Track Name: Tragic Immoral Illusions
015
clutching the knife, there's no sympathy
piercing the skin, cutting deeper
ending a life out of anger

041
as the personality changes
there's no feelings of love
just a high of adrenaline

120
blood, there's so much blood
like a river of chocolate
to a young child's mind

204
nothing can compare to this exquisite pleasure
wanting to capture this feeling forever

304
wait on the other side
not questioning an altered mind
fixated on one life
killing over and over

340
the experience changes a person
the heart begins to glow black
after realizing fate is in their hands
there's no way to go back

514
clutching the knife, there's no sympathy
piercing the skin, cutting deeper
Track Name: Reliving Fading Memories
003
happiness, has it been so long
what once was, is no more

026
the memories lose their power
soon they will be gone

048
holding a body like old times
but now it's a lifeless corpse

135
on the ground with eyes closed
thinking about the past
was it worth it, to change the present
there should have been more to it
squeezing the brain of every wave
feeding the nostalgic beast
creating new memories just isn't the same
not after what's been done

240
grasping for deja vu
memories replaced with dreams of violence
what once was, is no more

318
reliving fading memories

329
what once was, is no more
Track Name: Convoluted Justification
011
aaahhh

020
the blame lies elsewhere
to not realize the effect of her actions
she knew there would be consequences
paying the ultimate price

040
try to run away
from the truth
it is almost time
destiny deserved

055
convoluted justification

104
convoluted justification

122
aaahhh

140
projecting feelings onto a mirror, oblivious
turning the logic and twisting the facts
right and wrong are creations of man
does it ever really matter?

231
whose hands does the judgment lie in
a stranger or someone involved in the act
understanding the intent

401
aaahhh

419
life is decided by choices
determining the path, the flow of time
righteousness or vengeance
nobody else's business

439
try to run away
from the truth
it is almost time
destiny deserved

504
convoluted justification

514
convoluted justification
Track Name: Two Questionable Regrets
008
trapped in a state of second guessing
a never ending tug of war
filling the mind with potential outcomes
fueled by constant what-ifs
the battle between good and evil
where was the conscience during the brutal act
eaten away by shame and leftover rage
unable to adapt, confronting the fear

048
a sociopath could accept and move on

056
a decent person wouldn't even be here

126
two questionable regrets

143
maybe her life didn't deserve to end
reasons were there, but why even bother
was it worth the satisfaction, to conquer a human
when all that's left is more pain

215
maybe the end result just wasn't enough
torture and rape were left untested
the ultimate form of vengeful humiliation
when all that's left is more pain

247
aaahhh

305
two questionable regrets

345
can't shake the feeling of changing time
to discover oneself and what lies within
cracking under pressure as the curtain comes down
living the life that was chosen
dislocate matter from clean perceptions
clawing into the face of acceptance
Track Name: Rare Feelings of Vertigo
009
never felt before
aging or a punishment
a life unbalanced

019
cedar quantum nodule
fictitious antique condensation
prescious helium container

035
aaahhh

051
seeking the sometimes glorious
entranced by its aura

057
endless migraines
equilibrium departs
sudden dimentia
opening holes

113
aaahhh

118
going nowhere

129
seeking the sometimes glorious
entranced by its aura
gasping for life
grasping for death

144
endless migraines
equilibrium departs
sudden dimentia
opening holes

210
beginning to sweat
feeling sick
unable to walk
fallen over
when the mind finally shuts down
dreams of the shining star
in the night, fall to the ground
an explosion of light and mental fatigue
Track Name: The Eventual Desperation
032
end of time, clasp the chest
sorrow, fight till the end
heart of glass, going down
lifeless figurine, maybe next time
inside melting minds, no time to live
shapeshifter, it's all their fault
journey to the line, it's time to cross
sabotaged, never again

133
keeping it together, for what and why
cylinder, filled with magic sand

218
the eventual desperation

229
methods of nonexistence

240
the eventual desperation

309
climbing
backwards in the ground

318
hard limits, plausibility
forlorn, the body obtuse
fantasy, inevitably gratuitous
constant flailing thoughts, on the bed with background white
feeding negative, the wings are close - the feelings gone
full of rotten food, anticipation
substitute a limb, get up and out
years of training, catching the breath

413
murder, is that what they saw

437
fortunate subtleties, try it again
sinking through the crack, the leak is real - the face is not
featureless fragrance, makes a good team

537
the eventual desperation

549
methods of nonexistence

600
the eventual desperation

640
climbing
climbing up the tower, the tower of air
