All Hope Is Gone

The state of the nation, violation
A broken promise is as good as a lie
The hell is humongous, the devil's among us
And we will burn because we won't unite

We won't witness anymore freedom
What does anybody do we need 'em?
I would rather fight than let another die
We're the problem but we're also the solution

All hope is gone

If you want you cannot take it from me
If you think you can you still don't know me
Let me tell you, when I said it I meant it
And I will always have the right to defend it

Fifty seconds, a hundred murders
The bill of rights is a bill of sale
What will you do when the war is over?
What will you do when your system fails?

We have made the present, obsolete
What do you want? What do you need?
We'll find a way when all hope is gone
We've seen the fall of the elite
Bury your life, sink your disease
We'll end the world when all hope is gone

We have made the present, obsolete
What do you want? What do you need?
We'll find a way when all hope is gone
We've seen the fall of the elite
Bury your life, sink your disease
We'll end the world when all hope is gone

The wretched are the wounded
The hungry starved to death
At a place where no-one goes
The air itself is a final breathe

So discontinue
The antiseptic cash charade
As the cry of justice comes
I'm gonna let this fire free

I am the reason your future suffers
I am the hatred you won't embrace
I am the worm of a pure distinction
I am the remedy, spit in my face

All your lies and wars are out-dated
All your subjects are dulling mind games
I can let all of another million reasons why
But doesn't matter when the only thing will never die

We have made the present, obsolete
What do you want? What do you need?
We'll find a way when all hope is gone
We've seen the fall of the elite
Bury your life, sink your disease
We'll end the world when all hope is gone

We have made the present, obsolete
What do you want? What do you need?
We'll find a way, we'll find a way when all hope is gone
We've seen the fall of the elite
Bury your life, sink your disease
We'll end the world, we'll end the world when all hope is gone

When all hope is gone
When all hope is gone

Butcher's Hook

Contrite - Commercial - Arrogance - Leprosy
Consume The Bitch - The Fucker - Mindless - Like A Child
For Pity's Sake - I've Had All That I Can Take
We Try - But In The End We'll See
There Are No More Codes
Only Who Is Shit / And Who's Still Free
I was gonna change the world with Honor and Aggression
No one listened - no one cared
All they saw was misdirection

GO AHEAD AND DISAGREE / I'm giving up again...

I DON'T WANT YOU ANYMORE
I DON'T NEED YOU ANYMORE
Fingerprint of God / Your new religions covet
This vessel wasn't built to last
But I will live forever/ you'll never have to say surrender
Because you're so part of it
My total honesty has no place for Tomorrow
Guilty pleasures give me pain
Tell my people I CAN'T FOLLOW

GO AHEAD AND DISAGREE / I'm giving up again...

You'll never CENSOR me / You'd better CHERISH me
My REASON has a voice / Freedom's gone but we'll always have a CHOICE
My PRESENT FUTURE TENSE / It doesn't make much SENSE
I'm coming after you / FUCK YOU ALL I'M THE ONLY POINT OF VIEW

Violence and Dollar Signs / Another processed piece of shit
You hide your fault in DIAMONDS and give away the only
COST - you can't delay the inevitable
LOST - don't understand the incredible path
I'm losing ground - but I won't care when I go down

GO AHEAD AND DISAGREE / I'm giving up again...

I'M GIVING UP AGAIN

Child of Burning Time

...The Child of Burning Time...
...The Child of Burning Time...

My only consolation is a LIE
The Apex of my Consequence is dying here tonight
Winter hasn't ended and it always looks like rain
I can't remember anything...

Inside the Absolution, we Succumb
And appetites are bittersweet
I think I'm going NUMB
A chance to give up Avarice has marked my one regret
The Child of Burning Time is Gone
He hasn't come back yet...

