Track Name: Rise
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Ruined
Hold on
Hold on to something
Stay for the hilt of the sword you forged
Stand up and go
Your word is law
Now stand

Fate is laughing at me
I cannot escape, escape this realm
A victim drifting through tides of flame

What a terrible horror
My will escapes, my soul is void
Loathing the rise of the same torturous sun

Breathe deep to calm your thoughts
Hold firm with trembling hands
I have run from myself for too long
To find my way back home

Its tearing me up inside

Darkness stirs inside my troubled mind
Chains that bind forged from my design
Ingrained are words of fear and doubt
Constrict my will, I’ll prevail

Left drowning in the horrors of yesterday
Gather your strength now

Leave out fear of the wicked
So lost now in something I can’t break
What I’ve become is something without shape

Its tearing me up inside

Breathe deep to calm your thoughts
Track Name: Rebirth
I will never see the sun shining on pure soil
Reborn into a world plagued in turmoil
Pushed far from light

This kingdom’s torn
Torn between rulers of fallacy
Words of malice drip from the mouth of the reflection

You are my, You are my fears and my doubts
Spawned from within

Kneel before my throne creature of soil
You are my flawed design
You are the chains bind
You made you face from mine
Rise

The flames we have sewn will consume our fields
Soil once rich now plagued in turmoil

This kingdom’s torn
Torn between rulers of fallacy
Words of malice drip from the mouth of the reflection

You are my, You are my fears and my doubts
Spawned from within

Kneel at my throne
You are my flawed design
You are the chains bind
You made you face from mine

Burn, Burn your Sovereign
Destroy your throne

Burn, Burn your Sovereign and destroy your throne
Your throne

Burn your Sovereign now, burn your sovereign and destroy, destroy your throne

Burn your Sovereign now, burn your sovereign and restore, restore this body

Rise, rise to your own
Become whole

Kneel before my throne creature of soil
Track Name: Regicide
Cold creeping deep in my skin
This crown is one of thorns, thorns from within

Who are you?
Identify yourself
You wear your face the same as mine
I’m just sick of this fiction
Its so deceiving
We share a face, but there’s more to me than you know

This world’s no picture perfect, bleak seas and shattered skies
Cold piercing eyes behind me
All thrones are made of thorns now, thorns from within

Who are you?
Identify yourself
You wear your face the same as mine
I’m just sick

Majesty, how firm will your hand hold?
What will you cling to with all your prophets dead?

Words spoken like a true king
Brick by brick you lay them down
Your throne is built on consulate lies

Cold creeping deep in my skin
This crown is one of thorns, thorns from within

Who are you?
Identify yourself
You wear your face the same as mine
I’m just sick of this fiction
Its so deceiving
We share a face, but there’s more to me than you know

Majesty, how firm will your hand hold?
What will you cling to with all your prophets dead?
Track Name: Reign
(Instrumental)
