Shapeless, shifting void The sanctum of the weary and the paranoid A source of untold fears Helpless to observe Beyond my understanding my own soul's unnerved With music to my ears What horrors have I dreamt of Will I shudder if I stare Am I strong enough to transcend Am I brave enough to dare Is my fragile psyche faded Have I sunken to the deep The forbidden world allures me Beyond the wall of sleep Summoned now in rest Both foolish and enlightened are unkindly blessed To witness the obscure Fleeting glimpse of death The horrors still consume me with my every breath A specter's scar so pure Running wild in the night In our dreams we take flight But where to do we run When the nightmare's begun Are these faces of mine Or do they hide behind The sleeping surface Keys to know the unknown Every life, every stone But what soul pays the cost When you learn from the lost What awaits in the dark If you dream with a spark To invite a disturbance
To The Grave 05:55
Deep in the mist I can feel something there A touch of the soul like the wind in your hair  There's a light in the dark but it's just so far away While we storm heaven's gates And we heal our mistakes The fear could take us over But we heal in the light And we gather our might To find our spirit's closure  So we fall again We come together When the pieces fall apart They last forever With a prayer to fill our hearts And to keep us brave Our eternity A circle holding us between The threads of life This cursed reality Has doomed us with new purpose  As spirits bound in service to the grave Where some wander aimless and some quest for more In traces of kingdoms, the ruins of before We consider the cost And we're fighting to survive While we cross through the rift Our ethereal gift Will leave us shells no longer With the whispers in mind Of the demon inside We end our failures stronger Something has eclipsed this land Covered by an unseen hand Suddenly in death we've found another kind of life Trodden under kings and queens We inherit greater means Power of the souls, now repurposed for our plight Demons from an ancient time Rise up from the filth and grime Soon we face the storm, but in numbers we stand strong Blessed with a kiss from the unholy light To get up when we miss and after we've died The battle will be ours, but the war is fighting on So we rise again We stand together Like million lights aflame They burn forever With a song to guide us home And to keep us sane For eternity We're searching onward In the afterlife of Earth Our bones in ashes But we fight it all in wonder And we'll face it with each other to the grave
Black Roses 06:03
Children joyful dancing in the sun With a blissful ignorance of what's to come When the guardsmen start to struggle And the barriers give way We're broken and we wither in the fray We are husks Alive but barely breathing Sometimes we pull ourselves together But our efforts fade away We are dust Crumbling by the moment We try to push away the ending And black roses fall the same Running off afraid of what's to come When you're facing down the barrel of the lawman's gun But the saints have learned the secret And the rebels know the same We're killing just to bury our remains Preludes of every stanza End on repeating notes A tale of woe and sadness Chorus of silent throats We try and keep a memory Transcribing every line But when they turn to ashes We perish slaves to time Burned out on borrowed moments Used up like cigarettes We feel our time expiring But it's not over yet  Each finds a meager purpose Though our cold grave awaits We face the morbid beauty Of our collective fate We are flawed Chained to the laws of nature I guess we'll have to teach each other To leave legends to our names
Enshrined By an ocean divine Waiting for the truth to come alive Before your own accursed eyes The call The end of it all Death lingers endlessly below Awaiting mankind's fall It comes at last From ages past The madness below Beyond all that we know Will arise Nightmares foretold From days of old The secrets we keep And the dreams of the deep Realized The end Of the sane world of men Now I question all that I have seen I this is a specter or a dream Embraced By those with the taste For insight forgotten long ago Of futures laid to waste And in the waves we wander Searching for our end Now our vessel's going under And an epitaph is penned With the sunken gateway opened Soon the sea reclaims And when the dark has spoken We will know its cursed name
Outside 07:16
It is my own home's affliction Behind bars within a cage I've been marked the plague's possession And I've been locked in for days There's a ruckus in the streets Those I begged to stay inside Soon the noise gives way to silence For a moonlit lullaby Oh my mind, Oh my mind, Thoughts are fleeting all the time I feel bones begin to splinter As my fever starts to climb Who's to blame, Who's to blame For the blood that wrought this shame Now my ears have started ringing To a symphony of pain My blood's contagion Brings transformation But all I want before the doom Is to see the streets outside this room Don't leave me waiting My lantern's fading And I won't be awake to see The monster that becomes of me Let me see the sky one last time Come home and take me outside The new beast is isolation When I'm haunting my own home I feel my walls closing inward And my soul leaves me alone Here I struggle in the darkness To remember my own name I've caught glimpses through the window That the world is not the same Flesh and bone Hunger's grown Cries become an endless drone I fear soon I'll be the hunted Like the multitudes below Someone's there Someone's there Night is coming and I'm scared Starving wolves outside are howling And I join them in their prayer Dark signs Flashing in my Cold mind Succumbing now with no time Left to cure the pain Pale and Clawing blindly Life still Clinging tightly But my own blood has been claimed
Here we're frenzied by the illusion We're dying for a transfusion A cure to kill the virus in our midst This city needs a savior Healed by the church's favor Experimental taste of moonlight's bliss First blood From cosmic wonders A dark flood Of power from under Congregate and we begin the recovery Praise be The gods have fallen Fear me And heal the rotten Summon the choir for we've made a discovery Now the surgery is complete And mortality is defeated The needles grant the power in our veins Brought by the holy hunters Old ones and dreams of thunder A sacrifice within the flames Though the treatments take their toll I've changed the human soul This is power beyond control Sing for newly granted eyes And dreams now realized For the righteous and divine
