Track Name: From Atom
Then we awoke
We awoke
We were hungry and we killed
We were thirsty and we traveled
Our skin felt the seasons
Our eyes saw the hours
We gazed at one another
And felt a sacred fire
Two became one skin
As we watched new life begin
We pleaded with the skies
For favor and fortune
We made tools to construct our origins
Our visions were strewn, along the rocks
Our first dreams, were forged then

A creature obsessed with discovery
Moving through a landscape of complexity
Ever pining for answers, reasons
Abolish all mystery

The docile spin of this precious gem
The violent lure of our dent in the expanse
We are suspended by these forces
Their banter spawns all that's awake

We exist, pristine result
Countless endeavors and alternatives
A vast timeline
Beauty and beholder unite

The energy of our reality
Is homogeneous
A pinhole containing all the chaos
All the chaos that will ever be

Substance and space are unrealized
Still in obedience
In anticipation of a word
Without form and void
Darkness was over the surface of the deep

The docile spin of this precious gem
The violent lure of our dent in the expanse
We are suspended by these forces
Their banter spawns all that's awake

To the mountain wrapped in fog
Only a fleeting moment
To the dirt we hold in our palm
Only a brief chapter

With eternity in our hearts
We ponder our fate
Track Name: Fall Of Man
We were born as dreamers
From dust and sands
Grounded not by physics
With a world at our hands
Fearless and unwavering
Bound by no decree of man
What lay before us
Was everything grand
As we forfeit all
Made a drone in a hive
To the four winds go
Our passions in life
Our identity concealed
By the ways of the beast
Our soul to the West
Our flesh to the East

So will we stray from untarnished ways
Or will we be saved from unintended fate

Not from the start
Was this the plan
This was our will
The fall of man
But love’s his nature
Through grace we’re cleansed
On the day that he died
At the hand of men

Power in persuasion
Is a terrible thing
Will we pass as the wretched
Will we have wasted everything
Hold fast to your hope now
For if our faith has died
We are but broke-winged birds
That shall not fly
Robbed of your limbs
You hunt the heels
Of weary children
Your face never revealed
Head held high in arrogance
Present gifts in foolishness
Gifts that are not yours to give
Empty wealth, distorted bliss

So will we stray from untarnished ways
Or will be saved from unintended fate

Not from the start
Was this the plan
This was our will
The fall of man
But love’s his nature
Through grace we’re cleansed
On the day that he died
At the hand of men

The fall of man

As we pursue flesh
His flesh came undone
Our healthy hands make closed fists
We hold them out to no one
So when you trip and stumble
Into temptation’s grasp
Know not one step was missed
Along his blood stained path
Track Name: Avoid The Sirens
Stuff all your ears of wax
Then tie yourself to the mast
This may be the only chance
For you all to sail past
Or I promise you all shall perish
On the stones you will die
So will all of you who cherish
All gifts of this life

This is not what it seems
This is not what it seems
Don't look at our faces
Don't hear our song
Avoid the sirens
Avoid the sirens and carry on

Seduced by the noises
And goddess-like voices
Know that your choice is to flee
Or enjoy death
Fight the urge to be ship-wrecked
On the floor of the sea
Turn the bows of this deck
Or be one with the reef
Our terror will fill your ears
And lungs like liquid
Wood and bones will break apart
Your breath is ours to take
Never will you surface

This is not what it seems
This is not what it seems
Don't look at our faces
Don't hear our song
Avoid the sirens
Avoid the sirens and carry on
Track Name: Behold
The land and sky one in the same
Blinding plumes of unearthly flame
We desire knowledge
Now we can't give it back
Snakes betray us all
Leaving our planet black
As we cry we are crushed by shame
So we breathe only to speak your name
Your traces surrounding me
What does all this mean

We watched you come create
We watched you come to save
Are we fated to these ways
As we march you to the grave

Down with idols
Lift up your face
You murder hearts with hate each day
With no plague causing decay
Found in us no undeserving virus
So with roaring skies we see
Our malice pales disease
With no blood left to bleed
Our hope was nailed to the tree

We watched you come create
We watched you come to save
Are we fated to these ways
Will we escape the grave

Take our breath away
Take back everything
And set this whole world to flame
Then flood extinguishing

You have only seen but small wonders
Your senses are bound by selfishness
Grow weary of your ways
My ways you can't even behold
Track Name: Destroyers Of The Earth
So what will I do
Try and survive
Find a way to weather the wrath
Fight to survive
No this is not me
Must stay alive
I don't want to die and turn to nothing
Can't stay alive
Undead all around
Feeding on the weak
Do not make a sound
Do not try and speak

Eyes squinted closed by the sun
Search in fear
Your martyrdom will be done
Shed no tear
What did we choose
Our flesh or obedience
What did we choose
Light over delirium
You only settle for proof
Look around
Those senses will not serve you
Underground
What did we worship all the years
What did we worship that brought us here

