Track Name: Prometheus
Fading to grey
As morality consumes my conscience
Drawing the line
Between sin and celebration

We have a choice to be men or monsters

Engineer your well-being
Live in praise and drown in your pride

I am your paragon
I am your paragon

Gaze at the skies
Laughing at our lives
We struggle to decipher good from evil
Stare at the sun
As morality comes undone
Denying the answer of ambiguity

Morality is an enigma
We have a choice to be men or monsters

Now is the time to stand
Are you indifferent or are you careless?
Now's the time to stand
Now is the time to stand

Fading to grey
As morality consumes my conscience
Drawing the line
Between sin and celebration

I am your Paragon
Revel in my being, study my choices
I am your paragon
Cry my name for equivocacy
Track Name: Harbinger
I have a bloodlust that can not be sated
Forever hunting my prey
I'm not a tactical savant, nor a vessel of ferocity
but an unavoidable constant
sprint in terror as i approach
your youthful blood may time encroach

Does my silhouette inspire dread?
Does my existence corrupt your darkest dreams?
I am the man with no face

Though I am perceived as malevolent
I have no intent, I am not an essence of brilliance
nor a violent wind, but an unavoidable constant

I come for the young and the disenchanted
Held captive to the throes of their minds
I can give everlasting solace
My touch petrifies

You were mine, and you meant nothing
You were mine, and you meant nothing

Entrapment is certain
My presence pierces the body and haunts the heart
There is no appreciation for the sustenance you provide
There is no destiny, only certainty

To reap in pure delight
I stalk the meek for advantage

I am the man with no face
I hunger
my presence pierces the body and haunts the heart
There's no appreciation

I'm not a tactical savant nor a vessel of ferocity
But an unavoidable constant
Track Name: Desolate
All this time
We basked in freedom
Bound by the chains of choice or god
Look into the eyes of the enslaved
Whose smiles do not deceive

Those who strive for change are afraid of the present
Unable to conform
Their lives, miserable

Those who wish for a static dystopia
With hands that cannot shape paradise
Their minds, perished

Those who strive for change are afraid of the present
Unable to conform

God is an excuse for scientific ignorance

I've conquered continents and sundered ocean depths
My mind's obsidian and you're it's greatest threat

God is an excuse for scientific ignorance
A source of solace for the unwavering
You believe in a greater power

Those who strive for change are afraid of the present
Unable to conform, unable to conform

An authority for the adamant
You celebrate your answers because you are terrified
Terrified that your answers make you god
Track Name: Sovereign
Joy is the answer to all dissatisfaction
Laughter is the key ending despair

But how can we gain these benefits?
When everyday seems like it never ends
I hope it swallows me
I hope it takes my life

Buried alive in guilt
I haven't beared a smile since they've faded away
I strive for happiness
A simple chemical reaction

When will this end?

I must do something to end this curse
I must foster logical thoughts
I hope to swallow dread
I hope to take its life

Joy is the answer to all dissatisfaction
Laughter is the key to ending despair
I have discovered two cures
Time and chemicals

Time is the answer to all dissatisfaction
Chemicals are the key to ending despair
Never in my life have I been so comforted
Knowing we can manipulate our minds

Time is the answer to all dissatisfaction
Chemicals are the key to ending despair
Time is the answer
Chemicals are key

Reign of terror
Despression exits as a coward
Reign of terror no more
Track Name: Like Clockwork
I know the secret of life
You are nothing to anyone but yourself
Do you really know the world?
Or are you living in a dream inside your head?

All that you think you know
Everything that you think you see
Calculated reactions of what you percieve
Electrical signals dictate your thoughts
Your sense of self, your memories
Reduceable to math and chemistry
Biological machines running like clockwork
But we're still nothing more than machines

Cling to your religion if you must
It won't help you in the end
Your feelings of salvation
Psychological fabrication

If your life is too hard without your god
Then go ahead and die on your knees
Become food for the worms
You're not cut out for this brave new world

I find it hard to care about loss of life
Maybe because I know it too well
To exist one moment and not the next
Rejoin the earth, the only fucking place we know

Do you really know the world?
Or are you living in a dream inside your head?
Biological machines running like clockwork
But we're all still nothing more than machines
Track Name: Leviathan
We are the ones who prey on reality
We are the ones who stalk those who sleep
We are the ones who bear no forgiveness
We are the ones who seize advantage

Back and forth
You slumber restlessly
Begging for peace of mind
Begging for peace of mind

Your problems will not end
Until you present them with the operant
And take what is yours

The only universal means of understanding is pain
Pain is an understanding

We will deliver and you will see
I am the sole reason there is reciprocity

Free your conscience
Or suffer in our name
Free your conscience
Your power is to blame

We are the ones who understand your sorrow
We are the ones who understand your pain

Side to side
You slumber restlessly
Begging for peace of mind
Begging for peace of mind

Your problems will not end
Until you present them with the operant
And take what is yours

We will deliver
And you will see
