Track Name: Piece Of The Pie
breaking my back every fucking day
you sit on your hands and it's all coming your way
no efforts made but you still dare to complain
enjoy the comfort while we're out in the rain
victim of circumstance you're a fucking disgrace
something needs to be done while you're hiding your face

first in line to claim a piece of the pie
you're never there to do the dirty work
but you still want a piece of the pie

first one in line to hold up your hand
pure laziness, unwilling to understand
another wasted day of your wasted life
another wasted lifeform with nothing in sight
Track Name: Save Me
kiss the sky goodnight, pulled through another day
minutes turn to hours to days and weeks, nothings stays
burning time, dwelling in loneliness
another step forward to total regress

in fear to stay behind I leap into the dark
no one to catch me when I fall, save me
take me by the hand, lead me the way
I haven't got the courage to find the light of day

save me

something changed and made me this way
pacing inside my cage, seeking the calm
every way I turn brings me pain and unrest
my blood runs cold but my hart still beats inside my chest

give me back my youth with the knownledge I obtained
just to try and prevent the way I changed
everything I've tried turned to total demise
take a look see the world through me eyes
Track Name: Burning Inside
never knew what I've done wrong
stuck in a hole far too long
but now I'm out and insecure
how many times will I endure

and it keeps on itching, it keeps on hurting
it keeps on eating away at me

I'm burning inside despite all I've tried

for me the die is cast
when dwelling on the past
seems to be the only answer
can't let go of this lovelike cancer

I'm burning my time away

I've got to free myself from my own hell
I'll meet my maker at the bottom of a wishing-well
Track Name: My Own Enemy
forced into this treacherous world I'm losing grip
my mind awaits the trigger to release the bullet from the clip
I'm on the wrong track drifting further away
no hope in coming back, I'm signing off today

all the hope in me died but I keep looking up
no matter how many times I'm close to giving up
and every time I do wrong and know it's too late
there's always something new to cross my path and fuel my hate

I try and try to find a brighter side
in a life with nothing left to decide
stuck in a mold, a slave to the grind
just another fool with nothing but money on his mind

wasted days and nights it's all the same
just trying to find a way to escape your little mind game
and every moment in life I fucked up made me see
there's nothing else that makes me more enraged than me

I'm my own enemy
there's nothing left for me in this world
Track Name: Empty Inside
empty words easily spoken
three little words used as a token of affection
but now affection's denied
I once cared but I left it behind

not asking for an explantion, I always knew that this wouldn't last
tried my best to change the situation, but your head's up your ass

went back on everything you ever said
your love was like a curse
a connection that we never had
now you choke on your words

cold hearted, snake eyed, two faced, spread wide
and accept the fact you're empty inside

Track Name: All I Ask
all I ask

I gave you all I had, got a kick in the ass
stand by my side was all I ever asked
it happened once, should've known it would happen again
now alone stands the hand I promised to lend

the more stale your lies got, the more they hurt
two-count-two times I've been burnt
lured again into your worn out trap
stand by my side was all I ever asked

bitch, that's right, bitch
Track Name: Left For Dead
running through my frozen mind, dreams of hearing laughter
cold awakening bitterness, misery hereafter

love won't wake me up anymore
love won't wake me up

cast down from something that is no longer mine
true sense of loneliness has got me confined

left for dead, I'll face this world on my own
real rain pours down, misery keeps me calm
find me a place above or below
a place to call home, a face to call my own
Track Name: Your Ignorance
whoever asked you to waste all of my time
not gonna listen to you boggle my mind
I have to sit here and sift through your shit
nobody's listening, we don't have to deal with it

your ignorance will lead you nowhere

nothing you say will ever change the way I feel
I know these wounds won't ever fucking heal
never hestitated to shut your fucking mouth
your opinion we can live without

don't wanna hear it but you leave me no choice
I'll slice my ears off to stop hearing your voice
now I got to sit here while your words fry my brain
another minute of your shit will drive me insane

your ignorance will lead you to your fucking grave

as I gaze down on you descend into the abyss
true satisfaction, a face I'll never miss

never miss
Track Name: Deceiver
trying my best to be a better man
live up to expectations, do the best that I can
constant misfortune, envy and deceit
daily fucking problems for me to beat

fools spent hours trying to cut me down
wasting all their energy slander around
paranoia prevails but I'm keeping my cool
I need to live my life for me and not for fools

deceiver, condemned all my sins
deceiver, the punishment within

mistakes I have made hunt me down forever
wasted my life beating myself up
making amends better late than never
time for your guilt trip to fucking stop

refuse to live a life driven by vengeance
holding on to what I've got
gotta stick to all my best intentions
while in misery you rot, whore
Track Name: Alone
defeated, lost, no place to call home
stuck in a void, sick and tired, cold and distant
no need for your acceptance, I'll make it on my own
waiting for the end, redemption's out of sight

living to die, won't play your games no more
living to die, no hope forevermore

overpaid my dues, bound to lose, no hope, no dreams, no clue
how to live this life, don't know which way to choose

now I've turned everywhere I can go
and it sickens me to face the truth
I am alone, alone
I'm in this alone

there's gotta be a way to find shelter from the storm
of shit raining down on me for escaping the norm
I'm losing this fight

running down the road of life, it's covered with mud
there's no other way to get away from the flood
my eyes are pouring out my head, I'm going insane
everything ends in pain
Track Name: Serve The Beast
the hunger building up as your eyes start to twitch
sweaty palms, rubber legs, but you can't stop the itch
craving to ingest, but it's out of reach, serve the beast

my thoughts are choking me, the lights are blinding
seeking peace and calm, but I can't find it
a slave to my body, martyr of mind, serve the beast

it's gonna get you, it's gonna eat me alive
serve the beast
frantic self destruction, god's creation deceased
you can run but it'll get you, serve the beast

the rattling of the shackles my hands are tied
no escape from this disease, I know I fucking tried
shaking and sweating, gotta get a fix
the days are never-ending until I hit the bricks
