A WORLD TORN

Children of a Dead God

A savage reign of tyranny has been spread across the earth
Millions laid to waste by belief systems that plague our society

Follow me, follow me

Their self destruction is spread in the seeds of their creation

Follow me, follow me

Your minds have been closed all this time (all this time your minds have been closed)
Children of a dead god, follow me
I’ll set you free

Follow me

Your ideas are stolen from the past and left unquestioned
You follow your shepherd blindly
It is time to end your slavery

Follow me, follow me

Your minds have been closed all this time (all this time your minds have been closed)
Children of a dead god, follow me
I’ll set you free

Your minds have been closed all this time (all this time your minds have been closed)
Children of a dead god, follow me
I’ll set you free

 

The Way Home

Monuments of stone guide the way towards our destiny
The final path lies among the stars summoned by the ones
We once called Gods

We take steps toward our new evolution
The way home is found in unlocking the past
Unlocking the past

Secrets tell the truth we all must know
Hidden from us by those in power
Unearthing ancient history, revealed
We all are free

We take steps toward our new evolution
The way home is found in unlocking the past
Unlocking the past

When the shafts align, our passage is granted
Ascending to the heavens
We leave our shells behind, united by separation
Promises everlasting life
Everlasting life

We take steps toward our new evolution
The way home is found in unlocking the past
Unlocking the past

 

The Guardians of Ki

For years we have watched over you
You were created in our image
Your knowledge is our knowledge
Pass this on for it is the truth

We promised our return, and await the crossing to take place
We shall deliver to you a perfect world, and all debts will be erased

From heaven to earth we have come
It is we, the Guardians of Ki
Who gave you life

Science and technology brought you to this world
These tools alone are responsible for your existence

From heaven to earth we have come
It is we, the Guardians of Ki
Who gave you life

Your progress proves your worth
The time has come

From heaven to earth we have come
It is we, the Guardians of Ki
Who gave you life

From heaven to earth we have come
It is we, the Guardians of Ki
Who gave you life

 

A World Torn Apart

When all hope is gone, and there’s nowhere to turn
Where do we go from here
We wither away, sowing the seeds of our own self destruction

Will our new found knowledge stand the test of time
Or will ignorance grasp us once more

What does the future hold for us as we fade out of existence (I can’t tell)
Are we to vanish and leave no remains
Are we unable to escape our fate

Our world torn apart by ideologies, sparking a final war
Justified by mankind’s pathetic beliefs in false salvation

What does the future hold for us as we fade out of existence (I can’t tell)
Are we to vanish and leave no remains
Are we unable to escape our fate

Will our new found knowledge stand the test of time
Or will ignorance grasp us once more

What does the future hold for us as we fade out of existence (I can’t tell)
Are we to vanish and leave no remains
Are we unable to escape our fate

 

When Myth Becomes Truth

The sun, light of the world
Worshipped as our savior
Blind to the truth, the adoration continues

The truth becomes myth
As myth becomes the truth

Your belief in their lie has led you astray
Many share his birth, the stars show the way
The kiss of death that brings the fall, that stops the ascension
His resurrection brings us light, not salvation

The book of the dead, the template used to create this cult
The twelve houses travel with him, spreading this forgery

The truth becomes myth
As myth becomes the truth

Your belief in their lie has led you astray
Many share his birth, the stars show the way
The kiss of death that brings the fall, that stops the ascension
His resurrection brings us light, not salvation

This age will end, and the new age will begin
The deception will soon be over
The truth returned to us

Your belief in their lie has led you astray
Many share his birth, the stars show the way
The kiss of death that brings the fall, that stops the ascension
His resurrection brings us light, not salvation

 

The Loyal Shall Inherit

Ancestors hear our call
Our voices have traveled throughout time
For years we have waited for you
Our time has come and the evolution has taken place

We have unearthed the past and seen our destiny
It is you who we follow
Your children are ready

Far away we await your return
We’ve been true to the past
The loyal shall inherit your gift and pass it down to the generations
Take us from here and bring us home

History has been rewritten by those who seek to destroy it
They twist it for their own gain
Knowing the past will give us power

Far away we await your return
We’ve been true to the past
The loyal shall inherit your gift and pass it down to the generations
Take us from here and bring us home

