Bloodlust 03:53
Sadistic, maniacal, insane butcher Never flinching in his acts of murder Never saying so much as a word His victim's screams - the only noises heard The sheer enjoyment, his modus operandi Limbs and entrails - to him as good as candy Like an itch that forever goes unscratched Relief only comes when limbs are detached His only purpose, his meaning in life Is seeing you die at the end of his knife Being virtually impervious to death He’ll fool you into thinking he's drawn his final breath Your guard will drop, you'll think that it's all over That’s when he'll strike - a deathly accurate bloody blur
A routine procedure The doctor assured you Still uneasy but acceptant That it must be done You're prepped and put on the table You're given gas and told to count Backwards from one hundred Until suddenly you're out You're suddenly jolted Awake in incredible pain Hazy but suddenly aware that your voice can not complain (Solos: Dennis, Ryan, Dennis) Your heart rate races out of control And the doctors try to stabilize But all efforts seem to fail Stability fails to reprise Resuscitative efforts fail You suffer cardiac arrest One final time your lungs exhale Soon after you are laid to rest
Frozen Prey 04:07
Running scared, digits numb Frostbite turns his fingers black Piercing wind, stings his eyes Vision blurred in swirling winds Noses to the wind they smell his fear and flesh They relish in the hunt bloodlust in their eyes Hungry for too long the pack is ravenous He is frozen prey north wind hides his cries In the night, canine howls They approach with no delay Not much time, left to him His icy limbs won’t respond In a blink, they surround Muzzles dripping with intent Now they strike, from all sides Staining white snow with his blood Noses to the wind they smell his fear and flesh They relish in the hunt bloodlust in their eyes Hungry for too long the pack is ravenous He is frozen prey north wind hides his cries Red maws open wide close down on his jugular Bones splinter, tendons rip, flesh tears, blood flies Nothing will remain of what was once a man In a flurry of red the frozen prey is consumed.
It’ll grind you into dust Quick feet and mind a must There’s no time to look back At eyes you used to trust Born from flesh and steel Infused with cog and wheel The soul behind the eyes Is trapped and can still feel Never stopping never resting man-machine sent to kill Undead cybernetic life Never living never ending soul entombed in a shell Stainless steel outer skin Just an arm and a head Iron skin and blood of lead A man you used to know Humanity is shed You deal a mortal blow But you won’t dine with crow Because all that you’ve done Is show what little you know Never stopping never resting man-machine sent to kill Undead cybernetic life Never living never ending soul entombed in a shell A wronk by any other name You can’t believe your eyes Surrounded by the cries Of all those ripped apart Its dark frame shades the sky Now that the time has come To be ground under thumb Sit back and wonder if The crows will be left a crumb
Here come the dead, they march in droves, against the living. To build a new world, where all are equal, no senseless struggle. "Life is Death, Death is Life, No more Breath, No more Strife" So claim the dead, in their still life In hopes to spread, their frigid strife Upon the living ones who defy, Who simply do not want to die Soldiering on, the living ones, do not surrender. From dusk till dawn, the dead march on, in ghastly formation. (Solos: Dennis, Ryan) "Life is Death, Death is Life"
Dirt Skies 04:24
Speck of insignificance Ripping through the indifference Murders heard on a night like this Battlefield on the horizon There are so many wounded So many bodies surrounding me Hiding within their blood soaked shrouds The enemy will never find this place As I sleep under the carcasses I smell the scent of their burning flesh Where I'm sleeping, is no longer safe Burning bodies, surrounding me (Solos: Dennis, Ryan) Of all the bad things I've done in this world I never expected to be in this place I open up my new dead eyes no heaven or hell, just dirt skies I'm being cut from the outside Stuck in the midst of another mans flesh My soul, slowly releases There's no way I can endure this pain
Buried Alive 03:17
A Hazy Awakening Darkness is all you see The faint sound of voices speak "Make sure he's buried deep" You realize you are being buried alive Armed with knowledge that you are going to die You hope someone will hear your desperate cry You simply want to know why?? Your thoughts race beyond control You're not sure how you will go Suffocation or feral hounds? Starve to death? Crushed underground? (Solos: Dennis, Ryan)
The acid rain fell to the ground And from the cemetery came awful sounds When the unthinkable - our graves unearthed! By us, you see! By our rebirth! You too may know our pain And you will go insane And with no end in sight We will not stop our fight To say we have eternal life would be in err Instead we have eternal death For life suggests that you go on without a care But we are cursed, we can't leave here Sustenance is what we seek After awakening from our final sleep. To Stop the pain of being dead, We must eat your brains right out of your head! We understand your point of view, But there is not a thing we can do! So in advance we apologize, But it is time for your demise!
