1. Incarnate 365 Imprisoned on this dying shell Escape is inevitable Light burns bright Beneath these eyes More than mere flesh lies salvageable Imaginations indefinite neglect Worst type of crime of all Child's mind, all the time Before you become your own evil Thrown away tomorrow's Scattered along the sides of the road The nights I lied awake plotting The demise of a love You'll never know

No One 00:40
2. No One You talk and you fucking talk Your bullshit never stops Do you think anyone is afraid? Of all the friends you've betrayed Who's gonna back you up now? Alone in your own little crowd Thinking you're the one who's in control Your stupid shit's getting so old No one, Your words mean nothing to me And vengeance... Cross me again and we'll see You'll be the one to fucking pay!

3. Systems Overload Looking around on these streets There's nothing left to do Penance through your charities Now it's turned on you Demons looking in on me Slipping through the cracks Watching, starving, waiting Timing their attack Beyond the flesh that imprisons Beyond the death you've envisioned Beyond the fear you'll embrace Giving your life a foul taste System's overloading Fear envelops me Cry out for redemption Blind, forgotten - seen All the while fighting Trying to get on top Once the focus changes All your senses... Stop.

4. Armenian Persecution All I can think about is revenge The slaughter inside my head never ends And to all who deny this sin Bab eed Janed cach-nem Ethnic genocide One million died Cries went unheard in 1915 No one remembers, no one believes Some turks deny, but they fucking lie America knew, but as usual They just stood by and listened to the cries "Why interfere? There's no money here. Who are the Armenians... who fucking cares if they're alive. Who cares if they fucking survive." Forced in the desert and into sandy graves Children were murdered while their mothers were raped Babies were thrown in the air and impaled on swords Nothing but death from the Turkish hordes Dispersal took place Most met a cruel end Now we are few but we'll always be true To the Armenians that we will defend First they were bound, then split with an axe They juggled their heads, and the turks laughed Set on fire like a human torch Many were nailed alive to the floor

5. Grace Of The Unholy A cycle to repeat itself No matter how you try to ignore The first ages of innocence Instilled since before you were born Your worlds punishments fulfills all your wrongs Pathetic flesh involved pawn Arriving on a sea of red The cycle continues on Struggling to survive Deceit It's coming down Out of societies bother You won't make a sound A new horror for every horizon Away from all the obstacles you've seen An end to elusive unknowns Behind the curtain of your dreams Beneath this flesh that constricts Exists more freedom than insanity To sink past the core of your soul Escaping the shackles of humanity Escape.

6. Forevers Horizon Empowered by the duality Memories abruptly fade Slipped behind salvation's dress Time expires at half speed Aiding in the destruction Blind to your dreams intensity While your existence, ceases to exist It's too late to believe Into oblivion's arms All desires dissipate Forevers horizon pulling me in This wasn't supposed to be the way I was never good enough for your society And you never let me forget your contempt for my kind Everyday you tried to keep me down But now you've changed and want to start coming around Past won't be forgotten!

Mediator 02:13
7. Mediator Snared in it's path Can't get away I smolder Each and every day I won't forget the threats you made It's closing in on me Your rules don't apply to me I'm not gonna "talk it out" I've heard it all before Won't hear it again Now I'm gonna make it end Condemned me Publicly Can't back up a word you've said You can't run, you can't hide I'm gonna get my revenge Can't keep me down You never wanted me around Hated me from the start Now your words are tearing you apart Brought it all on yourself You're never gonna be safe Should have thought it over better Before you chose to mediate Never forget, never forgive Vengeance consumes my mind It'll keep building up inside For as long as I live

8. Salvations Malevolence Severed forever, I'm never getting up again I've breathed in life - don't want this to ever end Stolen glance and I can't to save the end of me Temptation fills the house - sin of iniquities Cast shadows walk into my light All my soul consumed by pride I've feared the heavens for far too long Await this moment with open arms Denied ascent, forbidden salvation This blind contempt can't go unanswered On my knees, I can't breathe In this infernal damnation Seasons in the size of days I wait Confined by salvation's malevolence To decide my fate All alone, I call you near You've shown compassion... and how sincere Look at this place that I'm in Blanketed by your prejudice, your fears, your ignorance Still, in the corner I see them stalking me They taste the cowardice in the air Enhancing their hunger, they move in closer Terror blinds, salvation's gratitude confines I can almost feel the demon

Fading Away 01:19
9. Fading Away Slipped right through my fingers Afraid to take control Watched on from the sidelines Every moment took it's toll I can't forget, too much regret It'll never escape my soul Haunting me everyday As I slowly fade away Walking through your eyes one more time I finally realize it has all gone away again.

10. Jimson Isolation Distraction crossing my mind Words twisting outside themselves again Embedded and red Breath is fading out Consecration swallows all that I was Your touch opens the wound Agreement follows blistering pain Fever-touched flesh Wishing there was nothing left Desperate for lies to unfold heaven Intolerant smiles Ever-watching seas of greed You want to take it away I can taste the blood on the back of my throat Nothing like your hatred to give me new hope I look out, I see all your gaping mouths, eyes burning Distractions hold somewhat true Mine is only half. Let me out. Isolate.
11.
The Screams 01:53
11. The Screams Chaos consumes all I see Infecting everybody Lost amidst confusion Blocking out the screams Asphyxiation, strangulation, delirium Seasons have come and gone We've been here all along Absorbed from your realities Identity slowly fade Lured from any distinction As she slowly melts away When it's finally over you'll know what I mean Your first mistake was replacing the screams Wanted to make it weak just like yourself Theres more to this than your pathetic control You can't fight it no matter how hard you try
12.
12. Search For Divinity I can't get it out of my head Just can't let it go You were supposed to watch my back But you helped me lose control Kept my enemies way too close And everything I hated so much They brought me down too easily But I still won't give it up Fought my way back up from the bottom My torment never ends I'll do anything to keep myself straight And one step ahead of my sins. Redemption haunts me eternally In my quest to be free I've turned my back on everything that I was In my search for divinity
