Track Name: Don't Try
Solo: Nate

Rev the fuck up and tear out your claws
No class and no honor consumed
Bail on your life and your spiritual rides
Trip on your death absolute

There are no more walls and nothing is real
Lost on the concept of “now”
Mysteries grasp and the leash of the past
Has turned the heart upside down

A symphony of liquor that makes us cry
Alone unashamed I’m down for the ride
Don’t try

Hide in plain sight - Don’t chose a side
Blow out your mind in disgust
Unleash your fists - Born into piss
Focus the soul to death lost

Fuck all the thrones - Kill all the clones
I don’t need hope or your trust
Come alive now - Break from the drown
Ignore me my name is unjust

A symphony of liquor that makes us cry
Alone unashamed I’m down for the ride
Be a no one with atomic eyes
Alone unashamed I’m down for the ride
Don’t try

Solo: Carl
Solo: Nate
Track Name: Fever
Clawed fist hammering down
Pinning your face to the floor
Tasting soil - Poisonous air
Blood and spirit frozen cold
Reviled - Cloaked by the night
The aggressors begin their ill deeds
Waiting for the final act
A faceless choir of hallowed screams

The damned continue their work
Your pleas unanswered all the while
Shadows - Growing longer
A fever of hell takes your mind

The cold stone altar awaits
Limbs pierced - Severed clean
Lifesblood - Flowing away
Death remains to be seen
The damned continue their work
Your pleas unanswered all the while
Shadows - Growing longer
A fever of hell takes your mind

Solo: Nate
Solo: Carl
Track Name: Chains
I’ve known you all before
Somehow you’re far behind
Life’s not so heavy, boy
I can read your fucking mind

Solo: Nate

Slave yourself down my friend
While I cut the chains
Addictions to connections
Taunted to insane

Solo: Nate

I’ve known you all before
Somehow you’re far behind
Life’s not so heavy, boy
I can read your fucking mind
Track Name: Empty Roads Eternal
Weary and scarred, left no conscience
Footsteps go forth through black night
Safety abandoned, long since this stand
No comforts or comrades

Empty roads eternal lay before view
Ghosts of enemies line each side
Sanity - Frayed and diminished
Pushing on!

Existence defined by pain accepted
Ignorant will, point of pride
Singular focus to the outside
Pushing on!

Steady hand
Clear mind
Determination - Self realization
Path given light by my climb
Steady hand
Clear mind
Determination - Self realization
Derided - Still I climb

Empty roads eternal lay before view
Ghosts of enemies line each side
Sanity - Frayed and diminished
Pushing on!

Existence defined by pain accepted
Ignorant will, point of pride
Singular focus to the outside
Pushing on!

Steady hand
Clear mind
Determination - Self realization
Path given light by my climb
Steady hand
Clear mind
Determination - Self realization
Derided - Still I climb
Track Name: Hand In Death
Wielding blood and fire from both hands
Digging through the ether soul conjuring - Psychologies
I’ll wrap myself in a nightmare haze
To see a sight that can’t be found - Throne of disguise

Ancestors laugh at your path
The holy truth fucked in the ass
The dust settles, we know who’s right
No heaven or hell, only insight

Opinions of snakes what you seek
Your luster of power is weak
Absolute and total hollowness
I offer you all death

Solo: Nate

Into the woodwork away from you
Your skin is clear, you wore it out - Priest of the false
You gave it life but it will be choked
Bitten, self-obsessed and insecure - Your fault

Ancestors laugh at your path
The holy truth fucked in the ass
The dust settles, we know who’s right
No heaven or hell, only insight

Opinions of snakes what you seek
Your luster of power is weak
Absolute and total hollowness
I offer you all death
Track Name: Hoof Of The Rift
Ignite all of the abuse
Spread the legs of the trip
Sliding down death’s tongue
Swallowed thoughts exposed

Pray
Pray - Sex - Fear - Lies

Solo: Carl

Breathing leaves bloody eyes, the shine
Take the drugs cuz they take no sides
Track Name: Oath
The road is calling to lead us away
Hungry for spoils of this life
Rock ’n’ roll, whiskey and beer
Standing tall - Kings - We ride

Smoke and leather - The smell of exhaust
Steel box, scarred - Carries its pride
Electric church is the only belief
In riff we trust, forever - All time

Turn Up
Drink Up
Raise your fist
This oath you must bind

Claiming our domain, defending our stake
Sacrifice - We sweat for tradition
Rabid with lust - Stone deaf forever
In riff we trust, forever - All time

Turn Up
Drink Up
Raise your fist
This oath you must bind

Solo: Josh

Turn Up
Drink Up
Raise your fist
This oath you must bind
Track Name: Black Glow
I dunno how deep I’ll go
I can’t say how long I’d stay
But I can’t find another way
To touch the teeth of death

My black glow inside
It lives my life

In the black side of the cave
A lethal calm sucks through my face
Sun to moon - I ask the self
What is need and what’s ritual

I dunno how deep I’ll go
I can’t say how long I’d stay
But I can’t find another way
To touch the teeth of death

My black glow inside
It lives my life

Solo: Nate
