Track Name: MALIGNITION
Sticks in the mud
Will end up breaking bones
Deceit is worth more than a thousand goodbyes
GOODBYE

Decisions based on emotions aren’t decisions at all

Your silence speaks of words
That I know you won’t say

What you see as light
Is overlapped by my shadow

EVOKE
Hollow and brittle
The trigger is calling
EVOKE
Collective suicide
With a single bullet
EVOKE
The obliterating limelight
One way road paved with silver
Straight into the brick wall

What you did
What you said
Then turned as I bled
Betraying my trust
Oh brother, you are lost
But no, I’ll never forget
May your memory be the last of you
Track Name: VREDE
Clashing wills
The rise of the powerful
Limits are erased
As I strive for the top

Walk through dark to see the light
I was born to win this fight!
Challenging the Iron Fist
I won’t go down

I’m not defined by my
BLOODLINE
I’ll seize all pride
Ignite the fire inside

I’m not defined by my
BLOODLINE
I’ll seize all pride

Vägen jag ser framför mig nu
Är kantad av motståndare
Men jag vandrar vidare
Och inget stoppar mig
Ty kraften är min
I rättvisans namn

Sanna mina ord
Segern blir min till slut
Track Name: LAVENDER
Let's pretend we live
Let's pretend it's for real
Here in this realm of lies

Would you trust yourself?
Let's pretend they believe you
Now, keep your mask on

LAVENDER
Shining bright on this night
Though skies are falling
I hear you calling
Calling me to set you free
LAVENDER
Be my guide, be my light
My frozen fingers grasping on
Time shall never fade your name
LAVENDER

This, what I've become
This is where I belong
I am DIVINITY

ANOTHER LIE (AM I REAL?)
ANOTHER LIFE WASTED
ON CASTLES OF SMOKE
WITHOUT FIRE
Track Name: the blinding conviction
Will you stay with me
When everything else dies?
As ashes swirl in the wind
Decaying

How many more pages
Can you rip away
From the end of this book we share

You are still crawling
Blindly convinced

Just a memory
Is not enough for me
I won’t let go
I won’t let go
Of what is sacred to me

One slow dance
To the beat of abuse
As I look back
Ten thousand hours lost

You turn your back
But I am still right here
Go on and tell me
How I can save you from yourself

You are still crawling...
Track Name: DECADENT ADVENT
Everybody come on over tonight
We have gathered together
Oh, that’s right
Sit tight, one and all
So let us start!

This is our advent

SLEEP WITH THE ENEMY

We draw each other’s breaths
Sharing the last gasp
Yet only I can smell the bile
A rose by any other name

Bow your head but not in shame
On and on, pretend you’re my flame

The bitter nectar
It’s only decadent if you say so
From the corner of my eye
Beneath the joyless sky
I only never needed you

WELCOME TO THE END
Light a candle and smile
Life’s too short, and you’re too young
So step right up and dance for a while!

WELCOME TO THE END
On this decadent night
One year older, one year closer
Celebrate your fading smile

Every kiss is a promise lost
Every lover is an enemy uncrossed
SLEEP WITH THE ENEMY
WE SLEEP IN ENMITY
PICK A GOD AND PRAY

The bitter nectar
It’s only decadent if you say so
From the corner of my eye
I sense the joyless sky
I only never needed you
Track Name: ALWAYS DIE YOUNG
All this time I’ve waited
All this time I’ve lost
I know I’ll die young
Our sun sets for another day

Your misery loves company
So stay right there
Far away from me
Your blood is as thin as your facade
The future begs for answers I don’t have

NO CUTS NO GLORY
NO CUTS NO GLORY

Though there is a will
There’s just no way
Bare your satin neck

What little we have left
Won’t keep me from walking away
I’ve heard it all before
This hollow truth
What is the meaning of a life without answers?

Through all this time I’ve waited
All this time I’ve lost
I know I’ll die young
Our sun sets for another day

NO CUTS NO GLORY
This is not your story
NO CUTS, NO GLORY
So stay right there, far away from me

What little we have left
Won’t keep me from walking away
I’ve heard it all before
These hollow answers

Think back on time we wasted
And all the time we lost
For all it’s worth we know
We're gonna die young
Our sun sets for another day

The velvet sun sets another day
Track Name: BOILING POINT
Listen to the sound of my judgement

SHOCKWAVE
Always bring my blood to a boil
Hydra of Lies
Show me your deceptive neck again

The only problem I see
It's either you or it's me

Birds of prey
Come out to play
Your tainted feathers
Are the worst shade of gray

I taste the venom in you
Contagious Ignorance
Crying for sympathy when you need a wolf
Can you keep up this charade
As justice laughs in vain
TREND KILLER

RAVENOUS
Turn up, throw down, set off
Cradle to the grave
Lie for one more day
Cradle to the grave
The Truth Will Always Hold You Back

The Truth Will Always Hold You Back
Listen to the sound of my judgement

The only problem I see
It's either you or it's me

THE TRUTH WILL ALWAYS HOLD YOU BACK
