Track Name: Beyond the Pale
Her web of lies is gossamer; ethereal
She is war, famine, pestilence and blight...

“Is my debt yet paid
Has my soul been saved?
The road that death has paved
Is degradation to my name “

She keeps a pale horse underneath her
Forlorn and lonely is her plight
She is gods unholy reaper
who’s unearthly sadness fuels her might.

Her hood is pulled high to hide her beauty
she rolls her eyes back to white
she is gods unholy reaper
A scale in one hand, in the other, a scythe...

AND I AM LEFT WITH WHAT IS LEFT
AND WHAT I’M LEFT WITH IS DEATH
Track Name: Confession
This is my confession
I have lost all of my friends
I've lost more than that
And I don't know if I can get it back
I've gone off the deep end
Can't seem to find my way home
A broken man confides
Choking out a long bitter goodbye

This is my diary
My sonnet my symphony
All my fears I can find in thee
My blood, my sweat, my tyranny
You would need my eyes
If you were to see
That I am just me
Not the demon you made me to be

Why weeps the willow
A sadness in the root says i
A smoky diary that billows
A cloud of sorrow with each sigh
Track Name: Croweater
Dark wings cast a shadow
And a field of darkness grows
Spreading wings out over sorrow
My only choice is to eat the crow

Born of broken oaths
Bourne away on broken oak
This old shield is turning over
Staining red upon the clover


The battlefield quiets
Like a lull in a song
I was always the shield they were breaking upon
---
The giant has fallen
And left me alone
But I'm building my throne from
What's left of its bones



Some would call this murder
Others know it's the only way
I'm steeped in the blood of brothers
A stain that won't seem to wash away

All these Crimson spattered feathers
Blow forlorn amongst the heather
Dark wings circle over
A long shadow growing older

I'll make the mountains weep
The watered earth then will heave
And give back the planted seed
Yeah
Track Name: Uprising
As you believe you know
What fool mercy were we shown
And you dare to make a stand
And point at me with crimson hands
On a quiet cobbled street
That was slightly out of reach
Tears can’t wash away the blood
A poor attempt to keep it clean

I’ve known it all along
I could feel it in my bones
A slow and subtle building
A long fuse that’s end is nearing
The devils grinning wide
Too arrogant to run and hide
I can feel it in my bones
This is where we come home

I SEETHE
WITH RAGE AND HATE AT ALL THAT YOU BELIEVE

BELIEVE
WITH ALL AT STAKE WE CAN’T AFFORD DEFEAT

Where was hope when we were suffering so dearly?
You are a plague
Now our eyes are seeing clearly?
selling new hope or fraud – pretender
slight of hand - slavery vender
we line up 50,000 strong or stronger
a silent death day growing ever longer
both sides are rolling eyes
the puppetmasters spew thier lies
against the press of marching ides
RISE! RISE! RISEEEE!!!!
Track Name: Bones of Birds
The silent way your eyes light up with the stormy sky
My mouth is like the desert
I thirst for something that can only mean goodbye...and
I'm on my way

Hot house sweat, beating down your brow
The atomic age set you down
Half forgotten truths, swirl like paint
Oil and water, the same way the blood will make you faint

Lips worn thin like the atmosphere
There are holes in the cosmos
Everything seems fragile like the bones of birds...and
Opened your mouth and said those familiar words

AN ECHO IN THE BONE,
THE GNASHING OF MY TEETH,
WITH EVERY WAKING MOMENT,
I'M FINDING IT HARDER AND HARDER TO BREATHE
Track Name: Burn the Witch
In a dirty hovel
forced to live away from where she loves
wouldn't ask for this
never would she ask for this

along the muddy road less traveled
she drinks from fountains of melted snow
wouldn't ask for this
never would she ask for this

Don't you take for granted
all the lies you tell yourself
and if you do, you risk returning
all the secrets that you've kept
she won't ask forgiveness
she's done nothing wrong
but in the night air shes burning
shes'll be burning all night long

TIME WILL NOT RESCUE YOU
OLD SCARS WILL BEGIN TO ITCH
AND WHEN THEY DO
YOU'LL BURN THE WITCH
