1. Death's Sting (3:49)
You are all goalless creatures
With no purpose or direction
But anew you've tapped into
My pain and rage in this insurrection

I, the maker, will descend
(And) to heaven's fury you will bend
During the encore of the night
I will not stand idly by
While the people they apply
Themselves with eternity

O grave, where is your victory?
Death, where is your sting?
The sting of death is sin
And the power of sin is the law

Did you ever think that you'll be safe
In the world you built upon me?
O grave, is this your victory?
Death, is this your sung?

Death, is this your sting? Death's sting

All your souls are bleeding out
You overstayed your welcome
All condemned and persecuted
To the sound of an angelic drum
All your souls are bleeding out
You overstayed your welcome
All condemned and persecuted
To the sound of an angelic drum

O grave, where is your victory?
Death, where is your sting?
The sting of death is sin
And the power of sin is the law

Did you ever think that you'll be safe
In the world you built upon me?
O grave, is this your victors? Death's sting

When the mortal has has been clothed with immortality
To halt death's gravity
Then what's been written comes to pass

O grave, where is your victory?
Death, where is your sting?
The sting of death is sin
And the power of sin is the law

Did you ever think that you'll be safe
In the world you built upon me?
O grave, is this your victory?
Did you ever think that you'll be safe
In the world you built upon me?
O grave, is this your victory?
2. The Heartbleed Bug (4:04)
Time is there so everything
Doesn’t happen at once
But in my more recent past
That law didn’t aid me very fast

With a thousand sensations
I was burned alive
All during one split second
And chaos arrived

Keep breaking my own rules
For us both to pull through
Breaking my rules

Keep breaking my own rules
I do it for you
For us both to pull through
But I will need time to assemble my heart
For our new start

Crashed into who I am
And discovered that friends
Are simply just enemies
That didn’t have the chance
To stab you in the back yet
So this is rock bottom?
No one was down here to break my fall
There’s just one way out of here
And that’s up

Keep breaking my own rules
I do it for you
For us both to pull through
But I will need time to assemble my heart
For our new start

True love, a chemical illusion, a heartbleed bug…
Merely chance, or could it all be real?
Was it the hand of fate that pushed another chess piece
Moving the Queen and forcing the King into position
Checkmate
I will never truly know
Saturate
My heart with your poison
Your poison

Keep breaking my own rules
For us both to pull through
Breaking my rules

Keep breaking my own rules
I do it for you
For us both to pull through
But I will need time to assemble my heart
For our new start
My heart is still bleeding
It’s bleeding over you
I think we can pull through
But I will need time to assemble myself
For our new start
3. Legendary (3:47)
Out from the light of lights
Into the ice-cold blackest night
Where crosses ceased to grow
Long ago

We didn’t wait for the right moment
Cause we ourselves created it
We fought side by side and back to back
Made no mistakes, like a wolf pack

And you followed us until the end
To the end

Your pain will be legendary
Legendary pain
We did not forget
We never did forgive
And we righted all the wrongs

Now part of it is over
And we lost some weight on our shoulder
Looking back at our legacy
It’s been quite an odyssey

We became death himself
Singing the hymns of the damned
Resistance was our duty
And the prize was your life and beauty

And you followed us until the end
To the end

Your pain will be legendary
Legendary pain
We did not forget
We never did forgive
And we righted all the wrongs
Memories will burn brightly
Burning memories
Unguided we were
Unguided we’ll be
Remember our songs

The frost rose blooms again
Through the power of the eclipse
O, how it grows

And we righted all the wrongs
Remember our songs
And we righted all the wrongs
Remember our songs

Your pain will be legendary
Legendary pain
We did not forget
We never did forgive
And we righted all the wrongs
Memories will burn brightly
Burning memories
Unguided we were
Unguided we’ll be
Remember our songs
Remember

Unguided we were
Unguided we’ll be
Unguided we were
Unguided we will be
4. Dark Metamorphosis (3:39)
I have always been my own teacher
And, of course, my favorite pupil
I knew that this resilient creature
Would our aspirations fulfill

And when Zion calls
They will respond
Six hundred ten inbound
It will take some hundred years
But worth the wait to rid our fears

Why settle for the night
When we can rule the world we walk upon?
And the eclipse made it clear whose side the sky was on

All beings, they must sleep
Must dream, still and quietly
But these are no domestic sheep
They will watch over us tirelessly

We prepare for another battle royale
Evolution is complete
Spawned into another battle royale
The wraiths will be our elite

Why settle for the night
When we can rule the world we walk upon?
And the eclipse made it clear whose side the sky was on
Whenever I say "right". I always mean that it should be perfect
And the dark angels were everything (that)
We'd expect, bred to protect

Greater men than yourself
Have fallen in the past
You are right to be afraid
Of what they have become

Why settle for the night when we can rule the world
Why settle for the night when we can rule...

