Track Name: False Idol
I am petrified
A slow ascending shade
Flesh made crystalline
Drawn out like a silver blade
In time
False idols I worship
Bring me to my knees
Exalted in death
To avarice a monument
Everything I coveted so becomes my way
A monument to avarice
In precious stone remade
I was transformed by
My wicked will in life
Flesh made crystalline
Drawn out like a silver blade
In time
False idols I worship
Bring me to my knees
Exalted in death
To avarice a monument
Track Name: Trance Monolith
High corporeal
Medium's circle
Violet torches light the grove
Black mass ritual initiation
Indoctrinated from birth
Born and dead in a trance
Empty vessel
Shambling golem
Hollow man
Born and dead in a trance
Born and dead
Pandemonium
At end of empire
Hounds will feast upon hounds
Holy monolith
Dissonant master
Indoctrinated from birth
Track Name: Triple Gemini
Phantom in the glass
Split by the prism and returned to ash
A silhouette that casts a twin collapses
Like burning candle wax
Triple gemini
Nothing but human behind the eyes
The blood runs slow and cold under disguises
We homunculi
Children of our times
In mirrored trine
Black lambs painted white
Homunculi
Children of our times
Dowsed in lye
And drunk on ether
Bastard child
In mirrored trine
Homunculi
Blessed by fire
And reborn in the pyre
Track Name: Dark Sun
Finer eclipse
Horizon of cut diamond
Waves it emits
Drowns the world in darkness
Solar abyss
Love's light cannot escape it
Lantern of Nyx
Bathes the mind in sadness
The star above my bed
Is a dark sun that never sets
Spirit adrift upon a sea of shadow
Nocturnal gift
Tips the entropic arrow
Temporal shift
The years fold into hours
Lantern of Nyx
Bathes the mind in sadness
The star above my bed
Is a dark sun that never sets
Track Name: Glass Cathedrals
Your hopes are like glass cathedrals
Hidden from the light
And your dreams are like glass cathedrals
They fracture so easily
This world is like a glass cathedral
It was built to shatter
Your heart was like a glass cathedral
It was meant to break
Track Name: Embers
By the warmth of burning bridges
I will keep this dream alive
Like a comet catching fire
Immolating on my way into the sun
Fading light in me
Fever dreams of the devil's horsemen
Burned in effigy
By the will of masonic forces
Like lungs lamenting oxygen
Ash and embers decorate the road ahead
And the emperors have lost their heads
Ash and embers decorate the loneliness
Ego death as my arms blister
Pain subsides as I let go
Fading light in me
Fever dreams of the devil's horsemen
Burned in effigy
By the will of masonic forces
Ancient enemy in the heart of every mirror
Bleak infinity at the end of every road
Track Name: Pale Heart
Distant thunder
Shroud of grey
To electric gods I pray
Ivory tower
Modern way
Flowers wilt and colours fade
Every night and every morn
Some to misery are born
Some are born to sweet delight
Some are born to endless night
The curator of a pale heart
dreaming of the days it had a pulse
Framed in silver
Raised in shade
Fragile psyche born from pain
A millennium in a day
Graceful degradation of my faith
From the shores of love I depart
The curator of a pale heart
Null and void
Track Name: Stone Devils
We are all dragging tablets
Every sin etched into the slab
Mortal flesh is like marble
Each of us is the sculptor and the stone
And I would sell my soul
So we could live forever
But after all is said and done
Even devils turn to stone
I am chained to a gargoyle
Shackled by the choices I have made
Like a parody of Atlas
I am crushed under this demon's weight
Devils turn to stone
And I would sell my soul
So we could live forever
But after all is said and done
Even devils turn to stone
And now I'm so far from my home
But after all is said and done
Even devils turn to stone
