Track Name: Sanity Ascend
Battling with the river of dreams
I'm lost in thought
Drowning in an intellectual stream
My mind adrift
The current carries me down to the sea of lunacy
By the waves of madness engulfed I can't breathe
My lifeline's been cut, no pharos in sight
I plunge into the darkness of my reflection

Lost in the void
I open my mind
Free from the bonds
Leave the norm

Now tear down the walls
Go let loose your mind
Now submerge your soul
Unleash the mental flood

Lost in the void
I open my mind
Free from the bonds
Leave the norm

The dams we've built around our minds
They need to be broken
Rivers must flow free

Floating as the river of dreams
I am the thought
Integrated intellectual stream
Our minds set free
Overflowing the banks, a surge of clarity
Tidal waves shatter the walls
Beacons will fall as the oceans rise
In lucidity flowing all minds

Lost in the void
I open my mind
Free from the bonds
Leave the norm
Track Name: Cloaks of Oblivion
Pulsing green neon lights
Decaying skyline, a view of the city at night
Avarice and lust scraping the stars
While pestilence seeps through the gutters and poisons our minds

Blood turning to gold as the gears turn
Inherent ideals, our ways are set in stone
Sweat, blood, tears and fear
Enslaved by empty words - we're not alive

Shadows now fall filling our hearts
Venom they feed us and leave us all empty and numb
Draped in cloaks of gloom and smiling sedated
Onwards we march, oblivious

Blood turning to gold as the gears turn
Inherent ideals, our ways are set in stone
Sweat, blood, tears and fear
Enslaved by empty words - we're not alive

Tube fed mentality
From the cradle to the grave
A morbid morality
A religion to enslave
Shake off your cloak of oblivion
Step out of mental decay

Hollow hearts, empty minds
Animate corpses keep the machine alive
Avarice and lust scraping the stars
Onwards we march, oblivious

Blood turning to gold as the gears turn
Inherent ideals, our ways are set in stone
Sweat, blood, tears and fear
Enslaved by empty words - sleepers awake

Shake off your cloak of oblivion
Step out of mental decay
Track Name: Drones
Collective mind, a one way life
enslaved yet we feel free
Keep us busy day and night
we don't have time to see
Protect the hive, keep safe the brood
The machine must grow
Provide them shelter, gather food
The only life we know

Medicated, drones have lost all senses
Human bees with no mental defenses

No sense of self, we move as one
An entity we form
Our bodies fail, die and decay
Nothing stops the swarm
Protect the hive, keep safe the brood
The machine must grow
Provide them shelter, gather food
The only life we know

Round the clock we cater to the queen
Gears are turning, feeding the machine

All hail the queen
the drones are swarming
Reigning supreme
A new hive is forming
Feed the machine
the fuel is burning
Bodies decay
and the wheels keep turning

Collective mind, a one way life
enslaved yet we feel free
Keep us busy day and night
we don't have time to see
No sense of self, we move as one
An entity we form
Our bodies fail, die and decay
Nothing stops the swarm

Medicated, drones have lost all senses
Human bees with no mental defenses

Round the clock we cater to the queen
Gears are turning, feeding the machine
All hope's lost, no point in resistance
Megahive is your future existence

Megahive!
No turning back, no point in resistance
Megahive!
Track Name: Reborn into Demise
The message said the world was dying
The planet's life was at an end
The monuments of men were crumbling
Cities drowning in the sand
Demise of an ailing nation
The machines of greed they fed
They led their realm to starvation
Now the engineers are dead

Thus they turned the cradle into a grave
Earth took back the treasures she once gave
Deep among the ruins grew a thorn
Extinction of a race, a new life was born

Answering the last transmission
We discovered a paradise
A world of endless green
And lifeforms never seen
Our leaders started a mission
We began our own demise
The machines of greed we fed
As a planet once more bled

Thus we turned the cradle into a grave
Taking back the treasures she once gave
Her old scars are bleeding, Earth is torn
How many times can nature be reborn - to another death

Senseless
We study but we never learn
Ravenous
We only see our gain
Blind
We fail to see the tables turn
Deaf
When nature roars in pain

Citadels that graze the stars
Slowly turning into scars

Senseless
We study but we never learn
Ravenous
We only see our gain
Blind
We fail to see the tables turn
Deaf
When nature roars in pain
Track Name: The Yearning
Crushed
Smashed to pieces and dust
Neverending lust
Devastated worlds, my hunger never
sated
I am the gorging snake
Everything dies in my wake
A touch of death that will turn it all to
ashes
Empty barren lands
Swallowed by black sands
The jaws of death, my hunger never
sated
I am the starving drake
Feed my eternal ache
Through death and destruction I try to sooth my pain

