Track Name: Refugees
Keys to a lock
Put down to shock
I would give anything
to stay

Befriend Condemn

I belong here too, but I’ll die here alone. Bellowed in hatred.
I belong with you, but I’ve lied through it all. Nothing is sacred.

Be mindful of the pompous
Devolved to a victim of excess
The bearer of this bloodline and crest
This debt is pushed onto me

I belong here too, but I’ll die here alone. Bellowed in hatred.
I belong with you, but I’ve lied through it all. Nothing is sacred.

I belong here too, but I’ll die here alone. (Die here alone) Bellowed in hatred.
I belong with you, but I’ve lied through it all. (Lie through it all) Nothing is sacred.

Please let me in
Track Name: Shellshock
Inside
Appalled
Now I’m
allowed to talk

Eyes had witnessed everything
Inattentive to all meaning

The insight
through the fog
Together
We need to talk

I saw you walkin away
Held up and stopped dead
You got nothing to say

And through the endless blame
You keep on moving
Reduced to wandering machines

Register this
Alkaline taste
Coming apart
At the seams

I saw you walkin away
Held up and stopped dead
You got nothing to say

And through the endless blame
You keep on moving
Reduced to wandering machines

I seen you walkin away
Held up and stopped dead
and got nothing to say

There is no endgame
You keep on moving
I know what all happened there
Thousand yard stare
Wandering machine
Track Name: Night Of The Dragon
On a river of stone
they found me walking alone
all in covered disguise

Raised his hood up and said
“You look like you need a friend”
A painted forehead third eye

Before the tall grey man
unable to comprehend
They’re “taking over”
and I need to be on their side

Now I
Will rise

You followed
The sorrow
And filled it with lies

This Night Of The Dragon is mine

Within no time at all
I had received a phone call
A crying voice had replied


They’ve got a blade to my neck
I think they want you dead
someone cut off the line

Exposing all of their plans
a voice in my head then said “They’re
taking over”
a vengeance that I must provide

Now I
Will rise

You followed
The sorrow
I’m running out of time

This Night Of The Dragon is mine

Dusk has fallen ago
and the river stills flows
with evil magic alight

The ritual had begun
But not known to anyone
Hell had just arrived

Now I
Will rise

You followed
The sorrow
You followed

Now I
Will Rise

You followed
The sorrow
You followed
Track Name: Atom Smasher
We are
The panoptic
The night we sever

In time
Air is weightless
Now is forever

All the years that I have wasted
Seem to now matter most
Formulaic wonder
Now become aglow

See the light
Panoramic sight
The dark matter is splitting

We are
The panoptic
The night we sever

In time
Air is weightless
Now is forever

Thought patterns
Are all but stable
Traversing through astral fields
Spheres of energy
Now begin to appear

See the light
Panoramic sight
The dark matter is splitting

We are
The panoptic
The night we sever

In time
Air is weightless
Now is forever

Pulse waves they beat on in my head
Eye of a needle in this thread
Into a world of indefinite
I am the living infinite
Track Name: Utopia
Glamorous
Ravenous
The betterment of society gone askew

Denied this
Avarice
Opened these eyes to a destitute view

Wherever our weary heads lie, the dream is now overdue, as we look to yeah

Golden Sky
All been led astray, we found a way, and overcame
Fortify
Our new home

Been misled
Word has spread
The pinnacle of our struggle has now come true
Look ahead
We imbed
The symbols of tribe, in seas of the shimmering blue

Endeavor, the stars are aligned, our journey is long overdue, as we look to yeah

Golden Sky
All been led astray, we found a way, and overcame
Fortify
We must remain steadfast
Golden Skies
All been led astray, we found a way, and overcame
Fortify
In this shelter

Golden Sky
All been led astray, we found a way, and overcame
Fortify
We must remain steadfast
Golden Skies
Crossed horizons over grounds on this salted plain
Fortify
We are home
