s the only thing that slowly stops the ache
But it’s made of all the things I have to take
Jesus it never ends, it works its way inside
If the pain goes on
I'm not gonna make it!

All I've got
All I've got is insane!
All I've got
All I've got is insane!
All I've got!
All I've got is insane!
All I've got!
All I've got is insane!
All I've got
All I've got is insane!
All I've got
All I've got is insane!

I push my fingers into my eyes
It’s the only thing that slowly stops the ache
But it’s made of all the things I have to take
Jesus it never ends, it works its way inside
If the pain goes on
I'm not gonna make it!

All I've got
All I've got is insane!
All I've got
All I've got is insane!
All I've got!
All I've got is insane!
All I've got!
All I've got is insane!

05. The Opium Of The People

Watch those idiosyncrasies
Watch all the idiots fall on me
Running out of ways to get outta the way
Take another shot just to stay the same
But I need some balance - Back it off
Fill your lungs 'til it makes you cough
Tell me everything's gonna be alright
'Cause I don't think I'll make it through tonight

The only way - Is all the way

Oh - my - God
It's judgement day and I'm not prepared
Everybody out there's running scared
So - Take a little bit off the top
I don't care, just make it stop

I won't give another soul... to you
I won't give another life... to you
You have to stop
Stop!

Do one thing and say something cryptic
But the styles always clash
One thing I know for sure
The hypothetical won't work anymore
One wrong move and they will pound!
My nails are tight inside my wrists
This sacrament is sacrilege and sentimental
Deity experimental - Faith is accidental

I won't give another soul... to you
I won't give another life... to you
I won't give another thought... to you
I won't give anymore of my hope... to you

06. Circle

Give me the dust of my father
Stand on the face of the ancients
Bare the secret flesh of time itself

Follow me... I've come so far, I'm behind again
Follow me... I Wish so hard, I'm there again
Follow me...

All that I wanted were things I had before
All that I needed, I never needed more
All of my questions are answers to my sins
And all of my endings are waiting to begin

I know the way, but I falter
I can't be afraid of my patience
There's a sacred place Razel keeps safe

Follow me... I've seen so much I'm blind again
Follow me... I feel so bad I'm alive again
Follow me...

All that I wanted were things I had before
All that I needed, I never needed more
All of my questions are answers to my sins
And all of my endings are waiting to begin

07. Welcome

I am a product, of your conduct
The uncontrollable urges that made me
have made us all - Are you proud ?
Do you even care?
You taught us all to lie - that's how we made it here

You should've buried the truth with your pretense
Now as far as I know, I don't know anything
Cause you made damn sure, I wasn't anything

Distractions, Reactions
The only way to go is to go away
Discarded, Retarded
Before I let you go, you have to let me

Clawed away from human clay
We are the broken shards, the art disarray
Before you condemn, you rape them
feed us meconium
Stund our growth from our souls to our throats - CUT
You shouldn't wall us up with your apathy
but you did - Now you're only growing enemies
This is the catalyst, the alpha, the first breed
Cause you made damn sure, now we're everything

Distractions, Reactions
The only way to go is to go away
Discarded, Retarded
Before I let you go, you have to let me

Much to my surprise, I will wake up
And follow the path of the ones i am made of
But this time I won't give in
I will save you from my sins

(What is wrong with this...Manipulation...Violence and Chaotic)

Ensconced...in all that's wrong
I slam you shut, I can only take so much
How many times do I have I mistreat you?
Constantly biting my hands as I feed you ?
Maybe now you'll understand severity
I'll sum it up with the best amout of brevity

Welcome to the transformation
Welcome to annihilation
Welcome to the man that wanted
Everything, but couldn't have it

Distractions, Reactions
The only way to go is to go away
Discarded, Retarded
Before I let you go, you have to let me

Much to my surprise I will wake up
And follow the path of the ones I am made of
But this time I won't give in
I will save you from my sins

Save you from my sins
Save you from my sins

08. Vermillion

She seems dressed in all the rings
Of past fatalaties
So fragile yet so devious
She continues to see it
Climatic hands that press
Her temples and my chest
Enter the night that she came home
Forever

Oh (She's the only one that makes me sad)

She is everytihng and more
The solemn hypnotic
My Dahlia, you're bathed in posession
She is home to me

I get neverous, perversed when I see her to worse
But the stress is astounding
It's now or never she's coming home
Forever

Oh (She's the only one that makes me sad)

Hard to say what caught my attention
Vixen crazy, Aphid Attraction
Carve my name in my face, to recognize
Such a pheromone cult to terrorize

I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me

(Yeah!)

I'm a slave, and I am a master
No restraints and, unchecked collectors
I exist throught my name, to self ablige
She is something in me, the darkness finds

I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me

I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me

SHE ISN'T REAL!
I CAN'T MAKE HER REAL!
SHE ISN'T REAL!
I CAN'T MAKE HER REAL!

(She isn't real, I can't make her real)
(She isn't real, I can't make her real)

09. The Pulse Of The Maggots

This is the year where hope fails you
The test subjects run the experiment
And the bastards you know is the hero you hate
But cohesing is possible if we try
There's no reason
There's no lesson
No time like the present
Tell me right now, What have you got to lose?
What have you got to lose, except your soul?
Who's with us?

