Track Name: The Beast Within
Hear it growling deep in my core
I’ve turned into what I can’t be
Cannot cage it in anymore
The monster lives inside of me

Steadily corroding my soul
Demonic suffocating grin
It’s getting out of my control
I feel it move beneath my skin

The beast within
Feeds on your sin
Release the fiend

I can’t stop this venomous thing
Vindictive eyes watch every move
It’s getting overpowering
A ruthless doom I didn’t choose

No forgiveness for setting free
This evil creature’s foul abuse
Born in the darkest side of me
The beast is finally breaking loose

The beast within
Feeds on your sin
Release the fiend

Hear it growling deep in my core
I feel it move beneath my skin
It’s getting out of my control
The monster lives inside of me

No forgiveness for setting free
A ruthless doom I didn’t choose
Born in the darkest side of me
The beast is finally breaking loose

The beast within
Feeds on your sin
Release the fiend
Track Name: The Haunting
(Left behind) Flash of light
(Wander blind) Hold you tight
(Cannot find) Too weak to fight
(Peace of mind)

(Lost in time) Cast aside
(Can’t define) Undenied
(This decline) Strange nowhere ride
(It ain’t mine)

Seize me
Save me
Find me in the dark

(Going home) I am near
(Not alone) Feel me here
(Flesh and bone) Touching your fear
(Hard as stone)

(Bleeding eyes) Can you see me?
(Crippling cries) Can you hear me?
(Lingering lies) Answer my plead
(Terrorized)

Seize me
Save me
Find me in the dark

(Voices cry)
(In the night)
(From inside)

(Frightening feel) Paranoid
(Cold as steel) And destroyed
(Urge to kill) Caught in the void
(So surreal)

(Too much strain) Blood to shed
(Deadly pain) Go ahead
(Gone insane) Meet me instead
(Shoot my brain)

Seize me
Save me
Find me in the dark

(Voices cry)
(In the night)
(From inside)
Track Name: Time To Die
It's now you're time to die

Kill for thrill is just 'cause you want to
The need to feel your rage is inside you
One can only keep what's desired
You deal you steal you peel the people's right to strive
Can't stop to cope the hate deep inside

Bring yourself to shame, you just don't stop
The game you play, you'll pay when you drop
Your name you praise through all time
No chance your reign will stand in a fight
Give up, you're stuck, you won't last your life

They won't cry no more
They won't die no more
You think you can live just like the god you're not
Why?
You lie
Just die

It's now you're time to die

The death you spread will come upon you
The greed you plead will end very soon
The beast in you will decease
In time you'll pray until you're no more
The end is near you'll be dead and torn

They won't cry no more
They won't die no more
You think you can live just like the god you're not
Why?
You lie
Just die

It's now you're time to die

The strength you wield is gone and weakened
The fear you feed will bleed oh so quick
Recognize your demise
You'll fade away and be claimed a prize
It's bleak, it's weak, its what fate decides

They won't cry no more
They won't die no more
You think you can live just like the god you're not
Why?
You lie
Just die
Track Name: Keep On Moving
(Don’t break before you try)

Can’t recall how I got here
Everything was spinning round, spinning round
Somehow I just kept on walking
I will go on ‘till I can’t breathe

Pushing hard to keep on moving
No regrets to hold me back, hold me back
Shaking off this growing numbness
I won’t wait for life to come and humor me
(Rise)

You know how roaches cringe
You know how vermin crawl
Just keep on moving at a sturdy pace
Your worth above it all

I will not bow down to arrogance
I am proud of what I have achieved
Being righteous comes at no expense
I will not consign my dignity

I will stand and keep on moving
No one will walk over me, over me
Charge ahead until I’m bleeding
I don’t need no one to set me free
(Ride)

You know how roaches cringe
You know how vermin crawl
Just keep on moving at a sturdy pace
Your worth above it all

(Don’t break before you try)
Cast aside what I don’t need now
Leave behind what slows me down, slows me down
I have learned what keeps me moving
This race is between myself and I
(Rise)

You know how roaches cringe
You know how vermin crawl
Just keep on moving at a sturdy pace
Your worth above it all

I will keep on moving
Just keep on moving at a sturdy pace
I will keep on moving on
Just keep on moving, keep on moving on
Track Name: Urban Tribes
Join the urban tribes

