Track Name: THE CLARION CALL
Light up the fires; let your enemies burn,
I am the flame to your fuel
Mine is the eye that can see through your lies,
Carve it up, raise a glass to the sky
I am the one, not afraid of the gun,
Take your best shot I won’t blink
Nothing to prove, Fuck it open a wound,
I won’t be beaten I know, you’re going to fail

Darken the skies let the night hide our way,
I walk the way of the damned
Stalking the streets, ever facing defeat,
I’m the one who will burn through your soul
Always I see people staring at me,
Right in your face I appear
All that I say, broken bones I will pay,
You can’t destroy me you won’t, not now you...

Know, that I’m still here
Nothing is ever just quite what it seems!
No confusion,
I’ll be here forever more

All that I am, all that you see,
I will make you believe
No more excuses for you left to give,
I will never forgive

Feelings of anger have flowed through my veins,
Witness the carnage I bring
Forged in a flame is a venomous blade,
Let this engine of chaos now rise
Tempered with tears I have shed all my fears,
Echo this Clarion call
All that I see now the phoenix is free,
Rising against you again, now that you...

Know that I’m still here,
Nothing is ever just quite what it seems!
No confusion,
I’ll be here forever more

All that I am, all that you see,
I will make you believe
No more excuses for you left to give,
I will never forgive

Nothing is quite what it seems,
You’re living life in a dream,
You’ll never tell by my face,
You won’t destroy me,
You’ll never be part of me,
I won’t be beaten again!

All that I am, all that you see,
I will make you believe
No more excuses for you left to give,
I will never forgive!
Yeah, right, yeah, right, yeah, right!

Track Name: DARKNESS DRAWS ME IN
I’m here locked away
Imprisoned by the light of day,
I’m isolated
Constant tragedy is forcing me to break away,
I’m feeling so frustrated
Who writes the things we say & do?
My life is fated
Coming back for everything I’ve lost,
I apologise, but I still feel ashamed.

One more time I see the truth,
This time my eyes are open wide
One last time I beg to you,
I’m on my knees I pray to God
One more life I pray for,
One last time I step into the grave

Feeling nothing, as I hold my life again,
Feeling nothing, but your breath against my skin

I can’t take no more,
There’s nothing else I’m waiting for,
You’re gone forever
Ancient history is buried & away from me,
But still I will endeavour
To rectify this broken life,
Put it back together
I can’t take another moment in my head,
Isolation is a curse I don’t deserve

All this time I’m hanging on,
This rope is slipping from my hands
Dark Horizons yet to come,
I won’t survive here on my own
One more time I ask you,
One last time I’m taken from the grave

Feeling nothing as I hold my life again,
Feeling nothing but your breath against my skin
Taking something as the darkness draws me in,
This is not my way... Not my way

Terrified, I lost the ability,
To rectify mistakes of my past
But I know, inside, you’re the same as me,
I’m dead because...

You’ll never see the truth,
You’ll never understand,
You’ll never be the one,
Who will comprehend

In this void I’ll spend forever,
The game is done it’s now or never
Just one last chance to beg forgiveness,
‘cause this eternity is endless!
Rather Die! Never Give! Away myself! I wanna live!
Won’t give up on a dream,
Won’t lose another thing,
You wanna step on this heart,
Dissect & tear it apart!

Now you’ll finally see the truth,
This time I’ll break from everything
Now I know it’s all on you,
I’ll never doubt myself again
One last time I blame you,
One last time I’ll take you to the grave

Feeling nothing as I hold my life again,
Feeling nothing, but your flesh against my skin
Taking something as the darkness draws me in,
This is not my way... Not my way!

Track Name: BLOOD IN BLOOD OUT
(I feel they’re) Lost in time are the keys to my memories,
Am I lost or just alone?
Search my mind for a clue to identity,
Is this who I’m supposed to be?

Break through walls as fight through obscurity,
Domination is my goal
All the trials that are laid out in front of me,
You cannot bleed away my soul

And all of my friends are now my enemies,
There is no one to trust, I’m on my own
You look me in the eyes, only one thing left to do,
So bleed for me, like I bled for you

No, you’ll never know,
With no fear this is a certainty, I will break adversity
No, you’ll never know,
All this time with no one trusting me
I stand strong; I stand as one!

Open wounds still I fight with ability,
Bullets strike but I walk on
Lies exposed like my broken anatomy,
You cannot kill what I’ve become
Staring now in the face of oblivion,
Life escaping from your veins
I won’t stop never back down from anyone,
My broken past is now revealed

And all of my friends are now my enemies,
There is no one to trust, I’m on my own
You look me in the eyes, only one thing left to do,
So bleed for me, like I bled for you

No, you’ll never know,
With no fear this is a certainty, I will break adversity
No, you’ll never know,
All this time with no one trusting me
I stand strong; I stand as one!

Break me; you won’t succeed
Cut me; I just won’t bleed
Test me & you will see
Witness now what you’ve created!!

