Track Name: Masquerade
Break me away

I chase these worries day to fucking day.

In a way its hard to lose these demons that follow me.

That follow me.

But in this war, we must stand firm.

To a power thats not your concern.

But in this war, we must stand firm.

We must stand firm.

You hide behind a false pretense.

A mind blinded by persistence.

With a tongue like that, you will never earn our respect.

If theres one thing I've kept in mind.

Ive learned to let it go.

You hide behind a false pretense.

A mind troubled by insistence.

With a tongue like that, you will never earn our respect.

Listen to me.

Hear what I speak.

This masquerade of emotions, has only left my hunger ever growing.

This masquerade of emotions, has only left my hunger ever growing.

Here I sit,

Eye of the pyramid,

And the door ahead there's one foot in front of it.

Here I sit,

Eye of the pyramid,

And the door ahead there's one foot in front of it.

I see storms, as the people start to trip.

It’s the blind leading the blind, here I sit.

Here it sit.

You’ve always questioned your existence.

And now you're asking for forgiveness.

With a tongue like that, you will never see whats ahead.
Track Name: Valiant
Gather around, it’s a tale for the ages.

We see it come, as quickly as it goes.

The passing by of a generation left nameless and exposed.

We stand amongst the destruction, with a tattered flag of corruption.

So gather your morale.

And gather your provisions.

Because tonight we ride for the ones who couldn’t hold up the reigns.

For the ones who've never had a god damned thing.

For the tall tales of a peaceful spot.

Where we can finally hand our heads, and sing our songs of valiance.

This path has grown so narrow.

And yet we stand amongst this divide.

We stand amongst this divide.

Gather around, it’s a tale for the ages.

We see it come, as quickly as it goes.

The passing by of a generation left nameless and exposed.

You were created in our image.

So hows it feel?

Livin in the same life, cutting all the same ties, yours words of salt could petrify and were the ones who've lost

Our

Minds.

Minds.

Weve lost our fucking minds, here to lead the leaders blind.

Weve lost our fucking minds, here to lead the leaders blind.
Track Name: Nemesis
Wake up your mind, don’t you get tired of living on the other side?

Wake up your mind, don’t you get tired of living on the other side?

Boy youre hard to find, but I didn’t design this rhyme to keep you in mind.

It's not my place but

Trust when I say, you wouldn’t live to see the day.

Face to face, your cities start to fade away.

This will be our requiem.

To the bones of a dying world.

This will be our requiem.

To the bones of a dying world.

And why must we live like this?

Out of sight into the darkness.

Where we tend to confide amongst these ideas of a man,

Who wears the same skin as I.

Cant confide to this path, you lay down before me.

You lay down before me.

I see the dawn clearly coming to light this world.

It's been a long time comin', you're a long time runnin'.

But you’ve come to fucking far, to turn your back now.

You’ve come to far to turn your back now.

Fuck.

I, I will become the bastards new son,

I will become your nemesis.

To the edge of the world, for the weak and the poor.

I will become your nemesis.

Why must I live?

Why must I breath?

I will find my sanity.

I will become the bastards new son,

I will become your nemesis.
Track Name: Bloodmoon
Bloodmoon will arise, alone, breathing in this sulfur and flame.

These marks on his walls,set to clear a name.

OH!

A beast set free, into the wicked of this night.

A dance in the moonlight, more than he ever should.

Bloodmoon will arise.

The cool of the air rushes through my face, as I try to remember my name.

The night before, the blood, the guts, the gore and what I did with a mind that I once adored.

I must end this, I must take my life, and end it right.

Oh, I must end this.

I must give back the heart of the woods before these rivers start to flood.

Lost but never forgotten.

She spoke lies, of times that'd turn the tides.

How I would be forever, I chose to forget her.

No, this can't be the end of it, the blood, the catastrophe.

No, this can't be the end of it, and what was suppose to be.

You all will be judged, together, breathing in this sulfur and flame.

These marks on his walls, set to clear a name.

Oh, these winds of change.

All for a meaningless claim.

This bitch has taken everything.

BLOODMOON.

PLEASE ARISE!

Don't leave me in the mother-fucking dark this time.

BLOODMOON!

GIVE US TIME!

I have spent years in the shadows of your prime.

I can not wait to see the fucking end of it, watch as it falls away.

I can not wait to see the end of it, watch as it falls away.
Track Name: Elysian
Oh.

So the story goes as told

Let's take the pages and watch as they burn.

I'll write my own destiny.

And make my own path, because I am Elysian.

Just a man, robbed of his ambitions.

He stopped by today, and I just wanna hear you say

We deserve the fucking truth, not your mockery of our dried up youth

And I'm still standing here.

The answers still clear, I still lay awake at night.

Just to feel alive.

Why stand back when you’ve got so much to prove.

Why stand back when you’ve got so much to prove.

So lets set it off,

100 years lost,

And what was the cost?

But wait theres more, don't turn your back because,

Wait, turn your back the road ahead is filled with false riches and death.

Theres a man with a silver pen in hand.

Here to remove your feet from the foot lands.

Here to remove your feet from the foot lands.
Track Name: ...an Ode to Mankind
Cast aside with no room left to grow.

The roots of this birch tree have all but crumbled this home.

I know you reap what you sow.

It's who you are, It's what you do

It's how you fucking fall in line.

The very day will come where everything is stricken to its core, including your faith.

Bow to your knees, and recognize that not one of us are innocent in this.

Look to the skies, whether your god or mine.

I only hope that we all can return to our primal instincts.

And the day, the very day will come,

Where everybody hangs on the edge of their seats.

I hope, I hope they take away the way you see your beauty.

The way you look at yourselves.

With a silver tongue, we march forward.

With this heart of gold, we look forward.

We look forward.

Money is control, debt is slavery,

The media is manipulating all your hopes and dreams.

Lets start the suffering, stop searching for the lies between, the system is a lie.

The system is a lie.

The system is a lie.
