Track Name: Mr. Sadist
I've been hearing something whispering in my head,
That "You're all worthless, and all should be dead."
I wanna be pure, I wanna be clean
But he tells me to stop living in between

You'll try to make me the reason to blame
For all the things, that make you insane
For the rest of days, you'll never be the same
You left the room as soon as in I came!

I am above and you are below me
You'll never find a safe way to control me
I live inside your head, and you hate it
And if you want my name
Just call me Mr. Sadist

Don't deceive yourself, there's not a pill you can take
To quietly silence me, cause it is far too late
Many people say that you're just losing your soul
Just wait to see what they say when I am fully in control

I'm coming for you now, for now it's time to see
The darkest part of you is the brightest part of me

I want to apologize for what he has done
I fought real hard, but you know that he won
I can't simply run away, now I'm coming undone
He whispers in my ear
"This has only just begun"

Chorus:

So you'll do what they voices tell you to do
You don't wanna fight it any longer
Duality is stretching against all remains
Becoming one will make you stronger
It's not giving up, just giving in to the fact
That you'll never again be sane
So just give your life into my embrace
And I'll take all of your pain away

You are above and I am below
Everything you said really must have been true
No reality, sanity is overrated
Signed by his marked, is written Mr. Sadist
I tried to run, but I know I can't hide
From the simple truth about what's inside
I didn't fit the frame, so I guess I'll just break it
Tonight you and I will become Mr. Sadist

You are above,
You are below
You are above
You are below
I'm covered in blood
I know what to say
Just fill me with drugs
And lock me away
Track Name: Immortal
It's 6PM, as you're turning on the news
This just in, another psycho killer on the loose
The TV man is trying to find something to blame
The crowd goes wild, and all remains the same

Chorus:
What's left inside, after you take away the pain?
Cause now I know, truly, this will never change
So take my rifle, on my arrival
Cause I'd rather die, than spare your lives...

No...
No...
No...
I can't believe it's come to this

I guess you could say I have nothing left to lose
I've lost all I loved, in painful years of abuse
All my life, I just wanted to do something right
So now it's settled; I'll make my mark tonight

Chorus:
What's left inside, after you take away the pain?
Cause now I know, truly, this will never change
So take my rifle, on my arrival
Cause I'd rather die, than spare your lives...

There's not a way to save your soul
When your hearts turned frozen cold
There's not a thing left for me here
So now I'll take my final chance
I'll make a difference
This I swear

(And suddenly, the remaining grips of morality disintegrated right before my very eyes,
as I realize, there's not a single ounce of your sympathy to be repaid
I will be born again, in the darkness of this night
Because even if I die, my name will live forever...)

So save your prayers
Cause you'll need them for where you're headed
Your friends will see
You and I in headlines tonight
It will be telling them
What I looked like when you first saw me
About the tragedy, death of 33,
And a world who never wanted to care

You are the ones you created me
Born and raised in your apathy
Isn't it sad, I had to spill blood
Just for you to give a fuck?

Don't beg, you won't get a second chance
To ease your troubled minds, wash your ridden conscience
You won't forget me, so don't even try
You'll remember me by the cold look in my (eyes)

I surrender,
But remember,
I'm not sorry,
I'm immortal now
Track Name: Limbo (Unabridged)
These walls have never felt so thin
And I can't explain the state I'm in
Does the higher road seem to be fading?
Cause I've found myself in dire straits
My sympathy matured to hate
This man inside, has tasted your poison wine

Now I can only say, I saw this coming,
But was our "love so strong", only built on bricks of sand and dirt?
If I had the chance to make a wicked choice,
I'd pray the headlines would be stained, but the kids would still rejoice.

Don't tell me you don't have the time,
Cause I'm watching the clock tick by
This whole charade that you had made left no one fooled at all
It's hopeless, you're worthless
I don't need your love, I'm moving on
So if your god sends me to hell,
I know I'll see you there as well

Is there words to say what I've become?
These thoughts seem to hide away from the sun
But in this moonlight, it's all in limbo
The feeding dirt is starting to taste poor
and I've long forgot what my dreams stood for
So I'll try to compose myself, and pour another glass

But I sleep well at night, cause in my dreams
I got my hands tightly round your neck, when you are screaming at me
So in the end, tell me what's it gonna be?
I'll laugh the day you find a mirror and see
You're just like me!

