about

All the songs were written over the course of many years. Some of the actual takes are years old, this album could be a compilation of the last few years of my song writing. Putting in countless hours of blood, sweat and tears into this album has been my pleasure.

Track Name: Blind Wolf
(Verse 1)
Tearing my way through the snow and the hail
My heart cannot take time to rest
Pursued by this madman I cannot believe
My life, has boiled down to this

For years and years I have tried and I've failed
To seek a light beyond abyss
He shot me with his cross, he cursed me with his lies
And now he's damned us all until the end of time

(Verse 2)
Seeking the truth that is buried in my mind
I swear, I've been here before
To look up to the stars and to see the light
There's nothing that I miss more

He hunted me down and he killed my kin
And cut from me my very eyes
Now he pursues what he can't understand
For greed? Perhaps he's been fed a lie

(Chorus)
Running through eternal darkness
Searching for questions unknown
To seek the truth in this mortal life,
The hunter he fears what he does not know

(Bridge)
Hunter... hunter...

(Chorus)
Running through eternal darkness
Searching for questions unknown
To seek the truth in this mortal life,
The hunter he fears what he does not know
He tried to stop my endless quest for truth,
The ultimate enemy of the

hunter...hunter... hunter... blind wolf.
Track Name: Exiled
(Verse 1)
Freedom, is the prize they want
Corruption, many minds have failed
Triumph, over everything
Traitor, and they accuse me?

(Chorus 1)
In my life I've always tried
Innocents are taken so far from home

Sometimes I feel that we're not right anymore
And now I feel it could be like this forevermore

To find my freedom I must take off from this place
A traitor I'll be, will they disguise my fate?

A searing inferno will cast its doubt on me

(Verse 2)
Freedom, is the prize they lost
Corruption, all our minds have failed
Triumph, over nothing
Traitor, and they accuse me?

(Chorus 2)

Sometimes I feel that we're not right anymore
And now I feel it could be like this forevermore

To find my freedom I must take off from this place
A traitor I'll be, will they disguise my fate?

A searing inferno will cast its doubt on me
Track Name: The Price I Pay
(verse 1)
My body shakes in fear
Life is slipping from my grasp
The seeds I tried to sow
My deeds they'll never know

(Chorus)
For vengeance I will go
From hell into the unknown
Only stars light my way
Revenge, and the price I pay

(verse 2)
The fortunate will dwell in their dreams
Unaware of the storm that's approaching
I see them, they're just a disease
Scourge that needs to be wiped clean

(Chorus)

(verse 3)
Some day they will see
What they really did to me
Their lives are just a disease
A failed experiment to blind to be

(Chorus)
For vengeance I will go
From hell into the unknown
But the moon illuminates me
And what I failed to be
Track Name: Soul Bleed
(Verse 1)
[Scott]
Souls come screaming to me
[Cody]
Within your sleep your mind is free
[Scott]
My hands try to block my ears
[Cody]
Come my child there's nothing to fear
[Scott]
An icy hand grasps my spine
[Cody]
Within this world you are so blind
[Scott]
Tonight... I'll stand, I'll fight, I'll defeat their kind

Voids invade my dreaming mind
[Cody]
Within you now our fates entwined
[Scott]
My heart tries to outrun my fears
[Cody]
Can't you tell your prison is here?
[Scott]
How to stop your tormenting me?
[Cody]
You're in control, you hold the key
[Scott]
My mind, they invade... they set my dreams aflame

(Chorus)
Liars in my head
[Cody]
I'll fill your soul with dread
[Scott]
Fighting for my life, I'm fighting my own mind
The wrath they place on me
[Cody]
In your heart, your soul bleeds

(Verse 2)
[Scott]
How do I fight this curse?
[Cody]
Just give in or we'll make it worse
[Scott]
I try to hold by my tears
[Cody]
Just let it out there's nothing to fear
[Scott]
The shadow you cast on me
[Cody]
Don't resist now, it will set you free
[Scott]
These words... a poison a flame they'll lead me astray

