William Conn This is nice melodic/heavy metal. The track Shadows Black really gives me a USPM ballad vibe in the shades of Iced Earth. Favorite track: Shadows Black.

Gone and Forgotten Gone You can’t deny Your life is fading fast You won’t deny That life is gone in a flash Your legacy A past full of shame You question The choices that you've made Gone Mortality, from the dust we are born Fragility, to dust we return Gone and forgotten Gone and forgotten You know your dying And you feel the end is drawing near Gone and forgotten Gone and forgotten No! You know your time And there's nothing left to fear Accepting fear This fear that drives your life Salvation you'll find your only hope Gone and forgotten Gone and forgotten You know your dying And you feel the end is drawing near Gone and forgotten Gone and forgotten No! You know your time And there's nothing left to fear Reflections of my past they haunt me Legacy of shame upon me No lasting claim to fame They wont remember me No one to love I'm in misery Reflections of my past they haunt me with no one to love, god forgive me Gone and forgotten For all you do, so little time The price you paid, you fade away You fade like a dying star Gone and forgotten Gone and forgotten

Paths to Follow Rise! Rise! You can call me rebel But that's how I roll You can call me devil Or a man without a soul You can call me trouble Always in control But the choices that I've made They've always served me well You think you know What is best for me In the land of liberty No longer so free I don't care if you like me I don't care about what you say I don't care about what you think Just stay out of my way! And as we walk through life the paths we follow in this land Our freedom and our choices time to make a stand...cause I play the hand I'm dealt don't try to walk the line As you choose to close your mind I choose to open mine Freedom calls to me The open road it lies ahead As we ride into the darkness In the land of liberty Don't you try to cross paths with me You'll be begging for your life Cause we are brothers standing tall And we will never fall You think you know What is best for me In the land of liberty No longer so free I don't care if you like me I don't care about what you say I don't care about what you think Just stay out of my way! And as we walk through life the paths we follow in this land Our freedom and our choices time to make a stand...cause I play the hand I'm dealt don't try to walk the line As you choose to close your mind I choose to open mine Everything changes! Everything changes! They try to tell you what is the right path to choose In the land of confusion Watching every move we make Big brothers watching you as you fall Big brothers watching you! Rise! You can call me rebel Well I'll stand up for my rights You’re frozen in your moral prison Your lack of will to fight Don't you try to reach out to me Or pretend to be my friend Giving up and giving in Is the same as being dead You think you know What is best for me In the land of liberty No longer so free I don't care if you like me I don't care about what you say I don't care about what you think Just stay out of my way! And as we walk through life the paths we follow in this land Our freedom and our choices time to make a stand...cause I play the hand I'm dealt don't try to walk the line As you choose to close your mind I choose to open mine

Insecurity 05:14
Insecurity Addicted to yourself And in your eyes there isn't no one else You need acceptance, for everything you do You crave approval, to make you feel secure You spend your waking hours, dreaming up your fame Poking and posting, chatting, attention with no shame Do you need acceptance? Do you need acceptance? Your inner turmoil and your lack of di-rec-tion Conflict of interest as if you're the only one...what? You're never satisfied unless you're recognized...look at me! Center of your own attention with no compromise Oh how you try For all the world to see Your pleas and cries It’s not too hard to read between the lines Your insecurity is realized The words are on the screen 200 friend requests, every single day Airing your dirty laundry, hey won’t you listen to me? Tweeting your useless nonsense, oh I washed my car! Provocative pictures of yourself like a fashion model Oh how you try For all the world to see Your pleas and cries It’s not too hard to read between the lines Your insecurity is realized The words are on the screen So can feel it? As you sit there all alone Feeling helpless, feeling hopeless Well something’s missing But you just can't find out what's wrong Look in the mirror Take your life and make it your own Insecurity Behavioral change Insecurity Your past mistakes Insecurity It's time to break out from your shell And escape from your living hell Insecurity Break these chains It's not you, it's not me Insecurity Insecurity Oh how you try For all the world to see Your pleas and cries It’s not too hard to read between the lines Your insecurity is realized Oh how you try For all the world to see Your pleas and cries It’s not too hard to read between the lines Your insecurity is realized The words are on the screen

