Track Name: The Adversary
Treachery of my own
Next of kin, my lips are sewn
Nothing here to threaten me
I know his eyes were watching me

Demon rise with the tide
In the night I confide
Lightning surge in my veins
Freedom for the crimson rain

[chorus]
Lies and betrayals
You have not (You’ll never find)
Seen this side of me
You will burn (Locked inside my mind)

I can’t forgive
You will not (The Adversary)
Come back from this
Treachery (Could it be?)

Tired and worn, body aches
Colder now, fingers shake
Final now, can’t turn back
I will end this attack

Staring out into the sea
I saw him smiling back at me
In the end, could it be?
This enemy, he is me

[chorus]
Lies and betrayals
You have not (Judging the past)
Seen this side of me
You will burn (This cannot last)

I can’t forgive
You will not (Could it be?)
Come back from this
Treachery (I am he)

[solo]

[chorus]
Lies and betrayals
You have not (What lies in store)
Seen this side of me
You will burn (Coming back for more)

I can’t forgive
You will not (Could it be?)
Come back from this
Treachery (The Adversary is me)
Track Name: Supercollider
Who would you follow
If your eyes were blinded?
Vengeance deprived you
Could you be reminded

Atoms fuse and merge I am the supercollider
(Cities razed and burned I’m the supreme defiler)
Planets in my wake I am the supercollider
(Patterns in the face of the supreme defiler)

I am the supercollider

A broken song prolonging fear for all who long to suffer
(These lies that torture men, we’re born again to die again)
We’re losing hope don’t tread the water
(Riptide journey pulls you toward the sun)
You’ve made all your decisions
Conquered fear, cling to religion

A chain that would bind me
Locked inside with you
Nothing but a memory
Colors bleed, untrue

Atoms fuse and merge I am the super collider
(Cities razed and burned I’m the supreme defiler)
Planets in my wake I am the supercollider
(Patterns in the face of the supreme defiler)

I am the supercollider

The everlasting cry across the plains
and screaming towards the sky
(We’re waking up to find that nothing ever changes)
Until pieces break and form anew
(The last refrain awakening)
The same old strife and struggle
(Fleeting time is now abandoning us)

[solo]

I am the supercollider
Track Name: Fafner
Raze the earth
Poison the land
This is my horde
The blood is on my hands

Fire demon
Life’s blood stealer

Break the shield
Melt the steel
Shatter the helm
Crush the heel

[chorus]
Demon of the north
Serpent of greed
Whisper my name
And I’ll be free

Lose control
Your lands are scattered
Your daughters cry
As the flames consume you

[solo]

The black miasma
Drifts across the horizon
Carts full of bodies
Blackened dreams

Fire demon
Life’s blood stealer

[chorus]
Twisted scales
The embers seething
The glowing masses
Bow and break

Demon of the north
Serpent of greed
Whisper my name
Fafner
Track Name: Madman
Rope ‘round your neck—guilty
Followers swear fealty
Lust-driven sweat—glisten
Lost in regret—listen

Beautiful face—blinding
Sweeting talking lips—binding
Come walk with me—follow
Whispers of earth—hollow

Feeling the aching of time erased
Scratching the surface upon my face
Hear me now, my last decree
Deliver your souls and worship me

Twisted the notes—turn them
Who speaks the truth—burn them
Inspired by fear—violence
All for your own—silence

Blood drips upon—splinters
Lost from the start—center
Turn to the light—fleeting
Wounds kept in spite—beating

Nothing can break the rising tide
Swept right into my rage inside
Don’t worry now, it’s just a phase
It won’t be long and you’ll leave this place

Shedding the lies that kept me strong (Madman)
Humming a tired and somber song (Hear me)
Lost in a haze, you cannot cry (Madman)
Just close your eyes and you’ll never die (Worship)

[solo]

Madman—hear me
Madman—worship
Track Name: Sedated and Swathed
Cracks sever the wall
Peering through to another life
Shock reaching out from another place
Creating the empty space

Bound so I can feel
All my aches
Beloved regret
I welcome an old friend into my corner

Piercing the shell
Application erased
Pacing through hell
Chemical lines misplaced

[solo]

Rest eluding
Pores extruding
Death unclean
Lies obscene

Green and blue
Gentle hues
Lines are crossed
Facts are lost

[interlude]

Lock and key
Right here I’ll stay
Such soft relief
To waste away

Sever a branch
Division of faith
Just settle down
Sedated and swathed

[solo]

