Track Name: Another Sky
ANOTHER SKY


UPON FIRST DISCOVERY OF THE PLACE OF DESERTION
NOTHINGNESS WOULD SEEM PERPETUAL
BUT SOMETHING HAS GROWN
SOMETHING OF PERPLEXITY
SOMETHING IN THE UNKNOWN
SOMETHING RISING FROM BELOW
AND POINTING TOWARD THE SKIES

DESPERATION WILL LEAD TO EXPLORATION
AND SOON TO OBLIVION
SHROUDING THE WARNINGS
SCREAMING THAT NOTHING CAN PREPARE THE MIND
FOR WHAT IT MAY FIND
IN THE EVENT THAT IT SHOULD SURVIVE

THE CRIES FROM BELOW
SWALLOWED WHOLE
MAY ONLY BE FOUND
FROM BENEATH THE GROUND

SO IT IS TOLD...
THE SHADOWS OF LIFE
SWALLOWED BY TIME
STILL RISE FROM THE SOIL
AND GROW TOWARD THE STARS
THE CRIES FROM BELOW
OF LONG AGO
MAY ONLY BE KNOWN
WITHIN THE STONE
THE CRIES FROM BELOW
SWALLOWED WHOLE
MAY ONLY BE FOUND
BELOW GROUND

MUTATION
STRANGE PROGRESSION
EVOLUTION OF A NEW EXTREMITY

WANDERING WITHIN THE VOID
DRIFTING BY THE GLOWING WIND
ECHOES OF ANOTHER KIND HAVE SURVIVED
AND HOPE THAT SOMETHING ELSE IS STILL ALIVE

SURVIVAL
REVIVAL
ARRIVAL IS DIRE

ALL THAT REMAINS IN THE SAND
SCATTERED ACROSS BARREN LAND
RELICS OF LIFE
THE MEMORIES OF THE END
WEATHERED BY THE AGES OF THUNDER
GROWING UNDER
COMPELLED BY WHAT IS LEFT OF THEIR ESSENCE
AND LONGING FOR MORE

SHADOWS OF LIFE
SWALLOWED BY TIME
RISE FROM THE SOIL
AND DWELL UNDER ANOTHER SKY
Track Name: Fire-Bellied
FIRE-BELLIED


THE FACES SURROUND ALL THAT IS KNOWN
AND STARE THROUGH ONE ANOTHER
SOMETHING IS LOST
OR WAS NEVER THERE
IN EVERY CLOUDED DIRECTION
ONLY UNCERTAINTY LIES AHEAD

SO MANY OF THIS KIND
INVARIABLY REAPPEAR
ALL REARED BY OBSTINACY
ENTWINED IN ABSOLUTE FEAR
THRUST INTO EXISTENCE
AND MISGUIDED BY FLYING FIRE
EXTRACTED FROM A SIMPLE MOLD
AND TOLD WHAT TO DESIRE

FLOODED BY SICKNESS
WE ARE CURSED
GUIDED BY WEAKNESS
WE ARE LOST

SO MANY WILL FALL BEHIND
SURRENDER TO WHAT UNFOLDS
AND FAIL TO REMEMBER
THOSE FIGHTING FOR THE UNKNOWN
AND WHEN ILLUSION FADES
IT WILL BE TOO LATE TO RESCUE OURSELVES
WITH THE FIRE OF REALITY LIGHTING UP THE SKY

FLOODED BY SICKNESS
WE ARE CURSED
GUIDED BY WEAKNESS
WE ARE LOST

SO OUR TIME
IS SWIFTLY RUNNING LOW
TO FILL THIS EMPTY HOLE
IN OUR LIVES
WE STRIP ALL THAT WE KNOW
IN SEARCH OF SOMETHING MORE

SHOULD WE FALL
THE END WILL COME TO ALL
BUT PAIN IS NOT THE WORLD AWAITING YOU
WARMTH WILL SLIDE
SOFTLY OVER THE EYES
AND ALL SHALL FADE WAY INTO THE BLUE
Track Name: Outside The Skin
OUTSIDE THE SKIN


EMERGING BEFORE
ANOTHER KIND OF DAWN
ONE FORGOTTEN BY TIME
YET STILL INSIDE OF ALL KIND

INTEGRATION
AMIDST AN EMPTY SHELL OF A WORLD
IN THE PRESENCE OF AN UNKNOWN BEING
THAT SOMEHOW IS SO FAMILIAR TO ME

I KNOW THIS MORE THAN MYSELF

WE COALESCE INSIDE
A STATE OF BEING THAT CAME BEFORE EVERYTHING
BEFORE MEMORY
BEFORE PAIN
AND YET ALL THOUGHT IS STILL RETAINED
WHERE NO PLACE SURROUNDS THE BODY
AND WITH NO FRAGILE VITALITY WITHIN
WITH NO NEED TO BE ANYTHING
OUTSIDE OF THE SKIN
Track Name: Breach
BREACH


STOLEN AWAY
BEFORE MY EYES CAN ABSORB IT
THE GROUND DISAPPEARS
THE FALL HAS BEGUN

YOU CANNOT STOP
THE RINGING BENEATH YOUR HIDE
YOU CANNOT RUN
FROM AN ENDLESSLY SCREAMING MIND

THE MEMBRANE HAS RUPTURED
SEEPING THICKENING AGONY

THE MIND IS ROARING LOUD
WITH WHAT NO ONE ELSE CAN HEAR
AND IT ALL COMES POURING OUT
ALL IS WHAT YOU FEAR
THE MIND IS WHIRLING ROUND
WITH WHAT NO ONE CAN REPEL
AND IT ALL COMES SPILLING OUT
UNTIL NOTHING CAN BE FELT
NOTHING CAN BE FELT

