This place, is dark and gray
Uneasy, I feel torn apart
My mind, is clouded and blurred
This city, is interchanging

SAC-RI-FICE

Memories past
Unaware, of what I've become

Constant changes are imploring me
Search my mind look for the answers
Finding nothing but this fear in me
Immersing myself in this feeling
Realizing I am not alone
They are watching, people changing
Unconsciously twisting memory
Gathering our human feelings

Experimenting, to understand the human soul
Endangered they'll fade away
They won't deceive me
They'll never take my soul away
Their life form fades

Fill our heads with false identities
Synchronizing our confusion
Using the dead, for their own need
Parasitic infestation
Imprisonment, in celestial space
Unlocking the human life force
Escaping their grasp, now we are free
Their objective failed unknowing

Experimenting, to understand the human soul
Endangered they'll fade away
They won't deceive me
They'll never take my soul away
Their life form fades
