Within The Ruins The Charm

Tonight’s the night, and he’s ready for a thrill

He’s got a plan in place, and he’s dressed to kill

Tonight’s the night, and he’s dressed to impress

She never knew what she had coming

He seemed so charming, so promising

Any fool could see his intent

How could she be so blind?

How could she be so blind?

Now she wakes alone and confused

Now she wakes up alone and confused

He walks away, his mission’s been fulfilled

He changed her life, in the blink of an eye

Now the predator, has become the prey

I’m hunting scum, that’s all there is to say

I can’t wait for his throat to fill my hands

I will squeeze and ignore all demands

Vengeance is what fills my eyes

I follow his every step, close behind

The chance to be alone is finally here

Can’t turn back now, my motives are clear

Tonight’s the night, and I’m ready for a thrill

I’ve got a plan in place, now I’m dressed to kill

Tonight’s the night, and he’s dressed to impress

Without, without a shred of innocence

Strap him down

This night of torture begins, now

He awakens and begins to struggle

Sees my face and begins to buckle

This is violence

This is revenge

This is violence and revenge (this is violence)

This is violence and revenge (this is revenge)

This is violence and revenge (this is violence)

This is violence and revenge

This is revenge

Within The Ruins Arsenal

We have been sent to overthrow you.

Your reign is over.

Your time is done.

Watch us take our lead.

We’ve come to take over.

We’ve come to take our lead.

Your reign is over.

You’ve met your self-prophesized demise.

Your reign is nigh and the beginning is now.

Bow to us and we’ll let you live.

Nobody could have foreseen this, but it was destined to happen.

The battle’s been won, but the war has just begun.

Come on take the reins. Come on and take the reins.

The battle’s been won, but the war has just begun.

I’m ready to make my attack on the world.

Attack the world.

I’m ready to make my attack on the world.

I’ve got the biggest arsenal around.

I’m ready to make my attack on the world.

I’ve got the biggest arsenal around.

Somebody call for help.

There’s going to be a fucking massacre.

Just ring the bell and leave the bodies at the door.

Your reign is over.

You’ve met your self-prophesized demise.

Your reign is nigh and the beginning is now.

Bow to us and we’ll let you live.

Your reign is over.

You’ve met your self-prophesized demise.

Bow to us and we’ll let you live.

Step down.

We bowed in their presence.

We bowed in their aura.

Step down.

We bowed in their presence.

We bowed in their aura.

Step down.

We bowed in their presence.

We bowed in their aura.

Within The Ruins Clockwork

Oh what to do, what to do when a city had run amuck (run amuck)

Can’t tell the surviving from the dying

Can’t tell the corrupt from the pure

The gutters are full of blood

From the sex, scum, politics, and whores

Like a beaten child this city whimpers

Backed into a corner with no one to save it

But there are still few who believe

In blocking the hands that bleeds

That bleed this city dry

Suck it up for the ones that deserve to be alive

Suck it up for the ones that deserve to be alive

Justice is coming to all of us

No matter what the fuck we do

This is not a conquest of men

But of the evils that beset them

It’s all so confusing, but yet so simple

The American dream is condemned

And we’re all going down

And we’re all going down

The gutters are full of blood

From the sex, scum, politics and whores

Like a beaten child this city whimpers

But there are still few who believe

In blocking the hand that bleeds

That bleeds this dry

Suck it up for the ones that deserve to be alive

Suck it up for the ones that deserve to be alive

Be alive

Judgement will come not with a gavel

But with a nuclear blast

Judgement will come not with a gavel

But with a nuclear blast

This utopia was built on horror

This utopia was built on horror

This utopia was built on horror

This utopia was built on horror

It’s all so confusing, but yet so simple

The American dream is condemned

And we’re all going down

And we’re all going down

Within The Ruins Fight Fire With Fire

Do unto others as they’ve done to you

But what the hell is this world coming to?

Blow the universe into nothingness

Nuclear warfare shall lay us to rest

Fight fire with fire

Ending is near

Fight fire with fire

Bursting with fear

We all shall die

Time is like a fuse, short and burning fast

Armageddon is here, like said in the past

Fight fire with fire

Ending is near

Fight fire with fire

Bursting with fear

Soon to fill our lungs the hot winds of death

The gods are laughing, so take your last breath

Fight fire with fire

Ending is near

Fight fire with fire

Bursting with fear

Fight fire with fire [x8]

Fight!

Within The Ruins Infamy

I disgust the people that make this planet so ugly.

I despise the people who make us, make us so weary.

To the liars, cheaters, and fakes.

The ones draining any sense of dignity;

Go ahead and tell me I’m wrong.

Go ahead and tell me I’m wrong.

The greedy, the corrupt and religious rite.

Just three more examples of who I spite.

Anyone of them would see you die,

All you have to do is name a price.

So name your price.

Anyone of them would see you die,

All you have to do is name a price.

So name your

So name your price.

People dying to survive

Right outside your door.

It’s not you, so fuck it right?

My hatred will outpour.

I scream so can you hear me?

Can you fucking hear me?

Greed has poisoned the soul of man,

Barricading the world with hate.

Humanity in misery.

Underneath your prophecy.

You will see the savagery.

You will follow me.

Irresolute reality.

Shrouded in hypocrisy.

Blinded by disparity,

My misanthropy.

And so it goes.

The bad outweigh the good.

The corrupt dominate the pure.

This is the world in which we live;

This is my justified misanthropy.

And so it goes.