You say you hold the answers,
Well I say listen here
A past is lost, a time forgot,
The beast is all that’s left in here

You step in this arena,
You’re fighting for your life
But you’re the one that gave me cause,
Hand of God that bled you holds the prize

No, you’ll never know,
With no fear this is a certainty, I will break adversity
No, you’ll never know,
All this time with no one trusting me
I stand strong; I stand as one!
I STAND AS ONE!!!

Track Name: STRIPPED AWAY
Hollow out my chest & watch the blood drain from me,
Throw my heart into the ring & watch me bleed,
Take me apart, piece-by-piece
Until you’ve emptied every vein,
Post-mortem of my life with you, all that ever will remain

You’ve stripped my bones & now I see,
You fed from every part of me,
But there’s one thing that you can never take
So now I’m laying on your slab,
I wish for times I thought I’d had,
You will never take my heart away

Take a look into the flesh & tell me all that you see,
But can you justify your reasons to dissect me?
You hack & tear to find the facts
But you’re a stranger to the truth,
Now you’ve got your pound of flesh
Maybe I’ll turn the knife on you

You’ve stripped my bones & now I see,
You fed from every part of me,
But there’s one thing that you can never take
So now I’m laying on your slab,
I wish for times I thought I’d had,
You will never take my heart away

Take away this flesh of mine,
Break all the fragile pieces of my mind

You’ll never take me; no you’ll never take me away
You’ll never strip my life from me,
You’ll never break me; no you’ll never make a me stay
You’ll never take me away!

Track Name: DEMONOCRACY
You wanna hide all of the things I have learnt,
Put it aside & leave these fuckers to burn,
This is a kingdom of fear;
They won’t admit they are here,
This is a state of control; here to be seen & not heard

The way we fall from grace is more than we can take
The stories of this whole world are waiting to be told

The pain, the fear, the lies you told,
We’re only here to suffer
I hear them calling me, calling me, calling me home,
The curse, the hate, the truth unfolds,
Your resolve will falter
I feel the agony, calling me, calling me home!

You held us down; you plucked us out from the sky,
With hearts of fire we’ll find a way to survive
With just a moment of doubt
Their fucking time has run out
Empty and lost till the end;
Through this conviction we stand

And when they come to pray, a hero will rise again
The demons will know their time is destined now to end

He rises through the ranks of hell;
A legend born into the fold,
He’ll find a way to stay alive; his Demonocracy survives

With this I breathe the fire, then I smell the kill
You come together, from your throat your blood to spill
You can’t rule me with your lies, you lose control
I will strike you down; I fight with heart & empty soul!

He rises through the ranks of hell;
A legend born into the fold,
He’ll find a way to stay alive; his Demonocracy survives

Track Name: SHATTERED CROWN
A sick feeling’s got me running on empty,
All the shit that you put me through
Twisted pain won’t be forgotten,
Something that I never knew
Won’t regret it, won’t forget it,
Never let it turn me into you
This crown you’ve got me under,
Last thing you will ever do

This pain comes round again;
From something that you said

Every time that I get this feeling,
Pressure from this cross I bare
Forcing me to make decisions,
Pushing me into despair
Will I offend it? Will I defend it?
Once more I turn away from you
Throw down this wretched crown,
And break from everything I knew

This pain comes round again;
Just watch me walk away!
I won’t be forgiven; you won’t take me lying down,
Someone free me from your shattered crown
Your Crown! Watch me! Walk away!

Castles are made from the skulls of the damned,
Crushing the souls of the brave,
Washing their hands with the blood of the innocent,
Reaching for something that cannot be saved

This pain comes round again;
Just watch me walk away!
I won’t be forgiven; you won’t take me lying down,
Someone free me from your shattered crown
Far from your shattered crown ... I walk away!

Track Name: GATES TO OBLIVION
Instrumental.
Track Name: WRATH OF THE FALLEN
I wanted everything to come to me;
I needed to believe
I was doing fine; knowing that I could be free
Now I find myself standing here wishing I could stay
Won’t you talk to me? Why won’t you talk to me?

Don’t turn your back on me! Trust in me!
Call as I walk on
Strange duplicity, crushes me, no poetry or song
Deny! Defy! The fall of...
Time to find! Inside, but you’re still...
Broken; things around me stolen; all forsaken,
I’ll be here again, all my wrath unleashed tomorrow!

This feeling that I hold again, weighs me down
I have to take control of them; stolen never to be found!

I thought I had I all
But how could I have seen what was to come?
Future so unclear, fallen from destiny
Always focusing, analysing everything I’ve done
Won’t you comfort me? When will you come for me?

Don’t turn your back on me! You will see
Hell before I’m done!
Rage seduces me, possesses me, Wrath I have become

This feeling that I hold again, weighs me down
I have to take control of them; stolen never to be found!

I will break through the agony; You mean nothing at all,
I will fight for my destiny, no more excuses
With wrath you will fall!

This feeling that I hold again, weighs me down
I have to take control of them; stolen never to be found!

Track Name: CYCLE OF ADDICTION
Your aggravation, it’s so frustrating,
The way you look at me with such distain,
I wanna hear about, the shit you’re screaming out
I wanna count all of the ways that you look at me

You want the best of what’s inside,
But there’s no heart, there is no soul
You caused the rest of me to die,
Now I see!

