Track Name: Engage
“I AM THE WHISPER, I AM THE WITNESS…
I AM THE ONE WHO DIVIDES…
I AM ALL EMOTIONS FLOWING FROM ALL SIDES…
I AM THE SHADOW OF HOPE…
I AM THE END OF ALL LIFE…
I AM THE ONE WHO WILL SHOW YOU THE LIGHT…
I AM THE ONE WHO WILL DECEIVE YOU ALL…
I AM WITH SICKNESS WITHIN YOU…
I AM THE ONE WHO CALLS IN THE NIGHT.”
Track Name: Arc of Descension
WHISPERS IN THE CALMING…OUR WORLD WILL SOON DIVIDE…
DEVOTED KIN, THE STRUGGLE WITHIN…
ALL THIS WAITS INSIDE…

WITNESS TO THE DARKNESS…WATCHING OUR FATHER DIE…
THIS IS THE END…NOW WHERE TO BEGIN?
KNOWING NO ONE WILL SURVIVE…

I HAVE COME TO HELP YOU…TO HOLD YOU…TO EASE YOU…
ALWAYS DEVOTED AM I.

AND THE BRIDGES ARE BURNING…
AND THE DEMON IS TURNING…
AND THE SICKNESS IS GROWING…
AND THE CONFLICT IS BUILDING…
THE DESCENSION OF ALL THAT WILL BE…
THE DESCENSION OF THEE…

THE DESCENSION OF ALL THAT WILL BE…
THIS INFECTING DISEASE…
THE DESCENSION OF EVERYTHING…
IS CALLING TO ME…

“I AM HERE, BROKEN AND ALONE, STAYED THE BATTLE, BUT IT’S ONLY JUST BEGUN…”
Track Name: Divisions
CIRCLES ARE DIVIDING INTO NOTHING…
INTO SPACES FILLED WITH DARKNESS…
FILLED WITH WOUNDS AND TREACHERY…

CAN YOU CHOOSE YOUR SIDES FROM TRUTH AND LIES?
IN DARK DIVIDE…
THIS IS THE LAST TIME THAT WE WILL… THAT WE WILL UNITE...

CALLING FROM THE OCEANS IN THE NOTION TO DENY…

RICHES TURN TO SPOIL AND BURN LIKE OIL IN THIS DECEIT…
ALL THAT WAS TO BE IS LOST IN GREED AND DISBELIEF…

I TOLD YOU…
I WARNED YOU…
DECEIVE YOU…

COLLIDING…
DIVIDING…
IN HIDING…

“FALL ON YOUR KNEES”
“KEEP YOUR STRENGTH”
‘HONOR ME!”
Track Name: Blu-Elysium
“MAY YOU LIVE FOREVER IN THE MINDS AND
HEARTS OF THOSE WHOSE LIVES YOU TOUCHED”
Track Name: October
BITTER, DENIAL
DEJECTED, DESPAIR
GRIEVING, DISTRESS
SORROW, PAIN
MOURNING, DEFENSELESS
HELPLESS, ALONE

A WIDOW AWAITS…
THE CROWD WILL WITNESS THESE FINAL DAYS…
THE CHILDREN IN TEARS…
ALL THAT WE SEE IS FADING AWAY…
HIS SUFFERING STAYS…
ALL THAT WE KNOW WE MUST BESTOW…

BROKEN, DEVOTION
LOVE, COMPASSION
AFFECTION, ACCEPTANCE
INDIFFERENCE, CONFUSED
CONFESSION, FOUNDATION
COMFORT, RELIEF

A WIDOW IS BORN…
THE CROWD GATHERS IN A SOMBER EMBRACE…
THE CHILDREN ARE TORN…
ALL THAT YOU’VE SEEN IS PART HIS GRACE…
HIS SUFFERING GONE…
ALL THAT IS KNOWN IS ALL YOU WERE SHOWN…

“WHERE ARE YOU NOW, WHAT HAS BECOME OF YOU?”
“WHY WON’T YOU RECOGNIZE YOUR LIES?”
“YOU ARE ONLY A SHADOW OF A MAN”

“IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN YOU, I ALWAYS KNEW.”
“I’M SO PROUD OF YOU, I’VE ALWAYS LOVED YOU.”
“I WILL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU.”
Track Name: The Calming
“EVERYTHING GOES AWAY…EVERYTHING WE WERE…EVERYTHING WE WILL BE…”
“EVERYTHING GOES AWAY…EVERYTHING WE ARE…EVERYTHING WE SEE…”

JUST DAYS AWAY NOW… THE CALMING HAS ARRIVED…
WE COUNT THE HOURS…NO TURNING BACK…

THIS IS THE TIME… WE ARE ALL AROUND YOU…
BUT WHERE IS THE SON?
WHERE IS THE SON?
Track Name: The Course of Afflictions
LIE…
YOUR LIES ARE DEFINED BY…YOUR LACK OF FIDELITY…AND I WILL NOT TOLERATE YOUR CLAIMS…

