Track Name: Epic Doom
Epic Doom

A ha ha ha ha
Welcome to the show
this is what you came to see
a man that's lost all self control

you will not believe your eyes
and for the small price of admission
you will see a human being
on the brink of self destruction

look at how he's falling apart
at the seams
this is a man who has forsaken
all of his dreams

you can never be like him
you have friends family and dignity
have you taken all of this in?
such a freak of society

you can never be like him
you have friends family and dignity
have you taken all of this in?
Such a freak of society


Roll up, Roll up
it's time to get your money out

a ha ha ha ha
It's time to leave the show
you've had more than you bargained for
now it's time for you to go

there are many lessons here
and i'm sure you'll all ignore them well
I'm only selling entertainment
sympathy is on the shelf
Track Name: Broken Mind
Broken Mind

Wake up paralysed
See the man in disguise
No escape, roll your eyes
Nothing to run from, realise
It's you in there
False teeth, fake hair
No arms, no legs
Wake up you're dead

Wake up your dead
Wake up you're dead (x2)

In my mind, my broken mind
My broken mind
nothing can bring you back to life

My broken mind (x2)

Turn your face back to look at me
I'll be the last face that you see
I will turn your face into mine
I will leave nothing left to find

It's you in there
False teeth, fake hair
No arms, no legs
Wake up you're dead

Wake up your dead
Wake up you're dead (x2)

In my mind, my broken mind
My broken mind
nothing can bring you back to life

My broken mind (x2)

Turn your face back to look at me
I'll be the last face that you see
I will turn your face into mine
I will leave nothing left to find

What you fail to see
and what you'll never understand
is that you're the problem
you're like an all consuming cancer on this planet
whereas the serial killer, the mass murderer
the bringers of genocide and war
we're the cure
you're the problem
we're the cure

Aaaaaaaaaaarrrrrgghhhhhhhhhh
Track Name: Illusion of Choice
The Illusion of Choice

You're free to choose your deity
so choose well or you will go to hell
eternity is longer than you think
only time will tell if you have chosen well

While you wait you could donate your wealth
separate the heathen from yourself (x4)

Ask no questions, look in my eyes
every temple is a temple of lies
Making claims that you dare to deny
Bring your children and we will pluck out their eyes

Eternal suffering awaits anyone
who questions god's infinite love (x2)

You're free to choose your deity
so choose Well or you will go to hell
eternity is longer than you think
only time will tell if you have chosen well

While you wait you could donate your wealth
separate the heathen from yourself (x4)

Ask no questions and look in my eyes
Every Temple is a temple of lies
Track Name: Modus Operandi
Modus Operandi

This cage won't hold me anymore
First chance I get I'm out the door
Although I can't control myself
Don't need to be somebody else

My modus operandi must change
Cover my tracks, get away
Live a life of normality
Whatever that is?
Let me see

Get a job, settle down
Get a spouse, fuck around
Procreate, lose the plot
Covet what I haven't got
Abuse my body lose my friends
Do it time and time again
Spot the cycle, turn around
End up where I am right now

But is this such a bad place to be
If you are a man like me? Yeah

This cage is all in my head
The key is hidden
in the words I just said
Only I can set myself free
But I steel refuse to kneel
Track Name: Skin
Skin


Take your skin
and scrape it thin
To beautify
before climbing in
Tonight I dance
for family
for friends and lovers
now in me

Set me free

Set me free
from myself
let me be
someone else
cover me
with yourself
let me be
someone else

The skin you're in
is wasted on you
to rectify
I must remove

Tonight we dance
all as one
for all our trouble
is yet to come

Set me free from myself
let me be someone else
cover me with yourself
let me be someone else

Set me free
from myself
let me be
someone else

Set me free from myself
let me be someone else
cover me with yourself
let me be someone else

The skin I'm in
hey it isn't mine
to pacify
I'll do my time
Tonight I dance
in Solitary


Your friends and family
cursing me

Take my life
if that will help
to purify
and cleanse yourself

Tonight you'll dance
upon my grave
but all you've done
is set me free
Track Name: I Cut You Bleed
I Cut You Bleed


I cut you bleed
I come you breathe
I chose your body
I call you baby

Don't run away from me
I can see everything

You are a part of me
I can feel everything
I cry you burn
I come you burn
burn, burn, burn
Burn...yeah

I cut
you bleed

Don't run away from me
I can see everything
Don't run away from me
I can see everything

You are a part of me
I can feel everything
I cry you burn
I come you burn
burn, burn, burn
Burn...yeah
Track Name: Sleep
Sleep

Sleep keeps me awake
I lay and think
About the hours I’ve wasted
Drink gives me a thirst
And oh, what’s worse
Than simply dehydrating?
You turn me around
To face myself
What else should I be chasing?
Kiss me when I wake
And lay with me
It’s not so complicated

