Track Name: Exordium
Exordium

Tossing and turning as I watch her sleep

Unknown anxieties contradicting the process of my conscience

This house is my temple, this house is my confine

Thoughts burning at its walls, stripped of what is mine

Stripped of what is mine

Forcing my opposite intensions to be made

Overwhelming thoughts consume

My urge to kill will soon fucking reign its doom

Dragging me down the hall, smashing my head into the walls

Why do I feel no shame?

Why do I feel no shame?

The space beside becomes empty

The soft moonlit sheets devoid of a body

Panic grips, demented thought slips

Replaced by a sick curiosity

Soft lights shining bright upon me

Will I ever live this down?

Reality staring blank at me

A final nail in a broken home

My body trembles without a sound

Without a fucking sound

Without a sound

Lines traced upon soft flesh, caressed by the butcher’s blade

Face ripped open like the jaws of a bear trap

Why do I feel no shame?

Why do I feel no shame?

Exalt my discovery, crucify my past

Mixed signals being received

Clutching the remains of my life

Disposing of my beloved, I flee the scene

I flee the scene

Clutching the remains of my life

I flee the scene

Disposing of my beloved

I feel the scene

Soft lights shining bright upon me

Will I ever live this down?

Reality staring blank at me, a final nail in a broken home

My body trembles a sound

Without a fucking sound

My body trembles without a sound
Track Name: Welcome To The Woodlands
Here we are giving ourselves headaches

Too much time to waste in this city

So let’s make this decision now

Let’s make this decision right now

Staying here will only cause pain for our miserable lives

It is time for a change in this world for us

It is time for our destiny to be fulfilled

Staying here will only cause pain for our miserable lives

It is time for a change in this world for us

It is time for our destiny to be fulfilled

Prepare, prepare for the best and not the worst

Wherever we end up

So keep your head up high

Keep your head up high until this shit is all over now

I promise it will end

This place has no future for us

Destiny awaits our arrival

Destiny awaits our arrival

This is our new home

Wipe all the tears off your face and smile

This is our new home

Wipe all the tears off your face and smile

There is no shame in leaving

We have a new lease of life

A chance to build hopes and dreams

A chance to erase the mind of horrible, un-forgetful thoughts

We’ve reached our destination

Our new home

Welcome to the woodlands

Where the air is so fucking cold and the sky is pale

So welcome to the woodlands

Where all of our methods begin to fucking fail

Welcome to the woodlands

Where all of our methods begin to fail

Begin to fail

Where all of our methods begin to fail

Begin to fail

Our past life had no future for us

Woodlands has embraced our entrance

Woodlands has embraced our entrance

Our entrance

No need for whining

Give the woodlands a chance and smile

No need for crying

Give the woodlands a chance and smile

This is our new home

Wipe all the tears from your face and smile
Track Name: Displeasure (Ft Hayley Dridan)
Pray for the one who ran and took everything from my life

When he’s exposed his face will shine in front of pain of agony

Settle in your new room

Don’t say a word

Please get some fucking sleep

Because tomorrows a new day

And we will never speak of our past memories

We’re here to get better

Well you are but I am fine

What did you just say?

How could you betray me like that?

Don’t you fucking dare…

Father, what I just said wasn’t a lie

I know it sounds weird but trust me

You must believe every word that is coming out of my mouth

Father, what I just said wasn’t a lie

I know it sounds weird but trust me

You must believe every word that is coming out of my mouth

Don’t you talk to me like that

I’m not taking in anything you said

You need to believe every word that is coming out of my mouth

I wake up and it’s 4 o’clock in the AM

So I go downstairs into the kitchen

I walk around and I see sharpened tools on the table

I can’t believe this, who set this shit up?

No one is here but me and my daughter is asleep in her bed

She wouldn’t do anything like that

Then why the hell is there is there a torture chamber set up in my house?

This makes no sense to me at all

Then why the hell is there is there a torture chamber set up in my house?

