Track Name: Credulity
Flashes of pouring flames
Tame the light
Runs down through my veins
Tame the light
Thrills taking the reins
Feel the rush of Spectralight

Scenes before my Eyes
Blur your sight
Perception made of lies
Blur you sight
Corruption of our Minds
The Effect of Spectralight

What do you think you see?
Too Fast, To Grasp, The Truth, The Ruse is far too Great
The Past, the mass, dreamscape, from which you cannot break

A shimmer is revealed
Shine too Bright
Blindingly perceived
Shine too Bright
Reasoning is hurried
Through the lens of Spectralight

The Madness rages on
Lightning Strike
Twitching lids spawned by the
Lightning Strike
You’ll be forever torn
There is naught but Spectralight

What do you think you want?
The Lust, the Must, Distort, you seek to fill your greed
You’ll bust, and rust, but never get what you truly need

The endless blinding lights
Together blur to white
Alone, darkness remains
In the midst confusion’s gained

The canvas at your feet
Lose the fight
Layers of deceit
Lose the fight
The past is buried deep
In the mist of Spectralight

Death awaits us all
End in Sight
You’ll see it as you fall
End in Sight
To the light you crawl
Cavalcade of Spectralight
Track Name: Selfish Ride
Ducky goes fishing in the pond
Fetches his meal all alone
No meal to get only regret
Shot in the sky to forget

Die Die Die, Solo Pride
Die Die Die, Selfish Ride

Darkness is all that remains
Got a ticket to the single lane
Step into the unknown free from fears
Pushing daisies to a torrent of tears

Toad man goes hopping by the lake
With Slimy skin and his fear of snakes
Both Terrorized and despised
Seeking a fresh start Nagas denies

Die Die Die, Solo Pride
Die Die Die, Selfish Ride

Darkness is all that remains
Got a ticket to the single lane
Step into the unknown free from fears
Pushing daisies to a torrent of tears

Wheat cutter makes his claim
Greet the cloak only to reek of shame
Your ways have robbed you of the piece of eight
Seek redemption, but it’s far too late


Die Die Die, Solo Pride
Die Die Die, Selfish Ride

Darkness is all that remains
Got a ticket to the single lane
Step into the unknown free from fears
Pushing daisies to a torrent of tears
Track Name: Conformity
Look through the tinted shell
Perceive yourself, can you tell
So comfortable and yet so frail
Your feeble mind tells the tale

Dare not cross my sight
Speak not your delights
Rotting Innards naked to me
Your Diluted reality

Snake Oil Salesman
The potion is your soul
Riches, fame and land
Always full but never whole

Grit your teeth
Lost beliefs
Ideals to Spleen
Dim self esteem

On the run day and night,
Too yellow to face your fright
Cowering behind the mask
To your skin it will latch

Mirror cracks when you pass by
Torn ‘cause you live your lie
The real you screams in pain
Pleads for life in vain

Grit your teeth
Lost beliefs
Ideals to Spleen
Dim self esteem
Mother’s Womb
Social Tomb
You decree
Conformity

Little sheep hidden in the flock
Stray away or be forever stuck
Little sheep in the mass you hide
Only way your mind can survive

Grit your teeth
Lost beliefs
Ideals to Spleen
Dim self esteem
Mother’s Womb
Social Tomb
You decree
Conformity
Track Name: Humanity
Breathe in, for the first time
And reign supreme
Pray tell, creature sublime
Who owns the air you breathe

The weak outlive the strong
The demented are running free
Rules state that murder's wrong
War serves humanity

We bleed, we scream

Extinction prime to defecation (kills us from within)
Bleeding eyes blur your vocation (the dark within)

First sight upon the world
Already deja-vu
Life streams around you swirl
Succubus, hold your nature true

Decay at your finger tips
The golden touch you wield
It spreads Devastation
wither away our fields

Extinction prime to defecation (kills us from within)
Bleeding eyes blur your vocation (the dark within)

March upon the skulls of your ancestors
Cover the shards in the blood of wars
Plow amber fields with your offspring
Forgetful grasp to your grave they bring
Eyes open yet eyelids closed
Unable to tell friends from foes
Eyes open yet eyelids closed
Scorched earth to a tear that froze

Through Ashes, life can spring
let the Phoenix take wing

Extinction prime to defecation (kills us from within)
Bleeding eyes blur your vocation (the dark within)
It kills us from within
Humanity is the sin
Track Name: Creatures of Hate
Since the dawn of time
Humans have walked the earth like the blink of an eye
Despite our meager existence
We are the primary source of maleficence
Dragging a trail of filth in our footsteps
The notion of survival an elusive concept
Our true nature we fail to negate
Murder death and killing born in and from Hate
Ensure our impending doom, at an ever-increasing rate
Anything to nurture our darkest trait, our darkest trait

Why do you, why do you hate?
Why do you, why do you hate?
Why do you, why do you hate?
I can’t see
Why don’t you, why don’t you break?
Why don’t you, why don’t you break?
Why don’t you break from
Your believes?

Constant smoke from the barrels of guns
Frothing mouths of our daughters and sons
Know not where the real danger comes from
Or in which damn direction to run
We are torn to shreds as we wet our beds
Locked away in the safety of our own psychological sheds
Grumbling and barking at anything of harmonious state,
Our rigidity never up for debate
Transcend our animal ancestors as we create
The pure depiction of creatures of hate, Creatures of Hate

Dust and dirt kicked into the air,
Hits your eye and you cry in despair,
The stench of death pinches your flare
Charred relics of our world left bare, world left bare

Why do you, why do you hate?
Why do you, why do you hate?
Why do you, why do you hate?
I can’t see
Why don’t you, why don’t you break?
Why don’t you, why don’t you break?
Why don’t you break from
Your believes?

Through the retched smog that poisons us,
We perceive our kin as envious,
And treachery is what we advocate
As we artfully regress to mad rabid primates
Rabid primates, rabid primates

Blood of our closest dripping from our fangs
We took the bait, embodying the perfection of Hate
Blood of our closest dripping from our fangs
We took the bait, embodying the perfection of Hate

Why do you, why do you hate?
Why do you, why do you hate?
Why do you, why do you hate?
I can’t see
Why don’t you, why don’t you break?
Why don’t you, why don’t you break?
Why don’t you break from
Your believes?
Why do you hate?
Why don’t you break?
Track Name: Boaster
You imposter
Boaster

State of mind, mind at stake
Humility’s a mistake
Property above all
Will be your downfall

Greedy blood, won’t stay your hand
Nothing meets your demand
Flaunt what you love the most
And boast the disease you host

Can’t heal
Fake Heart Beat

Better than the rest
Better than the best
When the lead is lost
Deny it despite any cost

Pinnacle of your ideal
Eludes that which is real
Speak the liars tongue
Conviction ever so strong

Can’t heal
Fake Heart Beat

You imposter
Boaster

Emperor clothes on skin
Blind eye perceives your sin
The wise sees through your grin
Grotesque soul with raised chin

Can’t heal
Fake Heart Beat
Don’t wanna feel
Your Heart Beat

You imposter
Boaster
You Imposter
Boaster, Boaster, Boaster, Boaster
