Track Name: Eternal
A cloud of darkness moving in
Shadows all, remove my skin
Drain my corpse, cut away the flesh
I'm a mere hollow shell burnt down to ash
I always wanted to move mountains Instead I closed the curtains
I guess it must've been the burden That kept me down under
All life in a slumber
It makes me wonder Am I the hunter
Or am I being hunted
Is this the last I will see from hell Farewell they've rang my bell
It's time to leave this rotten world Nothing left to feel the hurt
Forever is a lie
We live alone and that's how we die No second chance, there's no blue pill There ain't anymore blood to spill
Dead end, I'm going nowhere
I'm stuck in my own despair
The hole I dug myself in
Good or bad, the line is thin
Will I find my true self or just give in
Is this the last I will see from hell Farewell they've rang my bell
It's time to leave this rotten world Nothing left to feel the hurt
Stranded deep, I've sunk my ship A last minute one way trip
I was right, life is infernal
Only death is eternal
Track Name: Consume
Hell is home
And home is hell
But we're still doing well Hiding in our empty shell
Underneath of what our eyes can perceive Lies nothing more than what we already see A world in flames, glowing ever so brightly Can you feel it burn to cinder
I've stumbled upon scorched earth My demons may have found me
Resurrect the earth
Let it rise from the ashes Resurrect
Hell is home
And home is hell
But we're still doing well Hiding in our empty shell
We are the scavengers of earth Relentless we take everything Nothing is safe from our evil hands Reckless we take everything
We disroot all of nature’s treasures
From the garden we once thrived up from To the grave in which we'll find our end Your blatant lies won't stand
When all hell comes crashing down again
Hell is home Home is hell
Resurrect Let it rise
Track Name: Souls
Light the fire and start anew
Passing through the valley of defilement The blade in my hand is my only companion Covered in mud it's slowing my pace Wandering deeper inside the swamp Overtaken by poison, vermin and plague
As i search for a glimpse of the sky
The truth remains covered by a lie
Free me from my alter ego Hold my hand and feel the burn Close the gate behind me shut Nothing left for me to chase
Hear the demon inside my soul My decaying body's pride
Cruelty won't leave my side
Ease the pain and make me whole
Even in this reign of misery there's still light to guide the way Dear Astraea cleanse my soul
Lift the grip of darkness on my hollow bones
Ease the pain and make me whole
Take a look, at those forgotten ruins
Inside the frigidness of your unwholesome soul
And make one last attempt to save your brittle mind As you grasp for the foreboding truth that lies within
Track Name: Ephemeral
Your time is now
I wake up every day with regret in my heart All these times that I chose wrong
I don't know where I belong
I barely got some free space
To keep my mind in place
Fear whispers me there's no way to win this race
Life shines every day but you're living in constant darkness
You keep running around but you fail to cherish the moment Desperate, fearful, insecure, your social angst keeps you on edge If you can't stop this fight, you'll slowly perish inside
Your time is fading out
You perish inside
You perish inside
You won’t win this fight
Breathe life, let shine Breathe life, let shine
Your time is now
Track Name: Sinister Sky
I'm not in control
This life is passing me by
I'm not in control
I closed one door and I lost sight
I'm not in control
This life is passing me by
I'm not in control
My world is crumbling from the inside
We all know the first step you ever take Slowly starts your journey into the unknown Every day changing, in constant motion Makes it hard to find shelter.
Yet after a while insecurity begins to darken the sky I always believed to be so flawless
So much that I lost sight
Alas, making my actions feel so uncontrolled
I'm not in control
This life is passing me by
I'm not in control
I closed one door and I lost sight
I'm not in control
This life is passing me by
I'm not in control
My world is crumbling from the inside
After all this time, the only thing I know for sure Is that no matter what choice I make
There's still one promise that I can't break
I can see the light shining from the top of the mountain down on me Down on me
Down on me
Track Name: Foul Waters
I remember the days when we grew up in our hometown I was always there to help you up when you fell down We would laugh and drink into the night
And meet disaster the next day
Now that I need you the most
You're gone up in smoke, nowhere to be found
I've put my trust in you and you've let me down You've let me drown
We used to say we'll go down swinging I got your back brother
Fighting side by side
Till the end of days
With a smile on our face
We used to say we'll go down swinging I got your back brother
Fighting side by side
Till the end of days
But your face has changed You're gone astray
I can still see your face I can still hear you say
In the back of my mind In the back of my mind
You're gone astray
I've put my trust in you and you've let me down You've let me drown
