Track Name: Abandoned Forgotten
Hell blessed our sacred winter
All life to be exterminated
We ride on wings of ancient ages
Controlling destiny

One reason to continue
Destroy or be destroyed

Abandoned, forgotten
Lost souls trapped in agony
We ride on wings of ancient ages
We ride for we are free

Blind faith decides our answers
I know who comes for me
I won't be taken easily
I will fucking burn the sea

Abandoned, forgotten
Lost souls trapped in agony
We ride on wings of ancient ages
We ride for we are free

Destroy or be destroyed

I render myself faithless
We render ourselves free
You've left yourselves defenseless
It's time for conquering

Abandoned, forgotten
Lost souls trapped in agony
We ride on wings of ancient ages
Controlling destiny
Track Name: Deathtiny
It never seems to get better no matter how hard I try
I am a cancer on everyone in my life
In all the people I loved and tried to save
I need to die

This chilling cold that fills my soul
It just won’t let me go
I can’t explain why I remain in darkness
While you bask in light of the sun
I’ll never see I’ll never see
The light that you claim to be

No way to adapt to what peers cannot accept
Impossible not to notice impossible difference
Bleed the same, die the same
Ash to ash dust to dust
Trust what you must

Dark clouds
Black holes
Everything I’ve ever known
Endless emptiness is everywhere

They never seem to unravel
These mysteries of life
All the roads I have traveled
Yet all I feel is strife
Track Name: Perpetual Winter
We arrived at the cemetery
We opened the gates
The headstones were overturned
The corpses had been maimed

Perpetual winter, perpetual hell
All the same to oneself
When you lie awake in bed every night
Contemplating your life

No rest for the undead
No regard for the dead
No mercy will be shown
No life will be spared

Perpetual winter, perpetual hell
All the same to oneself
When you lie awake in bed every night
Contemplating your life
Track Name: Open Seas
The waves crash against the hull
Like my heartbeat raps against my soul
It’s a nightmare for all who choose this road
But we’ve been there, know just what to know
No pain no fear no obstacle too severe
We live to die, In the end it’s all sacrifice

Life, open seas new opportunities
New destiny for me and my family
Fuck consequence we have no fear of death

No sense in defenseless moral
Pain precedes gain
Icons of your precious protectors
Shoved into your brain
No pain no fear no obstacle too severe
We live to die, In the end it’s all sacrifice

Stabbing you with your stupid fucking statues
Bloody gold dripping red from your head
Track Name: And Will Be back
We felt the cold come from the north
Yet we pushed back through the forth
Til all we had was half of half
Visions predicted aftermath
Blood for blood

We warned you we’d be coming back again
As promised we are here and back again
Back to take your bloody life
Just as you like

Wrong or right
Perspective based on fractured light
A prism paranoid delight
Full spectrum lies ingested
No need to try

We warned you we’d be coming back again
As promised we are here and back again
Back to take your bloody life
Just as you like
Track Name: Somber
My truth is a lie
I see through blinded eye
My tears are all too cold for anyone to deny
The sky turns to grey
Then it fades to Black
My soul starts to feel like it’s having a heart attack

Old school philosophies
Follow me nonexistent ones
Fellows of the unforsaken
Unleash your guns
Fire into the sky
Bringing down the gods
You’ll never understand
Anger Somber

Don’t ask me why I always want to die
I hate to feel
Hate to be alive
Hurting all the time
Sorrow in my soul
Hate and fucking pain takes its fucking toll

Faulty information
Twisted visions
Non-relation
Epic sagas of insanity

Sand turns to stone
Stone back to sand
Excruciating reductions as the universe expands
Timeless untimely time
Unravel what’s in your mind
Let the inquisitors find exactly what they find
