Subterfuge 04:00
SUBTERFUGE The blood you seek is out there, On the frayed edges of town Just point your boots, and follow... Your rotten heart Walk without guiding hands With a big stick, through promised land In a world without shame Set fire to all who admit no blame A disease of rage and denial When the darkness moves, better know how to burn No escape from disease… With a big stick, through promised land Never had to dig much dirt to find fear The scent is enraging Under the moon, the moves that you make… Are subterfuge, baby Now listen to the sound of your mind… Being quietly blown Lights up the soul and kills the night… All night, that's right A disease of rage and denial When the darkness moves, better know how to burn No escape from the sound… Of your mind being quietly blown Blow them all away Your closest friend, the enemy

NOW I SEE YOU In the age of the Great Deception The mask worn, grins and lies Holds pain where it cuts deep Hidden thoughts, deceptive eyes And we sing… Though the tortured souls Still scream for mercy… I can see you I can see you, now Maybe there is no true self Just a barren, hollow core I see the dead underneath sometimes, And I fucking shake So we sing… Though the day is vile, And the road is filled with war I can see you I can see you The hidden man demonic he may be The hidden man tells darker truth All the mocking laughter, And the threats within… Make him lethal The mask of sanity, begins to slip away I can see you I can see you, now I can see you Here I come

THE GHOST NARRATIVE When I arise, I know the ghosts... I share this life with are awake again They are always, close to my side They provide me with the answers… I never got from you They tell me all the codes They offer all the keys… To lock all the doors, for good Live in two worlds at the same time But they are not synched, they phase Never had control, ever Cut the same deals, shook the same hands Now I wait for them I can hear them breathe They are speaking right now They tell me all the codes They offer all the keys… To lock all the doors, for good I can hear them breathe They speak to me

Temple 07:36
TEMPLE You approach in silence A sign of grim respect Understanding that the will of gods… Considers not the common man Everywhere is darkness and stone A massive door yields Never alone, the undead rattle their bones… About wars you never win, And all the hidden sin But still you crawl Desperate, to get back in There was nowhere left to run A hard road lead you here A place of Worship, a place of Faith A Temple… To keep you safe To watch over you With shaking fingers, you trace memories… Etched into these walls Their lessons go unsaid, their truth… It clings to you Solemn eyes, lost in pitch Seek grace, without light Faithful servitude to a Master Who allows no sight There was nowhere left to run A hard road lead you here A place of Worship, a place of Faith A Temple… To keep you safe To watch over you Monuments built over lifetimes Bodies drop, more will fall A collection of damage… And skin ripped raw This is a church, this is a refuge This is where you go to die Fall from exhaustion, nothing left...

CENTRIFUGAL DISASTER Head down, to grind out another day Consume or be consumed The world heaves under the weight of our existence A population siphoned from, stretched beyond all reason Exploit everything for a fraction of what it’s worth Rallying cry of modern Man: “Give me convienience, or give me Death” So the trap is set And we walk right through it Profit, in the guise of progress and economic growth But everything has a ceiling, it can’t grow forever A race that no one wins, incineration until the end Sedated and confident that the world should come to us… And it does Centrifugal disaster The world spins faster, and faster, and faster Spin it, until it stops Extinction process Greed, the fatal flaw We just pull the noose…tighter The pace is suicidal And it never slows The sheer volume of souls will eclipse our grasp Finite resources raped, infrastructure collapse And we let them, while we trip the light fantastic And when you have nothing left to take, no one will care… So let’s go Centrifugal Disaster The world spins faster, and faster, and faster Spin it, until it stops Extinction process Greed, the fatal flaw We just pull the noose…tighter

Maelstrom 06:07
MAELSTROM With glazed eyes, we have watched forever disappear Now seasons fail to change The layers of misdirection that kept us warm at night Now slowly are revealed The image does not change if you look away Maelstrom, the reckoning We know that we can’t go back The end of the road is well in sight We’re just trying to stay ahead of the moon, now Just trying to stay ahead of the night As the rivers rise and mix with tears from our eyes Choke back pointless screams We break everything, all in time Broken hearts, broken minds Maelstrom, the reckoning We know that we can’t go back The end of the road is well in sight We’re just trying to stay ahead of the moon, now Just trying to stay ahead of the final black night Nothing is forever We follow vessels of corruption that drift… Then are quickly gone The seas will wash away our sins, rising… From the outside, in Nothing is forever, nothing is ever free Time it will not wait, it swallows all our destinies Nothing is forever, nothing is forever Nothing is free

Castaway 06:55
CASTAWAY Black waves that hammer the shore The icy mist whips and churns The years fell away… Some stayed as long as they dared Most left to brave the seas All gone, one remains… This place is spirit extinction Every season, lose more ground The flesh from bone …And the wind blows wicked cold ‘round here Endless days into endless nights None return, out of sight Just the long dead voices, That beckon me home “Come back to me, come back…” Another storm rips at the land The treeline is torn away No shelter from the rain… Should have left when hope still shone This island sinks into the sea This flesh, this bone …And the wind blows wicked cold ‘round here Endless nights into endless days No more reasons, castaway Just the long dead voices, That beckon me home… “Come back to me, come back…”
