Track Name: Godhunter
Rumors heard
From a little black bird
The edges of a prophecy
The pieces I have learned
Said the daughter of the reaper
Has been searching for the keeper
And I fear she'll let me burn
Locked tight up
In the tower on top
Of the domain of humanity
The godhood that I've earned
When you're holding on to majesty
You'd fear the hunt, a travesty
That balance may return


When you're sinful to the bone
Unholy
And you've claimed yourself a throne
Like me
Wield power of your own
Making
Godhunter's gonna hunt you down
If you're something more than flesh
Ascended
And you've taken on the rest
To end it
Then she'll find you in a dream
Tormented
Godhunter's gonna hunt you down

Fear confined
To the depths of my mind
For what could be such a threat to me
The conqueror of time
Yet the whispers of a reckoning
Have kept the spirits beckoning
To look upon my crime
Blood and war
When the world is no more
She's been watching for a century
With hatred, and with scorn
If you know the hunter's coming
Then you hide or keep on running
'Cause she's slain the gods before

Don't let her see your power in the daylight
Don't let her see it when you bring the storm
To the master of the eldritch she's a growing bed of thorns
Dark cults, leaders of the night,
Tell the tales of a fright
From a ghost of the future days
A holy crusade
On the gods decayed
To end our violent ways
Lost kings, fallen in the mist
Made their names on a list
And the hunt was carried through
A price for the past
When your name is last
And the hunter comes for you

Of all the free
She has none left but me
And my loyal knights have passed with time
A god and a throne, locked up all alone
In the kingdom I called mine
Dreams of a being
From the watcher unseen
Now he warned me she'll come to take his due
"The hate in your head, she has more" he said
"The godhunter waits for you"
Track Name: Red Water Dreams
Take me to the water
Where the river meets the sea
Let the memory of rising tide
Come washing over me
I saw fire consume the trusting
With the victims still naive
And so they bleed
And so they bleed
Take me to the tower
Where false gods reside in peace
Let them wither from the inside
Watch their adoration cease
Now with no more heroes left
To cull the chaff among the streets
The gates release
The gates release

Sing in grief, a requiem
The curse of our millennium
These souls keep whispering from the river beds
An end to all these violent means
Alive in these red water dreams
Their haunted burdens stirring in my head
On streets still running red

Vicious thoughts are stirring
And I hunger for their power
Just to taste the opportunity
To watch the elders cower
When the waters fall below the ruins
They'll see their final hour
But rain still showers
The rain still showers
Take me as the vessel
To infect the whole charade
I've come much too far to accept
This society they've made
In the corner of the wasteland
Under storms of acid rain
The last remain
The last remain

Most went in the flood
A few were martyred by the flames
Yet those who unleashed the waters
Are still guilty all the same
When the ignorance of puppets
Serves the master's larger game
They let it rain
They let it rain
When I gain the chance to rise
I'll find the light in their cold eyes
Or lose myself and carry out revenge
The righteous hunt has just begun
The dimming of the bleeding sun
Will let these waters run clear once again
Track Name: Lost Boys (feat. Moonraccoon)
Days in neverland grow darker
The forbidden moments come
To a hasty resolution
When the battle starts with one

Through the crooked lies
As the conflict dies
Oh, their words have tied our tongues together
These words have tied our tongues
We've been left behind
Blamed and made to fight
But these lost boys won't stay young forever
These lost boys won't stay young

Overlooked, denied
Shamed for trying to find
Reasons for the violent answers
Young but unafraid
A massive voice awaits
Holding up to higher standards

With the seekers apprehended
It's desperate time for truth
In the war for information
The ammunition comes from you

