Track Name: 49 Days
49 Days

You cannot escape from the things that are meant to be
You cannot erase what you did from my mind
I search for devotion behind what you said to me
The air in your words, that was all I would find
49
And I would trust the words of a stranger
before I trust the look in your eye
All the times you put me in danger
All the ways you fill me with lies

You will bend at the end the barrel
You will bleed at the tip of the knife
what you felt in your heart never mattered
7 days 7 weeks 7 times gives new purpose, new meaning to life

And I would trust the words of a stranger
before I trust a look in your eye
All the ways you put me in danger
All the times you fill me with lies
And I would trust the words of a stranger

You speak of loyalty
You call me family
The things you promised me
Your words ringing empty
You're fucking dead me now

In 49 days

By the pricking of needles
By the pricking of my thumbs
Reaching out to the wicked
See how quickly wicked runs
And a slash of the throat
makes it all go away
With this purification
Trading pain for more pain

I look at your names
Cross them out until one remains
You can do things the hard way
But I do things with care
You will fear what I bring
You'll remember I hold the ring
All the princes are crying because they can't be king

Unlock the door I'll be right there.....

in 49 days.
Track Name: Atlas
Atlas

They say to know the heart of a man first you must walk a mile in his shoes.
What I am learning from your footsteps...One day in my life would destroy you.
I remain firm where you falter.
I swim in the tears of your daughter.

I carry the weight of the world.
I carry your life on my shoulders.

I am ATLAS.

I step in any direction and there's your ghost right behind my.
Hands, turned to stone for protection.
Well the devil he came here to find me.

Anybody would break with this weight on their head.
I will carry this burden with me till I'm dead
and the names and the letters they come with a price.

This is my sacrifice:

Each day I rise, still in darkness, to feed machines that can kill you.
I count the heads of the dead men you don't have the strength or the will to

I watched your neck break with this weight on your head.
I will carry this burden with me till I'm dead
and the names and the letters they come with a price.

For those..... I sacrifice

The air you breathe
Belongs to me
Red eyes to keep me warm
In the calm before the storm

They say to know the heart of a man....
But I do all your walking for you
You have no heart.
Track Name: Bound
Bound

I bite my tongue until it bleeds
The pain you cause you plant the seeds

And by the setting of Sun
will come the turning of tide

Bound by the damage you've done
Bound by the knots that you've tied
Bound by your evil inside

Smiling they're thinking you've won
Watching you wallow with pride
Patiently biting my tongue
I know the faces you hide

Looking back I see the signs were always there when I was lost
From these things I will unbind my destiny ..whatever cost

Think you deserve a crown
I smash it to the ground

I gave my trust, my faith, how could I have been so blind?
I have to change my fate
I cast you all aside.
I found the way, the strength to leave this world behind
From this life
From this place
From these things I will unbind

Looking back I see the signs
The tragedy and all the loss
From these things I will unbind my destiny... whatever cost

from these things I will unbind
from these things I will unbind
from these things I will unbind
from this life I will unbind

.......but I'll bite my tongue until it bleeds
Track Name: Crown of Knives (Tsconcha Korlo)
Tsoncha Korlo

Striking the enemy
deeply in his heart
There is no love for you
Rip his world apart
The knives turn back on you
All the knives you throw
Striking deep in your heart
There's no love

So now you wear the crown of knives
Slashing your dreams back down to size
You spit your venom upon others
The knives
The wheels
turning again and again

And drop by little drop
Your coffin will be filled
And cut by little cut
Your dreams will be killed
The mirror tells no lies
And death never waits

So now you wear the crown of knives
Slashing your dreams back down to size
Bring your death to the heart of this butcher
In the mirror my greatest enemy

my greatest enemy..
I kill you

And every time you close your eyes my fucking face is all you'll see
And when you think your little thoughts
That voice inside your head is me You're such a selfish little bastard
Go live your life in jealousy

Striking the enemy
deeply in his heart
There is no love for you
Rip his world apart

How can you look into a mirror?
how do you look into the mirror?
Track Name: Endgame
Endgame

At last the time is now at hand!
How easily you thought you'd seen the last of me

With all this time came time to plan
How foolishly you thought you'd take it all away from me

With all this time in my command your strategy comes to an end

You never thought this day would come when I recapture everything that's rightfully mine.

Willing to sacrifice it all

Stepped back and took my time
With domination mind
My pieces are in line
You'll never see the light of day

I drag you behind me to the altar
And here you can look on the face of my true brilliancy
The red moon rising above me
Watching your kingdom as it falls to the ground

I drag you behind me to the altar
Knowing the look in my eye the last move you'll ever see
The red moon rising above me
I watch your bridges burn as I take my turn

Check

You never thought this day would come when I recapture everything that's rightfully mine

So then I sacrificed them all
So you'll remember that you were no match for me
I come back I take it all
I rise and Kings will fall
There will be no mercy in the end

Look in my eyes.
