Track Name: Oz
Oz

Last night, I found myself in a strange place.
The faces that I saw were not new, but I don’t recall seeing them.
{You Think I’m Blind, Yet Clear I See}
I began to wander the streets in this strange surreal syndrome, slowly serenading me into places, odd, welcoming, and inescapable.
{Your Soul is bare, in front of me}
I don’t think I’m waking up or if I can please don’t try.
{Lost But yet, I have no fear}
I am so far lulled by this place as it wades over my decision to stay…or go
{I think I’m in Oz, and I think I like it here!}


Don’t try to think and don’t try to see
What’s happening right here around you me
Nobody believes in what I can do
So sit right here and I’ll show you


I think I’m in Oz don’t know who I am
I think I’m in Oz don’t know where I am
I think I’m in Oz don’t know why I’m here
I think I’m in Oz and I think I like it here.

Can you see what lies in you
Cause if you can then I can too
Free my soul from this horrid plight
Or step right up and we’ll start a fight

I think I’m in Oz don’t know who I am
I think I’m in Oz don’t know where I am
I think I’m in Oz don’t know why I’m here
I think I’m in Oz and I think I like it here.

Doom and Disaster are awaiting you
Unless you decide what next too do
You can not run You Can not Hide
Just sit down and enjoy the ride!

UH!!!
Track Name: Grave Situation
Grave Situation


I cannot see the light of day
Yet darkness comforts me
I’m alone, there’s nothing here
As far as I can see
Beaten back inside my head
My demons want to play
Morally I try to fight
Yet it all turns black and grey

Six feet down, I cannot breathe
I know now, the end it’s near
I am nailed, into to this box
And I now know, I must face my fears


I’m in a Grave Situation
As the lid closes tight
I’m in a Grave Situation
All alone here tonight
I’m in a Grave Situation
Hear the dirt falling down
I’m in a Grave Situation
There’s no help to be found

Death it comes straight for my soul
Yet I refuse to yield
Foreign is the thought of failing
Locked away and sealed
Fighting hard through pain and anger
My breath it slips away
Fading into dark and blackness
Life it fades away

I’m in a Grave Situation
As the lid closes tight
I’m in a Grave Situation
All alone here tonight
I’m in a Grave Situation
Hear the dirt falling down
I’m in a Grave Situation
There’s no help to be found

Twitching, turning, blinking, moving
I’ve returned to life
Punching through my rotted coffin
The nails cut like a knife
Now I feel no pain at all
Up from underground
Pale and rotten is my flesh
I…Hunger For Brains!
Track Name: Still I
Still I

Still I fall and still I crawl and
Still I waste one single day and
Still I fall and still I crawl and
Still I waste every single day again


I look up now, into the sky
And watch the rain fall from up high
I’ve fallen down, into the ground
There I rest until I’m found

Still I fall and still I crawl and
Still I waste one single day and
Still I fall and still I crawl and
Still I waste every single day again


I will not fall, I will not crawl
I will not waist one single day and
I will not fall, I will not crawl
I will not waste every single day again

Up from the ashes, my spirit will rise
Burning with vengeance, look into my eyes
You thought that you’d taken, my will to survive
My time to defeat you, it now has arrived

Still I fight and still I’m right and
Still I win one single day and
Still I fight and still I’m right and
Still I win every single day again

Standing up tall now, the victory is mine
You still won’t admit it, but that’s just fine
I’m stronger now than I have ever been before
Now it’s all over I have ended this war

Still I
Track Name: Lost Soul
Lost Soul


Look into the night
Grasping out so desperately
Trying to find light and comfort
Blackness is all I see

Vision is failing me
Receding into my mind
Feeling as though
The world has left me behind

I am lost at sea
Darkness is surrounding me
Never been like this before
Constantly searching out for the shore
Vision is failing me
Receding into my mind
Feeling as though
The world has left me behind

Look into my eyes
Tell me what you see
I am Fading
Wandering around
Nothing to be found
I’m a Lost Soul
Track Name: Hell Was Full (So I Came Back)
Hell Was Full (So I Came Back)

They pulled me down
Into the fires of hell
Destroyed my mind
Horrors that I cannot tell
Sent me back burned, bloodied, twisted and cursed
Cast from the depths
These crimes that couldn’t be worse


Hell was full (So I Came Back)
Hell was full
Hell was full (They won’t take me back!)
Hell was full
So I came back

My body gone, face torn and eyes burned out
I was a man now there is some doubt
Demons hide, Succubae turned and fled
No Place for me in that infernal den

Hell was full (So I Came Back)
Hell was full
Hell was full (They won’t take me back!)
Hell was full
So I came back

(3rd Verse)
I’ve returned, Hellfire in my wake
No relief, mind and body break
Pestilence covers the once blue sky
I am death and you are here to die!

Hell was full (So I Came Back)
Hell was full
Hell was full (They won’t take me back!)
Hell was full
So I came back