LIE…
ALL YOUR HYPOCRISY…THE BRIDGE IS STILL BURNING…AND YOU LIGHT THE WAY…

LIE…
YOU GAVE US A WORLD OF LIES…YOUR PROMISES CRUCIFIED IN EVERY WORD THAT YOU SAY…

LOOK IN HIS EYES AND THEN YOU WILL SEE…
A BLANKET OF LIES…A SCORE OF DECEIT…

THIS IS THE END OF YOUR COURSE OF AFFLICTIONS…
AND THIS IS THE END OF OUR VAIN INQUISITION…
NO MORE CAN YOU TAKE WHAT WAS GIVEN TO ME…
NO MORE CAN YOU SHOW US THIS FALSE IDENTITY…
“WELCOME TO YOUR FINAL DESTINATION…”
“BY YOUR HANDS AND BY YOUR GREED…
YOU WILL SUFFER AND YOU WILL BLEED…”
Track Name: The Struggle
THE LINES ARE DRAWN AGAINST THE WALL, THOUGH YOU CANNOT SEE…
THE FACES ARE HIDING INSIDE THIS WICKED DREAM…
TURNING WITHIN YOU…SLOWLY CONSUMING…
WE FIGHT OUR WAY THROUGH THIS LIFE AS IMMINENT AS THIS SEEMS…

AS WE WATCH THE STRUGGLE…WE WAIT FOR THE DAY…
THE LIGHT OF HOPE IS SHINING…THE LIGHT WILL LEAD THE WAY…

SOMETHING IS CHANGING WITHIN ME, EVERYTHING, ALL MY LIFE, ALL MY LOVE…
ALL MY FEARS HAVE SHOWN THEMSELVES, DENIAL, DESPERATION…
IS THIS WHERE I’M SUPPOSED TO BE…
IS THIS THE END OF EVERYTHING, IS THIS THE END OF ME?

THE SLOW DECLINE, THE AGING MIND, THE MEMORIES ARE LOST IN TIME...
THIS PLACE IS OLD…SO COLD…SO CONFINED…
BURNING WITHIN YOU…SLOWLY CONSUMING…
WE FIGHT OUR WAY THROUGH THIS LIFE AS IMMINENT AS THIS SEEMS…

AS WE WATCH THE STRUGGLE…WE WAIT FOR THE DAY…
THE LIGHT OF HOPE IS FADING…THE LIGHT WILL BURN AWAY…

SOMETHING IS CHANGING WITHIN ME, EVERYTHING, ALL MY LIFE, ALL MY LOVE…
ALL MY FEARS HAVE SHOWN THEMSELVES, DENIAL, DESPERATION…
IS THIS WHERE I’M SUPPOSED TO BE…
IS THIS THE END OF EVERYTHING, IS THIS THE END OF ME?

“WE HAD A DREAM THAT ALL THIS WASN’T REAL…
WE HAD A VISION OF OUR EVERYTHING…
WE HAD A DREAM OF THE FUTURE AHEAD…
AND ALL WE SEE IS A MEMORY…
A MEMORY… REMEMBER ME…”
Track Name: Realization
“I HAVEN’T THE TIME TO SAY TO YOU, ALL THAT I MUST SAY…”
“I HAVEN’T THE STRENGTH TO CARRY ON…”
“I TRIED SO HARD…I DID MY BEST…I GAVE YOU EVERYTHING I HAD…”

“WE ARE ON THE VERGE OF DESCENT…WHAT WE KNOW MUST NOW COME TO AN END…”

“I DON’T KNOW IF I’M READY… I DON’T KNOW IF I CAN MAKE IT…
I CAN’T SEE A LIFE WITHOUT YOU… I CAN’T SEEM TO FACE IT…”

“THE WAY OF THE WORLD IS CHOSEN…THE FINAL CHAPTER BEGINS…”
Track Name: A Dream of Dissolution
ALL MY LIFE YOU STAYED BESIDE ME…
THROUGH IT ALL YOU WERE MY STRENGTH…
I WALK ALONE THROUGH ENDLESS NIGHTS…
AND WAIT FOR YOU TO BRING THE LIGHT…

SO NOW, THE EMPTINESS CONSUMES ME…
THE LIGHT IN THIS WORLD BURNS AWAY…
IS THIS DREAM OR REALITY?
MY THOUGHTS TOO CLOUDED TO SEE…

AND HAVE I COME TO A CROSSING?
THE WOUNDS HAVE BEGUN TO BLEED…
THE DARKEST DAY THAT I HAVE EVER KNOWN…
HAS CAST IT’S SHADOW ON ME…

AND THIS DREAM OF DISSOLUTION…
IS NOT A DREAM AT ALL…
THE PAIN SEEMS TOO MUCH TO BEAR…
HELP ME TO END IT ALL…

“I’D GIVE MY LIFE JUST TO HOLD YOU AGAIN”
Track Name: The Funeral
THE FUNERAL GOES ON AND ON…THE FUNERAL GOES ON AND ON…

“SO MANY MEMORIES OF YOU…TOO MANY I CANNOT COUNT…
I MISS YOU MORE THAN YOU WILL EVER KNOW…
ALL YOU DID FOR ME, ALL YOU WERE…
I WILL REMEMBER YOU FOREVER…I WILL NEVER LET GO…”

THE FUNERAL GOES ON AND ON…THE FUNERAL GOES ON AND ON…
UNTIL WE SING THIS FINAL SONG…UNTIL EVERYONE YOU KNEW PASSES ON…
UNTIL EVERYTHING YOU WERE IS GONE.
