Track Name: Where Serpents Conquer
Break away, seize the day, enveloped in a sea of disarray
Create the storm, chaos born, build them up and scorch the earth that stand on
I hear them, two faced, lying
One heart beat criticizing

Rising ablazed, deception erased, chaos reigns
Where serpents conquer
Valley of lies, we all despise, divinity dies
Where serpents conquer
Where serpents conquer all

Atrocities, in sanctity, follow orders from a mortal entity
Bow your head, the noose is set, unless you pay your last gold sovereign
Hypocrisy is flowing, halos of blood are looming

Rising ablazed, deception erased, chaos reigns
Where serpents conquer
Valley of lies, we all despise, divinity dies
Where serpents conquer
Where serpents conquer all

Desecrate, contaminate, sacrilege to the true believers
Man is born, no sin to mourn, fueled by men who can't control their fears
Morality is drowning, rivers of lies are rising

Rising ablazed, deception erased, chaos reigns
Where serpents conquer
Valley of lies, we all despise, divinity dies
Where serpents conquer
Where serpents conquer all

We won't give in to them
We won't take hate from them
We'll one day live to breathe again
Where serpents conquer all of them

Blood, shimmers under light of moon
No payback time, children of forgotten runes
Word has spread of a forest
Bear the fruits of a freedom we all crave
Track Name: Silence In Sight
An age is born, deranged and torn
The people cower out of consternation
Blood in their eyes, no more must die
Sentries marching causing real insomnia
The time of men, all good as dead
Bodies lying as they fell all frozen
The silence screams, fear it will deem
Trepidation causes serpents to enslave

Is this the life we live?
No sun has shone for days
Oppressed, we've lost the fight
For all but the wind, it's Silence in Sight

Now miles away, the rumours say
The cold has fostered only one creation
A world of peace, for us he'll seek
Massing armies, all incinerated
Brave the storm, no time to mourn
Fuelling hatred only makes you stronger
Many will die, betray and lie
Incarceration causes mankind to be brave

Is this the life we live?
No sun has shone for days
Oppressed, we've lost the fight
For all but the wind, it's Silence in Sight

The race of men, downtrodden and broken
Feel the cuts on your skin
A land once free is now barren and lifeless
No one will sleep, the time has come for us to wake
Track Name: Beneath The Waves
I remember times like these
When peace was gained, a life of ease
It's so frustrating, our lives are yearning
Not a chance to say goodbye, return again to a lonely life
The future's burning, the future's burning

But I breath, say the word
Call, gaze your eyes beneath the waves
Free the scorn
Old I'll die, drown this world beneath the waves

Take the time and wonder why
Our lives are made to live this lie
A race of cowards, fold back not onwards
Watch on as children cry
Too scared to lift a blinded eye
Our fear will rule us, our fear will rule us

Break away
Take back this day
Force them back from whence they came
The shields are up, now meet your doomsday
I've felt it all
I've hurt enough
Salvation lies
No reason why
The jagged pierce of torment, quench my thirst

Face in the sand
This war we'll never win
Portraits of death are painted fast
My ammunition explodes
Track Name: Resurgence
On the ice, no one fights, you fall and freeze as cold as night
The tales of men know well
March on far to the higher land, march on far to the higher land

General’s eyes, gold as hives, orders read by blinded eyes
Death lies in apathy
Sit back, rejoice and enjoy the ride. Sit back, rejoice and enjoy the ride

Free to be the man you are but they’re leaving you with nothing
Feel the rain on your skin
Your chance has passed, you followed the men who would leave you here with nothing
Left you all behind as slaves to shed their skin

The time has come at last, claim back our land and past
I’ve gone too long and I’m chomping at the bit
What lies ahead is wrong, today no song is sung
Resurgence, snakely, makes me fall to my knees

Blood will flow, heads will roll, lack of judgement, seeds you’ll sow
Your kind will weep for this
Take them back far to the barren lands, take them back far to the barren lands
Crucified, burnt alive, retribution, none alive
Your screams will fill the sky
None of this freedom for the sons of men, none of this freedom for the sons of men

Free to be the man you are but they’re leaving you with nothing
Feel the rain on your skin
Your chance has passed, you followed the men who would leave you here with nothing
Left you all behind as slaves to shed their skin

The time has come at last, claim back our land and past
I’ve gone too long and I’m chomping at the bit
What lies ahead is wrong, today no song is sung
Resurgence, snakely, makes me fall to my knees

No sleep for those, who wait for them
No concsience fills the slow
My eyes are playing tricks on me
As shadows form their webs around our wayward souls
Track Name: We All Have Dreams
There wasn't much in this heart of mine
Only stars in naive eyes
To those days, oh, I wish could return
Love only answered to its master's cries
Fueling only to my lonely lies
A creature buried deep within my mind

