1. Into the Mouth of Eternity (5:37)
Falling to the sand
Smitten by the hand that fed you long ago
How the mighty fall
Once you stood so tall
It gave you vertigo
Now the memory of your life is playing out in front of you

Life, death, a prisonner of mortality
Time flies into the mouth of eternity

Crawling in the dirt
Reeling from the hurt
that just don't go away
Longing to be dead
The sickness in your head
torments you every day
Sorrow is your life,
her claws deep into you

Life, death, a prisonner of mortality
Time flies into the mouth of eternity
Into the heart
Into the lungs of God
Into the mouth of eternity

It's too late to turn back
But you can't move on
Your life'snot over
But your life is done

Mourning your former life
Memory is a knife
whose cut you cannot stand
Reckoning the cost
Everything you've lost brought on by
your own hand
This is the story of your...

Life, death, a prisonner of mortality
Time flies into the mouth of eternity
Into the heart
Into the lungs of God
Into the mouth of eternity
2. Cruel Magic (5:07)
Behold the magus you've
summoned to serve you
Wearing darkness and a swastika smile
Imperious power rests in his hands
Use it wisely, he's at your command

Have no doubt none
can resist his
cruel magic
Hear me out before
you inflict this cruel magic
Once you invoke it someone must pay

Heed this voice
and the warning it brings you
He is in union with spirits most malign
Impervious to pity
he'll drive on the pain
Take him not lightly
if you play this game

Have no doubt none
can resist his
cruel magic
Hear me out before
you inflict this cruel magic
Once you invoke it someone must pay

Witchery from the dark land,
the cradle of life
Name your subject and do as you will with his life
Wreak your vengence upon those who have wronged you
Trial in absentia, retribution by spell
Retribution
Cruel magic
Retribution
Cruel magic
Once you invoke it someone must pay
3. The Doomsday Clock (3:47)
The elders returned a man to a time
before we fell
Something would have to be changed
Eliminate the maniacs who sent the world to Hell
To save us in the present day

One final throw
Call it cosmic intervention
The course of history
will have to be changed
We must stop the doomsday clock
before it's too late

Grimly optimistic
he returned to his own time
To find a planet in the grip of fear
No less apocalyptic
than the world he'd left behind
Deliverance had failed to appear

One final throw
Call it cosmic intervention
The course of history
will have to be changed
We must stop the doomsday clock
before it's too late

Time after time lord we've tried
To keep annihilation at bay
To engineer a way to survive
Now we stand on the brink of doomsday

Time is in the hand of the universe the
hands of the clock point
to doomsday again

Time is in the hand of the universe the
hands of the clock point
to doomsday again

One final throw
Call it cosmic intervention
The course of history
will have to be changed
We must stop the doomsday clock
before it's too late
4. Legions Hellbound (5:00)
The end of the war is in sight and the
world holds its breath
About to send a million men
Into glory or death
The enemy knows we are coming,
the traps are set
Legions facing the sea
Legions dauntless are we
Legions recklessly hellbound
The day of the overlord is now

Battalions of eleven nations
are joined in this fight
To stand against the power of evil
because is it right
Full steam we arrive
with the tide and the light
Legions wave after wave
Legions rifles and blades
Legions recklessly hellbound
The day of the overlord is now

The fire-eyed maid of smoky war
beckons us with her dreadful sound
Brothers, as we reach the shore, break
not with faith nor courage now
Fear not of pain
Nor death
Nor loss
No more can grieve you
If all should end here
on the longest day

Sword beach and our mettle
Is put to the test
American blood is running deep
In the sand to the west
Tooth and nail
painfully onward we press
Legions dead in the sand
Legions wresting command
Legions recklessly hellbound
The day of the overlord is now
5. Ophidian (4:27)
The poison kiss I bring
Men have learned to fear
Dread this deadly sting
Tremble when I'm near
I have nothing but
Contempt for the rise of man
Slither in the dust
Know my name, Ophidian

Cursed to live where heaven sent me
I put a blight on God's creation

Ophidian
Though I crawl in the dirt
I look down on humans
And to Eden my kind shall return
I bow to no one
I am Ophidian

I lie in wait for helpless human mice
Consume their essence one by one
I grow stronger with every sacrifice
So be it til man is gone

Ophidian
Though we crawl in the dirt
We are above humanity
And to Eden my kind shall return
We bow to no one
We are Ophidian

I predate mna
This garden once was mine
I will outlast man
Ophidian will have it's time

