Track Name: Liberty In Death
Horror socialized, treated as verminous debris
Victimized with no cause and never to conceive

Actions full of shame, liberty in death
Sickening hypocrisy, liberty in death

SOLO

Civil disobedience ostracized, common sense dismissed
Gene pool piss, in confrontation, hopelessly at war with decency

Rotten from the outside, liberty in death
A life of misery, liberty in death

Uh
Ah

Cease to be, incarcerated
Final fate, crucifixion

Horror socialized, treated as verminous debris
Victimized with no cause and never to conceive

Actions full of shame, liberty in death
Sickening hypocrisy, liberty in death

Rotten from the outside, liberty in death
Liberty, liberty in death
Track Name: Shock Wave
Witness the fallout, nuclear burst
Heavenly sickness, no trace of life remains
Havoc and damage, contaminated
Light of destruction, through endless clouds of grey

Lacerating radioactivity
Shock wave, triumph of demise
Lacerating radioactivity
Shock wave, triumph of demise
Ah!

Worship extinction, no sense of guilt
Voice of unreason, the screams gone unheard
Wreckage and ruin, incineration
Blackest of rain, descending from the skies

Lacerating radioactivity
Shock wave, triumph of demise
Lacerating radioactivity
Shock wave, triumph of demise

Alpha, beta, gamma
Burning from inside
Vast consuming fires
Cleansing for all time

Fission eternal
A Lethal destiny
Terminal disruption
Global atrophy

Fission eternal
Lethal destiny
Terminal disruption
Global atrophy

Witness the fallout, nuclear burst
Heavenly sickness, no trace of life remains
Havoc and damage, contamination
Light of destruction, through endless clouds of grey

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh / Ah
Track Name: Capitulation
Past all hope, capitulation
All that was, never to come again
Things won’t change, we’re trapped in delusion
Machinery, beyond control, impossible to stop…

With trepidation, but widely opened eyes
Completely lost, so just why, should we even care?!

And on the edge of despair
Every drop of blood we’ll spill
Among the ruins of the past
Open-ended trails of blight

Beyond reclaim, no one to save us
All that is, burst into flames
We’re clenching the fist, screaming the inside
We’re in decline, unstoppably, no chance to survive

With trepidation, but widely opened eyes
Completely lost, so just why, should we even care?!

And every time we fail to see
What’s gone is gone, eternally
Yet our struggles will remain
Clear-sighted fall into decay

Capitulation
Capitulation
From loss we’ll rise…

And on the edge of despair
Every drop of blood we’ll spill
Among the ruins of the past
Open-ended trails of blight

And every time we fail to see
What’s gone is gone, eternally
Yet our struggles will remain
Clear-sighted fall into decay
Track Name: Pushed Too Far
Day in, day out
Pounding pressure, boiling hate
Chains of life hold you down
Mind's turmoil, enemy within

Pushed too far
Mental collapse, no way out
Pushed too far
In the grip of fear
Pushed too far
Anger rising, storm of stress
Pushed too far

Lost it all, lost control
Broken dreams, shattered hope
The tunnel’s end is black as night
Tripped again, one too many times

Pushed too far
All alone, dead end street
Pushed too far
Kill the fucking pain
Pushed too far
Break the circle, face the facts
Pushed too far
Pushed, pushed, pushed too far

Stumbling through the darkness, your dreams are passing by
Picking up a million shards of your former life
Pointless effort, empty prayers, no helping hand in sight
Aimless, hopeless, paralysed, waiting around to die

Uah!!!!
Your wretched soul
Your fucking wretched soul

Pushed too far
Downward spiral, deathbound path
Pushed too far
Burnt out hollow shell
Pushed too far
Road towards your certain end
Pushed too far
Pushed too far
Track Name: Distress
Anti-selection, critical risk
Chain of decay thrown into disarray
Prideful human disease, eager to please
In times of glut, into the pit, we’ll stray…

That’s how life goes, one direction, utter distress
Scapegoat rituals, another’s account, exist in utter distress

Altered perception, increasing debt
Signs collapse again, too obvious to see
Incurable sickness, affecting stability
With each passing minute, deeper and deeper in the shit

That’s how life goes, one direction, utter distress
Scapegoat rituals, another’s account, exist in utter distress

No guilt, no quarter
Exist in utter distress

Uuuuuhhhhhhh, days of grace
Uuuuuhhhhhhh, rise to fall

No guilt, no quarter
Exist in utter distress
No guilt, no quarter
Exist in utter distress
Uh
Go!

That’s how life goes, one direction, utter distress
Scapegoat rituals, another’s account, exist in utter distress
Uh!
Track Name: Days Gone By
Ultimate truth, silence, mark my words
Self-contradiction, how could I always disagree?
I spoke too much, but not my mind, not openly
Should have been listening, should have just tried to comprehend

In days gone by
Anxiety would last forevermore
I won’t cave in
This life of grief is not for me

I clean the dust off my face
Looking for answers in the here and now
Soon I will know what to say
Wishing you well, wishing that I could stay

Ultimate truth, silence, mark my words
Self-contradiction, how could I always disagree?
I spoke too much, but not my mind, not openly
Should have been listening, should have just tried to comprehend

In days gone by
Anxiety would last forevermore
I won’t cave in
This life of grief is not for me

Uh! Hey!

Horrible sight, dead cold stare in the face
But then again I’m just a face in the crowd

So let it be written, let it be done
Deeds, not words, all along
So let it be written, let it be done
Deeds, not words, all along
All along
Uh

In days gone by
Anxiety would last forevermore
I won’t cave in
This life of grief is not for me

I make my own destiny
I make my own destiny
