Track Name: Madman's Request
WELCOME TO THE END


Let's play a game
Who's more deranged?
I beg you please
For the air I breathe
No time to waste (What?)
I gotta get away
Rules to my game (You gotta be)
One percent sane!

(Here we go!)

Get off!
Shut up!
Enough!
The mind is truly lost!
The distaste
Of this place
Lock me the fuck away
Its the same, empty grace
Lock me the fuck away
Its time to play a new game

Who wants to play my fucking game?

Give me a reason
When I'm sick of trying
When all we share
Is we're both dying

Get off! (Get off!)
Shut up! (Shut up!)
Enough! (Enough!)
The mind is truly lost!
The distaste
Of this place
Lock me the fuck away
Its the same empty grace
Lock me the fuck away
Its time to play a new game

Push me to the wall, I cannot see
Hold me to the ground, I cannot breathe
Lock me up and throw away the key
All for just a feeling inside of me

(Inside of me)

~Guitar Solo~

No room to think
No space to breathe
I cannot retain
This clarity
I have this vision, will it destroy me?
Will it take this life, because of feelings
Inside of me?

Inside of me...
Track Name: Red XIII
HERE
COMES
THE
CLOWN!

Here we go again, come on down
Step right up and laugh at the fucking Clown
His face is funny and his hair is grey
He speaks with actions 'cause,
Words have nothing to say!

Is something breaking! (Or god forsaken?)
Can you beat the Jester at his own game?
Madman coming! (It keeps them running)
'Cause they can't beat the Jester at his own game!

So my conclusion, is disallusion
I'd rather slit my eyes that see you for the joke you are!
There are many cards to the deck
But I'd rather not play with the Joker

I know my game and the crowd can mock
But as long as I breathe, I will never stop

Is something breaking! (Or god forsaken?)
Can you beat the Jester at his own game?
Madman coming! (It keeps them running)
Cause they can't beat the Jester at his own game!

FAITH!
But what's the deal?
WHO GIVES A SHIT!?
When nothing's real?
I SEE WAR!
When I dream of lies
I see them
When I close my EYES!

(But it's not real,
'Cause it's not real)
'CAUSE NOTHING IS REAL!

Would you like me to entertain? (x2)

~Guitar solo~

Fuck this, bullshit you're telling me
If you're not my friend, then you're my enemy (x3)

Fuck this, bullshit you're telling me
If you're not my friend then I guess we can just go-

FUCK THIS- BULLSHIT YOU'RE TELLING ME
IF YOU'RE NOT MY FRIEND
THEN YOU'RE MY ENEMY (x4)

FUCK YOU!

IF YOU'RE NOT MY FRIEND
THEN FUCK YOU!
Track Name: Controversy
These times are dark....
Try to stop them and they'll take your heart
do they know who we are?
We are the ones who tread precariously
A Joke
I Choke
On the conflict, I cannot cope
Define
The Line
These are the choices of a reckless mind
Let's thrive on stereotypes
If you want to win, then be ready to fight!
I thrive on making you bite
My very being alone is to offend
Escape?
Too late...
You cannot kill what you love to hate
This cause, forever lost
Try to find new ways to make it stop...

!STOP!

It's so easy! (To go too far)
It's so easy, (To divide)
It's unappealing! (To end this farce)
I'm just revealing!
EVERYTHING THAT WE ARE!

(Hey) I don't know!
(Hey) I don't care!
(Hey) It was just a joke?
But where does it all go?
(Hey) An empty shell
(Hey) Endeavors swell
(Hey) Come look at me,
I bet you hate me?
(Hey) Hysterical!
(Hey) Collateral!
(Hey) So plain to see,
Controversy
(Hey) Hysterical!
(Hey) Collateral!
(Hey) So plain to see,
Controversy

No room for remorse
The war is lost, breach the gate
The imminent farce
You haven't felt until you've tasted the hate
This high, denied
Would you trust me if I told you I lied?
The joke, revoked
By my desire, to swing on a rope
We thrive on stereotypes!
I give in, I'm sick of the fight
Beware the hand that bites!
I'll never be this way again
Relate, the hate
Give me the time, and I'll escape
Your cause, is never lost
Trying to find new ways to make me stop....

But it's so easy! (To go too far)
It's so easy, (To divide)
It's unappealing! (To end this farce)
I'm just revealing!
EVERYTHING THAT WE ARE!

