Track Name: Last Resort
master of light
creator of sky and sea
suffer and die
conditional mercy

face to the ground
worship and fear me
beckon the call
the echo is deafening

rise, rise to the stage and be counted, ordered
aligned to stand on the shoulders of giants
rise, rise to the path of the righteous, glory
silence those who would stand in defiance

i am your everything
i am control
i am security
i'm what you've made me to be
i am eternity
i'm what you know
i am your fantasy
i am your god

awake from the dark
millenia laid to waste
this is the sound
the dawn of a new day

written to law
those who deny me
shiver and cry
at the hands of the saintly

wander the skies
never to rest again
the damage is done
you've already chosen

rise, rise to the stage and be counted, ordered
aligned to stand on the shoulders of giants
rise, rise to the path of the righteous, glory
silence those who would stand in defiance

i am your everything
i am control
i am security
i am your last resort
i am eternity
i'm what you know
i am your fantasy
i am your god
Track Name: The Left Path
the hand that feeds you holds you down
your will is broken
crack the switch to split the hide
maintain the order
one thousand generations long
these days are numbered

painted the fool
bane of existence
i offer you truth
summon alliance
friend of the ages
envisioned a rival
living indentured
exchanged for survival
sleeping in ruins
living in shadows
we care for our own
providing protection
forged in the fires
driven relentless
we've nothing to lose
embrace the hand of the left path

infected with identity
transgressions punished
the other side to what you've known
completes the circle
the days of dominance are passed
no gods or masters

hold fast the reigns of your senses
fear not the threat of revenge
those ruled by shame and specters
cast off your innocence
stand tall to face your accuser
no guilt for what's been done
it's time you meet your maker
entrenched on solid ground

painted the fool
bane of existence
i offer you truth
summon alliance
friend of the ages
envisioned a rival
living indentured
exchanged for survival
sleeping in ruins
living in shadows
we care for our own
providing protection
forged in the fires
driven relentless
we've nothing to lose
consumed in flames of the left path
Track Name: Demon Tusk
grasping for direction
i am the one who would not break
seeding an obsession
never forgiven, never saved

this repetition is strecthing me thin
i've grown tired of lying in wait
are you so convinced that you'll still be invincible
after you've sealed my fate

light's fall
night's birth

gathered around me the forsaken
their kin and their bretheren

you know me
you need this opponent
wrathful, seething outlet
surrender

time has run out

these sons of Abraham have given me no choice
following the word of law blindly as it's told
embrace this sentence, I'm committed to this role
delivered from imprisonment to sit on serpent's throne

light's fall
night's birth

you know me
you need this opponent
wrathful, seething outlet
surrender
Track Name: Days of Yore
trust, loyalty, servitude
respect, patience, sincerity
incensed, justice, nevermore
outcast, wanderer, criminal
exiled in the days of yore

silence, darkness, solitude
distance, victory, limitless
lost, hopeless, merciless
broken, faithless, forsaken
desperate in the days of yore

i never wanted this
i never asked for this
this imposition is exhausting
dedication lost
unforgivable
fate forced my hand
choked by your pride

when I approached your throne
i asked for nothing but
a chance to prove my worth
an independent path
for the betterment
i've attained the impossible

exiled in the days of yore
desperate in the days of yore
Track Name: The Great Deceiver
dark sun, black flame
biding, waiting
watcher, titan
judgment pending

cast asunder, buried in blame
burdened to carry this epic disgrace
learning to savor the salt of my wounds
nourished by the bitter taste

ive got something against you
we'll never be able to settle the score
the song is the same thing
you've offered me nothing
i've heard it before
distorted revision
its easy to weight a one sided account
eternally bound in the struggle to know
which is the great deceiver

fight fire with fire
burning the bridges
fanning the flames
the time of the cleansing
but after it's over, what's left to be saved

sentenced, condemned
unchained, banished
vowing vengeance
dominion challenged
exposed tyrant

ive got something against you
we'll never be able to settle the score
the song is the same thing
you've offered me nothing
i've heard it before
distorted revision
its easy to weight a one sided account
eternally bound in the struggle to know
which is the great deceiver
Track Name: White Horse
dark sky warning
mounting tension
conflict
white horse fall back
waning essence
conquest

among disorder the players find their places
prescient visions come to light
faithful rewarded to stand against the immitator
solidify the last divide
those who are worthy of recoginition in my graces
needn't be afraid to die
your sons and daughters follow in the path we gave them
ringing in the end of time

march on rags and bones
earning the paradise to come

trust in the highest and all your sins will be forgiven
courage found to heed the call
our strength relies on your service and obedience
devotion to the word of law
reject the knowledge, the origin of past offenses
lead the way to cull the flock
purge the pariah, the consequence of arrogance
collapsing at the bitter end of it all

dark sky warning
mounting tension
conflict
white horse fall back
waning essence
conquest

march on rags and bones
earning the paradise to come
Track Name: The Seventh Seal
we were deniers
those charged without belief
they'd say their convictions would save us

they speak of tomorrow
with lips and tongues so sweet
they prey on the sin of the blameless

they were the liars
the wolves in clothes of sheep
we'd pay for the debt of the angels

we're the remainder
those left behind to sleep
we stand at the end of the ages

you keep telling me I'd have everything
you promised me everything I want
and you'd keep telling me you're going to help me
that you're going to save me, but you won't
and now I'm in too deep
all I have left is sleep