Within The Ruins Elite

I am here to invoke the beast in you

Tear out the pain that you’ve consumed

Trust in me as I stare into you

I recognize all that you’ve been through

(All that you’ve been through)

Because I have been there too

Because I have been there too

Provoke what makes you torn

Now flip that switch and transform

We are fucking elite

And nothing can ever touch us

We are elite

As for the rest

Obsolete

Within these walls we are defiant

Look at this as your therapy

Lose yourself

In this moment of cleansing

Lose yourself

In this moment of intensity

As for the rest, obsolete

We are elite

We are elite

We are elite

Shed your mortal shell

Let those inner demons free

Close those eyes and dig deep

Clench your fists

And with me say

What makes your hair stand tall

What makes your blood boil

What makes your skin crawl

Channel these feelings and erupt

(Now we’re rigged and set to explode)

We are elite

This is where you belong

We are elite

This is where you belong

We are elite

This is where you belong

Within The Ruins Ivory Tower

False gods!

There are more criminals among us.

Than behind cold prison walls.

They stand on podiums above us.

False promises masked in their calls,

Powers that lead.

Fail to set precedent.

Lie, cheat, fake, steal.

Paint themselves in innocence.

Powers that lead.

Fail to set precedent.

Lie, cheat, fake, steal.

Paint themselves in innocence.

What will we do?

‘Cause the fire is in our own backyard.

What will we do?

‘Cause the fire is in our own backyard.

Powers that be,

Fail to set precedent.

Lie, cheat, fake, steal.

Dress themselves in abhorrence.

Powers that be,

Fail to set precedent.

Lie, cheat, fake, steal.

Dress themselves in abhorrence.

How can we, can we change?

What does not want to change.

How can we have a voice?

While our mouths are sewn shut.

False gods!

A simple smile can only hide so much.

This behavior is predictable

And it must be treated as such.

They’ll always use our hope as their crutch,

Powers that lead.

Fail to set precedent.

Lie, cheat, fake, steal.

Paint themselves in innocence.

Powers that be.

Fail to set precedent.

Lie, cheat, fake, steal.

Dress themselves in abhorrence.

What will we do?

‘Cause the fire is in our own backyard.

What will we do?

‘Cause the fire is in our own backyard.

How can we, can we change?

What does not want to change,

How can we have a voice?

While our mouths are sewn shut.

We’ll shrug our shoulders

And accept the fact that we’re all just fucked.

We’re all fucked.

We’re all fucked.

What will we do?

‘Cause the fire is in our backyard.

(We’re all fucked.)

What will we do?

‘Cause the fire is in our backyard.

(We’re all fucked.)

Within The Ruins Gods Amongst Men

They drew first blood

Just like I knew they would

Fearing what they don’t understand

We are evolution

They drew first blood

Just like I knew they would

Fearing what they don’t understand

We are evolution

We are gods

We were more than friends

That all changed with a spark of insanity

But I dream of a perfect harmony

Gods walking one with humanity

But I ask not for friendship or love

All I demand is fear and blind obedience

Cease your revelry and heed me

Let me in

Let me in

Free your mind

Trust in me

I’ll show you what it is to feel complete

Free your mind

Trust in me

I’ll show you what it means

They drew first blood

Just like I knew they would

Fearing what they don’t understand

We are evolution

We are gods

Oppression is no excuse

For vengeance forgive and forget to live in harmony

Inconceivable your dream is dead

Because they drew first blood

Just like I knew they would

Please let me in

Free your mind

Trust in me

I’ll show you what it is to feel complete

Free your mind

Trust in me

I’ll show you what it means

I ask not for friendship or love

All I demand is fear and blind obedience

Cease your revelry and heed me

I’ll show you what it is to feel complete

Free your mind

Trust in me

I’ll show you what it means

Within The Ruins Cash Her In

By now I can hear the sirens. They’re getting close now.

Just hold one more minute. Time is against us now.

Someone call for help. Save her she’s going to die.

Someone call for help. Save her she’s going to die.

Turning. Replaying it all in my head.

Walk onto death and let the stars be your compass.

Pray for stars.

Pray for stars.

Don’t close your eyes just yet.

Faster now. We’re picking up speed.

Faster now. We’re picking up speed.

We’re set to crash.

You’re dragging your feet again.

So walk onto death.

With words unspoken I’ve given up.

I’ve given up on you.

With words unspoken I’ve given up.

I’ve given up on you.

By now I can hear the sirens. They’re getting close now.

Just hold one more minute. Time is against us now.

Someone call for help. Save her she’s going to die.

Someone call for help. Save her she’s going to die.

Turning. Replaying it all in my head.

Walk onto death and let the stars be your compass.

Brace your fall.

Within The Ruins Versus

If God is real than he’s an evil motherfucker

He’s watching his greatest creation

Die before his eyes, dead before his eyes.

There is a war outside, so wake up!

If God is real he’s probably kicking back

Enjoying the show.

As his greatest creation cries before his eyes,

Cry because he lied.

Here I am with arms wide open.

I’m calling you out!

Show yourself, I’m calling you out.

Show yourself, I’m calling.

I’m calling you out.

If God is real than he’s an evil motherfucker

He’s watching his greatest creation

Die before his eyes, dead before his eyes.

Fuck your mysterious ways

Fuck your “gift” of free will.

This is me versus him.

This is me in my finest hour.

I’m calling you out.

This is me versus him.

This is me in my finest hour.

I’m fucking calling him out.

With him you are godless.

With him you are fucking hopeless.

(Fucking hopeless)

This is me versus him.

This is me in my finest hour.

This is me calling him

Calling him, calling him.
