about

This album has been in and out and in and out, and its roots are mired in loss, death, pain, and depravity; The basic human things.

released 15 December 2014

First of all, we'd like to thank Yluko for his detrimental aid, and who is working on a remaster album, where the mastering artist.. is actually an artist. Low pH, for his masterful work on the album cover, and would like to send our condolences to those we've lost along the way, as well as a very special "Christ on a FUCKING PIZZA! Why are you STILL alive, you COW!" to one very special girl. :)

Track Name: The Beaten
Beaten, and scarred,
It’s been such a long time.
I’ve come so far,
Since we last met eyes.
I’ve seen so much;
I’ve learned to forgive.
I am not the child in you?

You’re Broken of heart;
Have you lost your only friends?
No light in thine eyes;
Is there any hope when you’re near the end?
I don’t know what I would have said,
I cannot say how I would have felt,
Though I’d have liked the last chance.

I could have learned to forgive,
I could have learned to accept.
I could have learned to make peace.

You’re Broken, and scarred,
What hell you must have known.
Such distance you enforced,
Was it not hard to die alone?
You could have helped me understand,
You could have given me that chance;
Instead of bad memories.

I’ve since learned to forgive,
I’ve learned to accept,
I’ve since learned to make peace.
X2

I do not know what happened then. I cannot say how I should have felt; I never took the last chance.
Track Name: Little Noises
I can hear it approach me
as the sound draws near.
As I open my eyes
I see nothing too clear.
Withdraw from inside me
Get back before it hurts me;
A little gasp escapes.

Praying for the sunlight;
Drop down to the floor.
A little crying child;
breathes no more.
withdrawing from inside me.
I can't tame the mind.
a little noise escapes.

Can Jesus even save me,
from my ever closing cell?
Laughter from the darkness,
tormenting that of hell.
Withdraw from the darkness,
my soul begins to twitch;
a little scream escapes.

Somethings getting close now,
a creak upon the wall:
Door slams shut,
a candle stick falls
reaching to inside me;
take a swing at the dark
I finally escape

It knows where to find me,
it hunts the smell of fright.
Finally its seen;
the speckled red on white.
Withdraw into myself;
I can stand mo more,
the little noise is seen.

Constantly it finds me.
There's nothing ever seen.
Tiny hands infected;
lashing at me.
Running through the hallway,
praying I don't fall.
Screaming, its behind me;
a shadow so tall.
Withdraw into my insides,
my courage fails me;
I can't even scream.


Shadows all around me,
shroud themselves in hate.
Bathing me in silence;
its finally too late.
Embracing me in sickness,
My eyes begin to twitch;
I can see it was a dream.
Track Name: Charlotte, Charlotte!
Charlotte, Charlotte.

Charlotte faces her life,
She was brought up on her own.
The turbulence of waste,
And she feels she’s alone.

The night time comes, she’s screaming in rage,
Another twist in words, she see’s the blood on the page

Night after night,
She stays in bed.
Another day goes on,
And no one hears what she says.

Another disappointment,
A gift from the fraud,
But Charlotte just can’t help it,
She looks at him as a god.

The tattered room of a child
Its everything she has,
She tries to look him in the eyes,
But he goes by so fast.

Another child.
Will spill her blood on these walls.
The only thing she’d ever asked
Was for him to hear her call.

A caustic tear drops down to the floor,
Why must she cry in vein?
She tries to hide the hurt,
She knows emotions are inane,
Daddy thought she was a child.

He thought Charlotte was so happy,
But how was he to tell?
Chorus
Charlotte, Charlotte, come out and play.
Charlotte, Charlotte, I want to hear what you have to say.
Scream it in my ears, scream it in my eyes, scream it in my face, drown out all the lies,
Charlotte, Charlotte, don’t go away.

Charlotte charlotte tell me again!
Charlotte charlotte, give me your pain
Scream it in my ears, murder your disdain
Rip it from my head tell me its all the same,
Track Name: The Monster
Monster

Everything has to end!
Eternally we expire.
The beauty in a winters rose
Decays, falling to the floor

Finally it comes; my time
Lie upon a bed; retire
Living the life I chose,
My body dying all around,

Life going on without change
Clinging to the strings, have I been left behind
The last thing I should have done,
Can I pick up where I left off?

