Track Name: Unsudden Death
We shoulda seen it coming, how we should have known
But we were too far gone, possessed with ghosts from long ago
Wearing the wartime colors brighter than the sun
To defend an earth covered in rot this battle must be won
For all our stoic speeches
Of stiffened backs and calls to fight
We never thought to look back
To see our future left behind

The bowstrings drawn, arrows alight
We're sinking deeper as they streak across the sky
Returning home to nothing left
And when it ended we were somehow still surprised
Unsudden death

Heels digging deeper into lifeless, broken ground
Defied the vultures and the rabid baying of the hounds
No omen was enough to satisfy our lust
We betrayed all other gods except the ones that promised blood
For all our great ambitions
For all the songs we thought they'd sing
To call to mind our vict'ry
We never would win anything

The bowstrings drawn, arrows alight
We're sinking deeper as they streak across the sky
Returning home to nothing left
And when it ended we were somehow still surprised
Unsudden death

Where'd it all go wrong (we'll cry in pain)
We could have stopped this all along (but we fought in vain)
But like hell we'll give up ground

For all our stoic speeches
Of stiffened backs and calls to fight
We never thought to look back
To see our future left behind

And when we tell our children
We'll say the other army fled
But what we leave our children
A slow and agonizing unsudden death
Track Name: Half Like You
What makes me so different from them?
I'm half of what you hate
And half of what you tolerate

What makes you so sure I'm not the
savage you insist my father was
Before your kind forced him away

Just another day of no belonging
Just another night of fear and longing
For a single day without the feeling that I'm gonna break

Half my life
I live under suspicion
Victim of tunnel vision
I don't know what else I have to prove

Half my life
You say I'm only faking
You say I'm beyond saving
But remember I'm half like you

If I'm the one who's told to walk away
And keep a calmer head
Why can't you ever do the same?

I come here wielding neither axe or sword
But if my words are cutting deep
Then it's not me who is to blame

Half human but twice the man
Try to keep calm but I don't know if I can
Should it be up to me to prove them wrong
But I don't know why I even try to belong

It's useless to show what I'm not
If I barely know what I am
It's hard to feel like I'll never be home
When this city is all I have

I'll never be what you think I should be
But I'm not what you think I am
I can be what you think if you want me to be
But you're not gonna like it
You're not gonna like it
Track Name: BERSK!!!
When everything I loved is fallen to the ground
When everything I had is turned to dust and memory
My heart has never slowed a beat e'er since that day
I come for vengeance and I won't be turned away

My eyes are red but they have never seen so clear

I feel this rage
It grabs ahold of me
I'll stop at nothing
Just to get back what I lost
A new kind of hate
It rages endlessly
I'll stop at nothing
Just to get back what I lost

Now everything you know is dust and disarray
Now everything you worked for lies demolished at my feet
Do you regret taking my life away from me
I have no sympathy for your apologies
