Track Name: Rise Lazarus Rise
There’s a carrion curse forever haunting our souls
Until the very day we’re lowered in a hole
At stygian shores we are doomed to run aground
Waiting in fear as the divine spark is snuffed out.

No longer will you wander aimless through the afterlife
With the caress of the casket holding you tight
Were destined for worms when our lives conclude
Last rites be damned, death’s the beginning renewed

Rise Lazarus Rise
Rise From The Grave
Dispel The Sleep
Inside Your Veins

Rise Lazarus Rise
Rise From The Tomb
Regain your breath
Forever Exhumed

Death Is Just The Beginning
Defy Fate, Reanimate
Death Is Just The Beginning
Defy Fate, Reanimate
The Epitaph Wiped Clean
The Tombstone Ground Up
Death Is Just The Beginning
Defy Fate, Re-animate
No need for Eulogies
Hymns never sung

Mortuary science will be forever be eclipsed
Funeral directors deprived of their scripts
Denounce the arcane implements of the past
Now that lifeless actors are no longer cast

The final curtain call fills our body with dread
It’s a shame to expire when we met our end.
Cease your offerings for the unfortunate dead
Silence your prayers I’ll give them new life instead

Rise Lazarus Rise
Rise From The Grave
Dispel The Sleep
Inside Your Veins

Rise Lazarus Rise
Rise From The Tomb
Regain your breath
Forever Exhumed

Death Is Just The Beginning
Defy Fate, Reanimate
Death Is Just The Beginning
Defy Fate, Reanimate
The Epitaph Wiped Clean
The Tombstone Ground Up
Death Is Just The Beginning
Defy Fate, Re-animate
No need for Eulogies
Hymns never sung

Death Is Just The Beginning
Defy Fate, Reanimate
Death Is Just The Beginning
Defy Fate, Reanimate
The Epitaph Wiped Clean
The Tombstone Ground Up
Death Is Just The Beginning
Defy Fate, Re-animate

Mortuary science will be forever be eclipsed
Funeral directors deprived of their scripts
Denounce the arcane implements of the past
Now that lifeless actors are no longer cast
Track Name: From The Dust Returned A Titan
And so it begins
And so it begins
From within
The depths of the dying earth
It has given birth
To a terrible thing that has broke free from it’s cage

Night is
Night is
Falling fast

Time is
Time is
Here at last

The leviathan
The leviathan
Has come again
and an army of agony
it will surely bring
The spell is upon us and has us tightly in its grip

Night is
Night is
Falling fast

Time is
Time is
Here at last

From the dust returned a titan
From the dust returned a titan

Ancient name whispered in the darkness
Lost words spoke from chattering teeth
Bloody runes forbode the arrival
Of the beast that no longer sleeps

This is the end of everything we know my darling
This is simply the end
Such safety finds us
Trembling lambs environed by wolves

Heaven is shuttering
Heaven is shuttering
Hope is lost
And soon there will be a flood
Of angels weeping blood
Grim retribution for our many unnumbered crimes

Night is
Night is
Falling fast

Time is
Time is
Here at last

Hell is Assembling
Hell is Assembling
Humanity
Has reached its bitter end
No time to make amends
Up from the pits crawl the unnamable faceless ones.

Night is
Night is
Falling fast

Time is
Time is
Here at last

From the dust returned a titan
From the dust returned a titan

Ancient name whispered in the darkness
Lost words spoke from chattering teeth
Bloody runes forbode the arrival
Of the beast that no longer sleeps

This is the end of everything we know my darling
This is simply the end
Such safety finds us
Trembling lambs environed by wolves

Well, it is far too late to change our ways
Now that the curtain has been raised
Events we’ve witness can never be unseen

We walk alone
To atone
Into the unknown

We walk alone
To atone
Into the unknown

All that will be left is scattered stones
Of forgotten cities long gone
The things we’ve witness can never be undone

We walk alone
To atone
Into the unknown

We walk alone
To atone
Into the unknown
Track Name: Worlds In-Between
The skeletons in my closet
And the ghosts of my past
Are aligning against me
And approaching fast

Drowning in black seas
Of infinity
Encircled by monsters
Lurking just beneath

The scuttering in the shadows
And the chill up my spine
Are a disturbing warning
Of my borrowed time

Secrets and ciphers
have me by the throat
I do not think that I can
Remain afloat

I have seen things
That you have only dreamed
But maybe they are nightmares
Of worlds in-between

Here there be monsters
And beasts unknown
And they’re never, ever, ever
Gonna leave me alone

I have seen things
That you have only dreamed
But maybe they are nightmares
Of worlds in-between

Here there be monsters
And beasts unknown
And they’re never, ever, ever
Gonna leave me alone

I don’t think that I can stop it
If I could I don’t know how
I don’t think that I can stop it
It is much too late now

I have seen things
That you have only dreamed
But maybe they are nightmares
Of worlds in-between

Here there be monsters
And beasts unknown
And they’re never, ever, ever
Gonna leave me alone

The gibbering of these creatures
With their shrieks and their cries
In their death and their blood
I will be baptized

That is not dead
which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons
Death may die.

The clamoring in the darkness
And the stench in the air
Now what unholy outcome
Have I engineered

Victorian fictions
Are thrown to the wind
Now I must take up arms
And fight for my sins

I have seen things
That you have only dreamed
But maybe they are nightmares
Of worlds in-between

Here there be monsters
And beasts unknown
And they’re never, ever, ever
Gonna leave me alone

I have seen things
That you have only dreamed
But maybe they are nightmares
Of worlds in-between

Here there be monsters
And beasts unknown
And they’re never, ever, ever
Gonna leave me alone

I don’t think that I can stop it
If I could I don’t know how
I don’t think that I can stop it
It is much too late now

Worlds in-between
Worlds in-between
Worlds in-between
Worlds in-between

I wish these were nightmares
But they are far too real

I wish these were figments
Of a sickness not yet reveal

Worlds in-between
Worlds in-between

I have seen things
That you have only dreamed
But maybe they are nightmares
Of worlds in-between

Here there be monsters
And beasts unknown
And they’re never, ever, ever
Gonna leave me alone

I don’t think that I can stop it
If I could I don’t know how
I don’t think that I can stop it
It is much too late now

I have seen things
That you have only dreamed
But maybe they are nightmares
Of worlds in-between

Here there be monsters
And beasts unknown
And they’re never, ever, ever
Gonna leave me alone
Track Name: Dead Air
DEAD AIR
The cities are graveyards
The buildings are crumbling
The streets are deserted
The machines are rusting
They’re purpose for living
They’re forgotten makers
Have ceased to exist

The roads have grown stagnant
The lights have all died out
The death of a nation
The end of an era
The people are fading
Their bones turn to dust
And return to the ground

Madness and misery
Are my dark history
I replay those scenes
Over and over and over and over again

Turned on the radio
It’s no use there’s no one left
A search for life now
Within the dead air
Turned on the radio
It’s no use there’s no one left
A search for life now
Within the dead air

This earth has grown quiet
The memories are dying
The days lose their meaning
The stillness is frightening
There soon will come soft rains
This world will find solace
Now that it’s been cleansed

Madness and misery
Are my dark history
I replay those scenes
Over and over and over and over again

Turned on the radio
It’s no use there’s no one left
A search for life now
Within the dead air
Turned on the radio
It’s no use there’s no one left
A search for life now
Within the dead air
