Track Name: Stalker
Watch you through the shadows of the day
Just so there can be no mistake
Can you feel my presence nearing; will you try to stop believing?
You are illicit evil pray

Grab you from behind I attack
Knock you to the ground on your back.
I am the endless nightmare
I stand here behind you.
Nothing left for you but vows and prayers

I know what you seek, you try to make believe
I know what you crave, to be alive this day
I know what you want, your love to tease and taunt
I know what I am, I am the stalker

Slice you; dice you now you are betrayed.
Nothing more to carve on your grave.
You've been left behind, tortured for no crime.
Nothing left but your own demise
Track Name: Hypnotise
Stand upon my stage, look into the crowd.
I shout come up, so volunteer now.

Hypnotise, feel my gaze.
Now your mine, no escape.

Swing the old trinket, Catch them in my spell.
Like smoke I vanish, to where I shall not tell.

Hypnotise, feel my gaze.
Now your mine, no escape.

Welcome to the horror chamber
You’ll be here for life.
Follow order to the letter.
Or you’ll feel the knife.

Welcome to the horror chamber
Welcome to your hell.
Salvation is your saviour,
In your eternal cell.

Hypnotise, feel my gaze.
Now your mine, no escape.

Back in another town.
I crack a wicked smile.
Never to be caught.
I’ve never be caught yet.

Hypnotise, feel my gaze.
Now your mine, no escape.
Hypnotise, feel my gaze.
Now your mine, no escape.
No escape
Track Name: The Lycan
As The Full Moon Rises
I Can Feel My Body Changing
Through The Darkest Hour
Feel My Body Seperating
As The Change Takes Place Again
Feel My Body Become Divine
No One Knows What I Will Be
Do You Know? Do You See?
And I Feel The Change Within Me

Now The Night Is Finally Here
And My Head Is Finally Clear
I Seek Violence Til I Sleep
For the Beast Within

Howl, As You’re Running Through The Night
And There’s No Place Else To Hide
Having The Wind Tear Through My Spine
Dark, With My Predatory Eyes
I Prepare For Your Demise
I Am The Lycan, I Will End You

During My Time As The Beast
Hunger Forever Is The Master
Slaying Then Becomes The Fun
No One Escapes Me In My Stride
As The Sun Light Comes To Peak
I Escape Into Myself
Always Seen By None
Now You Know, Now You Run
And Again I Shall Become Him

Now The Night Is Finally Here
And My Head Is Finally Clear
I Seek Violence Til I Sleep
For the Beast Within

Howl, As You’re Running Through The Night
And There’s No Place Else To Hide
Having The Wind Tear Through My Spine
Dark, With My Predatory Eyes
I Prepare For Your Demise
I Am The Lycan, I Will End You

Howl, As You’re Running Through The Night
And There’s No Place Else To Hide
Having The Wind Tear Through My Spine
Dark, With My Predatory Eyes
I Prepare For Your Demise
I Am The Lycan, I Will End You
Track Name: Rites of Passage
Quod scelestus vadum hereditas orbis terrarium
(And the wicked shall inherit the earth)

Terrarium
Terrarium
Terrarium

Hidden in there dusty tombs, elitist plan the world renewed,
Built on the dreams of tyrants and there archaic rule.
Don’t you want to join the elite?
Born to make there plans complete
Plans complete

Make peace with your destiny,
Rites of passage; set me free.

Monologues line your gullet, as you fuck around the minds of youth.
McGonagall would be proud of your inane truths.
Promising all, whilst on your throne
Built on foundations of ivory stone
Ivory Stone

Make peace with your destiny,
Rites of passage; set me free
Manipulate all your hopes and dreams.
Into his barbaric schemes

Corrupt, Vitiosus (Corrupt)
Corrupt, Vitiosus (Corrupt)
Corrupt, Vitiosus (Corrupt)
Corrupt, sheep to the flock

Corrupt, Vitiosus (Corrupt)
Corrupt, Vitiosus (Corrupt)
Corrupt, Vitiosus (Corrupt)
Corrupt, skulls for the throne

Make peace with your destiny,
Rites of passage; set me free
Manipulate all your hopes and dreams.
Into his barbaric schemes

