Track Name: Consecration
We are the sword of the lamb
Driven by the vultures
Come to reap the wayward shepherd
For we have lost our way

In their final breaths, their cries of "Mercy!" die in their throats

These divergent suns will set
Upon the towers of the wicked
Wielding our youth as a shield
But in the shadow of death
We will be as one
Our time has come

Witness the dais of mortality
Broken by our vanity
But with this final cleansing,
We will reclaim our unity

The empty chasm is endless my friend,
But with what time is left
The blood of oligarchs will sate our thirst
We will lay these thieves to rest

This unwinding spiral to the end
No kings, no beggars
Only men shall fill these graves

Witness the dais of mortality
Broken by our vanity
But with this final cleansing,
We will reclaim our unity
Track Name: Fortress
Remnants of civilization, nothing but dust
On the winds of genocide, blind vengeance at an end
A morbid purity, the empty slate again
Inscribe the second chapter, the futile human race

I’ll drive the hammer, I’ll sculpt the stone,
To forge this place we’ll call our own
To build a future on regret
To resurrect them from the dead

This hallowed monolith to your prophetic birth
Dishonest genesis built by our father’s will
Obscure the odious, destruction of the self
Bulwark of innocence, shadow the past that they left behind

I’ll drive the hammer, I’ll sculpt the stone,
To forge this place we’ll call our home
To build a future on regret
To resurrect them from the dead
Track Name: Clarion
Brothers and sisters,
Who here has the courage to ask out loud
Why those gone missing among us have faded away?

Mother will answer for these
Broken homes we’ve always known
Have you the heart to see the hallowed past behind us?
Will we ever have control?

We've been silent for too long
Cradles rocking, babies gone
Weeping mothers, widowed lovers

No room for imperfections,
We all know when the night comes
And not for one day longer - we just pass on

Brothers and sisters,
Who here has the courage to ask out loud
Why those in place to protect us can take us away?

Mother will answer for these
Broken hearts we’ve always known
Have you the strength to see the choices placed before us?
Will we ever have control?
Track Name: The Bastion (Beyond Her Grasp)
How bad can the outside be if I live there in my head?
If I stay here any longer, I'd be much better off dead

Slip into the darkness and break away
Escape from this concrete slum before it's too late

Beyond the veil, a city that somehow feels like home
Reveal the history that predates all we've known

Return to the darkness and break back in
This city is a bastion where we can start again

You have gone beyond my grasp to that forsaken place,
But you shall see this secret kept or take it to your grave

Slip into the darkness and break away
Escape from this prison before it's too late
Running through the subterfuge, I know I'm not alone
Just over my shoulder, I can hear the drones...
Track Name: Civil War III: The Orbital Strike
Reaching out into the mouth
To feed the wretched children
To cultivate this life anew
But suffering their little bites
Has worn my patience thin
I'll erase all these mistakes again

Now there are no lines left to cross
This is the point of no return
These sins converging years across
A lesson you will never learn

Poisoning this bounty with words most impure,
They dance in the ashes of their brothers' sins
If freedom is what you desire, I'll deliver you the void
I've come for the guilty with judgment from heaven

For those who know not,
See never what he's done
The story is the same
The end, again, has come

"We saw our darkest hour in the brightness of her blinding wrath - showered us with rays of malice, leaving anguish in her wake. Though we begged for mercy, there was none to give…”
