Track Name: Aftermath
Aftermath

Mighty titans clash
Turning dawn into night time ash
Life's Summer bliss
Now dead Winter cold

A flash of light brings everlasting night
Skyscraper skeletons - death by thirty megatons

Warhead - You're dead
The price for peace is eternal vigilance
No voices left to shout the battle cry
Rest in peace

Vaporized in the blink of an eye
Push of a button the planet Earth dies

A shadow of humanity's legacy
Earth's death by man's brutality
Mankind's worldwide epitaph
Are silhouettes on brick walls
Track Name: Desensitized
Desensitized

The soulless faceless TV screen
Fills my mind with what I crave
A front row seat to a madman world
A dying world with one foot in the grave

Static news bytes
Are what I hunger for
How many killed today
Who started another war

Through desensitized eyes
Feeds a desensitized mind
With still sedation the damage is done
Gray matter brain cells killed off one by one

The nature of mankind
To feed upon itself
When it's all over
There will be nothing left

Fill up this mind
I've seen it before
Shock value fading
Bring on some more
Track Name: Living Hell
Living Hell

When darkness fills the sky
Mankind's eyes don't see the light
Your life is lost to the dead
Your soul is an empty husk

I look at the faces of the damned
I can't live in this living hell
I stare into the eyes of the lost
I can't live in this hell on Earth

Angels fall from grace
Down to this forsaken place
To the living and the damned
This place is living death

I look at the faces of the damned
I can't live in this living hell
I stare into the eyes of the lost
I can't live in this hell on Earth
Track Name: Hardware
Hardware

Part man and part machine
Biotechnology
Man of flesh and bone and steel
Cybertechnology

Execute the master plan
Annihilate the species: man
Mark-13 will cleanse the land
Jack-In now the future is at hand

Flick of the wrist Crack of the neck
Weak human beings Obsolete by the best
Hard wired the flesh is tired
Wire head the flesh is dead

Once man is now machine
The flesh is weak and obsolete
Men of mesh and chrome and steel
Death to flesh long live the steel

Got the world in a death grip
No flesh shall be spared
Clench the fist, watch the blood drip
No flesh shall be spared

Flick of the wrist Crack of the neck
Weak human beings Obsolete by the best
Hard wired the flesh is tired
Wire head the flesh is dead
Track Name: Why?
WHY

So much potential is cancelled by ignorance
So many truths are blinded by faith
Who is divine?
Who's got the answer?
How did we get here
And why should we care?

Everything happens but what is the reason?
Events are linked to what end?
A stepping stone
Or a grave stone
Divine intervention
Or a matter of chance?

This fleeting life is passing by
Blackness falling
Still have no answer to the question why
Death is calling
Curiosity of life's demise
Blackness falling
Just give me the answer to the question: WHY?
Death is calling
Track Name: Hardcore
Hardcore

Kick to the teeth
Bullet in the head
Take out the trash
Bring out your dead

Tears through your flesh
Between the eyes
Cuts to the bone
The end of your life

Tooth for a tooth
Eye for an eye
Truth for a truth
Lie for a lie

Petal to the metal
Full speed ahead
No looking back
No regrets

Spits in your face
Goes for the throat
Tears off your head
Shits down your neck

Tooth for a tooth
Eye for an eye
Truth for a truth
Lie for a lie
Track Name: Warped
Warped

Warped and distorted
Tune in to tune out
Take this brain of clay
To sculpt what you want

Take my conscience
Twist my soul
Warp my mind
To take control

Changing all the facts
Filter what I see
Twisting all the truth
Force feed it to me
Track Name: Overload
Overload

I've got this skull-splitting headache
Suffocating in the flux
Overbearing bombardment
Over-stimulus collapse

Too much to process
Drowning in the sea
Synaptic fireworks
Bring you to your knees

Eyes Glaze over
Mouth is gaping
Body Twitching
Mind erasing
Eyes roll back
Body aching
Chain reacting
Body breaking

Like a time bomb ticking
Countdown commencing
When the counter hits zero...
There's going to be an Overload
A mind-blowing overload
Skull-splitting overload
Mind-numbing overload

Pressure building up
You're going down
You're heading for
A neural breakdown

The fuse is lit
It's burning down
Just a matter of time
Until a full-core meltdown
Track Name: Flipside of Reality
Flilpside of Reality

Nothing can ease my pain

Screams within eat me up
The sound of my pulsing brain
Lies of insanity start to erupt
The fear grows and pulses through my veins

Acts have been conceived
I've done a heinous deed
How it started I'll never know
But in my mind it continues to grow

