Track Name: Two Legged Hyena
I died
Twice today
Lift these arms
To the sky
Tear the stars
From the heavens

Racing unseen
Battered and bruised
Showing all scars

March on dead sons
Your time is now
When the devil ask you to chase him
You listen well

On his wings
These lifeless things

This letting go
Everything, everything
This letting go
Everything, everything
These lifeless things
Scream their voiceless scream
This letting go
This letting go

You're not ready

Can you ever be
Will you be ready
A monster is needed
The hesitant are dead

Shame the enablers
And the permission givers
Silence doom Sayers
Destroy life traitors

These battles
Are won
These battles
Are won
These battles
Are won
All alone
All alone
Track Name: The Doomed
Changing my pace isn't healthy
A quick boost of speed
A quick burst of speed
A nameless leader
Will soon leave me
Leaderless
Leaderless

A sea of people in front of me
All going
Nowhere
Heading for
Nothing
The doomed

I could run but that would kill me
An instant death
Already shaking my hand
Left alone to my devices
Left alone
To die alone

unflinching
poisoning
Their own veins
Their own veins

The others are blind
With their Dead eyes
No need to see anything at all
Ripped out their own eyes
No need to see anything at all

I wish to see again
I wish to see
I wish to see again
I wish to see

I might not see home again
I might not see home again

I might just see
What I want
Track Name: Sharktopus
Fall soon
Head first into this war
I recant
My oath to be peace keeper

Armies
Sharp tongues stab my throat
The Setting
The sun of my control

My head and heart are at war
Release the demons
Raise the skeletons
My eyes run red with what I know
This dissonance is defining and silencing

Fallen
Head first into this war
I recant
My oath to be peace keeper

This can't end well
This can't end well for any of us
This can't end well
This can't end well for any of us
Involved
Us involved

War
No one will win this war
War
No one will win this war
War
No one will win this war
War
No one
No one
Track Name: Dead Leaf
Save yourself
Leave everything
Save yourself
Leave everything behind

So you've seen the great light
Bloody hands build temples with more bodies
Beast from sea
Sea to seat
Seat of war of ages
A dead generation
Waits to depart

Wait
To depart

Leave us
For dead

Run funds through your helping hands
Cut out the tongues
Emaciated gathering
Fed off the hope

And we will face the beast alone
We will see all seven faces
We will see the razing of cities
That can never be rebuilt

Rain bullets
Onto our own heads
This isn't over
Until we're all dead

Leave everything
Leave everything behind
We can make
Our own end
I promise
I promise
Track Name: Shameful and the Shameless
Cities ablaze
Tonight we ride on fire
Track Name: The Great Devour
This great maw
This great death
This great maw
This great death
Burn the flags they're useless
Raise your head and see
They're all

Soulless
Soulless
Soulless
Soulless

Siege is endless
Wait eternal
Pile the bodies
Burn the bodies

Don't let them rise
They'll take our hearts
Bury them deep
These armored chests
Pale horse will ride
Death astride him
Shelter ourselves
Become forgotten

Hey hey
We're hearing the song everyday
Hey hey
We're singing the song about death
Hey hey
Can't stop this sword with my heart
Hey hey
I'll give it all up for you to run

The seeds of this have been sewn for ages
With every conquered man and every lost woman this has been created
Like the plagues of the past
None of us will escape
None of us can escape

The
Great
Devour

This great Maw
This great death
Track Name: Just Two Weeks
I'm tired
So Terribly tired
I'm shaking
I'm trembling
Alone and cold

I'm on the brink
I'm on the brink
I'm on the brink of giving up

How I've missed clarity
I've longed for solace
Two weeks have just gone by
I hardly noticed

I'm on the brink
I'm on the brink
I'm on the brink of giving up
I'm on the brink
I'm on the brink

Two weeks have just gone by
Sift through the dirt and dust
Two weeks I hardly noticed
Some things just can't be missed

This
This fog

It looms in the air
So thick and so hateful
Making us all
So
Slow
Slow
Slow
Slow
Stop

Go

Never
Never again
By word of god
Show me your hand
Show it
Show it
Show it
Show it
Track Name: Cold Winters And Titty Glitter
One last goodbye
When the moon comes alive
What will stop me first
Barley or gold
What will stop me first
Silver or led
The night
The night sets me free
The night
The night sets me free

From the night comes a beast
We own the night
We own the night
two creatures one soul
We own the night
We own the night

The pursuit
The hunt
Is given life
The moon
It Watches

Howling, calling, scratching, clawing
As we take flight

Just say my name
One last time
Before I leave
Before I go
This last time

One last goodbye

With the ceiling caving in
Above our heads
With the ceiling caving in
Above our heads
We can only live for so long
We can only feast for so long
Enjoy
Our time is up
Track Name: Bad Ideas With Worse Execution
I've had some time to kill
I've had some time to think this through
There is no turning back
Shots fired
At me and you

Savor this moment
It just might be your last
No time for small talk
Save your breath
Save your breath

Won't give you anything
I'd rather die first
Won't give you anything
I'll die right here

This is my last stand
Fill me with hot lead
And take me over
And take me over

Please tell my mother
That I let her down
And take me over
And take me over

This tommy gun says no
This tommy gun
This tommy gun says no
This tommy gun

Won't give you anything
I'd rather die first
Won't give you anything
I'll die right here

This is my last stand
Fill me with hot lead
And take me over
And take me over

This is my last stand
This is my last stand
Please tell my mother
That I let her down
Track Name: Dark Cold Strangle Hold
Until my lungs explode
Until my lungs

Thrown
The sea she will consume me
Drowning
The depths will call I answer

Guide
Guide me stars
No chance of hope in sight
Dark waters
Old faces
Remembering the creaking

Her blackened silk will drag me
For fathoms without end
Embraced with cold arms I cannot resist

Her fingers kill me
Ice my eyes

She demands payment
This gasping breath
She demands payment
My choking breath

She'll save me
She'll save me
I can still breathe

She'll save me
She'll save me
Set my heart free

Take my hand
Please take
Please don't let go

Take my hand

Swimming forever
Sea of the damned

Until my lungs explode
Until my lungs explode

This cold and spray
Ice in my face
These hands that pull
Convincing me to breathe
Under the surface
Under the waves
These hands that pull
Convincing me to breathe in

Until my lungs explode

The swaying and the creaking
Render me
Lifeless and empty
My frozen eyes my watered lungs
Are dying
I'm dying
This sea consumes me
I cannot resist