As I woke from my dreams the air seemed thin
I felt a spinning in my head
No form of escape
Where to begin
As I step outside
Sky is red
Fresh geyser spoiled and daylight dimmed
No water, wine, or broken bread
Life is found above and not within
We roam through wretched times amongst the dead

We know by the will
Of the first born of dead
The lion of the tribe
Will break the seal removing the veil
As famine enters and light flees the earth
All time will stand still
As famine enters and light flees the earth
All time will stand still
As horns are heard above
Fire falls down like rain
All the oceans to blood
All will bow once again
As famine enters and light flees the earth
All time will stand still
As famine enters and light flees the earth
All time will stand still

Humanity shall die in numbers
As wrath is poured from high
He will make dust of your monuments
Destroy the destroyers of the earth
Track Name: Divination (Feat. Dustie Waring)
From the strong and graceful lines
To the primal screams
Our precious senses
Will capture everything

Crimson hooves tread over the stirring masses
Each side clamorous and eager
Snarl at your brother
Divided by a drought of reason
Hateful shrieks break the calm
With torn hearts we ride
Vengeance like a wild blood-soaked horse
A skyline of fire
Lights up a landscape of fallen heroes

A swarthy mare passes over
Snorting in the night
They come to measure what you keep
Assure you suffer equally

Astride the white mount
Unstained sheen blissfully false
With bow strung tight
He draws on your brood
His aim acute
His arrow true
The sure-footed are tested in this age
For too long the faith of many have thrashed like a doomed ship

The gallop of a pallid corpse with tombs in hand
Ataxia and disarray
Anatomy and soul disband

From the strong and graceful lines
To the primal screams
Our precious senses
Will capture everything
Track Name: Fruition
So reluctant to abandon our scenic perch
Where the panoramic chaos is displayed from a safe distance
Here we calmly collect the sounds one at a time
As they gently arrive only whispers
Though these sounds are strangely comforting
They symbolize alienation

But familiarity is our comfort
So we relax in a familiar place
Far from the white-hot center of conviction
But in that fierce fire is where life begins

To protect is to deprive

For every emotional survival on this hardly beaten path
We've perished in a trillion ways on hypothetical journeys
So many gifts squandered
Living in a projected state

In this place the allure of our freedom
Is only matched of our devastating irrelevance
But more devastating still
Is the eternal solitude

So reluctant to abandon our scenic perch
Where the panoramic chaos is displayed from a safe distance
Here we calmly collect the sounds one at a time
There's only room for my eyes on this perch
Even if you could join me
I would treat you as an enemy
For I was forged in this heresy

One day we will make our way to the distant sounds
And into the mirage where the deceptive heat waves dance
And when we are convinced that the flames have blinded us
The beacon of your sweet epiphany will pale all that is around
And we will truly know the meaning of fire
And for you we will burn
We will burn forever
Track Name: Tides
Stretch the seas
Then place them back
Make the shadows long
May your silhouette be cast
Letting me perish letting me flourish
Both at the same rate
It's our youth we all cherish
As life deteriorates

You continue to stalk me
And I have seen your eyes
Piercing through the glass
I have seen your face
In many pictures
And you have drawn these
Lines on mine
I heard you knocking on my door

You want to tear my body apart limb from limb
With no interest in matter
I will embrace this passage
I will embrace this passage of these particles

One day I will leave this shell
Leave this earth
And will have left nothing behind

There is no ransom to be paid
No grounds to negotiate
There is no cure or fountain to seek
Bound to these laws for eternity
All will live in this moment at the speed of light
All will die in the dark of night

Pull and stretch the seas
Then place them back
Make the shadows long
May your silhouette be cast
Letting me perish letting me flourish
Both at the same rate
It's our youth we all cherish
As life deteriorates

Every beat of our heart is a step towards the end
Track Name: We Desire
Self preservation becomes a stone wall
Obstructing surreal intimacy intended for us
Progressive detachment cannot be undone
The thrill of liberation

We desire such destinations
Though we know nothing of journeys
We desire such destinations
Though we know nothing of journeys

We're only captivated by the improbable
We've seen that anything is possible
Can one observe the unimaginable
Do we deserve the unfathomable

No longer will we build
No longer will we create
Exchange our potential for
Flesh and stimulation
Time has become a burden
No longer a gift

This void which aches and burns
It endlessly consumes
Ideas and emotions
A pit that swallows our lives
Wake up your heart
Wake up your guts
Burn these images and choose our future
Indentured consumers born into slavery
Until you reject all you've learned
The rhetoric is all we know

Purge what you've become
Purge your restless heart and aching bones

Discover your will
The future is a virgin
The virtue is within us
We are divine amongst the world
Look to your brothers
And see pioneers
Find a place that has been lost
Where within mirrors reside leaders

Self preservation becomes a stone wall
Obstructing surreal intimacy intended for us
Progressive detachment cannot be undone
The thrill of liberation

We desire such destinations
Though we know nothing of journeys
We desire

Forever we will build
Forever we will create
Forever we will stack our stones
Until you bring us home
