Track Name: Captured Vanity
Insecurity runs deep
Take more than what's ever known
Craving self reassurance
It's a drug of choice

Capture the image
A portrait of deception
Capture the image
Covered in shame

Coward, you hide the truth
Show us what is kept away
Keep up illusions that take the eye
Thinking this life is real when it is but a lie

Real self has faded away, true mindless insanity, captured by vanity

Liar, the time has come, reveal the truth
No more will you hide away
Thinking this life is real, it is a God damn lie

The images; all that remains when all is stripped away

Capture the image
A portrait of deception
Capture the image
Covered in shame
Track Name: Infested
Who do you turn to when the world turns to shit?
When the dead are free to roam the Earth
What will you do to survive, to protect the ones you love?
No one will stand in the way, try to take whats ours

Resurrection, infestation, has consumed us all

I have lost everyone I have every loved
Only strangers surround me

We’re all alone

Resurrection, infestation, has consumed us all

Death is around us
Sanity wears thin
Friends have lost their lives while others lose their minds

This disease has a hold of us all
Society is no more
Track Name: The Beast
A deafening roar heard by all the land
You better run while you still can

No trouble with fear
At the sight of this creature
Nothing can save you now, from becoming the prey

Fear the beast that stalks the night
Worship the beast, futile to fight

The beast is coming for you
The beast hunting for your blood

The vicious claws wrap and tear through the flesh
As victims cast to the ground

You better run while you still can

This is the end
Death is near
Take your last breath
You will die here
Track Name: Indoctrination
What is life if we cannot live?
Freedom's a lie if we cannot speak
Taking beliefs you have turned to facts
Control minds while they're still so young

You aspire to be something you are not
When will you realise you're just a plague to us all?

Democracy does not work when you silence the voice of a golden age

Repent the mistakes you have made and live your days in fear
Don't you know what you're fighting for, you're praying for blood

Indoctrination stands before my eyes
Take back our nation in the name of the Lord
Ostracised from society
Cast aside from normality

Repent the mistakes you have made and live your days in fear
Don't you know what you're fighting for, you're praying for blood
Track Name: Bazinga!
This is the life that you chose to live
Another reason for your downfall
You look down on everyone
And talk shit when you don't know a thing

How can you claim to love something that you helped destroy?
How can you be so blind to everything?

You act like you own the world
As if you're a fucking gift
You hide away behind your mask

You're a liar; hypocrite
Just another waste of space

How can you claim to love something that you helped destroy?
How can you be so blind to everything?

This world owes you nothing, you fucking maggot
I hate everything you stand for
You arrogant, backstabbing waste of space
Track Name: Somnus
Every inch of doubt runs through my veins
Convincing me that I've done wrong
I can't sleep while they're watching me
Back to the start, trapped inside myself

Every dream I've ever had is just a memory
Every restless night is just a dream

Another day in this nightmare
Another night without rest
I walk the Earth with all my strength drained from me

I've brought this on myself, there's a reason for this
I do not deserve this

Every time I close my eyes it's the same old story
The days and night seem so endless
In death I am still breathing
Track Name: Voices
Every action has a reaction
The seeds already been planted
He's laughing in my face and screaming in my head
She is none the wiser

I hear the story about a hundred fucking times
And it always ends the same
His blood will soon be mine

I know I should start again
I should have burned those fucking pictures
But I can't bring myself to accept

I remember the look in his eye
As I forced the blade into his chest

And I try to reason with these voices
So insecure and so weak inside of me

And after everything he's put me through I still died much too soon

Voices in my head pull me apart
Voices in my head still haunt me
Track Name: Carcass
Where is the key to your mind?
A locked door stands before me

Now open and receive, the fears have been fed
Manipulated by prejudice

Take a look; the fellow man, so scared and confused
Their lives devalued; sacrificed for power

Scapegoats outcast to the fire
The blame is so misguided

Can't you feel the restraints holding you down?

An open mind makes you feel alive
Acting this way it's yourself you've denied
An open mind makes you feel alive
By acting this way it's yourself you've denied

Now open and receive, the fears have been fed
Manipulated by prejudice and ignorance
