Available Lyrics

The Black Age

Cries dismembered, figures are lost
Time weeps as a martyr upon a cross
Spectral tidings, chaotic reverie unveils
As comprehension is weathered and washed
Ashore

And as the old gods hide innate
Seeking refuge against the spate
Saviours lost, curdled bones devoured
Our great advent an end to a hopeful
Lie

 

Through planes beyond and light unseen
Thirst of fire rent new skies beneath
Impartial judgement, boundaries abandon
Minds detach, ouroboros detangle
Misleading truth, induced lunacy
Poisoned senses and a maggot rotted psyche
Ambitions bent in pavlovian construction
Sacred chaos stretches through your
Mind

 

Breathe the bones of my descent
Feel the needles of my intent
Ever loving Fire
Cast new light on old design
Creator of new divine
The black age

 

Cower, shiver in fear
Tears of ashen humility
Stories told from eons past
Echo
Confident days of yesteryear
Historic footnotes of futility
Naught but A silent breath between
Words

And as the light fades from your eyes
A realisation takes place of pride
In hopeful hunger you beg forgiveness
You coward

 

Cur!
Vanity!
Coward!
Noose tied by your hand
Conceited!
Insanity!
Coward!
Blade sharpened by your hand

 

Breathe the bones of my descent
Feel the needles of my intent
Silent witness to my empire
Cast into the boundless fire
Cast new light on old design
Creator of new divine
Ink spilled across the page

 

As the cries of worship are abandoned
And the prayers to gods go unanswered
Forsaken lives seeking resolution
Here lies the bones
There is no answer, there is no comprehension
Silken time gives way to new dimensions
Discarding shackles of passionate disunity
Embrace the singularity

 

Breathe the bones of my descent
Feel the needles of my intent
Ever loving Fire
Cast new light on old design
Creator of new divine
The black age

Argil

From mud and bone
From whip and stone
Moulded, pursuaded
Bought and sold

From water and grain
From threat and pain
Broken, rebuilt
Master and slave

 

Sculpt me
Transform me
Clay shaper
Break me
Bleed me
Plied in your grey hands

 

Through hope and cheer
Through dread and fear
Governed, capricious
Taught and trained

Through diminished expectations
Under crumbling foundations
Saviour and captor
Bound and free

 

Sculpt me
Transform me
Clay shaper
Break me
Bleed me
Plied in your grey hands

 

To wealth and land
To blindness in man
Innocence imprisoned
Corruption revered
To towers of stone
To mountains of bone
Leeching the blood
and filling your grail

 

In mud and bone
Redemption, consecration
In subservient fiction
Hope, addiction
In chaos and fear of all disaster
Bringing light to serve as your master

 

Sculpt me
Transform me
Clay shaper
Break me
Bleed me
Plied in your grey hands

Divine

In magnitudes
So many platitudes
Patting backs and rubbing shoulders
Between the plaster cracks
Frayed and empty
On the heap of forgotten time

 

A tiny tract
A bloody scar
Impart a purpose in the ether
Self-referential
Exaltation
A joke lost on the crowd

 

White knuckle
Downward spiral
Just close your eyes
And smile
Swallowed
In the body of a monster
There was never a way
to stop this ride

Barbaric lunacy
Rebranded unity
Our loss
Our gain
Reinterpretation
Justification
Wounds fall on deaf ears

 

Stoke the engine
That’s what we’re told
But don’t dare ask
To where we go

The fuel is here
Don’t look too close
This is a furnace
Full of burnt hope

Stoke the engine
The aim is clear
Getting there
Not staying here

Dont draw the windows
You’ll be surprised
We’re not moving
Just passing time

 

This enterprise
Overwrought demise
Time sold at half the price
Pointless meandering
Fragile pandering
Drained a lake to build a well

 

A tiny tract
A bloody scar
Impart a purpose in the ether
Self-referential
Exaltation
A joke lost on the crowd

 

Divine
Our lives
Divine
We’re blind
Divine
Or we’re forsaken
Divine
Divine

 

White knuckle
Downward spiral
Just close your eyes
And smile
Swallowed
In the body of a monster
There’s no way
To stop this ride
Barbaric lunacy
Rebranded unity
Our loss
Our gain
Reinterpretation
Justification
Wounds fall on deaf ears

Hunger

Door is open
Locks undone
Minds unfastened
One by one
The table is set
For thieves and fools
No invitations
There is no need
Taking their places
Taking their part

 

Blood dry
Black sky
Hallucinations of salvation denied
Hungry eye of the vulture
Mesmerized
Pallid acts
And lavish scraps
Dens of haunting decay
All of your demons
Come home to roost

 

Meat is chewed
Bones sucked dry
Lips are licked
Gratified
Detached and abstracted
Actions remiss
A gullible victim
Apathy’s shame
An innocent villain
Lunacy’s aim

 

Curses of duty,
Denied
Benighted in arms,
Abide
Fervently crawling
Through their own shit
Extolling the virtues
Of their
Fever pitch
Bandage of promise
Covers their eyes
Groping towards
Life
Fervently crawling
Through their own shit
Extolling the virtues
Of their
Fever pitch

 

Blood dry
Black sky
Hallucinations of salvation denied
Hungry eye of the vulture
Mesmerized
Pallid acts
And lavish scraps
Dens of haunting decay
All of your demons
Come home to roost

 

Shallow paths and
Wicked laughs
And this is only the start of the ending
Follow the leader
Follow the light
A constellation
Of devastation
Is all that’s left of your world
As all of your demons
Come home to roost