Balance shifts
May the world be fixed
When the words we use still matter, matter
And bold faced lies are shattered, shattered
Break the cage
Bring us this new age
When we hold ground when we know it, know it
Make liars afraid to show it, show it
Carry on the heavy load
You've tread upon the longest road
And they won't let you stop until the end
Choose your words, think carefully
Their patterns of dishonesty
Are no match for your reason to contend
Track Name: Way of the Strong
The wind sings the longest tune
Adrift under the ashen moon
The road ahead has an unforgiving toll
I've journeyed to where I stand
A ghost among the far-off lands
Survive against the fire and the cold

Walk in the deepest of footprints
Step into the fog
Breaking the silence
A threatening song
On the trail of the ancients
The demons awake
At the end of all evil
The battleground shakes
To the sound of the metal
The splinters of bone
In a war with the summoned
The soldiers of stone
As the vessel of guardians
I follow along
With the words of the wise
In the way of the strong

Follow
Step into the fog
Follow
A threatening song
Follow
We're carried along
Follow
The way of the strong

The mountains moving as night falls
In the shadows I hear demons crawl
No fear of death, just fear of something worse
A power comes from the west
Upturning all the dead that rest
Still holding on to the burdens of their curse

One goal in mind
A soul to find
Taken by a madman
Trapped within the deepest of these cursed lands
They'll scatter when
I rise again
The spirit keeps the focus
Even when the battle's odds are hopeless
Track Name: Too Late for a Savior
Never too late for changes
Never too late to move
With the barriers down
There is nothing left to prove
Then you're never too far to look back
At the vengeance or the fall
When there's nothing else left
But to take your curtain call

Give the ending just a little flavor
If you're going down, they'll break as well
'Cause it's too late for a savior
But it's never too late for hell

Never too late for madness
Never too late for death
As the towers rise
I will stand with bated breath
Now there's no one left to hurt us
And there's no one left to save
At the ending of all
It's the silence that I crave

Give the ending just a little flavor
If you're seeing ghosts they'll face the same
'Cause you're never going to be the savior
But a leader keeps the monsters sane
Lift the burdens of the weak away now
Let the many become the few
'Cause it's never too late for mercy
To let the red tides rise to you

Never too late for secrets
Never too late to hide
Build the barriers up
Let no one else inside
Heroes can't save the future
And no one can change the past
You'd need the hands of a god
Just to make this city last

Give the ending just a little flavor
If you're seeing ghosts they'll face the same
'Cause you're never going to be the savior
But a leader keeps the monsters sane
Lift the burdens of the weak away now
Let the many become the few
'Cause it's never too late for mercy
To let the red tides rise to you

Bring the fire when they call you "traitor"
If you're going down, they'll break as well
To the ones who don't deserve a savior
They've been ruined by the rebel yell
Take the suffering and plague away now
Let the madness become the truth
'Cause it's never too late for mercy
When the red tides rise to you

As power tends
Toward violent ends
I'll choose to give up nothing
'Cause it's too late to be the hero
And it's too late to see the truth
I'm exempt of absolution
But it's never too late for you

Bring the fire (It's never too late)
Bring the rain (It's never too late)
Grant desires (It's never too late)
Numb the pain (It's never too late)
Bring the fire (It's never too late)
Bring the rain (It's never too late)
Grant desires (It's never too late)
It's never too late for you
Track Name: Signed on for a Sequel
I begged
the world to heal its scars again
As I cried into oblivion
And the victims passed me by
I said
The curse has kept us spiraling
While the desperate keep on rioting
And the greedy plea with lies
One more summer
And yet another
While the more things change they stay the same
Apathetic inaction
Is gaining traction
When the lost don't play they lose the game

Don't fade out, we'll go off script
The last scene's behind our silent lips
We're signed on for a sequel
But nobody's seen the first act
Seen the first act
Of a hundred stories just like yours
Through the history of an endless war
They've come back
Signed on for a sequel
But nobody's seen the first act
Seen the first act before

And I wept
For the future of humanity
To be free of this insanity
Where the lessons learned repeat
I sent
A message to the least of us
That the greedy are carnivorous
And that hatred fears defeat
One more summer
And yet another
While the more things change they stay the same
Apathetic inaction
Is gaining traction
When the lost don't play they lose the game