Don't tell me you don't have the time,
Cause I'm watching the clock tick by
This whole charade that you had made left no one fooled at all
It's hopeless, you're worthless
I don't need your love, I'm moving on
So if your god sends me to hell,
I know I'll see you there as well

Now let's get something finally straight
Your life won't end in a pleasant way
So just close your eyes, and take your bitter pills, because I'd love to watch you choke
I find it funny, looking at the mess we made
Circling the floor, a sycophant display
If I payed in love, you'll pay with blood

My patience is starting to wear thin,
I'd say it's time for us to begin
I took the beating, of looks deceiving
I'm strong, my hands withered to the bone
In time I learned I'd rather live alone
So if you took my hand, and said you want to be with me
I'd say "I'd rather be fucking dead"

So now my hands are soaked, and now the curtains close
With a needle injecting fatal dosage of overdose
How can your body, hung from the ceiling like a ghost, be such a sexually suggestive, sweet display?

Don't tell me you don't have the time
Cause I've watched your veins run dry
With every note, this song I wrote, is now your curtain call
It's hopeless, you're worthless
I don't need your love, I'm moving on
So for now I'll bid farewell
Until we met again in hell...
Track Name: 2084 (The New Paradigm)
I'm so sick and tired of always hearing the same lie
That 9-5 slavery is the only reason for my life
If I speak out of turn, they will cut out my tongue
I'm not just a number in a machine, that controls everyone

So dare to speak, cause you'll break the system
And the party standing could start to cave in
Cause only your thoughts can break the facade
That your entire life is just a mirage

I'll be the blemish on this model face of disgrace
I'll be those words of truth, that you can't bear to taste
I'll be the voice of change, so why can't you do the same?
It's time for the new paradigm

You can't put us in a box, and say we're dead inside
For I know from these words that you say, we're the only ones still alive
So don't try to tell me resistance isn't part of existence,
Because I'll never do a thing you say

We'll rise up one day, and you'll see
We'll burn your big brother down until we're free
We will rewrite the modern typical
Because our sanity is not statistical

I'll be the blemish on this model face of disgrace
I'll be those words of truth, that you can't bear to taste
I'll be the voice of change, so why can't you do the same?
It's time for the new paradigm
They might try to make me the person on the Telescreen
Some enemy of the state, who resurrected Goldstein
But they will never shut me up, they can't make my single thoughts a crime
It's time for the new paradigm

I can't pretend that I am not a human being
I can't be calculated in my thinking
And if I die, I know these words will all live on
We can change the world if we all remain strong
So let them know they're wrong
Soon they'll hear our voices from the streets say

You may control today
But not the next or before
We won't hear and sing along
To your Hate Songs anymore
I refuse to live inside a world
So fucking artless
So we shall meet again in the place
Where there is no darkness

I'll be the blemish on this model face of disgrace
I'll be those words of truth, that you can't bear to taste
I'll be the voice of change, so why can't you do the same?
It's time for the new paradigm
They might try to make me the person on the Telescreen
Some enemy of the state, who resurrected Goldstein
But they will never shut us up, they can't make our fucking thought a crime
It's time for the new paradigm
Track Name: So Below (ft. Eric Stadler)
Well, it's now such a cliche, but needs to be said
The world only cares if you're pretty, or dead
If you don't fit in the standard mold, you'll find you're hated and feared
I hide all my weakness, each a skeleton in the closet
But could I break open this shell, and be honest?
When I speak of it, all the words just seem to be plastic...

How much more do they think I can give
Until I'm just bones on the floor?
Pull me closer to the edge
And yet somehow they'll still want some more
Why does it seem we get on our knees
For those who push us to the ground?
How can one just let it go,
When you're cursed
And So Below

I prayed and I prayed, until my spirit decayed
How could one be left with nothing, and nothing left to blame?
And when I needed God the most, I found he wasn't around
So I learned to just sedate, it couldn't feel much worse
I wear all these masks to throw you off my course
I can't figure out, if it's you or me, I'm hiding from

How much more do they think I can give
Until I'm just bones on the floor?
Pull me closer to the edge
And yet somehow they'll still want some more
Why does it seem we get on our knees
For those who push us to the ground?
How can one just let it go,
When you're cursed
And So Below

I won't be a victim
I won't be a waste
I won't give my life to prove your wicked case
I'll accept the hate, you say I deserve
I'll accept the hate, you say I deserve
I won't be a victim
I won't be a waste
I'm sick of your slander, get out of my face
I accept the hate, you say I deserve
I accept the hate, you say I deserve

But when you die, please just know
We're waiting down below

You say I'm unholy, but what does that make you?
Track Name: A Final Moment of Clarity
...The smoke is finally beginning to clear
and beyond this sense of existence, I hear the call
of what turns men into kings and killers...
Yet I am not afraid.
I once feared the depths; now I have become one with them
In this final moment of clarity
I will wear this mark upon my face
Until the end of the world...

This moonlights rising high
What a perfect time to say goodbye
I guess you finally heard the news
That I'm locked up from you mental abuse
Again, and this pain will never end
This world's too much, nobody cares
I was never meant to be happy here

So now that I've made my mark tonight
It's time to leave a make it right
But I'll miss you so,
I'll let you know
What it's like
On the other side
