Track Name: Inside Your Head
A quarter of a century, apparently means nothing,
Had your back for so long, now you left us behind
Ignorant and arrogant, you pushed and pushed away
Blind to see the path, and that you led yourself astray

Chorus:
Friends will turn, before you swallow your pride
Back and forth, you never make up your mind
You could never take back, all those things you said
It must be a crazy world, living inside of your head

So hard to deal with the truth
So hard to admit to your mistakes
Doomed to live your life in solitude
Left us all so filled with rage

Lost track of reality, now in touch with hypocrisy
Never satisfied with anything, there’s always something to complain about
You think that everyone’s against you; well guess what? Fuck you
Turned your back on your brothers after all that we’ve been through
Track Name: My Spine (Cast You Out)
Take me, you evil, you vile, take my life at will
I do not fear you, your power, I have lived in hell
You’ve taken enough now, I am bound, I am the will of man
I do not stand down, or give ground, I’ll fight you everyday
I cut you, I cast you out

You will not break us, our bond will stand against the tide
You think you hold us, control us, dictating all our lives
We will enslave you and pull through, every single time
We will not stand down, or give ground, we’ll fight you everyday
We cut you, we cast you out

My spine is the strongest fucking thing you have ever seen in your goddamn life
We are not afraid, we are love not hate, taking back the day, you will not take this life
Track Name: Never Repent
As I am crossing over the line of memory
I have never felt regret or pangs of sympathy
I commit my actions, there is no misery
I’m a beast to all, I’m a friend to some, alive and conquering

Chorus:
I will arise with the face of a demon
I will arise with the face of a friend
I am alive because I have conquered
I have no sorrow, no act to amend

There is still no sorrow, though my heart is full of pain
I can hold my head up high and still believe in me
Cast out every reason you’d wish to change the past
And tell them all, with their fucking stares, you can kiss my ass

Chorus

They’ll try to tell you, they’ll try to trick you
Tear all the evil out of your soul
Keep it inside you, letting it shine though
Evil is part of what makes you whole

Never repent that which you are
Track Name: Dead Song
So far gone but still on mind,
A plague that comes in the night,
Where have you gone my brothers?
You are gone but not forgotten.

The voices trapped in my head,
The dead are rising again,
My guilt at still drawing breath,
Still trapped inside of your death.

The waves of anger and loss,
Your lives were taken by force,
You're gone and I'm still breathing,
You're dead and I'm still bleeding.

Still alive I've got the dead inside.

I want to reach through the void,
Re-take the breath of your life,
Inside there's none of you left,
Only what still beats in my chest.

The voices trapped in my head,
The dead are rising again,
My guilt at still drawing breath,
Still trapped inside of your death.

The whiskey quiets my mind,
It doesn't make it alright,
It helps to numb out the pain,
Keeps me from screaming your name.

Still alive I've got the dead inside (me).

So far gone but still on mind,
A plague that comes in the night,
Where have you gone my brothers?
You are gone but not forgotten.

The voices trapped in my head,
The dead are rising again,
My guilt at still drawing breath,
Still trapped inside of your death.

The waves of anger and loss,
Your lives were taken by force,
You're gone and I'm still breathing,
You're dead and I'm still bleeding.

Still alive I've got the dead inside (me).
Track Name: Nothing Dies Forever
The outbreak, we survived,
Maybe our love kept us alive,
I say alive, but you were bit,
Come down with fever, sick as shit,
I hold you close, I kiss your eyes,
I'll stay with you until you die,
Until you die, until you turn,
Until you rise, never interred.

Because nothing dies forever.

I'm sorry dear, to tie you down,
Pull your teeth out of your mouth,
It's such a shame to take your pretty smile,
Possessed of venom, wholly vile,
Now we lay, upon the ground,
I hold you close, I wrap arms around,
Here, inside, I'll keep you safe,
Warm with life, cold as the grave,

Because nothing dies forever.

Glass, it breaks and here they come,
They come to take away my love,
In the dark where I can blend,
I hide in shadows to defend,
Slicing through Achilles tendon,
I'll grind their bones to make your bread,
You are fed yet I still hunger,
This is not...

This is not the end.

Now as one, I slip inside,
Remember warmth before you died,
Taste the curse upon your breath,
The fever rising, bringing death,
Close to climax, feel the change,
I'm craving flesh, I've gone insane,
Together in death we do descend,
This is not...

This is not the end,
Nothing Dies forever,
‘Cause this is not the end...
Track Name: Not God's Will
When I was a child, I looked up to the cross
Now a man, with open eyes, my innocence is lost
This is not God’s will

Heed these bible verses, or your soul will burn in hell
For I am God, I’m your only hope and my love is for sale
This is not God’s will
For I am the way and my love is for sale

Power. Murder. Violence. Rape. Extort. Control. Silence. Hate.

This is not God’s will
For I am the way and my love is for sale

I created God and wrote the volumes of his word
Through the voice of millions I infect the earth
I am a man of passions I publicly abhor
Rape the world I am absolved, it’s I who wrote the law

Heed thee the word of God
Track Name: Cradle
This cradle starts a life, that’s safe and free from harm
A sheltered warm life in a small suburban town
This cradle in a corner, the young boy he looks on
He’s stuck in this world, but from the cradle he has come
Cradle is remembered, a boy of nine or ten
Safety from the feeling of the back of his father’s hand

Cradle and grave, we’re born to die
Cradle and grave, we’re not alive

This cradle is now fading, the young boy views the stone
His parent’s fights are what will keep him alone
He’s married to a woman, to them a child is born
And in that child’s room, a cradle like his own
Abusive to his family, he hasn’t got much left
Beats them every day, he’s his father’s son at best

Cradle and grave, we’re born to die
Cradle and grave, we’re not alive

In to room, gun in hand
In to cradle, climbs the man
Chamber locked, mind astray
Gun to head, blows himself away

Cradle and grave, wasted life, cradle and grave
Track Name: Carcinoma (Y.C.K.M.M.F.)
Laughed it off when they said it’s inside of me
Swallow my fear and chase it with whiskey
Poisoned now by the skin I was born in
Vow to fight back, a crushing resistance

Chorus:
Radiate or rip the flesh out
Carcinoma
Slit my throat and watch it bleed
Carcinoma
This is not my time of dying
Carcinoma
Death takes only my disease
Carcinoma

Betrayed by my body, complicit companion
Don’t give a fuck you won’t take me from me
Power of will and strength of conviction
Never give up I never concede

Chorus

This is not what I believed it would come to
Holding head high in the land of the dead
I’m scared and I’m fighting off all of my demons
Death gets the finger, he can’t have me yet

Rise like a phoenix, head into battle
Surviving on what’s left of adrenaline
This is my fight and I go unbeaten
Know in my heart you won’t take me from me

Chorus

You can’t kill me motherfucker
