Track Name: Depth Of Me
This Hatred stems from what’s inside my head
You want to see me lose the plot you’ve come at the right time
Dark feelings, dark thoughts, you wanna see?
A walking time bomb, come with me….

Can’t take you, can’t take
I look the other way
These feelings die with me
Don’t look. Don’t try
We’re living out this lie
These feelings call to me

Can’t help you, You broke me
This pressure rides with me
You’ve taken me to the depths of who I want to be.
Can’t thank you, You broke me
This pressure rides with me
You’ve taken me to the depths of who I want to be.

This fear is what I try to hide
You pushed me way to far, now I want you to die
Too much too young you want to see
Mission of self destruct come with me

Can’t take you, can’t take
I look the other way
These feelings die with me
Don’t look. Don’t try
We’re living out this lie
These feelings call to me

Can’t help you this, You broke me
This pressure rides with me
You’ve taken me to the depths of who I want to be.
Can’t thank you this, You broke me
This pressure rides with me
You’ve taken me to the depths of who I want to be.
Track Name: Flame On!
Spark it up - Let's get this party jumpin'
Fire it up - Bring it to the ground
Let it burn, let it burn, let it burn!
Strike the match - It's my very existence
Stoke it up - Lose myself in the flames
Let it burn, let it burn, let it burn!


Come on - Set me on fire
I want to feel me burn
Come on - Set me on fire
I wanna light up your world

I started young - in the fields around me
A box of matches my only true friends
Let 'em burn, let 'em burn, let 'em burn!
Mesmerised by the dancing flames
Their magic touch the only light in my life
Let 'em burn, let 'em burn, let 'em burn!

Come on - Set me on fire
I want to feel me burn
Come on - Set me on fire
I wanna light up your world

I did want to set the world on fire,
Everything I've touched has always leaped into flame!
Let it burn, let it burn, let it burn!
With my final match I'll join with my master,
I want to know how it feels to burn!
Let me burn, let me burn, let me burn!

Come on - Set me on fire
I want to feel me burn
Come on - Set me on fire
I want to light up your fucking world...
Track Name: Lone Survivor
Driven from the safety of my hidden bunker,
The howling wind, it stings my eyes,
I take my first look at the fractured landsacape,
A broken city that used to thrive!

There was no warning, no sense of danger,
A nation slept, without a fear.
Like a thief at night, it came from nowhere,
MIRV struck from his hidden lair...

Lone survivor? Fluke or curse?
But not long left in this un-i-verse
Every breath I take fills my lungs with poison
I suffer damage I cannot reverse

I walk alone - the streets are empty,
The poisoned ash beneath my feet,
The howling wind, my only friend now,
Its toxic touch, it chills me deep

Shattered buildings, they loom above me,
Like crumbling gravestones of a long past race.
There's nothing left here, no hope for rescue
I feel the cold gaze of death's white face

Lone survivor? Fluke or curse?
But not long left in this un-i-verse
Every breath I take fills my lungs with poison
I suffer damage I cannot reverse

Every breath I take contorts me,
Mutating cells against my will.
I'm coughing blood, there can't be long now,
Until the last man alive is still!

Lone survivor? Fluke or curse?
But not long left in this un-i-verse
Every breath I take fills my lungs with poison
I suffer damage I cannot reverse
Track Name: The Upper Hand
I went out on the town with a tall blond girl,
she cut me down at the knees...
I thought some drinks would have loosened her up,
And the rest would be a breeze...

It quickly came clear I was getting nowhere,
I tried all the tricks in the book;
She brushed me aside with my jaw open wide,
Should have been like a fish on a hook!

Rejected! Out of hand
Rejected! Am I less of a man?
Rejected! I need a better plan
Rejected! I thought I had the upper hand with you!

My good sense of humour - it didn't amuse her,
Her perfect face never smiled I swear...
The Shawshank redemption - didn't gab her attenttion,
She was more concerned with her hair...

We sat down to eat, but it wasn't sweet,
But I think I was still in denial...
She went through a checklist of questions for me,
It felt more like I was on trial...

What did I do?
How much do I earn?
Which university?
What did I learn?

Did I own my own house?
Do I go to the gym?
Did I drive a Porche?
Could we go for a spin?

I could tell by her eyes, she didn't like my replies,
Nothing was what she wanted to hear...
My job wasnt right, and my car was a fright,
Her motives became so very clear...

All that she wanted, was the money in my pocket,
And she walked when it wasn't enough...
So after this rejection, I look back in reflection,
It was more an escape than a rebuff!

Rejected! Out of hand
Rejected! Am I less of a man?
Rejected! I need a better plan
Rejected! I thought I had the upper hand with you!
Track Name: Staying Down
Feel like staying down again, but no one else will care...
Lurking in my gloomy room: I've been laying still for days.
Boredoms finally setting in, time is slowly crawling by...
I just can't seem to find a way so I've been laying here for days.

So much potential, but so much to waste,
So many chances, that I've not embraced;
But nobody listens, to the things I say,
Nobody notices me - It's like I've been erased...

Feel like staying down again, but This time you will see...
Forming thughts into a plan while I've been laying here for days.
I just need them to notice me, and see that I exist...
If I can just find the strength of will, I won't be lying here for days.

So much potential, but so much to waste,
So many chances, that I've not embraced;
But nobody listens, to the things I say,
Nobody notices - It's like I've been erased

I've tried my best to fit into your world - I've tried to conform
As I stand on this rooftop edge now - I'm ready to fall!

So much potential, but so much to waste,
So many chances, that I've not embraced;
But nobody listens, to the things I say,
Nobody notices - It's like I've been erased
Track Name: Undead (A Zombie Trilogy Part 1)
Hiding in a strangers house on the other side of town
Tried to reach the other shore before the bridge went down
Hiding in the cold dark now, daring to even breathe
If I can just evade the horde, it might be all I need

Undead? Is Hell now finally full?
Undead? A fucked up government tool?
Undead! They feed on all they see
Undead! Is this the end for me?

The pictures nailed upon the wall tell stories of happy times
Children, pets and grandparents, and timeless nursery rhymes
That was before the horde arrived, baying for human flesh
Rending people limb from limb and feasing on them fresh

Undead? Is Hell now finally full?
Undead? A fucked up government tool?
Undead! They feed on all they see
Undead! Is this the end for me?

They're at the door...
They moan and cry...
It gives away...
With just a sigh...
Time's running out...
Nowhere to hide...
I freeze in fear...
And cannot fly!

The groaning and the rotting flesh - my senses overload
The living dead are on the stairs: There's nowhere left to go?
I know that they can smell me now, I've got nowhere else to run
But I will take my own life now, with a bullet from this gun!

Undead? Is Hell now finally full?
Undead? A fucked up government tool?
Undead! They feed on all they see
Undead! This is the end for me!
