1. Alchemic Web of Deceit (4:15)
(Stevie Boiser)

Oh foolish King of Xerxes, you seek immortality?
The means to your end? Forsaking morality.
The price? The lives of those that you rule.
A worthy sacrifice to pay the toll.

You've taken the bait, a lust for power has sealed your fate.

Scribed throughout the sands, of these tainted lands.
Alchemic sigils, weave my twisted web of deceit.
You've been ensnared, your life now fodder for my flame.
Hands reach forth from beyond the gate, to collect my offering.

(Guitar solo by Sanjay Kumar)

The all seeing eye, it beckons me, into a realm mere mortals dare not see.
I'm called into the void, once more I've seen the truth.
The apex of all space and time.

Finally at long last, I shall abandon this flask.

The land falls silent, as millions are sacrificed.
Granting me fathomless power and eternal life.
The limits of my abilities are unknown.
A living philosopher's stone.

The limits of my abilities are unknown.
A living philosopher's stone.
2. A Suit of My Flesh (5:00)
(Julien "Nutz" Deyres)

Homunculous, what have you done?

(Stevie Boiser)

Brother of mine...
Von Hohenheim!
I have escaped!

(Julien "Nutz" Deyres)

What have you done to me?

(Stevie Boiser)

I've gifted you a body that will last all eternity!

(Julien "Nutz" Deyres)

At what cost? The lives of my countrymen have been lost!
And now you stand before me, draped in what appears to be
A suit of my flesh...
Answer me Homunculous!

(Stevie Boiser)

I was born of your blood for that I've given you a name, awareness, knowledge, and purpose. A new life!
A vessel's what I've needed, so this elaborate scheme I did arrange...
I suppose you could say it's equivalent exchange...

(Stevie Boiser & Julien "Nutz" Deyres)

Blood brothers entwined, 'til the end of time.
The depths of my schemes, will haunt your very dreams.
I'll shed this facade, and become a god.
Blood brothers, entwined 'til the end of time.

(Stevie Boiser)

Can you feel them pulsing within?
The chorus of your comrades, slaves, and your King.
Echoing harmoniously in a wave of infinite screams...

(Guitar solo by Zach Hohn)

(Bass solo by Hugo Karout)

(Guitar solo by Nick Padovani)

(Julien "Nutz" Deyres)

Homunculous,
For this you will breathe your last.
I will return,
For now there is much to learn.

(Stevie Boiser)

Go then Hohenheim...
You're trapped in this web of mine.

(Stevie Boiser & Julien "Nutz" Deyres)

Blood brothers entwined 'til the end of time. The depths of my schemes will haunt your very dreams. I'll shed this facade and become a god. Blood brothers entwined 'til the end of time.
3. Birthing Homunculi Part I: Shrouded (1:32)
4. Birthing Homunculi Part II: Sigil Insidious (5:15)
(Stevie Boiser)

Shrouded in sinister secrecy.
Arcane alchemy births pieces of me.
Willing my children into existence,
A force from which there is no resistance.

Birthing homunculi, embodiment of sin.
Casting out these imperfections, my ultimate scheme begins.

Using my seven deadly children and desires of man.
I string and harness the military of this chaotic land.
Pushing its borders beyond boundaries once perceived.
Alchemic atrocities, these puppets have been deceived.

Wrath, Pride, Gluttony, Lust, Envy, Sloth, and Greed.
Our goal is strangulation.
For each task will be assigned, children
We will reap the souls of this nation.

Populating propaganda, a constant state of war.
Blinded solders commit deeds of which they will abhor.
Orchestrating ominous onslaughts the Shadow King unspoiled.
Our territory stained by scarlet soil.

(Guitar Solo 1 by Nick Padovani)

(Guitar Solo 2 by Christian Muenzner)

Beneath the Surface... Sigil Insidious
Transmutation Circle... Unparalleled

Guiding the flow of this nation the Shadow King..
Homunculous!

And artificial children fit to do his bidding.
Terrifying powers gifted by their crimson core.
Indispensable tools of war.

(Guitar Solo 3 by Christian Muenzner)

Wrath, Pride, Gluttony, Lust, Envy, Sloth, and Greed.
Our goal is strangulation.
For each task will be assigned, children
We will reap the souls of this nation.

Seeking sovereign sacrifices who've been beyond the gate.
Human transmutation has forever changed their fates.
Perilous preparations, the promised day is near.
The birth of a new god all the cosmos will revere!

Limits of my abilities are unknown,
And the depths of my schemes will haunt your very dreams.
Perilous preparations, the promised day is near.
The birth of a new god all the cosmos will revere!

Limits of my abilities are unknown,
And the depths of my schemes will haunt your very dreams.
Perilous preparations, the promised day is near.
The birth of a new god all the cosmos will revere!
