The Temple & The Fallen (2020)

1 . The Temple & The Fallen

I can't live another day

Inside this cage of rage

I want to break these chains

Emancipate this pain

I've finally seen the truth

And I owe it all to you

I didn't think that anyone could save me

 

For so long I've worn this face that is not mine

it's time to tear away the ugliness of this disguise

 

The light has broken through

I owe this clarity to you

I want to be your chosen

Ruler of your kingdom

A circumstance of fate

That brought us to this place

I want to be your chosen

The temple and the fallen

 

I want to breach the walls

And tear into your heart

I want to find a way to enslave you

Give yourself to me

succumb selfishly

Leave behind the ghosts that try to consume you

 

How much longer can we stay entrapt by our mistakes?

We can't deny desire or the risk that we must choose to take

 

The light has broken through

I owe this clarity to you

I want to be your chosen

Ruler of your kingdom

A circumstance of fate

That brought us to this place

I want to be your chosen

The temple and the fallen

 

Temptation

Damnation

This consummation

The temple and the fallen

 

The light has broken through

I owe this clarity to you

I want to be your chosen

Ruler of your kingdom

A circumstance of fate

That brought us to this place

I want to be your chosen

The temple and the fallen

 

I want to be your chosen

Ruler of your kingdom

I want to be your chosen

The temple and the fallen

 

2 . Gates of Desire 

Standing at your gates

Forsaking the light

Waiting for a chance to explore what's inside

The ground is stone and cold

The mirrors painted black

The doors shut behind me

There's no turning back

 

This prison inside of my mind is haunted

This labyrinth I cannot deny

Fantasy

 

Led by these thoughts of you

My lips graze your thighs

Stairways lead to madness

Each door a sin to hide

The fire of your touch

Sweet poison on your tongue

The need to be lost in you

Forsake everyone

 

This prison inside of my mind is haunted

This labyrinth I cannot deny

Fantasy

 

Lost inside and cannot see

fading from reality

Descending into lunacy

Desire overtaking me

Your silence is insanity

Please save me

 

This prison inside of my mind is haunted

This labyrinth I cannot deny

Fantasy, this fantasy

Fantasy, fantasy 

 

3 . The Drowning

You call me liar, you call me thief

A fallen angel with nothing to believe

The dark messiah, the demon's seed, the unclean

Disguises are all that you've seen

Your heart has been deceived

 

You turn your eyes to the sun

Blind to see the darkness you've released within me

With every fight a bit love in me dies

 

Dying slowly - drowning in uncertainty

The air in my lungs, choked out by your insecurities 

 

You're the victim, you're the weak

You're the martyr drenched in hypocrisy

The gilded treasure, lost at sea

The ship is sinking 

The monsters that wait beneath

They consume everything 

 

You turn your eyes to the sun

Blind to see the darkness you've released within me

With every fight a bit love in me dies

 

Dying slowly - drowning in uncertainty

The air in my lungs, choked out by your insecurities 

 

Drowning - the waters washing over me

Drowning - the demons, you have set them free

Drowning - sirens sing their melody

Drowning - the waves pull me out to sea

 

I'm your scapegoat, I'm to blame

I'm the villain, the bastard without a face

Take a mirror, look inside

You may find a self made prophecy

Fucking up everything 

 

You turn your eyes to the sun

Blind to see the darkness you've released within me

With every fight a bit love in me dies

 

Dying slowly - lost in our obscurity

No hope in our hearts, no sign of serenity

 

Dying slowly - drowning in uncertainty

The air in our lungs, choked out by your insecurities

 

4 . Ten Years Ago

I gave up hope

And i gave up my everything

And I let go 

I've lost all control

 

And now I'm alone

 

This is not how I saw myself now

Ten years ago, ten years ago

This is not who I wanted to be

You're not who I thought I would see

Ten years ago, ten years ago

 

You gave me life

Then you let me down

You told me to fight

But wouldn't stand your ground

 

And now you're gone

 

This is not how I saw myself now 

Ten years ago, ten years ago

This is not who I wanted to be

You're not who I thought I would see

Ten years ago, ten years ago

 

And now I'm alone

I cannot go home

Please God save me

Please God save me

 

And now I'm alone

Nothing is the same

Well I've got to change

 