Shadows Black Well I don't even remember The first time they appeared It was so long ago A different time A different life But the horrors Remain the same When I was a child The innocence of my youth To the things unknown From the darkness of sound I cannot see but I know that I wasn't alone I'm not alone... Is this a curse or gift Who is this is person that I see I'm afraid to believe even though that I know what I feel is real Paralyzing me The shadow it calls to me It's everything I fear It’s everything I feel Is this shadow real It's calling out to me Staring at the threshold of my own evil Lies something far more sinister And as the shadow takes hold, I feel the pressure He moves like the blackened smoke from the fires down below The dark it swallows the light tonight And the dark I fear the most is my plight When the night becomes so clear I'm the one they do not fear They speak to me and they whisper my name Call to me back home again If I go I will never come back Cause I am one with shadows black yeah Now I'm older The time moves on But it never gets Never gets any easier I found myself Looking back again And wondering was this all a dream But I can't even remember The first time they appeared It was so long ago Another time A different place But the horrors Remain the same Staring at the threshold of my own evil Lies something far more sinister And as the shadow takes hold, I feel the pressure He moves like the blackened smoke from the fires down below The dark it swallows the light tonight And the dark I fear the most is my plight When the night becomes so clear I'm the one they do not fear They speak to me and they whisper my name Call to me back home again If I go I will never come back Cause I am one with shadows black yeah Darkness shifts A gust of wind A change in the room and whispers The darkness shifts before my eyes A sense I fear That I'm not alone...alone So close to me I can hear them breathe They haunt my dreams I awake in screams Every single night A dark embrace I can’t escape Staring at the threshold of my own evil Lies something far more sinister And as the shadow takes hold, can’t take the pressure The demon calls from the blackened smoke and the fires down below The dark it swallows the light tonight And the dark I fear the most is my plight When the night becomes so clear I'm the one they do not fear They speak to me and they whisper my name Call to me back home again If I go I will never come back Cause I am one with shadows black yeah It's everything I fear It's everything I feel Is the shadow real It's calling out to me

Pathetic 04:24
Pathetic You will never be an idol You are clueless completely unaware Living in a warped state reality Pathetic world that we all share Steal the camera no one cares And leave a trail of human wreckage One cannot help but sit and stare Sit and stare but no one cares No one cares you’re so pathetic Live your life like a media whore No one cares you’re so pathetic Like a moth to realities flames The red lights on Entertaining the masses Fueling your desires You soak it in the negative attention The red lights on completely unaware The media sells it, it fuels your desire The cameras off leaving your despair Narcissistic egomaniac You play the fool bask in the spotlight One cannot help but sit and stare Sit and stare and no one cares No one cares you’re so pathetic Live your life like a media whore No one cares you’re so pathetic Like a moth to realities flames Living a daydream Where do we draw the line? Sadistic manipulation Just to become a star The person on the TV screen Is that who you really are? Like a fallen angel Once shined so bright They turned their backs Leaving your despair The show is over out of the spotlight That sinking feeling you are all alone Complacency masked insecurity The cameras off revealing your despair Fragile mind behind the camera You played the fool grasp for attention Cold cruel world has nothing left for you And no one cares No one cares you’re so pathetic Live your life like a media whore No one cares you’re so pathetic Like a moth to realities flames

Gallows Hill 05:42
Gallows Hill In the summer of 1692 The puritan ways have come to rule The village of Salem a breeding ground of mass hysteria A time of fear no self control Demons and spirits, evil souls Dark times, superstitions, the devils at every door Suspicions become obsessions Accusations of the occult Guilty through association Spill the blood of innocents Nineteen men and women now bear the witches mark Violence in the air, they die alone in the dark As they march up the Gallows Hill, await their final hour Screaming in fear please set them free The mob shouts, hang from the tree Fingers point, passed judgment, a noose around your neck Suspicions become obsessions Accusations of the occult Guilty through association Spill the blood of innocents Nineteen men and women now bear the witches mark Violence in the air, they die alone in the dark As they march up the Gallows Hill, await their final hour First you are... Afflicted...you are accused Sacred...by the unknown Obsession...unholy rituals Accused prey on the poor forcing their lies Guilty In the night... As they walk in the night Through the trees by the shrine in the glimmering light As they make the climb up the slope And they stare at the knotted rope They swing under blackened skies No chance to question why The darkness the mourners cry The long walk on the Gallows Hill where the innocent were sent to die On Gallows Hill they died... On Gallows Hill they died... On Gallows Hill they died... NO! Where the innocent were sent to die On Gallows Hill they died... On Gallows Hill they died... On Gallows Hill they died... On Gallows Hill they died... Where the innocent were sent to die On Gallows Hill they died...