The rise of Ophidian
The rise of Ophidian
The rise of Ophidian
The rise of Ophidian
6. My Prohpetic Soul (4:36)
Once I did dream of a ghost and
betrayal from within
I paid no heed. Now my father lies
cold in the sand
By his brother's hand
On my prophetic soul
I should have listened to you
You chanced to warn me
Yet I let it go
My prophetic soul

She came to em through the dark
as a beacon of light
I did not see how the demon
inside her grew
Though somehow I knew
On my prophetic soul
I should have listened to you
You chanced to warn me
Yet I let it go
My prophetic soul

Let the inner truth guide you
Your prophetic soul

Trust the voice within you
Do not doubt it's source
Truth from deep within you
Use your guiding force

On my prophetic soul
I should have listened to you
You chanced to warn me
Yet I let it go
My prophetic soul

Let the inner truth guide you
Your prophetic soul
7. Death Knell for a King (3:53)
Too long you've ruled us with impunity
Corrupt, sadistic, unfit to reign
Now we the people
have risen against you in unity
To rid this kingdom of your stain

The world is baying for your blood
You're finished, alone and on the run

Heed - a death knell for a king
A death kneel for a king
No refuge is safe for you
Can you hear the death bells ring

Many would like to see your head
served on a plate
A hollow banquet on which to feed
Scant revenge by the state
Sill many would gladly do the deed

Former comrades will not cry
They're lining up to see you die

Heed - a death knell for a king
A death kneel for a king
Your downfall you caused it all
Hear the death bell ring
The hounds are closing in,
no place to hide
Even as we pull your palace down

Infernal doom awaits you
on the other side
A knave turned king
who sold his crown

Your crimes of war can't be ignored
And now we put you to the sword

Heed the death knell
Heed the death knell
Heed the death knell
Heed a death knell for a king
No refuge is safe for you
Can you hear the death bells ring
8. Who Among Us (6:01)
They called him a demon
But he was no more than a man
And the crimes for
which they censured him
Were too much for them to understand
So much for forgiveness
An open hand, a spirit of grace
And the world that he'd built anew
Was torn apart and taken away

Let him who hath understanding now
occupy this throne
And any man who is without sin, let him
cast the first stone
Will it be you
Will it be me
Who among us will cast the first stone

The words of Christ must have fallen on
deaf ears and stony ground
For his disciples took his wisdom and
twisted it around
Will it be you
Will it be me
Who among us is worthy
to cast the first stone

Deliver the first stone if you can
Deliver the first blow if you be
Worthy of your fellow man
Who among us could it be

An enlightened student of the stars
once tried to show us
what he'd learned
But men weren't ready for the truth, he
realised as he burned

Will it be you
Will it be me
Who among us is worthy
to cast the first stone
They called him a demon
9. Ghosts of Monongah (5:14)
It was the worst thing the town
had ever seen
One hundred years ago
They say the walls of the shaft caved in
Trapping men at the seam below
A fire began and grew out of control
Consuming the air and the walls that
were thick with raw coal

Three hundred and seven men
Consigned to the flames alive
From above they heard it all
The agonized dying cries of Monongah

The hopeless survivors waited
Fearing the dead were the lucky ones
As the conflagration neared
The men clasped hands
and beseeched their God
To let it be quick but the end
would come slow
Black fire devoured the skin and the
flesh from their bones

Three hundred and seven men
Consigned to the flames alive
From above they heard it all
Every agonized dying cries at Monongah

A Place of unholy rest
Where the dead will not be still
A place of unsettled debt
Where their spirits haunt that hill

It was the worst thing
the town had ever known
So many dead below
They say when the wind blows you can
still hear the screams of woe
There are some things
that can never be erased
Unspeakable suffering has left a reproach on this place

Three hundred and seven men
Three hundred and seven souls
From above they can still be heard
The unavenged crying ghosts
of Monongah
10. Mortality (6:00)
Watching as the brakes
fall on my existence
Leaving control somewhere
back in the distance
Rushing feeling
Sense of falling
Will my feet ever touch the ground
Something took me with no warning
I know not why or to where I'm bound

Mortality
Living the life of a fly

Hurtling headlong over the ocean
Can't seem to arrest
this perpetual motion
Suddenly flying
More than falling
But no sense of direction
Something pulls me to my calling
Like a spirit to ascension

Mortality
Gone in the blink of a cosmic eye

Faster and faster the candle burns low
The accelerated flame
Is the soonest to go
The boy child who wept when he first
learned of death
His father's words stayed with him
till his last breath

A man looks to the heavens
Father can you hear?
Please help me to understand
Why am I here

Mortality
Conscious of life speeding by
Mortality
Make a choice slow down or die

Slow down or die
Slow down or die
In the blink of an eye
Slow down or die
Mortality
