Track Name: Embers And Ashes
Embers And Ashes

Within the company of wolves
Is where we lie
As cities burn against
A haunting wounded sky
From the embers and ashes
Scars of tomorrow starts
With blood on our hands
And fire in our hearts

As the city sleeps
We'll raise an empire
And the nights will flame with fire
Until our dying days
We'll burn the heavens
Before we expire
And the nights will flame with fire
Until our dying days

Atop these burning bridges
As our voices crack the sky
We are dead to the world
But we refuse to die
From the embers and ashes
Our shadows turn to dust
As the stars fade into the dawn
And the lights go down inside our hearts

Under the explosions in the sky
We'll build our fleet
Feel deaths hot breath
As the flames lick at our feet
Bleed the sickness from our hearts
Till the blood bleeds dry
And the nights will flame with fire
Until our dying days
Track Name: Suffer The Sorrow
Suffer The Sorrow

Like Ghosts our shadows rise and fall
From crown and throne we disenthrall
Burning flags to once we swore
For suffering what we abhor
Hold tight to our hopes we cling
Below the vultures circling
Like hungry jackals scavenging
Clawing at the door

On fear is what we're fed
Seditions how we're bred
We suffer the sorrow
We suffer the sorrow
And from our hearts we bled
Our nation under hatred
We suffer the sorrow
We suffer the sorrow

The diadems torn from their chest
As we laid to their eternal rest
Amidst the fetor and decay
Under Solemn skies of grey
Every grave we ever filled
Every drop of blood we spilled
Like starving wolves salivating
Circling our prey

Until forever ends
Mired in the fields of flames and fears
As our prayers fall like tears
But our sorrow flows like crashing waves
We're casting shadows over graves
As we watch the world go down in flames
Track Name: Hold Tight Hope
Hold Tight Hope

On our prison walls
We carve the days away
We sleep still in the fire
As the graves we forge decay
Lick our wounds
Where our shadows fall
To wash away our scars
Give us grace for Androcles
To pull the thorn out from our hearts

The fire in our hearts
Is what keeps us alive
What matters most
Is how we survive

In Squalor and decay
False flags burning away
Still we hold tight hope
Still we hold tight hope
Suppress the dissident
Fan the flames of discontent
Still we hold tight hope
Still we hold tight hope

With our blistered hands
Bloodied knees, crooked spines
We march blindfolded
To our darkest days
Where no light shines
Light the torches
Tip the scales
The flames burning bright
Like wolves stalking sheep
We'll bide our time before we strike

We stand our ground for past times we preferred
We are the ones whose voices scream to be heard
We are lambs for lions
Led bleeding and blind
Still we hold tight hope
Still we hold tight hope
Track Name: Birth Of A Nation
Birth Of A Nation

Under the yoke of scars and prison bars
Igniting flames beneath the stars
Amidst the tears that never dry
Choking smoke on cold winds blow
As ashes seem to flow like snow
Eclipse the burning blood red sky

We are the bruised and broken
We will not be forgotten

We are all we have no Liberation
We are the Birth of a nation
We are the uprising insurrection
We are the Birth of a nation

As heavens burns boiling blood churns
While storms rage the world still turns
Emblematic till the blood runs dry
The flames circulate as our voices resonate
Under the veil of a bible black starless sky
Track Name: Of Fear And Flames
Of Fear And Flames

Under burning skies
Or dissent still holding sway
As the wolves keep circling
Around their dying prey
In fear and flames
Lie graves with no names
In ruins that remains
Under our deluge
Of fear and flames

Counting crows
That nest upon our gallows
To crown the end
To crown the end
In the Ashes we remain
With flags we set aflame
To crown the end
To crown the end

As funeral fires burn
With the sweet smell of decay
Amidst hungry jackals
Leading lions to their dying prey
In fear and flames
Like ghosts on Scorched terrains
Blood boiling through our veins
Under our deluge
Of fear and flames
Track Name: Voices Of The Vicious
Voices Of The Vicious

Amidst the carrion our stomachs churn
Time is the fire in which we burn
With heads unbowed to flags worn and frayed
To our dissent we cling to
In sadness and sorrow we crawl through
As we count down to our end of days enslaved

With our hands over our head
We are the walking woundead
We are the voices of the vicious history
Our canticle swells through prison cells
We are the shadows of ourselves
We are the voices of the vicious history

As heavens fall our voices soar
Of melancholy burdons bore
Infests the night and enrobes our darkest days
Torn by time
Drowned in tears
We rise like lions without fears
With hearts that harbour hope
As our shadows fade away

In shadows and despair
Our voices rise on aching air
Burning flags raised to our unrest
We're swarming
Crawling to infest

We are the voices of the vicious history
Track Name: Salvation
Salvation

As cinders fade on frosted ground
Above the ravens circle round
A haunting dirge that embodies misery
Walked by spirits at our sides
Our graves fated pilgrim shrines
Our hopes and fears born out of tragedy

Under haunting skies that shroud
Our heads bloody but unbowed
We salivate for salvation, salvation
We are the voice you can't confine
The chill crawling down your spine
We salivate for salvation

With our breath we fan the flames
As fog falls o'er time beaten graves
With embers aglow on unburthen'd air our voices grow
Our liberty in requiem
Like sky and stars to prisoned men
Our elegy to nepenthe
Our mourning sorrow
Track Name: Dancing On A Burning Ship
Dancing On A Burning Ship

Hold your hand over the candle
Feel the skin against the flame
Hold tight, close your eyes
Until you cant feel the pain
Till the scars that cripple our hearts
Slowly disappears
We've been dancing on a burning ship for all these years
Who oh oh

Dreams of death as the cancer
Eats away through your veins
We are dead in the water
As we drown in the flames
The air in our lungs
Slowly disappears
We've been dancing on a burning ship for all these years

Broken wings we can't fly
In the flames where we lie
Lay down, lay down by me
Sleep as our scars erase
In eternal embrace
Lay down, lay down by me

Hold your hand over the candle
Feel the skin against the flame
Hold tight, close your eyes
Until you cant feel the pain
From the wreckage of the storm
We shed no tears
We've been dancing on a burning ship for all these years
Who oh oh
