Track Name: Consequences
CONSEQUENCES
We walk through a wasted land
To pluck the seeds from the earth
Growth will lapse into decline
A shroud of filth blots the sun from the sky

Down—dark and deep

Stand horrified
By the exercise of rapacious greed
No subtlety
Face the consequences of ages spent
In service of—first and only to—conquest and dominance

Go down and deep, forever sleep
Beneath the earth
Beneath the dearth of tranquility
Abandon the memories

Escape
Forget
Escape and forget

Sleep
forever
Sleep

Growth now lapsed, we’re in decline
The sun hangs low, then drops from sight
Eternal, unending night
Track Name: Legions
LEGIONS
“Everything can change”
So thrive on this hope
Pursue this reward
But failure—it seems—must intervene
Progress gives way to defeat

A mind made weak by tiring trials
Occupied solely by thoughts of release
Collapse to your knees
As the legions of Death say to you:

“No one will love you the way that we love you
Feel peace so serene in our touch”
No one will love you the way that they love you
Fall deep into sleep and escape
The prison you made for yourself
