01. Descending Upon Us

This is our call: To see these idols fall
Drag them out into the light
Let fate devour whole
This is your fault
You fool of faith untrue that we should face the grave with such a blackened view

Oh, (this pain is true) we see the damage done in the eyes of those, turning away

Save your plea for the day that we suffer the wake of this treason
Rain like fire descending upon us in holy resolve
Upon this ground

Hollow name of five encircled frame
Deception incarnate: Receive my vow of hate

Oh, (this pain is true) see how the blood will run in the eyes of those, turning away

Save your plea for the day that we suffer the wake of this treason
Rain like fire descending upon us in holy resolve
Upon this ground

We see the damage done
Resounding desecration
We see the damage done
Blackened insurrection

Suppress the pain of mind as long as you can bear
And feel the desperation clawing from within
They say the truth is found when Hell is at your doorstep
You'd better pray to see that time come to pass

Save your plea for the day that we suffer the wake of this treason
Rain like fire descending upon us in holy resolve
Upon this ground


02. LifeWar

Born from the fire clean, crawling through the dirt like war
5 years, my mother gave a voice for war
10, I was dead, born again with eyes for war
By 15, hate was the name of my war

Wash me in the river, give me to the pain of LifeWar
LifeWar

20 years gone, and father told me life was like war
Hands to the bone, 25 years of war
30, I wake to the sound of souls at war
I will pass through, buried with the flag of my war

Wash me in the river, give me to the pain of LifeWar
LifeWar


03. Collapsing

I see the weight of hollow death residing in you
Take now your final breath
Exhale the truth
I see the fear of nothing left
Dead fragments of youth
You hold it in yourself
I feel it too

I mourn your blindness
I die along
And swallow darkness
In misery is where I belong

Collapsing in on yourself
I don't know why I try
Collapsing in on yourself
I don't know why you deny

I know the light is burning dim and dying in you
I know the pain that lies within
I feel it too

I mourn your blindness
I die along
And swallow darkness
In misery is where I belong

Collapsing in on yourself
I don't know why I try
Collapsing in on yourself
I don't know why you deny

No vow of silence
No remission of truth

Collapsing in on yourself
I don't know why I try
Collapsing in on yourself
I don't know why you deny


04. This Is The Line

Fire surround, in cleansing repose
Letting the filth, like venom it flows
Scar, the mark, remind us the pain
Breaking the bones that will reach out again
And now we will rise to conquer them all
Many will challenge, many will fall
Bring us your vile, malicious of mind
We will bring their necks to the line

Scum of the earth: Power of air
You wanted the world
We'll bury you there

This is a battle
We are the blade
And this is the line, this is the line
All that they build we will break
This is the line

And though you will fight, you will not return
For when in the fields, your temples we burned
And scattered the ash upon every grave to honor the ones that you had betrayed

This is a battle
We are the blade
And this is the line, this is the line
All that they build we will break
This is the line

You wanted the world
We'll bury you there

This is a battle
We are the blade
And this is the line, this is the line
All that they build we will break
This is the line

Whose side are you on?


05. Driving Nails

I was the light
I was the quiet heart
I was the place we used to dwell
And when the cold would tear your life apart, I was the warmth that you had felt

What have I become?
Thoughts like shadows swelling through my mind
What have I become?
Something else inside...

It's driving nails into my soul
Angels from my door
Driving nails into my soul
Something inside...

I was the blood inside your broken heart
I was the stone that you had held

What have I become?
Thoughts like shadows swelling through my mind
What have I become?
Something else inside...

It's driving nails into my soul
Angels from my door
Driving nails into my soul
Something inside...

I close my eyes
Search for you
Retracing every step

It's driving nails into my soul
Angels from my door
Driving nails into my soul
Something inside...


06. The World Is A Thorn

The gavel has fallen, along with the rest
Are we expected to settle for this?
Bring us the plague, lead us away
Blacken tomorrow with ash of today
Can't you see the fabric of our standards wearing thin?
See your world in its grave at the hands of the enslaved

Won't bow to man
Won't bow to government
Won't trust in a failed system of self-fulfilling lust
Won't love a world where my God is mocked
I defy

Oh, a kiss on the serpent's head
We walk in the line of deceit, the walking dead
Can't you feel the ground of our discretion giving way?
Refusal of hope, solution demise
Bury the truth in a mountain of lies

Won't bow to man
Won't bow to government
Won't trust in a failed system of self-fulfilling lust
Won't love a world where my God is mocked
I defy

This is what you try to sell me: Subjective nothingness
Pull your sickness from my throat
Let me breathe the truth

Won't bow to man
Won't bow to government
Won't bow to greed
Won't bow to false hope
Won't bow to self
Won't bow to modern code
Won't sell my soul to a dead world
I defy


07. Tie This Around Your Neck

This is the age of the dead
The generation of pagan and self-led
You can feel the bones shatter beneath our feet
The blood of lust staining our teeth
We feed on pain, disorder, delusion, the filth of the modern plague
And in this reign of Godlessness, the heathens will say...

