1. We Were the Keepers (3:48)
From scum of the earth
Feeding decayed minds
Rising from flames
What takes our pain

As our world burns
Can't save those suffering
At what cost will it stop
What choice must be made

One day it all comes back again
The soil reclaims what was taken
Nothing ever belonged to us
For we were just the keepers

As our world burns
Can't save those suffering
At what cost will it stop
What choice must be made

One day it all comes back again
The soil reclaims what was taken
Nothing ever belonged to us
For we were just the keepers
Our kingdom approaches the sun
Consumed by what we became
Time now to repay the debt
For we were just the keepers

So easily fooled
Making outcasts of the free
No favours given for nothing
The cost will never be seen
2. Frozen Gaze (4:06)
Fallen from the order
A whisper of colder days
As a candle flickers
For the last time
Signs of a future pass
The empire falls
Dependence stronger than ever
All precautions taken too late

A deadly game not many survive
Its grip tightens with every hit
Entering into the world of the depraved
Disregard for one's self
The web thickens with every breath
Vortex ever-growing

Voices of the fallen
Spiralling in a world of pain
No one sets you free
From this dark hole
Forever drowning in blood
Conquest will never be yours
Emptiness in your soul

Cast out now
No turning back
On this day
All turns to black

Like a noose wrapped tight around your neck
Brace yourself for the fall
Cold times that lay further ahead
Dying hopes drown out the call
Staring at a frozen dead sky
A lifeless soul reaching out
Swallowed by fear
Time for it to end is now

Cast out now
No turning back
On this day
All turns to black
3. Directive (3:26)
A lifeless struggle now
In time doesn't matter what is done
No way to win—slaves at best
Manufactured to serve
Pictures of this perfect world
Programmed which way to look
All talk yet no recourse

Stare into lights
Dull senses don't ignite
Time to look that way now

Take me from this place
No need to pretend
This life that we lead
Careful balance to the end

Always wanting more
Not a minute to waste
No challenge too wide
Forever chase that bait

Stare into lights
Dull senses don't ignite
Time to look that way now

Take me from this place
No need to pretend
This life that we lead
Careful balance to the end
In time all will be clear
The fools teaching the wise
The young inherit the earth
And balance all the lies

Stare into lights
Dull senses don't ignite
Time to look that way now
4. Deadlands (3:24)
Questioning what to believe in
A barren field of what once was
Left to walk alone into death's embrace

No one to understand the sensation
All is lost yet who would ever know
The release from its grip in reach
A final step towards the true rebirth

Everything must cease to start again
The inevitable in sight, the flickering candle of life
A prophecy told sees truth again
Summon the power to finish the task

Dying hope in a deadland
Fortunes waged in this campaign
Forged by blood but forever lost
The prison cell inside yourself

No one to understand the sensation
All is lost yet who would ever know
The release for its grip in reach
A final step towards the true rebirth

Everything must cease to start again
The inevitable in sight, the flickering candle of life
A prophecy told sees truth again
Summon the power to finish the task
5. As the Kingdom Drowns (4:27)
As a kingdom drowns, spirals into the sea
We think that we are the highest of the evolved
How many times have we been here before
Why did we think this could never happen to us

History doesn't lie
False stories told to subdue the flock
Minds opened
Cities fall as fast as they're built
History doesn't lie
The landscape will tell the true story

This earth had the power to provide for all
Soon it will provide for none

Our precious dreams set to explode
The illusion that once was now gone
Time to drink from this poisoned well
The day will come that our reign will end

Innocence a false claim
All guilty in part
False hopes handed down through generation
Premonitions been told for centuries
Falling on our deaf ears
Our secrets buried in the dust of time
A warning for future man
But will they observe or will they continue
Replicating in a new age

Our precious dreams set to explode
The illusion that once was now gone
Time to drink from this poisoned well
The day will come that our reign will end
6. Beyond the Black (3:46)
Stale solution is inevitable
Careless arrogance
A high-stakes game no one can win
Days are numbered
Never ending struggle of power
Man has failed
One man's war costs everything

Millions tremble as the oceans rise
The endless tide never to recede
As if nature is reclaiming itself
Trying to overcome is pointless
Engulfing this world with flames

As time draws nearer—darkness surrounds your soul
And the shadows march beyond
Born into chaos—the night will be here to stay

An endless wait
Fear the unknown
Consciousness slips beyond your grasp
Silence surrounding
Unsure if we'll die today
Fear in your heart
Mother nature
Left to sweep this earth

As time draws nearer—darkness surrounds your soul
And the shadows march beyond
Born into chaos—the night will be here to stay
Can't travel beyond the black
Emotionless—shattered
Nations swept into the sea
Clean the canvas to start again
Humanity's secrets one day unearthed again
7. Upon These Stones (4:53)
Drawn to sacred earth again
One final breath
Wisdom of the few
Upon these stones of power


Lurking mouling minds
Sweet poison falls like rain
The might of the fallen passed down
Seeking solitude against the few

Minds open to the path ahead
Enlightened state mistaken for sickness
So many questions, so little answers
The hymns of nature never heard


Lurking mouling minds
Sweet poison falls like rain
The might of the fallen passed down
Seeking solitude against the few
8. Momentum of the Void (4:05)
A forgotten world
A forgotten time
Within these walls
We think we live

Numb to our surroundings
Dead to the outside world
Slaves of our own device

We all strive for simplicity
Yet complicating every moment

Our deepest instincts being lost
Submit to the bigger picture
They call it life
We know its lies
Consumed by an endless cycle

We hold onto moments
Tightening our grip
Living in the future
Forgetting the present

We all strive for simplicity
Yet complicating every moment

Our deepest instincts being lost
Submit to the bigger picture
They call it life
We know its lies
Consumed by an endless cycle

We hold onto moments
Tightening our grip
Living in the future
Forgetting the present
9. You Belong Here, Below (2:59)
A never-ending quest to find new meaning
The chambers cease to exist
Blood-drenched, that old familiar feeling
Why a fast descent—like salt poured into wounds
The furnace of hate grows
Too many boundaries have been crossed

Captive to our own minds
Seeking sanctuary
Choices can't be taken lightly
Enlightened no more

Torn between
These two worlds
The darkness embraces
It calls to me
You belong here below

Forever to walk alone in fear
Can't find joy in solitude
No meaningless embrace
Once held everything so close
Now it seems so much wasted time
In the end all turns to ash

Captive to our own minds
Seeking sanctuary
Choices can't be taken lightly
Enlightened no more

Torn between
These two worlds
The darkness embraces
It calls to me
You belong here below

A whispering
Final call
At the gate
All shall fall
