Track Name: The Awakening
And so it begins
From a resting place of memories
Lost so long ago
The faint echoes of life
Resounding from deep within the flow of time
From what did these sands of fate begin to fall
Forcing us to awaken
Unveiling our eyes

And for this moment
We stand, overwhelmed, beneath the sky
Staring into salvation

Entwined in this vow
This attainment of reason
A call to the life that's sleeping in our blood
We'll drink of this faith
Until it drowns our disbelief

Purpose has chosen me
For once I can breathe
And feed the shred of hope
Buried deep within my lust
Beneath the scars
Beneath the shell of my content

Entwined in this vow
This attainment of reason
A call to the life that's sleeping in our blood
We'll drink of this faith
Until it drowns our disbelief

Awakened
In this rite of passage
Culling the thirst of our flesh
With promise
Seemingly written in the sky
And for this moment
We drown in this faith
Track Name: The Grasp of Ruin
Acceptance
This cunning dagger
Dripping with illusive doom
Preying on the weak, myopic minds
Clouding their reason
This treacherous contractor
Assuring the skin-deep convictions
With justification
An escape from the onerous course

Now go ahead
Fulfill the tragedy in disbelief
And rest in the grasp of ruin
Coward! Faithless!
Betrayer!
You errant fool!

Breathe in relief
And choke on the ashes
Of countless works undone
This sanctuary came with destruction
Know this forever
Blood is on your hands

This ravenous vulture
Aroused by the blood of the hopeless
With blackened, starving eyes
It waits for your dreams to die
Will you give in?
Have you ever, for even a moment
Reasoned with your fear?
No one is innocent

Coward! Faithless!
Betrayer!
You errant fool!

Breathe in relief
And choke on the ashes
Of countless works undone
This sanctuary came with destruction
Know this forever
No one is innocent
Blood is on your hands
Track Name: Descent Into Chaos
Sentiment has proven its worthlessness
In this discordant existence
And now my anima has been sealed away
Cold, mechanical and ruthless
I assume a new path with the same destination
Destroying everything that stands in my way

Through vexing resolve
I defy the beliefs of my truest self
I've become heartless
As there is nothing left to bleed
...I am so far away from my truest self...

I am an omen
I am a spear with and ashen wake
My course is doomed
For I have become self sustaining

Through vexing resolve
Into the fires of chaos
I begin my descent