Subjugation of my mind
[Cody]
It's all part of our design
[Scott]
And darkness, is imprisoning me
[Cody]
You knew the price, you'll pay the fee
[Scott]
My soul will never fall in line
[Cody]
You'll conform to our design
[Scott]
You'll try, but you know you'll never take me alive

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
[Scott]
Bridge to the other side
A motif on a blighted mind
Conduit of nightmares past
The final die has been cast

Light the torch to feed the flame
A possessed tongue has no shame
Giving into their wicked ways
My prize will be their highest praise

[Cody]
Give up, no chance for tomorrow
A void of constant sorrow
In lifetimes that have passed
None have escaped our wrath

(Verse 3)
[Scott]
Darkness has taken me
[Cody]
How does it feel to be free?
[Scott]
Succumbed to their wicked ways
[Cody]
For this you get our highest praise
[Scott]
Was I too weak for restraint?
[Cody]
Our gift is only for the brave
[Scott]
The power I feel, I know it cannot be real

Ethereal spectres haunting me
[Cody]
Your heart was a bad disease
[Scott]
But there's no light in my soul
[Cody]
Where it was we have left a hole
[Scott]
Will I regret this life?
[Cody]
You'll find out when you pick up the knife
[Scott]
I'll try, but I know I cannot make it out alive

(Chorus)
Demons in my head
[Cody]
We filled your soul with dread
[Scott]
I'm giving up my life, I've given up my mind
God can you hear my cries?
[Cody]
In your heart, your soul dies
Track Name: Fly
(Verse 1)
The world hinders on the edge of days
And time splinters for the ones without a name

When the world is staring down the bringers of the next life
We'll see the truth hidden in the ashes of our lies

Cities crawling on their knees
Hysteria spreading like a disease
The once ignored will now be sought
People will face it like it or not

The giver of life is now your reaper
The cost, I can't imagine one steeper
Pray to your gods while you have the time
We both know your ignorance was your crime

(Chorus)
Fly
Go on and take to the sky
The burden you hold makes you divine
Our fears, our hopes, our essence with you must survive

We'll fly
Through cosmic seas and midnight sky
Without you our race would fade and die
Our planet is lost, our hopes and dreams take to the sky

(Verse 2)
See the stars, floating out in space
Our hope is out there, a chance for our race

We ignored the signs of what was coming
Now our people are lost, and left and dying

Cities crawling on their knees
Hysteria spreading like a disease
The once ignored will now be sought
People will face it like it or not

The giver of life is now your reaper
The cost, I can't imagine one steeper
Pray to your gods while you have the time
We both know your ignorance is your crime

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
So, where do we go?
Where do we fly?
So deep in the sky... will we die?

In search of new hope
Our planet's behind
Our futures alive
...so deep in the sky

(Chorus)
Track Name: Eternal Sleep
(Verse 1)
The sun goes down today
I wish for another tomorrow
All the colors, they fade away
As winter takes hold of my world

For now I know I was too slow
Lost in time my future's near
Tried so hard to quell my fear

Sunlight caress my face
Frozen in another sleep
Go away, I'm in too deep

(Chorus)
So I reside
In this place, in the neon sky
But tonight
I will find, my dreams take flight

(Verse 2)
If I try to make it through the night
Lost souls will not come here
Spinning fast, but I'm so near

Find out what life's all about
Last chance I'll disappear
I'll go away, I'll leave here

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
I am lost in my own mind
A prison I cannot hide
My body feels so refined
And there's a fear I can't define

Why should I
Rise to a world of desperate sin
If in my mind I know I'll win

In my dreams I can feel you
Try, to separate your body and mind
But your soul is lost like mine

(Chorus)
So I reside
In this place, in the neon sky
But tonight
I will find, my dreams take flight