Before I tell my story, please consider who I am
I missed my window years ago
I'm doing all I can
A tragedy is commonplace, but in the end they go away
My skin is still the only stain I'm left to wear in shame

I cut my name into my heart
I'll tear it all apart
I Beg You... Burn Me Away...
I won't become your hero just to fight the life I save
Burn Me Away...
I won't give up tomorrow just to lose it all today
I Burn Away... (4X)

My isolation is my course
The effect it has on life itself
is a cancer on its source
I rue the moments spent between
the Fetish and the Flame
Until this war is over, I won't ever lose my rage

I cut my name into my soul
I guess I'll never know
I Beg You... Burn Me Away...
I won't become your hero just to fight the life I save
Burn Me Away...
I won't give up tomorrow just to lose it all today

Burn Me Away...
I won't become your hero just to fight the life I save
Burn Me Away...
I won't give up tomorrow just to lose it all today

Dead Memories

Sitting in the dark, I can't forget.
Even now, I realize the time I'll never get
Another story of the bitter pills of fate
I can't go back again
I can't go back again
But you asked me to love you, and I did.
Traded my emotions for a contract to commit
And when I got away, I only got so far
The other me is dead
I hear his voice inside my head
And we were never alive
And we won't be born again
But I'll never survive

With dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart


You told me to love you, and I did.
Tied my soul into a knot and got me to submit
So when I got away, I only kept my scars
The other me is gone
Now I don't know where I belong
And we were never alive
And we won't be born again
But I'll never survive

With dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart

Dead visions in your name
Dead fingers in my veins
Dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart

Execute.

It appears that we have reached the edge
That zenith where stimuli and comatose collide
Forty years ago the man proclaimed
The age of the gross to be upon us
And even though the man was destroying our heritage
And insulting our intelligence

That era has become very real
We labor for pleasure and abhor the guilt of pressure
My generation will go down as the architects
Of contemporary disgust

Some have fought and died
Others have allowed the strong to be butchered for a price
They themselves don't care about and will never understand
I myself am beleaguered by the selfish face
Of a kind of man that is not mankind

Distrust in information
Fundamentalism of opinion
Catastrophic boredom and a fanatical devotion
To that which does not matter

Where is your glory now, people?
Where are your Gods and politicians?
Where is your shame and salvation?
You rage for no reason because you have no reason

What have you ever fought for?
What have you ever bled for?
The face of the earth is scarred with the walking dead
The age of the gross is a living virus

This is the future you have created
This is the world you have set ablaze
All your lies are coming true
All freedom is lost, all hope is gone

Gehenna

Do you believe? Do you fade like a dream?
Let me hear you breathe, let me watch as you sleep
The sparrow?s eyes promises shift into judgments
I cannot deny that you were designed for my punishments

The blood and the body control the cut so it?s seamless
Show me your heart, show me the way to complete this

(Tethered)
To a scene I
(Treasure)
Can you help me?

I
(Sever)
God, it?s perfect, it?s
(Never)
Really perfect
Now I can finally be myself 'cause I don?t want to be myself

Free my severed heart, give me you, I want it
(I don?t want to be myself)
Free my severed heart, give me you, I want it
(I don?t want to be myself)

Free my severed heart, give me you, I want it
(I don?t want to be myself)
Free my severed heart, give me you, I want it
(I don?t want to be myself)

I cannot maintain a semblance of normal anymore
I?d rather feel pain than try to fit in with you anymore
I?ll throw it all away like everybody else
I can finally be myself 'cause I don?t want to be myself

Free my severed heart, give me you, I want it
(I don?t want to be myself)
Free my severed heart, give me you, I want it
(I don?t want to be myself)

Free my severed heart, give me you, I want it
(I don?t want to be myself)
Free my severed heart, give me you, I want it
(I don?t want to be myself)

Free my severed heart, give me you, I want it
(I don?t want to be myself)
Free my severed heart, give me you, I want it
(I don?t want to be myself)

Free my severed heart, give me you, I want it
(I don?t want to be myself)
Free my severed heart, give me you, I want it
(I don?t want to be myself)

Gematria (The Killing Name)

12/08/73, that was all I got and now you got me
All I ever really wanted was to take the blame
I will go down in history and not down in flames

Meningitis, I will survive this
Dry sockets and a schizophrenic crisis
The time of the nine has begun
Get out of the way or you will suffer as one

This is so typical, apocalyptical
Hanging on abysmal release, Jesus
I don't need this, don't wanna be this
Icon in the making, my hands are fucking shaking

What if God doesn't care?
What if God doesn't care?