Come now, quiet down
Sleep sound
You’re here to stay now

Calling all madmen
Against the wall
It’s time to sleep now

Muscles contracting
Resisting the capture
Electrons distracting
Creating the rapture

Deception, disruption
A sacred abduction
The knowledge forsaken
Repeat and awaken

The echoes of martyrs
To strengthen their ardor
The words of my science
My act of defiance
Track Name: Smoulder
Voices call you
Sighs of serpents
Writhing blurred truth
Void will conquer

Fires smoulder
We’re still left here
Mind not dying
Soul subsiding

Blood spilled, past lives
Lost, trapped in time
One last time now
You’ll have left here

Such a mistake
What shall they break
Days stop dawning
Abyss spawning

[chorus]
Go now my son
You’re the one to save us
Now you must choose
What to lose when nothing’s left

Eyes bereft
Walking blindly to the flame
Burn your flesh
Linger on or rule the world

Phantoms fill the air
Blissful in the dark
Dream that fell apart
Found an empty shell

I don’t know at all
What others always knew
Colors bleed away
My perfect twisted view

Take me as I am
No belief in me
Rip me from the soil
Burn then release me

[solo]

[chorus]
Go now my son
You’re the one to save us
Now you must choose
What to lose when nothing’s left

Eyes bereft
Walking blindly to the flame
Burn your flesh
Linger on or rule the world

Be a god
Take the blame for sorrow
Vengeance is nigh
For the bones of dragons
Track Name: Walls of the Titans
Lurid incantations echo
Honoring the gilded icons
Lining up for execution
Following the order

Stuck beneath the bodies
You’ll find no service here
Just a brief disturbance
Your freedom drawing near

Liars underserving
Hatred never swerving
Eyes gaze, not concealing
Warm rush, then congealing

Usurped all their masters
Faces under plaster
Lost in your selfish ways
Behold, the final blaze

[chorus]
Undone, the power of gods (Hatred)
Return what the sacred of shunned (Burn)
Broken, the beast that is greed (Darkness)
Unlearn, desire is to blame (Empty)

Daily degradation lingers
Nothing left to follow
Free, yet still in chains
Pain and fear so hollow

Monsters in their walls
Spinning webs of nightmares
Nowhere left to hide
Nothing left inside

Liars underserving
Hatred never swerving
Eyes gaze, not concealing
Warm rush, then congealing

Usurped all their masters
Faces under plaster
Lost in your selfish ways
Behold, the final blaze

[Chorus]
Reborn, nothing has change (Liar)
Unknown, the deeds of a monster (Hunger)
Searching, but none will reply (Wretched)
Fading in the October sky (Monster)

[solo]

[chorus/solo]
Track Name: Empire of Disgrace
Taken with Darkness
A glimpse of rapture
Haunting visions
Stay the while

Staring gaze-less
Wandering wide
A distant motive
Sounds its call

Turning my thoughts
From distant ruins
From ancient sirens
And battles waged

Return to zero
Sharpened mind
Raising quickly
From that place

From the throne
Of distaste
And the Empire of Disgrace
Over which I watch

I cannot bury all who have passed
Or those unborn nameless dreams
Those who built these walls stay here with me

Chains of lust, lies, and pain
Carved into my throne
I cannot ever stray

[solo]

Hear those cries buried in time
Wind-swept tears heavy with age

Trapped in my thoughts
In history
Suffer silence
In reverie

Return to zero
Sharpened mind
Time to take leave
From apathy

Close the wounds
Time forgot
Close the wounds
Never forget
Track Name: Siren
Casting aside my shelter
Pursuing her echoes failing
The current will rage and sigh now
And hide her immortal wailing

Drink from the sacred spring
In ancient meadows
For you the heavens sing
So follow me

Believe in another ending
This hunger at last awaken
The mist of a barren shore
Sighs of the forsaken

Flood—take me
Silence—break me

Weakened fools, we pick their bones
Followed lust, their sins atoned
Sealed within this bitter fate
Now for you it’s far too late

Fall into the curse herd
A feast for us, the grounded birds
The masters vile, yet so absurd
This feast for us under the sun

Bound to the earth, plucked from the sky
Devour my flesh without knowing why
Sing for me now and I’ll leave my mark
A stain upon your brow so pale, now so dark

Hurt, fear, and silence—salt in your lungs
Men scream for help—we pluck out their tongues
You cannot conquer, I will not leave you
Prayers for your soul—words they deceive you

[solo]

Desolate these plains of madness
March into the void
The bones of others fading
The lives you destroyed

Flood
Silence
Take me
Break me
