Track Name: With This Ring
Lies were spoken
Trust was broken
After all that we’ve been through
I still want to trust you
But how can I forgive?
How can I forget?

Ring around this broken
Pocket full of promises
All fall down
Your vows turned to ashes
This is the dance

You can’t break the broken
You can’t break a broken man
You can’t bend unbending
You can’t bend unbending will
So this is the dance
Round and round we go
This is the dance
With this…

Ring around this broken
Pocket full of promises
All fall down
Your vows turned to ashes

Trust still broken
After all that we’ve been through
I still love you

Ring around this broken
Pocket full of promises
All fall down
Your vows turned to ashes
This is the dance
Track Name: A Flawed Design
The human kind, in full decline
Breaks down society
Bring to life the things you thought, the things you hold so dear
To me they’re just another case of lost identity

Division of the masses breaks my heart
The vision of the masses blinds my eyes

The human mind will never learn
From past mistakes
Pay the price. The price we pay is paid in pain
And all that’s left is just another case of mass conformity

Division of the masses breaks my heart

The flaw is in the design
Human nature overrides
The very best made plans
Of mice and men

Go!
Why don’t you
Let me live
I’m not ready to die
I’m not ready to let you live

The flaw is in the design
Human nature overrides
The very best made plans
Track Name: The Silent Man
Live
Living deep within
Living to pretend the pain was never really there
Fight
Fighting all your life
Fighting so that we don’t see it in your eyes

Break through!
Breaking through the static mold as you tear down the walls
And then you break the mold, you shoulder it all

Die
Dying deep within
Dying to pretend I see it in your eyes

No one knew
No one cared
Break him down, but no one cares
The silent man is always there
You break him down

Break through the walls of your own living hell
If the soul is a prison, tell me where we go from here

Break through!
Breaking through the static mold as you tear down the walls
And then you break the mold, you shoulder it all

Live
Living deep within
Living to pretend the pain was never really there
Fight all your life
Fighting so that we don’t see it in your eyes

Break him down, but no one cares
The silent man is always there
No one knew, and no one cared
The silent man was always there
No one knew
No one cared
Did his life or his death make a sound?
The silent man
Track Name: These Empty Fields
These empty fields
Now green with time
Cover the scars
Of life left behind

No white crosses
Or flowers to tell
The names of the missing
Or of those who fell

These Empty Fields
Hold your last breath

A shattered mind
A broken soul
If you survive
A life-long toll

"No man left behind"
That’s the line you’re told
Fighting for freedom
That’s how you are sold

Trade in your name for a number
Trade your mind for sand
Fight ‘til the death
Do you kill on command?

These Empty Fields
Hold your last breath

Blessed are the fallen
Whose bodies lie broken
Buried and crossed off
In these empty fields

Blessed are our fallen sons

These empty fields
These empty fields!
These empty fields are calling…me!
Track Name: Requiem Aeternam
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Return to Dust
What goes around must certainly come back around
If all things are connected, can mistakes be corrected?

Maybe not, but if so
You’d think we would know by now
Cycles repeating
Move fast, resource depleting
Of the earth, we are
Scraped by, so far
What we are, what we build
All is lost

We all must return to dust
We survive; how long?

Heed these words and despair
These works will last forever!
Epitaph in eternity
Monuments turned hollow shells
Dwell now in the land of dust!

I claim to be nothing
Nothing more than I am
Determination in a voice
We all have a choice

We all must return to dust
Withered lives move on

Heed these words and despair
These works will last forever!
Epitaph in eternity
Monuments turned hollow shells
Dwell now in the land of dust!

We all must return to dust
We survive; how long?
Withered lives move on

Heed these words and despair
These works will last forever!
Epitaph in eternity
In eternity
Monuments turned hollow shells
Dwell now in the land of dust!
Track Name: Desensitized
I have no regrets
I have no remorse

The flame, it burns at both ends
Now it’s my turn

I have become desensitized
Nowhere to run
You’re out of time

Deadly decline

I have become desensitized
Nowhere to run

Ignore the warning signs
There’s nowhere to run
You’re out of time

Let the cries hear you
Let their cries tear you
Let the cries hear you
Let their cries
Track Name: Erase
Confrontation; separation
Removal of church from the state
Brilliance fades as emotions fail
Too little - a little too late
How can you sit back watching it all unfold
Brace now for impact as you start to lose it all

Cannot withstand these let-downs again

When all I have done is erased in time
I think I know now what your angle is
And the way to stop you cold
Mono 'y mono is the way
And I can't find any other way to say
I will never, I will not be erased…Erase!

