Track Name: 'til the End of Time
The tales were told of an ever looming darkness
Lost to time the scriptures and the prophecies
The wars of ages past had burned our own perceptions
We could have stopped this but for our short-sighted greed

A quest for gold and power was
Enough to blind our senses to the
Ever-impending demise
The sun is falling past the edge
A hush has fallen from the trees
The chill of an end
Wrought by wrath and hypocrisy

The fields have all been burned, the factories abandoned
Empty houses line our overgrown streets
But still the remnant few defiantly stand taller
Taller than our forebears for fruition of our dreams

We were waiting for a sudden end
But there it was below, always
lurking and waiting to strike
And now the time has come again
For brave and mighty to take arms
And relight the stars
For a future in danger

A failing light
from a burning sky
A call for evil to attack
And manifest eternal night
But we will march for light
Til the end of time
Raise our hammers and our swords
For our world to survive
Until the end of time

(Afraid) We are not afraid
(Defeated) We will never be
As long as there's fire, that's the mark that we'll wear
(Afraid) We are not afraid
(Defeated) We will never be
The hope of an age is a weight we must bear

Though the empire is strong
Our will shall keep us fighting
Until victory rests in our hands
And when the world seems darkest
Just remember we are fighting
And as long as there's fire there's
A banner to fly for

A failing light
from a burning sky
A call for evil to attack
And manifest eternal night
But we will march for light
Til the end of time
Raise our hammers and our swords
For our world to survive
Until the end of time
Track Name: Fever Dream
It's just a curse, you mutter to yourself
Nothing untold riches can't overcome
It's only taking what's rightfully yours
Curses aren't real they're just superstition

No spell can make you cower
No witch can make you shiver
With a threat as toothless as her smile
Curses aren't real they're just superstition

Sleep with a knife
Under your pillow at night
It won't save you
When your greed comes back to haunt you

It's just a curse that no one knows about
And you'll be safe just as long as you're secret's kept
What good's a curse when your enemies are dead
Curses aren't real they're just superstition

No pow'r can be overcome
Your reach can't be outrun
No move escapes your watchful eye
Curses aren't real they're just superstition, no
Curses aren't real they're just superstition

Sleep with a knife
Under your pillow at night
It won't save you
When your greed comes back to haunt you

It's just a fever dream
Track Name: The Necromancer
These are the eyes
They see to the end
They rest upon corpses of forgotten men
These are the hands
They lay on the dead
They find living pulses in decaying flesh

I am the lord of the living passed
Denying these spirits their eternal rest
I as the king of a race of undead
Will be the one left standing

The death winds, they moan
Unfettered and blind
They cut through the body yet still spare the mind
The mind I control
The mind I enslave
The mind that, once mine, yields the power I crave

I am the keeper of vows unsaid
Collecting my dues from my serfs of undeath
I, animator and giver of breath
Will be the one left standing

With power restored
And armies amassed
My gods will approve of my task
They rise once again
With me at the helm
And glory is mine to be grasped
When they see my work
Will they not be pleased?
With all of the world at their feet
The chaos will reign
Please hear my appeal
For I am the necromancer!
Track Name: Like It or Not
Your face is unfamiliar
But I sense the aura of your kin
Son of the demon-killer
Child of the tamer of the winds

Oh it's in your eyes alright
The way that your eyes alight

When I talk of bloody duels
The kind that no mortal man could win

Does it take you to a place
Somewhere not so far away
It don't sound so awful does it
Just hold still let me explain

I know it's hard for you to see
But these things are just not up to me
It's your turn to light the torches
I realize I'm asking a lot
I know it's hard to believe
But you can't just turn around and leave
Cause it's your destiny
Whether you like it or not

A bit shy but that can change
A bit short, a little underfed
Fixes can be arranged
So don't let it weigh upon your head

That you're feeling unprepared
A bit vexed and a little scared

That's just the wondrous feeling
Of fate choosing the one to forge ahead

Put on your gloves and your marchin' boots
The bards are writing your battle tune
Their muses just needed a hero
You're lucky that they've chosen you