WHERE IS MY CONTROL?
Track Name: Totality
TOTALITY


CRAWLING FROM THE CHOKING GROUND
SENTIENCE TRAPPED IN STONE RISES

GROWN WITHIN THE GROUND WE STAND
BLINDLY FEEDING OFF THE LAND
WE ARE ROOTED DEEP WITHIN A NEW REALITY
BURNING LIGHT IS QUICK TO FADE
FOR OUR WORLD HAS BEEN UNMADE
THERE IS NOWHERE LEFT TO GROW
OUTSIDE OF OUR DREAMS

WRITHING AGAINST A NAMELESS FORCE
SINKING FURTHER AWAY FROM LIGHT

THE SHAPES OF OUR WORLDS HAVE CHANGED
FAR BEYOND OUR CONTROL

OUR PURPOSE
OUR SUBSTANCE
OUR EXISTENCE
HAS BEEN TAKEN FROM US

GROWN WITHIN THE GROUND WE STAND
IN A LONG DEFEATED LAND
WE ARE ROOTED DEEP WITHIN A VILE CALAMITY
BURNING LIGHT HAS GONE AWAY
OUR BODIES HAVE BEEN BETRAYED
THERE IS NOTHING LEFT TO KNOW
OUTSIDE OF OUR PRISONOUS SLUMBER
Track Name: Odium
ODIUM


I FEEL THE ODIUM THAT SURROUNDS ME
I AM THE ENEMY OF ALL
I MAKE THE WORD SPIN ALL AROUND YOU
JUST BY WHAT SLIDES OFF MY TONGUE

I AM THE ONLY ONE THAT SURROUNDS YOU
I'VE TAKEN EVERYTHING AND MORE
I AM THE OCEAN THAT WILL DROWN YOU
I AM THE STORM
I AM CORRUPTION AT IT'S CORE

THE TIME HAS COME TO SHED MY SKIN
MY TRUE COLORS ARE SINKING IN
INSECT IN MY COCOON
YOU'VE YET TO KNOW THE MEANING OF DOOM
AS I EXPEL MY DISGUISE
FUTILITY SPILLS FROM YOUR EYES

COMPASSION IS A VIRUS
AND I AM THE CURE
I AM DESIGNED TO CONSUME YOUR MIND
AND ASSUME YOUR BODY AS MINE

I WAS FORMED LIKE NO OTHER
INFECTED BY NO CONSCIENCE
DEVOID OF ALL MERCY
AND BORN OF NO MOTHER
Track Name: Lysis
LYSIS


STARING IN THE FACE OF ANIMOSITY
DISARRAY BEFALLING
HOW MUCH CAN ONE GIVE BEFORE
DISAPPEARING ALTOGETHER?
A STINGING URGENCY TO ERUPT
IS GROWING WILDLY

TEARING ME FROM INSTINCT
IS THE GRASP OF THE NEED TO EVADE
LEST I AM FOREVER TO BECOME
ONE WITH THIS REFLECTION
IT IS CLEAR THAT I'VE BEEN FEEDING
FROM THIS POISON GLAND FOR FAR TOO LONG

IMAGES OF THE PAST ARE BLEEDING OVER ME
THEY WILL NOT LET ME FORGET
THE WRETCHED HISTORY OF MY CREATION

AND SO IT HAPPENS
ONCE AGAIN I AM SINKING HEAVILY
BACK TO THE PLACE FROM WHENCE I CAME
THERE IS NO QUESTION
THIS IS NEVER-ENDING
THIS IS PART OF ME
I’LL NEVER BE RID OF IT
NEVER BE RID OF IT

HOW MUCH OF ONE CAN BE GIVEN
BEFORE ALL THAT THEY ARE DISAPPEARS?
Track Name: The Last Resistance
THE LAST RESISTANCE


LONG IT HAS BEEN FORGOTTEN
WHILE DEEPLY IMMERSED IN RUIN
THAT THERE STILL LIES A REASON
THAT THERE IS STILL SO MUCH TO BELIEVE IN

FOR ALWAYS I'VE TRIED TO TURN AWAY
FROM THE ONLY PLACE I'VE KNOWN
NOW I CAN SEE THERE IS SOMEWHERE I CAN BELONG
SOMEWHERE THAT WILL NOT EVER FEEL WRONG

BENEATH THIS SKY
IS WHERE WE SHALL REMAIN
FROM WHERE WE HAVE THRIVED
IS WHERE WE SHALL DECAY

I HAVE TAKEN ALL I AM NOT TO RUN AWAY
SOMEWHERE INSIDE I'VE SEEN THIS ALL BEFORE
I DON'T KNOW IF ANY OF THIS IS WORTH SAVING
SOMEHOW I KNOW I JUST HAVE TO TRY

OUR VIGOR WAS UNAVAILING
BUT THIS WILL NOT BE WHAT DRIVES US AWAY
NOT AS LONG AS WE CAN WITNESS
A SIGN OF HOPE FLICKERING IN THE DARK
I KNOW THERE IS SOMETHING LEFT
WORTH DYING FOR

AWAKEN, RAGE, AND DIE
AS NOTHING MORE THAN WHAT WE ARE
TAKE THE LAND AND SKY
NOTHING CAN TAKE US
NO ONE WILL TRY
AWAKEN, RAGE, AND DIE
WITH NOTHING MORE THAN WHAT WE LOVE
TAKE THE LAND AND SKY
NOTHING CAN TAKE US
NOTHING CAN TAKE US
NO ONE WILL TAKE US
Track Name: Sunderance
SUNDERANCE


TIME HAS GONE WITHOUT US
NOTHING IS THE SAME
ONLY EVER FLEETING MEMORIES REMAIN

ALL IS FAR BEHIND US
AND SO WE LOOK BACK
TO A TIME WHEN WE ARE NOT ALONE
