Track Name: Ghost Of The Labyrinth
These Dark Sullen Eyes Peer Through The Gateway
And Reveal Life’s Internal Virtue
Now As We Wander Solemnly
An Absence Of Life Will Flood The Abyss

Corruption To Ensure Purity
Shadows That Conceal Many Secrets
A Building Anxiety Shattering Tranquility
Ignorant Of It’s Origins A Mind Spinning Relentlessly

Flames Stoked To Consume Atrocities That Blind Wisdom
Innocence Carried Away In The Darkness Of Temptation’s Wings
Images Of Life Crash Upon Shores Of Memory
Dormant Logic Imbalanced Somewhere In Time

And So It Came To Pass
The Wickedness Of Man
Our Burdens To The Earth
An Oath Of Reckless Burn

They Resurrect To Devour The Convulsing Scraps Of The Masses
The Ceaseless Hand Of The Universe Aligns With The Dreaded Insanity

Bear Witness To What Is, What Was, What Can Never Be

The Icy Grip That Entraps Virtue
Retribution A Deluded Fantasy
A Sanctuary Devoid Of Reason
Whispering Silence…
Track Name: Submerge
The Account Of One Will Inspire Many With A Relic Of A Bygone Age
Hooded Masses With Torches Lit An Ominous Glow Set Out Towards Perilous Sea
Beyond The Pillars Of Hercules, The Massive Cataclysm Detonates
Earthquakes And Flood Obliterate, Engulfing An Ancient Utopia

The Labyrinth Immortality Is Eroded By The Nectar Of Life
Abandoned By The Surface, This Prospect Of Time
Morbid Consent Of These Sickly Sentiments
The Haunting Memory Of A Distant Vanishing Light

They March Onward, Into The Halls Of Their Demise
A Cold Tomb Of Everlasting Embrace
The Slow And Methodical Departure Of An Overwhelming Wreckage
The Agonizing Anticipation For A Burial At Sea

Shrouded In Vivid Secrecy The Tremors Reverberate Endlessly
Convulsing Within The Foundation, The Walls Are Smothering Life
A Narrow Passageway Reveals A Mouth Opening To The Brine
Drowning A Boundless Society, The Haven Is Cloaked In Disguise

Submerged In Tides Of Repetition
Pushing Through The Leaden Waves
To The Surface, Gasping For Resolve
Awash On The Earth That Breathes

Entrails Left Behind In The Wake Of Poseidon’s Wrath
As We Helplessly Crash Into The Sea
Track Name: Sky Harvest
Awaiting In A Secret Chamber
Where Time And Space Are Mortal
Open The Surreal Prospect
To Sacrifice The Awareness And Senses

They Will Follow These Distant Forerunners
Who Advocate The Only Tangible Notion
Their Motility Burns Off The Layers
As They Take Us Away From Here

Torn From The Vital Fabric
Our Identities Given To The Ether
No Trail Left To Revise Our Steps
In A World That Does Not Exist

The Cry Of The Birds Pierce The Cynical Air
Claiming The Spirits Of Those Loved And Those Lost
Their Presence Is Forlorn And Ominous
As Our Vitality Is Accepted And Gone As Vapor

I Can Vaguely Recall Your Actions
And The Words You Used To Articulate
A Descendant From A Timeless Void
Uproot Rubble To Unearth Us And We Resurface

I Can Trace Your Name In The Air We Embrace
As We Tread Fragile Steps Through Constellations
Paint All My Thoughts And Revelations Onto The Canvas Of The Sky
But I Cannot See Your Face