(Hey) I don't know!
(Hey) I don't care!
(Hey) It was just a joke?
But where does it all go?
(Hey) An empty shell
(Hey) Endeavors swell
(Hey) Come look at me,
I bet you hate me?
(Hey) Hysterical!
(Hey) Collateral!
(Hey) So plain to see,
Controversy
(Hey) Hysterical!
(Hey) Collateral!
(Hey) So plain to see,

Track Name: New Disease
PERFECTION IS A LIE!
False dreams are made of this
Pushing down on the hands of Christ!
Think twice before you lose your mind
Is there nothing to change this course?
This materialistic, pessimistic force
Call to arms, prepare to fight!
Or sell your soul, live this life...

We are Fire
We are Power
We are the essance of a Fucking Disease
No hesitation, no slow release
On our knees
GOD PLEASE!

(Let it stop!)

Hear the need,
As we burn and as we bleed
I can feel this aching in my brain
It never sleeps
It grows
As it feeds
Forever taking as it teethes
It's the beggining of an infestation
This New Disease

The idiot box will equate brain melt!
Thought process to conveyor belt
A false dream of reality...
A world to believe in magically!

(Let it stop!)

Hear the need
As we burn and as we bleed
I can feel this aching in my brain
It never sleeps
It grows
As it feeds
Forever taking as it teethes
Its the beggining of an infestation
This new disease

I THINK IT'S TIME FOR THE DEAD
TO RISE (Rise)

GOVERNING SYSTEM
YOU STOLE MY LIFE!
Govern to gain
BRING DOWN THIS REIGN!
The foundations to the Pillars of this State
I AM TO BLAME!

I am to blame

LET IT STOP!

Hear the need
As we burn and as we bleed
I can feel this aching in my brain
It never sleeps
It grows
As it feeds
Forever taking as it teethes
Its the beggining of an infestation
This new disease


You think you can take me,
You think you can break me,
Come on then lets see what you've got!
Track Name: Word
(Round 1!)

The anatomy of the fighting machine
The fight for survival, the right to feed
Makes the air run thick
And the blood run thin
This is the year of the angel
Driven on sin

So let me see your:

Head down,
Arms up,
Nothing-
Will stop me now!
Head down,
Arms up,
No motherfucker's gonna stop me now!
Head down,
Arms up,
Nothing-
Will stop me now!
Head down,
Arms up,
No motherfucker's going to stop me now!

Is it a lie,
Or is it fiction of my mind?
It's not the choice, to define my destiny,
it's this conflict 'round me...

AND
NOW
YOU'VE
GOT

Nowhere else to turn
And I'm a bitch to burn
Come on lets see you try
Lets see how fun it is to die!
Cause I can feel your hate
But have you got what it takes?
Or would you like me to wait?
Guess what motherfucker, you're too late!
It's the only way for us now
The way we figure it out
Primal takes the lead
It's me and you whose first to bleed?
Cause I don't have a choice
And I don't have a voice
I don't want to die
It's me and you lets see you try!

(Round 2!)

I'm an Anabolic
Murder Machine
I fight for survival,
My right to feed
The love for all that I am,
Drives this urge to kill
I am flawless in design,
With ability to heal!

So let me see your:

Head down,
Arms up,
Nothing-
Will stop me now!
Head down,
Arms up,
No motherfucker's gonna stop me now!
Head down,
Arms up,
Nothing-
Will stop me now!
Head down,
Arms up,
No motherfucker's going to stop me now!

Is it a lie,
Or is it fiction of my mind?
It's not the choice, to define my destiny,
It's this conflict 'round me...

AND
NOW
YOU'VE
GOT

Nowhere else to turn
And I'm a bitch to burn
Come on let's see you try
Let's see how fun it is to die!
Cause I can feel your hate
But have you got what it takes?
Or would you like me to wait?
Guess what motherfucker, you're too late!
It's the only way for us now
The way we figure it out
Primal takes the lead
It's me and you whose first to bleed?
Cause I don't have a choice
And I don't have a voice
I don't want to die
It's me and you let's see you-

TRY!

I don't have a choice,
I don't have a voice,
I don't want to die,
It's me and you let's see you try...
I don't have a choice,
I don't have a voice,
I don't want to die,
It's me and you let's see you try
i don't have a choice,
I don't have a voice,
I don't want to die,
It's me and you let's see you try!
I don't have a choice,
I don't have a voice,
I don't want to die,
IT'S ME AND YOU LET'S SEE YOU TRY!

