My Songs

By popular demand, I have conceded to posting songs I have written up here. These are only some of them; many (most) are unfinished, and it takes a long time to convert them en masse to HTML. More are on the way. (Translation: I'm too lazy to do a large amount of work at once. Most of you know what that's like.)
Enjoy.
And if you don't, then kill yourself, because you suck. =P

...And to Dust


I'm caught in a terrible conflict
I don't know what to do
The two conflicting voices
Are raging in my head
Finish the job, go all the way
The world seems to cheer
Follow your heart do what it seems
Is right my inner concience screams...

The world says to catch the moment
Before it blows away
Enjoy life while you have it,
Carpe Diem, seize the day
You who stand wasting your time-
Time's the fire in which we burn
Remember, man, that you are dust
And to dust you shall return

Do I follow through with this
Or do I wait for the right time?
But when will the time be right?
Will I ever catch my dreams?
Should I do what the world says
And rush to pass the finish line?
Or should I stop and enjoy the track,
And treasure every moment back?

The world says to catch the moment
Before it blows away
Enjoy life while you have it,
Carpe Diem, seize the day
You who stand wasting your time-
Time's the fire in which we burn
Remember, man, that you are dust
And to dust you shall return

Why the hell should I follow
The example of the world?
They push their own popularity
To give glory to themselves
I'll show the world my inner strength
I won't give in, I'll be me...
I'll do things the way I feel is right,
And never let you out of sight...

The world says to catch the moment
Before it blows away (Before it blows away...)
Enjoy life while you have it,
Carpe Diem, seize the day (Carpe Diem, seize the day)
You who stand wasting your time-
Time's the fire in which we burn
Remember, man, that you are dust
...And to dust you shall return
repeat 2x and fade

The Ashes


I see the way it is
I am but a tool
for your obscene usage
applied and thrown away
You think that I
would stand for this?
I will allow no such pleasure

I am above such things
I will not stand for this
You'll pay the price
I'll stand upon
the ashes

All the things we shared
gone without a trace
the bond which contained us
exists no longer
I wont be used
How can you say
you hate the one
you imitate?

Now I see you clearly
Your pleasure is my pain
I'll finish this
and piss upon
the ashes

Become the Inferno


Master beckons, hear your name
you're a chesspiece in his game
you will do his bidding well
if you resist you'll burn in hell

No blood on hands, its all on yours
In life's hallway, all locked doors
Your tiny life a waning fire
You must serve his all desire

Face me, embrace me now
I am the Inferno
Face me, embrace me now
I am the Inferno

No way out, you're in too deep
Your very soul, Master will reap
Writhing now in your firey cage
Your screams do not appease his rage

The way your crawl to Master's feet
Too weak to recognize deceit
The hand that feeds, you must not bite
Your soul now severed from the light

Face me, embrace me now
I am the Inferno
Face me, embrace me now
I am the Inferno

You must rebel yet you cannot
These things inside your soul will rot
You cannot bear to see his face
You must escape this god-wretched place

From the fires where he was born
You must call upon the storm
Forbidden power in your hands
Now born again in desert sands

Face it, embrace it now
Become the Inferno
Face it, embrace it now
Become the Inferno

The clash of darkness fills the night
Devastation: kill and fight
Once defeated, now you stand
To take control of this cursed land

Now you beckon, your word is done
At your command the servants run
You control what controlled you
And so the cycle begins anew

Face it, embrace it now
You are the Inferno
Face it, embrace it now
You are the Inferno

Thus, a sin against God and mankind is committed...

Catalyst


The day crawls along like ants
     on a dirty hill
Monotony drawn out for what
     seems eternity
Then you light the room, your face
     is a miracle
The glow of your beautiful eyes
     astounds me

When I'm near you
My life's reaction accelerates
When I'm with you
I'm transported to another place
When I see you
I'm glad that you can see me too
When I hold you
Eternity burns inside a moment

You're my catalyst

Life passes quickly in a state
     of eternal slowness
My emotion for you is tangible
     thing, a sheild
From the cares of this terrible world
     we live in
It envelops us both, we are together
     inside ourselves

When I'm near you
My life's reaction accelerates
When I'm with you
I'm transported to another place
When I see you
I'm glad that you can see me too
When I hold you
Eternity burns inside a moment

You're my catalyst
When the joy is past, when all
     that we shared
Is history, seeming ancient times,
     eons ago
My feelings for you will persist
     and thrive
You'll always be a special part
     of my life

When I'm near you
My life's reaction accelerates
When I'm with you
I'm transported to another place
When I see you
I'm glad that you can see me too
When I hold you
Eternity burns inside a moment

You're my catalyst

Down With Big Brother


Hail the führer motherfucker
Your rights are not your own anymore
You live under the boot of tyranny
Your freedom a thing of the past

Down With Big Brother
Down With Big Brother
Down With Big Brother
Motherfucker

Get back to work motherfucker
Your life is not your own anymore
My permission is your clearance
Don't breathe unless I tell you to

Down With Big Brother
Down With Big Brother
Down With Big Brother
Motherfucker

Wake your ass up motherfucker
Your mind is not your own anymore
Think the thoughts of the Party or die
Another unperson who never existed

If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever...

