Track Name: Resurrection
Track Name: Works of Fire
Don't believe a word they say
Seeing all the signs, and the ways of our today
Do you live a lie, or are you true
Open up your eyes, rearrange to change

Alone in my dark room, at the top of the stairs
Seeking my secrets, and knowing it's where

Let me hear the voices and fill the space that resides all around my soul
And silence, is a question - careful how you answer truly all they have put forth

By the moon - works of fire
Of the sky - works of fire
Lighting our - works of fire

Someone is calling me
Help me see just what I need and see it set me free
In a world - between two worlds
Generations pay for mistakes that some have made

By the moon - works of fire
Of the sky - works of fire
Lighting our - works of fire

Darkest hour of night, who stands before me smiling, as I have my way
I look in visions - I can see my enemy - stalking eyes that stare me down, as if they're staring from the ground
And what about your world - your laws
Do they ever really satisfy the need to watch men bleed

In my darkest hour, I leave this place, and I make no mistakes
I've told about the old - I've spoken to the dead
Nevermore will I be blessed, the changes thought within my head
And the end of time it comes, I'll be the one waiting for - the change to rearrange...
Track Name: False Prophecies
You speak the words - What do you say
You speak the words - Now listen to me
All the prophecies about you and me
Is written in blood it's all so clear to me
God gives the right to the one who walks the night
And people dream in unseen things

Bring all the armies of the world to me
Let me in - Now begin
Gather at the river filled with blood you'll see
That fear is now your only hope
Sins redemption from your fate that you're
Now face to face with death
You - You're in my hands I ask of you
If you're not me - Who are you?

False prophet look at me
I know just who you are
I see the moon turned into black
The salt turned into blood
Unholy one you're here at last
I hope you'll let me die

Hear the sound of people all around
Searching for lies - The truth in disguise
People see - Listen to me
Fix your past - No false prophecies

Remembering that fatal night and all the things
I said to you - Know it's true
Travel back with me and you will see that fate
It has a place in your heart

Pain and greed and blasphemy
It's how I live my life
My future is so clear to me
My past so full of lies
Your book that says to live in fear
And you shall reap the Earth
But all those prophecies are false
So what's it really worth
Track Name: Deceiver
Come forth, enter through my gates
Darkness is power, patiently awaits
To set you free, fall to your knees
Endure the pain, do as I please

Shadows arise in the night
See the flash across the sky
Hear the screams of the suffering
Losing faith and the will to live

Feel the presence of death
What's your loss becomes my gain
Believing you'll find the truth
But all you'll find is all my pain

You lied to me for too long
I read your words - I heard your song
You think you know what's best for me
But no more will you deceive

Can't escape the past - This is not a trial
I am here to set you free - Believe
Witnessed all the facts
This is what it comes to be - In my mind reality

Come with me - stand by me
Fill your veins with some of me - sinner
Full of hate - full of sin
Come with people now begin your lives

Raining death from the sky
And you know the reason why
It's the beginning - we will mold a prophecy
And the way it is to be forever
Listen to what I have to say
Do not turn your head away - deceiver
You will be the chosen one
But you're not the only one - so DIE
Track Name: See'r
Should you live a lie or should you die
Should you look up to the sky or down below
Should you speak the words that shouldn't be spoken
Or sit and wait and let your future unfold

I have listened to your lies and laughed
I have seen through your disguise...I'm laughing
All these things I do I do for me
So don't preach to me just let me be alone

All seen is believed in me
There's no judgment passed on me
I got no need to be received
No change, no brain disease

And who wrote your book of lies
What's to pain and what's the prize
Do you live for light of day
Cause if you do you'll die today

God... War
Peace... Sin
Win... Change
Do... Life

Love... Hate
Laugh... Cry
Can... You
Live... Lie
Track Name: Eyes of Christ
All the words are innocent
All those thoughts are false
Peace declare a holy war
And all hope is lost
In the sky I see a light
I see fear upon a cross
Below him see the screaming fools
Above his father's gone

Father, why hast thou forsaken me this time
I need to know the answer
Before I finally die
Nazarene, there is no one
Why must you be so blind
This is the way that I see things
Through the eyes of Jesus Christ

