Track Name: To The Cliffs
Hand in hand, they drop below
Together, they find release

Through the trees
To the cliffs
Through the mist
To the seas

There’s - there’s no looking back

She cries behind the veil
He holds the broken ring
She cries
They plummet into the ocean
And disappear beneath the surface

Dive down
Deep down

Hand in hand, they drop below
Together, they find release

Through the trees
To the cliffs
Through the mist
To the seas

Swallowed down into the depths
Searching for eternal rest
Swallowed below
Track Name: As The Atom Splits
From a cloud of dust
Fallout
Destroyed by our own devices
Our cruelty
By our love of hatred
Our self-loathing
We've bared our necks
Now comes the axe

As the atom splits we watch our world collapse
As the ashes drift we fall asleep

We fall asleep
Closed eyes
We fall asleep
Wake up

Silence!
Silence for the fall of mankind
We built the scaffold for our own gallows
We cleared a pathway to the underworld

Wreathed in flames, we drown
The atom splits
Burning to the ground
The ashes drift

As the atom splits we watch our world collapse
As the ashes drift we fall asleep

The flesh of men is seared away
Track Name: The Contactee
Encounter the unseen
They are all around us
Invisible eyes
Am I ever alone?
Illusions of their hands
Reaching out to me
Descend from the skies
I am never alone
I see nothing
I hear nothing
But you

There is someone
Watching us
Taking us

Paralyzed
Missing time
The contactee
Procedures
Insectoid
The entities

When I stand beneath an open door

Into the portal
Tunnel of light

Watching us
Taking us
Track Name: Through The Eyes Of Devils
Creation to the deathbed
Unfeeling - I am heartless
Violation of the sacred
Existence - I am darkness

I see her sailing in the sunset
So dark, her beauty
I see her sinning on the sabbath
How far I’ve fallen

She rides the horizon
Basking in her beauty
Wish to burn the hymnal
Formed from the smokeless flame
Know me as the serpent
I am the Lord of Flies

Waiting in the shadows is a killer with a vision of a planet bathed in fire by the passing of the sun

It’s mine
Fair maiden, take his hand
I say no - she is mine

There is no (her beauty) letting go (her beauty)
Locking eyes (lord of flies) with the night (lord of flies)
There is no (her beauty) letting go (her beauty)

She is mine
For all time

I say no
She is mine
Track Name: Cumulus
(Instrumental)
Track Name: The Willows Of The Brook Surround Us
We’ve seen one thousand worlds crumble
In the blink of an eye
We've seen legions turned to dust
And jet black stars plunge from the sky

We've traveled
We've seen birth and annihilation
The worthless spawning of an empty-headed horde
The ugly truth that we must share
Everything that lives must die

This time we cannot escape it

And I watch it rain red
Rain red upon me

This time we will not escape this end

We are all too mortal
Agonizing mortality

Witness this collapse
We lie in ruins
Track Name: Graves
I’m gazing out at the chasm yawning before me
The ground cracks like an open wound
I’m staring out as the wasteland stretches before me
The sand begins to crawl like my skin

Whispering underneath
Mutating history

Lies
Bury the truth
Graves
Bury my heart
Lies
Bury the truth

I’m gazing out at the chasm yawning before me
The ground cracks like an open wound
I’m staring out at the wasteland stretching before me
The sand begins to crawl like my skin

So right now is the time
For them to answer why
Answer why
Track Name: Anthropophagy
I'll tear you limb from limb
Cannibal
Consume me
Does my flesh taste of greed?
Wolf in wolf's clothing
This path was paved with bodies

Paved with bodies

Vomit my organs
To let the parasite die

Drink this disease
My blood

One for the nights of lovers
My lips are in your stomach

Devoured
Track Name: Waking The Somnambulist
Awaken

Wake from your dark night
Twenty-three winters have passed
While you have slumbered
This bed, this grave, this coffin

Sleep no more
With the frozen dead

Die before dawn
A prophecy fulfilled

They wish to know their fates
A grim prediction realized

Become the shadows

This twisted city
In black and white
The filth of the fairground
Wake the somnambulist

Open your eyes
Take their lives
Track Name: One Million Open Mouths
The infection ravages
Spreads across the globe
The infection animates
Raise them from the dirt

And now they see the faces
And now they hear the voices
And now they feel the fear
The people running in the streets
Now they run

And now they see walking bodies hungry for their flesh
You can’t defend yourself from the million open mouths

Panic, frenzy, chaos, terror
Run

And now they see walking bodies

Now they’re running scared
Into the night of the dead

Walking bodies, walking bodies, million open mouths

Stop the blood
Clean the wound
Chase the sun

The infection ravages
Spreads across the globe
The infection animates
Raise them from the dirt

If you stop, you’ll be joining them
If you fall, you’ll be one of them
