Behold the vision Mental incision Sit on your throne, the poison king Death flying faster Evil Miasma You dug the grave they'll put you in Believe the lies you tell yourself Believe the words you wrote in hell Prophets accuse you Words that confuse you You are not what you think you are Scouring the nation Revelation The truth that kills, the fall so far Believe the lies you tell yourself Believe the words you wrote in hell I'm burned away Cold light of day I'm burned away Cold light of day Sins of the fathers Beget the monsters Hearing the cries, tearing out your eyes Believe the lies you tell yourself Believe the words you wrote in hell The truth you made to lock this room Has come upon you as your doom I'm burned away Cold light of day I'm burned away Cold light of day I'm burned away Cold light of day I'm burned away Cold light of day

Blight 05:03
Out of the sky there came a sign Warning of tomorrow Out of the north the howling cries Strike the chords of sorrow Again the hounds are baying Again the world is greying Again the stars are fading We'll take our chances in the fall Dark days of slaughter The blood, the horror, The light has died and robs us of our eyes We are for the flies Out of the dark the shadow crawls Bleeding through the fires Out of the rain the wordless calls Haunt the blackened spires Again the trees are falling Again the beasts are calling Again the tombs are breaking The dead shall walk before the cross Dark days of slaughter The blood, the horror, The light has died and robs us of our eyes We are for the flies And though we close our blinds we ever live to hear them And though we close our minds we ever live to fear them We're out of time Now stand in line Now take your place As we begin to fade We can but choose Which way to lose We can but try Or we are for the flies

Legion 04:59
So you've found your way here and you ask us questions? You must prove your worth to bear our black standard Many have come in their time, now it falls to you Now you've found your way here I will give you answers It will cost your soul when you pledge allegiance Falling away from the world we will fall with you We will stand We will fight We will die As is right For we are many For we are one For we are many For we are one Here there is no returning to the life before We have our own freedom, we have our own history We're standing clear on the edge of eternity Here you will take our name, you will take our weapons, You will stand in line with us and the tide will break I'll give you reason to die if you fall with me We will stand We will fight We will die As is right For we are many For we are one For we are many For we are one We have come in our legions Stand in allegiance For we are many For we are one For we are many For we are one

Trenches 03:22
Five minutes thirty remaining in time A quieting silence till we form a line We have orders We have a mission Soon we'll be leaving our trenches behind A swamp for a grave at the general's design We are soldiers We are heroes As the whistle blows To our end we go With our blood we pay Our remembrance day Hands are shaking Dawn is breaking A shuddering breath before we charge their line Shells are flying Heroes dying As the whistle blows To our end we go With our blood we pay Our remembrance day Hanging on the wire Shredded by gunfire Falling where we stand Out in no-man’s land

Four Winds 03:33
I ride in black, there is no turning back Words as cold as death are spoken I ride in black, my face set on my path Cold as death the grave is open Four winds blow: Lyrics This life, this path, this hate, this my wrath This life, this path, this fate, this my death Black eyes, black mask, I ride upon my path From the fires of his damnation Despise my task, you live to feel my wrath As the sun dies he is waiting Storm winds blow This life, this path, this hate, this my wrath This life, this path, this fate, this my death I ride in black, my eyes upon the tower Hear the engines of the nether I ride in death, this is your final hour On the road he rides forever Four winds blow This life, this path, this hate, this my wrath This life, this path, this fate, this my death

Scarecrow 06:47
I have been here, always been here The ghost of mourning every dawn I've been watching, ever watching The dust of men has fed my scorn So hollow, so hollow inside Tomorrow, tomorrow has died Dusk and sundown without sleeping Morning sunrise never heating Winter mornings ever freezing Autumn winds forever fleeting High upon my cross, I'm the lord of loss, What there never was never shall there be Look into my face, totem of disgrace Eyes that never were still see Seasons changing, leaves are falling, Now the days are growing dark Your horizons grow more frightening Silhouette, the telling mark All is shadows and dust, ashes and rust Still we find our own reasoning Far winding paths that come to their last In this mortal conditioning Here in this time we live our minds Never fearing the end of things What would you give if you could live In the darkness forevermore? Life passing by under one sky We're still shifting and suffering Letters in stone and earth covered bones Monuments to our lingering Days that go on follow the sun Never straying, nor wandering What you be if you could see That we live in the blink of an eye? I have been here, always been here Shades of men are left behind I've been standing, ever watching And I remain to curse the time Dusk and sundown without sleeping Morning sunrise never heating Winter mornings ever freezing Eyes that never were still see

Exorcism 03:51
This is the night of your suffering The priests have come with the reckoning Stand by the bed, give the blessing, Roman ritual meaning nothing Return to damnation I cast you out into the fire The brimstone, the sulpher Will lash your body forever I can reveal your mortal sin Proud scum, faithless and doubting Her soul is mine, you can never win, This life contest, let us begin Return to damnation I cast you out into the fire The brimstone, the sulphur Will lash your body forevermore Exorcism Exorcism Exorcism Exorcism Return to damnation I cast you out into the fire The brimstone, the sulphur Will lash your body forevermore

Blood Feud 03:43
In the city of corruption we are living in fear In this night mare, born of vengeance, violent death always near Your future now is only your past And every death is never the last Your future now is what we've become A blood feud pact between father's and sons Murder for your family, nothing is left Blood for blood and death for death Generation homicide ripping their way out Damned from birth by the curse on the house An ancient debt of violence will come to claim the stake A lineage of vengeance, murder, hate This feud will last forever as man profanes the god Your laying in your coffin as you sink into the blood Blood, blood, blood, blood, blood, blood, blood, blood feud In the city of our fathers new born sons go to war In the graveyards of our fathers they are sleeping no more Your future now is only your past And every death is never the last Your future now is what we've become A blood feud pact between father's and sons

In this cold room, shadows creeping But in my mind I see In this cold tomb I am freezing And they have come for me In my sickness I am tortured And night by night I wait In my weakness I am desperate The night is now my fate My crimes are endless, there's no forgiveness I can't feel, still I fear There's something with me, please god forgive me Still I fear, I can't feel At their calling I have fallen As I sleep they speak to me Nightmares of a waking dream In nocturnal revery I am saved but still I scream When the sun bleeds to death over the morbid sky And shades creep up the garden path I feel I see them with my waking eyes Through static I can hear the sounds of suffering Long into my sleepless nights I feel I've been here before but I can't recall your face Even when you smile your eyes are dead to me Outside my window there are faces gazing in I can't see them but if I just looked a little longer In my bed my eyes are fixed on the black wall There's something bad in this room, watching me, waiting We are being watched We are being watched And I will now accept my fate To turn away from light And spend all of my days Within eternal night A refuge for my sins A damned, unholy mark This is my resurrection Within The Bleeding Dark