And our eyes consume the world today
Just as if the past has been erased
So don't run away, don't run away from time
There's a cycle of our symmetry
As a sign that history will repeat
So start looking back, start looking back to find
All the tragedies we've tried to mend
All the selfish acts with violent ends
We don't learn a thing from conflict
So it finds us once again
Track Name: All Hallows
Still air, the harvest moon in the sky
Fools scared of their supernatural demise
Raised hair on the back of your neck
Tells you something is lurking tonight
The hymns of the October wind are howling through the trees
The sun sets on a night to bring the bravest to their knees
A thin divide is lifted letting spirits through the fray
When shadows fall the beasts have come to scare us all away

Dark saints
All hallows
The villains hunt before they're off to the gallows on a
Cursed night
A bone chiller
Cover your eyes, 'cause you're living a thriller

Red feast, of bounty for violent delights
Released from hell and its unending spite
One breach, every hundred years
To let the masked reign the living with fright
A ravenous monstrosity to put Lovecraft to shame
When horrors born with countless eyes, arise without a name
The living and the citizens once mourned but fear the dead
Those fiends have come for vengeance, and will bury them instead

The spirits and the whispers stir, the shadows come alive
The dead ones in their sleep no longer pressured to abide
Free reign, for those between the veil
Held tight within a harrowing tale
Lights out, hide on this unholy eve
When the mortal boundaries fail
Track Name: Pop Cult Crucifixion
Culture of the righteous
A church of stolen souls
You built a network of the outrage
To further push your calloused goals
Wars won on the airwaves
Battles wage on the screen
It's like you're hungry for disaster
Just to be the first one on the scene

Now your ink is bleeding red
The headlines are going dead
You're spinning records
So you can spin the truth a little
To sell off what's in our heads
Keep the vultures well fed
You're playing checkers
With our ears stuck right in the middle

Built to feed the ego
Set to starve the mind
Diluted information
To sprinkle doubt into a lie
Dreams implied of riches
To make us greedy too
You called your message the messiah
And the crucifixion's coming soon

Think you can save us
Make me feel famous
Free from the dangerous
All in my head
Feed on the end times
Rigging the headlines
Like we're a goldmine
To be misled
It's time we test you
Let you confess to
Trying to rescue
Us from the truth
Fact versus fiction
Bloodthirsty visions
The crucifixion
Releasing our view

Pop cult crucifixion
Pop cult crucifixion
We need a pop cult crucifixion
Pop cult crucifixion
Track Name: The Longest Road
Sticks and stones took a toll on me
But they aren't your strongest weaponry
You can take your shots but you best prepare
I can see smoke rising in the air
Every move has a counter act
To turn the tides with a planned attack
You push me down, and the rest will rise
But first I'm singing a battle cry

Fuses burn and wheels will turn
The ones who lie will never learn
It's all been done a dozen times
The ones who lie pay for their crimes
Now it's time to tell the truth
The darkest hearts aren't bulletproof
The guns are drawn and your weakness showed
The path to war is the longest road

Scars and wounds from the battleground
Mark the moments that our drive was found
I've been beaten down in ages past
And I have seen how long the fire will last
Fleeting thoughts don't take the prize
And I've seen the doubt within your eyes
When the movement comes and the people rise
I'll be the first one leading the battle cry

Spent centuries forgetting
This bloodstained path you're setting
You know I've seen it all before
Those with the constitution
To stand for revolution
Write what the future has in store
Don't hide the lies we can see
Don't feed the fire within me
You strike me down and I'll be rising once again
Don't doubt the fear that you know
Don't miss what history shows
The war path will lead us to your end
Track Name: Whenever it Rains
Just like a memory the sun fades away
Remembering the warmth of a much brighter day
Alone I've been wondering, how long has it been?
The ash of the red sky has fallen again
I've lost track of time passed and wept through the years
But still I can feel you, the cause of my tears
If somehow you're listening, I'll go back to find
The clear, brightest sun, and a home to call mine

