Track Name: Stormclouds [ft. Landforge]
I've had enough,
I've tried for years to please and abide by the rules
and done my utmost to control the fates and turn the tides
of the war that you constantly rage against me.
Every step, every corner, I am met with another wall
build from the jealousy and spite you have come to associate with me.


One day, I'll stop caring and I'll stop trying to appease you.
I will turn away and I'll leave the tattered remains
of your strength and supremicy in a smoltering hot ash pile.


The flames will purify my restless soul in a midnight ritual
of dark smoke and blackened words, and so one day I will never
remember the scars you've cause me.


Filling veils of blood made from the ends of humanity, of us all.
Black eyes and blank souls depart and dissipate,
like the sun amongst a horizon of grey clouds of sorrow.
So, what's your bullshit excuse?


Perhaps, one day, life will go back to the way it was,
Complete with our golden shores and sun made of magnificent golden glass.


But, for now, each day darkens
And the grey clouds of sorrow rain over the horizons
As the thunderstorm of hatred and shame loom in the distance.

[Lead: Jak Noble]
[Lead: Stephan Carter]

Go, try it, I'm stronger now than you can ever believe,
the only friend you have is your desire of hatred and pain
when I'm gone who will you turn to?
It's over, take your pathetic self away from me and cast yourself
over the edge of the world.


Standing on the shoreline
as your world decays into nothingness
Finally, you'll glance upon the beauty of the last sunset
you will ever see.
Track Name: Poison the Skies
Lay waste to the oceans, throw out all remaining visage.
Hang indifference upon that almighty holy gallow's pole.
Close your eyes, throw with hope,
Open the lids to see everything fall to ruin.
Such is the mysticism of our beliefs.

What else could happen, if we follow false idols.
What else could happen, take to the skies.

Throw your spears, kill the light,
We'll all poison the skies tonight.
Breathing the toxins that we so gladly made,
From our spite, from our hate,
'We can change ourselves'
No, It's far too late, and we've gone too far.

Time is running out,
I can smell it in the air
And when I gaze into the stars,
I see nothing but hollow promises,
And failures of a million generations.
See through the lies, and allow all flesh
To welcome the cold blade

I'd rather cut my fucking wrists
And watch my glistening blood fall to the dirt
Than raise my fist and praise the
majesty of this pathetic and worthless world.

Throw your spears, kill the light,
We'll all poison the skies tonight.
Breathing the toxins that we have so gladly made,
From our spite, from our hate,
'We can change ourselves'.
No, It's far too late, and we've gone too far.

Welcome the fate that we have come to create.
Open your eyes to the lies we accept.
Cut the black tongues from the puppet masters of this world.
Cut the strings and break the hold that religion commands.

Break the hold of this one world government.
Open your eyes to the lies we accept.
Cut the black tongues, from the puppet masters of this world.

What else could happen, if we follow false idols.
What else could happen, take to the skies.

[Lead: Josh Noble-Astridge]
Throw your spears, kill the light,
We'll all poison the skies tonight.
Breathing the toxins that we so gladly made,
From our spite, from our hate,
'We can change ourselves'
No, It's far too late, and we've gone too far.

I'd rather cut my fucking wrists
And watch my glistening blood fall to the dirt
I'd rather cut my fucking wrists.
Track Name: Shadows of Promises
From water's fall,
the sunlight glistens upon the ripples,
a broken miracle, burnt into my mind
like echoes of one thousand voices that ring through my head.

Eternity's beginning,
at the first hint of darkenss, I remember the words spoken.
Shadows of promises cast stormclouds overhead,
while your vile words scream through the air
and poison the veils of righteousness.

Perfection's end, my awakening.
Facing the truths of unending lies,
broken vows mask the coming of the dawn.

Mountainsides wilt in the hand of winter,
stretched out over centuries,
waiting for peace to rain down from the heavens
like meteorfire burning the vastness of the world.

Everything spoken are nothing but words,
meaningless, frail,
as they break against the rocks upon the shore.

Rejoice, for you have broken me.
Track Name: Veiled Eyes
'Darkness take me'
A solemn promise to the endless living.
From the sun's glare, a life begins with the phoenix' tear.
While upon the darkness of moonless night,
life is torn apart by shadows of murderers and rapists.

Trembling through the times where the darkness of closing your eyes
is more humbling and welcoming than the darkness of seeing
the world in a cold truth of revelations.