Watch us move like we belong
Fighting fire with amity
All together we are strong
We’re the voice of reason
United for this dream
Take a step, take your place, stand free
They will not silent our song
Make yourself be heard now

Urban tribes

Always wanting to forget
Things we didn’t want to learn
Marching for what we regret
Gives us power to turn
Into what we should’ve been
Take a step, take your place, stand free
Join the tribe and sing with me
Stand up for yourself and claim
Your victory

Join the Tribes
Join the Urban Tribes
Join us
Join the Urban Tribes
Rise together
More than ever
We must stand up for our needs
All will shatter
For the better
Now’s the time to plant the seeds

Urban tribes

We still move like we belong
Fighting fire with amity
Undivided we stand strong
We’re the voice of reason
Defending our beliefs
Take a step, take your place, stand free
Join the tribe and walk along
All together we’ll achieve
Equality

Join the Tribes
Join the Urban Tribes
Join us
Join the Urban Tribes
Rise together
More than ever
We must stand up for our needs
All will shatter
For the better
Now’s the time to plant the seeds
Track Name: Divided
You need me
You say your life depends on me
I know, I know now
Divided
Between all that I am and everything I want to be

You hold me
So tight it’s getting hard to breathe
No more, no more now
Divided
Between setting my ground and all the things that set me free

Cry
Don’t you leave
We’ll be together ‘til the end of time
Mine
You can’t leave
I cannot be without you, I will not survive

You want me
But you won’t mind the things I need
So cold, so cold now
Divided
Between all that I have and everything he gives to me

He promised
A world of love and ecstasy
Not sure, not sure now
Divided
Between all that he is and everything you should have been

Cry
Don’t you leave
We’ll be together ‘til the end of time
Mine
You can’t leave
I cannot be without you, I will not survive
Track Name: Bipolar
Made of stone
Iron bones
You know I’m unbreakable

I’m eternal
I’m immortal
I am indestructible

Large as life

I’m fantastic
Everlasting
Flawless and exceptional

Can’t deny me
Idolize me
I am incomparable

Incredible

Truant from myself
Frail
Hope falling behind
(Give up life)
Helpless and confused
Tired of talking
But screaming inside

Firestarter
I’m no martyr
I am holy, I’m divine

Laughing harder
Always smarter
Don’t you know I’m always right?

Truant from myself
Frail
Hope falling behind

Helpless and confused
Tired of talking
But screaming inside
Trapped down in misery
I don’t know what to do
I’m too drained inside
Alone and too weary to fight

Always smiling
Never hiding
Nothing brings me down you see

I’m outstanding
So amazing
Don’t you wish you were like me?

Be like me

Truant from myself
Frail
Hope falling behind
Helpless and confused
Tired of talking
But screaming inside

Caught up in the dark
Frozen
Already dead inside
(Give up life)
Nothing left to save
No way out
The pain ends tonight
Track Name: Last Moments Of Pain
You think you’re always right
You want me to comply
You want to break me inside
My mistake

You think you are my savior (Hope you enjoy)
You think I have no strength to leave (I’m not your toy)
I’ll fly away forever (For you to destroy)
These are the last moments of pain

Farewell pride
I got wise
Say goodbye
Farewell trust
No more lies
Die you must

You think you are so clever (Hope you enjoy)
You lied and thought I would believe (I’m not your toy)
I’ll fly away forever (For you to destroy)
These are the last moments of pain

Farewell pride
I got wise
Say goodbye
Farewell trust
No more lies
Die you must

Your empty threats won’t stand
You’ll pray to understand
Why I would curse your ground
Come around

I needed you like water (Hope you enjoy)
I loved you like the pouring rain (I’m not your toy)
I’ll fly away forever (For you to destroy)
These are the last moments of pain

Farewell pride
I got wise
Say goodbye
Farewell trust
No more lies
Die you must
Track Name: Praise Your Queen
I’ll rise you up into hell
I’ll drag you down to heaven too
Like no one else will ever do

I’ll satiate your cravings
And I’ll do all you want me to
You know I am the one for you

Kneel down, step in
Come praise your queen
I will comply
Pledge you my life
Render my soul