But why do I think of you whenever it rains?
When the sky starts to wash away all these stains
I'm sorry it's been so long since everything changed
Why do I hear you in all of my dreams?
The storm clouds keep pushing my heart to extremes
So when will the thunder cry out your name?
I feel you around me, whenever it rains

When in the darkness, I think of your light
And the words you said in our desperate nights
Here comes the lightning, to keep you in mind
Bridging all the space left between you and I
I stand in the river to wash me away
Flooded with the memories of the midnight rain
To tell you I'm sorry I'd walk through the flames
Instead I'm afraid of forgetting your name

Words that I held as true
Time will erase
And yet I still think of you
To feel my heart break
The pain is still worth it for all of the love remembered
Goodness you found in me
Washes away
Hope in disparity
Fades now to grey
From all of the storm clouds concealing the light we treasured

And yet I still think of you
With everything falling through
And yet I still think of you
In rivers of endless blue
Alone here I think of you
And our world was turned askew
In darkness I think of you
Whenever it rains
Track Name: A Castle on the Sea
Modern times have never looked bleaker
And I've seen the darkest ages of life
Your death has come around to haunt you
And your madness has supplied the strife
Now I've broken all the rules I've written
Just to bring you to this cold fort between
Your ailing home and afterlife's wither
A bastion only seen in your dreams

Through the black
I've seen you before
Knocking on a forbidden door
If you seek this madness in truth
Take my soul bestowed unto you

If you've got a way of survival
Possess the power to save your home
My failure as a god is total
As I watch over a land of bones
Now I've broken all the rules I've written
Just to bring you to this cold fort between
Your ailing home and afterlife's wither
A bastion only seen in your dreams

Through the black
I've seen you before
Knocking on a forbidden door
If you seek this madness in truth
Take my soul bestowed unto you

Take a minute to think
You've been brought to the brink
Of existence to save the population
Floods and nuclear fire
Kept the times looking dire
Now's the chance to redeem civilization
Yet a risk is attached
With this unholy pact
If forsaken I'll come from the shadows
Let your madness be quelled
Live a legend to tell
Make the best of the end, and what follows

With no other choices
And quieting voices
I'd never expected
To be disconnected
To sacrifice all
To hold off the fall
For a world I don't trust
We do what we must

So I'll lend you my essence
For your rusted throne
And you could bring back the light
To the last home
Of civilization
Without which I'm gone
So take this godsoul to bring forth a new dawn
I'll forgive the death you've earned
The cities you've burned
The lessons we've learned
For all that remains, just sacrifice me
I'll hide away in a castle on the sea
Track Name: Endgame
I don't want to be the last one alive
Facing all the wreckage of my pride and sadness
Now the culmination will soon arrive
Forming in the cosmos, one dark scheme of madness

We've never seen a fight like this
Universal power amiss
Cheating nature in a grasp for power
Seeking balance with this stand
Now the culling is at hand
And we've awoken in our final hour

When every hero falls out of the sky
And all we can muster is a desperate try
We stand in the crossfire, eyes ready and wide
Playing the endgame, at last unified
For the weak to survive

Greater than the odds, higher than the stakes
One shot to change the course, with no room for mistakes
Bound with stronger will, in the hands of time
So where's the pawn that turns the tide and keeps the game alive?

Now we're the bastion in the storm
Split apart but uniform
I'll give everything to wane this power
Facing threats to every soul
We've approached a hopeless goal
Fighting headstrong in our final hour

When there were none
To hold infinite power
When the game was young
And victory was ours
I had seen the edge of fate beyond
And knew one day it would respond
In dust
Set in stone
Despite the distant thunder
With our vision gone
And our heroes losing numbers
If the moment comes to pay the price
I'll take the lead and roll the dice
To save the most defenseless among us