I see you're hesitating now
Like this is all some big mistake somehow
But is this the path you're choosing?
Back turned and leaving us to rot
I know it's hard to believe
But you can't just turn around and leave
Cause it's your destiny
Whether you like it or not

Now son don't make me say it again
But desperate times make desperate men
So go on, get saving the world
Track Name: Her Favorite Color is Red
Everything feels warm, you never felt the pain
Just puddles pooling down beneath from
Blood dripping down below your knees

Untouchable, or so you always thought
As your legs give out and you're on the floor
Air suckin through the hole in your belly you weren't ready for

Life's dishonor, death's descendant
Life in shadows, unrepentant
Tinted silver, tainted flesh
She don't mind the blood her
Favorite color's red

Like a mist she disappears into the night
Just like a figment of your mind
Cheap sex and violent ends for free

Free will will only go so far until
Another's will comes bearing down on yours
And may the sharpest eyes come out ahead and duller knives get dead

Life's dishonor, death's descendant
Life in shadows, unrepentant
Tinted silver, tainted flesh
She don't mind the blood her
Favorite color's red

She lives the knife, got an itch to use it
She lives the life, got the urge to prove it
She lives the knife, got an itch to use it
She lives the life, got the urge to prove it, yeah

Life's dishonor, death's descendant
Life in shadows, unrepentant
Tinted silver, tainted flesh
She don't mind the blood her
Favorite color's red

Red boots, red gloves, red-eyed an ger
Red the splattered life that stains her
Cloak and dagger, heels to head
She don't mind the blood her
Favorite color's red
Track Name: Beneath the City
Connected tunnels and rats
All tied together in knots
With rope and caution tape

I think you'll find
The soul is like a secret here
It's hard to keep it safe

We run this town
And all we ask back
Is a measure of respect
And occasional sacrifice

We're powerful
But we're happy down here
So give us what we want
If you want us to play nice

Illusion of control
Your world ends down below

The gears all turning alive and beneath your cities
Beautiful souls and minds here beneath your cities
You wouldn't last a day yeah

The gears all turning alive and beneath your cities
Wicked hearts and minds here beneath your cities
You'd best avert your gaze yeah

Ghosts and spectres and dead
All swim around in your head
Oh no this cannot be

The story that you made
The fiction you thought up
That help put you to sleep

Well it's alive and
Well, we just decided
That you're the number one
Candidate to take its place

And normally we'd respect
Your skepticism but
We're kind of in a hurry
So we'll forgo your final say

The fragile will of man
My wish is your command

The gears all turning alive and beneath your cities
Beautiful souls and minds here beneath your cities
You wouldn't last a day yeah

The gears all turning alive and beneath your cities
Wicked hearts and minds here beneath your cities
You'd best avert your gaze yeah

Yeah yeah yeah you lost little boy
With a lot like yours you were never gonna make it
You know what we do with lost little boys
The cameras are rolling now begin the mutation
Track Name: Take to the Sky
To the sky I roam
To the sky I find myself at home
For all the problems of the ground leave me alone
And so I fly
So I fly

And to the sky I take my wings
And surely wings will falter after time
But I'll have all the time I need to write my name
Into the sky
And so I fly

And let the winds proclaim the way
I soared above the falling rain
And let the clouds tell tales
of how I rose to meet each coming day
And if in the end we live again
I'd like to say I've already been
And race the angels through the gates
They'll never catch me they're too late

The air above, it takes me in
Its wings surround me, protecting all I love
The sky delivers me from all the evil of the earth

Because below, it's all but lost
And if I had my way I'd raise my head
And when I look again, it's all just clouds to the horizon
For the horizon holds our only chance

So let the winds proclaim the way
I soared above the falling rain
And let the clouds tell tales
of how I rose to meet each coming day
And if in the end we lose the fight
I'm already sailing into the night
And I won't join you but will you join me
Let the gales and zephyrs set you free