You know you want to serve me
Bow down and let me take you in
I’ll have you burning from within

I want you down on your knees
And I command you to be mean
Just lose yourself under my skin

I am your sin
Come praise your queen
I will comply
Obey your cry
Give up control

At your command
I will resign my power
I will obey
Just make me feel like that

I’ll go down your desire
Then I’ll go up your fantasy
You just have to bow down to me

I’ll rule like a sovereign
I’ll dominate, and when you win
I’ll be your slave, you’ll be supreme

It’s not a dream
Come praise your queen
I will comply
I won’t ask why
I won’t let go

At your command
I will resign my power)
I will obey
Just wanna feel like that

Devote yourself to my will
In every breath I’ll make you scream
I promise it won’t hurt a thing

The throne is waiting for you
I’ll give you all you’ll ever need
You’ll be my one and only king

Kneel down, step in
Come praise your queen
I will comply
I can’t deny
Take me, I’m yours
Track Name: Evil In Me
They cry and they beg
No mercy is shown I don't care
The thrill is because its so easy to kill
I'm trying to gain control

I prey on the weak
These insane cravings are invoked
In time it will tame me and I'll lose myself
I'm trying to gain control

Or
I'm lost from inside

Not proud of myself
Trying to release this in my soul
Its time to take back what is mine I once had
And try to gain control

Leave me
Get out

Or
I'm lost from inside

Insanity reigns
Too powerful for me to take
Hell feeds me, hell keeps me and leaves me so cold
I just can't gain control
Track Name: On N'est Pas Des Anges
Break, break
No deed will brake your fall
Pray, pray
You’re prey and you will crawl

Faux et infidèle
On n'est pas des anges

Shame, shame
Same destiny for all
Blame, blame
In flames you too shall fall

Pas de pardon pour toi
Tu as fait ton choix

Cry
No angel inside
No saint or divine
Free will is your crime

Hide, hide
Outside above the rules
Pride, pride
You lied, you played the fool

Faux et infidèle
On n'est pas des anges

Why, why
Your whining is your doom
Try, try
You strive to dig your tomb

Pas de pardon pour toi
Tu as fait ton choix

Cry
No angel inside
No saint or divine
Free will is your crime

Crave, crave
A slave is standing tall
Brave, brave
Your grave awaits your fall

Faux et infidèle
On n'est pas des anges

Break, break
Same destiny for all
Pray, pray
In flames you too shall fall

Pas de pardon pour toi
Tu as fait ton choix
Track Name: Time Bomb
I binge it in and purge it out
No point in fighting I've no doubt
Kicking in I feel alive
Madness comes with a price

Ride so high
No pride
Can't turn back

Chemicals and drinkables
Powder pleasures lose control
Can't deny what comes inside
They deceive me I can't hide

Fly so high
No lie
Can't turn back
No turning back

The healing gods won't help me
Betrayed by my sanity
Digging my own tomb
I am a time bomb

Fragments spreading in my mind
No toxic waste was left behind
Causing damage to myself
A monster heading straight to hell

Ride so high
No pride
Can't turn back

Death remains my only choice
Fear in man reflects my voice
Blame society's defaults
Crumbling down I see no halt

Fly so high
No lie
Can't turn back
No turning back

The healing gods won't help me
Betrayed by my sanity
Digging my own tomb
I am a time bomb
Track Name: White Light
Woke up all alone
Drowning in the silence
Of an empty house that used to feel like home

It’s been a million years
I can feel eternity
Within every second gone since you were here

I tried to find a reason why
But there’s no answer
And I just can’t find the strength I need to say goodbye

White light
Shinning down from heaven through a dark sky
You were always there for me
But I was blind
I never thought I’d lose you
Now I’m torn apart
There’s nothing left from you but white light

Memories carved in me
Your warm and sweet surrender
And the softness of your touch against my skin

I can still hear you breathe
Your smile is gone forever
But your bright eyes live on tattooed on my dreams

I tried to find a reason why
I’m still aching for an answer
‘Cause I know you’ll always be the one who owns my heart

White light
Shinning down from heaven through a dark sky
You were always there for me
I was blind
I never thought I’d lose you
Now I’m torn apart
There’s nothing left from you but white light

White light
