Track Name: Enter The Machine
She tried to save me...
She tried to save me...
She tried to save me...
But I could not save myself

Within my wasted youth
A lifetime of wasted truth
The future's buried in the past
I told myself this wouldn't last
But I could not save myself

Burn away the flesh
Fuck away the rest
Tear away the layers grown
I sit upon this twisted throne
Because I could not save myself

Enter The Machine
Everything's turning green
Shimmering on a broken screen
I can't even feel anything
Because I could not save myself

She tried to save me!
She tried to save me!
She tried to save me!
But I could not save myself!
Track Name: Generator
Sometimes I feel like I'm alone in this world
Sometimes I feel like this is all in my head
Sometimes I feel like I'm just living a lie
Sometimes I feel like I am dead

But every time
I try to leave it behind me
I feel it try
Try to bring me back in

'Cause it wants to control me
And it wants to make me scream
And it wants to make me bleed
And it wants for me to believe
In you

Sometimes I feel like I'm on top of the world
Sometimes I feel like jumping off a rooftop
Sometimes I feel like nothing ever matters
Sometimes I feel like I can make it stop

But every time
I try to leave it behind me
I feel it try
Try to bring me back in

'Cause it wants to control me
And it wants to make me scream
And it wants to make me bleed
And it wants for me to believe
In you

Sometimes I feel like I can conquer the world
Sometimes I feel like everyone's a liar
Sometimes I feel like it's all at my fingertips
Sometimes I feel like it could all burn up in fire

'Cause it wants to control me
And it wants to make me scream
And it wants to make me bleed
And it wants for me to believe
In you

Track Name: Deicide
Hey Zeus
Hey man
Tell me
If you can
Ruled Olympus
Iron fist
Show me
What we've missed

We ask ourselves the eternal question: Why?
Hoping some day the gods will hear our cries
We put our faith into the skies
Where no one knows or sees the lies
That break our pointless, minute lives
We pull the wool down over our own eyes
Our eyes
Our eyes
Our eyes

Jesus
Save us
Come and be
Our scapegoat
See through
Our eyes
As we
Crucify you

We ask ourselves the eternal question: Why?
Hoping some day the gods will hear our cries
We put our faith into the skies
Where no one wants to see the lies
That break our pointless, minute lives
To crush all hope and meaning when we die
We die
We die
We die

Walk on
Water
Sink in
Slaughter
Offer
Your hand
Tell me
If you can

We ask ourselves the eternal question: Why?
Hoping some day the gods will hear our cries
We put our faith into the skies
We showed colour of our insides
Proved ourselves through deicide
Destroyed them all to save our pride
Our pride
Our pride
Our pride
Track Name: Venus Rising
Venus...

So quiet here, I never want to leave
You can try to move on, but you know what it means
The gases ebb and flow to create worlds
The future and the past have been unfurled

Stay here with me

The barren place where I can be alone
Solitude and silence in my home
Am I awake? alive? or in my room?
The questions that I ask, they shall consume

Stay here with me
Don't leave me here

Forever and a lifetime here in inner space
I hope that I don't live to see another face
But in my silent state, I question why
Will I return to Earth, or to the skies?

Stay here with me
Don't leave me here
I need you now

The darkness in my soul has made me crash
I think that I'm about to go do something rash
I can't recall the reason I came here
And all I feel, denial, guilt, and fear...

Stay here with me
Don't leave me here
I need you now
Or I'll disappear

Stay here with me
Don't leave me here
I need you now
Or I'll disappear

...I'll disappear...
Track Name: Isolation
Why did you leave him here again?
Once more he's all on his own
It's like they were never here at all
Just fragments of the unknown
So before you disappear
And you keep him waiting here
One more thing before you go
He doesn't even want to know

Where on Earth did everybody go?
Where on Earth did everybody go?
Where on Earth did everybody go?
Where does everyone keep going?

Why do you hide away from him?
Is it something that was said?
Were you never here at all?
Was it all just in his head?
Now he sits here all alone
Upon a cracked and lonesome throne
He thought that he heard you say
You wanted him to go away

Where on Earth did everybody go?
Where on Earth did everybody go?
Where on Earth did everybody go?
Where does everyone keep going?

All the traces that you've left
All the places that you've been
But he still sits here bereft
Still not knowing what it means
Leave this place and don't return
Hide your shame and false concern
It has always been this way
You were never meant to stay

All the traces that you've left
All the places that you've been
But he still sits here bereft
Still not knowing what it means
Leave this place and don't return
Hide your shame and false concern
It has always been this way
You were never meant to stay


Where on Earth did everybody go?
Where on Earth did everybody go?
Where on Earth did everybody go?
Where does everyone keep going?

