Track Name: Into the Abattoir
Next to the life I live there is a shadow world
Batons of cruelty passed from hand to hand
Cut to the left fly to the right
You cannot escape the maze you cannot escape the blade
Cut to the left fly to be right
You cannot escape the gaze you cannot escape his blade

Your hunger is the reason why I die
Gluttons fill their taste for life blind to the grind and tears
Do not sigh the time to cry is when the laughter that fills the air
Poisoning the well from which we all must drink or surely die

Your hunger is the reason why I die tonight in this shadow world
Poisoning the well from which we all must drink or surely die
All my dreams all my dashing hopes
Pull me down so I can drown in desire

Harvesting no ill will I move into a field of rage
Counting all the ageless songs we all sing when our time is done
Close to me giver of my life
Same will burn, cut and kill in spite

Time after time we held each other embracing truth
Darkened our hearts without emotion lust bleeds thru
And now I see in this brief moment a calling to
Calling to run and from pretending I'll take my due

One by one we're still going down
To where we can hide from mortality

Time after time we held each other embracing truth
Darkened our hearts without emotion lust bleeds thru
And now I see in this brief moment a calling to
Calling to run and from pretending I'll take my due
Track Name: Crown the Night
I was born in the dead of the night
Darkness gave me the true meaning of my life
When the sun rose I was cast into the light
I drink poison now to block it out
Joining those who perish in its wake

We own the night and all of her hidden promises
We own the right to see clearly in the darkness

What once was feared is now reveled in
Darkness reveals the true meaning of my life
As the sun sets a crown is placed upon my head
Taking those in my wake

Daylight dreamers holding tight as we grow old
We own the night and all of her hidden promises
We own the right to see clearly in the darkness

Now I see myself falling faster down
We own the night and all of her hidden promises
We own the right to see clearly in the darkness

As she casts her pall
A pox upon me now
Brought down low
By the the day
Track Name: Mausoleum of Dreams
Locked up in my mind but never trailing far behind
My fading memory sutured up inside

Take these bones, flesh and marrow to the estate
Build by scornful pride, petrified brazen lies

My greatest feats have yet to come to me
The cut of final words allow the cast of dreams to flow
Count the final words of nights and dawns long past
My memories hold their own in this vicious state

How I long to feel peaceful rivers of reverie
I’d love to be disturbed if only from time to time
Let my will be washed away, grave monuments will remain

My greatest feats have yet to come to me
So open up the door and whisper to the world

There is no perfect time, there is no perfect time, there is no perfect time
Memories will die
There is no perfect time, there is no perfect time, there is no perfect time
Memories will die

King of solitude, rule of these lonely years
I’d love to be disturbed if only from time to time
Let my will be washed away, grave monuments will remain

There is no perfect time, there is no perfect time, there is no perfect time
Memories will die
There is no perfect time, there is no perfect time, there is no perfect time
Memories will die

Ignored by passersby, trailing far behind
My faded history not buried but locked inside
No sight in front, dreams behind, I want to feel again
To open up and cry out to the world

There is no perfect time, there is no perfect time, there is no perfect time
Memories will die
There is no perfect time, there is no perfect time, there is no perfect time
Memories will die
Track Name: Iron Will
I am a metalhead bound by no god bound by no man
Thriving and living life, destroying with sound as sharp as a knife
But there's a core to me made of iron and loyalty
Come closer if you please

We are all metalheads bound by no god bound by no man
Drink from the stein of life
Beer – Women – Music – Fights
The music that we play and pay homage to it burns in our veins
Come closer if you please, join us in the triumph of the night

Whether near or far we will be there by your side
Crushing through the dark, drink your beer and have your hide

Bound by Iron Will
Strength in our name
We are together now
Power and might, metal will strike

Bound by Iron Will
Strength in our name
We are together now
Power and might, metal will fucking rule you all

Bound by Iron Will
Strength in our name
We are together now
Power and might, metal will strike

Bound by Iron Will
Strength in our name
We are together now
Power and might, Iron Will we shall never die
Track Name: Suffer Our Sins
Six lonely years but never alone
Like salt tears thrust into the wound
Days beat down on me with nothing in return
Known only victory truly this is my fate

I bite your dreams and I take them for my own
I spite your very will and take it for my own

Risked my life for my love, a vertigo belief
Shed my skin for love, a steady non relief

I bite your dreams and I take them for my own
I spite your very will and take it for my own

Chained by the night
The future's in our hands
Chained by the night
The future's in our hands
As I pass, then I dash through the needle's eye
Chained by the night
Darkness you are my only friend

So slow is my demise, gain mortality
C'est la mort I say, a steady non relief
Days beat down on me with nothing in return
Known only victory truly this is my fate

Chained by the night
The future's in our hands
Chained by the night
The future's in our hands
As I pass, then I dash through the needle's eye
Chained by the night
Darkness you are my only friend
Track Name: Clarion of Regret
My time withers away
There is no return, regret has its way
And if you know about those regrets
The poison in your veins
And if you ever looked to the past
The sorrow that remains

Echoes of silence
Sound from squandered youth
Cries of pride etched upon my tomb

Give me a little more time
To cast away the all fears, to make the wrong seem right
Give me something to believe
That all the time that passed me by is still mine to receive

Sometimes the bleak is all we see
But times have changed, why can't we have it all
I know times have changed, why can't we have it all

Mortality plagued by innocence
Starvation wilts, I fill
Heat of passion burns
Warms my cold dead heart

Echoes of silence
Sound from squandered youth
Cries of pride etched upon my tomb

My dominion, this clarion to bestow
Its blood wrought wisdom, a widow to my soul

Give me a little more time
To cast away the all fears, to make the wrong seem right
Give me something to believe
That all the time that passed me by is still mine to receive
Track Name: Anthems of Triumph and Tragedy
The white race is clawing through the earth
Constant push and pull of wasted lives
Long ago the mold was cast
That why the story's always sung
Predicate violence, in praise of the silence
A fist clenched hand keeps the flesh warm

Etched in granite forged in fear
That the end times never come
I look to see who's not my enemy
In the end I know its only me

Each of us a world apart
Cast together, ill-fated lot
Acts of unkindness, societies' blindness
Ripped away, Keep the flesh warm

History seers hard fought glory
Victors stand to tell the story
Final days of gods and man, we are over again
Ascending towards past salvation
Hidden by our own creation
Final days of machines and man are over again

Ascending ever skyward, transcending life
Never wayward, wash away the past before we fall

Dynasties rise, empires fall
New tribes await to pick clean all the bones
Civilized violence, there will never by silence
A hollow earth is all to claw through now

History seers hard fought glory
Victors stand to tell the story
Final days of gods and man, we are over again
Ascending towards past salvation
Hidden by our own creation
Final days of machines and man are over again
Track Name: Forever Forgotten
I walk the lonely road, a journey without end
I search the infinite, emptiness my only friend
I long for all that was, and will ever be
To make my mark upon the shroud, the veil of history
Watching as the world goes by
We are but memories caught in time

I close my eyes, flowing like a river or choose to walk the line
You could remember these words, your fate lies upon the path you take

Forever Forgotten you will never be remembered
A brief moment in time means everything to me
Forever Forgotten you will never be remembered
Holding onto bitter life means everything to be

Are we damned to fade away
Who will carry on our name
Nothing's out of sight
Nothings out of reach
Memories caught in time
