Track Name: Honor Guide Me!
March on my brothers in arms, to the fields of which we forfeit our lives. Let the stench of blood fuel your lungs and bloodlust. Due west be our enemies. Can you see the oceans of spears? Can you taste the fear in the air as we bring war? Form ranks and sound the charge! We press on to meet our fates and prize! To glorious ends and our path to ascension! They surround us, no telling if we will live or die but by our blades they will lay! The trials among us are only obstacles played by our minds and our heavy hearts. Honor guide me! Bless the blade that kisses flesh, that hastens death. Bring rise to the flames! Let these worms see their demise! Nothing but darkness leads me now. The silence of the fallen fields. Though honor claimed, the soul is lost. Until we are here again. March on my brothers in arms, to the fields of which we forfeit our lives. Let the stench of blood fuel your lungs and bloodlust. Due east be our enemies. Can you see the oceans of spears? Can you taste the fear in the air as we bring war? The sounding charge,such music to my ears. The shrilling screams bring me home, and as the day drags on well stack the bodies high to let our rivals know of our resolve and our unending thirst to see the lights leave their eyes. Oh noble dead, who now lay among these battlefields, be forgotten not. The crowds will sing upon our return of darkened days lightened by our edges swung, and the vanquished slayed in valor, and the courage forged in night. When no end of this doom is in
sight. I see the vultures circle. I see the murders of crows. The valley painted in red. This blood on our hands must be washed by another's life, by another's life. Those who live by the sword perish, and those who die by the blade dream no more.
Track Name: Lycan
As day fades to night I am horrified to see what Ive become. Once a man, now a shell of my former self and the beast within stirs with sleepless will, and I am hopeless to stop his unholy wrath. I hide in shadows to not be seen, a specter throughout the thickening mist cast out from a life that I once knew and loved. The beast within stirs with sleepless will, and I am hopeless to stop this unholy wrath. What powers in me were left by the gods unchecked? Gone, as creeping night it dies it leaves me petrified and numb, and howling at the moon. What curses lurk inside this tainted blood that reeks of murder in the dark? The mirror on the wall reveals behind my burning eyes, and whats tearing under flesh. The time to accept what I am is becoming to hard to bear. This monster that I veil. Gone, as creeping night it dies it leaves me petrified and numb, and howling at the moon. What curses lurk inside this tainted blood that reeks of murder in the dark? My dreams, they turn to most horrible thoughts, where content, is this void filled by hunger.. The need to feed on the children of man! The time has come to stare upon the sky. To catch a glimpse of the curse that fills my veins. This monster that is bred from me is beginning to take control. The feral one comes, and he brings doom. I will feast upon your wretched hearts.
Track Name: The Rise
We drew the lines in time. We built and renewed. We defined our existence to reign supreme, untested, to reconstruct our lies. The fires of hell reach long for the souls that remain. The lives left scattered on the surface. Break the seals for judgement, to sever ties, to burn inside. Servants, oh people of the light, your time has come to fall. Replacing you with our wicked minds, we've come to take control and feed your souls with a steadfast hate to corrupt and drain, the blood that flows in all, and to silence the righteous voice. Cancerous clouds from the skies will shield the sun. The earth will quake and tremble. Death from above, will sheet all the lands and loam like rain. This world will serve us in chains.In chains. We are the ones that own you, you are all fucking slaves! Bow to your conquerors! No use in you resisting, you are all fucking slaves! Time to erase and feed! The fires shall empower the rise of oppressors, and the men who live to see the world burn. Burn! Cancerous clouds from the skies will shield the sun, the earth will quake and tremble. death from above, will sheet all the lands and loam like rain. This world will serve us in chains as long as we, rule all the people, superior powers, our vile regime reigns immortal! We drew the lines in time. We built and renewed. We redefined our existence to reign supreme, untested, to reconstruct our lies.
Track Name: Signs
They say we're the last to see these days, to fill these chains, to share these bonds. We fear the coming of the dawn, and change that follows the tides that man has made. The void we create inside ourselves can never be filled without knowing why. Our lives, are we not all the same, or is it easier to brand what we dread? Our world, this place engulfed in our bloodshed, is our arrogant attempt at controlling what we are. So now we take our shots in the dark to justify the reasons, but this is who we are, endlessly crawling. Now we leave ourselves in divide in spite of all this suffering, but this is who we are, breathlessly calling, while leaving others to the flood. Where are all the signs? Will it ever change or turn around,or could it be we've already fallen? Are we left here to stand all alone? Do we stand our ground? We're losing sight and we're out of mind as we begin to see it spiraling down. Converging will to spark the inner flame that is never ending, amassing prowess to decimate our fear We look onward for the sunrise to come but we're never moving on. Our lives, are we not all the same, or is it easier to brand what we dread? Our world, this place engulfed in our bloodshed, is our arrogant attempt at controlling what we are. It all repeats as if theres no insight to all we've murdered to retain our designs. We wait for the signs. Deliver us We're are all the same, but will we change before its too late? Devoured, enslaved to malice. Unchain us! Deliver us from our damnation! Unleash us from our fate!