This is not how I saw myself now

Ten years ago, ten years ago

This is not who I wanted to be

You're not who I thought I would see

Ten years ago, ten years ago

 

And now I'm alone

I cannot go home

please God save me

6 . Less Than Broken

I cannot take this

Been pushed down so hard

These bonds are breaking

We're tearing apart

 

You tore my heart out

All that's left is nil

You wrecked my whole world

This void I cannot fill

 

You were the worst thing

To happen to me yet

I'm less than broken

in time I'll forget

 

You were the first one

To make me feel again

Lost all conviction

When I let your poison in

 

You were the worst thing

To happen to me yet

I'm less than broken

In time I'll forget

 

So lay your hands on me 

Just one last time

The life you stole from me

I'll take back, it's mine

 

You were the first one

To make me feel again

Deceived by design

You broke me for the last time

 

You were the worst thing

To happen to me yet

I'm less than broken

In time I'll forget

 

So lay your hands on me 

Just one last time

The life you stole from me

I'll take back, it's mine

 

You were the worst thing

To happen to me yet

I'm less than broken

In time I'll forget

 

So lay your hands on me 

Just one last time

The life you stole from me

I'll take back, it's mine

 

7 . Into Your World

Black boots, short skirts, I'm fantasizing

The way you walk, those hips you have are hypnotizing

I want a taste, I want to know just how you like it

I want to break the rules, it's getting hard to hide it

 

Take me, show me, control me, embrace me

Take me, consume me, enslave me

Pull me into your world

 

You lick your lips, these weak pipes are pressurizing 

You got me stuck, the drugs, i can't even fight it

Just a fix, the need is intensifying

I want to cross the line, I want to be inside you

 

Take me, show me, control me, embrace me

Take me, consume me, enslave me

Pull me into your world

 

One kiss, one good opportunity, 

To touch your skin, make you scream, set you free

I want to know just how deep the chemistry can be

When you climb on top of me

 

Take me, show me, control me, embrace me

Take me, consume me, enslave me

Pull me into your world

 

Take me, show me, control me, embrace me

Take me, consume me, enslave me

Pull me into your world

 

8 . December 10th

It started with the little things and all your subtle lines

And with one sudden turn my love began to die

 

And as I held on to one last hope

My hands and heart turn blue

My love ceased existence

And on this night I'll join you

 

It's torture, it's sacrifice, and we'll suffer this pain no more

The nightmare stops tonight and our love will wash ashore

 

Crimson clouds are resting now at the top of the lake

The emptiness in our eyes, a reflection of our fate

 

I will not apologize for the choice I made tonight

our time ends in water and it's such a lovely sight

 

It's torture, it's sacrifice, and we'll suffer this pain no more

The screaming stops tonight and our love will wash ashore

 

I cannot stand this

i will not live this way

I watched you fade to black

and I cannot bring you back

 

Never again will we suffer life above

This is my last gift, and I'll smile as God takes you

 

It's torture, it's sacrifice, and we'll suffer this pain no more

The nightmare stops tonight and our love will wash ashore

 

Our freedom, our paradise, we are your slaves no more

Our lives begin tonight and our bodies wash ashore

Our bodies wash ashore

Our lives begin tonight and our bodies wash ashore 

 

9 . March of The Innocent

Hiding inside the corners of hell

Waiting for the sun to rise 

Little demons are feeding themselves

Underneath our poisoned skies

 

This is not the way they planned

Now is the time to take a stand

 

This is the end of the establishment

This is the war of entitlement

This is the time of the penitent

This is the march of the innocent

 

Locked away in a holding cell

Waiting for their judgement day

The innocent are preparing themselves

For a price they shouldn't have to pay

 

This is not the promised land

It's the beginning of the end 

 

This is the end of the establishment

This is the war of entitlement

This is the time of the penitent

This is the march for the innocent

 

We have been held down for too long

We will rise, taking back our lives

 

Basking inside their pretentious worlds

Ignoring the screams outside

The monarchs they feast on the blood

Of the millions of peasants that die

 

The oppressed march hand in hand

This mob will bring the end

 

This is the end of the establishment

This is the war of entitlement

This is the time of the penitent

This is the march of the innocent

 

This is the end, this is the end

This is the end, this is the end

Fight hand in hand, fight hand in hand 

This is the march of the innocent

 

We have been held down for too long

We will die, fighting for what's right

 

10 . My Last Dying Wish

Words of blood, they must be spilled now

To drive these demons to hell

Constrict the sand in the hourglass

Refuse the price of my past

 

It's not my time, I never lived

Embrace the night, we cannot die

 

Reclaimed, this is my birthright

Forsake constraints of this life

Immortal souls that hide from your light

They call me back to their side

 

It's not my time, I never lived

Embrace the night, we cannot die

...we cannot die...

