Track Name: My Ecstasy
I see, echoing the darkness around me
faceless, persona of my sin
Escape, not an option, I know I'm condemned to hell
imprisoned, self corruption, why do I hate myself

I've lost it
fucked up devotion
the walls are just closing in
implosive
self corrosion
all over my cracking...
SKIN (4)

Oblivious to the evil within me
Rip, it away, tearing all, that i know
as the skin falls burning from my broken bones
scorch the flesh, all my tears, turn to ash, in my mouth
delving deep into the dark and the unknown

Laughter, echoing the voices around me
pressure, building in my head
Escape, not an option, I know I'm condemned to hell
imprisoned, self corruption, why do I hate myself

I've lost it
fucked up devotion
the walls are closing in
implosive
self erosion
all over my cracking...
SKIN (4)

I got a deep evil burning within me
Rip, it away, tearing all, that I know
as the skin falls burning from my broken bones
scorch the flesh, all my tears, turn to ash, in my mouth
delving deeper into the dark and unknown

I know inside there is no way out
out of this prison that I built brick by brick
can I turn the sight of myself
with the enemy I know that's inside

Track Name: Hollow Dreams
VERSE:
slowly i rise,
to take up again,
this mantle of sadness
for what seemed so long ago!
now it is time
to wake up again
from this nightmare
hollow dreams of a distant shore!

CHORUS:
that day it burns in me
those shadows swallow me
lost in this memory
now i truly see

VERSE:
remember life
and how it used to be
forgotten in time
another world beyond an open door
will death oblige
reuniting us
on the other side
memories of you distort

CHORUS:
that day it burns in me
these shadows swallow me
lost in this memory
now i truly see

VERSE:
these shadows lie
whispers fading
caught in the wake of a... (3)
dream i cant alight
from this night
No way, no way out of here
whispers fading
these shadows lie, thieves cant deny!
caught in the wake of a... (5)
no more, no more, never again!
caught in the wake of a... (2)
losing my way
i dont know where i can go.
trapped in my hollow...
i dont know where i can go...
trapped in my hollow dreams.
Track Name: The Descent
the decent into a hypnotic rage!
breaking out this prison, this fucking cage!
no drugs can calm my soul
decent into the dark of night!

underestimate me now?
how dare you wear that crown!
cant mask the rising tide
separate the weakness
gaze thru the looking glass
see the present, future and past
no tears for those who died
my rage is infectious

i listen for your lies
decent into abhorrence (2)
I See You!
In a matter shattered!
I Free You!
DECENT INTO ABHORRENCE!

the decent into a hypnotic rage!
breaking out this prison, this fucking cage!
no drugs can calm my soul
decent into the dark of night!

black is white and red is night
seeing shadows in a pale light!
i hide, you seek
never finding that relief
seeing clear the unforeseen
as it rushes up to me
my end, terminate
realize there's no escape!

i listen for your lies
decent into abhorrence (2)
I See you!
Seeing shadows No One!
Knows But ME!
DECENT INTO ABHORRENCE!
