Track Name: Margin For Terror
Listen can you hear the sound of war
Majestic triumphant
The wolf is at your door

Relentless
Cementing our place
Intent on repenting the time that we waste

Your one fatal error
Ignoring the corpse to be seen
This margin for terror
Farewell to a new dying breed

Imparting a bloody red sea
In league in three in trinity
The wolf has taken his sheep

Relentless in violent extreme
A vulture surveying the truth from the dream

Exploding from pressure
The throne has been seized
This margin for terror
Exalt to a new deadly breed
In league in three in trinity

In time divide us
Division plants the seed
A long awaited hellish mutiny

Familia satanas
Familia satanas

The earth lie over me
The echoes of the stench preceding me
In darkness hallow be
In requiem we sing
For when the hammer falls
The tide will swing
For all maternity....
Track Name: Ten Talons Deep
Wasting away in your kingdom of spoils
Your banner unfurled
(Announcing the loyal)
With venomous treachery released is the snake
Constricting its coils and collapsing our fate

This dream is dying
Your cancer is spreading
(He sees)
Your world is lying
At my feet I denounce your disease

I dismiss your relation
There’s no reason for 1 breath of life
As you belittle creation
Your death my only fight

Through the trenches of glory I ride
We ride!

Across black rivers
Submerged awaiting prey
Evil from us deliver
Ten talons deep
The wound ingrained

This tree of life
You’ve turned to ash
Leaves him decayed
I stand
Unmoved
Unbroken
Consumed
Twenty years [2x]
We stand
Unmoved
He’s broken
Consumed
Twenty years
Track Name: Deathsomnia
Morning light penetrates
This grizzly future, why did I wake?
Blackest white, infiltrate
These years asleep, just hibernate
I refuse today

So cold embalming
Death hand disarming
So I drop, to my knees

There’s no use resisting
Please make it stop
There’s no use existing
I accept, I regret this dissent make it stop!

Deathsomnia, penetrates
Sleep everlasting, time dissipates
I refuse today

So cold embalming
These frigid screams
There’s no use existing
Please make it stop
There’s no use resisting
I accept, I regret this dissent make it stop!

Optimist lies, feed on the weak
Deceived
And suffer, to release
Dream in disguise, faith in retreat
My own dying hand, I relinquish my grip
There’s just loss to gain
Enamored, welcome defeat
Enamored, into defeat
Track Name: On This Day Death
Into the cave
These walls breathe fire
Give life and taketh away
A new beast rising entire

Unleash depraved
Enlarge aspire
At odds an even exchange
Like ivy on graves reaching higher and higher

On this day death
Engraved

No fool awakened from slumber
Uncover the dirt and disdain

On this day death
Engraved

Time insults the mind
What’s left is left behind
I’ve forgiven the future for presenting the past
I’ve forgiven the past for presenting the future
Track Name: Release The Kraken
Agree to disagree, resolute, calm at sea
Prevailing winds will alter course
Shift 3 degrees
Relate to vindicate, camouflage, understate
The monster rears his ugly head
In spite of me

Full speed ahead
All systems overload
Next stop dissent
All systems overthrow

New chapters different books
All you took, erodes in days
This tattered rope holds stronger fast
Through life’s charades
Agree to disagree, resolute, war at sea
This monster rears his ugly head
In spite of me

Full speed ahead
All systems overload
Next stop dissent
All systems overthrow
Full speed ahead
All systems will explode
Bring out your dead
All systems overload

Release the Kraken

Outstretched, with tentacle reach
I plunge fathoms
Sinking deep
Track Name: And You Thought You Knew Pain!
Reverse direction, in all humility, I’ve become extinct
And only now, with grave allegiance
Do I suffer, indifferent, insistent, and prolific?
Thrown forward in time
It’s taken years to compile enough memories to die!

And you thought you knew pain!

Commence distinction
In all things lie a will to fade
Thrust backward in time, forsaken
Any hope worth saving has passed me by

And you thought you knew pain!
What’s put to rest,
Infest, Insane

I will rot, but it's not
Like I wasn’t already achieving decay

Let’s end today
Forever enrage

I am molting, no longer set apart
Flesh and wood, the dirt feels good
Against my heart
Track Name: LTHLTK
The stronger the hate
The longer the wonder

Riding this wave of hatred and anger
Peeling the skin off this cruel dark world

And I’m tired of playing along
And we’re tired of the same old song

Stood up and discounted

Fighting this urge
The pain overtakes me
Rolling the bones off this cruel dark world

And I’m tired of playing along
And we’re tired of the same old song

Stood up and discounted

The stronger the hate
The longer the knife
Instead of death you’ve given breath…to life

And I’m tired of playing along
And we’re tired of the same old song

Stood up and discounted!
Track Name: Dethroned Emperor
See the portal, gate to madness
Locked forever in a veil of shame

Deny extraction - Thirst for disgrace
Watch his break - The emperor's killed
Light of the day - Shadows from beyond
Scaffold of steel - The throne has gone

Dethroned emperor

The foot of the stairs, dimension in might
The king sits, his eyes are glass

Growing of the small - The laughter's fall
Can you deny - Remaining cries?
Descent of the lords - Into the trap
Existence and hate - Unseen gate

Dethroned emperor
