Track Name: Hate Plague
It starts a seed
sowed by those who seek control
as you feel it spread
your eyes are opened

We've clawed our way through the dark
to reach this point of realisation
to escape from tyranny
we must create through hate a revolution

Blind to the masses
they've brought us this plague
a disease unseen by naked eyes
lives wasting away

So we fight
for the chance
to
break these bonds
slaves
that think
that they are free

Numbers
gather
to the cause
the war has begun
to break the throne
sacrifice must be made
for generations of freedom
some will die today

A nation infected
by a plague of hate
the only cure is
a forced mutiny
a nation infected
by a plague of hate
that bleeds the land
of all it has

So we fight
for the chance
to
break these bonds
slaves
that know
they will be free

Numbers
gather
to the cause
the war rages on
as the throne crumbles
sacrifice was made
for generations of freedom
some have died today

A nation infected
by a plague of hate
the only cure is
a forced mutiny
a nation infected
by a plague of hate
that bleeds the land
of all it has

Storm the gates
destroy their kingdom
everything they took for granted
take back what is ours

You
will
suffer
as we
break the throne
and take back what is ours
Track Name: Day of the Machines
Lifeless invasion by an
army of the unliving
no emotion for remorse
they strike with precision

a battle of intelligence
artificial against organic
only one can survive
this is war

they feel no pain
no regret as they break us down
this day is theirs
the creations now rule the creators

oh the irony of the situation
the things you own end up owning you
all the materialistic values of the world
have lead to its end

a battle of intelligence
artificial against organic
only one can survive
this is war

they feel no pain
no regret as they break us down
this day is theirs
the creations now rule the creators

they feel no pain (our creations now rule us all)
no regret as they break us down
this day is theirs
our creations now rule us all

our creations now rule us all

cold and calculating
one by one they hunt us down
humanity is outnumbered
start counting your days

they feel no pain
no regret as they break us down
this day is theirs
the creations now rule the creators

they feel no pain (our creations now rule us all)
no regret as they break us down
this day is theirs
our creations now rule us all

blood meets metal
a war of creation
only one can survive
Track Name: Into the River
as you walk through the shallows
of this
blood soaked river
ignoring the signs
and you
keep going further

without a single thought
you pass the point of
no return
and then before you know it
its too late

struggling and writhing trying
to get your head up
above the current but you
are constantly dragged back down into the
dark mass
that is pulling you away

weighed down and trapped by a
force that you can't control
gasping desperately as
you're being swept away
this place that you are
is a trap of the mind
and you cant escape

weighed down and trapped by a
force that you can't control
gasping desperately as
you're being swept away
this place that you are
is a trap of the mind

this is the prison you've made

a river of voices;
your diminishing conscience
while your actions drag you further
into the water

and all of a sudden
a gasping rush of
realisation
that floods in too late
so you turn back and start

struggling and writhing trying
to get your head up
above the current but you
are constantly dragged back down into
the dark mass
that is pulling you away

weighed down and trapped by a
force that you can't control
gasping desperately as
you're being swept away
this place that you are
is a trap of the mind
and you cant escape

weighed down and trapped by a
force that you can't control
gasping desperately as
you're being swept away
this place that you are
is a trap of the mind

this is the prison you've made

you have created

as you sink
you look back to the surface
only realising now
Track Name: Autophobia
I'm lost
absorbed in this nightmare
but there's no waking up;
this is how we live

alone
we can barely stand
we don't
know how to stay in
control
fearing every lie that
my own
mind will create

the fabrication of
a reality that is
truly non existent
but nonetheless is
still a prominent
fear as my reality
is defined in
my own mind

i know my reactions are
unfounded
these overwhelming feelings are
insane
but the rules that my mind has
created
they govern my response at

an unconscious level
rendering
any intellectual control
entirely powerless
leaving nothing but
primal instinct in
these situations

as my vision subsides
i make an attempt to regain self control
but what is not lost cannot be gained
such is the nature of fear

and as the realization begins to come to light
the line between reality and thought begins to fade
causing a toxic mix of misfortune
loss of self control and fear

