Sitting on the corner watching cars go by All the dirty faces staring at the sky Asking God for answers to the reasons why Some people live to torment and some are born to die What happened to religion? What happened to our faith? What happened to the power to back up what we say? The princes and the paupers, the masses and the fray All fast to play their parts on our judgment day The beacons of our faith keeping vigilance On the growing war on our common sense Pairs of politicians knocking on our door Selling validation to what our lives are for What happened to the outcry? What happened to our faith? What happened to the power to back up what we say? The princes and the paupers, the masses and the fray All fast to play their parts on our judgment day The keepers of the kingdom trying to dismiss The power and potential of a simple kiss Mass market love and romance sold out like a whore Traded for souls and food stamps at your favorite store What happened to our values? What happened to our faith? What happened to the power to back up what we say? The princes and the paupers, the masses and the fray All fast to play their parts on our judgment day

close my eyes and the world is as it seems find out what retribution really means another taste of lilith on my lips one more flavor of the infinite enter my world open my eyes (to the power and the glory) enter my world sever all ties (to the power and the glory) enter my world open my eyes (to the power and the glory) enter my world open my thighs (to the power and the glory) (of god) another level on my path to karmic fate another vision of the ones I have betrayed another wound from the beast that lives within another smile from the pleasure of my sin

sharp teeth, cold skin / victimized from within sharp hip incision / forcefed division need to hunt, need to find / need to find some piece of mind need to find another god / need to find another lie Watching and waiting, impatiently debating all the trials and tribulation, the speculation of the wretched, the branded, the victims and the stranded over paths we never, we never chose to go down forewarned of excess / prefer what it reflects the cost of regret / to be your cold secret the price of your lips / torn open and stripped open hand turns to a fist / thrusting into the abyss Watching and waiting, impatiently debating all the trials and tribulation, the speculation of the wretched, the branded, the victims and the stranded over paths we never, we never chose to go down to the sound of a blackened heart breaking the mistaking your undertaking for a symbol, a truth, a sign of affection the rejection of a lover undone call to arms that never came / the lover that never came the one who knew it all / never knew who to blame have you opened your eyes? / can you open your eyes? have you opened your eyes? / look at me one final time

once upon a time not so long ago i remember dreams of saccharine living without care and without sin dreaming of the things i could have been once upon a time not so long ago i remember hope I'd persevere living without sin and without fear waiting for the light to reappear once upon a time not so long ago i remember dreaming of acclaim living without fear and without shame looking for the one who feels the same once upon a time not so long ago i remember laws of scientists living without shame or avarice Ready to attack my precipice cry for me when you die for me / my perfect enemy my bitter end lie to me when you try to be / my bitter misery my only friend once upon a time not so long ago i remember dreams of phosphorate living without avarice or hate Waiting for desire to abate once upon a time not so long ago i remember nights of fireflies living without hate and without lies Waiting for the light that never dies

Black Ring Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Taking influence from the punk-tinged EBM stylings of Assemblage 23, the excrutiating gentleness of later Gary Numan, and the pop sensabilities of Switchblade Symphony; Black Ring produces a blend of experimental EBM and darkwave that brandishes a brutal aural attack on the senses. ... more