Remember, surrender, the time is now
Continue, we're in you
And we will burn your cities down

America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left, nothing's real

Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down

What if God doesn't care?
What if God doesn't care?

America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left, nothing's real

Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down

Down, we will burn your cities down
We will burn your cities down
We will burn your cities down

Feed the hungry, feed them shit
Feed them bones and politics
You wanna revolutionize?
Be specific and believe your eyes

Start a war in another backyard
And we'll destroy your house of cards
Give me a minute and I'll change your mind
Give me a bullet and I'll change your life

Remember, surrender, the time is now
Continue, we're in you
And we will burn your cities down

America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left, nothing's real

Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down

Down, down, we will burn your cities down
Down, down, down, we will burn your cities down
America, what if God doesn't care?

Psychosocial

I did my time and I want out, so abusive
Fate, it doesn't cut, the soul is not so vibrant
The reckoning, the sickening
Back at you, subversion, pseudo-sacred, pyscho virgin

Go tell your classes, go dig you graves
Then fill your mouth with all the money you will save
Sinking in, getting smaller again
Undone, it has begun, I'm not the only one

And the rain will kill us all
If we throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see
The preservation of the martyr in me

Psychosocial, psychosocial, psychosocial
Psychosocial, psychosocial, psychosocial

Oh, there are cracks in the road we lay
From when the devil fell, the secrets have gone mad
This is nothing new but would we kill it all
Fate was all we had

Who needs another mess, we could start over
Just look me in the eyes and say I'm wrong
Now there's only emptiness but I'm missing something
I think we're done, I'm not the only one

And the rain will kill us all
If we throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see
The preservation of the martyr in me

Psychosocial, psychosocial, psychosocial
Psychosocial, psychosocial, psychosocial

The limits of the dead!
The limits of the dead!
The limits of the dead!
The limits of the dead!

Fake and defenseless lie
(Psychosocial)
I tried to tell you first
(Psychosocial)
Your hurtful lies are giving out
(Psychosocial)

Can't stop the killing
(Psychosocial)
I can't help if it's hunting season
(Psychosocial)
Is this what you want?
(Psychosocial)
I'm not the only one

And the rain will kill us all
If we throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see
The preservation of the martyr in me

And the rain will kill us all
If we throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see
The preservation of the martyr in me

The limits of the dead!
The limits of the dead!

Snuff

Bury all your secrets in my skin
Come away with innocence and leave me with my sins
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again

So if you love me let me go
And run away before I know
My heart is just too dark to care
I can?t destroy what isn?t there

Deliver me into my fate
If I?m alone I cannot hate
I don?t deserve to have you
Ooh, my smile was taken long ago
If I can change I hope I never know

I still press your letters to my lips
And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss
I couldn?t face a life without your lights
But all of that was ripped apart when you refused to fight

So save your breath, I will not care
I think I made it very clear
You couldn?t hate enough to love
Is that supposed to be enough?

I only wish you weren?t my friend
Then I could hurt you in the end
I never claimed to be a saint
Ooh, my own was banished long ago
It took the death of hope to let you go

So break yourself against my stones
And spit your pity in my soul
You never needed any help
You sold me out to save yourself

And I won?t listen to your shame
You ran away, you?re all the same
Angels lie to keep control
Ooh, my love was punished long ago
If you still care don?t ever let me know
If you still care don?t ever let me know

Sulfur

My guilt and my shame
Always sell me short, always feel the same
And my face and my soul
Always wear me thin, always under control

But the longest hours you?ll have in your life
Are the ones you sit through to know if you?re right
So I?ll wait but I pray that I'm wrong
Because I think I know what?s going on

