Track Name: Immoral Seed
Forcefully planted inside me
A seed of evil grows within
My decency taken from me
None offer the help that I seek

Devoid of the happiness
I once ceaselessly expressed
Carrying a wretched seed
Born of an immoral deed

Fine, I'll get rid of it myself
I know the risks, but I don't care
While I still can, I'll destroy it
If I don't, I'll never be free

Devoid of the happiness
I once ceaselessly expressed
Carrying a wretched seed
Born of an immoral deed

I can't bear this child
Though I know that I
Will be stained by sin
But I don't mind it

Come back now, oh happiness
I once ceaselessly expressed
Freed now of the wretched seed
Born of an immoral deed
Track Name: Departure
Please rescue me
Save me from myself
Undo deceit
Drag me back from hell

The razor blade
Rests upon my wrist
Only time will
Tell when I let it...

Cut

I do not ask
For your forgiveness
What's in the past
Won't matter again

The time has come
To release the pain
My days are done
Come down, crimson rain

My own burdens
I never meant
For your shoulders
To carry, my friend

My own burdens
I never meant
For your shoulders
To carry, my friend
Track Name: That What I Deserve
All my works unrecognized
Brought me not a single dime
My wife wants me to just stop
But I'm too close to give up

I've a plot of a great maker
A plan to take what I deserve

For my family
My sanity
My destiny
I'll make you...

Pay!

They say I'm merely a grumpy old man
Sick with age, just barely able to stand
But I will show them all that I can do
By now, there's nothing left for me to lose

For my family
My sanity
My destiny
I'll make you...

Pay!
Track Name: (The Unfeasible Burden of) Losing Time
Staring at the dull gray walls
Shadows standing at the door
A window cloaked in dust and wood
A single beam of light shines through

Far too many years I've been
Sitting so perfectly still
All my friends with whom I played
With the wind, they left this place

Now I'm just killing time
Commit the perfect crime
With nothing left to lose
Save for this damned refuge

If I should die tomorrow
I'd pass in floods of sorrow
For I know better'n ever
Time won't forgive its wasters
