Track Name: at the gallows
You never let them walk way from what they borrow
until they're gone of ghosts we are afraid
we will become them in our chains
with no past to claim due to sorrow
tomorrows' dead and we let it go to waste
now we swallow all the blame
and let them be the same as the hollow promise made
so let them be afraid

you're under the spell
drowning in fear
what are you now?
in the hole going down
as above so below

it happens all the time
cant sustain under this heavy load
never blossoms in your mind
every plateau is a volcano
makes you wonder how many signs you've missed
saw the world over your shoulder
and yes these wolves travel in packs
but you'll grow smarter as you grow older
don't damn it all the day is young

those stolen moments under the bridge
desolation cast to wander on
unlock the puzzle pieces of the pie
some things are better left alone
all things decay it's in the air
fall like trees we come and go till were gone

gone daddy gone already gone
watching the walls fall upon us
slaves master rage spill blood on the page
cages they rumble as minds cave
it's bone against bone face it your own
another star death another one is born
spawned by the sword they became lords
before it's too late someone should pull the chord
hex round the neck gasping the air you were born to breath
doom factors doom in your heart there's no room
do you feel like there's something you were meant to do

your crutch Midas touch eternal crux
it's hard to have soul when you're mortal
today is your day to sleight their game
bring down the power of thunder
graves begin to shake mountains they quake
call on the flame turn it to ash
eyes that are burning with freedoms reign

now you're kneeling at the gallows
these wounds are far too deep to moan
now you looked death right in the eye
and told him you're not afraid to die
the poison dripping on your tongue
the brazen blade no longer painful
so let it go the broken arrow just let it go

it happens all the time
cant sustain under this heavy load
never blossoms in your mind
every plateau is a volcano
Track Name: hour of the wolf
holy man
you mold it and buy it so you hold it tight
cold is the fire
dulling your nerves as you slowly die
holy man
you watched it and tried it so let it slide
what is this void
lost as the world that it's coming to

her body knows her body takes
her body says you'll never find your way
her eyes they burn behind the flame
you're her captive you don't need a name
her body kills her body makes
her body tells your mind to wake

encircled by snakes you contemplate
the never ending sky
just a drop of rain to kill the pain
though it wont stop eye for eye
this kingdom shakes these systems break
and we're stuck in the middle

seventh son
you stand on the graves of these chosen ones
your mind it played tricks
so you blew it all away
seventh son
you wrestle with the future the damage is done
you cant escape
might as well have the time of your life

are you hypnotized
by the blood on the throne
is the spell that is binding
a word that everyone knows
cant seem to elevate
beyond these palace walls
the venomous bite
got you by the collar
you've gone the way of the wolf


her body sows her body reaps
her body tells your mind to speak
she's in the west she's in the east
she's the one that haunts your sleep
the moon is full she's in your soul
your mind is gone so let her fill your walls
these are her days mystery is in her cage
so set her free and welcome in the new age

encircled by snakes sinking in flaming lakes
watch the whole world pass you by
you come and go you take a dose
you still have questions why
this kingdom shakes these systems break
and we're stuck in the middle
Track Name: conqueror
were just skin and bones
sticks and stones on ruins
drifting all alone
are there other worlds
what did we land here for

is the portals gate
in the very lands we waste
are we on a meteor
heading to our doom

we're sailing away
or we're in the triangle hanging by a string
never will i care
the grim reaper wont pay my fair

oceans spill
into the sky
there is no hell
i got no alibis
outcast to every night
i'm outside of this human

calling my name
and the lights to blame
mastered the pain
it's been dark for days

we're just playing parts
a vast array of costumes
through our sacred arts
knowledge is the tool
used to build an empire

dancing on the screen
we're taught how to live and dream
risen from the ashes
they engineered our doom

were sailing away
we're on the titanic hanging by a string
i will not go down
the grim reaper aint coming around

calling my name
and the lights to blame
mastered the pain
it's been dark for days

like a conqueror
through the back door
got em on the floor
hear them beg some more
no enemies
dropping em like trees
everyday wake up
knowing what will be will be
breath fire
dragon eyes
i got the power inside
firepower


like a conqueror
breaking down the doors
got em on all fours
hear them crying lord
no stopping me
rivers down the street
knocked em off their feet
now they're laying underneath
breath fire
dragon eyes
i got the power inside
firepower
inside of me
Track Name: no medicine
the wind
is howling violent
there isn't a prayer
suicide to go out there
see the dead come to life again
the ancient curse revival
they'll wonder where did we go with

no medecine
were out of our minds
we cannot win
we're out of our minds
stranded again
we're out of our minds

is that what it takes to reach the end
guess we'll find out when we fall my friend

i'll go the distance to get there
climb mountains too high to climb
i'll give up my life to gain it
nothing can stop me from crossing the line
i'll fight forces of nature
i'll break patterns finite
i'll wage war on the war craft
nothing can stop me from opening my eyes
eyes open wide
i come alive

feel like you're falling in darkness
through the atmosphere of their lies
clinging to the shards of your life vest
drowning in the sea of goodbyes
born in a shallow grave
born in a time when no one stands up for anything
i'd rather die for freedom than be a slave
everyday it is the day of reckoning

the sun
is blood red in the distance
where the days go
doesn't make no difference to me
i'm devoted to the haze
i'm down to meet my maker
so are there any takers
wanna watch me go down with

no medicine
i'm out of my mind
i cannot win
i'm out of my mind
stranded again
i'm out of my mind


is that what it takes to reach the end
guess we'll find out when we fall my friend

i'll go the distance to get there
climb mountains too high to climb
i'll give up my life to gain it
nothing can stop me from crossing the line
i'll fight forces of nature
i'll break patterns finite
i'll wage war on the war craft
nothing can stop me from opening my eyes
eyes open wide
i come alive
Track Name: unchained
baby can you free me from my mind oh yah
it's my own worst enemy it's leaving me behind
i've tasted pure freedom though just a drop on my tongue
caught a glimpse into the future and im still chasing what once was

nowhere i run never can get to
stare at the sun the picture's blinding
out on a limb the branch is binding
it seems it's all game the game is cutthroat
im losing at cutthroat

im on the outside looking into
these black holes of my universe

i don't need anymore lightning my lips are pale
ive laid my money down with the gatekeeper
and now im burning alive got the fire in my eyes
forever fever dreaming in this cold cold night

wisdom grows deep in my wounds
drowning in moonlight i fall in the tomb
there is no direction home
home is the battlefield ive come to know

im on the outside looking into
these black holes of my universe

you know im never going to be a millionaire
there's more power in this crystal then in your dollar bill
blood diamond blood thirsty
it's in you it's in me
never coming down
ninth cloud never land
