Track Name: No Faith
Alone I suffer this burden of life
Cold existence, only feel pain
Masking my hatred, burning desires
As the world shows another crooked smile

You tied the knot in the rope
That hung me out to dry
Now I'm condemned to face
The disgust, the waste, a world of lies

No faith

Disconnect from a false reality
Bring this world to it's knees
Mankind is all so weak

Nothing left to love

You tied the knot in the rope
That hung me out to dry
Now I'm condemned to face
The disgust, the waste, the world of lies

No fucking faith.
Track Name: Death Toll
Telling lies for lust
Putting faith in the greedy and corrupt
Owned by misery, so you seek your company between the bed sheets

Getting off on every broken promise that you tell yourself
Chained to your vices but you hide
behind a crooked cross
I don't follow with closed eyes
I still deny, to survive

Searching for truth
In an age of lies
No Peace, No Salvation,
Let the death toll rise

The worlds just become a prison cell
Mind locked, key lost, personal hell
There is no escape, forever remain
Trapped in Purgatory

No peace
No salvation
Let the death toll rise.
Track Name: Surrender
Abandoned all sense of reason
Is this all just in my head?
Shut out, not letting anyone in
Am I the only one to blame?

I can't break free
I'm sinking faster into darker days
Living to suffer
Try and see the world
Through my fucking eyes

Can't look past the misery & shame
Pain never seems to fade
Isolate myself, has to be a way
To forget a past that's pulling me away

Surrender this pain
to find my peace

Does it please you, to see a broken man?
Never will you hear my cries again
Confusion is weighing in
Is this an end or where reality begins?

(Hand in hand with death)

It's at a point where I ask myself: What's the fucking use?
Everyday I put my mind through a cycle of abuse.
I try and try to search for an answer.
Truth lies at the end of a burning rope

Surrender this life
There is no Hope
Track Name: Season In Pain
Strung up your own rope
Hanging by the last thread of hope
Mind in solitary confinement
Locked away forever in your own head
We've all got our demons, but it's time to realize
Your bullshit act is done with open eyes.

You point a finger and tear down everyone else
Because you're discontent and can't love yourself
It's a fact you've accepted defeat
That makes you crawl through life on your knees

So stay shackled to your excuses
That will pull you further down
Feel the weight of your actions
So much guilt and sorrow

Season In Pain
Reap what you sow
Track Name: Gospel Of War (ft. Jacob Justice)
Selfish men, lying breed
Law of the land powered by greed
Face a harsh reality
The streets bleed with brutality

Desperate times, I see only enemies
World plagued by the human disease
Too blind to see what you've become
Last nail driven, what's done is done

Judgement day is here
I serve no man, only death

I was born by fire,
Hardened by lies and deceit
Disciplined in the art of pain
Mind chained by insanity

Gospel of war
Judgement handed down

Take my hand I offer fear and disease
Scorch the earth of the mentally weak
And from the ashes rises my tyranny
Behold, I, minister of the siege
A gospel of war is what I preach
Bringing your world to it's fucking knees

Smash the crown of an empire
Run, you thin skinned fuck
My destiny, to reign

Gospel of war
All shall bow to me
