Track Name: Towering Inferno
Onward fury, fireball of rage
Once, twice, hit you again
Tumbling, falling, cloud of death
Smoke filling lungs, choking life

Twenty-five seconds of permanent pain
Seeing your life go down in flames
There's no escape, nowhere to hide
Pulses racing and eyes open wide

Trapped inside like a rat in a cage
The exits sealed and the walls caving in
Fear engulfing my mortal soul
I take the plunge, once and for all

Twenty-five seconds of permanent pain
Seeing your life go down in flames
There's no escape, nowhere to hide
Pulses racing and eyes open wide

Now still laying on the floor
Ashen corpses living no more
Sacrifice to a vengeful God
Vindictive swine marching on to war

Twenty-five seconds of permanent pain
Seeing your life go down in flames
There's no escape, nowhere to hide
Pulses racing and eyes open wide

Twenty-five seconds of permanent pain
Seeing your life go down in flames
There's no escape, nowhere to hide
Pulses racing and eyes open wide
Track Name: Drown In The River
Cesspool paradise
Swimming in shit
Scurry vermin to your doom
This Town shall be your tomb
Crawling parasites
Feed off each other
Scum of the earth
Living in the dirt

'Cos I'm drowning
Oh yes I'm drowning
In that river
The river Thames

Tragic city
In dying day
Has sold it's soul
Nothing left, but to pray
It's children on the streets
A shameful place
The veil it falls
No more standing tall

'Cos I'm drowning
Oh yes I'm drowning
In that river
The river Thames

'Cos I'm drowning
Oh yes I'm drowning
In that river
The river Thames
Track Name: Isolation (Featuring Martin Osterhaug)
Hide away in a darkened shell
Alone I like my wounds clean
Come and save me from myself
All the while my torment hates me
If I called my own way out
I’ll be branded as a coward
This infliction is my weakness
Tearing holes that always wound me
In the madness and confusion
A lone voice can shatter sanity
Like broken glass on footprints
A burning mirror sees right trough me

Twenty years
Is a long time spent in isolation
Ten more can’t hurt
In isolation
I’ve cried myself to sleep
One thousand times in isolation
I’ll do my time
In isolation

I don’t know what the fuck
Has happened to me now
Brain corrupt with darkness
Heart is filled with hate now
Faded lines lead to my soul
Interfering with the endless
Constant motion of emotion
Powering the will to live now
Waning ever straining
Feel my birth being deleted
Hopelessness opening the floodgates
Surging ever screaming

Twenty years
Is a long time spent in isolation
Ten more can’t hurt
In isolation
I’ve cried myself to sleep
One thousand times in isolation
I’ll do my time
In isolation

Am I here? Or in another place and time?
Animalise my inner thoughts and cannibalise my mind
My mirror shatters in my ultimate despair
The voices so confusing, I’m pulling out my hair

Dead eyes stare back at me
Silence breaking noise
Prison for my emotions, a place for them to hide
In solitude I’ll find myself someone to call my own
The voices still confusing, just please leave me alone

Twenty years
Is a long time spent in isolation
Ten more can’t hurt
In isolation
I’ve cried myself to sleep
One thousand times in isolation
I’ll do my time
In isolation
Track Name: Dr. Stein
I’m trapped in this prison cell
My life runs thin
How will I escape?
From this Hell
White ghosts descend upon me
My eyes grow dim
Giggling and screaming still
I’m insane

Dr. Stein please prescribe me
The pills I need
Voices will destroy me
You’re the eyes staring into me

I was carried down the ward
As they point and laugh at me
Mocking my every mood
I’m in Hell
They took me to my judgement
I kicked and screamed
Tied down to the chair
You’re all insane


Dr. Stein please prescribe me
The pills I need
Voices will destroy me
You’re the eyes staring into me

Dr. Stein please prescribe me
Those godamn pills
Voices will destroy me
I know they will
Track Name: Drown In The River (Live at the 229 Club)
Cesspool paradise, swimming in shit
Scurry vermin to your doom
This town will be your tomb
Crawling parasites, feed off each other
Scum of the earth, living in the dirt

‘Cos i’m drowning
Oh yes i’m drowning
In that river
The river Thames

Tragic city, in dying day
Has sold its soul, nothing left but to pray
Its children on the streets, a shameful place
The veil it falls, no more standing tall

‘Cos i’m drowning
Oh yes i’m drowning
In that river
The river Thames

‘Cos i’m drowning
Oh yes i’m drowning
In that river
The river Thames
