Track Name: Puppets
Sow the reigns into the skull
We all know what will become of us now
Just close your eyes and listen
Don't worry about the world outside

Pull the strings and speak the words of the free
We're all free, so just listen to me

How can we bring ourselves to pull away
Every chance we get, the puppeteer will play
Speak to the masses, make them bow and pray
Don't worry about anything: tomorrow's just another day

All hail the puppet

Seek enlightenment to break this disillusion
There's more to the book than just a page
Our destiny is ours
Our fate is ours

Slaves: all you were meant to be
You all belong to me
Slaves; there's no need for apathy
You have always belonged to me

All hail the puppet master
Track Name: Warborn [The Black Dahlia Murder cover]
Amidst a swirling din of smoke and screaming on the battlefield
Reared on the teat of my dead mother war
Hardened to stone through abuse; mocked beaten and scorned
A bayonet-severed umbilical cord

The wind sings its sweet lullaby through
A black and hollowed ribcage
I'm to die in battle divine with the flames as my grave

This realm of inhuman carnage
Where the blood eternally rains
To my brothers who've fallen before me
I will walk with you again

[Lead: Josh Noble-Astridge]

This is my demented playground
The horizon is howling ablaze
A skeletal village illuminates the sky
As fire destroys their grains
With glee, I rape and torture
My pleasure is inflicting pain
With a vigor unholy, I'll fight to my doom
Till I've vanquished the Christian God's ways

Oh, it must be such a different world
To which those on the outside exist
At least I know who loves me here
No delusions: all weakness dismissed
An era of inhuman tragedy
To be ushered by my iron hand
The ovens bellowed to crematory highs
To dispose of the god-fearing man
