Track Name: The Flood
As I sit and wait for the flood
My soul breaks down and weeps
Wound upon wound bleed me out
As I lay in the ashes of sanctuary

Summoning the last vestiges of life
In the husk of my frame
Cut out the bleeding within
What is life but the road to death?

Sitting, waiting for the flood
Invisible to the outside world
bleeding on the broken earth
Cut apart by silent knives

Drowning in the sorrows
Conjured from imagination
Dying on the cross of my eternal sin
This is the sound of perpetual hatred
Suicide to crush the mind and end my damnation

Cry out to the silence
Scream unto your existence
This is the ending of it all
This is the beginning
Of my eternal night
Track Name: Death, The Elixir Of Life
Lying on the cold floor
In the abyss of nothing
The living clipped my wings
Whilst the dead looked on and laughed

Silent is the landscape
Devoid of the human plague
Cold is my current life
Cold like the grave

My death is in your eyes
Looking out at me
Cold, unforgiving, forever
Like a virus in my heart
Draining all of my life
I am the husk the angels leave behind

Now is the end
Cut out the cancer from the world
Drink the poison from the cup
It's an elixir, we all must drain
Death embraces with cold arms
Suicide leads the way, noose in hand

Everyone needs to kill themselves
Life is no excuse
Take this blade I offer you
Free yourself from the misery
The misery, the cruel God has thrust on you
Do it, and watch the shackles, break down around you

Piece by piece, they broke you
No-one to pick up your shards
Like tears your blood cascades
Pooling at your feet
What more is there to live for?
When everything that you see breaks

Take me by the hand
And the open wrist
Death is written in red
A score that your misery writes
Now that you can see it, clear in the night
Were all better off dead
Track Name: Requiem Of Blood
My requiem is written in blood
Dripping from the edges of my mind
Despair is leading me by the hand
To the place, where the dead
Still dream of what they were

Death gazes from your eyes
Inevitable and painful
A dreadful purge of all mankind
This is the ending of another life

The bloody requiem sounds eternal
Splitting the night time cries
Join me in ending your life
Your aspiration is to die

As this ending sounds in the dark
Through scarlet tinged eyes, they mourn
A being no longer able to perceive
After we are dust and ashes
How are we received?

My bloody requiem tells my life
All that I have tried and failed
The things that I have hated and loathed
Told through a score of cuts and wounds
Forever to sound my darkened time
Track Name: Swansong For The Sad
A scar that steals all the light
Words carved into flesh
Sadness that swallows all life
Too few drugs to take all the pain

Beaten and broken from birth
A life cursed from the start
To lie under the shadow of despair
Never to see the light of day

The blade glides through the flesh
A razor guided by misery
Words of hate carved deep
Sorrow bleeds from the wound
Dripping onto the floor

Why is it all filled with sorrow?
This life that you are left with
Isolated from the cheerful
Never to feel in kind

But look into the tunnel
The darkness all around you
There is a light at the end of it
If only you could reach

Raise your crisscrossed arms
To grasp for the hope you seek
Life may yet reward you
For the misery you have received

Rise towards the light
Open your wings to the sun
Rise towards a new life
Leave me here in the dark
Leave for the life you deserve
