Track Name: Those Creatures Our Leaders
Take a good look into my eyes and read my mind we're a generation lost in degeneration trapped in a circle of distorted minds.

Our voices shout out what we need and what we want but nobody listens, no body gives a fuck.
We see how everyday people can become our shepherds that guide us straight to the edge of the abyss filling our minds with lies and myths of how everything soon will rise.

We will never be heard, never be seen, we will never see the day when we are treated with fairness amongst those selfish creatures called our leaders.

We are a mislaid generation guided to a bottomless pit of depravity.

And how soon will we see the light? of welfare blinding our selfish needs to feed our hunger and thirst with giant fountains of greed.

We can no longer depend on these devouring, grasping and ravenous vultures that fill their craving with the substance of falseness. its the endless decay of ourselfs, now we're drawing the line on what we're willing to take.


We will never be heard, never be seen, we will never see the day when we are treated with fairness amongst those selfish creatures called our leaders.
Track Name: Seven Years
It's been so long since the last time I saw your face it seems unreal
How have you been I hope you've made it to that special place
Day by day ever since you left, day by day it's so different
I just can't picture my life with you in it no longer

I can’t see, life with you in it anymore,
All the things you've taught me have blown away
I see you in my dreams from time to time
I know you look down on me

I know you see me from the outside

I know you see me from the outside I know you're there
Looking down on me and wondering what has become of me
Seven years ever since you left, seven years it's so different
If I could only see you one last time I’d be happy

Your loss made me what I am, your loss made me what I've become Your loss made me what I am, what I’ve become
I know I feel your presence I know you’re there, I know you’re there

I can’t see, life with you in it anymore,
All the things you've taught me have blown away
I see you in my dreams from time to time
I know you look down on me
You look down on me!!!
Track Name: Mirrors
We`re wasting our lifes away, we will never change, we live through reflexions!! (bis)

Live your life without a purpose, persuade yourself to an ilusion that you will never reach, that you will never conquer.
You’ll never taste the sweetness of respect, you will always fall the question is will you get back up.

Wishing for something u can’t have, reaching for something you can’t grab, wasting your time on a broken dream that vanished away like ashes.

Like the mirrors that are hanging on the walls you look at the reflection of how everything falls back in the end.

Always wishing, never fighting.

Conformity takes over perseverance at its best. We influence eachother on our tastes, on our acts.
Conformity takes over perseverance at its best. We influence eachother on our tastes, on our acts
We influence eachother on our tastes, on our acts, on our lives.

We are a weak species, named humans but we lack of humanity.
We are a weak species, named people and we lack of personality.

Like the mirrors that are hanging on the wall you look at the reflection of how everything falls back in the end.
Track Name: Sufficiency
I'll take my chances living on my own, with no protection. The need of self-survival is what’s keeping me alive.
I've taken this so far, the only way I can see for myself is to see for others, is to see for the others.
I've got it in me, I just have to get it out of me. No way I can mess this up, cause it’s as messed as it can get. No way i can step back, cause I'm right against the wall. No way I can fall any further, I've hit rock-bottom.

I've never been as selfish with anyone as I've been with myself, as I’ve been with myself.

No way I can mess this up, cause it’s as messed as it can get. No way I can step back, cause I'm right agaisnt the wall. No way I can fall any further, I've hit rock-bottom, no way I can sink anymore, I'm at the bottom of the ocean.

I’ve struggled enough with myself to start caring for anything else, but my own health, but my own life. My own live

I've never been as selfish with anyone as I've been with myself, as I’ve been with myself.
Track Name: Turning Point
I need a rest from all of this history So I can let the past just disappear
Feeling all this hatred You won’t believe how hard it is So take me away from this fucking mess
Keep challenging all of my will, of my will to survive Keep taking away what I need, what I need in my life
Take it over
Challenging all of my will to survive Taking away what I need in my life.
I need to run away from all of this It’s making my life such an agony It’s turning it all in a tragedy.
I know the theory, I need the practice I know what’s needed, but I’ll just keep it to myself.
For what it’s worth I think I’m better off away.
The time has come to make a change To take it by the hands and fly away.
I know the theory, I need the practice I know what’s needed, just have to carry on.
I need to run away from all of this It’s making my life such an agony It’s turning it all in a tragedy.
Track Name: Prôditiô
I’ve faded away with everything else I use to mean to you , I am no longer a part of anything, anything I’ve always needed you right by my side, just to feel secure Finally you realized that I was using you
It’s such a fucking tragedy, when you look me in the eyes and say it’s over, and say it’s over
Now you despise everything that I was Now I regret everything that I’ve done And I regret
And I find it hard to be the same I was before, my guilt is eating me inside I find it hard to sleep at nights knowing you’re are not around I didn’t tell you, I let you down.
I’ve faded away with everything else I use to mean to you , I am no longer a part of anything, anything
I’ve always needed you right by my side, just to feel secure Finally you realized that I was using you, It’s such a fucking tragedy, Such a tragedy.
And I find it hard to be the same I was before, my guilt is eating me inside I find hard to sleep at nights knowing you’re are not around I didn’t tell you, I let you down.