Where on Earth did everybody go?
Where on Earth did everybody go?
Where on Earth did everybody go?
Where does everyone keep going?
Track Name: Digital Omega
I used to have a name
I used to have a face
I used to have a voice
And I used to know this place

The smell of peroxide
The feel of your skin
I can't recognize this place
The world I am in

And on the other side
I look out through the grid
Beyond a broken screen
The ego and the id
And all that I can take
And everything I am
The point where I will break
For I am just a man

Lines across a screen
Flickers of a light
Glitches in the void
Such a pretty sight

I try to scream your name
But I'm silenced by machines
I might still be awake
Or in a digital dream

And on the other side
I reach out through the grid
Beyond the broken screens
The ego and the id
And all that I can take
And everything I am
The point where I will break
For I am just a man

Staring at the moon
Fading in the stars
The answers in the sky
Do you know who you are?

And still somehow I know
I've been through this before
I've given all I can
But still they wanted more

And on the other side
I reach out through the grid
Beyond the broken screens
The ego and the id
And all that I can take
And everything I am
The point where I will break
For I am just a man
Track Name: Future
If anyone had told us
Yeah, if anyone knew the truth
Then would they have even told us?
Would they waste away our youth?

For if we'd known that our lives
Could turn out to be this way
Then would any of us have bothered
To wake up to yesterday?

The Future's never set in stone
There's no fate but what we make
But if your will should falter, now
Then you will lose the faith

For everything you've taught me
This is the path that I must take
We must learn our lessons for ourselves
We must make our our mistakes

They told us that we could be
Anything we want to be
But, the thing is, they all lied
Yes, the thing is, they all lied
The Future we predicted that
We would grow up into
I say, that Future won't arrive
Oh no, that Future won't arrive
And how could I remember
All those words you said to me
I'd have to be a magic man
I'd have to be a magic man
For if we don't stray from this path
Then we shall never know the truth
So take a breath and hold my hand
Take a breath and hold my hand

And I will never compromise
For I've my own beliefs
And no matter how hard you try
You cannot take them from me

And I will find a way to live
And I will make this right
I'll take back the things taken from me
And I'll never turn down a fight

They said, "Pick your battles wisely, son,
For you can't win them all,"
I'll show them what it means to me
And break out from these walls

So grab my hand and hold it tight
For we walk in uncharted paths
We will make the Future as we go
And I can feel it in our grasp

They told us that we could be
Anything we want to be
But, the truth is, they all lied
Yes, the truth is, they all lied
The Future we predicted that
We would grow up into
I say, that Future won't arrive
Oh no, that Future won't arrive
And how could I remember
All those words you made me say
I'd have to be a magic man
I'd have to be a magic man
For if we don't stray from this path
Then we shall never know the truth
So take a breath and hold my hand
And take a breath and hold my hand

Oh...

The future is now
The future is now
The future is now
The future is now
Track Name: Serotonin
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Destroyer
Flaming sword of righteousness
Cuts through the bloody flaming mess
Strapped into the guillotine
With its white metallic sheen
My victims let out a cry
The only thing before they die
I am wicked to the core
A soldier in this Holy War

You can't stop me! (Can't stop me)
You can't stop me! (Can't stop me)
You can't stop me! (Can't stop me)
You can't stop me! (DESTROYER)
You can't stop me! (Can't stop me)
You can't stop me! (Can't stop me)
You can't stop me! (Can't stop me)
You can't stop me! (DESTROYER)

My name is Destroyer
I kill all within the world
Torture innocents without care
Your mind is what I share!
Inside you is where I dwell
I wake up and unleash Hell
Look inside, you know it's true
That you are me and I am you

You can't stop me! (Can't stop me)
You can't stop me! (Can't stop me)
You can't stop me! (Can't stop me)
You can't stop me! (DESTROYER)
You can't stop me! (Can't stop me)
You can't stop me! (Can't stop me)
You can't stop me! (Can't stop me)
You can't stop me! (DESTROYER)
Track Name: Anomaly
I'm floating in a sea
Of grave uncertainty
And so I write this song
To know where I belong
To try and find my way
Through each and every day
The truth that I now see
I'm an Anomaly

The things I try to write
I scrawl onto these walls
To prove that I was here
Before the hammer falls
I want to make things right
To forgive all my sins
I try to keep control
To keep the evils in
Crackling through my mind
Swimming in my head
I don't know where I am
I wish that I was dead

And I will try again
To right all that was wrong
I hope it makes it through
In poem, verse and song
Forever and a day
It drifts on through the past
The message that I wrote
To no one never lasts

Your God is not here anymore.
Track Name: Message To No One
Trying hard
To see what it all
Means to me
Pushing out
To the gateway
To our soul's embrace
To our birthplace
To our rightful place

To our home...

