Track Name: Bad News
No love only hate
How can one love a dying breed
A constant struggle to see the light
in these dark situations

Honestly I hate to live like this
Hiding alone in a cold dark place
A colored world and all we see is gray
Where we were destined to die
and visit hell on the way

Maybe one day we'll learn to change
And live a life like you're fucking saints
But until then I am here to say
You were all a waste with a fucked up fate
Fuck
I was baptized in hate

Negativity is my favorite thing
Hitting things just to watch myself bleed
I know I shouldn't let it get the best of me
But it's the only way I know to cope with the pain

Negativity is my symphony
Clenching fist is music to my ears
A hateful man on a hateful planet
And I've been that way for years

That's who I've always been.
And I'm not changing now.

Born into hell.
Track Name: Guillotine
Are you afraid?
Does the aesthetic of blood make you tremble or are you afraid to linger with the deceased?

We are the guillotine.
We live this life with the fear inside
that we cannot hide
but we musn't lie
we know that
We are the guillotine.
Can we recreate these cowardly ways to change our fate or are we broken?
We are the guillotine.
We live this life with the fear inside
that we cannot hide
but we musn't lie
we know that
We are the guillotine.

Preach no faith
Judge no traits
Each life can't be tamed
We live by our own ways
I shall not fear
for if death does appear
at least I won't have to live in disgust.

Live every day like they're digging your grave
Burn my casket I won't be a waste
Live by the second and not by the day
Make the struggle worth the pain
Live every day like they're digging your grave
Like they're digging your grave
Burn my casket I won't be a waste

Follow the serpent but stay on a sacred path
Take on the task of crafting your own fate
Follow the serpent but stay on a sacred path
Take on the task of crafting your own fate
Follow me to the gates
Take my hand
I will show you the way

Follow the serpent to the gates
Take my hand
I will show you the way

We are the guillotine.
We live this life with the fear inside
that we cannot hide
but we musn't lie
we know that
We are the guillotine.
Can we recreate these cowardly ways to change our fate or are we broken?
We are the guillotine.
We live this life with the fear inside
that we cannot hide
but we musn't lie
we know that
We are the guillotine.

Live every day like they're digging your grave
Burn my casket I won't be a waste
Live by the second and not by the day
Make the struggle worth the pain
Live every day like they're digging your grave
Like they're digging your grave
Burn my casket I won't be a waste

We'll rot away until we find a way to break the chains of the ancestral beings.

Watch this life flash through your eyes
Gain another perception

We are the guillotine.
Track Name: Earth Shaker
This is the hymn for the keeper within
Not for the one you praise
Not for the word of my kin
This is the chant for the broken land
Which we forgot to protect
Which we forgot to defend

Earth shaker will rise.
Cleansing us through the tides
Purging off the human bodies
To replenish the poisoned sea.

Drown us rats with your waves of wisdom.
We have forgotten our roots to life.

Too much time wasted on religion, wasted on regrets
Fucking lies or is it true? We don't know but half of it.
Take our time and use it wisely, think of every choice we make
Learning from the mistakes along the way.

Earth shaker.
Surface to reclaim, restore.

Bred to destroy and to consume.
That's all we've ever known.
Fooled by the decoys, mind toyed,
in a war with our own conscious thinking
Loss of real sight in our blind minds
Will we ever better for the sake of life
Look to the sky all that you please, but know the answers within.

The answers within the minds of every individual
We are the weapon causing our world to be a living hell
We must be punished to understand true human nature
We must be punished by the wrath of our true master

Earth shaker

Let your pure waves lead this race through a mental transformation
Executing everyone and everything that defies you, defies the world

We are blind to the truth.
Truth is, it's all our fault.
Track Name: Mt. Dewm
It drives me fucking insane how I can't change anything
No replies cause there's no one listening
We need to embrace the change
There must be a better way to living.

Why cant we learn from our past mistakes?
Did we not learn anything?
Maybe its just our fucked up education
Created by a corrupted nation

Stop putting yourself on a pedestal
You're the same man as me
How could one life feel so damn precious
When you steal from your own just to watch yourself succeed?

You people make me sick
We shouldn't take it all
But what you have you should hide
Because they'll take in plain sight

Something tells me that we may have been down this road before
Past generations paved the way to a locked up door
The key to which is found inside the human mind
Until we open them up, it will always hide

Money power and greed
Not a beautiful thing
Its a sign to me that you're fucking weak
You're fucking weak.

Resurrection of life
This is where we draw the line
Resurrection of life
This is where we draw the line
Too long we've lived this way
I won't watch as we dissipate

Destroy the parameters
The line that separates us from them
Destroy the self centered man
Together we will fight to overcome him

Lets conquer the questions of existence
Lets conquer the puzzle to life
Puzzle to life
Track Name: Oni
Oni, I am the
In a distant haze I sit and wait
for my chance to attack my prey
You're a pitiful sight
You don't deserve a life
You'd love to hear her cry
I'd love to watch you die

I am the reaper
I am the one
sent to collect somber souls under the sun
I am the moral statis between life and death
sent to collect, collect the lives like yours
Who prey on innocent beings that are yet to mature
You took advantage of them
I'll take good care of you
Hanging by your neck
Hope you enjoy the view
Of my favorite color as it drips from you

Slowly, you are fading away
Don't go. Please stay awake
I want to watch your face as I reenact the things you made them see

As you come down onto your knees
there's no forgiveness for the weak
There's no forgiveness for the weak
And as that last tear rolls down your face
this is how it has to be
This is how it has to be.

I am the reaper
I am the one
sent to collect somber souls under the sun
I am the moral statis between life and death
sent to collect, collect the lives like yours
Who prey on innocent beings that are yet to mature
You took advantage of them
I'll take good care of you
Hanging by your neck
Hope you enjoy the view

What a beautiful masterpiece, to watch you bleed
and the abstract it creates
What a beautiful masterpiece
The bright red colors mixing with the steam from the heat

Oni, I am the
I'm breathing down your neck
I'm breathing down your neck
Panting, begging
I'm ready to attack
I'm ready to attack

Piece by piece I will dismember you
Slaughtered like swine
Left to rot

Now that my work is done
I will descend back from where I come
The place where darkness meets light
The place where the living can't survive
A life of harm and constant regret will only bring you to me
Letting the torture begin
I am the protector of life and the provider of death
I am the Oni demon
Track Name: Shipwrecked
Abandon me
I'm lost off shore
Somewhere in your deep blue soul
My ship needs repairing but I have too much pride
Too much pride to admit it
Admit that the current's too strong
I can't change who I've always been

The tide washes over me, cleansing me from my dark disease
There is no cure that can revive the deceased.

So walk with me down this barren beach where there is no light.
Just like a footprint in the sand, your hope fades like mine.

Take me away
Exile is the closest thing to home
Take me away
My heart has been so cold

I've gone insane
For I can't love this world
I'm just a lost soul
Trapped in reality

We are the outcasted
The ones who never had hope
We are the lagging strand
So please just cut the rope

Just let me be
For I'm incomplete

We are the outcasted
The ones who never had hope
We are the lagging strand
So please just cut the rope

Where to begin?
Where do we start?
These visions in my mind, where will we draw the line.
I need to find a new reality.
Let me escape.
