Track Name: VORTEX
Verse 1:

I can see what you're doing
been around for a while

who do you think you're foolin'?
when you turn my dials

sucked into the vortex
where nothing is true

when this wheel stops turning
the gun is pointed at you


Buried in deep
now it roams free

what's left to see
of my sanity? spiraling out of control

Verse 2:

I know what you're thinking
you're done with me

not so fast sweet child
there's something I'm gonna need

nothing comes that easy
first the bait now the hook

your blood is the payofff
so give back what you took


Cannot break the hex
of my own vortex
Verse 1:

Lying wide awake late at night
I see a sudden flash of light

Are these explosions in my head?
or have they come back from the dead?


Black rains are falling
under nuclear skies lies skies lies

Verse 2:

Pins and needles under my skin
The suit I'm in is wearing thin

The glow of death is seeping in
frozen in time like plastic men

Verse 3:

The taste of metal in my mouth
facing the radiation cloud

no protocol to follow now
much rather die than break the vow
Verse 1:

I draw blood and you're the first to know
just don't ask who has come before

Tangled in the web of lies
flesh and blood is always first ignored

your words dead vehicles
defend the indefensible

half truths to really reel them in
your path is irreversible


Burning alive but I cannot feel it
remove the eyes but you do not see it

blowing some smoke but we will not breathe it
selling false hope to those who don't need it (to live)

Verse 2:

I sit back and watch you dig a hole
don't trust a single word you say

I would laugh but it's debatable
whether you're serious anyway

how long will you wear the mask?
you bought in but sold out everyone

nothing more for us to talk about
the damage has already be done

Thank god you've got the answers for us all
Thank god you've got the answers for us all
Track Name: NUMB
Verse 1:

The wounds are healing
but the blood is hardly dry

my head's so messed up
thanks to all the goddamn lies

no longer care that we're losing precious time
we die each day and I call it eternal life


Waiting for tomorrow that never comes
Scheming every day to end it all

Burning every bridge put in front of me
waiting for so long that I've gone numb

Verse 2:

You know it's true that I am never coming back
an endless nightmare taking everything I have

It makes no difference who the fuck is wrong or right
We die each day and I call it eternal life

Waiting so long that I've gone numb
Waiting so long that I've gone numb
Verse 1:

Every day is the perfect day to die
beaten down but given no reasons why

theres a place inside of me that bleeds
never stops spawning evil seeds

so I fight to keep it all tied down
but the loudest scream never makes a sound

pretending to be just like you
doing what it is I think you want me to


Feed the open scar you bleed to see the other side
won't get very far until you hear the demons cry

Verse 2:

In a matter of time the truth will be revealed
and you'll see our fate was long ago sealed

always had a place in hell to call my own
and I've been left standing at the gates alone

now I'm blind even though I clearly see
all the cuts you delivered ran too deep

rest assured that you are the reason why
every day is the perfect day to die


I wanted to give it all to you
but you cut me loose too soon

what's the price I pay to live
when theres nothing left to give
Verse 1:

I open up the veins to bleed again
but there is nothing there

Been played the fool now for so long
the truth itself became the dare

Buried alive by time and space
my life is that on which they feed

Then just as I try to surrender I'm
told that there is no need


Hold onto nothing once again
Life is the game no one will win

Verse 2:

Thoughts of demise deep in my mind
and I cannot just turn the tide

They spew the lies that we deny
but when they pry we open wide

there is no point there is no hope
there is no future for the damned

I am the keeper of the darkness
that resides in every man
Track Name: FULL BLOOM
Verse 1:

I will break you if I try
even long after I die

doors of sorrow opened wide
through the window in my mind
(I'll take you right down with me)


Full Bloom
Grips you
Born fools

Verse 2:

Don't try reasoning with me
I'm a lock without a key

just a message burned in time
put away but did no crime
(each day I live this nightmare)
Verse 1:

I was helpless as I sat inside your womb
Or was I just sitting inside of my tomb?

Hard to say decay had taken hold so strong
Or have I just been paranoid this goddamn long?


Hold it inside don't let them see that
the longer the life the more that they will bleed

Verse 2:

Deep inside you know we're at the very end
Past the point of no return once again

You have let too many years slip right by
Do not think you can escape the reapers eyes

Chorus 2:

Silent voices once told me that
the longer the life the more that they will bleed


These walls are thin and I can hear the cries
from the other side

Don't know if I should turn and walk away
or step into the hive

The louder the screams become the less I hear
clinging to this blade

I try to run but the deed is done
once again too late