But keep those eyes away, I'll turn to stone and my heart will flounder
Yes, keep those tears away, bury yourself in a pit of darkness

Gone beyond this fear I'm dreading
I'll take this on alone
You'll never find me, dishonour family
Believe it all, for we all have dreams

Lamentations only last you so long
Viewing the world with your eyes to the sun
Men have paved a road you cannot stretch
The sands of time will bring you freshly awake
If only laughing for humanities sake
Just move along it's time to meet your fate

So keep those eyes away, I'll turn to stone and my heart will flounder
Yes, keep those tears away, bury yourself in a pit of darkness

Gone beyond this fear I'm dreading
I'll take this on alone
You'll never find me, dishonour family
Believe it all, for we all have dreams

Save your tears now
Ships not sailing
Memories are ripe for picking
The future holds a light, just take it

I've carried you with me
I've taken it all upon me
Fulfill your dream, for my own sake
At least one of us must live out the life they predict
Track Name: The Arrow
Night’s sky, a forger strikes and the new world meets its master
Too long has iron lay, a mark of history frayed
Kings feast, naive at least to the imminent fall of power
The tongue is forked for now, the men will meet their vow

The moon is making way
Collapsing forces, the tides at bay
The tundra’s winds are out of breath
Hope will rise out of human flesh

Daylight, an invisible sun, bringing life to the frozen millions
The ice slays on for days, no sun, no warmth, no rays
Bring fire for the moon grows old, he tires in his constant glamour
Save me from these chains, incarcerate the rain

Go alone, far away, where the eyes of bowman range
Your cries are falling on dead ears

Run fast, don't look back, they soar above the rest
Our friend, the arrow, bring solace back

Storms revealing corrupted systems
The crowds revolt in disgust, not gracefully
No longer will we bow down to this
Repeat this oath, no man shall rot to snakes
Track Name: Throes Of Fear
Welcome back, to the land of the free
Only one battle away from the cusp
Out march the thousand weak
Never set to retreat, for we stand strong tonight

All minds and matters freeze
Never ending, never seizing to be
Standing strong with a view of the land they sing “Heads will roll before me”
Hold fast, their time is up
An extinction only second to none
Spit falls from savage mouths they sing “No son shall fall before us”

Throes of fear

Look deep into the eyes of the black
The arrows soar into a cloud overhead
Fall silent for one last breath
Only visions of death, feel no fear, forward march

Where is the one true son
The one who answers, his legend was born
Lying maimed with a view of the sword they cry “Take my life with honour”
No tale, the age forgets
Serpent’s conquered while the clouds onward wept
Hope’s name, forever enslaved, the key lies with one forsaken man

My wake can only be broken by their hopelessness
No more will weep, their sacrifice will quake throughout the age
Track Name: Runes In The Red Forest
All I see, is a world confused and tortured
History, can I choose a path less forward
Let me be, once a man now lying dormant
Falicy, all the hope on one man's shoulders

I can't take this, light me up
All is lost, take my spirit
As I'm paralyzed and torn
Runes are shown, leaves of red stand tall

Can it be, that the one's I've loved betray me
I can see, no-one's here to fall at my knees
Feel the need, lift the flag, the standard calling
Will I bleed, speak the names that move all mountains

I can't take this, light me up
All is lost, take my spirit
As I'm paralyzed and torn
Runes are shown, leaves of red stand tall

Bring back the shadows of time
Where a man will rise up from the bodies
I can foresee my fate
Within the eyes of a serpent's kiss
You are mine now
Awakened the rage of a thousand men in one

Memories creeping back to save me
Sense the light through the door
My brother's hand will be there to grab me
Pick me up from the floor, I call to arms

Peace restrained, hate proclaimed, take me back to my family
Your life is mine, you chose to die, tears fall down in my fury

Too many lies have you wasted on my ears today
No friend of mine you'll slay
Many died it's up to me, incinerate
No more will come of this
I've seen your kind pillage all the wealth from here away
Took vines from which I'm sown
A mother's love is only stronger than her son's distaste
In raping a figure that meant the world to me

You won't taint my blood!

Live is to die, my memory will never fade away
Shine bright for all to see
Can you find, an answer to your self pity?
Brings pain to all you free
Cold stars, are kneeling in my wake, they pray
Hope lies in a man today
Not with a sword but with an arrow brings the end to snakes
No one to witness, they'll cover my win in shame

The snakes are dead!

I've sacrificed, gave of my blood, shown enemies the tears which I've shed
Remember me, let no one repeat. Atrocities like these should be buried forever
My only fear is I'll die here forgotten, Remember me... never forget
