Track Name: Red Giant
Open up my rib cage
Fill my lungs till I can't breathe
You fill the room with static
And I am drowning underneath

You are dead language
You speak in tongues
You are the silent void
Leeching the light from the sun

I gaze into your abyss
and you swallow me
Track Name: Fire And Iron
You laugh deep in the knowledge
The sun may never rise again and
That fire and iron will never break your skin
A boy turned man, a man to beast and
You'll bleed the earth dry and take all that you need

You tasters of blood
Your hammer swings on the weaker ones
Track Name: Creation Myths
You made us
And then you left us alone
To rot away in these cells of flesh and bone
Left blind to wander
Across this barren land

Every star in the sky is a watching eye
You put the fear of god in us
Every star in the sky is a watching eye
You put the fear of god in us

Am I blessed or am I cursed?
Holy blood, holy words
A new wielder of the lash
For every day that has passed
A new sorrow, heavier
Heavier than, heavier than the last
Track Name: Lethe
Bones of this town rot and rust
On bloody knees, turn to dust
Disappear
Disappear

No one will remember us
We are meaningless

Drowning in the Lethe
Filled our hearts with lead
Black lungs full of blood
There's no heaven for our dead

No one will remember us
We are meaningless

Welcome home
Track Name: 96
How long
How long can you run from
The wolves are snapping at you heels
The old guard is dead
There's no one left to save your head
And every single moment, of every single day
Leads you ever closer to a jail cell or a grave

Can you still smell the blood?


Do you fear the judgement passed on your soul?
For all of the lives your cowardice stole
They paid the price in flesh not in gold
The crown of a liar rests on your soul
Track Name: Haldol
Muscles ache and burn
Bones push through my skin
I haven't seen the sun in months
Never will again

I lost myself again

Me and my demons strapped to a bed
Stranger in a uniform going through my head
Me and my demons strapped to a bed
Holy war inside my head
Track Name: Who Put Bella In The Wych Elm?
I count my blessings on your severed fingers
A life unlived, but you float and linger
I feel you when I sleep
You break the skin of every dream

And the earth won't take you back
Carrion now for the worms and rats
The earth won't take you back
Carrion now for the worms and rats
Worms and rats

You choke the words in my throat and I still hear you
In the difference between unsaid and unspoken
You are the darkness of dead space but i still see you
In the difference between the breaking and the broken
Every sleepless night, I still feel you
In the difference between the martyred and forsaken
I'm trying to bury you

Sight no more but you still see
Every time I breathe you're breathing with me
I'm trying to bury you

I'm trying

I'm trying to bury you
Track Name: Pale Death
Days come and days pass
From flesh and blood to bone and ash

Time
Time
Time crushes in

Justice equal for master and slave
Justice equal in a grave

Time
Time
Time crushes in on us all

Pale death
with impartial tread
Beats at the poor man's cottage door
And at the palace of the kings
Pale death with impartial tread
Beats at the poor man's cottage door
And at the palace of the kings

Pale Death
