Track Name: identity (vocal version)
mountains and buildings scale the sky,
destroy, rebuild, destroy, then die
Track Name: blame (dance mix by cyanotic)
a world full of righteousness
and who are we to blame
when our god brings us glory
yet he also brings us shame

without him all is meaningless
yet is he left to blame
when he brings us order
and he also acts insane

vessels full of empty thoughts
so he is to decide
who shall such remain
and who shall such should die

he is here without us
he is waiting to decide
who he will let kill
and who will let die

he is here without us
he is growing to decay
evolving towards the future
and yet all of life betrayed

we blame
Track Name: penance (dance mix by interface)
there are no words when said that cause me to repent in terror.
no divine grace exists that claims man wretched and all fallen.
my hands are not stained with the blood of men
who deem themselves my holy saviour.

consequences of my birth do not demand repayment
thus surrender of my will is only mine to offer.
my will is not bound to atone through wars
declared by bloodlust of the martyrs.

the sacred texts which worship death claim life leads to perdition
but hallowed light which burns and blinds will not degrade its' value.
i will defend my right to be separate
from those who die and kill for heavens.

declarations of holy wars against those yet to be born
and the silent all condemned in the eyes of believers
result from fears and hopes of those yet to
attain their destine curse of penance.

no gods, no masters
Track Name: i die (dance mix by assemblage 23)
why is it that when you stand
your shadow's everywhere?
remnants of what you've done
is drifting in the air
all is not forgotten
your sins are not forgiven
i will still remember
what you have done
i die, i die for what you've done
i die, i die for what's become

why have they forgotten?
why have they forgiven?
all the pain you've caused us
and there was no war won
we will still be human
this will still be real
i will not forgive you
there is no appeal
i die, i die for what you've done
i die, i die for what's become
i die, and there was no war won
i die
Track Name: prayers (dance mix by icon of coil)
i have wished upon the stars
to the dead lights from far beyond
and all the heavens seem to shine
from what the gods have left behind

ours are the wounds created by sorrow
damned broken dreams left drifting through fears
and yet nothing to hear them they are all fading slowly
as soon as created they start to decay

there are cries of the people some grovel in need
vital for existence and with self sacrifice
these are lined with the prayers of a mobs selfish actions
their trivial greed are heard just as loud

and all sewn together
they all seem the same

why should a wish be deemed unimportant
what has the right to help just at will
not all the wounds when ignored begin repair
so have the gods left or does struggle amuse them?

and we go on, on and on and on

no reason to live is no reason to die
no reason to stop for a lack of protection
and no reason to quit for the void of a meaning
no reason to kill for the love of a god

the ethereal plains are now deafened and silent
no angels hear hopes, no wishes come true
will, strength, and effort does not entail success
sometimes the failure is simply guaranteed

we must go on, and on, and on, and on
Track Name: no paradise (dance mix by decoded feedback)
history was written on the sands of the windiest desert
only the surface is ever revealed
and each grain is as meaningless as all of the others
from the heights there are no depths to see

endless and ongoing the grains are all alike
no oasis
no salvation
no paradise
exists for us

deities may tread on us though they have no escape
drifting from one mirage just to find another
drinking valleys of the sand knowing it's not water
finding there's no haven from dune to dune

hateful and narcissistic the gods are all alike
no oasis
no salvation
no paradise
exists for us
Track Name: loving wrath (dance mix by code 64)
we're god given fodder
like sheep to the slaughter
created to be destroyed and damned

love as oppression
controlled by delusion
warning us of god's gift of flame

and where are the answers
we ask to the heavens
when good men deserve to burn and die

we see mothers they're mourning
the deaths of their children
brought down to hell for gods mighty plan

who will defend themselves against gods loving wrath?
who will stand up to the people that believe suffering is justified?
who are we to believe that god is good?

we lay waste to the people
outside of the steeple
for treading on our holy land

then hoping salvation
is granted by murder
when defending gods loving name

who will defend themselves against gods loving wrath?
who will stand up to the people that believe suffering is justified?
who are we to believe that god is good?
Track Name: spite (dance mix by beborn beton)
you are bound from ways of learning
you are betrayed by those who teach
and condemned with those before you
you are paralyzed by righteous beliefs
you are closed to comprehension
you were raised in hate's restriction
only guns compose your syntax
and your vengeance shadows reason

a shot rings out
the land becomes engulfed in flames
and every word of hope
now reverts to pain

you were born and raised with fury
and then fed by lies in context
yet no god determines infidel
there is no supreme justice
and no suicide to sainthood
you were ravaged by the times
and yet ruins will be your likelyhood
your ashes will burn by ashes
Track Name: when the world ends (vocal version)
when the world ends
and there is nothing left
there'll be no remorse
there'll be no regret

what we have is now
and all we've ever known
it's all we've ever had
not just what was wanted

no souls for sacrifice
no will to guide our own
no deity to wrong
no heaven to endure

no kingdom left to come
no world beyond our own
no higher being as judge
no lifetimes to explore