Flipside of reality
Nothing can stop my pain
The screams of an endless torture
All to start an evil reign

I keep on trying to figure it out
The sin that grows inside of me
And for my life I take a bid
So in prison I won't spend my days

Now I know what I did
The blur is an even haze
I try to cope in my head
As they try to crucify me

Flipside of reality
Nothing can stop my pain
The screams of an endless torture
All to start an evil reign

Nothing can ease my pain
Track Name: Millennium
Millennium

There comes a change on the horizon
Yesterday is gone a new day is dawning
Hear the birth cry of tomorrow
Mankind cries out with its final breath

Hear all the cries the sky is falling
Doomsday prophet the end is near
Look to the sky the angels are falling
Armageddon time the end is here

Enter the Millennium
Turn of the century
Birth of a new dawn
Yesterday fades to a hell on earth
Hellspawn rise
With mother Earth’s rebirth

All the rivers will turn to blood
And the sun will scorch the earth
It marks the death of day dawn of the dead
Souls all scream as they turn in their graves

Enter the Millennium
Turn of the century
Birth of a new dawn
Yesterday fades to a hell on earth
Hellspawn rise
With mother Earth’s rebirth
Track Name: Circle
Circle

Some people say that life is a circle
And our paths will surely cross again
Others say history repeats itself
And we can learn from others mistakes

I can see the pattern starting
The circle of life is dawning
On the next generation of temporal souls
In this here today gone tomorrow time

Our time is short on this world
But we still keep our mortality
With the ending coming near
We keep our good cheer
Being judged helps define our morality

The end we are evading
The circle of life is fading
On the x-generation of temporary souls
In this moment in time

Like a ring
More precious than gold
A never ending cycle
To eternity

The experience of life
Seems to have no point
As we reflect we find the meaning

The questions of youth
Need our answers
To help them through the struggle of life

I can see the patterns endless
The circle of life's complete
Bring in the next generation of mislead souls
They will learn from our mistakes

A never ending cycle
To eternity
Track Name: No Escape
No Escape

I am there when you're asleep
I am there when you're awake
Soon you'll come to realize
That there's no escape

From your precious slumber
To your unconscious state
Gather your wits about you
You'll need them when you wake

Around every turn - No Escape
In the safest place - No Escape
There before you know - No Escape
For you there's no escape - No Escape

Dark fingers reach out to you
Hands grasp for you to take
Pull you ever downward
To your pathetic fate

In your futile absence
No one can hear you scream
No one to guide you
To save you from yourself

Around every turn - No Escape
In the safest place - No Escape
There before you know - No Escape
For you there's no escape - No Escape
Track Name: Too Late
Too Late

The four minute warning sounded three ago
The bombs are coming and now they're going to blow
The fire in the sky means the end is near
We're sending ours off so you'd better stand clear

Too late to run and hide
Too late its genocide
Too late the Earth is fried
Too late you're going to die

Thirty seconds to impact and then you're going to know
There is no hope when the planet starts to glow
Radiation poisoning is in the air we breathe
When everybody's gone there will be no time to grieve

Too late to run and hide
Too late its genocide
Too late the Earth is fried
Too late you're going to die

Only ten seconds remains of your life
Say goodbye to your family, friends and wife
There's no way to stop it you've waited too long
But you've always known that the bombs are fucking wrong

Too late to run and hide
Too late its genocide
Too late the Earth is fried
Too late it's fucking goodbye

It's too fucking late
Track Name: Escape the Blackness
Escape the Blackness

Crawling through the sand
Fingernails to pull myself ahead
Must I escape or must I lose
Now the contest is over and now so am I

The black rain has started falling
The moon and stars have gone away
The Earth is blanketed in a black cloud
Why the fuck did we ever let this happen

There's nothing nothing nothing anymore
SDI really didn't help at all
Every country has now been destroyed
While politicians are living underground
Track Name: Here Today, Gone Tomorrow
Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Building arms to keep the peace
Population in decrease
See the silos all around
It's time to start living underground

I don't think I want to see
What life after the bomb will be
After the flash there's no decay
It's all tax free, nothing to pay

Here today gone tomorrow
All this nations death and sorrow
Progress caused this disgrace
Wiping out the human race

Who are they to play with life
We all live at the end of their knife
No authority, no control
When war breaks out the Earth's going to blow

The position of God is already filled
But they have the power to get us killed
Our existence is such a shame
But we have no one else to blame

Here today gone tomorrow
All this nations death and sorrow
Progress caused this disgrace
Wiping out the human race
