Track Name: Annihilate
Sleepless nights
Spent lost in deep decline
Born of spite
We’ll watch the world implode

Fade away
Annihilate

Eyes to the sky as all light dies
Nuclear winter will claim their lives
People stare into the blazing fire
We’re living inside the funeral pyre
Return to dust
Inevitable conclusion
There’s no one to blame
If we are all the same
Fade away
Annihilate

Eyes to the sky as all light dies
Nuclear winter will claim their lives
People stare into the blazing fire
We’re living inside the funeral pyre

Fire is at the gate
Eyes to the sky as all light dies
Nuclear winter will claim their lives
People stare into the blazing fire
We’re standing atop the funeral pyre
Track Name: Sojourner
I’ve felt oblivion encasing me
Through hallowed eyes
Fractured soul falls out of reach

Escape perdition, a soulless friend
My immortal poison until the end
Time has come to relinquish your apathy
Deliver yourself into the sea

Shadows cover the sun
The ashes of your ambition
Cool air scorches the earth
Finding the will to regain motion

It feels like frustration has swallowed you
Slowly swallow this bitter truth

Escape perdition, a soulless friend
My immortal poison until the fucking end
Time has come to relinquish your apathy
Deliver yourself into the sea

Shadows cover the sun
The ashes of your ambition
Cool air scorches the earth
Finding the will to regain motion

Burn my eyes
Sad to see the wheel keep turning
Dead inside
Break away from desolation

Progress was just an illusion
This world turned to stone
Move past the connection
Tides will carry you home

Shadows cover the sun
The ashes of your ambition
Cool air scorches the earth
Finding the will to regain motion
Track Name: Maelstrom
I’ve seen that compassion is wasting away
With the murder of crows comes only decay

Blind, collapse inside
Fueling the great demise
Power corrodes the mind
Our fate is realised

From the ripples it forms,
Maelstrom is born
Close the hole in the sky
Wait for the vultures to die

Bring me the head of the serpent
Watch as all die that deserve it

From the ripples it forms,
Maelstrom is born
Close the hole in the sky
Wait for the vultures to die

Blind, collapse inside
Fueling the great demise
Power corrodes the mind
Our fate is realised

From the ripples it forms,
Maelstrom is born
Close the hole in the sky
Wait for the vultures to die
Track Name: Storm
Silence the cries
That inspiration is dead
Sever the ties
To foolish minds mislead
Over the horizon you will find (endless possibility)
The storm to pass will restore failing sight

You’ll drown under the waves
Tied to a sinking fate

Stuck in a cave
Resigned to fade away
Let the rain wash over you
And enter the fray
Stone hearts defy
Chatter of the masses
Discard false aspiration
True meaning we’ll find

Thunder will purge
Ignorance from your head
Floods will converge
Evoke what’s left unsaid
Look to the frozen sky and you will find (endless possibility)
Embrace the storm and regain clear sight

You’ll drown under the waves
Tied to a sinking fate

Stuck in a cave
Resigned to fade away
Let the rain wash over you
And enter the fray
Stone hearts defy
Chatter of the masses
Discard false aspiration
True meaning we’ll find

A speck in the sands of time
To be forgotten down the line
A speck in the sands of time
To be forgotten down the line
Bring the storm
Water fills your lungs
Through with the old
Born anew in the heat of the sun

Stuck in a cave
Resigned to fade away
Let the rain wash over you
And enter the fray
Stone hearts defy
Chatter of the masses
Discard false aspiration
True meaning we’ll find

You’ll drown under the waves
Tied to a sinking fate
Track Name: V
Instrumental.
Track Name: Kaon
It feels, like we’re walking in place
Look around, has anything changed?
Still question every little mistake
What the hell went wrong today?

We’ve strayed from the path
Created a future so black
The sun’s out of reach
A goal we will never meet

The wrath of man bought to ashes

Lifting a hand to the sky
Still within the reach of the scythe
The earth begins to give way
No longer her ire at bay

The sea starts to rise
Victim of our might
Watch it melt away
‘A problem for another day’

The wrath of man bought to ashes

Lifting a hand to the sky
Still within the reach of the scythe
The earth begins to give way
No longer her ire at bay

It feels, like we’re walking in place
Look around, has anything changed?
Still question every little mistake
What the fuck went wrong today?
And I pray that we’ll be okay
Despite the signs that show we’re too late
Is there such a thing called fate?
Is it on our side today?
Track Name: Rust
The house is set to burn to pieces
Under the hand of mechanical creatures

I’m going to rust away
And never live again
The threat is real today
Take us to the very end
I’m going to rust away
They’ll never be contained
Fighting I and I today

We’re at the cusp of all the answers
Think only of our beautiful future
Discard all trust in the system
The process longs for restriction

I’m going to rust away
And never live again
The threat is real today
Take us to the very end
I’m going to rust away
They’ll never be contained
Fighting I and I today

I’m going to rust away
And never live again
The threat is real today
Take us to the very end
I’m going to rust away
They’ll never be contained
Fighting I and I today

Forever
Track Name: Reaper
The air is like a coffin
Heading for the final straight
And I watch it all slip away
And I watch it all slip away
Into the jaws of another mistake
Scraping the dirt for one last chance
To prove it is not too late

Marching with no direction
Lost souls, no destination

(Terminate)
A thorn through to the bone
Cursed life to disown
Stinging from the voices that
Tell you you’re alone
Tearing up inside
The wolves are out to dine
Staring at the pieces
That were your life

Trapped in a tomb forgotten
Screaming for a last escape
And I watch it all slip away
And I watch it all slip away
I lost my mind along the way
You gave up believing in all I could say
In you I lost my faith

Marching with no direction
Lost souls, no destination

(Terminate)
A thorn through to the bone
Cursed life to disown
Stinging from the voices that
Tell you you’re alone
Tearing up inside
The wolves are out to dine
Staring at the pieces
That were your life

The sky fades to grey
Left calling out your name
Clawing from the dark
At peace with the past

(Terminate)
A thorn through to the bone
Cursed life to disown
Stinging from the voices that
Tell you you’re alone
Tearing up inside
The wolves are out to dine
Craving for the pieces
That were your life
Track Name: Daydream
Instrumental.
Track Name: Cold Future
Heavy is the crown
Tear through the nightmare
Stare the reaper down
Cold future ahead

Forever proud
You struggle without a sound
Never ask for help
Don’t accept the hand you’re dealt
I see that it’s hard
Hope left its scars
The black dog reappears
Disfigured throughout the years

Heavy is the crown
Tear through the nightmare
Stare the reaper down
Cold future ahead

As I look far beyond
Silence all my thoughts
Give me a moment to think
Give me a moment to think

Heavy is the crown
Tear through the nightmare
Stare the reaper down
Cold future ahead

I don’t know what the future holds
Only the present we control
You won’t know winter till
You’re lying in the snow
