01. The Decaying Doctrine

Blessed are those who write their own scriptures, for they shall be kings of the new world.

Since the dawn of civilization
The so called men of god
Have been lost in their obscurities
Their words would lead to sorrow
Commanding the weak to follow
A design for tyrants to control and enslave

We subdue not the voice inside us
We only bow down on our prey

Fire rains down from the heavens
Pouring down on those too weak to learn
On the ruins of the dead religion
Standing tall as the enslaving doctrines burn

Blindly the sheep walk to their doom, for their leader came not to bring peace, but a sword.

To lead the flock astray
Each cult began their game
They created the face of evil and gave it a name
We take their game and squeeze it
Until it breaks in shards
And under the remains the truth will survive

We are the child who questions sincerely

And in our eyes a mirror framed


02. Conqueror

Divine, unscarred and electrified.
Such words of power echo through your mind
Never stop and never break
There's always time to rest in your grave

No time to play around
Move fast or the world will bring you down
Throughout your trials you'll sweat and bleed
But certainly that's how life's meant to be

Conqueror Your finest hour's still yet to come
Your lucky star is still rising
Seeker Patience paves the winding road ahead
Somewhere your future is smiling - smiling

Pay no heed on to the mindless herd
Their babble is both worthless and absurd
Never will they understand
Your actions, reasons or your master plan

Set your mind on the task at hand
Fuel your wrath with the misery you've had
Throughout your trials you'll sweat and bleed
But certainly that's how life's meant to be


03. Kiuas War Anthem

We come with a calmness that only years
Spent out there can give you
We stand out We wear it with style
From the ranks of the gifted, a single line of
Excellence lifted
It's time to purge your ears with flame

Wall of sound Cutting your head
We trust you've learned your lesson
From the depths Tearing the ground
The hands that drag you down
One by one wiping you out
This siege cannot be broken
Until the end this regiment of rumble marches on

Our secret is simple
We're simply better by far
We stand armed and wait for the sign
The beauty of conquest,
The rush that seems to last a lifetime
It's time to purge your ears with flame


04. The New Dark Age

It's a sign of the times
That dead are the minds of men
And how long before the world grows cold
See the scars on your face
They tell the future you are blind to
Again and again

Sad is the fate of the human race
Seeking comfort in a futile embrace

Born into this world of chaos
Rising up from the grey, grey masses
Amidst the mayhem we must all find our place
I know my way just read the smile on my face
No need for God or salvation
Stay on my path of dedication
You seek the light in vain, I rest my case
I am prepared for the New Dark Age

Have you read the scriptures
Oh, how they clash with each other
My will, my heart,
The circumstances dictate my direction
With no bonds or confinement
Only a fool needs instructions
To tell right from wrong

In stupidity wallows
The bulk of the human race
Dead minds hold our species in disgrace

The future is owned by those who own themselves.
Their visions are the blueprints of the future, their deeds the monuments of the past


05. To Excel And Ascend

Observe this shell this wondrous creation
Why is it forced to ache and to bleed?
Wise men, of old, promised to end the suffering
But their legacy planted the seeds of war

I've dreamt the dream of true revelation
It struck me down then forced me to rise

So walk the path with me
Through the glass, the walls, the wire
Climbing 'til there's no higher
Somewhere beyond
Awaits the crown of kings
Kings of an unseen nation
Reigning with a true intention
To excel and ascend

Your eyes longing to see what can't and won't (be seen)
Secrets too deep in the cosmic design
You crave the truth
Yet seek in the wrong direction
And thus the walls close in on you


06. Black Rose Withered

Star eyes, you've lit the night so many times
Have the tears now diminished your light
Star Eyes, something wrong with your soul
Have the years started taking their toll

Can you still find comfort in the joy and the laughter of past nights
Do they quicken you still in the morning after when the magic wears off

Black Rose where is your heart of stone
Maybe the winter for you was too cold
Walk home the night isn't yours to own
The moment you had now is gone

Black Rose, are you cold
I can offer my pity but not my love, no
Black Rose, when you wither and fade
I'll be watching you from above

I want you to know that I don't want to hurt you
I don't want to make you cry
I don't really care if you know how it feels
I just want you to choke on your pride


07. After The Storm

By morning, it had blown over
We venture out to see, what remains
It had been creeping, closer and closer
But so far we dodged it, time and time again

I used to try just to live my life, the simple lie
I was afraid, to own up to the truth
We're not like you, we will never be contempt with what we're given
We will pursue this to the end
Left no trail of crumbs behind

Friends that i had have since become strangers
After the storm it was perfectly clear
Ones that i loved warned me of danger
But by now theres no place for fear

I used to try just to live my life, the simple lie
I was afraid, to own up to the truth
We're not like you, we will never be contempt with what we're given
We will pursue this to the end
Left no trail of crumbs behind

We're not like you, we will never be contempt with what we're given
We will pursue this to the end

I used to try just to live my life the simple lie
I was afraid to own up to the truth
We're not like you, we will never be contempt with what we're given
We will pursue this to the end
Left no trail of crumbs behind

I used to try just to live my life the simple lie
I was afraid to own up to the truth
We're not like you we will never be contempt with what we're given
We will pursue this to the end
Left no trail of crumbs behind


08. Of Sacrifice, Loss And Reward

Stronger than ten tied with blood put together
Cooler than shades on a statue of ice
More prestigious than words bound in leather
Always untouched by the ignorant lies

I've finally seen myself through the eyes of the others

We chase our dreams, we sacrifice
We know that's what makes us better
Though more of me means less of you
I have no doubt this is something that I have to do

Faster than bending the end to beginning
Sharper than wit that is parched beyond dry
More courageous than honest in sinning
Always untouched by the ignorant lies

I've seen myself through the eyes of the others
I can accept that they won't understand
I've seen myself through the eyes of the others
I've shed it all to be able to stand


09. The Summoning

Words spoken without intent
Songs borrows and used and spent
I need myself to remember
What I tend to forget
In realms hidden in the mind
Where power and truth reside
The beast sleeps waiting to
Hear its burden call

Come through the stars
Come through the earth
Grant me illumination
I see it clearly now
This blessed revelation
By my own will
Drawn from within
The veil is taken from my eyes
The me inside me tearing through
Loud and demanding in its cries

In a hole with no light or walls
Endless rows of locked up doors
A secret is hidden
Concealed from us all
And so it remains
To those who are not willing
To challenge the rules
Reap what you sow
I know I will


10. The Wanderer's Lamentation

I walk on the burning sands
I walk in the freezing cold
I walk from the verdant woods
To desolate rocks and stone
Air it speaks to me
Ground keeps me company
Carrying me on my journey

They call me the Wanderer
I seek the truth
I read between the lies
They call me the Wanderer
I wonder am I doomed
To seek but never find

Songs give me powers to cross the seas
To reach the divine frontiers
My feet are numb
I'm blinded by the burning sun
Hear I will not abandon this now
I can still prove myself somehow
Restore my strength
And I'll go to the ends of the earth

I long to wander free
Throughout, across, within
I hurry patiently
I move with no movement at all
When the way ahead looks narrow
Let me flow through like a stream
When a wall stands in my way
Let It crumble right away
