Sentinel 05:49
Really shows what we know We bend down to hear The calling for the rat The sound is ever so clear Running into the pack Ready to dance, ready to fail Ready to never go back Really shows what we know In the best of times Your pride is beginning to show Those victimless crimes Those lines we never told We tried some time ago We never got away The calling was a trap Slaves everyday Slaves under attack All night we hear The calling of the rat The fable of the bees The calling of the rat Sons of the rain It’s not what you know It sounds crystal clear Low vibrations Rippling away All night we hear the calling
Of Cinders 03:01
When you get to be the best bet But you lie just to take what’s mine With fear on your mind Lie again just to put me down I have a mind just to let you die Just run at the very last line And forget these times When you pour all the sand Through your fingers and on the floor Each grain is a pain You leave me stranded behind the door When you bring on the fire But our house is made of wood It probably won't be good Living in the ashes
Cardinal 04:26
Burning bodies inside Hanged down from the golden gallows Blowing on the last light Too scared to hunker down Crawling at midnight Probably never coming down Screaming on the inside You live in the shadows and then you die You hunt me down I seek you hide Just let me die Through the window rolling down Burning bodies inside No more than a crimson bottle Spilling over the ground Red tears flowing down We used to be a good wine We used to be pretty fucking cool Just like we said We stand watching on as the world just goes by Heed the fall Nothing more than running away
Prowler 03:05
Dead mold Head stone Go hard Steal some and then more Prowl the ground of Rome Believe what you know Past love, it’s not who you are Now then and again And against all odds You fight for all who fall and all who can’t prowl The ground of Rome Believe what you know Past love, it’s not who we were Dead goals
Rogue 04:05
You breathe life, into the body of the innocent Mindless beasts, bring the feast Feel the knife In the hand of the child He’s ready to go again To feel the pain It’s a mere defeat Brought right at your feet like a queen of shame A miserable reign Bring me the moon I’m just a coward afraid of the light I’ll soon embrace the doom Just a mild breeze, sharp cut to the heel I’ve seen the blood flow from the wound Feel the light leaving me to spread the curse of man into the wild King loves his affairs brought up to the throne Right up to the hills right up to the sky Closer to the sun, closer to the night Bring down the sun I’m just a man in need of a star I’m far from all the common melodies You hear when the nobles are close to the heart
Sacrilege 05:33
Rough sun burning away Last breath of a dying star Bring the void, share the emptiness Standing on the edge of the world In the dark we all look the same Warm breath breaking the ice A cold punch breaking the silence Weak faith, falling apart You look around and you see the world Bleak place, remember your life We tie a string around and we pray for the stars Ripe to fall down You’ll be the reason they’d fall Each god instilled into your mind