Eyes cannot relay this sight
Some form; some sort of chrysalis
The point of no return
I should have taken revenge

V2
WHAT IS THIS!? I rise
Pulling myself from the grave
Am I returning from hell?
Consumed by hate, I’ve chosen a new path

In the name of greed,
We’ve suffered hard
We’ve paid the ultimate price
Verily, they decide, the coin can outweigh life

Vengeance will have her day
Her hunger will never sate
As I became the monster
This shivering facet of fate

Cherish meant something , in my last life.
That life is far behind.
I’ve become this thing,
This twisted fist of wrath




Chorus
My Regret cannot have say
In the new evolution of life
I cannot turn/look away, I cannot look back
It’s so hard to regain control
Vengeance will have her say
The angel of violence returned
I cannot look/turn away, I cannot understand
It’s so hard to save my soul.

My hatred will not give way
In the new evolution of life
I cannot run away, I cannot resist
It’s so hard to concentrate
My vengeance has taken command
The angel of violence manifest
I cannot close my eyes; It’s so hard to deny my fate
Track Name: The Wasted
Monster

Everything has to end!
Eternally we expire.
The beauty in a winters rose
Decays, falling to the floor

Finally it comes; my time
Lie upon a bed; retire
Living the life I chose,
My body dying all around,

Life going on without change
Clinging to the strings, have I been left behind
The last thing I should have done,
Can I pick up where I left off?

Eyes cannot relay this sight
Some form; some sort of chrysalis
The point of no return
I should have taken revenge

V2
WHAT IS THIS!? I rise
Pulling myself from the grave
Am I returning from hell?
Consumed by hate, I’ve chosen a new path

In the name of greed,
We’ve suffered hard
We’ve paid the ultimate price
Verily, they decide, the coin can outweigh life

Vengeance will have her day
Her hunger will never sate
As I became the monster
This shivering facet of fate

Cherish meant something , in my last life.
That life is far behind.
I’ve become this thing,
This twisted fist of wrath




Chorus
My Regret cannot have say
In the new evolution of life
I cannot turn/look away, I cannot look back
It’s so hard to regain control
Vengeance will have her say
The angel of violence returned
I cannot look/turn away, I cannot understand
It’s so hard to save my soul.

My hatred will not give way
In the new evolution of life
I cannot run away, I cannot resist
It’s so hard to concentrate
My vengeance has taken command
The angel of violence manifest
I cannot close my eyes; It’s so hard to deny my fate
Track Name: The Breaking
In vein. I remember
Staring into the dark
with childlike eyes.
In vein, I remember
Crying out to god
“Will you save me?”
Some things in the past
Were never meant to change,
No matter how we’d bleed.
These things in our past
Intrinsically define
Cutting innocence.

In vein
I remember
Calling out to the demons in the dark
“Leave me be!”
What shame
I cant recall
When the demons in the dark
Came to claim me,
In pain
I remember.
As I was pulled from the light,
By the grasp of reality.
With blame,
I point the finger,
Cast me out of your shelter
In the world you’ve built for me.

Mommy isn’t here to save me
To Guard me
from mistakes, they’ve made
My innocence is gone.
Cast out into the dark
To the demons that stayed












Falling to my knees
Such villainy in memory
My youth was a waste,
pathetically defined.

Crying out won’t please
These vicars of blasphemy
Showing us/me a world
That cannot be/not meant for me.

Sadness unmentioned,
In a world such as this
Breaking the souls
Of we who feel

To an anger unknown
Emotion cannot express
You promised us world
That was not real
Track Name: Theresa's Well
Theresa’s Well
V 1
I’ve called your name,
I’ve washed you down,
This empty shell gives nothing but a memory

I’ve held you close,
Cherished the pain,
This wishing well holds nothing more than hollow dreams

I’ve carried you there,
I’ve done what was right,
The gods have taken you despite my screams.
Can you take me there to the well? I don’t know when I’ll see you again.
V2
I don’t know where you’ve gone
I don’t know what I could have done,
This hardened heart fell apart with a policy

I’ve taken your screams,
You’ve given me light,
Unturned your pillow, you’re still not dead to me

I’ve seen your face,
In the scars of the sky,
I’ve known you but for a moment, what have you done to me?

I’ve offered my self,
You deny in modesty,
Theresa’s Well run dry, was this supposed to be? Can you take me there to the well I don’t know when I’ll see you again.
Can you take me there, while i dream?
Can you take me back the well, I don’t know if I’ll see you again, my friend.
I only want to keep you safe, as you sleep.


Chorus

Can you take me there to the well
I don’t know where I’ll see you again my friend.
Can you take me there while I dream?
I lay upon these healers,
A curse to suffer your fate.
I only want to keep you safe
As you sleep.
