01. Earth

[Narration:]
Earth, home to well over six billion people.
A most majestic and brilliant sight, when seen through the eyes of peace.
Foreboding, to say the lease when caught in the gears of the machine.
With the world blindfolded by the lust for power, wealth and control.
A perfect game board is laid out for two divine powers, to manipulate the pawns into position to carry out their conquest for global domination.

For you see, this world has many mysteries, and nothing is ever what it seems to be.
Every action starts with a thought,
Every thought comes from influence,
Every influence has its roots.
The world is either good or evil and this is where our story begins...


02. Forged In Fire

I stand before you as a sinner!
A mother fucking heathen dragged face-first down the road of treason.
Bound for the bowels of Hell, I'm always one step out of reach from the hand of God.
I'm always one step out of the reach from the hand of God.

You would never sleep if you know what's in my mind,
My vile thoughts; you would never close your eyes.
I walk in the shadows of heaven's light,
Hood up, head down.

Take a closer look into my eyes, there's a part of me I can't hide.
Take a closer look into my eyes, there's a part of me I can't hide.
Bring the pain!

Turn and run while you still have the chance,
I fell from grace and I'm not going back.
You come to me with the image of a better life,
I'm fucking fine with the life I have.
I'd rather burn than spend another second by your side.

In the valley of death,
I cast a shadow to block out the sun.
I am a monster accepting what I've become.
My faith was drowned in a sea of doubts,
Now the thorn-littered road is my only way out.

So I push on!
Iron willed, demonized.
Tongue forged in fire, hate in my eyes.
Celestial supremacy replaced with gloom.
Inhale aggression and exhale doom!

From the gutters we rise,
Into darkness descend.
Never meant for the light,
Through your bonds we transcend.
There is no time for sleep, (No time for sleep!)
Just time to reclaim the streets. (Reclaim the streets!)
How can you look down on me?
When I've buried you under my feet.

I stand before you as a sinner!
A mother fucking heathen dragged face-first down the road of treason.
Bound for the bowels of Hell, I'm always one step out of reach from the hand of God.

So I push on, demonized,
Tongue full of fire, hate in my eyes.
So I push on, demonized,
Tongue full of fire, hate in my eyes.
So I push on!


03. Soldiers Of Doomsday

Once again I'm faced with myself,
Standing before the shattered mirror,
Blood drips from my shard-shredded hands.

Oh God, if you are there,
Now's the time to answer all my prayers.
What have I done to put me here?
Dying alone entangled in fear.

I've never felt so alive,
Fueled with adrenaline,
I'll carry you with me!

Move! Move! Move! Move! Go! Go! Go! Go!

The world can't slow down,
You can't kill what will not die!
Go!

Wingspans spread to keep the world within reach.
A promise to myself sealed with anguish,
That no matter how hard I fall,
I will always stand up stronger, harder.
A bigger man unleashing pain!

Oh God, if you are there,
Now's the time to answer all my prayers.
What have I done to put me here?
Dying alone entangled in fear.

There's nothing between us,
You think you know but you have no idea,
The horror that I've seen.
I'll scratch out my eyes,
To close the gates to my inner soul.
Break from this ball and chain,
Society and heretics.

The world can't slow us down,
You can't kill what will not die!

You don't give back,
You mean nothing to this world.


04. Approach The Podium

Condemned from a false pretense by the product of hope.
We blindly let them lead us.
Condemned from a false pretense by the product of hope.
We blindly let them lead us.
Let go of the life you know,
Chances are we aren't coming back.

Commander, approach the podium!
We, the people, have rallied under our flag.
Standing proud, you rid us of our fate.
Behind the gun, you're given all our faith.
And now we march to the pulse of the beating war drum,
Say goodnight and follow the setting sun.

Agendas of sovereignty masked by the mirage of hope and chance.
Our lady of liberty falls down to her knees bound and gagged.

The hammer of judgment falls on you.
The hammer of judgment falls on you.
I will never trust a man with the power of God,
A brain washed mind full of control.
I will never trust a man with the power of God!

Release the grip that binds us all,
To a cold, quick doom six feet deep.
You don't have the bullets to kill us all.

We find ourselves backed into the wall,
No one at our side,
Never looking back we're ready to die!

Sealing the future in its shallow grave,
The dreams of man crushed within your grip.
Empires fall as your reign meets its end,
I stood still among the riled crowd.

Our eyes met and you knew I'd be the one to bring you down.
Nightmares can't warn you of the evil winds that are blowing your way.

Call to arms to stand by my side,
Our leaders that have failed us.
Take it back, gun them down heartlessly,
Our leaders have failed us.


05. Battle Scars

We climb to the top of the hill
To see what lies beneath.
Waiting for its time to feed
If, first, we don't kill each other.

Battle scars tell the tale of a life lived hard.
Empty souls left to ponder the question, "why?"
Drowning bodies climb to stay above the line.
Cannibals arise.

Now, shut your eyes, cover your ears
And stand in line.