Why settle for the night
When we can rule the world we walk upon?
And the eclipse made it clear whose side the sky was on
Whenever I say "right", I always mean that it should be perfect
And the dark angels were everything (that)
We'd expect, bred to protect
5. A Link to the Past (3:59)
There is supposed to be light at the end (of the tunnel)
But all I see is just more tunnel...
Tomorrow all of the sorrow
But we just keep keeping on

You cut yourself to sleep
Lost in a nightmare far too deep
You give with one hand
But you take away with the other

You can have your way with me
Being your rock takes everything I've cot
You keep me convinced
There's something good still left in this ruined world

I shrugged off your punch to my face
And collected the teeth from the ground
Tossed them back in my mouth
Friendly fire has made me strong

Just grab life by the throat
And chokeslam it to the ground
Life is as hard as it gets
Doesn't help with your regrets

You can have your way with me
Being your rock takes everything I've got
You keep me convinced
There's something good still left in this ruined world

What takes us back are memories
What carries us forward are our dreams
Until death (will) do us a part

You can have your way with me
Being your rock takes everything I've got
You keep me convinced...

You can have your way with me
Being your rock takes everything I've got
You keep me convinced
There's something good still left in this ruined world
We can travel south until
Our hearts start beating, start beating again
I know you are
The only thing still good about this world
6. Anchor Stone (of the World) (4:15)
When their work first began
It was just us and them
The world was young
No warning of a future mayhem

After a while they picked their God
The seven found it rather odd
This flesh-shaper would deceive us all

A dark agenda, he poisoned the tree of life
And from its deadly wood, eve designed her jealous strife

The first murder in our world
It was of greed by an envious breed
The soul was lost, lost till this day

No one knows what power is locked within oneself
Until this one day
When you can't walk away from that burning fray
And your potential comes into full display

The Seraphim held their breath
(Now when) man got the recipe of death
And the false God was banished to the deep below

Adam, he became the heart
The throne of heaven was his part
But his daughter he would never get to see again

The light of heaven, now under his command
It was set in motion and bound to get out of hand

The first murder in our world
It was of greed by an envious breed

No one knows what power is locked within oneself
Until this one day
When you can't walk away from that burning fray
And your potential comes into full display

I saw a thousand stars at night
And prayed to them all
Just to save your soul

Anchor stone
Of the world
She anchor stone
Of the world
The soul is lost
The soul of the world

No one knows what power is locked within oneself
Until this one day
When you can't walk away from that burning fray
And your potential comes into full display
7. Manipulate Fear (3:00)
Sometimes it appears
To be better to throw
The grenade where you stand and jump

Being on my trail means you're always behind me
And you looked for love
In all the wrong places

The glass through which you see is dark
But not as dark as my soul

If you kill me now
I'll get stuck in my own nightmare
And prison bars of the mind
Are no less solid steel than the dagger
That you put in my back

(So) what's behind the corner?
Usually another corner
Imagine a world without them
You wouldn't be able to cut any

That's unlucky for you
I mean, save from being a try-hard
Your life is built on
Other people's hard work

You are a waste of a human body
A bit extreme, but if the shoe fits?

If you kill me now
I'll get stuck in my own nightmare
And prison bars of the mind
Are no less solid steel than the dagger
That you put in my back

For years and years
I've been staring at these walls
Brick by brick, I tear them down
I tear them down all the way to the ground

And from your side you are helping out
More than you know

If you kill me now
I'll get stuck in my own nightmare
If you kill me now
I'll get stuck in my own nightmare
And prison bars of the mind
Are no less solid steel than the dagger
That you put in my back
8. Force of Nature (4:04)
We blindly follow instincts but we never knew the reason
Like a Trojan horse placed amidst ourselves

First step avoiding the trap is to understand that it's there
Second step would naturally be to slop walking right into it
(But) not for man, no, no, no
We have an inability
To learn from our past mistakes
(Something) exceeded only by our
Moral flexibility
(You know) the wrong side of sanity
(And that's) our greatest quality
Allow me to present humanity

What if the truth is really too true?
And we forgot how to human
(Let's) dance in their mushroom cloud stew
Decommissioning of man
How can it be so hard to share this space at all?
Just carefully listen
To nature's final call

