Scumbag Riffs and melody aplenty in this EP of death metal reminiscent of early In Flames to some degree, though not entirely so. Ruins Of Humanity are showing that they can wear their influences well without sounding derivative of any of them specifically. Great stuff, every track a winner! Favorite track: Enemy in the mirror.

Track Name: Watch you fall
Fuck you and all that you´ve done
Everytime you used and hurt me
All things are said except one
You were never even worth me
Fuck you i hope you suffer
for a lifetime, for eternity
With a spit upon your face
i set myself free

Not a single tear shall fall
from these opened eyes
What i once had loved
i now despise.
All the moments and memories
are rotting in disgrace
I bury all i felt for you
and piss upon the grave

All those times i was there for you
Now i won´t be there anymore
I know i´m worth something better
than a lying, filthy whore
All those times i was there for you
Now i won´t be there anymore
All those times you could count on me
Now with a smile i watch you fall

Now who of us is the damaged ?
Whom of us is weak ?
As you crawl in the shit you created
and cry yourself to sleep
Don´t tell your lies to me
I won´t believe them anymore
Don´t come crawling back for me
All my feelings are gone

All those times i was there for you
Now i won´t be there anymore
I know i´m worth something better
than a lying, filthy whore
All those times i was there for you
Now i won´t be there anymore
All those times i stood by your side
Now with a smile i watch it all die
Track Name: Reflection
The will to fight faded away
My whole being turned into grey
The inner battles were all in vain
Just useless efforts to break from the chains
I have tried to get free, find another way
Still every tomorrow repeats yesterday
I have tried to run. I have tried to hide
Now i finally surrender the war with my mind.

Now my heart is blackened,
filled with agony
Product of society
What you have forced me to be
But the face in the mirror
forever i will despise
Picture of all things i hate,
reflection of mankind

Time has come to kneel and accept defeat
twenty years in vain i´ve searched for a higher reason to live
No matter how hard you scream everything remains the same
You´ve drained all of me. There´s nothing more to give
The hive is calling for us to come
A spreading disease takes us one by one
The curse within us cannot be denied
So take me with you to the darker side

All this time i´ve wasted in pointless dreaming
In a search for a reason, in a search for a meaning
All this time i´ve tried to fight the world
Now i know that rebellion only made me hurt

Cut off my ideals
Erase my pride
Let me join the fallen
On the darker side

All this time i´ve wasted in pointless dreaming
In a search for a reason, in a search for a meaning
All this time i´ve tried to resist control
Now i know that to live i must sell my soul
Track Name: Severed
Blade of silver divides
takes away it all
On wings of hatred he flies
and hopes to never fall
Vibrant footsteps slowly fading
revealing just another hell
Everything that he´s been through
his eyes could not whitstand the truth
and see what has begun

Escape from the sacrificion
Footsteps make it go away
Someone has been there before
Follow the image of yourself
The one you hate

He took a step towards the light
Leaving everything behind
In darkness everything is one
But the tearing cannot be undone

Golden icon, an arrow
flashes to obscurity
Pictures in his mind don´t care
Breaking through anxiety
Breathless at the edge of worlds
The bridge opens up ahead
Wind blows cold and stops the time
For the shattered ruins
of a broken mind
And dust settles again

He walked straight into the light
Leaving everything behind
Things had gone to shit anyway
Severed, you´ll never be the same
Track Name: Enemy in the mirror
So many times you brought me to my knees.
So many times i witnessed my defeat.
Now watch the rise of a newborn man.
I can smell your fear as you make your final stand.

Staring into the eyes of my nemesis.
Whispering this will be your end.
Time has come to slay the evil inside.
So take your last breath enemy in the mirror.
My memories tear old wounds wide open.
I see a child beaten down and broken.
Decades of weakness, hurt and sorrow
Pains of yesterdays leave me standing paralyzed and hollow.

My fist breaks the glass as i scream this time you won´t win.
The child you tortured for 24 years has turned into a man.
So bring me anything.
Anything or anyone.
Unbreakable by whatever life brings.
Even the enemy within.
