Track Name: I, Creator
I am the creator,
I am your saviour,
worship me,
bow at my fucking feet, bow at my fucking feet,
A new era of humanity is in my hands,
I’ve found the power to control, through sleepless nights and endless days,
I persist in my battle for eternity,
I have saved humanity
Hung from this noose, our very existence,
Hung from this noose, we're bleeding out,
I’ve cut the rope, I’ve cut the rope,
I am the creator, I don't serve a higher cause,
I am god.
Track Name: The Weathering
We’ve lost control, we’ve lost control,
This hurricane season is longer than ever, the storm never seems to pass,
This turbulence is relentless, floods of this rain,
How long will it last?
We won’t outlast this downpour!

We’ve lost control, we’ve lost our home to this raging storm,
We close our eyes, to these darkened days,
Will this be forever?

The scorching heat, the drying leaves,
Forest fires and the spread of disease,
This is the system we left in control,
Is this the end? Is this how we fall?
Is this how we fall?!
I just want to see the sun again,
Is this how we fall?!

The beaming sun blinds my eyes
Frost bitten fingers clench,
Rain pours from the sky and I can not see an end,

Watch as the waves swell up and swallow everything you've ever loved and ever cared for,
Why can’t you see this is our demise?
The last of our species, the last of our lives,
Is this how we fall?
I just want to see the sun again,
Is this how we fall?
When will it end?!
Track Name: Become Death
"Few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.'" - Robert Oppenheimer

Looking at the damage I’ve caused,
This world will be in ruins throughout the decades,
The path of which I’ve walked for so many years is fucked,
By my endless passion to become a god,
A creator of life, a saviour of souls,
But I have become death!
I have seen fire burn, all I love,
I have seen ashes flying above it all.
Track Name: Devil's Duplicate
There is a demon inside of me, It longs to be set free,
Torment me no longer, I’m fucking giving in,
Celebrate the nightmare, that's born from within,
Again and again and again,
This demon still haunts me, can’t you see this my friends,
I long for this dream, to be set free,
From this hell within, Stop, restart, begin,
With every misleading whisper, with every broken thought
I fight the temptation, to ruin, everything you are,
Its time to excite the devil in my mind, its time to excite the devil in my mind,

Oh, can you hear me?
Can you see me? Together we’ll rise never fall,
Oh, can you hear me?
Can you see me? Together we’ll rise never fall,

My life is haunted, show me a means to an end,
Show me what its like to feel again,
Live with me, fight with me, die with me
Can you hear me? Can you see me?

The hollow man, believes in nothing but lust, the lust forgiveness the lust for and end,
The hollow man, believes in nothing but lust, the lust forgiveness the lust for and end,
End to this nightmare.
Track Name: The Tribunal
I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth,
But how do you know right from wrong?
When you can’t even tell their emotions from your own,
Stare blank and cold, you did this to yourselves to see,
These machines don’t show forgiveness or sincerity,

3 years have passed since the dawning of his grief,
Today is the day, he releases the chains,

Give me a voice,
Lend me your ears to hear this whisper,
These words in my head, pulled out laid bare,
Here no one is innocent,

Rise, from this tide of guilt,
Rise, no ones going to save your self,
Rise, afloat in this ocean,
You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn how to swim,

Do you even know what its like to feel?
You sit in those stands, judging with no place for compassion,
Stare down on me, look down on me,
Against this will of lies,
I will not concede, I will not concede,

Rise, from this tide of guilt,
Rise, no ones going to save your self,
Rise, afloat in this ocean,
You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn how to swim.
