Track Name: DESOLIST - The Resurrection
THE RESURRECTION

Run! Just run away they say
but no longer will I let defeat take me
bored stiff, with nothing else
now I'll claw my way out, from this grave that I have dug

Why must I always be this way?
my mind has decayed and I'm not okay
wash away the blood and these tears
erased every fear, so I can sleep better at night

-SOLO-
When I thought the end was near
I quickly realized that was all just fear
Burnt by failure, corrupted this.
Now I accept, it was part of the risk

Burnt alive I see myself crawling back to the hole
that I once called my home
Been digging deeper and deeper
Now I am friends with the Reaper
I am truly a lost soul

And now I'm back from the Dead
back for vengeance!

And when I push through the dirt
I arrive at the Earth and it's like a rebirth

When I leave this grave
the sound wave is all that I crave
I've been-
I've been fucking hiding
While everyone's climbing, I've been fucking dying
stuck in a grave, I've been decayed, but now is not too late.

Watch me Resurrect up from the grave
You can take my sanity, but can't touch my vitality
I've been to hell and back
tried to get my life on track

but now is the time
to nut up or shut up, and survive.
Track Name: DESOLIST - Hellaphant
HELLAPHANT

Awoken in fear, screaming is all that I hear
everything around now burning down
bridges collapsing life's not everlasting.

This is Earth's Vengeance
Escape!
straight to my daughter's room she's safe I assume
Wrong!
Unconscious, Face down on the floor bothered me to the core
Pick her up!
and throw her over my shoulder
Let's get the fuck out!
We want to live without a doubt,
so I hope I pick the right route.

I have the mindest of a survivor
but never been put to the test, only been our provider
I will find a way to revive her
would give my life for hers, you calling me a liar?

Oh no! I see that she has injuries
to her neck and on her knees!
luckily I see that she is still breathing

NOW I can't see.
The electricity is out

and now she's wide awake and she's screaming in pain!
9 more stories below that we have to go
will we survive this earthquake? oh

SOLO

This building's burning down!
could collapse at any second

We escape! at a panicked rate
I really thought that it was too late.
But it's no better down here,
screaming's still the only thing I hear.

Extreme mudslides have taken lives of the innocent.
Now everythings calm...

It starts again!
I'm filled with panic and adrenaline
we run for the structure for shelter.
Pinned to the ground! more of the structure is coming down!
Get away my dear! I don't want you to see what's happening here
Run Away!

This is Earth's Vengeance.
Track Name: DESOLIST - These Demons
THESE DEMONS

In ancient mines grew parasites that have evolved but rapidly
They're feeding on our fear, Oh what a catastrophe

Skinned alive!
Genocide!
Do you think that we will survive?

There's only a fools chance
So we better make it last

CAN WE ESCAPE DEATH?
Without the rules of heaven or hell?

Oh I'm tryin to believe
That everything I see is not a dream
but is really right infront of me
hearing distant screams as I attempt to flee
Selfish me keeps on sprinting

CAN WE ESCAPE DEATH?

and now the reaper approaches with his children
I see the hate within his eyes, oh they burn so fucking bright.
Mutation Mutilation!
this is the end of mankind

and now I'm running for my life
mutated parasites right behind me
disfiguring everything
is running a lost cause?

this ocean of bodies growing stronger
my chance of survival is nonexistent

This can't be
I've spawned at the gates of hell please set me free
no not a dream
animosity at its peak
no they will never set us free.
Track Name: DESOLIST - Glass Cannon
GLASS CANNON

I hate this game of life and I don't want to play
I don't have many tries left and certainly
not the lives when I just want to
give up and
GAME OVER

Even when you're selfless people can always be selfish
and play this character that you want to see just play in the movies
it is insane that is where they stand
just like a puppet stealing everything from hand

CHORUS
set me free! I need to find away to escape the cage
(to escape this cage)
that my mind has made

I am the product of an overthinker
replaying every little thing in my head
why does this happen to me?
it happens to the best of us

why? do we all have so many struggles in life?
(struggles in life)
I know it's not fair, and I hope you get there
to a day without negativity

Spinning out of control have you lost your mind?
you must regain traction before you're out of time
it goes by so fast, these years really flew past

SOLO

Marching forward with our heads held high, promise you'll try

Picking the lock to my own brain
searching in panic cause I have no key

CHORUS
just set me free! I need to find away to escape the cage
(to escape this cage)
that my mind has made

I am the product of an overthinker
replaying every little thing in my head
after all of this confusion I found a solution

If you crash and burn
Arise from the ash better than before
with our heads held high
with our heads held high
Track Name: DESOLIST - Calvin Kelley
CALVIN KELLEY

Where do I begin?
Your loyalty, or decency of a human being
Best friend that I'll ever have
I wanna go 6 years back to the day we first met
You always had my back a friendship that would last
forever.

I've lost myself again and I'd do anything
to bring back your smile
You always had my back a friendship that would last
I want to bring you back

At any second life could turn for the worst
Hold tight the ones you love cause you'll never know
who's first to leave this earth
now a broken family stuck spiraling in agony.

I will see you on the other side

We have all been consumed by losing you
21 was just too young to die a happy father
Pain
this pain and misery took hold of me and everyone around.

