Track Name: Exile
Exile from everything
Destined to be bound
By new lack of purpose
(I’ll never be free from)

This hostile existence
I’m forced to endure
(I’m nothing, a nuisance)
It’s what I deserve

Ascend to Isolation

I wasn’t meant
To walk this earth
Not strong enough to bare
The weight of this curse

You made up your mind
Said I was just a mistake
You looked me in the eyes
And you sent me away


ANGRY, HOLLOW, ALONE
I watched you let me
GO INTO THE UNKNOWN
I thought that I could
GROW MY WEAKNESS EXPOSED

There’s nowhere left to go
Cast from a place I couldn’t call my home

Angry, Hollow, Alone
I watched you let me go
I watched you let me go
I watched you let me
(Go my weakness, exposed)
I watched you let me go
I watched you let me goooo
Track Name: Strike Back
I watched you grow
Side by side
In the cage next to mine

You’re a clone
Nothing more than
A corrupted soul

I wasn’t born
To be trapped
But I was forced to adapt

You’re a stain
Born in vein
And you’ll die the same

THE WALL BETWEEN US
It will break tonight
I’ll put a stop to this
If it’s the last thing I-

DID YOU REALLY THINK
You could keep up this lie?
We can’t coexist
And I hope it makes you sick

I’m so disgusted
By the way that you’re weak
It’s an insult to my existence
Every time that you breathe

You use your weakness as a weapon
And your pain as a crutch
You compromise your own convictions
And you never seem to practice what you

Preach, You’re nothing but a leech
You’re a bottom feeding hypocrite
That’s sucking all the life out from the
Scene, I thought you were like me
But you only let me see
What you wanted me to
Track Name: Ideation
Discarded into darkness
This is my last consequence
Dissolve me into nothing
Cut from the confines of reality

On my own
With nothing else to show
Destiny
Left long ago

Desolate
Welcomed by the void
Desperate
Every chance destroyed

I’ll find my way back

After everything
Is said and done
Why am I the one?
Who’s all alone?

IM SO ALONE

Let destiny rot
I’ll make you suffer for everything that I’ve
(Lost without the gravity
That bound me to fate)

Plotting my homecoming
And soaking my soul in haaaate
Track Name: Primitive
Primitive


You never know just how low
You can go

Until you reach the hole
At the bottom of the barrel

Afraid of the dirt
That you came from

Haunted by the evil
That you’re capable of

Take a look
Inside the sewers to see
That there’s a version of you
That turned out just like me

Fall face first
Into the waste
Just to realize you were
Missing the taste

Destiny will fade
As desperation Invades
The rumors are true
There’s no excuse

Now they know of your bad deeds
Planted in the ground as another bad seed
So take your place, in the gutter
And live the life that you deserve

You’ll get what you deserve

So roll around in the dirt with me
Say goodbye to your hopes and dreams
Lose all sense of security
ONE WITH THE primitive beings
Track Name: Survive
SURVIVE

It doesn’t matter
Where I go I’m always lost
Doesn’t make a bit of difference
Always left without a cause or care
About my life, lost in myself
Waiting around to die

SURVIVE, SURVIVE
I’d rather choke on the truth
Than have to swallow the
Lies you try to hide behind
I’d rather suffer
Than spend another day blind

Another wasted effort
I’ll never be free
It wasn’t worth it
And it was never meant to be

MEANT TO BE



Live on this earths got me nothing but hurt
But I keep crawling back
Because it’s what I deserve

I’m never loved I’m always lost
Burned every bridge that I couldn’t cross
No going back, nowhere to come home to
I chose my path, only did what I had to

Survive, SURVIVE
I’d rather choke on the truth
Than have to swallow the
Lies you try to hide behind
I’d rather suffer
Than spend another day blind

I’d rather suffer
Than have to live another liiiie
