Track Name: Accupuncher
I'm looking down from a prison cell above the world
Locked in brainwashed and dislocated
The only thing that keeps me in my mind
Is hope I could be reaching the end
What I'm holding out for just could be
The very thing which will destroy me
But my self destruction almost seems
Better than this ungodly blue lit nightmare

Rain down and open fire
Waste away
Burn to life

Deformity, emaciation and the powerless
Have all been hung up for display
These images of distaste and sorrow
Are now burned into my mind
Lacerations, cuts, and burns with scars
Laid on the children of the third world
The things that sanity would never prescribe

Rain down and open fire
Waste away
Burn to life

Darkness
Is so bloody tempting
We could be free
From this asylum
An absence of foes
We are the damned
We could be weightless
We are disease

Im reprogrammed
And diffused
The cycle of waste
Is now complete
Track Name: Ol' Mighty
All hail the ol' might storm
Charts and positions distort
Dark force ahead
Navigation encumbered
Asphyxiation
Drowning in thunder

Souls of the deep
Rain down
As light fades
There is reason to think
That they wont be seen
As light breaks down
A shroud of dead sky comes to be
These messages are just
A sign of all of the matters to come

Depth has now lost its effect
Depth has now lost its effect

The eye of the storm
Is constantly watching me
Without a blink

The eye of the storm
Is constantly watching me
Without a blink

Enchanted eyes
Drawn to light
From darkness
A lure laid with fire
To bring it from night

Depth has now lost its effect
Depth has now lost its effect
Track Name: What Do We Call This Beast
How can we describe this
An ageless being of an ocean deep
It brings the voice of
Peril and distress
And leaves us frozen
Without strength and wits
or fear of treason

One eye open
Thousands shut
Locked in unholy
Machination

Stone hearts flaking
Into dust
A lack of faith
Burns in Distrust

What they've seen
Was only left
To be the work
Of Gods

Now make haste
We're standing in
A footprint
Half a mile wide

Endless cycles
Bring creatures from
Another space
Shoot them down
And break their skulls
Bring back a head
or lay yours down

Resist the time
Where your life
Will be absorbed
Its the size of
A whole world
Survival seems obsurd

One eye open
Thousands shut
Locked in unholy
Machination

Stone hearts flaking
Into dust
A lack of faith
Burns in Distrust

What they've seen
Was only left
To be the work
Of Gods

Now make haste
We're standing in
A footprint
Half a mile wide

Any day with
Crashing waves
Lurching on a
Black horizon

For all humanity
brings black
Rain and
A tooth of poison

Any day with
Crashing waves
Lurching on a
Black horizon

For all humanity
brings black
Rain and
A tooth of poison
Track Name: The Great Escape
Just awake to feel it
Come undone
There's no way
You'll let it fall from
The eyes
Upon a wall looking back
At all this time spent
Alone
Unto this world
As you feel that an exit is due

Can you feel this
Spacial tear
Pulling at you
By the wasteline

Push it back
Push it back

Its taking you from our world

Now its far too late
You've acertained
A new level
Of your life
Which is called
Just the entrance to end all exits

Can you feel this
Spacial tear
Pulling at you
By the wasteline

Push it back
Push it back
Its taking you from our world

With time you've weakened
Though you only feel
Stronger for death

To get back
To your life
Free yourself from the world

They wont show you
Where to walk
It's programmed
In your mind
The light shall remain
Turned off
til you open the door

Exist beyond the physical
Lights seen when you let go

Just awake to feel you
Shed your skin
It wont end it will
Only just begin

Lose perspective
Of all spacial awareness

Strange new shapes
And colors blending

Back to earth
Was way to fast
How many more
Not to come back
To this horrid place

Lose perspective
Of all spacial awareness

Strange new shapes
And colors blending
Back to earth now

How many more
Not to come back
How many more

Not to come back
To this hell

Not to come back
To this hell
