Track Name: Gaia
With her last dying breath,
Mother earth,
Will take what we've destroyed,
What's rightfully hers.

Now the time has come,
For us to reap what we've sown,
What will we do,
With nowhere to call home?
As the grounds split,
We'll beg for our pathetic lives,
Salvation,
From a self-inflicted demise.

With her last dying breath,
Mother earth,
Will take what we've destroyed,
What's rightfully hers.

This is the end of everything that you've held dear.

Now everyone and everything that you've ever known is gone,
Now everyone and everything that you've ever loved is gone.
Track Name: The Unbound
Trust me I know more than you think,
Or maybe my eyes see too clearly to allow me,
To become another one of your sheep,
And to follow the herd so God damn blindly.

I will not conform,
To this misguided society,
Where the value of one's life,
Can be measured by the man-made concept of money.

I can't understand,
How you sleep at night,
With so,
With so much blood on your hands.

What will it take,
For them to see,
That this need to stop?
Enough is enough, now.

Broken bodies and broken spirits,
Just to add a dollar to your name,
Broken bodies and broken spirits,
You should all be fucking ashamed.

How much do you think that you can take before there's nothing left?
How much will it take, just to satiate your greedy ways?

And how much do you think that you can take before there's nothing left,
And how much will it take just to satiate your greedy God damn ways?
And how much do you think that you can take before there's nothing left,
And how much will it take just to satiate your greedy ways?

No matter how much you earn,
We all end up in the same place,
Money, greed, power, selfishness,
Out of sight out of mind.
Track Name: Modern Monuments
Monuments of waste,
Have been left behind,
By a failed generation,
Who chose to stay blind.

A generation,
Who lived by the words,
"Ignorance is bliss,"
It's no fucking wonder how it came to this,
It's no fucking wonder how it came to this at all...

Now the choices that we've made,
Have come back just to fucking haunt us.
Oh how much we've thrown away,
Without knowing just where away was.

BLEGH

Oh how,
We died in vain,
By our own hands,
No one to blame,
No one to blame but us now.
Oh how,
We died in vain,
By our own hands,
No one to blame,
No one to blame but us now.

No one to blame but us now.

No one to blame for...

For the choices that we made,
Have finally come back just to haunt us,
Now we are buried beneath,
All we thought we had thrown away.

We are nothing,
More than parasites,
Spreading and destroying,
Everything that we touch.

We are nothing,
More than parasites,
Spreading and destroying,
Everything that we touch,
And we won't stop,
Until every last one of us is dead.
We are nothing,
More than parasites,
Spreading and destroying,
Everything that we touch,
And we won't stop,
Until every last one of us is dead.

BLEGH
Track Name: Ill Emotions
I can't fucking sleep,
I can't fucking eat,
Because I'm so incredibly,
Disgusted by everything that surrounds me,
And I can't wait for this just to end.
I can't wait for it to end.

Getting through each second,
Feels like pulling teeth,
And every moment,
Feels like an eternity.

Every moment feels like an eternity.

I don't know how much more that I can take,
How much more will I bend before I break?
(How much more will I bend before I break?)

I can't fucking sleep,
I can't fucking eat,
Because I'm so incredibly,
Disgusted by everything that surrounds me,
And I can't wait for this just to end.

Disgusted,
By everything,
That surrounds me.

I am no one,
I am nothing,
My existence is meaningless,
So I'll drink away,
This overwhelming,
Sense of consciousness.

Consciousness...

I just want to feel comfortable in my own skin,
I just want to feel comfortable in my own God damn skin.

And if there is anything,
That I have learned,
It's that I will be damned,
If I let anyone or anything,
Make me feel this way again.
And if there is anything,
That I have learned,
It's that I will be damned,
If I let anyone or anything,
Make me feel this way again.
Track Name: I, The Narcissist
I hope my face haunts you,
Until the day you're dead,
And the mere thought of my voice,
Fills your heart with dread.I hope my face haunts you,
Until the day you're dead,
And the mere thought of my voice,
Fills your heart with dread.

I can't believe,
That I ever saw any "good" in you,
After all the torment you put me through,
I can't believe,
That I ever had any pity for you,
You narcissistic fuck.
I can't believe,
That I ever saw any "good" in you,
After all the torment you put me through,
I can't believe,
That I ever had any pity for you,
You narcissistic fuck.

Forget a river,
Cry me an ocean, bitch.

I can't count all the times,
That I'd lie awake at night,
Simply wondering,
If you were alright.

So listen closely,
To these words that I scream,
For they are the words that I...
That I have failed to speak.
There once was a time when...
When you meant something to me,
But just as time,
Feelings can pass so quickly.

Time changes more,
Than appearance,
But shallow hearts,
Seek nothing more.
Time changes more,
Than appearance,
But shallow hearts,
Seek nothing more.

You couldn't see past your narcissistic tendencies,
You couldn't see that you're a narcissist.

So listen closely,
To these words that I scream,
For they are the words that I...
That I have failed to speak.
There once was a time when...
When you meant something to me,
But just as time,
Feelings can pass so quickly.
