Track Name: Doctor Device
Extraterrestrial
Insectoid race from another world
We must destroy out of our own ignorance
Formics we must destroy them all if we wish to survive

Mazer Rackham teach me how to defeat these foes
The intensity of my task is slowly wearing me down

Molecular disruption device
Doctor
Doctor Device

Use the weapons of destruction
I no longer wish to play this game
Kill every last one of them xenocide
This is no simulation

I have been cast out for my brilliance
There is no place for me on this earth
I will colonize this world

Psychic link between the Queen and I
Psychic link share with me your thoughts
Speaker for the dead

I will chronicle all that you have told me
I will chronicle all that I have heard
Hive Queen and the Hegemon
Track Name: Galactic Termination
Chamragnagar is on our heels, we’re running for our lives
Through space advance and escape demise
We are running out of time
We are running out of time
He exists in…

We see pillars of flame
The great burning entity engulfs what he has made
Eater of stars, destroyer of worlds

Chamragnagar is on our heels, running for our lives
Crushing planets to spacial dust
Caught in the gravitational pull

Inching slowly towards galactic termination
Inching slowly towards galactic termination

His face appears, we see
We see it now

(Solo - Rauch)

Inching slowly towards galactic termination
Inching slowly towards galactic termination
Inching slowly towards galactic termination
Inching slowly towards galactic termination
Track Name: Grave Of The Firegod
What lies in the crypt?

Demon’s blood used to write the grimoire of the dead
Incantations spoken in satanic dialects
The ground, burned, beneath where it lies
The text’s cover bound in demon hide

Inferno
Chaotic swirl
Ashes will fly
The anger of the firegod

The crypt blackened from the ash left in the air
Lost in a maze with no way out left to despair
Stumbling through dark my hands blackened and burned
In complete disarray the tunnel twists and turns

Inferno
Chaotic swirl
Ashes will fly
The grave of the firegod

Now burn the face of the earth and see it’s all the same
Burn the face of the earth, and see that nothing’s changed

(Solo - Rauch)

Now burn the face of the earth and see it’s all the same
Burn the face of the earth, and see that nothing’s changed

In the crypt power you sought
But in the end for life you fought
It held within secrets most dark
The grave of the firegod
Track Name: Mannequin Soldier
Marching forward always subservient
To the one known as the father

One horrific eye place in the forehead
Lines cover the bodies of the mannequins
Veins pumping with the blood of the innocent
Souls used to animate their corpses

Mannequin soldiers awaiting their orders
Kept a secret for thousands of years

One horrific eye place in the forehead
Lines cover the bodies of the mannequins
Clone upon clone ravaging
Manufactured by the military
The perfect undying soldier

Mannequin soldiers awaiting their orders
Kept a secret for thousands of years
Bodies sewn by the philosopher
Marching forward without any

Fear

(Solos - Rauch, Fenton)

Mannequin soldiers awaiting their orders
Kept a secret for thousands of years
Bodies sewn by the philosopher
Marching forward without any…
Track Name: Archaic Diabolical
A cynical, decrepit, aging man driven to insanity
Unable to accept his ever-present fate
He knows his time is slipping, falling, diminishing

His mind begins to unravel
Within the folds is something maniacal
Something horrific, grotesque, unthinkable
Within his mind, Archaic Diabolical!

Plotting underneath the earth
Lines begin to connect
Something in his mind just went and fucking snapped
His eyes begin to redden as his anger explodes

His mind begins to unravel
Within the folds is something maniacal
Something horrific, grotesque, unthinkable
Within his mind, Archaic Diabolical!

Bloodrage, intense disarray
The walls are splattered and stained
A work of art, though sickening and dark
The knife now placed at his throat

(Solo - Rauch)

Bloodrage, intense disarray
The walls are splattered and stained
A work of art, though sickening and dark
The knife now placed at his throat
Thrust within which quiets the din
Of the thoughts bedeviling his mind
Track Name: Saturnine
Our faces obscured
For those we deem unworthy
Below us they strive
Waiting for their time of glory

But the day shall not be theirs
Apostles to oblivion

With Saturn on our side
Carry his will through the night
From him we receive the call
We dub thee

Those of the Saturnine

Guardians of ancient knowledge
Prophecies as cryptic as the lies we were told
Harness the power of the stars
And unleash upon this world

Disappear in clouds of blood
Children of gloom

With Saturn on our side
Carry his will through the night
From him we receive the call
We dub thee

Those of the Saturnine

In majesty evoke his name
In secrecy we leave our mark
How does this scum resist our cause
We walk among them in plain sight

Years have passed inside our promised land
Ambrosia, our primal sustenance, keeps us immortal
From the parasite, from the parasite

Harness the flame, Harness the mist

Bow to the Saturnine!
Track Name: Confined
We are all destined to leave this earth
Nothing left behind but a scar in the dirt
The ephemeral nature of all mortal ties
The ever-present fear of a sudden demise