And we must make a journey
And we must strive together
For if we do not falter
Then we shall reach the heavens

And I know
That you and I must go
To a place
Where all we know is
Warmth and love and happiness
I used to think that I knew where we were going
But now that I know it was all a lie
As we break from the womb, into the New World
I just hold onto you, and say goodbye

And we must make our journey
And we must strive together
For if we do not falter
Then we shall reach the heavens

And we must make our journey
And we must strive together
For if we do not falter
Then we shall reach the heavens

Then we shall reach the heavens...

[There is
A new world
Buried beneath
The sand
It
Just takes
A lot of
Digging]
Track Name: Angel Arm
You charred the planet
You scarred the moon
You made their spaceships spiral
Into this dune
Under this azure sky
You killed her fast
The seeds of the future lie
Buried in the past

And so I wandered for an eon in this endless desert
Crying out into the sky
Now that I have found you, deep within this oasis
You and I...One of us must die!

You betrayed me, Brother
Waning of the moon
Screaming to the skies
I'll have my vengeance soon!

Crawling deep within the bowels of your fortress
Charging fast as I break through
Crippling every one of your minions and your peons
It's all worth it to get to you...
Oh!

You betrayed me, Brother!
Waxing of the moon
Screaming to the skies
I'll have my vengeance soon!

Knives:
[You don't understand anything anymore, Vash.
You've lost your sense of self.
Allowed yourself to become a slave to your emotions.
No better than those you wish to save.

And now, as you yourself said
There is but one outcome.
You and I.
One of us must die.]

It doesn't have to be this way!
[You are a fool!]
We could be a force for love and peace!
[Those ideals died along with *her!*]
If only for once...you would lay down your sword!
[NEVER!]
...you would truly understand!

[It will not end like this...]
KNIIIIIIIIVES!

We charred this planet
[That we did]
We scarred its moons
[And all for what?]
Under this azure sky
[The sky...]
I'll have my vengeance soon...

Track Name: Walk On Water
I met a magic man
Who had a daughter
She learned her lessons well
But still, I taught her
She followed willingly
As lambs to slaughter
We shared forbidden fruits
And things I brought her

You may say I'm a miracle mannequin
Here I come with my mystical plan again
Although you think I can
I'm just a man

I don't Walk On Water
(Oh no)
I don't Walk On Water
(Oh no)

I followed willingly
Her sweet temptation
She had me hypnotized
And still, I'm waiting
My dromedary dreams
As wet as oceans
With sand dunes bearing seeds
She set in motion

You may say I'm a cynical charlatan
There I go with my whimsical ways again
Although you think I can
I'm just a man

I don't Walk On Water
(Oh no)
I don't Walk On Water
(Oh no)

Kaleidoscopical eyes
As you look in the mirror
And the long is getting shorter
As the far is now nearer

Are you just a mirror standing in front of me?
Am I blind, can my eyes really see?

You may say I'm a miracle mannequin
Here I come with my mystical plan again
Although you think I can
I'm just a man

I don't Walk On Water
(Oh no)
I don't Walk On Water
(Oh no)

My dromedary dreams
As wet as oceans
With sand dunes bearing seeds
She set in motion
Track Name: Fascination Street
Oh, it's opening time, down on Fascination Street
So just...cut the conversation, and get out for a bit
'Cause I feel it all fading and I'm pleading and I'm begging
To drag you down with me, to kick the last nail in

Yeah, I like you like that, like I...like you to scream
But if you open your mouth, babe, I can't be responsible
For quite what goes in, hard to care what comes out
So just pull on your hair, baby, pull on your pout

And let's move to the beat like we know that it's over
Stop going over, over my shoulder
So just pull on your face, pull on your feet
And let's hit opening time down on Fascination Street

So just pull on your hair, pull on your pout
Fuck the conversation, just open your mouth
Pull on your face, pull on your feet
And let's hit opening time down on Fascination Street

Down on Fascination Street
Down on Fascination Street
Down on Fascination Street...
Track Name: Modern Love Is Automatic
She's...an Automatic

Down...in old Japan
Where...their love's forbidden
You've got to keep it hidden
Right now

I'd have to be a magic man
I'd have to be a magic man
For if we don't stray from this path
We shall never know the truth
So take a breath and hold my hand
Take a breath and hold my hand

The future is now

Degrade me

Screaming mouth
Open eyes
Yellow skin
Serpentine

Preceed me
Succeed me
Possess me
Obsess me

Let me go
Let me go
Let me go
Let me go

Track Name: Zeppelin
We leave today
For another plane
We leave it all behind

Ever since the night
When the world came crashing down
All I do is look into your eyes

And I see
A glimpse of my reflection
All I want to do is hold you tight

As we step towards
The future of our lives
Things will never be the same

...

And together
Maybe we can find a way
To hold this shattered glass in one

In the moon
The things I see are faintly there
Swirling spirals in the sky
