Track Name: For A While
FOR A WHILE

This is how the story begins
You’ve probably heard this a thousand times before
This is my life
So what do I care

I’m lost I’m scared I’m all alone
These days get darker every day
What should I do
Where should I go

I’m struggling I’m screaming I’m fighting
But still I won’t learn to live
I’m wandering through these empty days
With no purpose to be

I’d give it my heart
I’d give it my soul
To be free of this pain

This soul wants to laugh
This soul needs to smile
At least for a while..

I’m struggling I’m screaming I’m fighting
But still I won’t fade away
I’m wandering through these empty days
With no purpose to be

I’d give it my heart
I’d give it my soul..

At last a glimpse of a brighter future
Now I know I’ll be okay
Track Name: Into Oblivion
INTO OBLIVION

I tried to make it possible for everyone of us
I tried to teach you everything and open up your hearts
But everything still seems to fade and turning into ash
I gave you possibilities and choices how to change
But still you seem to throw away everything I gave

I see the skies turn to fire but I see no angels
I hear the voices of the ones in need but hear no god

The savior is coming
To feed our hunger
And you foolish maggots
Believe in this

In the cradle of eden
The purpose has been forgotten
In the kingdom of heavens
The castle starts to rumble

Two million years of evolution and nothing’s learned
Supreme being now kneeling before all voices silence

Hell is breaking
Sapiens fading
Biblical punishment eradicating

After everything has come to an end
We finally understand
In this apocalyptic blink of an eye
We may feel regret

I see the skies turn to fire but I see no angels
I hear the voices of the ones in need but hear no god
Track Name: Genius Of Forsaken Centuries
I feel hate

I feel pain

I feel sorrow

(I don't wanna live)



I'm alone

In this blackness

Needing forgiveness

(Feeling so weak)



I stuffed skeletons in my closet for too long

Until the door gave up and set them free



Now they all dance around me

In this dark room making fun of me



Sometimes i wonder

Should join their dance or smash them up to pieces



Take me from this pain

I do not need more rain

Believe in forgiveness

That will set you free



Today is the day when it's redemption time

A walk on memory lane that ain't much fun



I'm standing as a viewer watching things go wrong

I haven't felt this helpless in a while



Now i see... Me.



All this guilt and shame of those things I've done

Did not seem to affect you at all



With your pure appearance and healing power

You slowly closed my wounds



You took me from this pain

No longer feel the rain

Believe in forgiveness

That has set you free



I feel love

I feel joy

I feel power

IT'S FINALLY… OVER...

Man Made Pain Lyrics

MAN MADE PAIN



Every day you wake up and you try again

Banging your head to the wall my friend

There’s no easier way to go through this life

Than to learn and keep your dreams and hopes alive



All these years you’ve been living in loneliness

You’re slowly creating your own darkness

Would you care if I said that you ain’t no fool

I’m standing here in the same storm as you



Take a breath and dive

I’ll promise you’ll feel alive

You’ll be to finally cry

Make darkness turn into light



Your soul is open wide

Now you finally see the skies

You no longer need your disguise

How good it feels to be… free



Did you know the sun rises up every day

Even if you don’t have any reasons to stay

Would you throw it all away even without a try

Leaving everybody asking the question why



Spread your wings and fly

I’ll promise you’ll feel alive

You’ll be to finally cry

Make darkness turn into light



Your soul is open wide

Now you finally see the skies

You no longer need your disguise

How good it feels to be… complete
Track Name: War
The rumble has begun there's no turning back since the damage is done

The only thing you can do is count the days to the doomsday that falls on everyone



I fear there's no way out for me

I eat my last meal at home and my only company



Is the photo of my ex-girlfriend and me

I'm ready to face my destiny



I can't believe it's real

I don't know how to take this

It's really happening

I take my new best friend that is



The enemy of everyone

Made to hurt and to make bleed

They said don't use it to kill

Try just to cause deadly wounds



I wake up to a noise and look around

I see one of my brothers has gone down



There's nothing to do, he takes his last breath

And slowly falls into final sleep



I take my friend and look outside

It's a hell on earth there's only destruction and agony



There's no real winners in this deadly game

Almost every man falls but no one will survive

The only thing that will always be alive is this war



All men will fight

No one survives

From this madness

Alive



All of the sudden all i hear is silence, am i bleeding, am i dead, did someone stop this violence,

for a second there i thought this is over now



Someone grabs me, shouts "Get up! We're under mortar fire! Are you hit? Take cover! Watch those snipers! We're the hell is our backup!? We're all fucked up now!"



I wake up screaming from this nightmare, in the middle of the night again. How can this past be haunting

in my mind, every single moment night and day?



Losing friends thinking there all against me. And two only things i can think that could help me,

are suicide or signing up to another war



Getting ready for a new battlefront, there's no time for nightmares anymore

Now i can see the beauty in this chess of death the peace of my mind is in war
