lyrics

In the shallow part of my mind
I wonder if I am even alive
or just a replicant of a past life
A ghost lost, lost in time
Sickened by the man I despise
How do I even hold onto what once was?
I stare into the light and the whole world lost its sound

Open the mouth of heaven a rapture of temptation

As if its a dream with every lie I witness life crumbling
Just as I come into who I am
The devil of temptation rides again
Just before my fall the falure
Blinded by deceit
Cut on the alter
Desperate and broken
I am fighting to hold on
To not loose track of who I am

Open the mouth of heaven a rapture of temptation
That eats away...
The moral soul...
Eats away...
What keeps us whole

How can it be that I sacrifice who I am
Just to be the idols deception
Burn out destroy a reputation
How can anybody get behind something so transparent and blind
I see through the curtain behind your stage
Who you are...
What you became....

Open the mouth of heaven a rapture of temptation
That eats away...
The moral soul...
Eats away...
What keeps us whole

The fingertips of guilt squeezing the pit in your heart

Break free from your jaded past
Try to live to fight another day
They will not last
Time will expose them of their shame

Never give in
Never sell yourself out!!!

Genre boundaries and inner-scene platforms are eradicated as this quintet dispatches song after song of energized, enraged fury, while lyrically the outfit speaks from an equally grounded, forward-thinking mentality. ... more
