Track Name: Dream Sequence
Left with no identity
Forever lost in a distant society
Clouds fade and alter..the trees grow colorless
This death is beautiful. Despondency gives shelter
Recalling countless numbers..
They litter the earth as they fall from the sky


And suddenly.. I'm in a sullen state
I am placed without purpose, yet I feel so content
A lifeless world surrounds me in quiescent debris
I'll just lie here..shrouded in nihility
This is what I want, I beg of you..don't wake me
This reverie is all I have to hold on to
Never again will I ascend beyond present design


The door is closing ..and you'll be left behind
The water's rising, flooding voices consume my mind


Madness - lonely madness - in a desolate sector
We return to a place where despair is routine
Its not important but it matters...it matters
Where murder is sacred..like a gift from the gods
Conceptualized hypocrisy. Why hope for anything?
Look around you. All these people are dropping like flies


I've reveled in symmetrical love
Monovalent, but still I will press on


I have seen the light
And its blinded me
Its branded turmoil deep into my memory
I've reveled in symmetrical love
Monovalent, but still I will press on
And once again, radiating like a virus swimming wildly in my veins
Illuminating as I’m scorched from the inside out
Strobe of a thousand suns

Track Name: Motionless; Emotionless
The onset of this familiar emptiness comes as little a surprise as the look on your face
It shows unrelenting compassion, betwixt malignant self loathing
I know that you've concocted a reason to fall away from me
convincing yourself that i'm better off without you; that you are holding me down


You are an addict
You sprang from the womb this way
You fester in misery
And anticipate darker days


You feel so alive when you're falling
When everything that you hold has taken it's toll on you
You feel so alone when your broken
When everything that you love is soaring above you


Since the day i was born, I could hear your voice
Guiding me and leading me into this path of pain and misery
Once stranded, i was left here to die
But you stayed within my sight
Bringing hope while breathing your love into my lungs


Breathe your love into my lungs
Motionless; emotionless


Everything you are is the product of your agony
My love is the only consolation
You've pulled me into your darkness
Can't you see that we are sinking?
I've tried to climb these walls
But they're painted with the blood of your memories
Your love is the air that i breathe
But your darkness consumes me


This pit you've sucked me into
Has me divided in two
There is no light to see above
No ground below my feet
I feel as though i left my soul high above
As i've descended among the living dead
I'll never breathe again
I've fallen away from you

Track Name: Practically Perfect
I will remain unbound, but I strive for perfection
I'm reaching out for anything that I can still control
And as the blood drips down from the tips of my fingers..
I have never faltered
Holding on to the secrets that make me a monster
Its the only way, yet still I survive a slave


I needed you, but you were taken from me
(I'm begging for your guidance)
I'm falling fast and further away
(I'm lost in this subsidence.. I owe this all to you)
But in the end it means nothing
This is my beautiful disease, my only desire


Don't say a word..forever silent
I'm going to end your timeless suffering
You were a waste before I met you
I have created something marvelous
I see red
Ive become my primal self
This fascinates me.. taking your life will help complete me


Don't you stand
There and pretend that everything is okay
Tick tick tick
That is the sound of your life running out
Close your eyes
And everything will fade away
Tick tick tick
That is the sound of your life running out
This is the sound of your life running out


And you were taken from me
(I'm begging for your guidance)
I'm falling fast and further away
(I'm lost in this subsidence.. I owe this all to you)
But in the end it means nothing
This is my beautiful disease, my only desire
Oh..how I long for one more kill
Just to feel the life as it leaves its prison
No longer given the chance to repent, and all is forgiven