I have lived too long for all your condescension
I will not be putting you back on your shelf

But you always knew exactly what to say

When all I have done is erased in time
I think I know now what your angle is
And the way to stop you cold
Mono 'y mono is the way
And I can't find any other way to say
I will never, I will not be erased

All this time, I thought you could feel the sun
At least you should. Then you would never; never have to be alone

If there ever was a time when you backed your ass up on the line
And I thought maybe we had a chance
Though you knew we’d never last
I can't hold back or you would say I tried to get away
And I’ll grace you with a smile
You will be the extra mile

When all I have done is erased in time
I think I know now what your angle is
And the way to stop you cold
Mono 'y mono is the way
And I can't find any other way to say
I will never, I will not be erased

Now it's back on you
How do you like me now?
Now it's back on you…On you!
Erase!
Track Name: Holding On
This is my curse; self-inflicted
This is my will; struck down

Once more, pride caused my fall
To pick me up, that’s your call
You say I’ve had my chances
You say I’m never changing
Look inside
I’m bearing all I have
But only to the door you’re closing
Don’t walk away

No sleep tonight
I’m wide awake tracing all these shadows on the wall
Lying alone
I wonder if you’re cold out there, like your heart of stone

This is my; this is my self destruction
This is my; this is my self-inflicted

How much time will it take to heal?
‘Cause life’s too short
Regret, everlasting
Grief, too long
Each and every memory just like another wound
It’s time to heal
Time to heal!

And somehow all I hate about you is gone
And so now all that’s left is me dying to see you again

This is me; this is me when hope fails
This is me; this is me oh just barely
Holding on
Oh, just barely
Holding on

Never again to see your face
Never again to feel you

This is me; this is me when hope fails
This is me; this is me oh just barely
Holding on
Oh, just barely
Holding on
Track Name: Better Left Unsaid
You
Bet you left 'em cold

If I scream, would you understand?
If I break down, would you hold my hand?

You're not the only one who's lost his shining sun
You're not the only
You're not the only!

If I smashed the silence, would you hear me?
Or is it better left
Better left unsaid?

You
Bet you left 'em cold

You couldn't hear and couldn't see
I cannot breathe
When it's all lost; taken away
What's left to be?

You're not the only one who's lost his shining sun
You're not the only
You're not the only one who has lost all his life
Track Name: Forever Ends Tomorrow
Cut from the vein
Severed thread of life
Down fell a man
Cut to his core
Humbled and beaten
Humbled, beaten down
Up rose a sickening sound
His crushed, broken shell

You, me
That's how it used to be
No more, this time
Now I know you
Taste life
Sometimes it's bitter
That’s how you know
You know you’re alive

Take this moment, throw it all away
Take tomorrow, throw it all away

I cast these things aside
Make no mistake; I know you now
I see right through you
And how it's just a sick game of breaking lives
And now it's for the win

Take tomorrow, throw it all away
Take forever, throw it all away

For life would you throw me…?
For this moment would you…?
For life would you throw me away?
For this moment would you hold me down?

Take tomorrow, throw it all away
Take forever, throw it all
Throw it all away
Track Name: System Fails
Parasite!

Born to bleed the system
Fail to feed the system
Need to need the system
Live to leech the system dry

What do you do when the system fails?
Fall down, stay down

Parasite, always feeding
What do you do when the blood runs dry?
Fall apart, but that's ok
After all, we know it's just your way

Brick by brick
You’re building the walls to your own prison cell

Fall apart, but that's ok
After all, we know it's just your way
Point your finger with no discretion
But who's to blame when it’s at your reflection?

Not your fault
No, it was never, ever your fault
That's right!

Brick by brick
You're building the walls to your own living hell

Parasite!
The system fails
Parasite!
Crumbles before you
Parasite!
It's not your fault
Parasite!
Mediadore you

Fall apart, but that's ok
After all, we know it's just your way
Blame the system to no avail
But some would say that it was you who failed

Some play the victim for all to see
Some say the victim's society
