Track Name: Echo Of The Unseen
The life unfolds inside a warming world
I hear your pulse, the sound of my securing home
I am floating in this silent space
At once, I sense your arising unrest
Racing heart
Invading dark

Breathing in the water, drowning in the air
A place of raining ashes encircling the frail
Remaining an echo of a scream
Longing for the unseen

The rifts leaving marks, burning into the skin
The created loss is winding its way within
Cutting deep the vulnerable
Never meant to heal

The horizon reveals a blazing light
Rays of the rising sun awakening the eyes
Unveiling a world that is inimical to life

I feel the warmth, it goes away
I felt the warmth, it went away
Track Name: Hail The King
Come down to paradise
Come down and praise
Get down to paralyze
Get down and praise
Go!

A king in a shiny robe
Is reflecting a shallow glow
The eyes are stamped in gold
The nails sprout into climbing plants

A desert of grainy blood
Is serving the greedy flood
The dance of prosthetic souls
Condenses with the burning hopes

We believe in...

So come with me, feel the ease of the careless
Seize all with me, there's no need to look back
So come with me, feel the ease of the ruthless
Seize all with me, there's no need to look back

A conductor in reptile skin
The spine cloned with filaments
A sewing box lies in his hands
A bow gilds the servants mouth

A desert of grainy blood
Is serving the greedy flood
The dance of prosthetic souls
Condenses with the burning hopes

Create, exploit, erase, next one
Trash is needed for treasure
Produce, abuse, destroy, next one
Dirt is needed for pleasure

There's no fucking need,
There's no need to look back

So come with me, feel the ease of the careless
Seize all with me, there's no need to look back
So come with me, feel the ease of the ruthless
Seize all with me, there's no need to look back
Seize all with me, or be seized
Seize all with me, enjoy the feast
Seize all with me, or be seized
Seize all with me, enjoy the feast
Track Name: Legion
Time to harvest
We can smell you
This scent
Time to harvest
The fruit is ripe
There you are

What was washed on the shore today?
The forgotten fruit, the gone astray
You absconded to the brink of life, outside of norms, but you have survived
A deviation is rather rare, a salient trait, we are aware
Eyes wide and without a veil
Could you grasp our opus in all detail?
There is a way out of the misery, be a step ahead, drain the false regret
Your kind is a minor tribe
Are you wise enough to join our side?
Let the secret in your blood revolve, be our neophyte, dare to evolve
Let our thoughts intertwine, sever your roots, leave all behind

Without us, there's no sense, there's no clarity
Someone had to define a new hierarchy
Now it is your call to shake the hand that holds the reins
If you reject this gift, just bear in mind, you cannot stop this

Without us, we would not live in sanity
Someone has to refine this ideology
Now it is your turn to take the hand that holds the reins
If you oppose our will, be sure, we'll never stop!

We will never stop

Now it's time to say - Will you laud our name?
What is your price? We pay - Freedom, safety, fame?
Or be one of the prey - An offering for the flame
We don't accept a nay

Come Accede
Or your path is dire - We adorn with striae
We turn bones to powder - To build up our dream
We sow to reap and devour - No sweet without the sour
You decide your fate!

I see a swarm of hollow eyes
Fingers wind around my spine
I was searching for the unknown
Now I'm on the ledge
In the deep, I view the darkened sea
And feel the noise raining down on me

You want to know our name?
Legion
Track Name: Aphelion
I'm not one of you
No

Reared in darkness
Enclosed with fences
A vastness overflowed with cages
Existing on invisible pages
From the second of my birth
Injected fear poured through my stream
My first awakening on earth
Started with an endless scream

Each afterglow widens my view
Unravels the nexus
Each afterglow widens my view
A bitter taste unfurls

In the eye of a hurricane
I linger in the last windless moments
Feel a tremble in my veins
A part of the untold fragments
Your burned down hearts, your venomed minds
Building an empire that ravens the life
The menace to reverse the side
Intensifies my clearing sight

Each afterglow widens my view
A bitter taste unfurls

I'm not one of you
Hear the silent screams
You want me to burn
Fuel your dire dreams
Sun seems out of reach
I can hardly breathe
Waves of deep blue sea
Collide above me

The undertow will tear me to the abyss
Where light was never seen
The deathblow is waiting for me
Where light was never ever seen

I am one of the ghosts
Our light is unseen our voice is unheard

I'm not one of you
Hear the silent screams
You want me to burn
Fuel your dire dreams
Sun seems out of reach
I can hardly breathe
Waves of deep blue sea
Collide above me
Track Name: I Walk In The Flames
Captured in the vortex
Reviving my eyes
A fragment falls into a standstill
My thoughts darkening the sky
I walk in the flames
Facing the demon, reaching for my hands
This part of me should never, never, never come to light
It's the end of innocence
But there is no other way in sight

The flood of burning ash
Infests my core
Darkens my veins
While the demon soars
I can feel it underneath
The rifts evolve
And slowly
My hurt turns into strength

Riven as a creature
Transcending the edge
Alive in fire, waiting for the blast
Circling above you like a crow
Until you surrender your vicious crown
The tide is turning
You are the next in line

The flood of burning ash
Infests my core
Darkens my veins
While the demon soars
I can feel it underneath
The rifts evolve
And after all
My hurt turns into hate

Your presence casts a shade
Holding a shiver of the crown
But I exhaled the fear
Now I inhale the fire

You are the next in line

Silencing the living
Burning the air around
But we all breathe
Your ears ignore the sound

