Track Name: Bring The Light
Tear it down.

I always knew this night would come without a warning, we are the ones who died chasing lost dreams.

We are the fire (the tides will swallow you), we are the flames lighting your way, we are the fall (we are the claws of fate).

In war and love, we carry on and with fire in our hearts we'll take this to the grave

I. and I know that my place is here and I know that my time is now (to rise), realize that this moment may be your last.

[Solos: Vince/M-A]

II. bring on the light that blinds (the light that heals) and nothing and no one will tear us down, it's time to stand up and rise. Stand tall, bring the light.
Track Name: Heads Will Roll
Just keep smiling, kiss the ring. Don't look me in the eye in this place (the house of God)

, for I sit at a throne that's red with the blood of Christ. I am my Master's will made flesh, I am revenge.

Heads will roll to the depths of the Promised Land. I hold the threads of life in my hands (I am demise).

You never feared for your life as you buried us all, and now you'll count your lies as it comes to an end. You never feared for your life as you buried this world, and now you'll count your lies on this Day of the Dead.

The light is gone forever and now your life it fades away. Burn with me. Won't you join me in this fall from grace? [Solos: M-A/Vince]
Track Name: Prayers & Ballistics
[Solo: M-A] Dusk their dawn until they see the light, dusk their dawn until they all fall down from the height of their tyranny to the depths of the grave.
Praying to see the light of another waking day, clenching fists to tear it down and rebuild again.

Between the sound and silence, between solace and drowning, lift me up it's my time to rise.

Take hold of the hatred and the strength you've held inside, and stand tall with faith that we will prevail. We were once the hated, the lost and the wronged. With prayers and ballistics, we will conquer all.
[Solos: Vince/Twin/Battle]
Track Name: Lost At Sea
You can still turn around and come back up to solid ground, to the surface, take back the air you craved for so long and cut your anchors loose forever.

They will bring you down in this place where waves push you further. Fight for your place in the Sun, for your place under the heavens.

So cut your anchors loose my friend, set your sails homeward again;

we all stand at the edge, on the borderline, with the ocean facing us as it whispers Death.

[Solo: Jef Fortin]

Through the waves and the rising tides, we stand alone (we stand alone).

"The eyes of fire, the nostrils of air, the mouth of water, the beard of earth" [William Blake, Proverbs of Hell] [Solos: M-A/Vince]
Track Name: The Stand
Stand up and be counted, Walk the path of the meek, the faint and the restless. I see it in your eyes: the snake that binds inside, the crows that prey on life. You've carried the weight of this world for far too long.

Rise for it is time to claim in these dim times: your name, your dues, your life, in a world that's paved with lies.

You never tried to live, you just crawled through the shards of our existence.

The light it feels so far away, tonight it burns away the pain. If you fall away these dreams fall the same.

We are one in a dream so close, a thousand soul's alleviation We are one in a dream so near, borne a thousand fists in the air.

[Solos: Vince/M-A]
Track Name: When Forever Means A Day (R.I.P)
As I sit here alone, you pass me by; and all the things that you've said and done, they seep back into my mind. As I sit here with you and up look to the sky, I see eternity in your eyes and your whispers in my heart. What happens to the days we've lost? Are they just beyond the sun's dying light or are they gone forever? Sometimes it's so hard to breathe in this life; this is when I turn to you, to your voice in the wind, to your voice in the beats of my heart. What happens to the days we've lost? Are they just beyond the sun's dying light or are they gone forever?

RIP. We love you.
Track Name: Pharisee
The city spreads across the Horizon, burns the darkness away. Head and taillights, the burn of the sky rise, it's a blaze that cannot be stopped.

The city spreads across the Horizon, burns the darkness away. Head and taillights, the burn of the sky rise, it's a blaze that turns night to day.

A flame of light and waste rise through the twilight and past the graves of man until it meets its match: Another sprawling mass of millions, crawling in the decay of life buried under the remains of society.

The clouds can't hide us from God any longer and the heavens shake at the sight of this new Babylon that is our fall, that is our home.

Now say your prayers to the Goddess of steel; she drains our lives away with a sweep of her ashen hands. Now say your prayers to the God of concrete; he drains our lives away with a sweep of his ashen hands.
Track Name: ...And Fear Dies Tonight
Tonight we rise, with flames in our hearts and our eyes opening to the Heavens above. Our will's awakened by what we've lost and our eyes have opened now to the Heavens above.

Our time has come to lose control. We all speak in one voice and yearn to be heard. All our lives we're told to lay down bearing a burden of No Tomorrow.

We know the darkness dies tonight, our fears won't hold us down and we'll live again. Time will fade in red by your hands, fighting for your own. And when it's time to die, you'll live on by His mercy.

When every night we hear them call our name in the wind, in the crashing waves, in the beats of our hearts. We hold our breath and hold our heads up high, with Faith that we'll find our place in the Heavens above. [Solos: Vince/M-A/Twin]
Track Name: Last Whisper
The last whisper I'd ever hear from her as she passed away in my arms: "Avenge my death, grant me this final wish". My own heart wept in pain like eyes to the suns eclipse.

I shall grant you this (I will avenge your death), I shall spill his blood (I will avenge your death), and bring peace to your dying soul (I will avenge your death), so that I too can die may die in Peace.

It is time to move through the shadows of the night, to stalk his every move, to slay him mercilessly. His eyes will gaze upon a man with nothing to lose but his life. His blood will spill of Hallowed Grounds; my love shall be avenged.

[Solos: M-A/Vince]

"Oh clement oh loving, oh sweet Virgin Mary".

[Solo: Twin]

I taste his fear as my footsteps have awakened him, I strike him down. In the gaze of wooden Saints, he falls to his knees, weeping to Christ. I taste his fear as my footsteps have awakened him, I strike him down. I gaze into his bleeding eyes. Bullet in the lung, last whisper.
Track Name: Out Of Words
I see you for everything you are, you were, you will be to me: a light just beyond my reach and beyond the horizon; where prayers fall to deaf ears and hope is but a flicker of light in the darkness of your life. Beyond the veil of lies, beyond the dying flame of light in the darkness of this world.

As I watch you slip away again and pass me by, I know that I will never let you go.

This romance is on the cutting board.

Oh you must think you were the only one with these thoughts that you'd never fail, and who watched them turn on you one by one, beyond the Horizon.

Nothing you said to me is going to set you free. Nothing you said to me is going to save you.

I'll wait for you, my Faith's alive and I've seen tomorrow.

I know it's our time to fall face first in this devastation, we all tore through these lives we've known. Lifeless we're not alone.

[Solos: Vince/M-A]

I'll stand by you, you'll stand by me. We're not alone.
