A panic craze brings disarray Lost inside our minds Erratic ways mutate cliches And break the ties that bind Method to the madness, Stories untold Buried in the darkness, As truths unfold No motive, No reason, We seek to find Method to the madness, Broken inside Authorities play vile schemes Withholding all control Oddities will break mainstreams Now take off your blindfolds Method to the madness, Stories untold Buried in the darkness, As truths unfold No motive, No reason, We seek to find Method to the madness, Broken inside Method to the madness, Stories untold Buried in the darkness, As truths unfold No motive, No reason, We seek to find Method to the madness, Broken inside

Dreams of demons, Cradle divides Blackened tear bath, Child confides Lamb will follow bearing lament Heartless hollow, blinds ill intent You must live with what you’ve done Years of hurting innocent ones You must live with what you’ve done Justice served to immoral ones Evil whispers fool the child Darkened games wake the wild Flesh and blood denies the truth Child gone mad buries the proof Sorrow garden, Petals decay Thorns shred skin in barbaric ways Pawn of ruin frozen in time Bough broken fall nursery crime You must live with what you’ve done Years of hurting innocent ones You must live with what you’ve done Justice served to immoral ones….(repeat) You must reveal what you’ve done Years of hurting innocent ones You must reveal what you’ve done It’s your moral obligation You must live with what you’ve done Years of hurting innocent ones You must live with what you’ve done Judgement comes for everyone You must live with what you’ve done Years of hurting innocent ones You must live with what you’ve done Justice served to immoral ones..(repeat) You must reveal what you’ve done Years of hurting innocent ones You must reveal what you’ve done It’s your moral obligation

The world seems different These dark landscapes of shadows Are haunting every corner Hands cold as ice Silent screaming Is this your departure or a dream You are crossing over Lift the veil into the afterworld Say goodbye forever Lift the veil into the afterworld A child mourning The loss of kinship has shaken Your vacant heart Vaguely familiar, A bridge in time Your past and your future have collided You are frozen in your fears Trapped for years between two worlds You must let go You’re attached to what you’re holding How you're feeling between two worlds You must let go You are crossing over Lift the veil into the afterworld Say goodbye forever Lift the veil into the afterworld You are crossing over Lift the veil into the afterworld Say goodbye forever Lift the veil into the afterworld Lift the veil into the afterworld Lift the veil into the afterworld

Dark clouds above me, Nowhere to live free Black as night against empty skies Darkness hunting the angels' cries Thunder crashing, The lightening strikes Tragedy rains down on my life Wake me I'm dreaming, Drowning in my tears Will I bloom, Will I grow, This wilting rose Blind to see dark misery, This wilting rose All I feel is pain unreal With no light to guide me No one will ever know this wilting rose Dark storms surround me, Drawn to mystery Red as blood, masquerades white lies Halos haunting the shadows' mind Petals wither, A rose in fright Conjuration is crucified Wake me I'm dreaming, Tangled in my fears Will I bloom, Will I grow, This wilting rose Blind to see dark misery, This wilting rose All I feel is pain unreal With no light to guide me No one will ever know this wilting rose Will I bloom, Will I grow, This wilting rose Blind to see dark misery, This wilting rose All I feel is pain unreal With no light to guide me No one will ever know this wilting rose No one will ever know this wilting rose

Dark feelings grow, Tears a hole, Inside you Scared and alone, Feel the pain, Within you Locked in your prison of pain Your obsessions cursed in desire Locked in your prison of pain The rejection fuels your denial Gazing at your face of fears Smiling in the broken mirror See the ugly truth appear Smiling in the broken mirror The agony, You avoid, Enslaves you Release the pain, Find your strength, See the truth Don’t deny and don’t hold onto The broken pieces inside of you Don’t deny and don’t hold onto Embrace the shattered image of you Gazing at your face of fears Smiling in the broken mirror See the ugly truth appear Smiling in the broken mirror Look through the glass it’s now clear Smiling in the broken mirror See the beauty reappear Smiling in the broken mirror

We are the earthquake of fear Our greed is bringing another meltdown The waves are drawing near Bring us down this dismal ground Entwined in our own web Caught in narrow vision When will we awaken Endless abandon We need a new evolution Why are you running away We need a true resolution Why are you running away We are the whirlwind of rage Our genocide is our guilty pleasure Archaic day and age We entice the winds of vice Bound to our cruel nature Destroying the whole world When will we surrender Endless Abandon We need a new evolution Why are you running away We need a true resolution Why are you running away

She turned up missing Taken by wolves in sheep's skin Tricked her with mind games To consume her purity within They took her far away Locked and bound up in a dark dream Until the wolves grew hungry For angelic screams And to this day no one knows her story In the garden of sorrow A wolf hides in shadow Preying on innocence Secret Dissonance He planted seeds of darkness To cover up what they had done Buried beneath the cellar stairs The wolves she never did out run In a box of shadows A broken doll beyond repair Trapped in their rabid madness Living in a nightmare She whispers to me to tell her story In the garden of sorrow A wolf hides in shadow Preying on innocence Secret Dissonance They won't believe you They won't believe you In the garden of sorrow A wolf hides in shadow Preying on innocence Secret Dissonance In the garden of sorrow A wolf hides in shadow Preying on innocence Secret Dissonance Secret Dissonance Secret Dissonance
