Track Name: Awakened
My eyes forced open
For what I wasn't prepared to see
Misery
I feel like a ghost
To a world where I used to belong
Now I'm nothing

Awakened
To a life of pain
Nothing as it was
What have I become

There is no going back
With broken hope feeding shattered dreams
Fate is sealed
There is no way to fix
This empty shell of a broken man
Waiting for death

Awakened
In a world of doubt
Nothing left for me
A fate worse than Death

Born with no future I was cursed
Left here to die on my own
Seems as if I was built for sadness
Cause nothing else lasts long for me

It's all just a fucked up lie
This isn't who I am
Can I simply be erased
Recreated to be a slave

Awakened
To another life
Track Name: Burning City
A waking horror
Their living nightmare
I stand before them
I am death

I am what they dread
The monster in their heads
Nothing can stop me
From crushing all I see

I hear the screams they cry
The racing beats of hearts
They call out for a savior
But none will come

Their world begins to crumble
The sky rains down in red
The ash begins to blow
As the waves of death start to flow

Burning City
Searing, melting human flesh

Burning City
Nothing survives the flames

The cowards they try and run
In hopes to save their lives
The sky rains down upon them
Trapping them in

They have no chance in hell
I'll burn every last one
From atop my throne of ash
I'll watch this whole damn world burn

Burning City
Searing, melting human flesh

Burning City
Only I survive the flames

My world is one filled with oceans of ash
Screams of torment
Skies of fire and death
Track Name: From The Shadows
I'm left alone, the faces have faded away
Their empty memories have left me in dismay
Now I live in my precious nothingness
Forever in their shadows feeding on darkness

Dwelling in my self made prison
Long forgotten by them all

I am tortured with everything I do
No screams of sadness call in search of me
I've become a face they'll never see
From the shadows I gaze at all I've lost

And now those times are gone our ties are now undone
I am to you as the night is to the sun
Leave me here in eternal nothingness
Forever lost in an empty life

Dwelling in my self made prison
Long forgotten by them all

I am tortured with everything I do
No screams of sadness call in search of me
I've become a face they'll never see
From the shadows I gaze at all I've lost
Track Name: You're Not Here
It's been so long since you were here
Time moves so slow
Why can't i let go of the past
And you

Are you happy where you are now
I'm not
Even if things could change
Would you even want it

You're here no more
My heart I've lost you to
The shadows
I wish I could pull you back into my arms
Just once more

But now your tears are falling
Where I cannot reach

I have no right words
To tell you how I feel

But I try with every breath I take

You left me standing here alone
Nothing but gray
Full of hopes that will never be
And grief
I wish that I would not believe
My lies
You won't be coming back
And I cannot follow


You're here no more
My heart I've lost to you
The shadows
I wish I could pull you back into my arms
Just once more

If only we were stronger
If only you were here
All your loving words
I'll never hear again
Wait for me
Wherever you are now
Track Name: Not Forgotten
For so long
I have stayed in silence
Lost to this cold world
Alone in a nightmare
My pain will be heard
No more shall I suffer
On my own
I will reclaim my soul

This world had cast me to the shadows
To die
But they failed
I will not be erased again

From the ashes of a burning city
To the cries from a broken heart
This world will hear
The screams of a dead man
No longer will they forget me

Life has changed
I'm no longer the same
The man I used to be
Has long since left this world
Haunting memories
Though they still weigh on me
I have grown
I'm no longer their slave

No longer will I watch
From a far and wait
No longer will I carry
This pain for you
No longer will this life of mine go on
No longer will I stay dead for you
No more

From the ashes of a burning city
To the cries from a broken heart
This world will hear
The screams of a dead man
No longer will they forget me

Pain is a part of me
That now has grown on me
So much stronger I've become
The missing parts of me
Replaced with misery
Something never forgotten
