Track Name: 3014
Centuries ago once exposed
Depths had peaked and deserts froze
No technology yet towers rose
Eternal emperors enthroned in tombs

Knowledge based on what we know
Artifacts unearthed from depths below
Between the cracks
Beneath unknown
What once was we’ll never know

So they slept preserved in dream
Rich pantheon of gods in bas relief
Archives expired with the deceased
No records kept
Or so it seems

Knowledge based on what we know
Artifacts unearthed from depths below
Between the cracks
Beneath unknown
What once was we’ll never know

Fortunes told
Annals erased

Treasures known
Now displaced

From fact to fiction
Tales turned in to myth
The only difference is
The differences
Track Name: Watching The Thinker
What’s the reason for their scheming?
Malevolent? Benevolent?
Breeding straight treason?
Is that thought meant?
Or just thoughtless?
To believe in all you’re reading
That’s some hard press

Mind it bleeds
Eyes they bleed
Thoughts they bleed
Filling a cistern
Never see
Never need
Never be anything

You’re watching
Thinking
Trust in
Instinct

Mind it bleeds
Eyes they bleed
Thoughts they bleed
Filling a cistern
Never see
Never need
Never be anything

Your mind it bleeds
Eyes they bleed
Thoughts they bleed
Filling a cistern
While you’re
Watching the thinker

Every dark tale told
Every one more bold
Garbage it’s churning
As bodies burn in
Valleys of green gold
Fortunes for those old
There is no sating
All of it’s yearning
Valleys of green gold
Fortunes for those old
Oh so discerning
All that it’s earning

Propagate
Become it’s mould
Cultured state
Heights extolled
Track Name: Trojan Syndrome
Trust the jaws that have taken
A bite of your generous hand
Recast the hook whose barbs
Tore your tender flesh
Relight your path with the torch
That set your hopes ablaze
Then cut a path through the brambles
With the scythe
That ripped
Your flesh
From bone

This is our home?
This is our home!
This is our home, this London syndrome?
We’re not alone
We’re not alone!
We’re not alone, it’s a Trojan kingdom

The ebbs and the flows
Those highs and those lows
Vortex swings
That vortex swings
That vortex swings old and new things

This is our home?
This is our home!
This is our home, this London syndrome?
We’re not alone
We’re not alone!
We’re not alone, it’s a Trojan kingdom

So gently wipe the blood from the dagger
That pierced your heart
Then use that poisoned needle
Stitch your wounds with the strands of fate
Then dig a hole for you cornerstone
With the shovel that buried you alive
Be vulnerable
And open your
Shyly shuttered soul

This is our home?
This is our home!
This is our home, this London syndrome?
We’re not alone
We’re not alone!
We’re not alone, it’s a Trojan kingdom

This is our home?
This is our home!?
THIS IS OUR HOME!
Take a risk
Take a stand
Take a chance
If you did that would be grand
Track Name: Don't Break Your Neck
Atop the cliff
You drown in your decision
Collect your strength or
Just fucking give in
The future clear
With not much left to do
Below the shore
Just begging for you

Don’t break your neck
Falling to your death
What more is left
But one last breath

So take it in
Reset and then begin
For each approach that’s broached
There must be one in there that wins
But fuck the fates
Those seamstresses of seamlessness
Or luck
Which seemingly might just seem circumstance
Oh no!
Oh no!
To know no tomorrow

Oh know!
Oh know!
Oh know no sorrow
No regrets
As you collapse
What more is left?
Only your death

In darkness
A time to reflect
As the past becomes the present
Enemies are now your best friends
Happenstance becomes intended
All the time you’ve spent and yet to spend
All moments revealed as relevant
Every encounter begins to blend
The end
Seen
As the
Beginning
Of
Your
End

Don’t lose
Your footing
Stand strong
Stand rooted
You wanna live?
Well fucking prove it
So few options
Just one movement
Track Name: Leviathan
Oceans are calm
Treasure fills the hold
Ashore by dawn
To divide among the merchants
Rich stories to be told