Track Name: The Harvest
All will be seen undone, and then they came from above, riding on the wings of flames,on the thrones of incomprehensible beasts shining like the dying starlight. Plagues to make the lands void. Time will be set to a crawl, the air will feel too thin to breathe. Their poisons dispensed at their commands will leach the lights from your eyes as the process begins to unfold. Liquify the minds sight. Devour knowledge unfit to retain. All will be left in ruin, no trace will be left of our existence. The corpses will feed, give sustenance to, our destroyer. The oceans will be filled by our blood and then the cycle will repeat again. Slowly, the earth begins to rebuild and renew the process. The seeds are sown, the air moves unstagnent. The fetal sickness is left to evolve. All the faces look the same, unique to false illusions, bred like animals, contained, to feed the worm. Left to see what we become, a product grown to consume, forever silenced and damned to remain. We're damned to remain. And they come to to devour, feasting on our flesh and bone, to nourish and build their own kinds, to assimilate into our worlds. All we have seen undone. time will become unknown, the air won't be for us to breathe, and the skies will be terraformed, and turn into a lucid dream. All will be left in horror our world will see its end, and our blood will fill the oceans as our flesh is consumed.
Track Name: Into the Rabbit Hole
The bell doth toll, the ringing stings in the vacant mind. A feeling all too real of my impending end, but I digress. Abhorrent one, who are you to claim reign of me, to judicate my sins to condemn my life? But oh this chamber speaks to me. The walls, they breathe and sing their twisted psalms, blood hymns, consumes where darkness creeps. In the voids will I wake, reborn, enlightened? Was I left to remain, chained to this lifeless cage? Will I rise from the depths, prevail unbroken, or will this abyss bring me to meet my early grave? Do I not see the rain turned glass? The shards that stab, unrelenting pain. Like winters cold, the swarming chills, there will be no warmth to comfort me. But oh this chamber speaks to me. The walls, they breathe and sing their twisted psalms, blood hymns, consumes where darkness creeps. In the voids will I wake, reborn, enlightened? Was I left to remain, chained to this lifeless cage? Will I rise from the depths, prevail unbroken, or will this abyss bring me to meet my early grave? These stars that I see, the lights that now fade, they're calling my name. Though their voices seem to be the least welcoming. The pulse is starting to slow, the rhythm deranged. The means to an end that I never planned on becoming. Gone. In my tomb I will dwell, down the rabbit hole deeper still. I am the sleeper who dreams, the lidless eye thats stirring. An empty vessel to fill by my demons, and my haunting past. The ignorance bred from a confused mind and the will to peer. I am the reason you hunt for light. I am the reason you hide in fear when the dusk shrouds this lifeless earth.
Track Name: Dante
Souls divided among the rulers, they take their fill and send them to the gates. Across the rivers of mindless cadavers, the ferryman reaches out his hand to escort the dead, to make way to oblivion. Across the rivers of mindless cadavers, where those that swim are damned. Nightmarish sights, that keep me haunted in mind, will be my bane in this hellish place. Who has condemned me and sent me here, to rot inside? Was I not redeemed, intended to rise again, forgiven of my sin? My child of the fey, there is no light or redeeming your end. You're mine to command. Your god has abandoned you and left you to burn away. You're mine to command. Faith has deceived me, misguided us all, designed to keep in line while evil sends plagues of greed, lust, and wrath to devour the world and steal the souls of the pure and righteous. To devour the world. Down to the hell, to the hell that awaits you. Down to the hell, to the hell that awaits you now.
Track Name: Tyrant
Born to be a symbol of forsaken paths of life, I strive to let it end or be the bringer of its doom. An empty vessel and a soulless mind I move, containing weaker men to act upon my baneful wills. I pray to nothing and no one, birthed unto this world to devour all, so get the fuck in line and do what you're told! Your days are numbered and I live to savor the means of my dominion of you. The last of your lines will live to see all its children bound in unyielding chains. The seas are endless, the waves in forming mass. One race with one purpose. And all will be complete. My moment to rise. Our moment to take control. Born to be a symbol of forsaken paths of life, I strive to let it end or be the bringer of its doom. An empty vessel and a soulless mind I move, containing weaker men to act upon my baneful wills. I am the end that you fear. Tyranny to bind and slave, tyranny to bind you fucking slaves. Now we control your lives we define your whole existence to ensure our gains. Now we control your lives, we define your whole existence to ensure our gains.. And all will be complete. My moment to rise. My moment to take control.
Track Name: Monster (Part III)
It's all a lie, It's all alive. Let me try to understand this. Let me see this from your point of view. Everything is yours to keep and the lives of all are none of your concern. To you we're bottom feeders, to you we're born for the slaughter, everyone is here to die and your means to an end is just the plan in play. So when this comes to pass, will it be your hand on the trigger, to prey upon the hopeless? In your eyes, to see the millions screaming. All the millions who line the streets and gaze upon the shameful crown thats yours to bear, will you fear the burning glares of hate? All the millions who breathe the lies, who never make it through the night. The pieces set in line, and pawns have made their move to be the driving force of this power they can't contain. They know not what they do but the march will carry on to unredeemable ends, even with no prize in sight. The pieces set in line, and pawns have made their move to be the driving force of this power they can't contain or conceive. Feeding into the guile, feeding into a downward spiral. Feeding into the guile into the hands, into the hands of control. Playing into game, falsely placing the blame, only dividing. It's all a lie, It's all alive. Let me try to understand this. Let me see this from your point of view. Everything is yours to keep and the lives of all are none of your concern. To you we're bottom feeders, to you we're born for the slaughter, everyone is here to die and your means to an end is just the plan in play. So when this comes to pass, will it be your hand on the trigger, to prey upon the hopeless? Is this all a part of your plan to seize this world, and drown all hope with fear and pain. Will you bring us to our knees and build the cage that destroys our dreams and breaks the child? Will you be the one they tell us to behold, that bears the mark of the beasts of old? Are you the end they foresaw, the final doom to return us to the grave and end all our faith in this life?
