Track Name: Bludgeon
Bow down and kiss the wounded skin,
Split knuckles bleeding...
A coward's bed in which to rest,
Be glad you're breathing...

My promises I'll now betray,
Does this give life meaning...?
Will I regret these mindless ways...
The answer leaves me seething...

We laugh in your face,
Not a fucking beatdown!!
Prepare for a Bludgeoning...

Pathetic excuse,
For a fucking beatdown!!
Prepare for a Bludgeoning...!!!

Relive the visions of the past,
With your thoughts reeling...
A jester's crown upon your head,
And you keep bleating...

The answer to my question, Yes...
Though I'm still repeating...
The rush is pure, in this no doubt!!
Aftermath of feeling...

We laugh in your face,
Not a fucking beatdown!!
Prepare for a Bludgeoning...

Pathetic excuse,
For a fucking beatdown!!
Prepare for a Bludgeoning...!!!

I...won't be denied...
My...pound of...flesh!

Crowned, yet crucified...(we laugh in your face...)
Failed...acid test...(not a fucking beatdown...)
Crowned, and crucified...Crowned, yet justified...(Pathetic excuse...)
Failed, acid test, welcomed at your behest...
Welcome to your Bludgeoning!!

Never consider surrender.
You leave me no choice.
On the cusp of Oblivion
BLUDGEON!!

Never consider surrender.
You leave me no choice.
On the cusp of Oblivion
BLUDGEON!!
Track Name: All Sense Of Reason
When pressure breaks through…all sense of reason, lost!!
And tension snaps taut…the inner core, seething…
To be unanswered…definition, shattered…
The fragile truth that…we’re all stretched too thin…

Allow me…to explain something to you…
This can’t be…more than just passing fancy…
I see the truth that lies within every man’s deceit…
The thought to rationalise, now leaves you incomplete…

Sense the feelings…building in you…
Invasive questions…feed confusion…

You may find…an easy path to relief…
Walk on blind….with pretence that all is normal…
I see the truth that lies within every man’s deceit…
The thought to rationalise, now leaves you incomplete…

Now raise your walls up…seek protection…
Pertinent questions…erase foundations…

When pressure breaks through…all sense of reason, lost!!
And tension snaps taut…the inner core, seething…
To be unanswered…definition, shattered…
The fragile truth that…we’re all stretched too…
Thin…

Life will be sacrificed…
And there’ll be more to pass…
To walk this path…
Even the worthy will succumb…
The paradox in this…
That love we must destroy…
In this we stand as one,
And yes, we’re coming home!!

The Skies awaken!!

When pressure breaks through…all sense of reason, lost!!
And tension snaps taut…the inner core, seething…
To be unanswered…definition, shattered…
The fragile truth that…we’re all stretched too…
Thin…

When pressure breaks through…all sense of reason, lost!!
And tension snaps taut…the inner core, seething…
To be unanswered…
The fragile truth that…we’re all stretched too…

Don’t even try…We see the truth that lies within…
Walk on by…Our sense of reason is…
Complete.
Track Name: Burden Of Truth
To be considered, you must at least take part...
If it's up to fate, you'll be left down below...
When visions beacon, crossroads you will dictate...
The burden of truth, your World is stretched too thin...?
No...

A dark haze...Devoid of responsibility!
A numbing pain...Self-destruction born of lethargy!
I hate that they see this...
Disappointment mirrored in their eyes.
To give in to weakness...
Self-doubts behind a mask of... (pride)

To be considered, you must at least take part...
If it's up to fate, you'll be left down below...
When visions beacon, crossroads you still dictate...
The burden of truth, that you don't give a shit...
Yes...

A red mist...Devoid of responsibility!
A raging pain...Self-destruction born of apathy!
I hate that you do this...
Disappointment mirrored in my eyes.
To give in to weakness...
Self-doubts behind your mask of...pride...

Cower!!
I...Will...be...seen...
To walk upon...
The path to failure...
Too self-absorbed...
In my righteous behaviour...
Now...You...May...Know...

To be considered, you must at least take part...
If it's up to fate, you'll be left down below...
When visions beacon, crossroads we now dictate...
The burden of truth, is that we do give a shit...
Yes...

I will defend this,
I'll stand my fucking ground,
The right to question,
Justification easily found,
You gave us reasons,
A few more than just one,
And rejected chances,
You won't let go...

We will defend this,
We'll stand our hard-fought ground,
The right to question,
Justification easily found,
You gave us reasons,
A few more than just one,
And rejected chances,
We will let go...

You...Won't...ac-cept...
That we've walked upon...
That path to failure...
Too self-absorbed...
In our own behaviour...

To be considered, you must at least take part...
If it's up to fate, you'll be left down below...
When visions beacon, crossroads we now dictate...
The burden of truth, is that we all give a shit...
Yes...
Track Name: Faceless Devastation
Lessons are taught, yet not learnt...by all that surrounds us,
Strange how we never listen, travel blindly through Life...

In our citadels, bastions of power...
Surely we will prevail, as ever before...

Well now wake up the giant, as it slumbers beneath,
The World proud and defiant, surely we cannot fall...

The cities of man, will be as nothing...
When our final demands, are met with silence...

In the end...we'll see...too late...
All that's left is nothing, but the strife for survival
Our last...re...ward...

With faceless devastation, can Life be classed as foe?
Or divine intervention, for what crime who's to know?

Despite all beliefs, and creed or colour,
With no distinction made, all must now cower...

In the end...we'll see...too late...
All that's left is nothing, but the strife for survival
Our last...re...ward...

Now is the time, we shall survive...
Conquering fears, do it or die
Now is the time, we shall survive...
Conquering fears, do it or die
Now is the time, we shall survive...
Conquering fears, do it or die
Now is the time, we shall survive...
Conquering fears, do it and die

Now the ending, has come for you...
Cease your questions, wasted breath...
Words unanswered, voiceless terror...
No emotion, this just is.

Earth...Flames...liquid forms...
Fear...Pain...sets the norm...
Calm...Waves...before the storm...
False...Hopes...Gojira is born...

No enemy, can be fought, when it is no-one
With pain of birth, a face beheld, yet it is futile
You seek to thwart that which, is beyond comprehension...
With destruction comes new life ...The cycle is completed...
Faceless Devastation!!
