01. Red Tide Rising

Lyrics by Ben Ward
Chaos is calling, the kingdoms are falling
The planets collide in the sky
The old ones command, by a curse or by hand
That we've come to the end of our times
Thoughts paralysed, a red tide will rise
Dystopia seen through cephalopod eyes
Creatures reborn, from weird tales untold
Visions of horror, dimensions unknown to this world

Gods are descending, a force unrelenting
Cthulhu will rise from the sea
Turning blood red and awaking the dead
From their aeons of suffering sleep
Monoliths rise, to fiery skies
Empires dead in the shadow of flies
Serpents unwind, to torture and bind
No one survives the ultimate fall of mankind

Atlantis will rise!
The kraken alive!
These are fortean times!

No sanctuary, no hail Mary,
No visionary......can save you from what has begun!

Infidels fall to their knees and they start
Praying to something that's never been there in their hearts

Searing white light from the guardians flesh
Azrael rising, wings of the angel of death

No sanctuary, no hail Mary,
No visionary......can save you from what has begun!

This is leviathan!
Death of the sun!
Age of darkness has won.


02. Stand For Something

Lyrics by Ben Ward
How many chances do I get to find redempion?
When I've been low so many times
I've hit the bottom far too many times to mention
But I've paid for all my crimes

Well I know I've done the wrong things
But I wanna tell you one thing
Cos' you've got to stand for something
Or you're gonna fall for nothing

What doesn't kill us makes us stronger in the long run
And I'm not afraid to die
I've been so close to losing everything I cared for
But I refuse to lose my mind

Well I know I've done the wrong things
But I wanna tell you one thing
Cos' you've got to stand for something
Or you're gonna fall for nothing

My only master is the man I see in the mirror
He's done me more harm than he knows
I know the grass aint always greener on the upside
But it's the place that I call home

Well I know I've done the wrong things
But I wanna tell you one thing
Cos' you've got to stand for something
Or you're gonna fall for nothing


03. Acid Trial

Lyrics by Ben Ward
Set sail on the good ship levitation
Eyes wired shut with fascination
Cold blooded silence in the vacuum
Astronauts dining in the backroom
Words go unspoken and deeds go undone
The mark of the devil engraved on the sun
Freaks and fanatics all losing their mind
No one believed in the world that they've all left behind

Further to the east for liberation
Falling in line for medication
Drug addled comfort in the vacuum
Dinosaurs choking in the bathroom
Saturn is calling its children back home
The eyes of medusa have turned them to stone
Predators wait for the breathing to stop
Clinging to life til the very last drop

Coursing through veins as it cuts to the bone
Talking to someone but I'm all alone
Weight of the world has me pinned to the floor
The doctor don't mind so he's giving me more

Ghosts come and go but they don't know my name
Something is different yet always the same
Brain cannot function and hands cannot feel
State of a mind at large, noghing is real

Nothing is real
Nothing is real
Nothing is real
Nothing is real


04. The Filthy & The Few

Lyrics by Ben Ward
You line 'em up and we'll knock 'em down
You hit the lights and we'll hit the town
You're on the dole, we're on the lam
Born free to ride, we don't give a damn

You live by the law but we live for sin
We fight the war but we'll never win
We're born to lose but baby that's alright
We'll keep on ridin' through the night

Back down, the open road
The only road we've ever known
Step aside cos' we're coming through
We are the filty and the few

We're hot as hell and you're a stone cold queen
You see our faces on your tv screen
We got no money, we got no friends
We'll keep on ridin' til the livin' end

Back down, the open road
The only road we've ever known
Step aside cos' we're coming through
We are the filty and the few


05. Save Me From Myself

Lyrics by Ben Ward
I've seen the bodies piled high at the foot of the mountain
Scenic atrocities on a technicolour breeze
Midnight assassins swooping down from the clouds of venus
They steal my thunder......but the lightning's what I need

The sun will burn, the planets turn
And I'm always going to be here
The ship of dreams ain't what it seems
So I'm always going to be here
Dead of night, an endless flight
And I'm always going to be here
Another ride, I may have died
But I'm always going to be here

I've heard the cries of gods that fell in the fields of asgard
I've seen the beasts that roam the worlds beneath the sea
I've got a morbid fascination with a faux messiah
One they call the saviour, but nobody's saving me

The sun will burn, the planets turn
And I'm always going to be here
The ship of dreams ain't what it seems
So I'm always going to be here
Dead of night, an endless flight
And I'm always going to be here
Another ride, I may have died
But I'm always going to be here

This is an ode to my condition
I owe it all to my affliction
Prayers go unasnswered and I turn from the sun
Demons lead me, into oblivion