I'm lost
absorbed in this nightmare
but there's no waking up;
this is how we live

alone
we can barely stand
we don't
know how to stay in
control
fearing every lie that
my own
mind will create

the fabrication of
a reality that is
truly non existent
but nonetheless is
still a prominent
fear as my reality
is defined in
my own mind

as i look at my reflection
i see myself morph
and feel sanity
release
the grip that kept me up
sent falling down in to
the depths of space and time

to a place that cant be real
i wont accept that my existence
is now bound to this dead place
one of unwanted self reflection
explain to me control
from the outside looking in

as my vision subsides
i make an attempt to regain self control
but what is not lost cannot be gained
such is the nature of fear

and as the realization begins to come to light
the line between reality and thought begins to fade
causing a toxic mix of misfortune
loss of self control and fear
Track Name: Planetary Collision
forget all you know

a forced acclimatization to
this foreign world
a war not of politics or race
but life itself

we aren't welcome
as we've been warned
we are the few that have chosen
to debate our terms

as we adjust to our surroundings
and observe the land

it becomes obvious that
the way of life is not as
different as we thought and
that this war is merely a
chance for the

powers to grow and
expand their greed
how do you choose a side
when there is no morality

welcome to
our war
of worlds

as we all come to this
realization
we wonder if our so called opposition
feels the same

how can difference cause
such devastation
in the end we are all the same

our leaders sit back and ponder
while the brave men die
carrying out their wishes of
expansion while they

betray their own
forget us all
this is no righteous conflict
this is a civil war

as we adjust to our surroundings
and observe the land

it becomes obvious that
the way of life is not as
different as we thought and
that this war is merely a
chance for the

powers to grow and
expand their greed
how do you choose a side
when there is no morality

welcome to
our war
of worlds

as we all come to this
realization
we wonder if our so called opposition
feels the same

how can difference cause
such devastation
in the end we are all the same

don't blindly follow
the beliefs that they have handed down
question every choice that
they have made to gain their crown

don't blindly follow
the beliefs that they have handed down
question every choice that
they have made to gain their crown

don't blindly follow (welcome)
the beliefs that they have handed down (to)
question every choice that (our war)
they have made to gain their crown (of worlds)

Track Name: Terminus
yield no ground
mark out all of your
boundaries
set them in stone
prepare your sacrifice of
blood ashes and bone

whether it be
a weapon or a tool
use his blessing
to protect what is yours

your potential
is limitless
your resolve
now set in stone

now that you have no
boundaries in your life
take no prisoners
show them your worth

define
all of
your own
boundaries

sacrifice the offering
to gain the
favour of the gods you seek
dig the hole and bury all
the blood the ashes
and the bone

seal the worship
with sacred stone
as you were destined
to define boundaries in your own

life
you draw the line
allow
no dictation
struggle
on no more
take control
the gods are with you

your enemies
will cower in your presence
they must tread lightly
as you are blessed by the divine

because you have no
boundaries in your life
take no prisoners
show them your worth

sacrifice the offering
to gain the
favour of the gods you seek
dig the hole and bury all
the blood the ashes
and the bone

seal the worship
with sacred stone
as you were destined
to define boundaries in your own

life
you draw the line
allow
no dictation
struggle
on no more
take control
the gods are with you

terminus
give us strength
remove limits
set us free

terminus
give us strength
remove limits
set us free
Track Name: Inversion
look into yourself

recursive dysevolution
involuntary removal from yourself
out of body actions that describe
the instinctual intelligence
that defines us all

you find yourself
retreating into nothingness
dont let go
or you will lose yourself
to an inversion of your fading mind

somehow
you've risked it all
so now
you fall apart
torn down by rogue thoughts
triggered by this
inversion of yourself

as you
fight your own
impulsions
you realize that this was your own fault
you
now know
there is no
recovering
from this grave you have created

free
your mind
from
regression

adapt and change
look into yourself

an unnerving process of
nerve fibers unraveling
falling apart while you're
trying to keep
the straight face
that you show us all

you find yourself
retreating into nothingness
dont let go
or you will lose yourself
to an inversion of your fading mind

somehow
you've risked it all
so now
you fall apart
torn down by rogue thoughts
triggered by this
inversion of yourself

as you
fight your own
impulsions
you realize that this was your own fault
you
now know
there is no
recovering
from this grave you have created

free
your mind
from
regression

adapt and change
look into yourself

your mind is lost
look into yourself
