Track Name: The Eternal Void
i see them come
one, two then many
trudging with void steps
heavy with an age of hatred
the crunch of snow
in the northern chill
it gnaws my bones
and the icy fingers grasp
they have waited endless
nameless, voiceless
the eyes flat, mouths wide
no sound yet deafening
thick, viscous, choking
the living oblivious
eyes not met, unaware
they are coming
we will not get out
Track Name: Mind Killer
it is by will alone I set my mind in motion
lips acquire stains, thoughts gather speed
it is through sapho juice thoughts acquire speed
lips acquire stains, stains become a warning
i must not fear
fear is the mind killer
fear is the little death that brings obliteration
i will face my fear
permit it to pass over me
and when it has gone past
i will turn the inner eye
there is a terrible place no truthsayer sees
a man will come go where they cannot
many have tried the drug, but none have succeeded
they tried and failed, they tried and died
i must not fear
fear is the mind killer
fear is the little death that brings obliteration
i will face my fear
permit it to pass over me
and when it has gone past
i will turn the inner eye
where it has gone
there will be nothing
only i will remain
without change, something sleeps inside us
and seldom awakens
i miss the sea
but we need new experience
allow me to grow
the sleeper must awaken
the sleeper must awaken
it is by will alone I set my mind in motion
lips acquire stains, stains become a warning
i must not fear
fear is the mind killer
fear is the little death that brings obliteration
i will face my fear
permit it to pass over me
and when it has gone past
i will turn the inner eye
Track Name: A Million Deaths
a cold gaze across the sea
a fist held with conviction
i must rule with eye & claw
let us not rail about justice
yueh!
bend like a reed in the wind
the mark, a sign of trust
the willow submits to the wind
and prospers until it is many
yueh!
a million deaths
were not enough
you don’t think i don’t know
what i gained for my life
the mystery of life
is not a problem to solve
but a reality
to experience
yueh!
a million deaths
were not enough
you don’t think i don’t know
what i gained for my life
the tooth!
remember the tooth!
Track Name: Nashwan
flying fists, venom eyes
all in the name of the people
to be the one at one
we must push through
with a violent desire, and a closed fist
to be the brightest star
we must give no quarter
with a steel fury
and the lethal formula
we are messiahs in our sport
raw as we deliver
the click of the revolver, the barrel of the gun
to be the brightest star
we must give no quarter
our fatal justice
rage for the millennium
wielding the sword of Damocles
the powerhouse that we are
nashwan!
corruption and violence force the game underground
unregulated, ungoverned, the game degenerates into a fiasco
Track Name: Entropy
it is all I own
I cling to it like life
this kernel of rage
all consuming all knowing
they say time heals all wounds
i say some too deep to find
the burden of guilt
crushing ever downwards
yet still i walk this road
and i will not share this load
the weight of ages
under eyes seen too much
the pinch behind the eyes
almost nothing, a hair’s breadth
it is all i own
the colour, my soul
bared open on sleeve
a beacon in the dark
how i would pray // for a moment’s peace
behind the veil, behind the glass
behind the veil!
behind the glass!
Track Name: Walk the Earth
the weight is choking
it pulls me on down
time slows to a crawl
the sadness crushing
it pulls me on down
my time here so long
what have we become? what burns so bright cannot burn long
taken by tides
now erase you
the waves now take hold
they pull me in close
the light from above
like in dream
they pull me in close
the waves suffocate
what have we become? crawling over ourselves
what is left to save?
cannot hide ourselves
now erase you
now erase
you
Track Name: Iguanodon
the orange sun rises in the west, it burns my eyes
amidst the mist of misery and apathy, i see his rise
i rage but no one knows
beat fists on bloody walls
submerged to drown out them all, behind my eyes
cannot piece the mess of pieces, a future dies
i howl but no one hears
screaming bloody murder
reptile wanders among us
consuming us mindless
lizard fucker on this earth
in time will crush us
raised hands will not save you
why i hear you cry
why?
Track Name: Snake Wizard
uncoiled evil
rears its head the shadow cast
turning twisting
cross our eyes faithless past
no one can hold the eye
expect to see them die
and watch the ravens fly
blot out the bleeding sky
blistered fists in
coals they burn suffer us all
a fallen aegis
cross the palms embrace the fall
constricted as they burn
the fallen will return
to cast a shadow pall
these walls will save us all
pulling under
turning twisting
hooded demon
needing feeling
no one can hold the eye
expect to see them die
and watch the ravens fly
blot out the bleeding sky
uncoiled evil
rears its head the shadow cast
turning twisting
cross my eyes i cannot last

i cannot last
