Track Name: Awake in the Grave
Verse:
A life of purpose denied
Void of all thought yet you still recognize
The stench of a substance so vile
Losing your grip as it drags you down

Chorus:
Into the abyss
From which there's no return
These twisting faces will watch as you burn

Verse:
A hell you could not conceive
Chaos, madness run free with rampancy
The swift reward is your end
You have sealed a fate that you could not comprehend
It's dragging you down

Chorus:
Into the abyss
From which there's no return
These twisting faces will watch as you burn

Bridge:
Paranoia misanthropy
A life of misery, death and disease
Another fix is another day
But there's no light when you're Awake in the Grave
Are you dead or just alive in the black?
Is this a dream or a horrid flashblack?
This is more than you bargained for
Yet you can't escape this all-consuming void

Outro:
Your screams are silent
Take your last breath
The endless cycle
Brought endless death
Track Name: Blatant Disregard
Disconnected from the world
Without a shred of moral concern
From your tower you look down
Below they rot away

Dissidents die in vain
You can't defy us now
Your masters we remain

Breeding in your stupidity
Spread the message of fear and hate
Bent down in humility
Do exactly as I say
No questions will be answered
Your thoughts are surely flawed
No rhyme or reason
Just Blatant Disregard

Unrest is brewing down below
Shaking the foundation of all that you know
From your tower you look down
Your treachery they'll repay

Dissidents we remain
You can't defy us now
We'll smite you in disdain

Breeding in your stupidity
Spread the message of fear and hate
Bent down in humility
Do exactly as I say
No questions will be answered
Your thoughts are surely flawed
No rhyme or reason
Just Blatant Disregard

Brought down by the siege
You may run but you cannot hide
Give your life unto me
Your life means nothing to the world
You beg, you plead as I take the pleasure of watching you bleed

I revoke, reclaim all the power that you hold
You're corrupt, insane, blind and drunk with power
I refuse, resist as you beg for your life
You coward, you fraud, your wealth won't save you

Dictation reinstated by the populous
This war of terror you cannot win
Eternally you're doomed to be
Forgotten, left behind in the echoes of the past
Track Name: Defector
I have no fear of the unknown
There is a trap in the ways we are shown
I cannot stand idly by and watch the death of what was never meant to die

This is not a mutiny it's where I stand alone
Dormant no more
I won't give in to the easy way out of this life
I will not be ignored

Regain control
Defect from the path they have paved
Never follow those who seek to control you
Open your eyes to desensitize the mind to this ongoing plague

I have no fear of the unseen
There is more to life than what's on your screen
There is no victor in a war without end
I won't be a part of something that I'd never defend

This is not a mutiny it's where I stand alone
Dormant no more
I won't give in to the easy way out of this life
I will not be ignored

Regain control
Defect from the path they have paved
Never follow those who seek to control you
Open your eyes to desensitize the mind to this ongoing plague

I denounce this state
I deny this way of life
I grow filled with hate as I watch humanity die
You no longer decide what is right and wrong
This place you see as free, this is the place I will never belong

I leave this dying world behind with no regret
I am the Defector

This is not a mutiny it's where I stand alone
Dormant no more
I won't give in to the easy way out of this life
I will not be ignored

Regain control
Defect from the path
