Track Name: Invasion
There's a fire in my heart and it glows so bright
There's a fire in my heart and it never ever stops
There's a fire in my heart

You bleed. You know. You lose control and you still want more
We take. We hold. We lock and load, it's what we came here for

Deeper you go, the closer you get
Blacker the soul, the sweeter the spit
Darker the sin, brighter the flames, sooner that we will forget
Martyrs they burn, martyrs they fade. Immolate... oubliette

We take. We call. We win it all, and we still want more
You bleed. You fall. We kill you all, that's what we came here for

Don't fight the fire my pet, it only burns away the flesh
Let go of your name, become one with the flame
Track Name: Lament (part i)
Break the circle into pieces
Live forever by degrees
Wait for the answer to the question
Aren't you sick and tired of all the lies?

Break the circle into sections
Live forever on your knees
Listen up and you'll hear the cries
As everything around me dies

FUGUE washes over, pulls me under
FUGUE drowning in the sound
FUGUE my only ally, my only weapon
FUGUE taking over

Scratch at the surface of what you believe
Look underneath, you won't like what you see
A circle of lies disguised as the truth
You can't even see it, they say nothing breaks it,
well let me show you

My anger reigns across the land
and the rank and file die where they stand
I've no one but myself to blame
And you'll Lament the day you learned my name

Death is the dance. Blood is the song. Pulse is the tempo that's pushing me on
Hate is the harmony. Murder the melody. Covering the land with the blackest of symphonies
Shatter the circle that keeps us apart. Lighting the fires that they couldn't start
Rivers of blood as they die in the dark, but it's never enough for my cold black heart

The circle is eternal. It protects and surrounds us. It provides definition, strength and purpose. The circle is eternal, and will never break
Legends tell of a great warrior named Saveau. Destroyer of armies. A man so powerful, that even death itself cannot touch him.
But even he cannot escape the circle.
And so it rages, the battle eternal. The warrior who can never die, against the circle that will never, ever break.
Track Name: Suffer
There's a line that we crossed and there's no going back

One little black heart One little white lie
One handful of matches and I'll set things right

Every single city Every single town
Cross em off a list as I burn them down

No going back to the way that we were because I
Hate you. Just a little bit more than I used to
Just a little bit more than I need
Just a little bit more than the day you made me

SUFFER
Suffer the pain of betrayal
Suffer the wolf at your door
Suffer the day that you left me behind with nothing inside
and I finally find that I

Hate you just a little bit more than I used to
Just a little bit more than I need
just a little bit more than the day you made me
Hate you just a little bit more than I used to
Just a little bit more than I need
Just a little bit more than the day you made me

Burn down the cities Leave a trail of ash behind
I won't stop till I find you I will make you
Hate me Just a little bit more than you used to
Just a little bit more than you need.
You're gonna hate me, cuz I. Will. Make. You.

Suffer the pain of betrayal
Suffer the wolf at your door
Suffer the hole that I'll burn in your heart and you'll finally feel the way I
SUFFER
Track Name: Horrorcloud
Darkness will cover the earth
The end of all days is at hand
Soon all the fires will burn all the liars
And not one among us will stand

Open the door Let in the darkness
Open the door Turn out the light
Open the door See what you started
Open the door And you don't want it?

But this is what you've waited for End of the world!
This is what you've waited for Armageddon!

Open the door Cities are falling
Open the door Angels will cry
Open the door Mankind is screaming
Open the door For a second chance

This is what you waited for End of the world
This is what you waited for Armageddon

Did you really think we'd last forever?
when we couldn’t get along together?

Open the door Push the button baby
Open the door Throw the switch
Open the door Pull the trigger honey
You know you want to

This is what you've waited for End of the world
This is what you waited for Armageddon

Did you really think we'd last forever?
When we couldn't get along together?

This is what you waited for now this is what you get!

Open the door Let in the darkness
Open the door Turn out the light
Open the door See what you've started?
Open the door Now you don't want it?

This is what you waited for
End of the world
This is what you waited for
Armageddon
Track Name: Push Me
I've heard about your brand-new addiction
The fantasy/fiction you put under your skin
I know the things that you do in your bedroom
I can make a suggestion if you'd just let me in

I've heard about your brand-new collection
Of liquid injections you load up in your veins
I'm here to help get rid of your problems
It's easy to solve them all you have to do is push

Push me instead of the drugs I'm the one that takes the edge off
and makes you feel better when you
Push me I'm your new drug of choice I'm your brand-new addiction
feels so much better when you push
It feels so much better when you push

When you misplace your heroin smile and the methadone style is wearing you thin
When the glow the rush are gone from your head you can abuse me instead
Just call me when you need a push


Push me instead of the drugs
I'm the one that takes the edge off
makes you feel better when you
Push me I'm the new drug of choice
I'm the brand-new addiction and it feels so much better when you push

