Track Name: Born
Born in a prison; harsh, and cold; this comfort
Detached and blank within a man-made burial shelter
Stamped down like shit - survival built on power
Gluttonous scum look down on us from up in their watchtower

I take their light and snuff it out - blinding the enemy
I pry the frightened eyes of weaker men open to see

Born in surveillance of this massive panopticon
Weak, cheap and frightened - the perpetual state of humans
Hemmed into cages working for the greater good of none
With jackboots closing in to smother the sun

I take their light and snuff it out - blinding the enemy
I pry the frightened eyes of weaker men open to see

Born into blackness
Born into bloodshed
Track Name: Bleeding Crown
Burned by the sunlight
Heaven coming down
Eyes full of wreckage - dead
Hollow king in a bleeding crown

From the sea
They arise
As we suffer a fall
Now the skies
Full of light
Are a clarion call
In the streets
There are flames
Creeping in with the dread
On the air
Bittersweet
Putrid stench of those lucky enough to be dead

...Spreads like a disease...
Track Name: Revenant
Lifeless eyes
Thousand mile stare
Dead introvert
Consumed by fear

I see the face
What is to come
I now behold
Revenant

Asphyxiated
So deathly still
I bring the cure
Swallow your pills

I see the face
What is to come
I now behold
Revenant

Taking hold
Take effect
Unholy breath
Upon your neck
I take it all
Permanent
You know the name
Revenant

I see the face
What is to come
I now behold
Revenant
Track Name: Schematics for a Ruined Utopia
Flowing - Bleeding
Pissing in the wind
Fire - Pariah
Burn away the sins
Charred is this feeble skin

The blinding lunacy from juxtaposed wings
The glib indifference of pseudo god kings
We're not so naive as to beg for change
But we demand that you should be ashamed

Sacred - Sordid
Blindfold that tightly grips
Cowards- Power
Behold the scales that tip
Behold this flesh; it rips

The blinding lunacy from juxtaposed wings
The glib indifference of pseudo god kings
We're not so naive as to beg for change
But we demand that you should be ashamed

Ruined - Schematics - Ruined
Ruined - Schematics - Utopia

The blinding lunacy from juxtaposed wings
The glib indifference of pseudo god kings
We're not so naive as to beg for change
But we demand that you should be ashamed
Track Name: Knives
I learn a lesson
I bide my time
I do not stop till I take all that is mine
I grip the blade
I sculpt the flesh
I Tear and rip and rend until I see you perfect

We move as shadows - in a dying land
The blind and ignorant - Time's slipping sands
Pierced through the throat - I stop you cold
Your eyes are colourless - an icy grip takes hold
Track Name: The Deceased
I Deny
Say Nothing
Have some pride
Slice of Heaven
Rotting here
In the dead of night

Betrayed
By the light
I saw the seventh gate
Anaemia - emaciate
Dethroned to lie in wait

Flash of red
No regrets
No tears - don't dare
Crimson stain
Padded cell
Insanity - don't fucking care

Betrayed
By the light
I saw the seventh gate
Anaemia - emaciate
Dethroned to lie in wait

The Deceased still remain
Track Name: Toil
Upon a cross
Facing the wind
Slowing the blood
Dormant within
And such is man
Animal; rash
Tired; embittered
Working to revert to ash

We Toil
We're damned
We Toil
Until the day we're in the ground

Drowing in wealth
Hoarding their gold
Starving the weak
Our doom foretold
And such is man
A beast of wrath
Hateful and cold
Working blindly towards death

We Toil
We're damned
We Toil
Until the day we're in the ground

Liars, Cowards, Killers, Thieves
Blood falls, like raindrops, we shall never, be clean
Again...

Upon a cross
Facing the wind
Slowing the blood
Dormant within
And such is man
A beast of wrath
Tired; embittered
Working blindly towards death

We Toil
We're damned
We Toil
Until the day we're in the ground
