Track Name: Salvation and Sin
~VERSE~
I have no reason to hate,
I have no reason to love,
Free from the rain of my life,
All that is left is the voice in my soul

Telling me how,
Setting me free,
Singing its love,
Filling the rupture

Feeling it burn!
Never ending
Twisting and turning
It's always stinging

~CHORUS~
Like an arrow in the night;
The ending's in sight!
And now I'm free from the pain,
And I'm starting to feel,
That there's hope left for us!
Is salvation really a sin?
While we live, we will cry... breathing on a whim
Terminate, fornicate, thought you loved death?
I will dream to redeem
You can't save yourself;
Not now!

~VERSE 2~
Losing my last grasp of this...
Sinking into the abyss...
It's fading, it's caving, reaper is calling,
He will see the shattered joke we called a home...
Home...

~OUTRO~
Whoa, whoa, whoa!
Whoa, whoa, whoa!!
Track Name: Damnati Part 1
~CHORUS~
I am the mysterious bane of life
I am the hunter and you cannot hide
Descending upon you like plague leaking death
Revenge will be mine, cries will be your last breath!

~VERSE~
You made this war, you've been here before;
I am waiting...
Demissing mistakes, committed by fakes;
Hopeless for you...
I'll watch you burn
Through every turn
Prophecise
How you die!

~CHORUS~
Blood on my hands my foes fall left and right
Last one expected to get up and fight
Mercy is a foreign thought to my mind
Count your blessings traitor your life will be mine!
Oh!

~BRIDGE~
Freedom from fire!
Pawn of the liar!
Run, you can't cry!
Kill the messiah...
Mother and father
Blood from another
Your death for hire;
Assassin's power!
Track Name: Gates of Heaven
~INTRO~
Without faith, I live as I please
I am free from His higher pleas
I live life as full as I can
I will live and die my own man

Approaching mid life, no trouble and no strife
Just one thought on my mind; how shall I take God's knife?
With mercy? In tremor? An endless endeavour
Try to grasp my terror and how will...
Now?

~VERSE~
See myself as if from afar
It's not absolute, the gates are still ajar
I can't decide if I want this faith
But I need to trust, it can't be too late
I have my doubts, I'm blackened by awe
Will He take me in, will He let me fall?
Redeem me Father, I know I've sinned
Will you take me father, will you take me in?

~CHORUS~
Lord, at the Gates of Heaven
Lay your judgement on me
Lord, at the Gates of Heaven
Will your judgement let me be?

~CHORUS~
Lord, at the Gates of Heaven
Lay your judgement on me
Lord, at the Gates of Heaven
Will your judgement let me be?
Lord, did you forgive my brethren?
When they perished and all died?
Lord, open the Gates of Heaven
Will you though I have lied?
Track Name: Damnati Part 2
~VERSE~
We are heroes, victorious
Stand over foes, stand glorious
Unkempt madness, raging sadness
You were mine, you're out of time
Silent, she shies
No one heard cries
See for your eyes
Everyone dies
Secrets denied in your life...

~CHORUS~
I had come for you!
Defending you from yourself!
Malicious, I'm a fool!
Hypocrite; I loathe myself...

~BRIDGE~
Painful; you were once me
Armageddon; God served us well
Scream for fire, heat and death
End it now, I'm in disgrace
Cast aside my brothers
Cast aside my lovers
Cast aside remorse
And I scream; where are you now!?

~OUTRO~
I see now as I fade
Knowing I have merely days
Where is my brother?!
And I scream; where are you now!
Rhetorics plungs through me
Gripping, laughing at me
Where is my mother?
And I scream; where are you now!?

~CHORUS~
I had come for you!
Defending you from yourself!
Malicious, I'm a fool
Hypocrite; I loathe myself...
Track Name: Legends of Ignorance
~VERSE~
Rise up and take control
Of this broken world,
Of this broken system;
We are the victims of
Our own misplays, our only array
Of light and dark,
Of good and bad;
We are the victims of

Life!
Will we die here?
In the world we've frozen with fear
Are we Gods to say? We carry on
In this world alone we can't
Die!

Rise up and take control
Of this world or the death toll?
Break in half your heart of steel
Use it as a blade, let them feel
The rage, the madness deep within
Humans are weapons, your Gods can't win
Omniscient fools cannot rule!

~CHORUS~
Draw the line
Don't question why
Who are you
To question God?
Power brings
Insanity
Lunacy
And reckoning!
We've trusted it, trusted too much
A murderer's own tender touch
We've given it, given too much
The Legends of Ignorance!

~CHORUS~
Wait by me
Trust me please
You have the power to question God!
Power brings
Demented things
Sickening
With murderous fangs!
We've trusted it, trusted too much
A genocide's own tender touch
We've given it, given too much
Us Legends of Ignorance!

The Legends of Ignorance...
Track Name: Damnati Part 3
~VERSE~
Will you take me?
Reach out to save me?
Or will you watch me?
You know I'm not guilty
Death clouds my eye
Killing from your lie
Forgotten we all die
Saviours question why

~CHORUS~
Feel my rage out of control
Used, abused, blindly kill all
Here me now as I scream;
Damnati! Damnation!
Yet you say this is a war?
Where are you? Do you want more?
Hear me now as I scream;
Damnati! Damnation!

~VERSE
Suddenly
Realise I can't win
My hands tainted with sin
Hell is now my twin
We are your faithful servants
Send us to hell and back again

~CHORUS~
Feel like someone's watching you?
Feel like it's someone you knew?
Pull the trigger, die at last;
But is that not the past?
Modern day does not have this
Where was justice? Was a myth
Guilty of nothing but
A way that life used to flow

Did you listen, did you know?
How we vanquished our lost foes?
Do you remember the
Lives given to let you breathe
Cry in vain, your race was spoiled
Lesson learnt, we won't be foiled
Surely in life today...

But no!
Damnati's not underground!
Damnati is still around!
Hear me now as I scream;
Damnati! Damnation!
As I fall upon the floor,
Damnati lives evermore,
Hear me now as I scream out!
Damnati! Damnation!
Track Name: The Unbeliever
~INTRO~
Protect us oh mighty one
You've divided your earthly sons
Your words burnt black by fear
I know our time draws near
We raised with our minds
To conquer, twist and hypnotise
Built up from words of peace and light
I'll strike you down by God's might!

~THE SCREAM~
YEAH!!

~VERSE~
Spreading bigotry, pray for brutality;
Kill for your God!
Justifying war, praying for your heart's love
Paint red the sands!

Victories glorified, evil rise to find
Hatred's incarnate!
Masses unified, kept in a single mind
Shepard or wolf!

~PRE-CHORUS~
Hatred in the name of love
War in the name of peace
Oppression in the name of freedom
Segregate our equal lives

~CHORUS~
In this world, we don't compromise
I'm alone seeing through your disguise
Use our guide, use him for you
Unbeliever's watching what you do

~VERSE~
Calling judgement down, crush all the war we found
Man's mind as stone
Now we are afraid, whoever rests eternally
Back and then alone

~PRE-CHORUS~
Whoa-oa, whoa-oa, whoa-oa, whoa-oa
Killing in the name of life!

~CHORUS~
In this world, we don't compromise
I'm alone seeing through your disguise
Use our guide, use him for you
Unbeliever's watching what you do

~CHORUS~
In this world, we don't compromise
I'm alone seeing through your disguise
Use our guide, use him for you
Unbeliever's watching what you do
