Lyrics

Sick Society

Written By: State of Fate

Hoping to find a way
To get out of this place
Tolerance has no face
In a world like this

Blinded by their lives
All lived with empty minds
Hoping that their lies
Reflect what's real

What they don't choose to know
Can't be taught
Can't be shown

It's all a part of me
In this sick society
Consumed by what they see
In reversed reality

Looking to find a face
That hasn't been erased
Willing to make a change
To shift their thoughts

What they don't choose to brand
Is exactly where we'll stand

It's all a part of me
In this sick society
Confused by what they see
In reversed reality

Individuality
No longer what I see
This sick society
Has overtaken me
Damn me

Never Say Never

Written By: State of Fate

Somehow, somewhere, somebody is
Not where they want to be
Some way, he thinks life's over
One day he'll be set free
In time, wounds all scar over
The flesh won't be the same
This game is not forever
Just be sure not to forget the pain

Never say
Never make
The same mistakes
'Cause once they're made
You'll see, it's been done before

Somehow, somewhere, somebody is
Not where they want to be
Some way, she thinks life's over
One day she'll be set free
The breaking point draws nearer
Not far inside, it seems
One look into a mirror
Reflects in your life what's meant to be

Never say
Never make
The same mistakes
'Cause once they're made
You'll see, it's been done before

(Repeat Chorus)

Soulless and Faded

Written By: State of Fate

Sunlight burns my eyes
And I can barely see
Black roses start to grow
The end is coming, for me

Upon the wings of a fallen angel
From clouds to rain, yeah it took you a while
Sun never sets, in a mind so open
I'm soulless, and faded through eternity

What grows, inside
I'll sanctify myself
But never comes to leave me emptiness
What's left, will die
That is my sacrifice
Fades from existance eternally

A picture perfect sky in flames
Growing cold from honesty
Mind brings a flash of change
Beside itself, confining me

Upon the wings of a fallen angel
From clouds to rain, yeah it took you a while
Sun never sets, in a mind so open
I'm soulless, and faded through eternity

What grows, inside
I'll sanctify myself
But never comes to leave me emptiness
What's left, will die
That is my sacrifice
Fades from existence…