Truth is compassion, this vision can not be
And my eyes have seen the lies
And I know what it is
Creation is a falsehood, it can never be
Die in hell, my prophecy, and you'll live eternally

Nazarene, you'll feel the triumph of hell
And fear my lasting breath until you die
Love destroys all life, so let it be
You were put on Earth to parish

The eyes of Christ can see
The pain that is in store
Feel all that he felt so many years ago
Look into the eyes of mighty Jesus Christ

Conjure up the pain you felt so long ago
The wings of love are frayed.. no flight
No peace... no truth
No one to say who's wrong or right
The fears.. the emotions
All the pain that I control
The tears of God.. his pain will soon unfold
Wander aimlessly, take my guiding hand
Walk with me... you wil find
I am but a friend
Look into the night.. see my father's eyes
Beware the light of day
The holy eyes of Jesus Christ
Track Name: Visions of Hypocrisy
Spirits form, hear my voice
Will you comfort the Earth
Now make your choice

I move myself in power
No one can stop me now
Continually I'll break new ground
But never break my vow
As evil flows all through my blood
And I'll give it all to you
Show me all your power
And all that you can do

All these things that seem to me
Are take...offs of reality
Death to me is the thing
That is truly real

Evil is my only friend
Good can never reign again
Feeble thoughts of happiness
They will never be

Love can't take what's dear to me
Visions of hypocrisy
Compassion of a human race
That will surely die

Take the time to look around
Your world inside is falling down
Deny love and happiness
And then you'll follow me

I'll serve the only one
That serves me like I serve myself
Upon these words I speak to you
Put the lord upon a shelf
The mighty light prevails on you
Can it overturn the dark
The fear of losing everything
Will make you change your way

I have come... I've seen the sign
Now come with me... you'll die tonight

Guard of fire unsheathe your sword
And let me see the evil way
Take me to my final home
And prepare me for judgment day
All the good is taunting me
So save me before it's too late
Forgiveness, love, and happiness
Are all the things I've grown to hate

Brightness must end... It cannot be won
Engulfed in sin... show me the way
Forget your life... beware the night
Heed all the words... give me your soul

You've heard my way... you've seen the sign
You took the vow... now you are mine
Track Name: Encased In Glass
Look into my dreams and tell me.. what do you find
Broken glass... faded dreams... of a shattered life
You left me oh, so long ago, now what becomes of me
A statue now reminds me, of all that's dear to me

Look into the painted glass, I gaze upon my knees
I try to find the only way to end my misery
There's no one here to help me, now what becomes of me
Behind the stone, I hear a voice, and now who can it be

Don't be... afraid I'm here to help you
Don't fear... I bring you no harm
Take my... hand and we'll walk now
Hurry now... for I fear the storm
Thunder... begins to break the silence
Lightning... blinding the dark
The tears... roll out of her eyes now
I fear... for what is in store

Waking from a sleep I know that this not a dream
Behind the door I hear a voice, and she begins to speak

I see... the pain that she feels... and then, I see her cry
I don't... know all the reasons...
Why she...had to die
The glass... it begins to crack now... and then... she fades away
Her final... words were to me is "I will return here one day"

Waking once again I wonder... is this happening
The broken glass around my bed... and dirt around my feet
Looking through the window... she's waving back at me
A vision of the little one... that meant so much to me
Track Name: Benediction of Faith
Flowers now decay... the end draws ever near
Sorrow eases happiness... but I will shed no tear
Fear will rape compassion... doubt will swallow truth
I lift my eyes to heaven... and laugh at holy fools

Take me to the place I've seen... so many years ago
On bending knees I pray to thee... at the base of hatred's throne
I scream my needs and bed for want... unto a burning sky
Satan grant me just one wish... and let that be to die

Eclipse the light of day... gather strength from the night
Take your fear emotions reversed... and end this thing called light

Now I will pose a question... answer me if you can
Who will you choose to guide you... into the holy land
Choose wise, foolish mortal... your life it will depend
There's no one here to help you... your life is at its end

