Track Name: Traitor
Order called

Welcome to this court room today
We're sentencing this soul here today
He's on trial for heresy we say
His life must end to fix the human race

This traitor walks among us
Spreading all his lies
This traitor walks among us
Spreading all those lies

He speaks out at orders that we've lain
He can't control his tongue he's insane
This courtroom will sentence him today
This can't go on he has got to die

This traitor walks among us
Spreading all his lies
This traitor walks among us
We'll sentence him to die

Now I've got one more chance for you to take
You've the chance to save yourself, know what's at stake
I know what you've done but I can not control
Stand by my side and we will throw this all away

Where's your loyalty lie?
There's a place right by my side
Where's your loyalty lie?
There's a place right by my side

This traitor walks among us
Spreading all his lies
This traitor walks among us
We've sentenced him to die
Track Name: The Dark Tower
The Gunslinger walks through the sands in to the dawn
A silhouette carved out of stone rises above

The Dark Tower waits
The things I forsake
I can't take the blame for the things I've done
I can't walk away
This thing is unchained
I don't want to be so far away

The Crimson King, eater of worlds, atop his throne
Devising Discordia to remake the world

The Dark Tower waits
The things I forsake
I can't take the blame for the things I've done
I can't walk away
This thing is unchained
I don't want to be so far away
Track Name: Dead Mountain
A big mistake led to their fate
A world unknown, a tale untold

Out from the darkness in to the light
See the darkness calling
Surrounding dead there is no escape
Step inside of the

Shadow of Dead Mountain
Where the evil came to be
(Out from the darkness in to the light)
Shadow of Dead Mountain
Still a mystery to this day

Expedition trail, the final nail
Compelling force, death or a curse?

Out from the darkness in to the light
See the darkness calling
Surrounding dead there is no escape
Step inside of the

Shadow of Dead Mountain
Where the evil came to be
(Out from the darkness in to the light)
Shadow of Dead Mountain
Still a mystery to this day
Track Name: The Nameless One
Say my name, taste of fear becoming
Go insane, seas of blood are falling

Say my name, wings of death before thee
Call my name, taste of fear

Scream my name, taste of fear becoming
Go insane, say my name

Say my name, look to the sky that's falling
Call my name, call in vein

Scream my name, hand of death befalls thee
Call my name, scream in pain

Scream my name, end of the world before thee
Scream my name, taste the fear
Track Name: Eyes of Deceit
Locked away and thrown away the key
my foresight's all that I've seen
Life's restriction, no fame or addiction
a prophet or madness is me
Otherwise blinded, but not absent minded
the visions are all I can see
Terror, destruction, gore and seduction
is this what is going to be?

Circling madness I see visions around me
All I can see is what I don't want to be
Screaming within, I can't take any more

Shackled in chains, my body is estranged
my mind is all that is free
In darkness comes fire, free pass for a liar
a puppet master pulling the strings
A fight for resources, no cars and no horses
I see a shell of what used to be
A future depiction, is all of this fiction?
What the hell does all of this mean?

Circling madness I see visions around me
All I can see is what I don't want to be
Screaming within, I can't take any more

My eyes are blazing but none of it's fading,
return me to the blackness I seek
Horror, sickness, plaguing the weakest,
the rotting of the corpses to be
Excuse is religion for destroying a region
using fear to meet their own needs
No wonder I'm in here, no witness to my fear
I hope this is some madness in me

Circling madness I see visions around me
All I can see is what I don't want to be
Screaming within, I can't take any more

Returning darkness, no more visions to bind me
All I can see is blindness stricken to me
Peaceful within, I couldn't take any more
Track Name: The Evil Within
Terror awakens the hatred and anger of man
The streets running red with the blood of the dead
Maniacal ideals are taking their toll
Retaliation, the countdown has begun

Horrify, Terrify, Genocide, Sacrifice

The media frenzies, a social regime
Tongues lashing wildly, they spread the disease
Censor the weak as they cry with their pleas
The real question is, what have we become?

Horrify, Terrify, Genocide, Sacrifice

Wild fires ravage the world, ignorance seems like bliss
The hunt for the game, for sport turned to fame
Death and destruction, we leave in our wake
Extinction a crime, when is it our time?

Horrify, Terrify, Genocide, Sacrifice

Horrify the world with actions beyond belief
Proving we are set to destroy ourselves
We are setting the tide for our young to follow
See our sons and daughters dying since birth

Governments rise and fall, the innocent doomed to fail
Money plays the power game, a devil's toy for sale
Fight for a country, thrown away for another day
Humanities bind is the evil within

Where will we end up when we start to get down the line?
The tyranny of greed, and lust to succeed
We must pick ourselves up there's good in us all
Can we all change before we all fall?
Track Name: Journey's End
May of '37, the craft it soars
Second year of flight, to their delight
Boston on the morn' of what we won't soon forget
Headwinds slow the flight for landing at
Lakehurst before night, they set a course
for Manhattan's skies, unaware of what's soon to come

See the flames start rising
From the pride of the skies
As it joins the R101 on the page
See the tears from crying
Oh the humanity
This is how the end of an era came to be

Seven of the night, a flying moor
to the mooring mast, its final plight
Standard procedure before the ending unfolds
Igniting of gas the airship became
engulfed in flames, a shell remains
End of airship flight was decided after this night

See the flames start rising
From the pride of the skies
As it joins the R101 on the page
See the tears from crying
Oh the humanity
This is how the end of an era came to be