So let me get this straight
The only will is my own
I do whatever I want and stay alone
All my decisions make it untouchable and tainted

I'm gonna suffer for the rest of my life
But I will always find a way to survive
I'm not a failure but I know what it?s like
I can take it or leave it or die

Stay, you don?t always know where you stand
Till you know that you won?t run away
There?s something inside me that feels
Like breathing in sulfur

My life is undone
And I'm a sinner to most but a sage to some
And my Gods are untrue
I'm probably wrong but I'm better than you

And the longest hours I?ve had in my life
Were the ones I went through to know I was right
So I'm safe but I'm a little outside
I'm gonna laugh when I'm buried alive

Stay, you don?t always know where you stand
Till you know that you won?t run away
There?s something inside me that feels
Like breathing in sulfur, like breathing in sulfur

Like breathing in sulfur
Like breathing in sulfur

Stay, you don?t always know where you stand
Till you know that you won?t run away
There?s something inside me that feels
Like breathing in sulfur, like breathing in sulfur

Stay, you don?t always know where you stand
(You don?t always know where you stand)
Till you know that you won?t run away
There?s something inside me that feels
(There?s something inside me that feels)
Like breathing in sulfur, like breathing in sulfur

Like breathing in sulfur
Like breathing in sulfur
Like breathing in sulfur
Like breathing in sulfur

This Cold Black

Mother Nature is a Coward (Mother Nature is a Whore)
No More Presence / No More Power (I pray for death, by the hour)
Cut Another Smile Into Me (Into ME is All You Are)
My Artifice won't Recognize Me (You won't find me)... Anymore

Post-Traumatic War Machines / The Pessimists still won't believe
Throw away my past mistakes / It's all I came to feel
Let my weapons be your CHILDREN / Let my armies be your DAMNED
Try to suffer on in silence / TRY TO STOP ME IF YOU CAN

Til We Die

My friends are all hurting from moments and regrets and charity laced with a lie
And still we keep hoping, to fix all the defects and strengthen these seminal ties
We go on together for better or worse, our history is too real to hate
Now and forever we stay until morning, and promise to fight for our fate

'Til we die
'Til we die

The start of the journey is every bit worth it, I can't let you down anymore
The sky is still clearing, we're never afraid and the consequence opens the door
I've never stopped trying, I've never stopped feeling like family is much more than blood
Don't go on without me, the piece that I represent complements each and every one

'Til we die
'Til we die

We won't be forgotten, we'll never give in
This war we've achieved has allowed us to win

'Til we die
'Til we die

My last true confession will open your eyes, I've never known trust like the Nine
Let it be spoken, let it be screamed, they'll never ever take us alive

'Til we die
'Til we die

We won't be forgotten, we'll never give in
This war we've achieved has allowed us to win

Carry on
Carry on

We'll never be broken, we won't be denied, our war is the pressure we need to unite
We'll never be broken, we won't be denied, our war is the pressure we need to unite

'Til we die
'Til we die

We won't be forgotten, we'll never give in
This war we've achieved has allowed us to win

Carry on
Carry on

We'll never be broken, we won't be denied, our war is the pressure we need to unite

'Til we die
'Til we die
'Til we die

We won't be forgotten, we'll never give in
This war we've achieved has allowed us to win
We'll never be broken, we won't be denied, our war is the pressure we need to unite

Vendetta

I know my uses, I have my pride
But my heart is still untamed
I learned my lessons, I?ve conquered death
I go on and I?m unashamed

I?ll paint your bones to match my eyes
They?re the darkest I have ever seen
Until I?m lucid I can?t be told
I know my voices, they tell me to believe

Another fucking accident out of control
All the attitudes will never change
My imitations are leading the way
I can?t accept that I still don?t find this strange

In light of my ability to feel denial
I walk away from everything with just a smile
The agony of coming home has gone away
It?s everywhere, it?s everyone, it?s everyday

Are you ready for the time of your life?
Are you ready for the time of your life?