~Guitar Solo~

I guess it's a lie,
This fiction of my mind
It's not the choice, to define my destiny,
it's this conflict 'round me...

AND

Nowhere else to turn
And I'm a bitch to burn

Track Name: Ghost
Instrumental.
Track Name: Monster
The eyes tell a thousand tales
The words they cannot match
To understand these concept
(Take a step)
And simply ask
When the scars are clear to see
(Yet covered well)
A voice, a broken tool that can only scream
For another way,
Another way...
Another way

But he comes without purpose,
Without reason, without need,
There is a blur to his vision,
This hollow sleep
He keeps the answers to his questions
Locked inside his keep,
For he,
Can't escape the festers of
This hollow sleep


He seeks (He seeks),
He searches (He searches),
He looks for more...
Another room, another door,
Another face, another pathway to a place
That is never sure
The skin is numb to the touch
A vacant swell
That never takes,
Never breaks,
Never, accepts his fate
As another day,
Another day...
Just one more day

That he comes without purpose,
Without reason, without need,
There is a blur to his vision,
This hollow sleep
He keeps the answers to his questions (Deep down)
Locked inside his keep,
For he,
Can't escape the festers of
This hollow sleep

I guess I'm just a Monster...
I'm a Freak
But I'll do as I please
'Cause I know what it is I am
So please,
Just let me be

I'm just
A monster, I'm a freak
But I'll do as I please
'Cause I know what it is I am
So please,
JUST LET ME BE

IM JUST,
A MONSTER
IM A FREAK
BUT I'LL
DO AS I PLEASE
CAUSE I KNOW WHAT IT IS, I AM
I KNOW WHAT THE FUCK I AM!
I KNOW WHAT IT IS I AM
JUST LET ME BE

I guess I know now what I am...
I know now, what I am
This is what I am
just let me be
Track Name: GTFOMB
I see...
No reasoning,
I can't take...
Another step

And for reasons
That seem unknown,
The failings of your equinimity
Must be
THE REASON I CANNOT SEE

What stares right at my face
But oh god I love the taste!
Did I forget to say?
What is collateral waste?
(Hey!) Why the fuck not, try my way
It seems there's nothing left to say!
To compensate for what I lack,
Just get the fuck off my back!

(G!) Get the fuck off,
(T!) Get the fuck off...
(F!) Get the fuck off,
(O!) Get the fuck off...
(G!) GET THE FUCK OFF!
(T!) GET THE FUCK OFF,
(F!) GET THE FUCK OFF!
(O!) GET THE FUCK-
(MB!) OFF MY BACK


Rolling downhill
Seems all the same,
But the road to nowhere
Is fun to play (Fun to play)!
It's all made up
Twisted ways,
The road to nowhere
Is fun to play (fun to play)!

And I see...
A fading light,
That takes...
My every breath

Give in
You'll never be the same...
It's calling
WHAT THE FUCK AM I MEANT TO BE!?

(G!) Get the fuck off,
(T!) Get the fuck off...
(F!) Get the fuck off,
(O!) Get the fuck off...
(G!) GET THE FUCK OFF!
(T!) GET THE FUCK OFF,
(F!) GET THE FUCK OFF!
(O!) GET THE FUCK-
(MB!) OFF MY BACK


Rolling downhill
Seems all the same,
But the road to nowhere
Is fun to play (Fun to play)!
It's all made up
Twisted ways,
The road to nowhere
Is fun to play (fun to play)!

NO MORE EXCUSE,
IT'S JUST A FACT!
I WON'T COMPENSATE FOR WHAT I LACK,
JUST GET THE FUCK OFF MY BACK!
Track Name: Ties (Bonus Track)
Why do we curse?
Why do we fight?
Is there a reason why?
The blood is there,
We Clearly care,
But venom still has his share

I'm no example,
As time has shown
I just want it to end
Please liberate
This wretch from within,
And let us start again

You can shred my skin to the bone,
It doesn't mean a thing
The path is filled with far deeper fraught,
It's the ties that bind that cant be brought

Nothing is ventured,
Nothing is gained,
From hostility
Is it normal,
Or rarity?
My mind plays tricks on me

But you can shred my skin to the bone,
It doesnt mean a thing
The path is filled with far deeper fraught,
Its these ties that bind that cant be brought

No room to reflect,
No space to breath,
Together till the end
There is no choice in destiny,
We'll never start again