 

This is my last dying wish, this is my immortal gift

This is my last dying wish, this is my immortal gift

 

Armed with words and sounds from the dead

We bring this plague to your land

The infection begins to spread

The war cry sounds once again

 

It's not my time, I never lived

Embrace the night, we cannot die

...cannot die...

 

I sold my soul, I snuffed out my own fire

Inside a fever grows, it won't be denied any longer

 

This is my last dying wish, this is my immortal gift

This is my last dying wish, this is my immortal gift

 

Words of blood that have been spilled

Invoke this strength in ourselves

Shattered pieces of the hourglass

Left behind with the peace of our past

 

It's not my time, I never lived

Embrace the night, we cannot die

We cannot, we cannot, we cannot die

Evolution (2012)

1. EVOLUTION
Death came in shadow
Harvester of sorrow
She’s unconfined she’s uncontrolled
Walking through our hell hole

With every day we were deceived
We changed our ways so all believed
Clever is the devil
Twisted in vain
IT’S  INSANE

The ones that said no
They were the first to go
And now they’ll bear witness
To the end of days

Evolution
EMBRACE  THE  NIGHT
Evolution
WE’RE  ALL  BORN  TO  DIE

No rush we burn slow
But we will go  HELL  NO
And with knives, and pistols
We magnify the death toll
CLICK  CLICK  BOOM

The ones that said no
They were the first to go
And now they’ll bear witness
To the end of days

Evolution
EMBRACE  THE  NIGHT
Evolution
WE’RE  ALL  BORN  TO  DIE

And now the seas are rising
And all the trees are dying
Well it’s this poison we’re drinking
And yet we’re all so willing

(Solo – Michael Mackert)

Now that the world suffers without control
And every fuckin’ human being is enslaved
Mankind will now reap what we have sown
‘Til the end of days

[Evolution]
[EMBRACE  THE  NIGHT]
[Evolution]
[WE’RE  ALL  BORN  TO  DIE]

And though this world
Keeps turning
All of our faith is burning
And God himself has cried
WE  ARE  ALL  BORN  TO  DIE

2. QUEEN OF HELL
Come on

She’s a dance with darkness
She was bathed in pain
She was the voice heard when Cain killed Abel
And Hell is her domain

She’ll burn your money
She’ll drag you down
You can’t escape this ride
She’ll watch you drown

Bow down before her
Get on your knees
She is your sweet addiction
The Queen of Hell

What a seduction demon
With a Medusa gaze
She will break every man to pieces
Your soul won’t be saved

She’ll burn your money
She’ll drag you down
You can’t escape this ride
She’ll watch you drown

Bow down before her
Get on your knees
She is your sweet addiction
The Queen of Hell

(Solo – Daniel Lee)
(Solo – Michael Mackert)

Now you’ve tasted her poison
Now you’ll know I’m right
And when she screams so sweetly
She’ll take your life

You want her
She’ll take your
You want her
She’ll rape your

[She’s gonna take your life]
[She’s gonna rape your life]
[She is the Queen of Hell]

3. ANTHEM
Is this the end they ask
We’ve got their attention
They can’t silence the tension
As their walls fall down

This is the time
They won’t stop our voices
This is the end
As the world burns down

We’ll scream these words until the sun won’t shine
An endless rapture can’t take our sound and bring us down
We’ll be the ones to rise above and fight
So from the wreckage
STAND  FIGHT  SCREAM  THE  ANTHEM

Is this the end you ask
We will not be taken
They were sadly mistaken
As their world ends now

This is our time
Become one with your voices
This is the fight
As we scream this Anthem

We’ll scream these words until the sun won’t shine
An endless rapture can’t take our sound and bring us down
We’ll be the ones to rise above and fight
So from the wreckage
STAND  FIGHT  SCREAM  THE  ANTHEM  NOW

