Track Name: Apocalypse Engine
I'll put myself through the test
All but one are meaningless
One day I'll claim my spot in the stars

Welcome to the new Stone Age
Where we spend our fading days
Worshipping palm-sized monolith gods

The Sun has cast its final rays
We wait for the end of our days
Tremble in fear till we die
Never knowing the reason why
If there's a God up in the sky
He has long since left us behind
While we fuel our own demise

Measuring our self-worth with
Numbers on a goddamn screen
Always doubting our own train of thought

Oblivious to our luck
Chose not to realize we're fucked
As we consume more than we wish for

The Sun has cast its final rays
We wait for the end of our days
Tremble in fear till we die
Never knowing the reason why
If there's a God up in the sky
He has long since left us behind
While we fuel our own demise

The golden pathway that we once could see
Slowly its facade is starting to lift
Track Name: Fate Angelic
When I saw you for the first time
I knew for the rest of my nights
You'd haunt my dreams, never to go
Like a restless soul in limbo

I'll wait for you to rescue me
All I need to do is believe
That you'll find the key to my heart
Before it tears itself apart

Chaos lingers within my shell
I need to get out of this hell
And you're all that stands in my way
Fallen before, but not today

If there's one thing I know for sure
It's that I can't resist your lure
If it should ever come to that
I'd trust my life into your hands

Fate won't let us wait
So why don't we break and give in?
You're forever mine
We will survive the tides of time
Track Name: Indifferent
So fast you faded
And left me nothing
But a shattered heart
And sorrow followed

Don't cry for me
I'll still remember you
Even if you cut my heart in two
Just hear my wish
Please do not hate me
If I start another life without your light

Shards of the love you felt for me
Like rusty nails, they prick my skin
And so I let them pierce my veins
Until your poison has been bled away

But let me tell you something, dear
I'm past being held down by fear
Because at least you made me learn
To stop before the point of no return

I swear I'm fine
I still have time

Don't cry for me
Your memory remains
Only with the pain now locked away
Just hear my wish
Please do not hate me
If I start another life without your light
Track Name: Deception Inside
Another morning arrives
Its light descends on me
But something does not feel right
It creeps under my skin

Try to make sense of my mind
Alas, to no avail
Dark clouds gather up inside
Another sunset fades

Came to my attention you
Belong to someone else
Is my heartbreak overdue?
If only I could tell

Bittersweet thoughts of envy
Your deception I fake
Your lips they don't arouse me
And yet I crave their taste

Once more I lay down to sleep
But who knows what tomorrow brings
Will I be too sad again
To open my eyes?

I've but one request
Don't make me face this alone
Promise you'll be there
I'm powerless on my own

Please save me
