1. Introduction (3:41)
Instrumental
2. Fear the Unknown (4:20)
Maelstrom of fury
Riding on the wind
Make your move and let the games begin

Eyes consumed with avarice
Chaos on their breath
Descending like a bird of prey
That wears a mask of death

The blade of greed cuts oh so deep
Conquer, divide and delete
Wordless longues conspire
Beyond what we see

Fear of the unknown
You can't take away the things
We call our own
Make your presence known
You can't cast away this fragile heart
Of stone alone

Poisoned and infected
Continuing down the days
Savage envy in their soulless gaze

Towers of creation
Pulverized with rage
Arena of the malcontents
Now set their final stage

A merciless, vile machine
Leviathan - killer of dreams
Malicious intentions
Such vicious inventions unseen
3. Black (6:19)
This is the dawning of a new inception
The generating of a warped perfection
The paradigm is shining - no exception
Truth is a lie - a spit in the eye

The scope of what is real now fast eroding
Cause and effect - a fairytale imploding
A clap of thunder
And the storm's approaching
Come in from the rain

Pulling the strings - smashing our wings
Striking us down
Now there's no turning back
This venomous sting - end of all things
Burns in the night
And shifts the palest grey to endless black

Paranoia's like a burning fuse
Yet it's the only tool we want to use
A revocation of the right to choose
The game of a snake with so much at stake

Clutch your weapons out of desperation
Lead the numbered to extermination
You're one step closer to annihilation
Addicted to the pain

Cast the first stone and smite the weak
It's all too easy now to make them break
Raging bullets tear through flesh
A bloody battlefield
And one by one they learn
The price now paid for every past mistake

Pulling the strings - smashing our wings
Striking us down
Now there's no turning back
This venomous sting - end of all things
Burns in the night
And shifts the palest grey to endless black

There is no escape from inside this hell
If you want to live to see another day
Then heed my words
Palest grey to endless black
4. F*cking Robots (4:29)
Dark, cold skies
Voices calling "don't be afraid"
Here we rise
Only looming shadows remain

Dark, cold skies
Voices calling "don't be afraid"
Here we rise
Only looming shadows remain

Curse the sun
Voices calling "don't be afraid"
Time has come
Vengeance pulsing through my veins
5. Djinn (7:29)
Can you see the light from Heaven or Hell?
The majority ain't always right

'Round and 'round it goes
And pray for the power
To kill all of those who oppose

Wishes come in three - choose carefully
Right or wrong - make the call
Different points of view - choose one, not two
Here we stand - here we fall

Don't pretend to know
Just 'cause it is written in stone.
It doesn't make it so

March with spite - unite
A vengeful machine exploiting
Some God-given right

Now paired side by side -
Deadly worlds collide
All the same - friend or foe
Kill to your last breath -
A dance of death
Find the strength - let it go

One last wish remains - Cast off these chains
Take a breath - take control
Just embrace your hate - Evil incarnate
Free your mind - free your soul
6. Believe (8:22)
I stand alone
Looking down into the boundless
Deep abyss of night
Mystified

I'm on the edge
Waiting for the hidden dark
To come into the light
Yet the years go by

I never claimed to be your hero
I never claimed to be your fool, oh no
Give it thought and take account
Don't count the days - just make them count
Forgive, for I know not what I do

Believe - do or die
Shed your broken wings and burn the sky
A dream on the rise
Don't ever let them break you down inside

Never finish what you started
Never keep promise that you an't unmake
In failing to plan, you plan to fail
A distant ship without a sail
Forever lost and forever cursed by fate

And I will stand no without compromise?
Or will I fall - falling prey to your lies
Are my demons angels in disguise?
Every saint has a past
Every sinner's future cast absolute
Believe - do or die
Shed your broken wings and burn the sky
A dream on the rise
Don't ever let them break you down inside
7. Differences (4:32)
Decimate the iron gates
That separate mankind
Curse the others for their views
So strong, yet weak in mind

Words are like a blade
Cutting deep both ways
Silence shall betray

Thought I was enlightened
By the masses' wicked lie
Good intentions - fatal ground
Glory nowhere to be found

We aren't so unlike
Trying to survive
A Darwinistic life - oh no
You can't just let it go

Differences in opinion
Distances separate us all
Differences lie beneath what we can see
So close, yet so far

Differences in opinion
Distances separate us all
Differences lie beneath what we can see
So close, yet so far
8. War Machine (3:09)
Instrumental
9. Oblivion (5:06)
We listen in one late October eye
The locket swings before my eyes
Moth to a flame intoxicatingly
It lures me in, yet can't say why

Are we just so naïve?
This tangled web we weave
Misleading - far-reaching
On this night - into oblivion

My blood runs cold
Now paralyzed with fear
They storm the gates - my enemy
It always seems so dark this time of year
Illusion veils reality

Are we just so naïve?
This tangled web we weave
Earth shaking - heart racing
On this night - into oblivion

The faces on the wall
Their shadows standing tall
And too afraid to ask
"What's underneath the mask?"
Into oblivion...
10. Constellations (5:34)
Close my eyes
A distant plea escapes into the night
Encased in beams of light

Beyond the door
An endless void, uncertainty in view
Pick up the pieces - start anew

So lost - can't let go
So desperate to know
Guided by the winds of fate
To know who we are
Turn my gaze upon the stars
The land of time reveal to me
The answers yet unseen to me

So lost - can't let go
So desperate to know
Guided by the winds of fate
To know who we are
Turn my gaze upon the stars
The hands of time have been revealed to me
