Track Name: Transfigurate
Grant my words to be redemption
I’ll breathe these tales of tragedy
I stand soul in hand to carry my burden
For the monster I held inside

Oh heavens of mine
Render me suffering
For the hearts I compromised

I will thrive
Restore the balance within my mind
My eyes see that all can be lost

[chorus:]
My heart defiled
I was condemned to commit these crimes
(I’ll) show you the hands of saints that destroyed me

At the gates of hell
Grant me a mirror (I’ll make it shatter)
I despise my lies
You’ll see how fast I can burn
I’m to be cleansed, re-humanized

Oh heavens of mine
Render me suffering
Save me from my own demise

Set my fears aside
Restore the balance within my mind
Hope dies
But I will fight for life

[chorus]
Track Name: Inner Bleeding
Behold the story of my dream to take down the world
Dementia settles the moment that this inner bleeding takes over my head
And slowly consumes my mind
I lose my sight
I’m the only strand safeguarding my frailties
With the power of my lies

Simmer their wounds
Notice how it sates you

[hook:]
I’m the bringer of torment
Their tears, my sustenance

Bow down, make me whole
I survive to control

[hook]

To my affliction I let a voice take control
Psychopath!
To my affliction I let a voice take control

We should binge on their sorrows
They’re not made for amity (NO!)
Spit you out
Make you burn
I’m not a monster, I just can’t find my soul

[hook]

As they kneel before me, I am the king of woe

I drag the chains of my father
Carry his wrath that’s within me

When it takes over my head
And slowly consumes my mind
I lose my sight
I’m the only strand
Safeguarding my frailties with the power of my lies

Simmer their wounds
Notice how it sates you

[hook]
Track Name: Outer Violence
[chorus:]
Parasitic minds reach in through my eyes
Piercing through them, leeching me

No one saves you from what delves in me
Lone beast to consume your tears
Smear your blood
Torment your soul
Blood tainted cold water quenches my thirst
Left by a ghost that rots woe
My skies were built on gunpowder to ignite
To mutilate you opens up my smile
I’ll see the center of you as you die

My dreams are made of damned waters
As you drown I feel my lungs clear
My blade caressing your throat gets me hard
(And) I get drunk on your fear

I’ll put an end to all I thought I loved
Nobody saved me
Now at the brink of loss, I’ve never been so lost

My dreams are made of hell’s fire
When you burn, there’s a warmth within me
Behold the animus of His son

I’m the unrefined godless human swine
Alas, this time
Have I crossed the line?
This time pain cannot heal me
Despite what I’ve done I set for another kill
I will stalk, I’ll abuse, I will purge for the man who betrayed me

So demented

Lies breeding lies
Living lies
All lies

[chorus]

As this creature lies to rest
I’ll bend the skies
For taking my mother
Track Name: Purge
I say we let the crows sing their victory
Death found a new diversion (death found a new diversion)
I am now what I’ve seen
My purpose is clear

I am risen from His hell
My lover, forgive me
Bathe on the blood you spill
Hold my voice high
Gone is her soul, thrown to the hole
Oh father, come and dare to see what you have done

As this creature lies to rest
I’ll bend the skies
For taking my mother

Kneel to my blade, obey my law
I aim to purge you with the strength of a sun
Remember her frame
So frail, so young
Father, I did the same
Fate has done us wrong

[chorus:]
As this creature lies to rest
I’ll bend the skies
For taking my mother (please don’t take her)

Behold my treason
Curse all I’ve done
Immorality cripples our young
Thus thou shall learn to love
It shall not hurt to live
Redemption is my purge
I am free from all my demons
Blessed be all I curse

As this creature lies to rest
I’ll bend the skies
For taking my mother
Track Name: Regenerate
Oh heavens of mine
Render me bliss
Treasure the heart she brings to life

Will I be free
I bid farewell to a life of wrongs

I’m now weary and growing old
As days go by my time unfolds
My time unfolds
I now carry a stone the weight of the world to cleanse my woes

But there is hope and sorrow in my words
There’s salvation within love
And you can be mad at the way things went
You can swear, curse the fates
But when it comes to the end
You have to let go

If I were god
I would have made the world just so, and no different
Just so I have you
And if she isn’t the word of god
Then god never spoke a word