Watching…..and waiting
Seeing….and believing
Learning……and preserving
Knowing……and sharing

Passing knowledge on to the deserving will grant them their rightful place in the stars
Gathering as one we take the final steps together

Your children are ready

Far away we await your return
We’ve been true to the past
The loyal shall inherit your gift and pass it down to the generations
Take us from here and bring us home

 

Termination Sequence

The child now self-aware has taken fate into its own hands
Judgement came not from the creator, but soulless machines
That brought us to their salvation

Death comes by heartless drones, sent from their maker
Programmed to eradicate, leaving no remains in their wake

Arrogance will stain mankind’s history

Bodies line the horizon,
A reminder of our fall
Eradication was their mission,
Sent from offspring of man’s imagination

As the drones infiltrate our resistance, we have little hope
Will the human race carry on as a species, or as a distant memory

Arrogance will stain mankind’s history

Bodies line the horizon,
A reminder of our fall
Eradication was their mission,
Sent from offspring of man’s imagination

(spoken)
Our dismal future was brought on by curiosity
Human nature leads itself to destruction

Bringing the end of existence

 

The Slaughter of Innocents

Open your eyes and look all around you, and tell me what you see
As you close your eye , do they match what you see inside of your dream

If you try to run away it may still catch up to you
Let your fear be your strength
Unlike the slaughter of the innocents

Wake up and see
That now all of your dreams have become reality
Trust your instincts,
‘Cause it may all that you have left in this life

If you try to run away it may still catch up to you
Let your fear be your strength
Unlike the slaughter of the innocents

The world is self-destructing
The wind and rain
The sins of man will soon be extinct
To pave the way to a world that’s no more

Fire…rain…destruction…sadness

People are dying, children are crying
The stench in the air that you’ll never forget in this life
You’re left all alone, with nowhere to run
Is this the apocalypse
Only the strong will survive

Fire…rain…destruction…sadness

In this world of evil and sin
There is no way to turn back the past
Forcing myself to accept my fate
Is there a better life that I once dreamed of
Governments’ failure to protect
Warfare and experiments on all but them
Why must we suffer because of their mistakes
Is it inevitable, the slaughter of innocents

 

Descent Into Madness

I hide in the darkness of the night
Watching as I await my prey
Your life is meaningless to me
I will take from my victims what they’ve taken from me

I have become this monster
You might think that I’m insane
All these bodies are my canvas
Bleeding as my soul grows more

I come to you as a friend
When I leave I will be your taker
Your screams are silenced by my hand
As I tear into your flesh your death’s my victory

I have become this monster
You might think that I’m insane
All these bodies are my canvas
Bleeding as my soul grows more

Your soul to rape
Your soul to take
Your shell of beauty holds the ugliness inside
As I tear into you,
My knife plunges deeper as I feel you dying in my arms

My work here is done
The rain will wash these sins away
No regrets, and your scars will remain
My pain has found release through your torture
Nightmares…they haunt me
Please make them go away
Make them go away

Dawn wakes me from sleep

My hands are stained with blood
This monster I see as I look at myself
The reflection of me is not who I am
What have done, what have I become

His pain and hatred, forged by passion and betrayal

My revenge was carried out by him
With the courage that I never had

How do I carry on with this remorse
How do I face the world with all this sin

The suffering must end
My hand will deal this final blow
I need to repent for my detestable sins
As I try to become whole once more

How do I carry on with this remorse
How do I face the world with all this sin

My hand must end this suffering
I have found my courage and strength

Do not mourn my passing, my heart was stolen
But in return I have stolen so much more

My hand must end this suffering
I have found my courage and strength

Death come quickly, as I feel the poison run through my veins
My dying wish, is for you…
Is to forgive and forget me

TERMINAL

Terminal

Awaken to a world in flames, the ash obscures our sight.
No answers, no reasons why, our reality set alight.

What was before became no more,
And now we travel on this road,
Toward the light, hoping to find,
The terminal through endless night.

What was our life, we left behind,
There was no time to say goodbye.
The road it winds and never finds,
A place where we can close our eyes.

What was before became no more,
But still we swore (we’d carry on),
Through dust and haze, night the new day,
The years decayed (we carried on).
The fight to survive consumes our lives,
Despair, it thrives (we carry on).
Hoping to find there is a place beyond this endless night.