And fly
Take to the sky
Take to the sky
Take to the sky

To the sky I roam
To the sky I find myself at home
For all that's left and all that ever really mattered
Is in the sky
Track Name: Hymn of the Hourglass
So it's come to this, our task is
Clearer than the skies we used to
Stare into when times were peaceful
Before the stain of evil
Shame that we'll destroy the world
You fought so hard to save
But this earth is far beyond its saving
The light of hope is far past fading

So we climb to the summits of mountains
To offer ourselves to the gods who are waiting

(Come cleanse the earth)
(So we may begin again)
To end
The world again
Oh we can't save ourselves
But we won't let evil win
We pray to end
this world again
You tried your best and lost
So now we offer up our world
To death itself
To death we drink tonight

O, God of Death!
O, merciful end! We stand today
To ask for your forgiveness
Entreating you to end this darkness
The balance has been torn to pieces
And left to rot and fade
It's clear to us this earth is fallen
The light of hope is near forgotten

A sacrifice in the name of the living
We offer this world to the fate it's begotten

The ritual begins
The blood drips from our hands
We grasp each other's wrists
And plead for swift and painless ends
At your feet our whole lives served
Taught to heed your will from birth
Now may this prophecy of death
Be fulfilled by your dark works
All the anger ever wrought
All the wars we ever fought
Every child lost to disease
Every sin against the gods
Led to this, our last decree
May your sword, with godly speed
Rend good and evil alike
Wipe this cursed planet clean
Track Name: Assault on Psychofortress
Tonight we march to war
To the fortress where we lost our dreams
We fight through waves of blinding screams
Meet blades with demons armed with roaring light

A desperate chance before it all fades
What started as knowledge has turned into rage
But fear is not an option with lives to save

If anyone that's left can hear us now
Sing out your freedom, we're coming for you
Just hang on, and it will all be over soon
We're coming for you

Bombard the gates with explosions of four chords
You'll know they're bleeding when the distortion strikes
They had their chance but their first mistake was fighting on our ground
A battlefield of sound

If anyone that's left can hear us now
Sing out your freedom, we're coming for you
Just hang on, and it will all be over soon
We're coming for you

D'you hear that?
Stay strong
Don't give in
We're coming for you
Track Name: The Best Laid Plans
Building monuments to yourselves
Like you didn't know you'd just be watching them decay
Haunting your own graves 'cause you have nowhere else to go
Like once the last memory is gone, you think you'll fade

Ain't that a shame
So many pretty words were wasted on the past
When all you are is ghosts

The best laid plans have all been buried in the sand
Prophets and historians alike will all perish in time
You're not eternal, you are nothing but spirits and insects
The best laid plans have all been buried in the sand
Tyrants and emperors alike will be gone in a breath
Oh the arrogance, would you spit in the eyes of the one who created you

Oh you have so little time
Spending it so carelessly, surprised when it goes fast
Wasting days and nights arguing meaning and intent
It's all so dull, but how would you have known it wouldn't last

Ain't that a laugh
You've spent eternities here searching for the truth
Did you think you had a chance
Track Name: Assault on Psychofortress (Amped Up)
Tonight we march to war
To the fortress where we lost our dreams
We fight through waves of blinding screams
Meet blades with demons armed with roaring light

A desperate chance before it all fades
What started as knowledge has turned into rage
But fear is not an option with lives to save

If anyone that's left can hear us now
Sing out your freedom, we're coming for you
Just hang on, and it will all be over soon
We're coming for you

Bombard the gates with explosions of four chords
You'll know they're bleeding when the distortion strikes
They had their chance but their first mistake was fighting on our ground
A battlefield of sound

If anyone that's left can hear us now
Sing out your freedom, we're coming for you
Just hang on, and it will all be over soon
We're coming for you

D'you hear that?
Stay strong
Don't give in
We're coming for you