Bring forth the sacrifice; take her life like myths of old.
Want and terror come as you reap her soul.
Seeking visions through one blind eye.
Whilst spreading false hope with sinister lies
Sinister lies

Make peace with your destiny,
Rites of passage; set me free
The ending comes ever near.
Clawing at what you hold dear
Track Name: Army of Darkness
Hear forgotten tales, long ago in time.
Affront to nature is there crime.
Seep to your mind, ritualistic dreams.
To tear your reality at the seams

Open your eyes, and realise this is the army of darkness
Open your eyes, and realise this is the army of darkness

Whispering to you, from their hidden realm
Deliver everything to yourself
While they scream and laugh, from their hidden shell
Listen too much; and be damned to hell

Open your eyes, and realise this is the army of darkness
Open your eyes, and realise this is the army of darkness

How can one man damn us all?
Can’t you see the darkness, the darkness...?
The darkness comes

Heretical ideals, malice in there taunts.
Purged with fire and shield they baulk.
So you wipe the slate, yet they come again.
To possess the wills of men

Open your eyes, and realise this is the army of darkness
Open your eyes, and realise this is the army of darkness
Open your eyes, and realise this is the army of darkness
Open your Heart, Join them from the start this is the army of darkness.

Darkness
Darkness
Darkness
Darkness
Track Name: To The End
Release me from this my cage
To ignite this subsiding rage

Try to obtain which you could not
All your dreams are dashed
Try to mourn what you have lost
Nothing comes to pass

Don’t let it, don’t let it pass
See the bloodshed in your eyes
Don’t let it fade, don’t let it cease
Let them hear your hate filled cries

Time will pass and scars will heal
But I’ll be here to the end
To the end
To the end
To the end

Now this rage I have obtained
I will not keep this contained

Feel the presence of another self
Shackles ripped from your mind
Tried to control by force of will
Now it is released

Don’t let it, don’t let it pass
See the bloodshed in your eyes
Don’t let it fade, don’t let it cease
Let them hear your hate filled cries

Time won't pass and scars won’t heal
But I’ll be here to the end
To the end
To the end
To the end
Track Name: The Gates Of Hades
The Gates of Hades are open wide
People screaming as the blood runs down their eyes
The red hot shackles, melting my flesh
Searing skin as the steal touches the bone

The Gates of Hades are open once again.
The path to the underworld, where demons drift and play
No time for the broken hearts it’s the evil that they fear

Hailing the dark prince on stony ground
Lashing whips across the back of every bow
The three headed dog, defends the gates
Snarling, biting he rips the men apart

The Gates of Hades are open once again.
The path to the underworld, where demons drift and play
No time for the broken hearts it’s the evil that they fear

Protect us from the devil dog
His teeth are gleaming white
Defender of the gates of hell
He’ll take your life tonight

The Gates of Hades are open wide
Virgins scream as the blood runs down there thighs
The clouded sky, strikes lightning bolts
Rising flames as the devil takes your soul
Feel the pain as his hand rips from your bones
Can’t you feel the rancid air spurt from your chest
You’re in hell now as your heart beats once again

The Gates of Hades are open once again.
The path to the underworld, where demons drift and play
No time for the broken hearts it’s the evil that they fear

Protect us from the devil dog
His teeth are gleaming white
Defender of the gates of hell
He’ll take your life tonight
Track Name: Waste Away
I See, The Sun
It Shines Upon Me
I Feel, The Rays
They Burn My Skin

I Feel, The Sun
Burn Me Away
I Feel, The Heat
Start Rising

I See What's Happening
The Earth Decay Away
I Feel The Heat Is Rising
I Start To Waste Away

The Rising Heat, Of The Earth
Is Melting The Ice Caps
The Ice It Lowers Down
And The Waters Rise

Look To, The Sky
The Clouds The Thicken
I Feel, The Heat
Waste Me Away

I See What's Happening
The Earth Decay Away
I Feel The Heat Is Rising
I Start To Waste Away

I See, The Sun
It Shines Upon Me
I Feel, The Rays
They Burn My Skin

I Feel, The Sun
Burn Me Away
I Feel, The Heat
Start Rising

I See What's Happening
The Earth Decay Away
I Feel The Heat Is Rising
I Start To Waste Away
I See What's Happening
The Earth Decay Away
I Feel The Heat Is Rising
I Start To Waste Away
