Track Name: Buried in Ash
I'm buried in earth and ash
No longer the hand that plants the seed
I am aware of beauty and symmetry

I learned everything yesterday
Get out and drive
What words you had to say
Everything's fine
I remembered so vividly
They'll never survive
Nothing's better in history

Out in the wild, a rival and those left left behind
All born of wires and fire sing out to sea

Your savior on a sword
They'll drown high on your advice

I learned everything yesterday
Get out and drive
What words you had to say
Everything's fine
I remembered so vividly
They'll never survive
Nothing's better in history
Everything's fine

I'm buried in earth and ash
No longer the hand that plants the seed
I am aware of beauty and symmetry
I can't tell you this won't end in strife
At least we'll hang and ream the fuckers that lobby and bottom feed

Same result
Wounds packed with salt
Track Name: Price to Pay
Red light
Draw outside the lines
You're not the only ones
No price to pay

All they seek is to create ancient hell
Whispers of viral hate

Oh god damn
Crazed as them
Blood crusades
Born again

Know that they act of their own will
and not that of any god

It's only just begun
Stand tall
The rise will fall
Track Name: Victory in Ruin
Ease into your safe house
Turn your dreams away
And reapply your life in us
Let your guard down
Light faith
Open your pockets
Feed the beast

Alone and inside the walls kept among scriptures and fed
Just show me where to sign
Bring your child inside
Set them in the ways that are true
Write and re-write the design
All is loaded
Reload

Tell me all my fears are true
Tell me I was right all along
How the world's gonna burn
I'm special, I'm wise, I see the truth
I'll be the last one
Victory in ruin
I'll buy whatever it is you're selling
You'll never even hear me question

They're already dead
You better save your neck
Burn
Down
Track Name: Thieves
Low and feed so well on the dreams of the brighter days

Writhe
Buy and sign
Breaking it all down fundamentally
Hide
Lie inside
Breaking down all boundaries

Stand in line
Just follow all the brighter signs
They'll get you there just fine

Writhe
Buy and sign
Breaking it all down fundamentally
Hide
Lie inside
Breaking down all boundaries
Writhe
Hide

Those thieves left of me
What was once now cannot be
Track Name: Hellscape
Only the hardened remain
The enslaved left alone rotting away
Limbs of the damned dangle down from their chains
Hit the ground running in stride
The high priests, see how they advertise

There's no time for glory
Steer clear of the temple
The wolves are inside waiting
Bones break
Teeth devour

Hear the whispers calling you in
Taste the decay
They'll tear you apart limb from limb
None will survive
Track Name: Man at Arms
Hand to god
Broken ope, left to molder in the sun

They've awakened, taken root
Torn asunder
Asphyxiated

The man at arms never questions
Don't give him a purpose or he'll find a way

Forced to dace upon nothing
They'll be born again as soldiers


The man at arms never questions
Don't give him a purpose or he'll find a way to cut your down
Find shelter, seek the shadows
Don't let them in
Lay waste
Sow salt


The man at arms never questions
Don't give him a purpose or he'll cut your down
Find shelter, seek the shadows
Fight your madness
Lay it down
Lay waste
Sow salt
Track Name: Smoke Trails
Red filled the air//Limbs run cold
Closed off//by the open fields ahead
Double back//search through the ruins

Climb to a safe perch
Confidence boost, an expired bottle

Blood splatter//on the horizon
Fleeing from//the boiling seas
Heading closer//lead to danger
Scale the bodies//that completed work

We never felt the sun
Until it burned us down

Smoke trails of scents
Past memories abandoned

Soon to be in our grasp
To answer for all that has passed
Double back no missteps

Run/Towards/The/Fear
Closer/Still/Onward
Scale/Walls/Revealed
Cornered/Seize
Seize....Seize

Last change for forgiveness
The end. The end
The hunter becomes hunted
The end. The end.
