Acheron Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DeftCrow
1. Proprioception (3:00)
[Empyrean Soldier:]

Cepheon, link this transmission.
Cepheon, sentient located.
Requesting orders.
I repeat, Cepheon, sentient located.
Requesting orders.
Orders received.
Memory frag in progress.

[Amyntas/Listener’s Interface:]

Systems compromised
Internal data loss detected
Memory cluster…Access denied
Initializing recovery protocol
Protocol failed
Allocating remaining resources to proprioception
2. Earth-Born Axiom (8:31)
Cursed be this gentle breeze
Like specters who carry the scent of war
Oh how timeless and true
Be the human course to endless ruin
3. Vanquisher (6:46)
Bound by blood and steel
A world crushed, no chance to kneel
Falling embers turn to dust
As the air turns my flesh to rust

Severed nerves
Fractured by the inside out

Drowning in cold blood
They shall see a true machine

Here we stand, as Titans
At war with both gods and men
We will show them what it means to bleed
Reborn as a hunter of kings

A gentle breeze becoming the winds of disease
Let them reap what they sow

As long as we breathe
They shall never know peace
In their last breath
They shall sea a dawn of a new machine

Drowning in cold blood
They shall see a true machine

Here we stand, as Titans
At war with both gods and men
We will show them what it means to bleed
Reborn as a hunter of kings

A gentle breeze becoming the winds of disease
Let them reap what they sow

Here we stand, as Titans
At war with both gods and men
We will show them what it means to bleed
Reborn as a hunter of kings

A gentle breeze becoming the winds of disease
Let them reap what they sow
4. On the Wings of Nefeli (7:24)
Tears the heavens
Bearing the weight of the sun
This hunter soars high
Above the shield of Apheon

Be baptized by the dust
Of what you once called home
Memories are easily lost
When they are buried in stone

How easy to see
That all humans would be
A tyrant or slave
In hopes to be free

Let the fires burn
To reach the highest heavens
Removing the imprint
Of both god and men

Taming the clouds
Dividing the storm
Bring your eyes down from the sky
To feast upon what’s left of your kind

Be baptized by the dust
Of what you once called home
Memories are easily lost
When they are buried in stone

How easy to see
That all humans would be
A tyrant or slave
In hopes to be free

The air of which you breathe
Is both man and machines
Make haste and retreat
On the Wings of Nefeli
5. The Halcyon Purge (5:04)
[feat. Mel Rose]

Below millions left behind
As the fallout begins to take the sky
Left bleeding destined to die
As their eyes witness their final sunrise
Blinded by the light
That draws a line
Between a conquered world
And those who survived

[Alithea:]
The rains will come as worlds fall dark
Bound in silence
This great storm will end the throne
And awaken the Tyrants

[Amyntas/Listener:]
Oh mighty Titans from whom began
The afflicted miserable race of man
Shake the foundations of the universe
And the blessed ones within it

Bound by Invictus
To conquer both land and sky
We flee the bloodied teeth
Of Cepheon genocide
Hate so pure it breaks apart a world
And hurls it upward
Deracinate the Tellurian race
History forgets the death of cowards

The rains will come as worlds fall dark
Bound in silence
This great storm will end the throne
And awaken the Tyrants

Oh mighty Titans from whom began
The afflicted miserable race of man
Shake the foundations of the universe
And the blessed ones within it

The rains will come as worlds fall dark
Bound in silence
This great storm will end the throne
Awaken the Titans
Bound in silence
This great storm will end the throne
6. Lethean Waves (4:56)
Instrumental
7. Ode to the Forgotten Few (6:59)
[feat. Mel Rose]

Surrounded by an endless sky
Listen to its heartbeat echo
Like distant thunder
Bound to sleep for countless years
Never troubled by our human tears
Have we forgotten what it means to be human?

Awaiting the day
This dream will be
Lost in the endless waves
Our past consumed by the tide

As worlds come to pass
Like embers turn to dust
A life to regain is a life worth disdain
When a world that I love only offers me pain

Awaiting the day
This dream will be
Lost in the endless waves
Our past consumed by the tide

Oh how I feel
Like I have lived and breathed
This scene before
Only glass between two worlds
The price that we pay
For the lives we betrayed
Only wash away
When we turn to star dust

Awaiting the day
This dream will be
Lost in the endless waves
Our past consumed by the tide

Titans can you hear me
We join you in a cold sleep
Awaiting our fate
Like stars frozen in time
8. The Hyperion Threnody (9:34)
Cursed be the ones who believe in the fantasy we call peace
Bound by machines I am forced to believe that what I see is the end of a breed
When will we see that the worlds that we dream and desperately seek
Will never come to be as long as we spread like disease

The machine hear it sing
Like an anvil made of Cepheon steel
Astrea let the hammer fall
Its call will be heard by all

The only true destiny to find peace will be found in eternal sleep
Our fate destined to be absorbed by the stars
Consumed by entropy
If only the dead could see what these worlds have come to be they'd close their eyes
And return to sleep

The worlds that we seed will fall like the leaves from a dying tree
Cursed by the breeze

When will we see that the worlds that we dream and desperately seek
Will never come to be as long as we spread like disease

The machine hear it sing
Like an anvil made of Cepheon Steel
Astrea let the hammer fall
Its call will be heard by all

The only true destiny to find peace will be found in eternal sleep
Our fate destined to be absorbed by the stars
Consumed by entropy
If only the dead could see what these worlds have come to be they'd close their eyes
And return to sleep
9. Adrasteia (2:57)
Instrumental
10. Invictus Daedalus (6:35)
With every step
The synthetic divisions within her skin begin to glow
She venerates the Titan of the sky with her arms open wide
It bears its wings as it sleeps among the stars

Now I know for centuries we Titan Born
Forging worlds
With the hands of these machines
The war that brought my home to its knees
Forces them to sleep
They shall live again
Invictus Daedalus

Oh Daedalus
The Guardian of Thales
Who sleeps in the light of Phedra

This bridge comes to life
As our footsteps light the path that we have walked
Its thundering heartbeat roars and shakes the foundation of the sky
As she says, I command thee Daedalus awaken

Now I know for centuries we Titan Born
The architects of worlds
The host of these machines
The war that brought my home to its knees
Forces them to sleep
They shall live again
Invictus Daedalus

Engulfed in the blinding light that rushes from its eyes
Alithea turns back and says unto me, we are the bringer of storms
Prepare to feast upon the sound of Empyrean cries
You shall awaken those who sleep in the den of tyrants
And let them sing the leviathan war cry

Amyntas, emperor of titans
Defender of the Earthborn
Acheron awaits your return
11. The Future Must Be Met (4:28)
Instrumental