And I feel like it’s some kind of twisted illusion,
I wanna break free
And I feel like it’s something inside of me,
That I feel for you

The hunger’s coming; no sense in fighting
One look from you & I’m addicted again,
My sweats are bleeding through;
I think I’ve come unglued,
Just let me count all of the ways that you torture me

You want the best of what’s inside,
But there’s no heart, there is no soul
You caused the rest of me to die,
Now I see!

And I feel like it’s some kind of twisted illusion,
I wanna break free
And I feel like it’s something inside of me,
That I feel for you

You want me… To decide…
But there’s nothing behind those eyes!

You want the best of what’s inside,
But there’s no heart, there is no soul
You caused the rest of me to die,
Now I see!

And I feel like it’s some kind of twisted illusion,
I wanna break free
And I feel like it’s something inside of me,
That I feel for you

Track Name: WITHIN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS
Look through the window & witness the world
Going round in a circle again
All of the freaks in a twisted receipt,
Of a planet that no longer cares
Constantly waiting, the world is debating
It’s now that you see my true face

I deny, I won’t try to argue
I won’t try to play by your rules
You decide, you wanted the monster
Well open up your eyes, the monster is already here!

Open the floodgates & set free the real hatred,
Lurking deep inside your soul
You have released me & set free the beast,
With my twisted demented control
No one can stop me, a poisonous entry,
The veins of the world are my goal

I deny, I won’t try to argue
I won’t try to play by your rules
You decide, you wanted the monster
Well open up your eyes, the monster is already here!

You maggots make me sick,
You’ll never understand me,
I am beyond good & evil, I will be avenged!
All tension, all hatred, all pressure disappears
I will be famous through history!
I can feel resistance breaking down,
Death will be my release!
I can hear their screams, but there’s no sound,
Through death I escape these walls,
This left hand path that I walk down!

No one can stop me, a poisonous entry,
The veins of the world are my goal!!

I deny, I won’t try to argue
I won’t try to play by your rules
You decide, you wanted the monster
Well open up your eyes, the monster is already here!
I’m here...I’m here...I’M HERE!!

Track Name: RISE THROUGH BABYLON
The fire inside it spits & snarls
And fights to find a release,
It burns through our veins!
This power source ignites a flame in us
That can’t be contained,
It’s breached the surface!

The fire compels you... You can’t resist,
Witness Babylon ablaze!

No Fear,
No doubt, just pure determination
Leads us to our goal
Break through;
Break out the fires of conviction
We rise through Babylon

With every soul we light,
We’ll scorch a path, paving the way
To domination!
Just let them try to put this out
And they will drown in our flames,
You can’t contain this...Fire!

We’re raging forward... Momentum grows
Witness Babylon ablaze!

No Fear,
No doubt, just pure determination
Leads us to our goal
Break through;
Break out the fires of conviction
We rise through Babylon!!!

Track Name: I STILL REMEMBER
You wanna know what the truth is
But you never use it,
You dance to the tune of your own lies
You’re a slave to disaster,
A stranger to laughter
Hide your deceit with blind eyes
You play with fire & you will burn!

Now I stand alone,
Stronger than I was that day
Now can you recall?
All the things you’ve done to me?

I still remember the hate inside,
The pain of yesterday,
It never goes away
I still remember!
My scars will fade,
In spite of what they say
I’m older, better, braver now,
And standing here today!

Can I confess to a feeling?
A thought is revealing
Exposing the truth to your green eyes
“Remember us when you’re famous”
As if you were blameless
For beating me down all the time

Now I see the proof,
Standing right in front of me,
You fall to your knees,
All remorse now fades away

I still remember the hate inside,
The pain of yesterday,
It never goes away
I still remember!
My scars will fade,
In spite of what they say
I’m older, better, braver now,
And standing here today!

I walk away!!!

All for you a childhood missed...
Like Jeremy, I made my list
You forced me underground
And I feel it falling down

Time means nothing when you’re in fear
Everything is so unclear,
This anger flowing through my mind

The very thought of you invokes imagination
I wanna know what’s in your head…
What’s in your head?
The life I’ve taken back,
I did through my convictions
Those empty words you tried to say…
Left me cold again

Flesh for flesh,
Eye for an eye,
This world was blind to me...

Flesh for flesh,
Eye for an eye,
It’s time for you to see...
Flesh for flesh!
The way you lied to me
I’ll show you all who I can be!

Go! Get up! Get out!
Go! I’ll show you all!
Go! Get up! Get out!
Come on! I’ll show the world!

Now I think as time has passed,
I think of all I’ve done,
The human race just slowed me down,
But I’ve already won.
Nothing ever goes away
The weight of my own past still on my shoulders....
My Shoulders... MY SHOULDERS!!!

I still remember the hate inside,
The pain of yesterday,
It never goes away
I still remember!
(You’ll never see the truth)
My scars will fade,
In spite of what they say
(You’ll never walk the line)
I’m older, better, braver now,
(Never see the end)
And standing here today
(This is my goodbye!)
My last goodbye!!

Go! Leave! Get Out!
Go! Leave! Goodbye!