Blazes silencing the voices
All those empty places
The yearning still remains

I am the starving demon
I'm every shade of black
I'll tear your world apart
Chew it up and spit it back
I am the fear in men
I'm the face of hate
I'll tear your world to pieces
You can't escape your fate

Endless cycle, nothing fills the void
No emotions, another world destroyed
Broken hope, my heart has turned to stone
Swim through darkness, forever drift alone

Crushed
Smashed to pieces and dust
Neverending lust
Devastated worlds, my hunger never
sated
I am the gorging snake
Everything dies in my wake
A touch of death that will turn it all to
ashes
Empty barren lands
Swallowed by black sands
The jaws of death, my hunger never
sated
I am the starving drake
Feed my eternal ache
Death and destruction won't take away my pain

Blazes silencing the voices
All those empty places
Hollow space remains
Track Name: This Barren Existence
The strings descending from the sky
Like stings they pierce my flesh
The pegs attaching to my arms
My legs and a wire through the spine
Pulled by a force beyond my reach
My every move is orchestrated

Petrified I lost my speech
I can't see my eyes are painted
Ruled by a voice that does not speak
I fear my mind is growing weak
Feel my spirit suffocating
The chords just keep coordinating

Skin has petrified
Wooden features hide a soul
A life so deep inside
Painted face resigned control

A lie this figurine
Stiff and lifeless no more hope
I dance oh so gracefully
My stance reflects my deity

As I move blind, deaf and dumb
Feel my mind is getting numb
My senses dull, my will is null
Cut the wire, let me die

The puppet bows and tips its hat
The master laughs with no regret
Track Name: Seven Archons
Witness the arrival
Hail the sons of fire
Welcome the daughters of light
Children of the stars

We serve the celestial seven
The seven princes of Hell
Seraphim descendant from Heaven
The damned, the angels that fell

When the seven came, we saw a blazing sky
We felt the soil shake and we watched the oceans dry
Sacred scriptures said they were beings of creation
We bought those ancient lies and paved our own damnation
We worshipped them as gods; the lion, horse and dog,
the seven headed snake, the dragon and the ape
and the shining one, the sword of heavenly fire
Repaid we were with despair and broken desire

We serve false gods of death
We worship lords of war

When the seven came, we saw a blazing sky
We felt the soil shake and we watched the oceans dry
Sacred scriptures said they were beings of creation
We bought those ancient lies and paved our own damnation
We worshipped them as gods; the lion, horse and dog,
the seven headed snake, the dragon and the ape
and the shining one, the sword of heavenly fire
Repaid we were with despair and broken desire

Our children march to death
We hail the mighty ones

We serve the celestial seven
The seven princes of Hell
Seraphim descendant from Heaven
The damned, the angels that fell
We serve false gods of death
We hail the mighty ones
Track Name: The Prophet
Everyone is silent
The blind prophet speaks of war
He brings word of devastation
Telling how humanity will be no more
He was gazing at the Sun
Until all he saw was red
He kept gazing at the Sun
Until his old eyes bled
Dying when they found him
His scorched skin burning red
He traded his sight for visions
His eyes were black and dead
Now everyone is silent
As he paints the tales of war
and his words of devastation
how death will rule forevermore

Visions brought death and decay
Gazing at the Sun
Violence, starvation and pain
He kept gazing at the Sun

Followed his delusions
Became messengers of death
An insane man's call to arms
They fought till the dying breath
He kept gazing at the Sun every day
All he ever saw was blood
So on his people slay
And keep dying in the mud

Visions brought death and decay
He kept gazing at the Sun
Violence, starvation and pain
Until his old eyes bled

Slaves of a mad man's desire
The prophet who speaks to the Sun

He kept gazing as they died and his eyes bled
He'll be gazing till the day he's dead

The old man's mind is fried
Lies, lies
His sanity gone with his eyes
Lies, lies

Everyone listens
As the prophet speaks of war
He brings word of devastation
Telling how humanity will be no more
He was gazing at the Sun
Until all he saw was red
He kept gazing at the Sun
Until his old eyes were dead
Reborn when they found him
His scorched skin burning red
He traded sanity for visions
His mind was blank and dead
Now everyone is silent
As they buy his tales of war
Empty words of devastation
Death and hate forevermore

Visions brought death and decay
He kept gazing at the Sun
Violence, starvation and pain
Gazing at the Sun

Visions say tomorrow
We'll be nevermore
Silent whispers from the Sun
Doom is at our door
