Track Name: Sacrifice
The frantic cries of innocence lost to a repressed, lustful beast
Your cries of shame fall on deaf ears
Blood stained reputations demand a sacrifice
Beg for forgiveness
One young girl’s life for our honour
Forced into acceptance
Now you've found your way out of this union,
Swallowed down your escape
Track Name: Fiend
Awakened by blood curdling screams of pain
Raced to discover the unthinkable
The fiend has returned with evil intentions

The falling rain will muffle the sound
My mind is focused on the task at hand
Only a few short hours to await my prey
This instrument breaks her silence

Driving this knife into her throat
Spilling gore onto this hardwood canvas
Track Name: Inferno
Load the bodies
Set them ablaze

When desperation calls on these actions
When families crumble in the minds eye
The only way to save us is to destroy it all

An explosion of sound mixed in these emotions
The scream from this apparatus still rings in my ears
This urge, so simple to rationalize

If cowards die many times before their death, then let this be the first
