01. Riders Of The Plague

So salvation here runs the flood
Here dies the love
The banner of the ungranted
And our darkest days
The feelings that were forced
Out of fear without a drop of remorse
Now that the pain is released
With cryptic seals and signs
Running over heartstrings wretched and run dry
When the feathered begin to fall

With a voice like glass
Born to splint and shatter
The touch of sunlight
Like heavens plague, the birth of black

With hung halos of wrath and decay
The furthest of faith, the Rider of Plagues

Our hands have reached thin of skin
Sifted straight to bone
Bare and broken
As the inventors hope
Unseen by the believed
Unbelieved by all who see
So when you become every dream abhorred
A being so bitter
Not worth the weight of ice in his words

With a voice like glass
Born to splint and shatter
The touch of sunlight
Like heavens plague, the birth of black

With hung halos of wrath and decay
The furthest of faith, the Rider of Plagues

With a voice just like glass
Born to splint and born to shatter
The touch of sunlight
Like heavens plague, the birth of black

[Solo]

With hung halos of wrath and decay
The furthest of faith, the Rider of Plagues


02. Dead And Gone

When syllables go soundless
The sensation kills you
To the brink of burning
From the fill of your filth
To their lacking skill
While walking through these walls
I've come to find no unconditional

I am now breeding fear
Deep into your soul
You may live on as nothing
I am now dead and gone

Reaching further into the void
Past the gates of slumber - forever night
To a non-believer, from a distance
It seems much clearer
The total loss of mind
From suspended faith
To where it must die

I am now breeding fear
Deep into your soul
You may live on as nothing
I am now dead and gone

I am now breeding fear
Deep into your soul
You may live on as nothing
I am now dead and gone

It would be senseless to drag this out
Anymore then time could wither
Clock hands corrode
Live on as nothing
You'll live on as nothing

While walking through these walls
I've come to find no unconditional

[Solo]

I am now breeding fear
Deep into your soul
You may live on as nothing
I am now dead and gone

I am now breeding fear
Deep into your soul
You may live on as nothing
I am now dead and gone

Dead and gone
Breeding this fear deep in your soul
I am now dead and gone


03. The Murder

The gathering now of storms within
That whip and rip the stead, joined at the head
Dying to make ready for the deliverance to the land
The swarming devourers, the murder

Here are the fortunes to tell
Of our demonic dreams the burnt fires of hell
Painted in black
The warmth is seething and moving all through me

Total
Annihilation
We are your masters now

[Solo]

I can see them coming down like rain in the streets
Soaking into everything
Like blood through cloth
Scratching limbs from wing and claw

All life will start to slow, and freeze into position
When the murder crows
With likeness to shades much deeper than dull
The infinite abyss forever holds

Total
Annihilation
We are your masters now

Crushing your premonition
Crushing your premonition

[Solo]

Towers fall into the fire
And razored hails of glass and steel
Brought down by stabs of rage without fear
Gashed hearts worked deep who refuse to hear

Here are the fortunes to tell
Of our demonic dreams the burnt fires of hell
Painted in black
The warmth is seething and moving all through me

Total
Annihilation
We are your masters now

Total
Annihilation
We are your masters now


04. Echos

Blinded behind walls of
Self built stained glass
Focus enters eyes well watered
At last, with vision split

Hewn end to end, life -force leaked
From sun-cracked skin
In the blink of an eye, dying too is the quick
This life story to tell with one second to live

The hammer comes down on thunder strikes
Where we burn fast in the build of our lives

Slowing down, to see the mountains you built
This life story to tell with one second to live
Slowing down, to see the time that passed you by
Your life story to tell with only one second to live

Time takes throne to purge
The fill of our flight
When days turn into years
And a loss of life

Death rattles a mile away
From your restless symphony
The ridden thought unsound
The shadows that crept lonely all around

The hammer comes down on thunder strikes
Where we burn fast in the build of our lives
Now waiting will just not work
When tales must be told, changed and retold

Slowing down, to see the mountains you built
This life story to tell with one second to live
Slowing down, to see the time that passed you by
Your life story to tell with only one second to live

[Solo]

Slowing down, to see the mountains you built
This life story to tell with one second to live
Slowing down, to see the time that passed you by
Your life story to tell with only one second to live

Slowing down, to see the mountains you built
Slowing down, your life story to tell
Slowing down, with one second to live


05. World Divides

There is an aftertaste to celebrate
In the swings of my suicide
Or the lines I will draw by myself
Within the grasp, fictitious pasts, and all my doubts

How can you see through the shadows
With the blinding light (Burning in your eyes)
So where will all of you be
When the killing fields are cleared and the world divides?

How can you see through the shadows
With the blinding light (Burning in your eyes)
So where will you be
When the killing fields are cleared and this world divides?

[Solo]

The loss of heart becomes unbearable
And a vanishing point becomes intact
So when a six foot drop is my best
I will expect nothing less than a soldier's death

How can you see through the shadows
With the blinding light (Burning in your eyes)
So where will all of you be
When the killing fields are cleared and the world divides?