In the one hand, we could stand here with the holiest of vows,
the other, madness of a blood crazed devourer.

Times like these, when all is naught but ash,
why do we keep our oaths?
When darkness invades and seeps through the cracks,
slowly taking control of the minority that is humankind.

In darkness the world seems more beautiful,
But only if the bloodied skin is pulled over our eyes.
[Bass Leads: Jak Noble]
Track Name: A Council in the Dark
From a golden tower, I sit and wait,
perched on my throne upon the highest point,
staring with my blackened eyes.

I have witnessed the world tear itself apart
and attempt to redefine the figureless shadows into
an age of prosperity and fortitude founded with paper bricks,
doused and cemented with tears shed and ripped from the eyes
of an age populated by dishonest and mindless children.

In a night of broken glass and bloodshed,
an alliance of kings brought to it's knees.

Centuries passed, and we waited.
The atrocities of a desperate man turned this world
inside out, we just sat and waited.

It's become all to clear,
the eyes of this council have never faltered,
keeping watch over this uneasy peace
with blood red gaze,
piercing through every heart of every man,
We just sat and waited.

But you've gone too far this time,
the age of conspiracy and fear mongering has finished.
We waited with open mind, but now,
it's time to descend onto an unknowing world.

Smoke has billowed to the skies and the embers
left from rumourmills have blocked out the magnificence
of the sun.

Mankind sought to end our reign of peace through means of banishment and anarchy,
but we wait no longer.

When you look to the clouds,
you will see the demise and grand finale of the human race.
Bouts of madness will stem through every mind,
and missiles of spite will fall to the ground.

Don't worry, my children, you should've always known.
In my castle, I am king.
Track Name: Pandora
A perfect existance
laid to rest, by the acts of simple curiousity
One being, created by the rules of Gods
enriched with the talents of millions.

The simple vessel, forged to hold all of what we fear,
governed by a worthy soul, thought to be uncorruptable.
What have we become?

Look through into the future of Earth,
every turn of the head reveals,
through the mist and fog,
Conflict, and death.

Human instinct.
It bought down the world.
in a matter of moments,
the blackness seeped into the atmosphere,
and so it was written,
Imperfection.

[Lead: Josh Noble-Astridge]

Nights have become so dark,
that not even the brightest can penetrate it's curtain.

[Lead: Josh Noble-Astridge]

I cannot think,
and cannot see,
apart from the light at the end of this chasm,
that beckons to me.
Track Name: Angelic
We are the servants of our holy lord,
standing and judging over an inferior species.
Created with perfect intentions,
only to be corrupted by our hatred of the human race.

Stories of grandeur and splendor virally spread
throughout the teachings and scriptures like wildfire,
and we will always be loved for our beauty.

Wings that spread over the vastness of eternity,
elegant grace shining through the darkness,
lighting the darkest corners of all.

You have been sorely misled.

In your dreams, you see the darkest of things,
and the flesh hanging from the marrow of it's bones.
The yellow teeth barely it's gritted smile of insanity,
and mutilation.
All you can do is cower in the corner of the room.

Take apart the mask, and you'll see
the abomination and the thread bearer.

Bring us down to our knees,
and sever our perfect white wings.
Rip the skin apart and reform us,
into what we truly are.

Stare in awe at what you believed,
to be the most perfect things in existance.

I remember, in your sleep,
sitting in the darkest cell, watching you.
My yellow eyes so faint, and fearful,
piercing your soul.
You will always be my slave.

I am your guardian angel,
and believe me, we will meet again,
When the time comes.

When you lie staring at the greyness of the clouds,
body bleeding and soul broken.
close your eyes, and wish your life away.
My decrepit hand will reach out,
and guide you away.

[Lead: Josh Noble-Astridge]
Track Name: The End of All Things
And so we deny,
hanging upon the foundations
of this home built from the solacy,
from the hatred you seethed for your entire existence.

Blackened noose hanging your reddening neck,
breathe out the spite.

Worlds crumbled at your feet,
just as your life crumbles below your body
into the depths of the darkness that awaits.

This is the end,
If only we could turn the clockhand back,
Release, forget, redeem.
So let nothingness arise, and claim its place
at the end of all things.
Track Name: Outro
Worlds crumbled at your feet,
just as your life crumbles below your body
into the depths of the darkness that awaits.
