Track Name: The Contract
That's it, this time it's real
The Devil has awoken again
The contract in his hands will turn
Good people into walking corpses

Don't you see the trickery here ?

So beware 'cause now it seems
We're all slowly getting played

We don't need your paradise
We only want to feel alive
So take a stand and choose a side
It's time to fight bring back your pride

Giving in to his promises
You were eager to sign
Now you see that's a hefty price
For such a sacrifice

Don't you see the trickery here ?

Then one day you realize
You're gonna loose your mind

We don't need your paradise
We only want to feel alive
So take a stand and choose a side
It's time to fight bring back your pride
Track Name: Between Night and Day
This fleeting night is about to vanish away, as I
Wander into this fine scenery all alone
I dive into my mind and slowly I come to realize
The days that made me happy with you beside me are over

The cold of the night now follows me by day, for your
Sun has set and will not shine on me anymore
Beneath the silent stars I secretly pray to any god
Willing to help me now that your smile has faded away

I dream
I can hold you again
I need
You by my side again

If only there was a way for you to hear my song
I could tell you how deeply I cared about you
But now you are only a memory and I feel so lost
I'm not even sure I will ever overcome this ordeal

I hope
We'll meet again
When I get
To the end of the way
I know
There'll be no more pain
When I get
To wipe your tears away
Track Name: Mister K
All around me I can see
Puppets doing shit for glory
They think dope's the way to be
Still they're addict to one thing only

They alter their style and speech
Makes it easy to claim they are unique
They twist their reality
Blinded by the slime they are fed with

You could easily let it slip away
Too bad your pride has passed away
That would be great if some could have stay
A little more like Mister K

Why should only your shadow
Put aside a bit of your ego ?
To wash away this outward show
Seems to be like a good way to grow

In the realm of illusions
Realize that all the kings are blind
That is why until the end
He only stayed true to his own way
