Track Name: Begotten
Begotten by hatred
Falling victim to your lies

In this age of ruin
I've seen you come and fucking go
Your time- grinding with wage
Your life- riding the blade

Drowning in your agony
Hanging in the balance
Repetitions of emptiness
Rusted wings will fly with doubt

The solace found in breaths of sin
Only filters reality
Your soul will be shattered
By the hammer of greed

Drowning in your agony
Hanging in the balance
Repetitions of emptiness
Rusted wings will fly with doubt

Your fucking money is blood
Your blackened ego is loveless
Your precious time has withered
In mourning contempt

Your games are over
Track Name: Vatican
Another replica of a saint
Drinks the cup of denial
I've felt the earth shake
With thoughts of you

Scrape your knees, as you kneel
As your king smashes your skull

I see your flaws
One winged beauty
Bleeding on the cross
Can you save me?

Another replica of a dog
Bites the hand of justice
I've seen your world choke

By my hands
By my fucking hands
Track Name: Barely Breathing
A frail disguise rusting as you weep
You bury me as you gratify-

Your means of hunger
Your emptiness
Your envy to suffer

Everything you love preys on lunacy
Keep me in vain and kill my dreams

Cut me back
Keep me gray
Stitch my wounds
By your veins

I gave you everything yet war meant nothing
To you, I'm broken and guilty

Everything you love preys on lunacy
Keep me in vain and kill my dreams

I'm not here
Out of body
All is silent
As I twist your fucking neck

I'm barely breathing
You play god fed on broken ties
Burning skies reflect in my eyes
Track Name: Shiver
A memory of a fire
Suspended by your touch
From the ashes we made love,
But I could never say that was much

Her illustrations paint me dead
By the lust that drapes my conscience

As I suffer, will you numb my pain?
Dying in your loving silence
As I suffer, will you numb my pain?
With lips like sin
As I suffer, will you numb my pain?
I shouldn't care this much
As I suffer, will you numb my pain?

I'm tired of bleeding out for someone else's wound
Will you make your bed in someone else's tomb?

Now don't come back

A memory of a fire
Suspended by your touch
From the ashes we made love,
But I could never say that was much

I'm bathing in dismay
I'll shiver to hold my sanity
Frozen and withered for days
Just to know that I'm not crazy

Shiver

As I shiver, will you kill my suffering?
A kiss of death, with lips like sin
Track Name: Sanctuary
The masses praise a war
Preaching murder in the name of progress
...and I cared too much

I've felt you die a thousand times
Find yourself counting back the days
With a knife in your throat
Abandon the love you have made
In this life as a dying dog race

Punish me for what I know
But I can't look away
(From your dying faith)
Punish me for what I've done
But I can't look away
(I'm not the only one)

Wire from which you tread
Hangs your tolerance
Never know what this meant
Suffer the cycle of friends

Punish me for what I know
But I can't look away
(From your dying faith)
Punish me for what I've done
But I can't look away
(I'm not the only one)

This love cut short
From truth and greed
Fuels the flame
Found so deep in me

Who the fuck can count on you?
The sanctuary burns for the true

I can see it in your eyes
You don't want a part of this
I can see it in your eyes
You never wanted a part of this