I will not follow your lethal paths
I want you to taste the aftermath

You are the next in line
Track Name: Written In Stains
Blackness flooding the room
My wrath awaits your skin
Mercy left my hands, to reveal the shrouded truth within
Your flesh ruptured by the cord, eyes jaded like the heart beneath
A shard of atrocity, dethroned and brought to its knees
Just one part of many, as the first step to take
A wall of apathy, which I am willing to break

What's buried
Underneath

Behind a veil of red, the lost will be found
A shifting paradigm, written in stains on the ground
Tear open your eyes and feel your own descent
Taste all you've inflicted, until you repent

How can you be so dead inside?
Is there nothing you can feel?
Distortion is all you've left behind
How can you be so dead of mind?
Some are never meant to heal
The screams of the fading lights
Your guilt I will reveal

In this blackened void
There were two paths to take
Guided by your true essence
Deciding the end
Still I'm searching for your insight
But breathe your insensitivity
In your state of mind
The echoes would never fade away
Cause now I know
You are blind
And you won't see

No!
I'm searching for anything than nothing, come on
So frustrating, intoxicating
What are you?
This is killing me
This is killing you
In shattered silence
Written in stains
Track Name: The Waves Of The Ocean Are Gone
You fear the drops
Running down my hands
Even if I've done this
To unlock your cage
The widened eyes mirror shed blood
They see I left this place dead and alive

One day, the hate inside started to breathe
Erased the fear that was hiding beneath

You gaze at me
Like the waves of the ocean are gone
But in this reflection
I sense the return of warmth

One day, the hate inside started to breathe
Erased the fear that was hiding beneath
I abandoned the light and turned to a shadow
But it's time to rewrite my echo
Track Name: The Eyes Of The Wolves Awake
I will keep my eyes on you
We will keep our eyes on you

Is there nothing left to see?
Are we the blind?
Well my eyes say
No!
You are one of a myriad
Severed from the warmth
Wither in the dark
The deadness is hailing down
Runs into your lungs
Were you born to drown?
No!
Let the eyes of the wolves awake
Hear your whispering voice
Blazing up to a shout

Follow me here
Nothing, nothing grows in fear
Running into this old knife
I won't, I won't hide

We are here so where are you

Is there nothing left to say?
Are we the hunted?
Are we the prey?
No!
Let's return to the genesis
To reset the time
For all unborn eyes
We are not in this world for war
But they call for blood
Will it make us bow?
No!
We're the pulse of the nemesis
It's the start of the end
We will never give up

Follow me here
Nothing, nothing grows in fear
Running into this old knife
I won't, I won't hide

We are here so where are you

Follow me here
Nothing, nothing grows in fear
Running into this old knife
I won't, I won't hide

A sea of flames ignites
Standing in the rain
Of glowing embers
Track Name: The Dust I Breathe
Lying on the ground
Your shadow tries to veil the light
Cold blood fills up my mouth
Runs through the streets
To light and color them with life
And blends with drops of dire skies

The dust I breathe
The dirt I taste
Can't break my fighters face
Your blade is haunting all my pain
The only thing I feel is rain

Your ghost is gone
And you won't steal mine
Decay is living in your gaze
I'm feeling free
No wound, no scar won't close my eyes
Creates and heals my inner skies

You've lost your end
No turning back

I set your will on fire

The dust I breathe
The dirt I taste
Can't break my fighters face
Your blade is haunting all my pain
The only thing I feel is rain
Track Name: Reviving The Ground
Feeling the pulse
Of a tremor in the ground
I stand in the heart of a dawn to come
An innate promise
Forged by fire
Is the roar
Of a fate rewritten
The never ending circle is enclosed
By our relentless will
Healing the rifts
Scars of the past

Drawn by a storm
Facing the blight
Our path leads on
We gain momentum within every stride
In this final stand
My last wrath dissolves
Remaining seconds fade away
Fade away

And we grow
Tic, tic, tic, tic, toc

A revolving world
Tasted the spark
Of tranquility consuming the chaos
Like a tidal wave
Purifying the ashes
And reviving
This crimson ground

Hard Break Part
Drawn by a storm
Facing the blight
Our path leads on
We gain momentum within every stride
In this final stand
My last wrath dissolves
Remaining seconds fade away
Fade away

We're here to find a way to breathe
To breathe, to breathe out the demons
And if we all go down
There is nothing left of your crown

The dream passed on

Interlude Break
We have tasted the spark
A flash before my eye
Will not bring us down
As long as we breathe we will fight
I can feel my dusk and my fate gets clear
The ocean is a hydra
And this wave will bring me home

We're here to find a way to breathe
To breathe, to breathe out the demons
And if we all go down
There is nothing left of your crown
Track Name: Perihelion
Sand shining like gold,
a shimmering sea
Everything is illuminated
and the tables are empty

The circle has revolved,
all upside down
The ground under the feet
and the sirens are quiet

I'm floating through my shell, through my skin, through my face
I'm loosing gravity,
but there are no tears

We've lost a lot,
but gained so much more
No one will be forgotten
and I dream of infinity

An old friend strokes my shoulder,
with a smile on his face,
he says 'it was worth it'
I hope he is right

All the ghosts in my head, made me blur, nearly dead
The demon is gone,
now my eyes are clear


I was taken by the wind
Beneath the silence I still hear the wolves sing
The new scent spreads
Sere earth starts to breathe
And severed roots grow back into the deep
Dissolved and whole, my feral eyes still gleam
They let the rain in
To drown your dire dreams


If you want to see me dead
It`s much too late
I'm way beyond that

If you want to see me dead
It`s much too late
I am the outgrown sentiment that you always feared

You can never destroy me
You can never destroy us
