Track Name: We Ride
We Ride


They struggled to become, in their years of bloody past
left to roam in their sorrow and to die at last
they found brotherhood among the others of their kind
With their swords held high towards the starlit sky


Filth cascaded
Spirit Degraded
Ride until we reach
The edge of the earth
(hey)
No one will know our name
We are shrouded in mystery
In darkness, we are free
hounds of the night


Dangerous, the open chasm swallows us whole
A void forever inescapable


They tried to destroy us
We are strong, they will not break us
Enslaved captives no longer
We are free, The night is our master
Nothing will ever stop us
Orion will protect us
Fearless, Endlessly
We Ride into the night
We Ride


The stars will be our guide, and our fate left to decide
whether we are worthy to return to our lives
We yearn for the of the hunt, we live for the kill
The fight for survival is our broken will


Filth cascaded
Spirit Degraded
Ride until we reach
The edge of the earth
(hey)
No one will know our name
We are shrouded in mystery
In darkness, we are free
hounds of the night


Sucked into the crushing grip of twilight’s cold embrace
Death comes creeping down




They tried to destroy us
We are strong, they will not break us
Enslaved captives no longer
We are free, The night is our master
Nothing will ever stop us
Orion will protect us
Fearless, Endlessly
We Ride into the night
We Ride


Fearless, Relentless
We Ride
Track Name: Through The Dark
Thru The Dark I Have Strength


Our story begins on a cold bitter night
In the midst of the Mid-winters frost
The time has come for all who are damned
The sacrifice begins at dusk


They draw from the absence of light in this world
Their power grows infinite
A living being, a human heart beating
Will signal the demon to show his face


Rise from the depths destroyer
Teach them their wrongful ways
Drown the world in fire
Slay those who’ve slain


Transference
To the other side
Take control, cleanse my body
for your mortal genocide


Bring down the earth Into the pyre
and cleanse the doers of their sins
Let me listen to screams, of the guilty
Give me your strength to uphold


Shadow king, great destroyer
Punish them in flame
May Darkness reign over the sky
Bring the acid rain
Retributions Law enforced
Side by side we will stand tall
Under you, I shall cry
Thru the dark, I have strength


The weak burst into flame
On this final judgement day
Conjured with malcontent
Annihilation imminent
Forsake those who've forsaken thee
Take their souls and set them free
Demonize and disconnect
Suffer


Thru the Dark I have strength
Track Name: The Tongue Is A Curse
The Tongue Is a Curse


Diluted mass of evil
Has taken its form
Mass persecution
Turn innocent forlorn
Burned at the stake
For crimes of the obscene
Plagued by a curse
That only they could see


Declared corrupted by a god
Sentenced to death by his seed
Misfits set ablaze
Their souls forever in a haze


Lied for revenge
Lied out of fear
Accusations
No gavel to adhere
Word spread fast
No truth passed
Did you hear?
Did you see?
The tongue
Is a curse


Spitting razor blades
that lacerate the heart
Using voice as a weapon
To tear their souls apart
The internal serpent
Let out of its cage
To roam free and litigate
The uncontrollable rage


Witches possessed by the dark
Demons, hidden among the pack
Forced into a world of hate
Where the ignorant take control


Lied for revenge
Lied out of fear
Accusations
No gavel to adhere
Word spread fast
No truth passed
Did you hear?
Did you see?
The tongue
Is a curse


Screams of the dying, flow into the sky
Surrounded by family, that now want you to die
Track Name: Opacia
Opacia




Ancient cities, reduced to ash
Nowhere to run as the forces clash
Come fire, come flood, come molten decree
Come Pumiceous clouds of misery


Destruction described on the Nuclear scale
Brung two days of darkness that none can compare
A once thriving nation, brought to its knees
Buried, forgotten, never to be seen


Thousands of people, frozen in time
Bodies discovered in the image they’d died
Women and children, all put to rest
The demon unleashed now has no regret


Silence is deafening
Screams of lost tortured souls
No need to run in fear
It will be all over soon




Opacia
Born In the shadow of fate
built atop the decay of Titus’s sorrow
Opacia
reborn from the once divine
The second coming of what once was




Pure terror grips
Their minds at the sight of the clouds, so black
The poisonous fumes, they flow


The Gods have decided, all must die
Send the ashes, pollute the sky
Invade their lives with a fiery fate
Wipe out our mistake, and Force them to change


They moved to a new land, started life fresh
With the thought in their minds of their loved ones seared flesh
Rebuild bigger than ever before
They will be stronger, cowards no more




Breeding A new life
from the shadow of tragedy
Like a pheonix
Rising from the ash
The fire in their hearts
Will burn forever
Their path
Never onstructed




Opacia
Born In the shadow of fate
built atop the decay of Titus’s sorrow
Opacia
reborn from the once divine
The second coming of what once was

Opacia
Born In the shadow of fate
built atop the decay of Titus’s sorrow
Opacia
reborn from the once divine
The second coming of what once was
Track Name: The Sixth Extinction
The Sixth Extinction


The earth begins to crumble
Mountains shake
The stars begin to fall from the sky
The dawn of a new time


Hell will cover the earth in eternal flame
The nightmare unfolding will end the emperor's reign
End the emperor's reign


We destroy ourselves, piece by piece
Oblivious to our disease
Open your eyes and see
The sixth extinction calls for thee
One by one, falling down
Into the abyss we drown
Rise up and take control
The sixth extinction beckons to all


Green turns to black
The seas red with blood
Humanity gripped by the hand of fear
The calming embrace of death


All will come to an end in a sudden flash
Everything we’ve accomplished, mankind reduced to ash
Reduced to ash


We destroy ourselves, piece by piece
Oblivious to our disease
Open your eyes and see
The sixth extinction calls for thee
One by one, falling down
Into the abyss we drown
Rise up and take control
The sixth extinction beckons to all


Our utopia has fallen
Self destroyed
Giving us all we need to survive
Ignorance glorified


Selfish, we’ve lost our home
Mass annihilation long overdue
long overdue


We destroy ourselves, piece by piece
Oblivious to our disease
Open your eyes and see
The sixth extinction calls for thee
One by one, falling down
Into the abyss we drown
Rise up and take control
The sixth extinction beckons to all
Track Name: Heathen
Heathen




As the blood moon rises
The beast begin to prowl
As a hunter I must follow
my one true call
To end this blight
To end this everlasting night
I must take to the streets
And patrol, for the time is nigh



Bless us with blood and
Prey for a good hunt
Hang your lanterns
To keep the heathens at bay tonight



As the moon grows they get stronger
The unborn one’s their true master
The vacuous one protects him
He keeps the dwelling locked up tight
My fellow hunters begin to turn now
They’ve become infected by this blight
They’ve turned against us, against the church
The heathens, all must die




The night calls for bloodshed
The people call for pain
I will return with my trophies
the heads of whom I’ve slain
The bringer of sorrow
Will cleanse us, this night
The heathens will be tortured
Strangled and slain

Bless us with blood
Prey for a good hunt
For the beasts, they will dine
On our fair city tonight
As the moon grows they get stronger
The unborn one’s their true master
The vacuous one protects him
He keeps the dwelling locked up tight
My fellow hunters begin to turn now
They’ve become infected by this blight
They’ve turned against us, against the church
The heathens, all must die