(Solo – Daniel Lee)

This is your time
Stand, rise up and be counted
This is their end
Tear their world apart

We’ll scream these words until the sun won’t shine
An endless rapture can’t take our sound and bring us down
We’ll be the ones to rise above and fight
So from the wreckage
STAND  FIGHT  SCREAM  THE  ANTHEM  NOW

STAND  FIGHT  SCREAM  THE  ANTHEM
STAND  FIGHT  SCREAM  THE  ANTHEM
STAND  FIGHT  SCREAM  THE  ANTHEM
STAND  FIGHT  AND  SCREAM  THE  ANTHEM  NOW
STAND  FIGHT  AND  SCREAM  THE  ANTHEM

4. DRAWN TOGETHER
Well I’ll take your body to another level
Now the devil is in our eyes
Well your nerve is shot and words they fall
But you got to give it a try

Well I see you
Do you see me
We were so drawn together

Your reputation says you’re quick to tell a lie
No hesitation no reservations in the night
My expectation is you hide another side
Your mind is racin’ but you gotta give it up gotta give me a try

Restraint’s a challenge
With temptation in our eyes
But when you scream my name in ecstasy
You’ll see the love that was my lie

Well I see you
Do you see me
We were so drawn together

Your reputation says you’re quick to tell a lie
No hesitation no reservations in the night
My expectation is you hide another side
Your mind is racin’ but you gotta give it up gotta give me a try

I see in you
All the lust in me
We’ll fulfill our fantasy
But I’m cold enough
To forget your face
Cause that’s all you mean to me

(Solo – Michael Mackert)

Well the lonely sun it rises on
A solitary hotel room hell
And you’re wondering where the angel went
As you smile to yourself

Well I see you
Do you see me
We were so drawn together

Your reputation says you’re quick to tell a lie
No hesitation no reservations in the night
My expectation is you hide another side
Your mind is racin’ but you gotta give it up gotta give me a try

Your reputation says you’re quick to tell a lie
No hesitation no reservations in the night
My expectation is you hide another side
Your mind is racin’ but you
[Gotta give it up gotta give it up]
Gotta give up gotta give me a try

5. BREAKDOWN
This is crazy this is lunacy
And I’m insane
I can’t believe I let this madness
Take me again

You see the pain in my eyes
I feel the fire inside
Well it’s screaming well it’s burning
It only grows stronger

I hear them scream to me

I’ve come to the end of the line
Taken control of my mind
It’s the end it’s my time
Time to breakdown

Will I feel better when I forfeit
What is left
No I won’t give into
All your monsters
I won’t choose death

I hear them scream to me

I’ve come to the end of the line
Taken control of my mind
It’s the end, it’s my time
Time to breakdown

You’ve gone too far
I’ve had enough
You’ve gone too far
This is my time

(Solo – Michael Mackert)

Black bagged toe tagged
You won’t take me
I won’t trade my soul for a cell
I’ll give you hell

I hear them scream to me

[I’ve come to the end of the line ]
[Taken control of my mind]
[It’s the end, it’s my time]
[Time to breakdown]

BREAKDOWN

6. CHILDREN OF DISEASE 
Your flesh is rotten
Color of lead
You are not living
But you’re far from dead

So be with me become my blood
We're gaining sight as we lose our touch
Be with me and take my hand and never fear this

WE  WILL  HOLD  THIS  VIOLENCE
‘TIL  THE  END  IN  SILENCE

We are the children of disease
We'll be contagious ‘til they set us free

They cannot fathom
That we exist
They'd rather end us
Than let us persist

So suffer silent but don't consent
Their hatred can't stop our ascent
Be with me and take my hand and never fear this

WE  WILL  HOLD  THIS  VIOLENCE
‘TIL  THE  END  IN  SILENCE

We are the children of disease
We'll be contagious ‘til they set us free

(Solo – Michael Mackert)

WE  WILL  HOLD  THIS  VIOLENCE
‘TIL  THE  END  IN  SILENCE

[We are the children of disease]
[We'll be contagious ‘til they set us free]