Then the seas they begin to boil
Slightest tremor and a sudden lilt
Hull it shudders as the ship it shakes
Horizon shifting as your vision tilts
Then the captain cries
“ALL HANDS ON DECK!”
Cables rip through the crew
Backstays begin to snap
Violently thrown by the devil it seems
Your eyes spy a horror starboard side
Drawn out of your worst dreams

Tentacles rise
Block out the sun
Darken the skies

Upheaval in the waters of chaos
Your fate now understood
Iron bends like straw
Bronze breaks like rotten wood
As the arms crash through the deck
One last chance to reminisce
Of all you could have been
For soon you become
A slave to the abyss
Track Name: Their Experiment
All alone
In the dead of night
Cloak of darkness
Covers campfire light
Something bright
Catches your eye
Streaking right across the sky

Suddenly it slows then comes to a stop
Your blood goes cold
Along with your thoughts

Bizarre it hangs
Not making a sound
Getting larger
It’s closer now
Trembling hands
Reach for your face
A beam shoots out
There’s no escape!

As it takes hold
All time stops
Your limbs immobilized
Your body caught
Floating now
You approach the anomaly
Can
This
Really be HAPPENING!?

From the middle you can see the stars better

Huge eyes
Bodies long and slender

Surrounded now their thoughts inside your head

Your body
Their experiment

Nerves all seize
As they become acute
Insides on fire
As pain it shoots
Through your whole soul
Nothing comes when you try to shout
Hell is known
Oh dear God there’s no way out
Track Name: Blood Comet
Tall Whites
800 Years
Eternal Greys
The ones feared
Lizard People
Hide in the crust
Crystal Atlantis
Never to rust

Blinding lights
Memory loss
Alarm is sounding
Hatch is yawning
Fire fights
And an explosion
Self destruct sequence
Initiated

Bodies are burning
Their ashes fill the room
This spaceship will become your
Tomb

Elohim
The Watchers
Reptilians
The Lost Continent
Remains out of touch

You have to fight
Don’t get lost
Quick, to the escape hatch
At any cost
A flash of light
The hull it creaks
Hurry now or be
Asphyxiated

Bodies are burning
Their ashes fill the room
This spaceship will become your…

To the left
To the right
Evaluate
Your spacesuit tight
Evacuate
Eternal night is just outside
Better being there
Than being here alive

In space
No one
Hears you…
Track Name: Behemoth
Behold the creature fury unrelenting
Strength in his loins force in the navel of his belly
Aberrant tail sways like a cedar
Sinew of his stones are sown together

Terror born of earth upheaved
Set free from his hold
His vastness fleeced the flocks
As they bleating rose

In plaited mail he rears his head
Shambling forth from the invisible desert
Forcing all in to the here, the present
Ground it shakes

Newborns of this earth they scream
Fresh from old wombs mould
That traction breeding shock
As all hope erodes

Coming this way
There’s no escaping

With each footfall felt
Time stops
Crashes, then it recedes out
Of reach
Insides melt
As all things known now insignificant

Hear it
Coming
Now

There’s no
Other
Sound

Everything is darkness

Where is your God now?
Track Name: 21 Seconds
Bended bow
Brass quiver with poisoned arrows
A plague not seen since ancient pharaohs

Falchion drawn
On your knees wretched vassal
Protect your land defend your castle

Weight
In scales
Import, enhance this oil to wine
Each day closer to the end of times

Skeleton
All that’s left when that day comes
In 21 seconds your life is done

Plague
Of crows
All a murder carrying sorrow
No longer find a need to harrow

Fields
Are gone
Rivers of blood flow to the ocean
Once a potion, now a poison

Drink your fill
Overflow your brittle cup
Time is up, luck is fucked

Adrenaline
Courses through your icy veins
What’s witnessed next drives you insane

Ground erupting
Tides are swelling
Shadow rising
Fiery black wings unfold

Horrifying

Look to the sky
Stars are falling
The end of all time
Slowly plodding

21 seconds that’s all that’s left
18 seconds that’s one more breath
15 seconds what you got to do?
12 more seconds they’re coming for you
9 more seconds oh my God they’re close
8 more seconds then you’re a ghost
4 seconds now shed your regrets
2 more seconds now
1 more second
You’re dead
