Track Name: You're Not Worth My Blood
On a winter's night so harsh and cold
Lifelessness has filled a human mold
In the vacuum of a fractured mind
Refuge is impossible to find

Trapped within this whole I've dug and built a world inside
Can I overcome what can't be masked with pain filled smiles

Senses poured out and unified
Pressure building. My hands are tied
Stare down. Into the ashes of once was
Perfection personified

On the wrong side of reality, I won't forgive what I can't forget
Your tyranny has come undone
The darkest days are still to come, but I refuse to bite my tongue
You're Not Worth My Blood

Stumbling a bloody wreck, fingers wrapped around the neck
On the path so straight and true, but where the hell are you
Sanity has been defaced with images I can't erase
The lifelessness within the mold has now begun to bleed

On the wrong side of reality, I won't forgive what I can't forget
Your tyranny has come undone
The darkest days are still to come, but I refuse to bite my tongue
You're Not Worth My Blood
Track Name: Revolution
Overpowered by those that contend
They've failed us and left us on our path to ascend
Past those of a higher mankind
They mold us and live on to breed
In their sea of lies

Use your power
To battle those that oppose us
Revolution
Exonerate those that had enough

Machinery is powered down for the day
The cogs and the gears are rusted and thrown away
Too long have they worn and decayed
They ravish and plunder and slay
Until you obey

Use your power
To battle those that oppose us
Revolution
Exonerate those that had enough
Track Name: Kill the Masters
Debilitated
Sweet love embrace
These things that you have loved,are in your way
A routine torture
Your bodies worn
One day you will learn, you were made for war

Come now my children
Lay waste to these
Maintain your discipline
And lose your empathy

Kill the Masters
Fight for thee
Follow us into your destiny
Kill the Masters
Watch them die
Let them grieve upon their genocide

Need only worship
Lady of spears
She will guide you on your path, your missions clear
Now wear your armor
Show them no fear
Spill the blood of our enemies and disappear

Come now my children
Lay waste to these
Maintain your discipline
And lose your empathy

Kill the Masters
Fight for thee
Follow us into your destiny
Kill the Masters
Watch them die
Let them grieve upon their genocide
Track Name: Blackguard
I tallied the strikes upon my bloodstained skin
The day extinction took you in
A life of reprimand to be chastised
Now fly alone through pitch black skies

Next thing you know (Next thing you know)
You're down below (You're down below)

I won't fear your possession (Now its over)
My vices feed my aggression (We'll take over, now)
No matter what I do, I can't seem to survive
I only need look inside the blackguard in your

All that is left behind is your disdain
Judgment lies upon your masquerade.

A rising storm ahead as I begin the trek to my unknown
Lands that still remain unseen
Dark it is indeed
The outcome of your vanity
Dethrone the king and come to life

I won't fear your possession (Now its over)
My vices feed my aggression (We'll take over, now)
No matter what I do, I can't seem to survive
I only need look inside the blackguard in your eyes