Ambivalent towards the outcome of life
Overwhelmed with the fear that it all won't suffice

A shadow looming at the precipice of night
It permeates throughout, all succumb to it's might
Thoughts that enfeeble, entangle the mind
The righteous are scorned as the feeble arise

Confined in this maze, where's the path where to go?
The light doesn't shine in these depths I'm alone

Cast out and broken / Spurned and rejected
Razed to the ground / Enslaved and subjugated
Show me a sign as I wander this earth
A slave to my thoughts, taken at birth

(Solo - Rauch)

Confined in this maze, where's the path, where to go?
The light doesn't shine in these depths I'm alone

Ambivalent towards the outcome of life
Overwhelmed with the fear that it all won't suffice
Confined in this maze, where's the path where to go?
The light doesn't shine in these depths I'm alone
Track Name: Lake Laogai
(Solo - Fenton)

Inside impenetrable walls a secret lies within
Facades of great magnitude keep the citizens docile
Led to believe, but made only to fear the cloaked ones

Disembodied hands extend from outstretched arms
Seeking to smother the truth behind the lies
Brainwashed minions rise before their masters
Lights circle endlessly hypnotizing creatures

Atrophy of the servants mind wears away like sand
Unable to withstand the questions she’s been asked

Cracks appear upon the walls meant to keep us safe
Evil works its way inside seeping through the city streets

(Solo - Rauch)

Lake Laogai the source of mind corruption
Lake Laogai the source of mind corruption

The vacation you never wanted to take

Lake Laogai the source of mind corruption

Secret catacombs deep beneath the city streets
The cloaked one’s lair - source of malevolence
Crystals line the wall leading down the way
Agents of the false king aid the hulking beast

Fire flows from the beast’s mouth
Brother betrays his own kin
The fallen prince honor is lost
Lighting bursts from the mortal hands

Your last trip down to Lake Laogai

(Solo - Valera Godin)

Disembodied hands extend from outstretched arms
Seeking to smother the truth behind the lies
Brainwashed minions rise before their masters
Lights circle endlessly hypnotizing creatures
Track Name: Progression Through Violence
Quell an uprising
Crush all morale
Let no hope shine through murky water
Beat them covered in blood and filth
Sit upon the throne

Progress can only be attained through violence
Instill within them fear so they may obey

Keep a foot firmly placed upon the head of all who believe
they can overthrow my reign

My control will carry on though death
This throne is mine
Track Name: The Silence Of The Sirens
Mistress of the sea, her beauty songs she plays
Twists the hearts of man
She resides upon corpses of the deceased,
Escape is futile

Condemned to suffer and die
Nothing more than a memory
Taking everything from you
Murdering the ones you love
See them die before your eyes
There is no hope left for them
Drowning just beneath the waves

Mistress of the sea, her beauty songs she plays
Twists the hearts of man
She resides upon corpses of the deceased,
escape is futile

She’s got her fingers ‘round your throat
Her gaze is oh so piercing
Nails ripping through the flesh
She’ll be the last thing you see
She will end you where you stand
You will see nothing
Drowning just beneath the...

(Solos - Rauch, Godin)

You will drown
You will drown
The Silence Of The Sirens
Track Name: Fresh Graves, Old Tombs
Cries sent from the earth to foster the belief
Beyond the veil of mortal ties weeping statues stand in salute
They signal arrival of demons that come from inside

Life dried up in drought the end of all belief
Before the face of spectral might crooked servants suffer
They carry the burden of fresh graves and old tombs

Like sand through an hourglass, time slips away
Like thoughts of affection, that will smolder and fade
Standing at the crossroads and I’m telling you now
There’s an answer to your questions and that answer's been found

Warpath, violence, you stand defiant
In world full of friction it all falls silent
You owe it nothing, so let it all go
Put this rope around your neck
What have you got to lose?

The aftermath, a sight to behold
A gruesome centerfold
A masterpiece put on display
Of life’s tendency to just give up and wither away
Track Name: Dark Horizons
When the sun begins to wane
That is when we’ll rise up and track those we seek
With undying lust the blood we smell sends us to another world
We lust to taste it once again!

Beyond this dark horizon, our mark has traveled
not far from us, our target lies in utmost still
Hiding from us, our rage filled frenzy
Approaching now, the one hunted

Thrill of the kill never gets old
A game of sickening and dark desire
Primal instincts kick in, taking over more so beast
Than there was ever man

Beyond this dark horizon, our mark has traveled
Not far from us our target lies in utmost still
Hiding from us, our rage filled frenzy
Approaching now, the one hunted

Pupils widen
Blood is pooling
Beneath the body

(Solos - Mike DeMaria, Rauch, Chris Kelly, Fenton)
