Till Death do us Part (SIUDMAK / JIOVINO) Day of reckoning is here Blackened skies and fire Running rampant in the streets Greed till the final hour Bound to our salvation And in God we did not trust Delivered us from evil In hell our souls will rot Cry out Till death do us part Cry out The weak left to starve Spread of battle fills the air Cries heard in the night All that once stood back to stone We march forth to strike Devastation mutilation Sounds of victory We come full circle home tonight Broken hearts will bleed Cry out Till death do us part Cry out The weak left to starve Cry out Till death do us part Cry out The weak left to starve Cry out Till death do us part Cry out cry One flash of light you'll see Our mother's womb be gone Nuclear tragedy At last world war is done Spread of battle fills the air Cries heard in the night All that once stood back to stone We march forth to strike Cry out Till death do us part Cry out The weak left to starve One flash of light you'll see Our mother's womb be gone Nuclear tragedy At last world war is done

Beckoning 04:19
Beckoning (SIUDMAK / JIOVINO) What gives you the right to stand There in judgement of me I've given all I have to give Still you waste me Dont give a damn what you've been told My life is mine which to control Oh what the hell I'll sell my soul Will you praise me? With closed eyes I hold no hands Rushing through the fire Working hard these soiled hands Are left behind me Dont give a damn what you've been told My life is mine which to control Oh what the hell I'll sell my soul Will you praise me Pulled between what's right and wrong My own free will decides Pulled between what's right and wrong My own free will decides Pulled between what's right and wrong Pulled between two sides Pulled between what's right and wrong Pulled between two sides....

No Stranger 03:35
No Stranger (SIUDMAK / JIOVINO) You prance around Your emptiness held high Little darling do no wrong You enter with a smile Never leaving your backyard Pampered as you breathe You stomp you whine and you still crawl We bow your Majesty Spoiled rotten you've been Easy load your song Never caring what side of the road your on Never pleading bare no fault Believing all is free Silver spooned you want it all We bow your Majesty Your no stranger in my eyes Rock the cradle There's no free rides after final feed Your no stranger in my eyes Rock the cradle There's no free rides after final feed You prance around Your emptiness held high Little darling do no wrong You enter with a smile Spoiled rotten you've been Easy load your song Never pleading bare no fault Believing all is free Silver spooned you want it all We bow your Majesty Your no stranger in my eyes Rock the cradle No free rides Your no stranger in my eyes Rock the cradle.

Feel Me 02:56
Feel me (SIUDMAK / JIOVINO / ALEXANDER) I stand alone Blood stains my hands Surrounding dilated eyes Oh why they ask why To take a life This loaded gun still fills my hand The hours expire As they wait to pick through my bones Surprised at me I'm they're social disease rotting away at the core Don't you feel me Don't you see me Don't you feel me Don't you see me I stand alone Blood stains my hands Surrounding dilated eyes Oh why they ask why To take a life This loaded gun still fill my hand Don't you feel me Don't you see me

Someday 05:35
Someday (SIUDMAK / JIOVINO) Snows no longer white Rain burns through the trees Suns brilliance black No longer bright One seed of life for all to breed So we must save all in time Someday, Someday We'll share a new life Someday Someday We"ll leave this all behind Someday Birds belong in flight Poisoned all the sea Our children trapped What sort of life Can they survive in our disease So we must save all in time Someday, Someday We'll share a new life Someday Someday We'll leave this all behind Someday Someday We'll leave this all behind Someday

Urgency 04:17
Urgency (JIOVINO / SIUDMAK) Memories of you Rush into my mind Images flash back so real It is hard not to cry I always believed That you understood Just how I felt about you Do you hear what we say In our heart We are never without you The beat is pounding harder Then this broken heart will take I can feel the sweat is rolling down This tired hardened face Powered by remission We all combine as one Rising to conviction The triumph has been won We can't hesitate To open up our minds Till the urgency arrives We can't hesitate To open up our minds Till the urgency arrives

Gone with the Season (SIUDMAK / JIOVINO / ALEXANDER) Gone with the seasons I've lost you in his eyes a blaze It's you that I want that I'll have This is where your heart will stay I feel the evil spinning me around Her heart of hardened steel Shot down in shame Fall to my knees Have mercy I've been Offered sacrificed to you Gone with the seasons I've lost you in his eyes a blaze It's you that I want that I'll have This is where your heart will stay I feel the evil spinning me around Her heart of hardened steel Shot down in shame Fall to my knees Have mercy I've been Offered sacrificed to you Hold my hand Recite the rhyme Sirens howl behold his shrine Bleed my soul his sovereign rule Will be the end of me Subsiding fool Fall to my knees Have mercy I've been Offered sacrificed to you Fall to my knees Have mercy I've been Offered sacrificed to you Hold my hand Recite the rhyme Sirens howl behold his shrine Bleed my soul his sovereign rule Will be the end of me Subsiding fool.....

Hell Cries 06:36
Hell Cries ( SIUDMAK / JIOVINO ) Blessed be thy own soul Blessed be thy own Blessed be thy own soul Blessed be thy own In single file we form a line To purify our soul We break the bread and drink the wine To make the body whole We're made to feel it isn't right To go astray walk free So what is wrong if you and I Decide to go alone I walk alone Classified when to confide Crucified saving mankind From his fall And when his judgment call Reviled reality Hell Cries Blessed be thy own soul Blessed be thy own Blessed be thy own soul Blessed be thy own I'll patronize I know the lines My copulated end To do or not consistently I am my only friend I'm sick and tired of all the norm Who made it real not me So who are you who has no sight To ever lecture me I walk alone Classified when to confide Crucified saving mankind From his fall And when his judgment call Reviled reality Hell Cries Blessed be thy own soul Blessed be thy own Blessed be thy own soul Blessed be thy own You have a clue or maybe two You be direct with me The hollow pain goes deep inside of knowing what will be I take a step back and observe This ignorance in tow Your taken down a closer look A vegetable to grow

Cool Fire 04:40
COOL FIRE The cool fire reaches out And finds you where you hide It keeps you still and warm To poison you inside The flashing images Of how it’s meant to be The world that they’ve created Is hell for you and me Strike me down, put out my eyes Are you LA Gods or movie lies? Either innocence or vile guilt Write it well, to the hilt Judge me, judge me, I can’t wait To pay admission, learn my fate I can make it, don’t know when… I won’t exist till CNN! (Chorus) Station by station The comatose nation Tell me the next game to play Channel by channel Remote control panel I need to know just what to say Satellite babies Spreading like rabies Big screen with Dolby surround Eye to the sky We’ll watch till we die Then plug us right into the ground We’ve been connected Swallowed in the tide The more they fill us up We empty out inside They tell us how to vote Lead us to the booth What of integrity, honesty and truth? Block the truth and push the pain From numb to death, stop the train Newsman, newsman, make up face Collect your paycheck, kill your race How much garbage did you fake To have your change for change’s sake? Make assumptions, cast my type Go for ratings, feed the hype (Repeat Chorus)

PLATINUM returned to Hell's Kitchen Music to record more material over the next year or so. Those additional tracks include ‘Casualty of War’, ‘Cool Fire’, ‘Bought and Sold’ and ‘Oppressions Touch’.During this period they would also lay down pre-production tracks for their anticipated 2nd release for Rising Sun Records.

PLATINUM also recorded nine new tracks live at SST (Studios,Systems and Transport) Soundstage in Weehawken, NJ.recorded and engineered by owner and industry icon John Hanti. These tracks were a one-take live recording and encompass the majority of the tracks featured on “VANITAS”