We cannot afford the voice of discontent.
Shut down the oppressed.
Silence the mouths that spit the venomous.

Hell on earth.
No one escapes on judgment day.
Something has to give.

We climb to the top of the hill
To see what lies beneath.
Waiting for its time to feed
If, first, we don't kill each other.

Bombs of peace shake the earth.


06. Chest And Horns

The roar of the lion rumbled through the earth.
Waves of terror run down through these spines.
He stopped the world with one final scream.
Left for dead we bond for a chance to survive.

Retreat to the stronghold.
Regroup, rebuild
We will stand up stronger.

The roar of the lion rumbled through the earth.
Waves of terror run down through these spines.
He stopped the world with one final scream.
Left for dead we bond for a chance to survive.

Turn the page to find them all ripped out.
Smoke rising from our smoldering dreams
Injects reality straight through our veins.

Prepare to endure, poised for disease.

Prey or hunt with the wolves?
We watched the choice
Consumed by their jaws.

Digression has set its course down
A ineluctable path.
When it pours we will have
The strength to endure.
Through trial and tribulation
We forge this tribal nation.

Here I am standing alone
Amongst the leeches and wolves.
Gut my insides.
Pick me apart.
Bottom feeding vultures can't kill a cold heart.

Here I am despite what you think,
Holding strong while the unchained anchor sinks.


07. Creed Of Tyrants

Wretched villains rise from the settled dust.
Creed of tyrants form from loss and tragedy.
Code of men stripped with no loyalty.

We sat on the fence-line
And hunted down angels.

With all hope lost, far and gone.
Fill the void of angst with
Whatever pieces fit.
Failure invites doubt into our eyes.

Strip the mind until thoughts run blank.
Rape the soul of ideals held close.
Life slips like sand between your fingertips.

Follow the henchmen upon a pale horse.
To lead into eternal truth.

One man mounted of wings rises to power.
Seven heads separate.
Forms the beast of revelation.
Kingdoms divided are brought to desolation.

Wretched villains rise from the settled dust.
Creed of tyrants form from loss and tragedy.
Code of men stripped with no loyalty.


08. Our Requiem

My friends.
My family.
I ask of you one final time to gather before me.
Tonight we shall leave this earth as legends.
Our only way to never die.

This will be our requiem.
In the company of death
We walk side by side.

Cast your differences aside
For the lives sacrificed.
I ask one final time to unite.
Earn the right to stand with pride.

We are in the company of death.
Cast your differences aside.

For the lives sacrificed to the earth
And for those still to come
We wash our hands of blood.

Carry with you the love of a mother
And a father's strength
May our names echo throughout history.

Glory, never given without a price.
Glory, gnawed clean from the hands that feed.
The world is at your fingertips, tear it apart.
Rip and cut until the view is clear as far as the eye can see.

Honor the Gods
And pay tribute to the human era.
A most humbling wind blows
At the dawn of extinction.

Fire signals that sails are near.
Vestals of vile creatures appear.
Rest well tonight.
Tomorrow we walk through the flames of hell.

This will be our requiem.
Our testament to the heavens.


09. Classic Struggle

We have long traveled these separate paths.
Our own quests to the meaning of life.
Low or high all roads end.
The only importance is what you have left behind.

What do you have to show?
Did you take advantage of being alive?

We cannot control the future of the world
If we cannot control ourselves.
Free minds spark the fire of progress,
Birth of an uprising.

The power within each and all of you
Is the power of change.
The power to take control.

Here we are old friend.
Face to face in me I find you,
My biggest adversary.

The clock is wearing down.
Arrangements wearing thin.
Masks decompose forcing shadows to the light
Expose the truth if you have nothing to hide.

To my enemies, you stand for everything I live to crush.
My reflection manifests in flesh and bone.

De-winged, ripped down from the fucking sky.
Dragged to dark where the angels dare not tread.
I'll see you on the battlefield.

To my enemies, you stand for everything I live to crush.
My reflection manifests in flesh and bone.


10. The Great Stone War

It's all boiled down to this.
A futile attempt to sway the struggle.
Were all destined to perish.
Put down by your self seeking greed.

With the great clashing of titans
Unveil the power of contrasts.

Crush them like a stampede of mammoths.
Wipe them from the face of the earth.

Hold.

With our shield or on it
Fight with the strength of one hundred men.
Forcing out a battle cry.
Straight through the opposition.

Angels, warlocks arise.
Now the world half drenched in blood shall die.

Crush them like a stampede of mammoths.
Wipe them from the face of the earth.

It's all boiled down to this.
A futile attempt to sway the struggle.
Were all destined to perish.
Put down by your self seeking greed.

With the great clashing of titans
Unveil the power of contrasts.

Angels, warlocks arise.
Now the world half drenched in blood shall die.


11. Tides Of Change

Soon the rains will come to wash away the blood
The empire walls will crumble into dust
And the trees will retake their land
When all is said and done
The human race will only be a mere footprint in the sand
Soon to be washed away