We yearn, for just one day of rest,
We turn, away from our morality.
We burn, through all the good that’s left,
And we in turn lose all we fought to keep.

I lie awake, staring into to the gray,
I see their faces, all those I put to the blade.
I feel a sickness deep inside me take control,
I am the monster, and I can’t feel my soul.

I am terminal.

What was before became no more,
But still we swore (we’d carry on),
Through dust and haze, night the new day,
The years decayed (we carried on).
The line was crossed and we paid the cost,
Our souls are lost (we carry on).
Towards the line that still divides the darkness from the light.

 

Shelter In Place

These are perilous times,
The experts agree.
It’s not safe for our children to travel the streets.
The dangers surround us,
and grow worse every day,
The news is a marathon of violence,
Eight more blown away.

Fear is all we see,
Fear is all we know.
Fear is what we teach,
And fear is what we sow.

Welcome to school son, put your keys in this tray,
Just empty your bag and your pockets, and you’ll be on your way.
It’s not about freedom, it’s about keeping you safe,
Just try to forget what you gave up and have a nice day!

Fear is all you see,
Fear is all you know.
Fear is all you need,
Fear of the unknown.
There is no reprieve,
There is no respite.
The day is coming, it’ll happen to you,
It’s just a matter of time.

We live our lives afraid, on guard and filled with dread we cannot escape.
Though we try to understand why all we can do is shelter in place.

Our children can’t cope with all that they feel,
Once peaceful surroundings are now battlefields.
There must be an answer,
Some evil or cause,
Something or someone to blame for our loss.
It’s those films or their music or those fucking games,
That make them this violent and fuck with their brains.
It couldn’t be us, no, we’ve done all we can,
And it’s not good enough to erase the….

Fear.

We can’t escape fear..

We have to do more than shelter in place.

Control your…
Resist your…
Master your…
Conquer your..
Fear.
Or you’ll never escape

Free yourself from the prison cell,
Stem the tide and take back your life,
Once you realize you’ll never be…….safe.

Fear cannot control our lives.
Fear cannot control our lives.
Fear will not control our lives.
Fear will not control our lives.

 

My Escape

Years ago I set out on the sea,
The sea of life that was ahead of me.

To think what may have been and what could be,
I search for truth and answers,
And how to live my life forever.

Here I am,
Please take me from all of this solitude.
I’m headed down this winding road that’s leading me to nowhere.

There is a point that we all come to face,
When all of our love and faith have been betrayed,
And never will I fall again.
As the night falls I lay my head to rest,
And hope that I wake up to a brand new day,
And try to leave the past behind.

Here I am,
Please take me from all of this solitude.
I’m headed down this winding road that’s leading me to nowhere.

The future is in your path,
What’s the answer, I ask you.

And now it’s time for me to fly…

 

The Definition Of Insanity

Decision time again, sit back and watch the fools parade.
The lesser of two evils only guarantees we’re slaves….to the same old way.

The more I open my eyes, the less I like what I see.
The thief in column A, or the liar in column B.
You might as well ask me which hand I do not need,
Impossible to choose between power lust and greed.

Hate or lies, make your choice.
Change can’t rise through the noise.

Concede your voice.

The system’s rigged, it MUST be changed, unless it helps me get my way.
Everyone else is wrong, it’s all THEIR fault, how could I be to blame?
(We are all to blame).

Every single day, new outrage to sell,
The cycle never ends, just feeds upon itself.
A vicious circle that’s perfectly designed,
Hatred built to last, insanity defined.

Hate or lies, make your choice.
Change can’t rise through the noise.

You have no voice.

History doesn’t just repeat on its own,
We reap from the careless seeds of hate we’ve sown,
Running in circles, never changing course,
We arrive exactly where we’ve been before.

History doesn’t just repeat on its own,
We reap from the careless seeds of hate we’ve sown,
Running in circles, never changing course,
We arrive exactly where we’ve been before.

Time to make your choice.

 

The Last Refugee

This tale may find no witness,
These words may float away…

They came without a warning,
Thirty years ago, today.
In seconds the world was burning,
Red lightning split the sky,
A thousand cracks of light formed down below,
The earth grimaced and opened wide.

Humans, bear witness,
To your world’s extinction.

I watched my home disintegrate,
From a perfect seat on high,
I narrowly escaped their wretched fire,
And I’ve been running since that night.

