Track Name: Labyrinth
Enter the maze
Renounce all sense of guidance
Withstand the loss of peace
Survival must be earned
Whilst pain endured

Witness
A new storm’s birth
The eye stares right at you
Dazed by the dancing winds
That rip you open

In the depths of your mind
You’ll lie lost and blind

True dread you shall know
When qualm strikes your soul

And so it starts
The awareness of doubt
Fear the brother of sleep
Race the labyrinth full of angst
Your descent has just begun
Track Name: Nexus
I doubt, wallowing in despair
Revolving in circles like halos for demons
I bleed, wicked and shadow bound
Corrupted, I bathe in these faithless waters

The cracks in the pallid bust of Pallas
Which I’ve locked upon my closet
Beckon me for the blessed freedom
That by fear I choose to deny

A craven, in sovereign cowardice
Hiding in fear of enlightenment
Confused, accusing a world
As blasphemous as me

And I, the tasteless jester
The paladin of defeat
The king of all things won and lost
Emperor of self-deceit

In every altar a fool
In every pulpit a liar
In all of us, an evil lies
As we lunge blindly towards the pyre

With a pair of crows
To keep me company

As my heart turns to stone
Shattered in sheer desperation
Desolated, I stand
Facing the void of emptiness

In every altar a fool
In every pulpit a liar
In all of us, an evil lies
As we lunge blindly towards the pyre
Track Name: Crushing Skies
The skies are falling over me
They’re crushing me and I can’t breathe
Under clouds blackened with grief
This damned land will be my grave

Like a dying match my head burns to ash
Like a broken clock my heart beats out of time
I call to you oh spirit, come ease my doubts
Have mercy on me, save me, tear my soul apart
Free me from my mind, for I am lost
Please shield me with all your might

The skies are falling over me
They’re crushing me and I can’t breathe
Under clouds blackened with grief
This damned land will be my grave

An animated corpse in a common ditch
Undead from mental wounds and scars unstitched
The weight of the whole cosmos on my chest
I fear even when I’m gone I’ll still find no rest
Free me from my body, it can take no more
On my knees, hear me screaming for protection

Your song of wisdom amidst uncertainty
Oh how I need to hear that symphony
Bringer of truth, make me your disciple
There are secrets for me to unveil

The skies are falling down
Crushing me and suffocating
Under blackened clouds
This land will be my grave

All hope dies
Crushing Skies
Track Name: Pale March
Curse of the world

Riding from the depths
From the abyss we all fear
Harbingers of plague
Our dreadful fate is near

Death of hope, season of death
Time to suffer, time to rue
Peaceful nights long gone
As greater fears come true

Oh, Armageddon
There’s nowhere to run
Our sanctum
Our shrine now destroyed

Aim of the bow
Flash of the blade
Hoofs set ablaze

Tilt of the scale
Swing of the scythe
Void in their wake

March on, pale march
March on

Walls painted white
Ground painted red
The prophecy starts to unfold

Skies painted black
Clouds painted green
Behold the dawn of the end

March on, pale march

Plague, War
Famine, Death

The colors of the pale march
Track Name: Flow Of Time
Rivers of life never seem still
Flowing through eternity
On through valleys and hills
Underneath and high above

Yet we’re left with only thirst
Loose traces of how it all came to be
This cruel fate is our curse
In the flow of time

For each moment
Each cherished episode
Each decisive event

All belong to yesterday
Monuments to a past
Blurred and fading away

Twisted out of form
Life is a constant storm

This cruel fate is our curse
In the flow of time
Track Name: Storm Alive
Stars and skies fail to tell the truth
About this world and where it all came from
How did it start when will it end, for what
Does this exist, what goal is there in life
There’s no answer at all

We dig through time and try to comprehend
Through age we live and learn to fear the end
Through time we learn from what was done before
But have no way to really know for sure
What we’re truly here for

In the wake of adversity
At the edge of despair
Dark claws ripping skin
Shattered consciousness
This storm is alive

Our minds, weakened from the constant doubt
Our weary bodies fall and hit the ground
From ashes born and ashes we’ll become
But really what are all these ashes for?

On the verge of a cliff
Just about to fall
In a broken mind
There are no flickers of light
This storm is alive

I depart
I drown
I despair - I exist - I accept - I repeat

Storm Alive

Open the skies
Let it all come down

In the wake of adversity
At the edge of despair
Strong winds wash my skin
Numbness, take hold
This storm is alive
Track Name: Wasteland
(Instrumental)
