Track Name: Through Hell and High Water
Are we not but parasites
(sights) Behold a warning
Storm is on the rising
Now the sky is turning

Are we facing our end?
Oceans consume where we stand
Destruction of our sovereignty
Demised by our own hand

Feel the ground it’s shaking
Tides ahead are rising

Are we facing our end?
Oceans consume where we stand
Destruction of our sovereignty
Demised by our own hand

Cast to shore by weakened hearts
that loosely take the reigns
Fueled by lust and shallow greed
they find the depths of hate
Profit from the martyred
as their pockets line with stains
Centuries of Tyrants, are we not the same?

Can’t you let me fly |:
The wings of the fallen are not broken |:

Cast to shore by weakened hearts
that loosely take the reigns
Fueled by lust and shallow greed
they find the depths of hate
Profit from the martyred
as their pockets line with stains
Steal from poor to build the rich
as cowards duck in shame

Can’t you let me fly
The wings of the fallen are not broken

Cast to shore by weakened hearts
That loosely take the reigns
Fueled by lust and shallow greed
They find the depths of hate
Profit from the martyred
As their pockets line with stains
Laid to rest by stronger hearts
Then maggots fill their brains

Are we facing our end?
Oceans consume where we stand
Destruction of our sovereignty
Demised by our own hand
Track Name: Serpent
Lying Lucid as my vision slowly dissipates
The poison echoes with my pulse

Lying Lucid as my vision slowly dissipates
The poison slithers in my veins
An endless desert made
from sands of time that bury me
The more I struggle the more I sink

It’s a long hard road, in the serpents hole,
Its a long hard road, when you’re on your own
Send me back, Send me back, Send me back,
Take me home

Perception of this life
rapidly twists in front of me
I watch my flesh decay to bone
Hair and nails grow a morbid
cocoon that en-coffins me
My withered heart now scales over

It’s a long hard road, in the serpents hole, 
Its a long hard road, when you face him alone
Send me back, Send me back, Send me back,
Take me home
Track Name: The Architect
n these last days, my apathy remains
The sky has cleared
But what I’ve feared still reigns

This self-deception has evolved to torture me
This is what I get for staring at the sun
There’s a noose around my neck
But it hasn’t tightened yet
Will I take the fall?

Engulfed within these delusions cave in
The architect of what is left now hangs

This self-deception has evolved to torture me
This is what I get for staring at the sun
There’s a noose around my neck
But it hasn’t tightened yet
Will I take the fall?
Track Name: The Big Goodbye
These words will never reach you.
I shout through space and time.
I’ve found I’m a contradiction, a paradox, a lie.
I cry out, break my voice, a last farewell my dear.
I’m going back to my world turning back the years.

Days and years will pass me by.
Centuries unravel with the blink of an eye.
It's not a question if the answers are written before us,
I know this.
Erase my precious condemned existence,
So without words goodbye.

I’m searching for a meaning,
The seas can’t fill this void.
The hour now approaches,
Death knocks at my door.
I breath out through the fire,
I see my passage clear.
Reuniting with the future,
I’ll meet you in a thousand years.

Days and years will pass me by.
Centuries unravel with the blink of an eye.
It's not a question if the answers are written before us,
I know this.
Erase my precious condemned existence,
So without words goodbye.

I’ll throw away the past as it were dead.
Everything I’ve ever lived for lies ahead.
Close your eye it’s like I’m staring at 
a sky of dying stars.
So I throw away the past as it were dead...