The only thing that is truly yours are the few cubic centimeters inside your skull.

Get the hell out motherfucker
Your home is not your own anymore
Draw your anger around yourself
Its the only thing you have now

Down With Big Brother
Down With Big Brother
Down With Big Brother
Motherfucker

The Hand of Death


This day has been the end of me
My life has been taken away
My love has been rejected
My spirit defiled, abused, confused

The only way thats left to see
Is the way that cannot be
Is a skewered parody
The face of death is mocking me

The time when the pieces fell
From the places they once fit
I watched my life crumble away
My love wasted, ejected, rejected

The only way thats left for me
Has come to pass far too quickly
The thing that cannot come to be
The eyes of death fall upon me

I will show them all that I feel too
The last will and testament
is written, set in stone
I have nothing to lose, save my soul
I will show them
I will end it
I will show her I still care...

My only love refuses me
My tortured soul abuses me
My twisted mind confuses me
My broken world misuses me

My worthless life disgraces me
My desparate hand erases me
My only option faces me
The arm of Death embraces me

Hypocrisy


suspicion
distrust
paranoia
live in fear
you cannot face
the world today
yet you live on
in your own way

I have been restricted by
governmental truth is but a lie
the rights they give us petty fools
and find the way around their own rules

deprived
denied
repressed
imprisonment
freedom for you
restricting me
your so-called rights
a mockery

I have been restricted by
governmental truth: it's but a lie
the rights they give us petty fools
and find the way around their own rules

conviction
contradition
restriction
breakaway
deny the free
indirectly
exception to
what it says to do

I have been restricted by
governmental truth is but a lie
the rights they give us petty fools
and find the way around their own rules

Institution


Fathom my power
comprehend my divinity
I have decended from the skies
to rule your earth
my true birthright
god of mankind

twist the divine law into the common law
twist a divine creation into a common slave
twist the words of god into common filth
twist god given freedom into power worship

watch me scheme
understand my deception
I have risen from the sewers
to decieve you all
a common criminal
I undermine your faith

twist the divine law into the common law
twist a divine creation into a common slave
twist the words of god into common filth
twist god given freedom into power worship

Bow down to me
I own your life
body mind and soul, you are mine
offer me your all
your blood stains my altar
a martyr to me

twist the divine law into the common law
twist a divine creation into a common slave
twist the words of god into common filth
twist god given freedom into power worship

scoff at my lies
you pathetic being
my web of deception is spun
you struggle uselessly
caught in my deceit
another pointless death

twist the divine law into the common law
twist a divine creation into a common slave
twist the words of god into common filth
twist god given freedom into power worship

Out of Place


You dominate where you cannot
Step over the line, you do not stop
Your power's end knows you no end
As you usurp your supposed friend

Play the people like a game
The work is done to spread your name
The mind-dull mass cooperates
You twist the rules to insure their fates

The pieces fall into their place
The satisfaction on your face
And when the goal is still untouched
I shall laugh, you stupid fuck.

I'll not be swayed, I'll not stand down
You can't hold me, Hide my frown
Or keep me from telling all
Your biggest weakness, to watch you fall

A rebellious few in secret meet
To cause your fall, the dark elite
The time to stand has now arrived
You'll no longer rule us in our lives

The time has come, your trial at hand
You must turn to face the band
The awakening masses see the war
Your twisted ways shall be no more

I meet your gaze, you stare at me
You defy that which must be
My glory brighter than the sun
And from your eyes, know I have won.

Rime


Beyond the murky water's edge
and 'neath its brackish film
Lies a secret, old, untouched
on which few have tales list
Spun in circles 'round a fire
in tongues of ages past
Of ancient lands, immortal kings
and things which should not be

This power discovered long ago
by one of noble blood
Whose heart and spirit knew no end;
whose faith was like a rock
Who was this who lift'd the veil
and revealed the snake inside?
He was a man of God, a man of faith
'til he fell before his pride

The power awaken'd, an evil damned
by God below the earth
An ancient shadow, Devil- forged
and loosed on mortal man
This king of old, the shadow took
his mind it now control'd
Eternal life it gave to him
the price: his kingly soul

The legends speak of many a man
who failed to try his hand
To find this king, destroy this thing
which burned across the land
They also say he never died,
but was hidden deep below
In fiery chambers to always burn
Dark thing without a soul

My son, this power that you seek
you must give up this day
Else your own life you will lose
t'will be taken this same way
Heed my warning young and old
'fore darkness claims your mind
Power cast by Satan's hand
brings doom to all mankind

Torn


A silent rain falls from the sky
Spatters on my weeping face
Who would have known so much
Joy could create so much pain

The end of a beautiful thing
And I don't understand
Why this disaster occurred
It is in my nature to question
But my nature torn
Yields no answers

The dagger twists with each ignorance
Those who once saw the flower
Now see it withered and question
But the answers are locked away forever

My heart tears me asunder
Rage burns through my veins
Confused, seeking a target
It is in my nature to forget
But my nature torn
Remains a scar

The light grows farther now
How I wish I could ignore it
But its brightness burns my spirit
From infinite distances

This fire burns me, leaves
Me a wasteland and I
Despair in sadness
It is in my nature to move on
But my nature torn
Allows no escape
