Track Name: Trees
A land so turned to dismal decay
people just living day to day
the stench of waste reeks through the air
the trees are screaming in despair
as ashes all but cover the ground
our race will nary make a sound
whats left will fall to blackened night
our legacy, the ongoing fight

There is nothing left for us
this world has grown so cold
the dreams I once had
will never be fulfilled
I cry out to the night sky
tear my soul in winters dusk
what little pain will die away
nothing more is left to say


Do not shed a tear nor drop one bit
of blood for all we have known is but a lie
we were meant to die
and if after we have gone there
remains only our song and the
coldest breath of breeze
the death of the Trees

Death will slowly permeate
as is just to our fate
life was just a piece of glass
never fucking meant to last
We all drown in our own filth
no way one to save ourselves
liberated we are free
but choking now
death of the trees

Burned and charred our world remains
nothing left – cannot be saved
if we continue on this path
the lights will slowly fade to black
and choking on the fumes of death
the trees will slowly take our breath
the world we've allowed to burn in hell
with natures fury, we're expelled

The spirit will never parish
though the body may bleed
the soul will not wither
we are the disease
the mind cannot wander
wherever it may please
Mother, now is fading
Death of the trees

Death will slowly permeate
as is just to our fate
life was just a piece of glass
never fucking meant to last


Do not shed a tear nor drop one bit
of blood for all we have known is but a lie
we weren't meant to die
and if after we have gone there
remains only our song
a distant revery
the death of the trees
Track Name: A Great Leap in the Dark
a great leap in the dark
advance toward the end
something new waiting
reach for the stars

if I keep waiting
i won't become anything
if I don't rise the
the strong will bury the weak
I must stand for what I think is right
a great leap of faith
I conquer all that I face

winds will change and some will call me by
my true name, though long since forgotten
I can only hope this is a new start
one last great leap in the dark

pushing, pulling, draw to the light
screaming, crying down of ever-night
we may just be damned
but none know all the mysteries of our world

forward advance, great leap in the dark

if I keep waiting
i won't become anything
if I don't rise the
the strong will bury the weak
I must stand for what I think is right
a great leap of faith
I conquer all that I face
Track Name: Grey Waters
Storm the depths, lifes begun
Set out under blood-red sun
moon is fading back in time
Follow starlight as our sign
beckon call lost from the lips
body becomes part of ship
adventure takes sons and daughters
set out into the grey waters

Waves, through the blackened night
sounds that may yield the fright
Tale of the grey waters
Waves crash against the shore
nightmares instilled forevermore
death in the grey waters

Exhilarating-oh to feel
once alive we will not yield
only obscure lies in wait
to hold us back- our inner hate
cutting blade will mash the wake
ripping through the life at stake
but boiling blood cannot be chilled
only fate will have us killed

I've been waiting for this time
sons have hold out
last in line
blood is running thin tonight
sea breeze that takes away the fright
Grey waters lurking deep
something left to haunt my sleep
one lost voyage to the night
what day brings with dying light

Pace yourselves our fights begun
nature knows what it has won
we are just one more weak link
We shall not die tonight!
careless fear will undo all
the calmest night before the fall
though we can't tell wrong from right
We shall not die tonight!

Reflected in the cold, dark waves
eyes shine back, frozen and glazed
years are lost in a swirl of tide
fear is sinking deep inside
nothing is left at all to lose
only one guessing seems to be you
wait as the waters twist and pull
knowing, can you ever let go?

Salvaging whats left of us
wounds dug in deep
we will not be vanquished
to demons of the deep
though they rip and tear at us
the worms will never win
I've fought against the tide
we'll find a way to win
Track Name: Red Sun Rising
light greets the day
what is left
moon hides
taking our breath
there in distant time
nothing more
will the sun arise waiting for....