Last night I had a dream that you were still alive
Everything was just fine
can we go back in time?
I just want to see your face, it's like you've been misplaced
and now we're all changed.

Such a man of love, God you have been mistaken
If you are real up there, where is your reasoning here?
Where?!

I suffer everyday without you here
This emptiness inside corrupts but I won't suicide
I'm stuck

We have all been consumed by losing you
21 was just too young to die, to die
to die a friend a father.
Track Name: DESOLIST - 100 Headed Hydra Headache
100 HEADED HYDRA HEADACHE

An old man's tale reads
There's a gem beneath the mountain
That will grant power to one.

As I leave this town for good I feel a better sense of direction
this single thing is all I need to feel like I have meaning

Now I can't let this go
We've been buried by the lies of the ignorant.

Scared for my life as "These Demons"
chase after me like I'm they're only enemy, why?
The Possession from the Hydra!
They do what they're told
Seeking command from Unholy Hydra.

Believe it, I've seen it, you really don't need it!
this power is a Myth how could I not feel it?

Why would you sacrifice everything you've done for power?
Rotten on the inside out
just the thought of power corrupts minds.

But then again I've never seen a vision oh so clear.
It went rotting away when I thought this could change it all
My life is spiraling down a hole
still searching endlessly.

Searching for a power that doesn't exist
leave it to me oh I couldn't resist
"These Demons" take me and rearrange me into "The Creature"
Track Name: DESOLIST - Dark Motives
DARK MOTIVES

Change!
A change is needed here in order
to excel and not rebel
they're only focused on their books to sell
without a right price for it all

There is no justification in our generation
for a lack of education
inflation changes this nation's motivation
eradication of higher education

We have all been hypnotized
blind and there's almost nothing you can do
they've made up their minds
now that they're all infected
we've become neglected
stealing from our creative minds
just to keep feeding their banks

for what? Greed
public schools cutting classes that the
masses learn fastest and for what?
Greed

Burning every bridge around
breaking every kid down you are so sick
more college drop-outs than I've ever seen
they can't afford the fee's
while you bathe in greed, sickening!

SOLO

I can't believe the one's that have failed
the prices derailed, now this ship has sailed
we're all fucking railed, how can't you care
for this little detail? now this will affect
more than you ever thought

look into they eyes of the ones that you have robbed
now that this is all a mess and we are all so stressed
just cut us, cut us some slack we're breaking our backs now
already chained for life by this debt
living in fear of full regret

Why rob us all?
Slowly but surely
everyone could listen to the words we say
do you not want hope for your kids some day?
to break through these prices that
We can't even afford

bring it on down, the price all around
the debts to be paid, the kids that obeyed might
live on forever, awaiting their day to be paid.
Track Name: DESOLIST - It's Always Raining
IT'S ALWAYS RAINING

Tossing and turning this sickness is luring me in
to a mess of distress, I want to be my best
life put's me to the test

This life isn't quite what I thought it'd be
so fucked after all this shit
I just want to quit, but push through it with me

CHORUS
Why can't life just be easy?
why? Why should I even try to lie? I agree
that life is so fucked up then they'll tell you suck it up
This sadness remains
Heart's have been broken while life has been taking it all
OH

Maybe someday we can say that everything's fine
but for now I'm allowed to feel backstabbed by the World
I won't let this control my head again, NO!
not okay, been a slave, to this game life likes to play

can only lose so much til one turns insane
every little thing gets under my skin
I'm rotting within, without even
sinning I'm ridding myself of bad thoughts
but the world took my best friend thinking he's all I've got
The World's sick and twisted and it won't give a fuck
Keep rolling your dice you'll run, run out of luck

CHORUS
Why can't life just be easy?
why? Why should I even try to lie? I agree
that life is so fucked up then they'll tell you suck it up
This sadness remains
Heart's have been broken while life has been taking it all

I've been patiently waiting while always debating life
it's now escalating with no proper training, GO

It's Always Raining
Maybe one day we can feel sane after it rains
tired of feeling this way

It's Always Raining
Maybe one day we can feel sane after it rains
tired of feeling this way
I'm tired of feeling this way.
Track Name: DESOLIST - The Creature
THE CREATURE

I'll read you one last story before you go to sleep
of a King who thought that he could rule anything
til one day a Creature from down below
spawned violently and it changed everything

All of my men are dead now I must do this alone
I gotta keep my confidence to protect my home
I will march

Leave it, just leave it be something is telling me
I just wanna believe that I can succeed
in conquering anything

Entering the cave I feel my mind changing
I see movement in the darkness
the size of my enemy tells me

I better run for my life!

I awake dazed, and I can't remember a single thing
my body is oozing it's all so confusing
as it comes back to me panic sinks in

Where is it?
Covered in blood, my mind turns to mind
as I hear it creeping closer

Back and forth my mind is racing what Will I do?
so many bones are broken I can hardly move
help, I need help! Please someone fucking help me
No one can hear, all alone as I die right here in fear

Rotting on the bones of my brothers
inches away I think it's toying with me
Rotting on the bones of my brothers

I know that this is my fault and how I got here
I shouldn't believe that I can succeed in conquering anything
now I'm not a king, will never be a king
and these thoughts pierce me like a bee-sting

Why lie when I've already lost it all?
Don't live your life foolish
Don't live your life foolish
Don't live your life foolish
Don't live your life foolish