This makes no sense to me at all

But we will still breed ourselves into captivity

We will not cut the cord

We will still breed ourselves into captivity

We will not cut the cord on this lifestyle we are living

On this lifestyle we are living

I’m gonna knock somebody out if I don’t find an answer to this event that has just occurred

Give me fucking answers

I’ve just asked a question

And I would very much appreciate it if it was addressed

Settle in your new room

Don’t say a word please get some fucking sleep

Because tomorrows a new day

And we will never speak of our past memories

Shut up! Do not say anything more

Just shut your eyes and sleep

Shut up! Do not say anything more

Just shut your eyes and sleep

Settle in your new room

Don’t say a word please get some fucking sleep

Because tomorrows a new day

And we will never speak of our past memories

Of our past memories

Just tell me what the hell is happening
Track Name: ...Awake Again
4 AM once again, no alarm is set, 4AM again

Who wakes up like this every night?

Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again

I feel a burning sensation running down one side of my body

As the other sensation runs cold

I am weak, I am strong

This density is intense and it doesn’t make sense

Because I’ve done nothing wrong

What was that noise?

What was that bang?

What was that sound?

What was that motherfucking shake?

I can’t stand another day in this haunted, hypocritical place

I rush up out of my bed

And run as quickly as I can to my little angel’s bedroom

I fail to open the engaged door

My daughter has never locked her door once in her life

But why now?

Let me in, we have to leave

You’ve given me no choice but to break the door down

I crash my way through the door

And she’s nowhere to be seen

Where did that bitch go?

She runs out underneath her bed

Downstairs to the front door screaming

Let me out!

As I chase her down the stairs I question her

What’s wrong?

It’s me?

Let me out!

After she spoke the truth

My frozen sensation started to melt down

And the burning sensation began to ignite up

And take over my innocent self

You better shut up

Keep quiet and listen to me

If you fail to do so

I will grab you and pull you by the hair and introduce you to my torture chamber of hunger needs and fetish feeds

You weak little child

Are you fucking scared?

You weak little child

Are you gonna cry?

Oh my god!

What an adrenaline rush

My head is turned backwards

Around, inside out, upside down

I can’t believe the switch

This could not have made me more broken than ever

But I could not be happier that I have two powers to capture

This little innocent helpless power that stands in my way

To control my fate

You screwed everything up

How could you rip apart our family into pieces and have no remorse for your actions?

I will not be your next victim

I did nothing wrong for myself

This was my plan from the start

I am who I am

Daddy’s gone, and he’s not coming back

1, 2, 3, 4, start your running

Start your running

He’s gone forever now

No I will not hold back

No I will not hold back

I am who I am

I am who I am
Track Name: The Ambivalent (Ft Harley McIntosh)
There she goes outside my house

Like in my dreams

Like in her nightmares

I understand why she’s running away from me

Because if I had her next to me

I would hold her in the palm of my hand

And only I could imagine the things I would do if only I could claim her and do as I wish

I chase her down the road, down the streets

Tracing her tracks, tracing her footprints into the woodlands

If I could see anything more than her shadows passing the trees then I would be in control of this situation

I just saw her jump over the lake

And if I’m correct if she tends to slip and drown into the lake

Then everything will be complete

Be complete

Don’t turn around, he’s right behind you

And he will take everything that he’s ever wanted

He’s getting closer and closer to feed on his daughters death

He will find you

And he will take everything that he’s come to accomplish

So I ask that you must run faster and faster

Pray for your life

Pray for your life

Pray for your life

Please don’t take me away

There’s only one survivor left in my family

And I will not obey your words, anymore

As I witness her crawling behind that tree

I can see her but she can’t see me

As my hands are reaching closer I can grab her feet

And now I shall make her my abomination

Dragging her face across the filthy forest floors

Pulling her by the leg into the middle of the road

I smash her in the nose with her fingers on the door

And throw her up onto the table

I will retrace the bloodlines of this family

Across your soft flesh

Memories breed memories

I can’t wait to see your face ripped and slashed

Your mouth will be torn like the jaws of a bear trap

This doesn’t have to be as difficult as you are making it

Open your eyes

Look directly at me

And tell me what you see

Everything that is so regretful!

Please don’t take me away

There’s only one survivor left in my family

And I will not obey your words, anymore

I wish this would all just be

An illusion of what’s gonna happen to him

I’m afraid of my killer instincts

But I need to survive and it runs in my family

Suddenly, clenched in my hand

A tool of my father’s trade

Scalpel in hand, I divide his face

Parting his skin until he is erased

I open the door and leave this life behind

In ambivalence

In ambivalence

I have now finished what he started