It's easy, easy when you spell it out
It's easy spell it out for me

Highs will make me low
Not much to show
For all the flavours tasted
Why would someone go
To all that length
To try to tame the tainted?
But I still believe
Without the need
To preach what we hold sacred
We are over dressed
I’m not impressed
So offer yourself naked

It's easy, easy when you spell it out
It's easy spell it out for me
Track Name: Dark Energy
Dark Energy

Aaaaaaaghhhhhhhhhhh

Feeling close to breaking down
Lift a glass
To toast the Crowd
You took me into the light
Then I check myself
And I'm freaking Out
When I met myself
Creature of the night
When I left myself
And my soul took flight
There was nothing else
Pure absence of mind

Just another natural
suburban disaster
with unrelated variation
Out to maximise a fraction
Of a so called life
Yeah, I'm aware of all my actions
So I do whatever I can
to stay away from altercation
Mental vegetation,
what exactly am I chasing?
Help me to evade the frame of mind
That had me wasting away
Help me calm down
Help me come round again

Being chosen to ignite
The ultimate self sacrifice

Just another natural
suburban disaster
with unrelated variation
Out to maximise a fraction
Of a so called life
Yeah, I'm aware of all my actions
So I do whatever I can
to stay away from altercation
Mental vegetation,
what exactly am I chasing?
Help me to evade the frame of mind
That had me wasting away
Help me calm down
Help me come round again

You didn't ask me to conform
to an idol prototype
I say what I mean
Not just what you like
I am the epitome of extremity and subtlety
Neatly Combined
What do you see when you look in my eyes?

I want you to rise
Track Name: Teeth
Teeth

Where are we now
Too late to find out it's who you know
Down in a hole
The raven circles
Silhouette against the sun

Silhouette against the sun

A ring is formed
Piece together what is lost
Crawl from a hole
The burden withers
Powder turns to dust

It's too late when you find
You're drinking with the devil (x3)

Where are we now
Too late to find out the nightmare's real
Swallowed whole
The raven circles
Silhouette against the sun

It's too late when you find
You're drinking with the devil (x4)

Where are we now
It's too late to find out
That it's who you know
That it's who you know
Track Name: Face of Grey
Face of Grey

I'll drink all day
If you let me
You can't walk in
With that face of Grey

You wait for nothing
You wait for what is real
Time waits for no man
Time waits for no man

You talk all day
If I let you
I don't know my mind
But you seem to

Run if you want to go
shit, into my mind
Everything that I said
No, Take it away
Time waits for no man
Time waits for no man


Go
Go
Go
Yeah I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna stay no

Go if you wanna go
Go if you wanna go
I can stop you
If I wanted too

It's alright

Don't point a pistol round here
If you wanna get out
Just go
I'm not gonna stop you
No
I just seen the papers say
I'm afraid
I'll sign my life away
I run into your arms
When you're my love charm
Track Name: Symbiotic Parasite
Symbiotic Parasite

You don't know
what you want
Breathing is
not enough
Why won't you
open up
Sing from your
broken heart

Say you're hungry but
you don't know why
I've got something
for your appetite
Open wide and
let me come inside
I'm the
symbiotic parasite

Open wide and
let me come inside
I'm the
symbiotic parasite

You don't need it
you don't want it
You did'nt have
the choice and
now you're on it
Don't want to eat it
don't want drink it
I didn't have
the choice and
now I'm in it (x2)

Say you're hungry but
you don't know why
I've got something
for your appetite
Open wide and
let me come inside
I'm the
symbiotic parasite

Open wide and
let me come inside
I'm the
symbiotic parasite

Shot you in the back
and make you
take the ride
taken all your money
and they took your pride
Stop you dead
no matter
how hard you tried
And now you're
running faster
to the other side (x2)

The other side x6
And now you're running faster to the other side

Say you're hungry but
you don't know why
I've got something
for your appetite
Open wide and
let me come inside
I'm the
symbiotic parasite
Track Name: Nihilist Dreams
Nihilist Dreams

Lose yourself, get used to it
There is but one escape

Sobriety
Abstinence
I hate to say
I think I tried it once
Never again
Never again

I woke up

Realise that
All of us are lost
The problem is
I wish that I was wrong
I don't like
What we have become
Can you help me?

Can you help me
to be complicated?
Can you help me
to be complacent?
You can blame me
for everything
Couldn't be anymore
than I blame myself

Can you help me
to be complicated?
You can blame me
for everything
Couldn't be anymore
than I blame myself
Couldn't be anymore
than I blame myself

Lose yourself, get used to it
There is but one escape

Abstinence
I hate to say
I think I tried it once

Never again
I woke up