I fight, for the unconventional
Their rights and it's unconditional
I can only be as real as I can
But there's advantages, I never knew the plan
This isn't just a way to be a martyr
I can't walk alone any longer
I fight, for the ones who can't fight
And if I lose atleast I tried

We, we are the new diabolic
We, we are the bitter you coward
If I have to give my life you can have it
We, we are the pulse of the maggot

I wont, be the inconsequential
I wont, be the wasted potential
I can make it as severe as I can
Until you realize you'll never take us down
It isn't just a one sided version
We dealt with a man next to virgin
I wont let the truth be perverted
and I wont leave another victim deserted

We, we are the new diabolic
We, we are the bitter you coward
If I have to give my life you can have it
We, we are the pulse of the maggot

Do you understand?
Yes

Say it again, say it again,
We won't die
Say it again, say it again,
We won't die
Say it again, say it again,
We won't die

We fight, but no one can fight us
We live, and no one can stop us
We pushed but we pushed too far
And the advantage is the bad alliance
We never picked a fight in the first place
We only meant to spit back in their face
We wont walk alone any longer
What doesn't kill us only makes us stronger

We, we are the new diabolic
We, we are the bitter you coward
If I have to give my life you can have it
We, we are the pulse of the maggot

Do you understand?
Yes

Say it again, say it again,
We won't die
Say it again, say it again,
We won't die
Say it again, say it again,
We won't die

10. Before I Forget

Go!

Stapled shut, inside and ouside would and I'm
Sealed in tight, but right at home
Claustrophobic, closing in and I'm
Catostrophic, not again
I'm smeared across the page, and doused in gasoline
I wear you like a stain, yet I'm the one who's obscene
Catch me upon all your sordid little insurrections,
I've got no time to lose, and I'm just caught up in all the cattle

Fray the stings
Throw the sheathes
Hold your breath
And listen!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I'm ripped across the ditch, and settled in the dirt and I'm
Wiggled like a stitch, yet I'm the one who's hurt
Pay attention to your twisted little indiscrestions
I've got no right to way, I'm just caught up all the battles

Locked in flesh
Pushed in place
Hold your breath
And listen!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

My end
It justifies my means
All I have to do is delay
I'm given time to evade
The end of the road is my end
It justifies my means
All I have to do is delay
I'm haven't time to evade
THE END OF THE ROAD!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, OH!

11. Vermillion Pt. 2

She seemed dressed in all of me
stretched across my shame
All the torment and the pain
Leaked through and covered me
I'd do anything to have her to myself
Just to have her for myself

Now I dont know what to do,
I dont know what to do
When she makes me sad

She is everything to me
The unrequited dream
A song that no one sings
The unattainable
She's a myth that I have to believe in
All I need to make it real is one more reason

I dont know what to do,
I dont know what to do
when she makes me sad.

But I wont let this build
up inside of me
I wont let this build
up inside of me
I wont let this build
up inside of me
I wont let this build
up inside of me

A catch in my throat
Choke,
Torn into pieces
I wont, no
I dont want to be this

But I wont let this build
up inside of me
I wont let this build
up inside of me
I wont let this build
up inside of me
I wont let this build up
inside of me

She isnt real
I can't make her real
She isnt real
I can't make her real

13. The Virus Of Life
 
I can see you but you can't see me
I could touch you and you wouldn't even feel me
Wait a second and you'll settle down
I'm just waiting, 'til you really let your guard down?
Your relaxed, your sublime, your amazing
You don't even know the danger you're facing
If I'm quiet, I'll slide up behind you
And if you hear me I'll enjoy trying to find you

I've been with you all day
I'm trying to stay calm
i'm impatient and it's really hard to breathe
I'm going to empty you and fill you in with me

Just keep the violence down
Not yet - don't make a sound
Oh God I'm feeling it
It's reaching fever pitch
My skin is caving in
My heart is driving out
No mercy, no remorse
Let nature take its course

watch me - Bring me to my knees
waiting - I am your disease
lover - set my sympton free
covered - you won't feel a thing
you can't stop me

(wait, no, wait, no, wait, wait, not yet, no wait)

I'm sweating through my veins
I'm trying to hold on
It's unbearable, it's almost worse for me
I'm gonna to tear you apart and make you see
MAKE YOU SEE!

watch me - Bring me to my knees
waiting - I am your disease
lover - set my sympton free
covered - you won't feel a thing

This is the virus
THE VIRUS OF LIFE
It gets inside us
AND HURTS US INSIDE
This is the virus
THE VIRUS OF LIFE
This is inside us
THE ONE THAT CONNECTS

It's almost time to play
It's time to be afraid
I can't control the pain
I can't control in me
I'm glad I'm ready now
You're almost ready now
I'm gunna raid it now
I'm gonna break it down
I see you in the dark
I see you all the way
I see you in the light
I see you bright as day
I wanna suck your face
I wanna suck your soul
I wanna wear your face
I WANT TO BREAK IT ALL

watch me - Bring me to my knees
waiting - I am your disease
lover - set my sympton free
lover - You don't love me

This is the virus, the virus of life
This is the virus, the virus of life
This is the virus, the virus of life
This is the virus, the virus of life

THIS IS THE VIRUS, THE VIRUS OF LIFE!
THIS IS THE VIRUS, THE VIRUS OF LIFE!
THIS IS THE VIRUS, THE VIRUS OF LIFE!
THIS IS THE VIRUS, THE VIRUS OF LIFE!

14. Danger- Keep Away

We too feel alone

That place in my mind
Is that space that you call mine
That place in my mind
Is that space that you call mine

Where have I been all this time?
Lost enslaved fatal decline
I've been waiting for this to unfold (Good)
The pieces are only as good as the whole

Severed myself from my whole life
Cut out the only thing that was right
What If I never saw you again
I'd die right next to you in the end

That place in my mind
Is that space that you call mine
That place in my mind
Is that space that you call mine

I wouldnt let you walk away
Without hearing what I have to say
Without hearing what I have to say
Without hearing what I have to say
