Track Name: Wasteland
Instrumental
Track Name: Dust
Dust

Dance with me now to the end
On graves long buried, as new lives begin
To hopes and dreams that never come
To great deeds that are long done
The right moment that never comes
Together we dance

As we're waiting for the rain to end
The Sun and Moon both fade away again
Embrace me now as I decay
Enamored 'til we fade away
As we all turn to dust

The moments pass as we delay
Waiting brings only another day
As we watch life's fire burn
At birth the clock begins to turn
A tick, tock, tick marks the slow burn
Still together we dance

As we're waiting for the rain to end
The sun and moon both fade away again
Embrace me now as I decay
Enamored 'til we fade away
As we all turn to dust
Track Name: Horizon
Horizon

The sun is setting
consumed by the horizon
Another day fades away
The sands of time are running faster
Shadows growing longer
Darkening the sky
Staring into blackness
I don't think to ask why

The sun returns
To burn another page of days
All eyes too busy to see
Ignored, the ashes fly away
Cut to the chase
Snap to the ending
For one moment
I stop to ask why

We race to the end
And tell me what may lie over the horizon
Tell me why does the sun burn time
We burn the pages that could tell us something new

The new dawn is born
To light the tracks that guide my way
Behind me a culture dies,
The lights of war so far away
Build up the ashes
Tend to the dying
Tell them the stories
So they too can ask why

We race to the end
And tell them what may lie over the horizon
And tell them why does the sun burns time
We burnt the pages that could tell us something new

Books are burning, pages turning; it's a show for all to see
Words are burning but their memories remain

And I know we race to the end
And I know what lies over the horizon
And I know that the sun burns time
I am the pages I can tell you something new
Track Name: Infected
Infected

I watch the blood drip from my fingertips
Just like sand through the hourglass my time is running out
As I grow cold my thoughts grow darker
As I reflect on the life I let run out
Like the blood through the holes in my veins

Before I die please kill me
Put a bullet in my brain
'Cause my thirst for blood is growing
I don't want to wake up dead
Don't want to wake up dead

This isolation is killing me
My screaming prayers fall silent when there's no one listening
My life flash shows blood on my fingertips
As the line for the last respects runs out
Like the blood through the holes in my veins

Before I die please kill me
Put a bullet in my brain
'Cause my thirst for blood is growing
I don't want to wake up dead
Don't want to wake up dead
Track Name: Caught Between Heaven and Hell
Caught between Heaven and Hell

In this house of warmth and bliss
I am welcomed by those I've missed
Forgotten want and suffering
Pain and fear a lost reckoning

Love so plenty fills the air
Thoughts so selfish disappear
Offered with eternal embrace
I'm so human that I spit in it's face

My eyes see the world
My mind has desires
The ghost chooses it's eternity
while the machine expires

The grim halls of misery
house the pain of humanity
Regret the past mistakes
Envy, greed and a world of hate

Sorrow, guilt they burn in me
I'll die to end this suffering
The fear of eternal agony
Does not stop my selfish mien

My eyes see the world
My mind has desires
The ghost chooses it's eternity
While the machine expires
Track Name: Cocoon
Cocoon

Sleep
Inside our shell
Closed off to the outside
Hiding from the pain

Numb
To joy and sorrow
To love and loss
To being alive

Anger
At the world
Just blame everybody
Except yourself

Isolation
Push everyone away
Fall back inside your shell
So you won't have to change

Withdrawn from emotion
Addicted to affection
Horrified by grief
Scared to death to live
Filling the emptiness
With physical distraction
Denying that
Part of being human is the pain
Track Name: Against the Grain
Against the Grain (Don't Tread On Me)

I live my life
With my head held high
Decisions made to pave the way
A road to tomorrow

Take the road less traveled
Or the path of good intentions
The long way around
No signs to guide the way

No sorrow no pain
Against the grain
I feel no shame
Against the grain

Open your eyes
See for the first time
A face in a faceless crowd
Of lost identity

Toe to toe face to face
With what you fear the most
Look into these eyes
The truth and the lies

No holding back
No compromise
Won't be denied
Don't tread on me
Track Name: Box of Culture
Box of Culture

The violence today
Comes from that little box
It shows us the way out
Of our dead end lives

It fills us with vast information
All edited for their protection
It won’t let us think
For ourselves

Box of culture
Show me life and happiness
Box of culture
Don’t let me think, control my mind

All the news of the world
Comes to us each night
So do the violent streets
To survive you’ve got to fight

Day after day
We escape form our life
To the visions of western culture
Coming from that little box
Track Name: Ignorance
Ignorance

The time to save the planet
Was before our generation
The oil spills and toxic fills  
have destroyed the different species

Earth Day is a farce
To raise the nations income
While aerosols in the ozone
will burn us to a cinder

Ignorance
Why must we die?
Ignorance
It's time for genocide

I can see the end and the end is near

One country’s plot to save the planet
Make no differences
While other countries still pollute
And so do businesses

The fast food chains destroy the rainforests
To get their side of beef
Cattle aren't the only things slaughtered
When they get their profits
 
Our fear is not the holocaust or military force
It's mankind's stupidity.  For nature we have no remorse.
To sacrifice technology would be a shame, to save the planet
We can always move a ruin another innocent world
Track Name: Time Alone
Time Alone

Hold onto yourself
The pressures from outside are closing in
It can change the way
you see the world around

Time can change your values
Time can change you
You can't change time
You can kill yourself to try
But you can't fight it

It's good to look back
But there you can't remain
You can rot in the past
Or take what's to come and survive

Little things are  are overlooked
As You wait for a new day
But time alone inside our heads
Can alter our past memories

Feelings come in many forms
They deliver a different mood
Hold onto the moment
Hold onto yourself for yourself
Track Name: Scream Queen (Featuring Linnea "Trash" Quigley)
Scream Queen

Somethings got a hold of me
The image of you is larger than life
Your scream cuts into the night
Like a knife piercing my flesh

You call out to me
Through the silver screen
Reaching out to me
Only to tear my heart out
I will not care

You are my life
My every breath
Scream with me tonight
I love you to death

Reach out and take my hand
Off to never never land
Open your mouth up to the night and scream
Scream for me tonight

You are my life
My every breath
Scream with me tonight
I love you to death

Open your mouth up to the night and scream
Scream for me tonight
Open your mouth up to the night and scream
Scream for me tonight
Tonight
Track Name: Bad Moon Rising
Bad Moon Rising

I see the bad moon arising
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightnin
I see bad times today

Dont go around tonight,
Well, its bound to take your life,
Theres a bad moon on the rise

I hear hurricanes ablowing
I know the end is coming soon
I fear rivers over flowing
I hear the voice of rage and ruin

Dont go around tonight,
Well, its bound to take your life,
Theres a bad moon on the rise

Hope you got your things together
Hope you are quite prepared to die
Looks like were in for nasty weather
One eye is taken for an eye

Dont go around tonight,
Well, its bound to take your life,
Theres a bad moon on the rise

Dont go around tonight,
Well, its bound to take your life,
Theres a bad moon on the rise
