Spire 04:36
Towards the end they march Crossing smoldering remains Leave nothing behind Battalions of death On their way Build up the hatred And you will see The devastation lies ahead Now ravage and destroy The fire burns Pass the threshold Laying waste In the spire The smoke rises A stench of death Fading away Leave nothing behind Build up the hatred And you will see The devastation lies ahead Now ravage and destroy The fire burns The barren land Scarred Blown to shreds Only ashes remain A distant rider Across the heights It is the downfall The earth cracks open With everlasting flame In the spire Confronting their fate

On the edge The point of no return There is no escape From a cruel reality Treading on A mist now descends Hidden well Is there any substance Looking for An offer of salvation While others fall And I see them crawl The question remains Will anybody ever learn The electric winds Are calling my name Beneath the surface Always something to learn The great one knows And he sees it all These words of wisdom There is no escape The cure is found With an all seeing eye Telling the truth The way now opens Beneath the surface Always something to learn The great one knows And he sees it all These words of wisdom There is no escape    The riddle Open the gates I see others fall Lost in the haze Unsolved secrets Rhymes from ancient times A fierce storm gathers There is no return Beneath the surface Always something to learn The great one knows And he sees it all These words of wisdom There is no escape   Beneath the blackened sky Hear them call your name

The Circle 05:03
Endless greed Corrupted soul Empty promises Just acting alone Keep spreading lies Feel justified Misleading words They mean nothing And you will hear Only silence Without a meaning Into the circle As others stand aside The madness shines In the end there is nothing Nothing to rely on Always looking for a way out Burn the bridges There is only defiance And you will hear Only silence Without a meaning Into the circle As others stand aside The madness shines

Crypt 05:24
There is a chamber Where evil grows Heralds of misery Dwell in sorrow Arcane illusions Walls painted in black Formed in darkness Evoke the vision Behold the signs And feel the void The shadow rises Covered in secrecy In this cell Denied and cast aside Eternal crypt Forever lost and gone No salvation Unholy gathering A desolate pit calls Where the dead roam Empty hollow The cursed are howling Screaming for relief Invoking the damned Behold the signs And feel the void The shadow rises Covered in secrecy In this cell Denied and cast aside Eternal crypt Forever lost and gone Trying to reach out And seek redemption There is not a shred of hope Behold the signs And feel the void The shadow rises Covered in secrecy In this cell Denied and cast aside Eternal crypt Forever lost and gone

Reckoning 05:21
Alone I stand Watching them burn The ruins are drenched in sorrow The wings of death With a dark embrace I have witnessed it all Walk the earth Across this barren land There is nothing No more to been seen Traces of despair Pain and fear Cries echo in the dark And now it's cold The reality lies in state I've seen cities rise and fall The reckoning has arrived It is here We have reached the point Winds of death Flattening the paradise Call forth the doom Eclipse the scene A final embrace And now it's cold The reality lies in state I've seen cities rise and fall The reckoning has arrived Among the ruins Of this world We have been sent adrift So far away Floating In oblivion Despair  Eclipse the sun

The Chosen 04:30
Gather the storm Into the struggle Relentless formation Advised by greed We are the chosen Holding the flame The walls are coming down Many will fall This endless calling Ones without fear We are carrying the flame We are the legions of fire Arise And we will judge them all Carrying the torch In the dark A mark of the chosen Holding the flame This endless calling Ones without fear We are carrying the flame Advised by greed We are the chosen Now the legions  Arise Gather the storm Into the struggle Relentless formation Advised by greed We are the chosen Carrying the flame The endless calling We are the ones without fear
7.
A Tall Order 04:51
In the final moments Of this suffering Looking for a way out Against the grain Tall order lies ahead Waiting for something Into unknown We are following the mark It’s a long way to go This won't be put on hold The despair grows But to concede No way at all Only vanity prevails Is there anything to gain And who would pay the price Now I know What happened there Only bringing endless pain Deception hits like a hammer A creation cold as ice Is there a way Out from this place Against all odds A cold reality We are following the mark It’s a long way to go Now I know What happened there Only bringing endless pain Deception hits like a hammer A creation cold as ice

At dawn Beginning of the dying Everything is unknown We can't foresee the end Now as the mist keeps falling Over this hidden domain Seething anger Echoes of fearful cries This is your final chance Rely on feeble tries On the ledge Staring at our downfall Darkness consumes the earth Weak souls are forced deeper Engulfed in flames Without fear one might survive Covering the sky Feel the endless pain We are sent adrift Looking for more The bridge awaits For those prepared Don't yield to this plague With delusion Some bound to fail Descend into nothing Yet looking for more It is never late Follow the shining Don't write it off Or smother the way These open skies Enlighten the darkness The bridge awaits Accept this chance And down there Among the lost souls Dwelling in the shadows The time is running out Have you chosen the way It won't be that easy While you are staring down from the ledge Only words don't matter You'd better start moving Those cast aside Will never see the light At dawn Beginning of the dying Everything is unknown We can't foresee the end Darkness consumes the earth Weak souls are forced deeper Engulfed in flames Without fear one might survive The bridge awaits For those prepared Don't yield to this plague With delusion Some bound to fail Descend into nothing Yet looking for more Covering the sky Feel the endless pain We are sent adrift Looking for more We are sent Looking for more
