Track Name: Erebus
In the dead of the night
He clings to a flame that is fading,
A beacon of flickering light
A Crooked candle burnt low
Cuts through the tint of his window
And guides him into the dawn
Betraying his will
Betraying his need
Betrayed by the salt of the earth
Her rotten seeds
Have poisoned his mind
His skin and his bones
His lungs and his blood
His heart and his soul

My heart and soul
In the dead of the night
I watch a candle burn away
Holding no fear of the dark
I close my eyes, fall into sleep
The sweet scent of the wax
Has calmed and soothed my apprehension
Leaving the night behind
There's nothing for me here

The day offers little restbite
from the looming black
He's either shackled in the light
Or alone in the dark
He knows the time is upon him
The candle won't last
The dreaded night is approaching
So he better act fast
Sleep and let and let the toxins flow out if his veins?
Or stay awake and let the darkness take hold of his brain?
Take hold of his mind
His skin and his bones
His lungs and his blood
His heart and his soul
Take hold of his mind
His skin and his bones
Take hold of his lungs and blood
His heart and his soul
Track Name: What Fools These Mortals Be
Who do you think I am?
A fucking coward laid to waste by the fear of the of your word?
Pathetic, craven, an unseer of hope?
Bound by doubt, a running joke?
Stare into this vessel of hate
Let it burn your misjudgement away
My self containment was confused with timidity
And now control has been stripped by provocation, a declaration of war

What, what fools these mortals be
Shall I tear down the masks for all to see?
Look, look at the beast stood before you
The seeds are sewn, the future is bleak
(the future is bleak, the angels weep)

I will drag you whole
Into the depths of my condition
For a coward I am not

No hope
No peace
Cast down to Tartaros
Rot for eternity
Buried under walls forged from iron and bronze
Lost now to memory
Return back to serenity
Your face is forgotten
And my malice reset

I will drag you whole
To the depths of my condition
Torn and raped by the fear of my mind
For a coward you are

What fools these mortals be.
Track Name: Chasing The Unobtainable
In my dreams we stare straight at the sun (straight at the sun)
Reach out our arms and clasp the horizon (clasp the horizon)
Warmth consumes us and soothes our aching bones (aching bones)
And we rest in dream scape, bathed in light and far from home

I feel only sorrow that this dream will never come to pass
I feel only guilt that we never stood a chance

My fucking lungs are failing from the constant pursuit
Of what I can not reach, of what I must not choose
The sweet blue seduction of forbidden taste
Leaves me gagging for respite but longing for the chase

I feel only sorrow that this dream will never come to pass (dream will never come to pass)
I feel only guilt that we never stood a chance (never stood a chance)

Until my lungs collapse
Until I'm no more