Tie this around your neck
Fool

Save your breath my son
Just carry on home
Time will prey on you
And take you through Hell

I've heard every empty line
Every curse, every word that you redefine
I will turn my back on the coming storm
Won't lie in the grave, I will be reborn
They say...

Tie this around your neck
Fool

Save your breath my son
Just carry on home
Time will prey on you
And take you through Hell

Confusion reigns
Pride of the hopeless herd
Blind to the will, blind to the word
They will drown in the rule of man, helpless and alone

Save your breath my son
Just carry on home
Time will prey on you
And take you through Hell

Tie this around your neck
Fool


08. Just Breathe

So now you try, but the blade is primed to just cut you down again
To no avail, this fix divine was wrought to do you in

Seemingly endless, beckoning debt
Vacant and nameless, where is the end?
Aching just to endure again sweet loss
Able again to feel
This is real

Just breathe
Suffer again
Look back
Stand in the wake and breathe
Wait for the end
Fight back
This isn't over

One single touch will further crush your corrupted state of mind
You carve the way for regret to take you further down the line

Seemingly endless, beckoning debt
Vacant and nameless, where is the end?
Aching just to endure again sweet loss
Able again to feel
This is real

Just breathe
Suffer again
Look back
Stand in the wake and breathe
Wait for the end
Fight back
This isn't over

This isn't over


09. Shallow Water

Remember the threat from which it was said. "You will reap every seed that you sow"
And the tomb where you lay is the bed that you made
Be still in the pain that you wrote
See now, every scar is a choice you make
Every choice is a vow you take
Take pity upon your fate, you coward

Sleepwalk through Heaven's call, no forest for the trees
Unlearn every step you take, it'll bring you to your knees
Tread...

Shallow water
Safe from the weight, the burden of sacrifice
Sons and daughters, pray for the rain
May it redeem their eyes

And now we have seen what complacency brings as the blind are assuming the lead
Dig deep in the hole where you buried your soul, in the river from where it bleeds

See now, every scar is a choice you make
Every choice is a vow you take
Take pity upon your fate, you coward

Sleepwalk through Heaven's call, no forest for the trees
Unlearn every step you take, it'll bring you to your knees
Tread...

Shallow water
Safe from the weight, the burden of sacrifice
Sons and daughters, pray for the rain
May it redeem their eyes

Take now your eternal stand before it pulls you in

Shallow water
Safe from the weight, the burden of sacrifice
Sons and daughters, pray for the rain
May it redeem their eyes


10. Feel As Though You Could

Rebellion
Oh, cheap thrills and vacant youth
Carry out your own will
Shovel deep and bury truth
Social stain, punk wreck, mother's own defect
Sing that song you know so well
Sing it one foot in Hell
Eyes wide black
Turn your back

Oh, how the foolish will see
How every man he will bleed

The vultures circle, halo of the dead
Another vicious cycle, swallow what you're fed
And now the vultures circle, halo of the dead
Another vicious cycle
Be true to your dissent

Somehow feel as though you could
Somehow, in all your petty suffering
Burn this down

Rejection of weak trends and fake hate
This is what you're fighting for?
Some fools mistake
I will devour you
I'll overpower you
Rise from the ashes, screaming eternity

The vultures circle, halo of the dead
Another vicious cycle, swallow what you're fed
And now the vultures circle, halo of the dead
Another vicious cycle
Be true to your dissent

Somehow feel as though you could
Somehow, in all your petty suffering
Burn this down

Ignite upon these words and breathe defeat
Your shallow deeds make Hell for wood and stone, flesh and bone, this alone

Somehow feel as though you could
Somehow, in all your petty suffering
Burn this down


11. Blood In The Tears

Don't come on quietly when you draw near
Don't go on lightly
Don't leave me here
I wither quickly in winter's cold, but carry onward like I was told

And I wait for a sign

Like blood in the tears of all my enemies (So they will see)
Knowing the pain the way they should
Blood in the tears of all my enemies (Given to me)
Leaving a trail to where you stood

And when it's quiet, when you can hear, I beg you take me away from here

Like blood in the tears of all my enemies (So they will see)
Knowing the pain the way they should
Blood in the tears of all my enemies (Given to me)
Leaving a trail to where you stood

Cleansing red
Wake the dead

Like blood in the tears of all my enemies (So they will see)
Knowing the pain the way they should
Blood in the tears of all my enemies (Given to me)
Leaving a trail to where you stood


12. Desire The Pain

This is your dying will.
Forced to feed and over again.
Flies to filth, greed, wealth.
And we take what they give every piece that we can hold.
Is it all that we are?
Is it all we seek to be?

Soiled hands will meet us there.
Choking the light from our souls.

I desire the pain.
I desire the weight.
And I will face my grave.

Draining the life from our veins into a curse that we despise.
What a sickening way to spend our lives.

Soiled hands will meet us there.
Choking the light from our souls.

I desire the pain.
I desire the weight.
And I will face my grave.
I desire remorse.
I desire release.
And I will chase this away...
Away....

I desire the pain.
I desire the weight.
And I will face my grave.
I desire remorse.
I desire release.
And I will chase this away...
I desire the pain.
I desire the weight.
And I will face my grave.
I desire remorse.
I desire release.
And I will chase this away.
I desire the pain...
