Track Name: ROTTING EMPIRE
ROTTING EMPIRE

Old tragedy commands them
A fatal dream inspires
The vicar waits in silence
Blood army leads the way
Pictures from an old crypt
Dark secrets never die
Oh come before the sunrise
Where is this paradise?

When will the prophets call us
Or will we walk alone
We flee a rotting empire
Decay defines their laws
Old veterans are weeping
While evil clowns are laughing
A poem from a widow
The silence of the mob

“rotting empire”
Track Name: VEIL
-Veil-

Welcome to my night
Hope...my destiny?
Solitude my refuge.
Mother of God be with me...
...through this valley of tears.
Lazarus where are you?
Heaven breaks through hell!

I pray, and I weep
Send us a Good Shepherd, never let us sleep.
Face upon a veil, heal my stony heart.
Veronica, behold the face of Love.

Break through the night.

Walking through this valley, filled with sorrow and doubt.
Choosing to believe, even in this dark night.
Carry me, I cannot even breathe.
Lift my dying spirit.

Break through the night.
Track Name: WOMB TO THE TOMB
WOMB TO THE TOMB

Here’s a story of a damaged old town
Plastic souls and melting rubber faces
The mayor sold his own family to slavery
Melancholic pastor courting ‘Lady Despair’
“The wicked are estranged from the womb”. (PS 58)

R/
Night-where is your son?
Fright-forever ours
Passion-when truth is sold
Misery-another stain
Wisdom-she weeps in vain
Light-where is the Son?

Bridge:
No one knows where that river flows
The blood of martyrs and native Angels
Disease takes over an entire tribe
The elders are hiding their bloody crimes
Awake and come now I say
Look at their faces, they’re made of clay
Mystical ventures for aging shamans
Wisdom and her offspring have left the land
Hear the choir of innocents
An ancient peoples have folded their tents
Justice is blind and so are we
Our souls are fractured and now we’re free

Here’s a story of a decrepit old town
Brought to ruins by a diabolical clown
They watched their village burn
They sold fallacies in return
And now a lowly one takes a crown.
Track Name: BLEEDING DOVE
BLEEDING DOVE

They feed us lies and lead us to doom
The edge of pain and sorrow fill a room
Another victim weeps and feeds the night
Obsession, dark confession fear light
Shattered mirror kills the fashion trolls
Bleeding hearts, dark mystery turns cold
The Dragon is old

Father Mourning waits for a bride
Priest is crying—healing broken minds
Look away, no reason to stay
Blood deception leads to a craze
Pray for mercy-see a passion for Love
Hear a weeping dove

Forbidden stories beckon new life
Electro-monsters stage a new fight
Machines are marching into the dawn
Romanian Coven is all but gone
Dark dirges, a dying dragon
Track Name: FREAK'S MIND
FREAK’S MIND

Dark side, something comes for you
Midnight, chanting ice cold blue
Freak’s mind, another tragedy
Inside, something lives in thee


The sky is almost grey
Century Bats are here to stay
Sadness consumes the night
Madness bleeds into dark light

Call the constable and pray
Something crude without a face
Mercy me, are they blind?
Even Dawn is out of time
Even Dawn is out of time
Track Name: THE EAST CRIES SON
THE EAST CRIES “SON”

Frozen ghosts of Siam, the rising of Blue Sun
Clean our wounds, heal our wounds
A bitter taste of vengeance, The Ruler dies in sin
Fear of tomorrow, age old sorrow
Aging wartime beatniks, the prison walls are stained
Absolution, execution
‘Zombie Race’ is losing, justice takes the night
Many fall, many lose
The warlords choose surrender; battle inside the mind

R/ Hear the East cry “Sun”
A new hope has dawned
Hear the East cry “Son”
Never fail the day


A Queen, she brings treasure, crushed a viper’s head
Prayer for the lost, never fear the cost
Ships are sailing away, madness claims the day
Broken minds, fractured souls
A new world is waiting, but who will pay the price?

R/
Track Name: THE EAST CRIES SON (Rage-Out Mix)
Music/Lyrics by Dean Mason of Gnostic Gorilla
Track Name: CHAOS FRANKENSTEIN
CHAOS FRANKENSTEIN

Frankenstein is lost in a dream
Madness and all that’s obscene
Crazy mob with hate in their chants
Elder has taken a stand
Behold the reign of chaos

R/
Moon shadow, Dark and Hollow
Innocent one, in the gallows
Agents of doom, pirates of gloom
Mind’s eye knows, the end is soon

“Warlord” has called on the crowd
Evil—it comes in so proud
Divine vision amidst division
Lawmen are not to be seen
A prayer for an ailing ‘prophet’
Hear the cry of the broken

R/

Pale faces wrapped in deception
Day of judgement is minutes away
No hope for the willing sadists
No peace for those who won’t pray
Museum for the culture vultures
Freak show for the wealthy and shallow
