Track Name: Memories
MEMORIES

Can’t you see
How easily
Everything
Falls through my
Finger tips?
Like a silver tongue
Through satin lips?

I'm suffering!
You're smothering!

Thoughts aside
I'll never abide
Open wide
Slip inside
My body's tense
My mind is fried!


I know!
I'll never find a time
Where hope’s alive
Through my chaotic memory.

Crazily
How everything
Is questioning
Menacing!
The truth
Of my every move
Is a mystery?

Thoughts aside
I'll never abide
An open wide
Slip inside
My body's tense
My mind is fried!

I know!
I'll never find a time
Where hope’s alive
Through my chaotic memory.
Track Name: Being
BEING

Something tells me
I've left my body behind.
I can feel the stings of conscience
burrowing beneath my eyes.
Grasping shaded shadows reaching through the glass

Pull me
Deeper
Into this void of flames.
Pulls me,
Deeper,
Into this sea of names.

And I stand in waiting,
Hoping to find,
The pieces of my,
Own being.
Woe!

Binding!
Bound by blood
To this oath of soil.
Dying!
Tribulation's come to boil.
Perilous road to ruin,
Turning every stone,

Pulls me
Deeper
Into this void of flames.
Pulls me,
Deeper,
Into this sea of names.

And I stand in waiting,
Hoping to find,
The pieces of my,
Own being.
Woe!

And I,
Know that everything I've seen
Will take me,
Break me,
And make me surrender my will to
Resist temptation's Lullabies
And try to insist that I
Assume the fault and folly Of the men
Who've drained the waters
within the River Styx.
Track Name: Pink Cloud
Her body lies
Cold and motionless.
Suspended, confined within her mind,
Her comatose body a sign.

Don't let your pink clouds
Stand in your way.
Cause you know
Those clever vices
Will wash away your pain.

Her body lies
Awake but cold
To the touch.
Sickening sweat
Soaks her dress and head,
Leaving her body
For the dead.

Don't let your pink clouds
Stand in your way.
Cause you know
Those clever vices
Will wash away your pain.

Weaving webs
Consume your flesh.
Chasing shadows
Beneath your bed.

Soothing Lullabies
Soothing Lullabies

Whispering Death
Enchants deceit
Chasing shadows
Beneath your feet.
Track Name: Arbiter
I know you’ve
Cursed the darkness
Yet failed to question
The logic behind The things that bind
The lies to truth.
And you sacrificed
Their blood among
The sun and moon.
You let the bodies
Stench the streets with
Acrid disease.

Ignorantly
You dispense your misery.
Upon hypocrisy.
You lost your faith in me.

I’m of the divine
Arbiter
Of the decline
Of men who
Are destined to dine
In the bowels of hell.

You’ve broken your oath
You're guilty and alone
To the people back home
You’ve reaped
What you’ve sewn.

You're an evil vile tyrant
Sev’ring limb from limb
The people you vowed
To protect from
Malicious intent.
You fooled no one, No how, no way.
Your first-world blood lusting
Let miasma run rampant Across the ramparts,
You glutton for destruction!

Ignorantly
You dispense your misery.
Upon hypocrisy.
You lost your faith in me.

You’ve broken your oath
You're guilty and alone
To the people back home
You have reaped what you’ve sewn.

Dearly, you will pay.
Dearly, you will pay.
Track Name: Order of No Quarter
I saw how everything
Crumbled to the ground
And washed the sun out.
And I heard how everything
Rumbled with the sound
Of the holy and devout.

Nothing’s left behind my eyes.
No light, no signs, No heart, no mind.
Thoughts emerge But I’m still blind.
No light, no signs, No heart, no mind.

I felt how everything
Shook my very being
And tore my heart out.
And I could taste
How everything
Soured with the screams
Of the holy and devout.

Nothing’s left behind my eyes.
No light, no signs, No heart, no mind.
Thoughts emerge But I’m still blind.
No light, no signs, No heart, no mind.

I am one with my own body
Separated flesh from bone.
Strengths survive
My winding mind.
Dragging my thoughts
Close behind.
May the tempests
Rain upon your graves
And soil the honor 
For which you’ve Placed your name!
Track Name: Atrocities
Beneath honest eyes
Sinners dine upon the lies
Spat from the mouths of fools
Who’ve promised sovereign rule.
Beleaguering the truth
Oh, the seeds have taken root
In the blood soaked soil.
Blood soaked soil!

Envious need
Hideous breed
Insidious greed
Devouring…

I now bear witness
To atrocities
Plagues that devour our vanity.

Avarice and ecstasy
Are forever governing
Injustice for the fools
Who’ve promised sovereign rule.
Gasping gaping mouths
Gnash and scream and shout.
And the noise drives them mad.
The noise drives them mad!

Envious need
Hideous breed
Insidious greed
Devouring…

I now bear witness
To atrocities
Plagues that devour our vanity.

Now you know
Everything happened
For reasons beyond your control.
For want of a better way,
It all led you astray.
And tore you from the Earth
And right into your graves.
Cause you all knew,
There was nothin' you could save.
