01. Contact Wait Out

Spent rounds
The coffin nails
On your empires fall
Icy silence
No recourse
All crucibles ignored
Forward into darkness
Futures unknown
Dire incursions rage
No one man stands alone

Await the call
Oncoming storm
Let come what may
The bodies of your dead can wait till dawn

Sentinel of destiny
Enemy engaged
Numbered with the dead
Take your glory to the grave
Peace - dream of the wise
War - the history of man
Once refined, now demonized
Hatred overran

Await the call
Oncoming storm
Let come what may
No light so full of hope as that of dawn

Duty bound, to die without defeat
Awaken life immortal, one last bitter retreat

Contact made - wait out... Send command received

When none remain, and all are overrun
...Objectives seized


02. Inside The Wire

Outer defences neutralized
Lessons in munitions are reprised
Lancet never hammer
Caution must prevail
Concealment deep inside the wire
Where instincts never fail

Through fortified lines
Last phase intercept
Based in destruction
Silently shreds

Exist longer under threat
Engaging to replay the debt
Damage to infliction
Patterns lie half formed
Assaults never retracted
In the hope to halt the war

Laying waste, subversion
Rendering in chaos with dead ammunition

Undermine defences - facilitate
Saboteurs inside the wire - interpenetrate
Inner defenses - eradicate
Inside the wire - too late…too late


03. Honour

Ground assault begins
By order open fire
Vanguard - respect is borne
Proud to hold first battle front none superior
... None superior

Axis ever turning (advance as one)
War's attrition has begun
Intense the battle harvest
Through the crimson mud
Now thoughts turn and decline
Unswerving loyalty advance is one
Advance is one

Weary from the start - at dawn's early light
Silently torn away - unto the end of life

As night has fallen
Far distant horizons afire
Beyond pursuit of victory
In belligerence and pride
A war to end wars
With loyalty above all - except honour
Loyalty above all


04. Suspect Hostile

Through the ages
As tensions rise
All hostile and unknown
Witnessing demise

When lives are worthless
Under friendly fire
Suspected hostile
Target acquired

Attained tac-recon - regain misuse
Spying eyes - reap the truth
Evolution proficiency
Air track engagement futility
Visual angle - 12 m-rad of arc
Filling scores - symbols coming dark

No defiance - gather in all prey
Track rapid fire - impact point displayed
Hostile target verified
Position traced - you cannot hide
Mass destruct - initiate the cause
Range within low flight - acquisition within war

All tributaries - ballistics in disruption
Confirmed kills integrity - N.C.T.R. corruption
Escape is to evade

Rancour empowers
It's creation sets the trap
In vertical dimensions
New lightning wars to which man will
Bridge the gap


05. 7th Offensive

Shadows amongst the cloudburst
Maelstrom returns
A darkened shroud begins descent
Wasted men secured
As pulses fade
Seventh offensive laid down
Project D.O.4
Heroes made dishonoured ground

Artillery now silent
Fires forever stilled
Chlorine burnt the throat
Of all blood agent kills
Gradients of syndrome
Clouds of war enraged
The day is lost, the night has won
All ends at point blank range

Maximum casualties
The pointless slaughter
Wiped out generations
Man, en masse destroyer

Final road to glory
Surrendered life eternally
No survivors
Now proclaim the call for victory


06. Valour

Action this day
Ordnance at full release
Frontiers crossed and violated
Remote the chance for peace
Acts of valour
Fortify advocate
Engage a strange alliance
Embittered against hate

Second battle drawing near
March again on darkened moors
Defiant without fear
Belief a mortal cause

Paradoxic triumph
Foretold cost too high
Here gods teach man nothing
Uncensured life decry
Legions robbed of faith
Senses fractured in despair
Main force of hardened souls
Retro-active in nightmares

Lifeless splinters of man
Counterparts as one

Splinters of man
Counterparts as one
Now in times of peace
Rain falls on lonely graves
Now in times of peace rain falls on lonely graves

Vast stone assemblies
Symbolic sacrifice
Known only unto your god
Hold anguish over life


07. K-Machine

Erasing all known species
Extinction seen
Corrupting with intent
Inhuman kill machine
Superior objectives
Precedence
Killing fields of continents
Attack the best defence

With duty first, directed by your decree
Bleak world divisional, man the last enemy

Victims on the threshold
Casualties of greed
Dreaming to survive
Mankind now born to breed
Reinforced without belief
Dominance as one
Dictator, sanctify all
Prey to none

With duty first, directed by your decree
Bleak world divisional, man the last enemy

Carnivorous deception
A dark ability
Zero tolerance evolves
Mass fatalities
Arrogant compulsion
Towards a violent end
When you're digging your own grave in ignorance
You alone descend

The last hunter prevails
Overlord - imposing will
Another life, one more to grieve
Status: probable kill.... confirmed


08. A Hollow Truce

First hour approaches
Perpetuating grief
Empowering to strike down
Sowing the defeat
Their centre - line lies broken
We will not forget
Though faith will never falter
Near life - closer to death

Exhilarated fervour
Fear is for the weak
Another rank and file falls
One more fills the breach
Formation under heavy fire
Unable to strike back
Seized at disadvantage
Retreat harder than attack

View the pre-dawn aura
Carve stone in hollow ground
a Dark contract of sorrow
Unknown.... no names found

Sanity in question
Enemy within
Position of no error
Mortal strength to win
Treaty for an armistice
Revert to battle plan
Entrenched in delusion
The last vestige of man

Forever gone now, memories of the fall
No semblance of an order lost
Lost paths - direction clear once more


09. Pride

Epitomizing horror
Echoes it's bleakest past
With willing replication
Let perspective last
Breaking deadlocks
World bleeding inside
Now the tide is turning
In ever present pride

Strategies executed
All now beyond defeat
Analysis, no rise to flaws
See failure as retreat

Rearguard advantage
Third battle forges close
Forceful and evasive
So proud, yet morose
Seeds of future discord
Suspicion, fear and hate
Never lying dormant
One by one negate

No last offensive
All resistance ceased
Forced down the final path
Forwards into peace


10. Covert Ascension

With all darkest manoeuvres
Now concealed
Technology asunder
Re-engineered

Total immersion in subterfuge
Propagated lies, denial of truths
The unseen image, a silent recollection
Subversive tactics, covered with deception

Reticent war machine
Hidden operation
Prowling evasively
In latent devastation

All missions silenced
Under the black banner
Repetitious action
Spectral their agenda

Indoctrination
Deemed classified
Holes within the net
The need to know intensifies

Massive restrictions
Reflective all sectors
Outside the radar
Parameter secure

Inherently to rend - a world of hurt to end
Knowledge will defend - covertly now ascend

Unsteadfast beliefs
Assassinated state
Conflict capacity
Aurora of hate