We tried to drink the ocean when the rivers went dry Our desperation feeds and keeps our demons alive We walk along with nothing left to lose To suffer in the darkness or to live with the kings Our choices are presented as intangible things The chains assure our hands can't break away We ride the cycle up and down We bend the knee to a different crown Made in America In America Made in america American dreamers waking up afraid That they are relics of a golden age Made in America America Made in america American made Look and you can see it in the print on the page They codified the system an invisible cage But we outnumber, and our strength is wild Don't deny our future the luxurious rage The structures are upended when we engage You hold the means to make it all worthwhile Sold on lies like liberty Just to find that freedom isn't free You can try to keep on playing But the players never win Cities built on taken land Where they own the new world built with our hands But now you can change the state we're living in
Die With You 04:50
A feeling like we know We've made it far enough No shame in letting go Across a nation's bones Still barely clinging to Some distant, broken home Still awake through 'Til the end of line When the rain falls And the searchlights shine It's going to take a miracle  to find our way I will find you On the precipice Gonna crawl through If it comes to this We were never going to make it anyway So I think I want to die with you today No matter where it lies Together to the end The light around us dies We're sick of asking why We've never had a choice In the falling of our time Stranded embers on a long dead street We strive in silence with naught to eat The creeping blackness takes our will no more And we take our exit through an open door
Wartorn 04:17
With strength like the Atlantic wind We ready for a storm The call to rise as champions Starts where our kingdom's born With iron on our battered skin And anger in our bones We'll die to serve this petty crown Protect this fragile throne Set your eyes On the fire in the sky Seems the war is neverending 'Til the true king sits on high Our birthright Taken swiftly in the night We write history as immortals May our nation never die The blood spilled on these clover fields Will run into the sea Where we will take the reaches back With brave camaraderie Though brethren low have fallen We have will to carry on To build up on the ashes of Old lies and broken bonds We put our fear away We heal after the break And announce our victory We claim this land as ours We fight under the stars To embrace this destiny We gather To push further Not just madness Not just murder For safety Together Our kingdom Forever
Born of the darkness From granted eyes beyond Dreams of the deep mist They hide a scratching song There's a primal fear That death is near Writhing now in wait Am I past the veil Consciousness failing I hear a wicked fate Can you hear it? Can you hear it? The tolls of madness ringing Do you fear it? Do you fear it? An ancient choir is singing All consuming Calling to me In a dream, it's a thorn I can't dig out Can't you hear it too? If you listen close now Lulled to the madness I have seen what I can't know Glimpsed at a nightmare To fester and to grow In this empty home Of flesh and bone A presence left unseen Laying awake in bed My hollowed head will Call back through the dream I feel it humming deep inside the walls The dark vibrations Whispered acts unspeakable, horrible, reachable, audible I'm pressured to awaken my own sight To generations Ancient ones malevolent, reckoning, pestilent, beckoning
There's someone that you once loved I'm sorry I can't be You hold a ghost of me My thoughts they tend to travel To where I lost my soul And my darkest days repeat And you know That I want you Even though I push you further away But my scars Push my fears through And I hold you like a silver grenade I've tried to find the answer To resurrect my heart To go back to the start Sometimes the human starts to wake up And I see the wreck I am When you're still a work of art Will you set yourself free When the cold regret is all that I can see Will you show me to bleed How to recapture the essence that is me I promise I've tried But guilt and fear cloud my vision Every decision Now I know it's my fault But if you hold me closer The pain feels over For now
We Evolve 07:03
The noise has settled down Before the storm arises A never ending climb No road to run away We're scared to keep on fighting We're running out of time Fractured skies and acid rain We are sent unknown Temples high in trails of pain For a moonlit throne The hourglass avails So haste must beat temptation The dream we're living out Is not imagination Across a living tomb We fight wholly outnumbered To swiftly face our doom And face the cosmic thunder Fractured skies and acid rain We are sent unknown Temples high in trails of pain For a moonlit throne Take a look across the hordes If you don't trust me Our nightmares will evolve And so must we The chemicals They settle in The atmosphere Breaches my skin And there is not one ally left alive This time, this time The planet's wrath A natural will Against the test Adapted skill When the odds overwhelm us we survive
I've been feeling kind of down Feeling like I'm going to drown Guess I think I need a new fixation Need experimental eyes Just to feel the other side And experience a close sensation You know, this earthly world gets lonely I want a surreal trip to haunt me We're all just searching for that lasting mental spark When it hits you know it sticks And then your soul has hit its mark Ascending from this plane to walk along the sky But you need the supernatural For that haunting kind of high Delve a little in the deep Grab a piece of hell to keep Wanna creep into a new dimension Warm possession by the fire Now it gets my spirit higher And my mind embraces the connection Fill my psychoactive mind Bullet proof and armor lined Make me stronger, hold me closer Make me shine Leave a whisper in my brain Take the pressure take the pain This nirvana makes me wanna Go insane Take my being out of bounds Show me what the dead have found I can feel the rush just behind me Make me feel a spectral love It's a wicked potent drug With it you could make my blood almighty I need the haunting kind of high That makes me feel alive The haunting kind of high Like you're never gonna die The haunting kind of high The devils dropping by The mortal spirit's cry Like the fire in your eyes
