Track Name: Atonement
Years in torment, no atonement, locked inside my head
Born the wrong way, on the wrong day, never to be saved
False decisions, false derisions messed my DNA
The rage I held up, the hate I closed up all came out to play

Body lyin, dead and dyin', luck was never there
I watched all men, life on them, rich and joy and wealth
I tried to fit in, tried to believe truths I knew so well
(But) the dark in me, broke through me, swallowed my whole self

I’ll have to beat this back inside
Save you from the storm that’s in my mind
This green rage is ready to explode
So it’s better to just leave me alone
Track Name: Law of Blood
You stand accused in front (of) the eyes of the lord
We've brought you here to test the reach of the law
The gods will guide your hand to prove you're not wrong
If you are innocent the whole think will show

If you are pure and true we'll come to your cause
True men are still around you, don't look no more
We seven champions are the shield of the gods
The strength in our hands is the law of the blood

You will be judged
Tested by the law of blood
Gods and men watch
Fear no more the truth is the sword
Track Name: Insexication
My eyes are feelin' like curtains of lead
I need a poison to clear up my head
My senses burn through my body tonight
The streets are filling with noises and light
I got to set free that sickness within
Even the score and fix the state that I'm in

I gotta get me some more
I won't stop till I'm done
That shit's better than all you're living for

I'll hit the replay button tonight
Feels like I'm living a loop of a life
I whiff your smell and your moves get me high
Rational thoughts die in the blink of an eye
If I could just get up I'd walk up to you
I'd make this night a lot more than you knew

I gotta get me some more
I won't stop till I touch the sun
That shit's better than all you're living for

Keep my head up high
I don't need to belong yeah
Track Name: Cold Train
Sun breaks on this cold desert plain
The countdown starts, we brace and pray
The engines fire as the grounds shake
Ten thousand lives on this mountain of lead

I said hey… on we break
I sad hey… on we break

Ridin’ the void as we hold our breath
To the ancient stars, to the open space
Join with the dark to illuminate
To become more than man, the wandering race

I said hey… on we break
I sad hey… on we break

The arms of space are open to me
The heart of the universe beckons me
The songs of the stars are calling me
To the end of the world, the final dream

I said hey… on we break
I sad hey… on we break

We ride on this cold train, don’t let it give in
Ride on this cold train to edges unseen
Ride on this cold train, we’ll never give in
I said hey…
Track Name: Nuclear Honeymoon
I've been checking you out you've been checking me in
It's the sign of the times and the state that we're in
I drove out of a highway, found you into this mess
The whole world's gone to shit but we couldn't care less

Walking the streets, riding shotgun with ease
Looking so pretty, deadly as a disease
Rolling out in this wasteland, pouring like a monsoon
Outgunned and outnumbered, a nuclear honeymoon

So hey now
Come on down
Show what you got
or get lost in the crowd

Hey now
Believe or be dead
Get off your ass
and keep them out of your head

Bearing Witness against all this feast of the dead
all the civilization, bulks of concrete and lead
Choices made and shit happened no there is no return
Water under the bridge, might as well watch them burn
Track Name: Preacher
Years in the silence of space
Wanderin' voice of the age

Finally found my place
The Chosen to hold my grace

Singin' on the top of the world
My voice will be heard
Across the sky

I know my voice will be heard
On top of the world
My truth you can't deny