WE  ARE  THE  CHILDREN  OF  DISEASE

7. NIGHT AFTER NIGHT
I feel your pressure suffocating me
I fade with every smile you fake for me to see

You were my everything
I loved you so much that I could not breathe

Night after Night
No one can save my soul
They can't save my soul
Night After Night
No one can save your soul
THEY  CAN’T  SAVE  YOUR  SOUL

And now you’re gone you’re a memory
Got nothing left you’re just a reason for me to bleed

You were my everything
I hate you so much that I cannot breathe

Night after Night
No one can save my soul
They can't save my soul
Night After Night
No one can save your soul
THEY  CAN’T  SAVE  YOUR  SOUL

(Solo – Daniel Lee)

You took my everything
I hate you so much now you cannot breathe

Night after Night
No one can save my soul
They can't save my soul
Night After Night
No one can save your soul
THEY  CAN’T  SAVE  YOUR  SOUL

Well I loved you
And you left me
Well I hate you
STOP  BREATHING

8. DREAMSCAPE

Well it’s just in time
My mind’s not mine
With all this poison I’ve been fed
My eyes roll back into my aching head

Well this place is endless winter
My hell, I can’t be saved
Ever onward
I pray for a shallow grave

I can’t control, don’t let me go
I can’t control, this madness
I can’t control, don’t let me go
Into Dreamscape

I feel the needle tear into my veins
I freeze in blinding pain
Faster than my lips can
Speak God’s name

Well I know that this
Consumes me
I fiend with every thought
Well I tried to stop
But I’d kill for a single drop
Well

I can’t control, don’t let me go
I can’t control, this madness
I can’t control, don’t let me go
Into Dreamscape

THIS  IS  MY  DREAMSCAPE
THIS  IS  MY  HELL
THIS  IS  MY  DREAMSCAPE
THIS  IS  MY  HELL

(Solo – Daniel Lee)

This endless whiteness
My empty soul
No entrance
No exit
No escape
No control

I can’t, I can’t, I can’t, control
(THIS  IS  MY  DREAMSCAPE)

Don’t let, don’t let, don’t let, me go
(THIS  IS  MY  HELL)

I can’t, I can’t, I can’t, control
(THIS  IS  MY  DREAMSCAPE)

Don’t let me, don’t let me go
(THIS  IS  MY  HELL)

9. PENETRATE YOUR MIND
I’m coming through your windows and entering your mind
I’m finding out what scares you and I’m reaching deep inside

Well I’m grabbing hold of nightmares and I’m tossing out your dreams
I’m gathering your brain cells and I’m tearing at the seams

I know what scares you
I know what makes you SCREAM
I know what scares you
Sadistic little dream

I’m taking your worst nightmares and I’m bringing them to life
I’m stealing up your children and I’m sleeping with your wife

Well I’m tearing out your eyeballs and I’m ripping off your face
I’m gathering your organs nothing goes to waste

I know what scares you
I know what makes you SCREAM
I know what scares you
Sadistic little dream

Somebody help
Somebody please
Wake me from this nightmare
Somebody please

Everything you run from your feet are moving slow
Well I’m the dreaded monster well I’m your greatest foe

Well I ripped off your skin and I threw it to the ground
Before I face-fucked your girlfriend and she didn’t make a sound

I know what scares you
I know what makes you SCREAM
I know what scares you
Sadistic little dream

Do I scare you
Or do I scare you
Do I scare you
You better be fuckin’ afraid

10. THE END OF THE WEAK
They knew all along
That the day would come
When our angels would betray
And the Devil said

He’d come for you in time
He will come for you
And he will take your life

STAND  BY  The end of my sanity
RISE  UP  From the ashes
THIS  IS  The end of the weak
DENY  Their oppression
THIS  IS  Our last chance
THIS  IS  THE  END  OF  THE  WEAK

Join with us unite
Rise above and fight
Forget fears and brighter days
And yesterday

We come for you in time
We will come for you
And we will take your life

STAND  BY  The end of my sanity
RISE  UP  From the ashes
THIS  IS  The end of the weak
DENY  Their oppression
THIS  IS  Our last chance
THIS  IS  THE  END  OF  THE  WEAK

Nobody said this would be easy
There’s nothing left
Nobody said we would not die

(Solo – Daniel Lee)