Facelift 04:40
Facelift Can you relieve all the sadness inside With a nip and a tuck from the scalpel Do you believe it will solve all your pain A new face to end all your sorrow You are scarred You are blind Life’s real meaning never find Self absorbed Twisted mind Beauty's within not outside Your beauty is your beast Facelift The mirror cannot lie Facelift The fountain of eternal youth Facelift Until the day you die Facelift The search for perfection Facelift The me generation Facelift Obsessing over aging Facelift Self inflicted mutilation Facelift A new appearance So gratifying Fulfilling your need for attention Your confidence And new self esteem Self feeding delusions of grandeur You are scarred You are blind Life’s real meaning never find Delusions of grandeur Self absorbed Twisted mind Beauty's within not outside Delusions of grandeur Your beauty is your beast Facelift The mirror cannot lie Facelift The fountain of eternal youth Facelift Until the day you die Facelift The search for perfection Facelift The me generation Facelift Obsessing over aging Facelift Self inflicted mutilation Facelift Why the obsession Defying ones own natural progression Oh, why the obsession Will only lead to ones own isolation Pain and self destruction Insecurity leads to senseless transformation You are scarred You are blind Life’s real meaning never find Delusions of grandeur Self absorbed Twisted mind Beauty's within not outside Delusions of grandeur Your beauty is your beast Facelift The mirror cannot lie Facelift The fountain of eternal youth Facelift Until the day you die Facelift The search for perfection Facelift The me generation Facelift Obsessing over aging Facelift Self inflicted mutilation Facelift Facelift

Occupy 04:24
Occupy Whoa...no more Whoa...no more Resistance... Resistance... Resistance Ends with violence Recession Awakens the nightmare Oh! You give what you get don't need no heroes Don't need no politicians broken promises No! Greed and corruption Out of control now All of this frustration It's time for a change now Close on the future But does the end justify the means All this confusion Nowhere to turn now Foreclosing on our own future Who will we turn too Nowhere to run now Nothing left to occupy this land Corrosion Our eyes wide open Economic collapse Our final demise Rise! We bailed them out to big to fail They fed their lies to line their pockets Power and greed, the people they cry Greed and corruption Out of control now All of this frustration It's time for a change now Close on the future But does the end justify the means All this confusion Nowhere to turn now Foreclosing on our own future Who will we turn too Nowhere to run now Nothing left to occupy this land This land... Go! Big brothers reach It knows no bounds Hidden agendas all the lies and deceit Can you hear them The evil calls Tax the rich And pay their fair share But it's never enough They want more...they want more...they want more...they want more! Come on! Occupy Sanctify All our lives Are justified Out of control now Foreclose on the future One people One nation United we stand Who will we turn too Nowhere to run now

Malevolence 04:46
Malevolence If you live in the dark Then the dark lives in you Embracing the shadows As the evil consumes Malevolence is alive Corrupting your twisted mind It hovers, it grows It eats you from the inside No...will never let go As the evil inside Latches onto your soul Assuming control As the demon comes alive Then the darkness will arise Your soul is damned The voices they call Consumed you will fall Control your every move Till there's nothing left of you No...will never let go As the evil inside Latches onto your soul Assuming control As the demon comes alive Then the darkness will arise Belonging to the darkness You fall into temptation A cursed fallen angel Sink into the torment Cursing heavens angels Your soul is damned The hour arrives A deviant cry The man you once were Only shadow you've been ostracized All innocence now cast aside Your pleasure now pain No longer contained Evil will, demon reigns No...will never let go As the evil inside Latches onto your soul Assuming control As the demon comes alive Then the darkness will arise Malevolence is alive Corrupting your twisted mind Malevolence is alive Corrupting your twisted mind

Stolen Innocence From the day I was born I soon lost all control Robbed me of my innocence Claimed me as your property Without my family Without no friends All my love washed away And as he closed the door He stole my destiny They are held against their will I'm ruler of your world Dear children in the dark I am your holy one In a dark secret place I gave myself away I close my weary eyes As he laid his hands on me I'm fueled by spiritual will The ruler of your world To serve my kingdom of false prophets I am unholy one So pure and innocent my little child Mislead to obey in the name of the great I am Hidden from society in a great desert sea My secret compound my twisted madness roams free I cry tears of sorrow when he laid his hands on me I pray for death to come God set me free Fallen from grace I command you obey So pure and innocent my little child Mislead to obey in the name of the great I am Hidden from society in a great desert sea My secret compound my twisted madness roams free Why... Once pure and innocent Child...child My little child No longer child I cry tears of sorrow When he laid his hands on me In a dark secret place I gave myself away
