Track Name: NINETY NINE LOST
Ninety Nine Lost

Eh! Take them away
Ai! Another Saint dies
Shame! The shadow remains
Oh! The mob steals a clown
5-0! Burns down the town
Bang! The end of that game
Blue! The deception is true
Light! Rip through this night
Men! They lose all perspective

— Save us from ourselves —

Pain! Hides in the rain
Blast! From a higher caste
Power! Climb that gold tower
Sheep! Ninety nine lost
Prayer! The sorrow we share
Life! The tears and the strife
Home! Beware of the drones
You! Afraid of the dawn
They! They set all ablaze


War! Behind this old door
Passion! But fickle is fashion
Love! Free us from hatred
Prayer! The sorrow we share
Life! The tears and the strife
Lord! Hid not thy face
Track Name: GREY CHAOS
GREY CHAOS
They’re bracing for a melt-down
Bad connection, fading vision
Engineers breaking a code
Revelations of chaos
The end and the beginning

Et lux in tenebris lucet

The arrogant bending minds
Self righteous ones, no reception
The rejected understand
Not knowing—a door to truth?
The journey—the destiny?

Et lux in tenebris lucet

Dean Mason 2016
Track Name: HIDE THE GHOST
Hide the Ghost
Another old soul lost
The smell of Jasmine in the air
Melting visions, fractured mind
Ring for service, call for heaven

Ooh ooh...mystery consumes us

Hide the Ghost
Burn the diary
Sorrowful entries
Fragile moments and scattered hope

Ooh ooh

Frailty takes over
Despair enters the room
The Bishop sends a healer
Last Rites for a fading dream
Why all these penitents?
Why this moment now?

Take my hand, my Beloved
My all...

Dean Mason 2016
Track Name: THE DRACULA EFFECT
The Dracula Effect
I saw them coming
Heard their twisted chants
Marching towards oblivion
Rotting carcasses and shallow graves

R/ Hatred kills the dawn...

They feed us to the lions
Zombie warlords dance
Collective madness consumes us
Here come the horsemen
Take back the dawn

Track Name: CARAVAN OF LOST SOULS
-Caravan of Lost Souls-

Another battle
Another day
The Queen is fleeing
Welcome a stray
Fading in the streets
No one will miss us
Respecting the old code
A banal brand of justice

...Caravan of Lost Souls...

So many faces
So many fragile souls
They wander aimless
Another dream they stole
They understand
It’s never as it seems
Survival and passion
So raw, so mean


Dean Mason 2016
Track Name: SEPTEMBER CAMPAIGN
September Campaign

Hands on the table
Forming a plan
Warriors and battle lizards
No heart for ‘Versailles’

Call for the Fuhrer
Prepare the cavalry
March into Austria
A storm for Prague

September Campaign
The Wehrmacht are dancing
Funeral procession
The world is ablaze
The world is deceived.


Fire. The world is on fire.

Track Name: DONA NOBIS PACEM
DONA NOBIS PACEM

Une vision qui nous fait peur
Un autre malade un autre sans cœur
Jamais encore ...ils nous on dit
Hostilité et violence
La paix sur terre jamais commence
Voilà des monstres et des vautours
Un ange vient guérir les blessures
Jamais encore ...Ils nous ont dit

Seigneur viens donc nous libérer
Une vie plus belle nous procurer
Pourquoi encore rivières de sang ?
Cherchons-nous un meilleur plan?
Nos cœurs ils sont tous fracturés
Les innocents on doit pleurer
Un requiem pour un vieux rêve
Un monde déchu ...tous comme l'enfer
Mon Dieu Mon Dieu on te supplie
Jamais encore… ils nous on dit.

Dean Mason 2016
Track Name: BLACK HORNET
BLACK HORNET

Oh nightmare, oh nightmare—chased by a Lion
Old wizard, Blue Lizard—dealing in fantasy
Sister Mania, tattooed cranium
Padre Rebellion, old lies they’re sellin
Trapped in a cage, feeding their rage

Come Prudence, oh dance with Fate
Black Hornet, where is thy sting?
Mister Nostalgia, covered in Lava
Cyborg Bats—feeding on aristocrats
Drones on patrol—looking for trolls

Drag Queens and Sadhus—selling E-voodoo
Reception of deception—mind bend
Nasty connection—plastic election
Overdose—call the ice agents
Puppets with green eyes on velvet walls
None of this is real—really?!

Dean Mason 2016
Track Name: EPHRAIM'S DREAM
EPHRAIM’S DREAM

Rebuke me not, O Lord, in thy anger...

Where’s the One? Oh where’s thy chosen?
Look there
Why this mission? Why these snares?
Look around
Break these chains, free the Elders
Holy Ground
Weep for Zion, weep forever
Look no more

R/ Oh Sun, the sky is bleeding
Oh Son, the moon is falling
Old Son, the desert is dying
The One, the earth is crying

Frail and broken, real power comes
Within
Sanctuary, for the lost ones
Open hearts
White Wolves, Lady Mourning
Heal us
Old Tribe is found
New Adam

Dean Mason 2016
Track Name: LITHIUM PARADE
Lithium Parade

I – so fragile so lost
Why—this jaded perspective
Lies—give them E-candy
You—your dream is on fire
Pain—is all just illusion

Lies inside
Lies they hide

...hey hey hey

I never believed their stories but was intrigued...wanted to believe...wanted to grieve...

Look inside
Look inside

I—see a red flag
You—voted for penance
We—never found solace
They—can’t sell us their madness
I—so fragile so lost
Pain—is just an illusion

Track Name: CODE ZION
CODE ZION
Code Zion….

From behind the mask of chaos and sorrow
The Son will pierce through the dark night of this age
See the Lion, O daughter of Zion

R/ Don’t fall for deception
ZION
Don’t turn away
ZION


O Daughter of Zion

Track Name: A NIGHT WITHOUT SLEEP
A Night Without Sleep

Visions of nothing
Surrounded by faces
Time is a concept I’ve failed to grasp

The shadows on my wall---become me

Hold me—I’m fading

My heart—a lonely machine

Weeping with an angel

Hold me—I’m fading
Angel weeping with me

Track Name: PHANTOM MIMES
Phantom Mimes
Wait for the sirens
The war machines are in decline
What have we started
What sort of game is this?

Stay awake
Let them stay
Behold
The purple dawn
Tragic stories
Old fairy tales

Phantom Mimes

I’ve never seen a sorrow such as thine
I’ve never seen a soldier dance to die
I’ve never voted for the “Earth Kings”
I’ve never felt a sorrow such as mine

Will you pray for those who lie?
Will you weep for those who die?
I’ve never seen a sorrow such as thine.

Phantom Mimes

Track Name: ARROGANT PUPPETS
Arrogant Puppets

Puppets—dancing in the fire
Crying, “our days are numbered”.
Seek first the Kingdom

Why?

Empty fantasies for godless men
Plastic bouquets, for paper dolls...
...the blind, the arrogant, the unbelievers, the faded dreams

Why?
