Track Name: A Vision In Red
I close my eyes
All I see is red
Soaked in a cold sweat
Dying in my own bed
Sickness may strike
Quick as the snake
But the venom works slow
Until finally your spirit breaks

Turn your back on me
And I will watch you go
Get out of my way
I cannot take it anymore

Every day I live through the pain (the pain)
And every sunset my hatred grows for you
I was mistaken, this is not what I thought it would be
All you are is dead to me

I open my eyes
All I see is black
The tragedy has taken sight
Left blind to the attack
Why do they pretend to care
Kind words fade
Gentle touch fails
I’m just simply not there

As I live out my days
I will remember these words
We have no end to fear
Our vision forever blurred

Every day I live through the pain (the pain)
And every sunset my hatred grows for you
I was mistaken, this is not what I thought it would be
All you are is dead to me

This world did not spare me
And I will not spare you

Solo: Meehan

This world did not spare me
And I will not spare you

Solo: Michaud

Every day I live through the pain
And every sunset my hatred grows for you
I was mistaken, this is not what I thought it would be
All you are is dead to me

Every day I live through the pain (the pain)
And every sunset my hatred grows for you
I was mistaken, this is not what I thought it would be
All you are is dead to me

A vision in red
Track Name: Pessimist's Tongue
I will teach you the language of the negative
Convert you from your hollow faith
Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
A life consumed in silent sorrow

I am the one that rips down your high hopes, leaving them in the dust
I am the one that sewed the mouth of your idol shut
Mental pain departs as I pull this blade across my flesh
This is how I live with myself, every day until my death

Heartbeats of all you love soon cease

I will teach you the language of the negative
Convert you from your hollow faith
Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
A life consumed in silent sorrow

Negative perceptions spawned from lack of trust
Words elude, reason subdued, I lose myself in hopeless lust
My sight blurs as I press this gun against my head
My body goes numb, forgetting all the words she said

Heartbeats of all you love soon cease
From my hand, the destroyer of peace
They have become one with the fallen
They are mine from this day forth

I will teach you the language of the negative
Convert you from your hollow faith
Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
A life consumed in silent sorrow

Solo: Meehan | Solo: Michaud

Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
Bow before me, the saints will be hung
Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
Look inside me, the darkness has won

Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
Bow before me, the saints will be hung
Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
Look inside me, the darkness has won

Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
Bow before me, the saints will be hung
Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
Look inside me, the darkness has won
Track Name: Razors & Rust
Words come to life in the light of the situation
The process of becoming heartless
A lesson taught over many years
I’ve spent alone and broken, drowning in my tears
In pain and beyond weak
The only state you can bear to look at me
Standing above this, holding love and sanity
You took it all away

Sometimes it’s hard to believe (believe)
That I’m still not dreaming
Your selfish hate, my reality
It’s all turned to razors and rust

I’ve become a slave to the razor
My veins turn the colors of rust
The blood doesn’t seem to phase her
These flowing rivers of self disgust

I’ve become a slave to the razor
My veins turn the colors of rust
The scars will never erase her
I must learn to rebuild life

Solo: Michaud

We stand here at impassible crossroads
Never knowing which path to follow
Don’t trust a soul in the sea of liars and fakes
Stop asking questions and accept the hate
You make breathing feel like a mistake
One day you too will watch your sanity break
No God will ever answer your prayers
What makes you think the world even cares

Sometimes it’s hard to believe (believe)
That I’m still not dreaming
Your selfish hate, my reality
It’s all turned to razors and rust

I’ve become a slave to the razor
My veins turn the colors of rust
The blood doesn’t seem to phase her
These flowing rivers of self disgust

I’ve become a slave to the razor
My veins turn the colors of rust
The scars will never erase her
I must learn to rebuild life

Razors and rust
Razors and rust
Razors and rust
Razors and rust

Solo: Meehan

I’ve become a slave to the razor
My veins turn the colors of rust
The blood doesn’t seem to phase her
These flowing rivers of self disgust

I’ve become a slave to the razor
My veins turn the colors of rust
The scars will never erase her
I must learn to rebuild life

I’ve become a slave to the razor
My veins turn the colors of rust
The blood doesn’t seem to phase her
These flowing rivers of self disgust

I’ve become a slave to the razor
My veins turn the colors of rust
The scars will never erase her
I must learn to rebuild life

Razors and rust
Track Name: The Reek Of Defeat
Only at the end of our time
Will we determine that we’re destined to die alone
Cold and tired, no way to avoid the decline
Into a world of failure and regret

Worn from reaching when nothing is there
Looking into fate’s eyes, I’m met with an empty stare
And now that all the things I live for are gone
It’s hard to find a reason to live on

This life is not a giving one
My strength has been reduced to none
Defeated, depleted, all trace of hope retreated
Condemned to never return

I need to find a place to bury all of my dreams
Because they’re dead and rotting
And I just can’t seem to escape this potent reek
The reek of defeat

Solo: Michaud

Bleeding hands attempt to heal broken hearts
But they are only tearing us apart
Stumbling to pick up shattered pieces life
My inner suffering is sharp as the knife

This life is such a shameful one
Lost souls under a dying sun
I’m hated, frustrated, conflicts that I’ve created
Strangled by lies and deceit

I need to find a place to bury all of my dreams
Because they’re dead and rotting
And I just can’t seem to escape this potent reek
The reek of defeat

I can’t escape the reek of defeat

Solo: Meehan

I need to find a place to bury all of my dreams
Because they’re dead and rotting
And I just can’t seem to escape this potent reek
The reek of defeat