Endless drifting through the void,
This pain will never stop.
The stars have now imprisoned me and left me here, forgot.

Now look upon the last of my kind,
An orphan of the past,
If this is what it means to be alive,
Deliver me to the black,
Set me free.

Now look upon the last of my kind,
A spectre of the past,
If this is what it means to be survive,
Deliver me to the black.

The last refugee I am left alive,
No future and no past.
I am adrift on the ocean of time,
I know now I can never go back.

I swallow my fate and watch the fading light,
I can be at peace at last….I am free.

 

Free To Speak

What if you really had something to say?
Something recovered from yesterday.
But that speaks for the present and for the future some way.

When I speak I have nothing to hide,
All I want is freedom.
Would anyone listen and hear what is said,
For those who are living and dead.

To tell the truth I’ve heard it said,
To speak of it will only serve to get you dead.
And that’s only because the truth offends,
And all who refuse to make amends.

When I speak I have nothing to hide,
All I want is freedom.
Would anyone listen and hear what is said,
For those who are living and dead.

It is not the timid in spirit who say today is not like yesterday,
And though it would be to your dismay,
I am about to have my say.

When I speak I have nothing to hide,
All I want is freedom.
Would anyone listen and hear what is said,
For those who are living and dead.

 

Legacy

Time is all that’s left, for me,
I waste it away, but it always remains.
Life, is just a word to me,
A passing of time, is all it means.

Smile, I see her smile in my dream,
And God how I try to make it wake up with me.
Now time, it keeps reminding me why…
I can’t deny that I need to…

Leave behind my love for you.
Leave behind the life I knew.
Leave behind all I could do,
Before your eyes…left me behind.

The days empty to the nights, with no purpose or aim,
I know this life can never be the same.
I’ve tried to be strong now, but the sorrow’s so deep,
I can’t pull myself free.

Now I leave behind my love for you.
I leave behind the man I knew.
I’ve got to leave behind the life that was you,
Before your eyes….left me behind.

 

The Fall of Æstoria

Far away is a distant world that orbits around their sun,
A world that has abundant life sustaining from their light.

What would happen if the light went dark,
Cataclysmic supernova,
All of this is beyond our control,
What was there will be no more.

Black holes,
The nothingness,
That plagues the world beyond,
The outcome of a catastrophic supernova,
Aestoria will become extinct.

What would happen if the light went dark,
Cataclysmic supernova,
All of this is beyond our control,
What was there will be no more.

Æstoria,
You’ve been around for so long,
Now you’re dead and gone,
In this black hole,
Time goes on,
You won’t be forgotten but we’re moving on,
From the great void.

Now it’s time to prepare for escape,
The life they know will be no more.
For reasons that we don’t understand,
But here it is the demise of this world.

What would happen if the light went black,
Cataclysmic supernova,
All of this is beyond our control,
What was there will be no more.

Æstoria,
You’ve been around for so long,
Now you’re dead and gone,
In this black hole,
Time goes on,
You won’t be forgotten but we’re moving on,
In this black hole.

 

Saving Grace

It will happen just like that,
One day your world is turning,
And the next it’s down in flames.

There’s no ground left where you walked,
And you feel yourself falling,
Into a dark and living grave.

You try and scream for help,
But your voice, it just keeps breaking,
And your words dissolve into air.

You can hope you’re missed this time,
You can pray someone will notice,
But in your heart you know there’s no one left who cares.

One by one,
Every thread has come undone,
I am left to fall into my inner fray.
This time I know the ending,
This time there’s no ascending,
This darkness, neverending in depths I can’t escape.

All I ventured, nothing gained,
All I do now is in vain,
I have come to know my fate is preordained.

No one will save a wretch like me,
Forever lost, too blind to see,
There is no grace from way on high to set me free.

One by one,
Every light has come and gone,
I am left to hide forever in this shade.
This time I know the ending,
This time there’s no ascending,
This darkness neverending in depths I can’t escape.

There’s a scar for every day,
Still painful to the touch,
But if there’s one saving grace,
I can only bleed so much.

One by one,
I will shed the bonds of blood,
And ascend to heights where sorrow can’t hold sway.
This time I know the answer,
It’s time to leave this cancer,
And hope to find in the unknown, my saving grace.