Days and years will pass me by.
Centuries unravel with the blink of an eye.
It's not a question if the answers are written before us,
I know this.
Erase my precious condemned existence,
So without words goodbye.
Track Name: Time Travel Relapse
Father, I’ve lived one thousand years
And now I’ve nearly forgotten who you used to be
Mother, I’ve tried to keep the photographs
but times just keep changing and deteriorating

Like a point blank to the chest 
Time travels through me and nothing’s left
I thought I found a miracle
But it consumes me and I can’t let go

Sister, I hope these tapes will one day reach you
I wish you could see these sights
Its beyond what words describe
Brother, I’ve seen the edge of space and time
The earth has sung its song but life has just begun

Like a point blank to the chest 
Time travels through me and nothing’s left
I thought I found a miracle
But it consumed me and I can’t let go


(ALTERNATE ENDING LYRICS)
Who am I?
Why do I forget this? Why do I forget this?!
Track Name: March of the Heathens
Ovulated, Consummated, Incubated
Everybody grow up
Masturbated, Educated, Inebriated
Everybody throw up
Get in line, Stay on Time, Make a dime
Everybody grow up
Pantomime, Bottom line, It’s a crime

If you want to fight the system put your toys away
Turn around and grab your ankles
You know you’re gonna pay
If you want to fight the system put your toys away
Turn around and grab your ankles
and take it anyway

Take our breath from our lungs
But they will never hold our tongues
Cut our hearts from our chest
But they will never take what’s left

Aggravated, Motivated, Contemplated
I’m about to Blow up
Infuriated, Masticated, Strangulated
I’m about to Blow up
Such a mess, Nothing left, Must Confess
I’m about to Blow up
Building Stress, Motionless, Never rest

If you want to fight the system put your toys away
Turn around and grab your ankles
and take it anyway

Take our breath from our lungs
But they will never hold our tongues
Cut our hearts from our chest
But they will never take what’s left

Life’s a bore, Start a War, Want some more?
Never gonna grow up
Such a chore, Out the Door, Never more
Track Name: Summon
Gather around the fire
Take hands and kiss the spider

Who there beckons in this hour?
Is your premise worth the fire?
Summon shadows from the forrest
Spouting shrills, a horrid chorus
Harnessing my ancient strength
Along with hunger grows my rage

Come forth guardian
We call upon you |:

Now you’ve called upon my service
What do you wish I deed for you?
Toil this long and plot it well
For you fortunes bring you curses

Gather around the fire
Take hands and swallow the spider

Crush your foes and lift you high
Dig you out from all your trenches
Conquer all that stand against you
Lay your burdens down to rest
You’ve won the battle in this hour
Upon your land I now devour

Come forth guardian
We call upon you |:

Gather around the fire
Take hands and consume the spider

Gather around the pyre
All that’s left is ash and fire
Track Name: Celestria
Stop. No more of this. You have a voice now
That they need to hear
(here) this is your heart
You’ve never used it like you will tonight
To set things right like before
Your sacrifice will live on
(On) the first sight of dawn head forth to the mountain line. Now it's your only chance
So will you take it? Will you stand?
Fight for this land, beast verses man
Will you my friend, take my hand?

And the fire spewed out from the mountains
consuming the sun in one breath.
And the earthquakes awakening giants 
come smiting the humans to death
Who will save us? No woman, or man, 
but a child who bears the mark.
He was born amongst death and of famine
But will rise through the ashes to lift us all

Stop. I’ve told you this. You have a voice now
That they need to hear(here) 
It’s your second chance
So will you take it? Will you stand?
Fight for this land beast verses man
Will you my friend, take my hand

So will you stand fight for this land
We claim this land, Celestria!
Track Name: Slower
Not a single star tonight 
and the rain falls with spite
The pain felt like a knife, but a severed heart
is what took this life.

Everybody follow me the killer went this way
You’d better run they’re looking for you
All this time I never knew it was you
Shame on me

She’s breathing slower |:

The killer is me

She’s breathing slower |:
Track Name: Sheltered by Flies
I found myself deep in the wood
The moon unveils a body still

I came across a man who’s breath was absent
Body lifeless, face down in mud
Skin is crawling. Insects feeding
Slowly becoming one with the earth

I found myself deep in the wood
The moon unveils a body still
Bleached with days of acid rain
Sheltered by scavengers

Looking closer I noticed something
familiar in his eyes
My heart’s sinking, I start thinking
That this body is that of my own

I found myself deep in the wood
The moon unveils a body still
Bleached with days of acid rain
Sheltered by scavengers

I saw myself outside my shell
Looking down at my own grave
These figment years of traveling
A dying dream all in vain
