DJ Fazbear To say that Godhunter and I haven't had a complicated releationship would be an understatement, as from when it originally released in January 2019 I didn't enjoy it as much compared to other fans but nower days I enjoy every track simply due to the amazing Instrumental album (Of which I am yet to purchase) [Date of writing Dec 2020] Favorite track: The Longest Road.

Godhunter 05:54
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"

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

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

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

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

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

All Hallows 04:48
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

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

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

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

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

Endgame 07:08
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
