Track Name: Unspeakable Truth
I am caught between two evils
To be conscious is a curse
When I'm sleeping, my mind is like a prison
And I don't know which is worse

I am trapped inside a nightmare
And it seems to me perverse
That I cannot sleep forever, though I want to
Longing to be nothing, dreaming of a hearse

I am looking for release

It wouldn't take too much to break me open
I wouldn't feel ashamed if I let go
The king of corpses shows his teeth
The screaming in my skull won't cease
I am bored of breathing
I am looking for release

This vicious longing eats at my convictions
And I am called a sinner by the righteous
As I struggle with the beast
And the voices of temptation
Won't leave me in peace
Track Name: The Second Fall of Man
Night is never-ending
Streets are littered with our bones
Flames are always hungry
Our eyes becoming stones

Why did we keep living for the promises of death?
When had we forgotten we were stealing every breath?

Earth is sick with shadow
Sky is darkened like a bruise
Air is thick with poison
No hope left for us to lose

Why did we keep living for the promises of death?
When had we forgotten we were stealing every breath?
How could we have stopped it, broken as we are?
The end will come as soon as we swallow every star
Track Name: Last Gasp
I hear the silence echo without air
Praying to no one, no one is there

Vengeful darkness, rancid flesh
Spellbound victim, worshipper of death

I fall to my knees
I gasp for breath
Swallowing the moonlight
Amorous of death
Track Name: Descent
I descend to the ninth darkness
Where the light has never been
And I pretend that my solipsitic warcry
Won't kill me in the end

Yesterday I didn't dare to suffer
Tomorrow I won't care enough to speak

Yesterday I couldn't face the daylight
Tomorrow I won't make it through the night

And I'm alone when she's not there
I am broken by her tongue
I'm alone when she's not there
I am voiceless, made of stone
I'm alone when she's not there
I am vanished, I am numb
I'm alone when she's not there
I am never coming home
