Track Name: Premonitions
Searching for what I need
Fulfill the void inside
Nights alone with restless sleep
This feeling amplifies

Constant emotion in my mind
I recognize you're out there

Craving the warm embrace
I feel you in my dreams
Every day I wake to find
You're nowhere to be seen

Constant emotion in my mind
I recognize you're out there

These desires control me

It's not easy
But I still have hope
That you will one day find me

But for now I
Do this on my own
And I will see you in a dream
Track Name: Wicked Satisfaction
I told ya it was this way from the start
When I saw you looking at me across that bar
You smiled at me and asked your friend my name
She said "My friend, his night is yours to take"

You were all over me
It was so dark I could barely see
Your crimson lips, you twist your hips
You tear at me with your fierce grip

I'm feeling like I can't stop
I need you right now all the way
So please come now
I can't stand it, all I need is
Wicked Satisfaction

I can't escape this pull I've spiraled in
You entangle me I'm lost within your skin

Every move I feel you make
Is one more thing that I can't take
The love I feel, I crave your taste
It's one more thought I can't erase

I'm feeling like I can't stop
I need you right now all the way
So please come now
I can't stand it, all I need is
Wicked Satisfaction
Track Name: Duality
I give my all to you
Do I really need you
Am I feeling this way because
You were my companion
Before I was in dismay
Yes I was so abandoned

I already feel you slipping away
But I'm powerless to deny
Immobilized
Anesthetized
Nothing seems to satisfy

Chaos is running through
Slaughtering my thoughts of you
The confusion in my head
Has split me down the middle
I just need a muse to come
And break me from this riddle

I already feel you slipping away
But I'm powerless to deny
Immobilized
Anesthetized
Nothing seems to satisfy
Track Name: Unleash The Beast
I just can't resist this chance
Remove you from my mind
The confines of my existence
Mundane and crystallized

The time is now, I see my break
Release me from this life
I crack the can, I taste that bliss
Escape into this night

Overindulging in this jubilee
This is where I need to be
Though I know it's treason
I'm incapable of reason
As I unleash the beast within

Back into reality
Enthralled by what I see
Surrounded by strangers baring debauchery
How could something be so wrong
But feel so damn right
I crack the can, I taste that bliss
Return into this night

Overindulging in this jubilee
This is where I need to be
Though I know it's treason
I'm incapable of reason
As I unleash the beast within
Track Name: Devil Woman
I think she's got me going
I'm under her control
Giving into temptation
Let's see how this unfolds

I fall from grace
My conscience escapes
Darkness takes me from myself
I cannot hide

This surge of emotion I can't describe
Makes me believe "she's a devil woman"
The way she twists my beliefs inside
Makes me believe "she's a devil woman"

She haunts my every moment
I beckon to her call
There's no one else who matters
I can't break through this wall

My mind is on her
My vision is blurred
I'm addicted to the thought
Of losing control

This surge of emotion I can't describe
Makes me believe "she's a devil woman"
The way she twists my beliefs inside
Makes me believe "she's a devil woman"
Track Name: Relinquish the Philistine (The Story Of Delilah)
Betrayed by the vixen
Thrown down and wrapped in chains
Broke down and smited
Torn up and drove insane

My thoughts were twisted
Bound up they seemed so nice
It's time to face the truth
Black devil rued my life

Surrogate of my demise

She'll never change
They're all the same
She's stuck in her own game
Deceived and strained
No more to gain
Vacate this septic vein

Lustful and blinded
Staggered and mesmerized
Unmatched persuasion
She left me magnetized
You thought you had me
Trapped in your cruel device
You'll beg forgiveness
You'll beg for mercy twice

Author of my erratum

She'll never change
They're all the same
She's stuck in her own game
Deceived and strained
No more to gain
Vacate this septic vein
Track Name: The Fall
I just can't believe that
You burned me like a fire
And you twisted my desire
Concealing everything you felt inside
Revealing what you've done
When the time was right

Taking the easy way out
Conceited and centered on yourself

I don't need you (x4)

Bring to an end
Refrain from this affair, and fall away
Escaping you
Uproot and disappear, and fall away

Now I am glad that you are gone
And now I feel it's time I must move on
Complexity in what my heart tells me to do
Simplicity for me that I don't need you

I don't need you (x4)

Bring to an end
Refrain from this affair, and fall away
Escaping you
Uproot and disappear, and fall away
Track Name: Believe
Girl, you're the only one that I need
Why was I so blind to see
Girl, you're the only one for me
You're touch would bring relief
Oh, I beg and plead
Tell me you'll forgive me
Cuz' I can't stop thinking 'bout
Everything we had was real
And I shattered it all for not

I still believe, down on my knees
I still believe, you're the one for me

What I did to you was wrong
A misstep I won't repeat
But with her I don't belong
She was full of deceit
Oh, just believe
I was enticed by a temptress
I was caught inside her vile haze
Now I am trapped in this prison
To live alone my final days

I still believe, down on my knees
I still believe, you're the one for me

Immobilized, anesthetized
You're the one that satisfies
You're the one that satisfies

I still believe, down on my knees
I still believe, you're the one for me
Track Name: The World Unseen
I don't know how
We have traveled this far
But we've ended here apart
I've done my fair share
Of bringing you down
But I've left it all behind

Don't shut me out
Don't let me down
I need to know now
Time to figure out
Clear all of your doubt
I need to know now

My mind wanders
In and out of this place
Imagine where we'd be
If you were with me
As it was before
Come back through my door

Don't shut me out
Don't let me down
I need to know now
Time to figure out
Clear all of your doubt
I need to know now

Far beyond my dreams
You have taken me
You have taken me

Far beyond my dreams
You have taken me
To a world unseen
Track Name: Unbreakable
Now the pieces have fallen
And the cards have been played
I have broken through my shallow masquerade
Now I've come full circle
And with you I will stay
But this feeling was a heavy price to pay

Through troubled times, I feel alive
I've come so far to know what's right
With this I rise, no more disguise
I have become unbreakable

Now that you're with me
I'm not so empty
The feelings are real this time around
The journey beginning
Old nightmare has faded
I'll never leave this life again

I can feel your body
Passion consumes me
Unleashing all our primal tendencies
Well we're back in the game now
There's no more disdain
I can feel my devil coursing through my veins

Through troubled times, I feel alive
I've come so far to know what's right
With this I rise, no more disguise
I have become unbreakable

Now that you're with me
I'm not so empty
The feelings are real this time around
The journey beginning
Old nightmare has faded
I'll never leave this life again

Unbreakable