How can you see through the shadows
With the blinding light (Burning in your eyes)
So where will you be
When the killing fields are cleared and this world divides?

[Solo]

There is an aftertaste to celebrate
In the swings of my suicide
Or the lines I've drawn
At last for redemption
And finally for my forgiveness
In the end this bitterness bends
Simply encased in my withered hands

How can you see through the shadows
With the blinding light (Burning in your eyes)
So where will all of you be
When the killing fields are cleared and the world divides?

How can you see through the shadows
With the blinding light (Burning in your eyes)
So where will you be
When the killing fields are cleared and this world divides?


06. Prosperity

[Instrumental]


08. Awakening

We are all withered away
In this suffered position
With the choke of truth
The long unseen, the short believed

If this is enough I'll distance my hands
From heaven's touch
I cannot believe my eyes are seeing
The breach of ours undone
Because the road to hell had become far too long

March through the darkest light
Destroy everything in sight
To the bane of our being
All eyes open

March through the darkest light
Destroy everything in sight
To the bane of our being
All eyes open for the awakening

Decide now if you want in wrong
A shallowing grin is sure to become
Lies that shift the storm
Become blankets to a man well worn

Ripe with stench and rot
Feeling the burst, awaken with pain
With all to the wayside now
We are destined to be below the freeze

[Solo]

Now that these pages turn
There is nothing but regrets gone distant
So now that these pages burn
It's one more thing that I won't forget

[Solo]

Now that these pages turn
There is nothing but regrets gone distant
So now that these pages burn
It's one more thing that I won't forget

March through the darkest light
Destroy everything in sight
To the bane of our being
All eyes open

March through the darkest light
Destroy everything in sight
To the bane of our being
All eyes open for the awakening
The awakening

March through the darkest light
Destroy everything in sight
To the bane of our being
All eyes open


09. Merciless

I will not bear the watch
While the animated sadness releases
A cyanide touch for us
So utterly devastating its measure glides
The breath that is born of behemoth size
Unveiled exhumed when everything twists into form
For you to see all in a perilous mourn
With long relentless devotion
The grant of these open wounds and this heartless rip

The drains are waiting
For the loss of your blood

Enter all simple solutions
The center of this wasteland
So barren and bleak, so feeble and weak
With a quick flash of ice in your chest
Like falling into a mine field, face first

Is this the snap of your filament or the grimmest devout
Is this the snap of your neck rung red hung in this rope

I will not let this subside
For the still beating heart that is buried inside
The depths of old to the births of war

The weak will beg, swaggering in decent
The weak will beg, of instant revelations
The weak will beg, in risk to repent
The weak will beg, for death again and again and again

The shattered screams of a people unfulfilled
With the sight and with the sound
The reign of steel, their blood unbound

Is this the snap of your filament or the grimmest devout
Is this the snap of your neck rung red hung in this rope

I will not let this subside
For the still beating heart that is buried inside
The depths of old to the births of war

The weak will beg, swaggering in decent
The weak will beg, of instant revelations
The weak will beg, in risk to repent
The weak will beg, for death again and again and again

[Solo]

The weak will beg, swaggering in decent
The weak will beg, of instant revelations
The weak will beg, in risk to repent
The weak will beg, for death again and again and again
And again and again and again


10. Into The Pit

Deep in the pit and lying alone
Where death has reared itself a throne
We're all the good, the bad
The worst and the best
And where they land is their eternal rest

Foul plays of passion
At twilight's dim
In joy of woe, of good and sin
Winds of storm and fates overcast
Darkly my presence
Is now your past

Join the insanity
Or die as you fall
Into the pit!
The mass production
And the killing of all
Into the pit!
The future screams for help
Are fading away
Into the pit!
The world tomorrow
Will it die for today?
Into the pit!

[Solo]

So in the sad, silent watches of night
The lonely pathway envisions my sight
Echoes of laughter
And boundless cries
So here I wander under infinite skies

Join the insanity
Or die as you fall
Into the pit!
The mass production
And the killing of all
Into the pit!
The future screams for help
Are fading away
Into the pit!
The world tomorrow
Will it die for today?
Into the pit!


11. The Victorious Dead

Can you hear us when we scream
Of our burdened beliefs
Ending all sanity
The wrong to right, indeed I wonder
The promise to break instead to suffer

Can you see us when we bleed
With wounds a mile deep
Spraying profusely
The pain to feel indeed it grows
The tables to tune instead to fuel

Something inside us fades
When weakness turns into trying
We all must carry on
For the slaughtered and the dying

Can you feel us when we kill
Everything that you have built
We must stop at nothing
The wrong to right, ha!
Indeed I wonder
The promise you broke, instead you suffer

Something inside us fades
When weakness turns into trying
We all must carry on
For the slaughtered and the dying

[Solo]

Something inside us fades
When weakness turns into trying
We all must carry on
For the slaughtered and the dying

We all must carry on
For the slaughtered and the dying
We all must carry on
For the slaughtered and the dying
