Track Name: Planetcracker
Cold
We drift through the void
Blind to the stars
As we wait for our gods to arrive
Black hole
Of the Soul
The event horizon of doom

Formless and cold
Mortality looms
We are tethered to death like a stone
Hope fades away
Our orbit decays
While uncaringly space watches on

So come
Discard the husk
Shed your old skin
Convergence awaits for the pure
Eternal life just a swift death away
Devotion mortality's cure

Formless and cold
Mortality looms
We are tethered to death like a stone
Hope fades away
Our orbit decays
While uncaringly space watches on

Formless and cold
Mortality looms
We are tethered to death like a stone
Hope fades away
Our orbit decays
While uncaringly space watches on

Immeasurably old
Nothingness looms
We all become part of the void
As life fades away
The pious all pray
While uncaringly
Indifferently
Space watches on
Track Name: Rookwood Lurch
Ghouls call and revenants call
Hell has come to Earth
Dead eyes under pale skies
Witness death's rebirth
Yeah

We fight a hopeless fight
Crushed beneath necropolis' might
Beneath a writhing sea of dead
Our kind will drown
We'll pay this toll in blood
Punishment of a vengeful God
With the gates of hell swung wide
Our world comes crashing down

The dead rise, humanity dies
Revenge of the Gods complete
Bleached bones, empty thrones
Mankind in defeat
Yeah

Watch as the veil is sundered and torn
Corruption of spirit in undeath reborn
Suffer the wrath of a brutal God's scorn
Necropolis rises tonight

YEEEAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH
Track Name: Swampfoot
Walking down this river
How long I'll never know
Walking down this river
Creeper vines growing thicker as I go
This forest is full of life
But none that I wish to know
Walking down this river
How long I'll never know

But this swamp foot
Has finally taken it's toll
Walking down this river
How long I'll never know
My path is fraught with snares
More dangerous as I go
Walking down this river
How long I'll never know

I feel the mocking burn of your eyes cut to my soul
Hacking and burning a path through the night as black as coal
I'm gonna find you alive or dead
No delusion of right and wrong
Walking down this river
I sing my lonely song

But this swamp foot
Has finally taken it's toll
Walking down this river
How long I'll never know
Risks steepen each stride I take
This ambition I've made my own
Walking down this river
How long I'll never know

But this swamp foot
Has finally taken it's toll
Walking down this river
Solace I've never known
Risks steepen each stride I take
This ambition I've made my own
Walking down this river
How long I'll never know
Track Name: Shitwizard
Adept in the art of self-deceit
Clothed in a robe knit of lies
High Priest of the hypocrites
I see through your guise

Demagogue of the rats
Lord of the flies
A Conjurer of fantasy
Transmuter of lies

So cast stones from your lonely tower
Built not of ivory but shit
But surely you see what you've come to be
A master hypocrite

It's all in your head
Shitwizard

Enslaved by your delusions
Your little world of fantasy
A fraudulent scryer
The ultimate liar
A walking fallacy

It's all in your head
Shitwizard

It's all in your head

ShitwizzZAAAAAAAAAAEEEEEERRRDDDDD