Let those bombs go off in your mind and leave nothing behind
Gonna make (you) an offer that you might not understand
Cause we are just numbers on a spreadsheet to them
Our leaders currency has always been a lie

We must starve the cross
Embrace the force of nature
We must starve the cross
And admit all our failures

What if the truth is really too true?
And we forgot how to human
(Let's) dance in their mushroom cloud stew
Decommissioning of man
How can it be so hard to share I his space at all?
Just carefully listen
To nature's final call

We must starve the cross
Embrace the force of nature

Moral flexibility
(You know) the wrong side of sanity
(And that's) our greatest quality
Allow me to present humanity

What if the truth is really too true?
And we forgot how to human
(Let's) dance in their mushroom cloud stew
Decommissioning of man
How can it be so hard to share this space at all?
Just carefully listen
To nature's final call
9. King's Fall (4:33)
A legacy, it isn't what we say when we are here
It's what others (will) say about us
When we're gone and reunited in the timeless void
I never even wanted this for myself
It's just something that came with the oath we took
To the people that we swore to protect in times of despair

No king rules forever
Their constant burden

Even the sun cannot light up this dark day
The night strangles the rays away
(But) your heroic tales I will pass on
Now when you are gone

You buried the dagger in the shoulder
That used to carry you through hell
Winning wars for you in the past
Never gave us anything

Nothing's forever

Even the sun cannot light up this dark day
The night strangles the rays away
(But) your heroic tales I will pass on
Now when you're gone
And in his crown, no one would ever fit
Everyone would break beneath it
I watch your son's troubled eyes
As the last anthem dies

At the edge of souls
He gave his life
To heal the death of the prince
The king is dead

The king is dead
Long live the king
The king is dead
Long live the king
The king is dead
Long live the king

Nothing is forever
The constant burden

Even the sun cannot light up this dark day
The night strangles the rays away
(But) your heroic tales I will pass on
Now when you're gone
And in his crown, no one would ever fit
Everyone would break beneath it
I watch your son's troubled eyes
As the last anthem dies
10. Nighttaker (Bonus Track) (3:48)
All I know is that you don't
Brawl your demons and defeat them
No, you fight them…
You fight them every single day
For the rest of your life
You live and breathe them

My time is coming
But yours is now
Walk in my footsteps
Son, all is yours

I always pull my weight
(I pull hers too)
And I walk the walk just straight
(The route is true)
But we're taking turns to lead
(Two minds, one soul)
And we're taking turns to bleed
There is no maker
Except the Nighttaker

He's been silent far too long
Heaven's heart, what is wrong?
It kind of makes you wonder
Are you even watching now?
Is this something you'll allow?
I hear the distant thunder

Darkness is surrounding me
It has indeed returned
But I gave the world their heir
Who will walk in my light
Feel the peace
Touch the stillness
Lay down your arms
(There's) nothing to fear…

I always pull my weight
(I pull hers too)
And I walk the walk just straight
(The route is true)
But we're taking turns to lead
(Two minds, one soul)
And we're taking turns to bleed
There is no maker
Except the Nighttaker

Nighttaker
Daybreaker
Neither (is a) peacemaker
Just distorters of the world

I always pull my weight
I walk the walk just straight
We're taking turns to lead
We're taking turns to bleed

I always pull my weight
(I pull hers too)
And I walk the walk just straight
(The route is true)
But we're taking turns to lead
(Two minds, one soul)
And we're taking turns to bleed
There is no maker…
11. Daybreaker (Bonus Track) (3:46)
Living might seem to be, at times
A perfect waste of fine death
(Just) face the sunset
And draw your last breath
Forfeit life now

Then it strikes you, you're not
Privileged just like mortals
(Cause) you are eternal
(And) to the ones infernal
You'll never bow

Grow me an army worthy of our name
Fierce and strong with a righteous aim
They'll guard the brotherhood
And crush the sky for good
At least that's what we believed…

Now save our souls
Here at the front
Everybody makes it until they don't
And while our hearts pretend to beat
You will never witness our defeat
Now save our souls

No one is free
Until everyone is
It's not a drill
And you won't fulfill
What's set before you
Daybreaker, have you reached the depths of your capacity?
At this rate, you'll soon be the King of nothing
(You know) at the end of the game
The King and the pawn
Always return to the same box

Now save our souls
Here at the front
Everybody makes it until they don't
And while our hearts pretend to beat
You will never witness our defeat
Now save our souls