Oh, wont you save me from myself
Come on and save me from myself
Oh, wont you save me from myself
You've got to save me from myself


06. The Fog

Lyrics by Ben Ward
A nameless horror, eye for an eye
An ancient lust for vengeance lies beneath the tide
Malefic demons, here comes the night
One hundred winters dormant, sworn that six must die

A celebration, a ceremony of sin........as the fog rolls in
A celebration, a ceremony of sin........as the fog rolls in

This witching hour, these sacred shores
These shadows cast into the depths for ever more
A mist is stirring, the moon is full
Sea dogs arise tonight, the golden cross will fall

A celebration, a ceremony of sin........as the fog rolls in
A celebration, a ceremony of sin........as the fog rolls in

Are you prepared for when the end of days arrives?
Who's gonna save you when nobody hears your cries?
Lock all your windows, turn off all the lights
Cos' death is out for you, it's coming here tonight

You've got nowhere to run, you've got nowhere to hide
A rotting horror creeping slowly with the tide
It's gonna hunt you like a pack of hungry dogs
No way to stop it, it's coming in the fog

I don't believe in fortune, best of luck or bad
Or that your riches make you happy or make you sad
I don't believe in witches, deities or gods
But I believe in death, there's something in the fog

There's something in the fog
There's something in the fog
There's something in the fog
There's something in the fog


07. Return To Mars

Lyrics by Ben Ward
A warning sign
Leave earth behind
Into the stars
Return to Mars

Depart the planet of the living dead tonight....alright

This astral tomb
Mankind is doomed
Funeral of stars
Return to Mars

Depart the planet of the living dead tonight....alright


08. Death Of Aquarius

Lyrics by Ben Ward
Lights out, silver in the darkness
Shadows of aquarius
Fading with the dawn
Freedom, banished from utopia
Exiled to hysteria
A new age is born
Night follows day as life flitters away
On the quest for the ultimate high
Ride for tomorrow, we beg steal or borrow
To be where the earth meets the sky

Vengeance, religion of the outlaw
The honour that you die for
The clearing of the mist
Martys, the children and the stardust
Become one with the universe
The order of the fist
Carry the burden for chaos and murder
The blame always laid at your door
You reap what you sow, it's the one law you know
When you've chosen to live by the sword

Scar them, brand them as the outcasts
The faithless and the hopeless, the faceless in the flames
Hound them, hound them ever after
No gods and no masters, no duties, no shame
Lights out, silver in the darkness
Shadows of aquarius fading with the dawn
Freedom, banised from utopia
Exiled to hysteria, a new age is born
Vengeance, religion of the outlaw
The honour that you die for, the clearing of the mist
Martys, the children and the stardust
Become one with the universe, the order of the fist
Scar them, brand them as the outcasts
The faithless and the hopeless, the facelsess in the flames
Hound them, hound them ever after
No gods and no masters, no duties, no shame


09. The Bishops Wolf

Lyrics by Ben Ward
Full moon brooding over the earth
Empty prayer now for what it's worth
Band of liars all got something to hide
Heading north, all under the eye

Skin crawling at the sight of the moon
Blood frozen by the reading of runes
Paranoia starts to eat at your brain
Unholy curse to drive you into the grave

Atone for all your sins now
Wash away all the pain
Make your peace with god now
Before you go insane

Execration on the heads of the nine
Cruel dementia starts to prey on their minds
A plague upon them for the wrong they have done
A malediction in the light of the sun

Atone for all your sins now
Wash away all the pain
Make your peace with god now
Before you go insane

Leave the city under cover of night
A guilty conscience and a fear of the bite
Savage visions in the dark of the trees
Hear the howling of the wolf on the breeze

Invocation of a suicide pact
Book of tongues decreed there's no going back
Turn to fire for the ashes you crave
Bishop's wolf has led the nine to the grave

Atone for all your sins now
Wash away all the pain
Make your peace with god now
Before you go insane


10. A Eulogy For The Damned

Lyrics by Ben Ward
Beggars, thieves and lifes downtrodden
Come to me as the king of the damned
They hang their actions on my blackened outlook
They take their lives by the slight of my hand
They bought a ticket to the gates of heaven
But all the saints see them coming and they run

No chance for reason
No hope at all
No slight return to grace, but a long, long way to fall
A sorry sign of weakness
A silly game to play
A sad song of what becomes of the souls on judgement day

Dead eyes to find you
No tales to tell
Been lost so long I learnt to hunt by sense of smell
Old hands are broken
Old veins are torn
Cos' we're all dying from the day that we are born

We're trying, we're torn
We're dying from the day that we were born
We're trying, we're torn
We're dying from the day that we were born