STAND  BY  The end of my sanity
RISE  UP  From the ashes
THIS  IS  The end of the weak
DENY  Their oppression
THIS  IS  Our last chance
THIS  IS  THE  END  OF  THE  WEAK

1. PENETRATE YOUR MIND


Crawling through your window, and entering your mind
I’m finding out what scares you, and I’m reaching deep inside

I’m grabbing hold of nightmares, and I’m tossing out your dreams
I’m gathering your brain cells, and I’m tearing at the seams

I know what scares you
I know what makes you scream
I know what scares you
Sadistic little dream

I’m taking your worst nightmares, and I’m bringing them to life
I’m stealing your children, and I’m sleeping with your wife

I’m tearing out your eyeballs, and I’m ripping off your face
I’m gathering your organs, nothing goes to waste

I know what scares you
I know what makes you scream
I know what scares you
Sadistic little dream

Somebody help me, somebody please
Wake me from this nightmare, somebody please

I need you to hear, me, please, I’m trying not to care
I’m so scared of dying, someone help me, please

Everything you run from, your feet are moving slow
I’m the dreaded monster, I’m your greatest foe

Cause I peeled off your pale skin, and I threw it to the ground
Before I skull-fucked your girlfriend, and she didn’t make a sound

I know what scares you
I know what makes you scream
I know what scares you
Sadistic little dream

You don’t scare me, you don’t scare me
I’m not afraid you


2. DEATH IN THE HOLLOW

Demons of night, from hell they came, dwelling deep in the hills
Living with subconscious terror, and evil desires to kill

The people lay asleep in peace, awaiting the light of tomorrow
Unaware of evil roaming free, the mist gave wake to the hollow

But no locked doors would keep them safe
None were spared, they all were slain
A place they called a home until
Death came to the hollow

Driven by unending hunger, the shadows evil stayed
Sunset fell, gave birth to hell, it was dark when they came

Swift, stealth immortals hunt down the weak, screams released in the night
Unseen evil cast ancient shadows, their blood ran black in the moonlight

No locked doors would keep them safe
None were spared, they all were slain
A place they called a home until
Death came to the hollow

(Solo - Daniel Lee)

They ran through the night with murderous cries, and no last dying breaths
A field of bodies left to rot, the woods were stained with death

Swift, stealth immortals hunt down the weak, screams released in the night
Unseen evil cast ancient shadows, their blood ran black in the moonlight

No locked doors would keep them safe
None were spared, they all were slain
A place they called a home until
Death came to the hollow

Stay away, and don’t look back
The ones who did regret the fact
Few escaped and lived to tell
When death came to the hollow


3. BURIED ALIVE

Buried deep inside, I’m fighting to survive
In my own dying breath, is anticipating death

Decompose, a corpse to feed the crows
Out of sight, out of mind
They buried me, buried me
They buried me alive

Organs in a jar, spread around me far
Servants made of stone, they surround my golden throne

A ship of wood to sail, to the gods of death I hail
My body dead and dried, I’ll wait for you inside

Decompose, a corpse to feed the crows
Out of sight, out of mind, out of mind
They buried me, buried me
They buried me alive

(Solo - Michael Mackert)

Buried deep inside, I’m fighting to survive
In my own dying breath, I’m anticipating death

In my own blood they kept, thought tears of it, I wept
Hooks inside my face, eternity’s embrace

Decompose, a corpse to feed the crows
Out of sight, out of mind
They buried me, buried me
They buried me alive

I can’t believe you buried me, alive
Won’t someone come and set me free? Buried me


4. INTO THE UNKNOWN

Sacrifice your blood pact
To open wide the gate
Entering a new world
And riding out your fate

Don’t ask for mercy
Cause you’re only one, you’re only one
And don’t ask me to save you
Your only chance is to run

Cause I’m killing all I conquer
And I conquer all I see
Stand before your master
And hear my new decree

Don’t ask for mercy
Cause you’re only one, you’re only one
And don’t ask me to save you
Your only chance is to run

(Solo - Michael Mackert)

They have killed so many
And their faces were so blurred
Empty souls untethered
Our voices gone unheard

Don’t ask for mercy
Cause you’re only one, you’re only one
And don’t ask me to save you
Your only chance is to run

Don’t ask for mercy
Cause you’re only one, you’re only one
And don’t ask me to save you
Your only chance is to run
