Track Name: Where They're From
Breadth, of their souls
With others seem alone
They're the target, symbol is down
Led home, the lay path
Laid some dead down

Don't let go
Labours/lay here
Death and slow rot
Death/slow rot
Drips of slow sun
Demons shall fly
To far away

Where they're from
You should all know
Giant's tail readying now
Jackdaw will sound it I'm sure
Return, before burning on its own
Return written text, written on seeds, return

Leave our lives here
Leave possessions
Leave our fifedoms
Leave possessions
World lays drawn

Red sun burning in session
With raw inflammation
Witness empty mass
Black skies and air here that scars
Back to oblivion
Religion's sign is now gone
Roll out the starving addiction

Oblivion's here
With no
Words against them
No possession x2
Return x3

Return under the storms
Before eternal decay
We turn under direction relayed
Return now decay
Return decay
Track Name: The Fish Have Teeth
Riptides, spell return
Let them return to yellow earth
Let those souls burst red, yellow earth
Amongst the soothing ocean of night
Won't know they'll die
Restless souls return to the ocean of night

Reveal teeth
The fish have teeth
Endless rows
Fibrous guts
Horns that breathe and glow
The fish have teeth and ravenous claws
And fire below
(they say) Belial

The fish have teeth x3
We all know
Never know
We all know
Religion will
We'll never have enough
Rain rips down alone

This is it, new tensions here
Let your soul emerge, then die
The fish have teeth x5
Belial x3
Track Name: In The Dark They Thought
They knew
Time grew foul
There, in the dark they thought of
Without hope
Diseases' hold
Thought of nothing
Their daily hope
Formed of nothing
Thought escape impossible
They thought of nothing

In the dark they thought
Of nothing
With minds and hearts alive
We lay in dreams of hope
A world fettered in faith
Rinsed in shadows without tearing ice
No thought of religion or saviour here

They thought of nothing
In the dark they thought
Of nothing
Dreams come through now
To the ones who make sail
What have we done?
They throw up curses
To the lack of light
Lack of light

In the dark they thought
Day might come
To ease
Their souls
Eyes are streamed with mould
They took all
Grand sum of nothing
No hope, no fear x3
Dagger's conceit x2

The ball of light x4
Track Name: Of The Stone Goddess
And so, there leaks release
Red sun it's angle returns

Stone Goddess x3

Told, fighting on
The torments and the flow
Nightshades performing sins R'lyeh
Creatures carved out of rock
Nightshade is plotting
With closed eyes

Staring out across the land
Red knight
Pincers walking in the steps of gods
Pincers walking stone will
Pincers let go and die

This is been your world
This is in real time
It must be our fate
Companies in tooth
Skin of enemy
None of enemies in time
Flagellate in tombs
Brothers of death

Wheezing in boots of lead
Fixed to the spot again below

Marching in time
Leave home
Marching in time, for home
Marching in time, for home
Marching in time, for a longer way
Marching in time, way home
Marching a beaten way
Many foes, lay run over, in ground

They don't sell
Pennies in soil
One of us ready to say
In bitter words, infest the lance
Religion is not dead
The turbulent foes, believe our words
Infest the land
All are dead
And dead over

and time
flown in bitter words.
