Track Name: Sine Metu
Mother, Rip me from this tainted womb
Father, bury me in the sands you call your home
Why would I believe the lie, instead of choke on the truth?
I refuse to be forced to choose between a murder and a lie

She rests sound asleep
Under a blanket of fire
He has souls to keep
And I'm fighting for mine

And now I'm fighting for my soul
And why does it feel like I'm the only one that seems to know??

Brother, is this what we have become?
Sister, by the witch thy will be done again and I, begin to hear the cries
From the ghost of regret
I respect and accept what was and what hasn't happened yet

She rest sound asleep
Under a blanket of fire
He has souls to keep
And I'm fighting for mine

Oh, and now that you've lost your soul
How does it feel to be part of something so dead and fucking hollow?.....

Sine METU
Track Name: Only The Dead...
Sunset in sight
Something wicked comes this way.
A breath from the beast and the smoke from the chains.
I look to the horizon with no time to steal.
Salting my wounds just for something to feel.
Dragged in the light.
Buried in shallow graves,
And not thought of twice

Chorus :
Dead set
Impending death threat
The ending...
Only the dead, only the dead (will ever see)
Only the dead, only the dead (will never need)
Resolve the faults
Only the dead, only the dead (will ever see)
Only the dead, only the dead (will never need!!!)

To conquer a monster you must become the beast.
Casting spells and cursing names and blasphemous beliefs.
Break slow and splintered, left for dead in the winter.
Skin back the layers and begin to see that...

Chorus :

Dead set
Impending death threat
The ending...
Only the dead, only the the dead (will ever see)
Only the dead, only the dead (will never need)
Resolve the faults
Only the dead, only the dead will ever see)
Only the dead, only the dead (will never need)

Dig up the legends, the myths and the tales
Your plan filled with hope has miserably failed
Chasing a demon and gods filled with lies
Pray to them all for your life, and die

Only the dead, will see the end of war.......
Track Name: Jordan
Undertake
Do you pray?...
I find my faith in that there’s no god.
Evil is all that is real.

Who will be there to protect you from the hammers blow?
You will never find any peace on this earth, in this life or the next
With nothing left, you lie there so lifeless
Repent, you will blindly follow anything!!!

We must kill the gods, to save ourselves
We must kill the gods, to save ourselves

Viscera
Taken from
Lie to die, for reasons i cant find
Is that the one way you feel?
Or is it something more, beyond it all
You will never find any peace in the hearts or in the minds

Violence, arrogance, innocence ,consequence, the unconsciousness of mankind
Violence, innocence, consequence, arrogance, the unconsciousness of mankind

We must kill the gods, to save ourselves
We must kill the gods, to save ourselves
We must kill the gods, to save ourselves

Hoping, wishing, praying for something to save me
Waiting, ravings of the mad! (Of the mad)

We must kill the gods, to save ourselves

Kill the gods X2

Bury me six feet deep
No marked graves for all the ones called slave?
Evil is all that is real!
Track Name: Blood Tongue
Hang the rat, hang the rat, hang the rat!!!
What good is that?

Go ahead and sew my mouth shut.
With words like daggers they cut right through the thread.
A man can tell no tales, if he’s already dead.
Loose lips will sink the most ships.
And you’ve already burned every bridge.
And your pathetic lack of spine makes me wanna cringe!!

Chorus x2
I can't speak with blood in my mouth (blood tongue! Blood tongue!)
But I can scream with blood in my mouth!! (Blood tongue, blood tongue!!)

Bite my tongue!! X2

Once they got you on the hook, line, and sinker
The only thing left of you will be memories
Replace your tone from which you’ve learned to speak
This poetry is written in your blood
And it will not be only pen that will bleed
To put it lightly I'm tearing at the seams

Chorus x2
I can't speak with blood in my mouth (blood tongue! Blood tongue!)
But I can scream with blood in my mouth!! (Blood tongue, blood tongue!!)

Bite my tongue!! X2

How can I watch my words, when you can't even see when I speak

Hang the rat! X3
What good is that?...
Track Name: The Cave
Sitting alone in the cave with his soul never resting
Working his hands to the bone just for show, so thanklessly
Dying inside at the thought of it all just collapsing
He carves and he burns but the worlds no concern in his mind

These words fall on deaf ears
Alike to the dumb and the blind
These words fall on deaf ears

Truth be told now
It was just a fucking lie
A story sold to
Another fool that'd buy
Bury me now
In a shallow grave
Make of this now
There's nothing left to save
Nothing to save

I am still drowning with no help foreseen just let me go
Treading the waters with just one more breath yet sinking slow
Fighting the tide
Hoping that the squall will consume me
I starve and I burn but the worlds no concern in my mind

These words fall on deaf ears
Alike to the dumb and the blind
These words, fall on deaf ears

All my life
My heart has sought a thing
That which I can never name
Blurring the line
Between the dream and the pain
