Track Name: FALLEN
I'm falling in Hell.
I'm so lonely I can't even tell.
I'm so sick of this life.
And I see right through your lies.

But I know you'll come back to me
In the dead of the night.
And I know I've lost my sanity.
But it'll be alright.
Track Name: BLACK ROSE
Minutes turn to hours as I stare into the black
Long for the ways or means for me to bring her back.
Feel her pull me closer, got no choice to run away.
By her side, inside the dirt, is where I'll have to stay.

Late at night, when the witching hour comes,
I will lay these flowers on your grave.
Find my way by candlelight alone.
Call your name, but nobody's home.

Reflection in the mirror I can't recognize at all.
Death is creeping closer as I'm stumbling down the hall.
Drunk from the illusion of your specter in my mind.
Lost within the mansion of a love I cannot find.
Track Name: LORRAINE
They came out of the grave
And left with my Lorraine.
Now my life's not the same.
Wherever evil dwells.
I'll send them straight to Hell.
Back to where they came.

And I will run to the ends of the Earth.
Fight through these demons of undead rebirth.
And I will slaughter countless numbers of them.
Until I find you. Woah, Lorraine.

I can see them in my dreams.
Those wicked, evil fiends.
Took you far away.
I'll see their rotting flesh
Fucked up in a bloody mess.
Soon they'll fear my name.
Track Name: SHAPESHIFTER
The moon is full.
There's gonna be blood tonight.
In the woods there's a howl.
There's something wrong in this hollow.
No longer feel like myself.

Cannot feel my claws, I cannot feel my fangs.
I know my life is never gonna be the same.
Woah, oh, oh, woooooah, oh, oh, SHAPESHIFTER.

Am I wolf?
Am I man?
Got this disease for her bite.
Is this worth immortality?
Then see the wolf in my eyes.
Track Name: NOTHING TO LOSE
Late at night.
When the moon arises from her stellar crypt.
We've got what we want.
We've got the high life in our grip.

Among the trash, it's Friday night.
And we ain't got shit to do.
All we've got is our regrets.
And a couple bottles of booze.
(We'll drink we'll fight)
(We'll fuck tonight)
(And we don't give a fuck about you)
We got nuthin' to lose.

It's midnight.
We go out to the show just to have a couple beers.
See the bands on the stage.
Watch them satiate their rage.
And forget your fears.
Track Name: TALE OF THE SCARLET GHOST
I can see your face just as pale as the moon.
Like an angel you were took too soon.
All in all I look for the remains
Of broken hearts and blood stained wings.

The ghost, she sings.
A song of a long time ago.
It's time to go home.
But she'll never know.

I can feel her inside my sleep.
Haunting me inside my dreams.
She's calling me a name I've never heard before.
And asking me if I love her.

The ghost, she sings.
A song of a long time ago.
It's time to go home.
But she'll never know.

Take my hand my sweet love.
I've waited so long
To hear your voice and feel your touch.
I've come from the other side every single night.

The ghost, she sings.
A song of a long time ago.
I tell her to go home.
And that I love her so.
So sleep, my angel.
Track Name: WICKED TEEN
She was just a teen.
She was into wicked things.
Who knew it would go wrong?
It was just a harmless game.
So why is she insane?
And no longer the girl we knew.

We told her to let it go.
Something she doesn't know.
But she's not here, no. Woah oh oh.
We told her to let it go.
Something she doesn't know.
But she's already gone. Woah oh oh.

She thought she knew everything.
Buying candles for those evil flames.
Ouija board in hand.
Now the door has closed.
Now her breath has froze.
Hate to say I told you so.

You can hear her tonight.
From a world not so right.
By the demons.
EATING HER ALIVE.
Track Name: REST IN PEACE
Sometimes I have to wonder.
Where did it all go?
People say time will tell.
But I just have to know.

Will I see you again, darling?
Or are you just in my dreams?
I wander the streets, you haunt me.
Let me rest in peace.

I thought I just heard your voice.
Or was it just the wind?
Tell me how this nightmare will end.
Will I be hurt again?
Track Name: THE SACRIFICE
This burning fire lights to show the way to Hell.
Ritual sacrifice, the chiming of the tower bell.
My time is coming now, the blood is soon to spill.
The dead are rising up, I know it's time to kill.

She will die.
And she will rise.
Into the night.
She'll be mine.

The sacrifice.
It's a beautiful night to end your life.
The moon is bright.
And the wolfsbane blooms upon the fireside.
Eternal life.
And I'll bathe in her blood until the end of time.
This is her final rite.

This lust for virgin blood, it takes all my control.
The hour of the wolf brings death, so silent a cold
As the Winter's chill that seeps into my bones.
This life of solitude, the only Hell I've ever known.
Track Name: ASHES
I can't seem to find
The time to lay down and die.
Everything hurts inside.
I feel these tears of blood are falling from my eyes.

Moonlight, midnight.
I won't be waiting here for you.
In the glow of blackened eyes.
Tombstone, blood flow.
I've got no hatred left for you.
Ashes are the only thing you'll find.

I know this time, it's right.
I know this time I won't survive.
Flames of solitude will burn me alive.
Ashes on the Autumn breeze I'll ride into the night.

See the fear in your eyes.
Know that this is the end of your life.
Spiders flee from their corners to hide.
From the black blood that drips from my knife.
Track Name: BLOOD OF THE WOLF
The man in me has died long ago.
Only wolf remains.
Late at night, the moonlight shows my hate.
Bend my back, prepare for the change.

Thirteen pentagrams etched in the snow.
With the blood of my only one.
I never meant to rip out your spine.
Oh, God no. What have I done?

So, I'll slice the tendons.
Teeth like razors crack the bones.
As I find myself alone once again.
So I'll kill just as many as I can.
Before the daylight breaks.
And I become a man.

As I walk through the valley of eternal flame.
Trying to find my way back home to you.
But I know when I find you there.
Your skin will be so cold and blue.

As you walk away.
Remember this.
Moonlight will decay
In the abyss.
I will fade away.
Cease to exist.
Until the end.
I'll rot away.