lightning on the earth brings warm new life
something in the dark cold like a knife
over arching beauty of the suns greatest rays
waiting as the never ending cycles fades away

sifting through the great sands of time
watching the planets taking their design
nothing is left but the song here unsung
watching the horizon – the dawn of the sun

strike, arise – the sun takes the night away
dark surprise – this world takes my breath away
might, demise – the end of our every day
nothing it seems can save us (save from the sun)
burning bright – the fire of eternity
what will come – when to the cold it flees
night will reign – nothing more to see
life will be bound – by the red rising sun

horizon so red
like the blood of new day
so dark
as the sun starts to fade
we're so lost in our own delusions
so distraught, destiny's not in our hands

strike, arise – the sun takes the night away
dark surprise – this world takes my break away
might, demise – the end of our every day
nothing it seems can save us (save from the sun)

hiding in the distant lands
farther out though we can see
something waits with open hands
fading into the sea
Track Name: Begotten from Mother Earth
Lightning crashes
shattered sky
sounds of destruction
fading cries
born from the womb
torn from the cord
waiting in judgment
life is abhorred

Silence
darkness
escape
try
begotten
from mother
earth
we die

Tearing through forests of unknown lands
sacrificed all of our life
pursuit of true power born by your hands
surfacing pride with a knife
false masters will beat you (merciless cry)
only your own perseverance (your god)
They'll leave you bleeding (if you should cry)
They'll torture you if you should fail
will you not stand against the suffering
Will you just take what you recieve
Begotten from earth, wind and fire
your purpose lies with the rotting

Take back what belongs to us
this life that is so meaningless
slaves to our own machines
The only life (the color of our dreams)
Forsaken and betrayed
mother now is dying (save)
What we've done can't be reversed
Forlorn, tortured mother earth

I've gone blind to all we see
nothing more is left for me
I cannot understand our ways
living now in darker days
Wish to crawl back underneath
somewhere where the souls are reaped
clinging on to dying rock
have no pride – time has stopped
what I feel is flesh and bone
cold steel now has overgrown
should return from whence I came
nature of life's cruel game

Riddled with cold despair
I ask who left truly cares?
Lost without a name or cause
suffering every little loss
this is nothing permanent
sheltered by out thoughts
walking aimlessly since birth
Begotten by Mother Earth
Track Name: Only the Wind Calls Back
Screaming, silence beckon
agony, lying in wait
there has got to be a life beyond this
answering calls of nature
falling on deaf ears
this world ignores our deepest wounds

winds of change blows past us
we are blind in the dark
this evil that exists
tell us how can we live?

…..Voice of the wind

if only there was a saving grace
some answer torn down from the sky
there may be no hope for us
but, its our duty to try

….. Voice of the wind

only my voice
the voice
voice of the wind

voice of the wind
calls from within
only the wind calls back
just....our own voice
Track Name: Forest of Despair
The rain is hard today
And every time I feel the same
I cannot find the sun
The summer light has gone away

I craved the warmth
The beauty and majesty
If only I knew the one way out

I walked the path
That led me away
Now I can see
There is no way out

So come and claim my soul
A passing year was today
Until you realized
Cold is this Earth with nothing
There will be no faint glimmers
Nothing but pain
In this darkness, my dwelling
I try to escape
Nothing has changed
I need to find a way from this pain

Maybe in another time
When this stone heart of mine
Has eroded with the sand
And the trees call me home again
Maybe in another time
When this stone heart of mine
Has eroded with the sand
I will see the sun rise
Track Name: Pillars
The world won't stop for just one heart beat
the machine has already grown
nothing can stand this test of time
that which the gods have sown
the constructs will stand forever bound
walls painted in blood
the fortress constructed will never crumble
the pillars stand eternal

existence is futile
life is perverse
facing your demons
hellspawn from birth
the pillars erected
cold steel has grown
this is your world
reap what you've sown
faceless are calling
nameless will cry
strong will survive
the weak left to die
pillars erected
new machine made
this is your world
with blood you will pay

forced into this
where can we run?
Isn't this just
the shot of a gun?
Closed doors are binding
nothing to move
pillars surrounding
we cannot lose
taken for granted
worthless waste
just one more pawn in the pack
death may greet us
so unaware
watch as the cities burn to the ground



They have build us up
just to knock us down
nows the time to stand
whose side are we on?

here my words now
we must stand tall
they're perishable
so we shall not bow
They've built a
fortress (but we'll)
never settle for
less than our rights

Pillars, standing tall
they will break and fall
they won't crumble nor bend
we're the sheep, all fenced in

this world they've build
we cannot let die
but it must be changed or forlorn
the constructs erected, the monuments made
the walls that stand will crumble (soon)
the powers, that be overthrown
pillars erected, no turning back
this is our world
what we have wrought
Pillars will crumble
we'll take it back!