Sit with me and gaze upon... the final setting sun
The human race as we al know it... is finally done
Reality of things to care are seen... right through my eyes
Helpless bastard, Christian one... it's time for you to die

Gaze upon the blackened night... and see the dark moon rise
The days begun it's time for us... to bring the legions up
You've made your choice... you raised the test
You've determined now your fate... you've seen the way
You know the lie... of the benediction of faith
Track Name: Apocalypse
Screaming up from hell, the voices call to you
What's lurking deep inside what's tearing at your womb
Pristine bitch of God, this could never happen to you
But guess again, the demon's seed, has been planted in your womb

Just a matter of time, before the seed begins to spawn
And hell shall open up again, and bring forth heaven's fall
Hooded men that stalk the night, bring you in from the rain
Who are they, what do they want... and which god do they serve

Locked inside the pristine cell, you begin to feel the pain
The feelings of your own birth, are happening again
A shadow forms upon the wall, and screaming fills the room
The dark is falling all around, now what will you do

Evil now surrounds you, now what have you done
You're the one that's given birth, to his unholy son
My God what have you done, and now what will you do
The revelations at hand, and it's all because of you

Now rise, bring forth the end
Now rise, so we may reign again
My fate, is resting in your hands
My life, will now begin again

Angels descend from the sky...
Demons ascending from their cell
Rise up and lead us to fight...
Victorious we'll return to hell

Faith, your religion, what has it done
You'll fall to me, oh holy one
Curse, all the love, that you bestow
Hate can not lose, to one so weak
Hate, it prevails, love, it now fails
Fear, now is mine, death... I give to you

The seals break, I see the light
Hell glows, in all it's glory
See the sign, and see the way
It's time, for judgment day

Break the seals and hear the sound
The word of God is all around
Now you know the end of time is near
You see your life before your eyes
You realize it's time to die
Have you been a holy little child

The trumpets sound, angels surround
You'll be gone before too long
But will they be the ones to take you home
Continually they pass you by
And you don't know the reason why
Your evil life runs by your eyes again

Remembering the evil reign
You witness your own birth again
As hooded men bring you in from the rain
Yes, it's true, the marks on you
And now, my prince, what will you do?
The seventh sign depends on only you

Give the word and I'll be gone
I can defy the holy law
The faith of happiness will surely fall
Now I see the marks on me
And now my father command me
The seventh sign rest on my evil head

From the north I see, hatred beckons me
From the south I hear, people scream in fear
No, I can not fail, creator hear me now
For you made me too, I am just like you

Now you want a war, now forever more
Seek and you will find, all of this is mine

Thunder I hear, the sky will fall
The Earth is mine, famines my call
I plague the Earth, with my own birth
I know it's me, coming from the rain

Fools can not see, all that I can
Fools can not see, just who I am
See as i see, do as I do
Fear what I am, because I AM YOU
Track Name: Maniac
The voices in your head are telling you beware
You hear them loud and clear but you don't even care
You search down in your soul, you're sure it's not your own
You know not where you're at or where you want to go

Think to yourself at all the times and the end is growing closer
The next you hear the killer, the killer slowly enters your head
Spreading all through your body, a painful possession and death
It doesn't matter what you do, your mind's not in control

You say it's all in your head but it won't let go
You'll be back in hell and that is where you'll dwell
Confused by anger you roam the streets to kill
Hiding in the shadows blinded by the steel

Await your harmless victims, the ones you rape and kill
The bitch approaches closer, get ready to attack
Can't hide it anymore, you feel where you belong
Has satanic magic, left you all alone?
Feel this cancer growing deep inside your mind
You're in control but has it left you blind
Now you are the killer, strickened with death
Will you strike again, it's all inside your mind

Lost control forever trapped behind your eyes
In your mind you play the victim trapped inside your lies
Back out on the streets and why, you don't know
Your mind is plagued with death, possession just won't let you go
The powers they come from hell... all you need is death
Lost control is Satan inside of me
Raping and killing and blood is all I need
Disembodied bodies lay in a pool of blood in front of me
Killing spree, I feel thee, you'll see...
I'm free
