Track Name: Test Subject
escape their delusion
find what is real
the facade is gone
i just want to feel
nothing existed for me
up until that time
my whole world changed
i committed the crime

i'm holding on so tight
slowly slipping away
and i have no control now
i am a test subject

live for the moment
fear for the end
the facade is gone
we've killed that trend
it's now all revealed
in front of our eyes
the moment that i looked
i saw through the lies

you're a test subject
you're a test subject
you're a test subject
you're a test subject
Track Name: Oversight
i know you're watching each of my moves
i know you're following each of my steps

i know you're reading all of my thoughts
i know you're listening to each of my breaths

and i'm running away from you
because what i've seen is too much to handle
fearing what you'll do
if you ever catch up to me
trying to go away
where no one knows that i exist
no more time for delay delay delay delay delay delay

it's my fate
written in stone
clenched to the pain
poisoning my bone
it's my fate
written in stone
held on by nothing
no way to home
it's my fate
written in stone
turn on the fury
inside alone
Track Name: Last Hope
i walk in the darkness
try to find a way
explosions in the distance
behind buildings of yesterday
now a plague lingers around
converting all the lost souls
then condemning their lives
i'm here to stop this all
and wake them up

this is my last hope
in a world of disaster
to medicate everyone there is
is a goal i am after

it tries to stop me
knowing my intentions
my soul grows weaker
in every passing day
this constant defeat
that i am living with
will decree me inside
please let it all
go away

i hope this all will pass us by
i hope this all will pass us by
Track Name: Into My Life
you just want
what you think you can use
nothing matters more
than what you do for me
trying to let me, fall
to your trap
and i sure hope, you've got
something out of this

buying your way into my life
give me everything you think i want
biting your way into my life
i see you as a parasite

you just need
everything to be your way
this jealousy, is eating
both of us alive
stop and think, because you are being
hypocritical
and i sure hope
you've got something out of this

i see you judge me sole on a
biased point of view
and nothing seems to satisfy this
lust in side of you
and when i feel you beating me
until i'm black and blue
we will see that this is all that
you know how to do
Track Name: From Eden
i was created to be
a thorn in your side
unrelenting pain
ideals personified
you gave me the freedom
you gave me the pleasure
you gave me the hatred
you exiled me

remember when i never knew?
i was so young and joyful
that was taken away from me
and i barely saw it come

my instincts told me to have faith in you
my instincts told me to have faith in you

i saw you pick the apple
right from the tree
when the snake instructed you
to give it to me
for a moment i looked at it
i trust what you said
then i took a bite, watching my
world go away

i was created to be
a flaw in your eyes
trying to live up to
your impossible lies
you gave me the option
you gave me the privilege
you gave me the warning
you exiled me

life in paradise
wasn't enough for us
life in paradise
wasn't enough for us
Track Name: Watch Me Falling
laying on my optimistic
cushion of security
this comes by, disturbing all
of what i made from sanity
this is how we watch me falling down
i am so down and lonely
crawling from the pit that this has created
my reality

now no more
what we know
darkness is
what i've lived through
now i am
just a tool
useful for
everyone to use

waiting by their fixed emotions
hoping they will go away
still they're here, making sure
to tell me what to think and say
this is why all that i see is black
i am so down and lonely
feeling an object of their affection
my reality
Track Name: Killswitch.1
they surround me again
persecuting who i am
telling me i am wrong
killing what i began
feeding on what they gave
teaching me to behave
saying what's wrong with me
a scapegoat for them all
can't take this anymore
can't take this anymore
Track Name: Killswitch.2
can't take this anymore
can't take this anymore

everything that we've come to see
is everything i never wanted to be
your eyes are red with the blood
that's been taken from me
and it's lost forever

my innocence
my confidence
my paradise
my life is gone

can't take this anymore
can't take this anymore

and i snap
Track Name: Killswitch.3
and they will say what they know
about what you should do
and they will rape your eyes
filling your head with fear
Track Name: Transition
the scriptures they write
the prophets of might
and the holy light
i feel inside
Track Name: Gift
long before i knew myself
knew my strength and knew my wealth
i thought it all was just a dream
and far away it would seem
then i realized what i'll be
and i will try so heavily
when i make myself finally whole
is when it's time for me to go

the scriptures they write
the prophets of might
and the holy light
i feel inside

long before i knew the truth
in what i am supposed to do
i wished upon a brighter day
and did my best to play the game
then i realized who i am
and i will be a better man
when i make myself bold
is when all stone will turn to gold
Track Name: World of Disaster
this is my last hope
in a world of disaster
this is my last hope
to medicate everyone there is
Track Name: Lift Me Up
i'm holding the holy water
up to your lips
indulging you with all the pleasure
that i can come up with

you are here for justification
to justify my alienation
i just want to be left alone
locked away in my own home
what more must i say to you
for you to see this through?

the holy water drips onto my
you now have gotten closer
entering a world i locked away
with no one else i'd share

lift me up
throw me down
lift me up and throw me down
lift me up
throw me down
lift me up and throw me down

if only you could feel my pain
as you saw me looking away
you made your decision that day
if only you felt what it's done
seeing you walking away
you put me down to nothing
that day

i am isolating myself
i am isolating myself

lift me up
throw me down
lift me up and throw me down
lift me up
throw me down
lift me up and throw me down
