Track Name: White
I'm walking amongst,
My feeble brethren,
I've left all their flesh behind,
I stand alone,
In a sea of corpses,
Their blood stained memories are mine.
Life is draining ever faster,
I'm trapped alone in a sea of human misery,
Contagious is my reckless abandon,
Disregard what you were.
Your will is feeble from their hatred,
Just another brainless meat machine,
Bred by the suffering of god's kingdom,
Never again,
Will our scars be left to rot in ruin
Take your life into your hands.
Heroes led our people to the horrors history lived,
Lying to the masses,
The punishment of our kin.
Until fear, no longer defines our fate,
We will rise,
Against the enemy that is mankind,
Until fear, no longer defines our strength,
We will rise,
Against the enemy that is mankind.
We are all feeble,
We carry your pain.
You act without question,
You forsake us all,
Your blood stained memories are mine.

Solo (Nesh)

I've witnessed the damage,
That is caused by time
Bodies robbed of their strength
Sanity eaten
Disregard their wasted excuse for inhuman suffering
Horrors pulse lurking,
In the depths of our black planet.
Why do we wait to die?
Free yourself from this mortal disease,
Inflicted by the design of man.
Heroes led our people to the horrors history lived,
Lying to the masses,
The punishment of our kin.
Until fear, no longer defines our fate,
We will rise,
Against the enemy that is mankind,
Until fear, no longer defines our fate,
We will rise,
Against the enemy that is mankind.
Until fear, no longer defines us.
Track Name: Between Worlds
Ashes cast and mouth sewn shut,
You can't let this come between us.
What if I was the victor?
What if all your spoils were mine?
Do you remember when you thought your life made sense?
Now we are frozen in misery, drain,
Me of my essence, so I am strong,
Once more.
We always ended up right back where we had started,
Chasing our demons away,
Our noiseless voices screeching through the silence.
I watched you change.
Oh, if we were only,
Painted by our hopes and dreams.
All this time that you stole,
Would be irrelevant.
If we could do nothing but stop and think,
Stubbing the ashes of the new millennium
All this time that you stole.
Would be irrelevant.
I watched them reshape you,
Taunting me with your arrogance.
You spent your time, hiding from the machines,
Hoping their dreams wouldn't taint you.
They covered your body with silence,
Anchors holding your flesh together,
Warping the darkness behind your eyes,
Regardless, I'm on fire.
I sat staring watching the smoke,
As if nobody had seen us,
Maybe we'll wake up in a city far away,
Leave all our flesh behind.

Solo (Claxton)

We always ended up right back where we had started,
Chasing our demons away,
Our noiseless voices, screeching through the silence.
I watched you turn, against me leaving,
Me breathless and alone.

Solo (Collett)
Track Name: Black
Cleanse me of the past,
Break all remains,
Pierce the flesh,
Our twisted minds wander,
Searching for redemption.
Blacken our future with malice,
I seek not freedom,
The demons are burning my flesh,
Rewrite my fate, the end is now.
I am not yet strong enough to bear,
The weight of your disease,
Wrap your arms around me,
Give me the strength that I need.
I am not yet strong enough to bear,
The weight of your disease,
Wrap your arms around me,
Give me the strength that I need.
Break, Raze, Kill, Maim,
Steal the life inside of the me,
Break, Raze, Kill, Maim,,
Rewrite my fate, the end is now.
I am not yet strong enough to bear,
The weight of your disease,
Wrap your arms around me,
Give me the strength, that I need.
Cleanse me of the past,
Break all remains,
Pierce the flesh,
Our twisted minds wander,
Searching for redemption.
Blacken our future with malice,
I seek not freedom,
The demons are burning my flesh,
Rewrite my fate, the end is now.
Suffocate in solitude,
My tomb-like mind leaks,
Angelic fluid stains my throat.
I am not yet strong enough to bear,
The weight of your disease,
Wrap your arms around me,
Give me the strength, that I need.
I am not yet strong enough to bear,
The weight of your disease,
Wrap your arms around me,
Give me the strength, that I need.
Destroy every living creature who roams,
This black planet.
When will I live forever,
In the dream.
Destroy every living creature who roams,
This black planet.
When will I live forever,
In the dream.
Track Name: Carved In Stone
Hail the destroyer,
King of winters grip,
Hail the destroyer,
Extinguisher of the sun
Hail the destroyer,
King of winters grip,
Hail the destroyer,
Extinguisher of the sun
All remains of humanity,
Shall be exhibited on a stake,
Rise my fallen brethren,
And mend my broken bones,
How many weapons must I create,
Just so you could snap my wings,
Soul devourer,
Become nothing.
Hail the destroyer,
King of winters grip,
Hail the destroyer,
Extinguisher of the sun
Why can't you mend my bones,
Shattered hand of chaos,
You spent, all this time, thinking you could cheat death,
There are no martyrs, there are no heroes,
It's all just false hope.
Yet we forge weapons made of glass,
And we fight soldiers carved in stone,
Tear my flesh apart, and leave my kin for flies.
There is nothing left for me, in this rotten wasteland,
That we once called home,
Now blackened by the light.

Solo (Claxton)

If we forge weapons made of glass,
And we fight soldiers carved in stone
Tear my flesh apart.
If we forge weapons made of glass,
And we fight soldiers carved in stone
Tear my flesh apart.
There is nothing left for me, in this rotten wasteland,
That we once called home,
Now blackened by the light.
Hail the destroyer,
King of winters grip,
Hail the destroyer,
Extinguisher of the sun
Hail the destroyer,
King of winters grip,
Hail the destroyer,
Extinguisher of the sun

Solo (Collett)
Track Name: Chronosphere
Our clock screams backwards,
Endlessly gazing through this faceless rip in the warp,
Peeling back the layers I pounce on a feeble,
Mirror of myself,
Gifted with silence.
A chance to forget,
Still I'm alone,
Tainted by this lonely cosmic dream,
My eyes scream ever forward,
Endlessly gazing through this faceless rip in the warp,
Peeling back the layers,
I pounce on a feeble,
Mirror of myself,
Gifted with silence
A chance to forget,
Still Im alone,
Tainted by this lonely cosmic dream,
My eyes scream ever forward,
Give me the gift of silence,
A chance to forge myself anew.
We are illuminated by the sour,
Bliss that sparks our victory,
Smile you and I,
Are not made to live forever.
We are illuminated by the sour,
Bliss that sparks our victory,
Smile you and I,
Are not made to live forever.
I held your fragile arms,
As our worlds collide,
A swollen composition,
An abomination ravaged by time.

Solo (Collett)

Our clock screams backwards,
Endlessly gazing through this faceless rip in the warp,
Peeling back the layers,
I pounce on a feeble
Mirror of myself,
Gifted with silence
A chance to forget,
Still I'm alone.
Tainted by this lonely dream
My eyes scream ever forward,
Give me the gift of silence,
A chance, to forge myself anew.
