Tall mountain stabbing sky Lightning crack we’ve yet to change Beast above keep them far Below our black cave home they cannot . . . Steel ourselves dawn will break Thunder shook the fires down Madness then, courage all From everywhere we are as one The more we live The more we are free The more we are free What we know they can’t take What we know We are all kings Creatures watch, creatures love We all bleed the same blood If we fall those below Will cry for the space in their wicked . . .
Turned away and set before gates of white bone You journeyed deep into the void of the unbound You wield the strength you’ve always known When they take the light you bring the stars When they take the light you bring the stars Enter the grave holding steel Demons of dark are drawing near You feel love pulling you back From ripping claws and alien eyes Hold the love, hold the love Shadows fall before your rage Don’t forget, never forget You’re the start, you’ll be the end Gods drink deep all these lies All these worlds all who die Took the life and held it tight when life was gone Still a part that believes the worth of this form You wield the strength you’ve always known Chain the hands of fate because you can Chain the hands of fate because I can
Evening Sky 05:57
All blood red, all the fear, and the taste, all blood red You fear the worm that cleans your bones So you run and run and run and forget to breathe Weakened by the way you chose You find yourself made to crawl Black shapes fall against the evening sky And you’ve never felt so low With night the mystics come to trade their form And know darkness forever You see flames stuttering And the knife blade shine All blood red, all the fear, and the taste And the secrets we’ve seen
Fera Magic 04:30
Witch light upon cold wind Wolf cry and the hunt comes Arms high and the flames rise Beast run through the dark night Wild magic lives forever Wild magic lives within us all Screams out from the wildland Nightmare for the people Voice loud to the blackness Face blazing with laughter Eram quod es Eris quod sum Feel truth inside Feel truth burn inside
Red Dark 04:25
The burden of your secret knowledge All these visions kill your soul The sorrow of this gift of foresight And tombs filled with those you knew Mind awake in a place unknown Body still, the face reveals it all You’re not afraid, the curse is coming back It will destroy, Red Dark now turns your mind Soon the pain, you see no way to end it Future known Til the dark Out for blood Your heartbreak is that no one will hear you And you hold your vengeance alone
The River 05:27
Born in darkness and you grow Your blood from ancients to worship You prayed to the water, those below You drank deep the water and it made you whole If we could’ve known peace within our fortune We would have it all Past mistakes like death looming high like mountains And from there we fall Fear the wisdom of their plan All the dreams of ages gone Spread like fire, we burn down Fear the freedom So you run upriver to your home Plague rides with you and sickens all You plead with your body then you turn You bathe in the river and tear yourself apart From within the dark a city rises upward Til it touches sky And the earth becomes a signal out to space A signal for them all Rise Rise from below
Warthon 07:51
We evolve And we hope despite what we’ve always known We don’t change We forget the past to do the same Choose the field Til the end our backs against the wall Shouts turn to screams Misery makes us strong so we believe Past buried under past Rise for the future We celebrate the ones with virtuous kill All eyes upon the warrior We do it again
We stand before you now Bless the ground you will walk Say your name to the winds Chant the phrases of power But before you go Amulet of strength to hold And the chain hearth forged And when the words are said You are bound to your home So you’re never lost in the cold And our thanks forever If you must die . . . Under the moon, through the wood Come to me, receive your pain We feel the gods around you Guiding the way ahead And ready our defenses And we wait
