It's been many years since I got to see the sun Locked away in my cell, I forgot who I once was Memories of my reflections fade before my blinded eyes But not the blood on my hands from that fateful full moon night Have you come to see my fangs Have you come to see my claws Have you ever seen a lycanthrope Stand back and watch in horror I will tear you limb from limb Then I will devour you whole Watch me loose these silver chains And shrug off this cursed cell One day I'll break loose from these chains And you will all pay For the decimation of my tribe, you will die They'll never find your remains in this unmarked grave Many years have passed since that fateful night you killed my kin Hundreds of you surrounded us with hate and fear in your eyes That's when you cornered me and I said to you all Have you come to see my fangs Have you come to see my claws Have you ever seen a lycanthrope Stand back and watch in horror I will tear you limb from limb Then I will devour you whole Watch me loose these silver chains And shrug off this cursed cell Break the chains and commence to slaughtering And the blood will stain the walls By my hands you all will fall I'll claim my vengeance With my aggression and bloodlust Have you come to see the end

Rise 03:53
I come through the gates of Hell, of which is my domain To conquer and bring pain on all those you hold dear Can you feel the vile in my hallowed veins All I want in this sinful life is to bring you pain Stop screaming, your blood tastes better in silence I will rise to take what is mine I'll ravage through your flesh, tearing apart all your remains You have been marked unholy, your prayers cannot save you now I have tasted your hatred and your lives taste so sweet Now that I'm through with you, I grant you death's sweet release Stop screaming, your blood tastes better in silence I will rise to take what is mine Stop screaming, your blood tastes better in silence I will rise to take what is mine I have risen to eclipse the horizon What Hell looks like is no longer a mystery, you'll see Bloodshed and agony calls forth from me You were all meant to die, your souls are now mine Stop screaming, your blood tastes better in silence I will rise to take what is mine Stop screaming, your blood tastes better in silence I will rise to take what is mine Stop screaming, your blood tastes better in silence I will rise to take what is mine

Drift through the darkness of space Wandering from place to place Many trials have we passed along the way Always have we won the day Crystal pyramid turns red and warns us of the news that these fair Planetfolk have been crushed and they require aid to save them Who will bend an ear to their cries filled as they are with anguish We the merry band will heed their call We have arrived to this unknown place At first glance it looks reduced to waste A ghostly frigate divides the mist Slow on approach, it does not list The game played, our souls have they won Our fate, to perish in the dearth of the sun The goose is loosed, the missile is fired A pallid death and a cloak turned to pyre The spear is thrust, the warrior in flight To claim the deck and return to light The skirmish ended, unwritten law Stake my claim and take five draws My mind opened, I face my death Expelled by issuance of my breath Parchment, trumpet, and enmity Restructured reality Deck changed to the thin of the air Still no closer to neverwhere The light has returned, an ocean to cross A message delivered by albatross The dictator, standing unamused The dictator, by the noise abused Sea turns to coast, the waves break over the sand We have arrived at the end of the land A jungle before us, the ocean behind Over the mountains, the city we'll find

Pharisee 03:34
Wag your tongue, smog-choked lungs They called you brave, foot in the grave They never knew the real you Your storied grace was just a face They praised your name—this, your shame A house of cards will fall so hard Portray for these: Socrates You thought them cruel—you were the fool The tales you told, the men you'd scold The lash you'd give, the lie you lived I am you, you are me Pharisee Walk with me (Pharisee) Talk with me (Pharisee) Hypocrite (Pharisee) Travesty (Pharisee) Putrid heart (Pharisee) Liar's art (Pharisee) Lust and pride (Pharisee) Homicide (Pharisee) They shook your hand, house on sand You walked so high, built on lies Teachers laud, deeply flawed Peers showed ire, your mouth spit fire They never guessed, just like the rest Hid in plain sight, put up the fight In light you'd bask behind the mask Life was fake, you twisted snake The tales you told, the men you'd scold The lash you'd give, the lie you lived The masses stirred, their acts demurred The cohort cried, it stoked your pride The hands you'd strike, head on a spike How tall the tale, beyond the pale I am you, you are me Pharisee Flesh smells ghastly as it burns Far too proud to ever learn Always holier than thou Whose foot is the shoe on now Statements uttered, fragrant lies Why so quick to crucify What'd you ever hope to gain Your achievements, down the drain Gained the whole then lost it all Cursed with an eternal fall Boiling blood and skin of ash Payment due for your abash Witness torment that you cause Meditate and give you pause Vitrified integument Lest you at no time repent