Fool! Thought you could run From! Fate decided Now! Your time has come Gone! Is your old name Noooooooooooo! This isn’t right Waaaaaaaaaait! This mustn’t be Reluctant hero to the end…just accept it Walk in the ways of the Druids No longer called the Dark Uncle…now you’re the one Cleanse the world of ignorance Reluctant hero to the end…accept the charge Walk among man as a teacher No longer called the Dark Uncle…fate has decreed Disinclined Saviour you are You…said you’d give…your right arm…to elude Now…it’s time to…keep your oath…turn to stone Pride! This you must slay Time! It is now short Come! Embrace your fate Now! The time is now (Solos: Dennis, Ryan) Your…end comes now…do not fear…not in vain Die…spend your life…disinclined…dark savior
Born into unspeakable power, with the world’s every whim at his fingertips Corrupted at a very early age, taught to Look at people as if they were shit. Bombarded with military imagery, and Shown that no other way of life exists And ones who oppose the rule of his father would be cast out, imprisoned and thrown to the abyss Insatiable, he lusts for power Unstable - he’ll devour Discovering an ancient power, Locked away deep inside the earth's grip Deviously tricking his father, to help him in any way he sees fit For he tells him that this power he could use But unbeknownst to him it was only a ruse! He sticks a knife in his father's stomach And with a look of disgust, he gives a final kick (Solo: Ryan) Unstoppable is what he soon became, as he Tore the world asunder, Setting cities aflame, Survivors growing fewer by the day, and if he Thought you would oppose him, your life he would claim. Is there no hope for humankind? A hero with a focus, their mission refined? Or is extinction a possibility? Is life itself now an exercise in futility? (Solo: Dennis)
oughing fits and lungs burning, the gold skinned man wrenched Doubled over from lack of air, clutching at his chest Mutters a curse to the gods as blood falls from his lips Then smiles silently to himself Though....he...aches, he will rise To…the…heights, of the gods He…can’t...see, the fault in it He…will…rule a dead world All…who…stand, in his way Must…and…will, be destroyed Love…and…life, he will shed He…will…rule a dead world Blinded by power and drive, hourglass eyes do not see The killing of gods compels, love and faith thrown aside Into the abyss he goes, a dark dragon to dethrone He now sees the folly in it Condemned to hell and torment, thirty years of pain Enthralled to the Queen of Darkness By his own choice he stays, to endure the pain To save a world from destruction “There’s no rest for deicidal maniacs in the abyss Only a renewal so the ravens can rip out your guts once more You thought you would kill all gods with your mortal hands But you were weak and couldn’t kill us without killing the world” (Solos: Dennis, Ryan) I….will not die.......I….will return….
Cryptic Messages whispering of a place Hidden for ages, an ancient foe we face What will be found when we travel to the skies? Friend – Foe or Fame…Rise up and challenge Light for dark – Dark for light Now make your choice, fight or flight Sphere of hate – Sphere of hope Forgotten fiend, He is death Soaring higher reaching for the endless blue Upon the clouds we touch down and start the hunt Searching the floating mountains day after day Then it comes into view, the sphere to end us The journey may end when we face the fiend A holy - dark enigma All cowardice aside, raise your sword Choose to fight or choose to die The journey ends here as we face the fiend A life - death incarnation All your power is nothing to Ozma You chose to fight; now you die
