Track Name: The Virus
No more soldiers have fallen on the battlefield
Oh what weapons have won this war
Population has gone into remission
Deadly reborn become our means to live

Animal and man infecting under the sun in moderation

Barely had enough time to run away
Sleds and shovels they glide over your grave
Weep for no one instead I pull the trigger
Land mines ignite only to erase it all

Animal and man infecting under the sun in moderation

Shed no evidence of evil it has no face at all
Bred to tranquilize the weakest of obvious disease

I’ve left behind all knowledge of man and war
cannibal fever has got my tongue

Only to be left here feeding
Track Name: Draygo
Solid and contained like a feather on the water
Could not feel any pain
Breathless as I wait for a dying hand to reach out bleeding
When all colors have no shape
and cold steel has it’s way

Drag me under without permission

Tired I still lay in a watered down diluted chamber now completely drained of waste
Another one awakens when I seal the weary feeling in my head it’s all I need

Drag me under with all feelings dead

Only motivation is to be alive is to keep alive

Rise

drag me under drag me down
Track Name: Broken Beak
Reveal the sky as open eyes fill with dust to the lids
Attempt to heal the raging waves as they spread over all we know
Treated with ease bound and equally severed from a body I’ve been morbidly tangled around
Let me live let me wander into nothing as I fly to the glow of the moon

You read my mind absolutely from between us and the rain
step outside the lightning straight into thunder
pressing on and always under the wings of a healer
you read my mind

Realign the eyes with our moon rolling back like caving walls
Too afraid to light the midnight sky we must find another way

Silhouettes sharpened by the glass inside my eyes
Take a closer peek
This oceans run too deep

Too deep to breathe to wash away our name
Too long to run to fight through this unarmed
Too late to decide which lonely wave to roll in
Turning back once crossed my mind

Nothing but bone dry tables cracking my beak on the empty skulls

Covered in rage leaking of mold
Burrowing through what became of the aftermath

Chipping away cracking to pieces
Driven to put all the bones in their place

My beak is broken now
Track Name: Tire Burn
Gonna get my gasoline
And I race across these blackened streets
Death is just a dream when you fall asleep behind the wheel

Four tires gripping the asphalt with absolute speed
Carving the streets, burning the tires down
The smell of gas lingers

I’m gonna burn my gasoline
when I race across these blackened streets
Speed is just a must
I’d rather be ashes then dust

Blowing away in the wind I’ll never race again
Burning these tires down
But I’ll never move
Cuz I’m just sittin’ out back with the gas rag in my hand
Track Name: Earthy
Stray downwind blindfolded and terrified
Crossbones fine woven may come and take over
Headstones start to blend together
Sudden movements are a retreat to the bottom

A wide load of semi sharpened misery placed high and low
and far too deep to elevate

Strong cold threads of ivy always winding down on me
Fell into oblivion never ending
Still there’s time to make amends with sage and clover
Nailed down I can’t pretend to grow

I won’t descend too low

Here the clocks that tick are the stones grinding forward

I’m saying forget all the promises I made out to harm you
And I can easily avoid you again and again light the path that I’m running in circles around
These roots below me pull together with a face of possession
But I don’t wanna be a part of the reason you won’t grow it’s killing me

And I feel I cannot hide from a soul that’s too far gone
All the changing winds of time will always win

These leaves above me flow forever in a cloud of infection
And I feel I cannot hide from a soul that’s too far gone
All the changing winds of time will always win

Here the clocks that tick are the stones grinding forward
Here the blood that drips from the fangs override me

I won’t descend

Weight of the wind directs me, resurrects my soul
Weight of the wind corrects me, resurrects my soul
Stare into me make me bleed curiously
Stare into me make me bleed
Into oblivion

I won’t descend too low
Track Name: Ogre Ram
Had I shed a lasting thread of skin I’d be ok
Pulling through the obstacle of a body in refrain

I’d be safe and sound instead of buried up to my neck in doubt

Call it lies call it coincidence impaired
Feeding through the obvious you won’t feel it coming near

and it will dive so deep into your motor lungs and bring you to an end

On your knees stop following me
You were there to burn till the end
Hand on my heart eyes to the sky
Slipped through my fingers left to die

On your feet stop crawling to me
I am here to prevent the fear

Hand on my heart eyes to the sky
Slipped through my fingers crawling down my spine
Here to remind us there’s no other way under the eyes of the beast and his prey

You will make the same mistake
Falling under a spell in disgrace
you will make the same mistake

The ogre rising to the edge begins to twist and grind you
Still holding on to holding in the end will find you anyway

You will make the same mistake

The dead will come the beast will bite
Feeding them wont hide you
Instead of calling out their name hold your hand over the flame

On your knees stop following me
You were there to burn till the end

Hand on my heart eyes to the sky
Slipped through my fingers crawling down my spine
Here to remind us there’s no other way under the eyes of the beast and his prey

The ogre rising understands fear is thick enough to feel

On your knees
Track Name: Banshee
You knew the wood was old and black and cold
and that darkness would never remove
We have a longing hunger so unmoving the fear is so alive

So in that moment a light reveals a trail of blood
all eyes on you
all around you
you don’t belong here
the fear makes blinded pray of you

The lion, a deer in the headlights what he’s become
Run forth and bow down
By the weak and young you’re roaring
Broken you lie bare naked, starving without your pride

You won’t survive with all your eyes afraid to see
You hear the banshee, you watch her dance, she’s singing for you
oh can’t you see now, your fear will become you

The fear will become you

Forward we run close to the edge of the boldest fire
Torn from focus
Heavenly calm
flames in the window tempt you to come home

Out on the edge where the scream stays howling in motion
flaunting its grace, silencing hope
Track Name: Mudslide
Fell underneath the weight of the crash
Desperately awakened by the meaning of death

gently following slowly swallowing sink my teeth into

your elevated soul I once knew
Taste more than a peeling of flesh I could own

easy borrowing deeply sorrowing worms that never reach you

The stranger inside you belongs to me
I loved you before I met you
This weather so chosen for us to mate
It softens the ground for my weight

Stay underground, I won’t rest until I lay with you, my hunger lust
for your lack of life I claim innocent and underrated
till you bring me back to the vultures I’ll wait

And under my skin lies the fate of your Hyde
The beauty inside drills another hole of shame into your head

The blood slithers through my teeth gallons away
cuz feeding deaths a part of me now
To obtain to assure I’m breathing is to say
feeding deaths a part of me

Now I am above the mound of bones
Replace my hunger with more from below

Easy borrowing deeply sorrowing sink my teeth into you

Stay underground, I won’t rest until I lay with you, my hunger lust
for your lack of life I claim innocent and underrated
till you bring me back
