Track Name: Darkland Awakening
I look over the darkland haze,
And I see so many souls ablaze,
And I feel myself enter the darkland haze,
Detained as I fail to see the light that points the way.

Retreat to dreams of another day,
Replace trust from along the way,
Define, collate, the thoughts profane,
Don’t look, don’t weep, pray hard to return again.

Holding onto the wasted land,
Holding onto the wasted faith,
Take away the imagery,
And let the hurt lead you on.

Embrace the fire that burns the flames that shine,
Retrace the steps of Gods that lead to heaven,
Hell in sight, the burning kingdom draws me in,
The angels plead but I’m taken by the promises of sin,
Perverse, undignified, unpure,
Don’t look, don’t weep, pray hard, to go far away.

Fleeting thoughts conjure up the darkest notions,
Plague my dreams and invade my conscious when I’m waking,
Pacify apparitions far and wide that cross my path,
And leave me standing cold and shaking,
Scared and ashamed as I beg for reprieve,
Closed in, condemned, pray hard to return.

Don’t look, don’t weep, go back, go far away.

Holding onto the wasted land,
Holding onto the wasted faith,
Take away the imagery,
And let the hurt lead you on.

Pray Hard.
Track Name: Haborym
The dead domain,
Where dead don’t hear their bay,
Where dead don’t see their fountain laid to waste.

Pray at this wall, I dream of sanctuary,
A feral voice, the scent of,

Haborym, Haborym.

Rosicrucians burning,
They’re at the door.

I hear him call the angels to their feet,
Lay down your soul,
The hell of,

Haborym, Haborym.
Track Name: A Prayer For The Kindred
Sympathize for the suffering hearts,
For the weeping children on their knees,
Shedding tears of discontent.
With hollow eyes,
And hollow minds,
You clench your hands and start to pray,
For the life God took away.

Only sorrow obstructs your sense of reason,
Belief intensifies,
Haunted by the fear of treason,
A blind faith unjustified.

Always falling in the line of fire,
Always falling in the line of fire,
And the harrowing tales of a harrowing nature,
Will clear your mind and cleanse your soul,
Of confidence and self esteem,
Try to think for yourself,
Before you’re stripped of your pride.

Believe of suffer the consequence,
Don’t heed that warning,
What they preach is lies, all lies.

You thank the lord for the gift of life,
And curse the devil for the hurt and pain,
Confess your sins to the greatest sinner,
As he washes the blood from his hands.
Worship anything remotely holy,
Hold sacred in your hands the sign of the cross,
This God forsaken world with its holy laws,
These God forsaken times,
This God forsaken life of mine.
Track Name: Pre-Dawn Hours
From the depths of the deepest ocean,
I’m cast under her spell.

And in the pre-dawn hours,
She disappears,
And in the pre-dawn hours,
My memory fades away,
And in the cold dark room,
My senses overheat,
And in the pre-dawn hours she’s gone.

In the light of the darkest moment,
She appears in the soundest sleep,
When in the kingdom of dreams,
My evil seductress is queen.

From the depths of the deepest ocean,
I’m cast under her spell,
In the wake of the fearless night,
The pressures lifting,
And I discover I’m escaping her grip.

And she’s calling me, and she’s calling me, can you hear her?
And she’s calling me, and she’s calling me to join her.
And she’s calling me, and she’s calling me,
To join her in her place of rest,
And she’s calling me,
And she’s begging me,
To join her in her place of rest.
