Track Name: Deity
Contempt is all I have left for you
Lofty words are all you spew
Make it my goal to bring you down low
Grace us all with your visionary intellect
We are just so envious
Never will you see the depths of your mediocrity

Blind as you are
Never see
Walls surround you
Cell to keep
This prison is your own mind
Run into the walls around you
Brick by brick they grow stronger
You will never escape this place

Condescending and pretending
All your words are absolute truth
You’re no prophet
Your words are not a sacred text

//All you see is what you believe
No one can change your mind
We are so deaf and dumb
Mere mortals in front of your God

I am not fooled by the likes of you
Behind the mask is an ugly truth
Your ego contorts reality
Imaginary control of all those that you deem below
Independent thought and democracy are your enemies

//
When you call out for help

Won’t turn away anymore
Call you out
You can’t ignore me
I’ll be the thorn in your side

There will be no one there for you

Pull me out
Bleed out
You can’t escape
I’ll make sure to leave a scar

I hope you enjoy the silence

Blind as you are
Never see
Walls surround you
Cell to keep
This prison is your own mind
Run into the walls around you
Brick by brick they grow stronger
You will never escape this place
Track Name: Easy Prey
There’s no innocence
Blood runs through your fingers
My heart is in your hands
There’s no forgiveness
For the damage that you’ve done

The pieces are in place
Let the game begin
All eyes on you, come on take your shot
You catch all the easy prey
The low hanging fruit
Desperate to be anything to you

Make yourself so easy to love
Never let anyone see your true colors
Under your facade, you’re just like me inside

Despite all your efforts, here you are alone
Black widow devour all you love

There’s no innocence
Blood runs through your fingers
My heart is in your hands
There’s no forgiveness
For the damage that you’ve done

Pull them into your game
They wander in, starry eyed
Draw the knife, hide the light
Make sure you bleed them dry
Like cattle they all go willingly, blindly
Just how you want us to be, but you forgot about me
Pull back the blindfold
Slaughter at my feet
Your blade runs red
Look at the souls you’ve spent
All the effort to lure them to your side, for your pride
So you can chalk up a win
Not a thought for the price
Your sugared tongue
Your crooked smile
Your smile-less eyes
They tell nothing but lies
Now I see through your deception
You are so weak
Won’t sink to your level
I’ll leave you to drown in your self pitying pain

Make yourself so easy to love
Never let anyone see your true colors
Under your facade, you’re just like me inside

Despite all your efforts, here you are alone
Black widow devour all you love

There’s no innocence
Blood runs through your fingers
My heart is in your hands
There’s no forgiveness
For the damage that you’ve done
Track Name: Delusionary
Face me like a man
Say it to my face
Or are you afraid of this?
Can’t look me in the eye
Run to your den and hide
My eyes see clearly now

Your own lies you believe
Drag you down like a sheep
To the wolf that is me
All your webs fall apart
Here you are at the start
Go prey on another bleeding heart

You could burn this bridge tonight
Never try to see the light
Delusional thoughts of who you are
All that you create is scars

Are we all just pieces in your chess game of life?
Well your pawn is now a queen
So far above you now
See the numbers through your eyes
Feel the force of my scorn
Your story may be sad but no one’s gonna mourn

You could burn this bridge tonight
Never try to see the light
Delusional thoughts of who you are
All that you create is scars

All your tales are only dreams
You live in a world of self-made fantasy

You could burn this bridge tonight
Never try to see the light
Delusional thoughts of who you are
All that you create is scars
Track Name: Liar Inside
Tell them the things they want to hear
They all believe but I know the truth
Every word from your mouth is twisted to shift the blame from you
Self righteous to the end
You refuse to ever bend
In your mind you are pure and clean
But I see the blood on your hands

Deep down in your soul
You don’t want to be alone
Fill the void with anything to make you feel alive
Such a sad state of mind
What will it take for you to see?
We all die the same
Stripped of all our fame

Reveal all but only what you want to show
You’re oh so FAKE
And they don’t want to accept that their trust has misplaced the mark
Climb the ladder, spin the web
The wool is slipping, wearing thin
Won’t be long before they see you for who you really are

Deep down in your soul
You don’t want to be alone
Fill the void with anything to make you feel alive
Such a sad state of mind
What will it take for you to see?
We all die the same
Stripped of all our fame

Crawl to me, all apologies
As if I’d believe you
Fall under your spell again, I won’t be your innocent
Watching you prey on all their fears, it makes me so sick
When you cut yourself out of my life, I didn’t expect this release
Drown yourself in the weight of your sins
Run away from the guilt like the coward that you are
You will get no pity from me
Choke and submerge in your filth
As you reach for the edge
Cry out for help from the ones you've betrayed and abused
They will hear your calling but they will not help you any more

Deep down in your soul
You don’t want to be alone
Fill the void with anything to make you feel alive
Such a sad state of mind
What will it take for you to see?
We all die the same
Stripped of all our fame
Track Name: Making Glass
A lifetime of dysfunction
It’s the price you pay
Living up to magazines
A fantasy behind a screen
Picture perfect flawless image
All you want to be
Shove your fingers down your throat to be more like the dream

All you are
Construct of society
All you’re not
Don’t let them down
All you are
Sell your soul for the ideal
All you’re not
Leaves you hollow inside

Pay the price for your life
The blame is not on you
Brainwashed from infancy to know what you’re supposed to be

Imaginary eyes on you
Speaking to an empty room
All the fiction that you write in your head is never to be read

Flames dance to create a work of art
Beautiful, but nothing lies below
Fragile surface shows the cracks
Shattered glass, can’t put the pieces back

Imaginary eyes on you
Speaking to an empty room
All the fiction that you write in your head is never to be read

Flames dance to create a work of art
Beautiful, but nothing lies below
Fragile surface shows the cracks
Shattered glass, can’t put the pieces back
Track Name: Ruthless
Every day it’s all the same
He said, she said
Somewhere a fragment of truth
I’ll stay safe in the dark
Held captive by all the things I’m not

All the things you say to break me down
Fuels the fire of my rage
You think you win with all your lies
If it’s a game you want, let’s play
Come on!

Breaking through skin
The blood stains my hands
Got to press on
I will see it through
You can’t stop me
My way runs through you
So stand aside
I must see it through

I can’t believe you got the best of me
Caught you red-handed now you’re dead to me
I won’t forgive, I won’t forget
Take all your pretty words and shove them back
Into your throat
Take it in, fuckin choke

Breaking through skin
The blood stains my hands
Got to press on
I will see it through
You can’t stop me
My way runs through you
So stand aside
I must see it through
I am not like you, I will not go down,
Break my neck to keep my chin up
Ruthless is my name, fighting for endgame
Nothing will stop me

Don’t believe me
Just try me
Bring it on

I won’t show mercy on you
No mercy on you
I’ll destroy you
You will never win
I’ll laugh when you’re dead

Breaking through skin
The blood stains my hands
Got to press on
I will see it through
You can’t stop me
My way runs through you
So stand aside
I must see it through

Breaking through skin
The blood stains my hands
Got to press on
I will see it through

Don’t believe me
Just try me
Bring it on
