Track Name: The Third Death
It's too cold to be alone
Pulling heartstrings from tombstones
She stands above Your broken bones
You killed her, you animals

But none
deserve the blame
Misfortune and fate
This skeleton
too far to face
Her ghost
fading away

I need your warmth,
the sun was never enough
above your corpse
She stands, and bleeds your love

Every year you die a little more
Track Name: Wicker
I've been dragging this ghost down the road all alone
it's all that I have ever known
can't pierce the fog against the smoke
been working my hands to the bone to find home

there is nothing and nowhere
that means anything to me
Just corrosion and desolate
bleak conformity
hollowed out,
empty and worn
Devouring
everything I've learned

Ghostwalker
God laid to rest
No hope beyond the gates of hell

I stand in the shadow of your fallen god
Become a god myself

Temples to our failures
All of it all will sink into the sand
Erase his name
Track Name: Enslaved
Will you suffer?
Will you bleed?
Build your machine, piece by piece
Will you sweat?
From the heat
Return to shade, fearfully

Washing the blood from your hands
You will never be saved

Will you give in
Will you see
All your pain
Meant nothing

Washing the blood from your hands
You will never be saved

Destroy the home built by liars and cowards
You will never see

No savior without sacrifice
No war without blood
No savior without sacrifice
No war without blood
Track Name: Unending Violence
Hanging the blue
begin anew
Violence against
A power absolute
Clenched jaws of law
Fear at the heart
Fed to the maw
Bleed black

You have nothing
left to lose
Tonight we fit
Fit the the noose

I stand against the law of the land
I stand behind my fellow man
I stand to crush steel in my hand
I am not just another victim

Violence again,
stained red,
marching
Fear shows,
your hand,
your guilt,
our land

Nothing left to lose
Cut your own noose
Track Name: Gears
Infused in
my skeleton
This machine
won't let me sleep
Time corrodes
everything
I’ve lost my mind and memories

Lullaby of grinding gears
They spark and cry false melodies

pull the rope tight
I hold my heart just right
keep my neck straight with my spine
I won't be alright
I'll never be alright
keep telling myself that I will be just fine

If a field of glass is what you want
I'll lay you down where I used to haunt
Tie my hands and hang me from the highest tree
I'll know then what it means to be free
Track Name: Foundation
Burn the cold world,
before we freeze
I won't be satisfied
until there’s nothing
Ashes where I stood,
smiling
Reveling
in your suffering

Give in, this is the end
Ashes on the horizon

Hail to the blackened earth
we walk on
Guilty are we that carry on
Like lovers we have come and gone

Hold you close as we
freeze together
Push you away
as we thaw
with a world cold
as it is
I can't help
but destroy it all

The cumulative blood we have all washed from our hands will fill the oceans, emptied as its water boiled to steam. We should be ashamed.

Give in, embrace the end
Ashes on the horizon
No god will save you
No master savior
Stand up, build your foundation
Give in, this is the end
Stand up, build your foundation
Track Name: Godrot
His muscles twitch, my gums will bleed
The rodents swarm at his rotting feet

The sharpened edge of this broken glass
Reflecting heat of smoke and ash

I carve his heart
from his chest
Devour it
Lay God to rest
Track Name: Lord Of Decay
Fear, paralyzed
I'm gripped with the guilt of a thousand lies
Giving my last goodbyes
I live with the fear that we all live to die
Live to die

Longing, seething, mindless, empty
This is tyranny alive

Bleed us for life
Leech in the night
Falling away
Lord of decay

Sustained in strife
Forget your pride

Killing the dream
Pulling the leash
Falling away
Lord of decay
Track Name: Sorrow Of The Gods
Born of my father's fire
And my mother's heart
from the darkness, the sorrow
That ripped us apart

Blackened shroud
Offers no way out
No way out

This is where I lay my roots down
Dead branches reach out to forgotten truth

Born in fallen shadow
Of demonic flame
I would boil the ocean
to hold you again

Our venom will kill us
March us to the grave
Serpent's tongues counting out our final days