I beg your pardon, I?m out of the way
A new conspiracy has taken my place
So over and over I smell the decay
Believe what you want to, the cycle stays the same

In light of my ability to undermine
I walk away from apathy, I?m feeling fine
The agony of cynicism beckons me
It?s everywhere, it?s everyone, it?s everything

Are you ready for the time of your life?
Are you ready for the time of your life?
Are you ready for the time of your life?
Are you ready for the time of your life?

Let?s pretend we?re not at the end
Pretend that we have nothing left
Let?s pretend we?re not at the end
Pretend that we have nothing left

Let?s pretend we?re not at the end
Pretend that we have nothing left
Let?s pretend we?re not at the end
Pretend that we have nothing left

Are you ready for the time of your life?
Are you ready for the time of your life?
Are you ready for the time of your life?
Are you ready for the time of your life?
Are you ready for the time of your life?

Let?s pretend we?re not at the end
Pretend that we have nothing left
Let?s pretend we?re not at the end
Pretend that we have nothing left

Vermilion Pt. 2 (Bloodstone Mix)

She seemed dressed in all of me
Stretched across my shame,
All the torment and the pain
Leaked through and covered me.

I'd do anything to have her to myself,
Just to have her for myself.

Now I don't know what to do,
I don't know what to do
When she makes me sad.

She is everything to me,
The unrequited dream,
The song that no one sings,
The unattainable.
She's a myth that I have to believe in,
All I need to make it real is one more reason.

I don't know what to do,
I don't know what to do when she makes me sad.

But I won't let this build up inside of me.
I won't let this build up inside of me.
I won't let this build up inside of me.
I won't let this build up inside of me.

A catch in my throat, choke,
Torn into pieces, I won't. No.

I don't want to be this but
I won't let this build up inside of me (won't let this build up inside of me) x4

She isn't real.
I can't make her real.
She isn't real.
I can't make her real.

Wherein Lies Continue

THOU SHALT NOT
Kill your Fathers - Destroy another Life
Question everything we clung to for years
Live Forever - Design a Better Death
Confuse a liar with a savior from fear
Create a Myth and Separate the Chosen Ones
Adolescent Independence / Dominion
I only wanna believe in fuckin' anything
But now my conscience is contradicting everything

THE ENDING'S THE SAME / THE WORLD WILL NOT CHANGE
THE ANSWER IS CLEAR...

Tell your Mothers they have no Sons or Daughters
Blame yourselves because your Children are Mine
We are Orphans, but we are not Forgotten
And we will find a way to save us this time
We can run, but we are tired of running
We're dropping seconds in a glass 'til we die
We only wanna believe in fuckin' everything
But we're alive and we're not accepting anything

THE ENDING'S THE SAME / THE WORLD WILL NOT CHANGE
THE ANSWER IS CLEAR... ANNIHILATION

I won't control or restrain things I do not understand
Now I realize I'm STRONGER BETTER
They gave to me now I give to you the means to burn the thoughts I had
Now I realize I'm STRONGER BETTER MORE

WE HAVE TO SAVE OURSELVES

I will never become another piece
Inside the Paralytic Construct I hate
Live Forever? Well, I would rather die
At least I'd know I wasn't theirs to create
This is yours, but you had better choose
Before they take away your right to decide
I guess I'll never believe in fuckin' anything
But my solace is I CAN HANDLE EVERYTHING

THE ENDING'S THE SAME / THE WORLD WILL NOT CHANGE
THE ANSWER IS CLEAR... OBLITERATION

I won't control or restrain things I do not understand
Now I realize I'm STRONGER BETTER
They gave to me now I give to you the means to burn the thoughts I had
Now I realize I'm STRONGER BETTER
I won't control or restrain things I do not understand
Now I realize I'm STRONGER BETTER
They gave to me now I give to you the means to burn the thoughts I had
Now I realize I'm STRONGER BETTER
MORE

WE HAVE TO SAVE OURSELVES
