Track Name: Nothing But Ashes
A corrosion of soul
The casket that houses
How can you be trusted on the strength of a lie?
Under a rusting, withering satellite
That tears through the space between the skies
A force of wretched design

Your words are nothing but ashes
Dust in the wind
Forgotten again

Turbulent and sanctified
Ruinous and hated, your creation defiled
Nothing is sacred, infinite remains
As the arching colour moves you to a higher state and
Your words are nothing but ashes
Dust in the wind
Forgotten again

I fear I’ll be weak forever
Lost in the ending
With this terrible burden
I fear I’ll be weak forever
Lost in the ending
With this terrible burden

Turbulent and sanctified
Ruinous and hated, your creation defiled
Nothing is sacred, infinite remains
As the arching colour moves you to a higher state and
Your words are nothing but ashes
Dust in the wind
Forgotten again
Your words are nothing but ashes
Dust in the wind
Forgotten again

Spitting venom in the face of existence
I’ve never wondered why I felt this way
This world was doomed from the start
Imbued with my hatred, I devour the heart
I do not seek the light, I will not fight your war

I will not fight your war

We’re at the mercy of time
And Trapped between the waves of despondency
It will become so clear to you
That you’re watching the end of everything you know

Nothing's ever built to last
Everything you know must come to pass
Nothing's ever built to last

Nothing’s ever built to last
And everything you know must come to pass
'Cos in the end all things must grind to dust
But the virus and bloodlust will never be sated
Until the world consumes this fucking wreckage

You fucking wreckage
Track Name: Eternity
Unending pressure
Forcing its way through the outer shell of my mind
Keeping me awake through the raging storms of our time
But the truth is that we’re all alone
You can choose to fight but there will be no-one on your side

Rise above the ruins
And witness the end of eternity
As it stirs beneath the ground under your feet
Unchain the wrath forsaken
Endlessly turning the wheels of destruction

And into the unknown
Memory is just a fading grasp at hope
For the ones we called home
Will I ever be returned to what I know?

Held up by failing wings
Controlled by silent kings
You’re just a puppet and a waste of potential
I’m here to draw the line
No longer haunts my mind
Will I ever be returned to what I know?

It’s far too late
Too dark to see any way to escape
Yet here we remain
Tied down to the earth, a slave till the end

Unending pressure
Forcing its way through the outer shell of my mind
Keeping me awake through the raging storms of our time
But the truth is that we’re on our own
You can choose to fight but there will be no-one on your side

Heed the call
To wipe away the burden on your soul
Feel the cleansing flame
Consume the dark that plagues us all

It’s far too late
Too dark to see any way to escape
Yet here we remain
Tied down to the earth, a slave till the end
And into the unknown
Memory is just a fading grasp at hope
For the ones we called home
Will I ever be returned to what I know?

Your hypocrisy will be the death of me
Holding onto bitterness will be my soul's eclipse

Eclipse
Track Name: Home
Follow the water as it drains to the sea
A fragile memory of what could have been

So feel the light on your skin
And let your life begin
But recognise that nothing lasts forever

Don’t be afraid any longer
You know the darkness must give way to light
And as the night marches onwards
Whatever happens it will be alright

Open your mind
See that you don’t have to be a slave
You can live for yourself
And you can live for the day

This is the world we call our home
I won’t stand to watch it burn before our purpose is done

Don’t be afraid any longer
You know the darkness must give way to light
And as the night marches onwards
Whatever happens it will be alright

You know the darkness must give way to light
Whatever happens it will be alright

Mesmerised by the hand that feeds
Take control of yourself and realise that nothing comes for free

Don’t be afraid any longer
You know the darkness must give way to light

Don’t be afraid any longer
You know the darkness must give way to light
And as the night marches onwards
Whatever happens it will be alright

Don’t be afraid any longer
You know the darkness must give way to light
And as the night marches onwards
Whatever happens we will be alright

Whatever happens we will be alright

Whatever happens we will be alright
