Track Name: Empty World
Bleak, this world of shit I can’t believe
There’s nothing more I hate to admit
Promise, all of it lies we’ve been deceived
The horrors I view through these tired eyes

Stuck in this empty world
Stuck in this empty world
Stuck in this empty world
We’re stuck in this empty world of shit

Hope no we are fucked the damage is done
No going back we’re hopelessly stuck
Tragic our days are filled the moments we’ve lived
Cannot be erased my blood has spilled

Stuck in this empty world
Stuck in this empty world
Stuck in this empty world
We’re stuck in this empty world of shit

We live inside an empty world that is all our own
We have no one to talk to, we have nowhere to go
We have no need to live, we have no need to cry
The only thing that there is left for us to do is die
Track Name: ILL CONTENT
Never happy where I am, never satisfied
Never seem to have enough, to fill the void inside
Never want what I can have, gimmie what you’ve got
Always need a little more, gotta have a lot

Ill Content – Life’s a bore
Ill Content – Gotta have more
Ill Content – Not satisfied
Ill Content – Dead inside

Never happy where I am, never satisfied
Never seem to have enough, to fill the void inside
Never want what I can have, gimmie what you’ve got
Always need a little more, gotta have a lot

I don’t like who I am
I don’t like what I’ve got
I don’t like where I’ve been
I don’t like my stupid friends
I don’t like my family
I don’t like this misery
I don’t like my stupid life
Sick of how I feel inside

Ill Content – Life is shit
Ill Content – Sick of it
Ill Content – I see red
Ill Content – Better off dead
Track Name: Promise of the Grave
The black hand of death
Grips me with desire
My life is only ashes
Waiting for the fire
As I drawl the blade
Swiftly through my skin
Crimson tears promise me
A new life will begin

No longer forced to suffer this eternity of pain
I close my eyes forever, finally nothing shall remain
The memories of misery and darkness slowly pass
The sweet embrace of victory has truly come at last

The unrelenting terror no longer shall persist
In this shitty world I cannot exist
Released for my agony, blessed as can be
With my final breath, I have been set free
Track Name: Broken
Closed the door on everyone, shut the world outside
They just seemed so different, than how I felt inside
No one understands me, they don’t even care
If I live or die, watch me disappear

Inside the darkness of my blackened heart
Your brutal acts have torn my world apart
I can’t escape, the damage is done
My life has died, before it’s begun

I’m broken
I’m broken can’t fix me

The little lights inside my eyes are now as black as coal
Reflections of the agony and anguish of my soul
Walls of seething anger have built my room of pain
I can’t bear to carry this misery and shame
Track Name: Just For Today
Everyday’s another day
Time is slipping fast
People come and people go
Things they never last
Enjoy your life here and now
Soon it will be gone
The legacy that you create
Is all that carries on

The things we love will one day turn to dust
Along with those four words in god we trust

Everything that ever was will slowly fade away
That is why I’m making sure I’m living for today
No matter has happened, I don’t ever sweat
When it’s time for me to go I’ll never have regret

Just for today I’ll do what I can
Just for today I’ll understand
Just for today I’ll have no fear
Just for today I’ll show I care
Track Name: I'm Your Mistake
You have some nerve, to call me your son
You were never there, to me you are no one
I was alive, to you I didn’t exist
The only attention was the back of your fist

Why were you my father, why did you not care
Was it your addiction, were you filled with fear
Why did you not want me, was I your mistake
Can’t you see me hurting, my heart it fucking breaks

When you’re around, I feel I’m invisible
You don’t understand why I’m always so miserable
You gave me this life, then you left me to die
Why was I born, can you please tell me why

Why were you my father, why did you not care
Was it your addiction, were you filled with fear
Why did you not want me, was I your mistake
Can’t you see me hurting, my heart it fucking breaks

My heart it fucking breaks
My heart it fucking breaks
My heart it fucking breaks
My heart it fucking breaks

Why daddy why, please tell me why
Sometimes I want to live, sometimes I want to die
Why daddy why, please tell me why
Sometimes I want to live, sometimes I want to die
Track Name: My Fist Your Face
I heard that you were talking just the other day
Tell me what you’re feeling, I’d really wish you’d say
It seems that I am always the last to hear your crap
Now you’ve gone too far, and I am going to snap

For your sake, I hope you see me coming
And if you do, you’d better start running
Cause you can’t hide, there’s no place

My fist your face
My fist your face

At first it didn’t bother me, so I let it go
But now I’m gonna hurt you
Thought you’d like to know
You may think it’s funny
We’ll see who’s laughing last
I’ll be the one who’s laughing
When I kick your fucking ass

For your sake, I hope you see me coming
And if you do, you’d better start running
Cause you can’t hide, there’s no place

My fist your face
My fist your face
Track Name: The Shadow
I have felt the shadows
Of my darkest fear
Slowly descend upon me
They ever are so near
Writhing in my torment
The terror in my mind
The twitching of my fingers
The shiver up my spine

I can feel them in my dreams
No one hears my silent screams
They arrive when darkness falls
Only I can hear their calls

To the grave of death, take my final breath

I feel their gaze upon me apparitions’ cold and black
Drawing ever closer preparing for attack
Silently I struggle in my private little hell
They’re coming to collect the soul I had to sell
Track Name: Endless Pain
Embrace the endless pain
It’ll never go away
No matter how you try
It’ll haunt you every day

When I try to piece together all the fragments of my mind
When I glimpse the past that I had hoped to leave behind
It brings up something deep inside that I don’t want to see
The battered tortured image of the boy I used to be

As the days go past, as I live my life
The decisions I make, are they wrong or right
As I look back, do I have regret
And if I do, what have I learned yet

Embrace the endless pain
It’ll never go away
No matter how you try
It’ll haunt you every day

For as long as I remember, I had felt so torn inside
Could not relate to others, through my anger I would hide
Behind a wall of total isolation I had fled
Sometimes the bitter feelings, made me wish that I was dead

As the days go past, as I live my life
The decisions I make, are they wrong or right
As I look back, do I have regret
And if I do, what have I learned yet

EMBRACE THE ENDLESS PAIN
