Track Name: Empty
Just shut the fuck up!

Devoid of heart
Devoid of mind
Devoid of all
That will define

This is not living
Never began
Empty husk that
Once was man

Imprisoned in the darkness
No solace for the soulless
No rest for the wicked
Nor direction for the aimless

You think you know pain, you think you know sorrow
You know nothing of suffering in the realms of the psyche
When all you love is stripped away, forced into a chore
When the ability to hope has been torn from your core

Why, you ask, do I keep living? You call this living?

You call THIS living?
Death is far too easy.

It doesn't matter there's nothing worth my time
You can try to motivate and threaten all you like
But I am one that has lost everything, the essence of humanity
Will never dwell within this shell, a cold and empty shell

That cold and empty shell
That once resembled man
Track Name: Lost and Hopeless
I just don't think I can do this anymore

I need someone to carry me home
Surrounded, never felt so alone
Their happiness sickens me
I fall apart in this sea of apathy (Apathy!)

Shhhh! Head's Screaming!
And it stops my search for meaning.
Is their any place for me?
I wait (God how I wait!)
For something to save me! (Save Me!)

Somebody tell me!
(God Tell Me!)
Why am I here?
What is the answer?

(Voice 2): Yeah, pretty sure it's 42!
Track Name: And All Returns to Ash
No matter who you are
No matter what you do
You'll always be nothing
Just like everyone else
You may be famous
You made history
But it matters not
When the last man's dead

In the end everything expires
Nothing lasts for an eternity
Your life will mean nothing
And all returns to ash
Track Name: Nothing Worth Living For
Nothing worthwhile
All is theft
Nothing living
Nothing left

No one wants me
No one cares
No one needs me
Nothing there.

Nothing There!

No more words
No more faces
There's no hope
There's no hope
There's no fucking hope
Nothing left for me!

For Me!

Nothing worthwhile
All is theft
Nothing living
All are dead

To Me!

Kill The Pain!

They said I was fit for this
But I know they lied
There was no help for me
And now I have to die.

There's no other way out!