Now I can see
What I was meant to be
So tonight you may find
Your world is less than mine
Track Name: Confrontation
(Verse 1)
[Read]
Through thought and time we'll find a place
Where a man can vanish without a trace
A lapse in physical space and time
Where the whole universe is defined

[Scott]
And now in darkness we congregate
The last traitors of a forgotten race
With no solid sense of time
Where the whole universe is defined

[Read]
Old hatreds will run deep
Beneath the ash of our history
Tearing down like a fallen star
Reveal the demon, that you are

[Scott]
If you dare to challenge me
I'll claim your soul, I'll set you free

[Read]
Though it hurts my mind to try
I will kill you for all mankind

[Read]
I've got hope on my side
[Scott]
I've got fury on my side

(Chorus)
[Read]
Take my soul, take my life
[Scott]
Feed my pride, I'll bleed your mind
[Read]
I will fight the fear inside
[Scott]
If you try, you'll eat my knife

(Verse 2)
[Scott]
We'll come through the curtains of your dreams
Fulfilling our last prophecy
Bring down the righteous and the damned
We hold your fate in our hands

[Read]
If you come in my lucid dreams
I'll fight you all, I'll set you free
I'll travel through both space and time
To where the universe is defined

[Scott]
Hide behind your puny walls
The ones I lead will hear my call
And we'll rise from your oppressive race
We'll kill you all without disgrace

[Read]
Lay down your arms and cast aside
This hate has taken so many lives

[Scott]
You'll never see me bow again
And blood will spill, I'll make amends

[Read]
I've got light on my side
[Scott]
I've got darkness on my side

(Chorus)
[Read]
Take my soul, take my life
[Scott]
Feel my pride, I'll damn the light
[Read]
I will fight the fear inside
[Scott]
If you try, I'll end your life

(Bridge)

[Read]
Soulless damned, I'll take your life
[Scott]
I'll claim your soul, I'll take what's mine

(Chorus)
[Read]
Take my soul, take my life
[Scott]
Feed my pride, I'll bleed your mind
[Read]
I will fight the fear inside
[Scott]
If you try, you'll be redefined
Track Name: At Last
(Verse 1)
Down from the sky
Lives torn away
From this place
I try to hide my face

The Reich is near
The shadow holds clear
Come my way,
At last I'll betray

(Verse 2)
The wall of sanity is torn and destroyed
Can you hear the voice from the void?
Lives are lost, in torture we gain
A final hope, a break in the chain

(Verse 3)
I wait for you
The time draws near
I see right through
Your will is ever clear

At last our time
The Reich is at hand
Set your sights
Don't fret, trust the blind
Track Name: Last Victory
(Verse 1)
Twilight comes again
For the sun needs rest
For now I'll sing my tune
If for no one but the moon

So I've tempted fate
In my last disgrace
For now I'll sing my tune
For dawn is coming soon

(Chorus 1)
In my thoughts
In my mind
I know it will go for all time

In my soul
Frigid I know
I know I must leave you behind

(Verse 2)
Come with me across the sea
Did you think you'd understand?
Its a dream, not what it seems
Can you even comprehend?

No goodbyes, its a lie
Is it really in my head?
Fortune's fall shadowed all
As she fell beneath the sea

In my bars, I will starve
Is this how I'll pay my fee?
The hangman's tie awaits my life
Through death, the will set me free

Come with me across the sea
Will they ever set me free?
No goodbyes, its a lie
Will they ever set me free?

(Chorus 2)
In my thoughts
In my mind
I know it will go for all time

In my soul
Frigid I know
I know I must leave you behind

Tomorrow falls
The hangman calls
My mind turns to dreams of the sea

My final stand
Their last demand
My end, my last victory

(Bridge)

(Verse 3)
Morning comes again
For the moon needs rest
For now I'll sing my tune
I know my end is coming soon

So I've tempted fate
In my last disgrace
For now I'll sing my tune
As I'm dragged out to the noose

(Final Chorus)
