Track Name: The Arsonist
Fires burning on the horizon
Flames as far as the eye can see
Behold this burning image before you
All life is engulfed in a fiery red sea

One man's dreams
And anothers desire
To bury all life
Beneath a pile of ashes

Incineration takes its toll
Fires rage beyond control

Undying obsession
To destroy his creation
Watch the worlds cremation
Succumb to death within the blaze

The time has now come for
The earth's rebirth in flames
Wildfires surrounding
There's no escaping me
Longing to watch it burn away
Only the embers shall remain
Scorching the earth consuming all of life
Cry out in vain

My happiness is measured by your pain and suffering
There are to be no fucking survivors - you'll pray for rain

So the arsonist speaks
And all shall heed the warnings from thee
And the arsonist seeks
To bury it all in a tidal wave of flame

Longing to watch it burn away
Only the embers shall remain
Scorching the earth consuming all of life
Cry out in vain

My happiness is measured by your pain and suffering
There are to be no fucking survivors - you'll pray for rain

And buried beneath the ashes
The dreams of the broken and dying

I want to watch it burn
I long to see you burn
So the arsonist speaks.
Track Name: The Epitome Of Hate
You kneel down before the father
And call out his name
"Anything you ask of me"
"I shall obey"

You will never find the strength
To release what lies within
Plagued by the words
Forced on to you from him

Tears of despair
Fill my eyes
Spreading within me
My hate grows stronger

Filth and corruption
Intrude my mind
Tearing me apart
From inside

The epitome of hate
Scars your soul
Lies and deception
Mind control

Forgive me father
For now I shall sin
Released to the world
Your reign now shall end

I seek my redemption
As I end your life
The tables now have turned
As it's your turn to die

Now you hide behind your collar
A servant faithful to your god
Defiling the young at will
Neglecting so-called laws

The dominance you once possessed
Is overcome by fear
The desire in which you obsessed
Will soon be laid to rest



Tears of despair
Fill my eyes
Spreading within me
My hate grows stronger

Filth and corruption
Intrude my mind
Tearing me apart
From inside
Track Name: What Have I Become
Suffocating
Hard to breathe
These walls surround me
I cannot be
Have dreams been shattered
Or just begun
Decades have come and passed
I must remain strong

One can only hope
That this is not the end
Reach into obscurity
To find myself again

Festering within me
The anguish - the pain
Can this ever be
Or will I feel ashamed


The endless sands of time
Can smash one's desire
Not to wither away
Into days gone by
With every breath
I feel it crawling near
The end of our time
Is becoming clear
From the beginning
One's life becomes a test
Who will rise above
And who will be much less

Forever I will be
Aspiration to the dream
Into a burning past
This fading destiny

Believe in me
I am the one
Sickened and vile
For you I have come
For it is you
Who makes me hate
To feel my pain
Suffer again

What have I become ?

(What have I become)

What have I become
Reaching deep inside
This empty shell of life
To grasp what is mine

Fucking doubt me again
I'll bring you to your knees
Pray for your soul
You're my fucking disease


Look into my eyes
Tell me what you see
I sentence you now
To an endless life of grief

You are a waste of life
Forever now, I'm your pain
Never again will I fall
Weakened by my shame

One can only hope
That this is not the end
Reach into obscurity
To find myself again
Track Name: The Art Of Deception
Here comes the new regime
Behind the scenes as they pull the string
Smokey mirror intent to deceive
To make you see what they want you to see

Years of deception at their hands
You fall into their master plan
The after lie too blind to see
They have control they make you believe
Now
Make you believe

Naïve and innocent
Deception their intent
Assimilate control your thoughts
Your freedom now is lost
Fucking lost

Deception the finest art
Manipulate the masses
Society torn apart
Misled by those in control
Deceived by authority
The lies take their toll

Look at us now
We pay for their lies
They just walk away
Walk away

Time after time
The same excuse
Trying to justify
This sick power abuse

Can it be
It's happened again
Enough is enough
It's time for this to end

Deception the finest art
Manipulate the masses
Society torn apart
Misled by those in control
Deceived by authority
The lies take their toll
Track Name: Casualties Of War
It’s been a thousand years
A millennium of destruction
Stained by the bloodshed of man.
Another senseless war
The death toll still rises
As history repeats itself again and again.

Nothing is learned from mistakes that have been made before.
Body count rises they’re just casualties of war.

Another soldier killed for reasons still unknown. Left behind, just memories.
Still trying to figure out what the fuck we’re fighting for.
Fuck these foreign lands.

We are all numbers, just part of the government’s plan.
Soldiers still falling, the bloodstains on their hands.
Nothing is learned from mistakes that have been made before.
Body count rises just casualties of war.


Never (never) (never) again shall existence be erased.
Broken (broken) shell of a man just a number to be replaced.
Suffer (suffer) (suffer) no more as the firing starts to cease.
Never (never) (never) again will you be a casualty.

It’s been a thousand years, a millennium of destruction.
Stained by the bloodshed of man.
Another senseless war, the death toll still rising. As history repeats itself again and again.

Nothing is learned from mistakes that have been made before.
Body count rises, just casualties of war.
Track Name: Centuries Of Blood
Bow down to the centuries
As you drown in your own bloodbath.
Bodies butchered and defiled.
Wiped out in the aftermath. (aftermath)

I hear their screams
As they beg and suffer.
It’s not a dream.
Slowly you die from torture.

You run for cover as they approach.
Sentenced to die, firmly they grasp your throat.
There’s no escape now, the end will soon be here.
Victims left slaughtered, no signs of life appear.

Centuries of …. Centuries of blood.

No remorse in their eyes. Ignored are the cries, as the slaughter begins.
Soon there will be nothing left, just visions of death. Will this ever end?

Bow down to the centuries
As you drown in your own blood bath.
Bodies butchered and defiled.
Wiped out in the aftermath. (aftermath)

I hear their screams
As they beg and suffer.
It’s not a dream.
Slowly you die from torture.