Use me I'm your new black ice baby
Abuse me I'm shining through the cracks baby
Under your skin like a needle leaving tracks baby

No overdose and no option for quitting
No withdrawl and I'm highly addicting
But when you're feeling hollow I'm the pill you can swallow
To drown all your sorrows and you'll be back tomorrow to

Push me instead of the drugs I'm the one that takes the edge off
and makes you feel better when you
Push me instead of the drugs I'm the new crystal meth
you're gonna love me to death when you push
Track Name: Prophet
No surprise but the lies didn't do us any good
They shot us all down just like you said they would
We practiced up our lines till they were hot as the sunrise
But nothing prepared us for the icicles in their eyes

No, we never danced with the Angels
No, they never gave us a chance
No, they said go back to Diablo

Angels come out and lay down your defenses
We come here for piece with the best of intentions
Are your hearts of stone and black as crow?
Their smile said yes but their lips said no

We love the harp and the way that you sing
Your golden lip gloss and feathery wings
Was it something we said? Or the way that we look?
She wrote us all down in her little black book
We should've known better We should have known

No, we never danced with the angels
No, they never gave us the chance
No, they sent us back to Diablo

We love the way your halo glows with your eyes
Now open the gates and spread your wings wide
Me, Colin and Josh we all love you so much
But no matter what we said they wouldn't let us touch them No
It's not just a crush We love you so much
No matter what we said, they wouldn't let us touch them No

No, we never slept with the Angels
No, they never gave us the chance
No, they said go back to Diablo
Track Name: Reset
Time has come
Time has come to reset the system
Time has come to ignore the signs
Time has come to take hands off the wheel
And step outside the lines

Time has come to take the power back
Time has come to shut the system down

Time has come to repay the people
Who wanna see you on your knees
They held you back Make em pay
Enough of the giveth Time for the taketh away

Time is up The war is over if you play by their rules
A bigger stick might help 'em see
It's wake-up time in the land of the formerly free


Time has come to reset the system
Time has come to release control
Time has come to take hands off the wheel
Time has come to step outside the lines
Time has come Hands off the wheel
Time has come Outside the lines

Time has come
Track Name: Blood on the Velvet
What she got the boys all want
What she got the boys all need
Steel straps and long black hair
Hot leather whips and a cold steel chair
And the more it hurts the more it shows you care

Tied Down The way that she wants it
Tied Down The way that she needs
Tied Down The way to forgiveness
Blood on the Velvet

Tied Down Don't ask her for mercy
Tied Down She watches you bleed
Tied Down The brand new religion
Blood on the Velvet

The girls at the office never would guess
What she does in the evenings to work off the stress
Cuz it takes a special kind of girl
To make them line up at the door
Tie 'em down to the basement floor
To make 'em bleed and beg
And the more it hurts the more it shows you care


They say they don’t like it but they keep coming back
They don’t want it but they keep coming back
They must like it, cuz they keep coming back
They must need it, cuz they keep coming

Sex is a drug, and Kitty likes her injections
And the interesting way that she shows her affections
It’s the risk that she takes, and she don't use protection
Now line up the boys in need of correction
The more it hurts, the more it shows you care

Now Kitty don't like to go outside
She likes the dark where she can hide
Kitty don’t care how much it hurts
She don't have any safety words
Now confess your sins to that cold emerald stare

The more it hurts, the more it shows you care
Track Name: Fire and Dice
Leave the world behind as you step off the ledge
Its all Fire and Dice as you free fly fall
Spread your arms wide as you wait for the end
Problem solved when you hit the pavement

Its a long way down and a short sharp stop
Its a long way down to the bottom

Gravity pulls your name into the book of the dead
Would you gamble your soul away to take it back
A deal with the devil sounds like just the thing
When the ace of doubts trumps the suicide king

(Lies) Lady Luck she swallows you whole, she favors the bold and the brave
Lady Luck she leaves you alone to fall to your grave and you're fucked

But what's the difference It's just a wasted life Worthless anyway
What's the difference Another busted hand you'll never get to play
Time slows down You wanna make it stop
Cuz it's a long long way to the pavement

Where's all your bravery now You left that all behind
Now there's plenty of time for you to make up your mind
Imagine what if you're wrong Imagine what if you find
That the light at the end is just the end of the line

One last card? One last ace? Fire and Dice to change your fate

(Lies) Lady Luck, she plays for your soul, you'll find out that her heart is a spade
Lady Luck, shes stacked like the deck, its the cards that she loves, and its you that's been played

Lies, lies, lies. Its a long way down
What's the difference Just a wasted life Worthless anyway
And a short sharp stop
What's the difference Another busted hand you'll never get to play
One by one
What's the difference Another broken soul Worthless anyway
It's a long way down
What's the difference Just a wasted life Worthless anyway

Sucker
