Track Name: Menhir
And as the dawn left an imprint on the firmament
And at the first sign of madness
Grandeur mistake
It's the birth of a dying age
Praised for its beauty
The entity born
reveled unknowingly
Merging dimensions
Slowly arose
It's the birth of a dying age
The signs were obvious
Yet ignorance shrouded them
In our first utterance
Ignoring all but one
Crestfallen shapes
Universes turn axially in dismay
A turn of silence
Was bestowed upon them all
The signs were obvious
Yet ignorance shrouded them
In our first utterance
Echoes the truth
Prophecies now aligned
Ignoring all but one
Showing the coming
Nothing was seen
Track Name: A Storm Within A Storm
Now this is when
our soul sings to the everlasting source,
un-evolved through ageless bodies
in circles swarm,
until it speaks again,
the rebirth.

Without a sign the ground spins further from us,
the unknown depths,
unexplored into the waves,
the structure of our failure,
superior minds arose.

Now worlds will define worlds as we're born,
now time will define that nothing remains undone.

As we dig
we drown in soil from our
graves abound,
deservingly through our bodies
in empty space
never to speak again,
our final breath.

Now worlds will define worlds as we're born,
now time will define that nothing remains undone.

The borderless reincarnation burned in effigy,
the center of all unchained reversed collisions,
a storm within a storm.
Track Name: Earth Splits Into Fire
Beneath the blinding
folds of madness
with pounds of flesh
consumed by all
the silent world
beckons the gods
the omniverse
begins anew
our future is vexed

The mind wretches
wretches to nothingness
watch the flames as
earth splits into fire

The remains
blood inverted signs of
a dying prophecy
all born of a certain swarm

The silent watchers
unanimous
with steady pace
consuming all
the taste of time
beckons us as
we evolve into a new age

The mind wretches
wretches to nothingness
watch the flames as
earth splits into fire

The remains
blood inverted signs of
a dying prophecy
all born of a certain swarm

freeze one second
buried beneath ocean dust
knowledge lost
in disillusioned skies
Track Name: New Construct
The final creation speaks to its creator
the translation to perfection will commence
without limbs nor eyes rushing into demise
toppled cities dehumanise

Baptized blood
empty mind
sterile world
under waves

Further awar from the answer
tearing at basic foundations
gazing in awe at ourselves
reflecting in soulless mirrors

raging automatons
all blueprints dismissed
new construct begins
reconstruction unleashed

The final creation speaks to its creator
the translation to perfection will commence
gazing in awe at ourselves
reflecting in soulless mirrors

raging automatons
all blueprints dismissed
new construct begins
reconstruction unleashed

devour these gray skies
Machina arise fragile life

empty mind
Knowledge lost under waves
Track Name: The Entire City
Numerous bodies turning away
a dying empty icon of the sun
trapped inside the murmur of others
towers fall, bleeding out the blood of ancient times

Open the gates
strive ahead a new chaos rapture
nothing is true


Hear our last wish - as the entire city sets ablaze
see us, perish - as the entire city sets ablaze

The creators of time have unveiled the answer
without connection in all that is said and done
we are an entity set in stone

Hear our last wish - as the entire city sets ablaze
see us, perish - as the entire city sets ablaze
Track Name: Inward Burst
Short time surge
we see existence burn
swallowed whole, yet still we know our place

unaware of the impending end
swallowed whole where power beats philosophy

in our existence eternal (we crawl into our shells)
compromised by the weight of time (knowledge lost)
and when the cycle is over (we crawl into our shells)
compromised by the weight of time (knowledge lost)

Further from us without grasp of reality
with useless eyes we are shrunk into nothingness
no purposeleft
unknowingly the world departs
ascending storms
yet we still know our place

in our existence eternal (we crawl into our shells)
compromised by the weight of time (knowledge lost)
and when the cycle is over (we crawl into our shells)
compromised by the weight of time (knowledge lost)
