Track Name: Hellbound
You've lost all control.
How will you answer for all of the things that you've done?
I can feel your breath at the back of my neck.
Darkness grips to your mind, and crawls through your skin.

I see through the smoke, walk through the burning embers of hate and anguish.
I feel the fire growing inside me.
You'll never learn.

All you do is take.

And now you've had your fill,
taken what you wanted from us,
Consumed the last of our hope (have you no remorse?),
I know you're hellbound.

You'll never learn.

But I see through the smoke, walk through the burning embers of hate and anguish.
I feel the fire growing inside me.
You'll never learn.

I scratch away at my eyes to stop the blistering.
Your poison in my skin, I’ll bleed you out.

I claw and I tear 'til you seep out of me. The lies and the stories mean nothing to me. Draining the world to replenish yourself, you're a leech, you're a waste. Get out of my mind.
Track Name: Forsaken
I've tried to see the beauty in your crimes, but did you ever think of us?

No, I refuse to leave the world the way you left it for us.
You have forsaken your children.

Generation after generation, left with the waste of the past.
We face the consequence, we face the facts.
We live in the shadow of a broken age.
We live with the problems while you left without a trace.

Is this all I'll ever be?
The shadow of a broken dream.

We are forsaken.

We are forsaken, destined to live with this.
We are forsaken, doomed from birth.
Track Name: Break the Mould
Push aside the unnecessary; there's only so much you can hold.
Think of the difference we can make if we fight for something more.

We are the last chance, the single hope for advance.
We hold the key and we can build a better land.
The only restriction is our misplaced fear, what does the future hold? That's for us to decide.

Break from the mould.
This is not the way that it should be, living in such hypocrisy.
See the world for what it really is and become the minds rebuilding it.

Searching through the ruins, we carve our own potential.

What does the future hold? It's in the palm of your hands.
Break from the mould.

We may not change their minds, but our words will stand the test of time.

How could you know what I am?
How can you speak for us all?
You cut the ties and left us in despondency.
Holding us down, pulling us back, suffering more and more - you turned away and left us with disparity.

They say don't think, don't feel - but I'll never kneel.
Track Name: Illusive
Building, twisting, the illusion that we're in control.
They pull the ground from our feet, and watch as we fall into the depths.

Time has taken its toll on me.
I've searched for the answers but they're so far from my reach.
You tell me all is well when you know we live in a broken system.
They show the dark in this world, but we will never see the light.

I have witnessed enough; the blood is on your hands.

We've caused a reaction, now watch the deception unfold.
The blood is on their hands, the blood is on your hands.
Track Name: The Divide
Grasping at straws, we cannot seem to find our way out.
I see the world divide right in front of me.
I fight it, I deny it, but now I've come to realise that the truth about us is we're all misguided rats in a box.

To think for yourself is to hang by yourself.
To speak the truth about this greed and wealth will drag you under the side that lies and fools for a dime, the ones who purposefully manipulate others to better themselves.

We all make the choice.

We all make the choice, one of two things.
The question is are you a victim or villain?
Whichever path you take decides the price you will pay.
I'd rather fall right through than bow my head to you.

I won't give in until I know there's not a single soul who washes away in a tide of dismay, is living a life tailored for their decay. We're throwing away our potential to build a world where we flourish and follow our will. We try, we survive, but we could fly if only we'd save this withering world where...

Track Name: Nescient
Born without a chance of success.
They've led you into a path of numbness.
Torn away from the power to direct what you think and what you feel, with our backs to the wall we've sent you into a cloud of mind sickness.

Destroying the earth in the name of your god.
We suffer for your mistakes.
Stuck in a crime filled hive, justified by a lie lost in time.

What type of person does it take to discard their own humanity?
You're spineless. Abiding by the outdated rules forced on us.

I can't give up, and I won't sit back as a full civilisation reduces their own people to ash and dust.

I won’t stand by, condemning the children to die.

Too long I've watched you tear their hopes away.
You are but a plague, inflicting pain and suffering.
I long for a day when we are moral and just, but some presence of mind will tell you - that day will never come.

Ah, but our time is almost up.
If we were to rectify our mistakes, the chance has passed and long since gone.
Track Name: Prosthetic Eyes
If only you could see how I see, feel what I feel.
Prosthetic eyes, unhinged minds.
Living in a clockwork existence, portraying balance where there's none.
How can we breathe in this cold reality?

I see the world crumble beneath the hands of tyranny.
I feel the grief of the families torn apart by our own greed.
We will rise up from the ashes, and put an end to this.
They say the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

I have to believe we were meant for more.

We will rise up from the ashes and put an end to this.

How can we breathe when we're surrounded by chaos?
The more we lie to ourselves, the more we sacrifice to the will of the world.
Have we not lost enough?
Track Name: The Way Back
Can you hear it knocking at your door?
Do you feel the presence you can't ignore?
Are you afraid to walk away?
Welcome to the lie, the land of 'prosperity'.

Blinded by our own ignorance, we've followed this path for far too long.
The dormant feeling of indignation has been our true motive all along.

I stand before the scourge of life, encapsulated in the darkest mind.

Fear the end, for it is within our grasp.
Will you stand by and watch as everything we know slips through our fingers?
There is nothing left but to watch the world burn.
Watch it burn.

Can you hear it knocking at your door?
Do you feel the presence you can't ignore?
Are you afraid to walk away?
Welcome to the lie, the land of 'prosperity'.
How many people will suffer?
How many people will take?
Will there ever be a moment where I say - we are not wasting away.

We are vessels in time, carrying the weight of all mankind.
It's not too late to change, we've lost our way, but we can find the way back.
